A priest at a parochial school,
wanting to point out the proper behavior for church, was trying to elicit
from the youngsters rules that their parents might give before taking them
to a nice restaurant.
"Don't play with your food," one second-grader cited.
"Don't be loud," said another, and so on.
"And what rule do your parents give you before you go out to eat?"
the priest inquired of one little boy.
Without batting an eye, the child replied, "Order something

The room was full of pregnant women and
their partners, and the Lamaze class was in full swing. The instructor was
teaching the women how to breathe properly, along with informing the men how to
give the necessary assurances at this stage of the plan.
The teacher then announced, "Ladies, exercise is good for you. Walking is
especially beneficial. And, gentlemen, it wouldn't hurt you to take the time to
go walking with your partner!"
The room got quiet.
Finally, a man in the middle of the group raised his hand.
"Yes?" replied the teacher.
"Is it alright if she carries a golf bag while we walk?"

A limousine had encountered a red
traffic light and was waiting for it to change when a small Mini Cooper also
drives up. The haughty businessman in the back of the limousine
started bragging to the Mini Cooper owner that his was the best car that
money could buy.
"This is the best limo that money can buy. It has ABS, airbags
for all passengers, automatic climate control, onboard computer control
system, photo chromatic glass, mini bar, a television with satellite dish
embedded in the roof, blah blah blah...."
At this point the Mini Cooper owner interrupted.
"But do you have a video in there?"
The light changed at this point, and the limo driver pulled off. The
businessman in back felt a bit down that he didn't have this simple item,
and that very day had one installed in the limo.
A few days passed by, and again the limo was at a traffic light when the
businessman spotted the Mini Cooper again. It was pulled over to a
side, with the glasses all steamed up, and steam coming from a half open
window. Upon seeing this, the businessman got out of his car and
knocked on the window of the Mini Cooper. After a few moments, the
Mini Cooper owner poked his head out (which was dripping with water, by the

The Mini Cooper-man responded: "You got me out of the shower for

A man from the East Coast is visiting
California for the first time, and is conversing with a California native.
He says, "I'll be visiting La Jolla (lah-JOLL-a) next week,"
whereupon the Californian replies, "Oh, you mean,

I'm staying in El Cajon (el-ca-JOHN)," and again the Californian
corrects him, "You mean, El Ca *HONE*?"

While proudly showing off his new
fraternity house to friends, a college student led the way into the den.
"What is the big brass gong and hammer for?" one of his friends
"That's the talking clock", the man replied, with a grin.
"Let me show you how it works!" And with that, he gave the gong an

The weather was very hot and this man
wanted desperately to take a dive in a nearby lake. He didn't bring his
swimming outfit, but who cared? He was all alone. So he undressed and got
into the water.
After some delightful minutes of cool swimming, a pair of ladies walked onto
the shore in his direction. He panicked, got out of the water and grabbed a
bucket lying in the sand nearby. He held the bucket in front of his private
parts and sighed with relief.
The ladies got nearby and looked at him. He felt awkward and wanted to move.
Then one of the ladies said: 'You know , I have a special gift, I can read
'Impossible', said the embarrassed man, 'You really know what I think?'
'Yes', the lady replied, 'Right now, I bet you think that the bucket you're
holding has a bottom.'

the office. "Rob," he said, "you've been with the company for a

Negotiations between union members and
their employer were at an impasse. The union denied that their workers were
flagrantly abusing their contract's sick-leave provisions.
One morning at the bargaining table, the company's chief negotiator held
aloft the morning edition of the newspaper, "This man," he
announced, "Called in Sick yesterday!"
There on the sports page, was a photo of the supposedly ill employee, who
had just won a local golf tournament with an excellent score.
The silence in the room was broken by
a union negotiator. "Wow," he said. "Just think of what
kind of score he could have had if he hadn't been sick!"

The 12-year-old boy stood patiently beside
the clock counter while the store clerk waited on all of the adult customers.
Finally he got around to the youngster, who made his purchase and hurried out to
the curb, where his father was impatiently waiting in his car.
"What took you so long, son?" he asked.
"The man waited on everybody in the store before me," the boy replied.
"But I got even."
"I wound and set all the alarm clocks while I was waiting," the
youngster explained happily. "It's going to be a mighty noise place
at eight o'clock."

George loved the race track.
One day he was there betting on the ponies and losing his shirt when he
noticed this priest who stepped out onto the track and blessed the
forehead of one of the horses lining up for the 4th race. Lo and
behold, this horse - a very long shot - won the race.
George was most interested to see what the priest did the next race. Sure
enough, he watched the priest step out onto the track as the 5th race
horses lined up, and placed his blessing on the forehead of one of the
George made a beeline for the window and placed a small bet on the horse.
Again, even though another long shot, the horse the priest had blessed,
won the race. George collected his winnings and anxiously waited to
see which horse the priest bestowed his blessing on for the 6th race.
The priest showed, blessed a horse, George bet on it, and won!
George was elated.
As the day went on, the priest continued blessing one of the horses,
and it always came in first.
George began to pull in some serious money, and by the last race, he
knew his wildest dreams were going to come true. He made a quick
stop at the ATM and withdrew every penny he owned, and awaited the
priest's blessing that would tell him which horse to place the bet on.
True to his pattern, the priest stepped out onto the track before the last
race, and anointed the forehead, eyes, ears and hooves of one of the
horses, George placed his bet - every cent he owned - and watched, the
horse come in dead last.
George was dumbfounded. He made his way to the track, and when he
found the priest, he demanded, "What happened, Father? All day
you blessed horses and they won. The last race, you bless a horse
and he loses. Now I've lost my life savings, thanks to you!!"
The priest nodded wisely and said, "That's the problem with you
Protestants...........you can't tell the difference between a simple
blessing and the Last Rites!

A newcomer to the political
scene was campaigning in the backwoods for the office of assemblyman.
Outside a ramshackle house, he saw a young man milking a cow. He
approached the man, ready to make his pitch for a vote. Just as he was
getting started, an old man called from inside the house. "Luke, get
in the house. And who is that guy you're talking to?"
"Says he's a politician, Pop," Luke said.
"In that case, you'd better bring the cow inside with you."

One day an ape
escaped from the Bronx Zoo. They searched for him everywhere, in every
borough. They announced his disappearance on the radio and television as well
as the newspapers. But, no one reported seeing the ape.
At last, he was discovered in the New York Public Library. They found the ape
sitting at a desk in the reading room with two books spread out in front of
him. The ape was reading with great concentration. One book was the Bible; the
other written by Darwin.
The zoo keepers asked the ape what he was doing.
The ape replied, "I'm trying to figure out whether I am my brother's
keeper or whether I am my keeper's brother."

Pretend . . .
scheduling mix up, a man and a woman who have never met before find themselves
in the same sleeping carriage of a train. It's late, the train is full, and
everyone else is already asleep. After the initial embarrassment, they both
manage to get to sleep; the woman on the top bunk, the man on the lower.
In the middle of the night the woman leans over and says, "I'm sorry to
bother you, but I'm awfully cold and I was wondering if you could possibly
pass me another blanket."
The man leans out and, with a glint in his eye, says, "I've got a better
idea ... let's pretend we're married."
"Why not," giggles the woman.
"Good," he replies. "Get your own blanket."

plaque. "What is this?" he asked.
"Well, son, it's a memorial to all the young men and women who died

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is advising bikers, hikers, hunters and
fishermen to take extra precautions and keep alert for bears while in the
field. It is advised that outdoorsmen wear small bells on their clothing and
shoes to alert bears in the area who aren't expecting them. It is also advised
that outdoorsmen carry Pepper Spray at all times in case of a bear encounter.
It is advised to watch out for fresh bear sign activity. You should be able to
recognize the difference between Black Bear and Brown Bear sign. Black Bear
sign is smaller and contains berries, Brown Bear sign is larger and contains
many small bells and smells like pepper.
