NOTE : There is a new cell phone law in effect and you can now be ticketed for driving and talking or texting to the effect of a $100 fine, I believe. So be careful out there.

And a little humor…

The Blonde Guy

An Irishman, a Mexican and a Blonde Guy were doing construction work on scaffolding on the 20th floor of a building. They were eating lunch and the Irishman said, "Corned beef and cabbage! If I get corned beef and cabbage one more time for lunch, I'm going to jump off this building." The Mexican opened his lunch box and exclaimed, "Burritos again! If I get burritos one more time I'm going to jump off, too." The blond opened his lunch and said, Bologna again! If I get a bologna sandwich one more time, I'm jumping too." The next day, the Irishman opened his lunch box, saw corned beef and cabbage, and jumped to his death. The Mexican opened his lunch, saw a burrito, and jumped, too. The blonde guy opened his lunch, saw the bologna and jumped to his death as well

At the funeral, the Irishman's wife was weeping. She said, "If I'd known how really tired he was of corned beef and cabbage, I never would have given it to him again!" The Mexican's wife also wept and said, "I could have given him tacos or enchiladas! I didn't realize he hated burritos so much." (Oh this is GOOD!!) Everyone turned and stared at the blonde's wife. The blonde's wife said, "Don't look at me. He made his own lunch !!!!

The blonde joke is LOL. Thanks for the laugh.

In case anyone thinks the cell phone paragraph is a hoax, it is NOT. Here's what the Home News Tribune had to say:

"...the use of a hand-held cell phone or text-messaging while driving a primary offense, punishable with a $100 fine.

"The new law went into effect March 1. Police departments in Middlesex, Somerset, Union and Hunterdon counties have stepped up enforcement." [Notice that's the 7th Congressional District.]


Here's a handy page that lists cell phone laws by country and state. Scroll 80% down the page to see NJ listed.
