eq1st - Tony Crafter with:
A woman goes into a fishing shop to buy a rod and reel for her son's birthday.

She doesn't know what to get, so she just picks one and goes to the counter, where a salesman is standing, wearing dark shades.

She says, "Can you tell me anything about this rod?"

He says, "Madam, I'm completely blind; but if you'll drop it on the counter, I can tell you what you want to know from the sound it makes."

She doesn't believe him but drops it down anyway.

He says, "That is a six-foot Shakespeare graphite rod with a Zebco 404 reel and 10-lb line. It's a good all-round combination, and it's actually on sale this week at £42.00."

She says, "Amazing! You can tell all that, just by the sound of it dropping on the counter? I'll take it!"

As she opens her purse, her credit card drops on the floor.

"Hey, that sounds like a Visa card," he says.

As the lady bends down to pick up the card, a rogue fart slips out.

At first she is very embarrassed, but then realises there is no way the blind salesman would know exactly who'd farted.

The man rings up the sale and says, "That will be £58.50."

The woman is totally confused by this and says, "Didn't you say it was on sale for £42.00? How did you get £58.50?"

"The Duck Caller is £14.00, and the Fish Bait is £2.50."

=

Irish tourists Paddy and Murphy are walking down London's Carnaby Street when they see a notice in a shop window stating:

'Suits £15.00, shirts £2.40, trousers £2.80.'

Paddy says, "Hell, would ya just look at dat now, Murphy! We could buy lots and lots of dis English gear, and when we get back to Ireland we could offload it at a massive profit and make ourselves a feckin' fortune!"

"To be sure!" exclaims Murphy, "We could be real business typhoons so we could!"

"Ok, so here's what we'll do," says Paddy. "When we go into da shop don't say anythin' at all, just let me do all da talkin', because if the ladies and fellers there hear you babblin' away in that Irish accent they might not serve us, so oi'll talk to them in me best snobby English accent."

They both go into the shop and, in his finest English accent, Paddy says to the shop assistant, "Good afternoon, old bean. I'd like to order 50 suits at £15.00, 150 shirts at £2.40 and 50 pairs of trousers at £2.80, if you'd be kind enough to arrange that. Thank you so much."

The assistant hesitates for a moment, then says, "Er, are you Irish, sir?"

"Ah begorra... that oi am, lad!" exclaims the puzzled Paddy. "Now, how the hell did ya know that?"

"Because," says the man, "this is a dry cleaners..."

Two nuns from Norway had just gotten off the Staten Island Ferry and one nun said to the other, "I heard that Americans eat dogs."

"My, how odd!" her companion replied. "But if we shall live here, we might as well do as the Americans."

"Quite" nodded the mother superior wisely, noticing a hot dog vendor nearby. They walked to the cart. "Two dogs, if you please, sir," she said.

The vendor smiled obligingly, placing the hot dogs into foil as he handed them over the counter.

Excitedly, the nuns hurried to a bench and began to unwrap their 'dogs'.

The mother superior stared at it a while and began to blush meekly. Then, whispering cautiously, she said, "What part‚€¶ did you get‚€¶?"

=

A happy older couple, both widowed, had been going out a long time. Urged on by friends to get married, they decided that it was high time to do so.

Before the nuptials, they went out to dinner and had a conversation regarding how marriage should work, discussing money decisions, living arrangements, and such.

Finally, the old man thought that this was the time he ought to broach the subject of their physical relationship.

"How do you feel about sex?" he turned and asked, rather tentatively.

"I would prefer it infrequently" she replied shyly.

The man sat a moment, cleaned his glasses, then leaned over towards her and whispered, "Is that one word or two?"

THE SPECIAL CATEGORY

1st - Meyran Kraus with:

[Last year, during the 10th anniversary of the 9\11 attacks at the newly completed memorial site in NYC, one of the poems recited at the ceremony was "Turn Again To Life". Below is a poetic anagram of it inspired by a Biblical quote; the anagram also contains a visual tribute.]


Turn Again To Life, written by Mary Lee Hall

If I should die and leave you here a while,
Be not like others, sore undone, who keep
Long vigil by the silent dust, and weep.
For my sake - turn again to life and smile,
Nerving thy heart and trembling hand to do
Something to comfort other hearts than thine.
Complete these dear unfinished tasks of mine
And I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

=

No vehemence may bug me once I'd look
In one key omen in a holy book:
"Here, in the fray, the rise of my fair men
Upon that day may toughen David's den."
It's why I won't recede - I will not break,
But, still reluctant, shall repel one ache -
The firestorm and the despair it left -
To purge the grieving of its damning heft.
Shine, fallen ones that Armageddon's roar
Undid in hours 'neath the walls it tore.


[For the 11th anniversary of 9\11, the anagram contains a visualization of the Twin Towers - and the number 11 - if one highlights the Biblical quote that inspired it, "In that day I will restore the fallen house of David. I will repair its damaged walls":]

No vehemence may bug me once I'd look
In one key omen in a holy book:
"Here, in the fray, the rise of my fair men
Upon that day may toughen David's den."
It's why I won't recede - I will not break,
But, still reluctant, shall repel one ache -
The firestorm and the despair it left -
To purge the grieving of its damning heft.
Shine, fallen ones that Armageddon's roar
Undid in hours 'neath the walls it tore.

[The quote is from Amos 9:11, a passage named "A Promise of Restoration".]

RURAL RIVAL
Al 'Banjo' North vs. Frank Furter

I heard tell some hillbilly boy
Played super-mean banjo,
They said, "He's just the tops!" but I
Snapped, "Sorry; that ain't so,
'Cos I'm the greatest of 'em all,
An' not this country Joe!"
Then I went off to show my rival
How to play banjo.

I found him lollin' up a tree,
(His ma lolled up there too),
A banjo propped up on his knee,
So I proposed a duel.

We played a duel on 'Yankee Doodle',
An' 'Old Yeller' too.
His ma yelled, "Hell, ya both strums well!"
I gasped, "Wow, ma'am, aren't you
That vamp I picked-up in a bar
When drunkenly I kissed ya?"
She answered, "Yep... you're my lad's pa,
An' I'm yo' long-lost sister!"

They licked the platter clean.

Her mate swallowed up the mutton;

And repositioned all her buttons.

DEFINITIONS: from a unique, or a highly female perspective.

AIRHEAD - What a woman intentionally becomes when pulled over by a police officer.

ARGUMENT - A discussion that occurs when you are right. He just hasn't realized it yet.

BANGS - A fringe of hair hanging from the top of your face. A reminder of how much you liked that ordinary,
old hairstyle, or the one you will have, once the damn bangs actually grow out. They come in four lengths:
short, long, awkward, and a constant irritant in the eyes.

BARBECUE - You bought the groceries, washed lettuce, chopped tomatoes, diced onions, marinated some meat and
cleaned everything up, but curiously he 'made dinner' himself .

BLONDE JOKES - Jokes that are very, very short so that a man can understand them.

gene in your DNA.

HARDWARE STORE - Similar to a black hole in space. If he goes in, he isn't gonna come out any time soon.

LIPSTICK - On your lips, a coloured substance to enhance. If you detect it on his collar, however, the colour

A ROYAL FLUSH!
Joe Rosochacki

The ‚€˜Assuies' are levying a tax on water output, so called the ‚€˜flushing tax',
Some are not flushing as much do reduce their water bill,
Some are going "outside" in their outback, if you will,
In this world wide economic slow down you can't be lax.
Some businesses are getting to point of developing ‚€˜waterless toilets',
The composting toilets are great for saving water and money,
They come in a variety of styles and you have much to gain,

With the average household flushing up to 35,000 litres of potable water down the drain each year,
Ecoflo waterless toilets will save you from flushing water and money down the drain.

This is about as good as it gets,
I hope that this will not lead banning of the term flushing,
Because where will the USTA US Open be played?
In Compost Meadows?
That doesn't sound right.

A ROYAL BLUSH!

Harry of Wales partied hard, out in Las Vegas;
Off with the idiot's Y-Fronts, to bare his cute white ass.
Unwisely doing a strip billiards shoot-out with convivial fools,
Soon we media devotees, too, were eyeing the family jewels!
Extremely lagered at two, about in un-hallowed halls
On iPhone, going to tag the peewee 3.00 cuestick and balls!

Following was a leggy Kate's topless image, out in Closer/Chi,
Worst of tea times for the British Royal Family!
In a huge private chateau in the South of France,
Now we see a woman, with a telephoto lens, from a 500 distance,
Daring to flash her glamorous naughty exposed bits;
Suggestively exhibiting to a nation her two "commoner" tits!

Old Berlusconi's tainted mag eventually document a sweet Duchess undone;
Rupert Murdoch got the odd-one-out Prince's tush in the scandalous Sun!

My Favorite Things
from The Sound of Music

Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens;
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens;
Brown paper packages tied up with strings -
These are a few of my favorite things.

Cream colored ponies and crisp apple streudels;
Doorbells and sleigh bells and schnitzel with noodles;
Wild geese that fly with the moon on their wings -
These are a few of my favorite things.

Girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes;
Snowflakes that stay on my nose and eyelashes;
Silver white winters that melt into springs -
These are a few of my favorite things.

When the dog bites,
When the bee stings,
When I'm feeling sad,
I simply remember my favorite things,
And then I don't feel so bad.

[Repeat all verses]
=
Silver-Tress Delights

Hospital slippers, bathrobes, needles for knitting;
Walkers, stethoscopes, and new dental fittings;
Soggy "People" magazines tied up with strings -
These are a few of my favorite things.

Hot plasters, towelettes, comfort pads for bunions;
No spicy spaghetti, salt or fat added, meals made with onions;
Cotton sheets, heat pads, the foods they bring -
These are a few of my favorite things.

Back pains, demented brains, with no need for sinning;
Arthritis illness, eyeglasses, silver hair that is thinning;
We won't ever dwell on our own shrunken frames,
When we remember our favorite things.

When my disc aches,
When my hip breaks,
When my eyes grow dim,
If I'll remember all the swell times I've had,
Then I won't feel so sad.

Had a vague, rather bothersome notion;

Beau
by Jimmy Stewart

He never came to me when I would call
Unless I had a tennis ball,
Or he felt like it,
But mostly he didn't come at all.

When he was young
He never learned to heel
Or sit or stay,
He did things his way.

Discipline was not his bag
But when you were with him things sure didn't drag.
He'd dig up a rosebush just to spite me,
And when I'd grab him, he'd turn and bite me.

He bit lots of folks from day to day,
The delivery boy was his favorite prey.
The gas man wouldn't read our meter,
He said we owned a real man-eater.

He set the house on fire
But the story's long to tell.
Suffice it to say that he survived
And the house survived as well.

On the evening walks, and Gloria took him,
He was always first out the door.
The Old One and I brought up the rear
Because our bones were sore.

He would charge up the street with Mom hanging on,
What a beautiful pair they were!
And if it was still light and the tourists were out,
They created a bit of a stir.

But every once in a while, he would stop in his tracks
And with a frown on his face look around.
It was just to make sure that the Old One was there
And would follow him where he was bound.

We are early-to-bedders at our house--
I guess I'm the first to retire.
And as I'd leave the room he'd look at me
And get up from his place by the fire.

He knew where the tennis balls were upstairs,
And I'd give him one for a while.
He would push it under the bed with his nose
And I'd fish it out with a smile.

And before very long
He'd tire of the ball
And be asleep in his corner
In no time at all.

And there were nights when I'd feel him
Climb upon our bed
And lie between us, And I'd pat his head.

And there were nights when I'd feel this stare
And I'd wake up and he'd be sitting there
And I reach out my hand and stroke his hair.
And sometimes I'd feel him sigh
and I think I know the reason why.

He would wake up at night
And he would have this fear
Of the dark, of life, of lots of things,
And he'd be glad to have me near.

And now he's dead.
And there are nights when I think I feel him
Climb upon our bed and lie between us,
And I pat his head.

And there are nights when I think
I feel that stare
And I reach out my hand to stroke his hair,
But he's not there.

Oh, how I wish that wasn't so,
I'll always love a dog named Beau.

The Legend of the Rainbow Bridge
(edited...but still mushy)

It is said just between the Earth and Heaven is the divine place known as the Rainbow Bridge.

When the household pet who has been attached to someone here on the Earth dies, he is whisked heavenward toward the Rainbow Bridge, while the bitter devastated human hides out and whines in the shadow of the thief Death.

Hush, have faith. There are the awaited wide meadows, the shaded willows, the wooded forests, the hillsides, with the thousand adventures for our special friends so they can play together with all the other animals.

There is enough food, water and sunshine at the Rainbow Bridge that the pets are warm and comfortable.

All the animals that had died ill or old, weak or withered, are restored in a heartbeat to youthful health and vigor; likewise, all those who were hurt or maimed are made unhurt and whole again, and wide awake, just as we remember them before death, in our dreams of times gone by.

The animals are happy and content, but there's something lacking - someone dear to them, who was left behind. They must be dutiful, waiting for us humans to arrive.

The multitude of kittens and puppies all run, play, and roughhouse together like childhood buddies, but the time comes eventually when an individual animal hesitates and looks off into the distance. His bright eyes twinkle, his ears listen, and his whole healthful body starts to shake with enthusiasm. He begins to run from the group, heading toward his familiar human friend, like a whirlwind over the green meadows, the legs underneath him carrying him faster and faster.

You have been identified. You whistle loud and shout the pet's name, and when you and the special friend are united again, hugs will wreath his neck in joyous reunion, never to be divided again. Your own beautified face will be washed with happy wet whiskered kisses, while you will caress his beloved head with unwrinkled hands, and you will look once more into the wise and trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

And then both of you will walk in bliss and happiness across the Rainbow Bridge together.
