Two Great Reagan Jokes

In a classic Reagan joke, 
a man says sympathetically to his friend, 
"I'm so sorry your wife ran away with the gardener." 
The guy answers, "It's OK, I was going to fire him anyway."

As winter began, the young teacher sought to impart 
to her third-graders the importance of dressing warmly. 
She told the heart-rending story of her little brother, 
a fun-loving boy who went out with his sled 
and stayed out too long, caught a cold, 
then pneumonia, and days later died. There was 
dead silence in the schoolroom as they took it in. 
She knew she'd gotten through. 
Then a voice came from the back: 
"Where's the sled?"
