There are a lot of folks who can't understand how it came to be
that there is an oil shortage in the USA.
Well, there's a very simple answer:
Nobody bothered to check the oil.
They just didn't know that they were getting low.
The reason for this is purely geographical...
All the oil is in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana, Wyoming, New Mexico, Alaska.
All the dipsticks are in Washington, D.C.
Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God went missing for six
days.Eventually, Michael the archangel found him on the seventh day,
resting.He inquired of God :-"Where have you been?" God sighed a deep sigh
of satisfaction and proudly pointed downwards through the clouds.
"Look Michael, look what I've made." Said God.
Archangel Michael look puzzled and said :-"What is it?"
"It's a planet" replied God, "and I've put LIFE on it.I'm going to call it
Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance.""Balance?" inquired
Michael, still confused. God explained, pointing to different parts of
Earth. "For example, North America will be a place of great opportunity and
wealth while South America is going to be poor, The Middle East over there
will be a hot spot while Russia, over there, will be freezing. Over there I
placed a continent of white people and over there I have a continent of
Black people" God continued, pointing to different countries. "This one
will be extremely arid and hot while this one will be cold and covered in
The Archangel, impressed by gods work, then pointed to a small land mass
and said "What's this one then?". "Ah" said god, "That's Britain, the most
glorious place on Earth. There are beautiful lakes, rivers,
streams,mountains and hills. The people from Britain are going to be
modest, intelligent and humorous and they are going to be found travelling
the world. They will be extremely sociable, hard-working and high
achieving,and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and
carriers of peace and stability."
Michael gasped in wonder and admiration but then proclaimed
"What about BALANCE God? You said there will be BALANCE!!!!!"
God replied wisely
"Wait until you see the wankers I'm putting next to them in France!!"
One day, while a woodcutter was cutting a branch of a tree above a
river, his axe fell into the river. When he cried out, the Lord
appeared and asked, "Why are you crying?"
The woodcutter replied that his axe fell into water.
The Lord went down into the water and reappeared with a golden axe.
"Is this your axe?" the Lord asked.
The woodcutter replied, "No."
The Lord again went down and came up with a silver axe. "Is this your
axe?" the Lord asked.
Again, the woodcutter replied, "No."
The Lord went down again and came up with an iron axe. "Is this your
axe?" the Lord asked.
The woodcutter replied, "Yes."
The Lord was pleased with the man's honesty and gave him all three
axes to keep, and the woodcutter went home happily.
One day while the woodcutter was walking with his wife along the
riverbank she fell into the river. When he cried out, the Lord again
appeared and asked him, "Why are you crying?"
"Oh Lord, my wife has fallen into the water!"
The Lord went down into the water and came up with Jennifer Lopez. "Is
this your wife?" the Lord asked.
"Yes," cried the woodcutter.
The Lord was furious. "You cheat! That is a lie!!"
The woodcutter replied, "Oh, forgive me, my Lord.! It is a
misunderstanding. You see, if I had said 'no' to Jennifer Lopez, You
would have come up with Catherine Zeta-Jones. Then if I also say 'no'
to her, You would thirdly come up with my wife, and I would say
'yes,' and then all three would be given to me. But Lord, I am a poor
man and I would not be able to take care of all three wives, so that's
why I said yes the first time."
The moral of the story is whenever a man lies it is for an honourable

you the questions.

A driver is pulled over by a policeman. The police man approaches the
"Is there a problem Officer?"
The policeman says, "Sir, you were speeding. Can I see your licence

"You don't have one?"
The man responds, "I lost it four times for drink driving."
The policeman is shocked. "I see. Can I see your vehicle registration
"I'm sorry, I can't do that."
The policeman says, "Why not?"
"I stole this car."
The officer says, "Stole it?"
The man says, "Yes, and I killed the owner."
At this point the officer is getting irate. "You what!?"
"She's in the boot if you want to see."
The Officer looks at the man and slowly backs away to his car and
calls for back up.
Within minutes, five police cars show up, surrounding the car. A
senior officer slowly approaches the car, clasping his half drawn gun.
The senior officer says "Sir, could you step out of your vehicle

The officer responds, "Yes, could you please open the boot of your car

The officer says, "Is this your car sir?"
The man says "Yes," and hands over the registration papers.
The officer, understandably, is quite stunned. "One of my officers
claims that you do not have a driving licence."
The man digs in his pocket revealing a wallet and hands it to the
officer. The officer opens the wallet and examines the licence. He
looks quite puzzled. "Thank you sir, one of my officers told me you
didn't have a licence, stole this car, and murdered the owner."
The man replies, "I bet you the lying bastard told you I was speeding,
