How men talk to their wives

On all the Blogs that I have been reading lately every one
seems to be obsessed with this Heirhead/airhead
So here is a collection of some of the stuff floating around
The sooner they lock her up the better

According to Paris Hilton, she is a "victim."
The day after she was sentenced to 45 days in
the slammer for violating her probation
by driving with a suspended license,
Hilton walked outside her house
and told a gaggle of camera people,
"I told the truth yesterday.
I feel that I was treated unfairly."
Hilton called the sentence
"both cruel and unwarranted"
and added "I don't deserve this."

Todays cartoons
Two elderly ladies were in the
supermarket at a long checkout line.
They were discussing hair care.
Apparently the husband of one of them
had a particularly bad case of dandruff.
The other one said,
"My husband used to have that problem
until I gave him Head and Shoulders.
And that cured it."
The other one thought for a minute,
and with a puzzled look replied,
"How do you give shoulders?"

Pickup Line................

A guy walks into a bar
and sees a gorgeous woman nursing a drink.
Walking up behind her he says,
"Hi there, good lookin'. How's it going?"
Having already downed a few power drinks,
she turns around, faces him,
looks him straight in the eye and says,
"Listen up, buddy. I screw anybody,
any time, anywhere, your place, my place,
in the car, front door, back door,
on the ground, standing up, sitting down,
naked or with clothes on, dirty, clean ...
It just doesn't matter to me.
I've been doing it ever since I got out of college
and I just flat-ass love it."
Eyes now wide with interest,
he responds
,"No kidding. I'm a lawyer too.
What firm are you with?"

A Clear Explanation of Tax Cuts
This almost makes sense.
This was written by a UGA professor
It is interesting to hear a professor
present a realistic view of how economics really work.
CLEAR EXPLANATION OF TAX CUTS.........................
Sometimes politicians, journalists and others exclaim;
"It's just a tax cut for the rich!"
and it is just accepted to be fact,
without questioning it
But what does that really mean?
Just in case you are not completely
clear on this issue, the following might help.
Let's put tax cuts in terms
everyone can understand.
Suppose that every day,
ten men go out for beer
and the bill for all ten comes to $100.
If they paid their bill
the way we pay our taxes,
it would go something like this:
The first four men (the poorest) would pay nothing.
The fifth would pay $1.
The sixth would pay $3.
The seventh would pay $7.
The eighth would pay $12.
The ninth would pay $18.
The tenth man (the richest) would pay $59.
So, that's what they decided to do.
The ten men drank in the bar every day
and seemed quite happy with the arrangement,
until one day, the owner threw them a curve
"Since you are all such good customers," he said,
"I'm going to reduce the cost of
your daily beer by $20."
Drinks for the ten now cost just $80.
The group still wanted to pay their bill the way
we pay our taxes so the first four men were unaffected.
They would still drink for free
What about the other six men,
those paying the tab?
How could they divide the $20
windfall so that everyone would get his 'fair share?'
They realized that $20 divided by six is $3.33.
But if they subtracted that from everybody's share,
then the fifth man and the sixth man
would each end up being paid to drink his beer.
So, the bar owner
suggested that it would be fair to reduce each man's
bill by roughly the same amount,
and he proceeded
to work out the amounts each should pay.
And so:
The fifth man, like the first four, now paid nothing (100% savings).
The sixth now paid $2 instead of $3 (33%savings).
The seventh now paid $5 instead of $7 (28%savings).
The eighth now paid $9 instead of $12 (25% savings).
The ninth now paid $14 instead of $18 (22% savings).
The tenth now paid $49 instead of $59 (16% savings).
Each of the six was better off than before.
And the first four continued to drink for free.
But once outside the restaurant,
the men began to compare their savings.
"I only got a dollar out of the $20,"declared the sixth man.
He pointed to the tenth man," but he got $10!"
"Yeah, that's right," exclaimed the fifth man.
"I only saved a dollar too,
It's unfair that he got ten times more than I!"
"That's true!!" shouted the seventh man.
"Why should
he get $10 back when I got only two?
The wealthy get all the breaks!"
"Wait a minute," yelled the first four
men in unison.
"We didn't get anything at all.
The system exploits the poor!"
The nine men surrounded the tenth and beat him up.
The next night the tenth man didn't show up for drinks,
so the nine sat down and had beers without him.
But when it came time to pay the bill,
they discovered something important.
They didn't have enough money
between all of them for even half of the bill!
And that, boys and girls, journalists and college professors,
is how our tax system works.
The people
who pay the highest taxes get the most benefit from a tax reduction.
Tax them too much, attack them for being wealthy
f and they just may not show up anymore.
In fact, they might start drinking overseas
where the atmosphere is somewhat friendlier.
