        A father watched his daughter playing in the garden. He smiled as he
        reflected on how sweet and innocent his little girl was. Suddenly she just
        stopped and stared at the ground. He went over to her and noticed she was
        looking at two spiders mating. "Daddy, what are those two spiders doing?"
        she asked.

        "They're mating," her father replied.

        "What do you call the spider on top, Daddy?" she asked.

        "That's a daddy longlegs." Her father answered.

        "So, the other one is a mommy longlegs?" the little girl asked.

        "No," her father replied. "Both of them are daddy longlegs."

        The little girl thought for a moment, then took her foot and stomped them
        flat. "Well, we're not having THAT sort of sh1t in our garden."


          Once upon a time... there was a frog who lived in a lake all by himself. He
          had been given special powers by a local witch. One day he finally ventured
          out of the lake to get his first glimpse of the world outside. The first
          thing he saw was a bear chasing a rabbit and so he called out to them and
          asked them to stop.

          Then he said to them: "I am a magical frog and since you are the first two
          animals I have ever seen, I am going to grant you both three wishes. You
          will each take turns using them and you have to use them now."

          The bear (being greedy) went first. I would like for every bear in this
          forest to be female except for me".
          A magical sound and it was done.

          Then the rabbit. "I would like a helmet."

          This confused both the frog and the bear, but after a magical sound there
          was a helmet.

          It was the bear's turn again. "I would like for every bear in the
          neighboring forest to be female." A magical sound and it was done.

          The rabbit went again. "I would like a motorcycle."

          Both the frog and the bear wondered why the rabbit didn't just ask for a lot
          of money with which he could buy himself a motorcycle, but after a magical
          sound there was a motorcycle.

          The bear took his last wish. "I would like for all the bears in the world to
          be female except for me." A magical sound and it was done.

          The rabbit then put on his helmet, started up the motorcycle, and said "I
          wish the bear was gay" and then took off like a bat out of hell........

                Instead of Astrological Signs, how about these .. What's Your Business Sign?

                1) MARKETING
                You are ambitious yet stupid. You chose a marketing degree to avoid having
                to study in college, concentrating instead on drinking and socializing
                which is pretty much what your job responsibilities are now. Least
                compatible with Sales.

                2) SALES
                Laziest of all signs, often referred to as "marketing without a degree."
                You are also self-centered and paranoid. Unless someone calls you and begs
                you to take their money, you like to avoid contact with customers so you
                can "concentrate on the big picture." You seek admiration for your golf
                game throughout your life.

                3) TECHNOLOGY
                Unable to control anything in your personal life, you are instead content
                to completely control everything that happens at your workplace. Often
                even YOU don't understand what you are saying but who the hell can tell.
                It is written that Geeks shall inherit the Earth.

                4) ENGINEERING
                One of only two signs that actually studied in school. It is said that
                engineers place ninety percent of all Personal Ads. You can be happy with
                yourself; your office is full of all the latest "ergodynamic" gadgets.
                However, we all know what is really causing your "carpal tunnel syndrome."

                5) ACCOUNTING
                The only other sign that studied in school. You are mostly immune from
                office politics. You are the most feared person in the organization;
                combined with your extreme organizational traits, the majority of rumors
                concerning you say that you are completely insane.

                6) HUMAN RESOURCES
                Ironically, given your access to confidential information, you tend to be
                the biggest gossip within the organization. Possibly the only other person
                that does less work than marketing, you are unable to return any calls
                today because you have to get a haircut, have lunch AND then mail a

                Catty, cutthroat, yet completely spineless, you are destined to remain at
                your current job for the rest of your life. Unable to make a single
                decision you tend to measure your worth by the number of meetings you can
                schedule for yourself. Best suited to marry other "Middle Managers" as
                everyone in your social circle is a "Middle Manager."

                8) SENIOR MANAGEMENT
                (See above - Same sign, different title)

                9) CUSTOMER SERVICE
                Bright, cheery, positive, you are a fifty-cent cab ride from taking your
                own life. As children very few of you asked your parents for a little
                cubicle for your room and a headset so you could pretend to play "Customer
                Service." Continually passed over for promotions, your best bet is to
                sleep with your manager.

                10) CONSULTANT
                Lacking any specific knowledge, you use acronyms to avoid revealing your
                utter lack of experience. You have convinced yourself that your "skills"
                are in demand and that you could get a higher paying job with any other
                organization in a heartbeat. You will spend an eternity contemplating
                these career opportunities without ever taking direct action.

                11) RECRUITER, "HEADHUNTER"
                As a "person" that profits from the success of others, most people who
                actually work for a living disdain you. Paid on commission and susceptible
                to alcoholism, your ulcers and frequent heart attacks correspond directly
                with fluctuations in the stock market.

                12) PARTNER, PRESIDENT, CEO
                You are brilliant or lucky. Your inability to figure out complex systems
                such as the fax machine suggest the latter.

                13) CIVIL SERVANT
                Paid to take days off. Government workers are genius inventors, like the
                invention of new Holidays. They usually suffer from deep depression or
                anxiety and usually commit serious crimes while on the job...Thus the term
                "GO POSTAL"

                    On hearing that her elderly grandfather had just passed away, Jenny went
                    straight round to visit her grandmother. When she asked how her grandpa
                    had died, her gran explained,

                    "He had a heart attack during sex on Sunday morning."

                    Horrified, Jenny suggested that shagging at the age of 94 was surely
                    asking for trouble.

                    "Oh no," her gran replied, "we had sex every Sunday morning, in time with
                    the church bells - in with the dings and out with the dongs."

                    She paused, and wiped away a tear. "If it wasn't for that damn ice cream
                    van going past, he'd still be alive."

                      thieves whilst out on your BMXs.
