IT’S THE BUTCHER!

An old woman was lonely. She decided to get a pet. She didn’t have much money so she went to a second hand pet shop. She saw many animals: a three legged cat, a dog without a tail, fish that could only swim backwards and a beautiful bird that could only say one thing, “Who is it?”. She decided to buy the bird. She bought a cage for her bird and went home. She put the bird by the door and went downtown to do some shopping. While she was gone, a man knocked on the door. “Who is it?” replied the parrot. “It’s the butcher,” he said. “Who is it?”, repeated the bird. “It’s the butcher,” said the man. “Who is it?” asked the parrot. “It’s the butcher!!,”, said the man angrily. “Who is it?” “Who is it?” “It’s the butcher!!!!”, he screamed. “It’s the butcher, the butcher, the butch...”

Suddenly the butcher fell to the floor. He had had a heart attack.

Later that day, the old woman came home and found the man laying on her doorstep. She opened her door and asked the parrot, “Who is it?” . The parrot replied,

“It’s the butcher!”.

The Dog
Linda Robinson was very thirsty so she went into a cafe. There was an old woman in the cafe. She was sitting near the door at a table. At her feet, under the table, there was a small dog. Linda bought a glass of lemonade and some cookies. She sat down at the table next to the old woman. The old woman sat quietly. She looked lonely. Linda decided to be kind and talk to the old woman. “It is very hot today.” she said. “Yes, but it is nice inside here.” replied the old woman. Linda looked at the dog and asked, “Does your dog like people.” The woman answered, “Oh! Yes! She loves people.” Linda wanted to give the dog a cookie. So she asked, “ Does your dog like cookies?” “They are his favourite food.” said the old lady. Linda was terribly afraid of dogs so she asked, “Does your dog bite?” The old woman smiled and said, “ NO! My dog is very tame. She is even afraid of cats!” Linda took a cookie in her hand and reached under the table. She put it near the dog’s mouth. But the dog didn’t bite the cookie, she bit her hand! Linda jumped up, spilling her lemonade. She screamed, “I thought you said, your dog didn’t bite.” The old woman looked at Linda and then at the dog. Then she said, “THAT’S NOT MY DOG!”

THE BIRTHDAY PRESENT
A woman needed to buy her mother a birthday present. She didn’t know what to buy her mother. She only had one day to buy her mother something. So she went out window shopping. Soon enough, she walked by a pet store window. She thought to herself, “What a lovely idea for a present! My mother is so lonely and she needs a pet.” The woman went into the store and saw many wonderful animals. Puppy dogs, fluffy cats, gold fish, cute mice. But the woman didn’t think these were special enough. She asked the manager if he had a pet that was really special. The manager thought for a moment and replied, “Yes, but it costs a lot of money. $5,000” “I have a parrot that can speak 7 languages, Chinese, English, French, Korean, German, Russian and even Hindi!” The woman said, “Perfect” and bought the bird. She sent it by special delivery to her mother, so she would get it the next day. The next evening after work, the woman called her mother. She asked, “How do you like your birthday present.” Her mother replied, “Thank you, IT’S DELICIOUS!”

The Salesman
Henry Leech was a salesman. He was a good salesman and sold lots of vacuum cleaners. One week, the manager sent Henry into the countryside to sell. He drove out of town and stopped at a farmhouse. He knocked on the door and the farmer’s wife opened it. Henry started into his speech immediately. “Mam, how much time do you spend sweeping the floors? “ “A lot of time. This is a farm and things get dirty quickly.” said the woman. “And how much time do you spend beating the carpets?” asked Henry. “A lot of time. This house gets dusty and my dog also lays on them” “Well” said Henry, “This is your lucky day.” Henry showed her his vacuum cleaner and said, “You can clean the house in 5 minutes with this!” The farmer’s wife didn’t look interested. Henry took out a big bag of dirt. He opened it and threw it all over the floor. The farmer’s wife was very surprised. Before she could speak Henry said, “ Mam, if this machine doesn’t pick up every last piece of dirt, I will eat all of it!!!!!” The farmer’s wife looked at Henry and said, “WELL, I WILL GET YOU A SPOON. WE HAVE NO ELECTRICITY.”

The Genie
A Frenchman, an Englishman and a German were travelling in a boat from France to Australia. Unfortunately, the boat sank but the three men swam to a small island. There was nobody on the island and the men waited for two months. No boat came to rescue them. They were very unhappy. “We will have to live here forever.” said the Englishman “ We will have to eat bananas every day.” said the German “We will never see our families again.” said the Frenchman. One day, while walking along the beach, they found a bottle. They opened the bottle and out came a genie. The genie said, “Thank you for letting me out of the bottle. I was inside for 500 years! Now I am free. I will give you each one wish.” The German said, “I want to be back in German at a soccer game. With a beer and sausage and singing songs in the stadium.” “POOF”, “Your wish is granted” said the genie. The German was back in Germany. The Frenchman said, “I want to be at the dinner table with my family in France, eating cheese, drinking wine.” “POOF”, “Your wish is granted” said the genie. The Frenchman was back in France. The Englishman just looked at the genie. The genie said, “Hurry up! I want to enjoy my freedom.”

The Englishman thought for a moment and said, “I am rather lonely here. Can you bring back my two friends?”

“Poof”, the German and the Frenchman were back on the island.

The Architect
One Sunday, an architect visited Seoul, Korea. He was there for a conference but had all Sunday to explore the city. He decided to take a taxi around the city and see lots of sites. He paid the taxi driver $100 and said, “Take me around Seoul and show me all the sites” The taxi driver was very happy for the business and started driving. Immediately, they saw a big, beautiful palace. The architect said in a loud voice (for he was from Texas). “What is the building?” The taxi driver said, “That is Gyeongbokgung. It took almost 20 years to build! “Ah, that’s nothing” replied the American. “We could build that in a year in America. The driver continued driving. Suddenly the Texan saw a large domed building. He asked, “What building is that?” The taxi driver said, “That is the National Assembly, it is the largest in Asia.” The architect replied, “Ah, that’s nothing. Back home, we could build that in a few weeks!” The taxi driver continued driving. They passed a very high, gold building which shimmered in the sun. The architect jumped up in his seat and screamed, “Oh my god! What building is that?” The taxi driver looked back at him and shook his head.

He said, “I DON’T KNOW. IT WASN’T THERE THIS MORNING!”

The Suicides
An American, A Frenchman and a Korean were working on a skyscraper being built in Seoul. They worked hard all morning. When it was lunch, they took the elevator up to the top of the very high building and sat on the edge eating their lunches. The American opened his lunch box and said, “Damn! Peanut butter and jam sandwiches again! If I get peanut butter and jam again, I’m gonna jump off this building.” The Frenchman opened up his lunch. “Mon Dieu! Cheese sandwiches again! If I get cheese sandwiches again, I’m gonna jump off this building.” The Korean opened up his lunch box. “Shxxxxx! Kimchee. If I get kimchee again for lunch, I’m going to jump off this building.” The next day, the 3 men did the same thing. They worked hard all morning and then went up to the top of the building, sat on the edge and began to eat lunch. The Korean looked in his lunch box first. “Shexxxx! Kimchee!” He stood up and jumped off the building. The American looked in his lunch box. “Damn! Peanut butter and jam!” He stood up and jumped off the building.

The Frenchman looked in his lunch box. “Merde! Cheese sandwiches!” He stood up and jumped off the building. The next day, the newspapers were full of stories about the 3 construction workers who killed themselves. Everyone wondered why? Even the police had no answers. A few days later at the funeral for the men, the 3 wives were talking. The Korean’s wife said, “I don’t understand. He loved kimchee and always asked me for it.”The American’s wife said, “I don’t understand either. He loved peanut butter since he was a young boy.” The Frenchman’s wife said, “I don’t understand either. HE MADE HIS OWN LUNCH EVERYDAY!

Scottish Student
A student at an English university, by name of Donald MacDonald from the Isle of Skye, was living in the hall of residence during his first year. After he had been there for a month, his mother came to visit, no doubt carrying reinforcements of oatmeal. "And how do you find the English students, Donald?" she asked. "Mother," he replied, "They're such terrible noisy people! The one on that side keeps banging his head against the wall, and won't stop. The one on the other side screams and screams and screams away into the night!" "Oh, Donald! How ever do you manage to put up with these awful noisy English neighbours?" "Mother, I do nothing, I just ignore them! I just stay here quietly playing my bagpipes!"

Navajo woman
Sally was driving home from one of her business trips in Northern Arizona when she saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road. As

the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride. With a word or two of thanks, she got in the car. After resuming the journey and a bit of small talk, the Navajo woman noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally. "What's in the bag?" asked the old woman. Sally looked down at the brown bag and said, "It's a bottle of wine. Got it for my husband." The Navajo woman was silent for a moment, and then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder said, "Good trade."

Jamaican Sandals
A married couple was on holiday in Jamaica. They were touring around the marketplace looking at the goods when they passed this small sandal shop. From inside they heard the shopkeeper with a Jamaican accent say, You foreigners! Come in. Come into my humble shop! " So the married couple walked in. The Jamaican said to them, "I have some special sandals I think you would be interested in. Dey make you wild at sex." Well, the wife was really interested in buying the sandals after what the man claimed, but her husband felt he really didn't need them, being the sex god he was. The husband asked the man, "How could sandals make you into a sex freak? "The Jamaican replied, "Just try dem on, Mon." Well, the husband, after some badgering from his wife, finally gave in, and tried them on. As soon as he slipped them onto his feet, he got this wild look in his eyes. . .

something his wife hadn't seen in many years! In the blink of an eye, the husband grabbed the Jamaican, bent him violently over a table, yanked down his pants, ripped down his own pants, and grabbed a firm hold of he Jamaican's hips. The Jamaican then began screaming, "YOU GOT DEM ON DE WRONG FEET! YOU GOT DEM ON DE WRONG FEET! N0000000000000000

The Lawyer and the Lexus

A very successful lawyer parked his brand-new Lexus in front of his office, ready to show it off to his colleagues. As he got out, a truck passed too close and tore off the door on the driver's side. The lawyer immediately grabbed his cell phone, dialed 911, and within minutes a policeman pulled up. Before the officer had a chance to ask any questions, the lawyer started screaming hysterically. His Lexus, which he had just picked up the day before, was now completely ruined no matter what the body shop did to it. When the lawyer finally wound down from his ranting and raving, the officer shook his head in disgust and disbelief. "I can not believe how materialistic you lawyers are," the cop said. "You are so focused on your possessions that you don't notice anything else." "How can you say such a thing?" asked the lawyer.

The cop replied, "Don't you know that your left arm is missing from the elbow down? It must have been torn off when the truck hit you." "My God!" screamed the lawyer. "My Rolex!"

The Divorce

A judge was interviewing a woman regarding her pending divorce, and asked, "What are the grounds for your divorce?" She replied, "About four acres and a nice little home in the middle of the property with a stream running by." "No," he said, "I mean what is the foundation of this case?" "It is made of concrete, brick and mortar," she responded. "I mean," he continued, "What are your relations like?" "I have an aunt and uncle living here in town, and so do my husband's parents." The judge said, "Do you have a real grudge?" "No," she replied, "We have a two-car carport and have never really needed one."

"Please," he tried again, "is there any infidelity in your marriage?" "Yes, both my son and daughter have stereo sets. We don't necessarily like the music, but the answer to your questions is yes." "Ma'am, does your husband ever beat you up?" "Yes," she responded, "about twice a week he gets up earlier than I do." Finally, in frustration, the judge asked, "Lady, why do you want a divorce?" "Oh, I don't want a divorce," she replied. "I've never wanted a divorce. My husband does. He said he can't communicate with me."

Strange but true (supposedly)
When his 38-caliber revolver failed to fire at its intended victim during a hold up in Long Beach, California, would be robber James Elliot did something that can only inspire wonder: He peered down the barrel and pulled the trigger again. This time it worked. The chef at a hotel in Switzerland lost a finger in a meat cutting machine and, after a little hopping around, submitted a claim to his insurance company. The company, suspecting negligence, sent out one of its men to have a look for himself. He tried the machine out and lost a finger. The chef's claim was approved. A man who shovelled snow for an hour to clear a space for his car during a blizzard in Chicago returned with his vehicle to find a woman had taken the space. Understandably, he shot her After stopping for drinks at an illegal bar, a Zimbabwean bus driver found that the 20 mental patients he was supposed to be transporting from Harare to Bulawayo had escaped. Not wanting to admit his incompetence, the driver went to a nearby bus-stop and offered everyone waiting there a free ride. He then delivered the passengers to the mental hospital, telling the staff that the patients were very excitable and prone to bizarre fantasies. The deception wasn't discovered for 3 days.

An American teenager was in the hospital yesterday recovering from serious head wounds received from an oncoming train. When asked how he received the injuries, the lad told police that he was simply trying to see how close he could get his head to a moving train before he was hit. A mother took her daughter to the doctor and asked him to give her an examination to determine the cause of her daughter's swollen abdomen. It only took the doctor about 2 seconds to say "Your daughter is pregnant." The mother turned red with fury and she argued with the doctor that her daughter was a good girl and would never compromise her reputation by having sex with a boy. The doctor faced the window and silently watched the horizon. The mother became enraged and screamed, "Quit looking out the window! Aren't you paying attention to me?" Yes, of course I am paying attention ma'am. It's just that the last time this happened, a star appeared in the East, and three wise men came. And I was hoping that they would show up again.

Too drunk to drive
A man goes to a party in Memphis, and has too much to drink. His friends plead with him to let them take him home. He says no he only lives a mile away. About five blocks from party, the police pull him over for weaving and ask him to get out of the car and walk the line. Just as he starts, the police radio blares out a notice of a robbery taking place in a house just a block away. The police tell the party animal to stay put, they will be right back and they hop a fence and run down the street to the robbery. The guy waits and waits and finally decides to drive home. When he gets there, he tells his wife he is going to bed, and to tell anyone who might come looking for him that he has the flu and has been in bed all day. A few hours later the police knock on the door. They ask if Mr. X is there and his wife says yes. They ask to see him and she replies that he is in bed with the flu and has been so all day. The police have his driver's license. They ask to see his car and she asks

why. They insist on seeing his car, so she takes them to the garage and opens the door where they find the police car, lights still flashing.

Damn Dog

A woman goes to her boyfriends' parents' house for Easter dinner. This is to be her first time meeting the family, and she is very nervous. They all sit down and begin eating a fine meal. The woman is beginning to feel a little discomfort, thanks to her nervousness and the broccoli casserole. The gas pains are almost making her eyes water. Left with no other choice, she decides to relieve hersel! f a bit and lets out a dainty fart. It wasn't loud, but everyone at the table heard the poof. Before she even had a chance to be embarrassed, her boyfriend's father looked over at the dog that had been snoozing under the woman's chair, and said in a rather stern voice, "Skippy!" The woman thought, "This is great!" and a big smile came across her face. A couple of minutes later, she was beginning to feel the pain again. This time, she ! didn't even hesitate. She let a much louder and longer rrrriiip. The father again looked and the dog and yelled, "Dammit "Skippy!"

Once again the woman smiled and thought "Yes!" A few minutes later the woman had to let another rip. This time she didn't even think about it. She let rip a fart that rivaled a train whistle blowing. Once again, the father looked at the dog with disgust and yelled, "Dammit Skippy, get away from her, before she shits on you!"

Satan Pays a Visit
One bright, beautiful Sunday morning, everyone in the tiny town of Johnstown got up early and went to the local church. Before the services started, the townspeople were sitting in their pews and talking about their lives, their families, etc. Suddenly, Satan appeared at the front of the church. Everyone started screaming and running for the entrance, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get away from evil incarnate. Soon, everyone was evacuated from the Church, except for one elderly gentleman who sat calmly in his pew, not moving....seemingly oblivious to the fact that God's ultimate enemy was in his presence. Now this confused Satan a bit, so he walked up to the man and said, "Don't you know who I am?" The man replied, "Yep, sure do."

Satan asked, "Aren't you afraid of me?" "Nope, sure ain't," said the man. Satan was a little perturbed at this and fumed, "Why aren't you afraid of me?" The man calmly replied, "Been married to your sister for over 48 years!"

Jerves, the Butler
A wealthy couple had planned to go out for the evening. The woman of the house decided to give their butler, Jerves, the rest of the night off. She said they would be home very late, and that he should just enjoy his evening. As it turned out, however, the wife wasn't having a good time at the party, so she came home early, alone. Her husband had to stay with the others since several of his important clients were there. As the woman walked into her house, she saw Jerves sitting by himself in the dining room. She called for him to follow her, and led him into the master bedroom. She then closed and locked the door. She looked at him and smiled. "Jerves," she said, "take off my dress." He did this carefully. "Jerves," she continued, "take off my stockings and garter." He silently obeyed her. "Jerves," she then said, "remove my bra and panties." As he did this, the tension continued to mount. She looked at him and then said, "Jerves, if I ever catch you wearing my clothes again, you're fired!"

Live Longer
A fellow went to the doctor who told him that he had a bad illness and only a year to live. So he decided to talk to his pastor. After the man explained his situation, he asked his Pastor if there was anything he could do. "What you should do is go out and buy a late '70 or early '80 model Dodge Pickup," said the Pastor. "Then go get married to the ugliest woman you can find, and buy yourselves an old trailer house in the panhandle of Oklahoma." The fellow asked, "Will this help me live longer?" "No," said the pastor, "but it will make what time you do have, seem like forever."

Three Travellers at the Farmhouse.
Three men were travelling in rural America when their car came to grief, whereupon they sought shelter at the nearest farmhouse. The farmer had two spare beds, and, of course, his daughters's, but since he had heard all of those stories he informed the men that one of them would have to sleep in the barn. One of them, a very polite Hindu mathematician, immediately volunteered and went out to the barn. A short time later there was a knock on the door, and, sure enough, there was the Hindu, very apologetically explaining that there were cows in the barn, and because of his religious convictions, he didn't think he could remain there. A second man, a conservative rabbi, now volunteered and went. But a short time later, there was a knock on the door. Sure enough, he too was back, explaining that since there was a pig in the barn, he too would be

quite uncomfortable out there. Whereupon the third man, a practicing lawyer, agreeably proceeded out to the barn. In a little while, there was a knock on the door. And when they went to answer it, sure enough, there were the cows and the pig.

The Flat Tire
Introductory Chemistry at Duke has been taught for about a zillion years by Professor Bonk (really), and his course is semi-affectionately known as "Bonkistry." He has been around forever, so I wouldn't put it past him to come up with something like this. Anyway, one year there were these two guys who were taking Chemistry and who did pretty well on all of the quizzes and the midterms and labs, etc., such that going into the final they had a solid A. These two friends were so confident going into the final that the weekend before finals week (even though the Chemistry final was on Monday), they decided to go up to UV (University of Virginia) and party with some friends up there. So they did this and had a great time. However, with their hangovers and everything, they overslept all day Sunday and didn't make it back to Duke until early Monday morning. Rather than taking the final then, what they did was to find Professor

Bonk after the final and explain to him why they missed the final. They told him that they went up to UV for the weekend, and had planned to come back in time to study, but that they had a flat tire on the way back and didn't have a spare and couldn't get help for a long time and so were late getting back to campus. Bonk thought this over and then agreed that they could make up the final on the following day. The two guys were elated and relieved. So, they studied that night and went in the next day at the time that Bonk had told them. He placed them in separate rooms and handed each of them a test booklet and told them to begin. They looked at the first problem, which was something simple about morality and solutions and was worth 5 points. "Cool" they thought, "this is going to be easy." They did that problem and then turned the page. They were unprepared, however, for what they saw on the next page. It said: 95 POINTS. WHICH TIRE?

Fish Tale
It was a cold winter day when an old man walked out onto a frozen lake, cut a hole in the ice, dropped in his fishing line and began waiting for a fish to bite. He was there for almost an hour without even a nibble when a young boy walked out onto the ice, cut a hole in the ice not to far from the old man and dropped in his fishing line. It only took about a minute and WHAM!, a Largemouth Bass hit his hook and the boy pulled in the fish. The old man couldn't believe it but figured it was just luck. But the boy dropped in his line and again within just a few minutes pulled in another one. This went on and on until finally the old man couldn't take it any more

since he hadn't caught a thing all this time. He went to the boy and said, "Son, I've been here for over an hour without even a nibble. You have been here only a few minutes and have caught about half a dozen fish! How do you do it?" To which the boy responded, "roo raf roo reep ra rums rrarm." "What was that?" The old man asked. Again the boy responded, "roo raf roo reep ra rums rarrm." "Look" said the old man, "I can't understand a word you are saying." So the boy spit into his hand and said, "You have to keep the worms warm!"

A Little Supper Joke
An elderly gentleman of 85 feared his wife was getting hard of hearing. So one day he called her doctor to make an appointment to have her hearing checked. The Doctor made an appointment for a hearing test in two weeks, and meanwhile there's a simple informal test the husband could do to give the doctor some idea of the state of her problem. "Here's what you do," said the doctor, "start out about 40 feet away from her, and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response." That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he's in the living room. He says to himself, "I'm about 40 feet away, let's see what happens." Then in a normal tone he asks, "Honey, what's for supper?" No response.

So the husband moved to the other end of the room, about 30 feet from his wife and repeats, "Honey, what's for supper?" Still no response. Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his wife and asks, "Honey, what's for supper?" Again he gets no response. So he walks up to the kitchen door, only 10 feet away. "Honey, what's for supper?" Again there is no response. So he walks right up behind her. "Honey, what's for supper?" "Damn it Earl, for the fifth time, CHICKEN!"

THE SHOPKEEPER
Once there was a Korean shopkeeper named Mr. Park. He lived in New York and had had a small corner store for 45 years. He worked very hard, 16 hours every day and he never took a holiday. One day, his daughter arrived at the store and found Mr. Park lying on the floor. He had had a heart attack! She called 911 and he was rushed to the hospital. He survived and was very weak, resting in the hospital. A day later he awoke and slowly looked around his hospital room. He asked in a weak voice, “Are you there, my dear wife?” “Yes,” she replied “I am here my dearest.”

Mr. Park asked, “Are you here, my oldest son?” “Yes, I am here.” replied his oldest son. “Are you here, my daughter?” Mr. Park asked in a faint voice. “Yes, father, I am here.” the daughter replied with a tear in her eye. “Are you here, my youngest son?” asked Mr. Park. “Yes, papa. I am here by your side.” said the baby of the family. Suddenly Mr. Park’s eyes grew big and threw off the bed covers and jumped up, screaming, “SO THEN, WHO IS WATCHING THE STORE!”

STEVIE WONDER
One day, Stevie Wonder (the blind singer), came to Toronto to perform. He was taken to his hotel room. He decided to take a nap but didn’t like the sheets, he wanted silk sheets. Rather than bother the hotel staff, he decided to go buy some himself. He asked his personal manager if there was a store nearby where he could buy silk sheets. The manager replied, “Yes, there is a big department store. It is called, Canadian Tire. I can go buy you some.” Stevie Wonder didn’t want to bother his manager. He said, “Just take me there, I can get them. I want the right kind.” So the manager took Stevie Wonder to the car and they drove to Canadian Tire. Upon arriving, Stevie Wonder got out of the car and his manager tried to help him. Stevie Wonder said, “Let me go alone, I can do it by myself.” Stevie Wonder went into the department store and went to the back. All the staff was looking at him, whispering and pointing. “Oh my god! It is Stevie Wonder!”

Stevie Wonder was feeling around and things were crashing to the floor, everything was falling everywhere as he searched. The store manager went to his employees and said, “Someone quick, go help Mr. Wonder!” A young teenager said , “I will”. He went to the back of the store where Stevie Wonder was busy crashing things to the floor and searching blindly. The young clerk tapped Stevie Wonder on the shoulder and asked, “May I help you Mr. Wonder? “ Stevie Wonder turned around, shook his head and said,

“NO, I’M JUST LOOKING”

The Spy Nigel Cavendish was a famous British spy. For over 20 years he went on important missions and stole important secrets from countries all over the world. However, his luck ran out. One day, he was captured by the Russian government. The British government said they didn’t know anything about him. He was taken to court and sentenced to death by firing squad.

On the day of his execution the weather was terrible. It was raining cats and dogs and there was a cold north wind blowing fiercely. The guards came to his prison cell and led him outside. They walked in the pouring, cold rain for almost half a kilometre. It was muddy, they were soaked and freezing to death. They put Nigel up against the wall and lined up to shoot him. They asked him if he had any last words to say. Nigel said, “What horrible men you are – to bring me out to be shot on such a horrible day.” One soldier looked up at the dark sky and said, “I DON’T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE COMPLAINING ABOUT! WE HAVE TO WALK BACK!” The Lion
One day a lion was walking through the jungle. He was young and very proud. He met a snake and said, “Who is the king of the jungle?” The snake said, “You are.” It did not make the lion angry and he smiled. Thirty metres later, he met a monkey and asked, “Monkey, Who is the king of the jungle?” The monkey said quickly, “You are.” The lion smiled and continued on his way. Next, the lion met a crocodile. He stopped and asked the crocodile, “Who is the king of the jungle?” The crocodile didn’t answer so the lion roared very loudly. “WHO IS THE KING OF THE JUNGLE?” The crocodile answered quickly, “You are.” The lion was satisfied and said, “Next time, answer quickly or I will eat you!”

Finally, the lion met an elephant. He stopped, looked angrily at the elephant and asked, “Elephant, who is king of the jungle?” The elephant picked up the lion with his trunk and dropped him to the ground. The elephant kicked the lion and then jumped on top of him. The lion was very surprised and hurt. He got up, shook the dirt off and shouted, “YOU DON’T HAVE TO GET ANGRY JUST BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW THE ANSWER!”

PICASSO (A True Story)

One day, a famous art collector was having a party. He had many famous paintings on his walls. He saw one man studying his favourite painting which was above his fireplace. He said to the man, “This is a real Picasso.”.

The man shook his head. He said, “I am an art expert. This definitely isn’t a real Picasso. It is a fake.” The art collector was shocked. He called up his agent and asked to have a personal appointment with Picasso. The meeting was arranged and he flew to Paris. He went directly to Picasso’s studio and after climbing the stairs, knocked on the door. Picasso shouted, “Come in!”. Picasso was busy painting a large painting. He quickly looked over his shoulder and asked, “What is it? I’m busy.” The art collector said, “Mr. Picasso I only have one quick question. Can you please look at this painting and tell me if it is a fake?” Picasso looked over his shoulder at it and quickly snapped, “It is a fake”. The collector thanked Picasso and left. One year later, the collector returned to Picasso’s studio. He walked up the stairs and knocked on the door. Picasso was busy painting and he angrily asked, “What is it?!” The art collector said, “Picasso, sorry to interrupt but I have just one question. Can you look at this painting and tell me if it is a fake?” Picasso looked over his shoulder and quickly replied, “It is a fake!” The man was shocked, he said, “It can’t be! I was here last year and saw you, yourself, painting this very painting!” Picasso turned around and said,

“Sometimes I paint fakes.”
