Stress Diet
One Question Too Many



Wednesday, June 30, 1999

Stress Diet

This diet is designed to help you cope with the stress that builds up during the day.

1/2 Grapefruit
1 Slice Whole Wheat Toast - Dry
8 oz Skim Milk

4 oz Lean Broiled Chicken Breast
1 cup Steamed Spinach
1 cup Herb Tea
1 Oreo Cookie

Rest of the Oreos in the Package
2 Pints of Rocky Road Ice Cream
1 Jar Hot Fudge Sauce
Nuts, Cherries, Whipped Cream

2 Loaves Garlic Bread with Cheese
Large Sausage, Mushroom and Cheese Pizza
4 Cans or 1 Large Pitcher of Beer
3 Milky Way or Snickers Candy Bars

Entire Frozen Cheesecake eaten directly from freezer

1.  If you eat something and no-one sees you eat it, it has no calories.

2.  If you drink a diet soda with a candy bar, the calories in the candy bar are canceled out by the diet soda.

3.  When you eat with someone else, calories don't count if you don't eat more than they do.

4.  Food used for medicinal purposes NEVER count, such as hot chocolate,  brandy toast and Sara Lee Cheesecake.

5.  If you fatten up everyone else around you, you look thinner.

6.  Cookie pieces contain no calories.  The process of baking causes calorie leakage.

7.  Things licked off knives and spoons have no calories if you are in the process of preparing something.
      Ex.:  Peanut Butter on a knife making a sandwich; ice cream on a spoon making a sundae.

8.  Foods that have the same color have the same number of calories.
     Ex:  Spinach & Pistachio ice cream,  Mushrooms & White Chocolate.

NOTE:  Chocolate is a universal color and may be substituted for any other food color.

One Question Too Many

A defense attorney was cross-examining a police officer during a felony trial -- it went like this:

Q: Officer, did you see my client fleeing the scene?
A: No sir, but I subsequently observed a person matching the description of the offender running several blocks away.

Q: Officer, who provided this description?
A: The officer who responded to the scene.

Q: A fellow officer provided the description of this so-called offender. Do you trust your fellow officers?
A: Yes sir, with my life.

Q: With your life? Let me ask you this then officer--do you have a locker room in the police station--a room where you change your clothes in preparation for your daily duties?
A: Yes sir, we do.

Q: And do you have a locker in that room?
A: Yes sir, I do.

Q: And do you have a lock on your locker?
A: Yes sir.

Q: Now why is it, officer, if you trust your fellow officers with your life, that you find it necessary to lock your locker in a room you share with those officers?
A: You see sir, we share the building with a court complex, and sometimes defense attorneys have been known to walk through that room.

The Hook

An able-bodied seaman meets a pirate in a bar, and they take turns recounting  their adventures at sea. Noting the pirate's peg-leg, hook,  and eye patch the  seaman asks, "So, how did you end up with the peg-leg?"
The pirate replies, "We was caught in a monster storm off the cape  and a giant wave swept me overboard. Just as they were pullin' me out a school of  sharks appeared and one of 'em bit me leg off".
"Blimey!" said the seaman. "What about the hook"?
"Ahhhh...", mused the pirate, "We were boardin' a trader ship pistols   blastin' and swords swinging' this way and that. In the fracas me hand got   chopped off."
"Zounds!",  remarked the seaman. "And how came ye by the eye patch?"
"A seagull droppin' fell into me eye," answered the pirate.
"You lost your eye to a seagull dropping?" the sailor asked incredulously.
"Well..." said the pirate, "..it was me first day with the hook.."

Making An Impression

A young executive was leaving the office at 6pm when he found the CEO standing in front of the company shredder with a piece of paper in hand.
"Listen," said the CEO, "this is very important, and my secretary's already left.  Can you make this thing work?"
"Certainly," said the young executive.  He turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button.
"Excellent, excellent!" said the CEO as his paper disappeared inside the machine.  "I'll just need one copy."

Mud Hole

A motorist, after being bogged down in a hole on a muddy road, paid a passing farmer twenty-five dollars to pull him out with his tractor.
After he was back on dry ground, the man said "At those prices, I would think you'd be pulling people out of the mud night and day".
"Can't" said the farmer, "At night, I haul water for the hole."

No Honor Among Thieves

Johnson was charged with stealing a Mercedes Benz, and after a long trial, the jury acquitted him. Later that day Johnson came back to the judge who had presided at the hearing.
"Your honor," he said, "I wanna get out a warrant for that dirty lawyer of mine."
"Why ?" asked the judge. "He won your aquittal. What do you want to have him arrested for?"
"Well, your honor," replied Johnson, "I didn't have the money to pay his fee, so he went and took the car I stole."

Breaking Down

Her car breaks down on the Interstate one day, so the driver eases it over  onto the shoulder. She carefully steps out of the car and opens the trunk.  Out jump two men in  trench coats, who walk to the rear of the vehicle where they stand facing oncoming traffic and begin  opening their coats and exposing themselves to approaching drivers.  Not surprisingly, one of the   worst pileups in history of this highway occurs.  It's not very long before a police car shows up. The  cop, clearly enraged, runs toward the driver of the disabled vehicle yelling, "What the hell is going  on here?" 
"My car broke down," says the lady, calmly. 
"Well, what are these perverts doing here by  the road?" screams the cop.  
"Those are my emergency flashers!" replied the woman!

Special Occasions
- Author Unknown

This is more embarrassing for my mother than for me because I wasn't quite four years old when it happened. My mother taught me to read when I was 3 years old (her first mistake). One day I was in the bathroom and noticed one of the cabinet door was ajar.  I read the box in the cabinet. I then asked my mother why she was keeping napkins in the bathroom. Didn't they belong in the kitchen? Not wanting to burden me with unnecessary facts she told me that those were for special occasions.

Now fast forward a few months.  It's Thanksgiving Day, and my folks are leaving to pick up the pastor and his wife for Dinner.  Mom had assignments for all of us while they were gone.  Mine was to set the table.  You guessed it!  When they returned, the pastor came in first and immediately burst into laughter.  Next came his wife who gasped, then began giggling.  Next came my father, who roared with laughter. Then came mom, who almost died of embarrassment when she saw each place setting on the table with, you guessed it,  a "special occasion" napkin at each plate, with the fork carefully arranged on top.  I had even tucked the little tails in so they didn't hang off the edge.  My mother asked me why I used these and, of course, my response sent the other adults into further fits of laughter.
"But Mom, you SAID they were for special occasions!!

Speeding Up

A man decided that he was going to ride a 10 speed bike from Phoenix to Flagstaff. He got as far as Black Canyon City before the mountains just became too much and he could go no farther. He stuck his thumb out but after 3 hours, hadn't gotten a single person to stop. Finally a guy in a Corvette pulled over and offered him a ride. Of course, the bike wouldn't fit in the car.
The owner of the Corvette found a piece of rope lying by the highway and tied it to his bumper. He tied the other end to the bike and told the man that if he got to going to fast, to honk the horn on his bike and that he would slow down.
Everything went fine for the first 30 miles. Suddenly, another Corvette blew past them. Not to be outdone, the Corvette pulling the bike took off after the other. A short distance down the road, the Corvettes, both going well over 120 mph, blew through a speed trap.
The police officer noted the speeds from his radar gun and radioed to the other officer that he had 2 Corvettes headed his way at over 120 mph. He then relayed, "and your not going to believe this, there's a guy on a 10 speed bike honking to pass."

Growing Old

Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.

Insanity is my only means of relaxation.

Forget the health food.  I need all the  preservatives I can get.

You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you once got from a roller coaster.

Perhaps the reason why women over  fifty don't have babies: They would put them down somewhere and forget where they left them.

One of life's mysteries is how a two pound box of candy can make a person gain five pounds.

My mind not only wanders, sometimes it leaves completely.

Every time I think about exercise, I lie down until the thought goes away.

God put me on earth to accomplish a certain number of things. Right now I am so far behind, I will live forever.

It's frustrating when you know all the answers, but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.

I finally got my head together, and my body fell apart.

There cannot be a crisis this week; my schedule is already full.

Time may be a great healer, but it's also a lousy beautician.

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight, because by then your body and your fat are really good friends.

Age doesn't always bring wisdom.  Sometimes age comes alone.

Just when I was getting used to yesterday, along came today.

Sometimes I think I understand everything, then I regain consciousness.

I don't mind the rat race, but I could do with a little more cheese.

Amazing!  You just hang something in your  closet for a while, and it shrinks two sizes.

It is bad to suppress laughter; it goes back down and spreads to your hips.

Freedom of the press means no-iron clothes.

Inside some of us is a thin person struggling to get out, but they can usually be sedated with a few pieces of chocolate cake.

Seen it all, done it all, can't remember most of it.

5. Your Mother and I are going away for the weekend ... you might want to consider throwing a party.

6. I thought you had to be in relatively good physical condition to be a police officer.

7. You're not gonna check the trunk, are you?

10. Do you know why you pulled me over? Okay, just so one of us does.

11. I was trying to keep up with traffic. Yes, I know there are no other cars around. That's how far ahead of me they are.

12. When the Officer says "Gee Son....Your eyes look red, have you been drinking?" You probably shouldn't respond with, "Gee Officer your eyes look glazed, have you been eating doughnuts?"

A Load Off My Mind

A clergyman, walking down a country lane, sees a young farmer struggling to load hay back onto a cart after it had fallen off.
"You look hot, my son," said the cleric. "Why don't you rest a moment, and I'll give you a hand."
"No thanks," said the young man. "My father wouldn't like it."
"Don't be silly," the minister said. "Everyone is entitled to a break. Come and have a drink of water."
Again the young man protested that his father would be upset. Losing his patience, the clergyman said, "Your father must be a real slave driver. Tell me where I can find him and I'll give him a piece of my mind!"
"Well," replied the young farmer, "he's under the load of hay."

"No problem," the tired traveler assured him. "I'll take it." The next morning Willard came down to breakfast bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
"How'd you sleep?" asked the manager.
"Never better."
The manager was impressed. "No problem with the other guy snoring, then?"
"Nope, I shut him up in no time" said Willard.
"How'd you manage that?" asked the manager.
"He was already in bed, snoring away, when I came in the room," Willard explained. "I went over, gave him a kiss on the cheek, said, 'Goodnight, cutie,' and he sat bolt upright all night watching me like a hawk!"

Don't Make a Nurse Angry

A big shot business man had to spend a couple of days in the hospital. He was a royal pain to the nurses because he bossed them around just like he did his employees.
None of the hospital staff wanted to have anything to do with him. The head nurse was the only one who could stand up to him. She came into his room and announced,  "I have to take your temperature."
After complaining for several minutes, he finally settled down, crossed his arms and opened his mouth.
"No, I'm sorry", the nurse stated, "but for this reading, I cannot use an oral thermometer." This started another round of complaining, but eventually he rolled over and bared his rear end.
After feeling the nurse insert the thermometer, he heard her announce, "I have to get something. Now you stay JUST LIKE THAT until I get back!"
She leaves the door to his room open on her way out. He curses under his breath as he hears people walking past his door laughing. After almost an hour, the man's doctor comes into the room.
"What's going on here?" asked the doctor.
Angrily, the man answers, "What's the matter, Doc? Haven't you ever seen someone having their temperature taken?"
After a pause, the doctor confesses, "Well, no. I guess I haven't. Not with a carnation anyway."

The Unhappy Husband

Tired of constantly being broke, and stuck in an unhappy marriage, a young husband decided to solve both problems by taking out a large insurance policy on his wife (with himself as the beneficiary), and arranging to have her killed.
A "friend of a friend" put him in touch with an underworld figure, who went by the name of "Artie". Artie explained to  the husband that his going price for snuffing out a spouse was $5,000.
The husband said he was willing to pay that amount, but that he wouldn't have any cash on hand until he could collect his wife's  insurance money.
Artie insisted on being paid SOMETHING up front. The man  opened up his wallet, displaying the single dollar bill that rested  inside. Artie sighed, rolled his eyes, and reluctantly agreed to  accept the dollar as down payment for the dirty deed.
A few days later, Artie followed the man's wife to the  local Safeway grocery store. There, he surprised her in the produce department, and proceeded to strangle her with his gloved hands. As the poor unsuspecting woman drew her last breath and slumped to the floor, the manager of the produce department stumbled unexpectedly onto the scene. Unwilling to leave any witnesses behind, Artie had no choice but to strangle the produce manager as well.
Unknown to Artie, the entire proceedings were captured  by hidden cameras and observed by the store's security guard,  who immediately called the police. Artie was caught and arrested  before he could leave the store. Under intense questioning at   the police station, Artie revealed the sordid plan, including his  financial arrangements with the hapless husband.

  And that is why, the next day in the  newspaper, the headline declared:

Painfully True

The residents of Silicon Valley are more confused than usual after a billboard campaign by the National Multiple Sclerosis Society of America used this line in an ad slogan.
"MS: It's not a software company."
Exploiting the fame of a certain company to draw attention to an altogether worthier cause. Requests to comment on the campaign have been met by a surly silence by Microsoft which doesn' t relish the association of ideas, but is painfully aware that it can' t afford to appear insensitive over such an issue.
Seasoned IT professionals will have no trouble telling the two MS's apart:
One is a debilitating and surprisingly widespread affliction that renders the sufferer barely able to perform the simplest task.
The other is a disease.

Scientific Beer Study

Yesterday, scientists for the USDA suggested that men should take a look at their beer consumption, considering the results of a recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones in beer.
The theory is that drinking beer makes men turn into women.  
To test the finding, 100 men were fed 6 pints of beer each.  It was  then observed that 100% of the men gained weight, talked excessively without making sense, became overly emotional, couldn't drive, failed to think rationally, argued over nothing, and refused to apologize when wrong.  
No further testing is planned

Thoughts to Ponder

Why are a wise man and a wise guy opposites?

Why do overlook and oversee mean opposite things?

If horrific means to make horrible, does terrific mean to make terrible?

Why isn't 11 pronounced onety one?

Do infants enjoy infancy as much as adults enjoy adultery?

Why is a person who plays the piano called a pianist, but a person who drives a race car not called a racist?

If a pig loses its voice, is it disgruntled?

Why do women wear evening gowns to nightclubs?  Shouldn't they be wearing  night gowns?

If love is blind, why is lingerie so popular?

When someone asks you, "A penny for your thoughts," and you put your two cents in, what happens to the other penny?

Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

Why do croutons come in airtight packages?  It's just stale bread to begin with.

If you mixed vodka with orange juice and milk of magnesia, would you get a Philips Screwdriver?

Why do we say something is out of whack?  What is a "whack"?

"I am" is reportedly the shortest sentence in the English language. Could it be that "I do" is the longest sentence?

If lawyers are disbarred and clergymen defrocked, doesn't it follow that electricians can be delighted, musicians denoted, cowboys deranged, models deposed, tree surgeons debarked and dry cleaners depressed?

A football coach walked into the locker room before a game, looked over to his star player and said, "I'm not supposed to let you play since you failed math, but we need you in there. So, what I have to do is ask you a math question, and if you get it right, you can play."
The player agreed, and the coach looked into his eyes intently and asks, "Okay, now concentrate hard and tell me the answer to this. What is two plus two?"
The player thought for a moment and then he answered, "4?" "Did you say 4?" the coach exclaimed.
All the other players on the team immediately began screaming,..."Come on coach, give him another chance!"

The Drifter

In 1854, a drifter rode into a New Mexico town and stopped at a saloon for a drink. Unfortunately, the locals always had a habit of picking on drifters. When he finished his drink, he found his horse had been stolen.
He goes back into the bar, handily flips his gun into the air, catches it above his head without even looking and fires a shot into the ceiling.
"WHICH ONE OF YOU SIDEWINDERS STOLE MY HOSS?" he yelled with surprising forcefulness.
No one answered.
Some of the locals shifted restlessly. He had another beer, walked outside, and his horse is back!
He saddles-up and starts to ride out of town. The bartender wanders out of the bar and asks, "Say partner, before you go... what happened in Texas?"
The cowboy turned back and said, "I had to walk home."

Still Learning

A young man hired by a supermarket reported for his first day of work. The manager greeted him with a warm handshake and a smile, gave him a broom and said, "Your first job will be to sweep out the store."
"But I'm a college graduate," the young man replied indignantly.
"Oh, I'm sorry. I didn't know that," said the manager. "Here, give me the broom - I'll show you how."

Walking on Water

An avid duck hunter was in the market for a new bird dog. His search ended when he found a dog that could actually walk on water to retrieve a duck. Shocked by his find, he was sure none of his friends would ever believe him.
He decided to try to break the news to a friend of his, a pessimist by nature, and invited him to hunt with him and his new dog.
As they waited by the shore, a flock of ducks flew by.  they fired, and a duck fell. The dog responded and jumped into the water. The dog, however, did not sink but instead walked across the water to retrieve the bird, never getting more than his paws wet.
The friend saw everything but did not say a single word.
On the drive home the hunter asked his friend, "Did you notice anything unusual about my new dog?"
"I sure did," responded his friend.  "He can't swim."

We Have a Bug

A honeymoon couple is in the Watergate Hotel in Washington. The bride is concerned "What if the place is still bugged?"
The groom says "I'll look for a bug." He looks behind the drapes, behind the pictures, under the rug "AHA!" Under the rug was a disc with four screws. He gets his Swiss army knife, unscrews the screws, throws them and the disc out the window.
The next morning, the hotel manager asks the newlyweds "How was your room? How was the service? How was your stay at the Watergate Hotel?"
The groom says, "Why are you asking me all of these questions?"
The hotel manager says, "Well, the room under you complained of the chandelier falling on them!"
