The goal here is to provide clean humor for you. As most humor goes, someone has to be the object of the joke. Try not to take it personally if you are a blond, Aggie, lawyer, banker, preacher, businessman (or woman), Russian, American, Christian, atheist or a member of any other "target group". I will try to be sensitive, however, being offended or not being offended is your choice.
"Great peace have they which love thy law, and nothing shall offend them." --Ps. cxix. 165.

SOME OF MY FAVORITES
( these will change periodically as new material comes my way )
A football coach had a star quarterback who was as dumb as a post.
The only way the kid could stay on the team would be to pass all
his classes, which was impossible. All his teachers agreed to go
easy on him except for one, his math teacher. The coach begged
the math teacher to not fail the kid. The math teacher agreed to give
the boy an oral exam which, if he passed, would count for class
credit. The coach came to the exam to support his star athlete.
The math teacher asked only one question for the exam:
"What is two plus two?"
"Four," the athlete answered.
The football coach went into a panic and yelled, "Give him another chance! Please, just one more chance!" (Sports Illustrated)
A little girl was in church with her mother when she started
feeling ill."Mommy," she said, "can we leave now?"
"No" her mother replied.
"Well, I think I have to throw up!"
"Then go out the front door and around to the back of the church
and throw up behind a bush."
After about 60 seconds the little girl returned to her seat.
"Did you throw up?" Mom asked.
"How could you have gone all the way to the back of the
church and returned
"I didn't have to go out of the church, Mommy.
They have a box next to the
front door that says, 'For the Sick'."
TV is called a medium because it is neither rare nor well done.
A policeman spots a woman driving and knitting at the same time.

Two men are driving on a highway. They switch on the
radio and hear a warning: "Please be aware that a car

The man in the passenger seat turns to the driver and says:

Q. Is ignorance or apathy the biggest problem today?
A. I don't know and I don't care.
A less than bright man inquired of his friend about an item
he was carrying. "It's a Thermos," said the friend.
"What does it do?" said the man. "Well," said the friend,
"it keeps hot things hot and cold things cold." The next day
the friend noticed that the man had purchased a Thermos.
"What do you have in it," said the friend. The man proudly
responded, "Two cups of coffee and a Popsicle."
If it weren't for electricity we'd all be watching
television by candlelight. -- George Gobel
An Amish boy and his father were visitng a mall. They were
amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by
two, shiny, silver walls that could move apart and back
The boy asked his father, "What is this ?"
The father (having never seen an elevator) responded,
"Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life,
I don't know what it is".
While the boy and his father were
watching, wide-eyed, an old grey haired lady shuffled up to
the moving walls and pressed a button. The walls opened
and the lady shuffled between them and into a small room.
The walls closed and the boy and his father watched small
circles of light with numbers above them all light up.
They continued to watch the circles light up in the reverse
direction. The walls opened up again, and a beautiful ,well
developed young blond lady stepped out. The father said
to his son, "Hurry, go get your mother!"
Lexicon of Inconspicuously Ambiguous Recommendations
(Ways to handle those tricky situations!)
How would you interpet this statement concerning an extremely
lazy person ? "In my opinion, you will be very fortunate to get
this person to work for you."
This gem of double meaning is the creation of Robert Thornton,
a professor of economics at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, PA.
Thornton was frustrated about an occupational hazard for
teachers, having to write letters of recommendation for people
with dubious qualifications, so he put together an arsenal of
statements that can be read two ways. He calls his collection
the Lexicon of Inconspicuously Ambiguous Recommendations.
Or LIAR, for short. LIAR may be used to offer a negative opinion
of the personal qualities, work habits or motivation of the
candidate while allowing the candidate to believe that it is high praise.
Thornton explained last week. Some examples from LIAR:
- To describe a person who is totally inept: "I most enthusiastically recommend this candidate with no qualifications whatsoever."
- To describe an ex-employee who had problems getting along with fellow workers: "I am pleased to say that this candidate is a former colleague of mine."
- To describe a candidate who is so unproductive that the job would
be better left unfilled: "I can assure you that no person would be better for the job."
- To describe a job applicant who is not worth further consideration:
"I would urge you to waste no time in making this candidate an offer of employment."
- To describe a person with lackluster credentials: "All in all, I cannot say enough good things about this candidate or recommend him too highly."
Thornton pointed out that LIAR is not only useful in preserving
friendships, but it also can help avoid serious legal trouble in a
time when laws have eroded the confidentiality of letters of
recommendation. In most states, he noted, job applicants have the
right to read the letters of recommendations and can even file suit
against the writer if the contents are negative. When the writer uses
LIAR, however, whether perceived correctly or not by the
candidate, the phrases are virtually litigation-proof, Thornton said.
So there's this blonde out for a walk. She comes to a river and sees
another blonde on the opposite bank."Yoohoo" she shouts,"how
can I get to the other side?"The second blonde looks up the river
then down the river then shoutsback, "You are on the other side."

A woman and her husband interupted their vacation to go to a
dentist. "I want a tooth pulled, and I don't want Novocain because I'm in a big hurry," the woman said. "Just extract the tooth as quickly as
possible, and we'll be on our way."
The dentist was quite impressed. "You're certainly a courageous woman," he said. "Which tooth is it?"
The woman turned to her husband and said,"Show him your tooth, dear."
