Subtle Cartoons

Swimming for the Elderly



The bride tells her husband,
"Honey, you know I'm a virgin
and I don't know anything about sex.
Can you explain it to me first?"
"OK, Sweetheart. Putting it simply,
we will call your private place 'the prison'
and call my private thing 'the prisoner'.
So what we do is: put the prisoner in the prison."
And then they made love for the first time.
Afterwards, the guy is lying face up on the bed, smiling with satisfaction.
Nudging him, his bride giggles,
"Honey the prisoner seems to have escaped."
Turning on his side, he smiles.
"Then we will have to re-imprison him."
After the second time they spent, the guy reaches for his cigarettes
but the girl, thoroughly enjoying the new experience of making love,
gives him a suggestive smile,
"Honey, the prisoner is out again!"
The man rises to the occasion,
but with the unsteady legs of a recently born foal.
Afterwards, he lays back on the bed, totally exhausted.
She nudges him and says, "Honey, the prisoner escaped again."
Limply turning his head, He YELLS at her,
"Hey, its not a life sentence!"

A flock of sheep are romping in a field, happily going "baa baa"
to each other and discussing life as usual when suddenly they hear a "moo mooooo!"
They look around and see only sheep.
They carry on playing as before.
"Moooooo moooooo moooooo!"
One sheep can hear it all too clearly next to him.
He shuffles away a little from his friend, a worried look on his face,
and then asks, "Georgie, why are you mooing?
You're a sheep. Sheep go 'baa!'"
His friend replies gladly,
"I know. I thought I would learn a foreign language!" --

Parallel Lines
The film must be no more than three minutes long-
It must be as cinematic as possible-
It must feature the following dialogue and no other lines
What is that?'
'It's a unicorn',
'Never seen one up close before',
'Get away, get away',
'I'm Sorry.'


Two Christians were lost in the Sahara desert .
One is David, the other is Michael.
They were dying of hunger and thirst when they suddenly came upon an oasis ,
with what looked like an minaret of a mosque in the middle .
David said to Michael :
“Look, let’s pretend we are Muslim,
otherwise these Arabs are going to kill us .
I am going to call myself Mohammed.”
Michael refused to change his name , he said :
” My name is Michael , and I will not pretend to be other than but what I am . …Michael.”
The Imam of the mosque received both well and asked about their names.
David said : “My name is Mohammed.”
Michael said : “My name is Michael. ”
The Imam turned to the helpers of the mosque and said :
“Please bring some food and water for Michael only.”
Then he turned to the other and said:
“Well Mohammed I hope you are aware
that we are still in the holy month of Ramadan.”

Noah’s Ark
“Listen up!” Noah said in a demanding voice.
“There will be NO sex on this trip.
All of you males, take off your peckers and hand it to my sons.
I will sit over there and write you a receipt.
After we see land, you can get your peckers back.”
After about a week Mr. Rabbit stormed into his wife’s cage and was very excited.
“Quick!” he said. “Get on my shoulders and look out the window
to see if there is any land out there!”
Mrs. Rabbit got onto his shoulders and looked out the window.
“Sorry, no land yet.”
“Shit!” and out went Mr. Rabbit.
This went on every day for a week until Mrs. Rabbit got fed up with him.
“What is the matter with you? You know it will rain for forty days and nights.
Only after the water has drained will we be able to see land.
Why are you acting so excited every day?”
“Look!” said Mr. Rabbit with a sinister look on his face
as he held out a piece of, paper,
“I got the donkey’s receipt!!”

Blast from the Past


Jacob is one of the lucky ones because he's the only one of his family
to have survived two years in a concentration camp.
He's now nearing ninety and his only remaining joy is the national lottery,
which he's been playing for years without success.
But then he wins the big one, a prize of $10 million,
and a journalist from the Times calls on him for a story.
Jacob tells him, "As I'm the only one in my family to have survived concentration camp,
this has helped me decide how to make use of my large win.
So I've decided to donate $5 million to the Save the Children Fund,
$3 million to the Simon Wiesenthal Center,
$750,000 to the Jewish Museum,
$750,000 Hadassah Hospital and $500,000 to be shared amongst my friends.
I'm also thinking of donating $1 from my pocket to the Nazi party."
The journalist is surprised.
"But Jacob, how can you think of donating even $1 to the Nazi party
after everything that's happened to you and your family?"
Jacob rolls up his sleeve, points to his arm, smiles and replies,
'"It's only fair. They gave me the winning numbers." --

Two blondes were playing golf at a foggy par three,
and could see the flag, but not the green.
Each hit their ball anyway.
When they walked to the green,
they discovered one about three feet from the cup,
while the other somehow had gone directly in.
They tried to figure out which ball belonged to who,
since they wereboth using Titleist number threes.
Unable to decide, they returned to the Club House
and asked the golf pro for a ruling.
After hearing their story and congratulating them both on their superb shots
under such adverse conditions he asked,
"OK, so who was playing the yellow ball?"

Three blondes were sitting by the side of a river holding fishing poles
with the lines in the water.
A game warden came up behind them, tapped one on the shoulder and said,
"Excuse me, ladies; I'd like to see your fishing licenses."
"We don't have any." replied the first blonde
."Well, if you're going to fish, you need fishing licenses."
"But officer," replied the second blonde, "we aren't fishing
We all have magnets at the end of our lines
and we're collecting debris off the bottom of the river."
The warden lifted up all the lines and, sure enough,
there were magnets tied on the end of each line.
"Well, I know of no law against it," said the warden, "take all the debris you want."
And with that, he left.As soon as he was out of sight,
the three blondes started laughing hysterically.
"What a dumb cop," the second blonde said to the other two,
"doesn't he know that there are steelhead trout in this river?!"






My wife, a registered nurse,
once fussed over every pain or mishap that came my way.
Recently, however, I got an indication that the honeymoon is over.
I was about to fix the attic fan,
and as I lifted myself from the ladder into the attic,
I scratched my forehead on a crossbeam.
Crawling along, I picked up splinters in both hands,
and I cut one hand replacing the fan belt.
On the way down the ladder,
I missed the last two rungs and turned my ankle.
When I limped into the kitchen, my wife took one look and said,
"Are those your good pants?"

Chocolate is a Vegetable
Chocolate is derived from cocoa beans.
Bean = vegetable.
Sugar is derived from either sugar CANE or sugar BEETS.
Both are plants, which places them in the vegetable category.
Thus, chocolate is a vegetable.
Chocolate candy is a health food:
It contains vegetables.
Doctors tell us vegetables are a good source of fiber.
It contains milk.
Milk is good for building strong bones and teeth.
Other healthy chocolates include fruit (high fiber):
Chocolate-covered raisins. Chocolate cherries. Chocolate-covered orange slices.
Chocolate-covered strawberries.
Chocolate and preservatives:
Chocolate has many preservatives.
Preservatives make you look younger.
Chocolate and calories:
A nice box of chocolates can provide your total daily intake of calories in one place.
Now, isn’t that handy?
PROBLEM: Chocolate melting on your hands.
ANSWER: You’re eating it too slowly.
PROBLEM: How to get 2 pounds of chocolate home from the store in a hot car.
ANSWER: Eat it in the parking lot.
Eat a chocolate bar before each meal.
It’ll take the edge off your appetite, and you’ll eat less.
Put ‘eat chocolate’ at the top of your list of things to do today.
That way, at least you’ll get one thing done.
If not for chocolate, there would be no need for control top pantyhose.
An entire garment industry would be devastated. You can’t let that happen, can you?
‘Stressed’ spelled backward is ‘desserts’.

Warning...naughty Joke

A local bean farmer was blessed with a wonderful crop this fall.
In fact he had so many beans, he needed to unload them somehow.
With all the hoopla about the upcoming Super Bowl,
he decided that would be a good venue to reach more people.
With this in mind he went to the local TV station to speak with the advertising manager.
The farmer said, "I would like to purchase a minute or two during the Super Bowl
to advertise my wonderful beans.
I have such a bountiful crop of beans of all kinds;
pinto beans, lima beans, navy beans, red beans..."
The sales manager said, "Ok, Ok, I get the message.
And what would you be able to pay for this amount of prime advertising time?"
The farmer scratched his beard, looked off, then said, very solemnly,
"I'd be willing to go as high as $300 to reach those folks."
"$300?" the manager yelled,
"You must be out of your mind!!!
The current sponsors pay through the nose to get the exposure of the Super Bowl!
For example, the makers of Kotex pay MILLIONS of dollars to reach the audience!"
The farmer very evenly replied,
"I'm sure that's right.
But those people are out for blood.
I'm just farting around."

One of my two favorite things! You scored again, Phil. I also didn't have that cartoon despite the fact that Reynolds is one of my favorite cartoonists (along with Glasbergen). HUGS!

The first time ever I heard the beautiful voice of Israel Kamakawiwo was while shopping in a clothing store (His song "Somewhere over the rainbow" was playing over the loudspeaker.

I searched like a trooper, but couldn't find that song - - now that song is heard on the radio almost every day, but still I'll stop and listen.. May his soul rest in peace.

Please Phil, just remember who you are when you wake up, if not,, I'll be missing your funny blog and all the golden oldies ;-)

Hi Phil,
I am really enjoying your blogs. I especially like your posts of Elvis and Roy Orbison! I was lucky enough to grow up in their era. . . they were the BEST!
