A medieval astrologer prophesied to a king that his beloved wife would soon die.
Sure enough, the Queen died a short time later.
The king was outraged at the astrologer, he think that his prophecy had brought about the woman’s death.
He summoned the astrologer and gave him this command: “Prophet, tell me when you will die!”
The astrologer realized that the king was planning to take his life, immediately, no matter what answer he gave.
So he said, finally, “I do not know when I will die. I only know that whenever I die, you will die three days later.”

The redhead whispers to the blond…”He looks like he could use some head and shoulders”
The blond looks at her friend and replies with a look of bewilderment…’Yes, but how do you give shoulders?’
