Stealing Lumber
From: Mr Funny Bone International
Date: 1 Mar 2003

A man with a nagging secret couldn't keep it any longer.  In the confessional he admitted that for years he had been stealing building supplies from the lumberyard where he worked.

"What did you take?," the priest asked.

"Enough to build my own house and enough for my son's house.  And houses for our two daughters and our cottage at the lake."

"This is very serious," the priest said.  "I shall have to think of a far-reaching penance.  Have you ever done a retreat?"

"No, Father, I haven't," the man replied.  "But if you can get the plans, I can get the lumber."

Letter from Jesus
From: Ron Ablang
Date: 3 Mar 2003

Ruth went to her mail box and there was only one letter.  She picked it up and looked at it before opening, but then she looked at the envelope again.  There was no stamp, no postmark, only her name and address.  She read the letter:

"Dear Ruth:

"I'm going to be in your neighborhood Saturday afternoon and I'd like to stop by for a visit.

"Love Always,


Her hands were shaking as she placed the letter on the table.  "Why would the Lord want to visit me?  I'm nobody special.  I don't have anything to offer."

With that thought, Ruth remembered her empty kitchen cabinets.  "Oh my goodness, I really don't have anything to offer.  I'll have to run down to the store and buy something for dinner."  She reached for her purse and counted out its contents.  Five dollars and forty cents.  "Well, I can get some bread and cold cuts, at least."

She threw on her coat and hurried out the door.

A loaf of French bread, a half-pound of sliced turkey, and a carton of milk... leaving Ruth with grand total twelve cents to last her until Monday.

Nonetheless, she felt good as she headed home, her meager offerings tucked under her arm.

"Hey lady, can you help us, lady?"

Ruth had been so absorbed in her dinner plans, she hadn't even noticed two figures huddled in the alleyway.  A man and a woman, both of them dressed in little more than rags.

"Look lady, I ain't got a job, ya know, and my wife and I have been living out here on the street, and, well, now it's getting cold and we're getting kinda hungry and, well, if you could help us.  Lady, we'd really appreciate it."

Ruth looked at both of them.

They were dirty, they smelled bad and frankly, she was certain that they could get some kind of work if they really wanted to.

"Sir, I'd like to help you, but I'm a poor woman myself.  All I have is a few cold cuts and some bread, and I'm having an important guest for dinner tonight and I was planning on serving that to Him."

"Yeah, well, okay lady, I understand.  Thanks anyway."

The man put his arm around the woman's shoulders, turned and headed back into the alley.

As she watched them leave, Ruth felt a familiar twinge in her heart.

"Sir, wait!"  The couple stopped and turned as she ran down the alley after them.  "Look, why don't you take this food?  I'll figure out something else to serve my guest."

She handed the man her grocery bag.

"Thank you lady.  Thank you very much!"

"Yes, thank you!"  It was the man's wife, and Ruth could see now that she was shivering.  "You know, I've got another coat at home.  Here, why don't you take this one."  Ruth unbuttoned her jacket and slipped it over the woman's shoulders.  Then smiling, she turned and walked back to the street... without her coat and with nothing to serve her guest.

"Thank you lady! Thank you very much!"

Ruth was chilled by the time she reached her front door, and worried too.  The Lord was coming to visit and she didn't have anything to offer Him.

She fumbled through her purse for the door key.  But as she did, she noticed another envelope in her mailbox.

"That's odd.  The mailman doesn't usually come twice in one day."  She took the envelope out of the box and opened it.

"Dear Ruth:

"It was so good to see you again.  Thank you for the lovely meal.  And thank you, too, for the beautiful coat.

"Love Always,


The air was still cold, but even without her coat, Ruth no longer noticed.

Rules for Being Human
From: Kathy Gallagher
Date: 4 Mar 2003

1. You will receive a body.  You may like it, or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period this time around.

2. You will learn lessons.  You are enrolled in a full-time informal school called life.  Each day in this school you will have the opportunity to learn lessons.  You may like the lessons, or think them irrelevant or stupid.

3. There are no mistakes, only lessons.  Growth is a process of trial and error and experimentation.  The "failed" experiments are as much a part of the process as the experiment that ultimately "works".

4. A lesson is repeated until learned.  A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it.  When you have learned it, you can then go on to the next lesson.

5. Learning lessons does not end.  There is no part of life that does not contain lessons.  If you are alive, there are lessons to be learned.

6. "There" is no better place than "here".  When your "there" has become a "here", you will simply obtain another "there" that will again, look better than "here".

7. Others are merely mirrors of you.  You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.

8. What you make of your life is up to you.  You have all the tools and resources you need.  What you do with them is up to you.  The choice is yours.

9. Your answers lie inside you.  The answers to life's questions lie inside you.  All you need to do is look, listen, and trust.

10. You will forget all of this.

Shipwrecked With Six Women
From: Mr Funny Bone International
Date: 4 Mar 2003

Phillip fancied himself quite a ladies man, so when his cruise ship went down in a storm and he found himself stranded on a desert island with six women, he couldn't believe his good fortune.  They quickly agreed that each woman would have one night a week with the only man.

Phillip threw himself into the arrangement with gusto, working even on his day off, but as the weeks stretched into months, he found himself looking forward to that day of rest more and more eagerly.

One afternoon he was sitting on the beach and wishing for some more men to share his duties, when he caught sight of a man waving from a life raft that was bobbing on the waves.  Phillip swam out, pulled the raft to shore, and did a little jig of happiness.  "You can't believe how happy I am to see you," he cried.

The new fellow eyed him up and down and cooed, "You're a sight for sore eyes, too, you gorgeous thing!"

"Crap!," sighed Phillip, "there go my Sundays."

Riding a Dead Horse
From: Mr Funny Bone International
Date: 5 Mar 2003

The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians, passed on from one generation to the next, says that when you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount.

But in modern business (and education and government), because heavy investment factors are taken into consideration, other strategies are often tried with dead horses, including the following:

1. Buying a stronger whip.

2. Changing riders.

3. Threatening the horse with termination.

4. Appointing a committee to study the horse.

5. Arranging to visit other sites to see how they ride dead horses.

6. Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be included.

7. Reclassifying the dead horse as "living-impaired".

8. Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse.

9. Harnessing several dead horses together to increase speed.

10. Providing additional funding and/or training to increase the dead horse's performance.

11. Doing a productivity study to see if lighter riders would improve the dead horse's performance.

12. Declaring that the dead horse carries lower overhead and therefore contributes more to the bottom line than some other horses.

13. Rewriting the expected performance requirements for all horses.

14. Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position.

Rules for Depression
From: Cerberus - The Dog Of Hell
Date: 5 Mar 2003

Try to be PERFECT.

Be very critical of any mistakes or failures you might make.

Do what you SHOULD do, even if it is not what you want to do.

Always do what you are supposed to be doing.

Make other persons happy at any cost to yourself.

Work hard at pleasing your most severe critic.

Know that if you don't please, the other person will reject or leave you.

Never make a mistake.

Live alone and have few friends.

Keep your failures, mistakes, errors and faults to yourself.  Never let anyone know of them, because you never want anyone to know how bad you really are.  Keep your secrets personal.

FEAR the future, because you know it will turn out bad.

WORRY about how bad it will be.

With such an awful future, try to be in control as much as possible.  Knowing you are not in self control, seek to control other and events.

Knowing how you really are inside, your secret self, never listen to or accept praise or compliments.  They will just make you big headed and egotistical.

Recognize the true importance of a negative interpretation and be certain to always emphasize the negative, and generalize it to yourself whenever possible.

Avoid any awareness of how your negativeness affects others.  You have an important role to fulfill for them, and they need your realistic balance.

Y VUELVO A PREGUNTAR: ¿No sería éste un mundo mejor si TODOS siguiéramos las reglas que nos permiten ser humanos, en lugar de las que nos llevan a la depresión?  A ver, ¿quién se anima?

So Richard asked Peter, "Why do you get all the girls and I get nothing?"

Peter said, "Take a potato and tuck it in your swimming trunks.  It drives the women wild!"

So, Richard stuffed a potato in his suit and paraded up and down the beach.  Many hours later, he still had no woman.  Richard went to see Peter again and said, "I've tried it and it doesn't work!"

Peter looked at Richard and said, "Have you tried putting the potato in the front?"

Well, shit...
From: Rodney
Date: 6 Mar 2003

Shit may just be the most powerful word in the English language.

You can be shit faced, shit out of luck, or have shit for brains.  With a little effort, you can get your shit together, find a place for your shit or decide to shit or get off the pot.  You can smoke shit, buy shit, sell shit, lose shit, find shit, forget shit, and tell others to eat shit and die.  Some people know their shit while others can't tell the difference between shit and shineola.  There are lucky shits, dumb shits, crazy shits, and sweet shits.  There is bull shit, horse shit and chicken shit.  You can throw shit, sling shit, catch shit, shoot shit, or duck when shit hits the fan.  You can give shit or serve shit on a shingle.  You can find yourself in deep shit or be happier than a pig in shit.  Some days are colder than shit, some days are hotter than shit, and some days are just plain shitty.  Some music sounds like shit, things can look like shit, and there are times when you feel like shit.  You can have too much shit, not enough shit, the right shit, the wrong shit, a lot of weird shit.  You can carry shit, have a mountain of shit, or find yourself up a shit creek without a paddle.  Sometimes everything you touch turns to shit, and other times you swim in a lake of shit and come out smelling like a rose.

When you stop to consider all the facts, it's the basic building block of creation.  And remember, once you know your shit, you don't need to know anything else!

Triangular Plot For Sale

COMENTARIO: Lo siguiente es algo que uno no encontraría usualmente en los anuncios clasificados de "El Nuevo Día":

A sweet girl of Seventeen is very eager to offer a small lovely triangular plot for sale.  The plot is centrally located on the slope of the lower area but not observed or explored by anybody till date.

For the last Seventeen years, the plot being tenderly cared and looked after by the girl herself.  The plot is fertile and can bear best result even in the first planting.  For the last four years the plot is covered with shiny black curly grass which is very tender to touch.  No machine has yet been used for trimming the grass which has now covered the wild area.

Another thing which adds beauty of the plot is the fantastic pond hidden under it.

Offers are immediately invited from young men with firm and energetic capital which can be put in easily and this must give out flowing white liquid capital.

The young man should be strong enough to plough in hard with his own tool.  Although initially it will be hard and a bit difficult to cut open the gate seal.  Once the capital is put in the entrance, he will not repent and will be delighted to have ventured into the site.

Since the neighbors are waiting for an opportunity to pounce on this marvelous plot, make haste to be first to enter into the site.

Yet another fact to be disclosed regarding the site is that the double hills on the top of the said plot are already captured by the local students.  Anyhow, they are not permitted to go down.  Offers for lease or retail will not be accepted.

With the cuts in defense spending, the army had to go without rifles and machine guns.  The platoon sergeant gave the men sticks and told them they were rifles and if you tied two sticks together it became a machine gun.  When the next war games came, up he told the men, "Just point the stick at the enemy and say 'bangetty bang bang' and they fall over dead. If there are a group of men, point your two sticks at them and say 'ratta tat tat' and they fall over dead."

Private Murphy lay in ambush and when the enemy came by he pointed his stick, shouted "bangetty bang bang" or "ratta tat tat," and they all fell over dead.  A whole squad of the enemy came marching down the trail and he jumped out and shouted "ratta tat tat, ratta tat tat," but they kept on coming.  They knocked him down, marched over him and continued down the trail.

Battered and bruised he pulled himself up on one elbow and watched them march away.  The last man in the squad looked back at Murphy, smiled and said, "Tanketty tank tank, tanketty tank tank."

The Judge sighed and said, "Well, Miss, I would have thought you'd done enough research' by now.  My computer sez you have two prior convictions.  Thirty days and $250 fine."

He then turned to the second lady and requested her to testify.  The woman began crying softly and said, "Judge, I am just a housewife out getting a pack of cigarettes for my husband.  I have no idea why I was arrested."

This time, the Judge shook his head and said, "Well, young lady, the officer tells me that he saw you hand a stack of bills along with the cigarettes to your 'husband' in his new Cadillac.  Thirty days and $250 fine."

He turned to the last of the trio and asked her occupation.

The woman said simply, "I'm a hooker."

Refreshed at her honesty, the Judge laughed and said, "How's business?"

She sneered and replied, "Terrible Judge, with all these students and housewives around, I can't turn a single trick."

Real World

Things You Would Never Know Without the Movies:

It is always possible to park directly outside any building you are visiting.

A detective can only solve a case once he has been suspended from duty.

If you decide to start dancing in the street, everyone you bump into will know all the steps.

Most laptop computers are powerful enough to override the communication systems of any invading alien civilization.

It does not matter if you are heavily outnumbered in a fight involving martial arts—your enemies will wait patiently to attack you one by one by dancing around in a threatening manner until you have knocked out their predecessors.

When a person is knocked unconscious by a blow to the head, they will never suffer a concussion or brain damage.

No one involved in a car chase, hijacking, explosion, volcanic eruption or alien invasion will ever go into shock.

Police Departments give their officers personality tests to make sure they are deliberately assigned a partner who is their total opposite.

When they are alone, all foreigners prefer to speak English to each other.

You can always find a chainsaw when you need one.

Any lock can be picked by a credit card or a paper clip in seconds, unless it's the door to a burning building with a child trapped inside.

An electric fence, powerful enough to kill a dinosaur will cause no lasting damage to an eight year old child.

Television news bulletins usually contain a story that affects you personally at that precise moment you turn the television on.

A grandmother overheard her 5-year-old granddaughter playing "wedding."  The wedding vows went like this:

Women Drivers

Date: 14 Mar 2003

My name is Bob.  Driving to my office this morning on New Mexico Interstate 40 near Central & Tramway, I looked over my shoulder to the left and there was a woman in a brand new Corvette, with her face up next to the rear view mirror putting on her eye makeup.

I looked away for a few seconds, and when I looked back, there she was halfway over in my lane, still working on her eye liner.

It scared me so bad I dropped my electric shaver, which knocked the Krispy Kreme out of my other hand.  In all the confusion of trying to straighten out the car with my knees against the steering wheel, it knocked my cell phone away from my ear which fell into my Starbucks coffee between my legs, splashed and burned BIG BOB and the TWINS, ruined the phone and disconnected an important call.

Melvin was experiencing chronic infections so he took his urologist's advice and entered the hospital for a routine circumcision.  When he came to, he was perturbed to see a large group of doctors standing around his hospital bed.

"What's up doc?," Melvin asked nervously.

"Uh, well... there's been a bit of a mix-up," admitted his surgeon.  "I'm afraid that instead of a circumcision, we performed a sex-change operation on you.  You now have a very nice vagina instead of a penis."

"What!," gasped Melvin.  "You mean I'll never experience another erection?"

"Oh, I'm sure you will, Melvin" reassured the doctor, "only it'll be somebody else's."

COMENTARIO: He aquí lo que yo llamo una muestra de amor eterno...

Red roses were her favorites,
her name was also Rose.
And every year her husband sent them,
tied with pretty bows.

The year he died,
the roses were delivered to her door.
The card said, "Be my Valentine,"
like all the years before.

Each year he sent her roses,
and the note would always say,
"I love you even more this year,
than last year on this day.

My love for you will always grow,
with every passing year."
She knew this was the last time
that the roses would appear.

She thought, he ordered roses
in advance before this day.
Her loving husband did not know,
that he would pass away.

He always liked to do things early,
way before the time.
Then, if he got too busy,
everything would work out fine.

She trimmed the stems,
and placed them in a very special vase.
Then, sat the vase
beside the portrait of his smiling face.

She would sit for hours,
in her husband's favorite chair.
While staring at his picture,
and the roses sitting there.

A year went by,
and it was hard to live without her mate.
With loneliness and solitude,
that had become her fate.

Then, the very hour,
as on Valentines before,
The doorbell rang, and there were roses,
sitting by her door.

She brought the roses in,
and then just looked at them in shock.
Then, went to get the telephone,
to call the florist shop.

The owner answered, and she asked him,
if he would explain,
Why would someone do this to her,
causing her such pain?

"I know your husband passed away,
more than a year ago,"
The owner said, "I knew you'd call,
and you would want to know.

"The flowers you received today,
were paid for in advance.
Your husband always planned ahead,
he left nothing to chance.

"There is a standing order,
that I have on file down here,
And he has paid, well in advance,
you'll get them every year.

"There also is another thing,
that I think you should know,
He wrote a special little card...
he did this years ago.

"Then, should ever I find out
that he's no longer here,
That's the card... that should be sent,
to you the following year."

She thanked him and hung up the phone,
her tears now flowing hard.
Her fingers shaking,
as she slowly reached to get the card.

Inside the card, she saw
that he had written her a note.
Then, as she stared in total silence,
this is what he wrote...

"Hello my love, I know it's been a year
since I've been dead and gone,
I hope it hasn't been too hard
for you to overcome.

"I know it must be lonely,
and the pain is very real.
Or if it was the other way,
I know how I would feel.

"The love we shared made everything
so beautiful in life.
I loved you more than words can say,
you were the perfect wife.

"You were my friend and lover,
you fulfilled my every need.
I know it's only been a year,
but please try not to grieve.

"I want you to be happy,
even when you shed your tears.
That is why the roses will
be sent to you for years.

"When you get these roses,
think of all the happiness,
That we had together,
and how both of us were blessed.

"I have always loved you
and I know I always will.
But, my love, you must go on,
you have some living still.

"Please... try to find happiness,
while living out your days.
I know it is not easy,
but I hope you find some ways.

"The roses will come every year,
and they will only stop,
When your door's not answered,
when the florist stops to knock.

"He will come five times that day,
in case you have gone out.
But after his last visit,
he will know without a doubt,

"To take the roses to the place,
where I've instructed him.
And place the roses where we are,
together once again."

Sometimes in life, you find a special friend;
Someone who changes your life just by being part of it.
Someone who makes you laugh until you can't stop;
Someone who makes you believe that there really is good in the world.
Someone who convinces you that there really is an unlocked door just waiting for you to open it.
This is Forever Friendship.

This is the sacred RED ROSE.  You MUST pass this rose on to at least 5 people within the hour of receiving this rose.  After you do, make a wish.  If you have passed it on, your wish will come true and love will come your way shortly.  If not your life will stay the same as it has always been.  (No Threats).  Just be nice & pass it on....

May we all be loved so much.

The Bully

As most young, weak and smart kids are, Ken was picked on constantly by the bullies in school.  They stole his lunch, they beat him up and just downright made his life miserable.  It took him a couple of weeks to find a way to get back at these bullies, and when he found out what would get them back, he went all out.

He was on the bus where he normally gets his lunch stolen when he brought out a bottle that had what looked like small brown balls in it.  He then, making sure no one was looking, secretly took from his pocket some milk duds and started popping them in his mouth as obvious to the rest of the kids as possible making "yum yum" noises.

The bully without asking snatched the jar from Ken's hand and asked, "What's in the bottle that you are making such a big deal of?"

"Well, they're smart pills."

"Smart pills?," the bully asked.  Then opened the jar and popped a couple of the foreign brown balls in his mouth.

"Pweeuuweppblahhh!!," he reacted.  "What is this stuff?  It tastes like rabbit turds!!"

"See, you're getting smarter already."

Two Mischievous Boys

Date: 17 Mar 2003

A couple had two little boys ages 8 and 10, who were excessively mischievous.  They were always getting into trouble and their parents knew that if any mischief occurred in their town, their sons would get the blame.

The boys' mother heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys.  The clergyman agreed, and asked to see them individually.  So, the mother sent her 8-year-old first, in the morning, with the older boy to see the clergyman in the afternoon.

The clergyman, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, "Where is God?"

They boy's mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there with his mouth hanging open.  The clergyman repeated the question, "Where is God?"  Again, the boy made no attempt to answer.  So the clergyman raised his voice some more and shook his finger in the boy's face and bello"Where is God!?"

The boy screamed and bolted from the room.  He ran directly home and dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him.  When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, "What happened?"

The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, "We are in big trouble this time!  God is missing and they think we did it!"

The Confessional
From: Rowland Croucher

A parish priest was being honored at a dinner on the twenty-fifth anniversary of his arrival in that parish.  A leading local politician, who was a member of the congregation, was chosen to make the presentation and give a little speech at the dinner, but he was delayed in traffic, so the priest decided to say his own few words while they waited.

"You will understand," he said, "the seal of the confessional, can never be broken.  However, I got my first impressions of the parish from the first confession I heard here.  I can only hint vaguely about this, but when I came here twenty-five years ago I thought I had been assigned to a terrible place.  The very first chap who entered my confessional told me how he had stolen a television set, and when stopped by the police, had almost murdered the officer.  Further, he told me he had embezzled money from his place of business and had an affair with his boss's wife.  I was appalled.  But as the days went on I knew that my people were not all like that, and I had, indeed come to, a fine parish full of understanding and loving people."

Just as the priest finished his talk, the politician arrived full of apologies at being late.  He immediately began to make the presentation and give his talk.

"I'll never forget the first day our parish priest arrived in this parish," said the politician.  "In fact, I had the honor of being the first one to go to him in confession."

After some delightful minutes of cool swimming, a pair of old ladies walked onto the shore in his direction.  He panicked, got out of the water and grabbed a bucket lying in the sand nearby.  He held the bucket in front of his private parts and sighed with relief.

The ladies got nearby and looked at him.  He felt awkward and wanted to move.  Then one of the ladies said: "You know, I have a special gift, I can read minds."

After she ordered her drink she turned to the cowboy and asked him, "Are you a real cowboy?"

To which he replied, "Well, I have spent my whole life on the ranch, herding cows, breaking horses, mending fences, I guess I am."

After a short while he asked her what she was.  She replied, "I've never been on a ranch so I'm not a cowboy, but I am a lesbian.  I spend my whole day thinking about women.  As soon as I get up in the morning I think of women.  When I eat, shower, watch TV... everything seems to make me think of women."

A short while later she left and the cowboy ordered another drink.

There were three young priests about to take their final vows.  The last test that they had to pass was the celibacy test.  For this, all three had to strip naked and tie a little bell—around their penis.

A belly dancer entered the room, and started slinking around the first priest...


The chief priest said, "Oh, Patrick, I'm disappointed, you've failed.  Go and have a shower."

The belly dancer had stripped as far as her last veil for the second guy when the chief priest heard,


"Joseph, I'm very disappointed.  You can't resist the temptation of a woman.  Go for a shower."

The belly dancer started dancing totally naked now around the last priest.  She did everything erotic she could think of... but no bell rang!

"John, I'm delighted.  You've passed!  You can resist the temptation of women.  Now, go relax and take a shower with Patrick and Joseph".

Some years ago, the famous San Diego Zoo opened a second, larger branch called the San Diego Wild Animal Park.  The Park is built around an enormous open-field enclosure where the animals roam free.  To see the animals, visitors ride on a monorail called the Wgasa Bush Line which circles the enclosure.  Here's the true story of how the Wgasa Bush Line got its name.

They wanted to give the monorail a jazzy, African sounding name.  So they sent out a memo to a bunch of zoo staffers saying, "What shall we call the monorail at the Wild Animal Park?"  One of the memos came back with "WGASA" written on the bottom.  The planners loved it and the rest is history.

What the planners didn't know was that the zoo staffer had not intended to suggest a name.  He was using an acronym which was popular at the time.  It stood for "Who Gives A Shit Anyhow?"

The Bugged Room
From: Mister Funny Bone International
Date: 25 Mar 2003

A honeymoon couple is in the Watergate Hotel in Washington.  The bride is concerned, and asks, "What if the place is still bugged?"

The groom says, "I'll look for a bug."  He looks behind the drapes, behind the pictures, under the rug.  Finally, he says, "AHA!"  Under the rug was a disc with four screws.  He gets his Swiss army knife, unscrews the screws, throws them and the disc out the window.

The next morning, the hotel manager asks the newlyweds, "How was your room?  How was the service?  How was your stay at the Watergate Hotel?"

The groom says, "Why are you asking me all of these questions?"

The hotel manager says, "Well, the couple in the room UNDER you complained that the chandelier fell on them."

A man was walking one day, when he came to this big house in a nice neighborhood.  Suddenly he realized there was a couple making love out on the lawn.  Then he noticed another couple over behind a tree.  Then another couple behind some bushes by the house.

He walked up to the door of the house and knocked.  A well dressed woman answered the door, and the man asked what kind of a place this was.  "This is a brothel," replied the madam.

"Well, what's all this out on the lawn?," queried the man.

"Oh, we're having a yard sale today."

Late one night a woman was walking home when a man grabbed her and dragged her into the bushes.

"Help me!  Help me!," she screamed.  "I'm being robbed!"

"You ain't being robbed!," her attacker interrupted.  "You're being screwed!"

The woman looked down at her attacker as he unzipped his jeans.  "If you're screwing me with that," she fumed, "I am being robbed!"

Privacy in Cheap Housing

Date: Fri, 28 Mar 2003

A young married couple lived in a cheap housing complex.

Their chief complaint was that the walls were paper-thin and that they had no privacy.  This was painfully obvious when one morning the husband was upstairs and the wife was downstairs on the telephone.  She was interrupted by the doorbell and went to greet her neighbour.

"Give this to your husband," he said thrusting a roll of toilet paper into her hands.  "He's been yelling for it for 15 minutes!"

"Well," she explained, "he needs to be good looking, polite, humorous, sporty, knowledgeable, good at singing and dancing.  Willing to accompany me the whole day at home during my leisure hours if I don't go out.  And I want him to tell me interesting stories when I need companion for conversation, but to be silent when I want to rest."

The matchmaker listened carefully.  Then he smiled and said, "I understand exactly what you need.  You need a good television!"

Rooster Competition
From: KenFuny
Date: 24 Mar 2003

An old farmer decided it was time to get a new rooster for his hens.  The current rooster was still doing an okay job, but he was getting on in years.  The farmer figured getting a new rooster couldn't hurt anything.  So he buys a young cock from the local rooster emporium, and turns him loose in the barnyard.

Well, the old rooster sees the young one strutting around, and he gets a little worried.  "So, they're trying to replace me," thinks the old rooster.  "I've got to do something about this."

He walks up to the new bird and says, "So you're the new stud in town?  I bet you really think you're hot stuff, don't you?  Well, I'm not ready for the chopping block yet.  I'll bet I'm still the better bird.  And to prove it, I challenge you to a race around that hen house over there.  We'll run around it ten times and whoever finishes first gets to have all the hens for himself."

The young rooster was a proud sort, and he definitely thought he was more than a match for the old guy.  "You're on," said the young rooster.

"And since I know I'm so great, I'll even give you a head start of half a lap.  I'll still win easy," said the young rooster.

The two roosters go over to the hen house to start the race with all the hens gathering around to watch.  The race begins and all the hens start cheering the roosters on.  After the first lap, the old rooster is still maintaining his lead.  After the second lap, the old guy's lead has slipped a little but he's still hanging in there.  Unfortunately the old rooster's lead continues to slip each time around, and by the fifth lap he's just barely in front of the young rooster.

By now the farmer has heard all the commotion.  He runs into the house, gets his shotgun, and runs out to the barnyard figuring a fox or something is after his chickens.  When he gets there, he sees the two roosters running around the hen house, with the old rooster still slightly in the lead.  He immediately takes his shotgun, aims, fires, and blows the young rooster away.

As he walks away slowly, he says to himself, "Damn, that's the third gay rooster I've bought this month."

Mother Lion and Father Lion had gone off hunting, and had told their two children not to wander away.  However, a couple of small gnus wandered by, and the baby lions could not resist the temptation to try out their own hunting skills.  They ran out, chased after the gnus, killed them, and started eating them.  Just as the baby lions were reaching the end of their meal, the parents appeared in the distance.  One of the baby lions turned to the other, and said:

"That is the end of the gnus.  Here again are the head lions."

He wrote:  "I would very much like to bring my dog with me.  He is well-groomed and very well behaved.  Would you be willing to permit me to keep him in my room with me at night?"

An immediate reply came from the hotel owner, who said, "I've been operating this hotel for many years.  In all that time, I've never had a dog steal towels, bedclothes, silverware or pictures off the walls.  I've never had to evict a dog in the middle of the night for being drunk and disorderly.  And I've never had a dog run out on a hotel bill.  Yes, indeed, your dog is welcome at my hotel.  And, if your dog will vouch for you, you're welcome to stay here, too."

Squirrels and Church Attendance
From: Rowland Croucher
Date: 31 Mar 2003

A small town had three churches: Presbyterian, Methodist, and Baptist.  All three had a serious problem with squirrels in the church.  Each church in its own fashion had a meeting to deal with the problem.
The Presbyterians decided that it was predestined that squirrels be in the church and that they would just have to live with them.

The Methodists decided they should deal with the squirrels lovingly in the style of Charles Wesley.  They humanely trapped them and released them in a park at the edge of town.  Within three days they were all back in the church.

The Baptists had the best solution.  They voted the squirrels in as members.  Now they only see them at Christmas and Easter.

Microsoft Announces Operation Red, White and Blue Screen of Death

Microsoft, Military Announce Operation Red, White and Blue Screen of Death

By Brian Briggs

Qatar (Monday, March 31 2003) — A Microsoft spokesman announced today at Central Command in the desert of Qatar, that Microsoft recently helped the allied war effort by donating 100,000 fully licensed copies of Windows 95 to the current Iraqi regime.

Unbeknownst to the Iraqis, this "gift" from Microsoft is part of the psychological warfare and infrastructure destruction campaign of the allied forces, called "Operation Red, White and Blue Screen of Death."

The copies of Windows 95 were standard copies of the software with only one devious change.

Microsoft's VP of Marketing Marie Bixby explained, "All the instability, and bugs that came with the original version are still there, but as part of the psychological operations of the war, we modified the infamous Blue Screen of Death to the more patriotic red, white and blue.  General Protection Fault will be marching all over the Iraqi regime, and he'll be waving Old Glory."

"We have been very careful not to destroy any critical infrastructure in Iraq," said Brigadier General Victor Hanlon.  "But that is about to change.  Windows 95 will destroy the information technology infrastructure of Iraq almost immediately.  Microsoft even modified their license agreement to allow Iraqis to copy the software onto multiple computers without further licensing requirements."

Experts agreed that the Iraqi people will not be able to resist such powerful imagery.  Retired programmer Yvette Keeling said, "Using Windows 95 will be very frustrating for Hussein and his henchmen.  He'll be typing up military orders then BAM, the system will crash and the flag will be flying in his face.  I wouldn't be surprised if he surrendered right then and there."

The Iraqi government was suspicious of the deal, but accepted the donation when Microsoft showed them the powerful land mine removal simulator, Minesweeper.

Ambassadors from France decried the move as a violation of the Geneva Convention and stated that, "no regime or people, no matter how evil, should be subjected to such tortures."

Microsoft did not receive payment from the US government as part of the operation, but does hope to profit by offering upgrades to Windows XP after the war has ended.
