The first Blonde GUY joke ... and well worth the wait!
An Irishman, a Mexican and a blonde guy were doing construction work on scaffolding on the 20 Th. floor of a building.
They were eating lunch and the Irishman said, "Corned beef and cabbage!
If I get corned beef and cabbage one more time for lunch I'm going to jumpoff this Building."
The Mexican opened his lunch box and exclaimed, "Burritos again! If I get burritos one more time I'm going to jump off, too."
The blond opened his lunch and said, "Bologna again. If I get abologna sandwich one more time, I'm jumping too."
The next day the Irishman opened his lunch box, saw corned beef and cabbage and jumped to his death.
The Mexican opened his lunch, saw a burrito and jumped too.
The blonde guy opened his lunch, saw the bologna and jumped to his death as well.
At the funeral the Irishman's wife was weeping. She said, "If I'd known
howreally tired he was of corned beef and cabbage, I never would have given it to him again!"
The Mexican's wife also wept and said, I could have given him tacos orenchiladas! I didn't realize he hated burritos so much."
Everyone turned and stared at the blonde's wife.
"Hey, don't look at me," she said, "He makes his own lunch."
Too Many Blondes
A BLIND MAN ENTERS A WOMAN’S BAR BY MISTAKE. HE FINDS HIS WAY TO A BAR STOOL AND ORDERS A DRINK. AFTER SITTING THERE FOR A WHILE, HE YELLS TO THE BARTENDER. “HEY, YOU WANNA HEAR A BLONDE JOKE?”

Everything checks out, and the bank agrees to accept the car as collateral for the loan. An employee drives the Rolls into the bank's underground garage and parks it there.
Two weeks later, the Blonde returns, repays the $5,000 and the interest, which comes to $15.41.
The loan officer says, "We are very happy to have had your business, and this transaction has worked out very nicely, but we are a little puzzled. While you were away, we checked you out and found that you are a multimillionaire. What puzzles us is why would you bother to borrow $5,000?"

The blonde was trying to be friendly, so she smiled her biggest smile and said as sweetly as possibly "T.G.I.F." another time. The man smiled back to her and once again replied with a quizzical expression, "S.H.I.T."
The blonde finally decided to explain things, and this time she said,"T.G.I.F.
means Thank Goodness It's Friday. Get it?"

remembering things, so they decided to go to their doctor to get checked out to
make sure nothing was wrong with them. When they arrived at the doctors office,

checking the couple, the doctor told them that they were physically okay but
might want to start writing things down and make notes to help them remember
things. The couple thanked the doctor and left.

She then asked him, "Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?"
He said, "No, I can remember that."
She then said, "Well I would also like some strawberries on top. You had better write that down because I know you'll forget that."
He said, "I can remember that...you want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries."
She replied, "Well I also would like whipped cream on top. I know you will forget that so you better write it down."
With irritation in his voice, he said, "I don't need to write that down!
I can remember that." He then fumes into the kitchen.
After about 20 minutes he returned from the kitchen and handed her a plate of bacon and eggs. She stared at the plate for a moment and said angrily: "I TOLD you to write it down! You forgot my toast!"

asleep but the wife was in a romantic mood and wanted to talk. She said:

across, held her hand for a second and tried to get back to sleep. A few
moments later she said: "Then you used to kiss me."

settled down to sleep. Thirty seconds later she said: "Then you used to bite my neck."
Angrily, he threw back the bed clothes and got out of bed.

Two elderly ladies had been friends for many decades. Over the years, they had shared all kinds of activities and adventures. Lately, their activities had been limited to meeting a few times a week to play cards. One day, they were playing cards when one looked at the other and said, "Now don't get mad at me . I know we've been friends for a long
time .... but I just can't think of your name! I've thought and thought, but I can't remember it. Please tell me what your name is."

Two elderly women were out driving in a large car - both could barely see over the dashboard. As they were cruising along, they came to an
intersection. The stoplight was red, but they just went on through. The woman in the passenger seat thought to herself "I must be losing it. I
could have sworn we just went through a red light."
After a few more minutes, they came to another intersection and the light was red again. Again, they went right through. The woman in the
passenger seat was almost sure that the light had been red but was really concerned that she was losing it. She was getting nervous.
At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was red and they went on through. So, she turned to the other woman and said, "Mildred, did you know that we just ran through three red lights in a row? You could have killed us both!"
Mildred turned to her and said, "Crap, am I driving?"

An elderly woman walked into a doctor's office and told the doctor that she and her husband had not been intimate in years.
She said that her husband seemed to have a lack of desire. After listening to the woman for a while, the doctor said, "I have just the thing. Have your husband take two of these pills right before dinner...."
The next morning, the woman stormed into the doctor's office and exclaimed, "You have to change my husband's prescription!!
It is much too strong!! I gave him the pills before dinner, just like you told me, and halfway through dinner they took effect. He got a wild look in his eyes, then pulled the tablecloth off the table; breaking all of the dishes!! Then he threw me onto the table, and we made love right there!!
"I feel awful," said the doctor. "Let me at least pay for all of the broken dishes."
"Oh, don't worry about that," replied the woman, "we just won't eat at
that restaurant any more!!"

The Difference Between Men & Women - A Modern Fable
Let's say a guy named Roger is attracted to a woman named Elaine. He asks her out to a movie; she accepts; they have a pretty good time. A few nights later he asks her out to dinner, and again they enjoy themselves. They continue to see each other regularly, and after a while neither one of them is seeing anybody else. And then, one evening when they're driving home, a thought occurs to Elaine, and, without really thinking, she says it aloud: "Do you realize that, as of tonight, we've been seeing each other for exactly six months?" And then there is silence in the car.
To Elaine, it seems like a very loud silence. She thinks to herself: Geez, I wonder if it bothers him that I said that. Maybe he's been feeling confined by our relationship; maybe he thinks I'm trying to push him into some kind of obligation that he doesn't want, or isn't sure of.
And Roger is thinking: Gosh. Six months.
And Elaine is thinking: But, hey, I'm not so sure I want this kind of relationship, either. Sometimes I wish I had a little more space, so I'd have time to think about whether I really want us to keep going the way we are, moving steadily toward... I mean, where are we going? Are we just going to keep seeing each other at this level of intimacy? Are we heading toward marriage? Toward children? Toward a lifetime together? Am I ready for that level of commitment? Do I really even know this person?
And Roger is thinking: ...so that means it was...let's see...February when we started going out, which was right after I had the car at the dealer's, which means... lemme check the odometer... Whoa! I am way overdue for an oil change here.
And Elaine is thinking: He's upset. I can see it on his face. Maybe I'm reading this completely wrong. Maybe he wants more from our relationship, more intimacy, more commitment; maybe he has sensed - even before I sensed it - that I was feeling some reservations. Yes, I bet that's it. That's why he's so reluctant to say anything about his own feelings. He's afraid of being rejected.
And Roger is thinking: And I'm gonna have them look at the transmission again. I don't
care what those morons say, it's still not shifting right. And they better not try
to blame it on the cold weather this time. What cold weather? It's 87 degrees out, and
this thing is shifting like a garbage truck, and I paid those incompetent thieves $600.
And Elaine is thinking: He's angry. And I don't blame him. I'd be angry, too. I feel so guilty, putting him through this, but I can't help the way I feel. I'm just not sure.
And Roger is thinking: They'll probably say it's only a 90-day warranty... scumballs.
And Elaine is thinking: Maybe I'm just too idealistic, waiting for a knight to come riding up on his white horse, when I'm sitting right next to a perfectly good person, a person I enjoy being with, a person I truly do care about, a person who seems to truly care about me. A person who is in pain because of my self-centered, schoolgirl romantic fantasy.
And Roger is thinking: Warranty? They want a warranty? I'll give them a warranty. I'll take their warranty and................ "Roger," Elaine says aloud. "What?" says Roger, startled.
"Please don't torture yourself like this," she says, her eyes beginning to brim with tears. "Maybe I should never have...Oh God, I feel so..." (She breaks down, sobbing.)
"What?" says Roger. "I'm such a fool," Elaine sobs. "I mean, I know there's no knight. I really know that. It's silly. There's no knight, and there's no horse."
"There's no horse?" says Roger. "You think I'm a fool, don't you?" Elaine says.
"No!" says Roger, glad to finally know the correct answer.
"It's just that... it's that I... I need some...(There is a 15-second pause while Roger, thinking as fast as he can, tries to come up with a safe response. Finally he comes up with one that he thinks might work.) "Yes," he says. (Elaine, deeply moved, touches his hand.)
"Oh, Roger, do you really feel that way?" she says. "What way?" says Roger.
"That way about time," says Elaine.
"Oh," says Roger. "Yes." (Elaine turns to face him and gazes deeply into his eyes, causing him to become very nervous about what she might say next, especially if it involves a horse. At last she speaks.)
"Thank you, Roger," she says.
"Thank you," says Roger. Then he takes her home, and she lies on her bed, a conflicted, tortured soul, and weeps until dawn, whereas when Roger gets back to his place, he opens a bag of Doritos, turns on the TV, and immediately becomes deeply involved in a rerun of a tennis match between two Czechoslovakians he never heard of. A tiny voice in the far recesses of his mind tells him that something major was going on back there in the car, but he is pretty sure there is no way he would ever understand what, and so he figures it's better if he doesn't think about it.
The next day Elaine will call her closest friend, or perhaps two of them, and they will talk about this situation for six straight hours. In painstaking detail, they will analyze everything she said and everything he said, going over it time and time again, exploring every word, expression, and gesture for nuances of meaning, considering every possible ramification. They will continue to discuss this subject, off and on, for weeks, maybe months, never reaching any definite conclusions, but never getting bored with it, either.
Meanwhile, Roger, while playing racquetball one day with a mutual friend of his and Elaine's, will pause just before serving, frown, and say: "Norm, did Elaine ever own a horse?"And that's the difference between men and women.
This is the word a woman uses at the end of any argument that they feel
they are right about but need to shut you up. NEVER use "Fine" to
describe how a woman looks. This will cause you to have one of those arguments.
This is half an hour. It is the equivalent to the five minutes that your
baseball game is going to last before you take out the rubbish, so they
feel this is an even trade.
This means something and you should be on your toes. "Nothing" is
usually used to describe the feeling a woman has of wanting to turn you inside
out, upside down, backwards, or all three. "Nothing" usually signifies
an argument that will last "Five Minutes" and end with the word "Fine".
"Go Ahead" (with raised eyebrows)
This is a dare. One that will result in a woman getting upset over
"Nothing" and will end with the word "Fine".
"Go Ahead" (normal eyebrows)
This means "I give up" or "Do what you want because I don't care". You
will get a raised eyebrow "Go Ahead" in just a few minutes, followed by
"Nothing" and "Fine" and she will talk to you in about "Five Minutes"
when she cools off.
This is not actually a word, but is still often very much a verbal
statement, one that is very misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means
she thinks you are an idiot at that moment and wonders why she is
wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing".
Again, not a word, but a verbal statement. "Soft Sighs" are one of the
few things that some men actually understand. She is content. Your best bet
is to not move or breathe and she will stay content.
This word followed by any statement is trouble. Example; "Oh, let me get
that". Or, "Oh, I talked to him about what you were doing last night".
If she says "Oh" before a statement, RUN (do not walk) to the nearest exit.
She will tell you that she is "Fine" when she is done tossing your
clothes out the window, but do not expect her to talk to you for at
least 2 days. "Oh" as the lead to a sentence usually signifies that you
are caught in a lie. Do not try to lie more to get out of it, or you
will get raised eyebrows, "Go ahead", followed by an onslaught of words
you've never heard her say before.
This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can say to a
man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before
paying you retributions for whatever it is that you have done. "That's Okay" is
often used with the word "Fine" and used in conjunction with a raised
eyebrow and "Go Ahead". At some point in the near future when she has plotted
and planned, you are going to be in some mighty big trouble.
This is not a statement, it is an offer. A woman is giving you the
chance to come up with whatever excuse or reason you have for doing whatever it
is that you have done. You have a fair chance to tell the truth, so be
careful and you shouldn't get a "That's Okay".
The woman is thanking you. Do not faint just say "you're welcome".
"Thanks A Lot!!"
This is very different to "Thanks". A woman will say, "Thanks A Lot!!"
when she is REALLY pissed off at you. It signifies that you have hurt
her in some callous way, and will be followed by the "Loud Sigh". Be careful
not toask what is wrong after the "Loud Sigh", as she will only tell you
When everything's coming your way, you're in the wrong lane.
Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy.
Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now.
Everyone has a photographic memory. Some don't have film.
Black holes are where God divided by zero.
All those who believe in psycho kinesis, raise my hand.
Early bird gets the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
Elementary, my dear...!Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal and a bottle of wine they lay down for the night, and went to 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."
"And what does that tell you?" 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?"
Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke. "Watson, you idiot. Some bastard has stolen our tent."

Origin of Pets
Adam and Eve said, "Lord, when we were in the garden, you walked with us every day. Now we do not see you any more. We are lonesome here, and it is difficult for us to remember how much you love us."And God said, "No problem! I will create a companion for you that will be with you forever and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will love me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are and will love you as I do, in spite of yourselves."
And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam and Eve. And it was a good animal. And God was pleased.
And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and Eve and he wagged his tail. And Adam said, "Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal." And God said, "No problem. Because I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG."
And dog lived with Adam and Eve and was a companion to them and loved them. And they were comforted. And God was pleased.
And dog was content and wagged his tail.After a while, it came to pass that an angel came to the Lord and said, "Lord, Adam and Eve have become filled with pride. They strut and preen like peacocks and they believe they are worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught them that they are loved, but perhaps too well."
And God said, "No problem! I will create for them a companion who will be with them forever and who will see them as they are. The companion will remind them of their limitations, so they will know that they are not always worthy of adoration."
And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam and Eve.
And cat would not obey them. And when Adam and Eve gazed into cat's eyes, they were reminded that they were not the supreme beings.
And Adam and Eve learned humility.
And they were greatly improved.
And God was pleased.
And Dog was happy.
And Cat didn't give a shit one way or the other.

I love my master;
Thus I perfume myself with this long-rotten squirrel.
I lie belly-up In the sunshine,
happier than you ever will be
Today I sniffed Many dog behinds-I celebrate
By kissing your face.
I sound the alarm! Paper boy-come to kill us all
Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!

Look! Look! Look! Look! Look!
I lift my leg and Whiz on each bush. Hello, Spot-
Sniff this and weep

My human is home!

I Hate my choke chain! Look, world, they strangle me!
Ack Ack Ack Ack Ack Ack!
Sleeping here, my chin on your foot-no greater bliss-well,
Maybe catching rats
Look in my eyes and deny it.
No human could Love you as much I do
The cat is not all Bad-she fills the litter box
With Tootsie Rolls
Dig under fence-why?
Because it's there. Because it's there. Because it's there.
I am your best friend, Now, always, and especially
When you are eating.
My owners' mood is Romantic-I lie near their feet.
I fart a big one.

A girl asks her boyfriend to come over Friday night and have dinner with her parents. This being a big event, the girl tells her boyfriend that after dinner, she would like to go out and "do it" for the first time.
Well, the boy is ecstatic, but he has never done it before, so he takes a trip to the pharmacist to get some protection. The pharmacist helps the boy for about an hour. He tells the boy everything there is to know about protection and doing it. At the register, the pharmacist asks the boy how many he'd like to buy; a 3-pack, a 10-pack, or a family pack. The boy insists on the family pack because he thinks he will be very busy, it being his first time and all.
That night, the boy shows up at the girl's parent's house and meets his girlfriend at the door. "Oh I'm so excited for you to meet my parents, come on in." The boy goes inside and is taken to the dinner table where the girl's parents are seated. The boy quickly offers to say grace and bows his head. A minute passes, and the boy still deep in prayer with his head down. Ten minutes pass and still no movement from the boy. Finally, after 20 minutes with his head down, the girlfriend leans over and whispers to her boyfriend, "I had no idea you were so religious." The boy turns and whispers back, "I had no idea your father was a pharmacist."

couldn't think, and refused to apologize when wrong.

When I asked why, I was told that she wouldn't stand for "perverts" (pedophilia?) working in her company. Finally, he showed me her copy of the memo, with her demand that I be fired and the word "pedagogical" circled in red. The HR manager was fairly reasonable, and once he looked the word up in his dictionary and made a copy of the definition to send back to her, he told me not to worry. He would take care of it. Two days later, a memo to the entire staff came out directing us that no words which could not be found in the local Sunday newspaper could be used in company memos. A month later, I resigned. In accordance with company policy, I created my resignation memo by pasting words together from the Sunday paper. (Taco Bell Corporation)
