Subject: Don't Trust White Men

 When white man found this land, Indians were running it.

 No Taxes...

 No Debt...

 Plenty Buffalo...

 Plenty beaver!

 Women did most of the work.

 Medicine Man free!

 Indian men hunted and fished all the time!

 White man came and told the Indian, "We're going to
 make your life better."

 Yeah, right!

Subject: Lawyer Joke

There was a job opening in the country’s most prestigious law firm and it
finally comes down to Robert and Paul. Both graduated magna cum laude from
law school. Both come from good families. Both are equally attractive and
well spoken. It’s up to the senior partner to choose one, so he takes each
aside and asks, "Why did you become a lawyer?"

In seconds, he chooses Paul.

Baffled, Robert takes Paul aside. "I don’t understand why I was rejected.
When Mr. Armstrong asked me why I became a lawyer, I said that I had the
greatest respect for the law, that I’d lay down my life for the Constitution
and that all I wanted was to do right by my clients. What in the world did
you tell him?"

"I said I became a lawyer because of my hands," Paul replies.

"Your hands? What do you mean?"

"Well, I took a look one day and there wasn’t any money in either of them!"

                                              ....by Dave Barry

 1.  Never under any circumstances take a sleeping pill and a laxative on
     the same night.

 2.  If you had to identify, in one word, the reason why the human race
     has not achieved, and never will achieve, its full potential, that
     word would be "meetings."

 3.  There is a very fine line between "hobby" and "mental illness."

 4.  People who want to share their religious views with you almost never
     want you to share yours.

 5.  And when God, who created the entire universe with all of its
     glories, decides to deliver a message to humanity, He WILL NOT use,
     as His messenger, a person on cable TV with a bad hairstyle.

 6.  You should not confuse your career with your life.

 7.  No matter what happens, somebody will find a way to take it too

 8.  When trouble arises and things look bad, there is always one
     individual who perceives a solution and is willing to take command.
     Very often, that individual is crazy.

 9.  Nobody cares if you can't dance well.  Just get up and dance.

 10. Never lick a steak knife.

 11. Take out the fortune before you eat the cookie.

 12. The most powerful force in the universe is gossip.

 13. You will never find anybody who can give you a clear and compelling
     reason why we observe daylight savings time.

 14. You should never say anything to a woman that even remotely suggests
     that you think she's pregnant unless you can see an actual baby
     emerging from her at that moment.

 15. There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to
     make a big deal about your birthday.  That time is age eleven.

 16. "The one thing that unites all human beings, regardless of age,
      gender, religion, economic status or ethnic background, is that,
      deep down inside, we ALL believe that we are above average drivers.

 17. The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to annoy
     people who are not in them.

 18. A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter, is not a nice

 19. Your friends love you anyway.

Subject: Not The Best Pickup Lines <adult>

- Your sister's a real knock-out. Is one of you adopted?

- For the longest time I lived with a hairdresser named Brice,
  but then I had this sudden relapse of heterosexuality.

- When we get back to my apartment, whatever you do, don't
  tease the pony.

- You know, if my wife wasn't so hung up on this faithfulness
  thing, she'd probably say you were my cutest girlfriend yet.

- You can trust me, I'm a lawyer.

- I had to break up with my last girlfriend. She welded a
  coat-hanger to the metal plate in her head and was using
  it as antenna to read my thoughts.

- No, really, I read Playboy for the articles.

- My most painful memory? Hmmm... That would have to be when
  those three guys cornered me in the showers in prison.

- Who can blame Woody Allen?

- I've been studying this new age stuff with a guy who channels
  Ed Sullivan. Last week I channeled Topo Gigio and told him
  where he could stick it.

- After our last date, when I got home I had this aching in the
  pit of my stomach. I thought it was because I missed you, but
  it turned out to be food poisoning.

- I'm not free Sunday. I'm going to help OJ look for the real

- If I was a woman, I'd have Rush Limbaugh's baby.

- I guess in retrospect that 'Clay Messiah: Parallels Between
  Jesus and Gumby' wasn't the best title for a doctoral thesis.

- How about after dinner we take a romantic stroll by the oil
  refinery? The fumes give you a really cool buzz.

- Now I'm just speaking hypothetically here, but let's say you
  were at some guy's house, opened the refrigerator, and saw a
  human head. Would you call the cops?

- I was thinking tonight we'd go to a French restaurant. Have
  you ever been to Jacques En Ze Box?

- I always wanted to be a doctor, but I couldn't get into med
  school, so now I just pursue gynecology as a hobby. I even
  have my own stirrups.

On second thought, let's turn off the lights.

A New Yorker was flying to Los Angeles and when the airliner

Subject: Old Gal

    I have become a little older since I saw you last, and a few changes
    have come into my life since then. Frankly, I have become a frivolous
    old gal. I am seeing five gentlemen everyday. As soon as I wake up, Will
    Power helps me get out of bed. Then I go to see John. Then Charlie Horse
    comes along, and when he is here he takes a lot of my time and
    attention. When he leaves, Arthur Ritis shows up and stays the rest of
    the day. He doesn't like to stay in one place very long, so he takes me
    from joint to joint. After such a busy
    day, I'm really tired and glad to go to bed with Ben Gay. What a life.
    Oh yes, I'm also flirting with Al Zymer.

August 3, 1750 - Christopher Dock completed the first book of teaching =

Introductory Computer Science Courses for Non-majors)

1.When a student turns in his/her project two weeks late and asks for =
full credit, accept the late work and tell them that it will be awarded =
full credit. However, do inform them that you will not have time to =
grade it until after you complete your Ph.D.

1.If students will not stop talking when the class period begins, =
announce that there will be a quiz the following day on today's lecture. =
Then leave.
2.If your students are prone to reading the school paper in class, try =
taking out a full page ad in the paper informing them that they are =
going to flunk your class.

1.In the event that you are unprepared for a lecture, be sure to use the =
class time to stress to the class the importance of keeping up with the =
readings. In fact, spend most of the class time stressing this.
2.When the time comes to lecture on a subject you know nothing about, =
the art of controlled digression is invaluable. Here, you try to incite =
unrelated questions from the class which you answer at length. Then at =
the end of class you scold them for digressing and tell them they'll =

1.Always use a fire engine red felt-tip marker with a 1/2 inch tip to =
grade papers. Position your comments strategically so that they spell =

Warning: Be prepared for a 60% class average.

1.If student A approaches you complaining that an answer on their exam =

promptly mark student B's answer incorrect as well. This will redirect =

1.If students request extra credit to make up for the homework they =

a. Solve the dining philosophers problem, using semaphores.
b. Write a C compiler for the Commodore 64.
c. Translate Moby Dick into ASCII-8 code with a leftmost odd parity bit.
d. Design a replacement for the 80486 chip.
e. Build a File Allocation Table (FAT) out of balsa wood.
2.You may also wish to tell the student that they can do extra credit =
work while you decide whether to accept it. When the student turns in =
the work, decide against it.

1.When it is obvious to you that several people have copied each others =
homework, grade one person's work on a separate sheet of paper, then =
photocopy your comments onto everyone else's homework.
2.Should you have very skilled cheaters in your class, try giving =

Subject: Jim Mullen's Hot Sheet

What the country is talking about this week...

1)  Madonna:  She's agreed to star in a film directed by her hubby.  All
they need now is for someone to agree to watch it.

2)  "Apocalypse Now Redux"  Almost an hour of footage has been added to
Coppola's Vietnam classic.  In this version, Fredo was running the war.

3)  Preseason football:  Watching football in August is like playing golf at
midnight.  Even if it's good, I won't like it.

4)  Eriq La Salle:  His prickly Dr. Benton will leave ER at the end of next
season.  In his final episode, they surgically remove a feather from his

5)  Lucy Lawless:  The ex-Warrior Princess will guest-star on "The X-Files"
next season.  As a special agent princess.

6)  James Dean:  A two-hour made-for-TV bio of the '50s legend portrays him
warts and all.  Without warts it would have been half an hour.

7)  Michael Flatley:  The Lord of the Dance is hanging up his dancing shoes.
Next to the hook where his shirt has been for the last 10 years.

8)  Paul McCartney:  He plans to marry 33-year-old former model Heather
Mills next year.  He's waiting for her to find out he was in a band before

9)  Mariah Carey:  She was hospitalized due to "extreme exhaustion."  She's
too big a star to have plain old exhaustion.

10)  "Code Red" worm:  The program could slow the Internet to a crawl.
Taking the job away from the phone company.

11)  Wilt Chamberlain:  The sexually active athlete's mansion isn't selling.
Who needs a kitchen that sleeps six?

12)  Phone envy:  Motorola's new $400-plus cell phone is supposedly the
latest status symbol: "Oh, dear, still answering your own phone?"

13)  The thong:  The skimpy garment turns 20 in August.  Some designer was
just in the thong place at the right time.

14)  Vin Diesel:  The follically challenged "Fast and the Furious" hunk
signed a $10 million movie deal. They  must have him confused with Vin

15)  Britney Spears:  Collectors say she's one of the stars least likely to
sign an autograph.  Making it more valuable—like Tiffany's or Debbie

woman's personality based on what she drinks.
Though interviewed separately, they concurred on almost all counts.

  The results:

   Personality: Casual, low-maintenance; down to earth.
   Your Approach: Challenge her to a game of pool.

   Drink: Mixed Drinks
   Personality: Older, more refined, high maintenance, has very picky
   taste;knows exactly what she wants.
   Your Approach: You won't have to approach her, if she is interested,
   she'll send YOU a drink.

   Drink: Wine - (does not include White Zinfandel, see below)
   Personality: Conservative and classy; sophisticated yet giggles.
   Your Approach: Tell her you love to travel and spend quiet evenings
   with friends.

   Drink: White Zinfandel
   Personality: Easy; thinks she is classy and sophisticated, actually
   has no clue.
   Your approach: Make her feel smarter than she is.... this should be
   an easy target.

   Drink: Shots
   Personality: Likes to hang with frat-boy pals and looking to get
   totally drunk...... and naked.
   Your Approach: Easiest hit in the joint. You have been blessed this
   evening. Nothing to do but wait. However, be careful not to make her

   Then there is the MALE addendum. The deal with guys is, as always,
   very simple and clear cut:

   Domestic Beer: He's poor and wants to get laid.

   Imported Beer: He likes good beer and wants to get laid.

   Wine: He's hoping that the wine thing will give him a sophisticated
   image to help him get laid.

   Whiskey: He doesn't give a hoot about anything but getting laid.

   Tequila: He is thinking he has a chance with the toothless waitress.

   White Zinfandel: He's gay
