2nd - Tony Crafter with:
"Oh, Doctor," pleaded the woman, "I just don't know what to do. Every night, my husband comes home insanely drunk and beats me to a pulp."

"Ah, I have a really good cure for that," replied the doctor. "Whenever your husband comes home inebriated, just take a drink of sweet tea and then start swishing it around in your mouth. Just swish and swish but don't swallow it until he has gone to bed and is asleep."

Some days later, the woman returned to the doctor and flounced in looking fresh, bubbly and reborn. "Hey, doctor!" she gushed, "that was a brilliant idea! Every time my husband came home drunk, I swished with sweet tea. I swished and I swished, and he didn't touch me once! How on earth does the tea do that?"

The doctor replied: "The tea does sod all, it's keeping your mouth shut that does the trick..."


A woman was in bed with her lover when she suddenly heard the front door opening.

"Oh my God, it's my husband!" she cried, "Stand in the corner!"

She hurriedly rubbed baby oil all over the worried man, then dusted him with talcum powder. "Ok, so don't move until I tell you to," she whispered; "pretend you're a statue."

The husband came upstairs into the room. "What's... that?" he asked warily.

"Oh, just some statue," she muttered casually, "I saw the Jacksons had bought one and liked it, so I decided I must get us one as well."

No more was said, and they went to bed.

Around two o'clock in the morning the husband got up, tiptoed to the kitchen and returned with a sandwich and a cool beer.

Dharam Khalsa with:
George W. Bush (2001-9)

If you remember, President Bush's vocal response after the terrorist airplane attacks was, "Over time it's going to be important for nations to know they will be held accountable for inactivity. You're either with us or against us in the fight against terror." The Bush doctrine (which Sarah Palin did not remember) revealed that the US would not hesitate to act, alone if necessary, to exercise its right of self-defense by acting preemptively. That is the main point to consider when it comes to his foreign policy doctrine, while he took the country to wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.


Barack H. Obama (2009 to present)

President Obama, in his pithiest speech of the 1st quarter of the year on US' involvement in military action with Libya, set out the groundwork of his doctrine, which decrees the US can intervene in conflicts "when our safety is not directly threatened, but our interests and values are" (i.e. Moammar Gadhafi's slaughter of civilian rebels).

Each FOX-type critic blasts the president for outright wastage, for not clarifying what the mission will be in easy terms (or both), or not waiting another week to negotiate with Congress prior to deploying the troops. Get the idea?

"Here," he said to the 'statue', "have this. I stood like that for two days at the Jacksons and nobody offered me a damned thing."

Harshal M. with:

"Hi, Bill," said God, "I am indeed unable to think on this one. I'm not sure whether to send you to Heaven or Hell. After all, you did enormously assist society by putting a computer in almost every home in the world, and yet you did create loads of that stupid, bad, insignificant Windows. I'm going to do something I never plotted before. I'm going to let you decide where to go!"

Gates nodded at this, "Ha-ha-ha! Well, thanks, God." then asked, "Do tell what's the difference between the two?"

God said, "You can take a slight sight at both places briefly if it will help you decide. Shall we look at Hell first?"

"Sure, God!" said Bill. "Let's go!"

Bill was amazed! He saw a clean, white, long beach with clear waters. There were thousands of beautiful women dashing around this dawn, playing in this water, laughing and frolicking about. This big, bright sun was shining high and this temperature was perfect!
Bill said, "It's great! If this is Hell, I can't wait to see Heaven."

To which God replied, "Let's go!" and off they went.

Bill found puffy white clouds in a beautiful blue sky with lovely angels drifting about playing harps and singing. It was too amazing, but surely not more enticing as Hell. Mr. Gates hesitated for only a brief moment and then had his idea. "God, I would like to go to Hell."

"As you desire," said God.

Two weeks later, God decided to check up on the late billionaire to see how things were going. He noticed Bill shackled to a wall. He was screaming noise amongst the hot fires in a dark cave. He was being burned and tortured by demons.

God merely uttered, "How's it goin', Bill?"

Bill responded with anguish and despair, "Oh, my mercy's ass! It irritates! It's purely awful! Oh, this is not what I thought at all! What happened to the beach and the beautiful women lying in the water, God?!"

"Oh, THAT!" said God. "That was the screen saver!"

Ember Nickel with:
Rat: I don't know why it is that, each time there's a controversy or scandal, some nut puts the word "gate" on the end of it. Do you, gentlemen?

Goat: It's from Watergate, the scandal at Washington.

Rat: That's dumb.

Goat: No, dumb is the version of Windows I just bought. It crashed on me.

Zebra: What were you trying to do?

Goat: Upload this video of a horse trotting.

Zebra: Why?

Goat: Because it shows the mount easily pushing open the fence door I would buy.
Rat: So?

Goat: So, Rat, I'm sending it to the manufacturer of the yard's fence door to ask how he can build something so defective that the horse rider could go and trot through it. But stupid Windows won't let me do it. Oh, I just want to punch the inventor of Windows with my hands!

Zebra: Hey, hey, sit down. Maybe you should call some news reporters about this.

Goat: About what?

Zebra: Gates gait gate gate.

Goat (to Pastis): You're annoying even me now.

Ahead, it's the annual WWE brand draft - the most important night of the year (well, that's what Jerry "The King" Lawler said) - and it's time to shake things up once more! Cool!

Anyone's career could be changed forever. My, how crazy will things get? =

Mighty hero John Cena is drafted to Smackdown? Hey, all right!

Oh. Nevermind.

Shut up! Rey and Sin Cara will be working together? Great!

Come on! What the hell?

At least Raw won't be cancelled - the Miz is staying put.

What a tease and sorry effort.

Kate Middleton: "I'm so very sorry in asking, your Majesty, but what good and timely advice would you give one for how one might best perhaps live a life as happy, fulfilled, and indeed quite as long as yours has been, ma'am?" =
H.M. the Queen: "OK young lady...a highly-dignified, svelte image...stick by your marriage vows if alone with an Al Fayed, just avoid landmines...,oh, and I suppose, always remember to do your seatbelt up, love, and DON'T piss me orf!"

Rosie Perera with:
"Workers at the stricken Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant in Japan are onto Plan C in their bid to stop highly radioactive water from gushing directly into the Pacific Ocean." =
Ah, crikey! This is ironic as deja vu! That reactor radiation panic is like when BP was trying to cap the handicapped oil well to keep further contamination in the Gulf from occurring.
