    Before you answer I've got a good joke.

    A school is finishing exams and the teacher supervising tells the the students to stop. One student finishing up after this is rejected by the supervisor. The student draws himself up to his full height and says "Do you know who I am?"
    The supervisor replies "No" The student says "Good" and puts his test in the middle of the pile.

    I got those from my youth pastor. This one is a little more esoteric, but it made me groan and roll my eyes...

    Bob*, a coworker at my local Wal-Mart, approaches another coworker and says, tongue in cheek, "Would toenail clippers be the appropriate tool to take care of a dangling participle?" The coworker thinks for a moment, then says in dead earnest, "Oh, I guess I always just use scissors."

    *names have been changed to protect the guilty

    Tom—I confess I'd prefer riches to love. A kiss, for instance, may be sweet, but it isn't worth anything.
    Dick—Well, it's always worth its face value.

    "I've promised to go in to supper with someone else, Mr. Blanque; but I'll intro*duce you to a very handsome and clever girl."

    "But I don't want a handsome and clever girl; I want you."

    "Wasn't it odd that our cat would not take to our visitor, but put his back up at her?"
    “Not at all strange."
    "Why not?"
    "Because the visitor had a mouse-colored suit and had a lot of rats in her hair."
  7. mr_scrub New Member

    *Groan* Evil puns.
  8. Maljonic Administrator

    I'm not even totally sure what it means, I'm guessing that "rats" was some kind of hair style thing in 1912, where I got this joke from.

    I understood it to be like balls of knots in her hair or something like that...

    An elderly couple go to a sex therapist’s office. The doctor asks, “What can I do for you?”
    The man says, “Will you watch us have sexual intercourse?”
    The doctor raises both eyebrows, but he is so amazed that such an elderly couple is asking for sexual advice that he agrees.
    When the couple finish, the doctor says, “There’s absolutely nothing wrong with the way you have intercourse.” He thanks them for coming (!), he wishes them good luck, he charges them £50 and he says goodbye.
    The next week, however, the couple return and asks the sex therapist to watch again. The sex therapist is a bit puzzled, but agrees.
    This happens several weeks in a row. The couple make an appointment, have intercourse with no problems, pay the doctor, then leave.
    Finally, after 5 or 6 weeks of this routine, the doctor says, “I’m sorry, but I have to ask. Just what are you trying to find out?”
    The old man says, “We’re not trying to find out anything. She’s married and we can’t go to her house. I’m married and we can’t go to my house.
    “The Holiday Inn charges £98. The Hilton charges £139. We do it here for £50, and I get £43 back from BUPA.”

    "I slept with three cheerleaders last night," said the old man in the confession booth.
    "How long has it been since your last confession?" asked the priest.
    "Confession? I'm Jewish," the man replied.
    So the priest asked, "Why are you telling me this?" and the old man said:

    The best way to find inner peace is to finish what you started. I looked around this morning to see what I had started, so I finished the vodka, the baileys some red wine and the valium and you have no idea how peaceful I am now.

    The Ferrari F1 team manager decided to employ some Scouse pit crew due to their renowned skill in removing car wheels quickly. At the first practice session, not only did they change all 4 wheels in 6 seconds, but, within 12 seconds, they had re-sprayed, re-badged and sold it to the McLaren team for 8 cans of Stella and a bag of weed.

    One my brother-in-law sent me.

    An English doctor is being shown around a Scottish hospital. At the end of his visit, he is shown into a ward with a number of patients who show no obvious signs of injury. He goes to examine the first patient he sees, and the man proclaims:

    "Fair fa' yer honest, sonsie face,
    Great chieftain o' the puddin' race!"

    The English doctor, somewhat taken aback, goes to the next patient, and immediately the patient launches into:

    "Some hae meat and canna eat,
    And some wad eat that want it."

    This continues with the next patient:

    "Wee sleekit cow'rin tim'rous beastie,
    O what a panic's in thy breastie!"

    "Well," the English doctor mutters to his Scottish colleague, "I see you saved the psychiatric ward for the last."

    "Oh no," the Scottish doctor corrected him, "this is the serious Burns unit."

    One day a man walks into a pet shop and asks for a really unusual pet.
    "You're in luck, sir", says the owner, and hands him a tortoise.
    "What's so special about this?" asks the man doubtfully.
    "Ullo", says the tortoise. "Oh, I see! It can talk!" Exclaims the man excitedly.
    "Yes", says the owner, "and it can also run errands for you."
    "Okay, I'll take it." He pays the owner and leaves with the tortoise.
    That evening the man is watching T.V. and says to his new pet...
    "Okay, Sonny Jim, make yerself useful and get me a paper from the shop."
    He gives the tortoise the money and it sets off.
    6 weeks later, and still no sign of the tortoise.
    In frustration, the man goes to the front door to have a look and sees the tortoise halfway up the garden path.
    And the tortoise says- "Well, if you're gonna be like that, I won't go!

    Some race horses staying in a stable. One of them starts to boast about his track record. "In the last 15 races, I've won 8 of them!" Another horse breaks in, "Well in the last 27 races, I've won 19!!" "Oh that's good, but in the last 36 races, I've won 28!", says another, flicking his tail. At this point, they notice that a greyhound dog has been sitting there listening. "I don't mean to boast," says the greyhound, "but in my last 90 races, I've won 88 of them!" The horses are clearly amazed. "Wow!" says one, after a hushed silence. "A talking dog."

    A man dies and goes to hell. He meets a demon who says- 'Alright, my dear morsel, you have three choices of how you want to spend eternity here'.
    The demon then shows the man three doors. He opens the first door and shows him millions of people standing on their heads on a wooden floor.
    'Hmmm', says the man, 'I don't like the look of that at all!! What about door No.2?'
    The demon opens the second door and shows the man millions of people standing on their heads on a stone floor. 'No, no, no, that's not for me at all!! Show me the third door.'
    The demon then opens the third door and the man sees millions of people standing waist deep in cow shit, drinking coffee and smoking fags.
    'Well, aside form the smell; this definitely looks like the best of the three options!' the man concludes.
    'Are you sure?', asks the demon. 'You can't change you're mind you know!'
    'Yep, this ones for me.'
    He takes his coffee and cigarettes and wades into the shit to join the others, and begins to smoke and drink coffee.
    After about 10 minutes another demon pops his head around the door and shouts- 'ALRIGHT YOU 'ORRIBLE LOT!! FAG BREAKS OVER!! GET BACK ON YER 'EADS!!!

    The 5 questions most feared by men are:

    1. What are you thinking about?
    2. Do you love me?
    3. Do I look fat?
    4. Do you think she is prettier than me?
    5. What would you do if I died?

    What makes these questions so difficult is that every one is guaranteed to explode into a major argument if the man answers incorrectly (i.e., tells the truth). Therefore, as a public service, each question is analysed below, along with possible responses.

    Question # 1: What are you thinking about?

    The proper answer to this, of course, is:

    “I’m sorry if I’ve been pensive, dear. I was just reflecting on what a warm, wonderful, thoughtful, caring, intelligent woman you are, and how lucky I am to have met you.”

    This response obviously bears no resemblance to the true answer, which most likely is one of the following:

    a. Rugby.
    b. Football.
    c. How fat you are.
    d. How much prettier she is than you.
    e. How I would spend the insurance money if you died.

    Question # 2: Do you love me?

    The proper response is: “YES!” or, if you feel a more detailed answer is in order, “Yes, dear.”

    Inappropriate responses include:

    a. Oh Yeah, shit-loads.
    b. Would it make you feel better if I said yes?
    c. That depends on what you mean by love.
    d. Does it matter?
    e. Who, me?

    Question # 3: Do I look fat?

    The correct answer is an emphatic: “Of course not!”

    Among the incorrect answers are:

    a. Compared to what?
    b. I wouldn’t call you fat, but you’re not exactly thin.
    c. A little extra weight looks good on you.
    d. I’ve seen fatter.
    e. Could you repeat the question? I was just thinking about how I would spend the insurance money if you died.

    Question # 4: Do you think she’s prettier than me?

    Once again, the proper response is an emphatic: “Of course not!”
    Incorrect responses include:

    a. Yes, but you have a better personality
    b. Not prettier, but definitely thinner
    c. Not as pretty as you when you were her age
    d. Define pretty ?
    e. Could you repeat the question? I was just thinking about how I would spend the insurance money if you died.

    Question # 5: What would you do if I died?

    A definite no-win question. (The real answer, of course, is “Buy a Corvette and a Boat”).

    No matter how you answer this, be prepared for at least an hour of follow-up questions, usually along these lines:

    WOMAN: Would you get married again?
    MAN: Definitely not!
    WOMAN: Why not, don’t you like being married?
    MAN: Of course I do.
    WOMAN: Then why wouldn’t you remarry?
    MAN: Okay, I’d get married again.
    WOMAN: You would? (with a hurtful look on her face)
    MAN: ( makes audible groan )
    WOMAN: Would you sleep with her in our bed?
    MAN: Where else would we sleep?
    WOMAN: Would you put away my pictures, and replace them with pictures of her?
    MAN: That would seem like the proper thing to do.
    WOMAN: And would you let her use my golf clubs?
    MAN: She can’t use them; she’s left-handed.
    WOMAN: - - - silence - - -
    MAN: Oh bugger.

    A lady about seven months pregnant got on a bus. She noticed the man opposite her was smiling at her. She immediately moved to another seat. This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again. The man seemed more amused. When on the fourth move, the man burst out laughing.

    She complained to the driver and had the man arrested. The casecame up in court. The judge asked the man what he had to say for himself.
    The man replied, “Well your Honor, it was like this, When the lady got on the bus, I couldn’t help but notice her condition. She sat under a sign that said, “The Double Mint Twins are coming” and I had to smile. Then she moved and sat under a sign that said, “Slogan’s liniment will reduce the swelling” and I had to grin. Then she placed herself under a sign that said, “William’s Big Stick Did the Trick” and I could hardly control myself.
    BUT….when she moved the fourth time and sat under a sign that said, “Goodyear Rubber could have prevented this accident” I laughed out loud.

    “Case Dismissed” said the Judge.

    A middle-aged man comes home from work to find his wife admiring herself in a full-length mirror.
    "What are you doing?" he asks.
    "I went to the doctor for my physical today," she replies, "and he told me I have the bustline of a 25-year old."
    "Really?" he sniggered. "And what did he say about your 50-year old ass?"
    "Actually, dear, your name never came up."

    A psychologist was conducting a group therapy session with four young
    mothers and their small children.

    "You all have obsessions," he observed.

    To the first mother he said, "You are obsessed with eating. You've even
    named your daughter Candy."

    He turned to the second Mom, "Your obsession is with money. Again, it
    manifests itself in your child's name, Penny."

    He turns to the third Mom. "Your obsession is alcohol. This too manifests
    itself in your child's name, Brandy"

    At this point, the fourth mother gets up, takes her little boy by the hand
    and whispers.

    "Come on, Dick, we're leaving."
