oil on your engine block and you'll be cooking in no time!

as the main course. While the guests were eating the appetizer, the
cook came to the host and whispered "Please come urgently to the
kitchen." The host went to the kitchen where the cook explained that

which they were going to serve. The host said, "Just fill the hole
with stuffing and turn the other side up, nobody will notice."

host was again called to the kitchen. The cook said, "The cat is dead!"

was wrong with the fish and everyone must have their stomachs pumped
out at the hospital." When they came back everything was still fine
and the host went to ask the cook, "Where is the cat?"
"Oh," said the chef, "The cat is still by the road where the
truck ran it down!"

This 85 year old couple, having been married almost 60 years, had
died in a car crash. They had been in good health the last ten years
mainly due to her interest in health food, and exercise.

When they reached the pearly gates, St. Peter took them to their
mansion which was decked out with a beautiful kitchen and master
bath suite and Jacuzzi.

As they "oohed and aahed" the old man asked Peter how much all
this was going to cost.
"It's free," Peter replied, "this is Heaven."

Next they went out back to survey the championship golf course
that the home backed up to. They would have golfing privileges
everyday and each week the course changed to a new one representing
the great golf courses on earth.

The old man asked, "What are the green fees?".
Peter's reply, "This is heaven, you play for free."

Next they went to the club house and saw the lavish buffet lunch
with the cuisines of the world laid out.
"How much to eat?" asked the old man.
"Don't you understand yet? This is heaven, it is free!" Peter replied
with some exasperation.
"Well, where are the low fat and low cholesterol tables?" the old
man asked timidly.

Peter lectured, "That's the best part...you can eat as much as you
like of whatever you like and you never get fat and you never get
sick. This is Heaven."

With that the old man went into a fit of anger, throwing down his
hat and stomping on it, and shrieking wildly.

Peter and his wife both tried to calm him down, asking him what was
wrong. The old man looked at his wife and said, "This is all your fault.
If it weren't for your blasted bran muffins, I could have been
here ten years ago!"

Food Spoilage Table

THE GAG TEST
Anything that makes you gag is spoiled (except for leftovers
from what you cooked for yourself last night).

EGGS
When something starts pecking its way out of the shell, the
egg is probably past its prime.

MEAT
If opening the refrigerator door causes stray animals from
a three-block radius to congregate outside your house,
the meat is spoiled.

CANNED GOODS
Any canned goods that have become the size or shape of a
basketball should be disposed of. Carefully.

WINE
It should not taste like salad dressing.

POTATOES
Fresh potatoes do not have roots, branches, or dense,
leafy undergrowth.

GENERAL RULE OF THUMB:
Most food cannot be kept longer than the average life span
of a hamster. Keep a hamster in your refrigerator to gauge this.

Instructions for Microsoft's New TV Dinner Product:

You must first remove the plastic cover. By doing so you agree to
accept and honor Microsoft rights to all TV dinners. You may not
give anyone else a bite of your dinner (which would constitute an
infringement of Microsoft's rights). You may, however, let others
smell and look at your dinner and are encouraged to tell them how
good it is.

If you have a PC microwave oven, insert the dinner into the oven.
Set the oven using these keystrokes:

mstv.dinn.//08.5min@50%heat

Then enter:

ms//start.cook_dindin/yummy\|/yum~yum:-)gohot#cookme.

If you have a Macintosh microwave oven, insert the dinner and
press start. The oven will set itself and cook the dinner.

If you have a Unix microwave oven, insert the dinner, enter the
ingredients of the dinner found on the package label, the weight
of the dinner, and the desired level of cooking and press start.
The oven will calculate the time and heat and cook the dinner
exactly to your specification.

Be forewarned that Microsoft dinners may crash, in which case
your oven must be restarted. This is a simple procedure. Remove
the dinner from the oven and enter:

ms.nodamn.good/tryagain\again/again.crap

This process may have to be repeated. Try unplugging the
microwave and then doing a cold reboot. If this doesn't work,
contact your oven vendor. The oven itself is obviously on the blink.

Many users have reported that the dinner tray is far too big, larger
than the dinner itself, having many useless compartments, most of
which are empty. These are for future menu items. If the tray is too
large to fit in your oven, you will need to upgrade your equipment.

Dinners are only available from registered outlets, and only the
chicken variety is currently produced. If you want another variety,
call Microsoft Help and they will explain that you really don't want
another variety. Microsoft Chicken is all you really need. Microsoft
has disclosed plans to discontinue all smaller versions of their
chicken dinners. Future releases will only be in the larger family
size. Excess chicken may be stored for future use, but must be
saved only in Microsoft approved packaging.

Microsoft promises a dessert with every dinner after '98.
However, that version has yet to be released. Users have
permission to get thrilled in advance.

Microsoft dinners may be incompatible with other dinners in the
freezer, causing your freezer to self-defrost. This is a feature, not
a bug. Your freezer probably should have been defrosted anyway.

The day after a man lost his wife in a scuba diving accident, he
was greeted by two grim-faced policemen at his door.

"We're sorry to call on you at this hour, Mr. Wilkens, but we have
some information about your wife."

"Well, tell me!" the man said.

The policeman said, "We have some bad news, some good news and some
really great news. Which do you want to hear first?"

Fearing the worse, Mr. Wilkens said, "Give me the bad news first."

So the policeman said, "I'm sorry to tell you sir, but this morning
we found your wife's body in San Francisco Bay."

"Oh my god!," said Mr. Wilkens, overcome by emotion. Then,
remembering what the policeman had said, he asked, "What's the good
news?"

"Well," said the policeman, "When we pulled her up she had two
five-pound lobsters and a dozen good size Dungeoness crabs on her."

"If that's the good news than what's the great news?!", Mr. Wilkens
demanded.

The policeman said, "We're going to pull her up again tomorrow morning."
