Santa Singh died and went to heaven. When he got to the pearly gate Saint Peter told him that new rules were in effect due to the advances in education on earth. In order to gain admittance a prospective heavenly soul must answer two questions:1. Name two days of the week that begin with “T”. 2. How many seconds are there in a year? Santa thought for a few minutes and answered…1. The two days of the week that begin with “T” are Today and Tomorrow. 2. There are 12 seconds in a year. Saint Peter said, “OK, I’ll buy the Today and Tomorrow, even though it’s not the answer I expected, so your answer is correct. But how did you get only 12 seconds in a year?” Santa replied, “Well, January 2nd, February 2nd, March 2nd, etc….”Saint Peter lets him in without another word”      (Marlon)

I was packing for my business trip and my three year old daughter was having a wonderful time playing on the bed. At one point she said, "Daddy, look at this," and stuck out two of her fingers.

Trying to keep her entertained, I reached out and stuck her tiny fingers in my mouth and said, "Daddy's gonna eat your fingers,"  pretending to eat them.
Went back to packing, looked up again and my daughter was standing on the bed staring at her fingers with a devastated look on her face.
I said, "What's wrong, honey?"
She replied, "What happened to my booger?"

Hearing Test   HIGH MATH

 A man feared his wife was not hearing as well as she used to,  and he thought she might need a hearing aid.

 Not quite sure how to approach her, he called the family doctor to discuss the problem.

  The doctor told him there is a simple informal test the husband could  perform to give the doctor a better idea about her hearing loss.

 "Here's what you do," said the doctor.

 "Stand about 40 feet away from her and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you.   If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a  response."

   That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was in the den.

  He says to himself, "I'm about 40 feet away. Let's see what happens."

  In a normal tone he asks,
  "Honey, what's for dinner?"

  No response.

 

 

  So the husband moves to closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his wife, and repeats,

  "Honey, what's for dinner?"
Still no response.


   Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his wife and asks,
"Honey, What's for dinner?"
  Again, no response.

   So, he walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away.
  "Honey, What's for dinner?"
   Again, there is no response.

   So he walks right up behind her.
"Honey, what's for dinner?"

Little Zachary was doing very badly in math. His parents had tried everything: tutors, mentors, flash cards, special learning centers. In short, everything they could think of to help his math.

     Finally, in a last ditch effort, they took Zachary down and enrolled him in the local Catholic school. After the first day, little Zachary came home with a very serious look on his face. He didn't even kiss his mother hello. Instead, he went straight to his room and started studying. Books and papers were spread out all over the room and little Zachary was hard at work.

     His mother was amazed. She called him down to dinner. To her shock, the minute he was done, he marched back to his room without a word, and in no time, he was back hitting the books as hard as before. This went on for some time, day after day, while the mother tried to understand what made all the difference.

     Finally, little Zachary brought home his report card. He quietly laid it on the table, went up to his room and hit the books. With great trepidation, his Mom looked at it and to her great surprise, little Zachary got an "A"  in math.
     She could no longer hold her curiosity. She went to his room and said, "Son, what was it? Was it the nuns?" Little Zachary looked at her and shook his head, no. "Well, then," she replied, "was it the books, the discipline, the structure, the uniforms? WHAT WAS IT?

     Little Zachary looked at her and said, "Well, on the first day of school when I saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I knew they weren't fooling around."

OH, HEAVENS...  

The power of Aspirin

On their way to get married, a young Catholic couple is involved in a fatal car accident. The couple find themselves sitting outside the Pearly Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven. While waiting, they begin to wonder: Could they possibly get married in Heaven?

When St. Peter shows up, they ask him and St. Peter says, “I don’t know. This is the first time anyone has asked. Let me go find out,” and he leaves.

The couple sits and waits for an answer. Two months pass and the couple are still waiting. So as they wait, they discuss that IF they were allowed to get married in Heaven, SHOULD they get married, what with the eternal aspect of it all. “What if it doesn’t work?” they wonder, “Are we stuck together FOREVER?” After yet another month, St. Peter

finally returns, looking somewhat ragged.

”Yes,” he informs the couple, “you CAN get married in Heaven.”

”Great!” says the couple, “But we were just wondering, what if things don’t work out? Could we also get a divorce in Heaven?” St. Peter, red-faced with anger, slams his clipboard onto the ground.


”What’s wrong?” inquires the frightened couple.

”OH, COME ON!” St. Peter shouts, “It took me 3 months to find a priest up here! Do you have ANY idea how long it’ll take me to find a lawyer?”

A guy is out with buddies - has few drinks - is feeling a little frisky But, true to his wife, goes home. He finds her sound asleep in bed with Her mouth wide open, so he gets two aspirin and drops them in her mouth.

She starts to choke, but recovers and asks - "What did you put in my mouth?"

He says, "Two aspirin."

She replies, "BUT I DON'T HAVE A HEADACHE!"

He says, - "That's all I wanted to hear"

DUCK BILL    

A woman brought a very limp duck into a veterinary surgeon. As she lay her pet on the table, the vet pulled out his stethoscope and listened to the bird's chest. After a moment or two, the vet shook his head sadly and said, "I'm so sorry, your Duck, Cuddles, has passed away."

The distressed owner wailed, "Are you sure?  "Yes, I am sure. The duck is dead," he replied.

"How can you be so sure," she protested. "I mean, you haven't done any testing on him or anything. He might just be in a coma or something."

The vet rolled his eyes, turned around and left the room, and returned a few moments later with a black Labrador Retriever. As the duck's owner looked on in amazement, the dog stood on his hind legs, put his front paws on the examination table and sniffed the duck from top to bottom. He then looked at the vet with sad eyes and shook his head. The vet patted the dog and took it out, and returned a few moments later with a cat.

The cat jumped up on the table and also sniffed delicately at the bird from head to foot. The cat sat back on its haunches, shook its head, meowed softly and strolled out of the room. The vet looked at the woman and said,
"I'm sorry, but as I said, this is most definitely, 100% certifiably, a dead duck."

Then the vet turned to his computer terminal, hit a few keys and produced a bill, which he handed to the woman. The duck's owner, still in shock, took the bill. "$150!", she cried, "$150 just to tell me my duck is dead!!"

The vet shrugged. "I'm sorry. If you'd taken my word for it, the bill would have been $20 but with the Lab Report and the Cat Scan, it's now $150.00."

Fishermen

Immediately, the Pope shouted and  summoned them to the beach. "I give you my blessing for your brave actions," he  told them.  "I heard that there was some bitter hatred  between Yankee and Mets fans, but now I have seen with my own eyes  that this is not the truth."

As the Pope drove off, the  harpooner asked his buddies "Who was that?"

"It was the Pope," one replied.  "He is in direct contact with God and has access to all of God's wisdom."  

"Well," the harpooner said, "he  may have access to God's wisdom, but he doesn't know didley about shark  fishing.... how's the bait holding up?"  

(Rich)

Memorial Stone

On a tour of Florida , the Pope  took a couple of days off to visit the coast for some sightseeing.   He was cruising along the beach in the PopeMobile when there was a  frantic commotion just off shore.

A helpless man, wearing a NY  Mets jersey, was struggling frantically to free himself from the jaws of a  25-foot shark.

As the Pope watched, horrified, a  speedboat raced up with three men wearing NY Yankees jerseys aboard.   One quickly fired a harpoon into the shark's side. The other two reached  out and pulled the bleeding, semi-conscious Mets fan from the water.  

Then using baseball bats  (autographed by Derek Jeter himself), the three heroes beat the  shark to death and hauled it into the boat.

Joe died.  His will provided $30,000 for an elaborate funeral. As the last guests departed the affair, his wife, Helen, turned to her oldest friend.
"Well, I'm sure Joe would be pleased," she said.

"I'm sure you're right," replied Jody, who lowered her voice and leaned in close.

"How much did this really cost?"

"All of it," said Helen. "Thirty thousand."

"No!" Jody exclaimed. "I mean, it was very nice, but  $30,000?"

Helen answered, "The funeral was $6,500. I donated $500 to the church. The wake, food and drinks were another $500. The rest went for the memorial stone."

Jody computed quickly. "$22,500 for a memorial stone? My God, how big is it?!"

"Two and a half carats."*

THE HAIR CUT   FAIR WARNINGS
         A young boy had just gotten his driving permit. 
         He asked his father, who was a Minister, if they could discuss his use of the family car.
        His father took him into his study and said,
        "I'll make a deal with you. You bring your grades up, study the Bible a little, get your hair cut and then we'll talk about it."
         After about a month, the boy came back and again asked his father if they could discuss his use of the car.
        They again went into the father's study
        where the father said,
        "Son, I've been very proud of you.  You have brought your grades up, you've studied the Bible diligently, but you didn't get your hair cut."
         The young man waited a moment and then replied,
        "You know, Dad, I've been thinking about that.  You know Samson had long hair, Moses had long hair, Noah had long hair, and even Jesus had long hair."
        The Minister said, "Yes, and everywhere they went, they walked."

THERMODYNAMICS OF HELL

The following is an actual exam question given on a University of Washington chemistry mid term. The answer by one student was so “profound” that the professor shared it with colleagues, via the Internet, which is, of course, why we now have the pleasure of enjoying it as well.

Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle’s Law, (gas cools off when it expands and heats up when it is compressed) or some variant.

One student, however, wrote the following:

“First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So we need to know the rate that souls are moving into Hell and the rate they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave.

Therefore; no souls are leaving. As for how many souls are entering Hell, lets look at the different religions that exist in the world today. Some of these religions state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to Hell.

Since there are more than one of these religions and since people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that most souls go to Hell.

With birth and death rates as they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase exponentially. Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because Boyle’s Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand proportionately as souls are added. This gives two possibilities:

1.   If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will increase until all Hell breaks loose.

2.   If Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.

 So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa during my Freshman year, “...that it will be a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you.”, and take into account the fact that I still have not succeeded in having that event take place, then, #2 cannot be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic and will not freeze.”

**The student received the only “A” given.

Nutrition and Health From Snopes.com...
Here’s the final word on nutrition and health. It’s a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting medical studies.

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

3. The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

4. The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats & suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

... a reader asks: "I received this email, is it true?"
The French Leader got a coded message from the Bush Administration.
It read: S370HSSV-0773H
The French were stumped and sent for the French Information Agency. The FIA was stumped too, so it went to the Russians.
The Russians couldn't solve it either, so they asked the Germans.
The Germans having received this same message during W.W.II from the Americans suggested turning it upside down

There are Teachers, and then there are Educators

According to a news report, Mount Ida High School recently was faced with a unique problem.

A number of girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom.

That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.

Every night, the maintenance man would remove them; and the next day, the girls would put them back.

Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man.

She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night.

To demonstrate how difficult it was to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to clean the mirrors. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it.

Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror.

There are Teachers, and then there are Educators  (Ilko)

Subject: Engineering

The U.S. standard railroad gauge (distance between the rails) is 4 feet, 8.5 inches. That is an exceedingly odd number.

Why was that gauge used? Because that is the way they built them in England, and the U.S. railroads were built by English expatriates. 

Why did the English build them that way? Because the first rail lines were built by the same people who built the pre-railroad tramways, and that’s the gauge they used.

Why did "they" use that gauge? Because the people who built the tramways used the same jigs and tools that they used for building wagons, which used that wheel spacing.

So why did the wagons have that particular odd spacing? Well, if they tried to use any other spacing, the wagon wheels would break on some of the old, long distance roads in England, because that was the spacing of the wheel ruts.

So who built those old rutted roads? The first long distance roads in Europe (and England) were built by imperial Rome for their legions.

The roads have been used ever since.

The U.S. standard railroad gauge of 4 feet-8.5 inches derives from the original specification for an Imperial Roman war chariot.

 

And the ruts in the roads? The ruts in the roads, which everyone had to match for fear of destroying their wagon wheels, were first formed by Roman war chariots. Since the chariots were made for (or by) Imperial Rome, they were all alike in the matter of wheel spacing.

Specifications and bureaucracies live forever. So the next time you are handed a specification and wonder what horse’s ass came up with it, you may be exactly right, because the Imperial Roman war chariots were made just wide enough to accommodate the back end of two war horses. Thus we have the answer to the original question.

Now for the twist to the story. When we see a space shuttle sitting on it’s launching pad, there are two booster rockets attached to the side of the main fuel tank. These are solid rocket boosters, or SRB’s. The SRB’s are made by Thiokol at their factory in Utah. The engineers who designed the SRB’s might have preferred to make them a bit fatter, but the SRB’s had to be shipped by train from the factory to the launch site. The railroad line from the factory had to run through a tunnel in the mountains. The tunnel is slightly wider than the railroad track, and the railroad track is about as wide as two horses’ rumps.

So, a major design feature of what is arguably the world’s most advanced transportation system was determined over two thousand years ago by the width of a horse’s ass!

Don’t you just love engineering?

Before It Starts
A man comes home from work, sits in his lazyboy in front of the TV and rudely tells his wife,

"Gimme a beer before it starts".

She gives him his beer.

About 15 minutes later, he says again, "Gimme a beer before it starts".

She does.

A few minutes later, he asks again for a beer.

The wife says, "Don't you think you're drinking too much beer? It hasn't been half an hour that you got here and you've already had two beers. I'm getting fed up with this."

The husband looks up and mumbles, "Now it starts."  (MeMail.com)

Haiku poetry has strict construction rules. Each poem has only three lines with 17 syllables: five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five in the third. Haiku are used to communicate timeless messages often containing references to nature and which are intended to achieve a wistful, yearning and powerful insight through extreme brevity -- the essence of Zen:

Holmes & Watson

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal and a bottle of wine they went into their tent for a good night's sleep. Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend.

" Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."

Watson replied, "I see millions and millions of stars"

"What does that tell you"? said Holmes.

Watson pondered for a minute. "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?"

"Watson, you idiot. Some bastard has stolen our tent."

The Wedding

Four young novice nuns were about to take their vows, dressed in their white gowns. They came into the chapel where the mother superior was waiting for them for the ceremony to marry them to God.

In front of them on the table were the four wedding rings. Just as the ceremony was about to begin, 4 Hasidic men with their yarmulkes, payis and long beards came in and sat silently in the front row.

Somewhat taken aback, the mother superior said to them. " I am honored that you would want to share this experience with us, but do you mind if I ask you why you came?"

"We' re from the groom's side"

Some Days

A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts:

"Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?"

The man below says: "yes you're in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this field."

"You must work in Information Technology" says the balloonist.

"I do" replies the man. "How did you know."

"Well" says the balloonist, "everything you have told me is technically correct, but it's no use to anyone."

The man below says "you must work in Management.

"I do" replies the balloonist, "but how did you know?"

"Well", says the man, "you don't know where you are, or where you're going, but you expect me to be able to help. You're in the same position you were before we met, but now it's my fault."

AN OLD MAN, A BOY AND A DONKEY ...

...WERE GOING TO TOWN. THE BOY RODE ON THE DONKEY AND THE OLD MAN WALKED. AS THEY WENT ALONG THEY PASSED SOME PEOPLE WHO REMARKED, "IT WAS A SHAME THE OLD MAN WAS WALKING AND THE BOY WAS RIDING."

THE MAN AND BOY THOUGHT MAYBE THE CRITICS WERE RIGHT, SO THEY CHANGED POSITIONS.

LATER THEY PASSED SOME PEOPLE THAT REMARKED,"WHAT A SHAME, HE MAKES THAT LITTLE BOY WALK."

THEY DECIDED THEY BOTH WOULD WALK!

SOON THEY PASSED SOME MORE PEOPLE WHO THOUGHT THEY WERE STUPID TO WALK WHEN THEY HAD A DECENT DONKEY TO RIDE.

SO, THEY BOTH RODE THE DONKEY!

NOW THEY PASSED SOME PEOPLE THAT SHAMED THEM BY SAYING, "HOW AWFUL TO PUT SUCH A LOAD ON A POOR DONKEY."

THE BOY AND MAN SAID THEY WERE PROBABLY RIGHT SO THEY DECIDED TO CARRY THE DONKEY.

AS THEY CROSSED A BRIDGE, THEY LOST THEIR GRIP ON THE ANIMAL AND HE FELL INTO THE RIVER AND DROWNED.

THE MORAL OF THE STORY? ........ IF YOU TRY TO PLEASE EVERYONE, YOU WILL EVENTUALLY LOSE YOUR ASS. (Source: Arthur -- a New World version of a Nasreddin Hoca fable))

Do you know me?
A small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness to the stand in a trial -- a grandmotherly, elderly woman.

He approached her and asked, "Mrs. Jones, do you know me?"

She responded, "Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a young boy. And frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a rising big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you will never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you."

The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, "Mrs. Williams, do you know the defense attorney?"

She replied, "Why, yes I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. I used to baby-sit him for his parents. And he, too, has been a real disappointment to me. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. The man can't build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the shoddiest in the entire state. Yes, I know him."

At this point, the judge rapped the courtroom to silence and called both counselors to the bench.

In a very quiet voice, he said with menace, "If either of you ask her if she knows me - I will hold you in contempt of court!!"

Santa & the little angel
One particular Christmas season a long time ago, Santa was getting ready for his annual trip ... but there were problems everywhere.
Four of his elves got sick, and the trainee elves did not produce the toys as fast as the regular ones so Santa was beginning to feel the pressure of being behind schedule.
Then Mrs.Claus told Santa that her mom was coming to visit.
This stressed Santa even more.
When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were about to give birth and two had jumped the fence and were out, heaven knows where. More stress.
Then when he began to load the sleigh one of the boards cracked and the toy bag fell to the ground and scattered the toys. So, frustrated, Santa went into the house for a cup of coffee and a shot of whiskey.
When he went to the cupboard, he discovered that the elves had hid the liquor and there was nothing to drink. In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the coffee pot and it broke into hundreds of little pieces all over the kitchen floor.
He went to get the broom and found that mice had eaten the straw it was made from.
Just then the doorbell rang and Santa cussed on his way to the door. He opened the door and there was a little angel with a great big Christmas tree. The angel said, very cheerfully, "Merry Christmas Santa. Isn't it just a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you.
Isn't it just a lovely tree? Where would you like me to stick it?
Thus began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas tree.

My Friends, I give you… THE DUMBEST GUY ON EARTH!

---This picture is real - not doctored in anyway - and was taken recently by a Transportation Supervisor for a company that delivers building materials for 84 Lumber. When he saw it in the parking lot of IHOP, he went and bought a camera to take pictures.
---The car is still running, as can be witnessed by the exhaust. A woman is either asleep or otherwise out in the front seat passenger side. The guy driving it was jogging up and down on Rt. 925. (in the background)
---Witnesses said their physical state was OTHER than normal. The driver finally came back after the police were called, and was found crouched behind the rear of the car, attempting to cut the twine around the load! Luckily, the police stopped him and had the load removed.
---The materials were loaded at Home Depot. Their store manager said they had the customer sign a waiver. While the plywood and 2X4s are fairly obvious, what you can’t see is the back seat, which contains -- are you ready for this? --10 bags of concrete @ 80 lbs. each. They estimated the load weight at 3000 lbs.
---Both back tires exploded, the wheels bent and the back shocks were driven through the floorboard. The car, with FL plates (naturally), was headed for Annapolis, where the couple presumably planned to build a new house in which to smoke their crack.
