"JOKE OF THE MONTH"

The rules are simple to win: No "xxx" jokes, sorry. Kit Menkin cannot win  (relatives, friends and employees can enter and win). Please note, if in the decision of the judges there is no "best" joke, a previous month may be included, and like in horseshoes, there are no ties. Winners of previous months can also win a second or third time - There is no limit.

Please send me your favorite joke. The first one to send it, not only gets the credit, but a good bottle of wine or a box of chocolates (the winner’s choice).


Winner for August 2002

Rosalie
Santa Cruz, California

(second time she has won; the first, September, 1998)
"Vasona Park Visit "

        Three little old Jewish ladies,after visiting the Los Gatos Jewish Community Center on Oka Road, were sitting out on the Vasona Park bench happily talking and laughing when a flasher came up to them and opened his trench coat and stood right in front of them.

        One little old lady had a stroke. Then the second lady had a stroke. The third little old lady had arthritis and couldn't reach that far.

 


This is the second time Rosalie has won ( September, 1998).

I changed the location of the church in the joke she originally

sent. We had a tie in our joke panel and the final vote made

her the winner.

 

 

  She does not want us to use her last name as she is a retired

psychotherapist from Los Gatos, California, who  specialized

in work with adolescents and families. Due to her previous profession,

she has requested we not use her last name.

 

Rosalie lives near the Santa Cruz Yacht Harbor. She is still quite

active, not only on the computer, her studies and reading, but likes to take long walks, plus works out with weights and water aerobics five days a week

at the spa.

 

She still belongs to and is a Board Member of many organizations. She

stays in contact with her friends both on line and in person, and is recently retired from a once very active practice.

 

Her dog enjoys the jaunts around the neighborhood, as well as romping

around  with her two indoor cats.

 

Her recent move is keeping her quite occupied with various building trades

contractors. She is particularly looking forward to having her Native

plants landscaping completed.

 

She continues to find the "world of technology" quite

fascinating...especially   Email and the Internet, and hopes to be able to

learn "how" to "easily" set up a  personal web page.

 

Rosalie passes on some very good jokes, although she does not like

"downloads," and is a member of the group we never send a "download"

graphic or joke, as the download time via a phone modem is exceedingly long!
