A woman came home, screeching her car into the driveway, and ran into
the house. She slammed the door and shouted at the top of her lungs,

NEW WORLD SURVEY
Last month a world-wide survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was :- "Would you please give your honest opinion about solutions to the Food Shortage in the rest of the world ?"
The survey was a huge failure because of the following:
* In Eastern Europe they didn't know what "honest" meant.
* In Western Europe they didn't know what "shortage" meant.
* In Africa they didn't know what "food" meant.
* In China they didn't know what "opinion" meant.
* In the Middle East they didn't know what "solution" meant.
* In South America they didn't know what "please" meant.
* In the US they didn't know what "the rest of the world" meant.
A man was driving when a traffic camera flashed. He thought his picture was taken for exceeding the speed limit, even though he knew he was not speeding.
Just to be sure, he went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly, but again the camera flashed. He thought this was quite funny, so he slowed down even further as he drove past the area, but the traffic camera flashed yet again.
He tried a fourth time with the same result. The fifth time he was laughing when the camera flashed as he rolled past at a snail's pace.
Two weeks later, he got five traffic citations in the mail for driving without a seat belt on.
THINKING ON YOUR FEET.
A man walked into the produce section of his local supermarket, and asked to buy half a head of lettuce. The young boy working in that department told him that they only sold whole heads of lettuce. The man was insistent that the boy asked his manager about the matter.
Walking into the back room, the boy said to the manager, "Some old bastard wants to buy half a head of lettuce"
As he finished his sentence, he turned to find the man standing right behind him, so he quickly added, "and this gentleman kindly offered to buy the other half." The manager approved the deal, and the man went on his way.
Later the manager said to the boy, "I was impressed with the way you got yourself out of that situation earlier. We like people who think on their feet here. Where are you from son ?"
"New Zealand, sir," the boy replied.
"Well, why did you leave New Zealand ?" the manager asked.
The boy said, "Sir, there's nothing but whores and rugby players there"
"Really," replied the manager ? "My wife is from New Zealand !"
"Really" replied the boy. "Who'd she play for ?"
RED LIGHT RUNNER
Two elderly women were out driving in a large car. Both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along, they came to an Intersection.
The traffic light was red but they just went on through. Ruth, in the passenger seat, thought to herself, "I must be losing it, I could have sworn we just went through a red light."
After a few more minutes they came to another intersection. The traffic light was red and, again, they went right through. This time, Ruth was almost sure that the light had been red, but was also concerned that she might be seeing things.
She was getting nervous and decided to pay closer attention. At the next intersection, sure enough, the traffic light was definitely red, and they drove right through it.
Mildred turned to her and said : "OH HELL ! AM I DRIVING ?"
A little boy was doing his maths homework. He said to himself out loud –
"Two plus five, that son of a bitch is seven." "Three plus six, that son of a bitch is nine."
His mother heard what he was saying and gasped, "What are you doing ?"
The little boy answered, "I'm doing my maths homework, Mum."
"And this is how your teacher taught you to do it ?" the mother asked.
"Yes," he said. Infuriated, the mother asked the teacher the next day, "What are you teaching my son in maths ?"
The teacher replied, "Right now, we are learning addition."
The mother asked, "And are you teaching them to say two plus two, that son of a bitch is four ?"
After the teacher stopped laughing, she answered, "What I taught them was:-‘Two plus Two,’ THE SUM OF WHICH is Four.”
FARMER’S HORSE RIDING ACCIDENT.
A Farmer was riding his horse along a winding country road
accompanied by his dog, when a car came hurtling round a bend
and knocked the horse over.
The driver stopped to see if he could provide any assistance, and rang the police on his mobile ‘phone.
They soon arrived and a policeman looked at the horse which was in terrible pain as it had broken both front legs, so he pulled out his revolver and shot the horse. The horse had fallen on the dog, which was also in terrible pain, so he shot the dog as well.
The policeman, revolver still in hand, then went over to the farmer who was lying in the road, and asked "How are you?".
The farmer replied "I’ve never felt better in all my life!”
A guy walks into a library one day and asks the librarian for a book on suicide. She sent him to the end of the aisle, and he returned and said to the librarian that there were only two books there.
She replied :“Well I can’t help it if the silly buggers don’t return them.”
Every day, a male co-worker walks up very close to a lady at the coffee machine, inhales a big breath of air, and tells her that her hair smells nice.
After a week of this, she can't stand it anymore, takes her complaint to a supervisor in the personnel department and asks to file a sexual harassment grievance against him.
The Human Resources supervisor is puzzled and asks: “Who is he, and what's sexually threatening about a co-worker telling you your hair smells nice ?
The woman replies, “It's Keith, the midget.”
A store that sells new husbands has just opened in New York City, where a
woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is
a description of how the store operates.
You may visit the store ONLY ONCE ! There are six floors and the attributes of the men increase as the shopper ascends the flights. There is, however, a catch : You may choose any man from a particular floor, or you may choose to go up a floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building !
So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband.
On the first floor the sign on the door reads: Floor 1 - These men have jobs.
The second floor sign reads: Floor 2 - These men have jobs and love kids.
The third floor sign reads: Floor 3 - These men have jobs, love kids, and are extremely good looking. "Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.
She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads: Floor 4 - These men have jobs, love kids, are drop-dead gorgeous and help with the housework. "Oh, mercy me !" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it !”
Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads: . Floor 5 - These men have jobs, love kids, are drop-dead gorgeous, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak.
She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the sign reads: Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.
A New Wives store opened across the street.
Floor 1 - The first floor has wives that love sex.
Floor 2 - Has wives that love sex and have money.
The third to sixth floors have never been visited....
A couple go for a meal at a Chinese restaurant and order the 'Chicken
Surprise'. The waiter brings the meal, served in a lidded cast iron pot.
Just as the wife is about to serve herself, the lid of the pot rises slightly and she briefly sees two beady little eyes looking around before the lid slams back down.
”Good grief, did you see that ?” she asks her husband.
He hasn't, so she asks him to look in the pot. He reaches for it and again the lid rises, and he sees two little eyes looking around before it slams down. Rather perturbed, he calls the waiter over, explains what is happening, and demands an explanation.
”Please sir,” says the waiter, “what you order ?”
The husband replies, “Chicken Surprise.”
”Ah ! So sorry,” says the waiter, “I brought you Peeking Duck !”
A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo.
And when the heard 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 group keeps improving by the regular killing
of the weakest members.
In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine.
And that is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.
WRIGLEY’S CHEWING GUM
An Australian man was having a coffee and croissants with butter and jam in a cafe when an American tourist, chewing gum, sat down next to him. The Australian politely ignored the American, who, nevertheless started up a conversation.
The American snapped his gum and said, “You Australian folk eat the whole bread ?”
The Australian frowned, annoyed with being bothered during his breakfast, and replied, “Of course.”
The American blew a huge bubble. “We don't. In the States, we only eat what's inside. The crusts we collect in a container, recycle them, transform them into croissants and sell them to Australia.”
The American had a smirk on his face. The Australian listened in silence.
The American persisted, “D'ya eat jam with your bread ?”
Sighing, the Australian replied, “Of course.”
Cracking his gum between his teeth, the American said, “We don't. In the States, we eat fresh fruit for breakfast, then we take all the peels, seeds and the leftovers, recycle them, transform them into jam and sell it to Australia.”
The Australian then asked, “Do you have sex in the States ?”
The American smiled and said “Why of course we do.”
The Australian leaned closer to him and asked, “And what do you do with the condoms once you've used them ?”
“We throw them away, of course.”
Now it was the Australians turn to smile. “We don't. In Australia, we put them in a container, recycle them, melt them down into chewing gum and sell it to the United States. Why do you think it's called Wrigley's ?”
A Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper has cheated him out of ten million bucks.
His bookkeeper is deaf and that was the reason he got the job in the first place.
It was assumed that a deaf bookkeeper would not hear anything that he might have to testify about in court.
When the Godfather goes to confront the bookkeeper about his missing $10 million, he brings along his attorney, who knows sign language.
The Godfather tells the lawyer, "Ask him where the 10 million bucks he embezzled from me, is."
The attorney, using sign language, asks the bookkeeper where the money is.
The bookkeeper signs back: "I don't know what you are talking about."
The attorney tells the Godfather: "He says he doesn't know what you're talking about."
The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to the bookkeeper's temple and says, "Ask him again !"
The attorney signs to the bookkeeper: "He'll kill you if you don't tell him !"
The bookkeeper signs back: "OK ! You win ! The money is in a brown briefcase, buried behind the shed in my cousin Enzo's backyard in Queens !"
The Godfather asks the attorney: "Well, what'd he say ?"
The attorney replies: "He says you don't have the guts to pull the trigger."
Don't you just love lawyers ?
A LAWYER AND A SENIOR CITIZEN
A lawyer and a senior citizen are sitting next to each other on a long
flight. The lawyer is thinking that seniors are so dumb that he could
get one over on them easy...So the lawyer asks if the senior would
like to play a fun game.
The senior is tired and just wants to take a nap, so he politely declines and tries to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists, and says that the game is a lot of fun. I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me only $5. You ask me one, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $500, he says. This catches the senior's attention and to keep the lawyer quiet, he agrees to play the game.
The lawyer asks the first question. 'What's the distance from The Earth to the Moon ?' The senior doesn't say a word, but reaches into his pocket, pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer.
Now, it's the senior's turn. He asks the lawyer, 'What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four ?' The lawyer uses his laptop and searches all references he could find on the Net. He sends e-mails to all the smart friends he knows, all to no avail. After one hour of searching, he finally gives up. He wakes up the senior and hands him $500. The senior pockets the $500 and goes right back to sleep.
The lawyer is going nuts not knowing the answer. He wakes the senior up and asks, 'Well, so what goes up a hill with three legs and comes down with four ?'
The senior reaches in his pocket, hands the lawyer $5 and goes back to sleep.
It's late fall and the Indians on a remote reservation in South Dakota asked their new chief if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild.
Since he was a chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets. When he looked at the sky, he couldn't tell what the winter was going to be like.
Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he told his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect firewood to be prepared.
But, being a practical leader, after several days, he got an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and asked, “Is the coming winter going to be cold ?” ”It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold,” the meteorologist at the weather service responded.
So the chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more firewood in order to be prepared
A week later, he called the National Weather Service again.
“Does it still look like it is going to be a very cold winter ?”
”Yes,” the man at National Weather Service again replied, “it's going to be a very cold winter.”
The chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they could find.
Two weeks later, the chief called the National Weather Service again. “Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold ?”
”Absolutely,” the man replied. “It's looking more and more like it’s going to be one of the coldest winters we've ever seen.”
”How can you be so sure ?” the chief asked. The weatherman replied, “The Indians are collecting firewood like crazy.”
A husband walks into Victoria's Secret Underwear Shop to purchase a sheer negligee for his wife.
He is shown several possibilities that range from $250 to $500 in price.
The more sheer, the higher the price.
Naturally, he opts for the sheerest item – pays the $500 and takes it home.
He presents it to his wife and asks her to go upstairs, put it on, and model it for him. Upstairs, the wife thinks, 'I have an idea. It's so sheer that it might as well be nothing. I won't put it on, but I'll do the modeling naked, return it tomorrow, and keep the $500 refund for myself.'
So she appears naked on the balcony and strikes a pose. The husband says, “Good Grief ! You'd think for $500, they'd at least iron it!”
He never heard the shot. Funeral is on Friday at noon. Closed coffin.
Grandma and Grandpa were watching a Healing Program on TV. The Evangelist called to all who wanted to be healed, to put one hand on the TV and the other on the body part they wanted healed.
Grandma hobbled to the TV and put one hand on the TV set and the other on her arthritic hip.
Grandpa hobbled to the TV and put one hand on the TV set and the other on his crotch.
Grandma looked at him with disgust. "You just don't get it, do you. The purpose of this program is to ‘heal the sick’, not ‘raise the dead!’"
In Pharmacology, all drugs have two names, a trade name and generic name. For example, the trade name of Tylenol also has a generic name of Acetaminophen. Aleve is also called Naproxen. Amoxil is also call Amoxicillin and Advil is also called Ibuprofen.
The FDA has been looking for a generic name for Viagra. After careful consideration by a team of government experts, it recently announced that it has settled on the generic name of Mycoxafloppin. Also considered were Mycoxafailin, Mydixadrupin, Mydixarizin, Dixafix, and of course, Ibepokin.
Pfizer Corp. announced today that Viagra will soon be available in liquid form, and will be marketed by Pepsi Cola as a power beverage suitable for use as a mixer. It will now be possible for a man to literally pour himself a stiff one.
Thought for the day: There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.

In a crowded city at a busy bus stop, a beautiful young woman
wearing a tight mini skirt was waiting for a bus.
As the bus stopped and it was her turn to get on, she became aware
that her skirt was too tight to allow her leg to come up to the height
of the first step of the bus.
Slightly embarrassed and with a quick smile to the bus driver, she reached behind her to unzip her skirt a little, thinking that this would give her enough slack to raise her leg. She tried to take the step, only to discover that she couldn't. So, a little more embarrassed, she once again reached behind her to unzip her skirt a little more, and for the second time attempted the step. Once again, much to her chagrin, she could not raise her leg. With a little smile to the driver, she again reached behind to unzip a little more and again, she was still unable to take the step.
About this time, a large Texan who was standing behind her picked her up easily by the waist and placed her gently on the step of the bus. She went ballistic and turned to the would-be Samaritan and yelled, "How dare you touch my body! I don't even know who you are!" The Texan smiled and drawled, "Well, ma'am, normally I would agree with you, but after you unzipped my fly three times, I kinda figured we was friends.
Two brooms were hanging in the closet and after a while they got to know each other so well, they decided to get married. One broom was, of course, the bride-broom, the other the groom-broom.
The bride-broom looked very beautiful in her white dress. The groom-broom was handsome and suave in his tuxedo. The wedding was lovely.
After the wedding, at the wedding dinner, the bride-broom leaned over and said to the groom-broom, "I think I'm going to have a little dust broom !”
“Impossible” said the groom broom, “WE HAVEN’T EVEN SWEPT TOGETHER YET !”
The teacher said to young Johnny in school, "If there were three birds sitting on a wall, and the farmer shot one of them, how many would be left ?"
"Well," said Johnny, "there would be none left because the sound of the farmer's gun would have frightened the others away."
"That's not the answer I was looking for, as we're doing subtraction today," said the teacher, "but I like the way you're thinking !"
"I have a question for you Miss," said Johnny, the next day. "If three women were walking down the road, one licking an ice lolly, one sucking an ice lolly and one biting an ice lolly, which of the three was the married woman ?"
"I think it would be the one sucking the ice lolly" said the teacher.
"You would be wrong Miss" said Johnny. "It's the one with the wedding ring on her finger, but I like the way you're thinking. ”
Saturday morning I got up early, dressed quietly, made my lunch, grabbed the dog, slipped quietly into the garage to hook the boat up to the truck, and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour. The wind was blowing 50 mph, so I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad throughout the day.
I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed. There I cuddled up to my wife's back, now with a different anticipation, and whispered, “The weather out there is terrible.”
My loving wife of 20 years replied, “Can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that.”
I still don't know to this day if she was joking, but I've stopped fishing.
One afternoon a lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two
men along the roadside eating grass.
Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop & he got out to investigate.
He asked one man, "Why are you eating grass ?"
"We don't have any money for food," the poor man replied. "We have to eat grass."
"Well, then, you can come with me to my house and I'll feed you," the lawyer said.
"But sir, I have a wife & two children with me. They are over there, under that tree."
"Bring them along," the lawyer replied. Turning to the other poor man he stated, "You come with us, also."
The second man, in a pitiful voice, then said, "But sir, I also have a wife and SIX children with me !"
"Bring them all, as well," the lawyer answered
They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even for a car as large as the limousine was. Once underway, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer & said, "Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you.”
The lawyer replied, “ You'll really love my place. The grass is almost a foot high."
THE MECHANIC AND THE CARDIOLOGIST
A mechanic was removing a cylinder-head from the motor of a Harley Motorcycle when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop.
The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come take a look at his bike when the mechanic shouted across the garage, “Hey Doc, want to take a look at this ?”
The cardiologist, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic was working on the motorcycle. The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, “So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take out the valves, repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when I'm finished, it works just like new. So how come I make $39,675 a year and you get the really big bucks when you and I are doing basically the same work ?”
The cardiologist paused, smiled, leaned over, and whispered to the mechanic, "Try doing it with the engine running."
A man is dining in a fancy restaurant and there is a gorgeous redhead sitting at the next table. He has been checking her out since he sat down, but lacks the nerve to talk with her.
Suddenly she sneezes, and her glass eye comes flying out of its socket toward the man.
He reflexively reaches out, plucks it out of the air, and hands it back.
'Oh my, I am so sorry,' the woman says as she pops her eye back in place. 'Let me buy your dinner to make it up to you,' she says.
They enjoy a wonderful dinner together, and afterwards they go to the theatre followed by drinks. They talk, they laugh, she shares her deepest dreams and he shares his. She listens.
After paying for everything, she asks him if he would like to come to her place for a nightcap and stay for breakfast. ??
The next morning, she cooks a gourmet meal with all the trimmings. The guy is amazed. Everything had been SO incredible !
'You know,' he said, 'you are the perfect woman. Are you this nice to every guy you meet ?'
'No,' she replies. . .'You just happened to catch my eye.'
A nice, calm and respectable lady went into the pharmacy, walked up to
the pharmacist, looked straight into his eyes, and said, "I would like
to buy some cyanide."
The pharmacist asked, "Why in the world do you need cyanide ?"
The lady replied, "I need it to poison my husband."
The pharmacist's eyes got big and he exclaimed, "Lord have mercy ! I can't give you cyanide to kill your husband. That's against the law ! I'll lose my license ! They'll throw both of us in jail ! All kinds of bad things will happen. Absolutely not ! You CANNOT have any cyanide !"
The lady reached into her purse and pulled out a picture of her husband in bed with the pharmacist's wife.
The pharmacist looked at the picture and replied, "Well now, that's different, why didn't you tell me you had a prescription."
OUCH ! ! !
The Pastor in church asked if anyone in the congregation would like to
express praise for answered prayers.
A lady stood up and walked to the podium and she said :- “Two months ago my husband, Jim, had a terrible bicycle accident and his scrotum was completely crushed, The pain was excruciating and the doctors didn’t know if they could help him.”
You could hear an audible gasp from the men in the congregation as they imagine the terrible pain that poor Jim experienced.
She continued :- “Jim was unable to hold me or the children, and every move caused him terrible pain. We prayed as the doctors performed a delicate operation. They were able to piece together the crushed remnants of Jim’s scrotum and wrap wire round it to hold it together.”
Again, the men in the congregation squirmed uncomfortably as they imagined the horrible surgery performed on Jim.
She continued :- “Now, Jim is out of hospital and the doctors say, with time, his scrotum should recover completely.” All the men sighed with relief.
The pastor rose and tentatively asked if anyone else had anything to say.
A man rose and walked to the podium and said :- “I’m Jim, and I just want to tell my wife the word is ‘STERNUM’.”
Mildred, the church gossip, and self-appointed monitor of the
church’s morals, kept sticking her nose in to other people's business.
Several members did not approve of her extra-curricular activities,
but feared her enough to maintain their silence.
She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, a new member, of the church, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked in front of the town’s only bar one afternoon.
She emphatically told George (and several others) that everyone seeing it parked there would know what he was doing.
George, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned and walked away. He didn't explain, defend, or deny ... He said nothing.
Later that evening, George quietly parked his pickup in front of Mildred's house ... walked home ... and left it there all night.
An exasperated mother, whose son was always getting into mischief, finally asked him, "How do you expect to get into Heaven ?" The boy thought it over and said, "Well, I'll run in and out and in and out and keep slamming the gates until St. Peter says, "For Heaven's sake Dylan, come in or stay out !"
One summer evening during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her son into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he
asked with a tremor in his voice, "Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight ?"
The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. "I can't dear," she said. "I have to sleep in Daddy's room."
A long silence was broken at last by his shaky little voice. He said: "Big Sissy."
When I was six months pregnant with my third child, my three year old came into the room when I was just getting ready to get into the shower.
She said, "Mommy, you are getting fat!"
I replied, "Yes, honey, remember Mummy has a baby growing in her tummy." "I know," she replied, but what's growing in your bottom ?"
Jim and Mary were both patients in a Mental Hospital.
One day while they were walking past the hospital swimming pool, Jim suddenly jumped into the deep end and sunk to the bottom and stayed there.
Mary promptly jumped in to save him. She swam to the bottom and pulled him out.
When the Medical Director became aware of Mary's heroic act, he immediately ordered her to be discharged from the hospital, as he now considered her to be mentally stable.
When he went to tell Mary the news he said, "Mary, I have good news & bad news." “The good news is you're being discharged because since you were able to jump in and save the life of another patient, I think you've regained your senses." "The bad news is, Jim, the patient you saved, hung himself with his bathrobe belt in the bathroom. I am so sorry, but he's dead."
Mary replied, "He didn't hang himself, I put him there to dry."
A little girl asked her father: 'How did the human race appear ?'
The father answered, 'God made Adam and Eve; they had children; and so was all mankind made.'
Two days later the girl asked her mother the same question.
The mother answered, 'Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved.'
The confused girl returned to her father and said, 'Dad, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God, and Mom said they developed from monkeys ?'
The father answered, 'Well, Dear, it is very simple, I told you about my side of the family, and your mother told you about hers.'
THE CRAFTY SCOT
A man in Scotland calls his son in London the day before Christmas Eve and says, 'I hate to ruin your day, but I have to tell you that your Mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.'
'Dad, what are you talking about?' the son screams.
'We can't stand the sight of each other any longer,' the father says. 'We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Leeds and tell her.'
Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. 'Like hell they're getting divorced,' she shouts, 'I'll take care of this.'
She calls Scotland immediately, and screams at her father, 'You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME ?' and hangs up. The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife.
'Okay,' he says, 'They're both coming for Christmas and they're paying their own way.'
ONE SMALL DOT !
A kindergarten class had a homework assignment to find out something exciting
and relate it to the class the next day. When the time came to present what they'd found, the first little boy the teacher called on walked up to the front of the class, and with a piece of chalk, made a small white dot on the blackboard and sat back down.
Puzzled, the teacher asked him what it was.
'It's a period,' he replied.
'I can see that,' said the teacher, 'but what is so exciting about a period ?'
'Darned if I know,' he said, 'but this morning my sister said that she was missing one. My mum fainted, my dad nearly had a heart attack, and the boy next door has joined the Navy...
THE ROBOT KNOWS THE TRUTH
One day, John came home with another one of his unusual
purchases. "It is a robot" , John told his wife, Marsha, "but
it’s actually a lie detector".
It was just about 5:30 that afternoon when Tommy, their 11 year old son, returned home from school. Tommy was over 2 hours late. "Where have you been ?” ”Why are you over 2 hours late getting home ?" they asked.
"Several of us went to the library to work on an extra credit project," said Tommy. The Robot then walked around the table and slapped Tommy, knocking him completely out of his chair.
"Son, this robot is a lie detector, now tell us where you went after school.
"We went to Bobby's house and watched a movie."
"What did you watch ?" asked Marsha.
“The Ten Commandments," answered Tommy. The Robot went around to Tommy and once again slapped him off his chair. With lip quivering, Tommy got up, sat down and said, "I'm sorry I lied. We really watched a tape called Sex Queen."
"I'm ashamed of you Son," said John. "When I was your age, I never lied to my parents."
The robot walked around to John and delivered a roundhouse right that nearly knocked him out of his chair. Marsha was bent double laughing, almost in tears. "Boy, did you ever ask for that one !” she said, “and you can't be too mad with Tommy, dear, after all, he is your son !"
The Robot walked around the table and slapped her.
DADDY’S LITTLE GIRL
A father watched his young daughter playing in the garden.
He smiled as he reflected on how sweet and pure his little girl was.
Tears formed in his eyes as he thought about her seeing the wonders of nature through such innocent eyes.
Suddenly she just stopped and stared at the ground.
He went over to her to see what work of nature had captured her attention.
He noticed she was looking at two spiders mating.
'Daddy, what are those two spiders doing ?' she asked.
'They're mating,' her father replied.
'What do you call the spider on top ?' she asked.
'That's a Daddy Longlegs,' her father answered.
'So, the other one is a Mummy Longlegs ?' the little girl asked.
As his heart soared with the joy of such a cute and innocent question he replied, 'No dear, both of them are Daddy Longlegs.' 'The little girl, looking a little puzzled, thought for a moment, then lifted her foot and stomped them flat.
'Well, we're not having any of that Poofter stuff in our garden,’ she said.
Fred and Mary get married, but can't afford a honeymoon,
so they go back to Fred's parent's home for their first night together.
In the morning Johnny, Fred's little brother, gets up and has his breakfast.
As he is going out of the door to go to school, he asks his Mum if Fred
and Mary are up yet.
She replies, “No.”
Johnny asks, “Do you know what I think ?”
His Mum replies, “I don't want to hear what you think ! Just go to school. ”
Johnny comes home for lunch and asks his Mum, “Are Fred and Mary up yet ?”
She replies, “No.”
Johnny says, “Do you know what I think ?”
His mom replies, “Never mind what you think, eat your lunch and get back to school.”
After school, Johnny comes home and asks again, ”Are Fred and Mary up yet ?”
His mom says, “No.”
He asks, “Do you know what I think ?”
His Mom replies, “O.K., then, tell me what you think.
He says: “Last night Fred came to my room for the Vaseline and I think I gave him my model airplane glue.”
A blonde calls her boyfriend and says, "Please come over here and help me.
I have a killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure out how to get started.
Her boyfriend asks, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished ?”
The blonde says, "According to the picture on the box, it's a rooster.
Her boyfriend decides to go over and help with the puzzle. She lets him in and shows him where she has the puzzle spread all over the table. He studies the pieces for a moment, then looks at the box, then turns to her and says, "First of all, no matter what we do, we're not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a rooster.” He takes her hand and says, "Secondly, I want you to relax. Let's have a nice cup of tea, and then......" he said with a deep sigh......
"Let's put all the Corn Flakes back in the box."
A WIFES' TALE
Fresh from my shower, I stand in front of the mirror complaining to my husband that my breasts are too small.
Instead of characteristically telling me it's not so, he uncharacteristically came up with a suggestion.
"If you want your breasts to grow, then every day take a piece of toilet paper and rub it between them for a few seconds".
Willing to try anything, I fetch a piece of toilet paper and stand in front of the mirror, rubbing it between my breasts.
"How long will this take ?" I asked.
"They will grow larger over a period of years." my husband replies.
I stopped. "Do you really think rubbing a piece of toilet paper between my breasts every day will make my breasts larger over the years ?"
Without missing a beat he says, "Worked for your backside, didn't it ?"
He's still alive, and with a great deal of therapy, he may even walk again, although he will probably continue to take his meals through a straw.

THREE OLD GRANDMAS
Three old mischievous grandmas were sitting on a bench outside a nursing home.
An old grandpa walked by, and one of the old grandmas yelled out saying, "We bet we can tell exactly how old you are."
The old man said, "There ain't no way you can guess it, you old fools."
One of the ornery grandmas said, "Sure we can ! Just drop your under shorts and we can tell your exact age."
Embarrassed just a little, he dropped his under shorts. The grandmas stared at him for a while, asked him to turn around a couple of times, asked him to jump up and down for a little while and then they all piped up and said, "You're 84 years old !"
"How in the world did you guess ?"
The ornery old grandmas snickered and laughed. Slapping their knees and grinning from ear to ear, all three happily yelled in unison,
"Because we were at your birthday party yesterday.”
TWO BLONDE GIRLS
Two blonde girls were working for the city public works department. One would dig a hole and the other would follow behind her and fill the hole in. They worked up one side of the street, then down the other, then moved on to the next street, working furiously all day without rest, one girl digging a hole, the other girl filling it in again.
An onlooker was amazed at their hard work, but couldn't understand what they were doing. So he asked the hole digger, 'I'm impressed by the effort you two are putting in to your work, but I don't get it -- why do you dig a hole, only to have your partner follow behind and fill it up again?'
The hole digger wiped her brow and sighed, 'Well, I suppose it probably looks odd because we're normally a three person team. But today the girl who plants the trees called in sick.'
THOUGHTFUL YOUNG MAN
Little Bruce and Jenny are only 10 years old, but they know they are in love. One day they decide that they want to get married, so Bruce goes to Jenny's father to ask him for her hand.
Bruce bravely walks up to him and says, 'Mr. Smith, me and Jenny are in love and I want to ask you for her hand in marriage.'
Thinking that this was just the cutest thing, Mr. Smith replies, 'Well Bruce, you are only 10. Where will you two live?'
Without even taking a moment to think about it, Bruce replies, 'In Jenny's room. It's bigger than mine and we can both fit there nicely.'
Still thinking this is just adorable, Mr. Smith says with a huge grin, 'Okay then how will you live ? You're not old enough to get a job. You'll need to support Jenny.'
Again, Bruce instantly replies, 'Our allowance. Jenny makes five bucks a week and I make 10 bucks a week. That's about 60 bucks a month and that should do us just fine.'
Mr. Smith is impressed Bruce has put so much thought into this. 'Well Bruce, it seems like you have everything figured out. I just have one more question. What will you do if the two of you should have little ones of your own ?'
Bruce just shrugs his shoulders and says, 'Well, we've been lucky so far.'
Mr. Smith no longer thinks the little twit is adorable.
CATHOLICS vs JEWS
Several centuries ago, the Pope decreed that all the Jews had to convert to Catholicism or leave Italy.
There was a huge outcry from the Jewish community, so the Pope offered a deal. He'd have a religious debate with the leader of the Jewish community. If the Jews won, they could stay in Italy; if the Pope won, they'd have to convert or leave.
The Jewish people met and picked an aged and wise rabbi to represent them in the debate. However, as the rabbi spoke no Italian, and the Pope spoke no Yiddish or Hebrew, they agreed that it would be a 'silent' debate.
On the chosen day the Pope and Rabbi sat opposite each other.The Pope raised his hand and showed three fingers.The Rabbi looked back and raised one finger.
Next, the Pope waved his finger around his head.The Rabbi pointed to the ground where he sat.
The Pope brought out a communion wafer and a chalice of wine.The Rabbi pulled out an apple.
With that, the Pope stood up and declared himself beaten and said that the Rabbi was too clever. The Jews could stay in Italy.
Later the cardinals met with the Pope and asked him what had happened. The Pope said, 'First I held up three fingers to represent the Trinity. He responded by holding up a single finger to remind me there is still only one God common to both our beliefs.'
'Then, I waved my finger around my head to show him that God was all around us. He responded by pointing to the ground to show that God was also right here with us.'
'I pulled out the wine and wafer to show that God absolves us of all our sins. He pulled out an apple to remind me of the original sin. 'He bested me at every move and I could not continue.'
Meanwhile, the Jewish community gathered to ask the Rabbi how he'd won.'I haven't a clue' the Rabbi said. 'First, he told me that we had three days to get out of Italy , so I gave him the finger.'
'Then he tells me that the whole country would be cleared of Jews and I told him that we were staying right here.'
'And then what ?' asked a woman.
'Who knows ?' said the Rabbi. 'He took out his lunch so I took out mine.'

Way down in the ports of Dublin, Murph’s old lady had been
pregnant for some time and now the time had come, so he took
her to the doctor.
When the doctor began to deliver the baby she had a little boy, and the doctor looked over at Murphy and said, "Hey Murph ! You just had a son."
“Ain’t dat grand !” Murph got excited by this, but just then the doctor spoke up and said “Hold on ! We ain’t finished yet !” The doctor then delivered a little girl. He said, “Hey, Murph ! You got you a daughter !!! She is a pretty lil’ thing, too…” Murph got kind of puzzled by this and then the doctor said, “Hold on Murph, we ain’t done yet !”
The doctor then delivered another boy and said, “Murph, you just had yourself a nudder boy !”
Murph said to the doctor, “Doc, what caused all of dem babies ?”
The doctor said, “You never know Murph, it was probably something that happened during conception.”
Murph said, “Ah yeah, during conception."
When Murph and his wife went home with their three children, he sat down with his wife and said, “Mama, you remember dat night that we ran out of Vaseline and we had to use dat dere 3-in-1 Oil ?”
She said, “Yeah, I remember dat night.”
Murph said, “I’ll tell you, I reckon it’s a bloody good t’ing we didn’t use dat WD-40 !"
"Hello, is that the police ?"
"Yes it is. How can we help you ?"

The phone rings at Wazza's house. "Hey, Wazz, Did the cops come ?"

AT THE DOCTOR'S OFFICE...
A gorgeous young redhead goes into the doctor's office and said
that her body hurt wherever she touched it.
"Impossible, show me."
The redhead took her finger, pushed on her left shoulder and screamed. Then she pushed her elbow and screamed even more. She pushed her knee and screamed. Likewise she pushed her ankle and screamed. Everywhere she touched made her scream.
The doctor said, "You're not really a redhead, are you ? “
"Well, no" she said, "I'm actually a blonde."
I thought so," the doctor said. “Your finger is broken.”
Tom had been in the liquor business for 25 years.
Finally sick of the stress, he quits his job and buys 50 acres
of land in Alaska as far from humanity as possible.
He sees the postman once a week and gets groceries
once a month. Otherwise, it's total peace and quiet.
After six months or so of almost total isolation, someone knocks on his door. He opens it, and a huge bearded man is standing there. “Name's Cliff, your neighbour from forty miles up the road. Having a Christmas party Friday night. Thought you might like to come. About 5:00.”
”0h Great”, says Tom, “After six months out here I'm ready to meet some local folks. Thank you.”
As Cliff is leaving, he stops. “Gotta' warn you. Be some drinkin'.”
”Not a problem,” says Tom. “After 25 years in the business, I can drink with the best of 'em'.”
Again, the big man starts to leave and stops. “More 'n likely gonna be some fightin' too.”
”Well, I get along with people. I'll be all right. I'll be there. Thanks again.”
“More'n likely be some wild sex, too.”
”Now that's really not a problem,” says Tom, warming to the idea. “I've been all alone for six months ! I'll definitely be there.
By the way, what should I wear ?”
”Don't much matter. Just gonna be the two of us.”
On their wedding night, the young bride approached her new
husband and asked for $20.00 for their first lovemaking encounter.
In his highly aroused state, her husband readily agreed.
This scenario was repeated each time they made love, for more than 30 years, with him thinking that it was a cute way for her to afford new clothes and other incidentals that she needed.
Arriving home around noon one day, she was surprised to find her husband in a very drunken state. During the next few minutes, he explained that his employer was going through a process of corporate downsizing, and he had been let go. It was unlikely that, at the age of 59, he'd be able to find another position that paid anywhere near what he'd been earning, and therefore, they were financially ruined.
Calmly, his wife handed him a bank book which showed more than thirty years of steady deposits and interest totalling nearly $1 million.
Then she showed him certificates of deposits issued by the bank which were Worth over $2 million, and informed him that they were one of the largest depositors in the bank.
She explained that for the more than three decades she had ‘charged’ him for sex, these holdings had multiplied and these were the results of her savings and investments.
Faced with evidence of cash and investments worth over $3 million, her husband was so astounded he could barely speak, but finally he found his voice and blurted out, ‘If I’d had any idea what you were doing, I would have given you all my business !’
That’s when she shot him.
THE ELDERLY IRISH VIRGIN
In a tiny village on the Irish coast lived an old lady, a virgin and
very proud of it.
Sensing that her final days were rapidly approaching, and desiring to make sure everything was in proper order when she dies, she went to the town's undertaker (who also happened to be the local postal clerk) to make proper "final arrangements".
As a last wish, she informed the undertaker that she wanted the following inscription engraved on her Tombstone:
"BORN A VIRGIN, LIVED AS A VIRGIN, DIED A VIRGIN"
Not long after, the old maid died peacefully. A few days after the funeral, as the undertaker/postal clerk went to prepare the tombstone that the lady had requested, it became quite apparent that the tombstone that she had selected was much too small for the wording that she had chosen.
He thought long and hard about how he could fulfill the old maid's final request, considering the very limited space available on the small piece of grave stone she had selected.
For days, he agonized over the dilemma. But finally his experience as a postal worker allowed him to come up with what he thought was the appropriate solution to the problem.
The virgin's tombstone was finally completed and duly engraved, and it read as follows:
...AND A VOICE FROM OUT OF THE GLOOM SAYETH UNTO ME,
“SMILE AND BE HAPPY, FOR THINGS COULD BE WORSE.”
So I SMILED AND WAS HAPPY, AND BEHOLD……..
THINGS BECAME MUCH WORSE !
