Now quit kidding iraghava, or somebody might take you seriously. There's only one person on T-BHP with a 9000cc quad turbo engine with platinum plugs, & that's me. Soon, it'll be 12000cc when I get my last cylinder to start working again.

'Till that's done, I'm utilizing that unused cylinder as a reservoir for windscreen washer fluid.

father watched his young daughter playing in the garden. He smiled as he reflected on how sweet and pure his little girl was. He thought about her seeing the wonders of nature through such innocent eyes. Suddenly she just stopped and stared at the ground. He went over to her to see what work of God had captured her attention. He noticed she was looking at two spiders mating.

"Daddy, what are those two spiders doing?" she asked.

"They're mating," her father replied.
"What do you call the spider on top?" she asked.
"So, the other one is a Mommy Longlegs?" the little girl asked.

As his heart soared with the joy of such a cute and innocent question, He replied "No dear. Both of them are Daddy Longlegs."

The little girl, looking a little puzzled, thought for a moment, then, raised her foot and stomped them flat and said, "Well, we're not having any of that Brokeback-Mountain **** in our garden."

Email to Agony Aunt personal advice column in the USA

Here is an email written to an Agony Aunt personal advice
column in the USA.


Dear Abby,

I've never written to you before, but I really need your advice on what
could be a crucial decision. I've suspected for some time now that my wife
has been cheating on me.

The usual signs... phone rings but if I answer, the caller hangs up. My wife
has been going out with the girls a lot recently although when I ask their
names she always says, "Just some friends from work, you don't know them."

I always stay awake to look out for her taxi coming home, but she always
walks down the drive. Although I can hear a car driving off, as if she has
gotten out of the car round the corner. Why? Maybe she wasn't in a taxi? I
once picked her cell phone up just to see what time it was and she went
berserk and screamed that I should never touch her phone again and why was I
checking up on her.

Anyway, I have never approached the subject with my wife. I think deep down
I just didn't want to know the truth, but last night she went out again and
I decided to really check on her.

I decided I was going to park my Harley Davidson motorcycle next to the
garage and then hide behind it so I could get a good view of the whole
street when she came home. It was at that moment, crouching behind my
Harley, that I noticed that the valve covers on my engine seemed to be
leaking a little oil.

Is this something I can fix myself or should I take it back to the dealer?

Dear john...

Dear Husband:
Iím writing you this letter to tell you that Iím leaving you for good.Iíve been a good woman to you for seven years and I have nothing to show for it. These last two weeks have been hell. Your boss called to tell me that you had quit your job today and that was the last straw.Last week, you came home and didnít notice that I had gotten my hair and nails done, cooked your favorite meal and even wore a brand new negligee. You came home and ate in two minut es, and went straight to sleep after watching the game. You donít tell me you love me anymore, you donít touch me or anything. Either youíre cheating or you donít love me anymore, what ever the case is, Iím gone.
P.S. If youíre trying to find me, donít. Your BROTHER and I are moving away to West Virginia together! Have a great life!
Your EX-Wife.
Dear Ex-Wife
Nothing has made my day more than receiving your letter. Itís true
that you and I have been married for seven years, although a good woman is a far cry from what youíve been. I watch sports so much to try to drown out your constant nagging. Too bad that doesnít work.
I did notice when you cut off all of your hair last week, the first thing that came to mind was ďYou look just like a man!Ē My mother raised me to not say anything if you canít say anything nice.
When you cooked my favorite meal, you must have gotten me confused with MY BROTHER, because I stopped eating pork seven years ago.
I went to sleep on you when you had on that new negligee because the price tag was still on it. I prayed that it was a coincidence that my brother had just borrowed fifty dollars from me that morning and your negligee was $49.99.
After all of this, I still loved you and felt that we could work it out. So when I discovered that I had hit the lotto for ten million dollars, I quit my job and bought us two tickets to Jamaica. But when I got home you were gone. Everything happens for a reason I guess. I hope you have the filling life you always wanted.
My lawyer said with your letter that you wrote, you wonít get a dime from me. So take care.
P.S. I donít know if I ever told you this but Carl, my brother was born Carla. I hope thatís not a problem.
Rich As Hell and Free!

Saw him on some Times today show - looking as if he raided a Ferrari discount store - wearing red ferrari shirt, shoes and talking about how he filters potential customers to the extent of say that they do not like the kind of people who chew paan.....

Guy looked like a total joker

One for the road...

A woman goes to her boyfriend's parents' house for dinner. As it's her first time meeting the family, she's quite nervous.

They all sit down and begin eating a fine meal.

The woman then feels a little discomfort, thanks to her nervousness and the broccoli casserole that she consumed. The gas pains almost made her eyes water.

Left with no other choice, she decides to relieve herself a bit and lets out a dainty little fart. It wasn't loud, but everyone at the table heard the poof.

Before she even had a chance to be embarrassed, her boyfriend's father looked over at the dog that had been snoozing under the woman's chair, and said in a rather stern voice, "Tommy!".

The woman thought, "This is great!" and a big smile came across her face.

A couple of minutes later, she was beginning to feel the pain again. This time, she didn't even hesitate.

She let a much louder and longer rrrrrip.
The father again looked at the dog and yelled, "Dammit Tommy!"

Once again the woman smiled and thought "Yes!"

A few minutes later the woman had to let another rip.
This time she didn't even think about it. She let a fart rip that rivaled a freight train whistle blowing.

Once again, the father looked at the dog with disgust and yelled,
"Dammit Tommy, get away from her, before she takes a dump on you!"
