1st - Tony Crafter with:
Late one night an old lady rang her vet and asked him the best way to separate a pair of copulating dogs.

"I'd say your best bet is to try prising them apart with a stick," he said.

A few minutes later, the old lady rang back saying the stick hadn't worked and could he advise something else.

"Oh, I dunno," said the vet, "You could try throwing water over them, perhaps?"

A few minutes later the lady phoned again. Unfortunately, the water had not done the job and she asked if there was anything else she could try.

"Go and tell one of the dogs it's wanted on the phone," said the vet, now becoming rather annoyed.

"Huh? That's a bit of an unusual remedy!" said the old lady. "Will it work?"

"Well," the vet replied, "it's already worked three times with me."


The elderly lady was standing at the cruise ship's railing clutching her hat to her head to stop the wind blowing it away.

A gentleman approached the aged female and said, "Pardon me, madam; I don't wish to appear forward, but did you know that the whole of your dress is billowing up in the wind?"

"Yes, I did know that 'detail'," she stated. "However, I need to have both hands free to hold onto the hat."

"But madam, you must realise that you are not wearing knickers and that your privates are on full view to all the deck's passengers!" entreated the gentleman.

The lady glanced down, then looked back at the gentleman. "Sir," she retorted flakily, "anything you see down there is seventy-five years old. I just bought this hat yesterday!"

2nd - Larry Brash with:
The Headache

A married couple were invited to this really swanky costume party. The wife had gotten a bad headache and told her husband to go on to the party on his own.

Being the devoted husband, he protested, but she argued and said: "I will have to take some aspirin and go to bed." and then said that he did not need his good time spoiled by him not going.

Taking his costume with him, away he went. After sleeping very soundly for an hour, the wife awoke without pain and, as it was still early enough, decided to go the party herself.

As her husband did not know what costume she would be wearing, she thought she would have some good fun by watching her husband to see how he acted when she was not there with him.

She joined the party and soon found her husband cavorting around on the dance floor, dancing with every sexy woman he could find, and copping a little feel here and a little kiss there.


His wife sidled up to him and as she was a rather seductive babe herself, her husband left his current partner high and dry and devoted his time to the new chic babe that had just strolled in.

Off they went to one of the cars and had a loud hot passionate session.

A little before they unmasked at midnight, she slipped away, went home, hid her costume away and went to bed, wondering what explanation he would have for his behavior and acts.

She was sitting up reading when he arrived, and she asked what kind of night he had.

He said: "Oh... the usual thing. You know I do not have a good time when you're not there."

"Did you dance a lot?"

"You know, I did not dance one dance, though when I got there, I met Pete, Charles Schorsch, his Dad, Greg, Bill Browning and some other golf guys, so we went to the den and played poker all night.

But, wow, you're not going to believe what happened to the guy I had loaned my costume to...."

3rd - Dharam Khalsa with:
Ole and Lena: What to Do When it Snows in Minnesota
One winter morning in Minneapolis, Ole and his wife Lena were listening to the radio during breakfast and they heard the announcer say, "We are going to have eight to ten inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, so the snowplows can get through." So the good wife Lena went out and moved her car.

A week later while they are eating breakfast again, the radio announcer said, "We are expecting ten to twelve inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd-numbered side of the street, so the snowplows can get through." Lena went out and moved her car again.
A few days later, they were again sharing breakfast, when a news announcer commented, "We can expect over twelve to fourteen inches of snow here today. This constitutes an unseasonable amount! You must park...."

Then the electricity went out. Lena got very upset and nervous. With a worried look on her face she said, "Oh no! I don't know what to do. Which side do I need to park on so the doggone snowplows are able to get through?"

With the genuine grace and understanding of all Minnesota husbands of Norwegian heritage who are married to innately strong women, he rose and replied in a tone of endearment, "Dear, why don't you leave it in the garage this time?"

David received a parrot for his birthday. The bird was fully grown with an extremely bad attitude and vocabulary. Every other squawk was a terrible obscenity. Those that weren't expletives, were, to say at the least, rude. David had tried very hard to discourage the bird's attitude and was constantly saying polite words, playing placid music and anything else he could think of to chill the bird down. Nothing had worked. Unsure, he yelled at the parrot and the parrot screamed back with disdain. He shocked the bird and it got more angry and even more rude. Finally, in a moment of intense desperation, he placed the bird in the freezer, just for a few moments.


He heard the entrapped bird screech, kick, battle and scream- then suddenly, the parrot stopped and it was silent.

David, worried he may have hurt the old bird, bitterly jolted the freezer door open. The parrot gently crept out and warbled briskly "I believe I'm a fool. I was wrong and needlessly offended you with my tireless rotten language and several rude actions. I'll try at once to fix my behavior. I'm truly sorry and want your forgiveness." David was astonished at the bird's very big change in attitude and was about to enquire what had made such a dramatic change in his attitude, when the parrot next offered, "May I ask - what in the world did the chicken do?

An elderly woman decided to give herself a big treat for one of her significant birthdays by staying overnight in London's most expensive hotel. When she checked out the next morning, the desk clerk handed her a bill for £250. She exploded and demanded to know why the charge was so high. "It's quite a nice hotel, but the rooms certainly are not worth even £100 for an overnight stop, without any breakfast!"

The clerk told her that is the normal rate, so she insisted on speaking to the manager.

The manager, who had been quietly forewarned by the front desk, appeared and announced, "This hotel has an aquatic wing with an Olympic-sized pool, a masseuse, and a huge conference room which were available for you to use."

"But I didn't use them," the woman argued.

"Well, they are here, and you could have used them," explained the manager.
The manager went on to explain that she could have seen one of the special in-hotel shows for which the hotel is famous. "We have all the best No.1-ranked performers from London, Edinburgh, Glasgow, and Aberdeen," he began...

"I didn't attend any of the shows," she protested.

"Well, they are here, and you could have," said the manager dryly.

No matter what amenity or attraction he mentioned - recreation, sauna...even the kennel - she blocked him, replying, "But I didn't use it!"

The manager was insistent, so to not prolong this dialog, she groped for her pocketbook, scribbled a cheque, and turned it over to him.

He was angry when he examined the cheque. "This cheque is for £50!"

"Exactly! I charged you £200 for having kinky sex with me," the unfazed poker-faced woman stated.

"But I didn't!!" the manager said arrogantly.

"Well, I was here, and you could have."

A girl asks her boyfriend Graham to come over Friday night to meet her parents and to have dinner with them.

Since it is such a momentous event, the girl announces to him that, after dinner, she would like to go out somewhere romantic and make love for the first time.

Graham is ecstatic, but he has never had sex before, so he goes to the pharmacy to buy some condoms.

He tells the pharmacist it's his first time and the pharmacist helps him for about an hour, telling the boy everything there is to know about condoms and about sex.

At the register, the pharmacist asks Graham how many condoms he would like to buy, a 3-pack, 10-pack, or family pack. The boy settles on the family size because he thinks he will be rather busy, it being his first time and all.

That night, Graham turns up at the girl's parents' house and meets his girlfriend at the door. 'Ooh, I'm so excited about you meeting my parents,' she says; 'come in!'

Graham goes in and is led to the dinner table where the girl's parents are already seated. The boy quickly offers to say grace and bows his head. About a minute passes and the boy is still deep in prayer with his head bowed.

Ten minutes pass and still no movement from him.

Finally, after 20 minutes with his head down, the girl leans over and whispers to the boyfriend, 'I had no idea you were so religious.'

The boy turns, and whispers back, 'I had no idea your father was a pharmacist.'


Three McDonald's trade Executives are captured by tribesmen deep in an Amazon rainforest and taken to their chief.

"You very bad men!" says the chief, "destroy our forests. You shall be punished."

The 3 men look at each other apprehensively.

"You!" says the chief, pointing aggressively at the first man. "I let you choose. Death... or bum-bum!"

"I don't want to die!" shrieks the quaking man. "I don't know what this bum-bum is, but I'll take it!"

With that, 10 of the biggest, most strapping warriors grab the helpless man, throw him over a log and continue to roger him mercilessly for half-an-hour until he is a sad, bloodied wreck, then drag him away.

The chief looks at the second McDonald's man and says, "I give you same choice as him. Death or bum-bum!"

"Heck, what you did to my pal was horrific," gasps the distressed man, "but... I don't want to die either. I shall take bum-bum."

With that, 20 eager, strapping warriors grab the man, throw him over the same log, and roger him in the same, senselessly appalling manner for an hour, leaving him in a worse state than the first man.

The chief then turns to the last exec, who is the most senior of the three, and before he can speak, the man spits defiantly, "Kiss my ass! I will not experience the same sordid indignity as those spineless idiots! Death before dishonor, say I! Yes... I choose death!"

At that, a great cheer goes up from the tribe as they all roar as one: "Hooray! Death by bum-bum!"

Who had a large wart on her nose.
When she had it removed
Her appearance improved,
But her glasses slipped down to her toes.

Who rode on Sal, a grey mulish steed.
The horse, Sal, saw the clover
She bent her head over;

Understanding Engineers
Two engineering students were walking their bicycles across the university campus when one asked, "Where did you get such a great bicycle?"

The second replied, "Well, I just was walking along yesterday, minding my own business, when a beautiful girl rode up on this bicycle, threw it onto the ground, took off all her clothes and said, "Take what you want."

The first engineer nodded approvingly and said, "Good choice; the clothes probably wouldn't have fit you."

A priest, a doctor, and an engineer were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers ahead.

The engineer fumed, "What's with those guys? We must have been waiting for fifteen minutes!"

The doctor chimed in, "I don't know, but I've never seen such inept golfers!"

The priest said, "Here comes the greenskeeper. Let's have a word with him."

He said, "Bob, what's up with that group ahead of us? They're incredibly slow!"

The greenskeeper answered, "Those are blind firemen. They all lost their sight saving the clubhouse from a fire last year, so we let them play anytime."

The entire group fell silent. The priest said, "That's sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them tonight."

Next, the doctor said, "That's a great idea! I'm going to contact an ophthalmologist colleague and see if there's anything he can do to help them."

The engineer said, "Why can't they golf at night?"
To the happy optimist, the glass is half-full.
To the glum unhappy pessimist, the glass is half-empty.
To the critically-thinking engineer, the glass is twice as big as it needs to be.

What's the difference between mechanical engineers and civil engineers?
Mechanical engineers build weapons.
Civil engineers build targets.

The graduate with a physics degree asks, "Why does it work?"
The graduate with an engineering degree prefers, "How does it work?"
The graduate with an accounting degree asks, "How much will it cost?"
The graduate with the arts degree asks, "So, do ya' want fries with that?"

Normally, many people believe the theory that if it ain't broke, don't fix it--why worry?
Oddly, engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.

A group of engineering students who study together pondered who designed the human body.

The first offered, "Presumably, it was a mechanical engineer, considering all those powerful joints."

The second responded, "Wrong! It was an electrical engineer. The nervous system has thousands of superb electrical connections throughout."

The final fellow, stopping to think for a long moment, answered dryly, "Oh, actually, it would have to be the civil engineer who designed the human body. What other foolhardy moron would run a hydrodynamic waste pipeline through a recreational area?"
