A magician worked on a cruise ship. The audience was
different each week so the magician did the same tricks over and
over again. There was only one problem: the captain’s parrot saw the
shows each week and began to understand how the magician did every
trick. Once he understood, he started shouting in the middle of the
show – “Look, it’s not the same hat?” or, “Look, he’s hiding the
flowers under the table?” or “Hey, why are all the cards the ace of
The magician was furious but couldn’t do anything. It
was, after all, the captain’s parrot. Then one stormy night on the
Pacific, the ship unfortunately sank, drowning almost all who were
on board. The magician luckily found himself on a piece of wood
floating in the middle of the sea, and, as fate would have it, with
the parrot. They stared at each other with hatred, but did not utter
a word. This went on for a day, and then 2 days, and then 3 days.
Finally on the 4th day, the parrot could not hold back
any longer and said, “OK, I give up. Where’s the damn ship?”

was the blonde walking down the street, holding hands with the two
chimps, much to the amusement of a big crowd. With a screech of
brakes he pulled off the road and ran over to the blonde.
"What are you doing here?" he demanded, "I gave you

"Yes, I know you did," said the blonde. "But we

As a child, I always had a fear of someone under the bed at night.

“Just put yourself in my hands for one year,” said the

to get rid of those fears.” “How much do you charge?” “One hundred
fifty dollars per visit,” replied the doctor.
“I'll sleep on it,” I said.
Six months later the doctor met me on the street. “Why
didn't you come to see me about those fears you were having?” he

for an evening with friends and had more than several drinks,
followed by a couple of bottles of rather nice red wine and vodka
shots. Although relaxed, I still had the common sense to know I was
way over the limit.
That's when I did something I've never done
before, I took a taxi home. Sure enough, on the way there was a
police roadblock, but since it was a taxi they waved it past and I
arrived home safely without incident.
This was a real surprise for me, because I have
never driven a taxi before. I don't know where I got it, and now
that it's in my garage I don't know what to do with it. So if you
want to borrow it, give me a call.

boy and his father were in a mall. They were amazed by almost

could move apart and then slide back together again.
The boy asked, 'What is this Father?'
(never having seen an elevator) responded, 'Son, I have never seen
anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is.'
While the boy and his father were watching with amazement, a
fat old lady in a wheel chair moved up to the moving walls and
pressed a button. The walls opened, and the lady rolled between them
into a small room. The walls closed and the boy and his father
watched the small numbers above the walls light up sequentially.

then the numbers began to light in the reverse order. Finally the
walls opened up again and a gorgeous 24-year-old blond stepped out.

wife came down with a terrible headache and told her husband to go
to the party alone. He being a devoted husband protested, but she
argued and said she was going to take some aspirin and go to bed and
there was no need for his good time being spoiled by not going.
So he took his costume and away he went. The wife,
after sleeping soundly for about an hour, awakened without pain and,
as it was still early enough, decided to go the party. Since her
husband did not know what her costume was, she thought she would
have some fun by watching her husband to see how he acted when she
was not with him.
She joined the party and soon spotted her husband
cavorting around on the dance floor, dancing with every nice woman
he could, and copping a little touch here and a little kiss there.

Bradford, a Dublin University student, was on the side of the road
hitchhiking on a very dark night in the midst of a big storm. The
night kept rolling on and no car went by. The storm was so strong he
could hardly see a few feet ahead of him. Suddenly, he saw a car
slowly coming up behind him and it stopped.
John, desperate for shelter, quickly got into the car
and closed the door only to realize there was nobody behind the
wheel and the engine wasn't on. The car started moving slowly. John
looked at the road ahead and saw a curve approaching. Scared, he
started to pray, begging for his life.
Then, just before the car hit the curve, a hand
appeared out of nowhere through the window, and turned the wheel.
John, paralyzed with terror, watched as the hand came through the
window, but never touched or harmed him.
Shortly thereafter, John saw the lights of a pub appear
down the road, and so, gathering his strength, he jumped out of the
car and ran to it. Soaking wet and out of breath, he rushed inside
and started telling everybody about the horrible experience he had
just had. A silence enveloped the pub when everybody realized he was
crying and wasn't drunk.
Suddenly, the door opened, and two other people walked
in from the dark and stormy night. They, like John, were also soaked
and out of breath. Looking around, and seeing John Bradford sobbing
at the bar, one said to the other: "Look Paddy, there's that fooking
idiot that got in the car while we were pushing it!"

was agreed that they would meet at Hooters because the restaurant

A couple were Christmas shopping. The shopping center was packed and
as the wife walked around, she was surprised to discover that her
husband was nowhere to be found. She was quite upset because they
had a lot to do, and she became so worried that she called him on
his cell phone to ask him where he was.
In a quiet voice he said, “Do you remember the jewelry
shop we went into about five years ago, when you fell in love with
that diamond necklace that we couldn’t afford, and I told you I
would get it for you one day?”
The wife choked up and started to cry and said, “Yes, I
do remember that shop.”
He replied, “Well, I’m in the bar next door.”

Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper, Guido, has cheated him out
of $10,000,000.00. His bookkeeper is deaf. That was the reason he
got the job in the first place. It was assumed that Guido would hear
nothing and would therefore never have to testify in court. When the
Godfather goes to confront Guido about the missing $10 million, he
takes along his lawyer, who knows sign language.
The Godfather tells the lawyer, "Ask him where the money is."
The lawyer, using sign language, asks Guido, "Where's the money?"
Guido signs back, "I don't know what you are talking about."
The lawyer tells the Godfather, "He says he doesn't know what you
are talking about."
The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to Guido's head and says,
"Ask him again or I'll kill him!"
The lawyer signs to Guido, "He'll kill you if you don't tell him."
Guido trembles and signs back, "OK! You win! The money is in a brown
briefcase, buried behind the shed at my cousin Bruno's house."
The Godfather asks the lawyer, "What did he say?"

A painter by the name of
Murphy, while not a brilliant scholar, was a gifted portrait artist.
Over a short number of years, his fame grew and soon people from all
over Ireland were coming to the town of Doolin in County Clare, to
get him to paint their likenesses.
One day, a beautiful young English woman arrived at his
house in a stretched limo and asked if he would paint her in the
nude. This being the first time anyone had made such a request he
was a bit perturbed, particularly when the woman told him that money
was no object; in fact, she was willing to pay up to $10,000. Not
wanting to get into any marital strife, he asked her to wait while
he went into the house to confer with Mary, his wife.
In a few minutes he returned. "T'would be me pleasure
to paint yer portrait, missus," he said. The wife says it's okay.
"I'll paint ya in da nude alright, but I have to at least leave me
socks on so I have a place to wipe me brushes”

A few minutes before the church services started, the congregation
was sitting in their pews and talking. Suddenly, Satan appeared at
the front of the church. Everyone started screaming and running for
the front entrance, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get
away from evil incarnate.
Soon the church was empty except for one elderly cowboy
who sat calmly in his pew without moving, seemingly oblivious to the
fact that God's ultimate enemy was in his presence. So Satan walked
up to the man and said, "Do you know who I am?"
The old cowboy replied, "Yep, sure do."
Aren't you afraid of me?" Satan asked.
"Nope, sure ain't." said the cowboy.
"Don't you realize I can kill you with one word?" asked
"Don't doubt it for a minute," returned the old man, in
an even tone.
"Did you know that I can cause you profound, horrifying
AGONY for all eternity?" persisted Satan.
"Yep," was the calm reply.
"And you are still not afraid?" asked Satan.
"Nope," said the old cowboy.
More than a little perturbed, Satan asked, "Why aren't
you afraid of me?"
The old cowboy calmly replied, "Been married to your
sister for 48 years."

Three blondes were applying
for a position on the police force. The detective opened a file
drawer, pulled out a folder, pulled out a picture, and said, “To be
a detective, you have to be able to detect. You must be able to
notice things such as distinguishing features and oddities like
scars and so forth." He
put the photo in the face of the first blonde and withdrew it after
a few seconds. "Now," he said, "did you notice any distinguishing
features about this man?"
The blonde immediately said, "Yes I did. He has only one eye!"
The detective shook his head and said, "Of course he has only one
eye in this picture! It's a profile of his face! You're dismissed."
The first blonde hung her head and walked out of the office.
The detective then turned to the second blonde, put the photo in
front of her for a few seconds, pulled it back, and said, "What
about you? Notice anything unusual or outstanding about this man?"
"Yes! He only has one ear!"
The detective put his head in his hands and exclaimed, "Didn't you
hear what I just told the other lady? This is a profile of the man's
face! Of course you can only see one ear! You're excused.” The
second blonde sheepishly walked out of the office.
The detective turned his attention to the third, and last blonde,
and said, "This is probably a waste of time, but, . . . " he flashed
the photo in her face for a couple of seconds and withdrew it,
saying, "OK, did you notice anything distinguishing or unusual about
The blonde said, "I sure did. The man wears contact lenses."
The detective frowned, took another look at the picture, and began
looking at some of the papers in the folder. He looked up at the
blonde with a puzzled expression and said, "You're absolutely
right! His bio says he wears contacts! How in the world could you
tell that by looking at his picture?"
The blonde rolled her eyes
and said, "Well, Hellooooooooooooo! With only one eye and one ear,

Why Men Shouldn’t Write Advice Columns
I hope you can help me. The other day, I set off for
work, leaving my husband in the house watching TV. My car stalled,
and then it broke down about a mile down the road, and I had to walk
back to get my husband’s help. When I got home, I couldn’t believe
my eyes. He was in our bedroom with the neighbor’s daughter!
I am 32, he is 34 and the neighbor’s daughter is 19. We
have been married for 10 years. When I confronted him, he broke down
and admitted they had been having an affair for the past six months.
He won’t go to counseling, and I’m afraid I am a wreck and need your
advice urgently. Can you please help?
A car stalling after being driven a short distance can
be caused by a variety of faults with the engine. Start by checking
that there is no debris in the fuel line. If it is clear, check the
vacuum pipes and hoses on the intake manifold and also check all
grounding wires. If none of these approaches solves the problem, it
could be that the fuel pump is faulty, causing low delivery pressure
to the injectors.
I hope this helps.

An 80-year-old Italian goes to the doctor for a check-up. The doctor
is amazed at what good shape the guy is in and asks, 'how do you
stay in such great physical condition?'
'I'm Italian and I am a golfer,' says the old guy, 'and
that's why I'm in such good shape. I'm up well before daylight and
out golfing up and down the fairways. I have a glass of vino, and
all is well.'
'Well' says the doctor, I'm sure that helps, but
there's got to be more to it. How old was your Father when he died?'
'Who said my Father's dead?'
The doctor is amazed. 'You mean you're 80 years old and
your Father's still alive. How old is he?'
'He's 100 years old,' says the Old Italian golfer. 'In
fact he golfed with me this morning, and then we went to the topless
beach for a walk and had a little vino and that's why he's still
alive. He's Italian and he's a golfer, too.'
'Well,' the doctor says, 'that's great, but I'm sure
there's more to it than that. How about your Father's Father? How
old was he when he died?'
'Who said my Nono's dead?'
Stunned, the doctor asks, 'you mean you're 80 years old
and your grandfather's still living! Incredible, how old is he?'
'He's 118 years old,' says the Old Italian golfer.
The doctor is getting frustrated at this point, 'So, I

VERY handsome cab driver won't stop staring at her.
She asks him why he is staring.
He replies: "I have a question to ask, but I don't want

She answers, "My son, you cannot offend me. When you're

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 ticket 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 him, 'This is a powerful medicine. You take
only a teaspoonful, and then say '1-2-3.' When you do, you will
become more manly 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, but

The Montana Department of Fish and Wildlife is advising hikers,
hunters, fishermen, rescue dog handlers, and golfers to take extra
precautions and be on the alert for bears while in the National
State Parks and Forests. They have advised people to wear
noise-producing devices such as little bells on their clothing to
alert, but not startle the bears unexpectedly. They also advise you
carry pepper spray in case of an encounter with a bear.
It is also a good idea to watch for signs of bear
activity. People should be able to recognize the difference between
black bear droppings and grizzly bear droppings. The black bear
droppings are smaller and contain berries and possibly squirrel
fur. The grizzly bear droppings have little bells in them and smell
like pepper spray.

yours for the asking." The cat thought for a minute and then said

offer that He made to the cat. The mice said, "Well, we have had to

One dark night in the small town in Garfield, NJ, a
fire started inside the local sausage factory.
In a blink of an eye, the building was engulfed
in flames. The alarm went out to all the fire
departments for miles around.
When the first
volunteer fire fighters appeared on the scene,
the sausage company president rushed to the fire
chief and said, 'All of our secret sausage
recipes are in the vault in the center of the
plant. They have to be saved, so I will donate
$50,000 to the fire company that brings them out
and delivers them to me.'
But the roaring flames held the firefighters off. Soon
more fire departments had to be called in
because the situation became desperate. As the
firemen arrived, the president announced that
the offer to
secret recipes was now $100,000 to the fire
department that could save them.

truck came into sight. It was the fire engine

engine, operated by these Italian firefighters,

I was a
very happy man. My wonderful girlfriend and I
decided to get married. But one thing was
bothering me... it was her beautiful younger
sister. My prospective sister-in-law was
twenty-two, wore very tight miniskirts and
generally was bra-less. She would regularly bend
down when she was near me, and I always got more
than a nice view.
One day, the “little sister” called me to come over to
check the wedding invitations. She was alone
when I arrived and whispered to me that she had
feelings and desires for me that she couldn’t
She told me that
she wanted me just once before I got married and committed my life
to her sister.
Well, I was in total shock and couldn’t say a word. She
said “I’m going to go upstairs to my bedroom,
and if you want one last fling, just come up and
get me.” I was stunned and frozen in shock as I
watched her go up the stairs.
I stood there for a moment, then turned and made a
beeline straight to the front door. I opened the
door and headed straight towards my car. Lo and
behold, the entire family was standing outside,
all clapping. With tears in his eyes, my future
father-in-law hugged me and said “We are very
happy that you have passed our little test. We
couldn’t ask for a better man for our daughter.
Welcome to the family.”
And the moral of this story is: Always keep your
condoms in your car.

Bob walked into a sports bar around 9:58 PM. He sat
down next to a blonde at the bar and stared up
at the TV. The 10 PM news was coming on. The
news crew was covering the story of a man on the
ledge of a large building preparing to jump.
The blonde looked at Bob and said, "Do you think he'll
Bob said, "You know, I bet he'll jump."
The blonde replied, "Well, I bet he won't."
Bob placed a $20 bill on the bar and said, "You're on!"
Just as the blonde placed her money on the bar, the guy
on the ledge did a swan dive off the building,
falling to his death.
The blonde was very upset, but willingly handed her $20
to Bob. "Fair's fair. Here's your money."
Bob replied, "I can't take your money. I saw this
earlier on the 5 PM news, so I knew he would
The blonde replied, "I did, too, but I didn't think
he'd do it again."

Cletus is passing by Billy Bob 's hay barn one day when, through a
gap in the door, he sees Billy Bob doing a slow and sensual
striptease in front of an old John Deere tractor. Buttocks clenched,
he performs a slow pirouette, and gently slides off first the right
strap of his overalls, followed by the left. He then hunches his
shoulders forward and in a classic striptease move, lets his
overalls fall down to his hips, revealing a torn and frayed plaid
Then, grabbing both sides of his shirt, he rips it
apart to reveal his stained T-shirt underneath. With a final
flourish, he tears the T-shirt from his body, and hurls his baseball
cap onto a pile of hay.
Having seen enough, Cletus rushes in and says, "What
the world're ya doing, Billy Bob ?"
"Good grief, Cletus, ya scared the bejeebers out of
me," says an obviously embarrassed Billy Bob. "But me 'n the wife
been havin trouble lately in the bedroom d'partment, and the
therapist suggested I do something sexy to a tractor."

the mother-in-law passed away. The undertaker told them, "You can
have her shipped home for $5,000, or you can bury her here in
the Holy Land for $150.
The man thought about it and told him he would just
have her shipped home. The undertaker asked, "Why would you spend
$5,000 to ship your mother-in-law home, when it would be wonderful
to be buried here and you would spend only $150?

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."
She said, "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.
"That comes to $121.85," said the clerk.
"How come so much? I only bought 5 items."
The clerk replied, "Yeah, but your Mother said
you'd be paying for her things too."

An elderly Italian man lay dying in his bed. While suffering the
agonies of impending death, he suddenly smelled the aroma of his
favorite ravioli wafting up the stairs. He gathered his remaining
strength, and lifted himself from the bed. Gripping
the railing with both hands, he crawled downstairs.
When he reached the bottom of the stairs, he leaned against the door
frame, gazing into the kitchen, where, if not for death's agony, he
would have thought himself already in heaven, for there, spread out
upon waxed paper on the kitchen table were hundreds of his favorite
ravioli. Was it heaven? Or was it one final act of love from his
wife of sixty years, seeing to it that he left this world a happy
He threw himself towards the table, landing on his knees in a
crumpled posture. His parched lips parted, the wondrous taste of the
ravioli was already in his mouth. With
a trembling hand he reached up to the edge of the table, when
suddenly he was smacked with a wooden spoon by his wife who said:
"Va fanculo!" "Questi
sono per il funerale." which
translates as “Back off, these are for the funeral.”

A mortician was working late one night. He examined the body of Mr.
Schwartz, about to be cremated, and made a startling discovery.
Schwartz had the largest private part he had ever seen!
'I'm sorry Mr. Schwartz,' the mortician commented, 'I
can't allow you to be cremated with such an impressive private part.
It must be saved for posterity.
So, he removed it, stuffed it into his briefcase, and
took it home. 'I have something to show you won't believe,' he said
to his wife, opening his briefcase.
'My God!' the wife exclaimed, 'Schwartz is dead!'

A young blonde girl in her late teens,
wanting to earn some extra money for the summer, decided to hire
herself out as a "handy woman" and started canvassing a nearby
well-to-do neighborhood. She went to the front door of the first
house and asked the owner if he had any odd jobs for her to do.
"Well, I guess I could use somebody to paint the
porch," he said. "How much will you charge me?"
Delighted, the girl quickly responded, "How about $50?"
The man agreed and told her that the paint and brushes
and everything she would need were in the garage.
The man's wife, hearing the conversation, said to her
husband, "Does she realize that our porch goes ALL the way around
"That's a bit cynical, isn't it?" he responded.
The wife replied, "You're right. I guess I'm starting
to believe all those dumb blonde jokes."
A few hours later the girl came to the door to collect
"You're finished already?" the startled husband asked.
"Yes," the blonde replied, "and I even had paint left
over, so I gave it two coats."
Impressed, the man reached into his pocket for the $50
and handed it to her, along with a $10 tip.
"Thank you," the girl said. "And by the way, that's not
a Porch, it's a Lexus."

A man and his wife were awakened at 3:00 am by a loud pounding on
the door. The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken
stranger, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push.
"Not a chance," says the husband, "it is 3:00 in the
morning!" and he slams the door and returns to bed.
"Who was that?" asked his wife.
"Just some drunk guy asking for a push," he answers.
"Did you help him?" she asks.
"No, I did not, it's 3am in the morning and it's bloody
pouring rain out there!"
"Well, you have a short memory," says his wife. "Can't
you remember about three months ago when we broke down, and those
two guys helped us? I think you should help him, and you should be
ashamed of yourself! God loves drunk people too you know."
The man does as he is told, gets dressed, and goes out
into the pounding rain.
He calls out into the dark, "Hello, are you still
"Yes," comes back the answer.
"Do you still need a push?" calls out the husband.
"Yes, please!" comes the reply from the dark.
"Where are you?" asks the husband.

There I was, sitting by myself at the bar staring at my untouched
drink. Suddenly, a 6' 8" tattooed biker steps up next to me and
grabs my drink. He then grins at me and gulps down my drink in one
swig. "Well, whatcha gonna do about it?" he says, menacingly, as I
burst into tears.
"This is the worst day of my life," I say to him. "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 poison dissolve Then you, you overgrown horse's ass,
show up and drink the whole thing!”

A young New York blonde woman was so depressed that she decided to
end her life by throwing herself into the ocean, but just before she
could throw herself from the docks, a handsome young man stopped
her. "You have so much to live for," said the man. "I'm a sailor,
and we are off to Italy tomorrow. I can stow you away on my ship.
I'll take care of you, bring you food every-day, and keep you
With nothing to lose, combined with the fact that she
had always wanted to go to Italy, the woman accepted. That night the
sailor brought her aboard and hid her in a small, but comfortable,
compartment in the hold. From that time on, every night he would
bring her three sandwiches, a bottle of red wine, and make love to
her until dawn.
Three weeks later she was discovered by the captain
during a routine inspection. "What are you doing here?" asked the
"l have an arrangement with one of your sailors," she
replied. "He brings me food and I get a free trip to Italy."

"He certainly is," replied the captain. "This is the

car and was pulled over by a woman police officer, who was also a
blond. The blond cop asked to see the blond driver's license. She

'What does it look like?' she finally asked.
The policewoman replied, 'It's square and it has your
picture on it.'
The driver finally found a square mirror in her purse,
looked at it and handed it to the policewoman.
'Here it is,' she said.

Paddy staggered home very late after another
evening with his drinking buddy,. He took off
his shoes to avoid waking his wife, Kathleen. He
tiptoed as quietly as he could toward the stairs
leading to their upstairs bedroom, but misjudged
the bottom step. As he caught himself by
grabbing the banister, his body swung around and
he landed heavily on his rump. A whiskey
bottle in each back pocket broke and made the
landing especially painful.
Managing not to yell, Paddy sprung up, pulled down his
pants, and looked in the hall mirror to see that
his butt cheeks were cut and bleeding. He
managed to quietly find a full box of Band-Aids
and began putting a Band-Aid as best he could on
each place he saw blood. He then hid the now
almost empty Band-Aid box and shuffled and
stumbled his way to bed.
In the morning, Paddy woke up with searing pain in both
his head and butt and Kathleen staring at him
from across the room. She said, 'You were drunk
again last night weren't you?'
Paddy said, 'Why you say such a mean thing?'
'Well,' Kathleen said, 'it could be the open front
door, it could be the broken glass at the bottom
of the stairs, it could be the drops of blood
trailing through the house, it could be your
bloodshot eyes, but mostly ....... it's all

from humanity as possible. He sees the postman once a week and gets

After six months or so of almost total isolation,

One day an Irishman, who had been stranded on a deserted island for
over 10 years, saw a speck on the horizon. He thought to himself,
"It's certainly not a ship". As the speck got closer and closer, he
began to rule out even the possibilities of a small boat or a raft.
Suddenly there strode from the surf a figure clad in a
black wet suit. Putting aside the scuba tanks and mask and zipping
down the top of the wet suit stood a drop-dead gorgeous blonde! She
walked up to the stunned Irishman and said to him, "Tell me, how
long has it been since you've had a good cigar?"
"Ten years," replied the amazed Irishman. With that,
she reached over and unzipped a waterproof pocket on the left sleeve
of her wet suit and pulled out a fresh package of cigars and a
lighter. He took a cigar, slowly lit it, and took a long drag.
"Faith and begorrah," said the castaway, "that is so good! I'd
almost forgotten how great a smoke can be!"
"And how long has it been since you've had a drop of
good Bushmill's Irish Whiskey?" asked the blonde. Trembling, the
castaway replied, "Ten years." Hearing that, the blonde reached
over to her right sleeve, unzipped a pocket there and removed a
flask and handed it to him. He opened the flask and took a long
drink. "'Tis nectar of the gods!" shouted the Irishman. " 'Tis
At this point the gorgeous blonde started to slowly
unzip the long front of her wet suit, right down the middle. She
looked at the trembling man and asked, "And how long has it been
since you played around?" With tears in his eyes, the Irishman fell
to his knees and sobbed, "Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Don't tell me that
you've got golf clubs in there too!"

A doctor examining a woman who had been rushed to the Emergency
Room, took the husband aside, and said, 'I don't like the looks of
your wife at all.'
'Me neither doc,' said the husband. 'But she's a great cook and

After being married for 44 years, I took a careful look my wife one

you're not holding up your side of things."
My wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go

a graveside service for a homeless man who had no family
or friends. The funeral was to be held at a cemetery in the remote countryside
and this man would be the first to be laid to rest
there. As I was not familiar with the backwoods area, I became
lost and being a typical man, did not stop for
directions. I finally arrived an hour late. I saw the backhoe
and the crew who were eating lunch but the hearse
was nowhere in sight.
I apologized to the workers for my tardiness and
stepped to the side of
the open grave where I saw the vault lid already
in place. I assured the workers I would not hold them
up for long but this was the proper thing to do. The
workers gathered around, still eating their lunch. I played out my
heart and soul.
As I played the workers began to weep. I played and I
played like I'd never played before, from 'Going Home'
and 'The Lord is My Shepherd' to 'Flowers of the
Forest.' I closed the lengthy session with 'Amazing Grace' and walked to my car.
As I was opening the door and taking off my coat, I

An atheist was taking a walk through the
woods when he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. He turned
just in time to see a 7-foot grizzly charge towards him. He ran as
fast as he could, but the bear was closing in on him. Then he tripped
and fell on the ground. Rolling himself over, he saw the bear right on
top of him, reaching for him with his left paw and raising his right
paw to strike him.
At that instant, the atheist cried out: “Oh my God!...”
Time stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent.
As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out
of the sky: “You deny my existence for all these years, and teach
others I don’t exist. Do you expect me to help you out of this
predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?"
The atheist looked directly into the light: “It would
be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian
now, but perhaps could you make the bear a Christian.”

sounds of the forest resumed.
And then the bear dropped his right paw, brought both
paws together and bowed his head and spoke:

thy bounty, through Christ our Lord, Amen.”

rednecks, had little sense, but possessed ample ability to satisfy a
female of any species. The park administrator thought they might
have a solution. Eddie was approached with a proposition.
Would he be willing to mate with the gorilla for $500.00?
Eddie showed some interest, but said he would
have to think the matter over carefully. The following day,
Eddie announced that he would accept their offer, but only under the
following four conditions.
"First," he said, "I don't want to have to kiss her on
the lips." The park administrator quickly agreed to this
"Second," Eddie said, "you
must never tell anyone about this." The park administrator
again readily agreed to this condition.
"Third," Eddie said, "I want
all the offspring to be raised Southern Baptist." Once
again the administrator agreed.
And last of all Eddie stated "You've got
to give me another week to come up with the $500.00."

The other day I went up to our local Christian bookstore and saw a
"Honk if you love Jesus" bumper sticker. I was feeling
particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling
choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting. So I
bought the sticker and put it on my bumper.
Boy, I'm glad I did, what an uplifting experience that
followed...... I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection,
just lost in thought about the Lord and how good He is, and I didn't
notice that the light had changed. It is a good thing someone else
loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed. I
found that lots of people love Jesus!
Why while I was sitting there, the guy behind started honking like
crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, "For
the love of God! Go! Go! Go! Jesus Christ Go!" What an
exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus! Everyone started honking! I
just leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all
those loving people. I even honked my horn a few times to
share in the love!
There must have been a man from
Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about

and gave him the good luck sign back. My grandson burst out
laughing. Why, even he was enjoying this religious experience!
A couple of people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that
they got out of their cars and started walking towards me. I bet
they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended but this is when I

So, I waved at all my brothers and

a priest were out for a Sunday afternoon flight on a small private
plane. Suddenly, the plane developed engine trouble. In spite of the
best efforts of the pilot the plane started to go down. Finally the
pilot grabbed a parachute, yelled to the passengers that they had
better jump, and bailed out.
Unfortunately there were only three
parachutes remaining. The doctor grabbed one and said "I'm a
doctor, I save lives, so I must live," and jumped out.
The lawyer then said, "I'm a
lawyer and lawyers are the smartest people in the world, I deserve
to live!" He grabbed a parachute and jumped.
The priest looked at the little boy
and said, "My son, I've lived a long and full life. You are
young and have your whole life ahead of you. Take the last parachute
and live in peace".
The little boy handed the parachute
back to the priest and said, "Not to worry, Father. The 'smartest
man in the world' just took off with my back pack."

A frog goes
into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate
that her name is Patricia Whack. “Miss Whack, I’d like to get a
$30,000 loan for my vacation”
looks at the frog in disbelief and asks his name. The frog says his
name is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it’s OK
because he knows the bank manager.
explains that he’ll need to secure the loan with some collateral.
The frog says “sure” and produces a tiny porcelain elephant.
Pattie goes to speak to the bank manager. She tells him,
“There’s a frog named Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know
you and wants to borrow $30,000, and he wants to use this porcelain
elephant as collateral. What should I do?”
The bank manager replies,
“It’s a knickknack, Pattie Whack.
Give the frog a loan.
His old man’s a Rolling Stone.”

An Afghanistan diplomat visiting the
US for the first time was being wined and dined by the
State Department. The Grand Emir wasn't used to the salt in American
food (French fries, cheese, etc.) and was constantly sending his
man-servant, Abdul, to fetch him a glass of water.
Time and again, Abdul would scamper
off and return with a glass of water. But finally he returned
"Abdul, you son of an ugly
camel, where is my water??" demanded the Grand

One," stammered the wretched Abdul, "but a man is sitting

sons left home, went out on their own and prospered. Getting
back together, they discussed the gifts that they were able to
give to their elderly mother.
first said, "I built a big house for our mother."
second said, "I sent her a Mercedes with a driver."
third smiled and said, "I've got you both beat. You know
how Mom enjoys the Bible and you know she can't see very well. I
sent her a brown parrot that can recite the entire Bible. It
took 20 monks in a monastery 12 years to teach him. I had to
pledge to contribute $100,000 a year for 10 years, but it was
worth it. Mom just has to name the chapter and verse and the
parrot will recite it."
thereafter, Mom sent out her letters of thanks: She wrote the
first son, "Milton, the house you built is so huge. I live
in only one room, but I have to clean the whole house."
wrote the second son, "Marvin, I am too old to travel. I
stay home all the time, so I never use the Mercedes. And the
driver is so rude!"
wrote the third son, "Dearest Melvin, you were the only son
to have the good sense to know what your mother likes. The
chicken was delicious.
