prison and work

this is the difference between WORK and PRISON.

IN spend the majority of your time in an
8X10 cell.
AT spend the majority of your time in a 6X8

IN get three meals a day.
AT only get a break for one meal and you
pay for it.

IN get time off for good behavior.
AT get more work for good behavior.

IN PRISON...the guard locks and unlocks all the doors
for you.
AT must carry around a security card and
open all the doors for yourself.

IN can watch TV and play games.
AT get fired for watching TV and playing

IN get your own toilet.
AT WORK... you have to share with some idiot who pees
on the toilet.

IN PRISON...they allow your family and friends to
AT can't speak to your family.

IN PRISON...all expenses are paid by the taxpayers
with no work required.
AT get to pay all the expenses to go to
work and then they deduct taxes from your salary to
pay for prisoners.

IN spend most of your life inside bars
wanting to get out.
AT spend most of your time wanting to get
out and go inside bars.

IN must deal with sadistic wardens.
AT WORK...they are called managers.

hahah heres another one .

Mother Nature

On the 16th hole of the golf course, Fred had hit his ball into the woods. Harry, his partner had laughed and poked fun, but then somehow managed to hit his ball into the woods, just a few yards beyond. Fred looked for a long time, getting angrier every minute. Finally, in a patch of pretty yellow buttercups, he found his ball. Instead of just continuing the game, he took his club and thrashed every single buttercup in that patch.

Suddenly, in a flash and puff of smoke, a little old woman appeared. She said, "I'm Mother Nature! Do you know how long it took me to make those buttercups? Just for that, you won't have any butter for your popcorn the rest of your life.....better still; you won't have any butter for your toast for the rest of your a matter of fact, you won't have any butter for anything the rest of your life!"

Then POOF!...she was gone.

After Fred got a hold of himself, he hollered for his friend, "Harry!... Harry!... where are you?"

Harry yells, "I'm over here, in the pussy willows."

Fred screams back..... "DON'T SWING!!! FOR GOD'S SAKE!! DON'T SWING!!!"

Following a knock on the door of an undergraduate's
room at a university, a voice asked: "May I come in?
This is the room I had when I was at college." He was
invited in.

"Yes," he went on musingly: "Same old room. Same old
furniture. Same old view from the window. Same old

He opened the closet-door. There stood a girl, looking

"That's my sister," said the occupant of the room.
"Yes," replied the visitor.
"Same old story !!! "


A man was walking along the beach when he found a
bottle. He looked around and didn't see anyone so he
opened it.

A genie appeared and thanked the man for letting him
out. The genie said, "For your kindness I will grant
you one wish, but only one.."

The man thought for a minute and said, "I have always
wanted to go to Hawaii but have never been able to
because I'm afraid of flying and ships make me
claustrophobic and ill. So, I wish for a bridge to be
built from here to Hawaii."

The genie thought for a few minutes and said, "No, I
don't think I can do that. Just think of all the work
involved with the pilings needed to hold up the
highway and how deep they would have to be to reach
the bottom of the ocean. Think of all the pavement
that would be needed.

No, that is just too much to ask."

The man thought for a minute and then told the genie,
"There is one other thing that I have always wanted.
I would like to be able to understand women. What
makes them laugh and cry, why are they temperamental,
why are they so difficult to get along with?
Basically, what makes them tick?"

The genie considered for a few minutes and said, "So,
do you want two lanes or four?

Fireman John rushed into a burning building and
rescued a beautiful young lady who was clad only in
the top half of her baby-doll nightgown.

He carried her in his arms down three flights of
stairs and saved her from her sure demise.
As they arrived safely, a wash of gratitude rushed
over her.

She looked at him with great fondness and admiration,
then said, "Oh, you are wonderful! It must have taken
great strength and courage to rescue me the way you

"Yes it did," the fireman admitted. "I had to fight
off three other firemen who were trying to get to you

Love me for who I am !

I never quite figured out why the sexual urge of men and women differ so much. And I never have figured out the whole Venus and Mars thing. I have never figured out why men think with their head and women with their heart.

FOR EXAMPLE: One evening last week, my girlfriend and I were getting into bed.

Well, the passion starts to heat up, and she eventually says "I don't feel like it, I just want you to hold me."

I said "WHAT??!! What was that?!"

So she says the words that every boyfriend on the planet dreads to hear... "You're just not in touch with my emotional needs as a woman enough for me to satisfy your physical needs as a man." She responded to my puzzled look
by saying, "Can't you just love me for who I am and not what I do for you in the bedroom?"

Realizing that nothing was going to happen that night, I went to sleep.
The very next day I opted to take the day off of work to spend time with her. We went out to a nice lunch and then went shopping at a big, big unnamed department store. I walked around with her while she tried on several different very expensive outfits. She couldn't decide which one to take so I told her we'd just buy them all. She wanted new shoes to compliment her new clothes, so I said lets get a pair for each outfit. We went onto the jewelry department where she picked out a pair of diamond earrings. Let me tell you...she was so excited. She must have thought I was
one wave short of a shipwreck. I started to think she was testing me because she asked for a tennis bracelet when she doesn't even know how to play tennis. I think I threw her for a loop when I said, "That's fine, honey."
She was almost nearing sexual satisfaction from all of the excitement. Smiling with excited anticipation she finally said, "I think this is all dear, let's go to the cashier."

I could hardly contain myself when I blurted out, "No honey, I don't feel like it."
Her face just went completely blank as her jaw dropped with a baffled WHAT?"
I then said "honey! I just want you to HOLD this stuff for a while. You're just not in touch with my financial needs as a man enough for me to satisfy your shopping needs as a woman." And just when she had this look like she was going to kill me, I added, "Why can't you just love me for who I am and not for the things I buy you?"

Apparently I'm not having sex tonight either

who is smart, men or women?

A woman was out golfing one day when she hit the ball into the
woods. She went into the woods to look for it and found a frog
in a trap.
The frog said to her, "If you release me from this trap, I will
grant you three wishes."

The woman freed the frog, and the frog said, "Thank you, but I
failed to mention that there was a condition to your wishes.
Whatever you wish for, your husband will get ten times more or

The woman said, "That's okay."

For her first wish, she wanted to be the most beautiful woman in
the world.

The frog warned her, "You do realize that this wish will also
make your husband the most handsome man in
the world, an Adonis who women will flock to."

The woman replied, "That's okay, because I will be the most
beautiful woman and he will have eyes only for me."
So, KAZAM-she's the most beautiful woman in the world!

For her second wish, she wanted to be the richest woman in the
world. The frog said, "That will make your
husband the richest man in the world and he will be ten times
richer than you."

The woman said, "That's okay, because what's mine is his and
what's his is mine." So, KAZAM-she's the richest woman in the

The frog then inquired about her third wish, and she answered,
"I'd like a mild heart attack."

Moral of the story:

Women are clever. Don't mess with them.

Attention female readers: This is the end of the joke for you.
Stop here and continue feeling good.

Male readers: Please scroll down.

The man had a heart attack ten times milder than his wife!!!

Moral of the story: Women are really dumb but think they're
really smart.

Let them continue to think that way and just enjoy the show.

but that doesnt make women any more dumb that men as men tend to have this kind of over confidence quite often.

One day in the jungle a chimpanzee invented some tools to eat his dinner. One tool was a flat stick sharpened along one edge, which he used to cut his food. The other was a stick with four smaller sticks attached to the end, each sharpened to a point, which he used to spear his food and place it in his mouth. The chimp was very proud of his inventions which he called his ‘one point tool’ and his ‘four point tool.’

One day he awoke to find that the four point tool was missing. The chimp was distraught. He ran around the jungle trying to find his precious tool. First he came upon the lion.
"Lion, Lion!" he cried, "Have you seen my four point tool?"
"No. Replied the lion, I have not seen your four point tool."

Then the chimp came upon the gorilla.
"Gorilla, Gorilla! he cried, Have you seen my four point tool?"
"No, Replied the gorilla, I have not seen your four point tool."

Then the chimp came upon the jaguar.
"Jaguar, Jaguar! he cried, Have you seen my four point tool?"
"Yup!" replied the jaguar, "I have seen your four point tool."
"Well where is it?" inquired the chimp.
"I ate it." Said the jaguar, smugly.
"Why would you do that?" Cried the chimp.

"Because," replied the big cat, "I am a four point tool eater Jaguar..."
