An old farmer in Georgia had owned a large farm for

several years. He had a large pond in the back, fixed

up nice; picnic tables, horseshoe courts, basketball

court, etc. 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. As he

neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing

with glee. As he came closer he saw 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 of the pond. One of the women shouted to him,

"We're not coming out until you leave!"   The old man

replied, "I didn't come down here to watch you ladies

swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked."  

"I'm here to feed the alligator."

Moral: Old age and cunning will triumph over youth and enthusiasm every time.


A fisherman carelessly dropped his wallet into

the water and was amazed to see a school of

carp deftly balancing the wallet on their noses

and tossing it from one fish to the other. "Gosh,"

I've ever seen "Carp to carp walleting!"


A man was wandering around a fairground and

he happened to see a fortune-tellers tent. Thinking

it would be good for a laugh, he went inside and

sat down.  "Ah....." said the woman as she

gazed into her crystal ball.  "I see you are the

father of two children."  "That's what you think",

the man laughed. I'm the father of THREE children." 

The woman grinned and said, "That's what YOU think!"


During World War II Richard Wynn, on flight duty

with the 8th Air Force Division in Europe was shot

down and captured by the Germans. After a year

as prisoner of war, he escaped and made his way

back to his bomber group in England. One of his

first acts there was to hunt up the corporal on duty

in the parachute building.  "Corporal," he said, "a

year ago I had occasion to use one of the parachutes

that your men had packed and I want you to know

how delighted I was to find it in perfect working order.

I give you my deepest compliments and appreciation." 

"You know, Lieutenant, funny thing," the corporal

replied.  "In this work we never get any complaints."


A certain band director was standing outside on

a metal ladder during a concert, when a thunderstorm

broke out. Amazingly, he wasn't hit by lightning, but

the music was awful - it seems he just wasn't a very

good conductor.


A college student in a philosophy class was taking

his first examination.  On the paper there was a single

line which simply said: "Is this a question? Discuss."

this is an answer."  The student received an "A" on the exam.


Jerry Garcia died. He wakes up and finds himself on

a stage on which a number of instruments are set up.

A door offstage opens and in walk Jimi Hendrix, Jim

Morrison, Brian Jones, John Lennon, Otis Redding,

and Buddy Holly.  Each musician picks up his favorite

instrument and begins tuning up.  He walks up to Jimi

and says, "Man, so this is what heaven is like."  Jimi

looks at him and says, "Heaven? You think this is

heaven?"  At that moment, Karen Carpenter walks in,

takes her seat behind the drums, and calls out, "Okay

guys, 'Close to You'. One, two,  three, four . . . "


A used car is not always what it's jacked up to be.

A mother and her young son returned from the grocery

store and began putting away the groceries. The boy

opened the box of animal crackers and spread them all

over the table. "What are you doing?" his mother asked.

"The box says you can't eat them if the seal is broken,"

the boy explained. "So I'm looking for the seal. I sure

hope he's okay."

On a country road, a speeder hit and killed a dog. The

dog's owner stood nearby, a gun in his hand.  The

speeder said, "Looks as if I killed your dog." "Sure

does."  "I'm sorry. Was it a  valuable dog?"  "I wouldn't

say that." "Well, suppose I gave you a hundred dollars.

Would that be enough?"  "Well, I don't know."  "Two

hundred dollars. That should do it."  "Sounds good." 

The speeder reached into his pocket and came up

with the money. Pressing it into the man's hand, he

said, "I'm sorry I spoiled your plans to go hunting." 

"I wasn't going hunting. I was heading out to the

woods to shoot that mangy dog."

incision."  The doctor hands him the needle and says, "Suture self."

A man on a camel rode through miles of the sun-drenched

desert searching for some sign of life. His supplies were

running low when his camel died. Now on foot, he desperately

sought refuge from the heat, and, most importantly, a source

for water. Suddenly, he came across a vendor in the middle of

the desert.  "Thank God I found you!" the man cried. "Please

help me. I'm in dire need of some water."  "Well," said the

vendor, "I don't have any water. But would you like to buy

one of these fine ties."  "What am I going to do with a tie?"

the man asked.  "That's what I'm selling sir. If you don't like

it, I can't help you."  The man left the vendor and walked

on for many more miles, praying each minute that he would

find refuge from the scorching sun. His eyes squinted a

bunch of times when he came across a restaurant in the

distance.  Unable to comprehend a restaurant located in

the middle of the desert, he assumed the place was a

mirage, but decided to check it out anyway. As he approached

the door, his mouth opened in amazement, seeing that the

place actually existed.  The doorman stopped him before he

entered. "Excuse me sir," the doorman said, "but you can't

come in here without a tie!"


"Nishiki Okimoto died yesterday. He was one of the primary

engineers who worked on the original VCR. His funeral service

will be at 12:00...12:00...12:00...12:00..."

---Dennis Miller


A minister decided to do something a little different one

Sunday morning. He said "Today, in church, I am going

to say a single word and you are going to help me preach.

"Whatever single word I say, I want you to sing whatever

hymn that comes to your mind. The pastor shouted out, "Cross.. "  

Immediately the congregation started singing in unison, "The

Old Rugged Cross."   The pastor hollered out "Grace." The

congregation began to sing "Amazing Grace, how sweet the

sound." The pastor said "Power." The congregation sang "There

is Power in the Blood.".  The Pastor said "Sex."  The congregation

fell in total silence. Everyone was in shock. They all nervously

began to look around at each other afraid to say anything. Then 

all of a sudden, way from in the back of the church, a little old

87 year old grandmother stood up and began to sing "Precious Memories."


An English professor announced to the class; "There are

two words I don't allow in my class. One is gross and the

other is cool."   From the back of the room a voice called

out, "Yeah? So, what are the words?"


A man complained, "Doc, I've been to three other clinics

and none of them agreed with your diagnosis."  The doctor

calmly replied, "Just wait until the autopsy, then they'll see

that I was right."


When Mozart passed away, he was buried in a churchyard.

A couple days later, the town drunk was walking through

the cemetery and heard some strange noise coming from

the area where Mozart was buried.   Terrified, the drunk ran

and got the town magistrate to come and listen to it.  When

the magistrate arrived, he bent his ear to the grave, listened

for a moment, and said, "Ah, yes, that's Mozart's Ninth

Symphony, being played backwards."  He listened a while

longer, and said, "There's the Eighth Symphony, and it's

backwards, too. Most puzzling."  So the magistrate kept

listening; "There's the Seventh... the Sixth... the Fifth..." 

Suddenly the realization of what was happening dawned

on the magistrate; he stood up and announced to the

crowd that had gathered in the cemetery, "My fellow citizens,

there's nothing to worry about. It's just Mozart decomposing."


Q.  Why did the Amish couple get divorced?

A.  He was driving her buggy.


The poor country pastor was livid when he confronted his

wife with the receipt for a $250 dress she had bought.

"How could you do this!" he demanded.  "I don't know,"

she wailed, "I was standing in the store looking at the

dress. Then I found myself trying it on. It was like the

Devil was whispering to me, 'Gee, you look great in that

dress. You should buy it.'"  "Well," the pastor persisted,

"You know how to deal with him!  Just tell him, "Get behind

me, Satan!" "I did," replied his wife. "He said 'You look

great from here too.'"


Q.  What do you call Mother Teresa now that she is in heaven?

Let's face it -- English is a crazy language. There is no

egg in eggplant nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor

pine in pineapple.  English muffins weren't invented in

England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are

candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are

meat.  We take English for granted. But if we explore

its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly,

boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from

Guinea nor is it a pig.  And why is it that writers write

but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers

don't ham? If the plural of tooth is  teeth, why isn't the

plural of booth beeth? One goose, 2 geese.  So one

moose, 2 meese?  Doesn't it seem crazy that you

can make amends but not one amend, that you

comb through annals of history but not a single annal? 

If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all

but one of them, what do you call it? If teachers taught,

why didn't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats

vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? In what

language do people recite at a play and play at a recital?

Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses

that run and feet that smell? Park on driveways and

drive on parkways?  How can a slim chance and a

fat chance be the same, while a wise man and wise

guy are opposites? How can overlook and oversee

be opposites, while quite a lot and quite a few are

alike?  How can the weather be hot as hell one day

and cold as hell another?  Have you noticed that we

talk about certain things only when they are absent? 

Have you ever seen a horseful carriage or a strapful

gown? Met a sung hero or experienced requited love?

Have you ever run into someone who was combobulated,

gruntled, ruly or peccable? And where are all those

people who ARE spring chickens or who would

ACTUALLY hurt a fly?  You have to marvel at the

unique lunacy of a language in which your house

can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a

form by filling it out and in which an alarm clock

goes off by going on.  English was invented by people,

not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human

race (which, of course, isn't a race at all). That is why,

when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the

lights are out, they are invisible. And why, when I wind

up my watch, I start it, but when I wind up this essay, I end it.


This man goes along to the Patent Office with some of

his new designs. He says to the clerk, "I'd like to register

my new invention. It's a folding bottle."  "OK," says the clerk.

"What do you call it?" "A fottle, replies the inventor." "A fottle? 

That's stupid! Can't you think of something else?"  "I can think

about it. I've got something else though. It's a folding carton."

"And what do you call that?" asks the clerk.  "A farton", replies

the inventor. "That's rude. You can't possibly call it that!"  "In

that case," says the inventor... "You're really going to hate the

name of my folding bucket."


During a recent vacation in Las Vegas, a man went to

see a popular magic show. After one especially amazing

feat, a man from the back of the theater yelled, "How'd

you do that?"  "I could tell you, sir", the magician answered,

"But then I'd have to kill you."  After a short pause, the man

yelled back, "Ok, then... just tell my wife."


Bill and Bob, longtime golfing buddies, were involved in

a match-play contest with the score "all-square" at the

18th tee.  Bill slices his tee shot way left, and the ball

finally stops on the cart path. Meanwhile, Bob smashes

his first shot straight down the middle.  "Oh well," says

Bill, "I should get a free drop from there."  "Heck no,"

says Bob, "We play the ball as it lies."  And so Bill did. 

After dropping his opponent on the middle of the fairway,

Bill took the golf cart to his lie on the concrete path.

Sparks fly from the cart path, as Bill makes a few

aggressive practice swings.  Finally, Bill hits the ball

off the cart path, leaving a miraculous shot only 3 feet

from the pin.  As the two meet in the fairway, Bob

comments, "That was a great shot...what club did

you use?"  "Your 6 iron," says Bill.


Baloney: Where some hemlines fall

Burglarize: What a thief sees you with.

Q.  How do turtles communicate with each other?

A.  With shell-phones


An African chieftain flew to the United States to visit the

president. When he arrived at the airport, a host of newsmen

and television cameramen met him. One of the reporters

asked the chief if he had a comfortable flight. The chief

made a series of weird noises: "Screech, scratch, honk,

buzz, whistle, z-z-z-z..." Then he added in perfect English,

"Yes, I had a very nice flight."  Another reporter asked,

"Chief, do you plan to visit the Washington Monument

while you're in the area?" The chief made the same

noises: "Screech, scratch, honk, buzz, whistle, z-z-z-z..."

Then he said, "Yes, and I also plan to visit the White House

and the Capitol Building." "Where did you learn to speak

such flawless English?" asked the next reporter. The chief

replied, "Screech, scratch, honk, buzz, whistle, z-z-z-z...

From the short-wave radio."


On the first 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 sixty years."  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 second 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 third day God created the monkey. God said,

"Entertain people, do monkey tricks, make them laugh.

I'll give you a twenty-year life span."  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 again.  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 dog gave back and the ten the monkey gave back,

that makes eighty, okay?"  "Okay," said God, "You've

got a deal." So that is why the first twenty years we eat,

sleep, play, and enjoy ourselves; for the next forty years

we slave in the sun to support our family; for the next ten

years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren;

and for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and

bark at everyone. Life has now been explained.

A pig walked into a bar and asked, "Do you serve root beer?" 

The bartender said he did.  "I'd like one, please," the pig said. 

After the pig had finished, he asked to use the rest room.  After

the pig left, another pig came in and asked for two root beers.

This pig then asked for the rest room just like the first one had.

Two more pigs came in. One ordered three root beers and the

other four. They, too, used the rest room.  When a fifth pig came

in, the bartender thought he'd get cute.  "Let me guess, you

want five root beers."  The pig was shocked. "Why, yes. Yes, I

would."  When he was done, he started to walk out. The bartender

was confused. "Don't you want to use the rest room like the other

four pigs did?"  "No, I'm the fifth little piggy. I go wee-wee-wee all

the way home."

A duck walks into a bar and orders a beer and a sandwich. 

The bartender looks at him and says, "But you're a duck." 

"I see your eyes are working," replies the duck. "And you

talk!"  exclaims the bartender.  "I see your ears are working,"

says the duck, "Now can I have my beer and my sandwich,

please?"  "Certainly," says the bartender, "sorry about that,

it's just we don't get many ducks in this pub. What are you

doing round this way?"  "I'm working on the building site

across the road," explains the duck.  So the duck drinks

his beer, eats his sandwich, pays and leaves. This continues

for 2 weeks. Then one day the circus comes to town.

The ringleader of the circus comes into the pub and the

bartender tells him about the incredible talking duck.  "

Marvelous!" says the ringleader, "get him to come see

me."  So the next day, the duck comes into the pub.

The bartender says, "Hey, Mr. Duck, I lined you up with

a top job paying really good money!"  "Yeah?" says the

duck, "Sounds great, where is it?" "At the circus" says

the bartender.  "The circus?" the duck asks. "That's right,"

replies the bartender.  "The circus? That place with the big

tent? With all the animals? With the big canvas roof with

the hole in the middle?" asks the duck.  "That's right!"

says the bartender.  The duck looks confused and asks:

"What the heck do they want with a plasterer?"


A rabbi, a minister, and a priest were playing poker when

the police raided the game. Turning to the priest, the lead

police officer said, "Father Murphy, were you gambling?"

Turning his eyes to heaven, the priest whispered, "Lord,

forgive me for what I am about to do." To the police officer,

he then said, "No, officer; I was not gambling."  The officer

then asked the minister, "Pastor Johnson, were you gambling?" 

Again, after an appeal to heaven, the minister replied, "No,

officer; I was not gambling." Turning to the rabbi, the officer

again asked, "Rabbi Goldstein, were you gambling?"  Shrugging

his shoulders, the rabbi replied, "With whom?"


A customer wanted to ask his attractive waitress for a date, but

couldn't get her attention. When he was able to catch her eye,

she quickly looked away. Finally he followed her into the kitchen

and blurted out his invitation. To his amazement, she readily consented.

He said, "Why have you been avoiding me all this time? You wouldn't

even make eye contact."  "Oh," said the waitress, "I thought you

wanted more coffee."


One evening a man was very impressed with the meat entree his wife

had served. "What did you marinate this in?" he asked.   His wife

immediately went into a long explanation about how much she loves

him and how life wouldn't be the same without him, etc. Eventually,

his puzzled expression made her interrupt her answer with a question

of her own, "What did you ask me?" She chuckled at his answer

and explained, "I thought you asked me if I would marry you again!"

As she left the room, he called out, "Well, would you marry me again?"

Without hesitation, she said, "Vinegar and barbecue sauce."


It was the late 1600s in Philadelphia when Quakers were routinely

arrested for civil disobedience. At the time, William Penn's mother

and two of her sisters owned a successful Quaker business, a

bakery. The women increased the price of their pies, specifically

donating the money to support the legal expenses of their Quaker

friends. Many in the town objected to paying the price increase on

political grounds, and there were extensive and public debates

about the pie rates of Penn's aunts.


Q.  Why do elephants have trunks?

A.  Because they would look really silly with glove compartments


When the bookie asked the veteran horse player the secret

of his consistent success, the gambler provided a simple

explanation. "I'm just lucky, I guess. I turn to the racing page,

close my eyes and stick a pin in it," he said.  "Lucky!" the

bookie exclaimed in disbelief. "But how did you pick this

four-horse combination?"  "Well," the gambler admitted,

"I didn't have a pin, so I used a fork."


Q.  What do you get when you cross an owl with a goat?

Q.  Do you know why redneck murder mysteries are so hard to solve?

A.  The DNA is all the same and there are no dental records.


I bought a circus and got a fair deal. I ran into problems right away:

the truck driver refused to tow the lion; the lion ate a clown but it

tasted funny; and there was a huge fire and the heat was in tents. 

The human cannonball got fired. It was hard to find another of the

same caliber.


Q. How do you tell if you're in a redneck Amish neighborhood?

A. By the dead horses on cinder blocks in the front yard.


Q.  What is worse than raining cats and dogs?

A.  Hailing taxicabs
