    Three mice were sitting in a bar bragging about how tough they were. The first mouse slams a shot of Bailey’s and says, "I play with mouse traps for fun. I'll run into one on purpose and just as it is closing on me, I grab the bar and bench press it twenty or thirty times." And with that, the mouse slams another shot of Bailey’s.

    The second mouse slams a shot of Bailey’s and says, "That's nothing. I take those Decon tablets, cut them up and snort them just for the fun of it." And with that, the mouse slams another shot of Bailey’s.

    The third mouse slams a shot of Bailey’s, gets up and walks away. The first two mice look at each other, and then ask of the third mouse, "Where the hell are you going?"

    The third mouse turns casually and replies, "I'm going home to fuck the cat."

    I'm not much for bench-pressing but I can put my feet behind my head (no, not while standing). Hoooooray for yoga! :)

    i usually work out at 250lbs these days. I was doing 300lbs for a while, so i suppose technically i "can" bench-press more if i have to.
