sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip

God decides it all way before, and you got to find out later who you're stuck with."

An old lady is rocking away the last of her days on her front porch, reflecting
on her long life, when --all of a sudden-- a fairy godmother appears in front of her and
informs her that she will be granted three
wishes. "Well, now," says the old lady, "I guess I would like to be really
Her rocking chair turns to solid gold.
"And...gee, I guess I wouldn't mind being a young, beautiful
She turns into a beautiful young woman.
"Your third wish?" asks the fairy godmother.
Just then the old woman's cat wanders across the porch in front of them.
"Ooh, can you change him into a handsome prince?" she asks.
There before her stands a young man more handsome than anyone could possibly
imagine. She stares at him, smitten. With a smile that makes her knees weak, he saunters
across the porch and whispers in her ear.
"I bet you're sorry you had me neutered."
FOUR strangers traveled together in the same
compartment of a European train. Two men and two women faced each other.
One woman was a very wealthy and sophisticated 75 year old lady who was decked
out in the finest of furs and jewelry. Next to her sat a beautiful young woman, nineteen
yrs. old--who looked like something right off the cover of a fashion magazine. Across from
the older lady was a man in his late-forties who was a highly decorated Sergeant Major in
the Army. And next to the Sergeant Major sat a young private fresh out of boot camp.
As these four strangers traveled, they talked and chatted about trivial things
until they entered an unlighted tunnel, and there they sat in complete darkness and total
silence, until the sound of a distinct kiss broke the silence; following the kiss a loud
slap could be heard throughout the cabin. In the ensuing period of silence the four
strangers sat quietly with their own thoughts.
The older lady was thinking, "Isn't it wonderful that even in this
permissive day and age there are still young women who have a little self-respect and
The young woman, shaking her head and greatly puzzled, asked herself, "Why in the
world would any man in his right mind want to kiss an old fossil like that when I'm
The Sergeant Major, rubbing his sore face, was outraged that any woman could ever
think that a man in his position would try to sneak a kiss in the dark.
And the private, grinning from ear to ear, was thinking, "What a crazy and
mixed up world this is when a private can kiss the back of his hand and then smack a
Sergeant Major in the face and get away with it!"
One Friday morning, a teacher came up with a novel way
to motivate her class. She told them that she would read a quote and the first student to
correctly identify who said it would receive the rest of the day off.
She started with "This was England's finest hour."
Little Suzy instantly jumped up and said, " Winston Churchill."
"Congratulations said the teacher you may go home." The teacher then
said, "Ask not what your country can do for you." Before she could finish this
quote, another young lady belts out, "John F. Kennedy".
"Very good" says the teacher, "you may go."
Irritated that he has missed two golden opportunities, Little Johnny said,
"I wish those little twits would just shut the hell up."
Upon overhearing this rude comment, the outraged teacher demanded to know who
said it. Johnny instantly rose to his feet and said, "Bill Clinton."
"I'll see you Monday..."
An elderly man was walking through the French
countryside, admiring the beautiful spring day, when over a hedgerow he spotted a young
couple making love in a field. Getting over his initial shock he said to himself,
"Ah, young love... ze spring time, ze air, ze flowers... C'est magnifique!" and
continued to watch, remembering good times.
Suddenly he drew in a gasp and said, "Mais... Sacre bleu! Ze woman - she
is dead!" and he hurried along as fast as he could to the town to tell Jean, the
police chief. He came, out of breath, to the police station and shouted, "Jean...Jean
zere is zis man, zis woman ... in farmer Gaston's field making love."
The police chief smiled and said; "Come, come, Henri you are not so old;
remember ze young love, ze spring time, ze air, ze flowers? Ah, L'amour! Zis is
"Mais non! You do not understand; ze woman, she is dead!" Hearing
this, Jean leapt up from his seat, rushed out of the station, jumped on his bike, pedaled
down to the field, confirmed Henri's story, and pedaled all the way back non-stop to call
the doctor: "Pierre, Pierre,
... this is Jean, I was in Gaston's field; zere is a young couple making love. "
To which Pierre replied,"Jean, I am a man of science. You must remember,
it is spring, ze air, ze flowers, Ah, L'amour! Zis is very natural." Jean, still out
of breath, grasped in reply, "NON, you do not understand; ze woman, she is
Hearing this, Pierre exclaimed, "Mon dieu!" grabbed his black
medicine bag; stuffed in his thermometer, stethoscope, and other tools; jumped in the car;
and drove like a madman down to Gaston's field. After
carefully examining the participants he drove calmly back to Henri and Jean, who were
waiting at the station. He got there, went inside, smiled patiently, and said, "Ah,
mes amis, do not worry. Ze woman, she is not dead, she is British"
Once upon a time, a perfect man and a perfect
woman met. After a perfect courtship, they had a perfect wedding. Their life together was,
of course, perfect. One snowy, stormy Christmas Eve, this perfect couple was driving their
perfect car (a Ferrari 355) along a winding
road, when they noticed someone at the side of the road in distress.
Being the perfect couple, they stopped to help. There stood Santa Claus with a
huge bundle of toys. Not wanting to disappoint any children on the eve of Christmas, the
perfect couple loaded Santa and his toys into their vehicle. Soon they were driving along
delivering the toys.
Unfortunately, the driving conditions deteriorated and the perfect couple and Santa Claus
had an accident. Only one of them survived the accident. Who was the survivor? (Scroll
down for the answer.)
The perfect woman survived. She's the only one who really existed in the first
place. Everyone knows there is no Santa Claus and there is no such thing as a perfect man.
stop reading here, that is the end of the joke.
****Men keep scrolling.
So, if there is no perfect man and no Santa Claus, the perfect woman must have
been driving. This explains why there was a car accident. By the way, if you're a woman
and you're reading this, it illustrates
another point. Women never listen either.
More Clinton, Yes, More Clinton
Chrysler Corporation is adding a new car to its line to honor Bill Clinton. The
Dodge Draft will begin production in Canada this year.
When Clinton was asked what he thought about foreign affairs, he replied,
"I don't know. I never had one."
If you came across Bill Clinton struggling in a raging river and you had a
choice between rescuing him or getting a Pulitzer prize-winning photograph, what shutter
speed would you use?
Clinton's mother prayed fervently that Bill would grow up and be president. So
far, half of her prayer has been answered.
The American Indians have nicknamed Bill Clinton as "Walking Eagle"
because he is so full of _ _ _ _ that he can't fly.
Isn't putting Bill Clinton in charge of a trust fund as insane as putting in a
draft-dodger as Commander in Chief?
Clinton only lacks three things to become one of America's finest leaders:
Integrity, vision, and wisdom.
Asked about his views on euthanasia, Clinton replied, "Youth in Asia are
just like kids everywhere else."
Clinton is doing the work of 3 men: Larry, Curly, and Moe.
Did you hear what Gennifer Flowers said when asked if her relations with Bill
Clinton were similar to Monica's? "Close but no cigar!"
A lady approaches her priest and tells him, "Father, I have a problem. I
have two female talking parrots, but they only know how to say one thing"
"What do they say?" the priest inquired.
"They only know how to say, 'Hi we're the (fun girls)*. Do you want to
have some fun?'"
"That's terrible!" the priest exclaimed, "but I have a solution
to your problem. Bring your two female parrots over to my house and I will put them with
my two male talking parrots who I taught to pray and read the bible. My parrots will teach
your parrots to stop saying that
phrase and your female parrots will learn to praise and worship."
"Thank you!" the woman responded.
The next day, the lady brings her female parrots to the priest's house. His two
male parrots are holding rosary beads and praying in their cage. The lady puts her female
parrots in with the male parrots and the female parrots say, "Hi, we're the (fun
girls)*. Do you want to
have some fun?"
One male parrot looks over at the other male parrot and exclaims, "Put the
beads away. Our prayers have been answered!"

Subject: 1812 overture - please don't try this at home
August, 1998, Montevideo, Uruguay
Paolo Esperanza, bass-trombonist with the Simphonica Mayor de Uruguay, in a
misplaced moment of inspiration decided to make his own contribution to the cannon shots
fired as part of the orchestra's performance of Tchaikovsky's 1812 Overture at an outdoor
concert. In complete seriousness he placed a large, ignited firecracker, which was
equivalent in strength to a quarter stick of dynamite, into his aluminum straight mute and
then stuck the mute into the bell of his quite new Yamaha in-line double-valve bass
Later, from his hospital bed he explained to a reporter through bandages on his
mouth, "I thought that the bell of my trombone would shield me from the explosion and
instead, would focus the energy of the blast outwards and away from me, propelling the
mute high above
the orchestra, like a rocket." However, Paolo was not up on his propulsion physics
nor qualified to use high-powered artillery and in his haste to get the horn up before the
firecracker went off, he failed to raise the bell of the horn high enough so as to give
the mute enough arc to clear the orchestra.
What actually happened should serve as a lesson to us all during those
delirious moments of divine inspiration. First, because he failed to sufficiently elevate
the bell of his horn, the blast propelled the mute between rows of players in the woodwind
and viola sections of the
orchestra, missing the players and straight into the stomach of the conductor, driving him
off the podium and directly into the front row of the audience.
Fortunately, the audience were sitting in folding chairs and thus they were
protected from serious injury, for the chairs collapsed under them passing the energy of
the impact of the flying conductor backwards into row of people sitting behind them, who
in turn were driven back into the people in the row behind and so on, like a row of
dominos. The sound of collapsing wooden chairs and grunts of people falling on their
behinds increased logarithmically, adding to the overallsound of brass cannons and brass
playing as constitutes the closing
measures of the Overture.
Meanwhile, all of this unplanned choreography not withstanding, back on stage
Paolo's Waterloo was still unfolding. According to Paolo, "Just as the I heard the
sound of the blast, time seemed to stand still. Everything moved in slow motion. Just
before I felt searing pain to my mouth, I could swear I heard a voice with a Austrian
accent say "Fur every akshon zer iz un eekvul un opposeet reakshon!" Well, this
should come as no surprise, for Paolo had set himself up for a textbook demonstration of
this fundamental law of physics. Having failed to plug the lead pipe of his trombone, he
allowed the energy of the blast to send a super heated jet of gas backwards through the
mouth pipe of the trombone which exited the mouthpiece burning his lips and face.
The pyrotechnic ballet wasn't over yet. The force of the blast was so great it
split the bell of his shiny Yamaha right down the middle, turning it inside out while at
the same time propelling Paolo backwards off the riser. And for the grand finale, as Paolo
fell backwards he lost his grip on the slide of the trombone allowing the pressure of the
hot gases coursing through the horn to propel the trombone's slide like a double golden
spear into the head of the 3rd clarinetist, knocking him unconscious.
The moral of the story? Beware the next time you hear someone in the trombone
section yell out "Hey, everyone, watch this!
In the pre-Thanksgiving rush, we have received an early weather report from our
in-house weather reporters. This is one, you should be sure to email your Mom.
Turkeys will thaw in the morning, then warm in the oven to an afternoon high
near 190F. The kitchen will turn hot and humid, and if you bother the cook, be ready for a
severe squall or cold shoulder.
During the late afternoon and evening, the cold front of a knife will slice
through the turkey, causing an accumulation of one to two inches on plates. Mashed
potatoes will drift across one side while cranberry
sauce creates slippery spots on the other. Please pass the gravy. A weight watch and
indigestion warning have been issued for the entire area, with increased stuffiness around
the beltway. During the evening, the turkey will diminish and taper off to leftovers,
dropping to a low of 34F in the refrigerator.
Looking ahead to Friday and Saturday, high pressure to eat sandwiches will be
established. Flurries of leftovers can be expected both days with a 50 percent chance of
scattered soup late in the day. We expect a warming trend where soup develops. By early
eating pressure will be low as the only wish left will be the bone.
A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can
see from her name plate that the teller's name is Patricia Whack. So he says, "Ms.
Whack, I'd like to get a loan to buy a boat and go on a long vacation."
Patti looks at the frog in disbelief and asks how much he
wants to borrow.
The frog says $30,000.
The teller asks his name and the frog says that his name is Kermit Jagger and
that it's OK, he knows the bank manager.
Patti explains that $30,000 is a substantial amount of money and that he will
need to secure some collateral against the loan. She asks if he has anything he can use as
collateral. The frog says, "Sure. I have this," and produces a tiny pink
porcelain elephant, about half an inch tall, Bright pink and perfectly formed.
Very confused, Patti explains that she'll have to consult with the manager and
disappears into a back office. She finds the manager and says:
"There's a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know you and
wants to borrow $30,000. And he wants to use this as collateral." She holds up the
tiny pink elephant. "I mean, what on earth is this?"
So the bank manager looks back at her and says: "It's a knick knack, Patti
Whack. Give the frog a loan. His old man's a Rolling Stone."

Woman: "Both. You go to yours and I'll go to mine."
Man: "I'd like to call you. What's your number?"
Woman: "It's in the phone book."
Man: "But I don't know your name."
Woman: "That's in the phone book too."
Man: "So what do you do for a living?"
Woman: "I'm a female impersonator."
Man: "Hey, baby, what's your sign?"
Woman: "Do not Enter"

Woman: "Then please leave me alone."

Woman: "Sorry, I don't accept cheap gifts."
Man: "If I could see you naked, I'd die happy.
Woman: "Yeah, but if I saw you naked, I'd probably die laughing."
Man: "Your body is like a temple."
Woman: "Sorry, there are no services today."
Man: "I'd go through anything for you."

A UM grad decides he wants to raise chickens. So he goes to the feed store,
buys a bunch of baby chicks, plants 'em feet-first in the ground, and, sadly, after a
couple of days, they die.
He figures he's doing something wrong, so he goes back to the feed store and
buys more chicks. This time he plants 'em headfirst, and they die even faster.
The UM grad is now at his wit's end, so he decides to write to his alma mater,
tell them what he's doing, and see if maybe they have any suggestions.
Two weeks later, he gets a note back from UM asking for a soil sample.

"Three Vampires at the Bar"
Three vampires went into a bar and sat down. The barmaid came over to take
their orders. "And what would you, er, gentlemen like tonight?"
The first vampire said, "I'll have a mug of blood." The second
vampire said, "I'll have a mug of blood."
The third vampire shook his head at his companions and said, "I will have
a glass of plasma."
The barmaid wrote down each order, went to the bar and called to the bartender,
"Two bloods and a blood light!"
And Still More Bat Stuff...
"A Bloody Nose"
A vampire bat came flapping in from the night covered in fresh blood and parked
himself on the roof of the cave to get some sleep.
Pretty soon all the other bats smelled the blood and began hassling him about
where he got it. He told them to go away and let him get some sleep. However, the bats
persisted until finally he gave in.
"OK, follow me," he said and flew out of the cave with hundreds of
bats behind him. Down through a valley they went, across a river and into a forest full of
trees. Finally he slowed down and all the other bats excitedly milled around him.
"Now, do you see that tree over there?" he asked.
"Yes, yes, yes!" the bats all screamed in a hungry frenzy.
"Good," said the first bat tiredly, "Because I didn't!"

This woman goes into a funeral home to make
arrangements for her husband's funeral. She tells the director that she wants her husband
to be buried in a dark blue suit.
He asks, "Wouldn't it just be easier to bury him in the black suit that
he's wearing?" But she insists that it
must be a blue suit and gives him a blank check to buy one. When she comes back for the
wake, she sees her husband in the coffin and he is wearing a beautiful blue suit. She
tells the director how much she loves the suit and asks how much it cost.
He says, "Actually, it didn't cost anything. The funniest thing happened.
As soon as you left, another corpse was brought in, this one wearing a blue suit. I
noticed that they were about the same size, and asked the other widow if she would mind if
her husband were buried in a black suit. She said that was fine with her. So... I switched

Not long ago and far away, Santa was getting ready for his annual trip...but
there were problems everywhere. Four of his elves got sick, and the trainee elves did not
produce the toys as fast as the regular ones so Santa was beginning to feel the pressure
of being behind
Then Mrs. Claus told Santa that her mom was coming to
visit. This stressed Santa even more. When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that
three of them were about to give birth and two had jumped the fence and were out, heaven
knows where. More Stress.
Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the boards cracked and the toy
bag fell to the ground and scattered the toys. Totally frustrated, Santa went into the
house for a cup of coffee and a shot of whiskey.
When he went to the cupboard, he found the elves had hit the liquor and there
was nothing to drink. In his frustration, he dropped the coffee pot and it broke into
hundreds of little pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found
that mice had
eaten the straw it was made from.
Just then the doorbell rang and Santa cussed on his way to the door. He opened
the door and there was a little angel with a great big Christmas tree. The angel said:
"Where would you like to put this tree fat man?"
And that my friend, is how the little angel came to be on top of the Christmas

Subject: just keep on coming in... An engineer
dies and reports to the pearly gates. St. Peter checks his dossier and says, "Ah,
you're an engineer - you're in the wrong place." So the engineer reports to the gates
of hell and is let in. Pretty soon, the engineer gets dissatisfied
with the level of comfort in hell, and starts designing and building improvements. After a
while, they've got air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators, and the engineer is
becoming a pretty popular guy.
One day God calls Satan up on the telephone and asks with a sneer, "So,
how's it going down there in hell?" Satan replies, "Hey, things are going great.
We've got air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators, and there's no telling what this
engineer is going to come up with next."
God replies, "What??? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake - he should never have
gotten down there; send him up here." Satan says, "No way! I like having an
engineer on the staff, and I'm keeping him." God says, "Send him back up here or
Satan laughs uproariously and answers, "Yeah right. And just where are YOU
