     From Davo at Bluehaze:

   Yo - it's been a miserable cold week in Melbournetown.  Hopefully this
   selection of jokes will warm things up.  Like this two-liner from Biggus.

   What do you get when you goose a ghost?
   A handful of sheet.

   Firstly the solution to last weeks connundrum as posed by Tony.

   Michael Lim, currently in the US, won the chocolates writing ...

"Rob has ten piles of $1 coins, with each pile being identified (numbered
from one to ten) and a an accurate weighing scale. Each pile contains 10

He knows that one entire pile is counterfeit. He also knows the weight of a
genuine coin, and has furthermore been told that the counterfeit coins each
weigh one gram more than a genuine coin.

How can Rob determine which is the bogus pile in just one weighing operation?

By taking one coin from pile one, two coins from pile two and three coins
from pile three etc. And weight just once to figure out which pile is the

[  Tony's response   -   Yep, you got it (and so did Wayne more or less). As
you say above, take 1 from pile 1, 2 from pile 2 etc, which means you
normally get a pile with a total weight of X*(1+2+3+4+5+6+7+8+9+10) grams (X
being the weight of a normal coin, which you know).  This = 55X grams. So if
the total weight was (say) 55X+3 grams, you know that pile 3 is the
counterfeit one. If the total weight was 55X+7 grams, you know that pile 7
is the counterfeit one, and so on.  ]

First up this week a couple from our intrepid Minerals Administrator
Extraordinaire up at QCAT - Anne (JJJ) Porter

                             What's Sex

An 8 year old girl went to her dad who was working in the yard listening to
ABC youth radio JJJ, and asked,

"Daddy, what's sex ?" The father is surprised that she would ask such a
question, but decides that if she is old enough to ask the question, then
she is old enough to get an answer.

He tells her about the birds and the bees; the egg and the sperm; and the
male and the female.

When he had finished explaining, the little girl was looking at him with her
mouth opened, so her father asked her, " why did you ask such a question ?"

The little girl explained that, "Mum told me to tell you that dinner would
be ready in just a couple of secs.

Once upon a time a very old and once respected Australian company and a new,
progressive Japanese company decided to have a boat race on the Brisbane
River whilst listening to ABC youth radio JJJ.  Both teams practiced long
and hard to reach their peak performance. The Japanese company easily won.

After the race the Australian team became discouraged by their loss and
their morale sagged. The management of the Corporation decided that the
reason for their crushing defeat had to be found. Consequently a
"Performance Measurement Team " made up of "Senior Executives" was
established to investigate the problem and recommend corrective action.

Their conclusion

The problem was that the Japanese Team had 8 people rowing and one person
steering, whereas the Australian Team had 1 person rowing and 8 people
steering. The Australian Corporate Steering Committee immediately hired a
consulting firm to study the management structure of the team. After some
time and several draft reports the consulting firm concluded that, "too many
people were steering and not enough people were rowing".

To prevent losing to the Japanese team again the following year the
management structure was changed to " 4 Executive Steering Managers, 3
Regional Steering Managers and 1 District Steering Manager" and a new
performance incentive scheme was initiated for the person rowing the boat to
provide the incentive required to work harder and become an " Excellence
Rated " performer. Satisfaction, Empowerment and Enrichment was what it was
all about.

The next year the Japanese team won by an even greater margin. The
Australian company retrenched the rower for poor performance, sold the oars,
cancelled all planned capital improvements and halted further canoe
development. Special Recognition Awards were awarded to the consulting firm
and the money saved was distributed to the company Senior Executives as

And from Brett in the store

                             The Outdoor BBQ

   It's the only type of cooking a "real" man will do. When a man volunteers to
   do such cooking, the following chain of events is put into motion.

(1) The woman goes to the store.

(2) The woman fixes the salad, vegetables, and dessert.

(3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with
    the necessary cooking utensils, and takes it to the man, who is lounging
    beside the grill, drinking a beer.

(4) The man places the meat on the grill.

(5) The woman goes inside to set the table and check the vegetables.

(6) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is burning.

(7) The man takes the meat off the grill and hands it to the woman.

(8) The woman prepares the plates and brings them to the table.

(9) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.

(10)The man asks the woman how she enjoyed "her night off." And, upon seeing
    her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women.

A few quickies from Dave over at Highett

                        NEAR DEATH EXPERIENCE

A middle aged woman had a heart attack and was taken to the hospital.

While on the operating table she had a near death experience. Seeing God,
she asked, "Is my time up? " God said, "No, you have another 43 years, 2
months and 8 days to live".

Upon recovery, the woman decided to stay in the hospital and have a face
lift, liposuction and a tummytuck. Since she had so much more time to live,
she figured she might as well look even nicer.

After her last operation, she was released from the hospital.

While crossing the street on her way home, she was killed by an ambulance.

Arriving in front of God, she demanded, "I thought you said I had another
40+ years? How come you didn't pull me out of the path of that ambulance"?

God replied, "I didn't recognise you.

                                 GO GIRL!

An award should go to the Ansett Airlines gate attendant in Sydney for being
smart and funny, while making her point, when confronted with a passenger
who probably deserved to fly as cargo.

A crowded Ansett flight was cancelled after Ansett's 767s had been withdrawn
from service. A single attendant was re-booking a long line of inconvenienced
travellers. Suddenly an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped
his ticket down on the counter and said, "I HAVE to be on this flight and it

The attendant replied, "I'm sorry sir. I'll be happy to try to help you,
but I've got to help these people first, and I'm sure we'll be able to work
something out. " The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the
passengers behind him could hear, "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?"

Without hesitating, the attendant smiled and grabbed her public address
microphone: "May I have your attention please," she began - her voice heard
clearly throughout the terminal. "We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO
DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him find his identity, please
come to Gate 14."

With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the
Ansett attendant, gritted his teeth and said. "F*** You!"

Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm sorry, sir, but you'll have to
get in line for that, too".

And from Kevin in Arizona


  If you are currently suffering religious, racial or ethnic persecution or
  even financial hardships and are considering Australia as your destination,
  please consider the following:

1 Although Australia is a large continent, only small areas are actually
  worth living in and believe it or not these areas are already full of people.

2 The vast majority of the country is uninhabitable due to the large number
  of poisonous snakes, spiders and man eating crocodiles.

3 Due to the hole in the Ozone layer, you cannot live in the sun unprotected
  for more than 15 minutes and sunscreen costs exceed 40% of the average
  Australian wage.

4 Australia is in the process of beefing up their defence forces, F111
  Fighter bombers, Orion coastal patrol aircraft and Fa 18 aircraft all scour
  our oceans looking for your ships, while the world renowned and feared
  Collins class submarines are the invisible death lurking undetectable
  beneath our seas.

New Zealand would be a much more suitable place to go:

1 The land mass is virtually devoid of any population, most came to
  Australia years ago, unlike Australia, there's plenty of room!

2 During the last 1000 years or so any dangerous animal larger than a Pea
  has gone extinct from the Island, the Friendly Native Maori's have eaten
  them all.

3 The wonderful climate of New Zealand ensures clouds preserve you from the
  effects of dangerous UV radiation.

4 The New Zealand Defence force is currently in the process of selling it's
  remaining tigermoth biplane, Bill and Wazza of the New Zealand Navy have
  taken their tin Dingy and quit. Sailing into New Zealand is simplicity

  The beautiful scenery, The Maori's peaceful and friendly nature, promiscuous
  sheep and the joys of living in a first world country where water and power
  is available almost 80% of the time! Any currency you bring with you will
  instantly boost you to levels of wealth you never expected as New Zealand's
  exchange rate with your county of origin is bound to be favourable!

Listen to some testimonials:

Amatoli Hizradda: "At first I had my heart set on Australia, but with the
50 Drachmas change I had in my pocket, I've purchased a large farmhouse and
2000 sheep!"

Pong pen VNeue: " I'd never heard of New Zealand and when I got here I found
no Triads or gangs to hold me ransom, so I started one!"

Slobadan Milocovich: " I was suffering great hardships in my country due to
United Nations persecution, I'm safe here in New Zealand as the UN doesn't
even know it exists!"

The lovers passionately embraced on her bed, their bodies fused together as
they gyrated to their own tattoo. The woman cocked her ear, "Quick! My
husband's coming through the front door! Hide in the bathroom!" she cried.

The lover ran into the bathroom as she hid his clothes under the bed and as
she turned back, her husband came through the bedroom door.

"What are you doing lying on the bed naked?" he asked.

"Darling, I heard you coming up the drive and got ready to receive you." she
replied with a knowing smile.

"Great," he said, "I'll just nip into the bathroom and I'll be with you in
two shakes."

Before she could stop him, he was into the bathroom where he found a man
clapping his hands together in mid-air.

"Who the devil are you!"  the husband demanded.

"I'm from the exterminator company. Your wife called me in to get rid of
these pesky moths," the lover replied.

"But .. but you've got no clothes on?" stammered the husband.

The lover looked down, jumped backwards in an apparent surprise and said,
"Oh God, those little bastards!"
