Mitch, a hard-shell Southern Baptist, loved to sneak away to the race track. One day he was there betting on the ponies and nearly 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.See the rest of "Catholic Horses"

Teach Your Children Well
Dedicated to all who ever taught children.
Did you hear about the teacher who was helping one of her kindergarten students put on his boots? He asked for help and she could see why. With her pulling and him pushing, the boots still didn't want to go on. When the second boot was on, she had worked up a sweat.
She almost whimpered when the little boy said, "Teacher, they're on the wrong feet."See the rest of "Teach Your Children Well"

Lines from Star Wars that could be improved If the word "pants" was substituted.

The wife asks her husband to stop the car. There was a baby skunk lying at the side of the road, and she got out to see if it was still alive. It was, and she said to her husband, "It's nearly frozen to death. Can we take it with us, get it warm, and let it go in the morning?"See the rest of "Baby Skunk"

Shoot the Bull
An Indian walks into a cafe with a shotgun in one hand pulling a male buffalo with the other.
He says to the waiter: "Want coffee."
The waiter says, "Sure, Chief. Coming right up."
He gets the Indian a tall mug of coffee. The Indian drinks the coffee down in one gulp, turns and blasts the buffalo with the shotgun, causing parts of the animal to splatter everywhere and then just walks out.See the rest of "Shoot the Bull"

Cell phone distractions [photos]
One of our pet peeves is the almost constant use of cell phones by people while driving, shopping , dining , in line at the store etc. Doesn't anyone know how to say "I'll call you right back"?
Well, it has gone beyond that now, with them being used publicly in relaxing getaway places like at the beach. This is beyond being inconsiderate.
While on the beach recently, I had to just sit there and listen to this woman for at least an hour while she talked on her cell phone and pranced back forth in front of me. I couldn't even begin to concentrate on my book at all.
How thoughtless and inconsiderate could she be?See the rest of "Cell phone distractions [photos]"

Printer Problems [photo]
Last week I was with one of my summer interns in the lobby when a receptionist complained that her printer wasn't working.
The intern discovered a pen stuck inside the printer. He started to jam his fingers down into the printer to get the pen, but I told him we didn't have time for that now, just put a note on the printer telling folks not to use it and then report it to the Help Desk.
So he grabs a piece of paper and starts scrawling on it. I left before he finished the note.
About 20 minutes later, one of my techs comes in and says he was just in the lobby, saw a piece of paper on a printer and went to investigate....See the rest of "Printer Problems [photo]"

The Middle East Standoff
Two Arabs boarded a shuttle out of Washington for New York. One sat in the window seat, the other in the middle seat. Just before takeoff a fat, little Israeli guy got on and took the aisle seat next to the Arabs. He kicked off his shoes, wiggled his toes and was settling in when the Arab in the window seat said, "I think I'll go up and get a coke."
"No problem," said the Israeli. "I'll get it for you."See the rest of "The Middle East Standoff"

A minister, a priest and a rabbi
A minister, a priest and a rabbi went for a hike one day. It was very hot. They were sweating and exhausted when they came upon a small lake. Since it was fairly secluded, they took off all their clothes and jumped in the water. Feeling refreshed, the trio decided to pick a few berries while enjoying their "freedom."See the rest of "A minister, a priest and a rabbi"

Out of The Mouths of Babes
I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my five-year-old shout from the back seat, "Mom! That lady isn't wearing a seat belt!"See the rest of "Out of The Mouths of Babes"

A: Your heart is only good for so many beats, and that's it.. Don't waste them on exercise . Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.

Here's a truly heartwarming story about the bond formed between a little 5-year-old girl and some construction workers that makes you believe that we can make a difference when we give a child the gift of our time.
A young family moved into a house next door to a vacant lot. One day a construction crew turned up to start building a house on the empty lot. The young family's 5-year-old daughter naturally took an interest in all the activity going on next door and spent much of each day observing the workers.See the rest of "Young Help"
