    The local news station was interviewing an 80-year-old lady because she had just gotten married for the fourth time. The interviewer asked her questions about her life, about what it felt like to be marrying again at 80, and then about her new husband’s occupation. “He’s a funeral director,” she answered. “Interesting,” the newsman thought. He then asked her if she wouldn’t mind telling him a little about her first three husbands and what they did for a living. She paused for a few moments, needing time to reflect on all those years. After a short time, a smile came...

    A lawyer with a wife and 12 children needed to move because his rental agreement was terminated by the owner, who wanted to reoccupy the home. He was having a lot of difficulty finding a new house. When he said that he had 12 children no one would rent a home to him, because they felt that the children would destroy the place. He couldn’t say that he had no children, because he couldn’t lie; we all know lawyers cannot and do not lie. So he sent his wife for a walk to the cemetery with 11 of their kids....

    During my physical, my doctor asked me about my daily activity level. So I described a typical day this way: “Well, yesterday afternoon, I waded along the edge of a lake, escaped from wild dogs in the heavy brush, marched up and down several rocky hills, stood in a patch of poison ivy, crawled out of quicksand, and jumped away from an aggressive rattlesnake.” Inspired by my story, the doctor said, “You must be some outdoorsman!” “No,” I replied, “I’m just a $hitty golfer.”

    A Pharmacist walks in to the shop & notices a guy leaning heavily against a wall. The owner asks the clerk: "What's with the guy over there by the wall?" The clerk responds: "Well, he came in here this morning to get something for his cough. I couldn't find the cough syrup, so I gave him an entire bottle of laxatives". The owner, wide-eyed and excited shouts: "You idiot! You can't treat a cough with a bottle of laxatives". The clerk calmly responds: "Of course you can, look at him - he's afraid to cough."

    A cardiologist died and was given an elaborate funeral. A huge heart covered in flowers stood behind the casket during the service. Following the eulogy, the heart opened, and the casket rolled inside. The heart then closed, sealing the doctor in the beautiful heart forever. At that point, one of the mourners burst into laughter. When all eyes stared at him, he said, “I’m sorry, I was just thinking of my own funeral.........I’m a gynecologist.” Then the proctologist fainted.

Please speak in English.” The farmer replied: “Use two hands, you’ll get more.”

    WHY IS IT THAT WE HAVE TO SPEAK ENGLISH? U.S. Navy Admiral was attending a Naval conference that included admirals from the U.S. English, Canadian, Australian, and French Navies. At a cocktail reception, he found himself standing with a group of half dozen or so officers that included personnel from most of the countries.

He then asked: "Why is it that we always have to speak English in these conferences rather than speaking...

    THE MIRACLE OF TOILET PAPER Fresh from the shower, my wife stands in front of the mirror complaining to me that her breasts are too small. Instead of characteristically telling her it's not so, I uncharacteristically come up with a suggestion. ‘If you want your breasts to grow, then every day take a piece of toilet paper and rub it between them for a few seconds.’ Willing to try anything, she fetches a piece of toilet paper and stands in front of the mirror, rubbing it between her breasts. ‘How long will this take?’ she asked. ‘They will grow larger...

    A tourist walked into a pet shop and was looking at the animals on display. While he was there, another customer walked in and said to the shopkeeper, "I'll have an AutoCAD monkey please."

After dinner, he goes into the kitchen to thank the chefs. He is met by two brothers, "Hello, I'm Brother Michael, and this is Brother Francis." "I'm very pleased to meet you. I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful dinner. The fish and chips were the best I've ever tasted. Out of curiosity, who cooked what?" Brother Michael replied, "Well, I'm the fish...

    WE NEED MORE GRANDMOTHERS IN COURT!!! Why Lawyers should never ask a witness a question if they aren't prepared for the answer: In a trial, a Southern small town prosecuting attorney called his first witness to the stand ... a grandmotherly, elderly woman. He approached her and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know me?" She responded, "Why, yes I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've know you since you were a young boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You...
