Tonight or tomorrow, a satellite the size of a bus is expected to fall to earth. A NASA spokesman says that it will hit somewhere between the tip of South America to Northern Canada. Asked to narrow it down, the spokesman said he wasn't a rocket scientist.
Okay, there is only a one-in-3,200 chance that its debris could hit a person, but someone gets hit by lightning at least once a month. Hey, people even win the lottery where the odds are (you'll excuse the word) "astronomical."
I wonder what the odds are against getting hit by lightening, surviving, then checking to learn that you've hit the lottery, subsequently walking outside to tell your wife and getting killed by a runaway satellite the size of a bus?
The Department of Justice recently spent sixteen dollars per muffin at a meeting. In a time where America is screaming about rising costs and the national debt, it seems to me that the price of those muffins wee a bit "over the top." This is exactly why the government is in such deep financial do-do.
At first, I hoped they were at least bran muffins, but in retrospect, I think the memebers of the justice department and other government agencies are so full of shit, that the bran muffins just might do them in.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: An elderly couple were on a cruise and it was really stormy. They were standing on the back of the ship watching the moon, when a wave came up and washed the old woman overboard. They searched for days and couldn't find her. So the captain sent the old man back to shore with the promise that he would notify him as soon as they found something.
Three weeks went by and finally the old man got a fax from the ship. It read, "Sir, I'm sorry to inform you, we found your wife dead at the bottom of the ocean. We hauled her up to the deck and attached to her rear end was an oyster. Inside the oyster was a pearl worth $50,000. Please advise." The old man faxed back, "Send me the pearl and re-bait the trap."

The man explained, "Well, it was like this. I was having a quiet round of golf with my wife, when at a difficult hole, we both sliced our balls into a pasture of cows.
We went to look for them, and while I was rooting around noticed one of the cows had something white at its rear end. I walked over and lifted up the tail, and sure enough, there was a golf ball with my wife's monogram on it ......stuck right in the middle of the cow's ass."
The doctor said, "What happened next?" The man said, "Well, I lifted the cow's tail and yelled to my wife, 'Hey, this looks like yours!'. I don't remember much after that."
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: A blonde walks into a pharmacy and asks the assistant for some bottom deodorant. The pharmacist, a little bemused, explains to the woman that they don't sell bottom deodorant, and never have. Unfazed, the blonde assures the pharmacist that she has been buying the stuff from this store on a regular basis and would like to buy some more.
The pharmacist says, "I'm sorry, we don't have any." The blonde says, "But I always get it here." The pharmacist says, "Do you have the container it comes in?" The blonde says, "I'll go get it."
She returns with the container and hands it to the chemist who looks at it and says to her, "This is just a normal stick of underarm deodorant." The annoyed blonde snatches the container back and reads out loud from the container, "To apply, push up bottom."
Two girlfriends, a blonde and a redhead, are walking down the street and pass a flower shop where the redhead happens to see her boyfriend buying flowers. She sighs and says, "Oh, crap, my boyfriend is buying me flowers again."
The blonde looks quizzically at her and says, "You don't like getting flowers?" The redhead says, "I love getting flowers, but he always has expectations after giving me flowers. I just don't feel like spending the next three days on my back with my legs in the air." The blonde says, "Don't you have a vase?"
A blonde, brunette, and a red head were all in a race swimming the breast stroke across the English channel. The brunette came in first and the red head right after. When they were taking the blonde back on a lifeboat she said, "I don't want to be a tattletale, but the other two used their arms."
