Official joke of the day thread

An old country preacher had a teenage son, and it was getting time the boy should give some thought to choosing a profession. Like many young men, the boy didn't really know what he wanted to do, and he didn't seem too concerned about it.
One day, while the boy was away to school, his father decided to try an experiment. He went into the boy's room and placed on his study table four objects.

A bible

A silver dollar

A bottle of whisky

And a Playboy magazine.

'I'll just hide behind the door', the old preacher said to himself. 'When he comes home from school this afternoon, 'I'll see which object he picks up.
If it's the bible, he's going to be a preacher like me and what a blessing that would be!
If he picks up the dollar, he's going to be a business man, and that would be okay, too.
But if he picks up the bottle. he's going to be a no-good drunkard, and Lord, what a shame that would be.
And worst of all if he picks up that magazine he' s going to be a skirt-chasing bum.
The old man waited anxiously, and soon heard his son's foot-steps as he entered the house whistling and headed for his room.
The boy tossed his books on the bed, and as he turned to leave the room he spotted the objects on the table.
With curiosity in his eye, he walked over to inspect them
Finally, he picked up the Bible and placed it under his arm.
He picked up the silver dollar and dropped into his pocket. He uncorked the bottle and took a big drink while he admired this months centerfold.
'Lord have mercy.' the old preacher disgustedly whispered.
'He's gonna run for Congress.'

Political joke of the day

A distinguished man dies and goes to heaven. At the gates, he is met by St. Peter who welcomes him.

St. Pete: Welcome. Before I can admit you, I have to check your clock.

Gentleman: Clock?

St. Pete: Yes clock. When you were born, we put a clock with your name on it on the wall. Every time you tell a lie, the arms move. There, for instance, is George Washinton's. Notice that its at !2 o'clock. He never told a lie.

Gentleman: I see that, but Thomas Jefferson's is at 12:05.

St. Pete: Yes, he only told one lie in his life.

The old man stops for a second and then asks "where is Hillary Clinton's clock?"

St. Pete: Oh, Jesus keeps that one in his office. He uses it as a ceiling fan.

At dawn the telephone rings, 'Hello, Senor Rod? This is Ernesto, the caretaker at your country house.'

'Ah yes, Ernesto. What can I do for you? Is there a problem?'

'Um, I am just calling to advise you, Senor Rod, that your parrot, he is dead'

'My parrot? Dead? The one that won the International competition?'

'Si, Senor, that's the one.'

'Damn! That's a pity! I spent a small fortune on that bird. What did he die from?'

'From eating the rotten meat, Senor Rod.'

'Rotten meat? Who the hell fed him rotten meat?'

'Nobody, Senor. He ate the meat of the dead horse.'

'Dead horse? What dead horse?'

'The thoroughbred, Senor Rod.'

'My prize thoroughbred is dead?'

'Yes Senor Rod, he died from all that work pulling the water cart.'

'Are you insane?? What water cart?'

'The one we used to put out the fire, Senor.'

'Good Lord!! What fire are you talking about, man??'

'The one at your house, Senor! A candle fell and the curtains caught on fire.'

'What the hell?? Are you saying that my mansion is destroyed because of a candle?? !!'

'Yes, Senor Rod.'

'But there's electricity at the house!! What was the candle for?'

'For the funeral, Senor Rod.'


'Your wife's, Senor Rod', she showed up very late one night and I thought she was a thief, so I hit her with your new tailor made Super Quad 460 golf club.'

SILENCE . . . . . . . . . . .LONG SILENCE . . . . . . . . . .

'Ernesto, if you broke that driver, you're in deep trouble !!'

A teacher noticed that a little boy at the back of the class was squirming around, scratching his crotch, and not paying attention.

She went back to find out what was going on.

He was quite embarrassed and whispered that he had just recently been circumcised and he was quite itchy.

The teacher told him to go down to the principal's office.

He was to telephone his mother and ask her what he should do about it. He did and returned to his class.

Suddenly, there was a commotion at the back of the room.

She went back to investigate only to find him sitting at his desk with his "private part" hanging out.

"I thought I told you to call your mom!" she said.

"I did,"! he said, "And she told me that if I could stick it out till noon, she'd come and pick me up from school."

Driving Rules for Los Angeles

1. You must first learn to pronounce the city name. It is L. A.

2. The morning rush hour is from 5:00 a.m. to noon. The evening rush
hour is from noon to 7:00 p.m. Friday's rush hour starts on Thursday

3. The minimum acceptable speed on most freeways is 85 mph.
On the 105 or 110, your speed is expected to match the highway
number. Anything less is considered wussy.

4. Forget the traffic rules you learned elsewhere. L. A. has its own
version of traffic rules. For example, cars/trucks with the loudest
muffler go first at a four-way stop; the trucks with the biggest tires
go second. In Malibu, however, SUV-driving, cell phone-talking
moms ALWAYS have the right of way.

5. If you actually stop at a yellow light, you will be rear ended,
cussed out, and possibly shot.

6. Never honk at anyone. Ever. Seriously. It's another offense that
can get you shot.

7. Road construction is permanent and continuous in all of L.A.,
Orange, San Diego, San Bernardino and Riverside counties.
Detour barrels are moved around at random nightly for your
entertainment pleasure during the wee hours, to make the next
day's driving a bit more exciting.

8. Mapquest does not work here -- none of the roads are where they
say they are or go where they say they go, and all the freeway off and
on ramps are moved each night.

9. If someone actually has their turn signal on, wave them to the
shoulder immediately to let them know it has been 'accidentally

10. If you are in the left lane and only driving 70 in a 55-65 mph
zone, you are considered a road hazard and will be 'flipped off'
accordingly. If you return the flip, you'll be shot.

11. Do not try to estimate travel time -- just leave Monday afternoon
for Tuesday appointments, by noon Thursday for Friday appointments,
and right after religious studies or services on Sunday for anything on Monday morning.

12. And finally, why is the San Diego
Freeway called the '405'?
Because no matter where you are going, it takes 4 or 5 hours to get

A car gets a flat on the interstate one day. The blonde driver eases it over
onto the shoulder of the road, carefully steps out of the car and opens the
She takes out two cardboard men, unfolds them and stands them at the rear of
the vehicle facing oncoming traffic. The lifelike cardboard men are in trench
coats exposing their nude bodies and private parts to approaching drivers.
Not surprisingly, the traffic becomes snarled and backed up.
It isn't very long before a police car arrives. The officer, clearly enraged,
approaches the blonde of the disabled vehicle yelling, "What's going on here?"
"My car broke down, officer" says the woman calmly.
"Well, what the hell are these obscene cardboard pictures doing here by the
road?" he asks.

"Helllooooooo!!!!" says the blonde. "Those are my emergency flashers!"

Please excuse the rough language in the following story...

A young couple got married and went on their honeymoon. When they got

back, the bride immediately called her mother. "Well," said her mother,

"so how was the honeymoon?"

Oh, mama," she replied, "the honeymoon was wonderful! So

romantic..." Suddenly she burst out crying. "But, mama, as soon as we

returned, Sam started using the most horrible language -- things I'd

never heard before! I mean, all these awful 4-letter words! You've got

to take me home..., PLEASE MAMA!"

"Sarah, Sarah," her mother said, "calm down! You need to stay with your

husband and work this out. Now, tell me, what could be so awful? WHAT

4-letter words?"

"Please don't make me tell you, mama," wept the daughter, "I'm so

embarrassed, they're just too awful! COME GET ME, PLEASE!!"

"Darling, baby, you must tell me what has you so upset. Tell your mother

these horrible 4-letter words!"

Sobbing, the bride said, "Oh, Mama..., he used words like: Dust, Wash, Iron, Cook..."

"I'll pick you up in twenty minutes," said the mother.
