  2. Mildred, the church gossip, and self-appointed monitor of the church’s morals, kept sticking her nose into other people’s business. Several members did not approve of her extracurricular activities but feared her >enough to maintain their silence.

    She made a mistake, however, when she accused George, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked in front of the town’s only bar one afternoon.

    She emphatically told George (and several others) that everyone seeing it there would know what he was doing.

    George, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment and just turned and walked away. He didn’t explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing.

    Later that evening, George quietly parked his pickup in front of Mildred’s house, walked home, and left it there all night.

    You gotta love George.

  3. A man went to a brain store to get some brain to complete a study. He sees a sign remarking on the quality of professional brain offered at this particular brain store. He begins to question the butcher about the cost of these brains.

    “How much does it cost for engineer brain?”

    “Three dollars an ounce.”

    “How much does it cost for programmer’s brain?”

    “Four dollars an ounce.”

    “How much for lawyer brain?”

    “$1,000 an ounce.”

    “Why is lawyer brain so much more?”

    “Do you know how many lawyers we had to kill to get one ounce of brain?”

  4. A drunk was proudly showing off his new apartment to a couple of his friends late one night and led the way to his bedroom where there were a big brass gong and a mallet.

    “What’s that big brass gong ?” One of the guests asked. “It’s not a gong. It’s a talking clock,” the drunk replied. “A talking clock? Seriously?” asked his astonished friend. “Yup, ” replied the drunk. “How’s it work?” the friend asked, squinting at it. “Watch,” the drunk replied. He picked up the mallet, gave the gong an ear-shattering thump, and stepped back.
    The three stood looking at one another for a moment. Suddenly, someone the other side of the wall screamed, “You *&#$*#… it’s three-fifteen in the morning!!”

  5. A touching story

    carsntunes
    Guest
    A father put his three-year-old daughter to bed, told her a story and listened
    to her prayers which she ended by saying: “God bless Mommy, God bless Daddy, God
    bless Grandma and good-bye Grandpa.” The father asked, “Why did you say goodbye
    grandpa?” The little girl said, “I don’t know daddy, it just seemed like the
    thing to do.” The next day grandpa died. The father thought it was a strange coincidence.

    A few months later the father put the girl to bed and listened to her prayers
    which went like this: “God bless Mommy, God Bless Daddy, and good-bye Grandma..”
    The next day the grandmother died. Oh my gosh, thought the father, this kid is
    in contact with the other side.

    Several weeks later when the girl was going to bed the dad heard her say: “God
    bless Mommy and good-bye Daddy.” He practically went into shock. He couldn’t sleep all night and got up at the crack of dawn to go to his office. He was nervous as a cat all day had lunch sent in and watched the clock. He figured if he could get by until midnight he would be okay. He felt safe in the office, so instead of going home at the end of the day, he stayed there, drinking coffee, looking at his watch and jumping at every sound.

    Finally, midnight arrived, he breathed a sigh of relief and went home. When he
    got home his wife said: “I’ve never seen you work so late, what’s the matter?” He
    said, “I don’t want to talk about it, I’ve just spent the worst day of my
    life.”She said “You think you had a bad day, you’ll never believe what happened to me. This morning my golf pro dropped dead in the middle of my lesson.”

  6. Did anyone watch raceline and hear all of the bullshit propagana that Daivid Ragan just said about how great that the sport us doing right now?
    I haven’t heard so much unicorns and rainbows bullshit propaganda lies in quite awhile?

    Then the rest all chimed in to agree with his bullshit.

  8. A Polish immigrant went to the DMV to apply for a driver’s
    License. First, of course, he had to take an eyesight test. The
    Optician showed him a card with the letters:
    ‘C Z W I X N O S T A C Z.

    “Can you read this?” the optician asked.
    “Read it?” the Polish guy replied, “I know the guy.”

One of my best friends growing up was of Polish descent, he used to tell more Polish jokes than I ever did German ones (of course I know the book of German humor is a ream of blank paper with a cover) I always get a great laugh from them. I really miss the days when we understood a joke without worrying that someone didn’t know it was a joke.

    Man was drafted by the Army.
    On his first day in basic training, the Army issued him a comb.
    That afternoon the Army barber sheared off all his hair.
    On his second day, the Army issued Herman a toothbrush. That
    Afternoon the Army dentist yanked seven of his teeth.

  10. A woman meets a man in a bar. They talk; they connect; they end up leaving together. They get back to his place, and as he shows her around his apartment, she notices that one wall of his bedroom is completely filled with soft, sweet, cuddly teddy bears.

    There are three shelves in the bedroom, with hundreds and hundreds of cute, cuddly teddy bears, carefully placed in rows covering the entire wall!

    It was obvious that he had taken quite some time to lovingly arrange them and she was immediately touched by the amount of thought he had put into organizing the display.

    There were small bears all along the bottom shelf, medium-sized bears covering the length of the middle shelf, and huge, enormous bears running all the way along the top shelf.

    She found it strange for an obviously masculine guy to have such a large collection of Teddy Bears, but doesn’t mention this to him, and actually is quite impressed by his sensitive side.

    They share a bottle of wine and continue talking and, after a while, she finds herself thinking, “Oh my God! Maybe, this guy could be the one!

    Maybe he could be the future father my children?”

    She turns to him and kisses him lightly on the lips. He responds warmly. They continue to kiss, the passion builds, and he romantically lifts her in his arms and carries her into his bedroom where they rip off each other’s clothes and make hot, steamy love.

    She is so overwhelmed that she responds with more passion, more creativity, more heat than she has ever known.

    After an intense, explosive night of raw passion with this sensitive guy, they are lying there together in the afterglow.

    The woman rolls over, gently strokes his chest and asks coyly, “Well, how was it?”

    The guy gently smiles at her, strokes her cheek,

    looks deeply into her eyes, and says:

    “Help yourself to any prize from the middle shelf.”

  11. A young blonde was on vacation in the depths of Louisiana. She wanted a pair of genuine alligator shoes in the worst way but was very reluctant to pay the high prices the local vendors were asking.

    After becoming very frustrated with the “no haggle” attitude of one of the shopkeepers, the blonde shouted, “Maybe I’ll just go out and catch my own alligator so I can get a pair of shoes at a reasonable price!” The shopkeeper said, “By all means, be my guest. Maybe you’ll luck out and catch yourself a big one!” Determined, the blonde turned and headed for the swamps, set on catching herself an alligator.

    Later in the day, the shopkeeper is driving home, when he spots the young woman standing waist deep in the water, shotgun in hand. Just then, he sees a huge 9-foot alligator swimming quickly toward her. She takes aim, kills the creature and with a great deal of effort hauls it on to the swamp bank. Lying nearby were several more of the dead creatures. The shopkeeper watches in amazement. Just then the blonde flips the alligator on its back, and frustrated, shouts out, “Damn it, this one isn’t wearing any shoes either!”

  12. A guy went to a travel agent and tried to book a two-week cruise for himself and his girlfriend.

    The travel agent said that all the ships were booked up and things were very tight, but that he would see what he could do.

    A couple of days later, the travel agent phoned and said he could now get them onto a three-day cruise.

    The guy agreed and went to the drugstore to buy three Dramamine’s and three condoms.

    Next day, the agent called back and said that he now could book a five-day cruise.

    The guy said, “I’ll take it,” and returned to the same pharmacy, to buy two more Dramamine’s and two more condoms.

    The following day, the travel agent called yet again and said he could now book an eight-day cruise.

    The guy agreed and went back to the drugstore. He asked for three more Dramamine and three more condoms.

    The pharmacist looked sympathetically at him and said, “Look, if it makes you sick, why do you keep doing it?”

  13. National Cheeseburger Day.
    What do you eat with your cheeseburger. I’ll go first. Cottage cheese. That’s is because I get these boxes of frozen cheeseburgers at Costco. They take 1 minute in microwave. Are moist and good. For people like me who don’t cook, put off til the last minutes and then want to grab something fast. I don’t have fries at home so the cottage cheese goes good with catsup. Too much information?????

Freeze them in packs of two, take one pack out when the mood strikes me .. that also set the reminder to turn the oven on about an hour b4 dinner, load up the cookie sheet with frozen french fries, they take 24 minutes @ 475….. I usually fix a double burger, two strips of bacon with american cheese in between… lettuces, tomato and a touch of mayo …… HUMMMM

    2. Great Day! I have found some 100% Angus beef frozen ones, the brans is Sams Club so I was reluctant to try them but the sale price was too good to pass up. Outside of being too large for my personal taste (1/3 pound) they are super. A package is six patties that I break in to and rewrap as singles. As far as what I eat with them, it varies I do fries sometime and cottage cheese others but I’m not above just grilling a burger and calling it a meal.

  14. THIS MUST COUNT AS THE BEST MOTHER-IN-LAW JOKE!

    A married couple was in a terrible accident where the man’s face was severely burned. The doctor told the husband that they couldn’t graft any skin from his body because he was too skinny.
    So the wife offered to donate some of her own skin. However, the only skin on her body that the doctor felt was suitable would have to come from her buttocks. The husband and wife agreed that they would tell no one about where the Skin came from, and they requested that the doctor also honor; their secret. After all, this was a very delicate matter.

    After the surgery was completed, everyone was astounded at the man’s new face. He looked more handsome than he ever had before! All his friends
    and relatives just went on and on about his youthful beauty!

    One day, he was alone with his wife, and he was overcome with emotion at her sacrifice. He said, “Dear, I just want to thank you for everything you did for me. How can I possibly repay you
    “My darling,” she replied,
    “I get all the thanks I need every time I see your mother kisses you on the cheek.”

  16. Whoever in NA$CRAP that decided to change the name of “The Chase” over to “The Playoffs” is a total retard.

    Driving a race car isn’t referred to as “playing”.

    This isn’t a stick and ball game. NA$CRAP won’t draw the football and baseball viewers over with a stupid patronizing name change. Yet they are indeed that fucking stupid enough to believe it because they did it.

    Trying to emulate the stick and ball sports offends the past fans of this “sport” as well as to all auto racing fans who have more than two brain cells.

    No word yet if he will even remain in NASCAR or not.

    And another one gone, and another one gone, another one bites the dust!

    One more long time bigger name gone from the “sport”.

    If a few more of the remaining ones leave, then Kryle will finally have the big pond all to himself.

    He always enjoyed being the big fish in the little pond/peeing in the kiddie pool in the Xfinity and trucks series.

    Now he’s eventually become the last carp left in the stinky stagnant pond.

When going through Parris Island and constantly getting crap because of my size one of the funniest moments was when the platoon Guidion carrier, a star fullback on the Catholic High School from my hometown fainted and fell on me when they were giving him an inoculation with one of those air guns they use for mass production. The laugh was worth having his six foot three two hundred plus pound body almost knock me over. I was quick enough to avoid full contact fro the moose.

  18. When I was at Citigroup (end of my career) the CEO was a self made multi millionaire. He got all excited about buying a yacht and I remember I had to go down and “receive” a group from England who was to help the wife and him to pick out their china for the yacht. Finally it came. He had a party at NYC harbor and then took it to the Riviera. His bodyguards told me that his fancy yacht looked like a dinghy compared to the other “oil” yachts there. The CEO immediately came home, was not happy, and started the process of buying another bigger yacht. For some, it is NEVER enough.

When I was quite young and quite broke I was working as Production Manager for this crazy old printer in Boston, the old coot that owned the place was in the market for a Hatteras fifty-six feet or larger but didn’t want to be bothered by a bunch of yacht brokers, so he ran an ad in some yachting magazines with my name and office number and didn’t tell me until I started getting phone calls. I don’t think I had enough money to buy a 5.6-inch plastic toy boat at the time. He never could understand why it upset me.

If memory serves, back in the day on weekends we didn’t race, everyone took their drag boats to Tappahannock and put in there to go cruse the beaches (not smart in drag boat) and drink Rolling Rock beer in the small green bottles. ( Rolling Rock Beer was terrible accept for on the water, never did understand why)… Long story short, locals in that beach front community saw us as a huge nuisance, hide their daughters and had to tolerate our 427 Chevy engines as Virginia had not yet ban dry stack headers, which we all ran……

            My guess is that the craft beer drinkers may buy it as an alternative to help offset the effect the other stuff has on their budget.

  19. Sept.10 saw a photo of the Towers during their last sunset on Sept. 10, 2001. Even that put my body in the feel of terror. This year I just couldn’t watch. Odd how that works. Too many memories, too much fear for months, reminded of how the city smelled of an odd smoke for weeks on my balcony. Remembered the terror of walking home in silence in Manhattan with fighter jets flying over…..and yet felt so thankful to live in a country that, in addition to so many great things, remains shocked to have such thing happen on their land.
    God bless all those in the towers, at the Pentagon and in all 4 planes. We are so fortunate and so easily forget. God bless us all everyday. We DO have to remember this to help us stay vigilante and to appreciate this country. God bless us all and my dear friends here.
