    "I love California. I practically grew up in Phoenix."

KFC and the Pope
    After watching sales falling off for three straight months at Kentucky Fried Chicken, the Colonel calls up the Pope and asks for a favor.

    The Pope says, "What can I do?"

    The Colonel says, "I need you to change the daily prayer from, 'Give us this day our daily bread' to 'Give us this day our daily chicken.' If you do it, I'll donate 10 Million Dollars to the Vatican."

    The Pope replies, "I am sorry. That is the Lord's prayer and I can not change the words."

    So the Colonel hangs up. After another month of dismal sales, the Colonel panics, and calls again.

    "Listen your Excellency. I really need your help. I'll give you $50 million dollars if you change the words of the daily prayer from 'Give us this day our daily bread' to 'Give us this day our daily chicken.'"

    And the Pope responds, "It is very tempting, Colonel Sanders. The church could do a lot of good with that much money. It would help us support many charities. But, again, I must decline. It is the Lord's prayer, and I can't change the words."

    So the Colonel gives up again. After two more months of terrible sales the Colonel gets desperate. "This is my final offer, your Excellency. If you change the words of the daily prayer from, 'Give us this day our daily bread' to 'Give us this day our daily chicken' I will donate $100 million to the Vatican."

    The Pope replies, "Let me get back to you."

    So the next day, the Pope calls together all of his bishops and says, "I have some good news and I have some bad news. The good news is that KFC is going to donate $100 million to the Vatican."

    The bishops rejoice at the news. Then one asks about the bad news.

    The Pope replies, "The bad news is that we lost the Wonder Bread account."

You've Been Out Of College Too Long When . . .
    Your potted plants stay alive.

    Having sex in a twin-sized bed is absurd.

    You keep more food than beer in the fridge.

    6:00 AM is when you get up, not when you go to sleep.

    You hear your favorite song on the elevator at work.

    You carry an umbrella.

    You watch the Weather Channel.

    Your friends marry and divorce instead of hook-up and break-up.

    You go from 130 days of vacation time to 7.

    Jeans and a sweater no longer qualify as dressed up.

    You're the one calling the police because those damn kids next door don't know how to turn down the stereo.

    Older relatives feel comfortable telling sex jokes around you.

    You don't know what time Taco Bell closes anymore.

    Your car insurance goes down and your car payments go up.

    You feed your dog Science Diet instead of McDonalds.

    Sleeping on the couch is a no-no.

    You no longer take naps from noon to 6 p.m.

    Dinner and a movie - The whole date instead of the beginning of one.

    MTV News is no longer your primary source for information.

    You go to the drugstore for Ibuprofen and antacids, not condoms and pregnancy test kits.

    A $4.00 bottle of wine is no longer 'pretty good stuff.'

    You actually eat breakfast foods at breakfast time.

    Grocery lists are longer than macaroni & cheese, diet Pepsi & Ho-Ho's.

    "I just can't drink the way I used to" replaces "I'm never going to drink that much again."

    Over 90% of the time you spend in front of a computer is for real work.

    You don't get liquored up at home to save money before going to a bar.

The Blonde Guy
    An Irishman, a Mexican and a blond guy were doing construction work on scaffolding on the 20th floor of a building. They were eating lunch and the Irishman said, "Corned beef and cabbage! If I get corned beef and cabbage one more time for lunch I'm going to jump off this building." The Mexican opened his lunch box and exclaimed, "Burritos again! If I get burritos one more time I'm going to jump off, too." The blond opened his lunch and said, "Bologna again. If I get a bologna sandwich one more time I'm jumping too."

    Next day the Irishman opens his lunch box, sees corned beef and cabbage and jumps to his death. The Mexican opens his lunch, sees a burrito and jumps too. The blond opens his lunch, sees the bologna and jumps to his death also.

    At the funeral The Irishman's wife is weeping. She says, "If I'd known how really tired he was of corned beef and cabbage I never would have given it to him again! The Mexican's wife also weeps and says, "I could have given him tacos or enchiladas! I didn't realize he hated burritos so much."

    Everyone turned and stared at the blonde's wife. "Hey, don't look at me" she said. "He made his own lunches."

Blonde On A Horse
    A blonde decides to try horseback, even though she has had no lessons or prior experience. She mounts the horse unassisted and the horse immediately springs into motion. It gallops along at a steady and rhythmic pace, but the blonde begins to slip from the saddle. In terror, she grabs for the horse's mane, but cannot seem to get a firm grip.

    She tries to throw her arms around the horse's neck, but she slides down the side of the horses anyway.

    The horse gallops along, seemingly impervious to its slipping rider. Finally, giving up her frail grip, she leaps away from the horse to try and throw herself to safety. Unfortunately, her foot has become entangled in the stirrup, she is now at the mercy of the horse's pounding hooves as her head is struck against the ground over and over.

    As her head is battered against the ground, she is mere moments away from unconsciousness when to her good fortune . . .

    . . . the Wal-Mart Manager sees her and shuts off the horse.

Remember When . . .
    A computer was something on TV
    From a science fiction show of note
    A window was something you hated to clean
    And ram was the cousin of a goat.

    Meg was the name of my girlfriend
    And gig was a job for the nights
    Now they all mean different things
    And that really mega bytes.

    An application was for employment
    A program was a TV show
    A cursor used profanity
    A keyboard was a piano.

    Memory was something that you lost with age
    A CD was a bank account
    And if you had a 3 1/2" floppy
    You hoped nobody found out.

    Compress was something you did to the garbage
    Not something you did to a file
    And if you unzipped anything in public
    You' be in jail for a while.

    Log on was adding wood to the fire
    Hard drive was a long trip on the road
    A mouse pad was where a mouse lived
    And a backup happened to your commode.

    Cut you did with a pocket knife
    Paste you did with glue
    A web was a spider's home
    And a virus was the flu.

    I guess I'll stick to my pad and paper
    And the memory in my head
    I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash
    But when it happens they wish they were dead.

Modern Age Mottos
    Home is where you hang your @

    A journey of a thousand sites begins with a single click.

    You can't teach a new mouse old clicks.

    Great groups from little icons grow.

    Speak softly and carry a cellular phone.

    C:\ is the root of all directories.

    Don't put all your hypes in one home page.

    Pentium wise; pen and paper foolish.

    The modem is the message.

    Too many clicks spoil the browse.

    The geek shall inherit the earth.

    A chat has nine lives.

    Don't byte off more than you can view.

    Fax is stranger than fiction.

    What boots up must come down.

    Windows will never cease.

    Virtual reality is its own reward.

    Modulation in all things.

    A user and his leisure time are soon parted.

    There's no place like http://www.home.com

    Know what to expect before you connect.

    Oh, what a tangled Website we weave when first we practice html.

    Give a person a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a person to use the Net and he won't bother you for weeks.

Guys Just Can't Win
    If you work too hard, you're not spending enough time with her.

    If you don't work hard enough, you're a good-for-nothing bum.

    If she has a boring repetitive job with low pay, it's exploitation.

    If you have a boring repetitive job with low pay, you should get off your butt and find something better.

    If you get a promotion ahead of her, it's favoritism.

    If she gets a job ahead of you, it's equal opportunity.

    If you mention how nice she looks, it's sexual harassment.

    If you keep quiet, it's male indifference.

    If you cry, you're a wimp.

    If you don't, you're insensitive.

    If you make a decision without consulting her, you're a chauvinist.

    If she makes a decision without consulting you, she's a liberated woman.

    If you ask her to do something she doesn't enjoy, that's domination.

    If she asks you, it's a favor.

    If you try to keep yourself in shape, you're vain.

    If you don't, you're a slob.

    If you buy her flowers, you're after something.

    If you don't, you're not thoughtful.

    If you're proud of your achievements, you're an egotist.

    If you're not, you're not ambitious.

    If she has a headache, she's tired.

    If you have a headache, you don't love her anymore.

I'm Glad I'm A Woman
    I'm glad I'm a woman, yes I am, yes I am.
    I don't live off of Budweiser, Beer Nuts and Spam.
    I don't brag to my buddies about my erections.
    I won't drive forever before I ask for directions.

    I don't get wasted at parties, and act like a clown.
    And I know how to put that damned toilet seat down!
    I won't grab your hooters, I won't pinch your butt.
    My belt buckle's not hidden beneath my beer gut.

    And I don't go around "re-adjusting" my crotch,
    or yell like Tarzan when my headboard gets a notch.
    I don't belch in public, I don't scratch my behind.
    I'm a woman you see -- I'm just not that kind!

    I'm glad I'm a woman, I'm so glad I could sing.
    I don't have body hair like shag carpeting.
    It doesn't grow from my ears or cover my back.
    When I lean over you can't see 3 inches of crack.

    And what's on my head doesn't leave with my comb.
    I'll never buy a toupee to cover my dome.
    Or have a few hairs pulled from over the side.
    I'm a woman, you know -- I've got far too much pride!

    I don't live to play golf and shoot basketball.
    I don't swagger and spit like a Neanderthal.
    I won't tell you my wife just does not understand,
    or stick my hand in my pocket to hide that gold band.

    Or tell you a story to make you sigh and weep,
    then do you, roll over and fall sound asleep!
    Yes, I'm so very glad I'm a woman, you see.
    Forget all about that old penis envy.

    I don't long for male bonding, I don't cruise for chicks.
    Join the Hair Club For Men, or think with my dick.
    I'm a woman by chance and I'm thankful, it's true.
    I'm so glad I'm a woman and not a man like you!

I'm Glad I'm A Man
    I'm glad I'm a man, you better believe.
    I don't live off of yogurt, diet coke, or cottage cheese.
    I don't bitch to my girlfriends about the size of my chest.
    I can get where I want to - north, south, east or west.

    I don't get wasted after only 2 beers,
    and when I do drink I don't end up in tears.
    I won't spend hours deciding what to wear.
    I spend 5 minutes max fixing my hair.

    And I don't go around checking my reflection
    in everything shiny from every direction.
    I don't whine in public and make us leave early,
    and when you ask why get all bitter and surly.

    I'm glad I'm a man, I'm so glad I could sing.
    I don't have to sit around waiting for that ring.
    I don't gossip about friends or stab them in the back.
    I don't carry our differences into the sack.

    I'll never go psycho and threaten to kill you
    or think every guy out there's trying to steal you.
    I'm rational, reasonable, and logical too.
    I know what the time is and I know what to do.

    I live to watch sports and play all sorts of ball.
    It's more fun than dealing with women after all.
    I won't cry if you say it's not going to work.
    I won't remain bitter and call you a jerk.

    Feel free to use me for immediate pleasure.
    I won't assume it's permanent by any measure.
    Yes, I'm so very glad I'm a man, you see.
    I'm glad I'm not capable of child delivery.

    I don't get all bitchy every 28 days.
    I'm glad that my gender gets me a much bigger raise.
    I'm a man by chance and I'm thankful it's true.
    I'm so glad I'm a man and not a woman like you!

Balls!
    After a two -year long study, The National Science Foundation announced the following results on Corportate America's recreational preferences.

    The sport of choice for male unemployed or incarcerated people is BASKETBALL

    The sport of choice for male mainenance level employees is BOWLING

    The sport of choice for male front-line workers is FOOTBALL

    The sport of choice for male supervisors is BASEBALL

    The sport of choice for male middle management is TENNIS

    The sport of choice for male corporate officers is GOLF.

    Conclusion: The higher you are in the corporate structure, the smaller your balls become...

Actual Laws
    In England, it's illegal to name your pet "Queen" or "Princess" without the Queen's permission.

    If you aren't a member of the royal family in Japan, it's illegal for you to own a maroon car.

    In Equatorial Guinea, you can name your daughter anything you want-except Monica.

    In India, women-but not men-are allowed to marry goats.

    Old English law: if an object is smaller than a husband's little finger, he can beat his wife with it.

    In Canada, if a debt is higher than 250, it's against the law for you to pay with pennies.

    In Vancouver, British Columbia, the speed limit for tricycles is 10 miles per hour.

    In Baluchistan, Pakistan, the law allows a man to "acquire" a wife by trading in his sister.

    In Athens, Greece, driving on public roads while "unbathed" or poorly dressed can cost you your driver's license.

    If a man is wearing a hat in Cheshire, England, the law requires him to raise it when a funeral passes.

    You can keep cows in sheds in the Northern Territories of Canada, and you can keep chickens in sheds. But you can't keep cows and chickens in the same shed.

    Makes sense: in London, England, it's illegal to operate a motor vehicle while sitting in the back seat.

    In Australia, the pictures of convicted drunk drivers are published in newspapers with the caption, "He's drunk and in jail."

    Cigarettes are legal in Nicaragua; cigarette lighters aren't.

    Boxing is illegal in China (too brutal); capital punishment isn't.

A Clever Anagram
    "That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind." Neil Armstrong

    The Anagram:

    "A thin man ran; makes a large stride, left planet, pins flag on moon. On to Mars!"

    (Interestingly, the Armstrong quote is what he MEANT to say, not what he actually said. He really said ". . . one small step for man . . ." not ". . . one small step for a man . . ." But it's still a very cool anagram.)

The Lost Hat
    My uncle once spent days looking for his new hat. Finally, he decided that he'd go to church on Sunday and sit at the back. During the service he would sneak out and grab a hat from the rack at the front door.

    On Sunday, he went to church and sat at the back. The sermon was about the Ten Commandments. He sat through the whole sermon and instead of sneaking out he waited until the sermon was over and went to talk to the minister.

    "Father, I came here today to steal a hat to replace the one I lost. But after hearing your sermon on the Ten Commandments, I changed my mind."

    The minister said, "Bless you my son. Was it when I started to preach 'Thou Shall Not Steal,' that changed your heart?"

    My uncle responded, "No, it was the one on adultery. When you started to preach on that, I remembered where I left my hat."

Things That Sound Dirty In Golf But Aren't
    Nuts...my shaft is bent.

    After 18 holes I can barely walk.

    You really whacked the hell out of that sucker.

    Look at the size of his putter.

    Keep your head down and spread your legs a bit more.

    Mind if I join your threesome?

    Stand with your back turned and drop it.

    My hands are so sweaty I can't get a good grip.

    Nice stroke, but your follow through has a lot to be desired.

    Hold up...I need to wash my balls first.

What Men Want Women To Know
    If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.

    Learn to work the toilet seat. When the lid is up, put it down.

    Birthdays, valentines, and anniversaries are not quests to find that perfect present, again.

    If you ask a question you don't want an answer to , expect an answer you don't want to hear.

    Sometimes we're not thinking about you. Live with it.

    Sunday sports-- it's like the full moon, or the changing of the tides. It can't be altered, so just let it be.

    Don't ask us what we're thinking, unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as sex, shortstops, or carburators.

    Shopping is not a sport.

    Anything you wear is fine. Really!

    You have enough clothes.

    You have too many shoes.

    Ask for what you want. Subtle hints don't work.

    No, we don`t know what day it is. We never will. Mark all anniversaries on a caleneder.

    Yes, peeing standing up is harder than peeing from point blank range. We're bound to miss sometime.

    Most guys own 2 or 3 pairs of shoes. What makes you think we'd be any good at choosing which pair out of 30 would look good with your dress?

    Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers.

    A headache that lasts for 17 days is a problem. See a doctor.

    Your mom doesn't have to be our best friend.

    Don`t fake it. We'd rather be ineffective than deceived.

    Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissable in an argument. All comments become null and void after7 days.

    If something we said can be interpreted 2 ways, and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, then we meant the other one.

    You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done, but not both.

    Let us ogle. If we don't look at other women, how can we know how pretty you are?

    Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.

    Christopher Columbus didn't need directions, and neither do we.

Diet
    A diet is a weigh of life.

    It's something most of us do religiously: We eat what we want and pray we don't gain weight.

    A diet is what you go on when not only can't you fit into the store's dresses, you can't fit into the dressing room.

    One guideline applies to fat and thin people alike: If you're thin, don't eat fast. If you're fat, don't eat . . . fast.

    The problem with curbing our appetites is that most of us do it at the drive in window of McDonalds.

    The most fattening thing you can put in an ice cream sundae is a spoon.

    The biggest drawback to fasting for seven days is that it makes one weak.

    Above all, dieters are advised to avoid Pepsi, the pause that 'refleshes.'

    Sweets are the destiny that shapes our ends.

    Diets are for people who are thick and tired of it.

    The toughest part of a diet isn't watching what you eat. It's watching what other people eat.

    Diets are for women who not only kept their girlish figure but doubled it.

    A diet is when you have to go to some length to change your width.

    It's not the minutes spent at the table that put on weight, it's the seconds.

    Many women reduce and reduce, yet still never manage to become a bargain.

    The best way to lose weight is by skipping... snacks and desert.

    Most people gain weight by having intimate dinners for two . . . alone.

    People go to Weight Watchers to learn their 'lessens.'

    A diet is the modern-day meal in which a family counts its calories instead of its blessings.
