WORST JOKE OF THE WEEK
Did you hear the joke about the football game with
the 0-0 score?
Never mind -- it was pointless.
WHY MEN ARE NOT SECRETARIES
Husband's note on refrigerator to his wife:
Someone from the Guyna College called.
They said Pabst beer is normal.
Two old men on a park bench
Two old men were sitting on a park bench outside
the local town hall where a flower show was in progress.
One leaned over
the other and said, "Cripes, life is boring, we never have any fun these days.
For $2.00, I'd take my clothes off and streak through the flower show!"
"You're on!" said the other old fellow, holding up two dollars.
As fast as
he could, the first old man fumbled his way out of his clothes and completely
naked, streaked through the front door of the town hall. Waiting outside, his
friend heard a huge commotion inside the hall, followed by loud applause. The
naked old man burst out through the door surrounded by a cheering crowd.
"How did it go?" asked his friend.
"Great!" he said, "I WON FIRST PRIZE AS
A DRIED ARRANGEMENT!!!"

Roy's Health Q & A
Q: I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can
prolong life. Is this true?
A: Your heart is only good for so many beats,
and that's it. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up your heart will not
make you live longer; that's like saying you can extend the life of your car by
driving it faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.
Q: Should I cut
down on meat and eat more fruit and vegetables?
A: You must grasp
logistical efficiencies. What does a cow eat? Hay and corn. And what are these?
Vegetables. So a steak is nothing more than an efficient mechanism of
delivering vegetables into your system. Need grain? Eat chicken. Beef is also a
good source of field grass ( green leafy vegetable). And a pork chop can give
you 100% of your recommended daily allowance of vegetable slop.
beer or wine bad for me?
A: Look, it goes to the earlier point about fruits
and vegetables. As we all know, scientists divide everything in the world into
three categories: animal, vegetable, and mineral. We all know beer and wine are
not animal, and they are not on the periodic table of elements, so that only
leaves one thing, right? My advice: Have a burger and beer and enjoy your
Q: How can I calculate my body/fat ratio?
Well, if you have one body, and you have fat, your ratio is one to one. If you
have two bodies, your ratio is two to one, etc.
Q: At the gym, someone
asked me to 'spot' for him while he did the bench press. What did he mean?
A: 'Spotting' for someone means you stand over him while he blows air up your
shorts. It's an accepted practice at health clubs; though if you find that it
becomes the ONLY reason why you're going in, you probably ought to reevaluate
your exercise program.
Q: What are some of the advantages of
participating in a regular exercise program?
A: Can't think of a single
one, sorry. My philosophy is: No Pain - Good.
Q: If I stop smoking,
will I live longer?
A: Nope. Smoking is a sign of individual expression and
peace of mind. If you stop, you'll probably stress yourself to death in record
Q: Aren't fried foods bad for you?
A: You aren't listening.
Foods are fried these days in vegetable oil. In fact, they're permeated in it.
How could getting more vegetables be bad for you?
Q: What's the secret
to healthy eating?
A: Thicker gravy.
Q: Will sit-ups help prevent
me from getting a little soft around the middle?
A: Definitely not! When
you exercise a muscle, it gets bigger. You should only be doing sit-ups if you
want a bigger stomach.
President Bush Has Lowest IQ of all Presidents
I am not promoting any party affiliations nor
passing judgement... just found this to be interesting so thought I would share
it with you.
Report: President Bush Has Lowest IQ of all Presidents of past
50 Years If late night TV comedy is an indicator, then there has never been as
widespread a perception that a president is not intellectually qualified for
the position he holds as there is with President GW Bush. In a report published
Monday, the Lovenstein Institute of Scranton, Pennsylvania detailed its
findings of a four month study of the intelligence quotient of President George
W. Bush. Since 1973, the Lovenstein Institute has published its research to the
education community on each new president, which includes the famous "IQ"
report among others. According to statements in the report, there have been
twelve presidents over the past 50 years, from F. D. Roosevelt to G. W. Bush
who were all rated based on scholarly achievements, writings that they alone
produced without aid of staff, their ability to speak with clarity, and several
other psychological factors which were then scored in the Swanson/Crain system
of intelligence ranking. The study determined the following IQs of each
president as accurate to within five percentage points:
147 Franklin D.
132 Harry Truman (D)
122 Dwight D. Eisenhower (R)
John F. Kennedy (D)
126 Lyndon B. Johnson (D)
155 Richard M. Nixon (R)
121 Gerald Ford (R)
175 James E. Carter (D)
105 Ronald Reagan (R)
098 George HW Bush (R)
182 William J. Clinton (D)
091 George W.
The six Republican presidents of the past 50 years had an average
IQ of 115.5, with President Nixon having the highest IQ, at 155. President G.
W. Bush was rated the lowest of all the Republicans with an IQ of 91. The six
Democrat presidents had IQs with an average of 156, with President Clinton
having the highest IQ, at 182. President Lyndon B. Johnson was rated the lowest
of all the Democrats with an IQ of 126. No president other than Carter (D) has
released his actual IQ, 176. Among comments made concerning the specific
testing of President GW Bush, his low ratings were due to his apparent
difficulty to command the English language in public statements, his limited
use of vocabulary (6,500 words for Bush versus an average of 11,000 words for
other presidents), his lack of scholarly achievements other than a basic MBA,
and an absence of any body of work which could be studied on an intellectual
basis. The complete report documents the methods and procedures used to arrive
at these ratings, including depth of sentence structure and voice stress
confidence analysis. "All the Presidents prior to George W. Bush had a least
one book under their belt, and most had written several white papers during
their education or early careers. Not so with President Bush," Dr. Lovenstein
said. "He has no published works or writings, so in many ways that made it more
difficult to arrive at an assessment. We had to rely more heavily on
transcripts of his unscripted public speaking." The Lovenstein Institute of
Scranton Pennsylvania think tank includes high caliber historians,
psychiatrists, sociologists, scientists in human behavior, and psychologists.
Among their ranks are Dr. Werner R. Lovenstein, world-renowned sociologist, and
Professor Patricia F. Dilliams, a world-respected psychiatrist. This study was
commissioned on February 13, 2001 and released on July 9, 2001 to subscribing
member universities and organizations within the education community.
Redneck Birth Control
After having their 11th child, a Mississippi
couple decided that was enough (they could not afford a larger double wide).
So, the husband went to his doctor (who also treated mules) and told him that
he and his wife/cousin didn't want to have any more children. The doctor told
him that there was a procedure called a vasectomy that could fix the problem.
The doctor instructed him to go home, get a cherry bomb (fireworks are legal in
Mississippi), light it, put it in a beer can, then hold the can up to his ear
and count to 10.
The Mississippian said to the doctor, "I may not be the
smartest man, but I don't see how putting a cherry bomb in a beer can next to
my ear is going to help me."
So, the couple drove to Alabama to get a
second opinion. The Alabama physician was just about to tell them about the
procedure for a vasectomy when he noticed that they were from Mississippi. This
doctor instead told the man to go home and get a cherry bomb, light it, place
it in a beer can, hold it to his ear and count to 10.
Figuring that both
learned physicians couldn't be wrong, the man went home, lit a cherry bomb and
put it in a beer can. He held the can up to his ear and began to count, "1, 2,
3, 4, 5 . . . . ", at which point he paused, placed the beer can between his
legs and resumed counting on his other hand...

Chicken soup for beer drinkers souls
"Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I
drink I feel ashamed. Then I look into the glass and think about the workers in
the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer,
they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to
myself, it is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than
be selfish and worry about my liver."

Cause of arthritis
A drunk man who smelled like beer sat down on a
subway seat next to a priest. The man's tie was stained, his face was plastered
with red lipstick, and a half empty bottle of gin was sticking out of his torn
coat pocket. He opened his newspaper and began reading. After a few minutes the
man turned to the priest and asked, "Say, Father, what causes arthritis?"
"My Son, it's caused by loose living, being with cheap, wicked women, too
much alcohol and a contempt for your fellow man."
"Well, I'll be damned,"
the drunk muttered, returning to his paper.
The priest, thinking about what
he had said, nudged the man and apologized. "I'm very sorry. I didn't mean to
come on so strong. How long have you had arthritis?"
"I don't have it,
Father. I was just reading here that the Pope does".
Memories of Bill
After much arguing and deliberation, historians
this week have come up with a phrase to describe the Clinton Era. It will be
called: SEX BETWEEN THE BUSHES.
The Center for Disease Control in Atlanta
announced that Clinton has proven that you CAN get sex from Aides.
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 "Presidue."
now recruits interns from only four colleges: Moorhead,Oral Roberts, Ball State
and Bringham Young.
Did you know that Clinton had asked to change the
Democratic seal from a donkey to a condom. It represents inflation, halts
production, and gives you a false sense of security while you are being
Washington has come up with a solution for the Clinton situation-
they added an 11th commandment: "Thou shall not put thy rod in thy staff."
Arkansas is very proud of Bill Clinton. All these women coming forward, and not
one is his sister!
Finally, Hillary Clinton recently went to a fortune
teller who intoned, "Prepare to become widow. Your husband will soon suffer a
violent death!" Hillary took a deep breath and asked, "Will I be acquitted?"
An older man goes to his doctor and says. "Doc, I
have a problem. My girlfriend is sleeping over this Friday, my ex-wife is
sleeping over this Saturday and my wife is coming home Sunday. I need 3 Viagra
pills to satisfy them all."
The doctor looks at the man stearnly and says,
"You know 3 Viagra pills 3 nights in a row is pretty dangerous for a man of
your age." Then the doctor adds, "I'll give them to you on the condition that
you return to my office on Monday so that I can check you out."
says, "You have a deal Doc."
Monday morning the man returns with his arm
wrapped in ice and in a sling. The doctor says, "My God! What Happened"? The
man answered, "nobody showed up!"
A Mathematical Proof:
Knowledge is Power.
Time is Money And, as
every actuary (with physics training) knows:
Power = Work/Time
Knowledge = Power
Time = Money
then through simple
Knowledge = Work/Money
Solving for Money, we get
Thus, if Work is held constant as a positive number (no
matter how small!!),
Money approaches infinity as Knowledge approaches zero
Conclusion: All else being equal, the less you know, the more you
