    A woman was trying hard to get the catsup to come out of the bottle. During her struggle the phone rang so she asked her four-year-old daughter to answer the phone. "It's the minister, Mommy," the child said to her mother. Then she added, "Mommy can't come to the phone right now. She's hitting the bottle."

    A family of three tomatoes were walking downtown one day when the little baby tomato started lagging behind. The big father tomato walks back to the baby tomato, stomps on her, squashing her into a red paste, and says, "Ketchup!"

    Henry Ford dies and goes to heaven.

    At the gates, Saint Peter tells Ford, "Well, you’ve been such a good guy and your invention of the car changed the world. As a reward, you can hang out with anyone you want in heaven."

    So Henry Ford thinks about it and says, "I want to hang out with Adam, the first man."

    So the guy at the gates points Adam out to Ford.

    When Ford gets to Adam, Ford asks, "Hey aren’t you the inventor of woman?"

    Adam says, "Yes."

    "Well," says Ford, "You have some major design flaws in your invention:
    1) There is too much front end protusion
    2) It chatters at high speeds
    3) The rear end wobbles too much
    4) and the intake is too close to the exhaust."

    "Hmmmmm.." says Adam, "hold on".

    So Adam goes to the celestial computer, types in a few keystrokes, and waits for the results.

    The computer prints out a slip of paper and Adam reads it.

    He then says to Ford, "It may be that my invention is flawed, but according to the stellar computer, more men are riding my invention than yours."

    Karzai our dearly planted, would never want us out of Afghanistan despite his public posturing. Why would he want protectors of his cartel out?
