Puppies for sale

A few more jokes to keep you smiling

A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell.

He painted a sign advertising the 4 pups.

And set about nailing it to a post on the edge of his yard.

As he was driving the last nail into the post, he felt a tug on his overalls.

He looked down into the eyes of little boy.

'Mister,' he said, 'I want to buy one of your puppies

.''Well,' said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat off the back of his neck, 'These puppies come from fine parents and cost a good deal of money.

'The boy dropped his head for a moment.

Then reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out a handful of change and held it up to the farmer

.'I've got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take a look?''Sure,' said the farmer.

And with that he let out a whistle. 'Here, Dolly!' he called.

Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran Dolly followed by four little balls of fur

.The little boy pressed his face against the chain link fence.

His eyes danced with delight.

As the dogs made their way to the fence,the little boy noticed something else stirring inside the doghouse.

Slowly another little ball appeared, this one noticeably smaller.

Down the ramp it slid.

Then in a somewhat awkward manner, the little pup began hobbling toward the others, doing its best to catch up....'I want that one,' the little boy said, pointing to the runt.

The farmer knelt down at the boy's side and said, 'Son, you don't wan t that puppy.

He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would.

'With that the little boy stepped back from the fence, reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his trousers.

In doing so he revealed a steel brace running down both sides of his leg attaching itself to a specially made shoe.

Looking back up at the farmer, he said, 'You see sir, I don't run too well myself, and he will need someone who understands.'

With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and picked up the little pup.

Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy.

'How much?' asked the little boy.

'No charge,' answered the farmer,

'There's no charge for love.'

The world is full of people who need someone who understands .


Priests do not lie !!!


A distinguished young woman on a flight from Switzerland asked thePriest beside her, "Father, may I ask a favor?""Of course.

that may I do for you?"

Well, I bought an expensive woman's electronic hair dryer for my mother's birthday.

The dryer is unopened and well over the Customs limits; and I'm afraid they'll confiscate it.

Is there any way you could carry it through Customs for me? Under your robes perhaps?""I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn you: I will not lie.

""With your honest face, Father, no one will question you.

"When they reached the Customs area, she let the priest go ahead of her.

The official asked: "Father, do you have anything to declare?""From the top of my head down to my waist, I have nothing to declare.

"The official thought this answer strange, so asked, "And what do you have to declare from your waist to the floor?

""I have a marvelous instrument designed to be used on a woman, but which is, to date, unused.

"Roaring with laughter, the official said, "Go ahead, Father."



After their baby was born, the panicked father
went to see the Obstetrician. 'Doctor,' the man
said, 'I don't mind telling you, but I'm a little
upset because my daughter has red hair . She can't possibly be mine!!'
'Nonsense,' the doctor said'.
'Even though you and your wife both have black
hair, one of your ancestors may have contributed red hair to the gene pool.''It isn't possible,' the man insisted.'This can't be, our families on both sides had jet-black hair for generations.''Well,' said the doctor, 'let me ask you this. How often do you have sex??? '
The man seemed a bit ashamed. 'I've been working very hard for the past year .
We only made love once or twice every few months.' 'Well, there you have it!' The doctor said confidently.
'It's rust !'


Golfer At The Dentist

Golfer at the dentist:
A man and his wife walked into a dentist's office.
The man said to the dentist, 'Doc, I'm in a big hurry.
I have two buddies sitting out in my car
waiting for us to go play golf, so forget about the
anesthetic and just pull the tooth and be done with it.
We have a 10:00 AM tee time at the best golf course
in town and it's 9:30 already. I don't have time to wait
for the anesthetic to work!'
The dentist thought to himself, 'My goodness, this is
surely a very brave man asking to have his tooth pulled
without using anything to kill the pain.'
So the dentist asks him, 'Which tooth is it, sir?
The man turned to his wife and said, 'Open your
mouth, Honey, and show him.'

G'Day everyone ,
Not a lot to report on tonight, Had a very quiet weekend , today we played pennant lawn bowls against Tungamah
and had a nice win, our rink won by 16 shots and overall by 25 shots..
Thats all folk. Im off to have an early night..
Now on with a few Jokes

This is a real educational one so thought I would post it.

What Starts with F and ends with K

A first-grade teacher, Ms. Brooks, was having trouble with one of her students.

The teacher asked, 'Harry, what's your problem ?

'Harry answered, 'I'm too smart for the 1st grade.

My sister is in the 3rd grade and I'm smarter than she is! I think I should be in the 3rd grade too !

'Ms. Brooks had had enough.

She took Harry to the principal's office.While Harry waited in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal what the situation was.

The principal told Ms. Brooks he would give the boy a test.

If he failed to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the 1st grade and behave.

She agreed.
Harry was brought in and the conditions were explained to him and he agreed to take the test.

Principal : 'What is 3 x 3 ?'Harry : '9.'

Principal : What is 6 x 6 ?'Harry : '36.

'And so it went with every question the principal thought a 3rd grader should know.

The principal looks at Ms. Brooks and tells her,

'I think Harry can go to the 3rd grade.'Ms. Brooks says to the principal,' Let me ask him some questions.'
The principal and Harry both agreed

.Ms. Brooks asks, 'What does a cow have four of that I have only two of ?'Harry, after a moment: 'Legs.'Ms Brooks:

'What is in your pants that you have but I do not have ?

'The principal wondered why would she ask such a question !Harry replied : 'Pockets.'

Ms. Brooks : 'What does a dog do that a man steps into ?'Harry : 'Pants.

'Ms. Brooks : What starts with a C , ends with a T , is hairy, oval, delicious and contains thin, whitish liquid ?'Harry : ' Coconut.

'The principal sat forward with his mouth hanging open.
Ms. Brooks :' What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky ?'The principal's eyes opened really wide and before he could stop the answer, Harry replied, 'Bubble gum.'

Ms. Brooks : 'What does a man do standing up, a woman does sitting down and a dog does on three legs ?'Harry : 'Shake hands.'The principal was trembling.

Ms. Brooks : 'What word starts with an 'F ' and ends in ' K ' that means a lot of heat and excitement ?'Harry : 'Fire truck.

'The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the teacher,'

Put Harry in the fifth-grade,

I got the last seven questions wrong.....'


A blonde gets home early from shopping and hears strange noises coming from the bedroom.
She rushes upstairs to find her husband naked on the bed,sweating and panting.
'What's up?' she asks.

'I'm having a heart attack,' cries the husband.

The blonde rushes downstairs to grab the phone, but just as she's dialing, her four-year-old son comes up and says,'Mommy! Mommy! Aunt Shirley is hiding in your closet, and she's got no clothes on!

'The blonde slams the phone down and storms upstairs into the bedroom, right past her husband, and rips open the closet door.

Sure enough, there is her sister, totally naked and cowering on the closet floor

.'You rotten 'Bitch', she screams.

'My husband's having a heart attack,

and you're running around naked scaring the kids!!'

Three males were met at the Pearly Gates by St. Peter.

He told them that their mode of transport in heaven would be decided by their answers to 2 questions

He asked the first male how long he had been married and how many times he had been unfaithful.

'Twenty years and only a couple of transgressions' he replied. '

Well you get a Mini then', said St Peter

St. Peter asked the 2nd male the same question. 'Twenty five years and only unfaithful once' said the 2nd man. 'Your vehicle is a Holden, he was told The third man proudly replied that he had been married for 30 years and had never been unfaithful. St. Peter told him that he would get the top of the range in transport - a BMW ! So off the three drove in their vehicles. Several days later St. Peter spotted the third man sitting in his BMW with his head on the steering wheel, crying his eyes out. 'Whatever is the matter' St. Peter asked 'you got the top car, why are you crying'? 'I just saw my wife go past on a skateboard', was the reply.



A couple were invited to a swanky family masked fancy dress Halloween party.

The wife got a terrible headache and told her husband to go to the party alone.

He, being a devoted husband, protested, but she argued and said she was going to take some aspirin and go to bed and there was no need for his good time to be spoiled by not going.

So he took his costume and away he went.

The wife, after sleeping soundly for about an hour, woke without pain and as it was still early, decided to go to the party.

As her husband didn't know what her costume was, she thought she would have some fun by watching her husband to see how he acted when she was! not with him.

So she joined the party and soon spotted her husband in his costume, cavorting around on the dance floor, dancing with every nice 'chick' he could and copping a little feel here and a little kiss there.

His wife went up to him and being a rather seductive babe herself, he left his new partner high and dry and devoted his time to her.

She let him go as far as he wished, naturally, since he was her husband.

After more drinks he finally he whispered a little proposition in her ear and she agreed, so off they went to one of the cars and had passionate intercourse in the back seat.

Just before unmasking at midnight, she slipped away and went home and put the costume away and She was sitting up reading when he came in, so she asked what kind of time he had. 'Oh, the same old thing.

You know I never have a good time when you're not there.'

Then she asked, 'Did you dance much?' He replied, 'I'll tell you, I never even danced one dance.

When I got there, I met Pete, Bill Brown and some other guys, so we went into the spare room and played poker all evening.'

'You must have looked really silly wearing that costume playing poker all night!' she said with unashamed sarcasm.

To which the husband replied,

'Actually, I gave my costume to your Dad, apparently he had the time of his life.'


Yesterday is history.

Tomorrow a mystery.]

Today is a gift.

That's why it's called the present!

Hope these jokes bought a little laughter to your day.

Cheers \_/\_/\_/
