Here’s a joke for you.

Three guys and a lady were sitting at a bar talking about their professions.

The first guy says ” I’m a Y.U.P.P.I.E, you know… Young, Urban, Professional, Peaceful, Intelligent, Ecologist.”

The second guy says “I’m a D.I.N.K, you know… Double Income, No Kids.”

The third guy says, ” I’m a R.U.B, you know… Rich, Urban, Biker.”

They turn to the woman and ask her, ” What are you? ”

She replies: ” I’m a WIFE, you know…
Wash, Iron, Fuck, Etc.”

 Laughter

Didn’t get it? Well, yes it was a little sexist and lame but…

A new study suggests that an individual’s comprehension of humour actual decreases the older you get, well duh’.

msnbc.com has the details.

The research indicates that because older adults may have greater difficulty with cognitive flexibility, abstract reasoning and short-term memory, they also have greater difficulty with tests of humor comprehension.

Researchers at Washington University tested about 40 healthy adults over age 65 and 40 undergraduate students with exercises in which they had to complete jokes and stories. Participants also had to choose the correct punch line for verbal jokes and select the funny ending to series of cartoon panels.

Test showed that the younger adults did 6 percent better on the verbal jokes and 14 percent better on the comic portion than did older participants.

“There are basic cognitive mechanisms to understanding what’s going on in a joke. Older adults, because they may have deficits in some of those cognitive areas, may have a harder time understanding what a joke is about.”

Video: Bush’s watch nabbed? Whitehouse says no, video says yes….then says no again…

George W Bush received a hero’s welcome in Albania at the weekend, with hundreds of locals draped in the Stars and Stripes reaching out to hug him and shake his hand.

Mr Bush had taken his jacket off on a hot day and was in a short sleeved shirt, the watch clearly visible. It can still be seen as the heaving crowd presses round him – but the next moment it is no longer there.

Mr Bush was visiting Fushe Kruja, a small farming village some 30km from the capital Tirana whose businesses are financed by US grants. He had a cup of the cofffee in the local cafe and then in an impromptu move reached out to greet the crowd. He posed for photos and signed autographs while admirers shouting “Bushie, Bushie” mobbed him and even ruffled his hair.

“There were hands everywhere” said Corriere della Sera. “Most people just wanted to touch him and shake his hand. Someone however had another motive”. It said the incident “sounds like a joke – the one about the Albanian crowd and the Presidential wristwatch”.

Reports from Europe said that ‘Mr Bush only noticed his watch was missing when he got back to his armour-plated people-mover to be whisked back to Tirana airport’. By the time he stood on the aircraft steps to wave goodbye ‘someone on his staff had given him a replacement watch’. He is said to wear a $50 Timex with the Stars and Stripes on the dial.

Despite the apparent video evidence, it appears the Whitehouse is denying the watch nabbing, Tony Snow, Whitehouse press secretary says that “the president put it (the watch) in his pocket and it returned safely home.”

Ofcourse the most heavily protected man on the planet couldn’t possibly have his watch snatched in broad daylight, in front of all those highly trained secret service guys right?

Well, it sure wouldn’t be the first time we’ve heard lies from the Whitehouse…

Unless this is all just some elaborate hoax, or did Bush take the watch off himself?

You be the judge, have a look at this video from Albanian TV going gangbusters on youtube at the moment.

It looks like it disappears around 3:12-3:09 second mark, what do you think? 

International theft? or a load of bullshit?

Yes, very interesting indeed folks.

Yeah I thought I would throw Miss Albania in there just for the hell of it…

New video update:

NBC news America has aired new video which seems to show President Bush taking off the watch himself.

Mystery solved??????????????????????????????????????????????

The Visit

Albania apparently spent millions on the Bush visit, even though he was in the tiny Balkan nation for about 8 hours. Giant posters of a smiling Bush draped main buildings, along with thousands of flags, they even named a street after him.

Albanian love for the U.S. stems from 1999, when then-President Bill Clinton pushed for intervention in Kosovo, the Serbian breakaway province with an ethnic Albanian majority.

The U.S. is now the strongest backer of a U.N. plan that could make the province independent this year. Grateful for the help, the Albanians pride themselves of being fervently pro-U.S., and have sent troops to Iraq and Afghanistan.

Bush has a sickie at G8

US President George Bush has been taken ill at the G8 summit in Germany.
Mr Bush is said to be suffering from a stomach ailment and is resting in his room.

Bush had to skip a morning working session at the Group of Eight summit, French President Nicolas Sarkozy said.

“President Bush is slightly indisposed this morning and will rejoin the working meeting as soon as he can,” Sarkozy said after an hour-long discussion with Bush, their first bilateral talks since the French leader was elected last month.

Must have been all that pig he ate last night with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

 

Or

Was it that he was sick of all those leaders “talking too long“?

“Have you had a sexual encounter with a current member of the United States Congress or a high-ranking government official?”

That was what readers of the Washington Post were confronted with Sunday, as Hustler magazine launches a bid to uncover any Washington sex scandal it can get its dirty hands on. A toll free number and email address was provided for anyone willing to come forward with documented evidence of illicit intimate relations with a congressman, senator or other prominent officeholder.

The last time Flynt made such an offer was in October 1998 during the drive to impeach President Bill Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky scandal.

In the following months, the pornographic publishing mogul threatened to expose one or two members of the Republican Congress pushing for the impeachment, according to media reports at the time.

Anyone who comes forward with a compelling story will receive a cool US 1million dollars. So any one out there got the goods? Is it you? I sure hope so.
