 Kuro5hin Joke Contest(tm) By InigoMontoya in CultureSun Aug 18, 2002 at 09:11:58 PM EST Tags: Humour (all tags) Garrison Keillor, on his NPR show Prairie Home Companion, holds an annual joke contest, where listeners submit their best jokes to the show and the funniest of those are read on the air. Why don't we do the same here?

The concept is simple: You post jokes as comments. We rate them, reply to them, just have a ball with this. What are the best jokes you've heard? This is an opportunity for us to have a little laugh (and to post a lot of "LOL" replies) and enjoy yourself.

 Poll
Why did the chicken cross the road?
 The road was there. (Existentialist.) 26% What does it matter? The road has no intrinsic value and therefore is totally meaningless. (Nihilist.) 24% Onion fish hippopotamus space shuttle. (Dadaist.) 29% It had already paid the "road-crossing" toll. (Capitalist.) 19%

 No fun... (4.09 / 22) (#3) by segonds on Sun Aug 18, 2002 at 10:25:20 AM EST

 Because we like people, please refrain from ethnic humour, racist jokes, homosexual jokes, extreme sexist jokes, et cetera here. That's just not nice, not to mention highly immature. Is there something else to joke about? Do you want politically correct jokes?

 A few jokes here are O.K. but Kuro5hin is not a comedy forum. I voted this down, since rec.humor.funny is a really good forum for comedy and Kuro5hin can't really compete. Furthermore, it will be hard to police jokes for plagiarism, which can open a can of worms with copyright violations.

 Comedians often have jokes retold (after all who doesn't like to repeat a funny joke). However, the guy who comes up with the funny joke often deserves to have a chance to make a living off it during stand up, etc. So, while I like a good laugh like the next guy, I still am uncomfortable when a comics material gets posted on the web, especially without attribution.

 shipwreck (4.16 / 67) (#20) by speek on Sun Aug 18, 2002 at 11:38:08 AM EST

 A big titanic-like ship hits an iceberg and goes down. In one of the lifeboats there are 15 children, a priest, a rabbi, and a lawyer. As the lifeboat is floating along, it too is struck by an iceberg and starts to take on water. The rabbi counts the lifejackets: 15. "Gentlemen," the rabbi says. "We've had our chance at life, we should let the children take the lifejackets so they can have their chance." "Fuck the kids," says the lawyer, grabbing a jacket for himself. *Pause* as the priest looks at his watch. "Do you think there's time?"

 Generally these jokes are best saved until recipients have had at least two or three drinks, and the general conversation is descending into the obligatory drivel and randomness that makes pub conversations so enjoyable. Drinks are also likely to ensure that anybody offended by the jokes won't remember it beyond the next argument about who's buying the next round. Q. How do you make a Squirrel go "Woof!"? A.

 Aussie Humour (4.00 / 35) (#25) by Talez on Sun Aug 18, 2002 at 12:00:22 PM EST

 Q: How do you know if a Kiwi's broken into your flat? A: Teethmarks on the leg of lamb and cum all over your sheepskin boots Q: How does a Kiwi find a sheep in long grass? A: PLEASURABLE! Q: Whats long, hard and fucks all Kiwis? A: High School A New Zealander, a sheep and a dog were survivors of a terrible shipwreck. They found themselves stranded on a desert island and after being there for a while they got into the habit of going to the beach every evening to watch the sun go down. One particular evening, the sky was red with beautiful cirrus clouds, the breeze was warm and gentle; a perfect night for romance. As they sat there, the sheep started looking better and better to the Kiwi. Soon, he leaned over to the sheep and put his arm around it. But the dog got jealous, growling fiercely until the Kiwi took his arm from around the sheep. After that, the three of them continued to enjoy the sunsets together, but there was no more cuddling. A few weeks passed by and lo, and behold, there was another shipwreck. The only survivor was a beautiful young woman, the most beautiful woman the Kiwi had ever seen. She was in a pretty bad way when they rescued her, and they slowly nursed her back to health. When the young maiden was well enough, they introduced her to their evening beach ritual. It was another beautiful evening: red cirrus clouds, a warm and gentle breeze; perfect for a night of romance. Pretty soon the New Zealander started to get 'those feelings' again. He fought them as long as he could, but he finally gave in and leaned over to the young woman, cautiously, and whispered in her ear... 'Would you mind taking the dog for a walk?'

 Kiwi Humour (4.33 / 9) (#193) by gusnz on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 02:53:49 AM EST

 Once upon a time in the kingdom of Heaven, God went missing for six days. Eventually, Michael the Archangel found him. He inquired of God, "Where were you?" God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look son, look what I've made." Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, "What is it?" God replied, "It's a planet and I've put LIFE on it. I've named it Earth and there is a balance between everything on it. For example, there is North America and South America. North America is going to be rich and South America is going to be poor, and the narrow bit joining them, that's going to be a hotspot, while the top and bottom will be frozen. Now, look over here. I've put a continent of white people in the north called Europe, and another one of black people in the south, which I will call Africa." The Archangel then said, "And what is that long land mass under the cloud there?" And God said, "Ah - that is New Zealand, the land of the long white cloud, and that's a very special place. That's going to be the most glorious spot on Earth; beautiful mountains, lakes, rivers, streams and exquisite coastline. These people here are going to be modest, intelligent and humorous and they're going to be found travelling the world. They'll be extremely sociable, hard working, and high achieving. And I'm going to give them this superhuman, undefeatable rugby team which will be blessed with the most talented and charismatic specimens on the planet, and will be admired and feared by all who come across them." Michael the Archangel gasped in wonder and admiration but then, seeming startled, proclaimed: "Hold on a second. What about the BALANCE - you said there was going to be a balance." God replied wisely, "Wait until you see the wankers I'm putting next to them." [ JavaScript / DHTML menu, popup tooltip, scrollbar scripts... ][ Parent ]

 Irish Whiskey (3.95 / 24) (#31) by m0rzo on Sun Aug 18, 2002 at 12:34:03 PM EST

 An Irish priest and a Rabbi have a head-on collision, both on their way to their places of worship. Dazed and confused, the priest regains his conciousness first and kicks out the windscreen and pulls himself from the upside-down car. The rabbi's car is smoldering and the situation doesn't look good so the priest runs and drags the rabbi from his car and props him up on the side of the road. 'Heebe Jebus', says the Priest, 'will ye sit still? I's got someting in me gluv-box that'll help ye out, so it will.' The priest forages in his turned-over car and emerges with a bottle of Irish Whiskey, still intact. 'Here ye go, sir, take a few swigs of dis, it'll make ye feel better, so it will.' With that, the Rabbi takes a good, healthy swig of the Whiskey and looks up to thank the priest who's busy chatting on his mobile phone. 'So, won't you please have a drink with me?' says the rabbi to the priest. 'Sure I will.' replied the priest, 'straight after the Police file an accident report!' My last sig was just plain offensive.

So, e^x steps in front of his constant companion and says to the integral, "Hey, I hear you've been harrassing my friend here. Try it again, and you'll have to deal with me." The integral looks at him and laughs. "I don't think you understand who am I, brave fool." "No, I don't think you understand," e^x replies. "I'm e^x". "No, it is you who are confused. I'm dx/dy." I ain't no mathematician, so I hope I didn't screw it up:-)

 Integral of z-squared dz from 1 to the square root of 3 times the cosine of three pi over 9 equals log of the cube root of 'e'. Not only does it rhyme, it's correct too.

 Yep.  You screwed it up.   It's a derivative not an integral. I think it's just d/dy too. Here's why: If C is constant dC/dx = 0  (dead) d(e^x)/dx = e^x (unchanged) But d(e^x)/dy = 0 (dead) The way you had it: If C is constant Int(C,dx) = Cx Int(e^x,dx) = e^x Int(e^x,dy) = (e^x)y The joke doesn't make sense this way.

 The joke should have specified a derivative, not an integral as the bad guy, and the final line should have been d/dy, not dx/dy. That's why the joke is particularly abominable - they assumed it was a normal derivate (dy/dx, I believe is the one we normally do to find the slope of a line), but it turned out to be d/dy, which I think is a hardly used derivative. It is simply the most geeky joke I know of. So I thought I'd share it. Too bad I fucked it up.

Imam says: I got lost in a desert, my camel died and I had no water.  I was passing out from heat, but prayed to Allah and he carried me to an oasis. Rabbi says: I was walking in Jerusalem and saw a wallet on the ground, but I couldn't lift it - as it was Sabbath.  So I prayed to Jahveh, and he made it a Friday for me for a minute!

Being the curious soul he is, he watches the Demons show people to their clocks, and overhears other people's inquiries about them, and the explanations from the Demons. Demon: "These are the masturbation clocks." Poor Bastard #1: "What does that mean, and where's my clock?" Demon: "Here's your clock, and it's at 12:09--you only masturbated 9 times in your life?" Poor Bastard #2: "What about me?" Demon: "Ah, it's at about 3:30--that's much more normal around here." Pb: "Where's my clock, I don't see it anywhere..."

Your mother's the government and your little baby sister is the future. You yourself are the common people. Now take everything together - that's politics." Dissatisfied and bewildered by the answer, the teen goes through the house contemplating. On his way, he sees that his baby sister's diapers needed changing. He wanted to tell his mother and went to the parent's bedroom, but found his mother sleeping. In the cellar, he then saw his father getting busy with the housekeeper.

Seeing his wife enjoying this special treatment, the husband can't believe what he is seeing and demands that the plumber tell him what he is up to.

So, he spends his time visiting the animals and seeing how they're doing. One day, he comes upon this pair of snakes and he asks, "So, how are you guys doing with the whole species repopulation thing?" One of the snakes replies, "Well, to tell the truth, we're not doing all that great." So Noah says, "Is there anything I can do to help?" And the snake answers, "You could probably do us a whole lot of good if you'd just chop down that tree over there." So Noah, perplexed, gets an axe and chops this tree down for the snakes, and goes on his merry way, wanting to allow the snakes their private time. Then, a few weeks later, Noah comes back and, sure enough, the female is pregnant. He gives them his congratulations and then he asks, "So why exactly did you need me to cut down that tree for you guys, if you don't mind my asking?"

 Yet Another Bill Gates Joke (3.61 / 26) (#103) by maozo on Sun Aug 18, 2002 at 08:12:48 PM EST

 Bill Gates walks into a seedy downtown hangout, pulls up a stool at the bar. Of course he looks a bit out of place, the other men in the bar are all huge, sweaty, muscular men, and ol' Bill is, well, a geek. So obviously the bartender is more than a little concerned. Bill orders a martini, and is just about to have a sip, when a loud ringing noise is heard. The bartender stares in amazement as Bill opens his hand, holds it to the side of his face, and has a short conversation with it. "What the hell was that", asks the barkeep. "Oh, thats my cellphone. I got tired of carrying it around so i had it implanted". The bartender is very impressed. Bill takes another sip of his drink, and gets up to go to the bathroom. He is followed in by a meaty, goatee-faced, 7'2" bald guy. 5 minutes go by, nobody comes out... the bartender is getting nervous. 10 minutes go by... the bartender is really worried now. So he gets a few guys together and they go into the bathroom to see what's happened to Bill. They find Bill Gates spreadeagled, with his pants down, leaning with his face against the wall, and with a whole roll of toilet paper shoved up his ass. "Are you OK, man?!?! What happened?? Who did this to ya???!?" asks the bartender. "No, it's ok, don't worry. I'm just waiting for a fax."

 Once upon a time the Trids lived in Switzerland. During the winter, they'd feed in the valley, and during the summer, as the forage was giving out, they'd cross a mountain pass to get to a high alpine valley. Everything was good for them until one fall - when they started to walk up the mountain pass to get to the lower lands, a horrible Troll met them and kicked them down the mountainside. Everytime they tried to cross the pass the Troll kicked them back down. The days were getting short and the nights cold and they didn't know what to do. In desperation they visited a rabbi that lived nearby and told him what was going on. "Isn't there something you can do?" "Well," the rabbi said, "I can talk to him and see what his problem is." The rabbi walked up to the mountain pass and started to speak to the Troll and the Troll picked him up and carried him back down the mountain and put him down gently. "I don't understand," said the rabbi, "why didn't you kick me down the mountain?" The troll looked at him. "Silly rabbi, kicks are for Trids." (I love "shaggy dog" stories ...)

 Please indicate the language encoding of the jokes (2.53 / 13) (#112) by DodgyGeezer on Sun Aug 18, 2002 at 09:27:42 PM EST

 People have a different sense of humour in different places.  And that's not even considering that the content of the jokes might be only significant to one culture or locality.  For example, a lot of British humour just doesn't translate or get understood in the US, and going in the other direction, it's often just viewed as just plain dumb (no offense intended). So, a joke that is hysterically funny to somebody talking/thinking en-gb might not be funny at all to an en-us.  What kind of jokes are we looking for here?  The ones that make people from the most cultures laugh, or ones that make people within one locality laugh the most?  If it's the former, I predict that the jokes will have to be pretty simple. Sorry... I'm probably taking all the fun out of :(

Would you help me so that I can make love to her without the King noticing?" "This is difficult," Merlin mused. "If either one of us were caught, the punishment would be death." Upon thinking some more, Merlin said that he would do it...for 1000 gold coins. Lancelot, horny beyond comprehension, agreed to Merlin's terms. One night, while Guinevere was bathing, Merlin snuck into her chambers and put itching powder in her undergarments. Guinevere was tossing and turning all night as the itching pervaded her. King Arthur thought this to be the symptom of some sort of illness and called Merlin in to investigate. "You are correct, Sire, that it is an illness. It is of a rare sort where the woman will itch until she is driven to suicidal insanity. It is not indicative of any sort of ill character, but it must be treated immediately." "What is the cure?" Merlin asked in great haste. "The cure, Sire, involves the use of dragon's saliva. This is unfortunate, as there are no dragons in these parts. However, I have done some research and Sir Lancelot's lineage appears to include a dragon. I believe that his attendance to the affected areas will cure her." "Very well," Arthur proclaimed. "Lancelot may tend to her." With that, Lancelot accompanied Guinevere to her chambers, where he gave her breasts a lot of licking, then moved on to licking her crotch. The arousal this caused in both of them was enough to lead the two into having sex. They, of course, never mentioned this to anyone. But Lancelot was satisfied. The next day, Merlin asked Lancelot for his 1000 gold coins. Lancelot, satisfied anyway, refused to do so. "You'll be sorry," said Merlin. Lancelot was called to Arthur's throne room the next morning. "It seems," King Arthur siad, "That I've caught Guinevere's infection." Lancelot looked at Merlin, who looked at him with an evil grin. ---------- In a mad world, only the mad are sane. -Akira Kurosawa  HI! ME AM BRASIL!!

He orders a drink and while he's drinking it the monkey is running wild. The monkey jumps up on the pool table and grabs the cue ball, sticks it in his mouth and swallows it whole. The bartender is livid and says to the guy, "Did you see what your monkey just did?" "No. What did that stupid shit do this time?", says the patron. "Well, he just swallowed the cue ball off the pool table, whole", says the bartender. "Yeah, well I hope it kills the little fucker because he's been driving me nuts", says the patron. The guy finishes his drink and leaves. Two weeks later he comes back in with the monkey. He orders a drink and the monkey starts running wild around the bar again. While the man is drinking his drink, the monkey finds a grape on the bar. He grabs the grape, sticks it up his ass, then pulls it out and eats it. The bartender is disgusted. "Did you see what your monkey did now?", he asks. "What now?", responds the patron. "Well, he stuck a grape up his ass, then pulled it out and ate it", says the barkeeper. "Well, what did you expect?", replied the patron. "Ever since he ate that damn cue ball he measures everything first!" There once was a man who owned a sausage factory, and he was showing his arrogant preppy son around his factory. Try as he might to impress his snobbish son, his son would just sneer. They approached the heart of the factory, where the father thought "This should impress him!" He showed his son the machine and said "Son, this is the heart of the factory. This machine here we can put in a pig, and out come sausages. The prudish son, unimpressed, said "Yes, but do you have a machine where you can put in a sausage and out comes a pig?" The father furious, thought and said "Yes son, we call it your mother."  Wow. The Monkey joke made me laugh! (2.50 / 2) (#167) by Fantastic Lad on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 12:49:32 AM EST  It's never the punchline with these things for me, and I suspect, many other people. It's always the way the joke is told which makes one actually laugh. Something about the way you described the patron and his attitude toward his obnoxious monkey and the poor bar keep somehow hit the right chord and really got me. All the other 'jokes' posted here seem to be more akin to clever punning than actual humor. --Nothing wrong with that, mind you, but only a well told story can make me laugh until my stomach hurts.

Being down on his luck and a little frustrated with life, he begins to talk with the bartender. As he's talking, a monkey that was sitting on top piano jumps down onto the bar, and begins taking a leak in the mans beer. The man notices the monkey, grabs the bartender by the collar and shouts, "What the hell is this? I'm gonna pound you for your goddamn monkey!" The bartender quickly replies, "Woo there, lad. This monkey isn't mine, its the pianists!" So the man walks over to the pianist, who is playin a tune, and shouts "Do you know your monkey pissed in my beer?!?" The pianist replies, "No, but if you hum a few bars, I'll try to fake it." -- Yes, shrubberies are my trade. I am a shrubber. My name is Roger the Shrubber. I arrange, design, and sell shrubberies.

 One from Poland (3.86 / 15) (#138) by MSBob on Sun Aug 18, 2002 at 11:24:07 PM EST

 Once there were three survivors of a shipwreck stranded on a desert island: two sailors and a nun. After a few weeks of hunting and foraging the sailors get horny and chat up the nun. At first she resists but over time the nun gets bored and horny and decides to give it a go. The triangle blossoms and everyone was happy. A year later however, the nun goes on a guilt trip and exclaims: "I've had enough of this sick perversion!". Then she promptly commits suicide. The two sailors left without any choice decide to satisfy one another. A year goes by however, and one of the sailors gets visibly upset and exclaims: "I have had enough of this sick perversion! Tomorrow, we're digging up the nun!" I don't mind paying taxes, they buy me civilization.

 A man is shipwrecked but manages to swim to shore with his dog. They find themselves on a mostly deserted island. There are, however, quite a few wild sheep on the island. After about a month of depriving himself sexually, he decides to go at it with one of the sheep. The problem is, every time he starts doing it, his dog starts biting his leg, trying to drag him away. He tries everything from trying to hide from his dog to tying his dog up, but each time, his dog finds a way to get free and find him and keep him from doing the deed. One day, he sees a small boat hit the reef that surrounds the island. He swims out and finds a woman floating lifelessly in the water. He drags her into shore and perfroms CPR on her and eventually revives her. When she finally regains consciousness, she says, "Thank you for saving my life! Is there anything I can do to repay you?" The man answers, "Can you keep my dog occupied for a couple of hours?" [ Parent ]

 Two white trash good ol' country boys in (insert backward southern U.S. state here) are sitting out on their front porch, watching the sun go down, when they notice a well-dressed woman from the city walking up their dirt lane. "Can you please help me?" she says, "My car broke down a couple miles up the road. I need to get to a town to get a tow." "Town's closed for the night by now, I reckon." replies one, "But you're more n' welcome to stay the night here with me and my brother." "Only problem is," says the other, "We only got one bed." "Well," says the woman,"I'm certainly not bothered by that. I'm a strong, independant woman and I know how to look after myself." So they all pile into bed that night, and the boys start going to work on this woman. At first, she resists, but finally she relents. "Fine, boys. We can fuck, but you have to put on these condoms." "Condoms? What the hell are those?" they exclaim. "You wear them on your dicks, so I don't get pregnant" she informs them. "Well, that's alright, I guess." they reply. And so they put on the condoms and get down to business. The next day they drive her to town and she goes on her way, never to see them again. About a month later, the two boys are back out on the porch, watching the sun go down again, when the one brother asks, "Hey buddy, you remember when that city lady spent the night a few weeks ago? Man, that was good." "Sure do, buddy." says the other. "But, do you really care if she gets pregnant?" "No." "Then why don't we take these goddamn condoms off now?! Shit!" [ Parent ]

"Don't be silly, dear," his wife says. "You know this car doesn't have cruise control." "Would you shut up?" the driver asks as the cop writes the ticket. "You should be happy the radar detector went off when it did," the wife says. "A radar detector, eh?" the cop asks. "That's illegal." He starts another ticket. "Damn it, woman!

 Are walking down the street on a cold winter day.  All of a sudden, God appears before them and declares "I grow tired of you humans, driven by your base instincts, doing whatever pleases you without regard to any morality.  You must walk the righteous path or suffer a terrible fate.  If any of you three should act on your impulsive desires and do what naturally occurs to you I shall cast you into the pits of Hell." The three, visibly shaken, continue on down the street.  Passing by a frozen lampost, the Polack runs over to it and licks it.  The earth trembles beneath him and opens up and eats him whole. The Jew and the Greek have a good laugh at his expense and keep walking.   Further on down, the Jew spots a shiny quarter lying in the gutter.  As he bends over to pick it up, the earth opens up again and swallows them both.

 Recently a routine police patrol parked outside a George Street tavern. After last call the officer noticed a man leaving the bar so intoxicated that he could barely walk. The man stumbled around the street for a few minutes, with the officer quietly observing. After what seemed an eternity of trying his keys on five vehicles, the man managed to find his car which he fell into.  He was there for a few minutes as a number of other patrons left the bar and drove off.  Finally he started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a fine dry night), flicked the blinkers on, then off, honked the horn and then switched on the lights.  He moved the vehicle forward a few inches, reversed a little and then remained still for a few more minutes as all the other vehicles left. At last, he pulled out of the parking lot and started to drive slowly down the road. The police officer, having patiently waited all this time, now started up the patrol car, put on the flashing lights, promptly pulled the man over and carried out a breathalyzer test. To his amazement the breathalyzer indicated no evidence of the man having consumed alcohol at all. Dumbfounded, the officer said, "I'll have to ask you to accompany me to the police station. This breathalyzer equipment must be broken." "I doubt it," said the man. "Tonight I'm the designated decoy."

 A farmer's rooster is getting old and is unable to service his hens any more, and finally keels over dead.  The farmer goes out the next day and buys a lively young rooster and brings it home.  It immediately fucks every hen in the coop, twice, before settling down for a brief nap.  Pleased, the farmer goes inside for dinner. Over the course of the next week, the rooster gets every hen, over and over, more times a day than the farmer can count.  Finally, the rooster has to chase the hens down to get any tail.  One day, the farmer comes out and sees that all of the hens are hiding, and the rooster is laying in the middle of the barnyard, legs in the air, stiff as a board.  The farmer comments: "I knew that rooster was going to screw himself to death!" The rooster says "Sssh!  Buzzards." --- Buy my stuff

 A Replacement (2.54 / 11) (#176) by qpt on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 01:16:45 AM EST

 Cigarettes are obviously highly addictive and readily available. In the absence of government intervention or a suitable supplement, I am not certain how cigarette smoking will ever be abolished. It is fortunate, then, that a replacement for cigarettes does exist, and is free of the accompanying health risks. Indeed, it is highly irresponsible, in my opinion, for the government - as well as such organizations as the AHHA - to not educate the public about this safe, clean alternative. I am, of course, referring to cock smoking. Because cock smoking does not actually involve the immolation of the involved cock, it is free of irritating and carcinogenic by-products. Further, cocks are cheaply acquired, costing far less than a package of cigarettes. Not only that, but since a cock is not consumed during cock-smoking, a single cock can provide for hours of wholesome smoking! With its smooth, delicious taste and texture, cock is a pleasure to smoke. As an added bonus, many doctors believe that cock smoking - at least in moderation - can have long-term health benefits, such as reduced risk of heart disease and increased cranial-vascular turpitude. For your own sake, next time you are itching for tobacco, please reach for a cock instead. Remember - Cock: The Sophisticate's Choice. Domine Deus, creator coeli et terrae respice humilitatem nostram.

 Three Criminals On The Run (2.75 / 12) (#180) by mortisimo on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 01:32:30 AM EST

 Three criminals are hiding in three different trees after a bank robbery. A cop looking for the criminals comes up to the first tree and thinks he sees something so he yells "Come out of the tree with your hands up!" The criminal in the tree says "Tweet! Tweet! Po-Tweet!" "Just a dimb bird!" says the cop and he moves along to the next tree. Again the cop thinks he sees something and yells up into the tree. The second criminal in the tree says "Meow! Meow! Meow!" "Just a stupid cat!" says the cop and he moves on the next tree. Again he yells out to come out of the tree. The third criminal in the tree says "Moooo! Moooo! Moooo!"

 Funny... (3.62 / 24) (#181) by GhostfacedFiddlah on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 01:34:41 AM EST

 This one sounds like it should be a racist joke, but I have trouble seeing the offence.  Apologies if anyone does get offended though. So a Chinese guy and a Jewish guy walk into a bar. On his way in, the Jewish guy slaps the Chinese guy in the head. "What the hell was that for?", exclaims the Chinese guy. "That was for Pearl Harbour." "That was the Japanese, not the Chinese, moron!" "Chinese, Japanese, it's all the same to me." So on his way out, the Chinese guy walks over and slaps the Jewish guy. "What the hell was that for?" "That was for sinking the Titanic." "What?  That was an iceberg!" "Iceberg, Goldberg, Rosenberg..."

This blond guy is sitting in a bar, located on the 10th floor of a high-rise building. Sitting next to him is a dark-haired guy who looks like he's been drinking awhile. The dark haired guy turns to the blond guy and says, "You know the alley between this building and the high-rise next door?" "Yeah, what about it?" answers the blond guy, as the bartender sets another drink down in front of him. "Well," says the dark-haired guy, "there's a really strong draft between the two buildings. If you jumped out the window, the draft would keep you from falling and bring you back up." "No way, you're lying," says the blond guy. "I'll prove it to you," says the dark-haired guy. So the two guys and the bartender walk over to the window. The dark-haired guy jumps out and starts to fall. About four floors from the ground, he starts heading back up. He grabs the window ledge and the other guy helps him back in. The blond guy decides he wants to try that, so he jumps out the window. But he doesn't come back up. Instead, he hits the ground with a SPLAT. The dark-haired guy returns to his seat, followed by the bartender. As the bartender gives him another drink, he says, "You know, you really are a mean drunk Superman." --- "See what the drooling, ravening, flesh-eating hordes^W^W^W^WKuro5hin.org readers have to say." -- pwhysall  Sam meets Leon (3.91 / 24) (#186) by iidkyimys on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 02:04:56 AM EST  Sam has been in the computer business for 25 years and is finally sick of the stress. He quits his job and buys 50 acres of land in Minnesota as far from humanity as possible. Sam sees the postman once a week and gets groceries once a month. Otherwise, it's total peace and quiet. After six months or so of almost total isolation, he's just finishing dinner when someone knocks on his door. He opens it and there is a big, bearded man standing there. "Name's Leon... Your neighbor from four miles away... Having a party Saturday... thought you'd like to come." "Great," says Sam. "After six months out here I'm ready to meet some local folks. Thank you." As Leon is leaving he stops, "Gotta warn you there's gonna be some drinkin'." "Not a problem... after 25 years in the computer business, I can drink with the best of 'em." Again, as he starts to leave Leon stops. "More 'n' likely gonna be some fightin' too." Sam says, "Well, I get along with people. I will be there. Thanks again." Once again, Leon turns from the door. "I've seen some wild sex at these parties, too." "Now that's not a problem," says Sam; "I've been all alone for six months! I'll definitely be there...by the way, what should I wear?" Leon stops in the door again and says, "Whatever you want, just gonna be the two of us."  *lol* (none / 0) (#300) by jethro on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 01:06:43 PM EST  I've been living in Minnesota for four years, and that is just SO true.

Sadly lacking: The Ultimate Chicken Joke (3.96 / 29) (#188) by Blarney on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 02:40:45 AM EST  A lonely man finds himself in need of sexual relief, so he goes to a local house of ill repute in order to obtain it. He meets the madam, and she tells him it costs$100. Fortunately, he has the $100 and she sends him to a room with a beautiful young woman in it. Sometime later, he returns to the same house, but he only has$10 due to an extended period of unemployment. The madam expresses her sympathies, and offers to help him anyway. She sends him to a room with a chicken in it. At first he feels greatly ashamed, but realizing that there is nobody to watch him he goes ahead and penetrates the rear of the bird, and successfully achieves orgasm. Even later, he is down to his last $5. The madam shakes her head sadly, but agrees to help him anyway. She sends him to a dark room with a window in it and several other lonely men like himself inside. Through the window, he can see a man having sex with the beautiful young woman whose attentions he had previously enjoyed. Overcoming his natural embarrassment, he unzips, takes himself in hand, and does what he needs to. The lights go on in the room, and the madam tosses in a roll of paper towels for the men to clean themselves up with. As he is wiping himself, another man speaks to him. He says: "You should have been here a few weeks ago. There was a guy in there fucking a chicken!" I heard this one in 3rd grade.

"There will be a party tonight at my place, are you interested?", asks the neighbor. The guy, already a bit bored of his quiet living, says "Okay, why not." "There will be some dancing and singing there", informs the neighbor. "It's okay, I can sing", he answers. "And know that there will be heavy drinking too." "That's not a problem either, I haven't had a drink since I moved here." "There will be fighting too", says the neighbor. "Uh, okay, I think I can live with that", he says. "And after all that's been done, there will be some wild sex." "Now that's good, I haven't got laid in ages!", he says, getting all excited about it. "So I can count you in?", asks the neighbor. "You bet you can", he says enthusiasticly. "Okay, so it's a deal. Tonight at my place", says the neigbor and turns to go away. "Wait, one last thing!", he yells after the neighbor.

(4.00 / 22) (#196) by matthijs on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 03:04:16 AM EST  I heard this one in a Dutch bar. I hope it survives my translation. A man walks into a bar with under his right arm a crocodile and in his left hand a baseball bat. After having a couple of drinks with the guys at the bar he wants to make a bet: - I bet you all that I can have this crocodile here hangin' on my nuts with his jaws for 30 seconds and after that everything comes out unscratched! Surely the men at the bar want to see that so they take the bet. The man drops his pants and puts the crocodile in place. After exactly 30 seconds he hits the crocodile on the head with the baseball bat and it lets go. All the men then may have a look upclose: everything completely unscratched! So the man wins his bets and everyone buys him a beer. After a while the man gets up again and asks: - Does anyone want to try it themselves? Silence. None of the men at the bar seems willing to try it out. Eventually a blond girl steps forward saying somewhat hesitantly: - I'm willing to try it sir ... but I'd prefer it if you don't hit me on the head with the baseball bat.

He's the bell-ringer at the church of Notre Dame, in France. He's been at the job for years. Never had a break. Never had a vacation. Nuthin. One day he decides it's about time he had some time off. Problem is, the whole town depends on him to ring the bell each hour...so he has to find someone to take his place while he's gone. The next day he puts a "help wanted" sign up in front of the church, and a day or two goes by and he hears someone coming up the stairs. As the guy gets to the top of the stairs, Quasimodo notices that the guy has no arms! "Hey, I'm here to apply for the bell ringer job." the guys says. He seems nice enough, but Quasimodo explains that to ring the bell you have to pull this rope pretty hard...and well, the guy doesn't have arms. "Oh, that's no problem!" the guy says. "Here, I'll show you..." The armless guy takes a few steps back, jogs in place a little, then runs full speed at the bell, dives at it and hits it with his head, ringing the bell. Quasimodo is a little surprised at this, but before he can say anything, the guy steps back again, gets a big running start, dives at the bell...and completely misses, falling out the bell tower window, down the church tower and into the square below. SPLAT! Quasimodo runs down the stairs to the square, where people have started to gather around the body. "Who was that?" one of them asks. "I don't know, but his face rings a bell!" ba da ching! So...Quasimodo still needs someone to fill in for him while he goes on vacation, and after all this business of the armless man jumping to his death, he's even more stressed out than before. To his delight, he hears somebody coming up the bell tower stairs. As he nears the top, Quasimodo notices to his astonishment that it's the SAME ARMLESS MAN! Quasimodo is speechless. The armless man notices the strange expression on Quasimodo's face and tells him that he is the twin brother of the man that was here earlier, and feels he has a moral obligation to do the job his brother came to do before his untimely death. Obviously, Quasimodo is a little nervous about this idea. "No worries." the armless man says. "Here, let me show you." With that, the man takes a few steps back, jogs in place a little, then suddenly runs full speed at the bell, dives and smacks it with his head. Quasimodo is beside himself. Before he can say anything, the brother takes a few steps back again, runs, dives...and completely misses the bell, falling down, down down...and SPLAT! The townfolk gather around and start asking who this second armless man was. Quasimodo answers "I don't know, but he's a dead ringer for his brother!" ...commence groaning.

[ Parent ]  MICROSOFT Bids to Acquire Catholic Church (2.00 / 7) (#204) by tbc on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 04:44:01 AM EST  From: Newswire Mailing To: IS Daily News Services for Executives Cc: Newswire Mailing Subject: MICROSOFT: Bids to Acquire Catholic Church Date: Tuesday, November 29, 1994 7:16AM MICROSOFT Bids to Acquire Catholic Church By Hank Vorjes VATICAN CITY (AP) -- In a joint press conference in St. Peter's Square this morning, MICROSOFT Corp. and the Vatican announced that the Redmond software giant will acquire the Roman Catholic Church in exchange for an unspecified number of shares of MICROSOFT common stock. If the deal goes through, it will be the first time a computer software company has acquired a major world religion. With the acquisition, Pope John Paul II will become the senior vice-president of the combined company's new Religious Software Division, while MICROSOFT senior vice-presidents Michael Maples and Steven Ballmer will be invested in the College of Cardinals, said MICROSOFT Chairman Bill Gates. "We expect a lot of growth in the religious market in the next five to ten years," said Gates. "The combined resources of MICROSOFT and the Catholic Church will allow us to make religion easier and more fun for a broader range of people." Through the MICROSOFT Network, the company's new on-line service, "we will make the sacraments available on-line for the first time" and revive the popular pre-Counter-Reformation practice of selling indulgences, said Gates. "You can get Communion, confess your sins, receive absolution -- even reduce your time in Purgatory -- all without leaving your home." A new software application, MICROSOFT Church, will include a macro language which you can program to download heavenly graces automatically while you are away from your computer. An estimated 17,000 people attended the announcement in St Peter's Square, watching on a 60-foot screen as comedian Don Novello -- in character as Father Guido Sarducci -- hosted the event, which was broadcast by satellite to 700 sites worldwide. Pope John Paul II said little during the announcement. When Novello chided Gates, "Now I guess you get to wear one of these pointy hats," the crowd roared, but the pontiff's smile seemed strained. The deal grants MICROSOFT exclusive electronic rights to the Bible and the Vatican's prized art collection, which includes works by such masters as Michelangelo and Da Vinci. But critics say MICROSOFT will face stiff challenges if it attempts to limit competitors' access to these key intellectual properties. "The Jewish people invented the look and feel of the holy scriptures," said Rabbi David Gottschalk of Philadelphia. "You take the parting of the Red Sea -- we had that thousands of years before the Catholics came on the scene." But others argue that the Catholic and Jewish faiths both draw on a common Abrahamic heritage. "The Catholic Church has just been more successful in marketing it to a larger audience," notes Notre Dame theologian Father Kenneth Madigan. Over the last 2,000 years, the Catholic Church's market share has increased dramatically, while Judaism, which was the first to offer many of the concepts now touted by Christianity, lags behind. Historically, the Church has a reputation as an aggressive competitor, leading crusades to pressure people to upgrade to Catholicism, and entering into exclusive licensing arrangements in various kingdoms whereby all subjects were instilled with Catholicism, whether or not they planned to use it. Today Christianity is available from several denominations, but the Catholic version is still the most widely used. The Church's mission is to reach "the four corners of the earth," echoing MICROSOFT's vision of "a computer on every desktop and in every home". Gates described MICROSOFT's long-term strategy to develop a scalable religious architecture that will support all religions through emulation. A single core religion will be offered with a choice of interfaces according to the religion desired -- "One religion, a couple of different implementations," said Gates. The MICROSOFT move could spark a wave of mergers and acquisitions, according to Herb Peters, a spokesman for the U.S. Southern Baptist Conference, as other churches scramble to strengthen their position in the increasingly competitive religious market.

SEATTLE (Reuter) -- In one of the oddest items yet to come spinning out of cyberspace, software giant Microsoft Corp. issued a statement Friday denying it was seeking to acquire the Roman Catholic Church. Such is life on the information superhighway. Microsoft, the largest software company in the world, fell victim to an electronic hoax that showed the much-ballyhooed superhighway can just as easily carry nonsense as well as useful data. The hoax forced the company to deny the report circulating on the Internet that it planned to acquire the Roman Catholic Church. The Internet is the global web of computer networks, reaching 20 million users. "The story has no truth and was not generated by the company," the Microsoft statement said. "The company is not aware how the electronic message originated but maintains strict policies internally concerning the proper use of electronic communications." A Microsoft spokeswoman said the false report, written in the guise of a news article supposedly issued by a major news organization, was first noticed a little more than a week ago. Since then, it has has bounced around on the Internet, generating a flood of angry telephone calls and electronic mail messages to the company. The item was even picked up and mentioned on the air by nationally syndicated radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, the spokeswoman said. The Internet is envisioned by Microsoft Chairman Bill Gates as a foundation for the information superhighway. It is also an important selling point of Microsoft's upcoming Windows 95 operating system and of the company's planned on-line network. But some Internet users have recently come under fire for turning it into an electronic free-for-all of unregulated communications, where the unwelcome are "flamed" with profane e-mail and pornography has sometimes been disseminated.

Struck by a sudden wish to experience an authentic pub, he decides to stop for a pint. He walks in and sits down at the bar. The Texan orders a pint, and decides to strike up a conversation with the guy next to him. He finds out that the guy is a farmer, and gets to talking about land. The farmer says, "I've got the biggest farm in the area, it leads all the way from just up the road to the county line!" The Texan, wishing to impress the farmer with the size of his ranch, says "You know, one day I decided for the heck of it to go and drive all the way across my land. Took me a whole day 'fore I saw the end of it." The Irishman nods his head sadly, saying "Oh, I know how it is." The rancher is surprised at the turn of emotion- how could having so much land be a sad thing? "What do you mean?" "Oh, I used to have a car like that myself, too."

They drink beer and argue and drink beer and fight and drink beer and lament... Suddenly a very well dressed gentleman enters the bar and our constuction worker friends start to argue about what he's doing for an occupation. Worker 1: "He must be a stock broker" Worker 2: "Nah, stock brokers don't come into shabby places like this, the guy's an accountant!" W1: "Never! He must be a stock broker." And so they argue and drink beer until the beer gets the better of one of our friends and he proceeds to the loo. Coincidentally there's the well dressed gentleman taking a leek at the other urinal. Our friend (let's call him W1) can't hold back and says: W1: "Excuse me and no offense, but my friend and I we where wondering what you're doing for an occupation." Well Dressed Gentleman: "No offense taken, in fact I have a rather interesting profession: I'm a logical scientist." W1: "Huh?" WDG: "I give you an example: Do you have a goldfish?" W1: "As a matter of fact: Yes, I do." WDG: "Now it's a safe guess, that you either keep it in a bowl or in a pond, which is it?" W1: "Yeah, you're right, it's in a pond." WDG: "Aha, it's a fairly simple conclusion then, that you probably have a garden and live in a big house." W1: (proudly) " Yeah, 6 bedrooms, I built it myself!" WDG: "But you wouldn't live alone in a six bedroom house. I assume you're married and quite likely have kids." W1: "Yeah, three kids!" WDG: "Ok, if you have three kids then it's a safe assumption that you have a lot of sex with your wife." W1: "Oh, absolutely; four times a week." WDG: "Well, if you have 4 times sex with your wife per week, then you probably very rarely masturbate." W1: "Who? Me? Never!!!" WDG: "You see, that's what us logical scientists do: From the little piece of information that you own a goldfish I could conclude how you live, your maritial and family status up to even including your sex life." Our construction worker friend is duely impressed and goes back to his pal. Immediately he blurts: W1: "I met the well dressed gentleman, I know what he does!" W2: "So, what is it?"

"I'm sitting right over there," pointing to my seat at the bar, "and I'm waiting on a very important client. Would you be so kind when she arrives as to come walk by and just say, 'Hi, Ray,'?" "Sure." I shook his hand and thanked him and went back to my seat. About ten minutes later, my client showed up. We ordered a drink and started to talk business.

Our two Limey friends - drunk as skunks - ask the pub keep: Who's that?The pub keep replies: That's father Mahoney, he's the most patient man in the universe and you really can't annoy him or insult him.Of course, drunk as they are our friends immediately go for the bait and one of them approaches father Mahoney: Father, did you know that the pope's a pox ridden faggot and that his mother is a syphilytic whore?Well,says father Mahoney: I happen to know, that you are wrong but if you truly believe this, then go in peace. Our English friend is flustered, to say the least, and his friend is not really impressed and decides to give it another shot: Father, do you know that the pope's an Englishman?

He's pretty overweight, so he decides to call the number, and they tell him to to just be at home at a certain time, and they'd send someone to meet him. At the appointed time, the doorbell rings, and there's a gorgeous woman in a tank top and shorts. She tells him seductively, "If you can catch me, I'll let you have sex with me," and starts running. He chases her for miles and miles, but finally catches up to her and they have wild sex. The next morning he weighs himself, and is pleased to find that thanks to all the running and the wild sex, he's 10 pounds lighter. It's a few weeks later and he's still rather overweight so he calls up the company and asks if they have any other weight-loss programs. "Well, there's the LOSE 20 POUNDS IN ONE DAY plan", they tell him. Just be at home at a certain time, and they'd send someone to meet him. At the appointed time, the doorbell rings, and this time there's two gorgeous women, both hotter than the previous one. They tell him seductively, "If you can catch us, we'll let you have sex with us." and start running. He chases them for miles and miles, but finally catches up to them and they have wild sex. The next morning he weighs himself, and is pleased to find that he's 20 pounds lighter! So it's a few weeks later and he's STILL a bit overweight so he calls up the company and asks if they have any OTHER weight-loss programs. "Well, uh, there IS the LOSE 50 POUNDS IN ONE DAY plan", they tell him. But, they say, it's rather extreme, and recommend it only if you really need to lose weight fast. He assures them that he does, so they reluctantly agree. Just be at home at a certain time, and they'd send someone to meet him. At the appointed time, the doorbell rings.

There are all kinds of elephants in the herd, along with a weeny, sickly pink elephant. The herd stumbles upon a huge tree-trunk which blocks their way; there is no way around or over it. They have to try to move it. A young, muscular elephant comes to the front: "Let me move the tree out of the way so we can get a drink!" He wraps its long trunk around the tree and heave, Heave, HEAVES... ...but the damn tree doesn't even budge. The herd is getting restless. An older and even bigger elephant comes to the fore: "Move out of the way, I'll lift the tree out of our way!" He wraps his trunk around the tree, sets his tusks below it for leverage, and heave, Heave, HEAVES... ...but the damn tree doesn't even budge. Now the herd is getting worried. But they give way to the eldest, a revered and strong elephant: "Now, young ones, let me show you how it's done!" He wraps his trunk around the tree, sets his tusks below it for leverage, settles his feet wide and low, and heave, Heave, HEAVES... ...but the damn tree doesn't even budge. The herd is getting desperate. There is no elephant bigger, stronger or more wise than those three. Suddenly, a small peep from the back of the pack is heard: "Let me try," says the pink elephant! The whole herd breaks out in incredulous laughter as they dismiss the pink elephant. But the eldest elephant says: "Hmmm, we have nothing to lose, let him try!" The herd gives way to the teensy elephant, who timidly mouses his way to the front. He wraps his tiny trunk around the tree, sets his stubby tusks below it for leverage, settles his itsy-bitsy feet wide and low, sets its little butt high up in the air, and heave, Heave, HEAVES... ...but the damn tree doesn't even budge.  not a joke, but funny in a different way.

 The Three-Legged Pig (3.46 / 15) (#240) by kur1ousoranj on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 09:23:40 AM EST

 One day, a man takes a trip into the countryside to visit his great-uncle Charlie, who is a farmer. As he parks his car in the driveway at the farm, he notices a pen full of animals, including a three-legged pig, which particularly catches his eye. So he enters the house, and is welcomed by Charlie. Man: "Hey, whats the deal with that three-legged pig outside? What's the deal with him?" Charlie: "Oh! That pig? He's a special one! Y'know one time when little Jimmy almost drowned in the pond, that pig ran in here and started squaling his life away to warn us! We followed him to the pond and rescued little Jimmy just in time! Man: "Really?" Charie: "Y'know, another time little Jimmy was trapped in the old well, and the pig came right back in here and started squealing and squealing at the top of his lungs! Again, he warned us and we were able to save little Jimmy! Man: "That's amazing!" Charlie: "And there was this other time, when the barn was on fire with little Jimmy inside, and this pig comes around squaling and squaling and squaling to warn us just in time for me to get Jimmy out!" Man: "That's fantastic! But still, what's with the three legs?" Charlie: "Oh, a pig like that? You don't eat him all at once!"
 A mathematician, a physicist and an engineer... (3.81 / 16) (#243) by anno1602 on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 09:29:27 AM EST

 ... have to jump from a 100m high board into a tub only 1 m in diameter. The engineer goes first. He climbs up the ladder, goes to front of the board to get a good view of the situation, and estimates how fast he has to run. Finally, he goes back, jumps and misses the center of the tub by only 20cm. Since this was close enough, he survives. The physicist starts out by carefully measuring the distance between ladder and tub, board length and a number of other parameters and sets down to calculate the correct speed and jump height to hit the tub. After 10 minutes, he is done, goes, up, jumps and hits the tub right in the center. Finally, the mathematician goes through the same measuring procedure, and then also settles down to calculation. It takes him more than 2 hours, proving a few new theorems along the way. At last, he also goes up, picks up a good measure of speed, jumps... and zooms right up into the sky. What happend?

The mathametician measures the circumference of the ball, uses the proper formula to calculate the volume of the ball. (C=pi*r^2 and V=4/3*pi*r^3.) The physicist takes it to his lab and measures the water displacement of the sphere and comes up with an amount. The engineer looked it up in his standard table of red rubber balls. --------- Q.

 A mathematician, a physicist and an engineer are put in jail, each one in his own cell. They havent eaten for days and a sadistic ward throws each of them a can of tuna, but no openener into the cell. The next day the ward looks into the physicist's cell: he sees the walls covered with mathematical equations and the can has been cleanly opened by a carefully designed experiment too complicated to tell here. Next the ward checks on the engineer: The walls of his cell are covered with oil and the can has obviously been squashed open brutally and after a lot of trial and error. Finally the ward looks into the mathematician's cell: he sees the man sitting on the floor, staring somewhat transfixed at the still closed can and hears him murmuring: "assume the can is open ..."

 This guy gets a tapeworm, so he decides to go to the doctor to see what he can do about it. The doctor tells him that there are two ways to get rid of it: a really fast, painless and expensive way, and another method, which takes 10 days but only costs $10. The guy just lost his job, so he opts for the$10 method. "Ok, drop your pants and I'll be right back", the doctor says. The guy complies and the doctor comes out of the back with 9 oranges and a sugar cookie. "Now, bend over", the doctor tells him. He then proceeds to shove the 9 oranges up the guy's ass, waits a little bit, and then sticks the sugar cookie in there, as well. He tells the guy to come back the next day. The guy comes back the next day, and its the same thing: 9 more oranges and another sugar cookie. In fact, that keeps up for the first 9 days of treatment. On the tenth day, the guy comes back and says: "Doc, are you sure today is the last day? This really hurts; I have 81 oranges up my ass... I can't even sit down." The doctor says, "Yeah, today's the last day." The guy drops his pants and bends over, but this time, the doctor comes out with 9 oranges and a baseball bat. He sticks the 9 oranges up the guy's ass, and picks up the baseball bat and he's waiting... ...and he's waiting... ...and all of a sudden, the tapeworm pops its head out of the guys ass and goes "Hey, where's my fucking sugar cookie?!" **WHACK**

 Death or Unga Bunga... (3.72 / 18) (#268) by mortisimo on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 11:13:41 AM EST

 Three Anthropologists are studying a tribe of savage cannibals. Perched carefully in a tree, they  are about to witness tribal rituals never seen before by civilized nations. Suddenly the branch breaks and they found themselves surrounded with spears at their throats. A man wearing a necklace skull and feathers approaches them. Amazingly, he speaks English. "You have disturbed our sacred rites, for this you must be punished" He looks at the first man and says, "Death or Unga Bunga?" The man, thinking that Unga Bunga is certainly better than death, sighs and says, "Unga Bunga." The chief yells, "Unga Bunga!!!" The cannibals all start jumping up and down, grunting, "Unga Bunga! Unga Bunga!" Then they pull down his pants, bend him over a log, and they all fuck him in the ass. After they are done, the chief says, "You are free to go." The man, battered and bruised, crawls back to his companions side. They drag out the next anthropologist, and the chief says, "You have two choice...Death or Unga Bunga." The anthropologist looks back at the first guy, who's in really bad shape, but he doesn't want to die, so he says, "I'll take Unga Bunga." The chief says, "Unga Bunga!!!" The cannibals all start jumping up and down, grunting, "Unga Bunga! Unga Bunga!" Then they pull down his pants, bend him over a log, and they all fuck him in the ass. And it's a lot worse for him, because of course it takes the cannibals alot longer the second time. After they are done, the chief says, "You too are free to go." The man crawls over to the first anthropologist and collapses. The chief then turns to the third anthropologist and says "Death... or Unga Bunga?" The third man looks at his friends who are in agony and decides that he would rather die than go through what they did. With a grim resolve, the man says "I choose Death." The chief turns to the crowd and says "He has chosen Death...." There is a hushed murmur in the crowd of cannibals. The chief continues "So we shall give him Death... Death by Unga Bunga!"

The Pope leans over and says to the Queen, "That was nothing...I bet I can make all of the Irish People in the crowd party wildy for a week with just a hand gesture too." The Queens says, "Well that is totally unbelievable - let's see." So the Pope slapped her....
 Just dropping in... (4.30 / 40) (#283) by upsilon on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 12:04:01 PM EST

 Three guys show up at the gates of Heaven and are greeted by Saint Peter, who explains to them that Heaven is a little behind the times. Their lives and deeds are on record except for the little half our. All three of them should be able to get in, but to be sure, Peter's gonna need to know the way they died. So the first guy steps forward and says, "Well, as I'm sure you're aware, I've been suspecting my wife of having an affair for a while. Her interest in sex suddenly dropped, like she's getting it from somewhere else, but I couldn't figure out who it was. "So I decided to sneak home one morning. As I'm riding the elevator up to our 25th floor apartment, I'm thinking what I'm going to do to the bastard, and I finally get to our apartment. I charge straight into the bedroom, and find my wife lying naked in bed, panting... but nobody else is there! "I search through the apartment, and I can't find him. Just then I hear cries from out on the balcony. I rush out there, and there he is, hanging off the edge of our balcony! I'm overtaken with rage, and rush inside and grab the first heavy thing I can find -- the refrigerator -- take it out on the balcony, and drop it on the son-of-a-bitch's head. "Unfortunately, the strain must've been too much for me. I think I had a heart attack, and here I am." Saint Peter looks concerned. "I'm not sure I can let you in. I'll have to get back to you." Then he turns to the second guy and asks how he died. "Well, I was doing my usual morning exercize routine on the balcony of my 26th floor apartment. To make a long story short, I lost my balance and went over the edge. Luckily for me, I caught the balcony directly below mine. I start yelling and screaming for help. Eventually, this guy comes out on the balcony, screams something incoherent at me, and disappears inside. 'Wait, where are you going?' I cried to him, just as he came back and dropped a refrigerator on my head!!" Saint Peter nods at him. "That is a tragic but perfectly blameless end to an otherwise good life. You may enter." He then turns to the third guy: "And how did you die?" "Picture this: There I am, hiding naked inside a refrigerator....." -- Once, I was the King of Spain.

 steak (none / 0) (#416) by servant on Tue Aug 20, 2002 at 11:21:29 AM EST

 I have no problems with Canadians no matter how many people bash them here in the States. I always show respect to a person's county when visiting and I have found Canadians to be some of the most polite people I have ever met. I do have one problem...steak cooked well done is not steak...it's beef jerky. Well done steak is a waste of good food. It is not "the way God intended"....God intended us to eat meat raw. Eat it medium rare at least for Christ's sake. [ Parent ]

 I've noticed that most ranchers order their steak very well done.  This is in contrast to farmers, miners, and city people who will order it rare.  I have no idea why this is, but it's an interesting contrast that you get to notice in a province whose industries mainly include farming, ranching, mining and oil.

 Breaking out the third grade chestnut: (2.88 / 9) (#290) by doctordank on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 12:34:19 PM EST

 A yellow toad goes to see the resident fairy about turning green to match all of the other toads. The fairy tells him "I can turn you green, except for your penis. For that you have to see the wizard". So she turns the rest of him green and sends him on his way. A pink elephant goes to see the fairy about turning grey and gets the same answer: He can be grey, except for his penis. He would need to see the wizard for that. "But how do I get to the wizard?" asks the elephant. "Simple!", replies the fairy, "just follow the yellow-dicked toad!".
 Three nuns... (3.87 / 16) (#293) by joemorse on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 12:45:27 PM EST

 Three nuns die in a car accident and ascend to Heaven's Gate. St. Peter is there to meet them. St. Peter: Sister Esther, Sister Theresa, Sister Mary - you've all lived good lives in the service of God, so you've been judged worthy to enter Heaven. Unfortunately, you all failed to repent before your unfortunate car accident, so you'll each have to correctly answer one question before I let you in. St. Peter: Sister Esther - what was the name of the first man on Earth? Sister Esther: Ohh, that's easy: Adam! bells ring, lights flash, gate opens up St. Peter: Sister Theresa - what was the name of the first woman on Earth? Sister Theresa: Ooh, that's easy: Eve! bells ring, lights flash, gate opens up St. Peter: Sister Mary - what were the first words Eve said to Adam? Sister Mary, with confused look: Ohh, that's hard... bells ring, lights flash, gate opens up Now let's you just drop them pants!        -Don Job, from Deliverance
 Another nuns dead at the gates of heaven joke (4.33 / 3) (#322) by FortKnox on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 03:52:35 PM EST

 A bus full of nun's parish and they are all lined up at the gates of heaven. The first nun, sister mary, is approached by Saint Peter. Peter asks, "Since you haven't repented before death, you must do it now." Sister Mary says, "Well, before I died.... I ... I ... I touched a penis" Saint Peter says, "Simply dip your finger in the holy water and you can pass" Sister Maria is next, and she says, "Saint Peter. I gave a man... well... I gave him a handjob. I'm terribly sorry!" Saint Peter says, "Simply dip your hand in the holy water and you can pass" All of a sudden there is a nun near the end of the line that comes running to the front, shouting "Saint Peter! Saint Peter! Wait! Wait! Wait!" Saint Peter says, "Dear Sister Francine, what is troubling you?" Sister Francine says, "Let me gargle with that stuff before Sister Ruth sticks her butt in it!!" -- Yes, shrubberies are my trade. I am a shrubber. My name is Roger the Shrubber.

 I once was on a plane where I was served by an obviously gay male flight attendant. At one point, he bounced over to where I was sitting and announced "The Captain has asked me to announce that he will be landing the big scary plane shortly, so if you could just put up your trays, that would be great." I did as he had instructed but the woman sitting next to me did not. A few moments later, our flight attendant came back and said to her: "Ma'am, perhaps you couldn't hear me over the big scary engine, but I asked you to please put up your tray so that the captain can land the plane." She still wouldn't comply. Now he was getting angry and asked her again to put up the tray. She then calmly turned to him and said: "In my country, I am called a princess. I take orders from no one." Our flight attendant replied: "Oh yeah? Well in MY country, I'm called a QUEEN and I outrank you, B I T C H , so put the tray up!" -- Save the environment, plant a Bush back in Texas.

 But here goes. Note, possibly offensive. An Arab and a Jew are on a plane -- Arab on the aisle, Jew at the window. At some point, the Jew wants an orange juice. The Arab says, "Don't bother climbing past me for it, I'll get it for you", and goes to the drinks cart. While he's gone, the Jew sees his opportunity and spits, forcefully and vigorously, into the Arab's left shoe. The Arab returns, notices nothing, hands the Jew the drink. After a little while, the Jew wants a beer. The Arab again says, don't bother, I'll get it for you. And while he's gone, the Jew spits into the Arab's right shoe. The Arab notices nothing until the plane starts his descent and he pulls out and stares at his sodden shoes. Sorrowfully he turns to the Jew and says: "You know, some day all this must end -- this mindless hatred, this pettiness, spitting into shoes, peeing into drinks..." (Note: if you're offended, reverse the roles)

For those unfamiliar with the genre, it's just your standard Polish/blonde/random ethnicity joke about Norwegians and best delivered in a bad Norskie accent. (And nobody gets pissed off if you make fun of Norwegians!) An odd variant from the Middle East, dealing with the class of Syrian border guard jokes: A man drives up to the Syrian border in an old Volkswagon Beetle. The border guards stop him and ask to see what's in the trunk. So the man walks up to the front of the car to open the trunk, but the guards stop him and say, "What kind of idiot are you? The trunk is in the back! Open the trunk!" The guy decided to go ahead and open up the back to show the guards that on the Bettle, the engine is in the back. So he opens it up, and the guards immediately throw the handcuffs on and lead him off to jail. The lead guard gets on the phone to report the crime. "We have caught a thief! He has stolen a car engine and is keeping it in his trunk! And he must have just stolen it recently, because it is still running!" Cheers, Mzilikazi

 Cheesy orchestra jokes, from the POV of a viola player. How many bass players does it take to change a light bulb? None. The piano player can do that with his left hand. At rehearsal, the conductor stops the orchestra. He glares at the bass section and says "You're out of tune back there, fix it immediately!" to which the bassists reply "We're in tune; all of the strings are precisely the same tension!" The first violinist shouts out "No, you morons! The pegs all have to be facing the same way!" Bass players spend half their time tuning their instruments and the other half playing out of tune. Why is a cello better than a viola? The cello burns longer. What's the definition of a minor second? Two violinists playing in unison. What's the difference between a fiddle and a violin?

Murphy's Laws of Combat/Business (3.70 / 10) (#321) by tbc on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 03:49:05 PM EST  On Engaging the Competition:A retreating enemy is probably just falling back and regrouping.If both sides are convinced they're about to lose, they're both right.If the enemy is in range, so are you.If you are short of everything but the enemy, you are in the combat zone.If your ambush is properly set, the enemy won't walk into it.If your attack is going well, then it's an ambush.If your flank march is going well, the enemy expects you to outflank him.If your opponents didn't have the courtesy to "Count Off!" before beginning, assume that there's one more somewhere.If your positions are firmly set and you are prepared to take the enemy assault on, he will bypass you.Never assume your opponent is out of ammo.Never turn your back on an armed bad guy, even if he's down.Once you have secured an area, don't forget to tell the enemy.One enemy soldier is never enough, but two is entirely too many.The enemy diversion you are ignoring is the main attack.Remember, a retreating enemy is probably just falling back and regrouping.Whenever you lose contact with the enemy, look behind you.On Leadership:For every action, there is an equal and opposite criticism.If you really need an officer in a hurry, take a nap.If you receive two contradictory orders, obey them both.If you take more than your fair share of objectives, you will get more than your fair share of objectives to take.If you whine about the weather, someone else will always whine louder.Never tell the Platoon Sergeant you have nothing to do.The more stupid the leader is, the more important missions he is ordered to carry out.The most dangerous thing in the world is a second lieutenant with a map and a compass.The perfect officer for the job will transfer in the day after that billet is filled by someone else.The tough part about being an officer is that the troops don't know what they want, but they know for certain what they DON'T want.On Training:Field experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.On Strategy:Cavalry doesn't always come to the rescue.Combat will occur on the ground between two adjoining maps.Fortify your front and you'll get your rear shot up.If you build yourself a bunker that's tough for the enemy to get into quickly, then you won't be able to get out of it quickly either.It is generally inadvisable to eject directly over the area you just bombed.Neutral countries -- aren't.The easy way is always mined.The trucks will be on the drop zone.There's no such thing as "unfair advantage."On Tactics:Density of fire increases proportionally to the curiousness of the target.If it's stupid but works, it isn't stupid.If you don't care where you are, you ain't lost.No matter which way you have to march, its always uphill.On Planning/Preparation:The enemy invariably attacks on two occasions: (1) when you're ready for them (2) when you're not.Exceptions prove the rule, and destroy the battle plan.No plan survives the first contact intact.Professionals are predictable, it's the amateurs that are dangerous.No combat ready unit ever passed an inspection.No inspection ready unit ever passed combat.On Communication/Intelligence:Communications will fail as soon as you desperately need fire support.Every command which can be misunderstood, will be.Radios will fail as soon as you need fire support.The degree to which you overreact to information will be in inverse proportion to its accuracy.The enemy never monitors your radio frequency until you broadcast on an unsecured channel.The enemy never watches until you make a mistake.To steal information from a person is called plagiarism. To steal information from the enemy is called gathering intelligence.On Demos:Everything always works in your HQ, everything always fails in the Colonel's HQ.On Teamwork:If you can keep your head while those around you are losing theirs, you may have misjudged the situation.Never draw fire -- it irritates everyone around you.Never share a foxhole with anyone braver than yourself.Suppression fire -- won't.Teamwork is essential -- it gives the enemy other people to shoot at.On Personal Success (for a Soldier, this reads, "Staying Alive"):A grenade with a seven second fuse will always burn down in four seconds.Anything you do can get you shot, including doing nothing.Don't look conspicuous; it draws fire. For this reason, it is not at all uncommon for aircraft carriers to be known as bomb magnets.Don't quit just because you're hit; GET EVEN!Drop the one with the shotgun first.If you can't remember, then the Claymore IS pointed at you.Incoming fire has the right-of-way.It's not the one with your name on it -- it's the one addressed "to whom it may concern" that you should be worried about.Mines are an equal opportunity weapon.Odd objects attract fire -- never lurk behind one.Once the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is not our friend.Smart bombs have bad days too.The bursting radius of a hand grenade is always one foot greater than your jumping range.The crucial round is a dud.The weapon that usually jams when you need it the most is the M60.There is nothing more satisfying than having someone take a shot at you, and miss.Those who hesitate under fire usually do not end up KIA or WIA.Tracers work BOTH ways.Try to look unimportant -- the enemy may be low on ammo.Whenever you drop your equipment in a fire-fight, your ammo and grenades always fall the farthest away, and your canteen always lands at your feet.Whenever you have plenty of ammo, you never miss. Whenever you are low on ammo, you can't hit the broad side of a barn.You'll only remember your hand grenades when the sound is too close to use them.On Excessive Force:Air defense motto: shoot 'em down; sort 'em out on the ground.B-52s are the ultimate close support weapon.If at first you don't succeed... call in an air-strike.When in doubt, empty your magazine.On Priorities:A sucking chest wound is nature's way of telling you to slow down.The following is suitable for copying and pasting into text e-mail  Friendly fire isn't.

" "You bloody well not piss on the plate! You go to the toilet!" Why is your staff always saying "Go to toilet?" Is that a modern British tella? You know, I am 23 years old and I know for myself when I wanta go to toilet. Then in the evening I ago downe to ristorante for dinner. Spoon and knife is laid out on the table. But no fork.

He gives him a big tip, saying "Keep the change." He has a couple more drinks, always paying right away, and tipping very well. Eventually, he says to the bartender, "I'll bet you five bucks I can bite my right eye." The bartender has already got more than five bucks off the guy in tips, and wants to keep him around, so to be friendly, he agrees, slapping a fiver on the bar. The customer takes out his false eye, and bites it. The bartender laughs, says "Fair enough," and goes about his business. A little while later, after a couple more drinks and good tips, the customer says, "I'll bet you twenty bucks I can bite my left eye." The bartender says, "You already did that one, and it's your right eye that's fake." The customer, quite drunk, says, "I know which eye is fake. I'm betting you twenty bucks I can bite the real one." The bartender, watches the customers left eye follow him around the room for a second, then puts a twenty on the bar. The customer pulls out his false teeth, and uses them to bite his left eye. The bartender laughs again, but he's regretting having given away$25 worth of tips. A couple of drinks later, the guy at the bar says, "I'll bet you two hundred dollars that if you put a shot glass at one end of the bar, I can piss in it from the other end of the bar, without spilling a drop." The bartender replies, "Show me the two hundred," and the customer slaps it down on the bar. The bartender mulls it over. There's no one else in the bar aside from a couple of guys sitting at a table in the corner, and it's near closing time. He figures it's worth his while. He puts two hundred dollars on the bar, and sets a shot glass down at one end. He says, "Go for it." The guy waddles down to the end of the bar, whips it out, and pees all over the place. Bar, stools, glasses, floor. He's like a yellow lawn sprinkler. The bartender picks up his $200 take, sticks it in his pocket, and smiling, starts to clean up the mess. As he's cleaning, the customer leaves. When he's done, he looks up, and there are only the two guys off in the corner. They seemed to be crying. He goes over to ask them what's wrong, and they say, "Some guy just bet us two thousand dollars that he could piss on your bar, and you'd clean it up with a smile on your face."  Worst joke ever.

(3.83 / 12) (#332) by pb on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 04:36:34 PM EST  A priest was driving along and saw a nun on the side of the road he stopped and offered her a lift, which she accepted. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing the habit to open and reveal a lovely leg. The Priest had a look and nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun looked at him and immediately said, "Father; remember Psalm 129?" The priest was flustered and apologized profusely. He forced himself to remove his hand. However, he was unable to remove his eyes from her leg. Further on while changing gear, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said "Father, remember Psalm 129". Once again the priest apologized. "Sorry sister but the flesh is weak". Arriving at the convent, the nun got out, gave him a meaningful glance and went her way. On his arrival at his Church, the priest rushed up to retrieve the Bible and looked up Psalm 129. It said, "Go forth and seek, further up you will find Glory".

"What's in the bag, son?" The kid reaches into the bag and pulls out a mushroom. "A toadstool!" "Whatcha gonna do with that toadstool, son?" "Gonna catch me some toads!" The old man bursts out laughing. "Now hold on there, son! You cain't catch no toads with a toadstool! That's just plain silly. Toads and toadstools ain't got nothin' to do with each other, don't you know that?" "You'll see," said the boy. That afternoon the kid comes walking back the other way and his bag is stuffed full of something. The old man get curious and asks, "What's in the bag, son?" "Toads!" The boy walks over to show the man, and sure enough, there's dozens of toads in there, hopping all over each other. "Holy smokes," says the man, "lookit all them things in there." "I told you I was gonna catch me some toads," says the boy as he walks away. "See you next weekend." Next weekend the old man is sitting on his porch and the kid walks by again, with a roll of tape in his hand. "Whatcha got there, son?" "Duck tape!" "Whatcha gonna do with that tape?" "Gonna catch me some ducks!" The old man busts up laughing again. "Now hold on there, son! First of all, son, it's not 'duck tape,' it's 'duct tape.' But anyhow, there ain't no way you're gonna catch no ducks with that there tape." "You'll see," says the boy. Sure enough, the kid comes walking back that afternoon trailing 35 feet of tape behind him, with ducks stuck to it every eight inches or so. "Holy smokes," the old man said, "How many of those things you got thrashing around on that tape?" "I dunno, maybe 40 or 50 I think. I told you I was gonna catch me some ducks." The old man is speechless, his mouth agape. "See you next weekend," says the boy. A week later, the old man is on his porch again, and the kid walks by again, this time carrying a stick.

The priest took pity of him and told him to go to the field in back of the convent where the nuns would pick mushrooms, and lie down naked. The man went to the field, and he sees that all the mushrooms look like penises. So he strips and lays down, and soon enough a hot young nun comes along, singing and picking mushrooms. "La La La, one mushroom two mushroom three mushroom..." ...and she comes to the man and grabs his dick... "four... four... four... this one's stuck..." ...and the man got off on the handjob and the nun, unaware, moved on. The man enjoyed this greatly and comes back the next day, strips, and lies down. This time a middle aged, average looking nun comes. She begins singing and picking mushrooms. "La La La, one mushroom two mushroom three mushroom..." ...and she comes to the man and grabs his dick... "four... four... four... this one's stuck..." And he gets off again, but not as well as with the hot young nun. So he decides to visit the mushroom field again on the third day. He strips and lies down naked for the third time. He sees an old, ugly, and muscular nun coming, but he is too embarassed to get up. So he lays there and the ugly muscular nun starts picking the mushrooms. She sings in a deep masculine voice, "La la la, one mushroom, two mushroom, three mushroom, four mushroom, five mushroom..." 7 Why do Scotsmen wear kilts?

In their drunken revelry, they decide it would be funny to get some string and tie up the conductor's sheet music for the last part of the symphony. The conductor doesn't notice this and he starts the music. The bass section is playing horribly because of their drunkenness, and the conductor becomes visibly flustered because of this. As the symphony draws near to the end, the conductor comes to where the sheets of music are tied together. He frantically starts trying to conduct the music from memory while untying the sheet music, and he starts sweating profusely and looks as if he is about to faint or have a fit. A member of the audience rushes up to him and asks if he is alright. The conductor answers, "I don't know - the bassists are loaded, it's the bottom of the Ninth, and the score is tied!"

I never even tried to quit." The demon says "Great, well then you'll love Mondays. Monday is when we all hang out in here and sit around smoking." They walk a bit farther and pass a huge bar stocked with all sorts of liquor. "Are you much of a drinker?" asks the demon. "I'm Irish, of course I like to drink," replies the man. "Then you'll love Tuesdays. We spend all day in here drinking." They walk a bit farther and enter a large casino with various card tables, slot machines and the like everywhere. "Are you much of a gambler?" "I used to pretty much gamble away every paycheck. When I had a job." "Well then you'll like Wednesdays. We get together every Wednesday and gamble all day."

The vines are thick, the air is thick and he is making a slow trek as he slahes throught the foliage. All of a sudden he drops a few feet. He realizes, much to his dismay that he has fallen into quicksand. Just a bit out od reach is a large vine by which he could extricate himself. However, he just can;t reach it. He waits. About a half hour later a native walks by and the hunter asks, "Native Native please throm me that vine. I've fallen into quicksand and I cannot get out." The native pauses, and thinks for a moment. And replies, "OK, I'll throw you that vine if you suck my dick." The great white hunter thinks for a moment, looks down, and replies, "I just can't do that I must wait for someone else to come along." More time passes and he's up to his waist Another native walks by, and again the hunter asks, "Native Native please throm me that vine. I've fallen into quicksand and I cannot get out." The native pauses and says, "OK, I'll throw you that vine, but you have to suck my dick." The hunter thinks for a few moments this time, considers it, but cannot. "NO, I could never" Finally and hour and a half pass, he is desperate. Another native walks by, and the hunter says, "Native Native, please throm me that vine, I'll do anything, I'll suck your dick, anything." The native pauses, looks around. Slams his foot onto the head of the hunter, and exclaims, "fucking faggots"  What does a redneck say right before he dies?

So I asked people online to send my HDs. Eventually, someone did send me an old HD. I plugged it in, and found that he'd forgotten to erase it. The drive was filled with easy listening and Celine Dion mp3s. It also had quite a bit of hardcore porn on it. I immediately deleted the disgusting trash. Eventually, when I needed more space, I got rid of the porn, too. If there really is a causation between porn and rape, then I say bring on the bukkak  Is no one going to bust out the tiny piano??? (4.25 / 4) (#364) by curunir on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 07:54:01 PM EST  A man walks into a bar and pulls a 5" tall piano and a tiny piano player out of his pocket and the tiny man begins to play a beethoven sonata. The bartender walks over to him and remarks, "Wow...that's really cool. Where did you get that?" The man replies, "There's a geenie down the street and he's granting wishes, but be very careful what you wish for..." The bartender says, "Yeah, yeah, careful what you wish for, it might come true...the old proverb...whatever...I QUIT!" then runs out of the bar. 2 minutes later the bartender returns to the bar amidst a tremendous roar of quacking and flapping. He goes over to the man who told him about the genie and says, "That geenie is all f'd up...I wished for a million bucks, then all of a sudden I was surrounded by more ducks than I've ever seen before in my life!"

[ Parent ]  Pretty Sick (1.50 / 4) (#368) by Scurra on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 08:06:30 PM EST  This is possiby the sickest joke that I tell on a regular basis... I quote directly from http://www.everything2.com/index.pl?node_id=703436 Once upon a time, there was a man named Bill. Now, Bill had a problem.. you see, he had a 12" long penis, and to date, had never been able to get the whole thing into a woman. Bill, after a number of years of trying, got frustrated enough to go to the local brothel and ask the madam if she could help him out. The madam was so sure that she could help him out that she offered him a guarantee - that he would manage to fit the entirety of his enormous schlong into one of her girls and have fantastic sex with her. If the girl couldn't do the job, he could come back to her and she would let him have one of her other girls until his needs were met. Bill, being no fool, saw the great opportunity that this was, and took her up on it. He handed the Madam the money, and she said "First door on your right, her name is Sally, have a good time, loverboy." Well Bill went upstairs, first door on the right, and saw a cute little brunette waiting for him. She must have been only about 5'3", and he thought to himself "She'll never be able to take me." Anyways, so the two get down to the dirty, and he's slowly trying to slide all the way in. He gets 6".. 7"... 8".. and she screams in pain. Frustrated, he gets up from the bed and, carrying his clothes in front of him, walks down to the parlor where the Madam is sitting. "Madam, Sally really couldn't do what you promised me," he said. "Now don't you worry, Billy.. go back upstairs and try the second door on your right, her name is Rachel." Bill went back upstairs, opened the second door on his right, tossed his clothes in the corner and hopped on Rachel. She moaned in approval as he started to slide his massive member into her.. 8".. 9"... and she screamed in pain. He didn't even bother picking up his clothes this time, he just headed down the stairs. "Madam," he started.. "Now Billy, don't you worry, I have JUST the girl for you. Go down to the last door on your left. Don't talk to her, don't turn the lights on, just fuck her silly and enjoy yourself." Bill thought this was somewhat strange, but he was a tad too flustered to think straight, so he did what he was told. He found her on the bed, ass high in the air, ready to be humped like the whore that she was. He obliged, and managed to fit all the way in. Bill was happily pumping away when he noticed that the girl was FOAMING at the MOUTH. Bill screamed in horror and dashed out the door and down the stairs, shouting as he went, "Madam, madam, there's something wrong with that girl!!" The Madam didn't seem too flustered, she just hollered down the side hallway, "Harry! Get up to room 9, the dead girl is full again!!"

The first old man asks the other: "Boris, where were you born?" Boris replies: "Vitya, I was born in St Petersburg." "Ah, so was I. Where did you grow up?" Boris frowns a little, remembering. "Vitya, I grew up in Leningrad." "Da, Leningrad. And where do you live now?" Boris frowns a little more. "Now I live in Stalingrad. And do you know what, Boris?" "Nyet, Vitya. What?" "I wish I still lived in Saint Petersburg." It's a little sad, but that's what makes it authentically Russian. "The believer is happy.

The joke, of course, is that the 20th century saw the same city bear all of these names. Having them live in Stalingrad (so named from 1925 to 1961; it was Tsaritsyn before, and Volgograd after) wrecks the joke, though the same joke could conceivably be told about that city as well (nevertheless, Russians always tell it about Peterburg -- a far more important city). By the way, I've never encountered the proverb "The believer is happy. The doubter is wise" in Hungarian. Where did you hear it?

The first one says, "My dog can do more than roll over and play dead. Watch. Here Fido!" Fido trots out, he rolls over, plays dead, walks on his forepaws, finishes his floor exercises with a polka. For his work, he gets a cookie. The second dog owner says, "Aw, that's just physical prowess. What about mental exertion? Here Rover!" Rover trots out, successfully adds a few numbers together (2 plus 2, 3 plus 3, 23876 plus 45687), responds to commands in German, corrects his owner's French, and proves the Pythagorean theorem on his way out. For his work, he gets a cookie. The third owner says nothing but, "Yo, Fifi!" Fifi walks out, fucks both Fido and Rover, and gets their cookies.  Corny Catholic Joke (3.40 / 5) (#377) by MoonVine on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 09:53:15 PM EST  A beautiful young girl went into the nearby city to find work. They were all very, very poor, and her mother was old, and as she was the only living child she had gone to work to support her family. After a few months she came to her little hamlet with lots and lots of money. The mother was ecstatic upon her return and the amount of wealth she had acrued. Her mother immediately asked, "So what exactly do you do there?" Her daughter honestly replied, "Mother, I have become a prostitute." Mother, aghast, exclaims, "You have become what?!" And promptly faints. After about a half an hour, the mother came to and asked again, "Now tell me again what you have become." And the daughter replied again, "Like I said before mother, I have become a prostitute." The mother then said, "Oh! Thank God! Hail Mary! I thought I heard you say that you had become a protestant.

So one of the nuns agrees to be his caddy. The two of them get to the first hole, the priest swings, hits the ball, it goes flying through the air... but misses the hole. "Goddammit, I missed!" the priest shouts. "You shouldn't say that," the nun warns him. They get to the next hole, the priest swings, hits the ball, it goes flying through the air... but he misses again. "Goddammit, I missed!" "You shouldn't say that," the nun repeats. "One of these days he's going to strike you down with lightning." The priest ignores her, and they go on to the next hole. He swings, hits the ball, it goes flying through the air... and he misses again. "Goddammit, I missed!" the priest shouts. All of a sudden the sky clouds over and a bolt of lightning comes down... hits the nun. A voice from the sky booms: "Goddammit, I missed!"  Kind of dated (3.80 / 5) (#380) by a on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 10:19:37 PM EST  Background info: At the time this joke was originally told (it can be applied to other, current political figures, but in the interest of accuracy I'm telling the joke as it was told to me), the following was true: George H. W. Bush was the President Dan Quayle was Vice President Mario Cuomo was Governor of New York While giving Bush and Quayle an aerial tour of New York, Mario Cuomo opens the door of the airplane and drops two one-dollar bills. "I just made two New Yorkers happy," he says. Quayle sits there thinking about it for a minute. Then he stands up, walks to the door and drops 10 one-dollar bills. "I just made ten New Yorkers happy," he announces. Bush gets up, pushes Cuomo out the door, and says "I just made 'em all happy."  Three Blind Drunk Mice (4.11 / 9) (#381) by mortisimo on Mon Aug 19, 2002 at 10:20:49 PM EST  Three mice were sitting at a bar talking about how tough they were. The first mouse slams a shot and says, "I play with mouse traps for fun. I'll run into one on purpose and as it is closing on me, I grab the bar and bench press it 20 to 30 times." And, with that, he slams another shot. The second mouse slams a shot and says, "That's nothing. I take those poison bait tablets, cut them up, and snort them, just for the fun of it." And, with that, he slams another shot. The third mouse slams a shot, gets up, and walks away. The first two mice look at each other, then turn to the third mouse and ask, "Where the hell are you going?" The third mouse stops and replies, "I'm going home to fuck the cat."

Well, after a while, he starts feeling the beer so he makes his way over to the restroom and begins to relieve himself. In walks this short little dude, not much more than 4 ft, dressed in a green and yellow suit, and he walks up to the urinal. Now, the thing is pretty high up, and the guy's thinking no way is the short guy gonna be able to actually piss inside it - but the short Irishman unzips his fly and unrolls this HUGE schlong that has no problem reaching up over the edge of the porcelain. "Hold on a second! You're a leprechaun, aren't you?" asks the guy. The dude in green replies "Aye, that I am". "Well, then you have to give me three wishes, since I caught you, right?" The leprechaun sighs and says, "Aye, I suppose I do." Getting excited now, the man says the first thing that comes to mind - "I wish I was rich!!" The leprechaun claps his hands, and says "Done! When ye get home tonite, your house will be full of money!" "Ok, ok... well, the next wish is easy: I wish for lots of hot chicks to be my sex slaves!" Once again, the leprechaun claps his hands, and exclaims "Done! There'll be dozens of babes just waitin' for ye when ye get home tonite!" "Uhm... well, since I have tons of money, and tons of babes, about the only thing I need now is a dick the size of yours!" The leprechaun grimaces at that. "Aye... well, that'll be a mite hard to do. I'm gonna hafta, you know, do you up the rear." The man is a little appalled by this suggestion, but he figures since he's rich, has women, and is about to have the biggest dick in the world, he can take a little action in his backside. "Ok, just this once, but take it easy on me, I've never done this before." "Aye, all right mate, don't you worry," says the Leprechaun, and so they get it on in the stall for a bit. Of course, it hurts like hell because well, his member is so BIG, but the guy grits his teeth and keeps thinking of all the women and the money, and most of all, his enlarged manhood, and bears it. A few minutes later, the short Irish guy whispers in his ear, "So, now that we're gettin all friendly like, how old are you?" A little confused, he replies "26, why?" "Aren't you a little old to be believing in Leprechauns?" -DQé ... Use tasteful words. You may have to eat them.  Quite a Buzz...

A minute later, the alien touches him and goes *bzzt*. The man decides not to pay any attention. A few minutes later, the alien does the same thing again -- touch him and go *bzzt*, apparently enjoing itself. The man ignores this as well. When the alien does this a third time (barely resisting laughter), the man is irked. "Hey, could you stop that?" he asks. The alien touches his arm and goes *bzzt* a few minutes later, giggling. The man, annoyed, says, "Stop it!" But the alien couldn't help itself, and that *bzzt* was the last straw for the man. He gets up and says, "THAT DOES IT! WE'RE GOING OUTSIDE AND SETTLING THIS!" So they go outside and start to fight. In the course of the melee, the alien's pants fall off, revealing to the man that it has no genitalia. The man, curious, asks the obvious question: "If you have no genitalia, how do you have sex?" With that, the alien touches him and goes *bzzt*. ---------- In a mad world, only the mad are sane. -Akira Kurosawa  Yet another true one (4.37 / 8) (#398) by jgp on Tue Aug 20, 2002 at 02:59:07 AM EST  I'm invited out to play a game of squash with a friend. Good stuff - stumbling around, sweating, hitting, missing, the hours fly by. Too many hours - four of them. I'm feeling fine at the end of the day, but wake up a little sore the next. Ooohh.. Second day it really bites - can't walk down stairs, can't ever roll over in bed. I get asked out to a social event and have to decline. The guy I played with tells people "He's not coming - squash wrecked him". Strangely the new filters around my firends for a few days. The following days, I start getting calls from people, asking how I am and wondering if they can help in any way. Rather strange I think - it's like they thing I'm dying or something. A few weeks later it gets back to me that people were being so nice because they though I'd somehow managed to suffer a squashed rectum - no one knew how I'd sustained such a perplexing but obviously un-comfortable injury, but it certainly didn't sound like fun.

Barman: "Was it the 2nd wish that made you look like that then?" The lad replies: "No, I asked to have a wallet with an infinite amount of cash in, and it worked."

 (Better verbally) Two guys were both interviewing for the same job and the employer was at a loss. Both candidates were equally qualified, and he really didn't know how to choose. Since he felt bad just flipping a coin or something, he decided to have a little contest. He invited both men into his office and told them the situation. Since the position was technical, he decided to have an impromptu poetry contest. "Today we're going to have a little poetry contest to test your creativity. I'll give you five minutes to create a short poem. Whoever thinks of the best poem gets the job. To make things interesting, your poem must end in the word 'Timbuktu'. Your time starts now." Five minutes pass, and the employer calls time. "Okay lads, time is up. You, tell me yours first." "Okay, here goes", says the man. Out across the desert sand, A camel caravan. Underneath skies of blue, Destination: Timbuktu "Very good" says the employer. "Okay, you're next." "Alright, here it is", says man number two. Tim and I a-fishing we went, Came across three girls in a tent Them being three and us being two, I buk one and Timbukto!

 My favorite joke... An elephant is walking along a path when he steps on a thorn. It gets struck deeply in his foot. He soon finds that his trunk is to big to get a grip on the thorn and he can't pull it out. So as he is sitting there in pain, he notices an ant walking along the path. "Mr Ant, please help me. Please pull this thorn out of my foot" The ant looks at the elephant for a little bit and says "I'll pull that thorn out on one condition. You have to let me fuck you in the ass." The elephant can't believe it, but he is in alot of pain so he says OK. So the ant grabs the thorn and tugs and tugs and finally it pops out. "Now it's time for my payment Mr Elephant" says the ant. So the elephant resigns himself to the fact that he is going to get it up the ass from and ant. The and walks around the elephants back, pushes his tail out of the way and starts going at it like crazy. A monkey sitting in a tree sees all this starts laughing, grabs a coconut, whips it down and pegs the elephant in the head. The elephant yells "OUCH!" The ant yells "TAKE IT ALL BITCH!!!" -w

 my favorite two jokes (4.33 / 3) (#429) by schussat on Tue Aug 20, 2002 at 04:11:03 PM EST

 A couple of days late, but here goes nontheless: Number one: A guy is sitting in a bar feeling sorry for himself. He looks around and says, "Look at this bar; I built this bar for all my friends to share, but do they call me 'Michael the bar-builder?' No, they don't call me 'Michael the bar-builder.' "And look outside," he says. "I built that fence out there for the whole town to use. But do they call me 'Michael the fence-builder'? No, they don't call me 'Michael the fence-builder.' "And the pier! I built the pier," he says, "and gave it to the whole village for them to dock their boats. But do they call me 'Michael the pier-builder?' No! They don't call me 'Michael the pier-builder.'" He gets really serious and says, "But you know, you fuck just one goat ..." Number two: These two cows are chewing their cud, hanging out in a field, when one cow says to the other, "Hey, what do you think of this mad cow disease? Pretty scary, huh?" And the other cow says, "Don't talk to me; I'm a helicopter." And a third, bonus joke, my favorite Scottish proverb: Red sky at night, shepherd's delight; red sky at morning, sheep are on fire.

At sunset we'll meet up again and talk about what we did." So the they do it and they talk about what they did. "So, what did you do?" "Well I walked north for a while and I found a lake. I rented a boat and went fishing. How about you?" "I walked south and I saw a woman tied to some train tracks. I untied her and we wound up having sex all day. It was incredible!" "Cool. Did she give you a blow job?" "No, I couldn't find the head."

 Told to a Baptist by a Catholic: Man goes to confessional, sits down and starts to begin when he is interupted by the priest " I am so sorry my son but I have been in here all day and I have to go to the restroom, could you please sit in my stead for a couple of minutes while I am gone. This is the slow part of the day and I am sure no one will come in." The man thinks it over and decides it should be ok for a couple of minutes. So the priest leaves and the man sits down to take his place. Of course no sooner had he sat down, as someone enters the booth. The stranger begins his confession "Father forgive me for I have sinned". The man is scared shitless thinking to himself "What the hell do I do now?!" Thinking it over for a few seconds he decides that since the stranger can't see him he can probably get away with this. "Confess your sins my son" he says. "Father I have committed the heinous act of sodomy." "Crap!?" thinks the man "what do I do now? What penance do you give out for that?" Looking outside he sees an altar boy walking by "Psst, hey kid" he says to get the boys attention. "Yes sir?" says the boy "Tell me what does the Father usually give for sodomy?" The boy answers "Usually a new pair of sneakers!" ---------------------------------------:-p To err is human, or I could be wrong. If you can't poke fun at it, get a sharper wit.

 A nun and an agnostic are working together to help the homeless in a war-torn land. One day a small child grabs the agnostic to get her attention. Agnostic : "Yes?" Child : "Why is there war?" Agnostic : "There's too many people and not enough resources. People dress it up with many names, but essentially they're killing each other for land." Overhearing this, the Nun grabs the Agnostic and hauls her away from the child. "You can't tell the child that! He'll lose all hope!" Nodding and apologizing, the Agnostic goes back over to the child. Agnostic : "I was wrong about why there is war." Child : "Why is there war, then?" Agnostic : "God hates you."

"Well Father all they do all day is say "Do you want to have sex?". I have tried everything to get them to stop but they will not." The Father thinks for a second and says "Why don't you bring them over and we can put them in the cage with my birds. Once they see my parrots praying maybe they will begin praying also." The woman excitedly agrees. The next day she brings over her two parrots. They place them in the cage with the two praying parrots and step back to watch. Sure enough the womans parrots say "Do you want to have sex?" Then one of the praying parrots looks at the other parrot and says "You can put down the beads now, our prayers have been answered!" ---------------------------------------:-p To err is human, or I could be wrong.

 Tech Joke (3.20 / 5) (#467) by 2chance on Thu Aug 22, 2002 at 12:27:48 PM EST

 A guy walks into a bar and sits down. After a few minutes, he starts dialing on the back of his hand as if it's a telephone. He then flips his hand over and starts talking into his palm. The bartender walks over and tells the guy it's a tough neighborhood and he doesn't need any trouble from weirdos. "You don't understand," the man says. "I'm very high tech. I've had a phone installed in my hand because I was tired of carrying a cell." "Prove it!" So the guy dials up a number and presents his hand to the bartender. The bartender talks into the hand and carries on a brief conversation. "That's incredible," says the bartender. "I would never have believed it!" "Yeah," says the guy. "I can keep in touch with my broker, my wife, you name it. By the way, where is the men's room?" The bartender directs him to the men's room. The guy goes in and five, ten, twenty minutes go by. Fearing the worst given the violence in the neighborhood, the bartender goes into the men's room. The guy is spread-eagled against the wall. His pants are pulled down and he has a roll of toilet paper shoved up his butt. "Oh my god!" says the bartender. "Did the locals rob you? Are you hurt?" The guy casually turns around and says, "No, I'm OK. I'm just waiting for a fax."
 EMP (Engineer, Mathematician and Physicist) joke (3.60 / 5) (#468) by jlseagull on Thu Aug 22, 2002 at 01:41:06 PM EST

 An Engineer, a Mathematician, and a Physicist are taked with building a fence for a Texan's ranch that encloses the most amount of area using the least fence.  The engineer goes first.  She builds a circular fence about 100m in diameter, and states that her design is the most efficient under the conditions stated.  With much handwaving, the Physicist proposes to build a fence around the equator of the earth, as the curvature of the 2D surface of the earth in 3D will enable more area to be enclosed per unit of perimeter.  His design is thrown out for lack of practicality.  By this time, the Mathematician has finished thinking.   The Engineer and the Physicist follow him to the very back of the Texan's property.  He takes 4 short sections of fence, builds a tiny fence around himself, and says... "I declare myself to be on the outside."

Next day and Chief comes walking in again, and still does not look happy. "Chief, whats wrong? Did those I gave ya not work?" Chief says "Chief go Unnghh, Squaw go Unnghh rubber go boom!" Upon hearing this again the pharmacist thinks for a second and tells the Chief to wait a minute. The pharmacist heads to the back of the store and finds an old tire tube. He cuts it up and stitches it together to make a crude but workable condom. He goes back up front and hands it to the Chief "Here ya go Chief, I guarantee you this one will work." The Chief thanks him and leaves. The next day the Chief comes in and man does he look horrible. The Pharmacist is suprised to see him looking so bad and asks "Chief what in the world has happened to you? Did the rubber I made for you work? Tell me what happened."

 buying condoms (3.00 / 2) (#473) by squinky on Fri Aug 23, 2002 at 10:06:18 AM EST

 A man walks up to the the pharmacy counter and requests some condoms. The woman behind the counter says, "what size do you need?" The man says, "Size?, average I guess." "You guess?", says the clerk, "we better measure to be sure". So she unzips his pants, pulls  out his penis to check and says,"Yep-- average." and gives him his condoms. A little later an elderly man requests some condoms. "What size sir?" The man is taken aback--"Size?" "I better check," She examines his penis,"you're a large", and she hands him his condoms. A teenage boy comes up to her next and whispers, "Can I get some condoms?" "What?" she shouts, "You need some condoms?" The teenager looks around embarrassed and nervously hisses, "Yes". "Well, I'll need to see what size you need." The teenager says, "You'll need to *see*!" "Yes, I'll need to *see*", she says, "now come here." She unzips his pants, then she leans over to the microphone of the public address system and says, "Clean up in pharmacy."

 A priest, a doctor, a lawyer, and an engineer are at the first tee. The foursome ahead of them is hacking [unlike tech, in golf it's always bad to be a hacker :-] all over the course trying to get to the first green. So our foursome goes to the ranger and asks why he hasn't kicked the duffers off the course. The ranger says, "Oh, we won't do that! You see, all four of those men are very brave firemen who saved the clubhouse a month ago from a raging fire. But they all lost their sight. To show our gratitude, we gave them the right to play on the course any time they want." The priest says, "Oh, what a tragedy. Tonight I'll say a prayer for those courageous souls." The doctor says, "My friend is the best ophthalmologist in the country. I'll bet he can help them." The lawyer says, "They settled way too low. I bet I could get them a better deal." So then the engineer says, "Why can't you just make them play at night?!"

 The Great Actor (3.00 / 3) (#485) by cbraga on Mon Aug 26, 2002 at 12:42:30 PM EST

 There was once a great actor who could no longer remember his lines. After many years he finds a theatre where they are prepared to give him a chance to shine again. The director says, "This is the most important part, and it has only one line. You walk on to the stage at the opening carrying a rose. You hold the rose to your nose with just one finger and thumb, sniff the rose deeply and then say the line 'Ah, the sweet aroma of my mistress.'" The actor is thrilled. All day long before the play, he's practicing his line over and over again. Finally, the time comes. The curtain goes up, the actor walks onto the stage, and with great passion delivers the line, "Ah, the sweet aroma of my mistress." The theatre erupts. The audience is screaming with laughter, but the director is steaming! "You bloody fool!" he cries. "You have ruined me!" The actor is bewildered, "What happened, did I forget my line?" "No!" screams the director. "You forgot the rose!" ESC[78;89;13p ESC[110;121;13p

 Scooby dooby.... (3.00 / 1) (#492) by NFW on Fri Aug 30, 2002 at 12:25:52 AM EST

 A flat-chested young lady goes to Dr. Smith for advice about breast enlargement. The doctor tells her not to worry about implants... instead, he says, "Every day when you get out of the shower, rub your nipples and say, 'Scooby dooby doobies, I want bigger boobies.'" She did this every day faithfully, and after several months, it worked! She developed great boobies! One morning, she was running late and forgot her morning ritual. She was on the bus when she realized... At this point she loved her new boobies and didn't want to lose them, so she sat and murmured, "Scooby dooby doobies, I want bigger boobies," as discreetly as she could. A guy sitting nearby asked her, "Do you go to Dr. Smith, by any chance?" "Why, yes, I do! How did you know?" "Hickory dickory dock... -- Got birds?
 Johnny and Alligator (4.00 / 1) (#493) by NFW on Fri Aug 30, 2002 at 12:27:41 AM EST

 One day, Grandma sent her grandson Johnny down to the water hole to get some water for cooking dinner. As he was dipping the bucket in, he saw two big eyes looking back at him. He dropped the bucket and hightailed it for Grandma's kitchen. "Well now," his grandmother asked, "where's my bucket and where's my water?" "I can't get any water from that water hole, Grandma," exclaimed Johnny. "There's a BIG ol' alligator down there!" "Now don't you mind that ol' alligator, Johnny. He's been there for years... Why, he's probably as scared of you as you are of him!" "Well, Grandma," replied Johnny, "if he's as scared of me as I am of him, then that water ain't fit to drink!" -- Got birds?

 World's Funniest Joke: two hunters, one collapses (none / 0) (#495) by tbc on Sat Oct 05, 2002 at 10:18:13 PM EST

 Conclusively proven :-) to be the world's funniest joke: Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other guy whips out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator says: "Calm down, I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a shot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says: "OK, now what?"
