"I was testing the keyboard for dribble resistance.

"Actually I am doing a "Stress Level Elimination Exercise Plan" (SLEEP) I learned it at the last mandatory business seminar you sent me on, sir.

"I was merely doing a specific yoga-concentration exercise to relieve work-related stress."

"Darn! Why'd you interrupt me? I'd almost figured out a solution to our biggest problem."

"The coffee machine's broken..."

"Ok... there's been a terrible error. Someone seems to have put the decaf coffee in the wrong pot."

It is an incentive to show up.

It reduces anxiety and stress.

It minimises unhappy complaints about low pay.

It cuts down on time off because you can be at work with a hangover.

Employees tell management what they think, not what management wants to hear.

It helps save on heating costs in the wintertime.

It encourages carpooling.

It eliminates vacations because people would rather come to work.

It makes the cafeteria's food taste that much better.

Bosses are much more likely to hand out pay rises if they're wasted.

Salary negotiations are much more profitable.

Suddenly, burping during a meeting isn't so embarrassing and there is no piqued tut-tutting, only giggling.

Employees work later since there is no longer the need to relax in a bar.

It is highly uplifting and just makes everyone more happy and open with their ideas.

Everyone agrees that work is better after they have had a couple of drinks.

It'd eliminate the need for staff to get squiffy in their lunch break.

It increases the odds of seeing your boss naked.

The janitor's closet will finally have a use.

Employees don't need to sober up on coffee.

Sitting on the copy machine will no longer be viewed as "gross."

Determine which guest hates cats and sit on that person's lap during the evening. The guest won't
dare push you off, and might even call you 'nice kitty.' If you can arrange to have cat food on your
breath, then so much the better.

Always accompany guests to the bathroom. It isn't necessary to do anything. Just sit and stare.

If you need to throw up, get into a chair quickly. If you cannot manage this in time, get on to an
Oriental rug, or shag-pile carpet.

For guests who say 'I love kitties', be ready with aloof disdain, claws applied to tights or stockings,
or a nip on an ankle.

Don't allow closed doors in any room.


To get one open, just stand on the hind legs for this trick : to hammer with one's forepaws.

Once a door is opened for you, it is not necessary to actually use it. You can change your mind.
It is cool.

If one human is busy and another is not, sit with the busy one.

For ladies knitting, first curl comfortably into the cosiest lap, and pretend to take a quiet nap.
Then you can attack: move to reach out to give the aggravating needle a quick slap. That's what
she calls a 'drop stitch.' She'll try to distract you. Ignore it.

Warning: Do get enough sleep during each day. Save energy for sashaying out to play at night...

They're joined by a chap from St. Ives who's fleeing his wives, a boatman who helps them cross a river with a wolf, a sheep and a cabbage, two dodgy guys who seem identical but are not twins and a bankrupt guy pushing his car to a hotel. Said hotel has two doors guarded by a liar and a truth-sayer, but the gang simply pays them fifteen cents in two coins (one not a nickel). The hotel guards happily go in too and, after meeting some dwarf holding an umbrella in the elevator, the ten guys all rest easily in the nine-room hotel.

But two days later, the hunter realizes that place was cursed. The dwarf is hanged over a puddle of water in a big, empty room; the barman shoots himself after eating an albatross; the boatman dies in an empty field near an unopened package and the others die after drinking punch with poisoned ice cubes from a four-gallon jug.

The hunter decided to get back to his trip and, after shooting a bear that's eating two goldfish named Romeo and Juliet, he carries it ten miles north back to his house.

What color is the bear?



A priest, a ten-inch pianist and a bell-ringer's twin go into a bar. The barman, thinking it's a joke, gets rids of them by offering plane tickets he got from Watson and Holmes on a camping trip.

This jet then crashes after a blonde stewardess drops a case of crabs and the pilot is revealed to be a hunter with a gun who's molested by a bear. The priest finds himself on some island with a couple of native twins named Juan and Amal that threaten him with 'Death by Mau Mau'. Luckily, a magical genie appears and grants him three wishes.

The priest asks to go to Heaven and see the original Holy Scriptures. After finding it should have been 'celeb*r*ate', he declines a round of mini-golf with the Lord and wishes to go back to Earth and to form one filthy comedy group called The Aristocrats with a koala that eats bush and leaves, an old woman that can guess your age by feeling your nuts and the hunter (now with a bazooka) molested by a bear.

And just when the priest is about to get it on with a three-legged pig and some curtain rods full of shrimp, a stick of TNT blows them up. A mile away the mangled hunter, holding the TNT detonator, laughs victoriously, when a bear taps him on the shoulder and asks:

"You're not here to hunt now, are you?"


1st - Meyran Kraus with:
"Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth."

A virtual voyage in a battlefield's heart

That wealth at noon was quite a view
Here, in the field; how good to note
Each heather here prevailed and grew:
Great growth had formed a heavy coat.
Each youthful bird soared in the air,
Too smooth, too blithe and too naive.
That view may look too fine and fair,
Yet we once heard that looks deceive.
So, what faint thing can no one peep,
Beneath that view of peace and cheer,
Unheard-of, worn and wedged too deep,
Remaining faint too long, for years?
Great fear once ailed that stretch of land,
All through that time of pained contention;
Death governed it when legions grand
Did rotten things we wouldn't mention.
Respected war-gods clenched their teeth,
Each striving to maintain their might;
Steel sabers shot out of their sheaths,
So fiercely keen to clinch those fights;
But clever Earth, then scorched and dried,
Yearned to correct that dream we shattered;
A lot of troops that toiled there died,
But to that earth, it barely mattered:
Red poppies grow where brothers fought
And blades of grass where bodies fell.
Hate, pain and grievance were for naught,
Around that growth where pine trees dwell.
Men, blood-lust and their cannon's flare
Leave no vague trace out here, it seems,
In one vast piece of Heaven, where
No force but Nature reigned supreme.
Cool winds invade all that survived
On heavy vines that brave that chill.
Life carried on - it wants to thrive,
Now that the ground has had its fill.

Rudyard Kipling

You may talk o' gin and beer
When you're quartered safe out 'ere,
An' you're sent to penny-fights an' Aldershot it;
But when it comes to slaughter
You will do your work on water,
An' you'll lick the bloomin' boots of 'im that's got it.
Now in Injia's sunny clime,
Where I used to spend my time
A-servin' of 'Er Majesty the Queen,
Of all them blackfaced crew
The finest man I knew
Was our regimental bhisti, Gunga Din.
He was "Din! Din! Din!
"You limpin' lump o' brick-dust, Gunga Din!
"Hi! Slippy hitherao!
"Water, get it! Panee lao
"You squidgy-nosed old idol, Gunga Din."

The uniform 'e wore
Was nothin' much before,
An' rather less than 'arf o' that be'ind,
For a piece o' twisty rag
An' a goatskin water-bag
Was all the field-equipment 'e could find.
When the sweatin' troop-train lay
In a sidin' through the day,
Where the 'eat would make your bloomin' eyebrows crawl,
We shouted " Harry By!"
Till our throats were bricky-dry,
Then we wopped 'im 'cause 'e couldn't serve us all.
It was "Din! Din! Din!
"You 'eathen, where the mischief 'ave you been?
"You put some juldee in it
"Or I'll marrow you this minute
"If you don't fill up my helmet, Gunga Din!"

'E would dot an' carry one
Till the longest day was done;
An' 'e didn't seem to know the use o' fear.
If we charged or broke or cut,
You could bet your bloomin' nut,
'E'd be waitin' fifty paces right flank rear.
With 'is mussick' on 'is back,
'E would skip with our attack,
An' watch us till the bugles made "Retire,"
An' for all 'is dirty 'ide
'E was white, clear white, inside
When 'e went to tend the wounded under fire!
It was "Din! Din! Din!"
With the bullets kickin' dust-spots on the green
When the cartridges ran out,
You could hear the front-ranks shout,
"Hi! ammunition-mules an' Gunga Din!"

I sha'n't forgit the night
When I dropped be'ind the fight
With a bullet where my belt-plate should 'a' been.
I was chokin' mad with thirst,
An' the man that spied me first
Was our good old grinnin', gruntin' Gunga Din.
'E lifted up my 'ead,
An' he plugged me where I bled,
An' 'e guv me 'arf-a-pint o' water green.
It was crawlin' and it stunk,
But of all the drinks I've drunk,
I'm gratefullest to one from Gunga Din.
It was "Din! Din! Din!
"'Ere's a beggar with a bullet through 'is spleen"
"'E's chawin' up the ground,
"An' 'e's kickin' all around:
"For Gawd's sake git the water, Gunga Din!

'E carried me away
To where a dooli lay,
An' a bullet come an' drilled the beggar clean.
'E put me safe inside,
An' just before 'e died,
"I 'ope you liked your drink" sez Gunga Din.
So I'll meet 'im later on
At the place where 'e is gone
Where it's always double drill and no canteen.
'E'll be squattin' on the coals
Givin' drink to poor damned souls,
An' I'll get a swig in hell from Gunga Din!
Yes, Din! Din! Din!
You Lazarushian-leather Gunga Din!
Though I've belted you and flayed you,
By the livin' Gawd that made you,
You're a better man than I am, Gunga Din!



In a street down Wapping way
There's a greasy spoon cafe
And a shop that smells of cat's pee and pot-pourri,
An' a gaudy bistro bar,
But most popular by far,
Is the one 'n' only Gunga Din Tandoori.
It's the local restaurant
Of the Wapping bon vivants,
And fancy folk who want food 'ot 'n' spicy,
But the biggest Gunga fan
Is me best pal, 'Hungry' Dan,
Who'd eat as much grub there as 'e could cram in.
'E'd tweet: "I love the Din!
"The curry's pukka at the Gunga Din!
"Every meal's a winner,
"It's why I eat me dinner,
"Lunch and brekky right 'ere at the Gunga Din!"

Me, I don't like Indian fare
The curry curls me 'air!
I need cuisine to be a little weaker,
Like bully beef or walnut whips,
An' deep-fried cod 'n' chips,
No, I wouldn't know a tarka from a tikka.
And would you kindly tell me,
Where's the fun in 'Delhi belly'?
And in gobbling muck that turns yer entrails raw?
I got better things to do
Than spend all day in the loo,
I prefer to slit me wrists or go to war!
I truly wouldn't win,
Dinin' at the Gunga Din,
Unlike Dan who, if 'e could, would move right in!

One July, when I went by,
From the corner of me eye,
Through the tinted window of the Gunga Din,
I saw diners eating dishes
That looked downright suspicious,
And a pretty Indian waitress, young and slim,
With shiny, long black 'air,
An' a sari... well I swear,
I fell deep in love with 'er there on the spot!
Me 'eart urged, "Go in and see 'er!"
While me 'ead yelled, "Yes I concur,"
But me stomach begged, "Don't order nothin' hot!"
So I duly blundered in
To the deep recesses of the Gunga Din...
With a smile as bright as sun
She said, "Hi! Table for one?"
I saw Dan and quickly said, "No... I'm with 'im!"
When I went to Hungry Dan,
'E jeered, "Hey; you ain't a fan
Of curry, 'fact you hate it, bro!" 'e grinned.

"Yeah, I know," I said,
"But me 'eart 'as ruled me 'ead,
"And I got the 'ots for that girl in the sari!"
'E laughed, "Well, join the queue!
"Cause it ain't only you;
"I want 'er badly too - 'er name is Kari;
"Aw, I'm nuts about 'er, man,
"I'm 'er numero uno fan;
"Why'd you think I bleedin eat 'ere every day!"
I grunted, "Well, I'm 'ere
"So I gotta buy a beer."
Then I quizzed 'im on what 'e thought I could eat.
"Well," 'e grinned, "don't worry,
"I know a mild but truly unique curry;
"You must try a vindaloo,
"The mutton one'll do,
"Kari's coming, make yer mind up - go on, 'urry!"

Well, the food resembled gruel
With a touch o' nuclear fuel,
But it tasted what uranium would taste like,
I gurgled, glugged and coughed
While Dan laughed 'is 'ead off.
Me windpipe felt like it was set alight,
Me nose was runnin', weepin'
Dan was laughing, leapin',
'E said, "I ain't 'ad so much fun in just one night.
And there was I, poor soul,
Belly filled with red-'ot coals,
And the bleedin' diners laughin' at me plight
But Kari saw me strife
And gi' me the kiss of life,
Double-quick; whew! Made me high! I turned to goo.
And I'll tell you what ensued:
The best man won... now Kari is me wife!

Don't know why there's no sun up in the sky
Stormy weather
Since my man and I ain't together,
Keeps rainin' all the time

Life is bare, gloom and mis'ry everywhere
Stormy weather
Just can't get my poorself together,
I'm weary all the time
So weary all the time
When he went away the blues walked in and met me.
If he stays away old rockin' chair will get me.

All I do is pray the Lord above will let me walk in the sun once more.
Can't go on, ev'ry thing I had is gone
Stormy weather
Since my man and I ain't together,
Keeps rainin' all the time.



Yes, how many times
Must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?

Wild intensity,
A gusty savage killer
Knocked down a tree.
One girl lost her weak mother.

Yes, how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?

I ache, a miracle tiny,
A little meal, I hunger.
A nightmare jolts the moment, I worry.
Wretched smell, grey matter.

Yes, how many deaths
Will it take till he knows
That too many people have died?

I regret the mortality,
A long torment
Altering the reality.
World's martyred end.

The answer my friend
Is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.

Small fruit tree after rain

Look at that small fruit tree after the rain:
It is full of raindrops and it swings them,
And magic luxury of it branches
Sparkles in the sunlight.

But if the sun is hidden, just for a while
All that magic disappears
It is again, as it was before,
Ordinary, poor small tree.=
A Tear

If a dear, tacit girl smiles at me,
tears of happiness you'll see.
Flickering pearls transit a face
in a shining light of her astral eye.

If now fatal minx flirts with other artful stud
just wait, don't gird, perhaps I'll start to blub .
Thus, remains humid, as burr-ruined skin
of a hot, irate, old man.

Forrest Gump Goes to Heaven (old joke)

The day finally arrives: Forrest Gump dies and goes to Heaven. The Pearly Gates are closed, and Forest approaches the gatekeeper, Saint Peter.

Saint Peter says, "Well, Forrest, it’s certainly good to see you. We have heard so much about you. I must inform you that the place is filling up fast, and we’re administering an entrance examination for everyone. This test is fairly short, but you need to pass before you can get into Heaven."

Forrest responds, "It shore is good to be here, Saint Peter. I was looking forward to this. Nobody ever told me about any entrance exam. Shore hope the test ain’t too hard, 'cos life was a big enough test as it was."

Saint Peter goes on, "I know Forrest. But, the test I have for you isn't difficult. It's only a few questions. Here is the first: What days of the week begin with the letter ‘T’? Then, secondly, how many seconds are there in a year? And, third, what is the first name of God?"

Forrest goes away to think the questions over. He returns the next day and goes up to Saint Peter to try to answer the exam questions.

Saint Peter waves him up and asks, "Now that you have had a chance to think the questions over, can you tell me your answers?"

Forrest replies, "Well, the first one - How many days of the week begin with ‘T’? Shucks, that one’s simple; that would be two: Today and Tomorrow!"
Saint Peter's eyes are wide open as he exclaims, "Forrest! That's not quite what I am thinking of, though you do have a point. I admit I was not specific, so I agree to go ahead and give you credit for the statement."

"How about the next one?" says Saint Peter. "Did you figure out how many seconds there are in a year?"

"Hey, that was a lot harder," notes Forrest softly, "But, I thunk and thunk about the question myself, and I guess the answer can only be twelve."

Saint Peter stifles a guffaw, "Twelve! Twelve! Forrest, how in Heaven's name does one get twelve seconds in a year?"

In a moment, Forrest offers, "Oh, you see, it's gotta be twelve: January second, February second, March second, April second, May second...."

"Hold it, stop right there!" Saint Peter hushes Forrest. "I see where you're going. I get the scope of the point, and although it isn't quite the textbook answer, I'll give you credit for that one too."

"Let's go on to the next and final question," says Saint Peter, "Can you tell me the first name of God?"

Forrest does not hesitate, "Well shore, I know God's first name. That's obvious. Everybody probly knows - it's Howard."

"Howard?" asks Saint Peter. "So, tell me, what makes you think it's 'Howard'?"

Forest states, "See, it's in the Prayer."

"Prayer?" asks Saint Peter, "What prayer?"

"The Lord's Prayer," Forrest points out, "Our Father, Who art in Heaven, Howard be thy name..."

The gate opens.
