A young boy ran excitedly into the house yelling "Grandpa!  Make a sound like a frog!" 
Grandpa says, "Whoa!  Whatta ya mean make a noise like a frog?"
"You know, that noise that frogs make at night."
"Why do you want me to do that?" Grandpa asks.
And the boy tells him, "Grandma says that when you croak, we're going to Disneyland!"

Hold Those Chickens
A farmer stopped by the local mechanic shop to have his truck
Fixed. They couldn't do it while he waited, so he decided he
Would just walk home.
On the way home he stopped at the hardware store and bought a
Bucket and a gallon of paint. He then stopped by the feed store
And picked up a couple of chickens and a goose. However,
Struggling outside the store he now had a problem -- how to
Carry all of his purchases home.
While he was scratching his head, he was approached by a little
Old lady who told him she was lost. She asked: "Can you tell me
How to get to 1603 Mockingbird Lane?"
The farmer said: "Well, as a matter of fact, my farm is very
Close to that house. I would walk you there but I can't carry
This lot."
The old lady suggested: "Why don't you put the can of paint in
The bucket, carry the bucket in one hand, put a chicken under
Each arm, and carry the goose in your other hand?"
"Why, thank you very much," he said and proceeded to walk the
Old girl home. On the way he said: "Let's take my shortcut and
Go down this alley. We'll be there in no time."
The little old lady looked him over cautiously, then said: "I
Am a lonely widow without a husband to defend me. How do I know
That when we get in the alley you won't hold me up against the
Wall and have your way with me?"
The farmer said: "Holy smokes, lady! I'm carrying a bucket, a
Gallon of paint, two chickens, and a goose. How in the world
Could I possibly hold you up against the wall and do that?"
The old lady replied: "Set the goose down, cover him with the
Bucket, put the paint on top of the bucket, and I'll hold the

Bottle of Wine
A woman and a man are involved in a car accident on a snowy, cold Monday morning; it's a bad one.  Both of their cars are totally demolished, but amazingly neither of them is hurt.  God works in mysterious ways.  After they crawl our of their cars, the man is yelling about women drivers.
The woman says, 'So, you're a man.  That's interesting.  I'm a woman.  Wow!  Just look at our cars!  There's nothing left, but we're unhurt.  This must be a sign from God that we should be friends and live in peace for the rest of our days.'
Flattered. the man replies, 'Oh, yes, I agree completely, this must be a sign from God!  But you're still at fault....woman shouldn't be allowed to drive.'
The woman continues, 'And look at this, here's another miracle.  My car is completely demolished but this bottle of wine didn't break.  Surely God wants us to drink this wine and celebrate our good fortune.  She hands the bottle to the man.
The man nods his head in agreement, opens it and drinks half the bottle and then hands it back to the woman.
The woman takes the bottle, puts the cap back on and hands it back to the man.
The man asks, 'Aren't you having any?'
The woman replies, 'No, I think I'll just wait for the police.'
Women are very clever, sometimes evil
Don't mess with them

The preacher stopped Leroy as he was leaving the church last Sunday and wanted to know if he had any problems, anything perhaps he could help him with. 
"Just my hearing." Leroy told him.  With that the preacher put his two fingers in Leroy's ears and began chanting, praying and generally putting on quite a performance.
"How's your hearing now?" the cleric finally asked.
"Okay, I guess but actually the hearing's not until next week," Leroy told him.

Like everyone else, I'm fed up with all this government waste.  Just this past year, they spent over 2 million dollars studying fire hydrants and came to the conclusion that everything inside them was H2O and everything on the outside was K9P!

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.  Born and bread in Minnesota, 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 still was a crusty old man and was considered a positive roll model for millions.
Doughboy is survived by his wife Play Dough, three children: John Dough, Jane Dough and Dosey Dough, plus they had one in the oven.  He is also survived by his elderly father Pop Tart.
The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 26 minutes.

A  teenaged boy had just passed his driving test and inquired of his father as to when they could discuss his use of the  car.

                His  father said he'd make a deal with his son: 'You bring your grades up from a C to a B average, study your Bible a little, and get your hair cut.Then we'll talk about the car.' The boy thought about that for a  moment, decided he'd settle for the offer, and they agreed on  it.

                After about six weeks his father said, 'Son, you've brought  your grades up and I've observed that you have been studying your Bible,  but I'm disappointed you haven't had your hair cut.

                The  boy said, 'You know, Dad, I've been thinking about that, and I've noticed in my studies of the Bible that Samson had long hair, John the Baptist had long hair, Moses had long hair...and there's even strong evidence that Jesus had long hair.'

                To this his father replied,  'Did you also notice they all walked everywhere they went?'

 Dinner  Decisions:

A group of 40 year old buddies discussed where they should meet for dinner.

Finally it was agreed upon that they should meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the waiters and waitresses there were very young and very hot.

10 years later at 50 years of age, the group once again  discussed where they should meet for dinner. Finally it was agreed that they should meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the food there was very good and the wine selection was good also.

10 years later at  60 years of age, the group once again discussed where they should meet for dinner. Finally it was agreed that they should meet at the Ocean View restaurant because they could eat there in peace and quiet and the restaurant had a beautiful view of the ocean.

10 years later, at  70 years of age, the group once again discussed where they should meet for dinner. Finally it was agreed that they should meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the restaurant was wheel chair accessible and they even had an elevator.

10 years later, at 80 years of age,  the group once again discussed where they should meet for dinner.  Finally it was agreed that they should meet at the Ocean View restaurant because they had never been there before.  
Bill Clark sent this one to us.

And then there was this Oriental gentleman who went to the eye doctor and after the examination, the doctor asked him, "Do you know you have a cataract?"
"No," the Oriental man replied, "I have a Winkin'  Continental!"

God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day..

He inquired, "Where have you been?"

God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."

Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"

"It's a planet," replied God, and I've put life on it.. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to test Balance."

"Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm still confused."

God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth. "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over here I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things."

God continued pointing to different countries. "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

The Archangel , impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?"

"That's Maryland , the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, and plains. The people from Maryland are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to travel the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things."

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance..."

God smiled, "Right next to Maryland is Washington , DC . Wait till you see the idiots I put there."

A census taker in a rural area went up to a farmhouse and knocked. When a woman came to the door, he asked her how many children she had and their ages.

She said, "Les' see now, there's the twins, Kathy and Katy, they're eighteen. And the twins, Seth and Beth, they're sixteen. And the twins, Penny and Jenny, they're fourteen---- "

"Hold on!" said the census taker, "Did you get twins every time?"

The woman answered, "Heck no, there were whole bunch of times we didn't get nothin'."

Saturday morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my lunch, grabbed the dog, and slipped quietly into the garage. I hooked up the boat up to the truck, and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour.. The wind was blowing 50 mph, so I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad all day.

I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed. I cuddled up to my wife's back, now with a different anticipation,and whispered, "The weather out there is terrible."

My loving wife of 10 years replied, "Can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that?"

And that's how the fight started...

An older, white haired man walked into a jewelry  store one Friday evening with a beautiful young gal at his side.
He told the jeweler he was looking for a special ring for his girlfriend.
The jeweler looked through his stock and brought out a $5,000 ring.
The old man said, 'No, I'd like to see something more special.'
At that statement, the jeweler went to his special stock and brought another ring over. 'Here's a stunning ring at only $40,000,' the jeweler said.
The young lady's eyes sparkled and her whole body trembled with excitement.  The old man seeing this said, 'We'll take it.'
The jeweler asked how payment would be made and the old man stated, 'by check. I know you need to make sure my check is good, so I'll write it now and you can call the bank on Monday to verify the funds and I'll pick the ring up Monday afternoon.'
Monday morning, the jeweler phoned the old man. 'There's no money in that account.'
'I know,' said the old man, 'but let me take you to lunch so I can tell you about my weekend!'
        Not All Seniors Are Senile!!!

It is near the end of the school year. The teacher has turned in her grades. There is really nothing to do. All the kids are restless because there is nothing to do,  and it is near the end of the day.

The teacher says, "Whoever answers the questions I ask first and correctly can leave early today..."  Little Johnny says to himself, "Good, I want to get outta here. I'm smart and will answer the question".

The teacher asked, "Who said 'Four Score and Seven, years ago'?" Before Johnny could open his mouth, Susie said, "Abraham Lincoln". The teacher said, "That's right Susie. You can go". Johnny was MAD that Susie answered first.

The teacher asked, "Who said, 'I Have a Dream'?"  Before Johnny could open his mouth, Mary said, "Martin Luther King". The teacher said, "That's right Mary. You can go too". Johnny was even MADDER than before that Mary answered first.

The teacher asked, "Who said 'Ask not, what your country can do for you'?" Before Johnny could open his mouth, Nancy said, "John F Kennedy". The teacher said, "That's right Nancy . You can also go". Johnny was BOILING MAD by this time that Nancy had answered first.

Then the teacher turned her back to the class, and Johnny said, "I wish these broads would keep their mouths shut!" The teacher spun round and asked, "WHO SAID THAT?"

Johnny said, "TIGER WOODS! CAN I GO NOW…………?"

Snakes also known as Garter Snakes (Thamnophissirtalis) can be dangerous. Yes, grass snakes, not rattlesnakes. Here's why.

A couple in  Sweetwater, Texas had a lot of potted plants. During a recent cold spell, the wife was bringing a lot of them indoors to protect them from a possible freeze.

It turned out that a little green garden grass snake was hidden in one of the plants. When it had warmed up, it slithered out and the wife saw it go under the sofa.

She let out a very loud scream.

The husband (who was taking a shower) ran out into the living room naked to see what the problem was. She told him there was a snake under the sofa.

He got down on the floor on his hands and knees to look for it. About that time the family dog came and cold-nosed him on the behind. He thought the snake had bitten him, so he screamed and fell over on the floor.

His wife thought he had had a heart attack, so she covered him up, told him to lie still and called an ambulance.

The attendants rushed in, would not listen to his protests, loaded him on the stretcher, and started carrying him out.

About that time, the snake came out from under the sofa and the Emergency Medical Technician saw it and dropped his end of the stretcher. That's when the man broke his leg and why he is still in the hospital.

The wife still had the problem of the snake in the house, so she called on a neighbor who volunteered to capture the snake. He armed himself with a rolled-up newspaper and began poking under the couch. Soon he decided it was gone and told the woman, who sat down on the sofa in relief.

But while relaxing, her hand dangled in between the cushions, where she felt the snake wriggling around. She screamed and fainted, the snake rushed back under the sofa.

The neighbor man, seeing her lying there passed out, tried to use CPR to revive her.

The neighbor's wife, who had just returned from shopping at the grocery store, saw her husband's mouth on the woman's mouth and slammed her husband in the back of the head with a bag of canned goods, knocking him out and cutting his scalp to a point where it needed stitches.

The noise woke the woman from her dead faint and she saw her neighbor lying on the floor with his wife bending over him, so she assumed that the snake had bitten him. She went to the kitchen and got a small bottle of whiskey, and began pouring it down the man's throat.

By now, the police had arrived.
Breathe here...

They saw the unconscious man, smelled the whiskey, and assumed that a drunken fight had occurred. They were about to arrest them all, when the women tried to explain how it all happened over a little garden snake!

The police called an ambulance, which took away the neighbor and his sobbing wife.

Now, the little snake again crawled out from under the sofa and one of the policemen drew his gun and fired at it. He missed the snake and hit the leg of the end table. The table fell over, the lamp on it shattered and, as the bulb broke, it started a fire in the drapes.

The other policeman tried to beat out the flames, and fell through the window into the yard on top of the family dog who, startled, jumped out and raced into the street, where an oncoming car swerved to avoid it and smashed into the parked police car.

Meanwhile, neighbors saw the burning drapes and called in the fire department. The firemen had started raising the fire ladder when they were halfway down the street. The rising ladder tore out the overhead wires, put out the power, and disconnected the telephones in a ten-square city block area (but they did get the house fire out).

Time passed! Both men were discharged from the hospital, the house was repaired, the dog came home, the police acquired a new car and all was right with their world.

A while later they were watching TV and the weatherman announced a cold snap for that night. The wife asked her husband if he thought they should bring in their plants for the night.

And that's when he shot her.

Thanks to our friend Elmer Hatcher for this one.

Justice in Lincoln, Nebraska

LINCOLN, NE. (AP) - A seven-year old boy was at the center of a LANCASTER County courtroom drama yesterday when he challenged a court ruling over who should have custody of him.. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents and the judge initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible.. 

The boy surprised the court  when he proclaimed that his aunt beat him more than his parents and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he live with his grandparents, the boy cried and said that they also beat him.

After considering the remainder of the immediate family and learning that domestic violence was apparently a way of life among them, the judge took the unprecedented step of allowing the boy to propose who should have custody of him.

After two recesses to check legal references and confer with the child welfare officials, the judge granted temporary custody to the Nebraska Cornhuskers, whom the boy firmly believes are not capable of beating anyone.


The Chief's Fan
A fellow went into a bar on a Sunday afternoon and discovered that the Kansas City Chiefs football team was on TV.  He said to the bartender "For goodness sakes, I didn't know the Chiefs were on.  My dog just loves 'em and loves to watch them on TV.  He's out in the truck.  Do you mind if I bring him in?"  The bartender said, "No, it's kinda slow today.  Bring him on in."
The customer brought his dog in and the dog's eyes were glued to the TV.  He watched every play with growing excitement and when the Chiefs finally kicked a field goal, he went wild with joy, raced around the bar, did back flips and grinned from ear to ear.  The bartender was amazed at the dog's happiness over a field goal and asked the owner, "If he gets this excited over a field goal, what does he do when the Chiefs score a touchdown?"  The dog's owner said, "I have no idea.  I've only had him for two years."

You know, I was just wondering....

Why is it that if you cross the North  Korean border illegally you get
thrown into prison and get 12 years of hard labor; and if you cross the
Iranian border while out supposedly leisurely hiking in the hills, you
get arrested and imprisoned; But if you cross the U.S. border illegally,
you get a drivers license, a Social Security card, free health care, 
free education, and sometimes even get to vote. 

Who's bright idea was this?

I'm Just curious.

Light travels faster than sound.   This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

You will get a chuckle out of this one.

       A woman was at work when she received a phone call that her small daughter was very sick with a fever. She left her work and stopped by the pharmacy to get some medication. She got back to her car and found that she had locked her keys in the car. She didn't know what to do, so she called home and told the baby sitter what had happened.

       The baby sitter told her that the fever was getting worse. She said, "You might find a coat hanger and use that to open the door." The woman looked around and found an old rusty coat hanger that had been left on the ground, possibly by someone else who at some time had locked their keys in their car. She looked at the hanger and said, "I don't know how to use this."

       She bowed her head and asked God to send her help. Within five minutes a beat up old motorcycle pulled up, with a dirty, greasy, bearded man who was wearing an old biker skull rag on his head. The woman thought, "This is what you sent to help me?" But, she was desperate, so she was also very thankful. The man got off of his cycle and asked if he could help.

       She said, "Yes, my daughter is very sick. I stopped to get her some medication and I locked my keys in my car. I must get home to her. Please, can you use this hanger to unlock my car?

       He said, "Sure." He walked over to the car, and in less than a minute the car was opened.

       She hugged the man and through her tears she said, "Thank you so much! You are a very nice man."

       The man replied, "Lady, I am not a nice man. I just got out of prison today. I was in prison for car theft and have only been out for about an hour."

       The woman hugged the man again and with sobbing tears cried out loud, "Oh, Thank you God! You even sent me a professional!"
Thanks again to Bill Clark (we needed a chuckle today).

I was camping last week, and had pretty much had my fill of roasted marshmallows. So after much ado about telling everyone goodnight I went to sleep. During the night I dreamed I was eating a 30 pound Marshmallow.
The next morning when I woke up I noticed something odd.-------wait for it.
                                My pillow was gone!

The Gynecologist
A gynecologist had become fed up with malpractice insurance and HMO paperwork and was burned out. Hoping to try another career where skillful hands would be beneficial,
he decided to become a mechanic. He went to the local technical college , signed up for classes, attended diligently, and learned all he could. When the time for the practical exam approached, the gynecologist prepared carefully for weeks and completed the exam with tremendous skill.
 When the results came back, he was surprised to find that he had obtained a score of 150%. Fearing an error, he called the instructor, saying, "I don't want to appear ungrateful for such an outstanding result, but I wonder if there is an error in the grade."
The instructor said, "During the exam, you took the engine apart perfectly, which was worth 50% of the total mark.
"You put the engine back together again perfectly, which is also worth  50% of the mark."

 After a pause, the instructor added, "I gave you an extra 50% because you did it all through the muffler, which I've never seen done in my entire life.

A little old lady  answered a knock on the door one day, only to be confronted by a well-dressed young man carrying a vacuum  cleaner. 'Good morning,' said the young man. 'If I could  take a couple of minutes of your time, I would like to  demonstrate the very latest in high-powered vacuum cleaners.'
'Go away!' said the old lady. 'I'm broke and  haven't got any money!' and she proceeded to close the  door.
Quick as a flash,the young man wedged his foot in  the door and pushed it wide open.
'Don't be too hasty!'he said. 'Not until you have at least seen my demonstration.'  And with
that, he emptied a bucket of horse manure onto  her hallway carpet. 'If this vacuum cleaner does not  remove all traces of this horse manure from your carpet, Madam, I will personally eat the remainder.'
The old lady  stepped back and said, 'Well let me get you a fork, 'cause  they cut off my electricity this morning.'
Another Bill Clark joke!

A blind man went into a bar and after ordering asked the lady bartender if she would like to hear a blond joke.
"Look," the bartender said, "our bouncer over there is tough as nails, big as a house and blond, by the way.  Sitting right beside you is a steel worker with big arms and a nasty disposition who's also blond and at the table behind you is a lady wrestler and a weightlifter who also happen to be blond.  And, of course there's also me, I'm 6' and weight 175 and blond as well.  Now, are you sure you want to tell that blond joke?"
"No," said the blind man, "not if I'm going to have to explain it five times!"

The Veterinarian
One Sunday, in counting the money in the weekly offering, the Pastor of a small church found a pink envelope containing $1,000. It happened again the next week!
The following Sunday, he watched as the offering was collected and saw an elderly woman put the distinctive pink envelope on the plate. This went on for weeks until the pastor, overcome by curiosity, approached her.
"Ma'am, I couldn't help but notice that you put $1,000 a week in the collection plate," he stated.
"Why yes," she replied, "every week my son sends me money and I give some of it to the church."
 The pastor replied, "That's wonderful. But $1000 is a lot, are you sure you can afford this? How much does he send you?"
The elderly woman answered, "$10,000 a week."
 The pastor was amazed. "Your son is very successful; what does he do for a living?"
 "He is a veterinarian," she answered.
"That's an honorable profession, but I had no idea they made that much money," the pastor said. "Where does he practice?"
The woman answered proudly, "In Nevada .. He has two cat houses, one in Las Vegas , and one in Reno '

The elderly priest, speaking to the younger priest, said, "You had a good idea to replace the first four pews with plush bucket theatre seats.  It worked like a charm.  The front of the church always fills first now.

The young priest nodded, and the old priest continued, "And you told me adding a little more beat to the music would bring young people back to church, so I supported you when you brought in that rock 'n roll gospel choir.  Now our services are always packed to the balcony."
"Thank you, Father," answered the young priest.  "I am pleased that you are open to the new ideas of youth."

"All of these ideas have been well and good," said the elderly priest, "but I'm afraid you've gone too far with the drive-thru confessional."

"But Father," protested the young priest, "My confessions and the donations have nearly doubled since I began that!''

"Yes," replied the elderly priest, "And I appreciate that.  But the flashing neon sign, 'Toot 'n Tell or Go to Hell' cannot stay on the church roof."

*A man who just died is delivered to a local mortuary wearing an expensive, expertly tailored black suit.*
The female blonde mortician asks the deceased's wife how she would like the body dressed. She points out that the man does look good in the black suit he is already wearing.
The widow, however, says that she always thought her husband looked his best in blue, and that she wants him in a blue suit. She gives the Blonde mortician a blank check and says, 'I don't care what it costs, but please have my husband in a blue suit for the viewing.'
The woman returns the next day for the wake. To her delight, she finds her husband dressed in a gorgeous blue suit with a subtle chalk stripe; the suit fits him perfectly. 
She says to the mortician, 'Whatever this cost, I'm very satisfied. You did an excellent job and I' m very grateful. How much did you spend?' To her astonishment, the blonde mortician presents her with the blank check.
'There's no charge,' she says.
'No, really, I must compensate you for the cost of that exquisite blue suit!' she says.

 'Honestly, ma'am,' the blonde says, 'it cost nothing. You see, a deceased gentleman of about your husband's size was brought in shortly after you left yesterday, and he was wearing an attractive blue suit. I asked his wife if she minded him going to his grave wearing a black suit instead, and she said it made no difference as long as he looked nice.'

A guy once told his mother that he didn't want to go to church.
"But you have to go to church," his mother told him.
"I'll give you two reasons why I'm not going to church," he told her.
"One: they don't like me and two: I don't like them."
"And I'll give you two reasons why you have to go," his mother replied.
"One: you're 59 years old and two: you're the pastor!"

  Cuz'n Cricket was playing Bingo down at the church one Friday night awhile back and won.  When he went up to claim his prize, they handed him an odd-shaped brush.  Afterwards, he handed it to me and asked me what it was for.
  "Cricket," I told him, "you're the proud owner of a brand-new toliet brush!"
  Several days later, I saw him on the street and asked him how he liked his new toliet brush.
  "I guess it's okay," he said, "but I believe I'll go back to paper!"

Living Will:

Last  night, my wife and I were sitting in the living room talking about many  things. The idea of a living will came up and I said to  her, "I never want to live in a  vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If  I ever come to that just pull the plug."

She got up, unplugged the TV  and then threw out  my beer.

Pillow Talk
An older couple was lying in bed one night.  The husband was falling asleep but the wife felt romantic and wanted to talk  She said,  "You used to hold my hand when we were courting."  Wearily, he reached across, held her hand for a second and tried to get back to sleep.  A few moments  later she said, "Then you used to kiss me."  Mildly irritated, he reached across, gave her a peck on the cheek and settled down to sleep.   Thirty seconds later she said, "Then you used to bite my neck.  "Angrily he threw back the bed covers and got out of bed.  "Where are you going?"  she asked. "To get my teeth!"

The burglar stopped in his tracks. The woman calmly called the police and  explained what she had done. As the officer cuffed the man to take him in, he  asked the burglar, "Why did you just stand there? All the old lady did was yelling a scripture to you."

Conversation between the two men ensued.

"We went to a really nice restaurant the other night and the food was great and so were the prices", said one of the men.

"What was the name of the restaurant", asked the other.

"What flower?" asked the other man.

"You know the red one.  That one with the thorns." he went on.

"Oh, you mean the rose".

"Yep, that's it" and with that he turned toward the kitchen and yelled, "Rose, what's the name of that restaurant we went to the other night?"

I guess I'm starting to believe all those dumb blonde jokes we've been getting by e-mail lately.'  After a time, the blonde came to the door to collect her money.  "You're finished already", the startled husband asked.  "Yes", the blonde replied, "and I even had paint left over, so I gave it two coats.

Skinny Dippers
An elderly man in North Carolina had owned a large farm for several years. He had a large pond in the back, fixed up really nice, along with some picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some apple and peach trees. The pond was properly shaped and fixed up for swimming when it was built.
One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn't been there for a while, and look it over. He grabbed a five gallon bucket to bring back some fruit.

As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. When he came closer, he realized it was a bunch of young women skinny-dipping in his pond. He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end to shield themselves.

One of the women shouted to him, 'We're not coming out until you leave!'

The old man frowned and replied, 'I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked.' Holding the bucket up he said, 'I'm here to feed the alligator.'

Moral of the story: Old men may move slow but can still think fast!

Out west they were having quite a problem for the folks who raised sheep in the area.  Seems like there was a large population of coyotes that were killing and eating the sheep so the local ranchers decided to have a meeting and discuss possible solutions.  Most off the assembled wanted to either poison the coyotes or hire professional hunters to track them down and shoot them.  However, one man, a representative of the Sierra Club proposed trapping the offending animals in live cages, neutering them and then releasing them back into the population.  He felt that in time, this would control the population.
One good ol' boy sitting near the back in a pair of bib overalls listening to the proceedings, raised his hand and told the man, "Mister, I don't think you understand what's goin' on here.  Them coyotes aren't makin' love to our sheep.  They're eatin' 'em!"

Jack decided to go skiing with his buddy, Bob. So they loaded up Jack's minivan and headed north. After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard. So they pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered the door if they could spend the night.
"I realize it's terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to myself, but I'm recently widowed," she explained. "I'm afraid the neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house."
"Don't worry," Jack said. "We'll be happy to sleep in the barn. And if the weather breaks, we'll be gone at first light." The lady agreed, and the two men found their way to the barn and settled in for the night. Come morning, the weather had cleared, and they got on their way. They enjoyed a great weekend of skiing.
But about nine months later, Jack got an unexpected letter from an attorney. It took him a few minutes to figure it out, but he finally determined that it was from the attorney of that attractive widow he had met on the ski weekend.
He dropped in on his friend Bob and asked, "Bob, do you remember that good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our ski holiday up north ab out 9 months ago ?"
"Yes, I do." said Bob
"Did you, er, happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and pay her a visit?"
"Well, um, yes !," Bob said, a little embarrassed about being found out, "I have to admit that I did."
"And did you happen to give her my name instead of telling her your name?"

 Secret to A Long and Happy Marriage

 At All Saints Lutheran Church they have a weekly husband's marriage seminar. At the session last week, the Pastor  asked Ole, who was approaching his 50th wedding anniversary, to take  a few minutes and share some insight into how  he had managed to stay married to the same woman all these years.

'Vell,' Ole replied to the assembled husbands, 'I've tried to treat
her  nice, spend da money on her, but best of  all I took her to Norvay for da 20th anniversary!'

 The Pastor responded, Ole, you are an amazing inspiration to all the husbands here! Please tell us what you are  planning for your wife for your 50th anniversary.'

Redneck Bank Loan


Never underestimate an Alabama Redneck.

This really is good....


A Redneck from Pohickey, Alabama walked into a bank in New York City and asked for the loan officer. He told the loan officer that he was going to Paris on an international redneck festival for two weeks and needed to borrow $5,000 and that he was not a depositor of the bank.


The bank officer told him that the bank would need some form of security for the loan, so the Redneck handed over the keys to a new Ferrari. The car was parked on the street in front of the bank. The Redneck produced the title and everything checked out. The loan officer agreed to hold the car as collateral for the loan and apologized for having to charge 12% interest.


Later, the bank's president and its officers all enjoyed a good laugh at the Redneck from the south for using a $250,000 Ferrari as collateral for a $5,000 loan. An employee of the bank then drove the Ferrari into the bank's private underground garage and parked it.


Two weeks later, the Redneck returned, repaid the $5,000 and the interest of $23.07. The loan officer said, 'Sir, we are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out on Dunn & Bradstreet and found that you are a highly sophisticated investor and multimillionaire with real estate and financial interests all over the world. What puzzles us is, why would you bother to borrow $5,000?'


The good 'ole Alabama boy replied, 'Where else in New York City can I park my car for two weeks for only $23.07 and expect it to be there when I return?'
