A little boy goes to his father and asks ‘Daddy, how was I born?’

The father answers, ‘Well, son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway!

Your Mom and I first got together in a chat room on Yahoo.
Then I set up a date via e-mail with your Mom and we met at a cyber-cafe.

We sneaked into a secluded room, and googled each other.

There your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive.

As soon as I was ready to upload, We discovered that neither one of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button, nine months later a little Pop-Up appeared that Said:

‘You’ve got Male!



Male logic… flawless

This a conversation between a man and his wife.

Please note that she asks five or six questions which

he answered quite simply,

but then she is speechless after answering only one

question. l bet this happens more often than not to

most husbands out there:

Woman: Do you drink  wine?

Man: Yes

Woman: How many glasses a day?

Man: Usually about three

Woman: How much do you pay per glass?

Man: $5.00 which includes a tip (this is where it gets


Woman: And how long have you been drinking?

Man: About 40-50 years, I suppose

Woman: So a wine costs $5 and you have three

glasses a day which puts your spending each

month at $450. In one year, it would be

approximately $5400 correct?

Man: Correct

Woman: If in 1 year you spend $5400, not accounting

for inflation, the past 50 years puts your spending at

$270,000 correct?

Man: Correct

Woman: Do you know that if you didn’t drink so much

wine, that money could have been put in a step-up

interest savings account and after accounting for

compound interest for the past 50 years, you now could

have bought a new sailboat and an jet airplane?

Man: Do you drink wine?

Woman: No.

Man: Where is your sailboat and an airplane?


And finally  —  an interesting observation from

an Irish Art Gallery

At the National Art Gallery in Dublin, a husband

and wife were staring at the portrait that had them

completely confused.  The painting depicted

three black men totally naked, sitting on a bench. 

Two of the figures had black penises, but the one in

the middle had a pink penis.  The curator of the

gallery realized that they were having trouble

interpreting the painting and offered his personal


He went on for over half an hour explaining how

it depicted the sexual emasculation of African Americans

in a predominately white, patriarchal society. “In fact”,

he pointed out, “some serious critics believe that the

pink penis also reflects the cultural and sociological
oppression experienced by gay men in contemporary


After the curator left, an Irishman approached the

couple and said, “Would you like to know what the

painting is really about?”  “Now why would you claim

to be more of an expert than the curator of the gallery”,

asked the couple?  “Because I am the artist, who painted

the picture,” he replied. “In fact, there are no African

Americans depicted at all. They’re just three Irish coal

miners. The guy in the middle went home for lunch.”
