heres another!

A young man married a beautiful woman who had previously divorced 10 husbands. On their wedding night, she told her new husband to 'Please be gentle; I'm still a virgin.'

'What ?' said the puzzled groom.
'How can that be if you've been married ten times?'

'Well, husband #1 was a Sales Representative; he kept telling me how great it was going to be.

'Husband #2 was in Software Services; he was never really sure how it was supposed to function; but he said he'd look into it and get back with me.

'Husband #3 was from Field Services; he said that everything checked out diagnostically but he just couldn't get the system up.

' Husband #4 was in Telemarketing; even though he knew he had the order, he didn't know when he would be able to deliver

'Husband #5 was an Engineer; he understood the basic process but he wanted three years to research, implement, and design a new state-of-the-art method..

'Husband #6 was from Administration; he thought he knew how but he wasn't sure whether it was his job or not.

'Husband #7 was in Marketing; although he had a product, he was never sure how to position it.

'Husband #8 was a Psychiatrist; all he did was talk about it.

'Husband #9 was a Gynecologist; all he did was look at it.
.
'Husband #10 was a Stamp Collector; all he ever did was........... God I miss him !!.

.
'But now that I've married you, I'm so excited'.

'Wonderful', said the husband, 'but why ?

'You're with the ' GOVERNMENT '. .
This time I KNOW I'M gonna get SCREWED.'

Remember: "Age and treachery will always outwit youth and enthusiasm"


A very self-important college freshman attending a recent football game, took it upon himself to explain to a senior citizen sitting next to him why it was impossible for the older generation to understand his generation..

"You grew up in a different world, actually an almost primitive one," the student said, loud enough for many of those nearby to hear. "The young people of today grew up with television, jet planes, space travel, man walking on the moon, our spaceships have visited Mars. We have nuclear energy, electric and hydrogen cars, computers with DSL, bsp; light-speed processing ...and," pausing to take another drink of beer.

The Senior took advantage of the break in the student's litany and said, "You're right, son. We didn't have those things when we were young.....so we invented them. Now, you arrogant little sh*t, what are you doing for the next generation?"

The applause was resounding...

I love senior citizens
