"For a discount airline, this food ain't too bad!"

Staking out a notoriously rowdy bar for possible D.U.I. violators, a cop watched from his squad car as a fellow stumbled out the door, tripped on the curb and tried 45 cars before opening the door to his own and falling asleep on the front seat.

One by one, the drivers of the other cars drove off. Finally, the sleeper woke up, started his car and began to leave. The cop pulled him over and administered a Breathalyzer test. When the results showed a 0.0 blood-alcohol level, the puzzled policeman asked him how that was possible. "Easy," was the reply. "Tonight was my turn to be the decoy"

Two whales, a male and female, are swimming off the coast of Japan when the male whale looks up and sees the whaling ship that killed his father five years ago. Excited at the opportunity to avenge his father's death, the male whale says to the female "Let's go underneath the ship and blow air through our blow holes. That ought to knock their boat over, and make them think twice about killing innocent whales." The female whale agrees, and the plan works perfectly.

Once the whaling ship has completely sunk, the male whale notices that most of the sailors are making their way back to the shore by either swimming or in lifeboats. Not willing to let them get away so easily, the male whale yells "They're going to shore - Let's go gobble them up!" Just then, the female whale becomes less cooperative: "Sure", she says, "I agreed to the blow job, but there is NO WAY I'm swallowing seamen!"

Engineer VS Programers

A Programmer and an Engineer were sitting next to each other on an airplane. The Programmer leans over to the Engineer and asks if he wants to play a fun game. The Engineer just wants to sleep so he politely declines, turns away and tries to sleep. The Programmer persists and explains that it's a real easy game. He explains,"I ask a question and if you don't know the answer you pay me $5. Then you ask a question and if I don't know the answer I'll pay you $5." Again the Engineer politely declines and tries to sleep.

The Programmer, now somewhat agitated, says, "O.K., if you don't know the answer you pay me $5 and if I don't know the answer I pay you $50!" Now, that got the Engineer's attention, so he agrees to the game. The Programmer asks the first question, "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" Then Engineer doesn't say a word and just hands the Programmer $5.

Now, its the Engineer's turn. He asks the Programmer,"What goes up a hill with three legs and comes down on four?" The Programmer looks at him with a puzzled look, takes out his laptop computer, looks through all his references and after about an hour wakes the Engineer and hands the Engineer $50. The Engineer politely takes the $50 turns away and tries to return to sleep.

The Programmer, a little miffed, asks, "Well what's the answer to the question?" Without a word, the Engineer reaches into his wallet, hands $5 to the Programmer, turns away and returns to sleep.

Management in Corporate America

The Americans and the Japanese decided to engage in a boat race.

Both teams practiced hard and long to reach their peak performance levels.

On the big day they felt ready. The Japanese won by a mile.

The American team was discouraged by the loss. Morale sagged.

Corporate management decided that the reason for the crushing defeat had to be found, so a consulting firm was hired to investigate the problem and recommend corrective action.

The consultant's finding: The Japanese team had eight people rowing and one person steering; the American team had one person rowing and eight people steering.

After a year of study and millions spent analyzing the problem, the consultant firm concluded that too many people were steering and not enough were rowing on the American team. So as race day neared again the following year, the American team's management structure was completely reorganized.

The new structure: four steering managers, three area steering managers, and a new performance review system for the person rowing the boat to provide work incentive.

The next year, the Japanese won by TWO miles!!!

Humiliated, the American corporation laid off the rower for poor performance and gave the managers a bonus for discovering the problem.

Subject: Democrat or Republican?

An elderly gentleman wanted to go into town for voting day.

As his car was in the shop, he had to hitchhike the five miles into town.

Sticking out his thumb, he was picked up by a young man.

"Where ya goin', Gramps?" the man asked cheerfully.

"I'm going in town to vote."

"Great! How're ya votin'?"

"I'm voting Democrat," the elder answered.

The young man immediately pulled over to the curb, and kicked out the man.

Sticking out his thumb, he was picked up by an older fellow like himself.

"Going into town to vote, are you? Which way are you voting?"

"Well, I'm voting Democrat..."

Once again, he was driven to the curb and kicked out.

He stuck out his thumb again, and this time was picked up by a voluptuous woman in a sports car. She was delighted to hear that he was going into town to vote. She asked him his political choice.

"Well, I'm going to vote... Republican. Yeah, Republican!"

"Wonderful!" she said, " I'm glad to hear that!"

As they drove, he couldn't help but notice that her skirt was riding up her leg, exposing her various charms. He stared for a while, then burst into laughter.

"What's so funny?" the woman asked?

"Well, I've only been a Republican for five minutes, and already I feel like fucking someone!!"

On a piece of paper draw one large circle and a smaller cicle.

Two guys found themselves up in front of a judge for drug crimes.

The judge says " Guys, our prison system is full so I will make you a deal. For all of the people you get to stop using drugs I will reduce your time in months.You get 1 month to do this.

The bad guys agreed.

1 month later they were in front of the judge again. The judge asks the 1st guy how he did.

The 1st guy replies " Your Honor, I'm happy to say I got 40 people off drugs!

The judge says "Great, how did you do it"?

The 1st guy says " I drew these circles and ( pointing to the larger circle) I say this is your brain without drugs and (pointing to the smaller circle) this is your brain when you use drugs"

The judge was very happy and he asks the 2nd guy his results.

The 2nd guy say he got 4000 people from using drugs.

4000!asks the judge How did you do it?

The 2nd guy says " I used the same principle as the 1st guy but I said (pointing to the smaller circle) This is your ass-hole before you get sent to prison for drug use and (pointing to the larger circle) this is your ass-hole after you've been to prison.

Two nuns are ordered to paint a room in the convent, and the last instruction of the Mother Superior is that they must not get even a drop of paint on their habits.

After conferring about this for a while, the two nuns decide to lock the door of the room, strip off their habits, and paint in the nude.

In the middle of the project, there comes a knock at the door. "Who is it?", calls one of the nuns. "Blind man," replies a voice from the other side of the door.

The two nuns look at each other and shrug, and, deciding that no harm can come from letting a blind man into the room, they open the door. "Nice boobs," says the man, "where do you want these blinds?"

Engineers think that equations approximate the real world.

Scientists think that the real world approximates equations.

Mathematicians are unable to make the connection...

A Mathematician, a Biologist and a Physicist are sitting in a street cafe watching people going in and coming out of the house on the other side of the street.

First they see two people going into the house. Time passes.

After a while they notice three persons coming out of the house.

The Physicist: "The measurement wasn't accurate.".

The Biologists conclusion: "They have reproduced".

The Mathematician: "If now exactly 1 person enters the house then it will be empty again."

An engineer, a physicist, and a mathematician are shown a pasture with a herd of sheep, and told to put them inside the smallest possible amount of fence.

The engineer is first. He herds the sheep into a circle and then puts the fence around them, declaring, "A circle will use the least fence for a given area, so this is the best solution."

The physicist is next. She creates a circular fence of infinite radius around the sheep, and then draws the fence tight around the herd, declaring, "This will give the smallest circular fence around the herd."

The mathematician is last. After giving the problem a little thought, he puts a small fence around himself and then declares, "I define myself to be on the outside!"

An engineer, a mathematician, and a physicist went to the races one Saturday and laid their money down. Commiserating in the bar after the race, the engineer says, "I don't understand why I lost all my money. I measured all the horses and calculated their strength and mechanical advantage and figured out how fast they could run..." The physicist interrupted him: "...but you didn't take individual variations into account. I did a statistical analysis of their previous performances and bet on the horses with the highest probability of winning..."

"...so if you're so hot why are you broke?" asked the engineer. But before the argument can grow, the mathematician takes out his pipe and they get a glimpse of his well-fattened wallet. Obviously here was a man who knows something about horses. They both demanded to know his secret.

"Well," he says, between puffs on the pipe, "first I assumed all the horses were identical and spherical..."
