According to Billboard magazine, André Rieu is the world’s most successful male touring artist.

Being a natural showman, Rieu gets the audience, of all ages, out of their chair and on their feet, dancing, clapping and laughing. Rieu’s concerts are extravaganzas that attract thousands of fans a night. What’s unique is that Rieu, who is fluent in many languages, always addresses the audience in their native language.

Rieu, who plays a 1732 Stradivarius, is passionate about music and is dedicated to introducing children to the world of classical music. Being an ambassador for classical music, that’s what I’ve done the last 30 years, and that’s what I’ll continue doing the next 30 years,” states Rieu.

If you are my age, then you surely remember the old Catskill Mountain area in upstate N.Y where comics of vaudeville days, viz., Myron Cohen, Henny Youngman, Shecky Green, Red Buttons, Totie Fields, Milton Berle, got their start in show business. Here’s a few choice, but worn out lines, that got belly laughs from a mostly Jewish audience:

Rodney Dangerfield

I am so ugly I stuck my head out the window and got arrested for mooning.

MY wife’s such a bad cook, the dog begs for Alka-Seltzer.

There was a beautiful young woman knocking on my hotel room door all night! I finally had to let her out.

A car hit an elderly Jewish man. The paramedic says, “Are you comfortable?” The man says, “I make a good living.”

I’ve been in love with the same woman for 49 years. If my wife ever finds out, she’ll kill me!

What are three words a woman never wants to hear when she’s making love…”Honey, I’m home!”

Someone stole all my credit cards, but I won’t be reporting it. The thief spends less than my wife did.

My wife got a mudpack and looked great for two days. Then the mud fell off.

A drunk was in front of a judge. The judge says, “You’ve been brought here for drinking.” The drunk says “Okay, let’s get started.”

My wife only has sex with me for a purpose. Last night she used me to time an egg.

It’s tough to stay married. My wife kisses the dog on the lips, but she won’t drink from my glass!

A girl phoned me and said, “Come on over. There’s nobody home.” I Went over. Nobody was home.

A hooker once told me, “Not tonight.” She had a headache.

I went to a massage parlor. It was self service.

I was making love to this girl and she started crying. I said, “Are you going to hate yourself in the morning?” She said, “No, I hate myself now.”

I knew a girl so ugly that she was known as a two-bagger. That’s when you put a bag over your head in case the bag over her head comes off.

The other day I came home and a guy was jogging, naked. I asked “Why?” He said “Because you came home early.”

Benjamin Franklin once observed, if you would not be forgotten as soon as you are dead and rotten…either write things worth reading, or do things worth the writing.

If this does not touch your heart, then you just don’t have one…..

An incredible story of luck and inspiration!


Can you believe it? This guy wins $181 million in the lottery last Wednesday, and then finds the love of his life just 2 days later. Talk about double lucky!

Fork in the hand of the devil

For those of you who watch what you eat, here’s the final word on nutrition and health. It’s a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting nutritional studies.

1. The Japanese… eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
2. The Mexicans… eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
3. The Chinese… drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
4. The Italians… drink a lot of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.
5. The Germans… drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than Americans.

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

The Sleeping Lady

After 20 years of marriage, a couple was lying in bed one evening when the wife felt her husband begin to fondle her in ways and places he hadn’t done in quite some time.

It almost felt like the honeymoon night as his fingers started at her neck, and then began moving down past the small of her back. He gently then caressed her shoulders , slowly he worked his hand down over her breasts, then he moved his palms over her hardened nipples. Next he proceeded to make circular movements with his hands into her arm pits, stroking her lovingly. From there he smoothly working his hands down over her ample, graspable hips and passed gently over both her buttocks massaging with his long fingers and down her leg to her calf and then up into the wet nether regions. His loving, gentle feeling and touching was stimulating and brought on a girlish excitement…things were happening to her that hadn’t happened in a long time, she felt like a giant orgasmic wave was rolling and building and about to explode within her lithe body …then suddenly he stopped, rolled over and started to watch TV.

As he had put her in state of arousal by his stimulating touching, feeling, caressing, she asked in a voice purring with pleasure, “That was wonderful. Why did you stop?”
