Fatal Things to Say to Your Pregnant Wife

"Not to imply anything, but I don't think the kid weighs forty pounds."
"I sure hope your thighs aren't gonna stay that flabby forever!"
"Well, couldn't they induce labor? The 25th is the Super Bowl."
"Damn if you ain't about five pounds away from a surprise visit from that Richard Simmons fella."
"Whoa! For a minute there, I thought I woke up next to Willard Scott!"
"Are your ankles supposed to look like that?"
"Get your *own* ice cream, Buddha!"
"Jeeez, you're awfully puffy looking today."
"Maybe we should name the baby after my secretary, Tawney."
"Retaining water? Yeah, like the Hoover Dam retains water."
"Sure you'll get your figure back -- we'll just search 1985 where you left it."
"Sure, the doctor said you're eating for two - but he didn't mean two orcas."
"Honey -- Come show the guys your Brando impression!"
"Roseanne! What have you done with my wife?!"
"How come you're so much fatter than the other chicks in Lamaze?"
"Why in the *world* would I want to rub your feet?"
"That's not a bun in the oven -- it's the whole friggin' bakery!"
"You know, now that you mention it, you *are* getting fat and unattractive."

In the men's room at work, the boss placed a sign directly above the sink. It had a single word on it: "Think!"

The next day, when he went to the men's room, he looked at the sign, and right below it,   immediately above the soap dispenser, someone had carefully lettered another sign which read, "Thoap!"

A reporter was interviewing a 104 year-old woman: "And what do you think is the best thing about being 104?" the reporter asked.
She simply replied, "No peer pressure".


We spend the first six years teaching our children to walk and talk, and the next fifteen years telling them to be quiet and sit down.


Sometimes we need to pause and remember what life is about.

There was a great loss recently in the entertainment world. Larry LaPrise, the Detroit native who wrote the song "Hokey Pokey," died last week at 83. It was especially difficult for the family.
They had trouble keeping him in the casket. They'd put his left foot in and....well you know the rest...

Careful What You...

A man is walking down the beach and comes across an old bottle. He picks it up, pulls out the cork and out pops a genie. The genie says, "Thank you for freeing me from the bottle. In
return I will grant you three wishes."

The man says "Great! I always dreamed of this and I know exactly what I want. First, I want one billion dollars in a Swiss bank account." Poof! There is a flash of light and a piece of paper with account numbers appears in his hand.

He continues, "Next, I want a brand new red Ferrari right here." Poof! There is a flash
of light and a bright red brand-new Ferrari appears right next to him.

He continues, "Finally, I want to be irresistible to women." Poof! There is a flash of light and he turns into a box of chocolates.

The Joy of Having Kids

Trying to dress an active little one is like trying to thread a sewing machine while it's running.

There are only two things a child will share willingly communicable diseases and their mother's age.

Cleaning your house while your kids are at home is like trying to shovel the driveway during a snowstorm.

Kids really brighten a household; they never turn off any lights.

An alarm clock is a device for waking people up who don't have small kids.

Shouting to make your kids obey is like using the horn to steer your car, and you get about the same results!

Any child can tell you that the sole purpose of a middle name is so he can tell when he's really in trouble.

Following Orders

This woman was talking to her friend when she got back from her recent trip to Spokane, Washington.  Her friend asked her how she liked Spokane.

She answered, "I don't know, I never got there." 

The friend says, "You never got there... what do you mean?" 

She answers, "You know me, I have to stop at every rest area and they all say 'clean bathrooms', well. . . it takes longer that you think!"

In Sickness and...

This woman's husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for months, yet she stayed by his bedside every single day. One day, when  he finally came to, he motioned for her to come nearer.

As she sat by him, he whispered, eyes full of tears;"You know  what? You have been with me through all the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there.  When I got shot, you were by my side. When we lost the house, you stayed right here. When my health started failing, you were still by my side.... You know what???"

"What dear", she gently asked, smiling as her heart began to fill  with warmth.

" I think you're bad luck".

Golf Ball

These two guys were approaching the first tee.
The first guy goes into his golf bag to get a ball and says to his friend, "Hey, why don't you try this ball?"
He draws a green golf ball out of his bag. "You can't lose it." 
His friend replies, "What do you mean you can't lose it?!"
The first man replies, "I'm serious, you can't lose it. If you hit it into the woods, it makes a beeping sound, if you hit it into the water it produces bubbles, and if you hit it on the fairway, smoke comes up in order for you to find it." 
Obviously, his friend doesn't believe him, but he shows him all the possibilities until he is convinced. The friend says, "Wow! That's incredible!  Where did you get that ball?!"  
The man replies, "I found it."

Power of Women

There were 11 people hanging onto a rope that came down from a helicopter. Ten were men and one woman.  They all decided that one person should get off because if they didn't the rope would break and everyone would die.

No one could decide who should go so finally the woman gave a really touching speech saying how she would give up her life to save the others, because women were used to giving up things for their husbands and children and giving in to men.

All of the men started clapping.

Death by Beer

Her first husband drowned in a big vat of beer."
"Oh, that must have been just horrible for him!"
"Couldn't have been that bad -- he climbed out twice for pretzels."

The Boss

My boss was complaining in a staff meeting the other day that he wasn't getting any respect.  Later that morning he went to a local card and novelty shop and bought a small sign that read, "I'm the Boss". He then taped it to his office door.

Later that day when he returned from lunch, he found that someone had  taped a note to the sign that said. "Your wife called, she wants her sign back!"

The Test

Two young engineers applied for a single position at a computer company. They both had the same qualifications. In order to determine which individual  to hire, the applicants were asked to take a test by the Department manager.
Upon completion of the test, both men missed only one of the questions.  The manager went to the first applicant and said, "Thank you for your interest, but we've decided to give the job to the other applicant."
"And why would you be doing that? We both got 9 questions correct," asked the rejected applicant.
"We have based our decision not on the correct answers, but on the question you missed," said the Department manager.
"And just how would one incorrect answer be better than the other?" the rejected applicant inquired.
"Simple," said the Department manager, "Your fellow applicant put down on question #5, 'I don't know.' You put down, 'Neither do I.'"

Gourmet Mustard

As ham sandwiches go, it was perfection. A thick slab of ham, a fresh bun, crisp lettuce and plenty of expensive, light brown, gourmet mustard.

The corners of my jaw aching in anticipation, I carried it to the picnic table in our backyard, picked it up with both hands but was stopped by my wife suddenly at my side. "Hold Johnny (our six-week-old son) while I get my sandwich," she said.

I had him balanced between my left elbow and shoulder and was reaching again for the ham sandwich when I noticed a streak of mustard on my fingers.

I love mustard.

I had no napkin.

I licked it off.

It wasn't mustard.

No man ever put a baby down faster. It was the first and only time I have sprinted with my tongue protruding.  With a washcloth in each hand I did the sort of routine shoeshine boys do, only I did it on my tongue.

Later my wife said, "Now you know why they call that mustard 'Poupon.'"

Portraying The Masters

Steven Spielberg was discussing his new project - an action docudrama about famous composers starring top movie stars. Sylvester Stallone, Steven Segall, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger were all present.
Spielberg strongly desired the box office 'oomph' of these superstars, so he was prepared to allow them to select whatever composers they would portray, as long as they were very famous.
"Well," started Stallone, "I've always admired Mozart.  I would love to play him."
"Chopin has always been my favorite, and my image would improve if people saw me playing the piano," said Willis. "I'll play him."
"I've always been partial to Strauss and his waltzes," said Segall.   "I'd like to play him."
Spielberg was very pleased with these choices.  "Sounds splendid." Then, looking at Schwarzenegger, he asked, "Who do you want to be, Arnold?"
So Arnold says, "I'll be Bach."

Prehistoric Tech Support
(A Classic)

The tech support problem dates back to long before the industrial revolution, when primitive tribesmen beat out a rhythm on drums to communicate:

This fire help. Me Groog.

Me Lorto. Help. Fire not work.

You have flint and stone?


You hit them together?


What happen?

Fire not work.

It's Her Problem

A wild-eyed man dressed in a Napoleonic costume and hiding his right hand inside his coat entered the psychiatrist's office and nervously exclaimed, "Doctor, I need your help right away."
"I can see that," retorted the doctor. "Lie down on that couch and tell me your problem."
"I don't have any problem," the man snapped. "In fact, as Emperor of France I have everything I could possibly want money, women, power -- everything! But I'm afraid my wife, Josephine, is in deep mental trouble."
"I see," said the psychiatrist, humoring his distraught patient. "And what seems to be her main problem?"
"For some strange reason," answered the unhappy man, "she thinks she's Mrs. Schwartz."

Great One Liners

Be nice to your kids. They'll choose your nursing home.

Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder...

3 kinds of people: those who can count & those who can't.

Why is "abbreviation" such a long word?

Don't use a big word where a diminutive one will suffice.

Every morning is the dawn of a new error...

For people who like peace and quiet: a phoneless cord.

I can see clearly now, the brain is gone...

Dalmatian Duties

A school bus full of kindergarten students was taking the children home one day when a fire truck zoomed past. Sitting in the front seat of the fire truck was a Dalmatian. The children began discussing the dog's duties.
"They use him to keep crowds back," said one youngster.
"No," said another, "he's just for good luck."
A third child came to a different conclusion. "They use the dog," she said firmly, "to find the fire hydrant."

Selective Speaking

An old lady tried in vain to teach her parrot to speak.  But for 20 years it uttered not a single word.  One day it squawked, "I can't eat this cabbage. It's full of insects!"
"You can talk!" cried the woman.  "Why haven't you said anything for 20 years?  What inspired you to speak up today?"
"SQUAWK!  There hasn't been anything to complain about until today," the parrot replied.

A Mafia Godfather, accompanied by his attorney, walks into a room to meet with his former accountant.
The Godfather asks the accountant, "Where is the 3 million bucks you embezzled from me?"  The accountant does not answer.
The Godfather asks again, "Where is the 3 million bucks you embezzled from me?"
The attorney interrupts, "Sir, the man is a deaf mute and cannot understand you, but I can interpret for you."
The Godfather says, "Well ask him where my damm money is!"  The attorney, using sign language, asks the accountant where the 3 million dollars is.
The accountant signs back, "I don't know what you are talking about."
The attorney interprets to the Godfather, "He doesn't know what you are talking about."
The Godfather pulls out a 9 millimeter pistol, puts it to the temple of the accountant, cocks the trigger and says, "Ask him again where my damn money is!"
The attorney signs to the accountant, "He wants to know where it is!"
The accountant signs back, "OK! OK! OK!  The money is hidden in a brown suitcase behind the shed in my backyard!"
The Godfather says, "Well....what did he say?"

Brother John

Brother John entered the 'Monastery of Silence' and the Chief Priest said, "Brother, this is a silent monastery, you are welcome here as long as you like, but you may not speak until I direct you to do so."
Brother John lived in the monastery for a full year before the Chief Priest said to him: "Brother John, you have been here a year now, you may speak two words."
Brother John said, "Hard Bed."
"I'm sorry to hear that" the Chief Priest said. "We will get you a better bed."
The next year, Brother John was called by the Chief Priest. "You may say another two words Brother John."
"Cold Food," said Brother John, and the Chief Priest assured him that the food would be better in the future.
On his third anniversary at the monastery, the Chief Priest again called Brother John into his office. "Two words you may say today."
"I Quit," said Brother John.
"It is probably for the best." said the Chief Priest. "All you have done since you got here is complain."

"No, this is Knott."

"Please tell me your name."

"Will Knott."

Whereupon they both hung up.
