Did you hear Lorena Bobbit was in a car crash?
Some dick cut her off.
Too Shy to Say
A missionary who had spent years showing a tribe of natives how to farm
and build things to be self-sufficient gets word that he is to return home.
He realizes that the one thing he never taught the natives was how to
speak English, so he takes the chief and starts walking in the forest. He
points to a tree and says to the chief, "This is a tree." The chief looks
at the tree and grunts, "Tree." The missionary is pleased with the response.
They walk a little farther and the padre points to a rock and says,
"This is a rock." Hearing this, the chief looks and grunts, "Rock." The
padre is really getting enthusiastic about the results when he hears a
rustling in the bushes. As he peeks over the top, he sees a couple in the
midst of heavy romantic activity.
The padre is really flustered and tries to cover, "He is riding a bike."
The chief looks at the couple, pulls out his blow gun and kills them. The
padre goes ballistic and yells at the chief that he has spent years teaching
the tribe how to be civilized and kind to each other, so how could he just
kill these people in cold blood that way?
The chief replies, "My bike."

God was creating man, and decided, after consultation with the Angel
Gabriel, to give man something He called "sex drive." He said to Gabriel,
"Let's give him 5 units to start with." This Gabriel did. Then God
reconsidered, "Let's give him ten!" Gabriel bent over to do His work, when
God suddenly said "Naw, give him fifteen - I want him to yell out my name!"
A Scot and a Jew were dining together at an expensive restaurant. When
the bill arrived, the Scotsman promptly declared he'd take it. The next
day, the newspaper headline read: "JEWISH VENTRILOQUIST SHOT IN RESTAURANT."
A good ol' boy is sitting in a bar one night when he notices a good
looking girl at the other end. He walks on over to her and says, in his
southern drawl, 'Howdy! How'd y'all like to come on over to my house and
we can have a real good time?"
"I'm not too sure," she replies, "where exactly are you from?"
"I'm from Kentucky, way up in the hills."
"I've heard about you guys from Kentucky," she says, "I hear you guys
will screw pigs and goats and dogs and cows and chickens and..."
He interrupts, "CHICKENS!?"
