    Re: The Joke Thread

    We are in DEEP trouble...

    The population of this country is approximately 60 million.

    32 million are retired. That leaves 28 million to do the work.

    There are 17 million in school or at Universities.

    Which leaves 11 million to do the work.

    Of this there are 8 million employed by the UK government.

    Leaving 3 million to do the work.

    1.2 million are in the armed forces preoccupied with killing Osama Bin-Laden, and fighting in Afghanistan .

    Which leaves 1.8 million to do the work.

    Take from that total the 0.8 million people who work for Local County Councils. And that leaves 1 million to do the work.

    At any given time there are 488,000 people in hospitals or claiming Invalidity Benefit.

    Leaving 512,000 to do the work.

    Now, there are 511,998 people in prisons.

    That leaves just two people to do the work.

    You and me.

    And there you are,

    Sitting on your backside,

    At your computer, reading jokes.

    Is it any wonder that we are in such a mess and that I am stressed out through trying to cope all on my own?

    Re: The Joke Thread

    EXERCISE FOR PEOPLE OVER 50

    Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side. With a 5-lb potato sack in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax. Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.

    After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato sacks.

    Then try 50-lb potato sacks and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (I'm at this level.)

    After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each sack.

    Re: The Joke Thread

    These two guys at a tropical resort are marvelling at
    how this other man seems to have a different gorgeous
    girl on his arm each night. One of the guys decides to
    go ask the gentleman his secret.

    The man tells them, "It's simple, really. Every day, I
    walk the beach in a skimpy Speedo bathing suit. But,
    before I go out, I put a couple potatoes in it! The
    girls are impressed and fall all over me!"

    The next day, the two guys decide to implement the plan.
    After walking the beach for ten minutes not one girl has
    approached them and all they hear is snickers after they
    walk by. Just then, the successful playboy comes running over.
    He pulls the two guys aside and politely tells them,
    "Gentlemen, the potatoes go in the front!"

    Re: The Joke Thread

    After the last one , here's a clean one

    An elderly gentleman had serious hearing problems for a number of years.

    He went to the doctor and the doctor was able to have him fitted for a set of hearing aids that allowed the gentleman to hear 100%

    The elderly gentleman went back in a month to the doctor and the doctor said, 'Your hearing is perfect. Your family must be really pleased that you can hear again.'

    The gentleman replied, 'Oh, I haven't told my family yet. I just sit around and listen to the conversations. I've changed my will three times!'

    Re: The Joke Thread

    Maurice, an 82 year-old man, went to the doctor to get a check-up.

    A few days later, the doctor saw Maurice walking down the street with a gorgeous young woman on his arm.

    A couple of days later, the doctor spoke to Maurice and said, 'You're really doing great, aren't you?'

    Maurice replied, 'Just doing what you said Doc, 'Get a hot mamma and be cheerful.''

    The doctor said, 'I didn't say that. I said, 'You've got a heart murmur, be careful.'

    FA Cup Final day. Wembley Stadium. It's Manchester United v Arsenal for what's expected to be the biggest game of the domestic season. And the stadium is packed to capacity having sold out months ago.

    Our man makes his way to his seat 10 minutes before kick off and sits down, noticing that the seat next to him is empty. At half time the seat is still empty and it truly is the only empty seat in the stadium, so he say's to the guy on the other side of the gap :
    "Can you believe someone's bought a ticket for this game and not turned up?"
    "Actually" says the guy, "it's my wife's seat. We get tickets for the FA Cup Final every year. We bought the tickets months ago, but sadly she can't accompany this year as she's passed away."
    "Sorry to hear that" says our man, "but it seems such a shame to have this seat empty when someone else could have enjoyed it. Surely you have a friend or relative who could have come with you?"
    "Nah." said the guy. "They're all at her funeral."

    Re: The Joke Thread

    A young man named Gordon bought a donkey from an old farmer for 100.00.

    The farmer agreed to deliver the donkey the next day, but when the farmer drove up he said, 'Sorry son, but I have some bad news... the donkey is on my truck, but unfortunately he's dead.

    Gordon replied, 'Well then, just give me my money back.'

    The farmer said, 'I can't do that, because I've spent it already.

    Gordon said, 'OK then, well just unload the donkey anyway.

    The farmer asked, 'What are you going to do with him?'

    Gordon answered, 'I'm going to raffle him off.'

    To which the farmer exclaimed, 'Surely you can't raffle off a dead donkey!'

    But Gordon, with a wicked smile on his face said, 'Of course I can, I just won't bother to tell anybody that he's dead.'

    A month later the farmer met up with Gordon and asked, 'What happened with that dead donkey?'

    Gordon said, 'I raffled him off, sold 500 tickets at two pounds a piece and made a huge, fat profit!!'

    Totally amazed, the farmer asked, 'Didn't anyone complain that you had stolen their money because you lied about the donkey being dead?'

    To which Gordon replied, 'The only guy who found out about the donkey being dead was the raffle winner when he came to claim his prize. So I gave him his 2 raffle ticket money back plus an extra 200, which as you know is double the going rate for a donkey, so he thought I was great guy!!

    Gordon grew up and eventually became the Chancellor of the Exchequer and then Prime Minister and no matter how many times he lied, or how much money he stole from the British voters, as long as he gave them back some of the stolen money, most of them, unfortunately, still thought he was a great guy.

    The moral of this story is that, if you think Gordon is about to do something for the everyday people of the country think again my friend, you'll be better off flogging a dead donkey.

    Re: The Joke Thread

    I don't want to spoil the fun, but can jokes be kept clean please. We don't always know the age of members who may be reading them.

    I have received a complaint about the last one posted & have therefore deleted it.

    A man was telling his neighbour, 'I just bought a new hearing aid. It cost me four thousand pounds, but it's state of the art. It's perfect.'
    'Really,' answered the neighbour.
    'What kind is it?'
    'Twelve thirty.'



    Three old guys are out walking.
    First one says, 'Windy, isn't it?'
    Second one says, 'No, it's Thursday!'
    Third one says, 'So am I. Let's go to the pub.'
