A Joke

by Archived Article (2001–2014) Help
My mother received the following joke from her office and I find it hilarious. It may have made the e-mail rounds before, so you may already be familiar with it.
Three men, one German, one Japanese and one from Texas, were sitting naked in a hotel sauna.

Suddenly there was a beeping sound and the German responded by pressing his forearm. The beeping stopped, so the others looked at him questioningly.

"That was my pager," he said. "I have a microchip under the skin of my arm."

A few moments later, there was a telephone ring. The Japanese man lifted his palm to his ear and engaged in conversation. When he finished, he turned to the others and said, "That was my mobile telephone. I have a microchip in my head."

The Texan felt decidedly low-tech, but not to be outdone, he decided he had to do something just as impressive. He stepped out of the sauna and went to the bathroom. He returned with a piece of toilet paper hanging from his ass.

The others raised their eyebrows and stared at him. The Texan turned and said, "Well, will you look at that! I am getting a fax."
And I must finally note the fact that this entry constitutes my 500th post in the Forum. Someone shut me the fuck up already.
