This is the last post for several days as I am off to Sydney/Melbourne for a few days

On a flight getting ready to depart for Detroit...
Jack was already seated on the plane when a guy took the seat beside him.
The guy was an emotional wreck, pale, hands shaking, moaning in fear.
"What's the matter?" Jack asked.
"I've been transferred to Detroit; there's crazy people there.
They've got lots of shootings, gangs, race riots, drugs,
poor public schools, and the highest crime rate."
Jack replied, "I've lived in Detroit all my life. It's not as bad as the media says.
Find a nice home, go to work, mind your own business,
and enroll your kids in a nice private school.
It's as safe a place as anywhere in the world."
The guy relaxed and stopped shaking and said,
"Oh, thank you. I've been worried to death.
But if you live there and say it's OK, I'll take your word for it.
What do you do for a living?"
"Me?" said Jack. "I'm a tail gunner on a Budweiser delivery truck

The boss was complaining in our staff meeting the other day
that he wasn't getting any respect.
The next day,he brought a small sign that read,
"I'm the Boss!"
He then taped it to his office door.
Later that day when he returned from lunch,
he found that someone had taped a note to the sign that said,
"Your wife called, and she wants her sign back!"

Bert Kaempfert........That Happy Feeling
How Dogs and Women are the Same:
Both look stupid in hats.
Both can eat 5 pounds of chocolate in one sitting.
Both tend to have "hip" problems.
Both look good in a fur coat.
Both are good at pretending that they're listening to every word you say.
Neither believe that silence is golden.
Both constantly want back rubs.
You can never tell what either of them is thinking.
Both put too much value on kissing.

How Dogs and Men are the Same:
Both take up too much space on the bed.
Both have irrational fears about vacuum cleaning.
Both are threatened by their own kind.
Both like to chew wood. (Huh? Is that a gay joke?)
Both mark their territory.
Neither tells you what's bothering them.
Both tend to smell riper with age.
The smaller ones tend to be more nervous.
Neither does dishes.
Both fart shamelessly.
Neither of them notice when you get your hair cut.
Both like dominance games.
Both are suspicious of the postman.
Neither knows how to talk on the telephone.
Neither understands what you see in cats.

Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades.
Over the years, they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures.
Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards.
One day, they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said,
'Now don't get mad at me ..
I know we've been friends for a long time, but I just can't think of your name!
I've thought and thought, but I can't remember it. Please tell me what your name is.
'Her friend glared at her.
For at least three minutes she just stared and glared at her.
Finally she said, 'How soon do you need to know?'

The Angry King
Once, long ago, a king summoned all his provincial rulers to his castle.
He was in a rather beligerent mood,
and wanted to scare them into giving him extra taxes.
Unknown to him, they met in secret on the way,
and decided that they should agree to pay the extra,
but they would at first pretend to refuse,
so they could try to bargain down the actual amount extra they would have to pay.
They arrived at the king’s castle, and gathered in the audence chamber.
The king made his demands, and as agreed, they started to refuse.
Unfortunately, they hadn’t realised just how beligerent the king’s mood was:
as soon as they started to refuse, he got angry,
and ordered his guards to kill them on the spot.
More than half of them were slain before they even realised what was happening,
and the others had to do some very quick grovelling to survive.
After everything had settled down, those who remained explained to the king their plan,
and the king was filled with remorse for his hasty actions.
The moral of the story?
Don’t hatchet your counts before they chicken.

Seniors - don't mess with them!
Two businessmen in Florida were sitting down for a break in their soon-to-be new store.
As yet, the store wasn't ready, with only a few shelves set up.
One said to the other,
'I bet any minute now some senior is going to walk by,
put his face to the window, and ask what we're selling.'
No sooner were the words out of his mouth when,
sure enough, a curious senior walked to the window, had a peek, and in a soft voice asked
"What are you sellin' here?"
One of the men replied sarcastically,
"We're selling ass-holes
."Without skipping a beat, the old timer said,
"You're doing well. Only two left."
