"Popular Karen"

My new girlfriend, Karen, got a job at a local
hardware store. "The owner doesn't want us
hanging out with our friends," she said. "If you
stop by, tell them you're my brother."

On my first visit I walked to the customer
service desk and asked the older woman
there, "Is Karen around?"

When she looked at me quizzically, I added,
"I'm her brother."

She smiled. "What a nice surprise. I'm Karen's
mother."


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

"Important Signature"

I was signing the receipt for my credit card
purchase when the clerk noticed that I had
never signed my name on the back of the
credit card. She informed me that she could
not complete the transaction unless the card
was signed.

When I asked why, she explained that it was
necessary to compare the signature on the
credit card with the signature I just signed on
the receipt.

So I signed the credit card in front of her. She
carefully compared that signature to the one
I signed on the receipt.

Luckily, they matched.

Reminded of this historical joke, which goes back to my WWii childhood, by recent rerun of episode of Foyle's War in which the Americans arrived in Hastings in 1942; & also by line quoted on current thread from some versions of Eskimo Nell. There was a range of wartime goods, govt-approved for their patriotic plain austere fitness-for-purpose, marked with a kitemark to signify 'Utility': whence ~~

Utility knickers: one Yank and they're down.

At the wedding:

The groom arrives at the altar with a big ole smile. The best man asks him why. He says, "I just had the best blow job of my life!"

The bride arrives at the altar with a similar smile. The lead bridesmaid asks her why. She says, "I just gave the last blow job of my life!"

"Change"

My daughter and I went through the McDonald's
take-out window and I gave the clerk a $5 bill.
Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her a quarter.
She said, "You gave me too much money."

I said, "Yes I know, but this way you can just give
me a dollar bill back."

She sighed and went to get the manager who
asked me to repeat my request. I did so, and he
handed me back the quarter, and said "We're sorry
but they could not do that kind of thing."

The clerk then proceeded to give me back $1 and
75 cents in change.

Do not confuse the clerks at McD's.

A driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the highway outside Washington, DC.
Nothing was moving. Suddenly, a man knocks on the window.

The driver rolls down the window and asks, "What's going on?"
"Terrorists have kidnapped Congress, and they're asking for a $100
million dollar ransom. Otherwise, they are going to douse them all in
gasoline and set them on fire. We are going from car to car, collecting
donations."
"How much is everyone giving, on average?" the driver asks.
The man replies, "Roughly a gallon ."

Conjoined twins walk into a pub in Toronto and park themselves on a bar stool. One of them says to the bartender, "Don't mind us, we're joined at the hip. I'm John, he's Jim. Two Molson Canadian beers please."

The bartender, feeling slightly awkward, tries to make polite conversation while pouring the beers. "Been on holiday, lads?"

"Off to England next month," says John. "We go to England every year, hire a car, and drive for miles, don't we, Jim?" Jim agrees.

"Ah, England!" says the bartender. "Wonderful Country...the history, the beer, the culture..."

"Nah, we don't like that British crap," says John. "Hamburgers and Molson's beer, that's us, eh, Jim? And we can't stand the English; they're so arrogant and rude, not civil and polite like us Canadians."

"So why keep going to England?" asks the bartender.

"It's the only chance Jim gets to drive."

It is a slow day in the small Colorado town of Pump Handle and streets
are deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and everybody is
living on credit.

A tourist visiting the area drives through town, stops at the motel, and
lays a $100 bill on the desk saying he wants to inspect the rooms
upstairs to pick one for the night.

As soon as he walks upstairs, the motel owner grabs the bill and runs
next door to pay his debt to the butcher.

The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to retire his debt to
the pig farmer.

The pig farmer takes the $100 and heads off to pay his bill to his
supplier, the Co-op.

The guy at the Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to the local
prostitute, who has also been facing hard times and has had to offer her
"services" on credit.

The hooker rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill with the hotel
owner.
The hotel proprietor then places the $100 back on the counter so the
traveler will not suspect anything. At that moment the traveler comes
down the stairs, states that the rooms are not satisfactory, picks up the
$100 bill and leaves.


No one produced anything. No one earned anything...
However, the whole town is now out of debt and now looks to the future
with a lot more optimism.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how a "stimulus package" works... or should work ... providing the money gets spent in our country!

"Not Home"

My husband is wonderful with our baby daughter,
but often turns to me for advice. Recently, I was
in the shower when he poked his head in to ask,
"What should I feed Lily for lunch?"

"That's up to you," I replied. "There's all kinds of
food. Why don't you pretend I'm not home?"

A few minutes later, my cell phone rang. I hopped
out of the shower to answer it and heard my husband
saying, "Yeah, hi, honey. Uh... what should I feed Lily
for lunch?"

"Quick Thinkers"

Al Capp, creator of the famous comic strip Lil
Abner, was one day invited to a university to
give a lecture to the students.

Before he could begin speaking to the large
group assembled in the auditorium, a very
unkempt-looking student at the back shouted
a vulgar word at him.

The word rung in everyone's ears.

There was a shocked silence but Capp, keeping
his composure, said: "Now that you've given us
your name, what's your question?"

--------

A professor was one day walking along a very
narrow street when he came face to face with
a rival.

The street was too narrow for two to pass.

The rival, pulling himself up to his full height, said
haughtily: "I never make way for fools!"

Smiling, the professor stepped aside and said:
"I always do."

"Tipping the Blackjack Dealer"

A blackjack dealer and a player with a thirteen
count in his hand were arguing about whether
or not it was appropriate to tip the dealer.

The player said, "When I get bad cards, it's not
the dealer's fault. Accordingly, when I get good
cards, the dealer obviously had nothing to do
with it so, why should I tip him?"

The dealer said, "When you eat out do you tip
the waiter?"

"Yes."

"Well then, he serves you food, I'm serving you
cards, so you should tip me."

"Okay, but, the waiter gives me what I ask for.
So I'll take an eight."

"At the Department Store"

While at work one day at my department store
I was working hard stocking the shelves. During
this time a lady approached and said, "Excuse
me, sir, but do you work here?"

I replied "Yes", while thinking to myself, 'Nope, it's
just that everyone that works here wants to
dress like me.'"

The lady then told me that she saw an item she
wanted boxed on the shelf but it wasn't out on
display. Next she asked me if it would be to too
much trouble for me to open the box to let her look at
it. Now I'm thinking to myself again, 'You better
buy this, after putting me through all this trouble.'

After opening the box and examining the product
closely she smiled and thanked me for letting her see
the item. I then asked her if she wanted to buy
the item and she said,

"Yes, but do you have one that hasn't been
opened!"

next to each other outside the operating room.

The first kid leans over and asks, "What are you in
here for?"

The second kid says, "I'm in here to get my tonsils
out, and I'm a little nervous."

The first kid says, "You've got nothing to worry
about. I had that done when I was four. They put
you to sleep and when you wake up they give you
lots of Jell-O and ice cream. It's a breeze!"

The second kid then asks, "What are you in for?"

The first kid says, "a circumcision."

The second kid says, "Whoa! I had that done
when I was born. Couldn't walk for a year!"

"Nursing Homes vs Jail"

Let's put the seniors in jail and the criminals in nursing
homes. This would correct a few things in one motion:

1) Seniors would have access to showers, hobbies and
walks.

2) They would receive unlimited free prescriptions,
dental and medical treatment, wheel chairs, etc.

3) They would receive money instead of having to pay
it out.

4) They would have constant video monitoring, so
they would be helped instantly if they fell or needed
assistance.

5) Bedding would be washed twice a week and all
clothing would be ironed and returned to them.

6) A guard would check on them every 20 minutes.

7) All meals and snacks would be brought to them.

8) They would have family visits in a suite built for
that purpose.

9) They would have access to a library, weight/fitness
room, spiritual counseling, a pool and education...
and free admission to in-house concerts by nationally
recognized entertainment artists.

10) Simple clothing - I.e., shoes, slippers, pjs - and
legal aid would be free, upon request.

11) There would be private, secure rooms provided
for all with an outdoor exercise yard complete with
gardens.

12) Each senior would have a P.C., T.V., phone and
radio in their room at no cost.

13) They would receive daily phone calls.

14) There would be a board of directors to hear any
complaints and the ACLU would fight for their rights
and protection.

15) The guards would have a code of conduct to be
strictly adhered to, with attorneys available, at no
charge to protect the seniors and their families from
abuse or neglect.


As for the criminals:

1) They would receive cold food.

2) They would be left alone and unsupervised.

3) They would receive showers once a week..

4) They would live in tiny rooms, for which they would
have to pay $5,000 per month.

5) They would have no hope of ever getting out.

My wife found out that our dog (a Schnauzer) could hardly hear, so she took it to the veterinarian.

The vet found that the problem was hair in the dog's ears. He cleaned both ears, and the dog could then hear fine.

The vet then proceeded to tell Andrea that, if she wanted to keep this from recurring, she should go to the store and get some "Nair" hair remover and rub it in the dog's ears once a month.
Andrea went to the store and bought some "Nair" hair remover.

At the register, the pharmacist told her, "If you're going to use this under your arms, don't use deodorant for a few days."
Andrea said, "I'm not using it under my arms."

The pharmacist said, "If you're using it on your legs, don't use body lotion for a couple of days."

Andrea replied, "I'm not using it on my legs either. If you must know, I'm using it on my Schnauzer."

The pharmacist says, "Well, stay off your bicycle for about a week."

Sarah was reading a newspaper, while her husband

his wife for a season ticket to the stadium."

"Hmmm," her husband said, not looking up from his

So, the son showed up for his date with flowers AND
chocolates. She was very flattered and pleased, and
she rewarded him with a long, passionate kiss. She
pressed her chest against him and rubbed her fingers
through his hair, hoping to give him the best kiss that
he had ever received.

After the kiss, he turned and bolted for the door.

"Oh! I am sorry," she said. "I didn't mean to scare you

"You didn't!" he replied. "I am going out to get you

The bartender hears the music coming from the box and asks what's up. The guy says. "Well, I was walking along the beach when all of a sudden a genie pops up and grants me one wish. I was pretty surprised and I had to think fast, but I managed to come up with a wish. But just when I was telling him what it was, a big wave crashed against some nearby rocks.

If we are recycling the old ones -

It was entertainment night at the Senior Citizens Center.
Claude the hypnotist explained: "I'm here to put you into a trance; I intend to hypnotize each and every member of the audience."

The excitement was almost electric as Claude withdrew a beautiful antique pocket watch from his coat. "I want you each to keep your eye on this antique watch. It's a very special watch. It's been in my family for six generations"

He began to swing the watch gently back and forth while quietly chanting, "Watch the watch, watch the watch, watch the watch. .. ."

The crowd became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth, light gleaming off its polished surface.

Hundreds of pairs eyes followed the swaying watch, until, suddenly, the chain broke, it slipped from Claud's fingers and fell to the floor, breaking into a hundred pieces. "SHIT!" he said.

It took three days to clean up the hall, and Claude was never invited back.

Texan in Australia.

A Texan farmer goes to Australia for a vacation. There he meets an Aussie farmer and gets talking. The Aussie shows off his big wheat field and the Texan says, "Oh! We have wheat fields that are at least twice as large".

Then they walk around the ranch a little, and the Aussie shows off his herd of cattle. The Texan immediately says, " We have longhorns that are at least twice as large as your cows".

The conversation has, meanwhile, almost died when the Texan sees a herd of kangaroos hopping through the field. He asked, "And what are those"?

The Aussie replies with an incredulous look, "Don't you have any grasshoppers in Texas"?

Oh and one more for the road.

Why Did the Iraqi Chicken cross the Road?

Coalition Provisional Authority:

The fact that the Iraqi chicken crossed the road affirmatively demonstrates that decision-making authority has been transferred to the chicken well in advance of the scheduled June 30th transition of power. From now on the chicken is responsible for its own decisions.

Halliburton:

We were asked to help the chicken cross the road. Given the inherent risk of road crossing and the rarity of chickens, this operation will only cost the US government $326,004.

Muqtada al-Sadr:

The chicken was a tool of the evil Coalition and will be killed.

US Army Military Police:

We were directed to prepare the chicken to cross the road. As part of these preparations, individual soldiers ran over the chicken repeatedly and then plucked the chicken. We deeply regret the occurrence of any chicken rights violations.

Peshmerga:

The chicken crossed the road, and will continue to cross the road, to show its independence and to transport the weapons it needs to defend itself. However, in future, to avoid problems, the chicken will be called a duck, and will wear a plastic bill.

1st Cav:

The chicken was not authorized to cross the road without displaying two forms of picture identification. Thus, the chicken was appropriately
detained and searched in accordance with current SOP's. We apologize for any embarrassment to the chicken. As a result of this unfortunate incident, the command has instituted a gender sensitivity training program and all future chicken searches will be conducted by female soldiers.

Al Jazeera:

The chicken was forced to cross the road multiple times at gunpoint by a large group of occupation soldiers, according to eye-witnesses. The chicken was then fired upon intentionally, in yet another example of the abuse of innocent Iraqi chickens.

Blackwater:

We cannot confirm any involvement in the chicken-road-crossing incident.

Translators:

Chicken he cross street because bad she tangle regulation. Future chicken table against my request.

U.S. Marine Corps:

The chicken is dead

Balance on Earth

Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God went missing for Six days. Eventually, Michael the Archangel found him, resting on the seventh day. He inquired of God, "Where have you been?"

God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look Michael, look what I've made." Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, "What is it?"

"It's a planet, replied God, "and I've put LIFE on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance".

"Balance?" inquired Michael, still confused.

God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth.

"For example, Northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth while Southern Europe is going to be poor; the Middle East over there will be a hot spot."

"Over there I've placed a continent of white people and over there is a continent of black people" God continued, pointing to different countries. "And over there, I call this place America.

North America will be rich and powerful and cold, while South America will be poor, and hot and friendly. And the little spot in the middle is Central America which is a Hot spot. Can you see the balance?"

"Yes" said the Archangel, impressed by Gods work, then he pointed to a smallish land mass and asked, "What's that one?"

"Ah" said God. "That's New Zealand, the most glorious place on Earth. There are beautiful mountains, rainforests, rivers, streams and an exquisite coast line. The people are good looking, intelligent and humorous and they're going to be found traveling the world. They'll be extremely sociable, hard-working and high-achieving, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace. I'm also going to give them super- human, undefeatable, strong in character citizens who will be admired and feared by all who come across them".

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then exclaimed, "You said there will be BALANCE!"

God replied wisely. "Wait until you see the buggers I'm putting next to 'em".

Australian brain transplant joke.

An Englishman wanted to become an Irishman, so he visited a doctor to find out how to go about this. "Well" said the doctor, "this is a very delicate operation and there is a lot that can go wrong. I will have to remove half your brain". "That's OK" said the Englishman. "I've always wanted to be Irish and I'm prepared to take the risk".

The operation went ahead but the Englishman woke to find a look of horror on the face of the doctor. "I'm so terribly sorry!!" the doctor said. "Instead of removing half the brain, I've taken the whole brain out". The patient replied, "No worries, mate!!"

A liberal Muslim homosexual ACLU lawyer professor and abortion doctor was teaching a class on Karl Marx, known atheist.

"Before the class begins, you must get on your knees and worship Marx and accept that he was the most highly-evolved being the world has ever known, even greater than Jesus Christ!"

At this moment, a brave, patriotic, pro-life Navy SEAL champion who had served 1500 tours of duty and understood the necessity of war and fully supported all military decision made by the United States stood up and held up a rock.

"How old is this rock, pinhead?"

The arrogant professor smirked quite Jewishly and smugly replied: "4.6 billion years, you stupid Christian."

"Wrong. It's been 6,000 years since God created it. If it was 4.6 billion years old and evolution, as you say, is real, then it should be an animal now."

The professor was visibly shaken, and dropped his chalk and copy of The Origin of Species. He stormed out of the room crying those liberal crocodile tears—the same tears liberals cry for the "poor" (who today live in such luxury that most own refrigerators) when they jealously try to claw justly earned wealth from the deserving job creators. There is no doubt that at this point our professor wished he had pulled himself up by his bootstraps and become more than a sophist liberal professor. He wished so much that he had a gun to shoot himself from embarrassment, but he himself had petitioned against them!

The students applauded and all registered Republican that day and accepted Jesus as their Lord and Savior. An eagle named "Small Government" flew into the room and perched atop the American Flag and shed a tear on the chalk. The pledge of allegiance was read several times, and God himself showed up and enacted a flat tax rate across the country.

The professor lost his tenure and was fired the next day. He died of the gay plague AIDS and was tossed into the lake of fire for all eternity.

Semper Fi.

Two Aussies are adrift in a lifeboat. While rummaging through the boat's provisions one of them finds an old lamp. He rubs the lamp and a genie suddenly appears. This genie tells them that he only grants one wish.

Without giving much thought to the matter, the lamp finder blurts out, "Turn the entire ocean into VB*!"

The genie claps his hands with a deafening crash, and immediately the entire sea turns into beer.

The genie disappears and only the gentle lapping of beer on the hull breaks the stillness as the two men considered their circumstances.

The second Aussie turns to the first and says, "Nice going mate! Now we're going to have to pee in the boat."

Stop me if you've heard this one which you probably have.

It seems this Catholic gentleman decided to marry a Protestant woman. His priest tried to dissuade him, urging him to keep his marriage within the church. But the man assured him, "Father, I have no doubt that my wife will convert to our faith."

And sure enough, a year or so after the marriage, the wife converted to Catholicism.

Well, in the course of time, this good woman died before her husband. And after a suitable period of mourning, the husband decided to marry again, and again to marry a Protestant woman.

His priest tried again to dissuade him, saying, "Well, it worked out the first time, but you can't count on it again. Couldn't you find yourself a nice Catholic girl?" But the man assured him that his new wife would convert. And sure enough, a year or so after the marriage, the wife became a Catholic.

Well, after some time had passed, this second wife passed away. And after a period of mourning, the husband went to his priest and informed that he had decided to remarry, and to marry a Protestant woman again.

This time the priest readily gave his approval, feeling sure that the marriage would again result in a new convert.

But a year passed, and then two, and then three, and the new wife remained staunchly Protestant.

So the priest asked the man, "Why are things different now? I was skeptical, but when I saw that your first two wives converted, I was sure third one also would. Why hasn't she?"

And the man replied, "Ach, Father -- I'm afraid the old converter isn't what it used to be."

"The Real Pearls"

Two older women who were rivals in a social circle
met at a party.

"My dear," said the first woman, "Are those real pearls?"

"They are," replied the second woman.

"Of course the only way I could tell would be for me
to bite them." smiled the first.

The second responded, "Yes, but for that you would
need real teeth."

"The Texan"

A Texan lands in Sydney, and is picked up by a taxi.
After requesting a tour of the city, he starts into a
tirade about the small town airport and how in Texas
they have larger runways on their ranches...

They are soon crossing the Sydney Harbor bridge, and
the man is further unimpressed - "I have a duck pond
bigger than that harbor, and an ornamental bridge to
span it that makes this look like a toy."

The Sydney-Newcastle expressway also gets his scorn,
"Is this a road, or a track?"

So when a kangaroo jumped out in front of the cab,
causing the sudden and severe application of the brakes,
the driver couldn't help himself - "Stupid grasshoppers!"

I must say, she's a fine figure of a woman: movie-star beautiful, intelligent, refined, great sense of humor, wonderfully dressed -- I don't mind telling you you're a very lucky man to have found a girl like that. By the way, how is she?"

"Well, actually," the young man replied, "we've broken up, and I'll probably never see her again."

Cassie bought each one a bag.

"Sir Arthur Conan Doyle"

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, the creator of the world-famous
detective Sherlock Holmes, was not above telling tales
about himself in which he was the laughing-stock.

In one situation, he was waiting at a taxi stand outside
the railway station in Paris. When a taxi pulled up, he
placed his suitcase in the car and took a seat next to it.

"Where can I take you, Mr. Doyle?" asked the taxi driver.

Doyle was flabbergasted. He asked the driver whether he
knew him by sight.

"No, sir, I have never seen you before.''

The puzzled Doyle asked him how he knew he was Conan
Doyle.

"This morning's paper had a story about you being on
vacation in Marseilles. This is the taxi-stand where people
who return from Marseilles always come to. Your skin color
tells me you have been on vacation. The ink-spot on your
right index finger suggests to me that you're a writer. Your
clothing is very English, and not French. And so, I deduced
that you are Sir Arthur Conan Doyle."

Doyle remarked, "This is truly amazing. You are a real-life
counterpart to my fictional creation, Sherlock Holmes."

"There is one other thing,'' the driver said.

"What is that?''

"Your name is on the front of your suitcase.''

"The Whole Weak Long"

Because of the reaction people have when they
wake up and realize it's a workday again and
the weekend is over, the first day of the week is
called Moanday.

Many people too busy to cook on the second day
of the week just open a can of beans. Hence the
day is known as Tootsday.

By the third day of the week, people are wondering
when they can ever find the time to get everything
done this week that they need to, hence the day is
known as Whensday.

Too bleary to even count properly, people think
it's only Day Three of the week on the next day,
therefore it's erroneously called Thirdsday.

On the last day of the workweek, people often go
out "for a few" after work. By the time they get home,
they're too tired to cook anything elaborate, so they
just throw a piece of meat, chicken, or fish in the
skillet. That's why the day is known as Fryday.

Saturday night all the singles let loose. There's a lot
of sexual hijinks. It's pretty obvious why the day is
called Satyrday.

And on the last day of the week--and the weekend--
people look at all the items on their to-do lists that
didn't get crossed off, groan aloud, and make
themselves promises they won't keep. Therefore
the day is called Soonday.

"Lead Foot"

My mom has a lead foot, so I was not surprised
when a state trooper pulled us over as we were
driving through Georgia. Hoping to get off with
a warning, Mom tried to appear shocked when
he walked up to the car.

"I have never been stopped like this before," she
said to the officer.

"What do they usually do, ma'am," he asked,
"shoot the tires out?"

A blonde city girl named Judy marries a Saskatchewan rancher. One morning, on his way out to check on the cows, the rancher says to Judy, "The insemination man is coming over to impregnate one of our cows today, so I drove a nail into the 2 by 4 just above where the cow's stall is in the barn. Please show him where the cow is when he gets here, OK?" The rancher leaves for the fields. After a while..., the artificial insemination man arrives and knocks on the front door. Judy takes him down to the barn.

They walk along the row of cows and when Judy sees the nail, she tells him, "This is the one right here." The man, assuming he is dealing with an airhead blonde, asks, "Tell me lady, cause I'm dying to know; how would YOU know that this is the right cow to be bred?" "That's simple," she said. "By the nail that's over its stall," she explains very confidently. Laughing rudely at her, the man says, "And what, pray tell, is the nail for?" The blonde turns to walk away and says sweetly over her shoulder, "I guess it's to hang your pants on."

"Testing of Job"

One of the mysteries of the Bible is God's
testing of Job. He took everything away
from the poor guy but his wife. For years,
scholars have debated why.

Seems to me it's actually rather simple.

After God finished the testing of Job, He
returned twice what He had taken away.
If He had taken Job's wife, that means
God would've had to give him back two wives.

Surely, not even God would have inflicted such
a severe penalty on Job after all he'd been
through.

"Grandma".

So they asked him what his dad, my son,

So then they asked what his mommy (my

During a slow period in a baseball game, the TV cameras would sometimes focus on interesting people in the stands.

One time the camera caught, and lingered on, a couple who were getting rather romantic.

The announcers, watching on their monitors, couldn't resist commenting.

One of them said, "Hey, looks like those guys have an interesting game going on."

The other ad-libbed: "Yeah, he kisses her on the strikes, and she kisses him on the balls."

Supposedly, when they realized what had been said, they both convulsed with laughter and were unable to talk for several minutes.

Cell Phone Etiquette

After a very busy day, Peggy settled down in her seat and closed her eyes as the train departed Manhattan for the 'burbs.

As the train rolled out of the station, one last passenger jumped on the train and got the last seat--right next to Peggy.

Naturally, he pulled out his cell phone and started talking in a loud voice.

"Hi sweetheart, it's Eric! ... I'm on the train — Yes, I know it's the six thirty and not the four thirty, but I had a long meeting ... No, honey, not with that floozie from the accounts office; it was with the boss. No sweetheart, you're the only one in my life-- Yes, I'm sure, cross my heart," etc., etc.

It was nauseating. And no matter how much Peggy glared at him, cleared her throat, or otherwise tried to express her disapproval over his rudeness, he completely ignored her.

Fifteen minutes later, she got an idea. She leaned in close to him and said in her most sensual, pouty voice aimed right at his phone:

"Hey, Eric, sweetie! Turn off that stupid phone and come back to bed!"

Eric doesn't use his cell phone in public any longer.

After careful consideration, he decided a pair of gloves would strike just the right note – romantic, but not too personal. Accompanied by his sweetheart's younger sister, he went to a department store, and bought a pair of white gloves. The sister purchased pair of panties for herself.

During the gift wrapping, the shop assistant mixed up the items. The sister got the gloves, and the sweetheart got the panties. Without checking the contents, the young man sealed the package, and sent it to his sweetheart along with this note.


"I chose these because I noticed that you are not in the habit of wearing any when we go out in the evening. If it had not been for your sister, I would have chosen the long ones with the buttons, but she wears the short ones which are easier to remove.

"They are a delicate shade, but the lady I bought them from showed me a pair she had been wearing for the past three weeks, and they were hardly soiled. I had her try yours on for me, and they looked really smart.

"I wish I could be there to put them on you for the first time, as no doubt other hands will come into contact with them before I have a chance to see you again. When you take them off, remember to blow into them before putting them away, as they will be a little damp from wearing.

"Just think how many times I will kiss them during the coming year. I hope you will wear them for me on Friday night.

All my love

PS – The latest style is to wear them folded down with a little fur showing.

Remember Burma-Shave Signs?

To qualify as mature you need to recognize these.

For those who never saw any of the Burma Shave signs,
here is a quick lesson in our history of the 1930's, '40's and '50's.

Before there were interstates, when everyone drove the old two-lane roads, Burma Shave signs would be posted all over the countryside in farmers' fields. They were small red signs with white letters. Five signs, about 100 feet apart, each containing one line of a four line verse......and the obligatory 5th sign advertising Burma Shave, a popular shaving cream.

Here are more of the actual signs:


DON'T STICK YOUR ELBOW

TRAINS DON'T WANDER

'CAUSE NOBODY SITS

Here are a couple of jokes I just heard.

First, from my dentist:

What does a pirate charge to pierce ears?
Aaargh, it's a buck an ear!

Second, from a co-worker:

So a guy walks into his doctor's office. He's got an asparagus hanging out of one ear, a stalk of broccoli out of the other ear, and a carrot stick hanging out of his nose.

He says, "Doctor, doctor, you've got to help me!"

The doctor replies, "Well, to start off with - you're not eating right!"

A true story recounted by someone just returned from a certain Greek island I'll be returning to soon:

Son needs to go to another island to present certificates to a College. Older brother will accompany him so they take the family car to the ferry port. Father will go down on scooter later and retrieve the car. Problem: when he gets there- they've forgotten to leave the car keys and are staying overnight. No problem: there are spare car keys in the safe back at the house. Problem: the safe key is on the same ring as the main car keys which are with the sons on the ferry...

LOVE, THROUGH THE EYES OF KIDS (Collected by Teachers from Kids, 6 to 10 years old.)

What Is The Proper Age To Get Married?

Eighty-four! Because at that age, you don't have to work anymore, and you can spend all your time loving each other in your bedroom. (Judy, 8)

Once I'm done with kindergarten, I'm going to find me a wife! (Tom, 5)

What Do Most People Do On A Date?

On the first date, they just tell each other lies, and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date. (Mike, 10)

When Is It OK To Kiss Someone?

You should never kiss a girl unless you have enough bucks to buy her a big ring and her own VCR, 'cause she'll want to have videos of the wedding. (Jim, 10)

Never kiss in front of other people. It's a big embarrassing thing if anybody sees you. But if nobody sees you, I might be willing to try it with a handsome boy, but just for a few hours. (Kally, 9)

It gives me a headache to think about that stuff. I'm just a kid. I don't need that kind of trouble. (Kenny, 7)

Concerning Why Love Happens Between Two Particular People

No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell. That's why perfume and deodorant are so popular. (Jan, 9)

I think you're supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn't supposed to be so painful. (Harlen, 8)

On What Falling In Love Is Like

Like an avalanche where you have to run for your life. (Roger, 9)

If falling in love is anything like learning how to spell, I don't want to do it. It takes too long. (Leo, 7)

On The Role Of Good Looks In Love

If you want to be loved by somebody who isn't already in your family, it doesn't hurt to be beautiful. (Jeanne, 8)

It isn't always just how you look. Look at me. I'm handsome like anything and I haven't got anybody to marry me yet. (Gary, 7)

Beauty is skin deep. But how rich you are can last a long time. (Christine, 9)

Concerning Why Lovers Often Hold Hands

They want to make sure their rings don't fall off because they paid good money for them. (Dave, 8)

Confidential Opinions About Love

I'm in favor of love as long as it doesn't happen when 'The Simpsons' is on television. (Anita, 6)

Love will find you, even if you are trying to hide from it. I have been trying to hide from it since I was five, but the girls keep finding me. (Bobby, 8)

I'm not rushing into being in love. I'm finding fourth grade hard enough. (Regina, 10)

The Personal Qualities Necessary To Be A Good Lover

One of you should know how to write a check. Because, even if you have tons of love, there is still going to be a lot of bills. (Ava, 8)

Some Surefire Ways To Make A Person Fall In Love With You

Tell them that you own a whole bunch of candy stores. (Del, 6)

Don't do things like have smelly, green sneakers. You might get attention, but attention ain't the same thing as love. (Alonzo, 9)

One way is to take the girl out to eat. Make sure it's something she likes to eat. French fries usually works for me. (Bart, 9)

How Can You Tell If Two Adults Eating Dinner At A Restaurant Are In Love?

Just see if the man picks up the check. That's how you can tell if he's in love. (John, 9)

Lovers will just be staring at each other and their food will get cold. Other people care more about the food. (Brad, 8)

It's love if they order one of those desserts that are on fire. They like to order those because it's just like how their hearts are on fire. (Christine, 9)

What Most People Are Thinking When They Say I Love You

The person is thinking: Yeah, I really do love him. But I hope he showers at least once a day. (Michelle, 9)

How A Person Learns To Kiss

You learn it right on the spot when the gooshy feelings get the best of you. (Doug, 7)

It might help to watch soap operas all day. (Carin, 9)

When Is It OK To Kiss Someone?

It's never okay to kiss a boy. They always slobber all over you. That's why I stopped doing it. (Jean, 10)

How To Make Love Endure

Spend most of your time loving instead of going to work. (Tom, 7)

Don't forget your wife's name. That will mess up the love. (Roger, 8)

"Be a good kisser. It might make your wife forget that you never take out the trash. (Randy, 8)

Child Custody Battle

Tallahassee, Fla. -- A seven-year-old boy was at the center of a Tallahassee courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him.

The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulations requiring that family unity be maintained to the degree possible.

The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried out that they also beat him.

After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer with child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Florida State Seminoles Football Team.

"Why them?" the judge asked.

"Because," the kid said, "they can't beat anyone."

Wise Observations About How Life is Lived

I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.

I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

There is great need for a sarcasm font.

How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

Was learning cursive really necessary?

Map Quest really needs to start their directions on # 5. I'm pretty sure I know how to get out of my neighborhood.

Obituaries would be a lot more interesting if they told you how the person died.

I can't remember the last time I wasn't at least kind of tired.

Bad decisions make good stories.

You never know when it will strike, but there comes a moment at work when you know that you just aren't going to do anything productive for the rest of the day.

Can we all just agree to ignore whatever comes after Blue Ray? I don't want to have to restart my collection…again.

I'm always slightly terrified when I exit out of Word and it asks me if I want to save any changes to my ten-page technical report that I swear I did not make any changes to.

I keep some people's phone numbers in my phone just so I know not to answer when they call.

I think the freezer deserves a light as well.

I disagree with Kay Jewelers. I would bet on any given Friday or Saturday night more kisses begin with Miller Lite than Kay.

I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

I have a hard time deciphering the fine line between boredom and hunger.

How many times is it appropriate to say "What?" before you just nod and smile because you still didn't hear or understand a word they said?

I love the sense of camaraderie when an entire line of cars team up to prevent a jerk from cutting in at the front. Stay strong, brothers and sisters!

Shirts get dirty. Underwear gets dirty. Pants? Pants never get dirty, and you can wear them forever.

Sometimes I'll look down at my watch three consecutive times and still not know what time it is.

Even under ideal conditions people have trouble locating their car keys in a pocket, finding their cell phone, and Pinning the Tail on the Donkey - but I'd bet everyone can find and push the snooze button from three feet away, in about 1.7 seconds, eyes closed, first time, every time.

The first testicular guard, the "Cup," was used in Hockey in 1874 and the first helmet was used in 1974. That means it only took 100 years for men to realize that their brain is also important.

Heal the past, live the present, dream the future..LIFE IS TOO SHORT!

Be Careful About Names

Everybody I know who has a dog usually calls him "Robert" or "Boy". I call mine "Sex".

When I went to the City Hall to renew his dog license, I told the clerk that I would like a license for Sex.   He said, "I'd like one of those too."   Then I said, "You don't understand. I've had Sex since I was nine years old." He said,"You must have been quite a kid!"

When I decided to get married, I told the minister that I would like to have Sex at the wedding. He told me to wait until the wedding was over. I said, "Bt Sex has played a big part in my life, and my whole world revolves around Sex." He said he didn't want to hear about my personal life and would not marry us in his church. The next day we were married at the Justice of the Peace. My family is barred from the church from then on.

When my wife and I went on our honeymoon, I took the dog with me. I told the hotel clerk that I wanted a room for my wife and me, and a special room for Sex. He said, "Every room in the place is for sex." I said, "You don't understand. Sex keeps me awake at night." The clerk said, "Me too."

One day I entered Sex in a contest, but before the competition began, the dog ran away. Another contestant asked me why I was just looking around. I told him I had planned to have Sex in the contest. He told me that I should have sold tickets. "But you don't understand, " I said, "I had hoped to have Sex on T.V." He called me a show-off.

When my wife and I separated, we went to court to fight for custody of the dog. I said, "Your Honor, I had Sex before I was married." The judge said, "Me too." Then I told him that after I was married, Sex left me. He said, "Me too."

Last night Sex ran off again. I spent hours looking around town for him. A cop came over to me and asked,"What are you doing in the alley at 4 o'clock in the morning?" I said, "I'm looking for sex."

My case comes up on Friday.

---

Well, now I've been thrown in jail, been divorced, and had more damn troubles with that dog than I ever foresaw. Why, just the other day when I went for my first session with the psychiatrist, she asked me, "What seems to be the trouble?" I replied, "Sex has been my best friend, but now it has left me forever. I couldn't live any longer so lonely," and the doctor said, "Look, Mister, you should understand that sex isn't a man's best friend, so get yourself a dog!"

The Hormone Hostage

The Hormone Hostage knows that there are days in the month when all a man has to do is open his mouth and he takes his very life into his own hands! This is a handy guide that should be as common as a driver's license in the wallet of every husband, boyfriend, or significant other!

DANGEROUS: What's for dinner?
SAFER: Can I help you with dinner?
SAFEST: Where would you like to go for dinner?
ULTRASAFE: Here, have some chocolate.

DANGEROUS: Are you wearing that?
SAFER: Gee, you look good in brown.
SAFEST: WOW! Look at you!
ULTRASAFE: Here, have some chocolate.

DANGEROUS: What are you so worked up about?
SAFER: Could we be overreacting?
SAFEST: It's my fault.
ULTRASAFE: Here, have some chocolate.

DANGEROUS: Should you be eating that?
SAFER: You know, there are a lot of apples left.
SAFEST: Can I get you a glass of wine with that?
ULTRASAFE: Here, have some chocolate.

DANGEROUS: What did you do all day?
SAFER: I hope you didn't overdo it today.
SAFEST: I've always loved you in that robe!
ULTRASAFE: Here, have some more chocolate.

So why did I write this? Well, my significant other, not happy with my mood swings, bought me a mood ring the other day so he would be able to monitor my moods. When I'm in a good mood, it turns green. When I'm in a bad mood, it leaves a big red mark on his forehead. Maybe next time he'll buy me diamonds.

A woman meets a man in a bar. They talk; they connect; they end up leaving together.. They get back to his place, And as he shows her around his apartment, she notices that one wall of his bedroom is completely filled with soft, sweet, cuddly teddy bears.

There are three shelves in the bedroom, with hundreds and hundreds of cute, cuddly teddy bears carefully placed in rows, covering the entire wall! It was obvious that he had taken quite some time to lovingly arrange them and she was immediately touched by the amount of thought he had put into organizing the display. There were small bears all along the bottom shelf, medium-sized bears covering the length of the middle shelf, and huge, enormous bears running all the way along the top shelf.

She found it strange for an obviously masculine guy to have such a large collection of Teddy Bears and she is quite impressed by his sensitive side...but doesn't mention this to him. They share a bottle of wine and continue talking and, after awhile, she finds herself thinking, 'Oh my God! Maybe, this guy Could be the one! Maybe he could be the future father of my children?' She turns to him and kisses him lightly on the lips. He responds warmly. They continue to kiss, the passion builds, and he romantically lifts her in his arms and carries her into his bedroom where they rip off each other's clothes and make hot, steamy love. She is so overwhelmed that she responds with more passion, more creativity, more heat than she has ever known.

After an intense, explosive night of raw passion with this sensitive guy, they are lying there together in the afterglow. The woman rolls over, gently strokes his chest and asks coyly, 'Well, how was it?' The guy gently smiles at her, strokes her cheek, looks deeply into her eyes, and says:

'Help yourself to any prize from the middle shelf.'

"Being at Home"

As a door-to-door salesman approached a
house on his route, he saw a small boy sitting
on the porch reading a book.

"Hi, sonny," he said. "Is your Mommy home?"

"Yes, sir," the boy replied, and went back to
reading.

The salesman rang the doorbell several times,
then resorted to knocking on the door. After
15 minutes of this with no response, he turned
to the boy.

"Hey, sonny," he said, "I thought you told me your
Mommy was home."

"I did, Mister," the boy replied, "As a matter of
fact, I see her watching you right now from
our living room window across the street."

"Night Watchman"

A man got a job as a night watchman at a factory.
There had been a lot of thefts by the workers on the
night shift, so every morning when the night shift
workers passed through his gate it was his job to
check their bags and pockets to make sure that
nothing was being stolen.

Things were going along very well the first night on the
job until a man pushing a wheelbarrow of newspaper
came through his gate. Aha, he thought, that man
thinks he can cover up what he is stealing with that
newspaper. So he removed the paper only to find
nothing. Still he felt that the man was acting strangely,
so he questioned him about the paper.

"I get a little extra money from newspapers I recycle, so
I go into the lunchroom and pick up all the ones people
have thrown away." The guard let him pass, but decided
to keep a close eye on him.

The next night it was the same, and the night after that.
Week after week it went on. The same guy would push
the wheelbarrow of newspapers past the guard's
checkpoint. The guard would always check and find
nothing.

Then one night, about a year later, the guard reported
for work only to find a message had been left for him
telling him to report to his supervisor. He walked into
the supervisor's office and before he could say a word,
the boss said, "You're fired!"

"Fired?" he asked in total surprise. "Why? What did I do?"

"It was your job to make sure that no one stole anything
from this plant and you have failed. So you're fired."

"Wait a minute, what do you mean failed. Nobody ever
stole anything from this place while I was on guard."

"Oh, really," the boss answered. "Then how do you
account for the fact that there are 365 wheelbarrows
missing?"

"Golfer"

A golfer hit his drive on the first hole 300 yards
right down the middle. When it came down,
however, it hit a sprinkler and the ball went
sideways into the woods.

He was angry, but he went into the woods and
hit a very hard 2 iron which hit a tree and
bounced back straight at him. It hit him in the
temple and killed him.

He was at the Pearly Gates and St. Peter looked
at the big book and said, "I see you were a golfer;
is that correct?"

"Yes, I was," he replied.

St Peter then said, "Do you hit the ball a long way?"

The golfer replied, "You bet. After all, I got here in 2,
didn't I?"

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


"At the Pearly Gates"

A guy arrives at the pearly gates, waiting to be
admitted. St. Peter is reading through the Big Book
to see if the guy's name is written in it. After several
minutes, St. Peter closes the book, furrows his brow,
and says, "I'm sorry, I don't see your name written in
the Book."

"How current is your copy?" he asks.

"I get a download every ten minutes," St. Peter replies.
"Why do you ask?"

"I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I was always the
stubborn type. It was not until my death was imminent
that I cried out to God, so my name probably hasn't
arrived to your copy yet."

"I'm glad to hear that," St. Peter says, "but while we're
waiting for the update to come through, can tell me
about a really good deed that you did in your life?"

The guys thinks for a moment and says, "Hmm... Well
there was this one time when I was drivin' down a
road and I saw a giant group of biker gang members
harassing this poor girl. I slowed down, and sure
enough, there they were, about twenty of 'em torturing
this poor woman.

Infuriated, I got out my car, grabbed a tire iron out of
my trunk, and walked up to the leader of the gang. He
was a huge guy; 6-foot-4, 260 pounds, with a studded
leather jacket and a chain running from his nose to his
ears. As I walked up to the leader, the bikers formed a
circle around me and told me to get lost or I'd be next.

"So I ripped the leader's chain out of his face and smashed
him over the head with the tire iron. Then I turned around
and yelled to the rest of them, "Leave this poor innocent
girl alone! You're all a bunch of sick, deranged animals!
Go home before I really teach you a lesson in PAIN!"

St. Peter, duly impressed, says "Wow! When did this
happen?"

"About three minutes ago."

"Train Whistle"

A fellow who had spent his whole life in the desert
came to visit a friend. He'd never seen a train or
the tracks they run on.

While standing in the middle of the railroad tracks
one day, he heard this whistle -- Whooee da Whoee! -
- but didn't know what it was.

Predictably, he was hit and thrown to the side of the
tracks. It was only a glancing blow, so he was
fortunate to receive some minor internal injuries,
a few broken bones, and some bruises.

After weeks in the hospital recovering, he was at his
friend's house, attending a party one evening. While
in the kitchen, he suddenly heard the tea kettle
whistling. He grabbed a baseball bat from the nearby
closet and proceeded to batter and bash the tea
kettle into an unrecognizable lump of metal.

His friend, hearing the ruckus, rushed into the kitchen,
saw what had happened, and asked, "Why'd you ruin my
good tea kettle?"

The desert man replied, "Man, you gotta kill these
things when they're small!"

FINALLY,SOMEONE HAS CLEARED THIS UP.

For centuries, Hindu women have worn a dot on their foreheads.

Most of us have naively thought this was connected with tradition or religion, but the Indian embassy in Ottawa has recently revealed the true story.

When a Hindu woman gets married, she brings a dowry into the union.

On her wedding night, the husband scratches off the dot to see whether he has won a corner shop, a petrol station, a curry house, a taxi cab, or an old peoples home in the UK.

If nothing is there, he must remain in India to answer telephones and provide us with BT technical advice.

Darwin Strikes Again

Police responding to a house burglary in Tulsa, Okla., were given a description of the suspect and shown which way he ran. They quickly spotted Edward Jerome McBride, 37, and watched as he dove into the Arkansas River. they began ordering the suspect to get out of the river, but the suspect continued carrying the bag [of loot] and swimming farther from shore," a police spokesman said. Then McBride started calling for help. Two officers jumped in to try to rescue him, but they were too late — he drowned. McBride couldn't swim very well because the duffel bag he was dragging weighed 55 pounds. Even though he dropped it before going under, he had "a significant amount" of jewelry stuffed into his cargo pants pockets dragging him down. (Tulsa World) . . .

Just another crook overwhelmed by weight of the evidence.

Dog in the Train Seat

The train was quite crowded, so a U.S. Marine walked the entire length looking for a seat, having finally been allowed to go home after his fourth long tour in Afghanistan. Unfortunately, the only seat left was taken by the poodle of a well dressed, middle-aged, French woman. The war-weary Marine asked, "Ma'am, may I have that seat?"

The French woman just sniffed and said to no one in particular, "Americans are so rude. My little Fifi is using that seat!"

The Marine walked the entire train again, but the only seat left was under that dog.

"Please, ma'am. May I sit down? I'm very tired."

She snorted, "Not only are you Americans rude, you are also arrogant!"

This time the Marine didn't say a word. He just picked up the little dog, tossed it out the train window, and sat down.

"Someone must defend my honor!" the woman shrieked. "This American should be put in his place!"

"Sir," an English gentleman sitting nearby spoke up, much to the relief of the woman. "You Americans often seem to have a penchant for doing the wrong thing. You hold the fork in the wrong hand. You drive your cars on the wrong side of the road. And now, sir, you seem to have thrown the wrong bitch out of the window."

From the Daily News comes this story of a Leicester couple.......... who drove their car to ASDA (WalMart to US people), only to have their car break down in the car park.


The man told his wife to carry on with the shopping while he fixed the car.


The wife returned later to see a small group of people near the car. On closer inspection, she saw a pair of hairy legs protruding from under the chassis. Unfortunately, although the man was in shorts, his lack of underpants turned his private parts into glaringly public ones..


Unable to stand the embarrassment, she dutifully stepped forward,quickly put her hand UP his shorts, and tucked everything back into place.


On regaining her feet, she looked across the bonnet and found herself staring at her husband who was standing idly by watching.

FIFTY SHEDS OF GREY



We tried various positions - round the back, on the side, up against a wall... But in the end we came to the conclusion the bottom of the garden was the only place for a good shed. 

She stood before me, trembling in my shed. "I'm yours for the night," she gasped, "You can do whatever you want with me." So I took her to McDonald's. 



She knelt before me on the shed floor and tugged gently at first, then harder until finally it came. I moaned with pleasure. Now for the other boot. 

Ever since she read THAT book, I've had to buy all kinds of ropes, chains and shackles. She still manages to get into the shed, though.

 
"Put on this rubber suit and mask," I instructed, calmly. "Mmmm, kinky!" she purred. "Yes," I said, "You can't be too careful with all that asbestos in the shed roof." 

"I'm a very naughty girl," she said, biting her lip. "I need to be punished." So I invited my mum to stay for the weekend. 

"Harder!" she cried, gripping the workbench tightly. "Harder!" "Okay," I said. "What's the gross national product of Nicaragua?" 

I lay back exhausted, gazing happily out of the shed window. Despite my concerns about my inexperience, my rhubarb had come up a treat. 

"Are you sure you can take the pain?" she demanded, brandishing stilettos. "I think so," I gulped. "Here we go, then," she said, and showed me the receipt. 

"Hurt me!" she begged, raising her skirt as she bent over my workbench. "Very well," I replied. "You've got fat ankles and no dress sense." 

"Are you sure you want this?" I asked. "When I'm done, you won't be able to sit down for weeks." She nodded."Okay," I said, putting the three-piece suite on eBay. 

"Punish me!" she cried. "Make me suffer like only a real man can!" "Very well," I replied, leaving the loo seat up.

Triplet Honeymoons

A mother had triplet daughters and, sure enough, they all got married the same day. On their wedding night, mom tells each one to write back about their married life. To avoid possible embarrassment to their new husbands by openly discussing their love lives, the mother and daughters agree to use newspaper advertisements as a "code" to let the mother know how their love lives are going.

Two days later the letters start to arrive from the various honeymoon destination spots.

The first one has the simple message: "Maxwell House Coffee". The mother gets the newspaper and checked the Maxwell House advertisement, and it says, "Satisfaction to the last drop." Mother is very happy.

The next day she gets the second letter. It reads: "Rothman's Mattresses". So the mother looks at the Rothman's Mattresses ad and it's headlined, "Full Size, King Size". And the mother is happy.

But she waits and waits for the third letter. It finally arrives after three weeks and has the message: "British Airways". Mother is at first perplexed, and when she finally finds the British Airways ad she fainted. The ad read:

"Three times a day, seven days a week, both ways."

The biker pulled over and said, 'Build a bridge to Prince Edward Island so I can ride over anytime I want.'

                God replied, 'Your request is materialistic; think of the enormous challenges for that kind of undertaking; the supports required reaching the bottom of the Atlantic and the concrete and steel it would take! I can do it, but it is hard for me to justify your desire for worldly things. Take a little more time and think of something that could possibly help mankind.'

                The biker thought about it for a long time. Finally, he said, 'God, I wish that I, and all men, could understand women; I want to know how she feels inside, what she's thinking when she gives me the silent treatment, why she cries, what she means when she says nothing's wrong, why she snaps and complains when I try to help, and how I can make a woman truly happy.

The Night Before Christmas -- for the Politically Correct

'Twas the night before Christmas and Santa's a wreck...
How to live in a world that's politically correct?
His workers no longer would answer to "Elves",
"Vertically Challenged" they were calling themselves.

The labor conditions at the North Pole,
Were alleged by the union to stifle the soul.
Four reindeer had vanished, with nary a clue,
Except the graffiti from "Wildlife Rescue".

And Equal Employment had made it quite clear,
That Santa had better use more than reindeer.
So Dancer and Donner, Comet and Cupid,
Were replaced with four pigs -- and you know that looked stupid!

The runners had been removed from his sleigh;
The ruts were termed dangerous folks at OSHA.
And people had started to call for the cops,
When they heard sled noises on their roof-tops.

Second-hand smoke from his pipe had his workers quite frightened.
His fur trimmed red suit was called "Unenlightened."
And to show you the strangeness of life's ebbs and flows,
Rudolf was suing for unauthorized use of his nose.

He went on Geraldo, in front of the nation,
Demanding millions in overdue compensation.
And as for the gifts, why, he'd ne'er had a notion
That making a choice could cause so much commotion.

Nothing of leather, nothing of fur,
Which meant nothing for him. And nothing for her.
Nothing that might be construed to pollute.
Nothing to aim. Nothing to shoot.

Nothing that clamored or made lots of noise.
Nothing for just girls, or just for the boys.
Nothing that claimed to be gender-specific.
Nothing that's warlike or non-pacifistic.

No candy or sweets -- they were bad for the tooth.
Nothing that seemed to embellish a truth.
And fairy tales, while not yet forbidden,
Were like Ken and his boyfriend (better off hidden).

For they raised the hackles of those psychological,
Who claimed the only good gift was one ecological.
No baseball, no football -- someone could get hurt!
Besides, playing sports exposed kids to dirt.

Dolls were said to be sexist, and should be passé;
And Nintendo would rot your entire brain away.
So Santa just stood there, disheveled, perplexed;
He just could not figure out what to do next.

He tried to be merry, he tried to be gay,
(But you've got to be careful with that word these days.)
His sack was quite empty, limp to the ground;
Nothing fully acceptable was to be found.

Something special was needed, a gift that he might,
Give to all without angering the left or the right.
A gift that would satisfy, with no indecision,
Each group of people, every religion;

Every ethnicity, and every hue,
Everyone, everywhere, perhaps even you.
So here is that gift, it's price beyond worth:
"May you and your loved ones enjoy peace on this Earth."

As you well know, some of us have had brushes with the authorities on our way home from an occasional social evening over the years.

A couple of nights ago, I was out with friends and had a couple of cocktails and some rather nice red wine.

Knowing full well I may have been slightly over the limit, I did something I've never done before: I took a cab home.

Sure enough, I passed a police road block but, since it was a cab, they waved it through.

I arrived home safely without incident, which was a real surprise because I'd never driven a cab before and am not sure where I got it or what to do with it now that it's in my garage.

It is always a good thing to be careful going home from events during the holidays when imbibing a bit more than usual. I was at a party the other night and when I started home, I knew I needed to be extra careful. I took it slow & easy, and made decent progress and would have been fine... but just as I rounded the last corner, someone stepped on my fingers!

The Night Before Christmas -- for General Aviators

Twas the night before Christmas, and out on the ramp,
Not an airplane was stirring, not even a Champ.
The aircraft were fastened to tiedowns with care,
In hopes that come morning, they all would be there.

The fuel trucks were nestled, all snug in their spots,
With gusts from two-forty at 39 knots.
I slumped at the fuel desk, now finally caught up,
And settled down comfortably, resting my butt.

When the radio lit up with noise and with chatter,
I turned up the scanner to see what was the matter.
A voice clearly heard over static and snow,
Called for clearance to land at the airport below.

He barked his transmission so lively and quick,
I'd have sworn that the call sign he used was "St. Nick".
I ran to the panel to turn up the lights,
The better to welcome this magical flight.

He called his position, no room for denial,
"St. Nicholas One, turnin' left onto final."
And what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a Rutan-built sleigh, with eight Rotax Reindeer!

With vectors to final, down the glideslope he came,
As he passed all fixes, he called them by name:
"Now Ringo! Now Tolga! Now Trini and Bacun!
On Comet! On Cupid!" What pills was he takin'?

While controllers were sittin', and scratchin' their head,
They phoned to my office, and I heard it with dread,
The message they left was both urgent and dour:
"When Santa pulls in, have him please call the tower."

He landed like silk, with the sled runners sparking,
Then I heard "Left at Charlie," and "Taxi to parking."
He slowed to a taxi, turned off of three-oh
And stopped on the ramp with a "Ho, ho-ho-ho..."

He stepped out of the sleigh, but before he could talk,
I ran out to meet him with my best set of chocks.
His red helmet and goggles were covered with frost
And his beard was all blackened from Reindeer exhaust.

His breath smelled like peppermint, gone slightly stale,
And he puffed on a pipe, but he didn't inhale.
His cheeks were all rosy and jiggled like jelly,
His boots were as black as a cropduster's belly.

He was chubby and plump, in his suit of bright red,
And he asked me to "fill it, with hundred low-lead."
He came dashing in from the snow-covered pump,
I knew he was anxious for drainin' the sump.

I spoke not a word, but went straight to my work,
And I filled up the sleigh, but I spilled like a jerk.
He came out of the restroom, and sighed in relief,
Then he picked up a phone for a Flight Service brief.

And I thought as he silently scribed in his log,
These reindeer could land in an eighth-mile fog.
He completed his pre-flight, from the front to the rear,
Then he put on his headset, and I heard him yell, "Clear!"

And laying a finger on his push-to-talk,
He called up the tower for clearance and squawk.
"Take taxiway Charlie, the southbound direction,
Turn right three-two-zero at pilot's discretion"

He sped down the runway, the best of the best,
"Your traffic's a Grumman, inbound from the west."
Then I heard him proclaim, as he climbed thru the night,
"Merry Christmas to all! I have traffic in sight."

What did the wise men say to Jesus?
"These are for Christmas and your birthday both."
