From Burnout @ BlueHaze.
Well Christmas is just around the corner now & the silly season is becoming
sillier this year as the world economy heads south, west or where ever it
goes when it gets the flu.
We at FH will get a huge crop Xmas/New Year stuff to edit and insert for
your gratification, edification & amusement. So I wish you all the best
for the season and a kinder, more generous, gracious New Year.
From Allnutts who's been a huge contributor over the years to FH:
A Christmas Story for people having a bad day:
When four of Santa's elves got sick, the trainee elves did not produce toys
as fast as the regular ones, and Santa began to feel the Pre-Christmas
Then Mrs Claus told Santa her Mother was coming to visit, which stressed
Santa even more.
When he went to harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were
about to give birth and two others had jumped the fence and were out,
Heaven knows where.
Then when he began to load the sleigh, one of the floorboards cracked, the
toy bag fell to the ground and all the toys were scattered.
Frustrated, Santa went in the house for a cup of apple cider and a shot of
rum. When he went to the cupboard, he discovered the elves had drank all
the cider and hidden the liquor. In his frustration, he accidentally
dropped the cider jug, and it broke into hundreds of little glass pieces
all over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and found the mice
had eaten all the straw off the end of the broom.
Just then the doorbell rang, and irritated Santa marched to the door,
yanked it open, and there stood a little angel with a great big Christmas
The angel said very cheerfully, 'Merry Christmas, Santa. Isn't this a
lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Where would you like me to
And so began the tradition of the little angel on top of the Christmas

The coach of Collingwood Football Club gets wind of a potential new young
recruit who lives in Afghanistan.
He and the Magpie Recruiting Manager thumb a lift with the RAAF to the war
torn country and track the young man down.
Risking life and limb dodging bombs, bullets, RPGs and grenades they
finally find the lad and convince him to come to Australia. The boy does a
full pre-season, plays all the practice matches and gets picked for the
senior's bench for the first game of the year. Ten minutes into the first
the centre half forward goes down with a severe knee injury. The coach
turns to the young lad and says ' This is it son, take the centre half
forward position and show us what you can do!'
The lad takes the field and plays the greatest debut game in AFL history.
He kicks 9 goals, takes the mark of the year and kicks the winning goal
after the siren from outside 50.
The Pies chair him off the ground and give him three cheers. Back in the
dressing room, the Coach tells the rest of the team what the young Taliban
boy has been through and that he is a model for all youth in Melbourne. He
then pulled the boy aside and tells him to ring his mother and tell her
what he did today.
The boy phones his mother and says 'Mum! Guess what I did today!'
'I don't care what you did today' said his mother 'I'll tell YOU what
happened here today while you were out wasting time! - Your Dad was
stabbed and robbed, the house was torched, our car blown up, your sister
attacked and your brother abducted!'
'By the beard of the prophet mother' said the boy ' I feel a bit
responsible for what happened in my absence'.
His mother replied before slamming the phone down 'So you should
be!.......If it wasn't for you, we would never have moved to Collingwood
in the first place!'

9 Things I Hate About Everyone
1. People who point at their wrist while asking for the time.... I know
where my watch is pal, where the hell is yours? Do I point at my crotch
when I ask where the toilet is?
2 People who are willing to get off their ass to search the entire room
for the T.V.. remote because they refuse to walk to the T.V. and change
the channel manually.
3 When people say 'Oh you just want to have your cake and eat it too'.
Damn right! What good is cake if you can't eat it?
4 When people say 'it's always the last place you look'. Of course it is.
Why the hell would you keep looking after you've found it? Do people do
this? Who and where are they? Gonna Kick their asses!
5 When people say while watching a film 'did you see that?'. No
Loser, I paid $12 to come to the cinema and stare at the damn floor.
6 People who ask 'Can I ask you a question?'.... Didn't really give me a
choice there, did ya sunshine?
7. When something is 'new and improved!'. Which is it? If it's new,
then there has never been anything before it. If it's an improvement,
then there must have been something before it, couldn't be new.
8 When people say 'life is short'. What the hell?? Life is the longest
damn thing anyone ever does!! What can you do that's longer?
9 When you are waiting for the bus and someone asks 'Has the bus come
yet?'. If the bus came would I be standing here, dumbass?

From: Nottingham Smithie
A Montana rancher got in his pickup and drove to a neighbouring ranch and
knocked at the door. A young boy, about 9, opened the door.
'Is yer Dad home?' the rancher asked
'No sir, he ain't,' the boy replied.
'He went into town.
'Well,' said the rancher, 'Is yer Mom here?'
'No, sir, she ain't here neither. She went into town with Dad.'
'How about your brother, Howard? Is he here?'
'He went with Mom and Dad.'
The rancher stood there for a few minutes, shifting from one foot to the
other and mumbling to himself.
'Is there anything I can do fer ya?' the boy asked politely 'I know where
all the tools are, if you want to borry one. Or maybe I could take a
message fer Dad.'
'Well,' said the rancher uncomfortably,
'I really wanted to talk to yer Dad. It's about your brother Howard getting
my daughter, Pearly Mae, pregnant.'
The boy considered for a moment. 'You would have to talk to Pa about that',
he finally conceded.
'If it helps you any, I know that Pa charges $500 for the bull and $50 for
the hog, but I really don't know how much he gets fer Howard.'
(Interesting - The last time I saw this one, it was about George W Bush;
Brown the British Prime Minister seems to be as popular - ED)
Gordon Brown was visiting a primary school and he visited one of the
classes. They were in the middle of a discussion related to words and
their meanings. The teacher asked Mr Brown if he would like to lead the
discussion on the word 'tragedy'.
Thus the illustrious leader asked the class for an example of a tragedy'.
A little boy stood up and offered: 'If my best friend, who lives on a farm,
is playing in the field & a tractor runs over him and kills him, that would
be a 'tragedy.'
No, said Gordon - that would be an accident.'
A little girl raised her hand: 'If a school bus carrying fifty children
drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy'
I'm afraid not, explained Gordon - that's what we would call great loss'
The room went silent. No other children volunteered.
Gordon searched the room. 'Isn't there anyone here who can give me an
example of a tragedy?'
Finally, at the back of the room, little Jeremy raised his hand...
In a quiet voice he said: 'If a plane carrying you and Mr Darling to
Afghanistan or Iraq was struck by a 'friendly fire' missile & blown to
smithereens, that would be a tragedy.'
'Fantastic!' exclaimed Gordon. 'That's right. And can you tell me why that
would be tragedy?'
'Well,' says little Johnny 'it has to be a tragedy, because it certainly
wouldn't be a great loss and it probably wouldn't be an accident either!'
If you didn't see this on the Tonight show, I hope you're sitting down when
you read it. This is probably the funniest date story ever, first date or
not!!! We have all had bad dates but this takes the cake.
Jay Leno went into the audience to find the most embarrassing first date
that a woman ever had. The winner described her worst first date
There was absolutely no question as to why her tale took the prize!
She said it was midwinter...Snowing and quite cold... And the guy had taken
her skiing in the mountains outside Salt Lake City, Utah.
It was a day trip (no overnight). They were strangers, after all, and had
never met before. The outing was fun but relatively uneventful until they
were headed home late that afternoon.
They were driving back down the mountain, when she gradually began to
realize that she should not have had that extra latte. They were about an
hour away from anywhere with a rest room and in the middle of nowhere! Her
companion suggested she try to hold it, which she did for a while.
Unfortunately, because of the heavy snow and slow going, there came a point
where she told him that he had better stop and let her go beside the road,
or it would be the front seat of his car.
They stopped and she quickly crawled out beside the car, yanked her pants
down and started. In the deep snow she didn't have good footing,
so she let her butt rest against the rear fender to steady herself.
Her companion stood on the side of the car watching for traffic and indeed
was a real gentleman and refrained from peeking. All she could think about
was the relief she felt despite the rather embarrassing nature of the
Upon finishing however, she soon became aware of another sensation. As she
bent to pull up her pants, the young lady discovered her buttocks were
firmly glued against the car's fender. Thoughts of tongues frozen to poles
immediately came to mind as she attempted to disengage her flesh from the
icy metal. It was quickly apparent that she had a brand new problem, due
to the extreme cold.
Horrified by her plight and yet aware of the humour of the moment, she
answered her date's concerns about' what is taking so long' with a reply
that indeed, she was 'freezing her butt off' and in need of some
assistance! He came around the car as she tried to cover herself with her
sweater and then, as she looked imploringly into his eyes, he burst out
laughing. She too, got the giggles and when they finally managed to
compose themselves, they assessed her dilemma. Obviously, as hysterical as
the situation was, they also were faced with a real problem.*
Both agreed it would take something hot to free her chilly cheeks from the
grip of the icy metal! Thinking about what had gotten her into the
predicament in the first place, both quickly realized that there was only
one way to get her free. So, as she looked the other way, her first time
date proceeded to unzip his pants and pee her butt off the fender.
As the audience screamed in laughter, she took the Tonight Show prize hands
down. Or perhaps that should be 'pants down. 'And you thought your first
date was embarrassing. Jay Leno's comment...'This gives a whole new
meaning to being p*ssed off.'
Oh and how did the first date turn out? He became her husband and was
sitting next to her on the Leno show.

I'm going to go rob a bank tomorrow.
I plan on dressing up in a clown wig and make up and only wearing a thong
and nipple tassels.
I'll carry a goat and a can of fluorescent paint in one arm and, while in
the bank, I'm going to f*ck the goat and throw the paint over the walls,
all the time ripping up pages of a phonebook and swearing my head off.
After getting the money, I'll take a sh*t on the floor and p*ss
everywhere. I then will escape in a van shaped like a giant pink c*ck.
Let's see Crimewatch stage a reconstruction of that.
Mothers always know just what to say:
A gay man, finally deciding he could no longer hide his s*xuality from his
parents, went over to their house and found his mother in the kitchen
cooking dinner. He sat down at the kitchen table, let out a big sigh, and
said, "Mum, I have something to tell you.......................I'm gay."
His mother made no reply or gave any response and the son was about to
repeat it to make sure she'd heard him, when she turned away from the pot
she was stirring and said calmly.
"You're gay... doesn't that mean you have oral s*x with other men?" The son
said nervously, "Uh, yeah, Mum, that's right." His mother went back to
stirring the pot, then suddenly whirled around and WHACKED him over the
head with her spoon and said..................
"Don't you EVER complain about the taste of my cooking again!!!"

A Japanese company (Toyota) and an American company (Ford Motors) decided
to have a canoe race on the Missouri River Both teams practiced long and
hard to reach their peak performance before the race.
On the big day, the Japanese won by a mile.
The Americans, very discouraged and depressed, decided to investigate the
reason for the crushing defeat. A management team made up of senior
management was formed to investigate and recommend appropriate action.
Their conclusion was the Japanese had 8 people rowing and 1 person
while the American team had 7 people steering and 2 people rowing.
Feeling a deeper study was in order; American management hired a consulting
company and paid them a large amount of money for a second opinion.
They advised, of course, that too many people were steering the boat, while
not enough people were rowing.
Not sure of how to utilize that information, but wanting to prevent another
loss to the Japanese, the rowing team's management structure was totally
reorganized to 4 steering supervisors, 2 area steering superintendents and
1 assistant superintendent steering manager.
They also implemented a new performance system that would give the 2 people
rowing the boat greater incentive to work harder. It was called the 'Rowing
Team Quality First Program,' with meetings, dinners and free pens for the
rowers. There was discussion of getting new paddles, canoes and other
equipment, extra vacation days for practices and bonuses. The pension
program was trimmed to 'equal the competition' and some of the resultant
savings were channelled into morale boosting programs and teamwork
The next year the Japanese won by two miles.
Humiliated, the American management laid-off one rower, halted development
of a new canoe, sold all the paddles, and cancelled all capital
investments for new equipment. The money saved was distributed to the
Senior Executives as bonuses.
The next year, try as he might, the lone designated rower was unable to
even finish the race (having no paddles,) so he was laid off for
unacceptable performance, all canoe equipment was sold and the next year's
racing team was out-sourced to
Sadly, the End.
Here's something else to think about: Ford has spent the last thirty years
moving all its factories out of the US, claiming they can't make money
paying American wages.
TOYOTA has spent the last thirty years building more than a dozen plants
inside the US. The last quarter's results:
TOYOTA makes 4 billion in profits while Ford racked up 9 billion in losses.
Ford folks are still scratching their heads, and collecting bonuses... and
now wants the Government to 'bail them out'.
