Greetings workers of the world! As you know, I just re-send the best joke(s) I get from the emails I gather from people all over the world. Then I add my own original drawings (which I create on the spot as I put this email together) to give it a personal touch. Most of the time I create this a few hours before Thursday midnight so if you catch a few typos, please forgive my tired mind and fingers. If this is your first time to receive this, welcome to a new and (hopefully) entertaining addiction.

The sweltering heat is eating me up! But my main concern is my back. I think I sprained it playing basketball. So this morning I went to Dr. Klye, my Chiropractor, If you've never had your "bones cracked," it's quite an experience. It's magical really. I feel a few inches taller and a lot more stress-free. The Dr. said I need to nurse my sprained back so I guess I will need to disappoint my basketball "fans" (yeah right!) this weeekend. (Hey! It's always nice to pretend you're so important)

Thanks to this week's winners: Joji of Antipolo, Rodney of Oakbank, Don of Kewlona, Dan of Pasadena and Mike of New York.

Of course a big thanks to Steven who comes up with all these original jokes for "Life on the Lopside." Steven is one of those looking for work right now. He's willing to do anything but it has to be in the Pasadena area because his car broke down. If anyone can help, I'm sure he will appreciate the referral. Also, if anyone knows how to get this cartoon syndicated, please let me know..

Life on the Lopside

Old Goats
sent by Rodney of Oakbank, Canada

Groups of Americans were traveling by tour bus through Holland . As they stopped at a cheese farm, a young guide led them through the process of cheese making, explaining that goat's milk was used. She showed the group a lovely hillside where many goats were grazing. 'These,' she explained, 'are the older goats put out to pasture when they no longer produce.' She then asked, 'What do you do in America with your old goats?'
A spry old lady answered, 'They send us on bus tours!'

Creating Balance
sent by Mindy of La Crescenta, CA

God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day.

He inquired, "Where have you been?"

God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."

Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"

"It's a planet," replied God, and I've put life on it. I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to test Balance."

"Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm still confused."

God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth. "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor. Over here I've placed a continent of white people, and over there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things."

God continued pointing to different countries. "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and covered in ice."

The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land area and said, "What's that one?"

"That's Wisconsin, the most glorious place on earth. There are beautiful rivers and streams, lakes, forests, and hills. The people from Wisconsin are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to travel the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things. Champions shall come from here!"

Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked, "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance."

God smiled, "I will create Minnesota, wait till you see the clowns I put there. They will field a football team to provide entertainment, they will wear purple and play in a domed

Michael inquisitively asked, "Why a domed stadium?"

God chuckled and said, "You see Michael,...even I don't want to watch them play football."

Videos of the week:

Best Knockout Ever
Sent by Don of Kewlona, BC

Best Knockout

Rare conclusion to a kick boxing ring. You can probably guess what will happen but it's still fascinating to watch.


Sent by Dan of Pasadena

Dan said: " In my younger days this was no problem, I always ran as if I Stole something!"

Ah yes ... those were the days when we could run and jump and leap tall buildings. But these two guys are simply amazing. I think this kind of sport was inspired by Spiderman. These guys are one of the best I've seen.

Future Shock is Here
Sent by Mike of New York

Did you know

Not exactly good news and not sure if some of the claims can be substantiated but it does make you think.

Makes you feel rather insignificant if you keep on comparing with others and especially if you don't have any concept of your role in His BIG plan then you will really get depressed. Maybe it's time to sort this out first.

Give us a sense of humor, Lord. Give us the grace to see a joke,
To get some humor out of life. And pass it on to other folk
