   Escaped commieny  Tyrone
was having trouble in school; his teacher was always yelling at him, "You're driving
me crazy, Tyrone; can't you learn anything?
One day Tyrone's mother came to school to see how he was doing. The teacher told her honestly that her son was simply a disaster, getting very low marks,and that
she had never had such an unmotivated and ignorant boy in her entire teaching career. Tyrone’s mom, shocked at the feedback, withdrew her son from school and moved out of Detroit, relocating to Cleveland.
25 years later, the teacher was diagnosed with irreversible cardiac disease
Her doctors all strongly advised her to have open heart surgery, which only one
surgeon at the Cleveland Clinic could perform.
Left with no other options, the teacher decided to have the operation, which was
remarkably successful. When she opened her eyes after the surgery she saw the
handsome young doctor who headed her surgical team smiling down at her.

She wanted to thank him,but could not talk. Her face started to turn blue, she raised
her hand, trying to tell him something, but quickly died.
The doctor was shocked, wondering what went wrong so suddenly. When the doctor
turned around to leave the room, he saw Tyrone, now a janitor at the Clinic,had
unplugged the life-support equipment in order to plug in his vacuum cleaner

If you thought that Tyrone had become a heart-surgeon, there
is a high likelihood that you voted for

   Mike PHX  Two pieces of string are walking down the street and come across a bar: "No Strings Allowed!"
Of course the strings are offended, but they go in anyway. The bartender says, "Hey! No strings! Get outta here!"
Outside, the strings are dejected, but one says, "Hold on"
He ties a big knot out of his top, then starts fraying the loose ends. When he's done he walks back in the bar.
The bartender says, "Hey! No string allowed! Youre string, aren't you?"
The string replies, "I'm afraid not."

   GO3  A duck walks into Walgreen's and waddles all the way back to the pharmacist. The druggist looks down at him and says, "May I help you?"
"I'd like some chap stick, please."
The druggist puts the chap stick on the counter and asks, "Will that be cash?"
"No, just put it on my bill."

   Escaped commieny  An Engineer dies... and goes to Hell. Dissatisfied with the level of comfort, he starts designing and building improvements. After a while Hell has air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators. The engineer is a pretty popular guy.

One day God calls and asks Satan, "So, how's it going down there?" Satan says, "Hey things are going great. We've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and there's no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next.”

God is horrified. "What? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake - he should never have gone down there! You know all engineers go to Heaven. Send him up here! “

Satan says, "No way. I like having an engineer on the staff. I'm keeping him.”

God says, "Send him back up here or I'll sue.”

"Yeah, right," Satan laughs, "and where are you going to get a lawyer?"

   Calvinesq  Golf and Romance

Ed and Nancy met while on a singles cruise.

When they discovered they lived in the same city only a few miles apart Ed was ecstatic.
He immediately started asking her out when they got home and within a couple of weeks, Ed had taken Nancy to dance clubs, restaurants, concerts, movies, and museums.

Ed became convinced that Nancy was indeed his soul mate and true love. Every date seemed better than the last.

On the one-month anniversary of their first dinner on the cruise ship, Ed took Nancy to a fine restaurant and while having cocktails and waiting for their salad, Ed said, "I guess you can tell I'm very much in love with you and I'd like a little serious talk before our relationship continues to the next stage.

So, before I get a box out of my jacket and ask you a life changing question, it's only fair to warn you, I'm a total golf nut. I play golf, I read about golf, I watch golf on TV. In short, I eat, sleep, and breathe golf.

If that's going to be a problem for us, you'd better say so now!"

Nancy took a deep breath and responded, "Ed, that certainly won't be a problem. I love you as you are and I love golf too; but, since we're being totally honest with each other, you need to know that for the last five years I've been a hooker."

Ed said, "I bet it's because you're not keeping your wrists straight when you hit the ball."

   Mike PHX  Wow. That is the most unfunny, unwitty, unworthy of repeating, "joke" I've ever heard.
Was that the joke?

   WAN2  A Baptist minister and a Unitarian minister were flying to a multifaith convention together. The Unitarian was very nervous and confided to the Baptist that this was the first time he had ever flown and was very scared. The Baptist said that there was nothing to it — "Just sit next to me and I will help you." The Baptist showed him how to put on his seat belt and adjust the air vents. Once in the air, a very pretty flight attendant came by with a tray of drinks. "Cocktails?" she asked. The Unitarian lifted one off the tray and said, "Thank you." The Baptist had just delivered a fiery sermon on the evils of alcohol that morning. He looked at the flight attendant and said, "Young lady, I would rather commit fornication than touch alcohol to my lips." Shocked, the Unitarian placed his drink back on the tray and said, "I believe I would too, I didn't know we had that choice."

   RedWhiteBlue  My goal for 2016 was to lose just 10 pounds … only 15 to go ...

Ate salad for dinner … Mostly croutons & tomatoes ... Really just one big, round crouton covered with tomato sauce ... And cheese ... FINE, it was a pizza ... I ate a pizza …

How to prepare Tofu:
1. Throw it in the trash.
2. Grill some Meat.

I just did a week's worth of cardio after walking into a spider web ...

I don't mean to brag but … I finished my 14-day diet food in 3 hours and 20 minutes ...

A recent study has found women who carry a little extra weight live longer than men who mention it ...

Kids today don't know how easy they have it ... when I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel ...

Senility has been a smooth transition for me ...

Remember back when we were kids and every time it was below zero out they closed school? Me neither.

I may not be that funny or athletic or good looking or smart or talented … I forgot where I was going with this ...

I love being over 50 … I learn something new every day … and forget 5 others ...

A thief broke into my house last night … He started searching for money … so I woke up and searched with him ...

My dentist told me I need a crown … I said, “You bet, pour mine over rocks” …

I think I'll just put an "Out of Order" sticker on my forehead and call it a day ...

   MeiDei  A painter by the name of Murphy, while not a brilliant scholar, was a gifted portrait artist. Over a short number of years his fame grew and soon people from all over Ireland were coming to the town of Miltown Malbay, in County Clare, to get
him to paint their likenesses.
One day, a beautiful young English woman arrived at his house in a stretch limo and asked if he would paint her in the nude. This being the first time anyone had made such a request he was a bit perturbed, particularly when the woman told him that money was no object; in fact, and she was willing to pay up to $10,000.
Not wanting to get into any marital strife, he asked her to wait while he went into the house to confer with Mary, his wife. They talked much about the Rightness and Wrongness of it. It was hard to make the decision but finally his wife agreed, on one condition.
In a few minutes he returned. "T'would be me pleasure to paint yer portrait, missus," he said "The wife says it's okay. "I'll paint you in the nude all right; but I have to at least leave me socks on, so I have a place to wipe me brushes"
Gotta love the Irish................

A retired older couple return to a Mercedes dealership where the salesman has just sold the car they were interested in, to a beautiful, leggy, busty blonde in a mini skirt and a halter top.

The old man was visibly upset. He spoke to the salesman sharply
"Young man, I thought you said you would hold that car till we raised the $55,000 asking price," said the older man. "Yet I just heard you closed the deal for $45,000 to the lovely young lady there."

"And if I remember right, you had insisted there was no way you could discount this model." The salesman took a deep breath, cleared his throat and reached for a large glass of water.

"Well, what can I tell you? She had the cash ready, didn't need any financing help, and, Sir, just look at her, how could I resist?" replied the grinning salesman sheepishly.

Just then the young woman approached the senior couple and gave the car keys to the old man...

"There you go," she said. "I told you I could get that idiot to lower the price...
See you later, Dad, Happy Father's day."
