Newsletter and jokes 16 March 2018

Hi all 
This week's big release is the reboot of the Tomb Raider series, partly 
shot here in Cape Town (and I'm still miffed that Alicia didn't drop in for 
Unfortunately the response so far from both critics and press has been 
very average, so we'll have to see how she does against Black Panther at  
the box office. 
The rest of the lineup is a bit of a mixed bag, ranging from Hollywood 
Horror via a family movie on the art circuit, to local offbeat Afrikaans 
children's horror (if there is such a thing... PG10-12 H?) which is already 
getting good rewards on the international film festival circuit. 
Lastly Bollywood rolls out the first film about a tax office raid. There 
is no truth to the rumour that South Africa will make the second such 
film, about a well-known Indian family and ex president. 
On the previews side there are previews All Day at selected venues next 
Wednesday for Gringo, starring Charlize and Sharlto ...

A middle-aged woman seemed sheepish as she visited her gynecologist. 
"Come now," coaxed the doctor, "you've been seeing me for years. There's 
nothing you can't tell me." 
"This one's kind of strange," the woman said. 
"Let me be the judge of that," the doctor replied. 
"Well," she said, "yesterday I went to the bathroom in the morning and 
heard a plink-plink-plink in the toilet. When I looked down, the water was 
full of pennies." 
"I see," commented the doctor calmly. 
"That afternoon, I went to the bathroom again and, plink-plink-plink, there 
were nickels in the bowl," the woman continued. 
"That night," she went on, "I went again, and plink-plink-plink, there were 
dimes. This morning, there were quarters!" 
"You've got to tell me what's wrong with me!" she implored. "I'm scared out 
of my wits!" 
The gynecologist put a comforting hand on her shoulder. "There, there, it's 
nothing to be scared about," he said. 
"You're simply going through the change!"

A mechanic who worked out of his home had a dog named Mace. Mace had a bad 
habit of eating all the grass on the mechanic's lawn, so the mechanic had 
to keep Mace inside. The grass eventually became overgrown.  
One day the mechanic was working on a car in the backyard and dropped his  
wrench, losing it in the tall grass. He couldn't find it for the life of  
him, so he decided to call it a day.  
That night, Mace escaped from the house and ate all the grass in the  
backyard. The next morning the mechanic went outside and saw his wrench  
glinting in the sunlight. Realizing what had happened he looked toward the  
heavens and proclaimed, 
"A grazing Mace, how sweet the hound, that saved a wrench for me! 
What have we learned in over two millenia? 
"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, 
public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be 
tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be 
curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, 
instead of living on public assistance." 
- Cicero - 55 BC 
So, evidently nothing..
