Just For Laughs
Why Men Are Just Happier People! What do you expect from such simple creatures…Their last name stays put. The garage is all theirs. Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just another snack. Car mechanics tell them the truth. The world is their urinal. Same work, more pay. Wrinkles add character. People never stare at their chest when they're talking to them. The occasional well-rendered belch is practically expected. New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet. One mood, all the time. Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase. They can open all their own jars. They get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness. The same hairstyle lasts for years, maybe decades. They don't have to shave below their neck. Their belly usually hides their big hips. One wallet and one pair of shoes, one color, all seasons. They can "do" their nails with a pocketknife.

"Great," Little Johnny replied. "Did you and daddy have a good time?" asked his mother. "Yeah, daddy really liked it too," exclaimed Little Johnny, "Especially when one of the animals came home at 30 to 1!"

On the Light Side
While shopping for vacation clothes, my husband and I passed a display of bathing suits. It had been at least ten years and twenty pounds since I had even considered buying a bathing suit, so sought my husband's advice. 'What do you think?' I asked. 'Should I get a bikini or an all-in-one?' 'Better get a bikini,' he replied. 'You'd never get it all in one!” And that’s when the fight started……
Where Did This Come From?
GO THE WHOLE NINE YARDS: To try your best at something Origin: During World War II, the fighter pilots were equipped with nine yards of ammunition. When they ran out, it meant that they had tried their best at fighting off the target with the entirety of their ammunition.
Idiot Sightings
IDIOT SIGHTING - September 1999 saw conflict in Jerusalem of an unusual nature, or so the Darwin Awards claim. Israel’s government switched from daylight savings time a year early to accommodate pre-sunrise prayers, while the Palestinian Authority refused to live on “Zionist time”. A group of Palestinians attempted to synchronize the detonation of two car bombs in the city. But the timers had been set on Palestinian time while the drivers were running on Israeli time. The bombs exploded an hour early, killing both.
