[ from Davo at Bluehaze ]
Right up to the November 7 US elections King George, President of the Free
World, kept assuring us that America was winning the war in Iraq.
Bush keeps maintaining that he believes in democracy and wants to spread
his version across the globe. He described the Democrats win as a
yet still doesn't listen to his people. He commissioned an Iraq survey
report and still doesn't listen to his experts.
He's finally admitted that he should accept responsibly for all the
failures in Iraq. But how? Will he go before the International Court in
Not bloody likely!
He's decided to waste more money and cause further maiming death and
destruction in the sovereign state that he illegally invaded on a pack of
He's increasing his troop numbers by 16.6%, but never fear - it's not an
escalation ... it's just a surge (albeit with no ending date in sight).
May God help us all.
First up are these from Stephen the Joker
A father was explaining the facts of life to his son. After covering the
basic biology, he moved on to the finer points of love-making:
F: One thing to keep in mind, son, is that different women say different
things during the act, even if you are doing the same thing.
S: What do you mean, Dad?
F: Well, for example, their words will vary according to their occupation.
For example, a prostitute will tend to say, "Are you done yet?" On the
other hand, a nymphomaniac will ask, "Are you done already?"
S: What do other women say?
F: Well, a school teacher will say, "We are going to do this over and over
again until you get it right!" A nurse will say, "This won't hurt one
S: I thought they said, "Pull down your pants and bend over."
F: That's male nurses. Moving on, a bank teller will say, "Substantial
penalty for early withdrawal." A stewardess will say, "Place this over
your mouth and nose and breathe normally."
S: And what does mother say?
F: She says, "Beige... beige... I think we should paint the ceiling beige."
A woman offered a brand-new car for sale for a price of ten dollars.
A man answered the ad, but he was slightly skeptical. "What's the gimmick?"
"No gimmick," the woman answered. "My husband died, and in his will he
asked that the car be sold and the money go to his secretary."
In a train carriage there were Bill Clinton, George W Bush, a spectacular
looking blonde and a frightfully awful looking fat lady. After several
minutes of the trip, the train passes through a dark tunnel, and the
unmistakable sound of a slap is heard. When they leave the tunnel,
Clinton had a big red slap mark on his cheek.
(1) The blonde thought - "That rascal Clinton wanted to touch me and by
mistake, he must have put his hand on the fat lady, who in turn must have
slapped his face."
(2) The fat lady thought - "That dirty old Bill Clinton laid his hands on
the blonde and she smacked him."
(3) Bill Clinton thought - "George put his hand on that blonde and by
mistake she slapped me."
(4) George Bush thought - "I hope there's another tunnel soon so I can

Cuddles on Safari
A wealthy old lady decides to go on a photo safari in Africa, taking her
faithful aged poodle named Cuddles, along for the company.
One day the poodle starts chasing butterflies and before long, Cuddles
discovers that he's lost.. Wandering about, he notices a leopard heading
rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch. The old
poodle thinks, "Oh, oh! I'm in deep doo-doo now!" Noticing some bones on
the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with
his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard is about to leap the
old poodle exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious leopard! I wonder
if there are any more around here?"
Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of
terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. "Whew!", says the
leopard, "That was close! That old poodle nearly had me!"
Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby
tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for
protection from the leopard. So off he goes, but the old poodle sees him
heading after the leopard with great speed, and figures that something
must be up. The monkey soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans
and strikes a deal for himself with the leopard. The young leopard is
furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here, monkey, hop on my back
and see what's going to happen to that conniving canine!
The old poodle sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back and
thinks, "What am I going to do now?", but instead of running, the dog sits
down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet,
and just when they get close enough to hear, the old poodle says. "Where's
that damn monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard!
Moral of this story...
Don't mess with old farts... age and treachery will always overcome youth
and skill! Baloney and brilliance only come with age and experience.

Rugby World Cup 2007
Following complaints made to the IRB about the All Blacks being allowed to
motivate themselves by performing the 'Haka' before their games, other
nations were asked to suggest pre-match rituals of their own.
The IRB Rugby World Cup 2007 Organising Committee has now agreed to the
following pre-match displays:
A.. The England team will chat about the weather, wave hankies in the air
and attach bells to their ankles before moaning about how they invented
the game and gave it to the world, and how it's not fair that everyone
still thinks New Zealand are the best team in the world.
B.. The Scotland team will chant "You lookin' at me Jimmy?" before smashing
an Iron Bru bottle over their opponents' heads.
C.. The Ireland team will split into two, with the Southern half performing
a Riverdance, while the Northerners march the Traditional route from their
dressing room to the pitch, via their opponents dressing room.
D.. Unfortunately the Committee were unable to accept the Welsh suggestion
following representations from the RSPCA.
E.. Argentina will unexpectedly invade a small part of opposition
territoryclaim it as their own "Las In-Goals-Areas" and then be forcibly
removed by the match stewards.
F.. Two members of the South African team will claim to be more important
than the other 13 whom they will imprison between the posts whilst they
claim the rest of the pitch for themselves.
G.. The Americans will not attend until almost full time. In future years
they will amend the records to show that they were in fact the most
important team in the tournament and Hollywood will make a film called
'Saving No. 8 Lyle'.
H.. Five of the Canadian team will sing La Marseillaise and hold the rest
of the team to ransom.
I.. The Italian team will arrive in Armani gear, sexually harass the female
stewards and then run away.
J.. The Spanish will sneak into the other half of the pitch, mow it and
then claim that it was all in line with European "grass quotas". They will
then curl up under the posts and have a kip until half time, when their
appeal for compensation against the UK Government will be heard.
K.. The Japanese will attempt to strengthen their team by offering good
salaries to the key opposition players and then run around the pitch at
high speed in a highly efficient manner before buying the ground (with a
subsidy from the UK Government).
L.. The French will declare they have new scientific evidence that the
opposition are in fact all mad. They will then park lorries across the
halfway line, let sheep loose in the opposition half (much to the delight
Wales!) and burn the officials.
M.. The Australians will have a barbie before negotiating lucrative singing
and TV contracts in the UK. They will then invite all their mates to come
and live with them in Shepherds Bush."
A student at an English university, by name of Donald MacDonald from the
Isle of Skye, was living in the hall of residence in his first year there.
After he had been there for a month, his mother came to visit, no doubt
carrying reinforcements of oatmeal.
"And how do you find the English students, Donald?" she asked."Mother,".
He replied, "They're such terrible noisy people! The one on that side keeps
banging his head against the wall, and won't stop. The one on the other
side screams and screams and screams away into the night!"
"Oh, Donald! How ever do you manage to put up with these awful noisy

It was the first time the blonde was eating Thanksgiving dinner without her
family. Trying to re-enact the tradition, she prepared a dinner for
The next day her mother called to see how everything went.
"Oh, mother, I made myself a lovely dinner, but I had so much trouble
trying to eat the turkey?" said the daughter.
"Did it not taste good?" her mother asked.
"I don't know," the blonde said. "It wouldn't sit still!"
A guy walks into a post office one day to see a middle-aged, balding man
standing at the counter methodically placing "Love" stamps on bright pink
envelopes with hearts all over them. He then takes out a perfume bottle
and starts spraying scent all over them. His curiosity getting the better
of him, he goes up to the balding man and asks him what he is doing.
The man says "I'm sending out 1,000 Valentine cards signed, 'Guess who?'"
"But why?" asks the man.
"I'm a divorce lawyer," the man replies.
A young woman was taking an afternoon nap. After she woke up, she told her
husband, "I just dreamed that you gave me a pearl necklace for Valentine's
day. What do you think it means?"
"You'll know tonight." he said.
That evening, the man came home with a small package and gave it to his
wife. Delighted, she opened it - only to find a book entitled "The meaning

Dear Tech Support:
Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a
distinct slow down in the overall performance, particularly in the Flower
and jewellery applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.
In addition, Husband 1.0 un-installed many other valuable programs, such as
Romance 9.5 and Personal Attention 6.5 and then installed undesirable
programs such as: Football 5.0, Rugby 4.3 and Cricket 3.0.
Conversation 8.0 no longer runs; it simply crashes the system. I've tried
running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, to no avail. What can I do?
_ _ _
First keep in mind, Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while
1.0 is an Operating System.
Try entering the command: C:/I-THOUGHT-YOU-LOVED-ME and execute Tears 6.2,
which should automatically install Guilt
3.0. If that application works as designed, Husband 1.0 should then
automatically run the applications Jewellery 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.
But remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to
default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour
7.0, or Beer 6.1.
WARNING: Beer 6.1 is a very nasty program that will create Snoring Loudly.
CAUTION: Whatever you do, DO NOT install Mother-in-law. This is not a
supported application and will crash Husband
In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory
and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying
additional software to improve memory and performance. I personally would
recommend Hot Food 3.0 and Lingerie 7.7.
Good Luck, Tech Support

Dear Technical Support,
18 months ago, I upgraded to Girlfriend 1.0 from DrinkingMates 4.2, which I
had used for years without any trouble. However, there are apparently
conflicts between these two products and the only solution was to try and
run Girlfriend 1.0 with the sound turned off.
To make matters worse, Girlfriend 1.0 is incompatible with several other
applications, such as LadsNightOut 3.1, Football 4.5, and Playboy 6.9.
Successive versions of GirlFriend proved no better.
I tried a shareware program, Slapper 2.1, but it had many bugs and left a
virus in my system, forcing me to shut down completely for several weeks.
Eventually, I tried to run GirlFriend 1.2 and Girlfriend 1.0 at the same
time, only to discover that when these two systems detected each other
they caused severe damage to my hardware.
I eventually upgraded to Fiancée 1.0, only to discover that this product
soon had to be upgraded further to Wife 1.0. While Wife 1.0 tends to use
up all my available resources, it does come bundled with FreeSexPlus and
Shortly after this upgrade, however, I found that Wife 1.0 could be very
unstable and costly to run. Any mistakes I made were automatically stored
Wife 1.0's memory and could not be deleted.
They then resurfaced months later when I had forgotten about them.
Wife 1.0 also has an automatic Diary, Explorer and E-mail filter, and can,
without warning, launch TurboStrop and Multi-Whinge. These latter products
have no Help files, and I have to try to guess what the problem is.
Additional problems are that Wife 1.0 needs updating regularly, requiring
ShoeShop and HandBag Browser for new attachments and Hairstyle Express
which needs to be reinstalled every other week. Also, when Wife 1.0
attaches itself to my Audi TT Convertible hard drive, it often crashes.
Wife 1.0 also comes with an irritating pop-up called MotherInLaw, which
can't be turned off.
Recently I've been tempted to install Mistress 2005, but there could be
problems. A friend of mine has alerted me to the fact that if Wife1.0
detects Mistress 2005, it tends to delete all of your Money before
An 85-year-old man was requested by his doctor for a sperm count as part of
his physical exam. The doctor gave the man a jar and said, "Take this jar
home and bring back a semen sample tomorrow." The next day the
85-year-old man reappeared at the doctor's office and gave him the jar,
which was as clean and empty as on the previous day.
The doctor asked what happened and the man xplained: "Well, doc, it's like
this - first I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried with my
left hand, but still nothing. Then I asked my wife for help. She tried with
her right hand, then with her left, still nothing. She tried with her
first with the teeth in, then with her teeth out, still nothing. We even
called up Arleen, the lady next door and she tried too, first with both
hands, then an armpit, and she even tried squeezin' it between her knees,
but still nothing".
The doctor was shocked! "You asked your neighbor?"
The old man replied, "Yep. None of us could get the jar open.

Having a bad day...?
1. The average cost of rehabilitating a seal after the Exxon Valdez oil
spill in Alaska was $80,000. At a special ceremony, two of the most
expensively saved animals were released back into the wild amid cheers and
applause from onlookers. A minute later, in full view, they were both eaten
by a killer whale.
2. A psychology student in New York rented out her spare room to a
carpenter in order to nag him constantly and study his reactions. After
weeks of needling, he snapped and beat her repeatedly with an axe leaving
her mentally retarded.
3. In 1992, Frank Perkins of Los Angeles made an attempt on the world
flagpole-sitting record. Suffering from the flu he came down eight hours
short of the 400-day record, his sponsor had gone bust, his girlfriend had
left him and his phone and electricity had been cut off.
4. A woman came home to find her husband in the kitchen, shaking
frantically with what looked like a wire running from his waist towards
the electric kettle. Intending to jolt him away from the deadly current,
she whacked him with a handy plank of wood by the back door, breaking his
arm in two places.
Until that moment, he had been happily listening to his Walkman.
5. Two animal rights protesters were protesting the cruelty of sending pigs
to a slaughterhouse in Bonn, Germany. Suddenly the pigs, all two thousand
of them, escaped through a broken fence and stampeded, trampling the two
hapless protesters to death.
6. Iraqi terrorist, Khay Rahnajet, didn't pay enough postage on a letter
bomb. It came back with "return to sender" stamped on it. Forgetting it
was the bomb, he opened it and was blown to bits.

Hold it Harold
Harold is 95 and lives in a senior citizen home. Every night after dinner,
he goes to a secluded garden behind the centre to sit and ponder his
accomplishments and long life. One evening, Mildred, age 87, wanders into
the garden. They begin to chat, and before they know it, several hours
After a short lull in their conversation, Harold turns to Mildred and asks,
"Do you know what I miss most of all?"
"What?" She asks.
"SEX!!" he replies.
Mildred exclaims, "Why you old fart, you couldn't get it up if I held a gun
to your head!"
"I know," Harold says, "but it would be nice if a woman could just hold it
for a while."
" Well, I can oblige," says Mildred, who unzips his trousers, removes his
manhood and proceeds to hold it.
Afterward, they agree to meet secretly each night in the garden where they
would sit and talk and Mildred would hold Harold's manhood.
Then, one night, Harold didn't show up at their usual meeting place and
alarmed, Mildred decided to find Harold and make sure he was OK. She
walked around the senior citizen home where she found him sitting by the
pool with another female resident, Ethel, who was holding Harold's

It's a fact ...
If you yelled for 8 years, 7 months and 6 days you would have produced
enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee.
(Hardly seems worth it.)
If you passed wind consistently for 6 years and 9 months, enough gas is
produced to create the energy of an atomic bomb.
(Now that's more like it!)
The human heart creates enough pressure when it pumps out to the body to
squirt blood 30 feet. (O. M. G.!)
A pig's orgasm lasts 30 minutes.
(In my next life, I want to be a pig.)
A cockroach will live nine days without its head before it starves to

Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour.
(Do not try this at home...... maybe at work.)
The male praying mantis cannot copulate while its head is attached to its
body. The female initiates sex by ripping the male's head off! ("Honey,
I'm home. What the....?!")
The flea can jump 350 times its body length. It's like a human jumping the
length of a football field.
(30 minutes... lucky pig... can you imagine??)
The catfish has over 27,000 taste buds.

Some lions mate over 50 times a day.

In the Outback
A drover was overseeing his herd in a remote Aussie outback pasture, when
suddenly a brand-new Toyota Prado 4x4 advanced out of a dust cloud toward
him. The driver, a man named Frank Pagano, in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes,
Ray Ban sunglasses and EMQ tie, leaned out the window and asked the drover,
"If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will
you give me a calf?"
The young drover looked at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looked at his
peacefully grazing herd and calmly answered, "Sure, why not?"
The visitor parked his 4x4, whipped out his Dell notebook computer,
connected it to his Cingular RAZR V3 cell phone, and surfed to a NASA page
on the Internet, where he called up a GPS satellite navigation system to
get an exact fix on his location, which he then fed to another NASA
satellite that scanned the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo. The man
then opened the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop and exported it to an
image-processing facility in Kedron Park, Brisbane.
Within seconds, he receivesd an e-mail on his Palm Pilot that the image had
been processed and the data stored.
He then accessed an MS-SQL database through an ODBC-connected Excel
spreadsheet with e-mail on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes,
received a response.
Then he printed out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech,
miniaturized HP LaserJet printer and finally turned to the cowboy and said,
"You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves."
"That's right," said the drover. "Well, I guess you can take one of my
He watched the man select one of the animals and looked on as the man
stuffed it into the back of his 4x4.
Then the drover said to the visitor, "Hey, if I can tell you exactly what
your business is, will you give my back my calf?"
The man thought about it for a few seconds and said, "Okay, why not?"
"Well," said the young drover, "You're a high ranking Queensland Government
"Wow! That's correct," said the yuppie, "but how did you guess that?"
"No guessing required." answered the drover. "You showed up here even
though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already
knew, to a question I never asked. You tried to show me how much smarter
than me you are; and you don't know a thing about cows... this is a herd

And from Brett Dude
It is important for men to remember that, as women grow older, it becomes
harder for them to maintain the same quality of housekeeping as when they
were younger. When you notice this, try not to yell at them. Some are
oversensitive, and there's nothing worse than an oversensitive woman.
My name is Bob. Let me relate how I handled the situation with my wife,
Debbie. When I took "early retirement" last year, it became necessary for
Debbie to get a full-time job along with her part time job, both for extra
income and for the health benefits that we needed. Shortly after she
started working, I noticed she was beginning to show her age.
I usually get home from the golf course about the same time she gets home
from work. Although she knows how hungry I am, she almost always says she
has to rest for half an hour or so before she starts dinner. I don't yell
at her. Instead, I tell her to take her time and just wake me when she
gets dinner on the table. I generally have lunch in the Men's Grill at the
club so eating out is not reasonable. I'm ready for some home cooked grub
when I hit that door.
She used to do the dishes as soon as we finished eating. But now it's not
unusual for them to sit on the table for several hours after dinner. I do
what I can by diplomatically reminding her several times each evening that
they won't clean themselves. I know she really appreciates this, as it does
seem to motivate her to get them done before she goes to bed.
Another symptom of aging is complaining, I think. For example she will say
that it is difficult for her to find time to pay the monthly bills during
her lunch hour. But, boys, we take 'em for better or worse, so I just
smile and offer encouragement. I tell her to stretch it out over two or
even three days. That way she won't have to rush so much.

you just use a little more tact and less criticism of your aging wife

Mujibar was trying to get a job in India
The Personnel Manager said, "Mujibar, you have passed all the tests, except
one. Unless you pass it you cannot qualify for this job."
Mujibar said, "I am ready"
The manager said, "Make a sentence using the words Yellow, Pink and Green."
Mujibar thought for a few minutes and said, "Mister manager, I am ready"
The manager said, "Go ahead."
Mujibar said, "The telephone goes green, green, and I pink it up, and say,
'Yellow, this is Mujibar.'"
Mujibar now works as a technician at a call center for computer problems.
No doubt you have spoken to him. I have.

New wiper blades
I got a new set of wiper blades on my car. I think they might be too long
because they hang over the edges a little, but I don't care, they work
great. I would have to say that they are the only blades I have ever had
that I actually like to watch. It's hard to keep my eyes on the road
sometimes. Call me crazy, but lately I have been driving around non-stop
with them on. I've even been pulled over and the cop asked to go for a
ride so he could watch them work.
They were outrageously expensive, but safety is my main concern and like I
said, they work great.

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
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 ass and
lets get the hell out of here!"
Seniors Guide to SEX
Put on your glasses. Double check that your partner is actually in bed with
you. Set timer for 10 minutes, in case you doze off in the middle. Set the
mood with lighting. Turn them ALL OFF! Make sure you put 911 on your speed
dial before you begin. Write partner's name on your hand in case you can't
remember. Keep extra Polygrip close by so your teeth don't end up under
the bed. Have Tylenol ready in case you actually complete the act. Make
all the noise you want. The neighbors are deaf too. If it works, call
everyone you know with the good news. Don't even think about trying it

A Polish man moved to the US and married an American girl. Although his

divorce would depend on the circumstances, and asked him the following

Two couples were playing Poker one evening. John accidentally dropped some
cards on the floor. When he bent down under the table to pick them up, he
noticed that Bill's wife's legs were wide apart, and she wasn't wearing
any underwear! Shocked by this, John upon trying to sit back up again, hit
his head on the table and emerged red-faced.
Later, John went to the kitchen to get some refreshments. Bill's wife Sue,
followed and asked, "Did you see anything that you liked under there?"
Surprised by her boldness, John admitted that, well, indeed he did. She
said, "Well, you can have it but it will cost you $500." After taking a
minute or two to assess the financial situation as well as the moral costs
of this offer, John says that he is indeed interested. She tells him that
since her husband, Bill, works Friday afternoons and John doesn't, that
John should be at her house around 2pm Friday afternoon.
When Friday rolled around, John showed up at Bill's house for the planned
time at 2pm sharp and after paying her the agreed upon $500, they went to
the bedroom and completed their sexual transaction as Sue had promised.
Afterwards, John quickly dressed and left. As usual, Bill came home from
work at 6pm and upon entering the house, asks his wife abruptly, "Did John
come by the house this afternoon?"
With a lump in her throat, Bill's wife answered, "Why yes, he did stop by
for a few minutes this afternoon". Her heart nearly skipped a beat when
her husband curtly asked, "And did he give you $500?"
In terror, she assumed that somehow he had found out, and after mustering
up her best poker face, replied, "Well, yes, in fact he did give me $500".
Bill, with a satisfied look on his face, surprised his wife by saying,
"Good, I was hoping he did. John came by the office this morning and
borrowed $500 from me. He promised me he'd stop by our house this
afternoon on his way home and pay me back."

The 94 year-old yells back, "I don't know. I'll come up and see." She
starts up the stairs and pauses. "Was I going up the stairs or down?"
The 92 year-old is sitting at the kitchen table having tea listening to her
sisters. She shakes her head and says, "I sure hope I never get that

She then yells, "I'll come up and help both of you as soon as I see who's

could have sworn we just went through a red light."
After a few more minutes they came to another intersection and the light
was red again. Again, they went right through it. The woman in the
passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red but was really
concerned that she was losing it. She was getting nervous.
At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was red and they went on
through. So, she turned to the other woman and said, "Mildred, do you know
that we just ran through three red lights in a row? You could have killed
Mildred turned to her and said, "Oh Crap, I thought you were driving!"

As some of you receiving this know, New Orleans residents are challenged
often with the task of tracing home titles back potentially hundreds of
years. With a community rich with history stretching back over two
centuries, houses have been passed along through several generations of
families, making it quite difficult to establish ownership.
Here's a great letter an attorney wrote to the FHA on behalf of a client
that I thought was absolutely priceless!!
A New Orleans lawyer sought an FHA loan for a client. He was told the loan
would be granted if he could prove satisfactory title to a parcel of
property being offered as collateral. The title to the property dated back
to 1803, which took the lawyer three months to track down. After sending
the information to the FHA, he received the following reply. (Actual
"Upon review of your letter adjoining your client's loan application, we
note that the request is supported by an Abstract of Title. While we
compliment the able manner in which you have prepared and presented the
application, we must point out that you have only cleared title to the
proposed collateral property back to 1803. Before final approval can be
accorded, it will be necessary to clear the title back to its origin."
Annoyed, the lawyer responded as follows (actual letter)
"Your letter regarding title in Case No. 189156 has been received. I note
that you wish to have title extended further than the 194 years covered by
the present application. I was unaware that any educated person in this
country, particularly those working in the property area, would not know
that Louisiana was purchased, by the U. S., from France in 1803, the year
of origin identified in our application.
"For the edification of uninformed FHA bureaucrats, the title to the land
prior to U. S. ownership was obtained from France, which had acquired it
Right of Conquest from Spain. The land came into the possession of Spain by
Right of Discovery made in the year 1492 by a sea captain named Christopher
Columbus, who had been granted the privilege of seeking a new route to
India by the Spanish monarch, Isabella.
"The good queen, Isabella, being a pious woman and almost as careful about
titles as the FHA, took the precaution of securing the blessing of the
Pope before she sold her jewels to finance Columbus' expedition. Now the
I'm sure you may know, is the emissary of Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and
God, it is commonly accepted, created this world. Therefore, I believe it
is safe to presume that God also made that part of the world called
"God, therefore, would be the owner of origin and His origins date back, to
before the beginning of time, the world as we know it AND the FHA.
"I hope you find God's original claim to be satisfactory. Now, may we have
our damn loan?"
Finally a couple from Allnutts
A nun went to her Mother Superior and confessed; "I used some horrible
language this week and feel absolutely terrible about it."
"When did you use this awful language?" asks the elder.
"Well, I was golfing and hit an incredible drive! It looked like it was
going to sail over 250 yards, but it struck a phone line that was hanging
over the fairway. The ball then fell straight down to the ground after
going only about 100 yards."
"Is that when you swore?" asked Mother Superior.
"No, Mother," says the nun. "After that, a squirrel ran out of the bushes
and grabbed my ball in its mouth, and began to run away."
"Is THAT when you swore?" asks the Mother Superior again.
"Well, no." says the nun. "You see, as the squirrel was running, an eagle
came down out of the sky, grabbed the squirrel in his talons and began to
"Is THAT when you swore?" asks the amazed elder nun.
"No, Mother. Oh no, not yet. As the eagle carried the squirrel away in its
claws, it flew near the green and the squirrel dropped my ball."
"Did you swear THEN?" asked Mother Superior.
"Oh no, Mother.. My ball fell on a big rock, bounced over the sand trap,
rolled onto the green, and stopped about SIX inches from the hole."
The two nuns were silent for a moment.
Then Mother Superior sighed and said, "You missed the fucking putt, didn't

whomever she pleased, in fact did whatever the hell she wanted, never
argued, didn't get fat, travelled more, had many boyfriends, saved lots of
money, and had all the hot water to herself. She went to the theatre, never
watched football, never wore fricken lacy lingerie that went up her ass,
had high self esteem, never cried or yelled, felt and looked fabulous in
and burped and swore when she damn well pleased.
