Throwing stuff at the internet to see what sticks
Friday, April 23, 2004 Joke Show Overflow
So the Joke Show is over. It was last Saturday. You can listen to it here if you missed it.
Here's the thing about the Joke Show – I've read nine quintillion jokes the past couple of months. I have more jokes in my brain than neurons at this point. I can't keep them in. And of course, there's only time on the show to tell two hundred or so of them.
Now, I know how ridiculous it is to use a web journal to tell jokes. You don't come here so I can tell you jokes. You come here out of abject ignorance of all of the better stuff the Internet has to offer. But you're here, and I've got all these jokes, so you might as well get comfortable.

A man appears before St. Peter at the pearly gates. "Have you ever done anything of particular merit?" St. Peter asks.
"Well, I can think of one thing," the man offers. "On a trip to the Black Hills, out in South Dakota, I came upon a gang of high-testosterone bikers who were threatening a young woman. I directed them to leave her alone, but they wouldn't listen. So I approached the largest and most heavily tattooed biker. I smacked him on the head, kicked his bike over, ripped out his nose ring and threw it on the ground, and told him, 'Leave her alone now or you'll answer to me.'"
St. Peter is impressed. "When did this happen?"
"Just a couple of minutes ago."

Ole and Lena lived on a lake in Northern Minnesota. It was near the end of winter and spring was just beginning. Ole asked Lena if she would walk across the frozen lake to the general store to pick him up some tobacco. She asked for some money, but he told her to put it on their tab. So she walked across, got the tobacco and walked back. Then she asked Ole why he didn't send her with any money. He said, "I vasn't goin' to send a dollar ven I vasn't sure how tick de ice vas."

At a nursing home a group of seniors were sitting around talking about all their ailments. "My arms have gotten so weak I can hardly lift this cup of coffee," said one. "Yes, I know," said another. "My cataracts are so bad I can't even see my coffee." "I couldn't even mark an X at election time, my hands are so crippled," volunteered a third. "What? Speak up! What? I can't hear you!" said a fourth. "I can't turn my head because of the arthritis in my neck," said a fifth, to which several nodded weakly in agreement. "My blood pressure pills make me so dizzy I can hardly walk!" exclaimed another. "I forget where I am, and where I'm going," said an elderly gent. "I guess that's the price we pay for getting old," winced an old man as he slowly shook his head. The others nodded in agreement. "Well, count your blessings," said one woman cheerfully. "Thank God we can all still drive."

A blonde pushes her BMW into a gas station. She tells the mechanic it died. After he works on it for a few minutes, it is idling smooth. She says, "What's the story?" He replies, "Just crap in the carburetor." She asks, "How often do I have to do that?"
