Here are a couple from Patsy Cline, about whom I'd forgotten (because originally, I didn't like her that much) until the too-short-lived Space Oater Above and Beyond reminded me of her.
And this one, which I've been wondering why I didn't like as a kid (oh, wait…).
And a propos nothing much in particular,
A man went to the zoo and among other animals there, saw a gnu in its pen. "What kind of a gnu is that?" he asked the keeper."It's just a typical gnu."A couple days later the guy returned. This time there was a stack of tiles in the gnu pen, and the gnu was applying them to the floor of its pen. The man said in surprise to the keeper, "Hey, I thought you said that was a typical gnu. But he's putting tiles on the cage floor!""Yeah. He's a typical gnu and a tiler too."
A frog went to a bank for a loan, and the teller sent him to see the loan officer, Mr Paddiwack. He went to Paddiwack 's desk and made his pitch for the loan. When the loan officer asked the frog if he had any collateral, the frog pulled out a small ivory figurine of an elephant and set it on the desk. The loan officer looked dubious and said "Hold on a minute."The loan officer went to his manager, and explained the situation, and said that all the frog had was the figurine as collateral. The manager looked at the small statue and said "It's a nick-nack, Paddiwack. Give the frog a loan."
