Simple home remedies

1. If you're choking on an ice cube, simply pour a cup of boiling water down your throat. Presto! The blockage will instantly remove itself.
2. Avoid cutting yourself when slicing vegetables by getting someone else to hold the vegetables while you chop.
3. Avoid arguments with the females about lifting the toilet seat - use the sink.
4. For high blood pressure sufferers ~ simply cut yourself and bleed for a few minutes, thus reducing the pressure on your veins. Remember to use a timer.
5. A mouse trap placed on top of your alarm clock will prevent you from rolling over and going back to sleep after you hit the snooze button.
6. If you have a bad cough, take a large dose of laxatives. Then you'll be afraid to cough.
7. You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.
8. Remember - everyone seems normal until you get to know them.
9. If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Cannon Balls


On old war ships it was necessary to keep a good supply of cannon balls near the cannon .
But preventing them from rolling about the deck was a problem.

A storage method was devised to stack them pyramid fashion on a square base plate with 16 symetical holes. This meant a ball ball on top, resting on four, resting on nine, which rested on sixteen allowed a supply of 30 cannon balls could be stacked in a small area right next to the cannon.

The metal base plate was called a Monkey, for reasons unknown, was made of brass so the iron, the iron balls would not rust to it. - hence, it bcame knwn as a Brass Monkeys.

As you know brass contracts much faster than iron when chilled. On early designs of monkey plates were not thick enough, so consequently it was found that when the temperature dropped too much, the brass and holes would shrink so much the iron cannon balls would just come right off the monkey.

Thus, it was quite literally, cold enough to freeze the balls off the brass monkey.
And all this time, you thought it was a about some poor defensless animal used as "painful eyes watering" ,male anaotmy metaphor, to describe the power of a cutting chill that can dismember even the cherished member from a brass statue if this poor creature, ... didn't you eh?

Now isn't this just a fabulous bit of historical knowledge to at least a few your uneducated friends.

Navy Retirement Bonus

The Navy found they had too many officers and decided to offer an early retirement bonus. They promised any officer who volunteered for retirement a bonus of $1,000 for every inch measured in a straight line between any two points in his body. The officer got to choose what those two points would be.

The first officer who accepted asked that he be measured from the top of his head to the tip of his toes. He was measured at six feet and walked out with a bonus of $72,000.

The second officer who accepted was a little smarter and asked to be measured from the tip of his outstretched hands to his toes. He walked out with $96,000.

The third one was a non-commissioned officer, a grizzly old Chief who, when asked where he would like to be measured replied, 'From the tip of my weenie to my testicles.

The medical officer instructed the Chief to 'drop 'em', . The medical officer then placed the tape measure on the tip of the Chief's weenie and began to work back. 'Dear Lord!' he exclaimed, 'Where are your testicles?'

The old Chief calmly replied, ' Vietnam. '

Three Men on a Hike

Three men were hiking through a forest when they came upon a large raging, violent river.

Needing to get to the other side, the first man prayed: 'God, please give me the strength to cross the river.'

Poof! God gave him big arms and strong legs and he was able to swim across in about 2 hours, having almost drowned twice.

After witnessing that, the second man prayed: 'God, please give me strength and the tools to cross the river'

Poof! . God gave him a rowboat and strong arms and strong legs and he was able to row across in about an hour after almost capsizing once.

Seeing what happened to the first two men, the third man prayed: 'God, please give me the strength, the tools and the intelligence to cross the river'

Poof! .. He was turned in to a woman. She checked the map, hiked one hundred yards up stream and walked across the bridge.

Case for the Next Life

In my next life I want to live my life backwards.

Start out dead and get that out of the way.

Then wake up in an old people's home feeling better every day.

Next get kicked out for being too healthy and go collect the pension.

Then start work, and get a gold watch and a party on your first day.

Work for 40 years until young enough to enjoy retirement.

Then party, drink alcohol, and are be generally promiscuous, till ready for high school.

Then after go to primary school and then become a kid, and just play with no responsibilities,

Become a baby until born. With the last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, and larger quarters every day and then..


Finish off as an orgasm!

I rest my case. “Woody Allen“

It's a Dog's Life

A little girl asks her mum, 'Mum, can I take the dog for a walk around the block?'

Her mum replies 'No, because she is on heat.'

'What does that mean?' asked the child.

'Go and ask your father. I think he's in the garage.'

The little girl goes out to the garage and says, ' Dad , can I take Lulu for a walk around the block? I asked Mum, but she said the dog was on the heat, and to come ask you.'

He took a rag, soaked it in petrol, and scrubbed the dog's backside with it to disguise the scent, and said 'Ok, you can go now, but keep Lulu on the leash and only go one time around the block.'

The little girl left and returned a few minutes later with no dog on the leash.

Surprised, Dad asked, 'Where's Lulu?'

(You're gonna love this!!!!!!!!!)..............

The little girl said, 'She ran out of petrol about halfway round the block, so another dog is pushing her home.'

Doctor's room

This is so true! They always ask at the doctor's office why you are
there, and you have to answer in front of others what's wrong and
sometimes it is embarrassing. There's nothing worse than a Doctor's
receptionist who insists you tell her what is wrong with you in a
room of other patients. I know most of us have experienced this,

and I love the way this old guy handled it:

An 86 year old man walked into a crowded waiting room and
approached the desk.... The Receptionist said, "Yes sir, what are you
seeing the Doctor for today?"

"There's something wrong with my dick", he replied.

The receptionist became irritated and said, "You shouldn't come
into a crowded waiting room and say things like that."

"Why not? You asked me what was wrong and I told you," he said.

The Receptionist replied; "Now you've caused some embarrassment
in this room full of people. You should have said there is something

wrong with your ear or something, and discussed the problem further
with the Doctor in private."

The man replied, "You shouldn't ask people questions in a room full
of strangers, if the answer could embarrass anyone."

The man walked out, waited several minutes and then re-entered.

The Receptionist smiled smugly and asked, "Yes??"

"There's something wrong with my ear", he stated.

The Receptionist nodded approvingly and smiled, knowing he had
taken her advice.
"And what is wrong with your ear, Sir??"

"I can't piss out of it," he replied.

The waiting room erupted in laughter.

Defective Parrot

A guy in a pet shop and sees a parrot that doesn't have any feet or legs.

He says aloud, I wonder what happened to this parrot?'

The parrot says, 'I was born this way. I'm a defective parrot.'

'Holy crap,' the guy replies. 'You actually understood me!'

'I got every word,' I am a highly intelligent & educated bird.'

So how how do you hang onto your perch without any feet?'

'Well,' its embarrassing I wrap my weenie around this wooden bar. You can't see it because of my feathers.'

'Wow,' 'You really can understand and speak English can't you?'

'Actually, I speak both Spanish and English, and I can converse with reasonable competence on almost any topic: politics, religion, sports, physics, philosophy. I'm especially good at ornithology. You really ought to buy me. I'd be a great companion.'

So the guy walks out with the parrot.

Weeks go by. The parrot is sensational. He has a great sense of humor, he's interesting, he's a great pal, he understands everything, he sympathizes, and he's insightful.

One day he comes home from work and the parrot goes, 'Psssssssssssst,' and motions him over with one wing. 'I don't know if I should tell you this or not, but it's about your wife and the postman.'

'What are you talking about?'

'When the postman delivered the mail today, your wife greeted him at the door in a sheer black nightie.'

'WHAT???' the guy asks incredulously. 'THEN what happened?'

'Well, then the postman came into the house and lifted up her nightie and began petting her all over,'

And she let him?'

'Yes. Then he continued taking off the nightie! , got down on his knees and began to kiss her all over....'

Frantic guy demands, 'THEN WHAT HAPPENED?'

'Damned if I know. I got a hard-on and fell off my perch!'

If this doesn't make you laugh, you're having a really bad day !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
