The following is a status report from our business unit to our Y2K

"Our staff has completed the 3 years of work on time and on budget.
We have gone through every line of code in every program in every
system. We have analyzed all databases, all data files, including
backups and historic archives, and modified all data to reflect the

We are proud to report that we have completed the "Y-to-K" date
change mission, and have now implemented all changes to all programs
and all data to reflect the following new standards

I  trust that this is satisfactory, because to be honest, none of
this Y to K problem has made any sense to me. But I understand it is
a global problem, and our team is glad to help in any way possible.
And what does the year 2000 have to do with it?  Speaking of which,
what do you think we ought to do next year when the two digit year
rolls over from 99 to 00?   We'll await your direction.


And from the irrepressible Martha (the one who didn't win the Mars bar!)

Arthur Davidson, of the Harley Davidson Motorcycle Corporation, dies and
goes to heaven. At the gates, an angel tells Davidson, "Well, you've been
such a good guy and your motorcycles have changed the world. As a reward,
you can hang out with anyone you want to in Heaven." Davidson thinks about
it and says, "I wanna hang out with God, Himself." The befeathered fellow
at the Gates takes Arthur to the Throne Room and introduces him to God.

Arthur then asks God, "Hey, aren't you the inventor of Woman?" God says,
"Ah, yes." "Well," says Davidson, "You have some major design flaws in
your invention

1.    there's too much front end protrusion
2.    it chatters at high speeds
3.    the rear end wobbles too much, and
4.    the intake is placed too close to the exhaust.

"Hmmm..." replied God, "hold on."

God goes to the Celestial Supercomputer, types in a few keystrokes, and
waits for the result. The computer prints out a slip of paper and God
reads it.

"It may be that my invention is flawed," God replies to Arthur Davidson,
"but according to My Computer, more people are riding my invention than

The next from Stevo - the Devo ...

A man walks up to the bar, with a big ostrich behind him, and as he stops
at the bar, a small cat jumps up onto the bar stool next to him. The
comes over,
regards the three rather curiously, and asks "What'll it be?".

To which the man replies "Well, I'll have a pint," and turning to the
ostrich, "what do you want?"

"I'll have a pint as well," replies the ostrich.

The man looks down at the cat and says "I suppose you want a drink too?"

To which the cat replies, "I'll have a half, but I ain't fuckin' paying!"

The barman pulls two and a half pints and says "That'll be three pounds
forty please". To the barman's surprise the man puts his hand in his
pocket, feels around, and pulls out exactly 3.40 in loose change, which he
puts on the bar.

A while later the same thing happens. The man, the ostrich and the small
cat come back to the bar. "I'll have pint" says the man.

"I'll have a pint," says the ostrich.

"And I'll have a half, but I ain't fuckin paying," says the cat.

"That'll be three pounds forty" says the barman, and again the man puts
hand in his pocket, feels around and pulls out exactly 3.40.

This goes on several times, much to the bemusement of the barman. Finally,
as last orders are rung, the man the ostrich and the cat come back to the

"Well" says the man "it's last orders, I think I'll have a large scotch",
and turning to the ostrich "what do you want?"

"I'll have a large scotch as well" replies the ostrich.

Turning to the small cat on the stool next to him, the man says "and I
suppose you want something as well?"

"I'll have a small scotch" says the cat, "but I ain't fuckin' payin'."

The barman rings up the drinks in the till, and says to the man, with a
sly grin on his face, that'll be seven pounds twenty please" To his
amazement and disbelief the man puts his hand in his pocket, feels about
and pulls out exactly 7.20 in loose change. As the three finish their
drinks and are about to leave, the barman cannot contain his curiosity no
longer. "Excuse me sir, but before you leave there is something I must do you always manage to come up with the exact change from
your pocket, every time?"

"Well" says the man, "it's a long story, but basically several years ago I
looked after an old lady who was well into her nineties, and when she died
she left me her old house, nothing special, but when I was clearing out
the attic I found an old lamp, and when I rubbed the lamp a genie appeared
and offered me two wishes."

"Well that's fantastic" says the barman, "what did you wish for?"

"Well," says the man, "if I ever need to pay for anything I just put my
hand in my pocket, and the right money will always be there."

"That's brilliant" says the barman, "most people would just ask for a
million pounds or something, but you will always be as rich as you want
for as long as you want."

"Oh yes" says the man, "its the greatest thing I ever did. If I want to
a pint of milk the money will always be there. If I want to buy a Rolls
Royce the exact money will be there too!"

As the man turns to go, the barman calls him back and says "one last thing
sir, your friends... we don't get many cats or ostriches drinking in

To which the man looks glum and replies "well, that was probably the worst
thing I ever did... you see I had two wishes, and on my second wish I
asked for a bird with long legs and a tight pussy."


And of course something coarse from The List ... way out west ...

Two guys are in a locker room when one guy notices the other guy has a
cork in his ass.

He says, "How'd you get a cork in your ass?"

The other guy says, "I was walking along the beach and I tripped over
a lamp.  There was a puff of smoke, and then a red man in a turban
came oozing out. He said, "I am Tonto, Indian Genie. I can grant-um
you one wish."

And I said, "No shit."
