   A man and his wife go to the doctors for a checkup, as he isn't feeling
well. The doctor asks to talk to the wife alone, and so the husband goes and
waits in the car.

  "I'm afraid it's bad news", the doctor says, "Your husband has a rare
heart condition that can be fatal, his only hope of survival rests in your
hands".
  "Go on", the wife says.
  "Well, you must have sex with your husband at least once a day, cook his
favourite meals, clean up after him, excuse his dirty habits, and generally
pamper him."

  On the way home in the car, the husband asks, "So, what did the doctor
say?"
  His wife replies, "I'm sorry Henry, you're going to die."

Hmm your tale sounds familier.... something like.....


Two hunters, Jack and Jim, were tramping through the Ozzie outback and Jack
decided he need to stop for a piss.
And behind the bush he flopped out his old fella out and away he leaked.
A nearby snake thought this was a fighting call and jumped up and bit poor
Jack on the penis.
Jim heard the agonising scream and came running "What happened? What can I
do?"
Jack explained the situation, and mentioned there was a phone box about half
a mile back on the highway.

Jim tore off to the phone box and called the closest doctor and asked what
could be done to help his friend.
The doctor explained that Jim would have to suck the venom out from where
the snakes fang penetrated.
Jim asked, "And what will happen if I don't?"
The doctor replied, "Your friend will die in about thirty minutes."

So, Jim with this information in mind, raced back to his ailing pal.
Jack asked "So what's gonna happen to me?"
To which Jim replied, "Your'e gonna be dead soon!"

Reminds me of the time me and a couple of mates were down at the pub
discussing how often we have sex,  when we saw this old fella in his

We asked him the same question and he replied with "infrequently"

And to this dat we're still trying to work out whether that was one word or

A BOLD NEW PROPOSAL FOR MATCHING HIGH-TECHNOLOGY PEOPLE AND PROFESSIONS

Over the years, the problem of finding the right person for the right
job has consumed thousands of worker-years of research and millions of
dollars of funding.  This is particularly true for high-technology
organizations where talent is scarce and expensive.  Recently, however,
years of detailed study of the finest minds in the field of
psychoindustrial interpersonnel optimization have resulted in the
development of a simple foolproof test to determine the best match
between personality and profession.  Now, at last, people can be
infallibly assigned to the jobs for which they are truly best suited.

CLASSIFICATION GUIDELINES

Mathematicians hunt elephants by going to Africa, throwing out
everything that is not an elephant, and catching one of whatever is
left.

Experienced mathematicians will attempt to prove the existence of at
least one unique elephant before proceeding to step 1 as a subordinate
exercise.  Professors of mathematics will prove the existence of at
least one unique elephant and then leave the detection and capture of an
actual elephant as an exercise for their graduate students.

Computer scientists hunt elephants by exercising Algorithm A:
     1.  Go to Africa.
     2.  Start at the Cape of Good Hope.
     3.  Work northward in an orderly manner, traversing the continent
         east and west.
     4.  During each traverse pass,
        (a) Catch each animal seen,
        (b) Compare each animal caught to a known elephant,
        © Stop when a match is detected.

Experienced computer programmers modify Algorithm A by placing a known
elephant in Cairo to ensure that the algorithm will terminate.

Assembly language programmers prefer to execute Algorithm A on their
hands and knees.

Engineers hunt elephants by going to Africa, catching gray animals at
random, and stopping when any one of them weighs within + or - 15% of
any previously observed elephant.

Economists don't hunt elephants, but they believe that if elephants are
paid enough, they will hunt themselves.

Statisticians hunt the first animal they see N times and call it an
elephant.

Consultants don't hunt elephants, and many have never hunted anything at
all, but they can be hired by the hour to advise those people who do.

Operations research consultants can also measure the correlation of hat
size and bullet color to the efficiency of elephant-hunting strategies,
if someone else will only identify the elephants.

Politicians don't hunt elephants but they will share the elephants you
catch with the people who voted for them.

Lawyers don't hunt elephants, but they do follow the herds around
arguing about who owns the droppings.

Software lawyers will claim that they own an entire herd based on the
look and feel of one dropping.

Vice presidents of engineering, research and development try hard to
hunt elephants, but their staffs are designed to prevent it.  When the
VP does get to hunt elephants, the staff will try to ensure that all
possible elephants are completely prehunted before the VP sees them.  If
the VP does see a non-prehunted elephant, the staff will (1) compliment
the VP's keen eyesight, and (2) enlarge itself to prevent any
recurrence.

Senior managers set broad elephant-hunting policy based on the
assumption that elephants are just like field mice, but with deeper
voices.

Quality assurance inspectors ignore the elephants and look for mistakes
the other hunters made when they were packing the jeep.

Salespeople don't hunt elephants but spend their time selling elephants
they haven't caught, for delivery two days before the season opens.

Software salespeople ship the first thing they catch and write up an
invoice for an elephant.

Hardware sales people catch rabbits, paint them gray, and sell them as
desktop elephants.

Subject: My Problem

I have always had this problem. I am oversexed and need to have sex at least
5-6 times a day. I have been to all sorts of experts and quacks to no avail.
In desperation I went to our local chemist shop yesterday to see if they
could help me. I was very nervous as there was a very good looking lady
behind the counter. Finally I plucked up enough courage to go to the counter
and talk to her. After the usual pleasantries i explained my problem to her,
and how desperate I was too find a solution. She became very thoughtful for
aminute or two and asked me to wait for a while and went out the back of the
shop. She returned shortly and said "well I've had a good talk to my sister,
who is my partner and about all we can offer you is $500 per week and a half
share in the profits.

These are from the Readers Digests... from about 10 years ago.. I think that
the statute of limitations have run out.. so I can post them.


When the redoubtable Nancy Astor, the first woman to sit as a member of
Briatin's House of Commons, was asked to pose for a close-up portrait, she
snorted like a hunter confronted with a fence:  "Take a close-up of a woman
past sixty?  You might as well use a picture of a relief map of Ireland!."

At a reception held in connection with the annual British inter-service
rugby championship, Sir Terence Lewin, then Britain's First Sea Lord, spoke
about the intense traditional rivalry between the army and navy.
He offered a tip on how to distinguish one team from the other on the field.
 'The army,' he explained, 'wear red shirts so that the blood doesn't show.
The navy wear blue,' he continued, 'for the same reason.'

that have become classics:


Dear Abby:  between you and me, the people who write to you are either
morons or they're just plain stupid.                     -Henry

Dear Henry:  Which are you?


Dear Abby:  Our son was married in January.  Five months later, his wife had
a four-and-a-half kilo baby girl.  They said the baby was premature.  Can a
baby this big be that early?                             - Wondering

Dear Wondering:  The baby was o time, the wedding was late.  Forget it.


Dear Abby:  Are birth-control pills tax deductible?      - Kay

Dear Kay:  Only if they don't work.


Dear Abby:  What's so special about a heterosexual relationship?

Sitting opposite me on a London bus was a cockney woman with a small boy.
We had been travelling at a snail's pace from one traffic jam to another.
An inspector got on the bus to examine our tickets and asked the woman, "Is
the boy under the age of twelve?"

The mother looked at the lad.  "Well," she said, "'e was when we got on."


One of the more interesting book-banning episodes involved a catchy number
titled 'Making it With Mademoiselle'.  A school board listed it to be
checked by school librarians for possible removal from library shelves.  The
volume is safe, however.  It is a pattern book.


A couple I know recently had their third child.  While his wife was still in
the hospital, the husband excitedly told his friends of the happy event.
One man, however, didn't quite understand the situation when the eager
father delcared "It was three kilos!"

Mark, a fellow fisherman, congratulated him with, "That's great!  What lake
was it from?"


While completing a master's degree in geology, I did some fieldwork
collecting fossils.  One morning, I drove up to an old farmhouse and was met
at the front door by a tall barefooted fellow.  I told him that I was from
the local university and wondered if it would be all right if I hunted for
fossils on his land.  He took some time to look me over, then replied, "All
right, I reckon - just don't shoot towards the house."


Don proudly drove his shiny new Ferrari to work and put it in a public
parking area.  When he returned to the car hours later, there was a note
under the windscreen wiper.  His initial apprehension turned to amusement
when he read:  "My car was parked next to your car all day.  If any issue
results, I would like the pick of the litter."

The pregnant wife of a fellow employee came into the office to lodge an
insurance application regarding her impending confinement.  Given the
necessary form, she sat down at an empty desk to fill it in.  After a few
minutes she began to chuckle.

"What's so funny?"  I asked.

"They want to know if my problem is accident-related."  She returned to the
form, and immediately burst into laughter.  "If so," she read aloud, "please
indicate responsible party."



At a department store, a difficult customer and a patient sales assistant
were having a hard time.  Nothing the assistant provided was exactly what
the woman wanted.  Finally, the finicky shopper said in annoyance, "Can't
you find a smarter assistant to serve me?"

"No," said the saleswoman.  "The smarter assistant saw you coming and
disappeared."



A teenage friend of mine happened to be at a service station near his home
one day when a delivery truck drove up with a large crate to be unloaded.
The truck driver, seeing no one else around to help, asked my friend, "Do
you think you could find another boy like yourself to help unload this
crate?"  The boy nodded and off he went.  Imagine the surprise of the
delivery man when he saw my friend return with his identical twin brother!

Fred Fairbanks died and went to the nether regions.  There the head devil
told him he could take his pick of three rooms in which to spend eternity.
The devil opened a door, and revealed thousands of men standing on their
heads on a brick floor.  Fairbanks told the devil that he didn't want to
spend eternity doing that.  So the devil opened another door, and there were
thousands of men standing on their headss on a wooden floor.  Although
Fairbanks thought that was better, he still wanted to see the third
possibility.  The devil opened a third door, and there were thousands of men
standing up to their ankles in a foul substance.  Each was drinking a cup of
coffee.

"That stuff they're standing in is horrible," Fairbanks said "but I prefer
this room to the other two."

So he walked into the room and the door slammed behind him.  Just then, an
assistant  devil yelled, "Okay, Coffee break is over.  All you blokes go
back to standing on your heads!"



Having made his usual welcome speech, the airliner captain forgot to switch
his microphone off and the passengers heard his say, "You know what I'd like

The hostess ran scarlet-faced down the aisle towards the cockpit, only to be
stopped by a sweet white-haired woman.  "You needn't run, dear,"  she said.
"He's going to have his beer first."

Here's some more from the famous Readers Digest:


At a dinner where the speakers were representatives for the three armed
services, the naval and army officers both jocularly referred to the air
force as the Cinderella of the services.
Then the air-force officer rose to make his speech.  "I know very little of
Cinderella," he began, "except that she had two ugly sisters."


A notorious bore to Oscar Wilde:  "I passed your house yesterday."
Wilde:  "Thank you very much."


On the morning after our harvest thanksgiving service, the village
school-teacher asked the primary class to name some of the things they had
seen in the church.
"Carrots," said one child.
"Parsnips," answered another.
"Cabbages," said a third.
"Good," replied their teacher approvingly.  "Now, can you give me one word
to cover all those things?"
After a long silence, one small boy raised his hand.  "Please, miss," he
piped, "Gravy."


A british newspaper sponsored a contest for the best answer to this dilemma:
Assume that in a balloon there are three famous men who have made invaluable
contributions to mankind.  The first one made an important medical
breakthrough, the second invented a youth serum and the third is a renowned
nuclear physicist.  The balloon runs into a storm and can be saved only if
one of the passengers is thrown overboard.  Which man should be sacrificed?
The paper received innumerable lengthy replies citing the merits of each
man.  But the judges awarded first prze to a 12-year-old whose answer was:
"The fattest one."


A few days after a visit to my optometrist to be fitted for new glasses, I

Overheard in a bus queue:  "I bought a waterbed to help save our marriage,
but we just drifted further apart."


Here's one that isn't a joke, but it's interesting nonetheless..

Love letters posted to an oak tree in Eutin, Germany, have made it the
world's strangest marriage bureau and have brought happy couples together
for nearly a century.
It all started in the 1880's.  A travelling businessman used to meet his
girlfriend under the old oak whever he was in the town.  Dates were
arranged by notes the lovers left in a knothole.  Eventually they married,
right under the same tree. The romantic tale got around.
The tree began receiving more letters from hopeful lovers, and became known
as the Bridegroom Oak. Now people looking for romance line up to wait for
the postman matchmaker. Deliveries are daily, and letters arrive from all
over the world.


Struggling with the English language, the foreigner was frustrated by the
reasoning behind the pronounciation of words like tough, bough, though.  He
gave up when he read this newspaper headline:  "Bazaar pronounced success."


Two martians landed on a corner right in front of a traffic light.  "I saw
her first."  One martian said.
"So what?" replied the other.  "I'm the one she winked at."


"Dad," said our 16-year-old son, "every time I answer the phone and someone
is calling you, they think I am you."
"You think that's bad?" countered our 13-year-old boy, whose voice hadn't
broken yet. "When I answer the phone, they think I'm Mum."


Stopping at my mother's house for a visit, I discovered that my older
brother and two of his children were also there.  Jim's boys, aged seven and
nine were soon running about making a general nuisance of themselves.
When their racket had reached a peak, Jim reprimanded them quite harshly.
Mother, however, quickly came to the boys' defence, telling Jim not to be
so hard on them.  "Mother!" snapped Jim. "They are *my* children, and I have
the perfect right to correct them."  Mother smiled and said softly, "I am
glad that we agree, Jim, I was correcting *mine*."

Just before he was to go on the air, a radio announcer grabbed a news story
about an African leader who had been assassinated.  Realising too late that
he couldn't pronounce the name of the deceased, the reporter sputtered, "His
name is being withheld pending notification of the next of kin."


As a career counsellor working from an office in our home, my wife finds it
difficult to handle the numerous phone calls from salesmen who are only
doing their job but refuse to believe that she is doing hers.  One
home-insulation salesman persisted in arguing for 'just one hour' of my
wife's time, despite her insistence that she was busy and that the house had
been insulated within the past year.
His sales pitch ended abruptly, however, when my wife agreed to give him an
appointment the next day - at her usual fee of $45 an hour.


When his business conference was over, my husband decided to do some
sightseeing before his flight home.  It was not until afterwards that he
discovered the small town offered no taxi or shuttle service to the airport.
Desperate, he called a parcel-delivery service and asked what it would cost
to send a package to the airport.  "Four dollars, sir," came the answer.
"Does it matter how large the package is?" my husband asked.
"No," replied the man, "as long as it fits in my station wagon."
And so, a short while later, the congenial deliveryman picked up his
'parcel' and delivered him to the airport in time for the flight.


On admission to the nursing home where I worked, each new resident was
interviewed by a social worker.  During one session, an alert,
twinkling-eyed, 96-year-old was asked, "Did you have a happy childhood?"
"So far, so good!" he replied.


After a very hectic day, my husband came up behind me, put his arms around
me and said, "Happiness is being married to you."
Not really paying attention, I muttered, "Okay, darling." Later, he asked
me if I remembered what he had said and was disappointed when I didn't.
"All right, then," I retorted, trying to get even, "What was the nicest
thing I ever said to you?"
"I do," he answered without hesitation.

As my car was out of action, I went shopping by bus.  However, halfway round
the supermarket I realised that in my condition - eight and a half months
pregnant - I wouldn't be able to carry the groceries home.
I approached a young man who seemed to be in charge and asked, "Do you do
deliveries?"
He took in my obvious condition and replied with a smile, "Only groceries,
Madam."


When the maintenance firm sent an elderly man to collect our broken-down
electric lawnmower, we carefully answered his searching technical questions.
I was immensely impressed with his professional approach - until I read the
label he tied to the mower before leaving: "Won't go!"


One day, a woman came into my photography studio with her 10-year-old son
and asked me to take passport-size photos of him.  When I had finished, she
had the boy change his jacket and asked me to take a second set of photos.
Intrigued, I asked her why she had had him change clothes.  "I have
identical twin boys," she replied, "and the other one hates having his
picture taken.  When they need identification photos, I bring in this son
and a second jacket, so anyone looking at the photos can tell them apart."


Many years ago, my father's neighbour, who had always farmed with horses,
decided to catch up with the times and buy a tractor.  His wife was
convinced that the purchase was unnecessary.  After they had argued about it
for several weeks, she exclained in frustration, "But you don't NEED a
tractor!"
"I know I don't need a tractor," he retorted. "I didn't need you, but I
*wanted* you!"
He got the tractor.


When our local doctor began attending church services, the minister was
delighted, and it wasn't long before they were helping each other in their
work - the minister referring people to the doctor and vice versa.
One referral from the doctor called at the church office with a note
prescribing the minister's last four sermons.  The minister was most
pleased, until he discovered the patient's problem was insomnia.

A friend's daughter was getting married, and the days just before the
wedding were hectic.  One night, I helped prepare a large dinner for
out-of-town guests.  After the dishes had been cleared away, the happy but
exhausted mother of the bridde joined everyone in the lounge-room.  As she
sat down, she softly said, "When this is all over, I plan to say in bed for
a week."
A big smile came over the face of her future son-in-law.  "So do I, Mrs B!
So do I!" he boomed.


A plummer who had parked his car in a loading zone placed a note reading
"Plummer Working Inside" under a windscreen wiper.  when he returned, he
found a parking ticket under the other wiper with a note: "Traffic Warden

Returning to her car the other day, my mother was perturbed to see a burly
policeman standing by it. Wondering which law she could have broken, she
approached him with a winning smile and said, "Oh, constable, I do hope I
haven't done anything wrong."
"Madam," the policeman replied, with an air of resignation, "we have to
stand somewhere."


One Saturday, I wanted to get some cash.  When I arrived at the bank,

A man finished a round of golf with a particularly abysmal score.   Moving
to the carpark, he found a small river running alongside the car park and
threw his golfclubs, bag and all, into the river.   They quickly vanished.
He stalked to his car, and stopped when he got to it, as though

Being a keen woodworker, I often putter about my workshop quite late at
night when the rest of the family has gone to bed.  Once, about midnight, a
car parked next to our house with its stereo blaring away at full volume.

Afraid that the racket would wake the family, I wandered out to ask the
driver to turn it down.  I was about five metres from the car when the
engine burst into life and the vehicle shot off with a squeal of tyres.  I
caught a glimpse of wide eyes staring at me in fear.  Then I realised I was
clutching an impressive-looking mallet and a lethal, long-bladed chisel.



My husband was the commanding officer of a coastguard cutter.  One time, at
sea, high winds caused waves to rock the ship so much that almost everyone
got seasick.  Nobody could eat anything and keep it down.

One of the young officers, trying valiantly to muster up courage among the
men, was overheard saying, "Look! It's almost over.  The moon's coming up."
To which one very sick seaman replied, "Oh, no! Not *that* too."



A few years ago, I ran a business from my home, casting animal figurines in
plaster.  One step required dipping each figure into a milky solution to
seal the plaster.

I was in the middle of this process late one day when a salesman appeared at
my front door.  After I had spent what seemed an eternity listening to him
prattle on, my timer went off at the back of the house.  Jumping at the
chance to get rid of the salesman, I said "You'll have to excuse me, I've
got to run and milk the buffalo!"

"Well," he said as he left in a huff, "a simple 'no' would have sufficed."

In the 1950s, seven major newspapers vied for the New York market.
Sometimes, the competition would send an editor scurrying for a scoop.

One day, a society woman had been hospitalised after being involved in a
scandal.  Reporters, including a female journalist from the Daily
Mirror, were stationed nearby awaiting news on the woman's condition.  A
telephone call for the journalist interrupted their poker game.  Her
editor had a scheme:  she was to disguise herself as a nurse, and get
into the patient's heavily guarded room for an exclusive interview. She
agreed to this and returned to the card game.

Two hours later, her editor called back.  Yes, the journalist told him,
she had found a uniform and yes, she had made it all the way into the
very room.  Stammering with excitement, the editor pressed her:  "And
the interview?  Did you get the interview?"

"No," she replied regretfully.  "The doctor from the Daily News threw me
out."


--------------------------------------

After a late-night movie, a friend and her boyfriend were walking back
to his car, parked in an alley.  He suggested a race to the car and gave
her a sporting start.  When she reached the car and turned around, she
saw him struggling in the arms of a policeman who called out, "It's all
right - you can stop running.  I've got him!"

Encountering the item "Choice of Vegetables" on the menu of a hotel
dining-room, my husband and I asked the waitress what the vegetables
were.
"Asparagus," she replied.
"But what is the choice?"
"do you want it or don't ya?"

At the height of the Australia-wide controversy over the proposed
damming of Tasmania's Franklin River, I bought two of the green
triangular "No Dams" bumper stickers that became so familiar throughout
Australia.  I put one on my car and the other, as a joke, on my father's
vehicle.

Strongly pro-dam, he burned the tables by putting the sticker on my car
with the letters carefully re-arranged to read "Mad Son".

One day at a peublo in New Mexico, a tour bus pulled up and out
clambered several kilt-clad Scotsmen.
There they stood, with mouths open, gaping at a group of residents

started circling the other, like dogs smelling out the situation.

The men in kilts were the first to give up and went off with their
pleats, sporrans and cameras swinging.  The Indians stood stood and
stared.  "It doesn't seem fair to charge them to look around, does it?"
remarked one.
"The hell with it," said a second Indian.  "I'm going to get my

One young man who had played many practical jokes on his newly-wed
friends was about to be married himself, and he was very nervous.  Would
his friends reciprocate?

Despite all his fears, everything went well.  No one offered reasons
"why this couple should not be joined together"; no water pistol
appeared at the receiving line; no obscene telegrams were read; no cake
was thrown on the dance floor.  So, after an uneventful exit, the couple
relaxed.  They arrived at their hotel, and retired for the night.

The next morning, the groom called room service.  "This is Mr. Smith in
Number Ten.  I'd like to order breakfast for two."

We always take two cars when we go on holiday because our family is so
large.  I drive the lead vehicle, and my wife follows in the second car.
To keep me posted on the state of things in her car, she has devised a
few signals I can observe in my rear-vision mirror.

When she turns on her parking lights, it means that she is sleepy and
needs a cup of coffee.  When she turns on the windscreen wipers, it
means the kids are getting restless and need to stretch their legs.
Blinking hazard lights tell me that a fight is in progress.

But my favourite signal is the one she uses to inform me that the kids
need to use a rest room.  She simply turns on the windscreen squirters.

During an exhausting day at an amusement park with our two children,
we'd ridden everything at least twice.  We had also won a stuffed pink
panther, which resulted in a lot of arguing between the kids over who

dozens of weary families.

But a puppet show had just begun, and the kids had to see 'just this one
last thing'.  Too tired to argue at this point, we agreed and sat down.
Suddenly, my younger daughter, wanting to clap for the puppets, rushed
over and shoved the pink panther into my hands - and into my burning
cigarette.  A moment later, I realised the stuffed animal was
smouldering.  Panicking, I began to beat it on the ground.

A tearful young woman complained to her doctor that her marriage was
going down the drain.  "When we were newly-weds," she cried, "it was
pure madness.  He would grab me round the waist, spin me round the room,
knock over the furniture, rip the table-cloth off the dining-room table
with all the dishes on it, then kiss me passionately on top of the bare
table.  Now there's nothing."

The doctor was sympathetic.  "Take these pills," he said, "and put them
in your husband's morning coffee.  They'll solve all your problems.  And
let me know how things go."

A week later, the doctor discovered to his horror that he had given his
patient triple-strength pills.  but he was pleasantly surprised when she
walked in beaming and told him, "Everything's just wonderful!  The
hugging, the spinning, the chairs flying, the tablecloth, the dishes on
the floor, the kissing - It's been glorious!"

The doctor was pleased, but he felt guilty about over-prescribing.  He
confessed what he had done, then asked, "Can I at least pay for the
dishes?"

"By no means," she said.  "Anyway, I don't think they'll let us in that
restaurant again."

Now it came to pass that the Prophet Ryan became an extreme nuisance to the
King, and so he did throw him into the Lion's Den, where there was much
weeping and gnashing of teeth.

On the first day after his confinement, for on the day he was confined the
second day did follow, and the previous being the day he was confined, the
King went unto the Prophet Ryan where he abode in the lion's den and he did
ask of him,  "How go it with thee, O Prophet?"

The Prophet lit up with a vision and said unto the King "Lo, O King, it
locks."

"What locks?" cried the King, for he was tested by the Prophet's
proclamation.

"Bollocks!" roared the Prophet Ryan, and the King was shamed with the earthy
wit and bought the round of drinks.

Now on the second day after the Prophet's confinement, verily, being the day
after which the King did first visit which was the day following the day of
confinement, the King again went unto the Prophet where he abode in the
lion's den and he did ask of him, "How go it with thee, O Prophet?"

The Prophet was seized with wisdom and said unto the King, "Lo, O King, it
tickles."

The King, struck dumb by the wisdom inherent in the statement, cried "O
Prophet, what tickles?"

"Testicles!" roared the Prophet Ryan, and again the King was shamed with the
earthy wit, and drinks were again on the King.

Now the King did become increasingly vengeful, and as doth the proverb say
"A vengeful man becomes extremely pissed", and so he did.  And with the most
animal of cunning and deviousness he did compose a plan so sly that with an
orange stripe and a hound chasing it and rending its testicles with canine
fangs, indeed it would be called a fox.

So on the third day, which was the day following the day which was in turn
following the first day after the Prophet's confinement, and the Prophet's
confinement being three days before the third day, the King did approach the
Prophet Ryan, and seeking to ensnare him in the sly plan, he asked the
Prophet "How go it with thee in yonder hole, O Prophet?"

But the Prophet, seeing the sly trap the King deviseth, was seized with most
oracular insight, and did steal the King's punchline, roaring "Asshole!" at
the top of his lungs, and yet again, drinks were on the King.

Now on the fourth day, which was the day before the fifth day following the
Prophet's confinement, which in turn was forty-eight days before the Feast
Day of Saint Eustachius of the Useless Miracle, the King again approached
the Prophet Ryan.

And the Prophet, becoming extremely vexed by this visitations, did take upon
a portion of lion's dung of the bigness of a cubit and a span, and did hurl
it at the King.

Indeed, the dung did hit the King in the face, and he cried "Shit!", and the
entire court of nobles bent their knees and STRAINED, for they dared do no
other.

Here endeth the lost biblical scroll of The Prophet In the Lion's Den.

Admittedly not my best piece of gospel, but still important.  Comments
appreciated to either my Prophetly incarnation or my mortal half, Ryan

Back when Catholics weren't allowed to eat meat on Fridays, a Protestant
moved into a mostly Catholic neighbourhood.  Every Friday, he'd barbecue
a thick, juicy steak, and the aroma would drift over a wide area.
Finally, his neighbours could stand it no more.  They marched together
to his home and persuaded him to convert to Catholicism.  A month later,
the Protestant was at church, ready to be baptised.  The priest
sprinkled holy water on him and said, "You were born a Protestant, you
were raised a Protestant, and now you're a Catholic."

The following Friday, the new convert began barbecueing a thick, juicy
steak as usual.  His neighbours, smeling the aroma, were appalled and
stormed over to say this wasn't allowed.  As they got to his yard, they
saw him gleefully sprinkling water on his steak, saying, "You were born
a steer, you were raised a steer, and now you're a fish."

of pleasure their old-fashioned mother would derive from conversing with
the extraordinary parrot; and think of the admiration the bird would elicit
among Mamma's friends in the sisterhood!
   So the soons bought a beautiful gilded cage, and placed the parrot
inside, and had the singular birthday gift delivered to Mamma.
   Then, in great excitement, they telephoned: `Mamma, mamma, how did you

   `Delicious!' said Mamma.

   Good afternoon all,

   Well, I'd like to see the prenuptual agreement on this one, {So I think
might a lot of people!}.  Microsoft billionare Bill Gates is getting
married (to a marketing manager at Microsoft, Melinda French), and rumor
has it that the wedding may proceed thus:
   "The words `for richer for poorer' will be replaced with `for richer, or
for even richer'.
   The reception will be held at Microsoft so that people can continue
working.
   After the wedding, the bride will turn and laugh at all the women in the
world.
   Melinda will find out on the wedding night (to her great disappointment)
where Bill got the name `Microsoft'.
   After three years of marriage, Bill will announce an upgrade to Wife 2.0

A motorist pulled over on a side street to take a nap.  As he settled down
in the seat and closed his eyes, a jogger rapped on his window to ask the
time.  Bleary-eyed, he found his watch and proclaimed it to be 8.am.

Sleeping at last, he was soon awakened by another jogger rapping on the
window. "Excuse me, do you have the time?" he asked.  Looking at his watch
again, he told the man it was 8.30.

At this rate he wasn't getting much sleep, so he wrote a short note and
stuck it on the window for all to see.  It stated: "I don't have the time."

Again the man settled down for his sorely needed nap.  A few minutes later
another jogger came along and began rapping on the window.  "Hey, mate," he
said, "it's a quarter to nine."

While visiting Mexico City, a tourist walked into a pub and sat down.

"What'll it be?" asked the barman.

"Anything that will make me feel good," answered the man.

With that, the barman proceeded to pour the customer a shot of tequila.  The
tourist took the glass and downed the fiery liquid with little effort.  The
barman, looking on in amazement, began to pour another drink.  As he did, he
asked, "Do you feel anything?"

"No.  Don't feel a thing," replied the tourist as he guzzled his second
tequila with incredible ease.

"Do you feel anything now?" asked the barman.

"No. Can't feel a thing," the man said, pushing his glass towards the barman
for a refill.

In frustration, the barman began to pour a third shot when the man
continued, "No. Can't feel my hands, Can't feel my lips.  Can't feel..."

Our spaniel is a very boisterous and highly-strung animal.  One day, I
returned home from a shopping trip to find the finely shredded remnants
of an advertising brochure on the hall floor. With a great deal of
effort, I pieced them together to find that it was from a local firm
that sold burglar alarms.  It read:  "Just think! A burglar could enter
your home as easily as this did."


----------------------------------------------

One day, I saw an old woman coming out of the local supermarket with
two large bags of groceries.  I offered to help and carried them to her
house about 10 minutes away.  When we got to her front gate, she
extended her clenched hand and said, "Here, have a drink on me."  She
was so insistent that I had to accept the gift.

She put something into my hand and walked into her house.  Later, when I
looked in my hand, I found I had been given a teabag.

While working in Burma, I wanted to book a flight from Akyab, near the
Bangladesh border, to Rangoon.  I was not getting much satisfaction from
the airline office, since flights to and from this remote area tend to
be spasmodic.  Eventually, I lost patience, banged the desk top and
shouted, "Is there, or is there not, a flight to Rangoon at three-twenty
p.m.?"

The tiny Burmese clerk drew himself up to his full height and replied
with crushing dignity. "Oh yes, sir, certainly there is a flight.  Only
we do not know yet whether or not there will be an aeroplane on it."

------------------------------------------------

I wave my hands around when I talk - especially when I'm excited - and
so does my secretary.  Driving back from a business lunch, we had
stopped at a traffic light and were animatedly discussing a point raised
by the guest speaker.

Suddenly, I became aware of being watched.  I turned my head and found a
motorcycle policeman peering intently through my window.  Winding it
down, I asked, "Have I done anything wrong, constable?"

"Not yet," he smiled. "I'm just waiting to see who throws the first
punch."

Shortly after being promoted, our over-zealous young production manager
instructed that in future all communication with him must be in writing.
The following morning, he met an elderly member of staff who silently
procuced from his waistcoat pocket a small card and presented it to him.
On it, in copperplate handwriting, were two words:  "Good Morning."

The new air-force conscript was assigned a routine maintenance job by a

only an hour, after nearly four hours there was still no sign of the new
man, and the flight-sergeant went to investigate.

To his amazement, he found that the man had removed the entire engine
from the aircraft, no mean feat in itself.

"What the devil do you think you're doing?" he spluttered.

"Following instructions, sir," replied the aircraftman, handing over the
card, which read: REMOVE ENGINE.

Turning the card over, the flight-sergeant revealed the words:  OIL

In the begining was THE PLAN
And then came The Assumptions
And The Plan was without substance.
And The Assumtions were without form.

And darkness was upon the face of the Secretaries.
And they spoke among themselves saying.
"It is a crock of shit, and it stinks."

And the secretaries went unto their Supervisors and said,
"It is a pail of dung, and none may abide the odour thereof."

And the Supervisors when unto their Managers saying,
"It is a container of excrement, and it is very strong such that
none may abide by it."

And the Managers went unto their Directors saying,
"It is a vessel of fertiliser, and none may abide its strength."

And the Directors spoke among themselves saying to one another,
"It contains that which aids plant growth, and it is very powerfull."

And the Vice Presidents went unto the President saying unto him,
"This new plan will actively promote growth and vigour of the
company, with powerfull effects."

And the President looked upon The Plan, and saw that it was good.

And The Plan became Policy.
And that is how Shit Happens.

The country was in a terrible state,
Parliament sat for the budget debate,
It was quite a few moments before Ruth Richardson spoke,
Then she said "SEX WILL BE TAXED, FIVE BUCKS A POKE"

"Whether you're short, long, skinny or thick,
the tax will be paid on the use of your prick"
Then Graeme Lee said " Ruth, look here,
Will the tax apply to the boys who are queer?

Lockwood Smith rose and looked rather glum,
'Will I be exempt because I like bum?"
Ruth replied and sounded quite airy,
"You'll pay double, you dirty old fairy".

Up rose w*nst*n p*t*rs, to tremendous applause,
He grabbed Jenny Shipley and ripped off her drawers
He straddled across her and stuffed her at will
Then shouted at Ruth, "Put that in your bill!

Jim Bolger then shouted "I think I'll resign!
I haven't had sex for a very long time.
I dream every night of a big juicy crotch,
But five buck a go, thats too bloody much!"

The debate carried on, Oh what a sight!
John Banks was wanking the whole of the night.
M.P's were comming, the speaker came last,
And in the excitement, the dumb bill got passed!

So now in the bedrooms of New Zealand at night,
There's many a fanny thats closed up tight.
They're taxing our books, there're taxing our smokes
And now the bastards are taxing our pokes.
If five bucks a grind is what we must pay
It's now with ourselves that we must play,
To quench our frustrations we must have a wank,
And for the state of the country, we have Ruth to thank!

Subject: Is there a Santa?? _Was_ There ever?

The following was sent by email to me from some students in America. I
don't know if they did this themsleves, or if they got it from some one
else. But it amuses me nonetheless.





IS THERE A SANTA CLAUS?

As a result of an overwhelming lack of requests, and with research help
from that renown scientific journal SPY magazine (January, 1990) - I am
pleased to present the annual scientific inquiry into Santa Claus.

1)  No known species of reindeer can fly.  BUT there are 300,000 species of
living organisms yet to be classified, and while most of these are insects
and germs, this does not COMPLETELY rule out flying reindeer which only
Santa has ever seen.

2)  There are 2 billion children (persons under 18) in the world. BUT since
Santa doesn't (appear) to handle the Muslim, Hindu, Jewish and Buddhist
cihldren, that reduces the workload to to 15% of the total - 378 million
according to Population Reference Bureau.  At an average (census) rate of 3
5 children per household, that's 91.8 million homes.  One presumes there's
at least one good child in each.

3)  Santa has 31 hours of Christmas to work with, thanks to the different
time zones and the rotation of the earth, assuming he travels east to west
(which seemes logical).  This works out to 822.6 visits per second. This is
to say that for each Christian household with good children, Santa has
1/1000th of a second to park, hop out of the sleigh, jump down the chimney,
fill the stockings, distribute the remaining presents under the tree, eat
whatever snacks have been left, get back up the chimney, get back into the
sleigh and move on to the next house.  Assuming that each of these 91.8
million stops are evenly distributed around the earth (which, of course, we
know to be false but for the purposes of our calculations we will accept),
we are now talking about .78 miles per household, a total trip of 75-1/2
million miles, not counting stops to do what most of us must do at least
once every 31 hours, plus feeding and etc.

This means that Santa's sleigh is moving at 650 miles per second, 3,000
times the speed of sound.  For purposes of comparison, the fastest man-
made vehicle on earth, the Ulysses space probe, moves at a poky 27.4 miles
per second - a conventional reindeer can run, tops, 15 miles per hour.

4)  The payload on the sleigh adds another interesting element.  Assuming
that each child gets nothing more than a medium-sized lego set (2 pounds),
the sleigh is carrying 321,300 tons, not counting Santa, who is invariably
described as overweight.  On land, conventional reindeer can pull no more
than 300 pounds.  Even granting that "flying reindeer" (see point #1) could
pull TEN TIMES the normal anount, we cannot do the job with eight, or even
nine.  We need 214,200 reindeer.  This increases the payload - not even
counting the weight of the sleigh - to 353,430 tons.

Again, for comparison - this is four times the weight of the Queen
Elizabeth.

5)  353,000 tons travelling at 650 miles per second creates enourmous air
resistance - this will heat the reindeer up in the same fashion as
spacecrafts re-entering the earth's atmosphere.  The lead pair of reindeer
will absorb 14.3 QUINTILLION joules of energy.  Per second.  Each.  In
short, they will burst into flame almost instantaneously, exposing the
reindeer behind them, and create deafening sonic booms in their wake. The
entire reindeer team will be vaporized within 4.26 thousandths of a second.

Santa, meanwhile, will be subjected to centrifugal forces 17,500.06 times
greater than gravity.  A 250-pound Santa (which seems ludicrously slim)
would be pinned to the back of his sleigh by 4,315,015 pounds of force.

In conclusion - If Santa ever DID deliver presents on Christmas Eve, he's
probably dead by now.

and the partridge in a pear tree have me up to my ass in bird shit.

On top of all this, Mrs. Claus is going through menopause, seven of my
reindeer are in heat, Rudolph went "free agent" and joined the Easter Bunny
for $1.5 million and incentive bonuses, the elves have joined the gay
liberation and those dumb assed eskimos have scheduled Christmas for 5
February 1991.  And I want to retire.

        Insurance Claimes


Many have experienced the confusion of traffic accidents and have had  to
summerize correctly what happened in a few words or  less on insurance or
accident forms.   The following quotes were taken  >From those forms and
were eventually published in the Toronto Sun
Paper.

 1) Coming home, I drove into the wrong house and collided with a
    tree I don't have.
 2) The other car collided with mine without giving warning of
    it's intentions.
 3) I though my window was down, but I found out it was up when I
    put my hand through it.
 4) I collided with a stationary truck coming the other way.
 5) A truck backed through my windshield into my wife's face.
 6) A pedestrian hit me and went under my car.
 7) The guy was all over the road, I had to swerve a number of
    times before I hit him.
 8) I pulled away from the side of the road, glanced at my
    mother-in-law and headed over the embankment.
 9) In my attempt to kill a fly, I drove into a telephone pole.
10) I had been shopping for plants all day and was on my way
    home, as I reached an intersection, a hedge sprang up,
    obscuring my vision.
11) I had been driving for 40 years when I fell asleep at the
    wheel and had an accident.
12) I was on my way to the doctors with rear end trouble, when my
    universal joints gave way, causing me to have an accident.
13) As I approched the intersection, a stop sign suddenly
    appeared to stop in time to avoid the accient.
14) To avoid hitting the bumper of the car in front, I struck the
    pedestrian.
15) My car was legally parked as it backed into the other
    vehicle.
16) An Invisible car came out of nowhere, struck my car and
    vanished.
17) I told the police that I was not injured, but on removing my
    hat, I found that I had a skull fracture.
18) I was sure the old fellow would not make it to the other side
    of the street when I struck him.
19) The pedestrian had no idea which way to go, so I ran over
    him.
20) I saw the slow moving, sad faced gentleman as he bounced off
    the hood of my car.
21) I was thrown from my car as it left the road, I was later
    found in a ditch by some stray cows.
22) The telephone pole was approching fast, I attempted to swerve
    out of it's way, when it struck the front of my car.

Clem decided it was time to purchase a new saw to help clear his heavily
timbered property.  A salesman showed him the latest chainsaw model and
assured him that he could easily cut three or four cords of wood per day
with it.

But the first day Clem barely cut one cord of wood.  The second morning he
arose an hour earlier and managed to cut a little over one cord.  The third
day he got up even earlier but managed to achieve only a total of one and a
half cords.

Clem returned the saw to the store the next day and explained the situation.

'Well,' said the salesman, 'lets see what's the matter,'  He then pulled the
cable and the chainsaw sprang into action.  Leaping back, Clem exclaimed,
'what the heck is that noise?'

With 20 years to serve in prison, a man killed time by training an ant in
his cell.  After some years the ant spoke two languages, did gymnastics and
whistled.  just as it was learning to sing, the man was freed.  He took the
precious ant with him in his pocket, hoping to make a lot of money with it.

He went straight to a hotel and, after receiving his drink, found he could
not resist the temptation to show off the ant's talents.  placing it on the
bar, he called to the waiter, 'look at this ant!'

The waiter immediately crushed the ant with his fist and apologised, "please
forgive us, sir."

When the creator was making the world, he told Man he was giving him 20
years of normal sex life.  Man was very unhapy about this and asked for more
-  but was refused.

The monkey was then offered 20 years.  "I don't need twenty," protested the
monkey.  "Ten will do."

"May i have the extra ten years?" pleaded man, and this time the Creator
graciously agreed.

Then he offered the noble lion 20 years.  The lion didn't want more than ten
either, so Man asked for the surplus and was granted ten more years.

The donkey was offered 20 years, but said ten was ample.  Man again begged
for the spare ten years, and got them.  This perhaps explains why man has 20
years of normal sex life, ten years of monkeying around, ten years lion
about it and ten years of making an ass of himself.

When my wife and I were visiting Brighton, England, as tourists, we got a
parking ticket.  I posted the fine with a note, saying that the meter maid
was only doing her duty in booking us, that we enjoyed all the people we
met, and that we had a marvellous time.  What follows is the Brighton police
station's reply:

Dear Mr. Nelson,
Your letter has been passed to me as the police commander for this area due
to its being looked on as unusual.  I say this because the normal letter in
these circumstances contains invective that would make a navy stoker blush.

Your civilised approach only shows what a good job we did with our colonies
- before being thrown out of nearly all of them.

I am very pleased you and your good lady had an enjoyable holiday here, and
I am sorry it culminated in a parking fine - but we need all the money we
can get.

Should you return to Brighton again, please visit the police station and
allow me to offer you the hospitality of a cup of tea - or coffee if you
originate from Boston.

settled the bill, the family all clustered round the cashier's desk.

He had warned his sons not to help themselves too greedily to the free

The staff stood motionless when a passenger in her seventies appeared at the

along slowly and finally made it to the wharf safely, to everyone's relief.

As she stepped down, she turned, looked back at the top of the plank and

Before film companies were careful about Swahili translations - assuming
noone in the Western world would understand - a director needed an African
messenger who was to gasp out a sentence to the big chief, collapsing as he
delivered his message, since he had run for days with this vital news.  A
local Englishman who spoke Swahili was asked to write an urgent-sounding
sentence in the language.  He did, tongue in cheek.  An American actor
played the part beautifully.

All went well until the film was shown in Nairobi (where everyone spoke
Swahili, of course).  The drama of the moment was reduced to high comedy.
What the messenger actually said as he threw himself, exhausted, before the
chief was, "I do not think I am getting paid enough money for this part."

Once apon a time, two astronauts scheduled for a lunar mission were
simulating some procedures on a Navajo Indian reservation in Arizona.  The
terrain there was similar to the moon's surface, and the duo needed the
practice.

A Navajo medicine man spotted the space-suited pair and asked the chief who
those funny-looking people were.  Told they were going to the moon, the
medicine man said that, according to legend, some Navajos had once gone to
the moon.  Perhaps the spacemen would deliver a message to them.

The astronauts readily agreed, and since the Navajo language is not a
written one, a tape recorder was used.  Curious, the astronauts asked the
medicine man what the nature of his message was.  Translated, it said:
"Beware of these two.  They'll probably try to make a treaty with you."

Suddenly, the door was opened by a large, bearded man with glasses.

I thought oral contraception was when you talked your way out of it...

----------

After hearing me talk about my job, my young son looked forward to spending
the day with me at the office.  Although usually shy, he seemed eager to
meet each co-worker I introduced.  On the way home, however, he appeared
sullen.  I couldn't see the reason for his disappointment until he
complained, "I never got to see the clowns you said you worked with."

----------

My niece took her car, which has numerous dents and scratches, to a garage
mechanic and asked him why it was so difficult to start that morning.

He walked round the car, taking in its dilapidated condition, then said,
'It was probably afraid to go out.'

Jury foreman to judge:  'We find the defendant guilty and his lawyer

Driving on a highway called 'The Strip' by local teenagers, I stopped at the
traffic lights.  As I did, I heard a car next to mine rev its engine.  Fed
up with young drivers who race from the lights, often cutting this grandma
off, I looked straight ahead, determined to show the hot rodder a thing or
two.

When the lights changed, I pushed the accelerator to the floor, leaving the
other car behind until the next lights.  When it pulled alongside me again,
I glanced over, feeling smug - to stare straight into the face of a
policeman in his patrol car, shaking his head.

----------

My toddler had discovered the kitchen bin, and I decided to look in it when
I realized that one of my shoes was missing.  Unfortunately, my husband had
already taken the garbage to the big rubbish container our block of units
used.

I dashed outside, climbed through the container's side entrance and began
searching.  Just then a removalist van arrived.  Everyone was coming out to
greet the new neighbours as I emerged from the container, triumphantly
clutching the garbage bag with the lost shoe.

It was too much for my husband to resist. "Darling," he called. "Did you
find anything for dinner?"

My high-school English students were separating run-on sentences into
shorter ones.  A sentence to be revised was:  "My little brother's favourite
movie is 'Return of the Jedi' and he pretends our dog is an Ewok and he
tries to save our house from Darth Vader."  A student condensed this to:
"My little brother has a problem with reality."

----------

I was in a queue at a department store when a policeman ahead signed a
cheque and handed it to the cashier, who said "May I see your driver's
licence?"  As the officer picked up his purchases and walked away, I
overheard the cashier whisper to a co-worker, "I've always wanted to ask a
policeman for his driver's licence."

----------

Our home was on the market, and real-estate agents were constantly bringing
prospective buyers.  I am away at work each day, but this was not a problem
until my beautiful purebred Persian cat came into heat.  Anxious that she
remained indoors, I put up a large sign:  "Please Do Not Let Cat Out!"

When I returned home that night, this note was posted below my warning:
"Another agent must have let your big tomcat out, because he was waiting at
the door when I showed some people through your home.  I let him back in."

We were moving, and my sons and I crowded into the cab of our rented truck.
There was no room left for our enormous black great dane.  Whimsically, we
put him in the driver's seat of the utility we were towing.

On the road, there was a sudden eruption of noise.  We looked back to see
the dane's huge paws resting on the horn while he howled in protest.  As I
was about to pull over, another car came alongside.

"Hey!" the driver yelled.  "Why don't you let him pass?"

Patrick Cormack, a member of the British parliament, recalls a small setback
in his first successful general election campaign:

Standing in the back of a Land Rover as we bumped our way down a lane to one
of the smallest villages in the constituency, I could just see above the
hedgerows into a field where cows were munching contentedly.  In a playful
mood, I chattered into the loudspeaker, "Now, come on, you old cows - I can
do with your support."

Suddenly we rounded a corner and my face fell.  Emerging from a Women's
Institute meeting, a phalanx of women stood transfixed, staring at the radio
car with something less than electoral fervour.

One day at work, a typed message appeared on the coin-change machine:  "It

When the burglar broke into a seemingly empty house one night, a voice
suddenly shattered the silence:  "I see you, and the saint sees you."

The shaken thief took another tentative stop.  "I see you," the voice said
again "and the saint sees you."  With that, the burglar shone his torch in
the direction that the voice was coming from.  There, in the circle of
light, sat a parrot.

"Stupid bird," the burglar uttered in relief.

"I see you," the parrot repeated, "and the saint sees you."

"Shut up," the man snarled as he turned on a lamp.  That's when he saw the
menacing doberman pinscher sitting beside the parrot's perch, staring at him
with glittering eyes.

"Get him, Saint!" squawked the parrot.

A man was griping to his friend about how he hated to go home after a late

"You wouldn't believe what I go through to avoid waking my wife," he said.
"First, I kill the engine at the end of the street and coast into the
garage.  Then I open the door slowly.  Next, I take off my shoes and tiptoe
to our room.  But just as I'm about to slide into bed, she always wakes up
and gives me hell."

"I make a big racket when I go home," his friend said.

"You do?"

"Sure.  I beep the horn, slam the door, turn on all the lights, stamp up to
the bedroom and give my wife a big kiss. 'Hi, Alice,' I say.  'How about a
little smooch for your old man?'"

"And what does she say?" his friend asked in disbelief.

"She doesn't say anything," his friend replied.  "She always pretends she's
asleep."

An air-force officer stationed at Juba, Sudan, acquired a pet lion cub.  Of
peaceful disposition, it was a favourite with everyone and in time it grew
to full size.

One evening, an airman saw the lion lying on the runway and he tried in vain
to find the officer.  A friend said that all that was necessary was to go up
to the lion and kick its rump, whereupon it would take off.  Rather
nervously, the airman gave the lion a hefty kick.  Sure enough, it wandered
off into the bush.

Half an hour later, the officer appeared.  "It's all right now, sir," said
the young man. "Your lion was on the runway, but I kicked it off."

"Don't talk rubbish," said the officer.  "My lion hasn't left my side the
entire evening."

At the small retail shop where I work as manager - and where there had never
been an accident in over 20 years - we had a sudden visit from an
occupational health officer.  He stipulated that certain regulations must be
complied with, one of which required the provision of a first-aid box.

This was duly purchased and placed in a cupboard.  A junior member of our
staff - opening the cupboard door to get an asprin - was promptly knocked
out by the first-aid box falling on her head.

Lyricist Ira Gershwin's shy and self-effacing nature is perfectly
illustrated by a story conductor-composer John Green, an old Gershwin

"We were six couples having cocktails with Ira and his wife, Leonore.  Ira
phoned a posh Hollywood restaurant for dinner reservations.  Then he
returned to the group.  'No luck,' Ira said resignedly, "They're all filled
up.'

"At this point, one of the men slipped out.  He returned minutes later.  'I
got the reservations,' he reported.

"Ira was astonished.  'But I just called and there were no tables!' he
exclaimed.  'How did you do it?'

"The other man grinned.  'It was easy, Ira,' he said. 'I just used your
name.'"

Writing humour was not easy for Robert Benchley.  Every word was born in
pain, and composing the opening sentence was sheer torture.

One morning, in his hotel room, he inserted a sheet of paper in his
typewriter and typed the word "The."  He leaned back to see what he had
wrought.  He looked it it for more than an hour while he waited for other
words to follow.  They didn't.

He went downstairs, had a leisurely lunch, then returned to his room.  He
sat down at the typewriter and stared at it.  He stared until five o'clock.
Then an idea came to him.  After "The," he typed "hell with it."  With a
feeling of accomplishment, he went downstairs to dinner.

Some years ago, according to an article in the official USSR newspaper
'Pravda', the Soviet Ministry of Railways was alarmed by the amount of
theft from rail trucks as they stood in sidings, so it set up a unit to
design a burglar-proof lock.

This unit, like all Soviet institutions, acquired a life and momentum of its
own.  It gathered together some engineers, invented a long-winded title,
found premises, set up a research program, and had all the usual trade
union, party and recreation committees.  Day after day, white-coated
designers pondered over the problem until, after two years, the boss hit
upon the perfect design.

Prototypes were made and, when the big day for the test came, all the
designers descended on a station where they chose a tain at random and
fitted 20 freight vans with the new burglar-proof locks.  Then, in a
farewell ceremony, they made a few speeches, waved goodbye, congratulated
one another and went home.

Unfortunately, no one thought of the next stage.  The train chugged off
until it came to a junction where the goods were to be unloaded for
trans-shipment.  The puzzled railway workers could not open 20 of the vans.
They tried everything, then summoned the local blacksmith.  He broke
several tools in a vain attempt to undo the locks and, in the end, the whole
lot had to be blown up with explosives.

day-shift nurses would often call and ask to be woken up by phone in the
morning.  This became a routine with one nurse.  She would phone almost
every night for this service.  One morning, I called her without looking at
the list.  "This is an obscene phone call," I said cheerfully.  "It's
five-thirty and time to get up."  After a short silence, she replied, "It's
more obscene than you think.  This is my day off."

"No," said Matthew with perfect self-possession.

British Author C.P. Show thought he didn't write dedications until he opened
a copy of his novel 'A Coat of Varnish' and saw that it was dedicated to
Kate Marsh.  "Who's Kate Marsh?" he asked one of his American editors,
Charles Scribner.  "I didn't know, so I asked my father," Scribner said. "He
said, 'If his lordship doesn't remember to whom he dedicated his book, how
should we know?'"

Kate Marsh, it turned out, was the secretary of Snow's London agent.  When
the British printers sent the manuscript to her, they addressed it, "For
Kate Marsh", words that found their way into type in the American edition.
"We thought it was very funny," Scribner said, "but Lord Snow was not

A housewife, an accountant and a lawyer were asked "How much is 2+2?"

The housewife replies: "Four!".

The accountant says: "I think it's either 3 or 4.  Let me run those figures
through my spreadsheet one more time."

The lawyer pulls the drapes, dims the lights and asks in a hushed voice,
"How much do you want it to be?"

-----

A man went to a brain store to get some brain for dinner.
He sees a sign remarking on the quality of proffesional brain offerred at
this particular brain store.  So he asks the butcher:
"How much for Engineer brain?"
"3 dollars an ounce."
"How much for <other generic proffesion> brain?"
"4 dollars an ounce."
"How much for lawyer brain?"
"100 dollars an ounce."
"Why is lawyer brain so much more?"
"Do you know how many lawyers you need to kill to get one ounce of brain?"

A grade school teacher was asking students what their parents did for a
living.
"Tim, you be first," she said.  "What does your mother do all day?"
Tim stood up and proudly said, "She's a doctor."
"That's wonderful.  How about you, Amie?"
Amie shyly stood up, scuffed her feet and said, "My father is a mailman."
"Thank you, Amie," said the teacher.  "What about your father, Billy?"
Billy proudly stood up and announced, "My daddy plays piano in a
whorehouse."
The teacher was aghast and promptly changed the subject to geography.
Later that day she went to Billy's house and rang the bell.  Billy's father
answered the door.  The teacher explained what his son had said and demanded
an explanation.
Billy's father said, "I'm actually an attorney.  How can I explain a
thing like that to a seven-year-old?"

-----

A lawyer died and arrived at the pearly gates.  To his dismay, there were
thousands of people ahead of him in line to see St. Peter.  To his surprise,
St. Peter left his desk at the gate and came down the long line to where
the laywer was, and greeted him warmly.  Then St. Peter and one of his
assistants took the lawyer by the hands and guided him up to the front of
the line, and into a comfortable chair by his desk.  The lawyer said, "I
don't mind all this attention, but what makes me so special?"

St. Peter replied, "Well, I've added up all the hours for which you billed
your clients, and by my calculation you must be about 193 years old!"

----

A Dublin lawyer died in poverty and many barristers of the city subscribed
to a fund for his funeral. The Lord Chief Justice of Orbury was asked to
donate a shilling. "Only a shilling?" said the Justice, "Only a shilling to
bury an attorney? Here's a guinea; go and bury 20 more of them."

-----

The Pope and a lawyer find themselves together before the Pearly Gates.
After a small quantum of time which was spent discussing their respective
professions, ol' St. Peter shows up to usher them to their new Heavenly
station. After passing out wings, harps, halos and such, St. Pete decides
to show them to their new lodgings. Only a brief flight from the welcome,
Pete brings them down on the front lawn (cloud-encrusted, natch) of a
huge palatial estate with all sorts of lavish trappings. This, Pete
announces, is where the lawyer will be spending eternity, (at least until
the end of time..) "Hot Dang", the Pope says to His-self, "If he's getting
a place like this, I can hardly wait to see my digs!". They take flight
once again, and as Pete leads on, the landscape below begins to appear
more and more mundane until they finally land on a street lined with
Brownstone houses. Pete indicates the third walkup on the left as the
Popes new domicile and turns to leave, wishing the pontiff his best.
The Pope, in a mild state of astonishment, cries out "Hey Pete! What's the
deal here? You put that lawyer-feller in a beautiful estate home and I,
spiritual leader of terra-firma, end up with this dive?"

Pete looks at the pontiff amusedly and replys: "Look here old fellow,
this street is practically encrusted with spiritual leaders from many
times and religions. We're putting you here with them so you guys can
get your dogma together. That other guy gets an estate, because
he's the first (non-)damned lawyer to make it up here!!"
-----
"You seem to have more than the average share of intelligence for a man
of your background," sneered the lawyer at a witness on the stand.
"If I wasn't under oath, I'd return the compliment," replied the witness.
-----
A woman and her little girl were visitng the grave of the little girl's
grandmother.  On their way through the cemetary back to the car, the
little girl asked, "Mommy, do they ever bury two people in the same
grave?"

"Of course not, dear." replied the mother, "Why would you think that?"

"The tombstone back there said 'Here lies a lawyer and an honest man.'"
-----
God decided to take the devil to court and settle their differences
once and for all.

When Satan heard this, he laughed and said, "And where do you think
you're going to find a lawyer?"
-----

The National Institute of Health (NIH) announced last week that they were
going to start using lawyers instead of rats in their experiments.
Naturally, the American Bar Association was outraged, and filed suit, but
the NIH presented some very good reasons for the switch.

1)  The lab assistants were becoming very attached to their little rats.
This emotional involvement was interfering with the research being
conducted.     No such attachment could form for a lawyer.

2)  Lawyers breed faster.

3)  Lawyers are much cheaper to care for and the humanitarian societies
won't jump all over you no matter what you're studying.

4)  There are some things even a rat won't do. However, sometimes it very
hard to exterpolate our test results to human beings.

Q:     How many lawyers does it take to change a light bulb?
A0:    Three; one to do it and two to sue him for malpractice.
A1:    It only takes one lawyer to change your light bulb to his light bulb.
A2:    You won't find a lawyer who can change a light bulb. Now, if you're
looking for a lawyer to screw a light bulb...
A3:    Whereas the party of the first part, also known as "Lawyer", and the
party of the second part, also known as "Light Bulb", do hereby and
forthwith agree to a transaction wherein the party of the second part
(Light Bulb) shall be removed from the current position as a result of
failure to perform previously agreed upon duties, i.e., the lighting,
elucidation, and otherwise illumination of the area ranging from the front
(north) door, through the entryway, terminating at an area just inside the
primary living area, demarcated by the beginning of the carpet, any
spillover illumination being at he option of the party of the second part
(Light Bulb) and not required by the aforementioned agreement between the
parties.

    The aforementioned removal transaction shall include, but not be limited
to, the following steps:

    1.) The party of the first part (Lawyer) shall, with or without
elevation on at his option, by means of a chair, stepstool, ladder or any
other means of elevation, grasp the party of the second part (Light Bulb)
and rotate the party of the second part (Light Bulb) in a counter-clockwise
direction,this point being non-negotiable.

   2.) Upon reaching a point where the party of the second part (Light Bulb)
becomes separated from the party of the third part ("Receptacle"), the party
of the first part (Lawyer) shall have the option of disposing of the party
of the second part (Light Bulb) in a manner consistent with all applicable
state, local and federal statutes.

   3.) Once separation and disposal have been achieved, the party of the
first part (Lawyer) shall have the option of beginning installation of the
party of the fourth part ("New Light Bulb").  This installation shall occur
in a manner consistent with the reverse of the procedures described in step
one of this self-same document, being careful to note that the rotation
should occur in a clockwise direction, this point also being non-negotiable.
   NOTE: The above described steps may be performed, at the option of the
party of the first part (Lawyer), by any or all persons authorized by him,
the objective being to produce the most possible revenue for the party of
the fifth part, also known as "Partnership."

If a lawyer and an IRS agent were both drowning, and you could only save

behind him.
The Madam asks "Can I help you son?"
He replys "Yes I'd like a girl for the night."
She says "I'm afraid you are too young for one of my girls."

So he gets out his wallet and gives her $200 (actually 200 pounds but the
key doesn't work).

To which she says "She'll be waiting for you up stairs."
The boy says "But shes got to have active Herpies."
The Madam replys "But all my girls are clean!"

So out comes the wallet again and he gives her another $200.

The Madam says "OK,she'll be ready for you in about 10 mins".

So he goes up the stairs dragging the dead frog. 1/2 an hour later he comes
down the stairs,with a big grin on his face,still dragging the dead frog.

By now the Madam was just a touch curious so she asked him "Why did you come
in here,dragging a dead frog and asking for a girl with active herpies?".

"Well,it's like this",he says "When I get home tonight I f*ck the
baby-sitter and she'll get it. Then when my parents get home dad will drive
her home and on the way they'll stop and have sex, and he'll get it. Later
when dad gets home mum and dad will make love and she'll get it. And at

A hunter goes into the woods to hunt a bear.  He carries his trusty
22-gauge rifle with him.  After a while, he spots a very large bear, takes
aim, and fires.  When the smoke clears, the bear is gone.  A moment later
the bear taps the hunter on the shoulder and says,

"No one shoots at me and gets away with it.  You have two choices:  I can
rip your throat out and eat you, or you can drop your trousers, bend over,
and I'll [ insert appropriate colloquial for sodomy here ]."

The hunter decides that anything is better than death, so he drops his
trousers and bends over, and the bear does what he said he would do. After
the bear has left, the hunter pulls up his trousers again and staggers back
into town.  He's pretty mad.

He buys a much larger gun and returns to the forest.  He sees the same
bear, aims, and fires.  When the smoke clears, the bear is gone.  A moment
later the bear taps the hunter on the shoulder and says,

"You know what to do."

Afterwards, the hunter pulls up his trousers, crawls back into town, and
buys a bazooka.  Now he's really mad.  He returns to the forest, sees the
bear, aims, and fires.  The force of the bazooka blast knocks him flat on
his back.  When the smoke clears, the bear is standing over him and says,

"You're not doing this for the hunting, are you?"

what looked like fuel out of the wings sumps.  Couldn't get the oil
dipstick out of the engine but said it was okay last time he looked.

Engine started okay--ran rough for about 1/2 minute.  Then died.  Then
battery would not turn prop.  Used battery cart and although starter was
smoking real good, it finally started and the prop wash blew the smoke away.

Line boy offered to fuel airplane up but pilot said he was late for an
appointment at a nearby airport.  Said it wasn't far.  Taxied about 1/2 way
out to active runway and the engine stopped.  Pushed it back to the fuel
pumps and bought 3 gallons for the left wing tank.  Started it again.  This
time, he was almost out to the runway when it quit again. Put a little rock
under nose wheel; hand propped it; and was seen still trying to climb in
the airplane as it went across the runway.  Finally got in it; blew out the
right tire trying to stop before the cement plant.

When he taxied back in to have the tire changed, he also had the line boy
hit the right wing with 3 gallons of gas. Witness, who saw the take- off,
said the aircraft lined up and took off to the north.  Takeoff looked
fairly normal--nose came up about 300 ft down the runway.  At midfield nose
came down.  Engine coughed twice--then cut power and applied the brakes
which made both doors fly open and a big fat brown book fell out on the
runway and released probably a million little white pages with diagrams on
them.  Looked like sort of a snow storm.

After several real loud runups at the end, he turned her around and took
off in the other direction going south into the wind.  Only this time he
horsed her off at the end and pulled her up real steep like one of them jet
fighter planes--to about 300 ft--then the engine quit!

Did a sort of a slow turn back toward the airport--kinda like that Art
School guy-- and about 30 ft off the McDonald's cafe she started roaring
again.  He did sort of a high speed pass down the runway; put the flaps
down to full and that sucker went up like he was going to do an Immelman!

The engine quit again and he turned right and I thought he was coming right
through the front window of the F.B.O.; but he pulled her up--went through
the TV antenna and the little rooster with the NSE&W things--over the
building then bounced the main wheels off the roof of 3 different cars in
the lot--a Porsche, a Mercedes and Dr. Brown's new El Dorado.

When he bounced off the El Dorado the engine roared to life and he got her
flying.  Came around toward the runway and set her down--once on the
overrun, once on the runway and once in the grass beside the runway.  He
taxied into the ramp--shut her down--and ordered 3 more gallons of gas.
Said it was for safety's sake.

Then he asked where the phone booth was as he had to call his student and
tell him he was going to be a little bit late.

To: ALL
Thubject: The Rules (Real Kiwi Joker's Guide)

          T H E    R U  L  E S

1.   The Female ALWAYS make the RULES. 

        "I'm the ref" ploy
        This you must ALWAYS make them think! 
        A women needs to feel important.... humour them especially when on
        the rags and you want a feed!

2.   THE RULES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT ANY TIME without prior notification.
        
        "I'm moving the goal posts" ploy
        A woman wants to be unpredictable. See "Mystique" 
        (though they never are)
        Pretend surprise... eg. " Oh! you want to clean the toilet now!?"

3.   NO MALE CAN POSSIBLY KNOW THE RULES.
        
        "We are woman here me roar" ploy #3
        Women want to exhibit decision-making functions
        (within the confines of her MANS rulings.)
        She knows the rules laid down by her MAN but feels a need to test 
        these rules, like your boy trying a forward pass to see if Ref
        notices.

4.   If the Female suspects that the Male knows all the RULES, she MUST
     immediately change some of the RULES.

        Be careful with this one.... (time of month dependent)
        Pseudo power play... again humour with things like
        " Yes Bubbles (sic) we are equal partners.. blah blah blah
        Then return to MANS rule, this is the thing she wants, 
        merely a reiterating of the RULE

5.   THE FERMALE IS NEVER WRONG.

        Who pays the bills?
        (no more be said)

6.   If the Female is wrong, it is because of a FLAGRANT MISUNDERSTANDING
     which was a DIRECT RESULT of something the Male did or said wrong.

     "Oops I've made a mistake"ploy
     Woman has admitted her fault(s). Smile, nod, say nothing the
     Woman will settle down after vacuuming.

7.   If Rule (6) applies, the Male MUST APOLOGISE IMMEDIATELY for causing
     the MISUNDERSTANDING.

        See "RAGS"
        Apologise (good humouredly) for all her mistakes, then ask if she's 
        got the washing in yet, and follow up with "the tucker's cold"

8.   The Female can change her mind at any given point in time.

        See floating point division (pentium style)
        The Woman can't remember the last thing she said, again humour
        

9.   THE MALE MUST NEVER CHANGE HIS MIND WITHOUT THE EXPRESS WRITTEN CONSENT
     from the Female.
         Easy one this... As if Woman can read... ha ha ha. 
         you know she can't as you sold her liver last week 
         to pay for your round at the pub.

10.  The Female has the every right to be ANGRY or UPSET at any time.

        See "RAGS" and random number generator
         
11.  The Male MUST remain CALM AT ALL TIMES, unless the Female wants him to
     be angry or upset.

         "I'm important too!" Ploy #125

         Woman requires TLC. Show her where to plug the iron in. 
     
12.  The Female MUST, UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, let the Male know whether or
     not she wants him to be angry or upset.
     
     No problem....
     Real Kiwi Joker's are never upset. 
     


13.  ANY ATTEMPT TO DOCUMENT THESE RULES COULD RESULT IN BODILY HARM!
     (read I want a bit!!!)

14.  If the Female has PMT, all Rules are NULL and VOID.

     See "RAGS"
15.  THE MALE CANNOT DIAGNOSE PMT.

     You see rags in little cartons about your domain... 
     op for good Kiwi Joker's joke.
     Hide rags.... ha ha ha


     RAGS:      Female state of mind like FraCTINT
     MYSTIQUE : See RAGS

number and recite a sentence using today's vocabulary word.  Today's word

In Japan, the hand can be used like a knife.
[sound effect: Heeeeee-YAH!, smashing box of kleenex]
But this method doesn't work with a telephone call...
[sound effect: dial tone]
Introducing the all-new GINSU answering machine! It cuts, it chops, it
slices, it dices your incoming calls!  How much would you pay? Don't
answer, because if you leave your name and number when you hear the tone,
we'll throw in a return phone call ABSOLUTELY FREE!

------------------------------------------------
(woman taped off a "phone sex" service)

WOMAN : (seductively) Hi.  I'm Linda.  You know, it can be really lonely
when you're a fashion model.  Sometimes I just have to ...

YOU : (interupting) Oh cmon, Linda, give me the damn phone..
(then ask for a message)

------------------------------------------------
My favorite post quake message:

    "Hi, we're not in cause we're out LOOTING!
     Leave a message and we'll call you back and tell you what we got."

------------------------------------------------
Ring...click....(sound of loud music in background)...Hello? - just a
second while I turn the stereo off (sound of person running to click off
music, which gets quiet.  sound of person running back to phone) OK, sorry
about that, hi there, who's this...well hi!... uh huh...yeah...well listen
you're talking to a machine, so please leave a message and I'll call you
back.

(this ran for a while until a friend threatened to kill us after she said
she had a 2 minute conversation with the machine.)

------------------------------------------------
I worked for a bit in the coastguard in Wales and I used to send weather
reports to other bases, using a sort of antique FAX machine. I would call
first on a special telephone and then send the data. They used to answer the
phone with:
    " Epicentre of the Universe, God speaking."
    " Hartland home for lost whores."  (that was Hartland CG)
    " Da, zis iz Ivan: do you have zee secret information, Boris?"
    " Pentagon command: transmit destruct sequence (pause) sequence correct:
      T minus one minute and counting"

And then there was one phone we didn't use, with a number one off that of
the local take-out.  With my, non-British, accent I had some great fun with
that phone.
     "Starship Enterprise, Uhura here, can you hold please?  -- Captain,
there is a transmission coming in on hailing frequency seven, do you want
it on screen?" (silence...click)
     "Vancouver coastguard, may I help you."  British long distance rates
are phenomenonal and I had this poor dude sputtering with horror that he had
managed to make a long distance call by dialing five digits.

------------------------------------------------
A friend was at a mutal friend's sister's house, and when she went out for
beer, he changed her answering machine message.  In a loud, deep, gravely,
horror-film voice he recorded, "HI, THIS IS KATHY, I'M NOT MYSELF RIGHT NOW.
IF YOU LEAVE YOUR NAME AND NUMBER, I'LL GET BACK TO YOU WHEN I'M FEELING
BETTER."

------------------------------------------------
Steve:  Hello.  Steve and Matt aren't here right now but if...
Matt:  Steve, what are you doing?
Steve:  I'm leaving a phone message since we aren't here.
Matt:  But you left the last one -- it's my turn.
Steve:  No, I'm sure it's my turn.
Matt:  No, you're incorrect.  It's definitely my turn.
Steve:  You fool.  I know it's ... wait ... Matt ... what are you doing
with that frying pan?!?
  BONK [really loud thud]
Matt:  Steve is out right now, so please leave your name and number.

------------------------------------------------
   Hi!! You've reached Janet and Chris's room. We're not in right now. If
this is our parents, we're at the library studying. Yeah, yeah, that's it,
that's the ticket. If this is John (Chris's boyfriend), Chris is out with
the girls at the party. Yeah, that's it. If this is any one else, we're at
a party and you're not. Yeah, a party with the president. Yeah and the ....
pope. Yeah that's it. <beep>

------------------------------------------------
One of my favorites had this very exciting scary music, along with a kitten
crying in the background, and the voice goes:

The machine answering this message is connected to a 5000 volt power
supply, and a relay which is wired to this small kitten.  If you hang up
before you leave a message, it will complete the circuit and will fry the
kitty.  The choice is YOURS....   BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP
------------------------------------------------
I can't come to the phone now, so...  hey -- that's a nice phone you have
there.  Hey sugar, you call this number often?  I bet you have answering
machines bothering you all the time...  yes indeedy.  Why don't you give
me a call sometime and we can listen to some old recordings...  I might
even play my beep for you...

------------------------------------------------
[VOICE 1]  Answer the phone, please, Hal.
[VOICE 2]  I'm sorry, Dave, I can't do that.

------------------------------------------------
"I've set up my answering machine so that when anyone calls, they
   here a busy signal."

------------------------------------------------
    " I'm Morley Safer."
    "I'm Harry Reasoner."
    "I'm ........
    "And I'm" <the guy whose answering machine it was>
    " We're not home; leave a message."

      He had taped the audio of the beginning of 60 minutes; it sounded
    very funny.

------------------------------------------------
This is not an answering machine -- this is a telepathic thought-recording
device.  After the tone, think about your name, your reason for calling,
and a number where I can reach you, and I'll think about returning your
call.

------------------------------------------------
    "E'llo."
    "My name is Inigo Montonya."
    "You killed my father."
    "Leave your name and number, and prepare to die."
    <beep>

------------------------------------------------
My favorite that I have heard as an answering machine message is also
from this movie.  My friend recorded the section that goes something
like:

"I'm writing the definative work on pain, and I would like you to tell me
how the machine makes you feel.  Remember, be honest.  This is for
posterity."

------------------------------------------------
==================
PHONE ANNECDOTES:
==================

Every now and then we are all pestered by these high-tech telemarketing
companies where the sales pitch is usually disguised as a survey of some
kind. The despicable thing about these things is that they won't leave you
alone. If you hang up, they will just call back again.   One day my wife
got a call from one of these computer systems, and her answering machine
answered. The conversation that followed was hilarious, as it consisted of
two machines talking to each other without having the slightest idea about
what each other was saying. The conversation wound up in an endless loop,
as follows:

[PHONE] *RING*

[ANSWERING MACHINE] "...At the tone, please give your message.
BEEEEEP."

[PHONE] "Hello. This is [company_name], and we are taking a telephone
survey ... when I ask a question, wait for the beep, then please speak
plainly.  I will repeat your answer back to you, and verify it. First, what
is your phone number? BEEEEEEEEEEEEEP."

(The answering machine, upon hearing the beep, got confused and thought

it was a play-back command, and generated another beep in response.)

[ANSWERING MACHINE] "BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP."

[PHONE] "Thank you! Your phone number was 443-28347-47756-377764-22222. Is
that correct? BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP."

[ANSWERING MACHINE] "BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP."

[PHONE] "Thank you! Do you have any children? BEEEEEEEEEEEEEP."

[ANSWERING MACHINE] "BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP."

[PHONE] Thank you! What is the age of your first child? BEEEEEEEEEEP."

[ANSWERING MACHINE] "BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP."

[PHONE] "Your first child is 1,222 years old. Is that correct?
BEEEEEP."

[ANSWERING MACHINE] "BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP."

[---------------  BEGIN ENDLESS LOOP ----------------]

[PHONE] "Thank you! Do you have any more children? BEEEEEEP."

[ANSWERING MACHINE] "BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP."

[PHONE] "Thank you! What is this child's age? BEEEP."

[ANSWERING MACHINE] "BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP."

[PHONE] "This child is 4,233 years old. Is that correct? BEEEEP."

[ANSWERING MACHINE] "BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEP."

[---------------------END LOOP -----------------------]

My wife, upon noticing that the answering machine had been going for over
half an hour, turned up the volume to find out what was going on. When she
discovered this endless loop (by now she had over 200 children, all over
1,000 years old), she switched off the answering machine. The computer
never called again.

----------------------------------------------------
     My solution is upon realizing that I'm talking with a "telemarketing
representative", I ask:  "Are you a telemarketer?"  The answer
(suprisingly) is usually yes.  I then go into a sales pitch to sell a
(nonexistant) telephone ear-cusion.
     I insist that every telemarketer must have one for safety and comfort.
     Eventually, they'll forget to try selling me anything.

----------------------------------------------------
Try the following next time the phone rings:

You (when you answer):  Hello, is Jimmy there?

Caller: No, I'm afraid you have a wrong number.

You: Oh.  Sorry.

Caller: No problem... (click)
