Funny Poop
  • The pope had become very ill and was taken to many doctors, all of whom could not figure out how to cure him. Finally he was brought to an old physician, who stated that he could figure it out.
After about an hour's examination he came out and told the cardinals that he knew what was wrong. He said that the bad news was that it was a rare disorder of the testicles. He said that the goods news was that all the pope had to do to be cured was to have sex.
Well, this was not good news to the cardinals, who argued about it at length. Finally they went to the pope with the doctor and explained the situation. After some thought, the pope stated, "I agree but under four conditions."
The cardinals were amazed and there arose quite an uproar. Over all of the noise there arose a single voice that asked, "And what are the four conditions?"
The room stilled. There was a long pause. The pope replied, "First the girl must be blind, so that she cannot see with whom she is having sex.
"Second, she must be deaf, so that she cannot hear with whom she is having sex.
"And third she must be dumb so that if somehow she figures out with who she is having sex, she can tell no one."
After another long pause a voice arose and asked, "And the fourth condition?"
The pope smiled and replied, "Big tits."

  • A man is in his front yard attempting to fly a kite with his son. However, every time the kite gets up in the air, it comes crashing back down. This goes on for a while, when his wife stickes her head out he front door and yells “You need more tail”. The man turns to his son and says, “Son, I’ll never understand your mother. Yesterday, I told her I needed more tail, and she told me to go fly a kite!”
  • Muldoon lived alone in the Irish countryside with only a pet dog for company. One day the dog died, and Muldoon went to the parish priest and asked, "Father, my dog is dead. Could ya' be saying' a mass for the poor creature?"
    Father Patrick replied, "I'm afraid not; we cannot have services for an animal in the church. But there are some Baptists down the lane, and there's no tellin' what they believe. Maybe they'll do something for the creature."
    Muldoon said, "I'll go right away Father. Do ya' think $5,000 is enough to donate to them for the service?"
    Father Patrick exclaimed, "Sweet Mary, Mother of Jesus! Why didn't ya tell me the dog was Catholic?

Weekly Poop 1/31/18


Roost #44 Poop
  • From the PrezSome members may not be aware that Roost #44 is a member of the Council of Baltimore Raven Roosts. This Council was formed as the successor to the Council of Colt Corrals after the Ravens came to Baltimore in 1996. The Council holds a monthly meeting Catonsville, MD. All Roost presidents or a representative are expected to attend these meetings. Some of the major events that the Council sponsors are the Annual Council Convention and Parade in Ocean City and an annual Bull Roast in Baltimore, which is the prime fund raiser for the Council. The Council also raises significant donations to the Special Olympics of Maryland held at the Polar Bear Plunge at the Bay Bridge and another Plunge held in Western Maryland. Last year, $117,622 was raised by the Council and its members for both Plunges. Dues and funds generated by the Council are donated to various local and regional charities. Since 2007, the Council and its member Roosts have donated over $3,580,067 to charity. In addition, each Roost may apply for charity donation from the Council. Last year Roost #44 was given a $500.00 donation for Diakonia from the Council. At last week's Council meeting, Matthew Judon was present to accept the Council's Unsung Hero Award for 2017.
Currently, the Council has almost 70 members in Maryland, Pennsylvania and Virginia. The Council just approved an application from a city in Germany - Roost #500. Groups from Seattle, Jacksonville and North Carolina are also currently considering applying for membership in the Council.
For more information on the Council, like them on Facebook, go their website at www.councilrr.com or feel free to ask me for further information.

Funny Poop
  • My neighbor. She’s single. She’s shapely. She’s beautiful and lives right across the street. I can see her place from my kitchen window. I watched as she got home from work this evening. I was surprised when she walked across the street, up my driveway, and knocked on the door. I opened the door, she looked at me and said, “I just got home, and I have this strong urge to have a good time, dance, get drunk, and have sex tonight. Are you doing anything?”
    I quickly replied, “Nope, I’m free!”
    Great”, she said, “can you watch my dog?”
