A friend sent this to me. Living around here we have quite a few Amish folks: Sometimes stays in bed till after 5:00AM. In his sock drawer, you find pictures of women without bonnets. Shows up at barn raisings in full "Kiss" makeup. When you criticize him, he yells, "Thou sucketh!" His name is Jebediah, but he goes by "Jeb Daddy." Defiantly says, "If I had a radio, I'd listen to rap!" You come upon his secret stash of colorful socks. Uses slang expression: "Talk to the hand, cause the beard ain't listening."

Was wondering about the reponses I would get. I would poke fun at myself as much as someone else would. Maybe more, [:D] Being of German ancestry, I guess I can do it. I live in Berks County, and that along with Lancaster and Lebanon Connies is supposed to be the heart of Pa German country in Pa. I still think its funny though...

BTW, if you are observant, you'll notice that these kids can get in as much trouble as any teenager can. Just hang around Green Dragon on a Fri nite. [;)] Alot of folks hold them to a higher standard which isn't correct.

Here's probably the only two Amish jokes I know. An Amish family goes to town one day shopping. As the father and his oldest son are looking on, an elderly woman approaches a pair of large silver doors. She presses a button and the doors slide open. She enters and the doors close. "What is that, father?" asks the son. "I don't know, son." replies the father. Momentarily, the door opens and a very pretty young lady steps out. Father and son just look on in amazment. "Son," says father, "go get your mother." What do you call an Amish man with his arm up to his elbow in a horses' behind? . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . A mechanic [:D]

Sarah is toolin` down the road in her buggy, and gets pulled over by a trooper. She asks "sir, whatever is the trouble?" Trooper tells her the reason he stopped her, the rear lites on the buggy are out. She promises to have Eli make sure they`re full of kerosene as soon as she gets home. The cop then says "ma`m.i also noticed that one of your raines is wrapped around the horses testicles and that does not look right to me" She assures him that will also be adressed, and the officer tells her to procede and have a good evening.Of course sarah is upset upon arriving home...and Eli,worried, asks her what`s wrong...she explains "Eli, i was stopped by an officer of the law, who said that our buggy lites are not working" Eli says he`ll take care of it right away, and is that all? Sarah says "well, he also said that there is something wrong with the emergency brake!"..........[smoke]

Ok, here's one for you... Two Amish women are working in the garden, picking turnips. Bein' alone, they get to talking as women do, an' one of 'em holds a pair of big turnips at eye level and says to the other "You know, these look just like my husband Otis's balls." They other says "Really? Are they that big?" The first women replies "No! - They're that dirty!!!"

I live in Wi amish country...I get a kick out of groups of Amish teenagers in Cabels they love firearms...arround here they pretty well clean out the wildlife...all are avid hunters and own rifles...they just prefer single shots and level actions (autos are verbotten)..although they probably could own a horse or bicycle powered gatling gun

I didn't believe that this was real until I looked for myself. There really is a place called Intercourse, PA. While on the [url]http://www.theamishcountry.com[/url]I came across this:

Other places in Lancaster County that might draw a second glance: Bird-In-Hand, Paradise, Blue Ball, Gap, and I'm sure I missed one or two. Kurt (Living across the river in York County)
