When my husband finally gave in and
began to clean out his dresser drawers,
he discovered a bunch of socks that
didn't match. As I looked at them, I
noted that most of them had holes in
them. "Heaven's sakes, man!" I exclaimed.
"How long have you had these things?"
"Since before we were married," he
admitted. "I guess you could say that I
had a lot of premarital socks!"

Morris, an 82 year-old man, went to the
doctor to get a physical. A few days later,
the doctor saw Morris walking down the
street with a gorgeous young woman on
his arm. A couple of days later, the doctor
spoke to Morris and said, "You're really
doing great, aren't you?" Morris replied,
"Just doing what you said, Doc: 'Get a
hot mamma and be cheerful.'" The doctor
said, "I didn't say that. I said, 'You've got
a heart murmur; be careful.'"

An Englishman, an Irishman, a Welshman,
and a Scotsman were captured while
fighting in a far-off foreign land, and the
leader of the captors said: "We're going
to line you up in front of a firing squad
and shoot you all in turn. But first, you
each can make a final wish." The Scotsman
says: "I'd like to hear The Flower of Scotland
just one more time to remind me of the auld
country, played on bagpipes in the style of
the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards." The
Irishman says: "I'd like to hear Danny Boy
just one more time to remind me of the auld
country, sung in the style of Daniel O'Donnell,
with Riverdance dancers skipping gaily to the
tune." The Welshman says: "I'd like to hear
Men Of Harlech just one more time to
remind me of the auld country, sung as if by
 the Aberavon Male Voice Choir." The
Englishman says: "I'd like to be shot first."

THE DRUNK
He grabbed me by my slender neck
I couldn't yell or scream.
He took me to his dingy room
Where we could not be seen.
He stripped me of my flimsy wrap,
And gazed upon my form.
I was wet and cold and damp,
And he was nice and warm.
His feverish lips he pressed to mine,
I gave him every drop.
He drained me of my very self,
And I couldn't make him stop.
He made me what I am today,
That's why you find me here ...
A broken bottle, tossed away,
That once was full of beer.

My wife and I were sitting at a table at my
high school reunion, and I kept staring at
a drunken lady swigging her drink as she
sat alone at a nearby table. My wife asked,
"Do you know her?" "Yes," I sighed, "She's
my old girlfriend. I understand she took to
drinking right after we split up those many
years ago, and I hear she hasn't been sober
since." "My God!" said my wife, "Who
would think a person could go on
celebrating that long?"

According to a news report, a certain girl's
private school in Surrey was recently faced
with a unique problem. A number of 12-
year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick
and would put it on in the toilets. 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
toilet block and met them there with the
janitor. She explained that all these lip prints
were causing a major problem for the
person who had to clean the mirrors every
night. To demonstrate how difficult it had
been to clean the mirrors, she asked the
janitor to show the girls how much effort
was required. He took out a long-handled
squeegee, dipped it in the nearest toilet
bowl, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since
then, there have been no lip prints on the
mirror.
There are teachers.... . . . .

Jimmy: 'Hey, Mike! How's your new pet
fish doing? You told me he was really
something special.' Mike: 'To tell the truth,
I'm really disappointed in him. The guy who
sold him to me said I could teach him to
sing like a bird.' Jimmy: 'What? Let me get
this straight... You bought a fish because
you thought you could teach him to sing like
a bird?' Mike: 'Well, yeah. After all, you
know, he's a parrot fish.' Jimmy: 'Now listen,
Mike, while you might be able to teach a
parrot to sing, you're never going to get
anywhere with a parrot fish.' Mike: 'That's
what you think! It just so happens this fish
CAN sing. The thing is, he's terribly off-key
and it's driving me crazy. Do you know how
hard it is to tuna fish?'

HEALTH
Preventing Deep Vein Thrombosis -
Always drink plenty of water to avoid
dehydration. Do not drink alcohol before
or during the flight, as this can compound
dehydration. Try and keep your thighs
clear of the edge of your seat. Use foot
rests as far as possible. Take a brisk walk
for half an hour before the flight. Regularly
go for a short walk to the restroom to keep
your legs moving during the flight. Try a
few simple exercises to keep your legs
moving, by rotating your ankles, pointing
your heel and toe alternately and lifting
your knees whilst seated every half hour
for a short period. Try and tense your
leg muscles as regularly as possible
throughout the flight. Wear elastic flight
socks (elastic compression stockings)
especially designed to reduce the risk of
DVT. These are readily available at most
pharmacies. The day before the flight,
take a low dose of aspirin (100mg -
150mg), during the flight, and for three
days following the flight.

It has been scientifically proven that if we
drink 1 litre of water each day, at the end
of the year we would have absorbed more
than 1 kilo of E. Coli. (bacteria found in
faeces). In other words, we are consuming
1 kilo of Poo. However, we do not run
that risk when drinking wine, beer (or other
spirits) because alcohol has to go through a
purification process of boiling, filtering and
fermenting.
WATER = Poo
WINE = HEALTH
Free yourself of Poo, drink WINE!
It is better to drink wine and talk shit than
to drink water and be full of shit.

A woman and a baby were in the doctor's
examining room, waiting for the doctor to
come in for the baby's first exam. The
doctor arrived, and examined the baby,
checked his weight, and being a little
concerned, asked if the baby was breast-
fed or bottle-fed?" "Breast-fed," she replied.
"Well, strip down to your waist," the doctor
ordered. She did. He pinched her nipples,
pressed, kneaded, and rubbed both breasts
for a while in a very professional and
detailed examination. Motioning to her to
get dressed, the doctor said, "No wonder
this baby is underweight. You don't have
any milk." "I know," she said,"I'm his
Grandma, but I'm glad I came."

For his birthday Little Matt asked for a 10-
speed bicycle. His father said, "Son, we'd
give you one, but the mortgage on this house
is £80,000 and your mother just lost her job.
There's no way we can afford it." The next
day the father saw Little Matt heading out
the front door with a suitcase. So he asked,
"Son, where are you going?" Little Matt
told him, "I was walking past your room
last night and I heard you tell mum you were
pulling out. Then I heard her tell you to wait
because she was coming too. And I'll be
damned if I'm staying here by myself with
an £80,000 mortgage and no flipping bike!"

CHARLES & CAMILLA'S WEDDING NIGHT
Camilla had bought new shoes for her wedding
which became increasingly tighter and tighter as
the day went on. That night, when the festivities
were finally over and they retired to their room,
she flopped on the bed and said, "Charles, darling,
please remove my shoes. My feet are killing me."
Her ever-obedient Prince of Wales attacked her
right shoe with vigour but it would not budge.
"Harder!" yelled Camilla. "Harder?" Charles
yelled back, "I'm trying, darling, but it's just so
bloody tight!" "Come on. Give it all you've got!"
she cried. Finally, when it released, Charles let
out a big groan and Camilla exclaimed, "There,
oh God, that feels so good!" In their bedroom
next door, the Queen said to Prince Phillip, "See?
I told you with a face like that, she was still a virgin."
Meanwhile, as Charles tried to remove her left
shoe, he cried, "Oh God, darling, this one's even
tighter!" At which Prince Phillip said to the Queen,
"That's my boy! Once a Navy man, always a
Navy man."

A middle aged guy, tired of mowing the lawn,
finally breaks down and hires a neighbourhood
kid named Bubba to do the job for him. One
weekend, the husband is in the bathroom shaving,
when Bubba comes in after having mowed the
lawn and proceeds to pee in the toilet. Curiosity
got the better of the husband and he just had to
look. Bubba had the largest penis he had ever
seen! The man asked Bubba, "I don't mean to
be too personal, but how did your dick get that
big? I couldn't help but notice.." "Bubba laughed
and said, "It's simple, every night before I go to
bed, I bang it on the bedpost three times." The
husband was excited at the simplicity of this
technique and could hardly wait to try it himself.
Before he climbed into bed that night, he
whipped it out and banged it on the bedpost
three times. He was just climbing into bed with
newfound confidence when his wife sat up, half-
asleep and rubbing her eyes, and said,
"Is that you, Bubba?"
