Joke collection nr. 7

Note: these jokes (uncensored and certainly not all
politically correct) are shown in the order I received them

A man who says he became violently ill when he bit into a Big Mac and 
found a rolled up condom is suing a McDonald's restaurant.
Jeff Bolling is seeking punitive damages or "exemplary fines" from the 
McDonald's and its parent company, CLP Corp. The company and the 
franchise's management deny any wrongdoing.
In the lawsuit, Bolling claims he became violently ill and suffered 
extreme emotional distress after finding the condom in the sandwich on 
Oct. 6, 1995, after going through a drive-through window. He had tried to 
bite through what he though was a pickle several times, Bolling said.
Bolling says he's now so worried about exposure to the AIDS virus that he 
has himself tested every six months. He said the incident has also turned 
him off of Big Macs.
Police said the condom was not packaged, but in a rolled-up condition as 
it would appear when new. CLP attorney Martin Bloom declined to comment 
on how the condom got into the hamburger.
Doctors have not found any signs of disease in Bolling. The case goes to 
trial Aug. 25.
Age is a Funny Thing:
 Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we
like to get old is when we're kids? If you're less than 10
years old, you're so excited about aging that you think in
fractions.  How old are you?.... "I'm four and a half"....
You're never 36 and a're four and a half going
on five!
That's the key. You get into your teens, now they can't
hold you back. You jump to the next number. How old are you?
"I'm gonna be 16." You could be 12, but you're gonna be 16.
And then the greatest day of your life
become 21. Even the words sound like a
BECOME 21...YES!!!
But then you turn 30....ooohhh what happened there? Makes
you sound like bad milk....He TURNED, we had to throw him
out. There's no fun now.
What's wrong?? What changed?? You BECOME 21, you TURN 30,
then you're PUSHING 40.....stay over there, it's all
slipping away........
You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, you're PUSHING 40, you REACH
50.....and your dreams are gone.
Then you MAKE IT to didn't think you'd make
So you BECOME 21, you TURN 30, you're PUSHING 40, you
REACH 50, you MAKE IT to 60......then you build up so much
speed you HIT 70!
After that, it's a day by day thing. After that, you HIT
Wednesday.... You get into your 80's, you HIT lunch. You
TURN 4:30, my grandmother won't even buy green's an investment you know, and maybe a bad one.
And it doesn't end there....into the 90's you start going
backwards.... I was JUST 92...
Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you
become a little kid again.... "I'm 100 and a half!!!!"
Don't let anyone tell you you're getting old.
 Squash their toes with your rocker.
 The older we get, the fewer things
 seem worth waiting in line for.
 Some people try to turn back their odometers.
 Not me.
 I want people to know why I look like this.
 I have traveled a long way.
 And some of the roads were not paved.
 Maturity means
 being emotionally and mentally healthy.
 It is that time when you know
 when to say yes, when to say no,
 and when to say WHOOPEE !
 Spring is here and so am I,
 But at my age I wonder why
 If nature can be born anew
 Why can't I be recycled too?
 You know you are getting old when
 everything either dries up or starts to leak.
 I don't know how I got over the hill
 without getting to the top.
AGE is mostly a matter of mind.
 If you don't mind it, it doesn't matter.
 TODAY's FORECAST:  Partly rational with brief
 periods of coherent thought giving way to complete
 apathy by tonight
 GOOD NEWS:  I've finally discovered the Fountain of Youth.
 BAD NEWS:  At my age, I've forgotten what I wanted to do with it.
 I'm not confused, I'm just well-mixed
 Never ask old people how they are if you have
 anything else to do that day.
 My mind not only wanders,
 sometimes it leaves completely.

A mangy looking guy goes into a bar and orders a drink. 
The bartender says,"No way. I don't think you can pay for it."
 The guy says, "You're right.  I don't have any money, but if I 
show you something you haven't seen before, will you give me 
a drink?"
The bartender says, "Only if what you show me ain't risque."
 "Deal!" says the guy and reaches into his coat pocket and pulls out a
hamster.  He puts the hamster on the bar and it runs to the end of the
bar, down the bar, across the room, up the piano, jumps on the key
boardand starts playing some Rolling Stones tunes.  And the hamster is
really good.
 The bartender says, "You're right. I've never seen anything like that
before.  That hamster is truly good on the piano."
 The guy downs the drink and asks the bartender for another.
 "Money or another miracle else no drink", says the bartender.
 The guy reaches into his coat again and pulls out a frog.  He puts the
frog on the bar and the frog starts to sing like Mick Jagger.  He has
a marvelous voice and great pitch. A fine singer.
 A stranger from the other end of the bar runs over to the guy and
offershim $300 for the frog. The guy says "It's a deal." He takes the 
hundred and gives the stranger the frog. The stranger runs out of the
 The bartender says to the guy "Are you some kind of nut?  You sold a
singing frog for $300? It must have been worth millions.  You must be
"Not really", says the guy. "The hamster's a ventriloquist." 
This guy goes into the bar Friday night and orders three beers, in
fact every Friday night he goes into the bar and orders three beers 
and drinks them all by himself.  Three beers...every Friday night.  
Not 2.  Never 4.  Always 3.  Well, the bartender can't figure this
out.Without fail this guy comes in.
The bartender finally says to the guy "Every Friday night you come
in here and have three beers.  There must be a story to this.  You
never order 2 beers, or 4 beers, always 3."  
The guy says "Yes there is a  story."  You see, me and my two buddies 
always went out for a beer on Friday night when we were in Vietnam.  
One night while we were drinking we decided that we could continue 
doing this when we return to the states.  We also decided if one of us
didn't make it the other two would  drink the third ones beer. And if 
two didn't make it, the third guy would drink the other two beers.  
The other two didn't make it back so I'm drinking theirs."   
The bartender felt bad.  Well, the next Friday night the guy came back
into the bar as usual but only ordered two beers.  The bartender
couldn't believe it.  Friday after Friday this guy now orders only two 
This went on for some time and the bartender was so puzzled he just
had to ask the guy about it.  The bartender says to him, "I noticed you
have only been ordering two beers for the last few weeks.  There has to 
be a
story here."
The guy says, "Yes indeed there is a story.  You see I joined the
Mormon church and I can't drink beer any more."

An Italian, an Irishman and a Chinese fellow are hired at a
construction site.  The foreman points out a huge pile of 
sand and says to the Italian guy, "Your're in charge of sweeping," 
to the Irishman, "you're in charge of shoveling, and to the 
Chinese guy, 'And you're in charge of supplies.  
"Now, I have to leave for a little while.  I expect you guys to

the pile of sand is untouched. He says to the Italian, "Why didn't you
sweep any of it?"

was in charge of supplies, but he disappeared and I couldn't find him."

The foreman is really pissed off now, and storms off toward the pile
of sand looking for the Chinese guy.
Just then, the Chinese guy springs out from behind the pile of sand
and yells "SUPPLIES!

The Goat
Two guys are walking through the woods and come across this really big,
deep hole.
"Wow.. that looks deep!"  "Sure does.  Toss a few pebbles in there and
see how deep it is."  They pick up a few pebbles, throw them in, and noise.  "Doggone, that is REALLY  deep... here throw one
these big rocks and see how long it takes."  Again, there was no
noise after throwing in the rock.
"Look over here, there's a railroad tie in the weeds.  Lets throw it in,
its gotta make a noise."  The two drag the heavy tie over to the hole and
heave it in.  Not a sound from the hole.
The two stand there, amazed, when suddenly, out of nowhere, a goat
appears, running like the wind.
It rushes straight toward the two men and then past them, running as
fast as its legs will carry it.  Suddenly it leaps into the air and into
the hole.  The two men are astonished by what they've just seen.
Then out of the wood comes a farmer who spots the men and ambles over.
"Hey .. you two guys seen my goat out here?"
"You bet we did!  The darndest thing we've ever seen.  Came running
outta nowhere like crazy and just jumped right into this hole!"
"Nah", says the farmer, " Couldn't have been my goat.  My goat was
chained to a railroad tie."
