I don't care if you lick windows,
take the special bus
or occasionally pee on yourself..
You hang in there sunshine, you're special
Grandpa
A man came to visit his grandparents, and he noticed his grandfather sitting on the porch, in the rocking chair, wearing only a shirt, with nothing on from  the waist down.
'Grandpa, what are you doing? Your weenie is out in the wind for everyone to see!' he exclaimed.
The old man looked off in the distance without answering.
'Grandpa, what are you doing sitting out here with nothing on below the waist?' he asked again.
The old man slowly looked at him and said,
'Well....last week I sat out here with no shirt on, and I got a stiff neck. This is your grandma's idea.''

Inner Peace
I am passing this on to you because it definitely worked for me and we all could use more calm in our lives. By following the simple advice I heard on a Medical TV show, I have finally found inner peace. A Doctor proclaimed the way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you have started....
So I looked around my house to see things I'd started and hadn't finished and, before leaving the house this morning, I finished off a bottle of Merlot, a bottle of shhhardonay, a bodle of Baileys, a butle of vocka, a pockage of Prunglies, tha mainder of bot Prozic and Valum scriptins, the res of the Chesescke an a box a chocolets. Yu haf no idr who fkin gud I fel.Peas sen dis orn to dem yu fee AR in ned ov inr pece.

EXERCISES FOR PEOPLE OVER 50
Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.
With a 5-lb potato sack in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can.
Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.
Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.
After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato sacks.
Then try 50-lb. potato sacks and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight
for more than a full minute. (I'm at this level)
After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each of the sacks.

Just in case you weren't feeling too old today, this will certainly change things.
The people who are starting college this fall across the nation were born in 1989.
They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.
Their lifetime has always included AIDS.
The CD was introduced the year they were born.
They have always had an answering machine.
They have always had cable.
Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.
Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.
They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.
They don't know who Mork was or where he was from.
They never heard 'Where's the beef?,'
'I'd walk a mile for a Camel,'
or 'de plane, Boss, de plane.'
McDonald's never came in styrofoam containers.
They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.
Do you feel old yet?
If you wish, pass this on to the other old fogies on your list.

When Cardboard Men Come In Handy
(or, when blondes aren't so dumb)
A car gets a flat on the interstate one day. The blonde driver eases it over onto the shoulder of the road, carefully steps out of the car and
opens the trunk. She takes out two cardboard men, unfolds them and stands them at the rear of the vehicle facing oncoming traffic.
The lifelike cardboard men are in trench coats exposing their nude bodies and private parts to approaching drivers. Not surprisingly, the
traffic becomes snarled and backed up.
It isn't very long before a police car arrives. The officer, clearly enraged, approaches the blonde of the disabled vehicle yelling, 'What's
going on here?'
'My car broke down, officer' says the woman calmly.
'Well, what the hell are these obscene cardboard pictures doing here by the road? ' he asks.
Helllooooooo!!!!' says the blonde. 'Those are my emergency flashers.'

Newfoundland Bar
 Recently a routine RCMP patrol parked outside a bar just off the main Highway at Goobies, Newfoundland.
 After last call, the officer noticed a man leaving the bar who was so intoxicated that he could barely walk. The man stumbled around the parking lot for a few minutes, with the officer quietly observing.
 After what seemed an eternity and trying his keys on five different vehicles, the man managed to find his car, which he fell into. He sat there for a few minutes and then threw a hook and line out the window and seemed to be trying to catch a fish. A number of other patrons failed to observe this crazy drunk as they left the bar and drove off.
 Finally the drunk started the car, switched the wipers on and off (it was a fine, dry summer night), flicked the blinkers on, then off a couple of times, honked the horn and then switched on the lights.
 He then pulled in the hook and line and moved the vehicle forward a few inches, reversed a little and then remained still for a few more minutes as some more of the other patron vehicles left.
 At last, the parking lot was empty; he pulled out of the parking lot and started to drive slowly down the road.
 The officer, having patiently waited all this time, now started up the patrol car, put on the flashing lights, and promptly pulled the man over and carried out a Breathalyzer test. To his amazement the Breathalyzer indicated no evidence of the man having consumed any alcohol at all! Dumbfounded, the officer said, 'I'll have to ask you to accompany me to Headquarters. This Breathalyzer equipment must be broken.'
 "I doubt it,' said the truly proud Newfoundlander, 'Tonight I'm the designated decoy.'

To my friends who enjoy a glass of wine... and those who don't.
(Please remember that alcohol does not make you fat - it makes you lean...against tables, floors walls and ugly people).

As Ben Franklin said: In wine there is wisdom,
in beer there is freedom,
in water there is bacteria.

In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E coli) - bacteria  found in feces. In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop.
However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.
                    Remember:
                     Water = Poop,
                     Wine = Health.
Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid,
than to drink water and be full of shit.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information: I'm doing it as a public service
Cheers! 
Butch the Rooster
  John the farmer was in the fertilized egg business.
 He had several  hundred young layers (hens), called "pullets", and ten roosters, whose  job it was to fertilize the eggs. 
 The farmer kept records and any  rooster that didn't perform went into the soup pot and was replaced. That took an awful lot of his time, so he bought a set of tiny bells and  attached them to his roosters. Each bell had a different tone so John  could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing. Now he could sit  on the porch and fill out an efficiency report simply by listening to the bells.
  The farmer's favorite rooster was old Butch, a very fine specimen he was, too. But on this particular morning John noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at  all!  John went to investigate. The other roosters were chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing. The pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover. But to Farmer John's amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring. He'd  sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one. John was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the Renfrew County Fair and he  became an overnight
sensation among the judges.
 The result...The judges not only awarded old Butch the No Bell Piece Prize but they awarded  him the Pulletsurprise as well.
  Clearly old Butch was a politician in  the making: who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most highly coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention. 
 Vote carefully this year... the bells are not always audible.

A Zebra dies and arrives at the Pearly Gates...
 As he enters, he asks St. Peter, 'I have a question that's haunted me all of my days on earth. Am I white with black stripes, or am I black with white stripes?'

St. Peter said, 'That's a question only God can answer.'
So the zebra went off in search of God.
When he found Him, the zebra asked, 'God, please - I must know. Am I white with black stripes, or am I black with white stripes?'
God simply replied 'You are what you are.'
The zebra returned to see St. Peter once more, who asked him, 'Well, did God straighten out your query for you?'
The zebra looked puzzled. 'No sir, God simply said 'You are what you are.''
St. Peter smiled and said to the zebra, 'Well then, there you are. You are white with black stripes.'
The zebra asked St. Peter, 'How do you know that for certain?'
'Because,' said St. Peter, 'If you were black with white stripes, God would have said, 'You is what you is.'
 
WARNING: If you laugh at this, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Rev Wright and Obama will be comin after yo white ass!!!
A Message by George Carlin:

The paradox of our time in history is that we have taller buildings but shorter tempers,
wider Freeways ,but narrower viewpoints.
We spend more, but have less,
we buy more, but enjoy less.
We have bigger houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time.
We have more degrees but less sense,
more knowledge, but less judgment,
more experts, yet more problems,
more medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much, spend too recklessly, laugh too little, drive too fast, get too angry,
stay up too late, get up too tired,
read too little, watch TV too much, and pray too seldom.

We have multiplied our possessions, but reduced our values.
We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate too often.

We've learned how to make a living, but not a life.
We've added years to life not life to years.
We've been all the way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.
We conquered outer space but not inner space.
We've done larger things, but not better things.

We've cleaned up the air, but polluted the soul.
We've conquered the atom, but not our prejudice.
We write more, but learn less.
We plan more, but accomplish less.
We've learned to rush, but not to wait.
We build more computers to hold more information, to produce more copies than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion,
big men and small character,
steep profits and shallow relationships.
These are the days of two incomes but more divorce,
fancier houses, but broken homes.
These are days of quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway morality, one night stands, overweight bodies, and pills that do everything from cheer, to quiet, to kill.
It is a time when there is much in the showroom window and nothing in the stockroom.
A time when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit delete...

Remember;
spend some time with your loved ones, because they are not going to be around forever.
Remember, say a kind word to someone who looks up to you in awe, because that little person soon will grow up and leave your side.
Remember, to give a warm hug to the one next to you, because that is the only treasure you can give with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.
Remember, to say, 'I love you' to your partner and your loved ones, but most of all mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from deep inside of you.
Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday that person will not be there again.
Give time to love, give time to speak! And give time to share the precious thoughts in your mind.
AND ALWAYS REMEMBER:
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.

A wee Bit O'BLARNEY early

Into a Belfast pub comes Paddy Murphy,

looking like he'd just been run over by  a train.
His arm is in a sling, his nose is broken,

his face is cut and bruised and he's walking with a limp.
"
What happened to you?" asks Sean, the bartender.
"Jamie O'Conner and me had a fight," says Paddy.
"
That little shit, O'Conner," says Sean,

"He couldn't do that to you,

he must have had something in his hand."
"
That he did," says Paddy, "a shovel is what he had,

and a terrible lickin' he gave me with it."
"
Well," says Sean, "you should have defended yourself,

didn't you have something in your hand?"
"That I did," said Paddy. "Mrs. O'Conner's breast,

and a thing of beauty it was, but useless in a fight."


*************************************************************
An Irishman who had a little too much to drink

is driving home from the city one night and,
of course, his car's weaving violently all over the road.
A cop pulls him over.
"
So," says the cop to the driver, where have ya been?"
"
Why, I've been to the pub of course," slurs the drunk.
"
Well," says the cop, "it looks like you've had

quite a few to drink this evening."
"
I did all right," the drunk says with a  smile.
"
Did you know," says the cop, standing straight

and folding his arms across his chest,
"that a few intersections back, your wife fell out of your car?"

"Oh, thank heavens," sighs the drunk.

"For a minute there, I thought I'd gone deaf."


************************************************************

Brenda O'Malley is home making dinner, as usual,

when Tim Finnegan arrives at her door.
"Brenda, may I come in?" he asks. "I've somethin' to tell ya".
"
Of course you can come in, you're always welcome, Tim.

But where's my husband?"
"
That's what I'm here to be telling ya, Brenda.

There was an accident down at the Guinness brewery..."
"
Oh, God no!" cries Brenda. "Please don't tell me."

"I must, Brenda. Your husband Shamus is dead. I'm sorry.
Finally, she looked up at Tim.
"How did it happen, Tim?"
It was terrible, Brenda.

He fell into a vat of Guinness Stout and drowned."

"
Oh dear Jesus! But you must tell me truth,
Did he at least go quickly?"
"Well, Brenda... no. In fact, he got out three times to pee."

*************************************************************

Mary Clancy goes up to Father O'Grady

after his Sunday morning service, and she's in tears.
He says, "So what's bothering you, Mary my dear?"
She says, "Oh, Father, I've got terrible news.

My husband passed away last night."
The priest says, "Oh, Mary, that's terrible.

Tell me, Mary, did he have any last requests?"
She says, "That he did, Father."

The priest says, "What did he ask, Mary?"
She says, "He said, 'Please Mary, put down that damn gun...' "


*********************************************************************************************************  

And The Best For Last

A drunk staggers into a Catholic Church,

enters a confessional booth, sits down, but says nothing.
The Priest coughs a few times

to get his attention but the drunk continues to sit there.
Finally, the Priest pounds three times on the wall.
The drunk mumbles,

"ain't no use knockin, there's no paper on this side either!
