A man was going up to bed, when his wife told him he'd left the light on in
the garden shed - she could see it from the bedroom window. But he said
that he hadn't been in the shed that day. He looked himself, and there
were people in the shed, stealing things.
He rang the police, but they told him that no one was in his area, so no
one was available to catch the thieves. He said OK, hung up, counted
to 30 and rang the police again.
"Hello. I just rang you a few seconds ago because there were people in my
shed? Well, you don't have to worry about them now, I've just shot them
Within five minutes there were half a dozen police cars in the area, an
Armed Response unit, the works. Of course, they caught the burglars
red-handed. One of the policeman said to this man, "I thought you said
you'd shot them!"
He replied, "I thought you said there were no cops available!"
Het formule 1 team van Ferrari heeft de gehele Pit-crew
ontslagen en heeft een groep werkloze Antilliaanse jongeren
aangenomen uit Amsterdam.
Deze beslissing nam het team na het zien van een documentaire
van werkloze jongeren in Amsterdam die binnen 4 seconden de
wielen onder een auto konden halen zonder het juiste gereedschap.
Ferrari meende een tactische zet te doen, aangezien de meeste
races worden gewonnen en verloren in de pits.
Ondanks deze zet ontdekte het team toch een probleem:
de jongeren verwisselden niet alleen de wielen in minder dan 4
seconden, tevens zagen zij de kans om in minder dan 10 seconden
de auto opnieuw te spuiten en te verkopen aan het Mclaren team.

There seems to be a fully stocked bar, so the men all ask for a
martini. In short order, the bartender serves up 4 iced martinis -- and
says, "That'll be 10 cents each, please."
They can't believe their good luck.
They pay the 40 cents, finish their martinis, and order another round.
Again, four excellent martinis are produced with the bartender again
saying, "That's 40 more cents, please."
They pay the 40 cents, but their curiosity is more than they can stand.
They've each had two martinis and so far they've spent less than a dollar.
Finally one of the men couldn't stand it any longer and asks the
bartender "How can you afford to serve martinis as good as these for a
"Here's my story. I'm a retired tailor from Brooklyn, and I always
wanted to own a bar. Last year I hit the lottery for $25 million and
decided to open this place. Every drink costs a dime, wine, liquor,
beer, all the same."
"Wow. That's quite a story" says one of the men.
The four of them sipped at their martinis and couldn't help but notice
three other guys at the end of the bar
who didn't have a drink in front of them, and hadn't ordered anything
the whole time they were there.
One man gestures at the three at the end of the bar without drinks and
asks the bartender, "What's with them?"
The bartender says, "They're from Florida, they're waiting for happy hour."

Exercise for Seniors
For those who are getting along in years, here is a little secret for
building arm and shoulder muscles. You might want to adopt this regimen!
Three days a week works well.
Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of
room at each side. With a 5-lb. potato sack in each hand, extend your
arms straight out from your sides, and hold them there as long as you
can. Try to reach a full minute, then relax. Each day, you'll find that
you can hold this position for just a bit longer.
After a few weeks, move up to 10-lb. potato sacks and then 50-lb. potato
sacks, and eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb. potato
sack in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.
After you feel confident at that level, start putting a couple of
potatoes in each of the sacks, but be careful not to overdo it.
An Army chaplain, walking through a notorious section of town, saw a
soldier exiting a known house of prostitution. The soldier paused on the
sidewalk and gestured with his right hand in a manner familiar to the
good Catholic chaplain.
The chaplain promptly approached the errant soldier, saying, "I'm sorry
to see a good Catholic lad like you, coming out of a place like that."
"Well, padre, I'm not Catholic," answered the GI.
"But I clearly saw you cross yourself as you came out of there."

Een afschuwelijk ongeval op de golfbaan. Een man slaat af, de bal schengt en raakt zijn echtgenote vol op het hoofd. Dood.
De officier van justitie heeft geluiden opgevangen over een ernstig verstoorde relatie tussen die twee en vermoedt opzet. Hij gelast lijkschouwing. De patholoog-anatoom onderzoekt het lichaam. De verwonding aan de schedel is snel geconstateerd. Bij nader onderzoek vindt hij echter ook een golfbal in de anus. Daarmee geconfronteerd verklaart de verdachte: dat is mijn provisional.
