Bruce Junior was at school one morning in the outback

Bruce Junior was at school one morning in the outback and the teacher asked all the children what their fathers did for a living. All the typical answers came out: fireman, policeman, dunny salesman, chippy, Captain of Industry, bush pilot, etc., but Bruce Junior was being uncharacteristically quiet and so the teacher asked him about his father.

"My father is an exotic dancer in a very popular gay nightclub in Brisbane, and takes off all his clothes in front of other men.

Sometimes if the offer is really good, he'll go out with a man, have a few schooners or midis, eat a few pies with sauce, rent a cheap hotel room and let them sleep with him."

The teacher quickly set the other children some work and took little Bruce Junior aside to ask him if that was really true.

"No" said Bruce Junior "He plays cricket for Australia but I was just too embarrassed to say."

A couple attending an art exhibition (10/9/05)

A couple attending an art exhibition in the National Art Gallery were staring at a portrait that had them totally confused.  The painting depicted three black men, totally naked, sitting on a park bench. Two of the black men had black ‘todgers’ while the one sitting in the middle had a pink ‘todger’!
The curator of the gallery realised that the couple were having trouble interpreting the painting and went over to help. He went on, and on, for nearly half an hour explaining how it depicted the sexual emasculation of Afro-Americans in a predominantly white patriarchal society. He went on to say that in fact some serious critics believed the pink ‘todger’ reflects the cultural and social oppression experienced by gay men in a contemporary society!
After the curator left a Scotsman approached the couple and said “Would you like to know what that painting is really all about?”
The couple said “How would you claim to know more about that painting than the curator of the gallery”.
The Scotsman said “it’s because I’m the guy that painted it! In fact there is no African – American representation at all. They’re just three Scottish coal miners and the guy in the middle went home for lunch!”

Trainee Zoo Keeper (8/8/05)

His first job is to clear the exotic fish pool of weeds. As he is doing this, a large sturgeon clamps its mouth around his ankle and does not let go.  To stop the sturgeon doing this he beats the fish to death with a spade. Realising his employer won’t be best pleased, the keeper disposes of the fish by feeding it to the lions, as the lions will eat anything.

Moving on to the second task of clearing out the Chimp house, the keeper is attacked by the older chimps who pelt him with coconuts. He swipes at two older chimps with a spade, killing them both. What can he do? Feed them to the lions, he says to himself, because lions eat anything so he hurls the corpses into the lion enclosure.

He moves on to his last job, which is to collect honey from the South American Bees. As soon as he starts, he is attacked by the bees. He grabs the spade again and smashes the bees to a pulp. By now he knows what to do, and throws them into the lions cage because the lions will eat anything.

Later that same day a new lion arrives at the zoo. He wanders up to another lion and says "What's the food like here?" The other lion says: "Absolutely brilliant, today we had Fish and Chimps with Mushy Bees."

A general noticed one of his soldiers behaving oddly (24/6/05)

A general noticed one of his soldiers behaving oddly. The soldier would pick up any piece of paper he found, frown and say: “That's not it” and put it down again. This went on for some time, until the general arranged to have the soldier psychologically tested. The psychologist concluded that the soldier was deranged, and wrote out his discharge from the army. The soldier picked it up, smiled and said: “That's it.”

A Jack Russell went to the post office (17/6/05)

A Jack Russell went to the post office, took out a blank form and wrote:
“Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof.”
The clerk examined the paper and politely told the dog: “There are only nine words here. You could send another ‘Woof’ for the same price.”
The dog replied, "Don't be stupid, that would make no sense at all!”

Sherlock Holmes (10/6/05)

Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson go on a camping trip. After a good dinner and a bottle of wine, they retire for the night, and go to sleep. Some hours later, Holmes wakes up and nudges his faithful friend. "Watson, look up at the sky and tell me what you see."  "I see millions and millions of stars, Holmes" replies Watson.   "And what do you deduce from that?" Watson ponders for a minute. "Well, astronomically, it tells me that there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets.

Astrologically, I observe that Saturn is in Leo. Horologically, I deduce that the time is approximately a quarter past three.

Meteorologically, I suspect that we will have a beautiful day tomorrow. Theologically, I can see that God is all-powerful, and that we are a small and insignificant part of the universe. What does it tell you, Holmes?" Holmes is silent for a moment. "Watson, you idiot!" he says. "Someone has stolen our tent!"

This woman rushed to see her doctor(07/05/05)

This woman rushed to see her doctor, looking very much worried and all strung out. She rattles off: "Doctor, take a look at me. When I woke up this morning, I looked at myself in the mirror and saw my hair all wiry and frazzled up, my skin was all wrinkled and pasty, my eyes were bloodshot and bugging out, and I had this corpse-like look on my face! What's WRONG with me, Doctor?" The doctor looks her over for a couple of minutes, then calmly says: "Well, I can tell you that there ain't nothing wrong with your eyesight...."

A man and a friend are playing golf (28/3/05)

A man and a friend are playing golf one day at their local golf course. One of the guys is about to chip onto the green when he sees a long funeral procession on the road next to the course. He stops in mid-swing, takes off his golf cap, closes his eyes, and bows down in prayer.  His friend says: "Wow, that is the most thoughtful and touching thing I have ever seen. You truly are a kind man. The man then replies: "Yeah, well we were married for 35 years."

When NASA (28/3/05)

When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered that ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion to develop a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from below freezing to 300 C. The Russians used a pencil.

A Turtle was walking (12/3/05)

A turtle was walking down an alley in New York when a gang of snails mugged him. A police detective came to investigate and asked the turtle if he could explain what happened.  The turtle looked at the detective with a confused look on his face and replied "I don't know, it all happened so fast."

The Queen and Dolly Parton (25/02/05)

Sadly both 'our' Queen Elizabeth and Dolly Parton pass away on the same day and they find themselves in front of the Pearly Gates. Unfortunately, there is only one space left that day, so the Angel must decide which of them is allowed into Heaven.

The Angel asks Dolly if there's a particular reason why she should go to Heaven. Struggling to think of a good reason she then loosens her top and says. "Look at these, they're the most perfect breasts God ever created, and I'm sure it will please him to be reminded of them for eternity".

The Angel thanks Dolly, and asks Her Majesty the same question.

The Queen takes a bottle of Perrier water out of her purse, shakes it up, takes a mouthful and then proceeds to gargle for a bit. The Queen then spits the water down the toilet and pulls the lever. The Angel says, "OK, your Majesty, you may go in".

Not surprisingly Dolly Parton is outraged and asks "What’s that all about then? I show you two of God's own perfect creations, and you turn me down. The Queen simply gargles a bit and she gets in. How do you explain that one to me?"

"Sorry Dolly" says the Angel "Even in Heaven, a royal flush beats a pair, no matter how big they are!

Letter from a Farm Kid - Now at ‘San Diego Marine Corps Recruit’ (19/02/05)

Dear Ma and Pa,
I am well. Hope you are. Tell Brother Walt and Brother Elmer the Marine Corps beats working for old man Minch by a mile. Tell them to join up quick before all of the places are filled. I was restless at first because you got to stay in bed till nearly 6 a.m. but I am getting so I like to sleep late. Tell Walt and Elmer all you do before breakfast is smooth your cot, and shine some things. No hogs to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay, practically nothing. Men got to shave but it is not so bad, there's warm water. Breakfast is strong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon, etc. but kind of weak on chops, potatoes, ham, steak, fried eggplant, pie and other regular food, but tell Walt and Elmer you can always sit by the two city boys that live on coffee. Their food plus yours holds you til noon when you get fed again. It's no wonder these city boys can't walk much. We go on "route marches", which the platoon sergeant says are long walks to harden us. If he thinks so, it's not my place to tell him different. A "route march" is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city guys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks.

The country is nice but awful flat the sergeant is like a school teacher. He nags a lot. The Captain is like the school board. Majors and colonels just ride around and frown. They don't bother you none. This next will kill Walt and Elmer with laughing. I keep getting medals for shooting. I don't know why. The bulls-eye is near as big as a chipmunk head and don't move, and it ain't shooting at you like the Higgett boys at home. All you got to do is lie there all comfortable and hit it. You don't even load your own cartridges. They come in boxes.
Then we have what they call hand-to-hand combat training. You get to wrestle with them city boys. I have to be real careful though, they break real easy. It ain't like fighting with that ole bull at home. I'm about the best they got in this except for that Tug Jordan from over in Silver Lake. I only beat him once. He joined up the same time as me, but I'm only 5'6" and 130 pounds and he's 6'8" and near 300 pounds dry.
Be sure to tell Walt and Elmer to hurry and join before other fellers get onto this setup and come stampeding in.

Your loving daughter, Gail

A woman goes into Harrods to buy a rod and reel (12/02/05)

A woman goes into Harrods to buy a rod and reel for her grandson's birthday. She doesn't know which one to get, so she just grabs one and goes over to the counter. The Harrods salesman is standing there, wearing dark sunglasses.

She says, "Excuse me. Can you tell me anything about this rod and reel?"

He says, "Madam, I'm completely blind; but, if you'll drop it on the counter, I can tell you everything you need to know about it from the sound it makes."

She doesn't believe him but drops it on the counter anyway.

He says, "That's a six-foot Shakespeare graphite rod with a Zebco 404 reel and 10-lb.Test line. It's a good all around combination, and it's on sale this week for £44."

She says, "It's amazing that you can tell all that just by the sound of it dropping on the counter. I'll take it!"

As she opens her purse, her credit card drops on the floor. "Oh, that sounds like a Visa card," he says. As the lady bends down to pick up the card, she accidentally breaks wind.

At first she is really embarrassed but then realises there is no way the blind salesman could tell it was she who had farted.

The man rings up the sale and says, "That'll be £58.50 please." The woman is totally confused by this and asks, "Didn't you tell me it was on sale for £44. How did you get to £58.50?"

He replies, "Yes Madam, the rod and reel are £44, but the Duck Caller is £11 and the Fish Bait is £3.50."
