Clarence, Billy Bob and Bubba were traveling through
Europe on military leave when they came across a
strange old town, protected by an ancient stone wall.
They were getting hungry, and decided to stop and look
for something to eat. A guard dressed in heavy leather and
chain mail met them at the gate. "You may enter," said the
guard, "But we have one rule here: Never step on a duck.
If you step on a duck, you will be punished!" Clarence,
Billy Bob, and Bubba thought this was strange, but since
they were hungry they passed through the gate, and found
that there were ducks everywhere! It was impossible to
keep from stepping on one!  It was only a matter of time
when Clarence accidentally stepped on a duck. Suddenly, a
troop of guards stormed down the street and carried him away
in chains! He was taken to prison and thrown into a cell with the
meanest, ugliest woman you ever saw! Billy Bob and Bubba saw
this, and were extremely careful not to step on any ducks, but
sure enough, it was only a few minutes until Billy Bob stepped
on one! Billy Bob was immediately chained to a woman even
uglier than the first one; she was also fat, and dirty, and
nagged constantly!  By this time Bubba was afraid to even
take a step! It took him a half an hour just to walk a single block.
Suddenly, for no reason, a guard ran up to Bubba and
chained him to the most beautiful woman he had ever
seen! She was tall, with blue eyes and long blonde
hair, and wore a stunning red dress, all decked out in
diamonds and gold! She must have been a princess! Bubba
couldn't believe his eyes! "What did I ever do to deserve this?"
asked Bubba. "I don't know what you did," said the princess, "But I
stepped on a duck!"

An unpolished looking gentleman walks into a fancy French restaurant.
The maitre d, wanting to get rid of a potential troublemaker says, "Sir,
you can't come in here without a tie." The guy argues, but the maitre d
is firm. So the guy goes out to his car, can't find a tie, but locates a
pair of jumper cables in the trunk. He wraps them around his neck
and walks back into the restaurant. The maitre d looks at him and
reluctantly says, "OK, you can come in, but don't start anything."

A poor vagabond, traveling a country road in England, tired and hungry,

came to a roadside Inn with a sign reading: "George and the Dragon."

He knocked.  The Innkeeper's wife stuck her head out a window. "Could ye

spare some victuals?" he asked. The woman glanced at his shabby

clothes and obviously poor condition. "No!" she said rather sternly.

"Could I have a pint of ale?" "No!" she said again.  "Could I at least sleep in your stable?"

"No!" by this time she was fairly shouting.  The vagabond said, "Might

I please...?" "What now?" the woman interrupted impatiently.

"D'ye suppose," he asked, "I might have a word with George?"

The little girl was telling her parents about a trip to the zoo with her

A Brit, a Frenchman and a Russian are viewing a painting of Adam

and Eve frolicking in the Garden of Eden.  "Look at their reserve, their

calm," muses the Brit. "They must be British." "Nonsense," the

Frenchman disagrees. "They're naked, and so beautiful.  Clearly,

they are French."  "No clothes, no shelter," the Russian points out, 

"they have only an apple to eat, and they're being told this is

paradise. They are definitely Russian!"

A golfer and his buddies where playing a big round of golf for $200. 

At the eighteenth green the golfer had a ten foot putt to win the round,

and the $200.  As he was lining up his putt, a funeral procession started

to pass by.  The golfer set down his putter, took his hat off, placed it over

his chest, and began to wait for the funeral procession to pass.  After it

passed, he picked up his putter and returned to lining up his putt.

One of his buddies said, "That was the most touching thing I have ever seen.

I can't believe you stopped playing, possibly losing your concentration, to

pay your respects."  "Well, after all,"said his buddy,  "we WERE married for 25 years!"

A young woman wasn't feeling well, and asked one of 

her co-workers to recommend a physician. "I know a 

great one in the city, but he is very expensive. Five 

hundred dollars for the first visit, and one hundred 

dollars for each one after that." The woman went to 

the doctor's office and, trying to save a little money, 

cheerily announced. "I'm back!"  Not fooled for a 

second, the doctor quickly examined her and said, 

"Very good, just continue the treatment I prescribed 

on your last visit."

A man is hauled into court and is being sued by a 

woman for defamation of character.  She charged 

that he had called her a pig. The man was found 

guilty and fined.  After the trial he asked the judge, 

Does this mean that I cannot call Mrs. Johnson a 

pig?"  The judge said that was true.  "Does this 

mean I cannot call a pig, 'Mrs. Johnson'?" the 

man asked.  The judge replied that he could 

indeed call a pig 'Mrs. Johnson' with no fear of 

legal action.  The man looked directly at Mrs. 

Johnson and said..."Good afternoon, Mrs. Johnson!"

A Stock Report...

Helium was up. Feathers were down. Paper was 

stationary.  Knives were up sharply. Pencils lost 

a few points. Hiking equipment was trailing. 

Elevators rose, while escalators continued a 

slow decline. Light switches were off. Mining 

equipment hit rock bottom. Diapers remained 

unchanged. Shipping lines stayed at an even 

keel. Balloon prices were inflated. And batteries 

exploded in an attempt to recharge the market.

A husband and wife had a human cannonball act 

in the circus. One day the wife ran off with the lion 

tamer. The husband was extremely dejected. The 

strong man asked him what he was going to do. 

The husband answered, "This is a disaster. I don't 

know where I'm going to find another woman of 

her caliber."

An attractive young girl, chaperoned by an ugly old crone, entered

the doctor's office. "We have come for an examination" said the
young girl. "Alright," said the doctor. "Go behind that curtain and
take your clothes off." "No, not me" said the girl. "it's my old aunt
here." "Very well," said the doctor. "Madam, stick out your tongue."

A.  They wound up in a tie.

A married couple went to the hospital to have their baby delivered.

Upon arrival the doctor said that he had invented a machine that
would transfer a portion of the labor pain to the father. He asked
if they were willing to try it out. They were both very much in favor
of it. The doctor set the knob at 10% for starters, explaining that
even 10% was probably more pain than the father had ever
experienced before. But as the labor progressed, the husband felt
fine, so he asked the doctor to bump the machine up a notch.
The doctor then adjusted the machine to 20%. The doctor checked
the husband's blood pressure and pulse and was amazed at how
well he was doing. At 50% the husband was still holding up fine,
since this was obviously helping out his wife he encouraged the
doctor to transfer all of the pain. The wife delivered a healthy baby
with virtually no pain. She and her husband were absolutely thrilled.
Everything was great until they got home and found the mailman
dead on their porch.

An old lady noticed that she was about out of gas 

and pulled her car into the nearest self-service gas 

station. She forgot to put out the cigarette she was 

smoking as she began to pump her gas, so she 

flicked it away.  A spark landed on her hand and 

the gas nozzle. The old lady's arm caught fire.  

In a feverish attempt to put out the fire, she 

waved her arm up and down.  A Police officer 

was nearby, saw what was happening and fired 

3 shots at the woman killing her instantly.  

Shocked onlookers asked the officer why he 

shot her. The officer said, "She was waving a firearm."

An elephant was drinking out of a river one 

day, when he spotted a turtle asleep on a 

log. So, he ambled on over and kicked it 

clear across the river. "What did you do that 

for" Asked a passing giraffe.  "Because I 

recognized it as the same turtle that took 

a nip out of my trunk 53 years ago."  "Wow, 

what a memory" commented the giraffe.  

"Yes," said the elephant, "turtle recall".

Q. What did the river say when the hydroelectric 

Engineers began construction?

A. Well I'll be dammed!

Q. What brand of toothpaste to gerbils use?

A. Arm And Hamster.

A baby rabbit was orphaned. Fortunately, a family 

of squirrels took it in and raised it as if it were one 

of their own. This adoption led to some peculiar behavior 

on the part of the rabbit, including a tendency for it to 

run around like its stepsiblings instead of jumping around. 

As the rabbit reached puberty, however, it soon faced 

an identity crisis (don't we all). It went to its stepparents 

to discuss the problem.  It confessed how it felt different f

rom its stepsiblings and was much forlorn. Their response 

was... "Don't scurry, be hoppy."

Chevy Lover's Joke  A man pulled up next to a 

little girl walking home from school and said, "If you 

get in, I'll give you a lollypop." The girl kept walking.  

Following along slowly, the man said, "Come on 

and get in the car with me and I'll give you two lolly 

pops!" She kept her eyes on the sidewalk and 

continued on her way.  The man said "Get in with 

me and I'll give you this whole bag of lollypops!"  

Finally, the girl turned and said - "Look daddy, 

YOU bought the Ford, YOU ride in it!!!"

A road crew is making a giant freeway, when they 

come across a sign and a lever.  The sign reads 

"pull lever and end world".  The workers decide 

not to pull the lever just in case.  One night, a 

man named Nate is driving home. He is very drunk 

and is just about to hit the lever when he flies off of 

the road and explodes.  The headlines in the 

newspaper the next day all read..."better Nate than Lever"!

A man went into his shrink's office and says, "Doc, you
have got to help me! Every night I keep dreaming that I'm
a sports car. The other night I dreamt I was a Trans Am.
Another night I dreamt I was an Alpha Romeo. Last night I
dreamt I was a Porsche. What does this mean?" "Relax,"
says the shrink, "You're just having an auto-body
A certain man had invited the pastor and his wife for dinner

and it was little Joey's job to set the table. But when it
came time to eat, Joey's mother said with surprise,
"Why didn't you give Mrs. Brown a knife and fork dear?".
"I didn't think I needed to," Joey explained, "I heard Daddy
say she always eats like a horse."

He said, she said

He said... Do you love me just because my father left me a fortune?
She said...Not at all honey, I would love you no matter who left you the money.

He said... "This coffee isn't fit for a pig!"
She said..."No problem, I'll get you some that is."

She said...What do you mean by coming home half drunk?
He said... It's not my fault...I ran out of money.

He said... Why do you women always try to impress us with your looks, not with your brains?
She said...Because there is a bigger chance that a man is a moron than he is blind.

He said... What have you been doing with all the grocery money I gave you?
She said...Turn sideways and look in the mirror.

He said... Let's go out and have some fun tonight.
She said...Okay, but if you get home before I do, leave the hallway light on.

A guy was sitting quietly reading his paper when his wife walked up
behind him and whacked him on the head with a frying pan. "What
was that for?" he asked. "That was for the piece of paper in your
pants pocket with the name MaryLou written on it," she replied.
"Two weeks ago when I went to the races, MaryLou was the
name of one of the horses I bet on," he explained. "Oh honey,
I'm sorry," she said. "I should have known there was a good
explanation." Three days later he was watching a ballgame on
TV when she walked up and hit him in the head again, this time
with the iron skillet, which knocked him out cold.
When he came to, he asked, "What the hell was that for?"
She replied "Your horse called."

An aging pirate of the high seas was talking with a mate one day
about his pending retirement. "You ought to be compensated for
your peg leg, your hook for a hand and the patch on your eye,"
said the mate. "You might want to check it out before retiring."
So the pirate went to the compensation board to see for himself.
"How did you lose your leg?" asked the clerk behind the counter.
"Well me and my maties was sailing the high seas one day when
the boom swang around and knocked me into the water and a
shark got me leg." Replied the pirate. "OK", said the clerk, "How
did you lose your hand?" "Well me and my maties were sailing
the high seas one day and the boom swang around and knocked
me into the water and a shark got me hand." The clerk wrote down
his response again, looked up, and noticing the patch on his eye
asked, "And how did you lose your eye? "Well, said the pirate,
One day me and the maties were sailing the high seas and a sea
gull landed on the boom. I looked up and it crapped in me
eye." "You don't lose an eye that way!" scoffed the clerk.
"But it was the first day with me new hook!" the pirate cried.
A husband and wife were having a fine dining experience at their

exclusive country club when this stunning young woman comes
over to their table, gives the husband a big kiss, says she'll see
him later and walks away. His wife glares at him and says, "Who
was that?!" "Oh," replies the husband, "she's my mistress."
"Well that's the last straw," says the wife. "I've had enough, I want
a divorce. I am going to hire the most aggressive, meanest divorce
lawyer I can find and make your life miserable." "I can understand
that," replies her husband, "but remember, if we get a divorce it will
mean no more wintering in Key West, or the Caribbean, no more
summers in Tuscany, no more Cadillac STS in the garage, and no
more country club, and we'll have to sell the 26-room house and
move to two smaller homes, but the decision is yours." Just then,
a mutual friend enters the restaurant with a gorgeous young woman
on his arm. "Who's that with Jim?" asks the wife. "That's his
mistress," says her husband. She replies, "Ours is prettier."
