  1. Last December, Mark's grandmother was giving him directions to her apartment.
    "You come to the front door of the apartment complex.
    There is a big panel at the door. With your elbow push button 14T."
    She continued, "I will buzz you in. Come inside, the elevator is on the right.
    Get in, and with your elbow hit 14. I am on the left.
    With your elbow, hit my doorbell."
    "Grandma, that sounds easy," replied the grandson, "but why am I hitting all these buttons with my elbow"?
    To which she answered...
    "You're coming empty handed?"

  4.  
    One night, a torrential rain soaked South Louisiana; the next morning the resulting floodwaters came up about 6 feet into most of the homes there.
     
    Mrs. Boudreaux was sitting on her roof with her neighbor, Mrs. Thibodaux, waiting for help to come.
     
    Mrs. Thibodaux noticed a lone baseball cap floating near the house.
     
    Then she saw it float far out into the front yard, then float all the way back to the house; it kept floating away from the house, then back in.
     
    Her curiosity got the best of her, so she asked Mrs. Boudreaux, "Do you see that baseball cap floating away from the house, then back again?"
     
    Mrs. Boudreaux said, "Oh yes, that's my husband; I told him he was going to cut the grass today come Hell or high water!"
  5. GOLF:
    In primitive society, when native tribes beat the ground with clubs and yelled, it was called witchcraft; today, in civilized society, it is called golf.
     
    Golf is an expensive way of playing marbles.
     
    The secret of good golf is to hit the ball hard, straight and not too often.
     
    There are three ways to improve your golf game: take lessons, practice constantly -- or start cheating.
     
    An amateur golfer is one who addresses the ball twice - once before swinging, and once again, after swinging.
     
    Many a golfer prefers a golf cart to a caddy because it cannot count, criticize or laugh.
     
    Golf is a game in which the slowest people in the world are those in front of you, and the fastest are those behind.
     
    There's no game like golf: you go out with three friends, play eighteen holes, and return with three enemies.
     
    Golf got its name because all of the other four letter words were taken.
  6. What Gender is A Computer?:
     
    A Spanish teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine.
     
    ''House'' for instance, is feminine: ''la casa.''
     
    ''Pencil,'' however, is masculine: "el lapiz.''
     
    A student asked, ''What gender is 'computer'?''
     
    Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether ''computer'' should be a masculine or a feminine noun.
     
    Each group was asked to give four reasons for its recommendation.
     
    The men's group decided that ''computer'' should definitely be of the feminine gender (''la computadora''), because:
     
    1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic
     
    2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else
     
    3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval
     
    4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.
     
    The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be Masculine (''el computador''), because:
     
    1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on
     
    2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves
     
    3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem
     
    4. As soon as you commit to one, you realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.
     
    The women won!!!
  7. A new manager spends a week at his new office with the manager he is replacing. On the last day the departing manager tells him, "I have left three numbered envelopes in the desk drawer. Open an envelope if you encounter a crisis you can't solve."
     
    Three months down the track there is major drama, everything goes wrong - the usual stuff - and the manager feels very threatened by it all.
     
    He remembers the parting words of his predecessor and opens the first envelope. The message inside says "Blame your predecessor!" He does this and gets off the hook.
     
    About half a year later, the company is experiencing a dip in sales, combined with serious product problems. The manager quickly opens the second envelope. The message read, "Reorganize!" This he does, and the company quickly rebounds.
     
    Three months later, at his next crisis, he opens the third envelope. The message inside says "Prepare three envelopes"

    28.. The trouble with life is there's no background music.
    29.. The original point and click interface was a Smith and Wesson.
    30.. I smile because I don't know what the hell is going on.
  9. The only way to pull off a Sunday afternoon quickie with their 8-year-old son in the apartment was to send him out on the balcony with a popsicle and tell him to report on all the neighborhood activities. He began his commentary as his parents put their plan into operation.

    "There's a car being towed from the parking lot," he shouted. A few moments passed.

    "An ambulance just drove by."

    A few moments later, "Looks like the Anderson's have company," he called out. "Matt's riding a new bike."

    A few moments later, "Looks like the Sanders are moving." "Jason is on his skate board."

    A few more moments, "The Coopers are having sex."

    Startled, his mother and dad shot up in bed. Dad cautiously called out, "How do you know they are having sex?"

    "Jimmy Cooper is standing on his balcony with a popsicle too."

  10. Martha Stewart's Way Vs. My Way:
     
    Martha's way #1:
    Stuff a miniature marshmallow in the bottom of a sugar cone to prevent ice cream drips.
    My way:
    Just suck the ice cream out of the bottom of the cone, for pete's sake, you are probably laying on the couch with your feet up eating it anyway. You know we don't have anything better to do.
     
    Martha's way #2:
    Use a meat baster to "squeeze" your pancake batter onto the hot griddle and you'll get perfectly shaped pancakes every time.
    My way:
    Buy the precooked kind you nuke in the microwave for 30 seconds. The hard part is getting them out of the plastic bag.
     
    Martha's way #3:
    To keep potatoes from budding, place an apple in the bag with the potatoes.
    My way:
    Buy Hungry Jack mashed potato mix and keep it in the pantry for up to a year.
     
    Martha's way #4:
    To prevent egg shells from cracking, add a pinch of salt to the water before hard boiling.
    My way:
    Who cares if they crack, aren't you going to take the shells off anyway?
     
    Martha's way #5:
    To get the most juice out of fresh lemons, bring them to room temperature and roll them under your palm against the kitchen counter before squeezing.
    My way:
    Sleep with the lemons in between the mattress and box springs.
     
    Martha's way #6:
    To easily remove burnt-on food from your skillet,simply add a drop or two of dish soap and enough water to cover bottom of pan, and bring to a boil on stovetop.
    My way:
    Eat at Denny's every night and avoid cooking.
     
    Martha's way #7:
    Spray your Tupperware with nonstick cooking spray before pouring in tomato based sauces and there won't be any stains.
    My way:
    Feed your garbage disposal and there won't be any leftovers.
     
    Martha's way #8:
    When a cake recipe calls for flouring the baking pan, use a bit of the dry cake mix instead and there won't be any white mess on the outside of the cake.
    My way:
    Go to the bakery. They'll even decorate it for you.
     
    Martha's way #9:
    If you accidentally over salt a dish while it's still cooking, drop in a peeled potato and it will absorb the excess salt for an instant "fix me up"
    My way:
    If you over salt a dish while you are cooking, that's too darn bad.
    My motto:
    I made it and you will eat it and I don't care how bad it tastes.
     
    Martha's way #10:
    Wrap celery in aluminum foil when putting in the refrigerator and it will keep for weeks.
    My way:
    Celery? Never heard of the stuff.
     
    Martha's way #11:
    Brush some beaten egg white over pie crust before baking to yield a beautiful glossy finish.
    My way:
    The Mrs. Smith frozen pie directions do not include brushing egg whites over the crust and so I just won't do it.
     
    Martha's way #12:
    Place a slice of apple in hardened brown sugar to soften it.
    My Way:
    Brown sugar is supposed to be "soft"?
     
    Martha's way #13:
    When boiling corn on the cob, add a pinch of sugar to help bring out the corn's natural sweetness.
    My Way:
    The only kind of corn I buy comes in a can.
     
    Martha's way #14:
    To determine whether an egg is fresh, immerse it in a pan of cool, salted water. If it sinks, it is fresh, but if it rises to the surface, throw it away.
    My way:
    Eat, cook, or use the egg anyway. If you feel bad later, you will know it wasn't fresh.
     
    Martha's way #15:
    Cure for headaches: Take a lime, cut it in half and rub it on your forehead. The throbbing will go away.
    My way:
    Martha, dear, the only reason this works is because you can't rub a lime on your forehead without getting lime juice in your eye, and then the problem isn't the headache anymore, it is because you are now blind.
     
    Martha's way #16:
    Don't throw out all that leftover wine. Freeze into ice cubes for future use in casseroles and sauces.
    My way:
    Who has left over wine? Never happens in this house.
     
    Martha's way #17:
    If you have a problem opening jars: Try using latex dish washing gloves. They give a non slip grip that makes opening jars easy.
    My way:
    Go ask the very cute neighbor to do it.
     
    Martha's way #18:
    Potatoes will take food stains off your fingers. Just slice and rub raw potato on the stains and rinse with water.
    My way:
    Mashed potatoes will now be replacing the anti-bacterial soap in the handy dispenser next to my sink.
     
    Martha's way #19:
    Now look what you can do with Alka Seltzer. Clean a toilet. Drop in two Alka-Seltzer tablets, wait twenty minutes, brush and flush. The citric acid and effervescent action clean vitreous China. Clean a vase. To remove a stain from the bottom of a glass vase or cruet, fill with water and drop in two Alka-Seltzer tablets. Polish jewelry. Drop two Alka-Seltzer tablets into a glass of water and immerse the jewelry for two minutes. Clean a thermos bottle. Fill the bottle with water, drop in four Alka-Seltzer tablets, and let soak for an hour (or longer, if necessary).
    My way:
    Put your jewelry, vases, and thermos in the toilet. Add some Alka-Seltzer and you have solved a whole bunch of problems at once.
  11. NOAH TODAY:
    In the year 2014, the Lord came unto Noah, who was now living in Somerset and said: "Once again, the earth has become evil and I see the end of all flesh before me. Build another Ark and save 2 of every living thing along with a few good humans."
     
    He gave Noah the blueprints, saying: "You have 6 months to build the Ark before I will start the unending rain for 40 days and 40 nights."
     
    Six months later, the Lord looked down and saw Noah weeping in his yard - but no Ark. "Noah!" He roared, "I'm about to start the rain! Where is the Ark?"
    "Forgive me, Lord," begged Noah, "but things have changed."
     
    "I needed a Building Permit."
     
    "I've been arguing with the Boat Inspector about the need for a sprinkler system."
     
    "My neighbors claim that I've violated the Neighborhood By-Laws by building the Ark in my back garden and exceeding the height limitations. We had to go to the Local Planning Committee for a decision."
     
    "Then the Local Council and the Electric Company demanded a boat load of money for the future costs of moving power lines and other overhead obstructions, to clear the passage for the Ark's move to the sea. I told them that the sea would be coming to us, but they would hear nothing of it."
    "Getting the wood was another problem. There's a ban on cutting local trees in order to save the Greater Spotted Barn Owl. I tried to convince the environmentalists that I needed the wood to save the owls - but no go!"
     
    "When I started gathering the animals the RSPCA took me to court. They insisted that I was confining wild animals against their will. They argued the accommodations were too restrictive, and it was cruel and inhumane to put so many animals in a confined space."
     
    "Then the Environmental Protection Agency ruled that I couldn't build the Ark until they'd conducted an environmental impact study on your proposed flood."
     
    "I'm still trying to resolve a complaint with the Human Rights Commission on how many minorities I'm supposed to hire for my building crew."
    "Immigration is checking the Visa status of most of the people who want to work."
     
    "The Trades Unions say I can't use my sons. They insist I have to hire only Union workers with ark-building experience."
     
    "To make matters worse, the Internal Revenue Service seized all my assets, claiming I'm trying to leave the country illegally with endangered species."
     
    "So, forgive me, Lord, but it would take at least 10 years for me to finish this Ark."
     
    "Suddenly the skies cleared, the sun began to shine, and a rainbow stretched across the sky.
     
    Noah looked up in wonder and asked, "You mean you're not going to destroy the world?"
     
    "No," said the Lord. " The Government beat me to it”.
  12. An older gent had an appointment to see a urologist who shared an office with several other doctors. The waiting room was filled with patients.

    He approached the receptionist desk. The receptionist was a large imposing woman who looked like a wrestler. He gave her his name.

    In a very load voice the receptionist said, "Yes, I see your name here... you want to see the doctor about impotence, right?"

    The heads of all the patients in the waiting room snapped around, to look at the very embarrassed man.

    He recovered quickly though, and in an equally loud voice replied, "No, I've come to inquire about a sex change operation... and I'd like the same doctor that did yours!"

  16. The bartender asks the guy sitting at the bar, "What'll you have?"

    The guy answers, "A scotch, please."

    The bartender hands him the drink, and says "That'll be five dollars," to which the guy replies, "What are you talking about? I don't owe you anything for this."

    A lawyer, sitting nearby and overhearing the conversation, then says to the bartender, "You know, he's got you there. In the original offer, which constitutes a binding contract upon acceptance, there was no stipulation of remuneration."

    The bartender was not impressed, but says to the guy, "Okay, you beat me for a drink. But don't ever let me catch you in here again."

    The next day, same guy walks into the bar. Bartender says, "What the heck are you doing in here? I can't believe you've got the audacity to come back!"

    The guy says, "What are you talking about? I've never been in this place in my life!"

    The bartender replies, "I'm very sorry, but this is uncanny. You must have a double."

    To which the guy replies, "Thank you. Make it a scotch."

  17. BUMPER STICKERS:

    Warning: Dates on calendar are closer than they appear.

    I'm not crazy, I've just been in a very bad mood for 30 years.

    Allow me to introduce my selves.

    Sarcasm is just one more service I offer.

    Whatever kind of look you were going for, you missed.

    I'm trying to imagine you with a personality.

    Stress is when you wake up screaming and you realize you weren't asleep.

    I can't remember if I'm the good twin or the evil one.

    I just want revenge. Is that so wrong?

    Bewildered, Mr. Wilson was halfway to the parking lot with his wife when he choked, "I...I...didn't pinch that girl."
     
    "Of course you didn't" said his wife, consolingly. "I did."
  19. Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?

    As told by famous people:

    AN ORTHODOX RABBI: It was the Sabbath what was he going to do, drive there?

    THE POPE: The chicken was motivated to cross the road because he realized that only by doing so could he achieve Salvation.

    PAT BUCHANAN: To steal the job of a decent, hardworking American.

    GRANDPA: In my day we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Somebody told us the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough.

    BARBARA WALTERS: Isn't that interesting? In a few moments, we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart warming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting, and went on to accomplish its lifelong dream of crossing the road.

    MARTHA STEWART: No one called me to warn me which way that chicken was going. I had a standing order at the Farmer's Market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.

    GEORGE H. W. BUSH: The chicken saw a thousand points of light and crossed the road.

    DAN QUAYLE: I had not heard the chicken crossed the road.

    PLATO: For the greater good.

    ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross roads.

    KARL MARX: It was a historical inevitability.

    TIMOTHY LEARY: Because that's the only trip the establishment would let it take.

    JOE BIDEN: I forget.

    CAPTAIN JAMES T. KIRK: To boldly go where no chicken has gone before.

    HIPPOCRATES: Because of an excess of phlegm in its pancreas.

    MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.: I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads without having their motives called into question.

    MOSES: And God came down from the Heavens, and He said unto the chicken, "Thou shalt cross the road." And the chicken crossed the road, and there was much rejoicing.

    FOX MULDER: You saw it cross the road with your own eyes. How many more chickens have to cross the road before you believe it?

    RICHARD M. NIXON: The chicken did not cross the road. I repeat, the chicken did NOT cross the road.

    MACHIAVELLI: The point is that the chicken crossed the road. Who cares why? The end of crossing the road justifies whatever motive there was.

    JERRY SEINFELD: Why does anyone cross a road? I mean, why doesn't anyone ever think to ask, What the heck was this chicken doing walking around all over the place, anyway?"

    FREUD: The fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.

    BILL GATES: I have just released the new Chicken Office 2011, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your check book.

    OLIVER STONE: The question is not, "Why did the chicken cross the road?" Rather, it is, "Who was crossing the road at the same time, whom we overlooked in our haste to observe the chicken crossing?"

    CHARLES DARWIN: Chickens, over great periods of time, have been naturally selected in such a way that they are now genetically disposed to cross roads.

    EINSTEIN: Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road moved beneath the chicken depends upon your frame of reference.

    BUDDHA: Asking this question denies your own chicken nature.

    RALPH WALDO EMERSON: The chicken did not cross the road . It transcended it.

    ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die. In the rain.

    COLONEL SANDERS: I missed one?

    MICHAEL SCHUMACHER; it was an instinctive maneuver, the chicken obviously didn't see the road until he had already started to cross.

  20. Some people have skeletons in their closet. I have a whole graveyard!

    Do ten millipedes equal one centipede?

    The best contraceptive for old people is nudity.

    I've been on so many blind dates, I should get a free dog.

    I wondered why the Frisbee was getting bigger, and then it hit me.

    Those that forget the pasta are doomed to reheat it.

    Take everything in moderation. Including moderation.

    There are two rules for success: 1.) Don't tell all you know.

    Some days it's not worth chewing through the straps.

    Do not follow, for I may not lead. Do not lead, for I may not follow. Just go over there somewhere, please?

    Never go to bed angry, stay awake and plot your revenge.

    If at first you don't succeed, try left field.

    If #2 pencils are the most popular, why are they still #2?

    I live in California, and my watch is three hours fast, I can't fix it, so I'm moving to New York.

    I don't want buns of steel. I want buns of cinnamon.

    Ask to see my tattoo of a rose, but don't ask outside. I'm constantly bothered by bees.

    It's not who you know, it's whom you know.

    Follow your dreams, except for that one where you're naked at work.

    Which one of these is the non-smoking lifeboat?

    Marriage is not a word. It's a sentence.

    Originality is the art of concealing your sources.

    Photons have mass? I didn't even know they were Catholic.

    All I ask is a chance to prove money can't make me happy.

    Wear a watch and you'll always know what time it is. Wear two watches and you'll never be sure.

    How long a minute is depends on what side of the bathroom door you're on.
