Four old-timers were playing their weekly game of golf when one remarked
how nice it would be to wake up on Christmas morning, roll out of bed
and, without an argument, go directly to the golf course, meet his
buddies, and play a round.



His buddies all chimed in and said, "Let's do it! We'll make it a
priority; figure out a way and we’ll meet here early on Christmas morning."

However, all four agreed that it would very difficult, if not impossible to win the approval of their

respective wives and partners in order that they might visit a golf course on such an auspicious day.



Months later, the special morning arrived, and there they were on the
golf course. The first guy said, "Boy, this game cost me a fortune! I
bought my wife a diamond ring and she can't take her eyes off it."



The second guy said, "I spent a ton, too. My wife is at home planning the cruise I gave her. She was up to her eyeballs in brochures."



The third guy said "Well, my wife is at home admiring her new car,
reading the manual."They all turned to the last guy in the group who was staring at them
as though they had lost their minds.

"I can't believe you all went to such expense for this golf game,” he said.

“I slapped my wife on the bum and said, 'Well babe, Merry Christmas! It's
a great morning -- intercourse or golf course ?”

She said, "Don't forget your hat!

Up to my neck in it in Sandy, Beds
Here's my offering...

My wife and I were talking over dinner the other night and she mentioned the statue meant to honour the feminist icon Mary Wollstonecraft. She said that numerous people had commented about the naked lady on top of the statue and how prominent her 'lady garden' was and that it looked like a clump of broccoli....and I said 'was it because she had a vegina?'......

A guy comes home completely drunk one night, he lurches through the door

and is met by his scowling wife, who is most definitely not happy.



‘Where the hell have you been all night?’ she demands.

‘At this fantastic new bar,’ he says. ‘The Golden Saloon, everything there is golden.

It’s got huge golden doors, a golden floor, the works – hell, even the urinal’s gold!’



The wife still doesn’t believe his story, and the next day checks the phone book,

finding a place across town called the Golden Saloon.



She calls up the place to check her husband’s story.

‘Is this the Golden Saloon?’ she asks when the bartender answers the phone.



‘Yes it is,’ bartender answers.
‘Do you have huge golden doors?’
‘Sure do.’ ‘Do you have golden floors?’
‘Most certainly do.’
‘What about golden urinals?’



There’s a long pause, then the woman hears the bartender yelling,
‘Hey, Duke, I think I got a lead on the guy that pineappled in your saxophone last night!’

Euro Language

The European Union commissioners have announced that agreement has been reached to adopt English as the preferred language for communications, rather than German, which was the other possibility

As part of the negotiations, Her Majesty’s Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a five-year phased plan for what will be known as Euro-English (Euro for short)

In the first year, “s” will be used instead of the soft “c”. Sertainly, sivil servants will reseive this news with joy. Also the hard “c” will be replased with “k”. Not only will this klear up confusion, but typewriters will have one less letter.

There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the second year, when the troublesome “ph” will be replased by “f”. This will make words like “fotograf” 20 % shorter.

In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible. Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters, which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes of silent “e’s” in the languag is disgrasful, and they would go.

By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to steps, such as replasing “th” with “z” and “w” with “v”.

During ze fifz year, ze unesesary “o” kan be dropd from vords containing “ou”, and similar changes vud of kors be aplid to ozer kombinations of leters.

After zis fifz yer, ve vil hav a reli sensibl styl. Zer vil be no mor trubls or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi to understand ech ozer.

Ze drem vil finali kum tru.
