Social media


Bright sec with paper web


I’ve given up social media for the New Year and am trying to make friends outside Facebook while applying the same principles.



Every day I walk down the street and tell passersby what I’ve eaten, how I feel, what I did the night before, and what I will do tomorrow.





Then I give them pictures of my family, my dog, and me gardening. I also listen to their conversations and tell them I love them. And it works.





I already have three people following me—two police officers and a psychiatrist.

Never Cross a Nurse

watering can woman webA big shot lawyer had to spend a couple of days in the hospital. He was a royal pain to the nurses because he bossed them around just like he did his staff. None of the hospital staff wanted to have anything to do with him.
The head nurse was the only one who could stand up to him. She came into his room and announced, “I have to take your temperature.” After complaining for several minutes, he finally settled down, crossed his arms and opened his mouth.
“No, I'm sorry,” the nurse stated, “but for this reading, I can't use an oral thermometer.” This started another round of complaining but eventually he rolled over and bared his behind.
After feeling the nurse insert the thermometer, he heard her announce, “I have to get something. Now you stay JUST LIKE THAT until I get back!”
She left the door to his room open on her way out. He cursed under his breath as he heard people walking past his door, laughing.
After a half hour, the man's doctor came into the room.
“What's going on here?” asked the doctor.
Angrily, the man answered, “What's the matter, Doc? Haven't you ever seen someone having their temperature taken?”
After a pause, the doctor confessed...
“Not with a carnation.”

Going Nuts

A man visits his aunt in the nursing home. It turns out that she is taking a nap, so he just sits down in a chair in her room, flips through a few magazines, and munches on some peanuts sitting in a bowl on the table.
Eventually, the aunt wakes up, and her nephew realises he's absentmindedly finished the entire bowl of peanuts!
"I'm so sorry, auntie, I've eaten all of your peanuts!"
"That's okay, dearie," the aunt replied."After I've sucked the chocolate off, I don't care for them anyway."

Lessons in Management Vol. 3

angrybossywoman_TNCorporate Lesson 3: Respect leadership hierarchy wisely

A sales rep, an administration clerk and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp. They rub it and a Genie comes out in a puff of smoke.

The Genie says, "I usually only grant three wishes, so I'll give each of you just one."

"Me first! Me first!" says the admin clerk. "I want to be in the Bahamas, driving a speedboat, without a care in the world."

Poof! She's gone.

"Me next! Me next!" says the sales rep. "I want to be in Hawaii, relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of pina coladas and the love of my life."

Poof! He's gone.

"Okay, you're up," the Genie says to the manager.

The manager says, "I want those two back in the office after lunch."

Moral of the Story: Always let your boss have the first say.


Politics - For the Libs

Kevin Rudd, Julia Gillard, and Wayne Swan were flying on the Executive Airbus to a gathering in Canberra when Rudd turns to Gillard and chuckled, “You know, I could throw a $1000 bill out the window right now and make someone very happy.”

Gillard shrugs and replies, “Well, I could throw ten $100 bills out the window and make ten people happy.”

Not to be outdone, Swan says, “Well I could throw a hundred $10 bills out the window and make a hundred people happy.”

The pilot rolls his eyes and says to his co-pilot, “Such arrogant jerks back there. I could throw all three of them out the window and make 21 million people happy.”


Democracy Explained

1. REPRESENTATIVE DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. Your neighbours pick someone to tell you who gets the milk.

2. SINGAPOREAN DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. The government fines you for keeping two unlicensed farm animals in an apartment.

3. AMERICAN DEMOCRACY: The government promises to give you two cows if you vote for it. After the election, the president is impeached for speculating in cow futures. The press dubs the affair "Cowgate". The cow sues you for breach of contract.

4. BRITISH DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. You feed them sheep's' brains and they go mad. The government doesn't do anything.

5. EUROPEAN DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. At first the government regulates what you can feed them and when you can milk them. Then it pays you not to milk them. After that it takes both, shoots one, milks the other and pours the milk down the drain. Then it requires you to fill out forms accounting for the missing cows.

6. OLD HONG KONG DEMOCRACY: You have two cows. You sell three of them to your publicly-listed company, using letters of credit opened by your brother-in-law at the bank, then execute a debt/equity swap with associated general offer so that you get all four cows back, with a tax deduction for keeping five cows. The milk rights of six cows are transferred via a Panamanian intermediary to a Cayman Islands company secretly owned by the majority shareholder, who sells the right to all seven cows' milk back to the listed company. The annual report says that the company owns eight cows, with an option on one more. Meanwhile, you kill the two cows because of bad feng shui.  


Scouts' Honour

Dear Mum & Dad,


Our Scout Leader told us to write to our parents in case you saw the flood on TV and are worried. We are okay. Only three tents got washed away. Luckily, none of us got drowned because we were all up on the mountain looking for Adam when it happened.

Please call Adam's mother and tell her he is OK. He can't write because of the cast but I got to ride in one of the search and rescue 4WDs. It was neat. We never would have found Adam in the dark if it hadn't been for the lightning.

Scout Leader Keith got mad at Adam for going on a hike alone without telling anyone. Adam said he did tell him, but it was during the fire so he probably didn't hear him. Did you know that if you put petrol on a fire, it blows up? Matthew is going to look weird until his hair grows back.

We will be home on Saturday if Scout Leader Keith gets the bus fixed. It wasn't his fault about the crash. The brakes worked okay when we left.

Guess what? We all passed our first aid merit badges. When Andrew dived into the lake and cut his arm, we got to see how a tourniquet works.

Steven and I threw up, but Scout Leader said it probably was just food poisoning from the leftover chicken. He said they got sick that way with food they ate in prison.

I have to go now. We are going to town to mail our letters & buy some more beer and ammo. Don't worry about anything. We are fine and tonight it's my turn to sleep in the Scout Leader's tent.

Dead ringer

As the coffin was slowly being lowered into the grave at the funeral of a traffic warden, a voice inside it screamed "I'M NOT DEAD , I'M NOT DEAD!!" To which the priest smugly answered "I am sorry my son, but I've already filled out the paperwork".....


Snappy answer 1.

The cop got out of his car and the P-plater who was stopped for speeding rolled down his window.

"I've been waiting for you all day," the cop said.

The P-plater replied, "Yeah, well I got here as fast as I could."


Book_around_ankle_web.jpgSnappy answer 2.

A truck driver was driving along on the freeway. A sign comes up reads "low bridge ahead." Before he knows it the bridge is right ahead of him and he gets stuck under the bridge. Cars are backed up for miles. Finally, a police car comes up.

The policeman gets out of his car, walks around to the truck driver, puts his hands on his hips, and says, "Got stuck, huh?"

The truck driver says, "No, I was delivering this bridge and ran out of petrol."


Instructions for medical secretaries

Verbs has to agree with their subjects.

Prepositions are not words to end sentences with.

And don't start a sentence with a conjunction. Handstand_man_web.jpg

Avoid clichés like the plague (They're old hat). 

Be more or less specific.

Parenthetical remarks (however relevant) are (usually) unnecessary.

One should NEVER generalise. 

Don't use no double negatives.

One word sentences. Eliminate.

Analogies in writing are like feathers on a snake.

The passive voice is to be ignored.

Never use a big word when a diminutive one would suffice.

Use words correctly irregardless of how others use them.

Understatement is always the absolute best way to put forward earth shaking ideas.

Use the apostrophe in it's proper place and omit it when its not needed.

You've heard it once you've heard it a thousand times: Resist hyperbole; not one writer in a million can use it correctly.

Exaggeration is a billion times worse than understatement.

Proofread carefully to see if you any words out

"But how do you know when to lift your legs for the final arrival on the ground?" ask his friend.

"Oh," replies the blind man, "as soon as the dog's leash goes slack."

"My darling," he replied, "think nothing of it.  I get all the thanks I need every time I see your mother kiss you on the cheek."


Cloning around

Two clones are on a roof when one of them begins swearing. Enraged, the other clone pushes the swearer off.

The next day the police arrest him for making an obscene clone fall.


Origin of ‘the finger'

Before the Battle of Agincourt in 1415, the French, anticipating victory over the English, pledged to cut off the middle finger of all captured English soldiers. Without the middle finger, it would be impossible to draw the renowned English longbow and therefore the archers would be incapable of fighting in the future.

This famous weapon was made of the native English Yew tree, and the act of drawing the longbow was known as "plucking the yew." Much to the bewilderment of the French, the English won the battle and began mocking the French by waving their middle fingers at the defeated French, crying, "See, we can still pluck yew! Pluck yew!"

Over the years, some 'folk etymologies' have grown up around this symbolic gesture.  Since 'pluck yew' is rather difficult to say, the consonant cluster at the beginning has gradually changed to a labiodental fricative 'F', and thus the words often used in conjunction with the one-finger-salute are mistakenly thought to have something to do with an intimate encounter.

It is also because of the pheasant feathers on the arrows that the symbolic gesture is known as "giving the bird."

The bathtub test

During visit to the mental asylum, a visitor asked the Director how he determines whether a patient should be institutionalised.  

"Well," said the Director, "we fill up a bathtub, then we offer a teaspoon, a teacup, and a bucket to the patient and ask him or her to empty the bathtub."

"Oh, I understand," said the visitor. "A normal person would use the bucket because it's bigger than the spoon or the teacup."

"No," said the Director. "A normal person would pull the plug.  Do you want a bed near the window?"

Business_despondent_door_slam_web.jpgJapanese bank crisis

Following the problems in the sub-prime lending market in America and the run on HBOS in the UK, uncertainty has now hit Japan.

In the last 7 days, Origami Bank has folded, Sumo Bank has gone belly up, and Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches.

Yesterday, it was announced that Karaoke Bank was up for sale and will likely go for a song, while today shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived.

Samurai Bank is soldiering on following sharp cutbacks. Ninja Bank is reported to have taken a hit but they remain in the black. Furthermore, 500 staff at Karate Bank got the chop and analysts report that there is something fishy going on at Sushi Bank, where it is feared staff may get a raw deal.



Mexican smuggler

Juan rides up to the Mexican border on his bicycle. He's got two large bags over his shoulders. The guard stops him and asks, "What''s in the bags?"

"Sand," Juan answers.

The guard says, "We'll just see about that. Get off the bike." The guard takes the bags and rips them apart; he empties them out and finds nothing in them but sand. He detains Juan overnight and has the sand analyzed, only to discover that there is nothing but pure sand in the bags.

The guard releases Juan, puts the sand into new bags, hefts them onto the man''s shoulders, and lets him cross the border.

A week later, the same thing happens. The guard asks, "What have you got in the bags?"

"Sand," says Juan.

The guard does a thorough examination and discovers that the bags contain nothing but sand. He gives the sand back to Juan and Juan crosses the border on his bicycle.

This sequence of events is repeated every day for three years, until finally, Juan stops showing up. The guard later ran into him in a Mexican cantina.

"Hey, buddy," says the guard, "I know you are smuggling something. It's driving me crazy. It's all I think about. I can't sleep. Just between you and me, what are you smuggling?"

Juan sips his beer and says, "Bicycles."

The butler did it?


The mistress of the mansion summons her butler to her bedroom and instructs him, "Jeeves, take off my shoes, roll down my stockings, remove my dress, loosen my bra, slip off my petticoat, and pull down my panties."

Reluctantly, the butler does so.

"Now," the mistress says, "If I ever catch you wearing my clothes again, you will be sacked!"

Two minute management course

Lesson One

An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing.

A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, "Can I also sit like you and do nothing?"

The eagle answered: "Sure, why not."

So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit, and ate it.

Management Lesson: To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.Bird_Perch_on_web.jpg

Lesson Two

A turkey was chatting with a bull. "I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree," sighed the turkey, "but I don't have the energy."

"Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?" replied the bull. "They're packed with nutrients."

The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough strength to reach the lowest branch of the tree. The next day, after eating more dung, he reached the second branch. Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree.

He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.

Management Lesson: Bull shit might get you to the top but it won't keep you there.

Lesson Three

A little bird was flying north for the winter. It was so cold, the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field.

While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him. As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realise how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out! He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy.

A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate. The cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung and promptly dug him out and ate him.

Management Lesson:

1. Not everyone who shits on you is your enemy.

2. Not everyone who gets you out of shit is your friend.

3. And when you're in deep shit, it's best to keep your mouth shut!

Talk to the animals

Kiwi: "The dog doesn't talk, you stupid Aussie."

Ventriloquist: "Hello dog, how's it going mate?"

Dog: "Doin' all right."

Kiwi: (look of extreme shock)

Ventriloquist: "Is this guy your owner?" (pointing at the Kiwi)

Dog: "Yep"

Ventriloquist: "How does he treat you?"

Dog: "Real good. He walks me twice a day, feeds me great food, and takes me to the lake once a week to play."Tightrope_Dog_web.jpg

Kiwi: (look of utter disbelief)

Ventriloquist: "Mind if I talk to your horse?"

Kiwi: "Uh, the horse doesn't talk either ... I think."

Ventriloquist: "Is this your owner?" (pointing at the villager)

Horse: "Yep"

Ventriloquist: How does he treat you?

Horse:"Pretty good, thanks for asking. He rides me regularly and brushes me down often."

Kiwi: (total look of amazement)

Ventriloquist: "Mind if I talk to your sheep?"

Kiwi (in a panic): "The sheep's a liar."

Bjorn and Sven came to Australia from Sweden in search of good jobs.

Dancing_web.jpgSo they went to the unemployment office the first day they got in. The unemployment officer asked Bjorn what he did in Sweden and Bjorn said he put the elastic lining in women's pantyhose. The officer told him that job wasn't of great importance in Australia, so he would only get $100 a week.

The next day Sven went in. When they asked him his occupation, he said, "Diesel fitter." The unemployment officer thought he did something important with diesel engines, so she paid him $300 dollars a week.

Bjorn was furious when he found out Sven was making more than him, so the next day he returned to the unemployment office. "Why you pay Sven more dan me?" he asked.

The officer replied, "Well, we need diesel fitters more than hose liners in our economy."

Bjorn said, "How could his yob be more important? I put de lining in de hose, but he yust puts ‘em on his head and says, "Dese'll fit ‘er."

Tourist Tips to Surviving Australia

  • Don't ever put your hand down a hole for any reason whatsoever.
  • Always carry a stick.
  • Do not attempt to use Australian slang, unless you are a trained linguist and good in a fistfight.
  • Take good maps. Stopping to ask directions only works when there are people nearby.
  • If you leave the urban areas, carry several litres of water with you at all times, or you will die.
  • Even in the most embellished stories told by Australians, there is always a core of truth that it is unwise to ignore.
  • A Stanford Medical research group advertised for participants in a study of obsessive-compulsive disorder.
  • They were looking for therapy clients who had been diagnosed with this disorder. The response was gratifying; they received 300 responses the day after the advert appeared. All from the same person.
