U.S. and North Korea Summit
The U.S. -North Korea Summit is back on. This is like Ross and Rachel on Friends. I guess President Trump and Kim Jong-un were just on a break.
In the news
U.S.-North Korea Summit
The Summit is now back on. This is getting confusing. President Trump’s name on the Nobel Peace Prize is going to be engraved in pencil.
This is great news. For a moment there I thought I was going to be stuck with 10,000 shirts that say, “My President went to the U.S.-North Korea Summit and all I got was this lousy T-shirt.”
President Trump and Kim Jong-un are busy preparing for the Summit. They are thinking of new names to call each other.
…If they are stuck, I’m sure Roseanne Barr and Samantha Bee can help them out.
U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem
In gratitude for the move of the U.S. Embassy to Jerusalem, an Israeli soccer club is renaming itself after President Trump. They also plan to give the other teams demeaning nicknames, label the league standings as fake, and defend their goal by building a wall around it.
It must be tough to move an Embassy. Where do you find a U-Haul that has security clearance?
Royal Wedding Gifts
Harry and Meghan are reportedly returning over $9M in wedding gifts. The couple talked it over and decided they didn’t need 45,000 toaster ovens.

$9M in wedding gifts! Where are they registered? Fort Knox?
Actually, it’s government regulations that prohibits them from accepting certain gifts. Meghan said, “I wish I had known about this rule before I started writing the Thank You notes.”
Imaging returning $9M worth of wedding gifts. I hope they all weren’t from one store.
They even had to return matching bathing suits that the manufacturer was hoping they would wear on their honeymoon. Now they have to find a honeymoon spot that has a nude beach.

My wife and I finally found a cruise we could afford. We had nice accommodations, though. We were the third oar from the front.
The only way my wife and I could afford to go on a cruise was to swim alongside the boat.
We made a lot of friends, though – mostly sharks.
My wife and I had to shop around for a cruise that we could afford. We finally found a good deal on a ship that had sprung a leak.
It was listed as a cruise to the Caribbean…well, part way to the Caribbean.
They had a lovely swimming pool onboard…which eventually took over the entire ship.
The staterooms were free. The life preservers cost over $2,000 apiece.

I rarely have nightmares. I have enough problems during the day to last me through the night.
My idea of a nightmare is someone else telling me about a dream they had.
I enjoy being creative even while I sleep. I like to take nightmares and give them a happy ending.

My eyesight is very bad. My driver’s license says, “Must have a seeing-eye dog with him in the car at all times.”
I can’t even read Braille. Apparently, I have bad eyesight in my fingers, too.
If my buddy and I hook up with two girls at a bar, he always says, “I’ll take the pretty one.” And I never know which one that is.
Bats have bad eyesight but they get around with sonar. That doesn’t work for me because I have bad hearing, too.
