Chinese Torture,

A young man is wandering, lost, in a forest when he comes upon a
small house. Knocking on the door, he is greeted by an ancient
Chinese man with a long gray beard. "I'm lost,"
said the man. "Can you put me up for the night?"
"Certainly" replied the Chinese man, "but on one condition.
If you so much as lay a finger on my daughter, I will
inflict upon you the three worst Chinese tortures known to
man." "okay," said the man, and entered
the house. Over dinner, the daughter came down the stairs.
She was young, beautiful and had a fantastic body. She was
obviously attracted to the young man as she could not keep her
eyes off of him during the meal. Remembering the old
man's warning, he ignored the daughter and went up to bed
alone. During the night he could bear it no longer and snuck into her
room for a night of passion. He was careful to keep
everything quiet so the old man wouldn't hear, and near dawn, he
crept back to his room, exhausted but happy.
He woke to feel pressure on his chest. Opening his eyes, he
saw a large rock on his chest. ON the rock was a note
that read: "Chinese torture number one.....large rock
on chest." Well, that's pretty crappy, he
thought. "if that is the worst the old man can do,
then I don't have much to worry about." He picked the boulder up,
walked over to the window, and threw the boulder out. As he did
so, he noticed another note on it that read:"Chinese
torture number two.....rock tied to left testicle."
In a panic, he glanced down and saw the rope
that was already getting close to taut. Figuring that a
few broken bones was better than castration, he jumped out
of the window after the boulder. As he plummeted towards the
ground, he saw a large sign on the ground that read:"Chinese
torture number three.....right testicle tied to the bed


: )

Have a great day..all !

More Humour from Cuddlybear

Bug Light

In the backwoods of Kentucky, the redneck's wife went into labor in the
middle of the night, and the doctor was called in to assist in the
delivery. Since there was no electricity, the doctor handed the father-to-be a lantern
and said, "Here, you hold this high so I can see what I'm doing."
Soon, a baby boy was brought into the world. "Whoa there,"said the
doctor. "Don't be in a rush to put the lantern down...I think there's
yet another one to come." Sure enough, within minutes he had delivered
a baby girl. "No, no, don't be in a great hurry to be putting down
that lantern...It seems there's yet another one in there!" cried the
doctor. The Redneck scratched his head in bewilderment, and asked the doctor,
"Do you think it's the light that's attractin' 'em?"


A funeral service is being held for a woman who has just passed away.
At the end of the service the pallbearers are carrying the casket out
when they accidentally bump into a wall, jarring the casket. They hear
a faint moan. They open the casket and find that the woman is actually
alive. She lives for ten more years,and then dies. A ceremony is again
held at the same place, and at the end of the ceremony the pallbearers
are again carrying out the casket. As they are walking, the husband
cries out, "watch out for that wall!"
