    The Atheist And The Bear

    George, an athiest, was walking through the beautiful northern Michigan woods. Suddenly, he noticed a big bear running toward him. George took off running, trying to out-run the quickly-moving bear.

    But the bear caught him and threw him to the ground. The bear stood up on his back legs, growled and was getting ready to pounce on George.

    George cried out, "God, help me!"

    The sky opened up and a loud voice boomed from the heavens, "You have denied my existence all these years and now you want my help? Does that mean that you are a Christian?"

    George answered, "I'm not a Christian but could you help me out here and make the bear a Chirstian?"

    The sky flashed and the sounds of thunder echoed through the north woods. The bear stepped back away from George.

    The Bear put his paws together and said, "Lord, bless this food that I'm about to eat....."

    Hurricane preparedness

    [With apologies to Floridians]

    Subject: Hurricane preparedness

    Attention all Floridians:

    We're about to enter the peak of the hurricane season. Any day now, you're going to turn on the TV and see a weather person pointing to some radar blob out in the Atlantic Ocean and making two basic meteorological points.

    (1) There is no need to panic.

    (2) We could all be killed.

    Yes, hurricane season is an exciting time to be in Florida. If you're
    new to the area, you're probably wondering what you need to do to prepare for the
    possibility that we'll get hit by "the big one." Based on our insurance industry experiences, we recommend that you follow this simple three-step hurricane preparedness plan:

    STEP 1: Buy enough food and bottled water to last your family for at least
    three days.

    STEP 2: Put these supplies into your car.

    STEP 3: Drive to Nebraska and remain there until Halloween. Unfortunately, statistics show that most people will not follow this sensible plan. Most people will foolishly stay here in Florida.

    We'll start with one of the most important hurricane preparedness items:

    HOMEOWNERS' INSURANCE: If you own a home, you must have hurricane
    insurance. Fortunately, this insurance is cheap and easy to get, as long as your home meets two basic requirements:

    (1) It is reasonably well-built, and

    (2) It is located in Wisconsin

    Unfortunately, if your home is located in Florida, or any other area that might actually be hit by a hurricane, most insurance companies would prefer not to sell you hurricane insurance, because then they might be required to pay YOU money, and that is certainly not why they got into the insurance business in the first place. So you'll have to scrounge around for an insurance company, which will charge you an annual premium roughly equal to the replacement value of your house. At any moment, this company can drop you like used dental floss.

    SHUTTERS: Your house should have hurricane shutters on all the windows, all
    the doors, There are several types of shutters, with advantages and disadvantages:

    Plywood shutters: The advantage is that, because you make them yourself, they're cheap.

    Sheet-metal shutters: The advantage is that these work well, once you get them all up. The disadvantage is that once you get them all up, your hands will be useless bleeding stumps, and it will be December.

    Roll-down shutters: The advantages are that they're very easy to use, and will definitely protect your house. The disadvantage is that you will have to sell your house to pay for them.

    Hurricane-proof windows: These are the newest wrinkle in hurricane protection: They look like ordinary windows, but they can withstand hurricane winds! You can be sure of this, because the salesman says so. He lives in Nebraska.

    Hurricane Proofing your property: As the hurricane approaches, check your
    yard for movable objects like barbecue grills, planters, patio furniture, visiting relatives, etc... You should, as a precaution, throw these items into your swimming pool (if you don't have a swimming pool, you should have one built immediately). Otherwise, the hurricane winds will turn these objects into deadly missiles.


    If you live in a low-lying area, you should have an evacuation route planned out. (To determine whether you live in a low-lying area, look at your driver's license; if it says "Florida," you live in a low-lying area). The purpose of having an evacuation route is to avoid being trapped in your homewhen a major storm hits. Instead, you will be trapped in a gigantic traffic jam several miles from your home, along with two hundred thousand other evacuees. So, as a bonus, you will not be lonely.


    If you don't evacuate, you will need a mess of supplies. Do not buy them now! Florida tradition requires that you wait until the last possible minute, then go to the supermarket and get into vicious fights with strangers over who gets the last can of SPAM. In addition to food and water, you will need the following supplies:

    * 23 flashlights. At least $167 worth of batteries that turn out, when the power goes off, to be the wrong size for the flashlights.

    * Bleach. (No, I don't know what the bleach is for. NOBODY knows what the bleach is for, but it's traditional, so GET some!)

    * A 55-gallon drum of underarm deodorant.

    * A big knife that you can strap to your leg. (This will be useless in a hurricane, but it looks cool.)

    * A large quantity of raw chicken, to placate the alligators. (Ask anybody who went through Andrew; after the hurricane, there WILL be irate alligators.)

    * $35,000 in cash or diamonds so that, after the hurricane passes, you can buy a generator from a man with no discernible teeth.

    Of course these are just basic precautions. As the hurricane draws near, it is vitally important that you keep abreast of the situation by turning on your television and watching TV reporters in rain slickers stand right next to the ocean and tell you over and over how vitally important it is for everybody to stay away from the ocean.

    Good luck, and remember: Its great living in Paradise.

    A Mainer, Nebraskan, Floridian and New Yorker are road tripping. Suddenly the Mainer starts throwing spuds form the car. The Nebraskan asks him what he's doing. "Well, we have so many of these, I'm sick of 'em!" Satisfied and inspired, the Nebraskan then starts throwing corn husks out the window. The Floridian asks him what he's doing. "Well, Nebraska is full of corn and I'm sick of it, so out it goes!"

    Hillary Clinton died and went to heaven. As she stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, she saw a HUGE wall of clocks behind him.

    She asked, "What are the reasons for all those clocks?"

    St. Peter answered, "Those are Lie-Clocks. Every person on earth has a Lie-Clock. Everytime you lie, the hands on your clock will move."

    "Oh," said Hillary, "whose clock is that?"

    "That's Mother Teresa's. The hands have never moved, indicating that she has never told a lie in all her long life."

    "And whose clock is that?" asked Hillary.

    "That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have only moved twice, telling us that Honest Abe only told 2 lies in his entire life."

    "Where's Bill's clock?" Hillary asked.

    "Bill's clock is in Jesus' office. He's using it as a ceiling fan."

    Little Johnny watched the science teacher start the experiment with the worms. Four worms were placed into four separate jars.

    The first worm was put into a jar of alcohol. The second worm was put into a jar of cigarette smoke. The third worm was put into a jar of sperm. The fourth worm was put into a jar of soil. After one day, these were the results: The first worm in alcohol - dead. Second worm in cigarette smoke - dead. Third worm in sperm - dead. Fourth worm in soil - alive.

    The Science teacher then asked the class, "What can you learn from this experiment?"

    Little Johnny quickly raised his hand and said, "As long as you drink, smoke and have sex, you won't have worms!"

    God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him,
    resting on the seventh day. He inquired of God.
    "Where have you been?"
    God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction, and proudly pointed downwards
    through the clouds,
    "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."
    Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said,
    "What is it?" "It's a planet," replied God,
    "and I've put Life on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a
    great place of balance."
    "Balance?" inquired Michael, still confused.
    God explained, pointing to different parts of earth.
    "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and
    wealth, while Southern Europe is going to be poor. Over there I've placed a
    continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people.
    Balance in all things,"
    God continued pointing to different countries.
    "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and
    covered in ice."
    The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and
    "What's that one?"
    "Ah," said God
    "That's Washington State, the most glorious place on earth. There are
    beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes, forests, hills, plains, and
    coulees. The people from Washington State are going to be handsome, modest,
    intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to be found traveling the
    world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, and
    they will be known throughout the world as diplomats, and carriers of
    Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then proclaimed,
    "What about balance, God? You said there would be balance."
    God smiled,
    "There is another Washington...wait until you see the idiots I put there."

    Dave returned from a doctor's visit one day and told his wife Doreen*that the doctor said he only had 24 hours to live. Wiping away her tears, he asked her to make love with him. Of course she agreed and they*made passionate love. Six hours later, Dave went to her again, and said,
    "Honey, now I only have 18 hours left to live. Maybe we could make love again?" Doreen agreed and again they made love.*
    Later, Dave was getting into bed when he realised he now had only eight hours of life left. He touched Doreen's shoulder and said, "Honey?
    Please? Just one more time before I die." She agreed, then afterward she rolled over and fell asleep.
    Dave, however, heard the clock ticking in his head, and he tossed*and turned until he was down to only four more hours. He tapped his wife on
    the shoulder to wake her up. "Honey, I only have four hours left! Could we...?" His wife sat up abruptly, turned to him and said,
    ." Listen Dave, I have to get up in the morning! You don't."

    A study conducted by UCLA's Department of Psychiatry has revealed that the kind of male face that a woman finds attractive can differ depending on where she is in her menstrual cycle.

    For instance, if she is ovulating she is attracted to men with rugged and masculine features.

    However, if she is menstruating, or menopausal, she is more prone to be attracted to a man with scissors lodged in his temple and a bat jammed up his ass while he is on fire.

    Further studies are expected.

    Oh I shouldn't but will anyway.

    A lawyer married a woman who had previously divorced ten husbands. On their wedding night, she told her new husband, "Please be gentle, I'm still a virgin." "What?" said the puzzled groom. "How can that be if you've been married ten times?" "Well, Husband #1 was a sales representative; he kept telling me how great it was going to be.

    Husband #2 was in software services; he was never really sure how it was supposed to function, but he said he'd look into it and get back to me.

    Husband #3 was from field services; he said everything checked out diagnostically but he just couldn't get the system up.

    Husband #4 was in telemarketing; even though he knew he had the order, he didn't know when he would be able to deliver.

    Husband #5 was an engineer; he understood the basic process but wanted three years to research, implement, and design a new state-of-the-art method.

    Husband #6 was from finance and administration; he thought he knew how, but he wasn't sure whether it was his job or not.

    Husband #7 was in marketing; although he had a nice product, he was never sure how to position it.

    Husband #8 was a psychologist; all he ever did was talk about it.

    Husband #9 was a gynecologist; all he did was look at it.

    Husband #10 was a stamp collector; all he ever did was... God! I miss him! But now that I've married you, I'm really excited!"

    "Good," said the new husband, "but, why?" "You're a lawyer. This time I know I'm gonna get screwed!"

    There was this guy who was sick, so he went to the doctor. The doctor ran some tests and sent him home with a prescription.

    The next day the doctor called and the wife answered. "I'm going to need to run a few more tests", the doctor said. "I'm going to need a semen, urine and a fecal sample".

    After she hung up the husband asked, "What did the doctor say?"

    "Your doctor says he needs a pair of your underwear".

    Raising Caine...er, I mean, Boys

    My sister, who nicknamed my two sons "The Wrecking Crew" when they were little, sent me this today:


    a) For those with no children - this is totally hysterical!

    b) For those who already have children past this age, this is hilarious.

    c) For those who have children this age, this is not funny.

    d) For those who have children nearing this age, this is a warning.

    e) For those who have not yet had children, this is birth control.

    The following came from an anonymous Mother in Austin, Texas...!
    Things I've learned from my Boys (honest and not kidding):

    1.) A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq. ft. house 4 inches deep.

    2.) If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over them with roller blades, they can ignite.

    3.) A 3-year old Boy's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.

    4.) If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42
    pound Boy wearing Batman underwear and a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however,
    if tied to a paint can, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20x20 ft. room.

    5.) You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on. When using a ceiling fan
    as a bat, you have to throw the ball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can
    hit a baseball a long way.

    6.) The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn't stop a baseball hit by a ceiling fan.

    7.) When you hear the toilet flush and the words "uh oh", it's already too late.

    8.) Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.

    9.) A six-year old Boy can start a fire with a flint rock even though a 36-year old Man says
    they can only do it in the movies.

    10.) Certain Lego's will pass through the digestive tract of a 4-year old Boy.

    11.) Play dough and microwave should not be used in the same sentence.

    12.) Super glue is forever.

    13.) No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool you still can't walk on water.

    14.) Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

    15.) VCR's do not eject "PB & J" sandwiches even though TV commercials show they do.

    16.) Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.

    17.) Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.

    18.) You probably DO NOT want to know what that odor is.

    19.) Always look in the oven before you turn it on; plastic toys do not like ovens.

    20.) The fire department in Austin, TX has a 5-minute response time.

    21.) The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.

    22.) It will, however, make cats dizzy.

    23.) Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.

    24.) 80% of Men who read this will try mixing the Clorox and brake fluid.

    25.) Women will pass this on to almost all of their friends, with or without kids

    says the network is connected to the button on your mouse,

    but your packets want to tunnel to another protocol,

    that's repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall

    And your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss,

    so your icons in the window are as wavy as a souse;

    then you may as well reboot and go out with a bang,

    'cuz sure as I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang.

    When the copy on your floppy's getting sloppy in the disk,

    and the macro code instructions is causing unnecessary risk,

    then you'll have to flash the memory and you'll want to RAM your ROM,

    and then quickly turn off the computer and be sure to tell your Mom!

    The Parrot

    The Parrot

    A young man named John received a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a badattitude and an even worse vocabulary. Every word out of the bird's mouth was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity.

    John tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else he could think of to "clean up" the bird's vocabulary.

    Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot. The parrot yelled back.

    John shook the parrot and the parrot got angrier and even ruder.

    John, in desperation, threw up his hands, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer. For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed. Then suddenly there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard for over a minute.

    Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly opened the door to the freezer.

    The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arms and said "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I'm sincerely remorseful for my inappropriate transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior."

    John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude. As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird continued, "May I ask what the turkey did?"

    Melissa comes home from first grade and tells her father that they learned about the history of Valentine's Day in class today.

    Since Valentine's Day is for a Christian saint and we're Jewish," she asks,"Will God get mad at me for giving someone a valentine?

    Melissa's father thinks a bit, then says "No, I don't think God would get mad. Who do you want to give a valentine to?"

    "Osama Bin Laden," she says

    "Why Osama Bin Laden?" her father asks in shock

    "Well," she says, "I thought that if a little American Jewish girl could have enough love to give Osama a valentine, he might start to think that we're not all bad, and maybe start loving people a little bit. And if other kids saw what I did and sent valentines to Osama, he'd love everyone a lot. And then he'd start going all over the place to tell everyone how much he loved them and how he didn't hate anyone

    Her father's heart swells and he looks at his daughter with new-found pride.

    "Melissa, that's the most wonderful thing I've ever heard."

    "I know," Melissa says, "and once that gets him out in the open, the Marines could blow his ass away."

    Getting a tooth pulled

    Went to the dentist yesterday.

    He said he's going to have to pull the tooth and came at me with a needle of novacain.

    I said Oh No I can't do needles.

    So he came at me with laughing gas.

    I said Oh No I can't do laughing gas.

    So he handed me a viagra.

    I asked how the hell is this going to cure the pain. he said it wont cure the pain but it will give me something to hang on to while he pulls the tooth.

    Smart Cat

    A man absolutely hated his wife's cat and decided to get rid of him one day by driving him 20 blocks from his home and leaving him at the park. As he was getting home, the cat was walking up the driveway. The next day he decided to drive the cat 40 blocks away. He put the beast out and headed home.

    Driving back up his driveway, there was the cat! He kept taking the cat further and further and the cat would always beat him home. At last he decided to drive a few miles away, turn right, then left, past the bridge, then right again and another right until he reached what he thought was a safe distance from his home and left the cat there.

    Hours later the man calls home to his wife: "Jen, is the cat there?"

    "Yes", the wife answers, "why do you ask?"

    Frustrated, the man answered, "Put that son of a GUN on the phone, I'm lost and need directions!"

    Last week, we took some friends out to a new restaurant, and noticed that
    the waiter who took our order carried a spoon in his shirt pocket. It seemed
    a little strange.

    When the busboy brought our water and utensils, I noticed he also had a
    spoon in his shirt pocket. Then I looked around and saw that all the staff
    had spoons in their pockets.

    When the waiter came back to serve our soup I asked, "Why the spoon?"

    "Well," he explained, "the restaurant's owners hired Andersen Consulting to
    revamp all our processes. After several months of analysis, they concluded
    that the spoon was the most frequently dropped utensil. It represents a drop
    frequency of approximately 3 spoons per table per hour. If our personnel are
    better prepared, we can reduce the number of trips back to the kitchen and
    save 15 man-hours per shift."

    As luck would have it, I dropped my spoon and he was able to replace it with
    his spare. "I'll get another spoon next time I go to the kitchen instead of
    making an extra trip to get it right now."

    I was impressed. I also noticed that there was a string hanging out of the
    waiter's fly. Looking around, I noticed that all the waiters had the same
    string hanging from their flies. So before he walked off, I asked the
    waiter, "Excuse me, but can you tell me why you have that string right

    "Oh, certainly!" Then he lowered his voice. "Not everyone is so observant.
    That consulting firm I mentioned also found out that we can save time in the
    restroom. By tying this string to the tip of you know what, we can pull it
    out without touching it and eliminate the need to wash our hands, shortening
    the time spent in the restroom by 76.39 percent."

    "After you get it out, how do you put it back?"

    "Well," he whispered, "I don't know about the others, but I use the spoon."
