NASA was interviewing professionals to be sent to Mars. Only one could go,
and he couldn't return to Earth. The first applicant, an engineer, was asked
how much he wanted to be paid for going. "A million dollars," he answered,
"because I want to donate it to M.I.T." The next applicant, a doctor, was
asked the same question. He asked for two million dollars. "I want to give a
million to my family," he explained, "and leave the other million for the
advancement of medical research." The last applicant was a lawyer. When
asked how much money he wanted, he whispered in the interviewer's ear, "Three
million dollars." "Why so much more than the others?" the interviewer asked.
The lawyer replied, "If you give me $3 million, I'll give you $1 million, I'll
keep $1 million, and we'll send the engineer to Mars."
These all are jokes that we've had the good fortune of having other people
email to us or we've retrieved off the Internet. Over time, we've sent them on
to the subscribers of our various jokes lists.
Since we're talking some ten years of managing these emails lists, we've built
up a pretty sizeable (and FUNNY) collection of jokes. They cover pretty much
any category and topic that you can imagine; from clean jokes to dirty jokes
and most everything in between, including the much loved lawyer jokes and the
blonde jokes and the yo mama jokes as well as those redneck jokes.
Remember, we did NOT author them, but we did take the time to convert the text
files to html.
