"Holy Prostitutes"
A man is driving down a deserted stretch of highway when he notices a sign out of the corner of his eye....It reads:
SISTERS OF ST. FRANCIS
HOUSE OF PROSTITUTION
10 MILES
He thinks this is a figment of his imagination and drives on without second thought....
Soon he sees another sign which reads:
SISTERS OF ST. FRANCIS
HOUSE OF PROSTITUTION
5 MILES
Suddenly he begins to realize that these signs are for real and drives past a third sign saying:
SISTERS OF ST. FRANCIS
HOUSE OF PROSTITUTION
NEXT RIGHT
His curiosity gets the best of him and he pulls into the drive. On the far side of the parking lot is a stone building with a small sign next to the door reading:
SISTERS OF ST. FRANCIS
He climbs the steps and rings the bell. The door is answered by a nun in a long black habit who asks, "What may we do for you my son?"
He answers, "I saw your signs along the highway and was interested in possibly doing business...."
"Very well my son. Please follow me." He is led through many winding passages and is soon quite disoriented. The nun stops at a closed door and tells the man, "Please knock on this door."
He does so and another nun in a long habit, holding a tin cup answers the door... This nun instructs, "Please place $100 in the cup then go through the large wooden door at the end of the hallway."
He puts $100 in the cup, eagerly trots down the hall and slips through the door pulling it shut behind him.
The door locks, and he finds himself back in the parking lot facing another sign:
GO IN PEACE.
YOU HAVE JUST BEEN SCREWED BY THE SISTERS OF ST. FRANCIS. SERVES YOU RIGHT, YOU SINNER

A Lawyer runs a stop sign and gets pulled over by a Sheriffs Deputy. He thinks that he is smarter than the Deputy because he is sure that he has a better education. ( Don't they all!! LOL :-)) He decides to prove this to himself and have some fun at the deputies expense........... 

 
Deputy says, "License and registration, please."
 

Lawyer says, "What for?"
 

Deputy says, "You didn't come to a complete stop at the stop sign "
 

Lawyer says, "I slowed down, and no one was coming."

Deputy says, "You still didn't come to a complete stop. License and registration, please." 

Lawyer says, "What's the difference?"
 

 
Deputy says, "The difference is, you have to come to a complete stop, that's the law. License and registration, please!"
 

 
Lawyer says, "If you can show me the legal difference between slow down and stop, I'll give you my license and registration and you give me the ticket,if not you let me go and no ticket."
 

Deputy says, "Exit your vehicle, sir."
 

At this point, the Deputy takes out his nightstick and starts beating the ever-loving *^&# out of the Lawyer and says:

"DO YOU WANT ME TO STOP OR JUST SLOW DOWN?" 

 

A college professor, an avowed atheist and active in the ACLU, was teaching his class. He shocked several of his students when he flatly stated that once and for all he was going to prove there was no God.  Addressing the ceiling, he shouted: 

"GOD, if you are real, then I want you to knock me off this platform.  I'll give you exactly 15 minutes!!!!!" 
 

The lecture room fell silent.  You could hear a pin drop.  Ten minutes went by. 

 " I'm waiting God.  If you're real, knock me off this platform!!!!" 

Again after 4 minutes, the professor taunted God saying, 

 "Here I am, God!!!  I'm still waiting!!!" 

His count down got down to the last couple of minutes when a SEAL, just released from the Navy after serving in Afghanistan and Iraq and newly  

registered in the class, walked up to the Professor.
 
The SEAL hit him full force in the face, and sent the Professor tumbling from his lofty platform.  

The Professor was out cold!!  The students were stunned and shocked. They began to babble in confusion.  The SEAL nonchalantly took his seat in the front row and sat silent.  The class looked at him and fell silent ..... waiting.  Eventually, the professor came to and was noticeably shaken.  He looked at the SEAL in the front row.  When the professor regained  his senses and could speak he asked: 

 "What the hell is the matter with you?! Why did you do that!?"

 "God was really busy protecting America's soldiers, who are protecting your right to say stupid crap and act like an jackass!!!  So he sent me!!"  

 

What can your dog do? 

> You may, or may not own a dog, but here is some great animal training.

> Four men were bragging about how smart their dogs are.>

> The first man was an Engineer, the second man was an Accountant, the third man was a Chemist, the fourth was a Government Worker.>

> To show off, the Engineer called to his dog, "T-square, do your stuff.">

> T-square pranced over to a desk, took out some paper and a pen and promptly drew a circle, a square, and a triangle.>

> Everyone agreed that was pretty smart.>

> But the Accountant said his dog could do better.

> He called his dog and said, "Spreadsheet, do your stuff.">

> Spreadsheet went out into the kitchen and returned with a

> dozen cookies. He divided them into 4 equal piles of 3

> cookies each.>

> Everyone agreed that was good.>

> But the Chemist said his dog could do better.

> He called his dog and said, "Measure, do your stuff.">

> Measure got up, walked over to the fridge, took out a quart of milk, got a 10 ounce glass from the cupboard and poured exactly 8 ounces without spilling a drop.>

> Everyone agreed that was good.>

> Then the three men turned to the Government Worker and said,

> "What can your dog do?">

> The Government Worker called to his dog and said, "Coffee Break, do your stuff.">

> Coffee Break jumped to his feet, ate the cookies, drank the milk, defecated on the paper, claimed he injured his back while doing so, filed a grievance report for unsafe working conditions, put in for Workers Compensation and went home for the rest of the day on sick leave.

 

In 2005, Noah's story may have gone something like this: 

 And the Lord spoke to Noah, and said, "In one year,  I am going to make it rain and the rain shall not stop until it submerges the entire earth and all living  flesh is destroyed. Because of this, I want you to  save the righteous people and two of every living  species on  earth. Therefore, I am commanding you to build an Ark." 

 In a flash of lightning, God delivered the specifications for an Ark.  Daunted by this task, but  respectful of God's wishes, Noah took the plans and  agreed to build the ark. 

"Remember," said the Lord, "you must complete the Ark and fill it in one year's time." 

Exactly a year later, fierce storm clouds covered the earth and all the seas of the earth went into a  tumult. The Lord saw that Noah was sitting in his  front yard weeping.  

"Noah!" He shouted. "Where is the Ark?"  

"Lord, please forgive me," cried Noah. "I did my best, but there were big problems. First, I had to get a permit for construction, and Your plans did 
not meet the building codes.  I had to hire an engineering firm and redraw the plans. 

Then I got into a fight with OSHA over whether or not  the Ark needed a sprinkler system and approved  floatation devices.  

Then, my neighbor objected, claiming I was violating zoning ordinances by building the Ark in my front yard, so I had to get a variance from the city planning commission. 

Then, I had problems getting enough wood for the Ark, because there was a ban on cutting trees to protect the Spotted Owl. I finally convinced the U.S. Forest Service that I really needed the wood to save the owls......

However, the Fish and Wildlife Service won't let me take the 2 owls. 

 
The carpenters formed a union and went on strike. I had to negotiate a settlement with the National Labor Relations Board before anyone would pick up a saw or hammer. Now, I have 16 carpenters on the Ark, but still no owls. 

When I started rounding up the other animals, an animal rights group sued me. They objected to me taking only two of each kind aboard. This suit is pending. 

Meanwhile, the EPA notified me that I could not complete the Ark without filing an environmental impact statement on Your proposed flood. They didn't take very kindly to the idea that they had no jurisdiction over the conduct of the taxes since all I had was a command from Creator of the Universe. 

Then, the Army Corps of Engineers demanded a map of the proposed flood plain. I sent them a globe.  

Right now, I am trying to resolve a complaint filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that I am practicing discrimination by not taking atheists aboard.  

The IRS has seized my assets, claiming that I'm building the Ark in preparation to flee the country to avoid paying the state that I owe them some kind of 
user tax and failed to register the Ark as a  'recreational water craft'

And, finally, the ACLU got the courts to issue an injunction against further construction of the Ark, saying that since God is flooding the earth, it's a religious event, and, therefore unconstitutional. 

Lord, I really don't think I can finish the Ark for another five or six years." 

Noah waited.  

The sky began to clear, the sun began to shine, and the seas began to calm.  A rainbow arced across the sky. Noah looked up hopefully. "You mean you're not going to destroy the earth, Lord?" 

"No," God said sadly. "I don't have to. ......The government already has."

 

A womans funeral.

>  A funeral service is being held for a woman who has just passed 

>  away. At the end of the service the pall bearers are carrying the

>  They hear a faint moan. They open the casket and find that the

> finally dies. A ceremony is again held at the same place, and at the 

> end of the ceremony the pall bearers are again carrying out the

Here is some Irish humor. 
Please note the Knight putting the humor on this page is proud to be Irish himself. 


"An Irish Prayer"
Murphy was staggering home with a pint of booze in his back pocket when
he
slipped and fell heavily. Struggling to his feet, he felt something wet
running down his leg. Please Lord," he implored, "let it be blood!!"


 

                           "Irish Shopping"
McQuillan walked into a bar and ordered martini after martini, each
time
removing the olives and placing them in a jar. When the jar was filled
with
olives and all the drinks consumed, the Irishman started to leave.
"S' cuse me", said a customer, who was puzzled over what McQuillan had
done, "what was that all about?" "Nothin', said the Irishman, "my wife
just
sent me out for a jar of olives!"

 

                     "You've Been Out Drinking Again"
An Irishman had been drinking at a pub all night. The bartender finally
said that the bar is closing. So the Irishman stood up to leave fell
flat
on his face. He tried to stand one more time; same result. He figured
he'll
crawl outside and get some fresh air and maybe that will sober him up.
Once
outside, he stood up and fell on his face again. So he decided to crawl
the
four blocks home. When he arrived at the door he stood up and fell flat
on
his face. He crawled through the door and into his bedroom. When he
reached
his bed he tried one more time to stand up. This time he managed to
pull
himself upright, but he quickly fell right into the bed and is sound
asleep
as soon as his head hit the pillow.
He was awakened the next morning to his wife standing over him,
shouting,
"SO YOU'VE BEEN DRINKING AGAIN!" Putting on an innocent look, and
intent on
bluffing it out he said, "What makes you say that?" "The pub just
called;
you left your wheelchair there again."
 

                          "I've Lost Me Luggage"
An Irishman arrived at J.F.K. Airport and wandered around the terminal
with
tears streaming down his cheeks. An airline employee asked him if he
was
already homesick. "No," replied the Irishman. "I've lost all me
luggage!"
"How'd that happen?" "The cork fell out!" said the Irishman.
 
                          
                           "The Reunion"
A man stumbles up to the only other patron in a bar and asks if he
could
buy him a drink. "Why, of course," comes the reply. The first man then
asks, "Where are you from?" "I'm from Ireland," replies the second man.
The
first man responds: "You don't say, I'm from Ireland too! Let's have
another round to Ireland." "Of course," says the second. Curious, the
first
asks: "Where in Ireland?" "Dublin," comes the reply. "I can't believe
it,
Me too! Lets have another round of drinks to Dublin." "Of course" The
second man can't help himself so he asks, "What school did you attend?"
"Saint Mary's", replies the first man. "I graduated in '62." "This is
becoming unbelievable!!!" They say in union. About that time, in comes
one
of the regulars and sits down at the bar. "What's up?" he asks the
bartender. "Nothing much," replied the bartender. "The O'Malley twins
are
drunk again!"

                           

                            "Lost at Sea"
Two Irishmen, Patrick & Michael, were adrift in a lifeboat following a
dramatic escape from a burning freighter. While rummaging through the
boat's provisions, Patrick stumbled across an old lamp. Secretly hoping
that a genie would appear, he rubbed the lamp vigorously. To the
amazement
of Patrick, a genie came forth. This particular genie, however, stated
that
he could only deliver one wish, not the standard three. Without giving
much
thought to the matter, Patrick blurted out, "Make the entire ocean into
Guinness!" The genie clapped his hands with a deafening crash, and
immediately the entire sea turned into the finest brew ever sampled by
mortals. Simultaneously, the genie vanished. Only the gentle lapping of
Guinness on the hull broke the stillness as the two men considered
their
circumstances. Michael looked disgustedly at Patrick whose wish had
been
granted. After a long, tension-filled moment, he spoke: "Nice going
Patrick!
Now we're going to have to pee in the boat."

    The teacher said it was physically impossible for a  whale to swallow a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat was very small.  The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a  whale. Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could   not swallow a human; it was physically  impossible.
The little girl said, "When I get to heaven I will ask  Jonah".  The teacher asked, " What if Jonah went to hell?"  The little girl replied, "Then you ask him".

A Kindergarten teacher was observing her classroom  of children while they were drawing. She would  occasionally walk around to see each child's work.  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."

A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten  Commandments with her five and six year olds.  After explaining the commandment to "honor" thy  Father and thy Mother, she asked,
"Is there a commandment that teaches us how to  treat our brothers and sisters?"
Without missing a beat one little boy (the oldest of a family) answered, "Thou shall not kill."

One day a little girl was sitting and watching her  mother do the dishes at the kitchen sink. She suddenly  noticed that her mother had several strands of white hair sticking out in contrast on her brunette head.  She looked at her mother and inquisitively asked,  "Why are some of your hairs white, Mom?"  Her mother replied, "Well, every time that you do  something wrong and make me cry or unhappy, one of  my hairs turns white."  The little girl thought about this revelation for a while  and then said, "Momma, how come ALL of grandma's  hairs are white?"

The children had all been photographed, and the  teacher was trying to persuade them each to buy a  copy of the group picture.  "Just think how nice it will be to look at it when you   are all grown up and say, 'There's Jennifer, she's a lawyer,' or 'That's   Michael, He's a doctor.' A small voice at the back of the room rang out, "And there's the teacher, She's dead. "

A teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of  the blood. Trying to make the matter clearer,  she  said,  "Now, class, if I stood on my head, the  blood, as you know, would run into it, and I would turn  red in the face.."  "Yes," the class said.  "Then why is it that while I am standing upright in the ordinary position the blood doesn't run into my  feet?" A little fellow shouted,  "Cause your feet ain't empty."

The children were lined up in the cafeteria of a  Catholic elementary school for lunch. At the head of  the table was a large pile of apples. The nun made a note, and posted on the apple tray: "Take only ONE. God is watching." Moving further along the lunch line, at the other end
of the table was a large pile of chocolate chip cookies.  A child had written a note, "Take all you want.  God is watching the apples.


 

Why did the chicken cross the road ?

 GEORGE W. BUSH
We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road.  We just
want 
to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not.  The 
chicken is 
 either with us or it is against us.  There is no middle ground
here.


 COLIN POWELL 
Now at the left of the screen, you clearly see the satellite image
of  the chicken crossing the road. 

HANZ BLIX
We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet
been  allowed access to the other side of the road. 

JACQUES CHIRAC 
We will veto any resolution regarding non-compliance of the 
chicken whether it has or has not crossed the road! 

MOHAMMED ALDOURI (Iraq ambassador) 
The chicken did not cross the road.  This is a complete
fabrication.We don't even have a chicken.

SADDAM HUSSEIN 
This was an unprovoked act of rebellion and we were quite 
justified in  dropping 50 tons of nerve gas on it. 

AL GORE 
I invented the chicken.  I invented the road.  Therefore, the
chicken  crossing the road represented the application of these two
different  functions of government in a new, reinvented way designed to bring 
greater services to the American people.


RALPH NADER 
The chicken's habitat on the original side of the road had been
polluted  by unchecked industrialist greed.  The chicken did not reach the 
unspoiled habitat on the other side of the road because it was
crushed  by the wheels of a gas-guzzling SUV. 
 
PAT BUCHANAN 
To steal a job from a decent, hard-working American.
