A rabbi is on a plane with a Korean guy sitting beside him.

The Korean guy looks up and replies, "What are you talking about?! It was the Japanese who bombed Pearl Harbor. It wasn't the Chinese. And besides, I'm neither Chinese nor Japanese, I'm Korean!" The rabbi says, "Korean, Japanese, Chinese, what's the difference?"


A while later, after a brief nap, a banana, soup, a pie, a pale ale, and a wine, the audacious, tipsy, obese Korean leans over to the sleepy rabbi and says, "Ah, ahem...you know, I've never forgiven you Jews for sinking the Titanic." The rabbi looks perturbed and says, icily, "Oh, pooh! What do you mean?! The Jews didn't do any such thing! An enormous iceberg sank the Titanic, you abhorrent jerk!" The Korean shushes him and replies, "Iceberg, Rosenberg, Weinberg, so what's the difference?"

An Australian guy goes into a bar in the Greek Islands. Jill, the Australian barmaid takes his order and notices his accent. Over the course of the night they talk quite a bit. At the end of the night he asks her if she wants to have sex with him. Although she is attracted to him she says no. He then offers to pay her $200 for it.

Jill is travelling the world and she is short of funds, so she agrees.

The next night the guy turns up again and after showing her plenty of attention he asks if she will sleep with him again for $200. She figures in for a penny in for a pound - and it was fantastic the night before - so she agrees.

This goes on for 5 nights.

On the sixth night the guy comes into the bar, but this night he orders a beer and just goes and sits in the corner.

Jill is disappointed and thinks that maybe she could pay him more attention. She comes over and sits next to him.

She asks him where he is from and he tells her - Melbourne.

"So am I" she says. "What suburb in Melbourne?" "Glen Iris" he says.

"That's amazing" she says, "so am I - what street?"

"Cameo Street" he says." "This is unbelievable" she says, "what number?"

He says "Number 20" and she is astonished. "You are not going to believe this" she says, "I'm from number 22 and my parents still live there!"

"I know" he says "your father gave me $1,000 to give you!!"


This young Australian guy, Steve, is touring England. He enters a church for confession with Father Brendan Fitzpatrick.

He starts: "Bless me, Father, for I have sinned. It's been six weeks since my last confession."

The priest then says: "Begin telling God your sins, my son."

"I had sex with this girl, Father."

He questions the young man: "And... ah... how many times?"

"Ah...six nights... I think, Father."

"Then to obtain absolution, you have to tell me the lass's name."

He hesitates."No , Father, I think I'd rather not say."

"As I have said, I won't absolve you unless you give her name."

"No, Father, I can't say. I need to protect her reputation and shame."

"Rubbish! I must emphasise to you the importance of telling me this girl's name."

"Sorry, Father", he insists.

"Right then! Hah-hah! Was it Jane Shorter?"

"Father, please, don't press me for her name".

"Blessed Jesus! What is this girl's name!"

"But, Father, please..."

"Okay then... Hah-hah! Was it Julie-Anne Baxter?"

Saddened, he sobs, "Please, Father!"

"By the Holy Ghost! Was it Kathie Shah?"

"No, Father... just bless me!"

"Nothing? Right... I'll not absolve your sins! I dismiss you!"

Banished, Steve walks from the church, his head hanging, dragging his feet.

Outside, two other young Aussies are standing there."How did it go?" one of them asks.

Steve smiles broadly. "Great! I got three more names!"

Tony Crafter with:
An Aussie visiting his English aunt, was offered a cup of tea. She boasted, "In THIS country, we drink three sorts of tea. There's China tea, which is 90% odour and 10% body; then there's Indian tea which is 90% body and 10% odour, and finally there's English tea, which is 50-50 and by far the most popular."


"I find that fascinating, aunt Delphine," he said. "We're such tea fans in Aussie too! We've also got three sorts. There's F.A.R. tea, which is 90% odor and 10% body...green S.H.I. tea, which is 90% body and 10% odour, and finally there's 'Red Bush' C.U.N. tea which is, I think, 50-50...and is, in honesty, by far the most popular!"

Meyran Kraus with:
'Spoiler' summarized (quoted clip taken from the Wikipedia site)

A spoiler is a summary or description of a narrative (or part of a narrative) that relates plot elements not revealed early in the narrative itself. Moreover, because enjoyment of the plot sometimes depends solely on dramatic tension and suspense, this early revelation of plot elements can "spoil" the enjoyment that some consumers of the narrative would otherwise have experienced.

In recent years, spoilers have mostly appeared on specialist Internet sites and in newsgroup postings. In these cases, the spoilers are mostly directed at film endings. Usually the spoiling information is preceded by a warning, or the spoiler has to be highlighted before it can be visibly read on the Web page. But in recent years these warnings have been omitted, and some unwitting readers have had movies they were looking forward to watching spoiled.


Seeing that plenty of people noted most of these at one time or another, I present an overview of twelve major movie details so deeply rooted in pop culture, they're not even spoilers anymore:

12. The wearied Crying Game lady is really a man.
11. Luke is Darth Vader's son and Princess Leia's brother.
10. Evil crime-lord Kaiser Soze is in fact a timid cripple played by Kevin Spacey.
9. 'Rosebud' is a long-forgotten wooden sled.
8. Brad Pitt and the tentative narrator in Fight Club were the same person the entire time.
7. It is revealed that Planet of the Apes is Earth.
6. The parcel in Seven contains Gwyneth Paltrow's head.
5. Femme fatale Sharon Stone is Basic Instinct's violent murderer.
4. An eerie Norman Bates is Psycho's moody murderer (pretending to be his own mom).
3. Soylent Green is made of people!
2. Bruce Willis is wearing a piece in The 6th Sense. Oh, and he is a ghost, too.
1. The first Matrix movie was just as puerile and unoriginal as its sequels.
