Too Much Sex -

 

I Couldn’t help but over-hear two guys in their mid-twenties while sitting at the bar last night.
One of the guys says to his buddy:  “Man you look  tired.”
His buddy says:  “Dude I’m exhausted. My girlfriend and I have sex all the time. I just don’t know what to do.”
A fellow about my age (75+), sitting a couple of  stools down, also overheard the conversation. He looked over at the two young men and with the wisdom of years says:
“Marry her. That’ll put a stop to that shit.”

 

True Friendship

This guy brings his best mate home, unannounced, for dinner at 6:30pm, after work.

His wife screams her head off while his friend sits open mouthed and listens to the tirade…
“My bloody hair & makeup are not done, the house is a f****** mess, the dishes aren’t done.
Can’t you see I’m still in my f****** pajamas and I can’t be bothered with cooking tonight!
Why the f*** did you bring him home unannounced you stupid idiot?”
“Because he’s thinking of getting married.”

Who’s been down the Chimney???

A redneck went to the hospital, as his wife was having a baby.

Upon arriving, he sat down as the nurse said to him, “Congratulations,  Your wife has had quints, five big baby boys.”

The redneck said, “I’m not surprised. I have a penis on me like a chimney.”

The nurse replied, “You might want to consider getting it cleaned. They’re all black.”

China Hacked 800,000 U.S. Postal Workers

Chinese government hackers are suspected of breaching the U.S. Postal Service computers, gaining access to the personal information on some 800,000 employees. The hacking was discovered mid-September, and the FBI is investigating the breach. The USPS announced the hacking Monday, the same day that President Obama arrived in Beijing for talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping. Security breaches at the Office of Personnel Management and government contractor USIS earlier this year were linked to China. The country has consistently denied the allegations and says Chinese law forbids cybercrimes.

Ex-NFL Player Dies of ALS at Age 42

Former Minnesota Viking Orlando Thomas died Sunday of ALS at the age of 42. Thomas was a safety, leading the league in interceptions during his rookie season in 1995. Thomas retired in 2001 and announced he was suffering from ALS in 2007. During his career, he weighed 225 pounds, but was down to just 70 when he passed away. “Nobody’s ever fought a battle like Orlando fought, with so much,” said his agent, Mark Bartlestein. “He never had a sense of self pity, never felt sorry for himself, he was always worried about everyone else.” In the league concussion settlement, the NFL offered $5 million to families of players who died of ALS.

No Domestic-Abuse Charges for 49er

1415645439209_cachedRay McDonald of the San Francisco 49ers will not face domestic-abuse charges, authorities announced Monday. “Conflicting versions of the event, a lack of verifiable eyewitnesses, and a significant lack of cooperation from Jane Doe—we cannot prove a crime occurred,” said Lindsay Walsh, the Santa Clara County deputy district attorney. The defensive end was arrested Aug. 31 on suspicion of felony domestic abuse after cops were called to his San Jose home and found an alleged victim with “visible injuries.” The alleged victim was not identified but is believed to be McDonald’s fiancée.
