Why own a show dog
There's a danger you know.
You can't own just one,
For the craving will grow.
There's no doubt they're addictive
Wherein lies the danger
While living with lots
You'll grow poorer and stranger.
One dog is no trouble,
And two are so funny,
The third one is easy,
The fourth one's a honey.
The fifth is delightful,
The six ones a breeze.
You find you can live
With a houseful, with ease.
So how 'bout another ?
Would you really dare ?
They're really quite easy
But , Oh lord, the Hair !
With dogs on the sofa,
And dogs on the bed,
And crates in the kitchen,
It's no bother, you said.
They,re really no trouble,
Their manners are great.
What's just one more dog.
And one more little crate ?
The sofa is hairy,
The windows are crusty.
The floor is all footprints,
The furniture's dusty.
The housekeeping suffers,
But what do you care ?
Who minds a few nose prints
And a little more hair ?
There's hardly a limit
To the dogs you can add
The thought of a cutback,
Sure makes you feel bad.
Each one is so special,
So useful, so funny,
The food bill grows larger,
You owe the vet money.
Your folks never visit,
Few friends come to stay.
Except other dog folks
Who live the same way.
Your lawn has now died,
And your shrubs are dead, too
But your weekends are busy,
You're off with your crew.
There's dog food and vitamins
Training and shots.
And entries and travel and
Motels which costs lots.
Is it worth it you wonder ?
Are you cought in a trap ?
Then that favourite comes up
And climbs in your lap.
His look says you're special
And you know that you will
Keep all the critters
In spite of the bill.
Some just for showing,
And some just to breed
And some just for loving
They all fill a need.
But winters are hassle,
The dogs hate it, too,
But they must have their walks
Tho' they're numb & you're blue.
Late evening is awful,
You scream and you shout
At the dogs on the sofa,
Who refuse to go out.
The dogs and the dog shows
The travel, the thrills
The work and the worry
The pressure, the bills.
The whole thing seems worth it
The dogs are your life.
They're charming and funny
And offset the strife.
Your lifestyle has changed.
Things just won't be the same.
Yes those dogs are addictive
And so's the dog game !

Dog show Poem
was a time, there really was,
When I was sweet and tender,
When SHOW DOG meant a Disney Star,
And Bitch was not a gender.
I went to bed at half past ten,
I went to church on Sunday.
On Saturday I baked the beans,
And did the wash on Monday.
But then I got a certain pup,
And an erstwhile friend said, "SHOW"
And so I did, and so I do,
OH! What I didn't know.
I used to dress with flair and style,
That was the life, don't knock it.
But now each dress from bed to ball
Must have a good bait pocket.
I used to have a certain air,
I wallowed in perfume,
I used to smell of Nuit D'Amour,
Now I smell like Mr. Groom.
My furniture was haut decor,
My pets a tank of guppies,
Now I've furniture unstuffed,
And well-adjusted puppies.
Once I spoke in pristine prose,
In dulcet tones and frail,
But now I'm using language,
That would turn a sailor pale
I was taught to be well-groomed
No matter where I went.
Now all the grooming that I do
Is in the handler's tent.
I used to long for clothes and jewels,
And a figure classed as super,
Now the thing I yearn for most
Is a nice new Pooper-Scooper.
I adored a man who murmured verse
Through intimate little dinners,
But now the words I thrill to hear
Are just three-"Best of Winners"
I rise at dawn and pack the car
The road ahead's a long one.
The one I routed on the maps
Invaribly's the wrong one.
I really love this doggy life
I wouldn't care to change it.
But when I get that BEST IN SHOW
I plan to rearrange it.
And when my time on earth is done,
I'll go without much nudging.
Just give me three weeks closing date,
And let me know who's judging.
The last fight was my fault. My wife
"What's on the TV?"
I said, "Dust!"
In the beginning, God created earth and rested.
Then God created man and rested.
Then God created woman. Since then, neither God
nor man has rested.
Why do men die before their wives?
They want to.
A beggar walked up to a well dressed woman
shopping on Rodeo Drive and said, "I haven't
eaten anything in four days." She looked at
him and said, "God, I wish I had your
Do you know the punishment for bigamy?
Young son: Is it true, Dad, I heard that in some
parts of Africa a man doesn't know his wife until
he marries her?
Dad: That happens in every country, son.
A man inserted an 'ad' in the classified:
"Wife wanted". Next day he received a
hundred letters. They all said the same
thing: "You can have mine."
The most effective way to remember your wife's
birthday is to forget it once.

An expensive way to get laundry done for free.
Just think, if it weren't for marriage, men would

If you want your wife to listen and pay undivided
attention to every word you say, talk in your
Then there was a man who said, "I never knew
what real happiness was until I got married;
and then it was too late."
A little boy asked his father, "Daddy, how
much does it cost to get married?
And the father replied, "I don't know son,
I'm still paying.
One day three men were walking along
upon a raging, violent
river. They needed to get to the other side, but
had no idea how to do it.
The first man prayed to God saying, "Please
God, give me the strength to
cross this river." Poof!! God gave him big
arms and strong legs, and he
was able to swim across the river in about two
Seeing this, the second man prayed to God saying,
"Please God, give me
the strength and ability to cross the river."
Poof!! God gave him a
rowboat and he was able to row across the river in
about three hours.
The third man had seen how this worked out for the
other two, so he also
prayed to God saying, "Please God, give me
the strength, ability, and
intelligence to cross this river."
And poof! God turned him into a woman. She looked
at the map, then
walked across the bridge!
Women are honest, loyal, and forgiving.
They are smart, knowing that knowledge is power.
But they still know how to use their softer side
to make a point.
Women want to be the best for their family, their
friends, and themselves.
Their hearts break when a friend dies.
They have sorrow at the loss of a family member,
yet they are strong when they think there is no
A woman can make a romantic evening unforgettable.
Women come in all sizes, in all colors and shapes.
They live in homes, apartments and cabins.
They drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail you to show
how much they care about you.
The heart of a woman is what makes the world spin!
Women do more than just give birth. They bring joy
They give compassion and ideals.
They give moral support to their family and
And all they want back is a hug, a smile and for
you to do the same to people you come in contact
Men are good at lifting heavy stuff and fixing

"Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution.
I shall create a man for you."
"What's a man, Lord?"
"This man will be a flawed creature, with
many bad traits. He'll lie, cheat and be vain; all

But...he'll be bigger, faster, and will like to

aroused, but since you've been complaining, I'll
create him in such a way ! that he will satisfy
your physical needs. He will be witless and will
revel in childish things like fighting and kicking
a ball about. He won't be too smart, so he'll also
need your advice to think properly."

ironically raised eyebrow.

I got a call from a woman who wanted to go to
Capetown. I started to
explain the length of the flight and the passport
information, then she
interrupted me with, "I'm not trying to make
you look stupid, but
Capetown is in Massachusetts." Without trying
to make her look like
the stupid one, I calmly explained, "Capecod
is in Massachusetts,
Capetown is in Africa." Her response . . .
A man called, furious about a Florida package we
did. I asked what was
wrong with the vacation in Orlando. He said he was
ocean-view room. I tried to explain that is not
possible, since Orlando is
in the middle of the state. He replied,
"Don't lie to me. I looked on the map,
and Florida is a very thin state."
I got a call from a man who asked, "Is it
possible to see England from
Canada?" I said, "No." He said,
"But they look so close on the map."
Another man called and asked if he could rent a
car in Dallas. When I
pulled up the reservation, I noticed he had a

When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he

A nice lady just called. She needed to know how it
was possible that her

not understand the concept of time zones. Finally,

A woman called and asked, "Do airlines put
your physical description on
your bag so they know whose luggage belongs to
who? I said, "No, why do

FAT, and that the airline was just putting a
destination tag on her luggage.
A client called in inquiring about a package to
Hawaii. After going over
all the cost info, she asked, "Would it be
cheaper to fly to California
and then take the train to Hawaii?"
I just got off the phone with a man who asked,
"How do I know which plane
to get on?" I asked him what exactly he
meant, to which he replied, "I
was told my flight number is 823, but none of
these darn planes have numbers
A woman called and said, "I need to fly to
Pepsi-cola on one of those
computer planes." I asked if she meant to fly
to Pensacola on a commuter
plane? She said, "Yeah, whatever."
A business man called and had a question about the
documents he needed in
order to fly to China. After a lengthy discussion
about passports, I
reminded him he needed a visa. "Oh no I
don't, I've been to China many
times and never had to have one of those." I
double checked and sure enough, his
stay required a visa. When I told him this he
said, "Look, I've been to
China four times and every time they have accepted
my American Express."
A woman called to make reservations, "I want
to go from Chicago to
Hippopotamus, New York" The agent was at a
loss for words. Finally, the
agent: "Are you sure that's the name of the
town?" "Yes, what flights do
you have?" replied the customer. After some
searching, the agent came
back with, "I'm sorry, ma'am, I've looked up
every airport code in the
country and can't find a Hippopotamus
anywhere." The customer retorted, "Oh
don't be silly. Everyone knows where it is. Check
your map." The agent scoured
a map of the state of New York and finally
offered, "You don't mean
Buffalo, do you?" "That's it -- I knew
it was a big animal."
A blonde was recently hired at an office. Her
first task was to go out
for coffee. Eager to do well her first day on the
job, she grabbed a
large thermos and hurried to a nearby coffee shop.
She held up the
thermos and the coffee shop worker quickly came
over to take her order.
She asked, "Is this big enough to hold six
cups of coffee?" The coffee
shop worker looked at the thermos, hesitated a few
seconds, then finally
replied, "Yeah. It looks like about six cups
"Oh good!" the blonde sighed in relief.
"Then give me two regular, two
black, and two decaf."
is a True Story...
On a recent weekend in
Atlantic City, a woman
won a bucketful of
quarters at a slot machine. She took a break from
the slots for dinner
with her husband in the hotel dining room. But
first she wanted to
stash the quarters in her room.
"I'll be right back and we'll go to
eat," she told her husband and
she carried the coin-laden bucket to the elevator.
As she was about
to walk into the elevator she noticed two men
already aboard --
both were black. One of them was big -- very big
... and an
The woman froze. Her first thought was:
These two are going to rob me.
Her next thought was: Don't be a bigot, they look
nice gentlemen. But racial stereotypes are
powerful, and fear
She stood and stared at the two men. She felt
and ashamed. She hoped they didn't read her mind.
knew -- her hesitation about joining them in the
elevator was all too
obvious. Her face was flushed. She couldn't just
stand there, so
with a mighty effort of will she picked up one
foot and stepped forward
and followed with the other foot and was on the
eye contact, she turned around stiffly and faced
the elevator doors as
A second passed, and then another second, and then
Her fear increased! The elevator didn't move.
Panic consumed her.
My, she thought, I'm trapped and about to be
robbed! Her heart
plummeted -- perspiration poured from every pore.
Then ... one of the
men said, "Hit the floor." Instinct told
her: Do what they tell you. The
bucket of quarters flew upwards as she threw out
her arms and
collapsed on the elevator carpet. A shower of
coins rained down on
her. Take my money and spare me, she prayed.
More seconds passed ...
She heard one of the men say politely,
"Ma'am, if you'll just tell
us what floor you're going to, we'll push the
button." The one who said
it had a little trouble getting the words out. He
was trying mightily to
hold in a laugh. She lifted her head and looked up
at the two men.
They reached down to help her up. Confused, she
struggled to her feet.
"When I told my man here to hit the
floor," said the average sized
one, "I meant that he should hit the elevator
button for our floor. I didn't
mean for you to hit the floor, ma'am." He
spoke genially. He bit his
lip. It was obvious he was having a hard time not
She thought: My, what a spectacle I've made of
myself. She was too
humiliated to speak. She wanted to blurt out an
apology, but words
failed her. How do you apologize to two perfectly
gentlemen for behaving as though they were going
to rob you?
She didn't know what to say. The 3 of them
gathered up the
strewn quarters and refilled her bucket. When the
elevator arrived at her
floor they insisted on walking her to her room.
She seemed a little
unsteady on her feet, and they were afraid she
might not make it down
At her door they bid her a good evening. As she
slipped into her room
she could hear them roaring with laughter while
they walked back to the
elevator. The woman brushed herself off. She
pulled herself together and
went downstairs for dinner with her husband.
The next morning flowers were delivered to her
room - a dozen roses.
Attached to EACH rose was a crisp one hundred
dollar bill. The card
said: "Thanks for the best laugh we've had in
It was signed,

a smaller time window, the pleasant gentleman
asked, "Would you like us to call you before
we come?" I replied that I didn't see how he
would be able to do that, since our phones weren't
working. He also requested that we report future

IDIOTS AT WORK:
I was signing the receipt for my credit card
purchase when the clerk noticed I had never signed
name on the back of the credit card. She informed
me that she could not complete the transaction
unless the card was signed. When I asked
why, she explained that it was necessary to
compare the signature I had just signed on the
receipt. So I signed the credit card in front of
her. She carefully compared the signature to the
one I had just signed on the receipt. As luck
would have it, they matched.
IDIOTS IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD:
I live in a semi-rural area. We recently had a new
neighbor call the local township administrative
office to request the removal of the Deer Crossing
sign on our road. The reason: too many deer
were being hit by cars and he didn't want them to
cross there anymore.
IDIOTS IN FOOD SERVICE:

He smiled knowingly and nodded, "That's why
IDIOT SIGHTING #2:
The stoplight on the corner buzzes when it's safe
to cross the street. I was crossing with an
intellectectually-challenged coworker of mine when
she asked if I knew what the buzzer was for. I
explained that it signals blind people when the
light is red.
Appalled, she responded, "What on earth are
blind people doing driving?!"
IDIOT SIGHTING #3:
At a good-bye luncheon for an old and dear
co-worker who was leaving the company due to

cheerfully, "This is fun. We should do this

IDIOT SIGHTING #5:
When my husband and I arrived at an automobile
dealership to pick up our car, we were told
the keys had been locked in it. We went to the
service department and found a mechanic working
feverishly to unlock the driver's side door. As I
watched from the passenger side, I instinctively
tried the door handle and discovered that it was
unlocked. "Hey," I announced to the
technician, "It's open!" To which he

2. it is a major component in acid rain

6. it decreases effectiveness of automobile brakes

ABILITY TO MAKE AND UNDERSTAND PUNS IS THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF LANGUAGE
Here are the ten first place winners in the International Pun Contest:
1. A vulture boards an airplane, carrying two dead raccoons. The
stewardess looks at him and says, "I'm sorry, sir, only one carrion
allowed per passenger."
2. Two fish swim into a concrete wall. The one turns to the other and
3. Two Eskimos sitting in a kayak were chilly, so they lit a fire in
the craft. Unsurprisingly it sank, proving once again that you can't
have your kayak and heat it too.
4. Two hydrogen atoms meet. One says "I've lost my electron." The other
says "Are you sure?" The first replies "Yes, I'm positive."
5. Did you hear about the Buddhist who refused Novocain during a root
canal? His goal: transcend dental medication.
6. A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing
in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about
an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse.
"But why?", they asked, as they moved off.
"Because," he said," I can't stand chess-nuts boasting in an open
7. A woman has twins and gives them up for adoption.
One of them goes to a family in Egypt and is named "Ahmal." The other
goes to a family in Spain ; they name him "Juan. " Years later, Juan
sends a picture of himself to his birth mother. Upon receiving the
picture, she tells her husband that she wishes she also had a picture
of Ahmal. Her husband responds, "They're twins! If you've seen Juan,
you've seen Ahmal."
8. A group of friars were behind on their belfry payments, so they
opened up a small florist shop to raise funds. Since everyone liked to
buy flowers from the men of God, a rival florist across town thought
the competition was unfair. He asked the good fathers to close down,
but they would not. He went back and begged the friars to close. They
ignored him. So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest
and most vicious thug in town to "persuade" them to close.
Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he'd be back if
they didn't close up shop.
Terrified, they did so, thereby proving that only Hugh can prevent
9. Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the time, which
produced an impressive set of calluses on his feet. He also ate very
little, which made him rather frail and, with his odd diet, he suffered
from bad breath. This made him (Oh, man, this is so bad, it's good) a
super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis.
10. And finally, there was the person who sent ten different puns to
friends, with the hope that at least one of the puns would make them
laugh. No pun in ten did.
