God was sitting in heaven one day when a scientist said to Him,

"God, we don't need you anymore. Science has finally figured out a way to create life out of nothing - in other words, we can now do what you did in the beginning."

"Oh, is that so? Me..." replies God.

"Well," says the scientist, "we can take dirt and form it into the likeness of you and breathe life into it, thus creating man."

"Well, that's very Me."

So the scientist bends down to the earth and starts to mold the soil into the shape of a man.

"No, no, no..." interrupts God, "Get your own dirt."

Threatening Letters

The fellow stormed into the postmaster's office in a fury. "I've been getting threatening letters in the mail for months and I want them stopped."

Hungry Robins

Two robins were sitting in a tree. "I'm really hungry", said the first one. "

Me, too", said the second. "Let's fly down and find some lunch."

They flew to the ground and found a nice plot of plowed ground full of worms. They ate and ate and ate 'til they could eat no more.

"I'm so full I don't think I can fly back up to the tree," said the first one.

"Me neither, let's just lay here and bask in the warm sun", said the second.

"OK" said the first. They plopped down, basking in the sun. No sooner than they had fallen asleep, a big fat tomcat snuck up and gobbled them up.

As he sat washing his face after his meal, he thought, "I love baskin' robins."



As paramedics, my partner and I were dispatched to check on a
92-year-old man who had become disoriented. We decided to take him
to the hospital for evaluation.

Leaning close, I asked, "Sir, do you know what we're doing right

He slowly looked up at me, then gazed out the ambulance window.
"Oh," he replied, "I'd say about 50, maybe 55."


A pastor was doing his children's sermon bringing
all the youngsters down front to hear the lesson.
He was discussing the story of Jonah.

He began by quoting the scriptures from Jonah 1
and 2 "And the Lord appointed a great fish to
swallow up Jonah; and Jonah was in the belly of
the fish three days and three nights. Then Jonah
prayed to the Lord his God from the belly of the
fish, saying 'I called to the Lord out of my
distress and He answered me.' ... and the Lord
spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon
the dry land" (Jonah 117; 22, 10). When the
pastor finished the quotation, he began
soliciting feedback from the youngsters to help
him complete this sermon.

He asked, "What does the fish vomiting Jonah out
on dry land indicate to us today?"

One of the youngsters spoke with great
enthusiasm, and loud enough for the entire
congregation to hear, "It proves that even a fish
can't stomach a bad preacher!"


Doc Grimsby was an old time traveling medicine show man. He used to
sell his elixir from the back of a covered wagon at every town where
he stopped. Old Pap recollected when he stopped in his town years ago.

"Doc Grimsby got up on the back of his wagon and it didn't take no
time at all before he had him a crowd around him! He launched off
into his pretty as can be spiel and said that for only a single buck,
he'd sell us a potion that would guarantee us a long life! He even
said he took it himself, and was living proof of its effects on
aging. Fact, he told us that he was 149 years old."

"I smelled a rat, so I asked his assistant if the Doc really was 149.
The kid said he couldn't prove it since he'd only been working for
the guy barely more than a century!"

"Things Overheard on Noah's Ark"

6. "Help! I need some Pepto for the elephants, QUICK!"

5. "Don't Make Me Pull This Ark Over And Come Back There!"

4. "No Ham, you cannot eat the Pig!"

and her father asked her, "Sweetheart, what time did you

paper under the front tire of the car."

"And I," said the Jew, "want my ashes scattered over the grave of
Comrade Kosygin."

"But that's impossible," he was told. "Kosygin isn't dead yet."

"Fine," said the Jew. "I can wait."

Jill admitted to being a less than fastidious housekeeper. One
evening John returned home from work, walked into the kitchen and
said, "You know, dear, I can write my name in the dust on the mantel."

Jill turned to him and sweetly replied, "Yes, darling, that's why I
married a college graduate."


A little guy is sitting at the bar just staring at his drink for half an hour when this big trouble-making biker steps next to him, grabs his drink and gulps it down in one swig.

The poor little guy starts crying. "Come on man. I was just giving you a hard time," the biker says. "I can't stand to see a man crying."

"This is the worst day of my life," says the little guy between sobs. "I can't do anything right. I overslept and was late to an important meeting, so my boss fired me.

When I went to the parking lot, I found my car was stolen and I don't have any insurance.

I grabbed a cab home but, after the cab left, I discovered my wallet was still in the cab. At home I found my wife in bed with the gardener and my dog bit me.

So I came to this bar trying to work up the courage to put an end to my life, .and then you show up and drink the poison!"


Mrs. O'Donovan was walking down O'Connell Street in Dublin,

"Hello," said the Father, "And how is Mrs. O'Donovan, didn't
I marry you two years ago?"

"You did that, Father."

"And are there any little ones yet?"

"No, not yet, Father." Said she.

"Well now, I'm going to Rome next week, and I'll light a
candle for you."

"Thank-you, Father." And away she went.

A few years later they met again.

"Well now, Mrs. O'Donovan," said the Father, "how are you?"

"Oh, very well," said she.

"And tell me," he said, "have you any little ones yet?"

"Oh yes, Father. I've had three sets of twins, and four singles -

"Now isn't that wonderful," he said "And how is your lovely

"Oh," she said, "he's over in Rome to blow that bloody
candle out!"


Old Rev. Johnson was begging his board of directors to buy a new
chandelier for the church. Pleading for more than an hour, he sat down
sullen and hopeless in his ambition to acquire a chandelier. Then the
elder president of the board stood up. "What're we wasting time
talkin'for?" he said rhetorically. "Foist of all, a chandelier, ... we ain't

could even play it. And third, what we need most in the church is more

Lessons Learned By a Parent

3. A 3-year-old's voice is louder than 200 adults in a crowded restaurant.

4. If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is not strong enough to rotate a 42 pound boy wearing Batman underwear and a superman cape. It is strong enough, however, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20x20 foot room.

7. When you hear the toilet flush and the words "Uh-oh", it's already too late.

8. Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.

9. A six-year-old can start a fire with a flint rock, even though a 36-year-old man says they only do it in the movies. A magnifying glass can start a fire even on an overcast day.

Butt in the Star Trek Universe

10) In the Star Wars universe, weapons rarely, if ever, are set on

3) The Death Star doesn't care if a world is class "M" or not.

2) Darth Vader could choke the entire Borg empire with one glance.

Bonus Joke:
An archaeologist was digging in the Negev Desert in Israel
and came upon a casket containing a mummy. After examining
it, he called the curator of a prestigious natural-history
museum. "I've just discovered a 3,000 year-old mummy of a
man who died of heart failure!" the excited scientist exclaimed.

To which the curator replied, "Bring him in. We'll check it
out." A week later, the amazed curator called the archaeologist.

"You were right about the mummy's age and cause of death. How
in the world did you know?"

"Easy. There was a piece of paper in his hand that said,
'10,000 Shekels on Goliath'."
