I said to my wife, "Guess what I heard in the bar? They reckon the milkman has made love to every woman on our road except one." And she said, "I'll bet it's that stuck-up Phyllis at number 23."

A father and son went hunting together for the first time.
The father said, "Stay here and be very QUIET. I'll be across the field."
A few minutes later, the father heard a bloodcurdling scream and ran back to his son. "What's wrong?" the father asked. "I told you to be quiet." The son answered, "Look, I was quiet when the snake slithered across my feet. I was quiet when the bear breathed down my neck. I didn't move a muscle when the skunk climbed over my shoulder. I closed my eyes and held my breath when the wasp stung me. I didn't cough when I swallowed the gnat. I didn't cuss or scratch when the poison oak started itching. But when the two chipmunks crawled up my pant legs and said, 'Should we eat them here or take them with us?' Well, I guess I just panicked."

During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director how he knew who should be institutionalized.
"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup and a bucket to the prospective patient and then we ask him or her to empty the bathtub."
"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."
"No," said the Director, "a normal person would pull the plug out. Do you want a room with or without a view?"

A hillbilly walks into a home improvement store and says "Give me a chain saw that can cut down ten trees in an hour. So the guy gives him a chain saw. The next day the hillbilly comes back and says "You lied, it only cut down one scrawny baby tree in an hour!" The man behind the desk comes up, grabs the chain saw, gets it's motor running and just then the hillbilly said "Hey! what's that noise?"

The famous Olympic skier Picabo Street (pronounced Peek-A-Boo) is not just an athlete . . . she is now a nurse currently working at the Intensive Care Unit of a large metropolitan hospital. She is not permitted to answer the hospital telephones any longer. It caused too much confusion when she would answer the phone and say, Picabo, ICU.

Tax officials in Valparaiso, Ind., admitted in February that they mistakenly valued one house at $400 million (though its previous assessment was $121,900), and even though they recomputed the owner's bill, they failed to erase from the city budget the $8 million in tax revenue they were expecting from the property, including $3 million that they had already disbursed.

Lost in the Translation
The American Dairy Association experienced tremendous success with the campaign, "Got Milk?" It was decided to extend the ads to Mexico. Unfortunately, the Spanish translation was "Are you lactating?"
Electrolux, a Scandinavian vacuum manufacturer, used this ad in the U.S.: "Nothing sucks like an Electrolux."
Colgate introduced a toothpaste called "Cue" in France, but it turned out to be the same name as a well-known porno magazine.
When Braniff translated a slogan touting its upholstery, "Fly in leather," it came out in Spanish as "Fly naked."
Coors put its slogan, "Turn it loose," into Spanish, where it was read as "Suffer from diarrhea."
Chicken magnate Frank Perdue's line, "It takes a tough man to make a tender chicken," sounds much more interesting in Spanish: "It takes a sexually stimulated man to make a chicken affectionate."
Bacardi concocted a fruity drink with the name "Pavian" to suggest French chic...but "pavian" means "baboon" in German.
A hair products company, Clairol, introduced the "Mist Stick", a curling iron, into Germany only to find out that mist is slang for manure. Not too many people had use for the manure stick.
When Kentucky Fried Chicken entered the Chinese market, to their horror they discovered that their slogan "finger lickin' good" came out as "eat your fingers off"
When Vicks first introduce its cough drops on the German market, they were chagrined to learn that the German pronunciation of "v" is f - which in German is the guttural equivalent of "sexual penetration."
Parker Pens translated the slogan for its ink, "Avoid Embarrassment - Use Quink" into Spanish as "Evite Embarazos - Use Quink"...which also means, "Avoid Pregnancy - Use Quink."
When Pepsi started marketing its products in China a few years back, they translated their slogan, "Pepsi Brings You Back to Life" pretty literally. The slogan in Chinese really meant, "Pepsi Brings Your Ancestors Back from the Grave."
In Italy, a campaign for "Schweppes Tonic Water" translated the name into the much less thirst quenching "Schweppes Toilet Water."
Chinese translation proved difficult for Coke, which took two tries to get it right. They first tried Ke-kou-ke-la because when pronounced it sounded roughly like Coca-Cola. It wasn't until after thousands of signs had been printed that they discovered that the phrase means "bite the wax tadpole" or "female horse stuffed with wax," depending on the dialect. Second time around things worked out much better. After researching 40,000 Chinese characters, Coke came up with "ko-kou-ko-le" which translates roughly to the much more appropriate "happiness in the mouth."
Not to be outdone, Puffs tissues tried later to introduce its product, only to learn that "Puff" in German is a colloquial term for a whorehouse. The English weren't too fond of the name either, as it's a highly derogatory term for a non-heterosexual.
The Chevy Nova never sold well in Spanish speaking countries. "No va" means "it doesn't go" in Spanish.
Ford introduced the Pinto in Brazil. After watching sales go nowhere, the company learned that "Pinto" is Brazilian slang for "tiny male genitals." Ford pried the nameplates off all of the cars and substituted them with "Corcel" which means horse.
When Gerber first started selling baby food in Africa, they used the same packaging as here in the USA - with the cute baby on the label. Later they found out that in Africa companies routinely put pictures on the label of what's inside since most people can't read.
In the French part of Canada, Hunt-Wesson introduced its "Big John" products as "Gros Jos." It later found out that the phrase is slang for "big breasts."
Fiat once tried to sell its "Ritmo" model in Spain. Unfortunately, "Ritmo" was one of the most popular condom brands in Spain at the time.
When Mitsubishi introduced the "Pajero" RV, it literally meant in Argentina "one who masturbates".

A man absolutely hated his wife's cat and decided to get rid of him one day by driving him 20 blocks from his home and leaving him at the park.
As he was getting home, the cat was walking up the driveway.
The next day he decided to drive the cat 40 blocks away. He put the beast out and headed home.
Driving back up his driveway, there was the cat!
He kept taking the cat further and further and the cat would always beat him home. At last he decided to drive a few miles away, turn right, then left, past the bridge, then right again and another right until he reached what he thought was a safe distance from his home and left the cat there.
Hours later the man calls home to his wife: "Jen, is the cat there?"
"Yes", the wife answers, "why do you ask?"
Frustrated, the man answered, "Put that son of a ***** on the phone, I'm lost and need directions!"

5 questions most feared by men are:
What are you thinking about?
Do you love me?
Do I look fat?
Do you think she is prettier than me?
What would you do if I died?
makes these questions so difficult is that every one is guaranteed to
explode into a major argument if the man answers incorrectly (i.e.,tells
thetruth). Therefore, as a
public service, each question is analyzed below, with possible
# 1: What are you thinking
proper answer to this, of course, is: "I'm sorry if I've been
pensive, dear. I was just
reflecting on what a warm, wonderful, thoughtful, caring, intelligent
woman you are, and how lucky I am to have met you."
response obviously bears no resemblance to the true answer, which most
likely is one of the following:
How fat you are.
How much prettier she is than you.
How I would spend the insurance money if you died.
the best response to this question was offered by Al Bundy, who once
told Peg, "If I wanted you to know what I was thinking, I would be
talking to you."
# 2: Do you love me?
proper response is: "YES!" or, if you feel a more detailed
answer is in order, "Yes, dear."
Oh Yeah, shit-loads.
Would it make you feel better if I said yes?
That depends on what you mean by love.
Does it matter?
Do I look fat?
correct answer is an emphatic: "Of course not!"
the incorrect answers are:
Compared to what?
I wouldn't call you fat, but you're not exactly thin.
A little extra weight looks good on you.
I've seen fatter.
Could you repeat the question?
I was just thinking about how I would spend the insurance money
if you died.
Do you think she's prettier than me?
again, the proper response is an emphatic: "Of course not!"
Yes, but you have a better personality
Not prettier, but definitely thinner
Not as pretty as you when you were her age
Could you repeat the question?
I was just thinking about how I would spend the insurance money
if you died.
What would you do if I died?
definite no-win question.
(The real answer, of course, is "Buy a Corvette and a
matter how you answer this, be prepared for at least an hour of
follow-up questions, usually along the these lines:
Would you get married again?
Why not-don't you like being married?
Of course I do.
Then why wouldn't you remarry?
Okay, I'd get married again.
You would? (with a hurtful look on her face)
( makes audible groan )
Would you sleep with her in our bed?
Where else would we sleep?
Would you put away my pictures, and replace them with pictures of
That would seem like the proper thing to do.
And would you let her use my golf clubs?
She can't use them; she's left-handed.

RESEARCH FINDINGS ON WOMEN
1. Tests have shown that women rate 3% higher in
general intelligence than men although their
brain size is smaller. Most women act dumb to
make their mates look good.
2. Women are
walking radar detectors, that is
why men have difficulty lying to women. Their
brains have the ability to integrate and decipher
verbal, visual and other signals of body language.
3. Women want lots of sex with the man she
loves. Men just want lots of sex.
4. When men flirt, they will lower their pitch
of voice. Women will raise theirs.
5. Women talk and think aloud while men do them
silently. As a result, men think women talk too
much and are nags.
6. Women talk about their problems as a way of
relieving stress. She wants to be heard, not
fixed by being offered advice and solutions.
7. Speech and words are not a specific brain
skill for men. They find it hard to express
themselves. That's why they often choose greeting
cards with plenty of words inside. That way,
there's less space for them to write.
8. Women leave men, not because they are unhappy
with what he can provide, but because they are
9. Women uses an average of 20,000 communication
words, sounds, and gestures a day. Men only
use about 7,000.
10. So if a woman is talking to you a lot, she
likes you. But if she's not talking, you're
11. Men are more thick-skined than women.
Literally.Which explains why women have more
wrinkles than men.
12. If a woman is unhappy in her relationship,
she can't concentrate on her work. If a man
13. Men can only do one thing at a time. When
they stop their car to read a street directory,
they have to turn down the radio. Women's brains
are configured for multi-tasking performance.
They can talk on the phone, watch the TV and
cook at the same time.
14. Most men get a brain hemorrhage after 20
minutes of clothes shopping.
15. When it comes to sex, women need a reason;
men need a place.
16. 15% to 20% of men have feminised brains.
About 10% of women have masculinised brains.
So there are more gays than lesbians in the world.

"I hope you didn't take it personally, Reverend," an embarrassed woman said after a church service, "when my husband walked out during your sermon."
"I did find it rather disconcerting," the preacher replied.
"It's not a reflection on you, sir," insisted the churchgoer. "Ralph has been walking in his sleep ever since he was a child."

A husband is advised
by a psychiatrist to assert himself. "You don't have to let
your wife henpeck you. Go home and show her you're the
boss." The husband takes the doctor's advice. He
rushes home, slams the door, shakes his fist in his wife's face, and
growls, "From now on, you're taking orders from me. I
want my supper right now, and when you get it on the table, go
upstairs, and lay out my best clothes. Tonight, I'm going out with
the boys, and you are going to stay at home where you belong.
And another thing, guess who's going to comb my hair, give me a
shave, and tie my necktie?"
His wife says calmly, " The undertaker."

A man at the bar is staring at his drink. After half an hour, a troublemaker takes the drink and downs it. As the man starts crying, the troublemaker says: ‘Look, I was just joking. Here, I’ll buy you another drink.’ ‘It’s not that,’ the man says. ‘This has been the worst day of my life. First, I overslept, was late for work and my boss fired me. Then I went to leave, only to find my car had been stolen. When I reported it, the police said they couldn’t do anything. And as I stepped out of the cab when I got home, I realized I’d left my wallet and credit card in the car. Then I found my wife in bed with the milkman, so I came to this pub. And while I was thinking about ending my life, you went and drank my poison.’
