And, the NUMBER ONE thing men would do if they woke up as a woman...

With Viagra such a great medical success for increasing men's sexual prowess, Pfizer is bringing forth a whole line of drugs oriented towards improving the performance of men in today's society.. Here are a few of the new ones:

DIRECTRA - a dose of this drug given to men before leaving on car trips caused 72 percent of them to stop and ask directions when they got lost, compared to a control group of 0.2 percent.

PROJECTRA - Men given this experimental new drug were far more likely to actually finish a household repair project before starting a new one.

COMPLIMENTRA - In clinical trials, 82 percent of middle-aged men administered this drug noticed that their wives had a new hairstyle. Currently being tested to see if its effects extend to noticing new clothing.

BUYAGRA - Married and otherwise attached men reported a sudden urge to buy their sweeties expensive jewelry and gifts after talking this drug for only two days. Still to be seen: whether the drug can be continued for a period longer than your favorite store's return limit.

NEGA-VIAGRA - Has the exact opposite effect of Viagra. Currently undergoing clinical trials on sitting U.S. presidents.

NEGA-SPORTAGRA - This drug had the strange effect of making men want to turn off televised sports and actually converse with other family members.

FLYAGRA - This drug has been showing great promise in treating men with O.F.D. (Open Fly Disorder). Especially useful for men on Viagra.

PRYAGRA - About to fail its clinical trial, this drug gave men in the test group an irresistible urge to dig into the personal affairs of other people.
Note: Apparent overdose turned three test subjects into "special prosecutors."

LIAGRA - This drug causes men to be less than truthful when being asked about their sexual affairs. Will be available in Regular, Grand Jury and Presidential Strength versions.

Many Universities, government offices and businesses tend to strip the last name down to 6 characters and add the first and last initial to either the begining or end to make up an e-mail address, ie Mary L. Ferguson = mlfergus or fergusml.

They are just now beginning to realize the problems this practice may cause when you have a large and diverse pool of people to support with e-mail. Add to that a large database of company/college acronyms and you have some very funny addresses (although they are undoubtedly not funny to the individual involved).

Some examples of actual e-mail addresses seen on the Net:

Hellen Thomas Eatons
(Duke University)

Martha Elizabeth Cummins
(Fresno University)

George David Blowmer
(Drop Front Drawers & Cabinets Inc.)

Mary Ellen Dickinson
(Indiana University of Pennsylvania)

Francis Kevin Kissinger
(Las Verdes University)

Barbara Joan Beeranger
(Myplace Home Decorating)

Amanda Sue Pickering
(Purdue University)

Ida Beatrice Ballinger
(Ball State University)

Bradley Thomas Kissering
(Brady Electrical, Northern Division, Overton Canada)

Isabelle Haydon Adcock
(Toys "R" Us)


Subject: Viagra Alert!

DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT take Viagra in conjunction with iron tablets (Fe). If you do, you will continuously spin around and point north.

End of Alert message.

A mother was walking down the hall when she heard a humming sound coming from her daughters bedroom. When she opened the door she found her daughter naked on the bed with a vibrator. "What are you doing?" she exclaimed.

The daughter replied, "I'm 35 and still living at home with my parents and this is the closest I'll ever get to a husband."

Later that week the father was in the kitchen and heard a humming sound coming from the basement. When he went downstairs, he found his daughter naked on a sofa with her vibrator. "What are you doing?" he exclaimed.

The daughter replied, "I'm 35 and still living at home with my parents and this is the closest I'll ever get to a husband."

A couple of days later the mother heard the humming sound again, this time in the living room. Upon entering the room, she found her husband watching television with the vibrator buzzing away beside him. "What are you doing?" she asked.

He replied, "Watching the game with my son-in-law."

One of the goals of a teacher is to try and stretch the skills of your students. Alas, the results are not always breathtaking. These are the results of encouraging students to use comparisons.


Doctors aren't touting one major side effect of the impotency drug, Viagra. Men will be forced to make conversation for an hour before the pill kicks in...

The British were very impressed with a NASA invention that would launch dead chickens at an airplane to simulate mid air collisions with water fowl. They immediately decided to try it on their own bullet trains. The first time they launched a chicken they sat horrified as it easily penetrated the window and broke the engineer's setback in two. They sent the test results to NASA and begged them for some design input on the problem. NASA wrote back, "Thaw the chicken."

But before NASA feels too proud . . .

Another NASA invention that became widely popular with people who had more money than things to spend it on was the pen that could write upside down and under water. When the astronauts complained about that same problem, NASA spent over a million dollars to find the answer and came up with a marvel of a pen. When the Russian cosmonauts faced that problem, they started taking pencils with them.

Two nuns Sister Marilyn and Sister Helen are traveling through Europe in their car. They get to Transylvania and are stopped at a traffic light. Suddenly, out of nowhere, a diminutive Dracula jumps onto the hood of the car and hisses through the windshield.

"Quick, quick!" shouts Sister Marilyn. "What shall we do?"

"Turn the windshield wipers on. That will get rid of the abomination," says Sister Helen.

Sister Marilyn switches them on, knocking Dracula about, but he clings on and continues hissing at the nuns. "What shall I do now?" she shouts.

"Switch on the windshield washer. I filled it up with Holy Water in the Vatican," says Sister Helen.

Sister Marilyn turns on the windshield washer. Dracula screams as the water burns his skin, but he clings on and continues hissing at the nuns.

"Now what?" shouts Sister Marilyn.

"Show him your cross," says Sister Helen.

"Now you're talking," says Sister Marilyn as she opens the window and shouts, "Get the fuck off our car!"

The lady, not realizing her gaffe, says, "Well then, where are your buccaneers?"

The boy says, "Jeez, lady, they're on my buckin' head!"

One day, the Lord decided to make a companion for Adam. He summoned St. Peter and told him of his decision. He told St. Peter that he wanted to make a being who was similar to man, yet was different, and could offer him comfort, companionship and pleasure. The Lord said he would call this being a woman.

So St. Peter went about creating this being which was similar to man yet was different in ways that would be appealing and could provide physical pleasure to man. When St. Peter had finished creating this being who could now be called woman he summoned The Lord.

"Ah, St. Peter, once again you have done an excellent job," said The Lord.

"Thank You, Great One," replied St. Peter. "I am now ready to provide the brain, nerve endings and senses to the being, this woman. I require your assistance on this matter, Lord."

"You shall make her brain slightly smaller, yet more intuitive, more feeling, more compassionate, and more adaptable than man's," said The Lord.

"The nerve endings," said St. Peter. "How many will I put in her hands?"

"How many did we put in Adam?" asked The Lord.

"Two hundred, my Lord," replied St. Peter.

"Then we shall do the same for this woman," said The Lord.

"And how many nerve endings shall we put in her feet?" inquired St. Peter.

"How many did we put in Adam?" asked The Lord.

"Seventy-five, my Lord," replied St. Peter.

"Ah yes, these beings are constantly on their feet, so they benefit from having less nerve endings there. Do the same for woman," said the Lord.

"How many nerve endings should we put in woman's genitals?" inquired St. Peter.

"How many did we put in Adam?" asked The Lord.

"Four hundred and twenty, my Lord," replied St. Peter.

"Of course we did want Adam to have a means of receiving extra pleasure in his life, didn't we? Do the same for woman," said The Lord.

"Yes, my Lord," said St. Peter.

"No, wait," said The Lord. "Screw it, give her ten thousand! I want her to scream my name!"

Well, now you know!
