Restroom humor

This is too funny not to send…….

I was barely sitting down when I heard a voice from the other stall saying:
“Hi, how are you?”
I’m not the type to start a conversation in the men’s restrooms at a rest stop but, I don’t know what got into me, so I
answered, somewhat embarrassedly: “Doin Just Fine!”
And the other guy says: “So what are you up to?”
What kind of question is that? At that point, I’m thinking this is too bizarre so I say: “Uhhh I’m like you, just traveling
east!”
At this point I am just trying to get out as fast as I can when I hear another question.
“Can I come over to your place after while?”
Ok, this question is just wacky but I figured I could just be polite and end the conversation.
I tell him, “Well, I have company over so today is a bad day for me!”
Then I hear the guy say nervously…

“LISTEN, I’ll have
to call you back.
There’s an idiot in the other stall who keeps
answering all my questions!”

Maxine updated

After the Maxine jokes there is a summary on how she was created and a photo of her creator. More from the gal everyone loves and admires,

and you finally get to meet her creator at the end.

AFTER THAT THERE ARE NEW ONES NEVER SEEN BEFORE..


Hummmmmm! How True.

Creator
Of Maxine

John Wagner, Hallmark artist since 1970, says Maxine was inspired by his mother, his maiden aunts and his grandmother, the woman who bought him art lessons when ‘fill in the pumpkins’ was about the extent of his art classes at

St. John ‘s Catholic School in Leonia N.J.

John remembers doodling as a preschooler and says both his grandmother his mother encouraged his artistic interests. He eventually attended the Vesper George Schoolof Art
in Boston and landed at Hallmark as part of a new artists group.But it was the birth of the humorous Shoebox Greetings (a tiny little division of Hallmark) in 1986 that added a new dimension to John ‘s professional life. The Shoebox way of seeing the world unleashed

his talents and he created Maxine.

Why the name ‘Maxine’? ‘People at Shoebox started referring to the character as ‘ John Wagner’s old lady,’ and I knew that would get me into trouble with my wife,’ John says.

The Shoebox team had a contest among themselves to name the character and three of the approximately 30 entries suggested ‘Maxine’. John says the name is perfect.

John , who says he’s humbled by such acceptance of Maxine, admits he’s proud of her.

Now you know the story of how Maxine came to be.

SOME NEW MAXINES !
I haven’t seen these before. Good ones.

A world without lawy ers?

AMBULANCE CHASING LAWYERS THREATEN LEGAL ACTION
IF ACCIDENT VICTIM REFUSES TO SUE
By Flash Gorman

New York, NY – The American legal system was thrown into turmoil yesterday
when a man decided not to go ahead with a legal claim. Carl Burgess from
New York was involved in a road traffic accident early last month and
initially was going to sue for damages. Said Carl “The lawyer guy seemed to
think it was a good idea and I was kinda impressed at the way he’d run four
blocks behind the ambulance, so I gave him the go ahead.”

So far a typical American story, but events took a bizarre turn when Carl
decided to drop his case. “I thought about it for a while and decided it
wasn’t worth making a claim. I only had a few bruises and my car took a
couple of dents. I thought that if I claimed then I would be pushing
everyone else’s premiums up and that just wouldn’t be fair. I’ve knocked
most of the dents out my car, so I reckon it’s time to move on”.

Unsurprisingly Carl’s decision has been heavily criticized by the American
legal system. A spokesman from, top US law firm, Shyster and Dodge made the
following comments.

“Whilst we appreciate Mr Burgess’ right to change his mind, we are worried
that this may be the thin end of the wedge for the American legal
profession.” explained the commentator.

“People have to appreciate that lawyers need to make a living and without
easy pickings like auto accidents, some firms may be unable to survive. I
don’t wish to alarm people unnecessarily but in a worst case scenario we
could be looking at a world without lawyers. And I think I can safely say
that no-one wants to see that.”

Mindful of this worrying prospect, lawyers are working to pass a new Bill
through Congress. Under this proposed legislation, lawyers would be able to
pursue a claim of behalf of a plaintiff without the plaintiff’s permission
being given. This legislation could only be applied where there “is a clear
and present danger that the lawyers revenue would be adversely affected by
the claim being dropped.”

HOW MANY ... TO CHANGE A LIGHTBULB

A lawyer's answer to the question:
Answer: Such number as may be deemed necessary to perform the
stated task in a timely and efficient manner within the stricture
of the following agreement: Whereas the party of the first part,
also known as 'Lawyer,' and the party of the second part, also
known as 'Lightbulb,' do hereby and forthwith agree to a
transaction wherein the party of the second part (Lightbulb) shall
be removed from the current position. The aforementioned removal
transaction shall include, but not limited to, the following steps:
(1) The party of the first part (Lawyer) shall, with or without
elevation at his option, by means of a chair, step stool, ladder,
or any other means of elevation, grasp the party of the second part
(Lightbulb) and rotate the party of the second part (Lightbulb) in
a counter-clockwise direction, this point being nonnegotiable.
(2) Upon reaching a point where the party of the second part
(Lightbulb) becomes separated from the party of the third part
(Receptacle),the party of the first part(Lawyer) shall have the
option of disposing of the party of the second part (Lightbulb) in
a manner consistent with all applicable state, local and federal
statutes.

Double Negatives
Professor: Although in modern English the double negative is usually
taken to mean an affirmative, in many linguistic contexts the double
negative is an intensified negative, as the double affirmative is
"always" an intensified affirmative. There is no known case of a double
affirmative being used as a negative.

Student: Yeah, right.

I was having lunch with my nine-year-old son, when the waitress came by
to ask if we wanted a drink. "I'll have a decapitated coffee," my son
said in all seriousness. The waitress smiled and poured him a cup.

Not to be outdone, she later returned with the coffeepot a few minutes
later and said, "Can I put a head on that for you?"

Government Pipe Specifications
1. All pipe is to be made of a long hole, surrounded by metal or plastic
centered around the hole.

2. All pipe is to be hollow throughout the entire length - do not use holes
of different length than the pipe.

3. The I.D. (inside diameter) of all pipe must not exceed the O.D.
(outside diameter) - otherwise the hole will be on the outside.

4. All pipe is to be supplied with nothing in the hole so that water, steam
or other stuff can be put inside at a later date.

5. All pipe should be supplied without rust - this can be more readily
applied at the job site.
N.B. Some Vendors are now able to supply pre-rusted pipe. If available in
your area, this product is recommended as it will save a lot of time on the
job site.

6. All pipe over 500 ft (153m) in length should have the words "long pipe"
clearly painted on each end, so the Contractor will know it is a long pipe.

7. Pipe over 2 miles (3.2 km) in length must have the words "very long
pipe" painted in the middle, so the Contractor will not have to walk the
entire length of the pipe to determine whether or not it is a long pipe or a
very long pipe.

8. All pipe over 6" (152 mm) in diameter must have the words "large pipe"
painted on it, so the Contractor will not mistake it for small pipe.

9. Flanges must be used on all pipe. Flanges must have holes for bolts
quite separate from the big hole in the middle.

10. When ordering 90 degrees, 45 degrees or 30 degrees elbow, be sure to
specify right hand or left hand; otherwise you will end up going the wrong
way.

11. Be sure to specify to your vendor whether you want level, uphill or
downhill pipe. If you use downhill pipe for going uphill, the water will
flow the wrong way.

12. All couplings should have either right hand or left hand thread, but do
not mix the threads - otherwise, as the coupling is being screwed on one
pipe, it is unscrewed from the other.

During the wedding rehearsal, the groom approached the pastor with an
unusual offer.

"Look, I'll give you $100 if you'll change the wedding vows. When you
get to me and the part where I'm to promise to 'love, honor and obey'
and 'forsaking all others, be faithful to her forever,' I'd appreciate
it if you'd just leave that part out." He passed the minister a $100
bill and walked away satisfied.

It is now the day of the wedding, and the bride and groom have moved to
that part of the ceremony where the vows are exchanged. When it comes
time for the groom's vows, the pastor looks the young man in the eye and
says:

"Will you promise to prostrate yourself before her, obey her every
command and wish, serve her breakfast in bed every morning of your life
and swear eternally before God and your lovely wife that you will not
ever even look at another woman, as long as you both shall live?"

The groom gulped and looked around, and said in a tiny voice, "I do."

The groom then leaned toward the pastor and hissed, "I thought we had a
deal."

The pastor pressed the $100 bill into the groom's hand and whispered
back, "She made me a much better offer."

NEW Barbie dolls

Finally a Barbie I can relate to. At long last, here are some NEW Barbie dolls to coincide with her and OUR aging gracefully. These are a bit more realistic…

1. Bifocals Barbie. Comes with her own set of blended-lens fashion frames in six wild colors (half-frames too!), neck chain, and large-print editions of Vogue and Martha Stewart Living.

2. Hot Flash Barbie. Press Barbie’s bellybutton and watch her face turn beet red while tiny drops of perspiration appear on her forehead. Comes with handheld fan and tiny tissues.

3.. Facial Hair Barbie. As Barbie’s hormone levels shift, see her whiskers grow. Available with teensy tweezers and magnifying mirror.

4. Flabby Arms Barbie. Hide Barbie’s droopy triceps with these new,roomier-sleeved gowns. Good news on the tummy front, two-MuMus with tummy-support panels are included.

5. Bunion Barbie. Years of disco dancing in stiletto heels have definitely taken their toll on Barbie’s dainty arched feet. Soothe her sores with the pumice stone and plasters, then slip on soft terry mules.

6. No-More-Wrinkles Barbie. Erase those pesky crow’s-feet and lip lines with a tube of Skin Sparkle-Spackle, from Barbie’s own line of exclusive age-blasting cosmetics.

7. Soccer Mom Barbie. All that experience as a cheerleader is really paying off as Barbie dusts off her old high school megaphone to root for Babs and Ken, Jr.. Comes with minivan in robin-egg blue or white and cooler filled with doughnut holes and fruit punch.

8. Mid-life Crisis Barbie. It’s time to ditch Ken. Barbie needs a change, and Alonzo (her personal trainer) is just what the doctor ordered, along with Prozac. They’re hopping in her new red Miata and heading for the Napa Valley to open a B&B. Includes a real tape of “Breaking Up Is Hard to Do.”

9. Divorced Barbie. Sells for$ 199.99. Comes with Ken’s house, Ken’s car, and Ken’s boat.

10. Recovery Barbie. Too many parties have finally caught up with the ultimate party girl. Now she does Twelve Steps instead of dance steps. Clean and sober, she’s going to meetings religiously.. Comes with a little copy of The Big Book and a six-pack of Diet Coke.

11. Post-Menopausal Barbie. This Barbie wets her pants when she sneezes, forgets where she puts things, and cries a lot. She is sick and tired of Ken sitting on the couch watching the tube, clicking through the channels. Comes with Depends and Kleenex. As a bonus this year, the book “Getting In Touch with Your Inner Self” is included.
