Hi all

Sorry a bit late this week, been a bit hectic.

Anyway, this week sees the next in the summer blockbuster season releases
with a rebooted Aliens series gracing the screens. Stateside they're 
expecting it to dethrone Guardians of the Galaxy from the number 1 slot.
Speaking of which, it's odd how different movies play in different markets
... in the USA Guardians has already grossed more than F&F 8 after 2 weeks,
even though F&F8 has been out for 5 weeks. Meanwhile here, F&F8 is already 
second on the all-time list and should surpass F&F7 which is at number 1.

Apart from Aliens, we have a biopic on Ray Krok, who built McDonald's into
the empire that it is, and a faith-based drama.

For the kiddies we have an animated film and the next episode in the Diary
of a Wimpy Kid series.

Lastly Bollywood offers up a rom-com and a look at the trials and 
tribulations of getting your kid into a good school... seems to be a 
universal problem :-)

An oldie, but still a sweet story.

As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by 
a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He 
had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper's 
cemetery in the New South Wales back country. As I was not familiar with 
the backwoods, I got lost and, being a typical man, I didn't stop for 

I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently 
gone and the hear*e was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers 
and crew left and they were eating lunch. I felt badly and apologized to 
the men for being late.

I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was 
already in place. I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play.

The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played 
out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends. I played 
like I've never played before for this homeless man. And as I played 
"Amazing Grace", the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all 
wept together. When I finished, I packed up my bagpipes and started for 
my car. Though my head was hung low, my heart was full.

As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, "I never 
seen anything like that before, and I've been putting in septic tanks 
for twenty years."


A frustrated husband in front of his laptop :
Dear google, please do not behave like my wife...
Please allow me to complete my sentence before you start guessing & 

A married man's prayer: Dear God, You gave me childhood, You took it 
You gave me youth, You took it away.
You gave me a wife ... Its been years now, just reminding You.


A blonde holding a baby walks into a drug store and asks the clerk if 
she can use the store's baby scale.
"Sorry, ma'am," says the clerk. "Our baby scale is broken. But we can 
figure the baby's weight if we weigh mother and baby together on the adult
scale, and then weigh the mother alone, 
and subtract the second number from the first."
"Oh, that won't work," says the blonde.
"Why not?" asks the clerk.
"Because," she answers, "I'm not the mother - I'm the aunt."


A father texts his son:
"My Dear Son,
"Today is a day you will treasure for all the days of your life.
"My best love and good wishes.
"Your Father."

His Son texts back:
"Thanks Dad. But the wedding isn't actually until tomorrow!"

His Father replies:
"I know."


The Government is a lot like Mensa: if you make the simplest program, or 
decision complicated enough, People assume that it is viable, valuable, 
and significant.

We know that just isn't true, and simple Logic Baffles Brains

Once, years ago, there was a Mensa Convention in San Francisco.

(Mensa, as you know, is a international organization for people who have an 
IQ of 132 or higher.)

Several of the Mensa members went out for lunch at a local cafe. 
When they sat down, one of them discovered that the salt shaker contained 
pepper & the pepper shaker was full of salt.

How could they swap the contents of the two bottles without spilling any & 
using only the implements at hand? Clearly this was a job for Mensa 

The group debated the problem, presented ideas & finally came up with a 
brilliant solution involving a napkin, a straw & an empty saucer.

They called the waitress over, ready to dazzle her with their solution. 
"Miss", they said," We couldn't help but notice that the pepper shaker 
contains salt & the salt shaker - " but before they could finish, the 
waitress interrupted, "Oh! sorry about that".

She leaned over the table, unscrewed the caps of both bottles & switched 

There was dead silence at the Mensa table.

Kinda reminds you of the government, doesn't it.

Don't confuse IQ and education with common sense


A minister decided that a visual demonstration would add emphasis to his
Sunday sermon.

Four worms were placed into four separate jars.

The first worm was put into a container of alcohol.
The second worm was put into a container of cigarette smoke.
The third worm was put into a container of chocolate  syrup.
The fourth worm was put into a container of good clean soil.

At the conclusion of the sermon, the Minister reported the following 

The first worm in alcohol . . . . ..  Dead.
The  second worm in cigarette smoke . . Dead!
Third worm in chocolate syrup . . . Dead!.
Fourth worm in good clean soil . . Alive?!

So the Minister asked the congregation,
"So, my friends? What did you learn from this demonstration?"

Maxine, sitting in the back, quickly raised her hand and said . .
"As long as you drink, smoke and eat chocolate, you won't have worms!"

That pretty much ended the service!

Today is International Disturbed People's Day.


The Irish.... (well it makes a change from Blonde jokes...)

Bloke at a horse race whispers to Paddy next to him,
"Do you want the winner of the next race?"
Paddy replies "No tanks, oi've only got a small yard."

Paddy and Mick found 3 hand grenades and decided to take them to the 
police station.
Mick "What if one explodes before we get there?"
Paddy: "We'll lie and say we only found two!"

A coach load of paddies on a mystery tour decided to run a lottery to 
guess where they were going.....
The driver won.

Paddy finds a sandwich with two wires stickin out of it.
He phones the police and says "Bejasus I've just found a sandwich dat 
looks like a bomb."
The operator asks, "is it tickin?
Paddy says "No, oi tink it's beef"

Mick walks into Paddy's barn and catches him dancing naked in front of a 
Mick says, "Oi Paddy, what ya doing?"
Paddy says, "Well me and Mary haven't been getting on in the bedroom 
lately & the therapist recommended I do something s*xy to a tractor."

The Irish have solved their own fuel problems.
They imported 50 million tonnes of sand from the Arabs and they're going 
to drill for their own oil...

Paddy says to Mick, "Christmas is on a Friday this year"
Mick says "Let's hope it's not the 13th."

Paddy's in the bathroom and Murphy shouts to him. "Did you find the 
Paddy says, "Oi did, but it's for dry hair and I've just wet mine."
