  • Brian and four friends are heading along the French Riviera in their Audi Quattro convertible on their way to Italy.

At the border they are waved down by an Italian border official who says, “Very sorry. But you cannot enter Italy in this car. There are five of you on board. The car is an Audi Quattro and Quattro is four which means one of you has to get out.”

“What?” exclaimed Brian. “Quattro stands for 4 wheel drive!”

“Sorry but rules are rules. I cannot let you all into Italy.”

Brian is understandably very annoyed and says

“I’ll have to speak to your superior. This is totally unacceptable.”

“I’ll ask him to come over to talk to you when he’s finished with that couple over there, in their Fiat Uno.”

 

  • My friend drowned in a bowl of muesli. A strong currant pulled him in

This week’s offerings:

 

From the Uxbridge English Dictionary:

 

Claimant………..….an ant who’s had an accident at work.

Cocker spaniel…….at your peril.

 

The only cow in a small village in Tuscany stops giving milk, so the villagers buy one from Sicily for only 100 euros.

Because the cow is such a wonderful milker, they buy a bull to mate with the cow to produce more cows like her.

However, whenever the bull goes near the cow, the cow moves away. If he approaches from behind, she moves forward. If he approaches from the side she quickly moves away.

The villagers are upset and decide to talk to the village sage.

They tell him what’s happening: “Whenever the bull approaches our cow, she moves away. If he approaches from behind, she moves forward and if he approaches from the side she quickly moves to the side.”

The sage thinks about this for a minute and asks, “You didn’t buy this cow from Sicily by any chance did you?”

The people are dumbfounded. “Yes,” they say. “How on earth did you know that?”

The sage replies, with a heavy heart, “My wife is from Sicily.”

This week’s offerings:

 

From the Uxbridge English Dictionary:

 

WC2……….downstairs cloakroom.

Winnebago…….a horse with a bad back.

 

 

It’s St George’s Day and a hooded armed robber bursts into Lloyds Bank on the Bail and forces the cashier to stuff a shed-load of cash into his sack. As the robber goes to leave, one very brave customer grabs the robber’s hood and pulls it down, revealing his face.

Without hesitation the robber shoots the man stone dead. He then looks around the bank to see if anyone else has seen him. The cashier is looking straight at him and so he walks over and calmly shoots her dead too.

Everyone by now is very scared and looking down at the floor.

“Did anyone else see my face?” screams the robber.

After a few moments of silence and extreme tension all round, one elderly gentleman from Castle Hill Club, looking down at the floor, tentatively raises his hand and says, “I think my wife, standing here right next to me, may have caught a glimpse.”

ESSEX HURRICANE APPEAL 

A major hurricane (Hurricane Shazza) and earthquake measuring 5.8 on the Richter Scale hit Essex in the early hours of Tuesday with its epicentre in Basildon. Victims were seen wandering around aimlessly, muttering “Faaackinell.”

The hurricane decimated the area causing approximately £30 worth of damage. Several priceless collections of mementos from Majorca and the Costa Del Sol were damaged beyond repair. Three areas of historic burnt out cars were disturbed. Many locals were woken well before their giros arrived. Essex FM reported that hundreds of residents were confused and bewildered and were still trying to come to terms with the fact that something interesting had happened in Basildon.

One resident – Tracy Sharon Smith, a 15-year-old mother of 5 said, “It was such a shock, my little Chardonnay-Mercedes came running into my bedroom crying. My youngest two, Tyler-Morgan and Victoria-Storm, slept through it all. I was still shaking when I was skinning up and watching Trisha the next morning”

Apparently looting, muggings and car crime were unaffected and carried on as normal.

The British Red Cross has so far managed to ship 4,000 crates of Sunny Delight to the area to help the stricken locals. Rescue workers are still searching through the rubble and have found large quantities of personal belongings, including benefit books, jewellery from Elizabeth Duke at Argos and Bone China from Poundland.

 

HOW CAN YOU HELP ?

This appeal is to raise money for food and clothing parcels for those unfortunate enough to be caught up in this disaster.

  • Clothing is most sought after – items most needed include: Fila or Burberry baseball caps, Kappa tracksuit tops (his and hers), Shell suits (female), White sport socks, Rockport boots, and any other items usually sold in Primark.
  • Food parcels may be harder to come by but are needed all the same. Required foodstuffs include:

Microwave meals, Tins of baked beans, Ice cream, Cans of Colt 45 or Special Brew, 22p buys a biro for filling in the compensation forms, £2 buys chips, crisps and blue fizzy drinks for a family of 9, £5 buys B&H and a lighter to calm the nerves of those affected.

**Breaking news**

Rescue workers found a girl in the rubble smothered in raspberry alco-pop.

“Where are you bleeding from?” they asked. “Romford,” said the girl, “woss that gotta do wiv you?”

(Please don’t forward this to anyone living in Essex.)

This week’s offerings:

From the Uxbridge English Dictionary:

Sago…..…a very good way to start a race.

Sandy…….that’s convenient.

A store that sells new husbands has opened in Glasgow, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:

“You may visit this store ONLY ONCE! There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down, except to exit the building!”

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 – These men Have Jobs. She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 2 – These men Have Jobs and Love Kids. ‘That’s nice,’ she thinks, ‘but I want more.’

So she continues upward. The third floor sign reads:

Floor 3 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, and are Extremely Good Looking.’Wow,’ she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going. She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 4 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Good Looking and Help With Housework. ‘Oh, mercy me!’ she exclaims, ‘I can hardly stand it!’ Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:

Floor 5 – These men Have Jobs, Love Kids, are Drop-dead Gorgeous, Help with Housework, and Have a Strong Romantic Streak. She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor, where the sign reads:

Floor 6 – You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists solely as proof that women are impossible to please. Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

PLEASE NOTE:

To avoid gender bias charges, the store’s owner opened a New Wives store just across the street.

Floor 1 – Wives that Love Sex.

Floor 2 – Wives that Love Sex and have Money and like Beer.

The third, fourth, fifth and sixth floors have never been visited.

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
