An honest lawyer....

An Honest Lawyer
An investment counselor decided to go out on her own. She was shrewd and diligent, so business kept coming in, and pretty soon she realized that she needed an in-house counsel. She began to interview young lawyers.

"As I'm sure you can understand," she started off with one of the first applicants, "in a business like this, our personal integrity must be beyond question." She leaned forward. "Mr. Peterson, are you an honest lawyer?"

"Honest?" replied the job prospect. "Let me tell you something about honest. Why, I'm so honest that my father lent me $15,000 for my education, and I paid back every penny the minute I tried my very first case."

"Impressive. And what sort of case was that?"

The lawyer squirmed in his seat and admitted, "He sued me for the money."

Angela Merkel arrives at Passport Control in Athens airport.

"Nationality?" asks the immigration officer.

"German," she replies.

"Occupation?

"No, just here for a few days."

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A man is seeking to join the Glasgow Police force.

The Sergeant doing the interview says:

"Your qualifications all look good,

but there is an attitude suitability test that you must take
before you can be accepted."

Then, sliding a pistol and a box of ammo across the desk, he
says:

"Take this pistol and go out and shoot six illegal
immigrants, six drug dealers, six extremists, and a rabbit"

The man being interviewed asks, "Why the rabbit?"

"Excellent" says the Sergeant. "When can you start?"

This is how women were expected to behave in the 1950's

Somehow, DW was not amused.

A guy in a bar notices a woman, always alone, who comes in on a fairly regular basis. After the second week, he made his move.

“No thank you,” she said politely. “This may sound rather odd in this day and age, but I’m keeping myself pure until I meet the man I love.”

“That must be rather difficult,” the man replied.

“Oh, I don’t mind too much,” she said. “But it has my husband pretty upset.”

your Dogs IQ

A psychologist is selling a video that teaches you how to test your dog's IQ.

Here's how it works: if you spend $12.99 for the video, your dog is smarter than you.

How important does a person have to be before they are considered assassinated instead of just murdered?

A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup out of the bottle. During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone. 'Mommy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now. She's hitting the bottle.

Did you hear about the dyslexic blues man? He went down to the crossroads and sold his soul to Santa.

A man and a woman were having a quiet, romantic dinner in a fine restaurant.

They were gazing lovingly at each other and holding hands.

A waitress, taking another order at a table a few steps away, suddenly noticed the man slowly sliding down his chair…then sliding a little more... until he was almost under the table.

The baffling thing was that the woman with him stared straight ahead and didn't seem to notice!

The waitress watched as the man slid all the way down his chair and out of sight underneath the table.

Still, the woman stared straight ahead.

The waitress, thinking this behavior a bit risqué and concerned that it might offend other diners, went over to the table and, tactfully, began by saying to the woman:

"Pardon me, ma'am. But I think your husband just slid under the table."

The woman calmly looked up at her and said:

"No, he didn't. He just walked in the door."

Just happened to look up something on Gary Larson, author of The Far Side. I enjoyed his cartoons for years.

Gee whizzz...and other stuff....

NASA's requirements for becoming an astronaut are stringent, but not overly daunting. Essentially, hopefuls must have a bachelor's degree in science, be physically fit, and stand between 58.5 and 76 inches tall. What NASA doesn't mention, however, are the intangibles. You can probably think of a few: coolness under pressure, a problem-solving mentality, and the ability to work in a team setting. But one trait you might not consider is a strong stomach. The following stories illustrate why that definitely can come in handy.

A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, 'Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit.' 'And why not, darling?' 'You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning.'

An elderly, but hardy cattleman from Texas
once told a young female neighbor that if she wanted to live a
long life, the secret was to sprinkle a pinch of gunpowder on her
oatmeal each morning. She did this religiously and lived to
the ripe old age of 103. She left behind 14 children, 30
grandchildren, 21 great-grandchildren, five
great-great-grandchildren and a 40 foot hole where the crematorium
used to be.

A Southern farmer went down to his orchard to pick some peaches, heard a ruckus over at his pond and found several coeds skinny dipping. After making his presence known, he told the girls to enjoy the pond, don't litter, etc. and he would be picking for a few more hours. He left, picked many bushels and returned with a basket hour later. The coeds were still there, he reminded them to clean up when they left, he was leaving, to enjoy the beautiful pond and the moment, as it was memorable for the rest of their lives.

He then dumped the bushel basket of peaches in the water and started to walk away. One of the girls hollered and asked why he dumped the peaches. He smiled and answered that once a week he comes down to the pond and fed his blemished peaches to the resident alligators.

A few minutes before a church service started, the congregation was sitting
and chatting, when all of a sudden, of all people, Satan appeared at the
front of the church.
The people started screaming and running for the front entrance, trampling
each other in a frantic effort to get away from the evil one. Soon the church
was empty except for one elderly gentleman who sat calmly in his pew
without moving, seemingly oblivious to the fact that God’s ultimate enemy
was in his presence.
Satan walked up to the man and said, “Do you know who I am?”
The man replied, “Yep, sure do.”
“Aren’t you afraid of me?” Satan asked.
“Nope, sure ain’t.” said the man.
“Don’t you realize I can kill you with one word?” said Satan.
“Don’t doubt it for a minute," returned the old man, in an even tone.
“Did you know I can cause you profound, horrifying agony for all
eternity?” persisted Satan.
“Yep,” was the calm reply.
“And you’re still not afraid of me?” asked Satan.
“Nope,” said the old man.
More than a little perturbed, Satan asked, “Well, why aren’t you afraid of
me?”
The man calmly replied, “Been married to your sister for 48 years.”
