1st - Tony Crafter with:
A husband wrote the following letter to his wife and left it on the dining room table:

'To My Dearest Wife,

I know you must surely understand that I have certain needs that you, being a fifty-four-year old woman, can no longer satisfy. I am extremely satisfied with your cookery skills and your housekeeping prowess, and I value you as an unusually good wife. Therefore, after reading this letter I hope you will not misinterpret the fact that I shall be spending this evening with my more comely, eighteen-year-old secretary at the Comfort Lodge Hotel.

Please do not be too upset - I shall make sure I am back home before midnight and I shall, of course, try not to awaken you.'

When the man returned home late that night he found the following letter on the dining room table:
'To My Dear Husband,

Well, I've read your letter, and thanks for your honesty regarding my age. May I take this opportunity to remind you that you are fifty-four as well?

As you know, I'm a maths teacher at the local college, and I'd like to inform you that, while you're at the Comfort Lodge, I'll be at the Purple Panther Inn with Greg, one of my students, who also happens to be a bodybuilder and tennis coach. He's virile, well-endowed, tireless and, like your secretary, eighteen and single.

As a businessman with an excellent knowledge of maths, you'll understand that we're both kind of in the same situation, although with one vast difference; eighteen goes into fifty-four a lot more times than fifty-four goes into eighteen. Therefore I will not be home until sometime tomorrow.'

2nd - Ellie Dent with:
A lawyer, a doctor and a mathematician were discussing
the relative merits of having a wife or a mistress.

The lawyer said: 'A mistress is better. If you have a
wife and want a divorce, it can cause all sorts of legal

The doctor said: 'I think it is better to have a wife
because the sense of security lowers your stress and is
good for your health.'


The mathematician said: 'If we're to accept latest
available statistical research, we find the general
verdict is it is safer, so best, to have BOTH a wife
AND lover. Action does reduce stress after all!

So, if your wife reasons you're going abroad with a
mistress, whoever,and said mistress thinks you are
regularly with your wife...YOU can do some maths!'

Tony Crafter with:
A man was driving through the backwoods of Montana when he saw a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house: 'Talking Dog For Sale ' He rang the bell and the owner appeared and told him that the dog was in the backyard.

The guy went into the backyard and saw a very nice looking Labrador sitting there.

"You talk?" he asked.

"Yep," the Lab replied.

After the guy had recovered from the shock of hearing the dog talk, he enquired, "So, what's your story?"

The Lab looked up and replied, "Well, my name is Rex. I discovered that I could talk way back when I was very young. I wanted to help the government, so I phoned the CIA and spoke to them... In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and even big world leaders, because no one imagined that a common dog would actually be eavesdropping.

"I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years. But the jetting around really exhausted me, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I decided to settle down. I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security work, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a big batch of medals. Then I met a Lab bitch, got married and had a mess of puppies. Now I'm just retired."

The man was amazed. He went back to the house and asked the owner how much he wanted for Rex.

"Ten dollars," the guy said.

"Huh? Ten dollars? But that dog is amazing, man! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?"

"Because he's a liar. He never did any of those things."


A man went out to the street and caught a taxi just going by. He got into the taxi, and the cabbie said, "Perfect timing. You're just like Ron!"

Passenger: "Who?"

Cabbie: "Ron Todd. He's a guy who did everything right all the time, like coming along just when you wanted a cab. Surprising things like that happened to Ron Todd every time."

Passenger: "But there's the odd rain-cloud over us all."

Cabbie: "Not Ron Todd. And he was a terrific athlete. Ron could have won the Grand Slam at tennis. He could play golf with the pros. He sang like an opera tenor and danced like a Broadway superstar and, oh, you should have heard him play the piano. He was an amazing guy."

Passenger: "Yes, it sounds as if Ron Todd was really special."

Cabbie: "And that's not all. Ron had a mind like a computer. He remembered everybody's birthday. Ron knew all about wine, and understood what food to order and which fork to eat it with. And he could fix anything. If I change a fuse, the entire street blacks out. But Ron could do everything right."

Passenger: "Some guy!"

Cabbie: "Ron always knew the quickest way to go to dodge traffic jams. Not like me, I always get stuck in them. Ron Todd never made mistakes, not one. And he knew how to treat a woman and make her feel good. He'd never answer her back even if she was in the wrong; and his clothing was always stylish, shoes highly polished too. He was the perfect man! He never made mistakes. No one measured up to dear old Ron Todd."

Passenger: "An amazing guy. How did you meet him?"

Cabbie: "Well, I never actually met Ron. He died. I'm married to his f****g widow."
