Okay, silly as all get-out joke I heard in Maryland this weekend past:

Pirate walks into a bar, the pirate has (of all things) a steering wheel attached to his ---.

The bartender serves the pirate, but cannot help asking, "Pardon me, but is that a steering wheel attached to, well, to your ---?

"Arrr! And it's driving me nuts."

My dad used to tell this joke, usually to play the bad boy for his parents, who were members of a teetotalling church.

A minister, eager to teach his children about the evils of Demon Rum, gets two large jars, one filled with water, the other with alcohol. Into each, he puts an earthworm. In the water, the earthworm thrives. In the alcohol, it quickly dies and shrivels.

"Now, son, what does that tell you?" the minister asks.

The son answered, "If you drink a lot, you'll never have worms!"

What's the difference between a viola and a coffin? A coffin has a dead person on the inside.
What do you do with a dead violist? Move him back a desk.
How do you make a viola section play tremolando pianissimo? Mark a passage soli.
What is the range of a Viola? As far as you can kick it.
etc. etc.

All of them orchestra favourites passed down from generation to generation.

And the best viola joke, though sadly it only works in German:

Was sind die drei Lagen auf der Bratsche?
Erste Lage, Notlage, und Niederlage.

(What are the three positions of the viola?
First position, emergency, and defeat.)

The orchestra's conductor cried off, suddenly, before the concert.

Efforts by management to find a replacement were fruitless.

Eventually, they were forced to look at the qualifications of the musicians and discovered that the principal violist had attended a Summer School in conducting only the year before.

He was offered the concert and took it. It was a huge success.

Next morning at rehearsal his colleague said to him: "Where were you last night?"

When I was a child I really wanted a skateboard. I kept asking my parents but they kept on refusing, telling me that we were simply too poor for them to buy one for me.

So, one night I crept out to our garden shed and pulled out some planks of wood and a hammer and......... I battered my parents to death.

Peter Schickele told this story when he had his radio show, Schickele Mix.  I believe I wrote it here some years ago.

An anthropologist finds an unknown tribe in a remote area: he is drawn there by drumming, incredible drumming in fact, that never seemed to cease.  He is able to communicate with the people, and meets the chief.  Of course the drumming comes up in their talk, and immediately the chief looks nervous, making the anthropologist  afraid that he has broken a taboo.  But the chief says:

"If drums beat, life good!"

And in fact the drums beat 24 hours a day!  The rhythms are never the same, and they sound fascinating, but the anthropolgist is sure something else is happening, because he cannot see the drummers anywhere.  He keeps asking other members of the tribe about the drums, and where they might be located, but the answer is always the same:

"If drums beat, life good!"


After two weeks, the anthropolgist must leave, and he says his farewells to the chief, when...you guessed it!...the drums stop beating!!!

Suddenly people drop to their knees in anguish, claw the ground in despair, and everywhere there is Biblical wailing and gnashing of teeth!   

"Oh no!  OH NO!!!" cries the chief holding his head.
"Chief!  What's wrong?" says the anthropologist.  "What will happen now?!"

The chief gulps and trembles, but finally pulls himself together and says:






"Time for bass solo!!!"

Three engineering students were gathered together discussing the possible
designers of the human body.

One said, ``It was a mechanical engineer.  Just look at all the joints.''

Another said, ``No, it was an electrical engineer.  The nervous system has
many thousands of electrical connections.''

The shortest math joke ever: Let epsilon be less than 0

Three men are in a hot-air balloon. Soon, they find themselves lost in a canyon somewhere. One of the three men says, "I've got an idea. We can call for help in this canyon and the echo will carry our voices far."
So he leans over the basket and yells out, "Helllloooooo! Where are we?" (They hear the echo several times).
15 minutes later, they hear this echoing voice: "Helllloooooo! You're lost!!"
One of the men says, "That must have been a mathematician." Puzzled, one of the other men asks, "Why do you say that?" The reply: "For three reasons. (1) he took a long time to answer, (2) he was absolutely correct, and (3) his answer was absolutely useless."

So, an electrical engineer, a mechanical engineer and a civil engineer are talking about God.
"God is the world's first and greatest electrical engineer,' says, obviously, the electrical engineer. "Look at the nervous system and the internal working of the brain: a tremendous feat of electrical engineering."
"That may be," says the mechanical engineer, "but if you look at the bones, tendons and muscles, you see that God is really a master mechanical engineer."
"No, he's a civil engineer," the civil engineer says.
"How do you figure?" the others ask.
"Who else but a civil engineer would run a wastewater system through a great recreational area?"

Courtesy of our Queso Grande:
 
Lipstick in School

According to a news report, a certain private school in Cork, Ireland, was recently faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lip stick, they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.
 
Every night the maintenance man would remove them, and the next day the girls would put them back.
 
Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can just imagine the yawns from the little princesses).
 
To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.  He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.
 
There are teachers ..... and then there are educators.

Passenger: "There are always a few clouds over everybody."

Passenger: "Sounds like he was something really special."

Not like me. I change a fuse, and the whole street blacks out. But Frank Feldman, he could do everything right."

Cabbie: "He always knew the quickest way to go in traffic and avoid traffic jams.. Not like me, I always seem to get stuck in them. But Frank, he never made a mistake, and he really knew how to treat a woman and make her feel good. He would never answer her back even if she was in the wrong; and his clothing was always immaculate, shoes highly polished too. He was the perfect man! He never made a mistake. No one could ever measure up to Frank Feldman."

An attorney arrived home late, after a very tough day trying to get a stay of execution. His last minute plea for clemency to the governor had failed and he was feeling worn out and depressed.
 
As soon as he walked through the door at home, his wife started on him about, 'What time of night to be getting home is this? Where have you been? Dinner is cold and I'm not reheating it'. And on and on and on.
 
Too shattered to play his usual role in this familiar ritual, he poured himself a shot of whiskey and headed off for a long hot soak in the bathtub, pursued by the predictable sarcastic remarks as he dragged himself up the stairs.
 
While he was in the bath, the phone rang. The wife answered and was told that her husband's client, James Wright, had been granted a stay of execution after all. Wright would not be hanged tonight.
 
Finally realizing what a terrible day he must have had, she decided to go up stairs and give him the good news.
 
As she opened the bathroom door, she was greeted by the sight of her husband, bent over naked, drying his legs and feet.
 
'They're not hanging Wright tonight,' she said.
 
He whirled around and screamed, 'FOR THE LOVE OF GOD WOMAN, DON'T YOU EVER STOP?!'

A father walks into a restaurant with his young son. He gives the young boy 3 nickels to play with to keep
him occupied. Suddenly, the boy starts choking, going blue in the face. The father realizes the boy has swallowed the nickels and starts slapping him on the back. The boy coughs up 2 of the nickels, but keeps
choking. Looking at his son, the father is panicking, shouting for help.
 
A well dressed, attractive and serious looking woman in a blue business suit is sitting at the coffee bar
reading a newspaper and sipping a cup of coffee. At the sound of the commotion, she looks up, puts her
coffee cup down, neatly folds the newspaper and places it on the counter, gets up from her seat and makes her way, unhurried, across the restaurant.

Reaching the boy, the woman carefully drops his pants, takes hold of the boy's testicles and starts to  squeeze and twist, gently at first and then ever so firmly. After a few seconds the boy convulses violently and
coughs up the last nickel, which the woman deftly catches in her free hand. Releasing the boy's testicles, the woman hands the nickel to the father and walks back to her seat at the coffee bar without saying a word.

As soon as he is sure that his son has suffered no ill effects, the father rushes over to the woman and starts
thanking her saying, "I've never seen anybody do anything like that before, it was fantastic. Are you a doctor?"

"No", the woman replied, "divorce lawyer"

Frank came home from the pub late one Friday evening stinking drunk, as he often did, and crept into bed beside his wife who was already asleep.

He gave her a peck on the cheek and fell asleep. When he awoke, he found a strange man standing at the end of his bed. 'Who the hell are you?', demanded Frank , 'and what are you doing in my bedroom ?'

The mysterious man answered, 'This isn't your bedroom and I'm St Peter ....'

Frank was stunned. 'You mean I'm dead !!! That can't be, I have so much to live for - and I haven't said goodbye to my family. . ..... You've got to send me back straight away.'

St Peter replied, 'Yes, you can be reincarnated but there is a catch. We can only send you back as a dog or a hen.'

Frank was devastated, but knowing there was a farm not far from his house, he asked to be sent back as a hen.

A flash of light later, he was covered in feathers and clucking around, pecking the ground.

'This ain't so bad', he thought until he felt this strange feeling welling up inside him. The farmyard rooster strolled over and said, 'So you're the new hen, How are you enjoying your first day here ?'

'It's not so bad', replies Frank, 'but I have this strange feeling inside like I'm about to explode.'

'You're ovulating', explained the rooster.. 'Don't tell me you've never laid an egg before.'

'Never', replies Frank ..

'Well just relax and let it happen'..

And so he did and after a few uncomfortable seconds later, an egg pops out from under his tail. An immense feeling of relief swept over him and his emotions got the better of him as he experienced motherhood for the first time.

When he laid his second egg, the feeling of happiness was overwhelming and he knew that being reincarnated as a hen was the best thing that ever happened to him .. . . Ever!!!

The joy kept coming and as he was just about to lay his third egg, he felt an enormous smack on the back of his head and heard his wife shouting...

' Frank, wake up, you drunken bastard. You've shit the bed !!'  >:(

Two apples are walking down the street.

One says ‘ I’m the sweetest apple in the whole world’.

The other one objected :”Hell No! I’m the sweetest apple in the whole world!…

The argument went on for hours…

Spontaneously there walked a dog there and he asked the apples :

‘ My dear Apples Let me be the judge and settle this for you once and for all’?

‘Please do!’ they replied.

The dog took the first apple and gave it a big mouthful…

:”Woho! This is some sweet apple! Now lets try the second one!

He grabbed the second one and hurled to his belly, and that was the end of the two sweet apples who were very sweet indeed in the dog's belly.

Cape Cod Massachusetts. Yes, it matters....  :)

A young blond woman was so depressed that she decided to end her life by throwing herself from the Bourne Bridge . She was about to leap into the frigid water when a handsome young sailor saw her tottering on the edge of the bridge, crying. He took pity on her and said "Look, you have so much to live for. I'm off to Europe in the morning, and if you like, I can stow you away on my ship and you can start a new life in Europe ... I'll take good care of you and bring you food everyday".

"How can I repay you for such kindness" she asked.

"Just let me make love to you each night..." The blond agreed.

That night, the sailor brought her aboard and hid her in a lifeboat. From then on, every night he brought her three sandwiches and a piece of fruit, and they made passionate love until dawn. Three weeks later, during a routine inspection, she was discovered by the captain.

"What are you doing here?" the captain asked.

"I have an arrangement with one of the sailors, who stowed me away" she explained. "I get food and free passage to Europe and he's screwing me".

"He certainly is", the captain said. "This is the Martha's Vineyard Ferry."

He replied that he & his wife had played the course every year - for over 20 years - but this year she had passed away and he kept the tee time in her memory. The twosome commented that they thought certainly someone would have been willing to take her spot. "So did I" he said - "but they all wanted to go to the funeral."

  Why did the chicken cross the road?

  Karl Marx: It was a historical necessity.

  Hippocrates: Becase of an excess of pink gooey stuff in its pancreas.

  Jacques Derrida: Any number of contending discourses may be
   discovered within the act of the chicken crossing the road, and each interpretation is equally valid, as the authorial intent can never be discerned,and structuralism is dead.

 Machiavelli: So that its subjects will view it with admiration,
 as a chicken which has the daring and courage to boldly cross the
 road, but also with fear, for who among them has the strength to
 contend with such a paragon of avian virtue. In such a manner is the princely chicken's dominion maintained.
 
Timothy Leary: Because that's the only trip the establishment would let it take !

Douglas Adams: 42.

Friedrich Nietzsche: Because if you gaze too long across the road,the road gazes back at you.

Oliver North: National security was at stake.

Ronald Reagan: I forgot !

B.F. Skinner: Because the external influences which had pervaded its sensorium from birth had caused it to develope in such a fashion
that it would tend to cross roads,even while believing these actions  were of its own free will.

Jean Paul Sartre: In order to act in good faith and be true to itself,
the chicken found it necessary to cross the road.

Carl Jung: The confluence of events in the cultural Gestalt  necessitated cross the road at this historical juncture.And therefore
synchronicitously brought such occurrances into being.

Albert Einstein: Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road crossed the chicken depends on your frame of reference.

Wittgenstein: The possibility of crossing was encoded into the objects
chicken and road and circumstances came into being which caused
the actualization of this potential occurrance.

Charles Darwin: It was the logical next stepafter coming down
from the trees.

Aristotle: To actualize its potential.

The Buddha: If you ask this question, you deny your own chicken nature.

Epiciris: For fun.

Emily Dickinson: Because it could not stop for death.

Ralph Waldo Emerson: It did not cross the road, it transcended it.

Howard Cosell: It may have very well been one of the most
astonishing events to grace the annals of history. Anheroic,unprecedented avian biped with the temerity to attempt such a herculean achievement formerly relegated to Homo Sapiens pedestrians is truly a remarkable occurrance.

Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe: The eternal hen principle made it do it.

Earnest Hemingway: To die. In the rain.

Werner Heisneberg: We are not sure which side of the road the chicken was on, but it was very fast.

David Hume: Out of custom and habit.

Jack Nicholson: Cause it Bleepin' wanted to .That's the bleepin'

The Sphinx: You tell me.

Mark Twain: Reports of the chicken's crossing have been greatly exaggerated.

The dumbest kid in the world.

A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer, "This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you."

The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, "Which do you want, son?"

The boy takes the quarters and leaves.

"What did I tell you?" said the barber. "That kid never learns!"

Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store. "Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?"

The boy licked his cone and replied, "Because the day I take the dollar, the game's over."

Polish Sausage

A guy goes into a store and tells the clerk, "I'd like some Polish sausage."

The clerk looks at him and says, "Are you Polish?"

The guy, clearly offended, says, "Well, yes I am. But let me ask you something." If I had asked for Italian sausage would you ask me if I was Italian? Or if I had asked for German bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German? Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish? Or if I had asked for a taco would you ask if I was Mexican? Would ya, huh? Would ya?"

The clerk says, "Well, no."

With deep self-righteous indignation, the guy says, "Well, all right then, why did you ask me if I'm Polish just because I ask for Polish sausage?"

The clerk replies, "Because this is Home Depot."

New Panties

A frustrated wife buys  a pair of crotchless panties in an attempt to spice up her dead  sex-life.  She puts them on, together with a short skirt and sits  on the sofa opposite her husband.  At strategic moments she  uncrosses her legs ... enough times that her husband finally asks,

"Are  you wearing crotchless panties?"

"Y-e-s," she answers with a  seductive smile.

"Thank God - I thought you were sitting on the  cat."

"What do you mean?" said the pirate, "I feel fine."

"What about the wooden leg? You didn't have that before."

"Well," said the pirate, "We were in a battle, and I got hit with a cannon ball, but I'm fine now."

The bartender replied, "Well, OK, but what about that hook? What happened to your hand?"

The pirate explained, "We were in another battle. I boarded a ship and got into a sword fight. My hand
was cut off. I got fitted with a hook but I'm fine, really."

"Oh," said the pirate, "One day we were at sea, and a flock of birds flew over. I looked up, and one

In these turbulent time, let’s re-visit this lesson on economics.

Socialism
You have 2 cows. You give one to your neighbour.

Communism
You have 2 cows. The State takes them both and gives you some milk.

Fascism
You have 2 cows. The State takes both of them and sells you some milk.

Bureaucratism
You have 2 cows. The State takes them both, shoots one, milks the other, and then throws the milk away.

Traditional Capitalism
You have 2 cows. You sell one and buy a bull. Your herd multiplies and the economy grows.You sell them and retire on the income.

Surrealism
You have 2 giraffes. The Government requires you to take harmonica lessons.

An American corporation
You have 2 cows. You sell one and force the other to produce the milk of 4 cows. Later, you hire a consultant to analyse why the cow dropped dead.

A French corporation
You have 2 cows. You go on strike, organise a riot and block the roads because you want 3 cows.

A Japanese corporation
You have 2 cows. You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size of an ordinary cow and produce 20 times the milk. You then create a clever cow cartoon image called ‘Cowkimon’ and market it worldwide.

A German corporation
You have 2 cows. You re-engineer them so they live for 100 years, eat once a month, and milk themselves.

An Italian corporation
You have 2 cows but you don’t know where they are. You decide to have lunch.

A Russian corporation
You have 2 cows. You count them and discover you have 5 cows. You count them again and learn you have 43 cows. You count them again and learn you have 2 cows. You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka.

A Swiss corporation
You have 5000 cows but none of them belong to you. You charge the owners for storing them.

A Chinese corporation
You have 2 cows. You have 300 people milking them. You claim you have full employment and high bovine productivity. The police arrest the journalist who reported the real situation.

An Indian corporation
You have 2 cows. You worship them.

A British corporation.
You have 2 cows. Both are mad.

An Iraqi corporation
Everyone thinks you have lots of cows. You tell them that you have none. No-one believes you, so they bomb the bejesus out of you and invade your country. You still have no cows, but at least now you are part of a Democracy.

An Australian corporation
You have 2 cows. Business seems pretty good. You close the office and go for a few beers to celebrate.

A New Zealand corporation
You have 2 cows. The one on the left looks very attractive.....


Any suggestions as to what a Progressive Corporation would do?

Then you say, "Who's there?" and we're stumped, right?

Greatest knock knock joke ever was on one of Bill Maher's panel discussions. Gary Shandling said to Kato Kaelin, "Knock knock."

Kato said, "Who's there?"

And Gary said, "Oh, you know."

Of course, that joke only works if you're talking to Kato.

OK, Iam not sure if it was meant to be a joke or maybe she was serious but, last week Kimi held a pen and just moved it around apiece of paper with no apparent purpose in mind (or does she has the motor control to actually draw anything recognizeable). Soon a continuous line that goes round and round got thicker and thicker, messier and messier. So I had to ask:

"Hey, what are you drawing?"

"Dad, don't you recognize a bowl of noodles???"

A guy is driving around the back woods  of Montana and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house: 
Talking Dog
For Sale
He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells  him the dog is in the backyard. So, the guy goes into the backyard and  sees a nice-looking Labrador retriever sitting there.

"You talk?" he  asks.

"Yep," the Lab replies..

After the guy recovers from the shock of  hearing a dog talk, he says "So, what's your story?"

The Lab looks up  and says, "Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I  wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA. In no time at all they  had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and  world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping. I was  one of their most valuable spies for eight years running. But the jetting  around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I  decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch  of medals. I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired." 

The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for  the dog.

"Ten dollars," the guy says.

"Ten dollars? This dog is amazing!  Why on Earth are you selling him so cheap?"

"Because he's a liar. He  never did any of that shit."

There I was sitting at the bar staring at my drink when a large, trouble-making biker steps up next to me, grabs my drink and gulps it down in one swig. 

"Well, whatcha gonna do about it?" he says, menacingly, as I burst into tears.

"Come on, man," the biker says, "I didn't think you'd CRY.  I can`t stand to see a man crying."

"This is the worst day of my life," I say. "I'm a complete failure.  I was late to a meeting and my boss fired me.  When I went to the parking lot, I found my car had been stolen and I don't have any insurance.  I left my wallet in the cab I took home.  I found my old lady in bed with the gardener and then my dog bit me." "So I came to this bar to work up the courage to put an end to it all. I buy a drink. I drop a capsule in and sit here watching the arsenic dissolve.  Then some jack-ass shows up and drinks the whole thing! But enough about me, how's your day going?"

Whenever my wife decides to paint a room, she asks me to first move the furniture. I have a tendency to prematurely do so, assuming  that she is actually going to begin her work on the day she has set aside for the job. This morning my wife got up just as I had left the downstairs bathroom, which is next to the den due to be painted today. My wife, who evidently had changed her mind about when she will be painting, fears that I have started to clear out the furniture. She shouts, "Stop moving the furniture." I reply, "The only thing that I moved was my bowels."

  A guy named Benny finds one of those lamps with the genie in it,and rubs it. Naturally,the genie comes out of the lamp and thanks him for freeing him.
  He tells Benny that as a reward,he may have anything he wants.All the riches,power,fame and beautiful women he could ever want.
 But there's one condition. He must let his beard grow and never shave it off. The genie warns that there will be dire consequences if he does.
  Do Benny lets his beard grow and becomes fabulously wealthy,and lives a life of unimaginable luxury.
  But some years later, he forgets the warning and shaves his beard off. Suddenly,the genie appears and says ominously-"Benny,you have shaved your beard off and all your happiness is at an end.Now for the dire consequences.I will turn you into an earn,"
   Poof,and in an instant Benny turns into an urn.
The moral of the story? "A Benny shaved is a Benny urned".

1. Chicago Cubs outfielder Andre Dawson on being a role model: "I wan' all dem kids to do what I do, to  look up to me. I wan' all the kids to copulate me."
 
2. New Orleans Saint RB George Rogers when asked about the upcoming season: "I want to rush for 1,000 or 1,500 yards, whichever comes  first."

3. And, upon hearing Joe Jacobi of the 'Skin's say: "I'd run over my own mother to win the Super Bowl,"  Matt Millen of the Raiders said: "To win, I'd run over Joe's Mom,  too.."

4. Torrin Polk, University of  Houston receiver, on his coach, John Jenkins: "He treats us like men. He lets  us wear earrings.." 

5. Football  commentator and former player Joe Theismann: "Nobody in football should be called a genius. A genius is a guy like Norman Einstein."

7. Bill Peterson, a  Florida State football coach: "You guys line up alphabetically by height.." And, "You guys pair up in groups of three, and then line up in a circle."

8. Boxing promoter Dan Duva on Mike Tyson going to prison: "Why would  anyone expect him to come out smarter? He went to prison for three years, not  Princeton "

9. Stu Grimson, Chicago Blackhawks left wing, explaining why he keeps a color photo of himself above  his locker: "That's so when I forget how to spell my name, I can still find my clothes."

10. Lou Duva, veteran boxing  trainer, on the Spartan training regime of heavyweight Andrew Golota:"He's a guy who gets up at six o'clock in the morning, regardless of what time it  is."

11. Chuck Nevitt , North Carolina  State basketball player, explaining to Coach Jim Valvano why he appeared nervous at practice: "My sister's expecting a baby, and I don't know if I'm  going to be an uncle or an aunt." (I wonder if his IQ ever hit room  temperature in January)

12. Frank  Layden , Utah Jazz president, on a former player: "I told him, 'Son, what is  it with you? Is it ignorance or apathy?' He said, 'Coach, I don't know and I  don't care.'"


14. In the words  of NC State great Charles Shackelford "I can go to my left or right, I am  amphibious."

15. Amarillo High School  and Oiler coach Bum Phillips when asked by Bob Costas why he takes his wife on  all the road trips, Phillips responded: "Because she is too damn ugly to kiss good-bye."

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 called 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. Obviously we can no longer call this a soft drink, and it gives new meaning to the names of 'cocktails', 'highballs' and just a good old-fashioned 'stiff drink'. Pepsi will market the new concoction by the name of: MOUNT & DO.

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.

It looks like two versions of the joke got mixed up, one using Nancy Pelosi, and one using some Ms. Adams as the butt of the joke.  I found an all-Pelosi version here:  http://pilotsfor911truth.org/forum/index.php?showtopic=18274&mode=threaded&pid=10778529

Of course, it'd make even more sense if Ms. "I'm not a witch"'s name were substituted for Pelosi's.

Jay Leno went into the audience to find the most embarrassing first date
that a woman ever had.
The winner described her worst first date experience.
There was absolutely no question as to why her tale took the prize!

She said it was midwinter, snowing and quite cold. And the guy had taken
her skiing in the mountains outside Salt Lake City , Utah .
It was a day trip (no overnight). They were strangers, after all, and
had never met before. The outing was fun but relatively uneventful
until they were headed home late that afternoon.

They were driving back down the mountain, when she gradually began to
realize that she should not have had that extra latte. They were about an
hour away from anywhere with a rest room and in the middle of nowhere!

Her companion suggested she try to hold it, which she did for awhile.
Unfortunately, because of the heavy snow and slow going, there came a point
where she told him that he had better stop and let her go beside the road,
or it would be the front seat of his car.

They stopped and she quickly crawled out beside the car, yanked her pants
down and started.
In the deep snow she didn't have good footing, so she let her butt rest
against the rear fender to steady herself.
Her companion stood on the side of the car watching for traffic and indeed
was a real gentleman and refrained from peeking. All she could think about
was the relief she felt despite the rather embarrassing nature of the
situation.
Upon finishing, however, she soon became aware of another sensation. As she
bent to pull up her pants, the young lady discovered her buttocks were
firmly stuck to the car's fender.

Thoughts of tongues frozen to poles immediately came to mind as she
attempted to disengage her flesh from the icy metal. It was quickly apparent
that she had a brand new problem, due to the extreme cold.

Horrified by her plight and yet aware of the humor of the moment, she
answered her date's concerns about 'what is taking so long' with a reply
that indeed, she was 'freezing her butt off' and in need of some assistance!

He came around the car as she tried to cover herself with her sweater and
then, as she looked imploringly into his eyes, he burst out laughing. She
too, got the giggles and when they finally managed to compose themselves,
they assessed her dilemma.

Obviously, as hysterical as the situation was, they also were faced with a
real problem.
Both agreed it would take something hot to free her chilly cheeks from the
grip of the icy metal!

Thinking about what had gotten her into the predicament in the first place,
both quickly realized that there was only one way to get her free.

So, as she looked the other way, her first time date proceeded to unzip his
pants and pee her butt off the fender.

As the audience screamed in laughter, she took the Tonight Show prize hands
down.
Or perhaps that should be 'pants down.' And you thought your first date was
embarrassing.

Jay Leno's comment: 'This gives a whole new meaning to being **** off.'

Oh and how did the first date turn out?
He became her husband and was sitting next to her on the Leno show.

The gigantic amount of white space in Satzaroo's unfunny jokes post is irritating.  You use line breaks to separate paragraphs, not to separate sentences.  This post uses multiple line breaks per sentence.  We all have the habit of using unnecessary breaks in posts that are 3-5 sentences long, but when you post something that is a page long you should consider proper formatting. :)

I explained the foul up and apologized for it. And the fact that you cannot delete your own post doesn't help. Maybe your avatar should be a jackal.

  Why are polticians like diapers ? They both need to be changed frequently,and for the same reason.

 A crocodile goes to his doctor and complains "Doc,I don't seem to have any get up and go any more. I just don't have the stamina to lie there for hours in the water waiting for prey. What's the matter with me?"
   The doctor examines the croc, and then tells him "It appears you have a reptile dyfunction."

  Any American who is prepared to run for President should automatically,by definition be disqualified from ever doing so.
  Gore Vidal.

  Osama Bin Laden was worried about his future and wondered when he was going to die. So he consulted a Muslim soothsayer and and asked about this. The soothsayer gazed into a crystal ball and said
"You will die on an American holiday". Bin Laden asked excitedly "What American holiday?"  The soothsayer replies "It doesn't matter.Any day you die will be an American holiday".

  Two goats were graing around an old abandones Hollywood studio.
   One of them sees an old film reel and eats it. The other asks about it. The reply? "To tell you the truth,the book was better".

   One day in heaven,God was feeling very tired and stressed from all his hard work,so he went to Saint Peter to ask him about
recommendations for where to take a vacation.
  Saint Peter said,"How about the planet Mercury? "" No,it's too hot over there". "How about Saturn"."No,it's too cold there".
 "  How about Jupiter?" Nope, the gravity is too strong and it hurt my back".
  "I know, how about the planet earth? The climate's great, and there are lots of fun things to do".
   God replied, "Earth? Are you kidding? 2,000 years ago I had an affair with a nice Jewish girl there,and they're still talking about it !"

 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, so 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 children of your own?"

 Bruce just shrugs his shoulders and says,

 "Well, we've been lucky so far."

 Mr. Smith no longer thinks the little shit is adorable.

Two gorgeous blonde biologists were in the field one fine summer day. While following a game trail, they came across a pair of tracks. "Look! a pair of tracks" The first blonde said while pointing to the ground.
"Those are deer tracks," the other blonde replied.
"Oh no,"she said to the first, "Those are definitely moose tracks."
With this, they began to argue. In fact, they were still arguing when the train hit them.

A good-looking man walked into an agent's office in Hollywood and said, "I want to be a movie star."  Tall, handsome and, with experience on Broadway, he had the right credentials.
The agent asked, "What's your name?"

The guy said, "My name is Penis van Lesbian."

The agent said, "Sir, I hate to tell you, but in order to get into Hollywood, you are going to have to change your name."

"I will NOT change my name!  The van Lesbian name is centuries old.  I will not disrespect my grandfather by changing my name.  Not ever."

The agent said, "Sir, I have worked in Hollywood for years.  You will NEVER go far in Hollywood with a name like Penis van Lesbian!  I'm telling you, you will HAVE TO change your name, or I will not be able to represent you."

"So be it!  I guess we will not do business together," the guy said, and he left the agent's office.

Five years later the agent opens an envelope sent to his office. Inside the envelope were a letter and a check for $50,000.  The agent is awe-struck.  Who would possibly send him $50,000?  He reads the letter enclosed...

"Dear Sir,

Five years ago, I came into your office wanting to become an actor in Hollywood & you told me I needed to change my name.  Determined to make it with my God-given birth name, I refused.  You told me I would never make it in Hollywood with a name like Penis van Lesbian.  After I left your office, I thought about what you said.  I decided you were right.  I had to change my name.  I had too much pride to return to your office, so I signed with another agent.  I would never have made it without changing my name, so the enclosed check is a token of my appreciation.

Thank you for your advice.

Sincerely,

Dick van Dyke

'Life is so boring. We never have any fun any more.


For $10.00 I'd take my clothes off and streak through that stupid, boring flower show!'


'You're on!' said the other old lady, holding up a $10.00 note.


The first little old lady slowly fumbled her way out of her clothes and completely naked,


streaked (as fast as an old lady can) through the front door of the flower show.


Waiting outside, her friend soon heard a huge commotion inside the hall,followed by loud


applause and shrill whistling.


Finally, the smiling and naked old lady came through the exit door surrounded by a cheering,


clapping crowd.


'What happened?' asked her waiting friend.


'I won $1000 as 1st prize for 'Best Dried Arrangement....!!!'

ANGER MANAGEMENT
When you occasionally have a really bad day, and you just need to take it out on someone, don't take it out on someone you know, take it out on someone you don't know. It all started one day when I was sitting at my desk and remembered a phone call I had forgotten to make. I found the number and dialed it. A man answered, saying,

'Hello.'

I politely said, 'This is Rich. May I please speak with Robin Carter? '

Suddenly, the phone was slammed down on me.* I couldn't believe that anyone could be so rude. I tracked down Robin's correct number and called her. I had transposed the last two digits of her phone number. After hanging up with her, I decided to call the 'wrong' number again. When the same guy answered the phone, I yelled, 'You're an ...hole!' and hung up. I wrote his number down with the word '...hole' next to it, and put it in my desk drawer. Every couple of weeks, when I was paying bills or had a really bad day, I'd call him up and yell,* 'You're an ...hole!'* It always cheered me up. When Caller ID came to our area, I thought my therapeutic '...hole' calling would have to stop. So, I called his number and said;

'Hi, this is John Smith from the Telephone Company. I'm just calling to see if you're interested in the Caller ID program?'

He yelled 'NO!' and slammed the phone down.

I quickly called him back and said, 'That's because you're an ...hole!'

One day I was at the store, getting ready to pull into a parking spot. Some guy in a black BMW cut me off and pulled into the spot I had patiently waited for. I hit the horn and yelled that I had been waiting for the spot. The idiot ignored me. I noticed a 'For Sale' sign in his car window, so I wrote down his number.* A couple of days later, right after calling the first ...hole, (I had his number on speed dial) , I thought I had better call the BMW ...hole, too.* I said

'Is this the man with the black BMW for sale?'

'Yes, it is.'

'Can you tell me where I can see it?'

'Yes, I live at 1802 West 34th Street. It's a yellow house, and the car's parked right out in front.'

'What's your name?' I asked.

'My name is Don Burgemeyer,' he said.

'When's a good time to catch you, Don?'

'I'm home every evening after five.'

'Listen,Don, can I tell you something?'

'Yes?'

'Don, you're an ...hole.'

Then I hung up, and added his number to my speed dial, too. Now, when I had a problem, I had two ...holes to call. But after several months of calling them, it wasn't as enjoyable as it used to be. So, I came up with an idea. I called ...hole #1.

'Hello.'

'You're an ...hole!' (But I didn't hang up.)

'Are you still there?' he asked.

'Yeah,' I said.

'Stop calling me,' he screamed.

'Make me,' I yelled.

'Who are you?' he asked.

'My name is Don Burgemeyer.'

'Yeah? Where do you live?'

'...hole, I live at 1802 West 34th Street, a yellow house, with my black beamer parked in front.'

He said, 'I'm coming over right now, Don. And you had better start saying your prayers.'

I said, 'Yeah, like I'm really scared, ...hole.'

Then I called ...hole #2.

'Hello?' he said.

'Hello, ...hole,' I said.

He yelled, 'If I ever find out who you are!'

'You'll what?' I said.

'I'll kick your ...,' he exclaimed.

I answered, 'Well, ...hole, here's your chance. I'm coming over right now.'

Then I hung up and immediately called the police, saying that I lived at 1802 West 34th Street, and that I was on my way over there to kill my gay lover. Then I called Channel 9 News to let them know about the war going down on West 34th Street. I quickly got into my car and headed over to 34th street. There I saw two ...holes beating the crap out of each other in front of six squad cars, a police helicopter, and a news crew. NOW, I feel better. Anger management really works!!!!!

A husband wrote the following letter for his wife and left it on the dining room table:

"To My Dear Wife,
You will surely understand that I have certain needs that you, being 54 years old, can no longer satisfy.
I am very happy with you and I value you as a good wife.
Therefore after reading this letter I hope you will not wrongly interpret the fact that I will be spending the evening with my 18-year-old secretary at the Comfort Inn Hotel. Please don't be upset I shall be back home before midnight."
When the man came home late that night he found the following letter on the dining room table:

"To My Dear Husband,
I received your letter and thank you for your honesty about my being 54 years old. I would like to take this opportunity to remind you that you are also 54 years old. As you know I am a math teacher at our local college. I would like to inform you that while you read this I will be at the Hotel Fiesta with Michael, one of my students, who is also the assistant tennis coach. He is young, virile, and like your secretary, is 18 years old.
As a successful businessman with an excellent knowledge of math you will understand that we are in the same situation, although with one small difference; 18 goes into 54 a lot more times than 54 goes into 18.
Therefore I will not be home until sometime tomorrow.

Ran across this one:

You Don 't Have To Own A Cat To Appreciate This One! You don't even have to like 'em!

We were dressed, and ready to go out for the New Years Eve Party. We turned on a night light, turned the answering machine on, covered our pet parakeet, and put the cat in the backyard.

We phoned the local cab company and requested a taxi. The taxi arrived and we opened the front door to leave the house.

As we walked out the door, the cat we had put out in the yard, scoots back into the house. We didn't want the cat shut in the house. Because she always tries to eat the bird.

My wife goes on out to the taxi, while I went back inside to get the cat . The cat runs upstairs, with me in hot pursuit. Waiting in the cab, my wife doesn't want the driver to know that the house will be empty for the night. So, she explains to the taxi driver that I will be out soon, 'He's just going upstairs to say Goodbye to my mother.'

A few minutes later, I get into the cab. 'Sorry I took so long,' I said, as we drove away. 'That stupid b**ch was hiding under the bed. I had to poke her azz with a coat hanger to get her to come out! She tried to take off, so I grabbed her by the neck. Then, I had to wrap her in a blanket to keep her from scratching me. But it worked! I hauled her fat azz downstairs and threw her out into the back yard!'

The cab driver hit a parked car

What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than 100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions: 

If:

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Is represented as:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

Then:

H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

And

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But , 

A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

And, 

B-U-L-L-S-H-I-T 
2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.

A-S-S-K-I-S-S-I-N-G
1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty, that While Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there, its the  Bullshit   and  Ass kissing  that will put you over the top.


And them's the facts of life, my friends. :)

While he did not want to appear insensitive, he didn't want to miss an opportunity he asked "Well, before you jump, why don't you give me a Kiss?"
 
So, she does and it was a long, deep lingering kiss.

One day a florist went to a barber for a haircut. After the cut, he asked about his bill, and the barber replied, 'I cannot accept money from you, I'm doing community service this week.' The florist was pleased and left the shop. When the barber went to open his shop the next morning, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door.

Later, a cop comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I cannot accept money from you , I'm doing community service this week.' The cop was happy and left the shop. The next morning when the barber went to open up, there was a 'thank you' card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Then a Congressman came in for a haircut, and when he went to pay his bill, the barber again replied, 'I can not accept money from you. I'm doing community service this week.' The Congressman was very happy and left the shop. The next morning, when the barber went to open up, there were a dozen Congressmen lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between the citizens of our country and the politicians who run it.

BOTH POLITICIANS AND DIAPERS NEED TO BE CHANGED OFTEN AND FOR THE SAME REASON!

 We never really grow up - we just learn how to act in public.

 Politicians and diapers have one thing in common -they both need to be changed frequently,

Two women were playing golf. One teed off and watched in horror as her ball headed directly toward a foursome of men playing the next hole.

The ball hit one of the men. He immediately clasped his hands together at his groin, fell to the ground and proceeded to roll around in agony.

The woman rushed down to the man, and immediately began to apologize.

'Please allow me to help. I'm a Physical Therapist and I know I could relieve your pain if you'd allow me,' she told him.

'Oh, no, I'll be all right. I'll be fine in a few minutes,' the man replied. He was in obvious agony, lying in the fetal position, still clasping his hands there at his groin.

At her persistence, however, he finally allowed her to help.. She gently took his hands away and laid them to the side, loosened his pants and put her hands inside.

She administered tender and artful massage for several long moments and asked, 'How does that feel'?

'Feels great,' he replied; 'but I still think my thumb's broken!'

An Irishman,  a Mexican and  a Blonde Guy were  doing construction work on scaffolding on the 20th floor of a building.

They were eating lunch and the Irishman said,'Corned beef and cabbage! If I get corned beef and cabbage one more time for lunch, I'm going to jump off this building.'

The Mexican opened his lunch box and exclaimed,  'Burritos again! If I get burritos one more time  I'm going to jump off, too.'

The blond opened his lunch and said, ' Bologna again!  If I get a bologna sandwich one more time, I'm jumping too..'

The next day, the Irishman opened his lunch box, saw corned beef and cabbage, and jumped to his death.

The Mexican opened his lunch, saw a burrito, and jumped, too.

The  blond guy opened his lunch, saw the bologna and jumped to his death as  well.

At  the funeral, the Irishman's wife was weeping. She said, 'If I'd known how really tired he was of corned beef and cabbage, I never would have given it to him again!'

The  Mexican's wife also wept and said, 'I could have given him tacos or enchiladas! I didn't realize he hated burritos so much.'

Consider the following case:

On Twin Earth, a brain in a vat is at the wheel of a runaway trolley. There are only two options that the brain can take: the right side of the fork in the track or the left side of the fork. There is no way in sight of derailing or stopping the trolley and the brain is aware of this, for the brain knows trolleys. The brain is causally hooked up to the trolley such that the brain can determine the course which the trolley will take.

On the right side of the track there is a single railroad worker, Jones, who will definitely be killed if the brain steers the trolley to the right. If the railman on the right lives, he will go on to kill five men for the sake of killing them, but in doing so will inadvertently save the lives of thirty orphans (one of the five men he will kill is planning to destroy a bridge that the orphans' bus will be crossing later that night). One of the orphans that will be killed would have grown up to become a tyrant who would make good utilitarian men do bad things. Another of the orphans would grow up to become G.E.M. Anscombe, while a third would invent the pop-top can.

If the brain in the vat chooses the left side of the track, the trolley will definitely hit and kill a railman on the left side of the track, "Leftie" and will hit and destroy ten beating hearts on the track that could (and would) have been transplanted into ten patients in the local hospital that will die without donor hearts. These are the only hearts available, and the brain is aware of this, for the brain knows hearts. If the railman on the left side of the track lives, he too will kill five men, in fact the same five that the railman on the right would kill. However, "Leftie" will kill the five as an unintended consequence of saving ten men: he will inadvertently kill the five men rushing the ten hearts to the local hospital for transplantation. A further result of "Leftie's" act would be that the busload of orphans will be spared. Among the five men killed by "Leftie" are both the man responsible for putting the brain at the controls of the trolley, and the author of this example. If the ten hearts and "Leftie" are killed by the trolley, the ten prospective heart-transplant patients will die and their kidneys will be used to save the lives of twenty kidney-transplant patients, one of whom will grow up to cure cancer, and one of whom will grow up to be Hitler. There are other kidneys and dialysis machines available, however the brain does not know kidneys, and this is not a factor.

Assume that the brain's choice, whatever it turns out to be, will serve as an example to other brains-in-vats and so the effects of his decision will be amplified. Also assume that if the brain chooses the right side of the fork, an unjust war free of war crimes will ensue, while if the brain chooses the left fork, a just war fraught with war crimes will result. Furthermore, there is an intermittently active Cartesian demon deceiving the brain in such a manner that the brain is never sure if it is being deceived.

QUESTION: What should the brain do?

[ALTERNATIVE EXAMPLE: Same as above, except the brain has had a commisurotomy, and the left half of the brain is a consequentialist and the right side is an absolutist.]

Philosophical Warning Labels

Solipsism Warning:

The consumer should be aware that he or she may be the only entity in
the universe, and therefore that any perceived defects in product
quality are the consumer's own fault.


Determinism Safety Advisory:

Every citizen be advised that despite the possibility that his or her
acts are all entirely predetermined by the blind mechanical nature of
the universe and are therefore unavoidable and inescapable, he or she
will still incur a legal responsibility and liability for any torts,
violations, misdemeanors, or felonies he or she commits.

Knowledge-Definition Warning:

Because knowledge is defined for the purpose of this product
literature as "justified true belief", the manufacturer cannot prove
that they "know" any of the information provided with this product to
be true, correct, complete, or consistent because they cannot
demonstrate their internal belief states through the principle of
Philosophic Privacy.

Cartesian Evil Genius Alert:

The reader is advised that he or she may be subject to an illusion
generated by an evil genius, and that his or her "sensory fibers" may
be falsely manipulated at any time with neither advance warning nor
any possible legal remedy.

Epistemological Denotation Warning:

The consumer must understand that due to the a-priori impossibility
of assuring a shared denotation amongst independent agents, none of
the advertising material, product literature, instructions, or safety
warnings (including this one), associated with this product may
contain what the consumer perceives to be factual information.

Non-Universal Ethics Notice:

Due to the possibility that a common notion of ethics are not
universally shared by all sentient beings, and that therefore the
manufacturer may have entirely different concept of "fairness",
"equity", "honesty", and "integrity" than the consumer, the consumer
should not expect the product purchased to conform in any way to the
advertised properties of the product.

Godelian Product Disclaimer:

As it has been proven that there are many true but unproveable
statements, the manufacturer cannot be held liable for any of its
unsupported product claims.

Penrose Addendum to Godelian Disclaimer:

Despite the above warning, the manufacturer is confident that all its
product claims are true because of its mystically acquired and
computationally unrepudiable organic intuition. Unfortunately, the
manufacturer cannot in any way demonstrate that its intuition is
correct, or indeed that it has an intuition.

Philosopher-General's Existentialist Tobacco Products Label:

Warning! this product has been found to cause cancer and emphysema,
and to lead to increased likelihood of strokes and heart
disease. However, as the Universe is a soulless waste inhabited by
unthinking machines it doesn't matter in the least whether you smoke
or not. Go ahead, light up, it's all the same to me if you live or
die.

A true story,

A man buys a brand new Grand Cherokee for $30,000+, and has $400.00+ in monthly payments. He's pretty proud of this rig and gets a hold of his friend to do some male bonding with the new ride. They go duck hunting and of course all the lakes are frozen. These two Atomic Brains go to the lake with their guns, the dog, the beer and of course the new vehicle.

They drive out onto the ice. Now, they want to make some kind of a natural landing area to attract ducks - something the decoys will float on.

Remember it's all ice, and in order to make a hole large enough to interest a flock of ducks - a hole big enough to entice ducks to land, they needed to use a little more than an ice hole drill...

Sooo, out of the back of the brand-new Jeep Grand Cherokee comes a stick of dynamite with a short 40-second fuse. Now to their credit, these two rocket scientists DID take into consideration that if they placed the stick of dynamite on the ice at a location far from where they (and the new Grand Cherokee) would be waiting and ran back quickly, they would risk slipping on the ice as they ran from the imminent explosion and could possibly go up in smoke with the resulting blast. After a little deliberation, they come up with lighting and THROWING the dynamite, which is what they end up doing.

Remember a couple of paragraphs back when I mentioned the vehicle, the beer, the guns AND THE DOG???? Yes, the dog. The driver's pet Black Lab (used for retrieving - especially things thrown by the owner). You guessed it, the dog takes off at a high rate of doggy speed on the ice, reaching the stick of dynamite with the burning 40-second fuse about the time it hits the ice - all to the woe of the two idiots which are now yelling, stomping, waving arms and wondering what the hell to do now...

The dog is happy and now heads back toward the "hunters" with the stick of dynamite. I think we all can picture the ever-increasing concern on the part of the brain trust, as the loyal Labrador Retriever approaches. The Bozos now are REALLY waving their arms - yelling even louder and generally feeling kinda panicked... Now finally one of the guys decides to think - something that neither had done before this moment, grabs a shotgun and shoots the dog. This sounds better than it really is, because the shotgun was loaded with #8 duck shot and hardly effective enough to stop a Black Lab. The dog DID stop for a moment, slightly confused, but then continued on. Another shot, and this time the dog - still standing, became REALLY confused & of course scared...

Thinking that these two Nobel Prize Winners have gone TOTALLY INSANE, the pooch takes off to find cover with a now extremely short fuse still burning on the stick of dynamite. The cover the dogs finds? Underneath the brand new Grand Cherokee worth 30-some thousand dollars the $400.00+ monthly payment vehicle that is sitting nearby on the lake ice.

BOOM! Dog dies, vehicle sinks to bottom of lake, and these two "Co-Leaders of the Known Universe" are left standing there with this "I can't EVEN believe this happened to me" look on their faces. Later, the owner of the vehicle calls his insurance company and is promptly informed that sinking a vehicle in a lake by illegal use of explosives is NOT covered on his policy...He had yet to make his first car payment.

A farmer stopped by the local mechanics shop to have his truck fixed. They couldn't do it while he waited, so he said he didn't live far and would just walk home.


On the way home he stopped at the hardware Store and bought a bucket and a gallon of paint. He then stopped by the feed store and picked up a couple of chickens and a goose. However, struggling outside the store he now had a problem - how to carry his entire purchases home..


While he was scratching his head he was approached by a little old lady who told him she was lost. She asked, 'Can you tell me how to get to 1603 Mockingbird Lane ?' The farmer said, 'Well, as a matter of fact, my farm is very close to that house I would walk you there but I can't carry this lot.' The old lady suggested, 'Why don't you put the can of paint in the bucket. Carry the bucket in one hand, put a chicken under each arm and carry the goose in your other hand?' 'Why thank you very much,' he said and proceeded to walk the old girl home.


On the way he says 'Let's take my short cut and go down this alley. We'll be there in no time.' The little old lady looked him over cautiously then said, 'I am a lonely widow without a husband to defend me.. How do I know that when we get in the alley you won't hold me up against the wall, and have your way with me?' The farmer said, 'Holy smokes lady! I'm carrying a bucket, a gallon of paint, two chickens, and a goose. How in the world could I possibly hold you up against the wall and do that?' The old lady replied, 'Set the goose down, cover him with the bucket, put the paint on top of the bucket, and I'll hold the chickens.

How do I know that when we get in the alley you won't hold me up against the wall, and have your way with me?' The farmer said, 'Holy smokes lady! I'm carrying a bucket, a gallon of paint, two chickens, and a goose. How in the world could I possibly hold you up against the wall and do that?' The old lady replied, 'Set the goose down, cover him with the bucket, put the paint on top of the bucket, and I'll hold the chickens.

Heard it before, it doesn't lose a thing with the retelling. :D

A good ole boy from West Virginia won a bass boat in a raffle drawing.  He brought it home and his wife looks at him and says,

"What'cha you gonna do with that there boat?  You know there ain't no water deep enough to float a boat within 100 miles of this here place."

He says, "I won it fair and I'm a gonna keep it."

His brother came over to visit several days later.  He sees the wife and asks her where his brother is.

She says, "He's out there in his bass boat", pointing to the field behind the house.

The brother heads out behind the house and sees his brother sitting in a bass boat down in the middle of a big field with a fishing rod in his hand.  He yells out to him, "What'cha doin’?"

His brother replies, "What the hell does it look like I'm a doin’?  I'm fishin'".

His brother yells back, "It's people like y’all that give people from West Virginia a bad name.  All y’all make folks from everywhere else think we is stupid.   If I could swim, I'd come on out there and whip your ass!"

Hank, the guy who knows everyone
Hank was bragging to his boss one day, "You know, I know everyone there is to know. Just name someone, anyone, and I know them." Tired of his boasting, his boss called his bluff, "OK, Hank how about Tom Cruise?"

"Sure, yes, Tom and I are old friends, and I can prove it."
So Hank and his boss fly out to Hollywood and knock on Tom Cruise's door, and sure enough, Tom Cruise, shouts, "Hank! Great to see you! You and your friend come right in and join me for lunch!"
Although impressed, Hank's boss is still skeptical. After they leave Cruise's house, he tells Hank that he thinks Hank's knowing Cruise was just lucky.

"No, no, just name anyone else," Hank says. ''President Obama," his boss quickly retorts. "Yes," Hank says, "I know him. His boss retorts if you can prove that you know him I'll fly out to Washington to see him."

And off they go. At the White House, Obama spots Hank on the tour and motions him and his boss over, saying, "Hank, what a surprise, I was just on my way to a meeting, but you and your friend come on in and let's have a cup of coffee first and catch up."
Well, the boss is very shaken by now, but still not totally convinced.

After they leave the White House grounds, he expresses his doubts to Hank, who again implores him to name anyone else. "The Pope," his boss replies.

"Sure!" says Hank. "I've known the Pope a long time."
Again the unconvinced boss flies them off to Rome. Hank and his boss are assembled with the masses in Vatican Square when Hank says, "This will never work. I can't catch the Pope's eye among all these people. Tell you what, I know all the guards so let me just go upstairs and I'll come out on the balcony with the Pope."

And he disappears into the crowd headed toward the Vatican. Sure enough, half an hour later Hank emerges with the Pope on the balcony.
But by the time Hank returns, he finds that his boss has had a heart attack and is surrounded by paramedics. Working his way to his boss's
side, Hank asks him, "What happened?" His boss looks up and says, "I was doing fine until you and the Pope came out on the balcony and the Japanese tourist next to me asked, 'Who's that on the balcony with Hank?'

One morning the Pope awoke, feeling kinda horny. So, he decides to take matters into his own hands. Just as he is finishing, a reporter busts into the room and takes his photo. The Pope, realizing he'll be ruined, runs after the reporter and begs him to give him the camera. The reporter says, "OK, I'll sell it to you for a million dollars." The pope quickly pays the reporter, puts the camera over his neck and rushes off to breakfast with the Bishops. One of them asks the Pope, "that's a nice camera, I have been considering one like it. Can you tell me how much it cost?" The Pope replies, "a million dollars." The bishop laughs loudly, exclaiming, "boy, they must have seen you coming!!"

The IRS decides to audit Ralph, and summons him to the IRS office. The
IRS auditor is not surprised when Ralph shows up with his attorney.


The auditor says, "Well, sir, you have an extravagant lifestyle and no
full-time employment, which you explain by saying that you win money
gambling. I'm not sure the IRS finds that believable."


"I'm a great gambler, and I can prove it," says Ralph.. "How about a
demonstration?"


The auditor thinks for a moment and said, "Okay. Go ahead."


Ralph says, "I'll bet you a thousand dollars that I can bite my own
eye."


The auditor thinks a moment and says, "No way! It's a bet."


Ralph removes his glass eye and bites it.


The auditor's jaw drops.


Ralph says, "Now, I'll bet you two thousand dollars that I can bite my
other eye."


The auditor can tell Ralph isn't blind, so he takes the bet.


Ralph removes his dentures and bites his good eye.


The stunned auditor now realizes he has wagered and lost three grand,
with Ralph's attorney as a witness. He starts to get nervous.


"Want to go double or nothing?" Ralph asks. "I'll bet you six thousand
dollars that I can stand on one side of your desk, and pee into that
wastebasket on the other side, and never get a drop anywhere in
between."


The auditor, twice burned, is cautious now, but he looks carefully and
decides there's no way this guy can manage that stunt, so he agrees
again.


Ralph stands beside the desk and unzips his pants, but although he
strains mightily, he can't make the stream reach the wastebasket on
other side, so he pretty much urinates all over the desk.


The auditor leaps with joy, realizing that he has just turned a major
loss into a huge win. But Ralph's attorney moans and puts his head in
his hands.


"Are you okay?" the auditor asks. "Not really," says the
attorney. "This morning, when Ralph told me he'd been summoned for an
audit, he bet me twenty thousand dollars that he could come in here and
pee all over your desk and that you'd be happy about it."

A man was pulled over for speeding down the highway; the officer came to the driver’s window and said, “Sir, may I see your driver’s license and registration?”

The man said, “Well officer I don’t have a license, it was taken away for a DUI.”

The officer, in surprise, said,” What? Do you have a registration for the vehicle?”

So the man replied, “No sir, the car is not mine I stole it, but I am pretty sure I seen a registration card in the glove box when I put the gun in it.”

The officer stepped back, “There is a gun in the glove box?!"

The man sighed and said, “Yes sir, I used it to kill the woman who owns the car before I stuffed her in the trunk.”

The officer calls for backup and about ten minutes another highway patrolman arrives. He walks up to the window slowly and asks the man for his driver’s license and registration. The man said,” Yes officer here it right here.” It all checked out so the officer said,” Is there a gun in the glove box sir?” The man laughs and says,” No officer why would there be a gun in the glove box.” He opened the glove box and showed him that there was no gun. The second officer asked him to open the trunk because he had reason to believe that there was a body in it. The man agrees and opens the trunk, no dead body.

The second officer says, “Sir I do not understand, the officer that pulled you over said that you did not have a license, the car was stolen, there was a gun in the glove box, and a dead body in the trunk.”

The man looks the officer in the eyes and says, “Yeah and I’ll bet he said I was speeding too.

OK, this was posted to the rec.music.early newsgroup years ago, hence the "references" tend to be Early Music inspired:

THE MAD REGALIST

Last week I was leaving my favorite restaurant, the Crumb & Horn, near the Nickel Haus at the Harnon Court. I was admiring my new, Italian-made, Gonzaga Green mountain bike (on which I chitarrone quite well).  Then I heard, faintly at first, someone calling my name (it was very hard to hear, but then you can missa lot of things because of the traffic and Busnois).  I turned toward the voice and spotted none other than John Eliot (the Gardener), limping through the traffic toward me like he had just gotten a HIP implant.

"Be careful!" I said as an auto swerved around him.  "I Wilbye there soon."

When I got to him, JEG didn't look well.  "I was almost run over.  I wonder if the driver of that Carissimi?  But...but....OCKEGHEM!!" 

"Bless you," I said. 

"Sorry," was the reply.  "I've had this contrefactum for days, and am only now re-Couperin.  I got it from June Fillette, I'm Certon of that.  And she has such a virginal face, too.  I had hoped to get her into the sack-but that's not why I wanted to talk with you."

"What's the trouble then?" I asked.

"Well," said JEG, "I've just now heard the most tremendous rackett coming from the Church, which made my blood curtal.  It sounded like someone singing, accompanied by some instrument I've never heard before.  It gave me the feeling that it came from another world, so when I saw you, I thought that the two of us together could Handel whatever we find there."

"Thanks a lot, I was afraid you'd say that," I sighed.

As we approached the Church, (the Holy Madonna of Lower Yonkers, or as we all knew it, the Holy M.O.L.Y.), I became aware of a most unique music coming from inside.  It literally chilled me down to my organum.  I recognized that voice immediately!  Dropping my bike, I ran to the church doors, pushed them open, ran up the balcony to the upper Tear, and found....The Infamous  Herr Dr. Weghe!  I immediately knew it was him from his most un-Rooley hair and the Perotin trousers he wore, as he stroked a strange little instrument that gave a most reedy timbre.  And his Parrott-like singing voice combined with it in an absolutely diabolical fashion. 

"Aha, we meet again, Doctor!" I exclaimed.  "What is that instrument, and why are you here playing it?"

"My dear friend, it's a regal," the Doctor replied.  "And since I Emma virtuoso, I will perform on it to pay my arrears and earn great acclaim and wealth.  Here, let Machaut you how it works."  But as he tried to Sheppard me over to the regal, I pulled my hand away.  "Tallis what you will, Doctor, but I know better," I said.  "It's really Pärt of your scheme to take over the World and eventually make everybody listen to accordion Music, isn't it?" 

"You are much less of a Dunstable type than I would have imagined, sir," the Doctor replied.  "But I Dufay you or anyone else to stop me!"

"Rommelpot!  You're mad.  Maybe I can't stop you," I retorted, "But the President of our early music society is Joe Skan, whom we call Da Prez.  He'll make sure that nobody will Sweelinck your story.  If what you do does P.A.N. out, you could earn a lot of lute.  But if it doesn't, there will be no Haydn from us, because we can always Telemann in a lot O'Dette who's running from the Savall Renaissance Music for Posterity Society!"

"I would Figueras much," came the reply....

As we left the church, John Eliot and I were frustrated to say the least.  Herr Weghe had made perfect LeClair his intentions.  Dessus not what we had expected.  "Canti be stopped?" John wondered.  We knew of the hypnotic allure of his regal, and how it would be twelve short steps to forcing accordion music on everybody.  "Let's go find our friend Mark Carpenter.  He'll know how to proceed," I suggested just as the music we had heard in the church started again, but this time played on an accordion, and coming from the street.  Then I saw Herr Weghe, playing as if he had no Kiehr in the world. 

This music was definitely French Baroque, but with a strange familiar Latin beat underneath (dum, da-da-da dum, dum...).  "That's some mean tone," John commented.  Eventually, I was able to Pickett out as the infamous "Lully-Bolero".  It made my head hurt to hear it, but I had no Asperen with me.  Even worse, the effect it had on others made my hair Kerll.  I watched as everyone on the street, including the neighborhood matriarchs Mrss. Rin and Ray (known to all as "Ma" Rin and "Ma" Ray) start dancing to the music's hypnotic beat.  Not wanting to have a bransle on my hands, I shouted at Weghe, but instead of stopping his accordion, I watched him Huggett to his body as he ran down the sidewalk faster than a Byrd on the wing.  Leaving John Eliot behind, I began to chase Herr Weghe.

Past the  Cash 'n' Caurroy, over the Hill Yard and the Guarneri Bridge, through the Harnon Court we ran.  Passing the Monument for the Dead of the Vibrato Wars, he eluded me by ducking into the Arbeauretum.  I was nearly Besard myself when I spied a familiar figure, cigar sticking out of his mouth, in a rumpled, un-Rooley trenchcoat while Leonin on a streetpost.  It was Lieutenant Sainte-Colombo, of the Visse Squad! "Can you help?" I called out.  "You got it, Macque" he said, closing in behind me. 

We entered the Arbeauretum, but our Hunt quickly Graun to a halt.  Suddenly, we heard growling and barking ahead.  Running through a stand of Bachswood trees, we found Herr Weghe cornered, Haydn his face from a stocky dog whose face and body were incredibly wrinkled.  It Baird its teeth at Weghe as if it wanted to Goebel him up.  I then noticed good ol' Mark Carpenter holding back the dog, which was evidently his.  Soon, John Eliot and his friend June Fillette rode up on John's Italian motor scooter (John was famous for using olive oil in its crankcase, so it was naturally called the Vespa Della Beate Extra Vergine).  "I wanted to find June to help on the chase," he explained.  "I didn't know where she was, so I called and luckily was able to ricercar phone."

As Lt. Sainte-Colombo put on the handcuffs, Herr Weghe tried to explain.  "Curses!  I never Minter hurt anyone, but you people did Muffat for me--I just wanted to make some lute, that's all." 

"Bull!" I said.  "You may have taken a Schein to the money, but you fagott that regaling in public  viol-ates the Lawes of good taste.  And what's Morley, your plan for world dominants never diminished.  I saw Eustache that accordion in your trousers when I chased you.  Lawrence Weelkes you're not!  You should Frye for this, but we'll have to be satisfied to Locke you up for good." 

Later, we all met at the tavern owned by Joe Skan for ice-cold bottles of Heinichen and Watkins Ale.  ["Da Prez"  had built an artificial stream running through the place that turned a moaning mill water wheel, hence the tavern's name:  Mill o' Regrets]. 

"Hautbois the way," Lt. Sainte-Colombo asked me, "How did you Tye Herr Weghe's dastardly plan to the music?"

"It wasn't easy," I replied.  "I don't want tabor you with the de tailles, but I knew things weren't Picchi keen when John Eliot told me about the music he heard.  I thought he'd went Encina ghost!  But the 'Lully-Bolero' gave it all away.  Still, I Otter give credit to you Mark, and your remarkable dog.  Where did you get her?"

"Oh, you mean Ti-Yay," said Mark with a smile.  "These Chinese Shar-Pei dogs are way too expensive for me to have Bott one myself.  But my Aunt Montserrat won her in a raffle and gave the dog to me..." 

Thus it was that Herr Weghe and his plans to conquer the world were thwarted, not least by Mark's Aunt-Won Shar-Pei Ti-Yay...

   Why God never received a Ph. D.

  1.  He had only one publication .

  2. It was in Hebrew .

  3. It had no references .

  4. It wasn't published in a refereed journal .

  5. Some doubt that he wrote it himself .

  6. It may be true that he created the world , but what has he done since then ?

  7.  His cooperative efforts have been quite limited .

  8. The scientific community has had a hard time replicating his results .

 9.  He never applied to the ethics board  to use human subjects .

 10.  When one experiment went awry , he tried to cover it up by drowning his subjects .

11. When subjects  didn't behave as predicted , he deleted them from the sample .

12. He rarely went to class , and just told his students to read his book.

13. Some say he had his son teach the class .

14.  He expelled his first two students for learning .

15. Although there were only ten course requirements, most of his students failed his tests .

16. His office hours were infrequent and usually held on a mountain top .

Hope Scots John checks this thread out from time to time, this one's for him;

Bagpiper at a Funeral


As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently, I was asked by a Funeral Director to play at a grave-side service for a homeless man.  He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a Pauper's' cemetery in the back country.

As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost, and, being a typical man, I didn't stop for directions.

I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight.  There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch.

I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in place. I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play.

The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played like I've never played before for this homeless man.

And as I played 'Amazing Grace,' the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full.

As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, "I never seen nothin' like that before and I've been puttin’ in septic tanks for 20 years."

Apparently, I'm still lost....

"What happened to you?" asked the doctor.

"Well it all started when my wife and I were golfing and by accident she hit the ball into a cow field. When we went to investigate, I saw the ball in a cows ass. I went and lifted the tail of the cow and thats when I made my mistake."

The doctor looked puzzled and asked, "What mistake was that?"

How To Write Good (http://homepage.mac.com/mseffie/handouts/writegood.html)

by Frank L. Visco
My several years in the word game have learnt me several rules:

Avoid alliteration. Always.
Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.
Avoid cliches like the plague. (They're old hat.)
Employ the vernacular.
Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.
Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary.
It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.
Contractions aren't necessary.
Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.
One should never generalize.
Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said: "I hate quotations. Tell me what you know."
Comparisons are as bad as cliches.
Don't be redundant; don't more use words than necessary; it's highly superfluous.
Profanity sucks.
Be more or less specific.
Understatement is always best.
Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.
One-word sentences? Eliminate.
Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.
The passive voice is to be avoided.
Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.
Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.
Who needs rhetorical questions?

Ouch!

Thread Duty:

This is a story I once heard in St Petersburg.

On a call-in radio show, once of the hosts referred to a traditional Russian saying, A guest who over-stays his welcome is worse than a Tartar. Anyone who has listened to Prokofiev's Aleksandr Nevsky, which opens with the brooding “Russia Beneath the Mongol Yoke,” will get the allusion.

Well, this was in the days of the Soviet Union, when many non-Russian republics were (will they or nil they) part of the Union; and there were always citizens from the various Soviet republics residing in “both of the capitals,” Moscow & St Petersburg.  So, not all that surprisingly, a fellow from one of the central Asian republics calls in, and complains. “Comrades, all of our peoples are brothers in devotion to the wonderful principles of Marxism-Leninism, and we are all united in the struggle against the evils of the capitalist warlords which continue to lay waste to the decadent West. Yet here you are making fun of, not to put too fine a point on it, people of my own ancestry with remarks like A guest who over-stays his welcome is worse than a Tartar.  Well, why pick on the Tartars? I wish we could change things for the better.”

“All right,” conceded the host. “What if we say instead, A guest who over-stays his welcome is . . . better than a Tartar!

While out one morning in the park, a jogger found a brand new tennis ball, and seeing no one around it might belong to, he slipped it into the pocket of his shorts.

Later, on his way home, he stopped at the pedestrian crossing, waiting for the lights to change.

A blonde standing next to him eyed the large bulge in his shorts. "What's that?" she asked, her eyes gleaming with lust.

"Tennis ball," came the breathless reply.

"Oh," said the blonde sympathetically, "That must be painful. I had tennis elbow once."

A  motorcycle police officer stops a driver for shooting through a red light. The driver is a real bastard, steps out of his car and comes striding toward the officer, demanding to know why he is being harassed by the Gestapo!

So the officer calmly tells him of the red light violation. The motorist instantly goes on a tirade, questioning the officer's ancestry,  sexual orientation, etc., in rather explicit offensive terms.

The tirade goes on without the officer saying anything.

When the officer finishes writing the ticket he puts an "AH" in the lower right corner of the narrative portion of the ticket. He then hands it to The 'violator' for his signature. The guy signs the ticket angrily, and when presented with his copy points to the "AH" and demands to know what it stands for.

The officer says, "That's so when we go to court, I'll remember that you're an asshole!"

Two months later they're in court. The 'violator' has a bad driving record with a high number of points and is in danger of losing his license, so he hired a lawyer to represent him.

On the stand the officer testifies to seeing the man run through the red light.

Under cross examination the defense attorney asks; "Officer is this a reasonable facsimile of the ticket that you issued to my client?"

Officer responds, "Yes, sir, that is the defendant's copy, his signature and mine, same number at the top."

Lawyer: "Officer, is there any particular marking or notation on this ticket you don't normally make?"

"Yes, sir, in the lower right corner of the narrative there is an "AH," underlined."

"What does the "AH" stand for, officer?"

"Aggressive and hostile, Sir."

"Aggressive and hostile?"

"Yes, Sir.

"Officer, are you sure it doesn't stand for asshole?"

Well, sir, you know your client better than I do.

A psychiatrist was conducting a group therapy session with four young mothers and their small children. 'You all have obsessions,' he observed.

To the first mother, Mary, he said, 'You are obsessed with eating. You've even named your daughter Candy.'

He turned to the second mother, Ann: 'Your obsession is with money. Again it manifests itself in your child's name, Penny.'

He turned to the third mother, Kathy: 'Your obsession is alcohol. This too shows itself in your child's name, Brandy.'

At this point, the fourth mother, Joyce, quietly got up, took her little boy by the hand and whispered... 'Come on Dick, this guy has no idea what he's talking about. Let’s pick Willy up from school and go home!

While he may not have written it himself, this comes courtesy of comedic genius Philip Proctor:

=====

A brunette goes into a doctor's office and tells the doctor that her body hurts wherever she touches it.

“Impossible,” says the doctor. “Show me.”

She takes her finger, presses it on her elbow, and screams in agony. She pushes her finger on her knee and screams, pushes her ankle and screams, and so it goes on; everywhere she touches makes her scream with pain.

The doctor says, “You're not really a brunette are you?”

She says, “No, I dyed my hair. I'm naturally blonde.”

“I thought so,” He says. “Your finger is broken.”

Question: What happened to the man who stole the rhubarb?

Answer: He was held in custody.

(Get it?)

Told to me by one of my school pupils.

I mentioned this earlier on in the thread (on November 10th 2009 to be precise) but as it's a very sophisticated joke I thought it worth repeating. You will all think that I only know one joke!  ???

PS to prove that this is not true here is my other joke from eight years ago:

As a child I always wanted a skate-board and I begged my parents to get me one. Over and over again I asked them but there was always some reason why I couldn't have a skateboard. Anyway, I was so fed up with waiting for a skate-board that, one night, I crept downstairs and got some planks of wood and a hammer from the shed and battered my parents to death.
My foster parents bought me several skateboards.

Excellent! I wonder which came first - this or Mark Steele. He did a series on scientists in history. The other one which made me laugh was, while dresseh up as Newton with a 'Newton's Cradle' in front of him he demonstrated his theory of gravity not by using it but by smashing the whole thing into a vase at the end of the table.

Here is Mark Steel's lecture on Freud.
I put an extraneous 'e' on his name in earlier posts:

adding to my collection of Jewish Jokes (stolen from Gilbert Gottfried - um, don't tell it if you're not Jewish?):

A Jewish couple goes to the doctor because they're having trouble in the bedroom. The doctor says, "there's an operation I can do on the husband that'll change everything. If you get it, it'll fix all the troubles with your sex-life. You'll be delighted. The operation will cost 900$. I want you to go home and think about this and come back tomorrow and tell me your decision. It costs 900$, but it will transform your love-making."
The next day the couple comes back and the doctor asks them what they've decided.
They reply, "we've decided to redo the kitchen cabinets."
