An Irish priest and a nun were driving through Transylvania one dark night. Suddenly a shape reared up in front of the car, and the priest jammed on the brakes. The figure spread its cape and said, "I vant to drink your blood!"

"It's a vampire!" the priest yelled. "Quick, Sister, lean out the window and show him your cross!"

And the nun leaned out and bellowed, "Get out of the road, ye worthless heathen idiot!"

Guy from the North is driving through Georgia in December. He sees a Nativity scene set up outside a church, but among the shepherds are three men in yellow slickers and fireman's helmets. Curiosity gets the best of the Northerner, so he pulls over and goes into a business across from the Nativity scene. He asks the lady at the counter about the three firemen.
"Oh, those are the Wise Men," she explained.
"So how come they're dressed like that?" the guy asked.
She gave him a pitying look. "Honey, don't you Yankees ever read the Bible? It says right there that 'They came from afar.'"

Guy walks into a bar and says, "I just heard a great redneck joke!"
HUGE guy stands up off a barstool and says, "Just a minute, buddy. Before you tell that joke, I'm Jake. I'm six-three and weigh two-eighty, all muscle. And I'm a redneck. That guy over there is a professional wrestler, and HE's a redneck. And the guy behind the bar has a pistol next to the cash register and HE's a redneck, too. Now, you really want to tell that joke?"
And the fellow thinks and says, "Nah. I don't want to have to explain it three different times."

A cowboy walks out of a bar and a second later comes back in, mighty mad. "Okay," he growls. "Now which one of you sidewindin' hombres went outside an' painted mah horse bright red while I was a-drinkin'?" Nobody answered, and the cowpoke drew his six-shooter and yelled, "I SAID, WHICH ONE OF YOU NO-GOOD POLECATS PAINTED MAH HORSE RED?"
Slowly one of the cowboys at the bar stood up. He was six feet nine inches tall, and he pulled a small cannon from his holster. "I done it," he growled.
And the first cowboy put his gun back in the holster and said, "Just wanted to let you know the first coat's dry."

A young boy asked his mother for a new bike.

His mother, a very religious woman, said, "Son, just pray to Jesus when you really want something."

So, the son, thinking that praying wouldn't be nearly enough, decided to write Jesus a letter: "Dear Jesus, If I am good for a whole month, would you please send me a bike?"

Then he sat there and thought to himself, "A month is a heck of a long time."

So he began to write again: "Dear Jesus, If I am good for a whole week..."

Then he sat there and thought to himself, "A week is a heck of a long time."

And he began to write again: "Dear Jesus, If I am good for a whole day, would you please send me a bike?"

Satisfied with this, the boy began to walk to the mailbox to mail the letter to Jesus. As he approached the mailbox, he looked at the envelope... Then, he tore it to shreds.

He quickly ran home and took the statue of the Virgin Mary off of his bureau. He placed the small statue in a shoe box and taped it shut. He then threw the shoe box into his closet and sat down and wrote another letter:

"Dear Jesus, I'm holding your mother for ransom!"

Farmer Brown goes out one day and buys a brand new stud rooster for his chicken coop.

The cocky young rooster walks over to the old rooster and says: "Ok, old fellow, time to retire."

The old rooster says: "You can't handle all these chickens, look at what it did to me!"

The young rooster replies: "Now, don't give me a hassle about this old man. It's time for the old to step aside and the young to take over -- so take a hike!"

The old rooster says: "Aw, c'mon, just let me have those two old hens over there in the corner. I won't bother you."

The young rooster snarls: "Scram! Beat it! You're washed up! I'm taking over!"

The old rooster thinks for a minute and then says to the young rooster: "I'll tell you what, young fellow, I'll have a race around the farmhouse with you. Whoever wins the race gets full domain over the chicken coop."

The young rooster smiles: "You know I'm going to beat you, old man. So just to be fair, I'm even going to give you a head start."

The two roosters line up in back of the farm house; a hen clucks "Go!" and the old rooster takes off running. About 5 seconds later the young rooster takes off after him.

They round the front of the farm house and the young rooster is only inches behind the old rooster and gaining fast.

Farmer Brown, sitting on the porch, hearing the commotion, looks up and sees what's going on. Quickly, he grabs his shotgun and BOOM! The young rooster is blown to smithereens!

Farmer Brown sadly shakes his head in disgust: "Dammit! That makes the third gay rooster I bought this week."

A man came running into the vet office with his dog in his arms. "Help me!" he said. "Something is wrong with my dog." The girl took him to an exam room and put the dog on the table and went for the vet. The vet came in and said, "Your dog is dead." The man answered, "No, he is not. I want a second opinion." So the vet went out and brought in a cat. He put the cat on the table and it walked around the dog and then shook its head. "See," the vet said, "the dog is dead."

The man said, "No, I won't believe that. I want another opinion." So the vet went out and brought in a black lab dog. The dog walked around the table sniffing and then it shook its head. "See," the vet said, "your dog is dead."

"OK," said the man. "How much do I owe you?" The vet said, "$650." "Wow," said the man. "Is that for telling me my dog is dead?" "No," said the vet. "I charged you $50 for the diagnosis, but there is a $600 charge for the cat scan and the lab test."
