Now a few Jokes...


You're worth it! Sometimes we just need to be reminded! A well-known speaker started off his seminar by holding up a $20.00 bill.

In the room of 200, he asked,
'Who would like this $20 bill?' Hands started going up.
He said, 'I am going to give this $20 to one of you but first, let me do this.
He proceeded to crumple up the $20 dollar bill.
He then asked, 'Who still wants it?' Still the hands were up in the air.
Well, he replied,
'What if I do this?'
And he dropped it on the ground and started to grind it into the floor with his shoe.
He picked it up, now crumpled and dirty.
'Now, who still wants it?' Still the hands went into the air.

'My friends, we have all learned a very valuable lesson.

No matter what I did to the money, you still wanted it because it did not decrease in value.
It was still worth $20.
Many times in our lives, we are dropped, crumpled, and ground into the dirt by the decisions we make and the circumstances that come our way.
We feel as though we are worthless.
But no matter what has happened or what will happen, you will never lose your value.
Dirty or clean, crumpled or finely creased, you are still priceless to those who DO LOVE you.
The worth of our lives comes not in what we do or who we know, but by WHO WE ARE and WHOSE WE ARE.
You are special .

Don't EVER forget it.

Count your blessings, not your problems.
And remember that amateurs built the ark
Professionals built the Titanic.'

Wedding of the Wongs
Su Wong marries Lee Wong.
The next year, the Wongs have a new baby.
The nurse brings over a lovely, healthy, bouncy,but definitely a Caucasian, WHITE baby boy.
'Congratulations,' says the nurse to the new parents.
Well Mr. Wong, what will you and Mrs. Wong name the baby?'
The puzzled father looks at his new baby boy and says,'Well, two Wong's don't make a white,so I think we will name him...
Are you ready for this?
Sum Ting Wong

A woman's garden is growing beautifully but the darn tomatoes won't ripen.

There's a limit to the number of uses for green tomatoes and she's getting tired of it.

So she goes to her neighbor and says,"Your tomatoes are ripe, mine are green. What can I do about it?"
Her neighbor replies,"Well, it may sound absurd but here's what to do.
Tonight there's no moon. After dark go out into your garden and take all your clothes off. Tomatoes can see in the dark and they'll be embarrassed and blush.
In the morning they'll all be red, you'll see."
She says Well, what the heck it can't hurt to try it.
Next day her neighbor asks how it worked.
"So-so," she answers.
"The tomatoes are still green but the cucumbers are all four inches longer."


Why parents drink The boss wondered why one of his most valued employee had not phoned in sick one day. Having an urgent problem with one of the main computers, he dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whisper. 'Hello ?'
'Is your daddy home?' he asked.
' Yes ,' whispered the small voice.
'May I talk with him?'
The child whispered, 'No.'
Surprised and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, 'Is your Mommy there?'
'May I talk with her?'
Again the small voice whispered, 'No .'
Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked, 'Is anybody else t here?'
'Yes ,' whispered the child, 'a policeman '. Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked, 'May I speak with the policeman?'
' No, he's busy ', whispered the child.
'Busy doing what?'
'Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman ,' came the whispered answer.
Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in the background through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, 'What is that noise?'
'A helicopter ' answered the whispering voice.
'What is going on there?' demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive.
Again, whispering, the child answered, The search team just landed a helicopter . '
Alarmed, concerned and a little frustrated the boss asked, 'What are they searching for?'
Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle...
'ME .'


A minister decided to do something a little different one Sunday morning.

He said 'Today, in church, I am going to say a single word and you are going to help me preach.Whatever single word I say, I want you to sing whatever hymn that comes to your mind'

The pastor shouted out 'CROSS. Immediately the congregation started singing in unison, 'THE OLD RUGGED CROSS.

'The pastor hollered out 'GRACE.' The congregation began to sing 'AMAZING GRACE, how sweet the sound.

'The pastor said 'POWER.' The congregation sang 'THERE IS POWER IN THE BLOOD.

'The Pastor said 'SEX' The congregation fell into total silence.

Everyone was in shock.

They all nervously began to look around at each other afraid to say anything.

Then all of a sudden, way from in the back of the church, A little old 87 year old grandmother stood up and began to sing 'MEMORIES.

Love Little Old Ladies.

A First Grade Story
One day the first grade teacher was reading the story of the Three Little Pigs to her class.

She came to the part of the story where the first pig was trying to accumulate the building materials for his home.
She read, "...And so the pig went up to the man with the wheelbarrow full of straw and said, 'Pardon me sir, but may I have some of that straw to build my house?'
" The teacher paused then asked the class, "And what do you think that man said?"
One little boy raised his hand and said, "I know...he said---'Holy Shit! A talking pig!'" The teacher was unable to teach for the next 10 minutes


A Teacher asks her class, "If there are 5 birds sitting on a fence and you shoot one of them, how many will be left?"
He replies, "None, they will all fly away with the first gun shot." The teacher replies, "The correct answer is 4, but I like your thinking."
Then little Johnny says "I have a question for YOU.
There are Three women sitting on a bench having ice cream: One is delicately licking the sides of the triple scoop of ice cream.
The second is gobbling down the top and sucking the cone.
The third is biting off the top of the ice cream.
Which one is married?" The teacher, blushing a great deal, replied, "Well, I suppose the one that's gobbled down the top and sucked the cone.
To which Little Johnny replied,
"The correct answer is 'the one with the wedding ring on', but I like your thinking."


A woman answered her front door and found Little Johnny holding a list.

lady," Johnny explained,

I'm on a scavenger hunt, and I still need three grains of wheat, a pork-chop bone and a piece of used carbon paper so I can earn a dollar.

""Wow," the woman replied.

Who sent you on such a challenging hunt?

""My babysitter's boyfriend."

The Divorce letter

Gday everyone,hope the worlds treating you all well.
Not a lot happening here played Bowls twice this week .and now happily settled in front of the Television with cental heating on watching the Olympic games, just fantastic. Its broadcast here from about 10am through to 2am everyday, only stopping for the news at 6pm for 1hr.Wasn't the opening ceremony brilliant?.
Ill get around to visiting you all in the next few days.
Now on with a few jokes.. Enjoy.


A mechanic was removing a cylinder-head from the motor of a Harley motorcycle when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop.
The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come take a look at his bike when the mechanic shouted across the garage,
'Hey Doc, want to take a look at this?
'The cardiologist, a bit surprised, walked over to where the mechanic was working on the motorcycle.
The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked, 'So Doc, look at this engine. I open its heart, take the valves out, repair any damage, and then put them back in, and when I finish, it works just like new.
So how come I make $39,675 a year and you get the really big bucks ($1,695,759) when you and I are doing basically the same work?
'The cardiologist paused, smiled and leaned over, then whispered to the mechanic...

'Try doing it with the engine running
Irish Indians

Two Red Indians and an Irishman were walking through the woods.
All of a sudden one of the Red Indians ran up a hill to the mouth of a small cave.
'Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!' he called into the cave and listened closely until he heard an answering, 'Wooooo! Wooooo! Woooooo! He then tore off his clothes and ran into the cave.
The Irishman was puzzled and asked the remaining Indian what it was all about,.'Was the other Indian crazy or what?'
The Indian replied 'No, It is our custom during mating season when Indian men see cave, they holler 'Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!' into the opening.

If they get an answer back, it means there's a beautiful squaw in there waiting for us.
Just then they came upon another cave.
The second Indian ran up to the cave, stopped, and hollered, 'Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!' Immediately, there was the answer. 'Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!' from deep inside.He also tore off his clothes and ran into the opening.
The Irishman wandered around in the woods alone for a while, and then spied a third large cave. As he looked in amazement at the size of the huge opening, he was thinking, 'Hoo, man! Look at the size of this cave! It is bigger than those the Indians found.

There must be some really big, fine women in this cave!'
He stood in front of the opening and hollered with all his might 'Wooooo! Wooooo! Wooooo!' Like the others, he then heard an answering call,


With a gleam in his eye and a smile on his face, he raced into the cave,tearing off his clothes as he ran.
The following day, the headline of the local newspaper read...............

Divorce Letter -

Dear wife:I'm writing you this letter to tell you that I'm leaving you forever.
I've been a good man to you for 7 years and I have nothing to show for it.
These last 2 weeks have been hell; your boss called to tell me that you quit your job today and that was the last straw.
Last week, you came home and didn't even notice I had a new haircut, had cooked your favourite meal and even wore a brand new pair of silk boxers.
You ate in 2 minutes, & went straight to sleep after watching all ofyour soaps.
You don't tell me you love me anymore;
you don't want sex or anything that connects us as husband and wife.
Either you're cheating on me or you don't love me anymore;
Whatever the case,
I'm gone.
Your EX-Husband
P.S. don't try to find me.
Your sister and I are moving away to West Virginia together!
Have a great day

Dear Ex-Husband
Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter.
It's true you and I have been married for 7 years, although a good man is a far cry from what you've been.I watch my soaps so much because they drown out your constant whining and griping. Too bad that doesn't work.I did notice your hair cut last week, but the first thing that came to mind was 'You look just like a girl!
'Since my mother raised me not to say anything if you can't say something nice, I didn't comment.
When you cooked my favourite meal, you must have gotten me confused with my sister because I stopped eating pork 7 years ago.About those new silk boxers:
I turned away from you because the $49.99 price tag was still on them, and I prayed it was a coincidence that my sister had borrowed $50 from me that morning.
After all of this, I still loved you and felt we could work it out.

So when I hit the lotto for $10 million, I quit my job and bought us 2 tickets to Jamaica but when I got home you were gone. Everything happens for a reason, I guess. I hope you have the fulfilling life you always wanted.
My lawyer said that the letter you wrote ensures you won't get a dime from me.
So take care.Signed,
Your Ex-Wife,
Rich As Hell & Free!
P.S. I don't know if I ever told you this, but my sister Carla was born Carl. I hope that's not a problem.

A True Aussie Man
Only an Aussie man can make you feel like a woman.
A plane passed through a severe storm.
The turbulence was awful, and things went from bad to worse when one wing was struck by lightning.
One woman lost it completely
She stood up in the front of the plane and screamed, 'I'm too young to die,' she cried.
Then she yelled, 'If I'm going to die, I want my last minutes on earth to be memorable!
Is there anyone on this plane who can make me feel like a WOMAN?'
For a moment, there was silence.
Everyone stared at the desperate woman in the front of the plane.
Then the man from Australia stood up in the rear of the plane.
He was handsome, tall, well built, with dark brown hair and hazel eyes.
Slowly, he started to walk up the aisle, unbuttoning his shirt as he went, one button at a time.

No one moved.
He removed his shirt.
Muscles rippled across his chest.
She gasped
Then, he spoke
'Iron this --
and then get me a beer.'

A lot of people will walk in and out of your life
But only true friends will leave footprints.

A Little Merriment

The lovers passionately embraced on her bed, their bodies fused together as they gyrated to their own beat.
The woman cocked her ear,
My husband's coming through the front door! Hide in the bathroom!" she cried.
The lover ran into the bathroom as she hid his clothes under the bed and as she turned back, her husband came through the bedroom door.
"What are you doing lying on the bed naked?" he asked.
"Darling, I heard you coming up the drive and got ready to receive you," she replied with a knowing smile.
"Great," he said, "I'll just step into the bathroom and I'll be with you in two shakes." Before she could stop him, he was into the bathroom where he found a man clapping his hands together in mid-air.
"Who the devil are you!" the husband demanded.
"I'm from the exterminator company.

Your wife called me in to get rid of these pesky moths," the lover replied.
"But.. but you've got no clothes on?" stammered the husband.
The lover looked down and jumped backwards in surprise and said,

"The little bastards!"

A bear walks into a pub and sits down.
He bangs on the bar with his paw and demands a beer.
The bartender approaches and says, “We don't serve beer to bears in bars.”
The bear, becoming angry, demands again that he be served a beer.
The bartender tells him again, more forcefully,
“We don't serve beer to belligerent bears in bars.”
The bear, very angry now, says, “If you don’t serve me a beer, I’m going to eat that slapper sitting at the end of the bar.”The bartender says, “Sorry, we don’t serve beer to belligerent, bully bears.
” The bear goes to the end of the bar, and as promised, he eats the woman.
He comes back to his seat and again demands a beer.
The bartender states, “Sorry, we don’t serve beer to belligerent, bully bears in bars who are on drugs.”

The bear says,

“I'm NOT on drugs.” The bartender says, “You are now.

That was a barbitchyou ate.”

Baptising an Irishman
A man is stumbling through the woods, totally drunk, when he comes upon a preacher baptising people in the river
.He proceeds to walk into the water and subsequently bumps into the preacher.The preacher turns around and is almost overcome by the smell of alcohol, where upon he asks the drunk, 'Are you ready to find Jesus?
'The drunk shouts, 'Yes, oi am.'So the preacher grabs him and dunks him in the water.

He pulls him up and asks the drunk,

'Brother have you found Jesus?

'The drunk replies, 'No, oi haven't found Jesus.

'The preacher shocked at the answer, dunks him into the water again for a little longer.

He again pulls him out of the water and asks again,

'Have you found Jesus my brother?'

The drunk again answers, 'No,oi haven't found Jesus.'By this time the preacher is at his wits end and dunks the drunk in the water again --- but this time holds him down for about 30 seconds and when he begins kicking his arms and legs he pulls him up.
The preacher again asks the drunk,

'For the love of God have you found Jesus?'

(Are you ready for this????)

The drunk wipes his eyes and catches his breath and says to he preacher,

'Are you sure dis is where he fell in?'


A woman and a man are involved in a car accident on a snowy, cold Monday morning; it's a bad one.

Both of their cars are totally demolished but amazingly neither of them is hurt.
God works in mysterious ways.
After they crawl out of their cars, the man is yelling about women drivers.
The woman says, 'So, you're a man.

That's interesting.
I’m a woman.
Wow, just look at our cars! There's nothing left, but we're unhurt.
This must be a sign from God that we should be friends and live in peace for the rest of our days'.
Flattered, the man replies, 'Oh yes, I agree completely, this must be a sign from God!' But you're still at fault..
.women shouldn't be allowed to drive.
The woman continues, 'And look at this, here's another miracle.
My car is completely demolished but this bottle of wine didn't break.
Surely God wants us to drink this wine and celebrate our good fortune.
'She hands the bottle to the man.
The man nods his head in agreement, opens it and drinks half the bottle and then hands it back to the woman.
The woman takes the bottle, puts the cap back on and hands it back to the man.
The man asks, 'Aren't you having any?'
The woman replies,”No. I think I'll just wait for the police...

Women are clever, .

Don't mess with us.
Hope you all had a little laugh tonight

Cheers \_/ \_/ \_/
