I'll bet you didn't know this!

Many of the newer cars have a Back-Up Sensor that warns the driver before
the rear bumper actually comes in contact with something. Who invented this sensor?
I'll bet you think it was Ford, maybe GM; how about Chrysler? No? Then how about
Mercedes Benz, or possibly the French or Italian car manufacturers?
No.

It was a Japanese farmer named Kawasaki.........
His invention was simple and effective.
It emits a high-pitch squeal just before the vehicle itself backs into something.

Here's his first prototype.. . Click Here

Thats hilarious. The ohio state fair used to have a big boar contest and they would get some at 1000 pounds. Poor guy would have them swing around and hit him in the side when he walked

Default Donkey race ...

A pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won. The pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the next race, and it won again.

The local newspaper read: PASTORíS ASS OUT FRONT.

The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the pastor not to enter the donkey in another race.

The next day, the local newspaper headline read: BISHOP SCRATCHES PASTORíS ASS.

This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the pastor to get rid of the donkey. The pastor decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent.

The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following headline the next day: NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN.

The Bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for $10.

The next day the paper read: NUN SELLS ASS FOR $10.

This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild.

The next day the headlines read: NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE.

The Bishop was buried the next day.

The moral of the story is:

Being concerned about public opinion can bring you much grief and misery and even shorten your life. So be yourself and enjoy life. Youíll be a lot happier and live longer!
