Armed and Naked In Texas, game wardens came across an arresting sight in Gregg County last November: an unnamed Upshur County man hunting in the nude along a state highway. The Houston Chronicle reported that the hunter, who is a well-known nudist and activist in the area, contested his arrest on charges including hunting without a license, but one look in court at the warden’s body cam footage undermined his case. The man then dropped his appeals and settled the citations. Toilet Ghost Homeowners in Noosa, Queensland, Australia, were perplexed about why their toilet kept randomly flushing, so on Jan. 28, they looked into the flush mechanism embedded in the wall behind the toilet. Then they summoned Luke Huntley, a local snake catcher. Huntley found a 13-foot brown tree snake in the niche, according to the Daily Mail, resting on the flush mechanism. “Hopefully, he’s going to be able to come straight out,” Huntley said on a video of the capture, “but he’s a little grumpy.”

An old sailor was out walking on the dock one day when he met a former ship mate of his. They had not seen each other for many years so they had much to talk about and many old memories to renew. After some time, one said to the other, “If you don’t mind my saying so, you don’t look very good, you must have experienced some bad luck.” “Yes,” the other one said, “I have. You see this peg leg? Well, one day I was out on deck and my leg become dangled up in a loose line and it was so badly mangled that they had to take it off at the knee.” His friend agreed that was bad luck. The other one continued. “You see I have a hook for a hand. One day I was out on deck when a shipmate of mine fell overboard. I leaned over as far as I could in a attempt to rescue him and as I extended my hand to him a shark took my hand off.” “My, you really did experience bad luck, the other responded, I see you have a patch over one eye, What happened to your eye?” “Well, I was out on deck again one day and just as I looked up, a seagull that was flying over , unloaded, and got me right in the eye.” “My, My,(not real sailor talk) did that take your eye out?” “No, that was the first day I had my hook.”

DEA officer stops at a ranch in Texas, and talks with an old rancher.. He tells the rancher, “I need to inspect your ranch for illegally grown drugs.” The rancher says, “Okay , but do not go in that field over there,” as he points out the location. The DEA officer verbally explodes saying, “Mister, I have the authority of the Federal Government with me.” Reaching into his rear pants pocket, he removes his badge and proudly displays it to the rancher. “See this badge? This badge means I am allowed to go wherever I wish.... On any land.. No questions asked or answers given. Have I made myself clear? Do you understand? “ The rancher nods politely, apologizes, and goes about his chores. A short time later, the old rancher hears loud screams and sees the DEA officer running for his life chased by the rancher’s big Santa Gertrudis Bull... With every step the bull is gaining ground on the officer, and it seems likely that he’ll get gored before he reaches safety. The officer is clearly terrified. The rancher throws down his tools, runs to the fence and yells at the top of his lungs... “Your badge... Show him your badge!”

Peppers, tomatoes, tobacco contain compounds that reduce risk of Parkinson’s Disease.

Two little boys, ages 8 and 10, are excessively mischievous. They are always getting into trouble and their parents know if any mischief occurs in their town, the two boys are probably involved. The boys’ mother heard that a preacher in town had been successful in disciplining children, so she asked if he would speak with her boys. The preacher agreed, but he asked to see them individually. The mother sent the 8 year old in the morning, with the older boy to see the preacher in the afternoon. The preacher, a huge man with a deep booming voice, sat the younger boy down and asked him sternly, “Do you know where God is, son?” The boy’s mouth dropped open, but he made no response, sitting there wide-eyed with his mouth hanging open. So the preacher repeated the question in an even sterner tone, “Where is God?!” Again, the boy made no attempt to answer. The preacher raised his voice even more and shook his finger in the boy’s face and bellowed, “Where is God?!” The boy screamed & bolted from the room, ran directly home and dove into his closet, slamming the door behind him. When his older brother found him in the closet, he asked “What happened?” The younger brother, gasping for breath, replied, “We are in BIG trouble this time!” “GOD is missing, and they think WE did it!”

DRIVERS IN TRAINING Someone actually complimented me on my driving today. They left a note on my windshield which said: “PARKING FINE” That was nice. I failed my driver’s test. The driver trainer asked me” What do you do at a red light?” I said I usually respond to texts, check my email and Facebook. I never suggested you were a bad driver. I’m sure that mailbox totally swerved into your lane. The police pulled me over and asked me “Do you know how fast you were going? I said obviously not fast enough because you caught me.

A man was crossing a road one day when a frog called out to him and said, “If you kiss me, I’ll turn into a beautiful princess.” He bent over, picked up the frog, and put it in his pocket. The frog spoke up again and said, “If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will tell everyone how smart and brave you are and how you are my hero” The man took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it, and returned it to his pocket. The frog spoke up again and said, “If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will be your loving companion for an entire week.” The man took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it, and returned it to his pocket. The frog then cried out, “If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I’ll stay with you for a year and do ANYTHING you want.” Again the man took the frog out, smiled at it, and put it back into his pocket. Finally, the frog asked, “What is the matter? I’ve told you I’m a beautiful princess, that I’ll stay with you for a year and do anything you want. Why won’t you kiss me?” The man said, “Look, I’m a computer programmer. I don’t have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog is cool.”

“Have you heard about the new shampoo for men who are going bald, called “What’s the Point?”

When it comes to cheering for a hockey team, honestly I’m more of a guy that likes following certain players than teams as a whole, but one team that is one of my favorites to watch lately are the Winnipeg Jets. The Jets bandwagon hasn’t exactly been overcrowded through their playoff-less seasons, that bandwagon has hit it’s share of pot holes over the year but at this rate, it will start filling up in a real hurry. The Jets are playing fast and physical, and are entertaining hockey to watch right now. They’ve been dominant at times this season. If physicality is your thing, you’ll be an instant Jets fan. Their forwards and defense alike are well-versed at using their shoulders as well as their hands, and their games invariably feature several big hits. In short, if you’ve just joined the NHL as a fan or are looking for a bandwagon to hop on (no judgment here) the Winnipeg Jets have what you’re looking for. One of the NHL’s most exciting teams has also been among its most successful so far. So what more could you ask for in a favorite team? Exciting hockey at every position and a team geared towards putting as many pucks in the net as possible, have made hockey as fun in Winnipeg as it’s ever been since the days of Morris Lukowich. Fans looking for a new team to adopt should get in on that fun. The Jets have given their fans plenty to cheer about this year, and a long playoff run will add more fans to the increasing Jets bandwagon. But come summer time and the CFL season starts you can still hate Winnipeg and those godless Blue Bombers. Greg Buchanan For The Weekly Bean

Muldoon lived alone in the Irish countryside with only a pet dog for company. One day the dog died, and Muldoon went to the parish priest and asked, Father, me dog is dead. Could ya’ be saying’ A mass for the poor creature?’

Did you ever notice that when you blow in your dogs face he gets mad at you, but when you take him on a car ride, he sticks his head out the window? How is it one careless match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box to start a campfire? Do hungry crows have ravenous appetites? Why do people who know the least know it the loudest? Is it possible to be totally partial?

Father Patrick replied, ‘I’m afraid not; we cannot have services for an animal in the church. But there are some Baptists down the lane, and there’s no tellin’ what they believe. Maybe they’ll do something for the creature.’ Muldoon said, ‘I’ll go right away Father. Do ya’ think *£5,000 is enough to donate to them for the service?’ Father Patrick exclaimed, ‘Sweet Mary and Joseph. Why didn’t ya tell me the dog was Catholic?’
