Two kids went into their parents bathroom and noticed the weigh scale in the corner.

Friday, November 2, 2007 -- Winter Parking
One winter morning a couple was listening to the radio over breakfast. They hear the announcer say, "We are going to have 10 to 15 centimetres of snow today. You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, so the snowplows can get through." Norman's wife goes out and moves her car.
A week later while they are eating breakfast again, the radio announcer says, "We are expecting 15 to 20 centimetres of snow today. You must park your car on the odd-numbered side of the street, so the snowplows can get through." Norman's wife goes out and moves her car again.
The next week they are again having breakfast, when the radio announcer says, "We are expecting 20 to 25 centimetres of snow today. You must park ..." Then the power goes out.
Norman's wife is very upset, and with a worried look on her face she says, "Honey, I don't know what to do. Which side of the street do I need to park on so the snowplows can get through?"
Norman says, "Why don't you just leave it in the garage this time?"

Monday, November 5, 2007 -- Judgement Day
Howard dies and waits in line for judgment. He notices that some souls go right into heaven, while Satan throws others into a burning pit. But every so often, instead of hurling a poor soul into the fire, the devil tosses it aside.
Curious, Howard asks Satan, "Excuse me, but why are you tossing them aside instead of flinging them into hell with the others?"
"They're from the Vancouver." Satan replies. "They're too wet to burn."

"Positive," said the bartender.
"Damn," said the stranger, "I guess I just ran over a nun!"

Thursday, November 8, 2007 -- Simple Math
Out of the blue, an accountant decided to leave his wife. He left her a note saying, "Dear Diane, I am 54 years old and have never done anything wild in my life. But now I'm leaving you for a stunning 18-year-old model. We'll be staying at the Savoy."
When he arrived at the hotel, there was a message waiting from his wife. It read, "Dear Clive, I too am 54 years old. I have followed your example and am staying at the Royal with an 18-year-old Italian hunk. And I'm sure that you, as an accountant, will appreciate that 18 goes into 54 many more times than 54 goes into 18!"
Friday, November 9, 2007 -- Who's Your Daddy?
A couple were celebrating their golden anniversary, but the husband had something on his mind.
"There's something that's always bugged me about the children," he said. "I can't help noticing that out of our eight children, Ben looks different from all the others. I know it's a terrible thing to ask, but does he have a different father?"
The wife couldn't bear to look him in the eye. "Yes, it's true," she admitted. "Ben does have a different father from the other seven."
The husband's heart sank. Fighting back the tears, he said, "You have to tell me. Who is Ben's father?"
She looked at him sorrowfully and said, "You."

Tuesday, November 13, 2007 -- Only Three Times
A married couple were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. The husband asked the wife, "Darling, have you ever cheated on me?"
"What a strange question to ask after all these years," she said. "But, if you must know, yes, I have cheated on you. Three times."
The husband was saddened by this admission but wanted to know when. She said, "The first time was when you were 31. Remember you wanted to start a business but no bank would give you a loan? And remember how the bank president came to our house in person and signed the papers? Well . . ."
The husband was touched. "You mean, you slept with the president of the bank so that I could start up my business? That's the kindest thing anyone's ever done for me. When was the second occasion?"
"Remember when you were 48, you had a heart attack and no surgeon would operate on you? And then Dr. Forrest came all the way up here to carry out the surgery himself, and after that you were in good shape again? Well . . ."
The husband was genuinely moved. "So you slept with Dr. Forrest to save my life? What a wonderful woman you are! And when was the third time!"
The wife said, "Remember how a few years ago when you really wanted to be president of the golf club? But you were 52 votes short?"

A National Park ranger was warning a group of tourists about the danger posed by grizzly bears. He said, "Problems can occur when people unexpectedly stumble across bears. To avoid this, we advise hikers to wear tiny bells on their clothing in order to warn the bears of their presence. And always be on guard when you know bears are in the area, particularly if you see bear droppings."
One tourist asked, "How do you identify bear droppings?"
"Easy," replied the ranger. "They're the ones with the tiny bells in them."

Thursday, November 15, 2007 -- Making the Move
At the urging of his doctor, John moved to Arizona. After settling in, he met a neighbour who was also an older man.
"Say, my doctor recommended I move here for my health. Is this really a good place to live?"
"It sure is," the man replied. "When I first arrived here, I couldn't say one word. I had hardly any hair on my head. I didn't have the strength to walk across a room and I had to be lifted out of bed."
"That's wonderful!" said John. "How long have you been here?"
"I was born here."

Friday, November 16, 2007 -- What A Way To Go
There are two guys in a bar...one says, "Did your hear the news - Mike is dead!!!"
"Whoa, what the heck happened to him?" asks the other guy.
"Well he was on his way over to my house the other day and when he arrived outside the house he didn't brake properly and boom - he hit the curb, the car flipped over and he crashed through the sunroof - went flying through the air and smashed through my upstairs bedroom window."
"What a horrible way to die!" says the other guy.
"No no, he survived that, that didn't kill him at all. So, he's landed in my upstairs bedroom and he's all covered in broken glass on the floor. Then, he spots the big old antique wardrobe we have in the room and reaches up for the handle to try to pull himself up. He's just dragging himself up when bang, this massive wardrobe comes crashing down on top of him, crushing him and breaking most of his bones."
"What a way to go, that's terrible!"
"No no, that didn't kill him he survived that. He managed to get the wardrobe off him and crawls out onto the landing, he tries to pull himself up on the banister but under his weight, the banister breaks and he goes falling down on to the first floor. In mid air, all the broken banister poles spin and fall on him, pinning him to the floor, sticking right through him."
"Now that is the most unfortunate way to go!"
"No no, that didn't kill him, he even survived that. So he's on the downstairs landing, just beside the kitchen. He crawls in to the kitchen, tries to pull himself up on the stove, but reached for a big pot of boiling hot water, whoosh, the whole thing came down on him and burned most of his skin off him."
"Man, what a way to go!"
"No no, he survived that, he survived that! He's lying on the ground, covered in boiling water and he spots the phone and tries to pull himself up, to call for help, but instead he grabs the light switch and pulls the whole thing off the wall and the water and electricity didn't mix and so he got electrocuted -- 10,000 volts shot through him."
"Now that is one awful way to go!"
"No no, he survived that..."
"Hold on now, just how did he die?" asks the other guy.
"I shot him!" the first guy exclaims.
"You shot him? What the heck did you shoot him for?"
"The guy was wrecking my house!"

Thursday, November 22, 2007 -- The Art Gallery
A visitor to an art gallery was perplexed by what appeared to be nothing more than a blank canvas. As chance would have it, the artist responsible was standing next to him.
"I don't wish to appear offensive, but what exactly is it supposed to be?" asked the visitor.
"That, sir, is a cow grazing," replied the artist proudly.
"Where's the grass?"
"The cow has eaten it, sir."
"But where's the cow?"
Replied the artist, "You don't think she'd be daft enough to stay after she'd eaten all the grass, do you."

"I'm telling you," repeated the wife. "I'm sure there's water in the carburettor."
"We'll see," mocked the husband. "Let me check it out. Where's the car?"
Replied the wife, "In the swimming pool."

Ten minutes after take-off, the pretty young flight attendant came round with the drinks trolley. The old man requested a whisky and soda.
"And what would you like?" the attendant asked the Baptist minister.
"No, no," he roared. "I would rather commit adultery than drink alcohol!"
The old man looked confused and, handing his drink back to the attendant said, "Sorry, I didn't know there was a choice."
