I know , I could

It's school holidays here in the West, so for the past three
days I [along with my son] took the grandkids into the
outback. We ventured to Mukinbudin to check out some
of the fascinating local scenry.
"Muka" has some amazing rock formations within its boundaries

Upon my return Iwas very surprised to read that
Miss Cellania had honoured me with this award

Therfore I award the following
It occurred to me
Florida 5708
The Club
A hunter walking through the jungle, found a huge, dead mastodon,
with a pigmy standing beside it.
Amazed, he asked, 'Did you kill that?'
The pigmy said, 'Yes.'
The hunter asked, 'How could a little bloke like you kill a huge beast like that?'
The pigmy said, 'I killed it with my club.'
The astonished hunter asked, 'How big is your club?'
The pigmy replied,
'We have about three hundred members.'

Cartoons.....Snow White

Cartoons stolen from Miss Cellania


Two molecules are walking down the street
and they run in to each other.
One says to the other,
"Are you all right?"
"No, I lost an electron!"
"Are you sure?"
"I'm positive

Sometime ago Iposted this video, its funny enough for a re-run
Drambuie...Market Research with Bogans in a Sydney Pub
Day dreaming

Eminent people at work
Eugene d'Albert (noted German composer) was married six times.
At an evening reception which he attended with his fifth wife shortly after their wedding,
he presented the lady to a friend who said politely,
"Congratulations, Herr d'Albert; you have rarely introduced me to so charming a wife."
During a visit to America, Winston Churchill was invited to a buffet luncheon at which cold fried chicken was served.
Returning for a second helping, he asked politely, "May I have some breast?"
"Mr. Churchill," replied the hostess, "in this country we ask for white meat or dark meat." Churchill apologized profusely.
The following morning, the lady received a magnificent orchid from her guest of honor.
The accompanying card read:
"I would be most obliged if you would pin this on your white meat."
Sentenced to two years hard labor (for Sodomy), Oscar Wilde stood handcuffed in driving rain waiting for transport to prison.
"If this is the way Queen Victoria treats her prisoners," he remarked,"
she doesn't deserve to have any."
James McNeill Whistler's (painter of "Whistler's Mother") failure in his West Point chemistry examination once provoked him to remark in later life,
"If silicon had been a gas, I should have been a major general."
German philosopher) Georg Wilhelm Hegel, on his deathbed, complained,
"Only one man ever understood me."
He fell silent for a while and then added, "And he didn't understand me."
Driving through a Swiss city one day, Alfred Hitchcock suddenly pointed out of the car window and said, "
That is the most frightening sight I have ever seen."
His companion was surprised to see nothing more alarming than
a priest in conversation with a little boy, his hand on the child's shoulder.
"Run, little boy," cried Hitchcock, leaning out of the car. "Run for your life!"
Grover Cleveland, though constantly at loggerheads with the Senate,
got on better with the House of Representatives.
A popular story circulating during his presidency concerned the night
he was roused by his wife crying,
"Wake up! I think there are burglars in the house."
"No, no, my dear," said the president sleepily,
"in the Senate maybe, but not in the House."
Will Rogers, having paid too much income tax one year, tried in vain to claim a rebate.
His numerous letters and queries remained unanswered.
Eventually the form for the next year's return arrived.
In the section marked "DEDUCTIONS,"
Rogers listed: "Bad debt, US Government -- $40,000."
Lady Astor was giving a costume ball and Winston Churchill
asked her what disguise she would recommend for him.
She said, "Why don't you come sober, Mr. Prime Minister?"

Paddy met Mick in the street and said,
'Paddy, in future you should draw your bedroom curtains
before making love to your wife !'
'And why would I be doing that?' Paddy asked.
'Because,' said Mick, 'all the street was sniggering when
they saw you two making love all yesterday.'
Mick said, 'Nosey buggers, anyway, the laugh's on them.
I wasn't home yesterday.'
