Four idiot jokes! Two are allegedly true!

1. Advice for idiots from page 16 of the HP "Environmental, Healthy & Safety Handbook for employees:

"Blink your eyelids periodically to lubricate your eyes.

2. My neighbour works in the operations department in the central office of a large bank. Employees in the field

call him when they have problems with their computers. One night he got a call from a woman in one of the

branch banks who had this question: "I've got smoke coming from the back of my terminal. Do you guys have a

fire downtown?"

3. My daughter went to a local Taco Bell and ordered a taco. She asked the person behind the counter for

"minimal lettuce." He said he was sorry, but they only had iceberg.

4. Police interrogated a suspect by placing a metal colander on his head and connected it with wires to a

photocopying machine. The message, "he is lying" was placed in the copier, and police pressed the copy

button each time they thought the suspect was lying. Believing the "lie detector" was working, the suspect

confessed.

There was a program on the TV that showed a criminal saying "You could not have my fingerprints because I was wearing gloves when I broke in" the fact it was being filmed and taped did not faze him.

Hi Huggs, yes think is true saw two American policemen tell this story on TV - needless to say think it was on an edition of 'America's most stupid crooks' or something xx

Hi undine, hee hee hee. It would have to be America! I can't imagine them getting away with it in this country. Wouldn't it be great if that was all it took to get a confession from a criminal!! I wonder if its posted on you tube or something? I love it anyway, no matter where it comes from. Take care, hugs xx

Hi Mick, Yes, that's my favourite one as well. According to undine that one is true. I can just picture the scene in a police interrogation room and some hapless criminal believing it all.! I am still laughing at that one. Take care, hugs xx
