Thought we could all use a little smile in our lives.. the joke thread is getting really lonnnggggg....

Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their days interesting.

Well for example, the other day I went into town and went into a shop. I was only in there for about 5 minutes. When I came out there was a cop writing out a parking ticket. I went up to him and said, "Come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?"

He ignored me and continued writing the ticket.

I called him a Nazi bastard. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tires.

So I called him a crap head. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing a third ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes.

The more I abused him, the more tickets he wrote.

Personally, I didn't care.

I came into town by bus.

I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired.

It's important at my age.<FONT face=Arial color=black size=2><SPAN style="FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: black; FONT-FAMILY: Arial">

MONDAY: It's fun to cook for Tom. Today I made angel

food cake. The recipe said beat 12 eggs separately. The
neighbors were nice enough to loan me some extra bowls.

TUESDAY: Tom wanted fruit salad for supper.
The recipe said serve without dressing. So I didn't dress.
What a surprise when Tom brought a friend home for


WEDNESDAY: A good day for rice. The recipe said wash
thoroughly before steaming the rice. It seemed kind of
silly but I took a bath anyway. I can't say it improved
the rice any.

THURSDAY: Today Tom asked for salad again. I tried a

new recipe. It said prepare ingredients, lay on a bed of
lettuce one hour before serving. Tom asked me why I

was rolling around in the garden.

FRIDAY: I found an easy recipe for cookies.
It said put the ingredients in a bowl and beat it.
There must have been something wrong with this recipe.
When I got back, everything was the same as when I left.

SATURDAY: Tom did the shopping today and brought

home a chicken. He asked me to dress it for Sunday

(oh boy).For some reason Tom keeps counting to ten.

SUNDAY: Tom's folks came to dinner. I wanted to serve
roast but all I had was hamburger. Suddenly I had a flash

of genius. I put the hamburger in the oven and set the

controls for roast. It still came out hamburger,much to

my disappointment.

GOOD NIGHT DEAR DIARY. This has been a very exciting

week. I am eager for tomorrow to come so I can try out a

new recipe on Tom. If I can talk Tom into buying a bigger
oven, I would like to surprise him with chocolate moose.

St Peter looked up and over 1000 folks from New Orleans were converging on the Pearly Gates.

Never having had more than one or two persons a day from New Orleans before, he ran to God and asked him what to do.

God told him, "Don't worry, St Peter. There's been a terrible flood in New Orleans. That's the reason for the large number of New Orleanians showing up at once."

St Peter ran back to the Pearly Gates and then ran right back to God yelling, "They're gone, they're gone!"

God said calmly, "St Peter, those 1000 people from New Orleans could not be gone that quickly."

St Peter said, "No! No! the Pearly Gates! They're gone!"

You may not know this but many non-living things have a gender.

1) Ziploc Bags are Male, because they hold everything in, but you can
see right through them.

2) Copiers are Female, because once turned off; it takes a while to
warm them up again. It's an effective reproductive device if the right
buttons are pushed! , but can wreak havoc if the wrong buttons are pushed.

3) A Tire is Male, because it goes bald and it's often over-inflated.

4) A Hot Air Balloon is Male, because, to get it to go anywhere, you
have to light a fire under it, and of course, there's the hot air part.

5) Sponges are Female, because they're soft, squeezable and retain

6) A Web Page is Female, because it's always getting hit on.

7) A Subway is Male, because it uses the same old lines to pick people

9) A Hammer is Male, because it hasn't changed much over the last 5,000
years, but it's handy to have around.

10) A Remote Control is Female. Ha! You thought it'd be male, didn't

But consider this - it gives a man pleasure, he'd be lost without it,
and while he doesn't always know the right buttons to push, he keeps
