This week’s offerings:

From the Uxbridge English Dictionary:

Quest…………….the Jonathan Ross family coat of arms.

Rev Counter…….a survey of vicars.

I recently signed on with a new doctor. After two visits and exhaustive blood tests, she said I was doing fairly well for my age (I am 78).
A little concerned about that comment, I said, ‘Do you think I’ll live to be 80?’
She asked, ‘Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer, wine or spirits?’
‘Oh no,’ I replied ‘I’m don’t do drugs, either!’
Then she asked, ‘Do you eat steaks and roast meats?’
‘I said, ‘Not much. Eating too much red meat is unhealthy!’
‘Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, boating, sailing, hiking, or cycling?’
‘No, I don’t,’ I said
She asked, ‘Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?’

‘’No,’ I said
She looked at me and said, ‘Then, why do you even give a damn?’

A little boy goes to his father and asks ‘Daddy, how was I born?’

The father answers, ‘Well, son, I guess one day you will need to find out anyway! Your Mother and I first got together in an online chat room.  Then I set up a date with her via e-mail and we met at a cyber-café. We sneaked into a secluded room and googled each other. There your mother agreed to a download from my hard drive. As soon as I was ready to upload, we discovered that neither of us had used a firewall, and since it was too late to hit the delete button, a little Pop-Up appeared nine months later. It said:

‘You’ve got Male!’

Kind regards
