Now we feel no rain
For each of us will be shelter for the other.
Now we will feel no cold
For each of us will be warmth to the other
Now we are two persons
But there is one life before us.
Let us go now to enter the days of our life together.

Life is truly a ride. We're all strapped in, and no one can stop it. As you make each passage from youth to adulthood to maturity, sometimes you put your arms up and scream, sometimes you just hang on to that bar in front of you. But the ride is the thing. I think the most you can hope for at the end of life is that your hair's messed, you're out of breath, and you didn't throw up. — Jerry Seinfeld

I read somewhere that 77 per cent of all the mentally ill live in poverty. Actually, I'm more intrigued by the 23 per cent who are apparently doing quite well for themselves. — Emo Philips

If I were a superhero, I wouldn't choose a name with "man" at the end, like Batman or Superman. I'd be Batdude or Superdude — it sounds more laid back and I bet women would be more attracted to me and that’s what those guys are really out for anyway. — Michael Levine

White House brand apple juice is suing Dan Parisi, the owner of the pornographic Internet address, in federal court, contending he is infringing on the company's trademark by using the Web address to display X-rated pictures. In a letter to Parisi, attorneys for the Virginia-based National Fruit Product Company said the site "dilutes and tarnishes the distinctive quality of our client's famous mark in violation of ... the Federal Trademark Act...''

The real Patch Adams went patch-less and pant-less during an anti-nuclear protest in which about 50 people marched naked down a busy San Francisco street. Adams, who inspired the Robin Williams movie, paraded in chilly weather Sunday and chanted "Disrobe for disarmament'' and "Nudes, not nukes.'' Nonviolent people "really have so few tools to face a capitalist system,'' Adams told the crowd as they disrobed...
— So he displayed the only tool he could...

Gov. Jesse Ventura's approval rating has plunged almost 20% in Minnesota since a Playboy interview in which he called organized religion a sham. Almost three out of five Minnesotans said they do not think the governor is a good role model...

According to The New York Post, Monica Lewinsky is getting $10,000 for every pound she sheds by the Jenny Craig diet conglomerate. If she drops from her all-time high of 223 lbs. to a svelte 123, she'll net $1 million...

(Manchester, NH) — Following Ronald Reagan's prime directive, the remaining Republican presidential candidates — all in New Hampshire campaigning for the nation's first primary — indicated they were in complete agreement on the issue of "whether they would kick fellow candidate Elizabeth Dole out of bed."

"Absolutely not, it's a no-brainer," indicated a clearly aroused Steve Forbes, for whom not only inflation concerns had raised its ugly head.

Front-runner George W. Bush enthusiastically agreed. "Would I do it? Today. Five years ago. 15 years ago. 25 years ago. I have always been a believer in Passionate Conservatism."

"She's fly," said an animated Alan Keyes; "real fly."

John McCain confessed that "for years, I spent hour after tedious hour in a Hanoi prison while Charlie kept me locked up with only torture to break the monotony. During that time, I developed an active sexual imagination, one which I have trained on Mrs. Dole often."

For Dan Quayle, "it all boils down to a little Mommy thing I've got going. I want to be good. But, sometimes I'm bad."

Mrs. Dole indicated that, while she was flattered by the attention, they were all "a bunch of sick fucks." — Reported by Jim Rosenberg


The blonde went to her friend's place to tell her about a horrible experience she had the previous night with this guy she took home.

The friend asked, "Well, what happened when you got there?"

The blonde said, "After sex the S.O.B. called me a slut!"

"What did you do then?" the friend asked, somewhat shocked.

The blonde said "I told him to get the hell out of my bedroom, and take his eight friends with him!"

(This Week's Selected Excerpt from
"Women Are from Bras, Men Are from Penus" --
A Survival Guide for Bypassing Communication
and Getting Even in Your Relationship)

Although men are "flatulence-propelled", women are "flattery-operated". Women love to be flattered. But the man must know the correct way to flatter in order to achieve his goal, which is complete and total submission. Achieving this illustrious, low-life goal takes a bit of time, and a man must start off slow, building the flattery to a fine-tuned crescendo.

To do this a man must understand a woman's needs, which are simple and constant. Women need to:

     • Feel young
     • Feel skinny
     • Feel sexy

A man must make reference to these needs under all circumstances, at every possible opportunity. For example, he might say:

For her need to feel young
"When the beam of the officer's flashlight hit your panic-stricken face after he stopped you for speeding, I couldn't help but think how you looked sixteen years old again — just like the first time you were arrested for shoplifting."

For her need to feel skinny
"Gee, I'm real sorry your grandfather died, but as you were leaning over the coffin to kiss him good-bye, I noticed how slim your ass looked."

For her need to feel sexy
"You know, when those baggy sweat pants cling to your buttocks as you lumber to the fridge for yet another Dove Bar, I just go wild! I don't know whether to grab you by your expandable-elastic waistband, or wrestle you to the ground in a pagan fertility ritual.

Notice how a man can use these seemingly inappropriate situations as an opportunity for flattery. Before you know it, by using these simple methods, you'll have a woman so flattered, she'll be flat on her back!

In case you missed the article, someone found a condom in a McDonald's hamburger a few weeks ago. Here is David Letterman's top ten McDonald's excuses for the condom in the Big Mac:

10. We were test marketing the new "McRibbed."
9. Condom, Condiment.....What's the damned difference.
8. It still tastes better than the Arch Deluxe.
7. It was either there, or in the vanilla shake.
6. Turns out the rumors about Grimace and Mayor McCheese are true.
5. We're experimenting with a new, even happier meal.
4. Employees too embarrassed to ask "Would you like a condom with that?"
3. So what? A regular Big Mac is 60% latex anyway.
2. Drive-thru speaker broken: "Coke with lots of ice" sounds like "Prophylactic device."

     And the number one McDonald's Excuse for the Condom in the Big Mac:

1. When you're serving billions and billions, you can't be too careful.

An accountant decided to leave his wife one day. He left her a note saying: "Dear Jane, I am 54 years old and I have never done anything wild. So I'm leaving you for an 18 year old blonde model. We'll be staying at the Sheraton."

He then packed his things and went there.

When he arrived at the Sheraton, there was a message for him from his wife. It read: "Dear John, I too am 54 years old. I have followed your example and am staying at the Hyatt with an 18 year old Italian hunk. And I'm sure that you, as an accountant, will appreciate that 18 goes into 54 many many more times than 54 goes into 18!"


A father comes home and asks where his son is. His wife replies that he's downstairs playing with his new chemistry set. The father is curious so he wanders down stairs to see what his son is doing. As he's walking down the steps he hears a banging sound.
When he gets to the bottom he sees his son pounding a nail into the wall. He says to his son, "What are you doing? I thought you were playing with your chemistry set. Why are you hammering a nail into the wall?"

His son replied, "This isn't a nail, dad, it's a worm. I put these chemicals on it and it became hard as a rock."

His dad thought about it for a minute and said, "I'll tell you what son, give me those chemicals and I'll give you a new Volkswagen."

His son quite naturally said, "Sure why not.'' The next day his son went into the garage to see his new car. Parked in the garage was a brand new Mercedes. Just then his dad walked in. He asked his father where his Volkswagen was.

His dad replied, "It's right there behind the Mercedes. The Mercedes is from your mother..."

Note from The Goddess: Most of these are repeats that I used probably close to a year ago, but I'm running out of female-bashing jokes — there just aren't that many good ones out there. I try to be an equal-opportunity slanderer and run an equal amount of Male vs. Female, Democrats vs. Republicans, Yankees vs. Southerners, Intellectual vs. Moron, etc. jokes. There are definitely more funny jokes about Males, Republicans, Southerners, and Morons in these categories than about their counterparts. For the record, I'm a Female Southern Democrat, and much closer to Intellectual (at least as opposed to moron...). Oh, no — since the true underdog here is the Male Southern Republican Moron and that perfectly describes my 1st ex, Cro-Magnon Man, perhaps I am just a *little* prejudiced... LOL

Anyway, to all the men out there: Send me some of your favorite female-bashing jokes!

• Breaking up would be a lot easier. A smack to the butt and a, "Nice hustle, you'll get 'em next time," would pretty much do it.
• Birth control would come in ale or lager.
• Valentine's Day would be moved to February 29th so it would only occur in leap years.
• On Groundhog Day, if you saw your shadow, you'd get the day off to go drinking. Mother's Day too.
• St. Patrick's Day, however, would remain exactly the same. But it would be celebrated every month.
• Garbage would take itself out.
• Regis and Kathy Lee would be chained to a cement mixer and pushed off the Golden Gate Bridge for the most lucrative pay-per-view event in world history.
• The only show opposite "Monday Night Football" would be "Monday Night Football from a Different Camera Angle."
• Instead of "beer-belly", you'd get "beer-biceps".
• Tanks would be far easier to rent.
• Two words... "Ally McNaked".
• When a cop gave you a ticket, every smart-aleck answer you responded with would actually reduce your fine. As in:
     Cop: "You know how fast you were going?"
     You: "All I know is, I was spilling my beer all over the place."
     Cop: "Nice one, That's $10.00 off".
• People would never talk about how fresh they felt.
• Daisy Duke shorts would never go out of style again.
• Every man would get four real "Get Out of Jail Free" cards per year.
• Telephones would cut off after 30 seconds of conversation.
• The victors in any athletic competition would get to kill and eat the losers.
• It would perfectly legal to steal a sports car, as long as you returned it the following day with a full tank of gas.
• Instead of a fancy, expensive engagement ring, you could present your wife-to-be with a giant foam hand that said, "You're #1!"
• When your girlfriend really needed to talk to you during the game, she'd appear in a little box in the corner of the screen during a time-out.
• Nodding and looking at your watch would be deemed as an acceptable response to "I love you".
• The funniest guy in the office would get to be CEO.
• "Sorry I'm late, but I got wasted last night," would be an acceptable excuse for tardiness.
• At the end of the workday a whistle would blow and you would jump out of your window and slide down the tail of a brontosaurus and right into your car.
• Hallmark would make "Sorry, what was your name again?" cards.


According to the Knight-Ridder News Service, the inscription on the metal bands used by the U.S. Department of the Interior to tag migratory birds has been changed. The bands used to bear the address of the Washington Biological Survey, abbreviated: "Wash. Biol. Surv." until the agency received the following letter from an Arkansas camper:

"Dear Sirs:
While camping last week I shot one of your birds. I think it was a crow. I followed the cooking instructions on the leg tag and I want to tell you it was horrible."

The bands are now marked Fish and Wildlife Service.

The psychiatrist was holding a group consultation with three young mothers and their small children.

"You all have obsessions," he told them.

To the first one, he said, "Your obsession is eating. Why you've even named your daughter Candy."

The second, he said, was obsessed by money. "Again, it manifests itself in your child's name, Penny."

At this point, the third mother arose and, taking her little boy by the hand, whispered, "Let's go, Peter."

"Something a little different" was what Bill prescribed when his friend Bob complained that making love to his wife was becoming boring.

"Get creative, Bob," Bill said. "Break up the monotony. Why don't you try playing doctor with her for an hour? That's what I do."

"Sounds great," Bob replied, "but how do you make it last for an hour?"

"Just keep her in the waiting room for 55 minutes!"


For those returning to school, here is an inside look at how professors grade their final exams:

Dept. Of Statistics:
All grades are fitted to a normal curve.

Dept. Of Psychology:
Students are asked to blot ink in their exam books, close them and turn them in. The professor opens the books and assigns the first grade that comes to mind.

Dept. Of History:
All students get the same grade they got last year.

Dept. Of Theology:
Grade is determined by God.

Dept. Of Philosophy:
What is a grade?

Law School:
Students are asked to defend their position of why they should receive an A when they really deserve an F.

Dept. Of Mathematics:
Grades are variable.

Dept. Of Computer Science:
Random number generator determines grade.

Music Department:
Each student must figure out his grade by listening to the instructor play the corresponding note (+ and - would be sharp and flat respectively). Tone-deaf students fail.

Dept. Of Physical Education:
Everybody gets an A.

A young girl going out on her first date told her grandmother about it.

The grandmother says, "Sit here and let me tell you about those young boys. He is going to try to kiss you, you are going to like that, but don't let him do that.

"He is going to try to feel your breast, you are going to like that, but don't let him do that.

"He is going to try to put his hand between your legs, you are going to like that, but don't let him do that.

"But most important, he is going to try to get on top of you and have his way with you. You are going to like that, but don't let him do that, it will disgrace the family."

With that bit of advice, the granddaughter went on her date and could not wait to tell her grandmother about it.

The next day she told her grandmother that her date went just as she said it would.

"But," she said, "grandmother, I didn't let him disgrace the family. When he tried, I turned over, got on top of him and disgraced HIS family!"
