Subject: BS: 1st Joke Thread of 2011

Pay Attention to Biology Class

Just after dinner one night, my son came up to tell me there was "something wrong" with one of the two lizards he holds prisoner in his room.

"He's just lying there looking sick," he told me. "I'm serious, Dad. Can you help?"

I put my best lizard-healer expression on my face and followed him into his bedroom.

One of the little lizards was indeed lying on his back, looking stressed. I immediately knew what to do.

"Honey," I called, "come look at the lizard!"

"Oh, my gosh!" my wife exclaimed. "She's having babies."

"What?" my son demanded. "But their names are Bert and Ernie, Mom!"

I was equally outraged. "Hey, how can that be? I thought we said we didn't want them to reproduce," I said accusingly to my wife.

"Well, what do you want me to do, post a sign in their cage?" she inquired (I think she actually said this sarcastically!)

"No, but you were supposed to get two boys!" I reminded her (in my most loving, calm, sweet voice, while gritting my teeth).

"Yeah, Bert and Ernie!" my son agreed.

"Well, it's just a little hard to tell on some guys, you know," she informed me (again with the sarcasm!)

By now the rest of the family had gathered to see what was going on. I shrugged, deciding to make the best of it.

Kids, this is going to be a wondrous experience," I announced. "We're about to witness the miracle of birth."

"Oh, gross!" they shrieked.

"Well, isn't that just great? What are we going to do with a litter of tiny little lizard babies?" my wife wanted to know.

We peered at the patient. After much struggling, what looked like a tiny foot would appear briefly, vanishing a scant second later.

"We don't appear to be making much progress," I noted.

"It's breech," my wife whispered, horrified.

"Do something, Dad!" my son urged.

"OK, OK." Squeamishly, I reached in and grabbed the foot when it next appeared, giving it a gentle tug. It disappeared. I tried several more times with the same results.

"Should I call 911?" my eldest daughter wanted to know. "Maybe they could talk us through the trauma." (You see a pattern here with the females in my house?)

"Let's get Ernie to the vet," I said grimly. We drove to the vet with my son holding the cage in his lap.

"Breathe, Ernie, breathe," he urged.

"I don't think lizards do Lamaze," his mother noted to him. (More sarcasm? Women can be so cruel to their own young. I mean what she does to me is one thing, but this boy is of her womb, for God's sake.)

The vet took Ernie back to the examining room and peered at the little animal through a magnifying glass.

"What do you think, Doc, a C-section?" I suggested scientifically.

"Oh, very interesting," he murmured.

"Mr. And Mrs. Cameron, may I speak to you privately for a moment?"

I gulped, nodding for my son to step outside.

"Is Ernie going to be okay?" my wife asked.

"Oh, perfectly," the vet assured us.

"This lizard is not in labor. In fact, that isn't ever going to happen: Ernie is a boy. You see, Ernie is a young male. And occasionally, as they come into maturity, like most male species, they ...um... masturbate. Just the way he did, lying on his back." He blushed, glancing at my wife.

We were silent, absorbing this. "So, Ernie's just... just...."

"Excited," my wife offered.

"Exactly!" the vet replied, relieved that we understood.

More silence. Then my vicious, cruel wife started to giggle. And giggle. And then even laugh loudly.

"What's so funny?" I demanded, knowing, but not believing that the woman I married would commit the upcoming affront to my flawless manliness.

Tears were now running down her face. "It's just that I'm picturing you pulling on its its teeny little...." She gasped for more air to bellow in laughter once more.

"That's enough," I warned. We thanked the vet and hurriedly bundled the lizard and our son back into the car. He was glad everything was going to be okay.

"I know Ernie's really thankful for what you did, Dad," he told me.

"Oh, you have no idea," my wife agreed, collapsing with laughter.

Moral of the story: Pay attention in biology class. Lizards lay eggs.

Today is, according to the Mexicans, the Japanese and the Koreans, one of four days that a dog can clearly state the date. According to their cultures dogs do not go bow-wow, they say wan-wan. So today the date is wan, wan, wan-wan.

The next three are: wan, wan-wan, wan-wan; wan-wan, wan, wan-wan; and wan-wan, wan-wan, wan-wan.

Read this aloud, to someone...if you are alone, still read it aloud!!!!!




They actually have a Chili Cook Off about the time Halloween comes around.
It takes up a major portion of a parking lot at the San Antonio City Park.
Judge #3 was an inexperienced Chili Taster named Frank, who was visiting
from Springfield, IL

Frank: "Recently, I was honored to be selected as a judge at a chili
cook-off. The original person called in sick at the last moment and I
happened to be standing there at the judge's table asking for directions to the Coors Light truck, when the call came in. I was assured by the other two judges (Native Texans) that the chili wouldn't be all that spicy and,
besides, they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I
accepted."

Here are the scorecard notes from the event:

*****************************************************
CHILI # 1 - MIKE'S MANIAC MONSTER CHILI...
Judge # 1 -- A little too heavy on the tomato. Amusing kick.
Judge # 2 - Nice, smooth tomato flavor. Very mild.
Judge # 3 (Frank) -- Holy crap, what the hell is this stuff? You could remove dried paint from your driveway. Took me two beers to put the flames out. I hope that's the worst one. These Texans are crazy.
*****************************************************
CHILI # 2 - AUSTIN'S AFTERBURNER CHILI..
Judge # 1 -- Smoky, with a hint of pork. Slight jalapeno tang.
Judge #2 -- Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken seriously.
Judge # 3 -- Keep this out of the reach of children. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people who wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. They had to rush in more beer when they saw the look on my face.
*****************************************************
CHILI # 3 - FRED'S BURN DOWN THE BARN CHILI...
Judge # 1 -- Excellent firehouse chili. Great kick.
Judge # 2 -- A bit salty, good use of peppers.
Judge # 3 -- Call the EPA. I've located a uranium spill. My nose feels like I have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now. Get me more beer before I ignite. Ba rmaid pounded me on the back, now my backbone is in the front part of my chest. I'm getting drunk from all of the beer.
*****************************************************
CHILI # 4 - BUBBA'S BLACK MAGIC...
Judge # 1 -- Black bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing.
Judge # 2 -- Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or other mild foods not much of a chili.
Judge # 3 -- I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to taste it. Is it possible to burn out taste bud s? Sally, the beermaid, was standing behind me with fresh refills. That 300-LB woman is starting to look HOT, just like this nuclear waste I'm eating! Is chili an aphrodisiac?
*****************************************************
CHILI # 5 LISA'S LEGAL LIP REMOVER...
Judge # 1 -- Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding considerable kick. Very impressive.
Judge # 2 -- Chili using sh redded beef, could use more tomato. Must admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.
Judge # 3 -- My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead and I can no longer focus my eyes. I farted and four people behind me needed paramedics. The contestant seemed offended when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage. Sally saved my tongue from bleeding by pouring beer directly on it from the pitcher. I wonder if I'm burning my lips off.
It really ticks me off that the other judges asked me to stop screaming.
*****************************************************
CHILI # 6 - VERA'S VERY VEGETARIAN VARIETY...
Judge # 1 -- Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of
spices and peppers.
Judge # 2 -- The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions, and garlic.
Superb.
Judge # 3 -- My intestines are now a straight pipe filled with gaseous, sulfuric flames. I pooped on myself when I farted and I'm worried it will eat through the chair. No one seems incline d to stand behind me except that Sally. Can't feel my lips anymore. I need to wipe my rearend with a snow cone.
*****************************************************
CHILI # 7 - SUSAN'S SCREAMING SENSATION CHILI...< /FONT>
Judge # 1 -- A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers.
Judge # 2 -- Ho hum, tastes as if the chef literally threw in a can of chili peppers at the last moment. **I should take note that I am worried about Judge # 3. He appears to be in a bit of distress as he is cursing uncontrollably.
Judge # 3 -- You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I
wouldn't feel a thing. I've lost sight in one eye, and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My shirt is covered with chili, which slid unnoticed out of my mouth. My pants are full of lava to match my shirt. At least during the autopsy, they'll know what killed me. I've decided to stop breathing, it's too painful. I'm not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air, I'll just suck it in through the 4-inch hole in my stomach.
*****************************************************
CHILI # 8 - BIG TOM'S TOENAIL CURLING CHILI...
Judge # 1 -- The perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili. Not too bold but spicy enough to declare its existence.
Judge # 2 -- This final entry is a good, balanced chili. Neither mild nor hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge #3 farted, passed out, fell over and pulled the chili pot down on top of himself. Not sure if he's going to make it. Poor feller, wonder how he'd have reacted to really hot chili?
Judge # 3 - No Report

The coach had put together the perfect team for the Chicago Bears. The only thing that was missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted all the colleges and even the Canadian and European Leagues, but he couldn't find a ringer who could ensure a Super Bowl win.

Then one night while watching CNN he saw a war-zone scene in Afghanistan . In one corner of the background, he spotted a young Afghan Muslim soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand-grenade straight into a 15th story window 100 yards away.

KABOOM!

He threw another hand-grenade 75 yards away, right into a chimney.

KA-BLOOEY!

T hen he threw another at a passing car going 90 mph.

BULLS-EYE!

"I've got to get this guy!" Coach said to himself. "He has the perfect arm!"

So, he brings him to the States and teaches him the great game of football. And the Bears go on to win the Super Bowl.

The young Afghan is hailed as the great hero of football, and when the coach asks him what he wants, all the young man wants is to call his mother.

"Mom," he says into the phone, "I just won the Super Bowl!"

"I don't want to talk to you, the old Muslim woman says."You are not my son!"

"I don't think you understand, Mother," the young man pleads. "I've won the greatest sporting event in the world. I'm here among thousands of my adoring fans."

"No! Let me tell you!" his mother retorts. "At this very moment, there are gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week, and I have to keep your sister in the house so she doesn't get raped!" The old lady pauses, and then tearfully says,


"I will never forgive you for making us move to Chicago !!"

Sometime this year, American taxpayers will again receive another 'Economic   Stimulus' payment.

   This is indeed a very exciting program, and I'll explain it by   using a Q & A format:


   Q. What is an 'Economic Stimulus' payment ?

   A. It is money that the federal government will send to taxpayers.


   Q.. Where will the government get this money ?

   A. From taxpayers.


   Q. So the government is giving me back my own money ?

   A. Only a smidgen of it.


   Q. What is the purpose of this payment ?

   A. The plan is for you to use the money to purchase a high-definition TV set, thus stimulating the economy.


   Q. But isn't that stimulating the economy of China ?

   A. Shut up.


   Below is some helpful advice on how to best help the U.S. economy by spending your stimulus check wisely:      

       * If you spend the stimulus money at Wal-Mart, the money will go to China or Sri Lanka ..


       * If you spend it on gasoline, your money will go to the Arabs.


       * If you purchase a computer, it will go to India , Taiwan or China .
      

       * If you purchase fruit and vegetables, it will go to Mexico,   Honduras and Guatemala ...
      

       * If you buy an efficient car, it will go to Japan or Korea .
   

       * If you purchase useless stuff, it will go to Taiwan .
   

       * If you pay your credit cards off, or buy stock, it will go to management bonuses and they will hide it offshore.


   Instead, keep the money in America by:

   1) Spending it at yard sales, or   

   2) Going to ball games, or   

   3) Spending it on prostitutes, or   

   4) Beer or   

   5) Tattoos.


   (These are the only American businesses still operating in the U.S. )



   Conclusion:

   Go to a ball game with a tattooed prostitute that you met at a yard sale and drink beer all day !


   No need to thank me, I'm just glad I could be of help.

The trooper orders the old man down & directs him behind the buggy.

"But, when I walked up front,I couldn't help but notice that you've got a rope tied around that horses testicles".
"I'm gonna let you off with a warning this time,but don't let me catch you again with these violations".

"Cooking Blonde"

Mr. & Mrs. Smith have been back from their honeymoon
for two weeks when Mr. Smith comes home from work
and says that he has invited four of his friends from the
office home for dinner on Friday night. The blonde wife is a bit
apprehensive and asks if she must cook a meal for the
four. The husband explains that there will be eight
coming because each will bring his wife.

Since this is their first party, the husband consoles her
by saying that all she has to do is get some Chinese
food in and perhaps she can bake a cake.

This sounds like a good idea, and they sit down and
decide what Chinese food to get.

Friday morning wife calls the office in tears. She explains
that the only cake recipe she has will only feed six.

Hubby says, "Why don't you just double the recipe?"
She decides that is a good idea.

At four, hubby gets another phone call -- this time
quite frantic.

"I just can't do it," wifey weeps. "It's impossible."

"Now, now, what's the matter?"

"Well, their recipe calls for two eggs..."

"So, you use FOUR eggs. Don't you have them?"

"Yes -- then it needs four cups of flour."

"Well," hubby says rather testily, "you will have to
use eight cups of flour --what is the problem?"

"It isn't the ingredients," wife sobs. "It says that the
cake must be baked at 350 degrees, and I have
checked the oven, and I can't turn the heat up to
700 degrees!"

A postal clerk was assigned to process all the mail that came in with illegible or incorrect addresses. One day, a letter for God arrived. It had no real address, just "To God, General Delivery," written with a shaky hand. The clerk opened it to see what it was about:
Dear God,

I am an 83-year-old widow living on a very small pension.

Yesterday, someone stole my purse. It had $100 in it, which was all the money I had until my next pension check. Next Sunday is Christmas, and I've invited two of my friends over for dinner.

I have no family to turn to. Without that money, I have nothing to buy food with. You are my only hope.

Can you please help me?

Sincerely,

Edna

The clerk was touched. He showed the letter to all the other workers. Each one dug into his or her pocket and came up with a few dollars. By the time he had finished making the rounds, he'd collected $96, which he put into an envelope and sent to Edna. The rest of the day, all the workers felt a warm glow thinking of the old lady and the dinner she would be able to share with her friends.

Christmas came and went. A few days later, another letter addressed to God arrived. All the workers gathered around to read it:
Dear God,

How can I ever thank you enough for what you did for me?

Because of your gift of love, I was able to fix a glorious dinner for my friends. We had a very nice day, and I told my friends of your wonderful and timely blessing.

By the way, there was $4 missing. I think it might have been those bastards at the post office.

He grasped me firmly but gently just above my elbow and guided me
into a room, his room. Then he quietly shut the door and we were alone.

He approached me soundlessly, from behind, and spoke in a low, reassuring voice close to my ear.

"Just relax."

Without warning, he reached down and I felt his strong, calloused hands start at my ankles, gently probing, and moving upward along my calves slowly but steadily. My breath caught in my throat.

I knew I should be afraid, but somehow I didn't care. His touch was so experienced, so sure.

When his hands moved up onto my thighs, I gave a slight shudder, and partly closed my eyes. My pulse was pounding. I felt his knowing fingers caress my abdomen, my ribcage. And then, as he cupped my firm, full breasts in his hands, I inhaled sharply. Probing, searching, knowing what he wanted, he brought his hands to my shoulders, slid them down my tingling spine and into my panties.


Although I knew nothing about this man, I felt oddly trusting and expectant. This is a man, I thought. A man used to taking charge. A man not used to taking `no' for an answer. A man who would tell me what he wanted. A man who would look into my soul and say ...

"Okay, ma'am, all done."

After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils how they spent their holiday away from school. One child wrote the following:
               
We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa. They used to live in a big brick house, but Grandpa got retarded and they moved to Airizona. Now they live in a tin box and have rocks painted green to look like grass. They ride around on their bicycles, and wear name tags, because they don't know who they are anymore. They go to a building called a wreck center, but they must have got it fixed because it is all okay now, they do exercises there, but they don't do them very well. There is a swimming pool too, but they all jump up and down in it with hats on. At their gate, there is a doll house with a little old man sitting in it. He watches all day so nobody can escape. Sometimes they sneak out, and go cruising in their golf carts.

Nobody there cooks, they just eat out. And, they eat the same thing every night - early birds.   Some of the people can't get out past the man in the doll house. The ones who do get out, bring food back to the wrecked center for pot luck. My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his retardment and, says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday too.   When I earn my retardment, I want to be the man in the doll house. Then I will let people out, so they can visit their grandchildren.

The Fix
There recently was an article in the St. Petersburg , Fl. Times. The Business Section asked readers for ideas on: "How Would You Fix the Economy?" I think this guy nailed it!

Dear Mr. President,

Please find below my suggestion for fixing America 's economy. Instead of giving billions of dollars to companies that will squander the money on lavish parties and unearned bonuses, use the following plan.

You can call it the "Patriotic Retirement Plan":

There are about 40 million people over 50 in the work force. Pay them $1 million apiece severance for early retirement with the following stipulations:

1) They MUST retire. Forty million job openings - Unemployment fixed.

2) They MUST buy a new AMERICAN Car. Forty million cars ordered - Auto Industry fixed.

3) They MUST either buy a house or pay off their mortgage - Housing Crisis fixed.

It can't get any easier than that!!

P.S. If more money is needed, have all members in Congress pay their taxes..

Mr. President, while you're at it, make Congress retire on Social Security and Medicare. I'll bet both programs would be fixed pronto!

BANK ROBBERY IN ALABAMA



A hooded robber burst into an Alabama bank and forced the tellers to load a sack full of cash.

On his way out the door a brave customer grabbed the hood and pulled it off revealing the robber's face.
The robber shot the customer without a moment's hesitation.

He then looked around the bank and noticed one of the tellers looking straight at him. The robber instantly shot him also.

Everyone else, by now very scared, looked intently down at the floor in silence.

The robber yelled, "Well, did anyone else see my face?"

There are a few moments of utter silence in which everyone was plainly afraid to speak. Then one old man tentatively raised his hand and said,

"My wife got a pretty good look at you."

An elderly gentleman....   
Had serious hearing problems for a number of years. He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%   
The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, 'Your hearing is perfect.. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again.'   
The gentleman replied, 'Oh, I haven't told my family yet.   
I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will three times!'   

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Two elderly gentlemen   from a retirement center were sitting on a bench under a tree when one turns to the other and says: 'Slim, I'm 83 years old now and I'm just full of aches and pains. I know you're about my age. How do you feel?'   
Slim says, 'I feel just like a newborn baby.'   
'Really!? Like a newborn baby!?'   
'Yep. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants.'   

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

An elderly couple   had dinner at another couple's house, and after eating, the wives left the table and went into the kitchen.   
The two gentlemen were talking, and one said, 'Last night we went out to a new restaurant and it was really great.. I would recommend it very highly.'   
The other man said, 'What is the name of the restaurant?'   
The first man thought and thought and finally said, 'What is the name of that flower you give to someone you love?   
You know.... The one that's red and has thorns.'   
'Do you mean a rose?'   
'Yes, that's the one,' replied the man. He then turned towards the kitchen and yelled, 'Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to last night?'   

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hospital regulations   require a wheel chair for patients being discharged. However, while working as a student nurse, I found one elderly gentleman already dressed and sitting on the bed with a suitcase at his feet, who insisted he   d idn't need my help to leave the hospital.   
After a chat about rules being rules, he reluctantly let me wheel him to the elevator.   
On the way down I asked him if his wife was meeting him.   
'I don't know,' he said. 'She's still upstairs in the bathroom changing out of her hospital gown.'   

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Couple in their nineties   are both having problems remembering things. During a checkup, the doctor tells them that they're physically okay, but they might want to start writing things down to help them remember   ..   
Later that night, while watching TV, the old man gets up from his chair. 'Want anything while I'm in the kitchen?' he asks.   
'Will you get me a bowl of ice cream?'   
'Sure..'   
'Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?' she asks.   
'No, I can remember it.'   
'Well, I'd like some strawberries on top, too. Maybe you should write it down, so   a s not to forget it?'   
He says, 'I can remember that. You want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries.'   
'I'd also like whipped cream. I'm certain you'll forget that, write it down?' she asks.   
Irritated, he says, 'I don't need to write it down, I can remember it! Ice cream with strawberries and whipped cream - I got it, for goodness sake!'   
Then he toddles into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes,   The old man returns from the kitchen and hands his wife a plate of bacon and eggs.. She stares at the plate for a moment.   
'Where's my toast ?'   

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A senior citizen   said to his eighty-year old buddy:   
'So I hear you're getting married?'   
'Yep!'   
'Do I know her?'   
'Nope!'   
'This woman, is she good looking?'   
'Not really.'   
'Is she a good cook?'   
'Naw, she can't cook too well.'   
'Does she have lots of money?'   
'Nope! Poor as a church mouse.'   
'Well, then, is she good in bed?'   
'I don't know.'   
'Why in the world do you want to marry her then?'   
'Because she can still drive!'   

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Three old guys   are out walking.   
First one says, 'Windy, isn't it?'   
Second one says, 'No, it's Thursday!'   
Third one says, 'So am I. Let's go get a beer..'   

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A man   was telling his neighbor, 'I just bought a new hearing aid. It cost me four thousand dollars, but it's state of the art.. It's perfect.'   
'Really,' answered the neighbor . 'What kind is it?'   
'   Twelve thirty..'   

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Morris , an 82 year-old man, went to the doctor to get a physical.   
A few days later, the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm.   
A couple of days later, the doctor spoke to Morris and said, 'You're really doing great, aren't you?'   
Morris replied, 'Just doing what you said, Doc: 'Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.''   
The doctor said, 'I didn't say that.. I said, 'You've got a heart murmur; be careful.'   

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

One more. . .!   
A little old man   shuffled slowly into an ice cream parlor and pulled himself slowly, painfully, up onto a stool.. After catching his breath, he ordered a banana split.   
The waitress asked kindly, 'Crushed nuts?'   
'No,' he replied, 'Arthritis.'

Willie Nelson's 75th Birthday Quote

Whether or not you are a country music fan, these are truly the words of a deep thinker, and a highly intelligent person. So simple, yet so profound! Read the words of wisdom from that famous philosopher Willie Nelson, iconic country and western singer, on his 75th birthday below his esteemed portrait. Only a man with such wisdom and maturity could be so concise and succinct in phrasing his feelings at this turning point in his life.

"I have outlived my pecker."
The Penis Poem

My nookie days are over,
My pilot light is out.
What used to be my sex appeal,
Is now my water spout.
Time was when, on its own accord,
From my trousers it would spring.
But now I've got a full time job,
To find the f***in' thing.
It used to be embarrassing,
The way it would behave.
For every single morning,
It would stand and watch me shave.
Now as old age approaches,
It sure gives me the blues.
To see it hang its little head,
And watch me tie my shoes!!

TWO RESTAURANT STORIES

"Serving Station"

A new and inexperienced waitress on her first
day tells another waitress she is concerned
about being able to carry the heavy trays and
serve from them.

The other waitress explains that tray stands are
placed throughout the restaurant. The nervous
beginner serves all her lunches successfully, and
afterwards asks an elderly couple if everything
has been all right.

"It was fine, dear," replies the man, "but my wife
and I have to leave now. Could she please have
her walker back?"

-----------

"Order Guarantee"

A customer walks into a restaurant and notices
large sign on the wall:

$500 IF WE FAIL TO FILL YOUR ORDER!

When his waitress arrives, he orders elephant dung
on rye.

She calmly writes down his order and walks into the
kitchen where all hell breaks loose!

The restaurant owner comes storming out of the
kitchen. He runs up to the customer's table, slaps
five $100 bills down on it and says,

"You got me that time buddy, but I want you to
know that's the first time in ten years we've been
out of rye bread!"

Two old Jews sat down in a deli. One ordered a glass of tea. The other said, "I'll have a glass of tea, too -- and make sure the glass is clean." So the waiter comes back with two glasses of tea & says "Which one wanted the clean glass?"

Having served a customer a fish dinner, the waiter happened by & was astonished to hear him talking to the fish. "What kind of conversation can you have with a fish?" "Well, I asked him where he came from, and he said, from the Ohio River. So I asked, how are things in the Ohio River, and he said he couldn't tell me, he hadn't been there for a long time."

"Waiter! Come here and taste this soup!" "Where's the spoon?" "A-*ha*!"

I overheard another man giving his name and I recognized it. It was the name of one of my old high-school classmates. But as I looked at him, I couldn't believe he was the kid I knew. He appeared much too old—balding, with a white beard, paunchy, wrinkled, walking with a cane, and wearing a hearing aid. Nevertheless, there was a certain resemblance, so I couldn't get it out of my head that he might be the one I remembered.

I approached him and cautiously asked: "Say, did you go to Southwest High School?"

He said, "Yes, I did."

I asked, "What year did you graduate?"

He said, "1965."

The Ski Trip

Doug decided to go skiing with his buddy, Bob. They loaded up Doug's mini van and headed north. After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard. They pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered the door if they could spend the night.

"I realize it's terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to myself, but I'm recently widowed," she explained. "I'm afraid the neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house."

"Don't worry," Doug said. "We'll be happy to sleep in the barn. And if the weather breaks, we'll be gone at first light."

The lady agreed, and the two men found their way to the barn and settled in for the night. Come morning, the weather had cleared, and they got on their way.

They enjoyed a great weekend of skiing.

About nine months later, Doug got an unexpected letter from an attorney.

It took him a few minutes to figure it out, but he finally determined that it was from the attorney of that attractive widow he had met on the ski weekend.

He dropped in on his friend Bob and asked, "Bob, do you remember that good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our ski holiday up North?"

"Yes, I do."

"Did you happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and pay her a visit?"

"Yes," Bob said, a little embarrassed about being found out. "I have to admit that I did."

"And did you happen to use my name instead of telling her your name?"

Bob's face turned red and he said, "Yeah, sorry, buddy. I'm afraid I did. Why do you ask?"

"She just died and left me everything."

(But you thought the ending would be different, didn't you?)

It was delivered by Gilbert Godfrey. At the Friars club roast after 9--11 he was the first person to crack a joke about the twin towers.
The reactions was powerful with yeslls of TOO SOON and OH NO but it also was cathartic, not for closure but for liberating the angst in all their souls be it in protest or laughter.

Of course Gilbert was prompmtly fired by AFLAC, You see he is the voice of the goose who gets ignored in the commercial.

The last I saw of Gilbert he had an odd smirk as he carried a card borad box with a white goose in it past the AFLC offices with photographers snapping away.

Love him or hate him, deep down we need him.

I stopped by the Toyota Dealership yesterday for a look at the new Tacoma.
Just for fun, I took it out for a test drive. I wanted to sense that new "feel" before they become extinct...
The salesman (wearing an Obama "change" lapel pin) sat in the passenger seat describing the truck and all its "wonderful" options.   
The seats were of particular interest. He explained that the seats directed warm air to your butt in the winter and directed cool air to your butt in the summer heat.
Feeling like messing with his mind, I mentioned that this must be a Republican truck.
Looking a bit angry, he asked why I thought it was a Republican truck. I explained that if it were a Democrat truck, the seats would blow smoke up your ass year-round.
I had to walk back to the dealership........guy had no sense of humor.

He said my biscuits were too hard
Not like his mother used to make.
I didn't perk the coffee right
He didn't like the stew,

Two for St. Paddy's Day!

"St. Patrick's Day Joke"

An English clergyman turned to a Scotchman and
asked : "What would you be if you were not Scot?"

The Scotchman said: "Why, an Englishman, of
course!"

Then the clergyman turned to a gentleman from
Ireland and asked him: "And what would you be
were you not an Irishman?"

The man thought a moment and said: "I'd be
ashamed of meself!"

-----

"St. Patrick's Skull"   

Bud Nelson, from New York, flew to Knock Airport in the west of
Ireland on business.

As he walked down the stairs from the plane onto the runway he
noticed a small Irishman standing beside a long table with a
assortment of human skulls.

"What are you doing?" asked the American.

"Oh, I'm selling skulls", replied the Irishman.

"And what skulls do you have?" said Bud.

"Well, I have the skulls of the most famous Irishmen that ever lived!!"
said the Irishman.

"That's great!" said Bud. "Give me some names!"

"Well!" said the Irishman, pointing to various skulls. "That one there
is James Joyce, the famous author and playwright, that one there is
St. Brendan, the Navigator, that's Michael Collins the leader of the
1916 rising, and that one there is St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of
Ireland... God bless his soul.."

"Sorry" said Bud, "But did you say St. Patrick?"

"That's correct!" said the Irishman.

"I have to have that!" said Bud and paid him $1,650.00 in cash.

Bud flew back to New York and mounted his skull on the wall in his pub.

People came from all over America to view this famous skull. He made
a fortune over a five year period and retired a very rich man.

During his retirement, he decided to go back to visit Ireland, the land
that made him a fortune.

Bud flew back into Knock airport, and while walking down the stairs
saw the same Irishman at the bottom of the stairs.

"Goodness", said Bud, "What are you doing?"

"Oh, I'm selling skulls," replied the Irishman.

"And what skulls do you have today?" said Bud.

"Well, I have the skulls of the most famous Irishmen that ever lived!!"
said the Irishman.

"That's great!" said Bud. "Give me some names!"

"Well!" said the Irishman, pointing to various skulls. "That one there
is James Joyce, the famous author and playwright, that one there is
St. Brendan, the Navigator, that's Michael Collins the leader of the
1916 rising, and that one there is St. Patrick, the Patron Saint of
Ireland... God bless his soul."

"Sorry" said Bud, "But did you say St. Patrick?"

"That's correct!" said the Irishman.

"Well!", said Bud, I was here almost seven years ago and you sold me a
skull a little bit bigger than that one there, and you told me then that
the skull was St. Patrick."

"Oh yes!" said the Irishman, "I remember you now!...you see... This
is St. Patrick when he was a boy!"

A Yorkshireman's wife dies and the widower decides that her headstone should have the words "She were thine" engraved on it.
He calls the stone mason, who assures him that the headstone will be ready a few days after the funeral.
True to his word the stone mason calls the widower to say that the headstone is ready and would he like to come and have a look.

When the widower gets there he takes one look at the stone to see that it's been engraved "She were thin".

He explodes: "'ells bells man, you've left the blood y "e" out, you've left the blood y "e" out!"

The stone mason apologises profusely and assures the poor widower that it will be rectified the following morning.

Next day comes and the widower returns to the stone mason: "There you go sir, I've put the "e" on the stone for you".

The widower looks at the stone and then reads out aloud:

"E, she were thin".

"What A Duckhead!"

A man took his old duck to the Doctor, concerned
because the duck wouldn't eat.

The Doctor explained to the man that as ducks age
their upper bills grow down over their lower bills and
make it difficult for the animal to pick up its food.

"What you need to do is gently file the upper bill down
even with the lower bill. But you must be extra careful
because the duck's nostrils are located in the upper
bill and if you file down too far, when the duck takes
a drink of water, it'll drown."

The man went about his business, and about a week
later the Doctor ran into his patient.

"Well, how is that duck of yours?" the Doctor inquired.

"He's dead." declared the heartbroken man.

"I told you not to file his upper bill down too far! He
took a drink of water and drowned, didn't he?" insisted
the Doctor.

"No," lamented the man. "I think he was dead before
I took him out of the vise."

Why I Am Now Divorced

Last week was my birthday, and I didn't feel very well waking up on that morning.

I went downstairs for breakfast, hoping my husband would be pleasant and say, 'Happy Birthday!', and possibly have a small present for me.

As it turned out, he barely said good morning, let alone 'Happy Birthday.'

I thought...'Well, that's marriage for you, but the kids...they will remember.'

My kids came bounding down stairs to breakfast and didn't say a word. So when I left for the office, I felt pretty low and somewhat despondent.

As I walked into my office, my handsome Boss, Rick, said, 'Good morning, lady! and by the way Happy Birthday!' It felt a little better, that at least someone had remembered.

I worked until one o'clock, when Rick knocked on my door and said, 'You know, it's such a beautiful day outside, and it's your birthday, what do you say we go out to lunch, just you and me?' I said, 'Thanks, Rick, that's the greatest thing I've heard all day. Let's go!'

We went to lunch. But we didn't go where we normally would go. He chose instead a quiet bistro with a private table. We had two martinis each, and I enjoyed the meal tremendously.

On the way back to the office, Rick said, 'You know, it's such a beautiful day... We don't need to go straight back to the office, do we?'

I responded, 'I guess not. What do you have in mind?' He said, 'Let's drop by my place; it's just around the corner.'

After arriving at his house, Rick turned to me and said, 'If you don't mind, I'm going to step into the bedroom for just a moment. I'll be right back.' 'Okay,' I nervously replied.

He went into the bedroom, and after a couple of minutes he came out, carrying a huge birthday cake...

Followed by my husband, my kids, and dozens of my friends and co-workers, all singing 'Happy Birthday.'

And I just sat there....


On the couch....


Naked.

Back Yard Anthropology

A classic from my files, dated 1994. It was long ago debunked, but knowing how some people think, it sure could have been true....

Paleoanthropology Division
Smithsonian Institute
207 Pennsylvania Avenue
Washington, DC 20078

Dear Sir:

Thank you for your latest submission to the Institute, labeled "211-D, layer seven, next to the clothesline post. Hominid skull."

We have given this specimen a careful and detailed examination, and regret to inform you that we disagree with your theory that it represents "conclusive proof of the presence of Early Man in Charleston County two million years ago." Rather, it appears that what you have found is the head of a Barbie doll, of the variety one of our staff, who has small children, believes to be the "Malibu Barbie." It is evident that you have given a great deal of thought to the analysis of this specimen, and you may be quite certain that those of us who are familiar with your prior work in the field were loath to contradict your findings. However, we do feel that there are a number of physical attributes of the specimen which might have tipped you off to its modern origin:

    * The material is molded plastic. Ancient hominid remains are typically fossilized bone.

    * The cranial capacity of the specimen is approximately 9 cubic centimeters, well below the threshold of even the earliest identified proto-hominids.

    * The dentition pattern evident on the "skull" is more consistent with the common domesticated dog than it is with the "ravenous man-eating Pliocene clams" you speculate roamed the wetlands during that time. This latter finding is certainly one of the most intriguing hypotheses you have submitted in your history with this institution, but the evidence seems to weigh rather heavily against it. Without going into too much detail, let us say that:
          o The specimen looks like the head of a Barbie doll that a dog has chewed on.
          o Clams don't have teeth.

It is with feelings tinged with melancholy that we must deny your request to have the specimen carbon dated. This is partially due to the heavy load our lab must bear in its normal operation, and partly due to carbon dating's notorious inaccuracy in fossils of recent geologic record. To the best of our knowledge, no Barbie dolls were produced prior to 1956 AD, and carbon dating is likely to produce wildly inaccurate results. Sadly, we must also deny your request that we approach the National Science Foundation's Phylogeny Department with the concept of assigning your specimen the scientific name "Australopithecus spiff-arino." Speaking personally, I, for one, fought tenaciously for the acceptance of your proposed taxonomy, but was ultimately voted down because the species name you selected was hyphenated, and didn't really sound like it might be Latin.

However, we gladly accept your generous donation of this fascinating specimen to the museum. While it is undoubtedly not a hominid fossil, it is, nonetheless, yet another riveting example of the great body of work you seem to accumulate here so effortlessly. You should know that our Director has reserved a special shelf in his own office for the display of the specimens you have previously submitted to the Institution, and the entire staff speculates daily on what you will happen upon next in your digs at the site you have discovered in your back yard. We eagerly anticipate your trip to our nation's capital that you proposed in your last letter, and several of us are pressing the Director to pay for it. We are particularly interested in hearing you expand on your theories surrounding the "trans-positating fillifitation of ferrous ions in a structural matrix" that makes the excellent juvenile Tyrannosaurus Rex femur you recently discovered take on the deceptive appearance of a rusty 9-mm Sears Craftsman automotive crescent wrench.

Yours in Science,

Harvey Rowe
Curator, Antiquities

#1 The first, an Ontario surgeon, says: " I like to see accountants on my
operating table, because when you open them up, everything inside is
numbered. "

#2 The second, a Quebec surgeon, responds: " Yeah, but you should try
electricians. Everything inside of them is colour coded. "

#3 The third, a B.C. surgeon, says: " No, I really think librarians are the
best, everything inside of them is in alphabetical order. "

#4 The fourth, an Alberta surgeon, chimes in: " You know, I like
construction workers.... those guys always understand when you have a few parts left over. "

#5 But, the fifth, a Newfoundland surgeon, shut them all up when he observed: " You're all wrong. Politicians are the easiest to operate on.
There's no guts, no heart, no balls, no brains, and no spine, -- and the head and the ass are interchangeable. "

Fried Chicken

Our teacher asked us what our favorite animal was, and I said, "Fried chicken."

She said I wasn't funny, but she couldn't have been right, because everyone else in the class laughed.

My parents told me to always be truthful and honest, and I am. Fried chicken is my favorite animal.

I told my dad what happened, and he said my teacher was probably a member of PETA. He said they love animals very much. I do, too. Especially chicken, pork and beef.

Anyway, my teacher sent me to the principal's office. I told him what happened, and he laughed, too. Then he told me not to do it again.

The next day in class my teacher asked me what my favorite live animal was. I told her it was chicken. She asked me why, just like she'd asked the other children. So I told her it was because you could make them into fried chicken.

She sent me back to the principal's office again. He laughed, and told me not to do it again. I don't understand. My parents taught me to be honest, but my teacher doesn't like it when I am.

Today, my teacher asked us to tell her what famous person we admire most.

I told her, "Colonel Sanders."

The principal is making me write this, even though he laughed again.

An 86-year-old Lady's Letter to Bank

Shown below is an actual letter that was sent to a bank by an 86 year
old woman.

The bank manager thought it amusing enough to have it published in the
New York Times.

_________________________________

Dear Sir:

I am writing to thank you for bouncing my check with which I endeavored to pay my plumber last month.

By my calculations, three nanoseconds must have elapsed between his presenting the check and the arrival in my account of the funds needed
to honor it.

I refer, of course, to the automatic monthly deposit of my entire pension, an arrangement which, I admit, has been in place for only eight years.

You are to be commended for seizing that brief window of opportunity,
and also for debiting my account $30 by way of penalty for the inconvenience caused to your bank.

My thankfulness springs from the manner in which this incident has caused me to rethink my errant financial ways.

I noticed that, whereas I personally answer your telephone calls and
letters, when I try to contact you I am confronted by the impersonal, overcharging, pre-recorded, faceless entity which your bank has become.

From now on, I, like you, choose only to deal with a flesh-and-blood
person.

My mortgage and loan repayments will therefore and hereafter no longer
be automatic, but will arrive at your bank by check, addressed personally and confidentially to an employee at your bank whom you must nominate.

Be aware that it is a CRIMINAL OFFENSE under the Postal Act for any other person to open such an envelope.

Please find attached an Application Contact which I require your chosen employee to complete.

I am sorry it runs to eight pages, but in order that I know as much
about him or her as your bank knows about me, there is no alternative.

Please note that all copies of his or her medical history must be
countersigned by a Notary Public, and the mandatory details of his/her
financial situation(income, debts, assets and liabilities)must be
accompanied by documented proof.

In due course, at MY convenience, I will issue your employee with a PIN number which he/she must quote in dealings with me.

I regret that it cannot be shorter than 28 digits but, again, I have
modeled it on the number of button presses required of me to access my
account balance on your phone bank service.

As they say, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.

Let me level the playing field even further.

When you call me, press buttons as follows:

IMMEDIATELY AFTER DIALING, PRESS THE STAR(*)BUTTON FOR ENGLISH

#1. To make an appointment to see me.

#2. To query a missing payment.

#3. To transfer the call to my living room in case I am there.

#4 To transfer the call to my bedroom in case I am sleeping.

#5. To transfer the call to my toilet in case I am attending to nature.

#6. To transfer the call to my mobile phone if I am not at home.

#7. To leave a message on my computer, a password to access my computer is required.

Password will be communicated to you at a later date, addressed to that Authorized Contact mentioned earlier.

#8. To return to the main menu and to listen to options 1 through 7.

#9. To make a general complaint or inquiry.

The contact will then be put on hold, pending the attention of my
automated answering service.

#10. This is a second reminder to press * for English.

While this may, on occasion, involve a lengthy wait, uplifting music
will play for the duration of the call.

Regrettably, but again following your example, I must also levy an
establishment fee to cover the setting up of this new arrangement.

May I wish you a happy, if ever so slightly less prosperous New Year?

Your Humble Client

And remember: Don't make Old People mad. We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off.

Clever Lawyer?

In a court room in rural Oklahoma where a person is on trial for murder, there is strong evidence indicating guilt; however, there is no corpse, which would really seal his fate.

In the defense's closing statement the lawyer, knowing that his client is guilty and that it looks like he'll probably be convicted, resorts to a clever trick.

"Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I have a surprise for you all," the shyster says as he looks at his watch. "Within one minute, the person presumed dead in this case will walk into this courtroom, proving my client's innocence!" He turns and looks toward the courtroom door. The jury, somewhat stunned, follow his eyes and look too. A minute passes, but nothing happens.

Finally the lawyer says: "Actually, I made up the previous statement. But you all looked on with anticipation. I, therefore, put it to you that there is reasonable doubt in this case as to whether anyone was killed and insist that you return a verdict of not guilty."

The jury, still looking suspicious, retires to deliberate.

But only a few minutes later, the jury returns and the foreman utters their verdict: Guilty!

"But how?" inquires the lawyer. "You must have had some doubt; I saw all of you stare at the door."

"Yes, we looked," admitted the foreman. "But we noticed your client didn't."

Rec'd from a friend in my e-mail today.


HOW TO CALL THE POLICE WHEN YOU'RE OLD AND DON'T MOVE FAST ANY MORE .

George Phillips, an elderly man, from Walled Lake, Michigan, was going up to bed, when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window. George opened the back door to go turn off the light but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.

He phoned the police, who asked "Is someone in your house?"

He said "No," but some people are breaking into my garden shed and stealing from me.

Then the police dispatcher said "All patrols are busy. You should lock your doors and an officer will be along when one is available"

George said, "Okay."

He hung up the phone and counted to 30. Then he phoned the police again. "Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people stealing things from my shed.. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I just shot and killed them both, the dogs are eating them right now." and he hung up.

Within five minutes, six Police Cars, a SWAT Team, a Helicopter, two Fire Trucks, a Paramedic, and an Ambulance showed up at the Phillips' residence, and caught the burglars red-handed.

One of the Policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"

George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available!"

"Dead horse? What dead horse?"

"My prize thoroughbred is dead?"

"Yes, Senor Rod, he died from all that work pulling the water cart."

"Are you insane? What water cart?"

"Yes, Senor Rod."

"But there's electricity at the house! What was the candle for?"

"For the funeral, Senor Rod."

The German Territorial Defense decides to call up some animals who should be fit for reconnaisance purposes. So the hare, the fox and the bear get their letters to report for their medical examination.
But since they do not want to join the army, they are guessing how to avoid it.
Says the fox to the hare: "Let's cut off your long ears. No ears, not a hare, no service." So they do, and the hare comes back and says: "Unfit - No ears, not a hare, no service."
Now it's the turn of the fox. Says the hare to the fox: "Well, let's cut off your tail. No tail, not a fox, no service." So they do, and the fox comes back: "Unfit - No tail, not a fox, no service."
But what to do with the bear? The others say: "Let's break out your teeth. No teeth, not a bear, no service." The bear comes back and mumbles: "Unfit for military service - too thick."

"The Late Osama"

After dying a grisly death in a fire fight, Osama
made his way to the pearly gates. There, he was
greeted by George Washington. "How dare you
attack the nation I helped conceive!" yelled
Washington, slapping Osama in the face.

Patrick Henry came up from behind, "You wanted
to end the American's liberty, so they gave you
death!" Henry punched Osama in the nose.

James Madison came next and said, "This is why I
allowed the government to provide for the common
defense!" He took a sledge hammer and whacked
Osama's knees.

Osama was subject to similar beatings from John
Randolph, James Monroe and 67 other people who
had the same love for liberty and America. As he
writhed on the ground, Thomas Jefferson hurled him
back toward the gate where he was to be judged.

As Osama awaited his journey to his final very hot
destination, he screamed, "This is not what I was
promised!"

An angel replied, "I told you there would be 72
Virginians waiting for you. What did you think
I said?"


-----


"American Holiday"

Osama bin Laden, not feeling well and concerned
about his mortality, goes to consult a psychic about
the date of his death. Closing her eyes and silently
reaching into the realm of the future, she finds the
answer.

"You will die on an American holiday."

"Which one?" Osama bin Laden asks nervously.

"It doesn't matter," replied the psychic. "Whenever
you die, it will be an American holiday!"

Speaking as a male! On one occasion I was in deep conversation with my son while using an ATM. When my card was returned we left and had gone about 10 steps before I realised I hadn't actually taken for the money. We went back immediately but not surprisingly the notes had already evaporated. Anyway, I used an ATM yesterday and noticed that the final screen said

PLEASE TAKE YOUR CARD
AND WAIT FOR YOUR MONEY

Yes, the final line IS in bold! It obviously happens fairly often.

"Lightning"

A little girl walked daily to and from school. Though
the weather that morning was questionable and
clouds were forming, she made her daily trip to
school.

As the afternoon progressed, the winds whipped up,
along with thunder and lightning. The mother of the
little girl felt concerned that her daughter would be
frightened as she walked home from school, and she
herself feared the electrical storm might harm her child.

Following the roar of thunder, lightning, like a flaming
sword would cut through the sky. Full of concern, the
mother quickly got in her car and drove along the
route to her child's school.

As she did so, she saw her little girl walking along, but
at each flash of lightning, the child would stop, look
up and smile.

Another and another were to follow quickly, each
with the little girl stopping, looking up and smiling.
Finally, the mother called over to her child and asked,
"What are you doing?"

The child answered, "Smiling! God just keeps taking
pictures of me."

Marketing Explained, for Women

The buzz word in today's business world is marketing. However, people often ask for a simple explanation of the concept.

Well, here it is -- everything you need to know about marketing.

You're a woman and you see a handsome guy at a party. You go up to him and say, "I'm fantastic in bed."

That's Direct Marketing.

You're at a party with a bunch of friends and see a handsome guy. One of your friends goes up to him and, pointing at you, says, "She's fantastic in bed."

That's Advertising.

You see a handsome guy at a party. You go up to him and get his telephone number. The next day you call and say, "Hi, I'm fantastic in bed."

That's Telemarketing.

You see a guy at a party, you straighten your dress. You walk up to him and pour him a drink. You say, "May I?" and reach up to straighten his tie, brushing your breast lightly against his arm, and then say, "By the way, I'm fantastic in bed."

That's Public Relations.

You're at a party and see a handsome guy. He walks up to you and says, "I hear you're fantastic in bed."

That's Brand Recognition.

You're at a party and see a handsome guy. He fancies you, but you talk him into going home with your friend.

That's a Sales Representative.

Your friend can't satisfy him so he calls you.

That's Tech Support.

You're on your way to a party when you realize that there could be handsome men in all these houses you're passing. So you climb onto the roof of one situated towards the center and shout at the top of your lungs, "I'm fantastic in bed!"

That's Spam.

WOMEN WHO KNOW THEIR PLACE

Barbara Walters, of 20/20, did a story on gender roles in Kabul,Afghanistan , several years before the Afghan conflict.

She noted that women customarily walked five paces behind their husbands.

She recently returned to Kabul and observed that women still walk behind their husbands.

Despite the overthrow of the oppressive Taliban regime, the women now seem happy to maintain the old custom.

Ms Walters approached one of the Afghani women and asked,

'Why do you now seem happy with an old custom that you once tried so desperately to change?'

The woman looked Ms Walters straight in the eyes, and without hesitation said,





"Land mines."







Moral of the story is (no matter what language you speak or where you go):

BEHIND EVERY MAN, THERE'S A SMART WOMAN (OR MAYBE THREE!)

Will Rogers, who died in a 1935 plane crash, was one of the
greatest political sages this country has ever known.

Enjoy the following:
1. Never slap a man who's chewing tobacco.

2. Never kick a cow chip on a hot day.

3. There are two theories to arguing with a woman.
Neither works.

4. Never miss a good chance to shut up.

5. Always drink upstream from the herd.

6. If you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.

7. The quickest way to double your money is to fold it
and put it back into your pocket.

8. There are three kinds of men:
The ones that learn by reading.
The few who learn by observation.
The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence
and find out for themselves.

9. Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

10. If you're riding' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then
to make sure it's still there.

11. Lettin' the cat outta the bag is a whole lot easier'n puttin' it back.

12. After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring.
He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him.
The moral: When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.


ABOUT GROWING OLDER...

First ~Eventually you will reach a point when you stop lying
about your age and start bragging about it.

Second ~ The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Third ~ Some people try to turn back their odometers.
Not me; I want people to know 'why' I look this way.
I've traveled a long way, and some of the roads weren't paved.

Fourth ~ When you are dissatisfied and would like to go back to youth,
think of Algebra.

Fifth ~ You know you are getting old when everything either dries up or leaks.

Sixth ~ I don't know how I got over the hill without getting to the top.

Seventh ~ One of the many things no one tells you about aging
is that it's such a nice change from being young.

Eighth ~ One must wait until evening to see how splendid the day has been.

Ninth ~ Being young is beautiful, but being old is comfortable.

Tenth ~ Long ago, when men cursed and beat the ground with sticks,
it was called witchcraft.
Today it's called golf.

And, finally ~ If you don't learn to laugh at trouble,
you won't have anything to laugh at when you're old.

"Ma'am, does your husband ever beat you up?"

Mister explains that there will be eight coming because

has to do is get some Chinese food in, and perhaps she
can bake a cake.

This sounds like a good idea, and they sit down and

feed six.

Hubby says, "Why don't you just double the recipe?" She

"It isn't the ingredients," wife sobs. "It says that
the cake must be baked at 350 degrees, and I have

The hotshot executive goes out and buys a Ferrari GTO.

the sleek, shiny surface of the car and asks, "What kind

"Because this car can do up to 320 miles an hour!" states
the cool guy proudly.

The moped driver asks, "Can I take a look inside?"

"Sure," replies the owner.

So the old man pokes his head in the window and looks
around. Leaning back on his Moped, the old man says,
"That's a pretty nice car, all right!"

Just then, the light changes so the guy decides to show
the old man what his car can do. He floors it, gets on
Interstate 66, and within 30 seconds the speedometer
reads 320 mph.

Suddenly, he notices a dot in his rear view mirror. It seems
to be getting closer! He slows down to see what it could
be and suddenly, whhhoooossshhhh! Something whips by
him, going much faster! "What on earth could be going
faster than my Ferrari?" the young man asks himself. Then
ahead of him, he sees a dot coming toward him.
Whooooooosh! It goes by again, heading the opposite
direction! And it almost looked like the old man on the
Moped. "Couldn't be," thinks the guy. "How could a Moped
outrun a Ferrari?" Again, he sees the dot in his rear view
mirror, getting bigger!

Whooooooosh! Ka-BbblaMMM! It plows into the back of
his car, demolishing the rear end. The executive jumps out,
and it IS the old man! Of course, the Moped and the old
man are hurting' bad. He runs up to the old man and says,
"You're hurt badly! Is there anything I can do for you?"

The old man moans and replies, "Yes..... Unhook my
suspenders from your side view mirror!"

So the hunters are strolling through a clearing when they find a large hole. Curious to find out how deep it is, they chuck in a pebble... nothing. So they chuck in a rock... nothing. They look at each other. The scout around and find a really big rock it takes both of them to lift, and they chuck *that* in. Nothing. So they scout around and can't find anything, and they split up, and finally one of'm hollers "I found a railroad tie!" so they chuck THAT in. Nothing. They look at each other. Then along comes a goat, runs up and jumps straight into the hole. They look at each other some more. They decide to just leave, and head off towards the other side of the clearing, when along comes a farmer saying, have you seen a goat around anywhere? And the hunters look at each other and say, well, ma'am, the only goat we saw ran over and jumped into that hole over there. Oh, that couldn't be MY goat, says the farmer. Mine was tied to a railroad tie.

I was out walking with my Grandson. He picked up something off the ground and started to put it in his mouth. I took the item away from him and I asked him not to do that.

"Why" my Grandson asked.

"Because it's been on the ground; you don't know where it's been, it's dirty, and probably has germs, and sometimes germs make little boys sick and not feel good" I replied.

At this point, my Grandson looked at me with total admiration and asked, "Grandma, how do you know all this stuff? You are so smart."

I was thinking quickly and said to him. "All Grandmas know stuff. It's on the Grandma Test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a Grandma."

We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but he was evidently pondering this new information.

"Oh....I get it!" he beamed. "So if you don't pass the test you have to be the Grandpa."

"Exactly," I replied with a big smile on my face.

When you're finished laughing, send this to another Grandma!!
