THE GR0ANERS & SHAGGY PUPPY STORIES
Russ heard a cry from the kitchen. He got up from the couch and went in
to find Emma in a flour-splotched apron, and the table and counters
covered with baking equipment. "What's the matter, hon?" he asked
solicitously. "I got everything for this recipe," she replied. "Except
for those few things you always have around the house. It calls for a
bit of salt, and the shaker's empty, and I emptied the box last time I
filled the shakers." Russ took her waist tenderly. "We have margarita
salt in the bar, honey. That will work in a pinch." (Bob Dvorak)

as he was drawing off the first bottle of whiskey. "Here, try this and
tell me if you think it's aged enough," said the novice moonshiner.

miserable. Moral of the story: What you pee is what you wet. (Stephen
While taking a routine vandalism report at an elementary school, I was

The king of Siam and the governess of his children were both taken ill
and began vomiting. Everything they ate just seemed to come right back
up. After a few days it was discovered that they weren't ill at all but
had both developed an eating disorder. Of course the newspapers in the
kingdom were closely controlled by the monarch and the editor was
forbidden from publishing the true nature of their maladies. By
introducing the story with a cryptic three word headline, the crafty
editor was able to get around the king's order but still managed to get
the truth out to the public. What was the headline?

Went home and put a pullet through his bed.

A Dutch actress who posted x-rays of her breasts on her website to
prove they are natural has been accused of breaking the law. The Dutch
ultrasound and radiotherapy association, NVMBR, has reported Georgina
Verbaan for using a mammogram for illegal purposes. The star posted a
copy of the mammogram x-ray to her website,
<http://georginaverbaan.nl.html>, to disprove claims she has silicon
implants. Her breasts have been the subject of debate for some time in
Dutch gossip magazines in what has become known as the "boobgate"
scandal. She appeared in the Dutch edition of Playboy magazine this
month but the pictures only added to speculation her breasts were fake.
But after she posted the images to settle the matter the NVMBR claimed
that the use of x-ray technology without due medical reason is illegal,
saying the regulations governing the use of x-rays was laid out in
Dutch law. The NVMBR now fears a rise in the applications for
unnecessary tests by other women wanting to prove their breasts are

At dinner one night, my sister's kids asked, "Daddy, why do you call
Mommy honey?" "Mommy is my honey," he said. The kids picked up the

other for the duration of the meal, lest they crack up and then have to
explain why.(Haust Javeri)

Paddy was walking through a town one day when he saw a shop with a
notice in the window. The notice said "We sell everything". Paddy could
not believe this so he went inside. He walked to the counter and asked
the salesperson, "Do you really sell everything?" The salesperson said
"Yes, everything". Thinking this was too good to be true Paddy said "OK
then could I have a jumper for a chicken?". The salesperson said "A
jumper for a chicken?, hold on I will have to check the stock out the
back". Five minutes later, the salesperson returned with a brown paper
bag. "Here you go, one jumper for a chicken" "How much?" asked Paddy.
"Three quid." replied the salesperson. "Three quid for a jumper for a
chicken - excellent." said Paddy. So away he went as happy as larry.
When he got outside he thought to himself that maybe he was done, so he
looked inside the bag. At the bottom of the bag was a condom. He was
mad and stormed back into the shop. He screamed at the saleperson "Hey,
I asked you for a jumper for a chicken and you have given me a condom -
whats going on?" The salesperson replied, "Sorry mate, I checked in the
back and we seem to be all out of jumpers for chickens, all we had was
a pullover for a cock." (Joan DeGrave)
