Parvinder and Habib are pandhandlers...


They panhandle in different areas of New York.

Habib panhandles just as long as Parvinder but only collects 2

to 3 dollars every day.

Parvinder brings home a suitcase FULL of $10 bills, drives a

Mercedes, lives in a mortgage-free house and has a lot of money to spend.


Habib says to Parvinder "I work just as long and hard as you do

but how do you bring home a suitcase full of $10 bills every day?".

Parvinder says, .... "Look at your sign, what does it say"?

Habib's sign reads 'I have no work, a wife and 6 kids to


Parvinder says " No wonder you only get $2-3 dollars"

Habib says... "So what does your sign say"?

Parvinder shows Habib his sign......

It reads, "I only need another $10 to move back to Pakistan".

a man is sitting a the bar when he orders his drink from a particularly good lookin' barmaid, as she bends over to get said drink he whispers "tickle your arse with a feather" to which the barmaid naturally reply's "what did you just say?!"


now the man at the bar was cunning and replied "why i said, particularly nasty weather" at which point he was off the hook. a drunk at the end of the bar observed all of this and thought he'd try it himself, so when he ordered another drink and the barmaid bent over he shouted out "stick a feather up your bum!" when the barmaid, shocked, asked him what he just said he replied with "its pissing down out there"

A little boy got on the bus, sat next to a man reading a book, and noticed

he had his collar on backwards.


The little boy asked why he wore his collar that way.


The man, who was a priest, said, ' I am a Father.'


The little boy replied, 'My Daddy doesn't wear his collar like that.'


The priest looked up from his book and answered 'I am the Father of many.'


The boy said, 'My Dad has 4 boys, 4 girls and two grandchildren and he

doesn't wear his collar that way.'


The priest, getting impatient, said, 'I am the Father of hundreds,' and went

back to reading his book.


The little boy sat quietly thinking for a while, then leaned over and said,


'Maybe you should wear your pants backwards instead of your collar.'

Bathtub Test



It doesn't hurt to take a hard look at yourself from time to time, and this

should help get you started. During a visit to the mental asylum, a visitor

asked the Director what the criterion was which defined whether or not

a patient should be institutionalized.


"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon,

a teacup and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the



"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the bucket

because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."


"No." said the Director, "A normal person would pull the plug. Do you want

a bed near the window?"

A Canadian couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a particularly

icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where they spent their

honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to

coordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left Calgary and flew to

Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down the following day. The

husband checked into the hotel.




There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an email to his

wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her email address, and

without realizing his error, sent the email to a wrong person!!




Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her

husband's funeral. He was a minister who was called home to glory following

a heart attack. The widow decided to check her email expecting messages from

relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she screamed and

fainted. The widow's son rushed into the room, found his mother on the

floor, and saw the computer screen which read:




To: My Loving Wife


Subject: I've Arrived


Date: January 17, 2008




I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and

you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones. I've just arrived and

have been checked in. I've seen that everything has been prepared for your

arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then!!!! Hope your

journey is as uneventful as mine was. P. S. Sure is freaking hot down

Daddy's Rules for Dating


Rule One:

If you pull into my driveway and honk you'd better be delivering a package,

because you're sure not picking anything up.


Rule Two:

You do not touch my daughter in front of me. You may glance at her, so long

as you do not peer at anything below her neck. If you cannot keep your eyes

or hands off of my daughter's body, I will remove them..


Rule Three:

I am aware that it is considered fashionable for boys of your age to wear

their trousers so loosely that they appear to be falling off their hips.

Please don't take this as an insult, but you and all of your friends are

complete idiots. Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue,

so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear

showing and your pants ten sizes too big, and I will not object. However, in

order to ensure that your clothes do not, in fact come off during the course

of your date with my daughter, I will take my electric nail gun and fasten

your trousers securely in place to your waist.


Rule Four:

I'm sure you've been told that in today's world, sex without utilizing a

'Barrier method' of some kind can kill you. Let me elaborate, when it comes

to sex, I am the barrier, and I will kill you.


Rule Five:

It is usually understood that in order for us to get to know each other, we

should talk about sports, politics, and other issues of the day. Please do

not do this. The only information I require from you is an indication of

when you expect to have my daughter safely back at my house, and the only

word I need from you on this subject is: 'early.'


Rule Six:

I have no doubt you are a popular fellow, with many opportunities to date

other girls. This is fine with me as long as it is okay with my daughter.

Otherwise, once you have gone out with my little girl, you will continue to

date no one but her until she is finished with you. If you make her cry, I

will make you cry.


Rule Seven:

As you stand in my front hallway, waiting for my daughter to appear, and

more than an hour goes by, do not sigh and fidget. If you want to be on time

for the movie, you should not be dating. My daughter is putting on her

makeup, a process than can take longer than painting the Golden Gate Bridge

. Instead of just standing there, why don't you do something useful, like

changing the oil in my car?


Rule Eight:

The following places are not appropriate for a date with my daughter: Places

where there are beds, sofas, or anything softer than a wooden stool. Places

where there is darkness. Places where there is dancing, holding hands, or

happiness. Places where the ambient temperature is warm enough to induce my

daughter to wear shorts, tank tops, midriff T-shirts, or anything other than

overalls, a sweater, and a goose down parka - zipped up to her throat.

Movies with a strong romantic or sexual themes are to be avoided; movies

which feature chain saws are okay. Hockey games are okay. Old folks homes

are better.


Rule Nine:

Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a potbellied, balding, middle-aged,

dimwitted has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the

all-knowing, merciless god of your universe. If I ask you where you are

going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth, the whole

truth and nothing but the truth. I have a shotgun, a shovel, and five acres

behind the house. Do not trifle with me.


Rule Ten:

Be afraid. Be very afraid. It takes very little for me to mistake the sound

of your car in the driveway for a chopper coming in over a rice paddy near

Hanoi . When my Agent Orange starts acting up, the voices in my head

frequently tell me to clean the guns as I wait for you to bring my daughter

home. As soon as you pull into the driveway you should exit the car with

both hands in plain sight. Speak the perimeter password, announce in a clear

voice that you have brought my daughter home safely and early, then return

to your car - there is no need for you to come inside. The camouflaged face

at the window is mine.

I went to the butchers and he wanted to bet me that I couldn't reach some sides of beef hung up in the window.

I declined as the steaks were too high.

A young woman goes to the doctors and complains that no matter how hard she tries she cannot get a boyfriend so she must have something wrong with her and insists that she see the first available medic.

She is told that Dr. Lao is the wisest doctor in the practise and she is shown into a room and there sat behind a desk is a little Chinese doctor.

She takes a seat and explains that even though she is rich, wealthy and extremely ellegible she can't get a boyfriend.

The doctor stands up and takes a good look at her and finally says

"Okay please if you will take all your clothes off".

The woman looks confused but does as the little Chinese guy asks.

"Now if you would be so kind could you get on all fours and crawl towards the far wall".

The woman does as he says.

Once there the doctor says..."Now please...turn around and crawl back towards me" she does this and all the time the doctor is watching her closely writing in his notebook.

"Thank you you may put your clothes back on now" he says and sits down.

Once dressed the lady sits down again and the doctor leans across and says...


"I'm afraid you cannot get a boyfriend as you have Zackry disease"

"Zackry disease?" asks the woman.

And the doc replies -

"Yes your face looks zackry the same as your arse"

Guest Lord of the Goats

Okay, there is this radio competition. You must make up a word that makes sense when you insert it into a sentence. So, this guy calls up a radio station.


Guy: Hello, my name is Johnny Wilks. I want to participate in the radio competition.

Host:Great! We haven't had anyone call up in days! What's your word?

Guy: Goan, pronounced 'GO-AN.

Host: Alright, use it in a sentence.

Guy: Goan f*** yourself!


The host tunes out, saying that they couldn't use it in their 'good mannered' radio station. Then, another guy calls up.


Guy: Hi, I'm Tom Burg an' I'd like to participate in the competition.

Host: Fine! So what's your word?

Guy: Smee, pronounced S-MEE. Now I'll use it in a sentence.

Host: Go on.

Guy:Smee again! Goan f*** yourself!

Mexico Drops out of 2008 Summer Olympics

Lawyers should never ask a Mississippi grandma a question if they aren't prepared for the answer.



In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grand motherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know me?' She responded, 'Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize you'll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you.'


The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know the defense attorney?'


She again replied, 'Why yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.'


The defense attorney nearly died.


The judge asked both counselors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said,

'If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I'll send you both to the electric chair.'

Who's your best friend?


Without a doubt, it's your dog, not your wife. If you don't believe it, just try this experiment. Put your dog and your wife in the trunk of the car for an hour.


When you open the trunk, which one is really happy to see you!











If your dog is barking at the back door and your wife is barking at the front door….which one do you let in?



Your dog….. because it will stop barking when it gets inside.

A man goes to an exotic tropical island for a vacation. As the boat nears the island, he notices the constant sound of drumming coming from the island. As he gets off the boat, he asks the first native he sees how long the drumming will go on. The native casts about nervously and says "very bad when the drumming stops."

At the end of the day, the drumming is still going and is starting to get on his nerves. So, he asks another native when the drumming will stop. The native looks as if he's just been reminded of something very unpleasant. "Very bad when the drumming stops," he says, and hurries off.


After a couple of days with little sleep, our traveller is finally fed up. He grabs the nearest native, slams him up against a tree, and shouts "I can't take the drumming anymore! It's driving me crazy! What can possibly be worse than this? What happens when the drumming stops?!!"


The native replies, "Bass solo."

If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura,

Kate and Sarah.

If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other

as Fat Boy, Godzilla and Four-eyes.



When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even

though it's only for $32.50.

None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they

want change back.

When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.



A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.

A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.



A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving

cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel from M&S.

The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337.

A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.



A woman has the last word in any argument.

Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.



Women love cats.

Men say they love cats, but when women aren't looking, men kick cats.



A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.

A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife.



A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.

A successful woman is one who can find such a man.



A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.

A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.



A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the bins,

answer the phone, read a book, and get the post.

A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.



Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.

Women somehow deteriorate during the night.



Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children.

She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favourite

foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.

A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.



A married man should forget his mistakes.

There's no use in two people remembering the same thing.

    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New song 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?
