The word of the day ‘Fervour’ x5

Jean’s Jokes of the day (edited):
1. A blind man decided to visit Texas.  He went to a bar and got a mug placed between his hands. He exclaimed, “Wow these mugs are big!”. The bartender replied, “Everything is big in Texas.”  After a couple of beers, the blind man asked the bartender where the bathroom was located. The blind man headed for the bathroom, but accidentally tripped over and skipped the second door. Instead, he entered the third door, which lead to the swimming pool and fell into the pool by accident. Scared to death, the blind man started shouting, “Don’t flush, don’t flush!”
2. A helium atom walks into a bar. The bartender tells him, “We don’t serve noble gases here.” The helium atom doesn’t react.
