On Mother's Day there are more telephone calls placed than on any other day
of the year.
On Father's Day there are more *collect* phone calls made than on any other

Yesterday I came back to my office from Court. There was a new
secretary (a very attractive blonde) in the office down the hall from me.
She flagged me down and asked for help. "My floppy drive won't work, can
you help me ?" she asked.
I told her I'd take a look and proceeded over to her machine, where I
found shredded up clear plastic Baggie-like stuff hanging out of her 3.5"
floppy drive. While I spent the next 20 minutes getting out her disk and
digging out the plastic, I noticed two guys, John and Dave, in the hall
trying awfully hard to keep straight faces. Suspecting some mischief, I
asked her how the plastic got into the drive.
"Oh, you mean the condom!", she said.
"Condom???", I asked.
"Yes, John & Dave over there told me to always put a condom on my disk
before inserting it, to prevent catching viruses."
By this point, John & Dave were roaring, and it was all I could do to
keep from joining them. The "condom" turned out to be a standard 3.5"
plastic sleeve. I delicately explained to her that a practical joke had
been played, and she shouldn't do that anymore, when she asked (as serious
as one could be):
"Does that mean I don't have to stroke it ten times or blow on it
An Alaskan woodpecker and a Texas woodpecker were in Alaska,
arguing about which state's trees were the toughest to peck. The Alaskan
woodpecker said that they had a tree that no woodpecker could peck. The
Texas woodpecker challenged him and pecked a hole in the tree with no
problem. The Alaskan woodpecker was in awe. The Texas woodpecker next
challenged the Alaskan woodpecker to peck a tree in Texas, that no
woodpecker there had been able to peck successfully. The Alaskan
woodpecker expressed confidence that he could do it. When they flew to
Texas, the Alaskan woodpecker successfully pecked the tree. The two
woodpeckers couldn't figure out why they were each able to peck the tree
in the other's state, while neither one was able to peck the tree in
their own state.
After thinking for some time they both came to the same conclusion
" Your pecker is always harder when you're away from home".
When a man died, his wife put the usual death notice in the paper, but
added that he died of gonorrhea.
No sooner were the papers delivered than a good friend of the family
phoned and complained bitterly, "You know very well that he died of
diarrhea, not gonorrhea."
Replied the widow, "I nursed him night and day so of course I knew he
died of diarrhea. But I thought it would be better for posterity to
remember him as a great lover rather than the big shit he always was."
Once upon a time there lived a woman who had a maddening passion for
baked beans. She loved them but unfortunately they had always had a very
embarrassing and somewhat lively reaction to her. Then one day she met a
guy and fell in love. When it became apparent that they would marry she
thought to herself, "He is such a sweet and gentle man, he would never
go for this carrying on." So, she made the supreme sacrifice and gave up
Some months later her car broke down on the way home from work. Since
she lived in the country she called her husband and told him that she
would be late because she had to walk home. On her way she passed a
small diner and the aroma of the baked beans was more than she could
Since she still had miles to walk, she figured that she would walk off
any ill effects by the time she reached home. So, she stopped at the
diner and before she knew it, she had consumed three large orders of
baked beans. All the way home she putt-putted. And upon arriving home
she felt reasonably sure she could control it.
Her husband seemed excited to see her and exclaimed delightedly,
"Darling, I have a surprise for dinner tonight." He then blindfolded her
and led her to her chair at the table. She seated herself and just as he
was about to remove the blindfold from his wife, the telephone rang. He
made her promise not to touch the blindfold until he returned. He then
went to answer the phone.
The baked beans she had consumed were still affecting her and the
pressure was becoming almost unbearable, so while her husband was out of
the room she seized the opportunity, shifted her weight to one leg and
let it go. It was not only loud, but it smelled like a fertilizer truck
running over a skunk in front of a pulpwood mill. She took her napkin
and fanned the air around her vigorously. Then, she shifted to the other
cheek and ripped three more, which reminded her of cabbage cooking.
Keeping her ears tuned to the conversation in the other room, she went
on like this for another ten minutes.
When the phone farewells signaled the end of her freedom, she fanned the
air a few more times with her napkin, placed it on her lap and folded
her hands upon it, smiling contentedly to herself. She was the picture
of innocence when her husband returned.
Apologizing for taking so long, he asked her if she peeked, and she
assured him that she had not. At this point, he removed the blindfold,
and she was surprised!!!
There were twelve dinner guests seated around the table to wish her a
