---Lawyer and the blonde. Read this one before you prejudge it. (mgw)

A lawyer and a blonde are sitting next to each other on a long flight from LA to NY. The lawyer leans over to her and asks if she would like to play a fun game. The blonde just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks.

The lawyer persists and explains that the game is really easy and a lot of fun. He explains "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me $5, and visa-versa." Again, she politely declines and tries to get some sleep.

The lawyer, now somewhat agitated, says, "Okay, if you don't know the answer you pay me $5, and if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $50!", figuring that since she is a blonde that he will easily win the match.

This catches the blonde's attention and, figuring that there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, agrees to the game. The lawyer asks the first question.

"What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches into her purse, pulls out a five-dollar bill and hands it to the lawyer.

Now, it's the blonde's turn. She asks the lawyer: "What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?" The lawyer looks at her with a puzzled look. He takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references. He taps into the Airphone with his modem and searches the Net and the Library of Congress. Frustrated, he sends E-mails to all his co-workers and friends he knows.

All to no avail. After over an hour, he wakes the blonde and hands her $50. The blonde politely takes the $50 and turns away to get back to sleep. The lawyer, who is more than a little miffed, wakes the blonde and asks, "Well, so what IS the answer!?"

Without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5, and goes back to sleep.

 

If you can start the day without caffeine or pep pills;

---Three guys are out having a relaxing day fishing.
Out of the blue, they catch a mermaid who begs to be set free in return for granting each of them a wish. Now one of the guys just doesn't believe it, and says: "OK, if you can really grant wishes, then double my IQ."

The mermaid says: "Done." Suddenly, the guy starts reciting Shakespeare flawlessly and analyzing it with extreme insight.

The second guy is so amazed, he says to the mermaid: "Triple my IQ." The mermaid says: "Done." The guy starts to spout out all the mathematical solutions to problems that have been stumping the scientists in various fields: physics, chemistry, etc.

The last guy is so enthralled with the changes in his friends that he says to the mermaid: "Quintuple my IQ." The mermaid looks at him and says: "You know, I normally don't try to change people's minds when they make a wish, but I really wish you'd reconsider."

The guy says: "No, I want you to increase my IQ times five, and if you don't do it, I won't set you free."

"Please," says the mermaid. "You don't know what you're asking. It will change your entire view on the universe. Won't you ask for something else like a million dollars? Anything!!"

But no matter what the mermaid said, the guy insisted on having his IQ increased by five times its usual power. So the mermaid sighed and said: "Done."

And he became a woman."

12 thoughts for today- December 24, 2004

12. Life is sexually transmitted.

11. Health is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die.

10. Men have two emotions: Hungry and Horny.  If you see him without an erection, make him a sandwich.

 9. Give a person a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a person to use the Internet and they won't bother you for weeks.

  8. Some people are like Slinkies .... not really good for anything, but you can't help smiling when you see one tumble down the stairs.

  7. Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing.

  6. Whenever I start feeling blue, I start breathing again.

  5. All of us could take a lesson from the weather. It pays no
attention to criticism.

  4. Why does a slight tax increase cost you two hundred dollars and a substantial tax cut saves you thirty cents.

  3. In the 60's people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

  2. Politics is supposed to be the second oldest profession. I have  come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.

  And the #1 THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:

Most "terrorists" are reported to have come to the US legally, but they then hang around on expired visas, some for as long as 10 to 15 years. Now compare that to Blockbuster. If you are 2 days late with a video, those people are all over you like a fat boy on a cupcake. I think we should put Blockbuster in charge of immigration.

---Subject: The Rabbit      

A man was driving along the highway, and saw a rabbit hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved to avoid hitting the rabbit, but unfortunately the rabbit jumped in front of the car and was hit.

The driver, being a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulled over to the side of the road, and got out to see what had become of the rabbit. Much to his dismay, the rabbit was dead.

The driver felt so awful, he began to cry. A woman driving down the highway saw the man crying on the side of the road and pulled over.

She stepped out of her car and asked the man what was wrong.

"I feel terrible," he explained, "I accidentally hit this rabbit and   killed it."

The woman told the man not to worry. She knew what to do. She went  to her car trunk, and pulled out a spray can. She walked over to the limp, dead rabbit, and sprayed the contents of the can onto the rabbit.

Miraculously the rabbit came to life, jumped up, waved its paw at  the two humans and hopped down the road. 50 yards away the rabbit stopped, turned around, waved and hopped down the road, another 50 yards, turned, waved and hopped another 50 yards.

The man was astonished. He couldn't figure out what substance could be in the woman's spray can!!

He ran over to the woman and asked, "What is in your spray can? What  did you spray on that rabbit?

The woman turned the can around so that the man could read the label. It said: "Hair spray.  Restores life to dead hair. Adds permanent wave.

A funny thing happened to me while I was visiting the park in old London town last year. I had to use the park facility, which was one of those new high-tech automatic outdoor restrooms.

After I finished and was ready to leave, the automatic door opened and there stood another tourist like myself. (His attire obviously showed he was from China.)

I motioned for him to come in and save his admission coin; he'd come in and I'd go out simultaneously. He caught on right away; as I walked out, he walked in and the door closed automatically.

Then I heard this loud rushing of water inside. I then realized this toilet facility had an automatic self-cleaning feature that sounded all-encompassing inside. I quickly realized what was happening - the poor guy was getting all wet - so I walked pretty fast and jumped on a bus.

I often wonder if he still hates me. Maybe there's a new Confucius saying:

"Man who gets in free to use facility gets surprise of his life."

---Kiss that Frog
A man was crossing a road one day when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess." He bends over, picked up the frog, and put it in his pocket.

The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will tell everyone how smart and brave you are and how you are my hero." The man took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it, and returned it to his pocket. The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will be your loving companion for an entire week."

The man took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it, and returned it to his pocket. The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you for a year and do ANYTHING you want." Again the man took the frog out, smiled at it, and put it back into his pocket. Finally the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess, that I'll stay with you for a year and do anything you want.

Why won't you kiss me?"

The man said, "Look, I'm a computer programmer. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog is cool."

---A Long Happy Life?

A woman walked up to a little old man rocking in a chair on his porch. "I couldn't help noticing how happy you look," she said. "What's your secret for a long happy life?"

"I smoke three packs of cigarettes a day," he said. "I also drink a case of whiskey a week, eat fatty foods, and never exercise."

"That's amazing," the woman said. "How old are you?"

"Twenty-six," he said.

2nd Person: "How did you load the sheet?"

1st Person: "It's a pretty sensitive memo, and I didn't want anyone else to read it by accident, so I folded it so only the recipient would open it and read it."

---I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car.

"I need a battery in this remote door unlocker. Now I can't get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a distant convenience store) would have a battery for this?"

"Hmmm, I dunno. Do you have an alarm, too?" I asked.

"No, just this remote 'thingy,' she answered, handing it and the car keys to me. As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied, "Why don't you drive over there and check about the batteries...it's a long walk."

Working Out for Weight Loss
This is dedicated to every woman who ever  attempted to get into a regular workout routine. A must read!                 

Dear Diary...

For my fiftieth birthday this year, my husband (the  dear) purchased a week of  personal training at the local health club for me.  Although I am still in great shape since playing on  my high school softball team, I decided it would be a good idea to go ahead and give it a try. I called the club and  made my reservations with a personal trainer I'll  call Bruce, who identified himself as a  26-year-old aerobics instructor and  model for athletic clothing and swimwear. 
My  husband seemed pleased  with my enthusiasm to get started. The club encouraged me to keep a diary to chart my  progress.  

Monday: Started my day  at 6:00am. Tough to get out of bed, but found it  was well worth it when I arrived at the health club  to find Bruce waiting for me. He is something of a Greek God - with blond hair, dancing  eyes and a dazzling white smile. Woo  Hoo!! Bruce gave me a tour and showed me the machines. He took my pulse after five minutes on the treadmill. He was  alarmed that my pulse was so fast, but I  attribute it to standing next to him in his Lycra  aerobic outfit. I enjoyed  watching the skillful way in which he conducted his aerobics class after my workout today. Very inspiring. Bruce was encouraging as I did my sit-ups, although my gut was already aching from holding it in the whole  time he was around. This is going to be a FANTASTIC week!!

Tuesday: I drank a whole pot of coffee, but I finally made it out the door. Bruce made me  lie on my back and push a heavy iron bar into the  air, then he put weights on it! My legs were a  little wobbly on the treadmill, but I made the full mile. Bruce's rewarding smile made it all worthwhile. I feel  GREAT!! It's a whole new life for  me.

Wednesday: The only way I can brush my teeth is by laying the toothbrush on the counter and moving my mouth back and forth over it. I believe I have a hernia in both pectorals. Driving was OK as long as I didn't try to steer or stop. I parked on top of a GEO in the club parking lot. Bruce was impatient with me, insisting that my screams bothered other club members. His voice is a  little too perky for early in the morning  and when he scolds, he gets this nasally whine that  is VERY annoying. My chest hurt when I got on the treadmill, so Bruce put me on the stair monster. Why the hell would anyone invent a machine to simulate an activity rendered obsolete by elevators? Bruce told me it would help me get in shape and  enjoy life. He said some other stuff too. 

Thursday:  Bruce was waiting for me with his vampire-like teeth exposed  as his thin, cruel lips were pulled back in a full snarl. I  couldn't help being a half an hour late, because it took me that long to tie my shoes. Bruce put me to work out with dumbbells. When he was not looking, Iran and hid in the ladies room.  He sent Lars to find me, then, as punishment, put  me on the rowing machine, which I sank.  

Friday: I hate Bruce more than any human being  has ever hated any other human being in the history of the world. Stupid, skinny, anemic little cheerleader wannabe. If there was a part of my body I could  move without unbearable pain, I would beat him up. Bruce wanted me to work on my triceps. I don't have any  triceps! And if you don't want dents in the floor,  don't hand me the <&*@*#$ &*@*#$  barbells or anything that weighs more than  a sandwich. (Which I am sure you learned in the sadist school you attended and graduated magna cum laude from, you Nazi dog.) The treadmill flung me off and I landed on a health and nutrition teacher. Why couldn't it have been someone softer, like the drama coach or the choir director?

Saturday: Bruce left a message on my answering machine in his grating, shrilly voice wondering why I  did not show up today. Just hearing him made me want to smash the machine with my planner. However, I lacked the strength to even use the TV remote and ended up catching eleven straight hours of the *$@#&&&&&&&& Weather Channel. 

Sunday: I'm having the Church van pick me up  for services today so I can go and thank GOD that this week is over. I will also pray that next year my husband (the dog) will choose a gift for me that is fun -- like a root canal or a hysterectomy.

--- My friend called his car insurance company to tell them to change his address from Texas to Vermont. The woman who took the call asked where Vermont was. As he tried to explain, she interrupted and said,

"Look, I'm not stupid or anything, but what state is it in?"

---I was working the help desk. One day one of the computer operators called me and asked if anything "bad" would happen if she dropped coins into the openings of her PC. I asked her if this was something she was thinking of doing. She said, "never mind" and hung up. So I got out my trusty tool kit and paid her a visit. I opened her CPU case and sure enough - there was 40 cents.

---One of our servers crashed. I was watching our new system administrator trying to restore it. He inserted a CD and needed to type a pathname to a directory named "i386." He started to type it and paused, asking me, "Where's the key for that line thing?"

I asked what he was talking about, and he said, "You know, that one that looks like an upside-down exclamation mark."

I replied, "You mean the letter "i"?" and he said, "Yeah, that's it!"


___________________________________________________

---I was in a car dealership a while ago when a large motor home was towed into the garage. The front of the vehicle was in dire need of repair and the whole thing generally looked like an extra in "Twister."

I asked the manager what had happened. He told me that the driver had set the cruise control, then went in back to make a sandwich.

---Joke of the Week -

A man named Juan comes up to the Mexican border on his bicycle with two large bags over his shoulders. The guard stops him and asks, "What's in the bags?"

"Sand," answers Juan to which the guard replies, "We'll just see about that..." The guard takes the bags, rips them apart, empties them out and finds nothing but sand. He detains Juan overnight and has the sand analyzed, but discovers that it really is nothing but pure sand.

Finally, the guard releases Juan, puts the sand into new bags, hefts them onto the man's shoulders and lets him cross the border.

A week later, the same thing happens -- Juan approaches the border on his bicycle with two bags of sand. The guard asks him, "What have you got?" and Juan replies, "Sand." Again the guard does a thorough examination and discovers that the bags contain nothing but sand. He gives the sand back to Juan, who crosses the border. This sequence is repeated every day for several months until finally the guard is sitting in a Cantina in Mexico and Juan walks in.

"Hey, Buddy," says the guard to Juan, "I know you're smuggling something... It's been driving me crazy. It's all I think about! I can't sleep. Just between you and me, what are you smuggling?"

Juan sips his beer and says, "Bicycles."

---Let There Be Peace -

A wise old gentleman retired and purchased a modest home near a junior high school. He spent the first few weeks of his retirement in peace and contentment.

Then a new school year began. The very next afternoon three young boys, full of youthful, after-school enthusiasm, came down his street, beating merrily on every trash can they encountered. The crashing percussion continued day after day, until finally the wise old man decided it was time to take some action.

The next afternoon, he walked out to meet the young percussionists as they banged their way down the street. Stopping them, he said, "You kids are a lot of fun. I like to see you express your exuberance like  that. Used to do the same thing when I was your age. Will you do me a favor? I'll give you each a dollar if you'll promise to come around every day and do your thing."

The kids were elated and continued to do a bang-up job on the trashcans. After a few days, the old-timer greeted the kids again, but this time he had a sad smile on his face.

"This recession's really putting a big dent in my income," he told them. "From now on, I'll only be able to pay you 50 cents to beat on the cans."

The noisemakers were obviously displeased, but they did accept his offer and continued their afternoon ruckus.

A few days later, the wily retiree approached them again as they drummed their way down the street. "Look," he said, "I haven't   received my Social Security check yet, so I'm not going to be able to give you more than 25 cents. Will that be okay?"

"A lousy quarter?" the drum leader exclaimed. "If you think we're going to waste our time, beating these cans around for a quarter, you're nuts! No way, mister. We quit!"

And the old man enjoyed peace and serenity for the rest of his days.

---The Perfect Story

There was a perfect man who met a perfect woman. After a perfect courtship, they had a perfect wedding. Their life together was, of course, perfect.

One snowy, stormy Christmas Eve this perfect couple was driving a perfect car along a winding road when they noticed someone at the roadside in distress. Being the perfect couple, they stopped to  help.

There stood Santa Claus with a huge bundle of toys. Not wanting to disappoint any children on the eve of Christmas, the perfect couple loaded Santa and his toys into their vehicle. Soon they were driving along delivering the toys.

Unfortunately, the driving conditions deteriorated and the perfect    couple and Santa Claus had an accident. Only one of them survived the accident.

Who was the survivor? (scroll down for the answer)

The perfect woman.

She's the only one that really existed in the first place.   Everyone knows there is no Santa Claus and there is no such thing as a perfect man.

===================================

* A Male's Response * (Scroll Down )

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So, if there is no perfect man and no Santa Claus, the perfect  woman must have been driving. This explains why there was a car accident.

---JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT IT WAS SAFE TO GO BACK IN THE WATER: When two fishermen from Puglia, Italy, found a hand grenade, they didn't turn it over to authorities, they took it fishing. And  when they saw some bubbles coming from the deep, they tossed the grenade in the water "hoping to stun fish". The bubbles weren't  coming from fish, but from Teodoro Zuccaro's scuba tank. The blast killed the 43-year-old diver. The two fishermen have been charged with manslaughter, detonating an explosive, and poaching....Poaching?: apparently divers weren't in season yet.

Alas no, his valiant effort is in vain. The bell hath sounded. Thou must leave a message.

---Hi, I'm not home right now but my answering machine is, so you can talk to it instead. Wait for the beep." "Hello. I am David's answering machine.

What are you?"

---He-lo! This is Sa-to. If you leave message, I call you soon. If you leave *sexy* message, I call sooner!

---"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."

---"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."

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

---"Hi. I am 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."

---"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 us a message."

---"You're growing tired. Your eyelids are getting heavy. You feel very sleepy now. You are gradually losing your willpower and your ability to resist suggestions. When you hear the tone you will feel helplessly compelled to leave your name, number, and a message."

Morris was removing some engine valves from a car on the lift when he spotted the famous heart surgeon Dr. Michael DeBakey, who was standing off to the side, waiting for the service manager. Morris, somewhat of a loud mouth, shouted across the garage, " Hey DeBakey...Is that you ? Come over here a minute." 
The famous surgeon, a bit surprised, walked over to where Morris was working on a car. Morris in a loud voice, all could hear, said argumentatively, " So Mr. fancy doctor, look at this work. I also take valves out, grind 'em, put in new parts, and when I finish this baby will purr like a kitten. So how come you get the big bucks, when you and me are doing basically the same work ? " DeBakey, very embarrassed, walked away, and said softly, to the man. "while the engine's still running?

Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends will leave footprints in your heart.

To handle yourself, use your head;  To handle others, use your heart.

Anger is only one letter short of danger.

If someone betrays you once, it's his fault;

if he betrays you twice, it's your fault.

Great minds discuss ideas; Average minds discuss events; Small minds discuss people.

God gives every bird its food, But He does not throw it into its nest.

He who loses money, loses much; He who loses a friend, loses more; He who loses faith, loses all.

Beautiful young people are acts of nature, But beautiful old people are works of art.

Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.

The tongue weighs practically nothing, But so few people can hold it.

The Meaning of Life

by Cukey Sapodillo taken from http://www.livingnutrition.com/laugh.html 

The American businessman was at an outdoor fresh food market at a coastal Costa Rican farm village when a small truck with filled with boxes of fruit pulled up. The American complimented the driver on the quality of his fruit and asked how long it took to pick it all. The Costa Rican farmer replied, only a little while. The American then asked why didn't he pick more fruit? The Mexican said he had enough to support his family's immediate needs. The American then asked, but what do you do with the rest of your time? The Costa Rican farmer said, "I sleep late, tend to the orchard, pick fruit, have lunch, play with my children, take siesta with my wife, Maria, stroll into the village each evening and play guitar with my amigos, I have a full and busy life, senor."

The American scoffed, "I am a Harvard MBA and could help you. You should pick more fruit, plant more trees, spend more time farming and with the proceeds, buy a bigger orchard, and with the proceeds from the bigger orchard you could buy several orchards. Eventually you would have a fleet of trucks. Instead of selling your harvest at fruit stalls in small villages you would sell directly to city markets, and eventually open your own fruit exporting business. You would control the product and distribution."

"You would need to hire orchard and distribution managers, leave this small coastal village and move to San Jose, then Mexico City, then Los Angles, then New York City where you will run your expanding enterprise."

The Costa Rican farmer asked, "But senor, how long will this all take?"

To which the American replied, "15-20 years."

"But what then, senor?"

The American laughed and said: "That's the best part. When the time is right you would announce an IPO and sell your company stock to the public and become very rich, you would make millions."

"Millions, senor? Then what?"

The American said, "Then you would retire. Move to a small coastal farming village where you would sleep late, tend to your orchard, pick fruit, have lunch, play with your grandchildren, take siestas with your wife, stroll into the village each evening and play guitar with your amigos.
