David received a parrot for his birthday. The parrot was fully grown, with a bad attitude and worse vocabulary. Every other word was an expletive. Those that weren't expletives were, to say the least, rude. David tried hard to change the bird's attitude. He constantly said polite words, played soft music, anything he could think of to set a good example... Nothing worked. He tried yelling at the bird; the bird yelled back. He shook the bird; it just got angry and even more rude.
Finally, in a moment of desperation, David put the parrot in the freezer. For a few moments he heard the bird squawk and kick and scream --then, suddenly, there was quiet. Not sound for half a minute. David was frightened he might have hurt the bird. He quickly opened the freezer door. The parrot calmly stepped out
onto David's extended arm and said, "I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions. I will endeavor at once to correct my behavior. I really am truly sorry, and beg your forgiveness."
David was astonished at the bird's new attitude! He was about to ask what had caused such a dramatic change, when the parrot continued, "Might I ask what the chicken did?"

The Pope had just finished a tour of the East Coast and was
taking a limousine to the airport. Having never driven a
limo, he asked the chauffeur if he could drive for a while.
Without much of a choice, the chauffeur climbed in the back
of the limo and the Pope took the wheel.
After gleefully accelerating to about 90 mph, the Pope was
pulled over by the State Patrol. The trooper came to his
window, took a look inside, and said, "Just a moment,
please. I need to call in."
The trooper called in and asked for the chief. He told the
chief, "I've got a REALLY important person pulled over and
I need to know what to do."
The chief replied, "Who is it? A senator?"
The trooper said, "No, even more important."
The chief asked, "It's the Governor, isn't it?"
"No. More important."
"The President?"
"No. More important."
"Well, Who the heck is it?!," screams the chief.

"I don't know," said the trooper. "But he's got the Pope as
a chauffeur."

Perhaps it's not Walter who's lacking intelligence.


Police in Oakland, California spent two hours attempting to subdue a

the police line, shouting "Please come out and give yourself up."


An Illinois man, pretending to have a gun, kidnapped a motorist and
forced him to drive to two different automated teller machines, wherein the
kidnapper proceeded to withdraw money from his own bank accounts.


A man walked into a Topeka, Kansas Kwik Stop, and asked for all the money
in the cash drawer. Apparently, the take was too small, so he tied up the
store clerk and worked the counter himself for three hours until police
up and grabbed him.


Police in Los Angeles had good luck with a robbery suspect who just
couldn't control himself during a line-up. When detectives asked each

It was very sluggish in almost every manoeuvre, no matter how much power
was applied. After about an hour of trying to make it go, they putted to a
nearby marina, thinking someone there could tell them what was wrong.
A thorough topside check revealed everything in perfect working condition.

The engine ran fine, the outdrive went up and down, the prop was the correct
size and pitch. So, one of the marina guys jumped in the water to check

Under the boat, still strapped securely in place, was the trailer!

Came across a link to song lyrics today and died out laughing. Strange when you look back on these songs with a little bit of a dirty mind and some imagination, how they just don't seem quite right, you know?

farmer got pulled over by a state trooper for speeding, and the trooper started to lecture the farmer about his speed and, in general, began to throw his
weight around to try to make the farmer uncomfortable.

Finally, the trooper got around to writing out the ticket, and as he was doing that he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around his head.

The farmer said, "Having some problems with circle flies there, are ya?"

The trooper stopped writing the ticket and said—"Well yeah, if that's what they are—I never heard of circle flies."

So the farmer says, "Well, circle flies are common on farms. See, they're called circle flies because they're almost always found circling around the back end
of a horse."

The trooper says, "Oh," and goes back to writing the ticket. Then after a minute he stops and says, "Hey… wait a minute, are you trying to call me a horse's

The farmer says, "Oh no, Officer. I have too much respect for law enforcement and police officers to even think about calling you a horse's ***."

The trooper says, "Well, that's a good thing," and goes back to writing the ticket.

After a long pause, the farmer says, "Hard to fool them flies though."

My grandfather's joke (deemed inappropriate by the Forum Gods) was deleted by the moderator. I formally apologize to the forum and feel bad for the hint of inappropriateness associated with that turgid prose!

Thanks for your concern Scott.

Sorry SoilDoc - I do sympathize with your loss but the joke was inappropriate for this forum - no big deal. I hate doing this.....General rules are here:

LONDON (Reuters)

- After a year of painstaking scientific research, the
world's funniest joke was revealed on Thursday.

In a project described as the largest-ever scientific study into humor, the British
Association for the Advancement of Science ( news - web sites) asked Internet
users around the world to submit their favorite jokes and rate the funniness of
other people's offerings.

More than 40,000 jokes from 70 countries and two million critiques later, this is it:

"Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't
seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other man pulls out his phone
and calls emergency services.

He gasps to the operator: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator in
a calm, soothing voice replies: "Take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's

There is a silence, then a shot is heard.

Back on the phone, the hunter says, "Ok, now what?"

Researchers found significant differences between nations in the types of jokes
they found funny.

People from the UK, the Republic of Ireland, Australia and New Zealand
preferred gags involving word play, such as:

PATIENT: "Doctor, I've got a strawberry stuck up my bum."

DOCTOR: "I've got some cream for that."

Americans and Canadians favored jokes where people were made to look

TEXAN: "Where are you from?"

HARVARD GRAD: "I come from a place where we do not end our
sentences with prepositions."

TEXAN: "OK -- where are you from, jackass?"

Meanwhile, many Europeans liked gags that were surreal or made light of
serious subjects such as illness, death and marriage:

A patient says, "Doctor, last night I made a Freudian slip, I was having dinner
with my mother-in-law and wanted to say: 'Could you please pass the butter?'

"But instead I said: 'You silly cow, you have completely ruined my life.'"

Marriage-mocking also featured in the top American joke:

"A man and a friend are playing golf one day. One of the guys is about to chip
onto the green when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the

"He stops in mid-swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes, and bows down in
prayer. His friend says: 'Wow that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I
have ever seen. You are truly a kind man.'

"The man then replies: 'Yeah, well, we were married 35 years.'"

Death earned big laughs in Scotland:

"I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather. Not screaming in terror
like his passengers."

And animals figured prominently. Take the number one joke in England:

"Two weasels are sitting on a bar stool. One starts to insult the other one. He
screams, 'I slept with your mother!'

"The bar gets quiet as everyone listens to see what the other weasel will do.

"The first again yells, 'I SLEPT WITH YOUR MOTHER!'

"The other says: 'Go home dad, you're drunk.'"

The survey revealed other fun facts:

-- Of the countries rating the highest number of jokes, Germans, perhaps
surprisingly, laughed the most. Canadians laughed least.

-- If you want to tell a funny animal joke, make it a duck.

-- The most frequently submitted joke, at 300 times, was: "What's brown and
sticky? A stick."

Researchers said no one ever found it funny.

Condi: You want Kofi?

George: No.

Condi: You don't want Kofi?

George: No. But now that you mention it, I could use a glass of milk. And
then get me the U.N.

Condi: Yes, sir.

George: Not Yassir! The guy at the U.N.

Condi: Kofi?

George: Milk! Will you please make the call?

Condi: And call who?

George: Who is the guy at the U.N?

Condi: Hu is the guy in China.

George: Will you stay out of China?!

Condi: Yes, sir.

George: And stay out of the Middle East! Just get me the guy at the U.N.

Condi: Kofi.

George: All right! With cream and two sugars. Now get on the phone.

(Condi picks up the phone.)

Condi: Rice, here.

George: Rice? Good idea. And a couple of egg rolls, too. Maybe we should send some to the guy in China. And the Middle East. Can you get Chinese food in the Middle East?;Db; ;Db;

Larry wakes up at home with a huge hangover. He forces himself to
open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins and a
glass of water on the side table. He sits down and sees his clothing in
front of him, all clean and pressed.

Larry looks around the room and sees that it is in a perfect order,
spotless, clean. So's the rest of the house. He takes the aspirins and
notices a note on the table "Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left
early to go shopping. Love you."

So he goes to the kitchen and sure enough there is a hot breakfast
and the morning newspaper. His son is also at the table, eating. Larry
asks, "Son, what happened last night?"

His son says, "Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk and delirious.
Broke some furniture, puked in the hallway, and gave yourself a black
eye when you stumbled into the door."

Confused, Larry asks, "So, why is everything in order and so clean,
and breakfast is on the table waiting for me?"

His son replies, "Oh that! Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when
she tried to take your pants off you said, "Lady leave me alone, I'm
