    The Married Couple and the Box
    A man and a woman were married for 40 years. When they first got married the man said, "I am putting a box under the bed. You must promise never to look in it."
    In all their 40 years of marriage the woman never looked. However on the afternoon of their 40th anniversary curiosity got the best of her and she lifted the lid and peeked inside. In the box were 3 empty beer bottles and $1874.25 in small bills.
    She closed the box and put it back under the bed. Now that she knew what was in the box, she was doubly curious as to why.
    That evening they were out for a special dinner at their favorite restaurant. After dinner the woman could no longer contain her curiosity and she confessed, saying: "I am so sorry. For all these years I kept my promise and never looked. However today the temptation was too much and I gave in. But now I need to know why do you keep the bottles in the box?"
    The man thought for a while and said: "I guess after all these wonderful years you deserve to know the truth: "Whenever I was unfaithful to you I put an empty beer bottle in the box under the bed to remind myself not to do it again."
    The woman was shocked, but said: "I am very disappointed and saddened but I guess after all those years away from home on the road, temptation does happen and I guess that 3 times is not that bad considering the years."
    They hugged and made their peace.
    A little while later the woman asked the man: "Why do you have all that money in the box?"
    To which the man answered: "Whenever the box filled with empties, I cashed them in."

    Sharing pain
    A married couple went to the hospital together to have their baby delivered. Upon their arrival, the doctor said he had invented a machine that would transfer a portion of the mother's labor pain to the father.
    He asked if they were willing to try it out, and they both agreed enthusiastically. The doctor set the knob to 10% for starters, explaining that even 10% was probably more pain than the father had ever experienced before.
    But as labor progressed, the husband felt fine, so he asked the doctor to bump it up a notch. The doctor then adjusted the machine to 20% pain transfer.
    The husband was still feeling fine, so the doctor upped the percentage to 50%, then finally to 100%, since the wife was obviously benefiting from the transfer.
    The wife delivered a healthy baby with virtually no pain. She and her husband were ecstatic. When they got home, the mailman was dead on their porch.

    Suits you..
    Dorothy is very upset as her husband Albert had just passed away.
    She goes to the mortuary to look at her dearly departed & the instant she sees him she starts wailing & crying.
    One of the attendants rushes up to comfort her. Through her tears she explains that she was upset because Albert was wearing a black suit & that it was his dying wish to be buried in a blue suit.
    The attendant apologises & explains that they always put the bodies in a black suit as a matter of course, but he'd see what he could do. The next day Dorothy returns to the mortuary to have one last moment with Albert before his funeral the following day. When the attendant pulls back the curtain, Dorothy manages to smile through her tears as Albert is now wearing a smart blue suit.
    She asks the attendant "how did you manage to get hold of that beautiful blue suit?" "Well, yesterday afternoon after you left, a man about your husband's size was brought in & he was wearing a blue suit. His wife explained that she was very upset as he had always wanted to be buried in a black suit" the attendant replied. "And after that it was simply a matter of swapping the heads around."

    The Check-up
    A woman accompanied her husband to the doctor's office. After his checkup, the doctor called the wife into his office alone. He said, "Your husband is suffering from a very severe disease, combined with horrible stress. If you don't do the following, your husband will die:
    "Each morning, fix him a healthy breakfast. Be pleasant, and make sure he is in a good mood. For lunch make him a nutritious meal he can take to work. And for dinner, prepare an especially nice meal for him. Don't burden him with chores, as this could further his stress. Don't discuss your problems with him; it will only make his stress worse. Try to relax your husband in the evening by wearing lingerie and giving him plenty of back rubs.Encourage him to watch some type of team sporting event on television. And, most importantly, make love with your husband several times a week and satisfy his every whim. If you can do this for the next 10 months to a year, I think your husband will regain his health completely."
    On the way home, the husband asked his wife, "What did the doctor say?"
    "You're going to die," she replied.

    A judge was interviewing a woman regarding her pending divorce, and asked, "What are the grounds for your divorce?"
    She replied, "About four acres and a nice little home in the middle of the property with a stream running by."
    "No," he said, "I mean what is the foundation of this case?"
    "It is made of concrete, brick and mortar," she responded.
    "I mean," he continued, "What are your relations like?"
    "I have an aunt and uncle living here in town, and so do my husband's parents."
    He said, "Do you have a real grudge?"
    "No," she replied, "We have a two-car carport and have never really needed one."
    "Please," he tried again, "is there any infidelity in your marriage?"
    "Yes, both my son and daughter have stereo sets. We don't necessarily like the music, but the answer to your questions is yes."
    "Ma'am, does your husband ever beat you up?"
    "Yes," she responded, "about twice a week he gets up earlier than I do."
    Finally, in frustration, the judge asked, "Lady, why do you want a divorce?"
    "Oh, I don't want a divorce," she replied. "I've never wanted a divorce. My husband does. He said he can't communicate with me."

    IT Contractors
    Four professionals - an engineer, a chemist, an accountant and an IT contractor - were all boasting about how clever their dogs were.
    The engineer said that his dog could do something pretty impressive, so the others asked him to show them.
    "Setsquare, come here" shouted the engineer, "do your stuff." The dog walked over, picked up a ruler and a pencil and drew a perfect square on a piece of paper that was on the floor.
    The others agreed that this was pretty impressive.
    The chemist also said that his dog was very intelligent, and offered to show the others.
    "Prescription, come here, do your stuff". Prescription ran over and went to the fridge, where he took out a bottle of milk. Then he took a 10ml glass and poured the milk into the glass, right up to the top of the rim, without spilling any.
    Again everyone though this was pretty cool.
    Then the accountant called his dog over.
    "Spreadsheet, get to work". Spreadsheet ran into the kitchen and brought out a box of twelve cookies. He then opened the box and divided the cookies into four equal piles of three cookies each.
    The four professionals were suitable impressed. They turned to the IT contractor and said "What can your dog do?"
    The IT contractor called his dog over.
    "Chargeable, come over here, get to work."
    Chargeable ambled over, drank the milk, ate the cookies, dumped on the paper on the floor, shagged the three other dogs, presented a bill for seven thousand pounds, lit a cigar, got into a Lotus and screeched off into the sunset.


    There's an Englishman, a Welshman and a Jamaican...
    There's an Englishman, a Welshman and a Jamaican go to the hospital to pick up their new born babies. They are met by the nurse:
    Nurse: "We're terribly sorry but there's been a clerical error. We've got three babies and we know they're yours - but we don't know which is which. We need you to go and identify them."
    The Englishman goes in first and comes out holding a black baby.
    Nurse: "But that's obviously not yours - it's black."
    Englishman: "Well, I don't want the Welsh one do I?"


    Forward Through Technology (Vorsprung durch Technik)
    A German asks a prostitute for sex and she tells him it's 20 dollars.
    "Fine" he says, "but I'm a bit kinky". She agrees that this is OK as long as he doesn't do anything violent. They get back to her flat and he gets out four big springs attached to some straps.
    "I want you to put one of these on each elbow and one on each knee" he asks. The prostitute is worried that she's getting into something a bit heavy, but she goes along with his request. Then she is told to get down on all fours, naked, in front of him which she does grudgingly. Then he asks her to start bouncing up and down on the springs and finally he takes a duck call whistle from his pocket.
    "Blow on this while I'm shagging you" he tells her. So he's banging away at her from behind while she's bouncing on the springs blowing the duck whistle. Suddenly she starts to enjoy it, so much so in fact that she experiences the most fantastic orgasm she's ever had. After they've finished she says "Wow, that was the most fantastic sex I've had in 15 years on the game, how the hell did you make it so good?"
    "Ah," the German replies. "Four-sprung Duck Technique!!!"


    A Valentine's Story
    Last year a friend of mine upgraded GirlFriend 6.0 to Wife 1.0 and found that it's a memory hog leaving very system resources for other applications. He is only now noticing that Wife 1.0 also is spawning Child-Processes which are further consuming valuable resources.
    No mention of this particular phenomena was included in the product brochure or the documentation, though other users have informed him that this is to be expected due to the nature of the application. Not only that, Wife 1.0 installs itself that it is always launched at system initialisation where it can monitor all other system activity. He's finding that some applications such as PokerNight 10.3, BeerBash 2.5, und PubNight 7.0 are no longer able to run, crashing the system when selected (even though they always worked fine before). At installation, Wife 1.0 automatically installs undesired Plug-Ins such as MotherInLaw 55.8, and BrotherInLaw Beta release. As a consequence system performance seems to diminish with each passing day.
    Some features he'd like to see in the upcoming Wife 2.0:
    - A "Don't remind me again" button
    - Minimize button
    - An install shield feature that allows Wife 2.0 to be installed with the option to uninstall at any time without the loss of cache and other system resources.
    - (and the bit I like...) An option to run the network driver in promiscuous mode which would allow the systems hardware probe feature to have greater use.
    I myself decided to avoid all of the headaches associated with Wife 1.0 by sticking with GirlFriend 2.0. Even here, however, I found many problems. Apparently you cannot install GirlFriend 2.0 on top of Girlfriend 1.0. You must uninstall GirlFriend 1.0 first. Other users say this is a long standing bug which I should have been aware of. Apparently the versions of GirlFriend have conflicts over shared use of the I/O port. You think they would have fixed such a stupid bug by now. To make matters worse, the uninstall program for GirlFriend 1.0 doesn't work very well leaving undesirable traces of the application in the system.
    Another annoying problem - all versions of GirlFriend continually pop up annoying messages about the advantages of upgrading to Wife 1.0.
    *****BUG WARNING*****
    Wife 1.0 has an undocumented bug. If you try to install Mistress 1.1 before uninstalling Wife 1.0, Wife 1.0 will delete MSMoney files before executing a self-uninstallation. Then Mistress 1.1 will refuse to install, claiming insufficient system resources.
    *****BUG WORK AROUNDS*****
    To avoid the above bug, try installing Mistress 1.1 on a different system and never run any file transfer applications such as LapLink 6.0. Also, beware of similar shareware applications that have been known to carry viruses that may affect Wife 1.0.
    Another solution would be to run Mistress 1.0 via a UseNet provider under an anonymous name. Here again, beware of the viruses which can accidently be downloaded from the UseNet.

    Irish Jokes

    Paddy and Mick
    Paddy and Mick are walking home after a night on the piss. They've got no money to get a taxi and are staggering all over the place when they find themselves outside the bus depot. Paddy has a brainwave and says to Mick "Get in there and steal a bus so we can drive home and I'll stay out here and look out for the police". Mick duly breaks into the garage and is gone for twenty minutes while Paddy is wondering what the hell he's doing. Eventually Paddy sticks his head around the door and sees Mick running from bus to bus and looking very worried. "What the hell are you doing Mick, get a move on!" to which Mick replies "I can't find a number 7 anywhere Paddy" whereupon Paddy, holding his hands to his head in disbelief, shouts "You fucking idiot Mick, steal a number 9 and we'll get off at the roundabout and walk the rest of the way!".

    So the pair of them decide to try to catch a Salmon to fund there drinks. As they wander out of the pub Mick asks "Hang on a second we haven't got any fishing rods or bait, how are we going to catch a Salmon?".
    Paddy thinks for a while.... "Never mind, I'll dangle you over the bridge by your feet and you wait for a Salmon to swim by and when it does you can grab it".
    Mick agrees and so they start to fish. 5 minutes go by and Paddy hears nothing from Mick. 10 minutes go by and still nothing. After 20 minutes Mick suddenly screams "Pull me up quick!!".
    Paddy shouts "Have you got one, is it big!"
    "No....but there's a train coming!!"


    An American Anecdote - You Can't Whack a Tab
    Cigars and Insurance ... a true story. It could only happen in America!
    In Charlotte, North Carolina, a man having purchased a case of very rare, very expensive cigars insured them against fire among other things.
    Within a month, having smoked his entire stockpile of cigars and without having made his first premium payment on the policy, the man filed a claim against the insurance company. In his claim, the man stated the cigars were lost "in a series of small fires".
    The insurance company refused to pay, citing the obvious reason that the man had consumed the cigars in the normal fashion.
    The man sued....and won. In delivering the ruling the judge agreeing that the claim was frivolous, stated nevertheless that the man held a policy from the company in which it had warranted that the cigars were insurable and also guaranteed that it would insure against fire, without defining what it considered to be "unacceptable fire", and was obligated to pay the claim.
    Rather than endure a lengthy and costly appeal process the insurance company accepted the ruling and paid the man $15,000 for the rare cigars he lost in "the fires".
    After the man cashed the check, the company had him arrested on 24 counts of arson. With his own insurance claim and testimony from the previous case being used against him, the man was convicted of intentionally burning his insured property and sentenced to 24 months in jail and a $24,000 fine.
