There was a chap at the club who in an accident had his ear sliced off, clean as a whistle, and there he was, at the bar, with a brand new ear. “Hello Charlie, you look swell and how did you get your new ear? “ “Well they grew another one from a pigs embryo” he answered. “Wonderful” I said ….”and do you get any problems with it? “Not much - but I have to watch out for the sun and heat otherwise I hear the sound of crackling.” “That should however clear up soon, they have given me some oinkment for it.”

One bitterly cold morning a farmer went to collect his herd of cows from the field and found them all frozen solid. They were covered in ice from head to hoof and the farmer was very worried., I have to milk them he said to himself but how can I. If I can’t milk them I get no money. He was very concerned. Just then a little old lady came by and asked what the problem was . It’s my herd of cows said the farmer - they are frozen solid and I must milk them. The little old lady went up to the first cow and gently rubbed his nose - within no time the ice had fallen off the cow and it was as right as rain. The little old lady went through the herd, rubbing each nose in turn until the whole herd was up and running. The farmer turned to thank the little old lady, but she had gone - just as silently and quickly as she had appeared. That night in the pub the farmer recounted the story to his neighbour. “You know who that was don’t you” the neighbour said. “No” said the farmer” “It was Thora Hurd” said the neighbour.

From dear ol' Caz! NUDITY I was driving with my three young children one warm summer evening when a Woman in the convertible ahead of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout from the back seat, 'Mom! That lady isn't wearing a seat belt! HONESTY My son Zachary, 4, came screaming out of the bathroom to tell me he'd dropped his toothbrush in the toilet. So I fished it out and threw it in the garbage. Zachary stood there thinking for a moment, then ran to my bathroom and came out with my toothbrush. He held it up and said with a charming little smile, 'We better throw this one out too then, 'cause it fell in the toilet a few days ago. OPINIONS On the first day of school, a grade one student handed his teacher a Note from his mother. The note read, 'The opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily those of his parents...' KETCHUP A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup to come out of the jar. During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone. 'It's the minister, Mommy,' the child said to her mother. Then she added, 'Mommy can't come to the phone to talk to you right now. She's hitting the bottle.' MORE NUDITY A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in the women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement and then asked, 'What's the matter haven't you ever seen a little boy before?' ELDERLY While working for an organization that delivers lunches to elderly shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on my afternoon rounds. The various appliances of old age, particularly the canes, walkers and wheelchairs, unfailingly intrigued her. One day I found her staring at a pair of false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and whispered, 'The tooth fairy will never believe this!' DRESS-UP A little girl was watching her parents dress for a party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she warned, 'Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit.' 'And why not, darling?' 'You know that it always gives you a headache the next morning.' SCHOOL A little girl had just finished her first week of school. 'I'm just wasting my time,' she said to her mother. 'I can't read, I can't write and they won't let me talk!' BIBLE A little boy opened the big family bible. He was fascinated as he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed in between the pages. 'Mama, look what I found', the boy called out.' What have you got there, dear?' With astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered, 'I think it's Adam's underwear.________________________________

From Caz nr Heathrow, I'm a 30's baby myself - I know what Caz is but being a gentleman I wouldn't dare say!!! CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE KIDS WHO WERE BORN IN THE... 1940's, 50's, 60's and 70’s!! First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a tin, and didn't get tested for diabetes. Then after that trauma, our baby cots were covered with bright coloured lead-based paints. We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags. Riding in the back of a van - loose - was always great fun. We drank water from the garden hosepipe and NOT from a bottle. We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this. We ate cakes, white bread and real butter and drank pop with sugar in it, but we weren't overweight because..... WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!! We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on. No one was able to reach us all day. And we were O.K. We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem. We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 99 channels on cable, no video tape movies, no surround sound, no cell phones, no text messaging, no personal computers, no Internet or Internet chat rooms.......... WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them! We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents. We played with worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever. Made up games with sticks and tennis balls and although we were told it would happen, we did not poke out any eyes. We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just yelled for them! Local teams had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!! The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law! This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever! The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas. We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL! And YOU are one of them! CONGRATULATIONS! You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated our lives for our own good. And while you are at it, tell it to your kids so they will know how brave their parents were. Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn't it?!

From Caz. I think something like this has been on the threads before - but this is a little different. YOU KNOW YOU ARE LIVING IN 2007 WHEN: 1. You try to enter your password on the microwave. 2. You haven't played solitaire with real cards in years. 3. You have a list of 15 phone numbers to reach your family of 3. 4. You e-mail the person who works at the desk next to you. 5. Your reason for not staying in touch with friends and family is that they don't have e-mail addresses. 6. You pull up in your own driveway and use your cell phone to see if anyone is home to help you carry in the groceries. 7 Every commercial on television has a web site at the bottom of the screen. 8. Leaving the house without your cell phone, which you didn't have the first 20 or 30 (or 60) years of your life, is now a cause for panic and you turn around to go and get it. 10. You get up in the morning and go on line before getting your coffee. 11. You start tilting your head sideways to smile. : ) 12. You're reading this and nodding and laughing. 13. Even worse, you know exactly to whom you are going to forward this message. 14. You are too busy to notice there was no #9 on this list. 15. You actually scrolled back up to check that there wasn't a #9 on this list

Another one from Caz! (Bless her.) One day, when a seamstress was sewing while sitting close to a river, her thimble fell into the river. When she cried out, a fairy godmother appeared and asked, 'My dear child, why are you crying?' The seamstress replied that her thimble had fallen into the water and that she needed it to help her husband in making a living for their family. The fairy godmother dipped her hand into the water and pulled up a golden thimble set with pearls. 'Is this your thimble?' the fairy godmother asked. The seamstress replied, 'No.' The fairy godmother again dipped into the river. She held out a silver thimble ringed with sapphire 'Is this your thimble?' she asked. Again, the seamstress replied, 'No.' The fairy godmother reached down again and came up with a leather thimble. 'Is this your thimble?' she asked. The seamstress replied, 'Yes.' The fairy godmother was pleased with the woman's honesty and gave her all three thimbles to keep, and the seamstress went home happy. Some years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband along the riverbank, and her husband fell into the river and disappeared under the water. When she cried out, the same fairy godmother again appeared and asked her, 'Why are you crying?' 'Oh, my husband has fallen into the river!' The fairy godmother went down into the water and came up with George Clooney. 'Is this your husband?' she asked. 'Yes,' cried the seamstress. The fairy godmother was furious. 'You lied! That is an untruth!' The seamstress replied, 'Oh, forgive me. It is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said 'no' to George Clooney, you would have come up with Brad Pitt. Then if I said 'no' to him, you would have come up with my husband. Had I then said 'yes,' you would have given me all three. Dear fairy godmother, I'm not in the best of health and would not be able to take care of all three husbands, so THAT'S why I said 'yes' to George Clooney. And so the fairy godmother let her keep him. The moral of this story is: Whenever a woman lies, it's for a good and honorable reason, and in the best interest of others. That's our story, and we're sticking to it. Signed, All Us Women

Another from Caz, A man smelled like a distillery flopped on a subway seat next to a priest. The man's tie was stained, his face was plastered with red lipstick, and a half empty bottle of gin sticking out of his torn coat pocket. He opened his newspaper and began reading. After a few minutes the disheveled guy turns to the priest and asked, “Say, Father, what causes arthritis? 'Mister, it's called loose living, being with cheap, wicked women, too much alcohol, and a contempt for your fellow man.' 'Well, I’ll be damned,'the drunk muttered', returning to his paper. The priest, thinking about what he had said, nudged the man and apologized, I’m very sorry, I didn't mean to come on so strong. How long have you had arthritis?' I don't have it, Father, I was just reading here that the pope does.'

Caz says 'Sit up at the back!' First-year students at Medical College were receiving their first Anatomy class with a real dead human body. They all gathered around the surgery table with the body covered with a white sheet. The professor started the class by telling them, 'In medicine, it is necessary to have two important qualities as a doctor: The first is that you not be disgusted by anything involving the human body.' For an example, the Professor pulled back the sheet, stuck his finger in the butt of the corpse, withdrew it and stuck it in his mouth. 'Go ahead and do the same thing,' he told his students. The students freaked out, hesitated for several minutes, but eventually took turns sticking a finger in the butt of the dead body and sucking on it. When everyone finished, the Professor looked at them calmly and told them, 'The second most important quality is observation.... I stuck in my middle finger and sucked on my index finger. Now learn to pay attention!!!!!!

You might not have known this, but a lot of non-living objects are actually either male or female. Here are some examples: FREEZER BAGS: They are male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them. PHOTOCOPIERS: These are female, because once turned off; it takes a while to warm them up again. They are an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can also wreak havoc if you push the wrong Buttons. TIRES: Tires are male, because they go bald easily and are often over inflated. HOT AIR BALLOONS: Also a male object, because to get them to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under their butt. SPONGES: These are female, because they are soft, squeezable and retain water. WEB PAGES: Female, because they're constantly being looked at and frequently getting hit on. TRAINS: Definitely male, because they always use the same old lines for picking up people. EGG TIMERS: Egg timers are female because, over time, all the weight shifts to the bottom. HAMMERS: Male, because in the last 5000 years, they've hardly changed at all, and are occasionally handy to have around. THE REMOTE CONTROL: Female. Ha! You probably thought it would be male, but consider this: It easily gives a man pleasure, he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know which buttons to push, he just keeps trying

FEMALE AND LOGICAL From the Civil Service Pensioner magazine. A Spanish teacher was explaining to her class that in Spanish, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine: “House” for instance, is feminine: “la casa.” “Pencil” however is masculine: “el lapiz.” A student asked “What gender is ‘computer‘” ? Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female, and asked them to decide for themselves whether “computer” should be a masculine or feminine noun. Each group was asked to give four reasons for it’s recommendation. The men’s group decided that “computer” should definitely be of the feminine gender (“la comptadora”), because: 1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic; 2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else; 3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later retrieval; and 4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half you pay on accessories for it. (THIS GETS BETTER) The women’s group, however, concluded that computers should be masculine (“el computador”) , because 1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on; 2. They have a lot of data but still can’t think for themselves; 3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the problem, and ; 4. As soon as you commit to one, you realise that if you had waited a little longer, you could have had a better model;. WHO WON?
