Joke of The Day

Adjusting to marriage sometimes poses some unexpected problems. But  when I came upon a friend of mine in a bar the night after his wedding, I had ask exactly what he was doing there instead of with his new bride.
  "Well, you see, this morning when I got up," he said, "I was barely awake from a wonderful night of love-making. More out of habit than anything else, I put a fifty dollar bill on the dresser."
  I told him not to worry about it, that his new wife probably wouldn't even think anything of it; that he could always say he left her some spending money.
  "No no !" he half wailed/half said, "You don't understand. She was half asleep too and gave me $30 change."

Quote of The Day

"Without question, the greatest invention in the history of mankind is beer.Oh, I grant you that the wheel was also a fine invention, but the wheel does not go nearly as well with pizza."
- David "Dave" Barry (July 3rd, 1947), a Pulitzer Prize-winning American author and columnist

"Not all chemicals are bad. Without chemicals such as hydrogen and oxygen, for example, there would be no way to make water, a vital ingredient in beer."
- Dave Barry


"When I heated my home with oil, I used an average of 800 gallons a year. I have found that I can keep comfortably warm for an entire winter with slightly over half that quantity of beer."
 -Dave Barry


 "The letters in 'Brace Beemer' can be arranged to spell 'Embrace Beer.'"
-Dave Barry, referring to the actor who played the Lone Ranger on radio
