lottery

Woman comes flying into the driveway, runs into the house, tells her husband "pack your bags, I just won the lottery!" He says "OMG, you finally did it after all of these years!" He says "Do I pack for the beach, mountains or what?" she says "I don't care, just get the h--- out!"

military man

At a party a cute young girl sees a grizzled old retired military guy who she had heard lost his wife years ago. Feeling sorry for him she asks "when was the last time you had sex sir?" He thinks a minute and says "1955". She says "come with me into the next room" After an hour of passion she says "how was that after no sex for so long?" He says "what do you mean by "in so long?" she says "Well, you said the last time was 1955" He says "Yeah, but it is only 2055 now"

GeorgeBush, Queen Elizabeth, and Vladimir Putin all die and go to hell. While there, they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for.
The devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.

Putin asks to call Russiaand talks for 5 minutes. When he is finished the devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin writes him a check.

Next Queen Elizabeth calls Englandand talks for 30 minutes. When she is finished the devil informs her thatthe cost is 6 million dollars, so she writes him a check.

Finally George Bush gets his turn and talks for 4 hours. When he is finished the devilinforms him that the cost is $5.00.

WhenPutin hears this he goes ballistic and asks the devil why Bush got to call the USA so cheaply.


The devil smiles and replies, " Since Obama took over , the country has gone to hell, so it's a local call."

Why Sharks Circle You Before Attacking...

Two great white sharks swimming in the ocean spied survivors of a sunken
ship.
"Follow me son" the father shark said to the son shark and they swam
to the mass of people.
"First we swim around them a few times with just the tip of our fins
showing."
And they did.
"Well done, son! Now we swim around them a few times with all of our
fins showing."
And they did.
"Now we eat everybody."
And they did.
When they were both gorged, the son asked,
"Dad, why didn't we just eat them all at first?
Why did we swim around and around them?"
His wise father replied,
"Because they taste better without the **** inside!"

Military Rules

US Marine Corps Rules:

1. Be courteous to everyone, friendly to no one.
2. Decide to be aggressive enough, quickly enough.
3. Have a plan.
4. Have a back-up plan, because the first one probably won't work.
5. Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everyone you meet.
6. Do not attend a gunfight with a handgun whose caliber does not start with a "4."
7. Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Ammo is cheap. Life is expensive.
8. Move away from your attacker. Distance is your friend. (Lateral & diagonal preferred.)
9. Use cover or concealment as much as possible.
10. Flank your adversary when possible. Protect yours.
11. Always cheat; always win. The only unfair fight is the one you lose.
12. In ten years nobody will remember the details of caliber, stance, or tactics. They will only remember who lived.
13. If you are not shooting, you should be communicating your intention to shoot.

Navy SEALS Rules:

1. Look very cool in sunglasses.
2. Kill every living thing within view.

US Army Rules:

1. Select a new beret to wear.
2. Sew patches on right shoulder.

That realistic assessment is too close to the truth to be a funny joke...

Does it bother anyone else when someone is on their cell phone and
conducts very personal calls that you really don't want to hear but
are trapped into listening to? You'll enjoy this one:

After a busy day, and just as everyone was settling down for a nap on
the train for home, a man sitting in the midst hauled out his cell
phone and started up a loud, lengthy conversation:

"Hi darling, it's Bob... I'm on the train...Yes, I know it's the 6:30
not the 4:30, but I had a long meeting...No, not with that floozie
from the typing pool, with the boss... No, darling, you're the only
one in my life...Yes, I'm sure, cross my heart, etc., etc., etc.,
etc., etc., blah, blah, blah . . ."

When this went on more than 15 minutes, a young woman sitting opposite
him, driven beyond endurance, yelled at the top of her voice,
"Hey, Bob! Turn off that phone and come back to bed!"

There really is a town in Norway called Hell. And since Norway gets pretty cold at times, I guess that it won't be long until Hell freezes over. Look like I might be getting that raise after all!

Tonsils Out


Two little kids are in a hospital, lying on beds next to each other, waiting outside the operating Room.
The first kid leans over and asks, 'What are you in here for?'

The second kid says, 'I'm in here to get my tonsils out and I'm a little nervous.'
The first kid says, 'You've got nothing to worry about. I had that done when I was

four. They put you to sleep, and when you wake up they give you lots of Jell-O and

ice cream. It's abreeze.'
The second kid then asks, 'What are you in here for?'
The first kid says, 'A circumcision.'
And the second kid says, 'Whoa, good luck with that one, buddy! I had that done when I was BORN ...Couldn't walk for a year.

THE DEAF ITALIAN BOOKKEEPER

Mafia Godfather finds out that his bookkeeper, Guido, has cheated him out of US$10,000,000.00
His bookkeeper is deaf. That was the reason he got the job in the first place
It was assumed that Guido would hear nothing, so he would not have to testify in court.
When the Godfather goes to confront Guido about his missing US$10 million, he takes along his lawyer who knows sign language.
The Godfather tells the lawyer: "Ask him where the money is!”
The lawyer, using sign language, asks Guido: “Where's the money?”
Guido signs back: "I don't know what you are talking about."
The lawyer tells the Godfather: "He says he doesn't know what you are talking about."
The Godfather pulls out a pistol, puts it to Guido's head and says: "Ask him again or I'll kill him!"
The lawyer signs to Guido: "He'll kill you if you don't tell him."
Guido trembles and signs back: "OK! You win! The money is in a brown briefcase, buried behind the shed at my cousin Bruno's house.”
The Godfather asks the lawyer: "What did he say? "The lawyer replies: "He says you don't have the Guts to pull the trigger"

An elderly man was stopped by the police around 2 a.m.
And was asked where he was going at that time of night.
The man replied, "I'm on my way to a lecture about alcohol abuse and the effects it has on the human body, as well as smoking and staying out late."
The officer then asked, "Really?
Who's giving that lecture at this time of night?"
The man replied,
"That would be my wife."
