Just Plain Silliness

January 30th 2009 via email from my mom!

The first man married a woman from  OHIO . He told her that she
was to do the dishes and house cleaning. It took a couple of days, but
on the third day, he came home to see a clean house, dishes washed,

and put away.

The second man married a woman from   . He gave
his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes and the
cooking. The first day he didn’t see any results, but the next day
he saw it was better. By the third day, he saw his house was clean, the
dishes were done and there was a huge dinner on the table.

The third man married a woman from MINNESOTA.  He ordered
her to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn mowed, laundry
washed, and hot meals on the table for every meal. He said the first day

he didn’t see anything, the second day he didn’t see anything, but by the

third day, some of the swelling had gone down and he could see a little

out of his left eye, and his arm was healed enough that he could fix

himself a sandwich and load the dishwasher!

The other day my neighbor, who is blonde, came running up to me in
the driveway jumping for joy! I didn’t know why she was jumping so
excitedly but I thought, ‘what the heck’, and I starting jumping up and
down along with her.
She said, ‘I have some really great news!’
I said, ‘Great. Tell me why you’re so happy.’
She stopped jumping and breathing heavily from all the jumping up
and down, told me that she was pregnant. I knew she’d been trying for a
while so I told her, ‘That’s great I couldn’t be happier for you!’
Then she said, ‘There’s more’
I asked, What do you mean there’s more.
She said, ‘Well, we are not having just one baby. We are going to
have TWINS!’
Amazed at how she could know so soon after getting pregnant,
I asked her how she knew. She said….
(You’re going to love this!) 🙂

‘Well, that was the easy part. I went to Sam’s Club and they actually had
a home pregnancy kit in a TWIN-pack. Both tests came out positive!’

January 21st 2009 via email from my mom!

The  1st Affair
A married man was having an affair with his secretary.
One day they went to her place and made love all afternoon.
Exhausted, they fell asleep and woke up at 8 PM.

The man hurriedly dressed and told his lover to take his shoes
outside and rub them in the grass and dirt.

He put on his shoes and drove home.

‘Where have you been?’ his wife demanded.
‘I can’t lie to you,’ he replied,

‘I’m having an affair with my secretary.
We had sex all afternoon.’

She looked down at his shoes and said:

‘You lying bastard!
You’ve been playing golf!’

The 2nd Affair
A middle-aged couple had two beautiful daughters
but always talked about having a son.
They decided to try one last time
for the son they always wanted.

The wife got pregnant and delivered a healthy baby boy.

The joyful father rushed to the nursery to see his new son.

He was horrified at the ugliest child he had ever seen.

He told his wife:  ‘There’s no way I can be the father of this baby.
Look at the two beautiful daughters I fathered!
Have you been fooling around behind my back?’

The  wife smiled sweetly and replied:  ‘No, not this time!’

The 3rd Affair
A mortician was working late one night.
He examined the body of Mr. Schwartz, about to be cremated,  ;
and made a startling discovery. Schwartz  had the largest private part
he had ever seen!

‘I’m sorry Mr. Schwartz,’ the mortician commented, ‘I can’t allow you to be cremated with such an impressive private part.
It must be saved for posterity.’  ;

So, he removed it,
stuffed it into his briefcase,  and took it home.

‘I have something to show you won’t believe,’ he said to his wife,
opening his briefcase.

‘My God!’ the wife exclaimed,
‘Mr. Schwartz is dead!’

The  4th Affair
A woman was in bed with her loveR when she heard her husband
opening the front door.
‘Hurry ,’ she said, ‘stand in the corner.’

She rubbed baby oil all over him, then dusted him with talcum powder.

‘Don’t move until I tell you,’  she said ‘Pretend you’re a statue.’

‘What’s this?’ the husband inquired  as he entered the room.

‘Oh it’s a statue,’ she replied.  ‘The Smiths bought one and I liked it
so I got one for us, too.’

No more was said,  not even when they went to bed.

Around 2 AM the husband got up, went to the kitchen and returned
with a sandwich and a beer.

‘Here,’ he said to the statue, ‘have this.



I stood like that for two days at the Smiths and nobody offered me a damned thing.’

The 5th Affair
A man walked into a cafe, went to the bar and ordered a beer.
‘Certainly, Sir, that’ll be one cent.’

‘One  Cent?’ the man exclaimed.

He glanced at the menu and asked ‘How much for a nice juicy steak
and a bottle of wine?’

‘A nickel,’ the barman  replied.

‘A nickel?’ exclaimed the man. ‘Where’s the guy who owns this place?’

The  bartender replied:  ‘Upstairs, with my wife.’

The man asked: ‘ What’s he doing upstairs with your wife?’

The  bartender replied: ‘The  same thing I’m doing to his business down here.’

The 6th Affair
Jake was dying. His wife sat at the bedside.
He looked up and said weakly: ‘I have something I must confess.’

‘There’s no need to, ‘his wife replied.

‘No,’ he insisted, ‘I want to die in peace.
I slept with your sister, your best friend, her best friend, and your mother!’

‘I know,’ she replied.  ‘Now just rest and let the poison work.’






January 20th 2008 via email from Sue

When you occasionally have a really bad day,
And you just need to take it out on someone
Don’t take it out on someone you know
Take it out on someone you don’t know
But you know deserves it
I found the number and dialed it
A man answered, saying  ‘Hello.’    
I politely said, ‘This is Chris
Could I please speak with Robyn Carter?’
Suddenly a manic voice yelled out in my ear
‘Get the right f***ing number!’
And the phone was slammed down on me
I couldn’t believe that anyone could be so rude
I found that I had accidentally transposed the last two digits
He yelled =A1NO!’
And slammed down the phone.=I quickly called him back and said
‘That’s because you’re an asshole!’
And hung up.
I hit the horn and yelled that I’d been waiting for that spot
But the idiot ignored me
I noticed a ‘For  Sale ‘ sign in his back window
So I wrote down his number
I said, ‘Listen, Don, can I tell you something?’    
He said, ‘Yes?’   
I said, ‘Don, you’re an asshole!’    
Then I hung up
Then I hung up and immediately called the police, Saying that I lived at    34  Oak tree Blvd , in  Fairfax ,and that I was on my way over there to kill my gay lover.
Then I called Channel 7 News
About the gang war going down in  Oak tree Blvd in  Fairfax .    
I quickly got into my car and headed over to  Fairfax . 
I got there just in time to watch two assholes beating the crap out of each other in front of six cop cars, an overhead news helicopter and surrounded by a news crew

NOW I feel much better



And added his number to my speed dial, too.
Now, when I had a problem
I had two assholes to call.  
Then I came up with an idea…   

I called asshole #1.     He said, ‘Hello.’     
I said, ‘You’re an asshole!’
(But I didn’t hang up.)    He asked, ‘Are you still there?’       
I said, ‘Yeah!’
He screamed, ‘Stop calling me,’    
I said, ‘Make me,’       He asked, ‘Who are you?’    
I said, ‘My name is Don Hansen.’  
He said, ‘Yeah? Where do you live?’    
I said, ‘Asshole, I live at  34 Oak tree  Blvd , in  Fairfax
A yellow ranch style home and I have a black Beamer parked in front.’     
He said, ‘I’m coming over right now, Don
And you had better start saying your prayers.’      
I said, ‘Yeah, like I’m really scared, asshole,’
And hung up.=

Then I called Asshole #2.    
He said, ‘Hello?’  I said, ‘Hello, asshole,’     
He yelled, ‘If I ever find out who you are…’  
I said, ‘You’ll what?’  
He exclaimed, ‘I’ll kick your ass,’ 
I answered, ‘Well, asshole, here’s your chance I’m coming over right now.’

A couple of days later,=20
Right after calling the first asshole
(I had   his number on speed dial)
I thought that I’d better call the BMW asshole, too

I said, ‘Is this the man with the black BMW for sale?’      
He said,  ‘Yes, it is.’   
I then asked, ‘Can you tell me where I can see it?’    
He said, ‘Yes, I live at   34 Oak tree  Blvd , in  Fairfax
It’s a yellow ranch style house and the car’s parked right out in front.’ 
I asked, ‘What’s your name?’    
He said, ‘My name is Don Hansen,’       
I asked,  ‘When’s  a good time to catch you, Don?’  
He said, ‘I’m home every evening after five.’

One day I was at the store Getting ready to pull into a parking Spot.     
Some guy in a black BMW
Cut me off and pulled into the spot I had patiently waited for. 

After hanging up with her

I decided to call the ‘wrong’ number again
When the same guy answered the phone, I yelled
‘You’re an asshole!’  And hung up.   
I wrote his number down with the word ‘asshole’ next to it
And put it in my desk drawer.   

Every couple of weeks
When I was paying bills or had a really bad day
I’d call him up and yell, ‘You’re an asshole!’     
It always cheered me up

When Caller ID was introduced

I thought my therapeutic  ‘asshole’
Calling would have to stop
So, I called his number and said,

‘Hi,  this is John Smith from the telephone company
I’m calling to see if you’re familiar with our Caller ID Program?’      

When I tracked down Robyn ‘s correct number to call her

I was sitting at my desk when I remembered
A phone call I’d forgotten to make.

(I SO totally agree with this one!)


 (Whoever wrote this one deserves a HUGE pat on the back!)

Like a lot of folks in this state, I have a job. I work, they pay me. I pay my taxes and the government distributes my taxes as it sees fit.

 In order to get that paycheck, I am required to pass a random urine test with which I have no problem. What I do have a problem with is the distribution of my taxes to people who don’t have to pass a urine test.

 Shouldn’t one have to pass a urine test to get a welfare check because I have to pass one to earn it for them?

 Please understand, I have no problem with helping people get back on their feet.

I do, on the other hand, have a problem with helping someone sitting on their ASS, doing drugs, or nothing at all while I work. . . . Can you imagine how much money the state would save if people had to pass a urine test to get a public assistance check?

I guess we could title that program, ‘Urine or You’re Out’.

A lady goes to her priest one day and tells him, “Father, I have a
problem. I have two female talking parrots, but they only know how to
say one thing.”
What do they say?” the priest inquired.
The woman replies:”Well, Father, all they can say is:
‘Hello boys. Wanna have some fun?'”
That’s obscene!” the priest exclaimed. Then he thought for a moment.
“You know,” he said, “I may have a solution to your problem. I have
two male talking parrots whom I have taught to pray and read the
Bible. Bring your two female parrots over to my house, and we’ll put
them in the cage with Francis and Job. My parrots can teach your

parrots to praise and worship and your parrots are sure to stop

saying that phrase…in time.”

“Thank you,” the woman responded, “this may very well be the solution.”

The next day, she brought her female parrots to the priest’s house.

As he ushered her in, she saw that his two male parrots were inside

their cage, holding rosary beads and praying. Impressed, she walked

over and placed her parrots in with them. After a few minutes, the

female parrots cried out in unison: “Hello boys. Wanna have some fun?”


There was a stunned silence. Finally, one male parrot looked over at

the other male parrot and exclaimed,

“Put away your beads, Frank, our prayers have been answered!”

 December 23rd 2008

Please Print out and carry with you in case you forget what to do.*

1. Avoid carrot sticks. Anyone who puts carrots on a holiday buffet
knows nothing of the Christmas spirit. In fact, if you see carrots,
immediately. Go next door, where they’re serving rum balls.

2. Drink as much eggnog as you can. And quickly. It’s rare.. You
find it any other time of year but now. So drink up! Who cares that
it has
10,000 calories in every sip? It’s not as if you’re going to turn
into an
eggnog-alcoholic or something. It’s a treat. Enjoy it. Have one for
Have two. It’s later than you think. It’s Christmas!

3. If something comes with gravy, use it. That’s the whole point of
Gravy does not stand alone. Pour it on. Make a volcano out of your
potatoes. Fill it with gravy. Eat the volcano. Repeat.

4. As for mashed potatoes, always ask if they’re made with skim milk
whole milk. If it’s skim, pass. Why bother? It’s like buying a sports
with an automatic transmission.

5. Do not have a snack before going to a party in an effort to
control your
eating. The whole point of going to a Christmas party is to eat other
people’s food for free. Lots of it. Hello?

6. Under no circumstances should you exercise between now and New
You can do that in January when you have nothing else to do. This is
time for long naps, which you’ll need after circling the buffet table
carrying a 10-pound plate of food and that vat of eggnog.

7. If you come across something really good at a buffet table, like
Christmas cookies in the shape and size of Santa, position yourself
them and don’t budge. Have as many as you can before becoming the
center of
attention. They’re like a beautiful pair of shoes. If you leave them
you’re never going to see them again.

8. Same for pies. Apple**,**Pumpkin**,** Mincemeat. Have a slice of
each. Or
if you don’t like mincemeat, have two apples and one pumpkin. Always
three. When else do you get to have more than one dessert? Labor

9. Did someone mention fruitcake? Granted, it’s loaded with the
celebratory calories, but avoid it at all cost. I mean, have some

10. One final tip: If you don’t feel terrible when you leave the
party or
get up from the table, you haven’t been paying attention. Re-read
start over, but hurry, January is just around the corner. Remember
motto to live by:

“Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid
sideways, chocolate in one hand, body thoroughly used up, totally
out and screaming “WOO HOO what a ride!”

25. Did you ever notice that when you blow in a dog’s face, he gets mad at you, but when you take him for a car ride; he sticks his head out the window?

~ Author Unknown frappe’d from Crocheters’ Christmas by Yane ~


‘Twas the night before Christmas and all around me
There was unfinished Quilting, not under the tree,
The stockings weren’t hung by the chimney with care
‘Cause the heels and the toes had not been stitched there.

Tab, Jaz, Olie & Travis were nestled all snug in their beds,
But I had not finished the quilts for neneath their heads.
Jim was asleep-he was no help at all.
And the lap quilt for him was 12 inches square, too small.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I put down my hoop to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash.
Tripped over my fat quarters and fell down in my stash.

The tangle of threads yarns and flosses that lay deep as the snow;
reminded me how far I still had to go.
When out on the lawn I heard such a noise,
I was sure it would wake up both Jim and out joys.

And although I was tired-my brain a bit thick,
I knew in a moment that it must be St Nick.
Yet what I heard left me very perplex-ed
For nothing I heard was what I expect-ed.

“Move Andover! Move Benartex! Move Clothworks and Clover!
Move Hoffman! Move Moda! Move Free Spirit! Move over!
RJR, don’t circle around, just stand there in line.
Pay attention you ponies and you’ll work out just fine!

I know this is hard as it’s just your first year
but I’d hate to go back to 8 tiny reindeer.”
I peered over the sill. What I saw was amazing:
Eight patchwork ponies on my lawn all a-grazing!

And then in a twinkle, I heard at the door
Santa’s big boots stomping on the porch floor.
I rose from my knees and got back on my feet.
As I turned around, St Nick I did meet.

He was dressed all in cotton from his head to his toe
And his clothes were hand quilted from above to below.
A bright Makower UK Vest he wore on his back.
And his toys were all stuffed in a Timeless Treasures Sack.

His hat was a wonder of Yo-yos and lace
A beautiful frame for his rosy red face.
The scarf on his neck Marcus Bothers Masterpiece,
And the socks peeking over his boots were South Seas Imports.

On the back of his mitts was an intricate Crazy Quilt.
And suddenly on one I spotted a small label:
“S.C.” in duplicate on the cuff.
So I asked, “Hey, Nick, did YOU quilt all this stuff?”

He proudly replied, “Ho, ho, ho, yes I did.
I learned how to quilt when I was just a kid.”
He was chubby and plump, a well dressed old man,
And I laughed to myself, for I’d thought up a plan.

I flashed him a grin and jumped up in the air,
And the next thing he knew, he was tied to a chair.
He spoke not a word, but looked down in his lap
Where I had laid my hoop, quilt and needle for a runner.

He began then to Quilt, first one runner then 2-
For the first time I thought I might really get through.
He put prairie points on the baby quilt and 3-D bowtie blocks together,
While I sat back drinking a Mt. Dew cold from the frige.

Quickly like magic his needle, thread and thimble, they flew,
Good Grief! He was finished by two!
He sprang for his sleigh when I let him go free,
And over his shoulder he looked back at me.
I heard him explain as he sailed past the moon,
“Next year, start your quilting sometime around JUNE!”


The police officer got out of his car as the kid who was stopped for
speeding rolled down his window. ‘I’ve been waiting for you all day,’
the officer said. The kid replied, Yeah, well I got here as fast as I could.’
When the cop finally stopped laughing, he sent the kid on his way without a ticket.


A truck driver was driving along on the freeway and noticed a sign that
read: Low Bridge Ahead. Before he knows it, the bridge is right in front
of him and his truck gets wedged under it. Cars are backed up for miles.
Finally a police car comes up. The cop gets out of his car and walks to
the truck driver, puts his hands on his hips and says, ‘Got stuck, huh?’ The
truck driver says, ‘No, I was delivering this bridge and I ran out of


A college teacher reminds her class of tomorrow’s final exam. ‘Now
class, I won’t tolerate any excuses for you not being here tomorrow. I might
consider a nuclear attack or a serious personal injury, illness, or a
death in your immediate family, but that’s it, no other excuses whatsoever!’ A
smart-ass student in the back of the room raised his hand and asked,
‘What would you say if tomorrow I said I was suffering from complete and utter
sexual exhaustion?’ The entire class is reduced to laughter and snickering
When silence was restored, the teacher smiled knowingly at the student,
shook her head and sweetly said, ‘Well, I guess you’d have to write the
exam with your other hand.’


A woman is standing nude looking in the bedroom mirror. She is not
happy with what she sees and says to her husband, ‘I feel horrible; I look
old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a compliment.’ The husband
replies, ‘Your eyesight’s damn near perfect.


It was mealtime during  an airline flight.  ‘Would you like dinner?’
the flight attendant asked John, seated in front.  ‘What are my choices?’
John asked.  ‘Yes or no,’ she  replied.


A flight attendant was stationed at the departure gate to check
tickets. As a man approached, she extended her hand for the ticket and he opened
his trench coat and flashed her. Without missing a beat, she said, ‘Sir, I
need to see your ticket, not your stub.’


A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store but
she couldn’t find one big enough for her family. She asked a stock boy,
‘ Do these turkeys get any bigger?’

The music is really loud, so you time your farts with the beat. After a couple of songs, you start to feel better as you approach your stop.

As you are leaving the bus, people are really staring you down, and that’s when you remember: you’ve been listening to your IPod.
