Newsletter and jokes 4 March 2016

Hi all 
A small lineup, featuring two very different animated movies, one for the  
kiddies or families, and the other for adults on the art circuit. The 
adult one got an Oscar nom for best animated movie, while the kiddie one is  
expected to possibly set a new March Opening record for animated films in  
the USA. 
Also up is the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen, which has had a rough reception 
from the critics and may struggle at the box office. 
Speaking of Oscar, congrats to Leo for finally getting his statue, and to 
he and Alejandro González Iñárritu for pulling off the triple (Golden Globe, 
BAFTA and Oscar) for The Revenant. 
All the top Oscar movies are still on circuit, except Mad Max: Fury Road,  
which was actually the big winner (in terms of wins) on the night.  
And not forgetting The Razzies... where Fifty Shades of Grey was the runaway

Don Smith is on his deathbed and knows the end is near. His nurse, his 
wife, his daughter and two sons are with him. 
He asks for two witnesses to be present and a camcorder be in place to 
record his last wishes, and when all is ready he begins to speak: 
My son, "Bernie, I want you to take the Mayfair houses." 
My daughter "Sybil, you take the apartments over in the East end." 
My son, "Jamie, I want you to take the offices over in the City Centre." 
"Sarah, my dear wife, please take all the residential buildings on the 
banks of the river." 
The nurse and witnesses are blown away as they did not realize his 
extensive holdings, and as Don slips away, the nurse says, "Mrs. Smith, 
your husband must have been such a hard-working man to have acc*mulated all 
that property". 
Sarah replies, "Property? The lazy jerk delivered newspapers!" 
Laywers and clients ... this is a rerun, but still....

A man is walking home alone late one foggy night... when behind him he 
Bump... BUMP... 
Walking faster, he looks back and through the fog he makes out the image of 
an upright casket banging its way down the middle of the street toward him. 
Terrified, the man begins to run toward his home, the casket bouncing 
quickly behind him 
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 
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... and, 
(hopefully you're ready for this!!!) 
The coffin stops . 
I was walking down George Street the other day when I saw an Afghan bloke 
standing on a fifth floor balcony shaking a carpet. 
I shouted up to him, "What's up Abdul, won't it start?"
