    A Jewish man took his Passover lunch to eat outside in the park. He sat
    down on a bench and began eating. Since Jews do not eat leavened bread
    during the eight day holiday, he was eating Matzoh, a flat crunchy
    unleavened bread that has dozens of perforations.

    A little while later a blind man came by and sat down next to him.
    Feeling neighborly, the Jewish man passed a sheet of matzo to the blind

    The blind man handled the matzo for a few minutes, looked puzzled, and
    finally exclaimed, "Who wrote this carp?"


      Blind Trust
      There's a guy with a Doberman Pinscher and a guy with a Chihuahua. The guy
      with the Doberman Pinscher says to the guy with a Chihuahua, "Let's go over
      to that restaurant and get something to eat."

      The guy with the Chihuahua says, "We can't go in there. We've got dogs with

      The guy with the Doberman Pinscher says, "Just follow my lead." They walk
      over to the restaurant, the guy with the Doberman Pinscher puts on a pair
      of dark glasses, and he starts to walk in.

      A guy at the door says, "Sorry, Mac, no pets allowed."

      The guy with the Doberman Pinscher says, "You don't understand. This is my
      guide dog."

      The guy at the door says, "A Doberman Pinscher?"

      He says, "Yes, they're using them now, they're very good."

      The guy at the door says, "Come on in."

      The guy with the Chihuahua figures, "What the heck," so he puts on a pair
      of dark glasses and starts to walk in. The guy at the door says, "Sorry,
      pal, no pets allowed."

      The guy with the Chihuahua says, "You don't understand. This is my guide dog."

      The guy at the door says, "A Chihuahua?"

      The guy with the Chihuahua says, "You mean they gave me a Chihuahua?"

              A "lesson" for those who cherry-pick from the Good Book to suit their own

              Dr. Laura Schlessinger is a US radio personality who dispenses advice to
              people who call in to her radio show. Recently, she said that, as an
              observant Orthodox Jew, homosexuality is an abomination according to
              Leviticus 18:22, and cannot be condoned under any circumstance. The
              following is an open letter to Dr. Laura penned by a US resident, which
              was posted on the Internet. It's funny, as well as informative:

              Dear Dr. Laura:

              Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have
              learned a great deal from your show, and try to share that knowledge with
              as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual
              lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly
              states it to be an abomination. End of debate.

              I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some of the other
              specific laws and how to follow them.

              1. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a
              pleasing odour for the Lord - Lev.1:9. The problem is my neighbors. They
              claim the odour is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

              2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus
              21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for

              3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her
              period of menstrual uncleanliness - Lev.15:19-24. The problem is, how do I
              tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offence.

              4. Lev. 25:44 states that I may indeed possess slaves, both male and
              female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of
              mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you
              clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

              5. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2
              clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill
              him myself?

              6. A friend of mine feels that even though eating shellfish is an
              abomination - Lev. 11:10, it is a lesser abomination than homosexuality. I
              don't agree. Can you settle this?

              7. Lev. 21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a
              defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my
              vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle room here?

              8. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed, including the hair
              around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by
              Lev.19:27. How should they die?

              9. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me
              unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

              10. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev. 19:19 by planting two different
              crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two
              different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse
              and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble
              of getting the whole town together to stone them? -Lev.24:10-16. Couldn't
              we just burn them to death at a private family affair like we do with
              people who sleep with their in-laws? (Lev.20:14)

              I know you have studied these things extensively, so I am confident you
              can help. Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and

              Your devoted disciple and adoring fan, Jack


                This was voted "Women's Favorite Email of the Year"

                A man was sick and tired of going to work every day while his wife
                stayed home. He wanted her to see what he went through so he prayed:

                "Dear Lord: I go to work every day and put in 8 hours while my wife
                merely stays at home. I want her to know what I go through, so please
                allow her body to switch with mine for a day. Amen."

                God, in his infinite wisdom, granted the man's wish.

                The next morning, sure enough, the man awoke as a woman.

                He arose, cooked breakfast for his mate, awakened the kids, set out their
                school clothes, fed them breakfast, packed their lunch, drove them to
                school, came home and picked up the dry cleaning, took it to the cleaners
                and stopped at the bank to make a deposit, went grocery shopping, then
                drove home to put away the groceries, paid the bills and balance the check
                book. He cleaned the cat's litter box and bathed the dog.
                And it was already 1 P.M. and he hurried to make the beds, do the
                laundry, vacuum, dust, and sweep and mop the kitchen floor.

                Ran to the school to pick up the kids and got into an argument with them
                on the way home. Set out cookies and milk and got the kids organized to
                do their homework, then set up the ironing board and watched TV while he
                did the ironing.

                At 4:30 he began peeling potatoes and washing vegetables for salad,
                breaded the pork chops and snapped fresh beans for supper.

                After supper he cleaned the kitchen, ran the dishwasher, folded laundry,
                bathed the kids, and put them to bed.

                At 9 P.M. he was exhausted and, though his daily chores weren't finished,
                he went to bed where he was expected to make love which he managed to get
                through without complaint.

                The next morning he awoke and immediately knelt by the bed and said,
                "Lord, I don't know what I was thinking. I was so wrong to envy my wife's
                being able to stay home all day. Please, oh please, let us trade back."

                The Lord, in his infinite wisdom, replied, "My son, I feel you have
                learned your lesson and I will be happy to change things back to the way
                they were. You'll just have to wait nine months, though.
                You got pregnant last night."

                    A squad of American soldiers was patrolling the Iraqi border, when they came across a badly mangled dead body. As they got closer, they found it was an Iraqi soldier. A short distance up the road, they found a badly mangled American soldier in a ditch on the other side of the road, struggling to breathe. They ran to him, cradled his bruised head and asked him what had happened.

                    "Well," he whispered, "I was walking down this road, armed to the teeth when I came across this heavily armed Iraqi border guard. I looked him right in the eye and shouted, 'Saddam Hussein is a moronic, deceitful, lying piece of trash!'"

                    "He looked me right in the eye and shouted back, 'George W. Bush is a moronic, deceitful, lying piece of trash too!'"

                    "We were standing there shaking hands when the truck hit us."


                      A chicken farmer wakes up and goes to check on his prize cock. As he nears the hutch he can see to legs sticking up in the air. Its on its back, dead. Devastated the farmer wanders about crying in anguish. This cock, with the best tackle that had ever been seen, had been sorting out his hens for years.

                      The farmer looks through the local classifieds for a new cock. He finds an ad, phones the number and arranges to see this cock that afternoon.

                      He pulls up in his van that afternoon at the address. A man comes over 'are you here about the cock? "Yes" replies the farmer.

                      "Follow me"

                      He follows the man to this huge hutch in which is this huge cock strutting about with enormous reproductive organs.

                      "Jesus" says the farmer. "He's amazing, how much?

                      "A fiver"

                      "Why so cheap? Is he sterile?"

                      "No, far from it"

                      "Whats the problem with him?"

                      "He's a talking cock"

                      "I'll take him"

                      He bundles his new cock into the back of his van and goes home. The cock is in the back the whole journey shouting "I need some birds, my loins are hot for your hens"

                      They arrive, the farmer lets the cock out and he struts about shouting "where are they, let me at 'em"

                      The farmer points in the direction of 5 huge hen coops about 100ft in length. The cock dissapears in a cloud of dust in the hens direction. The farmer retires to his house for a cup of tea. 2 hours later there is a knock at the door. Looking distinctly knackered and short of a few feathers the cock comes into the kitchen. The farmer tells him he should take a nap. "What" screams the cock "I'm not finished" "But you've shagged 500 hens?"

                      "I'm not finished" yells the cock "You must have some more birds"

                      "Well, there's the ducks by the pond"

                      A huge cloud of dust and the cock is gone.

                      An hour later the cock returns, nearly bald and gasping.

                      "My god, are you alright ?" says the farmer. "Come in and have some supper"

                      "No way" says the cock "I've still got a full sack. Have you got any other birds?

                      "Well" says the farmer "You could try the geese, but be carefull, they're big birds"

                      "Great" says the cock "Where are they?"

                      The farmer points to the hill behind the house.

                      A huge cloud of dust and the farmer is on his own again.

                      The farmer has his supper and falls asleep. The next morning the farmer gets up, goes outside and looks for his cock. He is nowhere to be found. The farmer looks towards the hill and can see vultures circling above.

                      "Oh my god" he runs over and as he approaches he can see 2 legs pointing up to the sky. The cock is on its back.

                      "Aaah noooo" shouts the farmer. "The geese have killed him"

                      Distraught, he goes over to the cock, leans down and says "Cock, are you ok?

                      The cock opens an eye and whispers "F**k off, they're just about to land"
