Childbirth at 65
all the new technology regarding fertility recently, a 65-year-old friend of mine was able to give birth. When she was discharged
from the hospital and went home, I went to visit. 'May I see the new baby?' I asked 'Not
yet,' She said 'I'll make coffee and we can visit for a while first.' Thirty minutes passed, and
I asked, 'May I see the new baby now?' 'No, not yet,' She said. After
another few minutes had elapsed, I asked again, 'May I see the baby now?' 'No,
not yet,' replied my friend.
Growing very impatient, I asked, 'Well, when can I see the baby?'
HE CRIES!' she told me.
'WHEN HE CRIES?' I demanded. 'Why do I have to wait until he CRIES?'
I FORGOT WHERE I PUT HIM,O.K..?!!'

The Lone Ranger & Tonto
The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert. After they got their tent all set up, both men
fell sound asleep.
Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says, "Kemo Sabe,
look towards sky, what you see? "
The Lone Ranger replies, "I see millions of stars."
"What that tell you?" asked Tonto.
Lone Ranger ponders for a minute then says, "Astronomically
speaking, it tells me there are millions ofgalaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically,
it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three in the morning. Theologically,
the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful
it tell you, Tonto?
"It tell me you dumber than buffalo poop … someone
stole the tent.”
One day two jewish men decided to visit Mexico, a place they had always wanted to see.
They traveled all day and checked into a nice hotel with a nice dining room. They went to dinner and looked over the
menu when one said, " This is really quite nice isn't it?" "Yes it is", replied his friend.
" I wonder how many jews live here...I will ask the waiter when he comes over." Soon the
waiter came over, took their order and one of the men asked, " Say, do you have Mexican Jews here?" The waiter thought
a moment and said " No senoir, we no have Mexican jews here." The man seemed quite shocked. " That's hard to beleive,"
the man said to his friend.
"Jews are everywhere, no matter where you go. I am going to ask again."
So when the waiter came back, he asked again, "Are you sure there are no Mexican Jews?"
The waiter looked at him and said, " I don't think so but I will ask someone else to be sure."
In a few minutes, the waiter returned. " No, I am sorry senior. We have tomato jews,
orange jews and grape jews but no body ever heard of Mexican jews."
An Atheist in the Woods.....
An atheist was walking through the woods. "What
majestic trees!" "What powerful rivers!" "What beautiful animals!" He said to himself.
As he was
walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly
bear charge toward him.
He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder & saw that the
bear was closing in on him.
He looked over his shoulder again & the bear was even closer. He tripped &
fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him, reaching for him with
his left paw & raising his right paw to strike him. At that instant the Atheist cried out, "Oh my God!"
Time stopped. The bear froze. The forest was silent.
As a bright light shone upon the man, a voice came out
of the sky.
my existence for all these years, teach others I don't exist and even credit creation to cosmic accident." "Do you expect
me to help you out of this predicament? Am I to count you as a believer?"
atheist looked directly into the light, "It would be hypocritical of me to suddenly ask you to treat me as a Christian
now, but perhaps you could make the BEAR a Christian"?
"Very well," said the voice.
The light went out.
The sounds of the forest resumed. And the bear dropped his right paw, brought both paws together, bowed his head & spoke:
"Lord, bless this food, which I am about to receive from thy bounty. Amen."
A Bunny Tale
My good friend Ernest lives on a farm in Tennessee. Ernest is married but keeps to himself, doesn't
mingle much and has an old hound dog named Jake. Now Jake is old, true enough, but Ernest let's old Jake have the run
of the farm. Next door to Ernest, on the adjacent farm, lives a man with his wife and three little children. Ernest
never see's much of the neighbors except on the first Sunday of the month when they all got together for a friendly
cook-out. Ernest and his wife would go to the neighbors farm and sit and talk and eat pig and watch the children play with their
very large and quite old rabbit. Ernest suspected that old rabbit was as old as his old hound Jake. The children
loved that old rabbit. They carried him all over the place. Ernest used to see them pulling it in their wagon,
riding it on their pony and sitting with it on the front porch late in the evening.
They dearly loved that old rabbit!
As you can image, when Ernest came home from work one day and found old Jake dragging that old rabbit
through the weeds and dirt towards the porch, Ernest let out a blood curdling scream! "Oh my God Jake...what have you
done? Oh my God...those kids are never going to get over this! Oh Jake...oh Jake...!"
Well, after a few minutes Ernest composed himself and took the old rabbit from Jake's jaw. After thinking
for a few minutes, he took the old rabbit into the house and began cleaning all the dirt off it. He dried it with a
hair dryer and used a hair brush to smooth out the matted fur. When the sun went down and it was dark, he sneaked
over to the neighbors farm and opened up the rabbits cage door and placed the old rabbit back inside, carefully closing the
door and latching it. He ran home as quickly as he could. "Well Jake, I got him back into the cage. The
kids will think he just died. It will be sad, but not as sad as if they knew you killed it!"
Jake cocked his head, whined okay and that was that!
It was about three days later when Ernest saw his neighbor outside again. " Hey neighbor, how's it
going?" he shouted. The neighbor walked to where Ernest was. "Oh it's going okay I suppose. I am still just very
upset about our old rabbit. The kids are beside themeslves."
"Why, what happened to your rabbit?" Ernest asked. "I'm afraid the old guy died of old age. He's
been with us a long time you know. Yeah, he died last week-end and me and the wife and kids had a nice furneral for
him out back of the barn. The kids all said a little something and we buried him....but that wasn't the saddest part.
The kids were devastated a few days later."
"Really? What could be worse than than having to bury something you loved so much?" Ernest asked cursiouly.
" Well, the worse part was that somebody dug him up and put him back in his cage ......."
