I couldn't find the old joke thread and this is completely off topic but it made me laugh.  Probably will get deleted.
Once a woman was in labor; she was having a really tough time dealing  with  the pain. The doctor came to her husband and her and told them of a new experimental drug that allows the woman to transfer 25% of the pain to the father. The husband feels really bad for his wife so he decides they will try it.
The wife takes the pill and a few minutes later the husband says, "I don't  feel a thing. You women are babies. Take another pill I can handle this."  So the wife takes another pill. Same thing happens. Her husband tells her to take another pill. Same thing. By now she has transferred 75% of her pain to her husband. She is feeling a little pain but her husband is  still feeling nothing. He is convinced that women are complete wuses. He  tells her, "Take another pill. This isn't hurting me at all. Let me take  all the pain away." So she does. Now they are both feeling great.
A few hours later, the wife gives birth to a beautiful baby boy. The  next day they take their newborn son home, and there they find the mailman dead on the doorstep

A couple of 98 year olds appear before the judge in divorce court. As the judge listens politely they make their respective cases. <?:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />
When they’ve finished the judge said, “I just have to ask; you’ve been married for 75 years, what made you chose this point I your lives, at 98 years of age, to end your marriage?”
The wife replied, “We were waiting for the children to die.”

BAD DAY AT THE OFFICEJust as a word of explanation, this eMail is supposedly from a commercial saturation
diver for a firm out of Louisiana who performs underwater repairs on
offshore drilling rigs. Any time you
think you are having a bad day at the office, remember this letter. Supposedly a true
Just another note from your bottom dwelling brother. Last week I had a bad
day at the office. Before I can tell you what happened to me, I first must bore
you with a few technicalities of my job. As you know my office lies at the
bottom of the sea. I wear a suit to the office. It's a wetsuit.This time of
year the water is quite cool. So what we do to keep warm is this: We have a
diesel powered industrial water heater. This $20,000 piece of machinery sucks
the water out of the sea. It heats it to a delightful temp. It then pumps it
down to the diver through a gardenhose which is taped to the air hose.Now this
sounds like a darn good plan, and I've used it several times with no complaints.
What I do, when I get to the bottom and start working, is I take the hose and
stuff it down the back of my neck. This floods my whole suit with warm water.
It's like working in a Jacuzzi.Everything was going well until all of a sudden,
my butt started to itch. So, of course, I scratched it. This only made things
worse. Within a few seconds my butt started to burn. I pulled the hose out from
my back, but the damage was done. In agony I realized what had happened. The hot
water machine had sucked up a jellyfish and pumped it into my suit. This is even
worse than the poison ivy you once had under a cast. Now I had that hose down my
back.  I don't have any hair on my back, so the jellyfish slid straight down. I informed the dive
supervisor of my dilemma over the comms. His instructions were unclear due to
the fact that he along with 5 other divers were laughing hysterically. Needless
to say I aborted the dive. I was instructed to make 3 agonizing in-water
compression stops totaling 35 minutes before I could come to the surface for my
chamber dry decompression. I got to the surface wearing nothing but my brass
helmet. My suit and gear were tied to the bell. When I got on board the medic,
with tears of laughter running down his face, handed me a tube of cream. The cream put the fire out,
but I couldn't use the bathroom for two days.I later
found out that this could easily have been prevented if the suction hose was
placed on the leeward side of the ship.Anyway, the next time you have a bad day
at the office, think about how much worse your day would be if you
were to shove a jellyfish down the back of your pants.

THREE THINGS TO THINK ABOUT: 1. COWS, 2. THE CONSTITUTION, and 3. THE TEN COMMANDMENTSCOWSIs it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that our government  can track a cow born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the  stall  where she sleeps in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her  calves  to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal  aliens  wandering around our country. Maybe we should give them all a cow.THE CONSTITUTIONThey keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq. Why don't we  just give them ours? It was written by a lo t of really smart guys, it's worked for over 200 years and we're not using it anymore.TEN COMMANDMENTS The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments in a courthouse........ You cannot post "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery"  and "Thou Shall Not Lie" in a building full of lawyers, judges and  politicians -- it creates a hostile work environment.

    A man comes home from a long day at work and wants to spend some intimate time with his wife.  As he starts to put the moves on her she says "I'm not really in the mood for that right now can you just hold me?"     Upset the man does as his wife wishes.  A few days later the two of them are out shopping.  The wife picks out three expensive outfits and can't decide which one to get.  The man responds "get them all"     The wife is overcome with joy but now insists that she needs shoes to go with the outfits "no problem" the man answers when the wife shows him three $200 pairs of shoes.      Finally they go to the jewelry counter where the wife picks out some diamond earrings and a tennis bracelet to complete the outfits.  After completing their shopping the wife says "I think I have everything now we can go to the cash register"     To which the husband responds "You know I'm not really in the mood to pay for these things right now why don't you just hold them"

Little Johnny attended a horse auction with his father. He watched as his father moved from horse to horse, running his hands up and down the horse's legs and rump, and chest. After a few minutes, Johnny asked, "Dad, why are you doing that?" His father replied, "Because when I'm buying horses, I have to make sure that they are healthy and in good shape before I buy. Johnny, looking worried, said, "Dad, I think the UPS guy wants to buy Mom"

Little Johnny watched, fascinated, as his mother smoothed cold cream on her face. "Why do you do that, mommy?" he asked. "To make myself beautiful," said his mother, who then began removing the cream with a tissue. "What's the matter?" asked Little Johnny. "Giving up?"

A store that sells new husbands has just opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates.
You may visit the store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the attributes of the men increase as the shopper ascends the flights. There is, however, a catch: you may choose any man from a particular floor, or you may choose to go up a floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building! So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband.
On the first floor the sign on the door reads:
Floor 1 - These men have jobs.
Floor 2 - These men have jobs and love kids.
Floor 3 - These men have jobs, love kids, and are extremely good looking.
"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going. She goes to the fourth floor and sign reads:
Floor 4 - These men have jobs, love kids, are drop-dead good looking and help with the housework.
"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!" Still, she goes to the fifth floor and sign reads:
Floor 5 - These men have jobs, love kids, are drop-dead gorgeous, help with the housework, and have a strong romantic streak.
She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the sign reads:
Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.
(Personally, I would have been overjoyed to make a purchase on the first floor.)
The Wife Store
The first floor has wives that love sex.
The second floor has wives that love sex and have money.
The third through sixth floors have never been visited

"When I read about the evils of drinking, I gave up reading"- Henny Youngman
"A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. When the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Claven

I don't remember if I posted this before.  If I did, it's still funny
Choosing a wife
A man wanted to get married. He was having trouble choosing among three likely candidates. He gives each woman a present of $5,000 and watches to see what they do with the money.
The first does a total make over. She goes to a fancy beauty salon gets her hair done, new make up and buys several new outfits and dresses up very nicely for the man. She tells him that she has done this to be more attractive for him because she loves him so much.
The man was impressed.
The second goes shopping to buy the man gifts. She gets him a new set of golf clubs, some new gizmos for his computer, and some expensive clothes. As she presents these gifts, she tells him that she has spent all the money on him because she loves him so much.
Again, the man is impressed.
The third invests the money in the stock market. She earns several times the $5,000. She gives him back his $5,000 and reinvests the remainder in a joint account. She tells him that she wants to save for their future because she loves him so much.
Obviously, the man was impressed.
The man thought for a long time about what each woman had done with the money he'd given her.
Then, he married the one with the biggest boobs.
Men are like that, you know.

There is a factory in Northern Minnesota, which makes the Tickle Me Elmo toys.
Well, Lena is hired at The Tickle Me Elmo factory and she reports for her first day promptly at 8:00 AM. The next day at 8:45 AM there is a knock at the Personnel Manager's door.The Foreman throws open the door and begins to rant about the new employee, Lena. He complains that she is incredibly slow and the whole line is backing up, putting the entire production line behind schedule.
The Personnel Manager decides he should see this for himself, so the two men march down to the factory floor.
When they get there, the line is so backed up that there are Tickle Me Elmo's all over the factory floor and they're really beginning to pile up. At the end of the line stands Lena surrounded by mountains of Tickle Me Elmo's. She has a roll of plush red fabric and a huge bag of small marbles.The two men watch in amazement as she cuts a little piece of fabric, wraps it around two marbles and begins to carefully sew the little package between Elmo's legs. The Personnel Manager bursts into laughter.
After several minutes of hysterics, he pulls himself together and approaches Lena. "I'm sorry," he says to her, barely able to keep a straight face, "but I think you misunderstood the instructions I gave you yesterday. . . ""Your job is to give Elmo two test tickles."

TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED the 1930's 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's !!

First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes.
Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-based paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking. As infants & children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, booster seats, seat belts or air bags. Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special treat.We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle. We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and
NO ONE actually died from this.

We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank koolade made with sugar, but we weren't overweight because .

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on.

No one was able to reach us all day.

And we were O.K.We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride downthe hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVD's, no surround-sound or CD's, no cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet or chat rooms....... WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents.

We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.

We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes.We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them!

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of.

They actually sided with the law!

These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever!

The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas.

We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned


If YOU are one of them . . . CONGRATULATIONS!

You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up askids, before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives
for our own good

And while you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave (and lucky) their parents were.


Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn't it?!

Mr. and Mrs. Fenton are retired, and Mrs. Fenton insists her husband go with her to Walmart. He gets so bored with all the shopping trips. He prefers to get in and get out, but Mrs. Fenton loves to browse.
Dear Mrs. Fenton,
Over the past six months, your husband has been causing quite a commotion in our store. We cannot tolerate this behavior and may ban both of you from our stores. We have documented all incidents on our video surveillance equipment. All complaints against Mr. Fenton are listed below.
Things Mr. Bill Fenton has done while his spouse was shopping in Walmart:

1. The Wall Street Journal is read by the people who run the country.
2. The New York Times is read by people who think they run the country.
3. The Washington Post is read by people who think they should run the country.
4. USA Today is read by people who think they ought to run the country but don't really understand the Washington Post. They do, however like the smog statistics shown in pie charts.
5. The Los Angeles Times is read by people who wouldn't mind running the country, if they could spare the time, and if they didn't have to leave L.A. to do it.
6. The Boston Globe is read by people whose parents used to run the country.
7. The New York Daily News is read by people who aren't too sure who's running the country, and don't really care as long as they can get a seat on the train.
8. The New York Post is read by people who don't care who's running the country either, as long as they do something really scandalous, preferably while intoxicated.
9. The San Francisco Chronicle is read by people who aren't sure there is a country, or that anyone is running it; but whoever it is, they oppose all that they stand for. There are occasional exceptions if the leaders are handicapped minority, feministic atheist dwarfs, who also happen to be illegal aliens from ANY country or galaxy as long as they are democrats.
10. The Miami Herald is read by people who are running another country, but need the baseball scores.
