Red-Hot
Summer Jokes Q: What did the pig say at the beach on a hot summer's day?
A: I'm bacon! * Girls are time and money: girls = time * money;
but, time is money: time = money;
which implies: girls = money * money;
which implies: girls = money^2;
but, money is the root of all evil: money = (all evil) ^1/2;
which implies: money^2 = all evil;
therefore, all girls are evil: girls = all evil. * Major Premise: Power corrupts;
Minor Premise: Knowledge is power;
Conclusion: Knowledge corrupts. * Smart man + smart woman = romance;
Smart man + dumb woman = affair;
Dumb man + smart woman = marriage;
Dumb man + dumb woman = pregnancy. * One sodium atom says "oh no! I think I lost an electron", another atom asks "are you sure?", "Yeah! I'm positive". * Abraham Lincoln was accused of being two~faced. Lincoln replied, “If I had two faces, do you think this is the one I’d be wearing?” * President John Kennedy once read a fake telegram from his rich father, "Jack, Don't spend one dime more than is necessary. I'll be damned if I am going to pay for a landslide." This effectively stole the power of the accusation that his campaign was largely financed by his father. * Ronald Reagan’s most powerful tool was his self~deprecating humor. When his advanced age was used against him by Senator Mondale during the 1984 campaign, intentionally misunderstanding he quipped, "I will not make age an issue of this campaign. I am not going to exploit, for political purposes, my opponent's youth and inexperience." * Q: What is black and white and read (red) all over? A1: A newspaper. (The oldest and most common answer, because red is also the pronunciation of read; this class of joke works only when spoken aloud so that which homophone is meant is misconstrued because of the inclusion of other colors. This is also related to Word play.) A2: An embarrassed zebra. (This is funny primarily because most people are familiar with the older joke and expect the interpretation to be "read" rather than "red." See Why did the chicken cross the road? elsewhere on this page for more instances of the same phenomenon.) A3: A bloody skunk. (A penguin, a nun, or any likely wearer of a tuxedo can also be used in place of a skunk. Also "sunburnt" can be used in place of "bloody.") A4: A nun/penguin/business man in a blender. A5: Two nuns/penguins/business men having a chainsaw fight. A6: A nun/penguin/business man rolling down a hill. ...and so on.

Every summer, he would invite one friend or another to stay with him there for a week or two. One summer he invited a Czechoslovakian friend to visit him. The friend, happy to get anything free from a lawyer, eagerly agreed. When the time came, they spent a wonderful time, getting up early every morning and enjoying the great outdoors. One morning, as the lawyer and his Czechoslovakian friend were picking raspberries and blueberries for their breakfast, they were approached by two huge bears~~a male and a female. The lawyer noticed them in time to run for cover. His friend, however, was not so lucky. The male bear reached him and swallowed him whole. Seeing this, the lawyer ran back to his Mercedes and raced for the nearest town to get the local sheriff. The sheriff grabbed his high~powered rifle and raced back to the berry area with the lawyer. All the while, he was plagued by visions of lawsuit from his friend's family. He just had to save his friend. Luckily, the bears were still there. "He's in THAT one!" cried the lawyer, pointing to the male. The sheriff looked at the bears, leveled his gun, took careful aim, and shot the female. "What did you do that for?!" exclaimed the lawyer, "I said he was in the other bear!" "Exactly," replied the sheriff. "Would you believe a lawyer who told you that the Czech was in the male?" * On a cheerful summer holiday weekend a man walks into the butcher shop that has a sign in the window saying "Ground Sirloin: 29 cents per pound."
"I'm having a cookout this weekend," the man says, "and I'd like 5 pounds of your ground sirloin, please."
The butcher shakes his head and says, "Sorry. I'm all out."
The disappointed man goes down the street to another butcher shop and asks, "How much is your ground sirloin?"
"It's $3.29 per pound."
"Three twenty nine?" exclaims the man. "Just up the street they are selling it for 29 cents!"
The butcher smiles calmly at the gentleman and asks, "Does he have any?"
"No. He's out of it right now."
"Well," says the butcher, "When I don't have any, I can also sell it for 19 cents per pound!" Q: A child, an honest politician, and Santa Claus all spot a $20 bill on the ground. Who picks it up?
A: The child. The other two don't exist. * A couple are touring a graveyard when they spot a tombstone that reads "Here lies a politician and an honest man." The man says to the woman, "Look honey, there's two people in that grave." * You're sitting in your riverfront office one day, when you see a lawyer and an IRS agent drowning. You can only save one of them. Do you (a) read the paper, or (b) go to lunch? * One day <President> went to see a fortune teller, and asked him, "When will I die?". The fortune teller said ,"On an <Other country>'s holiday". <President> asked, "Which one?" The fortune teller said, "It doesn't matter, any day you die will be made into a new <Other country>'s holiday." * A Dutchman was explaining the red, white and blue Netherlands flag to an American.
"Our flag is symbolic of our taxes. We get red when we talk about them, white when we get our tax bills, and blue after we pay them."
The American nodded. "It's the same in the USA only we see stars too!" * Five Needs for a Great Relationship: 1. It is important that a man helps you around the house and has a job. 2. It is important that a man makes you laugh. 3. It is important to find a man you can count on and doesn't lie to you. 4. It is important that a man is good in bed and loves making love to you. 5. It is important that these four men don't know each other. * The Widow : A successful rancher died and left everything to his devoted wife. She was determined to keep the ranch but knew very little about ranching, so she placed an ad in the newspaper for a ranch hand. * Two men applied for the job. One was gay and the other a drunk. She thought long and hard about it, and when no one else applied, she decided to hire the gay guy, figuring it would be safer to have him around than the drunk. * He proved to be a hard worker who put in long hours every day and knew a lot about ranching. For weeks the two of them worked hard and the ranch was doing very well. * Then one day, the widow said to the hired hand, "You've done a really good job and the ranch looks great. Go into town and kick up your heels." The hired hand readily agreed and went into town the next Saturday night. However, one o'clock came and he didn't return. Two o'clock and no hired hand. He returned around two~thirty and found the widow sitting by the fireplace. She quietly called him over to her. * "Unbutton my blouse and take it off," she said. Trembling, he did as she directed. "Now take off my boots." He did so, slowly. "Now take off my socks." He did. "Now take off my skirt." He did. "Now take off my bra." He did as he was told. "Now," she said, "take off my panties." He slowly pulled them down and off. Then she looked at him and said, "Don't you ever wear my clothes to town again." ~~ * Sick Day Negotiations between union members and their employer were at an impasse. The union denied that their workers were flagrantly abusing the sick~leave provisions set out by their contract. One morning at the bargaining table, the company's chief negotiator held aloft the morning edition of the newspaper, "This man," he announced, "called in sick yesterday!" There on the sports page, was a photo of the supposedly ill employee, who had just won a local golf tournament with an excellent score. A union negotiator broke the silence in the room. "Wow!" he said. "Just think of what kind of score he could have had if he hadn't been sick!" ~~ * Zen and Contemporary Wisdom 1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either. Just leave me the hell alone. 2. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and a leaky tire. 3.

Never test the depth of the water with both feet. 6. If you think nobody cares if you're alive, try missing a couple of car payments. 7.

They had no money to get a taxi and were staggering all over the place when they found themselves outside the bus depot on Cunningham Road. Dave had a brainwave and said to Terence "Get in there and steal a bus so we can drive home and I'll stay out here and look out for the police". So Terence breaks into the garage and was gone for twenty minutes while Dave was wondering what the hell he's doing. Eventually Dave sticks his head around the door and sees Terence running from bus to bus and looking very worried. "What the bleedin' hell are you doing Terry, get a move on!" Terence replies "I can't find a number 67 anywhere Dave" whereupon Dave, holding his hands to his head in disbelief, shouts "You ****ing idiot Terry, steal a number 25 and we'll get off at the roundabout and walk the rest of the way!" ~~ * Frog : A woman went into a store to buy her husband a pet for his birthday. After looking around, she found that all the pets were too expensive. She told the clerk she wanted to buy a pet, but she didn't want to spend a fortune. "Well," said the clerk, "I have a very large bullfrog. They say this breed has been trained to give blowjobs!" „Blowjobs!" the woman replied. "It hasn't been proven but we've sold 30 of them this month," he said. The woman thought it would be a great gag gift, and what if it's true...no more blowjobs for her! She bought the frog. When she explained froggy's ability to her husband, he was extremely skeptical and laughed it off. The woman went to bed happy, thinking she may never need to perform this act again. In the middle of the night, she was awakened by the noise of pots and pans flying everywhere, making hellacious banging and crashing sounds. She ran downstairs to the kitchen, only to find her husband and the frog reading cookbooks. "What are you two doing at this hour?" she asked. The husband replied, "If I can teach this frog to cook, your ass is gone.‰ ~~ WHY WE LOVE CHILDREN A small boy is sent to bed by his father. Five minutes later.... "Da~ad...." "What?" "I'm thirsty. Can you bring drink of water?" "No. You had your chance. Lights out." Five minutes later: "Da~aaaad....." "WHAT?" "I'm THIRSTY. Can I have a drink of water??" "I told you NO!"

"When you come in to spank me, can you bring a drink of water?" ________________________________________________ One summer evening, during a violent thunderstorm, a mother was tucking her son into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, "Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight?" The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. "I can't dear," she said. "I have to sleep in Daddy's room." A long silence was broken at last by his shaky little voice: "The big sissy." _________________________________________________ It was that time, during the Sunday morning service, for the children's sermon. All the children were invited to come forward. One little girl was wearing a particularly pretty dress and, as she sat down, the pastor leaned over and said, "That is a very pretty dress. Is it your Easter Dress?" The little girl replied, directly into the pastor's clip~on microphone, "Yes, and my Mom says it's a b*tch to iron." _______________________________ A little boy was doing his math homework. He said to himself, "Two plus five, that son of a b*tch is seven. Three plus six, that son of a b*tch is nine...." His mother heard what he was saying and gasped, "What are you doing?!" The little boy answered, "I'm doing my math homework, Mom." "And this is how your teacher taught you to do it?" the mother asked. "Yes," he answered. Infuriated, the mother asked the teacher the next day, "What are you teaching my son in math?" The teacher replied, "Right now, we are learning addition." The mother asked, "And are you teaching them to say, 'Two plus two, that son of a b*tch is four'?!?" After the teacher stopped laughing, she answered, "What I taught them was, ŒTwo plus two, THE SUM OF WHICH, is four." _________________________________________________ One day a teacher read the story "Chicken Little" to her class. She came to the part of the story where Chicken Little tried to warn the farmer. She read, ".... and so Chicken Little went up to the farmer and said, 'The sky is falling, the sky is falling!'" The teacher paused, then asked the class, "And what do you think that farmer said?" One little girl raised her hand and said, "I think he said: 'Holy Sh*t! A talking chicken!'" _____________________________________________________________ A Study of Women Found A study in Wisconsin showed that the kind of male face a woman finds attractive can differ depending on where a woman is in her menstrual cycle. For instance: If she is ovulating, she is attracted to men with rugged and masculine features; and if she is menstruating, she is more prone to be attracted to a man with scissors shoved in his temple and a bat jammed up his ass.
World's Funniest Joke By Corey Ullman LONDON (Reuters) ~ After a year of painstaking scientific research, the world's funniest joke was revealed on Thursday. In a project described as the largest~ever scientific study into humor, the British Association for the Advancement of Science ( news ~ web sites) asked Internet users around the world to submit their favorite jokes and rate the funniness of other people's offerings. More than 40,000 jokes from 70 countries and two million critiques later, this is it: "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 man pulls out his phone and calls emergency services. He gasps to the operator: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator, in a calm, soothing voice replies: "Take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead." Silence, then a shot is heard. Back on the phone, the hunter says, "Ok, now what?" Researchers found significant differences between nations in the types of jokes they found funny. People from the UK, the Republic of Ireland, Australia and New Zealand Preferred gags involving word play, such as: PATIENT: "Doctor, I've got a strawberry stuck up my bum." DOCTOR: "I've got some cream for that." Americans and Canadians favored jokes where people were made to look stupid. TEXAN: "Where are you from?" HARVARD GRAD: "Harvard ~~ where we do not end our sentences with prepositions." TEXAN: "OK ~~ where are you from, asshole?" Meanwhile, many Europeans liked gags that were surreal or made light of Serious subjects such as illness, death and marriage: A patient says, "Doctor, last night I made a Freudian slip, I was having dinner with my mother~in~law and wanted to say: 'Could you please pass the butter?' "But instead I said: 'You silly cow, you have completely ruined my life."' Marriage~mocking also featured in the top American joke: "A man and a friend are playing golf one day. One of the guys is about to chip onto the green when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the course. "He stops in mid~swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes, and bows down in prayer. His friend says: 'Wow that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You are truly a kind man.' "The man then replies: 'Yeah, well, we were married 35 years."' Death earned big laughs in Scotland: "I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather. Not screaming in terror like his passengers." And animals figured prominently. Take the number one joke in England: "Two weasels are sitting on a bar stool. One starts to insult the other one. He screams, 'I slept with your mother!' "The bar gets quiet as everyone listens to see what the other weasel will do. "The first again yells, 'I SLEPT WITH YOUR MOTHER!' "The other says: 'Go home dad, you're drunk."' The survey revealed other fun facts: ~~ Of the countries rating the highest number of jokes, Germans, perhaps surprisingly, laughed the most. Canadians laughed least. ~~ If you want to tell a funny animal joke, make it a duck. ~~ The most frequently submitted joke, at 300 times, was: "What's brown and sticky? A stick." Researchers said no one ever found it funny.   Birthdays of Unimportant People * Jun.7th...

This was one of those perfect New England days in late summer,

and human shoulders.

Press close, bare-bosomed Night! Press close, magnetic, nourishing Night!
Night of south winds! Night of the large, few stars!
Still, nodding Night! Mad, naked, Summer Night!
~ Walt Whitman
Being a child at home alone in the summer is a high-risk occupation.
If you call your mother at work thirteen times an hour, she can hurt you.

Do what we can, summer will have its flies.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Heat, ma'am! it was so dreadful here,
that I found there was nothing left for it but to take off my flesh
and sit in my bones.
~ Sydney Smith (Lady Holland's Memoir)
Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day,
listening to the murmur of water,
or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.
~ John Lubbock
No price is set on the lavish summer;
June may be had by the poorest comer.

Love is to the heart what the summer is to the farmer's year
- it brings to harvest all the loveliest flowers of the soul.

Then followed that beautiful season... Summer....
Filled was the air with a dreamy and magical light; and the landscape
Lay as if new created in all the freshness of childhood.
~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Summer is the time when one sheds one's tensions with one's clothes,
and the right kind of day is jeweled balm for the battered spirit.
A few of those days and you can become drunk with the belief that,
all's right with the world.
~ Ada Louise Huxtable
This was one of those perfect New England days in late summer,
where the spirit of autumn takes a first stealing flight, like a spy,
through the ripening country-side,
and, with feigned sympathy for those who droop with August heat,
puts her cool cloak of bracing air about leaf, and flower,
and human shoulders.
~ Sarah Orne Jewett
