Most comedians base their jokes on tragedy. And that situation is tragic. A woman rules the day with feelings, a man rules the day with goals. When feelings under mind the goals then the day is lost, why bother. What a tragedy!

Re: The Joke Thread

'MARIJUANA FILLED FIREWOOD IN NEWFOUNDLAND'


'Hello, is this the Police Office?'

'Yes. What can I do for you?'

'I'm calling to report 'bout my neighbor Jack Murphy...He's hidin'
marijuana inside his firewood! Don't quite know how he gets it inside
them logs, but he's hidin' it there..'

'Thank you very much for the call, sir.'

The next day, twelve St Johns Police Officers descend on Jack's house. They
search the shed where the firewood is kept.

Using axes, they bust open every piece of wood, but find no marijuana.
They sneer at Jack and leave.

Shortly, the phone rings at Jack's house.

'Hey, Jack! This here's Floyd....Did the Police come?'

'Yeah!'

'Did they chop your firewood?'

'Yep!'

'Happy Birthday, buddy!'

Well, if you read between the lines it is a biting attack on the oppression of women within male centric societies throughout the ages.

I am surprised that your inner dolphin didn't alert you. Mine cried

The fact that they are putting two extreme stereotypes together? In your teens / early 20s, did you never have a conversation that approximated 1209? Or know a buddy who did?

I had a girlfriend when I was about 18 who systematically got rid of my friends so I could spend more time with her. She even turned off my computer once because I was spending too much time (in her opinion) on my university tutorial and she promptly wiped out a morning's work.

I've been there, done that and had the girlfriend who did not recognise what was important to me. I am sure the ladies on here have seen the other side of the coin too with man whose were insensitive to their needs.

1209 resonates with my past - that is what makes it funny. To me at least.....

Indeed. I have heard it said that women are defined by their relationships and men by their work/hobbies. 1209 is a case in point IMO.

Re: The Joke Thread

Still wasn't that funny. The reply was from a guy telling the gal where she should shut up, in reality that guy probably wouldn't open his mouth to his gal. But he has the courage to type it anonymously to someone else. Not that funny. Pathetic really. The truth lies somewhere in the middle. "It's his Jeep, let him make his own mistakes. Saving him from making them will only cost you. And never say 'I told you so.' Besides, you could be wrong. As for the money, to a guy these things have worth far beyond the actual value. Much like your Prada sling-backs."

Re: The Joke Thread

She reminds a lot of my buddy's 5th ex wife, she had other fine qualities as well. After her he gave up on marriage and started buying a new house and car for a woman he hated every five years. It seems to be working well for him and he claims it's cheaper too.

Re: The Joke Thread

A Wish......



I met a fairy today that said she would grant me one wish. "I want to
live forever," I said.

"Sorry," said the fairy, "I'm not allowed to grant wishes like that!"

"Fine," I said, "then I want to die after Congress gets their heads out
of their asses!"

"You crafty bastard," said the fairy.

So the kid thought...well...you get the drift... I hope this clarifies it a little...

Sean to Paddy: "Close your curtains the next time you're having sex with your wife. The whole street was watching and laughing at you yesterday."

Paddy: "Well the joke's on them the stupid buggers, because I wasn't even at home yesterday."
