Italian Math

An Italian man wants a job, but the foreman won’t hire him until he passes a little math test. “Here’s your first question,” the foreman said. “Without using numbers, represent the number 9.”
“Without numbers?” the Italian says, “Data easy.” and he proceeds to draw three trees.
“What’s this?” the boss asks.
“Ave you got no brain? Tree and tree and tree makea nine,” says the Italian.
“Fair enough,” says the boss. “Here’s your second question. Use the same rules, but this time the number is 99.”
The Italian stares into space for a while, then picks up the picture that he has just drawn and makes a smudge on each tree. “Ere you go.”
The boss scratches his head and says, “How on earth do you get that to represent 99?”
“Each of da trees isa dirty now. So, it’s dirty tree, and dirty tree, and dirty tree. Dat is 99.”
The boss is getting worried that he’s going to actually have to hire this Italian, so he says, “All right, last question. Same rules again, but represent the number 100.”
The Italian stares into space some more, then he picks up the picture again and makes a little mark at the base of each tree and says, “Ere you go. One hundred.”
The boss looks at the attempt. “You must be nuts if you think that represents a hundred!”
(You’re going to love this one!!!)
The Italian leans forward and points to the marks at the base of each tree and says, “A little doga came along and crapa by eacha tree. So now you gota dirty tree and a turd, dirty tree and a turd, and dirty tree and a turd, data makea one hundred. So, when I a start?”

Beware of the dog!

Upon entering a little country store, the stranger noticed a sign saying, ‘DANGER! BEWARE OF DOG!’ posted on the glass door.

Inside, he noticed a harmless old hound dog asleep on the floor near the cash register. He asked the store’s owner, ‘Is that the dog folks are supposed to beware of?’

‘Yep,’ the proprietor answered. ‘That’s him.’

The stranger couldn’t help being amused. ‘That certainly doesn’t look like a dangerous dog to me,’ he chuckled. ‘Why in the world did you decide to post that sign?’

‘Because,’ the owner replied. ‘Before I posted that sign, people kept tripping over him.’

Here’s some good sport one-liners:

I get enough exercise just pushing my luck

and last but not least, here are ten scientific principles that apply to the study of all martial arts:

  • The wimp who made it through the eliminations on luck alone will suddenly turn into Bruce Lee when you’re up against him.
  • The referee will always be looking the other way when you score.

Before you buy a house

If Hollywood has taught us anything about house buying in creepy films you should check:

  • The house was not built on ancient Indian? burial ground
  • No one died in the bath
  • If its a mansion and its been sold at a fraction of its real value, its probably haunted
  • The house was not built on the ground of? an ancient orphanage. According to Hollywood bad things usually happen here and there will be ghosts
  • The house was not built on the grounds of an old hospital, ghosts of dead patients.
  • Find out if the previous occupants are still alive
  • Find out if the previous occupants had a tendency to go crazy with chainsaws
  • Check the basement for a doomsday door or well with a crazy creature inside it.
  • Check if anyone of the previous occupants were burnt alive for witchcraft. She/He will probably haunt you.
  • If your dog, cat, mouse or what ever creature you have acts strange in the house or barks/squeaks at thin air don’t buy it, its probably haunted.
  • If your kids suddenly start having imaginary friends they never had before that ask them to climb on the roof of the house, its probably haunted.
  • If your kid finds a strange scary looking doll at the new house and starts acting strange take it away leave it in the house and run. Its probably haunted.

Bat accident

Two vampire bats are hanging upside down in a cave. One of the bats feels rather hungry. ‘Let’s go and find some blood’, he suggests.

‘I don’t think you can get any blood this time of the day’, says the other bat.

‘Well, I want some blood and I want it now!’, says the first bat and prepares to take off. ‘Are you coming or what?’

‘Don’t be stupid, you’ll just waste your time’, says the second bat.

So the first bat flies anyway. After a few minutes he is back with blood smeared all over his face. ‘Where did you manage to find blood this time of the day?’, asks the second bat.

‘Well, do you see that tree out there?’, says the first bat and points at a tree outside the cave, ‘Do you see that tree?’

‘Yes’, says the second bat, ‘of course I see it’.

‘Well, I didn’t’, replies the first.

Wedding invitations

My friend’s sister was to be married on short notice but still wanted an elaborate wedding. The invitations were ready to be mailed when someone noticed that there were no inserted cards inviting guests to the reception.

Undaunted, the mother of the bride typed up a note, made 280 copies and enclosed one with each formal invitation.

Family and friends were surprised to read: ‘Conception immediately following the ceremony in the grand Ballroom of the Holiday Inn.

‘Everyone is invited.’

Why I sacked my secretary

Buy this prank Last week was my birthday and I didn’t feel very well waking up that morning. I went downstairs for breakfast hoping my wife would be pleasant and say, “Happy birthday!”, and possibly have a present for me.

As it turned out, she barely said good morning, let alone “Happy birthday”.

I thought… well, that’s marriage for you, but the kids will remember. My kids ate breakfast and didn’t say a word.

So when I left for the office, I was feeling pretty low and somewhat despondent.

As I walked into my office, my secretary, Jane said, “Good morning boss, happy birthday!” It felt a little better that at least someone had remembered.

I worked until one o’clock and then Jane knocked on my door and said, “You know, it’s such a beautiful day outside, and it’s your birthday, let’s go out to lunch, just you and me”.

I said, “Thanks Jane, that’s the greatest thing I’ve heard all day. Let’s go!”

We went to lunch. But we didn’t go where we normally would go. We dined instead at a little place with a private table. We had two martinis each and I enjoyed the meal tremendously.

On the way back to the office, Jane said, “You know, it’s such a beautiful day… We don’t need to go back to the office, do we?”

I responded, “I guess not. What do you have in mind?”

She said, “Let’s go to my apartment”.

After arriving at her apartment Jane turned to me and said, “Boss, if you don’t mind, I’m going to step into the bedroom for a moment. I’ll be right back”.

“OK”, I nervously replied.

She went into the bedroom and, after a couple of minutes, she came out carrying a huge birthday cake… followed by my wife, kids, and dozens of my friends and co-workers, all singing “Happy Birthday”.

And I just sat there…

On the couch…

Naked…

Birds and Bees

Morris asked his ten-year-old son if he knew about the birds and the bees.

‘I don’t want to know!’ the child said, bursting into tears.

Confused, the father asked his son what was wrong.

‘Oh Dad,’ he sobbed, ‘at age six I got the ‘there’s no Santa’ speech. At age seven I got the ‘there’s no Easter Bunny’ speech. Then at age 8 you hit me with the ‘there’s no Tooth Fairy’ speech! If you’re going to tell me that grown-ups don’t really have sex, I’ve got nothing left to live for!’

NEW COMPANY POLICIES

SICKNESS AND RELATED LEAVE: –
We will no longer accept a doctor‘s statement as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.

SURGERY: –
Operations are now banned. As long as you are an employee here, you need all your organs. You should not consider removing anything. We hired you intact. To have something removed constitutes a breach of employment.

BEREAVEMENT LEAVE: –
This is no excuse for missing work. There is nothing you can do for dead friends, relatives or co-workers. Every effort should be made to have non-employees attend to the arrangements. In rare cases, where employee involvement is necessary, the funeral should be scheduled in the late afternoon. We will allow you to work through your lunch hour and subsequently leave one hour early.

YOUR OWN DEATH: –
This will be accepted as an excuse. However, we require at least two weeks notice as it is your duty to train your replacement.

TOILET USE
Entirely too much time is being spent in the toilets. In the future, we will follow the practices of going in alphabetical order. For instance, those whose names begin with ‘A’ will go from 8:00 to 8:10, employees whose names begin with ‘B’ will go from 8:10 to 8:20 and so on. If you’re unable to go at your time, it will be necessary to wait until the next day when your time comes again. In extreme emergencies, employees may swap their time with a co-worker. Both employees’ supervisors must approve the exchange in writing. In addition, there is now a strict three minute time limit in the stalls. At the end of the three minutes, an alarm bell will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract, and the stall door will open.
