Bubba, the Cougar linebacker and his new wife Darlene were driving to their honeymoon in Moscow. Bubba reached over and placed his hand on Darlene's knee. Darlene said, "Bubba, you can go further if you'd like!" So Bubba drove to Boise.
The Coug was driving in his pickup down the farm road one hot dusty day with the window rolled down and his arm resting on the windowsill. He turned his head to the left,sniffed the air and said, "ooohweee, when ARE they going to invent Left Guard?"
Rumor had it that Mike Price dreamed up a sure fire way not to lose the Apple Cup. If the Cougs win the coin toss prior to the opening kick off he's instructed his players to elect not to play.
Three students from Wazzu were in the park and they saw some tracks on the ground. They were guessing what they were from. One guy said that they were bear tracks, another guy said that they were raccoon tracks, and the last guy said that they were opossum tracks. Then the train came.
One day at the Pearly Gates, Saint Peter was greeting new comers. The first man was a brilliant engineer, so he and St. Peter talked about the great structures and buildings of the world.

The third guy had an IQ of 78 and a six pack in his right hand and St. Peter says, "How 'bout them Cougs!"
A WSU student walked into a bar in Seattle and ordered two beers. After he paid for the beers he drank one and poured the other one all over his right hand. The bartender was curious to what he was doing so he asked him, and the WSU student replied "I'm trying to get my date drunk."
A man died and was sent to Hell. As he was being led down the path, he noticed a Coug he had known back in the land of the living. The Coug had one of the most beautiful woman the man had ever seen draped all over him. The man began to complain to the devil about all the bad things he heard were going to happen to him, and questioned why the Coug had such an attractive woman. To this the devil responded, "How dare you question the way things are? How dare you question that woman's punishment."
Did you hear about the Coug that went to the library and checked out a book called "How to Hug?" Got back to the dorm and found out it was volume seven of the encyclopedia.
Apparently the FBI was called to WSU's practice the other day when they discovered a mysterious powder on the field that none of them had seen before. The FBI ran some tests before concluding that it was the goal line.
Two men, one Cougar and one Husky, are using a public restroom. When the Cougar notices that the Husky didn't wash his hands afterward, he says "Hey, at WSU they teach us to wash our hands after using the restroom." "Oh really," the Husky replies. "Well at UW we're smart enough to know not to pee on our hands."
A few years back, there was a popular defensive lineman that played for Washington State. When it came to be towards the end of his senior year, the guy (named Butch) found out that he didn't have enough credits to graduate. He went into to the administration building at Wazzu and pleaded with the dean to let him graduate, but to no avail. He had to have the same amount of credits as his fellow students if he wanted a degree of any sort.

Well, it came to be that time of year, and Butch decided he would show up at his graduation ceremony anyway, regardless of whether he was getting a diploma or not. As each student was called up to receive their degree, a chant began growing through the crowd. It grew and grew until it became a stomping and roaring yell of "Let Butch graduate!! Let Butch graduate!!" They came to the end of the students and the dean, fearing a riot if he didn't comply, called Butch up to the podium as the crowd erupted in cheers.

"Butch," he said into the mic, "I'll let you graduate if you can answer me this ONE question. What is four plus two?"

Now Butch stepped back and contemplated for a long period of time. You could practically see those rusty wheels turning as he thought about the possibilities. After a considerable pause, he stepped up to the mic and said, "Uhhh, six?"

A hush fell over the crowd, until the next chant began. "Give him another guess!!! Give him another guess!!"
It's Apple Cup weekend in Seattle. A man walks into a store dressed in red and gray from head to toe, except for his black slacks. He asks the salesman, "Do you carry any red pants? I'm a huge Cougar fan!"

"I knew that before you even opened your mouth," said the salesman.

"Why? Is it my outfit?"

"No. This is a hardware store."
A longtime Palouse wheat farmer dies of old, old age. He finds himself thrust into the depths of Hell.

The devil sidles up to him and says, "Pretty hot down here, isn't it?"

The old farmer says, "No, not really."

The devil goes over to a thermometer and turns up the heat and retorts, "What do you think now?"

The old farmer replies, "I was a wheat farmer in Eastern Washington for more than 70 years. I know what hot is, and this isn't it."

This really ticks off the devil, so he goes over to the thermostat and cranks it all the way up. "What do you think now?" he asks with a snort.

The farmer gets out his handkerchief, wipes his brow and replies, "It's warm, but have you ever sat on a tractor in the Palouse in the middle of August? Now that's hot."

Angrily, the devil storms over to the thermostat and turns the temperature all the way down. Suddenly, everything is freezing, with long icicles hanging from the ceiling.

"Well what do you think of that!" roars the devil.

All the farmer can do is giggle. "What's so funny?" asks the devil. The farmer can't answer because he's on his hands and knees laughing with delight. "I said, what's so funny!" the devil roars.

Finally the farmer gets up, wipes the tears of joy from his eyes and replies, "Looks like the Cougars are going to the Rose Bowl!"
During an off-day in the Cougs practice preparation for the Rose Bowl, one of their quarterbacks thought he would take advantage of the break in southern California and visit one of America's biggest theme parks.

As he neared the park in his rental car, he noticed a big sign ahead on the highway.


With that, he sighed, turned around and headed back to the hotel.
So, a guy walks into a bar laughing his butt off. He goes up to the bartender and says: "I've got the greatest joke about those dumbasses over at WSU"

The bartender says to him: "I've watched every WSU game since I was ten years old. The two bouncers went to WSU, and those four guys in the corner are WSU's Defensive Line. Do you still wanna tell that joke?"

"Hell no, I don't have time to explain it seven times."
A pretty blonde woman from the U of W is driving down a country road near Pullman in her new sports car when something goes wrong with the car and it breaks down. Luckily, she happens to be near a farmhouse. She goes up to the farmhouse and knocks on the door. When the farmer answers, she says to him, "Oh, it's Sunday night and my car broke down! I don't know what to do! Can I stay here for the night until tomorrow when I can get some help?

"Well," drawls the farmer, "you can stay here, but I don't want you messin' with my sons Jed and Luke, they are studying for their finals over at WSU. She looks through the screen door and sees two young men standing behind the farmer. She judges them to be in the early twenties.

"Okay," she says.

After they have gone to bed for the night the woman begins to think about the two Cougs in the room next to her. They are not too bright it seems, but they are so handsome. So she quietly goes into their room and says, "Boys, how would you like for me to teach you the ways of the world?"

They say, "Huh?"

She says, "The only thing is, I don't want to get pregnant, so you have to wear these rubbers." She puts them on the boys, and the three of them go at it all night long.

Four years later Jed and Luke are sitting on the front porch,rocking back and forth. Thinking about their day off from the new McDonald's in Colfax.

Jed says, "Luke?"

Luke says, "Yeah, Jed?"

Jed says, "You remember that blond woman that came by here about four years ago and showed us the ways of the world?"

"Yeah," says Luke, "I remember."

"Well, do you care if she gets pregnant?" asks Jed.

"Nope," says Luke, "I reckon not."

"Me, neither," says Jed, "Let's take these things off."
Seems that a Coug was driving West from Pullman at the same time a Husky was driving East from Seattle and they happened to meet head-on in a horrible crash on top of Snoqualmie Pass.

Miraculously, both climbed out of the steaming wreckage...their bodies intact. They examined the twisted metal and realized that they were truly lucky to be alive.

The Coug said, "This must be a sign from God that we should end the bitter rivalry that we have had since the beginning of time." The Husky agreed...he went to his trunk and pulled out an unbroken bottle of whiskey. "This is truly remarkable," he said, "God must want us to toast our new-found friendship."

He twisted the cap off and handed the bottle to the Coug, who took several big swigs, wiped his chin and handed the bottle back. The Husky replaced the cap, and without a word, put the bottle back into his trunk.

"Aren't you going to celebrate our luck?" asked the Coug.

"Nah, I think I'll just wait for the troopers to get here."
A Husky fan, a Coug fan, and a Ducks fan were driving to the Rose Bowl together when their car broke down. They walked down the road to a farmhouse and inquired if they could spend the night.

The farmer said, "sure, but one of you will have to sleep in the barn as there is not enough room in the house."

The Husky fan said, "I'll do it."

A little while later there was a knock on the door, it was the Husky fan. He said, "I'm allergic to chickens and there are chickens in the barn." So the Ducks fan left to stay in the barn.

A little while later there was again a knock on the door, it was the Ducks fan. He said, "I'm allergic to pigs and there are pigs in the barn." So the Cougs fan left to stay in the barn.

A little while later there was again a knock on the door, it was the chickens and the pigs!
A ventriloquist from Seattle walked into a bar just off the Washington State University campus and asked the manager if he could do a little performance. The manager thought no harm could be done and agreed.

The ventriloquist grabbed a stool, sat down and began telling jokes about the WSU football team. Suddenly, a huge man wearing a Cougar T-shirt walked over and said, "Listen buddy, I don't know who you think you are, telling all these jokes about our football team. I for one will not put up with it!"

The ventriloquist quickly apologized and said he would leave. The large man exclaimed "I'm not talking to you! I'm talking to that little man sitting on your lap!"
911 Operator: "911, what's your emergency?"

Coug: "My wife has been mauled by our pit bull! Please send an ambulance quickly!"

911 Operator: "What's your address, sir?"

Coug: "573 Eucalyptus Drive."

911 Operator: "Please spell that street for me, sir."

There was a moment of silence.

Coug: "I'll drag her down to Oak Street and you can pick her up there."
Two students from UW and one from WSU are all on death row awaiting execution by electric chair. The first UW student is strapped to the chair and is asked, "Do you have anything you want to say before we throw the switch?" And he says, "Yes sir, I just want to say I'm an innocent man." The warden chuckles a bit to himself then nods to the man at the switch. The switch is thrown and . . . absolutely nothing happens. The warden is amazed. "Son, the Lord seems to have given you a second chance. Maybe you really ARE innocent. We're gonna let you go free."

The second UW student is then strapped to the chair. The warden says, "All right, have you got anything to say?" The student says, "Yes sir. I admit that I did kill that feller, but it was all in self defense. I never did it in cold blood." The warden chuckles and nods to the man at the switch, who throws it and . . . absolutely nothing happens. "Well I'll be damned," says the warden, "you must be tellin' the truth too! Let 'em go, boys!" And they unstrap him and set him free.

Finally they bring the WSU student to the chair and strap him in. The warden says, "Now, do YOU have anything to say?" And the WSU student says, "Sure! If you switched that red wire with that green wire over there, this thing might work!"
