A boy and girl in high school had been dating for a while, and she invited him on a weekend trip to her family’s lake house so he could meet her parents. She also said she was ready to go all the way at last.
The boy was so excited that he ran to the drugstore to buy condoms. The pharmacist asked, “Do you want the 3-pack, the 6-pack, or the 10-pack?”
“Better give me the 10-pack,” he said. “I plan on getting busy all weekend!”
When he arrived at the lake house, the whole family was sitting at the dinner table, about to pray before the meal. The girl’s father asked him to say grace.
The boy bowed his head and prayed and prayed. Almost ten minutes went by.
The girl leaned over to him and whispered, “You never told me you were so religious.”
The boy whispered back, “You never told me your dad was a pharmacist.”

This is a really well done promo for the new Twin Peaks series. Just one month away!

WARNING: This completely spoils the main plot of the first two seasons. Don't watch if you're not caught up. (But come on, it's been 25 years. Vader is also Luke's father.)

A businessman on a trip suspected his wife of being unfaithful, so he called home to check on her. A strange woman answered the phone.
“Who are you?” he asked.
The woman replied, “I'm the maid.”
“But we don't have a maid,” he said.
“I was hired this morning by the lady of the house.”
“Okay,” he said, “where is she?”
“Who wants to know?” asked the maid.
“This is the man of the house.”
“Oh! Uh, she just went upstairs with a guy I thought was the man of the house.”
Furious, the man asked the maid if she wanted to make a quick $10,000. She agreed and asked what she had to do. He told her to go into his den, get his gun, and shoot his two-timing wife and her lover.
The maid put the phone down, and a minute later the man heard two shots. The maid came back and asked him what to do with the bodies.
“Put them in a garbage bag and dump them in the swimming pool,” he said.
The maid said, “But we don’t have a swimming pool.”
There was a long pause. Then the man said, “Is this 555-6547?”

“Sister,” he said, “the speed limit on this road is 65 mph. You’re only going 22.”
“I’m sorry, officer," she replied, "but we saw a lot of signs that said 22."
“Those indicate the highway number,” he pointed out.
As he turned away, he noticed three nuns in the back seat who were pale and shaking.

At the county fair, a pilot offered to fly people in his old open-cockpit plane for $5. A farmer and his wife couldn’t decide whether to try it.
The pilot said, “If you’re good passengers and don’t do any backseat driving, I’ll take you up for nothing.” So he took the couple up and did some fancy flying. When he landed, he said to the farmer, “You did great for your first flight. I didn’t hear a word out of you.”
“It wasn’t easy,” said the farmer. “I almost said something back there when my wife fell out.”

Frustrated, Sister Mary went out into the garden. There she ran into Sister Joan, who said, “Looks like you got up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.”
She stormed back inside and bumped into the Mother Superior, who opened her mouth to speak.
