Flymekanikeren (rul ned for dansk version)
After every flight, pilots complete a gripe sheet which conveys to the mechanics problems encountered with the aircraft during the flight that need repair or correction. The form is a piece of paper that the pilot completes, and then the mechanics read and correct the problem.
They then respond in writing on the lower half of the form what remedial action was taken and the pilot reviews the gripe sheets before the next flight.
Never let it be said that ground crews and engineers lack a sense of humor. Here are some actual logged maintenance complaints and problems, as submitted by QUANTAS pilots, and the solution recorded by maintenance engineers. By the way, Quantas is the only major airline that has never had an accident.
P = The problem logged by the pilot.
S = The solution and action taken by the engineers.

Flytjek før afrejsen
Efter hver flyvning hos Quantas airlines udfylder piloten et stykke papir, som mekanikerne læser, hvorefter de retter op på problemet. De oplyser skriftligt på blankettens nederste halvdel hvilke udbedringer de har foretaget, og piloten gennemlæser rapporten inden næste flyvning.
Her er nogle virkelige registrerede klager over manglende vedligeholdelse og problemer, som Quantas piloter har indleveret, samt hvilken løsning vedligeholdelsespersonalet har noteret.
Forresten, så er Quantas det eneste større flyselskab, der aldrig har haft en alvorlig ulykke!

A man walks into a restaurant with a full-grown ostrich behind him.
The waitress asks for their orders. The man says, “A hamburger, fries and a coke,” and turns to the ostrich, “What’s yours?”
“I’ll have the same,” says the ostrich.
A short time later the waitress returns with the order. “That will be $9.40 please,” and the man reaches into his pocket and pulls out the exact change for payment.
The next day, the man and the ostrich come again and the man says, “A hamburger, fries, and a coke.” The ostrich says, “I’ll have the same.”
Again the man re aches into his pocket and pays with exact change. This becomes routine until, the two enter again.
“The usual?” asks the waitress. “No, this is Friday night, so I will have a steak, baked potato, and salad,” says the man. “Same,” says the ostrich.
Shortly the waitress brings the order and says, “That will be $32.62.” Once again the man pulls the exact change out of his pocket and places it on the table. The waitress can’t hold back her curiosity any longer. “Excuse me, sir. How do you manage to always come up with the exact change out of your
pocket every time?”
“Well,” says the man, “several years ago I was cleaning the attic and found an old lamp. When I rubbed it a Genie appeared and offered me two wishes. My first wish was that if I ever had to pay for anything, I would just put my hand in my pocket and the right amount of money would always be there.”
“That’s brilliant!” says the waitress. “Most people would wish for a million dollars or something, but you’ll always be as rich as you want for as long as you live!”
“That’s right. Whether it’s a gallon of milk or a Rolls Royce, the exact money is always there,” says the man.
The waitress asks, “But, sir, what’s with the ostrich?”
The man sighs, pauses, and answers, “My second wish was for a tall chick with a big ass and long legs who agrees with everything I say.”
Ånden i lampen
A husband and wife, out enjoying a round of golf, were about to tee off on the third hole, which was lined with beautiful homes. The wife hit her shot and the ball began to slice – her shot was headed directly at a very large plate glass window. Much to her surprise, the ball smashed through the window and shattered it into a million pieces.
They felt compelled to see what damage was done and drove off to see what happened. When they peeked inside the house, they found no one there. The husband called out and no one answered. Upon further investigation, they saw a small gentleman sitting on the couch with a turban on his head.
The wife asked the man, “Do you live here?”
“No, someone just hit a ball through the window, knocked over the vase you see there, freeing me from that little bottle. I am so grateful!” he answered.
The wife asked, “Are you a genie?”
“Oh, why yes I am. In fact, I am so grateful I will grant you two wishes, and the third I will keep for myself,” the man replied.
The husband and wife agreed on two wishes – one was for a scratch handicap for the husband, to which the wife readily agreed. The other was for an income of $1,000,000 per year forever.
The genie nodded his head and said, “Done!”
The genie now said, “For my wish, I would like to have my way with your wife. I have not been with a woman for many years, and after all, I made you a scratch golfer and a millionaire.”
The husband and wife agreed.
After the genie and wife were finished, the genie asked the wife, “How long have you been married?”
To which she responded, “Three years.”
The genie then asked, “How old is your husband?”
To which she replied, “31 years old”
The genie then asked, “And how long has he believed in this genie crap?”
Vejret og indianerne
It was autumn, and the Indians on the remote reservation asked their new Chief if the winter was going to be cold or mild. Since he was an Indian Chief in a modern society, he had never been taught the old secrets, and when he looked at the sky he couldn’t tell what the hell the weather was going to be. Nevertheless, to be on the safe side, he replied to his tribe that the winter was indeed going to be cold and that the members of the village should collect wood to be prepared.
Being a practical leader, after several days he got an idea. He went to the phone booth, called the National Weather Service and asked, “Is the coming winter going to be cold?”
“It looks like this winter is going to be quite cold indeed,” the Meteorologist at the weather service responded. So the Chief went back to his people and told them to collect even more wood in order to be prepared.
One week later he called the National Weather Service again. “Is it going to be a very cold winter?” he asked. “Yes,” the man at National Weather Service again replied, “it’s going to be a very cold winter.” The Chief again went back to his people and ordered them to collect every scrap of wood they could find.
Two weeks later he called the National Weather Service again. “Are you absolutely sure that the winter is going to be very cold?”
“Absolutely,” the man replied. “It looks like it’s going to be one of the coldest winters ever.”
“How can you be so sure?” the Chief asked. The weatherman replied, “The Indians are collecting firewood like crazy”.

A girl asks her boyfriend to come over Friday night and have dinner with her parents. Since this is such a big event, the girl announces to her boyfriend that after dinner, she would like to go out and make love for the first time. Well, the boy is ecstatic, but he has never had sex before, so he takes a trip to the pharmacist to get some condoms. The pharmacist helps the boy for about an hour. He tells the boy everything there is to know about condoms and sex.
At the cashregister, the pharmacist asks the boy how many condoms he’d like to buy, a 3-pack, 10-pack, or family pack. The boy insists on the family pack because he thinks he will be rather busy, it being his first time and all.
That night, the boy shows up at the girl’s parents house and meets his girlfriend at the door. “Oh, I’m so excited for you to meet my parents, come on in!”
The boy goes inside and is taken to the dinner table where the girl’s parents are seated. The boy quickly offers to say grace and bows his head.
A minute passes, and the boy is still deep in prayer, with his head down.
10 minutes pass, and still no movement from the boy.
Finally, after 20 minutes with his head down, the girlfriend leans over and whispers to the boyfriend, “I had no idea you were this religious.”
The boy turns, and whispers back, “I had no idea your father was a pharmacist.”
Kyllingen i mudderhullet – uoversættelig
On the farm lived a chicken and a horse, both of whom loved to play together. One day, the two were playing when the horse fell into a bog and began to sink. Scared for his life, the horse whinnied for the chicken to go get the farmer for help!Off the chicken ran, back to the farm. Arriving at the farm, he searched and searched for the farmer, but to no avail, for he had gone to town with the only tractor. Running around, the chicken spied the farmer’s new Z-3 series BMW. Finding the keys inside, the chicken sped off with a length of rope, hoping he still had time to save his friend’s life.Back at the bog, the horse was surprised, but happy, to see the chicken arrive in the shiny BMW, and he managed to get a hold of the loop of rope the chicken tossed to him. After tying the other end to the rear bumper of the farmer’s car, the chicken then drove slowly forward and, with the aid of the powerful car, rescued the horse!
Happy and proud, the chicken drove the BMW back to the farmhouse, and the farmer was none the wiser when he returned. The friendship between the two animals was cemented: best buddies, best pals.
A few weeks later, the chicken fell into a mud pit, and soon, he too, began to sink and cried out to the horse to save his life! The horse thought a moment, walked over, and straddled the large puddle. Looking underneath, he told the chicken to grab his “thing” and he would then lift him out of the pit. The chicken got a good grip, and the horse pulled him up and out, saving his life.
The moral of the story?
When you’re hung like a horse, you don’t need a BMW to pick up chicks.
Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now.
What happens if you get scared half to death twice?
Why do psychics have to ask you for your name?
Light travels faster than sound. That is why some people appear bright
until you hear them speak.
The things that come to those that wait are the things left by those who
got in first.
Inside every older person is a younger person wondering what happened.
Just remember – if the world didn’t suck, we would all fall off.
Eagles may soar, but weasels don’t get sucked into jet engines.
Everyone has a photographic memory. Some just don’t have film.
When everything is coming your way, you’re in the wrong lane

Hos St. Peter – altid en klassiker
Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates.
“In honor of this holy season,” Saint Peter said, “you must each possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven.”
The first man fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He flicked it on. “It represents a candle,” he said.
“You may pass through the pearly gates,” Saint Peter said.
The second man reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of keys. He shook them and said, “They’re bells.”
Saint Peter said, “you may pass through the pearly gates.”
The third man started searching desperately through his pockets and finally pulled out a pair of women’s panties.
St. Peter looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, “And just what do those symbolize?”
The man replied, “They’re Carol’s.”
A beautiful, well endowed, young lady went to her local pet store in search of an exotic pet. As she looked about the store, she noticed a box full of frogs. The sign said: “Sex Frogs! Only $20 each!
Money Back Guarantee! Comes with complete instructions.”
The girl excitedly looked around to see if anybody was watching her and whispered softly to the man behind the counter, “I’ll take one.”
The man packaged the frog and said, “Just follow the instructions carefully.”
The girl nodded, grabbed the box, and quickly went home. As soon as she closed the door to her apartment, she read the instructions thoroughly and carefully.
Then she followed the instructions to the letter:
- Take a shower.
- Splash on some nice-smelling perfume.
- Slip into a very sexy teddy.
- Crawl into bed and place the frog in the bed.
She quickly got into bed with the frog. To her surprise, nothing happened.
The girl was totally frustrated and quite upset. She reread the instructions and noticed that, at the bottom of the page, there was a note.
It said, “If you have any problems or questions, please call the pet store.”
So, the lady called the pet store. The man said, “I had some other complaints earlier today. I’ll be right over.”
Within five minutes, the man was ringing her doorbell.
The lady welcomed him and said, “See, I’ve done everything according to the instructions and the damn frog just sits there.”
The man, looking very concerned, picked up the frog, stared directly into its eyes, and sternly said, “Listen to me! I’m only going to show you how to do this one more time!”
A drunk was proudly showing off his new apartment to a couple of his friends late one night. When they made it to the bedroom, they saw a big brass gong next to the bed.
“What’s a big brass gong doing in your bedroom?” one of the guests asked.
“It’s not a gong. It’s a talking clock,” the drunk replied.
“A talking clock? Seriously?” asked his astonished friend.
“Yup,” replied the drunk.
“How’s it work?” the friend asked, squinting at it.
“Watch,” the drunk replied. He picked up the mallet, gave it an ear-shattering pound, and stepped back. The three stood looking at one another for a moment.
Suddenly, someone on the other side of the wall screamed, “You asshole, it’s three o’clock in the morning!”
At 85 years of age, Morris marries LouAnne, a lovely 25-year-old. Because her new husband is so old, LouAnne decides that on their wedding night, she and Morris are to have separate bedrooms. The newlywed is concerned that her new husband may overexert himself if they spend the entire night together.
After the wedding festivities, LouAnne prepares herself for bed, and for the expected “knock” on the door. Sure enough, the knock comes, the door opens, and there is her 85-year-old groom, ready for action. They unite as one. All goes well, whereupon Morris takes leave of LouAnne, and she prepares to go to sleep.
After a few minutes, LouAnne hears another knock on her bedroom door. It’s Morris! And he’s again ready for more action! Somewhat surprised, LouAnne consents to further coupling. When the newlyweds are done, Morris kisses LouAnne, bids her a fond good night, and leaves.
LouAnne is set to go to sleep again. However, after a few short minutes, there is another knock at her door, and there he is again. Morris, as fresh as a 25-year-old and ready for a bit more action. And again they enjoy one another.
As Morris is once again set to leave, the young bride says to him, “I am thoroughly impressed that at your age, honey, I’ve been with guys less than a third your age who were only good once! You’re a great lover, Morris.”
Morris, somewhat embarrassed, turns to LouAnne and says, “You mean I was here already?”

Jack wakes up with a huge hangover after attending his company’s Christmas Party. Jack is not normally a drinker, but the drinks didn’t taste like alcohol at all. He didn’t even remember how he got home from the party. As bad as he was feeling, he wondered if he did something wrong. Jack had to force himself to open his eyes, and the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins next to a glass of water on the side table. And, next to them, a single red rose!
Jack sits up and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed. He looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order, spotlessly clean. So is the rest of the house. He takes the aspirins,
cringes when he sees a huge black eye staring back at him in the bathroom mirror. Then he notices a note hanging on the corner of the mirror written in red with little hearts on it and a kiss mark from his wife in lipstick!:
“Honey, breakfast is on the stove, I left early to go get groceries to make you your favorite dinner tonight. I love you, darling!” He stumbles to the kitchen and sure enough, there is hot breakfast, steaming hot coffee and the morning newspaper. His son is also at the table eating. Jack asks, “Son. what happened last night?”
“Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk and out of your mind. You fell over the coffee table and broke it, and then you puked in the hallway, and got that black eye when you ran into the door.”
Confused he asked his son, “So, why is everything in such perfect order, so clean, I have a rose, and breakfast is on the table waiting for me?” His son replies, “Oh THAT!… Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take your pants off, you screamed, “Leave me alone, lady, I’m married!”
George Carlin’s Views on Aging
Do you realize that the only time in our lives when we like to get old is when we’re kids? If you’re less than 10 years old, you’re so excited about aging that you think in fractions.
“How old are you?” “I’m four and a half!” You’re never thirty-six and a half. You’re four and a half, going on five! That’s the key.
You get into your teens, now they can’t hold you back. You jump to the next number, or even a few ahead.
“How old are you?” “I’m gonna be 16!” You could be 13, but hey, you’re gonna be 16! And then the greatest day of your life . . you become 21. Even the words sound like a ceremony . . . YOU BECOME 21. YESSSS!!!
But then you turn 30. Oooohh, what happened there? Makes you sound like bad milk! He TURNED; we had to throw him out. There’s no fun now, you’re Just a sour-dumpling. What’s wrong? What’s changed?
You BECOME 21, you TURN 30, then you’re PUSHING 40. Whoa! Put on the brakes, it’s all slipping away. Before you know it, you REACH 50
and your dreams are gone.
But wait!!! You MAKE it to 60. You didn’t think you would!
So you BECOME 21, TURN 30, PUSH 40, REACH 50 and MAKE it to 60.
You’ve built up so much speed that you HIT 70! After that it’s a day-by-day thing; you HIT Wednesday!
You get into your 80s and every day is a complete cycle; you HIT lunch; you TURN 4:30; you REACH bedtime. And it doesn’t end there. Into the 90s, you start going backwards; “I Was JUST 92.”
Then a strange thing happens. If you make it over 100, you become a little kid again. “I’m 100 and a half!”
May you all make it to a healthy 100 and a half!!
A Scotsman was visiting a friend in the North Woods of Canada, both liked to hunt. They were hunting for deer when all of a sudden a moose popped up in front of them. It was so unexpected, neither of them had a chance to fire.
The Scotsman was shaken. “Hoot mon, wit in blazes was that?!”
“That was a moose,” the Canadian replied.
“What are ye saying, lad? A moose? Good Lord, I’d hate to see yer rats!”
The Way Children See Things!
While walking along the sidewalk in front of his church, our minister heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly made his collar wilt. Apparently, his 5-year-old son and his playmates had found a dead robin. Feeling that proper burial should be performed, they had secured a small box and cotton batting, then dug a hole and made ready for the disposal of the deceased. The minister’s son was chosen to say the appropriate prayers and with sonorous dignity intoned his version of what he thought his Father always said: “Glory be unto the Faaaather, and unto the Sonnn .. and into the hole he gooooes.”

Biler og computere
At a recent computer expo (COMDEX), Bill Gates reportedly compared the computer industry with the auto industry and stated, “‘If GM had kept up with technology like the computer industry has, we would all be driving $25.00 cars that got 1,000 miles to the gallon.’
In response to Bill’s comments, General Motors issued a press release stating:
If GM had developed technology like Microsoft, we would all be driving cars with the following
characteristics (and I just love this part):
- For no reason whatsoever, your car would crash…….. Twice a day.
- Every time they repainted the lines in the road, you would have to buy a new car.
- Occasionally your car would die on the freeway for no reason. You would have to
pull to the side of the road, close all of the windows, shut off the car, restart it, and
reopen the windows before you could continue. For some reason you would simply
- Occasionally, executing a maneuver such as a left turn would cause your car to shut
down and refuse to restart, in which case you would have to reinstall the engine.
- Macintosh would make a car that was powered by the sun, was reliable, five times
as fast and twice as easy to drive – but would run on only five percent of the roads.
- The oil, water temperature, and alternator warning lights would all be replaced by
a single ‘This Car Has Performed An Illegal Operation’ warning light.
- The airbag system would ask ‘Are you sure?’ before deploying.
- Occasionally, for no reason whatsoever, your car would lock you out and refuse to
let you in until you simultaneously lifted the door handle, turned the key and grabbed
hold of the radio antenna.
- Every time a new car was introduced car buyers would have to learn how to drive all
over again because none of the controls would operate in the same manner as the old car.
- You’d have to press the ‘Start’ button to turn the engine OFF.
Sande ord II

En ung ambitiøs yuppie besluttede sig endelig til at tage en ferie. Han bookede en plads på et krydstogt til Caribien, og han morede sig kosteligt. Lige indtil båden sank.
Manden fandt sig selv liggende på stranden af en ø uden andre mennesker, ingen forsyninger, ingenting. Kun bananer og kokosnødder.
En dag ca. 4 måneder senere ligger manden på stranden, da den smukkeste kvinde han nogensinde havde set kommer roende hen til ham.
Måbende spørger han hende: “Hvor kommer du fra, hvordan kom du herhen?”
“Jeg kom roende fra den anden side af øen”, svarede hun, “jeg endte på øen, da mit krydstogtskib sank”.
“Fantastisk”, sagde han, “du var virkelig heldig, at der skyllede en robåd op sammen med dig.”
“Nå, den her?” svarer hun, “Jeg lavede den af råmaterialer, som jeg fandt rundt omkring på øen. Årene kommer fra grene fra gummitræer. Bunden vævede jeg af palmeblade, og siderne og stævnen kom fra et eucalyptustræ.”
“Men, men æh, det er jo umuligt,” fremstammer manden, “du havde jo overhovedet ingen værktøj. Hvordan gjorde du det?”
“åh, det var skam ikke noget problem,” svarer kvinden, “på syd-siden af øen er der en masse sten. Jeg opdagede, at hvis jeg varmede dem op til en bestemt temperatur i min ovn, smeltede de til jern. Jeg brugte det til at lave værktøj.”
Manden var nu nærmest chokeret.
“Lad os ro over, hvor jeg bor”, foreslog hun. Efter et par minutters roning lagde hun båden til ved en lille kaj. Da manden kigger ud af båden, er han nær ved at falde ud af båden af forbløffelse.
Foran ham ligger en brolagt havegang, som fører op til en større bungalow malet i blåt og hvidt. Mens kvinden binder båden med et perfekt vævet hamp-reb, laver manden ikke andet end at kigge lamslået på huset.
Mens de går ind i huset, siger hun afslappet: “Det er ikke meget, men jeg kalder det mit hjem. Værs´go og sæt dig ned, vil du have noget at drikke?”
“Nej tak”, siger han, stadig forbløffet. “Jeg kan ikke klare mere kokos-juice.”
“Det er ikke kokos-juice”, svarer hun, “Jeg har et hjemmebrænderi. Hvad vil du sige til en Tequila Sunrise eller en Pina colada?”
Manden forsøger at skjule sin forundring og siger: “Sunrise, tak!”
De sætter sig ned på hendes sofa for at tale sammen. Efter de har fortalt hinanden deres historier, siger hun: “Jeg smutter lige i noget mere komfortabelt. Vil du gerne barbere dig og tage et bad? Der er en barbermaskine oppe ovenpå i badeværelset.”
Manden er nu holdt op med at tvivle på noget og går op på badeværelset. Der finder han en barberskraber med et ben-håndtag. To muslingeskaller er slebet til og fungerer som barberblade.
“Den kvinde er fantastisk,” tænker han ved sig selv, “gad vide, hvad det næste bliver?”
Da han kommer ned igen, finder han hende kun iført strategisk placerede vin-ranker, og hun dufter svagt af gardeniaer. Hun beder ham om at sætte sig ned ved siden af sig.
“Sig mig så,” siger hun forførende, mens hun flytter sig tættere på ham, “vi har været her i virkelig lang tid. Du har været ensom. Der er noget, som jeg virkelig tror, at du har lyst til at gøre lige nu… noget du har længtes efter i alle disse måneder… du ved…” Hun kigger ham dybt i øjnene.
Han kan ikke tro, hvad han hører: “Mener du…?”, han synker kraftigt, “Ka’ka’ kan jeg læse mine emails herfra…?”
For et par måneder siden annoncerede CIA efter en snigmorder.
Det er svært at blive godkendt til den type jobs, og ansøgerne testes grundigt inden ansættelsen.
Efter at alle ansøgerne havde gennemgået den indledende træning og var blevet checket grundigt,
var der tre ansøgere tilbage, to mænd og en kvinde.
De skulle så til en afsluttende test for at afgøre, hvem der skulle have jobbet.
Den første af mændene blev fulgt hen til en dør, og fik en revolver udleveret.
Vi er nødt til at kunne være sikre, at du kan adlyde dine instrukser uanset omstændighederne
sagde CIA agenten.
“Din kone sidder på en stol gå ind og skyd hende”
manden blev chokeret og sagde: det kan du ikke mene!
Jeg kunne da aldrig skyde min egen kone!
“ok” sagde CIA agenten. Så er du ikke den rigtige mand til jobbet.
Derefter blev den anden mand vist hen til døren og fik en revolver samt samme besked:
Manden så også lidt chokeret ud, men tog revolveren og gik ind i lokalet.
Der var helt stille i 5 minutter, og så kom han ud igen.
Han havde tårer i øjnene og sagde: jeg prøvede på at skyde hende, men jeg kunne ikke gøre det.
Jeg er nok ikke den rigtige mand til jobbet.
CIA agenten sagde: ? nej, det er du ikke? hent din kone og tag hjem.
Nu var det den tredje ansøgers tur, kvinden, der skulle testes.
Hun blev også vist hen til døren og fik en revolver samt samme besked
Din mand sidder derinde på en stol. Gå ind og skyd ham? kvinden tog revolveren og åbnede døren.
Endnu inden den var lukket helt efter hende, hørte CIA agenterne skud.
Det fortsatte, i alt 13 skud.
De hørte hvordan der blev skreget, inventar blev smadret, og der blev hamret på væggene.
Det blev ved i flere minutter, og så blev der helt stille. Døren gik langsomt op, og kvinden kom ud.
Hun tørrede sveden af panden og sagde:
“I kunne godt have fortalt mig, at der var løst krudt i revolveren.
Jeg var nødt til at tæve ham ihjel med stolen.”.

Several years ago, Andy was sentenced to prison. During his stay, he got along well with the guards and all his fellow inmates. The warden saw that deep down, Andy was a good person and made arrangements for Andy to learn a trade while doing his time.
After 3 years, Andy was recognized as one of the best carpenters in the local area. Often he would be given a weekend pass to do odd jobs for the citizens of the community…. and he always reported back to prison before Sunday night was over.
The warden was thinking of remodeling his kitchen and in fact had done much of the work himself. But he lacked the skills to build a set of kitchen cupboards and a large counter top which he had promised his wife. So he called Andy into his office and asked him to complete the job for him. But, alas, Andy refused. He told the warden, “Gosh, I’d really like to help you but counter fitting is what got me into prison in the first place”.

A group of chess enthusiasts had checked into a hotel, and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse.
“But why?” they asked, as they moved off.
“Because,” he said, “I can’t stand chess nuts boasting in an open foyer.”
Farmer Joe was in his car when he was hit by a truck. He decided his injuries from the accident were serious enough to take the trucking company (responsible for the accident) to court. In court the trucking company’s fancy lawyer was questioning farmer Joe. “Didn’t you say, at the scene of the accident, ‘I’m fine’?” said the lawyer.
Farmer Joe responded, “Well I’ll tell you what happened. I had just loaded my favorite mule Bessie into the….” “I didn’t ask for any details,” the lawyer interrupted, “just answer the question.”
“Did you not say, at the scene of the accident, ‘I’m fine’!”
Farmer Joe said, “Well I had just got Bessie into the trailer and I was driving down the road….”
The lawyer interrupted again and said, “Judge, I am trying to establish the fact that, at the scene of the accident, this man told the Highway Patrolman on the scene that he was just fine. Now several weeks after the accident he is trying to sue my client. I believe he is a fraud. Please tell him to simply answer the question.”
By this time the Judge was fairly interested in Farmer Joe’s answer and said to the lawyer, “I’d like to hear what he has to say about his favorite mule Bessie.”
Joe thanked the Judge and proceeded, “Well as I was saying, I had just loaded Bessie, my favorite mule, into the trailer and was driving her down the highway when this huge semi-truck and trailer ran the stop sign and smacked my truck right in the side. I was thrown into one ditch and Bessie was thrown into the other.
I was hurting real bad and didn’t want to move. However, I could hear ole Bessie moaning and groaning. I knew she was in terrible shape just by her groans.
Shortly after the accident a Highway Patrolman came on the scene. He could hear Bessie moaning and groaning so he went over to her. After he looked at her, he took out his gun and shot her between the eyes.
Then the Patrolman came across the road with his gun in his hand and looked at me. He said, “Your mule was in such bad shape I had to shoot her. How are you feeling?”
A chicken walks into a library, goes up to a librarian and says, “Book book book.” The librarian decides that the chicken wants a book so he gives the chicken a book and the chicken walks away. About ten minutes later the chicken comes back with the book, looking a bit agitated, saying, “Book book book.” The librarian decides the chicken wants another book so he takes the old book back and gives the chicken another book. The chicken walks out the door. Ten minutes later the chicken comes back again, very agitated, saying, “Book book book!” so quickly it almost sounds like one word. The chicken puts the book on the librarians desk and looks up – waiting for another book. This time the librarian gives the chicken another book and decides that something weird is happening. He follows the chicken out the door and into the park, all the way to the pond. In the pond is a frog sitting on a lily pad. The chicken gives the book to the the frog, who then says, “Reddit, reddit.”

A man is walking home alone late one foggy night… when behind him he hears:
Bump…. BUMP… BUMP….
Walking faster, he looks back and through the fog he makes out the image of an upright casket (en kiste) banging its way down the middle of the street toward him.
BUMP… BUMP… BUMP…
Terrified, the man begins to run toward his home, the casket bouncing quickly behind him.
FASTER… FASTER… BUMP… BUMP… BUMP…
He runs up to his door, fumbles with his keys, opens the door, rushes in, slams and locks the door behind him. However, the casket crashes through his door, with the lid of the casket clapping clappity-BUMP… clappity-BUMP… clappity-BUMP…
on his heels, the terrified man runs.
Rushing upstairs to the bathroom, the man locks himself in. His heart is pounding; his head is reeling; his breath is coming in sobbing gasps. With a loud CRASH the casket breaks down the door. Bumping and clapping toward him.
The man screams and reaches for something, anything, but all he can find is a bottle of cough syrup! Desperate, he throws the cough syrup at the casket…
The coffin stops.
En film-producer fik den idé at lave en actionfilm om klassiske komponister. Så han gik til 3 kendte action-skuespillere for at få dem med på idéen. Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude van Damme og Arnold Schwarzenegger syntes alle, det var en rigtig god idé, og indvilligede i at deltage i filmen. Produceren blev så glad, at han lod dem hver især selv vælge, hvem de ville spille i filmen.
Sylvester Stallone sagde: “I’ll be Mozart”.
Jean-Claude van Damme sagde: “I’ll be Beethoven”.
Arnold Schwarzenegger tænker sig om i et minuts tid, og siger så: “I’ll be Bach”.
