Some years ago, before the fall of the U.S.S.R., a Russian couple was walking down the street in St. Petersburg when the man felt a drop hit his nose. “I think it's raining,” he said to his wife.

“No,” she replied, “that felt more like snow to me.”

“Oh, I'm sure it was rain,” he said.

Well, as these things go, they were about to have a major argument about whether it was raining or snowing when they saw a minor Communist Party official walking toward them. “Let's not fight about it,” the man said. “Let's ask Comrade Rudolph whether it's officially raining or snowing.”

As the official approached, the man said, “Tell us, Comrade Rudolph, is it officially raining or snowing?”

“It's raining, of course,” he answered, and walked on.

But the woman insisted, “I know that felt like snow!”

To which the man quietly replied, “Rudolph the Red knows rain, dear!”

From the Department of Cogito, Ergo Sum:

René Descartes walks into a bar and orders a drink. When he finishes, the bartender asks him if he would like another. “I think not,” Descartes replies, and promptly disappears in a puff of logic.

Sometimes when this is told as, “A Clydesdale walks into a bar...,” only philosophy students will laugh. So you need to explain the background first, which puts Descartes before the horse.

The chicken asks, “Do you know anywhere that does?”

“Yeah,” the bartender replies. “It's right across the road.”

A chicken farmer is collecting eggs one day, and under his best layer he only finds a penny. The next day instead of eggs there is a quarter. And on the third day he finds a nickel. Since he's very fond of this bird, he gathers her up and takes her to the vet.

The vet examines the chicken and doesn't find anything wrong. So she asks the farmer why he brought her in. The farmer tells her what's been going on, and then he says, “What's happening?”

“Oh, I don't think it's anything to worry about,” says the vet. “She's simply going through the change.”

The devout cowboy lost his favorite Bible while he was mending fences out on the range. Three weeks later, a chicken walked up to him carrying the Bible in its mouth. The cowboy couldn't believe his eyes. He took the precious book out of the chicken's mouth, raised his eyes heavenward, and exclaimed, “It's a miracle!”

“Not really,” said the chicken. “Your name is written inside the cover.”
