    I thought that I would post some of my favorite jokes I have found around the internet.

    ahem...

    An American, a Dutchman and a Frenchman are all in Saudi Arabia, sharing a smuggled crate of booze when, all of a sudden, Saudi police rush in and arrest them. The mere possession of alcohol is a severe offense in Saudi Arabia, so for the terrible crime of actually being caught consuming the booze, they are all sentenced to death!

    However, after many months and with the help of very good lawyers, they are able to successfully appeal their sentences down to life imprisonment. By a stroke of luck, it was a Saudi national holiday the day their trial finished, and the extremely benevolent Sheik decided they could be released after receiving just 20 lashes each of the whip.

    As they were preparing for their punishment, the Sheik announced:

    "It's my first wife's birthday today, and she has asked me to allow each of you one wish before your whipping."

    The Dutchman was first in line, he thought for a while and then said: "Please tie a pillow to my back."

    This was done, but the pillow only lasted 10 lashes before the whip went through. When the punishment was done he had to be carried away bleeding and crying with pain.

    The Frenchman was next up. After watching the Dutchman in horror he said smugly: "Please fix two pillows to my back." But even two pillows could only take 15 lashes before the whip went through again and the Frenchman was soon led away whimpering loudly (as they do).

    The American was the last one up, but before he could say anything, the Sheik turned to him and said: "You are from a most beautiful part of the world and your culture is one of the finest in the world. For this, you may have two wishes!"

    "Thank you, your Most Royal and Merciful highness," the American replied. "In recognition of your kindness, my first wish is that you give me not 20, but 100 lashes."

    "Not only are you an honorable, handsome and powerful man, you are also very brave". The Sheik said with an admiring look on his face.

    "If 100 lashes is what you desire, then so be it. "And your second wish, what is it to be?," the Sheik asked.

    The American replied: "Tie the Frenchman to my back."

    chicken joke abridged:

    Why did the chicken cross the road?
    GEORGE W. BUSH

    We don't really care why the chicken crossed the road. We just want to know if the chicken is on our side of the road or not. The chicken is either with us or it is against us. There is no middle ground here.

    AL GORE

    I invented the chicken. I invented the road. Therefore, the chicken crossing the road represented the application of these two different functions of government in a new, reinvented way designed to bring greater services to the American people.

    BILL CLINTON

    I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What do you mean by chicken? Could you define chicken, please?

    COLIN POWELL

    Now at the left of the screen, you clearly see the satellite image of the chicken crossing the road.

    HANZ BLIX

    We have reason to believe there is a chicken, but we have not yet been allowed access to the other side of the road.

    MOHAMMED ALDOURI (Iraq ambassador)

    The chicken did not cross the road. This is a complete fabrication. We don't even have a chicken.

    SADDAM HUSSEIN

    This was an unprovoked act of rebellion and we were quite justified in dropping 50 tons of nerve gas on it

    RALPH NADER

    The chicken's habitat on the original side of the road had been polluted by unchecked industrialist greed. The chicken did not reach the unspoiled habitat on the other side of the road because it was crushed by the wheels of a gas-guzzling SUV.

    PAT BUCHANAN

    To steal a job from a decent, hard-working American.

    RUSH LIMBAUGH

    I don't know why the chicken crossed the road, but I'll bet it was getting a government grant to cross the road, and I'll bet someone out there is already forming a support group to help chickens with crossing-the-road syndrome. Can you believe this? How much more of this can real Americans take? Chickens crossing the road paid for by their tax dollars, and when I say tax dollars, I'm talking about your money, money the government took from you to build roads for chickens to cross.

    MARTHA STEWART

    No one called to warn me which way that chicken was going. I had a standing order at the farmer's market to sell my eggs when the price dropped to a certain level. No little bird gave me any insider information.

    JERRY FALWELL

    Because the chicken was gay! Isn't it obvious? Can't you people see the plain truth in front of your face? The chicken was going to the "other side." That's what they call it-the other side. Yes, my friends, that chicken is gay. And, if you eat that chicken, you will become gay too. I say we boycott all chickens until we sort out this abomination that the liberal media whitewashes with seemingly harmless phrases like "the other side."

    DR. SEUSS

    Did the chicken cross the road?

    Did he cross it with a toad?

    Yes, The chicken crossed the road, But why it crossed, I've not been told!

    ERNEST HEMINGWAY

    To die. In the rain. Alone.

    MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.

    I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads without having their motives called into question.

    BARBARA WALTERS

    Isn't that interesting? In a few moments we will be listening to the chicken tell, for the first time, the heart-warming story of how it experienced a serious case of molting and went on to accomplish its life-long dream of crossing the road.

    JOHN LENNON

    Imagine all the chickens crossing roads in peace.

    ARISTOTLE

    It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

    KARL MARX

    It was an historical inevitability.

    SIGMUND FREUD

    The fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.

    BILL GATES

    I have just released eChicken 2003, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook - and Internet Explorer is an inextricable part of eChicken.

    COLONEL SANDERS

    I missed one?
