Click for the 'PermaThread™: List of all joke threads'


Upon looking at some of my postings in the "religious Knockers", and "Guns-R-Us" threads I fear I have been somewhat rude to Hank, Tucker and Fayduk. If not actually rude, at least a mite sarcastic - and for that I apologise. It occurred to me that others may also at times reach that point where they feel that rational argument has become hopless in certain quarters, and just lose control momentarily. Perhaps this thread can help -or maybe it'll disappear faster than a plate of brownies.
All I ask is that we vent with humour alone! Maybe a bit of sardonic wit, or an ironic aside. Perhaps a song parody, stuff like that. Nothing personal, no name calling, just humour and irony. Something to blow off steam. Use it for any thread that has you flummoxed, ie. some "traddie" has just told you that your hero, Bob Dylan can't play guitar and chew gum at the same time! Don't get mad. Don't even get even! Come here and get funny! I personally am in the process of preparing an editorial for all those liberals entitled: "As long as the Red White and Red flies over Canada, you'll never take my guitars away!" I just drove back from a concert in Rochester and I'm too tired to write it now.(jokes take an alert mind)

P.S. I actually found about 90% of the gun threads to be interesting and damn thought provoking, and I'm glad folks feel comfortable enough around here to be so candid with such a difficult issue. So saying, I hope that's the last serious thing that gets said here

OK, I'm going to post my current favorite joke; probably no one will get it. The funniest part for me, though, was my mis-telling of it. It's a 1-liner, told to me by my older son.

The Dalai Lama goes up to a hotdog vender & says, "Make me one with everything!"

I thought that was pretty good. As I was rehearsing it in my mind to share w/ my friends, it came out, "Give me one w/ the works!" Just not quite the same, folks!

Of course! It reminds me of the one where the guy asks the genie from the lamp to make him a malted. The genie waves his hand and says: You're a malted.

I'm sorry, but I really like jokes that are simple and that you can tell to children (must be my inner child) like:

Q: What happened when all the king's horses and all the king's men couldn't put Humpty together again?

A: They took him to a shell station!

The Make Me One With Everything is on a tshirt at Northern Sun Mechandising!

Got these off the net about a year ago:

Why ask why?

Why do you need a driver's license to buy liquor when you can't drink and drive?

Why isn't phonetic spelled the way it sounds?

Why are there interstate highways in Hawaii?

Why are there flotation devices under plane seats instead of parachutes?

Why are cigarettes sold in gas stations when smoking is prohibited there?

Have you ever imagined a world with no hypothetical situations?

How does the guy who drives the snowplow get to work in the mornings?

If 7-11 is open 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, why are there locks on the doors?

If a cow laughed would milk come out her nose?

If nothing else sticks to TEFLON, how do they make TEFLON stick to the pan?

If you are in a vehicle going the speed of light, what happens when you turn on the headlights?

You know how most packages say "Open here"? What is the protocol if the package says, "Open somewhere else"?

Why is it when you're driving and looking for an address, you turn down the volume on the radio?

Why do we drive on parkways and park on driveways?

Why is it that when you transport something by car, it's called a shipment, but when you transport something by ship, it's called cargo?

You know that little indestructible black box that is used on airplanes, why can't they make the plane out of the whole substance?

Why do noses run and feet smell?

Why is brassiere singular and panties plural?

How is it that a building burns up as it burns down?

THANKS, RICK....GREAT THREAD!

The Dalai Lama hot dog joke (make me one with everything) has a second half. The Dalai Lama gives the hot dog vendor $10. The hot dog vendor hands him the hot dog, pockets the money and turns away. The Dalai Lama objects, saying, "Hot dogs are only $3. Where's my change?" The vendor replies "Change must come from within".

How about "aggie" jokes?

How many aggies does it take to eat an armadillo? Answer: three; one to eat the armadillo, one to watch the highway each direction.

Why don't they serve ice water at A&M anymore? The senior with a recipe finally graduated.

Aggie jokes are great because you don't have to pick on any specific racial or ethnic group; you can pick on them all equally because anybody can be an aggie nowadays, all you have to do is get admitted to Texas A&M university. No longer it is the student body almost exclusively white and male, and not all are in the cadet corps. In fact men and women of any race or religion can now be admitted to Texas A&M. They even let blondes into that school, and once they are aggies, they needn't be the victims of "blonde jokes." (have to be careful - I'm married to a blond!)

Cheers, BK

Guy walks up to Ranger Bob and says" I wanted to go fishing on Big Bear Lake, so I found an Indian guide in town who had a sign on his place that said Catch your Limit of Walleye Guaranteed . We went out to the middle and this guide, Ralph Runningdeer, opens his tacklebox and pulls out a stick of dynamite. He lights it off his cigar and throws it in the lake. Six seconds later the boat jumps a foot in the air and a dozen Walleye come floatin to the surface, along with 7 or 8 Bluegill, a catfish and a rubber tire." The Ranger frowns and promises he'll put an end to this.

The next day Ranger Bob dons a clever disguise, positions his assistant Ranger Bill in the bushes by the Lake with a videocamera, and charters Ralph Runningdeer to take him fishing. Sure enough, they get to the middle of the lake and Ralph opens his box to produce a stick of dynamite with a short fuse."Hold it right there,Ralph" says Ranger Bob." I am a US Forest Ranger and I have a man in the bushes filming you right now. You are under arrest." Ralph stares at the Ranger about 5 seconds, calmly lights the fuse off his cigar and hands the dynamite to Bob.

"Ranger Bob," says Ralph," do you wanna talk or fish?"

A young feller well versed in the art of real estate sales went into an office in a very rural part of the country and asked for a job. The owner of the firm told him he had no openings at the time. The fellow argued that he couldn't afford not to hire him, that he would make him a very rich man. "OK," replied the owner,"I have listed a piece of property that I have been unable to move for five years. If you can sell it within a week, you have a job for life!"

Five days went by and the young feller reappeared with a signed contract, the property, an old wooden two seater outhouse on a half acre of land had been sold!

A week went by and as the new member of the firm was driving out to see another prospective buyer he noticed two TV antennas on the outhouse he had sold last week. Curiousity got the better of him, he stopped and knocked on the door of the outhouse. Its new occupant answered the door. "Why do you have two TV antennas on this small building" The owner replied, "Oh only one of them is mine, you see I rented out the basement to another feller!"

There's a fine line between fishing and standing on the shore like an idiot.

I don't suffer from insanity; I enjoy every minute of it.

The only gracious way to accept an insult is to ignore it. If you can't ignore it, top it. If you can't top it, laugh at it. If you can't laugh at it, it's probably deserved.

He who hesitates is sometimes saved.

And since we got into a little heat between USA and England in the guns thread i include this here for comic relief. Signs actually seen in England ... ( that's if you can believe all the email you get )

Two nuns, Sister Marilyn and Sister Helen, were traveling through Europe in their car. They got to Transylvania and were stopped at a traffic light when suddenly, out of nowhere, a diminutive Dracula jumped onto the hood of their car and hissed at them, through the windshield.

"Quick, quick!" shouted Sister Marilyn, "what shall we do?" "Turn the windshield wipers on. That will get rid of the abomination," said Sister Helen.

Sister Marilyn switched them on and knocked Dracula about, but he hung on and continued hissing at the nuns.

"What shall I do now?" Sister Marilyn shouted. "Switch on the windshield washer. I filled it up with Holy Water at the Vatican," said Sister Helen.

Sister Marilyn turned on the windshield washer. Dracula screamed as the water burned his skin, but he hung on and continued hissing at the nuns.

"Now what?" shouted Sister Marilyn.

"Show him your cross," said Sister Helen.

"OK! - now you're talking," said Sister Marilyn, and she opened the window and shouted, "Get the **** off our car!"

Is There Humor After Death?

REINCARNATION

Two lovers interested in spiritualism and reincarnation vowed that if either died, the other one remaining would try to contact the partner in the other world exactly 30 days after their dying. As luck would have it, a few weeks later the young man died in a car wreck. True to her word, his sweetheart tried to contact him in the spirit world exactly 30 days later. At the seance, she called out, "John, dear John; this is Martha. Do you hear me?" A ghostly voice answered her, "Yes Martha, this is John; I can hear you." Martha tearfully asked, "Oh John, what is it like where you are?" "It's beautiful. There are azure skies, a soft breeze, sunshine most of the time." "Well what do you do all day," asked Martha. "Well Martha, we get up before sunrise, eat some good breakfast, and there's nothing but sex until noon. After lunch, we nap until two and then have more sex until about five. After dinner, we go at it again until we fall asleep about 11pm." Martha was somewhat taken aback. "Is that what heaven is really like?" "Heaven? I'm not in heaven Martha." "Well then where are you?" "I'm a jack rabbit in Arizona."

CATHOLIC MATH

Little Tommy was doing very badly in math. His parents had tried everything; tutors, flash cards, special learning centers, in short, everything they could think of. Finally in a last ditch >effort, they took Tommy down & enrolled him in the local Catholic School.

After the first day, little Tommy comes home with a very serious look on his face. He doesn't kiss his mother hello. Instead, he goes straight to his room & starts studying. Books & papers are spread out all over the room and little Tommy is hard at work. His mother is amazed. She calls him down to dinner and to her shock, the minute he is done he marches back to his room without a word and in no time he is back hitting the books as hard as before.

This goes on for sometime, day after day while the mother tries to understand what made all the difference. Finally, little Tommy brings home his report card. He quietly lays it on the table and goes up to his room and hits the books. With great trepidation, his mom looks at it and to her surprise, little Tommy got an A in math. She can no longer hold her curiosity. She goes to his room and says: "Son, what was it? Was it the nuns?" Little Tommy looks at her and shakes his head. "Well then," she replies, "was it the books, the discipline, the structure, the uniforms, WHAT was it?"

Little Tommy looks at her and says, "Well, on the first day of school, when I saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I knew they weren't fooling around."

These ideas about science were gleaned from essays, exams, and classroom discussions. Most were from 5th and 6th graders.

They illustrate Mark Twain's contention that "the most interesting information comes from children, for they tell all they know and then stop."

***************

*The law of gravity says no fair jumping up without coming back down.

*When they broke open molecules, they found they were only stuffed with atoms. But when they broke open atoms, they found them stuffed with explosions.

*Someday we may discover how to make magnets that can point in any direction.

*Genetics explain why you look like your father and if you don't why you should.

*Vacuums are nothings. We only mention them to let them know we know they're there.

*Some oxygen molecules help fires burn while others help make water, so sometimes it's brother against brother.

*To most people solutions mean finding the answers. But to chemists solutions are things that are still all mixed up.

*A monsoon is a French gentleman.

*Isotherms and isobars are even more important than their names sound.

*Water vapor gets together in a cloud. When it is big enough to be called a drop, it does.

A little boy was in a relative's wedding. As he was coming down the aisle he would take two steps, stop, and turn to the crowdalternating between bride's side and groom's side). While facing the crowd, he would put his hands up like claws and roar. So it went, step, step, ROAR, step, step, ROAR all the way down the aisle. As you can imagine, the crowd was near tears from laughing so hard by the time he reached the pulpit. The little boy, however, was getting more and more distressed from all the laughing, and was also near tears by the time he reached the pulpit. When asked what he was doing, the child sniffed and said, "I was being the Ring Bear..."

This is from Art Thieme, off his CD (from memory, so not in Art's exact words).

My dog got his tail caught in a door--cut it right off. He bled to death. His ghost came back and haunted me--wanted his tail back. So I took him to a liquor store--that's where they retail spirits.

Since we're on to dog stories I love Gamble Rogers tale of the fellow that sticks his head into the biker bar and asks who owns the Great Dane that is hitched to the lamp post outside.
A large man stands up and says it is his dog, finest animal he has ever owned, most noble of beasts.
"He's DEAD," says the other fellow, "my dog just killed him!"
"Your dog killed my Great Dane, my Lord, what kind of dog do you own?"
"A Chihuaha"
"A Chihuaha killed my large Great Dane? How did he do that?"
"I believe he got stuck in his throat!!"

Heard about the grocery store bag boy who saw this new piece of equipment being moved into the store. It was set up near the produce department. His curiousity was getting the better of him so he asked his manager what that new device was. His manager told him it was a juce making apparatus, explaining that customers would select the fresh fruit and then take it to the machine's operator to be squeezed. The ULTIMATE in fresh squeezed fruit juices! The lad said that he would like to be the one to operate this machine. His manager had to decline his request with the explanation that 'baggers cannot be juicers'

The American investment banker was at the pier of a small coastal Mexican village when a small boat with just one fisherman docked. Inside the small boat were several large yellow fin tuna. The American complimented the Mexican on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took to catch them. The Mexican replied only a little while. The American then asked why didn't he stay out longer and catch more fish. The Mexican said he had enough to support his family's immediate needs. The American then asked, "but what do you do with the rest of your time?" The Mexican fisherman said, "I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, take siesta with my wife, Maria, stroll into the village each evening where I sip wine and play guitar with my amigos; I have a full and busy life."

The American scoffed, "I am a Harvard MBA and could help you. You should spend more time fishing and with the proceeds, buy a bigger boat. With the proceeds from the bigger boat, you could buy several boats. Eventually you would have a fleet of fishing boats. Instead of selling your catch to a middleman, you would sell directly to the processor, eventually opening your own cannery. You would control the product, processing and distribution. You would need to leave this small coastal fishing village and move to Mexico City, then LA and eventually New York City, where you will run your expanding enterprise."

The Mexican fisherman asked, "But, how long will this all take?" To which the American replied, "15-20 years." "But what then?" The American laughed and said that's the best part. "When the time is right, you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public and become very rich; you would make millions." "Millions.. Then what?" The American said, "Then you would retire. Move to a small coastal fishing village where you would sleep late, fish a little, play with your kids, take a siesta with your wife, stroll to the village in the evenings where you could sip wine and play guitar with your amigos."

My all time favorite joke:

A man wants to buy a farm. A realtor takes him to a farm for sale and it is perfect in every way. The man is ready to sign the contract to purchase when a swarm of bees flies by. The purchaser says "I cannot possibly go through with the deal because I am just terrified of Bees."

The realtor replies,"These are honey bees from the next farm and will not bother you at all. However, I understand your fear and I have a proposition for you. I want you to strip naked and I will tie you to that tree out in the pasture and I will come back for you in the morning. If you have so much as one bee sting on you, I will buy the farm and deed it to you, but if there are no bee stings, we go through with the deal as written."

Well, the man sees a chance to get this beautiful farm for nothing so he screws up his courage, strips down, and lets the realtor tie him to the tree.

The next morning the realtor returns and the man is hanging against the ropes just darned near dead. The realtor shouts, "Oh my God, did the bees sting you?"

The man repllies weakly, "Never mind the bees, but doesn't that calf have a mother?"

Somehow or other, men do not seem to think this joke is as funny as women do. Hmmmmmmm. hahahahahahyukyuk.

There is one almost as bad that women don't seem to laugh at as loud. It seems this couple, husband and wife, were going to a masquerade party dressed as a bull and a cow. They were driving along the country road to their destination when the car quit. The husband pointed out that they could get where they were going by taking a shortcut across the field. So they donned the rest of their costumes and started out across the field. Halfway there they were spotted by a rather large and amorous bull, heading their way. Said wife to husband, "What are we to do?" Husband replies, "Well, dear, I'm gonna stand here and act like I'm grazing, you better brace yourself!"

Three bulls were standing munching some grass. One says" Did ya hear the news? The farmer just bought a new bull, supposed to arrive today."The biggest bull snorts "Well I've got 30 cows in the north 40, and if he thinks he's takin any of em, he's DEAD wrong."The middle sized bull spits out some grass "Well I had to fight YOU for the 10 cows I've got in the south 20, and I ain't given em up." The Littlest bull, horns just barely peekin through says " I finally got a fine pair of cows over by the barn and I MEAN to keep em!"

About this time a tractor-trailer pulls up, the farmer drops the gate, and a 2200 pound bull comes thundering down the ramp,ring in his nose and three feet of horns."You know", says the big bull, "it'd be selfish of me to horde all those cows. I guess I could let the new guy have a couple." The middle bull says "yeah, he seems like a nice guy. I'd split my herd with him seein as how they're so much trouble anyway." They turn to look at the little bull, who is snorting, pawing the ground and glaring at this massive new bull."WHAT in HELL are you DOING?" they shout. Little bull says "I just want him to know I'm a BULL!"

You know, as someone who takes a bit of flak for being whatever I am, I must say that some of you know some really perverse jokes!!! I can't remember jokes to save my ass. Sarcastic rambling is a bit more down my alley. But I gotta' say that Rick really started one here......some of you need to step up and take the "I'm Sick and Proud of It" oath. Y'all are hidin' your lights under the proverbial bushels.

But as I was taking a shower (stall's clean Alice) I got to thinkin' about "Irony" and a song I've been singin' for about thirty years. Considering my recent problems, it suddenly hit me how ironic this thing really was. Not a Talkin' Blues, but kind of a "talker" the song is by one of my favorite people, Patrick Sky. It also occurs to me that I'm a sorta' Pat Sky Juke Box......anyway, I'm sure I've changed a word or two over the years ( and specifically the price, but basically it goes like this:

Now I'm just a plain old country hick,
And I don't mean to make you sick,
But I got a few words that I'd like to say.
It's about this undertaker man
Who told me that he had a plan
To put me in the ground on Lay-A-Way.

Well it all started couple year ago
When I met this Doctor in O-hi-o
Who told me that I really had it bad.
He said, "Son, your veins is turning blue
And Emphysema is a killin' you."
And he said, at most, three months is all I had.

Now friends as you can plainly see,
That scared the HELL right outa' me
And for a month or so I really had the Blues.
Then one fine day I took a look
And sure enough in my phone book
I saw this sign that says,"Come In and Choose."

"Joe's Undertaker's"..We have Lots,
Of Coffins, Grass, and Burial Plots,
We fix faces back the way they came.
Formaldehyde and Alchohol
We'll pickle you, one and all
Black or White, to us you're all the same.

So I went in and sat right down
And pretty soon this man came 'round,
Said he'd like to take some measurements.
So I looks at him and says, "Okay"
He starts measurin' right away,
Measures up 6300 dollars and 19 cents!

Now friends, as you can plainly see,
I'm as healthy as any boy could be.
And that Doctor he just sits and wonders why.
So I look at him and I say, "Doc,"
"I know this comes as quite a shock,
But the truth is, I just can't afford to die."

I look forward to doing this one many more years as I still can't afford to die!!!!

10 SIGNS THAT YOU'VE HAD TOO MUCH OF THE 90'S!!

- You haven't played solitaire with a real deck of cards in years.

- You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3.

- You try to enter your password on the microwave.

- You now think of three espressos as "getting wasted."

- You e-mail your son in his room to tell him that dinner is ready, and he emails you back "What's for dinner?"

- Your daughter sells Girl Scout Cookies via her web site.

- You chat several times a day with a stranger from South Africa, but you haven't spoken to your next door neighbor yet this year.

- You didn't give your valentine a card this year, but you posted one for your e-mail buddies via a web page.

- Your daughter just bought a CD of all the records your college roommate used to play, called "Rocking to the Oldies"

- You check the ingredients on a can of chicken noodle soup to see if it contains Echinacea.

Enjoy.

TOP 12 THINGS NOT TO SAY TO A PATROL OFFICER

1. I can't reach my license unless you hold my beer.
(OK in Texas)

2. Sorry, Officer, I didn't realize my radar detector wasn't plugged in.

3. Aren't you the guy from the Village People?

4. Hey, you must've been doin' about 125 mph to keep up with me. Good job!

5. Are You Andy or Barney?

6. I thought you had to be in relatively good physical condition to be a police officer.

7. You're not gonna check the trunk, are you?

8. I pay your salary!

9. Gee, Officer! That's terrific. The last officer only gave me a warning, too!

10. Do you know why you pulled me over? Okay, just so one of us does.

11. I was trying to keep up with traffic. Yes, I know there are no other cars around. That's how far ahead of me they are.

12. When the Officer says "Gee Son....Your eyes look red, have you been drinking?" You probably shouldn't respond with, "Gee Officer your eyes look glazed, have you been eating doughnuts?"

Banjer, loved your supermarket joke. It reminded me of an old one that I repeat for the benefit of the few of you who haven't heard it.

A man was the human Cannonball for the circus for twenty five years. One day he goes to the circus owner and says "You have to find another job for me, I'm getting too old to be the human cannonball, my ears hurt from the bang, my bones ache from the landing, my bruises last longer. I'm willing to do anyhting else, juggle, sweep up, sell tickets anything."

The circus owner looks him straight in the eye and says "but where will find someone of your calibre?"

Sorry folks, but I love a really bad joke.

An American tourist is sightseeing in Scotland and stops into a pub to get a pint. As he sits at the bar, he sees and old man sitting there, muttering angrily to himself.

Suddenly, the old man looks at the tourist and says to him: "Ye see that stone fence out there."

The tourist replies: "Why, yes, that's a might long stone fence"

"Well" says the old one, "I built it myself, dug up the stones, and laid it out, stone by stone for a mile. And do they call me McGregor the Fence builder! Hell No!"

Taken aback by the oldtimers passionate reply,, the American say "Sorry to hear that."

"And do ye see that big barn across the field" says the old one.

"Mighty big barn" say the American.

"Aye, and I cut down the trees, planed the wood, and built it, plank by plank. And do they call me McGregor the Barn Builder! Hell No!"

"Sorry to hear that." again replies the American.

Then McGregor says "But you have sex with one sheep..."

An Irishman staggers home from the tavern late one night with a pint of good whiskey in his back pocket. As drunks will do, he stumbles and falls. When he slowly gets up again, he feels some liquid running down the back of his leg. He mutters a short prayer, "Lord, let it be blood."

He finally gets home and his wife is asleep. He goes to the bathroom to assess the damage. Sure enough the pint is OK, but as he pulls down his pants and looks in the mirror he sees several cuts on his rear that are still bleeding. He cleans himself off as best he can and gets some bandaids from the medicine cabinet. He has to use the mirror to see where to put the bandaids, but eventually he is successful at covering the damage and goes off to bed.

The next morning, his wife wakes him up much too early. Shesays, "Ah, you were drunk last night!" He pleads innocence, but she presses on. "Oh, I knew you were drunk as soon as I saw the bandaids on the bathroom mirror!"

NOI toward anyone of the Irish persuasion.

Next morning, his wife wakes him rather unfriendly like, and bellows "You've been at the pub again, haven't you??"

An older gentleman having recently moved to another part of Ireland where he was not know goes into the local pub and orders three pints of Guiness. He then takes the three pints, finds himself a table and proceeds to drink the pints after tapping them all together and giving a toast. This goes on each night therafter. The innkeeper, bursting with curiousity at this nightly ritual, finaly asks the man, "Why do you perform tis routine each evening?"

The oldtimer explains that in his previous home he and two of his mates had agreed that no matter where any of them moved that they would each drink three stouts a night in their honor. One went to Australia, one moved to Canada and this old timer had relocated here, continuing the agreed upon ritual.

Time passed and one day he came in and ordered only two stouts, taking them to his table and slowly drinking them down. The next night, the inkeeper having noticed the change in routine went to the old man's table and told him he was sorry to see that he was now only getting two pints, and commiserating with the old gentleman on the loss of one of his mates.

"Oh, you've got it all wrong," said the old timer, "all three of us are still very much alive!"

"It's just that I've given up drinking!"

The chalk mark awakens another story!!!

It seems these two fellows, not among the higher IQ set, had rented a boat to go fishing. Their day was a huge success, catching the limit on everything. As they were rowing back to shore one said to the other, "We should have marked that spot so we can find it again next time."
His partner replied, "I'm way ahead of you, I put a mark on the side of the boat!"
Came the retort, "Well that was stupid, what if we don't get the same boat next time?"

Or this one:

Two boys had inherited a very small farm on the passing of their father and they decided that they would split everything evenly. There were two horses, and it was decided that in order to identify ownership some sort of distiguishing mark should be used. The one lad said, "Let's crop the tail of one so that we can tell them apart!"
Good Idea!" Said the other.
The chore having been accomplished, the two were walking back toward the house when one turned and looked back. He said to his brother, "You know, we didn't have to crop the tail on that horse, the white one stands a whole head taller than the black one!"

Hi, This cut and paste again. I hope it works this time. annap

A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo, and when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole is maintained or even improved by the regular culling of the weakest members.

In much the same way, the human brain can operate only as fast as the slowest brain cells through which the electrical signals pass. Recent epidemiological studies have shown that while excessive intake of alcohol kills off brain cells, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. Thus, regular consumption of beer helps eliminate the weaker cells, constantly making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. The result of this in-depth study verifies and validates the causal link between all-weekend parties and job-related performance. It also explains why, after a few short years of leaving university and getting married, most professionals cannot keep up with the performance of the new graduates. Only those few that stick to the strict regimen of voracious alcoholic consumption can maintain the intellectual levels that they achieved during their university years.

So, this is a call to arms. As our country is losing its technological edge we should not shudder in our homes. Get back into the bars! Quaff that pint! Your company and country need you to be at your peak, and you shouldn't deny yourself the career that you could have.

Take life by the bottle and be all that you can be!

BEAR ADVISORY

In light of the rising frequency of human/grizzly bear conflicts, the Santee Department of Fish and Game is advising hikers, hunters, and fishermen to take extra precautions and keep alert of bears while in the field.
We advise that outdoorsmen wear noisy little bells on their clothing so as not to startle bears that aren't expecting them. We also advise outdoorsmen to carry pepper spray with them in case of an encounter with a bear. It is also a good idea to watch out for fresh signs of bear activity. Outdoorsmen should recognize the difference between black bear and grizzly bear feces.
Black bear feces is smaller and contains lots of berries and squirrel fur. Grizzly bear feces has little bells in it and smells like pepper.

Actually I saw a fer real study in which a favourite area for bears was sprayed heavily with so-called bear repellent; I think it was either pepper spray or something related. Seems it is to bear, as catnip is to cats. They stated it would probably work if aimed right in the face, but spraying it on one's body or one's children as a "repellent" would merely attract the bears, making them want to roll around on you, lap at your clothes and most likely maul you like a cat does a mouse!

THE YETI

An English explorer was taking part in an expedition to the Himalayas. Led by a grizzled local guide, they ascended one of the less frequently climbed peaks. Roughly halfway up the side of the mountain, a member of the expedition came across a set of large manlike tracks in the snow. "Yeti tracks," the sherpa said with a gruff voice as he passed them. "One thing you must know before we proceed; do not, under any circumstances, touch the yeti."

The expedition heeded his warning and continued to climb the slope. Night fell, and the explorers set up their tents. In the dead of night, the Englishman awoke to the sound of his tent entrance unzipping. Half-asleep, he looked up to see an enormous eight-foot yeti standing above him.

In fear for his life the explorer jumped up and ran out of the tent, banging into the yeti in the process. The yeti, after being touched by the explorer let out a deafening howl and began to chase the explorer down the slope.

The explorer ran away from the camp as quickly as his legs could take him, after he rounded a corner he looked behind him to see the bounding form of the yeti still chasing him.

So the explorer continued to run, reaching the bottom of the mountain in just two days, exhausted he paused to rest awhile. After just a few moments, the explorer began to hear the soft 'thud thud thud' of yeti feet on snow, he looked up the slope to see the yeti still chasing him and only moments away.

The explorer took off again, reaching a supply shack a couple of miles away, once there quickly buying a mountain bike and pedaling his way to the nearest town, some fifty miles away. The journey took him several days over the rough terrain and after his arrival he booked into a hotel to recuperate.

Two days later the man left his hotel to see about booking transport back to England. As soon as he turned around though he saw the form of the yeti on the horizon, bounding towards him at great speed. Horrified by this sight, the explorer hurriedly bought a car and drove it away from the village all the way to Delhi. Once he arrived, the man wasted no time in getting on the next plane to London.

After his arrival back in London, the man went back to his London home for a while to recover and to plan his next expedition. He had been there less than two weeks and was gazing out of a window when he saw a familiar large bounding, manlike creature running down his street; the man couldn't believe it -- somehow the yeti had followed him to England!

The man had little choice but to run away again, he used any means he could, bike, car, or on foot to try to escape the yeti, but each time he looked behind him, it was just moments before the yeti came into view.

Eventually the man made it all the way to Edinburgh and from there ran into the open Scottish countryside. He continued to run but the yeti just kept getting closer and closer, and in the end the man could run no more.

With the yeti less than a minute away from him, the man finally stopped and turned around to face the oncoming creature. With the last of his strength he stood up straight as the yeti caught up with him. The eight-foot tall yeti towered above the man, who could only stare in terror. The yeti extended his hand and poked the Englishman squarely in the chest with one long finger and in a low rumbling voice the yeti said, "Tag! You're it!"
