Five pearls of wisdom.

1. Money cannot buy happiness but somehow, its more comfortable to cry in a
Mercedes†Benz than it is on a bicycle.
2. Forgive your enemy, but remember the bastard's name.
3. Help a man when he is in trouble & he will remember you when he is in
trouble again.
4. Many people are alive only because itís illegal to shoot them.
5. Alcohol does not solve any problem, but then neither does milk.


Three Irishmen are sitting in the pub window seat, watching the front door
of the brothel over the road.
The local Methodist vicar appears, and quickly goes inside.
"Will you look at that?" says the first Irishman.
"And didn't I always say what a bunch of lying hypocrites they are?"
No sooner are the words out of his mouth than a Rabbi also goes inside.
"There's another bunch who try to fool everyone with their pious preaching
and funny little hats," says the second Irishman.
They continue drinking their beer roundly condemning the vicar and the
rabbi when they see their Catholic Priest knock on the door and go inside.
"Oh, how sad!" says the third Irishman.
"One of the girls must have died!"


The Wasteful Older Generation

In the line at the store, the cashier told the older woman that she should
bring her own grocery bag because plastic bags weren't good for the
environment. The woman apologized to him and explained, "We didn't have the
green thing back in my day." The clerk responded, "That's our problem
today. The former generation did not care enough to save our environment."

He was right, that generation didn't have the green thing in its day.

Back then, they returned their milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles
to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and
sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So
they really were recycled.

But they didn't have the green thing back in that customer's day.

In her day, they walked up stairs, because they didn't have an escalator in
every store and office building. They walked to the grocery store and
didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time they had to go two

But she was right. They didn't have the green thing in her day.

Back then, they washed the baby's diapers because they didn't have the
throw-away kind. They dried clothes on a line, not in an energy gobbling
machine burning up 220 volts - wind and solar power really did dry the
clothes. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not
always brand-new clothing.

But that old lady is right; they didn't have the green thing back in her

Back then, they had one TV, or radio, in the house - not a TV in every
room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief, not a
screen the size of the state of Montana. In the kitchen, they blended and
stirred by hand because they didn't have electric machines to do everything
for you. When they packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, they used a
wadded up old newspaper to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble

Back then, they didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the
lawn. They used a push mower that ran on human power.
They exercised by working so they didn't need to go to a health club to run
on treadmills that operate on electricity.

But she's right; they didn't have the green thing back then.

They drank from a fountain when they were thirsty instead of using a cup or
a plastic bottle every time they had a drink of water.
They refilled their writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and
they replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the
whole razor just because the blade got dull. But they didn't have the green
thing back then.
Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to
school or rode the school bus instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour
taxi service. They had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank
of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And they didn't need a computerized
gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 2,000 miles out in space
in order to find the nearest pizza joint.

But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful the old folks
were just because they didn't have the green thing back then?


A Golf Story ...

A golfer hits his ball into a yard next to the golf course.

As he goes to get it a man in the yard says, "don't you see the sign".

"It says private property ... stay out".

The golfer says "I'm sorry ... I didn't see. That's my ball over... there
may I have it?"

The man says, "it's in my yard, so it's my ball now".

The golfer looks at the man and says, "I understand".

He then walks back to the golf cart gets a golf ball and walks back and
throws it in the yard.

The man says, "what's that for?"

The golfer says, "I'm a gentleman. Every pr*ck should have two balls."


You've seen a lot of footage on the recent Japanese tsunami, but this one
will get your attention since it was filmed by an amateur who was perched
just above the roaring wave.

Paddy and Murphy are shooting pheasants in the Irish countryside when a
black man flies over in a hang glider.
They immediately open fire trying to blow holes in it.
What the f*ck was that? says Paddy. F*ck knows says Murphy, but whatever it
was it wasn't letting go of that nigger!

I found my dyslexic mate covering his penis with black boot polish in the
early hours of Sunday morning.

I said, "You idiot - you're supposed to turn your clock back!"


Got a phone call from a mate last night.

He had just got back from a day out in London and told me that whilst there
he'd acquired a brand new top of the range camera absolutely free.

I asked, ''Where did you get that?''

He said, ''I met a very nice family from Japan whilst I was in Trafalgar
Square and was just passing the time of day with them.

After a few minutes I was about to go when the male member of the family
asked me if I would mind taking a photograph of them and handed me his

They lined up as a group against one of the lions and were all smiling at
the camera.

Just as I was about to click the button I shouted to them, 'WAVE!' and they
all rushed past me and I never saw them again!!''

I was in my back yard trying to launch a kite.

I threw the kite up in the air, the wind would catch it for a few seconds,
then it would come crashing back down to earth. I tried this a few more
times with no success.

All the while, my wife Karen is watching from the kitchen window, muttering
to herself how men need to be told how to do everything.

She opens the window and yelled to me, 'You need a piece of tail.'

I turned with a confused look on my face and said, 'Make up your mind. Last
night, you told me to go fly a kite.'
