Rules that guys wished girls knew..........

1. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

2. Learn to work the toilet seat: if it's up, put it down.

3. Don't cut your hair. Ever.

5. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an answer you don't want to hear.

6. Sometimes, he's not thinking about you. Live with it.

7. Don't ask him what he's thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as navel lint, the shotgun formation, and monster trucks.

8. Get rid of your cat. And no, it's not different, it's just like every other cat.

9. Dogs are better than ANY cats. Period.

10. Sunday = Sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.

11. Shopping is not a sport.

12. Anything you wear is fine. Really.

13. You have enough clothes.

14. You have too many shoes.

15. Crying is blackmail. Use it if you must, but don't expect us to like it.

16. Your brother is an idiot, your ex-boyfriend is an idiot, and your dad's way past idiot.

17. Ask for what you want. Subtle hints don't work.

18. No, he doesn't know what day it is. He never will. Mark anniversaries on a calendar.

19. Peeing standing up is more difficult than peeing from point blank range. We're bound to miss sometimes.

31. If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one.

33. Don't rub the lamp if you don't want the genie to come out.

34. You can either ask us to do something OR tell us how you want it done - but not both.

38. Consider golf a mini-vacation from you. We need it, just like you do.

39. Telling us that the models in the men's magazines are airbrushed makes you look jealous and petty, and it's certainly not going to deter us from reading the magazines.

41. Anyone can buy condoms.

Ski season is here! Here's a list of exercises to get you prepared:

you at high speed.

7. Go to McDonald's and insist on paying $8.50 for a hamburger.

Be sure you are in the longest line.

6. Clip a lift ticket to the zipper of your jacket and ride a motorcycle fast

enough to make the ticket lacerate your face.

5. Drive slowly for five hours - anywhere - as long as it's in a snowstorm

and you're following an 18-wheeler.

4. Fill a blender with ice, hit the pulse button and let the spray blast your

face. Leave the ice on your face until it

melts. Let it drip into your clothes.

off because you have to go to the bathroom.

2. Slam your thumb in a car door. Don't go see a doctor.

Why do men die first?

This is a question that has gone unanswered for centuries ... but, now we know...

If you work too hard ... there's never any time for her.

If you don't work enough ... you're a good-for-nothing bum.

If she has a boring repetitive job with low pay ... this is exploitation.

If you have a boring repetitive job with low pay ... you should get off your lazy behind and find something better.

If you get a promotion ahead of her ... that is favoritism.

If she gets a job ahead of you ... it's equal opportunity.

If you mention how nice she looks ... it's sexual harassment.

If you keep quiet ... it's male indifference.

If you cry ... you're a wimp.

liberated woman.

If you appreciate the female form and frilly underwear ... you're a pervert.

If you don't ... you're gay.

If you like a woman to shave her legs and keep in shape ... you're sexist.

2. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of three.

Some people never seem motivated to participate, but are just

content to watch while others do the work. They are called "Speck Taters".

Some people never do anything to help, but are gifted at finding

fault with the way others do the work. They are called "Comment Taters".

Some people are very bossy and like to tell others what to do, but

don't want to soil their own hands. They are called "Dick Taters".

Some people are always looking to cause problems by asking others

to agree with them. It is too hot or too cold, too sour or too sweet.

They are called "Agie Taters".

There are those who say they will help, but somehow just never

get around to actually doing the promised help. They are called "Hezzie Taters".

Some people can put up a front and pretend to be someone they

are not. They are called "Emma Taters".


You have two cows.

You sell one and buy a bull. Your herd multiplies, and the economy

grows. You sell them and retire on the income.


You have two cows. You sell three of them to your publicly listed

company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at

the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with an associated

general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax

exemption for five cows. The milk rights of the six cows are

transferred via an intermediary to a Cayman Island company

secretly owned by the majority  shareholder who sells the rights

to all seven cows back to your listed company.  The annual report

says the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more.

Sell one cow to buy a new president of the United States, leaving

you with nine cows. No balance sheet provided with the release.

The public buys your bull.


You have two cows. You sell one, and force the other to produce

the milk of four cows. You are surprised when the cow drops dead.


You have two cows. You go on strike because you want three cows.


You have two cows. You redesign them so they are one-tenth the size

of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk. You then create

clever cow cartoon images called Cowkimon and market them Worldwide.


You have two cows. You reengineer them so they live for 100 years,

eat once a month, and milk themselves.


You have two cows. Both are mad.


You have two cows, but you don't know where they are. You break for lunch.


You have two cows. You count them and learn you have five cows. You count

them again and learn you have 42 cows. You count them again and learn you

have 12 cows. You stop counting cows and open another bottle of vodka.


You have 5000 cows, none of which belong to you. You charge others for storing them.


You have two cows. You have 300 people milking them. You claim full

employment, high bovine productivity, and arrest the

newsman  who reported the numbers.


You have two cows. That one on the left is kinda cute.

Workplace Humor....

Quote from a recent meeting: "We are going to continue having these meetings, everyday, until I find out why no work is getting done".

Quote from the Boss... "I didn't say it was your fault. I said I was going to blame it on you."

A motivational sign at work: The beatings will continue until morale improves.

A direct quote from the Boss: "We passed over a lot of good people to get the ones we hired."

My Boss frequently gets lost in thought. That's because it's unfamiliar territory.

My Boss said to me " What you see as a glass ceiling, I see as a protective barrier.

My Boss needs a surge protector. That way his mouth would be buffered from surprise spikes in his brain.

He's given automobile accident victims new hope for recovery. He walks, talks and performs rudimentary tasks, all without the benefit of a SPINE.

Some people climb the ladder of success. My Boss walked under it.

Quote from the Boss after overriding the decision of a task force he created to find a solution: " I'm sorry if I ever gave you the impression your input would have any effect on my decision for the outcome of this project!"

HR Manager to job candidate "I see you've had no computer training. Although that qualifies you for upper management, it means you're underqualified for our entry level positions."

Quote from telephone inquiry "We're only hiring one summer intern this year and we won't start interviewing candidates for

that position until the Boss' daughter finishes her summer classes.

More workplace humor...

ACTIVE SOCIALLY: Drinks heavily.


CHARACTER ABOVE REPROACH: Still one step ahead of the law.

UNLIMITED POTENTIAL: Will stick with us until retirement.

QUICK THINKING: Offers plausible excuses for errors.



INDIFFERENT TO INSTRUCTION: Knows more than superiors.


TACTFUL IN DEALING WITH SUPERIORS: Knows when to keep mouth shut.

Murphy's Laws Of Parenting

A child will not spill on a dirty floor.

A young child is a noise with dirt on it.

A youth becomes a man when the marks he wants to leave on the world have nothing to do with tires.

An unbreakable toy is useful for breaking other toys.

Celibacy is not hereditary.

For adult education, nothing beats children.

Having children is like having a bowling alley installed in your brain.

If a child looks like his father, that's heredity; if he looks like a neighbor, that's environment.

If you have trouble getting your children's attention, just sit down and look comfortable.

Insanity is inherited; you get it from your kids.

It now costs more to amuse a child than it once did to educate his father.

It rarely occurs to teenagers that the day will come when they'll know as little as their parents.

Money isn't everything, but it sure keeps the kids in touch.

Summer vacation is a time when parents realize that teachers are grossly underpaid.

The first sign of maturity is the discovery that the volume knob also turns to the left.

There are three ways to get things done:

1: do it yourself. 2: hire someone to do it. 3: or forbid your kids to do it.

You can learn many things from how much patience you have.

Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a US radio personality 

who dispenses advice to people who call in to her 

radio show. Recently, she said that, as an observant 

Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination 

according to Leviticus 18:22, and cannot be condoned 

under any circumstance. The following is an open letter to 

Dr. Laura penned by a US resident, which was posted on 

the Internet. It's funny, as well as informative:


Dear Dr. Laura: 


Thank you for doing so much to educate people 

regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal 

rom your show, and try to share that knowledge 

with as many people as I can. When someone 

tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, 

I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly 

states it to be an abomination. End of debate. 

I do need some advice from you, however, regarding 

some of the other specific laws and how to follow them. 


1. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know 

it creates pleasing odor for the Lord - Lev. 1:9. The 

problem is my neighbors. They claim the odor is not 

pleasing to them. Should I smite them? 


2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as 

sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, 

what do you think would be a fair price for her? 


3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman 

while she is in her period of menstrual cleanliness

 - Lev.15:19-24. The problem is, how do I tell? I have 

tried asking, but most women take offense. 


4. Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess 

slaves, both male and female, provided they are 

purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of 

mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but 

not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own 



5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on 

the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2 clearly states he should 

be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself? 


6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating 

shellfish is an abomination of Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser 

abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can 

you settle this? 


7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar 

of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that 

I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, 

or is there some wiggle room here? 


8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including 

the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly 

forbidden by Lev.19:27. How should they die? 


9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead 

pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves? 


10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by 

planting two different crops in the same field, as does 

his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds 

of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse 

and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to 

all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone 

them? - Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't we just burn them to death 

at a private family affair like we do with people who sleep 

with their in-laws? (Lev.20:14) 


I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am 

confident you can help. Thank you again for reminding us 

that God's word is eternal and unchanging.

Actual answering machine answers recorded and verified by the International Institute of Answering Machine Answers.

(From a machine at a college dorm:)

A is for academics, B is for beer. One of those reasons is why we're not here. So leave a message.

Hi. This is John:  If you are the phone company, I already sent the money. If you are my parents, please send money. If you are my financial aid institution, you didn't lend me enough money.  If you are my friends, you owe me money. If you are a female, don't worry, I have plenty of money.

(Narrator's voice:) There Dale sits, reading a magazine.  Suddenly the telephone rings! The bathroom explodes into a veritable maelstrom of toilet paper, with Dale in the middle of

it, his arms wind milling at incredible speeds! Will he make it in time? Alas no, his valiant effort is in vain. The bell hath sounded. Thou must leave a message.

"Hi. Now you say something."

"Hi, I'm not home right now but my answering machine is, so you can talk to it instead. Wait for the beep." beep "Hello. I am David's answering machine. What are you?"

Hello! This is Sam. If you leave a message, I will call you soon. If you leave a *sexy* message, I'll call sooner!

"Hi! John's answering machine is broken. This is his refrigerator. Please speak very slowly, and I'll stick your message to myself with one of these magnets."

"Hello, this is Sally's microwave. Her answering machine just eloped with her tape deck, so I'm stuck with taking her calls.  Say, if you want anything cooked while you leave your message, just hold it up to the phone.'

"Hello, you are talking to a machine. I am capable of receiving messages. My owners do not need siding, windows, or a hot tub, and their carpets are clean. They give to charity through their office and do not need their picture taken. If you're still with me, leave your name and number and they will get back to you."

"This is not an answering machine, this is a telepathic thought-recording device. After the tone, think about your name, your reason for calling and a number where I can reach you, and I'll think about returning your call."

"Hi. I am probably home, I'm just avoiding someone I don't like. Leave me a message, and if I don't call back, it's you."

"Hi, this is George. I'm sorry I can't answer the phone right now. Leave a message, and then wait by your phone until I call you back."

"If you are a burglar, then we're probably at home cleaning our weapons right now and can't come to the phone. Otherwise, we

probably aren't home and it's safe to leave us a message."

"You're growing tired. Your eyelids are getting heavy. You feel very sleepy now. You are gradually losing your willpower and your ability to resist suggestions. When you hear the tone you will feel helplessly compelled to leave your name, number, and a message."

How to Write More Better:

1.  Avoid alliteration. Always.

2.  Never use a long word when a diminutive one will do.

3.  Employ the vernacular.

4.  Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.

5.  Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary.

6.  Remember to never split an infinitive.

7.  Contractions aren't necessary.

8.  Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.

9.  One should never generalize.

10.  Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson said, "I hate quotations. Tell me what you know."

11.  Comparisons are as bad as clichés.

12.  Don't be redundant; don't use more words than necessary; don't repeat yourself, or say the same thing over again, it's highly superfluous.

13.  Be more or less specific.

14.  Understatement is always best.

15.  One-word sentences? Eliminate.

16.  Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.
