While you were working ...

Today's news you might've missed:

  • Is there anything cuter than a boy band cuddling with giant pandas? The  members of the Backstreet Boys got to hold them while visiting China's Giant Panda Breeding Research Institute in Chengdu. They should really be more careful the next time they decide to hang out with adorable animals - they might melt the Internet!
  • How's this for a fun Rihanna fact: Out of the singer's seven studio releases, only one didn't sell more than a million. The 25-year-old just notched her sixth platinum album this week with her latest release, "Unapologetic." [Billboard]
  • Justin Timberlake entered a spelling bee too once upon a time - but the word "wharf" took him down. [Page Six]
  • Whatever is going on between Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth, Cyrus has made one thing very clear: She's still rocking her ring. [People]
  • Jeff Probst on that one time he went on his first and last date with Katie Couric: "What I remember most about the date is how nervous I was and how little I offered to the conversation. It was like I forgot how to go on a date." Ouch! [Us Weekly]

    aint Peter is watching the gates of Heaven, but he really has to go the bathroom. He asks Jesus to watch the gates for a few minutes, and Jesus says "Fine." St. Pete takes the book which lists everyone who's supposed to get into Heaven with him to the bathroom to have something to read.�

    As Jesus is standing there, he sees this old man leading a donkey up from Earth to Heaven. He notices the old man has carpenter's tools with him. When the old man gets to the gates, Jesus tells him he doesn't have the book, but asks the old man to explain his life and why he felt he should be admitted into heaven. Jesus would then make the decision whether or not to let him in based on the story.�

    The man explains "In English, my name would be Joseph, but I didn't live in America or England. I lived a modest life, making things out of wood. I'm not remembered very well by most people, but almost everyone has heard of my son. I call him my son, but I was more of a Dad to him, he didn't really come into this world in the usual way.�

    I sent my son out to be among the people of the World. He was ridiculed by many, and was even known to associate himself with some pretty unsavory characters, although he himself tried to be honest and perfect. My single biggest reason for trying to get into Heaven is to be reunited with my son."�

    Jesus is awestruck by the man's story. He looks into the old man's eyes and asks, "Are you MY earthly father?"�

    The old man's face brightens; he looks at Jesus, and asks, "Are you my Pinocchio?"

    An orthopedic surgeon was moving to a new office, with the help of his staff. One of the nurses sat the display skeleton in the front of her car, a bony arm across the back of the seat.
    On the drive across town, she stopped at a traffic light, and the stares of the people in the neighboring car compelled her to roll down her window and yell, I’m delivering him to my doctor’s office.” The other driver leaned out of is window. “I hate to tell you, lady,” he said, “but I think it’s too late!”

      After a lady’s car had leaked motor oil on her cement driveway, she bought a large bag of cat litter to soak it up. It worked so well, that she went back to the store to get another bag to finish the job. The clerk remembered her. Looking thoughtfully at her purchase, he said, “Lady, if that were my cat, I’d put him outside!”

      Your obsession with my "orientation" is more telling about YOUR OWN.
      Why does it matter to you or anyone else that I am gay? That is none of your business, bigot.
      But of course, to a looser such as yourself with no life outside of your mother’s basement, what
      more can we expect? LOL

    I'm a single mom from detroit shunned by men, so true to stereotype I have a relationship with the government as my provider instead. Despite the failings of my ideas clearly evident in detroit I am still a rabid sozialist and I will repeat 0bama talking points here all day, predictable as pie, since the new TJI moderator has grown sick of me!

  7. Save the pandas

    While I know that it's vogue to support gay, interracial, and all other kinds of relations, I really think the backstreet boys shouldn't breed the pandas. They can breed sheep and goats, but pandas are endangered and should be encouraged to breed with other pandas.

      I will be more than happy to oblige you on your request. I had been posting daily doses of jokes on the TJI blogs, but the powers that be, over there, decided to block them. But even when you stay on topic, they either block or delete your posts. Needless to say, I'm looking for a new home. I hope maybe it can be here.

      Prayer for serenity? lol... Glad when they visit, but glad when they leave, too? I totally understand, though. Did your weather ever get better? It was only 60 here yesterday. Been having a lot of rain, too. I'm having a hard time getting out there to plant flowers. Did you get your vines planted? What do you usually plant? Do you do Morning Glory's? They would be a fast grower, too. I picked up a couple of the mandevilla vines. They are calling them something different this year. If you are interested, I'll go out and get the name for you. Let me know.

      I had to google Cypress vine. Pretty. Do you plant those in pots, or are you on the ground level, so you can plant in the ground? Oh, those other flowers that I was telling you about previously, I think they are called Lantana. I bought a small planter with that in. I have to buy something to get them higher off ground, so the hummingbirds can get at them, without my cats nabbing them. If you can get that in a hanging basket, you will double your hummingbirds. They really like the purple ones. There wasn't an info spike in the planter, so I could verify name, but I'm pretty sure that is what they are called. I think you'd really like "Dipladenia". That is the mandevilla vine name. Gets like about a 4 inch flower on it. Grows really fast, too. You can actually bring those into the house for the winter, and put back out the following year.

    Through the pitch-black night, the captain sees a light dead ahead on a collision course with his ship. He sends a signal: “Change your course 10 degree east.”
    The light signals back: “Change yours, 10 degrees west.”
    Angry, the captain sends: “I’m a navy captain! Change your course, sir!”
    “I’m a seaman, second class,” comes the reply. “Change your course, sir.”
    Now the captain is furious. “I’m a battleship! I’m not changing course!”
    There is one last reply. “I’m a lighthouse. Your call.”

      By the time the soldier pulled into the little town, every hotel room was taken. "You've got to have a room somewhere", he pleaded with a proprietor. "Well, I do have a double room with one occupant, but he is an Air Force guy" admitted the manager, and he might be glad to split the cost. But to tell you the truth, he snores so loudly that people in adjoining rooms have complained in the past. I'm not sure it'd be worth it to you.
      " No problem." the tired Army guy assured him, "I'll take it." The next morning the soldier came down to breakfasts bright-eyed and bushy tailed. "How'd you sleep?" asked the manager. "Never better", said the soldier. The manager was impressed. "No problem with the other guy snoring all night long?" "No, I shut him up in no time", explained the soldier.
      "How'd you manage that?" asked the proprietor.
      "Well, he was already in bed, snoring away, when I walked into the room, so I gave him a kiss on the cheek" explained the soldier. “Then, I whispered in his ear 'Good night beautiful', and he sat up all night watching me."

      A large group of Taliban soldiers are moving down a road when they hear a voice call from behind a sand-dune. "One Texas soldier is better than ten Taliban".

      The Taliban commander quickly sends 10 of his best soldiers over the dune whereupon a gun-battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes, then silence.

      The voice then calls out "One Texan is better than one hundred Taliban".

      Furious, the Taliban commander sends his next best 100 troops over the dune and instantly a huge gunfight commences. After 10 minutes of battle, again silence.

      The Texan voice calls out again "One Texan is better than one thousand Taliban".

      The enraged Taliban Commander musters one thousand fighters and sends them across the dune. Cannon, rocket and machine gun fire ring out as a huge battle is fought. Then silence.

      Eventually one wounded Taliban fighter crawls back over the dune and with his dying words tells his commander, "Don't send any more men, its a trap. There's actually two of them."
