Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road? - Some Opinions…
--------------------------------

 

Albert Einstein: “Whether the chicken crossed the road or the road crossed the chicken depends upon your frame of reference.”

 

Bill Clinton:  I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What do you mean by chicken? Could you define "chicken" please?

 

Bill Gates:  I have just released eChicken98, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents and balance your checkbook; and Internet Explorer is an inextricable part of eChicken98.

 

Bob Dylan: “How many roads must one chicken cross?”

 

Captain James T. Kirk:  To boldly go where no chicken has gone before.

 

Darth Vader: “Because it could not resist the power of the Dark Side.”

 

Darwin: “It was the logical next step after coming down from the trees.”

 

Einstein:  Did the chicken really cross the road or did the road move beneath the chicken?  It's

all relative.

 

Epicurus: “For fun.”

 

Grandpa:  In my day, we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Someone told us that the

chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.

 

Martin Luther King: “It had a dream.” Also: I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross

roads without having their motives called into question.

 

 Pat Buchanan: He crossed the road to steal a job from a decent, hardworking American.

 

Saddam Hussein: It was an act of rebellion and we were quite justified in dropping 50 tons of

nerve gas on the chicken.

 

Sigmund Freud: The fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.

 

Sir Isaac Newton: “Chickens at rest tend to stay at rest. Chickens in motion tend to cross the road.”

Thomas de Torquemada: “Give me ten minutes with the chicken and I'll find out.”

 Did he cross it with a toad?

 Yes! The chicken crossed the road

 But why it crossed, I've not been told.

Grandma Tells The Story Of Her Bumper Sticker
************************************

 

This is the way she tells it:

 

The other day I went to the local religious bookstore where I saw a "Honk if you really love Jesus" bumper sticker. I bought it and put it on the back bumper of my car and I'm really glad I did.

 

What an uplifting experience followed. I stopped at the light of a busy intersection, and was lost in thought about the Lord and didn't notice that the light had changed. That bumper sticker really worked! I found lots of people who love Jesus.

 

Why, the guy behind me started to honk like crazy. He must really love the Lord because pretty soon he leaned out his window and yelled "Jesus Christ!" as loud as he could. Why, it was like a football game with him shouting, "Go, Jesus Christ, Go!"

 

Everyone else started honking too, so I leaned out my window and waved and smiled to all those loving people.

 

There must have been a guy from Florida back there because I could hear him yelling something about a sunny beach, and I saw him waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air. I figured he must have been trying to tell me that he was one with Christ or was just pointing to the heavens. In any event, praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!

I'm a 6' tall, 200 lb black belt from Poland. The guy sitting next to me is 6'2", weighs 225 and he's a Polish rugby player. The fella to your right is 6'5" pushing 300 and he's a Polish wrestler. Think about it, Mister. You still wanna tell that joke?"

The clerk looks at him and says, "Are you Polish?"

 

The guy says, "Well, yes I am, but, I think you must be very prejudiced against Polish people to ask. If I had asked for Italian sausage would you ask me if I was Italian??? Or if I had asked for German sausage, would you ask me if I was German??? Or if I wanted a taco would you ask if I was Mexican???"

 

The clerk says, "Well, no."

 

The guys says, "WELL, why do you ask me if I'm

Polish just because I ask for Polish sausage????"

 

The clerk says, "Because this is a hardware store."

The Doctor's Daiquiri
--------------------------------

 

A doctor made it his regular habit to stop off at a bar for a hazelnut daiquiri on his way home. The bartender knew of his habit, and would always have the drink waiting at precisely 5:03 p.m. One afternoon, as the end of the workday approached, the bartender was dismayed to find that he was out of hazelnut extract. Thinking quickly, he threw together a daiquiri made with hickory nuts and set it on the bar. The doctor came in at his regular time, took one sip of the drink and exclaimed, "This isn't a hazelnut daiquiri!  What the hell kind of daiquiri is it?" The bartender replied, "It's a hickory daiquiri, Doc."

--------------------------------

 

70 year old George went for his annual physical. All of his tests came back with great results.

 

Dr. Smith said, "George, everything looks great physically and you appear to be doing fine mentally and  emotionally as well. You must be at peace with yourself and have a good relationship with God!" George replied, "Well God and I are pretty tight. We are so close that when I wake up in the middle of the night, I walk to the bathroom, and POOF the light goes on and when I finish and then POOF the light goes off.” “Wow,” commented Dr. Smith, “That's incredible!!” A little later Dr. Smith called George's wife. “Thelma,” he said, "George is just fine. Physically he's great but I had to call because I'm in awe of his relationship with God. Is it true that when he gets up during the night and goes to the bathroom, POOF the light goes on and then when he finishes, POOF the light goes off?" Thelma replied, "Oh no!  he's been peeing in the fridge again"

How to Write Good
--------------------------------        

 

My several years in the word game have learnt me several rules:

 

1. Avoid alliteration. Always.

 

2. Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.

 

3. Avoid clichés like the plague. (They're old hat.)

 

4. Employ the vernacular.

 

5. Eschew ampersands & abbreviations, etc.

 

6. Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are unnecessary.

 

7. It is wrong to ever split an infinitive.

 

8. Contractions aren't necessary.

 

9. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.

 

10. One should never generalize.

 

11. Eliminate quotations. As Ralph Waldo Emerson once said:

    "I hate quotations. Tell me what you know."

 

12. Comparisons are as bad as clichés.

 

13. Don't be redundant; don't more use words than necessary; it's repetitive and highly superfluous.

 

14. Profanity sucks.

 

15. Be more or less specific.

 

16. Understatement is always best.

 

17. Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.

 

18. One-word sentences? Eliminate.

 

19. Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.

 

20. The passive voice is to be avoided.

 

21. Go around the barn at high noon to avoid colloquialisms.

 

22. Even if a mixed metaphor sings, it should be derailed.

 

23. Who needs rhetorical questions?

Building a Resume
--------------------------------

 

Below are the typical areas of a resume and my priceless secrets for dealing with them.  These tips will help crush the competition, get you in the door and put you behind a desk making 50 big ones, plus bonuses.

 

THE NAME:  Use the name to your advantage.  Spice it up a little bit.  Steve Smith goes nowhere fast.  But Sir Stephen Smith -- now that might turn a few heads.  Nicknames also help.  Mark "Keyboards" O'Malley is good.  Mark "Keg sucker" O'Malley is bad.

 

THE ADDRESS:  Forget your real address.  Make a statement instead!  Saying you're from the Bronx suggests you're tough as nails.  Anyplace in Japan implies you believe in an 18-hour-a-day work ethic!

 

THE PHONE NUMBER:  Skip it.  What are the odds they'll call -- 1,000 to 1.  If they do, they'll probably just catch your roommate somewhere in the middle of his second six-pack.  My advice is never put your phone number on a resume unless you want to try some interesting 900 number which might wake up a recruiter or two.

 

THE AMBITION STATEMENT:  Forget the ambition statement.  You know what I mean: "Seeking a challenging IS position using state-of-the-art technology in a high-growth, future-oriented corporation that is doing neat things for the environment."  A better idea is to tell them what you're NOT seeking.  "Not seeking a job where I'm paying my dues for eight years, maintaining ancient

Cobol code that crashes every other night.  Not slaving for some horrible boss and groveling in the smallest cubicle in the world until I finally claw my way into a lower management position, only to have the company lay off 40% of its work force so that I wind up in some non-critical, low-paying, dead-end, back-office position."

 

EDUCATION:  Send in an application to MIT, then truthfully state:  "Current doctoral candidate, Nuclear Computer Simulation Modeling Program, MIT."

 

EXPERIENCE:  Even fresh out of school, you've got to have experience.  But  don't mention that you've invested in your own relational database or coded an object-oriented commodity trading system.... Everybody's done that stuff.  I'm talking about hands-on experience:  high-level management, microchip design, hostile takeovers, etc.  So if you're a little light in the experience area, don't tell lies.  Instead, simply try creative wording of the experience you do have.  For example, if you worked as a cashier at Food Lion, make it, "Monitored and troubleshot retail point-of-sale bar-code inventory scanning system."  Also, "Conducted usability testing for graphical user interface" sounds a lot better than "played too much Nintendo."  But don't try "Evaluated remote-accessed continuous-availability multimedia environment." Most employers can pick that one off as watching too much MTV.

 

THE CLOSE:  "References furnished upon request?"  What kind of power-close is that? Close with impact. Close with a line they'll remember, like "Please, please give me a job.  And by the way, I know where you live."

Proverb simplification exercise
--------------------------------        

 

Test your clear-writing skill. Each of the paragraphs below is a famous proverb that has been written with a high fog factor. It contains superfluous words and needs to be simplified with language that is clearer and more to the point. Answers appear immediately below.

 

1.       An ignoramus and his/her lucre are readily disjoined.

 

2.       In the absence of the feline race, certain small rodents will give themselves up to various pleasurable pastimes.

 

3.       Impetuous celebrity engenders purposeless spoilage.

 

4.       Illegal transgression has no remuneration for its perpetrators.

 

5.       Provide the privilege of affranchisement, or I will feel that life is not worth living.

 

6.       A condition characterized by tardiness is more desirable than one that is systematically marked by eternal absenteeism.

 

7.       A mineral matter of various composition when engaged in a periodical revolution exhibits no tendency to accumulate any of the cryptogamic plants of class Cusci.

 

8.       The pursuit and capture of winged air-breathing anthropoids is more easily effected when a sweet, as opposed to a sour, substance is for purposes of beguilement, made use of. For example; the viscid fluid derived from the saccharine section of a plant and produced by hymenopterous insects of the super family apoidea has proved more successful in the endeavor than has dilute and impure acetic acid.

 

9.       Seeking a suitable place for the purpose of courting a state of dormant quiescence during the first part of a crepuscular period and forsaking said suitable place during the first part of the matinal period results in myriad benefits to homo sapiens among which benefits may be noted a substantial increase in body soundness, monies and sagacity.

 

10.    The positive appeal of a visual object depends not so much upon the objective standards against which said object is measured, but upon the image recorded by the organ of vision of that individual who observes said object.

 

11.    From deliberative investigation it has come to our attention that the aviatorial member of the phylum chordata which is anticipatory will invariably apprehend the member of slender soft-bodied bilateral invertebrates.

 

12.    Experience has demonstrated that the total aggregate or corporeal substances that may emanate transplendency, do not of necessity represent an embodiment of precious metallic element ochre.

 

13.    Meddlesome inquisitiveness on the part of that domesticated carnivorous member of the zoological family, feline, has brought about the unfortunate bereaving of its vilifying forces.

 

14.    A plenitude of gourmand satiating scullions tend to obviate, obstruct, undermine, decompose and otherwise boggle the mulligatawny.

 

15.    A warm-blooded vertebrate of the class avis grasped in the terminal prehensile portion of the upper limb of the human body is equal in value to one plus one of the aforementioned vertebrates in a scrub.

BEFORE COMPUTERS...
************************************

   

An application was for employment,

A program was a TV show,

A cursor used profanity,

A keyboard was a piano!

 

Memory was something that you lost with age,

A CD was a bank account,

And a floppy disk was something

Terribly wrong in your back.

 

Compress was something you did to garbage,

Not something you did to a file.

And if you unzipped anything in public,

You'd be in jail for awhile!

 

Log on was adding wood to a fire,

Hard drive was a long trip on the road.

A mouse pad was where a mouse lived,

And a backup happened to your commode!

 

Cut - you did with a pocket knife,

Paste you did with glue.

A web was a spider's home,

And a virus was the flu!

 

I guess I'll stick to my pad and paper,

And the memory in my head.

I hear nobody's been killed in a computer crash,

But when it happens, they wish they were dead!

Communications in court
********************

 

A judge was interviewing a woman regarding her pending divorce, and asked, "What are the grounds for your divorce?" She replied, "About four acres and a nice little home in the middle of the property with a stream running by." "No," he said, "I mean what is the foundation of this case?" "It is made of concrete, brick and mortar," she responded. "I mean," he continued, "What are your relations like?" "I have an aunt and uncle living here in town, and so do my husband's parents." He said, "Do you have a real grudge?" "No," she replied, "We have a two-car carport and have never really needed one." "Please," he tried again, "is there any infidelity in your marriage?" "Yes, both my son and daughter have stereo sets. We don't necessarily like the music, but the answer to your questions is yes." "Ma'am, does your husband ever beat you up?" "Yes," she responded, "about twice a week he gets up earlier than I do." Finally, in frustration, the judge asked, "Lady, why do you want a divorce?" "Oh, I don't want a divorce," she replied. "I've never wanted a divorce. My husband does. He said he can't communicate with me."

The Angel on Your Christmas Tree

 

One year Santa was running late in getting his toys ready for Christmas Eve.  To make things worse, he hadn’t yet gotten a Christmas tree for his workshop.  So he asked a little angel to please go out into the forest and get a Christmas tree and hurry back, so she could help Santa get the toys ready for Christmas Eve.  The little angel went out into the forest looking for a tree.  The first tree she found was too small, the next too large, the next bent and so on.  She wanted to find the perfect tree for Santa.  It took her a long time, but at last she found the perfect tree and started dragging it back to Santa’s workshop.  She didn’t know it, but by the time she got back Santa was furious, because she was so late in getting back.  She came in with the tree and asked Santa, “Look at this beautiful Christmas tree, where would you like for me to stick it?”  Santa told her where to stick it, and that’s the story of why little angels always “sit” on the top of a Christmas tree.

Blonde jokes:  Caution: If You Are Offended By Blonde Jokes, Don’t Read These.
--------------------------------

A married couple were asleep when the phone rang at 2 in the morning. The wife (undoubtedly blonde), picked up the phone, listened a moment and said, "How should I know, that's 200 miles from here!" and hung up. The husband said, "Who was that?" The wife said, "I don’t know, some woman wanting to know "if the coast is clear."

 

Two blondes are walking down the street. One notices a compact on the sidewalk and leans down to pick it up. She opens it, looks in the mirror and says, "Hmm, this person looks familiar." The second blonde says, "Here, let me see!" So the first blonde hands her the compact. The second one looks in the mirror and says, "You dummy, it's me!"

 

A blonde suspects her boyfriend of cheating on her, so she goes out and buys a gun. She goes to his apartment unexpectedly and when she opens the door she finds him in the arms of a redhead. Well, the blonde is really angry. She opens her purse to take out the gun, and as she does so, she is overcome with grief. She takes the gun and puts it to her head. The boyfriend yells, "No, honey, don't do it." The blonde replies, "Shut up, you're next!"

 

A blonde was bragging about her knowledge of state capitals. She proudly says, "Go ahead, and ask me, I know all of them." A friend says, "OK, what's the capital of Wisconsin?" The blonde replies, "Oh, that's easy: W."

 

What did the blonde say to her doctor when he told her she was pregnant? "Is it mine?"

 

  A Blonde was down on her luck. In order to raise some money, she decided to kidnap a kid for ransom. She went to the playground, grabbed a kid, took him behind a tree, and told him, "I've kidnapped you."

 

She then wrote a note saying, "I've kidnapped your kid. Tomorrow morning, put $10,000 in an envelope and have your kid deliver it to me at the school playground. Signed, A Blonde". The Blonde then sent the kid home to show the note to his parents.

 

The next morning the kid showed up with the $10,000 in the envelope!

There was a note attached that said, "How could you do this to a fellow blonde.

 

A blonde went to her mailbox several times before it was even time for the mailman to make his rounds.

A neighbor noticed her repeated trips to the curb and asked if she was waiting for a special delivery.

Her reply: "My computer keeps telling me I have mail".

 

Two blondes were working on a house. The one who was nailing down siding, would reach into her nail pouch, pull out a nail and either toss it over her shoulder or nail it in.

 

The other blonde, figuring this was worth looking into, asked, "Why are you throwing those nails away?"

 

The first blonde explained, "If I pull a nail out of my pouch and it's pointed TOWARD me I throw it away 'cause it's defective. If it's pointed toward the HOUSE, then I nail it in!"  

 

The second blonde got completely pissed off and yelled, "You MORON!!! The  nails pointed toward you aren't defective! They're for the OTHER side of the  house!!"

 

One day, a blonde maid was driving to California. On the way, she saw a sign that said, "Clean Restrooms Ahead." By the time she finally reached the coast, she had scrubbed and polished 68 of them.

-----------------------  
The Genie
-----------------------

A man was walking along a California beach and stumbled across an old lamp.  He picked it up and rubbed it and out popped a genie.

 

The genie said "OK, OK.  You released me from the lamp, blah, blah, blah. This is the fourth time this month and I'm getting a little sick of these wishes so you can forget about three.  You only get one wish!"

 

The man sat and thought about it for a while and said, "I've always wanted to go to Hawaii but I'm scared to fly and I get very seasick.   Could you build me a bridge to Hawaii so I can drive over there to visit?"

 

The genie laughed and said, "That's impossible.  Think of the logistics of that!  It would have to be over a thousand miles long, with tens of thousands of supports, each over a mile long.  Think of just how much concrete and steel that would require!!  No, I can't do it, think of another wish."

 

The man said OK and tried to think of a really good wish.

 

Finally, he said,  " I've never been able to please a woman—no matter how much I do for them, it's never enough.  I wish that I could truly understand women... know what they really want... and know how to make them truly happy...."

 

The genie's reply: "Do you want that bridge to be two lanes or four?

The Blind Man
***************************************  

 

An attractive nun, who often had handicapped visitors to her home, had just moved into a new home. Just as she stepped out of the shower, she heard the doorbell ring. So, she called out, "Who is it?"

 

The man at the door replied, "It’s the blind man."

 

The nun thought to herself, well, if he is blind, he won't be able to see me this way, so she called back, "Okay, come on in."

 

In walked a repairman who, much aghast, said, "Gosh, lady, where do you want me to hang these blinds?"

Luck Of The Irish
*************************

  Two men were sitting next to each other at a bar. After a while, one guy looks at the other and says, "I can't help but think, from listening to you, that you're from Ireland.

The other guy responds proudly, "Yes, that I am!"

The first guy says, "So am I! And where about from Ireland might you be?"

The other guy answers, "I'm from Dublin, I am."

The first guy responds, "Sure and begora, and so am I! And what street did you live on in Dublin?"

The other guy says, "A lovely little area it was, I lived on McCleary Street in the old central part of town."

The first guy says, "Faith and begora it's a small world, so did I!

And to what school would you have been going?"

The other guy answers, "Well now, I went to St. Mary's of course."

The first guy gets really excited, and says, "And so did I. Tell me, what year did you graduate?"

The other guy answers, "Well, now, I graduated in 1964."

The first guy exclaims, "The Good Lord must be smiling down upon us! I can hardly believe our good luck at winding up in the same bar on this very night. Can you believe it, I graduated from St. Mary's in 1964 my own self."

About this time, another guy walks into the bar, sits down, and orders a beer.

The bartender walks over shaking his head and mutters, "It's going to be a long night tonight, the Murphy twins are drunk again."

The Frog Loan
**** **** **** *** ***** **** **** **** ****

 

A frog goes into a bank and approaches the teller. He can see from her nameplate that the teller's name is Patricia Whack. So he says, "Ms.Whack, I'd like to get a loan to buy a boat and go on a long vacation." Patti looks at the frog in disbelief and asks how much he wants to borrow. The frog says, $360,000." She asks his name and the frog says that his name

is Kermit Jagger, his dad is Mick Jagger, and that it's OK, he knows the bank manager. Patti explains that $360,000 is a substantial amount of money and that he will need to secure some collateral against the loan. She asks if he has anything

he can use as collateral. The frog says, "Sure. I have this, ..."

and produces a tiny pink porcelain elephant, about half an inch tall. Bright pink and perfectly formed. Very confused, Patti explains that she'll have to consult with the manager & disappears into a back office. She finds the manager and says: "There's a frog called Kermit Jagger out there who claims to know you and wants to borrow $360,000. And he wants to use this as collateral." She holds up the tiny pink elephant and says, "I mean what the heck is this?"

The bank manager looks back at her and says...

 " .....It's a knick knack, Patti Whack. Give the frog a loan.

 His old man's a Rolling Stone..."

 There are many stories related to the sinking of the "Titanic." Some have just come to light due to the success of the recent movie. For example, most people don't know that back in 1912

 Hellmann's mayonnaise was manufactured in England. The "Titanic" was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after New York City.

 

 The Mexican people were eagerly awaiting delivery and were disconsolate at the loss. So much so that they declared a National day of mourning, which they still, observe today. It is known, of course, as... Sinko de Mayo.

Walking faster he looks back, and makes out the image of an upright coffin banging its way down the middle of the street towards him ... BUMP... ...BUMP... ...BUMP...

Terrified, the man begins to run towards his home. He runs up to his door, fumbles with his keys, opens the door, rushes in, slams and locks the door behind him.

However, the coffin crashes through his door.

The man screams and reaches for something, anything ... but all he can find is a bottle of cough syrup!

Desperate, he throws the cough syrup at the coffin ...

the coffin stops.

REASONS WHY I HAVE QUIT VARIOUS JOBS


My first job was working in an orange juice factory, but I got canned because I couldn't concentrate.

 

Then I worked in the woods as a lumberjack, but I just couldn't hack it, so they gave me the axe.

 

After that I tried to be a tailor, but I just wasn't suited for it; mainly because it was a so-so job.

 

Next I tried working in a muffler factory but that was exhausting.

 

For a while I was a spokesman for a bicycle company, but I quit because the business kept going around in cycles.

 

I tried being a barber, but I just couldn't cut it.

 

Then I tried to be a chef. I figured it would add a little spice to my life but I just didn't have the thyme.

 

I also attempted to be a deli worker, but any way I sliced it, I couldn't cut the mustard.

 

My best job was being a musician, but eventually I found I wasn't noteworthy.

 

I studied a long time to become a doctor, but I didn't have any patients.

 

I became a professional fisherman, but discovered that I couldn't live on my net income.

 

I worked for a while in a donut shop. I enjoyed making the dough, but I got tired of the hole business.

 

I thought about becoming a witch, so I tried that for a spell.

 

I managed to get a good job working for a pool maintenance company, but the work was just too draining.

 

I worked for a while as an elevator operator, but there were too many ups and downs in the business.

 

I got a job at a zoo feeding giraffes but I was fired because I wasn't up to it.

 

So then I got a job at a health spa, but they said I wasn't fit for the job.

 

After many years of trying to find steady work I finally got a job as a historian, until I realized there was no future in it.

 

My last job was working at Starbucks, but I had to quit because it was always the same old grind.

The Whiskey speech

************************* 

In 1952 Noah S. "Soggy" Sweat, Jr, was running for public office and was asked for his stand on the subject of whiskey.  The following is his reply:

My dear friends,

I had not intended to discuss this controversial subject at this particular time. However, I want you to know that I do not shun controversy. On the contrary, I will take a stand on any issue at any time, regardless of how fraught with controversy it might be. You have asked me how I feel about whiskey. All right, here is how I feel about whiskey.

If  by whiskey, you mean the devil's brew, the poison scourge, the bloody monster that defiles innocence, dethrones reason, destroys the home, creates misery and poverty, yea, literally takes the bread from the mouths of little children; if you mean that evil drink that topples Christian men and women from the pinnacles of righteous and gracious living into the bottomless pits of degradation, shame, despair, helplessness, and hopelessness, then, my friend, I am opposed to it with every fiber of my being.

However, if by whiskey, you mean the oil of conversation, the philosophic wine, the elixir of life, the ale that is consumed when good fellows get together, that puts a song in their hearts and the warm glow of contentment in their eyes; if by whiskey you mean Christmas cheer, the stimulating sip that puts a little spring in the step of an elderly gentleman on a frosty morning; if you mean that drink that enables man to magnify his joy, and to forget life's great tragedies and heartbreaks and sorrow; if you mean that drink the sale of which pours into our treasuries untold millions of dollars each year, that provides tender care for our little crippled children, our blind, our deaf, our dumb, our pitifully aged and infirm, to build the finest highways, hospitals, universities, and community colleges in this nation, then my friend, I am absolutely, unequivocally in favor of it. That, fellow citizens, is my position on whiskey, and as always, I refuse to be compromised on matters of principle.
