IT IS Halloween week! And so I will say a Halloween joke. Kwento ito ng isang golfer sa akin. He said—During Halloween night, I shouted up the stairs to the wife. "Honey there's a witch at the door. What should I do?" She replied, "Just give her some sweets and tell her to get lost." My mother-in-law hasn't spoken to me eversince.
The Tournament of Champions of Rancho Palos Verdes has concluded. Before I congratulate the champions, I would like to mention who the contenders were.

Golf Joke: So many congratulations. Let’s have a break. Joke time!
At the clubhouse bar, Juan was drinking too much alcohol and was getting very drunk. His golfing buddy, Pedro, was concerned for him and so he approached Juan to console him. “Pare,” Pedro said, “I heard you broke off your engagement with Cristina.” Pedro continued. And Juan replied, “Oo, Pare. She does not love me anymore.” Then Pedro said, “You should have told her about your rich uncle in Manila, Pare.” And Juan replied, “I did, Pare. And now she is marrying my uncle instead. Magiging tita ko na siya bukas.”
Advance Happy Halloween!!!
