Aging Aunt Mildred was a 93-year-old woman who was particularly despondent over the recent death of her husband. She decided she would just kill herself and join him in death.

Thinking that it would be best to get it over with quickly, she took out his old army pistol and made the decision to shoot herself in the heart since it was so badly broken in the first place.

Not wanting to miss the vital organ and become a vegetable and a burden to someone, she called her doctor’s office to inquire as to just exactly where the heart would be on a woman.

The doctor said, your heart would be just below your left breast.

Later that night, Mildred was admitted to the hospital with a gunshot wound to her knee.

Q. What does HMO stand for?

A. This is actually a variation of the phrase, “HEY MOE.” Its roots go back to a concept pioneered by Moe of the Three Stooges, who discovered that a patient could be made to forget about the pain in his foot if he was poked hard enough in the eyes.

Q. I just joined an HMO. How difficult will it be to choose a doctor?

A. Just slightly more difficult than choosing your parents. Your insurer will provide you with a book listing all the doctors in the plan. These doctors basically fall into two categories– those who are no longer accepting new patients, and those who will see you but are no longer participating in the plan.

Q. Do all diagnostic procedures require pre-certification?

A. No. Only those you need.

Q. Can I get coverage for my preexisting conditions?

A. Certainly, as long as they don’t require any treatment.

Q. What happens if I want to try alternative forms of medicine?

A. You’ll need to find alternative forms of payment.

Q. My pharmacy plan only covers generic drugs, but I need the name brand. I tried the generic, but it gave me a stomach ache. What should I do?

A. Poke yourself in the eye.

Q. What if I’m away from home and I get sick?

A. You really shouldn’t do that.

Q. I think I need to see a specialist, but my doctor insists he can handle my problem. Can a general practitioner really perform a heart transplant right in his office?

A. Hard to say, but considering that all you’re risking is the $15 co-payment, there’s no harm in giving him a shot at it

Grandchildren are God’s reward for not killing your kids.


According to the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, while both male and female reindeer grow antlers in the summer each year, male reindeer drop their antlers at the beginning of winter, usually late November to mid-December. 

Female reindeer retain their antlers till after they give birth in the spring. Therefore, according to every historical rendition  depicting Santa’s reindeer, every single one of them, from Rudolph to Blitzen – had to be girls.

We should’ve known. Only women, while pregnant, would be able to drag a fat man in a red velvet suit all around the world in one night and not get lost.

A couple went on a camera safari in Africa, taking their dachshund along for company. One day the dachshund discovers that he is lost. Later he sees a leopard heading rapidly in his direction with the obvious intention of having lunch.

The dachshund thinks, “I’m in deep trouble now,” but then notices some bones on the ground. He immediately settles down to chew on the bones, with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopard gathers himself to pounce, he dachshund exclaims loudly, “That was one delicious leopard. I wonder if there are any more around here?”

Hearing this, the leopard halts his attack and slinks off into the trees. “Whew,” he thinks. “That was close. That odd-looking animal nearly had me.”

A monkey sees all this from a nearby tree and decides use his knowledge to trade for protection from the leopard. So off he goes to tell all. The dachshund sees him chasing after the leopard, and figures something may be up.

The monkey catches up with the leopard, fills him in, and strikes his deal. The leopard is chagrined at being made a fool and says, “Monkey, hop on my back and see happens to that conniving canine.”

Now the dachshund sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back. Instead of running, he sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending not to have seen them.

Just when they’re close enough to hear, the dachshund says, “Where is that monkey? I sent him off half an hour ago to bring me another leopard……”

“Sure,” the man said, “I love to drink.”

The guy is astounded. “Damn, that sounds great.”

“You a smoker?” the demon asked.

“You better believe it!”

“You’re gonna love Tuesdays. We get the finest cigars from all over the world and smoke our lungs out. If you get cancer, no biggie. You’re already dead, remember?”

“Wow, the guy said, “that’s awesome!”

The demon continued. “I bet you like to gamble.”

“Why yes, as a matter of fact I do.”

“Wednesdays you can gamble all you want. Craps, blackjack, roulette, poker, slots, whatever. If you go bankrupt, well, you’re dead anyhow.”

You into drugs?”

The guy said, “Are you kidding? I love drugs! You don’t mean . . .”

“That’s right! Thursday is drug day. Help yourself to a great big bowl of crack, or smack. Smoke a doobie the size of a submarine. You can do all the drugs you want, you’re dead, who cares!”

“Wow,” the guy said, starting to feel better about his situation, “I never realized Hell was such a cool place!”

The demon said, “You gay?”


“Ooh, you’re gonna hate Fridays!”

An older couple were lying in bed one night. The husband was falling asleep but the wife was in a romantic mood and wanted to talk.

She said: “You used to hold my hand when we were courting.”

Wearily he reached across, held her hand for a second and tried to get back to sleep.

A few moments later she said: “Then you used to kiss me.”

Mildly irritated, he reached across, gave her a peck on the cheek and settled down to sleep. Thirty seconds later she said: “Then you used to bite my neck.”

Angrily, he threw back the bed clothes and got out of bed.

“Where are you going?” she asked.

“To get my teeth!”

And just remember . . . if the world didn’t suck, we’d all fall off.
