    Black and White
    (Under age 40? You won't understand.)

    You could hardly see for all the snow,
    Spread the rabbit ears as far as they go.
    Pull a chair up to the TV set,
    "Good Night, David. Good Night, Chet."

    My Mom used to cut chicken, chop eggs and spread mayo on the same cutting board with the same knife and no bleach, but we didn't seem to get food poisoning.

    My Mom used to defrost hamburger on the counter AND I used to eat it raw sometimes, too. Our school sandwiches were wrapped in wax paper in a brown paper bag, not in ice-pack coolers, but I can't remember getting e.coli.

    Almost all of us would have rather gone swimming in the lake instead of a pristine pool (talk about boring), no beach closures then.

    The term cell phone would have conjured up a phone in a jail cell, and a pager was the school PA system.

    We all took gym, not PE ... and risked permanent injury with a pair of high top Ked's (only worn in gym) instead of having cross-training athletic shoes with air cushion soles and built in light reflectors. I can't recall any injuries but they must have happened because they tell us how much safer we are now.

    Flunking gym was not an option . even for stupid kids! I guess PE must be much harder than gym.

    Speaking of school, we all said prayers and sang the national anthem, and staying in detention after school caught all sorts of negative attention.

    We must have had horribly damaged psyches. What an archaic health system we had then. Remember school nurses? Ours wore a hat and everything.

    I thought that I was supposed to accomplish something before I was allowed to be proud of myself.

    I just can't recall how bored we were without computers, Play Station, Nintendo, X-box or 270 digital TV cable stations.

    Oh yeah ... and where was the Benadryl and sterilization kit when I got that bee sting? I could have been killed!

    We played 'king of the hill' on piles of gravel left on vacant construction sites, and when we got hurt, Mom pulled out the 48-cent bottle of Mercurochrome (kids liked it better because it didn't sting like iodine did) and then we got our butt spanked.

    Now it's a trip to the emergency room, followed by a 10-day dose of a $49 bottle of antibiotics, and then Mom calls the attorney to sue the contractor for leaving a horribly vicious pile of gravel where it was such a threat.

    We didn't act up at the neighbor's house either because if we did, we got our butt spanked there and then we got butt spanked again when we got home.

    I recall Donny Reynolds from next door coming over and doing his tricks on the front stoop, just before he fell off. Little did his Mom know that she could have owned our house. Instead, she picked him up and swatted him for being such a goof. It was a neighborhood run amuck.

    To top it off, not a single person I knew had ever been told that they were from a dysfunctional family. How could we possibly have known that?

    We needed to get into group therapy and anger management classes? We were obviously so duped by so many societal ills that we didn't even notice that the entire country wasn't taking Prozac! How did we ever survive?

    Talkative Wife (***Heavily Sanitized***)

    A police officer pulls over a speeding car. The officer
    says, "I clocked you at 80 miles per hour, sir."

    The driver says, "Gee, officer I had it on cruise control
    at 60, perhaps your radar gun needs calibrating."

    Not looking up from her knitting the wife says: "Now don't
    be silly dear, you know that this car doesn't have cruise

    As the officer writes out the ticket, the driver looks
    over at his wife and growls, "Can't you please keep
    your darn mouth shut for once?"

    The wife smiles demurely and says, "You should be
    thankful your radar detector went off when it did."

    As the officer makes out the second ticket for the
    illegal radar detector unit, the man glowers at his
    wife and says through clenched teeth, "Darnit,
    can't you keep your mouth shut?"

    The officer frowns and says, "And I notice that you're
    not wearing your seat belt, sir. That's an automatic
    $75 fine."

    The driver says, "Yeah, well, you see officer, I had it
    on, but took it off when you pulled me over so that I
    could get my license out of my back pocket."

    The wife says, "Now, dear, you know very well that you
    didn't have your seat belt on. You never wear your seat
    belt when you're driving."

    And as the police officer is writing out the third
    ticket the driver turns to his wife and barks, "WHY

    The officer looks over at the woman and asks, "Does
    your husband always talk to you this way, Ma'am?"

    "Only when he's been drinking."

    1. If you are choking on an ice cube, don't panic.
    Simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat and
    presto, the blockage will be almost instantly removed.

    2. Clumsy? Avoid cutting yourself while slicing
    vegetables by getting someone else to hold them while
    you chop away.

    3. You can avoid arguments with the Mrs. about lifting
    the toilet seat. just use the sink.

    4. For high blood pressure sufferers: simply cut
    yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the
    pressure in your veins. Remember to use an egg timer.

    5. A mouse trap placed on top of your alarm clock will
    prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep
    after you hit the snooze button.

    6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of
    laxatives. Then you will be afraid to cough.

    7. Have a bad toothache? Smash your thumb with a
    hammer and you will forget all about the toothache.

    8. Sometimes, we just need to remember what the rules
    of life really are:

    In life, you only need two tools - WD-40 and Duct
    If it doesn't move but should, use the WD-40.
    If it should not move and does, use the duct tape.

    9. Remember: Everyone seems normal until you get to
    know them.

    1. Go to a second-hand store and buy a pair of men's used size 14-16 Work boots.

    2. Place them on your front porch, along with several empty beer cans, a copy of Guns & Ammo magazine and several NRA magazines. ; ;

    3. Put a few giant dog dishes next to the boots and magazine.

    4. Leave a note on your door that reads:

    "Hey Bubba, Big Jim, Duke and Slim, I went to the gun shop for more ammunition. Back in an hour. Don't mess with the pit bulls -- they attacked the mailman this morning and messed him up real bad. I don't think Killer took part in it but it was hard to tell from all the blood. "PS - I locked all four of 'em in the house. Better wait outside.

    Rules of the West

    They are as follows!!!
    1. Pull your droopy pants up. You look like an idiot.
    2. Turn your cap right, your head ain't crooked.
    3. Let's get this straight; it's called a "gravel road." I drive a
    pickup truck because I want to. No matter how slow you drive, you're
    going to get dust on your Lexus. Drive it or get out of the way.
    4. They are cattle. That's why they smell to you. They smell like
    money to us. Get over it. Don't like it? I-40 goes east and west, I-65
    goes north and south. Pick one.
    5. So you have a $60,000 car. We're impressed. We have $250,000
    combines that are driven only 3 weeks a year.
    6. So every person in the Wild West waves. It's called being
    friendly. Understand the concept.
    7. If that cell phone rings while a bunch of doves are coming in, we
    WILL shoot it out of your hand. You better hope you don't have it up to
    your ear at the time.
    8. Yeah, we eat trout, salmon, deer and elk. You really want sushi &
    caviar? It's available at the corner bait shop.
    9. The "Opener" refers to the first day of deer season. It's a
    religious holiday held the closest Saturday to the first of November. 10.
    We open doors for women. That is applied to all women, regardless
    of age.
    11. No, there's no "vegetarian special" on the menu. Order steak, or
    you can order the Chef's Salad and pick off the 2 pounds of ham &
    12. When we fill out a table, there are three main dishes: meats,
    vegetables, and breads. We use three spices: salt, pepper, and ketchup!
    Oh, yeah.... We don't care what you folks in Cincinnati call that stuff
    you eat... IT AIN'T REAL CHILI!!
    13. You bring "coke" into my house, it better be brown, wet and
    over ice. You bring "Mary Jane" into my house, she better be cute, know
    how to shoot, drive a truck, and have long hair.
    14. College and High School Football is as important here as the
    and the Knicks, and a dang site more fun to watch.
    15. Yeah, we have golf courses. But don't hit the water hazards -- it
    spooks the fish.
    16. Colleges? We have them all over. We have State Universities,
    Universities, and Vo-techs. They come outta there with an education
    plus a love for God and country, and they still wave at everybody when they come home for the holidays.
    17. We have more folks in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. So
    don't mess with us. If you do, you will get whipped by the best.
    18. Turn down that blasted car stereo! That thumpity-thump crap ain't
    music, anyway. We don't want to hear it anymore than we want to see
    your boxers! Refer back to #1!

    A blonde called her boyfriend and said, "Please come over here and help me. I have a killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure it out or how to get it started."

    Her boyfriend asked, "What is it supposed to be when it's finished?"

    The blonde said, "According to the picture on the box, it's a tiger."

    Her boyfriend decided to go over and help with the puzzle. She let him in and showed him where she had the puzzle spread all over the table. He studied the pieces for a moment, then looked at the box.

    He turned to her and said, "First of all, no matter what we do, we're not going to be able to assemble these pieces into anything resembling a tiger.

    He took her hand and said, "Second, I want you to relax. Let's have a nice cup of hot chocolate and then............", he sighed,




    .... "Let's put all these frosted flakes back in the box."

    Sid and Mundo were sitting in a Mexican restaurant. "Sid," asked Mundo, "Are there any Jews in Mexico?"
    I don't know," Mundo replied. "Why don't we ask the waiter?"
    When the waiter came by, Mundo asked him, "Are there any Mexican Jews?"
    "I don't know sir, let me ask," the waiter replied, and he went into the kitchen. He returned in a few minutes and said, "No, sir. No Mexican Jews."
    "Are you sure?" Mundo asked.
    "I will check again, sir." the waiter replied and went back to the kitchen.
    While he was still gone, Sid said, "I cannot believe there are no Jews in Mexico. Our people are scattered everywhere."
    When the waiter returned he said, "Sir, no Mexican Jews."
    "Are you really sure?" Mundo asked again. "I cannot believe there are no Mexican Jews."
    "Sir, I ask everyone," the waiter replied exasperated. "We have orange Jews, prune Jews, tomato Jews, and grape Jews, but no one ever hear of Mexican Jews!"

    Corporate Lesson 1 :
    A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next door neighbor. Before she says a word, Bob says, "I'll give you $800 to drop that towel,". After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob. After a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 dollars and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, "Who was that?"
    "It was Bob the next door neighbor," she replies.
    "Great!" the husband says, "did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?"

    Moral of the story: If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent
    avoidable exposure.

    Corporate Lesson 2:
    A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out. The Genie says, "I'll give each of you just one wish." "Me first! Me first!" says the admin. clerk. "I want to be in the Bahamas , driving a speedboat, without a care in the world." Poof! She's gone. "Me next! Me next!" says the sales rep. "I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life. " Poof! He's gone. "OK, you're up," the Genie says to the manager.The manager says, "I want those two back in the office after lunch."
    Moral of the story: Always let your boss have the first say.

    Corporate Lesson 3:
    A crow was sitting on a tree, doing nothing all day. A rabbit asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing all day long?"
    The crow answered: "Sure, why not." So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the crow, and rested. A fox jumped on the rabbit and ate it.
    Moral of the story: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very high up.

    Corporate Lesson 4:
    A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to Get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, but I haven't got the energy."
    "Well, why don't you nibble on my droppings?" replied the bull." They're packed with nutrients." The turkey pecked at a lump of dung and found that it gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, there he was proudly perched at the top of the tree. Soon he was spotted by a farmer, who shot the turkey out of the tree.

    Moral of the story: BS might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.

    A 60 year old man went to a doctor for a check-up. The doctor told him, "You're in terrific shape. There's nothing wrong with you. Why, you might live forever; you have the body of a 35 year old. By the way, how old was your father when he died?"

    The 60 year old responded, "Did I say he was dead?" The doctor was surprised and asked, "How old is he and is he very active?"

    The 60 year old responded, "Well, he is 82 years old and he still goes skiing three times a season and surfing three times a week during the summer."

    The doctor couldn't believe it! So he said, "Well, how old was your grandfather when he died?"

    The 60 year old responded again, "Did I say he was dead?"

    The doctor was astonished. He said, "You mean to tell me you are 60 years old and both your father and your grandfather are alive? Is your grandfather very active?"

    The 60 year old said, "He goes skiing at least once a season and surfing once a week during the summer. Not only that," said the patient, "my grandfather is 106 years old, and next week he is getting married again."

    The doctor said, "At 106 years why on earth would your grandfather want to get married?"

    His patient looked up at the doctor and said, "Did I say he wanted to?"

    Guy gets on a plane and finds himself seated next to a cute

    blonde. He immediately turns to her and makes his move.

    "You know," he says, "I've heard that flights will go

    quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellow

    passenger. So let's talk."

    The blonde, who had just opened her book, closes it slowly

    and says to the guy, "What would you like to discuss?" "Oh,

    I don't know," says the guy. "How about nuclear power?"

    "OK," says the blonde. "That could be an interesting topic.

    But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a

    deer all eat the same stuff - grass. Yet the deer excretes

    little pellets, the cow turns out a flat patty, and the

    horse produces muffins of dried poop. Why do you suppose

    that is?"

    The guy is dumbfounded. Finally he replies, "I haven't the

    slightest idea." "So tell me," says the blonde, "How is it

    that you feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you

    don't know poop?"
