SOME OF THESE JOKES ARE X-RATED.
THE OLD LADY IN HEAVEN

An old lady dies and goes to heaven.

She's chatting it up with St. Peter at the Pearly Gates
when all of a sudden she hears the most awful, blood curdling screams.

Don't worry about that,' says St. Peter,
'It's only someone having the holes drilled into her
shoulder blades for the wings.'

The old lady looks a little uncomfortable
but carries on with the conversation.
A few minutes later, there are more blood curdling screams.

'Oh my Goodness,' says the old lady,
'now what is happening?'

'Not to worry,' says St. Peter,
'She's just having her head drilled to fit the halo.'

'I can't do this,' says the old lady, 'I'm going to hell.'

'You can't go to that nasty place,' says St. Peter.
'You'll be raped and taken advantage of.'

'Maybe so,' says the old lady,
but I've already got the holes for that.'

THE RABBI'S PRESENT

Celebrating a Rabbi's 25 years of trusted service, the congregation sends him to Hawaii to the best suite, all expenses paid. When the Rabbi enters his suite, a beautiful, nude woman is lying in bed.

"Hello Rabbi, She says, "I'm here to do anything you want and I mean anything, 'cause they're paying big time."

Outraged, the Rabbi calls up the President of his congregation and screams, "Shlomo, how dare you tempt with such a beautiful woman? What do you think I'm a pervert or something? I am a Rabbi, a Rabbi, a spiriual and religious man! I am outraged and mad at you! How dare you!"

With that, the beautiful woman starts to get dressed.

"Where are you going?", asks the Rabbi. "Stay right where you are. I'm mad at him, not at you!

HOW TO MAKE HIM HAPPY

The night before her wedding, the bride-to-be talked with her mother. "Mom," she said, "I want you to teach me how to make my new husband happy."

The mother took a deep breath and began, "When two people love, honor, and respect each other, love can be a very beautiful thing..."

"I know how to fuck, mother," the bride-to-be interrupted.
"I want you to teach me your lasagna recipe."

THE CHRISTMAS PARTY MEMO

December 1st
TO: ALL EMPLOYEES
I'm happy to inform you that the company Christmas Party will take place on December 23rd at the Radisson Hotel and Suites. There will be lots of spiked eggnog and a small band playing traditional carols... feel free to sing along. And don't be surprised if our CEO shows up dressed as Santa Claus to light the Christmas tree! Exchange of gifts among employees can be done at that time; however, no gift should be over $10.
Merry Christmas to you and your family.
Patty Lewis
Human Resources Director

December 2nd
TO: ALL EMPLOYEES
In no way was yesterday's memo intended to exclude our Jewish employees. We recognize that, Hanukkah is holiday that often coincides with Christmas (though unfortunately not this year). However, from now on we're calling it our "Holiday Party." The same policy applies to employees who are celebrating Kwanzaa at this time. There will be no Christmas tree and no Christmas carols sung. Happy Holidays to you and your family.
Patty Lewis
Human Resources Director

December 3rd
TO: ALL EMPLOYEES
Regarding the anonymous note I received from a member of Alcoholics Anonymous requesting a non-drinking table, I'm happy to accommodate this request, but, don't forget, if I put a sign on the table that reads, "AA Only," you won't be anonymous anymore.
In addition, forget about the gifts exchange-no gifts will be allowed since the union members feel that $10 is too much money.
Patty Lewis
Human Researchers Director

December 7th
TO: ALL EMPLOYEES
I've arranged for members of Overeaters Anonymous to sit farthest from the dessert buffet and pregnant women closest to the restrooms. Gays are allowed to sit with each other. Lesbians do not have to sit with the gay men; each will have their table. Yes, there will be a flower arrangement for the gay men's table. Happy now?
Patty Lewis
Human Racehorses Director

December 9th
TO: ALL EMPLOYEES
People, people - nothing sinister was intended by wanting our CEO to play Santa Claus! Even if the anagram of "Santa" does happen to be "Satan," there is no evil connotation to our own "little man in a red suit."
Patty Lewis Human Resources Director

December 10th
TO: ALL EMPLOYEES
Vegetarians - I've had it with you people! We're going to hold this party at the Radisson Hotel whether you like it or not, you can just sit at the table farthest from the grill of death," as you put it, and you'll get salad bar only, including hydroponic tomatoes. But, you know, tomatoes have feelings, too. They scream when you slice them. I've heard them scream. I'm hearing them right now. Ha! I hope you all have a rotten holiday! Drive drunk and die! DO YOU HEAR ME?
Patty Lewis

December 14th
TO: ALL EMPLOYEES
I'm sure I speak for all of us in wishing Patty Lewis a speedy recovery from her stress-related illness. I'll continue to forward your cards to her at the sanitarium. In the meantime, management has decided to cancel our Holiday Party and give everyone the afternoon of the 23rd off with full pay. Happy Holidays!

A MESSAGE FROM THE CAPTAIN

"This is Captain Sinclair speaking. On behalf of my crew I'd like to welcome you aboard United Airlines flight 602 from New York to Punta Cana. You are currently flying at a height of 35,000 feet going South over the Atlantic.

"If you look out of the windows on the starboard side of the aircraft, you will observe that both the starboard engines are on fire.

"If you look out of the windows on the port side, you will observe that the port wing has fallen off.

"If you look down towards the Atlantic ocean, you will see a little yellow life raft with three people in it waving at you.

"That's me, your captain, the co-pilot and one of the stewardesses. This is a recorded message."

Jesus and the Burglar

One night, without a moon in the sky and a heavy fog, a burglar drove up to a house. He rang the doorbell and when no one answered, broke the lock on the kitchen door and went in.
It was pitch black inside as he made his way through the kitchen, then the dining room and into the den where he expected to find the things he wanted to steal.
"Jesus Christ is watching you," a voice said.
The burgler was startled but seeing no one, shrugged the voice off.
A few minutes later, the voice said, "Jesus Christ sees everything you are doing."
The burglar froze in his tracks but only momentarily. Still seeing nothing, he continued with his theft.
"Jesus Christ is very close to you," the voice said a few minutes later.
Finally the burglar took out his flashlight and shone it in the direction of the voice. He saw was a parrot on its perch.
The burglar laughed. "What kind of stupid family has a dumb bird like you?" he asked.
"The same kind of stupid family that names its doberman Jesus Christ!" the parrot said.

THANK GOD FOR SMALL FAVORS

I've sure gotten old. I've had 2 By-pass surgeries. A hip replacement, new knees. Fought prostate cancer, and diabetes. I'm half blind, can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine, take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, I'm winded, and subject to blackouts.

I have bouts with dementia. Have poor circulation, hardly feel my hands and feet anymore. Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92. Have lost all my friends.

But... Thank God, I still have my Florida driver's license.

CHRISTMAS JOKES

Yesterday I met a Jewish man who loved Christmas,
He loved it so much he even dressed up as Santa Claus,
Stood outside his store, and said,
"HO HO HO, All toys 20% off"

One more thing,
I have been watching all about the new Rockefeller Center Tree,
Its was all decked out with the New' LED' diode lights
They say its the first Christmas Tree thats" GOING GREEN"
It uses less electricity that last years tree,
Thats going green..? Alright.
Except for the fact "THEY CHOPPED DOWN A TREE!!!!"
That gets me mad.....
This tree at 90 feet cleaned more pollution in 90 years than a 1966 cadillac filled with sandbags driven entirely up hill in 1st gear for 100 years with flat tires.
My point is If you want to go green, Buy a artificial tree,
NBC cant make a 90 foot fake tree? Out of Old Detergent Bottles?
What about this...?
Atleast cut a tree with a root system , so It can be RE-planted again.... after 1 month
of being lit up like a Dutch Whore in the red light district of Holland.
This tree serves no importance anymore to anyone except the wood chipper.

I think Ill invent a gas free car that runs on Bald Eagle Eggs, These people would buy it , just like they' BUY' The Rockefeller Christmas Tree is GOING GREEN.

Remember I am The First New Yorker , who hates the Tree at Rock center.I would love it , If it Didnt have to be killed,
Just Plant One TREE in that Spot and use it year after year....yada yada yada
"A tradition for over 70 TREES oops I mean YEARS"...
I wanna stand at the base of the tree with a sign that reads......
Rockefeller Center cut down more trees than Paul Bunion ,Merry Christmas.

GETTING A GET

A New York judge is presiding over the divorce proceedings of a Jewish couple. When the final papers have been signed and the divorce is complete the woman thanks the judge and says "Now I have to arrange for a GET."

The judge inquires what she means by a GET. So, the woman explains that a GET is a religious ceremony required under the Jewish religion in order to receive a divorce.

The judge says, "You mean a religious ceremony like a BRIS?

She replies "Yes, very similar, only in this case you get rid of the entire SCHMUCK."

A JEWISH APE

Dov, a Jewish actor, is so down and out he's ready to take any acting gig that he can find. Finally he gets a lead, a classified ad that says: "Actor needed to play ape."

"I could do that," thinks Dov. To his surprise, the employer turns outo be the local zoo. Owing to mismanagement, the zoo has spent so much money renovating the grounds and improving the habitat, that they can no longer afford to import the ape they need to replace their recently deceased one. So until they can, they'll put an actor in an ape suit.

Out of desperation, Dov accepts the offer. At first, his conscience keeps nagging him, that he is being dishonest by fooling the zoo-goers. And he feels undignified in the ape-suit, stared at by crowds who watch his every move. But after a few days on the job, he begins to be amused by all the attention, and starts to put on a show for the zoo-goers: hanging upside-down from the branches by his legs, swinging about on the vines, climbing up the cage walls, and roaring with all his might whilst beating his chest. Soon, he's drawing a sizable crowd.

One day, when Dov is swinging on the vines to show off to a group of school kids, his hand slips and he goes flying over the fence into the neighboring cage, the lion's den! Terrified, Dov backs up as far from the approaching lion as he can, covers his eyes with his paws, and prays at the top of his lungs, "Shma Yisrael Adonai Eloheinu Adonai Echod!"

The lion opens its powerful jaws and roars, "Baruch Shem K'vod Malchuto L'olam Va'ed!"

From a nearby cage the panda yells, "Shut up, you schmucks. You'll get us all fired!!!

TECHNO-TERRORIST

At New York's Kennedy airport today, an individual later discovered to be a public school teacher was arrested trying to board a flight while in possession of a ruler, a protractor, a setsquare, a slide rule, and a calculator.

At a morning press conference, Attorney general John Ashcroft said he believes the man is a member of the notorious al-gebra movement. He is being charged by the FBI with carrying weapons of math instruction.

"Al-gebra is a fearsome cult,", Ashcroft said. "They desire average solutions by means and extremes, and sometimes go off on tangents in a search of absolute value. They use secret code names like "x" and "y" and refer to themselves as "unknowns", but we have determined they belong to a common denominator of the axis of medieval with coordinates in every country

"As the Greek philanderer Isosceles used to say, there are 3 sides to every triangle," Ashcroft declared.

When asked to comment on the arrest, President Bush said, "If God had wanted us to have better weapons of math instruction, He would have given us more fingers and toes "I am gratified that our government has given us a sine that it is intent on protracting us from these math-dogs who are willing to disintegrate us with calculus disregard. Murky statisticians love to inflict plane on every sphere of influence," the President said, adding: "Under the circumferences, we must differentiate their root, make our point, and draw the line," President Bush warned, "These weapons of math instruction have the potential to decimal everything in their math on a scalene never before seen unless we become exponents of a Higher Power and begin to factor-in random facts of vertex

Attorney General Ashcroft said, "As our Great Leader would say, read my ellipse. Here is one principle he is uncertainty of though they continue to multiply, their days are numbered as the hypotenuse tightens around their necks."

GENTILE JOKES

All we ever hear are "Jewish" jokes; don't you think Gentiles should get equal time?

A Gentile goes into a clothing store and says: "This is a very fine jacket. How much is it?" The salesman says: "It's $500." The Gentile says, "OK, I'll take it."

Two Gentiles meet on the street. The first one says, "You own your own business, don't you? How's it going?" The other Gentile says, "Just great! Thanks for asking!"

Two Gentile mothers meet on the street and start talking about children. Gentile mother #1 says (with pride): "My son is a construction worker!" Gentile mother #2 says (with more pride): "My son is a truck driver!"

A man calls his mother and says, "Mother, I know you're expecting me for dinner this evening, but something important has come up and I can't make it." His mother says, "OK."

A Gentile couple goes to a nice restaurant: The man says: "I'll have the steak and a baked potato, and my wife will have the Julienne salad with house dressing. We'll both have coffee." The waiter says: "How would you like your steak and salad prepared?" The man says "I'd like the steak medium, the salad is fine as is." The waiter says: "Thank you."

A Gentile man calls his elderly mother. He asks, " Mom, how are you feeling? Do you need anything?" She says, "I feel fine, and I don't need anything. Thanks for calling."

A Gentile woman meets an old Gentile friend. The friend asks, "How is your son getting along?" The Gentile woman says: "He's just fine. He just turned 35." "And where does he live?" asks the friend. "He lives at home with me. I don't think he'll ever get married." The friend says, "How nice."

THE BAD PARROT

A man bought himself a parrot as a gift. The parrot had a very bad vocabulary. Every word out of tie bird's mouth was profanity. The man tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words in an effort to clean up the bird's vocabulary.

Finally the man got fed up and he yelled at the parrot The parrot yelled back the man shook the parrot, making the parrot even angrier and even ruder. In desperation, the man threw up he hands, grabbed the bird, and it into the freezer.

Then suddenly there was total quiet. Not a peep was heard from the parrot for over a minute. Fearing that he had hurt the parrot, the man quickly opened the door to the freezer. The parrot flew out into the man's arms and said, "OK! I know I ofrended you with my bad language. I promise to correct my rude behavior.

The man was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude. He just stared at the bird and said nothing.

Suddenly the bird said, "Just tell me one thing. What did the turkey do?"

POISON

Man goes to see his Rabbi.

"Rabbi, something terrible is happening and I have to talk to you about it."

The Rabbi asked, "What's wrong?"

The man replied, "My wife is poisoning me."

The Rabbi, very surprised by this, asks, "How can that be?"

The man then pleads, "I'm telling you, I'm certain she's poisoning me, what should I do?"

The Rabbi then offers, "Tell you what. Let me talk to her, I'll see what I can find out and I'll let you know."

A week later the Rabbi calls the man and says, "Well, I spoke to your wife. I spoke to her on the phone for three hours. You want my advice?"

The man anxiously says, "Yes."

"Take the poison," says the Rabbi.

WAITERS

A timeless lesson on how consultants can make a difference for an organization...

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 waiter brought our water and utensils, I noticed he also had a spoon in his shirt pocket. Then I looked around 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 there?"

"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."

A NEW CAR

Police Officer O'Leary is cruising around in his patrol car one night. He's on the lookout for trouble. He sees two little old ladies in the front seat of a Chevrolet convertible, parked in a used car lot.

The car lot is closed so O'Leary drives up alongside the Chevy and asks, "Are you two ladies trying to steal this car?"

"Certainly not," says one of the ladies, "we purchased the car this afternoon."

"Well," says the cop, "why don't you start it up and drive out of here?"

"Oh, we don't drive," replies the other little old lady. "And besides we are waiting."

"What on Earth are you waiting for?" asked the cop.

The old lady sitting in the drivers seat replies," We were told that if we ever bought a car from here we would get screwed."

EGAN'S LAW

POLICE MUST NOTIFY RESIDENTS WHEN CATHOLIC CHURCH MOVES INTO NEIGHBORHOOD Controversial "Egan's Law" Expected to Gain Widespread Support

Trenton, N.J. (SatireWire.com) - Under a new law designed to protect minors, local police departments will now be required to inform residents any time a known Roman Catholic church moves into their neighborhood.

New Jersey Senate passes Egan's Law:

The law also mandates that Catholic churches register with authorities, wear electronic monitoring devices, and be prohibited from moving to within a half-mile radius of a school.

A follow-up to Megan's Law, enacted by New Jersey in 1994, the so-called "Egan's Law" is named for Cardinal Edward Egan of New York and Cardinal Bernard Law of Boston, who are both accused of covering up sexual abuse by priests under their authority. Like Megan's Law, Egan's Law is expected to spread quickly to other states, but for parents in towns across New Jersey, it's on the books none too soon.

"Last year, we discovered that a Catholic Church had been in our neighborhood for 30 years! And nobody told us!" said Ruth Harper of Redbrook, N.J. "My sons used to walk by that church every day on their way to school. Even now I shudder to think of what might have happened."

"I always told my kids to steer clear of that place," added neighbor Scott Carlyle. "But that's because there were a lot of strange people going in and out at odd hours, even at midnight on Saturdays. I was worried it was some kind of druggie hangout.

"To think the whole time it was a Roman Catholic Church. Now I know why they had all those stained glass windows -. so nobody could look in."

Critics, however, charge that Egan's Law is unconstitutional, specifically because it relies on religious profiling and is intended to safeguard only one segment of the population: young males. But State Sen. Carmela Truto, a Catholic who co-sponsored the bill, used church doctrine itself to prove only one segment needs protection.

"In the Catholic Church, after 2,000 years, Mary is still a Virgin," she said. "So clearly, they're not interested in girls."

That statement, however, angered Vatican spokesman Edgar Palowski, who said it propagated a common misconception about the church. "This doesn't get reported enough," he said, "but it's a fact that our priests abuse just as many girls as boys."

"Oh. Oh dear..." he added.

JEWISH ZEN
Sent by Jennie Kramer on July 7, 2003

Take only what is given.
Own nothing but your robes and an alms bowl.
Unless, of course, you have the closet space.

Let your mind be as a floating cloud.
Let your stillness be as the wooded glen.
And sit up straight.
You'll never meet the Budhha with posture like that.

There is no escaping karma.
In a previous life, you never called,
you never wrote, you never visited.
And whose fault was that?

Wherever you go, there you are.
Your luggage is another story.

Do not let children play contact sports like football.
These only lead to injuries and instill a violent, war-like nature.
Encourage your child to play peaceful games, like "sports doctor."

To practice Zen and the art of Jewish motorcycle maintenance,
do the following: get rid of the motorcycle. What were you thinking?

Learn of the pine from the pine.
Learn of the bamboo from the bamboo.
Learn of the kugel from the kugel.

Be aware of your body.
Be aware of your perceptions.
Keep in mind that not every physical sensation
is a symptom of a terminal illness.

If there is no self, whose arthritis is this?

Those who know do not kibbitz.
Those who kibbitz do not know.

*Breathe in. Breathe out. Breathe in. Breathe out.
Forget this and attaining Enlightenment will be the least of your
problems.

Do not kvetch. Be a kvetch. Become one with your whining.

The Tao has no expectations.
The Tao demands nothing of others.
The Tao  does not speak.
The Tao does not blame.
The Tao does not take sides.
The Tao is not Jewish.

Whenever you feel anger, you should say,
May I be free of this anger!"
This rarely works, but talking to yourself in public
will encourage others to leave you alone.

Drink tea and nourish life. With the first sip, joy.
With the second, satisfaction. With the third, Danish.

The Buddha taught that one should practice
lovingkindness to all sentient beings.
Still, would it kill you to find a nice sentient being
who happens to be Jewish?

Enter into your inner self and behold the eye of the soul.
Gaze upon your original face before you were even born.
Shocked? Remember, this was before the nose job.

Be patient and achieve all things.
Be impatient and achieve all things faster.

In nature, there is no good or bad, better or worse.
The wind may blow or not.
The flowering branch grows long or short.
Do not judge or prefer.
Ask only, "Is it good for the Jews?"

To Find the Buddha, look within.
Deep inside you are ten thousand flowers.
Each flower blossoms ten thousand times.
Each blossom has ten thousand petals.
You might want to see a specialist.

Be here now.
Be someplace else later.
Is that so complicated?

Zen is not easy.
It takes effort to attain nothingness.
And then what do you have?


Sent by Claudia Deutsch in December, 2007

If there is no self, whose arthritis is this?

Accept misfortune as a blessing.
Do not wish for perfect health or a life without problems.
What would you talk about?

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single "oy."

Zen is not easy.
It takes effort to attain nothingness.
And then what do you have?
Bupkes.

The Torah says, "Love thy neighbor as thyself."
The Buddha says there is no "self."
So, maybe you are off the hook.

Though only your skin, sinews, and bones remain,
though your blood and flesh dry up and wither away,
Yet shall you meditate and not stir
until you have attained full Enlightenment.
But, first, a little nosh.

ASSORTED JOKES

In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the
animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is
punishable by death.

(Like THAT makes sense.)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman's genitals, but is
prohibited from looking directly at them during the examination. He may
only see their reflection in a mirror.
(Do they look different reversed?)

*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a corpse. This also
applies to undertakers; the sex organs of the deceased must be covered
with a brick or piece of wood at all times.
(A brick??)

*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation.
(Much worse than "going blind!")

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the countryside
and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the privilege of having sex
for the first time...
Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to marry.
(Let's just think for a minute; is there any job anywhere else in the
world that even comes close to this?)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous
husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. The husband's lover, on
the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired.
(Ah! Justice!)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool, England - but only in
tropical fish stores.
(But of course!)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her husband, and the
first time this happens, her mother must be in the room to witness the
act.
(Makes one shudder at the thought.)

*~*~*~*~**~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~**~*~*

In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman
and her daughter at the same time.
(I presume this was a big enough problem that they had to pass this
law?)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

In Maryland, it is illegal to sell condoms from vending machines with
one exception: prophylactics may be dispensed from a vending machine
only "in places where alcoholic beverages are sold for consumption on
the premises."
(Is this a great country or what? Not as great as Guam!)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
A pig's orgasm lasts for 30 minutes.
(In my next life I want to be a pig)

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~**~*~*~~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

Banging your head against a wall uses
150 calories an hour.

ALTERNATIVE ANSWERING MACHINE GREETINGS:

Hello! If you leave a message, I'll call you soon. If you leave a "sexy" message, I'll call sooner!

Hello, you are talking to a machine. I am capable of receiving messages. My owners do not need siding, windows or a hot tub, and their carpets are clean. They give to charity through their office and do not need their picture taken. If you're still with me, leave your name and number and they will get back to you.

Hi! John's answering machine is broken. This is his refrigerator. Please speak very slowly, and I'll stick your message to myself with one of these magnets.

Hi. I'm probably home, I'm just avoiding someone I don't like. Leave me a message, and if I don't call back, it's you.

Hi. Now you say something.

Hi. This is John If you are the phone company, I already sent the money. If you are my parents, please send money. If you are my financial aid institution, you didn't lend me enough money. If you are my friends, you owe me money. If you are a female, don't worry, I have plenty of money.

If you are a burglar, then we're probably at home cleaning our weapons right now and can't come to the phone. Otherwise, we probably aren't home and it's safe to leave a message.

Leave a beep after the message

This is not an answering machine - this is a telepathic thought-recording device. After the tone, think about your name, your number and your reason for calling, and I'll think about returning your call.

PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS

A young Scottish lad and lassie were sitting on a low stonewall, holding hands, and just gazing out over the loch.

For several minutes they sat silently, then finally the girl looked at the boy and said, "A penny for your thoughts, Angus."

"Well, uh, I was thinkin' perhaps it's aboot time for a wee kiss."

The girl blushed, then leaned over and kissed him. Then he blushed. Then the two turned once again to gaze out over the loch.

After a while the girl spoke again. "Another penny for your thoughts, Angus."

"Well, uh, I was thinkin' perhaps its aboot time for a wee cuddle."

The girl blushed, then leaned over and cuddled him. Then he blushed. Then the two turned once again to gaze out over the loch.

After a while the girl spoke again. "Another penny for your thoughts, Angus."

"Well, uh, I was thinkin' perhaps its aboot time you let me poot me hand on your leg."  

The girl blushed, then took his hand and put it on her leg. Then he blushed. Then the two turned once again to gaze out over the loch.

After a while the girl spoke again. "Another penny for your thoughts, Angus."

The young man knit his brow. "Well, now," he said, "my thoughts are a bit more serious this time."

"Really?" said the girl in a whisper, filled with anticipation.

"Aye," said the lad.

The girl looked away in shyness, began to blush and bit her lip in anticipation of the ultimate request.

Angus blurted out, "Din'na ye think it's aboot time ye paid me the first three pennies?"

WOMEN! WHAT CAN YOU DO?

A woman and a man are involved in a car accident on a snowy, cold Monday morning; it's a bad one. Both of their cars are totally demolished but amazingly neither of them are hurt. God works in Mysterious ways.

After they crawl out of their cars, the woman says, "So you're a man. That's interesting. I'm a woman. Wow, just look at our cars! There's nothing left, but we're unhurt. This must be a sign from God that we should meet and be friends and live together in peace for the rest of our days".

Flattered, the man replies, "Oh yes, I agree with you completely, this must be a sign from God!"

The woman continues, "And look at this, her e's another miracle. My &t;car is completely demolished but this bottle of wine didn't break. Surely God wants us to drink this wine and celebrate our good fortune." Then she hands the bottle to the man.

The man nods his head in agreement, opens it and drinks half the bottle and then hands it back to the woman. The woman takes the bottle and immediately puts the cap back on, and hands it back to the man. The man asks, "Aren't you having any?"

The woman replies, "No. I think I'll just wait for the police...."

THE BUS GOES WHERE?

A Polish couple trying to live up to a snobbish lifestyle went to a party. The conversation turned to Mozart. "Absolutely brilliant, magnificent, a genius!"

The woman, wanting to join in the conversation, remarked casually, "Ah, Mozart. You're so right. I love him. Only this morning I saw him getting on the No. 5 bus going to Coney Island."

There was a sudden hush, and everyone looked at her. Her husband was mortified. He pulled her away and whispered, "We're leaving right now. Get your coat and let's get out of here."

As they drove home, he kept muttering to himself. Finally his wife turned to him. "You're angry about something."

"Oh really? You noticed?" he sneered. "I've never been so embarrassed in my life! You saw Mozart take the No. 5 bus to Coney Island? You idiot! Everyone knows the No. 5 bus doesn't go out to Coney Island!"

WHITE COLLAR CRIME

The stockbroker was nervous about being in prison because his cellmate looked like a real thug.

"Don't worry," the gruff looking fellow said, "I'm in here for a white-collar crime too."

"Well, that's a relief." sighed the stockbroker. "I was sent to prison for fraud and insider trading."

"Oh, nothing fancy like that for me." qualified the convict. "I just killed a couple of Priests."

ALWAYS THE DOUBT

Charles, the Frenchman, was leaving his Parisian home for two weeks and confided in his friend, Pierre, "I always hate leaving my wife for so long like this. When I'm away, I just don't know what she is doing. There's always the doubt, always the doubt."

Pierre said, "Charles, I'll tell you what. Because we're such close friends, I'll keep an eye on her every evening that you're gone."

"You would do that for me, Pierre?" Charles said, relieved. "Oh thank you so very much. I know I really should trust my wife, but it's just that there's always the doubt, always the doubt."

So Charles went off on his business trip and returned to Paris two weeks later. The two men met again.

"Charles, I'm afraid I have bad news for you," Pierre said. "The very first night you were gone, I watched this man go to your house. Your wife opened the door naked and kissed and hugged him. He fondled her breasts. He rubbed her crotch. Then they closed the door to go upstairs. Never daunted, I climbed up the tree outside your house and watched them in the bedroom."

"And so...?" inquired Charles.

"Well, first they took off all his clothes."

"What happened then?" asked Charles.

"Then," Pierre shook his head sorrowfully, "then they closed the curtains. I could see nothing. I could learn nothing more."

Charles sighed a deep sigh. "So you see how it is, my friend? Always the doubt, always the doubt."

THE SHY WELSH MAN

A shy Welsh village man, Elwyn, noticed that a beautiful girl had moved in next door. But Elwyn was shy so every time he saw her in the garden or in the street he couldn't think of what to say, so he would say 'good morning miss' or 'good afternoon miss' and hurry off about his business.   

He talked to his friend in the bar. "Jones," he said, "a beautiful girl lives next door to me, but I don't know how to chat girls up, I've never done it before."   

Jones said, "All you have to do is say to her 'good morning miss. It´s a beautiful day isn't it? What beautiful flowers in your garden.´ That will get the conversation going."   

Elwyn practiced this in front of a mirror for a few days. Then one night at the local pub he saw her. Elwyn stood near the bar trying to pluck up the courage to go and talk to her. He was nearly ready when the girl got up and went to the ladies rest room.   

This is it, thought Elwyn, its now or never. So he stood outside the ladies rest room and waited. She was ever such a long time that poor Elwyn was starting to lose his nerve. He was just about to walk away when the girl came out. There she was, right in front of him looking beautiful.   

Elwyn said, "Erm, erm g-good evening, miss."   

She said, "Good evening."   

He continued, "It´s a b-beautiful day isn't it?"   

"Yes," she said, "it is a splendid day."   

Encouraged he went on. "I´m your neighbor, and I must tell you you have a lovely garden."   

She smiled, "Thank you. I think so, too."   

Stuck for something else to talk about, Elwyn stammered, "Erm, erm, err, ah, you've just had a shit, have you?"   

THE OBEDIENT WIFE

There was a man who had worked all his life, had saved all of his money, and was a real miser when it came to his money.

Just before he died, he said to his wife...'When I die, I want you to take all my money and put it in the casket with me. I want to take my money to the afterlife with me.'

And so he got his wife to promise him, with all of her heart, that when he died, she would put all of the money into the casket with him.

Well, he died He was stretched out in the casket, his wife was sitting there - dressed in black, and her friend was sitting next to her. When they finished the ceremony, and just before the undertakers got ready to close the casket, the wife said,

'Wait just a moment!'

She had a small metal box with her; she came over with the box and put it in the casket. Then the undertakers locked the casket down and they rolled it away. So her friend said,

'Girl, I know you were not foolish enough to put all that money in there with your husband.'

The loyal wife replied, 'Listen, I'm a Christian; I cannot go back on my word. I promised him that I was going to put that money into the casket with him'

You mean to tell me you put that money in the casket with him!?!?!?'

'I sure did,' said the wife. 'I got it all together, put it into my account, and wrote him a check.
 If he can cash it, then he can spend it.'

TASHLICH

On ROSH HASHANAH, the Jewish New Year, a time of introspection, there is the custom of TASHLICH, where Jews take crumbs and throw them into a river or other body of water to symbolize throwing away one's sins and starting the new year fresh.

However, times have changed.

Taking a few crumbs to TASHLICH from whatever old bread is in the house lacks subtlety, nuance and religious sensitivity. Instead, consider these options for TASHLICH in ROSH HASHANAHs to come.
