A defendant was on trial for murder. There was strong evidence indicating guilt, but there was no
corpse. In the defense's closing statement the lawyer, knowing that his client would probably be
convicted, resorted to a trick. "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I have a surprise for you all,"
the lawyer said as he looked at his watch. "Within one minute, the person presumed dead in this case
will walk into this courtroom." He looked toward the courtroom door. The jurors, somewhat stunned,
all looked on eagerly. A minute passed. Nothing happened. Finally the lawyer said, "Actually, I made
up the previous statement. But, you all looked on with anticipation. I therefore put to you that you
have a reasonable doubt in this case as to whether anyone was killed and insist that you return a
verdict of not guilty." The jury, clearly confused,retired to deliberate. A few minutes later, the
jury returned and pronounced a verdict of guilty. "But how?" inquired the lawyer. "You must have had
some doubt; I saw all of you stare at the door." The jury foreman replied, "Oh, we looked, but your
A woman was shopping at her local supermarket where she selected:
a half-gallon of 2% milk,
a carton of eggs,
a quart of orange juice,
a head of romaine lettuce,
a 2 lb. can of coffee,
and a 1 lb. package of bacon.
As she was unloading her items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind her watched
as she placed the items in front of the cashier. While the cashier was ringing up her purchases, the
drunk calmly stated, "You must be single." The woman was a bit startled by this proclamation, but she
was intrigued by the derelict's intuition, since she was indeed single. She looked at her six items on
the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about her selections that could have tipped off the drunk
to her marital status. Curiosity getting the better of her, she said "Well, you know what, you're
absolutely correct. But how on earth did you know that?" The drunk replied, "Cause you're ugly."
An Amish boy and his father were in a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but
especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and then slide back together again.
The boy asked, "What is this Father?" The father (never having seen an elevator) responded, "Son,
I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is." While the boy and his father
were watching with amazement, an obese older woman in a wheel chair moved up to the moving walls and
pressed a button. The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room. The walls closed
and the boy and his father watched the small circular numbers above the walls light up sequentially.
They continued to watch until it reached the last number and then the numbers began to light in the
reverse order. Finally the walls opened up again and a gorgeous 24-year-old blonde stepped out. The
father, not taking his eyes off the young woman, said quietly to his son, "Go get your mother."
As President Bush gets off the helicopter in front of the White House, he is carrying a baby pig under
each arm. The Marine guard snaps to attention, salutes, and says: "Nice pigs, sir." The President
replies: "These are not pigs, these are authentic Texan Razorback Hogs. I got one for Vice-President
Cheney, and I got one for Defense Secretary Rumsfeld." The Marine again snaps to attention, salutes,
and says, "Nice trade, sir"
My boss was complaining in a staff meeting the other day that he wasn't getting any respect. Later that
morning he went out and got a small sign that read, "I'm the Boss". He then taped it to his office door.
Later that day when he returned from lunch, he found that someone had taped a note to the sign that
said, "Your wife called, she wants her sign back!"
A big city lawyer went duck hunting in rural Tennessee. He shot and dropped a bird, but it fell into a
farmer's field on the other side of a fence. As the lawyer climbed over the fence, an elderly farmer
drove up on his tractor and asked him what he was doing. The litigator responded, "I shot a duck and it
fell in this field, and now I'm going to retrieve it." The old farmer replied, "This is my property,
and you are not coming over here." The indignant lawyer said, "I am one of the best trial attorneys in
the United States and, if you don't let me get that duck, I'll sue you and take everything you own.
The old farmer smiled and said, "Apparently, you don't know how we settle disputes in Tennessee. We
settle small disagreements like this with the "Three Kick Rule." The lawyer asked, "What is the Three
Kick Rule?" The Farmer replied, "Well, because the dispute occurs on my land, first I kick you three
times and then you kick me three times and so on back and forth until someone gives up." The attorney
quickly thought about the proposed contest and decided that he could easily take the old codger. He
agreed to abide by the local custom. The old farmer slowly climbed down from the tractor and walked up
to the attorney. His first kick planted the toe of his heavy steel toed work boot into the lawyer's
groin and dropped him to his knees. His second kick to the midriff sent the lawyer's last meal gushing
from his mouth. The lawyer was on all fours when the farmer's third kick to his rear end sent him
face-first into a fresh cow pie. The lawyer summoned every bit of his will and managed to get to his
feet. Wiping his face with the arm of his jacket, he said, "Okay, Now it's my turn." The old farmer
smiled and said, "Naw, I give up. You can have the duck."
Little Johnny is sitting in his math class when his good looking female teacher asks him, 'If three
birds are sitting on a telephone wire, and a hunter comes along and shoots one of the birds, how many
birds are left?' Johnny answers, 'None.' The teacher says, 'No Johnny, that's wrong. If there are three
birds, and the hunter shoots one, how many are left?' 'None.' 'No Johnny, that's wrong! How do you
figure?' Johnny explains, 'When the hunter shoots his gun, the birds fly away, so there are none left.'
'Oh, I see. Well that's not the answer that I was looking for, but I like the way you're thinking;' she
says. Johnny starts in, 'Well, ok then. I have a question for you. Three women are sitting on a curb
eating Popsicles. The first one is licking her Popsicle, the second is sucking her Popsicle, and the
third is biting her Popsicle. Which one of the women is married?'The teacher stammers, 'Well, let me
see. I guess the one who is sucking her popsicle?' 'No, actually its the one with the wedding ring,
but I like the way you're thinking.'
A man was being tailgated by a stressed-out woman on a busy boulevard. Suddenly, the light turned
yellow, just in front of him. He did the right thing, stopping at the crosswalk, even though he could
have beaten the red light by accelerating through the intersection. The tailgating woman hit the roof,
and the horn, screaming in frustration as she missed her chance to get through the intersection with
him. As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her window and looked up into the face of a very
serious police officer. The officer ordered her to exit her car with her hands up. He took her to the
police station. After a couple of hours, she was escorted back to the booking desk where the arresting
officer was waiting with her personal effects. He said, "I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I
pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your horn, flipping the guy off in front of you, and
cussing a blue streak at him. I noticed the 'Choose Life' license plate holder, the 'What Would Jesus
Do' bumper sticker, the 'Follow Me to Sunday School' bumper sticker, and the chrome- plated Christian
fish emblem on the trunk. Naturally, I assumed you had stolen the car."
On the outskirts of a small town, there was a big, old pecan tree just inside the cemetery fence. One
day, two boys filled up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began dividing
the nuts. "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for me," said one boy. Several dropped and rolled
down toward the fence. Another boy came riding along the road on his bicycle. As he passed, he thought
he heard voices from inside the cemetery. He slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, "One
for you, one for me. One for you, one for me." He just knew what it was. He jumped back on his bike
and rode off. Just around the bend he met an old man with a cane, hobbling along. "Come here quick,"
said the boy, "you won't believe what I heard! Satan and the Lord are down at the cemetery dividing up
the souls." The man said, "Beat it kid, can't you see it's hard for me to walk." When the boy insisted
though, the man hobbled to the cemetery. Standing by the fence they heard, "One for you, one for me.
One for you, one for me..." The old man whispered, "Boy, you've been tellin' the truth. Let's see if
we can see the Lord." Shaking with fear, they peered through the fence yet were still unable to see
anything. The old man and the boy gripped the wrought iron bars of the fence tighter and tighter as
they tried to get a glimpse of the Lord. At last they heard, "One for you, one for me. That's all.
Now let's go get those nuts by the fence and we'll be done." They say the old man made it back to town
a full 5 minutes ahead of the boy on the bike.
Police Officer O'Leary is cruising around in his patrol car one night. He is on the lookout for trouble.
He sees two little old ladies in the front seat of a Chevrolet convertible, parked in Honest John's used
car lot. The car lot is closed, so O'Leary drives up alongside the Chevy and asks, "Are you two ladies
trying to steal this car?" "Certainly not," says one of the ladies, "we purchased the car this afternoon."
"Well," says the cop, "why don't you start it up and drive out of here?" "We don't drive," replies the
other little old lady. "And besides we are waiting. We were told that if we bought a car here we would
A husband is at home watching a football game when his wife interrupts, honey, could you fix the
light in the hallway? It's been flickering for weeks now. He look at her and says angrily, fix
the lights now? Does it look like i have ge written on my forehead? I don't think so. Fine, then
the wife asks, well then, could you fix the fridge door? It won't close right. To which he
replied, fix the fridge door? Does it look like i have westinghouse written on my forehead? I
don't think so fine, she says then you could at least fix the steps to the front door? They are
about to break. I'm not a damn carpenter and i don't want to fix steps. He says, does it look like
i have ace hardware written on my forehead? I don't think so. I've had enough of you. I'm going
to the bar!!!! So he goes to the bar and drinks for a couple of hours. He starts to feel guilty
about how he treated his wife, and decides to go home. As he walks into the house he notices that
the steps are already fixed. As he enters the house, he sees the hall light is working. As he goes
to get a beer, he notices the fridge door is fixed. Honey, he asks, how'd all this get fixed?
She said, well, when you left i sat outside and cried. Just then a nice young man asked me what
was wrong, and i told him. He offered to do all the repairs, and all i had to do was either go
to bed with him or bake a cake. He said, so what kind of cake did you bake? She replied,
hellooooo.... Do you see betty crocker written on my forehead? I don't think so!
A kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom of children while they were drawing. She walked
around to look at the artwork. As she got to one little girl who was working diligently, she asked
what the drawing was. The girl replied, "I'm drawing God." The teacher paused and said, "But no one
knows what God looks like." Without missing a beat, or looking up from her drawing the girl replied,
"They will in a minute."
Jesus and Satan were having an ongoing argument about who was better on the computer. They had been
going at it for days, and God was tired of hearing all the bickering. Finally, God said, "Cool it.
I am going to set up a test which will take two hours and I will judge who does the better job." So
Satan and Jesus sat down at the keyboards and typed away. They moused. They did spreadsheets. They
wrote reports. They sent faxes. They sent e-mail. They sent out e-mail with attachments. They
downloaded. They did some genealogy reports. They made cards. They did every known job. But, ten
minutes before the time was up, lightning suddenly flashed across the sky, thunder rolled, the rain
poured, and of course the electricity went off. Satan stared at his blank screen and screamed in
every curse word known in the underworld. Jesus just sighed. The electricity finally flickered back
on, and each of them restarted their computers. Satan started searching frantically screaming,
"It's gone! It's all gone! I lost everything when the power went out!" Meanwhile, Jesus quietly
started printing out all his files from the past two hours. Satan observed this and became even more
irate. "Wait! He cheated! How did he do it??!!" God shrugged and said, "Jesus Saves."

Tired of constantly being broke and stuck in an unhappy marriage, a young husband decided to solve
both problems by taking out a large insurance policy on his wife, with himself as the beneficiary,
and arranging to have her killed. A "friend of a friend" put him in touch with a nefarious underworld
figure who went by the name of "Artie." Artie explained to the husband that his going price for snuffing
out a spouse was $5,000. The husband said he was willing to pay that amount but that he wouldn't have
any cash on hand until he could collect his wife's insurance money. Artie insisted on being paid
something up front. The man opened up his wallet, displaying the single dollar bill that rested inside.
Artie sighed, rolled his eyes, and reluctantly agreed to accept the dollar as down payment for the
dirty deed. A few days later, Artie followed the man's wife to the local Safeway grocery store.
There, he surprised her in the produce department and proceeded to strangle her with his gloved
hands. As the poor unsuspecting woman drew her last breath and slumped to the floor the manager of
the produce department stumbled unexpectedly onto the scene. Unwilling to leave any witnesses behind,
Artie had no choice but to strangle the produce manager as well. Unknown to Artie, the entire
proceedings were captured by hidden camera and observed by the store's security guard, who immediately
called the police. Artie was caught and arrested before he could leave the store. Under intense questioning
at the police station, Artie revealed the sordid plan, including his financial arrangements with the
hapless husband. And that is why, the next day in the newspaper, the headline declared:
[You're going to hate me for this]: ARTIE CHOKES TWO FOR A DOLLAR AT SAFEWAY
The CIA had an opening for an assassin. After all of the background checks, interviews, and
testing were done there were three finalists - two men and one woman. For the final test, the
CIA agents took one of the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun. "We must know that
you will follow your instructions, no matter what the circumstances. Inside this room you will
find your wife sitting in a chair. You have to kill her." The first man said."You can't be
serious. I could never shoot my wife," The agent replies, "Then you're not the right man for this
job." The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went into the room. All
was quiet for about five minutes. Then the agent came out with tears in his eyes. "I tried, but I
can't kill my wife." The agent replies, "You don't have what it takes. Take your wife and go home."
Finally, it was the woman's turn. Only she was told to kill her husband. She took the gun and went
into the room. Shots were heard, one shot after another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging
on the walls. After a few minutes, all was quiet. The door opened slowly and there stood the woman.
She wiped the sweat from her brow and said, "You guys didn't tell me the gun was loaded with
blanks. So I had to beat him to death with the chair."
A shepherd was herding his flock in a remote pasture when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced out
of the dust cloud towards him. The driver, a young man in a Broni suit, Gucci shoes, Ray Ban
sunglasses and YSL tie, leaned out the window and asked the shepherd, "If I tell you exactly how
many sheep you have in your flock, will you give me one?" The shepherd looked at the man,
obviously a yuppie, then looked at his peacefully grazing flock and calmly answered, "Sure."
The yuppie parked his car, whipped out his notebook and connected it to a cell phone, then he
surfed to a NASA page on the internet where he called up a GPS satellite navigation system,
scanned the area, and then opened up a database and an Excel spreadsheet with complex formulas.
He sent an email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, received a response. Finally, he
prints out a 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized printer then turns to the shepherd and
says, "You have exactly 1586 sheep." "That is correct; take one of the sheep." said the shepherd.
He watches the young man select one of the animals and bundle it into his car. Then the shepherd
says: " If I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my sheep?" "OK,
why not." answered the young man. "Clearly, you are a consultant." said the shepherd. "That's
correct," says the yuppie, "but how did you guess that?" "No guessing required." answers the
shepherd. "You turned up here although nobody called you. You want to get paid for an answer I
already knew, to a question I never asked, and you don't know crap about my business. Now give
me back my dog."
At London's Heathrow Airport today, an individual, later discovered to be a public school
teacher, was arrested trying to board a flight while in possession of a compass, a protractor,

He is being charged with carrying weapons of math instruction.
Two five year old boys are standing at the toilet to pee. One says, "Your thing doesn't have any
skin on it!". "I've been circumcised," the other replied. "What's that mean?" "It means they
cut the skin off the end." "How old were you when it was cut off?" "My mom said I was two days
old." "Did it hurt?" the kid asked inquiringly. "You bet it hurt, I didn't walk for a year!"
A pastor wanted to raise money for his church and on being told† that there was a fortune in
horse raising, he decided to purchase one and enter it in the races. However, at the local
auction, the going price for a horse was so† high that he ended up buying a donkey instead. He
figured that since† he had it, he might as well go ahead and enter it in the races. To his
surprise, the donkey came in third. The next day the local paper carried this headline:
PASTOR'S ASS SHOWS The pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in† the race
again, and this time it won. The local paper read: PASTOR'S ASS OUT FRONT The Bishop was so
upset with this kind of publicity that he† ordered the pastor not to enter the donkey in another
race. The next day, the local paper headline read: BISHOP SCRATCHES PASTOR'S ASS This was too
much for the bishop, so he ordered the pastor to get† rid of the donkey. The pastor decided to
give it to a nun in a nearby convent. The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following
headline the next day: NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN The bishop fainted. He informed the nun that
she would have to† get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for ten dollars. The next
day the paper read: NUN SELLS ASS FOR $10.00. This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered
the nun to buy† back the donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild. The next day
the headlines read: NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE. The bishop was buried the next day!
For months, Mrs. Pitzel had been nagging her husband to go with her to the seance parlor of
Madame Freda. "Milton, she's a real gypsy, and she brings the voices of the dead into our world.
We all talk to them! Last week, I spoke with my mother, may she rest in peace. Milton, for
twenty dollars you can talk to your Zayde (grandfather) who you misses so much!" Milton Pitzel
could not resist. At the very next seance at Madam Freda's Seance Parlor, Milton sat under the
colored light at the green table, holding hands with the person on each side. They were all
humming, "Oooom, oooom, tonka tooom." Madame Freda, her eyes lost in a trance, was making passes
over a crystal ball. "My medium... Vashtri," she called. "Come in. Who is that with you? Who?
Mr. Pitzel? Milton Pitzel's Zayde?" Milton swallowed the lump in his throat and called,
"Grandpa? Zayde?" "Ah, Milteleh?" a thin voice quavered. "Yes! Yes!" cried Milton. "This is your
Milton! Grandfather, are you happy in the other world?" "Milteleh, I am in bliss. I am with your
Bubbie, we laugh, we sing. We gaze upon the shining face of the Lord!" Milton asked his Zayde a
dozen more questions, and his Zayde answered each one until Zayde said, "So now, Milteleh, I have
to go. The angels are calling. I can answer only one more question. Ask. Ask." "Zayde," sighed
Milton, "When did you learn to speak English?"
A visitor to Israel attended a recital and concert at the Moscovitz Auditorium. He was quite
impressed with the architecture and the acoustics. He inquired of the tour guide, "Is this
magnificent auditorium named after Chaim Moscovitz, the famous Talmudic scholar?"† "No," replied
the guide. "It is named after Sam Moscovitz the writer. "Never heard of him. What did he write?"
"A check," replied the guide.
An airline's passenger cabin was being served by an obviously gay
flight attendant, who seemed to put everyone into a good mood as he
served them food and drinks. As the plane prepared to descend, he came
swishing down the aisle and announced to the passengers, "Captain Marvey
has asked me to announce that he'll be landing the big scary plane shortly,
lovely people, so if you could just put up your trays that would be super."
On his trip back up the aisle, he noticed that a well-dressed, rather exotic
looking woman hadn't moved a muscle. "Perhaps you didn't hear me over those
big brute engines. I asked you to raise your trazy-poo so the main man can
pitty-pat us on the ground." She calmly turned her head and said, "In my
country, I am called a Princess. I take orders from no one." To which the
flight attendant replied, without missing a beat, "Well, sweet-cheeks, in
my country, I'm called a Queen. I outrank you. So tray-up bitch."
A woman and a man are involved in a car accident; it's a bad one. Both of
their cars are totally demolished but amazingly neither of them is hurt.
After they crawl out of their cars, the woman says, "So you're a man. That's
interesting. Wow, just look at our cars! There's nothing left, but we're
unhurt. This must be a sign from God that we should meet and be friends and
live together in peace for the rest of our days". Flattered, the man replied,
"Oh yes, I agree with you completely! This must be a sign from God!"
The woman continued, " Look at this, here's another miracle. My car is
completely demolished but this bottle of wine didn't break. Surely God
wants us to drink this wine and celebrate our good fortune."
Then she hands the bottle to the man. The man nods his head in agreement,
opens it and drinks half the bottle and then hands it back to the woman. The
woman takes the bottle and immediately puts the cap back on, and hands it
back to the man. The man asks, "Aren't you having any?"
The woman replies, "No. I think I'll just wait for the police...."
Sister Mary Katherine entered the Monastery of Silence. The Priest said, "Sister, this is a
silent monastery. You are welcome here as long as you like, but you may not speak until I direct
you to do so." Sister Mary Katherine lived in the monastery for 5 years before the Priest said to
her, "Sister Mary Katherine, you have been here for 5 years. You may speak two words." Sister Mary
Katherine said, "Hard bed." "I'm sorry to hear that," the Priest said, "We will get you a better
bed." After another 5 years, the Priest called Sister Mary Katherine. "You may say another two
words, Sister Mary Katherine." "Cold food," said Sister Mary Katherine, and the Priest assured
her that the food would be better in the future. On her 15th anniversary at the monastery,
the Priest again called Sister Mary Katherine into his office. "You may say two words today.
"I quit," said Sister Mary Katherine. "It's probably best," said the Priest.
"You've done nothing but bitch since you got here."
A magician worked on a cruise ship. The audience was different each week, so the magician did the
same tricks over and over again. One problem: The captain's parrot saw the shows each week and
began to understand how the magician did every trick. Once he understood, he started shouting in
the middle of the show: "Look, it's not the same hat!" "Look, he's hiding the flowers under the
table." "Hey, why are all the cards the ace of spades?" The magician was furious, but couldn't do
anything. It was, after all, the captain's parrot. Then the ship sank. The magician found himself
on a piece of wood in the middle of the sea with, as fate would have it, the parrot. They stared
at each other with hatred, but did not utter a word. This went on for a day and then another and
then another. Finally on the fourth day, the parrot could not hold back: "OK, I give up. Where's
the f*cking ship?"
Did you hear about the Texas teacher who was helping one of her kindergarten students put on his
cowboy boots? He asked for help and she could see why. Even with her pulling and him pushing, the
little boots still didn't want to go on. Finally, when the second boot was on, she had worked up
a sweat. She almost cried when the little boy said, "Teacher, they're on the wrong feet." She
looked and sure enough, they were. It wasn't any easier pulling the boots off than it was putting
them on. She managed to keep her cool as together they worked to get the boots back on - this time
on the right feet. He then announced, "These aren't my boots." She bit her tongue rather than get
right in his face and scream, "Why didn't you say so?" like she wanted to. And, once again she
struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off his little feet. No sooner they got the boots
off and he said, "They're my brother's boots. My Mom made me wear 'em." Now she didn't know if she
should laugh or cry. But, she mustered up the grace and courage she had left to wrestle the boots
on his feet again. Helping him into his coat, she asked, "Now, where are your mittens?" He said,
"I stuffed 'em in the toes of my boots." (Her trial starts next month.)
This guy sees a sign in front of a house "Talking Dog for Sale." He rings the bell and the owner
tells him the dog is in the back yard. The guy goes into the back yard and sees a mutt sitting
there. "You talk?" he asks. "Yep," the mutt replies. "So, what's your story?" The mutt looks up
and says, "Well, I discovered this gift pretty young and I wanted to help the government, so I told
the CIA about my gift, and in no time they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms
with spies and world leader, cause no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping. I was one of their
most valuable spies eight years running. The jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I
wasn't getting any younger and I wanted to settle down. So I signed up for a job at the airport
to do some undercover security work, mostly wandering near suspicious characters and listening in.
I uncovered some incredible dealings there and was awarded a batch of medals. Had a wife, a mess
of puppies, and now I'm just retired." The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what
he wants for the dog. The owner says "Ten dollars." The guy says he'll buy him but asks the
owner, "This dog is amazing. Why on earth are you selling him for $10?" The owner replies,
"He's such a liar."
Two brooms were hanging in the closet and after a while they got to know each other so well,

The little girl in turn puts her hands on her knees, leans forward and says in a quiet sweet voice: "I don't fink my pyfon weally gives a thit."
An unemployed man went to apply for a job with Microsoft as a janitor. The manager there arranges for him to take an aptitude test. After the test, the manager says, "You will be employed as a janitor at minimum wage, $5.15 an hour. Let me have your e mail address, so that I can send you a form to complete and tell you where to report for work on your first day."
Taken aback, the man protests that he has neither a computer nor an e-mail address. To this the MS manager replies,
"Well, then, that means that you virtually don't exist and can therefore hardly expect to be employed by Microsoft."
Stunned, the man leaves. Not knowing where to turn and having only $10.00 in his wallet, he buys a 25 lb flat of tomatoes at the supermarket. In less than two hours, he sells all the tomatoes individually at 100% profit.
Repeating the process several times more that day, he ends up with almost $100.00 before going to sleep that night. Thus it dawns on him that he could quite easily make a living selling tomatoes. Getting up early every day and going to bed late, he multiplies his profits quickly. After a short time he acquires a cart to transport several dozen boxes of tomatoes, only to have to
trade it in again so that he can buy a pickup truck to support his expanding business. By the end of the second year, he is the owner of a fleet of pickup trucks and manages a staff of a hundred former unemployed people, all selling
tomatoes. Planning for the future of his wife and children, he decides to buy some life insurance. Consulting with an insurance adviser, he picks an insurance plan to fit his new circumstances. At the end of the telephone conversation, the adviser asks him for his e-mail address in order to send the final documents electronically. When the man replies that he has no e-mail, the adviser is stunned. "What, you don't have e-mail? How on earth have you managed to amass such wealth without the Internet, e-mail and e-commerce? Just imagine where you would be now, if you had been connected to the Internet from the very start!" "Well," replied the tomato millionaire, "I would be a janitor at Microsoft!"
By definition, a fable must have a moral-this one has four:
1. The Internet, e-mail and e-commerce do not need to rule your life.
2. If you don't have e-mail, but work hard, you can still become a millionaire.
3. Since you got this story via e-mail, you're probably closer to becoming a janitor than you are to becoming a millionaire.
4. If you do have a computer and e-mail, you have already been taken to the cleaners by Microsoft.
Doctor Dave had slept with one of his patients and felt guilty all day
long. No matter how much he tried to forget about it, he couldn't. The guilt and sense of betrayal were overwhelming. But every once in a while he'd hear an internal, reassuring voice that said:
"Dave, don't worry about it. You aren't the first doctor to sleep with one of their patients
and you won't be the last. And you're single. Just let it go..." But invariably the other voice would bring him back to reality:
"Dave, you're a veterinarian ..."
The owner of a well-established, very well respected, third generation family owned garment business met with his Board of Directors. Due to the recession, business had been very bad. Sales were down and costs were up. The owner and his wife had poured every penny they had back into the business in the hope of keeping it afloat, but still ... things looked very precarious.
The Board of Directors offered no solutions, so as a last resort the owner decided to seek advice from his Rabbi. He poured out the story, with tears running down his face about the three generations of family sacrifice that had gone into building this
once-thriving business. He ended by asking plaintively, "So Rabbi, what should I do?" The Rabbi, a very old and wise man, said nothing for a long time, and then quietly intoned: "So here's vat I vant you should do. Get a beach chair, and a Bible. Put dem in your car. Drive down to the water's edge. Sit in dis beach chair vit the Bible open on your lap, and let the vind from the sea rifle the pages of the open Bible ..." "Yes Rabbi ...yes?!..." encouraged the business owner, completely at a loss for any better ideas.
"... and ven the pages stop turning in the vind I vant you should look down at dat page, and read the first thing you see. And dat vill be vat you must do." pronounced the Rabbi with great certainty. A year passes ... and the business owner (not a very religious man) returns to pay a visit to the Rabbi. The man is wearing a brand new $2000 handmade Italian suit; his wife looked stunning in her new mink coat; they had driven to see the Rabbi in their brand BMW 740i Sedan. The business owner discretely pulled the Rabbi aside and slipped an envelope to him, stuffed with money. "Rabbi" he whispered, "this is a little something for you and your wife, and here's also a check for $25,000. toward your congregation.". The Rabbi, although very old, remembered the man. "So, you did vat I said?" "Absolutely!" "You vent to the beach?" "Yes I did!" "And you sat in the beach chair vit the Bible open on your lap?" "Yes Rabbi. Absolutely!" "And you let the vind rifle through the pages until they
stopped?" "Absolutely!" "And vat vere the first words that you read on that page?" "Chapter Eleven."
Vell, Ole and Lena went to the same
Lutheran Church. Lena went every Sunday and taught Sunday School. Ole went on Christmas and Easter and once
in a while, he went on one of the other Sundays. On one of those Sundays,
he was in the pew right behind Lena and he noticed vhat a fine looking
woman she was. Vhile dey were taking up the collection, Ole leaned forward and
said, "Hey, Lena, how about you and me go to dinner in New Ulm next Friday?"
"Yah, Ole, dot vould be nice," said Lena. Well, Ole couldn't believe his luck. All week long he polished up
his old Ford, and on Friday he picked Lena up and took her to the finest
restaurant in New Ulm. When they sat down, Ole looked over at Lena and said, "Hey, Lena,
vould you like a cocktail before dinner?" "Oh, no, Ole," said Lena. "Vat vould I tell my Sunday School class?"
Vell, Ole was set back a bit, so he didn't say much until after dinner.
Then he reached in his pocket and pulled out a pack of cigarettes. "Hey,
Lena," said Ole, "vould you like a smoke?" "Oh, no, Ole," said Lena. "Vat vould I tell my Sunday School class?"
Vell, Ole vas feeling pretty low after that, so he yust got in his Ford and
vas driving Lena home ven dey passed the Hot Springs Motel. He'd struck out twice already, so he figured he had nothing to lose.
"Hey, Lena," said Ole, "how vould you like to stop at that motel with me?" "Yah, Ole, dot vould be nice," said Lena.
Vell, Ole couldn't believe his luck. He did a U-turn right then and there across the median and everything, and drove back to the motel and
checked in vith Lena. The next morning Ole got up first. He looked at Lena lying there in
the bed, her hair all spread out on her pillow. "Vat have I done? Vat have I done?" thought Ole.
He shook Lena and she woke up. "Lena, I've got to ask you von ting," said Ole. "Vat are you going to tell your Sunday School class?"
"Lena said, "The same ting I alvays tell dem. You don't have to smoke and drink to have a good time!"

I normally avoid discussing any advice received
from our broker but felt this is important enough to share and warn you since this
explosive situation might prove to be another ENRON. Please review any holdings you might
have in the following stocks: American Can, Interstate Water, National Gas Company or the
Northern Tissue Company. Due to uncertain market conditions, we advise you to sit tight on
your American Can, hold your Water, and let go of your Gas. You may be interested to know
that Northern Tissue touched a new bottom today, and millions were wiped clean.
The other day I was in the local auto part store. A blond lady
came in and asked for a "seven ten cap". We all looked at each other and said,
"What's a seven ten cap?" She said "You know, it's right on the engine.
Mine got lost somehow and I need a new one." "What kind of a car is it on,"
they asked? Now I'm thinking maybe an old Datsun Seven Ten but no, she said its a Buick.
"OK lady, how big is it?" She makes a circle with her hands about 3 1/2 inches
in diameter. "What does it do?" we asked. She said, "I don't know, but its
always been there." One of us gave her a note pad and asked her if she could draw a
picture of it. So she makes a circle about 3 1/2 inches in diameter and in the center she
writes 710. The guys behind the counter are looking at it upside down as she writes
it...and they just fall down behind the counter laughing so hard in hysterics. One guy
said, "I think you want an oil cap." (Note: (for those of you that truly are
slow) If you read "710" upside down ... it is spells OIL!!)
