1. Spots

When I was in junior high school, there was a girl in my class whose nickname was "Spots". They called her that because she was always covered in bruises. Sometimes I saw her crying in school. My friends told me her father was violent and abusive. I felt sorry for her. One day I met her mother. She was haggard and covered in bruises as well. It was a sad situation.

A few years later, I heard from my friends that Spots' father had died of a heart attack. Later, I ran into Spots and her mother in the street. Spots looked happy and healthy, but her mother still looked haggard and bruised.

Another few years passed and I hadn't heard anything from Spots. One day, I was shopping at the mall when I happened to meet her mother. She was looking very happy and healthy. I rushed over and introduced myself. Then, I asked her how Spots was doing.

"Oh, she died in a car crash a few months ago," her mother replied.

I was so shocked, I couldn't say anything. It was so sad.


2. Alcohol

I'm a scientist. For years, I've been working on a chemical that turns water into alcohol. I think it's going to make me rich. All you do is put one drop of this chemical in a glass of water and it will instantly be transformed into pure alcohol. It works on tap water, well water, rainwater, anything that contains water. I think I've perfected it. Now, all that remains is to see how it tastes. Let me take a sip. Mmmmmm. Tastes good. Eactly like alchol. Nobody coud tell the diffence.

3. Bowling Ball

"Did you know that the human head is the same weight as a bowling ball?" my friend asked.

He thinks he's so smart. He has a book of random facts and he keeps bringing them up in conversation.

"Yeah, I already knew that," I said.

4. Robber

There was a young couple who had been dating for two years. On her birthday, the girl decided to invite her boyfriend over to her apartment. She wanted them to have a romantic dinner together. The young man agreed.

On the night of her birthday, as she was preparing the special dinner, she got a phonecall. It was her boyfriend.


"I'm sorry," he said. "I've got to stay late at work. I have a very important deal to take care of."

The girl was furious. She shouted at him and hung up the phone. All alone and miserable, she sat down at the table and started eating the food she had prepared for both of them.

Just then, the lights went off and she was plunged into darkness. She heard footsteps creeping up behind her and a hand grabbed her shoulder. The girl screamed and swung the fork she was holding in her hand. There was a dull thud as her attacker fell to the floor.

She hurried to her bedroom, locked the door and called the police. A few minutes later, two officers arrived and entered the apartment. They identified themselves and the girl unlocked her bedroom door. She waited while they searched the apartment.

When they came back, one of the policemen said, "There's a dead man lying on your kitchen floor with a fork stuck in his throat."

The girl broke down in tears. The policemen tried to comfort her.

"I didn't mean to kill him," she sobbed. "It was self-defence."

"Yes," said the policeman. "It looks like the robber was trying to steal this wedding ring."
