June - Summer
A list of jobs I just couldn't hold down!
My first job was working in an orange juice
factory, but I got canned couldn't concentrate.
Then I worked in the woods
as a lumberjack, but I just couldn't hack it, so they gave me the axe.
After that I tried to be a tailor, but I just wasn't suited for it. Mainly
because it was a so-so job.
Next I tried working in a muffler factory but
that was exhausting.
I wanted to be a barber, but I just couldn't cut it.
Then I tried to be a chef--figured it would add a little spice to my life
but I just didn't have the thyme.
Finally, I attempted to be a deli worker,
but any way I sliced it, I couldn't cut the mustard.
My best job was being
a musician, but eventually I found I wasn't noteworthy.
I studied a long
time to become a doctor, but I didn't have any patients.
Next was a job in
a shoe factory; I tried but I just didn't fit in.

The woman thought about this, but decided she had to have the bird
anyway. She took it home and hung the bird's cage up in her living room and

FBI'S Most Unusual Deaths
Every year the FBI,
is asked to investigate over 36,000 Serious Crimes including Suspicious Deaths
and Homicides. Every year the Homicide Investigations Unit puts out its Top 12
Homicides of the year.
1- Alex Mijtus, 36 years old, is killed by his
wife, armed with a 20 inch long vibrator. Mrs Mijtus had enough of her
husband's strange sex practices and one night during a prolonged session of fun
she snapped, pushing all 20 inches of the vibrator into Alex's anus until it
ruptured several internal organs and caused severe bleeding.
Mills-Newbroughton, 99 years old, was killed as she crossed the road. She was
to turn 100 the next day, but crossing the road with her daughter to go to her
own birthday party her wheel chair was hit by the truck delivering her birthday
3- Peter Stone, 42 years old, is murdered by his 8 year old
daughter, who he had just sent to her room with no dinner. Young Samantha Stone
felt that if she couldn't have dinner no one should, and she promptly inserted
72 rat poison tablets into her father's coffee as he prepared dinner. The
victim took one sip and promptly collapsed. Samantha Stone was given a
suspended sentence as the judge felt she didn't realize what she was doing,
until she tried to poison her mother using the same method one month later.
4- David Danil, 17 years old, was killed by his girlfriend after he
attempted to have his way with her. His unwelcome advance was met with a
double-barreled shotgun. Charla's (the girlfriends') father had given it to her
an hour before the date started, just in case.
5- Javier Halos, 27
years old, was killed by his landlord for failing to pay his rent for 8 years.
The landlord, Kirk Weston, clubbed the victim to death with a toilet seat after
he realized just how long it had been since Mr Halos paid his rent.
Megan Fry, 44 years old, was killed by 14 state troopers after she wandered
onto a live firing, fake town, simulation. Seeing all the troopers walking
slowly down the street Megan Fry had jumped out in front of them and yelled
Boo!. The troopers, thinking she was a pop up target, fired 67 shots between
them, over 40 of them hitting the target. She just looked like a very real
looking target, one of the troopers stated in his report.
Smeeth, 20 years old, was killed by her brother Michael because she talked on
the phone too long. Michael clubbed his sister to death with a cordless phone,
then stabbed her several times with the broken aerial.
8- Helena Simms,
Wife to the famous American nuclear scientist Harold Simms was killed by her
husband after she had an affair with the neighbour. Over a period of 3 months
Harold substituted Helena's eye shadow with a Uranium composite that was highly
radioactive, until she died of radiation poisoning. Although she suffered many
symptoms, including total hair loss, welts, blindness, extreme nausea and even
had an ear lobe drop off, the victim never attended a doctor's surgery or
hospital for a checkup.
9- Military Sergeant John Joe Winter killed his
two timing wife by loading her car with Trintynitrate explosive (similar to
C4). The Ford Taurus she was driving was filled with 750 kgs of explosive,
forming a force twice as powerful as the Oklahoma Bombing. The explosion was
heard by several persons some up to 14 kilometres away. No traces of the car or
the victim were ever found, only a 55 metre deep crater, and 500m of missing
10- Patty Winter, 35 years old, was killed by her neighbour in
the early hours of a Sunday morning. Her neighbour, Falt Hame, for years had a
mounted F6 phantom jet engine in his rear yard. He would fire the jet engine,
aimed at an empty block at the back of his property. Patty Winter would
constantly complain to the local sheriff's officers about the noise and the
potential risk of fire. Mr Hame was served with a notice to remove the engine
immediately. Not liking this he invited Miss Winter over for a cup of coffee
and a chat about the whole situation. What Winter didn't know was that he had
changed the position of the engine, as she walked into the yard he activated
it, hitting her with a blast of 5,000 degrees, killing her instantly, and
forever burning her outline into the driveway.
11- Michael Lewis, angry
at his gay boyfriend, used the movie, Die Hard With a Vengeance as inspiration.
He drugged his boyfriend, Tony Berry, into an almost catatonic state, then
dressed him only in a double sidedwhite board that read Death to all Niggers!
on one side, and God Loves the KKK on the other. Lewis then drove the victim to
downtown Harlem and dropped him off. Two minutes later Berry was deceased.
12- Conrad Middleton, 26 years old, was killed by his twin brother
Brian after a disagreement over who should take the family home after their
parents' passed away. Conrad had a nasal problem, and had no sense of smell.
After the argument Brian stormed out of the house, then snuck back later, and
turned on the 3 gas taps in the house, filling it with gas. He then left out a
box of cigars, a lighter and a note saying, Sorry for the spree, have a puff on
me, Brian. Conrad promptly lit a cigar, destroying the house, and himself in

One day, fresh out of the shower, she is yet again

Uncharacteristically, the husband comes up with a suggestion. "If you want your
breasts to grow, then every day take a piece of toilet paper, and rub it
between your breasts for a few seconds."
Willing to try anything, the wife
fetches a piece of toilet paper, and stands in front of the mirror, rubbing it
between her breasts.
"How long will this take?" she asks.

Why men pee standing up!
Seems God was just about done with creating the
universe but he had two extra things left over in his bag so he decided to
split them between Adam and Eve.
He told them that one of the things he had
left was a thing that would allow the owner to pee while standing up. "It's a
very handy thing," God told them, "and I was wondering if either one of you
would like that."
Well, Adam jumped up and down and begged "Oh, give that
to me! I'd love to be able to do that. It seems just the sort of thing a man
should be able to do. Please. Please! Pleeease! Give it to me." On and on he
went like an excited little boy. Eve just smiled and told God that if Adam
really wanted it so badly, he should have it.
So God gave Adam the thing
that allowed him to pee while standing up and he was so excited! He whizzed on
the bark of a tree and then went off to write his name in the sand, laughing
with delight all the while.
God and Eve watched him for a moment and then
God said to Eve, "Well, here's the other thing and I guess you can have it."
"What's it called?" Eve asked.
"Brains" God said.
