Here´s a joke to start with :)

"There was this guy at a bar, just looking at his drink. He stays like that for half of an hour.Then, this big trouble-making truck driver steps next to him, takes the drink from the guy, and just drinks it all down. The poor man starts crying.

The truck driver says, "Come on man, I was just joking. Here, I'll buy you another drink. I just can't stand to see a man cry.""No, it's not that. This day is the worst of my life. First, I fall asleep, and I go late to my office. My boss, outrageous, fires me. When I leave the building, to my car, I found out it was stolen. The police said that they can do nothing. I get a cab to return home, and when I leave it, I remember I left my wallet and credit cards there. The cab driver just drives away.""I go home, and when I get there, I find my wife in bed with the gardener. I leave home, and come to this bar. And just when I was thinking about putting an end to my life, you show up and drink my poison." "

Thanks so much for participating and good luck! :)

Travel Woes for those traveling men....

Ever notice how a 4 year olds voice is louder than 200 adult voices?

Several years ago, I returned home from a trip just when a storm hit,
with crashing thunder and severe lightning. As I came into my bedroom
about 2 AM, I found my two children in bed with my wife, Karen,
apparently scared by the loud storm. I resigned myself to sleeping in
the guest bedroom that night.

The next day, I talked to the children, and explained that it was OK to
sleep with Mom when the storm was bad, but when I was expected home,
please don't sleep with Mom that night. They said OK.

After my next trip several weeks later, Karen and the children picked me
up in the terminal at the appointed time. Since the plane was late,
everyone had come into the terminal to wait for my plane's arrival,
along with hundreds of other folks waiting for their arriving

As I entered the waiting area, my 4 year old son saw me, and came
running shouting

"Hi, Dad! I've got some good news!"

As I waved back, I said loudly, "What is the good news?"

"The good news is that nobody slept with Mommy while you were away this
time!" Alex shouted.

The airport became very quiet, as everyone in the waiting area looked at
Alex, then turned to me, and then searched the rest of the area to see
if they could figure out exactly who his Mom was.

here's mine :0

A man and his wife were having some problems at home and were giving
eachother the silent treatment. Suddenly, the man realized that the
next day , he would need his wife to wake him at 5:00 AM for an early
morning business flight.
Not wanting to be the first to break the silence (and LOSE), he wrote
on a piece of paper, "Please wake me at 5:00 AM " He left it where he
knew she would find it. The next morning, the man woke up, only to
discover it was 9:00 AM and he had missed his flight. Furious, he was
about to go and
see why his wife hadn't wakened him, when he noticed a piece of paper
by the bed. The paper said, "It is 5:00 AM. Wake up."

Men are not equipped for these kinds of contests.

Helping your father
A clergyman walking down a country lane and sees a young farmer struggling to load hay back onto a cart after it had fallen off.

"You look hot, my son," said the cleric. "why don't you rest a moment, and I'll give you a hand."

"No thanks," said the young man.

"My father wouldn't like it."

"Don't be silly," the minister said.

"Everyone is entitled to a break. Come and have a drink of water."

Again the young man protested that his father would be upset. Losing his patience, the clergyman said, "Your father must be a real slave driver. Tell me where I can find him and I'll give him a piece of my mind!"

"Well," replied the young farmer, "he's under the load of hay."

My son's favourite joke from when he was about 6 (he's 27 now!)

It needs two people to tell it, and they BOTH have to know the joke - that was the problem, he was always trying to tell it to strangers.

"I say I say I say, my dog's got no nose!"
"How does he smell then?"

As we were heading home one night I told my young son to look up in the sky at the "Full Moon." My son looked at the moon then looked back at me and asked, "Mommy, what does the moon eat to get full?"

Saw this joke here

Being a parent changes everything. But being a parent also changes with each baby. Here are some of the ways having a second and third child is different from having your first.

Your Clothes

1st baby: You begin wearing maternity clothes as soon as your OB/GYN confirms your pregnancy.
2nd baby: You wear your regular clothes for as long as possible.

3rd baby: Your maternity clothes ARE your regular clothes.


Preparing for the Birth

1st baby: You practice your breathing religiously.

2nd baby: You don't bother practicing because you remember that last time, breathing didn't do a thing.

3rd baby: You ask for an epidural in your 8th month.


The Layette

1st baby: You pre-wash your newborn's clothes, color-coordinate them, and fold them neatly in the baby's little bureau.

2nd baby: You check to make sure that the clothes are clean and discard only the ones with the darkest stains.

3rd baby: Boys can wear pink, can't they?



1st baby: At the first sign of distress - a whimper, a frown-you pick up the baby.

2nd baby: You pick the baby up when her wails threaten to wake your firstborn.

3rd baby: You teach your 3-year-old how to rewind the mechanical swing.



1st baby: If the pacifier falls on the floor, you put it away until you can go home and wash and boil it.

2nd baby: When the pacifier falls on the floor, you squirt it off with some juice from the baby's bottle.

3rd baby: You wipe it off on your shirt and pop it back in.



1st baby: You change your baby's diapers every hour, whether they need it or not.

2nd baby: You change their diaper every 2 to 3 hours, if needed.

3rd baby: You try to change their diaper before others start to complain about the smell or you see it sagging to their knees.



1st baby: You take your infant to Baby Gymnastics, BabySwing, and Baby Story Hour.

2nd baby: You take your infant to Baby Gymnastics.

3rd baby: You take your infant to the supermarket and the dry cleaner.


Going Out

1st baby: The first time you leave your baby with a sitter, you call home 5 times.

2nd baby: Just before you walk out the door, you remember to leave a number where you can be reached.

3rd baby: You leave instructions for the sitter to call only if she sees blood.


At Home

1st baby: You spend a good bit of every day just gazing at the baby.

2nd baby: You spend a bit of everyday watching to be sure your older child isn't squeezing, poking, or hitting the baby.

3rd baby: You spend a little bit of every day hiding from the children.


Swallowing Coins

1st child: when first child swallows a coin, you rush the child to the hospital and demand x-rays.

2nd child: when 2nd child swallows a coin, you carefully watch for coin to pass.

3rd child: when 3rd child swallows a coin you deduct it from his allowance!

Thanks for the fun way to enter.

cute contest! (and love the necklace!!)

ok i am bad at jokes, but this one always makes me giggle!


At a friend's wedding, everything went smoothly until it was time for the flower girl and her young escort to come down the aisle.

The boy stopped at every pew, growling at the guests. When asked afterward why he behaved so badly, he explained, "I was just trying to be a good ring bear."

A husband visited a marriage counsellor and said, " When we were first married, I would come home from the office and my wife would bring my slippers and out cute little dog would run around barking. Now after ten years, it's all different. When i come home, the dog brings the slippers and my wife runs around barking."

See how scary marriage is?

My favorite blonde joke of all time (and I am a blonde):

A blonde was driving down the road. On both sides of the roads are corn fields. She sees something out of the corner of her eye and slams on her brakes.

Out in the middle of the field, there's a blonde sitting on the ground, rowing as hard as she can in the field. No boat or anything, just rowing in the middle of the field.

The driver gets out of her car and yells, "You know - it's blondes like you that give the rest of us a bad name! If I could swim, I'd come out there and kick your a**!"

My favourite joke ever is a bit cheesy but I love it:

Q: What's a bee with it's legs crossed doing on the motorway?

A: Looking for a bee pee station!

BP stations are petrol stations for anyone who doesn't have them. Maybe I should have mentioned that first.. Meh.

An old farmer wrote to his son in jail: "..but I won't be able to turn the potato field this year. I'm getting too old. Wish you were here to help."
The son writes back from jail: "Don't touch the potato field. That's were I
hid the bodies"
Next thing you know, the place is full of cops digging and searching all over. The farmer writes his son all about it.
The son writes back: "I'm glad,it was the best I could do from here"

Great jokes. Gotta give you mine.

A man is driving down a country lane. A chicken is running alongside him.
He goes faster; the chicken goes faster
He puts his foot down and really zooms down the lane; the chicken keeps up.
The chicken makes a right turn into a farmyard and stops knowing it is safe.
The man notices the chicken has 3 legs and goes to the farmhouse to ask about it.
"oh yes" says the farmer, "I breed them with three legs because I like a leg, the wife likes a leg and the daughter likes a leg."
The man asks "How clever, How do they taste?"
The farmer says, "I don't know, I've never caught one!"
Boom Boom!
