Chocolate Tips

If you get melted chocolate all over your hands, you're eating it too slowly.

Chocolate covered raisins, cherries, orange slices and strawberries all count 
as fruit, so eat as many as you want.

Problem: How to get 2 pounds of chocolate home from the store in hot car. 
Solution: Eat them in the parking lot.

Diet tip: Eat a chocolate bar before each meal. It'll take the edge off 
your appetite and you'll eat less.

A nice box of chocolates provide your total daily intake of calories in one 
place. Isn't that handy?

If you can't eat all your chocolate, it will keep in the freezer. But if you 
can't eat all your chocolate, it may be a sign of a deeper problem.

If calories are an issue, store your chocolate on top of the fridge. Calories 
are afraid of heights and they will jump out of the chocolate to protect 

Equal amounts of dark chocolate and white chocolate is a balanced diet.

Two phrases: Money talks. Chocolate sings.

The preservatives in chocolate make you look younger.

Q. Why is there no such organization as Chocoholics Anonymous?
A. Because no one wants to quit.

If not for chocolate, there would be no need for control top pantyhose. 
An entire garment industry would be devastated.

Put "eat chocolate" at the top of your list of things to do today.
That way, at least you'll get one thing done.

Catlette's Soliloquy by Shakespaw

To go outside, Or to remain within: 
That is the question; 
Whether 'tis better for a cat to suffer 
The cuffs and buffets of inclement weather 
That Nature rains on those who roam abroad, 
Or take a nap upon a scrap of carpet, 
And by so dozing melt the solid hours 
That clog the clock's bright gears with sullen time 
and stall the dinner bell. 
To sit, to stare 
Outdoors, and by a stare to seem to state 
A wish to venture forth without delay, 
Then when the portal's opened up, to stand 
As if transformed by doubt. 
To prowl; to sleep; 
To choose not knowing when we may once more 
Our readmittance gain: aye, there's the hairball; 
For if paw were shaped to turn a knob, 
Or work a lock or slip a window-catch, 
And going out and coming in were made 
as simple as the breaking of a bowl, 
What cat would bear the household's petty plagues 
The cook's well-practiced kicks, the butler's broom, 
The infant's careless pokes, the tickled ears, 
The trampled tail, and all the daily shocks 
That fur is heir to, when, of his own free will, 
He might his exodus or entrance make 
With a mere mitten? 
Who would spaniels fear, 
Or strays trespassing from a neighbor's yard, 
But that the dread of our unheeded cries 
And scratches at a barricaded door 
No claw can open up, dispels our nerve 
And makes us rather bear our humans' faults 
Than run away to unguessed miseries? 
Thus caution doth make house cats of us all; 
And thus the bristling hair of resolution 
Is softened up with the pale brush of thought, 
And since our choices hinge on weighty things, 
We pause on the threshold of decision.

Where Dogs Came From and Why We Have Cats

A newly discovered chapter in the Book of Genesis has provided the answer to "Where do pets come from?"

Adam said, "Lord, when I was in the garden, you walked with me every day. Now I do not see you anymore. I am lonesome here & it is difficult for me to remember how much you love me."

And God said, "No problem! I will create a companion for you that will be with you forever & who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will love me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are & will love you as I do, in spite of yourself."

And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam. And it was a good animal. And God was pleased. And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam & he wagged his tail. And Adam said, "Lord, I have already named all the animals in the Kingdom & I cannot think of a name for this new animal."

And God said, "No problem! Because I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you will call him DOG."

And Dog lived with Adam & was a companion to him & loved him. And Adam was comforted. And God was pleased. And Dog was content & wagged his tail. After a while, it came to pass that Adam's guardian angel came to the Lord & said, "Lord, Adam has become filled with pride. He struts & preens like a peacock & he believes he is worthy of adoration. Dog has indeed taught him that he is loved, but perhaps too well."

And the Lord said, "No problem! I will create for him a companion who will be with him forever & who will see him as he is. The companion will remind him of his limitations, so he will know that he is not always worthy of adoration."

And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam. And Cat would not obey Adam. And when Adam gazed into Cat's eyes, he was reminded that he was not the supreme being. And Adam learned humility. 

And God was pleased. And Adam was greatly improved. And Dog was happy. And the cat didn't give a damn one way or the other.


Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson went on a camping trip. After a good meal and a bottle of wine they lay down for the night, and went to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes awoke and nudged his faithful friend.

 "Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see." 

Watson replied, "I see millions and millions of stars."

 "What does that tell you?"

 Watson pondered for a minute. "Astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three. Theologically, I can see that God is all powerful and that we are small and insignificant. Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. What does it tell you?"

Holmes was silent for a minute, then spoke. "Watson, you idiot. Some bastard has stolen our tent."

"The Hungry Fly"

There was a fly buzzing around a barn one day when he happened on a pile of fresh cow manure. Since it had been hours since his last meal, he flew down and began to eat. 

He ate and ate and ate. Finally, he decided he had eaten enough and tried to fly away. He had eaten too much, though, and could not get off the ground.

As he looked around wondering what to do now, he spotted a pitchfork leaning up against the wall. He climbed to the top of the handle and jumped off, thinking that once he got airborne, he would be able to take flight. Unfortunately, he was wrong and dropped like a rock, splatting when he hit the floor. Dead.

The moral to the story is: Never fly off the handle when you know you're full of shit.

Thinking quickly, he threw together a daiquiri made with hickory nuts and set it on the bar.
