    Two beggars are sitting side by side at a busy intersection in Mexico City.

    One has a cross in front of him. The other one the Star of David. Many people go by and look at both beggars, but only put money into the hat of the beggar sitting behind the cross.

    A priest comes by, stops and watches throngs of people giving money to the beggar behind the cross, but none give to the beggar behind the Star of David.

    Finally the priest goes over to the beggar behind the Star of David and says, "My poor fellow, don't you understand? This is a Catholic country. People aren't going to give you money if you sit there with a 'Star of David' in front of you, especially when you're sitting beside a beggar who has a cross. In fact, they would probably give to him just out of spite."

    The beggar behind the 'Star of David' listened to the priest, turned to the other beggar with the cross and said, "Moishe, look who's trying to teach the Goldstein brothers about marketing."

    The Pope just finished a tour of the East Coast and was taking a limousine to the airport. Since he'd never driven a limo, he asked the chauffeur if he could drive for a while. The reluctant chauffeur pulled over along the roadside, climbed into the back of the limo, and the Pope took the wheel. The Pope then merged onto the highway and accelerated to over 90 mph to see what the limo could do.

    Suddenly, the Pope noticed the blue light of the State Patrol in his side mirror, so he pulled over. The trooper approached the limo, peered in through the windows, then said, "Just a moment please, I need to call in."

    The trooper called in and explained to the chief that he had a very important person pulled over for speeding. "How do I handle this, chief?" asked the trooper. "Is it the Governor?" questioned the chief. "No. This guy is even more important."

    "Is it the President?" asked the chief.

    "No. Even more important."

    "Well, who the heck is it?" screamed the chief.

    "I don't know, sir," replied the trooper, "but he's got the Pope as his chauffeur."

    A truck driver used to amuse himself by running over lawyers he would see walking down the side of the road. Every time he would see a lawyer walking along the road, he would swerve to hit him, and there would be a loud "THUMP" and then he would swerve back onto the road. One day, as the truck driver was driving along he saw a priest hitchhiking. He thought he would do a good turn and pulled the truck over. He asked the priest, "Where are you going, Father?" "I'm going to the church 5 miles down the road," replied the priest. "No problem, Father. I'll give you a lift. Climb in the truck." The happy priest climbed into the passenger seat and the truck driver continued down the road. Suddenly the truck driver saw a lawyer walking down the road and instinctively he swerved to hit him. But then he remembered there was a priest in the truck with him, so at the last minute he swerved back away, narrowly missing the lawyer. However even though he was certain he missed the lawyer, he still heard a loud "THUD". Not understanding where the noise came from he glanced in his mirrors and when he didn't see anything, he turned to the priest and said, "I'm sorry Father. I almost hit that lawyer." "That's okay", replied the priest. "I got him with the door."

    A Russian, a Cuban, an American and a lawyer are riding together on a train. The Russian takes a bottle of the best vodka out of his pack, pours some into a glass, drinks it, and says: "In Russia, we have the best vodka in the world - nowhere in the world you can find vodka as good as the one we produce in the Ukraine. And we have so much of it, that we can just throw it away..." Saying this, he opens the window and throws the rest of the bottle through it. All the others are quite impressed. The Cuban takes a pack of Havanas, unwraps one, lights it, and begins to smoke, saying: "In Cuba, we have the best cigars of the world: Havanas. Nowhere else in the world produces such a fine cigar, and we have so many of them, that we can just throw them away..." Saying that, he opens the window and throws the pack of Havanas through it. Once again, everybody is quite impressed. At this point, the American stands up silently, opens the window, and throws the lawyer through it.

    A man standing in line at a check out counter of a grocery store was
    very surprised when a very attractive woman behind him
    said, "Hello." Her face was beaming.

    He gave her that "who are you look," and couldn't remember ever
    having seen her before.

    Then, noticing his look, she figured she had made a mistake and
    apologized.

    "Look," she said "I'm really sorry but when I first saw you, I
    thought you were the father of one of my children," and walked out
    of the store.

    The guy was dumbfounded and thought to himself, "What the hell is
    the world coming to? Here is an attractive woman who can't keep
    track of who fathers her children. "

    Then he got a little panicky. "I don't remember her," he thought
    but, MAYBE....during one of the wild parties he had been to when he
    was in college, perhaps he did father her child.

    He ran from the store and caught her in the parking lot and
    asked, "Are you the girl I met at a party in college and then we got
    really drunk and had wild crazy sex on the pool table in front of
    everyone?"

    "No", she said with a horrified look on her face. "I'm your son's
    second grade teacher."

    A young man married a beautiful woman who had previously divorced ten husbands. On their wedding night, she told her new husband, "Please be gentle; I'm still a virgin."

    "What?" said the puzzled groom. "How can that be if you've been married ten times?"

    "Well, husband #1 was a Sales Representative; he kept telling me how great it was going to be."

    "Husband #2 was in Software Services; he was never really sure how it was supposed to function, but he said he'd look into it and get back to me."

    "Husband #3 was from Field Services; he said everything checked out diagnostically but he just couldn't get the system up."

    "Husband #4 was in Telemarketing; even though he knew he had the order, he didn't know when he would be able to deliver."

    "Husband #5 was an Engineer; he understood the basic process but wanted three years to research, implement, and design a new state-of-the-art method.. "

    "Husband #6 was from Administration; he thought he knew how, but he wasn't sure whether it was his job or not"

    "Husband #7 was in Marketing; although he had a product, he was never sure how to position it."

    "Husband #8 was a psychiatrist; all he ever did was talk about it."

    "Husband #9 was a gynecologist; all he did was look."

    "Husband #10 was a stamp collector; all he ever did was.......
    God, I miss him."

    "But now that I've married you, I'm so excited."

    "Good," said the husband, "but, why?"

    "You're with the Government. This time I KNOW I'm gonna get SCREWED."
