life -The George Carlin Theory

"The most unfair thing about life is the way it ends. I mean, life is tough.
It takes up a lot of your time. What do you get at the end of it? A Death.
What's that, a bonus? I think the life cycle is all backwards. You should
die first; get it out of the way. Then you live in an old age home. You get
kicked out when you're too young, you get a gold watch and you go to work.
You work forty years until you're young enough to enjoy your retirement. You
do drugs, alcohol, you party, and you get ready for high school. You go to
grade school, you become a kid, you play, and you have no responsibilities.
You become a little baby, you go back into the womb; spend your last nine
months floating . . .and you finish off as an orgasm.

Astounding facts

In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the
animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is
punishable by death. (Like THAT makes sense.)

In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman's genitals,  but  he
is prohibited from looking directly at them during the examination. He may
only see their reflection in a mirror.

Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a corpse. This also
applies to undertakers;  the sex organs of the deceased must be covered
with a brick or piece of wood at all times. ( A brick??)

The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation. (Wonder which

There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the countryside and
deflower young virgins, who pay them for the privilege of having sex for the
first time...
Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to marry.
(Let's just think for a minute; is there any job anywhere else in the world
that even comes close to this?)

In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous
husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. The husband's lover, on
the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired. (Ah! Justice!)

Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool, England - but only in tropical
fish stores. (But of course!)
In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her husband, and the
first time this happens, her mother must be in the room to witness the act.
(Makes one shudder at the thought.)

In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman
and her daughter at the same time. (I presume this was a big enough problem
that they had to pass this law?)

Have a look here, to understand why happiness may be a short nap in a  picnic during a honeymoon vacation with the money that you (or your partner) have inherited ; dreaming about the work that you'd love to do !!

Shit happens.

If shit happens,
it isn't really shit.
What is the sound
of shit happening?
This shit
happened before.
If shit happens,
it is the will of Allah.
Let shit happen

If shit happens,
you deserve it.
Why does this shit

A professor of mathematics sent a fax to his wife:
Dear Wife:  You must realize that you are 54-years-old, and I have
needs which you are no longer able to satisfy.
I am otherwise happy with you
as a wife, and I sincerely hope you will not be hurt or offended to  learn
 that by the time you receive this letter, I will be at the Grand Hotel  with
my 18-year-old teaching assistant. I'll be home before midnight.

-Your Husband

When he arrived at the hotel, there was a faxed letter waiting for  
 him that read as follows:
Dear Husband:  You, too, are 54-years-old and by the time you receive  this
letter, I will be at the Breakwater Hotel with the 18-year-old pool  boy.
Being the brilliant mathematician that you are, you can easily  
appreciate the fact that 18 goes into 54 a lot more times than 54 goes into 18.
Don't wait up.

A man walked into the ladies department of a Macy's
and shyly walked up to the woman behind the counter
and said, "I'd like to buy a bra for my wife."
"What type of bra?" asked the clerk.
"Type?" inquires the man,
"There are more than one type?"
"Look around," said the sales lady, as she showed a
sea of bras in every shape, color and material
imaginable. "Actually," she continued, "even with all
of this variety, there are really only four types of
bras to choose from.
"Relieved", the man asked about the types.
The saleslady replied, "There are the Catholic,The
Salvation Army, the Presbyterian, and the Baptist
types. Which one would you prefer?"
Now befuddled, the man asked about the differences
between them.
The saleslady responded, "It is all really quite
The Catholic type supports the masses.
The Salvation Army Type lifts the fallen.
The Presbyterian type keeps them staunch and upright,
and The Baptist type makes mountains out of mole

An elderly couple had been dating for some time and
decided it was finally time to marry. Before the
wedding they embarked On a long conversation regarding
how their marriage might work. They discussed
finances, living arrangements and so on.
 Finally the old man decided it was time to broach the
subject of their connubial relationship:
"How do you feel about sex?" he asked, rather
"Oh, I like to have it infrequently," she responded.

 The old guy thought for a moment, then asked,

 "Was that one word or two?"

Subject: UN

A world survey recently conducted by the UN posed the following question:

"Could you please give us your opinion about the food shortage in the rest
of the world?"

This was a huge failure due to the following reasons:

In Africa, no one knows what "food" is.

In Western Europe, no one knows what "shortage" is.

In Eastern Europe no one knows what "opinion" is.

In South America no one knows what "please" means.

In the US no one knows what "rest of the world" means.

The Sunday school teacher was speaking to her class
one Sunday morning and she asked the question, "When
you die and go to Heaven ...which part of your body
goes first?"
>Suzy raised her hand and said, "I think it's your
>"Why do you think it's your hands, Suzie?"
>Suzy replied, "...Because when you pray, you hold
your hands together in  front of you and God just
takes your hands first!"
>"What a wonderful answer!" the teacher said.

>Now, Tommy raised his hand and said, "Teacher, I
think it's your legs."
>The teacher looked at him with the strangest look on
her face. "Now, Tommy, why do you think it would be
your legs ?"
>Tommy said, "Well, I walked into Mommy and Daddy's
bedroom the other night, Mommy had her legs straight
up in the air and she was going, 'O.God, I'm coming!"
If Dad hadn't had her pinned down, we'd have lost her
for sure!!"

This could never happen, or could it !!!!

There once was an Account Executive who lived his whole life
without ever taking advantage of any of the people he dealt
with. In fact, he made sure that every deal he made was a
win-win situation.

One day while walking down the street he was tragically hit by
a bus and he died. His soul arrived up in heaven where he was
met at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter himself.

"Welcome to Heaven," said St. Peter. "Before you get settled
in though it seems we have a problem. You see, strangely
enough, we've never once had anyone in Sales make it this far
and we're not really sure what to do with you."

"No problem, just let me in." said the Account Guy. "Well, I'd
like to, but I have higher orders. What we're going to do is
let you have a day in Hell and a day in Heaven and then you
can choose whichever one you want to spend an eternity."

"Actually, I think I've made up my mind...I'd prefer to stay
in Heaven."

"Sorry, but rules are rules..."

And with that St. Peter put the Account Guy in an elevator and
it went straight down to hell.

The doors opened and the account guy found himself stepping
out onto the putting green of a beautiful golf course. In the
distance was a country club and standing in front of him were
all his old friends fellow Sales Reps that he had worked with
over the years.

They were all dressed in tuxedos, beautiful women on their
arms, and they were all cheering for him.

They ran up and slapped him on his back and they talked about
old times. They played an excellent round of golf and at night
went to the country club where he enjoyed an excellent steak
and lobster dinner.

The Devil came over and offered him a Cuban cigar.

Then he and all his pals loaded into a limo and went to the
most amazing Strip Bar he had ever been to. The Account Guy
was having such a good time that before he knew it, it was
time to leave. Everybody shook his hand and waved good bye as
he got on the elevator.

The elevator went up-up-up and opened back up at the Pearly
Gates and St. Peter waiting for him. "Now it's time to spend a
day in heaven."

So the Account Guy spent the next 24 hours lounging around on
clouds and playing the harp and singing. He had a great time
and before he knew it his 24 hours were up and St. Peter came
and got him.

"So, you've spent a day in hell and you've spent a day in
heaven. Now you must choose your eternity."

The Account Guy paused for a second and then replied, "Well, I
never thought I'd say this, I mean, Heaven has been really
great and all, but I think I had a better time in Hell."

So St. Peter escorted him to the elevator and again the
Account Guy went down- down-down back to Hell. When the doors
of the elevator opened he found himself standing in a desolate
wasteland covered in garbage and filth. He saw his friends
were dressed in rags and were picking up the garbage and
putting it in sacks.

The Devil came up to him and put his arm around him.

"I don't understand," stammered the Account Guy, "Yesterday I
was here and there was a golf course and a country club and we
ate lobster and we danced and had a great time. Now all there
is a wasteland of garbage and all my friends look miserable."

The Devil looked at him and smiled. "That's because yesterday
you were a prospect."

"But today you're a client."

He said... Want a quickie?
She said... As opposed to what?

He said... I don't know why you wear a bra; you've got nothing to put in it.
She said... You wear briefs, don't you?

He said... 'If you only could learn to make me a proper meal, then we could manage without the cook. And if you cleaned the house, we could fire the maid as well.'
She said...'Darling, if you only could learn to satisfy me properly we could do without the gardener too'

He said... Why do you women always try to impress us with your looks, not with your brains?
She said... Because there is a bigger chance that a man is a moron than he is blind.

He said... Why don't you tell me when you have an orgasm?
She said... I would, but you're never there.

He said... "Shall we try a different position tonight?"
She said..."That's a good idea.... you stand by the ironing board while I sit on the sofa and fart. "

1. Don't imagine you can change a man - unless he's in diapers.
2. What do you do if your boyfriend walks out? You shut the door.
3. If we put a man on the moon - we should be able to put them all up there.
4. Never let your man's mind wander - it's too little to be out alone.
5. Go for younger men. You might as well - they never mature anyway.
6. Men are all the same - they just have different faces so that you can tell them apart.
7. Definition of a bachelor: a man who has missed the opportunity to make some woman miserable.
8. Women don't make fools of men - most of them are the do-it-yourself types.
9. Best way to get a man to do something: suggest he's too old for it.
10. Love is blind, but marriage is a real eye-opener.
11. If you want a committed man, look in a mental hospital.
12. The children of Israel wandered in the desert for 40 years. Even in biblical times, men wouldn't ask for directions.
13. If he asks what sort of books you're interested in, tell him checkbooks.
14. Remember: a sense of humor does not mean you tell him jokes; it means you laugh at his.
15. Sadly, all men are created equal.

Just a thought for all the women out there...

Ever notice how all of women's problems start with men?
And when we have real trouble, it's HISterectomy

Send this to all of the women you know and brighten their day!!!

Men Are Like....

(February 23, 2001)

... Bananas. The older they get, the less firm they are.

... Bank Accounts. Without a lot of money, they donít generate much interest. AND Once they withdraw they lose interest.

... Blenders. You need one, but youíre not quite sure why.

... Cement. After getting laid, they take a long, long time to get hard.

... Chocolate Bars. Sweet, smooth, and they usually head right for your hips.

... Coffee. The best ones are rich, warm, and can keep you up all night long.

... Commercials. You canít believe a word they say.

... Computers. Hard to figure out and never have enough memory.

... Coolers. Load them with beer and you can take them anywhere.

... Copiers. You need them for reproduction, but thatís about it.

... Curling Irons. Theyíre always hot, and theyíre always in your hair.

... Department Stores. Their clothes should always be half off.

... Government Bonds. They take way too long to mature.

... Horoscopes. They always tell you what to do and are usually wrong.

... Lava Lamps. Fun to look at, but not all that bright.

...Lawn Mowers. If youíre not pushing one around, then youíre riding it.

... Laxatives. They irritate the crap out of you.

... Mascara. They usually run at the first sign of emotion.

... Parking Spots. The good ones are already taken and the ones that are left are either handicapped or extremely small.

... Popcorn. They satisfy you, but only for a little while.

... Snowstorms. You never know when heís coming, how many inches youíll get or how long he will last.

... Vacations. They never seem to be long enough.

... Weather. Nothing can be done to change either one of them.

 Four Catholic moms are having coffee together, discussing how important their  children are...

The first one tells her friends, "My son is a Priest.  When he walks into a  room, everyone calls him 'Father.'"

The second Catholic mother chirps in, "Well, my son is a Bishop.  Whenever he walks into a room, people say, 'Your Grace.'"

The third Catholic mom says, smugly, "Well, not to put you down, but my son is a Cardinal.  Whenever he walks into a room, people say,  'Your Eminence.'"

The fourth Catholic mother sips her coffee in silence.  The other  three women give her a not-so-subtle, "Well..." !!??

She finally replies, "My son is a gorgeous,  6'6", blond,   hard-bodied, blue-eyed, male stripper. Whenever he walks into a room, everyone says, "Oh,  my God!'"

These two guys meet after not having seen each other
for many, many years.
First guy asks the second guy, "How have things been
going?"  The second guy
speaking very slowly tells the first guy,
"I  w..a..s   a..l..m..o..s..t   m..a..r..r..i..e..d."

The first guy says in amazement, "Hey, you don't
stutter any more."

The answer comes,
"Y..e..s,   I   w..e..n..t   t..o   a

The first friend congratulates him and than asks again
about how he was
almost married.

"W..e..l..l,   m..y   f..i..a..n..c..e..e  a..n..d  I

A Flea and a Fly in a flue;
Were imprisoned, so what could they do.
Said the Flea, "let us fly",
Said the Fly, "let us flee",
So they flew through a flaw in the flue!

An application was for employment
A program was a TV show  cursor used profanity
A keyboard was a piano!
Memory was something that you lost with age
A CD was a bank account!
And if you had a broken disk, It would hurt when you found out!
Compress was something you did to garbage
Not something you did to a file
And if you unzipped anything in public.
You'd be in jail for a while!
Log on was adding wood to a fire
Hard drive was a long trip on the road
A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
And a backup happened to your commode!
Cut- you did with a pocket knife
Paste- you did with glue
A web was a spider's home
And a virus was the flu!
I guess I'll stick to my pad and paper
And the memory in my head
I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash
But when it happens they wish they were dead !

Public Statement by the Rev. Jesse Jackson

Due to the great consternation caused by the revelation of my act of
procreation, I accept my obligation to give an explanation to the
population for my act of copulation.
I gave in to temptation, for the anticipation of sexual gratification,
that I could not obtain through masturbation, resulted in my fornication.

I accepted her invitation, and provided her with excitation, stimulation,

penetration, replication, and liberation. She provided lubrication
(to avoid inflammation) and I wore condoms to avoid contamination.
She cried for duplication but I insisted upon termination, in spite her
fascination with variation.
This has caused me great aggravation, and the agitation and provocation
of the media has resulted in my humiliation, denigration, and degradation.

My wife is considering castration, which would require my hospitalization.

Pray that this matter will find culmination in my sanctification and
rehabilitation so that my plans for nomination to my ultimate vocation
will not result in revocation and termination. I hope this proclamation
has provided illumination and verification and will prohibit further


The Rev. Jesse Jackson

A man walked into a bar one night. He went up to the bar and asked for a beer.
"Certainly, sir, that'll be 1 cent."
"ONE CENT!" exclaimed the guy,
the barman replied, "Yes."
So the guy glanced over at the menu, and he asked, "Could I have a nice
juicy T-bone steak, with chips, peas, and a fried egg?"
"Certainly sir," replied the bartender, but all that comes to real money."
"How much money?" inquired the guy.
"4 cents," he replies. "FOUR cents!!!!" exclaimed the guy.
"Where's the Guy who owns this place?"
The barman replied, "Upstairs with my wife."
The guy said, "What's he doing with your wife?"
The bartender replied, "Same as what I'm doing to his business."

 At an interfaith retreat some time ago, the organizers decided
to allow for a free afternoon of just socializing.  A priest,
minister, and a rabbi went fishing together.

After awhile, the priest said, "Brother, Rabbi, would you please
both excuse me, I've got to pee."  He laid down his fishing pole,
stepped over the side of the boat, and walked across the water
to the shore.  He finished his business, then walked back across
the water to the boat.

The minister said, "Father, I didn't want to be the first to have
to go," so he stood up, stepped over the side of the boat, and
walked right on top of the water to the shore.  He also finished
his business, zipped up, and walked back on the water right back
to the boat.

The rabbi was awestruck.  Imagine -- WALKING on water!

He thought to himself, "well, if they can do this, so can I!"

He excused himself to the priest and minister, put his pole down,
stepped over the side of the boat . . . and sunk like a rock.

The priest turned to the minister and said, "You think we should
have told him where the rocks were?"

How many nationalities can you offend in one joke?

On a beautiful deserted island in the middle of nowhere, the following people are stranded: 

One month later, the following things have occurred:

One day at kindergarten, the teacher says to the class of 
five-year-olds, "I'll give $2 to the child who can tell me
who was the most famous man who ever lived."

An Irish boy put his hand up and said, "Please miss, it was
St. Patrick." The teacher said, "Sorry Sean, that's not
correct." Then a Scottish boy put his hand up and said,
"Please miss, it was St. Andrew." The teacher replied, "I'm
sorry Hamish, that's not right either."

Finally, a Jewish boy raised his hand and said, "Please
miss, it was Jesus Christ.  The teacher said, "That's
absolutely right Moshie, come up here and I'll give you
your $2."

As the teacher was giving Moshie his money, she said "You
know Moshie, you being Jewish, I was very surprised you
said Jesus Christ."  Moshie replied, I know Miss, in my
heart I knew it was Moses, but business is business!"

A young man called his mother and announced excitedly that
he had just met the woman of his dreams. Now what should
he do?

His mother had an idea: "Why don't you send her flowers,
and on the card invite her to your apartment for a home-
cooked meal?"

He thought this was a great strategy, and arranged a date
for a week later. His mother called the day after the big
date to see how things had gone.

"The evening was a disaster," he moaned.

"Why, didn't she come over?" asked his mother.

"Oh, she came over, but she refused to cook...."

In the smoking-car the conversation turned to the merits and
demerits of various ways of preserving health.  One stout,
florid man held forth with great eloquence on the subject.

"Look at me!" he said.  "Never a day's sickness in my life,
and all due to simple food.  Why, gentlemen," he continued,
"from the age of twenty to that of forty I lived an
absolutely simple regular life----no effeminate delicacies,
no late hours, no extravagances.  Every day, in fact, Summer
and Winter, I was in bed regularly at nine o'clock and up
again at five in the morning.  I worked from eight to one,
then had dinner--a plain dinner, mark my words:  after that,
an hour's exercise; then.."

"Excuse me, sir," interrupted a stranger in the corner, "but
what were you in prison for?"

An exasperated mother, whose son was always
getting into mischief, finally asked him, "How do
you expect to get into Heaven?"

The boy thought it over and said, "Well, I'll just run
in and out and in and out and keep slamming the door
until St. Peter says, 'For Heaven's sake, Jimmy, either
come inside or stay outside!'

only a candidate or the next US president !?

The rich businessman from the North of Italy was on vacation in the 
South and noticed a fisherman lying lazily beside his boat,
smoking a pipe.

"Pardon me, but it's still pretty early in the day, I was
wondering why you aren't out fishing?" said the man.

"Because I have caught enough fish for the day," said
the fisherman.

"Why don't you catch some more?" asked the rich man.

"What would I do with them?" asked the fisherman.

"You could earn more money," was the businessman's reply.
"With that you could have a motor fixed to your boat and go
into deeper waters and catch more fish. Then you would make
enough to buy nylon nets. These would bring you more fish
and more money. Soon you would have enough money to own two
boats...maybe even a fleet of boats. Then you would be a
rich man like me."

"What would I do then?" asked the fisherman.

"Then you could *really* enjoy life," replied the rich man.

The fisherman smiled and said, "Um ! Interesting, interesting !!"

A young woman married and had 13 children. Her husband died. She soon
married again and had 7 more children. Again, her husband died .But, she
remarried and this time had 5 more children.
Alas, she finally croaked. Standing before her
coffin, the preacher prayed to the Lord above, thanking him for this
loving woman who fulfilled his commandment to "Go forth and multiply."

In his final eulogy, he noted, "Thank You Lord, they're finally together."

Leaning over to his neighbor, one mourner asked...
"Do you think he means her first, second or third husband?"

The other mourner then replied... "I think he means her legs."

There was a fire one night at a convent and several retired 
nuns who lived on the fourth floor were trapped by the fire.
They were praying  for the Lord to show them a way out of the
fire when one of the sisters  screamed, "We need to take off
our robes, tie them together and climb down to safety."

Later as they were recounting the event to reporters, they
were asked if they were afraid of the crude rope breaking.
"Oh, no," they said. "You see, old habits are hard to break."

A man was walking along the street when he saw a ladder
going into the clouds. As any of us would do, he climbed
the ladder. He reached a cloud, upon which sat a rather
plump and very ugly woman. "Make love to me or climb the
ladder to success," she said.

No contest, thought the man, so he climbed the ladder to
the next cloud. On this cloud was a slightly thinner woman,
who was slightly easier on the eye. "Make love to me or
climb the ladder to success," she said. "Well," thought
the man, "might as well carry on."

On the next cloud was an even more attractive lady who,
this time, was quite attractive. "Make love to me or climb
the ladder to success," she uttered.

As he turned her down and went on up the ladder, the man
thought to himself that this was getting better the further
he went. On the next cloud was an absolute beauty. "Make
love to me now or climb the ladder to success," she flirted.

Unable to imagine what could be waiting, and being a
gambling man, he decided to climb again. When he reached the
next cloud, there was a 400 pound ugly man, arm pit hair
showing, flies buzzing around his head.

"Who are you?" the man asked.

"Hello" said the ugly fat man, "I'm Cess!"

An American tourist in Tel Aviv was about to enter the
impressive Mann Auditorium to take in a concert by the
Israel Philharmonic.

He was admiring the unique architecture, the sweeping lines
of the entrance, and the modern decor throughout the
building. Finally, he turned to his escort and asked if the
building was named for Thomas Mann, the world-famous author.

"No," his friend said, "it's named for Fredric Mann, from

"Really?" Remarked the tourist. "I never heard of him. What
did he write?"

"A check." was the reply. 

A 40 year old guy goes to the doctor, telling that he has a question.

He starts by saying that as he remembers, when he was 25, on an erection, 

he could not bend his penis, no matter how he tried, even with both hands.

The doctor asks what his question was.

He says that he comes to it. He should be patient !

Then, at 30, he could, with much effort, bend it using both hands, but never with one hand. 

At 35, he could hardly bend it with one hand.

The doctor asks : "why do you tell me all these things ? Ask your question or leave me".

The guy says : "Well, now that I can bend it with one hand, I wanted to know until which age I'm getting stronger and stronger ?" 

No Breaks !

A man asked his doctor if he thought he'd live to be a hundred. The
doctor asked the man, "Do you smoke or drink?"

"No," he replied, "I've never done either."

"Do you gamble, drive fast cars, and fool around with women?" inquired
the doctor.

"No, I've never done any of those things either."

"Well then," said the doctor, "what do you want to live to be a
hundred for?"

At a party an elderly couple was talking to a young couple. The
young man said to the old man, "I have heard tell that when you
get up in years, you can't have sex anymore."

we have sex almost every night."


"Sure.  Almost Monday, almost Tuesday, almost Wednesday . . ."

There once was a man who was so proud of the fact that
he had six kids that he insisted on calling his wife
"Mother of Six."
His wife hated this name and asked him repeatedly not to
call her that. But he was a stubborn man and was very
proud that he had six kids.
One evening they were at a dinner party given by his
company, and it was getting close to the time that
they should be leaving.
The husband yelled to his wife from across the room,
"Mother of Six, are you ready to go?"
Annoyed with his question, she yelled back,
"In a minute, Father of Four!"

There once was a young woman who went to confession. Upon entering the
confessional she said, "Forgive me Father, for I have sinned."

The priest said, "Confess your sins and be forgiven."

The young woman said, "Last night my boyfriend made mad passionate love to
me seven times."

The priest thought long and hard and then said, "Squeeze seven lemons into
a glass and then drink the juice."

The young woman asked, "Will this cleanse me of my sins?"

The Priest said "No, but it will wipe that smile off of your face."

BUT if your boss is a day off sick, he must be very ill.

If you take a stand, you're being bull-headed.
BUT if your boss does it, he's being firm.

If you overlooked a rule of etiquette, you're being rude.
BUT if your boss skips a few rules, he's being original.

If you please your boss, you're arse-creeping.
BUT if your boss please his boss, he's being co-operative.

If you do something without being told, you're overstepping your authority.
BUT if your boss does the same thing, that's initiative.

If you're out of the office, you're wandering around.
BUT if your boss is out of the office, he's on business.

If you apply for leave, you must be going for an interview.

There was this couple that was married for 20  years, and every time
they had sex the husband always insisted on shutting  off the lights.
Well, after 20 years the wife felt this was stupid. She  figured she would
him out of the crazy habit. So one night, while they  were in the middle of
it, she turned on the lights.  She looked down and saw her husband was
holding a dildo. She gets completely upset. "You impotent  bastard,"
she screamed at him, "how could you be lying to me all of these  years.

You better explain yourself!"

The husband looks her straight in the eyes and says, calmly... "I'll explain
the dildo if you can explain our three  kids.

An elderly gentleman went to the local drug store and
asked the pharmacist for Viagra. The pharmacist said
"That's no problem. How many do you want?"
The man answered, "Just a few, maybe four, but cut
each one in four pieces."
The pharmacist said, "That won't do you any good."
The elderly gentleman said, "That's alright. I don't
need them for sex anymore. I am over 80 years old.
I just want it to stick out far enough so I don't piss on my shoes."

A foursome of senior golfers hit the course with waning
enthusiasm for the sport. "These hills are getting steeper
as the years go by," one complained.

"These fairways seem to be getting longer too," said one
of the others.

"The sand traps seem to be bigger than I remember them,

This little boy goes to his dad and asks, "What is  politics?"
His dad says, "Well, son, let me try to explain it  this way:
I'm the breadwinner of the family, so let's call me Capitalism.
Your mom, she's  the administrator of the money, so we'll
call her the Government. We're here to take care of your needs, so we'll
you the People. The nanny, we'll consider her the Working Class.  And your
 baby brother, we'll call  him the Future.  Now, think about that and
see if it makes sense."

So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what his dad has said.
Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check
on him.
He finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper.  He goes to his
parents' room and finds his mother sound asleep.  Not wanting to wake  her,
he goes to the nanny's room.
Finding the door locked, he peeks in the keyhole and sees his father in bed
the nanny.

 He gives up and goes back to bed.
 The next morning, the little boy says to his
father, "Dad, I think I  understand the concept of politics now."
The father says, "Good, son, tell  me in your own words what you think
politics is all about."

The little boy replies, "Well, while Capitalism is  screwing the Working
Class, the Government is sound asleep, the People  are being ignored and the
Future is in deep shit."
