Today is Saturday, a day of rest

and I am sure that I ain't going to do nothing but rest.

I have added a few more today and that should keep you going til Sunday.

A certain young fellow named Bee-Bee

Wished to wed a woman named Phoebe.

"But," he said, "I must see

What the clerical fee

Be before Phoebe be Phoebe Bee-Bee

There was a young man so benighted

He never knew when he was slighted;

He would go to a party

And eat just as hearty,

As if he'd been really invited.

A maiden at college, Miss Breeze,

Weighed down by B.A.s and Lit.D's,

Collapsed from the strain,

Said her doctor, "It's plain

You are killing yourself --- by degrees!"

A painter, who lived in Great Britain,

Interrupted two girls with their knittin'

He said, with a sigh,

"That park bench--well I

Just painted it, right where you're sittin.'"

A canner, exceedingly canny,

One morning remarked to his granny,

"A canner can can

Anything that he can;

But a canner can't can a can, can he?"

Here's to the chigger,

The bug that's no bigger

Than the point of an undersized pin;

But the welt that he raises

Sure itches like blazes,

And that's where the rub comes in!

A silly young man from Clyde

In a funeral procession was spied;

When asked, "Who is dead?"

He giggled and said,

"I don't know; I just came for the ride."

There was a young lady of Cork,

Whose Pa made a fortune in pork;

He bought for his daughter

A tutor who taught her

To balance green peas on her fork.

A mouse in her room woke Miss Dowd

She was frightened--it must be allowed.

Soon a happy thought hit her --

To scare off the critter,

She sat up in bed and meowed.

There was a young woman named Kite,

Whose speed was much faster than light,

She set out one day,

In a relative way,

And returned on the previous night.


Morris, an 82 year-old man, went to the doctor to get a physical.

A few days later, the doctor saw Morris walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm.

A couple of days later, the doctor spoke to Morris and said, 'You're really doing great, aren't you?'

Morris replied, 'Just doing what you said, Doc: 'Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.''

The doctor said, 'I didn't say that.. I said, 'You've got a heart murmur; be careful.'


A little old man shuffled slowly into an ice cream parlor and pulled himself slowly, painfully, up onto a stool.. After catching his breath, he ordered a banana split.

The waitress asked kindly, 'Crushed nuts?'

'No,' he replied, 'Arthritis.'


Two elderly gentlemen from a retirement centre were sitting on a bench under a tree when one turns to the other and says: 'Slim, I'm 83 years old now and I'm just full of aches and pains. I know you're about my age. How do you feel?'

Slim says, 'I feel just like a newborn baby.'

'Really!? Like a newborn baby!?'

'Yep. No hair, no teeth, and I think I just wet my pants.


An elderly man on a Moped, looking about 100 years old, pulls up next to a doctor at a street light.

The old man looks over at the sleek shiny car and asks,

'What kind of car ya got there, sonny ?'

The doctor replies, 'A Ferrari GTO.

It cost half a million dollars ! '

'That's a lot of money,' says the old man.

'Why does it cost so much?'

'Because this car can do up to 320 miles an hour!' states the doctor proudly.

The Moped driver asks, 'Mind if I take a look inside?'

'No problem,' replies the doctor.

So the old man pokes his head in the window and looks around.

Then, sitting back on his Moped, the old man says, 'That's a pretty nice car, all right... but I'll stick with my Moped !'

Just then the light changes,

So the doctor decides to show

The old man just what his car can do.

He floors it, and within 30 seconds

The speedometer reads 160 mph.

Suddenly, he notices a dot in his rear view mirror. It seems to be getting closer!

He slows down to see what it could be

And suddenly WHOOOOSSSHHH !

Something whips by him going much faster !

' What on earth could be going faster than my Ferrari ?' the doctor asks himself.

He presses harder on the accelerator

And takes the Ferrari up to 250 mph.

Then, up ahead of him,

He sees that it's the old man on the Moped!

Amazed that the Moped could pass his Ferrari, he gives it more gas

And passes the Moped at 275 mph

And he's feeling pretty good until he looks in his mirror and sees the old man gaining on him AGAIN!

Astounded by the speed of this old guy,

He floors the gas pedal and takes the Ferrari all the way up to 320 mph.

Not ten seconds later, he sees the Moped bearing down on him again!

The Ferrari is flat out,

And there's nothing he can do!

Suddenly, the Moped plows

Into the back of his Ferrari,

Demolishing the rear end.

The doctor stops and jumps out and unbelievably the old man is still alive.

He runs up to the banged-up old guy and says, 'I'm a doctor.... Is there anything I can do for you?'

The old man whispers,

'Unhook my suspenders from your side view mirror!'.


Two Mexicans are stuck in the desert after crossing into the United States , wandering aimlessly and starving. They are about to just lie down and wait for death, when all of a sudden Luis says.........

"Hey Pepe, do you smell what I smell. Ees bacon, I theenk."

"Si, Luis, eet sure smells like bacon. "

With renewed hope they struggle up the next sand dune, & there, in the distance, is a tree loaded with bacon.

There's raw bacon, there's fried bacon, back bacon, double smoked bacon ... every imaginable kind of cured pork.

"Pepe, Pepe, we ees saved. Ees a bacon tree."

"Luis, maybe ees a meerage? We ees in the desert don't forget."

"Pepe, since when deed you ever hear of a meerage that smell like bacon...ees no meerage, ees a bacon tree."

And with that, Luis staggers towards the tree. He gets to within 5 metres, Pepe crawling close behind, when suddenly a machine gun opens up, and Luis drops like a wet sock. Mortally wounded, he warns Pepe with his dying breath,

"Pepe... go back man, you was right, ees not a bacon tree!"

"Luis, Luis mi amigo... what ees it? "

"Pepe.. ees not a bacon tree. Ees




Ees a ham bush...."


One day my mother was out, and my dad was in charge of me.

I was maybe 2 1/2 years old. Someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a gift, and it was one of my favourite toys.

Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought Daddy a little cup of 'tea', which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home.

My Dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!' My Mom waited, and sure enough, here I came down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy; and she watched him drink it up.

Then she said: (as only a mother would know), "'Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water is the toilet?"


An older, tired-looking dog wandered into my yard. I could tell from his collar and well-fed belly that he had a home and was well taken care of.

He calmly came over to me; I gave him a few pats on his head. He then followed me into my house, slowly walked down the hall, curled up in the corner and fell asleep.

An hour later, he went to the door, and I let him out.

The next day he was back, greeted me in my yard, walked inside and resumed his spot in the hall and again slept for about an hour. This continued off and on for several weeks.

Curious I pinned a note to his collar: 'I would like to find out who the owner of this wonderful sweet dog is and ask if you are aware that almost every afternoon your dog comes to my house for a nap.'

The next day he arrived for his nap, with a different note pinned to his collar: 'He lives in a home with 6 children, 2 under the age of 3 - he's trying to catch up on his sleep. Can I come with him tomorrow?'


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 Beer!" 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!



An 80-year-old couple was having problems remembering things, so they decided to go to their doctor to get checked out to make sure that nothing was wrong with them.

When they arrived at the doctor's, they explained to him about the problems they were having with their memories. After checking the couple out, the doctor told them that they were physically okay but might want to start writing things down and make notes to help them remember things.

The couple thanked the doctor and left.

Later that night while watching TV, the old man got up from his chair and his wife asked him, "Where are you going?"

He replied, "To the kitchen."

She asked, "Will you please get me a bowl of ice cream?"

He replied, "Sure."

She then asked him, "Don't you think you should write it down so you can remember it?"

He said, "No, I can remember that."

She then said, "Well I also would like some strawberries on top. You had better write that down because I know you'll forget that."

He said, "I can remember that, you want a bowl of ice cream with strawberries."

She replied, "Well I also would like whip cream on top. I know you will forget that so you better write it down."

With irritation in his voice, he said, "I don't need to write that down I can remember that." He then fumed into the kitchen. After about 20 minutes he returned from the kitchen and handed her a plate of bacon and eggs.

She stared at the plate for a moment and said; "I knew it. You forgot my toast."

There was a dear lady of Eden,

Who on apples was quite fond of feedin';

She gave one to Adam,

Who said, "Thank you, Madam,"

And then both skedaddled from Eden.

Said an envious, crudite ermine,

"There's one thing I cannot determine;

When a dame wears my coat,

She's a person of note;

When I wear it, I'm called a vermine!"

A canny young fisher named Fisher

Once fished from the edge of a fissure.

A fish with a grin

Pulled the fisherman in ---

Now they're fishing the fissure for Fisher.

A newspaper man named Fling

Could make "copy" from any old thing.

But the copy he wrote

Of a five dollar note

Was so good he is now in Sing Sing.

A flea and a fly in a flue,

Were imprisoned, so what could they do?

Said the fly, "Let us flee!"

"Let us fly," said the flea,

And they flew through a flaw in the flue.

A tutor who tooted a flute

Tried to teach two young tooters to toot.

Said the two to the tutor,

"Is it harder to toot, or.."

"To tutor two tutors to toot?"

A major, with wonderful force,

Called out in Hyde Park for a horse.

All the flowers looked round,

But no horse could be found;

So he just rhododendron, of course.

There was an old fellow named Green,

Who grew so abnormally lean,

And flat, and compressed,

That his back touched his chest,

And sideways he couldn't be seen.

There was a young lady named Hannah,

Who slipped on a peel of banana.

As she lay on her side,

More stars she espied

Than there are in the Star-Spangled Banner.

The Sultan got sore on his harem,

And invented a scheme for to scare 'em;

He caught him a mouse

Which he loosed in the house

(The confusion is called harem-scarem.)

Some hints for women.

1. If you think the way to a man's heart is through his stomach you're aiming too high.

2. Women don't make fools of men -- most of them are the do-it-yourself types.

3. The best reason to divorce a man is a health reason: you're sick of him.

4. Never trust a man who says he's the boss at home. He probably lies about other things too.

5. A woman's work that is never done is the stuff she asked her husband to do.

6. If you want a nice man go for a bald one -- they try harder.

7. Go for younger men. You might as well -- they never mature anyway.

8. A man who can dress himself without looking like Forest Gump is unquestionably gay.

9. Men are all the same -- they just have different faces so you can tell them apart.

10. Definition of a man with manners -- he gets out of the bath to pee.

11. Whenever you meet a man who would make a good husband, you will usually find that he does.

12. Scientists have just discovered something that can do the work of five men -- a woman.

13. There are a lot of words you can use to describe men -- strong, caring, loving -- they'd be wrong but you can still use them.

14. Men are like animals -- messy, insensitive and potentially violent, but they make great pets.

15. Men's brains are like the prison system -- not enough cells per man.

16. There are only two four letter words that are offensive to men -"don't" and "stop" (unless they're used together).

17. Husbands are like children -- they're fine if they're someone else's.

18. If a man appears sexy, caring and smart give him a day and he will be back to his usual self.

19. All men are like chickens with their heads cut off when they see beautiful women pass by.

20. If your man appears happy, excited and keeps looking at you all of a sudden he is probably checking out the women behind you.

21. Figuring out men is like trying to make a jigsaw puzzle in a car, once you think you have it all put together, you find another piece but you don't know where it goes.

After that my friends, have a great Saturday

Breath Easy my friends
