QUICKIES

Terrible Tommy started his antics at a very young age. In the


hospital nursery there were two babies in cribs next to each
other. One looked over to the Tommy and said, “Hi, I’m a
little girl baby.”

Tommy said, “Hi, I’m a little boy baby.”

The little girl baby said, “Can you prove it?”

Tommy looked around to make sure that all the nurses had
left. He slowly lifted his little night gown up and said, “See,
blue booties.”

y ?
Terrible Tommy is standing quietly for a long while. He is
watching a priest repairing the church fence.

The priest asks him, “Do you want to speak with me, my
son?”

“No, I’m just waiting.” replies Tommy.

“Waiting for what?” asks the priest.

Tommy answers, “I want to know what a priest says when


he hits his finger with a hammer.”

y ?
Tommy says to his girlfriend Sally, “Wanna play army? I’ll
lay down and you can blow the heck out of me.”

Terrible Tommy & Yucky Chucky

Terrible Tommy and his dad entered their vacation cabin


and kept the lights off until they were inside to keep from
attracting pesky insects. Still, a few fireflies followed them
in.

Tommy noticed them before his dad and said, “It’s no use
dad. Now the mosquitoes are coming after us with
flashlights.”

y ?
Yucky Chucky was playing with his little brother Terrible
Tommy when Tommy asked whether he could fly like
Superman.

“Sure you can,” Chucky said, “Just flap your arms really,
really hard.”

So Tommy climbed up on the windowsill, started flapping


like mad, jumped, then smashed into the ground two stories
below.

Their mother came screaming into the room and said, “What
the heck just happened?”

Chucky said, “I was just teaching Tommy not to believe


everything someone tells him.”

y ?
Terrible Tommy called his grandfather to wish him Happy
Birthday. He asked his granddad how old he was, and he
told him, “Sixty-two.”

Tommy was quiet for a moment, and then he asked, “Did


you start at one?”

y ?

Terrible Tommy & Yucky Chucky

Terrible Tommy goes into his parents’ bedroom, catches


them in the act, and promptly runs away.

His dad eventually goes to look for him and hears some
familiar noises. Opening the door he sees his son on top of
his grandmother, doing the business.

“What the heck are you doing?” he shouts.

Tommy looks over his shoulder and says, “Oh yeh, a bit
different when it’s your mom, isn’t it?

y ?
Terrible Tommy was taken to the dentist. It was discovered
that he had a cavity that would have to be filled.

“Now, young man,” asked the dentist, “What kind of filling


would you like for that tooth?”

“Chocolate, please,” replied Tommy.

y ?
Terrible Tommy and his friend Jimmy Koch were engaging
in a verbal battle like little boys all over the world. Jimmy
starts, “My Father is better than your Father.”
Tommy, “No, he’s not.”
Jimmy, “My brother is better than you brother.”
Tommy, “He is not. He is not.”
Jimmy, “My Mother is better than your Mother.”
A long pause ensued and finally Tommy says, “I guess you
got me there. I’ve heard my dad say the same thing.”

y ?
Tommy comes home from school and his mom says, “What
did you learn in school?” He replies, “Obviously not
enough, because I have to go back again tomorrow.”

The game warden spied Terrible Tommy carrying a wild
turkey. He stopped him and asked, “Where did you get that
turkey?”

Tommy replied, “What turkey?”

The game warden said, “The turkey under your arm.”

Tommy looked down and said, “Well, lookee here, a turkey


done snuck up right under my arm.”

The game warden said, “Now look, son, you know turkey
season is over, so whatever you do to that turkey, I am going
to do to you. So, exactly what are you going to do with that
bird?”

Terrible Tommy said, “I’m going to kiss his butt and let him
go.”

y ?
His father asked Yucky Chucky why he was crying.

“I cleaned the bird cage and the canary disappeared,” sobbed


Chucky.

“How did you clean it,” asked his dad.

Chucky replied, “With the vacuum cleaner.”

y ?
Tommy asks his father, “What is the difference between
fornication and adultery?”

His dad answers, “I’ve tried both and I can’t tell any
difference.”

y ?
It was during supper that Terrible Tommy said, “Are
caterpillars good to eat?”

“I have told you before Tommy, don’t talk about such things
at the dinner table,” said his father.

The question though, drew the mother’s curiosity, “Why did


you ask the question, son?”

Tommy said, “Because I saw one on dad’s lettuce and now


it’s gone.”

y ?
Terrible Tommy swaggered into the lounge and demanded
of the barmaid, “Give me a double scotch on the rocks.”

“What do you want to do, get me in trouble?” the barmaid


asked.

“Maybe later,” Tommy said, “Right now, I just want the


scotch.”

y ?
Tommy was looking through the family photo album.
“Mom, who is the guy with all the muscles and curly hair on
the beach with you?”

“That’s your father.”


“Then who is the old, bald-headed, fat guy living with us
now?”

y ?

Terrible Tommy & Yucky Chucky

“Dad,” said Yucky Chucky, “We had a spelling contest in


school today, and I missed on the very first word.”

“That’s too bad Chucky,” consoled his father, “What was


the word?”

“Posse.”

“No wonder you couldn’t spell it dummy. You can’t even


pronounce it correctly.”

y ?
A farmer in the country has a watermelon patch and upon
inspection he discovers that Terrible Tommy had been
helping himself to a feast.

The farmer thinks of ways to discourage this profit eating


situation. He decides to put up a sign that reads,
“WARNING: ONE OF THESE WATERMELONS
CONTAINS CYANIDE.”

The farmer returns a week later to discover that none of the


watermelons have been eaten, but finds another handwritten
sign that reads, “NOW THERE ARE TWO.”

y ?
A woman answered her front door and found Terrible
Tommy standing there holding a long list.

“Excuse me,” he explained, “I am on a scavenger hunt. I still


need three grains of wheat, a pork-chop bone, and a piece of
used carbon paper, to earn a dollar.”

“Wow,” the woman replied. “Who sent you on such a


challenging hunt?”

Tommy answered, “My babysitter’s boyfriend.”

A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons. The boys
began to argue over which one would get the first pancake.
Their wise mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson.
“If Jesus were sitting here, He would say, ‘Let my brother
have the first pancake, I can wait’.”
Yucky Chucky turned to his younger brother and said,
“Tommy, you be Jesus.”

y ?
Terrible Tommy was mother’s helper. He helped set the
table when company was due for dinner. Presently
everything was on, the guest came in, and everyone sat
down. Then his mother noticed something was missing.

“Tommy,” she said, “You didn’t put a knife and fork in


front of Mr. Smith’s place.”

“I thought he wouldn’t need them, because daddy says he


always eats like a horse.”

y ?
Yucky Chucky was the quietest boy in school. He never
answered any questions but his homework was always quite
excellent. If any one said anything to him he would simply
nod, or shake his head. The staff thought he was shy and
decided to do something to give him confidence. “Chucky,”
said his teacher. “I just bet Miss Smith five dollars that I can
get you to say three words.” Chucky looked at her sadly and
said, “You lose.”

Terrible Tommy is sitting by himself in the local park.


Along comes Patty chewing on a piece of gum. “Hey
Tommy, wanna play doctor?”
Tommy lets out a puff of smoke, “Nah, that’s too old
fashioned.” Tommy takes another drag and says, “Spit out
your gum, I wanna play President.”

y ?
A young new psychotherapist was having such success in
his business that he could now afford to have a proper sign
advertising his wares, so he asked Terrible Tommy to paint
the sign board for him and put it above his shop entrance.

His business began to slow. He especially noticed the ladies


shying away from his office after reading the sign board, so
he decided to check out the looks of his new sign.

Tommy could only find a small wooden board so he had to


split the word in three places.

The sign read,

Psycho-
the-
rapist.

y ?
Terrible Tommy wanted to have his eyes tested, so he went
to an optician.

The optician said, “Sit down please. Can you see the
smallest words on the board?

Tommy replied, “Yeah, the smallest words on the board are,


‘Made in USA’.”

Tommy questioned his grandmother with an appearance of
great seriousness, “Ain’t Rotterdam the name of a city,
Gramma?”

“Don’t say ‘ain’t’, Tommy,” the old lady corrected. “Yes,


Rotterdam is the name of a city. Why?”

“It ain’t swearin’ to say it, is it Gramma?”

“Don’t say ‘ain’t’, Tommy. No, it isn’t swearing to say


Rotterdam. Why?”

He answers, “Cause if Marcia keeps on eating so much


candy, she’ll Rotterdam head off.”

y ?
Terrible Tommy’s dad had been a soldier in Iraq for more
than three years. During that time he had engaged in many
battles and won many decorations. He was finally
discharged from service and returned home to a wife and
son whom he hadn’t seen in all that time.

As he was walking up the path to his house, his young son,


Tommy spotted him and yelled, “Mommy, mommy, here
comes dad, and he has a purple heart on.”

His mother replied, “I don’t give a darn what color it is. Let
him in, and you go play at Richie’s for a couple hours.

y ?
Terrible Tommy says, “A good mom lets you lick the
beaters. A great mom turns off the mixer first.”

GOURMET GROCERY

A customer at Shubnell’s Gourmet Grocery marveled at the


proprietor’s quick wit and intelligence.

“Tell me Chucky, what makes you so smart?”

“I wouldn’t share my secret with just anyone,” Chucky


replies, lowering his voice so the other shoppers won’t hear,
“Since you’re a good and faithful customer, I’ll let you in on
my secret, fish heads. You eat enough of them, you will be
positively brilliant.”

“Do you sell them here?” the customer asks.

“Only four bucks apiece,” says Yucky Chucky.

The customer buys three. A week later, he’s back in the


store complaining that the fish heads were disgusting and he
isn’t any smarter.

“You didn’t eat enough,” says Chucky.

The customer goes home with twenty more fish heads. Two
weeks later, he is back and this time he is really angry.

“Hey Chucky,” he says, “You are selling me fish heads for


four dollars apiece when I just found out I can buy the whole
fish for two dollars. You’re ripping me off.”

Chucky says, “See, you are smarter already.”

FIFTY DOLLARS

One day Terrible Tommy and his two friends were out on
the porch. Tommy always watched the neighbor’s house as
men would knock on the door hand the lady that answered
the door fifty dollars, they would go inside, and the man
would walk out smiling.

Tommy decided to find out what the men were smiling


about, so the boys gathered up as much money as they
could. They chipped in and had five dollars, so the boys go
walking toward the house.

Tommy walks up to the door with his five dollars, knocks


on the door.

A huge madam opens the door, looks down and asks, “What
do you want little boy”?

Tommy replies, “I want the same thing everyone else gets.”

She smiles and takes his five dollars, then lifts her dress up,
grabs Tommy’s face and rubs it in the wet spot.

Tommy breaks free and runs down the street. His two
friends try to catch him as he is darting down the road.

Finally they catch up to him and are walking together. After


a few minutes of silence, Tommy looks at his friends and
says, “You know, I could not have stood there for fifty
dollars of that.”

ICE CREAM

Terrible Tommy wants to eat the double chocolate chip ice


cream but his mom refuses to let him. He asks her, “Why?”

His mom: Because.

Tommy: Why?

Mom: Because I said so.

Tommy: Why?

Mom: Because I’m your mom.

Tommy: Why?

Mom: Because it’s too close to supper.

Tommy: Why?

Mom: Because you’ll spoil your appetite.

Tommy: Why?

Mom: Because if you don’t eat your supper, you will never
grow up and stop asking me questions.

Tommy: Why?

Mom: (angry) If you ask me why one more time, I’m going
to explode!

Silence for a minute.

Tommy: When?

LIGHTNING FLASHES

Terrible Tommy walked daily to and from school. Though


the weather one morning was unsettled and clouds were
forming, he took his normal stroll to his primary school
many blocks away.

As the day passed, the weather became more inclement, the


wind whistled stronger and there was some loud thunder and
fierce lightning.

Tommy’s mother was concerned that her son would be


frightened as he walked home from school. She was afraid
of an electrical storm and thought that it might harm her
child.

All of a sudden, there was a massive clap of thunder and


lightning flashed in the sky like a fireball from heaven.

Tommy’s mother was terrified. She jumped into her car and
drove along the route to her child’s school. Soon she saw
Tommy walking along, but at each flash of lightning, he
would stop, look up, and smile. One followed another, each
with him stopping, looking at the streak of light, and
smiling.

Finally, his mother called him over to the car and asked,
“Tommy darling, what are you doing?”

Tommy answered brightly, “God keeps taking pictures of


me.”

FAMILIES

Terrible Tommy was thinking about the bible stories and


asked his mother, “Where did humans come from?”

His mother answered, “Well dear, God made Adam and Eve
and they had children and all mankind descended from
them.”

Then he asked her father the same question. His father


answered, “Over millions of years, humans developed from
apes.”

The confused boy returned to his mother and told her what
his dad said and asked, “Mom, why did you say we were
created by God while dad said we descended from
monkeys?”

Mother answered, “That is simple Tommy, I was talking


about my family’s origins, and your father was talking about
his.”

SUMMER VACATION

It was the last day of the school year, and Miss Suzie was
talking to her fourth grade class. She asked “What will you
be doing this summer?”

“I and my family will go to the beach a lot,” Paula Van De


Putte answered.

“That sounds like fun,” said Miss Suzie. “How about you,
Sharon? What will you do this summer?”

“My family just bought new bikes and we will ride


together.” Sharon Koehnel replied enthusiastically.

“That sounds lovely,” said the teacher. She continued with


all her students until she got to Terrible Tommy in the back
of the room. “What will you do this summer, Tommy?”

“Nothing,” he responded timidly.

“Nothing? Aren’t you going to do anything with your


family?” she asked, trying to get him to use his imagination.

“Nothing.” He replied - “Will you go to the beach?”

“No.” - “Will you ride bikes?”

“No, never.” Tommy burst out. “We can never ride bikes
together.”

“Why not?” said the shocked Miss Suzie.

“I don’t know,” explained Tommy, “But dad always says,


when mom and sis start ‘cycling together’, it’s time to get
the heck out of town.”

FISH

Terrible Tommy’s father hosted a dinner party for people


from work, including his boss.

All during the sit-down dinner, Tommy stared at his father’s


boss sitting across from him. He could hardly eat his food,
because he was staring so much.

The man checked his tie, felt his face for food, patted his
hair in place, but nothing stopped Tommy from staring at
him. He tried his best to just ignore him, but finally it was
too much.

He asked Tommy, “Why are you staring at me?”

Everyone at the table had noticed Tommy’s behavior and


the table went quiet for the response.

Tommy said, “My dad said you drink like a fish and I don’t
want to miss it when you do.”

LAWNMOWER

A preacher was making his rounds on a bicycle, when he


came upon Terrible Tommy trying to sell a lawn mower.

“How much do you want for the mower?” asked the


preacher.

“I just want to make enough money to go out and buy a


bicycle,” said Tommy.

After a moment of consideration, the preacher asked, “Will


you take my bike in trade for it?”

Tommy asked if he could try it out first and, after riding the
bike around a little while, said, “Preacher, you have a deal.”

The preacher took the mower and began to crank it. He


pulled on the rope a few times with no response from the
mower.

He called Tommy over and said, “I can’t get this mower to


start.”

Tommy said, “I have watched my dad and he always cusses


to get it started. Why not try to cuss at it and see if it will
start.”

The preacher said, “I can’t cuss. It has been so long since I


became a preacher that I don’t even remember how to cuss.”

Tommy looked at him, smiled, and said, “You just keep


pulling on that rope. It will come back to you.”

REFRIGERATOR ART

Terrible Tommy was practicing spelling with magnetic


letters on the refrigerator: cat, dog, dad, and mom had been
proudly displayed for all to see.

One morning while getting ready for the day, he bounded


into the room with his arms outstretched. In his hands were
three magnetic letters: G-O-D.

“Look what I spelled, mom,” with a proud smile on his face.

“That’s wonderful.” his mom praised him. “Now go put


them on the fridge so your father can see when he gets home
tonight.”

Tommy’s mom happily thought that her son’s Catholic


education was certainly having an impact. Just then, a little
voice called from the kitchen, “Mom?”

How do you spell, “Zilla?”

GRANDMA AND THE TV

Terrible Tommy went to visit his grandmother one day. He


was playing with his toys in her bedroom while she was
dusting.

He looked up and said, “Grandma, why don’t you have a


boyfriend now that grandpa has gone to heaven?”

Grandma replied, “Honey, my TV is my boyfriend. I can sit


in my bedroom and watch it all day long. The religious
programs make me feel good and the comedies make me
laugh. I am happy with my TV as my boyfriend.”

Grandma turned on the TV, and the reception was terrible.


She started adjusting the knobs, trying to get the picture in
focus. She became frustrated and started to hit the backside
of the TV hoping to fix the problem.

Tommy heard the doorbell ring, so he hurried to open the


door, and there stood grandma’s minister.

The minister said, “Hello young man, is your grandma


home?”

Tommy replied, “Yeh, she’s in the bedroom banging her


boyfriend.”

The minister fainted.

MERMAID

Terrible Tommy lived on a farm with his farmer father and


mother and two brothers. They had one cow, on which the
family depended for its livelihood.

One morning, his dad awakens and goes outside to milk the
cow. Upon going into the barn, he sees that the cow is dead.
The farmer panics and hoping that his life insurance will
support his family; he gets his gun and shoots himself.

Tommy’s mother hears the shot and wakes up. She goes
outside and finds both their precious cow and her beloved
husband dead. In a fit of grief, she decides she can’t go on
and hangs herself.

Tommy’s older brother, Yucky Chucky, finally wakes up


and goes outside to investigate the noises that he had heard.
He finds both his parents and the cow, dead. He is
overwhelmed by this loss. He can’t go on, so he runs down
to the river to drown himself.

In the river is a beautiful mermaid. She says to him, “I am


the Magical Mermaid of the river. I have seen all that has
happened, and I will bring your family back to life if you
can have sex with me at least 5 times.”

He is unable to resist such an offer and accepts. However,


Yucky Chucky is only able to perform with the mermaid 4
times, so the mermaid lets him drown in the river.

Soon, Johnny wakes up and goes outside, sees his parents


and the cow dead, and runs down to the river to drown
himself.

The mermaid is still there, and says, “I am the Magical


Mermaid of the river.”

26
Terrible Tommy & Yucky Chucky

She continues, “I have seen all that has happened, and I will
bring your family back to life if you can have sex with me at
least 10 times.”
Johnny accepts her offer, but after only 8 times, he is
completely worn out, so the mermaid lets him drown in the
river.

Finally, Terrible Tommy wakes up and discovers his dead


parents and the cow. He looks around and can’t find his
brothers either, so he runs down to the river to drown
himself.

The mermaid is still there at the river and says, “I am the


Magical Mermaid of the river. I have seen all that has
happened, and I will bring your family back to life if you
can have sex with me 15 times.”

Tommy looks at her and says, “Only 15 times? Why not 20,
or 25 times? Heck, why not have sex 30 times?”

Hearing this, the mermaid is shocked and skeptical, but


replies, “OK. If you can have sex with me 30 times, I will
bring your entire family and the cow back to life and all will
be in perfect health.”

They are just about to go at it, when Tommy stops and says,
“Wait a minute. How do I know 30 times won’t kill you like
it killed the cow?”

TOMMY AND DADDY

Terrible Tommy sees his daddy’s car pass the playground


and continue right into the woods.

He follows the car and sees daddy and Aunt Mary in a


passionate embrace. Tommy finds this so exciting and can
scarcely contain himself as he runs home and starts to tell
his mother.

Mommy, “I was at the playground and I saw daddy’s car go


into the woods, and he had Aunt Mary with him in the car.

I went back to look and he was giving Aunt Mary a big kiss,
then he helped her take off her shirt, then Aunt Mary helped
daddy take his pants off, then Aunt Mary laid down on the
seat, then daddy began. . .”

At this point, his mother stopped him and said, “Tommy,


this is such an interesting story, suppose you save the rest of
it for supper time. I want to see the look on daddy’s face
when you tell the whole story tonight.”

At the dinner table, his mother asks Tommy to tell his story.

Tommy starts his story, describing the car driving past the
playground and into the woods, the undressing, laying down
on the seat.

Tommy said, “Then daddy and Aunt Mary started doing that
same thing mommy and Uncle George do when daddy goes
to work.”

RABBITS

The teacher was teaching his math class one day and he said,
“If I give you two rabbits and two rabbits and another two
rabbits, how many rabbits do you have?”

Terrible Tommy raised his hand and said, “Seven.”

The teacher asked Tommy to listen carefully again, “If I give


you two rabbits and two rabbits, and another two rabbits,
how many rabbits do you have?”

Tommy replied, “Seven.”

The teacher said, “Let’s try another way. If I give you two
apples and two apples and another two apples, how many
apples do you have?”

Tommy replied, “Six.”

The teacher is finally making progress and he says, “That is


good. Now if I give you two rabbits and two rabbits and
another two rabbits, how many rabbits will you have?

Tommy replied, “Seven.”

Now the teacher is frustrated. He asked Tommy, “How on


earth do you work out that three lots of two rabbits are
seven?”

Tommy said, “I already have one rabbit at home.”

MEMORIAL PLAQUE

One Sunday morning, the pastor noticed Terrible Tommy


was staring up at the large plaque that hung in the vestibule
of the church. It was covered with names and small
American flags were mounted on the sides of it.

He had been staring at the plaque for some time, so the


pastor walked up, stood beside him, and said quietly, “Good
morning, Tommy.”

“Good morning,” replied Tommy, still focused on the


plaque.

“What is this?” Tommy asked.

“Well son, it’s a memorial to all the young men and women
who died in the service.”

They stood together for a while, just staring at the large


plaque.

Tommy’s voice began to tremble and was barely audible


when he asked, “Which service, the nine or the noon?”

not have a pencil. We do not have any pencils, and they do
not have any pencils. Is that clear?”

“No teacher,” said Tommy. “What the hell happened to all
