I was just reading about the new Linsay Lohan diet, which is all liquid, 80 proof!

I bought a pedigree dog for $600 dollars. My friend said,
give me the $600, I’ll poop on your carpet!

I said to my husband, “my boobs have gone, my stomach has gone, say
something nice about my legs.” He said, “blue goes with everything!”

I’m definitely going to watch the Emmys this year. My makeup team
is nominated for BEST SPECIAL EFFECTS! (Joan Rivers’ character)

Know who I bumped into yesterday? Demi Moore and her much younger husband, Ashton Kutcher. She looked fabulous, better than ever. I guess it’s true what they say, a woman is never more beautiful than when she is with child.

I told my mother-in-law that my house was her house and she said, “get off my property!”

All my mother told me about sex was that the man goes on the top and the woman goes on the bottom. For three years, my husband and I slept in bunk beds.

I just had my 10th face lift, they say I’m starting to look like a Playboy bunny, because now my ears are on top of my head!


Two older Jewish ladies, Sophie and Fran, were shopping one afternoon
and Sophie says to Fran, “Wish me good luck, my son finally met a girl,
and maybe they will get married. But the only thing my son said is,
that she has herpes. What is herpes?”
Fran says, “I don’t know, but I have a medical dictionary, so when I get
home I’ll look it up for you.” The next day, the two ladies met again. Fran
says to her friend, Sophie, “It’s okay, you don’t have to worry, it’s a
disease of the gentiles.”

An elderly couple was watching television one evening. The wife said,
“I’m going to get a dish of ice cream now.” Kindly, the husband offered
to get the ice cream for his wife. She said, “Okay, I’ll write it down
so you don’t forget.” “I won’t forget,” said the old gent. “But I want
chocolate syrup and nuts on it, so I’ll write it down,” she replied.
“I will get the ice cream, don’t worry,” replied the gentleman. A few
minutes later the old man returns with bacon and eggs. His wife said,
“See, I should have written it down, because you forgot the toast!”
