Randy the RoosterA farmer wanted to have his hens serviced, so he went to the market looking for a rooster. He was hoping he could get a special rooster, one that would service all of his many hens, and when he told this to the market vendor, the vendor replied: "I have just the rooster for you. Randy here is the horniest rooster you will ever see!" So the farmer took Randy back to the farm. Before setting him loose in the henhouse, though, he gave Randy a little pep talk. "Randy", he said, "I'm counting on you to do your stuff". And without a word , he strutted into the henhouse. Randy was as fast as he was furious, mounting each hen like a thunderbolt. There was much squawking and many feathers flying, til Randy had finished having his way with each hen. But Randy didn't stop there, he went in to the barn and mounted all the horses, one by one and still at the same frantic pace. Then he went to the pighouse, where he did the same. The farmer, watching all of this with disbelief, cried out, "Stop, RanRandy the Rooster8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Spring Where?Seeing that it is the 7th of April I have really been wondering where the heck spring is. Here we have lots of snow, cold weather, and no real spring in sight. The bad news is that Winnipeg is located south of a large lake (also called Winnipeg), which is fed primarily by the Red River. The Red River flows north into Manitoba at border with North Dakota, and really is the middle of the basin of a former inland sea. Therefore each year a whole lot of water flows this way. The city where I live is protected by a massive flood way that is activated to divert the water around the city. Unfortunately all of the communities along the river are under threat of flooding and although they have been through it before it is never an easy time for them. So as much as I wish for warm weather, and even a cleansing rainstorm, we need to have a slow melt, and no more precipitation for a while.Spring Where?8 months ago in Personal More Like This

Circle Flies....A farmer got pulled over by a state trooper for speeding, and the trooper started to lecture the farmer about his speed, and in general began to throw his weight around to try to make the farmer uncomfortable.Circle Flies....8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Finally, the trooper got around to writing out the ticket, and as he was doing that he kept swatting at some flies that were buzzing around his head. The farmer said, "Having some problems with circle flies there, are ya?"
The trooper stopped writing the ticket and said--"Well yeah, if that's what they are--I never heard of circle flies." So the farmer says--"Well, circle flies are common on farms. See, they're called circle flies because they're almost always found circling around the back end of a horse."
The trooper says, "Oh," and goes back to writing the ticket. Then after a minute he stops and says, "Hey...wait a minute, are you trying to call me a horses ass?"
The farmer says, "Oh no, officer. I have too much respect for law enforcement and police officers to even think ab

Despite the kitchen I work in catching fire, Easter went well. I worked 12.5 hours that day, and it wasn't nearly as stressful and crazy as past holidays. I didn't mind not receiving holiday pay either (for whatever reason the resort only considers Christmas, New Year's, and July 4th to be holidays). I think the restaurant will probably be closed earlier than planned now given the circumstance. My ex-boss (lol, is that acceptable to say?) has ran into my mom a few times and has been asking about me and my availability. Though it could be nice to have a little bit of time off work. Today I began trying to clean out what will be my home soon. I doubt it's been cleaned in years, ther
Ah..the golden years....Three ladies were discussing the travails of getting older. One said,Ah..the golden years....9 months ago in Personal More Like This
"Sometimes I catch myself with a jar of mayonnaise in my hand, while
standing in front of the refrigerator, and I can't remember whether I need
to put it away, or start making a sandwich."
The second lady chimed in with, "Yes, sometimes I find myself on the landing
of the stairs and can't remember whether I was on my way up or on my way
The third one responded, " Well, ladies, I'm glad I don't have that problem.
Knock on wood," as she rapped her knuckles on the table, and then said,
"That must be the door, I'll get it!"

A Miracle...Water to wineA Miracle...9 months ago in Personal More Like This
An Irish priest is driving down to New York and gets stopped for speeding. The state trooper smells alcohol on the priest's breath and then sees an empty wine bottle on the floor of the car.
He says, "Sir, have you been drinking?"
"Just water," says the priest.
The trooper says, "Then why do I smell wine?"
The priest looks at the bottle and says, "Good Lord! He's done it again!"

Two HuntersTwo hunters are in the woods, when one of them suddenly collapses. He wasn't breathing, and his eyes looked glazed. Thinking quickly, the other guy grabs his cell phone and calls for help. He shouts at the emergency operator, "I think my friend is dead! What do I do!?"Two Hunters9 months ago in Personal More Like This
"Calm down", the operator says in a soothing voice, "I can help you. But first, we need to make sure he's dead."
The phone goes silent for a second, then the operator hears a gunshot; "Ok", says the hunter, "now what?"
Mommy.. How come..A mother and her very young son were flying Southwest Airlines from Kansas City to Chicago.Mommy.. How come..9 months ago in Personal More Like This
The little boy (who had been looking out the window) turned to his Mother and asked, "If big dogs have baby dogs and big cats have baby cats, why don't big planes have baby planes?"
The mother (who couldn't think of an answer) told her son to ask the Flight Attendant. So the boy went down the aisle and asked the Flight Attendant.
The busy Flight Attendant smiled, and said, "Did your mother tell you to ask me? The boy said, " Yes, she did." "Well, then, you go and tell your mother that there are no baby planes because Southwest always pulls out on time. Have your mother explain that to you."

Lost Gravy Ladle....John invited his mother over for dinner. During the meal, his mother couldn't help noticing how handsome John's roommate was. She had long been suspicious of Johns' sexual orientation and this only made her more curious.Lost Gravy Ladle....9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she started to wonder if there was more between John and the roommate than met the eye.
Reading his mom's thoughts, John volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you, Mark and I are just roommates."
About a week later, Mark came to John and said, "Ever since your mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find the beautiful silver gravy ladle. You don't suppose she took it, do you?"
John said, "Well, I doubt it, but I'll write her a letter just to be sure." So he sat down and wrote: "Dear Mother, I'm not saying you 'did' take a gravy ladle from my house, and I'm not saying you 'did not' take a gravy ladle. But the fact remains that one has been missing ever since you were here for dinn

A married couple was on holiday in Pakistan they were touring around the marketplace looking at the goods and such, when they passed a small sandal shop.
From the inside they head a Pakistani accent say, "you foreigners come in. Come in my humble shop." so the married couple walked in.
The Pakistani man said to them, "I have some special sandals I think you'd be interested in. They make you wild at sex like a great dessert camel"
Well, the wife was really interested in buying the sandals after what the man had claimed, but her husband felt he really didn't need them, being a sex hero he as.
The husband, "how could sandals make you into a sex freak?"
The Pakistani man replied, why don't you see for yourself?"
Well , the husband after much badgering from his wife, finally conceded to try them on.
As soon as he slipped then onto this feet, he got this wild look in his eyes, something his wife hadn't seen in years-- raw sexual power.

Officer: Ma'am, you were speeding.
