This guy was lonely ...
and so he decided life would
be more fun if he had a pet.
So he went to the pet store and told the owner that
he wanted to buy an unusual pet. After some discussion, he finally bought a
centipede, which came in a little white box to use for his house.
He took the box back home, found a good location for the box, and decided he
would start off by taking his new pet to the bar to have a drink.
So he asked the centipede in the box, "Would you like to go to Franks with
me and have a beer?" but there was no answer from his new pet. This bothered
him a bit, but he waited a few minutes and then asked him again,
"How about going to the bar and having a drink with me?"
But again, there was no answer from his new friend and pet. So he waited a
few minutes more, thinking about the situation.
He decided to ask him one more time; this time putting his face up against
the centipede's house and shouting,
"Hey, in there! Would you like to go to Frank's place and have a drink
A little voice came out of the box:
"I heard you the first time! I'm putting my f*cking shoes on."
CIA Job opening
The CIA had an opening for an assassin.
After all the background checks, interviews, and testing were done, there
were three finalists ... two men and a woman. For the final test, the CIA
agents took one of the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun.
"We must know that you will follow your instructions, no matter what the
circumstances. Inside this room, you will find your wife sitting in a chair.
The man said, "You can't be serious. I could never shoot my wife." The agent
said, "Then you're not the right man for this job. Take your wife and go
The second man was given the same instructions. He took the gun and went
into the room. All was quiet for about five minutes. Then the man came out
with tears in his eyes. "I tried, but I can't kill my wife." The agent said,
"You don't have what it takes. Take your wife and go home."
Finally, it was the woman's turn. She was given the same instructions, to
kill her husband. She took the gun and went into the room. Shots were heard,
one shot after another. They heard screaming, crashing, banging on the
walls. After a few minutes, all was quiet. The door opened slowly and there
stood the woman. She wiped the sweat from her brow.. "This gun is loaded
with blanks,” she said. "I had to beat him to death with the chair."
