Little April

Little April was not the brightest student in her Sunday school class normally
she slept through it
One day her teacher tried to catch her out while she slept to see if she was paying
attention tell me april who created the universe?
when april didnt stir little johnny who sat next to her took a pen and jabbed her
in the rear
GOD ALMIGHTY shouted little april and the teacher said very good and little april
went back off to sleep
a while later the teacher asked april "who is our lord and saviour" but little april
didnt stir from her slumber so once again little johnnie jabbed her in the rear with his pen
JESUS CHRIST shouted little april and the teacher said very good and little april went
off to sleep again
then the teacher asked april a third question"what did eve say to adam after the birth of thier
23rd child and again johnnie jabbed her with the pen
this time little april jumped up and shouted
IF YOU STICK THAT F###ING THING IN ME ONE MORE F###ING TIME
I'LL BREAK IT IN HALF AND STICK IT UP YOUR F###IG A##SE.

the teacher fainted!

Old lady

An old lady gets pulled over for speeding...

Old Woman: Is there a problem, Officer?


Officer: Madam, you were speeding.

Old Woman: Oh, I see.

Officer: Can I see your licence please?

Old Woman: I'd give it to you but I don't have one.

Officer: Don't have one?

Old Woman: Lost it, 4 years ago for drink driving.

Officer: I see...Can I see your registration document please?

Old Woman: I can't do that.

Officer: Why not?

Old Woman: I stole this car.

Officer: Stole it?

Old Woman: Yes, and I killed and hacked up the owner.

Officer: You what!

Old Woman: His body parts are in plastic bags in the boot if you want to see?

The officer looks at the woman and slowly backs away to his car and calls for back up. Within minutes 5 police cars circle the car. A senior officer slowly approaches the car.

Officer 2: Madam, could you step out of your vehicle please!

The woman steps out of her vehicle.

Old woman: Is there a problem?

Officer 2: One of my officers told me that you have stolen this car and murdered the owner.

Old Woman: Murdered the owner?

Officer 2: Yes, could you open the boot
of your car, please?

The woman opens the boot, revealing nothing but an empty boot.

Officer 2: Is this your car, madam?

Old Woman: Yes, here is the registration document.


The officer is quite stunned.

Officer 2: One of my officers claims that you do not have a driving licence.

The woman digs into her handbag and hands her license to the officer.

The officer examines the licence. He looks quite puzzled.

Officer 2: Thank you madam, one of my officers told me you didn't have a licence, that you stole this car, and that you murdered and hacked up the owner.

Old Woman: I bet the liar told you I was speeding, too.


Don't Mess With Old Ladies.

2. You have never been to The Tower of London or Madame Tussauds but love Brighton

4. Hookers and the homeless are invisible.

5. You step over people who collapse on the Tube.

6. You believe that being able to swear at people in their own language makes you multilingual.

7. You've considered stabbing someone.

8. Your door has more than three locks.

9. You consider eye contact an act of overt aggression.

10. You call an 8' x 10' plot of patchy grass a garden.

11. You consider Essex the "countryside".

12. You think Hyde Park is "nature".

13. You're paying £1,200 a month for a studio the size of a walk-in wardrobe and you think it's a "bargain".

14. Shopping in suburban supermarkets and shopping malls gives you a severe attack of agoraphobia.

15. You pay more each month to park your car than most people in the UK pay in rent.

16. You pay £15 without blinking for a that cost the bar 28p.

17. You actually take fashion seriously.

18. You have 27 different take-away menus next to your telephone.

19. The UK west of Heathrow is still theoretical to you.

20. You're suspicious of strangers who are actually nice to you.

21. Your idea of personal space is no one actually physically standing on you.

22. £50 worth of groceries fit in one plastic bag.

23. You have a minimum of five "worst cab ride ever" stories.

24. You don't hear sirens anymore.

25. You've mentally blocked out all thoughts of the city's air/water quality and what it's doing to your insides.

26. You live in a building with a larger population than most towns.

27. Your cleaner is Portuguese, your grocer is Somali, your butcher is Halal, your deli man is Israeli, your landlord is Italian, your laundry guy is Filipino, your bartender is Australian, your favourite diner owner is Greek, the watch seller on your corner is Senegalese, your last cabbie was African, your newsagent is Indian and your local English chippie owner is Turkish.

28. You wouldn't want to live anywhere else until you get married.

29. You roll your eyes and say 'tsk' at the news that someone has thrown themselves under a tube train.

30. Your day is ruined if you don't get a copy of Metro on the way to work.


31. You happily pay £5.00 for a litre of bottled water in a restaurant whilst moaning that petrol is mostly tax, though it still costs only a quarter of the price of the water you are drinking.

32. You support Manchester United.

Wink One for leap year (& leap day, if there is such a thing)

Nothing to do with Feb 29th, but "what the"


MURPHY'S LESSER KNOWN LAWS
1. Light travels faster than sound. This is why some people appear bright until you hear them speak.

2. He who laughs last, thinks slowest.

3. Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

4. Those who live by the sword, get shot by those who don't.

5. Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

6. The 50-50-90 rule: Anytime you have a 50-50 chance of getting something right, there's a 90% probability you'll get it wrong.

7. If you lined up all the cars in the world end to end, someone would be stupid enough to try to pass them, five or six at a time, on a hill, in the fog.

8. If the shoe fits, get another one just like it.

9. The things that come to those who wait will be the things left by those who got there first.

10. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach a man to fish and he will sit in a boat all day, drinking .

11. Flashlight: A metal tube used to store dead batteries.

12. The shin bone is a device for finding furniture in a dark room.

13. A fine is a tax for doing wrong. A tax is a fine for doing well.

14. When you go into court, you are putting yourself in the hands of 12 people who weren't smart enough to get out of jury duty.

Wink Lights

I urgently needed a few days off work,

But, I knew the Boss would not allow me to take leave.
I thought that maybe if I acted "Crazy"
Then he would tell me to take a few days off.
So, I hung upside-down on the ceiling and made funny noises.

My co-worker (who's blonde) asked me what I was doing.
I told her that I was pretending to be a light bulb, So, that the Boss
might think I was "Crazy" and give me a few days off.
A few minutes later the Boss came into the office and asked, "What in
the name of good GOD are you doing ?"

I told him I was a light bulb.

He said, "You are clearly stressed out."
Go home and recuperate for a couple of days."

I jumped down and walked out of the office...
When my co-worker (the blond) followed me, the Boss asked her, "...And
where do you think you're going?!"

She said,

"I'm going home too, I can't work in the dark!!

I am completely and unashamedly proud to be a Londoner and each and every point on the list is UNDENIABLY true.

Who NEEDS to know anywhere west of Heathrow or North of Watford when you live in the absolute CENTRE of the universe!?

However, I must object to point 32. which I find deeply offensive. My Portuguese cleaner told me, that Arsenal is the winning team. And we Londoners only ever support the winners.

Dolly loses out

Dolly Parton and Queen Elizabeth
Dolly Parton

and Queen Elizabeth

die on the same day and they both go before an Angel to find out if they'll be admitted to Heaven.

Unfortunately, there's only one space left that day, so the angel must decide which of them gets in. The Angel asks Dolly if there's some particular reason why she should get into Heaven.

Dolly takes off her top and says, 'Look at these, they're the most perfect breasts God ever created, and I'm sure the angels will be pleased to see them every day, for eternity.'

The Angel thanks Dolly, and asks Her Majesty the same question.

The Queen takes a bottle of Perrier out of her purse,

shakes it up, and gargles. Then, she spits into a toilet and pulls the lever.
The angel chuckles and says,'Okay, Your Majesty, you may go in.'

Dolly is outraged and asks, 'What was that all about?
I show you two of God's own perfect creations and you turn me down. She spits into a commode and gets in! Would you explain that to me?'

'Sorry, Dolly,' says the angel,

but, even in Heaven, a royal flush

beats a pair - no matter how big they are.

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
