Just thought to share a landscape joke. Maybe others have more?

Question: How does the DOGwood tree get its name?
Answer: From its BARK.

I know. All caps is yelling at this site. Just using it here in a different context.

Very wet turf lately in northern Ohio. Thought other could use some humor.

Hey Foxcare,

Great joke! That one sure could cheer up some over worked snow plowers during the worst of storms.

A young women was on her way back from work during a terrible blizzard one December night. The roads were getting very bad and she remembered some advice her father gave her a few years back. "If the roads get bad to drive in, just stay behind the plow truck until it gets closer to the neighborhood. Well the girl spotted a plow heading down the road and got behind it like her father told her to do. Well, after about 2 hours of following the truck during a normal 15 minute drive home, the plow truck operator got out of his truck and let the girl know " I just noticed you following me around. I'm done plowing the shopping center parking lot now, did you need something?

LOL :rolleyes:

I remember it being a little funnier, I must be telling it wrong or something?

This old guy is walking down the street when he notices two young city workers working on the median. He notices that one of them is busting his hump digging a hole about 30" across and about 24" and then moving about 20 feet and digging another hole. THe second guy goes behind him and is filling in the holes as fast as the first city worker is digging them. The old guy watches this for a while to make sure his isn't hallucinating. He decides that he isn't and goes out to talk to the young guys.

Old guy "What are you guys doing out here?!?!"

City worker 1 (dumb look on his face) "What do you mean?"

Old guy "I mean; why are you digging these holes only to have
him fill them right back in?

The two city workers look at eachother and finally understand what the guy is talking about.

City worker 2 "Well the guy that plants the trees called in sick

I never said it would be a great joke.

Well, there was this eXmark driver that had a kid at high school. Seems a note got sent home that the principal wanted to see the dad about Junior. So dad stops at the school between cuttings and goes to the principal’s office. He wants to know what the problem is with Junior. The principal says, “You really have to see this, I just can’t explain it.” So the principal calls Junior down to the office. He turns to dad and says, “Watch this!” The says to Junior, “I want you to tell me who shot Abraham Lincoln.” Junior responds, “I don’t know and I don’t give a damn.” The principal turns to the dad and says, “See what I mean?” Dad is really upset, he grabs Junior’s shirt and pulls him to him until their faces are just inches apart. He looks Junior straight in the eye and very sternly says, “You answer the man and if you had anything to do with it you’re in BIG trouble.”
