Mary had a little lamb.
Her father shot it dead. Now it goes to school with her,
Between two hunks of bread.
Jack and Jill went up the hill
To have a little fun.
And now they have a son.

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
And all the kings' men.

Right in the middle of her forehead.

I am passing this on to you because it definitely worked for me and we all
could use more calm in our lives. By following the simple advice that I
heard on a Medical TV show, I have at last finally found inner peace.
A Doctor proclaimed the way to achieve inner peace is to finish off all the
things you have started but not finished.
So, this morning I looked around the house to identify all unfinished tasks.
In the course of my therapy, I finished off 19 Benson & Hedges, a bottle of
Merlot, a bottle of Shhhardonay, a bodle of Baileys, a butle of vocka, a
pockage of Prunglies, tha mainder of bot Prozic and Valum scriptins, the
rest of the Chesescke an a bax a cholates. Yu haf no idr who gud I fel. Peas

An Australian guy is travelling around the Greek Islands. He walks into a
bar and, by chance, is served by an Australian barmaid. As she takes his
order - aFoster's - she notices his accent. Over the course of the evening
they get chatting. At the end of her shift he asks if she wants to come back
to his place.
Although attracted to him she says no. He then offers to pay her $200 to
sleep with him. As she is travelling around the world, and short of funds,
The next night the guy turns up again. Again orders Fosters and after
showing her plenty of attention, asks if she'll sleep with him again for
$200. Remembering the night before and is only too happy to agree.
This goes on for 5 nights.
On the 6th night the guy comes in again, orders Fosters but goes and sits in
the corner. The barmaid thinks that if she pays him more attention, maybe
she can shake some more Australian dollars out of him. So she goes over and
sits next to him and asks where he's from in Australia.
"Melbourne", he tells her. "So am I. What suburb?" she enquires. "Glen Iris"
he replies. "That's amazing," she says excitedly, "so am I - what street?"
"Cameo Street" he replies. "This is unbelievable........." she says, her
voice quavering; "What number?" "Number 20", he replies.
She is totally astonished. "You are NOT going to believe this," she screams,
"but I'm from number 22! My parents still live there!!"

Monkey Business - Mike West (29th Nov '06)
A fellow walked into a pet
store and was looking at the animals on display.
While he was there, a Chief Petty Officer from the local Naval Air Station
walked in and said to the shopkeeper, "I'd like a line service monkey,
The clerk nodded, went to a cage at the side of the store and took out a
monkey. He put a collar and leash on the animal and handed it to the Chief,
saying, "That'll be £1,000." The Chief paid and left with the monkey.
Surprised, the fellow went to the shopkeeper and said, "That was a very
expensive monkey - most of them are only a few hundred pounds. Why did that
one cost so much?"
The shopkeeper answered, "Ah - that was a line service monkey. He can park,
fuel, and service all Naval aircraft, conduct all required ground ops
testing, rig aircraft flight controls, and all with no mistakes. He's also
trained in all carrier flight deck ops. He's well worth the money."
With increasing interest, the guy looked around and spotted a monkey in
another cage with a £10,000 price tag. "That one's even more expensive! What
can it do?"
"Oh, that one's a "Maintenance Supervisor" monkey. She can instruct at all
levels of aircraft maintenance, supervise all corrective and preventive
maintenance programs, supervise a crew of Maintainers, and even do most of
the paperwork. A very useful
monkey indeed," replied the shopkeeper.
The guy looked around a little longer and found a third monkey in a cage.
The price tag read, "£50,000". Holy shit! What does this one do?"
"Well", the shopkeeper said, "I've never actually seen him do anything but
drink beer, screw the girl monkeys, and play with his pecker. But his
papers say that he's a licenced pilot....."

No kidding, the following was extracted from a Hartlepool newspaper:
I was waiting as customer services in Asda and the woman in front was
returning a disposable barbeque.
When asked why, she replied that when she'd opened it there was no meat in
The shop assistant patiently explained that the barbeque was simply to cook
the meat it didn't include. The customer looked very embarrassed indeed.
Anyway, the assistant looked at her receipt and asked "There are three
barbeques on here, are you returning the other two as well?"
"I can't" said the woman. "They're at home in the freezer".
By all Means... MARRY! - Sorry Ladies
(23rd Oct '06)
I recently read that love is entirely a matter of chemistry. That must be
why my wife treats me like toxic waste.
When a man steals your wife, there is no better revenge than to let him keep
After marriage, husband and wife become two sides of a coin; they just can't
face each other, but still they stay together.
By all means marry. If you get a good wife, you'll be happy. If you get a
bad one, you'll become a philosopher.
Woman inspires us to great things, and prevents us from achieving them.
The great question... which I have not been able to answer... is, "What does
a woman want?
I had some words with my wife, and she had some paragraphs with me.
Some people ask the secret of our long marriage. We take time to go to a
restaurant two times a week. A little candlelight, dinner, soft music and
dancing. She goes Tuesdays, I go Fridays.
I don't worry about terrorism. I was married for two years.
There's a way of transferring funds that is even faster than electronic
banking. It's called marriage.

To commemorate her 69th birthday Julie Andrews made a
special appearance at Manhattan's Radio City Music Hall for the benefit of
One of the musical numbers she performed was "My Favourite Things"
from the legendary movie "Sound Of Music." However, the lyrics of the song
changed for the entertainment of her "blue rinse" audience. Here are the
lyrics she recited:
Maalox and nose drops and needles for knitting,
Walkers and handrails and new dental fittings,
Bundles of magazines tied up with string,
These are a few of my favourite things.
Cadillac's, cataract s, hearing aids and glasses,
Polident, Fixodent and dentures and glasses,
Pacemakers, golf carts and porches with swings,
These are a few of my favourite things.
When the pipes leak,
When the bones creak,
When the knees go bad
I simply remember my favourite things,
And then I don't feel so bad.
Hot tea and crumpets, and corn pads for bunions,
No spicy hot food or food cooked with onions,
Bathrobes and heat pads and hot meals they bring,
These are a few of my favourite things.
Back pains, confused brains, and no fear of sinnin,'
Thin bones and fractures and hair that is thinnin',
And we won't mention our short shrunken frames,
When we remember our favourite things.
When the joints ache,
When the hips break,
When the eyes grow dim,
THEN I REMEMBER THE GREAT LIFE I'VE HAD,
AND THEN I DON'T FEEL SO BAD.

Your Weather - Ann Lovegrove (14th Aug
If you're planning a trip, look outside. If the sky looks like this, forget
the trip and grab a novel!
Noah in 2006 - Anne Lovegrove (2nd
In the year 2006, the Lord came unto Noah, who was now living in the United
States, and said, "Once again, the earth has become wicked and
over-populated, and I see the end of all flesh before me.
Build another Ark and save 2 of every living thing along with a few good
He gave Noah the blueprints, saying, "You have 6 months to build the Ark
before I will start the unending rain for 40 days and 40 nights."
Six months later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah weeping in his yard -
but no Ark.
"Noah!" He roared, "I'm about to start the rain! Where is the Ark?"
"Forgive me, Lord," begged Noah, "but things have changed. I needed a
building permit. I've been arguing with the inspector about the need for a
sprinkler system. My neighbors claim that I've violated the neighborhood
zoning laws by building the Ark in my yard and exceeding the height
limitations. We had to go to the Development Appeal Board for a decision.
Then the Department of Transportation demanded a bond be posted for the
future costs of moving power lines and other overhead obstructions, to clear
the passage for the Ark's move to the sea. I told them that the sea would be
coming to us, but they would hear nothing of it.
Getting the wood was another problem. There's a ban on cutting local trees
in order to save the spotted owl. I tried to convince the environment alists
that I needed the wood to save the owls - but no go!
When I started gathering the animals, an animal rights group sued me.
They insis! ted that I was confining wild animals against their will. They
argued the accommodation was too restrictive, and it was cruel and inhumane
to put so many animals in a confined space.
Then the EPA ruled that I couldn't build the Ark until they'd conducted an
environmental impact study on your proposed flood.
I'm still trying to resolve a complaint with the Human Rights Commission on
how many minorities I'm supposed to hire for my building crew.
Immigration and Naturalization is checking the green-card sta tus of most of
the people who want to work.
The trades unions say I can't use my sons. They insist I have to hire only
Union workers with Ark-building experience.
To make matters worse, the IRS seized all my assets, claiming I'm trying to
leave the country illegally with endangered species.
So, forgive me, Lord, but it would take at least 10 years for me to finish
Suddenly the skies cleared, the sun began to shine, and a rainbow stretched
across the sky. Noah looked up in wonder and asked, "You mean you're not
going to destroy the world?"
"No," said the Lord. "The government beat me to it."

YES SOME ARE REALLY JUST THIS DUMB........ Some guy bought a new fridge for
his house. To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and
hung a sign on it saying: "Free to good home. You want it, you take it." For
three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it.
He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal. It
looked to good to be true, so he changed the sign to read: "Fridge for sale

While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which

Teddy Bears - Brian (19th July '06)
A woman meets a man in a bar. They talk; they connect; they end up
leaving together. They get back to his place, and as he shows her around his
apartment, she notices that one wall of his bedroom is completely filled
with soft, sweet, cuddly teddy bears. There are three shelves in the
bedroom, with hundreds and hundreds of cute, cuddly teddy bears, carefully
placed in rows covering the entire wall! It was obvious that he had taken
quite some time to lovingly arrange them and she was immediately touched by
the amount of thought he had put into organizing the display. There were
small bears all along the bottom shelf, medium-sized bears covering the
length of the middle shelf, and huge, enormous bears running all the way
along the top shelf.
She found it strange for an obviously masculine guy to have such a large a
collection of Teddy Bears, but doesn't mention this to him, and actually is
quite impressed by his sensitive side. They share a bottle of wine and
continue talking and, after a while, she finds herself thinking, "Oh my God!
Maybe, this guy could be the one! Maybe he could be the future father my
children?" She turns to him and kisses him lightly on the lips. He responds
warmly. They continue to kiss, the passion builds, and he romantically lifts
her in his arms and carries her into his bedroom! Where they rip off each
other's clothes and make hot, steamy love.
She is so overwhelmed that she responds with more passion, more creativity,
and more heat than she has ever known. After an intense, explosive night of
raw passion with this sensitive guy, they are lying there together in the
afterglow. The woman rolls over, gently strokes his chest and asks coyly,
"Well, how was it?"
The guy warmly smiles at her, strokes her cheek, looks deeply into her eyes,
and says: "Help yourself to any prize from the middle shelf."

I Love This One
(11th July '06)
A man worked all life, saved all of his money, and was
a real miser when it came to his money.
Just before he died, he said to his wife, "When I die,
I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to
take my wealth to the afterlife with me." And so he got his wife to promise
him, faithfully that when he died, she would put all of the money in the
casket with him.
Well, he died. He was stretched out in the casket, his
wife was sitting there in black, and her friend was sitting next to her.
When they finished the ceremony, just before the
undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said, "Wait a minute!"
She had a box with her; she came over with the box and put it in the casket.
Then the undertakers locked the casket down, and they rolled it away.
Her friend said, "I know you weren't fool enough to put
all that money in there with your husband."
The loyal wife replied "Listen, I'm a Christian; I
can't go back on my word. I promised him that I was going to put that money
in that casket with him, so that's what I did."
"You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket
"I sure did" said the wife. "I got it all together, put it into my account
and wrote him a cheque - if he can cash it, he can spend it."

appears from nowhere and crashes directly onto the spot where the boy is
The water recedes and the boy is no longer there. Swept away.
She raises her hands to the sky as she screams and cries, "Lord, how could
you? Haven't I been a wonderful grandmother? Haven't I been a wonderful
mother? Haven't I kept a kosher home? Haven't I given to B'nai B'rith?
Haven't I given to Hadassah? Haven't I lit candles every Friday night?
Haven't I tried my very best to live a life that you would be proud of?"
A voice booms from the sky, "Okay, okay!"
A few minutes later, another hu ge wave appears out of nowhere and crashes
on the beach. As the water recedes, the boy is standing there, smiling and
splashing around as if nothing had ever happened.
The voice booms again. "I have returned your grandson. Are you satisfied?"
She responds, "He had a hat."
SHARING THE SUNSET YEARS
An elderly couple visits McDonalds. He orders one hamburger, one order of
French fries and one drink. The old man unwraps the plain hamburger and
carefully cuts it in half. He places one half in front of his wife. He then
carefully counts out the French fries, dividing them into two piles and
neatly placing one pile in front of his wife. He takes a sip of the drink,
his wife takes a sip and then sets the cup down between them.
As he begins to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people around them keep
looking over and whispering. You could tell they were thinking, "That poor
old couple - all they can afford is one meal for the two of them." As the
man begins to eat his fries a young man comes to the table. He politely
offers to buy another meal for the old couple. The old man says they are
just fine - they are used to sharing everything. The surrounding people
notice the little old lady hasn't eaten a bite. She sits there watching her
husband eat and occasionally takes turns sipping the drink.
Again the young man comes over and begs them to let him buy another meal for
them. This time the old woman says, "No, thank you, we are used to sharing
everything." As the old man finishes and is wiping his face neatly with the
napkin, the young man again comes over to the little old lady who has yet to
eat a single bite of food and asks, "What is it you are waiting for?"

Foggie (16th June '06)

Q: What's the difference between the England team and a tea-bag? A: The

Q: What is common between a 3-pin plug and the English football team? A:
They are both useless in Europe!
Q: What's the difference between O J Simpson and England? A: OJ Simpson had
a more credible defence
Rumours that David Beckham was seen successfully seducing a young woman in a
Spanish nightclub with a one-liner have been completely refuted by the
English FA. Adam Crozier, chief publicity officer stated: "I find it totally
preposterous to suggest that one of our players could make a successful pass
to or at anyone."

Four surgeons are taking a coffee break. The first one says, "Accountants
are the best to operate on because when you open them up everything inside
them is numbered." The second surgeon says, "Nah, librarians are the best;
everything inside them is in alphabetical order." Third surgeon says, "Try
electricians. Everything inside them is colour-coded." The fourth one says,
"I prefer English football fans. They're heartless, spineless, gutless and
their heads and arses are interchangeable."
Did you hear about the UK politician who was found dead in an English
football jersey? The police had to dress him up in women's underwear in
order to save his family from the embarrassment.
Did you hear that the UK Post Office has had to recall their latest stamps
with pictures of English football players on them. People couldn't figure
out which side to spit on.

necks in sand?

A relative died this past January, and Citibank billed her for January and
February for their annual service charges on her credit card, and then added
late fees and interest on the monthly charge. The balance had been $0.00,
now it was somewhere around $60.00.
I placed a call to Citibank:
Me: "I am calling to tell you that she died in January."
Citibank: "The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still
Me: "Maybe, you should turn it over to collections."
Citibank: "Since it is 2 months past due, it already has been."
Me: “So, what will they do when they find out she is dead?"
Citibank: "Either report her account to the frauds ! division or report her
to the credit bureau, maybe both!"
Me: "Do you think God will be mad at her?"
Citibank: "Excuse me?"

What Makes 100%? What does it mean to give MORE than
100%? Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%?
We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over
100%. How about achieving 103%? What makes up 100% in life?
Here's a little mathematical formula that might help
you answer these questions:
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z is

H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%
And K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%
A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

A man and a woman were sitting beside each other in the
first class section of an airplane. The woman sneezed, took out a tissue,
gently wiped her nose, then visibly shuddered for ten to fifteen seconds.
The man went back to his reading.
A few minutes later, the woman sneezed again, took a
tissue, wiped her nose, then shuddered violently once more. Assuming that
the woman might have a cold, the man was still curious about the shuddering.
A few more minutes passed when the woman sneezed yet again. As before she
took a tissue, wiped her nose, her body shaking ever more than before.
Unable to restrain his curiosity, the man turned to the
woman and said, "I couldn't help but notice that you've sneezed three times,
wiped your nose and then shuddered violently. Are you okay?"
"I am sorry if I disturbed you, I have a very rare
medical condition; whenever I sneeze I have an orgasm."
The man, more than a bit embarrassed, was still
curious. "I have never heard of that condition before" he said. "Are you
taking anything for it?"
The woman nodded and said, "Pepper!"

A nice, calm and respectable lady went into
the pharmacy, right up to the pharmacist, looked straight into
his eyes, and said; "I would like to buy some cyanide."
The pharmacist asked, "Why in the world do
you need cyanide?"
The lady replied, "I need it to poison my husband."
The pharmacist eyes got big and he exclaimed, "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! All kinds of bad things will happen. Absolutely not! You
CANNOT have any cyanide.”

Where did pets come from?
A newly discovered chapter in the Book of Genesis has
provided the answer to "Where did pets come from?"
Adam and Eve said, "Lord, when we were in the garden,
you walked with us every day. Now we do not see you any more. We are
lonesome here, and it is difficult for us to remember how much you love us."
And God said, “I will create a companion for you that
will be with you and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that
you will love me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or
childish or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you
are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourselves."
And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam
And it was a good animal.
And God was pleased.
And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and Eve
and he wagged his tail.
And Adam said, "Lord, I have already named all the
animals in the Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal."
And God said, “I have created this new animal to be a
reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name,
and you will call him DOG."
And Dog lived with Adam and Eve and was a companion to
them and loved them.
And they were comforted.
And God was pleased.
And Dog was content and wagged his tail.
After a while, it came to pass that an angel came to
the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam and Eve have become filled with pride. They
strut and preen like peacocks and they believe they are worthy of adoration.
Dog has indeed taught them that they are loved, but perhaps too well."
And God said, “I will create for them a companion who
will be with them and who will see them as they are. The companion will
remind them of their limitations, so they will know that they are not always
worthy of adoration."
And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam and Eve.

The manager of Liverpool FC sends scouts out round the World looking for a
new striker to hopefully win Liverpool the title. One of his scouts informs
him of a young Iraqi striker who he thinks will turn out to be a true
superstar. So the manager flies to Iraq to watch him and is suitably
impressed and arranges for him to come over to Anfield. Two weeks later
Liverpool are 4-0 down at home with only twenty minutes left, and
Liverpool's manager gives the young Iraqi striker the nod to go on. The lad
is a sensation, scores five goals in twenty minutes and wins the game for
Liverpool. The fans are delighted, the players and coaches are delighted and
the media love the new star. When he comes off the pitch he phones his Mum
to tell her about his first day in English football. "Hi Mum, guess what?"
he says. "I played for twenty minutes today, we were 4-0 down but I scored
five and we won. Everybody loves me, the fans, the players and the media,
they all love me." "Great," says his Mum, "now let me tell you about my day.
Your father got shot in the street, your sister and I were raped and beaten
and your brother has joined a gang of looters, while you were having a great
time." The young lad is very upset. "What can I say Mum, but I'm so sorry".
"Sorry?!?" says his Mum. "It's your f#$^&%ng fault that we moved to

For you entertainment and edification here are a couple of his latest:
Miss Beatrice, the
church organist, was in her eighties and had never been married. She was
admired for her sweetness and kindness to all.
One afternoon the pastor
came to call on her and she showed him into her quaint sitting room. She
invited him to have a seat while she prepared tea.
As he sat facing her old
Hammond organ, the young minister noticed a cut-glass bowl sitting on top of
it. The bowl was filled with water, and in
the water floated, of
all things, a condom!
When she returned with
tea and scones, they began to chat.
The pastor tried to
stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and its strange floater, but
soon it got the better of him and He could no longer resist.
"Miss Beatrice", he
said, "I wonder if you would tell me about this?" pointing to the bowl.
"Oh, yes," she replied,
"Isn't it wonderful? I was walking through the Park a few months ago and I
found this little package on the ground. The directions said to place it on
the organ, keep it wet and that it would prevent the spread of disease. Do
you know I haven't had the flu all winter."

TOO EMBARRASSED - Foggie (23rd Sept '05)
could not resist this one - G
Billy was at school
this morning in the outback and the teacher asked all the children what
there fathers did for a living.
All the typical
answers came out, Fireman, Policeman, Salesman, Chippy, Captain of Industry
etc, but Billy was being uncharacteristically quiet and so the teacher asked
him about his father.
"My father is an
exotic dancer in a gay club and takes off all his clothes in front of other
men. Sometimes if the offer is really good, he'll go out with a man, rent a
cheap hotel room and let them sleep with him."
The teacher quickly
set the other children some work and took little Billy aside to ask him if
that was really true.
"No" said Billy, "He
plays cricket for Australia, but I was just too embarrassed to say."
Sad News Indeed (15th Sept '06)
It is with the saddest heart that I must pass on the
following news: Please join me in remembering a great icon of the
entertainment community. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast
infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was
71. Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities
turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack,
the California raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain
Crunch. The grave site was piled high with flours. Aunt Jemima delivered the
eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he
was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was
filled with turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting
much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at
times he was still a crusty old man and was considered a roll model for
millions. Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, two children, John
Dough and Jane Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by
his elderly dad, Pop Tart. The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20
minutes. If this made you smile for even a brief second, please take time to
pass it on and share that smile with someone else that kneads it.

President Bush was visiting a

They were in the middle of a

So the illustrious leader asked the
class for an example of a "tragedy".
One little boy stood up and offered:
"If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and A
tractor runs over him and kills him, that would be a tragedy".
" No," said Bush, "that would be an
A little girl raised her hand: "If a
school bus carrying 50 children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside,
that would be a tragedy."
"I'm afraid not," explained the
president. "That's what we would call great loss."
The room went silent. No other
children volunteered. Bush searched the room.
"Isn't there someone here who can
give me an example of a tragedy?"
Finally at the back of the room a
small boy raised his hand.
In a quiet voice he said: "If Air
Force One carrying you and Mrs. Bush was struck by a friendly fire" missile
and blown to smithereens, that would be a tragedy."
"Fantastic!" exclaimed Bush. "That's
right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?"
Well," said the boy, "It has to be a

wouldn't be a f %&*&% accident either."

recognize that, Hanukkah is an important holiday that often coincides with
Christmas (though unfortunately not this year).
However, from now on we're calling it our "Holiday Party."
The same policy applies to employees who are celebrating Kwanzaa at this
time. There will be no Christmas tree and no Christmas carols sung. Happy
Holidays to you and your family.

Regarding the anonymous note I received from a member of Alcoholics
Anonymous requesting a non-drinking table, I'm happy to accommodate this
request, but, don't forget, if I put a sign on the table that reads, "AA
Only," you won't be anonymous anymore.
In addition, forget about the gifts exchange-no gifts will be allowed since
the union members feel that $10 is too much money.

December 7th TO: ALL EMPLOYEES
I've arranged for members of Overeaters Anonymous to sit farthest from the
dessert buffet and pregnant women closest to the restrooms.
Gays are allowed to sit with each other. Lesbians do not have to sit with
the gay men; each will have their table. Yes, there will be a flower
arrangement for the gay men's table. Happy now?

People! People! Nothing sinister was intended by wanting our CEO to play
Santa Claus! Even if the anagram of Santa" does happen to be "Satan," there
is no evil connotation to our own "little man in a red suit."

December 10th TO: ALL EMPLOYEES
Vegetarians! I've had it with you people!! We're going to hold this party at
Luigi's Open Pit whether you like it or not, you can just sit at the table
farthest from the "grill of death," as you put it, and you'll get salad bar
only, including hydroponic tomatoes. But, you know, tomatoes have feelings,
too. They scream when you slice them. I've heard them scream. I'm hearing
them right now...Ha!
I hope you all have a rotten holiday! Drive drunk and die, you hear me?

I'm sure I speak for all of us in wishing Patty Lewis a speedy recovery from
her stress-related illness.
I'll continue to forward your cards to her at the sanitarium. In the
meantime, management has decided to cancel our Holiday Party and give
everyone the afternoon of the 23rd off with full pay.

Xmas Angel -
One particular Christmas season a long time ago, Santa was getting ready for
his annual trip, but there were problems.............problems everywhere.
Four of his elves got sick and the trainee elves did not produce the toys as
fast as the regular ones, so Santa was beginning to feel the pressure of
being behind schedule. Then Mrs. Claus told Santa that her mother was
coming to visit.
This stressed Santa even more. When he went to harness the reindeer, he
found that three of them were about to give birth and two had jumped the
fence and were out, heaven knows where. More stress.
Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the boards cracked and the toy
bag fell to the ground and scattered the toys. So, frustrated, Santa went
into the house for a cup of coffee and a shot of whisky.
When he went to the cupboard, he discovered that the elves had hidden the
liquor and there was nothing to drink. In his frustration, he accidentally
dropped the coffee pot and it broke into hundreds of little pieces all over
the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found that mice had eaten
the straw it was made from.
Just then the doorbell rang and Santa cursed on his way to the door. He
opened the door and there was a little angel with a great big Christmas
The angel said, very cheerfully, “Merry Christmas Santa. Isn’t it such a
lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Isn’t it such a lovely tree?
Where would you like me to stick it?’
Thus began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree!
Kids comments on the sea - Foggie
(8th Dec '04)
Some school kids were asked to draw pictures relating to the sea and >also
give their personal comments....
Kelly age 6. This is a picture of an
octopus. It has eight testicles.
James age 6. Oysters balls are called pearls.
Peter age 6. I don't like the sea. It makes me sick on the ferry.
Wayne age 7. If you are surrounded by sea you are an island. If you don't
have sea all round you, you are in continent.
Kylie age 6. I think sharks are ugly and mean, and have big teeth, just like
Emily Richardson. She's not my friend no more.
Billy age 8. A dolphin breathes through an arsehole on the top of its head.
Millie age 6. My uncle goes out in his boat with pots, and comes back with
William age 7. When ships had sails, they used to use the trade winds to
cross the ocean. Sometimes, when the wind didn't blow, the sailors would
whistle to make the wind come. My brother said they would be better off
Helen age 6. I like mermaids. They are beautiful, and I like their shiny
tails. How do mermaids get pregnant?
Amy age 6. I'm not going to write about the sea. My baby brother is always
screaming and being sick, my Dad keeps shouting at my Mum, and my big sister
has just got pregnant, so I can't think what to write.
Christopher age 7. Some fish are
dangerous. Jelly fish can sting. Electric eels can give you a shock. They
have to live in caves under the sea where I think they have to plug
themselves into chargers.
Laura age 5. My mum has fish nets, but doesn't catch any fish.
Kevin age 6. When you go swimming in the sea, it is very cold, and it makes
my willy small.
Emma age 5. A submarine goes under the water like a fish, but it has lots of
Valerie age 6. When I grow up, I want to be captain of a big ship, and have
lots of sailors.
Julie age 7. On holiday my Mum went water skiing. She fell off when she was
going very fast. She says she won't do it again because water shot up her
Terry Duggan (18th Nov '04)
any airline you like, I guess!
The following letter is from the XXX (Airlines) Flight Operations
Newsletter. The letter is from a Captain answering his Chief Pilot's
"Request for further information."
In your icy, indeed hostile, telephone call of yesterday, you requested a
report about the alleged proceedings involving my crew at the XXX's 75th
Birthday celebration at the slip port. As the reports from the local
authorities and the head of the Australian legation were undoubtedly a
complete fabrication, I take the opportunity to put the truth of the matter
XXX's management's kind offer to "buy a round of drinks" was taken on board
by the crew who decided to upgrade the event to its correct status, so
appropriate quantities of libation and food were purchased, with festivities
being held in my hotel suite. An enjoyable evening ensued but insufficient
supplies had been obtained, so several members of the crew left for further
purchases at a local bar.
In a truly magnanimous gesture, ten bar girls from that establishment helped
carry the beer back to the hotel. To demonstrate our appreciation of their
assistance, we served them some cool drink. They then offered to show us
some local culture, and, in order not to offend, we allowed them to dance
some exotic dances.
The banging on the walls of my room had, by now, quite honestly, become
invasive, and it was disturbing the dancers, so we arranged an amusing
little deterrent. S/0 Brown's impersonation of the Police Officer was
excellent! In full Qantas uniform, with an aluminum rubbish bin upside down
on his head, he goose-stepped to each room and harangued the occupants with
a very witty diatribe about disturbing hotel guests. I personally heard
nothing of his alleged threats of life in Alcatraz or the Gulags, claimed by
the sister of the Minister of Police whose room was, unluckily, next door.
I have no doubt that this woman was the sneak who called security and hotel
management and I absolutely refute that the shout "Look out, here come the
Indians! Circle the wagons!" was made. The simple coincidence of security
arriving just as we stood the double bed on its side across the door to make
the dance floor bigger is obvious. The major damage to the room occurred
when a group of gate crashers, whom we could not know were hotel security,
forced their way in just as most of us happened to be leaning against the
bed watching the dancing.
The subsequent events in the foyer of the hotel are an equally vicious
distortion of the facts. I was explaining the importance of the 75th
Birthday to the General Manager of the hotel and noting that other guests
were fabricating stories of noise, drinking and singing at the celebration,
when F/O Smith (ex-SAS) and several other keep-fit enthusiasts, in keeping
with their almost monastic pursuit of health, organised the race up the
drapes which hang along the foyer wall. It says nothing for the workmanship
of some of these nations that the fittings were torn from the wall before
most of the crew were even halfway up. At this stage, in an amazing display
of international posturing, the Governor of the city, who was attending the
National Day cocktail party in the foyer, cast some denigrating remarks
about Australian culture.
Although he misunderstood our gestures of greeting, female flight attendant
Williams rescued the situation with her depth of knowledge of local culture.
Her rendition of the Fertility Dancing Maiden in the foyer's 'Pool of
Remembrance' was nothing short of breathtaking. Normally this dance is
performed wearing just a sarong skirt so FFA Williams' extra step to nature
was a bold step forward. Unfortunately, during one intricate step, FFA
Williams slipped and fell beneath the fountain, so we were lucky that S/0
Brown, who had the great presence of mind to strip to avoid getting his
uniform wet, leapt in to help.
That the tiles of the pool were slippery is beyond dispute, as it took
nearly ten minutes of threshing about before S/O Brown could actually
complete his rescue. Such concern was there for these two exemplary crew
member's safety, that the rest of the crew were forced to assist, and I deny
that this massed altruistic rescue attempt could be construed as a 'Water
Polo' game! This slanderous accusation was first put to me by the Chief of
the Riot Squad, whose storm troopers had apparently been called by some over
zealous Fascists at the cocktail party.
Order had nearly been restored when the fire started. I prefer F/O Smith's
version of events that the drapes had caught fire from being against a light
fitting, and that he dropped his cigarette lighter whilst trying to escape
the flames. Had host management fulfilled their responsibilities and used
fire retardant material instead of velvet, the fire would not have spread to
the rest of the hotel. The responsible attitude shown by my crew in
assisting the bar staff to carry out drinks from the cocktail party is to be
commended, not condemned, and the attempt by male members of the crew to
extinguish pockets of fire using natural means has been totally
misrepresented in some quarters. I cannot overstate how strongly I resent
the assertions made in the Chief Fire Officer's report.
I made an official protest about these matters when the head of the
Australian Legation visited us at the Police Station the next morning.
However, not only did Ambassador Jones not attempt to refute the
preposterous allegations made against me and my crew, but also by failing to
secure our release immediately, caused the subsequent aircraft delay. I did
not know Her Majesty was to be aboard our aircraft, but I am sure that her
12-hour visit to that country was appreciated by local dignitaries and
probably HRH herself. (I must mention that the local manager is far too
obsequious - Smarmy! Smarmy! You should have seen him bowing and scraping.
Never make a Prime Minister, that chap!)
Finally, I note that not since 'Rainman' has XXX been mentioned in so many
newspapers. (Some people in XXX would die for coverage like that.) The main
newspaper at the slip port incidentally mentioned XXX 75 times on its front
page alone, although some of the coupled epithets can only be described as
the worst journalistic excesses of the gutter press.
I trust that now I have outlined the correct version of events, we may allow
ourselves a discreet smile as to the lack of social sophistication of some
of these developing nations and put all this behind us. As far as I am
concerned, the crew carried on the finest XXX traditions.
P.S. I checked amongst the language qualified members of the crew, but no
one was up to speed on Latin. Can you recommend anyone in the International
Department who could translate 'Persona Non Grata'?

Adam Takach (18th Nov '04)
boy about 12 years old walked down the street dragging a flattened
frog on a string behind him. He came up to the doorstep of a house of ill
repute and knocked on the door. When the Madam answered it, she saw the
little boy and asked what he wanted. He said, "I want to have sex with one
of the women inside. I have the money to buy it, and I'm not leaving until I
The Madam figured, why not, so she told him to come in. Once in, she told
him to pick any of the girls he liked. He asked, "Do any of the girls have
any venereal diseases?" Of course the Madam said no.
He said, "I heard all the men talking about having to get shots after making
love with Amber. THAT'S the girl I want."
Since the little boy was so adamant and had the money to pay for it, the
cynical Madam told him to go to the first room on the right. He headed down
the hall dragging the squashed amphibian behind him. Ten minutes later he
came back, still dragging the frog, paid the Madam, and headed out the door.
The Madam stopped him and asked, "Why did you pick the only girl in the
place with a disease, instead of one of the others?"
He said, Well, if you must know, tonight when I get home, my parents are
going out to a restaurant to eat, leaving me at home with a baby-sitter.
After they leave, my baby-sitter will have sex with me because she just
happens to be very fond of cute little boys. She will then get the dose
that I just caught.
When Mum and Dad get back, Dad will take the baby-sitter home. On the way,
he'll give her one in the car and he'll catch the dose. Then when Dad gets
home from the baby-sitter's, he and Mum will go to bed and have sex, and Mum
will catch it.

She sat across from me
in Rosie's Diner and patted a carnation that wilted over her right ear. She
was large with a brawler's jaw and a wobbly set of boobs that would have
been spectacular about 20 years ago. She dumped her handbag on the floor.
"OK," she said. "Get

"Bloody oath. And
right in the middle of a lesbian pissup too. Guess there musta been a snitch
in our knickers."
"Ms. Cretin, just why
did you come to the Philippines?"
She paused, and I
could see her trying to figure out if the question was serious. I stared
back into a face that wrinkled like Jell-O in a typhoon.
"What a bloody dumb
question. We came here to look into the rackets—you know, the girls and the
bars and stuff."
"You mean the girlie
them—bloody girlie bars."

about the girlie bars here in Angeles?"
"The girls mostly. How

I took another look at
Ms. Cretin. Her boobs were bound up in a huge elastic brassiere. A mousy
strand of hair fell across a face slashed with lipstick and aggression.
Before I could reply she went on:
"And that's not
all—look at how they walk, all poncy like cats on hot bricks wriggling those
neat little bums while we just have to plod along draggin' the lard. You
call that fair?"
"You mean you're
jealous?" Oops, that was a mistake and I ducked under a handbag that would
have taken my head clean off.
"Jealous? Me jealous?
Of course I'm not bloody jealous." She paused for breath. "We just want
justice, that's all. Equality. But there's no justice in this country. We
should have stayed at home on the dole."
"Ms. Cretin, now that
you are out on the street homeless, what are your plans?"
"Another bloody stupid
question—like whores everywhere we'll just have to drop our drawers."
I resisted an urge to
ask about the competition.

Stalk Strine (10th Oct '04)
After being away for 44 years
adjusting to life in the Land of OZ is not easy. One problem is the language
- I rarely understand what people are saying. For example, the other day I
was in a typical Ocker pub. At the next table there was a barge-arsed
streaky-haired blonde talking with some bloke almost as pissed as she was. I
made some notes in shorthand and when I got home I managed to transcribe
them with the help of a book called "Let Stalk Strine (Let's Talk
Australian)." In the following transcript the words in brackets are my
interpretations of the original Strine.
"I jus gunga din (I just can't get

I looked up from my notetaking. They
were both staring at me. "Where cheque etcher cheek? (Where did you get your
cheek?)" the blonde screamed.
"It's all right," I replied. "I'm
just taking notes in shorthand. It's an English version called Teeline. It's
very popular in the U.K.."
They looked at each other and
finally the Blonde shook her head and said, "Zarf trawl zat dinner unerstan
a word. Aorta teach Poms to stalk rite. (After all that I didn't understand
a word. They aught to teach the English to talk right)."
I didn't have the heart to tell them
that I was born in Mudgee, Australia. They wouldn't have believed me anyway.
The Letter (20th Aug '04)
A father entered his daughter's bedroom and saw a letter on the bed. With
the worst premonition, he read it with trembling hands.
Dear Mum and Dad,
It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm telling you that I've eloped
with my new boyfriend. I've found real love and he is so nice. Especially
with all his piercing, scars, tattoos and his big motorcycle.
But it's not only that. I'm pregnant, and Ahmed said that we will be very
happy in his trailer in the woods. He wants to have many more children with
me and that's one of my dreams.
I've learned that marijuana doesn't hurt anyone and we'll be growing it for
us and his friends. They're the one's providing us with all the cocaine and
ecstasy we could ever want.
In the meantime, we'll pray for science to find the AIDS cure, so Ahmed gets
better. He deserves it.
Don’t worry about money. Ahmed has arranged for me to be in films that his
friends Leroy and Jamal make in their basement. Apparently I can earn £50 a
scene. I get a £50 bonus if there are more than three men in the scene, and
an extra £100 if they use the horse.
Don't worry Mum. Now I'm 15 years old, I know how to take care of myself.
Someday I'll visit you and Dad so that you can meet your grandchildren.
Your loving daughter, Aimee
p.s: Dad, it's not true. I’m watching TV at a neighbour's house. I just
wanted to show you that there are worse things in life than ENGLAND GETTING
BEAT ON F*CKING PENALTIES AGAIN.
I love you. Aimee

The Meaning Of
Life (7th July '04
the first day God created the dog. God said, "Sit all
day by the door of your house
and bark at anyone who
comes in or walks past.
I will give you a life span of twenty years."
The dog said, "That's too
long to be barking. Give me
ten years and I'll give
you back the other ten." So God agreed.
On the second day God
created the monkey. God said,
"Entertain people, do monkey
tricks, make them laugh.
I'll give you a twenty-year life
The monkey said, "How boring,
monkey tricks for twenty
years? I don't think so. Dog
gave you back ten, so that's
what I'll do too, okay?"
And God agreed.
On the third day God
created the cow. God said, "You
must go to the field with the
farmer all day long and suffer
under the sun, have calves and
give milk to support the farmer.
I will give you a life span of
The cow said, "That's kind of a
tough life you want me to live
for sixty years. Let me have
twenty and I'll give back the
other forty." And God agreed
On the forth day God
created man. God said, "Eat, sleep,
play, marry and enjoy your
life. I'll give you twenty years."
Man said, "What? Only twenty
years! Tell you what, I'll take
my twenty, and the forty the cow
gave back and the ten the
monkey gave back and the ten the
dog gave back, that makes
"Okay," said God, "you've
got a deal."
So that is why the first
twenty years we eat, sleep, play, and

ten years we do monkey tricks
to entertain the grandchildren;

Mouse Balls (29th June '04)
know how they wrote this with a straight face. This was a real memo
sent out by a computer company (IBM) to its employees in all
seriousness. It went to all field engineers about a computer
peripheral problem. The author of this memo was quite genuine. The engineers
rolled on the floor! Especially note the last couple of sentences:
Replacement of Mouse Balls
mouse fails to operate or should it perform erratically, it may need a ball
replacement. Mouse balls are now available as FRU (Field Replacement Units).
of the delicate nature of this procedure, replacement of mouse balls should
only be attempted by properly trained personnel.
proceeding, determine the type of mouse balls by examining the
underside of the mouse. Domestic balls will be larger and harder than
foreign balls. Ball removal procedures differ depending upon the
manufacturer of the mouse. Foreign balls can be replaced using the pop off
method. Domestic balls are replaced by using the twist off method.
balls are not usually static sensitive. However, excessive handling can
result in sudden discharge.
completion of ball replacement, the mouse may be used immediately.
recommended that each person have a pair of spare balls for maintaining
optimum customer satisfaction. Any customer missing his balls should contact
the local personnel in charge of removing and replacing these necessary
keep in mind that a customer without properly working balls is an unhappy

The Lone Ranger and Tonto
walked into a store to buy some supplies.
After a few minutes, a big tall cowboy walked in and said "Who owns the
big white horse outside? " The Lone Ranger said, "I do, Why?" The cowboy
said, "I just thought you'd like to know that your horse is about dead
The Lone Ranger and Tonto rushed outside and sure enough Silver was about
to die from heat exhaustion.
The Lone Ranger got water and soon Silver was starting to feel
a little better.
The Lone Ranger
turns to Tonto and said, "I want you to run around Silver and see if you can
create enough of a breeze to help cool him down." Tonto said, "Sure,
Kemosabe" and begins running circles around Silver.
Unable to do
anything except wait, the Lone Ranger returns to the store to finish buying
A few minutes later, another cowboy struts into the store and
asks, "Who owns that big white horse out side?" The Lone Ranger stands and
claims, I do, what's wrong with him this time?
The cowboy looks him in the eye and says:
I JUST LOVE THIS...

The European Union commissioners
have announced that agreement has been reached to adopt English as the

Two women are
new arrivals at the pearly gates and are comparing stories
on how they died.
1st woman : I
froze to death.
2nd woman : How
1st woman : It
wasn't so bad.. after I quit shaking from the cold, I began to get warm and
sleepy, and finally died a peaceful death. What about you?
2nd woman : I
died of a massive heart attack. I suspected that my husband was cheating, so
I came home early to catch him in the act. But instead, I found him all by
himself watching TV in the den.
1st woman : So
2nd woman : I
was so sure there was another woman there somewhere that I started running
all over the house looking. I ran up into the attic and then down in the
basement. Then I went through every closet and checked under all the beds. I
kept this up until I had looked everywhere, and finally exhausted and
stressed, I just keeled over with a heart attack and died!
1st woman : Too
bad you didn't look in the freezer. We'd both still be alive.
Another Cowboy Joke (4th April '04)
An old cowboy sat down at the bar
and ordered a drink. As he sat sipping his drink, a young woman sat down
next to him. She turned to the cowboy and asked, "Are you a real cowboy?"
He replied, "Well, I've spent my
whole life, breaking colts, working cows, going to rodeos, fixing fences,
pulling calves, bailing hay, doctoring calves, cleaning my barn, fixing
flats, working on tractors, and feeding my dogs, so I guess I am a cowboy."
She said, "I'm a lesbian. I spend my
whole day thinking about women. As soon as I get up in the morning, I think
about women. When I shower, I think about women. When I watch TV, I think
about women. I even think about women when I eat. It seems that everything
makes me think of women."
The two sat sipping in silence.
A little while later, a man sat down
on the other side of the old cowboy and asked, "Are you a real cowboy?"
He replied, "I always thought I was,
but I just found out I'm a lesbian.
Sometimes you have

A bloke's wife goes missing while holidaying on the North Queensland coast.
He spends a terrible night wondering what could have happened to her.
Next morning there's a knock at the door and he is confronted by a couple of
pretty miserable policemen, the old Sarge and a younger Constable.
The Sarge says, "Mate, we have some news for you, unfortunately some really
bad news, but, some good news and maybe some really good news".
"Well," says the bloke, "You'd better let me have it both barrels, what's
the bad news?"
The Sarge says, "I'm really sorry pal, but your wife is dead. Young Bill
here found her lying at about five fathoms in a little cleft in the reef.
He got a line around her and we pulled her up, but she was dead."
The bloke is naturally pretty distressed to hear this and has a bit of a
After a few minutes he pulls himself together and asks what the good news
The sarge says, "Well when we got your wife up there were quite a few really
good sized crays and a swag of legal muddies in and around her wetsuit, so
we've brought you your share." And he hands the bloke a sugar bag with a
couple of nice crays and four or five crabs in it.
"Geez thanks. They're
bloody beaut, I guess it's an ill wind and all that.
Now, what's the really good news?"
"Well", the Sarge says, "me and young Bill here get off duty at around 11
o'clock and we're gonna shoot over there and pull her up again!....you fancy
comin' with us?"

My romantic history - Anon. (19th March '04)
When I was 14, I hoped that one day I would have a girlfriend.
When I was 16 I got a girlfriend, but there was no passion, so I decided I
needed a passionate girl with a zest for life.
In college I dated a passionate girl, but she was too emotional. Everything
was an emergency; she was a drama queen, cried all the time and threatened
suicide. So I decided I needed a girl with stability.
When I was 25 I found a very stable girl but she was boring. She was totally
predictable and never got excited about anything. Life became so dull that
decided that I needed a girl with some excitement.
When I was 26 I found an exciting girl, but I couldn't keep up with her. She
rushed from one thing to another, never settling on anything. She did mad
impetuous things and made me miserable as often as happy. She was great fun
initially and very energetic, but directionless. So I decided to find a girl
with some real ambition.
When I turned 28, I found a smart ambitious girl with her feet planted
firmly on the ground and married her. She was so ambitious that she divorced
me and took everything I owned.
I am now older and wiser, and am looking for a girl with big tits
Colin Cox's Dog Called Sex (11th
Everybody I know who has a dog
usually calls them "Rover" or "Spot". I call mine Sex. Now, Sex has been
very embarrassing to me. When I went to the Council Offices to renew the
dog's license, I told the clerk that I would like a license for Sex. He
said, "I would like to have one too!" Then I said, "But she is a dog!" He
said he didn't care what she looked like. I said, "You don't understand. ...
I have had Sex since I was nine years old." He replied, "You must have been
quite advanced for your years." When I decided to get married, I told the
vicar that I would like to have Sex at the wedding. He told me to wait until
after the wedding was over. I said, "But Sex has played a big part in my
life and my whole world revolves around Sex." He said he didn't want to hear
about my personal life and would not marry us in his church. I told him
everyone would enjoy having Sex at the wedding. The next day we were married
at a Registry Office. My family have never been allowed to go to church ever
When my wife and I went on our honeymoon, I took the dog with me. When we
checked into the motel, I told the receptionist that I wanted a room for me
and my wife and a special room for Sex. She said that every room in the
motel is a place for sex. I said, "You don't understand. ... Sex keeps me
awake at night." The receptionist said, "Me too!"
One day I entered Sex in a contest. But before the competition began, the
dog ran away. Another contestant asked me why I was just looking around. I
told him that I was going to have Sex in the contest. He said that I should
have sold my own tickets. "You don't understand," I said, "I hoped to have
Sex on TV." He called me a show off.
When my wife and I separated, we went to court to fight for custody of the
dog. I said, "Your Honour, I had Sex before I was married but Sex left me
after I was married." The Judge said, "Same here!"
Last night Sex ran off again. I spent hours looking all over for her.
A policeman came over and asked me what I was doing down a dark alleyway at
4 o'clock in the morning. I said, "I'm looking for Sex." My case comes up
Well now I've been thrown in jail, been divorced and had more damn troubles
with that dog than I ever foresaw. Just the other day when I went for my
first session with the psychiatrist, she asked me, "What seems to be the
trouble?" I replied, "Sex has been my best friend all my life but now it has
left me for ever. I can't live any longer being so lonely." Do you know what
the psychiatrist said? She told me that I had to get a grip and understand
that sex isn't a man's best friend so go out and get myself a dog!

80-year old guy goes to the doctor for a check-up. The doctor is amazed at
what good shape the guy is in and asks, "How do you stay in such great
a golfer," says the old guy, "and that's why I'm in such good shape. I'm up
well before daylight."
"Well," ways the doctor, "I'm sure that helps, but there's got to be more to
it. How old was your dad when he died?"
said my dad's dead?"
doctor is amazed. "You mean you're 80 years old and your dad's still alive?
How old is he?"
"He's 100 years old," says the old golfer. "In fact, he golfed with me this
morning, and that's why he's still alive... he's a golfer too."
"Well," the doctor says, "that's great, but I'm sure there's more to it than
that. How about your dad's dad? How old was he when he died?"
said my grandpa's dead?"
Stunned, doctor asks, "You mean you're 80 years old and your grandfather's
still living! Just how old is he anyway?"
"He's 118 years old," says the old golfer.
doctor is getting frustrated at this point and says, "So, I guess he went
golfing with you this morning too?"
"No... Grandpa couldn't go this morning because he got married."
doctor can hardly believe it. "Got married!! Why in the hell would a
118-year-old guy want to get married?"
said he wanted to?"
