You have the right to remain
silent. Anything you say will
be misquoted AND MISUNDERSTOOD AND then used AND HELD against
IF YOU GIVE UP THAT RIGHT YOU

Subj: The Ten Commandments Of Marriage (S409b)
From: jbcary1 on 11/20/2004
Marriages are made in heaven.
But so again, are thunder
If you want your wife to listen
and pay strict attention
to every word you say, talk in your sleep.
Marriage is grand -- and divorce is at least 100 grand!
Married life is very frustrating.
In the first year of
marriage, the man speaks and the woman listens.
In the second year, the woman speaks and the man listens.
In the third year, they both speak and the neighbors listen.
When a man opens the door of
his car for his wife, you can
be sure of one thing: Either the car is new or the wife is.
Marriage is when a man and woman become as one;
The trouble starts when they try to decide which one.
Before marriage, a man will lie
awake all night thinking
about something you say.
After marriage, he will fall asleep before you finish.
Every man wants a wife who is
economical, and a good cook but the law allows only one wife.
Marriage and love are purely matter of chemistry.
That is why wife treats husband like toxic waste.
A man is incomplete until he is married.
After that, he is finished..
Bonus Commandment story.
A long married couple came upon a wishing well.
The wife leaned over, made a wish and threw in a penny.
The husband decided to make a wish too.
But he leaned over too much,

(See 'Man With Only 24 Hours To Live Wants Sex' in SEX1

Sally was standing vigil over
her husband's deathbed. As
she held his hand, her warm tears ran silently down her
face, splashed onto his face, and roused him from his
He looked up and his pale lips
began to move slightly.
"My darling Sally," he whispered.
Hush, my love," she said.
"Go back to sleep. Shhh.
But he was insistent. "Sally,"
he said in his tired voice.
"I have to talk. I have something I must confess to you."
"There's nothing to confess,"
replied the weeping Sally.
"It's all right. Everything's all right, go to sleep now."
"No, no. I must die in
peace, Sally. I slept with your
sister, your best friend and your mother."
Sally mustered a pained smile
and stroked his hand. "Hush
now John, don't torment yourself. I know all about it,"
she said, "Now you be still, and let the poison work."
Subj: Husband Shares Wife's Birth Pain (S134, S638c)
From: mbucher on 8/21/99
and From: ginafm on 4/2/2009
A married couple went to the
hospital together to have their
baby delivered. Upon their arrival, the doctor said he had
invented a new machine that would transfer a portion of the
mother's pain to the father of the baby. He asked if they
were willing to try it out. They were both very much in
favor of it.
The doctor set the knob to 10
percent for starters, explaining
that even 10 percent was probably more pain than the father
had ever experienced before. But as the labor progressed,
the husband felt fine, so he asked the doctor to go ahead and
bump it up a notch. The doctor then adjusted the machine to
20 percent pain transfer. He husband was still feeling fine.
The doctor checked the husband's
blood pressure and pulse and
was amazed at how well he was doing. Then, they decided to
try 50 percent. The husband continued to feel quite well.
Since it was obviously helping out his wife considerably, he
encouraged the doctor to transfer ALL the pain to him. The
wife delivered a healthy baby with virtually no pain. She
and her husband were ecstatic.
When the husband arrived back
at home, the mailman was dead
on the front porch.
Subj: Husband Pinches Wife's Butt And Breast (S124)
From: JOKE-OF-THE-DAY.com on 6/10/99
One morning while making breakfast,
a man walked up to his
wife and pinched her on her butt and said, "You know if you
firmed this up we could get rid of your girdle." While this
was on the edge of intolerable, she thought herself better
and replied with silence.
The next morning the man woke
his wife with a pinch on the
breast and said, "You know if you firmed these up we could
get rid of your bra." This was beyond a silence response,
so she rolled over and grabbed him by his package. With a
death grip in place she said, "You know if you firmed this
up we could get rid of the postman, the gardener, the
butler, the pool man, and your brother."

who also happens to be her
husband's best friend. They make love for hours, and
afterwards, while they're just laying there, the phone rings.
Since it is the woman's house,
she picks up the receiver.
Her lover looks over at her and listens, only hearing her
side of the conversation...
(She is speaking in a cheery voice)
"Hello? Oh, hi. I'm
so glad that you called. Really?
That's wonderful. I am so happy for you. That sounds
terrific. Great! Thanks. Okay. Bye bye." She hangs up
the telephone and her lover asks, "Who was that?"
"Oh" she replies, "that was my

From: RFSlick on 4/30/99
Joe woke up one morning and looked
for his wife, but his
wife wasn't there. She had awakened and was preparing
breakfast in the kitchen. Joe was afraid he might spoil
'the moment' by getting up, so he called his little boy
and sent this note to his wife:
THE TENT POLE IS UP,
THE CANVAS IS SPREAD,
THE HELL WITH BREAKFAST,
COME BACK TO BED.
The wife answered the note and
sent it back by the boy.
TAKE THE TENT POLE DOWN
PUT THE CANVAS AWAY
THE MONKEY HAD A HEMORRHAGE
NO CIRCUS TODAY.
So he sent another note down. It read:
THE TENT POLE'S STILL UP
AND THE CANVAS STILL SPREAD
SO DROP WHAT YOU'RE DOING
AND COME GIVE ME SOME HEAD
To which she replied:
I'M SURE THAT YOUR POLE'S
THE BEST IN THE LAND

Subj: Husband Only Wants Sex In Dark (S228, S552b)

and From: allenbergman on 8/16/2007
Alice was becoming frustrated
by her husband's insistence
that they make love in the dark. Hoping to free him of his
inhibitions, she flipped on her reading lamp one passionate
night-only to find a cucumber in his hand.
"Is THIS", she asked, pointing
to the vegetable, "what you've
been using on me for the last 5 years?"
"Honey, let me explain..."
"Why, you sneaky bastard!" she screamed.
"You impotent son of a -"
"Speaking of sneaky," her husband
coolly interjected, "maybe

Subj: Poem For Mom And Dads (S104)
From: auntieg on 99-01-18
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray my sanity to keep.
For if some peace I do not find,
I'm pretty sure I'll lose my mind.
I pray I find a little quiet
Far from the daily family riot
May I lie back--not have to think
about what they're stuffing down the sink,
or who they're with, or where they're at
and what they're doing to the cat.
I pray for time all to myself
(did something just fall off a shelf?)
To cuddle in my nice, soft bed
(Oh no, another goldfish--dead!)
Some silent moments for goodness
(Did I just hear a window break?)
And that I need not cook or clean--
(well heck, I've got the right to dream)
Yes now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray my wits about me keep,
But as I look around I know--
I must have lost them long ago!

Subj: How To Be A Good Wife?? (S289b)
From: humorlist-digest V2 #19 on 98-01-20
and From: mjsl on 8/13/2002
Ever check out some of the old
school text books our ancient
ancestors from the 1950s used to learn from?? Some of them
have some great stuff in them.
The following excerpt is not
exactly a joke, but it is a
good read. It comes from a 1950s New Zealand High School
Home Economics text book which aims at teaching young women
how to be good wives.
This is genuine, by the way;
I swear I haven't touched it.
Similar stuff can be found in most Western text books from
the era - check it out for yourself.
Oh, how the times have changed...
* Have dinner ready: Plan
ahead, even the night before, to
have a delicious meal on time for his return. This is a
way of letting him know you are thinking about him and are
concerned about his needs. Most men are hungry when they
get home and a prospect of a good meal (especially his
favourite dish) is a part of the warm welcome needed.
* Prepare yourself: Take
15 minutes to rest so you'll be
refreshed when he arrives. Touch up your make-up, put a
ribbon in your hair and be fresh-looking. He has just
been with a lot of work weary people. Be a little gay
and a little more interesting for him. His boring day
may need a lift and it is one of your duties to provide it.
* Clear away the clutter:
Make one last trip through the
main part of the house just before your husband arrives,
and gather up the school books, toys, paper, etc. Then
run a dust cloth over the tables. In the cooler months
of the year, you should prepare and light a fire for him
to unwind by so your husband will feel he has reached a
haven of rest and order, and it will give you a lift, too.
After all, catering for his comfort will provide you with
immense personal satisfaction.
* Prepare the children:
Take a few moments to wash the
children's faces (if they are small), comb their hair and,
if necessary, change their clothing. They are his little
treasures and he would like to see them playing the part.
* Minimise all noise: At
the time of his arrival,
eliminate all noise of the washer, dryer and vacuum. Try
to encourage the children to be quiet. Be happy to see
* Greet him with a warm
smile and show sincerity in your
desire to please him.
* Listen to him: You may
have a dozen important things to
tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time.
Let him talk first, remember his topics of conversation
are more important than yours.
* Make the evening his:
Never complain if he comes home
late or goes out to dinner, or other places of entertainment
without you. Instead, try to understand his world of strain
and pressure and his very real needs to be home and relaxed.
Your goal is to try to make sure your home is a place of
peace, order, tranquillity, where your husband can revive
himself in body and spirit.
* Some don'ts: Don't
greet him with problems or complaints.
Don't complain if he is late for dinner, or even if he stays
out all night; count this as minor compared to what he might
have gone through that day. Don't ask him about his actions,
or question his judgement or integrity; remember, he is the
master of the house and will always exercise this with
fairness and truthfulness - you have no right to question him.
A good wife always knows her place!
* The Goal: Try to make
your home a place of peace and order
where your husband can relax.

1. Have dinner ready:
Make reservations ahead of time.
If your day becomes too hectic just leave him a voice
mail message regarding where you'd like to eat and at
what time. This lets him know that your day has been
crappy and gives him an opportunity to change your mood.
2. Prepare yourself: A
quick stop at the "LANCOME" counter
on your way home will do wonders for your outlook and
will keep you from becoming irritated every time he
opens his mouth. (Don't forget to use his credit card!)
3. Clear away the clutter:
Call the housekeeper and tell
her that any miscellaneous items left on the floor by
the children can be placed in the Goodwill box in the
4. Prepare the children:
Send the children to their rooms
to watch television or play nintendo.
5. Minimize the noise:
If you happen to be home when he
arrives, be in the bathroom with the door locked.
6. Some DON'TS: Don't
greet him with problems and
complaints. Let him speak first, and then your
complaints will get more attention and remain fresh in
his mind throughout dinner. Don't complain if he's
late for dinner; simply remind him that the leftovers
are in the refrigerator and you left the dishes for him
7. Make him comfortable:
Tell him where he can find a
blanket if he's cold. This will really show you care.
8. Listen to him: But don't ever let him get the last word.
9. Make the evening his:
Never complain if he does not take
you out to dinner or to other places of entertainment; go
with a friend or go shopping (use his credit card).
10. The Goal: Try to keep
things amicable without reminding
him that he only thinks the world revolves around him.
Subj: New Parent Material
How do you advise non-parents
on how to get ready for
Preparation for parenthood is
not just a matter of reading
books and decorating the nursery. Here are 12 simple tests
for expectant parents to take to prepare themselves for the
real-life experience of being a mother or father.
1. Women: to prepare for maternity,
put on a dressing gown
and stick a beanbag-chair down the front. Leave it there
for 9 months. After 9 months, take out 10% of the beans.
Men: to prepare for paternity,
go to the local pharmacy,
tip the contents of your wallet on the counter, and tell
the pharmacist to help himself.
Then go to the supermarket.
Arrange to have your salary
paid directly to their head office. Go home. Pick up the
paper. Read it for the last time.
2. Before you finally go ahead
and have children, find a
couple who are already parents and berate them about their
methods of discipline, lack of patience, appallingly low
tolerance levels, and how they have allowed their children
to run riot. Suggest ways in which they might improve
their child's sleeping habits, toilet training, table
manners and overall behavior. Enjoy it -- it'll be the
last time in your life that you will have all the answers.
3. To discover how the nights
will feel, walk around the
living room from 5pm to 10pm carrying a wet bag weighing
approximately 8-12 lbs. At 10pm put the bag down, set
the alarm for midnight, and go to sleep. Get up at 12
and walk around the living room again, with the bag, till
1 AM. Go to sleep get up at 2am and make a drink. Go to
bed at 2:45 AM. Get up again at 3am when the alarm goes off.
Sing songs in the dark until 4 AM. Put the alarm on for 5am.
Get up. Make breakfast. Keep this up for 5 years. Look
4. Can you stand the mess children
make? To find out,
first smear peanut butter onto the sofa and jam onto the
curtains. Hide a fish finger behind the stereo and leave
it there all summer. Stick your fingers in the flowerbeds
then rub them on the clean walls. Cover the stains with
crayons. How does that look?
5. Dressing small children is
not as easy as it seems:
first buy an octopus and a string bag. Attempt to put
the octopus into the string bag so that none of the arms
hang out. Time allowed for this - all morning.
6. Take an egg carton.
Using a pair of scissors and a pot
of paint turn it into an alligator. Now take a toilet tube.
Using only scotch tape and a piece of foil, turn it into a
Christmas cracker. Last, take a milk container, a ping
pong ball, and an empty packet of Coco Pops and make an
exact replica of the Eiffel Tower. Congratulations. You
have just qualified for a place on the playgroup committee.
7. Forget the Miata and buy a
Taurus. And don't think you
can leave it out in the driveway spotless and shining.
Family cars don't look like that. Buy a chocolate ice cream
bar and put it in the glove compartment. Leave it there.
Get a quarter. Stick it in the cassette player. Take a
family size packet of chocolate cookies. Mash them down
the back seats. Run a garden rake along both sides of the
8. Get ready to go out: wait
outside the toilet for half an
hour. Go out the front door. Come in again. Go out.
Come back in. Go out again. Walk down the front path.
Walk back up it. Walk down it again. Walk very slowly
down the road for 5 minutes. Stop to inspect minutely
every cigarette end, piece of used chewing gum, dirty
tissue and dead insect along the way. Retrace your steps.
Scream that you've had as much as you can stand, until the
neighbors come out and stare at you. Give up and go back
into the house. You are now just about ready to try taking
a small child for a walk.
9. Always repeat everything you say at least five times.
10. Go to your local supermarket.
Take with you the nearest
thing you can find to a pre-school child - a fully grown
goat is excellent. If you intend to have more than one
child, take more than one goat. Buy your week's groceries
without letting the goats out of your sight. Pay for
everything the goats eat or destroy. Until you can easily
accomplish this do not even contemplate having children.
11. Hollow out a melon.
Make a small hole in the side.
Suspend it from the ceiling and swing it from side to side.
Now get a bowl of soggy Weetabix and attempt to spoon it
into the swaying melon by pretending to be an airplane.
Continue until half the Weetabix is gone. Tip the rest
into your lap, making sure that a lot of it falls on the
floor. You are now ready to feed a 12-month old baby.
12. Learn the names of every
character from Postman Pat,
Fireman Sam and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. When you
find yourself singing "Postman Pat" at work, you finally
qualify as a parent.

Subj: I Love Her, But... (S276b)
From: http://www.twistedhumor.com/ on 12/23/2000
(A collection of men's thoughts on their women.)
... she has an uncanny way of
standing between me and the
television screen. Bases loaded, two strikes, three balls.
The crowd goes wild, the pitch flies, and all I can see is
her butt. -- Howard, Dodge City, Kan.
... she was furious when I got
up early once and made her
breakfast. Called me controlling. How dare I decide that
she would eat breakfast,let alone what she'd have?
-- Ted, Wexford, Pa.
... what's mine is hers.
I buy her negligees; she sleeps
in my T- shirts. When she's cold she wears my wool socks
to bed, never her own. She steals my half-used razors;
new ones are too sharp. She even wears my boxers. I'm
tempted to switch to briefs just to see what she'd do.
-- Dave, Martha's Vineyard, Mass.
... she makes lists; Things to
buy, things to do, people
to call. If it's not on the list, it doesn't get done.
Once, to be funny, I put "sex" on the list. Mistake.
Now it has to be on the list, or it doesn't get done.
-- Nick, Wheeling, W.Va.
... you can hear her eat soup
from the next room.
-- Bruce, Bridgewater, N.J.
... when she gets an idea in
her head, there's no stopping
her. And no rest for anyone until it's done. It's not so
bad when the idea is to bake cookies, or even to go on
vacation. But when it's to build a new house, or to get
pregnant, things get pretty intense.
-- Jim, Minneapolis
... my wife thinks everyone should
be a vegetarian. During
meals, she asks people how they can eat dead cows, or if
they know that their pork chops used to be smarter than
their dogs. -- Miles, Shreveport, La.
... every so often boom!
Shes a brunette. Or I come home
to a redhead. Actually, I have no idea what her natural
color is. -- Cary, Seattle
... she'll brush her teeth but
she won't go to the dentist.
She says she's not afraid of the pain; she just doesn't
want to put herself in the hands of any fellow who'd
choose to be a dentist. -- Terence, Gary, Ind.
... Shes stopped shaving her
legs. She says that now
