Foreploy: Any misrepresentation of yourself for the express purpose of obtaining sex.


If men ruled the world, they'd probably have sex every day. Maybe even 2 or 3 times a day. Therefore, we can safely conclude that MEN DON'T RULE THE WORLD! (omg I think I may be a man!!!!)

The space shuttle Columbia with history's first woman commander is now set for blastoff on Thursday.
Unfortunately, and typically, a man in Houston will still have the remote control.

Fifteen years ago on this month, Geraldine Ferraro became the first woman to be nominated for vice president by a major political party.
We now know that if she'd accepted by ripping her shirt off to reveal a sports bra, the world would be hers.

Sex will not only make you healthier, happier and wiser but it can also help prevent headaches, a German women's magazine reported Tuesday.
This directly contradicts the findings of the American Society of Husbands which found that sex causes headaches.

Johnson & Johnson, the world leader in the oral contraceptives market, is in the final stages of testing a contraceptive patch for women that is effective for a week.
It will be marketed as "Madonna-strength".

Congress approved a cost-of-living pay raise for itself of more than $4,600.
That's $9,200 when you factor in the automatic NRA matching funds.

Russia said Monday the aging Mir space station could crash to earth next year unless Kazakhstan allows the launch by Sunday of a resupply ship carrying it a vital navigation system.

MICROSOFT TO SELL AD SPACE IN ERROR MESSAGES Microsoft announced that it is selling advertising space in the error messages that appear in Windows. Acknowledging for the first time that the average user of their operating system encounters error messages at least several times a day, Microsoft is trying to take financial advantage of the unavoidable opportunity to make an ad impression. "We estimate that throughout the world at any given moment several million people are getting a "general protection fault" or "illegal operation" warning. We will be able to generate significant revenue by including a short advertising message along with it," said Microsoft marketing director Nathan Mirror. The Justice Department immediately indicated that they intend to investigate whether Microsoft is gaining an unfair advantage in reaching the public with this advertising by virtue of its monopolistic control over error messages.

EBAY TO AUCTION OFF ITS OWN UNRELIABLE WEB SERVER The online auction site Ebay put its own web site computer server up for auction after it repeatedly crashed and denied millions of its members from bidding on items ranging from Chia Pets to stolen US. Military Surface to Air Missiles. The server, which eBay purchased two years ago from America Online after they upgraded operations to handle more than 36 users simultaneously, has been giving the popular auction site problems over the past month that has resulted in numerous outages. "We're selling that piece of crap and getting a new server with the proceeds," said eBay operations manager Bud Hawkins. When asked how people will be able to place their bids until the new server is purchased, he replied, "Ask the owners, they're the ones who've put me in this #&*(! position. That is, if you can find them. Every time something goes wrong those money bag weasels disappear."

GEORGE W. BUSH STALKS POWERBALL WINNER FOR CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTION Republican presidential candidate George W. Bush has been stalking a Minnesota woman who won $78 million in the Powerball lottery. Farrah Slad of Brainerd in central Minnesota said that since she won the hefty jackpot, Bush has been hounding her first by phone and now in person to contribute a substantial portion of her winnings to his campaign. "He's relentless and creepy and shows no sense of decency. It's as if he's obsessed with grabbing as much money as he can for his damn campaign," she said in a frightened tone from an undisclosed location. Though campaign finance limits an individual's contribution to $1000, Bush reportedly is trying to get Ms. Slad to contribute to an affiliated committee that accepts unlimited amounts of the unregulated soft money. A press spokesman for Bush denied that the Texas governor has been harassing the lottery winner. "He may have spoken with her a few times about how she could be instrumental in putting a compassionate conservative into the White House but I wouldn't characterize it as any more pressure than the governor has put on other potential donors," he said.

One morning this blonde calls her friend and says "Please come over and help me. I have this killer jigsaw puzzle, and I can't figure out how to start it."

Her friend asks "What is it a puzzle of?"

The blonde says "From the picture on the box, it's a tiger."

So, the blonde's friend figures that he's pretty good at puzzles, so he heads over to her place. She lets him in the door and shows him to the table where she has the puzzle spread all over the table.

He studies the pieces for a minute, then studies the box. He then turns to her and says: "First, no matter what I do, I'm not going to be able to show you how to assemble these to look like the picture of that tiger."

"Second, I'd advise you to have a cup of coffee and put all these Frosted Flakes back in the box."

We all have met people that say one thing and mean another. Many well known people have spoken out on various topics. We have listed some quotes and what we believe was actually meant.

"There ought to be limits to freedom." Republican presidential candidate and Texas Gov. George W. Bush responding to a parody site poking fun at him and his campaign web site.
People should only be allowed to make fun of Bill Clinton not George W. Bush.

"You watch Pat Verbeek play, he turns his stick over every time, and it's a two-hand swing...Is that an intent to hurt one of our guys? It's darn close." Buffalo Sabres coach Lindy Ruff on Dallas Stars' player Pat Verbeek.
I wish he played for us.

"I am sorry for exercising bad judgment and can assure everyone this will never happen again." Florida Gov. Jeb Bush's wife Columba after she was fined by customs officials for failing to declare $19,000 in clothing and jewelry she bought during a trip to Paris.
I didn't think customs officials would check a Governor's wife. Next time I will hide it better.

"The Democrats chose today to play politics, and to say no to everything." Rep. Tom DeLay, R-Texas commenting after the House of Representatives rejected a watered-down gun control bill.
The Democrats are learning from us Republicans how politics works.

"A bill I helped draft." GOP presidential candidate Gary Bauer on the legislative amendment passed by the House allowing the posting of the Ten Commandments in schools.
I helped draft the Ten Commandments.

"We should let the independent counsel law expire. We should give it a decent burial. We should let the Constitution be our guide." Sen. Fred Thompson R-Tenn
I sure as hell don't want it around when I am President.

"That clearly shows that you don't have to have a big brain to be brilliant." Dr. Sandra Witelson explaining that the weight and overall size of Albert Einstein's preserved brain fall within the normal range.
Size doesn't least with brains.

"Old guys can still do stuff, and you might as well go for it...I feel like a spring colt." Former president George Bush, after skydiving to mark his 75th birthday.
I may be old but I don't have any erectile dysfunction and advertise Viagra like some people I know who's wife is running for president.

"Tommy has been fixed actually. He has been neutered or spayed. What do you call it?" Pamela Anderson Lee, TV star, asked whether she is pregnant by her on-again, off-again spouse Tommy Lee.
Tommy has been spayed, declawed, house trained, given a flea bath and my rash has finally begun to clear up.

"I have received a few hundred in the mail... I've given them to all my grandchildren, and I deeply appreciate it" The Rev. Jerry Falwell, on Tinky Winky, a toy that his organization's newsletter said was gay.
My grandchildren are now all gay and I've been playing with Tinky Winky myself and now find myself extremely attracted to Jim Nabors. SHAZAM!

"I see people passed out and I don't even think about it. But I wouldn't expect anybody to come on the train and die." Sean Grant, on learning that a passenger who appeared to be sleeping had actually died on a New York City subway.
If I knew he was dead I would've lifted his wallet.

"We are constrained to conclude that student-on-student sexual harassment, if sufficiently severe, can likewise rise to the level of discrimination actionable under the statute." Sandra Day O'Conner, Supreme Court Justice, ruling that schools can be sued if they allow sexual harassment among students.
If Clarence Thomas puts one more pubic hair on my glass of Coke I'm suing his black ass.

"It doesn't take a lot of talent to get shot down." Arizona Sen. John McCain, former naval aviator, Vietnam POW whose plane was shot down on being called a war hero.
When I was single I got shot down a lot.

"Prosperity with a purpose." George W. Bush during a campaign swing in South Carolina.
If elected, my purpose will be to increase my prosperity.

"What he did was inexcusable, and particularly as a father, I felt that it was terribly wrong, obviously." Vice President Al Gore, on President Clinton's extramarital affair with Monica Lewinsky.
As a father I would never leave my daughters in the same room with that S.O.B. By the way, has anyone seen my daughters or Tipper recently?

A woman complains to her friend that her husband is losing interest in sex, and he prefers nights out with the lads to the joys of copulation.

Her friend tells her that to win his love, she must make more effort (like watching more football?). She advises her to cook her man his favorite meal and then send him drinking down to the pub with his pals. When he returns, she must be dressed in her naughtiest lingerie and look her most beautiful.

The following evening, she does exactly as instructed and is dressed to kill by the time her man returns. When he sees her lying on the bed in all her gear, he tells her to stand up and take it all off. He then tells her to do a hand stand against the bedroom mirror and open her legs.

This excites the woman immensely as her husband has never been this erotic before.

She does as instructed, and then he puts his face between her legs, faces the mirror and says, "No, no... maybe the lads are right. A beard wouldn't suit me."


While proudly showing off his new apartment to friends, a college student led the way into the den.

"Watch!" the man said then proceeded to give the gong an ear shattering pound with
the hammer.

Suddenly, someone screamed from the other side of the wall, "KNOCK IT OFF, YOU JERK! It's two AM in the morning!"

Three doctors are waiting in line to get into the pearly gates. St. Peter walks out and asks the first one, "What have you done to enter Heaven?"

"I am a pediatrician and have brought thousands of the Lord's babies into the world."

"Good enough to enter the gates," replied St. Peter and in he goes. The same question is asked of the second doctor.

"I am a general practitioner and go to Third World countries three times a year to cure the poor." St. Peter is impressed and allows him through the gates.

The third doctor steps up in line and knowing the question, blurts out, "I am a director of an HMO."

St. Peter meditates on this for a while and then says, "Fine, you can enter Heaven... but only for 2 days."


ComedyZine's investigative reporters found these Little Known Animal Facts. We cannot prove them and make no claims that they are true. You decide.

A cat's jaws cannot move sideways. However with the help of a sledgehammer it can move in all directions.

Pigs, walruses and light colored horses can be sunburned. That's why it is important to put sunblock with SPF of 15 or higher on your pig, walrus or light colored horse whenever they go outside.

A young wombat will climb into its mother's pouch. The female wombat has a backward opening pouch, this is to keep dirt from getting inside the pouch. The wombat has a large skull with about 20 to 25 bones in it. This is to prevent damage to young ones that may fall on their heads from a backward opening pouch

A pregnant goldfish is called a twit. A goldfish that uses a contraceptive is called smart.

The longest recorded flight of a chicken is 13 seconds. It was recorded by a Colonel Sanders in Kentucky.

The bloodhound is the only animal whose evidence is admissible in an American court of law. But only after the bloodhound raises its right paw and swears to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

Millie, the Bush family dog, earned more money in 1991 than President George Bush. Millie was also more popular and if she would've ran against Bill Clinton she would've won.

The duckbilled platypus is the only venomous mammal in the world, unless of course you include the sourpuss, commonly known as an ex-wife.

99% of all life forms known to exist on Earth are now extinct. If we try REAL hard 100% is possible.

The elephant is the only animal with 4 knees. The female elephant is the only animal that requires 2 sets of kneepads.

Cats have 5 toes on their forefeet and 4 toes on their hind feet proving that there are some people who have a lot of time on their hands.

Pollsters say that about 40% of dog and cat owners carry pictures of the pets in their wallets. Half of whom have pictures of their pets in compromising positions.

Neutering a cat extends its life span by 2 to 3 years, although not necessarily 2 to 3 happy years.

Americans spend more on dog food each year than they spend on baby food. This is because they like their dogs more than their babies.

Scientists still do not know how cats purr. Neither do cats.

The first commercial dog food on the market was Spratt's Patent Meal Fibrine Dog Cakes, introduced in Great Britain in 1870. Today it is sold as Spam.

This married couple was on holiday in Pakistan. They were touring around the marketplace looking at the goods and such, when they passed this small sandal shop. From inside they heard a gentleman with a Pakistani accent say, "You foreigners! Come in. Come indo my humble shop."

So the married couple walked in. The Pakistani man said to them, "I have some special sandals I tink you would be interested in. Dey make you wild at sex like a great desert camel."

Well, the wife was really interested in buying the sandals after what the man claimed, but her husband felt he really didn't need them, being the sex god he was.

The husband asked the man, "How could sandals make you into a sex freak?"

The Pakistani man replied, "Just try dem on, Sahib."

Well, the husband, after much badgering from his wife, finally conceded to try them on. As soon as he slipped them onto his feet, he got this wild look in his eyes; something his wife hadn't seen in many years raw sexual power. In a blink of an eye, the husband grabbed the Pakistani man, bent him violently over a table, yanked down his pants, and ripped down his own pants, and grabbed a firm hold of the Pakistani's thighs. The Pakistani then began screaming, "YOU HAVE DEM ON DE WRONG FEET!!!"
