    Coffee Anyone?
    An Irish woman, of a certain age, visited her physician to ask his help in reviving her husband's libido.
    "What about trying Viagra?" asks the doctor.
    "Not a chance," she said. "He won't even take an aspirin."
    "Not a problem," replied the doctor. "Drop it into his coffee. He won't even taste it. Give it a try and call me in a week to let me know how things went."

    It wasn't a week later that she called the doctor, who directly inquired as to progress.
    The poor dear exclaimed, "Oh, faith, bejaysus and begorrah! "Twas horrid. Just terrible, doctor."
    "Really? What happened?" asked the doctor.
    "Well, I did as you advised and slipped it in his coffee. The effect was almost immediate. He jumped hisself straight up, with a twinkle in his eye, and with his pants a-bulging fiercely! With one swoop of his arm he sent the cups and tablecloth flying, ripped me clothes to tatters and took me then and there, making wild, mad, passionate love to me on the tabletop! It was a nightmare, I tell ye, an absolute nightmare!"

    "Why so terrible?" asked the doctor. "Do you mean the sex your husband provided was not good?"
    "No, no, no, doctor. The sex was fine. Indeed, twas the best sex I've had in 25 years. But, sure as I'm sittin' here, I'll never be able to show me face in Starbucks again. "

    haha - great joke.

    i've thought about this for ages, and i think it's finally time to ask it - can jokes be used freely to develop content on a website? does anyone own the rights to jokes, or is there any limitation to using jokes you hear or read, to set up a joke website?

    everytime i hear a good joke, i think what a nice idea it would be to set up a website where i can add the jokes to, so that everyone can read them. i know their are hundreds of joke sites already, but it would be nice to have a site which are the jokes I enjoy!

    anyone know?

    It's very simple, Gordon,

    Some people's life are a joke, but if they are told all over the world without anyone thinking of copywrite, someone is going to get sued.

    You have some good jokes about some networks, but......

    Think about it!

    You have some priceless jokes about some TLC* that can get you in trouble.

    And the TLC* that I am talking about here, doesn't mean Tender Loving Care.

    Did you get my drift?

    I have a chuckles area on many of my forum sites, and I'll throw in something from here, there or some other place every so ofte just to seed conversation.

    The only thing you'd need to be careful of is taking directly from a printed book of jokes or stand-up omedians like the Jay Leno. They can probably claim copyright on the specific wording, but they can't copyright the concepts. If you change it a bit (guy walks into a saloon instead of a bar, talks to a bunch of cowboys instead of bikers, etc) it's doubtful anyone will raise a ruckous or slap any kind of C&D on you.

    Because Irish men have that problem and they usually date Irish women.

    "i've thought about this for ages, and i think it's finally time to ask it - can jokes be used freely to develop content on a website?"

    I've had some top 10 ranking joke pages on my site. The jokes were copied from forwarded emails. I figure if it lands in my inbox it's been copied enough already that nobody would care.
