More Holy Crap
    Bill was short of money and was out looking for a job. The church pastor offered Bill $500 to paint the church, and Bill took him up on it. He bought some paint and got to work. He discovered that he was using more paint than he expected so he added some thinner to it. The paint still covered but not as well as it did at first. He still was using more paint than he wanted to use so he added more thinner to the paint until finally the paint was too thin to cover well, but Bill still kept on painting. All of a sudden there was a bolt of lighting and a loud voice from the sky proclaimed, "Repaint and thin no more."

Holy Crap
    A Catholic priest heard confessions one Saturday, and the line of people coming to see him was so long that he didn't even have time to go to the bathroom. So, after giving of hope of getting a break, he called over the Church janitor to the booth.

    "Hey, buddy! Come over here and sit in the booth for a few minutes and hear confessions for me while I go to the bathroom," the priest said.

    "But Father," the janitor protested, "I can't do that. I'm not a Man of the Cloth like you!"

    The priest replied, "There's nothing to it. Look up on the wall here. There's a little chart I posted that's got all the sins listed here on the left column and their corresponding penances on the right hand side. When the person tells you their sin, you just read down here on the left till you find it and then look across to the right and tell them what they have to do for penance, okay?"

    So the janitor agreed. A minute later, a young woman entered the booth, sat down, and began, "Bless me Father for I have sinned; it has been one month since my last confession."

    "Go ahead my child, tell me your sins," the janitor said.

    "Well, last night I performed fellatio on my boyfriend."

    The janitor looked up at the list and searched for "fellatio" in the sin column, but he couldn't find it, so he said, "I'm sorry, my child, but could you be a little more specific."

    "Well, I mean, I performed oral sex on my boyfriend last night."

    The janitor nervously searched the sin column for "oral sex," but he couldn't find that either, so he said again, "I'm terribly sorry, my child, but could you be a little more specific."

    "Last night I gave my boyfriend a blow job, okay?" she exclaimed angrily.

    Frantically the janitor searched the sin column for the phrase "blow job," but again he could find nothing. Now he was panicked. He opened the door a crack and saw an altar boy standing nearby. Quickly he summoned the boy over and asked him in a nervous voice, "Hey kid, what does Father give for a blow job?"

    And the altar boy replied "Two candy bars and a Coke."

Polly Want A . . .
    A lady approached her priest and told him, "Father, I have a problem. I have two female talking parrots, but they only know how to say one thing."

    "What do they say?" the priest inquired.

    "They only know how to say, 'Hi, we're prostitutes. Want to have some fun?'"

    "That's terrible!" the priest said. "But I have a solution to your problem. Bring your two female parrots over to my house and I will put them with my two male talking parrots whom I taught to pray and read the bible. My parrots will teach your parrots to stop saying that terrible phrase and your female parrots will learn to praise and worship."

    The next day the woman brought her female parrots to the priest's house. His two male parrots held rosary beads and prayed in their cage. The lady put her two female parrots in with the males and the female parrots said, "Hi, we're prostitutes, want to have some fun?"

    One male parrot looked over at the other and said, "Put the beads away. Our prayers have been answered!"

This Is True - It Happened To My Cousin's Friend
    I was on my way to the post office to pick up my case of free M&M's (sent to me because I forwarded an e-mail to five other people celebrating the fact that the year 2000 is "MM" in Roman numerals), when I ran into a friend whose neighbor, a young man, was home recovering from having been served a rat in his bucket of Kentucky Fried Chicken (which is predictable, since as everyone knows, there's no actual chicken in Kentucky Fried Chicken, which is why the government made them change their name to KFC).

    Anyway, one day this guy went to sleep and when he awoke he was in his bathtub and it was full of ice and he was sore all over and when he got out of the tub he realized that HIS KIDNEY HAD BEEN STOLEN. He saw a note on his mirror that said "Call 911!" but he was afraid to use his phone because it was connected to his computer, and there was a virus on his computer that would destroy his hard drive if he opened an e-mail entitled "Join the crew!"

    He knew it wasn't a hoax because he himself was a computer programmer who was working on software to prevent a global disaster in which all the computers get together and distribute the $250.00 Neiman-Marcus cookie recipe under the leadership of Bill Gates. (It's true - I read it all last week in a mass e-mail from BILL GATES HIMSELF, who was also promising me a free Disney World vacation and $5,000 if I would forward the e-mail to everyone I know.)

    The poor man then tried to call 911 from a pay phone to report his missing kidneys, but a voice on the line first asked him to press #90, which unwittingly gave the bandit full access to the phone line at the guy's expense. Then reaching into the coin-return slot he got jabbed with an HIV-infected needle around which was wrapped a note that said, "Welcome to the world of AIDS."

    Luckily, he was only a few blocks from the hospital -- the one where that little boy who is dying of cancer is, the one whose last wish is for everyone in the world to send him an e-mail and the American Cancer Society has agreed to pay him a nickel for every e-mail he receives.

    I sent him two e-mails and one of them was a bunch of x's and o's in the shape of an angel (if you get it and forward it to more than 10 people, you will have good luck but for 10 people only you will only have OK luck and if you send it to fewer than 10 people you will have BAD LUCK FOR SEVEN YEARS).

    So anyway the poor guy tried to drive himself to the hospital, but on the way he noticed another car driving without its lights on. To be helpful, he flashed his lights at him and was promptly shot as part of a gang initiation.

    Send THIS to all the friends who send you their junk mail and you will receive 4 green M&Ms-if you don't, the owner of Proctor and Gamble will report you to his Satanist friends and you will have more bad luck: you will get sick from the Sodium Laureth Sulfate in your shampoo, your spouse/mate will develop a skin rash from using the antiperspirant which clogs the pores under your arms, and the U.S. government will put a tax on your e-mails forever. I know this is all true 'cause I read it on the Internet.

Tragedy
    Bill Clinton is visiting a school. In one class, he asks the students if anyone can give him an example of a "tragedy." One little boy stands up and offers "If my best friend who lives next door was playing in the street when a car came along and killed him, that would be a tragedy."

    "No," Clinton says, "That would be an ACCIDENT."

    A girl raises her hand. "If a schoolbus carrying fifty children drove off a cliff, killing everyone involved...that would be a tragedy."

    "I'm afraid not," explains Clinton. "That is what we would call a GREAT LOSS."

    The room is silent; none of the other children volunteer. "What?" asks Clinton. "Isn't there any one here who can give me an example of a tragedy?"

    Finally, a boy in the back raises his hand. In a timid voice, he says "If an airplane carrying Bill and Hillary Clinton were blown up by a bomb, that would be a tragedy."

    "Wonderful!" Clinton beams. "Marvelous! And can you tell me WHY that would be a tragedy?"

    "Well," says the boy. "It wouldn't be an accident, and it certainly would be no great loss!"

The Apartment
    A businessman meets a beautiful girl and agrees to spend the afternoon with her for $500. So they do. Before he leaves, he tells her that he does not have any cash with him, but that he will have his secretary write a check and mail it to her, calling the payment "RENT FOR APARTMENT."

    On the way to the office he regrets what he has done, realizing that the whole event was not worth the price. So he has his secretary send a check for $250 and enclosed the following typed note:

    Dear Madam,
    Enclosed find check in the amount of $250 for rent of your apartment. I am not sending the amount agreed upon, because when I rented the apartment, I was under the impression that:
    1) it had never been occupied;
    2) that there was plenty of heat;
    3) that is was small enough to make me cozy and at home.
    However, I found out that it had been previously occupied, that there wasn't any heat, and that it was entirely too large.

    Upon receipt of the note, the girl immediately returned the check for $250 with the following note:

    Dear Sir:
    First of all, I cannot understand how you expect a beautiful apartment to remain unoccupied indefinitely. As for the heat, there is plenty of it, if you know how to turn it on. Regarding the space, the apartment is indeed of regular size, but if you don't have enough furniture to fill it, please do not blame the landlady.

Coincidence
    A man stumbles up to the only other patron in a bar and asks if he could buy him a drink.
    "Why of course," comes the reply.
    The first man then asks: "Where are you from?"
    "I'm from Ireland," replies the second man.
    The first man responds: "You don't say, I'm from Ireland too! Let's have another round to Ireland."
    "Of course," replies the second man.
    Curious, the first man then asks: "Where in Ireland are you from?"

One-liners, Part 3
    I went to the hardware store and bought some used paint. It was in the shape of a house.
    I bought some batteries, but they weren't included.
    I have two very rare photographs. One is a picture of Houdini locking his keys in his car. The other is a rare photograph of Norman Rockwell beating up a child.
    I went to a restaurant that serves "Breakfast any time." So I ordered French Toast during the Renaissance.
    One time a cop pulled me over for running a stop sign. He said, "Didn't you see the stop sign?" I said, "Yeah, but I don't believe everything I read."
    When I have a kid, I want to buy one of those strollers for twins. Then put the kid in and run around, looking frantic. When he gets older, I'd tell him he used to have a brother, but he didn't obey.
    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
    My school colors were clear. We used to say, "I'm not naked, I'm in the band."

    I stayed up all night playing poker with tarot cards. I got a full house and four people died.
    Last week, I went to a furniture store to look for a decaffeinated coffee table.
    What's another word for "thesaurus"?
    When I get real bored, I like to drive downtown and get a great parking spot, then sit in my car and count how many people ask if I'm leaving.
    When I was a kid, we had a quicksand box in the backyard. I was an only child . . . eventually.
    For my birthday I got a humidifier and a dehumidifier. I put them in the same room and let them fight it out.
    I replaced the headlights on my car with strobe lights. Now it looks like I'm the only one moving.
    I wrote a song, but I can't read music. Every time I hear a new song on the radio, I think "Hey, maybe I wrote that."
    I got my driver's license photo taken out of focus on purpose. Now when I get pulled over the cop looks at it (moving it nearer and farther, trying to see it clearly) . . . and says, "Here, you can go."
    I spilled Spot remover on my dog. Now he's gone.
    I bought some powdered water, but I didn't know what to add.
    I put instant coffee in a microwave and almost went back in time.
    I bought a house on a one-way dead-end road. I don't know how I got there.

Microsoft -- Two Punchlines
    Q: How may Microsoft programmers does it take to change a light bulb?
    1: None. It's a hardware problem.
    2: None. Bill Gates declares that "dark" is the new universal standard and you'll just have to get used to it.

Dilbert Lines
    I can please only one person per day. Today is not your day. Tomorrow isn't looking good either.

    I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make as they go flying by.

    Someday we'll look back on all this and plow into a parked car.

    There are very few personal problems that cannot be solved through a suitable application of high explosives.

    Tell me what you need, and I'll tell you how to get along without it.

    Accept that some days you're the pigeon and some days you're the statue.

    Needing someone is like needing a parachute. If he isn't there the first time you need him, chances are you won't be needing him again.

    I don't have an attitude problem. You have a perception problem.

    Last night I lay in bed looking up at the stars in the sky and I thought to myself, "Where the hell is the ceiling?!"

    My Reality Check bounced.

    On the keyboard of life, always keep one finger on the escape key.

    I don't suffer from stress; I'm a carrier.

    Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons, 'cause, like, to them, you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.

    Everybody is somebody else's weirdo.

    Never argue with an idiot. They drag you down to their level then beat you with experience

They're All The Same
    The pilot was Jewish, and the new co-pilot was Taiwan Chinese. It was the first time they had flown together, and it was obvious by the silence that they didn't get along.

    After 30 minutes, the pilot finally spoke. He said, "I don't like Chinese."

    The co-pilot replied, "Ooooh, no like Chinese? Why is that?"

    The pilot said, "You bombed Pearl Harbor. That's why I don't like Chinese."

    The co-pilot said, "Nooooo, noooo . . . Chinese not bomb Pearl Harbah. That JAPANESE, not Chinese."

    And the pilot answered, "Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese . . . it doesn't matter. They're all the same."

    Another 30 minutes of silence.

    Finally the co-pilot said, "No like Jew."

    The pilot replied, "Why not? Why don't you like Jews?"

    "Jews sink Titanic." Said the co-pilot

    The pilot tried to correct him, "No, no. The Jews didn't sink the Titanic. It was an iceberg."

    "Iceberg, Goldberg, Rosenberg .. no mattah .. all same!"

Fore!
    RULES OF BEDROOM GOLF:
    1. Each player shall furnish his own equipment for play, normally one club and two balls.
    2. Play on a course must be approved by the owner of the hole.
    3. Unlike outdoor golf, the object is to get the club in the hole and keep the balls out.
    4. For most effective play, the club should have a firm shaft. Course owners are permitted to check shaft stiffness before play begins.
    5. Course owner reserves the right to restrict the length of the club to avoid damage to the hole.
    6. The object of the game is to take as many strokes as necessary until the course owner is satisfied that the play is complete. Failure to do so many result in being denied the right to play the course again.
    7. It is considered bad form to begin playing the hole immediately upon arrival at the course. The experienced player will take time to admire the entire course, with special attention to the well formed bunkers.
    8. Players are cautioned not to mention other courses they have or are currently playing to the course owner. Upset course owners have been known to damage a player's equipment for this reason.
    9. Players are encouraged to have proper rain gear along, just in case.
    10. Players should assure themselves that their match is properly scheduled, particularly when a new course is being played for the first time. Previous players have been known to become irate if they discover someone else playing what they consider to be a private course.
    11. Players should not assume a course is in shape for play at all times. Some players may be embarrassed if they find the course to be temporarily under repair. Players are advised to be extremely tactful in this situation. More advanced players will find alternative means of play when this is the case.
    12. Players are advised to obtain course owner's permission before attempting to play the back nine.
    13. Slow play is encouraged; however, players should be prepared to proceed at a quick pace, at least temporarily, at course owner's request.
    14. It is considered outstanding performance, time permitting, to play the same course several times in one match.
    15. The course owner will be sole judge of who is the best player.
    ** Players are advised to think twice before considering membership at a given course. Additional assessments may be levied by Course Owner and the rules are subject to change. For this reason, many players prefer to continue to play several different courses.

Internet Truths
    Big companies don't do business via chain letters. Bill Gates is not giving you $1000, and Disney is not giving you a free vacation. There is no baby food company issuing class-action checks. Procter and Gamble is not part of a satanic cult or scheme, and its logo is not satanic. MTV will not give you backstage passes if you forward something to the most people. You can relax; there is no need to pass it on "just in case it's true". Furthermore, just because someone said in a message, four generations back, that "We checked it out and it's legit," does not actually make it true.

    There is no kidney theft ring in New Orleans. No one is waking up in a bathtub full of ice, even if a friend of a friend swears it happened to their cousin. If you are hell-bent on believing the kidney-theft ring stories, see http://urbanlegends.tqn.com/library/weekly/aa062997.htm And I quote: "The National Kidney Foundation has repeatedly issued requests for actual victims of organ thieves to come forward and tell their stories. None have." That's "none" as in "zero". Not even your friend's cousin.

    Neiman Marcus doesn't really sell a $200 cookie recipe. And even if they do, we all have it. And even if you don't, you can get a copy at: http://www.bl.net/forwards/cookie.html Then, if you make the recipe, decide the cookies are that awesome, feel free to pass the recipe on.

    If the latest NASA rocket disasters DID contain plutonium that was blown into particulate matter over the eastern seaboard, do you REALLY think this information would reach the public via an AOL chain letter?

    There is no "Good Times" virus. In fact, you should never, ever, ever forward any email containing any virus warning unless you first confirm it with an actual site of an actual company that actually deals with viruses. Try: http://www.symantec.com/avcenter/Index.htp And even then, don't forward it. We don't care. And you cannot get a virus from a flashing IM or email, you have to download.... a FILE!

    There is no gang initiation plot to murder any motorist who flashes headlights at another car driving at night without lights.

    If you still absolutely MUST forward that 10th-generation message from a friend, at least have the decency to trim the eight miles of headers showing everyone else who's received it over the last 6 months.

    Craig Shergold (or Sherwood, or Sherman, etc.) in England is not dying of cancer or anything else at this time and would like everyone to stop sending him their business cards. He apparently is no longer a "little boy" either.

    The "Make a Wish" foundation is a real organization doing fine work, but they have had to establish a special toll free hot line in response to the large number of Internet hoaxes using their good name and reputation. It is distracting them from the important work they do.

    If you are one of those insufferable idiots who forwards anything that "promises" something bad will happen if you "don't," then something bad will happen to you if I ever meet you in a dark alley.

    Women really are suffering in Afghanistan, and PBS and NEA funding are still vulnerable to attack (although not at the present time) but forwarding an e-mail won't help either cause in the least. If you want to help, contact your local legislative representative, or get in touch with Amnesty International or the Red Cross. As a general rule, e-mail "signatures" are easily faked and mean nothing to anyone with any power to do anything about whatever the competition is complaining about.

    (P.S.: There is no bill pending before Congress that will allow long distance companies to charge you for using the Internet.)

    Bottom Line... composing e-mail or posting something on the Net is as easy as writing on the walls of a public restroom. Don't automatically believe it until it's proven false... ASSUME it's false, unless there is proof that it's true. Now forward this to everyone you know or the program I just put on your hard drive while you read this E-mail will open up your CD-ROM and reach out and slap you upside the head.

    10. No one steals your chair.

Letter To God
    One day a little boy asked his mom if God can really do anything. "Sure He can, you just have to ask." So the little boy wrote a letter to God:

    Dear God:
    Can you please give me a hundred dollars?
    Love, Billy.

    He stuffed it in an enveloped and addressed it to GOD, USA.

    When the Post Office got it, they decided it was meant for President Clinton.

    Bill Clinton opened up the letter and was charmed by it. He asked the Treasury secretary to send the little boy 5 dollars because he thought that would seem like a lot of money to a little boy.

    When Billy got the money back, he decided to write another to God:

    Dear God,
    Thank you for sending me the money I asked you for, I see you had to send the money to Washington first, and as usual, those bastards deducted 95 dollars!
