LONDON, England A medical journal, The Lancet, recently reported a rare condition of a case of "spontaneous multiple orgasms." It seems a 44-year-old woman would undergo multiple orgasms when doing routine household chores like laundry. The report continued to outline that extreme distress was caused to the woman due to the uncontrollable nature and intensity of the feeling. She was eventually treated with a medication normally used on epilepsy patients and she is now orgasm-free.

[And this condition is bad?]
BRISBANE, Australia A recent party turned gruesome after a group of drunken Aussies decided to perform a makeshift operation on their drunken friend. The operation? You guessed it; a circumcision. They did not even use a knife, for one was not available so they used a broken beer bottle. The "patient" was so drunk he slept through the operation and was rushed to the hospital bleeding, but still passed out. The "friends" were charged with unlawful wounding.
[I wonder if this guy's friends were women.]

Josh said, "I can see that, but why?" Cheryl replied, "In case I have a flat and need to blow up one of my tires."

A retired four-star general ran into his former orderly, also retired, in a Manhattan bar and spent the rest of the evening persuading him to come work for him as his valet. "Your duties will be exactly the same as they were in the army," the general said. "Nothing to it you'll catch on again fast."
Next morning promptly at eight o'clock, the ex-orderly entered the ex-general's bedroom, pulled open the drapes, gave the general a gentle shake, strode around the other side of the bed, spanked his employer's wife on her bottom and said, "OK, sweetheart, it's back to the village for you."
A businessman from Wisconsin went on a business trip to Louisiana. Upon arrival, he immediately plugged his laptop into the hotel room port and sent a short email back home to his wife, Jennifer Johnson, at her address, JennJohn@world.net.
Unfortunately, in his haste, he mistyped a letter and the email ended up going to JeanJohn@world.net, a Jean Johnson in Duluth, the wife of a preacher who had just passed away and was buried that day. The preacher's wife took one look at the email and promptly fainted.
It read, "Arrived safely, but it sure is hot down here!"
THE TOP 10 SIGNS THE ANTICHRIST IS A VEGETARIAN
NOTE FROM CHRIS: A leading conservative candidate to succeed Pope John Paul II has warned that the Antichrist foreseen in the Book of Revelations is already among us. Cardinal Giacomo Biffi, 71, said that the modern Antichrist, identified in the Book of Revelations as a seven-headed beast, was most likely now disguised as a philanthropist supporting creeds like vegetarianism, animal rights or pacifism, or advocating dialogue with Orthodox or Anglican believers.
So how can you tell if the Antichrist is a vegetarian? Glad you asked...
10. His black shroud is really just a XXXL "Meat is Murder" T-shirt turned inside out.
9. Instead of roasting the flesh of infidels, the fires of Hell are now just used to roast marshmallows.
8. Mysteriously, a movement arises to replace communion wafers with body-free tofu-of-Christ.
7. Local organic gardens finding unprecedented crop yield when planted in a pentagram configuration.
6. He recoils at the sight of the cross of a T-bone.
5. Always bringing his crappy under-garlicked hummus to Microsoft company picnics.
4. Has started ordering his disciples to cut back on the goat sacrifices in favor of a vegan alternative.
3. Vanity license plate: BLZBROC
2. Have you *tasted* tofu, man? Is there any *doubt* that slop is the work of the Devil?
and Topfive.com's Number 1 Sign the Antichrist is a Vegetarian...

Paddy (having been a good Catholic boy) was a virgin and didn't have the faintest idea what to do next. Suddenly he had a brilliant idea.

Paddy was a bit dubious about this but his mother assured him that Bridget would love it.
