Re: The Joke Thread

SCOTTISH COMPASSION



A man was sitting on a blanket at the beach.





He had no arms and no legs.




Three women, from England , Wales , and Scotland , were walking past and felt sorry for the poor man.




The English woman said "Have you ever had a hug?"




The man said "No," so she gave him a big hug and walked on.




The Welsh woman said, "Have you ever had a kiss?"




The man said, "No," so she gave him a passionate kiss and walked on.




The Scottish woman came to him and said, "'ave ye ever been f****d laddie?"




The man broke into a big smile and said, "No".




She said, "Aye, well ye will be when the tide comes in."

Re: The Joke Thread

The nun teaching Sunday School was speaking to her class one morning and she asked the question, 'When you die and go to Heaven... which part of your body goes first?"

Suzy raised her hand and said, "I think it's your hands."

"Why do you think it's your hands, Suzy?"

Suzy replied, "Because when you pray, you hold your hands together in front of you and God just takes your hands first."

"What a wonderful answer!" the nun said.

Little Johnny raised his hand and said "Sister, I think it's your feet."

The nun looked at Johnny with concern as he was a bit on the rough side. "Now Johnny, why do you think it would be your feet?"

Little Johnny said, "Well, I walked into Mommy and Daddy's bedroom the other night. Mommy had her legs straight up in the air and she was saying, 'Oh God, I'm coming'. I gotta tell you Sister, if
Dad hadn't pinned her down, we'd have lost her."

The Nun fainted.

Re: The Joke Thread

Golf course roll-over
One day I accidentally overturned my Golf cart.

Elizabeth, a very attractive and keen golfer, who lived in a villa on the golf course, where we were living at in The Vines, heard the noise and called out,

"Are you okay, what's your name?"

"It's Jack , and I'm OK thanks," I replied.

"Jack , forget your troubles. Come to my villa, rest a while, and I'll help you get the cart up later."

"That's mighty nice of you," I answered,"but I don't think my wife would like it."

"Oh, come on," Elizabeth insisted.

(She was very pretty and persuasive.)

"Well okay," I finally agreed, and added, "but my wife won't like it."

After a restorative brandy, and some driving and putting lessons, I thanked my host.

"I feel a lot better now, but I know my wife is going to be really upset."

"Don't be silly!" Elizabeth said with a smile, "She won't know anything. By the way, where is she?"

"Under the cart!" I said....

Re: The Joke Thread

A father, son and grandson went to the country club for their weekly
round of golf. Just as they reached the first tee, a beautiful young
blonde approached them.

She asked the trio if she could join them. Naturally, the guys all
agreed. "Thanks fellas. By the way, I dance in a topless bar so not
much shocks me. If you want to smoke, drink, bet, swear, tell off
color jokes or do anything that you normally do when playing a round
together, go ahead. But listen, I consider myself a decent player, so
please don 't try to coach me."

With that the guys agreed to relax and invited her to drive first.

All eyes were fastened on her shapely behind as she bent to place her
ball on the tee. She then took her driver and hit the ball 270 yards
down the middle, right in front of the green.

The father 's mouth was agape. "That was beautiful," he said.

The blonde put her driver away and said, "I really didn't get into it,
and I faded it a little."

After the three guys hit their drives and their second shots, the
blonde took out a wedge and lofted the ball within five feet of the
hole.

The son said, "Damn, lady, you played that perfectly."

The blonde frowned and said, "It was a little weak since I 've left a
tricky little putt." She then sunk the five-footer for a birdie.


Having the honours, her drive landed nearly 300 yards away, smack in
the middle of the fairway.

For the rest of the round the statuesque blonde continued to amaze the
guys, quietly and methodically shooting for par or less on every hole.

When they arrived at the 18th green, the blonde was three under par,
and had a nasty 12-foot putt for a par.

She turned to the three guys and said, "I really want to thank you all
for not acting like a bunch of chauvinists and telling me what club to
use or how to play a shot, but I need this putt for a 69 and I 'd
really like to break 70 on this course. If any one of you can tell me
how to make par on this hole I 'll take him back to my apartment, pour
some 35-year-old Scotch, fix him a steak dinner and then show him a
good time the rest of the night."

The yuppie son jumped at the thought! He strolled across the green,
carefully eyeing the line of the putt and finally said, "Honey, aim
about 6 inches to the right of the hole and hit it firm. It will get over that little hump and break right into the cup."

The father knelt down and sighted the putt using his putter as a
plumb. "Don 't listen to the kid, darlin ', you want to hit it softly
10 inches to the right and let it run left down that little hogback,
so it falls into the cup."


The gray-haired grandfather walked over to the blonde 's ball, picked
it up and handed it to her and said, "That 's a GIMME sweetheart."

The blonde smiled and said, "Your car or mine?"

Two hours into my first day of work as a WalMart greeter, an ugly woman came in with her two kids. Hearing her swear at them, I said, "Good morning, welcome to WalMart. Nice kids, are they twins?" The mom answered, "Hell no, they ain't twins. The oldest one's 9, and the other one's 7. Why would you think they're twins? Are you blind or stupid?" I replied, "I'm not blind or stupid. I just couldn't believe someone slept with you twice. Have a good day, and thank you for shopping at WalMart." My supervisor said I probably wasn't cut out for this line of work.

Re: The Joke Thread

Why is it after pushing "1" I still can't understand the person on the other end. And I thought the drive thru's were bad. It's a good thing they have numbers.

One way to get a cat to take a pill is to put it in a bowl of tuna fish. Worked every time. We called it "Clavamox Surprise."

Re: The Joke Thread

The pill thing is true, but if you have to administer several over a couple of weeks like we recently had to, here's a tip which worked (at least for us).

It takes two people. With the cat upside down on your lap, firmly hold all four paws. The other person opens the jaws and sticks the pill down and clamps the mouth shut. Stroking the throat makes them swallow. Immediately after this, let the cat go and give them several of their favorite kitty treats.

After a couple of days of this, they don't fight you (much).
