     From Tony at Bluehaze:

    Greetings and TGIF!

    Warning:  About 50% of jokes and pics received lately seem to be connected
    in some way to the recent US disaster.  I've included some less offensive
    stuff here.  It has to be remembered that Friday Humour hasn't placed a ban
    on offensive jokes.  Nothing here is taboo.  It's a subscription list and
    anyone can unsubscribe by simply sending an e-mail to Tony or me.

    eg.  This quickie sent in by Stevo  (DON'T READ IF EASILY OFFENDED)

            From Olivine next door:

A man was on holiday in the Caribbean and, liking the warm tropical weather,
settled down for a day's sunbathing.

He fell asleep, and after a whole day his legs became sunburnt beyond
belief. He could hardly stand the pain. He decided to go to the doctor for
treatment. The doctor looked at his lobster-colored legs and shook his head.
"You must realise that this is only a small village surgery," he explained.
"I've really got nothing at all to help you.

However, try taking this just before bedtime..." The doctor gave him one
tablet of Viagra.

Puzzled, the man asked, "I've got acute sunburn: what's a Viagra tablet
going to do?"

"Nothing at all for the sunburn," the doctor replied, "but it will keep the
sheets off your legs.

                Two from Dave at Highett ...

A couple of hunters in the rural south are out in the woods when one of them
falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled
back in his head. The other guy whips out his bat phone and calls 911.

He gasps to the operator, "My friend is dead! What can I do?"

The operator, in a calm soothing voice says, "Just take it easy. I can help.

First, lets make sure he's dead."

.... There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy's voice comes back on
the line.

He says, "OK, now what?

                             Golf anyone?

A man staggers into an emergency room with a concussion, multiple bruises,
two black eyes and a five iron wrapped tightly around his throat. Naturally
the doctor asks him what happened.

"Well, it was like this", said the man.

"I was having a quiet round of golf with my wife, when at a difficult
hole, we both sliced our balls into a pasture of cows."

"We went to look for them and while I was rooting around I noticed one of
the cows had something white at its rear end. I walked over and lifted up
the tail, and sure enough, there was a golf ball with my wife's monogram
on it, stuck right in the middle of the cow's butt. That's when I made my

"What did you do?" asks the doctor.

"Well, I lifted the tail and yelled to my wife, 'Hey! This looks like yours!'"

        A golden oldie from Cr Maddus Mickus from Marwickus ...

On a really hot day a flea saw his mate on the Costa del Sol shivering with cold.

"Why are you shivering, mate?" he asked.

"Well I've just arrived from Britain in a man's moustache, and he rode a
motorcycle all the way ... I'm freezing."

"Well you should do as I do, wait at the airport for the Costa del Sol flight,
then crawl up the leg of a beautiful girl, climb into her knickers and camp
in her bush until she gets here. That way you keep lovely and warm."

A year passes ...  The flea once again saw his same mate on the beach on the
Costa del Sol shivering with cold.

"Didn't you do as I said," asked the flea.

"I did, I did. I crawled up the leg of a beautiful girl and camped in her bush.
Then there was an almighty storm I think. There was a thumping and a rolling,
then I found myself in the moustache of the same man that I came with last year
and on the same motorcycle."

          From QCAT in the Brissie sun:

                     THE CLINTON ERA WRAP UP ...

After much argument and deliberation, historians this week have come up with
a phrase to describe the Clinton Era. It will be called "Sex between the

The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta announced that Clinton has
proven that you CAN get sex from Aides.

Jennifer Flowers was asked if her relationship with Clinton was anything like
Monica Lewinski's. She replied, "Close - but no cigar."

The FBI has coined a technical term for the stains found on Monica's dress -

Arkansas is very proud of Bill Clinton. All these women coming forward, and not
one is his sister!

     From the Waterford Wackers (from the latest Dilbert Nwsletter ...)

                    True Tales of Induhviduals

We sent a message to our wholesaler asking what happened to two orders of
underwear that were 60 days late. The answer I got back was, "Sorry, they
fell through the cracks."

A local museum here in Nova Scotia has a display about early French
settlers. My friend once overheard a visitor commenting on the wooden shoes
shown in the costume display, "I didn't know the French were Dutch!"

On my way to school I saw a pickup truck towing a car using nothing but a
rope. No one was in the towed car and it was moving at a good clip. Needless
to say, when the pickup stopped at a red light the towed car smashed into
the back of it, demolishing both vehicles."

I recently had to call German Telekom to get my new bat phone switched on.
I asked the call center guy how long it would take and he said, "Well,
usually it only takes 48 hours, but we're experiencing technical
difficulties right now, so it'll take about two days."

Last week I was sitting in the teacher's lounge at the high school where I
work. One of my colleagues, an English teacher, was lamenting the poor
behavior of her students, and longing for the return of "corporate

                         The Dead Cat Test

A kindergarten pupil told his teacher he'd found a cat. She asked if it was
dead or alive.

"Dead," she was informed.

"How do you know?", she asked.

"Because I pissed in his ear and it didn't move," said the child innocently.

"You did WHAT?!?", the teacher squealed in surprise.

"You know," explained the boy, "I leaned over and went 'pssst' and he didn't

A funeral service is being held for a woman who has just passed away.

At the end of the service the pall bearers are carrying the casket out when

They open the casket and find the woman is actually alive.

       you would have $79 today.

       My advice to you is to start drinking..."
