Worthless husband

Joan was driving in Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road. As the trip was a long and quiet one, she  stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride. With a word or two of thanks, she got in the car. After resuming the journey and a bit of small talk, the Navajo woman noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Joan "What's in the bag?" asked the woman. Joan looked down at the brown bag and said, "It's a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband." The Navajo woman was silent for a moment, and then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder said, "Good trade."

What Do You Do?

A guy walks into a bar in Southern Illinois and orders a gin and tonic. The bartender sneers "your not from round here are you boy?" "I'm from Tennessee," replies the guy. The bartender asks "what do you do down there?" The guy replies "I'm a taxidermist" The bartender laughs "what the heck is that boy?" The guy looks at him and says: "I mount dead animals" The bartender relaxes and shouts to the rest of the bar "Its ok boys, he's one of us!"

Real Reason I Am Tired

For a couple years I've been blaming it on lack of sleep, not enough sunshine, too much pressure from my job, earwax build-up, poor blood or anything else I could think of. But now I found out the real reason: I'm tired because I'm overworked. Here's why: The population of this country is 273 million. 140 million are retired. That leaves 133 million to do the work. There are 85 million in school, which leaves 48 million to do the work. Of this there are 29 million employed by the federal government, leaving 19 million to do the work. 2.8 million are in the armed forces preoccupied with finding and killing Osama Bin Laden. Which leaves 16.2 million to do the work. Take from the total the 14,800,000 people who work for state and city governments and that leaves 1.4 million to do the work. At any given time there are 188,000 people in hospitals, leaving 1,212,000 to do the work. Now, there are 1,211,998 people in prisons. That leaves just two people to do the work. You and me. And there you are sitting on your butt, reading jokes in The People News. Nice, real nice. You probably vote for Democrats too!

Union Man
             
A dedicated teacher union member was attending a convention in Las Vegas and, as you would expect, decided to check out the local brothels. When he got to the first one, he asked the Madam, "Is this a union house?" No," she replied, "I'm sorry it isn't." "Well, if I pay you $100, what cut do the girls get?" "The house gets $80 and the girls get $20," she answered. Mightily offended at such unfair dealings, the union man stomped off down the street in search of a more equitable, hopefully unionized shop. His search continued until finally he reached a brothel where the Madam responded, "Why yes sir, this is a union house.  We observe all union rules." The man asked, "And if I pay you $100, what cut do the girls get?" The girls get $80 and the house gets $20." "That's more like it!" the union man said He handed the Madam $100, looked around the room and pointed to a stunningly attractive blonde "I'd like her, he said. I'm sure you would, sir," said the Madam.  Then she gestured to a 92-year old woman in the corner, "but Ethel here has 67 years seniority and she's next."

Marriage (Part I)
Typical macho man married typical good-looking lady and after the wedding, he laid down the following rules:  "I'll be home when I want, if I want and at what time I want-and I don't expect any hassle from you. I expect a great dinner to be on the table unless I tell you that I won't be home for dinner. I'll go hunting, fishing, boozing and card-playing when I want with my old buddies and don't you give me a hard time about it. Those are my rules. Any comments?"  His new bride said, "No, that's fine with me. Just understand that there will be sex here at seven o'clock every night... whether you're here or not."
