    Good morning everyone!


    I could not let this hiccup continue, so I came back to try and finish what I had started. What ever the problem was before, it was no longer there. So the triple update is complete. Thank you all for your patience.







    What do you get if you send the Godfather to law school?


    An offer you can't understand.                                                





    A game warden came upon a duck hunter who had     

    bagged 3 ducks and decided to "enforce the laws        


    He stopped the hunter, flashed his badge and said,     

    "Looks like you've had a pretty good day. Mind if I       

    inspect your kill?"                                                                

    The hunter shrugged and handed the ducks to the       


    The warden took one of the ducks, inserted his finger

    into the duck's rectum, pulled it out, sniffed it, and      

    said, "This here's a Washington state duck. Do you     

    have a Washington state hunting license?"                   

    The hunter pulled out his wallet and calmly showed   

    the warden a Washington state hunting license.         
      The warden took a second duck, inserted his finger in

    the bird's rectum, pulled it out, sniffed it, and said,    

    "This here's an Idaho duck. Do you have an Idaho      

    state hunting license?"                                                    

    The hunter, a bit put out, produced an Idaho state    

    hunting license.                                                               

    The warden took a third duck, conducted the same

    finger test, and said, "This here's an Oregon state   

       duck. Do you have an Oregon state hunting license?"

    Once again, only this time more aggravated, the     

    hunter produced the appropriate license.                 

    The warden, a little miffed at having struck out,     

    handed the ducks back to the hunter and said,       

      "You've got all of these licenses, just where the hell

    are you from?"                                                               

    The hunter dropped his pants, bent over, and said

    "You're so smart, YOU tell ME!"                                  





    We got lucky when we heard the old Piedmont Hotel

    in Atlanta was getting a face-lift and its beautiful     

    maple doors became available for sale as salvage   

    items. We bought several and had them installed    

    in our 19th-century home.                                             

    Showing a friend around the house, I pointed out,   

    "You know, these doors are from the Piedmont       


    He raised an eyebrow. "Most people just take the  






    This woman is about to board a bus, but when she     

    steps up, she realizes that her skirt is too tight, and   

    she can't lift her leg to board. So, she reaches around

    behind her and lowers her zipper a bit and tries          


    Skirt's still too tight, so she reaches behind her and   

    lowers her zipper some more, and tries again. She    

    still can't get on, so she reaches back and lowers the

    zipper a bit more. She tries to step up, and feels two

    hands on her butt push her up onto the bus. She       

    spins around and says, "Sir, I don't know you well      

    enough for you to do that!"                                              

     He says, "Lady, I sure don't know you well enough for

    you to lower my zipper three times."                             





    How do you make a pool table laugh?                      

    Put your hand down its pocket and tickle its balls!

      WTF fun fact #8416

      They force the tree into a form of dwarfism by cutting away part of its root system and repeatedly pruning back its trunk, branch, stem, and foliage. Many of them are also trained into unusual shapes using wires to hold the form as it grows. Fans of the Karate Kid will remember that Mr Miyagi had a collection of Bonsai.


      Bonsai is pronounced like the ‘Bon’ in Bon Voyage and ‘sigh’ like the verb.


      Banzai, which some people inexplicably confuse it with, is an exclamation or a cheer.

      I think that a Preying Mantis already has its arms on the butterfly.
