Stranded With Nicole Kidman
    A guy is shipwrecked on a celebrity cruise and he wakes up stranded on a desert island with Nicole Kidman.

    Anyway, after a few weeks they are having passionate sex every day. This is all fine and dandy for a bit, but the guy starts getting a bit depressed.

    Nicole comes up to him on the beach one day and says, "What's the matter?"

    He says "Well, it's wonderful, I'm on a tropical island with a beautiful woman who I love, but...but... I miss my mates. I miss going down to the pub with them."

    She says, "Well, I'm an actress. Maybe if I get dressed in some of those male clothes which were left behind in the trunks, I can pretend to be one of your friends, and you can talk to me as if you were down at the pub."

    It sounded a bit weird but he thought he would give it a try.

    So she gets into the mens' clothing and they sit down next to each other, And the guy goes "Hey Joe, You'll never guess who I've been screwing..."

    "Hey, what was that for?" asked the Chinese man.

    "That was for attacking Pearl Harbor," said the Jew.

    "That was the Japanese, you idiot. I am Chinese."

    "Chinese, Japanese, what's the difference?" said the Jew.

    They continue on their way, when suddenly the Chinese man turned and hit the Jew, knocking him to the ground.

    "Hey, what was that for?" asksed the Jew.

    "That was for sinking the Titanic," said the Chinese man.

    "The Titanic? That was an iceberg, you idiot," the Jew replied.

    "Iceberg, Goldberg, what's the difference?" said the Chinese man.

    Friends are people who know you well, but like you anyway.

    Friends help you move. Real friends help you move bodies.

    Friends don't let friends drive naked.

    Friends -- the people who stab you in the front.

    Sometimes people need what only friends can provide -- absence.

    Friends who think they're perfect are very annoying to those of us who really are.

    When the pin is pulled, Mr. Grenade is not our friend.

    After a while the owner asks, "May I help you sir?"

    The drummer says, "I'll take the red saxophone and the silver accordian."

    "Well," says the owner, "I'll let you have the fire extinguisher, but the radiator's got to stay."

Nuns At The Gate
    Three nuns are killed in a car accident and soon appear at the gates of Heaven expecting to gain entry. St. Peter greets them by saying, "Before you can enter, you must answer a question so that I may judge your worthiness."

    "Yes, St. Peter, we understand. Ask your questions."

    "Sister number one, who was the first woman on earth?"

    "Eve" came the reply.

    "Right you are. Enter. Now, Sister number two, who was the first man on earth?"

    "Adam" she replied.

    "Right you are, Sister. Enter. Now, sister number three, because you are a Mother Superior, this question will be more difficult. What were the first words Eve said to Adam?"

    The Mother Superior thought and said, "My that's a hard one."

    "Right you are! Go on in!"

Blond With Cell Phone
    A man bought his wife, a blond, a cell phone for Christmas. He showed her how to use it and what each button did. The next day day he called her to test it out. He asked her how the reception was, if there were any problems with it; and she replied that she could hear him clearly and with no problems. "But", she said, "How did you know I was at Walmart?"

Random Thoughts
    Spotted on the back of a T-shirt worn by LAPD Bomb Squad: "If you see me running, try to keep up."

    Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

    You have the right to remain silent anything you say will be misquoted, then used against you.

    Should you trust a stockbroker who's married to a travel agent?

    A closed mouth gathers no feet.

    Don't you think it's unnerving that doctors call what they do "practice"?

    Did you ever notice that Evian bottled water is Naive spelled backwards? Think about it . . .

    Seduce my mind & you can have my body, find my soul & I'm your forever.

    The grass may actually be greener on the other side of the fence, but it still has to be mowed.

    A man and his wife were in bed one night when they were awakened by a loud noise outside their front door. The wife wanted her husband to go downstairs and see what it was, but he didn't want to. After she nagged him for a few minutes, he finally agreed. On his way down the stairs, someone knocked loudly on the front door. When the man got to the door, he opened it, and saw a man standing outside, obviously inebriated. Thoroughly annoyed, the husband asked the drunk what he wanted.

    The drunk said, "You gotta help me. I need a push." The man refused, but the drunk insisted, "I really need a push."

    "No," the man replied. "It's nearly 2am, and you're drunk. You shouldn't be driving, anyway."

    The drunk responded, "You don't understand. I just need a push."

    Finally, the man slammed the door in the drunk's face and went back to bed.

    When he got there, his wife asked him who it was. When he told her, she insisted that he go back downstairs and give the man a push. "After all," she said, "what if one day we are stranded and need a push?"

    Not fully buying into her logic, but needing another nagging even less, the man tromped downstairs, grumbling all the way. He opened the front door, and the drunk was nowhere to be seen. He yelled, "HEY! Drunk guy! Are you still out here?"

    He heard the reply, "Yeah!" from the back yard.

    "Do you still need a push?"


    "Where are you?"

    "Over here, on your swings!"

Atomic Humor
    Two atoms walk into a bar and sit down, order beers, and start talking. "Uh-oh," says one. "What's wrong?" asks the other. "I think I lost an electron," says the first. "That's terrible! Are you sure?" asks the other. "Yes," replies the first atom, "I'm positive!"

    A neutron walks into a bar and orders a beer. He drinks it and gets up to leave. He asks the bartender, "How much to I owe you?" The bartender looks at the neutron and says, "For you? No charge."

    Before you criticize someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way you're a mile away, and you have their shoes too.

    The early bird gets the worm, but the early worm gets eaten.

    If you can smile when things go wrong, you have someone in mind to blame.

    Never wrestle with a pig: You both get dirty, and the pig likes it.

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

    "Sometimes a scream is better than a thesis." --Ralph Waldo Emerson

    "Anything that is too stupid to be spoken is sung." -- Voltaire

    "When choosing between two evils, I always like to try the one I've never tried before." -- Mae West

    "If I were two-faced, would I be wearing this one?" -- Abraham Lincoln

    I belong to Bridegrooms Anonymous. Whenever I feel like getting married, they send over a lady in a housecoat and hair curlers to burn my toast for me.

    The trouble with the rat-race is that even if you win, you're still a rat.

    A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking.

    Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said.

    Education is what you get from reading the fine print. Experience is what you get from not reading it.

    Traffic signals in New York are just rough guidelines.

    For people who like peace and quiet -- a phoneless cord.

    The easiest way to find something lost around the house is to buy a replacement.

    There are two kinds of pedestrians -- the quick and the dead.

    Some people are going to leave a mark on this world, while others will leave a stain.

    Don't be so humble, you're not that great.

The Pilsbury Doughboy's Obituary
    Veteran Pillsbury spokes-model Pop N. Fresh died yesterday of a severe yeast infection. He was 71. Fresh was buried in one of the largest funeral ceremonies in recent years. Dozens of celebrities turned out including Mrs. Butterworth, the California Raisins, Hungry Jack, Betty Crocker, Chef Boyardee, and the Hostess Twinkies.

    The grave site was piled high with flours as longtime friend Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy, describing Fresh as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Fresh rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with many turnovers.

    He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Still, even as a crusty old man, he was a roll model for millions.

    The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

Men Are Like
    Men are like . . . placemats.
    They only show up when there's food on the table.

    Men are like . . . mascara.
    They usually run at the first sign of emotion.

    Men are like . . . bike helmets.
    Handy in an emergency, but otherwise they just look silly.

    Men are like . . . government bonds.
    They take so long to mature.

    Men are like . . . parking spots.
    The good ones are taken, and the rest are too small.

    Men are like . . . copiers.
    You need them for reproduction, but that's about it.

    Men are like . . . Lava Lamps.
    Fun to look at, but not all that bright.

    Men are like . . . bank accounts.
    Without a lot of money, they don't generate much interest.

    Men are like . . . high heels.
    They're easy to walk on once you get the hang of it.

    Men are like . . . curling irons.
    They're always hot, and they're always in your hair.

    Men are like . . . mini skirts.
    If you're not careful, they'll creep up your legs.

    Men are like . . . bananas.
    The older they get, the less firm they are.

    Atheism is a non-prophet organization.

    National Atheism Day: April 1st

    Anywhere is walking distance, if you've got the time.

    Giving money and power to government is like giving whiskey and car keys to teenage boys.

    One of the advantages of being disorderly is that one is constantly making exciting discoveries.

    You probably wouldn't worry about what people think of you if you could know how seldom they do.

    Military intelligence is a contradiction in terms.

    Never judge a book by its movie.

    If you can't annoy somebody, there's little point in writing.

This Is Your Captain Speaking
    "There may be 50 ways to leave your lover, but there are only 4 ways out of this airplane

    "Your seat cushions can be used for floatation, and in the event of an emergency water landing, please take them with our compliments."

    "We do feature a smoking section on this flight; if you must smoke, contact a member of the flight crew and we will escort you out to the wing of the airplane."

    Pilot - "Folks, we have reached our cruising altitude now, so I am going to switch the seat belt sign off. Feel free to move about as you wish, but please stay inside the plane till we land . . . it's a bit cold outside, and if you walk on the wings it affects the flight pattern."

    As we waited just off the runway for another airliner to cross in front of us some of the passengers were beginning to retrieve luggage from the overhead bins. The head attendant announced on the intercom, "This aircraft is equipped with a video surveillance system that monitors the cabin during taxiing. Any passengers not remaining in their seats until the aircraft comes to a full and complete stop at the gate will be strip-searched as they leave the aircraft."

    As the plane landed and was coming to a stop at Washington National, a lone voice comes over the loudspeaker: "Whoa, big fella . . . WHOA!"

    An airline pilot wrote that on this particular flight he had hammered his ship into the runway really hard. The airline had a policy which required the first officer to stand at the door while the passengers exited, give a smile, and a "Thanks for flying XYZ airline." He said that in light of his bad landing, he had a hard time looking the passengers in the eye, thinking that someone would have a smart comment. Finally everyone had gotten off except for this little old lady walking with a cane. She said, "Sonny, mind if I ask you a question?" "Why no Ma'am," said the pilot, "what is it?" The little old lady said, "Did we land or were we shot down?"

    From a Southwest Airlines employee: "Welcome aboard SouthwestFlight XXX, to YYY. To operate your seatbelt, insert the metal tab into the buckle, and pull tight. It works just like every other seatbelt, and if you don't know how to operate one, you probably shouldn't be out in public unsupervised.

    In the event of a sudden loss of cabin pressure, oxygen masks will descend from the ceiling. Stop screaming, grab the mask, and pull it over your face. If you have a small child traveling with you, secure your mask before assisting with theirs. If you are traveling with two small children, decide now which one you love more.

    Weather at our destination is 50 degrees with some broken clouds, but they'll try to have them fixed before we arrive.

    Thank you, and remember, nobody loves you, or your money, more than Southwest Airlines."

    Overheard on an American Airlines flight into Amarillo, Texas, in a particularly windy and bumpy day. During the final approach the Captain was really having to fight it. After an extremely hard landing, the Flight Attendant came on the PA and announced, Ladies and Gentlemen, welcome to Amarillo. Please remain in your seats with your seatbelts fastened while the Captain taxis what's left of our airplane to the gate!"

    Another flight Attendant's comment on a less than perfect landing: "We ask you to please remain seated as Captain Kangaroo bounces us to the terminal."
