[ from Davo @ Bluehaze ]


Last week's FH editor, Digi Steve, mused ...

"For those of us who aren't rusted on, indoctrinated since birth, fanatic,
 alternative dismissing AFL addicts, this week has been a huge joke. How 
can any self respecting sports code have a TIED GRAND FINAL. Its supposed 
to be a GRAND FINAL, not a GRAND FINAL dress rehearsal, or a GRAND FINAL 
practice. No other code anywhere in the world comes back a week later to 
do it again! I am gob-smacked. Cant you all see the rest of Australia, and
 the world, laughing at you? Nuff said (nuff nuff nuff)."

This scribe says:

Get over it!  There's only been three drawn Grand Finals in 114 years. 
They are special and need to be replayed.

What other codes do is their affair.  In fair dinkum Aussie Rules football
it's a tradition to reassemble after a Grand Final draw and go through it
all again the following week.

It's great for the City of Melbourne, the TV networks, and the Australian

It was great for the Collingwood Football Club too!!    :)


First up one from you know who you are ...


A woman in a supermarket is following a grandfather and his badly behaved 3
year-old grandson.

It's obvious to her that he has his hands full with the child screaming for
sweets in the sweet aisle, biscuits in the biscuit aisle; and for fruit,
cereal and pop in the other aisles.

Meanwhile, Granddad is working his way around, saying in a controlled
"Easy, William, we won't be long . . . easy, boy."

Another outburst, and she hears the granddad calmly say, "It's okay,
William, just a couple more minutes and we'll be out of here. Hang in

At the checkout, the little terror is throwing items out of the cart, and
Granddad says again in a controlled voice, "William, William, relax buddy,
don't get upset. We'll be home in five minutes; stay cool, William."

Very impressed, the woman goes outside where the grandfather is loading his
groceries and the boy into the car.

She said to the elderly gentleman, "It's none of my business, but you were
amazing in there. I don't know how you did it. That whole time, you kept
your composure, and no matter how loud and disruptive he got, you just
calmly kept saying things would be okay. William is very lucky to have you
as his grandpa."

"Thanks," said the grandfather, "but I'm William . .. . the little
bastard's name is Kevin."


From Mad Mick from Markwick
[ who says: Ps.... why have we got the Rand over here right now?  No one is
safe!! ]

                       Survey by Thomas Cook and ABTA

This was sent from Thomas Cook Holidays - listing some of the guests'
complaints during the season.

"I think it should be explained in the brochure that the local store does
not sell proper biscuits like custard creams or ginger nuts."

"It's lazy of the local shopkeepers to close in the afternoons. I often
needed to buy things during 'siesta' time - this should be banned."

"On my holiday to Goa in India , I was disgusted to find that almost every
restaurant served curry. I don't like spicy food at all."

"We booked an excursion to a water park but no-one told us we had to bring
our swimming costumes and towels."

A tourist at a top African game lodge overlooking a waterhole, who spotted
a visibly aroused elephant, complained that the sight of this rampant
beast ruined his honeymoon by making him feel "inadequate".

A woman threatened to call police after claiming that she'd been locked in
by staff. When in fact, she had mistaken the "do not disturb" sign on the
back of the door as a warning to remain in the room.

"The beach was too sandy."

"We found the sand was not like the sand in the brochure. Your brochure
shows the sand as yellow but it was white."

A guest at a Novotel in Australia complained his soup was too thick and
strong. He was inadvertently slurping the gravy at the time.

"Topless sunbathing on the beach should be banned. The holiday was ruined
as my husband spent all day looking at other women."

"We bought 'Ray-Ban' sunglasses for five Euros (£3.50) from a street

only to find out they were fake."

"No-one told us there would be fish in the sea. The children were

"It took us nine hours to fly home from Jamaica to England. It only took

Americans three hours to get home."

"I compared the size of our one-bedroom apartment to our friends'
three-bedroom apartment and ours was significantly smaller."

"The brochure stated: 'No hairdressers at the accommodation'. We're trainee
hairdressers - will we be OK staying here?"

"There are too many Spanish people. The receptionist speaks Spanish. The
food is Spanish. Too many foreigners."

"We had to queue outside with no air conditioning."

"It is your duty as a tour operator to advise us of noisy or unruly guests
before we travel."

"I was bitten by a mosquito - no-one said they could bite."

"My fiancé and I booked a twin-bedded room but we were placed in a
double-bedded room. We now hold you responsible for the fact that I find
myself pregnant. This would not have happened if you had put us in the
room that we booked."


This came from New Forest Robin


This bloke is sitting in the bar in departures at a busy airport. A
beautiful woman walks in and sits down at the table next to him. He
decides that because she's wearing a uniform she's probably an off-duty
flight attendant. So he decides to have a go at picking her up by
identifying the airline she flies for, thereby impressing her greatly.

He leans across to her and says the Delta Airlines motto: "We love to fly
and it shows."

The woman looks at him blankly. He sits back and thinks up another line.

He leans forward again and delivers the Air France motto: "Winning the
hearts of the world."

Again she just stares at him with a slightly puzzled look on her face.

Undeterred, he tries again, this time saying the Malaysian Airlines motto:
"Going beyond expectations."

The woman looks at him sternly and says: "Just what the f*ck do you want?''

"Ah!' he says, sitting back with a smile on his face: "Ryanair."

then we are in a lot more trouble than I thought we were. Check out this

That is the message I got with this - clearly the writer does not
appreciate satire, whoever filmed this achieved his goal, he got people
talking about it.

                                  Telepathic Watch

An Aussie walks into a pub and takes a seat next to a very attractive
woman.. He gives her a quick glance then casually looks at his watch for a

The woman notices this and asks, 'Is your date running late?'

'No', he replies,'I just got this state-of the-art watch, and I was just
testing it..'

The intrigued woman says, 'a state-of-the-art watch? ''What's so special
about it?'

The Aussie explains, 'It uses alpha waves to talk to me telepathically.'

The lady says, 'What's it telling you now?'

Well, it says you're not wearing any panties.'

The woman giggles and replies 'Well it must be broken because I am wearing

The Aussie smiles, taps his watch and says, ' Bloody thing's an hour fast!'


                                   Job Applicants

A young man named Mike applied for an engineering position at a
Newfoundland firm based in St, Johns. A Mainlander applied for the same
job and both applicants, having the same qualifications, were asked to
take a test by the department manager. Upon completion of the test both
men had only missed one of the questions.

The manager went to Mike and said, "Thank you for your interest, but we've
decided to give the Mainlander the job."

"And why would you be doing that?" asked Mike. "We both get 9 questions
correct. This bein' the rock and me being a Newfie, I should get the jab!"

"We have made our decision not on the correct answers, but on the question
you missed."

"And just how would one incorrect answer be better than the other?"

"Simple," replied the manager. "On question # 5, the Mainlander put down,
'I don't know.' You put down 'Needer do I.'"

QA quickie from Seasoldier

                                     Listen Up

Professor Higgins at the University of Sydney was giving a lecture on
'Involuntary Muscle Contraction' to his first year medical students.

Realising this was not the most riveting subject, the professor decided to
lighten the mood slightly.

He pointed to a young woman in the front row and said, 'Do you know what
your ar*ehole is doing while you're having an orgasm?'

'Probably out fishing with his mates!' She replied,

It took 45 minutes to restore order in the classroom


These are from Stumpy Steve

         A Muslim dies and finds himself before the Pearly Gates..

He is very excited, as all his life he has longed to meet the Prophet
Mohammed. Having arrived at the Gates of Heaven, he meets a man with a

"Are you Mohammed?" he asks.

"No, my son. I am Peter. Mohammed is higher up." And he points to a ladder
that rises into the clouds.

Delighted that Mohammed should be higher than Peter, he climbs the ladder
in great strides, climbs through the clouds coming to a room where he
meets another bearded man.

He asks again, "Are you Mohammed?"

"No, I am Moses. Mohammed is higher still."

Exhausted, but with a heart full of joy he continues to climb the ladder
and, yet again, he discovers an even larger room where he meets another
man with a beard.

Full of hope, he asks again, "Are you Mohammed?"

"No, I am Jesus... You will find Mohammed higher up."

Mohammed higher than Jesus!

The poor man can hardly contain his delight and climbs and climbs, ever
higher. Once again he reaches a larger room where he meets a man with a
beard and repeats his question:

"Are you Mohammed?" he gasps as he is, by now, totally out of breath from
all his climbing.

"No my son..... I am God. But you look exhausted. Would you like a coffee?"

"Yes, please, my Lord."

God looks behind him, claps his hands and calls out:

"Hey Mohammed, two coffees !!!!"


                                  A quick question....

This should be an easy quiz for those who have even a modic*m of knowledge
about aircraft. The answer, however, may surprise you.

"What is the primary advantage of rotary-winged aircraft over fixed-winged

I got it wrong, too!


              Hard to believe but.... Interesting piece of history.

In 1572 the Arabs invented the condom, using a goat's lower intestine.

In 1573 the British somewhat refined the idea by taking the intestine out
of the goat first.


I bet Tony Curtis wishes he'd kept quiet when the Grim Reaper turned up and
asked who's Spartacus?


Finally from Whizzbang

                             POOF!  AND MORE POOF!

Three men - a Canadian farmer, Osama bin Laden and an Aussie are all
walking together one day..

They come across a lantern and a Genie pops out of it.

'I will give each of you one wish, which is three wishes in total', says

The Canadian says, 'I am a farmer and my son will also farm. I want the
land to be forever fertile in Canada '

POOF! With the blink of the Genie's eye, the land in Canada was forever
fertile for farming.

Osama was amazed, so he said, 'I want a wall around Afghanistan , Palestine
, Iraq and Iran so that no infidel, Americans, Australians or Canadians can
come into our precious land.'

POOF! Again, with the blink of the Genie's eye, there was a huge wall
around those countries.

The Aussie says, 'I am very curious.

Please tell me more about this wall'

The Genie explains, 'Well, it's about 5,000 feet high, 5oo feet thick and
completely surrounds the countries. Nothing can get in or out; it's
virtually impenetrable.'

The Aussie sits down on his Harley , cracks a beer, lights a cigarette,
smiles and says,

'Fill it with water.'

Canadian Postal truck
Who said the Canucks don't have a sense of humor............
Canadian postal workers decided to have a little fun.  They rigged a van so
that the people on the driver's side could only see the driver....who is a
dog.  The real driver, who is on the passenger side, cannot be seen. 
Partway down the street in a residential area the van stops and a man
(obviously in on the deal) approaches the driver (the dog) and starts
giving him directions, as though the dog is lost.  This is cleverly done.

A dog named Faith
This dog was born on Christmas  Eve in the year 2002. He was born   with   
  2    legs - He  of course could not walk when he was born.
Even his mother did not want him.
His first owner also did not think that he could survive and he was
thinking of 'putting him to sleep'.
But then, his present owner, Jude Stringfellow, met him and wanted   to
take care of him.   She became determined to teach and  train this little
dog to walk by  himself.
She   named him 'Faith'.
