Of writhed death by yogic contortion.


1st - Andrew Brehaut with:
I was a very happy person.

My wonderful girlfriend and I had been dating for over a year, and so we decided to get married. There was only one little thing bothering me .. it was her beautiful, voluptuous, younger sister.

My future sister-in-law was twenty-two, wore very tight mini-skirts, and generally was braless. She would regularly wink and then bend right down when she was near me, and I always got more than a full pleasant look at her delectable private parts.

It had to be deliberate. She never exhibited herself when she was near any other males.

One day, my cute "little" sister called and asked me to come over to check all of the wedding invitations. She was all alone when I got there, and she whispered to me that she had so many suppressed emotions and desires for me that she could not deny.

She told me that she wanted to make love to me just once before I got married and committed my life to her sister.


Well, I was in shock, and couldn't breathe a word. She said, "I'm going to my bedroom, and if you want one last wild fling, come and get me, sweetheart."

I was stunned and reeling in shock as I beheld the jewess travel up the stairs. When she reached the top, the vixen sleekly leant over, pulled at her shoestring bikini panties baring her flawless arse and threw them down the stairs at me. I stood there mindlessly for a moment, then reversed and made a beeline straight to the front door. I opened the door, and maneuvered straight towards my VW Beetle.

Lo and behold, my entire new family was standing outside, all clapping!

With tears in his eyes, my father-in-law to be hugged me and uttered, "We are very happy that you have resisted our little sensory test.....we believe we couldn't ask for a sweeter man for our dearest daughter. Welcome to the family."

And the moral of the story is:

Always keep all your condoms in your car.
2nd - Tony Crafter with:
Did you know that:

It takes your food just seven seconds to get from your mouth to your stomach.

One human hair can support three kilograms.

The average man's penis is three times the length of his thumb.

People's thighbones are stronger than concrete.

A woman's heart beats faster than that of a man.

There are approximately one trillion bacteria on each of your feet.

Women blink twice as often as men do.

The average person's skin weighs twice as much as their brain.

Your body uses three hundred muscles to balance itself when you are standing still.

If saliva can't dissolve something, then you can't taste it.

Women reading this will be finished now.

Men are still busy checking their thumbs.


A short while ago an innovative new supermarket opened in Kansas.

The store has an automatic water-mister built in to ensure that produce stays extra-fresh. Just as it comes on, you hear the rumble of distant thunder and smell the scent of fresh rain.

When roaming past the milk cartons, you hear cows mooing as you smell that scent of newly-mown grass.

In the meat section, there is the aroma of char-grilled steak with onions.

When you move to the eggs section, the air is filled with the hubbub of hens clucking, plus the aromas of bacon and eggs frying.

Then, in the bread section, there are the evocative smells of breads, pies and biscuits baking. Oh, yum!

I don't buy my toilet paper there anymore.

3rd - Christopher Sturdy with:
And it came to pass, an Englishman, Irishman and Scotsman who have done a bank job are on the run from the police. They enter a large garage but kick themselves when it turns out there is nowhere they might hide apart from a few old hessian sacks. They can hear the officers assembling outside getting ready to come in so they each climb into a sack and lie hidden as still as they possibly can.

The posse shows up and they soon come to the sacks and start checking them out.~
The Englishman resting in his sack fools the sorry cops by snarling, sounding just like a dog, so they go away.

The cunning Scotsman hears it and purrs in his sack like a cat with the same outcome.

The baffled detectives are about to abandon the search when they come to the last sack containing the Irishman.

Having remembered how his fellow men escaped detection, farmer O'Leary thinks, and as they manhandle him, the bemused cops hear the sack say "potatoes, potatoes".

Aural Occurrence:

C, E-flat, and G go into a bar.

The bartender says, "Sorry, pal. At our bar, we don't serve minors." So, E-flat leaves, and C and G have an open fifth between them.

After a couple drinks, the fifth's diminished. G is out flat. C slurs. F comes in and tries to augment the situation, but is not sharp enough.

D heads for the toilet saying, "Pardon, I'll just be a second."

A comes into the bar, but the bartender is not sure that this relative of C is not a minor. He notices B-flat occupying the bar, and yells "Rise or get out now! You're the seventh minor I've seen in this bar today."

The E-flat, not deflated, comes back on the following night in a gray 3-piece suit and nicely shined shoes.
The bartender says: "Hi, you're looking sharp tonight, come on in the bar! This might be a major development." This proves to be the case, as E-flat takes off the suit, doffs everything else, and then is au naturel.

After imbibing, C eventually sobers up, and sees in horror that he's under a rest. C is brought to trial without fighting, found guilty of contributing to the diminution of a minor, and sentenced to 3 years of DS without fine at an eminent, upscale correctional facility. On appeal, however, C is found blameless of any wrongdoing, even accidental, and that all accusations to the contrary are bassless.

The bartender decides he needs a rest - and closes the bar.

A young woman was so depressed that she decided to end her life by throwing herself into the sea.

But before she could throw herself in, this fetching young man stopped her.

"You have too much to live for!" said the nice man.

"I"m a sailor, and since we are going to Australia, I can stow you aboard the ship. I will take care of you and bring you food and keep you safe."

And so, with nothing to lose, the woman accepted. Plus, she had wanted to see Australia anyway.

That very night the sailor took her aboard the ship, hiding her into a small compartment.
Each night he would bring her good food, a bottle of wine, and would make happy love to her until dawn.

Two weeks later she was found out by the captain during an inspection of the hold.

"Bloody hell! What are you doing?" the furious captain asked her .

"I have an agreement with one of your sailors," the woman said. "He brings me food and I get a trip to Australia."

"So you say," the captain says.

Her conscience got the better of her and she soon added heavily, "Also... he"s screwing me."

"He most certainly is, ma'am," said the captain. "This is the Portsmouth Ferry."

[William Shakespeare's sonnet pair that deals with the 4 elements (44-45) is anagrammed into 4 poems about the role each element plays in nature, with fitting acrostics.]

If the dull substance of my flesh were thought,
Injurious distance should not stop my way;
For then despite of space I would be brought,
From limits far remote where thou dost stay.
No matter then although my foot did stand
Upon the farthest earth removed from thee;
For nimble thought can jump both sea and land
As soon as think the place where he would be.
But ah! thought kills me that I am not thought,
To leap large lengths of miles when thou art gone,
But that so much of earth and water wrought
I must attend time's leisure with my moan,
Receiving nought by elements so slow
But heavy tears, badges of either's woe.

The other two, slight air and purging fire,
Are both with thee, wherever I abide;
The first my thought, the other my desire,
These present-absent with swift motion slide.
For when these quicker elements are gone
In tender embassy of love to thee,
My life, being made of four, with two alone
Sinks down to death, oppress'd with melancholy;
Until life's composition be recured
By those swift messengers return'd from thee,
Who even but now come back again, assured
Of thy fair health, recounting it to me:
This told, I joy; but then no longer glad,
I send them back again and straight grow sad.


The Four Forces

Ferocious flames! How hurtful, at their worst,
Incinerating forests in a flash,
Reducing with those mammoth, brutal bursts
Each tree into this barren pile of ash;
But often, fires of this major scope
Just judge the budding plant's attempt to cope -
And gift the strongest bulb that second hope.

As gloomy clouds go by like puffs of smoke,
I latch onto this muse they leave behind,
Remembering the moments they evoke,
The poignant thoughts which haunt my heavy mind.
But those become unravelled as I stare;
It's truly hard to grasp the When and Where -
For memories are fluent as the air.

When Nature had enough of summer strife
And bathes this meadow with a sweeping flood,
The most unhealthy weed might come to life,
Emerging in that puddle in the mud.
Rain can erode the mountain with its flow,
But tends to wash away the numbing woe -
Like wild weeds by the road, life needs to grow.

Eternal flame or cloud or stormy gloom
Are but null things to those within the earth;
Roots won't depart the quiet of her womb -
They've been below that gorgeous ground from birth.
How good it feels, in these embattled days,
To know that even when the sky is gray,
There is one solid thing that's here to stay.

Titanic Poem - 'The Destroyer'.

Out of the night it came, that menace of the seas,
Unmarked by sound and unobserved, its prey of souls to seize;
A pallid shape, dim in the fog, a monster, on it came.
And wallowed in the ocean path, its toll of deaths to claim.

All boasts of modern safeguards, mere affectations were;
Inventive minds it mocked and giant ships seemed dwarfs to her.
That mammoth ship, with armor plate, was but a cockle-shell,
And when its unseen hand reached out, with ease the giant fell.

And then it laughed; it closed its hand; then watched the work it wrought;
The frenzied screams of dying men, sweet music to it brought.
Unmoved it stood, with eager mien, while fifteen hundred souls
Went struggling down for evermore to rest in watery holes.

Its evil deed accomplished, it drew a conquering breath,
And all about the wreckage, a shadow cast of Death.
The mightiest of giant ships had just obeyed its nod,
And fifteen hundred souls their final voyage made to God.


'A Damaged Vessel' - The Unfit Leader

Into the light it came, a princess of the sea,
With silent grace it sleekly showed its might and majesty
But wait... it should not be this near! Yet nearer still it came;
The waiting rocks of Giglio prepared to stake their claim.

A crunch! resounded through the ship, the rocks tore through its side,
"Where is the captain? Find this man!" the frightened people cried.
A boss to give the signal for the lifeboats to be manned,
A stolid, steadfast man of status, someone who'd command.

A man to tell them what to do, who minded, was well versed,
Who'd activate that vital rule: 'Women and children first'!
"Where did the captain go?" demanded victims in distress;
They quizzed the crew but no one knew - all they could do was guess...

Fear and pandemonium were buffeting around,
And then that fateful shout of fear: "My God, she's going down!"
Some were doomed to be snuffed out, they'd live and laugh no more...
Meantime, Captain F. Schettino was safe and sound on shore.

Whose misadventur'd piteous overthrows
Doth with their death bury their parents' strife.

I looked to well-intentioned poetry

Josiah Winslow with:
What are the hallmarks of a good anagram?

In general, the appreciation of a high-quality anagram stems from the fact that it is such an outlandish coincidence that two related phrases should contain precisely the same letters. Many of the following attributes, constituting the hallmarks of a good anagram, are based upon this one principle.

The following has been paraphrased from erudite postings on the subject by Richard Brodie, William Tunstall-Pedoe, Richard Grantham and Jean Fontaine. Anagrammy-winning illustrations of each hallmark are on the right.


Relevance or reference to the subject is arguably the primary goal of anagramming. This generally involves the use of synonyms of key words from the subject in a paraphrase of, or commentary or joke about, the original. Occasionally, the anagram may even be the direct opposite in meaning (an antigram); however, anagrams that are neither synonymous with nor antonymous to their subjects are unlikely to be as widely appreciated.

Fire of London
Dinner of fool.
[nothing to do with it]
No finer flood.
[a disaster all right, but the wrong one]
Inferno of old.
[gets the disaster spot on]
(Jaybur, 2000)


The more directly apt an anagram is, the better it is likely to be received. An anagram that is indisputably true but that only indirectly suggests the nature of its subject is occasionally referred to as an ambigram, though where that line lies is highly subjective. On the other hand, indirect but unexpected/whimsical angles on subjects are often well received, and anagrams of this sort that excel in all other areas have frequently gone on to pick up Awards.

Madonna Louise Ciccone
I once made a conclusion.
[undoubtedly she did, but the
'gram is far too big a stretch]
A cool, demonic nuisance.
[certainly apt!]
One cool dance musician.
[but this one is both apt AND
highly specific]
(David Bourke, 2000)

Grammatical correctness.

The better and more natural an anagram's grammar and expression, the more strongly it will convey its message. Even in the case of very short anagrams (where complete sentences are harder to form), something that sounds like a meaningful sentence element is to be preferred - simply reordering the words can make a big difference. Condensations that sound like newspaper headlines are also acceptable. Longer anagrams should have impeccable grammar, however, because the scope of having so many letters allows great flexibility in construction.

A carton of cigarettes
Oft got a irate cancers.
[atrocious grammar]
O, air to get cancer fast.
[not perfect but acceptably
I got a taste for cancer.
[but this one is grammatically
(Meyran Kraus, 2002)

Avoidance of incorrect spelling.

This detracts from the quality of the anagram and makes it seem contrived or the author seem semi-literate. Regional variations in English (such as color/colour and realize/realise) are perfectly acceptable and can often be exploited to improve an anagram; uncommon alternative spellings for words are also acceptable, but not preferred. Old-fashioned spellings (hath, doth, aye, nay, 'tis) and shortened words like 'n' (for "and"), e'er or ma'am may also be employed, but these (especially 'n') are usually best avoided.

I let go torrents o' gas.
[the use of "o'" is a minor flaw]
(Larry Brash, 2000)

Clever use of punctuation.

Whilst punctuation is often best avoided, it can definitely improve an anagram if cleverly used. There has been some debate as to whether the addition of an ampersand (&) qualifies as valid punctuation, or if this constitutes cheating; this is largely in the eye of the beholder, but to be safe it is best to avoid adding ampersands where possible.

Medicinal marijuana
A cure? I'm in a damn jail.
[works well as two brief phrases]
(Larry Brash, 1999)

Minimal use of interjections.

Whilst the use of "oh", "O", "eh", "hey", "ah", "ahem", "oy", "shhh", "OK" and so on can be a handy way of getting rid of leftover letters, excessive use of this device will damage an anagram. Ideally there should be none at all, but the use of a single, minor interjection (usually "O" or "Oh") in an otherwise excellent anagram is unlikely to be considered a major flaw.

The Great Pyramid of Cheops
My God! Perfect Pharaoh site!
[in this case, the interjection
actually enhances the anagram]
(Richard Brodie, 2000)


The shorter an anagram is, the more unlikely and thus impressive its existence. Even as few as thirteen letters can be arranged in over a billion different ways, and though most of those arrangements are meaningless the implications for larger texts (even 20 to 30 letters) start to become clear. By about 60-70 letters (and particularly in the hundreds or thousands of letters) there are so many possible permutations that the clever coincidence that gives a short anagram its value has long since disappeared, and has been replaced by an appreciation of the author's skill.

La vie.
(Adrian Hickford, 2002)

Careful use of non-keywords.

If the leftover letters fail to do justice to the anagram, the best keyword in the world will not save it. Apart from their potential to cause grammatical difficulties, leftovers can ruin an anagram by providing too much information in the form of an indirect addition or unnecessary description. If no apt or useful additions can be found, it is generally best to keep words made from leftovers as unobtrusive as possible.

A skeleton in the cupboard
The artisan locked up bone.
[good keywords, but 'artisan' is
way off]
And lock up the irate bones.
[better result with same keywords,
but 'irate' is still wayward]
Bones are locked up in that.
[non-keywords are now spot on]
(Allan Morley, 2001)

Well-mixed letters.

Repeating a key word (or a significant fragment of one) from the original in the subsequent anagram detracts from the cleverness of the result. The repetition of "the" and other short non-keywords is acceptable, of course. Occasionally, repetition is used deliberately for effect and the result is sometimes referred to as a parallelogram.

These girls are barely legal.
The "girls" are really beagles.
[deliberate repetition for effect]
(Richard Grantham, 2000)

Avoidance of contrived subject texts.

The best anagrams are those where the subject is a pre-existing, well-defined text. If the anagrammatist has resorted to making significant modifications to the original in order to make the anagram work, forcing a coincidence rather than trying to discover those generated by the subject alone, then the result is considerably weakened in the eyes of many. Altering a subject by adding the definite or indefinite article, or a person's middle name or title, is a much less serious flaw.

A Nintendo Gameboy
Made to be annoying.
[adding an "a" made this one work]
(James H. Young, 2001)


An anagram should be self-explanatory; it should not need any extra explanation or comment. It is best to concentrate for the most part on subjects that are well-known enough for the anagram to be clearly and widely understood; occasionally, however, the subject matter of an otherwise outstanding anagram may be obscure/regional or the anagram may refer to a little-known aspect of the original, in which case it may validly be accompanied by some brief details. In the majority of cases, however, an anagram that requires an explanation is likely to be weak.

Giovanni Pergolesi
I love opera singing!
[here, the anagram itself acts
as sufficient explanation]
(Meyran Kraus, 2001)


Be it witty, rude, sarcastic or whimsical, humour will always improve an anagram - especially if the punchline contains a real surprise. Rude anagrams are a particular favourite, but please remember they aren't to everyone's taste.

He's a legend in his own mind
Neil Diamond, when he sings.
(Tom Myers, 2002)

What are the hallmarks of a bad anagram?

Hi! The name is Josiah Winslow, and I'm a newcomer in the world of anagrams. I thought I would point out my flaws in earlier, unreleased ones. (I would also like to fix other non-satisfactory anagrams.)

I. Miscalculation of letters. Don't worry, this is quite common in some beginner anagrams. An embarassing leftover "x" or "z", or maybe a left out "t" or "s".

Sal Tuscany
Santa Clus y [leftover y and leftout a]

II. Usage of old spellings. Try not to use "thee", "hath", or "thou art", for example. I can't blame you when you say that the writers of the KJV Bible used good English, but not good enough for modern standards!

They demise some evidence
Doth mine eyes decieve me? [I'm pretty sure that that spelling is rarely used anymore]

III. Putting a large chunk of the subject in the anagram. The source of this one says that "repeating a key word...detracts from the cleverness of the result". I certainly agree.

IV. Yoda-grammar. Bad grammar you must avoid.

The outcome, it's by halfway. I weary. The force - always may it be with you. [this uses it twice, in both the subject and anagram]

V. Disposal of numbers in the anagram. Although this can make it 63,720,000,200,020,002,002,200,019,992,000,200,220,012,000,200,120,012,002 times easier, it is better to write "sixty-three septendecillion, seven hundred twenty sexdecillion, two hundred quattuordecillion, twenty tredecillion, two duodecillion, two undecillion, two hundred decillion, nineteen nonillion, nine hundred ninety-two octillion, two hundred sextillion, two hundred twenty quintillion, twelve quadrillion, two hundred billion, one hundred twenty million, twelve thousand, and two."

VI. URLs in the anagram text. For more information, go to http://www.anagram.com/url-overuse.exe (it gets rid of three w's). This is equivalent to an annoying spam message online. It is not needed whatsoever.

VII. Creation of new medicine. Metanasonexplomnopticrine has not been invented yet, but the possibility that it might is not a valid reason to use it in an anagram.

VIII. Excessive repetition. Very bad error. Very boring error. No good error.

IX. Screaming excessively. Don't scream too much, like "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh" or "yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww!" It's a common error, but it's nothing to be ashamed of.

X. Creating fake names. Sure, maybe there's a desert island called Tarraccanaaomipattraa, and it might be home to a woman named Elsinorious, but that alone is not enough for her inclusion in an anagram.

XI. Using aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaallllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll of the above tricks at once. Tribniaites (or whaaaaaatevvvahhhh thee calls them) are the common offenders. Tribniaites are bad. Tribniaites aren't good. They ignore that "repeating a key word (or a significant fragment of one) from the original in the subsequent anagram detracts from the cleverness of the result", and yet they see it every day after they take their Trixambaris (a common name for guys who do that is Sallalia Grammanima). You should put them to death immediately. ESPECIALLY if it ends in strings of annoyingly repetitious jjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj's, kvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkvkkkk's, bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbpppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppppp's, dddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddddnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnntttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt's, lllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmcccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccccc's, ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu's, oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii's, and sssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss's.

Who'd Be A Police Officer in the UK!

How do you tell the difference between a British Police Officer, an Australian Police Officer and an American Police Officer?

First - Let's pose the following question:

You are on duty, walking down a deserted street late at night.

Suddenly, an armed man with a huge knife appears around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises the knife, and lunges.

You are carrying a Glock .50, and you are an expert shot, however you have just a split second to react before he reaches you.

What do you do?

Firstly the policeman must consider the assailant's Human Rights.

Does he look poor or oppressed?

Is he newly arrived in this country and perhaps doesn't understand the law?

Have I ever done anything to him that would provoke him into wanting to attack me?

Am I dressed provocatively?

Should I run away?

Could I perhaps swing my gun like a club and dislodge the knife from the man's hand?

Should I attempt to negotiate with him to discuss what he's doing wrong?

Does the Glock .50 have the appropriate 11 safety devices built into it?

Why am I armed with a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of extreme message does this send to society?

Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he merely be content just to wound me?

If I were to grab his knees and hold on, would he still want to kill me?

If I raise my gun and he turns and runs away, do I get blamed if he falls over, cracks his head and breaks his neck?

If I shoot and wound him, and then lose the resulting court case, does he have the opportunity to sue me, cost me my job, my credibility and the loss of the family home?

Couples In Conflict.

'Cash, check or card?' I enquired, after bagging up an item the lady customer was purchasing.
As she looked for her purse, I noticed a remote control for a television in her bag.
'So, do you always carry your TV remote in your bag?' I asked jokingly.
'No,' she chuckled, 'but my husband refused to come shopping with me, and I figured this was the most evil thing I could do to him legally.'


I am never going to understand females.
I just cannot understand how you can take boiling hot wax, pour it onto your upper thigh, rip all the hair out by its roots, yet still be afraid of a spider.


A couple drove along a country road for several miles, not saying anything.
An earlier discussion had led to an argument and neither of them wanted to concede their position.
As they passed a farmyard full of donkeys, goats, and pigs, the husband snorted sarcastically, 'Relatives of yours?'
'Yep,' the wife replied, 'in-laws.'


A husband read an article to his wife saying women use twice as many words a day as men.
The wife replied, 'That's because females have to repeat everything twice to men.'
The husband turned to his wife and asked, 'What?'


A married couple were having problems at home and were consciously giving each other the cool, silent treatment.
Suddenly, the man looked at the clock and realised he'd need his wife to wake him for an early business flight next morning.

Not wanting to be first to break the silence (i.e: lose a heroic victory!) he scribbled on a piece of paper: 'Please wake me at 5:10 AM.' He left it where he knew she'd find it.

The following morning, the man woke up, only to discover it was nine o'clock and he'd missed his flight.

Furious, he was about to go and ask why his wife had not woken him, when he noticed a note by the bed. The note read, 'It's 5:10 AM . Wake up.'

Men are just not equipped for these kinds of conflicts.

My Grandfather's Clock

My grandfather's clock
Was too large for the shelf,
So it stood ninety years on the floor;
It was taller by half
Than the old man himself,
Though it weighed not a pennyweight more.

Of the day that he was born,
And was always his treasure and pride;
But it stopped short
Never to go again,
When the old man died.

By the Tommy Bahama Company;
A lot like the steel one
The young braggart displayed
On the high-fashion show on TV.
"Oh, It works under the water so perfectly;
One year, and it still has a ticking sound!"
Grandfather tried his only this afternoon;
That's how our old fellow drowned.

February by Sara Teasdale

They spoke of him I love
With cruel words and gay;
My lips kept silent guard
On all I could not say.

I heard, and down the street
The lonely trees in the square
Stood in the winter wind
Patient and bare.

I heard . . . oh voiceless trees
Under the wind, I knew
The eager terrible spring
Hidden in you.


A Little Rodent Riddle by ned

A groundhog name of Phil,
Questioned once a year;
Everyone's intent to ask
"Is nicer weather near?"

Bolting from his elite hole
To render by decree;
Will his hidden butt, perhaps,
Kill serendipity?

Even tho' it was
A dreary lurid day,
He saw his shadow underneath;
Tut-tut! Spring's weeks away!

A lawyer went hunting in rural Scotland. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field.

As the lawyer was climbing over the fence, an aging farmer drove up on his tractor and asked the lawyer what he was doing.

"I shot a duck and it went in this field", the lawyer said, "And now I'm going to get it."

"No, this here's my property", said the farmer, "And I say you aren't coming over."

"I'm one of the nation's best lawyers", said the indignant attorney, "And if you won't give me that duck, I'll sue you and take your money and all that you own."

The elderly farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you haven't heard how we do things in Scotland. We handle everyday disagreements like this with the Three Kick Rule."

"Really?", the lawyer asked cautiously, "And what is that?"

"First I kick you three times", said the farmer, "And then you get three at me, and so on again, until someone gives up."

The attorney quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the codger. He agreed to the terms.

The farmer went up to the city man. His first blow planted the toe of his heavy boot into the lawyer's groin. The lawyer was flat on his belly.

His second nearly ripped the nose off his face. Then the farmer landed an unmerciful blow to his kidney nearly causing him to give up, but he didn't.

The irate lawyer summoned every bit of his will, got to his feet and said, "Now it's my turn, you tosser!"

The farmer smiled and said, "Naw, I give up. You can have the bird!"

A London magistrate in a hearing room at the county courthouse was taking testimony from a woman regarding her pending divorce proceedings, and asked her, "What are the grounds for this?"

"About fifty acres", she testified, "And a nice little home in the middle of the property and a bottoms with a windmill and a pretty little stream running by a pond."

"No," the magistrate said gently, "What is the foundation of this case?"

"Why, I think it is made with concrete blocks under brick and mortar.", the wife testified.

"I mean", he said, frowning, "What are your relations like?"

"I have two aunts, a nephew, and my uncle that live here in town. So do my husband's parents."

"Do you have a real grudge, Ma'am?", he asked dryly.

"Lord no," the wife replied thoughtfully, "We have a little two-car carport and have never really needed one."

"Please. . ." he tried again; "Is there any infidelity in your marriage?"

"Oh yes, with both my grandson and my daughter; they have newfangled stereo sets. We don't necessarily like the music, but still the answer to your question is yes."

"Has your husband ever beat you up?", he asked attempting to get at the truth finally.

"Oh yes", she testified steadily, "I know he gets up earlier than I do about twice a week."

Wholly in frustration, the magistrate finally huffed sharply, "OK lady, then why did you want the divorce?!"

"Oh, I don't," she replied fretfully. "Frankly I've never wanted one. My husband does. That cloddish old dolt says he can't communicate with me!!"
