This will be a short post tonight as it has been a hectic day.
Finally I got Broadband on and working- with only two phone calls to Peter. It is great being able to talk while on the internet. John has also been here, ringing and e-mailing.
He is playing Darts tonight. He is very good at that and has
heaps of trophies as he wins often.
Couple of jokes…….
There’s a shooting gallery among the sideshows at the Royal
Melbourne Show, with a row of very battered ducks marching across the back of the tent.
A drunk weaves into view and demands a go at “the Ping Ping Ping.”
The stallholder thinks it might be a bit dangerous and tries to talk him out of it, but the drunk insists.
Eventually the stallholder agrees, after all business has been quiet.
The drunk knocks three ducks over, “ping,ping,ping”.
“Struth.” says the stallholder, “you’ve won a prize>”
So he reaches under the counter and pulls out a small live tortoise from a bucket.
“Beauty,” says the drunk and he staggers off.
A while later he fronts up again, if anyting slightly more
inebriated, demanding another go.
This time the stallholder is even more reluctant to hand over the air rifle, but there’s not exactly a queue of customers waiting. So he gives the bloke another go.
“Ping, ping, ping” and down go three tin ducks.
“Blimey,” says the stallholder in astonishment, you’ve won
another bloody prize.”
And reaching down, he presents the drunk with a kewpie doll.
“What’s that?” the drunk asks.
“It’s your prize, a kewpie doll,” says the shooting gallery bloke.
“I don’t want a bloody kewpie doll,” the drunk says, “I want
a meat pie like the last time.”
A Lawyer defending a man accused of burglary tried a creative defence,
“My client merely inserted his arm into the window and removed a few trifling articles,” the enterprising lawyer said.
His arm is not himself and I fail to see how you can punish the whole individual for the offence committed by his limb.”
“Well put,” the judge replied, “Using your logic, I sentence
the defendant’s arm to one year’s imprisonment. He can
accompany it or not, as he chooses.
The defendant smiled. With his lawyers help he detached
his artificial limb, laid it on the bench and walked out.
Sorry, neither was wonderful, but I’ll be back.
Have a great day folks.
