Now time for a little humour

Christmas Office Party

After the annual office Christmas party blow-out, John woke up with a pounding headache, cotton-mouthed, and utterly unable to recall the events of the preceding evening.

After a trip to the bathroom he was able to make his way downstairs, where his wife put some coffee in front of him.

"Louise," he moaned, "tell me what went on last night.

Was it as bad as I think?"

"Even worse," she assured him in her most scornful one. "

You made a complete ass of yourself, succeeded in antagonizing the entire board of directors, and insulted the chairman of the company to his face."

"He's an arrogant, self-important prick, piss on him!"

"You did.

All over his suit, " Louise informed him.

"And he fired you."

"Well, screw him," said John.

"I did. You're back at work on Monday."


A Scotsman calls his son in London the day before Christmas Eve and says, I hate to ruin your day, laddie but I have to tell you that your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough.

'Dad, what are you talking about?' the son screams.

We cannae stand the sight of each other any longer,' the father says. 'We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Leeds and tell her.'

Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. 'Like hell they're getting divorced,' she shouts, 'I'll take care of this,'
She calls Scotland immediately, and screams at her father, 'You are NOT getting divorced.

Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?' and hangs up.

The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. 'Okay,' he says, 'they're coming for Christmas - and they're paying their own way.'


The Parrot

A young man named John received a parrot as a Christmas gift.

The parrot had a bad attitude and an even worse vocabulary.
Everything the bird said was rude, obnoxious and laced with profanity.
John tried and tried to change the bird's attitude by consistently saying only polite words, playing soft music and anything else he could think of to "clean up" the bird's vocabulary.
Finally, John was fed up and he yelled at the parrot.
The parrot yelled back.

John shook the parrot and the parrot became angrier and even ruder.
John, in desperation, grabbed the bird and put him in the freezer.

For a few minutes the parrot squawked and kicked and screamed and swore.

Then suddenly there was total quiet.

Not a peep was heard for over a minute.
Fearing that he'd hurt the parrot, John quickly opened thedoor to the freezer.

The parrot calmly stepped out onto John's outstretched arm and said:
"I believe I may have offended you with my rude language and actions.

I'm sincerely remorseful for my transgressions and I fully intend to do everything I can to correct my rude and unforgivable behavior.

" John was stunned at the change in the bird's attitude.

As he was about to ask the parrot what had made such a dramatic change in his behavior, the bird continued,

"May I ask what the turkey did?"

A few one liners
What beats his chest and swings from Christmas cake to Christmas cake? Tarzipan !

Mum, Can I have a dog for Christmas ? No you can have turkey like everyone else !

What did the eskimos sing when they got there Christmas dinner ? "Whalemeat again, don't
know where, don't know when " !

What did the big cracker say to the little cracker ?My pop is bigger than yours !

Who is never hungry at Christmas ?The turkey - he's always stuffed !

What bird has wings but cannot fly ? Roast turkey !

Whats the best thing to put into a Christmas cake ?Your teeth !

We had grandma for Christmas dinner ?Really, we had turkey !

Whats happens if you eat the Christmas decorations ?You get tinsel-itus !

What do vampires put on their turkey at Christmas ? Grave-y !

Gidday Jeanette,

Okay, okay I've been away from blogging for a while now and when I heard that Van Johnson had recently passed away, I knew I had to do a post on this remarkable actor.
Also, I think your e-mail, a while ago, hinted why hadn't I posted about Peter and my visit to Victoria in November, so that's my next venture.
Hum, so one of your five things you like about Christmas is receiving many Christmas cards.
Okay, I'm gong to e-mail you the Christmas card I have sent out this have been warned!!
