The Best Position to Pray

Three neighbors  were discussing the proper position and attitude for prayer. One said, "You should be on your knees with your head bowed in reverence to the Almighty."
The second man spoke up and said, "Remember that you were created in God's image.   The position in which to pray is to stand up looking into the heavens into the face of God and talk to Him as a child to his father."
The third man spoke up and said, "I don't know about those positions, but the finest praying I ever did was upside down in a well."

A woman woke in the middle of the night to find her husband missing from their bed. In the stillness of the house, she could hear a muffled sound downstairs. She went downstairs and looked all around, still not finding her husband. Listening again, she could definitely hear moaning.
She went down to the basement to find her husband, crouched in the corner facing the wall, sobbing. What's wrong with you?" She asked him.
"Remember when your father caught us having sex when you were 16?" he replied. "And remember he said, I had two choices: I could either marry you, or spend the next 20 years in prison."
Baffled, she said, "Yes, I remember, so?"

"I would have gotten out today."

Careful What You Wish For

A couple had been married for 25 years and were celebrating their 60th birthdays, which fell on the same day.
During the celebration a fairy appeared and said that because they had been such a loving couple for all 25 years, she would give them one wish each.
The wife wanted to travel around the world. The fairy waved her hand, and Poofff! She had the tickets in her hand.
Next, it was the husband's turn. He paused for a moment, then said shyly, "Well, I'd like to have a woman 30 years younger than me."
The fairy picked up her wand, and Poofff!  He was ninety.

Nervous About Flying

A man has an hour to kill before his flight to Los Angeles.  He decides to kill some time at an airport bar.  He walks in and sits down next to a clearly nervous guy, who has three empty whisky glasses in front of him.   The man introduces himself to the nervous guy and buys him a drink.
The man asks, "Nervous about flying?"
The nervous guy replies, "N-n-nervous?  I'm t-terrified.  I j-just know the p-plane is g-going t-to crash and we're g-going to d-die."
"Is this your first time flying?"
"N-no, I fly c-cross-c-country all the t-time.  It's m-my job."
"Why don't you just ask your boss if you can drive cross-country?"
"H-he would never l-let me do that"
"Why not?" asks the man.
The nervous guy replies, "B-because, I'm the p-pilot."

A professor was walking along a very narrow street when he came face to face with a rival professor. The street was too narrow for two to pass.
The rival, pulling himself up to his full height, said haughtily, "I never make way for fools !"
Smiling, the professor stepped aside and said,  "I always do."

The Next Best Thing

Three old men were sitting around and talking.   The 80 year-old said, "The best thing that could happen to me would just to be able to have a good pee.  I stand there for twenty minutes, and it dribbles and hurts.  I have to go over and over again."
The 85 year-old said, "The best thing that could happen to me is if I could have one good bowel movement.  I take every kind of laxative I can get my hands on and it's still a problem."
Then the 90 year-old said, "That's not my problem.  Every morning at 6:00 am sharp, I have a good long pee.  At 6:30 am sharp I have a great bowel movement.   The best thing that could happen to me would be if I could wake up before 7:00 am."

Can't Wait

This guy loved living on Staten Island, but he wasn't crazy about the ferry. If you missed a ferry late at night, you had to spend the next hour or so wandering the deserted streets of lower Manhattan.

So, when he spotted a ferry no more than fifteen feet from the dock, he decided he wouldn't subject himself to an hour's wait. He made a running leap and landed on his hands and knees, a little bruised maybe, but safe on deck.

He got up, brushed himself off, and announced proudly to a bystander, "Well, I made that one, didn't I?"

"Sure did," the deckhand said.  "But you should have waited a minute or two. The ferry is just about to dock."

Bride and Groom

The preacher at the wedding was an ardent fisherman and forgetful.  He asked the groom, "Do you promise to love, honor, and cherish this woman?"
"I do," said the groom meekly.  "
Okay," said the minister, turning to the bride, "reel him in."

The Rabbi and the Husband

A man goes to see the Rabbi.
"Rabbi, something terrible is happening and I have to talk to you about it."
The Rabbi asked, "What's wrong?"
The man replied, "My wife is poisoning me."
The Rabbi, very surprised by this, asks, "How can that be?"
The man then pleads, "I'm telling you, I'm certain she's poisoning me, what should I do?"
The Rabbi then offers, "Tell you what.  Let me talk to her, I'll see what I can find out and I'll let you know."
A week later the Rabbi calls the man and says, "Well, I spoke to your wife.  In fact, she talked to me on the phone for over THREE HOURS!  You want my advice?"
The man anxiously says, "Yes."
"Take the poison," says the Rabbi.

Letters Sent to Landlords

"The toilet is blocked and we cannot bathe the children until it is cleared."

Light Bulbs + PMS

Q: How many women with PMS does it take to change a light bulb?
A: One. Only ONE!! And do you know WHY it only takes ONE? Because no one else in this house knows HOW to change a light bulb. They don't even know the bulb is BURNED OUT. They would sit in this house in the dark for THREE DAYS before they figured it OUT. And once they figured it out they wouldn't be able to find the light bulbs despite the fact that they've been in the SAME CUPBOARD for the past SEVENTEEN YEARS. But if they did, by some miracle, actually find the

Mrs. Clinton

It was Bill Clinton's first election and he was sitting at his campaign headquarters when the phone rang. He listened intently, and after a moment his face brightened.
When he hung up, he immediately phoned his mother to tell her the good news.
"Ma," he shouted, "the results are in. I won the election!"
Bill's smiled faded. "Aw hell, Ma, why bring that up at a time like this?"

Talking Clock

While proudly showing off his new apartment to friends, a college student led the way into the den.
"What is the big brass gong and hammer for?" one of his friends asked.
"That is the talking clock", the man replied.
"How's it work?" the friend asked.
"Watch", the man said then proceeded to give the gong an ear shattering pound with the hammer. Suddenly someone screamed from the other side of the wall:
"KNOCK IT OFF, YOU IDIOT! It's two o'clock in the morning!"

Getting Pulled Over

A highway patrolman pulled alongside a speeding car on the freeway. Glancing at the car, he was astounded to see that the lady behind   the wheel was knitting!
The trooper cranked down his window and yelled, "PULL OVER!"
"No," the lady yelled back, "It's a scarf!"

License Renewal

When I went to get my driver's license renewed, our local motor-vehicle bureau was packed. The line inched along for almost an hour until the man ahead of me finally got his license.
He inspected his photo for a moment and commented to the clerk, "I was standing in line so long, I ended up looking pretty grouchy in this picture."
The woman beside him peered over his shoulder, then reassured him, "It's okay. That's how you're going to look when the cops pull you over anyway."

Life Is Good

Sam and a beautiful woman walk into a very posh Beverly Hills furrier. "Show the lady your finest mink!" the fellow exclaims.
So the owner of the shop goes in back and comes out with an absolutely gorgeous full-length coat. As the lady tries it on, the furrier discreetly whispers to the man, "Ah, sir, that particular fur goes for $65,000."
"No problem! I'll write you a check!"
"Very good, sir." says the shop owner. "Today is Saturday. You may come by on Monday to pick it up, after your check has cleared."
So Sam and the woman leave. On Monday, Sam returns. The store owner is outraged: "How dare you show your face in here?! There wasn't a single penny in your checking account!!"
"I just had to come by," grinned Sam, "to thank you for the most wonderful weekend of my life!"

The Jungle Bungle

In 1873, a team of German explorers and their three dogs decided to penetrate the heart of the South American jungle.  After twelve years, they had set up a fort in an Incan town, the centerpiece of which was a large idol with a huge ruby for an eye.
The German church had sent out their best man, Friar Wilhelm Werks three times to check on the progress of the fort, and each time the appearance of the idol had sent him into fits of screaming, complete with shouts, curses, and rending of garments.  Each time, he screamed so loud that he sent the dogs running for cover.  And each time, he left with a warning that the next time he visited, the idol had better be torn down.
The commander of the fort, Hans Brickner, received a message that Friar Werks would be coming to visit again in a fortnight.  He quickly called a meeting with his top commanders.  All five agreed that the Friar would explode when he saw the idol still standing.
"But," said Commander Brickner, "there's nothing to be done.  If we take down the idol, we will anger the local tribe, and without their cooperation we're dead."
His second-in-command, Herr Kommandant Wagner said, "In that case, we'd better make sure we put the dogs away."
"You know how scared the dogs get when Friar Werks goes off on the Fort of Jewel Eye."

"Now, Mrs. Johnson, how long will Fred be in jail?" asked the Mayor.
Mrs. Johnson replied, "Thirty days."
"And what's the charge?"
"No charge," Mrs. Johnson answered, "Everything's free!"
The Mayor said, "No,no,no, I mean, why did he get sent to jail?"
"Oh, he stole a loaf of bread."
"Well, is he a decent father to Fred Jr.?"
"He's the worst.  He drinks, he gambles my paycheck away, and he uses his fists."
"He uses his fists a lot?"
"Yes.  Fred was fourteen before he realized he had fingers!"
The Mayor was confused.  "Why do you want him back?"

Mrs. Johnson replied, "We're out of bread again!"

Diet Rules for Cheaters

1. If you eat something and no one sees you eat it, it has no calories. 

2. If you drink a diet soda with a candy bar, the calories in the candy bar are canceled out by the diet soda. 

3. When you eat with someone else, calories don't count if you don't eat more than they do. 

4. Food used for medicinal purposes NEVER count, such as hot chocolate, brandy, toast and Sara Lee Cheesecake. 

5. If you fatten up everyone else around you, then you look thinner. 

6. Movie related foods (Milk Duds, Buttered Popcorn, Junior Mints, Red Hots, Tootsie Rolls, etc.) do not have additional calories because they are part of the entertainment package and not part of one's personal fuel. 

7. Cookie pieces contain no fat--the process of breaking causes fat leakage.

8. Things licked off knives and spoons have no calories if you are in the process of preparing something. Examples are peanut butter on a knife making a sandwich and ice cream on a spoon making a sundae. 

9. Foods that have the same color have the same number of calories. Examples are: spinach and pistachio ice cream; mushrooms and white chocolate.  NOTE: Chocolate is a universal color and may be substituted for any other food color. 

10. Foods that are frozen have no calories because calories are units of heat. Examples are ice cream, frozen pies, and Popsicles.

Goin' Fishin'

A drunk decides to go ice fishing, so he gathers his gear and goes walking around until he finds a big patch of ice. He heads into the center of the ice and begins to saw a hole.
All of sudden, a loud booming voice comes out of the sky. "You will find no fish under that ice."
The drunk looks around, but sees no one. He starts sawing again. Once more, the voice speaks, "As I said before, there are no fish under the ice."
The drunk looks all around, high and low, but can't see a single soul. He picks up the saw and tries one more time to finish. Before he can even start cutting, the huge voice interrupts. "I have warned you three times now. There are no fish!"
The drunk is now flustered and somewhat scared, so he asks the voice, "How do you know there are no fish? Are you God trying to warn me?"
"No", the voice replied. "I am the manager of this skating rink!

A Place To Sleep

By the time John pulled into the little town, every hotel room was taken. "You've got to have a room somewhere." he pleaded. "Or just a bed--I don't care where."
"Well, I do have a double room with one occupant," admitted the manager, "and he might be glad to split the cost. But to tell you the truth, he snores so loudly that people in adjoining rooms have complained in the past. I'm not sure it'd be worth it to you."
"No problem," the tired traveller assured him. "I'll take it."
The next morning, John came down to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. When asked about how he slept, he replied, "Never better."
The manager was impressed. "No problem with the other guy snoring, then?"
"Nope. I shut him up in no time."
"How'd you manage that?"
"He was already in bed, snoring away, when I came in the room," John said. "I went over, gave him a kiss on the cheek, said, 'Goodnight, beautiful.' With that he sat up all night watching me."

The Train

A large two engine train was crossing America. After they had gone some distance one of the engines broke down.

"No problem," the engineer thought, and carried on at half-power. Further on down the line, the other engine broke down, and the train came to a standstill. The engineer decided he should inform the passengers about why the trainhad stopped, and made the following announcement:

"Ladies and gentlemen, I have some good news and some bad news. The badnews is that both engines have failed, and we will be stuck here for some time. The good news is that this is a train and not a plane."

Embarrassing Moments

This is dedicated to everyone who has ever been embarrassed by a child's words or action.  My three year old son had a lot of problems with potty training; and I was on him constantly. One
day we stopped at Taco Bell for a quick lunch in between errands. It was very busy, with a full dining room. While enjoying my taco, I smelled something funny, so of course I checked my seven month old daughter, and she was clean. Then I realized that Matt had not asked to go potty in a while, so I asked, and he said "No".
I kept thinking, "Oh Lord, that child has had an accident and I don't have any clothes with me. "Then I said, "Matt, are you sure you did not have an accident?"
"No," he replied. I just knew that he must have had, because the smell was getting worse. So...........I asked one more time, "Matt, did you have an accident?" This time he jumped up, yanked down his pants, bent over and spread his cheeks and yelled.... "See MOM, IT'S JUST FARTS!!'  While 100 people nearly choked to death on their tacos, he calmly pulled up his pants and sat down to eat his food as if nothing happened.  

I was mortified......but some kind elderly people made me feel a lot better, when they came over and thanked me for the best laugh they had ever had!!!

Why The Star Wars Characters Would Kick Butt
In The Star Trek Universe.

1. In the Star Wars Universe weapons are rarely, if ever, set on "stun".

2. The Enterprise needs a huge engine room with an anti-matter unit and a crew of 20 just to go into warp --- The Millennium Falcon does the same thing with R2-D2 and a Wookie.

3. After resisting the Imperial torture droid and Darth Vader, Princess Leia still looked fresh and desirable --- After pithy Cardassian starvation torture, Picard looked like hell.

4. One word: Lightsabers.

5. Darth Vader could choke the entire Borg empire with one glance.

6. The Death Star doesn't care if a world is class "M" or not.

7. Luke Skywalker is not obsessed with sleeping with every alien he encounters.

8. Jabba the Hutt would eat Harry Mudd for trying to cut in on his action.

9. The Federation would have to attempt to liberate any ship named "Slave I".

10. Picard pilots the Enterprise through asteroid belts at one-quarter impulse power --- Han Solo floors it.
