An 80 year old man went to the doctor for a check-up and the doctor was amazed at what good shape the guy was in. The doctor asked, "To what do you attribute your good health?"

The old timer said, "I'm a dirt biker and that's why I'm in such good shape. I'm up well before daylight on
Sundays and out sliding around corners, "shootin" sand washes and riding up and down the steepest, gnarliest
hills I can find at the crack of dawn."

The doctor said, "Well, I'm sure that helps, but there's got to be more to it. How old was your dad when he died?" The old timer said, "Who said my dad's dead?"

The doctor said, "You mean you're 80 years old and your dad's still alive? How old is he?"

The old timer said, "He's 99 years old and, in fact, he went riding with me this Sunday, and that's why he's
still alive... he's a dirt biker."

The doctor said, "Well, that's great, but I'm sure there's more to it. How about your dad's dad? How old was he when he died?"

The old timer said, "Who said my grandpa's dead?"

The doctor said, "You mean you're 80 years old and your grandfather's still living! How old is he?"

The old timer said, "He's 117 years old."

The doctor was getting frustrated at this point and said, "I guess he went dirt bikin' with you this Sunday too?"

The old timer said, "No... Grandpa couldn't go this week because he got married."

The Doctor said in amazement, "Got married!! Good Lord!!! Why would a 117-year-old guy want to get married?"

The old timer said, "Who said he wanted to?"

Instant Spode! Welcome to the big club. You'll fit right in here....

Rules for part damage and replacement, part A, sub 2

1) A bent part can never be satisfactorily straightened on the bike.
Removing the part and correctly straightening it guarantees that
it will no longer fit on the bike correctly.
A brand new part will have to be bent to fit the bike.
Expect to swear and bleed.

2) Parts cost *at least* twice as much as you think they will.
OEM parts which you think should be readily in stock at your dealer
rarely are, but obscure parts may be available NOW.
Aftermarket parts may actually cost less, unless you consider the
research time to find out who makes them, who makes _good_ ones,
who offers them at what price, and how long you'll wait to get them.
Expect to swear and pay. 

3) Any part which is in stock and priced at what you are willing to pay 
will invariably turn out to be the wrong part once you get it home. 
Conversely, taking the old part with you to the dealer to compare 
assures that the part you need will need to be ordered.
Since you can't compare the part until it comes in, an incorrect part
will be ordered, and arrive quickly.
After comparison, the correct part will be ordered, only to discover
that it's backordered and will be delayed. 
Special orders are not returnable, or subject to "restocking fee".
Expect to swear and wait.

4) Damage caused by the failure of the part is usually minimal. 
Damage caused by replacing the damaged part is typically catastrophic,
inconvenient or results in great expense or delay. 
Expect to swear and search for small missing pieces or ponder over

Astride his shiny new 125, Frank was thoroughly excited about going riding in the mountains for the first time. After going only a few miles, Frank was surprised to see what appeared to be a half-acre of brown fur just off the trail ahead. Recognizing it as a huge grizzly bear, Frank nailed the throttle hard, hoping to get by before the bear could react. The bear was too quick, though, and with one leap was totally blocking the trail. Frank had no choice but to stop.

"Now that you've disturbed my sleep", said the bear, "you have two choices. Either I maul you to death or we have sex." Frightened beyond belief, Frank decided to bend over.

Still sore a week later, Frank vowed revenge. Back to the cycle shop he went, where he traded in the 125 for a hot 250. Soon he was back on the mountain, heading down the trail. It wasn't long at all before he spotted the grizzly again, napping beside the trail. Feeling certain he had the necessary power this time, Frank nailed the throttle and shot ahead. But once again the bear was too quick, and again he blocked the trail. "That was a big mistake, Frank", said the bear. "But, you know the drill. Either I maul you to death or we have sex... rough sex." Fearful for his life, Frank again decided that it would be wise to comply.

This time it took weeks before Frank recovered enough to get around. But still outraged at the bear, he traded in the 250 and got the hottest 500 money could buy before heading back to the mountain. Now he could outrun the bear, and now he'd prove who was the master! And with the faster 500 under him, it took no time at all before he looked ahead and saw the huge grizzly again. Frank lowered his head, down shifted, and confidently nailed the throttle hard, rocketing ahead so quickly he was barely able to hang on. Incredibly, however, the bear was quicker still, and Frank had no choice but to come to a sliding halt in front of the bear now blocking the trail. A chill ran up his spine as he waited for the bear to speak.

"C'mon, Frank", said the bear. "Admit it. You don't come here to trail ride any more, do you?"

I mean no disrespect, to each his own and all that, and I applaud your efforts at what I must assume is a worthy cause, but being the irreverent guy I am I couldn't pass up a chance to have a lighter look at this......

>The Blessing of the Bikes

I ride a 99 KTM. Fortunately, unlike the early 90s models which came stock with a Factory Curse, the 99s comes stock with a Factory Blessing. However, I have been tempted to seek out an Aftermarket Blessing. I have heard the No Fear (of Fire and Brimstone) Blessing will help the midrange but kinda falls flat when entering the Hereafter. Maybe the other No Fear (Tho I Walk Thru the Valley) Blessing would be better?

But then again it is a modern machine which makes me wonder if I'd be better off with one from the Latter Day Saints, I've heard they can even go back in time and save old, dead bikes. Old Joey Smith did pretty well in the Woods of New York but had some problems when he got to the Midwest and the killer competition there. The "Brigham Young & Brigham Often Race Team" did wonders in the early desert races in Utah, but back then the male riders were allowed multiple cylinder models which are now officially banned but mostly tolerated by the local tech inspectors. With their Blessing they do however advocate storing up a year's worth of race gas, spark plugs and fork oil which seems like a good idea.

Maybe if I just went with the LDS Blessing I wouldn't have to constantly deal with those irritating sales reps in white shirts and black ties on bicycles at my door. The free workshop manuals they hand out are great but they never seem to have one for my model.

The Jehovah's Blessing has unlimited over-rev capabilities, it just goes on and on and on...........

Of course there's no reason to even consider the Quaker Blessing, they don't work on motorized trails, similar to the Sierra Club/SUWA Blessings.

The Jewish Blessing has been around for quite some time but I've heard there are problems with the front end clipping and something about it not being Kosher for Diesel Pigs, which ignores the whole four stroke market.

The Racist Tech Gold Blessing and Blessing Emulators are becoming popular (especially in the woods of Northern Idaho) but I think they only work if you have white plastic and a White Power suspension.

The Catholic Blessing allows you to flog the crap out of your bike all week in practice but magically, on Sunday, you get a fresh top end, a new chain/sprocket set and new knobbies.

I have read some of the Tech Reports on the Hindu Blessing and it seems to indicate to me that if I take good enough care of my 72 250 Bultaco Alpina, pretty soon it will come back as a Cannondale MX400 or YZF400, true?

HAMMER: Originally employed as a weapon of war, the hammer nowadays
is used as a kind of divining rod to locate expensive parts not far
from the object we are trying to hit.

MECHANIC'S KNIFE: Used to open and slice through the contents of
cardboard cartons delivered to your front door; works particularly
well on boxes containing seats and motorcycle jackets.

ELECTRIC HAND DRILL: Normally used for spinning steel Pop rivets in
their holes until you die of old age, but it also works great for
drilling mounting holes in fenders just above the brake line that
goes to the rear wheel.

PLIERS: Used to round off bolt heads.

HACKSAW: One of a family of cutting tools built on the Ouija board
principle. It transforms human energy into a crooked, unpredictable
motion, and the more you attempt to influence its course, the more
dismal your future becomes.

VISE-GRIPS: Used to round off bolt heads. If nothing else is
available, they can also be used to transfer intense welding heat to
the palm of your hand.

OXYACETELENE TORCH: Used almost entirely for lighting various
flammable objects in your garage on fire. Also handy for igniting
the grease inside a brake drum you're trying to get the bearing race
out of.

WHITWORTH SOCKETS: Once used for working on older British cars and
motorcycles, they are now used mainly for impersonating that 9/16 or
1/2 socket you've been searching for the last 15 minutes.

DRILL PRESS: A tall upright machine useful for suddenly snatching
flat metal bar stock out of your hands so that it smacks you in the
chest and flings your beer across the room, splattering it against
that freshly painted part you were drying.

WIRE WHEEL: Cleans rust off old bolts and then throws them somewhere
under the workbench with the speed of light. Also removes
fingerprint whorls and hard-earned guitar calluses in about the time
it takes you to say, "Ouc...."

HYDRAULIC FLOOR JACK: Used for lowering a motorcycle to the ground
after you have installed your new front disk brake setup, trapping
the jack handle firmly under the front fender.

EIGHT-FOOT LONG DOUGLAS FIR 2X4: Used for levering a motorcycle
upward off a hydraulic jack.

TWEEZERS: A tool for removing wood splinters.

PHONE: Tool for calling your neighbor to see if he has another
hydraulic floor jack.

SNAP-ON GASKET SCRAPER: Theoretically useful as a sandwich tool for
spreading mayonnaise; used mainly for getting dog-doo off your boot.

E-Z OUT BOLT AND STUD EXTRACTOR: A tool that snaps off in bolt holes
and is ten times harder than any known drill bit.

TIMING LIGHT: A stroboscopic instrument for illuminating grease

TWO-TON HYDRAULIC ENGINE HOIST: A handy tool for testing the tensile
strength of ground straps and brake lines you may have forgotten to

CRAFTSMAN 1/2 x 16-INCH SCREWDRIVER: A large motor mount prying tool
that inexplicably has an accurately machined screwdriver tip on the
end without the handle.

BATTERY ELECTROLYTE TESTER: A handy tool for transferring sulfuric
acid from a car battery to the inside of your toolbox after
determining that your battery is dead as a doornail, just as you


TROUBLE LIGHT: The mechanic's own tanning booth. Sometimes called a
drop light, it is a good source of vitamin D, "the sunshine vitamin,"
which is not otherwise found under motorcycles at night. Health
benefits aside, it's main purpose is to consume 40-watt light bulbs
at about the same rate that 105-mm howitzer shells might be used
during, say, the first few hours of the Battle of the Bulge. More
often dark than light, its name is somewhat misleading.

PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER: Normally used to stab the lids of old-style
paper-and-tin oil cans and splash oil on your shirt; can also be
used, as the name implies, to round off Phillips screw heads.

AIR COMPRESSOR: A machine that takes energy produced in a
coal-burning power plant 200 miles away and transforms it into
compressed air that travels by hose to a Chicago Pneumatic impact
wrench that grips rusty bolts last tightened 40 years ago by someone
in Sindelfingen, and rounds them off.

PRY BAR: A tool used to crumple the metal surrounding that clip or
bracket you needed to remove in order to replace a 50 cent part.

HOSE CUTTER: A tool used to cut hoses 1/2 inch too short.

A large group on environmentalists was planning to protest at a popular riding area. Upon gathering at the area, they could hear the sounds of dirt bikes being ridden on the other side of a large hill. A few of the rowdier environmentalists decided to take matters into their hands and whup up on the dirty bikers. They scaled the hill and disappeared to the other side.

The sound of the bikes quit, and a quite large scuffle could be heard ensuing. After a short fight, the engines of the dirt bikes fired back up and moments later a Honda appeared atop the hill, flicked the protesters the finger and roosted back down the other side of the hill.

The leader of the enviro's, one Sen. Diane Feinstein, angrily shouted to the
mob to attack the dirt bikers and destroy all of them and make a flaming
pile out of their bikes. The weeny mob tore out up the hill, leaving the
Senator behind of course, and with great threats and shouts, descended the
hill attacking the dirtbikers. A tumultuous roar arose, with the sound of a
horrific battle ongoing. As shrieks of agony and fear came from the far
side of the hill, Sen Feinstein giggled to herself. Suddenly, all became
quiet, as a lone protester crawled down the hill. As the good Senator
removed a desert turtle from his butt, he shouted,  "It's a trap! It's a trap!
There's TWO of them!!!!!!"

Jim Jorgensen is stranded on a desert island, all alone for ten years.  One day, he sees a speck in the horizon. He thinks to himself, "It's not a ship." The speck gets a little closer and he thinks, "It's not a boat." The speck gets even closer and he thinks, "It's not a raft." Then, out of the surf comes this gorgeous blonde woman, wearing a wet suit and scuba gear.

She comes up to the guy and she says, "How long has it been since you've had a cigarette?" "Ten years!" he says. She reaches over, unzips this waterproof pocket on her left sleeve and pulls out a pack of fresh cigarettes. He takes one, lights it, takes a long drag and says, "Man, oh man! Is that good!"

Then she asked, "How long has it been since you've had a drink of whiskey?" He replies, "Ten years!" She reaches over, unzips her waterproof pocket on the right, pulls out a flask and gives it to him. He takes a long swig and says, "Wow, that's fantastic!"

Then she starts unzipping this long zipper that runs down the front of her wet suit and she says to him, "And how long has it been since you've had some REAL fun?" And the man replies, "My God! Don't tell me that you've got a motorcycle in there!"

Date: Mon, 11 Jan 1999 23:07:40 -0800

Sorry for the non-dirtbike related post, but I had to share this with all of
you. I think it sums up this entire Y2K issue that we have all been hearing
so much about. .........

The year 2000 dilemma is solved.

This memo is to announce the development of a new software

We are currently building a data center that will contain all
firm data that is Year 2000 compliant. The program is referred to as
the "Millennia Year Application Software System" (MYASS).

Next Monday at 9:00 there will be a meeting in which I will
show MYASS to everyone. We will continue to hold demonstrations
throughout the month so that all employees will have an opportunity
to get a good look at MYASS.

As for the status of the implementation of the program, I have not
addressed the networking aspects so currently only one person at a
time can use MYASS. This restriction will be removed after MYASS

Several people are using the program already and have come to depend
on it. Just this morning I walked into a subordinate's office and was
not surprised to find that he had his nose buried in MYASS. I've
noticed that some of the less technical personnel are somewhat afraid

Just last week, when asked to enter some information into the program,
I had a secretary say to me "I'm a little nervous, I've never put
anything in MYASS before." I volunteered to help her through her first
time and when we were through she admitted that it was relatively
painless and she was actually looking forward to doing it again. She
went so far as to say that after using SAP and Oracle, she was ready
to kiss MYASS.

I know there are concerns over the virus that was found in MYASS
upon initial installation, but I am pleased to say the virus has been
eliminated and we were able to save MYASS. In the future, however,
protection will be required prior to entering MYASS.

We planned this database to encompass all information associated with
the business. So as you begin using the program, feel free to put
anything you want into MYASS. As MYASS grows larger, we envision a
time when it will be commonplace to walk by an office and see a
manager hand a paper to an employee and say "Here, stick this in

This program has already demonstrated great benefit to the company
during recent OSHA and EPA audits. After requesting certain
historical data the agency representatives were amazed at how
quickly we provided the information. When asked how the numbers could
be retrieved so rapidly our Environmental Manager proudly stated
"Simple, I just pulled them out of MYASS."

Subject: Is hell exothermic?
Date: Mon, 07 Dec 1998 14:08:35 GMT

The following is an actual question given on a University of
Washington chemistry mid term:

"Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat) or endothermic (absorbs heat)?
Support your answer with a proof."

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs using Boyle's Law
(gas cools off when it expands and heats up when it is compressed) or
some variant. One student, however, wrote the following:

First, we need to know how the mass of Hell is changing in time. So,
we need to know the rate that souls are moving into Hell and the rate
they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume that once a soul
gets to Hell, it will not leave. Therefore, no souls are leaving.

As for how many souls are entering Hell, let's look at the different
religions that exist in the world today. Some of these religions
state that if you are not a member of their religion, you will go to
Hell. Since there are more than one of these religions and since
people do not belong to more than one religion, we can project that
all people and all souls go to Hell. With birth and death rates as
they are, we can expect the number of souls in Hell to increase

Now, we look at the rate of change of the volume in Hell because
Boyle's Law states that in order for the temperature and pressure in
Hell to stay the same, the volume of Hell has to expand as souls are
added. This gives two possibilities:

1 - If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate at which
souls enter Hell, then the temperature and pressure in Hell will
increase until all Hell breaks loose.

2 - Of course, if Hell is expanding at a rate faster than the
increase of souls in Hell, then the temperature and pressure will
drop until Hell freezes over.

So which is it?

If we accept the postulate given to me by Ms. Therese Banyan during
my Freshman year "That it will be a cold night in Hell before I sleep
with you," and take into account the fact that I still have not
succeeded in having sexual relations with her, then, #2 cannot be true, and
thus I am sure that Hell is exothermic.

The student got the only A.

The temperature of Heaven can be rather accurately computed. Our
authority is Isaiah 30:26, "Moreover, the light of the Moon shall be as
the light of the Sun and the light of the Sun shall be sevenfold, as
the light of seven days." Thus Heaven receives from the Moon as much
radiation as we do from the Sun, and in addition 7*7 (49) times as much
as the Earth does from the Sun, or 50 times in all. The light we
receive from the Moon is one 1/10,000 of the light we receive from the
Sun, so we can ignore that ... The radiation falling on Heaven will
heat it to the point where the heat lost by radiation is just equal to
the heat received by radiation, i.e., Heaven loses 50 times as much
heat as the Earth by radiation. Using the Stefan-Boltzmann law for
radiation, (H/E)^4 = 50, where E is the absolute temperature of the
earth (-300K), gives H as 798K (525C). The exact temperature of Hell
cannot be computed ... [However] Revelations 21:8 says "But the
fearful, and unbelieving ... shall have their part in the lake which
burneth with fire and brimstone." A lake of molten brimstone means
that its temperature must be at or below the boiling point, 444.6C. We
have, then, that Heaven, at 525C is hotter than Hell at 445C.

A lady from California purchased a piece of timber land in Oregon.
There was a large tree on one of the highest points in the tract. She
wanted to get a good view of her land, so she started to climb the
big tree.

As she neared the top, she encountered a spotted owl that attacked
her. In her haste to escape, the lady slid down the tree to the
ground and got many splinters in her private parts.

In considerable pain, she hurried to the nearest doctor. He listened
to her story, then told her to go into the examining room and he
would see if he could help her. She sat and waited for three hours
before the doctor reappeared. The angry lady demanded, "What took you
so long?"

He replied "Well, I had to get permits from the Environmental
Protection Agency, the Forest Service, and the Bureau of Land
Management before I could remove old-growth timber from a recreational

2. If you think you're fat, you probably are. Don't ask us.
3. Learn to work the toilet seat: if it's up put it down.
4. Don't cut your hair. Ever.
5. Birthdays, Valentines Day, and Anniversaries are not quests to see if he can find the perfect present, again!
6. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, expect an answer you don't want to hear.
7. Sometimes, he's not thinking about you. Live with it.
8. Don't ask him what he's thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as navel lint, the shotgun formation and monster trucks.
9. Get rid of your cat. And no, it's not different; it's just like every other cat.
10. Dogs are better than ANY cats. Period.
11. Sunday = Riding. It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides. Let it be.
12. Shopping is not sport.
13. Anything you wear is fine. Really.
14. You have enough clothes.
15. You have too many shoes.
16. Crying is blackmail. Use it if you must, but don't expect us to like it.
17. Your brother is an idiot, your ex-boyfriend is an idiot and your Dad probably is too.
18. Ask for what you want. Subtle hints don't work.    
19. No, he doesn't know what day it is, he never will. Mark anniversaries on a calendar.
20. Yes, pissing standing up is more difficult than peeing from point blank range while sitting . We're bound to miss sometimes.
21. Most guys own two to three pairs of shoes - what makes you think
we'd be any good at choosing which pair, out of thirty, would  look  good with your dress?
22. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers.
23. A headache that lasts for 17 months is a problem. See a  doctor.

25. Foreign films are best left to foreigners.

27. Don't give us 50 rules when 25 will do.
28. Don't fake it. We'd rather be ineffective than deceived.
29. It is neither in your best interest nor ours to take the "quiz" together.
30. Anything we said 6 or 8 months ago is inadmissible in an argument. All comments become null and void after 7 days.

32. If something we said can be interpreted two ways, and one of those ways makes you sad and angry, we meant the other one.
33. Let us ogle. If we don't look at other women, how can we know how pretty you are?
34. You can either ask us to do something OR tell us how you want it done - not both.
35. Whenever possible, please say whatever you have to say during commercials.
36. Christopher Columbus didn't need directions, and neither do we.
37. Women wearing Wonderbras and low-cut blouses lose their right to complain about having their boobs stared at.
38. Consider "Riding" a mini-vacation from you. We need it, just like you do.
39. Telling us that the models in the men's magazines are airbrushed makes you look jealous and petty and it's certainly not going to deter us from reading the magazines.
40. The relationship is never going to be like it was the first two months we were going out.
And finally, the number one rule that men wish women knew is:

1.  Don't rub the lamp if you don't want the genie to come out.

You can have more than one dirt bike at a time, although riding more than one could prove difficult and dangerous, but exciting.
Your dirt bike acts the same ALL MONTH LONG!
If the bottom end is worn out you can have it rebuilt.
Ditto on the top end.
You can re-sleeve a worn out cylinder.
Your bike doesn't try to change your riding style after you've had it a few months.
Bikes have grips and foot pegs so you don't fall off when you are going really fast and it gets rough and bumpy.
You can feed it all you want and your 250 will NEVER become a 500.
When you go to the store to buy new "filter pads" you needn't be embarrassed.
Filter pads can be cleaned and re-used.
You can buy a silencer for a dirt bike.
It has a kill switch. At your command your bike will be quiet until you tell it to speak once again.
The smaller and more compact your tool bag the better.
Your bike doesn't care if that new fender makes it's rear end look too big.
You get to choose the style and size of the knobbys.
In an emergency you can always ride double.
If you are lost, your bike won't insist you stop and ask directions.
Your bike doesn't care if you get off in the middle of a ride to have a sandwich or a smoke.
No matter how fast you are, you and your bike always arrive at the end of the ride at the same time.
You and your buddy can stop in the middle of a ride and swap bikes. The bike doesn't care who is on it.
It doesn't matter how much you ride it, your bike will never get really fat and start spitting out little PW50s..........

Dirt bikes love to be ridden.
Dirt bikes let you know immediately when you treat them incorrectly.
Dirt bikes throw a lot of mud and shit, but, never at you.
Dirt bikes carry your ass over very rough crap as opposed to positioning you directly in the middle of it.
Your dirt bike a maintenance is as simple as bringing it to the shop.
Dirt bikes only cost you money when you use them as opposed to when you don't.
When she burns rich and dribbles out the back, simply lower the jet size.
When the juggs get clapped out, simply replace them.
Chewing up the knobs is no problem, simply by new ones. With no complaints.
When she looses teeth, replace the sprockets.
Deep water riding doesn't require special lubrication.
They have a little button which you can push at any time which makes them go silent......until you kick them again.
They have seats which get smaller with time.
When they are whining it means you're having fun!
AND BEST OF ALL: She comes in either 2 or 4 strokes. No more than that.

Reasons why dirt bikes are better then men:

1) You can get em on the pipe as often and for as long as you would like.
2) Gas is a good thing.
3) After you rev them up they don’t roll over and go to sleep.
4) When they’re out of gas it only takes a minute to fill them up and get them going again.
5) They don’t blame exhaust coming from their tailpipes on the dog.
6) They don’t expect sex when they take you out for a “good” time..
7) You can kick them to get them started on a Saturday morning and they won’t complain.
8) If you don’t like the size of their pipe you can buy a bigger one.
9) If they stop working, you can take them to the shop to be fixed.

Hummm . I agree with Janet on this one ..But since its supposed to (i hope at least) be humors ..heres one for the ladies.. Guys, this is all a joke ok ?? Kinda also goes with the RMD humor.

For all of you (especially men) who like to send blonde jokes, it's time for  paybacks...

How many honest, intelligent, caring men in the world does it take to do the dishes?  Both of them. 

Why did the man cross the road? He heard the chicken was a slut.

Why don't women blink during foreplay? They don't have time.

Why does it take 1 million sperm to fertilize one egg? They don't stop and ask for directions.

What do men and sperm have in common?  They both have a one-in-a-million chance of becoming a human being.

How does a man show that he is planning for the future? He buys two cases of beer.

What is the difference between men and government bonds? The bonds mature.

Why are blonde jokes so short? So men can remember them.

How many men does it take to change a roll of toilet paper? We don't know; it has never happened.

Why is it difficult to find men who are sensitive, caring and good looking?  They all already have boyfriends.

What do you call a woman who knows where her husband is every night? A widow.

When do you care for a man's company? When he owns it.

Why are married women heavier than single women? Single women come home, see what's in the fridge and go to bed. Married women come home, see what's in bed and go to the fridge.

How did Pinocchio find out he was made of wood? His hand caught fire.

How do you get a man to do sit-ups?  Put the remote control between his toes.

What did God say after creating man? I must be able to do better than that.

What did God say after creating Eve? Practice makes perfect.

How are men and parking spots alike?  Good ones are always taken and what ever is left is handicap or short.

What is the one thing that all men at singles bars have in common?  They're married. 

Man says to God: "God, why did you make woman so beautiful?" God says: "So you would love her." 
"But God," the man says, "why did you make her so dumb?" God says: "So she would love you"
