I was shopping at the local supermarket where I selected:

A half-gallon of 2% milk,
A carton of eggs,
A quart of orange juice,
A head of romaine lettuce,
A 2 lb. Can of coffee, and
A 1 lb. Package of bacon.

As I was unloading my items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind me watched as I placed the items in front of the cashier.
While the cashier was ringing up the purchases, the drunk calmly stated, 'You must be single.'

I was a bit startled by this proclamation, but I was intrigued by the derelict's intuition, since I was indeed single. I looked at the six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about my selections that could have tipped off the drunk to my marital status.

Curiosity getting the better of me, I said: 'Well, you know what, you're absolutely right. But how on earth did you know that?

The drunk replied, 'Cause you're ugly.'

Joke Page Editor: Ironically, the following is still true but even more so in the Middle Ages when cholera and other water-borne diseases were rampant.

For those who wish to have a glass of wine.. and those who don't...this is something to think about. As Benjamin Franklin said: In wine there is wisdom, in beer there is freedom, in water there is bacteria. In a number of carefully controlled trials, scientists have demonstrated that if we drink 1 liter of water each day, at the end of the year we would have absorbed more than 1 kilo of Escherichia coli, (E.coli) - bacteria found in feces. In other words, we would be consuming 1 kilo of poop.

However, we do NOT run that risk when drinking wine & beer (or tequila, rum, whiskey or other liquor) because alcohol has to go through a purification process of boiling, filtering and/or fermenting. Remember: Water = Poop, Wine = Health

Therefore, it's better to drink wine and talk stupid, than to drink water and be full of shit

The Cabbie and the Nun

A cabbie picks up a Nun. She gets into the cab, and notices that the very handsome cab driver won't stop staring at her. She asks him why he is staring. "I have a question to ask you, but I don't want to offend you," says the cabbie. "My son, you cannot offend me," says the Nun. "When you're as old as I am and have been a Nun as long as I have, you get a chance to see and hear just about everything. I'm sure that there's nothing you could say or ask that I would find offensive." "Well," said the cabbie, "I've always had a fantasy to have a Nun kiss me." "Well, lets see what we can do about that," the Nun replies. "First, you have to be single and, second, you must be Catholic." The cabbie is very excited and says, "Yes, I'm single and Catholic!" "Okay," says the Nun. "Pull into the next alley." The Nun fulfills his fantasy with a passonate kiss but, when they get back on the road, the cabbie starts crying. "My dear child," says the Nun, "why are you crying?" "Forgive me, Sister, for I have sinned," says the cabbie. "I lied, and I must confess that I'm married and I'm a Methodist." That's okay," says the Nun. "My name is Kevin and I'm going to a costume party."

Most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellmann's mayonnaise was manufactured in England .
In fact, the Titanic was carrying 12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz, Mexico , which was to be
the next port of call for the great ship after its stop in New York . This would have been the largest single shipment of mayonnaise
ever delivered to Mexico .

But as we know, the great ship did not make it to New York .
The ship hit an iceberg and sank, and the cargo was forever lost. The people of Mexico , who were crazy about mayonnaise, and were eagerly awaiting
its delivery, were disconsolate at the loss. Their anguish was so great, that they declared a National Day of Mourning, which they still observe to this day.
The National Day of Mourning occurs each year on May 5th and is known, of course, as Sinko de Mayo.

A man thought to be the oldest living person in the world is celebrating his 116th birthday.
Hryhoriy Nestor was born in what is now Ukraine.The authorities are to mark the occasion
by officially recognising him as the oldest person in Ukraine.
They say they have documents that prove that his birthday is on 15 March 1891.
An attempt is now being made to get him into the international record books.

Hryhoriy puts his long life down to the fact that he has never been married.
