This comes from 2 math teachers with a combined total of 70 yrs. experience.
It has an indisputable mathematical logic. It also made me Laugh Out Loud.

This is a strictly .... mathematical viewpoint... and it goes like this:

What Makes 100% ?

What does it mean to give MORE than 100%?

Ever wonder about those people who say they are giving more than 100%? We have all been to those meetings where someone wants you to give over 100%.

How about achieving 103%?

What makes up 100% in life?

Here's a little mathematical formula that might help you answer these questions:


Is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.


8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%


11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But ,

1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%


2+21+12+12+19+8+9+20 = 103%

AND, look how far ass kissing will take you.

1+19+19+11+9+19+19+9+14+7 = 118%

So, one can conclude with mathematical certainty, that while Hard work and Knowledge will get you close, and Attitude will get you there. Its the Bullshit and Ass Kissing that will put you over the top.

Now you know why Politicians are where they are!

So this is the last Update of Jokes From Shaf for a bit, as The Chairman has to deal with some medical issues that will put me on the DL for a while. Hopefully, all will go well and a quick recovery will occur so I can get back to fun in the summer. Unfortunately, my trip to Ireland and Scotland with our Traveling Buddies was cancelled, but still have a Dells trip with all the kids and grandkids in July and Vegas in September to look forward to. And Beautiful Bonnie getting good news on her test this week makes the future look bright. Appreciate all of you who have emailed or called to wish me well, I have confidence in the surgeon (he did Bonnie's procedure last year) and the care at Froedtert is top notch. 

So the next Update of Jokes will probably come in later June, hopefully with The Chairman getting a clean bill of health. Until then, keep the jokes coming. I will be checking my email and

appreciate the laughs that Big Al, The Duffer, The Sniper and Mista Tobey provide on a regular basis. Why don't you send  in something too? After all, you get to see a custom made avatar of your own. 

So all of you stay well, and enjoy this week's Update, starting with a look at the News...

A widowed man enters a nursing home. Lonely, he meets a lady and invites her to sit with him in the courtyard and hold hands.

Wheelchairs side by side, night after night, their affection blossoms to the point she lays her hand on his crotch. This happens like clockwork, every night.
One night, she wheels herself to the courtyard. To her horror, he is sitting next to another woman's wheelchair. In tears, she wheels up to him at breakfast and says, "I have to know. What does SHE have that I don't?"

He smiles, "Parkinson's"

Oldie but goodie medical joke...

You can not turn on the News without hearing a story warning you about the danger of Artificial Intelligence (A.I.)...

A business man who owns a company wanted to travel for a business meeting. He was scared that his wife was gonna cheat on him with his employees while he's gone, so he decides to put a machine on his wife's thighs that will cut off anything that comes near it.

He traveled and finally came back, he put all of his employees in a line and asked them to pull down their pants.

He was so disappointed to see that the first man had his penis cut off, so as the second man, and the third man... Until he reached the last man whose penis was still there safe and sound.

He went up to him and told him: "I knew I could trust you! You've always been my favorite employee, and I'm proud of you!"

The employee replied :"Thankth both, no worrieth."

I dated a dental hygienist once...

Whitest teeth I ever came across.

In 1996, Peter Davies was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from Northwestern University.  On a hike through the bush, he came across a young bull elephant standing with one leg raised in the air.  The elephant seemed distressed, so Peter approached it very carefully.  He got down on one knee and inspected the elephant's foot and found a large piece of wood deeply embedded in it.   

As carefully and as gently as he could, Peter worked the wood out with his hunting knife, after which the elephant gingerly put down its foot. The elephant turned to face the man, and with a rather curious look on its face, stared at him for several tense moments.  

Peter stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually the elephant trumpeted loudly, turned, and walked away.

Peter never forgot that elephant or the events of that day.  

Twenty years later, Peter was walking through the Chicago Zoo with his teenaged son.

As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to near where Peter and his son Cameron were standing.  The large bull elephant stared at Peter, lifted its front foot off the ground, then put it down.

The elephant did that several times then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at the man.  

Remembering the encounter in 1996, Peter couldn't help wondering if this was the same elephant.

Peter summoned up his courage, slipped past the "WARNING-DO NOT ENTER" sign, climbed over the railing and made his way into the enclosure. He walked right up to the elephant and stared back in wonder.

The elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Peter's legs and slammed his stupid ass against the railing, killing him instantly.

So, this probably…wasn't the same elephant.
