An American battleship ship is traveling at night around Canada when the radio comes on. It says “Canadian Navy to American Battleship, we have detected that you are on a collision course with us. Please alter your course 5 degrees north by north-east to avoid collision, over.”

The ship’s captain looks at his crewmates, gives them a wink, and picks up the radio. He replies, “American Battleship to Canadian Navy, you are on a collision course with us. Please alter *your* course 5 degrees south by southwest to avoid collision. Over.”

The radio comes back on. “Canadian Navy to American Battleship, we can’t do that. Please alter your course 5 degrees north by north-east to avoid collision. Over.”

The captain takes the radio and, in his best show of authority, says “American Battleship to Canadian Navy. We are the USS Lincoln, one of the largest naval vessels in the entire US navy, and escorted by multiple support ships. If you do not alter your course, we will be forced to defend ourselves to avoid collision. Over.”

The radio goes silent for a moment.

Finally, it comes back on. “Canadian Navy to American Battleship. We are a lighthouse. Your call. Over.”

Fun Fact:  

  • Deer have an excellent sense of smell that they constantly improve by licking their noses to keep them moist. The shape of a deer’s foot allows it to survive in most habitats, such as a rainforest or tundra. Just like cows, deers have a four-chambered stomach. Deer do not have gallbladders.

“U.S. corn exports set a record in 2021 at $18.7 billion. The sharp increase was attributed to China’s increased demand for imported corn and reduced competition from Brazil and Ukraine in other markets. Exports to China totaled $5.1 billion, sharply up from last year’s record. China became the largest destination for U.S. corn.” USDA

Pavlov’s birds

An MIT student spent an entire summer going to the Harvard football field every day wearing a black and white striped shirt, walking up and down the field for ten or fifteen minutes throwing birdseed all over the field, blowing a whistle and then walking off the field. At the end of the summer, it came time for the first Harvard home football team, the referee walked onto the field and blew the whistle, and the game had to be delayed for a half hour to wait for the birds to get off of the field. The guy wrote his thesis on this, and graduated.

Talking Horse” joke

A jogger running down a country road is startled as a horse yells at him, “Hey – come over here, buddy.” The jogger is stunned but runs over to the fence where the horse is standing and asks, “Were you talking to me?”
The horse replies, “Sure was, man. I’ve got a problem. I won the Kentucky Derby a few years ago and this farmer bought me and now all I do is pull a plow and I’m sick of it. Why don’t you run up to the house and offer him $5,000 to buy me. I’ll make you some money cause I can still run.”
The jogger thought to himself, “Boy, a talking horse.”
Dollar signs started appearing in his head. So he runs to the house and the old farmer is sitting on the porch. The jogger tells the farmer, “Hey, man, I’ll give you $5,000 for that old broken down nag you’ve got in the field.”
The farmer replies, “Son, you can’t believe anything that horse says – he’s never even been to Kentucky.”
