Here are the five essential things

new babies want.








More Stupid Than

A Speeding Bullet



written by

Jaron Summers




Trapped in

The Great Pyramid



His eyes bugged out when he saw that I had several hundred dollar bills. "This way," he said with a toothless grin, indicating an opening about one metre square in the pyramid.








I am not sure where he came from or how he learned to do what he did

but he was one of the most bizarre characters who ever settled in our village.

He was an electrician ...







A guy who really knows

how to help you with your screenplay.





Saving Gay Christians ...


As Christians we knew Brother Fügenpacker was mentally ill and if he kept up his "unnatural ways" he would go to hell.





My wife, Kate, never gets angry with me.

And I never get angry or even impatient with her.

You see, whenever we speak, we always refer to somebody else.

Let me give you an example.






3 Passorts




Despite my suggestion to remove a part of

Gary's brain, the surgeon said he would wrap

the offending artery in Teflon, of all things.








Kate: So explain this canceled check for

$1,000 made out to Sees Chocolates.

I realize you have a sweet tooth, but

this is ridiculous.




3 Passorts



Urban myth has it that Elk

can escape from Canadian

Parks.  Possibly.  I investigate.








Since the diet allows for slight

modifications, my wife Kate and

I occasionally interpret this differently.





Room 4 Rent



One of the basic glues of

 modern society is gossip. 





Room 4 Rent



Geniuses, such as myself, achieve statesmanship (the ultimate diplomacy) through pure genius.






My wife, who is part Irish, says

her forefathers should have

charged more for eggs.




In our kitchen we installed a Price Pfister faucet.  You can pull out the nozzle (like an elephant trunk) and drench your wife so she looks like Paris Hilton in that hamburger commercial.






Above is the famous Ha'penny Bridge

in downtown Dublin. Lovers write

their names on tiny padlocks and

clip them to all parts of the bridge :)






He mentioned that for the last 16 years no one in Los Angeles had ever paid off a mortgage.

I noticed his knees were shaking.





Occasionally, when scammers play

games with me, I see how far I

can go with them.


You can go home!

Part I

Background: Coronation, Canada (pop. 999), celebrates its centennial and I'm invited to speak.

You can still go home!

Part II


Background: Coronation, Canada (pop. 999), celebrates its centennial and I'm invited to speak. I confide to anyone who will listen, including the postman and gardener, that  I'm the keynote speaker and guest of honor.







I listen to senators and garbage collectors referring to themselves as public servants and my mind immediately substitutes public enemy and their faces turn to a twisted image of Jimmy Cagney as a two-bit gangster.


DRIVE makes you think.  At least it did us. But not everyone agrees it's a great play.

I read a mean spirited review of DRIVE.

Here's what I thought of the reviewer—and, if you read it you will get my take on DRIVE.



I'm disgusted that everyone's making crude jokes about our legally (former) Elected Official: Anthony W**ner .

I am starting a contest.





Guys,  I know you don't want a 19 year old guy in the house.  So obviously no 19 year old women, right? 




A short story from a career criminal




I participated in two rituals recently.




Rare Mosaic of what appears to be

Concordes on the king's chamber of the

tomb of Ramesses II (1303 BC – 1213 BC)

          As a matter-of-fact it was aboard the Concorde that I was treated like  an idiot and the captain pointed at me after we landed, then whispered rude things.


Okay, okay, I told a series of small

fibs.  Here is what happened on the Concorde.






"You idiot," she said. "You're making a milkshake. What do you think is in that?"




Kate: Please explain this canceled check for $1,000 made out to Sees Chocolates. I realize you have a sweet tooth, but this is ridiculous.






Part two

I would tie Sees Chocolates to the dollar.

 Like the Mayans


Huge 300 pound pigs charge through the gardens ... I plan to murder one and eat him





....the coat on that giant 12-foot rabbit is made from skinned panda bears.  Apparently a pack of them lost their hides at the 21 table.  Click Here.






"Lock your doors" advises a law enforcement spokesman familiar with the situation.  A woogly world controlled by anonymous sources is on the way.



The mightiest empire the world had known was brought to a standstill with a few box cutters and terrorists who could not even land a plane.





And it came to pass that Mr. and Mrs. God got up one morning. 

It was a bright and sparkly day.  (One advantage in living a few hundred yards from the sun.)

I am looking for a room to rent mainly on Thursday afternoon to evening. Could be other days rarely. My girlfriend and I would be meeting there.



Our condo had become a colossal trash compactor.

My wife, Kate, and I have had our most serious arguments because of extreme clutter, spawned by her deep-seated neuroses.



I am not sure where he came from or how he learned to do what he did but he was one of the most bizarre characters who ever settled in our village.

The cellular phone or cell is the world’s most successful sex prop.







Merry Christmas

I am saddened by the way your life has gone. Let us speak frankly.

The waters off the coast of Kona, Hawaii are said to be magical. 

And I have a story about that magic. It involves gypsies, a piper and a whale.




So how did these stars become

so famous without using e-mail

or owning cell phones?

Hang Ups

Donna Babing, working with the Sierra Club, is behind legislation barring cell phone calls on federally owned wetlands.  OMG!


This seems dangerous.

Like Bambi mailing mapquest directions

of his home to the Big Bad Wolf.



Our friend harvests and roasts the best coffee in the world.

The bad news: he only has 200 pounds each year. He and his wife produce Kona coffee for their family and friends each Christmas.

 The Best Cup of Coffee


To the Toronto Police Department:

Hi, Officer Bubbles and I would do a bang up job of fighting crime and/or evil.  Promise.





My wife, the book thief,

spawns a great invention.




Dr. Paul

The remarkable medical doctor who

created one of the greatest health care

plans in the history of the world.

Room for Rent


...this might seem like an ad for our home. But it's a game. See if you can find 1 rooster, 2 mice and 3 robins. For

a laugh click on the final mouse.






She want$ to live with me (1)


...Juliet wants to live in our home.




She still want$ to (2)


...with a few stipulations.




She hate$ me (3)


            ...with NO stipulations.




We Dance for You


...Kate, my wife, and our friends Larry and Bev do a St. Patty's jig for you. Which one am I?  Hint: there's two of me.




 I may bail out AMX


Always get your money back. 1. write to the CEO and list his/her accomplishments. 2. Tell the CEO why you are a life long and great customer. 3. Make him/her smile.


This hardly ever fails. Try it!








Thrown out of a B&B
