The most touching speech made by a bride's father to the groom...

The boss of a Madison Avenue advertising agency called a spontaneous staff meeting in the middle of a particularly stressful week. (This is one pretty sharp boss!) When everyone gathered, the boss, who understood the benefits of having fun, told the burnt out staff the purpose of the meeting was to have a quick contest. The theme: Viagra advertising slogans. The only rule was they had to use past ad slogans, originally written for other products, that captured the essence of Viagra. Slight variations were acceptable.

About 7 minutes later, the top 10 were:
 
10. Viagra, Whaazzzz up!
 
9. Viagra, The quicker pecker picker upper.
 
8. Viagra, like a rock!
 
7. Viagra, When it absolutely, positively has to be there overnight.
 
6. Viagra, Be all that you can be.
 
5. Viagra, Reach out and touch someone.
 
4. Viagra, Strong enough for a man, but made for a woman.
 
3. Viagra, Home of the whopper!
 
2. Viagra, We bring good things to Life!

And the unanimous number one slogan:

1. This is your peepee... This is your peepee on drugs.

EVER SINCE I WAS A CHILD, I'VE ALWAYS HAD A FEAR OF SOMEONE UNDER MY BED AT NIGHT. SO I WENT TO A SHRINK AND TOLD HIM:

'I've got problems. Every time I go to bed I think there's somebody under it. I'm scared. I think I'm going crazy.' 

'Just put yourself in my hands for one year,' said the shrink. 'Come talk to me three times a week and we should be able to get rid of those fears.' 

'How much do you charge?'
'Eighty dollars per visit,' replied the doctor.
'I'll sleep on it,' I said. 

Six months later the doctor met me on the street. 'Why didn't you come to see me about those fears you were having?' he asked. 

'Well, Eighty bucks a visit three times a week for a year is an awful lot of money! A bartender cured me for $10. I was so happy to have saved all that money that I went and bought me a new pickup!' 

'Is that so!' With a bit of an attitude he said, 'and how, may I ask, did a bartender cure you?' 

'He told me to cut the legs off the bed! Ain't nobody under there now!'

FORGET THE SHRINKS.  HAVE A DRINK & TALK TO A BARTENDER!

NEW  Wine for Seniors,   I kid you not.....

A single glass  at night could mean a peaceful, uninterrupted night's  sleep. 

Clare Valley  vintners in  South Australia, which primarily produce  Pinot  Blanc, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Grigio wines,  has  developed a new hybrid grape  that  acts as an anti-diuretic. It is expected to reduce the number of trips older  people have to make to the bathroom during the night.

 The new  wine will be marketed as:

A first-grade teacher, Ms Brooks, was having trouble with one of her students. The teacher asked,  'Harry, what's your problem?' 

Harry answered, ' I'm too smart for the 1st grade.  My sister is in the 3rd grade and I'm smarter than she is!  I think I should be in the 3rd grade too!'

Ms. Brooks had had enough.  She took Harry to the principal's office. 
While Harry waited in the outer office, the teacher explained to the principal what the situation was.  The principal told Ms. Brooks he would give the boy a test.  If he failed to answer any of his questions he was to go back to the 1st grade and behave. She agreed.

Harry was brought in and the conditions were
explained to him and he  agreed to take the test. 

Principal: 
'What is 3 x 3?'
Harry: 
'9.'
Principal: 
'What is 6 x 6?' 
Harry: 
'36.'
And so it went with every question the principal thought a 3rd grader should know.

The principal looks at Ms. Brooks and tells her, 'I think Harry can go to the 3rd grade'  Ms. Brooks says to the principal,'Let me ask him some questions..'

The principal and Harry both agreed. 

Ms. Brooks asks,
'What does a cow have four of that I have only two of?'
Harry, after a moment: 'Legs.' 
Ms. Brooks: 'What is in your pants that you have but I do not have?'

The principal wondered why would she ask such a question!  
Harry replied: 'Pockets.' 
Ms. Brooks: 'What does a dog do that a man steps into?'  
Harry: 
'Pants.'  

The principal sat forward with his mouth hanging open. 

Ms. Brooks:'What goes in hard and pink then comes out soft and sticky?' 

The principal's eyes opened really wide and before he could stop the answer, Harry replied,
'Bubble gum.'

Ms. Brooks: 'What does a man do standing up, a woman does sitting down and a dog does on three legs?'

Harry: 'Shake hands .'
The principal was trembling.
 
Ms. Brooks: 'What word starts with an 'F' and ends in 'K' that means a lot of heat and excitement?'  

Harry: 
'Firetruck.'  

The principal breathed a sigh of relief and told the  teacher,'Put Harry in the fifth-grade, I got the last seven questions wrong.

Charles O'Rear is the photographer who took Bliss, the image that became the desktop of every single Windows XP computer in the world. Billions saw it and probably think the photo is so perfect and colorful that it is computer generated—or at least Photoshopped. O'Rear reveals the origin of the photo in this video.
