    This is why us fellas get more than one babe to “plug”. You have to keep the wife (BEEOTCH) in check.

    A husband and wife were having dinner at a very fine restaurant when this absolutely stunning young woman comes over to their table, gives the husband a big kiss, says she’ll see him later and walks away.

    His wife glares at him and says, “Who the hell was that?”

    “Oh,” replies the husband, “she’s my mistress.”

    “Well, that’s the last straw,” says the wife. “I’ve had enough, I want a divorce.”

    “I can understand that,” replies her husband, “but remember, if we get a divorce it means that you don’t get any more shopping trips to Paris, no more wintering in Barbados, no more summers in Tuscany, no more Ferrari and Lexus in the garage and no more yacht club. But the decision is yours.”

    Just then, a mutual friend enters the restaurant with another gorgeous babe on his arm.

    “Who’s that woman with Jim?” asks the wife.

    “That’s his mistress,” says her husband.

    “Ours is prettier,” she replies.=======

    Let that be a lesson, fellas. It will cost you for another babe, but it’s worth it.

  2. Desperado Says:

    Al? Seriously… WTF?

  3. Desperado Says:

    Like Aces would say… Think warm bath and razor blades…. warm bath and razor blades…. warm bath an razor blades

  4. Al Veoli Says:

    What about “WE ARE LOOKING AT A NAME” —

    This means our MD got stuck last night with a large block of crappy stock from his best client, and we must now dump it today on our clients without having done a stitch of research.

  5. Al Veoli Says:

    Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses and admit these jokes are funny. Besides, you’re using them with your clients aren’t you?

  6. SuperFlySnookums Says:

    I hate to admit it, I liked the mistress one. Nice work, Al.

    I only mildly want to strangle you now.

  7. Al Veoli Jr. Says:

    WTF! WTF! I waited in the rain for 2 effin hours at will call Dad! Did your assistant/mistress/male secretary NOT get you tickets???
    And oh btw; there’s a guy on here that calls Nana a whore. Do you know him? Is it true, is Nana a whore?

  8. Al Veoli Jr. Says:

    Reminds me of the lesson you taught me back at Thanksgiving ’93:
    A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is
    finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings.
    The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs
    downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob , the
    next-door neighbor..
    Before she says a word, Bob says, ‘I’ll give you $800
    to drop that towel.’
    After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel
    and stands naked
    > in front of Bob , after a few seconds, Bob hands her
    $800 and leaves.
    The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back
    upstairs. When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, ‘Who was that?’
    ‘It was Bob the next door neighbor,’ she replies.
    ‘Great,’ the husband says, ‘did he say anything about
    the $800 he owes me?’

    Moral of the story:
    If you share critical information pertaining to credit
    and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.

  9. Desperado Says:

    Ok it was kinda funny… But just that one.

  19. Wall Street Tool Says:

  20. Al Veoli Says:

    Hard to believe these posts are 2 years old. I’m still doing the same thing as before (tho 2 years older); the wife is 2 years older and still bangable, and I have kept my wiener in my pants except at home. She is happier that way, and who wants to start with another broad all over at my age!

  21. Slacker Says:

    Settle down Al. She is far from bangable .

  22. Al Veoli Says:

    Sure she is. I don’t have the problem this fella has. This ain’t me and the wife. Read on:

    “A man and his wife are returning from holiday, while on holiday they decided to buy themselves some pets, he bought a snake while the woman got a skunk. As they are passing through airport control they notice a sign which says ‘NO ANIMALS WILL BE ALLOWED THROUGH QUARANTINE’ Slightly distressed the woman turns to her husband and asks what they should do. After thinking hard for 5 minutes the man come up with a plan ‘what I’ll do is tie the snake around my waist and try to pretend that it’s a snake skin belt’ ‘Yes’ the woman replies ‘but what about the skunk?’ ‘I don’t know, you’ll just have to hide it up your skirt’ ‘but what about the smell?’ the woman asks. To which the man replies ‘Look, if it dies it dies!’
