Subject: Joke-Rated: class act

     Once there was a prostitute who had three different rates based on the
     following three conditions:
     1) $10.00 to do it on the grass.
     2) $20.00 to do it on a couch.
     3) $30.00 to do it in the bed.

     It's in the morning when a Mexican walks in and slaps a $10 bill on
     the table.  So they go out and do it on the grass.

     Around noon, an American walks in and slaps
     a $20 bill on the table. So they go for the couch and do it on there.

     About the end on the day, an Indian walks
     in and slaps $30 on the table.  Happy from seeing
     the money the prostitute says, "Wow,... you have class"

     The Indian responds, "Class my ass... Three times on the grass..

Subject: Nun Humor (poss. off.)

These come from a friend and fellow humor fundi, Thea Coetzee...
Four nuns were standing in line at the gates of heaven.  Peter asks the
first if she has ever sinned.  "Well, once I looked at a man's penis," she
said.  "Put some of this holy water on your eyes and you may enter heaven,"
Peter told her.  Peter then asked the second nun if she had ever sinned.
"Well, once I held a man's penis," she replied.  "Put your hand in this holy
water and you may enter heaven," he said.  Just then the fourth nun pushed
ahead of the third nun.  Peter asked her, "Why did you push ahead in line?"
She said, "Because I want to gargle before she sits in it!"
     The seven dwarfs are in Rome and they go on a tour of the city.
After a while they go to the Vatican and meet the pope.  Grumpy, for once,
seems to have a lot to say; he keeps asking the pontiff questions about the
church, and in particular, nuns.
     "Your Holiness, do you have any really short nuns?"
     "No, my son, all our nuns are at least five feet tall."
     "Are you sure?  I mean, you wouldn't have any nuns that are, say,
about my height?  Maybe a little shorter?"
     "I'm afraid not.  Why do you ask?"
     "No reason."  Pause.  "Positive?  Nobody in a habit that's about three
feet tall, two and a half feet tall?"
     "I'm sure."
     Grumpy looks dejected at this news, and the pope wonders why.  So he
listens to the dwarfs as they leave the building.
     "What'd he say?  What'd he say?"  chant the other six dwarfs.
     Grumpy says, "He said they don't have any."
     And the other six start chanting, "Grumpy fucked a penguin!  Grumpy
fucked a penguin!  Grumpy fucked a penguin!"....
     A nun and a priest were traveling across the desert and realized
halfway across that the camel they were using for transportation
was about to die. They set up a make-shift camp, hoping someone would come
to their rescue, but to no avail. Soon the camel died.
 After several days of not being rescued, they agreed that they were not
going to be rescued. They prayed a lot (of course), and
they discussed their predicament in great depth.
     Finally the priest said to the nun, "You know, Sister, I am about to
die, and there's always been one thing I've wanted here on
earth -- to see a woman naked. Would you mind taking off your clothes so I
can look at you?"
     The nun thought about his request for several seconds and then agreed
to take off her clothes. As she was doing so, she remarked,
"Well, Father, now that I think about it, I've never seen a man naked,
either. Would you mind taking off your clothes, too?"
     With little hesitation, the priest also stripped. Suddenly the nun
exclaimed, "Father! What is that little thing hanging between your legs?"
     The priest patiently answered, "That, my child, is a gift from God. If
I put it in you, it creates a new life."
     "Well," responded the nun, "forget about me. Stick it in the camel!"
     Three nuns who had recently died where on their way to heaven. At the
pearly gates they were met by St. Peter. Around the gates there was a
collection of lights and bells.
     St. Peter stopped them and told them that they would each have to
answer a question before they could enter through the pearly gates.
     St. Paul: "What were the names of the two people in the garden of Eden?"
     1st nun : "Adam and Eve"
     The lights flashed the bells rang and in she went through the pearly gates.
     St. Paul: "What did Adam eat from the forbidden tree ?"
     2nd nun : "An apple"
     The lights flashed the bells rang and in she went through the pearly gates.
     And finally it came the turn of the last nun.
     St. Paul : "What was the first thing Eve said to Adam ?"
     After a few minutes thinking she says "Gosh, that's a hard one!"
     The lights flashed the bells rang and in she went through the pearly gates!
A nun gets on a bus and sits behind the driver.  She says to the bus driver
she is very ill and wants to experience sex before she dies.  The bus driver
agrees to accomodate her, but the nun explains that she can't have sex with
anyone who is married as that would be a sin.  The bus driver says No
problem, he is not married.  The nun says she also has to die a virgin, so
she will have to take it in the ass.  The bus driver agrees again. Being the
only two on the bus, they go to the back of the bus and take care of
business.  When they were done, and he had resumed driving, he said "Sister,
I have a confession to make.  I am married and have three children".  The
nun replies: "Thats OK.  I have a confession too:  My name is Dave, and I am
on my way to a costume party".

would share them with you!  To quote the proverbial bathroom wall:

Subject: True story of a British Ambassador <NOT off. to British - I am one!>

Here is another True Story....

*note* - CBC = Canadian Broadcasting Company (a Canadian TV station).

  In the weeks before Christmas the British ambassador in Canada received
a phone call from the CBC. The CBC rep. on the other end of the line thanked
the ambassadorfor his prompt arrival at interviews etc, and for a generally
good year. The ambassador returned the thanks.  Then the CBC rep. asked the
ambassador what he wanted for Christmas. Thinking that he might get into
trouble if he accepted a gift the ambassador said that he didn't think that
it was a very good idea. However, The CBC rep. insisted, and in the end the
ambassador said that he wanted a small box of crystallised fruits. The CBC
rep seemed a little puzzled at this answer but they ended the conversation
and the ambassador thought nothing more of it.
  Later that month, on Boxing Day, the ambassador was sitting watching the
news on TV with his family when he saw this item at the end:
  "Before Christmas we asked three foreign ambassadors what they
wanted for Christmas. The French ambassador said that he wanted world
peace and an end to suffering, the German ambassador said that he wanted
a cure for cancer and the British ambassador said that he wanted a
small box of crystallised fruits....."

Subject: Farm Life

There was this young boy who was being raised on the farm.  Everyday before
breakfast, he was required to perform chores.  After his chores were
completed, his mother would make him a large breakfast then off to school he
would go.

One morning, he decided he did not WANT to do his chores.  He went down the
steps to the kitchen and demanded of his mother to serve him breakfast.  She
replied, "Oh, no, son...I will fix you breakfast AFTER you do you chores."

The son was MAD.  Outside he went, slamming the door behind him.  He walks
over to the chickens, throws them their feed and KICKS the last chicken.

He walks over to the pigs, throws them their slop and KICKS the last pig.

Next he goes to the cows, milks them all and KICKS the last cow.

He returns to the kitchen only to find his mother very angry with him.  She
said, "I SAW what you did young man; you kicked the last chicken -NO EGGS
FOR YOU; you kicked the last pig - NO BACON FOR YOU; you kicked the last cow

With that the father comes down the stairs.  The Mother's cat races past him
almost tripping the father on the last step.  The father hawls off and kicks
the cat.

The son looks up to the mother and says, "Should I tell him or should you??"

Subject: Happy ending <clean>

This is taken from a series of ads by Domtar, a paper company:

".....and that's when I realized that Old Yeller, my most loyal friend, the dog
that had saved my mama and my little brother and me from bears and wolves and
wild boars, had rabies. My arms were shaking and my eyes were blurry with tears
as I raised my rifle and aimed it right between Old Yeller's big, trusting eyes.
And then, as my finger tightened on the trigger, I discovered that my best
friend wasn't really rabid at all but had just been eating some soap, so I
hugged that big yeller dog and he licked my face and we wrestled around in the
grass and then ran off into the sunset together.


more to come later.....

Subject: an M.D. in Hades

 A physician passed away and was being screened for the destination of his
 soul's eternal afterlife. Unfortunately he'd been a bit of a lout, a quack,
 and greedy to boot, so he wasn't quite certain what to expect. Upon his
 arrival at the Pearly Gates, Saint Peter greeted him and informed the Doctor
 that he would be allowed to choose from one of the doors before him, but that
 because of his greed and misdeeds, he may find the choices rather hellish.
 Upon opening door #1, he witnessed fire and brimstone of truly Biblical
 proportions, a horrifying sight, and quickly closed it. Upon viewing the
 spectacle behind door #2, he was even more horrified to observe various
 tortured souls ravaged by plague, disease, and other maladies too terrible to
 mention, while an evil guard stood watch. With trepidation he opened door #3
 to discover therein groups of white-coated male physicians, being waited on
 hand and foot by beautiful young women dressed in little more than nursing
 caps! He rushed excitedly back to Saint Peter and proclaimed, "I'll take door
 #3!" "Oh, no, I'm afraid that's not possible," exclaimed Saint Peter. "That's
 NURSES' Hell!"

  "Good evening ladies", Sherlock Holmes said as he passed three
  women eating bananas on a park bench.

  "Do you know them?" Dr. Watson asked. "No", Holmes replied,
  "I've never met the nun, the prostitute or the bride we just

  "Good Lord, Holmes, how in the world did you know all that?"

  "Elementary, my dear Watson. The nun ate the banana by holding
  it one hand and using the fingers of the other hand to properly
  break the fruit into small pieces."

  "The prostitute", he continued, "grabbed with both hands and
  crammed the whole thing into her mouth."

  "Amazing!" Watson exclaimed. "But how did you know the third
  was a newlywed?"

  "Because she held it one hand and pushed her head toward it
  with the other."

Subject: Microsoft Humor - clean

"One of Microsoft's tech support reps was drafted and sent to boot camp. At the
rifle range, he was given some instruction, a rifle, and bullets. He fired
several shots at the target. The report came from the target area that all
attempts had completely missed the target.

The Microsoft tech rep looked at his rifle and then at the target again. He
looked at the rifle again, and then at the target again. He put his finger over
the end of the rifle barrel and squeezed the trigger with his other hand. The
end of his finger was blown off, whereupon he yelled toward the target area:
"It's leaving here just fine. The trouble must be at your end!"
