How To Handle Telemarketers
    If they start out with, "How are you today?" say, "Why do you want to know?"

    Alternately, you can tell them, "I am so glad you asked, because no one these days seems to care, and I have all these problems; my arthritis is acting up, my eyelashes are sore, my dog just died..." When they try to get to the sell, just keep talking about your problems.

    If the caller says he's John Doe from XYZ Company, ask him to spell his name. Then ask him to spell the company name. Then ask where it's located. Continue asking personal questions or questions about the company for as long as necessary.

    Cry out in surprise, "Judy! Is that you? Oh my gosh! Judy, how have you been?" Hopefully, this will give Judy a few brief moments of terror as she tries to figure out where the heck she could know you from.

    Say, "No," over and over. Be sure to vary the sound of each one, and keep a rhythmic tempo, even as they are trying to speak. This is most fun if you can do it until they hang up.

    After the telemarketer gives their spiel, ask him/her to marry you. When they get all flustered, tell them that you couldn't just give your credit card number to a complete stranger.

    As soon as you realize it's a telemarketer, set the receiver down, scream, "Oh my God!" and hang up.

    Tell the telemarketer you are busy at the moment and ask them if they will give you their home phone number so you can call them back. When the Telemarketer explains that they cannot give out their home number, you say, "I guess you don't want anyone bothering you at home, right?" The telemarketer will agree and you say, "Now you know how I feel!" Hang up.

    Ask them to repeat everything they say, several times.

    Tell them it is dinnertime, but ask if they would please hold. Put them on your speakerphone while you continue to eat at your leisure. Smack your food loudly and continue with your dinner conversation.

    Insist that the caller is really your buddy Leon, playing a joke. "Come on Leon, cut it out! Seriously, Leon. How's your momma?"

    Tell them to talk very slowly, because you want to write down every word.

Quotes From Madonna
    If I weren't as talented as I am ambitious, I would be a gross monstrosity.

    Manipulating people, that's what I'm good at.

    I always want more. That's me. I'm a bitch.

    I always said I wanted to be famous. I just love all the glamour and the attention.

    I've always known this was going to happen to me. My success was something that was meant to be.

    I wouldn't have turned out the way I was if I didn't have all those good old fashioned values to rebel against.

    Shut up so I can talk!

    Power is a great aphrodisiac, and I'm a very powerful person.

    Losing my virginity was a career move.

    Where other people are obsessed with the idea that I am always reinventing myself, I'd rather think that I'm shedding my layers, and slowly revealing myself. It feels to me like I'm just getting closer to the core of who I really am.

    I am my own painting. I am my own experiment. So, I am my own work of art.

Eat!
    The Japanese eat very little fat, lots of vegetables and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

    On the other hand, the French eat a lot of fat, rich cream sauces and pastries, drink very fancy red and white wines and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

    The Chinese drink very little red wine, no cheese or sweets and suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

    The Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine, eat lots of pasta in rich cheese sauces and also suffer fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

    The Germans eat excessive amounts of red meat and drink a lot of beer, schnapps, wine and also have fewer heart attacks than the British or Americans.

    Conclusion: Eat and drink what you like. It's speaking English that kills you!

Strawberries
    Cooperman sold strawberries off his truck out in the suburbs. He knocked on the door of a house.

    "Wanna buy some strawberries?"

    "Come around back," answered the pretty young blonde.

    Cooperman walked to the rear, rang the bell, and the woman opened the door. To Cooperman's shock, she stood there stark naked. Not a stitch of clothes on. Cooperman started to cry.

    "What's the matter?" asked the blonde.

    "Today, my wife ran away with my best friend," explained Cooperman, "I lost three thousand dollars on the stock market, and now you're gonna screw me out of my strawberries."

Steven Wright Quotes
    For my birthday I got a humidifier and a dehumidifier. I put them in the same room and let them fight it out.

    I hate it when my foot falls asleep during the day because that means it's going to be up all night.

    I bought a dog the other day. I named him Stay. It's fun to call him, "Come here, Stay! Come here, Stay!" He went insane. Now he just ignores me and keeps typing.

    I stayed up all night playing poker with tarot cards. I got a full house and four people died.

    It doesn't matter what temperature the room is, it's always room temperature.

    A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me -- I'm afraid of widths.

    I just bought a microwave fireplace. You can spend an entire evening in front of it in only eight minutes.

    Last year I went fishing with Salvador Dali. He was using a dotted line. He caught every other fish.

    When I turned two I was really anxious, because I'd doubled my age in a year. I thought, if this keeps up, by the time I'm six I'll be ninety.

    I bought some land. It was kind of cheap. It was on somebody else's property.

    The guy who lives across the street from me has a circular driveway, and he can't get out.

    I bought some batteries, but they weren't included, so I had to buy them again.

    Babies don't need a vacation. But I still see them at the beach. It pisses me off. When no one's looking I'll go over to a baby and ask, "What are you doing here? You haven't worked a day in your life."

    I went to a general store, but they wouldn't let me buy any thing specific.

Men's Rules
    These are our rules! Please note . . . these are all numbered "1" ON PURPOSE!

    1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down.

    1. Birthdays, Valentines, and Anniversaries are not quests to see if we can find the perfect present yet again!

    1. Sometimes, we are not thinking about you. Live with it.

    1. Do not ask us what we are thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as navel lint, the shotgun formation, and NASCAR.

    1. Sunday = sports. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.

    1. Shopping is NOT a sport, and no, we are never going to think of it that way.

    1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine. Really.

    1. Crying is blackmail.

    1. Ask for what you want. Let us be clear on this one: Subtle hints do not work. Strong hints do not work. Obvious do not work. Just say it!

    1. We don't remember dates. Mark birthdays and anniversaries on a calendar. Remind us frequently beforehand.

    1. Most guys own three pairs of shoes - tops. What makes you think we'd be any good at choosing which pair, out of thirty, would look good with your dress?

    1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

    1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do. Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

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

    1. Check your own oil! . Please.

    1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. In fact, all comments become null and void after 7 days.

    1. If you won't dress like the Victoria's Secret girls, don't expect us to act like soap opera guys.

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

    1. Let us ogle. We are going to look anyway; it's genetic.

    1. You can either ask us to do something or tell us how you want it done - not both. If you already know best how to do t do it yourself.

    1. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during Commercials.

    1. Christopher Columbus did not need directions, and neither do we.

    1. The relationship is never going to be like it was the first two months we were going out. Get over it. And quit whining to your girlfriends.

    1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings. Peach, for example, is a fruit, not a color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve is.

    1. If it itches, it will be scratched. We do that.

    1. We are not mind readers and we never will be. Our lack of mind reading ability is not proof of how little we care about you.

    1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," we will act like nothing's wrong. We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

    1. I'm in shape. - ROUND is a shape.

Little Johnny's Fire Engine
    A businessman was strolling down the street one day when he noticed that Little Johnny was wearing a red fireman's hat and sitting in a red wagon. Strangely, it looked like the wagon was being pulled rather slowly by a huge Labrador.

    When he got closer to the kid, he noticed Little Johnny had tied a rope, very tightly, around the male dog's sex organs, which would obviously account for why the dog was walking in such a gingerly manner.

    He looked at Johnny and smiled. "Son, that's a great looking fire engine you got there, but I'm sure the dog would pull you much faster if you tied the rope around his neck."

    "Yeah," Johnny replied, "but then I wouldn't have a siren!"

The Sweet Smell
    There was once a great actor who could no longer remember his lines. After several years of searching, he finally finds a theatre where they seem prepared to give him a chance to shine again.

    The director says, "This is the most important part, and it has only one line. At the opening you walk on stage carrying a rose. You hold the rose to your nose with just one finger and thumb, sniff the rose deeply and then say the line 'Ah, the sweet aroma of my mistress.'"

    The actor is thrilled. All day long before the play, he's practicing his line over and over again. Finally, the time comes. The curtain goes up, the actor walks onto the stage, and with great passion delivers the line, "Ah, the sweet aroma of my mistress."

    The theatre erupts. The audience is screaming with laughter, but the director is steaming.

    "You idiot!" he cries. "You've ruined me!"

    The actor is bewildered, "What happened, did I forget my line?"

    "No!" screams the director. "You forgot the rose!"

More Writers
    If there's a book you really want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it. -- Toni Morrison

    What I like in a good author is not what he says, but what he whispers. -- Logan Pearsall Smith

    The act of putting pen to paper encourages pause for thought, this in turn makes us think more deeply about life, which helps us regain our equilibrium. -- Norbet Platt

    It is necessary to write, if the days are not to slip emptily by. How else, indeed, to clap the net over the butterfly of the moment? For the moment passes, it is forgotten; the mood is gone; life itself is gone. That is where the writer scores over his fellows: he catches the changes of his mind on the hop. -- Vita Sackville-West

    Writing became such a process of discovery that I couldn't wait to get to work in the morning: I wanted to know what I was going to say. -- Sharon O'Brien

    Substitute "damn" every time you're inclined to write "very;" your editor will delete it and the writing will be just as it should be. -- Mark Twain

    I'm not a very good writer, but I'm an excellent rewriter. -- James Michener

    The time to begin writing an article is when you have finished it to your satisfaction. By that time you begin to clearly and logically perceive what it is you really want to say. -- Mark Twain

    The wastebasket is a writer's best friend. -- Isaac Bashevis Singer

Writers
    You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you. -- Ray Bradbury

    So often is the virgin sheet of paper more real than what one has to say, and so often one regrets having marred it. -- Harold Acton

    The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say. -- Anaïs Nin

    Writing is a socially acceptable form of schizophrenia. -- E.L. Doctorow

    A word is not the same with one writer as with another. One tears it from his guts. The other pulls it out of his overcoat pocket. -- Charles Peguy

    Writing is easy. All you have to do is sit at a typewriter and open a vein. -- Walter Wellesley "Red" Smith

    And by the way, everything in life is writable about if you have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt. -- Sylvia Plath

    I would hurl words into this darkness and wait for an echo, and if an echo sounded, no matter how faintly, I would send other words to tell, to march, to fight, to create a sense of hunger for life that gnaws in us all. -- Richard Wright

    I try to leave out the parts that people skip. -- Elmore Leonard

Still More Sheep
    This guy is shipwrecked on a desert island and is feeling really depressed. The island has fruit and everything he can eat, but he is dying for some sex and so one day he goes looking for something to screw. About an hour later, he stumbles across a clearing he has never seen before and sitting there is a sheep and a dog.

    "Well," he thinks, "it's my lucky day!" and he takes the two of them back to his cave. Later that day he decides to take the sheep as he thinks it'll be more docile than the dog. Just as he gets up behind the sheep, the dog runs over and starts attacking him. He backs off and the dog calms down. Later on he tries again but the dog does exactly the same thing. This goes on for about two months and it gets to the stage that he is absolutely desperate.

    One day, he sees something floating on the water towards him. He swims out to find an amazingly beautiful woman on a raft who has survived a sinking ship. He manages to get hold of the raft and take it back to his island. When he gets there the woman says, "You saved my life. I am indebted to you forever. Anything you want me to do, you just name it."

    He's starved for sex, so he says, "Well, there is one thing . . . "

    "Tell me what it is, I'll do anything for you."

    "Can you just hold this damned dog back for two minutes?"

More Sheep
    Two farmers were talking about their sheep. The first farmer says "I'm not having any luck getting these sheep to breed."

    The second farmer replies, "You have to do it yourself if you want any results."

    "What do you mean?" the first farmer asks curiously.

    "It's simple. Load them up in your lorry, take them around behind the barn, and do the business. Wait about three days, and you should see them start to act peculiarly."

    So the first farmer thinks about this, then decides he's going to do it. The next day, he loads the sheep up in the lorry, drives them out behind the barn and proceeds to screw each one in succession.

    Three days pass and he's sitting in the kitchen with his wife.

    "Look out of the window and tell me if those sheep are acting peculiarly," says the farmer to his wife.

    "Nothing unusual" the wife responds.

    Upset, the farmer loads them up in the lorry the next day, drives them out behind the barn, and goes to town on them again. Three more days pass.

    "Those sheep doing anything funny?" says the farmer to his wife, sitting in the kitchen.

    "Nope." she responds.

    Pissed off, the farmer decides to give it one more try. The very next day he loads them up in the lorry, drives them out behind the barn, and really screws their brains out. Three days pass, and once again he's sitting in the kitchen with his wife.

    "Those sheep doing anything peculiar?" he asks, hopefully.

    "As a matter of fact, yes.", replies the wife. "They're all sitting in the lorry, and one of them is honking the horn."

Sheep
    In the old Wild West, a Eastern newspaper correspondent had just arrived in a new Western town when he noticed a curious lack of women. Walking into the local saloon he asked a cowboy, "What do you fellas do around here for entertainment?"

    "Ya mean women?" asked the cowboy. "We ain't got none. 'Round here, we do sheep."

    "That's disgusting," cried the correspondent, "I've never heard of such moral degradation."

    However, after a few months, the correspondent had become very frustrated and the sheep were looking better and better. So he finally went out and found himself a comely sheep, brought her back to his room, shampooed her and then tied ribbons in her hair. After a bottle of champagne, he lured the sheep into his bedchamber and released his pent-up frustrations.

    Afterward, he escorted his four-legged lover to the saloon for a drink. As the correspondent and his wooly mate entered, a hush fell over the patrons and the anxious couple became the object of many stares.

    "You goddamn bunch of hypocrites!" the reporter yelled. "You've all been doing sheep for years, but when I do it up right you look at me like I'm some sort of crazy pervert!"

    One cowboy spoke up, "Yeah, but that's the sheriff's gal!"

From George Carlin
    The other night I ate at a real nice family restaurant. Every table had an argument going.

    If the shoe fits, get another one just like it.

    McDonald's breakfast for under a dollar' actually costs much more than that. You have to factor in the cost of coronary bypass surgery.

    Recently, in a public bathroom, I used the handicapped stall. As I emerged, a man in a wheelchair asked me indignantly, "Are you handicapped?" Gathering all my aplomb, I looked him in the eye and said, "Not now. But I was before I went in there."

    There is something refreshingly ironic about people lying on the beach contracting skin cancer in an attempt to acquire a purely illusory appearance of good health, while germ-laden medical waste washes up on the sand all around them.

    I think we should attack Russia now. They'd never expect it.

    Honesty may be the best policy, but it's important to remember that apparently, by elimination, dishonesty is the second-best policy.

    Some people see things that are and ask, Why? Some people dream of things that never were and ask, Why not? Some people have to go to work and don't have time for all that shit.

    Who says life is sacred -- God? Hey, if you read your history, God is one of the leading causes of death.

    A lot of times when they catch a guy who killed twenty-seven people, they say, "He was a loner." Well, of course he was a loner; he killed everyone he came in contact with.

    Whenever I hear about a peacekeeping force, I wonder: If they're so interested in peace, why do they use force?

    Most people work just hard enough not to get fired and get paid just enough money not to quit.
