    ^not so, in the brave world of Alienism, the very word missed, is missed from vocabulary, meaning things happen because thats how they are intended. This type of foward thnking escapes you the heartache of reflecting to the what could haves and the only ifs.

  15. Da PartyStarter Says:

    Bill worked in a pickle factory. He had been employed there for a number of years when he came home one day to confess to his wife that he had a terrible compulsion. He had an urge to stick his penis into the pickle slicer. His wife suggested that he should see a sex therapist to talk about it, but Bill said he would be too embarrassed. He vowed to overcome the compulsion on his own.

    One day a few weeks later, Bill came home and his wife could see at once that something was seriously wrong. “What’s wrong, Bill?” she asked.

    “Do you remember that I told you how I had this tremendous urge to put my penis into the pickle slicer?”

    “Oh, Bill, you didn’t!” she exclaimed.

    “Yes, I did.” he replied.

    “My God, Bill, what happened?”

    “I got fired.”

    “No, Bill. I mean, what happened with the pickle slicer?”

    “Oh… she got fired too.”

  19. Ghost Writer Says:

    Little Thelma comes home from first grade and tells her father that they learned about the history of Valentine’s Day. And, “Since Valentine’s Day is for a Christian saint and we’re Jewish,” she asks, “will God get mad at me for giving someone a valentine?

    Thelma’s father thinks a bit, then says “No, I don’t think God would get mad. Who do you want to give a valentine to?”

    “Osama Bin Laden,” she says.

    “Why Osama Bin Laden,” her father asks in shock?

    “Well,” she says, “I thought that if a little American Jewish girl could have enough love to give Osama a valentine, he might start to think that maybe we’re not all bad, and maybe start loving people a little bit.

    And if other kids saw what I did and then they sent valentines to Osama, he’d love everyone a lot. And then he’d start going all over the place tell everyone how much he loved them and how he didn’t hate anyone anymore.”

    Her father’s heart swells and he looks at his daughter with newfound pride. “Thelma, that’s the most wonderful thing I’ve ever heard.”

    “I know,” Thelma says, “and once that gets him out in the open, the US Marines could blow the shit out of him.”

    since this is joke hour

    A little
    boy goes to his dad and asks, ‘What is Politics?’

    Dad says, ‘Well son, let me try to explain it this way:
    I am the head of the family, so call me The President.

    Your mother is the administrator of the money, so we call her the Government.

    We are here to take care of your needs, so we will call you the People.

    The nanny, we will consider her the Working Class.

    And your baby brother, we will call him the Future.

    Now think about that and see if it makes sense.’

    So the little boy goes off to bed thinking about what Dad has said.

    Later that night, he hears his baby brother crying, so he gets up to check on him . He
    finds that the baby has severely soiled his diaper.

    So the little boy goes to his parent’s room and finds his mother asleep. Not wanting to
    wake her, he goes to the nanny’s room. Finding the door locked, he peeks in the
    keyhole and sees his father in bed with the nanny. He gives up and goes back to
    bed

    The next morning, the little boy says to his father, ‘Dad, I think I understand the
    concept of politics now. ‘

    The father says, ‘good, son, tell me in your own words what you think politics is
    all about.’

    The little boy replies, ‘The President is screwing the Working Class while the
    Government is sound asleep. The People are being ignored and the Future is in
    deep s**t

    that is fantastic ghost writer. 4 1/4 stars. good stuff, great soliloquey, perfect diktion, the syntax was through the roof.

    that’s true, but if you look at where those two cats are right now, joey might actually be in a better space. Kiss’ Def Jam solo is going to flop, if it even comes Mut. And Beanie’s next album is going to be on Koch. TruQt.
