There is this ship that goes out to sea and crashes. 6 (1 woman and 5 men)
people survive and use a safety raft to float to a deserted island.
After spending several weeks on the island, they all begin to get really
lonely, sexually deprived lonely. So they come to this agreement: each man
will marry the one woman for a week. So the first man has her for one week,
then the second man has her for the second week, and so on.
Everyone will now be getting sex and they all agree to it. This goes on for
five years and everyone is happy. Each man gets sex every fifth week and the
woman gets to have sex whenever she wants with a different man every week.
Well, a few weeks into the fifth year, the woman dies!!!! The first week is
pretty bad, the second week is is still pretty bad, the third week it's getting
worse, the fourth week things are just bad, really bad, the fifth week it is
just awful, it's getting so bad, soooooo...on the sixth week.
They bury her.
A man who just got a raise decides to buy a new scope for his
rifle. He goes to a rifle shop, and asks the clerk to show him a scope.
The clerk takes out a scope, and says to the man, "This scope is so
good, you can see my house all the way up on that hill". The man takes
a look through the scope, and starts laughing. "What's so funny?" asks
the clerk. "I see a naked man and a naked woman running around in the
house", the man replies.
The clerk grabs the scope from the man, and looks at his house.Then
he hands two bullets to the man and says, "Here are two bullets, I'll
give you this scope for nothing if you take these two bullets, shoot my
wife's head off and shoot the guy's dick off". The man takes another
look through the scope, and says, "You know what? I think I can do
that with one shot!"
Three women are having lunch, discussing their husbands.
The first says, "My husband is cheating on me, I just know it.
I found a pair of stockings in his jacket pocket, and they weren't

I found a condom in his wallet, so I poked it full of holes with my
The third woman fainted.
One day, little Billy comes home from kindergarten for lunch. Not
finding his mother in the kitchen or the living room, he heads
upstairs to check her bedroom.
He opens the door, and what does he see, but his father, who had
also come home for lunch, stripped naked, on top of his mother,
also naked, heavily into the act of lovemaking.
Not wanting to traumatize the boy, the parents continue as if
nothing was wrong.
Billy watches, and after a couple of minutes asks, "Daddy, can
I climb on and have a horsey ride?"
"Of course, Son, we're a family."
So Billy climbs on and after a few more minutes his mother starts
moaning and writhing wildly.
"Hang on Dad!", cries Billy, "this is where me and the mailman
usually fall off!"

A Guide To Software Revisions
Once you start playing with software you quickly become aware that each
software package has a revision code attached to it. It is obvious that
this revision code gives the sequence of changes to the product, but in
reality there's substantially more information available through the rev
code than that. This article provides a guide for interpreting the
meaning of the revision codes and what they actually signify.
Also known as "one point uh-oh", or "barely out of beta". We had to
release because the lab guys had reached a point of exhaustion and the
marketing guys were in a cold sweat of terror. We're praying that you'll
find it more functional than, say, a computer virus and that its operation
has some resemblance to that specified in the marketing copy.
We fixed all the killer bugs ...
Uh, we introduced a few new bugs fixing the killer bugs and so we had
to fix them, too.
We did the product we really wanted to do to begin with. Mind you,
it's really not what the customer needs yet, but we're working on it.
Well, not surprisingly, we broke some things in making major changes so
we had to fix them. But we did a really good job of testing this time,
so we don't think we introduced any new bugs while we were fixing these
Uh, sorry, one slipped through. One lousy typo error and you won't
believe how much trouble it caused!
Some anal-retentive pain in the ass found a deep-seated bug that's been
there since 1.0 and has been raising hell until we fixed it.
Hey, we finally think we've got it right! Most of the customers are
really happy with this.
Of course we did break a few little things.
More features. It's doubled in size now, by the way, and you'll need
to get memory and a faster processor ...
Just one or two bugs this time. Honest.
We really need to go on to a new product but we have an installed base
out there to protect. We're cutting the staffing after this.
We had to fix a few things we broke in 5.0. Not very many, but it's
been so long since we looked at this thing we might as well call it a
major upgrade. Oh, yeah, we added a few flashy cosmetic features so we
could justify the major upgrade number.
Since I'm leaving the company and I'm the last guy left in the lab who
works on the product, I wanted to make sure that all the changes I've made
are incorporated before I go. I added some cute demos, too, since I was
getting pretty bored back here in my dark little corner (I kept
complaining about the lighting but they wouldn't do anything). They're
talking about obsolescence planning but they'll try to keep selling it for
as long as there's a buck or two to be made. I'm leaving the bits in as
good a shape as I can in case somebody has to tweak them, but it'll be
sheer luck if no one loses the.....................

While this Eskimo is driving in Alaska, suddenly, his car starts to putter.
He barely makes it to the next town, and tells the mechanic about his problem.
The mechanic agrees to check the car out while the Eskimo is having lunch at
the diner across the street. An hour later, the Eskimo returns, anxious about
the diagnosis. The mechanic looks at him and says, "Well, looks like you blew
a seal." The Eskimo swiftly wipes his mouth with his hand and replies, "No,
that's just mayonnaise."
Once upon a time there was a little old man who really took care of his
body. One morning he looked into the mirror admiring his body when he
noticed that he was sun-tanned over his entire body except for his
penis. He decided to do something about it. He promtly went to the
beach, completely undressed and buried himself in the sand except for
Just as he settled in, two little old ladies were strolling along the
sand, one had a cane in hand. Upon seeing this THING sticking out of
the sand, the lady with the cane began to move it about with her
walking stick. She then remarked to the other old lady, "There ain't
hardly no justice in this world Emma."
"Why ya say that Martha?" the other replied.
"Well... when I was 20, I was CURIOUS about it, when I was 30, I
ENJOYED it. When I was 40 I ASKED for it and when I was 50 I PAYED for
it. When I was 60 I PRAYED for it and when I was 70 I FORGOT about

There was once a Scotsman and an Englishman who lived next door to
each other. The Scotsman owned a hen and each morning would look in
his garden and pick up one of his hen's eggs for breakfast.
One day he looked into his garden and saw that the hen had laid an egg
in the Englishman's garden. He was about to go next door when he saw
the Englishman pick up the egg. The Scotsman ran up to the Englishman
and told him that the egg belonged to him because he owned the hen.
The Englishman disagreed because the egg was laid on his property.
They argued for a while until finally the Scotsman said, "In my family
we normally solve disputes by the following actions: I kick you in the
balls and time how long it takes you to get back up, then you kick me
in the balls and time how long it takes for me to get up, whomever
gets up quicker wins the egg."
The Englishman agreed to this and so the Scotsman found his heaviest
pair of boots and put them on, he took a few steps back, then ran
toward the Englishman and kicked as hard as he could in the balls.
The Englishman fell to the floor clutching his nuts howling in agony
for 30 minutes.
Eventually the Englishman stood up and said, "Now it's my turn to kick
The Scotsman said, "Keep th' daam egg."
MARRIAGE & MEN
Getting married is very much like going to a continental restaurant with
friends. You order what you want, then when you see what the other fellow
has, you wish you had ordered that.
At the cocktail party, one woman said to another, "Aren't you wearing your
wedding ring on the wrong finger?" The other replied, "Yes I am, I married
the wrong man."
Man is incomplete until he is married. Then he is really finished.
Marriage is an institution in which a man loses his bachelor's degree and
the woman gets her master's.
Young Son: Is it true, Dad, I heard that in some parts of Africa a man
doesn't know his wife until he marries her? Dad: That happens in most
When a newly married man looks happy we know why. But when a ten-year
married man looks happy - we wonder why.
Married life is very frustrating. In the first year of marriage, the man
speaks and the woman listens. In the second year, the woman speaks and the
man listens. In the third year, they both speak and the neighbors listen.
After a quarrel, a wife said to her husband, "You know, I was a fool when I
married you." And the husband replied, "Yes, dear, but I was in love and
didn't notice it."
It doesn't matter how often a married man changes his job, he still ends up
with the same boss.
A man inserted an 'ad' in the classifiers: "Wife wanted". Next day he
received a hundred letters. They all said the same thing: "You can have mine."
When a man opens the door of his car for his wife, you can be sure of one
thing: either the car is new or the wife.
A woman was telling her friend, "It is I who made my husband a millionaire."
"And what was he before you married him." Asked the friend. The woman
replied, "A multi-millionaire".

+ the drunk ran and got the priest to come and listen to it. The priest bent
+ close to the grave and heard some faint, unrecognizable music coming
+ from the grave. Frightened, the priest ran and got the town magistrate.
+ When the magistrate arrived, he bent his ear to the grave, listened for a
+ moment, and said, "Ah, yes, that's Mozart's Ninth Symphony, being played
+ backwards." He listened a while longer, and said, "There's the Eighth
+ Symphony, and it's backwards, too. Most puzzling." So the magistrate
+ kept listening; "There's the Seventh... the Sixth... the Fifth..." Suddenly
+ the realization of what was happening dawned on the magistrate; he stood up
+ and announced to the crowd that had gathered in the cemetery, "My fellow
+ citizens, there's nothing to worry about. It's just Mozart decomposing."
Here's a strange thing I observed in a brothel in New Orleans last weekend.
A Koala bear was going down on a prostitute all night. At the end of the
night the koala bear put on his clothes and opened the door to leave. The
protitute said, "You haven't paid me yet." Seeing that the Koala was
confused she pulled out her dictionary and pointed out the definition of a
Prostitute. One who has sex and gets paid. So the bear turned to the
definition of a koala. One who eats bush and leaves.
+ Subject: FWD: Humor: The dangers of thinking
+ It started out innocently enough. I began to think at parties now and
+ then to loosen up. Inevitably though, one thought led to another, and
+ soon I was more than just a social thinker.
+ I began to think alone -"to relax," I told myself - but I knew it
+ wasn't true. Thinking became more and more important to me, and
+ finally I was thinking all the time.
+ I began to think on the job. I knew that thinking and employment
+ don't mix, but I couldn't stop myself.
+ I began to avoid friends at lunchtime so I could read Thoreau and
+ Kafka. I would return to the office dizzied and confused, asking,
+ "What is it exactly we are doing here?"
+ Things weren't going so great at home either. One evening I had
+ turned off the TV and asked my wife about the meaning of life. She
+ spent that night at her mother's.
+ I soon had a reputation as a heavy thinker. One day the boss called
+ me in. He said, "Skippy, I like you, and it hurts me to say this, but
+ your thinking has become a real problem. If you don't stop thinking
+ on the job, you'll have to find another job." This gave me a lot to
+ think about.
+ I came home early after my conversation with the boss. "Honey," I
+ confessed, "I've been thinking..."
+ "I know you've been thinking," she said, "and I want a divorce!"
+ "But Honey, surely it's not that serious."
+ "It is serious," she said, lower lip aquiver. "You think as much as
+ college professors, and college professors don't make any money, so if
+ you keep on thinking we won't have any money!"
+ "That's a faulty syllogism," I said impatiently, and she began to cry.
+ I'd had enough. "I'm going to the library," I snarled as I stomped
+ out the door.
+ I headed for the library, in the mood for some Nietzsche, with a PBS
+ station on the radio. I roared into the parking lot and ran up to the
+ big glass doors...they didn't open. The library was closed.
+ To this day, I believe that a Higher Power was looking out for me that
+ As I sank to the ground clawing at the unfeeling glass, whimpering for
+ Zarathustra, a poster caught my eye. "Friend, is heavy thinking
+ ruining your life?" it asked. You probably recognize that line. It
+ comes from the standard Thinker's Anonymous poster.
+ Which is why I am what I am today: a recovering thinker. I never miss
+ a TA meeting. At each meeting we watch a non-educational video; last
+ week it was "Porky's." Then we share experiences about how we avoided
+ thinking since the last meeting.
+ I still have my job, and things are a lot better at home. Life just
+ seemed...easier, somehow, as soon as I stopped thinking.

On the top of a tall building in a large city, there was a bar. In this
bar, a man was drinking heavily. He would ask the bartender for a tequila
shot, then walk out to the balcony and jump off.
Minutes later, he would appear in the elevator and repeat the entire
This one guy watched this happen a number of times until curiosity got the
better of him. Finally, he went up to the man and asked, "Hey, you keep
drinking, then jumping off the balcony. And yet, minutes later, you're
back again. How do you do it?"
"Well, the shot of tequila provides buoyancy such that when I get near the
ground, I slow down and land gently. It's lots of fun. You should try
The guy, who was also quite drunk out of his gourd, thought to himself,
"Hey, why not?" So he goes to the bar, drinks a shot of tequila, then
walks out to the balcony, jumps off, and whooooooooooooo, SPLAT!
The bartender shakes his head, looks over at the first guy and says,
"Superman, you're an asshole when you're drunk."
Bob complained to his friend "My elbow really hurts. I guess I should
see a doctor." His friend offered, "Don't do that!!! There's a
computer at the drug store that can diagnose anything, quicker and
cheaper than a doctor. Simply put in a sample of your urine and the
computer will diagnose your problem and tell you what you can do about
it. It only costs $10.00."
Bob figured he had nothing to lose, so he filled a jar with a urine
sample and went to the drug store. Finding the computer, he poured in
the sample and deposited the $10.00. The computer started making some
noises and the various lights started flashing. After a brief pause
out popped a small slip of paper on which was printed:
You have tennis elbow
Soak your arm in warm water.
Avoid heavy labor
It will be better in two weeks.
Late that evening while thinking how amazing this new technology was
and how it would change medical science forever, he began to wonder if
this machine could be fooled. He decided to give it a try.
He mixed together some tap water, a stool sample from his dog and
urine samples from his wife and daughter. To top it off, he
masturbated into the concoction. He went back to the drug store,
located the machine, poured in the sample and deposited the $10.00.
The machine again made the usual noise and printed out the following
Your tap water is too hard
Get a water softener.
Your dog has worms
Give him vitamins.
Your daughter's on drugs,
Put her in rehab.
Your wife's pregnant
It ain't yours -- get a lawyer.
And if you don't stop jerking off,
Your tennis elbow will never get better.

SOBER Condition in which it is almost impossible to fall in love
A little boy wanted $100 badly and prayed two weeks but
nothing happened. Then he decided to write GOD a letter requesting the
$100. When the postal authorities received the letter GOD USA, they decided
to send it to President Clinton. The President was so impressed, touched,
and amused that he instructed his secretary to send the little boy a $5.00
bill. President Clinton thought this would appear to be a lot of money
to a little boy.
The little boy was delighted with the $5.00 and sat down to write a thank you
note to GOD, which read:
Thank you very much for sending the money,
however, I noticed that for some reason you had to
send it through Washington D.C. and, as usual, those
bastards deducted $95.00.
Microsoft Panhandler v1.0 (Beta)
Redmond, WA -- Microsoft Corporation chair, CEO and all-around babe
magnet Bill Gates announced yesterday the introduction of a new product
for Windows 95: Microsoft Panhandling.
"The idea came to me the other day when a homeless man asked me for
money,"recalls Gates. "I suddenly realized that we were missing a golden
opportunity. Here was a chance to make a profit without any initial
monetary investment. Naturally, this man then became my competition, so I
had my limo driver run over him several times."
Microsoft engineers have been working around the clock to complete Gates'
vision of panhandling for the 21st century.
"We feel that our program designers really understand how the poor and
needy situation works," says Microsoft Homeless product leader Bernard Liu.
"Except for the fact that they're stinking rich."
Microsoft Panhandling will be automatically installed with Windows 95. At
random intervals, a dialog box pops up, asking the user if they could
spare any change so that Microsoft has enough money to get a hot meal.
("This is a little lie," admits software engineer Adam Miller, "since our
diet consists of Coke and Twinkies, but what panhandler doesn't embellish
a little?") The user can click Yes, in which case a random amount of
change between $.05 and $142.50 is transferred from the user's bank
account to Microsoft's. The user can also respond No, in which case the
program politely tells the user to have a nice day. The "No" button has
not yet been implemented.
"We're experiencing a little trouble programming the No button," Bernard
Liu says, "but we should definitely have it up and running within the
next couple of years. Or at least by the time Windows 2014 comes out.
Gates says this is just the start of an entire line of products.
"Be on the lookout for products like Microsoft Mugging, which either
takes $50 or erases your hard drive, and Microsoft Squegee Guy, which
will clean up your Windows for a dollar." (When Microsoft Squegee Guy
ships, Windows 95 will no longer automatically refresh your windows.)
But there are competitors on the horizon. Sun Microsystems and Oracle
Corporation are introducing panhandling products of their own.
"Gates is a few tacos short of a combination platter, if you get my
drift," says Oracle Head Honcho and 3rd degree black belt Larry Ellison.
"I mean, in the future, we won't need laptop computers asking you for
change. You'll have an entire network of machines asking you for money."
Gates responded with, "I know what you are, but what am I?" General
pandemonium then ensued.
