Two elderly women were out driving in a large car, both
could barely see over the dashboard. As they were
cruising along they came to an intersection. The stoplight
was red but they just went on through. The woman in the
passenger seat thought to herself "I must be losing it, I
could have sworn we just went through a red light". After
a few more minutes they came to another intersection and
the light was red again and again they went right though. This time the woman in the passenger seat was sure she was really concnerned that she was losing it and was getting nervous, she decided to pay close attention to the road and the next intersection to see what was going on. At the next intersection, sure enough, the light was red and they went right through and she turned to the other woman and said "Mildred! Did you know we just ran through three red lights in a row! You could have killed us! Mildred turned to her and said "Oh, I'm driving?"

A man is walking along a beach and discovers an old, rusty lamp; he shines it up and out pops a genie. The genie says "Congratulations! You get one wish for having liberated me from the lamp--unfortunately, I'm a budget genie, so only one wish."

The man thinks for a moment and says, "I've always wanted to go to Hawaii, but I'm scared of airplanes and boats. Could you build me a bridge so I could drive over there?"

The genie responds, "Are you out of your mind?! Think of all the concrete we'll have to use, the depth of the pilings, the stress ratios! It's next to impossible! Can't you think of something else?"

The man thinks for a moment and says, "Well, I've always wanted to know how a woman's mind functions. What makes them think the way they do? Could you tell me the secret?"

The genie sighs. "Do you want the bridge in two lanes or four?"

A Lewinsky Joke for the Post-Lewinsky Madness:

President Clinton, The French Ambassador, and the Mexican Ambassador are dining in a lovely French restaraunt, and of course, since it is a lovely French restaraunt and all, all the waiters speak in "Francais". The waiter approaches the Mexican ambassador, asking, "Le Tequila?", to which the ambassador responds, "Oui!" The waiter then travels to the French Ambassador, asking, "Le Champane?", to which the French Abassador responds "Oui!". Finally the waiter approaches our great leader, asking "Le Whiskey?"
The president rounds angrily upon the waiter, wagging his finger while belting out a loud "Don't even TALK about her!"
