was getting a little crowded in Heaven, so God decided to change the
admittance policy. The new law was that, in order to get into Heaven,
you had to have a really bad day the day you died.
policy would go into effect at noon the following day.
next day at 12:01 pm the first person came to the gates of Heaven. The
angel at the gate, remembering about the new law, tells the man,
"Before I can let you in, I need you to tell me about the day you
died." "No problem," said the man. "Well, for some
time now, I've thought my wife was having an affair. I believed that
each day on her lunch hour, she'd bring her lover home to our 25th
floor apartment and have sex with him. So today I was going to come
home to catch them. Well, I got there and busted in and immediately
began searching for this guy. My wife was half naked and yelling at me
as I searched the entire apartment. But I couldn't find him! Just as I
was about to give up, I happened to glance out onto the balcony and
noticed that there was a man hanging off the edge by his fingertips!
The nerve of that guy to think he could hide from me!
I ran out there and promptly stomped on his fingers until he fell to
the ground. But, wouldn't you know it, he landed in some bushes that
broke his fall, and he didn't die. In a rage, I went back inside to
get the first thing I could get my hands on to throw at him. Oddly
enough, the first thing I could grab was the refrigerator. I unplugged
it, pushed it out onto the balcony and heaved it over the side. It
plummeted 25 stories and crushed him! The excitement of the moment was
so great that right after that I had a heart attack and died almost
angel sat back and thought for a moment. Technically, the guy DID have
a bad day, and it WAS a crime of passion, so he announced, "OK,
sir. Welcome to the Kingdom of Heaven" and let him in.
few seconds later the next guy came up. "OK. Here's the rule.
Before I can let you in, I need to hear about the day you died."
thing," the man replied. "But you're not gonna believe this.
I was out on the balcony of my 26th floor apartment doing my daily
exercises when I got a little carried away and accidentally fell over
the side! Luckily however, I was able to catch myself by my fingertips
on the balcony directly beneath mine. Then all of a sudden this crazy
man comes running out of his apartment and starts cussing and stomping
on my fingers! Well, of course, I fell. I hit some trees and bushes on
the way down which broke my fall, so I didn't die right away. As I'm
lying there face up on the ground, unable to move and in excruciating
pain, I see the man push his refrigerator, of all things, over the
ledge and it falls directly on top of me and kills me!"
angel is quietly laughing to himself as the man finishes his story.
"I could get used to this new policy" he thinks to himself.
"Very well" the angel announces. "Welcome to the
Kingdom of Heaven," and he lets the man enter.
A few seconds later the third man in line comes up to the gate. "Tell me about the day you died," said the angel. "OK. Picture this," says the man. "I'm naked inside a refrigerator..."

A man dies and goes to Heaven. He gets to meet God and asks GOD if he can ask him a few questions. "Sure," God says, "Go right ahead". "OK," the man says.
"Why did you make women so pretty?"
God says, "So you would like them."
"OK," the guy says. "But how come you made them so beautiful?"
"So you would LOVE them", God replies.
The man ponders a moment and then asks, "But why did you make them such airheads?"
God says, "So they would love you!"

elderly ladies are sitting playing bridge. The first lady says: ‘Girls,

off my chest. I’m a kleptomaniac. But don’t worry, I’ve never stolen
from any of you and I never will.’
The second lady pipes up: ‘Well, since
we’re confessing all, I must tell you I’m a nymphomaniac. But don’t
worry, I’ve never fried to seduce your husbands and I never will.’
‘Well,’ says the third lady. ‘I’ve

A man walks into a bar with an octopus and bets the locals £1,000 that it can play any Instrument. One man hands it a guitar and it strums away. Soon It’s producing tunes on a piano. Mouth organ and violin, too. Then a Scotsman turns up with bagpipes. The owner of the octopus looks worried and whispers to it, can you play that, or shall we leg It?’ ‘Play It?’ replies the octopus. “I’m going to bonk it once I’ve got its pyjamas off!”

This is a bricklayer's
accident report, which was printed in the newsletter of the Australian
equivalent of the Workers' Compensation Board. This is a true
story. Had this guy died, he'd have received a Darwin Award for
I am writing in response to your request for additional information in Block 3 of the accident report form. I put 'poor planning' as the cause of my accident. You asked for a fuller explanation and I trust the following details will be sufficient.
I am a bricklayer by trade. On the day of the accident, I was working alone on the roof of a new six-story building. When I completed my work, I found that I had some bricks left over which, when weighed later, were found to be slightly in excess of 500lbs. Rather than carry the bricks down by hand, I decided to lower them in a barrel by using a pulley, which was attached to the side of the building on the sixth floor.
Securing the rope at ground level I went up onto the roof, swung the barrel out and loaded the bricks into it. Then I went down and untied the rope, holding it tightly to ensure a slow descent of the bricks. You will note in Block 11 of the accident report form that I weigh 135lbs. Due to my surprise at being jerked off the ground so suddenly, I lost my presence of mind and forgot to let go of the rope. Needless to say, I proceeded at a rapid rate up the side of the building.
In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel, which was now proceeding downward at an equally impressive speed. This explained the fractured skull, minor abrasions and the broken collar bone, as listed in section 3 of the accident report form.
Slowed only slightly, I continued my rapid ascent, not stopping until the fingers of my right hand were two knuckles deep into the pulley. Fortunately by this time I had regained my presence of mind and was able to hold tightly to the rope, in spite of beginning to experience pain. At approximately the same time, however, the barrel of bricks hit the ground and the bottom fell out of the barrel. Now devoid of the weight of
the bricks, that barrel weighed approximately 50 lbs. I refer you again to my weight. As you can imagine, I began a rapid descent down the side of the building.
In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel coming up. This accounts for the two fractured ankles, broken tooth and several lacerations of my legs and lower body. Here my luck began to change slightly. The encounter with the barrel seemed to slow me enough to lessen my injuries when I fell into the pile of bricks and fortunately only three vertebrae were cracked.
I am sorry to report, however, as I lay there on the pile of bricks, in pain and unable to move, I again lost my composure and presence of mind and let go of the rope and I lay there watching the empty barrel begin its journey back down onto me. This explains the two broken legs.
I hope this answers your inquiry.

A few truths in
The difference between a duck and a co-pilot?
The duck can fly.
A checkride ought to be like a skirt--short enough to be
interesting, but long enough to cover everything
Speed is life. Altitude is life insurance.
It only takes two things to fly: airspeed, and money.
The three most dangerous things in aviation:
A doctor in a Bonanza.
Two captains in a DC-9.
A flight attendant with a chipped tooth.
If it's ugly, it's British.
If it's weird, it's French.
If it's ugly and weird, it's Russian.
Without ammunition, the USAF would be just another very expensive
The three best things in life are a good landing, a good orgasm, and a
good bowel movement. The night carrier landing is one of the few
opportunities to experience all three at the same time.
(A DC-9 captain trainee attempting to check out on the 'glass cockpit'
of an A-320.) "Now I know what a dog feels like watching TV."
The similarity between air traffic controllers and pilots?
If a pilot screws up, the pilot dies.
If ATC screws up, the pilot dies.
It's better to break ground and head into the wind than to break wind
and head into the ground.
The difference between flight attendants and jet engines is that the
engines usually quit whining when they get to the gate.
New FAA motto: "We're not happy, til you're not happy."
A copilot is a knothead until he spots opposite direction traffic at
12 o'clock, after which he's a goof-off for not seeing it sooner.
If something hasn't broken on your helicopter--it's about to.
I give that landing a 9 . . . on the Richter scale.
Basic Flying Rules:
1. Try to stay in the middle of the air.
2. Do not go near the edges of it.
3. The edges of the air can be recognized by the appearance of ground,
buildings, sea, trees and interstellar space. It is much more
difficult to fly there.
Unknown landing signal officer to carrier pilot after his 6th
unsuccessful landing attempt: "You've got to land here son.
This is where the food is."

the one that will get you home by nine o'clock." - Ronald Reagan

The value of good
Be careful what you wear when working under your vehicle especially in public. This is a true news story of a couple who drove their car to K-Mart only to have their car break down in the parking lot. The man told his wife to carry on with the shopping while he fixed the car there in the lot.
The wife returned after an hour of shopping to find a small group of people near the car. On closer inspection she saw her husband's legs protruding from under the chassis.
Although he was in shorts, his lack of underwear turned private parts into glaringly public ones. Unable to stand the embarrassment, she dutifully stepped forward, quickly put her hand up his shorts and tucked everything back into place.
On regaining her feet, she looked across the hood and found herself staring at her husband, who was standing idly by.
The mechanic, however, had to have three stitches in his head.

I went to the store the other day, I was only in there for about 5 minutes and when I came out there was a damn motorcycle cop writing a parking ticket. So I went up to him and said, 'Come on buddy, how about giving a guy a break?' He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. So I called him a pencil necked nazi. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having bald tires!! So I called him a horse shit. He finished the second ticket and put it on the car with the first. Then he started writing a third ticket!! This went on for about 20 minutes, the more I abused him, the more tickets he wrote. I didn't give a damn. My car was parked around the corner...
Saturday Aug 17 2002A big-city California lawyer went duck hunting in rural Mississippi.
He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a farmer's field on the other side of a fence. As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing.
The attorney responded, "I shot a duck and it fell in this field, and now I'm going into retrieve it."
The old farmer replied, "This is my property, and you are not coming over here." The indignant lawyer said, "I am one of the best trial attorneys in the US and, if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything you own."
The old farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you don't know how we do things in Mississippi. We settle small disagreements like this with the Mississippi Three-Kick Rule."
The lawyer asked, "What is this three-kick Rule?"
The farmer replied, "Well, first I kick you three times and then you kick me three times, and so on, back and forth, until someone gives up."
The attorney quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. He agreed to abide by the local custom.
The old farmer slowly climbed
down from the tractor and walked up to the city feller. His first kick planted
the toe of his heavy work boot into the lawyer's groin and dropped him to his
knees. His second kick nearly wiped the man's nose off his
face. The barrister was flat on his belly when the farmer's third kick to a kidney nearly caused him to give up.
The lawyer summoned every bit of his will and managed to get to his feet and said, "Okay, you old coot, now it's my turn."
The old farmer smiled and said, "Naw, I give up. You can have the duck"

"How do you feel after doing this for 50 years?"

The following are
supposedly extracts from translations into English
found in European travel brochures.
Our representative will make you wait at the airport. The bus to the hotel runs along the lake shore. Soon you will feel pleasure in passing water. You will know that you are getting near the hotel, because you will go round the bend.
The manager will await you in the entrance hall. He always tries to have
intercourse with all new guests.
This is a family hotel, so children are very welcome. We of course are always pleased to accept adultery. Highly skilled nurses are available in the evenings to put down your children. Guests are invited to conjugate in the bar and expose themselves to others. But please note that ladies are not allowed to have their babies in the bar. We organise social games, so no guest is ever left alone to play with himself.
Our menus have been carefully chosen to be ordinary and unexciting.
At dinner, our quartet will circulate from table to table, and fiddle with you.
Every room has excellent facilities for your private parts. In winter, every room is on heat. Each room has a balcony offering views of outstanding obscenity. You will not be disturbed by traffic noise, since the road between the hotel and the lake is used only by pederasts. Your bed has been made in accordance with local tradition. If you have any other ideas please ring for the
chambermaid. Please take advantage of her. She will be very pleased to
squash your shirts, blouses and underwear. If asked, she will also squeeze your trousers.
When you leave us at the end of your holiday, you will have no hope. You
will struggle to forget it."--

It was late at night
and Heidi, who was expecting her second child was home alone with her
3-year old daughter Katelyn. When Heidi started going into
labour, she called "911." Due to a power outage at the
time, only one paramedic responded to the call.
The house was very,very dark, so the paramedic asked Katelyn to hold a flashlight high over her mommy so he could see while he helped deliver the baby. Very diligently, Katelyn did as she was asked. Heidi pushed and pushed, and after a little while Connor was born. The paramedic lifted him by his little feet and spanked him on his bottom. Connor began to cry. The paramedic then thanked Katelyn for her help and asked the wide-eyed 3-year old what she thought about what she had just witnessed. Katelyn quickly responded, "He shouldn't have crawled in there in the first place. "Smack him again!"

While taking a routine
vandalism report at an elementary school, I was
interrupted by a little girl about six years old. Looking up and down at my
uniform, she asked, "Are you a cop?" "Yes," I answered and continued
writing the report. "My mother said if I ever needed help I should ask the
police. Is that right?" "Yes, that's right," I told her.
"Well, then," she said as she extended her foot toward me, "would you
please tie my shoe?"
It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in front of the
station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9 partner, Jake, was barking, and
I saw a little boy staring in at me. "Is that a dog you got back there?"
he asked. "It sure is," I replied. Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then
towards the back of the van. Finally he said, "What'd he do?"
While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly
shut-ins, I used to take my four-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds.
She was intrigued by the various appliances of old age, particularly the
canes, walkers, and wheelchairs. One day I found her staring at a pair of
false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the inevitable
barrage of questions, she merely turned and whispered, "The tooth fairy will
never believe this!"

While walking along the sidewalk in front of his church, our minister heard
the intoning of a prayer that nearly made his collar wilt. Apparently his
five-year-old son and his playmates had found a dead robin. Feeling that
proper burial should be performed, they had secured a small box and cotton
batting, then dug a hole and made ready for the disposal of the deceased.
The minister's son was chosen to say the appropriate prayers and with
sonorous dignity intoned his version of what he thought his father always
said. "Glory be unto the Faaaather...and unto the Sonnnn...and into the

To close each day's activities in summer and on holidays in the Magic
Kingdom at Walt Disney World at Lake Buena Vista, Fla., a huge fireworks
display lights up the sky. One night I noticed a small boy about three
years old perched on his father's shoulder. The child sat mesmerized, aware
only of what was exploding in the heavens. When the fireworks were over,
the little boy looked up into the sky again and said, "Thank you, God."
My best lesson in child psychology came when I saw our five-year-old,
Steven, roughly jerking our toy poodle's leash. Suddenly his fuming father
appeared and asked, "Do you want to tell me how sorry you are?"
"I don't know how much you saw!" Steven stammered.
When my wife quit work to take care of our new baby daughter, countless
hours of peek-a-boo and other games slowly took their toll. One evening she
smacked her bare toes on the corner of a dresser and, grabbing her foot,
sank to the floor. I rushed to her side and asked where it hurt. She looked
at me through tear-filled eyes and managed to moan, "It's the piggy that ate
We had spent the day moving from our farmhouse into our new house in town.
Early the next morning, our 3 1/2-year old ran into our bedroom to wake us
up. I dressed him and told him to play in the yard and to quit bothering us.
About 20 minutes later, he came running back. "Mommy, Mommy," he
exclaimed, "everybody has doorbells and they all work."
A little girl had just finished her first week of school. "I'm wasting my time," she said to her mother. I can't read, I can't write--and they won't let me talk!"
One day Mother sent my little brother to the post office to mail a letter.
A few minutes later he came back with a suspicious smile on his face. "What
happened?" my mother asked." "I just fooled the people at the post office.
When no one was looking, I dropped the letter into the box without buying
Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother, "Why is the bride dressed in white?" "Because white is the color of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life," her mother tried to explain, keeping it simple. The child thought about this for a moment, then said, "So why's the groom wearing black?"

There was an old man, a
boy and a donkey. They were going to town and it was decided
that the boy should ride. As they went along they passed some
people who thought that it was a shame for the boy to ride and the old
man to walk.
The man and boy decided that maybe the critics were right so they changed positions. Later, they passed some more people who thought that it was a real shame for that man to make such a small boy walk. The two decided that maybe they both should walk.
Soon they passed some more people who thought that it was stupid to walk when they had a donkey to ride. The man and the boy decided maybe the critics were right so they decided that they both should ride.
They soon passed other people who thought that it was a shame to put such a load on a poor little animal. The old man and the boy decided that maybe the critics were right so they decided to carry the donkey.
As they crossed a bridge they lost their grip on the animal and it fell into the river and drowned.
The moral of the story is...if you try to please everyone, you will eventually lose your ass.

A guy buys a brand new Lincoln Navigator for $42,500 and has $560 monthly payments. He and a friend go duck hunting in winter, and of course all the lakes are frozen. These two guys go out on the lake with the guns, the dog, and of course the new vehicle. They drive out onto the lake ice and get ready. Now, they want to make some kind of a natural landing area for the ducks, something for the decoys to float on. In order to make a hole large enough to look like something a wandering duck would fly down and land on, it is going to take a little more effort than an ice hole drill.
So, out of the back of the new Navigator comes a stick of dynamite with a short, 40-second fuse. Now these two Rocket Scientists do take into consideration that they want to place the stick of dynamite on the ice at a location far from where they are standing (and the new Navigator), because they don't want to take the risk of slipping on the ice when they run from the burning fuse and possibly go up in smoke with the resulting blast. They light the 40-second fuse and throw the dynamite.
Remember a couple of
paragraphs back when I mentioned the vehicle, the guns and the
Let's talk about the dog: A highly trained Black Lab used for RETRIEVING. Especially things thrown by the owner. You guessed it, the dog takes off at a high rate of doggy speed on the ice and captures the stick of dynamite with the burning 40-second fuse about the time it hits the ice. The two men yell, scream, wave their arms and wonder what to do now. The dog, cheered on, keeps coming. One of the guys grabs the shotgun and shoots the dog. The shotgun is loaded with # 8 buckshot, hardly big enough to stop a Black Lab.
The dog stops for a moment, slightly confused, but continues on. Another shot and this time the dog, still standing, becomes really confused, and of course terrified, thinking these two geniuses have gone insane. The dog takes off to find cover, under the brand new Navigator.
Dog and Navigator are blown to bits and sink to the bottom of the lake in a very large hole, leaving the two retards standing there with this "I can't believe this happened" look on their faces.
The insurance company says that sinking a vehicle in a lake by illegal use of explosives is not covered. He still had yet to make the first of those $560 a month payments!

On a tour of Scotland, the Pope took a couple of days off his itinerary to visit the North coast near Aberdeen on an impromptu sightseeing trip.
His 4X4 Popemobile was driving along the golden sands when there was an enormous commotion heard just off the headland. They rushed to see what it was and upon approaching the scene the Pope noticed just outside the surf, a hapless man wearing an English football jersey, struggling frantically to free himself from the jaws of a twenty foot shark.
At that moment a
speedboat containing three men wearing Scottish football tops roared
into view from around the point. Spontaneously, one of the men took
aim and fired a harpoon into the shark's ribs, immobilizing it
The other two reached out and pulled the Englishman from the water and then, using long clubs, beat the shark to death.
They bundled the
bleeding, semi conscious man into the speed boat along with the
dead shark and then prepared for a hasty retreat, when they heard frantic shouting
from the shore. It was of course the Pope, and he summoned them to the beach.
Upon them reaching the
shore the Pope went into raptures about the rescue and
said, "I give you my blessing for your brave actions. I had heard that there were some
racist xenophobic people trying to divide Scotland and England, but, now I have seen
with my own eyes this is not true. I can see that your society is a truly enlightened
example of racial harmony and could serve as a model on which other nations could
He blessed them all and drove off in a cloud of dust.
As he departed, the harpoonist asked the others, "Who was that???!"
"That," one answered, "was his Holiness the Pope. He is in direct contact with God and has access to all God's wisdom."
harpoonist replied, "he knows f*ck all about shark hunting.
How's that bait holding, up or do we need to get another one?"

A whale of a
Two whales, a male and a female, were swimming side by side in the ocean. Suddenly, the male whale spots a ship in the distance. He recognizes it as the whaling ship that killed his father. Filled with anger, he says to his female companion, "That's the ship that killed my father! Let's swim closer!"
When they were close enough, the male said, "Why don't we swim under the ship and blow air through our blow holes and break the ship into a million pieces? That will be sweet revenge." And the female agreed to this. So they each took a deep breath of air, swam under the ship, and blew enormous amounts of air under the ship. The ship flew into the air and crashed back to the sea and broke into a million pieces.
The pair of whales started to swim off when they realized that the sailors were floating in the ocean. The male whale was furious and said to the female whale, "They're still alive, but I've got another idea. Let's swim around and gulp down all the sailors!"
That's when the female stopped swimming, looked at her man and said, "Oh no... I agreed to the blow job but I'm NOT swallowing the seamen."
