Three blondes were in a car accident and were killed. Upon meeting Peter at the pearly gates Peter explained they would be allowed admission if they could tell him what Easter was. The first blonde says (insert mall speak as you see fit),"Oh that's easy! Everyone knows that Easter is when you bake a big turkey dinner, have family over and give thanks!" Poof, she disappeared. The second blonde rolls her eyes and says, "I'm so sure! Everyone knows Easter is when you buy everyone presents and get a tree to decorate. It's my favorite holiday!" Poof, she is gone. The third blonde says,"I can't believe they said that! Everyone knows Easter is when Christ was persecuted, and sentenced to death on the cross. Three days later he emerged from the tomb, saw his shadow and we had six more weeks of winter!" Poof!

"What's this?" he asks. "Cojones, senor," the waiter replies. "What are cojones?" the man asks."Cojones," the waiter explains, "are the testicles of the bull who lost at the arena this afternoon."At first the man is disgusted, but being the adventurous type, he decides to try this local delicacy. To his amazement, it is quite delicious. In fact, it is so good that he decides to come back again the next night and order it again. This time, the waiter brings out the plate, but the meaty objects are much smaller.What's this?" he asks the waiter. "Cojones, senor," the waiter replies."No, no," the man objects, "I had cojones yesterday and they were much bigger than these.""Senor," the waiter explains, "the bull does not always lose."
