Subject: The Gentle Sex <adult humor>

*   Some time after their bitter divorce, a man happened to pull up
  alongside his ex-wife at a traffic signal.  He shouted over "So...
  out looking for a little, huh ?"
    She smiled sweetly and said,  "No, I had 6 years of that with you.
  I'm out looking for a LOT !"
                                - - - - -

*   Things weren't going too well for the husband business-wise and
  he got his wife an imitation tennis bracelet, instead of the real one
  she wanted for their anniversary.  "I hope you understand sweetheart,
  but you can pretend it's real."
    "Fine !" she said pouting, "And tonite in bed, you can pretend I'm
  there under you."
                                - - - - -

*   It wasn't until their second date that the girl realized the man she
  was with was a braggart.  They were doubling with another couple for
  dinner, and the man said to her: "Instead of dessert, how about we just
  go to my place, and I'll slip ya nine inches."
    "Hmmmmm." responded the girl.  "I hadn't realized that you could get
  it up three times in a row."
                                - - - - -

*   "When I realized that I couldn't satisfy my wife's insatiable sex
  appetite," the man said to his drinking buddy, "I bought her quite an
  assortment of every sex toy made, thinking that would keep her faithful."
    "Did it work ?" asked the friend.
    "Well, kinda..." the man replied.  "But now, every time I do feel like
  a little, I find myself 3rd or 4th in line."
                                - - - - -

*   My wife and I were in bed, when she suddenly said, "Don't you think
  it's time Joel (our daughter's boyfriend) went home ?"
    I told her, "Awwww come on honey, don't ya remember what it was like
  when we were dating ?  Give the kid a break."
    There was total silence for like 5 seconds, then she leaped out of bed
  and shouted, "I'm throwing that little S.o.B. out of the house NOW !"

Subject: Little Johnny  <adult themes>

   Little Johnny was sitting in class one day. On this particular day,
   the teacher wanted to ask her class which part of the body went to
   heaven first.

   One little girl raised her hand and said, "I think your mind goes
   to heaven first because you have to have a mind in order to
   believe in God."

   The teacher praises the little girl as a little boy raises his hand.
   He says, "I think your heart goes to heaven first because God is all
   about love."

   "Very good," said the teacher.  The teacher looked up and saw Little
   Johnny's hand up. "Oh no," she thought, "I'm not gonna like this."

   "Johnny, which part of the body do you think goes to heaven first?"

   Little Johnny thinks for a minute and says, "Your feet."  The
   teacher asked him why he thought your feet go to heaven first. He
   "Well, I was walking past my parents' bedroom last night and my mom
   had her feet up in the air and she said, 'Oh God, I'm coming!'"

Subject: Tax Matters <clean>

Recently, a Tax Inspector came to see me. After wearing a garlic
necklace, I was ready to meet him. What follows is an
excerpt of our conversation  (M:Moi, I: Inspector).

I: May I see your accounting books?
M: Of course, here they are: Accounting Made Easy, Accounting For
People Who Cannot Count, The Taxman Lestat...
I: You don't keep your accounts on books?
M: No, I don't, you see, books are already printed, there's no space to write
on them.
I: Where do you keep your accounts?
M: In my head.
I: How am I supposed to inspect them?
M: Hypnotize me, I suppose.
I: How about VAT returns?
M: VAT returns? That's great! I was not aware that it had left. Where
did it go, by the way?
I: I don't believe this. Don't you have any records, at all?
M: Of course I do have records, I have some early recordings by
Busoni, made in 1928, very rare, and the complete collection of
Beethoven sonatas, recorded by Arthur Schnabel in Berlin, before the
war and...
I: Have you ever paid taxes?
M: Excusez-moi, je ne parle pas l'Anglais.
I: I need two aspirins....

(VAT: Value Added Tax, roughly comparable to the Sales Tax, in some
Sates, in the USA).

Mammy has told her little girl all about the making of babies.
Little Annie is now silent for a while.
'You understand it now ?' mammy asks.
'Yes,' replies her daughter.
'Do you still have any questions ?'
Yes, how about little kittens, how does that work ?'
'In exactly the same way as with babies'.
'Wow,' the girl exclaims, 'my daddy can do ANYTHING !'

Subject: Barbender (off. to drunks)

 A very inebrieted lady walks into a bar, shortly before closing time,
 sits at the bar and orders: "Barbender, barbender, I would like a
 Martoutsy". The bartender brings her a Martini, which she drinks in one
 gulp. "Barberder, I would like another Martoutsy", again the bartender
 brings her a Martini. By this time the lady is leaning heavily forward,
 barely able to hang on. She calls: "Barbender, your Martoutsys are giving
 me heartburn". Patiently, the bartender comes near her and says: "Lady, I
 am not a barbender, but a bartender, and what you have been drinking is
 not a Martoutsy, but a Martini, and finally, you do not have heartburn,
 your tit is hanging in the ashtray".

Subject: Law Enforcement (off. to animals)

The LAPD, The FBI, and the CIA are all trying to prove that they are the
best at apprehending criminals. The President decides to give them a test.
He releases a rabbit into a forest and each of them has to catch it.

The CIA goes in. They place animal informants throughout the forest.  They
question all plant and mineral witnesses. After three months of extensive
investigations they conclude that rabbits do not exist.

The FBI goes in. After two weeks with no leads they burn the forest,
killing everything in it, including the rabbit, and they make no
apologies.  The rabbit had it coming.

The LAPD goes in. They come out two hours later with a badly beaten bear.
The bear is yelling: "Okay! Okay! I'm a rabbit! I'm a rabbit!'

Subject: College grads gift toDad

A lumberjack had raised his only son & had managed to finance the young
man's college education by the only way he knew how, cutting down trees,
by hand.

The young man had helped his father cut down some of those trees.  He
knew how hard his father had to work to put him through college.

When the son started college he  promised himself the first thing he
would do was to buy his father a present that would make the old man's
life easier.

The son saved & scrimped & finally had enough money to purchase the
finest chain saw in the world.

On a school vacation the son asks his dad how many trees could he cut
down in one day.  The father a large husky man thought and said on a good
day he was able to bring down 20 trees.

The son gave the father the brand new chain saw & said from now on he
would be able to triple the amount and only work half as hard.

The old man was very pleased and said he had the best son in the world.

The young man left for school the next morning & wasn't able to return
until the next school break, 3 months later.

When he arrived he immediately noticed that his dad appeared run down.
He asked if his father was feeling alright.

The old man replied that cutting trees was getting harder & harder & now
with the new chain saw he was working longer hours but not cutting as
many trees as before.

The son knew there was something wrong & thought perhaps the saw he
purchased wasn't as good as advertised.  He asked to check it out

Upon examining it he checked the oiler & it was full.  He checked the gas
& it too was full.  He yanked on the cord & immediately it roared to

His father grabbed him by the shirt & hollered

Subject: The ensign

The new ensign was standing his first night watch on the bridge of a
destroyer.  Far out on the horizon the USS New Jersey was conducting a
night gunnery exercise.  The ensign, seeing the flashes of light from the
battleship, ran excitedly up to the signal bridge and pointed out the
"Morse code" coming from the other ship.
Ensign:  "What are they saying?  What are they saying?"
Signalman:  "Boom.  Boom."
