Dead Penguins - I never knew this!
Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in
Antarctica ? Where do they go?
Wonder no more ! ! ! It is a known fact that the penguin is a very
ritualistic bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life. The
penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life, as well
asmaintain a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its
If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of the family
and social circle have been known to dig holes in the ice, using their
vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird
to be rolled into, and buried.
The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:
"Freeze a jolly good fellow."
"Freeze a jolly good fellow."
You really didn't believe that I know anything about penguins, did you?
An American astronaut has an emergency during his re-entry into earth's
atmosphere and his space craft crash-lands in the Australian bush, way
out in the middle of nowhere.
After what seems like an eternity, he wakes up in a bush clinic, very
rustic, dirty, with foul smells and he is bandaged from head to foot.
He sees a very large, somewhat gruff looking nurse approaching him as he
lies in his cot.
"Did I come here to die?" he says with a deep sense of resignation and fear.
"No," the Aussie nurse replies, "You came here yesterday."
Picture For Grandma
A man moves into a nudist colony. He receives a letter from his grandmother
asking him to send her a current photo of himself in his new location.
Too embarrassed to let her know that he lives in a nudist colony, he cuts a
photo in half but accidentally sends the bottom half of the photo.
He's really worried when he realizes that he sent the wrong half, but then
remembers how bad his grandmother's eyesight is, and hopes she won't notice.
A few weeks later he receives a letter from his grandmother. It says, "Thank
you for the picture. Change your hair style ..........it makes your nose
look too short."
A woman was trying hard to get the catsup to come out of the jar. During her
struggle the phone rang so she asked her four-year old daughter to answer
"It's the minister, Mommy," the child said to her mother.
Then she added, "Mommy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now.
She's hitting the bottle."
Donkey In The Well
One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously
for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do.
Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up
anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey.
He invited all his neighbors to come over and help him. They all grabbed a
shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well.
At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then,
to everyone's amazement he quieted down.
A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was
astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the
donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step
As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he
would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as
the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!
Life is going to shovel dirt on you, all kinds of dirt. The trick to getting
out of the well is to shake it off and take a step up. Each of our troubles
is a steppingstone. We can get out of the deepest wells just by not
stopping, never giving up! Shake it off and take a step up.
Enough of that nicey nicey . . .
The donkey later came back and bit the dickens out of the farmer who had
tried to bury him. The gash from the bite got infected, and the farmer
eventually died in agony from septic shock.

The Gorilla and the Redneck
A small zoo in Georgia obtained a very rare species of gorilla. Within a few
weeks the gorilla, a female, became very difficult to handle. Upon
examination, the veterinarian determined the problem. The gorilla was in
heat. To make matters worse, there was no male gorilla available. Thinking
about their problem, the Zoo Keeper thought of Bobby Lee Walton, a redneck
part-time worker responsible for cleaning the animal cages. Bobby Lee
had little sense but was always bragging about his honky tonk women.
The Zoo Keeper thought they might have a solution. Bobby Lee was approached
with a proposition. Would he be willing to mate with the gorilla for
Bobby Lee showed some interest, but said he would have to think the matter
over carefully. The following day, he announced that he would accept their
offer, but only under five conditions:
"First", Bobby Lee said, "I ain't gonna kiss her on the lips." The Keeper
quickly agreed to this condition.
"Second", he said, "she must wear a 'Dale Earnhardt Forever' T-Shirt." The
keeper again readily agreed to this condition.
"Third", he said, "you can't never tell no one about this." The keeper again
readily agreed to this condition.
"Fourth", Bobby Lee said, "I want all the children raised Southern Baptist."
Once again it was agreed.
And last," Bobby Lee said, "I'm gonna need another week to come up with the

Family Dinner Party
My wife hosted a Holiday dinner party for family, far and wide, and
everyone was encouraged to bring all their children as well.
During dinner, my four-year-old niece stared at me sitting across from her.
The girl could hardly eat her food for staring.
I checked my shirt for spots, felt my face for food, patted my hair in place
but nothing stopped her from staring at me.
I tried my best to just ignore her but finally it was too much for me.
I finally asked her, "Why are you staring at me?"
Everyone at the table had noticed her behavior and the table went quiet
waiting for her response.
My little niece said, "I'm just waiting to see how you drink like a fish."

Finding the Right Words
When someone tells you that something defies description, you can be pretty
sure he's going to have a go at it anyway.

How to Ruin an Interview
When you're interviewing for a job, you want to make an impression.
Hiring managers report that these people made one-just not the right kind:
Applicant hugged hiring manager at the end of the interview.
Applicant ate all the candy from the candy bowl while trying to answer
Applicant blew her nose and lined up the used tissues on the table in front
Applicant wore a hat that said "I'd rather be fishing."
Applicant talked about how an affair cost him a previous job.
Applicant threw his beer can in the outside trash can before coming into the
Applicant's friend came in and asked, "How much longer?"
Best Reason to Strike
Workers at the Carlsberg brewery in Denmark walked off the job after losing
a prized perk: unlimited beer at work. They now have to settle for three
beers at lunch. A worker told the Wall Street Journal that wasn't enough: "I
need a beer when I take a cigarette break."
The toughest part of applying for a new job is having to explain why you're
no longer at your previous one. Here are rationalizations from cover letters
that did no one any good:
"My boss thought I could do better elsewhere."
"The company made me a scapegoat, just like my previous employer."
"Note: Please don't misconstrue my 14 jobs as 'job hopping.' I have never
quit a job."
"Responsibility make me nervous."

Randy Travis True Story
This is a true story told by Randy Travis in concert. I'm not sure if the
story is true but it's true that Randy Travis told it. Here goes:
I went to see a relative in a nursing home the other day and while I was
there a nurse came in and asked it I would be so kind as to come meet some
of the other patients in the nursing home.
I said or course I would. So we walked down the hall and into the first room
where two senior citizens were sitting. For whatever reason, the nurse
introduced me by saying, "Do you know who this person is?"
One of the Seniors replied, "Well no, I can't say that I rightly know who
you are, but if you go to the main desk they will tell you."
A doctor examining a woman, took the husband aside, and said, 'I don't like
the looks of your wife at all.'
'Me neither doc,' said the husband. 'But she's a great cook and really good
with the kids.'
While shopping for vacation clothes, my husband and I passed a display of
bathing suits. It had been at least ten years and twenty pounds since I had
even considered buying a bathing suit, so I sought my husband's advice.
'What do you think?' I asked.. 'Should I get a bikini or an all-in-one?'
'Better get a bikini,' he replied 'You'd never get it all in one.'

EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE OVER 50
Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you
have plenty of room at each side.
With a 5-lb potato bag in each hand, extend your arms
straight out from your sides and hold them there as long
as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.
Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for
just a bit longer. After a couple of weeks, move up to
10-lb potato bags.
Then try 50-lb potato bags and then eventually try to
get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato bag in each
hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full
minute. (I'm at this level.)
After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in
Road Rage. . .
The light turned yellow, just in front of him. He did
the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though
he could have beaten the red light by accelerating
through the intersection. The tailgating woman was
furious and honked her horn, screaming in frustration,
as she missed her chance to get through the
intersection, dropping her cell phone and makeup.
As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her
window and looked up into the face of a very serious
police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car
with her hands up. He took her to the police station
where she was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and
placed in a holding cell.
After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the cell
and opened the door. She was escorted back to the
booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting
with her personal effects.
He said, ''I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I
pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your
horn, flipping off the guy in front of you and cussing a
blue streak at him. I noticed the 'What Would Jesus Do'
bumper sticker, the 'Choose Life' license plate holder,
the 'Follow Me to Sunday-School' bumper sticker, and the
chrome-plated Christian fish emblem on the trunk, so
naturally....I assumed you had stolen the car.''
the side of the highway waiting to catch speeding
drivers, a Police Officer sees a car puttering along at
25 MPH. Says he to himself: "This driver is just as
dangerous as a speeder!" So he turns on his lights and
pulls the driver over. Approaching the car, he notices
that there are five old ladies - two in the front seat
and three in the back - wide eyed and white as ghosts.
The driver, obviously confused, says to him "Officer, I
don't understand, I was doing exactly the speed limit!
What seems to be the problem?"
"Ma'am," the officer replies, "you weren't speeding, but
you should know that driving slower than the speed limit
can also be a danger to other drivers.."
"Slower than the speed limit? No sir, I was doing the
speed limit exactly...Twenty-Five miles an hour!" the
old woman says a bit proudly.
The Police officer, trying to contain a chuckle explains
to her that 25 is the highway number, not the speed
A bit embarrassed, the woman grins and thanks the
officer for pointing out her error.
"But before I let you go, Ma'am, I have to ask..Is
everyone in this car OK? These women seem awfully
shaken, and they haven't made a peep this whole time,"
the officer asks.
"Oh, they'll be all right in a minute officer. We just
got off Highway 110."

So she continues upward. The third floor sign reads:
Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are
Extremely Good Looking.
'Wow,' she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.
She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead
Good Looking and Help With Housework.
'Oh, mercy me!' she exclaims, 'I can hardly stand it!'
Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead
Gorgeous, Helps with Housework, owns a BMW and a mansion
on the beach and has a Strong Romantic Streak.

as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you

On the first day God created the cow. God said, "You

"Entertain people, do monkey tricks, make them laugh.
I'll give you a twenty year life span." Monkey said,
"How boring, monkey tricks for twenty years? I don't
think so. Dog gave you back ten, so that's what I'll do
And God agreed again.
On the fourth day God created man. God said, "Eat,
sleep, play, have sex, enjoy. Do nothing, just enjoy,
enjoy. I'll give you twenty years."
Man said, "What? Only twenty years? No way man. Tell you
what, I'll take my twenty, and the forty cow gave back,
and the ten dog gave back and the ten monkey gave back.
That makes eighty, okay?"
"Okay," said God. "You've got a deal."
So that is why for the first twenty years we eat, sleep,
play, have sex, enjoy, and do nothing; for the next
forty years we slave in the sun to support our family;
for the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain
our grandchildren; and for the last ten years we sit in
front of the house and bark at everybody.

AT THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE
A gorgeous young redhead goes into the doctor's office
and said that her body hurt wherever she touched it.
'Impossible!' says the doctor.. 'Show me.'
The redhead took her finger, pushed on her left shoulder
and screamed, then she pushed her elbow and screamed
even more. She pushed her knee and screamed; likewise
she pushed her ankle and screamed. Everywhere she
touched made her scream.
The doctor said, 'You're not really a redhead, are you?

'I thought so,' the doctor said, 'Your finger is

Arthur is 90 years old. He's played golf every day since
his retirement 25 years ago. One day he arrives home
looking downcast. "That's it," he tells his wife. "I'm
giving up golf. My eyesight has become so bad that once
I hit the ball I couldn't see where it went."
His wife sympathises and makes him a cup of tea. As they
sit down she says, "Why don't you take my brother with
you and give it one more try."
"That's no good" sighs Arthur, "your brother's a hundred
and three. He can't help."
"He may be a hundred and three", says the wife, "but his
eyesight is perfect."
So the next day Arthur heads off to the golf course with
his brother-in-law. He tees up, takes a mighty swing and
squints down the fairway.
He turns to the brother-in-law and says, "Did you see
"Of course I did!" replied the brother-in-law. "I have

When I was a young minister, a funeral director asked me
to hold a grave side service for a homeless man with no
family or friends. The funeral was to be at a cemetery
way out in the country. This was a new cemetery and this
man was the first to be laid to rest there.
I was not familiar with the area and became lost. Being
a typical man, of course, I did not ask for directions.
I finally found the cemetery about an hour late. The
back hoe was there and the crew was eating their lunch.
The hearse was nowhere to be seen.
I apologized to the workers for being late. As I looked
into the open grave, I saw the vault lid already in
place. I told the workers I would not keep them long,
but that this was the proper thing to do. The workers,
still eating their lunch, gathered around the opening.
I was young and enthusiastic and poured out my heart and
soul as I preached. The workers joined in with, "Praise
the Lord," "Amen," and "Glory!" I got so into the
service that I preached and preached and preached, from
Genesis to The Revelation.
When the service was over, I said a prayer and walked to
my car. As I opened the door, I heard one of the workers
say, "I never saw anything like that before and I've
been putting in septic systems for twenty years."
Late For Class
A little girl, dresses in her "Sunday best" was late and
running to her Sunday school class. As she ran, she
prayed, "Dear God, please don't let me be late. Dear
God, please don't let me be late." Then she fell.
She got up, dusted her self off and saw that her dress
was now dirty and had a little tear. She started running
again, still praying, "Dear God, please don't let me be
late." But this time she added, "But please don't push
A new pastor was visiting the homes of his parishioners.
At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home,
but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door.
Therefore, he took out a card and wrote "Revelation
3:20" on the back of it and stuck it in the door.
When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he
found that his card had been returned. Added to it was
this cryptic message, Genesis 3:10."
Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he
broke up in gales of laughter.
Revelation 3:20 begins "Behold, I stand at the door and
knock." Genesis 3:10 reads, "I heard your voice in the
garden and I was afraid, for I was naked."
This is the true story of George Phillips of Meridian,
Mississippi, who was going to bed when his wife told him
that he'd left the light on in the shed. George opened
the door to go turn off the light but saw there were
people in the shed in the process of stealing things.
He immediately phoned the police, who asked "Is someone
in your house?" and George said no and explained the
situation. Then they explained that all patrols were
busy, and that he should simply lock his door and an
officer would be there when available.
George said, "Okay," hung up, counted to 30, and phoned
the police again.
"Hello, I just called you a few seconds ago because
there were people in my shed. Well, you don't have to
worry about them now because I've just shot them all."
Then he hung up. Within five minutes three squad cars,
an Armed Response unit, and an ambulance showed up. Of
course, the police 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

aisle seat next to the two attorneys. The physician
kicked off his shoes, wiggled his toes and was settling
in when the attorney in the window seat said, "I think
I'll get up and get a Coke."
"No problem," said the physician, "I'll get it for you."
While he was gone, one of the attorneys picked up the
physician shoe and spat in it.
When he returned with the Coke, the other attorney said,
"That looks good, think I'll have one too."
Again, the physician obligingly went to fetch it and
while he was gone, the other attorney picked up the
other shoe and spat in it. The Physician returned and
they all sat back and enjoyed the flight. As the plane
was landing, the Physician slipped his feet into his
shoes and knew immediately what had happened.

Cop and the Juggler
A Cop pulled a car over for speeding.
When the Cop asked the driver why he was traveling
95mph, the driver answered that he was a juggler on his
way to do a show for a birthday party and didn't want to
The Cop told the driver he was fascinated by juggling,
and if the driver would do a little juggling for him
that he wouldn't give him a ticket.
The driver told the Cop that he had sent all of his
equipment on ahead and didn't have anything to juggle.
The Cop told him that he had some flares in the trunk of
his patrol car, and asked if he could juggle them.
The juggler stated that he could, so the Cop got three
flares, lit them and handed them to the juggler.
While the man was doing his juggling act, a car pulled
in behind the patrol car.
A drunk got out, watched the performance briefly, went
over to the patrol car, opened the rear door and got in.
The Cop observed him doing this, and went over to the
patrol car, opened the door and asked the drunk what he
thought he was doing.
The drunk replied, "You might as well haul my butt to
jail, cause there's NO way I’ll pass that test."

A man is talking to the family doctor. "Doc, I think my

on her to test her hearing. Stand some distance away
from her and ask her a question. If she doesn't answer,
move a little closer and ask again. Keep repeating this
until she answers. Then you'll be able to tell just how
hard of hearing she really is."
The man goes home and tries it out. He walks in the door
and says, "Honey, what's for dinner?" He doesn't hear an
answer, so he moves closer to her. "Honey, what's for
dinner?" Still no answer. He repeats this several times,
until he's standing just a few feet away from her.
Finally, she answers, "For the eleventh time, I said
we're having MEATLOAF!"

English as the Official Language of Europe
The European Union commissioners have announced that
agreement has been reached to adopt English as the
preferred language for European communications, rather
than German, which was the other possibility.
As part of the negotiations, the British government
conceded that English spelling had some room for
improvement and has accepted a five year phased plan for
what will be known as EuroEnglish (Euro for short).

This will make words like "fotograf" 20 persent shorter.
In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling
kan be expected to reach the stage where more
komplikated changes are possible. Governments will
enkorage the removal of double letters, which have
always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil

is disgrasful, and they would go.
By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such

Made in Heaven
One rainy Sunday afternoon, a young couple were on their
way to their Church to get married. On the way there,
their car lost control and slammed into a telephone pole
- killing them both instantly.
The couple soon found themselves standing in front of
St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, welcoming them to Heaven.
The young woman asks Peter if they could get married in
Heaven, since their time on Earth was cut short. He
replies that he'll get back with them on that request.
A month later, St. Peter finds them and announces that
they can - in fact - get married in Heaven. To his
suprise, the woman asks "Just wondering, if things don't
work out will we be able to get a divorce?"
With a stern look in his eye, Peter blurts out "Look

Morris the loudmouth mechanic was removing the cylinder
heads from the motor of a car when he spotted the famous

to the side, waiting for the service manager to come
look at his Mercedes.
Morris shouted across the garage, "Hey DeBakey! Is dat
you? "Come on ova' here a minute."
The famous surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to
where Morris the mechanic was working on the car.
Morris straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and
asked argumentatively, "So Mr. Fancy Doctor, look at dis
here work. I also open hearts, take valves out, grind 'em,
put in new parts, and when I finish dis baby will purr
like a kitten. So how come you get da big bucks, when

The Golden Telephone
A man in Topeka, Kansas, decided to write a book about
churches around the country. He started by flying to San
Francisco, and started working east from there. Going to
a very large church, he began taking photographs and
making notes. He spotted a golden telephone on the
vestibule wall and was intrigued with a sign which read
"$10,000 a minute." Seeking out the pastor he asked
about the phone.
The pastor answered that this golden phone is, in fact,
a direct line to Heaven and if he pays the price he can
talk directly to God.
The man thanked the pastor and continued on his way. As
he continued to visit churches in Seattle, Michigan,
Chicago, Milwaukee, and all around the United States, he
found more phones, with the same sign, and got the same
answer from each pastor.
Finally, he arrived in Brownwood, Texas. Upon entering a
church there, behold, he saw the usual golden telephone.
But THIS time, the sign read "Calls: 25 cents."
Fascinated, he asked to talk to the pastor. "Reverend, I
have been in cities all across the country and in each
church, I have found this golden telephone and have been
told it is a direct line to Heaven and that I could talk
to God, but, in the other churches the cost was $10,000
a minute. Your sign reads 25 cents a call. Why?"
The pastor, smiling, replied, "Son, you're in Texas now.
This is God's country... and it's a local call."
Predicting the Weather

Rifle Range Trouble
A new Army recruit was on the rifle range. He fired 50
shots and completely missed the target with every shot!
His Drill Instructor called him to attention and got in
his face. “What’s the matter with you?” shouted the DI.
“Why can’t you hit the target? What were you in civilian
“I was a Cable TV repair man,” replied the recruit, “and
I don’t know why I can’t hit the target. Let me see…”
The man checked his rifle, checked his rifle again and
then checked his rifle a third time. He then put his
finger in front of the muzzle, pulled the trigger and
blew the end of his finger off!
“Well,” the phone man said, writhing in pain, “the
bullets are leaving this end here fine. The trouble must
be on the other end!”.

Ten Commandments for “Working Hard”
1. Never walk without a document in your hands
People with documents in their hands look like
hardworking employees heading for important meetings.
People with nothing in their hands look like they’re
heading for the cafeteria. People with a newspaper in
their hand look like they’re heading for the toilet.
Above all, make sure you carry loads of stuff home with
you at night, thus generating the false impression that
you work longer hours than you do.
2. Use computers to look busy
Any time you use a computer, it looks like “work” to the
casual observer. You can send and receive personal
e-mail, chat and generally have a blast without doing
anything remotely related to work. These aren’t exactly
the societal benefits that the proponents of the
computer revolution would like to talk about but they’re
not bad either. When you get caught by your boss - and
you *will* get caught — your best defense is to claim
you’re teaching yourself to use new software, thus
saving valuable training dollars.
3. Messy desk
Top management can get away with a clean desk. For the
rest of us, it looks like we’re not working hard enough.
Build huge piles of documents around your workspace. To
the observer, last year’s work looks the same as today’s
work; it’s volume that counts. Pile them high and wide.
If you know somebody is coming to your cubicle, bury the
document you’ll need halfway down in an existing stack
and rummage for it when he/she arrives.
4. Voice Mail
Never answer your phone if you have voice mail. People
don’t call you just because they want to give you
something for nothing - they call because they want YOU
to do work for THEM. That’s no way to live. Screen all
your calls through voice mail. If somebody leaves a
voice mail message for you and it sounds like impending
work, respond during lunch hour when you know they’re
not there - it looks like you’re hardworking and
conscientious even though you’re being a devious weasel.
5. Looking Impatient and Annoyed
According to George Costanza, one should also always try
to look impatient and annoyed to give your bosses the
impression that you are always busy.
6. Leave the office late
Always leave the office late, especially when the boss
is still around. You could read magazines and storybooks
that you always wanted to read but have no time until
late before leaving. Make sure you walk past the boss’
room on your way out. Send important emails at unearthly
hours (e.g. 9:35pm, 7:05am, etc.) and during public
7. Creative Sighing for Effect
Sigh loudly when there are many people around, giving
the impression that you are under extreme pressure.
8. Stacking Strategy
It is not enough to pile lots of documents on the table.
Put lots of books on the floor etc. (thick computer
manuals are the best).
9. Build Vocabulary
Read up on some computer magazines and pick out all the
jargon and new products. Use the phrases freely when in
conversation with bosses. Remember: They don’t have to
understand what you say, but you sure sound impressive.
10. MOST IMPORTANT:
DON’T forward this to your boss by mistake!!!
Three doctors arrived in heaven. St. Peter asked the
first one why he should be let into heaven.
The doctor said Because I won the Nobel Peace Prize for

free clinics and helped those in need for free. St.

across the United States.
St. Peter thought about it for a minute and said, OK…

A husband and wife are having major problems after 15
years of marriage, so they go to a counselor.
The counselor asks them what the problem is. The wife
launches into a tirade, listing every problem they have
ever had in the 15 years they've been married. She goes
on and on and on.
Finally, the counselor gets up, walks around the desk,
embraces the wife and kisses her very passionately. The
woman shuts up and stares at him quietly in a daze.
The counselor then turns to the husband and says, "Your
wife is lonely. This is what your wife needs at least
three times a week. Can you do this?"
The husband thinks for a moment and replies, "Well, I

only 4 ways out of this airplane..."
After landing: "Thank you for flying Delta Business

From a Southwest Airlines employee.... "Welcome aboard
Southwest Flight XXX to YYY. To operate your seatbelt,
insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull tight. It
works just like every other seatbelt, and if you don't
know how to operate one, you probably shouldn't be out
in public unsupervised.
In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, oxygen
masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming,
grab the mask, and pull it over your face.
If you have a small child traveling with you, secure
your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are
traveling with two or more small children, decide now
which one you love more.
Weather at our destination is 50 degrees with some
broken clouds, we'll but try to have them fixed before
we arrive. Thank you, and remember, nobody loves you, or
your money, more than Southwest Airlines."
"Your seat cushions can be used for flotation, and in
the event of an emergency water landing, please take
them with our compliments."
Once on a Southwest flight, the pilot said, "We've
reached our cruising altitude now, and I'm turning off
the seat belt sign. I'm switching to autopilot, too, so
I can come back there and visit with all of you for the
rest of the flight."
"Should the cabin lose pressure, oxygen masks will drop
from the overhead area. Please place the bag over your

Overheard on an American Airlines flight into Amarillo,
Texas, on a particularly windy and bumpy day. During the
final approach the Captain was really having to fight
it. After an extremely hard landing, the Flight
Attendant came on the PA and announced, "Ladies and
Gentlemen, welcome to Amarillo. Please remain in your
seats with your seatbelts fastened while the Captain
taxis what's left of our airplane to the gate!"
Another flight attendant's comment on a less than
perfect landing: "We ask you to please remain seated as
Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the terminal."
An airline pilot wrote that on this particular flight he
had hammered his ship into the runway really hard. The
airline had a policy which required the first officer to
stand at the door while the passengers exited, smile,
and give them a "Thanks for flying XYZ airline." He said
that in light of his bad landing, he had a hard time
looking the passengers in the eye, thinking that someone
would have a smart comment. Finally evryone had gotten
off except for this little old lady walking with a cane.
She said, "Sonny, mind if I ask you a question?" "Why no
Ma'am," said the pilot, "what is it?" The little old
lady said, "Did we land or were we shot down?"
After a real crusher of a landing in Phoenix, the Flight
Attendant came on with, "Ladies and Gentlemen, please

warning bells are silenced, we'll open the door and you
can pick your way through the wreckage to the terminal."

to a tribe of headhunters cut off from civilization. In
the distance they could hear drums. "What is that
drumming?" he asked nervously. The native replied,
"Drums okay, but if they stop it would be very bad".
The drums continued for 3 days as they got closer to the
headhunters' village. Then without warning the drums
suddenly stopped. The forest fell eerily silent. With

There was a Texas oil tycoon who was watching his
largest oil well going up in flames. He called in the
best fire fighting equipment money could buy but there
was no way they could get close enough to the intense
flames to reach them with their water hose. Finally, out
of desperation, he called the local volunteer fire
department. They chugged up in their 1946 truck and
passed every one of the state of the art rigs and headed
toward the center of the fire. They stopped, jumped out,
sprayed each other down with water, and then proceeded
to put out the fire. When they were finally finished,
the millionaire was so impressed with the crew's
dedication and bravery, he awarded the chief with a
check for $10,000. Later, a reporter asked the chief
what he was going to do with the money. The chief
replied, "Well, the first thing we're going to do is fix
those lousy brakes!!"

Husband and Wife
A husband reading the paper after breakfast. He came
across an article about a beautiful actress that was
about to marry a football player who was known primarily
for his lack of IQ and common knowledge.

face. "I'll never understand why the biggest schmucks
get the most attractive wives."
His wife replies, "Why thank you, dear!"

A man was leaving a convenience store with his morning
coffee when he
noticed a most unusual funeral procession approaching
A long black hearse was followed by a second long black
hearse about 50
feet behind the first one. Behind the second hearse was
a solitary man
walking a dog on a leash.
Behind him, a short distance back, were about 200 men
The man couldn't stand the curiosity. He respectfully
approached the man
walking the dog and said, "I am so sorry for your loss,
and I know now
is a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen a
funeral like this.
Whose funeral is it?"
"What happened to her?"
The man replied, "My dog attacked and killed her."
He inquired further, "But who is in the second hearse?"
The man answered, "My mother-in-law. She was trying to
help my wife when
the dog turned on her."
A poignant and thoughtful moment of silence passed
between the two men.
"Can I borrow the dog?"
"Get in line."

What Would You Say?
A farmer named Clyde had a car accident. In court, the
trucking company's fancy hot shot lawyer, was
questioning Clyde. "Didn't you say, at the scene of the
accident, 'I'm fine,'?" asked the lawyer.
Clyde responded, "Well, I'll tell you what happened. I
had just loaded my favourite cow, Bessie, into the..."
"I didn't ask for any details", the lawyer interrupted.
"Just answer the question, please. Did you, or did you
not say, at the scene of the accident, 'I'm fine!'?"
Clyde said, "Well, I had just got Bessie into the
trailer and I was driving down the road...."
The lawyer interrupted again and said, "Your Honour, I
am trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of
the accident, this man told the Highway Patrolman on the
scene that he was just fine. Now several weeks after the
accident he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is
a fraud. Please tell him to simply answer the question."
By this time, the Judge was fairly interested in Clyde's
answer and said to the lawyer, "I'd like to hear what he
has to say about his favourite cow, Bessie".
Clyde thanked the Judge and proceeded. "Well, as I was
saying, I had just loaded Bessie, my favourite cow, into
the trailer and was driving her down the highway when
this huge semi-truck and trailer ran the stop sign and
smacked my truck right in the side. I was thrown into
one ditch and Bessie was thrown into the other. I was
hurting, real bad and didn't want to move. However, I
could hear old Bessie moaning and groaning. I knew she
was in terrible shape just by her groans. Shortly after
the accident a Highway Patrolman came on the scene. He
could hear Bessie moaning and groaning, so he went over
to her. After he looked at her, and saw her fatal
condition, he took out his gun and shot her between the
eyes. Then the Patrolman came across the road, gun still
in hand, looked at me, and said, "How are you feeling?"
"Now tell me, what the heck would you say?"

Changing Times in the Mid East

Nature has many laws that hold fast and true. For
example, a baby ape will always grow-up to be an ape;
likewise, a baby baboon will become an adult baboon. A
baby pig will mature into a full grown pig. A baby
jackass will always become a jackass. A puppy quickly
matures into a dog; a mongrel pup develops into a cur.
Yet oddly enough, women say a young man may grow-up to
be any one of these.
"Has your husband lived up to all the things he said
before you were married?"
"No, He's only lived up to one of them."
"Which one was that?"
"He said he wasn't good enough for me."
An Old Prospector……
An old prospector shuffled into town leading an old tired mule. The old man
headed straight for the only saloon in town to clear his parched throat. He
walked up to the saloon and tied his old mule to the hitch rail.
As he stood there brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a
young gunslinger stepped out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a
bottle of whiskey in the other. The young gunslinger looked at the old man
and laughed, saying, 'Hey old man, have you ever danced?'
The old man looked up at the gunslinger and said, 'No, I never did dance, --
and just never wanted to.' A crowd had gathered quickly and the gunslinger
grinned and said, 'Well, you old fool, you're gonna' dance now,' and started
shooting at the old man's feet.
The old prospector in order to not get a toe blown off or his boots
perforated was soon hopping around like a flea on a hot skillet and
everybody was laughing fit to be tied. When the last bullet had been fired
the young gunslinger, still laughing, holstered his gun and turned around to
go back into the saloon. The old man turned to his pack mule, pulled out a
double barreled shotgun, and cocked both hammers back. The loud, audible
double clicks carried clearly through the desert air.
The crowd stopped laughing immediately. The young gunslinger heard the
sounds, too, and he turned around very slowly. The quiet was almost
The crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the old timer and the large
gaping holes of those twin barrels. He found it hard to swallow.. The
barrels of the shotgun never wavered in the old man's hands.
The old man said, 'Son, did you ever kiss a mule's ass?'
The boy bully swallowed hard and said, 'No. But I've always wanted to.'
There are two lessons for us all here: 1. Don't waste ammunition. 2. Don't

How the Stimulus Plan Will Work
Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House.
One is from Chicago, another is from Tennessee, and the third is from
Minnesota. All three go with a White House official to examine the fence.The
Minnesota contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then
works some figures with a pencil.
"Well," he says, "I figure the job will run about $900: $400 for materials,
$400 for my crew and $100 profit for me.
"The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says,
"I can do this job for $700: $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100
profit for me."
The Chicago contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the
WhiteHouse official and whispers, "$2,700."
The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the other
guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?"
The Chicago contractor whispers back, "$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we
hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence."
"Done!" replies the government official.

Q: "A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do
you trust your fellow officers?"

Q: "With your life? Let me ask you this then officer. Do you have a room
where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?"

Q: "And do you have a locker in the room?"
A: "Yes sir, I do."
Q: "And do you have a lock on your locker?"

these same officers?"
A: "You see, sir -- we share the building with the court complex, and
sometimes lawyers have been known to walk through that room."

A TEXAS Wife
Three men married wives from different states. The first man married a woman
from Michigan. He told her that she was to do their dishes and house
cleaning. It took a couple of days, but on the third day, he came home to
see a clean house and dishes washed and put away.
The second man married a woman from Missouri. He gave his wife orders that
she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the cooking. The first day he
didn't see any results, but the next day he saw it was better. By the third
day, he saw his house was clean, the dishes were done and there was a huge
dinner on the table.
The third man married a girl from TEXAS. He ordered her to keep the house
cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry washed, and hot meals on the
table for every meal. He said the first day he didn't see anything, the
second day he didn't see anything but by the third day, some of the swelling
had gone down and he could see a little out of his left eye, and his arm was
healed enough that he could fix himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher.

when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out in a

"Me first! Me first!" says the admin clerk. "I want to be in the Bahamas,
driving a speedboat, without a care in the world." Poof! She's gone.
In astonishment, "Me next! Me next!" says the sales rep. "I want to be in
Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply
of pina coladas and the love of my life." Poof! He's gone.
"OK, you're up," the Genie says to the GM. The manager says,"I want those

"Sir, Natalie is one of our most expensive ladies, perhaps you should see
someone else." "No, I must see Natalie."
Just then Natalie appears and announced to the man that she charged $10,000
Without blinking the man reached into his pocket and handed her $10,000. The
two went up to the room for an hour.
The next night he appeared again, demanding to see Natalie. Natalie
explained that it was rare for anyone to come back two nights in a row and
that there was no discount, her price remained at $10,000 a visit. Again the
man took out the money, the two went up to the room, and an hour later he
left. When he showed up on the third consecutive night, no one could believe
it. Again he handed Natalie $10,000, and they went up to the room.
At the end of an hour Natalie questioned the man: "No one has ever used my

replied, "I'm from Phoenix." "Really," she replied. "I have family there!"
"Yes, I know," said the gentleman. "Your father died and I am your sister's

A Dog's Rules For Christmas
1. Be especially patient with your humans during this time. They may appear
to be more stressed-out than usual and they will appreciate long comforting
2. They may come home with large bags of things they call gifts. Do not
assume that all the gifts are yours.
3. Be tolerant if your humans put decorations on you. They seem to get some
special kind of pleasure out of seeing how you look with fake antlers.
4. They may bring a large tree into the house and set it up in a prominent
place and cover it with lights and decorations. Bizarre as this may seem to
you, it is an important ritual for your humans, so there are some things you
need to know:
a. Don't pee on the tree
b. Don't drink water in the container that holds the tree
c. Mind your tail when you are near the tree
d. If there are packages under the tree, even ones that smell interesting or
that have your name on them, don't rip them open
e. Don't chew on the cord that runs from the funny-looking hole in the wall
to the tree
5. Your humans may occasionally invite lots of strangers to come visit
during this season. These parties can be lots of fun, but they also call for
some discretion on your part:
a. Not all strangers appreciate kisses and leans
b. Don't eat off the buffet table
c. Beg for goodies subtly
d. Be pleasant, even if unknowing strangers sit on your sofa
e. Don't drink out of glasses that are left within your reach
6. Likewise, your humans may take you visiting. Here your manners will also
a. Observe all the rules in #4 for trees that may be in other people's
houses. (4a is particularly important)
b. Respect the territory of other animals that may live in the house
c. Tolerate children
d. Turn on your charm big time
7. A big man with a white beard and a very loud laugh may emerge from your
fireplace in the middle of the night.

The Twelve Thank-you Notes of Christmas
My dearest darling Edward,
What a wonderful surprise has just greeted me! That sweet partridge, in that
lovely little pear-tree; what an enchanting, romantic, poetic present! Bless
you, and thank you.
Your deeply loving,
The two turtle-doves arrived this morning, and are cooing away in the
pear-tree as I write. I'm so touched and grateful!
With undying love, as always,
My darling Edward,
You do think of the most original presents! Who ever thought of sending
anybody three French hens? Do they really come all the way from France? It's
a pity we have no chicken coops, but I expect we'll find some. Anyway,
thank-you so much; they're lovely.
What a surprise! Four calling birds arrived this morning. They are very
sweet, even if they do call rather loudly - they make telephoning almost
impossible - but I expect they'll calm down when they get used to their new
home. Anyway, I'm very grateful, of course I am.
Love from Emily
The mailman has just delivered five most beautiful gold rings, one for each
finger, and all fitting perfectly! A really lovely present! Lovelier, in a
way, than birds, which do take rather a lot of looking after. The four that
arrived yesterday are still making a terrible row, and I'm afraid none of us
got much sleep last night. Mother says she wants to use the rings to "wring"
their necks. Mother has such a sense of humour. This time she's only joking,
I think, but I do know what shemeans. Still, I love the rings.
Whatever I expected to find when I opened the front door this morning, it
certainly wasn't six socking great geese laying eggs all over the porch.
Frankly, I rather hoped that you had stopped sending me birds. We have no
room for them, and they've already ruined the croquet lawn. I know you meant
well, but let's call a halt, shall we?
I thought I said NO MORE BIRDS. This morning I woke up to find no more than
seven swans, all trying to get into our tiny goldfish pond. I'd rather not
think what's happened to the goldfish. The whole house seems to be full of
birds, to say nothing of what they leave behind them, so please, please,
Frankly, I prefer the birds. What am I to do with eight milkmaids? And their
cows! Is this some kind of a joke? If so, I'm afraid I don't find it very
Look here, Edward,
This has gone far enough. You say you're sending me nine ladies dancing. All
I can say is, judging from the way they dance, they're certainly not ladies.
The village just isn't accustomed to seeing a regiment of shameless viragos,
with nothing on but their lipstick, cavorting round the green, and it's
mother and I who get the blame. If you value our friendship, which I do
(less and less), kindly stop this ridiculous behaviour at once!
As I write this letter, 10 disgusting old men are prancing up and down all
over what used to be the garden, before the geese and the swans and the cows
got at it. And several of them, I have just noticed, are being a nuisance
with the milkmaids. Meanwhile the neighbours are trying to have us evicted.
I shall never speak to you again.
This is the last straw! You know I detest bagpipes! The place has now become
something between a menagerie and a madhouse, and a man from the council has
just declared it unfit for habitation. At least Mother has been spared this
last outrage; they took her away yesterday afternoon in an ambulance to a
home for the bewildered. I hope you're satisfied.
Our client, Miss Emily Wilbraham, instructs me to inform you that with the
arrival on her premises at 7:30 this morning of the entire percussion

importuning her further. I am making arrangements for the return of much

Saying The Right Thing
Jack wakes up with a huge hangover after attending his company's Christmas
Party. Jack is not normally a drinker, but the drinks didn't taste like
alcohol at all. He didn't even remember how he got home from the party. As
bad as he was feeling, he wondered if he did something wrong.
Jack had to force himself to open his eyes and the first thing he sees is a
couple of aspirins next to a glass of water on the side table. And, next to
them, a single red rose! Jack sits up and sees his clothing in front of him,
all clean and pressed. He looks around the room and sees that it is in
perfect order, spotlessly clean. So is the rest of the house. He takes the
aspirins, cringes when he sees a huge black eye staring back at him in the
bathroom mirror. Then he notices a note hanging on the corner of the mirror
written in red with little hearts on it and a kiss mark from his wife in
"Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to get groceries to make you
your favorite dinner tonight. I love you, darling! Love, Jillian"
He stumbles to the kitchen and sure enough, there is hot breakfast, steaming
hot coffee and the morning newspaper. His son is also at the table, eating.
Jack asks, "Son... What happened last night?"
"Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk and out of your mind. You fell over
the coffee table and broke it, and then you puked in the hallway, and got
that black eye when you ran into the door.
Confused, he asked his son, "So, why is everything in such perfect order and
so clean? I have a rose, and breakfast is on the table waiting for me??"
His son replies, "Oh THAT! Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she
tried to take your pants off, you screamed, "Leave me alone, I'm married!!"
Broken Coffee Table: $239.99. Hot Breakfast: $4.20. Two Aspirins: $.38.
Saying the right thing, at the right time. . . PRICELESS!!!
9 Jokes That Can Be Told In Church
Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her
mother, "Why is the bride dressed in white?" "Because white is the color of
happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life." The child thought
about this for a moment then said, "So why the groom wearing black?"
A little girl, dressed in her Sunday best, was running as fast as she could,
trying not to be late for Bible class. As she ran she prayed, "Dear Lord,
please don't let me be late! Dear Lord, please don't let me be late!" While
she was running and praying, she tripped on a curb and fell, getting her
clothes dirty and tearing her dress. She got up, brushed herself off, and
started running again! As she ran she once again began to pray "Dear Lord,
please don't let me be late...But please don't shove me either!"
Three boys are in the school yard bragging about their fathers. The first
boy says, "My Dad scribbles a few words on a piece of paper, he calls it a
poem, they give him $50." The second boy says, "That's nothing. My Dad
scribbles a few words on piece of paper, he calls it a song, they give him
$100." The third boy says, "I got you both beat. My Dad scribbles a few
words on a piece of paper, he calls it a sermon, and it takes eight people
to collect all the money!"
An elderly woman died last month. Having never married, she requested no

thy mother," she asked, "Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat
our brothers and sisters?" Without missing a beat, one little boy answered,
"Thou shall not kill."
At Sunday School they were teaching how God created everything, including
human beings. Little Johnny seemed especially intent when they told him how
Eve was created out of one of Adam's ribs. Later in the week his mother
noticed him lying down as though he were ill, and she said, "Johnny, what is
the matter?" Little Johnny responded, "I have pain in my side. I think I'm
going to have a wife."
Two boys were walking home from Sunday school after hearing a strong
preaching on the devil. One said to the other, "What do you think about all
this Satan stuff?" The other boy replied, "Well, you know how Santa Claus
turned out. It's probably just your Dad."
Young Chuck moved to Montana and bought a horse from a farmer for $100.00.

up and said, "Sorry, Son, but I have some bad news, The horse died."

The farmer said, "Can't do that. I went and spent it already."
Chuck said, "Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse."
The farmer asked, "What ya gonna do with him?"
Chuck said, "I'm going to raffle him off."
The farmer said, "You can't raffle off a dead horse!"
Chuck said, "Sure I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he's dead."
A month later, the farmer met up with Chuck and asked, "What happened With
that dead horse?"
Chuck said, "I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a Piece
and made a net profit of $898.00."
The farmer said, "Didn't anyone complain?"
Chuck said, "Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back."
Chuck grew up and now works for the government.

Top 8 Idiots of 2000
Idiot # 1 I am a medical student currently doing a rotation in toxicology at
the poison control center. Today, this woman called in very upset because
she caught her little daughter eating ants. I quickly reassured her that the
ants are not harmful and there would be no need to bring her daughter into
the hospital. She calmed down, and at the end of the conversation happened
to mention that she gave her daughter some ant poison to eat in order to
kill the ants. I told her that she better bring her daughter into the
Emergency room right away.
Idiot # 2 Seems that a year ago, some Boeing employees on the airfield
decided to steal a life raft from one of the 747s. They were successful in
getting it out of the plane and home. When they took it for a float on the
river, a Coast Guard helicopter coming towards them surprised them. It
turned out that the chopper was homing in on the emergency locator beacon
which activated when the raft was inflated.
They are no longer employed at Boeing.
Idiot # 3 A true story out of San Francisco: A man, wanting to rob a
downtown Bank of America, walked into the branch and wrote "this iz a
stikkup. Put all your muny in this bag." While standing in line, waiting to
give his note to the teller, he began to worry that someone had seen him
write the note and might call the police before he reached the teller
window. So he left the Bank of America and crossed the street to Wells
After waiting a few minutes in line, he handed his note to the Wells Fargo
teller. He read it and, surmising from his spelling errors that he wasn't
the brightest light in the harbor, told him that she could not accept his
stickup note because it was written on a Bank of America deposit slip and
that he would either have to fill out a Wells Fargo deposit slip or go back
to Bank of America. Looking somewhat defeated, the man said "OK" and left.
He was arrested a few minutes later, as he was waiting in line back at Bank
Idiot # 4 A motorist was unknowingly caught in an automated speed trap that
measured his speed using radar and photographed his car. He later received
in the mail a ticket for $40 and a photo of his car. Instead of payment, he
sent the police department a photograph of $40. Several days later, he
received a letter from the police that contained another picture, this time
of handcuffs. He immediately mailed in his $40.
Idiot # 5 Guy walked into a little corner store with a shotgun and demanded
all the cash from the cash drawer. After the cashier put the cash in a bag,
the robber saw a bottle of scotch that he wanted behind the counter on the
shelf. He told the cashier to put it in the bag as well, but he refused and
said, "Because I don't believe you are over 21."
The robber said he was, but the clerk still refused to give it to him
because he didn't believe him. At this point the robber took his driver's
license out of his wallet and gave it to the clerk. The clerk looked it
over, and agreed that the man was in fact over 21 and he put the scotch in
the bag. The robber then ran from the store with his loot. The cashier
promptly called the police and gave the name and address of the robber that
he got off the license.
They arrested the robber two hours later.
Idiot # 6 A pair of Michigan robbers entered a record shop nervously waving
revolvers. The first one shouted, "Nobody move!"
When his partner moved, the startled first bandit shot him.
Idiot # 7 Arkansas: Seems this guy wanted some beer pretty badly. He decided
that he'd just throw a cinder block through a liquor store window, grab some
booze, and run. So he lifted the cinder block and heaved it over his head at
The cinder block bounced back and hit the would-be thief on the head,
knocking him unconscious. Seems the liquor store window was made of Plexi-Glass.
The whole event was caught on videotape.
Idiot # 8 Ann Arbor: The Ann Arbor News crime column reported that a man
walked into a Burger King in Ypsilanti, Michigan at 12:50 am flashed a gun
and demanded cash.
The clerk turned him down because he said the couldn't open the cash
register without a food order. When the man ordered onion rings, the clerk
said they weren't available for breakfast. The man, frustrated, walked away.

The Brass Rat
A man walked into a curio store and was shopping around. After awhile, he
chose a brass rat and brought it up to the counter. The proprietor said,
that will be $10 for the brass rat and $1,000 for the story behind it. The
man said, "Thanks, but I'll just pay the $10 and pass on the story."
He purchased the brass rat and left the store. As he was walking down the
street, he started noticing all sorts of rats following him. The further he
walked--the more rats followed. He walked down to the wharf and still more
rats came out and followed him. So, he decided to walk out into the water,
which he did--and all the rats drowned.
He returned to the store shortly and when he walked in, the proprietor said,
"Ah ha! You came back to pay the $1,000 for the story, right?" "No," replied
the man, "I came back to see if you have any brass lawyers!"

A Crowbar From K-Mart
A redneck is sitting in a bar drinking minding his own business when a large
asian man goes over to him and knocks him off his chair. He then tells the
redneck, " That was a karate chop from Korea." The redneck is mad but he
gets up and goes back to drinking. All of a sudden the asian man knocks him
over again and says, " That was a judo chop from Korea." The redneck is real
mad now so he leaves and comes back an hour later. He goes over to the asian
man and knocks him off the stool knocking him out cold. He turns at the
bartender and says, " When he wakes up tell him that was a crowbar from
Billy-Bob at the Bar
Billy-Bob walks into a bar and says, "Bartender, one round for everyone, on
me!" The bartender says, "Well, seems you're in a really good mood tonight,
hm?" Billy-Bob says, "Oh, you can bet on it! I just got hired by the city to
go around and remove all the money from parking meters. I start on Monday!"
The bartender congratulates him and proceeds to pour the round.
Monday evening arrives. Billy-Bob comes back into the bar and says
Bartender, TWO rounds for everyone, on me!" The bartender says, "Well now!
If you're so happy just over having this new job, I can just imagine how
happy you'll be when you get your paycheck!" Billy-Bob looks at the

The Boy Buys a
A fifteen year-old boy came home with a Porsche and his parents began to
yell and scream,
"Where did you get that car?"
He calmly told them, "I bought it today."
"With what money?" demanded his parents.
We know what a Porsche costs.."
"Well," said the boy, "this one cost me fifteen dollars."
So the parents began to yell even louder. "Who would sell a car like that
for fifteen dollars?" they asked.
"It was the lady up the street," said the boy. Don't know her name-they just
moved in. She saw me ride past on my bike and asked me if I wanted to buy a
Porsche for fifteen dollars."
"Oh my Goodness!," moaned the mother, "she must be a child abuser. Who knows
what she will do next? John, you go right up there and see what's going on."
So the boy's father walked up the street to the house where the lady lived
and found her out in the yard calmly planting petunias. He introduced
himself as the father of the boy to whom she had sold a Porsche for fifteen
dollars and demanded to know why she did it.
"Well," she said, "this morning I got a phone call from my husband. I
thought he was on a business trip, but learned from a friend he has run off
to Hawaii with his secretary and really doesn't intend to come back. He
claimed he was stranded and asked me to sell his new Porsche and send him
the money. So I did."
What your Brain is Worth
In the hospital the relatives gathered in the waiting room, where their
family member lay gravely ill.
Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and somber.
'I'm afraid I'm the bearer of bad news,' he said as he surveyed the worried
faces. 'The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain
It's an experimental procedure, very risky but it is the only hope.
Insurance will cover the procedure, but you will have to pay for the brain
The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news. After a great
length of time, someone asked, 'Well, how much does a brain cost?'
The doctor quickly responded, '$5,000 for a male brain, and $200 for a
The moment turned awkward. Men in the room tried not to smile, avoiding eye
contact with the women, but some actually smirked.
A man unable to control his curiosity, blurted out the question everyone
wanted to ask,
'Why is the male brain so much more?'
The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and explained to the entire
group, 'It's just standard pricing procedure. We have to mark down the price
of the female brains, because they've actually been used.'
Praise Be to Allah…
An old Arabian man who lives in central USA wants to dig around the earth so
he can plant tomatoes. However, he is too old to do so, so he e-mails his
son, who studies in Paris.
Ah, I wanted to plant Tomatoes in my garden today, but I am too old and weak
to dig around the ground. If only you were here, I would be certain you
would help me.
Allah be with you,
A few hours later, he gets an e-mail back:
Please do not dig around the ground in the garden. It's where I hid...The
Allah be with you,
Your dearest son.
Only 15 minutes after the man had received his e-mail, the cops, the FBI and
the CIA came knocking at his door and started to dig around his garden. When
they didn't find anything, they left disappointed.
One hour later, the father receives another mail:
I would assume your garden has been dug around by now. It was my honor to
Allah be with you,
Your dearest son.
A married couple is driving along a highway doing a steady 40 miles per
hour. The wife is behind the wheel. Her husband suddenly looks across at her
and speaks in a clear voice. "I know we've been married for twenty years,
but I want a divorce"
The wife says nothing, keeps looking at the road ahead but slowly increases
her speed to 45 mph. The husband speaks again. "I don't want you to try and
talk me out of it," he says, "because I've been having an affair with your
best friend, and she's a far better lover than you are."
Again the wife stays quiet, but grips the steering wheel more tightly and
slowly increases the speed to 55. He pushes his luck. "I want the house," he
says insistently.. Up to 60. "I want the car, too," he continues. 65 mph.
"And," he says, "I'll have the bank accounts, all the credit cards and the
boat!" The car slowly starts veering towards a massive concrete bridge. This
makes him nervous, so he asks her, "Isn't there anything you want?"
The wife at last replies in a quiet and controlled voice. "No, I've got
everything I need," she says. "Oh, really," he inquires, "so what have you
Just before they slam into the wall at 65 mph, the wife turns to him and

If you bought $1000 worth of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be
worth $49. If you bought $1000 worth of Budweiser (the beer, not the stock)
one year ago, drank all the beer, and traded in the cans for the deposit,
you would have $80.
It is therefore financially prudent in these troubled times to drink heavily

all mankind made.'

side of the family and your mother told you about hers.'

LAPD and the Rabbit
The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD), The FBI, and the CIA are all
trying to prove that they are the best at apprehending criminals. The
President decides to give them a test. He releases a rabbit into a forest
and each of them has to catch it.
The CIA goes in. They place animal informants throughout the forest. They
question all plant and mineral witnesses. After three months of extensive
investigations they conclude that rabbits do not exist.
The FBI goes in. After two weeks with no leads they burn the forest, killing
everything in it, including the rabbit, and they make no apologies. The
rabbit had it coming.
The LAPD goes in. They come out two hours later with a badly beaten bear.
The bear is yelling: "Okay! Okay! I'm a rabbit! I'm a rabbit!"

Help Wanted - CIA Assassin
The CIA had an opening for an assassin. After all of the background checks,
interviews, and testing were done there were three finalists — two men and
one woman. For the final test, the CIA agents took one of the men to a large
metal door and handed him a gun.
“We must know that you will follow your instructions, no matter what the
circumstances. Inside this room you will find your wife sitting in a chair.
You have to kill her.” The first man said.“You can’t be serious. I could
never shoot my wife,”
The agent replies, “Then you’re not the right man for this job."
The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went
into the room. All was quiet for about five minutes. Then the agent came out
with tears in his eyes. “I tried, but I can’t kill my wife.” The agent
replies, “You don’t have what it takes. Take your wife and go home.”
Finally, it was the woman’s turn. Only she was told to kill her husband. She
took the gun and went into the room. Shots were heard, one shot after
another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the walls. After a few
minutes, all was quiet. The door opened slowly and there stood the woman.
She wiped the sweat from her brow and said, “You guys didn’t tell me the gun
was loaded with blanks. So I had to beat him to death with the chair.”

The trooper walks up to the drivers side of the car, gets out his billy club
and smacks the driver across the face. Stunned, the driver asks, ''Why did
you do that??''

window. The passenger rolls down his window and the trooper takes out his
club and smacks the passenger across the face.
''What was that for?'' asked the passenger.
''I know your kind,'' says the trooper, ''About two miles down the road you

"Well, all right. Yes, 3 times."
"Three? When were they?"
"Well, Jack, remember when you were 35 years old and you really wanted to
start the business on your own and no bank would give you a loan? Remember
how one day the bank president himself came over to the house and signed the
loan papers, no questions asked?"
"Oh, Betty, you did that for me! I respect you even more than ever, that you
would do such a thing for me!
So, when was number 2?"
"Well, Jack, remember when you had that last heart attack and you were
needing that very tricky operation, and no surgeon would touch you? Remember
how Dr. DeBakey came all the way up here, to do the surgery himself, and
then you were in good shape again?"
"I can't believe it! Betty, I love that you should do such a thing for me,
to save my life! I couldn't have a more wonderful wife. To do such a thing,

A Female Joke
A woman was sitting at a bar enjoying an after work cocktail with her
girlfriends when an exceptionally tall, handsome, extremely sexy,
middle-aged man entered. He was so striking that the woman could not take
her eyes off him.
The young-at-heart man noticed her overly attentive stare and walked
directly toward her. (As all men will.) Before she could offer her apologies
for staring so rudely, he leaned over and whispered to her, "I'll do
anything, absolutely anything, that you want me to do, no matter how kinky,
for $20.00......on one condition"'
Flabbergasted, the woman asked what the condition was. The man replied, "You
have to tell me what you want me to do in just three words."
The woman considered his proposition for a moment, and then slowly removed a
$20 bill from her purse, which she pressed into the man's hand
along with her address. She looked deeply into his eyes, and slowly and
meaningfully said...."Clean my house."

South Carolina :
A man in South Carolina had a flat tire, pulled off on the side of the

behind it. Then he got back in the car to wait. A passerby studied the scene
as he drove by and was so curious he turned around and went back. He asked
the fellow what the problem was. The man replied, 'I have a flat tire.' The

I never did understand it either.'
