Don’t blame me if you don‘t like this brand of humor. My Internet friends send these along for laughs. I merely clean some of them a bit and pass them along to you.

THE OIL SHORTAGE. There are a lot of folks who can't understand how we came to have an oil shortage here in America. Well, there's a very simple answer:
“Nobody bothered to check the oil. We just didn't know we were getting low. The reason for that is purely geographical. All our oil is in Alaska, Texas, California, and Oklahoma. All our dipsticks are in Washington, D.C.“      From geevee

SHEER MADNESS. A husband enters Frederick's of Hollywood to purchase some sheer lingerie for his wife. The clerk shows him several possibilities ranging from $250 to $500 - the more sheer, the higher the price. He opts for the most sheer item, pays the $500 and takes the lingerie home. He presents it to his wife and asks her to go upstairs, put it on and model it for him. Upstairs, the wife thinks, “I have an idea. It's so sheer that it might as well be nothing. I won't put it on, but do the modeling naked and return it the next day and get a $500 refund for myself”. So she appears naked on the balcony and strikes a pose. Husband says, “Good grief! You'd think for $500, they'd at least iron it!” Funeral services are pendiing.      From AlabamaNanDog

LIBERAL LINEUP. A florist, a policeman and a liberal politician went to their barber for haircuts. When each tried to pay, the barber told them, “I'm doing community service this week, so I am not charging my customers for haircuts.” Awaiting him when he reopened his shop the following morning were: a box containing a dozen roses and a thank-you card from the florist, a box containing a dozen doughnuts and a thank-you card from the policeman, and a lineup of dozen liberals to take advantage of the free haircuts.      From Rgarner

TAXI RIDE. A passenger in a taxi leaned over to ask the driver a question and tapped him on the shoulder. The driver screamed, lost control of the cab, nearly hit a bus, drove up over the curb, and stopped just inches from a large plate glass window. For a few moments everything was silent in the cab, and then the still shaking driver said,
“I'm sorry but you scared the daylights out of me.”
The frightened passenger apologized to the driver and said he didn't realize a mere tap on the shoulder could frighten him so much.
The driver replied, “No, no, I'm sorry, it's my entire fault - today is my first day driving a cab. I've been driving a hearse for the last 25 years.      1stADMPAO
