Pushing back the frontiers of the National Socialist Workers Party………………


A new poll found that Donald Trump is ahead of Mitt Romney as the most popular Republican presidential candidate for 2012. Trump called it "great news," while Obama called it "great news


Let’s be real, if Fox News covered George W. Bush using a teleprompter it would be to praise the President’s excellent reading skills.


Donald Trump has announced he will no longer be driving the celebrity pace car in the Indianapolis 500 this year. Guess he can’t stand even the appearance anymore of turning to the left


President Obama is going to host a poetry night at the White House next week. That’s right, Obama will recite some Yeats, Hillary will recite some Frost, Biden will recite some Seuss.


Osama's last words? "This is Abbottabad as it gets."

The citizens of Altoona, Pennsylvania were paid $25,000 to temporarily change the name of the city to help promote Morgan Spurlock's new movie. They're getting spoiled. They already collected $50,000 for naming the city Altoona.


Wonder how Obama got elected? If pigs could vote, the man with the slop bucket would be elected swineherd every time, no matter how much slaughtering he did on the side


I'm not saying my golf game went bad, but if I grew tomatoes, they'd come up sliced.


I'm writing a book about the recession - It starts with Chapter 11.

Particular Paul’s Pernicious Puns………………………

If someone complains that punning is the lowest form of humor, you can tell them that poetry is verse.


I have an 18-year-old, her name is Alexis. I chose that name because if I hadn't had her, I'd be driving one.


Sometime back during prohibition Bing and Bob developed a powerful thirst for some moonshine. Bing said, "I have a brother who lives up in the Carolina hills who has just finished setting up a little operation. Perhaps he'd let us try out some of his first batch of hooch."   The two buddies hit the road to Carolina and tracked down Bing's brother just as he was drawing off the first bottle of whiskey. "Here, try this and tell me if you think it's aged enough," said the novice moonshiner.   Bob, took a swig, made a sour face, and quickly pronounced, "Crosbie's still's mash is young."


I called the plumber on the phone. "Can you come over and fix my kitchen sink again?" His encouraging reply: "You know I'm always at your disposal."


He was a tailor who took out an ad in the Yellow Pages that read, "I'll cut for you, I'll sew for you, I'll even dye for you."


Never complain about the price of a train ticket. It’s bound to be fare.

Hungry Harry’s Hundred Best Hoaxes……………………………


#42: Webnode   1999: A press release issued over Business Wire announced the creation of a new company called Webnode. This company, according to the release, had been granted a government contract to regulate ownership of 'nodes' on the 'Next Generation Internet.' Each of these nodes (there were said to be over 50 million of them) represented a route that data could travel. The company was licensed to sell each node for $100. Nodes would increase in value depending on how much traffic they routed, and owners would also receive usage fees based on the amount of data that flowed across their section of the internet. Therefore, bidding for the nodes was expected to become quite intense. Offers to buy shares in Webnode soon began pouring in, but they all had to be turned down since the company was just a prank. There really was a Next Generation Internet, but there were no nodes on it. Business Wire didn't find the prank amusing and filed suit against its perpetrators for fraud, breach of contract, defamation, and conspiracy.
