I have the solution for the prevention of hijackings, and at the same time
getting our airline industry back on its feet.
Since men of the Muslim religion are not allowed to look at naked women we
should replace all of our female flight attendants with strippers.
Muslims would be afraid to get on the planes for fear of seeing a naked
woman, and of course, every businessman in this country would start flying
again in hope of seeing a naked woman.
We would have no more hijackings, and the airline industry would have record
Now why didn't Congress think of this?

There are three engineers in a car; an electrical engineer, a chemical
engineer and a Microsoft engineer. Suddenly the car just stops by the side
of the road, and the three engineers look at each other wondering what could
The electrical engineer suggests stripping down the electronics of the car
and trying to trace where a fault might have occurred.
The chemical engineer, not knowing much about cars, suggests that maybe the
fuel is becoming emulsified and getting blocked somewhere.
Then, the Microsoft engineer, not knowing much about anything, comes up with
a suggestion, 'Why don't we close all the windows, get out, get back in,
open the windows again, and maybe it'll work !?'

WILD BILL'S LEGACY
After much arguing and deliberation, historians this week have come up with
a phrase to describe the Clinton Era. It will be called: SEX BETWEEN THE
The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta announced that Clinton has proven
that you can get sex from Aides.
Jennifer Flowers was asked if her relationship with Clinton was anything
like Monica Lewinski's. She replied, "Close, but no cigar."
The FBI has coined a technical term for the stains found on Monica's dress:
Clinton now recruits interns from only four colleges: Moorhead, Oral
Roberts, Ball State and Bringham Young.
Did you know that Clinton had asked to change the Democratic seal from a
donkey to a condom. It represents inflation, halts production, and gives you a false sense of security while you are being screwed.
Washington has come up with a solution for the Clinton situation -- they
added an 11th commandment: "Thou shall not put thy rod in thy staff."
Arkansas is very proud of Bill Clinton. All these women coming forward, and
not one is his sister!
Finally, Hillary Clinton recently went to a fortune teller who intoned,
"Prepare to become a widow. Your husband will soon suffer a violent death!"
Hillary took a deep breath and asked, "Will I be acquitted?"

AHHHH!!!! THE LIGHTER SIDE!!!!
1.The closest I ever got to a 4.0 in college was my blood alcohol content (yup,....that's me party animal...as you can tell)
2.Marriage changes passion...suddenly you're in bed with a relative.
3.I live in my own little world. But it's OK...they know me here.
4.I saw a woman wearing a sweat shirt with 'Guess' on it. So I said, "Implants?"
5.I don't do drugs anymore 'cause I find I get the same effect just standing up really fast.
6.Sign In Chinese Pet Store: "Buy one dog, get one flea..."
7.Money can't buy happiness, but it sure makes misery easier to live with.
8.I got a sweater for Christmas... I wanted a screamer or a moaner.
9.If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?
10.I don't approve of political jokes...I've seen too many of them get elected.
11.The most precious thing we have is life. Yet it has absolutely no trade-in value.
12.There are two sides to every divorce: Yours and s…head's.
13.If life deals you lemons, make lemonade; if it deals you tomatoes, make Bloody Marys. But if it deals you a truckload of hand grenades...now THAT'S a message!!
14.I love being married.(MAYBE THAT'S WHY I'M NOT) It's so great to find that one special person you want to annoy for the rest of your life.
15.Shopping tip: You can get shoes for 85 cents at the bowling alley.
16.I am a nobody, and nobody is perfect; therefore I am perfect.
17.I married my husband for his looks ... but not the ones he's been giving me lately!
18.Everyday I beat my own previous record for number of consecutive days I've stayed alive.
19.Two peanuts were walking down the street. One was a salty.
20.Isn't it funny how the mood can be ruined so quickly by just one busted cond...(could it be condiment?)
21.If carrots are so good for the eyes, how come I see so many dead rabbits on the highway?
22.Welcome To Sh.. Creek ~ Sorry, We're Out of Paddles!
23.How come we choose from just two people to run for president and 50 for Miss America?
24.Isn't having a smoking section in a restaurant like having a peeing section in a swimming pool?
25.Why is it that most nudists are people you don't want to see naked?
26.The next time you feel like complaining remember...Your garbage disposal probably eats better than thirty percent of the people in this world.
27.Every time I walk into a singles bar I can hear Mom's wise words: "Don't pick that up, you don't know where it's been!"
28.We have all been to those meetings where someone wants over 100 percent. How about achieving 103 percent? Here's a little math that might prove helpful in the future. What makes life 100 percent?
If A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
can be represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
Then, H A R D W O R K, 8 1 18 4 23 15 18 11 = 98% only
K N O W L E D G E, 11 14 15 23 12 5 4 7 5 = 96% only
But, A T T I T U D E, 1 20 20 9 20 21 4 5 = 100 %
And, B U L L S . . T, 2 21 12 12 19 8 9 20 = 103%
So, it stands to reason that hardwork and knowledge will get you close, but attitude and bullsh..t will put you over the top. Except, maybe not in the fire service.

I originally shied away from this thread having seen six pages and determined I wasn't bored enough to read six pages of anything. Then I found myself so bored that I went through all six pages and read each of the posts. Then decided there really wasn't anything to say that hadn't been said and decided I needed to post just to let you all know I read all of this stuff.

PLEASE DON'T SPANK ME FOR THIS!!!
It's funny how religion works.
At the start of a meeting of world religious leaders.
A secretary rushed in shouting "The building is on fire!"
The Methodists gathered in a corner and prayed.
The Baptists cried "Where is the water?"
The Lutherans posted a fire notice on the door.
The Catholics passed the plate to cover the damage.
The Jews held a special observance.
The congregationalists shouted "Every man for himself!"
The Fundalmentalists proclaimed "It's the vengeance of God!"
The Episcopalians formed a procession and marched out.
The Christian Scientists concluded that there was no fire.
The Unitarians proclaimed the fire had no power over them.
The Presbyterians appointed a chair person to appoint a committee to look into the matter and submit a written report.
The secretary grabbed the fire extinguisher and put the fire out.
And the Mormons arrived late for the meeting and missed the fire completely.
Ohhhh!!!! I pray I didn't offend anyone! Firefighter 26, you can spank me on this one!!!!
