And gazed at the fridge full of goodies galore.
I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.
I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,

With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie,
But I managed to yell as I soared past the trees ... Happy
eating to all! (Pass the cranberries, please)

Well now, you see it's like this....
A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest
buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the
rear that are killed. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole
because only the fittest survive thus improving the general health and speed of
the entire herd.
In much the same way the human brain only operates as
quickly as the slowest of it's brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol kills
brain cells, as we all know, and naturally the alcohol attacks the slowest/weakest
So it is as plain as the nose on your face that regular
consumption of Guinness will eliminate the weaker, slower brain cells thus
leaving the remaining cells the best in the brain.
The end result, of course, is a faster more efficient

battery to this remote door unlocker. Now I can't get into my car.

"Do you have an alarm too?" I asked.
"No, just this remote thingy," she answered,
handing it and the car keys to me.

replied, "Why don't you drive over there and check about the batteries.

"Oh, no," replied Mrs. O'Connor. "Sure now,
we only have a carport."
The solicitor tried again. "Well, does the man beat
"No, no," said Mrs. O'Connor, looking puzzled.
"I'm always first out of bed."
Still hopeful, the solicitor tried once again. "Well,
does he go in for unnatural connubial practices?"
"Sure now, he plays the flute, but I don't think he
knows anything about the connubial."
Now desperate, the solicitor pushed on. "What I'm
trying to find out are what grounds you have."
"Bless you, sir. We live in a flat -- not even a
window box, let alone grounds."
"Mrs. O'Connor," the solicitor said in
considerable exasperation, "you need a reason that the court can consider.
What is the reason for you seeking this divorce?"

One Way Trip to Mars

how much he wanted to be paid for going. "One million dollars," the
engineer answered. "And I want to donate it all to my alma mater--Rice University."

him the same question. "Two millions dollars," the doctor said.
"I want to give a million to my family and leave the other million for the
advancement of medical research."
The last applicant was a lawyer. When asked how much money
he wanted, he whispered in the interviewer's ear, "Three million
"Why so much more than the others?" the

A Dollar Per Point
A professor was giving a big test one day to his students.
He handed out all of the tests and went back to his desk to wait.
Once the test was over the students all handed the tests
back in. The professor noticed that one of the students had attached a $100

out. This student got back his test, his test grade, and $64 change.
