This week we lost Mick Edwards from ELO
I recently asked my friends' little girl what she
wanted to be when she grows up.
She said she wanted to be President of the United States.
Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there
So I asked her, "If you were President, what would be the first thing you would do?"
She replied, "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people..
.Her parents proudly beamed
."Wow...what a worthy goal," I told her
."But you don't have to wait until you're President to do that.
Tell you what - you can come over to my house and mow the lawn
pull weeds, and sweep my driveway, and I'll pay you $50.
Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out,
and you can give him the $50 to use toward food and a new house
." How about doing something Wonderful like that?
She thought that over for a few seconds,
then she looked me straight in the eye and asked,
"Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work,
and you can just pay him the $50?"
I said,
"Welcome to the Republican Party."
Her parents still aren't speaking to me.
Gotta love Steve Martin

Inner Peace
If you can start the day without caffeine,
If you can always be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,
If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,
If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,
If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,
If you can take criticism and blame without resentment
If you can conquer tension without medical help,
If you can relax without liquor,
If you can sleep without the aid of drugs,

Then you are probably the family Dog

Octopus Love

Blonde guy
A blonde guy goes to the big football game,
he has great seats on the 50 yard line, 8 rows up, perfect.
Just before kickoff he hears someone behind him yelling,
"Arnold, we're up here, Arnold!"
He turns around and misses the kickoff!
A short while later, just as the quarterback throws a long bomb,
the same guy starts yelling
,"Hey Arnold, we're up here, Arnold!!"
Again he turns around and again he misses the play
This goes on for every big play.
He hears the guy shouting
,"Hey Arnold, look up here!"
He turns around and misses the play.
Finally, fuming mad, he turns around,
pulls out his binoculars and scans the crowd
for the guy doing all the yelling.
He eventually spots him,
after missing yet another big play.
He runs up the stands,
nearly to the top of the stadium.
Pulls the guy out into the aisle,
picks him up by the lapels and shouts
"Shut-up, my name isn't Arnold!!"


Blast from the Past
"I think I'll go out to Alberta"


Miguel Rodriquez long suffered from insomnia.
It was a rare night that he slept more than an hour.
He had consulted numerous physicians in Mexico and the United States
but none had been able to help him.
Even the strongest sedatives could not give him a restful night of sleep.
One day, Miguel met and fell in love with a beautiful señorita named Esta Gonzales.
Now when he wants to sleep he just looks at her picture.
After all, Miguel has known from his childhood
that when you see Esta, you sleep. ------- Stan Kegel

A broccoli, a tomato and a yam were running in a race.
The broccoli got off to a great start, but being a green runner,
didn't have the strength to finish the race.
The yam and the tomato were neck and neck for the first stretch,
but the tomato quickly fell behind.
The yam was about to reach the end of the track,
but collapsed in exhaustion right before the finish line.
Over the course of an hour, the tomato ran the entire length of the race, and won.
Why was the tomato so successful?
The tomato paste itself! ------ Stan Kegel

A miracle healer invites two people up on stage to try to cure them.
The first man is named Simon,
and he's walked with crutches all his life.
The second man is named Paul and he has a lisp.
The healer sends them both behind a curtain,
says a little prayer, and then shouts:
"You're both healed! Simon, throw your crutches over the curtain."
The healer catches the crutches and the crowd cheers.
The healer continues: "Now, Paul! Say something!"
A voice comes from behind the curtain:
"Thimon'th fallen over!"





A guy visits a library and approaches the desk.
“Excuse me,” he says:
“Do you have the new self-help book for men with small dicks?”
The librarian replies: “No, it’s not in yet.”
“Yep, that’s the one,” says the man




"A man finally realizes that there is something abnormal about him
and goes to see a doctor.
The doctor examines him and says,
“Like everyone else, your brain is divided into two parts,
the left and the right.''
The abnormality is that on your left side there is nothing right,
and on the right side there is nothing left.”"

The one about the little girl wanting to be President was so priceless, that I just had to use it upon my own site! It spells the differences between traditional conservatives and the social engineers in very simple ideological terms.
