A rising tide lifts all bloats

We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)

And over there is a beauty that belongs to the head of Goldman Sachs. And see that huge yacht beyond it? That's the pride and joy of the top seller at Prudential-Bache."

His friend was silent. Goodman turned to look at him and noticed a pained expression on his face. "What's the matter," Goodman asked, "are you not feeling well?"

"I was just curious," his friend replied. "Are there any customers' yachts?"
