Jokes for Charlie

       So the clever novice decided to go and ask the Head Priest whether their smoking was congruent with
       their prayer life. He returned and excitedly said "Yes, he said it was OK!".

       So the clever novice asked the curious one, "What did you ask the Head Priest?"

She replied, "Well, I've never been on a ranch before so I'm definitely not a cowboy. Actually, I'm a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about women. As soon as I get up in the morning, I think of women. When I eat, shower, and watch TV, I always seem to be thinking of women." The confused but intrigued cowboy ordered another drink. Some time later, a couple sat down next to him and asked, "Are you a real cowboy?" "Well, to be honest," he said, "I always thought I was, but I just realized that I'm actually a lesbian." 08Apr:

If there are many differences found between both dolphins, it means that the person is experiencing a great amount of stress.

16Apr: David Wilcox's Carpenter Story:     17Apr: There was once a hospital with a special room just for children who were struggling with disease. A magician often came to visit to help lift the spirits of the children as they lay in their beds. There was also a doctor that none of the children liked, he was mean ole man. One day when the magician arrived, a child asked if he could perform a certain magic trick. "Anything!" said the magician. "I would like you to get rid of that mean ole doctor" said the child. "Turn him into something besides a doctor". The magician thought "OK, how about if I turn him into an apple!" The children all responded "Great!". Sure enough, when the doctor grumbled into the room the magician waved his wand and the doctor was transformed into a bright red apple. "Quick, put him in that jar so he doesn't roll away, or turn back into a mean doctor!" said a child. So they did, and the children felt safer. "But how will we know the apple is still in there? We cannot see into the jar!" said another child. "No problem" said the magician. "We will weigh the jar today, and then every day we will weigh it again. If the jar always weighs the same then we'll know the apple is in there, and we'll know that we are safe!" The children were thrilled, and each day they looked forward to weighing the jar. They thanked the magician for taking away the mean ole doctor. The moral of the story? "A weigh a day keeps the doctor an apple" 18Apr:

Please excuse me while I think of an excuse. 03Jun: "How I Met My Wife" by Jack Winter It had been a rough day, so when I walked into the party I was very chalant, despite my efforts to appear gruntled and consolate. I was furling my wieldy umbrella for the coat check when I saw her standing alone in a corner. She was a descript person, a woman in a state of total array. Her hair was kempt, her clothing shevelled, and she moved in a gainly way. I wanted desperately to meet her, but I knew I'd have to make bones about it since I was travelling cognito. Beknownst to me, the hostess, whom I could see both hide and hair of, was very proper, so it would be skin off my nose if anything bad happened. And even though I had only swerving loyalty to her, my manners couldn't be peccable. Only toward and heard-of behavior would do. Fortunately, the embarrassment that my maculate appearance might cause was evitable. There were two ways about it, but the chances that someone as flappable as I would be ept enough to become persona grata or a sung hero were slim. I was, after all, something to sneeze at, someone you could easily hold a candle to, someone who usually aroused bridled passion. So I decided not to risk it. But then, all at once, for some apparent reason, she looked in my direction and smiled in a way that I could make heads or tails of. ... to be continued 04Jun: I was plussed. It was concerting to see that she was communicado, and it nerved me that she was interested in a pareil like me, sight seen. Normally, I had a domitable spirit, but, being corrigible, I felt capacitated -- as if this were something I was great shakes at -- and forgot that I had succeeded in situations like this only a told number of times. So, after a terminable delay, I acted with mitigated gall and made my way through the ruly crowd with strong givings. Nevertheless, since this was all new hat to me and I had no time to prepare a promptu speech, I was petuous. Wanting to make only called-for remarks, I started talking about the hors d'oeuvres, trying to abuse her of the notion that I was sipid, and perhaps even bunk a few myths about myself. She responded well, and I was mayed that she considered me a savory character who was up to some good. She told me who she was. "What a perfect nomer," I said, advertently. The conversation become more and more choate, and we spoke at length to much avail. But I was defatigable, so I had to leave at a godly hour. I asked if she wanted to come with me. To my delight, she was committal. We left the party together and have been together ever since. I have given her my love, and she has requited it. 05Jun: A monk in his travels once found a precious stone and kept it. One day he met a traveler, and when the monk opened his bag to share his provisions with him, the traveler saw the jewel and asked the monk to give it to him. The monk did so readily. The traveler departed overjoyed with the unexpected gift of the precious stone that was enough to give him wealth and security for the rest of his life. However, a few days later he came back in search of the monk, found him, gave him back the stone, and entreated him, "Now give me something much more precious than this stone, valuable as it is. Give me that which enabled you to give it to me." -- Anthony DeMello 06Jun: bumper stickers DUPLICATES Warning: Dates in Calendar are closer than they appear. Give me ambiguity or give me something else. We have enough youth, how about a fountain of SMART? We are born naked, wet and hungry. Then things get worse. Make it idiot proof and someone will make a better idiot. He who laughs last thinks slowest! Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else. Hard work has future payoff. Laziness pays off now. What is a "free" gift? Aren't all gifts free? 07Jun: more bumper stickers Puritanism: The haunting fear that someone, somewhere may be happy. Consciousness: that annoying time between naps. I don't suffer from insanity. I enjoy every minute of it. The gene pool could use a little chlorine. Few women admit their age. Few men act theirs. All generalizations are false. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine. The gene pool could use a little chlorine. Time is what keeps everything from happening at once. I love cats...they taste just like chicken. Out of my mind. Back in five minutes. Born free... Taxed to death. Conserve toilet paper, use both sides. Rehab is for quitters. 08Jun: 09Jun: 10Jun: PWS Q: What do you call leftover Chinese food?

If you don't like the news, go out and make some. I took an IQ test and the results were negative. Where there's a will, I want to be in it. OK, who stopped payment on my reality check? If we aren't supposed to eat animals, why are they made of meat? I don't suffer from insanity, I enjoy every minute of it. Hard work has a future payoff. Laziness pays off NOW. IRS: We've got what it takes to take what you've got. Back up my hard drive? How do I put it in reverse? 15Jun: It was Christmas time in an impoverished South American island community. An American woman who had been teaching English to the young children of the island was saying her good-byes after a year of struggles and joys with her students. Some of the children brought gifts for her, whatever they could make or afford. Upon opening one of the boxes she beheld a rare and beautiful treasure - a seashell which could only be found at a remote beach fifteen rocky miles from the school. Staring down at it in wonder she said "I love my shell, but how were you able to get it for me? That beach is halfway around the island!" The young child took her hand and replied in broken English, "Long walk ... part of gift.” 17Jun: This fella had been going with the same woman for years when they finally decided to tie the knot. One evening, shortly after their honeymoon, she popped into the garage when he was cleaning his golf clubs. After watching him work for a few minutes, she said, "Honey, I/ve been thinking that now that we are married, maybe it's time you quit spending so much of your time out there on the golf course. And maybe you should lose all those rods and reels and stop wasting time with that fishing thing. And maybe you should get rid of that silly vintage Harley Davidson so you could spend more time with me!" Well, he got a horrified look on his face. She exclaimed, "Darling, what's wrong?" He answered, "For a minute there you were beginning to sound like my ex-wife." "Ex-wife!" she yelled. "You never told me you were married before!" He looked her straight in the eye, "I wasn't." 18Jun: Ethel and Margaret were friends at the Golden Age retirement community and one day decided to take the old car for a spin.

Today a man knocked on my door and asked for a small donation towards the local swimming pool, so I gave him a glass of water.

The attorney asked, "May I help you?" The farmer said, "Yea, I want to get one of those day-vorces." The attorney said, "Well do you have any grounds?" The farmer said, "Yea, I got about 140 acres." The attorney said, "No, you don't understand, do you have a case?" The farmer said, "No, I don't have a Case, but I have a John Deere." The attorney said, "No you don't understand, I mean do you have a grudge?" The farmer said, "Yea I got a grudge, that's where I park my John Deere." The attorney said, "No sir, I mean do you have a suit?" The farmer said, "Yes sir, I got a suit. I wear it to church on Sundays."
