Here's a Pepsi Ad that was banned
Don't know why.
Looks pretty tame to me
Kevin Rudd - the Educator
Acting as a pro-education preacher Prime Minister Kevin Rudd makes many stops at grade schools where he poses for pictures, while reading to kids or chatting with them in class.
At one photo-op stop, a teacher was giving a lesson on the circulation of the blood.
Kevin Rudd chimed in, possibly trying to make the teacher's lesson clearer.
He said: "Now, children, if I stood on my head the blood, as you know, would run into it,
and I would turn red in the face."
"Yes, sir," one of the girls said.
"Then why is it that while I am standing upright the blood doesn't run into my feet?"
A little fellow at the back of the room shouted,
"'Cause your feet aren't empty."
They are not the only ones

Three bulls heard via the grapevine that the farmer was going to bring yet another bull
onto the farm, and this prospect raised a discussion among them.
1st Bull: "Boys, we all know I have been here for five years.
Once we settled our differences,we agreed on which 100 of the cows would be mine.
I don't know where this newcomer is going to get his cows, but I ain't givin' him any of mine."
2nd Bull: "That pretty much says it for me too. I've been here for three years
and have earned my right to the 50 cows we have agreed are mine.
I'll fight him off or kill him, but I'm keeping all my cows."
3rd Bull: "I've only been here a year and so far you guys have
only let me have 10 cows to take care of.
I may not be as big as you fellows yet, but I am young and virile,
so I simplymust keep all my cows."
They had just finished their big talk when a big 18-wheeler
pulls up in the middle of the paddock with only one animal in it.
It was the biggest son-of-another-bull these guys hadever seen.
At 2000 kg, each step he took the ground strained the steel ramp to breakingpoint.
1st Bull: " know, it's actually been some time since I was doing all my cows justice. Anyway, I think I can spare a few for our new friend."
2nd Bull: "I'll have plenty of cows to take care of if I just stay on the opposite side
of the paddock from him. I'm certainly not looking for an argument."
They look over at there young friend, the third bull, and find him
pawing the dirt, shaking his horns and snorting.
1st Bull: "Son, let me give you some advice real quick.
Let him have some of your cows and live to tell about it."
3rd Bull: "Hell he can have all my cows.
I'm just making sure he knows I'm a bull."

A fishing boat is working the North Sea,
when suddenly it starts shipping water.
It puts out a Mayday message:
"Help! Help! We are sinking!"
A few minutes back the reply comes through:
"Zis is ze German coastguard.
Vot are you sinking about?"

There are more Catholic churches than casinos in Las Vegas.
Not surprisingly, some worshippers at Sunday services will give casino chips
rather than cash when the basket is passed.
Since they get chips from many different casinos,
the churches have devised a method to collect the offerings.
The churches send all their collected chips to a nearby Benedictine monastery for sorting.
Then the chips are taken to the casinos of origin and cashed in.
This is done by the chip monks.


Two great cover versions of the Chuck Berry classic
Roll over Beethoven
Electric Light Orchestra

The Beatles
A young cowboy walks into the town cafe.
He sits at the counter and notices an old cowboy with his arms folded,
staring blankly at a full bowl of chili.
After fifteen minutes of just sitting there staring at it,
the young cowboy bravely asked the old cowpoke,
“If you ain’t gonna eat that, mind if I do?”
The older cowboy slowly turns his head toward the young wrangler
and in his best cowboy manner says,
“Nah, go ahead.”
Eagerly, the young cowboy reaches over and slides the bowl over to his place
and starts spooning in it with delight.
He gets nearly down to the bottom and notices a dead mouse in the chili.
The sight was shocking and he immediately barfs up the chili back into the bowl.
The old cowboy lifts his head up and looks the younger man straight in the eyes,
and quietly says,
“Yep, that’s as far as I got, too.”

Q. What's the difference between a prostitute, a nymphomaniac and a blonde?
The prostitute says, "Aren't you done yet?
"The nymphomania says, "You're done already?
"The blonde says, "Beige ... I think I'll paint the ceiling beige."

ELO doing Chuck Berry? BLASPHEMY! (But I'll give the bassman credit for working in "Theme to Peter Gunn.")

The Beatles? They would've covered Little Richard if they had the... oh wait, they did. Okay,they would've covered the Isley Brothers if they.. oh wait, they did that, too. Carl Perkins, um, okay they did that with "Match Box." Buck Owens is one that they... okay. "Act Naturally."

Nevermind. I like the originals.

G'day mate
Was going to paste the original chuck berry but the you tube version was a bit poor.
Must agree with you, a lot of these artists have a lot to thank Chuck berry for.
The original rocker gave them a lot of great material for them to cover

You ever check out the Robert Johnson catalogue? Took me years before I realize that alot of the Rock I listened to in the '60's & '70s were ripped off from the original c.c. rider who wrote them in the 20's & 30's.

The guy was a talented guitar-playing jerk... not unlike alot of the rockers who covered his stuff decades later.
