Newsletter and jokes 2 December 2022


 
Hi all 
 
December looks to be "interesting", politically ... 
 
Only two new movies this week, both aimed at adults. First up is The Estate,  
a comedy in which a group of close family members do whatever it takes to  
get their hands on a dying matriach's wealth.  
 
Then we have a "Christmas" movie of sorts, the dark comedy/action/crime/ 
horror/thriller Violent Night, which, like the title itself, is pull of  
wordplay on yuletide themes. 
 
New this week 
 
* The Estate (16 LN) 
* Violent Night (16 LV)

If the English language made any sense, lackadaisical would have something 
to do with a shortage of flowers.

At work, I served a little girl some ice cream and her mum said, 
“Honey, what do you say?”  
 
And she looked me dead in the eyes and said, “I love you.”

The word vintage means different things to different people.  
 
To me, at 71, vintage means early 20th century. To my 43-year-old daughter,  
it’s the 1950s.  
 
So, when my 13-year-old grand-daughter wanted something vintage for  
Christmas, I had to ask what she considered vintage. 
 
“Oh, you know,” she said, “back when they used to communicate using paper.”

Every year when I get the Christmas lights out of the garage, I am struck  
by how little respect last year’s me has for this year’s me.

I laughingly threatened my 8-year-old with coal for Christmas and, without  
missing a beat, he replied, “You mean my future diamonds?”

As my husband read his post-op instructions, one directive stood out:  
“You must sleep without pillows for 48 hours.” 
 
He was appalled, protesting, “I’m not sleeping that long!”

Car trips with my wife are great, ’cause I get to listen to 10 seconds each 
of 400 songs she hates.

I am 32 years old and still deeply terrified that consuming anything 
from the hotel minibar will bankrupt my entire family somehow.

During the war my granddad survived mustard gas and pepper spray.  
 
He’s a seasoned veteran.

Overly honest LinkedIn confession: 
 
“Quite possibly the only person on LinkedIn who isn’t a ‘results-orientated 
team player with excellent interpersonal skills.’ ”

A weeping woman bursts into her hypnotist’s office.  
 
“I have been faithful to my husband for 15 years, but yesterday I had an  
affair!” she said, sobbing. “The guilt is killing me. I just want to forget  
that it ever happened!” 
 
The hypnotherapist sighs. “Not again ...”
