Friday humour - April 04, 2008

[from Steve at Bluehaze]

Well, no matter how bad and desperate and arrogant we though politics had
got here in Oz, it was nothing compared to Zimbabwe. How to turn a viable
and prosperous country into a complete basket case in 26 years. And I bet
Mugabe gets off scot-free.

I have two favourites this week. I settled on the first one when I first
saw it, and then the second one came along and could not be left out
either. They are both greats within the same genre, and the second one
takes Mondegreens to a whole new level.

If you love Credence Clearwater Revival you may never forgive me for this
one ...

Taken from a Jaguar E-Type repair manual - gearbox section ...

"... lifting the rear of the cluster, you can remove the entire gear
cluster from the gear case ..."

Which I did - thus dropping an abundance of tiny needle rollers into the

Then I turned to the next page ... to find more instructions ...

"But first, install a hose clamp snugly against the final gear in order to
avoid disturbing the needle rollers ..."


Go to Hell ...

An old lady dies and goes to heaven.

She's chatting it up with St. Peter at the Pearly Gates when all of a
sudden she hears the most awful, blood curdling screams.

Don't worry about that," says St. Peter, "It's only someone having the
holes put into her shoulder blades for the wings."

The old lady looks a little uncomfortable but carries on with the

Ten minutes later, there are more blood curdling screams.

"Oh my God," says the old lady, "now what is happening?"

"Not to worry," says St. Peter, "She's just having her head drilled to fit
the halo."

"I can't do this," says the old lady, "I'm going to hell."

"You can't go there, "says St. Peter. "You'll be raped and sodomised."

"Maybe so, says the old lady, but I've already got the holes for that."


Asparagus ....

Through the eyes of a child. Children's Bible in a Nutshell.

In the beginning, which occurred near the start, there was nothing but God,
darkness, and some gas. The Bible says, 'The Lord thy
God is one, but I think He must be a lot older than that. Anyway, God said,
'Give me a light!' and someone did. Then God made the world.

He split the Adam and made Eve. Adam and Eve were naked, but they weren't
embarrassed because mirrors hadn't been invented yet. Adam and Eve
disobeyed God by eating one bad apple, so they were driven from the Garden
of Eden. Not sure what they were driven in though, because they didn't have

Adam and Eve had a son, Cain, who hated his brother as long as he was Abel.
Pretty soon all of the early people died off, except for
Methuselah, who lived to be like a million or something.

One of the next important people was Noah, who was a good guy, but one of
his kids was kind of a Ham. Noah built a large boat and put his family and
some animals on it. He asked some other people to join him, but they said
they would have to take a rain check.

After Noah came Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jacob was more famous than his
brother, Esau, because Esau sold Jacob his birthmark in exchange for some
pot roast. Jacob had a son named Joseph who wore a really loud sports

Another important Bible guy is Moses, whose real name was Charlton Heston.
Moses led the Israel Lights out of Egypt and away from the evil Pharaoh
after God sent ten plagues on Pharaoh's people. These plagues included
frogs, mice, lice, bowels, and no cable. God fed the Israel Lights every
day with manicotti. Then he gave them His Top Ten Commandments. These
include don't lie, cheat, smoke,
dance, or covet your neighbour's stuff. Oh, yeah, I just thought of one
more: Humour thy father and thy mother.

One of Moses' best helpers was Joshua who was the first Bible guy to use
spies. Joshua fought the battle of Geritol and the fence fell over on the

After Joshua came David. He got to be king by killing a giant with a
slingshot. He had a son named Solomon who had about 300 wives and 500
porcupines. My teacher says he was wise, but that doesn't sound very wise
to me.

After Solomon there were a bunch of major league prophets. One of these was
Jonah, who was swallowed by a big whale and then barfed upon the shore.
There were also some minor league prophets, but I guess we don't have to
worry about them.

After the Old Testament came the New Testament. Jesus is the star of the
New Testament. He was born in Bethlehem in a barn. (I wish
I had been born in a barn, too, because my mom is always saying to me,
'Close the door! Were you born in a barn?' It would be nice to say, 'As a
matter of fact, I was.')

During His life, Jesus had many arguments with sinners like the Pharisees
and the Republicans. Jesus also had twelve opossums. The worst one was
Judas Asparagus. Judas was so evil that they named a terrible vegetable
after him.

Jesus was a great man. He healed many leopards and even preached to some
Germans on the Mount. But the Republicans and all those guys put Jesus on
trial before Pontius the Pilot. Pilot didn't stick up for Jesus. He just
washed his hands instead.

Any way's, Jesus died for our sins, then came back to life again. He went
up to Heaven but will be back at the end of the Aluminium.
His return is foretold in the book of Revolution.


Montana Golfing Alert!

The Montana State Department of Fish and Wildlife is advising golfers to
take extra precautions and be on the alert for bears while playing on
Gallatin, Helena, and Lewis and Clark National Forests Golf Courses. They
advise golfers to wear noise-producing devices such as little bells on
their clothing to alert, but not to startle the bears unexpectedly.

They also advise you to carry pepper spray in the case of an encounter with
a bear. It is also a good idea to watch for signs of bear activity.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT Golfers should be able to recognize the
difference between black bear and grizzly bear droppings on the golf
course. Black bear droppings are smaller and contain berries and possibly
squirrel fur. Grizzly bear droppings have bells,
golf-gloves, and sunglasses in them and smell like pepper spray.


An old man goes into a drug store to buy some Viagra "Can I have 6 tablets,
cut in quarters?"

"I can cut them for you " said the chemist "But a quarter tablet will not
give you a full erection."

"I am 96 " said the old man . "I don't want an erection. I just want it
sticking out far enough so I don't p*ss on my slippers. "


Possibly the best come-back ever!

A divorced man meets his ex-wife's new husband at a party.

Later, after knocking back a few drinks, he goes over to the new guy and
asks him:
'So ... how do you like using second hand stuff?'

The new husband replies: 'It isn't that bad. Past the first 3 inches it's
all brand new.'


The Afghan

Mohammad the Afghan came to Sydney from the Middle East, and he was only
here a few months when he became very ill.

He went to doctor after doctor, but none of them could help him.

Finally, he went to an Afghan doctor who said,
"Take dees bocket, go into de odder room, sh*t in de bocket, p*ss on de
sh*t, and den put your head down over de bocket and breathe in de fumes
for ten minutes."

Mohammad took the bucket, went into the other room, sh*t in the bucket,
p*ssed on the sh*t, bent over and breathed in the fumes for ten minutes.

Coming back to the doctor he said, "It worked. I feel terrific! What was
wrong with me?"

The doctor said, "You were homesick ."


Anger Management

Husband: When I get mad at you, you never fight back. How do you control
your anger?

Wife: I clean the toilet bowl.

Husband: How does that help?

Wife: I use your toothbrush

The Seniors Breakfast Special

Send this to the Seniors in your life. I am sure they'll appreciate it!!
Even non-seniors will appreciate it! It pays to think outside the box!
We went to breakfast at a restaurant where the "seniors' special" was two
eggs, bacon, hash browns and toast for $1.99.
"Sounds good," my wife said. "But I don't want the eggs."
"Then I'll have to charge you two dollars and forty-nine cents because
you're ordering a la carte," the waitress warned her.
"You mean I'd have to pay for not taking the eggs?" my wife asked
"YES!!" stated the waitress.
"I'll take the special then." my wife said.
"How do you want your eggs?" the waitress asked.
"Raw and in the shell," my wife replied.
She took the two eggs home.
DON'T MESS WITH SENIORS!!! We've been around the block more than once.


Jogging problem

dead still.

'F..k me. Is that cocaine?' he asks the doctor.

'No' The doctor replies. 'It's Omo - guaranteed to stop colours from
