Newsletter and jokes 8 June 2018

Hi all 
T. Rex is back on the big screen today. We're actually getting to see it 
two weeks ahead of the Yanks. 
Staying with the strong and mighty, another version of the Samson and  
Deliah tale graces our screens. 
This week's arthouse releae is Based on a True Story, from (um, ahem) Roman 
Polanski, while India supplies a gangster thriller in no less than  
three language versions. 
Early reviews for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom have been above average, 
and, given that it's been three years since the last film, it should do 
well here. 
On the previews side, there are previews at selected venues for Ocean's 8,  
which opens in two weeks time, next Thursday.  See the previews page and  
remember to book.

A man applying for a job at a Mildura lemon grove seemed to be far too 
qualified for the job. 
The foreman frowned and said, "I have to ask you this; have you had any 
actual experience in picking lemons?" 
The man replied: "Yes, I have. I've been divorced three times, 
I bought a Pajero once and I voted for Jacob Zuma." 
After Christmas, a teacher asked her young pupils how they spent their 
holiday away from school. 
One child wrote the following: 
We always used to spend the holidays with Grandma and Grandpa. 
They used to live in a big brick house but Grandpa got retarded and they 
moved to Arizona: now they live in a tin box and have rocks painted green 
to look like grass. They ride around on their bicycles and wear name tags 
because they don't know who they are anymore. 
They go to a building called a wreck center, but they must have got it 
fixed because it is all okay now, they do exercises there, but they don't 
do them very well. 
There is a swimming pool too, but they all jump up and down in it with hats 
At their gate, there is a doll house with a little old man sitting in it. 
He watches all day so nobody can escape. 
Sometimes they sneak out, and go cruising in their golf carts. 
Nobody there cooks, they just eat out. 
And, they eat the same thing every night --- early birds. 
Some of the people can't get out past the man in the doll house. 
The ones who do get out, bring food back to the wrecked center for pot 
My Grandma says that Grandpa worked all his life to earn his retardment and 
says I should work hard so I can be retarded someday too. 
When I earn my retardment, I want to be the man in the doll house. 
Then I will let people out, so they can visit their grandchildren. 
A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband. 
A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife. 
A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend. 
A successful woman is one who can find such a man... 
To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a 
To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand 
her at all. 
Married men live longer than single men do, but married men are a lot more 
willing to die... 
A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't. 
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does. 
A woman has the last word in any argument. 
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument. 
Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poking me in the ribs and 
cackling, telling me, "You're next."  
They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals. 
If you don't read the newspaper you are uninformed; if you do read the 
newspaper you are misinformed.
