A blind man is walking down the street with his seeing-eye dog one day.They come to a busy intersection and the dog, ignoring the high volume oftraffic zooming by on the street, leads the blind man right out into thethick of the traffic. This is followed by the screech of tires and hornsblaring as panicked drivers try separately not to run the pair down.

The blind man and the dog finally reach the safety of the sidewalk on the other side of the street and the blind man pulls a cookie out of his coat pocket which he offers to the dog.

A passerby, having observed the near-fatal incident, can’t control his amazement and says to the blind man, “Why on earth are you rewarding your dog with a cookie? He nearly got you killed!”

The blind man turns partially in his direction and replies, “To find out where his head is so I can kick his ass!”

There was once a forest with a small pond in the center. The forest was so big and dense, however, that the small frog that lived in the pond had never seen another living creature.

One day, a rabbit and a bear got lost in the forest and accidentally found the pond. The frog was so happy to finally see another living creature, that he told them that it was a magic pond and he would grant them each 3 wishes.

The bear thought to himself a moment, and being the young male bear that he was, he said, “Frog, I wish for all the bears in the forest, except for me, to be female.”

The frog croaked and all the bears in the forest except for
him became female.

The rabbit said, “Frog, I wish for a helmet.” Again the frog croaked, and a helmet appeared on the rabbit’s head.

The bear looked at the rabbit and thought to himself, “What a stupid wish!

She could have wished for anything, and instead she wishes for a helmet.” Shaking his head, the bear suddenly got an idea, and he said, “Frog, for my second wish, I wish for all the bears in the neighboring forest as well, except for me, of course, to be female.” The frog croaked, and so all the bears in the neighboring forest turned female as well.

The rabbit promptly said, “I wish for a motorcycle,” and a small motorcycle appeared next to the her.

The bear looked at the rabbit more puzzled than ever. He thought to himself, “What a stupid rabbit! She could have just wished for money and bought those things!” The bear then turned to the frog and declared, “Frog, I have decided on my final wish! For my last wish, I wish for all the bears in the world, except for myself, to be female.” So all the bears in the world,except for that one bear, turned female.

The rabbit tightened her helmet, got on the motorcycle, revved it up and said, “Frog, for my final wish, I wish for the bear to be gay.”

A woman accompanied her husband to the doctor’s office.

After his checkup, the doctor called the wife into his office alone. He said, “Your husband is suffering from a very severe stress disorder. If you don’t do the following, your husband will surely die.”

“Each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast. Be pleasant at all times. For lunch make him a nutritious meal. For dinner prepare an especially nice meal for him. Don’t burden him with chores. Don’t discuss your problems with him, it will only make his stress worse. No nagging. And most importantly, make love with your husband several times a week. If you can do this for the next 10 months to a year, I think your husband will regain his health completely.”

On the way home, the husband asked his wife. “What did the doctor say?”

“He said you’re going to die,” she replied.
