On her first night in an unusual hotel, the woman guest made sure she would know the means of escaping any possible fires.

On inspecting the corridors, she noticed what looked to be a fire-door at the end of a hallway, but when she opened it she unexpectedly saw a man having a bath!"

“Oh, I am so very sorry,” she said. “I’m looking for the fire escape.”

The man pointed to a blue door at the other end of the corridor. But as she approached it, she saw that the stark-naked man was following her – and then he started pursuing her to the fire escape!

She quickly ran down the steps, but just as she reached the bottom, a wet hand grabbed her shoulder...

“Er, where did you say that fire was?” he asked.


One Saturday night a wife came home late after a few too many drinks. Not wishing to wake her husband, she quietly ascended the stairs, opened their bedroom door and crept in.

To her horror, she saw four legs protruding from under the blanket instead of the expected two! In a fit of jealous rage she picked up a baseball bat and started whacking the shapes under the blanket as hard as she could. When she'd finished, she ran hotfoot to the kitchen to pour herself a large Scotch.

But, when she went in, she saw her husband was there, reading a newspaper.

"Hiya, honey!" he said. "Guess what? Your parents have come to visit, so I let them stay in our bedroom. Hope you said hello to them!”

3rd - Ellie Dent with:
John was sitting outside his local pub one afternoon, enjoying a nice pint and generally feeling content, when a nun turned up at his table and started to decry the evils of drink.

'You should be ashamed young man! Drinking is a Sin! Wake up! Alcohol is like a killer, the blood of the Devil!'

John got irritated, and while put out, went on the offensive.

'But however do YOU, a plain nun, know this information, Sister?'

'Mother Superior told me.'

'But look, have you never, ever had even a little drink? How can you be certain that what you are saying is actually true?'


'Of course not! I really never have taken unholy alcohol myself.'

John said, 'Let me buy you a drink. Then afterwards, if you still believe it's truly evil, I will give up the drink for life.'

'How could I, a Nun, sit outside a pub drinking?!'

John answered, 'Don't worry, I'll get the barman to put it in a teacup. No one needs to know.'

The Nun reluctantly agreed, so John went in to see the bar manager again.

'Another pint for me, and a double vodka on the rocks.' And then lowering his voice he said, 'Would you see that the vodka is put in a tea cup?'

'Oh no! It's not the b****y Nun again, is it?'

"Oh yes, my lady (long nods). No accident - unsound conduct. Why? Oh, we had this huge, huge argument over Reeva's cheating. She hid behind the toilet door (Snort!).

Alyssa had remained in a coma for months.

The nurses giving her a bed bath had noticed there was a very small response on the monitor while they were washing her private area. They tried again, and sure enough, there was definitely a movement.

One went to Alyssa's husband and reported what happened, telling him, "Well, as goofy as this sounds, my colleagues suspect a little oral sex will do the trick and bring her out of the coma early."

He was rather skeptical, but they assured him that they would close the curtain for privacy. He finally agreed and went in to Alyssa's room.

After just a few minutes, her monitor flat lined; no pulse, no heart rate. The nurses ran back into the room. "What happened!?" they yelped.

The husband said, "I'm not really sure... maybe she choked."


"Of course I won't laugh,” chided the nurse. "I'm a professional, sir. Fact is, in twenty years I have never laughed at a patient."

"Okay then," answered Henry shyly, and he proceeded to drop his trousers, revealing just about the tiniest male part which frankly the nurse had ever seen. In length and width, it was hardly bigger than a AAA battery.

Unable to control herself, the nurse tried hard to stifle a laugh, but it came anyway. Feeling bad that she had laughed harshly at the man's part, she composed herself as well as she could.

"Excuse me, I am so sorry," she admitted contritely. "I don't know what came over me. On my honour as a nurse and as a lady, I promise it won't happen again. Now, tell me, what seems to be the problem?"

"It's swollen," Henry replied meekly.

She ran out of the room.

Here's a genius way to handle telemarketers, popularized by a famous prank:

TELEMARKETER: Mr. Smith, my name's John. I want to tell you about our new lotion...

YOU: Hold on, sir. This is Detective Madsen. How do you know Mr. Smith?

TELEMARKETER: I don't, I just called to...

YOU: You just called a murder scene. Mr. Smith has been brutally shot thirty times and you're the first person calling here.

TELEMARKETER: Let me get my supervisor...

YOU: You're not going anywhere. Unless you want to be locked up for life, you better tell me the truth!

[At this point, extract as much information as possible in an increasingly wary tone, then end with:]

YOU: Well, I ain't buying your story. But we traced your call and a vehicle will pick you up for a thorough interrogation. Have a nice day. *CLICK*

Benefits: Other than scaring the idiot half to death, your number will probably be erased from the call list... Corpses don't need lotions.


Need another nifty trick to handle annoying telemarketers? Here's a very cool one which was popularized by Seinfeld:

TELEMARKETER: Mr. Smith? Hi there, I'm Darren and I want to tell you all about our brand new robotic scissors. Perhaps you have a couple of minutes?

YOU: Actually, Darren, now is not a very good time for me, but I definitely would like to hear more about those intriguing scissors. So just tell me your home number and I'll call you later.

TELEMARKETER: Well, sorry, I can't do that. We don't tend to give people our home numbers here, Mr. Smith.

YOU: Oh right, because you wouldn't want strangers calling you all the time.

TELEMARKETER: Well, yeah, that's right.

YOU: My sentiments exactly. *CLICK*

Benefits: Mainly the joy of fiendishly outsmarting that stupid crap-peddler. But if you're not into such ironic subtleties, you can always just buy an air horn and keep it by the phone. That works too.

Spring Song
Robert Louis Stevenson

The air was full of sun and birds,
The fresh air sparkled clearly.
Remembrance wakened in my heart
And I knew I loved her dearly.

The fallows and the leafless trees
And all my spirit tingled.
My earliest thought of love, and Spring's
First puff of perfume mingled.

In my still heart the thoughts awoke,
Came lone by lone together –
Say, birds and Sun and Spring, is Love
A mere affair of weather?


Remembering My Lost Half

A while had passed, yet I recall
How this fool promptly fell for her -
But dared not fight the plunge at all,
For mindless links are merrier.
And no grief, nor a twist of fate,
May snuff the avid spark worth saving
And like some evil sun negate
An ocean of elated craving:
My lips burn as I feel that kiss
Where fresher buds grew all around;
I'd sense my lady there, in bliss,
On these serene and pretty grounds.

Oh, flew in from Miami Beach BOAC.
Didn't get to bed last night
On the way the paper bag was on my knee
Man I had a dreadful flight
I'm back in the USSR
You don't know how lucky you are boy
Back in the USSR

Been away so long I hardly knew the place
Gee it's good to be back home
Leave it till tomorrow to unpack my case
Honey disconnect the phone
I'm back in the USSR
You don't know how lucky you are boy
Back in the US...
Back in the US...
Back in the USSR

Well the Ukraine girls really knock me out
They leave the West behind
And Moscow girls make me sing and shout
That Georgia's always on my mind

(musical break)

Yeah I'm back in the USSR
You don't know how lucky you are boys
Back in the USSR

Well the Ukraine girls really knock me out
They leave the West behind
And Moscow girls make me sing and shout
That Georgia's always on my mind

Oh, show me round your snow-peaked mountains way down south
Take me to your daddy's farm
Let me hear your balalaika's ringing out
Come and keep your comrade warm
I'm back in the USSR
Hey you don't know how lucky you are boys
Back in the USSR


V. Putin

Yeah, Russia's where it's happening we hold the power
So why did you all break away?
I am wholly certain, yeah that come the hour
You'll be back with us one day
So bring back the USSR
We'll all grow much stronger by far, man!
I'm backing the USSR

You got your independence but what have you done?
You're like chickens with no heads
You pygmies don't know how a country should be run
Don't know how it should be led
Get backin' my USSR
You'll go much higher by far, da!
Backing my US...
Backin' my US...
Backin' the USSR

Well, weak Ukraine will be mine some day
Crimea, it has gone
Okay folk, denounce your Western ways
Get back to where you once belonged.

(vodka break)

Yeah, I'm talking USSR
I'm talkin' a coup d'etat, man
I'm backin' the USSR

Oh, one by one I'll take my countries back
T'was always my design
You'll know okay the moment I attack
And I shall make you my-my-mine!

Now, don't be reckless, don't resist for goodness sake
I can break you with one hand
Take a moment to consider what's at stake
Head home to the Motherland
Go back to the USSR
Home to the land of your ma-ma!
I'm backin' the USSR!

Absent Place-an April Day, Emily Dickinson

Absent Place-an April Day-
Daffodils a-blow
Homesick curiosity
To the Souls that snow-

Drift may block within it
Deeper than without-
Daffodil delight but
Him it duplicate-


Delicately bathed in paint,
All cold lookouts did wait.
Flowers bound up with duty shine
Fragrant, sappy, soft, sedate.

Outlined in birthday chiffon;
Dreamlike, whimsical.
Imitates a picky patch;
Lithe mobs botanical.

Tony Crafter with:
A farmer stopped at the local garage to have his truck repaired.

They weren't able to do it while he waited, but he said he didn't live far so he'd happily walk home.

He went into the hardware store en route and bought a bucket and a gallon of paint.

He then called in at the feed store and got a couple of chickens and a goose.

However, he now had the problem of how to carry all these purchases home.

While he was pondering it, an old lady approached him. 'Excuse me, can you tell me how to get to Juniper Lane?' she enquired.

The farmer said, 'Well, as a matter of fact my farm is very close to that lane. I'd walk you there but I'm struggling to carry this lot.'

The old lady suggested, 'Why not put the tin of paint in the bucket. Then carry the bucket in one hand, put a chicken under each arm and carry the goose in your other hand?'

'That sounds just fine,' he agreed and proceeded to walk her home.

On the way, he said, 'Let's take a short cut down this alley. We'll get there in no time.'

The old lady regarded him warily then said, 'I'm a lonely widow with no husband to defend me. How do I know that when we get into the alley you won't pin me against the wall and have your evil way with me?'

The farmer said, 'Hell, ma'am! I'm carrying a bucket, a gallon of paint, two chickens, and a goose. How could I possibly pin you against the wall and do those things?'

The old lady replied, 'Set the goose down, cover him with the bucket, put the paint on top of the bucket, and I'll hold the chickens.'

While taking a quick stroll in the countryside one Friday morning, two Irishmen, Callaghan and O'Toole, came upon an abandoned well.

Curious to know how deep it might be, O'Toole picked up a couple of small stones, threw them down the well and waited for the splash as they hit the bottom. But he heard nothing.

So Callaghan picked up a rock and hurled that down the well too. They waited a while, but still they heard nothing.

They decided that they would need something much larger and heavier, and after a hasty search of the surrounding countryside, they came upon an old wooden railway sleeper.

Summoning up every ounce of their combined strength, they managed to haul the heavy railway sleeper back to the well and together they propped it up and threw it down the hole. As they stood back waiting for the splash of it hitting the bottom, a goat suddenly darted between them and leapt straight into the open well.

"Huh? Did you see what oi just feckin' saw?" O'Toole croaked hoarsely.

"Oh, Holy Mother, oi think oi feckin' did," whispered a stunned Callaghan.

Both men were still recovering from the shock of what they had seen when a farmer appeared.

"Hi, have either of you seen a goat?" he asked.

"Oh brother, we certainly have!" exclaimed Callaghan. "A goat just came up and it leapt straight down dat feckin' well, so it did!"

"Ah, well that certainly wouldn't have been my goat," chuckled the farmer, "'cause mine was tied to a railway sleeper."

by Ogden Nash

Praise the spells and bless the charms,
I found April in my arms.
April golden, April cloudy,
Gracious, cruel, tender, rowdy;
April soft in flowered languor,
April cold with sudden anger,
Ever changing, ever true --
I love April, I love you.



Servile husband, once so stupid.
Gods sent April, arranged by Cupid.
April loggerhead, April fool,
Concerning verses of a golden rule;
When April is mushy and silly,
April charges my warm willy.
A verdict I'll regret and rue --
I hate April, wouldn't you?

Dharam Khalsa with:
May Day
(by Sarah Teasdale)

A delicate fabric of bird song
Floats in the air,
The smell of wet wild earth
Is everywhere.

Red small leaves of the maple
Are clenched like a hand,
Like girls at their first communion
The pear trees stand.

Oh I must pass nothing by
Without loving it much,
The raindrop try with my lips,
The grass with my touch;

For how can I be sure
I shall see again
The world on the first of May
Shining after the rain?


May had Vibrant Flowers
(Auntie Histamine)

The first daffodils,
Paperwhite narcissus,
The cherry-red tulips,
The daylily, night gladiolus.

The chrysanthemum,
Flowering magnolia,
The pink carnations,
The hyacinth, wisteria.

The evening primrose,
The daisies, strawflower,
The honeysuckle, lilac,
The dogwood, cornflower.

Bridesmaids' baby's breath,
Mimosa, heather, violet,
The alfalfa, amaryllis,
The aster, forget-me-not.
