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.)

A woman was shopping at her local supermarket. She bought a half-gallon of 2% milk, a carton of eggs, quart of orange juice, a head of romaine lettuce, a 2 lb. can of coffee, a 1lb. package of bacon, three onions and a tomato.

As she was loading her items on the conveyor belt at the check out, a drunk was standing behind her. The drunk swayed and watched intently as each item moved to the cashier.

While the cashier was ringing up her purchases, the drunk straightened up, looked at the woman, and calmly said, "You are single, aren't you?"

The woman was a bit surprised at the question. But she was equally intrigued by the drunk's intuition, since she was indeed single.

She looked over the six items on the belt and saw nothing unusual about her selections that could have tipped off the drunken observer as to her marital status.

Curiosity getting the better of her, she said, "Well, you know what? You're absolutely correct. I am single. But how on earth did you know that?"

The drunk replied, "’Cause you're ugly."
