    Joke: Gas price comparison

    Gas Prices vs ?

    People have been complaining about the rising price of gasoline recently, but I have always thought that gas was a good value (especially if you were to take the $0.30, $0.40 per gallon tax off at the pump)! Obviously others need a little convincing. So the article in this week's "Autoweek" magazine brought it all to light. What if you were to buy a gallon of . . .

    1. - Diet Snapple 16 oz for $1.29 = $10.32 per gallon
    2. - Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz for $1.19 = $9.52 per gallon
    3. - Gatorade 20 oz for $1.59 = $10.17 per gallon
    4. - Ocean Spray 16 oz for $1.25 = $10.00 per gallon
    5. - Quart of Milk 16 oz for $1.59 = $6.32 per gallon
    6. - Evian (water) 9 oz for $1.49 = $21.19 per gallon
    7. - STP Brake Fluid 12 oz for $3.15 = $33.60 per gallon
    8. - Vicks Nyquil 6 oz for $8.35 = $178.13 per gallon
    9. - Pepto Bismol 4 oz for $3.85 = $123.20 per gallon
    10. - Whiteout 7 oz for $1.39 = $254.17 per gallon
    11. - Scope 1.5 oz for $0.99 = $84.84 per gallon
    So next time you're at the pump, be glad your car doesn't run on Nyquil or Scope or Whiteout!

    Quart of Milk 16 oz for $1.59 = $6.32 per gallon
    around here, a gallon of milk costs $2.19


    on another note, if a gallon of gas lasted me as long as a bottle of whiteout, I'd pay the difference!

    Milk here is about $2/Gallon
    Evian is $6/Case of 24 - 20oz. bottles = $1.60/Gallon

    I can go through a gallon of gas in about 20 minutes, whereas a gallon of a few of these products is either a months or a year's supply.

    My late step dad was a CPA. He enjoyed pointing out the absurdities in some products;

    Maybeline mascara; 9 grams for $6.95 at walgreens. That's 350.27 dollars a pound.

    Some of the more expensive ones are close to $30 for 10 grams. 1360.77 a pound.

    Super glue was another of his favorites. 2 grams for $4.99.

    Those are overpriced sizes most people don't buy and none of them are required for daily use by most people. Millions of employees in the USA need gasoline or diesel to maintain employment and have no other PRACTICAL choice at this time.

    Just because it could be worse, as it is in Europe, is no reason it should be. Energy producers have been making record profits and were given a multi-billion dollar gift of OUR money by the last congress, pushed by the W and Cheney's "Energy Commission".

    A lady was walking down the street to work and she saw a parrot on a perch in front of a pet store.

    The parrot said to her, "Hey lady, you are really ugly." Well, the lady is furious!

    She stormed past the store to her work.

    On the way home she saw the same parrot and it said to her, "Hey lady, you are really ugly." She was incredibly ticked now.

    The next day the same parrot again said to her, "Hey lady, you are really ugly."

    The lady was so ticked that she went into the store and said that she would sue the store and kill the bird. The store manager replied profusely and promised he would make sure the parrot didn't say it again.

    When the lady walked past the store that day after work the parrot called to her, "Hey lady."

    She paused and said,"Yes?"

    The bird said, "You know."

    A burglar is robbing a home when he hears a small voice say, "Jesus sees you." Startled, he turns and looks around, but finding no one he decides it was his imagination and goes back to stuffing loot into his sack.

    Once again he hears, "Jesus sees you." This time, he sees that it was a small parrot. Laughing, he says to the parrot, "Oh, I see. I guess you're Jesus."

    "My name is Paco," the parrot replys. "Jesus is the rottweiler standing behind you."

    A young woman has just undressed to step into the shower when the doorbell
    rings. She goes to the door and says, "Who is it?"

    "Blind man," comes the reply.

    So instead of going back to the bathroom for her robe, she opens the door.

    "Hmmm.. nice body, lady. Where do you want the blinds?"

    Crackup Re: there are some Jokes

    The following exercise appeared on the Scottish Bar Exam a few years back.
    You would probably not find this in North America :->


    SECTION A - SCOTS CRIMINAL LAW



    Angus drops into the "Govan Arms", a trendy wine bar in Glasgow, with
    three of his friends. The bar's speciality is an "E1 Dorado cocktail", a
    lethal combination of fortified wine and vodka. Bruce, who has never
    before been in a pub and is a strict teetotaller, is told by Angus that
    the concoction is alcohol-free; Bruce agrees to try one. Calumn, who is
    perfectly aware that the brew is potent, also accepts Angus's offer of a
    drink. Angus and Donald beforehand have agreed to liven things up by
    "spiking" the drinks of the other two. Angus asks the barman to add three
    more double vodkas to each one pint glass of the cocktail, and then
    himself throws in a couple of LSD tablets. Angus and Donald stick to Coca
    Cola.

    The order is repeated, and again, Angus adds vodka and LSD. Both Bruce and
    Ca1umn feel "high". In the toilet, Bruce is accosted by Edgar who places
    his hand on Bruce's thigh, and says "what about it?". Incensed, Bruce
    lashes out. Edgar hits his head on the stone floor, and is killed
    instantly. Donald, meanwhile, has gone into the back room with the
    1andlord's daughter, a pretty young thing who claims to be 18 (but is
    indeed only 14), and who explains her school uniform as an indication
    merely that she is a slow learner. The two are engaged in sexual
    intercourse when the barman, Fred, enters. Calumn steps in to defend
    Donald. He challenges Fred to ?step outside? for a man-to-man fight. This
    "square go" (in local parlance) results in Angus, Bruce and Donald
    watching and encouraging while Ca1umn hits Fred repeatedly. Calumn is a
    sportsman: once Fred is lying on the ground, he walks away. However, the
    other three then join in by kicking Fred, while Angus produces his handy
    6" sheath knife which he sticks in Fred's thigh.

    Fortunately. Dr. Nesbit is on hand in the pub, sitting in his usual corner
    surrounded by empty glasses. Dr. Nesbit already has had more than his
    daily allowance of lager, but nonetheless proceeds to take charge of the
    situation. His sight is not as good as it once was; his hand shakes; and
    his memory of medical knowledge is rather rusty. Attempts at stopping the
    flow of blood are unsuccessful, since force is being applied to the wrong
    pressure points. After half an hour, Nesbit acknowledges defeat, and calls
    for an ambulance. Fred dies en route to the hospital.

    Consider whether any breaches of the criminal law have occurred. (30 points.)

    After first seeing Microsoft's slogan for its Windows XP operating
    system, "it just works", I couldn't help wondering: what were the slogans
    for all the previous releases? After thinking about it for a while, they
    became obvious.

    Windows 1.0: Good joke, eh?
    Windows 2.0: Still funny, isn't it?
    Windows 286: Yeah, we're still kidding.
    Windows 386: Going boldly where Desqview has been for years.
    Windows 3.0: It's finally worth buying!
    Windows 3.1: It's finally worth using!
    Windows 95: Going boldly where the Mac has been for years.
    Windows 98: More usable! Less stable!
    Windows 98SE: More stable! Less usable!
    Windows ME: Less usable AND less stable!
    NT 1.0: Give me more hardware! NOW!!!
    NT 2.0: Dammit, I said MORE HARDWARE!!! NOW!!!!
    NT 3.0: Which part of "more hardware" do you not understand?
    NT 3.5: With enough hardware, I'd work. Honest.
    NT 4.0: Does less than Win98 with twice the hardware at one-half the
    speed.
    Windows 2K: Works almost as well as Windows 98! Honest!
    Windows XP: It just works.

    A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though a whale is a very large mammal, its throat is very small. The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale. The teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow a human, it was impossible. The little girl said, "When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah".
    The teacher asked, "What if Jonah went to hell?"
    The little girl replied, "Then you ask him!"

    When the priest returned three years later, he went to the couple's house and found the wife pregnant, busily attending to two sets of twins. Elated, the priest asked her where her husband was so that he could congratulate him.

    A man wanted to prove to a group of alcoholics the effect of alcohol in human body system. He brought two jars; one containing water and the other containing alcohol, along with a very healthy worm. He said to the audience:

    "This jar contain water"

    He dropped the worm in the jar and said, "Please watch the reaction". The worm swam to the side of the jar and up it floats dangling and swimming.

    The man took the worm out of the first jar and put it in the second jar containing alcohol and said to the audience " now watch the reaction" The worm went right down into the water and struggled for survival. There and then every body saw the worm shrinking and dis-integrating, and in one word, died.

    The man turned round an asked the audience " what would you all say to this".

    After a long silence, someone from the rear stood up and said

    " I can see that if I drink alcohol, there will be no more worn in my body".

    An Irishman, a Mexican and a Blonde Guy were doing construction work on
    scaffolding on the 20th floor of a building.

    They were eating lunch and the Irishman said,"Corned beef and cabbage! If
    I get corned beef and cabbage one more time for lunch, I'm going to jump
    off this building"

    The Mexican opened his lunch box and exclaimed,"Burritos again! If I get
    burritos one more time I'm going to jump off, too."

    The blonde opened his lunch and said, " Bologna again! If I get a bologna
    sandwich one more time, I'm jumping too."

    The next day, the Irishman opened his lunch box, saw corned beef and
    cabbage, and jumped to his death.


    The Mexican opened his lunch, saw a burrito, and jumped, too.

    The blonde guy opened his lunch, saw the bologna and jumped to his death
    as well. At the funeral, the Irishman's wife was weeping. She said, "If
    I'd known how really tired he was of corned beef and cabbage, I never
    would have given it to him again!"

    The Mexican's wife also wept and said, "I could have given him tacos or
    enchiladas! I didn't realize he hated burritos so much."

    Everyone turned and stared at the blonde's wife. The blonde's wife said,


    "Don't look at me. He made his own lunch."

    A woman was sitting at a bar enjoying an after-work cocktail with her girlfriends when an exceptionally tall, handsome, extremely sexy young man entered. He was so striking that the woman could not take her eyes away from him. The young man noticed her overly attentive stare & walked directly toward her. Before she could offer her apologies for being so rude for staring, the young man said to her, 'I'll do anything, absolutely anything, that you want me to do, no matter how kinky, for $100, on one condition.' Flabbergasted, the woman asked what the condition was. The young man replied, 'You have to tell me what you want me to do in just three words.'
    The woman considered his proposition for a moment, withdrew from her purse and slowly counted out five $20 bills, which she pressed into the young man's hand along with her address. She looked deeply into his eyes & slowly, meaningfully said, "Clean my house."
