An elderly couple was driving across the country. While the woman was behind the wheel, the couple was pulled over by the highway patrol.

“Ma’am, did you know you were speeding?” the officer said.

The woman, hard of hearing, turned to her husband and asked, “What did he

“He said you were speeding!” the old man yelled.

The patrolman then asked, “May I see your license?”

The woman turned to her husband again, “What did he say?”

The old man yelled back, “He wants to see your license!”

The woman then gave the officer her license.

“I see you are from Arkansas,” the patrolman said. “I spent some time there once and went on a blind date with the ugliest woman I’ve ever seen.”

The woman turned to her husband again and asked, “What did he say?”

The old man replied, “He said he knows you!”

Attitude Adjustment

A little rabbit is happily running through the forest when he stumbles upon a giraffe rolling a joint. The rabbit says, "Giraffe my friend, why do you do this? Come with me running through the forest! You'll see, you'll feel so much better!" The giraffe looks at him, looks at the joint, tosses it and goes off running with the rabbit.

Then they come across an elephant snorting coke, so the rabbit again says, "Elephant my friend, why do you do this? Think about your health. Come running with us through the pretty forest! You'll see, you'll feel so good!" The elephant looks at them, looks at his razor, mirror and all, then tosses them and starts running with the rabbit and giraffe.

The three animals then come across a lion about to shoot up and the rabbit says, "Lion my friend, why do you do this? Think of what you are doing to your body! Come running with us through the sunny forest! You will feel so good!" The lion puts down his needle, picks up the rabbit and starts beating him.

As the giraffe and elephant watch in horror they say, "Lion, why did you do this? He was merely trying to help us all!"

The lion says, "He always makes me run around the forest for hours every time he's on ecstasy!

Resurrected Rabbit...

A man was driving along the highway, and saw a rabbit hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved to avoid hitting the rabbit, but unfortunately the rabbit jumped in front of the car and was hit. The driver, being a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulled over to the side of the road, and got out to see what had become of the rabbit.

Much to his dismay, the rabbit was dead. The driver felt so awful, he began to cry. A woman driving down the highway saw the man crying on the side of the road and pulled over. She stepped out of her car and asked the man what was wrong.

"I feel terrible," he explained, "I accidently hit this rabbit and killed it."

The woman told the man not to worry. She knew what to do. She went to her car trunk, and pulled out a spray can. She walked over to the limp, dead rabbit, and sprayed the contents of the can onto the rabbit.

Miraculously the rabbit came to life, jumped up, waved it’s paw at the two humans and hopped down the road. 50 meters away the rabbit stopped, turned around, waved and hopped down the road, another 50 meters, turned, waved and hopped another 50 meters. The man was astonished. He couldn’t figure out what substance could be in the woman’s spray can!!

He ran over to the woman and demanded, "What is in your spray can? What did you spray on that rabbit?"

The woman turned the can around so that the man could read the label. It said: "Hair spray. Restores life to dead hair. Adds permanent wave."

I like watching the ball drop in Times Square on New Years.

It's a good reminder of how I spent the previous year.

Morris Schwartz is on his deathbed, knows the end is near, is with his nurse, his wife, his daughter and 2 sons. "So", he says to them:
"Bernie, I want you to take the Beverly Hills houses."
"Sybil, take the apartments over in Los Angeles Plaza.
"Hymie, I want you to take the offices over in City Center."
"Sarah, my dear wife, please take all the residential buildings downtown."
The nurse is just blown away by all this, and as Morris slips away, she says , "Mrs. Schwartz, your husband must have been such a hard working man to have accumulated all this property"
Sarah replies, "Property? ... the schmuck has a paper route!"

Wine Taster Wanted

At a winery, the regular taster died, and the director started looking for a new one to hire.

An apparent drunkard with a ragged, rather dirty look, came in to apply for the position.

The director of the winery wondered how to send him away.

He gave him a glass to drink.

The drunk tried it and said, "It's a Muscat, three years old, grown on a northern facing slope, matured in stainless-steel. Somewhat lower grade, but acceptable at the right price point."

"That's... that's correct.", said the boss, astonished.

Another glass... "This is a Cabernet Sauvignon, eight years old, grown on old vines planted on a south-western facing slope, matured in new oak barrels at 58 degrees. Requires three more years for the finest results."

"Correct!" A third glass... "This is a Pinot Blanc Champagne with an oaked, full body flavor and a strong fragrance with notes of apple and almond." the drunk said calmly.

The director was blown away, but in case this was some sort of hoax, he wanted to put the man to a real test.

He winked at his secretary, secretly suggesting something.

She left the room and came back in with a glass of urine.

The alcoholic tried it.

"It's a blonde, 26 years old, three months pregnant and if I don't get the job, I'll name the father."



The monk and the abbot

A monk decided that he was going to join the monastery. The Abbot told him that he could only speak two words every three years if he joined the monastery. The monk said that he was okay with those rules. At the end of three years, the Abbot called in the monk and asked him if he wanted to say anything. The monk replied, “Food. Cold.” At the end of the next three years, he was asked if he wanted to say anything. He replied, “Bed. Hard.” Three more years goes by. The Abbot asked the monk if he had anything to say. The monk replied, “I quit.” The Abbot replied, “It’s about time. The only thing that you have done since you got here is complain, complain, complain.”

A wish to live forever

I met a magical fairy yesterday who said she would grant me one wish.

"I wish to live forever," I said.

"Sorry," said the fairy, "that is the only wish that I'm not allowed to grant."

"Fine," I said. "Then I want to die the day after Congress is filled with honest, hard-working, bipartisan men and women who act only in the people's best interests!"

"You're a crafty little bastard," replied the fairy.

Estate Planning

James was a single guy, living alone, not far from his father and working in the family business. He knew that he would inherit it and a small fortune once his sickly father died.

James wanted two things:
• To learn how to invest his inheritance and,
• To find a wife to share his fortune.

One evening at an investment meeting, he spotted the most beautiful woman he had ever seen. Her natural beauty took his breath away.

He got up the courage to aproach her and said, "I may look like just an ordinary man, but in just a few years, my father will die, and I'll inherit a small fortune."

Impressed, the woman obtained his business card.

Two weeks later, she became his stepmother.

Women seem so much better at estate planning than men.


Wife’s Diary entry
Tonight, I thought my husband was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a nice restaurant for dinner. I was shopping with my friends all day long, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment on it.
Conversation wasn't flowing, so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk. He agreed, but he didn't say much. I asked him what was wrong; He said, "nothing." I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said he wasn't upset, that it had nothing to do with me, and not to worry about it. On the way home, I told him that I loved him. He smiled slightly, and kept driving. I can't explain his behavior. I don't know why he didn't say, "I love you, too."
When we got home, I felt as if I had lost him completely, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore. He just sat there quietly, and watched TV. He continued to seem distant and absent. Finally, with silence all around us, I decided to go to bed. About 15 minutes later, he came to bed. But I still felt that he was distracted, and his thoughts were somewhere else. He fell asleep; I cried. I don't know what to do. I'm almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else. My life is a disaster.

Earl and Bubba are quietly sitting in a boat fishing, chewing tobacco, and drinking beer when suddenly Bubba says, "I think I'm gonna divorce the wife - she ain't spoke to me in over two months."

Earl spits overboard, takes a long slow sip of beer and says, "Better think it over; women like that are hard to find."

Seven words, what do they have in common?

See if you can figure out what these seven words all have in common:
1. Banana
2. Dresser
3. Grammar
4. Potato
5. Revive
6. Uneven
7. Assess

It has nothing to do with double letters . . in all of the words listed, if you take the first letter, place it at the end of the word, and then spell the word backwards, it will be the same word.

Be Positive, Even in Death

Ira took her husband Norman to the emergency for an unknown ailment.

They discovered that he desperately needed a blood transfusion to save his life! But his blood type was not on record, so the doctors asked her if she knew what it was, as they urgently needed to know, in order to save Norman’s life.

Tragically, she said that she had never known his blood type, so she only had time to sit and say goodbye.

Just after he passed, she remarked that she would never forget how supportive Norman was... "Even as he was fading away, he kept on whispering, “Be positive... Be positive!”
"That was Norman! Always thinking of others.”

Ask Dad

A farmer got in his pickup and drove over to a neighbor's and knocked at the door. A young boy, about 9, opened the door
"Is your Dad home?" the farmer asked.
"No sir, he isn't," the boy replied. "He went into town."
"Well," said the man, "Is your Mother here?"
"No sir, she's not here either. She went into town with Dad."
"How about your brother, Howard? Is he here?"
"No sir, He went with Mom and Dad."
The man stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the other and mumbling to himself.
"Is there anything I can do for you?" the boy asked politely. "I know where all the tools are, if you want to borrow one. Or maybe I could take a message for Dad."
"Well," said the rancher uncomfortably, "I really wanted to talk to your Dad. It's about your brother Howard getting my daughter, Suzie, pregnant."
The boy considered for a moment. "You would have to talk to Pa about that", he finally conceded. "If it helps you any, I know that Pa charges $500 for the bull and $100 for the boar, but I really don't know how much he gets for Howard.

80,000 Blondes

Sorry, but sometimes a good blonde joke is just too hard to pass up...

80,000 blondes meet in a football stadium for a “Blondes Are Not Stupid” Convention. The leader says, “We are all here today to prove to the world that blondes are not stupid. Can I have a volunteer?”

A blonde carefully works her way through the crowd and steps up to the stage.

The leader asks her, “What is 15 plus 15?”

After 15 or 20 seconds she says, “Twenty-One?”

Obviously, everyone is a little disappointed. Then 80,000 blondes start cheering, “Give her another chance! Give her another chance!”

The leader says, “Well since we’ve gone to the trouble of getting 80,000 of you in one place and we have the world-wide press and global broadcast media here, uh, I guess we can give her another chance.”

So, he asks, “What is 5 plus 5?”

After nearly 30 seconds she eventually says, “Nineteen?”

The leader is quite perplexed, looks down and just lets out a dejected sigh. Everyone is disheartened – the blonde starts crying and the 80,000 girls begin to yell and wave their hands shouting, “GIVE HER ANOTHER CHANCE! GIVE HER ANOTHER CHANCE!”

The leader, unsure whether or not he is doing more harm than good, eventually says, “OK! OK! Just one more chance – what is 2 plus 3?”

The girl closes her eyes, and after a whole minute eventually says, “Five?”

Throughout the stadium pandemonium breaks out as all 80,000 girls jump to their feet, wave their arms, stomp their feet and scream…

“Give her another chance! Give her another chance!”

A psychiatrist in Canada...

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

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

He turned to the second Mom, (from Manitoba) Ann: "Your obsession is with money. Again, it manifests itself in your child's name, Penny."

He turned to the third Mom, Joyce (from BC): "Your obsession is alcohol. This too shows itself in your child's name, Brandy."

At this point, the fourth mother, (from Newfoundland) Carol, 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 up Peter and Willy from school and go get dinner.
