Menopause Jewelry

My husband, unhappy with my mood swings, bought me a mood ring the other day so he would be able to monitor my emotions.

We've discovered that when I'm in a good mood, it turns green. When I'm in a bad mood, it leaves a big fu*king red mark on his forehead

Maybe next time he'll buy me a diamond.

I've sure gotten old. I've had two bypass surgeries, a hip replacement, new knees. Fought prostate cancer and diabetes. I'm half blind, can't hear anything quieter than a jet engine, take 40 different medications that make me dizzy, winded, and subject to blackouts. Have bouts with dementia. Have poor circulation. Hardly feel my hands and feet anymore. Can't remember if I'm 85 or 92. Have lost all my friends. But, thank God, I still have my driver's license.

BUSH'S NEXT MAJOR ADDRESS TO BE SIMULCAST IN ENGLISH

President Hopes to Reach Broader Audience, Aides Say

For the first time since he was elected President of the United States, George W. Bush's next prime-time speech will be simulcast in English, the White House confirmed.

With the president's approval ratings sagging, the decision to simulcast the speech in English was widely seen as an attempt by the president to make an appeal to a broader audience.

"The majority of people in this country are English-speaking, and quite frankly, we can't afford to ignore them any longer," one senior aide said. "Hopefully, by doing the English simulcast, we'll be reaching out to a lot of those folks."

Now that the decision has been made, next will come the hard work of translating the text of the address from Mr. Bush's language into English.

Davis Logsdon, a professor of linguistics at the University of Minnesota, was one of several scholars approached to do the translation who ultimately quit in frustration.

"The problem is that the language the president speaks, by most measures, is not a language at all," Logsdon said.

Rodney Lives!

I was so poor growing up. If I wasn't a boy, I'd have had nothing to play with.

A girl phoned me the other day and said, "Come on over; nobody's home." I went over. Nobody was home.

It's been a rough day. I got up this morning put a shirt on and a button fell off. I picked up my briefcase, and the handle came off. Now I'm afraid to go to the bathroom.

My wife told me we needed to cut back on expenses, so I had to give up drinking beer. I was not a big drinker, maybe a 12-pack on weekends. Anyway, I gave it up.

Then I noticed the other day she came home from grocery shopping with a receipt that showed $45 for makeup. "Wait a minute," I said. "I've given up beer and you haven't given up anything!"

She said, "I buy that makeup for you, so I can look pretty for you." I told her, "Hell, that's what the beer was for!"

I don't think she'll be back.

The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert. After they got their tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep. Some hours later, Tonto woke up the Lone Ranger and said, "Kemo Sabe, look towards sky. What you see?"

"I see millions of stars."

"What that tell you?"

The Lone Ranger pondered for a minute then said, "Astronomically, It tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo. Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three in the morning. Theologically, it's evident the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What's it tell you, Tonto?"

Tonto was silent for a moment, then said, "Kemo Sabe, you dumber than buffalo sh*t. Somebody stole tent."

"Beertits.”

An older gentleman was on the operating table awaiting surgery. He had insisted that his son, a renowned surgeon, perform the operation. As he was about to receive anesthesia, he asked to speak to his son.

By Sheila Morris

On Saturday my Jake and Addy (ages 8 and 6) were eating breakfast, when Jake said he needed a "freaking" something or other. That word is everywhere now, including TV and some cartoons. But I just don’t think it’s right for Jake to use it, and I told him so.

Jake immediately replied, "Daddy says it."

I said we needed to tell Daddy not to say it, either (even if he is saying "freaking" instead of something far worse). Then Addy chimed in and brought the matter to closure.

"Okay, next time Daddy gets pissed, we'll tell him not to say freaking!"

Two elderly women met for the first time since graduating from high school. One asked the other, "You were always so organized in school. Did you manage to live a well planned life?"

"What do those marriages have to do with a well planned life?"

Her friend began snapping her fingers. "One for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, and four to go."

It was entertainment night at the senior center and the Amazing Claude was topping the bill. Unlike most hypnotists who select two or three subjects to be put into a trance, Claude specialized in hypnotizing everyone in the room.

The excitement was almost electric as Claude withdrew a beautiful antique pocket watch from his coat. He began to swing the watch gently back and forth, back and forth while quietly chanting, "Follow the watch, follow the watch, follow the watch...”

The crowd became mesmerized as the watch swayed back and forth, light gleaming off its polished surface. Suddenly, it slipped from the hypnotist's fingers and fell to the floor, breaking into a hundred pieces.

"Sh*t!" said the hypnotist.

It took janitors three days to clean up the place.

Crimestopper Alert

Be careful. I am a victim of the latest scam which is happening in shopping mall parking lots all over Colorado.

Two good looking young women come to your car as you are parking. One starts wiping your windshield with a rag and the other comes to your window and bends over so far her breasts just about fall out of her blouse.

While you're distracted, the other one lets herself in the back seat. Then both are begging you for a ride home. Be very wary, because as soon as you start driving, one of them will take off her shirt and rub her breasts on you while the other climbs over the seat and unzips your pants. This is when they steal your wallet.

I was robbed last Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. I couldn't find them on Saturday.

Bill Maher’s New Rules, 3/31/06 on HBO’s Real Time

New Rule: People who run everything can't complain that they're underdogs. To wit, this week, there was a highly-attended conference in Washington called "The War on Christians." Because nothing quite says "I'm oppressed," like the opulent Regency Ballroom of the Omni Shoreham Hotel.

Ah, yes, whatever happened to that plucky little cult, Christianity? Oh, that's right, they're 80% of the American people, and have taken over all three branches of government, country music, public schools, the bestseller list, and until recently, Katie Holmes. You know, Christians, I don't mind that you're part of a dress-up cult that hates sex and worships magic but the paranoia, that does scare me.

Did you know that the Missouri legislature recently felt the need to propose a resolution declaring Christianity Missouri's majority religion?. No kidding. Really, you mean people are saying, "Gosh, I'd like to go to Missouri, but...too Jewish." In Savannah recently, a children's book about a baby penguin who is raised by two male penguins - ahh! - was removed from the library for its homosexual overtones. Because you know penguins, in those tuxedos, with the dreamy eyes. Huge fags!

The Christian right are now officially the party of paranoia. Secularists are attacking Christmas! Gays are attacking marriage! Liberals are attacking values! White girls are being abducted at an alarming rate! You know, if you're going to be that paranoid all the time, just get high.

And the worst part is, the people bitching loudest about being persecuted for their Christianity aren't Christians at all. They're demagogues and conmen and scolds. And the only thing they worship is power. If you believe Jesus ever had a good word for war or torture or tax cuts for the rich, or raping the earth, or refusing water to dying migrants, then you might as well believe bunnies lay painted eggs.

And Jesus - and Jesus never said a word about gay marriage. He was much too busy hanging out with 12 guys. Now - now I know George Bush says Jesus Christ changed his heart. But believe me, Dick Cheney changed it back. The only thing Bush has in common with Jesus is they both went into their father's business and got crucified for it.

Thomas Jefferson called the type of Christian who trumpets his own belief in the divinity of Jesus rather than the morality of Jesus "pseudo-Christians." And that's who's running our country today. And since they thrive so much on turning water into "whining"—and get off on their endless pretend persecution, this Easter season, let's give them what they want. Let's go to the zoo, get some lions, and feed them Tom DeLay.

Bud and Jim were a couple of drinking buddies who worked as airplane mechanics in Atlanta. One day the airport was fogged in, and they were stuck in the hangar with nothing to do.

Bud said, “Y'know, I've heard you can drink jet fuel and get a buzz. Wanna try it?"

The boys poured themselves a couple of glasses of high octane and got quite wasted. The next morning, Bud woke up and was surprised by how good he felt. No hangover, no side effects...nothing.

Then the phone rang. “It's Jim. Hey, how do you feel this morning? Yeah? I feel great too.” Bud said, “That jet fuel is great stuff. We ought to do this more often."

Jim said, "Yeah, well, there's just one thing...have you farted yet?" Bud said he hadn’t.

A man isn’t complete until he’s married. And then he’s finished.

By Ed Uthman

In "Dubya's Brain" in Politics, Joe McQuade wrote, “Fifty years from now, the most enduring mysteries about American culture in our lifetime will be 1) How Willie Nelson became a musical superstar, and, 2) How George Bush was allowed to inhabit the Oval Office for two terms.”

To this list I would add 3) How anyone ever thought breast implants make women more attractive.

A young boy enters a barber shop, and the barber whispers to his customer, “This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you."

The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks which he wants. The boy takes the two quarters and leaves.

“What did I tell you?” the barber says. “The kid never learns.”

Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the young boy coming out of the ice cream store. "Hey, son! Why did you take the quarters instead of the bill?"

The boy licks his cone and says, "Because the day I take the dollar, the game's over."

Should children witness childbirth?

Due to a power outage, only one paramedic responded to the maternity call. The house was very dark, so the paramedic asked Kathleen, a three-year-old girl, to hold a flashlight high over her mommy so he could see while he helped deliver the baby. Very diligently, Kathleen did as she was asked.

Heidi pushed and pushed and after a little while, Connor was born. The paramedic lifted him by his little feet and tapped him on his bottom. Connor began to cry.

The paramedic then thanked Kathleen for her help and asked the wide-eyed child what she thought about what she had just witnessed.

Kathleen quickly responded, "Smack his as* again! He shouldn't have crawled in there in the first place!”

On their wedding night, the young bride approached her new husband and asked for twenty dollars for their first lovemaking encounter. In his highly aroused state, her husband readily agreed.

This practice was repeated each time they made love, for more than 30 years, with him thinking it was a cute way for her to afford new clothes and other incidentals that she needed.

Arriving home around noon one day, she was surprised to find her husband in a very drunken state. During the next few minutes, he explained that his employer was downsizing and he had been let go. It was unlikely that, at 59, he'd be able to find another position that paid anywhere near what he'd been earning, and therefore, they were financially ruined.

Calmly, his wife handed him a bank book which showed more than thirty years of steady deposits and interest totaling nearly $1 million. Then she showed him certificates of deposits issued by the bank which were worth over $2 million and informed him that they were one of the largest depositors in the bank. She explained that for the more than three decades she had "charged" him for sex, she had secured their financial future.

“Three million dollars!” her dazed husband blurted. “If I'd had any idea what you were doing, I would have given YOU all my business!"

That's when she shot him.

Now, we have a nice house, nice car, big bed and plasma TV, but I'm sleeping with a 50 year old woman. It seems to me that you are not holding up your side of things."

My wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and find a hot 25 year old blonde, and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap apartment, driving a cheap car, and sleeping on a sofa bed.

A guy goes to the U.S. Post Office to apply for a job. The interviewer asks, "Have you been in the service?"

"Yes. I was in Vietnam for three years."

“That will give you extra points toward employment. Are you disabled in any way?"

"Yes, 100 percent. A mortar round exploded near me and blew my testicles off."

The interviewer says, “O.K., I can hire you right now. The hours are from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. You can start tomorrow at 10 a.m.”

“I’m confused,” the guy says. “If the hours are from 8 to 4, why do you want me to come in at 10?"

His mind travels back to the only time he has ever been unfaithful to his wife, and he blurts, "My God, are you the stripper from my bachelor party?” He finds himself getting irritated. “My God, 15 of us must have taken turns with you.”

"Oh no," I said. "I don't do drugs, either."

"Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?"

"No, all red meat is unhealthy!"

"Do you spend a lot of time in the sun playing golf, sailing, hiking, bicycling?"

"No, I don't."

"Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?"

Little Johnny said he understood completely.

When Johnny looked into the crib, he said, "What a beautiful baby!"

The mother said, "Why, thank you, Little Johnny."

Johnny said, "He has beautiful little feet and beautiful little hands, a cute little nose and really beautiful eyes. By the way, can he see?"

"Yes", the mother replied, "We are so thankful; the doctor said he will have perfect vision"

Most people don't know that in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was manufactured in England. In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery to Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York. This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise ever delivered to Mexico.

As we know, the great ship did not make it to New York. The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost. The people of Mexico, craving mayonnaise and eagerly awaiting its delivery, were disconsolate following the loss. Their anguish was so profound, they declared a national day of mourning, which is still observed to this day.

Every May 5 is known, of course, as...

Sinko de Mayo.

A back-woods church in Georgia had a new and very big-busted organist. Her breasts were so huge that they bounced and jiggled while she played, which distracted the congregation considerably.

The church ladies were appalled. One of the ladies approached the organist very discreetly, suggesting that if she mashed up some green persimmons and rubbed them on her breasts, they might shrink. But she warned her not to eat any of the green persimmons because they are devilishly sour.

The organist agreed to try. The following Sunday morning the minister took to the pulpit and said:

"Dew to thircumsthanthis beyond my contwol, we will not have a thermon tewday."

A defendant was on trial for murder. There was strong evidence indicating guilt, but there was no corpse. In the defense's closing statement the lawyer, knowing that his client would probably be convicted, resorted to a trick.

"Ladies and gentlemen, I have a surprise for you all," the lawyer said as he looked at his watch. "Within one minute, the person presumed dead in this case will walk into this courtroom."

He looked toward the courtroom door. The jurors, somewhat stunned, all looked on eagerly. A minute passed. Nothing happened.

Finally the lawyer said, "Actually, I made up the previous statement. But you all looked on with anticipation. I therefore put it to you that you have a reasonable doubt in this case as to whether anyone was killed, and I insist that you return a verdict of not guilty."

The jury, clearly confused, retired to deliberate. A few minutes later, the jury returned and pronounced a verdict of guilty.

"But how?" inquired the lawyer. "You must have had some doubt; I saw all of you stare at the door."

The jury foreman replied: "Yes, we did look. But your client didn't."

A father passing by his son's bedroom was astonished to see the bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then he saw an envelope propped up prominently on the pillow. With the worst premonition, he opened the envelope and read the letter with trembling hands:

Dear Dad,

It is with great regret and sorrow that I'm writing this. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you. I've been finding real passion with Barbara, and she is so nice even with all her piercing, tattoos, and her tight motorcycle clothes. But it's not only the passion; Dad, she's pregnant and she assures me that we will be very happy, even though you don't care for her since she is so much older than I am. She already owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood enough for the whole winter. She wants to have many more children with me and that's now one of my dreams, too. Barbara taught me that marijuana doesn't really hurt anyone, and we'll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with her friends for all the cocaine and ecstasy we need. In the meantime, we pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so that Barbara can get better; she deserves it! Don't worry, Dad, I'm 15 years old now and I know how to take care of myself. Someday I'm sure we'll be back to visit so you can get to know your grandchildren.

Your son,

John

P.S. Dad, none of this is true. I'm over at Billy's house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than my report card, which is in my desk drawer. I love you!

P.P.S. Call me when it's safe to come home.

Tommy, who had just opened his book, closed it slowly, and said, "What would you like to discuss?"

“Oh, I don't know," said the president. "How about nuclear power in Korea and Iran?"

OK," said Tommy. "That could be an interesting topic. But let me ask you a question first. A horse, a cow, and a deer all eat grass.-- the same stuff. Yet a deer excretes little pellets, while a cow turns out a flat patty, and a horse produces clumps. Why do you suppose that is?"

“Gosh,” Bush said. "I have no idea."

Well, then," said Little Tommy, "How is it that you feel qualified to discuss nuclear power when you don't know sh*t?"

Wine and Water

In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink one liter of water each day, at the end of the year we will have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E. coli) bacteria found in feces. In other words, we are consuming 1 kilo of poop.

However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine (or rum, whiskey or other liquor) because booze has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting.

Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid than to drink water and be full of sh*t.

Terror Alert Levels in Europe

The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent terrorist threats and have raised their security level from "Miffed" to Peeved." Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross."

Londoners have not been "A Bit Cross" since the Blitz in 1940, when tea supplies all but ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to a "Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was during the great fire of 1666.

Also, the French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide."

The only two higher levels in France are "Surrender" and "Collaborate."

The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France's white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country's military capability.

It's not only the English and French that are on a heightened level of alert. Italy has increased the alert level from "Shout Loudly and Excitedly" to "Elaborate Military Posturing."

Two more levels remain: "Ineffective Combat Operations" and "Change Sides."

The Germans also increased their alert state from "Disdainful Arrogance" to "Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs."

They also have two higher levels: "Invade a Neighbor" and "Lose."

Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual, and the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels .

The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.

Terror Alert Levels for Liberals

Level One – “these bombings may serve to validate the conservative causes”

Level Two – “these bombing may serve to introduce raw undesirable facts of life into my fairy land world view”

Level Three – “these bombings may make me just as vulnerable to discomfort as those poor saps in the lower classes”

Level Four – “Oh, my God… I might be wrong ….”

Level Five – “Where are my second amendment rights? Somebody get me a gun, an assault rifle, a slingshot… anything”

Level Six – “Who is responsible for the inadequate military defense? The lack of manpower? Why don’t we have a stronger police? Where is the FBI? Will somebody, somewhere get these guys out of my back yard?”

Level Seven – BOOM!!! Um… Um… who is that big guy in the white robes, sitting on that throne??? Um…. Why am I standing in line to face Him??? Um…. Why do I have this sinking feeling that I am not going to enjoy this????

Level Infinity -- “I am going to spend eternity WHERE?”

Henny Lives!

Noah Webster’s wife, returning from a long trip, discovered the lexicographer “in flagrante delicto” with a pretty chambermaid.

“Mr. Webster,” she gasped, “I am surprised!”

An elderly man in North Carolina had owned a large farm for many years. He had a nice pond in the back along with some picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some apple and peach trees.

One evening the old farmer ambled down to the pond with a five gallon bucket to bring back some fruit. Soon he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. Coming closer, he saw several young women skinny-dipping in his pond. When they saw him, they all dipped down to conceal themselves.

One of the women shouted, "We're not coming out until you leave!" The old man frowned and replied, "I didn't come down here to see you ladies naked.” Holding the bucket up he said, "I'm here to feed the alligator."

Moral of the story: Old men may move slowly, but they can still think fast.

The main accomplishment of almost all organized protests is to annoy people who are not in them.

Laura Bush bought George a parrot for his birthday. She said to Dick Cheney, "That bird is so smart! George has taught him over 200 words!"

"That's pretty impressive, if you will," Cheney said. "But you do realize, don't you, that he's just saying the words? He doesn't really understand what they mean."

That's okay," Laura replied. "Neither does the parrot."
