Happy Thursday

One day before P.O.E.T.S Day

Remember Elf & Safety

I told my girlfriend I had a job in a bowling alley. She said 'Tenpin?' I said, 'No, permanent.'

I went in to a pet shop. I said, 'Can I buy a goldfish?' The guy said, 'Do you want an aquarium?' I said, 'I don't care what star sign it is.'

I went to the local video shop and I said, 'Can I take out The Elephant Man?' He said, 'He's not your type.' I said, 'Can I borrow Batman Forever?' He said, 'No, you'll have to bring it back tomorrow.'

I went to buy a watch, and the man in the shop said, 'Analogue.' I said, 'No, just a watch.'

I went into a shop and I said, 'Can someone sell me a kettle.' The bloke said, 'Kenwood?' I said, 'Where is he then?'

I met this bloke with a didgeridoo and he was playing Dancing Queen on it. I thought: 'That's Aboriginal.'

I bought some Armageddon cheese today, and it said on the packet. 'Best Before End'

I was stealing things in the supermarket today while balanced on the shoulders of a couple of vampires. I was

charged with shoplifting on two counts.

I bought a train ticket to France and the ticket seller said, 'Eurostar?' I said, 'Well I've been on telly but I'm no Elvis Presley.'

I phoned the local gym and I asked if they could teach me how to do the splits. He said, 'How flexible are you?' I said, 'I can't make Tuesdays or Thursdays.'

I went to the doctor and I said to him, 'I'm frightened of lapels.' He said, 'You've got cholera.'

I met the bloke who invented crosswords today. I can't remember his name, it's P something T something R.Monkey with banana and tin opener

I was reading this book today, 'The History Of Glue.' I couldn't put it down.

I was in the jungle and there was this monkey with a tin opener. I said, 'You don't need a tin opener to peel a banana.' He said, 'No, this is for the custard.'

I told my mum that I'd opened a theatre. She said, 'Are you having me on?' I said, 'Well I'll give you an audition, but I'm not promising you anything.'

I visited the offices of the RSPCA today. It's tiny: you couldn't swing a cat in there.

There are beavers in the bathroom

swimming circles in the tub

where the beavers have decided

to convene their swimming club.

In their little beaver Speedos

and their beaver bathing caps,

they've been splashing rather happily

while practicing their laps.

They've been studying the butterfly,

the backstroke and the crawl,

and it's obvious they like it

and they're having quite a ball.

For we hear them all the time

but we don't see them anymore,

ever since they built a beaver dam

behind the bathroom door.

We planted some beans in our garden in class,

along with some peppers and pumpkins and grass.

We planted them neatly in straight little rows.

But Jessica Jean stuck her bean up her nose.

She did it discreetly, not making a peep.

She pushed with her pinky and poked it in deep,

then kept it a secret, so no one would know.

But, meanwhile, her bean was beginning to grow.

It popped out a leaf on the tiniest stalk,

that quickly unfolded and caused her to squawk,

then rapidly blossommed and grew to a vine,

while Jessica Jean was beginning to whine.

It quickly expanded to cover her lips.

It grew on her shoulders, her elbows and hips.

It bloomed on her body and covered her clothes,

completely encasing her down to her toes.

It looped on her ankles, engulfing her feet,

cocooning her knees and obscuring her seat,

concealing her up past the top of her chest,

her arms and her hands, and then all of the rest.

And that was the last that has ever been seen,

or heard of the student named Jessica Jean.

So always remember to plant them in rows,

and never, don't ever, put beans in your nose.

On their 50th wedding anniversary and during the dinner celebrating it, Byron was asked to give his friends a brief account of the benefits of a marriage of such long duration.

'Tell us Byron, just what is it you have learned from all those wonderful years with your wife?'

Byron responds, 'Well, I've learned that marriage is the best teacher of all. It teaches you loyalty, forbearance, meekness, self-restraint, forgiveness and a great many other qualities you wouldn't have needed if you'd stayed single.'

This lorry full of tortoises collided with a van full of terrapins. It was a turtle disaster.

I phoned the local ramblers club today, but the bloke who answered just went on and on.

This policeman came up to me with a pencil and a piece of very thin paper. He said, 'I want you to trace someone for me.'

I phoned the local builders today, I said to them, 'Can I have a skip outside my house?' He said, 'I'm not stopping you!'

The recruitment consultant asked me, 'What do you think of voluntary work?' I said, 'I wouldn't do it if you paid me.'

This cowboy walks in to a German car showroom and he says, 'Audi!'

I was at a Garden Centre and I asked for something herbie. They gave me a Volkswagen with no driver.


O.K. jokes, but you will need to deliver them well to be a good stand-up comedian

Batman came up to me and he hit me over the head with a vase and he went T'PAU! I said, 'Don't you mean KAPOW??' He said, 'No, I've got china in my hand.'

My mate is in love with two schoolbags. He's bisatchel.

I fancied a game of darts with my mate. He said, 'Nearest the bull goes first.' He went, 'Baah' and I went 'Moo'. He said, 'You're closest.'

: "I needed a password eight characters long so I picked Snow White and the Seven Dwarves."

"Crime in multi-storey car parks. That is wrong on so many different levels."

"People say 'I'm taking it one day at a time'. You know what? So is everybody. That's how time works."

"Drive-Thru McDonalds was more expensive than I thought... once you've hired the car..."

: "I was playing chess with my friend and he said, 'Let's make this interesting'. So we stopped playing chess."

: "My mother told me, you don't have to put anything in your mouth you don't want to. Then she made me eat broccoli, which felt like double standards."

: "I was in a band which we called The Prevention, because we hoped people would say we were better than The Cure."

: "I admire these phone hackers. I think they have a lot of patience. I can't even be bothered to check my OWN voicemails."

1) In a recent poll held in the USA, American men and women were asked if they would marry the same person if they had it to do all over again.

80% of the men responded that they would marry the same woman.

Interestingly, only 50% of the women responded that they would marry the same man. Oh dear!

(2) Gamophobia is the fear of marriage.

(3) 'When women hold off from marrying men, we call it independence. When men hold off from marrying women, we call it fear of commitment.' -
