How about a joke thread?

warning: pun ahead

Henry Ford gets a phone call from an excited trio of Jewish brothers who invite him to come and see their new invention. "It will change cars forever" they state. Now Henry is well-known to dislike Jews, but he decides to investigate their claims anyway. He meets them at a warehouse in July, and they take him inside where a lone Model A sedan is sitting. One of the brothers invites Henry to join him inside the car, and only after a few minutes, the car becomes hot and uncomfortable. "Damn it man, show me your invention!" bellows Henry, so the guys starts the car and presses a button on the dashboard. Instantly, cool, dry air fills the interior, and a big smile comes over Henry's face. He realizes this is a great invention, so the talks begin. The brother starts off:
"We want $500,000 for the patent."
"No way" says Henry.
"Okay, how about $400,000 then?"
"Nope. Too expensive."
"Well, my final offer is $300,000, BUT, you have to include me and my brother's names on every car!"
Henry thinks for a moment, then agrees to the deal.

So, to this very day, you look on the dash of any Ford vehicle, and you'll see the names "HI, MAX and NORM.

HISTORY LESSON. In 1923, who was:

1. President of the largest steel company?
2. President of the largest gas company?
3. President of the New York Stock Exchange?
4. Greatest wheat speculator?
5. President of the Bank of International Settlement?
6. Great Bear of Wall Street?

These men were considered some of the worlds most successful of their day.

Now, 80 years later, the history book asks us, if we know what
ultimately became of them.

The answers:

1. The president of the largest steel company, Charles Schwab, died a pauper.

2. The president of the largest gas company, Edward Dopson, went insane.

3. The president of the NYSE, Richard Whitney, was released from prison to die at home.

4. The greatest wheat speculator, Arthur Cooger, died abroad, penniless.

5. The president of the Bank of International Settlement, shot himself.

6. The Great Bear of Wall Street, Cosabee Livermore, also committed suicide.

However, in that same year, 1923, the PGA Champion and the winner of the most important golf tournament, the US Open, was Gene Sarazen.

What became of him?

He played golf until he was 92, died in 1999 at the age of 95.

He was financially secure at the time of his death.

The moral:

Screw work. Play golf.

A 10-year old kid with a speech impediment went trick-or-treating and dressed up as a pirate. He went up to the house of an elderly neighbor woman and rang the bell. The woman took one look at him and said, "ohhh, you look sooo cute - you're a pirate! But where are your bucaneers?" she laughed. The kid got pissed and replied, "they're on the sides of my buckin' head!!!".

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher
said it was physically impossible for a
whale to swallow a human because even though it was
a very large mammal its throat was very small.
The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale.
Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could
not swallow a human; it was physically impossible.
The little girl said, "When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah".
The teacher asked, " What if Jonah went to hell?"
The little girl replied, "Then you ask him".

Two Women at the Pearly Gates

Two women are new arrivals at the pearly gates and
are comparing stories on how they died.

1st woman: I froze to death.

2nd woman: How horrible!

1st woman: It wasn't so bad. After I quit shaking
from the cold, I began to get warm and sleepy, and
finally died a peaceful death. What about you?

2nd woman: I died of a massive heart attack. I
suspected that my husband was cheating, so I came
home early to catch him in the act. But instead, I found him
all by himself in the den watching TV.

1st woman: So what happened?

2nd woman: I was so sure there was another woman
there somewhere that I started running all over the
house looking.
I ran up into the attic and searched, and down into
the basement. Then I went through every closet and
checked under all the beds. I kept this up until I
had looked everywhere, and finally I became so
exhausted that I just keeled over with a heart
attack and died!

1st woman: Too bad you didn't look in the freezer.
We'd both still be alive

This is a very old joke & one if only two I can ever remember.
Three women were discussing past husbands & how many times they had been married. They asked one of the ladies how many times she had been married and what her husbands had done. She said she had been married three times, first to a doctor, next to a lawyer and last to a farmer. The other women said that was quite an impressive variety and asked which one she liked best. Without hesitation she said by far she liked the farmer best. The other two women seemed surprised & asked why the farmer was the best. The lady explained that the doctor only examined it, and the lawyer just talked about it, BUT THAT FARMER HAD PLOWED RIGHT INTO IT!

The Miracle of Toilet Paper

Fresh from the shower, a woman stands in front of the mirror, complaining to her husband that her breasts are too small. Instead of characteristically telling her it's not so, he uncharacteristically comes up with a suggestion:

"If you want your breasts to grow, then every day take a piece of toilet paper and rub it between your breasts for a few seconds. Willing to try anything, she fetches a piece of toilet paper and stand in front of the mirror, rubbing it between her breasts.

"How long will this take?" she asks.

They will grow larger over a period of years," he replies.

She stops. "Do you really think rubbing a piece of toilet paper between my breasts every day will make my breasts larger over the years?"

Without missing a beat he says, "Worked for your butt, didn't it?"


He's still alive, and with a great deal of therapy, he may even walk again.

Stupid, stupid man.

Three men are going to a business conference in Switzerland, a Mechanical Engineer, a Software Engineer, and a Manager. On the way down one of the steep winding Alpine hills on the way to the conference, the vehicle's brakes fail completely, sending the hapless businessmen careening down the switchbacks at breakneck speed. The Mechanical Engineer, driving, is finally able to bring the vehicle to a smoking halt at the end of a long trail of debris and screaming car-mates.

"Well," the Manager asserts, after regaining his calm, "What we need to do is establish a Mission Statement, form a committee to make a series of goals, devise a Plan of Action and Milestones document, then go to the conference."

"Ha!" laughs the Mechanical Engineer. "That's never worked before! The solution is obvious -- I have my Swiss Army knife and some chewing gum. I'll just repair the brakes, and we'll be back on our way."

The Software Engineer, deep in thought the whole time, finally steps in. "Gentlemen, your answers are both clearly incorrect. First thing we need to do is push the car back to the top of the hill and see if it happens again."

How do we know that the toothbrush was invented in the south?

If it wasn't it would have been called a teethbrush.

A farmer buys several pigs, hoping to breed them for ham, bacon, etc...After several weeks, he notices that none of the pigs are getting pregnant and calls a vet for help.
The vet tells the farmer that he should try artificial insemination.

The farmer doesn't have the slightest idea what this means but, not wanting to display his ignorance, he only asks the vet how he will know when the pigs are pregnant.
The vet tells him that they will stop standing around and will lay down and wallow in the mud when they are pregnant.

The farmer hangs up and gives this some thought. He comes to the conclusion that artificial insemination means that he has to impregnate the pigs. So, he loads the pigs into his truck drives them out into the woods, has sex with them all, brings them back and goes to bed.

Next morning, he wakes and looks out at the pigs. Seeing that they are all still standing around, he concludes that the first try didn't take, and loads them in the truck again. He drives them out to the woods, bangs each pig twice for good measure, brings them back and goes to bed.

Next morning, he wakes to find the pigs still just standing around. One more try, he tells himself, and proceeds to load them up and drive them out to the woods. He spends all day shagging the pigs, and upon returning home, fall into the bed.

The next morning, he cannot even raise himself from the bed to look at the pigs. He asks his wife to look out and tell him if the pigs are laying in the mud "No, "she says, "they're all in the truck and one of them is honking the horn

A blonde female police officer pulls over a blonde gal in a convertible
sports car for speeding. She walks up to the car and asks the blond for
her driver's license.
The blonde convertible driver searches through her purse in vain. Finally
she asks, "What does it look like?" The blonde police officer tells her,
"It's that thing with your picture on it."

The blonde driver searches for a few more seconds, pulls out her compact,
opens it and sure enough sees herself. She hands the compact to the blonde
cop. After a few seconds looking at the compact, the blonde cop rolls her
eyes, hands the compact back to the blonde convertible driver and says,
"If you would have told me you were a police officer when I first pulled
you over we could have avoided this whole thing."

An Italian walks into a bank in New York City and
asks for the loan
officer.
He tells the loan officer that he is going to
Italy on business for
two weeks and needs to borrow $5,000..

The bank officer tells him that the bank will
need some form of
security for the loan, so the Italian hands over
the keys to a new
Ferrari.. The car is parked on the street in
front of the bank. The
Italian produces the title and everything checks
out. The loan officer

agrees to accept the car as collateral for the
loan.

The bank's president and its officers all enjoy
a good laugh at the
Italian for using a $250,000 Ferrari as
collateral against a $5,000
loan.
An employee of the bank then drives the Ferrari
into the bank's
underground garage and parks it there.

Two weeks later, the Italian returns, repays the
$5,000 and the
interest, which comes to $15.41.

The loan officer says, "Sir, 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
multi- millionaire. What puzzles us is, why
would you bother to borrow

$5,000?"

The Italian replies: "Where else in New York
City can I park my car
for two weeks for only $15.41 and expect it to
be there when I
return?"
