The Price of Gas in France

My dad has just come back from vacation and here's the first email I got from him after his trip to Vancouver:
A thief in Paris planned to steal some paintings from the Louvre.

After careful planning, he got past security, stole the paintings, and made it safely to his van.

However, he was captured only two blocks away, when his van ran out of gas.      

When asked how he could mastermind such a crime, and then make such an obvious error, he replied, "Monsieur, that is the reason I stole the paintings.
I had no Monet
To buy Degas

To make the Van Gogh."

Do you have De Gaulle, to send this on to someone else?

I sent it to you, because I figured, I had nothing Toulouse.

Our Mickey Townhouse

We're heading out to Disneyworld in September and this is the vacation home we're renting. What do you think?

This is too funny

I met my husband on a BBS, which was what passed for the Internet before the Internet existed. I wonder if that's why my dad decided to blast out this joke today.


Daughter: "Daddy, I am coming home to get married. Take out your checkbook. I'm in love with a boy who is far away from me. I am in California and he lives in New York. We met on a dating website, became friends on Facebook, had long chats on Whatsapp, he proposed to me on Skype and now we've had two months of relationship through Viper. Dad, I need your blessings, good wishes, and a big wedding."

Father: "Wow! Really!! Then get married on Twitter, have fun on Tango, buy your kids on Amazon and pay through PayPal. And if you get fed up with your husband....sell him on Ebay."

Stowaway Cat

My dad, being the fan of aviation that he is, only has this comment to make about this video:

I wonder what kind of plane that is?  The skin looks like some kind of translucent plastic or fabric.

My comment is:

A Blonde and her Jaguar

Here's one of my dad's recent jokes:

Carolyn, a very rich blonde, buys a new automatic Jaguar XKR Sports car.

She drives the car perfectly well during the day, but at night, the car just won't go at all.

After trying to drive the car at night for a week (but without any luck), she furiously calls the Jaguar dealer, and they send out a technician to her.

The technician examines the car and finds nothing wrong with it.

So he turns to the blonde and asks: "Ma'am, are you sure you are using the right gears?"

Full of anger, the blonde replies:

"You nut, you idiot, how on earth you could ask such a question? I'm not stupid you know! Of course I am using the right gears;

I use "D" during the day

and "N" at night."
