Subject: Yuppette Dating <some adult humor>

* Father to Yuppette's boyfriend, who arrived to take her on a date:
  "She'll be right down.  Care for a game of chess ?"
                                - - - - -

* One Yuppette to another: "He likes my company, and I just love his.
  I think it's called the First Fidelity Trust."
                                - - - - -

* Two Yuppettes were discussing their current relationships: "At first
  he seemed dull and uninteresting, but when you finally get to know
  him, he's downright boring."
                                - - - - -

* The Yuppette was considering the proposal of marriage she had just
  received:  "Let me hear that part again where you realize you're not
  half good enough for me."
                                - - - - -

* The Yuppette was standing on the porch, with her Mother, watching her
  boyfriend depart:  "But Mother, I'm positive he's been faithful to me.
  The seat belts never need readjusting."
                                - - - - -

* The Yuppette was obviously tiring of her current beau when she asked:
  "When people ask me what I see in you Raymond, what shall I tell them ?"
                                - - - - -

* The bored Yuppette said to her date: "I think I'll have another drink.
  It makes you so witty and charming."
                                - - - - -

* The Yuppette was trying to reassure her lover during sex: "Of course
  you're not the first man I've made love to.  You know I think more of
  you than to just use you as a guinea pig."

From:    Michael Pollak <mpollak@PANIX.COM>
Subject: Australian story

The following is excerted from Robyn Davidson's _Tracks_, a feminist
adventure-travelogue through the deserts of Australia:

One of the potters who had lived there before had told me a very funny
story about this remarkable woman.  They had all been sitting at home one
night, listening to the sounds of drunken battle wafting over from Ada's
camp.  Suddenly, the shouts became louder and more urgent and my friend
went over to see if there was any trouble.  He arrived in time to see
Ada's boyfriend staggering around the shack emptying a can of petrol on
the way, then bending down with shaking fingers, trying to light the
stuff.  It had all sunk into the dust by then, so there was no real
danger, but Ada was not to know that.  She had gone to the woodpile,
picked up the axe and felled the man with one blow.  He dropped flat on
his back, blood streaming from the wound into the ground around him.  My
friend thought for sure Ada had killed him and screamed at the others to
run for an ambulance.  Being so certain there was nothing he could do for
the bloody body, he did what he could for Ada who was by then in shock.
With trembling fingers he wrapped her in a blanket and handed her some of
his tequila.  There was a groan behind him.  The man struggled on to an
elbow, fixed my friend with a swaying glare and said, "For Christ's sake,
man, can't you see she's had enough?"

Subject: KICKING THE GAMBLING HABIT (off. to teachers??)

 It was little Johnny's first day in a new school, so his father looked up
 the teacher. He told her that little Johnny was a good kid but that he
 was an avid gambler. He warned her that little Johnny might win lunch
 money from the other kids if he was not watched closely. The teacher did
 not seem disturbed, assured the father that she had handled many such
 problems and was very capable of taking care of little Johnny's urge to

 Shortly after lunch, the father called the teacher and asked her how
 things were going. "Oh, everything is going very well." She said. "I
 think I may have cured little Johnny of his gambling habit." The father
 asked her what had happened. "The little tyke absolutely insisted on
 betting me ten dollars that I had a mole on my rear." She said. "I
 finally agreed to the bet and took him to the teacher's lounge to show
 him that I had no mole." "Damn!" The father said. "He bet me fifty
 dollars this morning that he would see the teacher's ass before the day
 was over."

Subject: Politicians: should we warn them?

While writing the story about the snake and the rabbit, I thought
what a pity it was to give away the punch-line in the warning. This
brought to mind a great South African, CJ Langenhoven - author, wit
and politician ... in bygone days when politicians still commanded a
measure of respect.

One day, in the House of Assembly (we follow the British system
here), Langenhoven declared that "half the Members of Parliament
are asses."

The Speaker immediately demanded an apology, to which Langenhoven
responded: "I apologize. Half the Members are not asses."

So why warn them? One half wouldn't understand, the other
half wouldn't care!

Subject: Tact

  A maharajah who entertained Neysa McMein in
  India many winters ago querried a servant on
  the progress she was making in hunting: "The
  beautiful lady shoots divinely," reported the
  impecable Hindu, "but Providence is merciful
  to the birds."

Subject: QE I and QE II <gross, off. to olfactorily enhanced)

Lize Lubbe's tale of QE I and the Royal fart submitted a few days ago
reminds me of the tale of her descendent's experience with the same
unpleasant odor.

The King of Spain was visiting Queen Elizabeth II a few years back, I
hear, and she treated him to a Royal Parade through the streets of London.
She, Prince Phillip, and the Spanish king were riding in a gilded open
carriage drawn by ten beautiful white horses.  Just the parade was ending
and the cortege turned into the palace grounds, one of the rear horses let
out the most outrageous farts ever heard by English or Spanish ear.


The Queen blushed and rushed to offer, "I'm so DREADFULLY sorry!"
The King responded, "I thought it was the HORSE!"

Said a man in a bar to another man:
'You know, without the moustache you just look like my wife'.

Subject: One liners

One Designer had such bad handwriting they'd only sell his jeans in Drug

Then there was the guy in jail because of jealousy.  He was trying to
make the same kind of money as the government.

The way it's been going, the future tense of "invest" is "investigation".

Somebody just came up with a great idea for married people at breakfast.
It is cellophane newspaper.

If necessity is the mother of invention, how come so much unnecessary
stuff is invented?

The thermos is a great invention. How does it know when to keep things
hot and when to keep them cold?

After surgery, they put me in the expensive care unit.

Insomnia: the triumph of mind over mattress

I just bought a state-of-the-art washer/dryer. It talk. This morning it
told me what it did with the other sock.
