Joke of the Week

At a Senior Citizen's luncheon, an elderly gentleman and an elderly lady struck up a conversation and discovered that they both loved to fish. Since both of them were widowed, they decided to go fishing together the next day.

The gentleman picked the lady up, and they headed to the river to his fishing boat and started out on their adventure. They were riding down the river when there was a fork in the river, and the gentleman asked the lady, "Do you want to go up or down?"

All of a sudden the lady stripped off her shirt and pants and made mad passionate love to the man right there in the boat!

When they finished, the man couldn't believe what had just happened, but he had just experienced the best sex that he'd had in years.

They fished for a while and continued on down the river, when soon they came upon another fork in the river. He again asked the lady, "Up or down?"

There she went again, stripped off her clothes, and made wild passionate love to him again. This really impressed the elderly gentleman, so he asked her to go fishing again the next day.

She said yes and there they were the next day, riding in the boat when they came upon the fork in river, and the elderly gentleman asked, "Up or down?"

The woman replied, "Down."

A little puzzled and disappointed, the gentleman guided the boat down the river when he came upon another fork in the river and he asked the lady, "Up or down?"

She replied, "Up."

This really confused the gentleman so he asked, "What's the deal? Yesterday, every time I asked you if you wanted to go up or down you made mad passionate love to me. Now today, nothing!"

She replied, "Well, yesterday I wasn't wearing my hearing aid and I thought the choices were... 'fuck or drown'".

Joke of the Week

On my first day working at the gas station, I watched a senior co-worker measure the level of gasoline in the underground tanks by lowering a giant measuring stick down into them.

"What would happen if I threw a lit match into the hole?" I joked.

"It would go out," he replied very matter-of-factly.

"Really?" I asked, surprised to hear that. "Is there a lack of oxygen down there or some safety device that would extinguish it before the fumes ignited?"

"No," my co-worker continued. "The force from the explosion would blow out the match."

Murphy calls to see his mate Paddy who has a broken leg. Paddy said "Me feet are freezing, will you nip upstairs and get my slippers for me?"

"No bother", said Murphy and goes upstairs. There he finds Paddy's stunning twin 19 year old daughters sitting on the bed.

"Hello girls", he said smiling, "Your Dad sent me up here to shag the pair of ye!"

"Feck off ya liar!" they replied.

"I'll prove it!" says Murphy, so he shouts down the stairs "Both of them, Paddy?"

"Of course! What's the use of fucking one?"

50 Cents Value Name

50 Cent has been asked to change his name to 79 Cent by a US fast food chain. The 'In Da Club' rapper was challenged by Taco Bell to consider calling himself 79, 89 or 99 Cent to promote the restaurant's new value menu. Taco Bell have promised to donate $10,174 to a charity of the rapper's choice if he also agrees to stop at one of their outlets and rap his order at the drive-thru.
The eatery will also treat all the customers at the star's chosen restaurant to free meals. Taco Bell President and CEO Greg Creed said in a letter to the singer: "We know that you adopted the name 50 Cent years ago as a metaphor for change. We at Taco Bell are also huge advocates for change. We encourage you to 'Think Outside the Bun' and hope you accept our offer."

50 - real name Curtis Jackson - previously showed his love for fast food during a tour of the UK last year. The hip-hop star reportedly gave a rider to each British concert venue he visited, requesting a KFC chicken bucket served to him on fine china.

Gimme Five

With Tiger's most recent victory at the U.S. Open, all the sports talk shows were focused on the race to catch Jack's 18 majors or the fact he gutted through one of his most memorable wins while fighting an injured knee. Leave it to our own Rick Ball courtesy of Team 1040 to point out the one thing that Tiger has been unable to conquer in his storied career, his inability to deliver a proper high five with his caddie. It starts out with the right motion but near the middle it really looks as if they are going to miss which is followed a weird clutch and grab at the end. I never really thought about this until I watched some old footage of the fiver. I think the picture just about speaks for itself. Next time maybe they should stick to something less fancy like a fist pump a la Howie Mandel.

I thought that only Texas oilmen were the only things on earth that had oil coming out of their asses.

The Bikini Effect

Why do men have trouble sticking to diets and staying within budgets? Belgian researchers have discovered what is called the Bikini Effect.

The Bikini Effect Makes Men Impulsive

Joke of the Week

A father walks into a bookstore with his young son. The boy is holding a nickel. After a few minutes in the store, the boy starts choking, going blue in the face. The father realizes the boy has swallowed the nickel and starts panicking, shouting for help.

A well dressed, attractive and serious-looking woman in a blue business suit is sitting at a coffee bar reading a newspaper and sipping a cup of coffee. At the sound of the commotion, she looks up, puts her coffee cup down, neatly folds the newspaper and places it on the counter, gets up from her seat and makes her way, unhurried, across the book store.

Reaching the boy, the woman carefully drops his pants; takes hold of the boy's testicles and starts to squeeze and twist, gently at first and then ever so firmly. After a few seconds the boy convulses violently and coughs up the nickel, which the woman deftly catches in her free hand. Releasing the boy's testicles, the woman hands the nickel to the father and walks back to her seat in the coffee bar without saying a word.

As soon as he is sure that his son has suffered no ill effects, the father rushes over to the woman and starts thanking her saying, "I've never seen anybody do anything like that before, it was fantastic. Are you a doctor?" "No," the woman replied. "Divorce lawyer."

Baby-proofing your computer

When your kids start to get interested in playing with your computer, most likely the first things they know how to do are to delete your files, renaming things, and moving your most important files into the most obscure places. Try installing Baby Smash.

"As babies smash on the keyboard, colored shapes, letters and numbers appear on the screen. Baby Smash will lock out the Windows Key, as well as Ctrl-Esc and Alt-Tab so your baby can't get out of the application. Pressing ALT-F4 will exit the application and Shift-Ctrl-Alt-O brings up the options dialog."

Hopefully, junior will not learn to press ALT-F4 very quickly.

Getting Drunk on Bar-B-Q sauce

A store in Britain refuses to sell barbecue sauce that contained a small amount of alcohol to a 25 year old customer because she can't prove her age. They even refused to sell it to her 27 year old brother in law who could prove his age because they believed he would just give the bottle to her:

Tesco refuses to sell BBQ sauce to woman without ID

I am guessing that you will have to down a couple of Costco sized bottles of this stuff before you can get a buzz off of it. I love barbecue sauce, but I don't know anyone who loves it that much to down bulk sized bottles of it.

Joke of the Week

Yesterday I answered a knock on the door, only to be confronted by a guy carrying a vacuum cleaner.

"Good morning," said the guy. "If I could take a couple of minutes of your time, I would like to demonstrate the very latest in high-powered vacuum cleaners."

"Go away!" I said. "I haven't got any money!", "I'm broke!" and proceeded to close the door.

Quick as a flash, the guy wedged his foot in the door and pushed wide open. "Don't be too hasty!" he said. "Not until you have at least seen my demonstration."

And with that, he emptied a bucket of horse manure onto my hallway carpet.

"If this vacuum cleaner does not remove all traces of this horse manure from your carpet, Sir, I will personally eat the remainder."

I stepped back and said, "Well I hope you've got a fucking good appetite, because they cut off my electricity this morning.

The Allure of the Deal

What is it about a deal that makes people lose all semblance of rationality and buy something they normally wouldn’t? I had a friend who was willing to buy a Versace dress 2 sizes too big and hideous as hell for the chance to say I have a Versace dress. I mean it was 90% off but at $2000, it still would have cost her $200. Good price but red carpet material it wasn’t. We’ve all been guilty of buying something we never wanted simply because the deal was too good to pass up. Just recently I was boxing day shopping when I came across a stunning Armani jacket for $400, marked down from $1200 retail. Now I’ve always wanted to own an Armani anything so I tried it on. Wouldn’t you know it, it was a perfect fit. I stood in front of the mirror admiring myself and like Nicolas Cage in the family man thought “I don’t know why but this jacket makes me a better person.. When I got home I looked at my shoe rack and thought “Now which pair of $60 outlet shoes should I match with it”?

Human Tailgating

It's bad enough that we have to endure people riding your bumper while you're going 120 clicks in the fast lane but going down an escalator? What have rush hour commuters turned into in an effort to shave 5 minutes off their daily commute? As I was going down the escalator in the left lane (aka the fast lane) this morning, this young petite girl was right on my tail. For some reason, it was strangely similar to being tailgated by a Mazda Miata. As I hurdled down the stairs two at time, warm bialy in one hand, a cup of Dean and Deluca in the other, worlds were definetely colliding. I think tomorrow morning I'm just gonna move my Chevy Suburban ass over to the right.

Say It Isn't So

CBC announced that it will not be renewing the Hockey Night in Canada theme song.

Sounds like a plot from a Hollywood movie

The heist of the Bill Reid collection at Museum of Anthropology at UBC is now sounding like a plan from a Hollywood movie. Several hours before the heist, surveillance cameras mysteriously went off, and then security got a phone call. The caller claimed to be from the alarm company saying that there was a problem with the system and to ignore any alarms that might go off. Right....haven't we seen this enough during heist films and especially when Han Solo was telling Imperial guards that everything was OK. Well security fell for it and ignored the automated computer alerts sent to them. Furthermore, the guard at the museum left for a smoke break, allowing the window for the thieves to break in and spray bear spray. No wonder UBC was embarrassed to let us know how the heist happened.

The UroClub

You are golfing and feel the need to take a leak. There's no washroom in the near vicinity, nor are there any trees or bushes. So you reach for your 15th club in your bag. What kind of club is that, you say? It is your rescue club, the UroClub.

Rachael Ray's Tasty Travels

A while ago, we were at Monks and talking about TV shows. Then the topic somehow moved on to Rachael Ray's Tasty Travels.

Before she was famous, she taught Sex Education classes to New England debutants. Here is a long lost record from one of those sessions:

Joke of the Week

Three older ladies were discussing the travails of getting older. One said, "Sometimes I catch myself with a jar of mayonnaise in my hand in front of the refrigerator and can't remember whether I need to put it away, or start making a sandwich." The second lady chimed in, "Yes, sometimes I find myself on the landing of the stairs and can't remember whether I was on my way up or on my way down." The third one responded, "Well, I'm glad I don't have that problem; knock on wood!" as she rapped her knuckles on the table, then told them, "That must be the door, I'll get it!"
