The madam opened the brothel door to see a rather dignified, well-dressed good looking man in his late 40’s or early 50’s.
“May I help you?” she asked.
“I want to see Valerie,” the man replied.
“Sir, Valerie is one of our most expensive ladies. Perhaps you would prefer someone else,” said the madam.
“No, I must see Valerie,” was the man’s reply.
Just then, Valerie appeared and announced to the man that she charged $1,000 a visit. Without hesitation, the man pulled out ten one-hundred dollar bills, gave them to Valerie, and they went upstairs. After an hour, the man calmly left.
The next night, the same man appeared again, demanding to see Valerie. Valerie explained that none had ever come back two nights in a row–too expensive–and there were no discounts. The price was still $1,000. Again the man pulled out the money, gave it to Valerie and they went upstairs. After an hour, he left.
The following night the man was there again. Everyone was astounded that he had come for the third consecutive night, but he paid Valerie and they went upstairs. After their session, Valerie questioned the man. “No one has ever been with me three nights in a row. Where are you from?” she asked.
The man replied, ” South Carolina.”
“Really” she said. “I have family in South Carolina.”
“I know,” the man said. “Your father died, and I am your sister’s attorney. She asked me to give you your $3,000 inheritance.”
The moral of the story is that three things in life are certain:
1. Death
2. Taxes
3. Being screwed by a lawyer

Would "outasight" (slang) be considered one or two words?

I recently got a 1999 Chevy K1500 Suburban LS http://www.automobile-catalog.com/auta_details1.php and my insurance only went up about $30 (USD) per month from the 1988 Volvo I used to own (same insurance company).
Regarding Wiggo's comment below, I used to (years ago, in the 1980s) have a (US version) 1963 Falcon Futura wagon; that was the 1st time I ever changed out a clutch plate, pressure plate & throwout bearing. It was given to my ex and I by my brother-in-law after he got it from his stepdad; while his stepdad (my father-in-law) had it, it was in almost pristine condition for its age; by the time we got it, it looked its age: rusty, paint faded, headliner falling apart, etc.
This vehicle (my current one) is in MUCH better condition; it's got some minor issues, but fortunately nothing major that I have to deal with. I did recently change out the Idle Air Control, which had been 'throwing codes', but I guess I forgot to disconnect the battery while doing so, because it's (the engine & transmission) running a bit high on the idle on startup (starts to 2K RPM, then slowly drops down to about 800 RPM).

An atheist scientist came to God and said, "We've figured out how to make a man without you."

God said, "OK, let me see you do it."

So the atheist bent down to the ground and scooped up a handful.

But God stopped him and said, "Oh, no you don't. Get your own dirt!"

A husband and wife who work for the circus go to an adoption agency. Social workers there raise doubts about their suitability.

The couple produces photos of their 50-foot motor home, which is clean and well maintained and equipped with a beautiful nursery.

The social workers raise concerns about the education a child would receive while in the couple's care.

"We've arranged for a full-time tutor who will teach the child all the usual subjects along with French, Mandarin, and computer skills."

Then the social workers express concern about a child being raised in a circus environment.

"Our nanny is a certified expert in pediatric care, welfare, and diet."

The social workers are finally satisfied.

They ask, "What age child are you hoping to adopt?"

"It doesn't really matter, as long as the kid fits in the cannon."

There once was a religious young woman who went to Confession.

Upon entering the confessional, she said, 'Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.’

The priest said, 'Confess your sins and be forgiven.’

The young woman said, 'Last night my boyfriend made mad passionate love to me seven times.’

The priest thought long and hard and then said, 'Squeeze seven lemons into a glass and then drink the juice.’

The young woman asked, 'Will this cleanse me of my sins?’

The priest said, 'No, but it will wipe that smile off of your face.’
