    A drunk is sitting at a bar, and says, "Bartender! Another drink."

    The bartender shakes his head and says, "No you've had enough."

    "Well," the drunk says. "How about if I show you something really cool? Then will you give me a drink?"

    "Sure," the bartender says. "But it's gotta be pretty cool."

    The drunk takes a tiny piano and a frog out of his pockets and sets them on the bar. The frog starts banging away, playing a beautiful song.
    The bartender gives him a drink. The drunk downs it, and orders another.

    "No way," the bartender says. "Now you've really had enough."

    "If you give me a drink, I'll show you something even cooler," says the drunk.
    The bartender agrees.
    The drunk pulls out a rat, and sets it next to the piano. The frog starts banging away again, and the rat starts singing to the music.
    The bartender is amazed, and gives him another drink.

    A man who had been watching all this comes up to the drunk and says, "You've got a million dollar act there. I'll give you $500,000 for them right now."

    "Not for sale," the drunk croaks.

    "Ok, $500,000 just for the frog."

    "Not for sale."

    "Ok, $500,000 just for the rat."

    The drunk agrees, and the man pays him and leaves.

    The bartender says to the drunk, "What did you do that for? You broke up a million dollar act!" "Not really," the drunk says. "You see, the frog's a ventriloquist."

    After a long illness, a woman died and arrived at the Gates of Heaven.
    While she was waiting for Saint Peter to greet her, she peeked through the Gates.
    She saw that it was so beautiful.

    Saint Peter came by, and the woman said to him "This is such a wonderful place! How do I get in?"

    "You have to spell a word", Saint Peter told her.

    "Which word?" the woman asked.


    The woman correctly spelled "Love" and Saint Peter welcomed her into Heaven.

    About six months later, Saint Peter came to the woman and asked her to watch the Gates of Heaven for him that day.
    While the woman was guarding the Gates of Heaven, her husband arrived.

    "I'm surprised to see you," the woman said. "How have you been?"

    "Oh, I've been doing pretty well since you died," her husband told her.

    "I married the beautiful young nurse who took care of you while you were ill. And then I won the lottery.
    I sold the little house you and I lived in and bought a big mansion.
    And my wife and I traveled all around the world. We were on vacation and I went water skiing today.
    I fell, the ski hit my head, and here I am...

    How do I get in?"

    "You have to spell a word", the woman told him.

    "Which word?" her husband asked.

    One particular Christmas, a long time ago, Santa was getting ready
    his annual trip. Alas, there were problems everywhere. Four of his
    elves got sick, and the trainee elves just weren't producing the
    toys as
    fast as the regular ones. Poor Santa was beginning to feel the
    of being behind schedule. Then Mrs. Clause announced that her mom
    coming to visit.

    This stressed Santa even more. When he went to harness the
    reindeer, he
    found that three of them were about to give birth and two had jumped
    fence and were out, heaven knows where.

    More stress. Furthermore, when he began to load the sleigh, one of
    boards cracked, and the toy bag fell to the ground scattering the
    everywhere. Frustrated, Santa went into the house for a cup of
    ciderand a shot of rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered
    that the elves had hidden the liquor, and there was nothing to

    In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the cider pot, and it
    into hundreds of little pieces all over the kitchen floor. He went to
    get the broom and found that mice had eaten the straw end of the
    Just then the doorbell rang, and irritable Santa trudged to the
    door. He
    opened the door, and there was a little angel with a great big
    Christmas tree

    The angel said, very cheerfully, "Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't it
    lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me
    to 'stick it' ?"

    ...... And thus began the tradition of the little angel on top of
    the Christmas tree.

    Recently a teacher, a garbage collector, and a lawyer wound up together at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter informed them that in order to get into Heaven, they would each have to answer one question.St. Peter addressed the teacher and asked, "What was the name of the ship that crashed into the iceberg? They just made a movie about it." The teacher answered quickly, "That would be the Titanic." St. Peter let him through the gate.St. Peter turned to the garbage man and, figuring Heaven didn't REALLY need all the odors that this guy would bring with him, decided to make the question a little harder: "How many people died on the ship?" Fortunately for him, the trash man had just seen the movie and answered, "about 1,500.""That's right! You may enter." St. Peter then turned to the lawyer. "Name them."

    A cat goes to Heaven

    A cat dies and goes to Heaven. God meets him at the gate and says, 'You've been a good cat all of these years. Anything you desire is yours, all you have to do is ask.'

    The cats says, 'Well, I lived all my life with a poor family on a farm and had to sleep on hardwood floors.' God says, 'Say no more.' And instantly, a fluffy pillow appears. A few days later, 6 mice are killed in a tragic accident and they go to Heaven. God meets them at the gate with the same offer that He made the cat.

    The mice said, 'All our lives we've had to run. We've been chased by cats, dogs and even women with brooms. If we could only have a pair of roller skates, we wouldn't have to run anymore.' God says, 'Say no more.' And instantly, each mouse is fitted with a beautiful pair of tiny roller skates.

    About a week later, God decides to check and see how the cat is doing. The cat is sound asleep on his new pillow. God gently wakes him and asks,

    'How are you doing? Are you happy here?' The cat yawns and stretches and says, 'Oh, I've never been happier in my life. And those Meals on Wheels you've been sending over are the best.

    An ode to old age
    There's quite an art to falling apart as the years go by,
    And life doesn't begin at 40. That's a big fat lie.
    My hair's getting thinner, my body is not;
    The few teeth I have are beginning to rot.

    I smell of Vick's-Vapo-Rub, not Chanel # 5;
    My new pacemaker's all that keeps me alive.
    When asked of my past, every detail I'll know,
    But what was I doing 10 minutes ago?

    Well, you get the idea, what more can I say?
    I'm off to read the obituary, like I do every day;
    If my names not there, I'll once again start -
    Perfecting the art of falling apart

    I know I'm not going to like this whole "Getting Old" thing!!!
    A young boy had just
    gotten his driving permit.
    He asked his father,
    who was a minister,
    if they could discuss his use
    of the family car.

    His father said to him,
    "I'll make a deal with you.
    You bring your grades up,
    study your bible a little,
    and get your hair cut,
    then we will talk about it."

    A month later the boy came back
    and again asked his father if
    they could discuss his use of the car.

    His father said, "Son,
    I'm real proud of you.
    You have brought your grades up,
    you've studied your bible diligently,
    but you didn't get a hair cut!"

    The young man waited a moment
    and replied, "You know dad,
    I've been thinking about that.
    You know Samson had long hair,
    Moses had long hair, Noah had long hair,
    and even Jesus had long hair."

    His father replied,
    "Yes son,
    and they walked everywhere they went!"

    A Fireman's
    Night Before Christmas

    Twas the night before Christmas and all through the town,
    the fire siren echoed blaring its sound.
    The firefighters came running from far and from near,
    and raced to the trucks quickly donning their gear.

    And I in my bunkers my boots and my hat,
    jumped to the engine to see where the fire's at.
    Down at the corner of Fifth and of Oak,
    the dispatcher informed us of a house filled with smoke.

    Smoke poured from the sides, from up and from down,
    yet up on the roof there was none to be found.
    So up to the rooftop we raised up a ladder,
    and climbed to the top to see what was the matter.

    I came to the chimney and what did I see,
    but a fellow in red stuck past his knees.
    Well we tugged and we pulled until he came out,
    then he winked with his eye and said with a shout.

    "These darn newfangled chimneys they make them too small,
    for a fellow as I, not skinny at all."
    With a twitch of his nose he dashed to his sleigh,
    and called to his reindeer, "AWAY now, AWAY."

    As we rolled up our hoses he flew out of sight, saying
    "God bless our firefighters" and to all a good night.

    There's nothing the matter with me,
    I'm just as healthy as can be,
    I have arthritis in both knees,
    And when I talk, I talk with a wheeze.
    My pulse is weak, my blood is thin,
    But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.

    All my teeth have had to come out,
    And my diet I hate to think about.
    I'm overweight and I can't get thin,
    But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.

    And arch supports I need for my feet.
    Or I wouldn't be able to go out in the street.
    Sleep is denied me night after night,
    But every morning I find I'm all right.
    My memory's failing, my head's in a spin.
    But I'm awfully well for the shape I'm in.

    Old age is golden I've heard it said,
    But sometimes I wonder, as I go to bed.
    With my ears in a drawer, my teeth in a cup,
    And my glasses on a shelf, until I get up.
    And when sleep dims my eyes, I say to myself,
    Is there anything else I should lay on the shelf?

    The reason I know my Youth has been spent,
    Is my get-up-and-go has got-up-and-went!
    But really I don't mind, when I think with a grin,
    Of all the places my get-up has been.

    I get up each morning and dust off my wits,
    Pick up the paper and read the obits.
    If my name is missing, I'm therefore not dead,
    So I eat a good breakfast and jump back into bed.

    The moral of this as the tale unfolds,
    Is that for you and me, who are growing old.
    It is better to say "I'm fine" with a grin,
    Than to let people know the shape we are in.

    From Jean-Luc Picard (to the tune of "Let it Snow")

    Oh, the vacuum outside is endless,
    unforgiving, cold, and friendless,
    but still we must boldly go--
    make it so, make it so, make it so.

    From William Riker (to the tune of "Deck the Halls")

    Here's a vexing Christmas riddle
    (fa-la-la-la-la, la-la, la-la)
    Why must I play second fiddle?
    (fa-la-la-la-la, la-la, la-la)
    How can I impress Deanna

    From Wesley Crusher (to the tune of "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen")

    I'm at Starfleet Academy and I'd just like to say
    I miss the opportunity to weekly save the day--
    To make things worse I have to be
    In some dumb Christmas play!
    Yes I'm bright, though I'm just a teenaged boy, teenaged boy,
    And the Enterprise was my most favorite toy.

    WIFE: What would you do if I died? Would you get married again?

    HUSBAND: Definitely not!

    WIFE: Why not - don't you like being married?

    HUSBAND: Of course I do.

    WIFE: Then why wouldn't you remarry?

    HUSBAND: Okay, I'd get married again.

    WIFE: You would? (with a hurtful look on her face)

    HUSBAND: (makes audible groan)

    WIFE: Would you sleep with her in our bed?

    HUSBAND: Where else would we sleep?

    WIFE: Would you replace my pictures with hers?

    HUSBAND: That would seem like the proper thing to do.

    WIFE: Would she use my golf clubs?

    HUSBAND: No, she's left-handed.

    WIFE: - - - silence -

    way out in the backwoods the redneck's wife went into labor in the middle of the night, and the doctor was called out to assist in the delivery.Since there was no electricity, the doctor handed the father-to be a lantern and said, "Here, you hold this high so I can see what I'm doing." Soon, a baby boy was brought into the world. "Whoa there," said the doctor."Don't be in a rush to put the lantern down...I think there's yet another one to come."Sure enough, within minutes he had delivered a baby girl. "No, no, don't be in a great hurry to be putting down that lantern. . . It seems there's yet another one in there!" cried the doctor.The Redneck scratched his head in bewilderment, and asked the doctor, "Do you think it's the light that's attractin' 'em?"

    A tour bus driver drives with a bus full of seniors
    down a highway, when he is tapped on his shoulder by
    a little old lady. She offers him a handful of
    peanuts, which he gratefully munches up. After
    approx.15 minutes, she taps him on his shoulder
    again and she hands him another handful of peanuts.
    She repeats this gesture about eight times. At the
    ninth time he asks the little old lady why they do
    not eat the peanuts themselves, whereupon she
    replies that it is not possible because of their old
    teeth, they are not able to chew them. "Why do you
    buy them then?" he asks puzzled. Whereupon the old
    lady answers, 'We just love the chocolate around them.............
