Re: The Joke Thread

Delmarrey's reminded me of this one:

Guy goes to see his doctor. After an examination, the Doc says "Well, I have some really bad news. You only have six months to live."
"Six months!" yells the guy. "There must be something we can do. Doc I'm desperate I'll do ANYTHING."
"Well," says Doc, "there is one thing..."
"Anything. anything."
The doctors says "you find this single mother whose on welfare, and has 6 or more children. You get married, then you all move into a mosquito infested swamp."
"That sounds strange," says the guy, "will it really make me live longer than 6 months?"
"Well, no," says the doc. "but It'll sure seem like it."

Re: The Joke Thread

  • You might be a boat bum if you consider 5200 a long term investment.
  • If you know more than 3 ways to fix SPAM, you might be a boat bum.
  • If your best pair of shoes were made by Sperry... you just might be a boat bum.
  • You might be a boat bum if every piece of clothing you own has a stain on it.
  • If you understand that a bulkhead is not a politician, you might be a boat bum.
(With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy)


Anyone add to the list?

Re: The Joke Thread


A woman came home, screeching her car into the driveway, and ran into the house.
She slammed the door and shouted at the top of her lungs, 'Honey, pack your bags. I won the lottery!'
The husband said, 'Oh my God! What should I pack, beach stuff or mountain stuff?'
'Doesn't matter,' she said. 'Just get out.'

Marriage is a relationship in which one person is always right, and the other is a husband.

A Polish immigrant went to the DMV to apply for a driver's license.
First, of course, he had to take an eye sight test.
The optician showed him a card with the letters

'C Z W I X N O S T A C Z.'
'Can you read this?' the optician asked.
'Read it?' the Polish guy replied, 'I know the guy.'


******************************************


Mother Superior called all the nuns together and said to them, 'I must tell you all something. We have a case of gonorrhea in the convent.'
'Thank God,' said an elderly nun at the back. 'I'm so tired of chardonay.'

A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband.

Suddenly, her husband burst into the kitchen.
'Careful,' he said, 'CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my gosh! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my gosh! WHERE are we going to get MOR E BUTTER? They're going to STICK! Careful. CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! H urry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the! salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!'
The wife stared at him.
'What in the world is wrong with you? You think I don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?'
The husband calmly replied, 'I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm driving.'

Re: The Joke Thread

Pants VS Panties.....

Mike was going to be married to Karen
So his Father sat him down for a little chat.

He said, 'Mike, let me tell you something.
On my wedding night in our honeymoon suite, I took off my pants, handed them to your Mother, and said, 'Here, try these on.''

She did and said, 'These are too big.
I can't wear them.'

I replied, 'Exactly.. I wear the pants in
This family and I always will.'

Ever since that night, we have
Never had any problems.

'Hmmm,' said Mike. He thought that might be a good thing to try.

So....On his honeymoon, Mike took off his pants and said to Karen, 'Here, try these on..!


She tried them on and said, 'These are too large. They don't fit me.'

Mike said, 'Exactly. I wear the pants in this family and I always will.
I don't want you to ever forget that.'

Then Karen took off her panties and handed them to Mike. She said, 'Here, you try on mine !


Mike did and said,
'I can't get into your panties.'

Karen said, 'Exactly.
And if you don't change your smart-ass attitude, you never will.'

My Dearest deliberatelly decided against learning too much about sailing.
She told me, that She don't want to make me feel on the boat like when driving the car in Her company....

Re: The Joke Thread

A man walks out to the street and immediately catches a taxi, just about to go by.

He gets into the taxi, and the cabbie says, "What perfect timing. You're just like Frank."

Passenger: "Who?"

Cabbie: "Frank Feldman... he did everything right, every time. Like my coming along just when you needed a cab, things happened like that to Frank Feldman every single time."

Passenger: "Everybody has some problems."

Cabbie: "Not Frank Feldman. He was a terrific athlete. He could have won the
Grand-Slam at tennis. He could golf with the pros. He sang like Pavarotti,
and danced like Astaire. And you should have heard him play the piano!"

Passenger: "Sounds like he was really special."

Cabbie: "Oh hell there's more. He remembered everybody's birthday. He knew
all about wine, which foods to order, and which fork to eat it with. And
whatever brokE, he could fix it -- Frank Feldman, he could do everything right."

Passenger: "Wow, what a guy!"

Cabbie: "PLUS -- Frank really knew how to treat a woman and make her feel
special. He would never argue back, even if she was in the wrong; and his
clothing was always immaculate, shoes highly polished too. He was the perfect man! He NEVER made a mistake! No one could ever measure up to Frank Feldman!"

Passenger: "What an amazing fellow. How did you meet him?"

Cabbie: "Well... I never actually met Frank. He died, and I married his wife."
