Shaggy Christmas Down Under

This merry little gem was submitted to us by Dave Wallace.

Lara Bingle (an Australian fashion model) invited Michael Clarke (captain of the Australian cricket team, and Lara’s former fiance) around for Christmas dinner a few short years ago. She didn’t claim to be a good cook, but wanted to serve a home-made meal for him. Actually, she admits to being a lousy cook.

Michael found a very dense object on his plate which was a kind of radioactive green. … Read the rest...

The Human Stain

A recent offering from Stan Kegel and Richard Lederer’s book.

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers were having dinner at an expensive New York restaurant. It was the place to be seen and both had dressed for the occasion. Ginger was resplendent in a ball gown and diamond tiara while Fred wore his smartest morning suit. But the evening was marred when the waiter bringing their desserts tripped and covered Fred from head to toe in treacle sponge.

“I’m terribly sorry,” … Read the rest...

Modern Classic Lies

From AAA Jokes, this was posted on the groaners listserv.

In addition to the old lines about “The check is in the mail” and “Certainly, I’ll respect you in the morning,” modern events have made for modern lies to take their place among the classics. Following are some of the “new” classics:

    – I never inhaled.

    – I never watch television except PBS.

    – I will be devoting my life to finding the real killer of my wife Nicole and

Elvis — In Lieu of Lunch

This was posted by Conrad Macina to the daily-humor group on yahoogroups.

My mother gave my sister and me ten dollars to buy lunch for ourselves at the diner down the street. On our way there we passed a man selling puppies. I asked, “How much for a puppy?”

“Ten dollars,” he answered.

Unable to resist, I coaxed my sister into giving up her lunch money and bought a puppy. I named it Elvis, and we went home.

My sister, … Read the rest...

Lowely Shaggy Dog

Irregular Webcomic! is by David Morgan-Mar. Occasionally, he includes wonderful puns. This was originally published on January 20, 2004.

He was just a giga-Lowe.

Shaggy Beatles II

By Brian P. Combs.

Another that’s certainly been done, and might have variants already in Tarzan’s Tripes, but this one drug me out of bed until I got it written down…

In addition to being an actor and comedian, Dom DeLuise was an accomplished chef. He wrote several books on cooking and often performed cooking segments when on talk shows.

He was also good friends with well-known Cajun chef Paul Prudhomme. In fact, Prudhomme even shared his top secret cream … Read the rest...

Glorious ‘Highlights’ of the English Language…

These wonderful insults are from an era before the English language got boiled down to 4-letter words. Thanks to Tom Vickery for this listing. Bill Pardue has also sent versions of this collection.

The famous exchange between Churchill & Lady Astor: She said, “If you were my husband I’d give you poison.”

He said, “If you were my wife, I’d drink it.”

A member of Parliament to Disraeli: “Sir, you will either die on the gallows, or of some unspeakable … Read the rest...

How To Make Yourself Feel Smarter (Read These)

Alice Collins from LA sent this. (Now, as for me, I would be likely to cut a little (a lot of) slack for anything Mariah Carey or Brooke Shields might say.)

Question: If you could live forever, would you and why?

Answer: “I would not live forever, because we should not live forever, because if we were supposed to live forever, then we would live forever, but we cannot live forever, which is why I would not live forever,”
–Miss … Read the rest...

Subject: Why did the chicken cross the road?

This updated political statement was sent by Bro Tom Vickery.

The chicken crossed the road because it was time for a CHANGE! The chicken wanted CHANGE!

My friends, that chicken crossed the road because he recognized the need to engage in cooperation and dialogue with all the chickens on the other side of the road.

When I was First Lady, I personally helped that little chicken to cross the road. This experience makes me uniquely … Read the rest...

The Movie Epic

This version was posted on the ShaggyDog listserv. It features Steven Spielberg, but it is much older than that. I first heard it in high school about a Cecil B. DeMille epic movie — with Charlton Heston, of course.

Steven Spielberg was filming his latest movie in the heart of the Amazon rain forest.

The costs involved in transporting tons of movie making equipment into the heart of the jungle were enormous. He literally had a cast of thousands to … Read the rest...

For the Right Price

Gary Hallock posted this timely quip on P.U.N.Y.

After serving 35 years on TV’s popular game show, The Price is Right, the host is finally going to retire. I imagine he’ll now have more time to concentrate on his sideline of neutering dogs. That’s right, he’ll still Bob Barkers.… Read the rest...

To The Memory of Johnny Carson

Ms. Scarlett forwarded these words of wisdom.

“What Democracy Means to Me” by Johnny Carson

To me, democracy means placing trust in the little guy, giving the fruits of nationhood to those who built the nation.

Democracy means anyone can grow up to be president, and anyone who doesn’t grow up can be vice-president.

Democracy is people of all races, colors, and creeds united by a single dream: to get rich and move to the suburbs away from people of

Thoughts on Bow Hunting

From Lowrie who knew I wouldn’t be able to resist using it. It reminds me of the ancient question about, “What is the last thing that goes through a bug’s mind when it hits the windshield?”*

Ted Nugent, a heavy metal guitar legend and devoted (bow) hunter, was being interviewed by a French journalist. Eventually, the conversation turned to his love of outdoor pursuits. The journalist asked, “What do you think the last thought is in the head of a … Read the rest...

Julia Child Tale

Me? I make ’em up. To Jim Ryan they always happen. And he has a good memory.

Quite some time back, it was in the sixties, I was watching one of Julia Child’s cooking shows on television. One of the items to be made that day was Swedish dill bread. At the appropriate point in the program Julia placed her hands into the large bowl and uttered in that voice Julia was famous for….

A Samuel L. Jackson Movie

By Brian Combs. He is coming up with more of these things. I guess the chip doesn’t fall far from the longhorn (or some such appropriately perverted cliche).

You’ve probably heard about the new Samuel L. Jackson scary airplane movie. You know, the one that’s been getting all the hype on the internet and on TV.

Well, it really is a low budget feature. In fact, the vast majority of the actors were working for scale.… Read the rest...


By Alan B. Combs, accompaied by Chris Caillouet and Bob Dvorak.

It’s true. I have strange friends. Some time ago I told you about a friend that collected statues of various people named William — the Bill-collector. I have another friend, one that instead of statues, collects marble busts of famous people. He keeps them on the shelves in his office.

The actor Richard Boone, of “Have Gun, Will Travel” fame is one of them. Another is of President Nixon. … Read the rest...

The French and Lance Armstrong

Tom Vickery sent this item, one quite representative of anti-French invective going around the internet these days.

PARIS, France — Lance Armstrong’s record setting seventh Tour de France victory, along with his entire Tour de France legacy, may be tarnished by what could turn out to be one of the greatest sports scandals of all time. Armstrong is being quizzed by French police after three banned substances were found in his South of France hotel room while on vacation after … Read the rest...

The Bad Tattoo

I have known this story for over ten years. I have been waiting for a version to come along, but none has. Thus, this my re- creation.

A young lady who was much in love with Elvis and his memory finally decided she just had to acquire a tattoo of the singer on an intimate part of her anatomy, the inner thigh to be exact. She went to a local tattoo parlor to check it out.

“Can you do a … Read the rest...

Look On My Works…

Sue Lemcke sent this to us. Thanks, Sue.

King Ozymandias of Assyria was running low on cash after years of war with the Hittites. His last great possession was the Star of the Euphrates, the most valuable diamond in the ancient world. Desperate, he went to Crosus, the pawnbroker, to get a loan.

Crosus said, “I’ll give you 100,000 dinars for it.”

“But I paid a million dinars for it,” the King protested. Don’t you know who I am? I … Read the rest...

What I’ve learned — By Satan

Shayne Gad passed this along to us. Thank you, Sir. Esquire magazine runs a segment in every issue called “What I’ve Learned,” where they run quotes and snippets from some famous person.In the January 2004 issue they ran 15 of them, then ended the magazine with one more.

What I’ve learned — By Satan

I prefer Mephistopheles. God calls me Satan.

These days, a lot of people overestimate what they can get for their souls. Frankly, it’s a buyer’s market.… Read the rest...
