The best contraceptive is a glass of cold water: not before or after, but instead

The difference between light and hard is that you can sleep with a light on.

Sex relieves tension - love causes it.

Men wake up aroused in the morning. We can't help it. We just wake up and we want you. And the women are thinking, "How can he want me the way I look in the morning?" It's because we can't see you. We have no blood anywhere near our optic nerve.

If you use the electric vibrator near water, you will come and go at the same time.

Desire is in men a hunger, in women only an appetite.

"Losing my virginity was a career move." (Madonna)

"I chased a girl for two years only to discover that her tastes were exactly like mine: We were both crazy about girls."

A girl's legs are her best friends, but the best of friends must part.

Some MORE Good Ones!!

These are ACTUAL statements from insurance forms where car drivers, who tried to summarize accident details in as few words as possible.

Coming home I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I don't have.

The other car collided with mine without giving warning of its intent.

In my attempt to kill a fly, I drove into a telephone pole.

As I approached the intersection a sign suddenly appeared in a place where no sign had ever appeared before, making me unable to avoid the accident.

I saw a slow-moving, sad-faced gentleman as he bounced off the hood of my car.

The indirect cause of the accident was a little guy in a small car with a big mouth.

A pedestrian hit me and went under my car.

I thought my window was down, but I found out it was up when I put my head through it.

To avoid hitting the bumper of the car in front, I struck the pedestrian.

The pedestrian had no idea which way to run, so I ran over him.

On a serious note, I really like those error messages in Windows, they are indeed more realistic and informative than the linux error messages, but you can do nothing about them, that is the frustration.

One of my friends had a great flair for writing. He used to say ..." I want to be such a great writer that people who read my writings should react to my work from the deapth of their heart,
should jump in joy when I write that something worked,
should feel the frustration when I write some thing has gone wrong,
should feel the agony when I write about that something that hurts,
should weep when they hear from me that they just lost something,
should react in anger and throw the things around when I write somebody else outwitt them,
thereby trigger every emotion in you with what I write"

His dream came true, Now he authors error messages for Microsoft.

This is not really a joke but a true fact ...nevertheless funny

My company was a small MNC when I joined and now it is a big one after aquisition. As a small company hardly there were binding processes, here are a few example of creativity of such a situation....

Once an engineer in our US office sent a review comments captured in a file called "SCUD.doc", there was an updated binary of that work when was sent in a file named "Agni.bin"

There was only one engineer for VxWorks BSP development, he had his own version control mechanism,
first image "h.bin"
second update "ha.bin"
third one "han.bin"
Release image "hanuman.bin"

He used to have debug codes which were named, "wasworkingyesterdaybutnotworkingtoday.bin"

One more real life incedent I can't stop laughing.

We were on a jungle safari on those rattling busses in Nagarhole national park.. as usual we were disappointed as we did not see any tiger on that trip.
I asked the driver of that bus "have you ever seen a tiger during such safari rides?"

reply came " last month when forest minister had come to visit the park, we saw the tiger!"

Last Request...

Two prisoners, sentenced to die in the electric chair on the same day were led down to the room in which they would meet their maker. The priest had given the last rites, the formal speech had been given by the warden, and a final prayer had been said among the participants.

The warden, turning to the first man, solemnly asked, "Son, do you have a last request?"

To which the man replied, "Yes sir, I do. I love dance music. Could you please play "The Macarena" for me one last time?"

"Certainly," replied the warden.

He turned to the other man and asked, "Well, what about you, son? What is your final request?"

"Please," said the condemned man, "KILL ME FIRST."

This ain't hilarious but quite funny i should say, T-Bhpians foward this to all the gals you know this is pretty much our "Code"..

We always hear the rules from the female side atlast a rule -book of men, somebody has actually taken out time to write this....
All the rules are marked as "1" .. ON PURPOSE !!.

1. Men are NOT Mind Readers !! ...

1. Know how to work the toilet seat, you are a big girl now!!, you need it down we need it up, you never hear us complaining when you leave it down.

1. Sunday sports is like changing tides, or the full moon, it has always happened so let it be !!.

1. Crying is BLACKMAIL !!.

1. Let us get this straight:
a) Subtle hints don't work
b) Strong hints don't work.
c) Obvious hints don't work.
OMG .. Just say it !!!!!!.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you need help solving it, That's what we do, sympathy is what your girlfriends are for!!.

1. Anything we boys say 6 Months back is void in an argument. Infact anything is inadmissible in an argument, 7 Hours after we say it,
*** note promises are void after 3 Hours.

1. If you don't dress up like Victoria's Secret - Girls, don't expect us to act like 'Soap Opera Stars'.

1. Whenever possible say what you have to during commercial breaks.

1. Christopher Columbus din't need directions nor do we..

1. All men see only in 16 Colour Default windows format!!, Peach for example is a fruit not a colour, Pumpkin is also a fruit, we have no idea what mauve is.

1. If it itches we scratch that's what we do.

1. If we ask what is wrong ? , you you reply "nothing" , we will act like nothing is wrong. We know you are lying but it is not worth the hassle to find out.

1. When we have to go somewhere whatever you wear is fine by us!!! .

1. You have enough clothes.

1. You have too many shoes.

1. I am in Shape round is a shape.

1. No we don't have cotton in our ears... so don't keep repeating the same thing again & again... !!! ..
