    2: WHY THE USA IS IN TROUBLE - Courtesy of: REDSKY

    A DC airport ticket agent offers some examples of 'why' our country is in trouble!

    1. I had a New Hampshire Congresswoman ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn't get messed up by being near the window.
    (On an airplane!)

    2. I got a call from a candidate's staffer, who wanted to go to Capetown. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information, and then she interrupted me with, ''I'm not trying to make you look stupid, but Capetown is in Massachusetts.''
    Without trying to make her look stupid, I calmly explained, "Cape Cod is in Massachusetts, Capetown is in Africa."
    Her response -- click.

    3. A senior Vermont Congressman called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando. He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that's not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state.
    He replied, "don't lie to me, I looked on the map and Florida is a very thin state!"

    4. I got a call from a lawmaker's wife who asked, ''Is it possible to see England from Canada ?'' I said, ''No.''
    She said, ''But they look so close on the map.''

    5. An aide for a cabinet member once called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas. I pulled up the reservation and noticed he had only a 1-hour layover in Dallas. When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, ''I heard Dallas was a big airport, and we will need a car to drive between gates to save time.''

    6. An Illinois Congresswoman called last week. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:30 a.m., and got to Chicago at 8:33 a.m. I explained that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois, but she couldn't understand the concept of time zones.
    Finally, I told her the plane went fast, and she bought that.

    7. A New York lawmaker called and asked, ''Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know whose luggage belongs to whom?'' I said, 'No, why do you ask?' She replied, ''Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a tag on my luggage that said (FAT), and I'm overweight. I think that's very rude!'' After putting her on hold for a minute, while I looked into it. (I was dying laughing). I came back and explained the city code for Fresno, Ca. is (FAT - Fresno Air Terminal), and the airline was just putting a destination tag on her luggage.

    8. A Senator's aide called to inquire about a trip package to Hawaii. After going over all the cost info,
    she asked, ''Would it be cheaper to fly to California and then take the train To Hawaii?''

    9. I just got off the phone with a freshman Congressman who asked, ''How do I know which plane to get on?'' I asked him what exactly he meant,
    he replied, ''I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these planes have numbers on them.''

    10. A lady Senator called and said, ''I need to fly to Pepsi-Cola, Florida. Do I have to get on one of those little computer planes?'' I asked if she meant fly to Pensacola, FL on a commuter plane.
    She said, ''Yeah, whatever, smarty!''

    11. A senior Senator called and had a question about the documents he needed in order to fly to China. After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded him that he needed a visa. 'Oh, no I don't. I've been to China many times and never had to have one of those.'' I double checked and sure enough, his stay required a visa. When I told him this
    he said, ''Look, I've been to China four times. and every time they have accepted my American Express!''

    12. A New Mexico Congress woman called to make reservations, ''I want to go from Chicago to Rhino, New York.'' I was at a loss for words. Finally, I said, ''Are you sure that's the name of the town?'' 'Yes, what flights do you have?'' replied the lady. After some searching, I came back with, ''I'm sorry, ma'am, I've looked up every airport code in the country and can't find a rhino anywhere." ''The lady retorted, ''Oh, don't be silly! Everyone knows where it is. Check your map!'' So I scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered, ''You don't mean Buffalo, do you?''
    The reply? ''Whatever! I knew it was a big animal.''

    4: THE CLEAN END - Courtesy of: GREG M.

    There is an annual contest at Texas A&M University calling for the most appropriate definition of a contemporary term.

    This year's term was - `Political Correctness.'

    The winner wrote: - `Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end.'

    2. There is no limit.
    3. They taste just like chicken.
    4. They don't like beer, pickup trucks, country music or Jesus, and
    5. They are directly responsible for the death of Dale Earnhardt.
    The Pentagon expects the problems in Iraq to be over by Friday.

    6: THE ITCH - Courtesy of: STEWART T.

    Once upon a time lived a beautiful Queen with large breasts.

    Nick the Dragon Slayer obsessed over the Queen for this reason. He knew that the penalty for his desire would be death should he try to touch them, but he had to try.
    One day Nick revealed his secret desire to his colleague, Horatio the Physician, the King's chief doctor.

    Horatio thought about this and said that he could arrange for Nick to more than satisfy his desire, but it would cost him 1000 gold coins to arrange it.

    Without pause Nick readily agreed to the scheme.

    The next day, Horatio made a batch of itching powder and poured a little bit into the Queen's bra while she bathed. Soon after she dressed, the itching commenced and grew intense.
    Upon being summoned to the Royal Chambers to address this incident, Horatio informed the King and Queen that only a special saliva, if applied for four hours, would cure this type of itch, and that tests had shown that only the saliva of Nick the Dragon Slayer would work as the antidote to cure the itch.

    The King, eager to help his Queen, quickly summoned Nick to their chambers. Horatio then slipped Nick the antidote for the itching powder, which he put into his mouth.
    For the next four hours, Nick worked passionately on the Queen's large, and magnificent, breasts. The Queen's itching was eventually relieved, and Nick left satisfied, hailed as a hero.

    Upon returning to his chamber, Nick found Horatio demanding his payment of 1,000 gold coins.
    With his obsession now satisfied, Nick couldn't have cared less and, knowing that Horatio could never report this matter to the King, and with a laugh told him to get lost.

    The next day, Horatio slipped a massive dose of the same itching powder into the King's underwear.
    The King immediately summoned Nick.

    The moral of the story.... Pay your bills.

    7: 5 MINUTE MANAGEMENT COURSE - Courtesy of: JEFF A.

    Lesson 1:

    A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings.
    The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs.
    When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbor...
    Before she says a word, Bob says, 'I'll give you $800 to drop that towel.'
    After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob, after a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves.
    The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs.
    When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, 'Who was that?'
    'It was Bob the next door neighbor,' she replies.
    'Great,' the husband says, 'did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?'

    Moral of the story:

    If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.

    Lesson 2:

    A priest offered a Nun a lift.
    She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg.
    The priest nearly had an accident.
    After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg.
    The nun said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?'
    The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?'
    The priest apologized 'Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.'
    Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way.
    Upon his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, 'Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.'

    Moral of the story:

    If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.

    Lesson 3:

    A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.
    They rub it and a Genie comes out.
    The Genie says, 'I'll give each of you just one wish.'
    'Me first! Me first!' says the admin clerk 'I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.' Puff! She's gone.
    'Me next! Me next!' says the sales rep. 'I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.'
    Puff! He's gone.
    'OK, you're up,' the Genie says to the manager.
    The manager says, 'I want those two back in the office after lunch'

    Moral of the story:

    Always let your boss have the first say.

    Lesson 4
    An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing.
    A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, 'Can I also sit like you and do nothing?'
    The eagle answered: 'Sure, why not.'
    So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.

    Moral of the story:

    To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.

    Lesson 5

    A turkey was chatting with a bull.
    'I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree' sighed the turkey, 'but I haven't got the energy.' 'Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?' replied the bull. They're packed with nutrients....'
    The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.
    The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.
    Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree.
    He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree. < p>Moral of the story:

    Bull Shit might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.

    Lesson 6

    A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field.
    While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him.
    As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was.
    The dung was actually thawing him out!
    He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.
    A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.
    Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.

    Moral of the story:

    (1) Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.
    (2) Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.
    (3) And when you're in deep shit, it's best to keep your mouth shut!

    8: THE TALKING DOG - Courtesy of: REDSKY

    A guy is driving around the back woods of Montana and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house: 'Talking Dog For Sale '
    He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard.

    The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador retriever sitting there.
    'You talk?' he asks.
    'Yep,' the Lab replies.

    After the guy recovers from the shock of hearing a dog talk, he says 'So, what's your story?'

    The Lab looks up and says, 'Well, I discovered that I could talk when I was pretty young. I wanted to help the government, so I told the CIA.
    In no time at all they had me jetting from country to country, sitting in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured a dog would be eavesdropping.'
    'I was one of their most valuable spies for eight years running.
    But the jetting around really tired me out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger so I decided to settle down.
    I signed up for a job at the airport to do some undercover security, wandering near suspicious characters and listening in.
    I uncovered some incredible dealings and was awarded a batch of medals..' 'I got married, had a mess of puppies, and now I'm just retired.'

    The guy is amazed. He goes back in and asks the owner what he wants for the dog.

    'Ten dollars,' the guy says.

    'Ten dollars? This dog is amazing! Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?'

    'Because he's a liar. He never did any of that stuff .

    11: HEARING TEST - Courtesy of: REDSKY

    A man feared his wife was not hearing as well as she used to, and he thought she might need a hearing aid. Not quite sure how to approch her, he called the family doctor to discuss the problem.
    The doctor told him there is a simple, informal, test the husband could perform to give the doctor a better idea about her hearing loss.
    "Here's what you do," said the doctor. "Stand about 40 feet away from her and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you.
    If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a resonse.
    That evening, the wife was in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was in the den.
    He says to himself, "I'm about 40 feet away. Let's see what happens.
    In a normal tone he asks, "Honey, what's for dinner?
    No response.
    So the husband moves closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his wife, and repeats, "Honey, what's for dinner?" Still no response.
    Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his wife and asks, "Honey, what's for dinner?
    Again, no response.
    So, he walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away.
    "Honey, what's for dinner?
    Again, there is no response.
    So he walks right up behind her. "Honey, what's for dinner?

    "Earl, for the 5th time, CHICKEN!"

    13: 6 TRUTHS OF LIFE - Courtesy of: KINTHINIA

    1. You cannot touch all your teeth with your tongue.
    2. All idiots, after reading #1, will try it.
    3. And discover that #1 is a lie.
    4. You're smiling now because you're an idiot.
    5. You soon will forward this to another idiot.
    6. There's still a stupid smile on your face.

    I apologize about this.
    But I'm an idiot and I needed company.
