The house we use to live at had moles. They would keep the dog entertained for hours. Zen, our chocolate Lab would look at the ground and move around following the sound of the moles digging through the tunnels in the yard.

One day a friend came over and saw this and asked what is your dog doing. I looked up and saw that Zen was bouncing around sniffing the ground like he always did chasing moles. I relied, “I don’t know, he’s been like that ever since we took him with us to the circus and he seen those clown dogs perform.”

“Well aint that interesting,” was his reply.

“Hell, that aint nothing, you ought to see it when he tries to walk on a basket ball,” I said.

“I gotta see this, where’s the basket ball?” He said.

“I don’t know, I think the moles took it under ground and he’s been trying to get it back ever since.” (grin)


A mama mole, a papa mole, and a baby mole all live in a little mole hole.

One day the papa mole sticks his head out of the hole, sniffs the air and says, “Yum! I smell maple syrup!”

The mama mole sticks her head out of the hole, sniffs the air and says, “Yum! I smell honey!”

The baby mole tries to stick his head out of the hole to sniff the air, but can’t because the bigger moles are in the way. So he says, “All I can smell is molasses.”


Deep within a forest a little turtle began to climb a tree. After hours of effort he reached the top, jumped into the air waving his front legs and crashed to the ground. After recovering, he slowly climbed the tree again, jumped, and fell to the ground.

The turtle tried again and again while a couple of birds sitting on a branch watched his sad efforts. Finally, the female bird turned to her mate.

“Dear,” she chirped, “I think it’s time to tell him he’s adopted.”

A mother and baby camel are talking one day when the baby camel asks, “Mom why have I got these huge three toed feet?”

The mother replies, “Well son, when we trek across the desert your toes will help you to stay on top of the soft sand”.

“OK” said the son. A few minutes later the son asks, “Mom, why have I got these great long eyelashes?”

“They are there to keep the sand out of your eyes on the trips through the desert”, the camel mother answers.

“Thanks Mom” replies the son. After a short while, the son returns and asks, “Mom, why have I got these great big humps on my back??”

The mother, now a little impatient with the boy replies, “They are there to help us store water for our long treks across the desert, so we can go without drinking for long periods.”

“That’s great mom, so we have huge feet to stop us sinking, and long eyelashes to keep the sand from our eyes and these humps to store water, but… Mom?”

“Yes son?”

“Why the heck are we in the San Diego zoo?”


have a mole-less day
