What Santa Really Wants to Drive

Poor Santa, stuck with his old ugly sleigh.

If he could get a really hot ride and ditch Rudolph and the other reindeer, he'd probably want to drive one of these amazingly cool new cars.

Check these concept cars out and tell me which you think would be best for Santa.
I think he should go for the Ecologically Green Hummer!

Mike was going to be married to Karen, so his father sat him down for a little chat. He said, "Mike, let me tell you something. On my wedding night in our honeymoon suite I took off my pants, handed them to your mother and said, 'Here try these on..' She did and said, 'These are too big! I can't wear them.' I replied, 'Exactly. I wear the pants in this family and I always will!' Ever since that night we have never had any problems."

"Hmmm," said Mike. He thought that might be a good thing to try.

On his honeymoon, Mike took off his pants and said to Karen," Here try these on." She tried them on and said, "These are too large. They don't fit me. Mike said, "Exactly. I wear the pants in this family and I always will. I don't want you to ever forget that."

Then Karen took off her pants and handed them to Mike. She said, "Here you try on mine." He did and said, "I can't get into your pants."

Karen said, "Exactly. And if you don't change your smart-ass attitude, you never will."

Female Bloggers

A group of female bloggers walk into a bar.

One of the female bloggers tells the bartender to line up a row of drinks for all of them.

The gals lift their glasses and toast, "Here's to 51 days!" and they proceed to down their drinks.

Once again, they tell the bartender to "line 'em up", and once again they toast 51 days and down their drinks.

The bartender says, "I don't get it. Why in the world are you toasting 51 days?"

One of the female bloggers explains, "We just finished a jigsaw puzzle. It had written on the box '2-4 years,' but we finished it in 51 days!"

An Italian, a Scotsman and a Chinese fellow

An Italian, a Scotsman and a Chinese fellow are hired at a construction site.

The foreman points out a huge pile of sand and says to the Italian guy, "You're in charge of sweeping."

To the Scotsman he says, "You're in charge of shoveling."

And to the Chinese guy, "You're in charge of supplies."

He then says, "Now, I have to leave for a little while. I expect you guys to make a dent in that there pile."

So the foreman goes away for a couple hours and when he returns, the pile of sand is untouched.

He asks the Italian, "Why didn't you sweep any of it?"

The Italian replies, "I no hava no broom. You saida to the Chinese a fella that he a wasa in a charge of supplies, but he hasa disappeared and I no coulda finda him nowhere."

Then the foreman turns to the Scotsman and says, "And you, I thought I told you to shovel this pile."

The Scotsman replies, "Aye, ye did lad, boot ah could nay get meself a shoovel! Ye left th' Chinese gadgie in chairge of supplies, boot ah could nay fin' him either."

The foreman is really angry now and storms off toward the pile of sand to look for the Chinese guy ...

Just then, the Chinese guy leaps out from behind the pile of sand and yells . . . . . .

A recent study .....

A recent study found that the type of male face that a woman is attracted to can vary considerably depending upon where she is in her menstrual cycle.

It seems that if a woman is ovulating then she is more attracted to a man with rugged and masculine features.

However, if she is menstruating, she is more inclined to be drawn to a man who is doused in petrol and set on fire, with scissors embedded deep into his temple and a cricket stump shoved up his ar*e.


10 Things....

..From the BBCi
1. Cornish pasties may, it seems, come from Devon.

2. Former US president Gerald Ford was born as Leslie Lynch King. His mother re-married Gerald Ford Senior, after which the future president became known as Gerald Ford Junior.

3. Liverpool footballing legend Bill Shankly officiated at women's football matches.

4. Birdwatchers call themselves "birders", not "twitchers".

5. Fathers tend to determine the height of their child, mother's their weight.

6. Al-Qaeda test chemical weapons on rabbits, according to a former operative.

7. Al-Jazeera International, the English-speaking branch of the Middle East-based news channel, is not available in the US (except over the internet).

8. Panspermia is the idea that life on Earth originated on another planet.

9. Maltese people are the heaviest in Europe, with a body mass index of 26.6, compared to 25.4 in the UK.

10. Those crumbling euro notes… it looks like the drug crystal methamphetamine caused the paper to disintegrate.

Move him into the sun -
Gently its touch awoke him once,
At home, whispering of fields unsown.
Always it woke him, even in France,
Until this morning and this snow.
If anything might rouse him now
The kind old sun will know.

Think how it wakes the seeds, -
Woke, once, the clays of a cold star.
Are limbs, so dear-achieved, are sides,
Full-nerved, - still warm, - too hard to stir?
Was it for this the clay grew tall?
- O what made fatuous sunbeams toil
To break earth's sleep at all?
