Subject: Did you ever wonder why earrings became so popular with men?

*A man is at work one day when he notices that his co-worker is wearing an
earring. The man knows his co-worker to be a normally conservative fellow,
and is curious about his sudden change in "fashion sense"The man walks up
to him and says, "I didn't know you were into earrings.""Don't make such a
big deal, it's only an earring," he replies sheepishly. His friend falls
silent for a few minutes, but then his curiosity prods him to ask, "So, how
long have you been wearing one?""Ever since my wife found it in my
truck."(I always wondered how this trend got started.)*

un-register from the Neighborhood Watch Programme.

As of yesterday, I've got two Pakistani flags raised in the front yard, one
at each corner, and the black flag of ISIShanging from my garage door.

Subject: I'll believe in The Prophet Muhammad

|   From now on, I'll believe in The Prophet Muhammad …   I decided to go
to the local Mosque for the first time, to see what it was all about.   I
sat down and the Imam came up to me, laid his hands on my hand and said:  
"By the will of Allah the All Mighty, and the Prophet Muhammad, you will
walk today."   I told him I was not paralysed… I can walk.   He came back
and laid his hands on me and repeated "By the will of Allah the All Mighty,
and the Prophet Muhammad, you will walk today."   Once again, I told him
there is nothing wrong with me.   After the prayers, I stepped outside and
f*ck me... my car was gone!    |

Subject:  Facts of life......
Thought 1

When we are married, our brides get the presents and the publicity.
When we die, our widows get the life insurance.
What do women want to be liberated from?

Thought 2

The average man's life consists of:
Twenty years of having his mother ask him where he is going,
Forty years of having his wife ask the same question;
and at the end, the mourners wondering too where he is going.

Thought 3

Everyone in the wedding ceremony was watching the radiant bride as her
father escorted her down the aisle to give away to the groom. They reached
the altar and the waiting groom;  the bride kissed her father and placed
something in his hand. Everyone in the room was wondering what was given to
the father by the bride.

The father could feel the suspense in the air and all eyes were on him to
divulge the secret and say something. So he announced :

'Ladies and Gentlemen.  Today is the luckiest day of my life ...'Then he
raised his hands with what his daughter gave him and continued,  'My
daughter finally, finally returned my Credit Card to me.'

The whole audience including the priest started laughing . . . .  But not
the poor Groom ! ! !

And  now  the  Best  one. . . . .

Thought 4

A Man was walking down a street when he heard a voice from behind, 'If you
take one more step, a brick will fall down on your head and kill you.'

The man stopped and a big brick fell right in front of him. The man was
astonished. He went on, and after a while he was going to cross the road.
Once again the voice shouted,  'Stop ! Stand still !  If you take one more
step a car will run over you, and you will die.'

The man did as he was instructed,  just as a car came careening around the
corner, barely missing him. The man asked. 'Who are you?'

'I am your guardian angel,' the voice answered.

'Oh, yeah?'  the man said 'And where the hell were you when I got married?

Subject:   Albert Einstein Stories.
Charlie Chaplin with Albert Einstein.
Einstein said, "What I admire most about your art, is its
Universality. You do not say a word, and yet ... The world understands
" It's true," replied Charlie Chaplin, "But your fame is even greater:
The world admires you, when nobody understands you."

  (1) One day during a speaking tour, Albert Einstein's driver,
  Who often sat at the back of the hall during his lectures, remarked
  That he could probably give the lecture himself, having heard it so
  Many times. Sure enough, at the next stop on the tour, Einstein and
The driver switched places, with Einstein sitting at the back in his
Driver's' uniform. Having delivered a flawless lecture, the driver was
  Asked a difficult question by a member of the audience. "Well, the
  Answer to that question is quite simple," he casually replied. "I bet
  My driver, sitting up at the back there, could answer it!"

(2)  Albert Einstein's wife often suggested that he dress more
Professionally when he headed off to work. "Why should I?" he would
Invariably argue. "Everyone knows me there." When the time came for
Einstein to attend his first major conference, she begged him to dress
Up a bit. "Why should I?" said Einstein. "No one knows me there!"

(3) Albert Einstein was often asked to explain the general theory
  Of relativity. "Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it
  Seems like an hour," he once declared. "Sit with a pretty girl for an
  Hour, and it seems like a minute. That's relativity!"

(4) When Albert Einstein was working in Princeton university, one
  Day he was going back home he forgot his home address. The driver of
  The cab did not recognize him. Einstein asked the driver if he knows
  Einstein's home. The driver said "Who does not know Einstein's
  Address? Everyone in Princeton knows.Do you want to meet him?.
  Einstein replied "I am Einstein. I forgot my home address, can you
  Take me there? "The driver reached him to his home and did not even
  Collect his fare from him.

(5) Einstein was once traveling from Princeton on a train when
  The conductor came down the aisle, punching the tickets of every
Passenger. When he came to Einstein, Einstein reached in his vest
Pocket. He couldn't find his ticket, so he reached in his trouser
  Pockets. It wasn't there, so he looked in his briefcase but couldn't
  Find it. Then he looked in the seat beside him. He still couldn't find

The conductor said, 'Dr. Einstein, I know who you are. We all know who
You are. I'm sure you bought a ticket. Don't worry about it.' Einstein
Nodded appreciatively. The conductor continued down the aisle punching
Tickets. As he was ready to move to the next car, he turned around and
Saw the great physicist down on his hands and knees looking under his
Seat for his ticket.
The conductor rushed back and said, 'Dr. Einstein, Dr. Einstein, don't
Worry, I know who you are. No problem. You don't need a ticket. I'm
Sure you bought one.' Einstein looked at him and said, 'Young man, I
Too, know who I am. What I don't know is where I'm going.'
