Subject: Bin Laden Dead, Say Fashion Elite

PARIS -- Terrorist mastermind Osama bin Laden is dead, say many of the worlds fashion
aristocracy.  "He has been put completely out of the picture," said Vogue fashion editor
Claudia Gains, sporting a gold and cream brocade trouser suit by Favourbrook.  "I wouldn't
be caught dead with him next season."

The man hasn't been spotted in weeks from Paris to Milan, a de facto "death sentence" from
the most famous designers in the fashion world.

"He is dead," said Italian designer Rodalpho Maerti, whose white tuxedo-style skirt suit
stole the show at last year's fashion week extranvaganza.  "He is gone.  It was only a
matter of time before his number was called.  Until he becomes 'retro cool' in
approximately 15-20 years."

Subject: Reading Women.....

A couple goes on vacation to a fishing resort in northern Minnesota. The
husband likes to fish at the crack of dawn. The wife likes to read. One
morning the husband returns after several hours of fishing and decides to
take a short nap. Although she isn't familiar with the lake, the wife
decides to take the boat. She motors out a short distance, anchors and
continues to read her book. Along comes the game warden in his boat He
pulls up alongside her and says, "Good morning Ma'am What are you doing?"
"Reading my book," she replies, thinking "isn't that obvious?"
"You're in a restricted fishing area," he informs her.
"But officer, I'm not fishing. Can't you see that?"
"Yes, but you have all the equipment. I'll have to take you in and write
 you up."
"If you do that, I'll have to charge you with rape," says the woman.
"But I haven't even touched you," says the game warden.
"That's true, but you do have all the equipment."

MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It's likely she can also think.

The faster you run before slamming into the wall, the more fun
you'll have on the way and the better looking the nurse will be
when you wake up.

There are several kinds of doctors, and it is told that they
can be differentiated by the following method:

  - General practitioners know nothing and do little.
  - Surgeons know little and do everything.
  - Internists knows everything and do nothing.
  - Pathologists know everything and can do everything,
    but it's usually too late.
  - Then there's psychiatrists, who cure dreams...or dream cures.

Just as a young man was about to get a chest XRay, the equipment
slipped and his pelvic region was XRay'd instead.
"Oh, no! cried the lab technician." Your reproductive organs just
received a dose of radiation!"
"What does that mean?" asked the worried young man.
"It's serious," replied the technician. "All your children will
be lawyers!"

"Doctor, don't cut so deep," said the nurse. "That's the third
operating table you've ruined this month!"

In "Pissing in the Snow: Ozark Mountain Folktales", Vance Randolph
tells of a wizened old country doctor who could treat anything.
Well it seems one time, one of the mountain folk came into his office
with three complaints.
"Doc," he said, "I can't taste nothin', I can't tell the truth, and
I can't remember nothin' besides."
Well the old Doc thought about this for a minute and went back into
the apothecary, and made of two capsules full with cow hooey, and gave
them both to the man, and telling him to take one immediately, chewing
Well, the man did as he was told, bit down and started chawing, then
yelled out, "Yeachhhh... This stuff tastes like shee-it."
"Uh huh," the doctor said, "Well I see that you can taste, and you're
certainly telling the truth now. And the next time that your memory is
acting up, just take the other pill."
And the old Doc charged the man fifteen bucks and sent him on his way,
and never did hear no trouble from him much after that.

An anesthesiologist is a doctor who works in the operating room
to delay your pain until such time as you get his bill.

A guy walks into a doctor's office with a lettuce leaf sticking out
of his ass.
Doctor says, "Hmmmm, that's strange."
The guy replies, "That's just the tip of the iceberg."

There was a businessman, and he was not feeling well, so he went to see
the doctor about it. The doctor says to him, "Well, it must be your diet.
What sort of greens do you eat?"
The man replies, "Well, actually, I only eat peas, I hate all other green
The doctor was quite shocked at this and says, "Well man, that's your
problem, all those peas will be clogging up your system, you'll have to
give them up!!"
The guy says, "But for how long? I mean I really like peas!"
The doctor replies, "Forever, I'm afraid."
The man is quite shocked by this, but he gives it a go and sure enough,
his condition improves, so he realizes that he will never eat a pea
again. Anyway, one night, years later, he's at a convention for his
employer and getting quite sloshed, and one of the reps says, "Well,
ashully, I'd love a cigarette, coz I avint ad a smoke in four years,
I gave it up."
Quite a shocker really, and the barman goes, "Really, I haven't had a
game of golf in 3 years, because it cost me my first marriage, so I
gave it up!"
The businessman says, "Thas nuvving, I haven't ad a pea in 6 years."
The barman jumps up screaming, "Okay, everyone who can't swim, grab
a table..."

Death: What some patients do, in the end, to humiliate the doctor.

Subject: Taurus, the Bull  (Apr 21 - May 20)

THE HUMOR LIST ZODIAC (Which one are you?)
Aries (March 21 - April 19) Ruled by Mars; Symbol - The Ram
Aries is the first sign among the twelve in the Zodiac. People under Aries
have strong desire to win. They charge ahead just like their symbol, the
ram; and like their ruling planet, they are very confrontational.

Contributions by Aries are marked by their haste, full of typos and
misspelled words.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Taurus (April 20 - May 20) Ruled by Venus; Symbol - The Bull
People under Taurus have a one way thinking style -- stubborn. As if that
weren't bad enough, their constellation includes the Crab Nebula, a cloud of
gas. They're quite materialistic, love to brag and refuse to admit any

Material submitted to humor lists by Taurus people are not to be believed
under any circumstances.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Gemini (May 21 - June 21) Ruled by Mercury; Symbol - The Twins
A person who was born under Gemini is a genius in social ability. Their
minds are always in rapid speed mode. So named for Castor & Pollux (heroes
in Greek mythology) they're the sons of Leda & Zeus. A Gemini will excel at
any task, under any conditions.

Any Gemini is the shining star of contributors.  These multi-talented people
are the undisputed masters of communication.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Cancer (June 22 - July 22) Ruled by the Moon; Symbol - The Crab
People under the influence of Cancer are very very nervous, grumpy and quite
moody.  They have an inbred desire to control others any way they can.
Cancer people like to spread humor and grumble about others; like a crab,
they charge and/or retreat without warning.

Don't expect these grouches to contribute positive. They love to to check
other posts for errors and flame everyone involved.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Leo (July 23 - Sept 22) Ruled by the Sun; Symbol - The Lion
The head of he constellation Leo is outlined by stars shaped like a sickle.
Thus, most latent communists.  Leos are full of self-confidence like the
lion. They consider themselves to be Kings and/or Queens and expect to be
treated as such.

Leos will submit jokes cleverly designed to invoke unrest among the readers
in an attempt to form a coup and overthrow ListOwners.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22) Ruled by Mercury; Symbol - The Virgin
The most distinguishing feature of a Virgo is that they much more sensitive
than any other sign. They deny the importance of love and sex in their daily
lives and in all humor as well. Some females born under Virgo suffer from a
severe "Pollyanna" complex.

A Virgo will only contribute the most demure of jokes and complain
constantly about any humor they see as off-color, rude or crude.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 23) Ruled by Venus; Symbol - The Scales
The only sign of the Zodiac that doesn't represent a living thing. Libra's
is a balance scale. Hence their behavior. They view everything in terms of
pros or cons. They are great believers in lists and love large menus.

Libras submit jokes where the set-up is equal to the punch line; most Libras
therefore can't stand puns or one-liners.
 - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Scorpio (Oct 24 - Nov 21) Ruled by Pluto; Symbol - The Scorpion
Their constellation contains the star Antmes, which shines with a fiery-red
light (the source of their poison). They never give up in doing anything. A
Scorpio is very patient and will lie in wait for their prey a very long

A Scorpio person will send-in lots of jokes where something dies. They love
dark or evil humor, the bloodier, the better.
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21) Ruled by Jupiter; Symbol - The Archer
People under Sagittarius, the Archers, love what is honest and frank. They
are very open, and will express anything in their minds freely and
explicitly. In idle conversation, never ask a Sagittarius what they think
about anything -- they'll tell you !

Sagittarius people contribute the most explicit sexual jokes on a humor
list. They know and use all of the four letter words.

Subject: Sing to me <explicit>

Children love this one:

Little Johnny stayed with his grandparents and these old people were
sometimes shocked by the language he used.
One day when Johnny was brought to bed by grandma, he said 'I have to
pee first'. 'Now we don't want words like that, won't we! Mind your
'But how do you know I have to pee if I can't tell you?'
'Well,'granny said, 'Instead say: I have to sing'.
'Alright', Johnny said.
In the middle of the night Johnny woke up with an urge. He went to his
grandprents' bedroom, walked to his granddad'sbedside and whispered:
'Granpa, I have to sing!'
'What! Now?? At this time of night??'
'Yes', Johnny said.
'Ok then, do it softly in my ear'.

Subject: Great marriage

A great marriage is not when the "perfect couple" comes together.
It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.

Subject: Oscar's Wildest Moments

--  Upon receiving the Best Supporting Actor Award for "City Slickers" in 1992,
73-year-old Jack Palance demonstrated his virility by doing one-handed pushups.  Palance
then launched into a handspring and caught presenter Whoopi Goldberg off-guard with a
roundhouse kick, sending her sprawling.  Palance locked on the spinning toe hold, forcing
Whoopi to submit.  With the victory, Palance was also awarded Whoopi's Best Supporting
Actress Oscar for "Ghost."

--  Tom Hanks won a best actor award for playing a gay man with AIDS in 1993's
"Philadelphia."  In thanking his high school drama teacher, Hanks unwittingly "outed" his
mentor, Charles Nelson Reilly.

--  Marlon Brando won the Best Actor Oscar for 1972 ("The Godfather"), but in order to
protest Hollywood's treatment of the American Indian, he sent Iron Eyes Cody to the edge
of the stage, a single tear rolling down his cheek.  The Oscar itself, feeling
tremendously rejected, went crying to its room and hid in the closet, where it stayed
until 1993, when it was outed by Tom Hanks.
