An man was crossing a road one day, when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess." He bent over, picked up the frog, and put it in his pocket.  

The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn back into a beautiful princess and stay with you for one week." The man took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket.  

The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you for one week and grant you three wishes." Again, the man took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket. 

Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess and that I'll stay with you for one week and give you wishes. Why won't you kiss me?" 

The man said, "Look, I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog - now that's cool."

Have a Great Tuesday.

Here is a little Monday morning humor.

Sven and Ollie were standing at the base of a flagpole, looking at its top.
A woman walked by and asked what they were doing.
"We're supposed to find the height of this flagpole," said Sven, "but we don't have a ladder."
The woman took a wrench from her purse, loosened a couple of bolts, and laid the pole down on the ground. Then she took a tape measure from her pocketbook, took a measurement, announced, "Twenty-one feet, six inches," and walked away.
Sven looked at Ollie shook his head and laughed, "A lot of good that does us. We ask for the height and she gives us the length!"

The U.S. Standard railroad gauge (distance between the rails) is 4 feet, 8.5 inches. That's an exceedingly odd number. Why was that gauge used?
Because that's the way they built them in England , and English expatriates designed the U.S. Railroads.  Why did the English build them like that?

 Because the first rail lines were built by the same people who built the pre-railroad tramways, and that's the gauge they used. Why did 'they' use that gauge then?
Because the people who built the tramways used the same jigs and tools that they used for building wagons, which used that wheel spacing.
Why did the wagons have that particular odd wheel spacing?
Well, if they tried to use any other spacing, the wagon wheels would break on some of the old, long distance roads in England , because that's the spacing of the wheel ruts.

So, who built those old rutted roads?
Imperial Rome built the first long distance roads in Europe (including England ) for their legions. Those roads have been used ever since. 

And the ruts in the roads?

Roman war chariots formed the initial ruts, which everyone else had to match for fear of destroying their wagon wheels.

Since the chariots were made for Imperial Rome , they were all alike in the matter of wheel spacing. Therefore, the United States standard railroad gauge of 4 feet, 8.5 inches is derived from the original speci-fications for an Imperial Roman war chariot.

 In other words, bureaucracies live forever.  So the next time you are handed a specification, procedure, or process, and wonder, 'What horse's ass came up with this?', you may be exactly right.

Imperial Roman army chariots were made just wide enough to accom-modate the rear ends of two war horses.

Now, the twist to the story:
When you see a Space Shuttle sitting on its launch pad, you will notice that there are two big booster rockets attached to the sides of the main fuel tank. These are solid rocket boosters, or SRBs. The SRBs are made by Thiokol at their factory in Utah.

The engineers who designed the SRBs would have preferred to make them a bit larger, but the SRBs had to be shipped by train from the factory to the launch site. The railroad line from the factory happens to run through a tunnel in the mountains, and the SRBs had to fit through that tunnel. The tunnel is slightly wider than the railroad track, and the railroad track, as you now know, is about as wide as two horses' behinds.

So, a major Space Shuttle design feature of what is arguably the world's most advanced transportation system was determined over 2,000 years ago by the width of a horse's ass.

 And you thought being a horse's butt wasn't important!
Now you know!  Horses' butts control almost everything!
This explains a whole lot of stuff about Washington D.C. , doesn't it?

Two engineering students were biking across a university campus when one said, "Where did you get such a great bike?" 

The second engineer replied, "Well, I was walking along yesterday, minding my own business, when a beautiful woman rode up on this bike, threw it to the ground, took off all her clothes and said, 'Take what you want.'" 

The first engineer nodded approvingly and said, "Good choice: The clothes probably wouldn't have fit you anyway."

Now tht's funny!
