Tony Crafter with:
Roy, a retired widower, met Trudy at a singles club meeting and, although she was a good deal younger than him, they discovered they enjoyed each other's company.

After several weeks meeting for coffee, Roy asked her out for dinner and, much to his delight, she said 'yes'. They had a lovely evening and dined at the most romantic restaurant in town.

Despite his age, they ended up at his place for drinks. Things continued along a natural course and, the age gap being no inhibitor, Trudy soon joined Roy for a most pleasurable romp in his bedroom.

As they lay basking in the glow of the magic moments they had shared, each was lost for a time in their own thoughts...

Roy was thinking: 'If I'd known she was still a virgin, I'd have been gentler.'

Trudy was thinking: 'If I'd known he could still do it, I'd have taken my tights off!'


On her fiftieth wedding anniversary, Kate found the flimsy black negligee she had worn on her honeymoon night and tried it on. She then went jiggling off to her husband, Vincent, and asked, "Hey, Vince, do you remember this?"

He looked up from his newspaper and said; "Hell, I certainly do, Kate! You wore that very same negligee on the first night of our marriage."

Kate grinned , "That's right; and do you also recall just what words you said to me that night?"

He smirked and replied, "Yes, I recall them. I said: Oh baby, I am gonna suck the life right out of those breasts and screw your brains out."

She giggled and retorted, "Why, that's precisely what you said, Vince! And now it's fifty years later, and I'm in that same negligee, so - what have you got to say to me tonight?"

Vincent looked her up and down and said, "Mission accomplished."

Adie Pena with:

I was five and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and I wore white
He would always win the fight

Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down.

Seasons came and changed the time
When I grew up, I called him mine
He would always laugh and say
Remember when we used to play?


Music played, and people sang
Just for me, the church bells rang.

Now he's gone, I don't know why
And 'til this day, sometimes I cry
He didn't even say goodbye
He didn't take the time to lie.




Optimum bloodshed; minimum kindness. How death had just withheld simple hopes.

We hear Bang Bang in a small Sutherland Springs church. We see twenty-six dead (that includes an unborn baby).

We hear Bang Bang at Sandy Hook Elementary School, Newtown. We see twenty-seven dead.

We hear Bang Bang in Virginia Tech, Blacksburg. We see thirty-two dead.

We hear Bang Bang in Pulse, a gay Orlando club. We see forty-nine dead.

We hear Bang Bang from the thirty-second floor of Mandalay Bay. We see fifty-eight dead.

God! How pitiful. How sickening.

We see doomsday with the damp hogwash of mighty NRA.


Dharam with:
When a kind man in Macon, Georgia comes upon a toothy dog attacking a young tot, he quickly hops in to help, grabs the dog by the head, and throttles it with his own two hands. After that, he applies bandages to the tyke.

A newspaper reporter sees the incident. He expresses congratulations, and then vows the headline the following day would be, "Local Man Saves Tot by Killing Vicious Animal."

The hero protests the fuss, as he tells the journalist he didn't come from Macon. The journalist says, "Whoops." He adds that then the header would show, "Georgia Man Saves Kid by Killing Sharp-Toothed Dog".

The hero rebuts, "Whoa, hold it right there - I'm from Connecticut."

In a huff, the perturbed journalist scoffs, "Wow! By this update, the header should be, 'Yankee Murders Family Pup'."
There was a haunted house right on the outskirts of a college town, which was avoided by all the townsfolk - the evil resident ghost was feared by all.

However, an enterprising journalist decided to get the scoop of the day by photographing this fearsome phantom. When he entered the building, armed with only a camera, a ghost descended upon him, clanking chains, etc. He told the ghost, "I mean no harm - I just want your picture." The ghost was quite happy at this chance to make headlines and posed for a number of ghostly shots.

The happy journalist rushed back to his dark room and began developing the photos. Unfortunately, they all turned out to be black and underexposed.

So, what's the moral of this story?

Sometimes, the spirit is willing but the flash is weak.

THE SPECIAL CATEGORY [3 nominations]

Tony Crafter with:
A Poem by
Bishop Reginald Heber

A knight and a lady once met in a grove
While each was in quest of a fugitive love;
A river ran mournfully murmuring by,
And they wept in its waters for sympathy.

"Oh, never was knight such a sorrow that bore!"
"Oh, never was maid so deserted before!"
"From life and its woes let us instantly fly,
And jump in together for company!"

They searched for an eddy that suited the deed,
But here was a bramble and there was a weed;
"How tiresome it is!" said the fair, with a sigh;
So they sat down to rest them in company.

They gazed at each other, the maid and the knight;
How fair was her form, and how goodly his height!
"One mournful embrace," sobbed the youth, "ere we die!
So kissing and crying kept company.

"Oh, had I but loved such an angel as you!"
"Oh, had but my swain been a quarter as true!"
"To miss such perfection how blinded was I!"
Sure now they were excellent company!

At length spoke the lass, 'twixt a smile and a tear,
"The weather is cold for a watery bier;
When summer returns we may easily die,
Till then let us sorrow in company."


Ed Ache

If there's a head torture that's worse than a snore,
I'd love to know just what exactly that is,
While I lie awake to my wife's nasal roar,
She slumbers contented in comatose bliss.

I plead with her, "Anne, show some sympathy please,
I have to get up for my shift in the morn,
Yet, dear, you continue to snore and to wheeze
And I'm still awake when the birds sing at dawn!"

She vexedly scoffs, "Ed, quit the dumb cheeping,
When you get grumpy, it is such a bore,
It isn't my fault you have trouble sleeping,
And despite what you say, no way do I snore!"

My reader, I swear this is madly untrue,
That woman, she's making me haggard and ill,
For when she gets going, the row from her tubes
Is worse than the din of a pneumatic drill!

I have tried everything I can to curb her,
From hugs to a pinch to a full body shake,
But nothing I try can darn well perturb her,
Short of a bomb and maybe an earthquake.

Divorcing's the answer for weary me,
I can't bear my headachy bed any more;
For there are two people I wedded, we see:
My dear, calm wife and that mad shrew who snores!

Ellie with:

Adie Pena with:
The White House
by Claude McKay

Your door is shut against my tightened face,
And I am sharp as steel with discontent;
But I possess the courage and the grace
To bear my anger proudly and unbent.
The pavement slabs burn loose beneath my feet,
And passion rends my vitals as I pass,
A chafing savage, down the decent street;
Where boldly shines your shuttered door of glass.
Oh, I must search for wisdom every hour,
Deep in my wrathful bosom sore and raw,
And find in it the superhuman power
To hold me to the letter of your law!
Oh, I must keep my heart inviolate
Against the potent poison of your hate.
The White House
by The Donald

Perhaps I'll ruin you -- the country Somalia,
Rotten suspects that massacre and slay.
Emigre upheavals, a weakened Syria,
Shipped out now, refused since yesterday.
Immigrants stopped, too, from yonder Yemen,
Detestable people who bomb and behead.
Entering visitors from Libya, then
Not humane, the hostages must be dead!
Throw in the list of vagabonds from Chad,
The thugs they put away can't ever win.
Rogues cut off from Iran, youth so bad;
United, our States won't let those convicts in.
Muslims aside, now here's North Korea
Pyongyang's hateful leader has diarrhoea!
