There is a factory in Northern Minnesota which makes the Tickle Me Elmo
toys. The toy laughs when you tickle it under the arms.
Well, Lena is hired at The Tickle Me Elmo factory and she reports for her
first day promptly at 8:00 AM .
The next day at 8:45 AM there is a knock at the Personnel Manager's door.
The Foreman throws open the door and begins to rant about the new employee.
He complains that she is incredibly slow and the whole line is backing up,
putting the entire production line behind schedule.
The Personnel Manager decides he should see this for himself, so the 2 men
march down to the factory floor.
When they get there the line is so backed up that there are Tickle Me Elmo's
all over the factory floor and they're really beginning to pile up. At the
end of the line stands Lena surrounded by mountains of Tickle Me Elmo's.
She has a roll of plush red fabric and a huge bag of small marbles.
The 2 men watch in amazement as she cuts a little piece of fabric, wraps it
around two marbles and begins to carefully sew the little package between
The Personnel Manager bursts into laughter.
After several minutes of hysterics he pulls himself together and approaches
"I'm sorry," he says to her, barely able to keep a straight face, "but I
think you misunderstood the instructions I gave you yesterday..."

The European Commission have just announced an agreement
whereby English will be the official language of the EU rather
than German, which was the other possibility. As part of the
negotiations, her Majesty' s government conceded that English
spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five
year phase in plan that would be known as "EuroEnglish"...
In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c"....
Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy.
The hard "c" will be dropped in favor of the "k". This should
klear up konfusion and keyboards kan have one less letter.
There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the sekond year,
when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with the "f". This
will make words like "fotograf" 20% shorter. In the third
year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to
reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible.
Governments will enkorage the removal of double letters, which
have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil
agre that the horible mes of the silent "e"s in the language
is disgraceful, and they should go away. By the fourth yar,
peopl wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z"
and "w" with "v".
During ze fifz yar, ze uneserary "o" kan be dropd from vords
kontaining "ou" and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to
ozer kombinations of leters. After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a
reli sensibl riten styl. Zer vil be no mor trubls or
difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi to understand ech ozer.
A stranger was seated next to a little girl on the airplane when the stranger turned to her and said, " Let's talk. I've heard that flights go quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow passenger."
The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly and said to the stranger," What would you like to talk about ? " " Oh, I don't know ", said the stranger. " How about nuclear power ?"
" OK ". she said. " That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat grass, the same stuff. Yet a deer excretes little pellets,while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps of dried grass. Why do you suppose that is? "
The stranger thinks about it and says, " Hmmm, I have no idea."
To which the little girl replies, " Do you really feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know shit ?

One day I met a sweet gentleman and fell in love.When it became apparent
that we would marry, I made the supreme sacrifice and gave up beans.
Some months later, on my birthday, my car broke down on the way home
From work.Since I lived in the countryside I called my husband and told
him that I would be late because I had to walk home.
On my way, I passed by a small diner and the odour of baked beans was
more than I could
stand. With miles to walk, I figured that I would walk off any ill
effects by the time I reached home, so I stopped at the diner and before
it, I had consumed three large orders of baked beans.
All the way home, I made sure that I released ALL the gas. Upon my
arrival, my husband seemed excited to see me and exclaimed delightedly:
"Darling I have a surprise for dinner tonight!" He then blindfolded me
and led me to my chair at the dinner table. I
Took a seat and just as he was about to remove my blindfold, the
He made me promise not to touch the blindfold until he returned and went
to answer the call. The baked beans I had consumed were still affecting
me and the pressure was becoming most unbearable, so while my husband
was out of the room I seized the opportunity, shifted my weight to one
leg and let one go.
It was not only loud, but it smelled like a fertilizer truck running
over a skunk in front of a pulpwood mill.I took my napkin from my lap
and fanned the air around me vigorously.
Then, shifting to the other cheek, I ripped off three more.The stink was
worse than cooked cabbage!!! Keeping my ears carefully tuned to the
conversation in the other room,
I went on like this for another few minutes.
The pleasure was indescribable.When eventually the telephone farewells
signalled the end of my freedom,I quickly fanned the air a few more
times with my napkin, placed it on my lap and folded my hands back on it
feeling very relieved and pleased with myself.
My face must have been the picture of innocence when my husband
>returned, apologizing for taking so long. He asked me if I had peeked
through the blindfold, and I assured him I had not.
At this point, he removed the blindfold, and twelve dinner guests seated
around the table chorused: "Happy Birthday!"

Two women friends had gone for a girl's night out.
Both were very faithful and loving wives, however
they had gotten over-enthusiastic on the Bacardi Breezers.
Incredibly drunk and walking home, they needed to pee.
So they decided to stop in a nearby cemetery.
Having nothing to wipe with, one of them thought she would
take off her panties and use them. Her friend however was wearing a
rather expensive pair of panties and did not want to ruin them, but
was lucky enough to squat down next to a grave that had a wreath
with a ribbon on it, so she proceeded to wipe with it.
After the girls did their business they proceeded to go home. The
next day one of the women's husbands was concerned that his normally
sweet and innocent wife was still in bed hung over, so he
phoned the other husband and said, "These girl's nights out have got
to stop. I'm starting to suspect the worst. My wife came home
with no panties!"
"That's nothing", said the other husband, "Mine came back with a
card stuck between her ass cheeks that said: "From all of us at the
Fire Station. We'll never forget you."

At dawn the telephone rings:
"Hello, Senor Rod? This is Ernesto the caretaker at your country house."
"Ah yes, Ernesto. What can I do for you? Is there a problem?"
"Um, I am just calling to advise you, Senor Rod, that your parrot died.
"My parrot? Dead? The Norwegian Blue?"
"Si, Senor, that's the one."
"Damn! That's a pity! I spent a small fortune on that bird. What did it die from?"
"From eating rotten meat, Senor Rod"
"Rotten meat? Who the hell fed him rotten meat?"
"Nobody, Senor. He ate the meat from the dead horse."
"Dead horse? What dead horse?"
"The thoroughbred, Senor Rod."
"My prize thoroughbred is dead?"
"Yes Senor Rod, he died from all that work pulling the water cart."
"Are you insane? What water cart?"
"The one we used to put out the fire, Senor"
"Good Lord! What fire are you talking about, man?"
"The one at your house, Senor! A candle fell and the curtains caught on fire"
"Are you saying that my mansion is destroyed by fire?
"Yes Senor Rod."
"But there's electricity at the house!!! What was the candle for?"
"For the funeral, Senor Rod."
"WHAT BLOODY FUNERAL?!"
"Your wife's, Senor Rod... She showed up one night out of the blue and I
thought she was a thief, so I hit her with one of your golf clubs."
"Ernesto, if you broke one of my golf clubs, you're in deep sh*t!"

The wife came home early to find her husband making love to a beautiful sexy young woman.
"You unfaithful, disrespectful jerk! What are you doing? How dare you do this to me the faithful wife, the mother of your children! I'm leaving this house and I want a divorce!"
The husband, replied, "Wait! Wait a minute! Before you leave, at least listen to what happened."
"It'll be the last thing I will hear from you so make it fast, you cheating creep."
"While driving home this young lady asked for a ride. I saw her so defenseless that I went ahead and allowed her into my car. I noticed she was very thin, not well dressed and dirty. She mentioned she had not eaten for three days. Out of compassion, I brought her home and warmed up the enchiladas I made for you last night that you wouldn't eat because you're afraid you'll gain more weight.
When I served them to her, the poor young thing, practically inhaled them. Since she was dirty I asked her if she'd like to bathe. While she was showering, I noticed her clothes were worn-out and full of holes so I threw them away.
Since she needed clothes, I gave her the pair of jeans that you no longer wear because they're too tight on you, I also gave her the blouse that I gave you on our anniversary and you don't wear because I don't have good taste.
I gave her the pullover that my sister gave you for Christmas that you won't wear just to bother my sister and I also gave her the boots that you bought at the expensive boutique that you never wore again after you saw your co-worker wearing the same pair.
After she dressed, I walked the young woman to the door where she turned around and with tears of gratitude streaming down her cheeks,she asked me, "Sir, do you have anything else your wife doesn't use?"

A lady died this past January, and Citibank billed her for February for their annual service charges on her credit card, and then added late fees and interest on the annual charge. The balance had been $0.00, now it is somewhere around $60.00.
A family member placed a call to Citibank:
Family Member: "I'm calling to tell you that she died in January."
Citibank: "The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still apply."
Family Member: "Maybe you should turn it over to collections."
Citibank: "Since it is two months past due, it already has been."
Family Member: So, what will they do when they find out she is dead?"
Citibank: "Either report her account to the frauds division or report her to the credit bureau; maybe both!"
Family Member: "Do you think God will be mad at her?"
Citibank: "Excuse me?"
Family Member: "Did you just get what I was telling you . . . the part about her being dead?"
Citibank: "Sir, you'll have to speak to my supervisor."
Supervisor gets on the phone.
Family Member: "I'm calling to tell you she died in January."
Citibank: "The account was never closed and the late fees and charges still apply."
Family Member: "You mean you want to collect from her estate?"
Citibank: (Stammer) "Are you her lawyer?"
Family Member: "No, I'm her great nephew." (Lawyer info given)
Citibank: "Could you fax us a certificate of death?"
Family Member: "Sure." (the fax number is given)
After they get the fax ...
Citibank: "Our system just isn't setup for death. I don't know what more I can do to help."
Family Member: "Well, if you figure it out, great! If not, you could just keep billing her. I don't think she will care."
Citibank: "Well, the late fees and charges do still apply."
Family Member: "Would you like her new billing address?"
Citibank: "That might help."
Family Member: " Odessa Memorial Cemetery, Highway 129, Plot Number 69."
Citibank: "Sir, that's a cemetery!"
Family Member: "So, what do you do with dead people on your planet?"

Some retired deputy sheriffs went to a retreat in the mountains.
To save money, they decided to sleep two to a room. But no one wanted to room with Dave because he snored so badly.
They decided it wasn't fair to make one of them stay with him the Whole time, so they voted to take turns.
The first deputy slept with Dave and comes to breakfast the
next Morning with his hair a mess and his eyes all bloodshot.
They said, "Man, what happened to you?"
He said, "Dave snored so loudly, I just sat up and watched him all night."
The next night it was a different deputy's turn.
In the morning, same thing--hair all standing up, eyes all
They said, "Man, what happened to you? You look awful!"
He said, "Man, that Dave shakes the roof. I watched him all
The third night was Bob's turn.
Bob was a big burly bus driver; a man's man.
The next morning he came to breakfast bright eyed and bushy
"Good morning." They couldn't believe it!
They said, "Man, what happened?"
He said, "Well, we got ready for bed. I went and tucked Dave into bed and kissed him good night. He sat up and watched me all night long."
A man took his wife to the rodeo and one of the first exhibits they stopped at was the breeding bulls. They went up to the first pen and there was a sign attached that said, "This bull mated 50 times last year." The wife playfully nudged her husband in the ribs and said," He mated 50 times last year."
They walked to the second pen which had a sign attached that said, "This bull mated 120 times last year." The wife gave her husband a healthy jab and said, "That's more than twice a week! You could learn a lot from him."
They walked to the third pen and it had a sign attached that said, in capital letters, "This bull mated 365 times last year." The wife, so excited that her elbow nearly broke husband's ribs, said," That's once a day. You could REALLY learn something from this one."
The husband looked at her and said, "Go over and ask him if it was with the same cow."
NOTE: The husband's condition has been upgraded from 'critical' to 'stable' and he should eventually make a full recovery.

You Can't Outdo A Texan
A man from Texas, driving a Volkswagen Beetle, pulls up next to a guy in a Rolls Royce at a stop sign. Their windows are open and he yells at the guy in the Rolls,
"Hey, you got a telephone in that Rolls?"
The guy in the Rolls says, "Yes, of course I do.."
"I got one too... See?" the Texan says.
"Uh, huh, yes, that's very nice."
"You got a fax machine?" asks the Texan.
"Why, actually, yes, I do."
"I do too! See? It's right here!" brags the Texan.
The light is just about to turn green and the guy in the Volkswagen says,
"So, do you have a double bed in back there?"
The guy in the Rolls replies, "NO! Do you?"
"Yep, got my double bed right in back here," the Texan replies.
The light turns and the man in the Volkswagen takes off.
Well, the guy in the Rolls is not about to be one-upped, so he immediately goes to a customizing shop and orders them to put a double bed in back of his car.
About two weeks later, the job is finally done. He picks up his car and drives all over town looking for the Volkswagen beetle with the Texas plates. Finally, he finds it parked alongside the road, so he pulls his Rolls up next to it.
The windows on the Volkswagen are all fogged up and he feels somewhat awkward about it, but he gets out of his newly modified Rolls and taps on the foggy window of the Volkswagen.
The man in the Volkswagen finally opens the window a crack and peeks out.
The guy with the Rolls says, "Hey, remember me?"
"Yeah, yeah, I remember you," replies the Texan, "What's up?"
"Check this out...I got a double bed installed in my Rolls."
"The Texan exclaims, "YOU GOT ME OUT OF THE SHOWER TO TELL ME THAT???
An old Italian lived alone in New Jersey. He wanted to plant his annual tomato garden, but it was very difficult work, as the ground was hard.
His only son, Rocco, who used to help him, was in prison. The old man wrote a letter to his son and described his predicament :
I am feeling pretty sad, because it looks like I won't be able to plant my tomato garden this year. I'm just getting too old to be digging up a garden plot. I know if you were here my troubles would be over. I know you would be happy to dig the plot for me, like in the old days.
A few days later he received a letter from his son.
Don't dig up that garden. That's where the bodies are buried.
At 4 a.m. the next morning, FBI agents and local police arrived and dug up the entire area without finding any bodies. They apologized to the old man and left.
That same day the old man received another letter from
Go ahead and plant the tomatoes now. That's the best I could do under the circumstances."
