Bill and Sam, two elderly friends, met in the park every day to feed the
pigeons and watch the girls and discuss world problems. One day Bill
didn't show up. Sam didn't think much about it and figured maybe he had a
cold or something. But after Bill hadn't shown up for a week or so, Sam
really got worried. However, since the only time they ever got together
was at the park, Sam didn't know where Bill lived, so he was unable to
find out what had happened to him.

A month had passed, and Sam figured he had seen the last of Bill, but one
day, Sam approached the park and -- lo and behold--there sat Bill! Sam was
very excited and happy to see him and told him so. Then he said, 'For
crying out loud Bill, what in the world happened to you?'

Bill replied, 'I have been in jail.'

'Jail?' cried Sam. 'What in the world for?'

'Well,' Bill said, 'you know Mary, that cute little blonde waitress at the
coffee shop where I sometimes go?'

'Yeah,' said Sam, 'I remember her. What about her?'

'Well, one day she filed rape charges against me; and, at 89 years old, I
was so proud that when I got into court, I pled 'guilty.'

'The damn judge gave me 30 days for perjury.'

Subject: The Lemon picker

A man applying for a job at a Mildura lemon grove seemed to be far too
qualified for the job.

The foreman frowned and said, "I have to ask you this; have you had any
actual experience in picking lemons?"

The man replied: "Yes, I have. I've been divorced three times,
I bought a Pajero once and I voted for Kevin Rudd."

Subject:  Dillie the deer

Dillie the deer acts just like a house-trained dog as she walks up the
stairs and lounges around on her owner's bed.
Living with vet Melanie Butera, in Canal Fulton , Ohio , four-year-old
Dillie is so spoiled she is served linguine in bed.
She has even managed to work out where a deer that lives in a house should
go to do her business.

House trained: Dillie the deer polishes off a plate of linguine in her
owners' master bedroom

Taking full advantage of Melanie and her husband Steve's generous
hospitality, Dillie even gets to enjoy their swimming pool and five acres
of property on which to run around on.
Living with the Buteras since she was three days old, Dillie now knows how
to turn lights on and off and how to take ice from the dispenser in the
'We took a call from a local farmer at 3 am one wintry night,' said
48. 'Dillie's mother was not taking to her and he asked if we wanted to try
to nurse her back to health.
'We put her on an IV drip because she weighed four pounds and got her back
up and running after around two weeks.
'We then realised that she couldn't go back to the farm and live with the
other deer and she couldn't live with our horses because they scared her
too much.'

Deer's best friend: Dillie plays around with Lady, the dog of the house

Leaving her in the capable hands of her eight-year-old poodle Lady, Melanie
decided that Dillie was going to become the Butera household's latest pet.
'She developed cataracts and this meant that she had to be cared for in a
sensitive manner,' explained Melanie.
'She would hang around Lady and she very quickly learned to act like a dog.
'This became apparent to us when we came home one day and couldn't find her
'We walked upstairs and found her standing on our bed with Lady. She had
obviously learned a few tricks from the old dog.'

Family: Dr Melanie Butera and her husband Steve Heathman share their bed in
their home in Canal Fulton, Ohio, with Dillie and Lady

Dillie slept for the first few years at the Buteras' home in their bed with
'I suppose it was quite a cute get together, said Melanie. 'Me, my husband,
Dillie and Lady all sharing the same bed.
'My husband Steve always liked the way that Dillie would warm his feet up
when she lied on them.'
Fully house-trained, Dillie now wears a GPS collar due to a frightening
runaway incident last year.
'She went missing because a gate was left open on our property when she was
out roaming,' said Melanie.
'So we got this collar fitted to her to keep our minds at ease.'
Enjoying a wide variety of meals, Dillie's favourite is ice cream and
coffee, topped with frozen ice shavings.

Stairway to heaven: Dillie has the run of the house, and has even learned
how to use the toilet

From: Stumpy Steve

(This was actually reported by a teacher)

After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils how they spent their
holiday away from school.

One child wrote the following:

We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa.

They used to live in a big brick house but Grandpa got retarded and they
moved to Arizona: now they live in a tin box and have rocks painted green
to look like grass. They ride around on their bicycles and wear name tags
because they don't know who they are anymore.

They go to a building called a wreck center, but they must have got it
fixed because it is all okay now, they do exercises there, but they don't
do them very well.

There is a swimming pool too, but they all jump up and down in it with hats

At their gate, there is a doll house with a little old man sitting in it.
He watches all day so nobody can escape.

Sometimes they sneak out, and go cruising in their golf carts.

Nobody there cooks, they just eat out.

And, they eat the same thing every night --- early birds.

Some of the people can't get out past the man in the doll house.

The ones who do get out, bring food back to the wrecked center for pot

My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his retardment and
says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday too.

When I earn my retardment, I want to be the man in the doll house.
Then I will let people out, so they can visit their grandchildren.

Two female co-workers are having a conversation at work.

Woman 1: Did you have good s*x last night?

Woman 2: No, it was a disaster... my husband came home, ate his dinner in 3
minutes, got on top of me, finished having s*x in 4 minutes, rolled over
and fell asleep in 2 minutes. How about you?

Woman 1: Oh it was amazing! My husband came home. He took me out to a
romantic dinner. After dinner we took a walk for an hour. When we came
home he lit the candles around the house and we had an hour of foreplay.
After foreplay we had an hour long session of fantastic s*x and then we
talked for an hour. It was like in a fairytale!

At the same time, their husbands are talking at work.

Husband 1: Did you have good s*x last night?

Husband 2: Yes, it was great! I came home, dinner was on the table, I ate,
screwed my wife and fell asleep.  What about you?

Husband 1: It was horrible. I came home, there's no dinner because they cut
the electricity because I didn't pay the bill. In return I had to take my
wife out to dinner and the dinner was so expensive that we didn't have
money for a cab. So we had to walk home for an hour - and when we got
home, there was no electricity, so I had to light f*cking candles all over
the house! I was so angry that I couldn't get it up for an hour and then I
couldn't c*m for another hour. After I finally did, I was so mad and
aggravated that I couldn't fall asleep and my wife was jabbering away for
another hour!

When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our
car, we were told the keys had been locked in it.  We went to the service

department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock

one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large'

a 1/2 horsepower.  He shook his head and said, 'Lady,

you need a  1/4 horsepower.' I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4.

Kopp-Etchells Effect

When helicopters pass through dust storms,
contact of the particles with the rotating blades produces either sparks or
static electricity.

The phenomenon has been observed during combat operations in Afghanistan;
Michael Yon has doc*mented the effect,
and has named it after two
U K Soldiers who died there.

When operating in sandy environments,
sand hitting the moving rotor blades erodes their surface.
This can damage the rotors;
the erosion also presents serious and costly maintenance problems.

The abrasion strips on helicopter rotor blades are made of titanium,
which is very hard, but less hard than sand;
so when a helicopter is flown near to the ground in desert environments
abrasion occurs,
and at night there is a visible corona or halo around the rotor blades,
caused by the sand hitting the titanium and causing it to spark and

(You'll never look at the game the same way again!)
Starting in 1941, an increasing number of British Airmen found themselves
as the involuntary guests of the Third Reich, and the Crown was casting
about for ways and means to facilitate their escape...
Now obviously, one of the most helpful aids to that end is a useful and
accurate map, one showing not only where stuff was, but also showing the
locations of 'safe houses' where a POW on-the-lam could go for food and
Paper maps had some real drawbacks -- they make a lot of noise when you
open and fold them, they wear out rapidly, and if they get wet, they turn
into mush.
Someone in MI-5 (similar to America 's OSS ) got the idea of printing
escape maps on silk. It's durable, can be scrunched-up into tiny wads, and
unfolded as many times as needed, and makes no noise whatsoever.
At that time, there was only one manufacturer in Great Britain that had
perfected the technology of printing on silk, and that was John
Ltd. When approached by the government, the firm was only too happy to do
its bit for the war effort.
By pure coincidence, Waddington was also the U..K. Licensee for the popular
American board game, Monopoly. As it happened, 'games and pastimes' was a
category of item qualified for insertion into 'CARE packages', dispatched
by the International Red Cross to prisoners of war.
Under the strictest of secrecy, in a securely guarded and inaccessible old
workshop on the grounds of Waddington's, a group of sworn-to-secrecy
employees began mass-producing escape maps, keyed to each region of
Germany or Italy where Allied POW camps were regional system). When
processed, these maps could be folded into such tiny dots that they would
actually fit inside a Monopoly playing piece.
As long as they were at it, the clever workmen at Waddington's also managed
to add:
1. A playing token, containing a small magnetic compass
2. A two-part metal file that could easily be screwed together
3. Useful amounts of genuine high-denomination German, Italian, and French
currency, hidden within the piles of Monopoly money!
British and American air crews were advised, before taking off on their
first mission, how to identify a 'rigged' Monopoly set -- by means of a
tiny red dot, one cleverly rigged to look like an ordinary printing
located in the corner of the Free Parking square.
Of the estimated 35,000 Allied POWS who successfully escaped, an estimated
one-third were aided in their flight by the rigged Monopoly sets..
Everyone who did so was sworn to secrecy indefinitely, since the British
Government might want to use this highly successful ruse in still another,
future war.
The story wasn't declassified until 2007, when the surviving craftsmen from
Waddington's, as well as the firm itself, were finally honored in a public

It's always nice when you can play that 'Get Out of Jail' Free' card!
I realize most of you are (probably) too young to have any personal
connection to WWII (Dec. '41 to Aug. '45), but this is still interesting.

A cop was on his horse
 waiting to cross the street,

A little girl on her shiny new bike stopped beside him.

'Nice bike,' the cop said.
'Did Santa bring it to you?'

'Yes Sir,' the little girl said, 'he sure did!'

The cop looked the bike over and handed the girl a $5 ticket for a safety

The cop said, 'Give this to your Dad,
and next year,
tell Santa to put a reflector light on the back'

The young girl looked up at the cop and said,
'Nice horse you've got there Sir. 
Did Santa bring it to you?'

Playing along with the girl, the cop chuckled and answered,
'Yes, he sure did!'

The little girl looked up at the cop and said,

'Next year tell Santa;
The d*ck goes underneath the horse,
not on top'!!!

An EVA Air Boeing 747-45EM taking off from runway 36L at
Amsterdam-Schiphol (AMS / EHAM), Netherlands...

Someone probably had to change their underwear after this one!
The timing and angle of this shot (particularly the size of the 747),
makes 'the event' look even more spectacular!

At liftoff, the distance to the fence was just 145 meters (475ft)...!
(This was horizontal distance, not vertical!)

I must seriously wonder if any member of the EVA c*ckpit crew bothered to
compute the 'required runway length' prior to them initiating the takeoff

Subject:  The Absolute & Ultimate  Little Johnnie Joke

Little Johnnie's neighbor had a baby.
Unfortunately, the baby was born without ears.

When mother and new baby came home from the hospital, Johnnie's family was
invited over to see the baby.

Before they left their house, Little Johnnie's dad had a talk with him and
explained that the baby had no ears.

His dad also told him that if he so much mentioned anything about the
baby's missing ears or even said the word ears, he would get the smacking
of his life when they came back home.
Little Johnnie told his dad he understood completely.

When Johnnie looked in the crib he said, "What a beautiful baby."
The mother said, "Why, thank you, Little Johnnie.

Johnnie said, "He has beautiful little feet and beautiful little hands, a
cute little nose and really beautiful eyes. Can he see?"

"Yes", the mother replied, "we are so thankful; the Doctor said he will
have 20/20 vision."

"That's great", said Little Johnnie, "coz he'd be f*cked if he needed

AAAANNND Finaly from:
We could all learn so much from this elegant and gracious lady.
You might recall that John Hinckley was a seriously deranged young man who
shot President Reagan in the early 1980's. Hinckley was absolutely
obsessed with movie star Jodie Foster and, in his twisted mind,
loved Jodie to the point that to make himself well known to her,
he attempted to assassinate President Reagan.
There is speculation Hinckley may soon be released having been
Consequently, you will appreciate the following letter from Nancy Reagan to
John Hinckley.

To: John  Hinckley
From: Mrs. Nancy Reagan

My family and I wanted  to drop you a short note to tell you how pleased we
are with the great strides you are making in your recovery.
In our country's spirit of understanding and forgiveness, we want you to
know that we bear no grudge against you for shooting President Reagan.
We are fully aware that mental stress and pain could have driven you to
such an act of desperation. We're confident that you will soon make a
complete recovery and return to your family to join the world again as a
healthy and productive man.

Best wishes,
Nancy Reagan & Family

P.S. While you have been incarcerated, Kevin Rudd has been banging Jodie
Foster like a screen door in a tornado. You might want to look into that.
