The Code Words Women Use

Yes, gentlemen...women have a language all of their own! Call it femanonics or estrogish or whatever (see) below, but just like the military, gangs, rap, and nerds, there are code words that are unique to woman, and you would be well served to learn what they mean now.
(1) Fine: This is the word women use to end an argument when they think they are right and you need to shut up.  This is the MOST frequent code word used, since you will always be wrong.
(2) Five Minutes: If she is getting dressed, this means a half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given five more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

Raise the ceilings or pump out the crap?

YOUR CHOICE is coming in November.
Don't miss the opportunity.

Please pass on this easy solution to a very complex problem

Since tax season is just over the horizon and thought a humor post would could add a little levity concerning the IRS..if that is even possible? In any case, Enjoy...

At the end of the tax year, the IRS office sent an inspector to audit the books of a local hospital. While the IRS agent was checking the books, he turned to the CFO of the hospital and said, I notice you buy a lot of bandages. What do you do with the end of the roll when there's too little left to be of any use?"

"Good question," noted the CFO. "We save them up and send them back to the bandage company and every once in a while, they send us a free roll."

"Oh," replied the auditor, somewhat disappointed that his unusual question had a practical answer.

But on he went, in his obnoxious way. “What about all these plaster purchases? What do you do with what's left over after setting a cast on a patient?" "Ah, yes," replied the CFO, realizing that the inspector was tr…
