Sick Day Excuse…

Saturday, September 23rd, 2006

— One man’s brilliant sick day excuse —

On one occasion, I had a valid reason, but lied anyway because
the truth was too humiliating. I simply mentioned that I had
sustained a head injury and I hoped I would feel up to coming in
the next day. By then, I could think up a beaut lie to explain
the bandage on my head.

The accident occurred mainly because I conceded to my wife’s
wishes to adopt a little kitten. Initially, the new acquisition
was no problem, but one morning, I was taking my shower after
breakfast, when I heard my wife, Deb, call out to me from the

“Ed! The garbage disposal is dead. Come and reset it. ”

“You know where the button is,” I protested through the shower

“Please, I’m scared!” she pleaded.

“What if it starts going and sucks me in?” (Pause)
“Come on, it’ll only take a second.”

So out I came, dripping wet and butt naked, hoping to make a
statement about how her cowardly behaviour was not without

I crouched down and stuck my head under the sink to find the

It is the last action I remember performing. It struck without
warning any or consideration for my inadequacy to defend myself.

No, it wasn’t the garbage disposal drawing me into its gnashing
metal teeth. It was our new kitten, clawing playfully at the
dangling objects she spied between my legs. She had been poised
around the corner and stalked me as I was otherwise engaged under
the sink. At precisely the second I was most vulnerable, she
leapt at the toys I unwittingly offered, and snagged them with
her needle-like claws.

I lost all rational thought to control orderly bodily movements,
while rising upwardly at a violent rate of speed, with the full
weight of a kitten hanging from my tackle.

Wild animals are sometimes faced with a “fight or flight”
syndrome. Men, in this predicament, choose only the “flight”
option. Fleeing straight up, the sink and cabinet bluntly impeded
my ascent; the impact knocked me out cold.

When I awoke, my wife and the paramedics stood over me. Having
been fully briefed by my wife, the ambulance officers pissed
themselves as they tried to conduct their work while suppressing
hysterical laughter.

At the office, colleagues tried to coax an explanation out of
me. I kept silent, claiming it was too painful to talk about.

“What’s the matter, cat got your tongue?

If they had only known.

God is sitting in Heaven when a scientist says to Him, “Lord, we
don’t need you anymore. Science has finally figured out a way to
create life out of nothing. In other words, we can now do what
you did in the ‘beginning.'”

“Oh, is that so? Tell me…” replies God.

“Well, ” says the scientist, “we can take dirt and form it into
the likeness of You and breathe life into it, thus creating man.”

“Well, that’s interesting. Show Me.”

So the scientist bends down to the earth and starts to mold the

“Oh no, no, no…” interrupts God,

Friendly Neighbours

Friday, September 22nd, 2006

A city councilman named Mark lives in a mountain view
neighbourhood. He had a beautiful view of the east mountains,
until a new neighbour purchased the lot below his house and

Apparently, the new home was 18 inches higher than the ordinances
would allow, so Mark, mad about his lost view, went to the city
to make sure they enforced the lower roof line ordinance.

Mark and his new neighbor had some great arguments about this as
you can imagine – not great feelings were exchanged.

The new neighbor had to drop the roof line – no doubt at great

Recently, Mark called the city council again and informed them
that his new neighbor had installed some vents on the side of his
home. Mark didn’t like the look of these vents and asked the city
to investigate.

When they went to Mark’s home to see the vent view, this is what
they found…

Blonde goes to the Doctor’s

Wednesday, September 20th, 2006

A gorgeous young redhead goes into the doctor’s office and said
that her body hurt wherever she touched it.

“Impossible!” says the doctor. “Show me.”

The redhead took her finger, pushed on her left breast and
screamed, then she pushed her elbow and screamed in even more.
She pushed her knee and screamed; likewise she pushed her ankle
and screamed. Everywhere she touched made her scream.

The doctor said, “You’re not really a redhead, are you?

“Well, no” she said, “I’m actually a blonde.”

“I thought so…” the doctor said. “Your finger is broken”

The End Is Near! …no really

Tuesday, September 19th, 2006

A priest and a pastor from the local churches are standing by the
road, pounding a sign into the ground, that reads:

The End is Near!
Turn Yourself Around Now
Before it’s Too Late!

As a car sped past them, the driver yelled,
“Leave us alone, you Religious nuts!”

From the curve they heard screeching tires and a big splash.

The priest turns to the pastor and asks,
“Do you think the sign should just say ‘Bridge Out’?”

What we are


Thursday, September 14th, 2006

An elderly woman walked into the Bank ofCanada one morning with a
purse full of money. She wanted to open a savings account and
insisted on talking to the president of the Bank because, she
said, she had a lot of money.

After many lengthy discussions (after all, the client is
always right) an employee took the elderly woman to the
president’s office.

The president of the Bank asked her how much she wanted to
deposit. She placed her purse on his desk and replied,
“$165,000”. The president was curious and asked her how shehad
been able to save so much money. The elderly woman replied that
she made bets.

The president was surprised and asked, “What kind of bets?”

The elderly woman replied, “Well, I bet you $25,000 that your
testicles are square.”

The president started to laugh and told the woman that it was
impossible to win a bet like that.

The woman never batted an eye. She just looked at the president
and said, “Would you like to take my bet?”

“Certainly”, replied the president. “I bet you $25,000 that my
testicles are not square.”

“Done”, the elderly woman answered. “But given the amount of
money involved, if you don’t mind I would like to come back at 10
o’clock tomorrow morning with my lawyer as a witness.”

“No problem”, said the president of the Bank confidently.

That night, the president became very nervous about the bet and
spent a long time in front of the mirror examining his testicles,
turning them this way and that, checking them over again and
again until he was positive that no one could consider his
testicles as square and reassuring himself that there was no way
he could lose the bet.

The next morning at exactly 10 o’clock the elderly woman arrived
at the president’s office with her lawyer and acknowledged the
$25,000 bet made the day before that the president’s testicles
were square.

The president confirmed that the bet was the same as the one made
the day before. Then the elderly woman asked him to drop his
pants etc. so that she and her lawyer could see clearly.

The president was happy to oblige.

The elderly woman came closer so she could see better and asked
the president if she could touch them. “Of course”, said the
president. “Given the amount of money involved, you should be
100% sure.”

The elderly woman did so with a little smile. Suddenly the
president noticed that the lawyer was banging his head against
the wall. He asked the elderly woman why he was doing that and
she replied, “Oh, it’s probably because I bet him $100,000 that
around 10 o’clock in the morning I would be holding the balls of
the President of the Bank of Canada !”

Are These Things Male or Female?

Wednesday, September 13th, 2006

What are these everyday items… male or female?

FREEZER BAGS: They are male, because they hold everything in, but
you can see right through them.

PHOTOCOPIERS: These are female, because once turned off, it takes
a while to warm them up again. They are an effective reproductive
device if the right buttons are pushed, but can also wreak havoc
if you push the wrong buttons.

TYRES: Tyres are male, because they go bald easily and are often
over inflated.

HOT AIR BALLOONS: Also a male object, because to get them to go
anywhere, you have to light a fire under their arse.

SPONGES: These are female, because they are soft, squeezable and
retain water.

WEB PAGES: Female, because they’re constantly being looked at and
frequently getting hit on.

TRAINS: Definitely male, because they always use the same old
lines for picking up people.

EGG TIMERS: Egg timers are female because, over time, all the
weight shifts to the bottom.

HAMMERS: Male, because in the last 5000 years, they’ve hardly
changed at all, and are occasionally handy to have around.

THE REMOTE CONTROL: Female. Ha! You probably thought it would be
male, but consider this: It easily gives a man pleasure, he’d be
lost without it, and while he doesn’t always know which buttons
to push, he just keeps trying…

Jonah was swallowed by a whale

Wednesday, September 13th, 2006

A little girl was talking to her teacher about whales. The
teacher said it was physically impossible for a whale to swallow
a human because even though it was a very large mammal its throat
was very small.

The little girl stated that Jonah was swallowed by a whale.

Irritated, the teacher reiterated that a whale could not swallow
a human; it was physically impossible.

The little girl said, “When I get to heaven I will ask Jonah.”

The teacher asked, “What if Jonah went to hell?”

The little girl replied, “Then you ask him.”
