This week, a compendium of wit, wisdom and neat stuff you can tell at parties. Enjoy!

Eye Witness

A disguised robber burst into a Texas bank and forced the tellers to load a sack full of cash. On his way out the door, a brave customer grabbed the hood and pulled it off, revealing the robber's face.

The robber shot the customer without a moment's hesitation.

He then looked around the bank and noticed one of the tellers looking straight at him. The robber instantly shot him also.

Everyone else, by now very scared, looked intently down at the floor in silence.

The robber yelled, "Well, did anyone else see my face?"

There are a few moments of utter silence in which everyone was plainly not about to speak. Then one old man tentatively raised his hand and said, "My wife got a pretty good look at you."

Fooling old people is so easy!

The Marines

A Marine squad was marching north of Fallujah when they came upon an Iraqi terrorist who was badly injured and unconscious. On the opposite side of the road was an American Marine in a similar but less serious state.

The Marine was conscious and alert and as first aid was given to both men, the squad leader asked the injured Marine what had happened.

The Marine reported, "I was heavily armed and moving north along the highway here, and coming south was a heavily armed insurgent. We saw each other and both took cover in the ditches along the road.

I yelled to him that Saddam Hussein was a miserable, lowlife scum bag who got what he deserved. He yelled back that Barack Obama is a lying, good-for-nothing, left wing Commie who isn't even an American.

So I said that Osama Bin Laden dresses and acts like a frigid, mean-spirited lesbian! He retaliated by yelling, "Oh yeah? Well, so does Nancy Pelosi!

And, there we were, in the middle of the road, shaking hands, when a truck hit us

Why I’m Divorced

Last week was my birthday and I didn't feel very well waking up on that morning.

I went downstairs for breakfast hoping my wife would be pleasant and say, 'Happy Birthday!,' and possibly have a small present for me.

As it turned out, she barely said good morning, let alone 'Happy Birthday.'

I thought, well, that's marriage for you, but the kids .... they will remember.

My kids came bounding down stairs to breakfast and didn't say a word. So when I left for the office, I felt pretty low and somewhat despondent.

As I walked into my office, my secretary, Kay, said, 'Good Morning Boss, and by the way Happy Birthday!'

It felt a little better that at least someone had remembered.

I worked until one o'clock, when Kay knocked on my door and said, 'You know, It's such a beautiful day outside, and it is your Birthday, what do you say we go out to lunch, just you and me?'

I said, 'Thanks, Kay, that's the greatest thing I've heard all day. Let's go!'

We went to lunch.

But we didn't go where we normally would go. She chose instead a quiet bistro with a private table. We had two martinis each and I enjoyed the meal tremendously. On the way back to the office, Kay said, 'You know, it's such a beautiful day - we don't need to go straight back to the office, do we?'

I responded, 'I guess not. What do you have in mind?'

She said, 'Let's drop by my apartment, it's just around the corner.'

After arriving at her apartment, Jane turned to me and said, 'Boss, if you don't mind, I'm going to step into the bedroom for just a moment. I'll be right back.'

'OK,' I nervously replied.

She went into the bedroom and, after a couple of minutes, she came out carrying a huge birthday cake ... followed by my wife, my kids, and dozens of my friends and coworkers, all singing 'Happy Birthday.'

And I just sat there .... on the couch ....


Personal Hygiene

--While ears need to be cleaned regularly, this is a job that should be done in private using one's OWN truck keys.

--Proper use of toiletries can forestall bathing for several days. However, if you live alone, deodorant is a waste of good money.

--Dirt and grease under the fingernails is a social no-no, as they tend to detract from a woman's jewelry and alter the tastes of finger foods.

--Plucking unwanted nose hair is time-consuming work. A cigarette lighter and a small tolerance for pain can accomplish the same goal and save hours. It's a good idea to keep a bucket of water handy when using this method.


--When decanting wine, make sure that you tilt the paper cup and pour slowly so as not to "bruise" the fruit of the vine.

--If drinking directly from the bottle, always hold it with your fingers covering the label.

--Remember to leave a generous tip for good service. After all, their mobile home costs just as much as yours.


--A centerpiece for the table should never be anything prepared by a taxidermist.

--Do not allow the dog to eat at the table no matter how good his manners are.

--Be considerate of your guests. Point out in advance where the injury-threatening springs are located on the sofa.
--If your dog falls in love with a guest's leg, have the decency to leave them alone for a few minutes.

DATING (Outside the Family)

--Always offer to bait your date's hook, especially on the first date.

--No matter how broke you are, never take your date flowers that were stolen from a cemetery.

--Be aggressive. Let her know you are interested: "I've been wanting to go out with you since I read that stuff on the men's bathroom wall two years ago."

--Establish with her parents what time she is expected back. Some will say 10:00. Others might say "Monday." If the latter is the answer, it's the boy's responsibility to get her to school on time.

--If a girl's name does not appear regularly on a bathroom wall, water tower, or an overpass, odds are good that the date will end in frustration.

--Even if you can't get a date, avoid kidnapping. It's bad for your reputation.

--Always allow your date first pick of any roadkill you run across.


--Crying babies should be taken to the lobby and picked up immediately after the movie has ended.
--Refrain from talking to characters on the screen. Tests have proven they can't hear you.


--Livestock usually is a poor choice for a wedding gift.

--Is it okay to bring a date to a wedding? Not if you are the groom.

--When dancing, never remove undergarments; no matter how hot it is.

--Kissing the bride for more than 5 seconds may get you cut.

--A bridal veil made of window screen is not only cost-effective, but also a proven fly deterrent.

--For the groom, at least rent a tux. A leisure suit with a cummerbund and a clean bowling shirt can create a natty appearance. Though uncomfortable, say yes to socks and shoes for this special occasion.


--Dim your headlights for approaching vehicles, even if the gun is loaded and the deer is in sight.

--When approaching a four-way stop, the vehicle with the largest tires always has the right of way.

--Never tow another car using pantyhose and duct tape.

--When sending your wife down the road with a gas can, it is impolite to ask her to bring back beer.

--Never relieve yourself from a moving vehicle, especially when driving.

--Do not remove the seats from the car so that all your kids can fit in.

--Do not lay rubber while traveling in a funeral procession.


--Never take a beer to a job interview or ask if they press charges.

--Always identify people in your yard before shooting at them.

--Always say "Excuse me" after getting sick in someone else's car.

--It's considered tacky to take a cooler to church.

--Even if you're certain that you are included in the will, it's considered tacky to drive a U-Haul to the funeral home.

--The socially refined never fish coins out of public toilets, especially if other people are around.

--If you have to vacuum the bed, it's time to change the sheets.

--Always provide an alibi to the police for family members.

I can't decide which one is us.
It isn't a problem for one like me,
But sure is hell for us both to agree

The Blonde

A girl walked up to the information desk at Palomr Hospital and asked to see the "upturn."

"I think you mean the 'intern,' don't you?" asked the nurse on duty.

"Yes," said the girl. "I want to have a 'contamination.'"

"You mean 'examination,'" the nurse corrected her.

"Well I want to go to the 'fraternity ward,' anyway."
"You must mean the maternity ward", said the nurse.

To which the girl replied: "Upturn, intern; contamination,examination; fraternity , maturnity....what's the difference? All I know is I haven't demonstrated in two months and I think I'm stagnant."

Two Drops of Water

A lady goes to the bar on a cruise ship and orders a Scotch with two drops of water.

As the bartender gives her the drink she says, "I'm on this cruise to celebrate my 80th birthday and it's today..."

The bartender says, 'Well, since it's your birthday, I'll buy you a drink."

"In fact, this one is on me."

As the woman finishes her drink, the woman to her right says, "I would like to buy you a drink, too."

The old woman says, "Thank you."

"Bartender, I want a Scotch with two drops of water."

"Coming up," says the bartender

As she finishes that drink, the man to her left says, "I would like to buy you one, too."

The old woman says, "Thank you."

"Bartender, I want another Scotch with two drops of water."

'Coming right up,' the bartender says.

As he gives her the drink, he says, "Ma'am, I'm dying of curiosity. Why the Scotch with only two drops of water?"

The old woman replies!

"Sonny, when you're my age, you've learned how to hold your liquor. Holding your water, however, is a whole other issue."
