How True-Employee Recruitment

One day while walking down the street a highly successful executive was tragically hit by a bus and he died. His soul arrived up in heaven where he was met at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter.

"Welcome to Heaven," said St. Peter. "Before you get settled in though, it seems we have a problem. You see, strangely enough, we've never once had an executive make it this far and we're not really sure what to do with you."

What is the Most Powerful Word?

(Got this from an ex-girlfriend who delights in finding off-beat stuff and sending it to me!)


Well, shit...

Shit may just be the most powerful word in the English language.

You can be shit faced, shit out of luck,or have shit for brains. With a little effort, you can get your shit together, find a place for your shit or decide to shit or get off the pot.

You can smoke shit, buy shit, sell shit, lose shit, find shit, forget shit, and tell others to eat shit and die.

Dr. Laura

For those not following the recent controversy that has to do with Laura Schlessinger...

she is a radio personality who dispenses advice to people who call in to her radio show. Recently she has become a convert to Judaism, and now she is Ba'al T'shuvah. Using religion and her "academic" background/experience, she made some statements about homosexuals that caused the Canadian anti-hate laws to censure her. Paramount Television Group is currently producing a "Dr. Laura" television show despite the controversy....

How now, Kemosabee?

A man boards an aeroplane and takes his seat. As he settles in, he glances up and sees a most beautiful woman boarding the plane. He soon realizes she is heading straight towards his seat. A wave of nervous anticipation washes over him.

Lo and behold, she takes the seat right beside his. Eager to strike up a conversation, he blurts out, "Business trip or vacation?".

"Nymphomaniac Convention in Chicago," she states.

Measuring Up

A couple had been married 15 years. One afternoon, they were working in the garden together. As the wife bent over pulling the weeds, the husband says, "Honey, you're getting fat. Your butt is as big as the gas grill."

The husband picks up a yardstick, to prove his point. He measures the grill, then he measures his wife's butt; "Yeah", he says, "just about the same size."

That evening they went to bed. The husband cuddled up to his wife saying, "How about a little lovemaking?"
