Wednesday Wanks.....

Well Sir....I saw this over at "Snoop's" yesterday and just had to snag it......Here's who I'm a votin fer on "lection day"....


This has been around awhile, but Susan Gertson humorously reminds us of the differences between Democrats and Republicans...

A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be a very liberal
Democrat, and was very much in favor of the redistribution of wealth. She was deeply ashamed that her father was a staunch Republican, a feeling she openly expressed.

Based on the lectures that she had participated in, and the
occasional chat with a professor, she felt that her father had for years
harbored an evil, selfish desire to keep what he thought should be his.

One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher
taxes on the rich and the addition of more government welfare programs.
The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to
be the truth and she indicated so to her father. He responded by asking how
she was doing in school.

Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which left her no time to go out and party like other people she knew.

She didn't even have time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have
many college friends because she spent all her time studying.

Her father listened and then asked, "How is your friend Audrey

She replied, "Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy
classes, she never studies, and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. She is so
popular on campus; college for her is a blast. She's always invited to all
the parties, and lots of times she doesn't even show up for classes
because she's too hung over."

Her wise father asked his daughter, "Why don't you go to the Dean's
office and ask him to deduct a 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your
friend who only has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and
certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA."

The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily
fired back, "That wouldn't be fair! I have worked really hard for my
grades! I've invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work! Audrey has done next
to nothing toward her degree. She played while I worked my tail off!"

The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently,

"Welcome to the Republican party."


....and Charlie the Cop tells us about somthin I think we'd all like to do to door to door salesmen.....

A little old lady answered a knock on the door one day, only to be confronted by a well-dressed young Man carrying a vacuum cleaner.

'Good morning,' said the young man. 'If I could take couple of minutes of your time, I would like to demonstrate the very latest in high-powered vacuum cleaners.'

'Go away!' Said the old lady. 'I'm broke and haven't got any money!' and she proceeded to close the door quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door and pushed it wide open.

'Don't be too hasty!' He said. 'Not until you have at least seen my demonstration.'
And with that, he emptied a bucket of horse Manure onto her hallway carpet.

'If this vacuum cleaner does not remove all traces of this horse manure from your carpet, Madam, I will personally eat the remainder.'

The old lady stepped back and said,

"Well...Let me get you a fork sonny,'cause they cut off my electricity this morning".


At Saint Mary's Catholic Church they have a weekly husband's marriage seminar.

At the session last week, the Priest asked Luigi, who was approaching his 50th wedding anniversary, to take a few minutes and share some insight into how he had managed to stay married to the same woman all these years.

Luigi replied to the assembled husbands, 'Well, I've a tried to treata her nice, spenda the money on her, but best is that I tooka her to Italy for our 20th anniversary!'

The Priest responded, 'Luigi, you are an amazing inspiration to all the husbands here!

Please tell us what you are planning for your wife for your 50th anniversary.'

Luigi proudly replied, 'I'm a gonna go and get her.

....Thanks Susan fer that sage advice....there are times I wish I had thought of that and taken the misses back to Ireland....
