A Scotsman is sitting in a bar in Cuba and is minding his business
when a man with a large black beard walks in.
The man goes to the bar and orders a shot of whisky.
The bartender serves him, the man drinks the whisky then starts walking out the door.
The bartender says, "Hey aren'tyou going to pay for that?"
The man says, "Excuse me, Castro's Army."
The bartender says, "Alright then" and the man leaves.
A few minutes later another man with a large black beard walks in.
The man goes to the bar and orders a shot of whisky. The bartender serves him,
the man drinks the whisky then starts walking out the door.
Thebartender says, "Hey aren't you going to pay for that?"
The man says,"Excuse me, Castro's Army."
The bartender says "Alright then" and the man leaves.
The Scotsman gets an idea and walks up to the bar and orders a shot of whisky.
He drinks the whisky then starts walking out the door.
The bartender says, "Hey aren't you going to pay for that?"
The Scotsman says, "Excuse me, Castro's Army."
The bartender says, "Hey where is your big black beard?"
The Scotsman thinks quickly. He lifts his Kilt and says,
"Secret Service!"

It was the first day of the school year and the shop teacher
was surprised to see a rather "princess-like" young lady
sitting in the front row of the classroom.
Her name was Judy and she was the only girl to sign up for the
woodworking shop class that term.
The shop teacher asked her if she was sure she was in the right class,
and Judy assured him that she was.
The teacher then said, "This course may be a bit outof your league.
Do you have any experience at all working with tools?"
"What exactly do you mean?" replied Judy.
"Well, what's the difference between a nail, a screw and a bolt?" theshop teacher asked.
Judy pondered the question for a moment, then replied,
"Well, I can't rightly say as I know,
'cause I ain't never been 'bolted'

This photo, released by the National Science Foundation,
shows the shear face of the B-15A iceberg.
Icebergs, also referred to as tall water, often appear as a layer of frosting on an ocean,
providing impetus to the theory that the planet earth was once a very large cake.





Both Ian Wright and Paul Grubb reckon they spent
the whole past week making their Xmas Trees
I find it uncanny that they both finished atthe same time
and each others tree is a replica of the other
The scary part is that one lives in Perth and one in Tasmania
and their lounge rooms are identical..Weird!!!!!

While I was working in the men's section of a department store,
a woman asked me to help her choose a white dress shirt for her husband.
When Iasked about his size, the woman looked stumped at first.
Then her face brightened.
She held up her hands, forming a circle with her forefingers and thumbs.
"I don't know his size,"she said,
"but my hands fit perfectly around his neck."

An American tourist in London found himself needing to take a leak something terrible.
After a long search he just couldn't find any public bathroom to relieve himself.
So he went down one of the side streets to take care of business.
Just as he was unzipping, a London police officer showed up.
"Look here, old chap, what are you doing?" the officer asked.
"I'm sorry," the American replied, but I really gotta take a leak."
"You can't do that here," the officer told him.
"Look, follow me."
The police officer led him to a beautiful garden with lots of grass, pretty flowers,
and manicured hedges.
"Here," said the policeman, "whiz away."
The American tourist shrugged, turned, unzipped, and started pissing on the flowers.
"Ahhh," he said in relief.
Finished, he turned back toward the officer and said,
"This is very nice of you. Is this British courtesy?"
"No," retorted the policeman. "It's the French Embassy."

Came accross this on a Canadian site and thought it was prety funny
Three Things to Ponder...
1. Cows
2. The Constitution
3. The Ten Commandments
Cows -
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that our government
can track a single cow born in Canada almost three years ago,
right to the stall where she sleeps in the state of Washington?
And they track her calves to their stalls.
But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country.
Maybe we should give each of them a cow.
The Constitution -
They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq.
Why don't we just give them ours? It was written by a lot of really smart guys,
it has worked for over 200 years, and we're not using it anymore.
The Ten Commandments -
The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this:
You cannot post
"Thou Shalt Not Steal,"
"Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery", and
"Thou Shalt Not Lie"
in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians.
It creates a hostile work environment
That's all. I don't like to ponder too long. It makes me nervous.

This bloke stormed into the post office in a fury.
"I've been getting threatening letters in the mail for months
and I want them stopped."

"Yes," shouted the man.

Pilots



The pilot was sitting in his seat and pulled out a .38 revolver.
He placed it on top of the instrument panel, and then asked the navigator,
"Do you know what I use this for?"
The navigator replied timidly, "No, what's it for?"
The pilot responded, "I use this on navigators who get me lost!"
The navigator proceeded to pull out a .45 and place it on his chart table.
The pilot asked, "What's that for?"
"To be honest sir," the navigator replied,
"I'll know we're lost before you will."

One day the pilot of a Cherokee 180 was told by the tower
to hold short of the active runway while a DC-8 landed.
The DC-8 landed, rolled out, turned around, and taxied back past the Cherokee.
Some quick-witted comedian in the DC-8 crew got on the radio and said,
"What a cute little plane. Did you make it all by yourself?"
The Cherokee pilot, not about to let the insult go by,
came back with a real zinger:
"I made it out of DC-8 parts.
Another landing like yours and I'll have enough parts for another one."

Who's sleeping in my bed??



Once upon a time, this guy named Fred decided that he was
rough and tough enough to seek his fortune in the Wild West.
(This was in the days when the Wild West meant Texas and Arizona,
with indians, outlaws, tornadoes and droughts
So, Fred found his way to a frontier town and became
the bartender at the wildest saloon in the territory.
He soon proved how rough and tough he was, and the owner of the bar was pleased
with how he broke up fights and didn't skim too much off the receipts.
He told Fred that he (Fred) was doing a fine job, but he should remember one thing:
"If you ever hear even a rumor that Mad Martin is coming to town,
just save what you can, put a bottle of Red Eye on the counter,
and head out of town as fast as you can."
Fred was pretty perplexed at this, and sought explanation.
He was told that Mad Martin was an old mountain man who lived up in the hills
and only came to town once or twice a year.
However, Martin was the most dangerous guy they'd ever heard of and
few had ever encountered him and lived to tell the tale.
Fred listened carefully and then promptly forgot all about it.
Until, one day a few months later, a cowboy came riding through town at full speed,
yelling, "Martin's coming! Head for the hills!"
The result was incredible.
Everybody in town immediately jumped on their horses and took off for the hills.
Except Fred. He wanted to see this guy because he didn't believe he could be all that tough.
So, Fred just put the bottle of Red Eye on the bar, hid behind the counter, and waited.
He didn't wait long.
Soon there was a noise in the street.
As Fred looked out a hole in the wall, he saw this huge,
mean-looking guy ride down the center of the street on the
biggest bull buffalo that Fred had ever seen.
The guy stopped the buffalo in front of the bar, jumped off the beast,
punched it in the head (dropping the critter to its knees) and bellowed,
"Wait here til I get back!"
The fellow turned and walked up the steps.
Fred saw that the guy had a pair of huge mountain lions on leashes.
He tied them both to a post and kicked them soundly, hollering,
"You pussycats stay here til I'm done!"
The cats fearfully sat down.
Into the bar stormed the fellow, ripping the doors off the wall as he passed.
With two strides he approached the bar, picked up the bottle of Red Eye,
bit off the neck, and downed it all in one gulp.
Poor Fred, thoroughly frightened by now, let out a little whimper.
The guy looked down over the bar and roared,
"What the heck do you think you're looking at!?"
Fred managed to say, "N..n..n..nothing, mister.
Do you want another bottle of Red Eye?"
To which the fellow replied,
"Heck no! I don't have time! I gotta get out of here --
Mad Martin's coming!"



Man breaks record for carrying full beer glasses
An Australian has beaten the Germans at their own boozy game,

smashing the world record for carrying stein glasses full of beer.
Bavarian-born restaurant manager Reinhard Wurtz,
who recently became an Australian citizen,
broke the record for carrying one-litre steins of beer,
when he carried 20 for 40 metres.
With each beer-filled stein weighing at least 2.5 kilograms,
Mr Wurtz carried 50 kilograms of beer and glass in the record-breaking effort.
The previous record of 16 steins was held by German barmaid Anita Schwartz.


Some cartoons involving Pets









Miss Beatrice, the church organist, was in her eighties and had never Been married.
She was admired for her sweetness and kindness to all.
One afternoon the pastor came to call on her and she showed him into her quaint sitting room. She invited him to have a seat while she prepared tea.
As he sat facing her old Hammond organ, the young minister
noticed a cut-glass bowl sitting on top of it.
The bowl was filled with water, and in the water floated, of all things, a condom!
When she returned with tea and scones, they began to chat.
The pastor tried to stifle his curiosity about the bowl of water and its strange floater,
but soon it got the better of him and He could no longer resist.
“Miss Beatrice”, he said, “I wonder if you would tell me about this?” pointing to the bowl.
“Oh, yes,” she replied, “Isn’t it wonderful?
I was walking through the park a few months ago and I found this little package on the ground. The directions said to place it on the organ, keep it wet and that it would prevent the spread of disease.
Do you know I haven’t had the flu all winter.”


Bob Hill and his wife Betty are vacationing in Europe.
On a rainy day they are driving through Transylvania when Bob loses control
of their rental car and wraps it around the trunk of a huge tree.
Bob is badly injured, but is conscious.
He checks Betty and sees that she`s unconscious and bleeding from the head.
Every bone in his body is aching, but Bob sees a light in the distance
so he scoops Betty into his arms, carries her through the rain
and ends up standing in front of a huge door.
Bob knocks.
A small, hunched man opens the door and Bob says,
"You`ve got to let me use your phone. We`ve been in an accident,
and my wife has been terribly injured."
"I`m sorry," says the hunchback,
"We don`t have a phone, but my master is a doctor; come in and I`ll get him!"
Soon an elegant looking man comes down a stairway and introduces himself.
"I am not a medical doctor," he says, "but a scientist.
It is many miles from here to the nearest doctor,
but I do have some basic medical training, and will be happy to help if I can."
"Please," Bob pleaded. "Save my wife`s life."
With that, Bob collapses to the floor beside his wife and despite the efforts
of the scientist and his assistant, both Bob and Betty die.
The scientist is shattered by his failure to help Bob and Betty
and sits down at his grand piano to console himself with music.
While his assistant prepares to move Bob and Betty`s bodies,
the scientist plays, and the power and beauty of his talent fills the house.
Suddenly, the assistant sees what looks like a small twitch of Betty`s hand
then he looks over at Bob and Bob`s eyelids are fluttering!
Now Betty`s feet are moving and both of her eyes are opening!
The assistant is beside himself with joy and runs to his master and says,
"Master! Master!
The Hills are alive with the sound of music!"

IF MY BODY WERE A CAR...
If my body were a car,
this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model.
I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull
... but that's not the worst of it.
My headlights are out of focus and it's especially hard to see things up close.
My traction is not as graceful as it once was.
I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.
My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins.
It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed.
My fuel rate burns inefficiently.
But here's the worst of it --
Almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter.....
either my radiator leaks or my exhaust backfires!

Carl replied, "That's silver andit costs $300!"
"My goodness, that sure is a lotta money!" Mary exclaimed. \
Then she proceeded to describe the hinge that Harlow had sent her to buy,
and Carl went to the back room to find it.
From the back room Carl yelled,
"Mary, you wanna screw for that hinge?"
Mary replied, "No, but I will for the teapot."
This is why you can't send a woman to a hardware store.

On a crisp November morning John Howard and Kevin Rudd
somehow ended up at the same barber shop.
As they sat there, each being worked on by a different barber,
not a word was spoken.
The barbers were both afraid to start a conversation, for fear it would turn to politics.
As the barbers finished their shaves,
the one who had Kevin Rudd in his chair reached for the after shave......
Rudd was quick to stop him saying
"No way....My wife will smell that and think I've been in a whorehouse."
The second barber turned to John Howard and said
"How about you, Mr. Prime Minister"
Howard replied,
"Go ahead....My wife doesn't know what the inside of a whorehouse smells like"

A sign of the times

The future is man made




Some interesting facts about Australia that I found
* For each person in Australia there are two sheep and over 16 rabbits.
* Rabbits were introduced in 1859 by a man who brought 24 wild rabbits from England in an effort to remind him of home.
Now their ever growing number competes for food in the wild with the native animals.
* Per Capita, Australians spend more money on gambling than any other nation.
considering that we have less than 1 percent of the world's population,
we also have more than 20% of the world's poker machines.
* Swimming - In 1838 it was declared illegal to swim at public beaches during the day!
This law was enforced until 1902.
* It may surprise you to know that Australia's first police force was
comprised of 12 of the most well behaved Convicts.
* The secret ballot was first used in Victoria 1856, and South Australia in 1858.
Other states later also introduced this system.
The secret ballot was referred to as 'kangaroo voting'.
World wide, this type of anonymous voting is often
referred to as the 'Australian ballot'.
Australia was also the second country in the world to give women the vote.
* In April of 1933, 68% of West Australians voted in favour of seceding
from the Commonwealth of Australia.
However they needed permission from the British Parliament before they could officially become a new country.
At the same time the Australia's Federal Parliament was also arguing that Britain
should not interfere in Australian politics.
The end result was that Britain never made a decision
and so Western Australian remained part of the Commonwealth.
* In 1954, Bob Hawke was immortalised by the Guinness Book of Records
for sculling 2.5 pints of beer in 11 seconds.
Bob later became the Prime Minister of Australia
.* On the 17th of December 1967 after a short time at the wheel of the Australian Government, Prime Minister Harold Holt went for a swim at Cheviot Beach, near Portsea
and was never seen again.
Theories about his disappearance include kidnapping by a Russian submarine,
eaten by a shark or being carried away by the tide.
The event has been referred to as 'the swim that needed no towel'.
Now to "do a Harold Holt" is slang for "do the bolt"
.A public swimming pool was also named in his honour!
* The Australian Lyre Bird is the world's best imitator;
able to mimic the calls of 15 different species of birds in their locality
and string the calls into a melody.
It has slso been known to mimic the sound of mobile phones.
* The Purple-neck Rock Wallaby inhabits the Mount Isa region of Queensland.
This interesting little wallaby secretes a dye,
changing the colour of the fur on its face from light pink to bright purple.
* The name for the Kangaroo came about when some of the first white settlers saw
this strange animal hopping along and they asked the Aborigines what it was called.
They replied with 'Kanguru', which in the native language meant
'I don't know' (what you are asking).
* A baby kangaroo at the time of its birth measures 2 centimetres.
* Australia is home to the world's only 2 monotremes, the platypus and the echidna.
A monotreme is a animal that both lays eggs and suckles its young.
* When a specimen of the platypus was first sent to England,
it was thought to have been a practical joke.
They thought that the Australians had sewed the bill of a duck onto a rat.

He created day for footy matches, going to the beach and barbies.
He created night for going prawning, sleeping and barbies.
God saw that it was good.
Evening came and morning came and it was the Second Day.
On the Second Day God created water - for surfing, swimming and barbies on the beach.
God saw that it was good.
Evening came and morning came and it was the Third Day.
On the Third Day God created the Earth to bring forth plants
- to provide tobacco, malt and yeast for beer and wood for barbies.
God saw that it was good.
Evening came and morning came and it was the Fourth Day.
On the Fourth Day God created animals and crustaceans and chops,
sausages, steak and prawns for barbies.
God saw that it was good.
Evening came and morning came and it was the Fifth Day.
On the Fifth! ! Day God created a bloke - to go to the footy, enjoy the beach,
drink the beer and eat the meat and prawns at barbies.
God saw that it was good.
Evening came and morning came it was the Sixth Day.
On the Sixth Day God saw that this bloke was lonely and needed someone to go to the footy, surf, drink beer, eat and stand around the barbie with,
so God created Mates, and God saw that they were good blokes.
God saw that it was good.
Evening came and morning came and it was the Seventh Day
.On the Seventh Day God saw that the blokes were tired and needed a rest.
So God created Sheilas - to clean the house, bear children, wash, cook and clean the barbie. Evening came and it was the end of the Seventh Day.
God sighed, looked around at the twinkling barbie fires, heard the hiss of opening beer cans
and the raucous laughter of all the Blokes and Sheilas,
smelled the aroma of grilled chops and sizzling prawns,
and God saw that it was not just good,
it was better than that, it was bloody great!!!!
IT WAS AUSTRALIA
Not a school Bully... A teacher Bully
