Enchanted River is found in the Philippines. It is called “enchanted” because no one has ever reached its bottom. Many people, including scuba divers, have tried reaching the bottom but have failed, hence the legend of its bottomless pit. Moreover, locals say that NOBODY has been successful in catching fish in this river, whether by hand or by spear. They say its bluish color is a result of its depth and the water clarity changes throughout the day. At around 12:00 pm, the water becomes clearer and even more majestic.

The Astonishing Annual Red Crab Migration
Each year millions of bright red land crabs leave their burrow homes on Australia’s Christmas Island and start a long, laborious trek toward the sea. They descend cliffs, climb banks and maneuver around obstacles to reach the shoreline and lay their eggs, eventually returning to the island’s central plateau with their offspring in tow. The synchronized migration resembles a crimson-colored river undulating across the island and can last up to 18 days. The event typically takes place in November or December (the crabs will only move when it’s raining) and coincides with the turning of high tide and the arrival of the waning moon.

RECTUM STRETCHER‏

While she was “flying” down the road yesterday, a woman passed over a bridge, only to find a cop with a radar gun on the other side lying in wait.The cop pulled her over, walked up to the car, with that classic patronizing smirk we all know and love, asked,”What’s your hurry?”To which she replied, “I’m late for work.”

Oh yeah,” said the cop, “what do you do?”

I’m a rectum stretcher,” she responded.

The cop stammered, “A what? A rectum stretcher? And just what does a rectum stretcher do?”

“Well,” she said, “I start by inserting one finger, then work my way up to two fingers, then three, then four, then with my whole hand in. I work from side to side until I can get both hands in, and then I slowly but surely stretch it, until it’s about 6 feet wide.”

“And just what the hell do you do with a 6 foot asshole? “he asked.

“You give him a radar gun and park him behind a bridge…”

Traffic Ticket – $95.00
Court Costs – $45.00
Look on the Cop’s Face … PRICELESS.

Curtis and Leroy

Canadian Humour

Curtis & Leroy saw an ad in the Kentville Advertiser Newspaper in Kentville , N.S. and bought a mule for $100.
The farmer agreed to deliver the mule the next day.
The following morning the farmer drove up, and said: “Sorry, fellers, I have some bad news for you, the mule died last night.”

Curtis & Leroy replied; ” Well then, just give us our money back. ”

The farmer said; ” Can’t do that…I went and spent it already.”

They said; ” Okay then, just bring us the dead mule .”

The farmer asked; “What in the world ya’ll gonna do with a dead mule?”

Curtis said; ” We gonn’a raffle him off .”

The farmer said; “You can’t raffle off a dead mule!”

Leroy said; “We shore can! Heck, we don’t hafta tell nobody he’s dead !”

A couple of weeks later, the farmer ran into Curtis & Leroy at the Co-Op grocery store and asked: “Say…what’d you fellers ever do with that dead mule?”
Curtis, said; “We raffled him off like we said we wuz gonn’a do.”

Leroy added; “Shucks, we sold 500 tickets fer two dollars a piece and made a profit of $898.”

The farmer said; “My Lord, didn’t anyone complain…?”

Curtis said; “Well, the feller who won was really upset. So we gave him his two dollars back.”

Curtis and Leroy now work for the government.

They’re overseeing Harper’s investigation of the Senate and the spending scandal.

Water is Life

How many folks do you know who say they don’t want to drink anything before going to bed because they’ll have to get up during the night!!
Heart Attack and Water – I never knew all of this ! Interesting…….Something else I didn’t know … I asked my Doctor why do people need to urinate so much at night time. Answer from my Cardiac Doctor –
Gravity holds water in the lower part of your body when you are upright (legs swell). When you lie down and the lower body (legs and etc) seeks level with the kidneys, it is then that the kidneys remove the water because it is easier. This then ties in with the last statement!
I knew you need your minimum water to help flush the toxins out of your body, but this was news to me.
Correct time to drink water… Very Important. From A Cardiac Specialist!

Drinking water at a certain time maximizes its effectiveness on the body: 2 glasses of water after waking up – helps activate internal organs
1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal – helps digestion
1 glass of water before taking a bath – helps lower blood pressure
1 glass of water before going to bed – avoids stroke or heart attack

I can also add to this… My Physician told me that water at bed time will also help prevent night time leg cramps. Your leg muscles are seeking hydration when they cramp and wake you up with a Charlie Horse.

A Cardiologist has stated that if each person after receiving this e-mail, sends it to 10 people, probably one life could be saved!

I have already shared this information. What about you?

Do forward this message. It may save lives!

Bob

What happens when you ask for help with an erection lasting more than 4 hours?

Bob walked into a drug store in Kentucky and asked to talk to a male pharmacist. The woman he was talking to said that she was the only pharmacist and as she and her sister owned the store, there were no male employees. She then asked if she could help him.  Bob said that it was something that he would be much more comfortable discussing with a male pharmacist. The lady pharmacist assured him that she was completely professional and whatever it was that he needed to discuss, he could be confident that she would treat him with a high level of professionalism.

Bob then agreed and began by saying, ‘This is tough for me to discuss, but, I get erections every day that last more than four hours. It causes me a lot of problems and severe embarrassment, and I was wondering what you could give me for it.’

The pharmacist said, “Just a minute, I’ll talk to my sister..”

When she returned, she said, “We discussed it at length and this is the absolute best we can do. 1/3 ownership in the store, a company pickup truck, a king size bed and $3,000 per month in living expenses.

Getting Older‏

Two elderly ladies were talking.

“At our age, I don’t know what would be worse; Parkinson”s or Alzheimer”s?” one said.

Her wise friend answered, “Oh I’d rather have Parkinson’s, definitely Parkinson’s.

Better to spill half my wine than to forget where I keep the bottle.”
