Talking Why we prefer not to fly

NEW AIRLINE RULES

Flight Attendant: Welcome aboard Ala Carte Air, sir. May I see your ticket?

Passenger: Sure.

Attendant: You're in seat 12B. That will be $5, please!

Passenger: What for?

Attendant: For telling you where to sit.

Passenger: But I already knew where to sit.

Attendant: Nevertheless, we are now charging a seat locator fee of $5. It's the airline's new policy.

Passenger: That's the craziest thing I ever heard. I won't pay it.

Attendant: Sir, do you want a seat on this flight, or not?

Passenger: Yes, yes. All right, I'll pay. But the airline is going to hear about this.

Attendant: Thank you. My goodness, your carry-on bag looks heavy. Would you like me to stow it in the overhead compartment for you?

Passenger: That would be swell, thanks.

Attendant: No problem. Up we go, and done! That will be $10, please.

Passenger: What?

Attendant: The airline now charges a $10 carry-on assistance fee.

Passenger: This is extortion. I won't stand for it.

Attendant: Actually, you're right, you can't stand. You need to sit and fasten your seat belt. We're about to push back from the gate.

But, first I need that $10.

Passenger: No way!

Attendant: Sir, if you don't comply, I will be forced to call the air marshal. And you really don't want me to do that.

Passenger: Why not? Is he going to shoot me?

Attendant: No, but there's a $50 air-marshal hailing fee.

Passenger: Oh, all right, here, take the $10. I can't believe this.

Attendant: Thank you for your cooperation, sir. Is there anything else I can do for you?

Passenger: Yes. It's stuffy in here, and my overhead fan doesn't seem to work. Can you fix it?

Attendant: Your overhead fan is not broken, sir. Just insert two quarters into the overhead coin slot for the first five minutes.

Passenger: The airline is charging me for cabin air?

Attendant: Of course not, sir. Stagnant cabin air is provided free of charge. It's the circulating air that costs 50 cents.

Passenger: I don't have any quarters. Can you make change for a dollar?

Attendant: Certainly, sir! Here you go!

Passenger: But you've given me only three quarters for my dollar.

Attendant: Yes, there's a change making fee of 25 cents.

Passenger: For cryin' out loud. All I have left is a lousy quarter? What the heck can I do with this?

Attendant: Hang onto it. You'll need it later for the lavatory.

Talking more airline jokes

Susan that was a cracker, Dave I hope youre hanging in there, lets have some more of them jokes, because I know they help me through the day. That was the reason for joke corner in the first place to make us smile.

AN Australian boarded a flight from Dubai to Melbourne and, after he settled
himself in the window seat, a Muslim in his mufti was seated next to him on
the aisle. They nodded to each other politely and immersed themselves in
their newspapers. After the plane was airborne, the flight attendant came by
with the drinks trolley and asked the Aussie if he would care for a drink.
The Aussie folded his newspaper and happily asked for a rum and Coke, which
was placed before him along with a packet of peanuts. The flight attendant
turned to the Muslim and asked him if he would like a drink. He shook his
head in disgust and replied firmly, "I'd rather be savagely raped by a dozen
whores than let liquor touch my lips." Shocked to hear that, the Aussie
handed his drink back to the attendant and said, "'Me too... I didn't know
we had a choice."

XT rider spun around on his heels ,clicked his castanets and as he left the cafe said " put the cornflakes back in the box - dummy !"
Brilliant,Dodger! That took some effort to do, so well done! I liked the last line where the XT rider suddenly had castanets to click! We all laughed at this -it was so daft and bizarre! Are you the XT rider?do you have castanets? LOL!

Yep, no worries there Stu: just been in the mourning game for a while which has involved a considerable quantity of Guinness etc.
Still, life (and the black humour) goes on and it will prevail.

Thing is, I got my numbers mixed up a while back and I had about 900+ emails in the inbox - the vast majority are jokes - it has now grown to 1013 and increasing every day - it is so good to be popular!!

Susan's story is too close to the truth for comfort - should be censored for telling the home truths so blatantly! Nigel, where are you when we need you?!

Anyway I don't normally bother with posting jokes unless I am posting on some other thread, but maybe I will concentrate on this thread alone for a while and see how I get on with Nigel's work.

Catch you all later!

Wink Maybe a repeat?

Did we have the Bacon Tree? I never look back, so who knows:-

The Bacon Tree

Two Mexicans are stuck in the desert, wandering aimlessly and close to death. They are close to just lying down and waiting for the inevitable, when all of a sudden.......

'Hey Jose, do you smell what I smell. Ees bacon I is sure of eet.'

'Si, Luis eet smells like bacon to meee.'

So, with renewed strength, they struggle up the next sand dune, and there, in the distance, is a tree loaded with bacon.

There's raw bacon, dripping with moisture, there's fried bacon, back bacon, double smoked bacon... every imaginable kind of cured pig meat.

'Jose, Jose, we is saved. 'Eees a bacon tree.'

'Luis, are you sure ees not a meerage? We ees in the Desert don't forget.'

'Jose when deed you ever hear of a meerage that smell like bacon... ees no meerage, ees a bacon tree'.

And with that... Luis Races towards the tree. He gets to within 5 metres, Jose following closely behind, when all of a sudden, a machine gun opens up,and Luis is cut down in his tracks. It is clear he is mortally wounded but, a true friend that he is, he manages to warn Jose with his dying breath.

'Jose... go back man,you was right ees not a bacon tree.'

'Luis Luis mi amigo... what ees it?

'Jose... ees not a bacon tree...


Ees

Wink More of a Proverb...........

......... but its good (lots of folk will have heard this before) and it's classic:-

An elderly Chinese woman had two large pots, each hung on the ends of a
pole which she carried across her neck. One of the pots had a crack in it
while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of
water. At the end of the long walk from the stream to the house, the cracked
pot arrived only half full. For a full two years this went on daily, with
the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water.

Of course, the perfect pot was proud of its accomplishments, But the poor
cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that could
only do half of what it had been made to do. After 2 years of what it
perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream.


"I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes water to leak
out all the way back to your house." The old woman smiled, "Did you notice
that there are flowers on your side of the path, but not on the other pot's
side?" "That's because I have always known about your flaw, so I planted
flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you
water them."



"For two years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate
the table. Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this
beauty to grace the house."

Each of us has our own unique flaw. But it's the cracks and flaws we each
have that make our lives together so very interesting and rewarding. You've
just got to take each person for what they r and look for the good in
them.

SO, to all of my crackpot friends, have a great day and remember to smell
the flowers on your side of the path!

Wink Colonoscopy - been there, done that, got the hospital T shirt

If this joke was about a 1/2 English - 1/2 Irish Brit with a camera up his Bum, it would be about me!!


Thought you would enjoy these...THINGS SAID BY PATIENTS AT THEIR COLONOSCOPY!






TOO FUNNY - THE LAST ONE IS THE BEST.....



Colonoscopies are no joke, but these comments during the exam were quite humorous..... A physician claimed that the following are actual comments made by his patients (predominately male) while he was performing their colonoscopies:

1. 'Take it easy, Doc. You're boldly going where no man has gone before!

2. 'Find Amelia Earhart yet?'

3. 'Can you hear me NOW?'



4. 'Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?'

5. 'You know, in Arkansas , we're now legally married.'

6. 'Any sign of the trapped miners, Chief?'

7. 'You put your left hand in, you take your left hand out...'

8. 'Hey! Now I know how a Muppet feels!'

9. 'If your hand doesn't fit, you must quit!

10. 'Hey Doc, let me know if you find my dignity.'

11. 'You used to be an executive at Enron, didn't you?'

12. 'God, now I know why I am not gay.'

And the best one of

all..



13. 'Could you write a note for my wife, saying that you've checked and my head is not up there?'
