ROTFLMAO!
Great joke Queen B

3. Three jokes courtesy of my 13 year old son;

Q. What do you call a dear with no eyes?
A. No idea.

Q. What do you call a dear with no eyes and no legs?
A. Still no idea.

A man walks into a bar carrying a suitcase, sits down, orders a beer and opens the case. A wee man, only about a foot tall, hops out and stands on the bar. The wee man sees a piano in the corner of the bar, jumps down, runs over to it and strikes up a tune. Soon the whole place is singing along enjoying the wee man's playing. The first man (who carried the suit case in) doesn't have to buy a drink all night and the barman even gives him a free dinner - the wee man's playing is so good.

When it comes to chucking out time, a couple of the drinkers give the first man a pat on the back and say what a good time they've had. One asks "where did you get the wee feller?"

The first man explains that he is an antique collector and once came across a genie in a bottle who granted him one wish. Then he looks his interrogorator directly in the eye and says darkly, "if you ever get the chance, be very careful what you wish for". Puzzled by the warning the second man says "you've done alright, you haven't paid for more than a single drink all night, you got a free dinner and everyone has had great fun".

The first man looks back and says "You don't honestly think I wished for a 12 inch pianist do you"?

Q: How many mice does it take to screw in a light bulb?

A: Just two, but don't ask me how they get in there.

5. ## I'll probably be banned for this one...

Once upon a time in the kingdom of Heaven, 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 created."

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 but cold and harsh while southern Europe is going to be poor but sunny and pleasant . "I have made some lands abundant in water and other lands parched deserts. "This one will be extremely hot and while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land mass and said, "What's that one?"

"Ah," said God. "That's Canada the most glorious place on earth. There will be beautiful prairies, grasslands, farms, streams, abundant wild game and birds, rolling hills and woodlands. The people from Canada 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 and high achieving, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and carriers of peace."

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed, "What about balance, God? You said there would be balance!!!"

God replied wisely, "Wait until you see the idiots I put in United States."

6. Does anyone have any good knock knock jokes. I have a friend visiting from Germany and he had never heard a knock knock joke before. The only one I could remember is the banana/orange you glad I didn't say banana one.

Because of the current power failures in Canada and the Northeast U.S.,
the Consumer Product Safety Commission issued a series of warnings and good advise on how to cope with the blackout: e.g.: Shut off your
appliances, Run generators outside, Check your smoke detector batteries, etc.

And then they sent the message out on the internet.

8. A happily married couple in their 50's lived in Pauanui by the beach. The wife was doing some study through university and said to her husband,
"I need to study snails that eat the acacia tree."
The husband trying to be helpful said,
"I know where one is, its just down the beach a little way. They come out at night, I'll fetch you some."
That evening her husband went with a bucket to fetch the snails for his adoring wife.
Just as he was about to finish, a beautiful blonde was walking up the beach toward him. They started talking and as luck would have it, they got on extremely well.
The blonde said, "Would you like to come to my place and have a drink?'
The man accepted. One thing lead to another and the next thing he knew he was in bed with the blonde, making mad passionate love.
"Oh God", he thought what have I done. "I must get home."
But as circumstances were, he soon fell off to sleep.
Suddenly he woke up at 7.00 a.m. Panicking, he got dressed, grabbed his bucket of snails and starting running home.
He nearly got to the back door, when he fell over and all the snails fell out of the bucket. He got up and started brushing himself off.
Next thing, his wife come out of the back door, yelling "Where the hell have you been?!"
The husband bends down, waves to the snails and says,
"Come on boys, we're nearly there."

The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians, passed on from generation to
generation, says that when you discover that you are riding a dead horse,
the best strategy is to dismount.

In modern corporate America and government, however, a whole range of far
more advanced strategies are often employed, such as:

2. Changing riders.

3. Threatening the horse with termination.

4. Appointing a committee to study the horse.

5. Arranging to visit other countries to see how others ride dead
horses.

6. Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be included.

7. Re-classifying the dead horse as "living impaired."

8. Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse.

9. Harnessing several dead horses together to increase the speed.

horse's performance.

11. Doing a productivity study to see if lighter riders would improve the

12. Declaring that as the dead horse does not have to be fed, it is less
costly, carries lower overhead, and therefore contributes substantially
more
to the bottom line of the economy than do some other horses.

13. Re-writing the expected performance requirements for all horses.

14. Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position.

HOW DO YOU DECIDE WHO TO MARRY?

You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff.
Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and
she should keep the chips and dip coming.
Alan, age 10

they're going to marry.
God decides it all way before, and you get to find
out later who you're stuck with.

WHAT IS THE RIGHT AGE TO GET MARRIED?

Twenty-three is the best age because you know the
person FOREVER by then.
Camille, age 10

HOW CAN A STRANGER TELL IF TWO PEOPLE ARE MARRIED?

to be yelling at the same kids.
Derrick, age

Both don't want any more kids.
Lori, age

WHAT DO MOST PEOPLE DO ON A DATE?

Dates are for having fun, and people should use them
to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen
long enough.
Lynnette, age

************

On the first date, they just tell each other lies,
and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.
Martin, age 10

*************

WHAT WOULD YOU DO ON A FIRST DATE THAT WAS TURNING
SOUR?

I'd run home and play dead. The next day I would call
all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead
columns.
Craig, age

WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?

When they're rich.
Pam, age 7

you should marry them and have kids with them. It's the right thing to do.
Howard, age 8

IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?

It's better for girls to be single but not for boys.
Boys need someone to clean up after them.

21. ## Why Men Shouldn't Babysit

Sorry guys - I still can't work out how to embed images. These are funny though.

Moderator note:

22. This is an old favorite in our office:

An American engineer and architect decide to take a side trip to the remotest part of Brazil after meeting with their clients.

(Sorry, American architects and engineers.)

Ignoring the advice of their guide, they strike out down a path alone into the rainforest. Sure enough, they become hopelessly lost. After a night of misery huddled under the canopy of trees they set out again. After walking a few hours in the heat and humidity, they stumble onto a village of native peoples. Their relief is short-lived however, when they realize the natives are not at all friendly.

After the tribal leader interrogates the two Americans, he finds them guilty of trespassing on tribal lands. The architect is given his choice of sentences: death or bobaloobah. The architect does not want to die, so he chooses bobaloobah. The men of the tribe go into a wild frenzy while the women scream ear-piercing sounds. The architect is buggered to within 3/32" of his life. The leader claps his hands and the buggering stops. The architect lies bleeding and broken on the jungle floor.

The leader then turns to the engineer and offers the same choice of sentences: death or bobaloobah? Having witnessed the horror that had just befallen his friend, the engineer swallows hard and says "Death!"

Okay, says the leader: Death, by bobaloobah!

23. ## Children's own stories

The following excerpts are actual answers given on history tests and in Sunday school quizzes by children between fifth and 6th grade ages in Ohio. They were collected over a period of three years by two teachers.

Ancient Egypt was old. It was inhabited by gypsies and mummies who
all wrote in hydraulics. They lived in the Sarah Dessert. The climate of
the Sarah is such that all the inhabitants have to live elsewhere.

-----------------------------------------------

Moses led the Hebrew slaves to the Red Sea where they made
Mount Cyanide to get the ten commandos. He died before he ever

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Solomon had three hundred wives and seven hundred porcupines. He was
an actual hysterical figure as well as being in the bible. It sounds
like he was sort of busy too.

The Greeks were a highly sculptured people, and without them we
wouldn't have history. The Greeks also had myths. A myth is a young female
moth.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Socrates was a famous old Greek teacher who went around giving
people advice. They killed him. He later died from an overdose of wedlock
which is apparently poisonous. After his death, his career suffered a
dramatic decline.

In the first Olympic games, Greeks ran races, jumped, hurled
biscuits,and threw the java. The games were messier then than they
show on tv now.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Julius Caesar extinguished himself on the battlefields of Gaul. The
Ides of March murdered him because they thought he was going to be made
king.

Dying, he gasped out: "Same to you, Brutus."

------------------------------------------------------------------------

Joan of Arc was burnt to a steak and was canonized by Bernard Shaw
for reasons I don't really understand. The English and French still have
problems.

success. When she exposed herself before her troops they all shouted
"hurrah!" and that was the end of the fighting for a long while.

invented removable type and the Bible. Another important invention was the
circulation of blood.

Sir Walter Raleigh is a historical figure because he invented
cigarettes and started smoking.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Sir Francis Drake circumcised the world with a 100 foot clipper
which was very dangerous to all his men.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

The greatest writer of the Renaissance was William Shakespeare. He
was born in the year 1564, supposedly on his birthday. He never made
much money and is famous only because of his plays. He wrote tragedies,
comedies,and hysterectomies, all in Islamic pentameter.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Romeo and Juliet are an example of a heroic couple. They lived in
Italy.

Romeo's last wish was to be laid by Juliet but her father was having
none of that that I'm sure. You know how Italian fathers are.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Writing at the same time as Shakespeare was Miguel Cervantes. He
wrote Donkey Hote. The next great author was John Milton. Milton wrote
Paradise Lost. Since then no one ever found it.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Delegates from the original 13 states formed the Contented Congress.
Thomas Jefferson, a Virgin, and Benjamin Franklin were two singers
of the Declaration of Independence. Franklin discovered electricity by
rubbing two cats backward and also declared, "A horse divided
against itself cannot stand." He was a naturalist for sure. Franklin died in

Abraham Lincoln became America's greatest Precedent. Lincoln's
mother died in infancy,and he was born in a log cabin which he built with
his own hands. Abraham Lincoln freed the slaves by signing the
Emasculation Proclamation.

------------------------------------------------------------------------

On the night of April 14, 1865, Lincoln went to the theater and got
shot in his seat by one of the actors in a moving picture show. They
believe the assinator was John Wilkes Booth, a supposingly insane actor.
This ruined Booth's career.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Johann Bach wrote a great many musical compositions and had a large
number of children. In between he practiced on an old spinster which
he kept up in his attic. Bach died from 1750 to the present. Bach was
the most famous composer in the world and so was Handel. Handel was half
German, half Italian, and half English. He was very large.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Beethoven wrote music even though he was deaf. He was so deaf that
he wrote loud music and became the father of rock and roll. He took
long walks in the forest even when everyone was calling for him.
Beethoven expired in 1827 and later died for this.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

The nineteenth century was a time of a great many thoughts and
inventions. People stopped reproducing by hand and started
reproducing by machine. The invention of the steamboat caused a network of
rivers to spring up.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Cyrus McCormick invented the McCormick raper, which did the work of
a hundred men.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Louis Pasteur discovered a cure for rabbits but I don't know why.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Charles Darwin was a naturalist. He wrote the Organ of the Species.
It was very long people got upset about it and had trials to see if it
was really true. He sort of said God's days were not just
24 hours but without watches -who knew anyhow? I don't get it.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Madman Curie discovered radio. She was the first woman to do what
she did. Other women have become scientists since her but they didn't
