Thursday, September 1, 2005 -- Black and White
Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother, "Why is the bride dressed in white?"

The child thought about this for a moment, then said, "So why is the groom wearing black?"
Monday, September 5, 2005 -- The Outhouse
Once there was a little boy who lived in the country. They had to use an outhouse, and the little boy hated it because it was hot in the summer,cold in the winter and stank all the time. The outhouse was sitting on the bank of a creek and the boy determined that one day he would push that outhouse into the creek.
One day after a spring rain, the creek was swollen so the little boy decided today was the day to push the outhouse into the creek. So he got a large stick and started pushing. Finally, the outhouse toppled into the creek and floated away.
That night his dad told him they were going to the woodshed after supper. Knowing that meant a spanking, the little boy asked why. The dad replied,"someone pushed the outhouse into the creek today. It was you, wasn't it,son?"
The boy answered yes. Then he thought a moment and said, "Dad, I read in school today that George Washington chopped down a cherry tree and didn't get into trouble because he told the truth."
The dad replied, "Well, son, George Washington's father wasn't in that cherry tree."
Tuesday, September 6, 2005 -- Sunday School
A young boy came to Sunday School late. His teacher knew that he was usually very prompt and asked him if anything was wrong.
The boy replied no, that he was going fishing but his dad told him that he needed to go to church.
The teacher was very impressed and asked the boy if his dad had explained to him why it was more important to go to church than to go fishing.
"Yes," the boy replied. "Dad said he didn't have enough bait for both of us."

The Ecuadorian captain had grown increasingly anxious over rumours of an impending air strike from neighbouring Peru.
"Pedro," he ordered his aide-de-camp, "I want you to climb that mountain and report any signs of Peruvian military activity."
"Si, Capitano," replied Pedro. He trudged up the mountain, and as soon as he crossed the ridge he saw a squadron of planes heading their way.
"There are many planes coming, Capitano," he promptly radioed back.
"Friends or enemies?" the Captain demanded urgently.
Pedro again lifted his binoculars to the sky. "They're flying very closely together, Capitano," he replied. "I think they must be friends."

"You had a baby, I presume," said the other husband.
"Nope," Dick broke in, "Sarah's mother came to live with us."

Monday, September 12, 2005 -- The Latex Company
A guy is going on a tour of a factory that produces various latex products. At the first stop, he is shown the machine that manufactures baby-bottle nipples. The machine makes a loud "hiss-pop" noise.
"The hiss is the rubber being injected into the mould," explains the guide. "The popping sound is the needle poking a hole in the end of the nipple."
Later, the tour reaches the part of the factory where condoms are manufactured. The machine makes a "Hiss. Hiss. Hiss. Hiss-pop" noise.
"Wait a minute!" says the man taking the tour. "I understand what the 'hiss, hiss,' is, but what's that 'pop' every so often?"
"Oh, it's just the same as in the baby-bottle nipple machine," says the guide. "It pokes a hole in every fourth condom."
"Well," warned the man, "that can't be good for the condoms!"
"Yeah" said the guide, "but it's great for the baby-bottle nipple business!"
Tuesday, September 13, 2005 -- The $64,000 Question
Bob had finally made it to the last round of The $64,000 Question. The night before the big question, he told the M.C. that he desired a question on American History.
The big night had arrived. Bob made his way on stage in front of the studio and TV audience. He had become the talk of the week. He was the best guest this show had ever seen. The M.C. stepped up to the microphone.
"Bob, you have chosen American History as your final question. You know that if you correctly answer this question, you will walk away $64,000 dollars richer. Are you ready?"
Bob nodded with a cocky confidence. The crowd went nuts. He hadn't missed a question all week.
"Bob, your question on American History is a two-part question. As you know, you may answer either part first. As a rule, the second half of the question is always easier. Which part would you like to take a stab at first?"
Bob was now becoming more noticeably nervous. He couldn't believe it, but he was drawing a blank. American History was his easiest subject, but he played it safe.
"I'll try the easier part first."
The M.C. nodded approvingly. "Here we go Bob. I will ask you the second half first, then the first half."
The audience silenced with gross anticipation......
"Bob, here is your question: And in what year did it happen??"

Thursday, September 15, 2005 -- The Colonel
A man walked into a bar and stood at the bar, talking to the bartender. He ordered a beer and an empty shot glass.

After a few minutes, he took out the shot glass, empty.
He talked to the bartender for awhile, and then ordered another beer and empty shot glass. Again, he poured off some beer into the shot glass and put the glass into his pocket. Again, he drank the beer and a few minutes later, he took the shot glass out of his pocket, empty.
When he ordered a third beer and empty shot glass, the bartender could contain his curiosity no longer. "Why do you keep putting that shot glass of beer into your pocket and taking it out again empty?"
"Oh," said the man, "that's for the Colonel."
"The Colonel? What are you talking about?"
The man reached into his pocket and pulled out a little man, about one foot tall, dressed in an army colonel's uniform. He set the little man on the bar and handed him the shot glass of beer. The little colonel drank the beer and gave a little burp.
The bartender couldn't believe his eyes. "Is he real?" he gasped.
"Sure he's real," said the man. "Colonel, would you mind walking over by the peanut bowl and back?" The little colonel marched to the peanut bowl and back.
The bartender was astounded. "This is amazing," he said. "Can he talk?"
"Sure he can talk. Colonel, tell him about the time that you were stationed in Africa and called that witch doctor a liar."

Wednesday, September 21, 2005 -- The Shopping Nuns
Two nuns were shopping in a food store and happened to be passing the beer and liquor section. One asks the other if she would like a beer. The other nun answered that would be good, but that she would be queasy about purchasing it. The first nun said that she would handle it and picked up a six pack and took it to the cashier.
The cashier had a surprised look and the first nun said,"The beer is used for washing our hair."
The cashier, without blinking an eye, reached under the counter and put a package of pretzels in the bag with the beer, saying . . ."Here, don't forget the curlers."

Monday, September 26, 2005 -- Two Roaches
Two roaches were munching on garbage in an alley when one engages a discussion about a new restaurant.
"I was in that new restaurant across the street," said one. "It's so clean! The kitchen is spotless, and the floors are gleaming white. There is no dirt anywhere--it's so sanitary that the whole place shines."
"Please," said the other roach frowning. "Not while I'm eating!"
Wednesday, September 28, 2005 -- The Dentist

Replied the dentist, "There are so many people in the waiting room right now, and I don't want to miss the four o'clock ball game."
Thursday, September 29, 2005 -- Who Does What
A man and his wife were having an argument about who should brew the coffee each morning. The wife said, "You should do it, because you get up first, and then we don't have to wait as long to get our coffee."
The husband said, "You are in charge of cooking around here and you should do it, because that is your job, and I can just wait for my coffee."
The wife replies, "No, you should do it. And besides, it is in the Bible that the man should do the coffee."
Husband replies, "I can't believe that; show me."
So she fetched the Bible, and opened the New Testament and showed him at the top of several pages, that it indeed says.........."HEBREWS"
