ROME (AP) — A video of a pair of dueling,
 dancing American priests studying in Rome has gone viral,
 following in the footsteps of a now-famous Italian nun 
whose Alicia Keyes-esque voice won her a singing contest
 and a record contract.
The Rev. David Rider, 29, of Hyde Park, New York,
 and the Rev. John Gibson, 28, of Milwaukee,
 first shot to Internet fame when they were filmed
 in April during a fundraiser at the North American College,
 the elite American seminary up the hill from the Vatican.
Rider warmed up the crowd with a lively tap-dance routine,
 only to be pushed aside by Gibson's fast-footed Irish dance.
 Soon they were battling it out, 
trying to impress the crowd.
At the back of the room,
 journalist Joan Lewis recorded the event 
and later posted on YouTube.
"All of a sudden the numbers started rising and rising,"
 Lewis told The Associated Press. 
The video has nearly 260,000 views.
Their Internet success has drawn comparisons
 to Sr. Cristina Scuccia,
 who won the Italian edition of "The Voice" in June 
with a series of unadorned pop song performances,
 in full habit. 
Her first album features a cover of Madonna's
 "Like a Virgin."

 but they were in for a greater shock when
 they saw what Scuccia looked like

iPad Horror Halloween Magic - iSimon

Magician and performance artist Simon Pierro
 shares an iPad Halloween Horror story
 as he displays some wonderful sleight of hand skills
 during this digital magic performance
. Simon is a wonderful entertainer

A cabbie picks up a Nun.

She gets into the cab, and notices that the
 VERY handsome cab driver won't stop staring at her.

She asks him why he is staring.

He replies: 'I have a question to ask you
 but I don't want to offend you.'

She answers, 'My son, you cannot offend me.
 When you're as old as I am and have been a nun
 as long as I have, you get a chance to see 
and hear just about everything. 
I'm sure that there's nothing you could say
 or ask that I would find offensive.'

'Well, I've always had a fantasy 
to have a nun kiss me.'

She responds, 
'Well, let's see what we can do a about that:
 1, you have to be single 
and 2, you must be Catholic.'

The cab driver is very excited and says,
 'Yes, I'm single and Catholic!'

'OK' the nun says.
 'Pull into the next alley.'

The nun fulfills his fantasy with a kiss
 that would make a hooker blush.

When they get back on the road, 
the cab driver starts crying.

'My dear child,' says the nun, 
'why are you crying?'

'Forgive me but I've sinned.
 I lied and I must confess, 
I'm married and I'm Jewish.'

The nun says, 
'That's OK......
 My name is Gary
 and I'm going to a Halloween party.'

I walked into a coffee shop to find 
the woman behind the counter 
with a bunch of sponges pinned to her uniform.

"I'm assuming this is a costume,
 but just what are you supposed to be?" I asked.

The waitress responded proudly, 

"I'm self-absorbed."

 Six year old Annie returns home from school
 and says that today she had her first
 family planning lesson at school.
Her mother, very interested, asks: 
 "Oh... How did it go?"

"I nearly died of shame!" she answers. 
 "Sam from down the street says the stork brings babies. 
 Sally next door said you can buy babies at the orphanage.
  Pete in my class says you can buy babies at the hospital."

Her mother answers laughingly, 
"But that’s no reason to be ashamed."

"No... but I can't tell them that we were so poor
 that you and daddy had to make me yourselves!"

A cowboy walks into a bar and orders a whiskey.
 When the bartender delivers the drink,
 the cowboy asks, 
"Where is everybody?"

The bartender replies,
 "They've gone to the hanging."

 Who are they hanging?"

"Brown Paper Pete,"
 the bartender replied.

"What kind of a name is that?"
 the cowboy asked.

"Well," says the bartender, 
"he wears a brown paper hat, brown paper shirt,
 brown paper trousers and brown paper shoes."

"How bizarre," said the cowboy. 
"What are they hanging him for?"

 answered the bartender.

Louis Armstrong and Danny Kaye perform 
“When The Saints Go Marching In” 
in this entertaining clip from the 1959 film “The Five Pennies”

with a twist as they name composers and musicians who would play 
“on the day that the saints go marching in”.

No matter which side you are on in this matter,
 this is funny.
 This guy is hilarious...
 Here is an e-mail sent to Clarence Page
 of the Chicago Tribune after an article 
he  published concerning a name change
 for the Washington Redskins.      

Dear Mr. Page...

I always love your articles
 and I generally agree with them. 

I agree with our Native American population.
 I am highly insulted by the racially charged
 name of the Washington Redskins. 
One might argue that to name a professional football team
 after Native Americans would exalt them as fine warriors
, but nay, nay.
 We must be careful not to offend,
 and in the spirit of political correctness and courtesy, 
we must move forward.

Let's ditch the Kansas City Chiefs, the Atlanta Braves
 and the Cleveland Indians.
  If your shorts are in a wad because of the reference
 the name Redskins makes to skin color, 
then we need to get rid of the Cleveland Browns.

The Carolina Panthers obviously were named to keep the memory
 of militant Blacks from the 60's alive. 
It's offensive to us white folk.

The New York Yankees offend the Southern population.
 Do you see a team named for the Confederacy? 
 There is no room for any reference to that tragic war 
that cost this country so many young men's lives.

I am also offended by the blatant references 
to the Catholic religion among our sports team names. 
 Totally inappropriate to have the New Orleans Saints, 
the Los Angeles Angels or the San Diego Padres.

Then there are the team names that glorify criminals
 who raped and pillaged. 
We are talking about the horrible Oakland Raiders,
 the Minnesota Vikings, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 
and the Pittsburgh Pirates!

Now, let us address those teams that clearly 
send the wrong message to our children. 
 The San Diego Chargers promote irresponsible fighting
 or even spending habits. 
 Wrong message to our children.

The New York Giants and the San Francisco Giants
promote obesity, a growing childhood epidemic.
 Wrong message to our children.

The Cincinnati Reds promote downers/barbiturates.
 Wrong message to our children.

The Milwaukee Brewers.
 Well that goes without saying. 
Wrong message to our children.

So, there you go.
  We need to support any legislation that comes
 out to rectify this travesty,
 because the government will likely 
become involved with this issue,
   Just the kind of thing the do-nothing Congress loves.

 Thanks Gordon H

Odds and Ends

Three contractors are bidding to fix
 a broken fence at the White House.

One is from Chicago, another is from Kentucky,
 and the third is from New Orleans.
All three go with a White House official
 to examine the fence.

The New Orleans contractor takes out a tape measure 
and does some measuring, 
then works some figures with a pencil.

"Well," he says, "I figure the job will run about $9,000.
 That's $4,000 for materials, 
$4,000 for my crew and $1,000 profit for me."

The Kentucky contractor also does some measuring
 and figuring, then says,
 "I can do this job for $7,000. 
That's $3,000 for materials, $3,000 for my crew 
and $1,000 profit for me."

The Chicago contractor doesn't measure or figure,
 but leans over to the White House official and whispers, 

The official, incredulous, says,
 "You didn't even measure like the other guys.
 How did you come up with such a high figure?

"The Chicago contractor whispers back,
 "$10,000 for me, $10,000 for you,
 and we hire the guy from Kentucky to fix the fence."

"Done!" replies the government official.

And that, my friends,
 is how the Government Stimulus plan worked.

 Four boxes keep us free:
 the soap box, the ballot box, the jury box,
 and the cartridge box.

Some Kick Ass Women

On a Lighter note


A husband and wife were about to leave for a costume party, 
when the wife wasn't feeling very good. 
 She insisted that he leave without her.
  He reluctantly agreed.

An hour later, she was feeling better
 and began to wonder how her husband
 would act if she wasn't around.
She borrowed her friend's costume 
and car and went to the party.
She saw  her husband flirting, 
dancing and grabbing women's butts.
She grabbed him, took him to the dance floor
 and grabbed his butt. 
 Then she took him to the back seat of the car.
  Then she rushed home, 
took off her costume and got into bed.
Later, her husband arrived at home.
She asked him, "How was the party, honey?"
He replied, "It was not fun without you.
  I didn't enjoy myself at all. 
 As a matter of fact, shortly after I arrived,
 some of the guys and I all went to a back room 
and played poker all night."
As she begins thinking, in disbelief, he continues,
 "So I gave my costume to your brother.
  He said that he had a great time."


Wheelbarrow races never looked so good.
