    If orange juice is made from oranges, and apple pie is made from apples--what are dog biscuits made from?
    A young woman, a bit plain and homely and certainly quite shy was confiding in a friend that that she didn't think she would ever find her soul mate.

    Her friend told her that she knew of a fortune teller and potion maker down in the quarters who had done miracles for another friend and that she would be glad to take her.

    Excited, blushing and with heart rapidly beating, the poor young girl agreed and that Saturday morning found herself on a bus to a very seedy side of town.

    As the bus passed junkyards, second-hand stores and pawn shops, and street corners with tough looking young men loitering about, she became more and more anxious.

    When the bus stopped in a block of bombed out buildings with broken windows covered with plywood it was all she could do to get off with her friend. Were it not for her desperation, she would have continued on. But, life without a soul-mate seemed worse to her than any fate she would encounter on this lonely, dismal, dead-end street.

    Across the street she saw a hand drawn sign nailed next to an open stairwell on a building side:


    She and her friend crossed the street and ascended the stairs. Each flight becoming creakier, darker and more threatening with each step.

    Finally they arrived on the fourth floor in front of a grimy door cracked open and with a handwritten sign, Mdme X - Enter here.

    As they stepped into the room they encountered a large woman, at least 6'5" and 350 pounds in a floral house dress and a yellow bandana wrapped around her large head framing her round face. The woman was wildy laughing at the top of her lungs with several gold teeth flashing as the girls came into the room.

    The young girl seeking the soul mate stepped quickly and resolutely up to the loudly laughing woman and slapped her across the face.

    Her companion screamed, "My God, why did you do that?"

    The girl replied, "My mother taught me I should always strike a happy medium".

    Far away in the tropical waters of the Caribbean, two prawns were swimming around in the sea - one called Justin and the other called Christian.

    The prawns were constantly being harassed and threatened by sharks that inhabited the area. Finally one day Justin said to Christian, "I'm fed up with being a prawn, I wish I was a shark, then I wouldn't have any worries about being eaten."

    A large mysterious cod appeared and said, "Your wish is granted", and lo and behold, Justin turned into a shark. Horrified, Christian immediately swam away, afraid of being eaten by his old mate.

    Time passed (as it invariably does) and Justin found life as a shark boring and lonely. All his old mates simply swam away whenever he came close to them. Justin didn't realise that his new menacing appearance was the cause of his sad plight.

    While swimming alone one day he saw the mysterious cod again and he thought perhaps the mysterious fish could change him back into a prawn.

    He approached the cod and begged to be changed back, and lo and behold,he found himself turned back into a prawn. With tears of joy in his tiny little eyes Justin swam back to his friends and bought them all a cocktail.

    Looking around the gathering at the reef he realised he couldn't see his old pal.

    "Where's Christian?" he asked. "He's at home, still distraught that his best friend changed sides to the enemy and became a shark", came the reply.

    Eager to put things right again and end the mutual pain and torture, he set off to Christian's abode. As he opened the coral gate memories came flooding back. He banged on the door and shouted, "It's me, Justin, your old friend, come out and see me again"

    Christian replied, "No way man, you'll eat me. You're now a shark,the enemy, and I'll not be tricked into being your dinner. " Justin cried back "No, I'm not. That was the old me.

    I've changed."........
    "I've found Cod. I'm a prawn again Christian".

        Aaaarrrgghh! My eyes, my eyes!

        OK, just for that here's an old evergreen with many variations:

        Some scientists discovered a way to make porposes live forever. It involved feeding them the eggs of young sea gulls. They found that the best birds were from the
        Great Salt Lake.

        So they got permission from the Great Salt Lake Authority, filled a big truck with young Salt Lake sea gulls, and headed home.

        They had to drive past the city zoo, where a lion had just escaped. The lion ran right in front of the truck and got run over. Then the driver of the truck was cited by the police for transporting young gulls across a strayed lion for immortal porpoises.

            After Quasimodo's death, the bishop of the Cathedral of Notre Dame sent word through the streets of Paris that a new bell ringer was needed.

            The bishop decided that he would conduct the interviews personally and went up into the belfry to begin the screening process.

            After observing several applicants demonstrate their skills, he had decided to call it a day. Just then, an armless man approached him and announced that he was there to apply for the bell ringer's job.

            The bishop was incredulous. "You have no arms!" No matter," said the man. "Observe!" And he began striking the bells with his face, producing a beautiful melody on the carillon.

            The bishop listened in astonishment; convinced he had finally found a replacement for Quasimodo.

            But suddenly, rushing forward to strike the bell, the Armless man tripped and plunged headlong out of the belfry window to his death in the street below. The stunned bishop rushed down two hundred and ninety five church steps, when he reached the street, a crowd had gathered around the fallen figure, drawn by the beautiful music they had heard only moments b

            As they silently parted to let the bishop through, one of them asked, "Bishop, who was this man?". I don't know his name," the bishop sadly replied, "but his face rings a bell"

            WAIT! There's more

            The following day, despite the sadness that weighed heavily on his heart due to the unfortunate death of the armless ampanologist, the bishop continued his interviews for the bell ringer of Notre Dame.

            The first man to approach him said, "Your Excellency, I am the brother of the poor armless wretch that fell to his death from this very belfry yesterday. I pray that you honour his life by allowing me to replace him in this duty."

            The bishop agreed to give the man an audition, and, as the armless man's brother stooped to pick up a mallet to strike the first bell, he groaned, clutched at his chest, twirled around, and died on the spot.

            Two monks, hearing the bishop's cries of grief at this second tragedy, rushed up the stairs to his side. "What has happened? Who is this man?" the first monk asked breathlessly.

            "I don't know his name," sighed the distraught bishop, "but he's a dead ringer for his brother."

                      A thief in Paris planned to steal some paintings from the Louvre. After
                      carefully planning, he got past security, stole the paintings and made
                      it safely to his van.

                      However, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of
                      gas. When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such
                      an obvious error, he replied:
                      "Monsieur, that's the reason I stole the paintings. I had no Monet to
                      buy Degas to make the Van Gogh."

He went back and begged the friars to close. They ignored him. So, the rival florist hired Hugh MacTaggart, the roughest and most vicious thug in town to "persuade" them to close. Hugh beat up the friars and trashed their store, saying he'd be back if they didn't close up shop. Terrified, they did so, thereby proving that only Hugh can prevent florist friars.

                            A few days ago I was having some work done at my local garage. A blonde came in and asked for a seven-hundred-ten. We all looked at each other and another customer asked, "What is a seven-hundred-ten?" She replied, "You know, the little piece in the middle of the engine, I have lost it and need a new one. "She replied that she did not know exactly what it was, but this piece had always been there. The mechanic gave her a piece of paper and a pen and asked her to draw what the piece looked like. She drew a circle and in the middle of it wrote 710. He then took her over to another car which had its hood up and asked "is there a 710 on this car?" She pointed and said, "Of course, it's right there." If you' re not sure what a 710 is, Click Here:
