Don't Spit Too High

In a Fox News interview, former Speaker Newt Gingrich was asked by Megyn Kelly if Donald Trump is a sexual predator. Gingrich accused Kelly of being more fascinated with sex than public policy. There has been a running Kelly-Trump feud and it looks like Newt wanted to join in.

I was mildly amused at the exchange between the two as Megyn Kelly provocatively posed for GQ magazine (above) in 2010 and Newt Gingrich had an affair in 1993 with a House of Representatives staffer while still married. I don't think I would have brought up the subject of "sex" if it were me, but I digress.

The exchange between the two got heated as Gingrich accused Kelly and the rest of the media of giving outsized attention to allegations of sexually inappropriate conduct lodged against Trump from 11 women. Kelly disagreed, insisting that her show has covered all the issues.

Gingrich retorted, "You want to go back through the tapes of your show recently. You are fascinated with sex, and you don’t care about public policy. That’s what I get out of watching your show tonight."

Kelly fired back, pointing to polls that show the issue is important to voters, particularly women, "Mr. Speaker, I’m not fascinated by sex but I am fascinated by the protection of women and understanding what we’re getting in the Oval Office."

It continued from there, with a dare from Gingrich and a taunt from Kelly. Gingrich: "And therefore we’re going to send Bill Clinton back to the East Wing. I want to hear you use the words ‘Bill Clinton, sexual predator.’ I dare you."

Kelly: "We on 'The 'Kelly File' have covered the Clinton matter as well. We’re going to have to leave it at that and you can take your anger issues and spend some time working on them, Mr. Speaker."

Gingrich: "You too."

The News As I See It: Hillary went to a fundraiser in New York City that was attended by Stevie Wonder. And even Stevie was like, "Let me guess — loud orange pantsuit?"

Samsung recently announced that people who turn in their recalled Galaxy Note 7 phones will be eligible for a free Note 8 next year when it debuts. Customers said, "I'm not falling for it. I've been burned by Samsung before."

Hillary's voters are now more excited to vote for Hillary than Trump voters are to vote for Trump. Which is crazy because getting excited about Hillary is like getting excited about taking your car in for an oil change. It's not fun, but the alternative is your car bursting into flames.

Last Friday, Amazon, CNN, and Twitter were all down all over the United States. It’s a chilling day that will one day be known in history as "Productive Friday."

This Date In History: 1793; Eli Whitney applied for a patent for the cotton gin. 1886; The Statue of Liberty was dedicated in New York Harbor by President Grover Cleveland. 1919; Congress passed the Volstead Act, or the National Prohibition Act, over President Woodrow Wilson's veto.

The lifeguard shouted at him so loud, he nearly fell in. 3) You know you drank too much last night when you have to use google maps to locate yourself the next morning. 4) I know it's been a while since I cleaned my house, but bringing in those blindfolded people for a Febreeze commercial wasn't funny. 5) My next door neighbor just accused me of stealing articles from her clothes line. I nearly shit her pants.....and that's five !

Today's Horoscope: Scorpio - : Horoscopes have always had a tendency to be wrong for you, but today's will be a peach. The partner of your dreams will realize you are worthy of attention today. Stock up on alcohol and remember to change the sheets.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: A hooded robber burst into a bank and, at gunpoint, forced the tellers to load their cash into a plain brown bag. As the robber approached the door, one brave customer grabbed the hood and pulled it off, revealing the robber's face.

Without a moment's hesitation, the robber shot the customer. He then looked around the bank and noticed one of the tellers looking straight at him. The robber instantly shot her also.

Everyone in the bank, by now horrified, stared down at the floor in silence. The robber yelled, "Well, did anyone else see my face?" There was a long moment of dead silence in which everyone was terrified to speak.

Then, one old man named Murray cautiously raised his hand and said, "My wife got a pretty good look at you....."

A frustrated wife buys a pair of crotchless panties in an attempt to spice up her dead sex-life. She puts them on, together with a short skirt and sits on the sofa opposite her husband.

At strategic moments she uncrosses her legs...enough times until her husband finally asks, "Are you wearing crotchless panties?" With a seductive smile, the woman purred, "Yes."

Her husband says, "Thank God, for a moment, I thought the stuffing was coming out of the sofa."

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: Scenario: A man is walking down the streets of Washington, D.C. with his wife and two small children. Suddenly, a thug with a huge knife comes around the corner and charges him. The man is carrying a Glock 45 and he is an expert shot. He has mere seconds before the thug reaches him and his family. What do you do?

Liberal Answer: "Well, that's not enough information to answer the question! Does the man look poor or oppressed? Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack? Could we run away? What does my wife think? What about the kids? Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand?

What does the law say about this situation? Does the Glock have appropriate safety built into it? Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children?"

Conservative Answer: Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang! Bang!

A man died and went to heaven. As he stood in front of St. Peter at the Pearly Gates, he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him. He asked, "What are all those clocks?"

St. Peter answered, "Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on Earth has a Lie-Clock. Every time you lie the hands on your clock will move.'' The man said, I see. Whose clock is that?''

St. Peter said, "That's Mother Teresa's. The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie.'' The man said, "And whose clock is that one?" St. Peter responded, "That's Abraham Lincoln 's clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abe told only two lies in his entire life.''

The man then asked, "Where's Obama 's clock?" St. Peter said, "Obama's clock is in Jesus' office. He's using it as a ceiling fan."

That's it for today, my little Goblins. Remember, If you take the Ginko, you might be able to remember where you put the Viagra......

Don't Miss Sunday's Nascar Talladega Race !

It's Talladega weekend for the NASCAR series and the third round eliminations for the Sprint Cup championship, where only eight of the twelve drivers will move on to the next round. All this with 40 drivers on a 2.66 mile banked super speedway at 200 mph.

Jimmy Johnson and have already qualified for the round of eight via their wins at Charlotte and Kansas respectively.Even though the standings show only seven points separate Joey Logano and Austin Dillon, tied for eighth, from Brad Keselowski in 11th, anyone in the field can be kicked out after Talladega.

Denny Hamlin was second in the standings at Talladega last year, but finished 37th and was eliminated. That means none of the Gibbs drivers are guaranteed anything and odds are at least one of them will be knocked out on Sunday. Same goes for the two Penske drivers.

Considering where they are in the standings, it will be difficult for both Keselowski and Logano to advance out of Talladega.

Nevertheless, it will be an exciting race and if you've never seen a Nascar Sprint Cup race, this would be a great time to start.

On Another Note: NASCAR has decided that unpredictable Talladega Super Speedway won't be an elimination race in next year's championship Chase, instead taking the pivotal stop to Kansas Speedway. The two tracks swapped dates Thursday in the most significant change to the 2017 schedule.

To the frustration of many drivers, Talladega had been the third race in the second round of the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship. The chaotic finish last year, when a wreck prevented Dale Earnhardt Jr. from having a chance to race Joey Logano for the victory, only underscored those opinions.

The News As I See It: Hillary and Trump were at a dinner together, the Al Smith Dinner, a charity event thrown annually by the Catholic Archdiocese of New York. It has become a tradition for the candidates to show up and tell jokes, like a roast. Hillary and Donald were one seat apart with Cardinal Timothy Dolan sitting between them, like an unhappy couple hoping to get their marriage annulled.

New data from the Hubble Space Telescope shows that the universe has two trillion galaxies, which is 10 times more than previously thought. The good news is, none of those galaxies are made by Samsung.

A Harvard psychologist who studies dreams recently said that dogs likely dream of our faces, our scents, and trying to please us. Then dogs said, "Nope — just butts."

This Date In History: 1797; The navy frigate U.S. Constitution, known as "Old Ironsides," was launched in Boston Harbor. 1805; Admiral Horatio Nelson died in the Battle of Trafalgar. 1837; Seminole chief Osceola was captured as he carried a white flag of truce during the Second Seminole War.

1879; Thomas Edison invented a workable incandescent electric lamp. 1959; The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum of modern and contemporary art, designed by architect Frank Lloyd Wright, opened to the public in New York City.

Picture Of The Day: There's nothing like the excitement of the roar of the engines when the green flag starts the race.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) Like my grandma always said, "Always put more booze in the mashed potatoes."  2) I like Triscuits because sometimes you just want to eat a wicker basket. 3) The worst part about getting kidnapped is when the news tells everyone your real height and weight. 4) My night was going great until a neighbor flew their drone over my property. So I grabbed my shotgun and yelled, "Pull!" 5) I had myself waxed "down there" and now my socks slide on real easy.....and that's five !

Today's Horoscope: Libra - : Feel free to share your inner-most secrets with your family and friends. They will adore you for your honesty and may only exclude you from everything they say or do for the next year or two. Seek solace in the bosom of a loved one. If your loved one has a particularly ample bosom, be aware that there might be others already in there. Help the smaller ones.

Birthdays: Samuel Taylor Coleridge,  poet 1772, Alfred Nobel, Swedish chemist and inventor 1833, Dizzy Gillespie, musician 1917, Celia Cruz, singer 1925, Ursula K. Le Guin, writer 1929, Benjamin Netanyahu, Israeli political leader 1949, Carrie Fisher, actress 1956.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: A week after their marriage, the newlyweds paid a visit to their doctor. The husband said, "I can't figure it out doc and I'm really worried. My testicles are turning blue." The doctor said, "That's unusual. let me examine you."

The doctor takes a look. Sure enough, the husband's testicles are blue. The doctor turns to the wife and asks, "Are you using the diaphragm that I prescribed?" The wife said, "Yes, I am." The doctor said, "Are you using the jelly like i told you?" Again, the wife replied, "Yes, I am." The doctor asked, "What kind of jelly are you using with it?" The wife replied, "Smuckers Grape....."

A husband and wife were at a party chatting with some friends when the subject of marriage counseling came up. The husband explained, "Oh, we'll never need that. My wife and I have a great relationship."

He went on to say, "She was a communications major in college and I majored in theater arts. She communicates well and I act like I'm listening."

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: A biker stopped by the local Harley Shop to have his bike repaired. They couldn't do the work while he waited, and so, since he didn't live far from the shop, he decided to walk home.

On the way home he stopped at the hardware store and bought a bucket and an anvil. He stopped at the feed store / livestock dealer and picked up a couple of chickens and a goose. However, he had a to carry his entire purchases home.

The feed store owner said, "Why don't you put the anvil in the bucket, carry the bucket in one hand, put a chicken under each arm and carry the goose in your other hand?" The biker replied, "Hey, thanks!", and out the door he went.

In the parking lot he was approached by a little old lady who told him she was lost, and asked if he could tell her the way to 1603 Mockingbird Lane. The biker said, "As a matter of fact, I live at 1616 Mockingbird Lane. We can take a short cut down this alley and be there in no time".

The little old lady looked him over cautiously, and then said, "I am a lonely widow without a husband to defend me. How do I know that when we get in the alley you won't hold me up against the wall, pull up my skirt and ravish me?"

The biker said, "Holy smokes lady! I'm carrying a bucket, an anvil, two chickens, and a goose. How in Hell could I possibly hold you up against a wall and do that?" The lady said, "Set the goose down, cover him with the bucket, put the anvil on top of the bucket, and I'll hold the chickens."

One morning a man comes into the church on crutches. He stops in front of the holy water and splashes some of it on both of his legs, then throws away his crutches. An altar boy witnessed the scene and runs into the rectory to tell the priest what he'd just seen.

Without batting an eye, the priest says, "Son, you've just witnessed a miracle. Tell me, where is this man?" The altar boy relied, "Flat on his ass, Father, over by the holy water."

That's it for today, my little pet peas. Remember, a liter of Johnnie Walker Black scotch......when you absolutely, positively need to wake up underneath your neighbor's swing-set. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour.

Pinocchio Has Nothing On Hillary

I will vote as planned but the barrage of liberal media propaganda combined with the FBI James Comey's remarks about Hillary lies and WikiLeaks email exposures angers me. What does it take for Hillary voters to see the light? Attempted murder on live TV?

In August, U.S. District Court Judge Emmet G. Sullivan granted Judicial Watch the right to ask 25 questions of Hillary Clinton about the creation of her private email server which she was required to answer under oath.

Hillary filed her response to those 25 questions which can be best summarized by the following stats:

Occurrences of the phrase "Does Not Recall": 20
Occurrences of the word "Object" or "Objection": 84

To summarize the 23-page response, Hillary "does not recall" the majority of her tenure as Secretary of State and "objects" to everything that she does recall. Another phrase that occurs throughout the document, well at least in response to the questions that she actually decided to answer, implies that she was under the illusion that all of her emails subject to FOIA requests would be captured on the email systems of her staffers who actually decided to follow the law and use " accounts."

"...her practice was to e-mail State Department staff on their accounts, her e-mail was being captured in the State Department’s record keeping systems."

Isn't it ironic that Hillary recognizes the legal basis for using "" accounts but then says that she "does not recall whether she had a specific expectation that the State Department would receive FOIA requests for or concerning her e-mail."

Of course, FOIA requests are such uncommon things, why should she expect to receive one? The blatant disregard for maintaining federal records, in and of itself, is just astonishing. Moreover, what about emails that Hillary sent to people outside of the State Department? Did she not send any "work-related" emails to people outside the government?

In response to a question on whether Hillary's 30,000 "personal emails" were retained, Hillary said she did not think they were kept but denied "any personal knowledge about the details" of their deletion.

The News As I See It: The best Hillary email that’s been leaked so far claims that she met with rapper Q-Tip last year to discuss how to appeal to hip-hop fans. The meeting with Q-Tip really affected Hillary because afterward, she actually came up with some rapper names for herself. First, she tried Lil’ Wheezy. Then she tried Run DNC. Finally, she decided on Wiz Deleeta.

A new business in Washington, D.C., opened recently allowing customers to pay $15 to take a 20-minute nap. They’re calling the new service "C-SPAN."

Obama is winding down his time in office. He’s got less than 100 days left. But he’s keeping busy, still pushing his agenda, he’s working to fight climate change, he’s shortening sentences for drug offenders, every night he goes down to the basement to visit Merrick Garland, his nominee for the Supreme Court.

Hillary Clinton campaigned in Florida with Al Gore. You’re making Al Gore go back to Florida? That’s so cruel. That’s like making Joe Frazier go back to Manila. Gore campaigned for Hillary at a Florida rally attended by 1,600 people. Unfortunately for Gore, a recount showed that it was only 1,300 people.

Samsung is sending out thermally insulated "flameproof" boxes for people returning its exploding Galaxy Note 7 phones. Samsung says they’re being "extra cautious" while UPS is saying, "Please use FedEx."

This Date In History: 1066 The Normans, under William the Conqueror, defeated the English at the Battle of Hastings. 1933 Nazi Germany withdrew from the Geneva disarmament conference and the League of Nations. 1947 U.S. Air Force Captain Charles "Chuck" Yeager became the first person to travel faster than the speed of sound. 1964 Martin Luther King, Jr., was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for his work in civil rights. 1968 The first live telecast from a staffed U.S. spacecraft was transmitted from Apollo 7. 1990 Composer-conductor Leonard Bernstein died in New York at age 72. The U.S. Naval Academy opened in Annapolis, Maryland. 

Picture Of The Day: Accusations about Donald Trump are exactly that.....unproven accusations. Accusations about bill Clinton's fidelity and Hillary berating Bill's relationships were proven to be true.

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) What if sun screen is really just a seasoning rub created by aliens? 2) Is it "raymen" noodles or "rawmun" noodles? I don't wanna sound stupid when asking the gas station clerk for a wine to complement my dinner. 3) Canada was once called Moosebekistan. You don't know. Prove me wrong. 4) (Girlfriend): "You're cute when you're drunk" (Me): "You're cute when I'm drunk too."  5) Remember when everyone died before gluten-free bread?.....and that's five !

Today's Horoscope: Libra - October 10th: Your task today is to keep these words in mind: Give a liberal a fish, he'll eat for a day. Teach a liberal to fish, he'll add to the global over-depletion of the oceans, then complain about global warming while he cashes his government check at the liquor store, so just give him the damned fish.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: A chicken farmer went to the local bar. He sat next to a woman and ordered champagne. The woman said, "How strange, I also just ordered a glass of champagne." The farmer said, "What a coincidence, it is a special day for me. I'm celebrating." The woman said, "It is a special day for me too, I am also celebrating!"

While they toasted, the farmer asked, "What are you celebrating?" The woman replied, "My husband and I have been trying to have a child for years, and today, my gynecologist told me that I was pregnant." The farmer said, "What a coincidence. I am a chicken farmer and for years all my hens were infertile, but now they are all set to lay fertilized eggs."

The woman said, "This is awesome! What did you do for your chickens to become fertile?" The farmer said, "I used a different rooster." The woman smiled and said, "What a coincidence."

A husband and wife are sitting quietly in bed reading when the wife looks over at him and asks, "What would you do if I died? Would you get married again?" He replied, "Definitely not!" His wife asked, "Why not? Don't you like being married?" He answered, "Of course I do."

The wife said, "Then why wouldn't you remarry?" The husband said, "Okay, okay, I'd get married again." With a hurt look, she said, "You would?" His wife inquired, "Would you live in our house?" He answered, "Sure, it's a great house." She asked, "Would you sleep with her in our bed?" The husband replied, "Where else would we sleep?" She continued, "Would you let her drive my car?" He said, "Probably, it is almost new."

The wife asked, "Would you replace my pictures with hers?" He said, "That would seem like the proper thing to do." She asked, "Would you give her my jewelry?" He answered, "No, I'm sure she'd want her own." His wife asked, "Would she use my golf clubs?" Her husband replied, "No, she's left-handed."

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: A father told his 3 sons when he sent them to the university, "I feel it is my duty to provide you with the best education possible and you do not owe me anything for providing that. However, I want you to appreciate it. As a token, I want each of you to put $1,000 into my coffin when I die."

And so it happened. His sons became a doctor, a lawyer, and a financial planner, each very successful financially. When their father’s time had come and they saw their father in the coffin, they remembered his wish.

First, it was the doctor who put 10 $100 bills onto the chest of the deceased. Then, came the financial planner, who also put $1,000 there.

Finally, it was the lawyer's turn. He reached into his jacket pocket, took out his checkbook, wrote a check for $3,000, put it into his father's coffin and took the $2,000 cash. He later went on to become a member of Congress.....

A man stopped by the Ford Dealership yesterday, for a look at the new F-150 pickup. Just for fun, he took it out for a test drive. He wanted to sense that new truck "feel" before they become old. The salesman (wearing an Obama pin) sat in the passenger seat next to him, describing the truck and all its "wonderful" options.

The seats were of particular interest. He explained that the seats directed warm air to your butt in the winter and directed cool air to your butt in the summer heat.

Feeling like messing with him, the man mentioned that this must be a Republican truck. Looking a bit angry, the salesman asked why the man thought it was a Republican truck. The man explained that if it were a Democrat truck, the seats would just blow smoke up your ass year-round.  

That's it for today, my little glow worms. Remember, "You clean up nicely", is just a polite way of saying, "You usually look like shit."

Hurricane Mathew To Return?

Miami escaped the wrath of Mathew, thankfully, but according to the National Hurricane Center, he may be returning. Nooo ! - Let's get back to the regularly scheduled local car crashes, robberies and murders. I'm tired of watching field reporters inventing scenes.

Hurricane Mathew continues to ravage the South Atlantic coastline and, hopefully, everyone will be as safe as possible. I shudder to imagine if the line of the hurricane had drifted a bit west, in which case, the consequences would have been much more severe.

Moreover, reports show that Mathew will be hooking back after it's rampage, possibly giving it a chance to do an encore.
Conditions may be just right in the ocean and atmosphere at that time to curve Matthew back around toward the southwest and return to Florida for Round Two.

As of midday Thursday, the hurricane was forecast by the U.S. National Hurricane Center to drop to tropical storm status (sustained winds of between 39 and 74 mph) by Monday morning. By Tuesday morning, the NHC places what would be Tropical Storm Matthew just to the northeast of Grand Bahama, not too far from where it was late on Thursday.

The last thing Florida needs as it picks up from Round One is another tropical storm, regardless of how weak the second pass is. While the potential Round Two is forecast to be much less severe, it would hamper recovery efforts.

The News As I See It: Joe Biden, in an interview, described his relationship with Obama as an older brother-younger brother dynamic. The only down side is when he forgets to pick up Obama from soccer practice.

We're just weeks away from Halloween. Yep, it's people pretending to be somebody else, going door-to-door for handouts, or as I call it, running for president.

Archaeologists in Egypt have discovered a pair of socks meant to be worn with sandals from 2,000 years ago. Scholars say it’s evidence of the first German tourist.

This Date In History: 1869; The 14th president of the United States, Franklin Pierce, died in Concord, N.H. 1871 The Great Fire of Chicago started. That same day in Peshtigo, Wis., the worst forest fire in U.S. history also began.

1934; Bruno Hauptmannn was indicted for the murder of Charles Lindbergh's baby. 1945; President Harry Truman announced the U.S. would share the secret of the atomic bomb only with Great Britain and Canada.

1956; Don Larsen of the New York Yankees pitched the first and only perfect game in a World Series. 2004; Martha Stewart began her prison sentence at Alderson Federal Prison Camp. 2005; A 7.6 magnitude earthquake centered in the Pakistani-controlled part of the Kashmir region killed more than 80,000 and injured 65,000.

Picture Of The Day: For those of you who have never seen the eye of a hurricane.....

Printable Things I Never Told You: 1) Tequila will never be my downfall as the worm does not justify the hangover. 2) You can get much further with a kind word and a gun than you can with a kind word alone. 3) It takes 10 Americans to screw in a light bulb. 1 to do it and 9 to debate if it was politically correct. 4) Rapture is what you get when you lift something that is too heavy.  5) I've finally reached the age where I can't function without my glasses.....especially if they're empty.....and that's five !

Today's Horoscope: Libra - October 5th: Remember to chew before you swallow, you know how excited you get sometimes. You may hear good news today from an older person who may or may not be intoxicated. Thinking and doing are two separate things. However, thinking about what you're doing is always a good idea. Try to remember this today when you're trying to tie your shoelaces while staring at the woman across the bar from you.

Birthdays: Emily Blackwell, physician 1826, Edward Rickenbacker, war hero and airline executive 1890, Juan PerĂ³n, president of Argentina 1895, Frank Herbert, writer 1920, Chevy Chase comedian 1943, R.L. Stine, writer 1943, Dennis Kucinich, political figure 1946, Sigourney Weaver, actress 1949, Matt Damon, actor 1970.

The AREA 51 Retirement Home Bar And Grill: A farmer in the country noticed that a gentleman would fish at the lake (close to the farmer's house) and would always leave with a stringer full of fish. The fellow had a boat but a fishing pole was not to be seen.

The farmer mentioned the situation to the game warden. The warden then started watching this man and all that the farmer said was true! The man would arrive at the lake in the morning and by early afternoon, he had a stringer full of fish.

The warden dressed like a fisherman one day and approached the man. They exchanged pleasantries and the stranger asked the warden in disguise to come fish with him. They boated for 45 minutes and arrived at a secluded spot.

The stranger then pulled out a stick of dynamite. The warden said, "I'm going to have to place you under arrest. I am a game warden and you are fishing illegally!"

The stranger calmly lit the stick of dynamite and handed it to the warden. The stranger then said, "Are you gonna talk or fish?"

I met a girl in the park the other evening. There was an instant spark between us and she immediately dropped to her knees and laid on the grass at my feet. As we lay making love, I thought "These Taser guns are well worth the money."

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: My thanks to my long time friend, Mike, for his contribution to today's stories.

During his physical, the doctor asked the patient about his daily activity level. He described a typical day this way:

"Well, yesterday afternoon, I waded along the edge of a lake, drank eight beers, escaped from wild dogs in the heavy brush, marched up and down several rocky hills, stood in a patch of poison ivy, crawled out of quicksand, jumped away from an aggressive rattlesnake and took four leaks behind big trees."

Inspired by the story, the doctor said, "You must be one hell of an outdoorsman!" The man replied, "No, I'm just a crappy golfer."

A rancher needed a bull to service his cows but needed to borrow the money from the bank. The banker who lent the money came by a week later to see how his investment is doing.

The farmer complains that the bull just eats grass and won't even look at the cows. The banker suggests that a veterinarian have a look at the bull.

The next week the banker returns to see if the vet helped. The farmer looks very pleased and says, "The bull has serviced all my cows, broke through the fence and has serviced all of my neighbor's cows."

The banker says, "Wow! What did the vet do to that bull?" The farmer said, "I don't really know. He just gave him some pills." The banker asked, "What kind of pills?" The farmer said, "I don't know, but they sort of tasted like peppermint."

That's it for today, my little persimmons. Remember, all those years of getting horrible elementary school pictures was just life's way of preparing you for your driver's license photo. I'm heading over to AREA 51 for happy hour.

The blonde said, "I want 25 gallons. I'm going to fill my bathtub up with milk and take a milk bath so I can look young and beautiful again." The milkman asked, "Do you want it pasteurized?" The blonde said, "No, just up to my tits. I can splash it on my eyes."

The teacher, knowing how precious some of these stories could become, asked the girl to describe the incident.

The little girl said, "Well, I was in the back yard with my kitty and the Rottweiler that lives next door got a running start and before we knew it, he jumped over the fence into our yard!"

The teacher said, "That must have been scary."The little girl said, "It sure was! My kitty raised his back, went 'Fffff, Fffff, Fffff' and before he could say 'F*ck', the Rottweiler ate him!"
