The Pope on a Boat

a big shout-out to Ida from sapphoqnfriends

On a tour of New Zealand, the Pope took a couple of days off to visit the ocean

for some sightseeing.

He was cruising along the beach at the Whakatane Heads in his car when

there was a frantic commotion just off the shore. A helpless man wearing

a green and gold Aussie rugby jersey and hat was struggling frantically to

free himself from the jaws of a 5-metre shark. As the Pope watched,

Horrified, a Waka (Canoe) came cruzin up with two men wearing black &

white jerseys.

Kora quickly chucked a harpoon into the shark`s side. Hohepa reached out

and pulled the mauled, bleeding and semi-conscious Aussie from the water.

Then, using long clubs, Kora and Hohepa beat the shark to death and

hauled it into the boat.

Immediately the Pope shouted and summoned them to the beach. "I give you

my blessing for your brave actions," he told them. "I heard that there was

some bitter hatred between New Zealand and Australia, but now I have seen

with my own eyes that is not true."

As the Pope drove off, Kora asked Hohepa "Who the bloody hell was that

bro?" "That was the Pope mate," Hohepa replied. "He's in direct contact

with God bro, and has access to all of God's wisdom."

"Well," Kora said "he may have access to God's wisdom but the prick don't

know Jack Sh*t about shark fishing......... Is the bait holding up okay

or do we need to get another Aussie?"

with a big shout out to RHINO:

Three aspiring psychiatrists who had gotten their pre-med degrees at three different universities were attending their first class in .

"Just to establish some parameters" said the professor to the student from SUNY-Albany, "What is the opposite of joy?"
"Sadness," said the student.

And the opposite of depression?" he asked the student from Tufts.
"Elation", said the student.

"And you," he said to the student from Oklahoma State University, "How about the opposite of woe?"
The student replied, "Sir, I believe that would be giddy up."


with a big shout-out to Vixen:

The Pope took a couple of days off to visit the mountains of Alaska for some sight-seeing. He was cruising along the campground in the Pope-mobile when there was a frantic commotion just at the edge of the woods.

A helpless Democrat, wearing sandals, shorts, a "Save the Whales" hat, and a "To Hell with Bush" T-shirt, was screaming while struggling frantically, thrashing around trying to free himself from the grasp of a 10 foot grizzly bear.

As the Pope watched horrified, a group of Republican loggers came racing up. One quickly fired a .44 magnum into the bear's chest.

The other two reached up and pulled the bleeding, semiconscious Democrat from the bear's grasp. Then using long clubs, the three loggers finished off the bear and two of them threw it onto the bed of their truck while the third tenderly placed the injured Democrat in the back seat.

As they prepared to leave, the Pope summoned them all to come over.

"I give you my blessing for your brave actions!" he told them. "I heard there was a bitter hatred between Republican loggers and Democratic environmental activists, but now I've seen with my own eyes that this is just not true."

As the Pope drove off, one of the loggers asked his buddies, "Who was that guy?"
"It was the Pope," another replied. "He's in direct contact with heaven and has access to all wisdom."

"Well," the logger said, "he may have access to all wisdom but he sure don't know squat about bear hunting! Is the bait holding up, or do we need to go back to Massachusetts and get another one?"

4. What were you doing 15 minutes ago? Checking my e-mail.

5. Are you any good at math? Yes but in a funny way. I am good at solving geometry problems for example but never did understand the why behind having to write out each step in proofs. To me, having to write out each step is stupid.

6. What were you doing last night? Friday night is date night. Husband and I date each other.

7. Do you have any famous ancestors? Nope.

8. Have you ever burped in front of the opposite sex? Yeah. So what? This questionnaire was written by a hetero-ecentric.

9. Do you know the words to the song on your MySpace page? Don't got MySpace. I'm too old.

11. How many different beverages have you drunk today? Three. Diet coke, coffee and water.

12. What's one thing you wish to change about yourself? Wish to change: organization non-skills, housework routines, and the ability to translate my vision and creativity into making a living. Uh, that's three. Wishing to change vs. wanting to do the work to change...two different things. I lack motivation and development of options. I keep striving.
I have gotten real good at making charts of my imaginary housework routines.

13. What do you wish for? I wish for truthful politicians.

14. Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach? Yup. In a witch sort of way I have done things like that.

15. What's the most painful dental procedure you've had? My mother didn't believe in the use of any numbing agents when the dentist worked on [my] teeth. Anything done in childhood was fairly painful-- from the tooth with the too long roots that had to be extracted to cavities.

16. What is outside your back door? When weeds grow in garden space, they become wildflowers.

17. Any plans for Friday night? Friday night is date night.

18. Do you like music? Yup.

27. When was the last time you spoke in front of a large group? A few weeks ago I think.

28. What kind of winter coat do you have? Several. This question does not excite me.

29. What does your favorite shirt look like? I like old washed out comfortable teeshirts and jeans. I don't wear anything else ever unless I am forced to.

30. Can you tie a cherry stem in a knot with your tongue? This is a stupid question and I am not answering it on the grounds that some readers will assume some sort of dirty sexual innuendos and whatever about me and I'm not having it because I am totally pure and all of that and my husband seems to think that sucking tennis balls through a garden hose is a better skill to have and besides tieing a cherry stem in a knot with my tongue wouldn't even get me a job with the circus and how dare you assume that we all have tongues you hetero-centric question writer you I demand that your personnel office provide you with inservices on sensitivity to the...............


Picture is one I took and doctored. That is my older kitty in it.
