Re: The Joke Thread

WHY ITALIANS CAN'T BE PARAMEDICS





Vinny and Sal are out in the woods hunting when suddenly Sal grabs his chest and falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing; his eyes are rolled back in his head.

Vinny whips out his cell phone and calls 911. He gasps to the operator, 'I think Sal is dead! What should I do?'

The operator, in a calm soothing voice says, 'Just take it easy and follow my instructions. First, let's make sure he's dead. '

There is a silence. And then a gun shot is heard.

Vinny's voice comes back on the line, 'Okay... Now what?

Re: The Joke Thread

If a (con)stitution is great, why do so many think (pro)stitution is so bad?

Funny! I see prostitution on the TV, magazines and billboards everyday. It's the norm in advertising.



And where's the boat?
