1. Never under any circumstances take a sleeping
pill and a laxative on the same night.

word, the reason why the human race has not achieved, and never will achieve,
its full potential, that word would be "meetings."

line between "hobby" and "mental illness."
4. People who want to share
their religious views with you almost never want you to share yours with them.

decides to deliver a message to humanity, He WILL NOT use, as His messenger, a
person on cable TV with a bad hairstyle.
6. You should not confuse your
career with your life.
7. No matter what happens, somebody will find a way
to take it too seriously.
8. When trouble arises and things look bad, there
is always one individual who perceives a solution and is willing to take
command. Very often, that individual is crazy.
9. Nobody cares if you can't
dance well. Just get up and dance.

in the universe is gossip.
13. You will never find anybody who can give you
a clear and compelling reason why we observe daylight savings time.
There comes a time when you should stop expecting other people to make a big
deal about your birthday. That time is age eleven.

unites all human beings, regardless of age, gender, religion, economic status
or ethnic background, is that, deep down inside, we all believe that we are
above average drivers.

The Governor of Arkansas would like to announce
that he has made a disturbing discovery in the state. Apparently, a small
number of terrorists became romantically involved with the locals. The result
was not pretty, and we now have the sad task of reporting a new sector of the
ISLAMABUBBAS So far, only a smattering of actual births has

Mohammed Who's-Ya-Daddi and Yo Mama Bin Lovin.
Four men were bragging about how smart their cats
are. The first man was an Engineer, the second man was an accountant, the third
man was a chemist, the fourth was a Government Worker.
To show off, the
Engineer called to his cat, "T-square, do your stuff." T-square pranced over to
a desk, took out some paper and a pen and promptly drew a circle, a square, and
a triangle. Everyone agreed that was pretty smart.
But the Accountant said
his cat could do better. He called his cat and said, "Spreadsheet, do your
stuff." Spreadsheet went out into the kitchen and returned with a dozen
cookies. He divided them into four equal piles of three cookies each.
Everyone agreed that was good. But the Chemist said his cat could do
better. He called his cat and said, "Measure, do your stuff." Measure got up,
walked over to the fridge, took out a quart of milk, got a 10 ounce glass from
the cupboard and poured exactly 8 ounces without spilling a drop.
agreed that was good. Then the three men turned to the Government Worker and
said, "What can your cat do?"
The Government Worker called to his cat and
said, "Coffee Break, do your stuff." Coffee Break jumped to his feet, ate the
cookies, drank the milk, peed on the paper, sexually assaulted the other three
cats, claimed he injured his back while doing so, filed a grievance report for
unsafe working conditions, put in for Workers Compensation and went home for
the rest of the day on sick leave!

AN AMERICAN REPUBLICAN: You have two cows. Your
neighbor has none. So what?
AN AMERICAN DEMOCRAT: You have two cows. Your
neighbor has none. You feel guilty for being successful. You vote people into
office who tax your cows, forcing you to sell one to raise money to pay the
tax. The people you voted for then take the tax money and buy a cow and give it
to your neighbor. You feel righteous.
A SOCIALIST: You have two cows. The
government takes one and gives it to your neighbor.
A COMMUNIST: You have
two cows. The government seizes both and provides you with milk.
You have two cows. The government seizes both and sells you the milk. You join
the underground and start a campaign of sabotage.
STYLE: You have two cows. The government taxes you to the point you have to
sell both to support a man in a foreign country who has only one cow, which was
a gift from your government.
BUREAUCRACY, AMERICAN STYLE: You have two
cows. The government takes them both, shoots one, milks the other, pays you for
the milk, then pours the milk down the drain.
AN AMERICAN CORPORATION: You
have two cows. You sell one, and force the other to produce the milk of four
cows. You are surprised when the cow drops dead.
A FRENCH CORPORATION: You
have two cows. You go on strike because you want three cows.
CORPORATION: You have two cows. You redesign them so they are one-tenth the
size of an ordinary cow and produce twenty times the milk. You then create
clever cow cartoon images called Cowkimon and market them World-Wide.
BRITISH CORPORATION: You have two cows. They are mad. They die.
CORPORATION: You have two cows, but you don't know where they are. You break
for lunch and have a drink.

A CHINESE CORPORATION: You have two cows. You have 300
people milking them. You claim full employment, high bovine productivity, and

two cows. That one on the left is kinda cute.....
A husband was advised by his assertiveness
training group to go home and begin asserting himself with his wife.
don't ever have to let your wife henpeck you. Go home and show her you're the
boss" they said.
The man was on fire with enthusiasm and couldn't wait to
try the Doctor's advice ... He rushed home, slammed the door, shook his fist in
his wife's face, and growled, "From now on, you're taking orders from me. I
want my supper right now, and when you get it on the table, go upstairs, and
lay out my best clothes. Tonight, I'm going out with the boys and you're going
to stay home where you belong!"
"And another thing...you know who's going
to comb my hair, adjust my pants, and then tie my tie?"
"I certainly do,"
said his wife calmly....
This is the word women use at the end
of any argument when they feel they are right but can't stand to hear you argue
any longer. It means that you should shut up. (NEVER use "fine" to describe how
she looks. This will cause you to have one of those arguments.)
This is half an hour. It is equivalent to the five minutes that
your football game is going to last before you take out the trash, so women
feel that it's an even trade.
"Nothing" means something
and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is usually used to describe the
feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside out, upside down, and
backwards. "Nothing" usually signifies an argument that will last "Five
Minutes" and end with the word "Fine."
4. "Go Ahead" (with raised
This is NOT permission; it's a dare! If you mistake it for
permission, the result will be the woman will get upset over "Nothing" and
you'll have a "five-minute" discussion that will end with the word "Fine."
5. "Go Ahead" (normal eyebrows)
This is NOT permission, either. It means "I
give up" or "do what you want because I don't care." You will get a raised
eyebrow "Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by "Nothing" and "Fine" and
she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes" when she cools off.
This is not actually a word, but is still often a verbal statement .
Very frequently misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are a
complete idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and
arguing with you over "Nothing!."
7. "Soft Sigh"
Again, not a word,
but a verbal statement. "Soft Sighs" are one of the few things that some men
actually understand. It means she is momentarily content. Your best bet is to
not move or breathe in the hope that the moment will last a bit longer.
This word-followed by any statement-is trouble. Example; "Oh, let me
get that". Or, "Oh, I talked to him about what you were doing last night." If
she says "Oh" before a statement, run, do not walk, to the nearest exit. She
will tell you that she is "Fine" when she is done tossing your clothes out the
window, but do not expect her to talk to you for at least two days. ("Oh" as
the lead to a sentence usually signifies that you are caught in a lie. Do not
try to lie more to get out of it, or you will get a raised eyebrow. "Go ahead,"
sometimes followed by acts so unspeakable that I can't bring myself to write
9. "That's Okay"
This is one of the most dangerous
statements that a woman can say to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to
think long and hard before deciding what the penalty will be for whatever you
have done. "That's Okay" is often used with the word "Fine" and in conjunction
with a raised eyebrow "Go Ahead." Once she has had time to plan it out, you are
in for some mighty big trouble.
10. "Please Do"
This is not a
statement, it is an offer. The woman is giving you the chance to come up with
an excuse for what you have done. In other words, a chance to get yourself into
even more trouble. If you handle this correctly, you shouldn't get a "That's
The woman is thanking you. Don't faint and don't
look for hidden meaning. Just say "you're welcome."
12. "Thanks A Lot"
"Thanks A Lot" is dramatically different from "Thanks." A woman will say
"Thanks A Lot" when she is really ticked off at you. It is usually followed by
the "Loud Sigh." This signifies that you have hurt her in some callous way. Be
careful not to ask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh," as she will only tell
