Celibacy can be a choice in life, or a condition imposed by environmental encounters. While attending a Marriage Encounter Weekend, Arch and his wife Kay, listened to the instructor declare, “It is essential that husbands and wives know the things that are important to each other.” He addressed the men, “Can you name and describe your wife’s favorite flower?”

Arch leaned over, touched Kay’s arm gently and whispered, “Pillsbury All-Purpose, isn’t it?”

And thus began Arch’s life of celibacy.

The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Indians, passed on from generation to generation, says that:
“When you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount.”

However, in corporate America more advanced strategies are often employed…such as:

  1. Buying a stronger whip.
  2. Changing riders.
  3. Appointing a committee to study the horse.
  4. Arranging to visit other countries to see how other cultures ride horses.
  5. Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be included.
  6. Reclassifying the dead horse as living impaired.
  7. Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse.
  8. Harnessing several dead horses together to increase speed.
  9. Providing additional funding and/or training to increase the dead horse’s performance.
  10. Doing a productivity study to see if lighter riders would improve the dead horse’s performance.
  11. Declaring that as the dead horse does not have to be fed, it is less costly, carries lower overhead and therefore contributes substantially more to the bottom line of the economy than live horses.
  12. Rewriting the expected performance requirements for all horses.
  13. And of course my favorite………..
  14. Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position

The article read: “The way to achieve inner peace is to finish all the things you’ve started.”

So I looked around the house to see all the things I started and hadn’t finished…. and before coming to work this morning, I finished off a bottle of red wine, a bottle of white, the Bailey’s, Kahlua and Wild Turkey, my Prozac, some Valium, my cigarettes and a box of chocolates.

You have no idea how freakin’ good I feel….

There once was a rich man who was near death. He was very grieved because he had worked so hard for his money and he wanted to be able to take it with him to heaven. So he began to pray that he might be able to take some of his wealth with him.

An angel hears his plea and appears to him, “Sorry, but you can’t take your wealth with you.”

The man implores the angel to speak to God to see if He might bend the rules.

The man continues to pray that his wealth could follow him. The angel reappears and informs the man that God has decided to allow him to take one suitcase with him. Overjoyed, the man gathers his largest suitcase and fills it with pure gold bars and places it beside his bed.

Soon afterward the man dies and shows up at the Gates of Heaven to greet St. Peter. Seeing the suitcase Peter says, “Hold on, you can’t bring that in here!”

But the man explains to him that he has permission and asks him to verify his story with the Lord. Sure enough,. Peter checks and comes back saying, “You’re right. You are allowed one carryon bag, but I’m supposed to check its contents before letting it through.”

Peter opens the suitcase to inspect the worldly items that the man found too precious to leave behind and exclaims, “You brought pavement?!?!”

“Ah, yes, divorce, from the Latin word

Blondie Air Lines Flight 113 was descending for a landing at an airport they had never been to before.

The blonde pilot looked out the windshield and suddenly exclaimed to the copilot, “Holy cow! Look how short the runway is! I’ve never seen one that short!”

The blonde copilot looked out the windshield. “Wow! You’re right! That’s incredible! Are you sure we can make it?”

“Well we better, were almost out of fuel.”

So the captain got on the intercom and notified the passengers to put their heads between their knees and prepare for an emergency landing. Then she set the flaps to full down and slowed the plane to just over stall speed. The big jumbo jet came screaming in, on the ragged edge of control. The pilot’s hands were sweating, the copilot was praying. They touched down and came screeching to a halt JUST before the edge of the runway, the tires smoking.

“WHEW! That was CLOSE!” yelled the blonde captain. “That runway was SHORT!”

“Yeah!” said the blonde copilot,” and WIDE too!”

“Sex at age 90 is like trying to shoot pool with a rope.”

An elderly married couple scheduled their annual medical examination the same day so they could travel together.

After examining the husband, the doctor said to him: “You appear to be in good health. Do you have any medical concerns you would like to discuss with me?”

“In fact, I do,” said the old man. “After I have sex with my wife, the first time I am usually hot and sweaty, and then, after I have sex with her the second time, I am usually cold and chilly. “

After examining the elderly lady, the doctor said, “Everything appears to be fine. Do you have any medical concerns that you would like to discuss with me?”

The lady replied that she had no questions or concerns.

The doctor then asked: “Your husband had an unusual concern. He claims that he is usually hot and sweaty after having sex the first time with you and then cold and chilly after the second time. Do you know why?”

“Oh, that crazy old geezer!” she replied. “That’s because the first time is usually around July and the second time is usually in December!”

“Bisexuality immediately doubles your chances
for a date on Saturday night.”
