Thanks Karen, and with that hilarious "knee slapper"(giant yawner) we will close Friday Joke Day (hopefully forever). I will look them over and seriously scrutinize them (showem to my neighbor bob) and see if I can possibly pick a winner. The winner will be announced at Fosters on cruise night. Winner will have to be present (otherwise i'll have to mail this double dipped chocolate pile of goo to you in a manila folder) to collect their prize. Thank you all for these clever (yeah right) and truly side splitting jokes.

Message: John:
Someone was asking about Jim West. I met his son, Jon I think is his name, who works for the Culver City Police Department. A detective. I spoke to him about five years ago about his father but don't recall where he was then.
Joke Friday...ah yes. Do you know how you can tell you are at a redneck's house? The halloween pumpkin on the front porch has more teeth than his wife.
Thanks for all the great intro's from this site. It's allowed me to start making contact with many friends from those yesteryears. I am still looking for Jerry Parker who worked at Boys Market on Hawthorne Blvd. and his brother Dennis who graduated in 1961.
Some interesting trivia: the class ring of 1961 was the only ring that didn't have to be turned around when you became a senior. It was the same either way. The next graduating class to have that option will be in the year 6009. Right!
See you later.

Message: Geez. Can't even escape CT in the predawn hours at LAX! Snoozing with a bad cup of too hot :) McDonald's coffee I hear "Patty"? Lo and behold it is CT's very own Dewie Storie! I enjoyed the conversation, too Dewie. We ended up on the same flight and caught up on the last 25 years, well sort of. Thanks for blurring the old face Dewie. You are a true gentleman. Ok, now for the Gloria feedback dilemma. Yes, it's true, she doesn't understand any football. This I truly did not know until the late 1980's. Even I understood 1st and 10. V-v-valencia is her jibe at me for a magazine article I wrote about her magnificent, and failed, attempt to become Victory Queen. I thought that was pretty clever. She would be waking up in the bottom bunk and I would be writing quotes for her to make my article look great. Oh well. Embellishment, inc. right SB? Yes Ingrid, she does know that it is "1st and ten", but only because Bobbe Hudspeth corrected her in 1975. She also actually knows how to spell Victory. She has a very funny, but twisted sense of humor. So does John Baker. For me it is hard to discern which of them writes what on the Feedback page. Joseph, why are you still torturing me? And lastly, the Rifleman. How's Mark?

God said, no I didn't, I just said you could live there and to move out. Satan says no I won't and God said then I'll take you to court. Satan says ok but there is no way for you to win. God asked him why? And Satan replied: Because, You don't have any lawyers.

Message: Talking cars, B.J.(Bruce Johnson) thought that we needed some hubcaps for this cool 55. the "cap" of the time was the 57 OLDS FIESTA and bruce had a place to "buy" down on 26th st. well we got down there and "purchased" the caps, but this little old lady just happened to walk by after hearing all this noise, and asked us if we had heard anything unusual? we said "NO MAAM". to make this a little shorter. B.J. says to me the 1st day of our jr. yr, "hey red" (he's the only one who called me that and got away with it, besides MANNY PIZZARO) the "ju'ves" are looking for you! the little old lady had gotten his license number, and the ju'ves had come to his house and retrieved "the caps". they had told him that they were coming to my house to tell my folks what was going on! well, for a solid month, i really didn't want to go home from football practice! RON SEVIER, OTTO PLUM, AND THE COACH HIMSELF couldn't have put any more fear in my body than what B.J. had told me that day. the irony of the whole thing is they never showed up! but it was a heck of a walk home from H.H.S. to 118th place for at least a month, especially if your dad and mom found out! later, el rojo!"

El, Those hub caps make 10 times the noise at night than they did in the daytime.

Gee David, sorry, thought you had gone fishing with LeeRoy! As far as the bionic woman thing I've had my share of surgeries to fix a hip that was never right, thus the titanium parts. Plus a drill bit for good measure, but then my dad being a tool and die maker than seems just right. I had a really nice 67 Mustang Fastback in highschool, raised in the back with glasspacks, I think that's how you spell it! Anyway it was a cool car to cruise in. Unfortunately a couple of classmates got into an accident while my car was parked in front of my house. The drivers side was totaled. It was fixed with bondo, but never the same and I sold it when I got married should have kept the car and thought twice about marriage but that's another long story! Sheree

Message: OK, everybody likes bird jokes, right? Here is my submission.
A burglar breaks into a house in the ritzier area of Hawthorne. He's sure that there's nobody home but he sneaks in, doesn't turn on any lights and heads for where he thinks the valuables are kept.
He hears a voice say, "I can see you! Jesus can see you, too!"
He freezes in his tracks! He doesn't move a muscle!
A couple of minutes go by. The voice repeats "I can see you! Jesus can see you, too!"
He slowly takes out his flashlight, switches it on and looks around the room. He sees a bird cage with a parrot in it. "Did you say that?"
The parrot says again, "I can see you! Jesus can see you, too!"
"Hah! So what?! You're just a parrot!" says the burglar.
"I may be just a parrot", replies the parrot. "But Jesus is a Doberman!"
If that's the winner, I'm going to donate the ice cream prize to LeeRoy.

Betty Crocker
A husband is watching a football game when his wife interrupts, "Honey, could you fix the light in the hallway? It's been flickering for weeks now." He looks at her and says angrily, "Fix the light? Now? Does it look like I have a "GE" logo printed on my forehead? I don't think so. "Well then, could you fix the fridge door? It won't close right." To which he replied, "Fix the fridge door? Does it look like I have "Westinghouse" written on my forehead? I don't think so." "Fine," she says, "Then could you at least fix the steps to the front door? They're about to break." "I'm not a darn carpenter and I don't want to fix the steps," he says. "Does it look like I have "Ace Hardware" written on my forehead? I don't think so. I've had enough of you, I'm going to the bar!!!" So he goes to the bar and drinks for a couple hours. He starts to feel guilty about how he treated his wife, and decides to go home and help out. As he walks into the house, he notices the steps are already fixed. As he enters the house, he sees the hall light is working. As he goes to get a beer, he notices the fridge door is fixed. "Honey. how'd this all get fixed?" She said, "Well, when you left, I sat outside and cried. Just then a nice young man asked me what was wrong, and I told him. He did all the repairs, and all I had to do was either have sex with him or bake him a cake." He said, "So, what kind of cake did you bake him? She replied, "Hellooooooo......Do you see " Betty Crocker" written on my forehead? I don't think so.

Message: How Cheap Are You?
An Englishman, Irishman and Scotsman went for a round of golf and their wives went along as caddies. While walking around the course the English man's wife caught her foot in a rabbit hole, tripped up, and landed in a heap on the ground. Her skirt was over her head revealing that she wasn't wearing any knickers!
The Englishman stormed over and angrily demanded a reason for her state of undress. "Well darling," she explained, "you give me so little allowance that I have to make the odd sacrifice. Usually no one notices."
The Englishman thrusts his hand into his pocket and said, "Here's a ten spot. Go to Mark's and Spencer's and get some knickers."
Two holes further along the Irish Man's wife caught her foot on a molehill, tripped up and landed in a heap on the ground. Again her skirt was up over her head revealing that she wasn't wearing any knickers either! The Irish man was livid and he angrily demanded a reason for her lack of undergarments.
"Well darling," she explained, "you give me so little allowance I cannot afford to buy undergarments." With that the Irish man thrust his hand into his pocket and said, "Here's a five spot. Go to Woolworth's and get some knickers."
Three holes further on, the Scottish man's wife caught her foot on an exposed root, tripped up and landed with her skirt over her head revealing that even she wore no knickers! Her explanation to her irate husband was the same as the others. Simply a lack of allowance.
The Scottish man thrust his hand into his pocket and said, "Here's a comb. At least you can tidy yourself up a bit."

Arty at first refuses, but eventually Ralph convinces him that this is the right thing to do. Ralph even offered Arty a dollar to commit the deed.
So Arty goes to Ralph's house to get the wife. He breaks into the house, finds her, grabs her by the neck and throttles her until she's dead. Unfortunately, the maid was witnessing the event, and Arty had to kill her too. While this was going on, the gardener happened to be peeking into the window, so Arty had to kill him too, but not before the gardener had called the police.

A lawyer and a blonde woman are sitting next to each other on a long flight from LA to NY. The lawyer leans over to her and asks if she would like to play a fun game. The blonde is tired and just wants to take a nap, so she politely declines and rolls over to the window to catch a few winks. The lawyer persists, saying that the game is really easy and a lot of fun. He explains how the game works: "I ask you a question, and if you don't know the answer, you pay me, and visa-versa." Again, she politely declines and tries to get some sleep. The chauvinistic lawyer figures that since his opponent is a blonde he will easily win the match, so he makes another offer: "Okay, how about this "If you don't know the answer you pay me only $5, but if I don't know the answer, I will pay you $50." This catches the blonde's attention and, figuring that there will be no end to this torment unless she plays, she agrees to play the game. The lawyer asks the first question. "What's the distance from the earth to the moon?" The blonde doesn't say a word, reaches in to her purse, pulls out a five-dollar bill, and hands it to the lawyer. Now, it's the blonde's turn. She asks the lawyer, "What goes up a hill with three legs, and comes down with four?" The lawyer looks at her with a puzzled look. He takes out his laptop computer and searches all his references. He taps into the Airphone with his modem and searches the Net and even the Library of Congress. Frustrated, he sends E-mails to all his coworkers and friends he knows. All to no avail. After over an hour, of searching for the answer he finally gives up. He wakes the blonde and hands her $50. The blonde politely takes the $50 and turns away to get back to sleep. The lawyer, who is more than a little frustrated, he wakes the blonde and asks, "Well, so what IS the answer?" Again without a word, the blonde reaches into her purse, hands the lawyer $5, and goes back to sleep.

We picked the guy up and were walking him to our car and he fell down at least three times before we got to our car. This guy was real drunk. When we got to his house he fell another three times just going up to his front door. We knocked on the door and his wife answered. We told her who and what we were doing and when we let the guy go he again fell down. The wife immediately started screaming at us "what did you do with his wheelchair!"

Finally he stopped the bike and told the other, "I can't drive anymore with the air hitting me in my chest." After thinking for a while he decided to put the coat on backwards to block the air from hitting him. So they were driving down the road and they came around this curve and wrecked. The farmer that lived there called the police and told them what happened. The police asked him, "are either of them showing any life signs?" The farmer then said, "well, that one was 'til I turned his head around the right way."

So the traveling salesman is traveling through the suburbs of Lick Skillet, Arkansas when he notices in his rear view mirror a three legged chicken pulling up beside him and passes him doing about 65 MPH. The salesman having passed through Lick Skillet on many occasions has seen a lot of weird things but this tops them all. The chicken makes a left turn into we shall assume LEEROY FELDERRUSTER"S family's driveway. The salesman slows down and he too pulls into the driveway. As he gits [sic] out of his car Leeroy comes up to greet him. "Howdy." says LEEROY
"Howdy" says our protagonist.
"Whacha need?" asks LEEROY.
"Well, sir," our Salesman has seen deliverance so he is being careful and ever so respectful, "I just saw a chicken with three legs run up your driveway."

"Ya sir ya did I knows dat. We raise them."
"You raise them. Why?"
"Well there be such a comotion for dem drumstiks we figured the more drumstiks the bedder."
"Well, the salesman says, "you know you have a point there, everybody I know loves the drumsticks best. So then how do they taste?"
