A young man wanted to purchase a gift for his new sweetheart’s birthday. As they had not been dating very long, after careful consideration, he decided a pair of gloves would strike the right note: romantic, but not too personal.

He took along his girl’s younger sister for advice, and together they went to the department store and bought a pair of gloves. The sister purchased a pair of panties for herself.

During the wrapping, the clerk mixed up the items and the sister got the gloves and the sweetheart got the panties. Without checking the contents, the young man sealed the package and sent it to his sweetheart with the following note:

“I chose these because I noticed that you are not in the habit of wearing any. If it had not been for your sister, I would have chosen the long ones with the buttons, but she wears short ones that are easier to remove.

“I wish I was there to put them on for you the first time, as no doubt other hands will come in contact with them before I have a chance to see you again.

“When you take them off, remember to blow in them before putting them away as they will naturally be a little damp from wearing.

“I hope you will wear them for me on Friday night!”

All my love.

It was time for the final and the student depending upon getting at least one right answer on the chemistry test.

The question was “If H2O if water, what is H2O4?”

This was a quick question for most, but it took the student some thinking time.

Finally, he wrote down his answer: For drinking, washing, cleaning…


A newspaper editor received this note from a reader:

“My wife was about to file for a divorce when she read the article in your paper about the importance of giving second chances in making a marriage work. So she changed her mind about the divorce. Effective today, cancel my subscription to your paper.”


I ran across this on Facebook. Rather than attempting to transcribe it I thought it was better to have the original video – so much better.

In honour of Valentine’s Day, a selection of amusements loosely connected with love . . .

A husband and wife came for counseling after 15 years of marriage. When asked what the problem was, the wife went into a passionate, painful tirade listing every problem they had ever had in the 15 years they had been married.

She went on and on and on: neglect, lack of intimacy, emptiness, loneliness, feeling unloved and unlovable, an entire laundry list of un-met needs she had endured over the course of their marriage.

Finally, after allowing this to go on for a sufficient length of time, the therapist got up, walked around the desk and, after asking the wife to stand, embraced and kissed her passionately.

The woman shut up and quietly sat down as though in a daze.

The therapist turned to the husband and said, “This is what your wife needs at least three times a week. Can you do this?”

The husband thought for a moment and replied, “Well, I can drop her off here on Mondays and Wednesdays, but on Fridays, I fish!”

The elevator in our building malfunctioned one day, leaving several of us stranded. Seeing a sign that listed two emergency phone numbers, I dialled the first and explained our situation.

After what seemed to be a very long silence, the voice on the other end said, “I don’t know what you expect me to do for you; I’m a psychologist.”

“A psychologist?” I replied. “Your phone is listed here as an emergency number. Can’t you help us?”

“Well,” he finally responded in a measured tone. “How do you feel about being stuck in an elevator?

A man and his friend were exiting a drugstore and at the front door there was a scale.

“Look, a scale,” the man said to his friend. “Let’s see how my new diet is working out.”

He stepped on the scale.

“I can’t believe it!” he said as he read the result. “I’ve been on this diet for two weeks but the scale says I’m heavier than I was before! How can that be?”

He pondered this as he stepped off the scale, then had a thought. He took off his jacket and handed it to his friend. “Here, hold my jacket,” he said.

The friend took the jacket as the man stepped back on the scale.

Not much change.

“Here,” he said as he handed his purchase from the drugstore to his friend. “Hold my Twinkies too.”

I was in a couple’s home trying to fix their Internet connection. The husband called out to his wife in the other room for the computer password. “Start with a capital S, then 123,” she shouted back.

We tried S123 several times, but it didn’t work. So we called the wife in. As she input the password, she muttered, “I really don’t know what’s so difficult about typing ‘Start123.'”

This from my friend Julie.

Just in case anyone needs some lessons about governments…

The Forecaster

The king wanted to go fishing and he asked the royal weather forecaster the forecast for the next few hours.

The palace meteorologist assured him that there was no chance of rain.

So the king and the queen went fishing…

On the way he met a man with a fishing pole riding on a donkey, and he asked the man if the fish were biting.

The fisherman said, “Your Majesty, you should return to the palace! In just a short time I expect a huge rain storm.”

The king replied: “I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard. He is an educated and experienced professional. Besides, I pay him very high wages. He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him.”

So the king continued on his way, however, in a short time a torrential rain fell from the sky. The King and Queen were totally soaked.

Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to fire the meteorologist.

Then he summoned the fisherman and offered him the prestigious position of royal forecaster.

The fisherman said, “Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey.

If I see my donkey’s ears drooping, it means with certainty that… it will rain.”

So the king hired the donkey.

And thus began the practice of hiring dumb asses to work in influential positions of government.

The practice is unbroken to this date and is especially prevalent in the UK. Continue reading “27 December 2020 – Amusements”
