Time for everyone's favorite! A collection of sexist images purporting to show the problems with Women Drivers. Don't forget that the idea here is to make you laugh, not to offend.

The term 'owned' or more commonly 'pwned' is a internet geek term that refers to 'ownage' by one player or person of another. Put more simply, during multi-player video games it was used to describe not simply beating a player, but destroying the other player in an overtly embarassing way. The term has grown over into other areas, sometimes real life. Most notably popular and funny in this context is it's usage in videos or graphics. Regular or familiar images have the term "OWNED" splashed across them.
Did you learn your lesson, little boy?
Here is my favorite example, an animated .GIF image of a little toddler on America's Funniest Videos. The kid was probably playing a little too close to the cat and the cat (thankfully declawed I think) got tired of it.
Would you like to learn more about pwnage? Be sure to check out some of the following resources (warning, though, some of them are not suitable for mixed company).
The efficiency expert concluded his lecture with a note of caution.
You don't want to try these techniques at home.
Why not? asked someone from the back of the audience.
Well, I watched my wife's routine at breakfast for years, the expert explained.
She made lots of trips to the refrigerator, stove, table and cabinets, often carrying just a single item at a time.
Hon, I suggested,
Why don't you try carrying several things at once?
The voice from the back asked,
Did it save time?
The expert replied,
Actually, yes. It used to take her 20 minutes to get my breakfast ready. Now I do it in seven.
For many years, one of the funniest computer-related puns has been that a prompt might ask the user to "Hit any key to continue". However, there is no key on the keyboard labeled "ANY" and computer noobs might be calling the technical support line asking for further assistance. It turns out that the Compaq computer company even has posted an FAQ file for it. Check it out at the COMPAQ Support Library. It was on Digg later too. How dumb is that?
Update: the Compaq website is broken, and potentially has been so for a long time. I guess they forgot to hit the right key to restart the server...
A female reporter was conducting an interview with a farmer about Mad Cow Disease.
Mr. Brown, do you have any idea what might be the cause of the disease?
Sure. Do you know the bulls only screw the cows once a year?
Umm, sir, that is a new piece of information, but what's the relationship between this and Mad Cow?
And did you know we milk the cows twice a day?
Mr. Brown, that's interesting, but, what's the point?
Lady, the point is this: if I'm playing with your tits twice a day, but only screwing you once a year, wouldn't you go mad, too?
