Newsletter and jokes 24 June 2016


 
Hi all 
 
Well it's holiday time and there's two big releases this week, and smaller 
releases on the art circuit. 
 
It has been 20 years since Independence Day, and now to celebrate the UK  
declaring Independence, we have the sequel. Also up, and very different, is 
the cop-buddy comedy Central Intelligence. 
 
On the business side of things, Finding Dory is doing exceptionally well, both 
here and overseas, and is set to see of Independence Day in the US. Not sure 
how things will play out here. 
 
I actually went to see Finding Dory last week, and was underwhelmed. So my 
opinion is out of synch with the majority of the press. Perhaps they saw  
something I missed, or maybe it works better in 3D than 2D, but compared to 
what I saw the same day last year (Inside Out), it didn't compete. YMMV :-) 
 
On the previews side, there are previews next week Wednesday and Thursday for  
Me Before You, see the previews page and remember to book.  
Also remember to take tissues :) 
 
Lastly, the DIFF is coming to an end with the awards being given out this week, 
and there is an "Afrikaans film evening" at Tygervalley on Thursday, where some 
popular films from recent years will be re-screened.

Special message from the Queen 
  
As you know, my dear people, for the last year the Royal House of Clinton 
has been tormented by questions about our handling of finances and 
subjected to tiresome questions about the tragic events in Benghazi--in the 
furthest regions of our empire.  And, sadly, also questions about my Royal 
e-mails. 
 
Nevertheless, I will not be daunted in my desire and commitment to serve 
you, the people.  For the next eight months I will be traveling among you 
as one of you, to listen to your deepest longings and needs.  I will be 
with you in your Wal-Marts and beside you in your Burger Kings.  I will 
drive with you down the busy interstate highways of our land, sharing your 
poverty and needs. 
 
How well I remember the days when the Duke of Arkansas and I were 
impoverished.  After we were expelled from our Washington Palace we hardly 
had two mansions to rub together.  We were so poor that we removed 
thousands of dollars of China, flatware, carpets and gifts from the 
Washington Palace just to survive. Shockingly, unscrupulous and ungrateful 
officials later forced us to return many of these treasures.  Now, happily, 
benefactors from around our empire have given me just enough for us to 
scr*pe by. 
 
During these difficult times, we had to cut back. When our daughter was 
married, we only had three million dollars to spend on her wedding. And, I 
remember our hopes, as she moved into her $10 million Manhattan apartment, 
that one day she would be able to move on from that humble abode to 
something more fitting.  After working for MSNBC for a starting salary of a 
mere $600,000 per year, what else could she do? So I now pay her $3,000,000 
a year to run the 'Foundation'. 
 
So, as I travel across our kingdom to meet you all, I will be listening and 
sharing with you.  Then, when the time for the royal election (Coronation) 
comes, I know I can count on you to crown me as your rightful monarch, with 
my assurance that I will continue King Obama's policies, and we can all 
live happily ever after. 
 
Your Queen-in-Waiting, 
 
Hilarity Rodham Clinton

Sean Connery gets a call from his agent one day. The agent goes "Sean, I've 
got you a job - starts tomorrow, early. You'll have to be there for 
10-ish". 
 
Sean furrows his brow and says "Tennish? ...... I don't even have a 
racket."

Earl and Bubba are quietly sitting in a boat fishing, chewing tobacco and 
drinking beer when suddenly Bubba says, "I think I'm gonna divorce my wife 
- she ain't spoke to me in over 2 months." 
 
Earl spits, sips his beer and says, "Better think it over ... women like 
that are hard to find."

Did you hear about the 83 year old woman who talked herself out of a 
speeding ticket by telling the young officer that she had to get there 
before she forgot where she was going? 
 
Makes perfectly good sense to me ...

A man was wandering around a fairground and he happened to see a 
fortune-teller's tent. Thinking it would be good for a laugh, he went 
inside and sat down. 
 
"Ah ..." said the woman, as she gazed into her crystal ball. "I see you are 
the father of two children." 
 
"That's what you think," said the man scornfully. "I'm the father of THREE 
children." 
 
The woman grinned and said, "No - that's what YOU think."
