  • The German air controllers at Frankfurt Airport are renowned as a
    short-tempered lot. They not only expect one to know one's gate parking
    location, but how to get there without any assistance from them. So it
    was with some amusement that we (a Pan Am 747) listened to the following
    exchange between Frankfurt ground control and a British Airways 747,
    call sign Speedbird 206.

    Speedbird 206: "Frankfurt, Speedbird 206 clear of active runway."

    Ground: "Speedbird 206. Taxi to gate Alpha One-Seven."

    The BA 747 pulled onto the main taxiway and slowed to a stop.

    Ground: "Speedbird, do you not know where you are going?"

    Speedbird 206: "Stand by, Ground, I'm looking up our gate location

    Ground (with quite arrogant impatience): "Speedbird 206, have you not
    been to Frankfurt before?"

    Speedbird 206 (coolly): "Yes, twice in 1944, but it was dark, and I
    didn't land."


    • A cowboy in Montana got pulled over by a State Trooper for speeding. The trooper started to lecture the cowboy about his speeding, and in general began to throw his weight around to
      try to make the cowboy feel uncomfortable.

      Finally, the trooper got around to writing out the ticket. As he was doing that, he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around his head.

      The cowboy said, "Having some problem with Circle flies there, are ya?"

      The trooper stopped writing the ticket and said, "Well yeah, if that's what they are. I never heard of Circle flies."

      So the cowboy says, "Well, circle flies are common on ranches. See, they're called circle flies because they're almost always found circling around the back end of a horse."

      The trooper says, "Oh," and goes back to writing the ticket.

      Then after a minute, he stops and says, "Are you trying to call me a horse's rear?"

      The cowboy says, "Oh no, officer. I have too much respect for law enforcement and police officers to even think about calling you a horse's rear."

      The trooper says, "Well that's a good thing," and goes back to writing the ticket.

      After a long pause, the cowboy says,"Hard to fool them flies though."


      • Jones came into the office an hour late for the third time in one week and
        found the boss waiting for him. "What's the story this time, Jones?" he
        asked sarcastically. "Let's hear a good excuse for a change."
        Jones sighed, "Everything went wrong this morning, Boss. The wife decided
        to drive me to the station. She got ready in ten minutes, but then the
        drawbridge got stuck. Rather than let you down, I swam across the river
        (look, my suit's still damp), ran out to the airport, got a ride on Mr.
        Thompson's helicopter, landed on top of Radio City Music Hall, and was
        carried here piggyback by one of the Rockettes."
        "You'll have to do better than that, Jones," said the boss, obviously
        disappointed. "No woman can get ready in ten minutes."


        • WIFE: "What would you do if I died? Would you get married again?"

          HUSBAND: "Definitely not!"

          WIFE: "Why not - don't you like being married?"

          HUSBAND: "Of course I do."

          WIFE: "Then why wouldn't you remarry?"

          HUSBAND: "Okay, I'd get married again."

          WIFE: "You would? (with a hurtful look on her face)."

          HUSBAND: (makes audible groan).

          WIFE: "Would you sleep with her in our bed?"

          HUSBAND: "Where else would we sleep?"

          WIFE: "Would you replace my pictures with hers?"

          HUSBAND: "That would seem like the proper thing to do."

          WIFE: "Would you play golf with her?"

          HUSBAND: "I guess so."

          WIFE: "Would she use my golf clubs?"

          HUSBAND: "No, she's left-handed."

          • At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated, "If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25.00 cars that got 1,000 miles to the gallon."

            In response to Bill's comments, General Motors issued a press release stating:

            If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the following characteristics:

            1. For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash twice a day.

            2. Every time they repainted the lines in the road, you would have to buy a new car.

            3. Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason. You would have to pull to the side of the road, close all of the windows, shut off the car,restart it, and reopen the windows before you could continue. For some reason you would simply accept this.

            4. Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your car to shut down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to reinstall the engine.

            5. Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was reliable, five times as fast and twice as easy to drive - but would run on only five percent of the roads.

            6. The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lights would all be replaced by a single "This Car Has Performed An Illegal Operation" warning light.

            7. The airbag system would ask "Are you sure?" before deploying.

            8. Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key and grabbed hold of the radio antenna.

            9. Every time a new car was introduced car buyers would have to learn how to drive all over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.

            10. You'd have to press the "Start" button to turn the engine off.


            • Bubba's sister is pregnant and is in a bad car accident, which caused
              her to fall into a deep coma. After nearly six months, she awakens and
              sees that she is no longer pregnant. Frantically, she asks the doctor
              about her baby. The doctor replies, " Ma'am, you had twins - a boy and a girl.

              The babies are fine. Your brother came in and named them."

              The woman thinks to herself, "Oh, no! Not Bubba; he's an idiot!"

              Expecting the worst, she asks the doctor, "Well, what's the girl's name?" Denise," the doctor answers.

              The new mother thinks, "Wow! That's a beautiful name! I guess I was wrong about my brother. I really like the name Denise."

              Then she asks the doctor, "What's the boy's name?" The doctor replies,


              • Supposedly a true story relayed to a guy who was a friend of the Army Ranger who did this:

                I had a date the other night at my place. On the phone the day before, the girl asked me to "Cook her something she's never had before" for dinner.

                After many minutes of scratching my head over what to make, I finally settled on something she has DEFINITELY never eaten.

                I got out my trusty case of MRE's. Meal, Ready-to-Eat. Field rations that when eaten in their entirety contain 3000+ calories. Here's what Imade:

                I took three of the Ham Slices out of their plastic packets, took outthree of the Pork Chops, three packets of Chicken-a-la-King, and eight packets of dehydrated butter noodles and some dehydrated/rehydrated rice. I cooked the Ham Slices and Pork Chops in one pan, sauteed in shaved garlic and oliveoil.

                In another pot, I blended the Chicken a-la-king, noodles, and ricetogether to make a sort of mush that looked suspiciously like succotash. I added some spices, and blended everything together in a glass pan that I then cooked in the oven for about 35 minutes at 450 degrees.

                When I took it out, it looked like, well, ham slices, pork chops, and a bed of yellow poop. I covered the tops of the meat in the MRE cheese (kinda likevelveeta) and added some green sprinkly thingys from one of my spice cans (hey, if it's got green sprinkly thingys on it, it looks fancy right?)

                For dessert, I took four MRE Pound Cakes, mashed 'em up, added five packets of cocoa powder, powdered coffee cream, and some water. I heated it up andstirred it until it looked like a sort of chunky gelatinous organism, and I sprinkled powdered sugar on top of it.Voila--Ranger Pudding.

                For alcoholic drinks, I took the rest of my bottle of Military Special Vodka and mixed in four packets of "Electrolytes - 1 each -Cherry flavored" (I swear, the packet says that). It looked like an eerie kool-aid with sparkles in it (that was the electrolytes I guess... could've been leftover sand from Egypt).

                I lit two candles, put a vase of wildflowers in the middle, and set the table with my best set of Ralph Lauren Academy-series China, and put the alcoholic drink in a crystal wine decanter.

                She came over, and I had some appetizers already made, of MRE spaghetti-with-meatballs, set in small cups. She saw the dinner, saw the food, and said "This looks INCREDIBLE!!!"

                We dug in, and she was loving the food. Throughout the meal, she kept asking me how long it took me to make it, and kept remarking that I obviously knew a thing or two about cooking fine meals. She kind of balked at the makeshift "wine" I had set out, but after she tried it I guess she liked it because she drank four glasses during dinner.

                At the end of the main course, when I served the dessert, she squealed with delight at the "Chocolate mousse" I had made. Huh? Chocolate what? Okay... yeah... its Chocolate Moose. Took me HOURS to make... yup.

                Later on, as we were watching a movie, she excused herself to use my restroom. While she was in there, I heard her say softly to herself "uh oh" and a resounding but petite fart punctuated her utterance of dismay.

                Let the games begin.

                She sprayed about half a can of air freshener (Air Freshener, 1 each, Orange scent. Yup. The Army even makes smellgood) and returned to the couch, this time with an obvious pained look.

                After 10 more minutes she excused herself again, and retreated to the bathroom for the second time. I could hear her say "What is WRONG with me???," as she again send flatulent shockwaves into the porcelain bowl.

                This time, they sounded kinda wet, and I heard the toilet paper roll being employed, and again, LOTS more air freshener.

                Back to the couch. She smiles meekly as she decides to sit on the chair instead of next to me. She sits on my chair, knees pulled up to her chest, kind of rocking back and forth slightly. Suddenly, without a word, she ROCKETED up and FLEW to the bathroom, slammed the door, and didn't come out for 30 minutes.

                I turned the movie up because I didn't want her to hear me laughing so hard that tears were streaming down my cheeks.

                She came out with a slightly gray palor to her face, and said "I am SOOOOOO sorry. I have NO idea what is wrong with me. I am so embarrassed; I can't believe I keep running to your bathroom!!” I gave her an Immodium AD, and she finally settled down and relaxed.

                Later on, she asked me again what I had made for dinner, because she had enjoyed it so much. I calmly took her into the kitchen and showed her all the used MRE bags and packets in the trash can.

                After explaining to her that she had eaten roughly 9,000 calories of "Army food" she turned stark white, looked at me incredulously, and said "I ate 9,000 calories of dehydrated food that was made 3 years ago?” After I concurred, she grabbed her coat and keys, and took off without a word.

                She called me yesterday. Seems she couldn't poop for 3 days, and when she finally did, the smell was so bad, her roommate could smell it from down the hall. She also told me she had been working out nonstop to combat the high caloric intake, and that she never wanted me to cook dinner for her again, unless she was PERSONALLY there to inspect the food beforehand.

                It was a fun date. She laughed about it eventually, and said that that was the first time she'd ever pooped in a guy's house on a date. She'd been so upset by it she was in tears in the bathroom while I had been in tears on the couch.

                I know, I'm a jerk, but it was still a funny night.


                • A sweet little boy surprised his grandmother one morning and brought her a cup of coffee. He made it himself and was so proud. He anxiously waited to hear the verdict on the quality of the coffee.

                  The grandmother had never in her life had such a bad cup of coffee, and as she forced down the last sip she noticed three of those little green army guys in the bottom of the cup.

                  She asked, "Honey, why would three little green army guys be in the bottom of my cup?"

                  Her grandson replied, "You know grandma, it's like on TV... The best part of waking up is soldiers in your cup."


                  • A little boy got on the bus, sat next to a man reading a book, and
                    noticed he had his collar on backwards. The little boy asked why he wore his collar that way.

                    The man, who was a priest, said, "I am a Father."
                    The little boy replied, "My Daddy doesn't wear his collar like that."
                    The priest looked up from his book and answered "I am the Father of

                    The boy said, "My Dad has 4 boys, 4 girls and two grandchildren and he doesn't wear his collar that way."
                    The priest, getting impatient, said, "I am the Father of hundreds" and went back to reading his book.

                    The little boy sat quietly thinking for a while, then leaned over and
                    said, "Maybe you should wear your pants backwards instead of your


                    • Have you heard about the three men that went deer hunting. A doctor, a lawyer, and a preacher were all in one stand when a great big buck walked up in their view. All three shot at the same time and the deer fell dead. A discussion began as to which one of the three killed the deer. The lawyer finally said, "since I'm accustomed to examining evidence, I'll go all see if I can determine whose shot killed him." He climbs down out of the stand, makes his way to the deer, and in a few minutes calls back, "the preacher killed him." "How can you tell," yelled back the doctor. "Because the shot that killed him went in one ear and out the other."


                      • To stop her 4-year old daughter from biting her nails, her mother tells
                        her it'll make her fat. "I won't do it any more, Mom," says the daughter.
                        Next day they are out walking when they meet a very fat man. "If I bite my
                        fingernails, I'll be as fat as that, won't I Mom?" "You'll be fatter than
                        that," says her mother. They get on a bus, and sitting opposite them is a
                        very pregnant lady. The little girl can't take her eyes off the woman's
                        belly. The pregnant lady feels increasingly uncomfortable under this

                        • Seems that the traveling salesman was driving in the country and his car
                          broke down. He hiked several miles to a farm house, and asked the farmer
                          if there was a place he could stay over night.
                          "Sure," said the farmer, "my wife died several years ago, and my two
                          daughters are 21 and 23 but they're off to college, and I'm all by my
                          self, so I have lots of room to put you up."
                          Hearing this, the salesman turned around and started walking back towards
                          the highway, and the farmer called after him...."Didn't you hear what I
                          said? I have lots of room."
                          "I heard you," said the salesman,"but I think I'm in the wrong joke."


                          • A cardiologist died and was given an elaborate
                            funeral. A huge heart covered in flowers stood
                            behind the casket during the service. Following the
                            eulogy, the heart opened, and the casket rolled
                            inside. The heart then closed, sealing the doctor in
                            the beautiful heart forever. At that point,
                            one of the mourners burst into laughter. When all
                            eyes stared at him, he said, "I'm sorry, I was just
                            thinking of my own funeral... I'm a gynecologist."
                            That's when the proctologist fainted.

                              Jimmy: 'Hey, Mike! How's your new pet fish doing? You told me he was really something special.'

                              Mike: 'To tell the truth, I'm really disappointed in him. The guy who sold him to me said I could teach him to sing like a bird.'

                              Jimmy: 'What? Let me get this straight... You bought a fish because you thought you could teach him to sing like a bird?'

                              Mike: 'Well, yeah. After all, you know, he's a parrot fish.'

                              Jimmy: 'Now listen, Mike, while you might be able to teach a parrot to sing, you're never going to get anywhere with a parrot fish.'

                              Mike: 'That's what you think! It just so happens this fish CAN sing. The thing is, he's terribly off-key and it's driving me crazy. Do you know how hard it is to tuna fish?'


                              • On a U.S. cruiser the officer of the deck asked the starboard lookout, "What would you do if a sailor was washed overboard?"
                                "I'd yell 'Man overboard,' " answered the lookout snappily.
                                "Good," said the officer. "Now what would you do if an officer fell overboard?"
                                The lookout asked, "Which one, sir?"
