The second goes out and buys new golf clubs, CD player, television, and a stereo and gives them to the man. She says, "I bought these gifts for you because I love you so much."
The third takes the $5000 and invests in the stock market, doubles her investment, returns the $5000 and reinvests the rest. She says, "I am investing the rest of the money for our future because I love you so much."
The man thinks long and hard about how each of the women spent the money, and decides to marry the one with the biggest breasts.
In his book," Sled Driver," SR- 71/ Blackbird pilot Brian Shul writes:
I'll always remember a certain radio exchange that occurred one day as Walt (my backseater) and I were screaming across Southern California 13 miles high. We were monitoring various radio transmissions from other aircraft as we entered Los Angeles airspace. Though they didn't really control us, they did monitor our movement across their scope. I heard a Cessna ask for a readout of its groundspeed. "90 knots" Center replied. Moments later, a Twin Beech required the same. "120 knots," Center answered. We weren't the only ones proud of our groundspeed that day as almost instantly an F-18 smugly transmitted, "Ah, Center, Dusty 52 requests groundspeed readout." There was a slight pause, then the response, "525 knots on the ground, Dusty." Another silent pause. As I was thinking to myself how ripe a situation this was, I heard a familiar click of a radio transmission coming from my backseater. It was at that precise moment I realized Walt and I had become a real crew, for we were both thinking in unison. "Center, Aspen 20, you got a groundspeed readout for us?" There was a longer than normal pause.... "Aspen, I show 1,742 knots." No further inquiries were heard on that frequency.
In another famous SR-71 story, Los Angeles Center reported receiving a request for clearance to FL 60 (60,000ft).
The incredulous controller, with some disdain in his voice, asked, "How do you plan to get up to 60,000 feet?
The pilot (obviously a sled driver), responded, " We don't plan to go up to it, we plan to come down to it..."
He was cleared...
There's a story about the military pilot calling for a priority landing, because his single-engine jet fighter was running "a bit peaked."
Air Traffic Control told the fighter jock that he was number two, behind a B-52 that had one engine shut down.
"Ah", the fighter pilot remarked, " one of those dreaded seven-engine approaches!"
A student became lost during a solo cross-country flight.
While attempting to locate the aircraft on radar, ATC asked, "What was your last known position?"
Student: "When I was number one for takeoff".
Taxiing down the tarmac, the DC10 abruptly stopped, turned around and returned to the gate. After an hour-long wait, it finally took off. A concerned passenger asked the flight attendant, "What, exactly, was the problem?" "The pilot was bothered by a noise he heard in the engine...." explained the flight attendant. "It took us a while to find a new pilot."
"TWA 2341, for noise abatement, turn right 45 Degrees."
"Center, we are at 35,000 feet. How much noise can we make up here?"
"Sir, have you ever heard the noise a 747 makes when it hits a 727?"
A three-year-old boy went with his dad to see a new litter of kittens. On
returning home, he breathlessly informed his mother,"There were two boy
kittens and two girl kittens."
"How did you know that?" his mother asked.
"Daddy picked them up and looked underneath," he replied. "I think it's
printed on the bottom.

A lawyer and an engineer were fishing in the Caribbean. The lawyer said
"I'm here because my house burned down and everything I owned was destroyed
by the fire. The insurance company paid for everything."
"That's quite a coincidence", said the engineer, "I'm here because my house
and all my belongings were destroyed by a flood, and my insurance company
also paid for everything."
The lawyer looked somewhat confused. "How do you start a flood?", he asked.
An artist, a lawyer, and a computer technician are discussing the merits of
a mistress. The artist tells of the excitement, the passion, and the thrill
which comes with the risk of being discovered.
The lawyer warns of the difficulties. It can lead to guilt, divorce,

The computer technician says, "It's the best thing that's ever happened to
me. My wife thinks I'm with my mistress. My mistress thinks I'm home with
my wife, and I can spend all night on the computer!"

A young boy, about eight years old, was at the corner "Mom & Pop" grocery
picking out a pretty good size box of laundry detergent. The grocer walked
over, and, trying to be friendly, asked the boy if he hada lot of laundry
"Oh, no laundry," the boy said, "I'm going to wash my dog."
"But you shouldn't use this to wash your dog. It's very powerful and if you
wash your dog in this, he'll get sick. In fact, it might even kill him."
But the boy was not to be stopped and carried the detergent to the counter
and paid for it, even as the grocer still tried to talk him out of washing
About a week later the boy was back in the store to buy some candy. The
grocer asked the boy how his dog was doing.
"Oh, he died," the boy said.
The grocer, trying not to be an I-told-you-so, said he was sorry the dog
died but added, "I tried to tell you not to use that detergent on your dog."
"Well, the boy replied, "I don't think it was the detergent that killed him."
"Oh? What was it then?"
"I think it was the rinse cycle!"
An escaped convict broke into a house and tied up a young couple who had
been sleeping in the bedroom. As soon as he had a chance, the husband
turned to his voluptuous young wife, bound up on the bed in a skimpy
nightgown, and whispered,
"Honey, this guy hasn't seen a woman in years. Just cooperate with anything
he wants. If he wants to have sex with you, just go along with it and
pretend you like it. Our lives depend on it."
"Dear," the wife hissed, spitting out her gag, "I'm so relieved you feel
that way, because he just told me he thinks you have a really nice,
Judi and Jon got married and she was at the drug store looking at the men's
toiletries. A clerk comes up to help her and asks if she needs assistance.
"I'm looking for some deodorant for my new husband, Jon, but I don't know
what type he uses."
The clerk says, "Is it the ball type?"
"No," says Judi, it's for his underarms."
A farmer named Muldoon lived alone in the Irish countryside with a pet dog
he doted on. The dog finally died and Muldoon went to the parish priest
and asked,"Father, the dog is dead. Could you be saying a mass for the
Father Patrick replied, "No, we cannot have services for an animal in the
church, but there's a new denomination down the road, no telling what they
believe, but maybe they'll do something for the animal."
Muldoon said "I'll go right now. Do you think $50,000 is enough to donate
for the service?"
Father Patrick asked, "Why didn't you tell me the dog was Catholic?"
Three boys were heading home from school one day when one started the
time-honored game of paternal one-upmanship. He said, "My dad's way faster
than any of yours, he can throw a 90-mph fastball from the pitcher's mound
and run and catch it just after it crosses the plate!"
One of the other boys said, "Oh yeah? Well my dad can shoot an arrow from
his bow and run to the target and hold it up to make sure the arrow hits
The last boy said, "Your dads don't even come close to being faster than
mine. My dad's a civil servant, and even though he works every day until
4:00 he gets home at 3:30!"
The Pope dies and, naturally, goes to heaven. He's met by the reception
committee, and after a whirlwind tour he is told that he can enjoy any of
the myriad of recreations available. He decides that he wants to read all
of the ancient original text of the Holy Scriptures, so he spends the next
eon or so learning the languages.
After becoming a linguistic master, he sits down in the library and begins
to pour over every version of the Bible, working back from the most recent
"Easy Reading" to the original script. All of a sudden there is a scream in
The Angels come running in only to find the Pope huddled in his chair,
crying to himself, and muttering, "An 'R'! The scribes left out the 'R'."
A particularly concerned Angel takes him aside, offering comfort, and asks
him what the problem is and what does he mean.
After collecting his wits, the Pope sobs again, "It's the letter 'R'. They
left out the 'R'. The word was supposed to be CELEBRATE!"
"Hey, man, you look terrible," Brad remarked to his friend Pete. "What's up?"
"Two months ago, my aunt Betty died -- and left me $20,000," Pete replied.
"Sorry to hear about that. Is that why you're bummed out?"
Pete shook his head. "Last month, my grandfather died -- and left me
"Two deaths in two months," Brad said. "That's tough."
"But this month," Pete sighed, "nothing."
An Airman sits down at a bar and leans over to the guy next to him. He says
"Wanna hear a MARINE joke?".
The guy replies in a gravely voice, "Before you tell that joke, you should
know something. I'm 6' tall, weigh 200 pounds, and I'm a MARINE. The guy
sitting next to me is 6' 2" tall, weighs 220 pounds, and is a MARINE. The
guy sitting next to him is 6' 4" tall, weighs 250 pounds, and is a MARINE.
Now, do you still want to tell that joke?"
The Airman thinks about it for a minute then says "Naw, I don't want to
have to explain it three times."
An Englishman, a Scotsman and an Irishman are all to give speeches to the
Deaf Society. All are keen to make an impression on their audience.
The Englishman goes first and to the surprise of his colleagues starts by
rubbing first his chest and then his groin. When he finishes the Scotsman
and Irishman ask him what he was doing.
"Well" he explained" By rubbing my chest I indicated breasts and thus
Ladies and by rubbing my groin I indicated balls and thus Gentlemen. So my
speech started Ladies and Gentlemen".
On his way up to the podium the Scotsman thought to himself I'll go one
better than that English bastard and started his speech by making an antler
symbol with his fingers above his head before also rubbing his chest and
his groin. When he finished his colleagues asked what he was doing.
"Well" he explained" By imitating antlers and then rubbing my chest and
groin I was starting my speech by saying Dear Ladies and Gentlemen".
On his way up to the podium the Irishman thought to himself I'll go one
further than those mainland bastards and started his speech by making an
antler symbol above his head, rubbing his chest, and then his groin, and
furiously. When he finished his colleagues asked him what he was doing.
"Well" he explained," by imitating antlers, rubbing my chest and then my
groin and then masturbating I was starting my speech by saying Dear Ladies
and Gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure......."
A seaman meets a pirate in a bar, and talk turns to their adventures on the
sea. The seaman notes that the pirate has a peg-leg, a hook, and an eye
patch. The seaman asks "So, how did you end up with the peg-leg?"
The pirate replies "We were in a storm at sea, and I was swept overboard
into a school of sharks. Just as my men were pulling me out, a shark bit
my leg off"
"Wow!" said the seaman. "What about your hook"? "Well...", replied the
pirate, "We were boarding an enemy ship and were battling the other sailors
with swords. One of the enemy cut my hand off."
"Incredible!" remarked the seaman. "How did you get the eyepatch"? "A
seagull dropping fell into my eye.", replied the pirate. "You lost your eye
to a seagull dropping?" the sailor asked incredulously.
"Well...", said the pirate, "...it was my first day with the hook."
This is a true story from a coutroom in America.
A lawyer defending a man accused of burglary tried this creative defense: "My
client merely inserted his arm into the window and removed a few trifling
articles. His arm is not himself, and I fail to see how you can punish the
whole individual for an offense committed by his limb." "Well put," the judge
replied. "Using your logic, I sentence the defendant's arm to one year's
imprisonment. He can accompany it or not, as he chooses."
The defendant smiled. With his lawyer's assistance he detached his artificial
limb, laid it on the bench, and walked out.
The National Poetry Contest had come down to the last two, a Yale graduate and a redneck from Texas. They were given a word, then they were allowed two minutes to study the word and come up with a poem that contained the word. The word that they were given was "Timbuktu."
First to recite his poem was the Yale graduate. He stepped to the microphone and said:
Slowly across the desert sand
trekked a lonely caravan;
Men on camels, two by two
The crowd went crazy! No way could the redneck top that, they thought. The redneck calmly made his way to the microphone and recited:
Me and Tim a huntin' went.
Met three whores in a pop up tent.
They was three, and we was two,
so I bucked one, and Timbuktu.
The redneck won hands down!
I have lots more jokes too, this is about 1/10 of what i have sitting in a folder on my computer :P Maybe I'll just post a few each day
