Wanna get rid of the noise, Here's the controller.


From a passenger ship, everyone can see a bearded
man on a small island, shouting and desperately
waving his hands.

"Who is that man... and why is he so upset?" a
passenger asks the ship's captain.

"I have no idea," says the captain; "but, every
year when we pass by here, he goes crazy."





A blonde and a redhead met in a bar after work for a drink and
were watching the 6 O'clock news. A man was shown threatening to
jump from the Brooklyn Bridge. The blonde bet the redhead $50
that he wouldn't jump, and the redhead replied, "I'll take that
bet!"
Anyway, sure enough, he jumped, so the blonde gave the redhead
the $50 she owed. The redhead said, "I can't take this, you're
my friend."
The blonde said, "No. A bet's a bet. You won the money."
So the redhead said, "Listen, I have to admit, I saw this on the
5 O'clock news, so I can't take your money."
The blonde replied, "Well, so did I but I never thought he'd jump again!"

was out walking with my then 4 year old daughter. She picked up something off the ground and started to put it in her mouth. I asked her not to do that.
"Why"?
"Because it's been laying outside and is dirty and probably has germs".
At this point, she looked at me with total admiration and asked, "Wow! How do you know all this stuff"?
"Uh," I was thinking quickly, everyone knows this stuff, "Um, it's on the mommy test. You have to know it, or they don't let you be a mommy".
"Oh".
We walked along in silence for 2 or 3 minutes, but she was evidently pondering this new information.
" I get it"! she beamed. "Then if you flunk, you have to be the daddy".

Note from David 1: Yup dear that pretty much be it, this one I agree with.





There are two different types of people in this world :

Subject:  An Old Guys Opinion

If I could, I'd enlist today and help my country track down those responsible for killing thousands of innocent people in New York City and Washington, D.C. But, I'm over 50 now and the Armed Forces say I'm too old
> > > to track down terrorists. You can't be older than 35 to join the military.

They've got the whole thing backwards. Instead of sending 18-year-olds off to fight, they ought to take us old guys. You shouldn't be able to join until you're at least 35. For starters:

Researchers say 18-year-olds think about sex every 10 seconds. Old guys
only think about sex a couple of times a day, leaving us more that 28,000
additional seconds per day to concentrate on the enemy.

Young guys haven't lived long enough to be cranky, and a cranky soldier
is a dangerous soldier. If we can't kill the enemy we'll complain them
into submission. "My back hurts!" "I'm hungry!" "Where's the remote control?"

An 18-year-old hasn't had a legal beer yet and you shouldn't go to war
until you're at least old enough to legally drink. An average old guy, on
the other hand, has consumed 126,000 gallons of beer by the time he's 35
and a jaunt through the desert heat with a backpack and M-60 would do
wonders for the old beer belly.

An 18-year-old doesn't like to get up before 10 a.m. Old guys get up early (to pee).

If old guys are captured we couldn't spill the beans because we'd
probably forget where we put them. In fact, name, rank, and serial
number would be a real brainteaser.

Boot camp would actually be easier for old guys. We're used to
getting screamed and yelled at and we actually like soft food. We've
also developed a deep appreciation for guns and rifles. We like them almost
better than naps. They could lighten up on the obstacle course, however.



I've been in combat and didn't see a single 20-foot wall with rope  hanging over the side , nor did I ever do any pushups after training. I can hear the Drill Sergeant now, "Get down and give me...er...one."

And the running part is kind of a waste of energy. I've never seen anyone outrun a bullet.

An 18-year-old has the whole world ahead of him. He's still learning to shave.


To actually carry on a conversation. To wear pants without the top of the butt crack showing and the boxer shorts sticking out.

To learn that a pierced tongue catches food particles.


And that a 200-watt speaker in the back seat of a Honda Accord can rupture an eardrum.

All great reasons to keep our sons at home and to learn a little
more about life before sending them off to a possible death.

Let us old guys track down those dirty, rotten cowards who attacked
our hearts on September 11.

The last thing the enemy would want to see right now is a couple of
million old farts with attitudes.

Old Couple

A little old couple walked slowly into McDonald's one cold winter. They
looked out of place amid the young families and young couples eating
there that night.

Some of the customers looked admiringly at them. You could tell what the
admirers were thinking. "Look, there is a couple who has been through a
lot together,  probably for 60 years or more!"

The little old man walked right up to the cash register, placed his
order with no hesitation and then paid for their meal. The couple took a
table near the back wall and started taking food off of the tray. There
was one hamburger, one order of French fries and one drink.

The little old man unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in
half. He placed one half in front of his wife. Then he carefully counted
out the French fries, divided them in two piles and neatly placed one
pile in front of his wife. He took a sip of the drink; his wife took a
sip and then set the cup down between them.

As the man began to eat his few bites of hamburger the crowd began to
get restless. Again you could tell what they were thinking. "That poor
old couple. All they can afford is one meal for the two of them."

As the man began to eat his French fries one young man stood and came
over to the old couple! s' table. He politely offered to buy another
meal for the old couple to eat. The old man replied that they were just
fine. They were used to sharing everything.

Then the crowd noticed that the little old lady hadn't eaten a bite. She
just sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns
sipping the drink.

Again the young man came over and begged them to let him buy them
something to eat.

This time the lady explained that no, they were used to sharing
everything together. As the little old man finished eating and was
wiping his face neatly with a napkin the young man could stand it
no longer. Again he came over to  their table and offered to buy
some food. After being politely refused  again he finally asked a
question of the little old lady.

"What is it that you are waiting for?"
She answered...
[This is great]

READ THIS ONE CAREFULLY.............

A mouse looked through a crack in the wall to see the farmer and his
wife opening a package; what food might it contain?
He was aghast to discover that it was a mouse trap!

Retreating to the farmyard, the mouse proclaimed the warning, "There is
a mouse trap in the house, there is a mouse trap in the house."

The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, "Mr. Mouse,
I can tell you this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no
consequence to me; I cannot be bothered by it."

The mouse turned to the pig and told him, "There is a mouse trap in the
house."
"I am so very sorry Mr. Mouse," sympathized the pig, "but there is
nothing I can do about it but pray; be assured that you are in my
prayers."

The mouse turned to the cow, who replied, "Like wow, Mr. Mouse, a mouse
trap; am I in grave danger, Duh?"

So the mouse returned to the house, head down and dejected to face the
farmer's mouse trap alone.

That very night a sound was heard throughout the house, like the sound
of a mouse trap catching its prey. The farmer's wife rushed to see what
was caught.

In the darkness, she did not see that it was a venomous snake whose tail
the trap had caught.
The snake bit the farmer's wife.
The farmer rushed her to the hospital.
She returned home with a fever.

Now everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup, so the
farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the soup's main ingredient.

His wife's sickness continued so that friends and neighbors came to sit
with her around the clock. To feed them, the farmer butchered the pig.

The farmer's wife did not get well, in fact, she died, and so many
people came for her funeral the farmer had the cow slaughtered to
provide meat for all of them to eat.

So the next time you hear that someone is facing a problem and think
that it does not concern you, remember that when the least of us is
threatened, we are all at risk.

And so it may be with Germany, France and Belgium one day...






Did you know research scientists are now using Lawyers
instead of laboratory animals to conduct experiments?

1) There's more of them.
2) There are things even the animals won't do.
3) You don't get attached to the lawyers.

Dog Songs

During the gulf war, three men, An Englishman, A
Scotsman and An Irishman are captures by enemy soldiers.
Their general says to them that he is feeling in a good
mood and will set them free, but only if they sing a song
which has a dog mentioned in the song.

The Englishman starts singing "You ain't nothing but a
hounddog" as sung by Elvis Presley.

"Good" says the general, and the Englishman is set free...

The Scotsman starts singing "How much is that doggy in
the window"

"Good" says the general, and the Scotsman is set free...

Then the Irishman starts singing "Strangers in the night..."

"Strangers in the night?" asks the general "Where's the
dog in that?"

"You didn't let me get that far" The Irishman says "It's
in the chorus" And starts singing the chorus "Scooby
dooby doo be dooby doo doo....."





A heart-warming story of the advances of women in
achieving equality throughout the world..........
Barbara Walters did a story on gender roles in Kuwait
several years before the Gulf War.
She noted then that women customarily walked about 10
feet behind their husbands.
She returned to Kuwait recently and observed that the
men now walked several yards behind their wives.
Ms.Walters approached one of the women and said,
"This is marvellous. Can you tell the free world just
what enabled women here to achieve this reversal of
roles?"
The Kuwaiti woman frowned and replied: "Land mines."


this one has been around for about 
15 years that I know about 
but I still love it.



A newly promoted colonel had moved into a makeshift office during the
Gulf War. He was just getting unpacked when out of the corner of his
eye, he noticed a private with a toolbox coming his way.

Wanting to seem important, he grabbed the phone: "Yes, General
Schwarzkopf.  Of course, I think that's an excellent plan." He
continued: "You've got my support on it. Thanks for checking with me.
Let's touch base again soon, Norm. Good-bye."

"And what can I do for you?" he asked the private.

"Uhhh, I'm just here to hook up your phone."

To unsubscribe from this service you must first purchase a Craft-O-Matic Adjustable Subscription Cancellation Unit.  The unit can be obtained from most hardware stores and dental clinics.  Be sure to obtain the proper permits to operate the unit from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission and the Food and Drug Administration in Washington D.C.  USA.

Be sure to carefully unpack the kit and place each component in its accompanying mesh safety bag.  Mount the Pershing DF4 mesinator on top of the perforated Gerring Mach 77 refibulator and attach them using the eight-millimeter torque fork.  Be sure that the refibulator is mounted at a 66 degree angle and properly dispersed so that it is flush with the curved section of the Pyrex thistle tube.  Place the four sections of the triangular separation gear into the posture cylinder and lock them into place using the band aid adhesive strip.  Insert the wiggling pin into the
wobbling hole, making sure that it seated correctly.  Place the D cell battery and the eleven 9 volt batteries in the power chamber.

The device should be calibrated before operation using the optional digital corkscrew accessory pack prior to operation.  Insert the digital corkscrew through the electronic combustion service chamber using caution not to touch the reinforced tungsten igniter control module and quickly turn the inverter drive to 28.6 degrees.  Turn the Craft-O-Matic Adjustable Subscription Cancellation Unit upside down and hit the bottom plate with a 48-ounce sledgehammer while shaking the unit vigorously.  Force open the door to the incineration valve compartment and set the pressure gauge to 719 psi. Close the door and seal it shut with duct tape.  The unit should now be properly calibrated and ready to use.

Before activating the Craft-O-Matic Adjustable Subscription Cancellation Unit, you must first elevate it to a height of 229 feet above sea level to ensure that the unit receives the proper oxygen level and barometric pressure.  Point the aerial to 17 degrees north by northeast to within the parameters of the Telstar GS-2 weather satellite and apply pressure to the wing shaft on the southern most section of the modular accelerator.  Using the special ratchet adapter supplied with the unit, rotate the heater core to the "on" position.

The "on" position has been obtained when the green light begins to flash, signifying that the red light is about to go off.  Once the red light is off, flip the toggle switch labeled "ON/OFF" to the "ON" position and count to 47 before logging on to the system.

Logon using your username and password and wait for the prompt.  Once prompted you must check the box with the appropriate action you wish to take and then press the pressure release button and turn off the compressor while turning the hand crank at 231 meters per minute.  Next, press control, alt, delete, caps lock, shift, number lock, escape and tab simultaneously.  Press
enter.

You will have one second to complete the procedure.  If you fail to respond in the time limit allowed, simply purchase a new Craft-O-Matic Adjustable Subscription Cancellation Unit and start from the beginning.

Please remember that this is the only way we will accept for you to unsubscribe from this service.  We have made every attempt to simplify the procedure for your convenience.  Failure to comply with the unsubscribe policy will result in immediate termination of your subscription so please follow the above directions closely.






Subject: Computer Smile


Thought you would like a little smile...
A language teacher was explaining to her class that
in French, nouns,
unlike their English counterparts, are grammatically
designated as
masculine or feminine.
For example,"House" in French, is
feminine........"La maison." "Pencil" in
French, is masculine...."le crayon."
One puzzled student asked, "What gender is a
computer?" The teacher did not
know, and the word was not in her French dictionary.
So for fun she split
the class into two groups, appropriately enough, by
gender, and asked them
to decide whether "computer" should be a masculine
or a feminine noun.

Both groups were required to give four reasons for
their recommendation.
The men's group decided that computer should
definitely be of the feminine
gender ("la computer"), because:
1. No one but their creator understands their
internal logic;
2. The native language they use to communicate with
other computers is
incomprehensible to everyone else;
3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long
term memory for possible
later review; and
4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find
yourself spending half
your paycheck on accessories for it.



The women's group, however, concluded that computers
should be masculine
("le computer") because:

1. In order to do anything with them, you have to
turn them on;
2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for
themselves;
3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but
half the time they ARE
the problem; and
4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if
you had waited a
little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

The women won.
