    Rachel613- I’m a bit late, but WELCOME to the Grand CR 🙂

    Please stick around and post!



    Vaad Merkozi d’Sinas Chinom veMachloikes introduces Dor Reshoim.

    No longer do you have to do background checks on shidduchim because we do it all for you completely anonymously. Our worldwide network of male volunteers (bulvonim) and female volunteers (choleriois) comb through every detail of your potential shidduch’s life and the life of his or her family. We even install hidden cameras in homes and cars to find out the really important details like music being listened to, dress, head covering and every last word exchanged by members of the family to each other and to everyone they interact with. We even have moles in major banks and financial institutions, as well as the welfare administration, so you can find out if your potential shver really has money or is just mortgaged and leased to the hilt!

    Our system is very simple. We assign every prospective shidduch a number which is posted with their real name and address in every mikveh, coffee room, pizza shop and simcha hall in the US, Eretz Yisroel and Europe. Then, our network of bulvanim and choleiriois who see that information report back to our kommandanten who in turn share their information with you depending upon that all important factor – how much you pay them.

    Our affordable sliding scale of payment, with rates depending on yichus, factors you want us to observe, and the car you drive (including whether you own it or lease it) is determined before the number is assigned and is as arbitrary as the shidduch process itself thereby guaranteeing its value.

    For more information call 1-888-RESH-OIM now or contact Mechel or Gnendle in the men’s or ladies’ mikveh respectively.


    The coach had put together the perfect team for the Detroit Lions. The only thing that was missing was a good quarterback. He had scouted all the colleges and even the Canadian and European Leagues, but he couldn’t find a ringer who could ensure a Super Bowl win.

    Then one night while watching CNN he saw a war-zone scene in Afghanistan In one corner of the background, he spotted a young Afghan Muslim soldier with a truly incredible arm. He threw a hand-grenade straight into a 15th story window 100 yards away.


    He threw another hand-grenade 75 yards away, right into a chimney.


    Then he threw another at a passing car going 90 mph.


    “I’ve got to get this guy!” Coach said to himself.. “He has the perfect arm!”

    So, he brings him to the States and teaches him the great game of football. And the Lions go on to win the Super Bowl. The young Afghan is hailed as the great hero of football, and when the coach asks him what he wants, all the young man wants is to call his mother.

    “Mom,” he says into the phone, “I just won the Super Bowl!”

    “I don’t want to talk to you, the old Muslim woman says. “You deserted us. You are not my son!”

    “I don’t think you understand, Mother,” the young man pleads “I’ve won the greatest sporting event in the world. I’m here among thousands of my adoring fans.” a

    “No! Let me tell you!” his mother retorts. “At this very moment, there are gunshots all around us. The neighborhood is a pile of rubble. Your two brothers were beaten within an inch of their lives last week!” The old lady pauses, and then tearfully says,”I will never forgive you for making us move to Detroit!”


    mepal, I dont get it…



    Mordechai ben David and Shlomo Carlebach were supposed to put out an album together many years ago. However, the project was canceled when it became evident the best title would be “MBD and LSD”.


    A boat docked in a tiny Mexican village. An American tourist

    complimented the Mexican fisherman on the quality of his fish and

    asked how long it took him to catch them.

    “Not very long,” answered the Mexican.

    “But then, why didn’t you stay out longer and catch more?” asked the American.

    The Mexican explained that his small catch was sufficient to meet his

    needs and those of his family.

    The American asked, “But what do you do with the rest of your time?”

    “I sleep late, fish a little and play with my children. In the evenings, I go into the village to see my

    friends, have a few drinks, play the guitar, and sing a few songs. I

    have a full life.”

    The American interrupted, “I have an MBA from Harvard and I can help

    you! You should start by fishing longer every day. You can then sell

    the extra fish you catch. With the extra revenue, you can buy a bigger


    “And after that?” asked the Mexican.

    “With the extra money the larger boat will bring, you can buy a second

    one and a third one and so on until you have an entire fleet of

    trawlers. Instead of selling your fish to a middle man, you can then

    negotiate directly with the processing plants and maybe even open your

    own plant. You can then leave this little village and move to Mexico

    City , Los Angeles , or even New York City ! From there you can direct

    your huge new enterprise.”

    “How long would that take?” asked the Mexican.

    “Twenty, perhaps twenty-five years,” replied the American.

    “And after that?”

    “Afterwards? Well my friend, that’s when it gets really interesting,”

    answered the American, laughing. “When your business gets really big,

    you can start buying and selling stocks and make millions!”

    “Millions? Really? And after that?” asked the Mexican.

    “After that you’ll be able to retire, live in a tiny village near the

    coast, sleep late, play with your children, catch a few fish, and spend your evenings drinking and enjoying

    your friends.”

    And the moral of this story is: ……… Know where you’re going in

    life… you may already be there.

    Anything wrong with the old?


    I was walking down the street when I was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless woman who asked me for a couple of dollars for dinner.

    I took out my wallet, got out ten dollars and asked, ‘If I give you this money, will you buy wine with it instead of dinner?’

    ‘No, I had to stop drinking years ago’, the homeless woman told me.

    ‘Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?’ I asked.

    ‘No, I don’t waste time shopping,’ the homeless woman said. ‘I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive.’

    ‘Will you spend this on a beauty salon instead of food?’ I asked.

    ‘Are you NUTS!’ replied the homeless woman. I haven’t had my hair done in 20 years!’

    ‘Well, I said, ‘I’m not going to give you the money. Instead, I’m going to take you out for dinner with my husband and me tonight.’

    The homeless Woman was shocked. ‘Won’t your husband be furious with you for doing that? I know I’m dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting.’

    I said, ‘That’s okay. It’s important for him to see what a woman looks like after she has given up shopping, hair appointments, and wine.’


    A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during a

    particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where

    they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier.

    Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their

    travel schedules. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida

    on Thursday, with his wife flying down the following day. The husband

    checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he

    decided to send an email to his wife. However, he accidentally left

    out one letter in her email address, and without realizing his error,

    sent the email.

    Meanwhile, somewhere inHouston, a widow had just returned home from

    her husband’s funeral. He was a minister who was called home to glory

    following a heart attack.

    The widow decided to check her email expecting messages from relatives

    and friends. After reading the first message, she screamed and


    The widow’s son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor,

    and saw the computer screen which read:

    To: My Loving Wife

    Subject: I’ve Arrived

    Date: October 16, 2007

    I know you’re surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now

    and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones.

    I’ve just arrived and have been checked in. I see that

    everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow.

    Looking forward to seeing you then! Hope your journey is as uneventful

    as mine was.

    Mrs. Beautiful, I think the end to that email was: P.S. Sure is hot down here!


    President Clinton to maid: Mam, can you do something about Hillary’s room.

    A bakasho nafshis and final psak regarding the burning of garbage bins in Yerushalayim:

    “How long must klal Yisroel who walk in the dim, flickering light of kanoius for show keep burning garbage bins with no purpose whatsoever? It is known to the greatest of gedoilim, arvei d’rabbonon Reb Moussa as-Sabih, Reb Yishmoel as-Sabih, Reb Moussa al-Dib Beck, Reb Yishmoel Daoud al-Beyda, Reb Haroun Cohen and others of their most holy and deluded ilk that the sole purpose of a fire is to incinerate with the flames of the klipa of kanoius that which is sewn for the klipa of tzioinis, namely the blue and white official dishrag of the medine. We hereby proclaim that it is ossur lemehadrim to burn any garbage bin which does not contain at least three such flags of a dimension not less than six square amois each.

    Our hyliger burqa and kaffiye boutiques in Ramallah ir hakoidesh are standing at the ready to sell such dishrags for the continuing demonstrations insh’allah and it is recumbent upon each true kanoi leshem ha-Shish and leshem atzmoi to purchase such flags for incendiary purposes only.”

    Dear Friends:

    It is with the saddest heart that we must pass on the following news.

    Please join us in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community.

    The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.

    Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Cap’n Crunch. The gravesite was piled high with flours.

    Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but his later life was filled with turnovers. He was not considered a very ‘smart’ cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky in his youth and a crusty old man, he was considered a roll model for millions.

    Doughboy is survived by his wife, Play Dough; two children, John Dough and Jane Dough; plus the bun they had in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart.

    Something I once overheard:

    ‘For years I was saddened at the sheer number of neighborhoods that had signs up that said “Slow Children at Play”. I would shake my head and wonder what kind of future all of these children could look forward to. What do all these kids become when they grow up? When I expressed my concerns to a friend, he assured me that their future was undoubtedly secure – judging by the sheer number of signs along the highways that say “Slow Men at Work”.’



    squeak, are you BLONDE by any chance?? lol


    A girl was visiting her blonde friend, who had acquired two new dogs, and

    asked her what their names were. The blonde responded by saying that one was

    named Rolex and one was named Timex.

    Her friend said, “Whoever heard of someone naming dogs like that?”

    “HELLLOOOOOOO……,” answered the blond. “They’re watch dogs!”


    good one!! (squeak)

    yossi z.

    mepal: if you have a problum with my spelling than teech me english!


    Actually, Mepal, I would have passed.

    I knew that the Hundred Years’ War lasted 116 years.

    I knew that the October Revolution is commemorated in what is November in the Gregorian calendar (but at the time of the revolution in Russia they were still using the Julian calendar).

    I knew catgut does not come from cats (although, to be fair, I said sheep — not sheep and horses)

    I knew George’s first name was Albert (he was called “Bertie” by his family).


    I knew that the black boxes were orange.

    I knew that Panama hats did not come from Panama, but did not know where.

    I did not know about camel hair brushes (although by the time I got to that question, I figured out the theme of the quiz — so I knew it wasn’t camel.)

    I never thought about the Canary Islands, but considering the Latin root for dog it makes sense. (and, BTW, the Canary Islands are in the Atlantic, off the coast of Africa — not the Pacific. They were an important stopping point in early American exploration).

    I did not know the color of a purple finch (outside of the context of the quiz, I would have guessed “purple,” and I never heard of Chinese gooseberries.

    Ethical Behavior

    A defendant in a lawsuit involving large sums of money was talking to his lawyer.

    “If I lose this case, I’ll be ruined.”

    “It’s in the judge’s hands now,” said the lawyer.

    “Would it help if I sent the judge a box of


    “Oh no! This judge is a stickler or ethical

    behavior. A stunt like that would prejudice him against you. He might even hold you in

    contempt of court. In fact, you shouldn’t even smile at the judge.”

    Within the course of time, the judge rendered a decision in favor of the defendant.

    As the defendant left the courthouse, he said to his lawyer, “Thanks for the tip about the cigars. It worked!”

    “I’m sure we would have lost the case if

    you’d sent them.” “But, I did send them.”

    “What? You did?” said the lawyer, incredulously.

    “Yes. That’s how we won the case.”

    “I don’t understand,” said the lawyer.

    “It’s easy. I sent the cigars to the judge,

    but enclosed the plaintiff’s business card.”



    kapusta, good one!!


    mepal- I posted that as my favorite email a few pages back (maybe it’s in the Good Emails thread). Great one

    A man walked into a very high-tech bar. As he sat down on a stool he noticed that the bartender was a robot. The robot clicked to attention and asked, “Sir, what will you have?”

    The man thought a moment then replied, “A martini please.”

    The robot clicked a couple of times and mixed the best martini the man had ever had.

    The robot then asked, “Sir, what is your IQ?”

    The man answered “oh, about 164.”

    The robot then proceeded to discuss the ‘theory of relativity’, ‘inter-stellar space travel’, ‘the latest medical break throughs’, etc…….

    The man was most impressed. He left the bar but thought he would try a different tactic. He returned and took a seat. Again the robot clicked and asked what he would have? “A Martini please.”

    Again it was superb. The robot again asked “what is your IQ sir?”

    This time the man answered, “Oh about 100”. So the robot started discussing Nascar racing, the latest basketball scores, and what to expect the Dodgers to do this weekend.

    The guy had to try it one more time. So he left, returned and took a stool…. Again a martini, and the question, “What is your IQ?”??

    This time the man drawled out “Uh….. bout 50”.

    The robot clicked then leaned close and very slowly asked,

    “A-r-e y-o-u p-e-o-p-l-e s-t-i-l-l h-a-p-p-y w-i-t-h O-B-A-M-A?”
