Subj:     Casteller (S891d)
          From: tom on 1/31/2014
Photo from

 The tradition of building castells originated in Valls,
 near the city of Tarragona, Spain, in the southern part
 of Catalonia towards the end of the 18th century.

 A castell is considered a success when stages of its
 assembling and disassembling, can be done in complete
 succession.  The assembly is complete once all castellers
 have climbed into their designated places, and the
 enxaneta climbs into place at the top and raises one
 hand with four fingers erect.  The highest towers have
 a height spanning of nine or ten people from ground up.

Subj:     Swiss Meets Two Americans (S274)
          From: Joke-Of-The-Day on 5/3/2002

 A Swiss man, looking for directions, pulls up at a bus
 stop where two Americans are waiting. "Entschuldigung,
 koennen Sie Deutsch sprechen?" he asks.  The two
 Americans just stare at him.

 "Excusez-moi, parlez vous Francais?" he tries.  The two
 continue to stare.

 "Parlare Italiano?" No response.

 "Hablan ustedes Espanol?" Still nothing.

 The Swiss guy drives off, extremely disgusted.  The first
 American turns to the second and says, "Y'know, maybe we
 should learn a foreign language."

 "Why?" says the other. "That guy knew four languages, and
 it didn't do him any good."

Subj:     'Initiation Well' Sintra, Portugal (S972)
          From: Stacy on Facebook

Located near the historic center of Sintra,
Portugal lies the Quinta da Regaleira - a
spectacular estate that sits in a World
Heritage protected landscape.  While thousands
of tourists flock to the castle every year to
admire the unique architecture of the Quinta
de Regaleira that combines Gothic, Egyptian,
Moorish and Renaissance features, one of its
most fascinating features is located beneath
the ground - a pair of wells spiraling deep
within the earth. The wells were never used,
nor intended for water collection. Instead,
these mysterious underground towers were used
for secretive initiation rites.

At the bottom of one of the wells there is a
compass over a Knights Templar cross, which is
said to have been  Monteiro's herald and a sign
of his Rosicrucianism.

Subj:     Illegal's Poem (S319b)
          From: DafterLafter on 3/4/2003

 I cross ocean, poor and broke,
 Take bus, see employment folk.

 Nice man treat me good in there,
 Say I need to see welfare.

 Welfare say, "You come no more,
 we send cash right to your door."

 Welfare checks, they make you wealthy,
 Medicaid it keep you healthy!

 By and by, I got plenty money,
 thanks to you, American dummy.

 Write to friends in mother-land;
 tell them come fast as you can.

 They come in turbans and Ford trucks,
 I buy big house with welfare bucks.

 They come here, we live together,
 more welfare checks, it gets better!

 Fourteen families, they moving in,
 but neighbor's patience wearing thin.

 Finally, white guy moves away,
 now I buy his house, and then I say,

 "Find more aliens for house to rent."
 And in the yard I put a tent.

 Send for family they just trash,
 But they, too, draw the welfare cash!

 Everything is very good,
 and soon we own the neighborhood.

 We have hobby -- it's called breeding,
 Welfare pay for baby feeding.

 Kids need dentist? Wife need pills?
 We get free! We got no bills!

 American crazy! He pay all year,
 to keep welfare running here.

 We think America darn good place!
 Too darn good for the white man race.

 If they no like us, they can scram,
 Got lots of room in Pakistan.

Subj:     How Yodeling Was Invented (S315, S587)
          From: JokesUncut on 1/22/2003

 Have you ever wondered where and how yodeling began?
 California? Oregon? Switzerland?  Most believe it
 originated in Switzerland, but here's the real version.

 Many years ago a man was traveling through the mountains of
 Switzerland.  Nightfall was rapidly approaching and he had
 nowhere to sleep.  He went up to a farmhouse and asked the
 farmer if he could spend the night.  The farmer told him that
 he could sleep in the barn.

 As the story goes, the farmer's daughter came down from
 upstairs and asked her father, "Who is that man going into
 the barn?"

 "That's some fellow traveling through," said the farmer.
 "He needs a place to stay for the night, so I said he could
 sleep in the barn."

 The daughter said, "Perhaps he is hungry."  So she prepared
 him a plate of food and took it out to the barn.

 About an hour later, the daughter returned.  Her clothing
 disheveled and straw in her hair.  Straight up to bed she

 The farmer's wife was very observant.  She then suggested
 that perhaps the man was thirsty.  So she fetched a bottle
 of wine, took it out to the barn, and she too did not
 return for an hour.  Her clothing was askew, her blouse
 buttoned incorrectly and her hair all messed up.  She also
 headed straight to bed.

 The next morning at sunrise the man in the barn got up and
 continued on his journey, waving to the farmer as he left.
 When the daughter awoke and learned that the visitor was
 gone, she broke into tears. "How could he leave without
 even saying goodbye," she cried.  "We made such passionate
 love last night!"

 "What?" shouted the father as he angrily ran out of the
 house looking for the man, who by now was halfway up the
 mountain.  The farmer screamed up at him, "I'm going to
 get you! You had sex with my daughter!"

 The man looked back down from the mountainside, cupped his
 hand next to his mouth, and yelled out, "LAIDTHEOLADEETOO."

 once using a little braking, I decided to try it a second
 time without using the brakes.

 When I was twelve years old, every kid in my neighborhood
 built a marble shoot in their closet.  We would see whose
 shoot would take the longest for the marble to reach the
 floor.  No one wanted to destroy their shoots, but we needed
 the stuff on the shelves.  Today I'm hooked on bridge, Zoo
 World, and collecting jokes, so I can relate to this happy,
 strange, old man.
