I had given up of golf, but decided to play a round the other day.

I was four under.

One under a tree, one under a rock, one under a bush and one underwater.

Cat Quotes

"You can't help that. We're all mad here." - The Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland
.
"No matter how much cats fight, there always seems to be plenty of kittens." - Abraham Lincoln
.
"Of all God's creatures, there is only one that cannot be made slave of the lash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve the man, but it would deteriorate the cat." - Mark Twain
.
"With their qualities of cleanliness, discretion, affection, patience, dignity, and courage, how many of us, I ask you, would be capable of becoming cats?" - Fernand Mery Her Majesty the Cat

.
Everything I know I learned from my cat: When you're hungry, eat. When you're tired, nap in a sunbeam. When you go to the vet's, whiz on your owner. - Gary Smith
.
Fans think they want to see more than the 10 to 20 seconds of Itchy and Scratchy that we put on the show, but my feeling is less is more. Once you've skinned and flayed a cat, ripped his head off, made him drink acid and tied his tongue to the moon, there really isn't that much to say. - Matt Groening, 1993
.
God is really only another artist. He invented the giraffe, the elephant and the cat. He has no real style, He just goes on trying other things. - Pablo Picasso

I'm aloof, I like to run around outside, but I also like to curl up in warm spots. I eat fish. - Megan Coughlin on why she'd make a good cat

The naming of cats is a difficult matter. It isn't just one of your holiday games. You may think at first I'm mad as a hatter. When I tell you a cat must have three different names... - T.S. Eliot
.
The sun rose slowly, like a fiery furball coughed up uneasily onto a sky-blue carpet by a giant unseen cat. - Michael McGarel
.
We need a word for all the kitty-prints that are all over my windshield because the cats like to lie on my hood when the car is still warm. - Megan Coughlin
.
When I play with my cat, how do I know that she is not passing time with me rather than I with her? - Montaigne

You can visualize a hundred cats. Beyond that, you can't. Two hundred, five hundred, it all looks the same. - Jack Wright (of Kingston, Ontario, the Guinness Book record holder for the owner of the most cats at one time [689])
.
You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat. - Albert Einstein, when asked to describe radio
.
"After scolding one's cat one looks into its face and is seized by the ugly suspicion that it understood every word. And has filed it for reference."- Charlotte Gray

There were five houses of religion in a small town: The Presbyterian Church, The Baptist Church, The Methodist Church, The Catholic Church, and The Jewish Synagogue. Each was overrun with pesky squirrels.

The Presbyterian Church called a meeting to decide what to do about the squirrels. They determined that the squirrels were predestined to be there and they shouldn't interfere with God's will.

The Baptist Church squirrels had taken up habitation in the baptistery. The deacons decided to put a cover on the baptistery and drown the squirrels in it. The squirrels escaped somehow, and there were twice as many the next week.

The Methodist Church decided that they were not in a position to harm any of God's creation. So, they humanely trapped the squirrels and set them free a few miles outside of town. Three days later, the squirrels were back.

The Catholic Church came up with the best solution. They baptized the squirrels and registered them as members. Now they only see them on Christmas, Ash Wednesday, Palm Sunday and Easter.

Not much was heard about the Jewish Synagogue, but they took one squirrel and had a short service with him called circumcision and they haven't seen a squirrel on the property since.

A distinguished young woman on a flight from Switzerland asked the Priest beside her, "Father, may I ask a favor?" "Of course. What may I do for you?"
"Well, I bought an expensive woman's electronic hair dryer for my mother's birthday. The dryer is unopened and well over the Customs limits; and I'm afraid they'll confiscate it. Is there any way you could carry it through Customs for me? Under your robes perhaps?"
"I would love to help you, dear, but I must warn you: I will not lie."
"With your honest face, Father, no one will question you."
When they reached the Customs area, she let the priest go ahead of her.
The official asked: "Father, do you have anything to declare?"
"From the top of my head down to my waist, I have nothing to declare."
The official thought this answer strange, so asked, "And what do you have to declare from your waist to the floor?"
"I have a marvelous instrument designed to be used on a woman, but which is, to date, unused."
Roaring with laughter, the official said, "Go ahead, Father."

One day a miserable toothbrush sits down and says, "Sometimes I feel I have the worst job in the world."

An old man limped into his doctor's office.
He said, "Doc, my knee hurts so bad I can hardly walk."
Doc asked, "how old are you?"
Old man said, "90."
Doc sighed and said, "you are 90 and complaining about knee pain. What do you expect?"
Old man said, "My other knee is 90, too. It doesn't hurt."

An American minister goes to the Biblical Zoo in Jerusalem and is astounded to see in one enclosure a lion and a lamb. Unable to contain himself, he rushes to the director’s office. “I must tell you how wonderful this is,” he exclaims. “Here we are in this violent, hate-filled land, yet I see, as the Biblical prophecy of Isaiah has it, a lion and a lamb lying down together. How do you do it?”

The director shrugs. “Easy. Every morning we toss in another lamb.”

Mens Rules vs Womens Rules
.
.
Men’s Rules For Women
.
.
Christopher Columbus didn’t need directions, and neither do we.
If you think you’re fat, you probably are. Don’t ask us.
Learn to work the toilet seat: if it’s up, put it down.
Don’t cut your hair. Ever.
If you ask a question you don’t want an answer to, expect an answer you don’t want to hear.
Sometimes, we’re not thinking about you. Live with it.
Don’t ask us what we’re thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as navel lint, the shotgun, formation or motorcycles.
Shopping is something we will never enjoy.
Anything you wear is fine. Really.
Crying is blackmail. Use it if you must, but don’t expect us to like it.
Your brother is an idiot, your ex-boyfriend is an idiot and your Dad probably is too.
Ask for what you want. Subtle hints don’t work.
Yes, pissing standing up is more difficult than peeing from point blank range. We’re bound to miss sometimes.
Most guys own two to three pairs of shoes. What makes you think we’d be any good at choosing which pair, out of thirty, would look good with your dress?
Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers.
A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a doctor.
Your Mom doesn’t have to be our best friend.
Don’t give us 50 rules when 25 will do.
Don’t fake it. We’d rather be ineffective than deceived.
Anything we said 6 or 8 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. All comments become null and void after 7 days.
If you don’t dress like the Victoria’s Secret girls, don’t expect us to act like soap opera guys.
If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of the ways makes you sad and angry, we meant the other one.
Let us ogle. If we don’t look at other women, how can we know how pretty you are?
Don’t rub the lamp if you don’t want the genie to come out.
You can either ask us to do something OR tell us how you want it done – not both.
.
.
Women’s Rules For Men
.
.
Call.
Don’t lie.
Never tape any of her body parts together.
If guys’ night out is going to be fun, invite the girls.
If guys’ night out is going to involve strippers, remember the zoo rules: No Petting.
Don’t expect her to clean up after YOUR buddies have been over.
The correct answer to "Do I look fat?" is never, ever "Yes."
Ditto for "Is she prettier than me?"
Ordering for her is good. Telling her what she wants is bad.
Being attentive is good. Stalking is bad.
Talking is good. Shouting is bad. Slapping is a felony.
Victoria’s Secret is good. Frederick’s of Hollywood is tacky.
Unless she likes that sort of thing.
If you ARE going to get her lingerie, get her the kind of things SHE likes to wear – NOT what YOU’D like to see her in.
And for god’s sake, get her size right. It’s not THAT hard.
A grunt is seldom an acceptable answer to any question.
If you don’t want another mother, don’t act like a child.
None of your ex-girlfriends were ever nicer, prettier, or better in bed.
Don’t buy the $9.99/dozen roses on the way home — They tell her you are not only unimaginative, you’re cheap.
Her cooking is excellent.
That isn’t an excuse for you to avoid cooking.
You are a capable adult. Don’t feign incompetence around the house in some feeble attempt to get her to "do it for you".
Notice when the floor crunches beneath your feet. You too can learn to use a broom (or vaccuum).
Dishsoap is your friend.
Learn to clean in and around a toilet. Especially since YOU are the one who "misses" it.
Hat does not equal shower, aftershave does not equal soap, and warm does not equal clean.
Five O’Clock stubble has all the erotic qualities of sandpaper.
Buying her dinner does not equal foreplay.
You too, can learn to iron your shirts.
Answering "Who was that on the phone?" with "Nobody" is never going to end that conversation.
Ditto for "Whose lipstick is this?"
Two words: clean socks.
Two MORE words: clean underwear.
Believe it or not, you’re probably NOT more attractive when you’re drunk.
Burping is not sexy.
Farting ceases to be funny after the 7th grade.
Making excuses for being an ass is bad. Learning how to admit you were wrong and apologize, is good.
Supportive is good. Patronizing is bad.
She is probably less impressed by your discourse on your cool car than you think she is.
Ditto for your discourse on football.
Ditto for your ability to jump up and hit any awning in a single bound.
She might show more interest in YOUR hobbies if you genuinely show some interest in HERS.
"Will you marry me?" is good. "Let’s shack up together" is bad.
Don’t assume PMS is the cause for every bad mood.
Don’t assume PMS doesn’t exist.
No means No. Yes means Yes. Silence could mean anything she feels like at that particular moment in time, and it could change without notice.
"But, we kiss…" is not justification for using her toothbrush. You don’t clean plaque with your tongue.
Basic courtesy and respect for feminism are NOT mutually exclusive.
Pick her up at the airport. Don’t whine about it, just do it.
If you want to break up with her, break up with her. Don’t act like a complete jerk until she does it for you.
Don’t tell her you love her if you don’t.
Tell her you love her if you do. Often.
Always, always suck up to her brother.
The underwear your mother buys you is NOT sexy.
Think boxers.
Silk boxers.
Unless you have a GQ body. Then think French Cut. Silk French Cut.
Remember Valentine’s Day, and any cheesy "anniversary" she so-names.
Don’t expect HER to remember your mother’s birthday or buy the gift.
Don’t try to change the way she dresses.
Learn to dress yourself. Men’s clothing comes in more colors than blue, black and grey, and more styles than t-shirts and jeans.
Her haircut is never bad.
Don’t let your friends pick on her.
Don’t ask her to fix your friends up with HER friends.
Call.
Don’t lie.
The rules are never fair. Accept this without question. The fact that she has to go through labor while you sit in the waiting room on your ass smoking cigars isn’t fair either, and it balances everything.

The Politician and Hell
.
.
So a politician dies…
.
And ends up standing in front of the pearly gates. Saint Peter looks at him for a second, flicks through his book, and finds his name. "So, you’re a politician…" "Well, yes, is that a problem?" "Oh no, no problem. But we’ve recently adopted a new system for people in your line of work, and unfortunately you will have to spend a day in Hell.
After that however, you’re free to choose where you want to spend eternity!""Wait, I have to spend a day in Hell??" says the politician. "Them’s the rules" Says St Peter, clicks his fingers, and WOOMPH, the guy dissapears…
.
And awakes, curled up with his hands over his eyes, knowing he’s in Hell.
Cautiously, he listens for the screams, sniffs the air for brimstone, and finds… Nothing.
Just the smell of, is that fabric softener? And cut grass, this can’t be right?
.
"Open your eyes!" says a voice. "C’mon, wakey wakey, we’ve only got 24 hours!". Nervously, he uncovers his eyes, looks around, and sees he’s in a hotel room. A nice one too. Wait, this is a penthouse suite… And there’s a smiling man in a suit, holding a martini. "Who are you??" The politician asks. "Well, I’m Satan!" says the man, handing him the drink and helping him to his feet. "Welcome to Hell!" "Wait, this is Hell? But… Where’s all the pain and suffering?" he asks. Satan throws him a wink. "Oh, we’ve been a bit mis-represented over the years, it’s a long story. Anyway, this is your room! The minibar is of course free, as is the room service, there’s extra towels next to the hot-tub, and if you need anything, just call reception. But enough of this! It’s a beautiful day, and if you’d care to look outside…" Slightly stunned by the opulent surroundings, the man wanders over to the floor-to-ceiling windows through which the sun is glowing, looks far down, and sees a group of people cheering and waving at him from a golf course. "It’s one of 5 pro-level courses on site, and there’s another 6 just a few minutes drive out past the beach and harbour!" says Satan, answering his unasked question. So they head down in the lift, walk out through the glittering lobby where everyone waves and welcomes the man, as Satan signs autographs and cherrily talks shop with the laughing staff. And as he walks out, he sees the group on the golf course are made up of every one of his old friends, people he’s admired for years but never met or worked with, and people whose work he’s admired but died long before his career started. And out of the middle of this group walks his wife, with a massive smile and the body she had when she was 20, who throws her arms around him and plants a delicate kiss on his cheek. Everyone cheers and applauds, and as they slap him on the back and trade jokes, his worst enemy arrives, as a 2 foot tall goblin-esque caddy. He spends the day in the bright sunshine on the course, having the time of his life laughing at jokes and carrying important discussions, putting the world to rights with his friends while holding his delighted wife next to him as she gazes lovingly at him. Later, they return to the hotel for dinner and have an enormous meal, perfectly cooked, which descends into a food-fight when someone accidentally throws a bread roll at the next table (where Ghandi is having a game of truth-or-dare with Marylin Monroe). As everyone is falling about laughing and flinging breadsticks at each other, his wife whispers in his ear… And they return to their penthouse suite, and spend the rest of the night making love like they did on their honeymoon. After 6 hours of intense passion, the man falls deep into the 100% Egyptian cotton pillows, and falls into a deep and happy sleep…
.
And is woken up by St Peter. "So, that was Hell. Wasn’t what you were expecting, I bet?" "No sir!" says the man. "So then" says St Peter "you can make your choice. It’s Hell, which you saw, or Heaven, which has choral singing, talking to God, white robes, and so on". "Well… I know this sounds strange, but on balance, I think I’d prefer Hell" says the politician. "Not a problem, we totally understand! Enjoy!" Says St Peter, and clicks his fingers again.
.
The man wakes up in total darkness, the stench of ammonia filling the air and distant screams the only noise. As he adjusts, he can see the only light is from belches of flame far away, illuminating the ragged remains of people being tortured or burning in a sulphurous ocean. A sudden bolt of lightning reveals Satan next to him, wearing the same suit as before and grinning, holding a soldering iron in one hand and a coil of razor-wire in the other. "What’s this??" He cries. "Where’s the hotel?? Where’s my wife??? Where’s the minibar, the golf-courses, the pool, the restaurant, the free drinks and the sunshine???"
.
"Ah", says Satan. "You see, yesterday, we were campaigning. But today, you voted…"

Thoughts Everyone Has While Using Netflix
.
.
01. Ah, finally a quiet night to watch something from my Netflix queue.
02. Let me just pull up what I have saved and…
03. Wow. I have a lot of stuff on here.
04. When did I add Cheers?
05. And when did I watch four episodes of it?
06. I should probably use this time to watch a classic.
07. Chinatown? Eh, don’t know if I want start that right now.
08. Das Boot? Nah, don’t really feel like reading subtitles.
09. I know! A documentary.
10. A documentary on child trafficking? No thanks.
11. How about one where they uncover a grisly murder?
12. Why is every documentary I’ve added so morbid?
13. Maybe I should just add something new.
14. Let’s see what’s in New Releases.
15. Wait, what’s the difference between New Releases and Recently Added?
16. I’m thinking too hard about this.
17. I’ll check New Releases, just to be safe, though.
18. How have I seen every new release already? There has to be something I haven’t seen.
19. Apparently not.
20. I haven’t seen Blackfish yet.
21. But do I really want to see killer whales being tortured at SeaWorld? No.
22. I’ll just check out some other categories.
23. Why do I now have a Steamy Romances category?
24. Oh, yeah. Forgot I watched Cruel Intentions drunk the other night.
25. Maybe I’m going at this all wrong.
26. I should just check out the genres I’m interested in.
27. A comedy sounds good.
28. How are there so many comedies on here and none of them look funny?
29. I guess I could watch Say Anything for the umpteenth time.
30. But I want to watch something new!
31. ::: screams into pillow :::
32. Fuck it, I’ll just watch Top Gun.
33. ::: searches Top Gun :::
34. What the…? It was just here not that long ago?
35. WHAT DID YOU DO WITH MY TOP GUN?
36. No I don’t want to “explore titles related to Top Gun.” I want Top Gun.
37. And what’s up with just having sequels and not the original, Netflix?
38. I’m thinking of The Blue Lagoon fiasco, of course.
39. OK, if a movie isn’t going to happen then a new TV show it is.
40. Let’s see… Breaking Bad?
41. Seen it.
42. House of Cards?
43. Binged it.
44. Sherlock.
45. Watched it. Twice.
46. Oh! Is True Detective on here?
47. No?
48. NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
49. Why can’t Netflix and HBO just be friends?!
50. Fine, back to my queue.
51. I should finish watching The Road, but I know that’s only going to devastate me.
52. I could jump back into where I left off with The West Wing.
53. Or The Following.
54. Or Luther.
55. Why is it so hard to find something I want to watch?
56. Why isn’t the perfect option not just showing up like I want it to?
57. How come whatever I want to watch is never on here?!
58. ALL I WANTED WAS TO WATCH ME SOME NETFLIX.
59. Wait, what’s burning?
60. Shit, forgot about that DiGiorno in the oven.
61. ::: takes burnt pizza out of oven :::
62. Screw it. I’ll just see what’s on TV instead.
63. ::: sadly takes bite of charred pizza :::
64. ::: proceeds to eat the whole thing :::
65. Actually, let me just check Netflix one more time.

Stay Off Your Bicycle
.
.
My wife found out that our dog (a Schnauzer) could hardly hear, so she took it to the veterinarian.
The vet found that the problem was hair in the dog's ears.
He cleaned both ears, and the dog could then hear fine.
The vet then proceeded to tell Andrea that, if she wanted to keep this from recurring, she should go to the store and get some "Nair" hair remover and rub it in the dog's ears once a month.
Andrea went to the store and bought some "Nair" hair remover.
At the register, the pharmacist told her, "If you're going to use this under your arms, don't use deodorant for a few days."
Andrea said, "I'm not using it under my arms."
The pharmacist said, "If you're using it on your legs, don't use body lotion for a couple of days."
Andrea replied, "I'm not using it on my legs either.
If you must know, I'm using it on my Schnauzer."
The pharmacist said, "Well, stay off your bicycle for at least a week

How The Internet Got Started - According To The Bible.
.
.
In ancient Israel, it came to pass that a trader by the name of Abraham Com did take unto himself a healthy young wife by the name of Dorothy. And Dot Com was a comely woman, Large of breast, broad of shoulder and long of leg. Indeed, she was often called Amazon Dot Com. And she said unto Abraham, her husband, "Why dost thou travel so far from town to town with thy goods when thou canst trade without ever leaving thy tent?" And Abraham did look at her as though she were several saddle bags short of a camel load, but simply said, "How, dear?" And Dot replied, "I will place drums in all the towns and drums in between to send messages saying
what you have for sale, and they will reply telling you who hath the best price. The sale can be made on the drums and delivery made by Uriah's Pony Stable (UPS)." Abraham thought long and decided he would let Dot have her way with the drums. And the drums rang out and were an immediate success. Abraham sold all the goods he had at the top price, without ever having to move from his tent. To prevent neighboring countries from overhearing what the drums were saying, Dot devised a system that only she and the drummers knew. It was known as Must Send Drum Over Sound (MSDOS), and she also developed a language to transmit ideas and pictures Hebrew To The People (HTTP). And the young men did take to Dot Com's trading as doth the greedy horsefly take to camel dung. They were called Nomadic Ecclesiastical Rich
Dominican Sybarites, or NERDS. And lo, the land was so feverish with joy at the new riches and the deafening sound of drums that no one noticed that the real riches were going to that enterprising drum dealer, Brother William of Gates, who bought off every drum maker in the land. Indeed he did insist on drums to be made that would work only with Brother Gates' drumheads and drumsticks. And Dot did say, "Oh, Abraham, what we have started is being taken over by others." And Abraham looked out over the Bay of Ezekiel, or eBay as it came to be known. He said, "We need a name that reflects what we are." And Dot replied, "Young Ambitious Hebrew
Owner Operators." "YAHOO," said Abraham. And because it was Dot's idea, they named it YAHOO Dot Com. Abraham's cousin, Joshua, being the young Gregarious Energetic Educated Kid (GEEK) that he was, soon started using Dot's drums to locate things around the countryside. It soon became known as God's Own Official Guide to Locating Everything (GOOGLE).
That is how it all began.
And that's the truth.

Smart Old Lady
.
Two businessmen in new shopping mall… were sitting down for a break in their soon-to-be new shop…
As yet, the shop wasn’t ready, with only a few shelves set up.
One said to the other, “I bet any minute now some pensioner is going to walk by, put their face to the window, and ask what we’re selling.
”No sooner were the words out of his mouth when, sure enough, a curious old woman walked to the window, had a peek, and in a soft voice asked,
“What are you selling here?”
One of the men replied sarcastically,”We’re selling ass-holes.”
Without skipping a beat, the old dear said,“Must be doing well… Only two left.”

.
Biology Exam
.
Students in an advanced Biology class was taking their mid-term exam.
The last question was, “Name seven advantages of Mother’s Milk.”
The question was worth 70 points or none at all.
One student, in particular, was hard put to think of seven advantages. However, he wrote:
.
1. It is perfect formula for the child.
2. It provides immunity against several diseases.
3. It is always the right temperature.
4. It is inexpensive.
5. It bonds the child to mother, and vice versa.
6. It is always available as needed.
.
And then the student was stuck.
Finally, in desperation, just before the bell rang for the end of class he wrote:
.
7. It comes in two attractive containers and it’s high enough off the ground where the cat can’t get it.
.
He got an A
.

The List
.
A man is having problems with his penis, which certainly had seen better times.
He consults a doctor who, after a couple of tests, says, ‘Sorry but you’ve overdone it the last 30 years.
Your penis is burned out.
You only have 30 erections left in your penis’.
The man walks home, deeply depressed.
His wife is waiting for him at the front door and ” he tells her what the doc told him.
She says, ‘Oh no! Only 30 times!
We shouldn’t waste that!
We should make a list!’
He replies, ‘I already made a list on the way home, and I’m afraid your name isn’t on it

The Stranger
.
.
A few years after I was born, my Dad met a stranger who was new to our small town.
From the beginning, Dad was fascinated with this enchanting newcomer and soon invited him to live with our family.
The stranger was quickly accepted and was around from then on.
As I grew up, I never questioned his place in my family.
In my young mind, he had a special niche.
My parents were complementary instructors: Mom taught me good from evil, and Dad taught me to obey.
But the stranger... he was our storyteller.
.
He would keep us spellbound for hours on end with adventures, mysteries and comedies.
If I wanted to know anything about politics, history or science, he always knew the answers about the past, understood the present and even seemed able to predict
the future!
He took my family to the first major league ball game.
He made me laugh, and he made me cry.
The stranger never stopped talking, but Dad didn't seem to mind.
Sometimes, Mom would get up quietly while the rest of us were shushing each other to listen to what he had to say, and she would go to the kitchen for peace and quiet.(I wonder now if she ever prayed for the stranger to leave.)
Dad ruled our household with certain moral convictions,but the stranger never felt obligated to honor them.
Profanity, for example, was not allowed in our home - not from us, our friends or any visitors.
Our long time visitor, however, got away with four-letter words that burned my ears and made my dad squirm and my mother blush.
My Dad didn't permit the liberal use of alcohol but the stranger encouraged us to try it on a regular basis.
He made cigarettes look cool, cigars manly, and pipes distinguished.
He talked freely (much too freely!) about sex.
His comments were sometimes blatant, sometimes suggestive, and generally embarrassing..
I now know that my early concepts about relationships were influenced strongly by the stranger.
Time after time, he opposed the values of my parents, yet he was seldom rebuked ... And NEVER asked to leave.
More than fifty years have passed since the stranger moved in with our family.
He has blended right in and is not nearly as fascinating as he was at first.
Still, if you could walk into my parents' den today, you would still find him sitting over in his corner, waiting for someone to listen to him talk and watch him draw his pictures.
.
.
His name?....
We just call him 'TV.'
.
(Note: This should be required reading for every household!)
.
He has a wife now....we call her 'Computer.'
.
Their first child is "Cell Phone".
.
Second child "I Pod "
.
And JUST BORN THIS YEAR WAS a Grandchild:
.
IPAD

The owner of a health spa was looking over an invoice and was confused about some of the numbers, so he called his secretary in for some mathematical help. "If I were to give you $20,000, minus 14%, how much would you take off?" he asked.
His secretary replied, "Everything but my earrings!"

Bath Night In Scotland
.
.
A Scottish couple took in an 18-year-old girl as a lodger. She asked if she could have a bath, but the woman of the house told her they didn't have a bath, although if she wanted to, she could use a tin bath in front of the fire. "Monday's the best night, when my husband goes out to darts," she said. The girl agreed to have a bath the following Monday. After her husband had gone to the pub for his darts match, the woman filled the bath and watched the girl get undressed.
She was surprised to see that the lass didn't have any pubic hair.
She mentioned this to her husband when he came home.
He didn't believe her, so she said: "Next Monday, when you go to darts, leave a little early and wait in the back garden.
I'll leave a gap in the curtains so you can see for yourself."
So the following Monday, while the girl again got undressed, the wife asked:
"Do you shave?"
"No," replied the girl. "I've just never grown any hair down there.
Do you have hair?"
"Oh, yes," said the woman, and she pulled up her nightdress and showed the girl that she was really generously endowed in the hair department.....very generously indeed.
The girl finished her bath and went to bed.
Later that night, when the husband came in, the wife asked him, "Did you see it?"
"Yes," he said, "but why the hell did you have to show her yours."
"Why ever are you worried about that?" she said. "You've seen it often enough before."
"I know," he said, "but the dart team hadn't!"

At the end of the tax year, the IRS office sent an inspector to audit the books of a local hospital.

While the IRS agent was checking the books he turned to the CFO of the hospital and said, "I notice you buy a lot of bandages. What do you do with the end of the roll when there's too little left to be of any use?"

"Good question," noted the CFO. "We save them up and send them back to the bandage company and every now and then they send us a free box of bandages."

"Oh," replied the auditor, somewhat disappointed that his unusual question had a practical answer. But on he went, in his obnoxious way.

"What about all these plaster purchases? What do you do with what's left over after setting a cast on a patient?"

"Ah, yes," replied the CFO, realizing that the inspector was trying to trap him with an unanswerable question. "We save it and send it back to the manufacturer, and every now and then they send us a free package of plaster."

"I see," replied the auditor, thinking hard about how he could fluster the know-it-all CFO. "Well," he went on, "What do you do with all the leftover foreskins from the circumcisions you perform?"

"Here, too, we do not waste," answered the CFO. "What we do is save all the little foreskins and send them to the IRS Office, and about once a year they send us a complete dick."

44. Oh, would you look at that. He has a new girlfriend, with two children!
45. I should stop judging people. I’m better than that.
46. I should stop judging people. I’m better than that.

After living in the remote countryside of Newfoundland all his life, an old
man decided it was time to visit St. Johns .
In one of the stores, he picks up a mirror and looks into it.
Not ever having seen a mirror before, he remarked at the image
staring back at him.
'How 'bout that! he exclaims, 'Here's a picture of me Fadder.'
He bought the mirror thinking it was a picture of his dad, but on the
way home he remembered his wife didn't like his father, so he hung it in
the shed, and every morning before leaving to go fishing, he would go
there and look at it.
His wife began to get suspicious of his many trips to the shed.
, one day after her husband left, she went to the shed and found the
mirror.
As she looked into the glass, she fumed, 'So that's the ugly bitch
he's running around with.'

A golfer was involved in a terrible car crash and was rushed to the hospital.

Just before he was put under, the surgeon popped in to see him.
"I have some good news and some bad news," says the surgeon.
"The bad news is that I have to remove your right arm!"

"Oh God no!" cries the man "My golfing is over! Please Doc, what's the good news?"

"The good news is, I have another one to replace it with, but it's a woman's arm.
I'll need your permission before I go ahead with the transplant."

"Go for it doc" says the man. "As long as I can play golf again.."

The operation went well and a year later the man was out on the golf course when

he bumped into the surgeon. "Hi, how's the new arm?" asks the surgeon.

"Just great," says the businessman. "I'm playing the best golf of my life.
My new arm has a much finer touch and my putting has really improved."
"That's great," said the surgeon.

"Not only that," continued the golfer, "my handwriting has improved, I've
learned how to sew my own clothes and I've even taken up painting landscapes in watercolours."
"Unbelievable!" said the surgeon, "I'm so glad to hear the transplant was
such a great success. Are you having any side effects?"

"Well, just one problem," said the golfer.

"Every time I get an erection, I also get a headache.

The Human Body Has Super Powers
.
.
01. The human heart, ripped from a chest cavity ala Indiana Jones can indeed continue to beat for a short period of time because it has it’s own electrical system and would continue to receive oxygen from the exposed air.
.
02. Stomach acid is so strong that your body grows an entirely new stomach lining every 3-4 days.
.
03. The human nose can recognize and remember 50,000 unique scents, which is still no where near as powerful as a dog’s.
.
04. You sneeze at the speed of 100 miles per hour or more.
.
05. You have 60,000 miles of blood vessels inside of you, which is enough to wrap around the Earth’s equator roughly two and half times.
.
06. Everyday your heart creates enough energy to drive a truck for 20 miles. In a lifetime, your heart creates enough energy to drive that truck to the moon and back.
.
07. On average a human sheds so much skin in a lifetime that by the time you turn 70, you’ll have removed an entire small human, 105 lbs, from yourself.
.
08. If you look into a clear night sky and can see Andromeda, it means your eyes are so sensitive and powerful that they’re picking up a small fuzzy blob of light that, as our closest neighboring galaxy, is 2.5 million light years away.
.
09. It’s possible to snore at 80 decibels which is equivalent to sleeping next to a pneumatic drill breaking up concrete. Noise levels over 85 decibels are considered hazardous to the human ear.
.
10. A person produces enough spit in a lifetime to fill two swimming pools, roughly 25,000 quarts.
.
11. You are made up of 7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 (that’s 7 octillion) atoms.
.
12. And every single one of those 7 octillion atoms is billions of years old.
.
13. Neurons fire at the speed of 150 miles per hour.
.
14. In addition to the five senses, you actually have an extra meta-sense called proprioception which combines your brain’s knowledge of what your muscles are doing with a feel for the size and shape of your body so you can know where the parts of your body are with respect to each other. It’s how you can close your eyes still touch your nose unerringly.
.
15. Your heartbeat changes and mimics the music you listen too.
.
16. Your brain, when awake, generates enough electricity to light a lightbulb.
.
17. Ounce for ounce, your bones are stronger than steel, since a bar of steel of comparable size would weigh four or five times as much. A cubic inch of bone can in principle bear a load of 19,000 lbs, roughly five standard pickup trucks.
.
18. And yet despite they fact that they’re stronger than steel, 31% of your bones are made of water.
.
19. If the human eye was a digital camera, it would have 576 megapixels. In comparison, the Mamiya DSLR was the highest megapixel count camera I could find at 80 megapixels, retailing at a whopping $34,000.
.
20. In addition, experts estimate that the human eye can distinguish 10 million different colors.
.
21. If uncoiled, the DNA in all the cells in your body would stretch 10 billion miles—from here to Pluto and back.
.
22. In a lifetime, your brain’s long-term memory can hold as many as 1 quadrillion (1 million billion) separate bits of information.
.
23. The human brain, specifically the prefrontal cortex which helps us with social skills and understanding other people, is still developing well into your 40’s.
.
24. During an average lifetime, the heart will pump nearly 1.5 million barrels of blood—enough to fill 200 train tank cars.
.
25. Your body makes 180 million red blood cells an hour.
.
26. While a normal pregnancy lasts nine months, the longest recorded pregnancy is 375 days, 12.5 months.
.
27. During pregnancy, if the mother suffers organ damage, the baby in the womb sends stem cells to repair the damaged organ.
.
28. It takes 200 muscles to take one step.
.
29. Researchers found 1,458 new species of bacteria in belly buttons.
.
30. Most astronauts become two inches taller in space.
.
31. 6 billion steps of DNA are contained in a single cell.
.
32. For every egg that’s impregnated, there’s 200-500 million sperm vying to pass on it’s DNA.
.
33. By the time you die, you’ll have spent a third of your life sleeping.
.
34. A study found that you can reset your brain’s sleep-wake clock (circadian rhythm) by shining a light on the back of your knee.
.
35. A person can survive for 2 months without food.
.
36. Your tongue isn’t the only place you have taste receptors, you also have them in your stomach, intestines, pancreas, lungs, anus, testicles and brain.
.
37. New physical connections are created between neurons in the brain every time you form a memory.
.
38. It’s scientifically proven that even a small dose of power changes how a person’s brain operates, usually by diminishing empathy.
.
39. You can survive without oxygen for 5-10 mins before your brain cells start to die.
.
40. Your brain is 60% fat.
.
41. The human brain will eat itself as a last ditch attempt to ward of starvation (aka in case of extreme dieting/malnutrition).
.
42. The vagina is self-cleaning.
.
43. Phobias may be memories passed down in genes from ancestors.
.
44. Your auto-programmed response to certain stimuli is called emotion.
.
45. Long-term memories create permanent lasting physical changes in the brain.
.
46. If you adjust your facial expression to reflect an emotion, you’ll actually begin to feel that emotion.
.
47. A human eye can only see a small fraction of your visual field at a time, so the eye performs 2-3 saccades (quick, automatic eye movements) per second to complete a single complete picture.
.
48. When you recollect a memory, it’s not the original memory, it’s creative reimagination that will often feature holes and completely new parts.
.
49. Your mind forgets information to protect itself from information overload and emotional hangovers which helps it to think more quickly and assimilate new information easier.
.
50. The mind can practice new tasks, such as learning a new piece of music during REM sleep. REM sleep also appears to boost performance with tasks involving procedural memory, or the subconscious “how-to” knowledge.
.
51. Society has a “canonical perspective” which means we all view certain things the same way. For example: when researchers asked people around the world to draw a coffee cup, almost everyone drew a coffee cup from a perspective slightly above the cup looking down and offset a little to the right or left, no one drew it looking straight down from above.

Replacing Your Mouse Balls
.
.
I don't know how they wrote this with a straight face.
This was a real memo sent out by IBM to its employees in all seriousness.
It went to all field engineers about a computer peripheral problem.
The author of this memo was quite genuine.
The engineers rolled on the floor!
Especially note the last couple of sentences.
.
"If a mouse fails to operate or should it perform erratically, it may need a ball replacement.
Mouse balls are now available as FRU (Field Replacement Units).
Because of the delicate nature of this procedure, a replacement of mouse balls should only be attempted by properly trained personnel.
Before proceeding, determine the type of mouse balls by examining the underside of the mouse.
Domestic balls will be larger and harder than foreign balls.
Ball removal procedures differ depending upon the manufacturer of the mouse.
Foreign balls can be replaced using the pop off method.
Domestic balls are replaced by using the twist off method.
Mouse balls are not usually static sensitive.
However, excessive handling can result in sudden discharge.
.
Upon completion of ball replacement, the mouse may be used immediately.
It is recommended that each person have a pair of spare balls for maintaining optimum customer satisfaction.
Any customer missing his balls should contact the local personnel in charge of removing and replacing these necessary items.
.
Please keep in mind that a customer without properly working balls is an unhappy customer."

Are You Polish
.
.
Everyone seems to be in such a hurry to scream 'racism' these days.
A customer asked, "In what aisle could I find the Polish sausage?"
The clerk asks, "Are you Polish?”
The guy, clearly offended, says, "Yes I am.
But let me ask you something.
If I had asked for Italian sausage, would you ask me if I was Italian?
Or if I had asked for German Bratwurst, would you ask me if I was German?"
Or if I asked for a kosher hot dog would you ask me if I was Jewish?
Or if I had asked for a Taco, would you ask if I was Mexican?
Or if I asked for some Irish whiskey, would you ask if I was Irish?"
The clerk says, "No, I probably wouldn't."
The guy says, "Well then, because I asked for Polish sausage, why did you ask me if I'm Polish"
.
The clerk replied, "Because you're in Home Depot.

Everyday Thoughts All Anxious People Have
.
.
01. Going to set TWO alarms for the morning just in case one doesn’t go off.
02. I locked the door. Right? Yes. I locked it. Wait, let me just check to make sure it’s locked.
03. Where are my keys? Did I leave them inside?
04. Holy shit… did I turn the coffee maker off?!
05. Yes, I did, but did I turn the hair straightener off too?!
06. House will burn down. Why didn’t I get the apartment insurance?
07. Mom didn’t pick up the phone. Maybe I should call the local hospitals…
08. What’s the weather gonna be like? I should have checked. Do I even have an umbrella in the car?
09. Did I put on deodorant?
10. There’s a cop. There’s a cop. There’s a cop. Holy shit. Slow down. Did they just turn the lights on?
11. Of course I’m late to work on the ONE DAY my boss gets in early. Now she’s glaring at me. Going to get fired.
12. Forgot to lock the car door.
13. Phew, it was locked. It’s locked, right? Let me check again.
14. Why are they whispering? Are they talking about me?
15. Boss just asked me to come into her office. FML. I was right. I’m getting fired.
16. Someone coughed, somewhere. Where’s my Emergen-C?
17. My throat hurts. There’s definitely a scratch. It’s definitely… wait, I’m just thirsty.
18. My stomach made a weird noise… is this what dying is?
19. My chair squeaked and it kind of sounded like a fart. Going to move the chair again so everyone knows it’s THE CHAIR and NOT ME.
20. Now it just sounds like I farted twice. Damnit.
21. Really need to pee, but am so pee shy right now. Been in this stall for wayyyy too long and people will think I’m pooping. Going to get up and go and come back in half an hour.
22. I brought my lunch, but everyone is going out to lunch. Should I eat my lunch? But then everyone will be going out without me…
23. Is that a gray hair?
24. Not a gray hair, but now I see a freckle that looks funny. Is it cancer?
25. When did I get this ketchup stain on my shirt? Wait, how long has it been there and how many people saw it?!
26. Why is that guy smiling at me? Do I have something weird in my teeth?
27. Why didn’t I bring gum? I’m such an idiot for not bringing gum.
28. Gah, no one laughed at that stupid joke I just made. WHY ME?
29. Do I want to go out tonight? I don’t know, do I?
30. Texted them 10 minutes ago, and nothing back yet. They hate me.
31. I’ll text them again. No, wait, then they’ll think I’m overly eager. Or maybe they didn’t like my emoticon? It was too soon to send the BIG smiley one.
32. They texted back, “OK.” (?!?!!?)
33. Can’t concentrate on anything until this person emails me back. EMAIL ME.
34. Haven’t heard back. Should I have started the email with “Dear” instead of “Hey”?
35. OK, thank the gods, they emailed. It feels like everything will be OK now.
36. Why hasn’t anyone faved the tweet I just posted? Should I delete it? Is it too late?
37. I need to find a job where I can work from home so I don’t have to deal with people.
38. Unknown number. Definitely not picking that up. Wait, maybe someone died.
39. Want to leave early, but everyone is still here and will judge me if I leave.
40. What if an earthquake happens while I’m stuck in this traffic?
41. Ahhh, hate coming home when it’s dark out. What if someone tries to mug me?
42. I’ll hold my keys in my hand so that if someone DOES try, I can key their face. Where are my fucking keys?!
43. Can my neighbors hear me watching TV? Are they judging my love of Real Housewives?
44. What was that noise? Is someone trying to break in?
45. It’s so dark when you turn all the lights off though, how will I know if someone’s even in here?
46. …like, what if ghosts are real, though? Is there one in my room right now? OK, now I’m freaking out.
47. Going to have to take a sleeping pill to fall asleep tonight. Better set THREE alarms this time.

Lawsuit
.
.
One evening, after attending the theatre, two gentlemen were walking down the avenue when they observed a rather well dressed and attractive young lady walking ahead of them. One of them turned to the other and remarked "I'd give $250 to spend the night with that woman".
Much to their surprise, the young lady overheard the remark, turned around, and replied "I'll take you up on that offer". She had a neat appearance and a pleasant voice, so after bidding his companion good night, the man accompanied the young lady to her apartment.
The following morning the man presented her with $125 as he prepared to leave. She demanded the rest of the money, stating "If you don't give me the other $125, I'll sue you for it". He laughed, saying "I'd like to see you get it on these grounds".
Within a few days, he was surprised when he received a summons ordering his presence in court as a defendant in a lawsuit. He hurried to his lawyer and explained the details of the case. His lawyer said "She can't possibly get a judgment against you on such grounds, but it will be interesting to see how her case will be presented".
After the usual preliminaries, the lady's lawyer addressed the court as follows: "Your Honour, my client, this lady, is the owner of a piece of property, a garden spot, surrounded by a profuse growth of shrubbery, which property she agreed to rent to the defendant for a specified length of time for the sum of $250. The defendant took possession of the property, used it extensively for the purposes for which it was rented, but upon evacuating the premises, he paid only $125, one half of the amount agreed upon. The rent was not excessive, since it is restricted property, and we ask judgment be granted against the defendant to assure payment of the balance".
The defendant's lawyer was impressed and amused by the way his opponent had presented the case. His defence, therefore was somewhat different from the way he originally planned to present it. "Your Honour" he said "my client agrees that the lady has a fine piece of property, that he did rent such property for a time, and a degree of pleasure was derived from the transaction. However, my client found a well on the property around which he placed his own stones, sunk a shaft, and erected a pump, all labour performed personally by him. We claim these improvements to the property were sufficient to offset the unpaid amount, and that the plaintiff was adequately compensated for the rental of said property. We, therefore, ask that judgment not be granted".
The young lady's lawyer answered thus: "Your Honour, my client agrees that the defendant did find a well on her property. However, had the defendant not known that the well existed; he would never have rented the property. Also, upon evacuating the premises, the defendant removed the stones, pulled out the shaft, and took the pump with him. In doing so, he not only dragged the equipment through the shrubbery, but left the hole much larger than it was prior to his occupancy, making the property much less desirable to others. We, therefore, ask that judgment be granted".
In the Judge's decision, he provided for two options: "Pay the $125 or have the equipment detached and provided to the plaintiff for damages".

America Has Lots of Dumb Laws
.
.
America has lots of dumb laws.
But most people are pretty familiar with standard fare dumb laws like no butt-sex in vast swaths of the South or no liquor being sold on Sundays in rural America because it might offend Jesus. But there are a whole mess of other, more obscure dumb laws that you should know about. I mean, on the off chance that you end up rolling through Florida with a pig, or with a truck filled with dildos in Texas, you’re going to want to be informed here. And that’s why we bring you this, ten crazy American laws you won’t believe exist.
.
10. No Password Sharing – Tennessee
Yes, Tennessee has made it a crime to share your Netflix password, or any other password to, uh, Internet “entertainment” sites. Just be careful, you don’t want to be that guy who ends up in court, head bowed low, while Mr. Skin sits in the witness seat and explains to the jury how you and your boys wronged him. You can abuse him all you want in Kentucky, but Tennessee has higher standards than that.
.
09. No Posting Images Online That Cause Undue Emotional Distress – Tennessee
Who knew Tennessee was such a bastion of online decency? This law is of course completely nuts because it fails to understand that the Internet is a crazy place filled with crazy people, and there is someone out there who will claim a picture of an apple sent them into an emotional tailspin because it failed to come with a trigger warning. But even if you weed out all the crazies, you’re left with an overburdened court system dealing with bros getting bent out of shape because someone posted a picture of Goatse during a flame war, which is just sad. Then again, the thought of Clarence Darrow and William Jennings Bryan arguing whether or not Goatse represents free speech almost makes this stupid law worth it. (Note: do not Google Image Search Goatse if you don’t know what I’m talking about. For the love of god, don’t do this.)
.
08. No Harassing Bigfoot – Washington
Basically, this law seems like it was crafted by the Washington legislature while they were getting stoned on a lazy Tuesday afternoon. “What if, like, Bigfoot was real? And what if, like, somebody tried to capture him or shoot him or something, dudes?” To hell with health care, this is some important shit. I’m guessing that they were all watching Harry and the Hendersons while they were getting baked and felt the need to take a stand. The funniest part is that this isn’t just a simple misdemeanor with a modest fine. No, this is a felony, meaning that you could end up doing hard time for harassing an imaginary creature. You’d probably get the gas chamber for taunting Cookie Monster.

07. No Simulated Bestiality in a Bar – Oklahoma
Oklahoma has a fairly standard law covering indecency in a bar. Basically, it holds the bar owner liable if his customers get too rowdy and start finger-banging on the dance floor. But for some insane reason, they felt the need to add bestiality to the list, which I’m guessing happened because some state senator saw some drunk college frat bro jokingly try to bang the mechanical bull at a bar while all his friends whooped it up, and decided, “No more!” After all, mechanical bulls are people too.

06. No Keeping Pregnant Pigs in Cages – Florida
This one gets extra points because it’s not just a law, it’s actually in the state Constitution. Florida, amirite? Yes, the Florida state Constitution has an amendment “limiting cruel and inhumane confinement of pigs during pregnancy.” Sure, you’ve got dudes roaming around eating bath salts and gnawing off faces, but goddammit, there are pregnant pigs who don’t have enough room to really luxuriate. You can see why this would be important. Then again, it’s Florida, so some poor idiot in the state legislature probably felt guilty after knocking up one of his pigs and decided to make sure she’d at least get to raise their bastard in comfort. These are Southern gentlemen after all.

05. Idiots Can’t Vote – New Mexico
According to the New Mexico state Constitution, everyone of legal age is entitled to vote accept for the usual riff-raff, like felons. But New Mexico decided to add a little more integrity to their elections by also disenfranchising insane people and idiots. Look, there’s an obvious joke here to be made about the Tea Party, but I’m above such things. I just want to know who decides who’s an idiot. Would Corky from Life Goes On be allowed to vote? George W. Bush? I mean, who makes this decision?
.
04. No Carrying Babies on the Running Boards of Cars – Oregon
This one seems oddly specific, which means that it was probably passed because some asshole actually did this. I’m guessing some poor overstressed couple had to pack up the ol’ Model T to go to Aunt Selma’s for Thanksgiving back in the day, realized they didn’t have room for both the baby and the turkey, and realized that they had a tough choice to make. Naturally, baby Jed ended up ghost-riding the whip while the precious turkey sat safely in the backseat. The law also makes it illegal to carry a baby on the hood or fender of your vehicle, so you probably shouldn’t get high and roll around town with your baby as a hood ornament, no matter how funny it may seem at the time.

03. No Owning Six or More Dildos – Texas
You knew Texas would probably show up here at some point, and naturally, it’s about dildos. I think the rationale here was that anyone owning that many dildos is a dildo salesman or something, which is also illegal in Texas for some idiotic reason. But what’s funny to me is picturing some old Texas rednecks sitting around the legislature arguing about the specific number. I mean, what made five dildos okay while six was apparently just one too many damn dildos? What if they are different types of dildos? Are vibrators considered different from dildos? What if a lady has a refrigerator drawer filled with cucumbers? Is a SWAT team going to kick in the doors after the local grocery clerk sends in an anonymous tip about bananas being sold in bulk to lonely ladies? You’ve opened a Pandora’s Box here, Texas.

02. No More Than Six Girls Can Live in a Residence – Maricopa County, Arizona
This law was passed in an effort to crack down on brothels, but in reality it’s basically declaring that the father of that nice Irish Catholic family that lives down the street is actually a pimp, and that all of those sorority houses are even more scandalous than in your wildest dreams. To be fair, the good people of Maricopa County have turned their attentions to rooting out houses filled with Mexicans in recent years, meaning that the county is probably filled with these houses of sin. I’m just saying, maybe the time has come for Sheriff Joe to show up on the news explaining what all those sorority girls are doing on his chain gangs. After all, the law’s the law, right?

01. No Seducing Unmarried Girls – Michigan
You can get up to five years in prison for seducing an unmarried girl, which means that every dude who lives in Michigan who’s married is technically a felon. That’s what makes it so ridiculous. The wording takes a standard, old fashioned dumb “no premarital sex” law and turns it into an ambiguous law which basically makes it okay for any dude who smiles at a single lady on the street to get beaten down like Rodney King by the cops. This is why I only hit on married ladies. I just respect the law that much.

This had most of the state of Michigan laughing for 2 days and a very embarrassed female news anchor who will, in the future, likely think before she speaks. What happens when you predict snow but don't get any! We had a female news anchor that, the day after it was supposed to have snowed and didn't, turned to the weatherman and asked:
'So Bob, where's that 8 inches you promised me last night?'
Not only did HE have to leave the set, but half the crew did too. they were laughing so hard!

All the organs of the body were having a meeting, trying to decide who was the one in charge...

"I should be in charge," said the brain , "Because I run all the body's systems, so without me nothing would happen."

"I should be in charge," said the blood , "Because I circulate oxygen all over so without me you'd waste away."

"I should be in charge," said the stomach," Because I process food and give all of you energy."

"I should be in charge," said the legs, "because I carry the body wherever it needs to go."

"I should be in charge," said the eyes, "Because I allow the body to see where it goes."

"I should be in charge," said the rectum, "Because Im responsible for waste removal."

All the other body parts laughed at the rectum And insulted him, so in a huff, he shut down tight. Within a few days, the brain had a terrible headache, the stomach was bloated, the legs got wobbly, the eyes got watery, and the blood Was toxic. They all decided that the rectum should be the boss

The Moral of the story? Even though the others do all the work.... The ass hole is usually in charge
