Fred and Bill Play Golf

There was an old man named Bill, and one of the things he most enjoyed was playing golf with his old buddy Fred. Bill’s wife always commented on how happy he looked after a game.

But one day he came home from their weekly game looking terrible and very tired.

His wife asked “What’s the matter, Bill? You always seem so happy after golf and you look miserable right now”.

Bill said “Well, something terrible happened. Fred had a heart attack on the first hole”.

“My God, honey!” said the wife, rushing to comfort him. “That must’ve been terrible!”

“It was” he said. “All day long it was: hit the ball, drag Fred to the ball, and then hit it again…”

Blue Velvet Joke

One day, 7-year-old Little Johnny is on the playground, when he overhears two older boys talking about “Blue Velvet”. Being an inquisitive sort, Little Johnny walks up to them and asks them “What’s Blue Velvet?”
They proceed to kick his ass.

The recess teacher sees Little Johnny bruised, bloody, and crying. She asks him “What happened, Little Johnny?” to which he replies “Those older boys beat me up, just because I asked them what Blue Velvet is”. “As well they should have!” she states. “Get your ass to the Principal’s office, right now!”

Confused, scared, bruised, bloody, and crying, Little Johnny goes to the Principal’s office.
“Now son, just what happened?” “Well, sir, two older boys beat me up, and then the recess teacher sent me to you, all because I asked what Blue Velvet is”. “Little Johnny, you are expelled. Get the hell out of my school!”

Expelled, confused, scared, bruised, bloody, and crying, Little Johnny wanders home at midday. His mother answers the door, exclaiming “What happened?!” “I was beat up, yelled at, and expelled from school, all for asking what “Blue Velvet” is”. Little Johnny’s Mother slams the door in his face. From behind the closed door she yells “You’re never welcome in this home again!”

Homeless, confused, scared, bruised, bloody, and crying, Little Johnny wanders along Main Street wondering what to do, when a Policeman pulls up. “Get in” he says. Little Johnny does so, and as they start driving, the Policeman asks what happened. “Well, sir, I got beat up, yelled at, expelled from school, and thrown out of my home, all because I wanted to know what Blue Velvet is”.
The Policeman brings the car to a screeching halt, and throws Little Johnny out, saying “You are no longer welcome in this town. Don’t let me catch you around here again!”

Banished, homeless, confused, scared, bruised, bloody, and crying, Little Johnny wanders the highway on the edge of town, when a trucker pulls over and motions him into the cab.
As they drive away, the Trucker asks what happened. “Well, sir, I got beat up, yelled at, expelled, thrown out of my home, and banished from my town, all for asking what Blue Velvet is”.

“Is that so?” says the Trucker. “Well, hell, I can tell you what Blue Velvet is”.

“Really?”
“Sure”.

The Trucker stops the truck. “See that Hotel over there on the other side of the Highway? If you go into that Hotel, go up to the Third Floor, walk down the hallway, and knock on the second door on the right, there’s a woman in there who can tell you exactly what Blue Velvet is”.

“Gee, Thanks, Mister!” replies Little Johnny, smiling for the first time all day.

Little Johnny jumps down out of the truck and runs across the Highway when *BAM* he is hit by a car and killed instantly.

The moral of the story? Always look both ways before crossing the street.

Do Males or Females Enjoy Sex More?

A man and a woman were having drinks when they got into an argument about who enjoyed sex more.

The man said “Men obviously enjoy sex more than women. Why do you think we’re so obsessed with getting laid?”

“That doesn’t prove anything” the woman countered. “Think about this… when your ear itches and you put your finger in it and wiggle it around, then pull it out, which feels better-your ear or your finger?”

Father / Son First Drink

While reading an article last night about fathers and sons, memories came flooding back to the time I took me son out for his first pint.

Off we went to our local pub only two blocks from the cottage. I got him a Guinness.

He didn’t like it, so I drank it.¬†

Then I got him a Kilkenny’s.

He didn’t like that either, so I drank it.

Finally, I thought he might like some Harp Lager. He didn’t.

I drank it.

I thought that maybe he’d like whiskey better than beer so we tried a Jameson’s. Nope!

In desperation, I had him try that rare Redbreast, Ireland’s finest. He wouldn’t even smell it.
What could I do but drink it! 

By the time I realised he just didn’t like to drink, I was so shit-faced I could hardly push his stroller back home.

Two Aussies and a Logic Scientist

Two Aussie builders, Keith and Ken, are seated either side of a table in a rough pub when a well-dressed man enters, orders a beer and sits on a stool at the bar. The two builders start to speculate about the occupation of the suit.
Ken: “I reckon he’s an accountant”.
Keith: “No way – he’s a stockbroker”.
Ken: “He ain’t no stockbroker! A stockbroker wouldn’t come in here!”
The argument repeats itself for some time until the volume of beer gets the better of Ken and he makes for the toilet. On entering the toilet he sees that the suit is standing at a urinal. Curiosity and the several beers get the better of the builder.
Ken: “‘Scuse me mate… no offence meant, but me and me mate were wondering what you do for a living?”
Suit: “No offence taken! I’m a Logical Scientist by profession”.
Ken: “Oh! What’s that then?”
Suit: “I’ll try to explain by example… do you have a goldfish at home?
Ken: “Err… hmmm… well yeah, I do as it happens!”
Suit: “Well, it’s logical to follow that you keep it in a bowl or in a pond. Which is it?
Ken: “It’s in a pond!”
Suit: “Well then it’s reasonable to suppose that you have a large garden”.
Ken “As it happens, yes I have got a big garden!”
Suit: “Well then it’s logical to assume that in this town if you have a large garden then you have a large house?”
Ken: “As it happens I’ve got a five-bedroom house… built it myself!”
Suit: “Well given that you’ve built a five-bedroom house it is logical to assume that you haven’t built it just for yourself and that you are quite probably married?”
Ken: “Yes I am married, I live with my wife and five children”.
Suit: “Well then it is logical to assume that you are sexually active with your wife on a regular basis?”
Ken: “Yep! Five or six nights a week!”
Suit: “Well then it is logical to suggest that you do not masturbate very often?”
Ken: “Me? Never!”
Suit: “Well there you are! That’s logical science at work!”
Ken: “How’s that then?”
Suit: “Well from finding out that you had a goldfish, I’ve told you about your sex life!”
Ken: “I see! That’s pretty impressive… thanks mate!
Both leave the toilet and Ken returns to his mate.
Keith: “I see the suit was in there. Did you ask him what he does?”
Ken: “Yep! He’s a logical scientist!”
Keith: “What’s that then?”
Ken: “I’ll try and explain. Do you have a goldfish?”
Keith: “Nope”.
Ken: “Well then, you’re a wanker!”

Moose Hunting

Two men chartered a small plane to fly to Canada for a moose hunting trip. They managed to bag six. As they were loading the plane to return, the pilot said the plane could take only four moose. The two lads objected strongly.

“Last year we shot six. The pilot let us take them all and he had the same plane as yours”.

Reluctantly, the pilot gave in and all six were loaded. The plane took off. However, while attempting to cross some mountains even on full power, the little plane couldn’t handle the load and went down.

Somehow, surrounded by the moose bodies, Jim and Tony survived the crash.

After climbing out of the wreckage, Jim asked Tony “Any idea where we are?”

Tony replied “I think we’re pretty close to where we crashed last year”.

Infidelity and the Mother In Law

The mother-in-law arrives home from shopping to find her son-in-law, Walter, in a steaming rage and hurriedly packing his suitcase.

“What happened, Walter?” she asks anxiously. “What happened? I’ll tell you what happened! I sent an email to my wife telling her I was coming home today from my hunting trip. I get home… and guess what I found? Your daughter, my wife, Olga, naked with Joe Koverski in our marital bed! This is unforgivable! The end of our marriage. I’m done. I’m leaving forever!”

“Ah now, calm down, calm down Walter!” says his mother-in-law. “There is something very odd going on here. Olga would never do such a thing! There must be a simple explanation. I’ll go speak to her immediately and find out what happened”.

Moments later, the mother-in-law comes back with a big smile.

“Walter, there I told you there must be a simple explanation… “She never got your email!”

Five of the Best: Rock Sax Solos

A friend on Facebook asked around about the solos that you couldn’t help hum note for note when you heard them. When I had a think of my favourites, I realised there was a healthy dose of sax solos in there. I did some trawling and here are five hot sax solos that I think rate pretty highly. Don’t hesitate to make your own suggestions below!

1. Bruce Springsteen: Badlands

You could have a whole list of Springsteen songs that have killer sax solos, and Jungleland is probably considered the signature sax offering from Clarence Clemons. It’s also hard to go past Born to Run, but for mine, Badlands has the best rock ‘posership’ of the lot.

2. Eddie and the Cruisers 2 Soundtrack: Runnin’ Through The Fire

I’m really pushing it putting this right under the Springsteen pick, but there you have it. The movie wasn’t up to the standard of the original but it still had some great music thanks to John Cafferty and Co. If you ignore the mullets, this little ditty has a damn good sax solo.

3. Billy Joel: You May Be Right

Short, sharp and damn catch – it’s what every sax solo should be.

4. INXS: Never Tear Us Apart

Another sign of a great solo is not being able to imagine a song without it. This is one such song.

5. Men At Work: Who Can It Be Now?

Greg Ham – you are missed.

There’s a lots of others that deserve honourable mentions, but I’m keen to hear your picks. Which sax solos stand out the most for you?

The Duck Hunter

An avid duck hunter was in the market for a new bird dog. His search ended when he found a dog that could actually walk on water to retrieve a duck. Shocked by his find, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe him. He decided to try to break the news to a friend of his who refused to be impressed with anything. This, surely, would impress him. He invited him to hunt with him and his new dog.
As they waited by the shore, a flock of ducks flew by.

They fired, and a duck fell.

The dog responded and jumped into the water. The dog, however, did not sink but instead walked across the water to retrieve the bird never getting more than his paws wet.

This continued all day long; each time a duck fell, the dog walked across the surface of the water to retrieve it.

The friend watched carefully, saw everything, but did not say a single word. On the drive home the hunter asked his friend “Did you notice anything unusual about my new dog?” “I sure did” responded the friend. “He can’t swim”.
