Committee assignments are being given out, and nutcases like Marjorie Taylor Greene are seemingly forgiven for the statements that the January 6 protesters should have been armed, and that the Jews had lasers that started wildfires, and that Democrats should be shot....she now has gotten the Homeland Security and Oversight Committee, both important and prestigious assignments...

And in New Mexico, a Trump election denier was arrested for trying to shoot Democrats...

In Missouri, they continue to try and push laws requiring women to cover their shoulders in the state assembly...

​This one is appropriate for the season...

February seems to be the time to  leave your cold weather home for sunnier places. The Sniper is in Hawaii, The Czar and Platinum Tarks in Florida, The Dim Bulb, Bert and Billy Bong in the California desert and The Chairman and Beautiful Bonnie in Manhattan Beach, CA. For us it will be a 4 day drive as we have to take Murphy the Dog with us, but what the hell, we are both retired and have plenty of time. But for you, reader of Jokes, you will have to endure a month without your weekly dose of mirth and merriment. But keep sending those jokes to me so I will have a backlog to use in March.


Lots of decisions for our local sports teams, as the Bucks have only until February 9 to trade and improve the roster. I predict they will make some significant adjustments, as their offense is too limited as it is. Certainly Middleton coming back will help, but Grayson Allen is not good enough to be a starting shooting guard. They need more offensive threats to take the pressure off Giannis. And the Packers face the big question of what to do with Rodgers. I think it is finally time to take the draft picks and move him, unless you think Love really is not good enough.


Thankfully, nothing to report in Sick Bay this week, let's keep it that way while I am gone.


So without any further ado, let's take a look at what has happened this week in the News...

Just like me, this one is crude but funny...

And Platinum Tarks VikQueens blew their home field advantage and lost to the Giants...

Ordering a Pizza in 2023


CALLER:
Is this Pizza Hut?

GOOGLE:
No sir, it's Google Pizza.

CALLER:
I must have dialed a wrong number, sorry.

GOOGLE:
No sir, Google bought Pizza Hut last month.

CALLER:
OK. I would like to order a pizza.

GOOGLE:
Do you want your usual, sir?

CALLER:
My usual? You know me?

GOOGLE:
According to our caller ID data sheet, the last 12 times you called you ordered an extra-large pizza with three cheeses, sausage, pepperoni, mushrooms and meatballs on a thick crust.

CALLER:
Super! That’s what I’ll have.

GOOGLE:
May I suggest that this time you order a pizza with ricotta, arugula, sun-dried tomatoes and olives on a whole wheat gluten-free thin crust?

CALLER:
What? I don’t want a vegetarian pizza!

GOOGLE:
Your cholesterol is not good, sir.

CALLER:
How the hell do you know that?

GOOGLE:
Well, we cross-referenced your home phone number with your medical records. We have the result of your blood tests for the last 7 years.

CALLER:
Okay, but I do not want your rotten vegetarian pizza! I already take medication for my cholesterol.

GOOGLE:
Excuse me sir, but you have not taken your medication regularly. According to our database, you purchased only a box of 30 cholesterol tablets once at CVS 4 months ago.

CALLER:
I bought more from another Pharmacy.

GOOGLE:
That doesn’t show on your credit card statement.

CALLER:
I paid in cash.

GOOGLE:
But you did not withdraw enough cash according to your bank statement.

CALLER:
I have other sources of cash.

GOOGLE:
That doesn’t show on your latest tax returns, unless you bought them using an undeclared income source, which is against the law!

CALLER:
WHAT THE HELL!

GOOGLE:
I'm sorry sir, we use such information only with the sole intention of helping you.

CALLER:
Enough already! I'm sick to death of Google, Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp and all the others. I'm going to an island without the internet, TV, where there is no phone service and no one to watch me or spy on me.

GOOGLE:

I understand sir, but you need to renew your passport first. It expired 6 weeks ago...

But that is just the tip of the iceberg of the Republican agenda. Next came the idea to ban gas stoves on the idea that it had some relationship to childhood asthma...

Thanks to Fox News for keeping the venom going, pitting Republican against Democrat, black against white, rich against poor...

In Economic News, inflation has come down a bit, but prices at the gas pump and in the supermarket remain high, especially when it comes to the cost of eggs, where a dozen eggs which cost $1.79 last year are now $4.25...

What about the liar, George Santos? No action on that...

Well, lately I don't think the Packers have been any better, maybe it is because the off season workouts that Aaron Rodgers is doing are not quite what the Packers were looking for...

A lesbian and her girlfriend walk into a bar

They get a couple drinks in and another patron notices the woman is very buff.

He asks her how much she can lift and with a drunken grin she says "Watch this!!" before stumbling out of her chair and picking up her girlfriend bridal style. She holds her there for a second, and the man is very impressed, but very quickly she drops her girlfriend and vomits into a trash can.

The bartender rushes over from the other side of the bar and says "Damn, I should have warned you, she's a regular. She's pretty strong, but she can't hold her licker."

Three elderly men are at the doctor for a memory test. The doctor says to the first man, "What is three times three?" "274" was his reply.

The doctor says to the second man, "It's your turn. What is three times three?" "Tuesday", replies the second man.

The doctor says to the third man, "Okay, your turn. What's three times three"? "Nine", says the third man. "That's great!" says the doctor. "How did you get that"?

"Simple," says the third man. "I subtracted 274 from Tuesday."

Another crude one...

A Farmer's Marriage


A farmer and his wife are having some issues with their marriage. One day, the farmer takes a little baby sheep inside his house and finds his wife.

"Just so you know, this is the pig I have sex with when you're not around," the farmer says.

"What are you, stupid?" his wife asks. "That's a sheep, not a pig."

"Shut up, I wasn't talking to you."

In more local State News, Ron DeSantis wants to permanently ban any Covid mask or vaccination potential as well as banning  AP classes in Afro-American Studies, which he does not think is a legitimate course of education...

And speaking of being a senior...

Always room for one from                                                                                                        ...

The furor over the misplaced secret documents by Trump and Biden continues, with each side trying to say the the other was more nefarious...

The Cowboys defeated Tom Brady and the Bucs, despite missing a couple of extra points...

A man finds a genie lamp, rubs it and poof a Genie appears.

Genie: I have the power to grant you 3 wishes but keep in mind, whatever you wish, your mother-in-law will receive two-fold…

Man: Ok. My first wish is for 1 billion dollars.

Genie: Your wish is granted, but keep in mind that your mother-in-law will receive 2 billion dollars.

Man: That’s fine. My second wish is for a 20,000sq ft mansion in the Hamptons.

Genie: Your wish is granted, but keep in mind that your mother-in-law will receive a 40,000sq ft mansion in the Hamptons.

Man: That’s fine.

Genie: Ok. What is your third wish?

Man: I want you to beat me half to death.

Things to ponder as you age . . .


         The inventor of the treadmill died at the age of 54 
         The originator of gymnastics died at the age of 57 
         The past world bodybuilding champion died at the age of 41 
         The best soccer player in history, Maradona, died at the age of 60 

         And then . . .
         KFC inventor died at 94 
         Inventor of Nutella brand died at the age of 88 
         Cigarette maker Winston died at the age of 102 
         The inventor of opium died at the age of 116 in an earthquake 
         Hennessy cognac, Irish inventor died at 98 

         How did doctors come to the conclusion that exercise prolongs life?
         The rabbit is always jumping, but it lives for only 2 years.
         The turtle that doesn’t exercise at all, lives 400 years.

         So . . .
         Have a drink,
         Take a nap,
         And if you wake up, have bacon and eggs.

This made me laugh...

Too tough for me...
