Rules for Bedroom Golf
Each player shall furnish his own equipment for play, normally one club and=
Play on course must be approved by the owner of the hole.
Unlike outdoor golf, the object is to get the club in the hole and keep the=
For most effective play, the club should have a firm shaft. Course owners a=
re permitted to check shaft stiffness before play begins.
Course owners reserve the right to restrict club length to avoid damage to =
Object of the game is to take as many strokes as necessary until the owner =
is satisfied play is complete. Failure to do so may result in being denied =
permission to play again.
It is considered bad form to begin playing the hole immediately upon arriva=
l. Experienced players will normally take time to admire the entire course,=
paying special attention to well formed mounds and bunkers.
Players are cautioned not to mention other courses they have played or are =
currently playing to the owner of the course being played. Upset owners hav=
e been known to damage a players equipment for this reason.
Players are encouraged to have proper rain gear, just in case.
Players should not assume that the course is in shape to play at all times.=
Players may be embarrassed if they find the course temporarily under repai=
r. Players are advised to be extremely tactful in this situation. More adva=
nced players will find alternate means of play when this is the case.
Players should assume their match has been properly scheduled particularly =
when playing a new course for the 1st time. Previous players have been know=
n to become irate if they discover someone else is playing what they consid=
ered a private course.
The owner of the course is responsible for the pruning of any bushes, which=
may reduce the visibility of the hole.
Players are strongly advised to get the owners permission before attempting=
to play the backside.
Slow play is encouraged, however, players should be prepared to proceed at =
a quicker pace at the owners request.
It is considered an outstanding performance, time permitting, to play the s=
ame hole several times in one match.

The History of the Middle Finger.
Well, now...... here's something I never knew before, and now that I know i=
t, I feel compelled to send it on to my more intelligent friends in the hop=
e that they, too, will feel edified. Isn't history more fun when you know s=
omething about it?
Before the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, the French, anticipating victory ov=
er the English, proposed to cut off the middle finger of all captured Engli=
sh soldiers. Without the middle finger it would be impossible to draw the r=
enowned English longbow and therefore they would be incapable of fighting i=
n the future. This famous English longbow was made of the native English Ye=
w tree, and the act of drawing the longbow was known as "plucking the yew" =
(or "pluck yew"). Much to the bewilderment of the French, the English won a=
major upset and began mocking the French by waving their middle fingers at=
the defeated French, saying,
See, we can still pluck yew!
Since 'pluck yew' is rather difficult to say, the difficult consonant clust=
er at the beginning has gradually changed to a labiodentals fricative F', a=
nd thus the words often used in conjunction with the one-finger-salute! It =
is also because of the pheasant feathers on the arrows used with the longbo=
w that the symbolic gesture is known as "giving the bird."
IT IS STILL AN APPROPRIATE SALUTE TO THE FRENCH TODAY!
And yew thought yew knew every plucking thing

Try this - I dare you!
If you are ready for the adventure of a lifetime, TRY THIS:
Enter Pakistan, Afghanistan, Indonesia, Malaysia or Iraq illegally. Never m=
ind immigration quotas, visas, international law, or any of that nonsense.
Once there, demand that the local government provide free medical care for =
you and your entire family.
Demand bilingual nurses and doctors. Demand free bilingual local government=
forms, bulletins, etc. Procreate abundantly.
Deflect any criticism of this allegedly irresponsible reproductive behaviou=
r with, "It is a cultural thing; you wouldn't understand mate."
Keep your Australian identity strong.
Fly the your national flag from your rooftop, or proudly display it in your=
front window or on your car bumper.
Speak only English at home and in public and insist that your children do l=
Demand classes on English and Australian culture in the Muslim school syste=
Demand a local Country driver license. This will afford other legal rights =
and will go far to legitimise your unauthorised, illegal, presence in Pakis=
tan, Afghanistan, Indonesia, Malaysia or Iraq.
Drive around with no liability insurance and ignore local traffic laws.
Insist that local Country, law enforcement teach English to all its officer=
Good luck! You'll soon be dead.
Because it will never happen in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Indonesia, Malaysia =
or Iraq or any other country in the world except right here in Australia.
For we are run by soft, politically correct politicians, that are too scare=
d to "offend" anyone.
If you agree, pass it on.
If you don't, go ahead and try the above in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Indonesi=
a, Malaysia or Iraq.
[Editor's Note: I'm not sure this works in Iraq Bob. In 2003 many illegal=
Australians entered Iraq, and only Iraqis seem to continue dying as a resu=
lt ... except for one legal press guy and an illegal entrant who shot himse=

A rabbit walks into a pub
A rabbit walks into a pub and says to the barman "Can I have a Pint of beer=
and a Ham and Cheese Toastie?". The barman is amazed but gives the rabbit =
a pint of beer and a ham and cheese toastie. The rabbit drinks the beer and=
eats the toastie, he then leaves.
The following night the rabbit returns and again asks for a Pint of Beer an=
d a Ham and Cheese Toastie. The barman, now intrigued by the rabbit and the=
extra drinkers in the pub (because word gets round) gives the rabbit the p=
int and the toastie. The rabbit consumes them and leaves.
The next night, the pub is packed, in walks the rabbit and says "A pint of =
beer and a Ham and Cheese Toastie, please barman". The crowd is hushed as t=
he barman gives the rabbit his pint and toastie and then burst into applaus=
e as the rabbit wolfs them down.
The next night there is standing room only in the pub, coaches have been la=
id on for the crowds of patrons attending, the barman is making more money =
in one week than he did all last year. In walks the rabbit and says, "A Pin=
t of Beer and a Ham and Cheese Toastie, please barman", smiling and accepti=
ng the tributes of the masses. The barman says, "I'm sorry rabbit, old mate=
, old mucker but we are right out of them Ham and Cheese Toasties". The rab=
bit looks aghast, the crowd has quietened to almost a whisper, when the bar=
man clears his throat nervously and says, "We do have a very nice Cheese an=
d Onion Toastie". The rabbit looks him in the eye and says, "Are you sure I=
will like it?" The masses bated breath is ear shatteringly silent. The bar=
man, with a roguish smile says "Do you think that I would let down one of m=
y best friends, I know you'll love it". "Ok" says the rabbit," I'll have a =
Pint of Beer and a Cheese and Onion Toastie".
The pub erupts with glee as the rabbit quaffs the beer and guzzles the toas=
tie, he then waves to the crowd and leaves....
=2E.... NEVER TO RETURN!!!!!!
One year later in the now impoverished public house, the barman (who has on=
ly served 4 drinks tonight, 3 of which were his) calls time. When he is cle=
aning down the now empty bar, he sees a small white form, floating above th=
e bar. The barman says, "Who are you" To which he is answered, "I am the gh=
ost of the rabbit that used to frequent your public house". The barman says=
, "I remember you, you made me famous, you would come in every night and ha=
ve a Pint of Beer and a Ham and Cheese Toastie, masses came to see you and =
this place was famous" The rabbit says, "Yes I know". The barman said, "I r=
emember, on your last night we didn't have any Ham and Cheese Toasties, you=
had a Cheese and Onion one instead" The rabbit said "Yes, you promised me =
that I would love it". The barman said "You never came back, what happened?=
"I DIED", said the Rabbit.

Old Dog New tricks
A wealthy old lady decides to go on a photo safari in Africa, taking her fa=
ithful but aged dog named Cuddles, along for the company.
One day Cuddles starts chasing butterflies and before long, she discovers t=
hat she's lost. Wandering about, she notices a leopard heading rapidly in h=
er direction with the intention of having lunch.
The old dog thinks, "Oh, man, I'm in deep doo-doo now!"
Noticing some bones on the ground close by, she immediately settles down to=
chew on the bones with her back to the approaching cat. Just as the leopar=
d is about to leap, Cuddles exclaims loudly, "Boy, that was one delicious l=
eopard! I wonder if there are any more around here?"
Hearing this, the young leopard halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of t=
error comes over him and he slinks away into the trees. "Whew!", says the l=
eopard, "That was close! That old dog nearly had me!"
Meanwhile, a monkey who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tre=
e, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protectio=
n from the leopard. So off he goes, but Cuddles sees him heading after the =
leopard with great speed, and figures that something must be up. The monkey=
soon catches up with the leopard, spills the beans and strikes a deal for =
himself with the leopard. The young leopard is furious at being made a fool=
of and says, "Here, monkey, hop on my back and see what's going to happen =
to that conniving canine!"
Now, the wise old dog sees the leopard coming with the monkey on his back a=
nd thinks, "What am I going to do now?", but instead of running, the dog si=
ts down with her back to her attackers, pretending she hasn't seen them yet=
, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old girl says: "Where's =
that damn monkey? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another leopard!"

The Scotsman's Kilt
In Scotland, the most important time for a young lad is when he "comes of a=
ge" and is allowed to purchase and wear his first kilt. A couple of weeks b=
efore his important birthday, a young lad went to a tailor shop and found t=
he material he wanted for his first kilt. He took the material to the tailo=
r and said, "I'd like ye to make me a kilt with this material here and, if =
ye don't mind, I'd like ye to make me a pair of matching underwear for it. =
I hear it gets a might drafty up dem tings!"
So the tailor took the material and promised to call the young lad when the=
order was completed. A few days later the tailor called the lad back to th=
e shop. "Here's ye kilt, and here's ye matching underwear, and here's five =
yards of the material left over. Ye might want to take it home and keep it =
in case you want anything else made of it."
So the lad rushed home with his order, threw the material in his room, and =
donned his kilt. In his excitement, he decided to run to his girlfriend's h=
ouse to show off his new purchase. Unfortunately, in his excitement, he for=
got to don his underwear.
When his girlfriend answered the door, he pointed to his kilt and said, "we=
ll, what'd ye think?"
"Ah, but dat's a fine looking kilt," she exclaimed.
"Aye, and if ye like it, ye'll really like what's underneath," he stated as=
he lifted his kilt to show her.
"Oh, but dat's a dandy," his girlfriend shouted admiringly.
Still not realizing that he didn't have his underwear on he exclaimed quite=
proudly, "aye, and if ye like it, I've got five more yards of it at home!"

A mom and dad were worried about their son not wanting to learn math at the=
school he was in, so they decided to send him to a Catholic school. After =
the first day of school, their son comes racing into the house, goes straig=
ht into his room and slams the door shut. Mom and dad are a little worried =
about this and go to his room to see if he is okay. They find him sitting a=
t his desk doing his homework. The boy keeps doing that for the rest of the=
year. At the end of the year the son brings home his report card and gives=
it to his mom and dad. Looking at it they see under math an A+.
Mom and dad are very happy and ask the son, "What changed your mind about l=

Barbara: "I think I know who it.. but I'm not 100%... No, I haven't got a c=

Regis: "Yes, who, Barbara, do you want to phone?
Barbara: "I'll phone my friend Maggie back home in Birmingham."

Regis: "Hello Maggie, its Regis here from Who Wants to be a Millionaire-I h=

It was April and the Aboriginals in a remote part of northern Australia ask=
ed their new elder if the coming winter was going to be cold or mild. Since=
he was an elder in a modern community he had never been taught the old sec=
rets. When he looked at the sky he couldn't tell what the winter was going =
to be like. Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he told his tribe that th=
e winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the tribe shou=
ld collect firewood to be prepared.
But being a practical leader, after several days he had an idea. He walked =
out to the telephone booth on the highway, called the Bureau of Meteorology=
and asked, "Is the coming winter in this area going to be cold?" The meteo=
rologist responded, "It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold." =
So the elder went back to his people and told them to collect even more woo=
d in order to be prepared.
A week later he called the Bureau of Meteorology again. "Does it still look=
like it is going to be a very cold winter?" The meteorologist again replie=
d, "Yes, it's going to be a very cold winter." The elder again went back to=
his community and ordered them to collect every scrap of firewood they cou=
Two weeks later the elder called the Bureau again. "Are you absolutely sure=
that the winter is going to be very cold?" he asked. "Absolutely," the man=
replied. "It's looking more and more like it is going to be one of the col=

SPEECH BY BILL GATES to some students in a school
Love him or hate him, he sure hits the nail on the head with this! To anyon=
e with children of any age, here's some good advice.
Gates recently gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not =
and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically cor=
rect teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and =
how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.
Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!
Rule 2: The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect =
you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.
Rule 3: You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won'=
t be a vice-president with a car phone until you earn both.
Rule 4: If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.
Rule 5: Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had=
a different word for burger flipping: they called it opportunity.
Rule 6: If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, so don't whine about =
your mistakes, learn from them.
Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are no=
w. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and list=
ening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save t=
he rain forest from the parasites of your parent's generation, try delousin=
g the closet in your own room.
Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HA=
S NOT. In some schools, they have abolished failing grades and they'll give=
you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear t=
he slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.
Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don't get summers off and v=
ery few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on y=
our own time.
Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to =
leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.
Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you'll end up working for one.
If you can read this - thank a teacher!
If you agree, pass it on.
Life is what we make it. Always has been. Always will be.

He comes in and sits down. The doctor asks him all of his personal info. Th=
en he also asks him, "What's 5 plus 5?"
He answers, " Man, that's easy... it's 10."
The doctor says, "That's good, now how did you get that?"
The patient said, " Well, I just subtracted 37 from Thursday."

Neighbor 1: "That is right"

The Cowboy and the Yuppie:
A West Texas cowboy was herding his cattle in a remote pasture when suddenl=
y a Brand new BMW advanced out of a dust cloud towards him.
The driver, a young man :cool: in a Brioni suit, Gucci shoes, Ray Ban sungl=
asses and YSL tie, leans out the window and asks the cowboy,
"If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, will=
you give me a calf?"
The cowboy looks at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looks at his peaceful=
ly grazing herd and calmly answers,
"Sure, Why not?"
The yuppie parks his car, whips out his Dell notebook computer, connects it=
to his AT&T cell phone, and surfs to a NASA page on the Internet, compute:=
where he calls up a GPS satellite navigation system to get an exact fix on=
his location which he then feeds to another NASA satellite that scans the =
area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.
The young man opens the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop and exports it to =
an image processing facility in Hamburg, Germany. Within seconds, he receiv=
es an e-mail on his Palm Pilot that the image has been processed and the da=
ta stored. He then accesses a MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected exc=
el spreadsheet with e-mail on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, rece=
ives a response.
Finally, he prints out a full color, 150 page report on his Hi-tech miniatu=
rized HP Laser Jet printer and finally turns to the cowboy and says,
"You have exactly 1586 cows and calves."
"That's right. Well, I guess you can take one of my calves," says the cowbo=
He watches the young man selects one of the animals and looks on amused as =
the young man stuffs it into the trunk of his car.
Then the cowboy says to the young man, "Hey, if I can tell you exactly wha=
t your business is, will you give me back my calf?"
The young man thinks about it for a second and then says,
"Okay, why not?"
"You're a consultant for the Federal Government." says the cowboy.
"Wow! That's correct," says the yuppie, "but how did you guess that?"
"No guessing required." answered the cowboy. "You showed up here even thoug=
h nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to =
a question I never asked. You tried to show me how much smarter than me you=
are; and you don't know a damn thing about Cattle. Now give me back my dog=
