Yesterday I was at my local COSTCO buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my loyal pet, Jake the Wonder Dog, and was in the check-out line when a woman behind me asked if I had a dog.
What did she think, I had an elephant?
So since I'm retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her that no, I didn't have a dog, I was starting the Purina Diet again. I added that I probably shouldn't, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.
I told her that it was essentially a Perfect Diet and that the way that it works is, to load your pants pockets with Purina Nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.)
Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care, because the dog food poisoned me.
I told her no, I stepped off a curb to sniff a poodle's ass and a car hit me.
I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard.
Costco won't let me shop there anymore.

it was, hit the ball, drag Gus, hit the ball,
drag Gus . . . "

he had a bad illness and only a year to live.
So he decided to talk to his pastor. After
the man explained his situation, he asked his
pastor if there was anything he could do.
"What you should do is go out and buy a late
'70's or early '80's model Dodge Pickup," said
the pastor. "Then go get married to the ugliest
woman you can find, and buy yourselves an old
trailer house in the panhandle of Oklahoma."
The fellow asked, "Will this help me live
"No," said the pastor, "but it will make what
time you do have seem like forever."

The doctor set the pain transfer to 10 percent for starters, explaining
10 percent was probably more pain than the father had ever experienced

and kick it up a notch.
The doctor then adjusted the machine to 20 percent pain transfer. The

He picks it up, and as he's looking at it, she walks back in. He says "What's this?"
She says, "Oh, my father's ashes are in there."
He goes, "Geez...oooh....I..."
She says, "Yeah, he's too lazy to go to the kitchen to get an ashtray."
Little Johnny comes home from catholic school with a black eye. His father asks “how did this happen?”
Little Johnny says "Dad, it wasn't my fault. We were in church saying our prayers and when we stood up, my teachers dress was stuck in the crack of her butt. So I reached forward and pulled it out for her. That's when she hit me."
Johnnie's father says "Johnny, whenever you see something like that on a woman, just leave it alone."
Well, the very next day little Johnny comes home with his other eye black and blue. His father asks him how this happened.
Little Johnny says "Dad, it wasn't my fault. We were in church saying our prayers and when we stood up, my teachers dress was stuck in the crack of her butt. Now Billy next to me sees this and he reaches forward and pulls it out for her."
Now I know she doesn't like this, so I pushed it back in!

A tough looking group of bikers were riding when they saw a beautiful young woman about to jump off a bridge, so they stopped.
The leader, a big burly man, gets off his bike and says, "What are you doing?"
"I'm going to commit suicide," she says.
While he didn't want to appear insensitive, he didn't want to miss an opportunity either, so he asked...
"Well, before you jump, why don't you give me a parting kiss?"
So she does... and it was a long, deep, lingering kiss.
After she's finished, the biker says, "Wow! That was the best kiss I've ever had! How about another?"
The second kiss was even hotter and more sensuous.
"Mmmmm - that was some turn-on kiss" the biker says.
"You know, ....you have a real talent there that you would be wasting. You could have any guy you wanted and be very happy. Why in the world would you want to commit suicide?"
"My parents don't like me dressing up like a girl."
The authorities think she may have been pushed.

On his 74th birthday, a man got a gift certificate from his wife.
The certificate paid for a visit to a medicine man living on a nearby reservation who was rumored to have a wonderful cure for erectile dysfunction.
After being persuaded, he drove to the reservation, handed his certificate to the medicine man and wondered what he was in for.
The old man handed a potion to him, and with a grip on his shoulder, he warned, "This is a powerful medicine. You take only a teaspoonful and then say '1-2-3.' "
When you do, you will become more potent than you have ever been in your life and you can perform as long as you want."
The man was encouraged. As he walked away, he turned and asked, "How do I stop the medicine from working?"
"Your partner must say '1-2-3-4,'" he responded, "but when she does, the medicine will not work again until the next full moon."
He was very eager to see if it worked so he went home, showered, shaved, took a spoonful of the medicine and then invited his wife to join him in the bedroom. When she came in, he took off his clothes and said, " 1-2-3!" Immediately, he was the manliest of men.
His wife was excited and began throwing off her clothes and then she asked "What was the 1-2-3 for ?"
And that, boys and girls, is why we should never end our sentences with a preposition, because we could end up with a dangling participle.
An old English couple is in a taxi in America.
The taxi driver says "So which part of England are you folks from?"
The old man replies "From Yorkshire"
The old lady says "What did he say?"
The old man says "He asked which part of England we are from and I said Yorkshire"
The taxi driver says "I've been to Yorkshire once. I stayed with an old couple. The woman was horrible, it put me off going to England forever."
The old man says "I think the driver knows you!"

My wife hosted a dinner party for family far and wide and everyone was encouraged to bring all their children as well.
All during dinner my four-year-old niece stared at me sitting across from her. The girl could hardly eat her food for staring.
I checked my shirt for spots, felt my face for food, patted my hair in place but nothing stopped her from staring at me.
I tried my best to just ignore her but finally it was too much for me. I finally asked her "Why are you staring at me?"
Everyone at the table had noticed her behavior and the table went quiet for her response.
My little niece said "I'm just waiting to see how you drink like a fish."
There's too much month left at the end of the money.
a group of Harley bikers were riding west on I-74 when they saw a girl about to jump off a Peoria bridge, so they stopped.
The Harley leader, George, a big burly man of 53, gets off his bike, walks through the gawkers, past the State Trooper, and says, "What are you doing?"
"I'm going to commit suicide," she says.
While he didn't want to appear "sensitive," he didn't want to miss a be-a-legend opportunity either so he asked ... "Well, before you jump, why don't you give me a kiss?"
So, with no hesitation at all, she leaned back over the railing and did just that ... and it was a long, deep, lingering kiss followed immediately by another one.
After she's finished, George gets approval from his group, the onlookers, and even the State Trooper, then says, "Wow! That was the best kiss I have ever had, Honey!
That's a real talent you are wasting, Sugar Shorts. You could be famous if you rode with me. Why are you committing suicide?"
"My parents don't like me dressing up like a girl".
The onlookers are still unclear whether she jumped or was pushed!
By Jove, I think I got it : )

The room was full of pregnant women and their
partners, and the Lamaze class was in full swing.
The instructor was teaching the women how to
breathe properly, along with informing the men
how to give the necessary assurances at this
stage of the plan.
The teacher then announced, "Ladies, exercise
is good for you. Walking is especially beneficial.
And, gentlemen, it wouldn't hurt you to take
the time to go walking with your partner!"
The room really got quiet.
Finally, a man in the middle of the group raised

A family had twin boys whose only resemblance
to each other was their looks. If one felt it
was too hot, the other thought it was too cold.
If one said the TV was too loud, the other claimed
the volume needed to be turned up. Opposite in
every way, one was an eternal optimist, the other
a doom & gloom pessimist.
Just to see what would happen, on the twins'
birthday their father loaded the pessimist's
room with every imaginable toy and game. The
optimist's room he loaded with horse manure.
That night the father passed by the pessimist's
room and found him sitting amid his new gifts
"Why are you crying?" the father asked.
"Because my friends will be jealous, I'll have
to read all these instructions before I can do
anything with this stuff, I'll constantly need
batteries, and my toys will eventually get broken,"
answered the pessimist twin.
Passing the optimist twin's room, the father
found him dancing for joy in the pile of manure.
"What are you so happy about?" he asked.
To which his optimist twin replied, "There's
got to be a pony in here somewhere!"
THis came from an Isac Asimov story, I think. If I recall the book, I"ll post the title! The son was going thru some testing to get into (space/flight?) school. It was extreamly painful and usually the mother feels the effect but for extra cash, some of the pain can be transferred to the father...

He called the Glendale police to report the stolen camel. The police responded to the call and started filling out the report. A question was, "Is there any distinguishing features about Clyde?” The worker said that it looked the same as any other camel. The policeman said, “When we locate it, we have to be sure it is yours.”
The guy thought a moment and said, “It has a crazy a$$hole.” The cop asked “What is a crazy a$$hole?” The guy said, “Well I’m not sure but when I was at a red-light on Colorado Blvd, I heard I guy say, “Look at the crazy a$$hole on that camel.”

Peter was telling a friend that he had just lost his job. “
Why did the foreman fire you?” the friend asked in surprise.
“Oh,” Peter said, “you know how foreman are. They stand around with their hands in their pockets watching everybody else work.”
“We all know that,” replied his friend. “But why did he let you go?”
“Jealousy,” answered Pete. “All the other workers thought I was the foreman.”

The Italian Funeral Dog
An Italian man was leaving a convenience store with his espresso when he noticed a most unusual Italian funeral procession approaching the nearby cemetery.
A black hearse was followed by a second black hearse about 50 Feet behind the first one. Behind the second hearse was a solitary Italian man walking a dog on a leash. Behind him, a short distance back, were about 200 men walking single file.
The man couldn't stand the curiosity. He respectfully approached the Italian man walking the dog and said:
"I am so sorry for your loss, and this may be a bad time to disturb you, but I've never seen a Italian funeral like this. Whose funeral is it?"
''What happened to her?"
"She yelled at me and my dog attacked and killed her."
He inquired further, "But who is in the second hearse?"
The Italian man answered, "My mother-in-law. She was trying to help my wife when the dog turned on her."
A very poignant and touching moment of Italian brotherhood and silence passed between the two men..
"Can I borrow the dog?"
The man replied, "Get in line."

An 8-year-old girl went to her grandfather, who was working in the yard and asked him, "Grandpa, what is couple sex?"
The grandfather was surprised that she would ask such a question, but decided that if she's old enough to know to ask the question, then she's old enough to get a straight answer. Steeling himself to leave nothing out, he proceeded to tell her all about human reproduction and the joys and responsibilities of intercourse.
When he finished explaining, the little girl was looking at him with her mouth hanging open, eyes wide in amazement.
Seeing the look on her face, the grandfather asked her, "Why did you ask this question, honey?"
The little girl replied, "Grandma says that dinner will be ready in just a couple secs.
A young man shopping in a supermarket noticed a little old lady following him around. If he stopped, she stopped. Furthermore she kept staring at him.
She finally overtook him at the checkout, and she turned to him and said, "I hope I haven't made you feel ill at ease; it's just that you look so much like my late son."
He answered, "That's okay."
"I know it's silly, but if you'd call out 'Good bye, Mom' as I leave the store, it would make me feel so happy."
She then went through the checkout, and as she was on her way out of the store, the man called out, "Goodbye, Mom."
The little old lady waved and smiled back at him..
Pleased that he had brought a little sunshine into someone's day, he went to pay for his groceries.

An Arizona Highway Patrol officer stops a Harley for traveling faster than the posted speed limit, so he asks the biker his name. 'Fred,' he replies.
'Fred what?' the officer asks. 'Just Fred,' the man responds.
The officer is in a good mood, thinks he might just give the biker a break, and write him out a warning instead of a ticket. The officer then presses him for the last name.
The man tells him that he used to have a last name but lost it. The officer thinks that he has a nut case on his hands but plays along with it. 'Tell me, Fred, how did you lose your last name?'
The biker replies, 'It's a long story, so stay with me.' I was born Fred Johnson. I studied hard and got good grades.
When I got older, I realized that I wanted to be a doctor. I went through college, medical school, internship, residency, and finally got my degree, so I was Fred Johnson, MD. After a while I got bored being a doctor, so I decided to go back to school.
Dentistry was my dream! Got all the way through School, got my degree, so then I was Fred Johnson, MD, DDS.
Got bored doing dentistry, so I started fooling around with my assistant and she gave me VD, so now I was Fred Johnson, MD, DDS, with VD.
Well, the ADA found out about the VD, so they took away my DDS.
Then I was Fred Johnson, MD, with VD. Then the AMA found out about the ADA taking away my DDS because of the VD, so they took away my MD leaving me as Fred Johnson with VD.

You, who worry about Democrats versus Republicans -- relax, here is our real problem.
In a Purdue University classroom, they were discussing the qualifications to be President of the United States .. It was pretty simple. The candidate must be a natural born citizen of at least 35 years of age.
However, one girl in the class immediately started in on how unfair was the requirement to be a natural born citizen. In short, her opinion was that this requirement prevented many capable individuals from becoming president.
The class was taking it in and letting her rant, and not many jaws hit the floor when she wrapped up her argument by stating, "What makes a natural born citizen any more qualified to lead this country than one born by C-section?"
Yep, these are the same kinds of 18-year-olds that are now voting in our elections! They breed, and they walk among US...
Lord -- we need more help than we thought we did!
