This Week’s Jokes: Week of 10/13/14

A couple in Georgia was arrested and charged with cruelty to children in the first degree after allegedly giving their two-year-old son a mixed drink made of Coke and 40 proof Paul Masson Brandy. “Cruelty?” said the parents. “If we were trying to be cruel, we would have given him Jack Daniels.”

New York City’s John F. Kennedy International Airport is the first in the U.S. to start screening passengers for Ebola symptoms. When asked why start in NYC, officials said, “New York, New York! If you can get it here, you can get it anywhere!”
