Subject: Arab Newspaper

A story is told of a Jewish man who was riding on the subway
reading an Arab newspaper. A friend of his, who happened to
be riding in the same subway car, noticed this strange phenomenon.
Very upset, he approached the newspaper reader:

"Moshe, have you lost your mind? Why are you reading an
Arab newspaper?"

Moshe replied: "I used to read the Jewish newspaper, but what
did I find?  Jews being persecuted, Israel being attacked, Jews
disappearing through assimilation and intermarriage, Jews living
in poverty. So I switched to the Arab newspaper.  Now what do
I find? Jews own all the banks, Jews control the media, Jews are
all rich and powerful, Jews rule the world. The news is so much
better... "

John Kerry cited a Bible verse Sunday to criticize leaders who have
"faith but has no deeds."
A Bush campaign spokesman decried the use of religion in politics.
He was immediately hit by lightning and his ashes eaten by locusts.



Dear Sen. John Kerry and Democrats in general,

This is just to inform you that a protest has been filed with the
Federal Elections Commission in response to the recent Kerry
tactic of quoting scripture against the President of all these
United States.

We would also like to put on record, now, that invoking one
of the Ten Commandments - specifically the one about "bearing
false witness" - would be an unfair, partisan plot by Democrats
to baselessly impugn President Saint George.

The Heritage Foundation,

Subject: The Errand <may be off. to the Irish>

McQuillan walked into a bar and ordered martini after martini, each
time removing the olives and placing them in a jar. When the jar was
filled with olives and all the drinks consumed, the Irishman started to
leave. "S' cuse me", said a customer, who was puzzled over what
McQuillan had done, "what was that all about?"

"Nothin", said the Irishman, "me wife just sent me out for a jar of

Subject: Magic powder

The other morning I took a pair of underwear out of the drawer.

"What the hell?" I said to myself as a little "dust" cloud appeared when
I shook them out.

"Woman," I hollered into the bathroom, "why did you put talcum powder in
my underwear?"

She shot back: "It's not talcum powder. It's 'Miracle Grow'."

Procrastinating is like masturbating: You're only fucking yourself.

"Watching your daughter being collected by her date feels
like handing over a million dollar Stradivarius to a gorilla."
     ---Jim Bishop

Upset over a newlywed squabble with my husband, I went to my mother to
complain.  Trying to console me, my dad said that men are not all like
this all the time. "Nonsense," I said.  "Men are good for only one
thing!" "Yes," my mother interjected, "but how often do you have to
parallel park?"

Integrity Is Like Oxygen
The Higher You Go The Less There Is.

The Federal Witness Protection Program has come up with a sure-fire
method for making absolutely certain that people entering the program
are NEVER found by anyone. They just change the witness's name to G.
