Einstein, Picasso, and Bush At The Pearly Gates


George W. Bush, Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso have all died. Due to a glitch in the mundane/celestial time-space continuum, all three arrive at the Pearly Gates more or less simultaneously, even though their deaths have taken place decades apart.

A Girl's First Time


(Assume you are a girl, if you're not.)

It's your first time. As you lie back your muscles tighten. You put him off for a while searching for an excuse, but he refuses to be swayed as he approaches you. He asks if you're afraid and you shake your head bravely.

Nag, nag, nag


There was an attorney who got home late one evening after a very taxing day trying to get a stay of execution for a client, named Wilbur Wright, who was due to be hanged for murder at midnight. His last-minute plea for clemency to the state governor had failed and he was feeling tired and depressed.

As soon as he got through the door his wife started on about,"What time of night do you call this? Where the hell have you been?" and so on.

Breaking Election News!


[This dates back to December 2000, after the presidential election.]


Bush to be smitten later today

In a stunning development this morning, God invoked the "one nation, under God" clause of the Pledge of Allegiance to overrule last night's Supreme Court decision that handed the White House to George Bush. "I'm not sure where the Supreme Court gets off," God said this morning on a rare Today Show appearance, "but I'm sure as hell not going to lie back and let Bush get away with this bullshit."

Blonde Dedication


There was this Midwestern phone company that was going to hire one team of telephone pole installers and the boss ad to choose between a team of blondes and a team of brown-haired guys. So the boss said to both teams: “Here’s what we’ll do. Each team will be installing poles out on the new road. The team that installs the most poles gets the job.”

Both teams headed right out.

Perhaps The Best Blonde Joke


A blonde went into a world wide message center to send a message to her mother overseas. When the man told her it would cost $300, she exclaimed: "But I don't have any money. But I'd do ANYTHING to get a message to my mother."

The man arched an eyebrow (as we would expect). "Anything?" he asked.

"Yes, yes, anything," the blonde promised.

The Pharmacist


A lady walks into a drug store and tells the pharmacist she needs some cyanide.

The pharmacist said, "Why in the world do you need cyanide?"

The lady then explained she needed it to poison her husband. The pharmacist's eyes got big and he said, "Lord have mercy, I can't give you cyanide to kill your husband! That's against the law! I'll lose my license, they'll throw both of us in jail and all kinds of bad things will happen! Absolutely not, you can NOT have any cyanide!"

Hung by the chimney with...


['twas the month before Christmas, 2000 when this one arrived.]

As a joke, my brother used to hang a pair of panty hose over his fireplace before Christmas. He said all he wanted was for Santa to fill them. What they say about Santa checking the list twice must be true because every Christmas morning, although Jay's kids' stockings were overflowed, his poor panty hose hung sadly empty and grew increasingly threadbare.

One year I decided to make his dream come true. I put on sunglasses and a fake beard and went in search of an inflatable love doll.

Darwin Awards 2000


[It seems like there's always a set of "Darwin Awards" making the rounds. This version is from my December 2000 archives.]

Some of these make you wince, but they are funny!

1. A young Canadian man, searching for a way of getting drunk cheaply, because he had no money with which to buy alcohol, mixed gasoline with milk. Not surprisingly, this concoction made him ill, and he vomited into the fireplace in his house. This resulting explosion and fire burned his house down, killing both him and his sister.

Little Leroy


Little Leroy went to his mother demanding a new bicycle. His mother decided he should take a look at himself and the way he acts.

She said, "Well Leroy, it isn't Christmas and we don't have the money to just go out and buy you anything you want. So why don't you write a letter to Jesus and pray for one instead."

After his temper tantrum his mother sent him to his room. He finally sat down to write a letter to Jesus.

Super Granny: Defender of Justice


[This came in in December of 2000, labeled as a "True Story". 90% of all "true stories" forwarded in email aren't true at all, but true or not, it's funny...]

An elderly lady did her shopping and, upon returning to her car, found four males in the act of leaving with her vehicle. She dropped her shopping bags and drew her handgun, proceeding to scream at them at the top of her voice, "I have a gun and I know how to use it! Get out of the car you scum bags!"

The Elementary School version of the Bible


Pay special attention to the wording and spelling. If you know the Bible, even a little, you'll find this hilarious! (If you don't, you sure ain't going to learn it here.) It comes from a Catholic Elementary school test. Kids were asked questions about the old and new testaments.

The following statements about the Bible were written by children. They have not been retouched nor corrected. (i.e., incorrect spelling has been left in!)

1. In the first book of the bible, Guinessis, God got tired of creating the world so he took the sabbath off.

Horse's Posterior


[This is from my 2000 files, but I'm sure that there are versions floating around with the names changed to more current politicians of choice...]

A man walked into a cowboy bar and ordered a beer just as Al Gore came on the TV. After a few sips he looked up at the screen and mumbled, "Now there's the biggest horse's ass I've ever seen."

Immediately, a customer at the end of the bar got up, walked over, decked him, and left.

Emergency Medical


A dad walks into a market followed by his ten-year-old son. The kid is spinning a 25 cent piece in the air and catching it between his teeth. As they walk through the market someone bumps into the boy at just the wrong moment and the coin goes straight into his mouth and lodges in his throat. He immediately starts choking, going blue in the face, and Dad starts panicking, shouting for help.
