The Perfect Breakfast:
* You're sitting at the table and your son is on the cover of the box of
Wheaties.
* Your mistress is on the cover of Playboy.
* Your wife is on the back of the milk carton.






Four men went golfing one day.Three of them headed to the first tee
and  the fourth went into the clubhouse to take care of the bill.
The three men started talking and bragging about their sons.
The first man told the others, "My son is a home builder, and he is so
successful that he gave a friend a new home for free,"
The second man said, "my son was a car salesman, and now he owns a
multiline dealership. He's so successful that he gave a friend a new Mercedes,
fully loaded," The third man, not wanting to be outdone, bragged,
"My son is a stockbroker, and he's doing so well that he gave his friend
an entire portfolio."
The fourth man joined them on the tee after a few minutes of taking care
of business. The first man mentioned, "We were just talking about our sons.
How's
yours doing?"  The fourth man replied, "Well, my son is gay and dances in a 
gay
bar."
The other three men grew silent as he continued.
"I'm not totally thrilled about the dancing job, but he must be doing
good. His last three boyfriends gave him a house, a brand new Mercedes, and a
stock portfolio.





Flying, anyone?


Rules Of The Air

1. Every takeoff is optional. Every landing is mandatory.

2. If you push the stick forward, the houses get bigger. If you pull the
stick back, they get
smaller. That is, unless you keep pulling the stick all the way back,
then they get bigger
again.

3. Flying isn't dangerous. Crashing is what's dangerous.

4. It's always better to be down here wishing you were up there than up
there wishing you were
down here.

5. The ONLY time you have too much fuel is when you're on fire.

6. The propeller is just a big fan in front of the plane used to keep
the pilot cool. When it
stops, you can actually watch the pilot start sweating.

7. When in doubt, hold on to your altitude. No one has ever collided
with the sky.

8. A 'good' landing is one from which you can walk away. A 'great'
landing is one after which
they can use the plane again.

9. Learn from the mistakes of others. You won't live long enough to make
all of them yourself.

10. You know you've landed with the wheels up if it takes full power to
taxi to the ramp.

11. The probability of survival is inversely proportional to the angle
of arrival. Large angle
of arrival, small probability of survival and vice versa.

12. Never let an aircraft take you somewhere your brain didn't get to
five minutes earlier.

13. Stay out of clouds. The silver lining everyone keeps talking about
might be another
airplane going in the opposite direction. Reliable sources also report
that mountains have been
known to hide out in clouds.

14. Always try to keep the number of landings you make equal to the
number of take offs you've
made.

15. There are three simple rules for making a smooth landing. 
Unfortunately no one knows what
they are.

16. You start with a bag full of luck and an empty bag of experience.
The trick is to fill the
bag of experience before you empty the bag of luck.

17. Helicopters can't fly; they're just so ugly the earth repels them.

18. If all you can see out of the window is ground that's going round
and round and all you can
hear is commotion coming from the passenger compartment, things are not
at all as they should
be.

19. In the ongoing battle between objects made of aluminum going
hundreds of miles per hour and
the ground going zero miles per hour, the ground has yet to lose.

20. Good judgment comes from experience. Unfortunately, the experience
usually comes from bad
judgment.

21. It's always a good idea to keep the pointy end going forward as much
as possible.

22. Keep looking around. There's always something you've missed.

23. Remember, gravity is not just a good idea. It's the law. And it's
not subject to repeal.

24. The three most useless things to a pilot are the altitude above you,
runway behind you, and
a tenth of a second ago.

A preacher was telling his congregation that anything they could
think of, old or new, was discussed somewhere in the Bible and that
the entirety of the human experience could be found there.

After the service, he was approached by a woman who said,
"Preacher, I don't believe the Bible mentions PMS."

The preacher replied that he was sure it must be there somewhere
and that he would look for it.

The following week after the service, the preacher called the woman
aside and showed her a passage which read ...

"...And Mary rode Joseph's ass all the way to Bethlehem."





And finally, for my critics:

A Lesson to Be Learned

 There once was a happy little fly buzzing around a barn one day,  when
she happened upon a large pile of fresh cow manure.
 Since it had  been hours since her last meal and she was feeling hunger
pangs, she flew  down to the irresistible delicacy and
                                       began to munch out.

                                           She ate...

                                           and ate...

                                           and then...

                                       she ate some more!!!

 Finally, she decided she'd had plenty. She washed her face with her
tiny front legs, belched a few times, and then attempted
 to fly  away. But alas,...she had pigged out far too much and could not
get off  the ground. She looked around wondering what
        to do about this  unpleasant situation when she spotted a
pitchfork leaning upright against  the barn wall.

                                      She'd found a solution!!

                    She realized if she could just become airborne she'd
be able to fly  again.

  So, she painstakingly, climbed to the top of the handle. Once there,
she took a deep breath, spread her tiny fly wings, and
             leaped confidently into the air.   She dropped like a rock
and splattered all over the floor.....

                                          Dead Fly.....

                                    The Moral of this sad story?

                         "Never fly off the handle when you know you're full 
of shit."
