POSTERS

















The bad and ugly king had a beautiful girl as a captive.
  Though her beauty shone like a thousand moons,
 the dress she was forced to wear was very unbecoming.
  She waited day and night, 
looking out with hope out the dungeon window, 
searching for the knight who would free her.
  However, every knight was scared away by her dress,
 which, as I've said before, was very ugly. 
She was crying in hopelessness when the evil king jeered, 
"See, I told you no knight would rescue a damsel in dis dress!"      








Several years ago, Andy was sentenced to prison.
 During his stay, he got along well with the guards and all his fellow inmates. 
The warden new that, deep down,
 Andy was a good person. 
So, the warden made arrangements for the inmate 
to learn a trade while doing his time.
 Some three years later,
 Andy was recognized as one of the best carpenters in the local area.
 Often, he would be given a weekend pass 
to do odd jobs for citizens of the community.
 And, he always reported back to prison by early Sunday evening. 
Andy was a model inmate. 
One day, the warden considered remodeling his kitchen,
 though he lacked the skills to build a set of kitchen cupboards
 and a large counter top. 
So, he called Andy into his office and asked him to do the job for him.
 To the warden's surprise, 
Andy simply refused to help.
 "But, you're an expert. Andy, I really need your help," said the warden. 
"Gosh, warden, I'd really like to help you,
 but counter fitting is what got me into prison in the first place."

The World is full of stupid people











A tourist in London decides to skip his tour group
 and explore the city on his own.

He wanders around, seeing the sights, 
occasionally stopping at a quaint British pub 
to soak up the local culture,
 chat with the locals,
 and have a few pints of stout.

After a while, he finds himself in a very nice neighborhood
 with big, stately residences..
.no pubs, no stores, no restaurants,
 and worst of all NO PUBLIC RESTROOMS.

He really, really has to go, after all those drinks.
 He finds a narrow side street,
 with high walls surrounding the adjacent buildings
 and decides to use the wall to solve his problem.

As he is unzipping, 
he is tapped on the shoulder by a London police officer,
 who says, "I say, sir, you simply cannot do that here, you know."

"I'm very sorry, officer," replies the tourist, 
"but I really, really have to go, 
and I just can't find a public restroom."

"Ah, yes," said the policeman."Just follow me".
 He leads the tourist down a back delivery alley to a gate,
 which he opens.
"In there," points the policeman.
 "Go ahead sir, anywhere you like."

The fellow enters and finds himself
 in the most beautiful garden he has ever seen.
 Manicured grass lawns, statuary, fountains, 
sculptured hedges, and huge beds of gorgeous flowers, 
all in perfect bloom.

Since he has the policeman's blessing, 
he relieves himself and feels much more comfortable.
 As he goes back through the gate,
 he says to the police officer,
 "That was really decent of you...
 is that what you call English hospitality?"

"No sir," replied the police officer, 
"that is what we call the French Embassy."

Have you ever wondered what the difference
 is between Grandmothers and Grandfathers? 
Well, here it is: 

There was this loving grandfather 
who always made a special effort to spend time
 with his son's family on weekends.
 Every Saturday morning he would take his 5-year-old granddaughter 
out for a drive in the car for some quality time --
 pancakes, ice cream, candy--
 just him and his granddaughter. 
One particular Saturday,
 however, he had a terrible cold
 and could not get out of bed. 
He knew his granddaughter always looked forward
 to their drives and would be very disappointed
. Luckily, his wife came to the rescue 
and said that she would take their granddaughter 
for her weekly drive and breakfast. 
When they returned, 
the little girl anxiously ran upstairs to see her grandfather 
who was still in bed. 
"Well, did you enjoy your ride with grandma?" he asked. 
Not really, PaPa, it was boring.
 We didn't see a single asshole, queer, lesbian, 
piece of crap, horse's ass, socialist left wing Obamalover, 
blind bastard, dipshit, Muslim camel humper 
or son of a bitch anywhere we went!" 
We just drove around and Grandma smiled at everyone she saw. 
 I really didn't have any fun. 
Almost brings a tear to your eye, doesn't it?
