Viagra Again

Mary asks her husband, John, if he’d like some breakfast: “Would you like bacon and eggs, perhaps? A slice of toast? Grapefruit and coffee to follow?”

He declines: “It’s this Viagra,” he says, “It’s really taken the edge off my appetite.”

At lunchtime, Mary asks if he would like something: “A bowl of homemade soup, homemade muffins or a cheese sandwich?”

He declines: “It’s this Viagra,” he says, “it’s really taken the edge off my appetite.”

Come dinnertime, she again asks John if he wants anything to eat. She’ll go to the store and buy him some food. Would he like maybe a steak and apple pie? Maybe he’d like a pizza microwaved or a tasty stir-fry that would only take a couple of minutes?

John declines: “It’s this Viagra,” he says, “It’s really taken the edge off my appetite.”

Exasperated, Mary gives him an elbow and says, “Would you mind letting me up? I’m starving!”

Some Advice For Men

A Friend of Mine sent this to me… I thought it was pretty good… Enjoy!

  1. If lifting the toilet seat is so exhausting, learn to aim better.
  2. Do not fool yourself into believing that combing your hair over makes you look less bald and does not make you an object of ridicule when we see you in the bar/street/office.
  3. Do not bother to search for the perfect present. We know your limitations and will settle for something we can return at a later date. And here’s a hint: exercise machines and cookware will not be met with anything other than hostility, even if we ask for them.
  4. Sometimes, we are not thinking about you. Get over it.
  5. Waiting on you hand and foot when you are ill is not a mark of how much we love you. If you are sick, go to the doctor. If you don’t want to go to the doctor, shut the hell up and get your own Kleenex.
  6. Anything you can do while drinking beer and smoking is not a sport and we will never think of it that way.
  7. You have enough ratty t-shirts. You do not use enough Speed Stick on the weekends.
  8. We cry. It’s genetic. Let it go.
  9. Your ex-girlfriend is a bitch. Comparisons are made at your own risk.
  10. Do not offer us unsolicited advice. If we want to be told how to do something, we will ask an expert. More than likely, this will not be you.
  11. Refusing to ask for directions when you are lost does not make you more of a man.
  12. Whenever possible, ask us for sex when the commercials start so that if we say “yes” we won’t miss anything.
  13. Do not give us the silent treatment. The things we will do to make you speak will annoy you far more than the five minutes you could have spent talking about the problem.
  14. Pot bellies are for pigs.
  15. Sometimes, we are thinking of Russell Crowe. Shut up and be thankful if this cures a 17 week headache.
  16. One speculum beats one “turn your head and cough” every time.
  17. It is not PMS. You are just annoying at exactly the wrong time. (That’s why PMS stands for Permanent Male Stupidity).
  18. If you can remember Hank Aaron’s batting average, you can remember our birthdays and anniversaries, so stop making excuses and get a PDA.
  19. If you stop complaining about the number of shoes we have and don’t wear, we’ll stop complaining about the number of tools you have and don’t use.
  20. It is 2005. We understand sports, computers and cars. We may not wish to spend countless hours playing and/or discussing any of them.
  21. Acting a little jealous is cute. Being maniacally possessive is a restraining order.

Twenty Ways To Confuse Trick-Or-Treaters

Somebody sent this to me via email, and I thought I’d post it here… enjoy!

  1. Give away something other than candy (Toothpicks, golf balls, bags of sand, etc.).
  2. Wait behind the door until some people come. When they get near the door, jump out, wearing a costume and holding a bag and yell, “Trick or Treat!” Look at them, scratch your head, and act confused.
  3. Fill a briefcase with marbles and crackers. Write on it, “Top Secret” in big letters. When trick-or-treaters come, look around suspiciously, say, “It’s about time you got here,” give them the briefcase, and quickly shut the door.
  4. Get about 30 people to wait in your living room. When trick-or-treaters come to the door, say, “Come in.” When they do, have everyone yell, “Surprise!!!” Act like it’s a surprise party.
  5. Get everyone who comes to the door to come in and see if they can figure out what’s wrong with your dishwasher. Insist that it makes an unnatural “whirring” sound.
  6. After you give them candy, hand the trick-or-treaters a bill.
  7. Open the door dressed as a giant fish. Immediately collapse, and don’t move or say anything until the trick-or-treaters go away.
  8. When you answer the door, hold up one candy bar, throw it out into the street, and yell, “Crawl for it!”
  9. When you answer the door, look at the trick-or-treaters, act shocked and scared, and start screaming your head off. Slam the door and run around the house, screaming until they go away.
  10. Insist that the trick-or-treaters each do ten push-ups before you give them any candy.
  11. Hand out menus to the trick-or-treaters and let them order their candy. Keep asking if anyone wants to see the wine list.
  12. Get a catapult. Sit on your porch and catapult pumpkins at anyone who comes within 50 yards of your house.
  13. When people come to the door, jump out a nearby window, crashing through the glass, and run as far away from your house as you can.
  14. Answer the door dressed as a pilgrim. Stare at the trick-or-treaters for a moment, pretend to be confused, and start flipping through a calendar.
  15. Instead of candy, give away colored eggs. If anyone protests, explain that the eggs are the only thing you had left over from Easter.
  16. Answer the door dressed as a dentist. Angrily give the trick-or-treaters a two-hour lecture on tooth decay.
  17. Answer the door with a mouthful of M & M’s and several half-eaten candy bars in your hands. Act surprised, and close the door. Open it again in a few seconds, and insist that you don’t have any candy.
  18. Hand out cigarettes and bottles of aspirin.
  19. Put a crown on a pumpkin and put the pumpkin on a throne on your porch. Insist that all of the trick-or-treaters bow before the pumpkin
  20. Dress up like a bunny rabbit. Yell and curse from the moment you open the door, and angrily throw the candy at the trick-or-treaters. Slam the door when you’re finished.

Women’s Perfect Breakfast

A woman’s perfect breakfast: She’s sitting at the table with her gourmet coffee. Her son is on the cover of the Wheaties box. Her daughter is on the cover of Business Week. Her boyfriend is on the cover of Playgirl. And, her husband is on the back of the milk carton.

Women’s Revenge

“Cash, check or charge?” I asked, after folding items the woman wished to purchase. As she fumbled for her wallet I noticed a remote control for a television set in her purse.

“So, do you always carry your TV remote?” I asked.

“No,” she replied, “but my husband refused to come shopping with me, so I figured this was the most legal evil thing I could do to him.”

Understanding Women

I know I’m not going to understand women. I’ll never understand how you can take boiling hot wax, pour it onto your upper thigh, rip the hair out by the root, and still be afraid of a spider.

Sectional, Schmectional

An elderly woman entered a large furniture store and was greeted by a much younger salesman.

“Is there something in particular I can show you?” he asked.

“Yes, I want to buy a sexual sofa.”

“You mean a sectional sofa,” he suggested.

“Sectional, schmectional,” she bitterly retorted. “All I want is an occasional piece in the living room!”

Hey! Wait a Minute…

I said to my wife, “Guess what I heard in the pub? They reckon the milkman has made love to every woman in our street except one.”

She replied, “I’ll bet it’s that stuck-up Phyllis in apartment 23.”

No Cabbage For You

Two elderly ladies meet at the laundromat after not seeing one another for some time. After inquiring about each other’s health one asked how the other’s husband was doing.

“Oh! Harold died last week. He went out to the garden to dig up a cabbage for dinner, had a heart attack and dropped down dead, right there in the middle of the vegetable patch!”

“Oh dear! I’m very sorry,” replied her friend. “What did you do?”

“Well, I opened a can of peas instead!”
