Happy Valentine's Day
St. Valentine's Day is tomorrow. In actually, it can be fun if you let it, but amusingly, it's a day where the news and media set high expectations for couples and singles are forced to think of it as "Singles Awareness Day." Naturally, roses, cards, jewelry and restaurants double and triple their prices.
You could spend the day grumbling about Hallmark, crowded, overpriced restaurants and your mom calling you for the fourth f**king year in a row asking why you're still single or you can accept the ridiculousness of the holiday, grab a six pack, order a pizza and, afterward, eat that pint of Ben and Jerry's with pride.
A new survey revealed that 30% of all women prefer sex over flowers on Valentines Day. The survey was from a sampling of women I have never met. It's a holiday that reminds you that if you don't have someone special, your alone.
Valentine's Day can be a huge letdown for some men and women. The girl's are thinking, "This is the year I'm gonna get diamonds", the men are thinking, "I'm gonna get a BJ". Both are usually disappointed. Afterwards, the women are thinking, "I shave my pubes into a heart shape for this?"
The bottom line? If you're happy and have that special someone, Valentine's Day can be 365 days a year and at half the price.....

So, when the nurse wasn't looking, I did. 4) No matter how hard I try, I just never seem to run out of bad ideas 5) I bought a new stick deodorant and the instructions said "remove cap and push up bottom." I can barely walk but when I fart, the room smells lovely.....and that's five !

Mario is planning to marry and asks his family doctor how he could tell if his bride-to-be is still a virgin. His doctor says, "Mario, all the Italian men I know use three things for what we call a Do-It-Yourself-Virginity-Test-Kit which consists of a small can of red paint, a small can of blue paint and a shovel."
Mario asks, "And what do I do with these things, doc?" The doctor replies, "Before you climb into bed on your wedding night, you paint one of your balls red and the other ball blue. If she says, 'That's the strangest pair of balls I've ever seen!', you hit her with the shovel."
The Hits Just Keep On Coming: A little old lady went to the grocery store to buy cat food. She picked up four cans and took them to the checkout counter.
The girl at the cash register said, "I'm sorry, but we cannot sell you cat food without proof that you have a cat. A lot of old people buy cat food to eat, and the management wants proof that you are buying the cat food for your cat."
The little old lady went home, picked up her cat and brought it back to the store. They sold her the cat food.
The next day, she tried to buy two cans of dog food. Again the cashier said "I'm sorry, but we cannot sell you dog food without proof that you have a dog. A lot of old people buy dog food to eat, but the management wants proof that you are buying the dog food for your dog."
So she went home and brought in her dog. She then was able to buy the dog food.
The next day she brought in a box with a hole in the lid. The little old lady asked the cashier to stick her finger in the hole. The cashier said, "No, you might have a snake in there."
The little old lady assured her that there was nothing in the box that would harm her. So the cashier put her finger into the box and quickly pulled it out.
She said to the little old lady, "That smells like shit." The little old lady said, "It is, I want to buy three rolls of toilet paper."
A priest offered a Nun a lift. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg.
The nun said, "Father, remember Psalm 129?" The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, "Father, remember Psalm 129?" The priest apologized, "Sorry sister but the flesh is weak."
Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, "Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory."
Moral of the story: If you are not well informed in your job, opportunities for advancement will pass right by you.
