From The Emerald City


Hey folks, 

Due to flash no longer being available for 99% of the web browsers out there, I will no longer post flash animations. If you encounter previous posts that were of the flash variety, you have my apologies, but there are far too many posts to find them all. I will delete them as I find them.

Yours,

If only my wife was this dirty!

PASTA DIET -- IT REALLY WORKS !!

1.. You walka pasta da bakery. 

2.. You walka pasta da candy store. 

3.. You walka pasta da Ice Cream shop. 

4... You walka pasta da table and fridge. 

You will lose weight! AND...... CONCERNED ABOUT TOO MANY CARBS IN YOUR DIET? For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies. 

1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans. 

2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans. 

3. The Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans. 

4. The Italians drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans. 

5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans. 

CONCLUSION Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills.

They Walk Among Us

Some guy bought a new fridge for his house.

To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying: "Free to good home. You want it, you take it." For three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it. He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal.

It looked to good to be true, so he changed the sign to read:

"Fridge for sale $50."

The next day someone stole it. Caution...

While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which direction was north because, he explained, he didn't want the sun waking him up every
morning.

She asked, "Does the sun rise in the north?"

When my brother explained that the sun rises in the east, and has for sometime.

She shook her head and said, "Oh, I don't keep up with that stuff."

I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center.

One day I got a call from an individual who asked what hours the call center was open. I told him, "The number you dialed is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week."

He responded, "Is that Eastern or Pacific time?"

Wanting to end the call quickly, I said, "Uh, Pacific" .

R.I.P Walter Gretzky (1938-2021)

Walter Gretzky

Walter Gretzky, the father of hockey great Wayne Gretzky, has died. He was 82.

Wayne Gretzky said in a social media post Thursday night that his father battled Parkinson’s disease and other health issues the past few years.

“It’s with deep sadness that Janet and I share the news of the passing of my dad,” Wayne Gretzky said. “He bravely battled Parkinson’s and other health issues these last few years, but he never let it get him down.

“For me, he was the reason I fell in love with the game of hockey. He inspired me to be the best I could be not just in the game of hockey, but in life.”
Walter Gretzky, CM, OOnt (October 8, 1938 – March 4, 2021) was a Canadian who is best known as the father of ice hockey star Wayne Gretzky. An avid hockey player as a youth and a keen analyst of the game, he was credited by his son as playing a key role in his success. He coached Wayne continually, starting at age three, building him a backyard rink, devising creative exercises and drills, teaching him profound insights into how to play successfully, and accompanying him to most of his games. He taught his son to go "To where the puck is going, not where it's been."

Gretzky contributed to minor hockey in Canada, and helped many local, provincial, and national charities, for which he was honoured.

Weird Unsubstantiated Fact

MOSQUITOES ARE ATTRACTED TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE RECENTLY EATEN BANANAS



The very first ever Blond GUY joke..... And well worth the wait !!!!

An Irishman, a Mexican and a Blond Guy were doing construction work on scaffolding on the 20th floor of a building.

They were eating lunch and the Irishman said, "Corned beef and cabbage! If I get corned beef and cabbage one more time for lunch, I'm going to jump off this building."

The Mexican opened his lunch box and exclaimed, "Burritos again! If I get burritos one more time I'm going to jump off, too."

The blond opened his lunch and said, "Bologna again! If I get a bologna sandwich one more time, I'm jumping too."

The next day, the Irishman opened his lunch box, saw corned beef and cabbage, and jumped to his death.

The Mexican opened his lunch, saw a burrito, and jumped, too.

The blond guy opened his lunch, saw the bologna and jumped to his death as well.

At the funeral, the Irishman's wife was weeping.She said, "If I'd known how really tired he was of corned beef and cabbage, I never would have given it to him again!"

The Mexican's wife also wept and said, "I could have given him tacos or enchiladas! I didn't realize he hated burritos so much."

Everyone turned and stared at the blond's wife. The blond's wife said, "Don't look at me. He makes his own lunch."

Husband Store

A store that sells new husbands has just opened in New York City, where a woman may go to choose a husband.

Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:
You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 - These men Have Jobs.

The second floor sign reads: Floor 2 - These men Have Jobs and Love Kids.

The third floor sign reads: Floor 3 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.

"Wow," she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 4 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework.

"Oh, mercy me!" she exclaims, "I can hardly stand it!"

Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 5 - These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak.

She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 6 - You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

To avoid gender bias charges, the store's owner opens a New Wives store just across the street. The first floor has wives that love sex.

The second floor has wives that love sex and have money.

The third through sixth floors have never been visited.

TRUE or FALSE?

Andrew Jackson was plagued his entire life by a bullet wound to the chest, which he suffered in a duel.  In 1805, Charles Dickenson, the son-in-law of a man who owed Jackson a horse-race gambling debt, called Jackson “a worthless scoundrel . . . and a coward” in a Nashville, Tennessee, newspaper. Jackson challenged Dickenson to a duel. 
 
 
 
 
 
On May 30, 1806, Dickenson fired the first shot. The bullet broke two of Jackson’s ribs and lodged near his heart. As was the dueling custom, Dickenson could neither fire again nor move from his position until Jackson fired as well. Jackson took aim and fired a fatal shot from 24 paces. But his inoperable wound never healed properly and bothered him for the next 39 years. Andrew Jackson

The Love Doctor

The Love Doctor Dear Love Doctor,

This may sound pretty petty, but it has me very worried. My better half wants us to go on separate vacations this winter.

He says it would help us "charge our batteries" and he says it would be good for our relationship. We've been together about three years now and I've never thought there was anything wrong with our partnership.

"Paul" has already made reservations to go to a gay resort down south next month. He did it without even mentioning it to me beforehand. "Paul" says he's going with some friends from work, and says I should make my own plans and go somewhere I'd like.

He won't tell me the names of the people he's traveling with, and I'm getting suspicious.

"Paul" has always been headstrong, but really Doc, doesn't this sound just a bit fishy?


Signed,

Home Alone


Dear Home


I think you are right hearing those bells and whistles going off in your head. The tip off, of course, was not saying who he is going with.

But, suspicions aren't proof. And, it is obvious this is going to keep bothering you. So, it is time to bring the whole thing to a boil.

If you don't want separate holidays tell him so. Put your foot down and tell him why. If it turns out he is having a fling you will have to deal with that. Either you put up with it, or you will have to consider ending the relationship.

A partnership is just what the name implies, two equal parts.

Don't put up with less than you are prepared to give.

Lipstick in School -- Priceless

According to a news report, a certain private school in Washington was recently faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints. Every night the maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put them back.

lipstick on Mirror
Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night. To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required. He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror with it. Since then, there have been no lip prints on the mirror. There are teachers, and then there are educators.

The Flight Attendant

 British Airways Flight Attendant

A British Airway's passenger cabin was being served by an obviously gay flight attendant, who seemed to put everyone into a good mood as he served them food and drinks. 

As the plane prepared to descend, he came swishing down the aisle and announced to the passengers, "Captain Marvey has asked me to announce that he'll be landing the big scary plane shortly, lovely people, so if you could just put up your trays, that would be super." 

On his trip back up the aisle, he noticed that a well-dressed rather exotic looking woman hadn't moved a muscle. "Perhaps you didn't hear me over those big brute engines." he said, "I asked you to raise your trazy-poo so the main man can pitty-pat us on the ground." 

She calmly turned her head and said, "In my country, I am called a Princess. I take orders from no one." 

To which the flight attendant replied, without missing a beat, "Well, sweet-cheeks, in my country I'm called a Queen, so I outrank you - Tray-up, bitch."

Marcello: That's right.

Female Tourist: [ stumbling, on the verge of cracking up ] So, how did you learn to sork.. corks -- suck -- soak corks?

Marcello: Cheers! Cheers!
