I dedicate this book to my wife Gerri, my dad Stan, my mother Debbie, my children Jake, Robbie, Heather, and Robin, my extended family the Goetz family, and my faithful dog Smokey. All these people and others have helped me through life s toughest times with the help of humor. The following jokes and pieces of wit were gathered from e-mails and links sent to me from family and friends when I needed a lift and a reminder not to take life to seriously. I wish I could acknowledge each and every person responsible for the humor but the authors were not made available to me. I take no credit at all for the originality of any of these pieces of humor.

What Starts With an F and ends with a K
A first-grade teacher, Ms. Brooks, was having trouble with one of her students. The teacher asked, "Harry, what's your problem?" Harry answered, "I'm too smart for the 1st grade. My sister is in the 3rd grade and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the 3rd grade too!" Ms. Brooks had had enough. She took Harry to the principal's office. While Harry waited in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal what the situation was. The principal told Ms. Brooks he would give the boy a test. If he failed to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the 1st grade and behave. She agreed. Harry was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to take the test. Principal: "What is 3 x 3?" 4

Harry: "9." Principal: "What is 6 x 6?" Harry: "36." And so it went with every question the principal thought a 3rd grader should know. The principal looks at Ms. Brooks and tells her, "I think Harry can go to the 3rd grade" Ms. Brooks says to the principal, "Let me ask him some questions." The principal and Harry both agreed. Ms. Brooks asks, "What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?" Harry, after a moment: "Legs." Ms. Brooks: "What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?" The principal wondered why would she ask such a question! Harry replied: "Pockets." Ms. Brooks: "What does a dog do that a man steps into?" Harry: "Pants." Ms. Brooks: What starts with a C, ends with a T, is hairy, oval, delicious and contains thin, whitish liquid?" Harry: "Coconut." The principal sat forward with his mouth hanging open. Ms. Brooks: "What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky?" The principal's eyes opened really wide and before he could stop the answer, Harry replied, "Bubble gum." Ms. Brooks: "What does a man do standing up, a woman does sitting down and a dog does on three legs?" Harry: "Shake hands. The principal was trembling. Ms. Brooks: "What word starts with an 'F' and ends in 'K' that means a lot of heat and excitement?" Harry: "Firetruck." The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the teacher, "Put Harry in the fifth-grade, I got the last seven questions wrong.

Don't Argue With The Gay Flight Attendant
My flight was being served by an obviously gay flight attendant, who seemed to put everyone in a good mood as he served us food and drinks. As the plane prepared to descend, he came swishing down the aisle and told us "Captain Marvey has asked me to announce that he'll be landing the big scary plane shortly, so lovely people, if you could just put your trays up, that would be super." On his trip back up the aisle, he noticed an extremely well-dressed and exotic young woman hadn't moved a muscle. "Perhaps you didn't hear me over those big brute engines but I asked you to raise your trazy-poo, so the main man can pitty-pat us on the ground." She calmly turned her head and said, "In my country, I am called a Princess and I take orders from no one." To which the flight attendant replied, without missing a beat, "Well, sweet-cheeks, in my country I'm called a Queen, so I outrank you. Tray up, Bitch."


Before and After Marriage


Stella Awards
It's time again for the annual "Stella Awards"! For those unfamiliar with these awards, they are named after 81-year-old Stella Liebeck who spilled hot coffee on herself and successfully sued the McDonald's in New Mexico where she purchased the coffee. You remember..... she took the lid off the coffee and put it between her knees while she was driving. Who would ever think one could get burned doing that - right? That's right, these are awards for the most outlandish lawsuits and verdicts in the U.S. You know, the kinds of cases that make you scratch your head. So keep your head scratcher handy. Here are the Stella's for the past year: 7TH PLACE : Kathleen Robertson of Austin, Texas was awarded $80,000 by a jury of her peers after breaking her ankle tripping over a toddler who was running inside a furniture store. The store owners were understandably surprised by the verdict, considering the running toddler was her own son. 6TH PLACE : Carl Truman, 19, of Los Angeles, California won $74,000 plus medical expenses when his neighbor ran over his hand with a Honda Accord. Truman apparently didn't notice there was someone at the wheel of the car when he was trying to steal his neighbor's hub caps. Go ahead, grab your head scratcher. 5TH PLACE : Terrence Dickson, of Bristol, Pennsylvania, was leaving a house he had just burglarized by way of the garage. Unfortunately for Dickson, the automatic garage door opener malfunctioned and he could not get the garage door to open. Worse, he couldn't re-enter the house because the door connecting the garage to the house locked when Dickson pulled it shut. Forced to sit for eight, count 'em, EIGHT, days on a case of Pepsi and a large bag of dry dog food, he sued the homeowner's insurance company claiming undue mental Anguish. Amazingly, the jury said the insurance company must pay Dickson $500,000 for his anguish. We should all have this kind of anguish. Keep scratching. There are more... 4TH PLACE : Jerry Williams, of Little Rock, Arkansas, garnered 4th Place in the Stella's when he was awarded $14,500 plus medical expenses after being bitten on the butt by his next door neighbor's beagle even though the beagle was on a chain in its owner's fenced yard. Williams did not get as much as he asked for because the jury believed the beagle might have been provoked at the time of the butt bite because Williams had climbed over the fence into the yard and repeatedly shot the dog with a pellet gun. Grrrrr ... Scratch, scratch.

3RD PLACE : Third place goes to Amber Carson of Lancaster , Pennsylvania because a jury ordered a Philadelphia restaurant to pay her $113, 500 after she slipped on a spilled soft drink and broke her tailbone. The reason the soft drink was on the floor: Ms. Carson had thrown it at her boyfriend 30 seconds earlier during an argument. What ever happened to people being responsible for their own actions? Scratch, scratch, scratch. Hang in there; there are only two more Stellas to go... 2ND PLACE : Kara Walton, of Claymont, Delaware sued the owner of a night club in a nearby city because she fell from the bathroom window to the floor, knocking out her two front teeth. Even though Ms. Walton was trying to sneak through the ladies room window to avoid paying the $3.50 cover charge, the jury said the night club had to pay her $12,000....oh, yeah, plus dental expenses. Go figure. 1ST PLACE : (May I have a fanfare played on 50 kazoos please?) This year's runaway First Place Stella Award winner was Mrs. Merv Grazinski, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, who purchased a new 32-foot Winnebago motor home. On her first trip home from an OU football game, having driven onto the freeway, she set the cruise control at 70 mph and calmly left the driver's seat to go to the back of the Winnebago to make herself a sandwich. Not surprisingly, the motor home left the freeway, crashed and overturned. Also not surprisingly, Mrs. Grazinski sued Winnebago for not putting in the owner's manual that she couldn't actually leave the driver's seat while the cruise control was set. The Oklahoma jury awarded her, are you sitting down, $1,750,000 PLUS a new motor home. Winnebago actually changed their manuals as a result of this suit, just in case Mrs. Grazinski has any relatives who might also buy a motor home.

Facts of life
A father asks his 10-year-old son if he knows about the birds and the bees. "I don't want to know"! the child says, bursting into tears. "Promise me you won't tell me"! Confused, the father asks what's wrong. "Oh, dad," the boy sobs. "When I was six, I got the "There's no Santa' speech. At seven, I got the "There's no Easter Bunny' speech. When I was eight, you hit me with the "There's no tooth fairy' speech. If you're going to tell me that adults don't really fuck, I'll have nothing left to live for."

Abstain from Sex
A young couple wanted to join the synagogue, the Rabbi told them, "We have a special requirement for new member couples. You must abstain from sex for one whole month". The couple agreed, but after two-and-a-half weeks returned to the synagogue. When the Rabbi ushered them into his office, the wife was crying and the husband was obviously very depressed. "You are back so soon... Is there a problem"?, the Rabbi inquired. "We are terribly ashamed to admit that we did not manage to abstain from sex for the required month". the young man replied sadly. The Rabbi asked him what happened. "Well, the first week was difficult... However, we managed to abstain through sheer willpower. The second week was terrible, but with the use of prayer, we managed to abstain. However, the third week was unbearable. We tried cold showers, prayer, reading from the Bible...anything to keep our minds off carnal thoughts. One afternoon my wife reached for a can of paint and dropped it. When she bent over to pick it up, I was overcome with lust and I just had my way with her right then and there. It was lustful, loud, passionate sex. It lasted for over an hour and when we were done we were both drenched in sweat", admitted the man, shamefacedly. The Rabbi lowered his head and said sternly, "You understand this means you will not be welcome in our synagogue". "We know", said the young man, hanging his head. "We're not welcome at Home Depot either".

Funniest Joke in the World
Funniest Joke in the World: Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other man pulls out his cell phone and calls emergency services. He gasps to the operator: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator in a calm, soothing voice replies: "Take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a shot is heard. Back on the phone, the hunter says, "OK, now what?" Runner Up: PATIENT: "Doctor, I've got a strawberry stuck up my bum." DOCTOR: "I've got some cream for that." Another Runner Up: A patient says, "Doctor, last night I made a Freudian slip. I was having dinner with my mother-in-law and wanted to say: 'Could you please pass the butter?' But instead I said: 'You silly cow, you have completely ruined my life." Still Another Runner Up: A man and a friend are playing golf one day. One of the guys is about to chip onto the green when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the course. He stops in mid-swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes, and bows down in prayer. His friend says: "Wow! That is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You are truly a kind man." The other man replies, "Yeah, well, we were married 35 years." One More Runner Up: TEXAN: "Where are you from?" HARVARD GRAD: "I come from a place where we do not end our sentences with prepositions." TEXAN: "OK - where are you from, jackass?" And Still Another Runner Up: A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The bus driver says: "That's the ugliest baby that I've ever seen." The woman goes to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her, "That driver just insulted me!" The man says, "You go right up there and tell him off! Go ahead, I'll hold your monkey for you." Amazing - Another Runner Up:


When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300 degrees Celsius. The Russians used a pencil. Last Runner Up: A dog went to a telegram office, took out a blank form and wrote: "Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof." The clerk examined the paper and politely told the dog, "There are only nine words here. You could send another 'Woof' for the same price." The dog replied, "But that would make no sense at all!"

Air Traffic Controller Talk These conversations are said to be real.
Tower: "Delta 351, you have traffic at 10 o'clock, 6 miles!" Delta 351: "Give us another hint! We have digital watches!" Tower: "TWA 2341, for noise abatement turn right 45 Degrees." TWA 2341: "We are at 35,000 feet. How much noise can we make up here?" Tower: "Sir, have you ever heard the noise a 747 makes when it hits a 727?"


From an unknown aircraft waiting in a very long takeoff queue: "I'm bored!" Ground Traffic Control: "Last aircraft transmitting, identify yourself immediately!" Unknown aircraft: "I said I was bored, not stupid!" Tower: "United 329 heavy, your traffic is a Fokker, one o'clock, three miles, eastbound." United 329: "Approach, I've always wanted to say this: I've got the little Fokker in sight." A DC-10 had come in a little hot and thus had an exceedingly long roll out after touching down. San Jose Tower noted: "American 751, make a hard right turn at the end of the runway, if you are able. If you are not able, take the Guadalupe exit off Highway 101, make a right at the lights and return to the airport." A military pilot called for a priority landing because his single-engine jet fighter was running "a bit peaked." Air Traffic Control told the fighter pilot that he was number two, behind a B-52 that had one engine shut down. "Ah," the fighter pilot remarked, "The dreaded seven-engine approach." Allegedly, a Pan Am 727 flight waiting for start clearance in Munich overheard the following -Lufthansa (in German): "Ground, what is our start clearance time?" Ground (in English): "If you want an answer you must speak in English." Lufthansa (in English): "I am a German, flying a German airplane, in Germany. Why must I speak English?" Unknown voice from another plane (in a beautiful British accent): "Because you lost the bloody war." Tower: "Eastern 702, cleared for takeoff, contact Departure on frequency 124.7" Eastern 702: "Tower, Eastern 702 switching to Departure. By the way, after we lifted off we saw some kind of dead animal on the far end of the runway." Tower: "Continental 635, cleared for takeoff behind Eastern 702, contact Departure on frequency 124.7. Did you copy that report from Eastern 702?" Continental 635: "Continental 635, cleared for takeoff, Roger; and yes, we copied Eastern and we've already notified our caterers." One day the pilot of a Cherokee 180 was told by the tower to hold short of the active runway while a DC-8 landed. The DC-8 landed, rolled out, turned around, and taxied back past the Cherokee. Some quickwitted comedian in the DC-8 crew got on the radio and said, "What a cute little plane. Did you make it all by yourself?" The Cherokee pilot, not about to let the insult go by, came back with a real zinger: "I made it out of DC-8 parts. Another landing like yours and I'll have enough parts for another one." Allegedly the German air controllers at Frankfurt Airport are renowned as a short-tempered lot. They, it is alleged, not only expect one to know one's gate parking location, but how to get there without any assistance from them. So it was with some amusement that we (a Pan Am 747) listened to the following exchange between Frankfurt ground control and a British Airways 747, call sign Speedbird 206. Speedbird 206: "Frankfurt, Speedbird 206 clear of active runway." Ground: "Speedbird 206. Taxi to gate Alpha One-Seven." The BA 747 pulled onto the main taxiway and slowed to a stop. Ground: "Speedbird, do you not know where you are going?" Speedbird 206: "Stand by, Ground, I'm looking up our gate location now." Ground (with quite arrogant impatience): "Speedbird 206, have you not been to Frankfurt before?" Speedbird 206 (coolly): "Yes, twice in 1944, but it was dark,...... and I didn't land." Allegedly, while taxiing at London's Gatwick Airport, the crew of a US Air flight departing for Ft. Lauderdale made a wrong turn and came nose to nose with a United 727. An irate female ground controller lashed out at the US Air crew, screaming: "US Air 2771, where the hell are you going?! I told you to turn right onto Charlie taxiway! You turned right on Delta! Stop right there. I know it's difficult for you to tell the difference between C and D, but get it right!" Continuing her rage to the embarrassed crew, she was now shouting hysterically: "God! Now you've screwed everything up! It'll take forever to sort this out! You stay right there and don't move till I tell you to! You can expect progressive taxi instructions in about half an hour and I want you to go exactly where I tell you, when I tell you, and how I tell you! You got that, US Air 2771?" US Air 2771: "Yes, ma'am," the humbled crew responded. Naturally, the ground control communications frequency fell terribly silent after the verbal bashing of US Air 2771. Nobody wanted to chance engaging the irate ground controller in her current state of mind. Tension in every cockpit out around Gatwick was definitely running high. Just then an unknown pilot broke the silence and


keyed his microphone, asking: "Wasn't I married to you once?"

(thanks to Shane) They say a smile is a gift which is free to the giver and precious to the recipient. But giving the finger is free, too, and I find it much more personal and sincere. There are 10 types of people in this world. Those that understand binary, and those that don't. "Doc, I can't stop singing 'The Green, Green Grass of Home.'" "That sounds like Tom Jones Syndrome."

One cannibal says to another, "I hate my mother-in-law." Would a police van filled with prisoners that collides with a cement truck result in hardened criminals? (thanks to Charley) The other cannibal passed his mother in the woods. There is a new wing in the Denver hospital named after famous skier Picabo Street. It's the Picabo ICU. If you wear a "Guess" shirt, is the answer on the back of the shirt? (thanks to Charley) A woman came in last in the 100 yard breaststroke at the local swim meet. She later complained, "The other girls were using their hands!" My grandfather is hard of hearing. He needs to read lips. I don¶t mind him reading lips, but he uses a yellow highlighter. Two men were walking on the railroad tracks. One says to the other, "This is the longest stairway I've ever seen!" The other guy says, "Yeah, and these low handrails are killing my back."

One says to the other, "What do you think about this mad cow disease?" The other cow says, "What do I care, I'm a helicopter!" I always look for a woman who has a tattoo. I see a woman with a tattoo, and I¶m thinking, okay, here¶s a gal who¶s capable of making a decision she¶ll regret in the future. If a man is in the forest and there is no woman around, is he still wrong? I bought a box of animal crackers and it said on it "Do not eat if seal is broken." So I opened up the box, and sure enough... I went on a fishing trip, but only caught three fish. I figure the fish cost me about $400 each. It's a good thing I didn't catch more, I couldn't afford them.


A guy says to a dentist, "$90 to pull a tooth? That's only about one minute's work!" The dentist says, "I can make it last longer if you'd like." A nun says to Mother Superior, "There's a case of syphilis in the convent!" Mother Superior says, "That's great, I was getting tired of the Chablis." I dated a lawyer until she said, "Stop, and/or I'll slap your face!" A man thinks he'll be charitable and says to a homeless man, "Paint my porch out back, and I'll give you $100".

A small redneck Wild Animal Park had acquired a very rare species of gorilla. Within a few weeks, the female gorilla became very ³in the mood´, and difficult to handle. Upon examination, the park veterinarian determined the problem. The gorilla was in heat. To make matters worse, there were no male gorillas of the species available. While reflecting on their problem, the park administrators noticed Ed, a part-time redneck intern, responsible for cleaning the animals¶ cages. Ed, like most rednecks, had little sense, but possessed ample ability to satisfy a female of ANY species. So, the park administrators thought they might have a solution. Ed was approached with a proposition. Would he be willing to have sex with the gorilla for $500? Ed showed some interest, but said he would have to think the matter over carefully. The following day, Ed announced that he would accept their offer, but only under three conditions. ³First,´ he said, ³I don¶t want to have to kiss her. Secondly, you must never tell anyone about

this.´ The park administration quickly agreed to these conditions, so they asked what was his third condition. ³Well,´ said Ed, ³You gotta give me another week to come up with the $500.´

Drunk? You know you're a heavy drinker...

He's got a lot of willpower. He's finally given up trying to stop drinking. (thanks to Shane) She hates the sight of liquor. That's why she drinks it so fast. He's on the drinking man's diet. Now he's a skinny drunk. She's getting so high she's soon going to need a net under her. He deducts his booze costs because he drinks to others' health so often. Occasionally, she is held up going home. That's the only way she gets there. He believes in a balanced diet; a drink in each hand. She never plays "Spin the Bottle". She won't let go of it! His nickname is "Truck" because he always has a load on. It only takes one drink to make her drunk. She's not sure if it's the eighth or ninth drink, however. He only drinks on days ending in "Y". She only drinks when she has company or is alone. He is a public spirited person. He drinks spirits in public. She knows that alcohol is a slow poison. She doesn't mind, she's not in a hurry. When he's working overtime, he gets time and a fifth. When there is a nip in the air, she tries to drink it. If it wasn't for pretzels, he'd be on a liquid diet. In bars across the nation, she's one of the unsteadiest customers. He's the nicest guy on two feet. If he could stay there. When she catches a cold, she buys a bottle of whisky. In no time, it's gone. The whisky, not the cold. He's not one to do things halfway. He does them in fifths. When she comes back from lunch, she's so loaded she has to take the freight elevator.

Because you're hot! Your body's name must be Visa, because it's everywhere I want to be. Can I buy you a drink, or do you just want the money?


If you were a new hamburger at McDonald's, you would be McGorgeous. Oh, I'm sorry, I thought that was a Braille nametag. You might not be the best looking girl here, but beauty is only a light switch away. Without my glasses, you couldn't pass for a female. You be the tree, and I'll wrap you like a Koala. I can't find my puppy, can you help me find him? I think he went into this cheap motel room. Want to play conductor? You be the engineer and I'll go choo choo. What do you like for breakfast? Can I borrow a quarter? I want to call my mom and tell her I just met the girl of my dreams. I want to call your mother and thank her. Your daddy must be a thief, because he stole the sparkle of the stars and put it in your eyes. That outfit would look great crumpled up on the floor at the foot of my bed. Let's go to my place and do the things I'll tell everyone we did anyway. Do your legs hurt from running through my dreams all night? Did it hurt when you fell from heaven? My name is [your name]. That's so you know what to scream. Your daddy must have been a baker, 'cause you've got a nice set of buns. (Look at his / her shirt label) When they say, "What are you doing?", you say, "Checking to see if you were made in heaven." There must be something wrong with my eyes, because I can't take them off you. All those curves, and me with no brakes. If I told you had a beautiful body, would you hold it against me? Is it hot in here or is it just you? Do you know how to use a whip? Can you give me your heart?


If I could rearrange the alphabet, I'd put U and I together. I lost my phone number. Can I have yours? I hope you know CPR, 'cause you take my breath away. You look just like Joan Rivers. Your name must be Daisy, because I have the incredible urge to plant you right here! I'm no Fred Flintstone, but I'll still make your bed rock.


Amazing Useless Facts (and the actual facts)
I¶m getting sick of these lists of ³amazing facts´ that are complete baloney. In the interest of keeping my readers from being uneducated and gullible, I decided to whip up this list references are linked to. This is the latest list I received, verbatim, followed by the facts that contradict the ³facts´ (or at least show you why the fact isn¶t really all that amazing):

I am. is the shortest complete sentence in the English language.

³Go,´ used in the imperative mode is the shortest sentence in the English language (especially because you can use body language as a compliment referring to ³there´ or ³away´). ³I am,´ is not a complete sentence. ³Am,´ would need a compliment to turn it into a predicate (i.e. ³I am stupid´) - you can¶t use body language like you can with ³Go´. If you don¶t like using modes, try ³I go.´ (Edit: Okay, whiz kids who think I¶m wrong, a sentence needs a subject and a complete predicate - which can be implied. ³I am´ is a sentence just like ³Q´ is a sentence when used as a response - like, ³What letter comes after the letter P?´. If you say it to some random stranger on the street and they think you make sense, then it is probably a sentence. Imagine going up to somebody and telling them ³Go!´ They would understand that you want them to leave. If you walked up to someone on the street and said, ³I am!´ they would likely wonder what you were responding to, because it is not a complete sentence. I¶m not going to keep repeating myself for the stupid people, so I found some references for them to go look at. Reference 1. Reference 2. Reference 3) If you want to argue it, I will probably make fun of you. I am not the nicest blogger in the world.

More people are killed by donkeys annually than are killed in plane crashes.

There are more donkey related injuries than airplane deaths per year, but there are no statistics, nor has there ever been, to back up more donkey related deaths. There are roughly 1,200 airplane deaths per year.

The name of all the continents end with the same letter that they start with.

³South America´ and ³North America.´ Does that need a complete sentence or is it obvious enough?

The word lethologica describes the state of not being able to remember the word you want.

³Aphasia´ could just as easily be used here, given the generalized definition provided.

TYPEWRITER is the longest word that can be made using the letters on only one row of the keyboard.

What about pepperroot, pepperwort, perpetuity, pirouetter, prerequire, pretorture, proprietor, repertoire, repetitory? I¶m sure we can think of even more words, and I¶m only using the top row of keys on a QWERTY keyboard for those ones.



A snail can sleep for 3 years.

Snails don¶t ³sleep´ - they enter a state of torpor - no brain function and the appearance of being dead. Believe it or not, I actually raised snails for a season - even got 3rd place at the Great Folsom Snail Race.

The longest word in the English language is 1909 letters long and it refers to a distinct part of DNA.

The word referred to is LATIN and GREEK, not English. It is only used by a very small group of scientists, too, and would not appear in any English dictionary. But maybe they are actually trying to say it is the longest word in the world, regardless of language« a distinction that, with four more letters, already belongs to: Methionylglutaminylarginyltyrosy lglutamylserylleucylphenylalanylalanylglutaminy lleucyllysylglutamylarginyllysylglutamylglycyla lanylphenylalanylvalylprolyphenylalanYlvalythre onylleucylglycylaspartylprolylglycylisoleucylg lutamylglutaminylsErylleucyllysylisoleucy laspartylthreonylleucylIsoleucylglutamy lalanylglycylalanylasparthlalanylleucylg lutamylleucylglycylisoleucylprolylphenylalanylse Rylaspartylprolylleucylalanylaspartylglycylp RolylthreOnylisoleucylglutaminylasPfraginylal anylthreonylleucylarfinylalanylphenylalanylalany lalanylglycylvalythreonylprolylalanylglutaminy lcysteinylphenylalanylglutamylmethionylleucy lalanylleuOylisoleucylarginylglutaminy llysyhistidylprolylthreonylisoleucylproly lisoleucylglycylleucylmethionyltyrosylalany lasparaginylleucylvalylphenylalanylasparaginy llysyglycylisoleucylaspartylglutamylphenylalany lthrosylalanylglutaminylcsteinylglutamyllysylva lylglycylvalylaspartylserylvalylleucylvalylalny laspartylvalylprolylvalylglUtaminylglutamylsery lalanylprolylphenylalanylarginylglutaminylalany lalanylleucylarginylhistidylasparaginyvalylalany lprolylisoleucylprolylisoleucylphenylalanylisoleucy lphenylalanylisoleucylcysteinylprolylprolylaspartylalany laspartylaspartylaspartylleucylleucylarginy lglutaminylisoleucylalanylseryltyrosylglycy larginylglycyltyrosylthreonyltyrOsylleucyl leucylserylarginylalanylglycylvalylthreony lglycylalanylglutamYlasparainylarginylalany lalanylleucylprolylleucylasparaginylhistidy 70

Cats have over one hundred vocal sounds, dogs only have about ten.

Blatantly false. Somebody must have spent too much time hanging out with a very quiet dog. Try going on YouTube and looking up ³talking dog.´ A dog can make fewer vocal sounds than a cat, but far more than ten.

Feb 1865 is the only month in recorded history not to have a full moon.

February 1865 did in fact have a full moon, though there was no full moon in the Februaries of 1866, 1885, 1915, 1934, 1961, and 1999. Go figure.

Nutmeg is extremely poisonous if injected intravenously.

Almost any spice, when injected in the body, is extremely poisonous. Try shooting up some cardamom. I wonder if this was intended to imply how poisonous nutmeg is when taken in large quantities, orally? It has been shown to cause extremely intense hallucinations.

The strongest muscle in the body is the TONGUE.

I don¶t know where people came up with this one. It has no basis in fact. Despite the fact that the tongue is made up of 16 seperate muscles, each fiber of a muscle, no matter where, exerts about 0.3 micronewtons of force. Gram per gram (compressed muscle), the myometrial layer in a woman¶s uterus (yes, it is a muscle) is the strongest muscle a human has.

It¶s impossible to sneeze with your eyes open.

I have sneezed with my eyes open. It is not natural, but it is easily done. And no, your eyeballs won¶t pop out. They even did a debunking of it on Mythbusters.

Polar bears are left-handed.

Most polar bears are right handed. The best explanation for the confusion I could find was that they use their dominant paw to cover their nose (not a likely explanation at all, however - see

comments from Des and Gryndyl), to blend in while waiting beside their prey. They catch their prey (primarily seals) by either biting their heads or swatting at them (with their left paw) to knock them onto the ice when they surface. Some of the studies on the subject can be very misleading because it appears that polar bears always attack with their left paw, but during casual interactions they revert to their right. I suspect the true reason is something along the lines of them requiring stability when attacking and thus, keeping their footing with the right paw is more effective.

The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds, that makes the catfish rank #1 for animal having the most taste buds.

Catfish do have a lot of taste buds, but most of them do not transmit anything. They are completely non-functional. It is like bragging about having the most cars of anybody in Texas« but it is only because you own the garbage dump where they drop off wrecked cars.

Elephants are the only animals that can t jump.

First, I¶m going to assume that there was a typo here and they meant to say mammals, since fish, snakes, eels, brine shrimp, etc., can¶t jump. But even among mammals, I¶ve never heard of a hippo being able to jump. How about a guinea pig? They can barely hop with the limited joints in their back legs. Sloths? (Edit: according to some comments I¶ve received, I¶m wrong because jumping can just mean ³to be full of activity or bustling´ - just to clarify, even an elephant could have this attributed to them, despite their inability to rapidly extend their extremities in order to gain enough vertical velocity to significantly propel them from the ground. The ³fact´ I criticize here is wrong, regardless of any of these arguments.)

Peanuts are one of the ingredients of dynamite.

This is as true as saying gasoline is made with Stegosauruses¶ remains. Extracted peanut oil could be used to make glycerin that could be further processed to make nitroglycerin, and nitroglycerin is one of the ingredients commonly used for making dynamite, but peanuts are hardly a required ingredient.

A shark is the only fish that can blink with both eyes.

Pufferfish can blink. Last I checked, that was a fish - I mean, it is part of their name. Most sharks actually roll their eyes back in their head, rather than blinking, too.

Two-thirds of the world s eggplant is grown in New Jersey.

New Jersey produces about 0.1% of the world¶s eggplant, by the numbers. They produce roughly half the amount that comes out of California, alone.

The longest one-syllable word in the English language is screeched.


Scrootched is a word. Look it up (it is under the word ³scrootch,´ a variant of ³scrooch´). It is longer than screeched, but still one syllable.

No word in the English language rhymes with month, orange, silver or purple.

Hunth, a word meaning a hundred thousand. Sporange as a variant of sporangium per Webster¶s Third Unabridged and the Oxford English Dictionary. Chilver as an ewe lamb per the Oxford English Dictionary. Hirple, meaning to limp. Look them up. They are, in fact, words (though hirple is a Scottish English word, so it might not be in everybody¶s dictionary).

There are only four words in the English language which end in - dous : tremendous, horrendous, stupendous, and hazardous.

How about amadous, apodous, decapodous, iodous, nodous, nonhazardous, palladous, ultrahazardous, and vanadous? Yep, they are all words.

A cat has 32 muscles in each ear.

A cat has 0 muscles in each ear. They do have about 30 muscles at the base of their ears. Am I being petty?

A dragonfly has a lifespan of 24 hours.

A dragonfly¶s lifespan is up to 6 months.

A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds.

A goldfish can remember an event for about 3 months. See multiple studies on this for more info. It is pretty interesting.

In England, the Speaker of the House is not allowed to speak.

The correct term is Speaker of the House of Commons, and they are allowed to speak, but are required to take an impartial position and can¶t argue one side over another. Their position is a little bit similar to a judge¶s at a trial.

There are 336 dimples on a regulation golf ball.

Regulation size golf balls can have anywhere from 300-500 dimples.

You can t lick your own elbow.

If you are flexible or have a long tongue, yes you can. I happen to have a very long tongue, and can almost reach it. There are groups of people on YouTube that post videos of themselves doing this very thing.


Why I Will Never Have a Girlfriend
Why don't I have a girlfriend?

This is a question that practically every male has asked himself at one point or another in his life. Unfortunately, there is rarely a hard and fast answer to the query. Many men try to reason their way through the dilemma nonetheless, often reaching a series of ridiculous explanations, each more self-deprecating than the last: "Is it because I'm too shy, and not aggressive enough? Is it my opening lines? Am I a boring person? Am I too fat or too thin? Or am I simply ugly and completely unattractive to women?" When all other plausible explanations have been discounted, most fall back on the time-honoured conclusion that "there must be Something WrongŒ with me" before resigning themselves to lives of perpetual chastity.[2] Not the author, though. I, for one, refuse to spend my life brooding over my lack of luck with women. While I'll be the first to admit that my chances of ever entering into a meaningful relationship with someone special are practically non-existent, I staunchly refuse to admit that it has anything to do with some inherent problem with me. Instead, I am convinced that the situation can be readily explained in purely scientific terms, using nothing more than demographics and some elementary statistical calculus. Lest anyone suspect that my standards for women are too high, let me allay those fears by enumerating in advance my three criteria for the match. First, the potential girlfriend must be approximately my age²let's say 21 plus or minus three or four years. Second, the girl must be beautiful (and I use that term all-encompassingly to refer to both inner and outer beauty). Third, she must also be reasonably intelligent²she doesn't have to be Mensa material, but the ability to carry on a witty, insightful argument would be nice. So there they are²three simple demands, which I'm sure everyone will agree are anything but unreasonable. That said, I now present my demonstration of why the probability of finding a suitable candidate fulfilling the three above-noted requirements is so small as to be practically impossible²in other words, why I will never have a girlfriend. I shall endeavour to make this proof as rigorous as the available data permits. And I should note, too, that there will be no statistical trickery involved here; I have cited all my sources and provided all relevant calculations[3] in case anyone wishes to conduct their own independent review. Let's now take a look at the figures.
Number of people on Earth (in 1998): 5 592 830 000[4]

We start with the largest demographic in which I am interested²namely, the population of this planet. That is not to say I'm against the idea of interstellar romance, of course; I just don't assess the prospect of finding myself a nice Altairian girl as statistically significant. Now anyway, the latest halfway-reliable figures we have for Earth's population come from the United States Census Bureau's 1999 World Population Profile (WP/98). Due presumably to the time involved

in compiling and processing census statistics, said report's data is valid only as of 1998, so later on we'll be making some impromptu adjustments to bring the numbers up to date.
who are female: 2 941 118 000[5]

I'd've thought that, given the title of this essay, this criterion goes without saying. In case anyone missed it, though, I am looking for exclusively female companionship. Accordingly, roughly half of the Earth's population must be discounted. Sorry, guys.
in "developed" countries: 605 601 000[5]

We now further restrict the geographical area of interest to so-called "first-world countries". My reasons for doing so are not motivated out of contempt for those who are economically disadvantaged, but rather by simple probability. My chances of meeting a babe from Bhutan or a goddess from Ghana, either in person or on the Internet, are understandably low. In fact, I will most likely spend nearly my entire life living and working in North America, Europe, and Australia, so it is to these types of regions that the numbers have been narrowed.
currently (in 2000) aged 18 to 25: 65 399 083[4][5]

Being neither a pedophile nor a geriatrophile, I would like to restrict my search for love to those whose age is approximately equal to my own. This is where things get a bit tricky, for two reasons: first, the census data is nearly two years old, and second, the "population by age" tables in WP/98 are not separated into individual ages but are instead quantized into "15±19" (of whom there are 39 560 000) and "20±44" (population 215 073 000). Women aged 15 to 19 in 1998 will be aged 17 to 21 in 2000; in this group, I'm interested in dating those 18 or older, so, assuming the "15±19" girls' ages are uniformly distributed, we have

Similarly, of 1998's "20±44" category, there are now

females within my chosen age limit. The sum, 66 059 680, represents the total number of females aged 18 to 25 in developed countries in 2000. Unfortunately, roughly 1% of these girls will have died since the census was taken;[6] thus, the true number of so-far eligible bachelorettes is 65 399 083.
who are beautiful: 1 487 838


Personal attraction, both physically and personality-wise, is an important instigator of any relationship. Of course, beauty is a purely subjective trait whose interpretation may vary from person to person. Luckily it is not necessary for me to define beauty in this essay except to state that for any given beholder, it will probably be normally distributed amongst the population.[7] Without going into the specifics of precisely which traits I admire, I will say that for a girl to be considered really beautiful to me, she should fall at least two standard deviations above the norm. From basic statistics theory, the area to the left of the normal curve at z = 2 is

and so it is this number with which we multiply our current population pool.
and intelligent: 236 053

Again, intelligence can mean different things to different people, yet I am once more relieved of making any explanation by noting that it, like most other characteristics, has a notionally normal distribution across the population. Let's assume that I will settle for someone a mere one standard deviation above the normal; in that case, a further

of the population must be discounted.
and not already committed: 118 027

I could find no hard statistics on the number of above-noted girls who are already married, engaged, or otherwise committed to a significant other, but informal observation and anecdotal evidence leads me to believe that the proportion is somewhere around 50%. (Fellow unattached males will no doubt have also noticed a preponderance of girls legitimately offering, "Sorry, I already have a boyfriend" as an excuse not to go on a date.) For reasons of morality (and perhaps too self-preservation), I'm not about to start hitting on girls who have husbands and boyfriends. Accordingly, that portion of the female population must also be considered off-limits.
and also might like me: 18 726

Naturally, finding a suitable girl who I really like is no guarantee that she'll like me back. Assuming, as previously mentioned, that personal attractiveness is normally distributed, there is a mere 50% chance that any given female will consider me even marginally attractive. In practice, however, people are unlikely to consider pursuing a relationship with someone whose looks and personality just barely suffice. Let's make the rather conservative assumption, then, that a girl would go out with someone if and only if they were at least one standard deviation above her idea of average. In that case, referring to our previous calculation, only 15.8655% of

females would consider someone with my physical characteristics and personality acceptable as a potential romantic partner.

It is here, at a pool of 18 726 acceptable females, that we end our statistical analysis. At first glance, a datable population of 18 726 may not seem like such a low number, but consider this: assuming I were to go on a blind date with a new girl about my age every week, I would have to date for 3493 weeks before I found one of the 18 726. That's very nearly 67 years. As a North American male born in the late 1970s, my life expectancy is probably little more than 70 years, so we can safely say that I will be quite dead before I find the proverbial girl of my dreams. Come to think of it, she'll probably be dead too.

So there you have it, my friends finally, a cogent, scientific, non-self-deprecating argument for why I will never have a girlfriend. That said, if you happen to be a girl deluded enough to think that you and I have a chance together, feel free to drop me a line, but I warn you, you face odds of 157 060 to 1. I wouldn't bother if I were you. Update (2000-04-01): My sarcastic pleas for some e-mail have finally been answered. Take a look at this letter from a hysterical female reader, which I think perfectly demonstrates the point of this entire essay. (I think the fact that she's a WebTV user explains a lot in fact, I was sure this e-mail was an April Fool's joke until I noticed the return address.)

Endnotes and references 1. 2. This paper was written when the author was at Griffith University, Australia. After a short period of brooding, of course, these males will eventually come to the realization that the real reason they were never able to get a girlfriend is that they were too discriminating with their attentions. They will consequently return to the dating scene, entering a sequence of blasé relationships with mediocre girls for whom they don't really care, until they finally marry one out of fear of spending the rest of their lives alone. I am convinced that this behaviour is the real reason for today's alarmingly high divorce rate. Due to rounding, figures cited may not add up exactly. 4.0 4.1 U.S. Bureau of the Census, Report WP/98, World Population Profile: 1998, Table A-3. Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1999. 5.0 5.1 5.2 U.S. Bureau of the Census, Report WP/98, World Population Profile: 1998, Table A-7. Washington, DC: U.S. Government Printing Office, 1999. WP/98 gives the annual death rate for developed countries as 10 per 1000, but does not list death rates per age group. Presumably, the death rate graphs as a bathtub curve, but in absence of any numbers supporting this hypothesis, and for the sake of simplicity, I will conservatively estimate the death rate among this age group to be 1% biennially. 77

3. 4. 5. 6.


Despite my efforts to research the matter, I could find no data on the distribution of beauty, either outer or inner, amongst the population. Perhaps attractiveness, being a largely subjective trait, does not lend itself to quantification. It is not unreasonable, however, to assume that like most other traits, it has a normal distribution. Indeed, this assumption seems to be backed up by informal observation and judgment in any reasonably large group of people, most of them will be average-looking, and a tiny minority either exceedingly beautiful or exceedingly ugly.

Saturday morning I got up early, quietly dressed, made my lunch, grabbed the dog, and slipped quietly into the garage. I hooked up the boat up to the truck, and proceeded to back out into a torrential downpour. The wind was blowing 50 mph, so I pulled back into the garage, turned on the radio, and discovered that the weather would be bad all day.I went back into the house, quietly undressed, and slipped back into bed. I cuddled up to my wife¶s back, now with a different anticipation, and whispered, ³The weather out there is terrible.´My loving wife of 10 years replied, ³Can you believe my stupid husband is out fishing in that?´ And that¶s how the fight started«

Why Americans Should Never Be Allowed To Travel
The following are actual stories provided by travel agents:

I had someone ask for an aisle seats so that his or her hair wouldn't get messed up by being near the window. A client called in inquiring about a package to Hawaii. After going over all the cost info, she asked, "Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train to Hawaii?" I got a call from a woman who wanted to go to Capetown. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information when she interrupted me with "I'm not trying to make you look stupid, but Capetown is in Massachusetts. "Without trying to make her look like the stupid one, I calmly explained, "Capecod is in Massachusetts, Capetown is in Africa." Her response ... click. A man called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando. He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that is not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state. He replied, "Don't lie to me. I looked on the map and Florida is a very thin state." I got a call from a man who asked, "Is it possible to see England from Canada?" I said, "No." He said "But they look so close on the map." Another man called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas. When I pulled up the reservation, I noticed he had a 1-hour lay over in Dallas. When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, "I heard Dallas was a big airport, and I need a car to drive between the gates to save time." A nice lady just called. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:20am and got into Chicago at 8:33am. I tried to explain that Michigan was an hour ahead of llinois, but she could not understand the concept of time zones. Finally I told her the plane went very fast, and she bought that! A woman called and asked, "Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know who's luggage belongs to who?" I said, "No, why do you ask?" She replied, "Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a tag on my luggage that said FAT, and I'm overweight, is there any connection?" After putting her on hold for a minute while I "looked into it" (I was actually laughing) I came back and explained the city


code for Fresno is FAT, and that the airline was just putting a destination tag on her luggage. I just got off the phone with a man who asked, "How do I know which plane to get on?" I asked him what exactly he meant, which he replied, "I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these darn planes have numbers on them." A woman called and said, "I need to fly to Pepsi-cola on one of those computer planes." I asked if she meant to fly to Pensacola on a commuter plane. She said, "Yeah, whatever." A businessman called and had a question about the documents he needed in order to fly to China. After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded him he needed a visa. "Oh no I don't, I've been to China many times and never had to have one of those." I double checked and sure enough, his stay required a visa. When I told him this he said, "Look, I've been to China four times and every time they have accepted my American Express." A woman called to make reservations, "I want to go from Chicago to Hippopotamus, New York" The agent was at a loss for words. Finally, the agent: "Are you sure that's the name of the town?" "Yes, what flights do you have?" replied the customer. After some searching, the agent came back with, "I'm sorry, ma'am, I've looked up every airport code in the country and can't find a Hippopotamus anywhere." The customer retorted, "Oh don't be silly. Everyone knows where it is. Check your map!" The agent scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered, "You don't mean Buffalo, do you?" "That's it! I knew it was a big animal!"

If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that word would be meetings . 3. There is a very fine line between hobby and mental illness. 4. People who want to share their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them. 5.

You should not confuse your career with your life. 7. No matter what happens, somebody will find a way to take it too seriously. 8. When trouble arises and things look bad, there is always one individual who perceives a solution and is willing to take command. Very often, that individual is crazy. 9.

The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to annoy people who are not in them. 18. A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice person. 19.

Official Apology Notice


An actual conversation that occurred between a customer and a Word perfect support rep (who got fired for this btw) "Ridge Hall computer assistance; may I help you?" "Yes, well, I'm having trouble with WordPerfect." "What sort of trouble?" "Well I was just typing along, and all of a sudden the words went away" "Went away?" "They disappeared" "Hmm. So what does your screen look like now?" "Nothing" "Nothing?" "It's blank; it won't accept anything when I type." "Are you still in WordPerfect or did you get out?" "How do I tell?" "Can you see the C: prompt of the screen?" "What's a sea-prompt?" >"Never mind can you move your cursor around the screen?" "There isn't any cursor: I told you, it won't accept anything I type" "Does your monitor have a power indicator?" "What's a monitor?" "It's the thing with the screen on it that looks like a TV. Does it have a little light that tells you when it's on?" "I don't know?" "Well, then look on the back of the monitor and find where the power cord goes into it. Can you see that?" "Yes, I think so" "Great. Follow the cord to the plug, and tell me if it's plugged into the wall." "Yes it is" "When you were behind the monitor, did you notice that there were two cables plugged into the back of it, not just one?" "No" "Well, there are. I need you to look back there again and find the other cable." "Okay, here it is" "Follow it for me, and tell me if it's plugged securely into the back of your computer" "I can't reach it" "Uh huh. Well, can you see if it is?" "No" "Even if you maybe put your knee on something and lean way over?" "Oh, it's not because I don't have the right angle - it's because it's dark" "Dark?" "Yes the office light is off, and the only light I have is coming in from the window" "Well, turn on the office light then." "I can't."

"No? Why not?" "Because there's a power failure" "A power.... A power failure? Aha, Okay, we've got it licked now. Do you still have the boxes and manuals and packing stuff your computer came in?" "Well, yes I keep them in the closet" "Good. Go get them, and unplug your system and pack it up just like it was when you got it. Then take it back to the store you bought it from." "Really? Is it that bad?" "Yes, I'm afraid it is." "Well, all right then, I suppose. What do I tell them?" "Tell them you're too f***ing stupid to own a computer"

Just a few more Homer Simpson's Words of Wisdom
When will I learn? The answers to life's problems aren't at the bottom of a bottle - they're on TV! Bingo! I love that game, but I can't remember what to say when you win. Ah, beer. The cause of and the solution to all of life's problems. What's the point of going out? We're just going to wind up back here anyway. Lisa, vampires are make believe, like elves, gremlins, and Eskimos. Save me, Jeebus! Facts are meaningless - you could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true! I'm not impressed easily. Wow! A blue car! Well, crying isn't gonna bring him back, unless your tears smell like dog food. I don't hate your mother, I just won't be sad when she dies. How is education supposed to make me feel smarter? Besides, every time I learn something new, it pushes some old stuff out of my brain - remember when I took that home winemaking course, and I forgot how to drive? Who are you? Why am I here? I want answers now or I want them eventually! Maybe, just once, someone will call me 'Sir' without adding, 'You/re making a scene'. I'm a 'Spalding Gray' in a 'Rick Dees' world. there anything they can't do? Trying is the first step toward failure.


Because they're stupid, that's why. That's why everybody does everything! That's it! You people have stood in my way long enough. I'm going to clown college! You know those balls that they put on car antennas so you can find them in the parking lot? Those should be on every car! Marge, I'm going to miss you so much. And it's not just the sex! It's also the food preparation. When I look at the smiles on all the children's faces, I just know they're about to jab me with something. America's health care system is second only to Japan, Canada, Sweden, Great Britain, well...all of Europe. But you can thank your lucky stars we don't live in Paraguay! It's like something out of that "twilighty" show about that zone. Marge, you being a cop makes you the man - which makes me the woman; and I have no interest in that, besides occasionally wearing the underwear, which (as we discussed) is strictly a comfort thing. Whenever Marge turns on one of her "non-violent" programs, I take a walk. I go to a bar, I pound a few, then I stumble home in the mood for love... It's not easy to juggle a pregnant wife and a troubled child, but somehow I managed to fit in eight hours of TV a day. English? Who needs that? I'm never going to England! I like my beer cold, my TV loud, and my homosexuals flaming. Without our immigrants, who will kick our field goals, or train our white tigers? Oh no! What have I done? I smashed open my little boy's piggy bank, and for what? A few measly cents, not even enough to buy one beer. Wait a minute, lemme count and make sure...not even close! Beer - now THERE'S a temporary solution. How could you? Haven't you learned anything from that guy who gives those sermons at church? Captain What's His Name? We live in a society of laws! Why do you think I took you to all those "Police Academy" movies? For fun? Well, I didn't hear anybody laughing - did you? Except at that guy who made sound effects. Where was I? Oh yeah, stay out of my booze. Or what? You'll release the dogs? Or the bees? Or the dogs with bees in their mouth and when they bark they shoot bees at you? You're saying butt-kisser like it's a bad thing! Well, let's just call them, uh, Mr. X and Mrs. Y. So anyway, Mr. X would say, 'Marge, if this doesn't get your motor running, my name isn't Homer J. Simpson.'


I know what you're saying, Bart. When I was young, I wanted an electric football machine more than anything else in the world, and my parents bought it for me, and it was the happiest day of my life. Well, goodnight! Apu, you got any Skittle Brau? Never mind, just give me some Duff and a pack of Skittles. You'll have to speak up, I'm wearing a towel. Those guys were the suckiest bunch of sucks that ever sucked. Extended warranty? How can I lose? Mmmmmm - 52 slices of American cheese. Hey, I asked for ketchup - I'm eatin' salad here! When I first heard that Marge was joining the police academy, I thought it would be fun and zany, you know like that movie... "Spaceballs". But instead it was dark and disturbing, like that movie "Police Academy". I think Mr. Smithers picked me for my motivational skills. Everyone always says they have to work twice as hard when I'm around! Son, when you participate in sporting events - it's not whether you win or lose, it's how drunk you get. Marge, it takes two to lie. One to lie, and one to listen. Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand! I'm trying to fix your mother's camera. Easy, easy - Hmmm. I think I need a bigger drill. You tried your best and you failed miserably. The lesson is 'never try'. Oh, everything's too damned expensive these days. Like this Bible. It cost 15 bucks! And talk about a preachy book! Everybody's a sinner! Except this guy. God bless those pagans. Don't let Krusty's death get you down, boy. People die all the time, just like that. Why, you could wake up dead tomorrow! Well, good night! If you really want something in this life, you have to work for it. Now, quiet, they're about to announce the lottery numbers! You couldn't fool your mother on the foolingest day of your life if you had an electrified fooling machine. Go ahead and play the blues if it'll make you happy. I'm a white male, age 18 to 49. Everyone listens to me, no matter how dumb my suggestions are.


With $10,000, we'd be millionaires! We could buy all kinds of useful things like... love! All right, let's not panic. I'll make the money by selling one of my livers. I can get by with one. Woo hoo! 350 dollars! Now I can buy 70 transcripts of Nightline! Oh, people can come up with statistics to prove anything. 14% of people know that. When I held that gun in my hand, I felt a surge of power - like God must feel when he's holding a gun. You know boys, a nuclear reactor is a lot like women. You just have to read the manual and press the right button. I hope I didn't brain my damage! Nuts and gum, together at last! We'll die together, like a father and son should. Let us celebrate this agreement with the adding of chocolate to milk. We're gonna get a new TV. Twenty-one inch screen, realistic flesh tones, and a little cart so we can wheel it into the dining room on holidays! First you don't want me to get the pony, then you want me to take it back. Make up your mind! Son, a woman is a lot like a... a refrigerator! They're about six feet tall, 300 pounds. They make ice, and... um... Oh, wait a minute. Actually, a woman is more like a beer. Now what is a wedding? Well, Webster's dictionary describes a wedding as the process of removing weeds from one's garden. Now, Marge, don't discourage the boy. Weaseling out of things is what separates us from the animals. Except the weasel. You can't go wrong with cocktail weenies. They look as good as they taste. And they come in this delicious red sauce. It looks like ketchup, it tastes like ketchup, but brother, it ain't ketchup! I saw this movie about a bus that had to SPEED around a city, keeping its SPEED over fifty, and if its SPEED dropped, it would explode! I think it was called "The Bus That Couldn't Slow Down." I don't have to be careful, I've got a gun! I'm normally not a praying man, but if you're up there, please save me, Superman! Oh, they have Internet on computers now. Marge I swear, I never thought that you would find out.


Books are useless: I only ever read one book, "To Kill A Mockingbird" - and it gave me absolutely no insight on how to kill mockingbirds! Sure it taught me not to judge a man by the color of his skin, but what good does THAT do me? Shut up, brain, or I'll stab you with a Q-Tip! I am so smart, I am so smart, S M R T, I mean S M A R T.

Dating in the 60s

It's the summer of 1960 and Harold goes to pick up his date, Peggy Sue . Harold's a pretty hip guy with his own car and a duck tail hairdo. When he goes to the front door, Peggy Sue 's mother answers and invites him in. 'Peggy Sue 's not ready yet, so why don't you have a seat?' she says. That's cool. Peggy Sue 's mother asks Harold what they're planning to do. Harold replies politely that they will probably just go to the malt shop or to a drive in movie. Peggy Sue 's mother responds, 'Why don't you kids go out and screw? I hear all the kids are doing it.' Naturally this comes as quite a surprise to Harold and he says 'Wha...aaat?' 'Yeah,' says Peggy Sue 's mother, 'We know Peggy Sue really likes to screw; why, she'd screw all night if we let her!' Harold's eyes light up and he smiles from ear to ear. Immediately, he has revised the plans for the evening. A few minutes later, Peggy Sue comes downstairs in her little poodle skirt with Her saddle shoes, and announces that she's ready to go. Almost breathless with anticipation, Harold escorts his date out the front door while Mom is saying, 'Have a good Evening kids,' with a small wink for Harold. About 20 minutes later, a thoroughly dishevelled Peggy Sue rushes back into the house, slams the door behind her and screams at her mother: 'It's The Twist, Mother! The Twist! It's called The Twist'!

Murphy s Laws

if it works in theory, it won't work in practice. if it works in practice it won't work in theory. Research Law: No matter how clever and complete your research is, there is always someone who knows




Somers' Law of Repair: No part ever fails where you can reach it, or where there is enough light to see how to replace it. Any tool dropped will fall where it can cause the most damage. Any wire cut to length will be too short. Equivalent replacement parts aren't. When you finally update to a new technology, is when everyone stop supporting it. Interchangeable parts aren't The proposed size of any project is inversely proportional to the size the project will eventually become. Corollary: Any project that can consume more resources before reaching it's final state will do so. This will happen faster than you think. Also, the investors will not be happy. The less intelligent the idea, and the person stating it, the more likely it will be funded. A man with one watch is certain about time. A man with two watches isn't. The more knowledge you gained, the less certain you are of it. If you think you understand science (or computers or women), you're clearly not an expert Technicians are the only ones that don't trust technology All impossible failures, will happen at the test site. Corollary: All impossible failures will happen on the clients desktop The more you want to contact someone over an instant messenger is inversely proportional to the chances that they will be on-line. The more important your email is, the worse your email client will screw it up. The degree to which a device will function is directly proportional to the number of times it has been bashed and inversely to its cost. A device having an indestructible component or is user serviceable is deemed unsafe until it's replaced by an expensive, unobtainable, inefficient component which needs constant servicing. Assaf's Laws of Replacement Parts o A failed 25¢ part cannot be replaced by a new 25¢ part, but by a sub-assembly whose cost is equal to or greater than that of the device in need of the part o The cost and availability of a replacement part are in inverse proportion to the cost of the whole system: a $1500 device will fail because of the burnout of a 25¢ capacitor. But the 25¢ capacitor is either  no longer manufactured  manufactured only by a company in Outer Mongolia with an 18-month backlog  available only as part of a $1450 sub-assembly

Love Laws
y y y y y y y y y y y y y y y y y y

A man in the house is worth two in the street. If you get them by the balls, their hearts and minds will follow. Virginity can be cured. When a man's wife learns to understand him, she usually stops listening to him. Never sleep with anyone crazier than yourself. The qualities that most attract a woman to a man are usually the same ones she can't stand years later. Sex is dirty only if it's done right. It is always the wrong time of month. The best way to hold a man is in your arms. When the lights are out, all women are beautiful. Sex is hereditary. If your parents never had it, chances are you won't either. Sow your wild oats on Saturday night -- Then on Sunday pray for crop failure. The game of love is never called off on account of darkness. It was not the apple on the tree but the pair on the ground that caused the trouble in the garden. Sex discriminates against the shy and the ugly. Before you find your handsome prince, you've got to kiss a lot of frogs. There may be some things better than sex, and some things worse than sex. But there is nothing exactly like it. Love your neighbor, but don't get caught. 120

Love is a hole in the heart. If the effort that went in research on the female bosom had gone into our space program, we would now be running hot-dog stands on the moon. Love is a matter of chemistry, sex is a matter of physics. Do it only with the best. Sex is a three-letter word which needs some old-fashioned four-letter words to convey its full meaning. One good turn gets most of the blankets. You cannot produce a baby in one month by impregnating nine women. Love is the triumph of imagination over intelligence. It is better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all. Anonymous comment: The person who said that it is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all...NEVER loved and lost! Thou shalt not commit adultery.....unless in the mood. Never lie down with a woman who's got more troubles than you. Abstain from wine, women, and song; mostly song. Never argue with a women when she's tired -- or rested. A woman never forgets the men she could have had; a man, the women he couldn't. What matters is not the length of the wand, but the magic in the stick. It is better to be looked over than overlooked. Never say no. A man can be happy with any woman as long as he doesn't love her. Folks playing leapfrog must complete all jumps. Beauty is skin deep; ugly goes right to the bone. Never stand between a fire hydrant and a dog. A man is only a man, but a good bicycle is a ride. Love comes in spurts. The world does not revolve on an axis. Sex is one of the nine reasons for reincarnation; the other eight are unimportant. Smile, it makes people wonder what you are thinking. Don't do it if you can't keep it up. There is no difference between a wise man and a fool when they fall in love. Never go to bed mad, stay up and fight. Love is the delusion that one woman differs from another. "This won't hurt, I promise." Nothing improves with age. An ex-wife/husband will always be "till death do us part". When a man wants his wife to hear, she doesn't listen. When that same man doesn't want his wife to hear, she's all ears. It's always easier to get a partner if you already have one. Although it may seem like that on the outside, no one is having fun being single If you're heart is broken, sweep up the pieces. There will always be someone who will want to put it back together. Love and high-school must NEVER go together. If a man speaks deep in the forest and there is no woman there to hear him; is he still wrong? Show me a husband who won't, I'll show you a neighbor who will It doesn't matter HOW good it was, if you end up worrying or regretting it, it was bad sex 121

Little Old Lady


A little old lady goes to the doctor and says, "Doctor I have this problem with gas, but it really doesn't bother me too much. They never smell and are always silent. As a matter of fact I've farted at least 20 times since I've been here in your office. You didn't know I was farting because they didn't smell and are silent". The doctor says "I see. Take these pills and come back to see me next week." The next week the lady goes back, "Doctor," she says, "I don't know what the heck you gave me, but now my farts... although still silent they stink terribly." "Good", the doctor said, now that we've cleared up your sinuses, let's work on your hearing."

When you R in deep shi*

I asked God for a bike, but I know God doesn't work that way. So I stole a bike and asked for forgiveness. Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience. I want to die peacefully in my sleep, like my grandfather.. Not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car. The last thing I want to do is hurt you. But it's still on the list. Sex is not the answer. Sex is the question. "Yes" is the answer. Women might be able to fake orgasms. But men can fake a whole relationship. We live in a society where pizza gets to your house before the police. Having sex is like playing bridge. If you don't have a good partner, you'd better have a good hand. We never really grow up, we only learn how to act in public. Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak. Men have two emotions: Hungry and Horny. If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich. War does not determine who is right - only who is left. If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong. The early bird might get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese. Politicians and diapers have one thing in common. They should both be changed regularly, and for the same reason. Children: You spend the first 2 years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next 16 years telling them to sit down and shut-up. If sex is a pain in the ass, then you're doing it wrong... Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit; Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad. Evening news is where they begin with 'Good evening', and then proceed to tell you why it isn't.
