    A senior citizen was chatting with his 80-year-old buddy. 
    "So I hear you're getting married?" 
    "Yep!" "Do I know her?" "Nope!" 
    "This woman, is she good looking?" "Not really." 
    "Is she a good cook?""Nah, she can't cook too well." 
    "Does she have lots of money?" "Nope! Poor as a church mouse." 
    "Well, then, is she good in bed?" "I don't know." 
    "Why in the world do you want to marry her then?" 
    "Because she can still drive!"

  • Last Meal
    Three men, an Italian, a Frenchman, and a Jew, were condemned to be executed. Their captors told them that they had the right to have a final meal before the execution.
    They asked the Frenchman what he wanted. "Give me some good French wine and French bread," he requested. So they gave it to him, he ate it, and then they executed him. Next it was the Italian's turn. "Give me a big plate of pasta," said the Italian. So they brought it to him, he ate it, and then they executed him. Now it was the Jew's turn. "I want a big bowl of strawberries, " said the Jew. "Strawberries!!! They aren't even in season!" "So, I'll wait..." (Thanks to Christians United).

  • Funeral Cost Summary
    Three old guys were out walking. 
    First one said, "Windy, isn't it?" 
    Second one said, "No, it's Thursday!" 
    Third one said, "So am I. Let's go get a beer!"

  • Why Arizona Needs a Death with Dignity Act

    An elderly man visited the doctor for a checkup. "Mr. Smith, you’re in great shape," said the doctor afterwards. "How do you do it?"

    "Well," said Mr. Smith, "I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, and the good Lord looks out for me. For weeks now, every time I go to the bathroom in the middle of the night, he turns the light on for me."

    Concerned, the doctor found Mrs. Smith in the waiting room and told her what her husband had said.

    "I don’t think that’s anything to worry about," she said. "And on the bright side, it does explain ho’s been peeing in the fridge."

    WHY DOES ARIZONA NEED A DEATH WITH DIGNITY ACT?

  • "Death By Stupidity"

       In some foreign country a priest, a lawyer and an engineer are about to be guillotined.
       The priest puts his head on the block, they pull the rope and nothing happens -- he declares that he's been saved by divine intervention-- so he's let go .
       The lawyer is put on the block, and again the rope doesn't release the blade, he claims he can't be executed twice for the same crime and he is set free too.
       They grab the engineer and shove his head into the guillotine, he looks up at the release mechanism and says, "Wait a minute, I see your problem...."
