"JOKE OF THE MONTH"
The rules are simple to win: No "xxx" jokes, sorry. Kit Menkin cannot win (relatives, friends and employees can enter and win). Please note, if in the decision of the judges there is no "best" joke, a previous month may be included, and like in horseshoes, there are no ties. Winners of previous months can also win a second or third time - There is no limit.
me your favorite joke. The first one to send it, not only gets the credit,
but a good bottle of wine or a box of chocolates (the winners choice).

Ted Parker is a long time friend, and he sends in some very good jokes. I am glad he is finally recognized. I asked him for a biography:
I grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio and after serving a mandatory two year stint in the Army, graduated from the University of Cincinnati, ready to take on the world.
My first job after college was in the trust department of one of the local banks. Cincinnati is conservative enough but add to that a bank and the trust department and you are talking about the slow lane. I left the bank and entered the world of equipment finance and leasing with a subsidiary of McGraw-Edison, a NYSE company. My new employer was, among other things, involved in franchising (One Hour Martinizing, Econo-Wash, etc.) and allowed us to finance other franchise operations. We became involved in leasing as we began to finance leases for a local leasing company.
After being transferred to Los Angeles, I really got hooked on leasing and felt it was where the future was in equipment finance. I joined a local, third-party lessor and from there eventually ended up with positions in equipment leasing with two of the world's largest banks. As I traveled the leasing highway, I became convinced that the industry needed a training/reference guide and wrote and published "Marketing the Equipment Lease".
When my last bank employer called it quits, so did I. I started my own leasing company and developed and published "Guidebook of Leasing Documentation and Forms" and "Winning Leases with TValue5" that are among a number of leasing related products on our website, www.theleasinglibrary.com .
I'm still active in leasing, doing both commercial and government leases. I'm divorced (ex forgot to give 90 days notice of intent to renew) with two grown sons and four grandchildren.
My hobbies are fly-fishing and fly tying and I have been fortunate to be able to fish most of the quality waters in the western U.S.
Still looking down on the grass!
