A woman awoke to find that her husband wasn't in their bed. She went downstairs. He was sitting at the kitchen table with a cup of coffee, all deep in thought, staring at the wall. She saw him wipe a tear from his face and take another sip of his coffee.

"Coming down here now? It's midnight. What's the problem dear?" she asked.

"Do you remember 20 years ago when we were dating and you weren't even 16?" he asked.

"How I do." she said.

"And remember when your father found us, out in the back seat of my old Buick?"

"I do."

"And remember him shoving that shotgun right in front of my face and saying, 'Either you marry my daughter or spend the next 20 years in prison'?"

"I do", she replied.

He wiped another tear and said, "I would've gotten out today."

Chad was in a mess of man-trouble again. He had forgotten his 2nd wedding anniversary! His feared wife was inhumanly furious at him.

She irately fumed at him, threatening, "Okay you idiot! Tomorrow I want a fancy gift in the driveway that goes from 0 to 120 in 6 seconds. May God mark my words: IT HAD BETTER BE THERE !!"

The next morning, he got up early and went to work. When his moody wife awoke, she peered out the window and Aha! discovered sure enough there was a small present which he had gift-wrapped in the middle of the street.

Abashed, the wife put on her robe, walked out to the street, and took the present back in the house.

Opening it up, she found a brand new bathroom scale.

Chad has been missing since Friday.

A few months ago, there was an opening with the CIA for an assassin. These highly clandestine positions are hard to fill, and then there's a lot of testing and background scrutiny involved before you can even be considered for the position. After sending some applicants through the background checks and the training and the testing, they narrowed the possible choices down to three: two males and one female, but there was only one position available.

The day came for the final test to see which person would get to have the secretive job. The men administering the test took one of the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun. "We must know that you will follow our orders whatever the circumstances," they calmly told him. "Inside this room, you will find your wife sitting in a chair. Now you must take the gun and kill her."

The man looked horrified and said, "No! You can't be serious!" "I wouldn't ever harm my dear wife!" he sobbed. "Well," said the tough CIA man, "you're definitely not the right man for the job then. Now leave."

So then they brought the second man to the same door and handed him the gun. "We must know that you will follow our orders no matter what the circumstances." Then they told the second man, "Inside you will find your wife sitting in a chair. Now take the gun and kill her."
~
The second man looked very shocked and sick, but nevertheless took the gun and went armed into the room. All was silent for about five minutes. The door opened; the man came out of the room clenching his eyes in pain. Crying, he said. "I panicked. I tried to shoot twice, but I just couldn't pull the trigger and shoot my wife. I guess I was never the man for the job." "No," the CIA man replied, "You don't have the icy nerves of a CIA agent. You can go home with your wife."

Now only the woman was left. The CIA guys led her to the same door and same room and handed her the gun. They said, "We must be sure you will follow every instruction no matter what the circumstances; this is your final test. Inside you will find your husband sitting in a chair. Take this gun, go in, and kill him with it."

The woman took the gun, ran, and opened the door. Before the door even closed all the way, the CIA men heard the gun start firing, one shot after another for fifteen shots. All hell broke loose in the room. They heard manic screaming, clanking, and frantic banging on the walls. This went on for several minutes; then all went silent.

The door opened slowly, and there stood the woman. She wiped sweat from her brow and ranted, "You guys didn't tell me the gun was loaded with blanks. I had to beat the son of a bitch to death with the chair!"

How to Defend Yourself Against the Velociraptor

1. You need to be sure you're fighting a velociraptor. To identify it; find something to throw at it. If it runs at you phenomenally fast, infuriated, thrashing and screaming, it probably is a velociraptor. You are now in some big danger.

2. Next, run away. It will catch you immediately.

3. Now's your big chance! Hit it behind the head. But maybe in the arm or the tail.

4. Call the police but don't say much about fighting a velociraptor because they won't believe you; say you are fighting terrorism.

Tips
* Avoid velociraptors.
* I recommend you always have a homemade phony velociraptor costume handy so you can mesmerise a velociraptor into thinking you are also a velociraptor. (Though note: this won't actually work)
Warnings
* Velociraptors have very sharp teeth and hidden claws for penetration as demonstrated in Jurassic Park, when Sam Neill shamelessly uses that raptor claw to discuss slicing that kid up into a mess of flesh confetti.
* Many velociraptors can open doors barehanded and may even have the ability to learn other simple tasks such as: gardening and listening to Country Music.

=

How to Appear Human

1. Choose a Human to imitate. Avoid world leaders; assassination may lead to your being detected.

2. Grow - or attach using adhesive - "Human like" limbs which may be artificially constructed out of ordinary raw materials (e.g. ice, duct tape, etc...) Then select dye color having visibility in the average Human's visual spectrum, applying this dye liberally to any limbs.

3. The final layer is comprised entirely of woven fabric. Depending on the age of the Human which you have chosen to imitate, rips and stretch marks may be very convincing. Finally, apply polystyrene triangles and circles to just the top of your anatomy. Do not overdo it; Humans are not Krakens.

4. You are ready to embark on your mission. To move yourself forward, push against the ground with all of your prostheses that have an orientation towards the native gravitational body.

Tips
* Attaching fibrous protein strands to the top of your outer anatomy along with geometric shapes allows for a more convincing disguise.
Warnings
* Do not eat other Humans in public; experience indicates that their culture considers this wholly unacceptable behavior.

WHY DID THE CHICKEN CROSS THE ROAD?

Ludwig Wittgenstein: "Crossing" was individually encoded into those objects "chicken" and "road" until that caused the actualization of the phenomenon.

Hippocrates: It is usually because of an excess of phlegm in its pancreas.

Johann Friedrich von Goethe: The eternal hen-principle made it do it.

Jack Nicholson: Because it f-ing wanted to. That is f-ing why

Mark Twain: The unfortunate news of its untimely crossing has been greatly exaggerated.

Thomas de Torquemada: Give me thirty minutes with it and I'll find out.

Douglas Adams: Forty-two.

Oliver North: Because our entire National Security was at stake.

B.F. Skinner: The external influences which had virtually pervaded its sensorium from birth had likewise caused it to unknowingly develop in such a fashion that it would tend to cross roads, even while fully believing such actions to be of its own free will.

Albert Einstein: The chicken crossed the road or the road crossed it; that depends upon your frame of reference.

Jean-Paul Sartre: In order for it to act in good faith and for it to be true to itself, that chicken found it morally necessary to cross that road. ~

Carl Jung: The confluence of events in the cultural gestalt necessitated that chickens cross roads at this juncture, and therefore synchronicitously brought each such occurrence into being.

Aristotle: To actualize its potential.

Buddha: To ask the forbidden question is to deny one's own essential chicken-nature.

Timothy Leary: Just because it's the only kind of damned trip the Establishment would let it take.

David Hume: Out of custom and habit.

Salvador Dali: Fish.

Karl Marx: It was an historical inevitability.

Darwin: It was the first logical next step after leaping headlong down from the trees.

Emily Dickinson: Because it could not stop for death.

Epicurus: For fun.

Werner Heisenberg: We are not certain which side of the road it was on, though coincidentally it was moving downright fast.

Saddam Hussein: This was an unprovoked act of defiance, hence we were justified in dropping fifty tons of nerve gas on it.

Henry David Thoreau: For it chose to live deliberately ... and suck the marrow out of life.

Ernest Hemingway: To die. In the rain.

Pyrrho the Skeptic: What road?

Ronald Reagan: I forgot.

The Sphinx: Can you tell me?

Colonel Sanders: I missed one?
