    Saw this one on reddit and thougth it might be worth sharing:


    A King asked his servant to look for five biggest idiots in his state and produce them in his court within a month.

    After a month's extensive search operations, the servant brought to the court only two people!

    "But I asked for five", the king said angrily

    "Give me a chance to present them one by one", the servant pleaded and went on to present his idiots:

    "Sire, this man, while travelling in a bullock cart, was keeping his luggage on his head so as not to hurt the bullocks. He is the first idiot.

    Pointing to the second man the servant continued, "And this man here is the second idiot. Some grass grew on the roof of his thatched house and he was trying to force his cow climb up a ladder to graze on them."

    The servant continued, "sire, there were a lot of importants jobs for me to do in the state, but I ignored them and wasted a precious month in searching for idiots. According to me I am the third idiot."

    The king paused here for a moment.

    "Who are the fourth and fifth idiots?", the king thundered.

    "Beg your pardon, sire", the servant continued, "You are the King and are responsible for the wellbeing of the entire state and its people. You need wise persons to help you oversee the state affairs. Instead of looking for wise people you engaged me to look for idiots. According to me you are the fourth idiot.

    And, sire, the person who is glued to this post, keeping aside all his high priority assignments, oblivious of pressing needs of his familiy, just to learn who is the fifth idiot, is the fifth idiot himself.

    As a trucker stops at a red light, a blonde catches up. She jumps out of her car, runs up to his truck, and knocks on the door. The trucker lowers the window, and she says "Hi, my name is Heather and you're losing some of your load."

    The trucker ignores her and proceeds down the street. When the truck stops for another red light, the girl catches up again. She jumps out of her car, runs up and knocks on the door. Again, the trucker lowers the window. As if they've never spoken, the blonde says brightly, "Hi my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!"

    Shaking his head, the trucker ignores her again and continues down the street. At the third red light, the same thing happens again. All out of breath, the blonde gets out of her car, runs up, knocks on the truck door. The trucker lowers the window. Again she says "Hi, my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!"

    When the light turns green the trucker revs up and races to the next light. When he stops this time, he hurriedly gets out of the truck, and runs back to the blonde's car. He knocks on her window, and as she lowers it, he says "Hi, my name is Kevin, it's Winter in Michigan and I'm driving the SALT TRUCK!"

    A chicken walks into a library and says, "buk". The librarian hands him a book. The chicken takes it and leaves. Then the next day ...

    The chicken again walks into the library and says "bukbuk", and the librarian hands him two books. The chicken takes the books and leaves. The third day, chicken says "bukbukbuk", and the librarian hands him three books. And so on until the fifth day, when the chicken says "bukbukbukbukbuk", the librarian hands him five books and follows the chicken to see what it's doing with all these books.


    There is a frog sitting across the way that the chicken takes the books to. The librarian, confused but curious, continues to follow the chicken. The chicken approaches the frog, says "bukbukbukbukbuk", places the five books into the frogs hands. The frog responds by tossing each book aside one by one, "reddit reddit reddit reddit reddit"!

    Am Ostersamstag kam mir die 4-CD-Box "Black & Blue" ins Haus geflogen - mit rd. 5 Stunden X-rated schwarzer "comedy" aus den 60er und 70er Jahren. Hier eine erste Kostprobe von Jimmy Lynch, "The Funky Tramp":


    A man comes home drunk and accidentally eats a can of dog food. The next day he tells his wife that whatever it was he ate he loved it. "Get me some more!" So she goes to the store and buys three cans. The clerk asks how many dogs does she have. She says: "None. It's for my husband." And she tells him the story. The clerk tells her that if she keeps feeding him dog food it will kill him. She says if she tells her husband he ate dog food he'll kill her - so all week she keeps buying him dog food and every time the clerk warns her.

    Finally, one day she comes into the store crying because her husband ist dead. The clerk says: "I told you that dog food would kill him. "

    She says: "It wasn't the fog food. He was sitting in the middle of the street licking his balls and a truck ran over him."

    Aus einem alten archivierten Faden, eingesandt im Januar 2005:


    A man walked into the produce section of his local supermarket and asked to buy half a head of lettuce. The boy working in that department told him that they only sold whole heads of lettuce, but the man was insistent that the boy ask his manager about the matter.


    Walking into the back room, the boy said to his manager, "Some wanker wants to buy a half a head of lettuce". As he finished his sentence, he turned to find the man standing right behind him, so he added, "And this gentleman kindly offered to buy the other half".


    The manager approved the deal and the man went on his way.


    Later the manager found the boy and said, "I was impressed with the way you got yourself out of that situation earlier. We like people who think on their feet here. Where are you from, son?".


    "Essex, sir", the boy replied.


    "Well, why did you leave Essex," the manager asked.


    The boy answered, "Sir, there's nothing but whores and football players there".


    "Really?", said the manager ruefully, "My wife's from Essex".


    The boy instantly replied, "No shit, which team does she play for?".

    Ein etwas längerer, weil ich gerade bei Jokes about Consultants surfte:



    The Consultant

    A timeless lesson on how Consultants can make a difference.


    Last week, we took some friends out to a new restaurant and noticed that the waiter who took our order carried a spoon in his shirt pocket. It seemed a little strange. When the busboy brought our water and utensils, I noticed he also had a spoon in his shirt pocket. Then I looked around saw that all the staff had spoons in their pockets.


    When the waiter came back to serve our soup I asked, "Why the spoon?" - Well," he explained, "the restaurant's owners hired Kurt Salomon Associates to revamp all our processes. After several months of analysis, they concluded that the spoon is the most frequently dropped utensil. It represents a drop frequency of approx. three spoons per table per hour. If our personnel are better prepared, we can reduce the number of trips back to the kitchen and save 15 man-hours per shift."

    As luck would have it, I dropped my spoon and he was able to replace it with his spare. "I'll get another spoon next time I go to the kitchen instead of making an extra trip to get it right now."

    I was impressed.

    I also noticed that there was a string hanging out of the waiter's fly. Looking around, I noticed that all the waiters had the same string hanging from their flies. So before he walked off, I asked the waiter, "Excuse me, but can you tell me why you have that string right there?"

    "Oh, certainly!" Then he lowered his voice. "Not everyone is so observant. That consulting firm I mentioned also found out that we can save time in the restroom. By tying this string to the tip of you-know-what, we can pull it out without touching it and eliminate the need to wash our hands, shortening the time spent in the restroom by 76.39%."

    "After you get it out, how do you put it back?"

    Well," he whispered, "I don't know about the others, but I use the spoon."

    THIS IS AN ACTUAL CUSTOMER REVIEW FROM A MAN ON AMAZON.CO.UK 

    AFTER USING VEET HAIR REMOVAL CREAM FOR MEN.

    After having been told my danglies looked like an elderly Rastafarian I decided to take the plunge and buy some of this as previous shaving attempts had only been mildly successful and I nearly put my back out trying to reach the more difficult bits.


    Being a bit of a romantic I thought I would do the deed on the missus's birthday as a bit if a treat.

    I ordered it well in advance and working in the North Sea I considered myself a bit above some of the characters writing the previous reviews and wrote them off as soft office types...Oh my fellow sufferers how wrong I was.


    I waited until the other half was tucked up in bed and after giving some vague hints about a special surprise I went down to the bathroom. Initially all went well and I applied the gel and stood waiting for something to happen. I didn' have long to wait.


    At first there was a gentle warmth which in a matter of seconds was replaced by an intense burning and a feeling I can only describe as like being given a barbed wire wedgie by two people intent on hitting the ceiling with my head.


    Religion hadn't featured much in my life until that night but I suddenly became willing to convert to any religion to stop the violent burning around the turd tunnel and what seemed like the the destruction of the meat and two veg.


    Struggling not to bite through my bottom lip I tried to wash the gel off in the sink and only succeeded in blocking the plughole with a mat of hair. Through the haze of tears I struggled out of the bathroom across the hall into the kitchen, by this time walking was not really possible and I crawled the final yard to the fridge in the hope of some form of cold relief.


    I yanked the freezer drawer out and found a tub of ice cream, toe the lid off and positioned it under me.

    The relief was fantastic but only temporary as it melted fairly quickly and the fiery stabbing returned. Due to the shape of the ice cream tub I hadn'nt managed to give the starfish any treatment and I groped around in the draw for something else as I was sure my vision was going to fail fairly soon.


    I grabbed a bag of what I later found out was frozen sprouts and tore it open trying to be quiet as I did so. I took a handful of them and an tried in vain to clench some between the cheeks of my arse.

    This was not doing the trick as some of the gel had found its way up the chutney channel and it felt like the space shuttle was running its engines behind me.


    This was probably and hopefully the only time in my life I was going to wish there was a gay snowman in the kitchen which should give you some idea of the depths I was willing to sink to in order to ease the pain.

    The only solution my pain crazed mind could come up with was to gently ease one of the sprouts where no veg had gone before. Unfortunately, alerted by the strange grunts coming from the kitchen the other half chose that moment to come and investigate and was greeted by the sight of me, arse in the air, strawberry ice cream dripping from my bell end pushing a sprout up my arse while muttering arhhh ooooohhh that feels good ahhh Understandably this was a shock to her and she let out a scream and as I hadn't heard her come in it caused an involuntary spasm of shock in myself which resulted in the sprout being ejected at quite some speed in her direction.


    I can understand that having a sprout fired against your leg at 11 at night in the kitchen probably wasent the special surprise she was expecting and having to explain to the kids the next day what the strange hollow in the ice cream was didn't improve my status so to sum it up, VEET removes hair, dignity and self-respect.

    No.

    I can emphatically not imagine any such thing. The word in my experience is Absolutely. Not. Said. (or written) in polite society.

    Anyone interested in the reasons might find American linguistics professor James McWhorter's discussions helpful, though I can't remember which excerpt of his recent book it was in. Maybe one of these, or maybe on C-Span, I'm not sure; but anyway, in his ranking of a very few words that are still completely taboo, it's in the absolute worst group, along with the (English) n-word.

    Bubb, perhaps I should have cut you more slack, because I do know that you strongly prefer BE and it's used much more carelessly there. I admit I was just very shocked to find that what I had thought was a relatively harmless question about meaning came back with an answer that felt to me like a particularly mean slap in the face.

    In any case, I still maintain that parents should make children of any age aware that there are millions of English speakers in the world, whether simply polite people or women or Americans or any combination of the above, who will find that word completely offensive. Again, especially because it's a bad word in a foreign language, it may seem deceptively innocuous to non-native speakers.

    Weil der frühere US-Präsident von Millionen Amerikanerinnen weiterhin geschätzt wird/ wurde, nachdem er das grässliche "grab her p****" " geäußert hat, - dazu passt m.E. "to spew garbage" - frage ich mich ernsthaft, ob wirklich so viele ordentliche US-Familien über den Bubb'schen Witz entsetzt gewesen wären.

    Der von Bubb gebrachte Witz gehört zwar in die Kategorie, die ich persönlich nicht erzählen würde, aber gerade im Hinblick auf die regionale Aussprache der Mancunians ist er trotzdem durchaus amüsant. Man denke in milderer Form an das badische Aschtrittle (=Astrid) als Vornamen.

    Oder denke an Tom Wolfe, "I am Charlotte Simmons". Wenn ich mich recht erinnere, war Tom Wolfe geschockt von dem, was an Worten und Taten in US- Studentenkreisen möglich ist.

    Medical experts in London were asked today if it was the right time to ease the COVID lockdowns…

    .

    Allergists were in favour of scratching it, but Dermatologists advised not to make any rash moves.


    Gastroenterologists had a sort of a gut feeling about it, but Neurologists thought the government lacked the nerve.


    Obstetricians felt certain everyone was labouring under a misconception, while Ophthalmologists considered the idea short-sighted.


    Many Pathologists yelled, "Over my dead body!" while Paediatricians said, "Oh, grow up!"


    Psychiatrists thought the whole idea was madness, while Radiologists could see right through it.


    Surgeons decided to wash their hands of the whole thing and Pharmacists claimed it would be a bitter pill to swallow.


    Plastic Surgeons opined that this proposal would "put a whole new face on the matter."


    Podiatrists thought it was a step forward, but Urologists were pissed off by the whole idea.


    Anaesthetists thought the whole idea was a gas, and Cardiologists didn't have the heart to say no.

    And one longer one:


    A ship has been badly damaged in a storm and things don’t look good.

    The crew assembles on the deck and the captain shouts over the howling wind, “Men, it’s bad! The helm is broken off, we have three huge holes, I really don’t see this beauty making it to the shore. Is there anyone among you who knows how to pray?”

    This happened at a New York Airport.

    This airline gate agent deserves an award for how she handled a passenger who probably

    deserved to fly as cargo.

    A crowded flight was canceled. A

    single agent was re-booking a long line of inconvenienced travelers.

    Suddenly, an angry passenger pushed his way to the desk. He slapped his ticket on the counter and said, "I HAVE to be on this flight and it has to be FIRST CLASS."

    The agent replied, "I'm sorry, sir. I'll be happy to try to help you, but I've got to help these folks first who were in front of you; and then I'm sure we'll be able to work something out."

    The passenger was unimpressed. He asked loudly, so that the passengers behind him could hear, "DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO I AM?"

    Without hesitating, the agent smiled and grabbed her public address microphone. "May I have your attention, please?", she began, her voice heard clearly throughout the terminal. "We have a passenger here at Gate 14 WHO DOES NOT KNOW WHO HE IS. If anyone can help him with his identity, please come to Gate 14".

    With the folks behind him in line laughing hysterically, the man glared at the airlines agent, gritted his teeth, and said, "F*** You!"

    Without flinching, she smiled and said, "I'm sorry sir, you'll have to get in line for that, too."

There was a cop behind me and I felt a little nervous with a dead crow blocking my view, so I turned on the windshield wipers. The dead bird flew straight up and over my car and landed on the cops windshield. His lights suddenly came on. I pulled over and the cop starts to write me a ticket.

    Five surgeons are discussing who the best patients are to operate on.

    The second responds, "You should try electricians! Everything inside them are color coded."

    The third surgeon replies, "I really think librarians are the best; everything inside them are in alphabetical order."

    The fourth surgeon chimes in, "You know, I like construction workers...they always understand when you have a few parts left over in the end, and when the job takes longer than you said it would."

    But the fifth surgeon shuts them all up with this observation, "You're all wrong. Lawyers are the easiest to operate on. No guts, no heart, no spine, and head and ass are interchangeable."

    A man who has just died finds himself standing at the gates of Heaven. To his right he sees an attractive woman, and to his left is a ladder. The woman says, "Come with me through the gate and spend eternity with me, or climb the ladder to success." The man, always eager to get ahead in life, chooses to climb the ladder.

    The man finds an even more beautiful woman standing in front of another gate. Next to her is another ladder. The woman says, "Come with me through the gate and all your fantasies will be granted, or climb the ladder to success." This time the man is tempted, but his greed takes over and he climbs the ladder higher.

    He again encounters a woman. This woman, however; is the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. She says, "come with me and I will satisfy your deepest desires forever, or climb the ladder to success." The man can't believe his luck. He decides to take his chances and climbs the ladder. He comes to another gate. This time there is no woman waiting for him, but a fat, balding, sweaty man instead.

    "Are you God?" the man asks. "No," the sweaty man replies. "I'm Cess."

    A toast on local management hierarchies:


    During the mesozoic era, a diplodocus roamed the Earth.

    Now think of that 40 meter giant and a cat-sized predator taking a bite out of the tip of the giant's tail. The pain signal ran from tail to the head at about 80 m/s (by the way, this specific velocity didn't really change much through all of evolution). So half a second later the pain signal arrived. A second more passed to make the decision to take a look. The really long neck curved around a bit to rotate the head enough to be able to see the tail at all. That took another second. Seeing and recognizing the small predator as the cause for the hurt tail and making the decision to swipe said tail to squash the annoyance took another second. The signal to the tail tip's muscles had to travel the same 40 meters, taking another half second. So from the bite to the tail-whip, 4 seconds to react. That was enough time for the small predator to finish the first bite, take another and dodge the tail. Given that the tail-whip was the diplodocus' default reaction anyway, that whole signal and decision chain was mostly a waste of time.


    So did the diplodocus walk around with a bloodied and bitten tail tip? No way! The evolution saw fit to evolve a secondary decision-making unit. It was by no means a second brain, just an extra slub of nerve cells at the end of the spinal cord and with the size of a walnut; it sat right where the diplodocus body ended and the tail began, i.e. at the ass. Now the whole "tail hurts" to "tail-whip" process took roughly a second. This certainly means that decisions were maid by the ass of the dino, but that was a necessary trade-off.


    So if you happen to work with a really large enterprise, be ready to accept that issues which are solved at the head office take years. The cost-effective way usually involves your ass of the diplodocus.

    Matt Hancock was doing an annual visit to a hospital. As always, he was looking for something to beat the NHS with to show how badly run and loss making things were there.


    Hancock checked all the books and then did his tour. While on the tour he turned to the ward manager and said, "I notice you buy and use a lot of bandages. What do you do with the plastic middle out of the roll?" "Good question", noted the ward manager, "we save them up and send them back to Johnson and Johnson and every once in a while, they send us a free bandage roll. We like recycle whenever possible." "Oh" he said somewhat disappointed that his unusual question had a practical answer.


    But on he went in his tour to the next ward. "What about all these coloured casts you dispense. They seem to be rather a waste of money?"

    "Ah, yes", replied the ward manager realizing that Hancock was trying to trap her, "we ask that any patient wishing a coloured cast donates £1 which is far in excess of the 10p the colouring actually costs". Hancock was determined to fluster the ward manager. So on they went to the next ward.


    "Well, what do you do with all the remains from the circumcision surgeries?"


    "Here too we do not like wasting", said the manager. "What we do is save all the little foreskins and send them to the government in London and about once a year, at this exact time, they send us a complete cock."

    How can you tell the difference between a chemist and a factory worker? Ask them to pronounce “unionized.”

    So ganz verstehe ich den nicht... Aber aus dem Kontext rate ich mal, dass Barking und Tooting Stadtteile von London sind, die mit der Underground etwa 1 Stunde voneinander entfernt sind. Richtig?

    As a trucker stops at a red light, a blonde catches up. She jumps out of her car, runs up to his truck, and knocks on the door. The trucker lowers the window, and she says "Hi, my name is Heather and you're losing some of your load."

    The trucker ignores her and proceeds down the street. When the truck stops for another red light, the girl catches up again. She jumps out of her car, runs up and knocks on the door. Again, the trucker lowers the window. As if they've never spoken, the blonde says brightly, "Hi my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!"

    Shaking his head, the trucker ignores her again and continues down the street. At the third red light, the same thing happens again. All out of breath, the blonde gets out of her car, runs up, knocks on the truck door. The trucker lowers the window. Again she says "Hi, my name is Heather, and you are losing some of your load!"

    When the light turns green the trucker revs up and races to the next light. When he stops this time, he hurriedly gets out of the truck, and runs back to the blonde's car. He knocks on her window, and as she lowers it, he says "Hi, my name is Kevin, it's Winter in Michigan and I'm driving the SALT TRUCK!"

    My husband and I went through the McDonald's driveway window and I gave the cashier a $5 bill.

    Our total was $4.25, so I also handed her 25c.

    She said, 'you gave me too much money.'

    I said, 'Yes I know, but this way you can just give me a dollar back.'

    She sighed and went to get the manager who asked me to repeat my request.

    I did so, and he handed me back the 25c, and said 'We're sorry but we don’t do that kind of thing.'

    The cashier then proceeded to give me back 75 cents in change.

    Do not confuse the people at MacD's.


    We had to have the garage door repaired.

    The repairman told us that one of our problems was that we did not have a 'large' enough motor on the opener.

    I thought for a minute, and said that we had the largest one made at that time, a 1/2 horsepower.

    He shook his head and said, 'You need a 1/4 horsepower.'

    I responded that 1/2 was larger than 1/4 and he said, 'NOOO, it's not. Four is larger than two.'

    We haven't used that repairman since...


    I live in a semi rural area.

    We recently had a new neighbor call the local city council office to request the removal of the DEER CROSSING sign on our road.

    The reason: 'Too many deers are being hit by cars out here! I don't think this is a good place for them to be crossing anymore.'


    IDIOT SIGHTING IN FOOD SERVICE.

    My daughter went to a Mexican fast food and ordered a taco.

    She asked the person behind the counter for 'minimal lettuce.'

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


    I was at the airport, checking in at the gate when an airport employee asked,

    'Has anyone put anything in your baggage without your knowledge?'

    To which I replied, 'If it was without my knowledge, how would I know?'

    He smiled knowingly and nodded, 'That's why we ask.'


    The pedestrian light on the corner beeps when it's safe to cross the street.

    I was crossing with an 'intellectually challenged' co-worker of mine.

    She asked if I knew what the beeper was for.

    I explained that it signals blind people when the light is red.

    Appalled, she responded, 'what on earth are blind people doing driving?!'

    She is a government employee.....


    When my wife and I arrived at a car dealership to pick up our car after a

    service, we were told the keys had been locked in it.

    We went to the service department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver’s side door.

    As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the door handle and discovered that it was unlocked.

    ‘Hey,' I announced to the technician, 'its open!'

    His reply, 'I know. I already did that side.'


    STAY ALERT!

    They walk among us, they breed, and they vote…....

    Really happened, not at MacD's but in burger restaurant somewhere in NM: My bill was 12.75. I handed the waiter a 20-Dollar note and said: 'Give me five back, please'. He gave me two dollars and a quarter. I said: 'No, please give me five and keep the rest as tip'. He was totally confused. He took all the money back and gave me 7.25. I kept 5, handed him 2.25 and said: 'this is for you'. Now he was satisfied ...

    In a supermarket I recently had to pay 15.30. I gave the cashier a 20 Euro bill and 3 10-Cent coins. The change I received (in addition to an annoyed look) was 2 2-Euro coins, my 3 10-Cent coins, a 20-Cent coin and a 50-Cent coin.

    It's not a joke, but the grim reality of life.
