What do you do when a blonde throws a hand grenade at you?
Pull the pin and throw it back.


There were three girls in the fifth grade, a brunette, a redhead and a blonde. Which one was more attractive?
The blonde, she was 18!


"North vs South"

A brunette from the South and a blonde from the North were seated side by side on a plane.

Being friendly, the woman from the South asked, "Where ya'll from?"

The Northern woman said, "From a place where they don't use a preposition at the end of a sentence."

The woman from the South sat quietly for a few moments and then replied, "So where ya'll from, Bitch?"

15. Instead of candy, give away colored eggs. If anyone protests, explain that the eggs are the only thing you had left over from Easter.

A married couple went to the hospital together to have their baby delivered. Upon their arrival, the doctor said he had invented a new machine that would transfer a portion of the mother's labor pain to the father. He asked if they were willing to try it out. They were both very much in favor of it and agreed.

The doctor set the knob to 10% for starters, explaining that even 10% was probably more pain that the father had ever experienced before. But as the labor progressed, the husband felt fine, so he asked the doctor to go ahead and bump it up a notch. The doctor then adjusted the machine to 20% pain transfer.

The husband was still feeling fine. The doctor checked the husband's blood pressure and pulse and was amazed at how well he was doing. At this, they decided to try for 50%.

The husband continued to feel quite well. Since it was obviously helping out his wife considerably, he encouraged the doctor to transfer ALL the pain to him. The wife delivered a healthy baby with virtually no pain. She and her husband were ecstatic.

When they got home from the hospital, they found the mailman dead on their front porch.

Excerpts from the syndicated column of Marilyn Vos Savant ("Ask Marilyn") where she lists some of the most perplexing questions that readers have sent in.



THE RULES (or " Damn! I Should've Married a Blonde!)

A 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 otherwise. 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'll be sex here at seven o'clock every night — whether you're here or not."

A koala bear meets a hooker in a bar and they decide to go back to her place. They get undressed, the koala bear proceeds to perform oral sex on the hooker for 3 hours straight and she has multiple orgasms. Afterwards, as he starts putting his clothes back on, the hooker says, "Oh my god, that was great! But now I need my money." The koala bear just looks at her and shrugs.

The hooker says, "No, I really need my money. I'm a hooker and this is how I make my living." The koala bear just looks at her and continues getting dressed. The hooker gets up, goes to the bookshelf, grabs a dictionary, thumbs through it until she gets to "hooker" and hands it to the koala bear. It reads, "hooker (hook' er) n. — 1. A person who has sex for money. 2. A prostitute."

The koala bear looks at her, then thumbs through the dictionary until he reaches "koala bear", then hands it to the hooker and walks out the door. Dumfounded, the hooker looks down at the dictionary and reads, "koala bear (ko-a' le bar) n. — An Australian arboreal marsupial having dense gray fur that eats bushes and leaves."


Two Trojan football players were taking an important final exam. If they failed, they would be on academic probation and not allowed to play in the Aloha Bowl the following week.

The exam was fill-in-the-blank. The last question read, "Old MacDonald had a ____."

Bubba was stumped. He had no idea of the answer. He knew he needed to get this one right to be sure he passed. Making sure the professor wasn't watching, he tapped Tiny on the shoulder. "Pssst. Tiny. What's the answer to the last question?"

Tiny laughed. He looked around to make sure the professor hadn't noticed then he turned to Bubba. "Bubba, you're so stupid. Everyone knows Old MacDonald had a farm."

"Oh yeah," said Bubba. "I remember now."

He picked up his No. 2 pencil and started to write the answer in the blank. He stopped. Reaching to tap Tiny's shoulder again, he whispered, "Tiny, how do you spell farm?"

"You are really dumb, Bubba. That's so easy. Farm is spelled E-I-E-I-O."


The scene was Mount Olympus, where Bacchus, the Greek god of wine, had thrown a party for a pair of visiting Roman deities — Ceres, the goddess of agriculture, and Janus, the two-faced god of doors and beginnings.

Everyone overdid it, more or less. Ceres at one point was staggering and turning in circles; Janus, equally submerged, was trying to dance with her. Bacchus feared that the pair might fall over, so he went to steady them. .... This marked the first time that a whirled Ceres was held with a double-header.

Once upon a time, a perfect man and a perfect woman met. After a perfect courtship, they had a perfect wedding. Their life together was, of course, perfect.

One snowy, stormy Christmas Eve, this perfect couple was driving their perfect car (a Grand Caravan) along a winding road, when they noticed someone in distress at the side of the road. Being the perfect couple, they stopped to help.

Lo and behold, there stood Santa Claus with a huge bundle of toys. Not wanting to disappoint any children on the eve of Christmas, the perfect couple loaded Santa and his toys into their vehicle. Soon they were driving along delivering the toys.
Unfortunately, the driving conditions deteriorated and the perfect couple and Santa Claus had an awful accident. Only one of them survived the accident.



The perfect woman survived. She's the only one who really existed in the first place. Everyone knows there is no Santa Claus, and there is no such thing as a perfect man.




So, if there is no perfect man and no Santa Claus, the perfect woman must have been driving. This explains why there was a car accident in the first place.

By the way, if you're a woman and you're reading this, this illustrates another point: Women never listen.
