  1. Two werewolves and a vampire are sitting at a roadside. The werewolves are gnawing on rancid roadkill and making the vampire feel nauseous. The vampire spots a human in a suit and carrying a briefcase walking down the street.

    "'Scuse me lads, goin' for a bite." The vampire rushes off and is about to attack the human when he turns back and sits down dejectedly by the werewolves.

    "Why didn't you suck his blood?" the werewolves asked.

    "He's a lawyer. Professional courtesy between bloodsuckers," the vampire answered. "Why not go eat him rather than that filthy rotted carcass?"

    The werewolves shrug and trot over to the human. They take one sniff of him, then head back and continue to eat their carrion.

    "That was fresh meat! Why'd you pass it up?" the vampire complains.

    "He's going into politics," one wolf says, slurping a moldy kidney down his gullet.

    The other werewolf burps, the stench of a length of bowel coming up with the belch. "Yeah, man. Some crap's too rotten for even US to eat..."

  2. Thank you for helping me celebrate, Christine! You're the best!

  3. A little old lady goes into the store to do some shopping. She is bewildered over the large selection of toilet paper.

    "Pardon me, sir," she says to the store manager, "but can you explain the differences in all these toilet papers?"

    "Well," he replies pointing out one brand, "this is as soft as a baby's kiss. It's $1.50 per roll."

    He grabs another and says, "This is nice and soft as a bunny, strong but gentle, and it's $1.00 a roll."

    Pointing to the bottom shelf he tells her, "We call that our No Name brand, and it's 20 cents per roll."

    "Give me the No Name," she says.

    She comes back about a week later, seeks out the manager and says, "Hey! I've got a name for your No Name toilet paper. I call it John Wayne."

    "Why?" he asks.

    "Because it's rough, it's tough and it don't take crap off anybody!"

  4. Proud Texan Father
    A Texan bought a round of drinks for all in the bar and said that his wife had just produced "a typical Texas baby" weighing twenty pounds.

    Two weeks later he returned to the bar. The bartender recognized him and asked, "Aren't you the father of the typical Texas baby that weighed twenty pounds at birth?"

    "Yup, shore am!"

    "How much does he weigh now?"

    The proud father answered, "Ten pounds."

    The bartender said, "Why, what happened? He did weigh twenty pounds."

    The proud Texas father said, "Jest had him circumcised!"
