The Media Listens To Me, You Know

7 Oct

How strange life is: one word from me and the South African Mail & Guardian newspaper changes its copy.

Sorry, I don’t know how to use my German keyboard to do a printscreen: I can’t find the key.

Today’s twitter exchange:

@2summers2010 @mailandguardian They might want a title re-think: I read ‘used’ as ‘once did’ 🙂

@laughwife good point! We’ve tweaked it slightly to make it clearer. Thank you for the heads up.
 
 
 

Joke 197

7 Oct

Thanks to Viv’s Jock for this joke.

Three old ladies, sisters, died and arrived at the pearly gates, where St Peter greeted them.

“You have led virtuous lives, without sin;  but then you have never been in the way of temptation.  So you can come in but you must look after the ducks.”  They were taken to a huge hangar where the floor was covered with ducks of all ages, and warned that they would be punished if they killed or damaged a single duck.

Sure enough, one old lady tripped, stood on a duck and killed it.  As a punishment, she was handcuffed to the smelliest, ugliest, wartiest old man for eternity. One month later, another old lady stood on a duck and she was similarly punished.  A few weeks later, the third old lady was handcuffed to a handsome young Adonis, the answer to all her secret desires.

“What have I done to deserve this?”  she asks.

“I don’t know, ” said the young man; “but I stood on a duck.”
