They simply continue to fly.......

Reminds me of something that happened at a grocery store I worked at in college...

Our manager was being checked out and she purchased a broom. We're all sitting there talking randomly and the bagger got to the broom and with a perfectly straight face asked, "Do you want this in the cart or are you going to ride it home?"

I've never seen the manager more stunned!

A little girl asked her mother: "How did the human race appear?" The mother answered: "God made Adam and Eve and they had children, and so was all mankind made.." Two days later the girl asked her father the same question.. The father answered: "Many years ago there were monkeys from which the human race evolved."

The confused girl returned to her mother and said: "Mom, how is it possible that you told me the human race was created by God and Dad said they developed from monkeys?" The mother answered: "Well, dear, it is very simple. I told you about my side of the family and your father told you about his."

After further review by the Webmaster and the Editor we've removed a few of the jokes.

Just a reminder that this is a family friendly site, which may have children looking at it, etc. We also need to make sure things stay clean so filters used by many public places such as schools and library's don't flag the site and block access to it.

Please consider the potential audience before posting...

Thanks,

The Webmaster & Editor

Darn it Ken! What did you say to get Kerry prompted to action? Must have been one of those southern Californy porny stories.
It couldn't have been Catfish (wink, wink). On the other hand...... IT MUST HAVE BEEN DEB!!!

I have some very sad news out of Duluth , Minnesota this morning to share with everyone. This will bring about change in North & South Dakota , Minnesota , Wisconsin , Iowa and parts of Canada . This will bring far reaching ramifications that will strike at the very core of our Midwest Heritage and Souls.

I must report the tragic news that OLE was SHOT. He was up by the Canadian border on his 4 Wheeler cutting some trees when some rangers looking for Terrorists spotted him. According to the news reports, the Rangers shouted to him over a loudspeaker, “Who are you and what are you doing?”

OLE shouted back, “OLE…..BIN LOGGIN!”

OLE is survived by his wife LENA and good friend SVEN.

Well of course it was me! That's the story of my life. Just ask my husband.

Catfish, now "Sweet home Chicago" is running through my head. Guess that's not bad.

Deb, why Sweet Home Chicago? That line comes from "I Don't Know" Blues Brothers

It actually is: "What did I say to make you mad, this time."

How bout it Kerry? was it me? and how many others? we're all sick you know!

If it looks like a fish, walks like a fish, talks like a fish, and smells like a fish it can only be a Catfish :lol: That's my vote !!! A gentleman known to reinvent and stretch the envelope.

Jeff, Southern California is a different world and an entirely different state. Bad, unmentionable things happen down there whereas in Northern California we just have our beloved Pelosi. :roll: She's like the EverReady bunny...she just won't quit !!!

She's my joke for the day....

Yes kmartell, I know you are all sick! It's all relevant. Why "Sweet Home Chicago"? A band I go to see now and then does a Blues Brothers set, "Sweet Home Chicago" is one of the tunes they do and do well. For a cover band.

Ken,
The Pelosi connection tips the scales in favor of So Cal.

Deb,

What's up with your post ?? Am I taking it too seriously :?: I don't see the usual ~eye roll, head shake~ thingy...

And Jeff, after working the spreadsheet I agree with your analysis... 8)

I've never understood why women love cats.

Cats are independent, they don't listen, they don't come in when you call, they like to stay out all night, and when they're home they like to be left alone and sleep.

In other words, every quality that women hate in a man, they love in a cat.

Catfish,
Audacity can be admired. So can folks who die an early death.

You'll be in the Hall of Fame if Deb or any other woman who reads the Message Board ever gets ahold of you!

Tilt?

Stimulus package

It is a slow day in the small Wisconsin town of Tomahawk and
streets are deserted. Times are tough, everybody is in debt, and
everybody is living on credit.

A tourist visiting the area drives through town, stops at the motel, and
lays a $100 bill on the desk saying he wants to inspect the rooms
upstairs to pick one for the night.

As soon as he walks upstairs, the motel owner grabs the bill and runs
next door to pay his debt to the butcher.

The butcher takes the $100 and runs down the street to retire his debt
to the pig farmer.

The pig farmer takes the $100 and heads off to pay his bill to his
supplier, the Co-op.

The guy at the Co-op takes the $100 and runs to pay his debt to the
local prostitute, :shock: who has also been facing hard times and has had to
offer her "services" on credit. :roll:

The hooker rushes to the hotel and pays off her room bill with the hotel
owner.

The hotel proprietor then places the $100 back on the counter so the traveler will not suspect anything.

At that moment the traveler comes down the stairs, states that the rooms are not satisfactory, picks up the $100 bill and leaves.

No one produced anything. No one earned anything... However, the whole
town is now out of debt and now looks to the future with a lot more
optimism.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how a "stimulus package" works. :wink:
