Christmas stories are always wonderful
 and The Bear and The Hare from upmarket department store 
John Lewis doesn’t disappoint. 
The Hare is sad that his best friend 
The Bear never gets to experience Christmas
 because Bear gets sleepy and hibernates during Christmas.
 Hare finds a way to make Christmas special 
for Bear in this wonderful animated advert from John Lewis.

There were these two professors arguing
 over which one had the dumber child.

Each professor thought his was the bigger idiot.

The first professor yells, 
"There is no way that your son is dumber. 
My son has to be THE stupidest kid on Earth."

The second professor says
 "No way, José. My son is the bigger idiot."

The first professor says
 "Let me prove it to you.
 Hey Jake! (Jake runs to his father)
 I don't know if I left myself at the office or not.
 Would you run there and find out.
 If I'm there then tell me to come home and eat dinner."

The son says, gleefully, "Sure dad" 
and runs off.

The second professor, not to be outdone says,
 "Oh Yea! Watch this! Hey Sam! Come here!
 (Sam runs to his father) 
Here are two pennies.
 With one penny buy a car
 and the other buy a microwave."

Sam says "OK" and leaves.

The professors keep arguing.

Jay and Sam meet in the street.
 And they start arguing which one has the dumber father.

Jay says, "Well listen.
 My father told me to find out if he is at the office or not.
 Well all he had to do was to call the office 
and find out himself. 
Two minutes and he would be done. 
That is ‘stupid’ if I've ever heard it."

Sam says "Well that is nothing.
 My dad told me to buy a car with one penny
 and a microwave with the other.
 But he didn't tell me which penny 
was for the car and which one is for the microwave."


The Epic Volvo Truck Split performed
 by Jean-Claude Van Damme is simply awesome!
In case you think you’re seeing things the Volvo Trucks
 are going backwards and Jean-Claude 
is standing on the side mirrors.
 This Epic Volvo Truck Split was performed
 in one take on a closed airfield in Spain
 and demonstrates the precision
 and directional stability of Volvo Dynamic Steering.





and you could be in Texas if???

You decide

Not many people know it, but the Devil actually wears a wig.
 You'd never know if you weren't told.
 It’s a perfect fit.
 Anyway, down in the world of fire and brimstone
, one guy did find out and he decided to have a little practical joke. 
So one night, he sneaks past the guardian demons 
and manages to get all the way into Satan's bed chamber
, whereupon he steals the hair-piece 
and makes good his escape. 

Well, of course, the Devil was most displeased 
by this and he rounds up his demons
 and demands to know which of them had been so lazy 
as to let someone sneak past them.
 Naturally, none of them owns up,
 which makes him even madder: 
So he calls a general meeting of everyone
 the under-world: everyone has to attend.

The meeting is held in a huge cavern 
and it's absolutely packed 
(except for the odd gap in the crowd,
 where there's a lava-pit or bottomless fissure in the flo
. The devil bel-lows at them to be quiet,
 and a deadly hush falls.

“Whoever stole it,” he shouts,
 “had better return it immediately!” 
And here he paused for effect…
”Or else there'll be Hell Toupee!”

                        I need to cut my fingernails before they get too out of hand.

           The headlines nobody likes are wrinkles.

                  Time wounds all heels.

              Mooning is lunacy.

                        Make no bones about it but the ulna has a humerus side to it.

                               Masks have no face value!

                               This old shoe is on its last leg.

A group of acrobats from Pamplona
 in the Navarre province in northern Spain
 were invited to the United States. 
They had never even been to Madrid, 
let alone a big city like New York before,
and were naturally quite excited by it.
 The producer, who had discovered them while 
vacationing in the Spanish countryside, 
wanted the acrobats to enjoy all New York had to offer,
 so he made certain that they missed nothing. 
They stayed at a fine midtown hotel, ate at the best restaurants, 
visited the museums and the Statue of Liberty.

But the acrobats' favorite things in New York 
were not these passive sight-seeing pleasures.
 They preferred the action of the rickety wooden roller coaster
 at Coney Island which provided thrills they only dreamed existed.

The subway ride back to midtown
 (because of course they eschewed the limo provided by our producer)
 was even more exhilarating
. But the biggest thrill of all came that evening
 when they were taken to a restaurant
 which was entered through a revolving door.
This was more exciting than either the roller coaster
 or the subway, and they all crowded in 
and twirled around and around.
 Faster, and faster the revolving door spun-until there
 was a giant pileup and, alas!
 they were all crushed to death.

The moral of all this is: 
You should never put all your Basques in one exit.

Men and Women

 Engrossed in a crossword puzzle a boy turns
 to his father and asks,
 "Could you help me,
 I need to have the last word."
"Better ask your mother,"
 grumbles the father. 
 "That is her department."


As an animal lover I thought you might want to pick up 
some additional knowledge.


Researchers for the Massachusetts Turnpike Authority 
found over 200 dead crows near greater Boston recently,
 and there was concern that they may have died from Avian Flu. 
 A BirdPathologist examined the remains of all the crows, 
and, to everyone's relief, confirmed the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu.
 The cause of death appeared to be vehicular impacts.

However, during the detailed analysis it was noted
 that varying colors of paints appeared on the bird's beaks and claws. 
By analyzing these paint residues it was determined
 that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact with trucks, 
while only 2% were killed by an impact with a car.

MTA then hired an Ornithological Behaviorist
 to determine if there was a cause for the disproportionate percentages
 of truck kills versus car kills.

The Ornithological Behaviorist very quickly concluded the cause:
   When crows eat road kill, 
they always have a look-out crow in a nearby tree 
to warn of impending danger. 
They discovered that while all the lookout crows could shout 
"Cah", not a single one could shout
