The Love Dress

A lady stopped unexpectedly by her recently married son's house. She rang
the doorbell and stepped into the house to see her daughter-in-law standing
naked by the door.
What are you doing she asked?
I am waiting for my husband to come home from work the daughter in law
replied.
Why are you naked.? asked the mother in law?
This is my love dress. the daughter in law replied
Love Dress?? You're naked said the mother in law
But my husband loves it when I wear the dress
It makes him happy and he makes me happy said the daughter in law
He will be home any minute now so perhaps you could stop by a little
later.
Soured by all the romantic stuff the mother in law left . On the way
home she thought about the Love Dress. and got an idea. She undressed ,
showered, applied her best perfume and waited by the door for her husband to
come home.
Finally his pickup truck drove up the drive way.
Her husband opened the door and immediately saw his naked wife.
What are you doing? he asked
This is my love dress she said excitedly.
Needs ironing, he replied.


THE PHARMACIST

A lady walks into a drug store and tells the pharmacist she needs some cyanide. The pharmacist said, "Why in the world do you need cyanide? The lady then explained she needed it to poison her husband.

The pharmacist's eyes got big and he said, "Lord, have mercy - I can't give you cyanide to kill your husband! That's against the law! I'll lose my license, they'll throw both of us in jail and all kinds of bad things will happen! Absolutely not, you CANNOT have any cyanide!"

The lady reached into her purse and pulled out a picture of her husband in bed with the pharmacist's wife.

The pharmacist looked at the picture and replied, "Well, now. You didn't tell me you had a prescription."


A Wish for All of the Difficult People

in Your Life

 


 

 

Do you have feelings of inadequacy?
Do you suffer from shyness?
Do you sometimes wish you were more assertive?

 

~*~*~

 

If you answered yes to any of these questions, ask your doctor
or pharmacist about Tequila..

Tequila. is the safe, natural way to feel better and more confident
about yourself and your actions. Tequila. can help ease you out
of your shyness and let you tell the world that you're ready and
willing to do just about anything.

You will notice the benefits of Tequila. almost immediately, and
with a regimen of regular doses, you can overcome any obstacles
that prevent you from living the life you want to live.

Shyness and awkwardness will be a thing of the past, and you will
discover many talents you never knew you had. Stop hiding and start
living, with Tequila..

Tequila. may not be right for everyone. Women who are pregnant
or nursing should not use Tequila.. However, women who wouldn't
mind nursing or becoming pregnant are encouraged to try it.

Side effects may include dizziness, nausea, vomiting,
incarceration, erotic lustfulness, loss of motor control,
loss of clothing, loss of money, loss of virginity,
delusions of grandeur, table dancing, headache,
dehydration, dry mouth, and a desire to sing Karaoke
and play all-night rounds of Strip Poker,
Truth Or Dare, and Naked Twister.

 

Tequila.: Leave Shyness Behind!

Because women realize it's not worth buying an entire Pig, just to get a little sausage.

SENIOR DRESS CODE

Many of us "Old Folks" (those over 50, WAY over
50, or hovering near 50) are quite confused about how we
should present ourselves. We are unsure about the kind of

may have seen on the streets, the following combinations DO
NOT go together And should be avoided:

1. A nose ring and bifocals
2. Spiked hair and bald spots
3. A pierced tongue and dentures
4. Miniskirts and support hose
5. Ankle bracelets and corn pads
6. Speedo's and cellulite
7. A belly button ring and a gall bladder surgery scar
8. Unbuttoned disco shirts and a heart monitor
9. Midriff shirts and a midriff bulge
10. Bikinis and liver spots
11. Short shorts and varicose veins
12. Inline skates and a walker

And last, but not least...my personal favorite

13. Thongs and Depends

An elderly woman walked into the Bank of Canada one morning with a purse full of money. She wanted to open a savings account and insisted on talking to the president of the Bank because, she said, she had a lot of money.

After many lengthy discussions (after all, the client is always right) an employee took the elderly woman to the president's office.

The president of the Bank asked her how much she wanted to deposit. She placed her purse on his desk and replied, "$165,000". The president was curious and asked her how she had been able to save so much money. The elderly woman replied that she made bets.

The president was surprised and asked, "What kind of bets?"

The elderly woman replied, "Well, I bet you $25,000 that your testicles are square."

The president started to laugh and told the woman that it was impossible to win a bet like that.

The woman never batted an eye. She just looked at the president and said, "Would you like to take my bet?"

"Certainly", replied the president. "I bet you $25,000 that my testicles are not square."

"Done", the elderly woman answered. "But given the amount of money involved, if you don't mind I would like to come back at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning with my lawyer as a witness."

"No problem", said the president of the Bank confidently.

That night, the president became very nervous about the bet and spent a long time in front of the mirror examining his testicles, turning them this way and that, checking them over again and again until he was positive that no one could consider his testicles as square and reassuring himself that there was no way he could lose the bet.

The next morning at exactly 10 o'clock the elderly woman arrived at the president's office with her lawyer and acknowledged the $25,000 bet made the day before that the president's testicles were square.

The president confirmed that the bet was the same as the one made the day before. Then the elderly woman asked him to drop his pants etc. so that she and her lawyer could see clearly.

The president was happy to oblige.

The elderly woman came closer so she could see better and asked the president if she could touch them. "Of course", said the president. "Given the amount of money involved, you should be 100% sure."

The elderly woman did so with a little smile. Suddenly the president noticed that the lawyer was banging his head against the wall. He asked the elderly woman why he was doing that and she replied, "Oh, it's probably because I bet him $100,000 that around 10 o'clock in the morning I would be holding the balls of the President of the Bank of Canada!"

Alabama Girls

Three Men were sitting together, bragging about how they had given

duties to their new wives.

The first man had married a woman from

California, and bragged that he had told her she was going to do all the

dishes and all the house cleaning that needed to be done at their house.

he said that it took a couple of days, but on the third day he came home

to a clean house and all the dishes washed and put away. The

second man had married a woman from Texas. He bragged that he had given

his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, the dishes and the

cooking. He told them that the first day, he didn't see any

results...... but the next day it was better. By the third day, his

house was cleaned, dishes were done and he had a huge meal on the table.

The third man had married an Alabama girl. He boasted that he had told her that her

duties were to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed,

laundry washed and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the

first day, he didn't see anything.... the second day, he didn't see

anything, but by the third day, most of the swelling had gone down and

he could see a little out of his left eye, enough to fix himself a bite

to eat, load the dishwasher and call a landscaper.

Got to love those Alabama women.

GOVERNMENTIUM:

A major research institution has recently announced the discovery of the
heaviest element yet known to science. The new element has been named
"Governmentium." Governmentium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons,
75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an
atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by forces
called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like
particles called peons.

Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be
detected because it impedes every action with which it comes into
contact. A second's worth of exposure to Governmentium will cause any
action to take four hundred times longer to complete, and cost five
times as much.

Governmentium has a normal half-life of 4 years; it does not decay, but
instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant
neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, governmentium's
mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will
cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes. This
characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that
Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in
concentration. This hypothetical
quantity is referred to as "Critical Morass."

When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium (aka
Bureaucratium) - an element which radiates as much energy as the
Governmentium, but has half as many peons and twice as many morons.

COWS
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that our government can
track a cow born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where
she sleeps in the state of Washington, and they tracked her calves to their
stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering
around our country. Maybe we should give them all a cow.

CONSTITUTION
They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq. Why don't we just
give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it's worked
for over 200 years, and we're not using it anymore.

TEN COMMANDMENTS
The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments in a Courthouse?
You cannot post "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery",
and "Thou Shall Not Lie" in a building full of lawyers, judges, and politicians!
It creates a hostile work environment!

And last but not least . .
George Carlin said it best about Martha Stewart
"Boy, I feel a lot safer now that she's behind bars. O.J. Simpson and Kobe
Bryant are still walking around; Osama bin Laden too, but they take the one
woman in America willing to cook, clean, and work in the yard, and haul her
ass off to jail."

 


Thanks to Ed Warysh for this one.

 

The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water
temperature isn't just how you like it, think about how things used to be.
Here are some facts about the 1500s:
Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May
and still smelled pretty good by June. However, they were starting to smell
so brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor. Hence the
custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting married.
Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man of the house had
the privilege of the nice clean water, then all the other sons and men, then
the women and finally the children-last of all the babies. By then the water
was so dirty you could actually lose someone in it. Hence the saying, "Don't
throw the baby out with the bath"
Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath.
It was the only place for animals to get warm, so all the dogs, cats and
other small animals (mice, bugs) lived in the roof. When it rained it became
slippery and sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof. Hence
the saying "It's raining cats and dogs"
There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. This posed a
real problem in the bedroom where bugs and other droppings could really mess
up your nice clean bed. Hence, a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over
the top afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into
existence.
The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other than dirt. Hence
the saying "dirt poor".
The wealthy had slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet,
so they spread thresh (straw) on the floor to help keep their footing. As
the winter wore on, they kept adding more thresh until when you opened the
door it would all start slipping outside. A piece of wood was placed in the
entranceway. Hence the saying a "thresh hold."
In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big kettle that always
hung over the fire. Every day they lit the fire and added things to the pot.
They ate mostly vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the
stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold overnight and then
start over the next day. Sometimes the stew had food in it that had been
there for quite a while. Hence the rhyme, "Peas porridge in the pot nine
days old."
Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When
visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show off. It was a
sign of wealth that a man "could bring home the bacon." They would cut off a
little to share with guests and would all sit around and "chew the fat."
Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high acid content
caused some of the lead to leach onto the food, causing lead poisoning,
often with tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were
considered poisonous.
Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burnt bottom of the
loaf, the family got the middle, and guests got the top, or "upper crust."
Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combination would sometimes
knock them out for a couple of days. Someone walking along the road would
take them for dead and prepare them for burial. They were laid out on the
kitchen table for a couple of days and the family would gather around and
eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake up. Hence the custom
holding a "wake."
England is old and small and the local folks started running out places to
bury people. So they would dig up coffins and would take the bones to a
"bone-house" and reuse the grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25
coffins were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they realized
they had been burying people alive. So they thought they would tie a string
on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the coffin and up through the
ground and tie it to a bell. Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard
all night he "graveyard shift") to listen for the bell; thus, someone could
be "saved by the bell" or was considered a "dead ringer." And that's the
truth...


CORPORATE LESSON

 

A young executive was leaving the office at 6 PM when he found the CEO
standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand. "Listen,"
said the CEO, "this is a very sensitive and important document and my
secretary has left. Can you make this thing work?" "Certainly, Sir" said the
young executive. He turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed
the start button.

"Excellent, excellent!" said the CEO as his paper disappeared inside the
machine. "I just need one copy."

Subject: : An intelligent Blond joke

Guy gets on a plane and finds himself seated next to a cute blonde.
He immediately turns to her and makes his move.
"You know," he says," I've heard that flights will go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger. So let's talk"
The blonde, who had just opened her book, closes it slowly and says to the guy, "What would you like to discuss?"
"Oh, I don't know," says the guy. "How about nuclear power?"
"OK," says the blonde. "That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first.
A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat the same stuff--grass. Yet the deer excretes little pellets, the cow turns out a flat patty, and the horse produces muffins of dried poop. Why do you suppose that is?"
The guy is dumbfounded. Finally he replies, "I haven't the slightest idea."
"So tell me," says the blonde, "How is it that you feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know shit?

>
> 2. There is no such thing as "US English." We will let Microsoft know on
> your behalf. The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take account
> of the reinstated letter "u" and the elimination of "-ize."
>
> 3. You should learn to distinguish the English and Australian accents. It
> really isn't that hard. English accents are not limited to cockney,
> upper-class twit or Mancunian (Daphne in "Frasier").
>
> You will also have to learn how to understand regional accents - Scottish
> dramas such as "Taggart" will no longer be broadcast with subtitles.
>
> While we're talking about regions, you must learn that there is no such
> place as Devonshire in England. The name of the county is "Devon." If you
> persist in calling it Devonshire, all American States will become "shires"
> e.g. Texasshire, Floridashire, Louisianashire.
>
> 4. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as the
> good guys. Hollywood will be required to cast English actors to play
> English characters.
>
> British sit-coms such as "Men Behaving Badly" or "Red Dwarf" will not be
> re-cast and watered down for a wishy-washy American audience who can't
> cope
> with the humour of occasional political incorrectness.
>
> 5. You should relearn your original national anthem, "God Save The Queen",
> but only after fully carrying out task number one (above). We would not
> want you to get confused and give up half way through.
>
> 6. You should stop playing American "football." There is only one kind of
> football. What you refer to as American "football" is not a very good
> game.
>
> The 2.15 percent of you who are aware that there is a world outside your
> borders may have noticed that no one else plays "American" football. You
> will no longer be allowed to play it, and should instead play proper
> football.
>
> Initially, it would be best if you played with the girls. It is a
> difficult
> game. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby
> (which is similar to American "football", but does not involve stopping
> for
> a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like
> nancies).
>
> We are hoping to get together at least a US Rugby sevens side by 2008.
>
> You should stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event
> called the "World Series" for a game which is not played outside of
> America. Since only 2.15 percent of you are aware that there is a world
> beyond your borders, your error is understandable. Instead of baseball,
> you
> will be allowed to play a girls' game called "rounders," which is baseball
> without fancy team strip, oversized gloves, collector cards, or hotdogs.
>
> 7. You will no longer be allowed to own or carry guns. You will no longer
> be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous in public than a
> vegetable peeler. Because we don't believe you are sensible enough to
> handle potentially dangerous items, you will require a permit if you wish
> to carry a vegetable peeler in public.
>
> 8. July 4th is no longer a public holiday. November 2nd will be a new
> national holiday, but only in England. It will be called "Indecisive Day."
>
> 9. All American cars are hereby banned. They are crap, and it is for your
> own good. When we show you German cars, you will understand what we mean.
>
> All road intersections will be replaced with roundabouts. You will start
> driving on the left with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go
> metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables.
> Roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of
> humour.
>
> 10. You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call "French
> fries"
> are not real chips. Fries aren't even French, they are Belgian though
> 97.85
> percent of you (including the guy who discovered fries while in Europe)
> are
> not aware of a country called Belgium. Those things you insist on calling
> potato chips are properly called "crisps." Real chips are thick cut and
> fried in animal fat. The traditional accompaniment to chips is beer which
> should be served warm and flat.
>
> Waitresses will be trained to be more aggressive with customers.
>
> 11. As a sign of penance 5 grams of sea salt per cup will be added to all
> tea made within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, this quantity to be
> doubled for tea made within the city of Boston itself.
>
> 12. The cold tasteless stuff you insist on calling "beer" is not actually
> beer at all, it is lager. From November 1st only proper British Bitter
> will
> be referred to as "beer," and European brews of known and accepted
> provenance will be referred to as "Lager." The substances formerly known
> as
> "American Beer" will henceforth be referred to as "Near-Frozen Gnat's
> Urine," with the exception of the product of the American Budweiser
> company
> whose product will be referred to as "Weak Near-Frozen Gnat's Urine." This
> will allow true Budweiser (as manufactured for the last 1000 years in the
> Czech Republic) to be sold without risk of confusion.
>
> 13. From November 10th the UK will harmonise petrol (or "gasoline," as you
> will be permitted to keep calling it until April 1st 2006) prices with the
> former USA. The UK will harmonise its prices to those of the former USA
> and
> the Former USA will, in return, adopt UK petrol prices (roughly $6/US
> gallon - get used to it).
>
> 14. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers
> or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows
> that you're not adult enough to be independent. Guns should only be
> handled
> by adults. If you're not adult enough to sort things out without suing
> someone or speaking to a therapist, then you're not grown up enough to
> handle a gun.
>
> 15. Please tell us who killed JFK. It's been driving us crazy.
>
> 16. Tax collectors from Her Majesty's Government will be with you shortly
> to ensure the acquisition of all revenues due (backdated to 1776).
>
> Thank you for your co-operation.
