A white man comes from England to South Africa. He is looking for a hotel but all the hotels are full so he makes up his mind to try out a hotel for blacks. They have beds all right, but there is one problem: under the law, a white man cannot sleep in a blacks' hotel. Since it's getting late in the night, the receptionist has an advise to offer:
"Take this shoe-wax, rub it into your face, neck, and hands - so that nobody could tell you from a black - and I'll give you a bed for one night. I'll wake you up at dawn, you wash the wax off and leave the hotel before anyone notices."
The man does what he was told.
Early in the morning, the receptionist wakes the customer up. He goes to the bathroom and tries to wash the wax off but nothing happens. Horrified, he scrubs and brushes, there is no more soap left, but no way, he's still black...
... For the receptionist woke up the wrong man.
Two South African Police were on patrol,
(In the strong days of passbooks, etc)
and they came across a black boy of around
12. He was out of his area, and one of the
policemen urged him to get home asap.

He started running, and the second policeman
took out his bazooka and shot the black boy
in the back.

The first one said:
"Why did you do that?"

The second one replied:
"I know where he lives, and he would never have
been able to get there before curfew"
Monday morning God decided that the world had reached the point of no return. So, he called Bill Clinton, Boris Yeltsin, and Bill Gates to the gates of heaven. He informed them of his decision and told them to go back to their people and prepare them for the end of the world on Thursday.

Boris Yeltsin gets on state television and tells his people that he has bad news and worse news. After decades of telling the Soviet citizens that there is no God, he now realizes that he was wrong. He has seen God with his own eyes. Worse yet, God has decided to destroy the world and each person needs to prepare for Thursday as each sees fit.

Bill Clinton calls a press conference and says that he has good news and bad news. After centuries of telling the US citizens that there is a God, he has proof that we've been right. He has seen God with his own eyes. But the bad news is that God has decided to destroy the world and each person needs to prepare for Thursday as each sees fit.

Bill Gates calls an all-hands meeting. He says that he has wonderful news and even more wonderful news. God, by calling him to the gates of heaven with the leaders of the two most powerful nations in the world, has just confirmed how important Bill Gates really is. The even better news is that on Thursday, IBM will stop shipping OS/2.

A man in a small mountain church in Southern Appalachia had "pleasured hisself" with a woman of the town, and the members of the congregation gathered to decide whether or not to "church" him. They met all afternoon, one group arguing to throw him out and the other arguing to forgive him.
Finally one old woman in the back of the church stood up. "Brethern" and sistern," she said, "I've been a member of this church for forty years. All it's ever been around here is fornicate and forgive, fornicate and forgive, fornicate and forgive. And I'm telling you I'm tired of being the one that's always a'doin' the forgivin'!"

There was this little boy named johnny. Johnny's mom was having a baby. Johnny would go into school everyday and tell the teacher; my mommy's gonna have a baby, my mommy's gonna have a baby.

This went on until about six months into the pregnancy, everyday, so the teacher asks Johnny when is the baby coming. He tells her that he doesn't know, he only knows mommy's having a baby. So the teacher tell's Johnny's mom this and asks her to explain.

Johnny comes home one day and his mother approaches him and says Johnny feel my stomach, do you feel that. He says yes. She says that is the baby in there.

Well a month goes by and Johnny never once mentioned the baby to his teacher. she was a little concerned and asked Johnny when is the baby coming. Johnny says there ain't gonna be no baby. The teacher in horror asks why not and Johnny says, "cause mommy ate it."

For three years, the young attorney had been taking his brief vacations at this country inn. The last time he'd finally managed an affair with the innkeeper's daughter. Looking forward to an exciting few days, he dragged his suitcase up the stairs of the inn, then stopped short. There sat his lover with an infant on her lap! "Helen, why didn't you write when you learned you were pregnant?" he cried. "I would have rushed up here, we could have gotten married, and the baby would have my name!"
"Well," she said, "when my folks found out about my condition, we sat up all night talkin' and talkin' and decided it would be better to have a bastard in the family than a lawyer."

There once was a young sailor who couldn't resist a bet. He would make a bet on anything and he would always win. His shipmates were continually losing their money to him, making them very irritated.

The Captain decided to have the boy transferred to another ship. The next day the boy was transferred, and less than 15 minutes after boarding the ship, the boy addressed his new Captain and bet him 50 dollars he had hemorrhoids. The new Captain had just gotten a physical and knew he had no hemorrhoids, so he agreed to the bet. The boy told his new Captain to drop his drawers and bend over. The Captain did so, and when he bent over, the boy shoved a broomstick up the Captain's ass. The sailor found no hemorrhoids and paid the Captain 50 bucks. The new Captain thought this was great and wanted to call the boy's old Captain and tell him.

When he got the old Captain on the phone he told him he had just taken 50 dollars from the boy. The old Captain replied, "How?"

"Well," explained the Captain, "he bet me I had hemorrhoids. I knew I didn't so I bet him. He told me to drop my drawers and bend over. When I did, he shoved a broomstick up my ass. Hey, no hemorrhoids. Fifty bucks I won."
The old Captain shouted, "That son-of-a-bitch! Before he left here he bet me 500 dollars that within hour he would have a broomstick shoved up your ass!" -------- Pedro Valdes
A mighty fire had been raging at a Texas oil refinery. Fire engines from all around had tried in vain to get close enough to the fierce blaze to put it out, but the heat was so intense that no one could even get near the burning oil and gas. Hundreds of fire trucks from far and wide had been called and now they all just sat wondering what to do.

Suddenly, an old fire engine from a tiny fire company appeared in the distance. It was the only truck from a tiny town and had been driving all night in response to this alarm. To the amazement of all of the firemen, the tiny truck sped right past the other fire engines and came to a leisurely halt right at the base of the fire. The men in the tiny truck leaped out, doused themselves with water from their own hoses, and proceeded to extinguish the fire.

The next dat at an awards ceremony for the 6 heoic men of the tiny fire company, the Governor presented the fire chief with a check for $20,000.
"What do you think your fire company will do with such a large amount of money?", asked the Governor.

"Well," replied the old fire chief, "the first thing we're gonna do with it is fix the brakes on that old truck!" 8-)

An elderly doctor and a Presbyterian minister were seated next
to each other on the plane. The plane was delayed at the start
due to some technical problems. Just after taking off, the
pilot offered his apologies to the passengers and announced
that a round of free drinks would be served.
When the charming air-hostess came round with the trolley, the
doctor ordered a gin and tonic for himself. The hostess then
asked the minister whether he wanted anything.
He replied - "Oh No! - thank you. I would rather commit
adultery than drink alcohol.
The elderly doctor promptly handed back his gin and tonic to
the air-hostess saying ...
"Madam, - I did not know there was a choice."

Two new assistant professors in linguistics at Auburn University were traveling across the state to a meeting. As they passed a road sign, the passenger read out the sign: Arab - 25 miles. [He pronounced it AY-rab.] The driver corrected him: "No, not even in Alabama. It's got to be pronounced AIR-ab." "No," repeated the passenger, "I'm sure it's AY-rab!" "AIR-ab!"
And so the argument continued. They bet $10 and agreed to stop and ask. When they got to Arab, they pulled into the first hamburger joint, and the driver went up to the window.
The lady slid up the glass and in her flat local accent asked, "Kin I he'p yew?"
"Yes," answered the professor. "My friend and I have a bet about the correct way to pronounce the name of this place. Would you, very slowly and very clearly, pronounce it for me?"

President Clinton and his family went out one evening to a baseball game. When the home team's catcher heard that the president was sitting in the stands, he went over to Bill and whispered something in his ear. Bill smiled. A few minutes later, the catcher came over and said "It's time, Mr. President." Bill lifted Hillary over his head, spun around a few times, and flung her over the railing onto the field.

Both men had been drinking for the better part of the day. "You know", said the first man, "I heard that if a man were to jump of off this building, the wind at this height is so strong that he wouldn't hit the ground. Instead, he would be blown right back up here!" "That's a lie", exclaimed the second man. "I don't (hic) believe that for a second."
With that, the first man staggered to a nearby window, opened it, and stepped out. As his drinking buddy watched with glazed eyes, the man plummetted toward the pavement. And then, incredibly, he stopped falling and began rocketing upward toward the window. Within seconds he was standing within the bar beside his friend.
The second man gupled down the rest of his drink and headed for the window. He stepped out into the air and fell toward the streets hundreds of feet below. He struck the pavement in a matter of seconds.
Back up in the bar, the first man doubled over with laughter as he walked back to his barstool and ordered another drink.
Then the bartender walked up to him and said, "You know, Superman, you sure are mean when you drink.

LOCKER-ROOM JOKE: For best results tell only to males who have not surrendered their adolescent nature.

Reggie owned an elephant, but the cost of feeding it was getting out of hand. Then he got an idea. He had seen elephants lift one leg and even two legs. Once in a circus he'd even seen an elephant lift three legs in the air and stand on just one.

So Reggie announced to the world that he'd pay ten thousand dollars to anyone who could make his elephant stand in the air on no legs. However, each person who wanted to try would have to pay a hundred dollars.

People came from near and far. They tried everything from coaxing to hypnotism , but no one could make the elephant rise up in the air. Then one day a blue convertible drove up and a little man got out and addressed Reggie: "Is it true that you will pay ten
thousand dollars if I make your elephant get off all four legs?"
"Yes," Reggie said,"but you've got to pay one hundred dollars to try."

The little man handed Reggie a hundred-dollar bill. Then he went back to the car took out a metal club. He walked up to the elephant and looked him in the eye. Then he walked behind the elephant and swung hard, hitting the elephant smack in the balls. The elephant let out a roar and flew up into the air. (Okay to giggle).

After the little man had collected his ten thousand dollars, Reggie was very depressed. He'd only taken in eight thousand dollars and now he'd not only lost a couple of grand but still had the problem of feeding and housing the elephant.

Suddenly Reggie got another inspiration. He knew that elephants could move their heads up and down, but he had never seen one move side to side. So he announced that he would pay ten thousand
dollars to the person who could make his elephant move the head side to side. However, each person had to pay a hundred dollars to try.

All these people came (I am tired of typing)...Blah,blah,blah...
Then finally the same little man came, paid a hundred bucks. He returned to his car took out his metal club.

He walked up to the elephant, "Do you remember me?" he asked.

The elephant nodded his head up and down.

"Do you want me to do it again?"

The elephant quickly shook his head ... NO. (Laugh now).

RESPONDING TO A READER WHO COMPLAINED that his radio had been in a repair shop for two years, the "Action Line" reporter for an Ottawa, Canada, newspaper, \The Citizen/, claimed it had taken another area resident seven years to have a black-and-white television set repaired.

According to the story, the set was stolen from the repair shop, then had to be held as evidence in the thief's trial. After it was returned to the repair shop, the shop owner died, and while his funeral was going on, thieves broke into the store and stole the set again.

After being recovered by the police once more(!), the TV was
returned to the original owner, who took it to another repair shop, but that business went bankrupt, and the receivers liquidating the shop's assets sold the set accidentally. After being informed of their mistake, the liquidation company bought the set back and was delivering it to its owner when it accidentally rolled onto its face and the picture tube broke.

After a lengthy debate over responsibility for the accident, the liquidating firm finally agreed to pay, but by then the original manufacturer of the set had gone out of business and replacement parts were hard to find.
Nevertheless, seven years after it first broke down, the set was finally repaired. However, on his way home with the TV in the trunk of his car, the owner was struck from behind by a careening pickup truck. The set was demolished. (contributed by R. J. Lemaire)

A salesman who was accustomed to the better things in life because of an elaborate expense account once found himself in the backwoods south. He was hot, dusty, and thirsty and needed a place to stay. Soon he came to a motel on the side of the road. He walked into the office and was met by the two backwoods country boys who ran the place. "Gentlemen", he began, "I need a clean room, a hot bath, a bottle of your best whiskey and a woman." They two boys looked at each other, then turned to the man, "Yes suh!!" They gave him a room which was cozy and clean. He was pleased, and he decided to take his hot bath. He called to the office and told the boys he was ready for his liquor and a woman. They agreed to send up the liquor right away and the woman would come (no pun intended) in just a few minutes. They brought their bottle of Southern Comfort to the man who was relaxing in a steaming bath. When they left they panicked. "Where in the hell we gonna get a woman now??" They then remembered the inflatable woman that the last salesman had left. When they figured the man was good and "relaxed" they sent in the lifesize inflatable doll.

The next morning as the salesman came to check out, the boys asked him how he had enjoyed his stay. "Well boys, I gotta tell ya. The room was great--the bath was hot--and the liquor did the trick. But that woman was something else. I bit her in the titty, she farted and flew out the windows backwards. Never did see her again. --------: THE UNICORN
There were once 3 sisters that were all growing older. They were all sitting downstairs watching television, when one sister said,"I think I will go upstairs & take a bath."

Reggie owned an elephant, but the cost of feeding it was getting out of hand. Then he got an idea. He had never seen an elephant laugh.

So Reggie announced to the world that he'd pay ten thousand dollars to anyone who could make his elephant laugh. However, each person who wanted to try would have to pay a hundred dollars.

People came from near and far. They tried everything from coaxing to hypnotism , but no one could make the elephant utter a laughter, not even raise a little smile. Then one day a blue convertible drove up and a little man got out and addressed Reggie: "Is it true that you will pay ten thousand dollars if I make your elephant laugh ?"
"Yes," Reggie said,"but you've got to pay one hundred dollars to try."

The little man handed Reggie a hundred-dollar bill. He asked to be alone with the elephant for a moment. Reggie left them in the backyard.

Not one minute after that, he heard the elephant explode with
hilarity. He ran to his yard and saw his elephant lying on the
ground with hysterical laughter.

Reggie, astonished, asked the little man what he could have done to the elephant to make him laugh : it was theoretically impossible for an elephant to laugh. The man answered : "I told him I got a bigger dick than his".

After the little man had collected his ten thousand dollars, Reggie was very depressed. He'd only taken in eight thousand dollars and now he'd not only lost a couple of grand but still had the problem of feeding and housing the elephant.

Suddenly Reggie got another inspiration. He now knew that elephants could laugh, but he was absolutely sure that they could by no mean cry. So he announced that he would pay ten thousand dollars to the person who could make his elephant cry. However, each person had to pay a hundred dollars to try.

All these people came (I will not type either)...Blah,blah,blah...
Then finally the same little man came, paid a hundred bucks. He asked again to be alone with the elephant for a minute.

Shortly after, Reggie heard the elephant sobbing. He ran to his back- yard and saw the elephant, completely depressed, crying bitter tears.
Reggie couldn't believe his eyes. He asked the little man : "Well how COULD you do that ? Last time you told him you had a bigger dick than his, but ..."

The man interrupted : "I showed it".

Jesus was walking through the hospital one day. He went up to a blind man and said, "Have faith my son, close your eyes and when you open them, you will see." The blind man closed his eyes, Jesus touched the blind man, and when he opened his eyes he could see. He kissed Jesus's hand and said "Thank you Jesus."

Later that day Jesus saw a lame man using crutches. He went up to the man and touched his shoulder and said, "Have faith my son, throw away the crutches, and you will walk." The man threw away the crutches and his legs were strong, and the man could walk perfectly. He kissed Jesus's hand and said "Thank you Jesus."

As Jesus walked through the ward, he noticed a man with his face covered and just his eyes were visible. Jesus went over to the man's bed and tried to pull the covers so he could see the man's face. The man pulled the covers over his head, as if to hide. Jesus asked, "What is wrong my son?" To which the man said, "F***off, I'm on compensation!"

So this mouse is walking around in the middle of nowhere when he hears a faint cry: "help me, help me." He looks around and finally he locates the source of the noise. There's an elephant down at the bottom of very deep hole, and the elephant can't get out. "Won't you please help me," pleads the elephant. "No problem," replies the mouse, "I'll be right back." A few minutes later, he shows up with a Corvette, attaches a rope to it, lowers the other end of the rope down to the elephant, and tows the elephant out of the hole. "Thanks," says the elephant, "I owe you one." Several weeks later, the elephant is walking around when he hears a cry for help. This time it is the mouse who has fallen into a hole and can't get out. Since the mouse had saved him, the elephant decides to save the mouse. So the elephant straddles the hole, drops his dick down to the bottom, and lets the mouse climb up his dick and safely out of the hole.

He traveled to the Northwest territory, hired a guide, and went up into the woods after a grizzly. After three weeks of no success, the guide said he was going back. The hunter refused to give up, however, and continued his hunt. Two days later he came upon the most gigantic grizzly in the forest. As he crept toward a better location, he tripped and the rifle went off in the air attracting the attention of the grizzly. When he tried to reload, the gun jammed. He threw the gun down and began to run with the grizzly in hot pursuit. He ran several hundred yards brushing limbs aside, stumbling over logs, etc. Finally, he fell...exhausted on the ground just as the grizzly was almost on him. He closed his eyes and said, "Oh God, please make this a Christian bear so he won't eat me." Suddenly everything got real quiet so he opened his eyes and saw the grizzly kneeling down over him with his front paws together saying, "Bless this food, Oh Lord."

This man who wasn't feeling well went to his physician. During the examination, the doctor asked him if he was able to sleep well. He said, "Yes, 8 full hours a day." Then the doctor asked if he was eating well. He said, "Yes, 3 meals a day." Then the doctor asked if his bowels move regularly. He said, "Yes, just like clock-work at 7:45 each morning." The doctor indicated that he didn't know what the problem was so he thought he would administer a new drug which would kill all germs known to man within 24 hours. Three little germs living inside the man overheard the conversation and the first germ said, "I'm going to hide behind the heart, that drug will never find me there." The second germ said, "I'm going to hide behind the liver in hopes the drug will pass me by unnoticed." The third germ said, "You guys can be heroes if you want, but I'm taking the 7:45 outta here."

This very religious lady inherited a parrott named Suzie from her aunt. It happens that the aunt used to run the local house of ill-repute in a Northwestern logging town, and the only thing Suzie could say was, "Hi, I'm Suzie. I'm a bad girl, let's have a good time." She tried everything to cure this, but to no avail. The religious lady told of her plight to the local priest and he said that he knew of two very religious parrotts named Peter and Paul at the district parrish. He felt that if Suzie were placed with Peter and Paul, their religion would rub off on her. So they took Suzie to the parrish and placed her in the cage with Peter and Paul. She immediately said, "Hi, I'm Suzie. I'm a bad girl, let's have a good time." Whereupon Peter turned to Paul and said, "You can put that prayer book down now, Paul. Our prayers have been answered."

The Elephant Search Test (EST) is a widely accepted DOD standard test that has been found useful in determining the level of an employee within his or her job category. There is but one question on the test. It reads as follows:
Describe how you would identify and catch an elephant in Africa. Answers given by professionals in various job categories appear below.
Junior Mathematician:
Will attempt to prove that at least one elephant exists before attempting to search the continent.

Senior Mathematician:
Will prove the existence of at least one Africa and leave the remainder of the problem to Junior Mathematician.

Will catch from zoos some number of random elephants and weigh them to get a representative weight as well as a variance. Then he will catch every moving thing on the continent. Anything that comes within +/- 1000 pounds will be classified as an elephant. Other minor differences will be assumed to be non-relevant.

Junior Computer Scientist:
Will traverse the continent beginning at the Cape of Good Hope and proceed northward in a west to east pattern catching all items and comparing their characteristics to a previously defined set of elephant characteristics until some item is found that matches every element of the set. All data on this process will be lost, however, since no documentation will be maintained.

Senior Computer Scientist:
Same as Junior Computer Scientist except that a known elephant will be placed in Cairo so that the search will terminate properly. Also, the entire episode (results included) will be documented before it starts.
Personnel Specialist:
Will send out forms to all living creatures asking them to respond immediately if they suspect that they may be elephants. Respondents will then be interviewed and ranked according to the likelihood that they are indeed elephants. None, of course, will meet all the qualifications.
Will immediately propose a law requiring a yearly census of each item on the continent and a committee will be formed to evaluate the results of the survey and to propose follow-up legislation.

Chinese Politician:
Will kill every living thing on the continent and then claim that no elephants have ever existed there and that everything that does remain there is happy and doesn't want any more attention. Will then apply to USA for most favored nation status based on services rendered in Africa.
Will determine the probability of finding an elephant on any given attempt and will quickly decide that it is not worth the effort to try to find one.

Administrative Chairman:
Will honest to God try his damnedest to get to Africa to catch whatever it is that he is supposed to look for, but will probably be unable to get there due to his schedule. If he ever gets there he will search with all his might and with all of the latest gear to find anything, but his staff will keep all elephants safely out of sight and lead him instead to a banquet prepared in his honor.

Administrative Staff:
Does not want to see any damned elephants or go to Africa. Will assure chairman that no elephants exist and that even if one did exist, he, the chairman, should not worry about it. Once in Africa, the staff will stick close to the chairman and scare all the elephants away and assure everyone that no elephants are present. If the chairman happens to see one they will assure him that he, in fact, saw nothing of the sort and that he will receive a full report on the matter first thing Monday morning.

Will immediately move to have the matter dropped and insist on being paid for his trouble.

ACLU Lawyer:
Unfortunately, due to a federal injunction, no information can be made available concerning this answer since we are currently being sued for coming up with this test.
(But you get the idea.)

Mayor of Washington, DC:
Will eagerly jump at the chance to meet any creature with a snorting tube already attached to its nostrils.

Will call around until one is eventually found in the building, thereby relieving everyone else of having to look for it. Will then make copies of the animal and distribute one to everyone. Extra copies will be filed away for later use.

A Catholic Priest, and former president of Gonzaga University once told the following story to an audience of over 100 at the Brigham Young University Home Living Center--it was a higher education conference held around 1970. With but one modernization--which you will recognize--the story is essentially as told to this august audience.

A fast-track young business executive had been working quite hard and one afternoon developed a splitting headache, sufficiently painful that he decided to take the rest of the afternoon off. He went home, which was an apartment on the 12th floor of a high-rise condominium, and realized upon reaching his door that he had left his keys at the office. He rang the doorbell and with no answer rang it again---and again.

After several minutes his wife opened the door. Her hair was in disarray and she had only her bathrobe on. The young exec was a bit suspicious, so he ran through the apartment looking for someone else. There was no one behind the living room couch, under the bed, in the walk-in closet, or in the bathroom. He ran into the kitchen and found no one in the pantry or under the kitchen table. He then looked over the kitchen balcony, and there, 12 stories below on a patio, was a man slipping on a shirt. Immediately concluding that he had discovered the guilty party, the young exec went berserk, grabbed the refrigerator and, heaving and shoving, managed to dump the refrigerator over the balcony railing.

The stress was so great that the young exec had a heart attack and died. He wafted his way to the pearly gates and there met ST. Peter who commented that he seemed to be quite young for his arrival and wondered why he was there. The young exec told his story, and St. Peter replied that it was a terrible thing that he had done, but that since he had done it in a fit of unreasoning rage there would be some forgiveness and that therefore he could enter heaven at about level 7.

A moment or two later a second young man appeared at the pearly gates, and upon a similar query from St. Peter explained that he didn't know exactly what happened. He had been resting in a hammock on a patio of a high rise condominium, realized that it was 3:30 and that he was working the 4 to 12 shift, leapt out of the hammock to put his shirt on and then, sensing a shadow and hearing a shout, looked up just in time to see that some nut had pushed a refrigerator over a balcony railing. Not having time to move, he was dispatched to the pearly gates. St. Peter, feeling sorry for the young man, and recognizing that he had lived a good life, told him he could enter at heaven at level 2.

No sooner had the young man left than President Clinton showed up. Incredulous, St. Peter pointed out that he hadn't expected the President for some years yet, and asked how he had managed to arrive so soon.
President Clinton responded--To tell you the truth, I don't know what happened. There I was, sitting in this refrigerator, minding my own business....

Sex life of an electron

One night when his charge was pretty high, Micro Farad decided to try to get a cute coil to let him discharge. He picked up Milli Amp and took her for a ride on his megacycle. They rode across Wheastone bridge, around the sine wave and stopped in a magnetic field by a flowing current.

Micro Farad, attracted by Millie's characteristic curves, decided to engage in a little mutual inductance, and soon had her resistance at a minimum and his field fully excited. He laid her on the ground potential, raised her frequency, lowered his capacitance, and pulled out his high voltage probe. He inserted it into her tank circuit, connecting them in parallel and began to short circuit her shunt. Fully excited, Milli Amp cried, "MHO", MHO, it Hertz, but give me MHO".
With his tune operating at maximum amplitude, her coil vibrating from the current flow, they soon reached plate saturation and found their cutoff point. The heavy current flow made her tubes of anode very hot and Micro Farad was rapidity discharged and drained of every electron. They fluxed all night, trying various connections until his bar magnet had lost all of its field strength and her grid was leaking; Later, Milli Amp tried self induction and damaged her solenoids. With his battery fully discharged and his contacts corroded, Micro Farad was unable to excite his generator, so they ended by reversing polarity and blowing each others fuses.

This is related by a recent emigre from the USSR, according to
a recent issue of "World Press Review":

One colllld winter, a rumor went around that a certain butcher shop would have meat for sale the next day. By very early the next morning, a long queue had formed outside of the butcher shop.
At 8 o'clock an official came out briefly and announced, "Well, comrades, I'm afraid there's not enough meat for everybody here. Would all of the Jews leave?"
They did, and the line was shortened somewhat.
At 11 o'clock the official came out again and announced, "Well, comrades, I'm afraid there's still not enough meat for all. Would all of the non-party members please leave?"
They did, and the line was shortened again.
At 2 o'clock, the official came out again. "There's still not enough meat for all of you! Would all those who did not defend our great country from the fascist German intruder leave?"
Once again, the line was considerably shortened.
At 5 o'clock, the official announcement was, "There's still not enough! Would all those who did not participate in the liberation of our people from the terrors of the Czar leave!"
This included just about everybody.
Finally, at 8 o'clock in the evening, the official came out again. The only people left in line were three half-frozen old men. He told them, "There isn't any meat."
The old men moved slowly away, grumbling among themselves - "Those Jews get the best of everything!!"

So, the next morning, the young man put the sow in the wheelbarrow and pushed her down the road to farmer Brown's. After the sow and the boar "did the dirty," the young man pushed the sow back home. The next morning the couple checked, but there were no pigs yet. So, the man loaded the sow onto the wheelbarrow and took her back to Farmer brown's. The next morning--no piglets. So, the next day they tried again. The next morning, as the wife and husband ate breakfast:
Wife: we got any baby pigs?
Husband: No, but the sow's in the wheelbarrow.

He watched the monkey do this until the entire bowl was empty. Being rather upset and confused by what he had witnessed, he went up to the offices, and asked to speak with the zoo- keeper.

When he was led into the keeper's office, he told him that something was definitely wrong with one of his monkeys. After he related what he had seen, the keeper gravely nodded his head and said that the monkey he had seen was the smartest animal in the zoo.

Hardships in Sarajevo remind me another one from Moscow.

A man walks into a food store and asks what kind of meet they have today. "The dog, grade B," the salesman says, "would you like some?"
"Well, if it's indeed the only sort you have, I might take a couple of pounds."
And after a while: "Hey, what are those pieces of wood supposed to be?" The salesman: "Give me a break, man. Don't you know the B-grade meat comes with the dog-hole?"

A farmer's bull seemed to lacked his usual sexual drive and wasn't going near the cows. The farmer called the vet, who examined the bull and prescribed something to stimulate the bull's interest. A couple of weeks later, the farmer ran into a friend who asked, "How's that bull? Did the vet help?" The farmer: "Thankfully, the bull is back to his former frisky self." Neighbor: "What miracle drug did the vet prescribe?"
The farmer: "I don't know, but it tastes like licorice."

This joke was told at an Italian wedding by the priest who had earlier conducted the ceremony. It went something like this:

Sister Mary was one day teaching her class of grade three
children and she decided to test them out to see how much they learn't. She says to the children; "Who knows where god lives ?"

One little boy puts up his hand and says "I know where god lives, he lives up there in the sky and the clouds"

"That's very good, "says sister mary, "Does anyone else have another answer?"

A little girl puts up her hand and says "I know where god lives, he lives in the ground and the hills and the grass everywhere."

"That's very good,"says sister mary,"anyone else?"

Then another boy says "I know where God lives for sure, he lives in my home in the toilet."

Sister Mary gets a little concerned and asks "How do you know that young lad?"

"Well,"says the boy, "every day, early in the morning I see my father banging on the door of our toilet saying 'God are you still in there?'" --------: Joe Risser
One evening after the theater, two fellows were walking down the avenue. They o bserved a well dressed, attractive, young lady just ahead of them. One turned t o other and remarked: "I'd give $50 to spend the night with her." To their surprise, the woman overheard the remark and turning around said, "I'll take up on that." The man accompanied the woman to her apt where they went to bed.
The next morning the man presented her with $25. She asked for the rest saying "If you don't give the other $25, I'll sue." He laughed, "I'd like to see you get it on those grounds."

The next day, he was surprised when served a summons offering his presence in court. He hurried to his lawyer and explained the details to him. His lawyer said "She can't possibly get a judgement against you but it will be interesting to see how the case is presented."

After the usual preliminaries, the lady's lawyer adresses the court, "Your honor my client is the owner of a piece of property, a garden spot surrounded by a profuse growth of shrubbery, which property she agreed to rent for a specific time to the defendant for the sum of $50. The defendant took possession of the property, used it extensively for the purpose for which it was rented, but upon evacuateion, paid only $25. The rent was not excessive as it is restricted property and we ask judgement to be granted against the defendant to assure payment of the balance."

The defendant's lawyer was impressed and somewhat amused. His defense was altered from what he had planned, "Your honor, my client agreed that the young lady has a fine deed of property, that he did rent such property for the time, a nd a degree of pleasure was derived from the transaction. However, my client found a well on the property, around which he placed his own stones, sunk a shaft, and injected a pump, all being performed by him. We claim these imp improvements to the property are sufficient to effect the unpaid balance and the plaintiff was adequately compensated for rent of said property. We, therefore, ask judgement to be directed for the defendant."

The young lady's lawyer came back with, "Your honor, my client agrees that the defendant did find a well on the property and made improvements described. However, if the defendant had not known the well existed, he would never have rented the property.
Also, upon evacuating the premises, the defendant moved the stones, pulled out the shaft and took the pump with him. In so doing, he not only dragged the eq equipment through the shrubbery but left the hole larger than it was prior to his occupancy, making it easily accessible to little children. We, therefore, ask judgement be granted."

...and damned if she didn't get it.]

There were these two farmers, one was very wealthy and the other was poor. Well it just happen to be that there wifes had birthdays on the same day.
The poor farmer said to the wealthy farmer, "What do you plan on getting your wife for her birthday tomorrow?"

PF: A pair of slippers and a dildo.

RF: Why the dildo?

PF: That way, if she doesn't like the slippers, she can go fuck herself. ****************************

A tourist rents a camel to an old Bedouin, who tells him :
- It's a very capricious animal, sometimes it stops and won't continue. - What do I do then ?
- You take these two bricks I give you, and when it stops, you get down, walk behind it, and (*smash*) crush its balls between the bricks ! - God, it must hurt terribly !
- No, look : if you hold them this way, with your thumbs on the upper side, it doesn't hurt at all.

Bill was walking along the beach when he noticed a bottle sticking up through the sand. He reached down to pick it up, brushed it off and stuck it under his arm as there was no trash can close to deposit it. A few seconds later, smoke started coming out of the bottle.
Startled, he dropped the bottle. Much to his surprise a genie
appeared. The genie said, "I really appreciate you letting me out of that bottle. I've been in there for years. For doing this, I will grant you a wish. What do you want more than anything else?" Bill thought for a while and said, "I want to be known now and until the end of time as being the person responsible for causing peace to happen in the Middle East." The genie said, "OH MY!, that's a huge request. I'm only a junior genie and there is only one genie in the whole universe who can accomplish that!" "What is your second wish?" Bill thought for a moment and said, "I want my wife and daughter to be known throughout the world as being the most desirable and
beautiful women in the world." The genie smiled and nodded and then thought a moment. With a puzzled look on his face he said, "What was your first wish?"

--------: Jay Pittman On his recent visit to Colorado, the Pope was running late for one of his many meetings. But when His Holiness instructed his limosine driver to hurry up, the man replied that he had been given strict instructions NOT to speed. The Pope was eager not to be late, however, and again urged the man to go faster, but again the driver refused.
Finally, in frustration, the Pope ordered the man into the back seat of the limo, and His Holiness took the wheel. Five minutes later the limo had been pulled over by an officer who, upon seeing the driver of the car, walked back to his car and called his commanding officer.

Officer: Sarge, I've got a problem. I caught someone speeding but he is a really important guy. Should I give him a ticket anyway?
Sarge: Of course you should. It doesn't matter how important he is. By the way, how important is he? Is he as important as our governor?

Officer: Oh yes, sir. He is much more important than that.

Sarge: Is he as important (gulp) as the President?

Officer: Yes sir. He is even more important that that!

Sarge: Well just who is this guy and how important is he?

Officer: Well, sir, I can't really say for sure, but he is using the Pope as a chauffeur.
Marie and Pierre had just gotten married, and were at the hotel for the first night of their honeymoon. Marie went to the bathroom and put on a sexy nightie and came out, only to see Pierre sitting at the end of the bed, fully dressed. Marie snuggled up to Pierre and said, "Pierre, why don't you take off your shoes and socks and get more comfortable?"

Pierre took off his shoes and socks, and Marie saw that his toes were curled up backwards! "Pierre, what happened to your toes?"

"When I was a child," Pierre replied, "I had Tolio."

"OK," replied Marie. So she started kissing Pierre and said "Pierre, why don't you take off your pants?" Pierre took off his pants, and Marie saw that his knees were horribly knobby and twisted. "Pierre! What happened to your knees?"

"When I was a child, I had Neasles."

"OK. . . . . . Pierre, why don't you take off your shorts?"

So Pierre took off his shorts and Marie exclaimed, "Oh, Pierre, not Smallcox, too!"

So Pierre and Antoine walked to a hill outside of town to shoot the gun. Piere sited the gun and said "Antoine! I can see your house! I can see your wife through the picture window. She is naked. John Luke is there with her.

"Pierre," asked Antoine, "can you shoot well?"


"Good. I only have two bullets. With the first one, I want you to shoot my wife in the head. With the second, I want you to shoot John Luke through the penis."

"Antoine, I have good news. I only need one bullet."

Three contractors, a black, a jew and an Italian, die simultaneously and arrive at the pearly gates together. St. Peter greets them and says "Glad you're here. The elevator to heaven is broken. Since you're contractors, perhaps you could fix it."

He turns to the black contractor and says "Give me an estimate." The black guy thinks, and says "$30" St. Peter thinks this is kind of low, and asks how he arrived at the estimate. "$10 for parts, $10 for labor and $10 for profit."

He turns to the jewish contractor and says "Give me an estimate." The jewish guy thinks, and says "$99" St. Peter figures this is kind of high, and asks how he arrived at the estimate. "$33 for parts, $33 for labor and $33 for profit."

Finally, he asks the Italian. "Give me an estimate." The Italian says "$230." "$230!!!" says St. Peter. "How'd you come up with THAT??!!??" The Italian says, "$100 for me, $100 for you and $30 for the black guy." --------: Charlie Hill
One day, Adam sat outside the Garden of Eden shortly after eating the apple, and wondered about men and women.

So looking up to the heavens he says, "Excuse me GOD, can I ask you a few questions?"

GOD replied, "Go on Adam but be quick I have a world to create."
So Adam says," When you created Eve, why did You make her body so curvey and tender unlike mine?"

"I did that, Adam, so that you could love her."

"Oh, well then, why did You give her long, shiney, beautiful hair, and not me?"

"I did that Adam so that you could love her."

"Oh, well then, why did You make her so stupid? Certainly not so that I could love her?"

"Well Adam, No. I did that so that she could love you."

Marcel was a French laborer who was intent on improving himself and his status in life. To that end, he enrolled in night classes and began all too quickly to disgust his fellow workers with his new-found knowledge. At a lunch break one day, he started again:

"I learned something last night that you don't know. What is the name of the person who prevented the Moors from taking over France? You don't know; I'll tell you; it was Charles Martel.

"And what is the name of the man who 'invented' the potato? You won't know; it was Parmentier.

"And what is the name of the scientist who cured smallpox? Let me tell you, it was Pasteur." And on and on.

Then Jean-Luc broke in, and said, "Tell me who is Alain Lefevre? I'll bet you don't know!" Marcel thought and thought, but he had never heard of Alain Lefevre. Jean-Luc continued, "You won't know.
