Two sisters, one blonde and one brunette, inherit the family ranch.

Unfortunately, after just a few years, they are in financial trouble. In order to keep the bank from repossessing the ranch, they need to purchase a bull so that they can breed their own stock. The brunette balances their chequebook, then takes their last $600 dollars out west to another ranch where a man has a prize bull for sale. Upon leaving, she tells her sister, "When I get there, if I decide to buy the bull, I'll contact you to drive out after me and haul it home."

The brunette arrives at the man's ranch, inspects the bull, and decides she wants to buy it. The man tells her that he can sell it to her for $599, no less. After paying him, she drives to the nearest town to send her sister a telegram to tell her the news. She walks into the telegraph office, and says, "I want to send a telegram to my sister telling her that I've bought a bull for our ranch and I need her to hitch the trailer to our pick-up truck and drive out here so we can haul it home." The telegraph operator explains that he'll be glad to help her, then adds, "It costs just 99 cents a word."

Well, after paying for the bull, the brunette only has $1 left. She realises that she'll only be able to send her sister one word. After thinking for a few minutes, she nods, and says, "I want you to send her the word, 'comfortable'."

The telegraph operator shakes his head. "How is she ever going to know that you want her to hitch the trailer to your pick-up truck and drive out here to haul that bull back to your ranch if you send her the word, 'comfortable'?"

The brunette explains, "My sister's blonde. She'll read it real slow."

A man and his wife were woken at 3 o'clock in the morning by a loud banging on the door. The man got up and went to the door where a drunken stranger, standing in the pouring rain, asked for a push.
"Not a chance," said the husband, "it is three o'clock in the morning!"
He slammed the door and returned to bed.
"Who was that?" asked his wife.
"Just some drunk guy asking for a push”
"Did you help him?"
"No, I did not, it is three in the morning and it is pouring!"
"Well, you have a short memory. Can't you remember about three months ago when we broke down and those two guys helped us? I think you should help him, and you should be ashamed of yourself!"
The man did as he was told, got dressed, and went out into the pouring rain. He called out into the dark...............................
"Hello, are you still there?"
"Yes," came back the answer.
"Do you still need a push?"
"Yes, please!"
"Where are you?"
"Over here on the swing!"

This man goes along to the Patent Office with some of his new designs. He says to the clerk, "I'd like to register my new invention. It's a folding bottle."
"OK," says the clerk. "What do you call it?"
"A fottle, replies the inventor."
"A fottle? That's a stupid name! Can't you think of something else?"
"I can think about it. I've got something else though. It's a folding carton."
"And what do you call that?" asks the clerk.
"A farton", replies the inventor.
"That's rude. You can't possibly call it that!"
"In that case," says the inventor... "You're really going to hate the name of my folding bucket."

Since you started on the one-liners

You invented Tipp Ex, correct me if I'm wrong.

I'm so lazy I've got a smoke alarm with a snooze button.

I bought some Armageddon cheese today, and it said on the

packet 'Best Before End'

So I went to buy a watch, and the man in the shop said

"Analogue." I said "No, just a watch."

I went into a shop and I said, "Can someone sell me a

kettle." The bloke said "Kenwood" I said, "Where is he?"

So I went in to a pet shop. I said, "Can I buy a goldfish?"

The guy said, "Do you want an aquarium?" I said, "I don't

care what star sign it is."

I was in this restaurant and I asked for something herby.

They gave me a Volkswagen with no driver.

My mate is in love with two schoolbags. He's bisatchel.

I went to the doctor. I said to him "I'm frightened of

lapels." He said, "You've got cholera."

So I met the bloke who invented crosswords today. I can't

remember his name, it's P something T something R.

I was reading this book today, The History Of Glue, and

I couldn't put it down.

I phoned the local ramblers club today, and this bloke

just went on and on.

My mate asked me "What do you think of voluntary work??

I said "I wouldn't do it if you paid me."

So I was in the jungle and there was this monkey with a

tin opener. I said, "You don't need a tin opener to peel

a banana." He said, "No, this is for the custard."

This policeman came up to me with a pencil and a piece

of very thin paper. He said, "I want you to trace someone

for me."

So this lorry full of tortoises collided with a van full

of terrapins. It was a turtle disaster.

So I told my girlfriend I had a job in a bowling alley.

She said "Tenpin?" I said, "No, it's a permanent job."

So I told my mum that I'd opened a theatre. She said,

"Are you having me on?" I said, "Well I'll give you

an audition, but I'm not promising you anything."

I phoned the local builders today, I said to them "Can

I have a skip outside my house?" He said, "I'm not

stopping you!"

So this cowboy walks in to a German car showroom and

he says "Audi!"

So I fancied a game of darts with my mate. He said,

"Nearest the bull goes first" He went "Baah" and I

went "Moo" He said "You're closest"

So I met this bloke with a didgeridoo and he was playing

Dancing Queen on it. I thought that's Aboriginal.

I visited the offices of the RSPCA today. You

couldn't swing a cat in there.

I was stealing things in the supermarket today while

balanced on the shoulders of vampires. I was charged

with shoplifting on three counts.

I bought a train ticket and the driver said "Eurostar"

I said "Well I've been on telly but I'm no Dean Martin.

I phoned the local gym and I asked if they could teach

me how to do the splits. He said, "How flexible are you?"

I said, "I can't make Tuesdays or Thursdays."

So I went to the local video shop and I said, "Can

I take out The Elephant Man?" He said, "He's not

your type." I said "How about Batman Forever?" He

said, "No, you'll have to bring it back tomorrow"

Some places I've visited ---

I have been in many places, but I've never been in Cahoots. Apparently, you
can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.
I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.

I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to be
driven there. I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family
and work. I live close so it's a short drive.
I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not too
much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit
there too often.
I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.
Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting older.

One of my favourite places to be is in Suspense! It really gets the
adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart! At my age I need all the
stimuli I can get!
And, sometimes I think I am in Vincible but life shows me I am not.
People keep telling me I'm in Denial but I'm positive I've never been there

I have been in Deepshit many times; the older I get, the easier it is to get
there. I actually kind of enjoy it there.

SUBJECT: The Pastor

A Pastor goes to the dentist for a set of false teeth. The first Sunday after he gets his new teeth, he talks for only eight minutes. The second Sunday, he talks for only ten minutes. The following Sunday, he talks for 2 hours and 48 minutes. The congregation had to mob him to get him down from the pulpit and they asked him what happened. The Pastor explains the first Sunday his gums hurt so bad he couldn't talk for more than 8 minutes. The second Sunday his gums hurt too much to talk for more than 10 minutes. But, the third Sunday,he put his wife's teeth in by mistake and he couldn't shut up...
