What A Week!

by Sac Barb

When you have a bad week, here's something that will make you laugh and feel better.  

The mother of a 17-year-old girl was concerned that her daughter was having sex.  Worried the girl might become pregnant and adversely impact the family's status, she consulted the family doctor.

The doctor told her that teenagers today were very willful and any attempt to stop the girl would probably result in rebellion. He then told her to arrange for her daughter to be put on birth control and until then, talk to her and give her a box of condoms.

Later that evening, as her daughter was preparing for a date, the mother
had a talk with her about the situation and handed her a box of condoms.
The girl burst out laughing and reached over to hug her mother, saying,
'Oh Mom! You don't have to worry about that! I'm dating Susan!'
A man went to church one day and afterward he stopped to shake the preacher's hand. He said, 'Preacher, I'll tell you, that was a damned fine sermon. Damned good!'

The preacher said, 'Thank you sir, but I'd rather you didn't use profanity.'

The man said, 'I was so damned impressed with that sermon I put five
thousand dollars in the offering plate!'
The preacher said, 'No shit?'
Brenda and Steve took their six-year-old son to the doctor.  With some hesitation, they explained that although their little angel appeared to be in good health, they were concerned about his rather small penis.

After examining the child, the doctor confidently declared, 'Just feed him pancakes. That should solve the problem.'

The next morning when the boy arrived at breakfast, there was a large stack of warm pancakes in the middle of the table. 
'Gee, Mom,' he exclaimed. 'For me?'  'Just take two,' Brenda replied. 'The rest are for your father.'
One night, an 87-year-old woman came home from Bingo to find her 92-year-old husband in bed with another woman. 

She became violent and ended up pushing him off the balcony of their 20th
floor apartment, killing him instantly. Brought before the court, on the charge of murder, she was asked if she had anything to say in her own defense. 
'Your Honor,' she began coolly, 'I figured that at 92, if he could screw, he could fly.'
A Doctor was addressing a large audience in Tampa . 'The material we put into our stomachs is enough to have killed most of us sitting here, years ago. Red meat is awful. Soft drinks corrode your stomach lining.  Chinese food is loaded with MSG. High fat diets can be disastrous, and none of us realizes the long-term harm caused by the germs in our drinking water. However, there is one thing that is the most dangerous of all and we all have eaten, or will eat it. Can anyone here tell me what food it is that causes the most grief and suffering for years after eating it?'
After several seconds of quiet, a 75-year-old man in the front row raised his hand, and softly said, 'Wedding Cake.'
Bob, a 70-year-old, extremely wealthy widower, shows up at the Country Club with a breathtakingly beautiful and very sexy 25-year-old blonde-haired woman who knocks everyone's socks off with her youthful sex appeal and charm and who hangs over Bob's arm and listens intently to his every word. His buddies at the club are all aghast. At the very first chance, they corner him and ask, 'Bob, how'd you get the trophy girlfriend?' Bob replies, 'Girlfriend? She's my wife!' They are knocked over, but continue to ask. 'So, how'd you persuade her to marry you?'  'I lied about my age', Bob replies. 'What?  Did you tell her you were only 50?'
Bob smiles and says, 'No, I told her I was 90.'
Groups of Americans were traveling by tour bus through Holland ... As they stopped at a cheese farm, a young guide led them through the process of cheese making, explaining that goat's milk was used. She showed the group a lovely hillside where many goats were grazing.. 'These' she explained, 'Are the older goats put out to pasture when they no longer produce.' She then asked, 'What do you do in America with your old goats?'  A spry old gentleman answered, 'They send us on bus tours!

And nothing starts the morning off right better than a catchy tune!!

So her we gooo!

Istanbul (Not Constantinople)

Istanbul was Constantinople
Now it's Istanbul not Constantinople
Been a long time gone Constantinople
Now it's Turkish delight on a moonlit night

Every gal in Constantinople
Lives in Istanbul not Constantinople
So if you've a date in Constantinople
She'll be waiting in Istanbul

Even old New York was once New Amsterdam
Why they changed it I can't say
People just liked it better that way

So take me back to Constantinople
No you can't go back to Constantinople
Been a long time gone Constantinople
Why did Constantinople get the works?
That's nobody's business but the Turks!

I have some news from Shelburne County, Nova Scotia I would like to report:

RCMP discover booby-trapped pot plantation

By BRIAN MEDEL Yarmouth Bureau
Sat, Aug 20 - 4:54 AM

RCMP officers searching for a small outdoor marijuana plantation in Shelburne County Thursday almost walked into some booby traps.

Officers spotted several 15-centimetre spikes amongst some marijuana plants. Wooden bases stabilized the big nails.

"They were flat on the ground with the spikes sticking straight up," said Cpl. Nancy Mason of the Shelburne County street crime unit.

No one was injured.

The plants were found Thursday in the Barrington area after a tip from the public.

"Most of the marijuana eradication we do is all information or intelligence led," said Mason.

The spikes were hard to spot because they were partially hidden by debris.

"It was kind of a swampy, low-lying bush area," said Mason. "They were right within the marijuana crop itself so I’d suspect they’d be intended for pedestrians."

The spikes were not necessarily placed strategically to be walked on by police.

"In my experience, I would also suspect it could have been intended for thieves because that’s not an uncommon practice with marijuana plantations," said Mason.

She said residents should be aware of some of the hazards of outdoor marijuana grows-ops.

"It was a small vacant bush area but located (near) a residential area. Houses were located on either side of it and across the street," said Mason.

"That’s what concerned me the most. I kind of envisioned kids playing . . . or running with their dog or even blueberry picking. It’s almost that time of year."

It’s the first time a booby-trapped pot field has been found in Shelburne County.

"We’re always cautious, though, when we go into the bush looking for marijuana," Mason said.

Last week, officers found and removed a total of 500 marijuana plants from four Shelburne County locations.

RCMP are always looking for information on outdoor grow-ops.

Marijuana is often cultivated late in the year, just before frost is expected.

Residents who suspect a marijuana grow-op in their neighbourhood should call the nearest RCMP detachment or Crime Stoppers, said Mason.

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

Michael it'a damn good thing you ran from the room, cause I was going to kick you ass into next week for saying I was 59!

So I hope you don't mind if I ditto it..

sacBarb said...

Thanks for the comments everyone. I got a big chuckle out of these too.

Tina, How lovely you are moaning in first again.

Michael, How long do you think you can hide from Shirley?? Maybe you should plan to attend all of the cities on the Liz tour. Maybe by the last one, she will have cooled off.

Tinka, I hope you are having a relaxing time on the farm.

Shirley, Iteach and I both know you are only 29.

Zona, Tuesday was my fave too.

J/L, I'll go to Paris with you. Until then, sending (((hugs))) and prayers.
