Subject: Afghan Woman Finally Grows Sick of Roleplay

JALALABAD - From the moment she was married ten years ago at the age of 14,
Meena Massoud has dutifully worn a Burka.  She has refused to travel outside
unless accompanied by her husband, Ahmed, and even then, she has trailed him
by 6 paces.  But ever since she came across a Frederick's of Hollywood
catalog left behind by a US Marine, Meena is ready for a change.

"It's ridiculous!" snorted Meena.  "I want to be a good wife, and I'm
willing to do some pretty goofy things to spice up our sex life, but ten
years of playing 'Ali Baba and the 40 thieves' is too much.  I mean, when
does something move out of the realm of "kinky fun" and become a fetish?  I
can tell you right now, that when I agreed to 'Burka Girl' roleplay, I never
intended to be a 'lifestyler.'"

"You never can tell with women what they are willing to go for," shrugged
Ahmed.  "I was pleasantly surprised Meena would do the whole "Harem Dancer"
routine.  Sure, I would have liked a change of pace sometimes, maybe light
B&D, some spanking maybe.  A little oral wouldn't have hurt.  But I didn't
want her to think I was some kind of freak.  So I just kept doing what I was
doing.  We were both comfortable with it.  I thought she liked it.  If
anything, she was topping from the bottom."

"Besides, she's not the only one who has a gripe," continued Ahmed.  "I grew
a beard, fired my gun into the air at regular intervals, and loudly decried
America whenever she was within earshot.  As a result, I lived in a world
without television and nearly got the crap bombed out of me.  NOW she tells
me she wants variety!"

"Listen, I had no idea there were so many different games we could play,"
explained Meena testily.  "I could be a French maid or a sexy nurse, a
strict English schoolmarm or a naughty Schoolgirl, a feisty cheerleader or
Jane of the Jungle, who knows - maybe even a damsel in distress saved by my
knight in shining armor.

But there Ahmed draws the line.  "I am not going to pretend to be a
Crusader!" he sputtered angrily.  "That is strictly forbidden by Islam!
Besides, everyone knows the Ren-Faire women are all chunky."

Subject: Worst Job.....

Zoo sperm bank worker Mohd. Binatang bin Goncang wins "Worst Job in
Singapore".

Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS), which runs the Singapore Zoo, has set
up a bank of sperm and animal tissue in order to help preserve species.
The thankless task of collecting the sperm falls to Mr. Binatang's,
starting his rounds at 4:00 a.m. "We start so early in the morning because
a lot of the animals have 'morning glory' when they wake up and it's
easier to collect the sperm. Wearing rubber gloves and carrying a cooler
box filled with ice and tupperware, Mr. Binatang, 25, told us that he'd
just graduated from Singapore Polytechnic with a diploma in life sciences.
He liked nature and animals and thought that the Singapore Zoo would be
the perfect place to work.

"I never thought I'd be giving an orang-utan a hand job every morning,"
he said somewhat ruefully. "And he is the worst, he expects to be kissed
first. "As we approached the orang-utan enclosure, we saw the Zoo's most
famous resident lying casually on his back, hands behind his head and
sporting a huge erection. Applying the massage oil onto his gloves, he
lingered outside the enclosure before entering and knelt before the orange
beast. About 2 minutes' worth of squelching noises could be heard before
Mr.Binatang emerged again.

Next the tiger enclosure, the big cats were sprawled lazily on the grass
verge, in a somewhat half-hearted manner as he put on a fresh set of
gloves and entered the enclosure. "Here, kitty, kitty,kitty..." Moments
later, he emerged with several tupperware full of viscous fluid.

"Isn't it dangerous?" we asked. Mr. Binatang was silent for a while. "They
know I'm not there as an enemy," he finally said, a glazed, faraway look
in his eyes. Worked his way round the zoo, finished his rounds at 3:00 pm
in  the afternoon. Carrying out his duties with the tapirs, the
rhinoceros, giraffe and the gorillas, amongst others. "Each animal is
different," he said, removing his gloves, now speckled with traces of
polar bear spunk.

"The chimpanzees always want to be hugged afterwards. The elephant is the
most tricky because of the size of its thing. Sometimes I have to use both
my arms to tug on it. As you can expect it's really affecting my sex life.
I can't help it. Each time my wife initiates sex, these ejaculating hippos
keep floating through my mind."

How long will he stay difficult to know, but deputy assistant director Lai
Jee Seow thinks it is important to continue. "It's because the animals
have gotten too used to Binatang coming over every morning to pull them
off," said "Many of them now can't be bothered to engage in real sex."

Subject: "Quick... call the plumber!" the Old Perfesser piped in.

The old and MrsPerfesser watched the grandbaby for their
daughter. At the end of the day, MrsPerfesser said, "Whoo,
I'm really worn out. I remember being exhausted when our
daughter was a baby... Now, with the granddaughter, I'm
exhausted all over again!"
The old perfesser replies, "It's to be expected, hon. Why
do you think they call folks our age re-tired?"

       -- + -- + -- + -- + -- + -- + --

The old perfesser was yelling at the airport: "If you can
fly this plane 2000 miles in the dark, and find Los Angeles,
you can find my bags!"

       -- + -- + -- + -- + -- + -- + --

The old perfesser moves away from a bank window, counts his change,
and then goes back and says to the cashier, "Hey, you gave me the
wrong change!"
"Sir, you stepped away from the counter," said the cashier. "We
don't make corrections after you leave. There's nothing I can do
about it now, that's the policy of this bank."
"Well, okay," said the old perfesser. "Just thought you'd like to
know you gave me twenty dollars too much. Buh-bye. "

[excerpted from The Old Perfesser's diary]

Dear Diary,

I decided to search my roots. Boy howdy, did *I* get a big surprise!
I found out I've got Arab ancestors!
From now on, I'm gonna have everybody call me by my new Muslim name:

The old and MrsPerfesser had been arguing all day - she STILL
ain't happy he's retired - and just sat staring daggers at each
other over supper.

LEARNING FOREIGN LANGUAGES
      submitted by The Old Perfesser
      special to The Valdoster Daily Snooze


As a former French Professor, well, I must say I'm shocked at
the provincial attitude around here! All the recent editorials
and letters to the editor about speaking only American, no need
to know any other languages, etc.
I tell you, I've been to Spain and France, and they don't speak
anything else BUT Spanish and French over there... and if those
Frenchies can learn that language, I just can't understand why
our young people would have any problems.
So, I will be offering, over the next several weeks, reasons why
French is better than... better than... well, better that ANYTHING!

Part 1:
 French is Better than Chocolate!

 - Speaking French won't make you gain weight
 - French doesn't melt in your mouth or in your hands
 - French isn't bad for your teeth
 - You never run out of French
 - You can speak French before, during, and after meals
 - Too much French won't make you sick
 - French is free
 - You don't need to hide French from the kids
 - French won't make you hyper
 - Sharing French is better than speaking it alone

From:    Bill Stebbins <bs16@CORNELL.EDU>
Subject: Check The Brakes

A middle-aged businessman took a young woman half his age as his
wife.  The fantasy of having a young woman in his bed soon became
a nightmare when he found that he could not last long enough to
satisfy his young bride.  His wife, as understanding as she was
exciting, told him that all was well even if he was quick to get
out of the saddle.  Determined to satisfy this sweet young thing,
the man visited the doctor to get some advice.

"Doctor, I can't seem to hold back for very long when I make love
to my young wife and I can't satisfy her.  What can I do?"

The doctor smiled, patted him on the shoulder, and said in a
professional manner, "Try a bit of self-stimulation before having
intercourse with your wife and you'll find that you'll last longer
and ultimately satisfy her."

"Okay, Doctor.  If you think that will help."

Later that afternoon, his young bride called him at work to let
him know that she would be attacking him at the front door when he
arrived home.  "Be prepared, my darling, I'm going to ravish you,"
she cooed over the phone.

Undaunted, the man decided to follow the doctor's advice.  But
where? In the office?  The Xerox room?  What if someone walked in
on him?  He got in his truck and began the journey home.  Soon he
decided he would find a spot on the road to pull over, climb under
the truck and pretend to be inspecting the rear axle, and do the
deed there.  A moment later, he pulled over, crawled beneath the
truck, closed his eyes tightly, fantasized about his young wife,
and began his "therapy."

A few minutes later, just as he was about to complete his therapy
session, he felt someone tugging on his pants leg.  Keeping his
eyes tightly shut to avoid ruining the fantasy he was enjoying,
he said, "Yes?"

"Sir, I'm with the Police Department.  Could you tell me what you
are doing, please?"

"Yes, officer, I'm inspecting my truck's rear axle," he replied
confidently.

"Well, you should've checked the brakes, your truck rolled down
the hill a few minutes ago."

Subject: Resigning

The pastor shocked the congregation when he announced
that he was resigning from the church and moving to a
drier climate.

After the service, a very distraught lady came to the
pastor with tears in her eyes, "Oh, Pastor Bob, we are
going to miss you so much. We don't want you to leave!"

The kindhearted pastor patted her hand and said "Now,
now, Carolyn, don't carry on. The pastor who takes my
place might be even better than me".

"Yeah", she said, with a tone of disappointment in her
voice, "That's what they said the last time too...."

Subject: Federal Air Marshals

Subject: Federal Air Transportation

Almost 150 years ago, President Lincoln found it necessary
to hire a private investigator - Mr. Alan Pinkerton. He was
actually the beginning of the Secret Service.

 Since that time federal police authority has grown to a large
number of three / four letter agencies - FBI, CIA, INS, IRS,
DEA, BATF, ATF, etc.

Now comes a proposal for another agency: The "Federal Air
Transportation Airport Security Service." Can't you see it
now, the new service in their black outfits with their initials in
large white letters across their backs? "FATASS."

Subject: soccer mom<lang>

At one point during a game, the coach called one of his 7-year-old
soccer players aside and asked, "Do you understand what
cooperation is?  What a team is?"

The little boy nodded in the affirmative.

"Do you understand that what matters is whether we win or
lose together as a team?"

The little boy nodded yes.

"So," the coach continued, "I'm sure you know, when a foul  is
called, you shouldn't argue, curse, attack the referee, or call him
a pecker-head.  Do you understand all that?"

Again the little boy nodded.

He continued, "And when I take you out of the game so another
boy gets a chance to play, it's not good sportsmanship to call
your coach 'a dumb asshole' is it?''

Again the little boy nodded.

"Good," said the coach.  "Now go over there and explain all
that to your mother."

+Got this from my friend Ana E. Muss+

A few days ago I went to the copy place.  I needed 80 copies. The
guy told me that if I made fewer than 100 copies, each copy would
cost 4 cents. But if I made at least 100 copies I would get the
discounted rate of 2 cents per copy.

I told him to make 80 copies of the front of the document and make
20 copies of the blank back. I could use the blank paper later on
for other purposes. He probably never thought of this situation
before; he gave me an angry look but copied the documents anyway.

Subject: This Week's News In Brief

Smiling Willie Nelson Reflects On A Lifetime Of Weed And Women

LUCK , TX— Taking a long, slow drag off a joint, country-music legend Willie
Nelson reflected on a lifetime of weed and women Monday.  "I've had some
pretty fine times," said a smiling Nelson between hits at his West Texas
ranch.  "And some pretty fine ladies.  Some of the names have escaped me,
but the memories never will."  Nelson then retired to his backyard, where he
drank beer and strummed his favorite guitar while watching the sun go down.


Moviegoer Can Already See Where Commercials Will Go

MILTON, MA— Twenty minutes into a screening of Disney's Snow Dogs Monday,
moviegoer Ryan Friesen announced that he can already tell where the
commercial breaks will be inserted when the film is aired on ABC sometime in
2003.  "Right there... commercial," Friesen said to himself as Cuba Gooding
Jr., who stars as a Miami dentist who inherits an dogsled team, heads off to
Alaska.  "That'll be the first break, right around 8:20 p.m., assuming they
start it at 8."  Friesen has previously called the commercial breaks for the
films Jumanji, Home Alone 2, and Twister with 80 percent accuracy.


Valentine's Day Coming A Little Early In Relationship

MONROE, MI— Area resident Todd Munde, who has been dating Lisa Watros for
the past three weeks, lamented Monday that Valentine's Day is coming a
little early in the couple's relationship.  "It's kind of weird to be doing
the whole romantic flowers-and-candy Valentine's Day thing with somebody you
just started seeing," said Munde, 30.  "Ideally, we would have started
dating last October.  That way, Valentine's Day would have fallen somewhere
around the four-month mark.  Oh, well."


Woman Who Claims Book Changed Her Life Has Not Changed

MEMPHIS, TN— Despite claims that Bruce Wilkinson's The Prayer Of Jabez:
Breaking Through To The Blessed Life, "totally changed [her] worldview,"
payroll secretary Brenda Haskell is the same shallow, distracted person she
has always been.  "Yeah, ever since reading it, she's really been elevated
to a higher, more profound spiritual plane," coworker Stephanie Roule said.
"I guess that's the spiritual plane where you spend all day obsessing over
your nails."


Vanquished Foe's Skull Makes Surprisingly Bad Wine Goblet

DEATH MOUNTAIN— The skull of Wynric Lance, failed claimant to the throne of
Eirea, does not make as good a wine goblet as Lord Shryke had imagined, the
despot revealed Monday.  "This damn thing is practically impossible to drink
out of," said Shryke at a banquet celebrating the defeat of the Army Of
Light.  "You have to hold it just right to keep the wine from spilling over
the parietal bones where they connect with the occipital.  And there's a
leak in the left temple.  As much as I love the idea of using it, it's just
stupid and impractical."  Shryke concluded that while he might end up

Senate Subcommittee On Energy And Water Development More Like A Family

WASHINGTON, DC— Sen. Pete Domenici (R-NM), ranking Republican on the Senate
Subcommittee on Energy and Water Development, revealed Monday that the group
is "less a Senate subcommittee than a big family.  "[Senator] Harry [Reid
(D-NV)] isn't just chairman of our subcommittee.  He's more like a dad to
us," Domenici said.  "We can talk to him about anything that's troubling us,
even if it has nothing to do with the allocation of hydroelectric power."
