I think a little time for silliness - there is a lot of tension and sadness due to the trials and tribulations of dealing with prostate cancer ....
-just a little break... ( initial lines inspired by the great conversations at last night's chat room session)


Two Seminal Vesicles walk into a bar ... how come the floor here is so sticky?


Two Vas Deferens walk into a bar, one is staring at his cell phone - I don't know what happened? I was talking to the boys and I got cut off!



( ducks and covers - or a one poster put it - peking ducks and covers)

okay...

A urologist, an oncologist, and a radiologist walk into a bar. Then a horse walks in. The bartender says, "Why the long face?"

A urologist walks into a bar. The radiologist ducks.

What is the difference between a hematologist and a urologist? A hematologist pricks your finger.

What don't you want to hear after a prostate exam?
"Was I wearing my ring before the exam?"

...my turn to run and duck.

I wish I had the ability to make a joke or even remember one, so my duty is to laugh for those seeking the HW comedian post.

We can't be serious all the time, so thanks for starting this Bronson.

David - I think you can thank Galileo for starting me on this tangent last night.....

I am an artist not an engineer so I cannot do any of those catheter fluid drip computations - maybe... a new SAT question ...

If a man with recent prostate cancer surgery boards a train from Utica, New York, heading towards Portland, Maine, if at every stop 3 x the passengers in the train get on and only 2 x the passengers get off , how many pads will the man go through if the train is stopped at each stop for 15 minutes each....

A large dark horse walks into a bar and orders a whisky. The bartender says, "do you know we have a whisky named after you?
The horse, quite surprised, replies, "you have one called Eric ? "

An old prospector shuffled into the town of El Indio , Texas leading an old tired mule. The old man headed straight for the only saloon in town, to clear his parched throat. He walked up to the saloon and tied his old mule to the hitch rail. As he stood there, brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a young gunslinger stepped out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other.

The young gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed, saying, "Hey old man, have you ever danced?" The old man looked up at the gunslinger and said, "No, I never did dance... never really wanted to."

A crowd had gathered as the gunslinger grinned and said, "Well, you old fool, you're gonna' dance now," and started shooting at the old man's feet. The old prospector, not wanting to get a toe blown off, started hopping around like a flea on a hot skillet. Everybody was laughing, fit to be tied.

When his last bullet had been fired, the young gunslinger, still laughing, holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the saloon. The old man turned to his pack mule, pulled out a double-barreled shotgun, and cocked both hammers. The loud clicks carried clearly through the desert air.

The crowd stopped laughing immediately. The young gunslinger heard the sounds too, and he turned around very slowly. The silence was almost deafening. The crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the old timer and the large gaping holes of those twin barrels. The barrels of the shotgun never wavered in the old man's hands, as he quietly said, "Son, have you ever kissed a mule's ass?"

The gunslinger swallowed hard and said, "No sir..... but..... I've always wanted to."

There are a few lessons for us all here:


* Never be arrogant.

* Don't waste ammunition.

* Whiskey makes you think you're smarter than you are.

* Don't mess with old men, they didn't get old by being stupid.

A group of 40 year old buddies discussed where they should meet for dinner.

Finally it was agreed upon that they should meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the waitress's there had low cut blouses and were very young.

10 years later at 50 years of age, the group once again discussed where they should meet for dinner. Finally it was agreed that they should meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the food there was very good and the wine selection was good also.

10 years later at 60 years of age, the group once again discussed where they should meet for dinner. Finally it was agreed that they should meet at the Ocean View restaurant because they could eat there in peace and quiet and the restaurant had a beautiful view of the ocean.

10 years later, at 70 years of age, the group once again discussed where they should meet for dinner. Finally it was agreed that they should meet at the Ocean View restaurant because the restaurant was wheel chair accessible and they even had an elevator.

10 years later, at 80 years of age, the group once again discussed where they should meet for dinner. Finally it was agreed that they should meet at the Ocean View restaurant because they had never been there before.
