Friday humour - September 14, 2007
Gidday from Deano,
It has been a big week here on Oz with the APEC meeting and many special
guests. The most prominent was George Dubya Bush. What an incredible
show! A couple of jumbos, heaps of armoured cars, an entourage of about
1000 including catering corp of chefs (35?), political advisors, security
specialists, secret service men talking into the cuffs of their black
suits and not to mention white house aides (anyone seen Monica??). The
Chinese and Russian presidents arrive and they have a small effective
security contingent that pales into insignificance compared to George’s
amazing roadshow. The feral govmint invested in $250 million dollars worth
of security and then we have a TV comedy crew hire a couple of big black
American style cars and manage to get through 2 security check points –
notwithstanding that they showed their “in-security” passes to check point
personnel. Instead of this highlighting the complete waste of taxpayers
money for security that did not work, the Chaser Click here
TV crew face possible jail for breaching the “security”. Of course
central Sydney was completely closed off with a 10 feet high “rabble proof
fence” making life difficult for the ordinary person to go about their
business. One suggestion I heard to ensure the security of heads of state
and not put us taxpayers/residents into total disruption, is to park one of
the US Navy’s huge aircraft carriers a few kilometres offshore and fly the
guests out by helicopter. No roads to block off, no huge fences and if
the rabble tries to gatecrash, just chuck them into the water for the
sharks to feed on!
Now, onto the humour with my favourite this week from Muse:

They Walk Among Us!
Some guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge,
he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying: "Free to good
home. You want it, you take it." For three days the fridge sat there
without even one person looking twice at it. He eventually decided that
people were too un-trusting of this deal. It looked too good to be true,
so he changed the sign to read: "Fridge for sale $50." The next day
someone stole it.

direction was north because, he explained, he didn't want the sun waking
him up every morning. She asked, "Does the sun rise in the north?" When my

shook her head and said, "Oh, I don't keep up with that stuff."

I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center. One day I got a
call from an individual who asked what hours the call center was open. I

He responded, "Is that Eastern or Pacific time?" Wanting to end the call
quickly, I said, "Uh, Pacific".

BEIJING (Reuters) - A Chinese woman is suing her former employer after
falling victim to the company policy of firing staff who contradict their
boss three times, local media reported on Thursday.
HWA-1 Enterprise Co Ltd, a light industrial manufacturer based in China's
south-eastern port city of Xiamen, sacked a woman surnamed Ni for refusing
to pay fines she incurred for talking back to superiors, Xinhua news agency
said, citing a local newspaper.
The company's policy held that a "first contradiction of superiors" would
incur a fine of 30 yuan (2 pounds), a second would incur 100 yuan, and a
third would warrant dismissal, the agency said.
Ni incurred a 30 yuan fine after taking umbrage with her factory supervisor
for reprimanding her for not filling in a form.
"The factory head told me that, according to company rules, no matter
whether management is right or wrong, employees are not allowed to
contradict them and must obey," Xinhua quoted Ni as saying.
Ni was then threatened with a 100 yuan fine for refusing to pay the first
fine, and was sacked after she threatened to report her supervisor to the
company's human resource's department.
The factory's supervisor, surnamed Cao, said it was his legal right to sack
"The company can terminate the contract of employees who seriously breach
labour discipline or the company's rules," Xinhua quoted Cao as saying.

1. A man comes into the ER and yells, "My wife's going to have her baby in
the cab!" I grabbed my stuff, rushed out to the cab, lifted the lady's
dress, and began to take off her underwear. Suddenly I noticed that there
were several cabs ---and I was in the wrong one.

4. During a patient's two week follow-up appointment with his cardiologist,
he informed me, his doctor, that he was having trouble with one of his
medications. "Which one?" I asked.
"The patch, the Nurse told me to put on a new one every six hours and now
I'm running out of places to put it!"
I had him quickly undress and discovered what I hoped I wouldn't see. Yes,
the man had over fifty patches on his body! Now, the instructions include
removal of the old patch before applying a new one.

up on a woman I asked, "So how's your breakfast this morning?"

Question from a recent UK survey:
Are there too many foreigners in this country now?
20%: YES 10% : NO 70% :ÈæÇÔäØãÚåÏ ÇáÃãä ÇáÚÇáãí
Subject: Five or nine inches, Sir?
A man wakes up in hospital, bandaged from head to foot. The doctor comes in
and says 'Ah, I see you've regained consciousness. Now you probably won't
remember, but you were in a pile-up on the motorway.' You're going to be
OK, you'll walk again, everything, but something happened. I'm trying to
break this gently but your willy was chopped off in the wreck and we were
unable to find it.'
Now the bloke groans a bit but the doctor goes on, 'You've got £9000
compensation coming to you and we have the technology now to build you a
new willy that will work as well as your old one did, better in fact. But
the thing is, it doesn't come cheap. It's a thousand pounds an inch.' The
bloke perks up at this. “So the thing is” the doctor says, “it's for you
to decide how many inches you want, but it's something you'd better
discuss with your wife. I mean, if you had a five inch one before and you
decide to go for a nine incher she might be a bit put out. But if you had
a nine inch one before and you decide only to invest in a five incher this
time she might be disappointed. So it's important that she plays a role in
helping you make the decision.'
So the bloke agrees to talk with his wife and the doctor comes back the
So says the doctor 'Have you spoken with your wife?'

THE COMPUTER SWALLOWED GRANDMA
The computer swallowed grandma.
Yes, honestly its true!
She pressed 'control' and 'enter'
And disappeared from view.
It devoured her completely,
The thought just makes me squirm.
She must have caught a virus
Or been eaten by a worm.
I've searched through the recycle bin
And files of every kind;
I've even used the Internet,
But nothing did I find.
In desperation, I asked Google
My searches to refine.
The reply from him was negative,
Not a thing was found 'online.'
So, if inside your 'Inbox,'
My Grandma you should see,
Please 'Copy,''Scan' and 'Paste' her
And send her back to me.
This is a tribute to all the Grandmas who have been fearless and learned to
use the Computer........
A teacher noticed that a little boy at the back of the class was squirming
around, scratching his crotch and not paying attention. She went back to
find out what was going on. He was quite embarrassed and whispered that
something was wrong with his thing and he was quite itchy.
The teacher told him to go down to the principal's office. He was to phone
his mother and ask her what he should do about it. He did it and returned
to his class.
Suddenly, there was a commotion at the back of the room. She went back to
investigate only to find him sitting at his desk with his penis hanging
"I thought I told you to call your Mom." she screamed.
"I did," he said,
"and she told me that if I could stick it out till noon she'd come and pick
me up from school."
For anyone who has ever worked in corporate America, the tribal wisdom of
the Dakota Indians, passed on from one generation to the next, says that
when you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is
to dismount. But in modern business (and EDUCATION and GOVERNMENT) because
heavy investment factors are taken into consideration, other strategies are
often tried with dead horses, including the following:
1. Buying a stronger whip.
2. Change the riders.
3. Threatening the horse with termination.
4. Appointing a committee to study the horse.
5. Arranging to visit other sites to see how they ride dead horses.
6. Lowering the standards so that dead horses can be included.
7. Reclassifying the dead horse as "living-impaired."
8. Hiring outside contractors to ride the dead horse.
9. Harnessing several dead horses together to increase speed.
10. Providing additional funding and/or training to increase the dead
11. Doing a productivity study to see if lighter riders would improve the
dead horse's performance.
12. Declaring that the dead horse carries lower overhead and therefore
contributes more to the bottom line then some other horses.
13. Rewriting the expected performance requirements for all horses.
And, as a final strategy:
14. Promoting the dead horse to a supervisory position. The sad thing is,
we see this every day.
One day, a man came home and was greeted by his wife dressed in a very sexy
nightie. "Tie me up," she purred, "and you can do anything you want."
So he tied her up and went golfing.
A woman came home, screeching her car into the driveway, and ran into the
house. She slammed the door and shouted at the top of her lungs, "Honey,
pack your bags. I won the lottery!"
The husband said, "Oh my God! What should I pack, beach stuff or mountain
stuff?" "Doesn't matter," she said. "Just get out."
Marriage is a relationship in which one person is always right, and the
other is a husband.
A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband. Suddenly, her
husband burst into the kitchen.
Careful," he said, "CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my GOD! You're
cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need
more butter. Oh my GOD! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER?
They're going to STICK! Careful CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER
listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you
CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you
always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!"
The wife stared at him. "What in the world is wrong with you? You think I
don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?"
The husband calmly replied, "I just wanted to show you what it feels like
when I'm driving."

THE FLAT TIRE
Four college friends, afflicted with spring fever, they decided to go up to
Dallas and party with some friends up there. They had a great time.
However, after all the partying, they slept all day Sunday and didn't make
it back to Austin until early Monday morning. Rather than taking a
scheduled final, they decided to find their professor after the final and
explain to him why they missed it.
They explained that they had gone to Dallas for the weekend, with the plan
to come back and study, but unfortunately they had a flat tire on the way
back, didn't have a spare, and couldn't get help for a long time. As a
result, they missed the final.
The professor thought it over and then agreed they could make up the final
the following day. The guys were elated and relieved. They studied that
night and went in the next day at the time the professor had told them. He
placed them in separate rooms and handed each of them a test booklet and
told them to begin. They looked at the first problem, worth 5 points. It
was something simple about free radical formation. "Cool," they thought at
the same time, each one in his separate room. "This is going to be easy."
Each finished the problem and then turned the page. On the second page was
written: (For 95 points): Which tire went flat?
SCHOOL ANSWERING MACHINE
(This is hilarious - no wonder some people were offended!)
This is the message that the Pacific Palisades High School (California)
staff voted unanimously to record on their school telephone answering
machine. This is the actual answering machine message for the school. This
came about because they implemented a policy requiring students and parents
to be responsible for their children's absences and missing homework. The
school and teachers are being sued by parents who want their children's
failing grades changed to passing grades - even though those children were
absent 15-30 times during the semester and did not complete enough
schoolwork to pass their classes.
The outgoing message: "Hello! You have reached the automated answering
service of your school. In order to assist you in connecting to the right
staff member, please listen to all the options before making a selection:
* To lie about why your child is absent - Press 1
* To make excuses for why your child did not do his work- Press 2
* To complain about what we do - Press 3
* To swear at staff members - Press 4
* To ask why you didn't get information that was already enclosed in your
newsletter and several flyers mailed to you - Press 5
* If you want us to raise your child - Press 6
* If you want to reach out and touch, slap or hit someone -Press 7
* To request another teacher, for the third time this year -Press 8
* To complain about bus transportation - Press 9
* To complain about school lunches - Press 0
* If you realize this is the real world and your child must be accountable
and responsible for his/her own behavior, class work, homework and that
it's not the teachers' fault for your child's lack of effort: Hang up and
have a nice day!
*If you want this in Spanish, you must be in the wrong country.

Aries (March 21 - April 19) - You will discover a bassoon player hiding in
the shrubbery. That's not something you should try to deal with yourself
-- call in the professionals.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20) - Slow day today. Surprisingly, it will be due
to a time/space anomaly caused by a localized anti-tachyon surge, and will
mainly occur in your neighborhood. Time flow should return to normal soon.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20) - You will have an enormously exciting day,
today, compared to your usual day. You will find the prize in the cereal
Cancer (June 21 - July 22) - You will make several somewhat inadvisable
impulse purchases today. Fortunately, you will be able to return all of
them, except for the Hormel "100 Years Of SPAM!" decorative wall clock.
Leo (July 23 - August 22) - Today you will have a lot of trouble with non
sequiturs. Pizza doesn't have to have cheese, you know.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22) - You need to work harder on your
friendships. Why, you sometimes don't even like yourself that much, do
you? Be nice to yourself this week - buy yourself some flowers or a nice
gift. And stop suspecting yourself of having an ulterior motive!
Libra (September 22 - October 22) - Good day to act extremely childish.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21) - A brilliant idea for a new hand tool
will strike you today, but it will be years too late. People these days
are much less likely to buy an "M.C. Hammer" than they would have been a
few years ago. If you're really intent on being an inventor, you should
come up with a "drum roll", which you can sell to Pillsbury. Ta dah dum.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21) - You will make some new friends
today. One of them will be on some sort of "sacred quest", which will make
a good ice-breaker. ("So...what's with the coconuts?")
Capricorn (December 22 - January 20) - Your relatives may try to have you
committed, today. Luckily, through a series of amusing misadventures, they
will fail. You and your large invisible friend will simply shrug it off, of
course, since it's not in your disposition to hold a grudge.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 18) - In one of those amusing mix-ups that
happen so frequently in modern life, a friend of yours will have mistaken
your reference to "her suit" and thought you said "hirsute." Still, this
may prove a little awkward.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20) - Excellent day to come up with new
theories to explain the universe around you. Remember: the simplest
explanation is usually the best. For example, most physicists today
subscribe to the "Big Band" theory of the creation of the universe. I have
an alternate theory that I prefer, which I call "Tuba Ensemble."

In a small town in the US, there is a rather sizable factory that hires
only married men.
Concerned about this, a local woman called on the manager and asked him,
"Why is it you limit your employees to married men? Is it because you
think women are weak, dumb, cantankerous... or what?"
"Not at all, Ma'am," the manager replied. "It is because our employees are
used to obeying orders, are accustomed to being shoved around, know how to
keep their mouths shut and don't pout when I yell at them."

Four life-long friends, a doctor, lawyer, professor, and an executive,
belonging to the same exclusive club had made a pact. When one dies, they
agreed, the others will lay $5,000 each on his coffin so he'll have some
spending money in the after life. Well, one day the professor passes away.
At his funeral the three friends took turns going up to the coffin and
paying their respects. The doctor was first, laying 50 $100 bills inside
the casket. Next was the executive, tearfully placing his $5,000 cash next
to his deceased friend.
Then the lawyer approached the coffin wrote out a check for $15,000, laid
it in the casket, and picked up the 10 grand in cash.
A man was sick and tired of going to work every day while his wife stayed
at home. He wanted her to see what he went through so he prayed:
"Dear Lord: I go to work every day and put in 8 hours while my wife merely
stays at home. I want her to know what I go through, so please allow her
body to switch with mine for a day. Amen.
God, in his infinite wisdom, granted the man's wish.
The next morning, sure enough, the man awoke as a woman. He arose, cooked
breakfast for his mate, awakened the kids, set out their school clothes,
fed them breakfast, packed their lunches, drove them to school, came home
and picked up the dry cleaning, took it to the cleaners and stopped at the
bank to make a deposit, went grocery shopping, then drove home to put away
the groceries, paid the bills and balanced the check book. He cleaned the
cat's litter box and bathed the dog. Then it was already 1 P.M. and he
hurried to make the beds, do the laundry, vacuum, dust, and sweep and mop
the kitchen floor. Ran to the school to pick up the kids and got into an
argument with them on the way home. Set out milk and cookies and got the
kids organized to do their homework, then set up the ironing board and
watched TV while he did the ironing.
At 4:30 he began peeling potatoes and washing vegetables for salad, breaded
the pork chops and snapped fresh beans for supper.
After supper, he cleaned the kitchen, ran the dishwasher, folded laundry,
bathed the kids, and put them to bed.
At 9 P.M. he was exhausted and, though his daily chores weren't finished,
he went to bed where he was expected to make love, which he managed to get
through without complaint.
The next morning, he awoke and immediately knelt by the bed and said: Lord,
I don't know what I was thinking. I was so wrong to envy my wife's being
able to stay home all day. Please, oh please, let us trade back."
The Lord, in his infinite wisdom, replied: "My son, I feel you have learned
your lesson and I will be happy to change things back to the way they were.
You'll just have to wait nine months, though. You got pregnant last night."

A woman's husband had been slipping in and out of a coma for several
months. Yet she had stayed by his bedside every single day. One day he
motioned for her to come nearer.
She sat by him, he whispered, eyes full of tears. 'You know what? You have
been with me all through the bad times.
When I got fired, you were there to support me.
When my business failed, you were there.
When I got shot, you were by my side.
When we lost the house, you stayed right here.
When my health started failing, you were still by my side...
You know what?'
'What dear? She gently asked, smiling as her heart began to fill with
'I think you're bad luck. Fuck off.'

The next day, police officers descend on Wazza's house in great numbers.
They search the house and then go out to the shed where the firewood is

The phone rings at Wazza's house. "Hey, Wazz, did the cops come?"
"Did they chop up your firewood?"

What do retired people do all day
Working people frequently ask retired people what they do to make their
Well, for example, the other day Christine and I went into town and went
into a shop. We were only in there for about 5 minutes. When we came
out, there was a traffic warden writing out a parking ticket. We went up
to him and said, "Come on man, how about giving a senior citizen a break?"
He ignored us and continued writing the ticket. I called him a turd. He
glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tyres.
So Christine called him a shithead. He finished the second ticket and put
it on the windscreen with the first. Then he started writing a third
ticket. This went on for about 20 minutes. The more we abused him, the
more tickets he wrote.
Personally, we didn't care. We came into town by bus. We try to have a

The second woman says, 'Well, my husband just bought me a new Mercedes,'

The third woman says, 'Well, to be perfectly honest with you, we don't have
much money and we don't have many material possessions, but 13 canaries can

After a long silence, the first woman looks shame-faced and says, 'Girls,

Hippopotamus and the Tortoise
" Much of life can never be explained but only witnessed."
- Rachel Naomi Remen, MD
NAIROBI (AFP) - A baby hippopotamus that survived the tsunami waves on the
Kenyan coast has formed a strong bond with a giant male century-old
tortoise in an animal facility in the port city of Mombassa , officials
said. The hippopotamus, nicknamed Owen and weighing about 300 kilograms
(650 pounds), was swept down Sabaki River into the Indian Ocean , then
forced back to shore when tsunami waves struck the Kenyan coast on
December 26, before wildlife rangers rescued him.
"It is incredible. A-less-than-a-year-old hippo has adopted a male
tortoise, about a century old, and the tortoise seems to be very happy
with being a 'mother'," ecologist Paula Kahumbu, who is in charge of
Lafarge Park , told AFP.
"After it was swept away and lost its mother, the hippo was traumatized. It
had to look for something to be a surrogate mother. Fortunately, it landed
on the tortoise and established a strong bond. They swim, eat and sleep
together," the ecologist added. "The hippo follows the tortoise exactly
the way it followed its mother. If somebody approaches the tortoise, the
hippo becomes aggressive, as if protecting its biological mother," Kahumbu
"The hippo is a young baby, he was left at a very tender age and by nature,
hippos are social animals that like to stay with their mothers for four
years," he explained.
"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments
that take our breath away."
This is a real story that shows that our differences don't matter much when
we need the comfort of another. We could all learn a lesson from these two
creatures of God,
"Look beyond the differences and find a way to walk the path together."

The object of the game is to move the red block around without getting hit

If you can go longer than 18 seconds you are phenomenal. It's been said
