Ed and Dorothy - 03/31/10 12:48 PM
Ed and Dorothy met while on a singles cruise and Ed fell head over heels for her. When they discovered they lived in the same city only a few miles apart Ed was ecstatic. He immediately started asking her out when they got home. Within a couple of weeks, Ed had taken Dorothy to dance clubs, restaurants, concerts, movies, and museums. Ed became convinced that Dorothy was indeed his soul mate and true love. Every date seemed better than the last. On the one-month anniversary of their first dinner on the cruise ship, Ed took Dorothy to a fine restaurant. While having cocktails and waiting (12 comments)
Flame Thrower - 03/29/10 02:09 PM
I thought this might be good for a caption contest.
This is actually a story about a gentleman who modified his scooter, with an anti-tailgating flame thrower operated by the flick of switch. Sounds like a good idea but he was arrested on suspicion of possessing an object converted into a firearm! Whatever next!!!!!! (13 comments)

Very Sage Advice - 03/21/10 03:41 PM
EVER SINCE I WAS A CHILD, I'VE ALWAYS HAD A FEAR OF SOMEONEUNDER MY BED AT NIGHT. SO I WENT TO A PSYCHIATRIST AND TOLD HIM. 'I've got problems. Every time I go to bed I think there's somebody under it. I'm scared. I think I'm going crazy.''Just put yourself in my hands for one year,' said the psychiatrists. 'Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears...''How much do you charge?' 'Eighty dollars per visit,' replied theDoctor. 'I'll sleep on it,' I said.Six months later the doctor met me on (9 comments)

Sitting together on a train, travelling through the Swiss Alps,were a French guy, an English bloke, a little old Greek lady, and a young blonde Swiss girl with large breasts. The Train goes into a dark tunnel and a few seconds later there is the sound of a loud slap.When the train emerges from the tunnel, the French guy has a bright red, hand print on his cheek. No one speaks.The old lady thinks:The French guy must have groped the blonde in the dark, and she slapped his cheek.The blonde Swiss girl thinks:That French guy must have tried to grope me in the dark, but missed and (6 comments)

Scottish Jokes - 03/11/10 09:38 AM
As many of you may know, I come from the Uk originally but, more specifically, from Scotland. I thought I would share with you a few Scottish jokes that I have just been reminded of! A Scot is the only man on earth who would step over the bodies of a dozen bronzed naked beauties just to get to a glass of whiskey.A Glaswegian stops before a graveyard in a Gorbals cemetery, and notices a carved tombstone declaring,"Here lies a lawyer and an honest man...""Ach, who'd ever think..." he murmered, "there'd be enough room fer two men in that one wee (8 comments)
Street signs warning Romanian drivers to be careful of drunken pedestrians lying on roads were erected by road safety chiefs worried about the "despairing" levels of accidents. Officials in a town called Pecica apparently ordered the bright red signs, complete with the phrase "Attention - Drunks". Boy, they sure know how to have a good time in Romania! LOL (17 comments)

100 mph Goat - 03/01/10 03:41 PM
Two rednecks are out hunting, and as they are walking along they come upon a huge hole in the ground. They approach it and are amazed by the size of it. The first hunter says "Wow, that's some hole; I can't even see the bottom. I wonder how deep it is."The second hunter says," I don't know, let's throw something down and listen to see how long it takes to hit bottom." The first hunter says "There's an old automobile transmission here, give me a hand and we'll throw it in and see." So they pick it up and carry it (7 comments)
Vatican Humor - 03/01/10 03:32 PM
After getting all of Pope Benedict's luggage loaded into the limo (and he doesn't travel light), the driver notices the Pope is still standing on the curb. ' Excuse me, Your Holiness, ' says the driver, ' Would you please take your seat so we can leave? ' ' Well, to tell you the truth, ' says the Pope, ' they never let me drive at the Vatican when I was a cardinal, and I'd really like to drive today. ' ' I'm sorry, Your Holiness, but I cannot let you do that. I'd lose my job! What if something should happen? ' protests (4 comments)
