    Re: Ongoing Joke Thread -- Family Friendly Only, Please!

    At a family gathering, Fred's father, grandfather, and great-grandfather bragged that they had all been able to walk on water to the bar across the lake for their first legal drinks. So when Fred's 21st birthday came around, he rowed out to the center of the lake, stepped out of the boat, and nearly drowned. Fred climbed back in and went to see his grandmother.

    "Grandma," he said, "it's my 21st birthday, so why can't I walk across the lake like my father, his father, and his father before him?"

    Granny looked kindly into Fred's eyes and said, "Because they were all born in January, and you were born in August."

    Letter from an Irish Mother to her Son

    Dear Son,
    Just a few lines to let you know I'm still alive. I'm writing this letter slowly because I know you can't read fast. We are all doing very well.


    You won't recognise the house when you get home - we have moved. Your dad read in the newspaper that most accidents happen within 20 miles from your home, so we moved. I won't be able to send you the address because the last Irish family that lived here took the house numbers when they moved so that they wouldn't have to change their address.


    This place is really nice. It even has a washing machine. I'm not sure it works so well though: last week I put a load in and pulled the chain and haven't seen them since.


    Your father's got a really good job now. He's got 500 men under him. He's cutting the grass at the cemetery.


    Your sister Mary had a baby this morning but I haven't found out if it's a boy or a girl, so I don't know whether you are an auntie or an uncle.


    Your brother Tom is still in the army. He's only been there a short while and they've already made him a court martial!


    Your Uncle Patrick drowned last week in a vat of whiskey in the Dublin Brewery. Some of his workmates tried to save him but he fought them off bravely. They cremated him and it took three days to put out the fire.


    I'm sorry to say that your cousin Seamus was arrested while riding his bicycle last week. They are charging him with dope peddling.


    I went to the doctor on Thursday and your father went with me. The doctor put a small tube in my mouth and told me not to talk for ten minutes. Your father offered to buy it from him.


    The weather isn't bad here. It only rained twice this week, first for three days and then for four days. Monday was so windy one of the chickens laid the same egg four times.


    We had a letter from the under-taker. He said if the last payment on your Grandmother's plot wasn't paid in seven days, up she comes.


    About that coat you wanted me to send you, your Uncle Stanley said it would be too heavy to send in the mail with the buttons on, so we cut them off and put them in the pockets.


    John locked his keys in the car yesterday. We were really worried because it took him two hours to get me and your father out.


    Three of your friends went off a bridge in a pick-up truck. Ralph was driving. He rolled down the window and swam to safety. Your other two friends were in back. They drowned because they couldn't get the tailgate down.


    There isn't much more news at this time. Nothing much has happened.


    Your loving Mum



    P.S. I was going to send you some money but I had already sealed the envelope.

    So instead, I'll tell you about the two vowels who went out to dinner together. They formed an iodate.

    That's a gas! (as in lol amusing; american english idiom)

    So, how often do you share these chemistry jokes? Periodically?

    I always wondered. If H20 is the formula for water, what is the formula for ice? H20 cubed?

    A helicopter was flying around above Seattle when an electrical malfunction disabled all of the aircraft's electronic navigation and communications equipment.

    Due to the clouds and haze, the pilot could not determine the helicopter's position. The pilot saw a tall building, flew toward it, circled, and held up a handwritten sign that said "WHERE AM I?" in large letters. People in the tall building quickly responded to the aircraft, drew a large sign, and held it in a building window. Their sign said "YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER."

    The pilot smiled, waved, looked at his map, determined the course to steer to SEATAC airport, and landed safely. After they were on the ground, the copilot asked the pilot how he had done it.

    "I knew it had to be the Microsoft Building, because they gave me a technically correct but completely useless answer."

    The computer swallowed Grandpa,
    Yes, honestly it’s true!
    He pressed 'control and 'enter'
    And disappeared from view.
    It devoured him completely,
    The thought just makes me squirm.
    He must have caught a virus
    Or been eaten by a worm.
    I've searched through the recycle bin
    And files of every kind;
    I've even used the Internet,
    But nothing did I find.
    In desperation, I asked Mr. Google
    My searches to refine.
    The reply from him was negative,
    Not a thing was found 'online.'
    So, if inside your 'Inbox,'
    My Grandpa you should see,
    Please 'Copy, Scan' and 'Paste' him,
    And send him back to me.

    Re: Ongoing Joke Thread -- Family Friendly Only, Please!

    Stole this from my friend, Hammy:

    An Antartian boy and his father were visiting a mall. They were amazed by almost everything they saw, but especially by two shiny, silver walls that could move apart and back together again.

    The boy asked his father, "What is this, Father?"

    The father [never having seen an elevator] responded "Son, I have never seen anything like this in my life, I don't know what it is."

    While the boy and his father were watching wide-eyed, an old lady in a wheel chair rolled up to the moving walls and pressed a button.
    The walls opened and the lady rolled between them into a small room.
    The walls closed and the boy and his father watched small circles of lights with numbers above the walls light up.

    They continued to watch the circles light up in the reverse direction.
    The walls opened up again and a beautiful 24-year-old woman stepped out.

    The father said to his son, "Go get your mother."
    LilBambi says thanks for this.

    Here's another one from Hammy:

    A lady walks into the drugstore and asks the pharmacist for some arsenic.
    "Ma'am, what do you want with arsenic?"
    "To kill my husband."
    "I can't sell you arsenic to kill a person!"
    The lady lays down a photo of a man and a woman in a compromising position.
    The man is her husband and the woman is the pharmacist's wife.
    He takes the photo, and nods.

    "I didn't realize you had a prescription!"

    Wrong Email

    A Minnesota couple decided to vacation to Florida during the winter. They planned to stay at the very same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday. His wife would fly down the following day.


    The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an e-mail to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her e-mail address, and without realizing his error, he sent the e-mail.


    Meanwhile.....somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband's funeral. He was a minister of many years who was called home to glory following a sudden heart attack. The widow decided to check her e-mail, expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she fainted.


    The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:


    To: My Loving Wife
    Subject: I've Arrived
    Date: 16 May 2003
    I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send e-mails to your loved ones. I've just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then! Hope your journey is not as uneventful as mine was.
    P.S. Sure is hot down here!

    Hope this wasn't already used in this thread. I haven't had time to read them all.

    Re: Ongoing Joke Thread -- Family Friendly Only, Please!

    One of my favorite IT jokes:

    A few years ago I was hired to replace a retiring veteran in IT, and on his last day, he handed me 3 envelopes. I asked about these and he told me that when things got crazy and I didnt know what to do, open the first envelope and it would help me out. Then he said that after a while I would run into another bind and for me to open the 2nd envelope for guidance. He then told me that I would no doubt encounter another crisis and for me to open the 3rd envelope when that happened.

    So a few months down the road a situation came up and I was clueless so I opened the first envelope. It simply said, " Tell them you are still new to the position and it takes time to build your own footprint in this business but you are almost there." I did this and to my amazement it bought me some relief from upper management. A few months later, I again had things go haywire and opened the 2nd envelope. It simply said, " Blame everything on me. Tell them I had gotten soft in my execution and it must be the reason for my retirement." I felt bad to do this but he suggested it so I did and it worked amazingly well.

    Finally a good bit of time passed and I again ran into a bind and just didnt know what to do and opened the final envelope. I slumped in my chair as it said: "Prepare 3 envelopes."

    Re: Ongoing Joke Thread -- Family Friendly Only, Please!

    A couple had two little boys ages 8 and 10, who were EXTREMLY mischievous. They were always getting into trouble and their parents knew that if any mischief occurred in their town, their sons would get the blame. The boys' mother heard that a clergyman in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys. The clergyman agreed, and asked to see them individually.

    So, the mother sent her 8-year-old first, in the morning, with the older boy to see the clergyman in the afternoon.

    The clergyman, a huge man with a booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, "Where is God?" They boy's mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there with his mouth hanging open. The clergyman repeated the question. "Where is God?" Again, the boy made no attempt to answer. So the clergyman raised his voice some more and shook his finger in the boy's face and bellowed. "Where is God!?"

    The boy screamed and bolted from the room. He ran directly home and dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him. When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked, "What happened?" The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, "We are in big trouble this time! God is missing and they think we did it!".

    I was arrested yesterday on suspicion of murdering my orchestra conductor.
    Apparently because I had bought a Stradivarius in 2002, an Amati in 1998 and a Guarneri in 1990, the Police said I had a history of violins.

    As a trucker stops for a red light, a blonde catches up. She jumps out of her car, runs up to his truck, and knocks on the door. The trucker lowers the window, and she says "Hi, my name is Heather and you are losing some of your load." The trucker ignores her and proceeds down the street.

    When the truck stops for another red light, the girl catches up again. She jumps out of her car, runs up and knocks on the door. Again, the trucker lowers the window. As if they've never spoken, the blonde says brightly, "Hi my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!" Shaking his head, the trucker ignores her again and continues down the street.

    At the third red light, the same thing happens again. All out of breath, the blonde gets out of her car, runs up, knocks on the truck door. The trucker lowers the window. Again she says "Hi, my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!"

    When the light turns green the trucker revs up and races to the next light. When he stops this time, he hurriedly gets out of the truck, and runs back to the blonde. He knocks on her window, and as she lowers it, he says " Hi, my name is Kevin, it's winter in Canada and I'm driving the SALT TRUCK!"

    Re: Ongoing Joke Thread -- Family Friendly Only, Please!

    One day, three men were hiking and unexpectedly came upon a large raging, violent river. They needed to get to the other side, but had no idea of how to do so.

    The first man prayed to God, saying, "Please God, give me the strength to cross this river." *Poof!* God gave him big arms and strong legs, and he was able to swim across the river in about two hours, after almost drowning a couple of times.

    Seeing this, the second man prayed to God, saying, "Please God, give me the strength ..and the tools to cross this river." *Poof!*

    God gave him a rowboat and he was able to row across the river in about an hour, after almost capsizing the boat a couple of times.

    The third man had seen how this worked out for the other two, so he also prayed to God saying, "Please God, give me the strength and the tools...And the intelligence... To cross this river." And *Poof!* God turned him into a woman. She looked at the map, hiked upstream a couple of hundred yards, then walked across the bridge.
