A Question That Completely Ruined the Moment

One day my wife was out shopping and I was watching our children ages five and two. My son was playing with the dog. My daughter, the two year old, was playing with her Barbie.

She and Barbie were having a little coffee get-together. I thought it was very nice of her to offer me a cup of coffee, and happily accepted even though it was just water.

After several cups and lots of praise for such delicious coffee, my wife came rolling in with the groceries. She watched as my daughter brought in other cup of coffee, started laughing, and asked me how many cups I'd drank.

When I admitted that I was waterlogged from all the coffee, my wife broke into hysterical laughter. Through the tears of laughter rolling down her cheeks she asked me a question that completely ruined that precious moment forever.

'

Did it ever occur to you', she said, 'that the only place a baby can reach water is the toilet?'

A Friend's Passing

Bob and Ed were best friends and had been for fifty plus years. After Ed died, Bob was inconsolable for many weeks. He couldn't eat, he couldn't sleep, he just wanted to sit in misery.

Finally one night, Bob was able to fall into a fitful sleep and Ed came to him in a dream.

"Ed! I've really missed you. Tell me, what's it like on the other side?"

"Well...it's GREAT! I can run like the wind if I want to because my knees don't hurt any more. If I get hungry, there's always food around. If I want to sleep, there's always a comfortable place to lay down under my feet. If I get horny, there are willing females all over the place."

Bob replies "Heaven sounds like a great place!"

"About That" "I'm a Rabbit in Tennessee"

Fun Facts

Q: Why do men’s clothes have buttons on the right while women’s clothes have buttons on the left?

A: When buttons were invented, they were very expensive and worn primarily by the rich. Since most people are right-handed, it is easier to push buttons on the right through holes on the left. Because wealthy women were dressed by maids, dressmakers put the buttons on the maid’s right! And that’s where women’s buttons have remained since.

Deep Thoughts About Fishing

There really only two kinds of fishermen, Sport fishermen and those who catch fish.

Do fishermen live in the reel world?

Is it true that if you give a man a fish, he will eat for a day but if you teach him how to fish, he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day?

Isn't fishing just a jerk on one end of the line waiting for a jerk at the other?

Who edits fishing shows? How do they decide what's too boring?

Why do fish grow fastest between the time they're caught and the bar in port?

Why is it that nothing increases the size of a fish like fishing all by yourself?

Why is it that you never see a fish mounted on a wall with it's mouth shut?

Wouldn't living be easier if men showed as much patience at home as they do when they're fishing?

Work or Pleasure

An Army Colonel was about to start the morning briefing to his staff. While waiting for the coffee machine to finish its brewing he decided to pose a question to all assembled.

He explained that his wife had been a bit frisky the night before and he failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep. He posed the question of just how much of sex was "work" and how much of it was "pleasure?"

A Major chimed in with 75-25% in favour of work.

A Captain said it was 50-50%.

A Lieutenant responded with 25-75% in favour of pleasure, depending upon his state of inebriation at the time.

There being no consensus, the Colonel turned to the Corporal who was in charge of making the coffee and asked what was his opinion?

Without any hesitation, the young Corporal responded, "Sir, it has to be 100% pleasure."

The Colonel was surprised and, as you might guess, asked why?

"Well sir”, he said, “if there was any work involved, the officers would have me doing it for them."
