Humour for a Monday Morning

The
Population of this country is 33 million.

16
Million are retired.

That leaves 17 million to do the
Work.

There are 8 million in school.

Which leaves 9 million to do the work.

Of this there are 5 million employed by the federal  provincial and municipal
Governments.


Leaving 4 million to do the work.

200,000 are in the armed forces preoccupied
With killing TERRORISTS. Which leaves 3.8
Million to do the work.

Take from that total the 3
Million people who live on social benefits. And that
leaves 800,000 to do the work. At any given
Time there are 18,000 people in hospitals.

Leaving
782,000 to do the work.


Now, there are 82,998 people
in prisons and 699,000 unemployed and wandering the streets

That leaves just two people to do the
Work.

You and me.

And there
You are,

Sitting on your ass,
At your computer, reading jokes

Nice. Real nice.

No offence, of course.

New Electric Car Issues

A lot of folks are now thinking of buying an electric vehicle these days. Personally, I think this is a bad decision, as if you took a close look at all that goes into making these cars, you would soon see that the material they require and how they have to go about getting these materials, is also going to pollute and hurt our environment. Maybe more so than our fossil fuels that we are using today. Not to forget all the cost it will take to switch over. And then … where are we going to get all the electricity to keep them charged up.

Click on image to enlarge.

What I believe should be done is make our fossil fuels safe to use, and go with that. We have lots and if we did that our country would become more self-reliant than ever before … that is the fix for our country. Becoming self-reliant instead of relying on others.

Humour?

In a small town, a man just opened a small store selling trumpets and guns.

One day, his neighbour pays him a visit and says, “So, how is your strange business going?”

“What do you mean strange?”

“Because you sell only trumpets and guns!”

“So?”

“Well, let me put it this way, what do you sell the most, trumpets or guns?”

“It evens itself out. Each time a customer buys a trumpet, one of his neighbours buys a gun.”

Yea, I agree, it is pretty bad.

Pays to take a good look nowadays.

This sign got my wife’s attention the other day. Only for a second, though.

What Goes Around, Comes Around

   Their three kids, all successful, agreed to a Sunday dinner in their honor. 

   "Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad," gushed Son No. 1 'Sorry I'm running late.  I had an emergency at the hospital with a patient, you know how it is, and I didn't have time to get you a gift."

   "Not to worry," said the father. "Important thing is we're all together today ."

   Son No. 2 arrived.  "You and Mom look great.  Dad,  I just flew in from Montreal between depositions and didn't have time to shop for you."

      “It’s nothing," said the father  "We're lad you were able to come." 

     Just then the daughter arrived "Hello and happy anniversary!
     Sorry, but my boss is sending me out of town and I was really busy packing so I didn't have time to get you anything." 

 After they had finished dessert, the father said, "There's something your mother and I have wanted to tell you for a long time. 
     You see, we were really poor, but we managed to send each of you to college.
  Through the years your mother and I knew we loved each other very much, but we just never found the
ime to get married." 

 The three children gasped and said, "WHAT?  You mean we're bastards?" 

 "Yep," said the father, "Cheap ones, too .. ."

Who Knew Popeye The Sailer Man?

POPEYE THE SAILOR MAN

  • WHO KNEW?
    His real name was Frank “Rocky” Fiegel.
    He was born in 1868 in Poland and, as a child, immigrated to the United States with his parents, who settled down in a small town in Illinois. As a young man, Rocky went to sea. After a 20 year career as a sailor in the Merchant Marines, Fiegel retired.
    He was later hired by Wiebusch’s Tavern in the city of Chester, Illinois as a ‘Bouncer’ to maintain order in the rowdy bar.
    Rocky quickly developed a reputation for always being involved in fighting (and usually winning). As a result, he had a deformed eye (“Pop-eye”).
    He also ‘always’ smoked his pipe, so he always spoke out of one side of his mouth.
    In his spare time as a Bouncer, Rocky would entertain the customers by regaling them with exciting stories of adventures he claimed to have had over his career as a sailor crossing the ‘Seven Seas.’

The creator of Popeye, Elzie Crisler Segar, grew up in Chester and, as a young man, met Rocky at the tavern and would sit for hours listening to the old sailor’s amazing ‘sea stories.’
Years later, Segar became a cartoonist and developed a comic strip called ‘Thimble Theater.’
He honoured Fiegel by asking if he could model his new comic strip character, ‘Popeye the Sailor Man,’ after him. Naturally Fiegel was flattered and agreed.
Segar claimed that ‘Olive Oyl,’ along with other characters, was also loosely based on an actual person. She was Dora Paskel, owner of a small grocery store in Chester.
She apparently actually looked much like the Olive Oyl character in his comics.
He claimed she even dressed much the same way.
Through the years, Segar kept in touch with Rocky and always helped him with money; giving him a small percentage of what he earned from his ‘Popeye’ illustrations.
WHO didn’t love the cartoons??? We watched them religiously … so funny, so moral … each story had a good ending … wonder if kids these days even KNOW who Popeye is??? Who knew he was a real man??

It Pays to Listen to the whole story these days.

Little Johnny watched his daddy’s car pass by the school playground and go into the woods. Curious, he followed the car and saw Daddy and Aunt Jane in a passionate embrace.

Little Johnny found this so exciting that he could hardly contain himself as he ran home and started to tell his mother. ‘Mummy, I was at the playground and I saw Daddy’s car go into the woods with Aunt Jane. I
went back to look, and he was giving Aunt Jane a big kiss, and then he helped her take off her shirt. Then Aunt Jane helped Daddy take his pants off, then Aunt Jane…’>

At this point, Mummy cut him off and said, ‘Johnny, this is such an interesting story, let’s save the rest of it for supper time. I want to see the look on Daddy’s face when you tell it tonight.’>

At the dinner table that evening, Mummy asked little Johnny To tell his story
Johnny started his story, ‘I was at the playground and I saw Daddy’s car go into the woods with Aunt Jane. I went back to look, and he was giving Aunt Jane a big kiss, then he helped her take off her shirt. Then Aunt Jane helped Daddy take his pants off, then Aunt Jane and Daddy started doing the same thing that Mummy and Uncle Bill used to do when Daddy was away on the oil rigs.’

Mummy fainted!

Moral:

Sometimes you need to just shut up and listen to the whole story before you interrupt!

Old Geezer’s

A retired physician, Doctor Gordon Geezer, became very bored in retirement and decided to re-open a medical clinic.
He put a sign-up outside that said: “Dr. Geezer’s clinic. Get your treatment for $500 – if not cured, get back $1,000.”

Doctor Digger Young, who was positive that this old geezer didn’t know beans about medicine, thought this would be a great opportunity to get $1,000. So he went to Dr. Geezer’s clinic.
Dr. Young: “Dr. Geezer, I have lost all taste in my mouth. Can you please help me?”
Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in Dr. Young’s mouth.”
Dr. Young: ‘Aaagh! — This is Gasoline!”
Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations!
You’ve got your taste back. That will be $500.”
Dr. Young gets annoyed and goes back after a couple of days figuring to recover his money.
Dr. Young: “I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything.”
Dr. Geezer: “Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient’s mouth.”
Dr. Young: “Oh, no you don’t — that is Gasoline!”
Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You’ve got your memory back. That will be $500.”
Dr. Young (after having lost $1000) leaves angrily and comes back after several more days.
Dr. Young: “My eyesight has become weak — I can hardly see anything!”
Dr. Geezer: “Well, I don’t have any medicine for that so, “Here’s your $1000 back” (giving him a $10 bill).
Dr. Young: “But this is only $10!”
Dr. Geezer: “Congratulations! You got your vision back! That will be $500.”
Moral of story — Just because you’re “Young” doesn’t mean that you can outsmart an “old Geezer”
Remember: Don’t make old people mad. We don’t like being old in the first place, so it doesn’t take much to tick us off.
ENJOY YOUR DAY!!!
P.S. Written in large print for old Geezers

My Little GPS

Now, before you read this, remember one thing. I don’t write this stuff, it was sent to me by someone else. I have to say though, that this feller has a good sense of humour, and is a great poet. I am also not sure if he is married, but I understand why he would like to remain anonymous, LOL.

I have a little GPS, it sits there in my car.
A GPS is a driver’s friend, it tells you where you are.
I have a little GPS, I’ve had it all my life.
It’s better than the normal ones because it is my wife.

It gives me full instructions, especially how to drive.
“It’s sixty miles an hour”, it says, “You’re doing sixty five”.
It tells me when to stop and start, and when to use the brake
And tells me that it’s never ever, safe to overtake.

It tells me when a light is red, and when it goes to green.
It seems to know instinctively, just when to intervene.
It sees the vehicles in front, and all those to the rear.
And taking this into account, it specifies “Too near”.

I’m sure no other driver, has so helpful a device.
When we leave and lock the car, it still gives me advice.
It fills me up with counselling, each journey’s pretty fraught.
So why don’t I exchange it, and get a quieter sort?

Ah well, you see, it cleans the house, makes sure I’m properly fed.
It washes all my shirts and things, and keeps me warm in bed!
Despite all these advantages, and my tendency to scoff,
I only wish that now and then, I could turn the darn thing off!

Eye Drops Worth Buying

Damn!! I have to get myself some.

Opinions Matter

   Lawyers should never ask a Georgia Grandma a question if they aren't prepared for the answer.             

In a trial, a Southern small-town prosecuting attorney called his first witness, a grandmotherly, elderly woman to the stand. He approached her and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know me?' She responded, 'Why, yes, I do know you, Mr. Williams. I've known you since you were a boy, and frankly, you've been a big disappointment to me. You lie, you cheat on your wife, and you manipulate people and talk about them behind their backs. You think you're a big shot when you haven't the brains to realize, you'll never amount to anything more than a two-bit paper pusher. Yes, I know you.'                          

The lawyer was stunned. Not knowing what else to do, he pointed across the room and asked, 'Mrs. Jones, do you know the defence attorney?'            

She again replied, 'Why yes, I do. I've known Mr. Bradley since he was a youngster, too. He's lazy, bigoted, and he has a drinking problem. He can't build a normal relationship with anyone, and his law practice is one of the worst in the entire state. Not to mention he cheated on his wife with three different women. One of them was your wife. Yes, I know him.'           

The defence attorney nearly died.             

The judge then asked both counsellors to approach the bench and, in a very quiet voice, said,  'If either of you idiots asks her if she knows me, I'll send you both to the electric chair.
