A couple of women moved in across the hall from me. One is a middle-aged gym teacher and the other is social worker in her mid twenties. These two women go everywhere together, and I've never seen a man go into their apartment or come out. Do you think they could be Lebanese?
Dear Abby, What can I do about all the sex, nudity, language and violence on my VCR?
Dear Abby, I have a man I never could trust. He cheats so much I'm not even sure this baby I'm carrying is his.
Dear Abby, I am a twenty-three-year-old liberated woman who has been on the pill for two years. It's getting expensive, and I think my boyfriend should share half the cost, but I don't know him well enough to discuss money with him.
Dear Abby, I suspected that my husband had been fooling around, and when I confronted him with the evidence he denied everything and said it would never happen again. Should I believe him?
Dear Abby, Our son writes that he is taking Judo. Why would a boy who was raised in a good Christian home turn against his own religion?
Dear Abby, I joined the Navy to see the world. I've seen it. Now, how do I get out?
Dear Abby, My 40-year-old son has been paying a psychiatrist $50 an hour every week for two-and-a-half years. He must be crazy.
Dear Abby, Do you think it would be all right if I gave my doctor a little gift? I tried for years to get pregnant and couldn't, but he finally did it.
Dear Abby, My mother is mean and short-tempered. Do you think she is going through her mental pause?
Dear Abby, You told some woman whose husband had lost all interest in sex to send him to a doctor. Well, my husband lost all interest in sex years ago and he IS a doctor. What now?
SOCIAL SECURITY SEX
Two men were talking. So, how's your sex life?"
"Oh, nothing special. I'm having Social Security sex."
"Social Security sex?"
"Yeah, you know; I get a little each month, but not enough to live on!"
A wife went in to see a therapist and said, "I've got a big problem,
doctor. Every time we're in bed and my husband climaxes, he lets out this
ear splitting yell."
"My dear," the shrink said, "that's completely natural. I don't see what
the problem is." "The problem is," she complained, "it wakes me up!"
Tired of a listless sex life, the man came right out and asked his wife
during a recent lovemaking session, "How come you never tell me when you
have an orgasm?"
She glanced at him casually and replied, "You're never home!"
A man was in a terrible accident, and his "manhood" was mangled and torn
from his body. His doctor assured him that modern medicine could give him
back his manhood, but that his insurance wouldn't cover the surgery since
it was considered cosmetic. The doctor said the cost would be $3,500 for
"small, $6,500 for "medium, $14,000 for "large." The man was sure he would
want a medium or large, but the doctor urged him to talk it over with his
wife before he made any decision. The man called his wife on the phone and
explained their options. The doctor came back into the room, and found the
man looking dejected.
"Well, what have the two of you decided?" asked the doctor.
The man answered, "She'd rather remodel the kitchen."
WEDDING ANNIVERSARY SEX
A husband and his wife had a bitter quarrel on the day of their 40th
wedding anniversary. The husband yells, "When you die, I'm getting you a
headstone that reads:
'Here Lies My Wife-Cold As Ever'."
"Yeah," she replies, "when you die, I'm getting you a headstone that reads:
Here Lies My Husband - Stiff At Last.'"
WOMEN'S HUMOROUS SEX
My husband came home with a tube of K Y jelly and said, "This will make you
happy tonight." He was right.
When he went out of the bedroom, I squirted it all over the doorknobs. He
couldn't get back in.
There is a family gathering, with all the
generations around the table.
The teenagers smuggle in a Viagra tablet and put
it in Grandpa's drink.
After a while, Grandpa excused himself because he
has to go to the bathroom.
When he returned, however, his trousers were wet
"What happened, Grandpa," asked his concerned
"Well," he answered, "I had to go to the bathroom.
So I took it out, but then I saw that it wasn't
mine, so I put it back.

"Dating" A sweet little old lady surprised the young social worker that was interviewing her when she volunteered, " I do believe in sex on the first date you know. " - "That's pretty modern thinking for an 80 year old woman." the social worker commented. - "Well honey, you know one can never be sure of havin' a 2nd date with these old guys....

A peculiar thing was happening at my house.
Tampons were disappearing! A few months ago I went to my
cupboard to get out a tampon,and there was only one left.
I could have sworn I had just bought a box the month before.
So, I go back to the store, buy a new box and forget about it.
The next month I go back to the cupboard.....
and again....there is only one tampon left again.
What's going on here? Gremlins?
I go to the store and buy another box, and forget about it. I
decided to clean out my two youngest sons closet and at the bottom
of their closet are the wrappers, applicators and the tampons
I am starting to freak! What are they doing with them?I get a hold of
and tell myself that I am an adult and can handle this, despite the
thoughts running through my mind. I'm thinking,
"Do I have enough money saved up in the bank for major therapy?" I go to
the top of the stairs and yell for my two youngest sons to "come here!"
They march up the stairs and find me in their
room staring into the bottom of their closet.
I said "What are you doing with those? Those are mine!"
My 12 year old looks like a deer caught in the headlights and is silent.
My 10 year old looks at me all innocent and says.

What do you use them for?" To which I replied:

One day, Moishe surprises his friends by announcing, loud
and clear, "You know what? I've now become an optimist."

why are you looking so worried?"
Moishe replies, "Do you think it's easy being an optimist?"
Our college just completed a new three-story building. While
walking down a hall on the 2nd floor, I overheard two students say, "I
really like the skylights on the 3rd floor." "Me too," remarked the
second student. "I don't know why they didn't just put some on the 2nd
My fiddle teacher was teaching a large group class. She showed them
her violin and said, "This violin was made in the early 1800s." Someone
in the audience raised their hand and asked, "So you got it used?"
A few years back, I was in high school and we were celebrating Holy
Week (the week before Easter) and we were watching a presentation on the
last few days of Jesus. The teacher used a clip from the movie "Jesus of
Nazareth" to make his point. As we were watching Jesus carry his cross,
a girl in my class asked, "Is this live footage?"
I work as a computer technician for a large retail chain, servicing
customer's computers. One day I answer the phone, and the Induhvidual
asks, "Do you guys sell Ethernet cables?" I said that we do, and he
asks, "How much is it?" I asked, "How long do you want it?" He
responded, "Um, a while I guess. I want to buy it." I said, "No, I mean
how long as in the length of the cable." This elicited total silence on
his end, so I informed him that we sell a 7-foot cable for $24.99. He
asked, "When do I have to return it?" I told him to keep it as long as
My Kentuckian sister-in-law's young daughter recently married a
Mexican immigrant. They promptly had their first child. Sometime after
the birth, a doctor walked into the recovering mom's hospital room and

sister-in-law asked, "Does that mean she will be more white than

it was because that's where the sun sets.
A newly hired manager confessed that he was considering getting a
second job in order to pay off his wife's huge cell phone bill. When
asked why she went so far over her monthly time allocation, his response
was that when she bought her cell phone, they told her that weekends and
evening time was free. Since she works an odd schedule -- Sunday through
Thursday -- she assumed that Fridays counted as her 'weekend day.' So
she used the phone the entire time as she drove to and from Las Vegas.

My mother-in-law is not known for her driving skills. So it came as no
surprise when she was in another accident a couple of months back.
She came out of a side street and ran slam-bang into the town
"Oh Doc!" she exclaimed, "I'm so awfully sorry!"
"That's perfectly all right," he said, "It was all my fault."
"I don't know how you can say that. I'm sure it was entirely my
"No, no, ma'am it was my fault. I'll take the entire blame."
"But why is it your fault? I ran into you, didn't I?"
"Yes, you did. But I saw you driving downtown half an hour ago, and I
plenty of time to take my car home and put it in the garage, but like
fool, I didn't do it!"
After four years of separation, my wife and
I finally divorced amicably. I wanted to date
again, but I had no idea of how to start, so
I decided to look in the personals column
of the local newspaper. After reading through
all the listings, I circled three that seemed
possible in terms of age and interest, but I
put off calling them.
Two days later, there was a message on
my answering machine from my ex-wife.
"I came over to your house to borrow some
tools today and saw the ads you circled in
the paper. Don't call the one in the second
column. It's me."
When Nathan Radlich's house was burgled, thieves left his TV, his VCR, and
even his watch. What they did take was a "generic white cardboard box
filled with grayish-white powder." (That at least is the way the police
described it.) A spokesman for the Fort Lauderdale police said, "that it
looked similar to cocaine, and they'd probably thought they'd hit the big
Then Nathan stood in front of the TV cameras and pleaded with the burglars,
"Please return the cremated remains of my sister, Gertrude. She died three
Well, the next morning the bullet-riddled corpse of a drug dealer known as
Hoochie Pevens was found on Nathan's doorstep. The cardboard box was there,
too - with about half of Gertrude's ashes remaining and there was this note
"Hoochie sold us the bogus blow, so we wasted Hoochie. Sorry we snorted
your sister. No hard feelings. Have a nice day."
Robinson Crusoe style, the shipwrecked golfer made the best of

"Too kind, it's very rough and ready," the goatskin-clad golfer
responded. Then he smiled slyly: "I am however, quite proud of the water

At his request, each morning three-year-old Ray's
mother pinned a bath towel to the back shoulders
of his size two T-shirt.
Immediately in his young imaginative mind the towel
became a brilliant magic blue and red cape.
And he became Superman.
Outfitted each day in his "cape," Ray's days were
packed with adventure and daring escapades.
He was Superman.
This fact was clearly pointed out last fall when his
mother enrolled him in kindergarten class. During the
course of the interview, the teacher asked Ray his name.
"Superman," he answered politely and without pause.
The teacher smiled, cast an appreciative glance at his
mother, and asked again, "Your real name, please."
Again, Ray answered, "Superman."
Realizing the situation demanded more authority, or
maybe to hide amusement, the teacher closed her
eyes for a moment, then in a voice quite stern, said,
"I will have to have your real name for the records."
Sensing he'd have to play straight with the teacher,
Ray slid his eyes around the room, hunched closer to her,
and patting a corner of frayed towel at his shoulder,
answered in a voice hushed with conspiracy,
