A lawyer married a woman who had previously divorced ten husbands.

On their wedding night, she told her new husband, “Please be gentle, I’m still a virgin.”

“What?” said the puzzled groom.

“How can that be if you’ve been married ten times?”

“Well, Husband #1 was a sales representative: he kept telling me how great it was going to be.

Husband #2 was in software services: he was never really sure how it was supposed to function, but he said he’d look into it and get back to me.

Husband #3 was from field services: he said everything checked out diagnostically but he just couldn’t get the system up.

Husband #4 was in telemarketing: even though he knew he had the order, he didn’t know when he would be able to deliver.

Husband #5 was an engineer: he understood the basic process but wanted three years to research, implement, and design a new state-of-the-art method.

Husband #6 was from finance and administration: he thought he knew how, but he wasn’t sure whether it was his job or not.

Husband #7 was in marketing: although he had a nice product, he was never sure how to position it.

Husband #8 was a psychologist: all he ever did was talk about it.

Husband #9 was a gynecologist: all he did was look at it.

Husband #10 was a stamp collector: all he ever did was… God! I miss him! But now that I’ve married you, I’m really excited!”

“Good,” said the new husband, “but, why?”

“You’re a lawyer. This time I know I’m gonna get screwed!”

Q: How many Methodists does it take to change a light bulb?
A: We choose not to make a statement of either in favour of or against the need for a light bulb however, if in your own journey you have found that a light bulb works for you, that is fine. You are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your personal relationship to your light bulb and present it next month at our annual light bulb Sunday service, in which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions, including incandescent, fluorescent, three-way,long-lived, and tinted; all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence through Jesus Christ.

Here’s a few from the February version of this question
A Buddhist walks up to a hot dog vendor and says make me one with everything. (from Zen, of course)

Mat74UK found this one funny: A motorist stopped at a country ford and asked an Irishman sitting nearby how deep the water was. “A couple of inches.” replied the Irishman.

So the motorist drove into the ford and his car promptly disappeared beneath the surface in a cauldron of bubbles.

“That’s odd” thought the Irishman. “The water only goes halfway up on them ducks.”

and Grumpyfish gave up this one: Duck walks into a bar, looks up at the bartender and says “Got any grapes?”

Grumpy Bartender says “We don’t serve your kind, and I don’t have any grapes, get out of here!” And the duck leaves.

Duck walks in the next day says “Got any grapes?”

Bartender, more frustrated says “No, I don’t have any grapes. If I see you again I’m going to nail your feet to the floor!” Duck ruffles feathers and walks out.

Duck wanders in the next day, a little nervous says “Hey Barkeep, got any nails?” Bartender says “Uh, no…” Duck replies “Got any grapes?”

One day, little Timmy was looking out his bedroom window, looking out over the neighborhood wondering what he’s going to do with his life when suddenly Mrs. Thompson’s house across the street bursts into flames.

As little Timmy stares on in horror, two fire trucks come up with their sirens wailing. The firefighters pour out of the fire trucks working to put out the fire and to rescue any survivors.

To little Timmy’s amazement, the firefighters are able to rescue Mrs. Thompson and her little pet dog and put out the fire in almost no time, suddenly little Timmy realizes what he wants to do with his life, when he grows up, he’s going to be a firefighter!

Ecstatic with this realization, little Timmy runs to the kitchen where his mother is reading the newspaper, overflowing with joy, little Timmy says, “Mommy, Mommy! I know what I want to do with my life, when I grow up, I’m gonna be a fireman!”

Little Timmy’s mother lets out a sigh, folds the newspaper back up, sets it down, looks at little Timmy and says, “Timmy, you’re not going to grow up, you have AIDS.”

A rabbit is running through the woods and comes across a racoon about to smoke some pot. The rabbit runs up to the racoon and says “Don’t do that! come run through the woods with me. I’ts much more fun!” OK the racoon thought I’ll give it a shot and ran with the rabbit.

As they where running they came upon a deer who was about to snort some coke. The rabbit runs up to the deer and says “Don’t do that! come run through the woods with me. I’ts much more fun!” OK the deer thought and followed the racoon and rabbit.

As they where running they came upon a lion who was tying off. The rabbit runs up to the lion and just as he’s about to speak the lion punches him in the face and sends him flying across the forest. “what did you do that for?” said the racoon.

He replied “Every time that fucking rabbit takes ecstasy he wants everybody to run through the woods with him.”

Doctors say you can avoid the flu with plenty of exercise, fresh fruits and veggies, plenty of fresh air, stress elimination and plenty of rest. Doctors also swab you with alcohol before they give you a shot. Know why? Because alcohol kills germs.

So… I take the doctors’ approach to staying healthy:
I walk to the bar (exercise)
I put lime in my Corona (fruit)
I put celery in my Bloody Mary (veggies)
I sit out on the patio while I drink (fresh air)
I tell silly jokes and laugh (stress elimination)
Then I pass out (rest)

The way I see it, if you keep your alcohol levels up, the flu can’t get you!
Better a shot in a glass than a shot in the ass!
