What’s In A Name?

Five Canadian guys arrived at the Italian border in an Audi Quatro. The customs agent stops them and says, “it’s illegal to put five people in an Audi Quatro.” “What do you mean, it’s illegal?” asked one of the Canadians. “Quatro means four.” said the official. “But that’s just the model name.” said the Canadian disbelievingly. “Look at the papers; it’s designed to seat five.” “You can’t pull that one on me.” replies the customs agent, “Quatro means four, and there are five people in your car. So you are breaking the law.” The Canadians are getting angry and demand to see the supervisor. “Sorry,” said the official. “He can’t come now. He’s busy with two guys in a Fiat Uno.”

Par For The Course

Two golfers, Bill, a recent first-time father, and Harry, a hospital administrator, were discussing the account that Harry had sent to Bill. “I mean,” said Bill, “$25 for the use of the delivery room. It’s just not right, you know that I didn’t get there on time, and my wife delivered the baby right on the front lawn.” Harry leaned over, took the bill and crossed out the offending entry. In its place, he wrote … $25 Green Fees.

Saying Grace

A couple had invited a few people over for dinner. At the table, the wife turned to their six-year-old daughter and said, “Would you like to say the blessing?” “I wouldn’t know what to say.” replied her daughter. “Just say what your mommy says.” With that, her daughter bowed her head and said, “Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people for dinner.”

Incompetent Criminals

In October, a Winnipeg, Manitoba, heist went wrong. Two thieves broke into a vacant house with the intent to steal a furnace. The Winnipeg Police said that neighbours reported the smell of natural gas. When officers responded, they found two unconscious people. The gas fumes rendered the two out cold after the gas line attached to the furnace became disconnected. The two were taken outside, where they came to and were interviewed by po- lice. Then, because this is Canada, they were released without charges. Or maybe the police decided that the would-be criminals’ “incompetence” was punishment enough!

Flush Them Out

Sergeant: “Private, I think the enemy soldiers are hiding in the woods. I want you to go in there and flush them out for us.”
Private: “Yes, sir! But if you see a bunch of guys running out the woods, don’t shoot the one in front, sir!”

I Cannot Tell A Lie…

These two young country boys, brothers, were knocking around one lazy summer day and thought it would be an excellent prank to push over the outhouse. They crept up from an advantageous direction like a couple of commandos pushed the outhouse over on one side and headed for the woods. They circled round and returned home an hour later from a completely different direction, thus, trying to divert suspicion from themselves. Upon returning, their father approached them with a switch in hand. He bellowed, “Did you two push the outhouse over this afternoon?” The older boy replied, “As learned in school, I cannot tell a lie. Yes, Father, we pushed over the outhouse this afternoon.” At this revelation, the farmer severely punished the two boys and sent them to bed without supper.

The two boys meekly approached the breakfast table in the morning and took their seats. Everything was quiet until their father finally said, “Have you two learned your lesson?”

“Sure, Dad!” said the big brother, “But, in school, we learned that George Washington admitted to HIS father that he’d chopped down a cherry tree, and he was forgiven because he told the truth.

BUT” said the farmer, “George’s DAD wasn’t in the cherry tree when he chopped it down.”
