On My Flight
Ladies and gentlemen,
this is your captain speaking.
If you look out of the window on the port, or left, side of the aircraft you
will see that the inner engine is on fire just below the fuel tanks in the wing.
If you look out at the starboard, or right, wing you will observe that a
widening crack has developed at the wing root, making it unlikely that the wing
will remain attached to the fuselage.
If you look down at the surface of the sea over which the aircraft is flying,
you will notice a small orange dot. This is a life-raft. In it are your
co-pilot, your flight engineer and myself.
This has been a recorded announcement."

Golden Wedding Anniversary
An aged farmer and
his wife were leaning against the edge of their pig-pen when the old woman
wistfully recalled that the next week would mark their golden wedding

The farmer scratched his grizzled head. "Gee, Ethel," he finally
answered, "I don't see why the pig should take the blame for something
that happened fifty years ago."

was waiting for a fraternity brother who was dropping his girlfriend off at
her dorm. It was curfew, and the housemother flicked the porch light on and
off to hasten their good-by's. Getting no results, she marched out to the
porch, where the couple was locked in a heated embrace, and tapped the young
man on the shoulder. "Sorry, lady," he said, briefly looking up.
"You'll just have to wait in line like everyone else."

A group of friends
who prided themselves on their intelligence set out to have a contest of wits.
Each person in turn asked a question, and anyone who volunteered an answer
that was wrong dropped out. If no one could answer, the questioner himself had
to answer, and if he was wrong, he dropped out.
Each dropout had to put $5 into the pot.
Eventually the matter boiled down to Thompson and Brown, and the erudition of
each one boiled up so that both were held even for half an hour.
Finally Thompson said, "How does a gopher dig a hole without leaving a
mound of dirt at the lip?"
Brown thought about that and said, "I can't answer that. However, since
it's your question, you had better answer it."
Thompson said coolly, as he reached for the accumulated pile of bills.
"Easy. The gopher starts at the bottom of the hole and that's where he
leaves the dirt."
"Hold on," said Brown heatedly, grasping Thompson's wrist to prevent
him from taking the pot. "How does the gopher get to the bottom of the
hole in the first place?"
"That's your question," said Thompson as he took the money.

A feisty 76 year-old
woman had to call a furnace repairman.
After a quick inspection, the man put some oil into the motor and handed her a
$70 bill for labor.
"Labor charges! One hour?" she exclaimed. "It only took you
The repairman explained that his company had a minimum one-hour charge on every

and she handed him a rake.
The repairman spent the next 55 minutes in her yard bagging leaves.

If you love
something, set it free.
If it comes back, it was, and always will be yours.
If it never returns, it was never yours to begin with.
If it just sits in your living room, messes up your stuff, eats your food, uses
your telephone, takes your money, and never behaves as if you actually set it
free in the first place, you either married it or gave birth to it!

The Mouths of Babes
A mother was
preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin, 5, and Ryan, 3. The boys began
to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the
opportunity for a moral lesson. If Jesus were sitting here, He would
say, "Let my brother have the first pancake. I can wait."
Kevin turned to his
younger brother and said, "Ryan, you be Jesus."

Religion are Bras?
A man walked into the
ladies department of Macy's and shyly walked up to the woman behind the counter
and said, "I'd like to buy a bra for my wife."
"What type of bra?" asked the clerk.
"Type?" inquires the man, "There is more than one type?"
The saleslady said, "Look around," as she showed a sea of bras in
every shape, size, color and material imaginable. "Actually, even with all
variety, there are really only four types of bras to choose from."
Relieved, the man asked about the types.
The saleslady replied, "There are the Catholic, the Salvation Army, the
Presbyterian, and the Baptist types. Which one would you prefer?"
Now completely befuddled, the man asked about the differences between
The saleslady responded, "It is all really quite simple;
The Catholic type supports the masses.
The Salvation Army type lifts the fallen.
The Presbyterian type keeps them staunch and upright,&

Can You Pass?
The huge college
freshman decided to try out for the football team. "Can you tackle?"
asked the coach.
"Watch this," said the freshman, who proceeded to run smack into a
telephone pole, shattering it to splinters.
"Wow," said the coach. "I'm impressed. Can you run?"
"Of course I can run," said the freshman. He was off like a shot, and,
in just over nine seconds, he had run a hundred yard dash.
"Great!" enthused the coach. "But can you pass a football?"
The freshman hesitated for a few seconds. "Well, sir," he said,
"if I can swallow it, I can probably pass it."

During a dinner
party, the hosts' two little children entered the dining room totally nude and
walked slowly around the table.
The parents were so embarrassed that they pretended nothing was happening and
kept the conversation going. The guests cooperated and also continued as if
nothing extraordinary was happening.
After going all the way around the room, the children left, and there was a
moment of silence at the table, during which one child was heard to say,
"See, I told you, it IS vanishing cream!"

It was a sunny
Sunday morning on the course and he was beginning his pre-shot routine,
visualizing his upcoming shot, when a voice came over the clubhouse
loudspeaker: "Would the gentleman on the woman's tee please back up to

Our man was still
deep in his routine, seemingly impervious to the interruption. Again the
announcement: "Would the MAN on the WOMEN'S tee kindly back up to the

ignored the guy and kept concentrating, when once more the man yelled:

A fire started on
some grassland near a farm in Indiana. The fire department from the nearby
town was called to put the fire out. The fire proved to be more than the small
town fire department could handle, so someone suggested that a rural volunteer
fire department be called. Though there was doubt that they would be of
any assistance, the call was made.
The volunteer fire department arrived in a dilapidated old fire truck. They
drove straight towards the fire and stopped in the middle of the flames. The
volunteer firemen jumped off the truck and frantically started spraying water
in all directions. Soon they had snuffed out the center of the fire, breaking
the blaze into two easily controllable parts.
The farmer was so impressed with the volunteer fire department's work and so
grateful that his farm had been spared, that he presented the volunteer fire
department with a check for $1000. A local news reporter asked the volunteer
fire captain what the department planned to do with the funds.
"That should be obvious," he responded, "the first thing we're
gonna do is get the brakes fixed on that stupid fire truck."

In a high school gym
class, all the girls are lined up against one wall, and all the boys against the
opposite wall. Every ten seconds, they walk toward each other exactly half
the remaining distance between them.
A mathematician, a physicist, and an engineer are asked, "When will the
girls and boys meet?"
Physicist: "In an infinite amount of time."
Engineer: "Well... in about two minutes, they'll be close enough for
all practical purposes."

rummaging under the sink. Exasperated she asked, " Grandma what does

The husband turned on his CB and informed the trucker about his loose wheel.
The wife, in a nasty mood because of a headache, was irritated by the
incessant squealing of the CB. "Why do you always get so much

they see two people going into the house. Time passes. After a

"How was your
golf game, dear?" asked Jack's wife Tracy.
"Well, I was hitting pretty well, but my eyesight's gotten so bad I
couldn't see where the ball went."
"But you're seventy-five years old, Jack!" admonished his wife,
"Why don't you take my brother Scott along?"
"But he's eighty-five and doesn't even play golf anymore," protested
"But he's got perfect eyesight. He could watch your ball," Tracy
The next day Jack teed off with Scott looking on. Jack swung, and the ball
disappeared down the middle of the fairway.
"Do you see it?" asked Jack.
"Yup," Scott answered.
"Well, where is it?" yelled Jack, peering off into the distance.

Passengers on a
plane are waiting for the flight to leave. The entrance opens, and two men
walk up the aisle, dressed in pilot uniforms. Both are wearing dark glasses.
One is using a seeing-eye dog, and the other is tapping his way up the aisle
with a cane.
Nervous laughter spreads through the cabin, but the men enter the cockpit, the
door closes, and the engines start.
The passengers begin glancing nervously, searching for some sign that this is
just a little practical joke. None is forthcoming. The plane moves faster and
faster down the runway, and people at the windows realize that they're headed
straight for the water at the edge of the airport.
As it begins to look as though the plane will never take off, that it will
plow into the water, screams of panic fill the cabin. But at that moment, the
plane lifts smoothly into the air.
Up in the cockpit, the co-pilot turns to the pilot and says, "You know,
Bob, one of these days, they're going to scream too late, and we're all gonna

Saddam Hussein was
sitting in his office wondering whom to invade next when his telephone rang.
"Hallo! Mr. Hussein," a heavily accented voice said. "This is
Paddy up in County Cavan, Ireland. I am ringing to inform you that we are
officially declaring war on you!"
"Well, Paddy," Saddam replied, "this is indeed important news!
Tell me, how big is your army?"
"At this moment in time," said Paddy after a moment's calculation,
"there is myself, my cousin Sean, my next door neighbor Gerry, and the
entire dominoes team from the pub -- that makes eight!"
Saddam sighed. "I must tell you Paddy that I have a million men in my
army waiting to move on my command."
"Begorrah!" said Paddy, "I'll have to ring you back!"
Sure enough, the next day Paddy rang back. "Right Mr. Hussein, the war is
still on! We have managed to acquire some equipment!"
"And what equipment would that be, Paddy?" Saddam asked.
"Well, we have two combine harvesters, a bulldozer and Murphy's tractor
from the farm."
Once more Saddam sighed. "I must tell you, Paddy, that I have sixteen
thousand tanks, fourteen thousand armored personnel carriers, and my army has
increased to two million men since we last spoke."
"Really?" said Paddy "I'll have to ring you back!"
Sure enough, Paddy called again the next day. "Right Mr. Hussein, I am
sorry to tell you that we have had to call off the war."
"I'm sorry to hear that," said Saddam. "Why the sudden change
"Well," said Paddy "We've had a look at the Geneva Convention,
all had a chat, and there's no way we can feed two million prisoners."
