Last Friday Smile of 2007!

Al and Joe are bungee-jumping one day. Al says to Joe,"you know, we could make a lot of money running our own bungee jumping service in Mexico." Joe thinks this is a great idea, so they pool their money and buy everything they'll need: a tower, an elastic cord, insurance, etc.

They travel to a Mexican city and begin to set up in the middle of the town square.

As they are constructing the tower a crowd begins to assemble. Slowly, more and more people gather to watch them work. When they had finished, they looked down and realized there was a huge crowd. They are imagining all the money they will make from this trip.

Joe says to Al, "Man this was a great idea. Look at that crowd. We're gonna be rich!"

Joe agrees and says, "What do you think we should do to get them excited and ready to come up here and jump?"

"How about we give them a demonstration?" says Joe.

Al agrees and after a short discussion they agree since it was Al's money-making idea he should have the pleasure of introducing Bungee-Jumping to the crowd.

He secures the rope to his safety belt makes sure everything else is in place. He steps onto the platform, turns to Joe smiles and says, "Here's our first step towards retirement."

As he leaps Joe yells, "Go for it man!" Al bounces at the end of the cord, but when he comes back up, Joe notices that he has a few cuts and scratches. Joe reaches out to grab him, unfortunately, he isn't able to catch him, and Al falls again.

He bounces up and comes back up again. This time he is bruised and bleeding. Again Joe reaches out to grab, but misses him. Al falls again and bounces back up. This time he comes back pretty messed up. He's got a couple of broken bones and is almost unconscious.

Luckily Joe catches him this time and says, "What happened? Was the cord too long?"

Barely able to speak, Al gasps, "No, the bungee cord was fine. It was the crowd.....WHAT THE HELL IS A PIÑATA???"

A big Texan stopped at a local restaurant following a day roaming around in Mexico .
While sipping his tequila, he noticed a sizzling, scrumptious looking platter being served at the next table. Not only did it look good, the smell was wonderful. He asked the waiter, "What is that you just served?"

The waiter replied, "Ah senor, you have excellent taste! Those are called Cojones de Toro, bull's testicles from the bull fight this morning. A delicacy!"

The cowboy said, "What the heck, bring me an order."

The waiter replied, "I am so sorry senor. There is only one serving per day because there is only one bull fight each morning. If you come early and place your order, we will be sure to save you this delicacy."

The next morning, the cowboy returned, placed his order, and that evening was served the one and only special delicacy of the day. After a few bites, inspecting his platter, he called to the waiter and said, "These are delicious, but they are much, much smaller than the ones I saw you serve yesterday."

The waiter shrugged his shoulders and replied, "Si, Senor. Sometimes the bull wins."


Have a great weekend everyone!
All the Best for this New Year!
May 2008 be filled with lots of love, health, peace & money!
But mostly time to enjoy it!
