  3. April 30/May 1, 2005 Maurice and Sarah were getting old and Maurice felt his wife was losing her hearing. He decided to stage a test. One day, as Sarah was reading the paper, he stood a distance behind her chair and asked, in a conversational voice, "Sarah, can you hear me?" Silence. He moved towards her. "Can you hear me?" Still silence. Finally, he moved directly behind her chair and bent over, just inches from her ear, "Can you hear me?" Sarah replied, "For the third time, Maurice, yes I can!"
  4. Thanks for the warm wishes guys but where are my presents? Don't birthday boys always get one? What can I say? I invited a few friends (well 10 actually), most even did come. We had a barbeque in our garden and great fun, espescially when playing darts (I got an electronic dart board) - although our dog escaped almost twice. I got some money, perfume from my sister, a Simpsons-DVD (always wondered how the original voices would sond although the dubbed German version is a good one) - and 2 little comic books. By 11 p.m. the last guest left. Oh, and I also got a few returnable bottles. He wa

  6. April 28, 2005 "Hey, mister! This is a public phone. You've been on it for half an hour and haven't said a word." "Leave me alone - I'm speaking with my wife."

  8. April 26, 2005 An archaeologist was digging in the Negev Desert in Israel and came upon a casket containing a mummy. After examining it, he called the curator of the Israel museum in Jerusalem. "I've just discovered a 3,000 year old mummy of a man who died at heart failure!" the excited scientist exclaimed. The curator replied, "Bring him in. We'll check it out." A week later, the amazed curator called the archaeologist, "You were right about both the mummy's age and cause of death. How in the world did you know?" "Easy. There was a piece of paper in his hand that said, '10,000 Shekels on

  10. April 23/24, 2005 A big executive boarded a New York-to-Chicago train. He explained to the porter, "I'm a heavy sleeper, and I want you to be sure and wake me at 3:00 a.m. to get off in Buffalo. Regardless of what I say, get me up, for I have some important business there." The next morning he awakened in Chicago. He found the porter and really poured it on with abusive language. After he had left, someone said, "How could you stand there and take that kind of talk from that man?" To which the porter responded, "That ain't nothing. You should have heard what the man said that I put off in
  11. Me being German I have to reply to this article in the following way: I'm just glad TalonRider did not write this crap himself (although he's a smoker himself). It's a brazennes to compare the "German past" (60 - in words: SIXTY years ago - do we still blame the US for segregating blacks and whites during the 1860s?) with the harmless fact of firing smokers. What's so bad about firing unproductive workers with such a heavy character weakness? Solution: GIVE UP SMOKING and spend the money for something USEFUL! What's so hard about that? Do I really have to be "proud" to never have even touch

From Heinz Tschabitscher,Your Guide to Email. http://email.about.com/cs/emailtrivia/a/pope_email.htm --- Email Pope Benedict XVI The email address of Pope Benedict XVI is benedictxvi@vatican.va.

  14. April 21, 2005 Mark Twain was once asked the difference between a mistake and a blunder. He explained it this way: "If you walk into a restaurant and walk out with someone's silk umbrella and leave your own cotton one, that is a mistake.

  19. VATICAN CITY: Pope Benedict XVI said Saturday he hopes to continue the openness with the media fostered by his predecessor and thanked journalists for their coverage during the "historically important'' events during the papal transition.

Benedict noted that John Paul had been "a great artisan'

I want the roast chicken." "Listen to me. The roast chicken is not for you. Have the boiled beef." "What is this? Don't you suppose I know what I want? Bring me the roast chicken at once!" "I will not do that. I know better than you what you want." "Listen," said the diner, striking the table with a resounding blow, "get me the manager!" The manager, drawn by the noise, came bustling over. "What the hell is going o

Abe replies, "My wife is poisoning me." The Rabbi is very surprised by this and asks, "How can that be?" Abe then pleads, "I'm telling you, I'm certain she's poisoning me. What should I do?" The Rabbi then offers, "Tell you what. Let me talk to her. I'll see what I can find out and I'll let you know." A week later the Rabbi calls Abe and says, "Well, I spoke to your wife. I spoke to her on the phone for three hours. You want my a
