"I just restored your sense of taste Mr. Thompson," says the doctor.

So Mr. Thompson goes home very mad.

One month later, Mr. Thompson goes back to the doctor along with a new problem, "Doc," he starts, "I can't remember anything!"

The waiter said, "Chopsticks are provided only on request."

What's wrong with me, Doctor?"

The doctor looks her over for a couple of minutes, then calmly says, "Well, I can tell you that there ain't nothing wrong with your eyesight."

Husband-Shopping

A HusbandShopping Center has opened in Atlanta, where a woman can go to choose from among many men to be her husband. It is laid out in five floors, with the men increasing in positive attributes as you ascend. There is, however, a catch. You're only allowed in once. Once you open the door to any floor, you must choose a man from that floor. If you go up a floor, you can't go back down except to exit the building. So, a woman goes to the shopping center to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door says:

Floor 1: These men have jobs and love kids.

The woman reads the sign. "Well, that's better than not having jobs, or not loving kids, but I wonder what's further up?" So up she goes. The second floor sign says:


Floor 2: These men have high-paying jobs, love kids and are extremely good-looking.


"Hmmm, better," says the woman. "But I wonder what's further up?" The third floor sign reads:


Floor 3: These men have high-paying jobs, love kids, are extremely good-looking and help with the housework.


"Wow," says the woman, "very tempting. BUT, there's more further up!" And so again, she goes up. On the fourth floor the sign reads:


Floor 4: These men have high-paying jobs, love kids, are extremely good-looking, help with the housework and have a strong romantic streak.


"Oh, mercy me." (That's how women talk in Georgia) "But just think... what must be awaiting me further up?" So up to the fifth floor she goes. The sign on that door says:


Floor 5: The sign read: Sorry there are no men on this floor! This floor is just to prove that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping. Have a nice day!

JoAnne says, "Well, the funeral cost me $6,000. And of course, I had to make the obligatory donation to the church, so that was another $2,000. The rest went for the memorial stone."

Marnie says, "$12,000 for the memorial stone? My goodness, how big was it?"

The manager thought for a moment and then raised his megaphone: "Boat number 66," he yelled. "Are you having trouble out there?"


Untitled Document Q: How are men's brains are like the prison system?
A: Same problem - not enough cells!

Most men are the same, they just have different
faces so you can tell them apart.

Whenever you meet a man who would make a good husband,
you will usually find that he is.

Actually women don't make fools of men, most guys...
They're the do-it-yourself types.

Ladies - go for younger men! You might as
well, they never mature anyway.

Q: How are men are like animals?
A: They're messy, insensitive and potentially violent...
but they make great pets!

There are a lot of words you can use to describe men.
Strong, caring, loving, sensitive, gentle, considerate...
They'd be inaccurate, but you could still use them!

If you want a nice man, go for a bald one. They try harder!

Never, never, never trust a man who says he's the boss at home.
No doubt he lies about other things, too.

Shelly wondered if she was going to get a prize...

Sure enough, the MC called out her name, "Shelly, you win with 10 kids... And champagne is only half the prize. The other half is a giant, economy size bottle of aspirin!"

"Don't bother with the aspirin," Shelly giggled... "It should be obvious with 10 little ones that I've never had a headache!"


Untitled Document The 10 Commandments of Bureaucracy

1 Preserve thyself.

2 It is easier to fix the blame than to fix the problem.

3 A penny saved is an oversight.

4 Information deteriorates upward.

5 The first 90% of the task takes 10% of the time; the last 10% takes the other 90%.

6 Experience: what you get just after you need it.

7 For any given large, complex, hard to understand, expensive problem, there exists at least one short, simple, easy, cheap, wrong answer.

8 Anything that can be changed will be, until time runs out.

9 To err is human; to shrug is civil service.

10 There's never enough time to do it right, but there's always enough time to do it over.

women to achieve this reversal of roles?"

Untitled Document A faithful couple got the bad news from their doctor. They couldn't have any children.

On the way home from the Doctor they were led to drop by to see their pastor to ask for prayer.

The Pastor also ran an auto repair shop on the side, so they dropped by the shop. After they explained the situation, the pastor was led to pray for them on the spot. He looked around, grabbed a can of three-in-one oil and quickly blessed it to anoint them.

Sure enough about 9 months later they had triplets. The couple once again showed up at the pastor's study and as soon as the woman saw the pastor she ran up to him, threw her arms around him and gave him the biggest hug.

"What was that all about"? He asked.

She replied "I'm just glad you used three-in-one oil and not WD-40!"

Soon after they left, however, the doorbell rang.

It was one of two men. He asked my wife to move her car, which was blocking their van.

"Fine," she smiled, "My fee is $35."
