White parrot

Postby TJrandom » Sun Dec 25, 2016 7:40 pm

In front of a barber shop stood a magnific white parrot. Each morning and evening as a lady passed by on her way to and back home, the parrot greeted her with: ‘hi cutie.’

She simply ignored it for over a year, but finally became annoyed at the thought the barber was being rude by teaching this to his parrot, so she walked into the shop and complained to the owner.

He went outside and slapped the parrot silly telling him he'd wring his neck should he open his mouth again. But the next morning when she passed by, the parrot greeted her with: ‘hi cutie, love your body.’

So again the lady complained.

The barber gave the parrot the riot act and for punishment, he dipped the bird in black dye and put him back on his perch to dry.

Oh her way home the parrot said nothing – not a word. She turned to look at this new black parrot and said: `Well, I see you are better mannered than your white predecessor, suits him right. Can you talk?`

The parrot replied: ‘Listen LADY. I don't speak to just any cute girl when I'm wearing my tuxedo.’

What does this phrase even mean? Is going "to and back home" one action or two? Are they different directions or the same direction? If they're different directions, how can that be? Does she have more than one home?

It's a typo and should be "too and back home". :-P

Ted the tramp was in front of the magistrates court again for being drunk and disorderly. The judge was about eighty and a bit deaf and Ted like most tramps was a bit lippy and belligerent. The charges were read out.
Fighting with bouncers outside a pub he'd been bared from and kicking the arresting cops in the shins.

Judge: 'Before I pass sentence what does the accused have to say on behalf of his defence?'

Ted: '.... ALL!'

Judge: Leaning to one side: 'clerk of the court, what did that man say?

CoTC: 'He said '.... all M lord'.

Judge: Hmm, that's funny I could have sworn I saw his lips move'.

Sex Frogs

Postby TJrandom » Wed Feb 08, 2017 9:55 am

A blonde went to her local pet store in search of an exotic pet. As she looked about the store she noticed a box FULL of frogs with a sign that said: 'SEX FROGS Only $20 each!, complete, with instructions`.

The girl excitedly looks around to see if anybody was watching her. She whispered softly to the man behind the counter 'I'll TAKE one!' As the man packaged the frog he quietly said to her 'Just follow the instructions!'

The blonde nodded, grabbed the box, and was quickly on her way home. As soon as she closed the door to her apartment she opened the instructions and read them very carefully.

She then did EXACTLY what was specified.
1. Take a shower.
2. Splash on some nice perfume.
3. Crawl into bed and place the frog down beside you and allow the frog do what he has been trained to do.

She then quickly climbed into bed with the frog and to her surprise ..... NOTHING happened! The blonde was very disappointed and quite upset at this point. She re-read the instructions and noticed at the bottom of the paper it said 'If you have any problems or questions please call the pet store.'

So she called the pet store, and the man said that he would be right over. And within minutes the man was ringing her doorbell. The blonde welcomed him in and said 'See, I've done everything according to the instructions. The damn frog just SITS there!'.

The man ........ looking very concerned picked up the frog, stared 'directly into its eyes' and STERNLY said: 'LISTEN TO ME!! I'm only going to show you how to do this ONE MORE TIME........

True story!

I was sitting around with some friends one day when the topic arose: Would you bother to stop to pick up a quarter or is it not worth the effort? Most of us agreed a quarter was worthwhile but that a penny wasn't. I, however, disagreed. I pick up pennies because I'm saving them up to make a statue of myself. :P Yes I am. It's true. But so far, I only have enough to build one foot and part of a shin.

So my friends asked me, what about a nickel? Is that worth the effort to bend over and pick up a nickel? I said yes, it's hard to say I would bend over to pick up a penny if I wasn't prepared to bend over for a nickel, so sure, I would bend over for a nickel. But they still didn't believe me.

Then Theresa showed up, and I thought she was a pretty reasonable person when it came to this sort of thing, so I asked her: "Would you bend over for a nickel?"

And she slapped me!

I see a potential problem with your statue: The foot you began with will look 20 yirz old and your hed will look 100. And the pennyz will be paradoxically old for the yung parts and new for the old parts!

problems at work

Postby TJrandom » Sat Feb 11, 2017 1:42 am

A wife repeatedly called upstairs for her husband to get up, get dressed and get ready for work. It was a familiar routine.

"I feel sick," said the voice from the bedroom.

"You are not sick. Get up and get ready," called the wife, walking up the stairs and hovering outside the bedroom door.

"I hate work and I'm not going," said the voice from the bedroom, "I'm always getting things wrong, making mistakes and getting told off. Nobody likes me, and I've got no friends. And we have too many news reports to read and they are too confusing. It's all just pointless, and I'm not going to work ever again."

"I'm sorry, but you are going to work," said the wife through the door, continuing encouragingly, "Really, mistakes are how we learn and develop. And please try not to take criticism so personally. And I can't believe that nobody likes you - you have lots of friends at work. And yes, all those news reports can be confusing, but we all need to read them throughout our lives, so all of this experience at work is useful for life in general.

Besides, you have to go, you are the President."

Another Parrot Joke

Postby Cadmusteeth » Sat Feb 11, 2017 3:58 am

A woman bought a parrot with beautiful plumage but the only thing it could say was "Who is it?" After a few days she realized that the bird's color clashed with the rest of the living room, so she called a decorator to give the room a new coat of paint. When he arrived to do the job, she had just gone out to post a letter, leaving the parrot in charge.
The decorator knocked on the front door.
"Who is it?" squawked the parrot.
"It's the decorator."
"Who is it?" repeated the parrot.
"It's the decorator."
"Who is it?"
"The decorater!" yelled the man.
"Who is it?"
"It's the goddamn decorator!"
"Who is it?"
"I said, it's the decorator!"
And with that, the man suffered a fatal heart attack and collasped on the doorstep.
A few minutes later, the woman returned home. Seeing the body on the step, she said: "My God! Who is it?"
The parrot replied: "It's the decorator!"

Nair

Postby TJrandom » Sat Feb 11, 2017 10:26 pm

My neighbour found out her dog could hardly hear so she took it to the veterinarian. He found that the problem was excessive hair in its ears. He cleaned both ears and the dog could hear fine. The vet then proceeded to tell the lady that if she wanted to keep this from recurring she should go to the store and get some "Nair" hair remover and rub it in the dog's ears once a month.

The lady went to the pharmacy for some Nair" hair remover. At the register the pharmacist told her, "If you're going to use this under your arms, don't use deodorant for a few days."

The lady says, "I'm not using it under my arms."

The druggist said, "Well if you're using it on your legs, don't shave for a couple of days."

The lady says, "I'm not using it on my legs either. But if you must know, I'm using it on my schnauzer."

The pharmacist said, "Ah, well in that case, I`d advise you to stay off your bicycle for a week."

two lines

Postby TJrandom » Sat Feb 18, 2017 6:39 am

At the end of time when all the believers were gathered, waiting to get into heaven, God appeared and said, "I want all the men to form two lines. One line will be for the men who were the true heads of their households. The other will be for the men who were dominated by their wives."

God continued, "I want all the women to report to St. Peter."

The women left and the men formed two lines. The line of men who were dominated by their wives was seemingly unending. The line of men who were the true head of their household had one man in it.

God said to the first line, "You men ought to be ashamed or yourselves. I appointed you to be the heads of your households and you were disobedient and have not fulfilled your purpose. There is only one man who obeyed me. Learn from him."

Then God turned to the lone man and asked, "How did you come to be in this line?"

The man replied, "My wife told me to stand here."
