    A couple of jokes



    A secretary was leaving the office one Friday evening when she encountered Mr. Jones, the Human Resources manager, standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand.

    "Listen," said Mr. Jones, "this is important, and my secretary has already left. Can you make this thing work?"

    "Certainly," said the secreatry. She turned the machine on, inserted the paper, and pressed the start button.

    "Excellent, excellent!" said Mr. Jones as his paper disappeared inside the machine. "I just need one copy."





    A man was given the job of painting the white lines down the middle of a highway. On his first day he painted six miles; the next day three miles; the following day less than a mile. When the foreman asked the man why he kept painting less each day, he replied "I just can't do any better. Each day I keep getting farther away from the paint can."



    Two employees for the gas company were at a house call. The younger man said to the older one, "Geez, you're old!"
    "Yeah, that may be so, but I can still outrun you," replied the older employee.
    "How about a foot race to see if your'e right," said the younger employee.
    With that they start running at full speed around that block. The older man kept up with the younger man around the first corner, the second corner, the third corner. As they come up on the last corner, the younger man sees an eldery woman running as fast as her legs could carry her. Puzzled by this, they both stop ask her why she was running behind them. The old woman caught her breath and said, "Well, you were at my home checking my gas meter, and when I saw you running away, I figured I'd better run too!

    A plane was carrying a group of catholic pilgrims back from their pilgrimage, when both engines failed and the plane started hurtling to the ground. The bishop turned to a young priest and said "You'd better lead us in prayer Father!"
    The young priest looked blankly at him, the bishop shouted "Prayer Father! You know, that thing we do in Church every Sunday!?"
    "Oh yes the priest replied"
    He stood up took the microphone and said to the plane "Eyes down for a full house. Key to the door, 21..."

    Message Possibly the funniest story in a long while, this is a bricklayer's accident report, which was printed in the newsletter of the American Insurance Journal.



    This is supposedly a true story.



    Had this guy died, he'd have received a Darwin Award for sure.



    Dear Sir: "I am writing in response to your request for additional information in Block 3 of the accident report form. I put "poor planning" as the cause of my accident. You asked for a fuller explanation and I trust the following details will be sufficient.



    I was alone on the roof of a new six-story building. When I completed my work, I found that I had some bricks left over which, when weighed later, were found to be slightly more than 500 lbs. Rather than carry the bricks down by hand, I decided to lower them in a barrel by using a pulley, which was attached to the side of the building on the sixth floor.



    Securing the rope at ground level, I went up to the roof, swung the barrel out and loaded the bricks into it.Then I went down and untied the rope, holding it tightly to ensure a slow descent of the bricks. You will note in Block 11 of the accident report form, that I weigh
    135 lbs.



    Due to my surprise at being jerked off the ground so suddenly, I lost my presence of mind and forgot to let go of the rope. Needless to say, I proceeded at a rapid rate up the side of the building.



    In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel, which was now proceeding downward at an equally impressive speed. This explains the fractured skull, minor abrasions and the broken collarbone, as listed in section 3 of the accident report form.



    Slowed down slightly, I continued my rapid ascent, not stopping until the fingers on my right hand were two knuckles deep into the pulley. Fortunately by this time I had regained my presence of mind and was able to hold tightly to the rope, in spite of beginning to experience a great deal of pain. At approximately the same time, however, the barrel of bricks hit the ground and the bottom fell out of the barrel.



    Now devoid of the weight of the bricks, that barrel weighed approximately 50 lbs. I refer you again to my weight.



    As you can imagine, I began a rapid descent, down the side of the building. In the vicinity of the third floor, I met the barrel coming up. This accounts for the two fractured ankles, broken tooth and several lacerations of my legs and lower body.



    Here my luck began to change slightly. The encounter with the barrel seemed to slow me enough to lessen my injuries when I fell into the pile of bricks and fortunately, only three vertebrae were cracked.



    I am sorry to report, however, as I lay there on the pile of bricks, in pain, unable to move, I again lost my composure and presence of mind and let go of the rope and I lay there watching the empty barrel beginning its journey back down onto me. This explains the two broken legs



    I hope this answers your questions.

    Good one Jess, I managed 8/11!

    Best of all was the little trick at the end where it told me because of my results:
    "Your Projected Love Life: Not Bad! Expect your love life to bloom soon!"
    I have told my Archbishop at once and cleared my diary!
