Nostalgic! This thread reminds me of my dial-up days. That was 7 years back.

Haha! Nice thread. Looking at the topic, I thought it's about model names like Corolla (part of a flower), Superb (simply great, excellent), Esteem (high regard) etc.

Then it would be funny to know the meaning of a Laura

Let me be the fall guy.
Let's just say if Laura was a man, she would choose Dick as her name.

The joke I did read on this said that drivers were against this car as it confused them when they were asked to ready the car for the lady of the house to go out.

Santa Banta, strolling in the garden, find a bag and it has two bombs ticking in it.
Santa: Chal inhe police station de aate hain.
Banta: Par raste mein koi bum fat gaya to?
Santa: (thinks awhile and says brightly) to kah denge ki ek hi mila tha!

Farts: A Poem

FARTS

A fart is a pleasant thing,
It gives the belly ease,
It warms the bed in winter,
And suffocates the fleas.

A fart can be quiet,
A fart can be loud,
Some leave a powerful,
Poisonous cloud

A fart can be short,
Or a fart can be long,
Some farts have been known
To sound like a song.....

A fart can create
A most curious medley,
A fart can be harmless,
Or silent, and deadly.

A fart might not smell,
While others are vile,
A fart may pass quickly,
Or linger a while......

A fart can occur
In a number of places,
And leave everyone there,
With strange looks on their faces .

From wide-open prairie,
To small elevators,
A fart will find all of
Us sooner or later..

But farts are all bad,
Is simply not true-
We must never forget...
Sweet old farts like you!

A couple of jokes from me on children. Some may be repeated but look logical for people who have actually experienced this
--------------------------------------------------------------
To those of us who have children in our lives, whether they are our own, grandchildren, nieces, nephews or students... here is something to make you chuckle.

Whenever your children are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to His own children..

After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve.

And the first thing he said was ' DON'T !'

'Don't what?' Adam replied.
'Don't eat the forbidden fruit.' God said.
'Forbidden fruit? We have forbidden fruit? Hey Eve..we have forbidden fruit! '
'No Way!'
'Yes way!'
'Do NOT eat the fruit!' said God.

'Why?'
'Because I am your Father and I said so ! ' God replied, wondering why He hadn't stopped creation after making the elephants
A few minutes later, God saw His children having an apple break and He was ticked ! 'Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit?' God asked.

'Uh huh,' Adam replied.
'Then why did you? 'said the Father.
'I don't know,'said Eve.
'She started it! 'Adam said.
'Did not! '
'Did too! '
'DID NOT! '
Having had it with the two of them, God's punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own. Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed.

If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give children wisdom and they haven't taken it, don't be hard on yourself.

If God had trouble raising children, what makes you think it would be a piece of cake for you?

----------------------------------------------------
THINGS TO THINK ABOUT!

1. You spend the first two years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next sixteen telling them to sit down and shut up.

2. Grandchildren are God's reward for not killing your own children.

3. Mothers of teens now know why some animals eat their young.

4. Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word what you shouldn't have said

5. The main purpose of holding children's parties is to remind yourself that there are children more awful than your own

6. We childproofed our homes, but they are still getting in.



ADVICE FOR THE DAY:

Be nice to your kids.. They will choose your nursing home one day

AND FINALLY:

IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF TENSION AND YOU GET A HEADACHE, DO WHAT IT SAYS ON THE ASPIRIN BOTTLE:

'TAKE TWO ASPIRIN' AND 'KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN'!!!!!
