Re: The Joke Thread

There is also the possibility that they could spill some beer into the pool, then they would have to drink the pool dry.

Gee,do you think so? They don't look like Kiwis to me?

Re: The Joke Thread

And nobody mentions the 240VAC line held up by the flip flops?

Don,
It was more fun to see who would bite first about that.
Perverse antipodean humour.
Cheers Mate,
Mac

Re: The Joke Thread

I wasn't going to be the first. No they don't look like Kiwis, if it was a 110 v hookup, I would say they are American Rednecks, there are still a few left in captivity, but they are a dying breed. What are the last word of a redneck? "Hold my beer, and watch this".

That obviously is a French or continental outlet. Brits on vacation in France?
Either way brings new meaning to "don't make waves! "

We have the same 'Darwin Award' candidates here, unfortunately not all go before reproducing.
Cheers,

My guess is they're Dutch. The plugs are of the (German) Schuko type, but the bottles look more like the ones you'd find in the Netherlands...

Re: The Joke Thread

The power strip is anchored bow and stern...it's not going to hold up to any kind of cross wind or current. Does Rocna make plugs?

Re: The Joke Thread

A Catholic priest, an Indian Doctor, a rich Chinese business man and an Aussie were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers in front of them.

The Aussie fumed, "What's with those blokes? We must have been waiting for 15 minutes"

The Indian doctor chimed in, "I don't know, but I've never seen such poor golf"

The Chinese business man called out, "Move it, Time is money"

The Catholic priest said "Here comes George the greens keeper. Lets have a word with him.. " Hello, George what's wrong with that group ahead of us? They're rather slow aren't they"

George the greens keeper replied, "Of yes that's a group of blind firemen They lost their sight in an explosion while saving our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for free anytime".

The group fell silent for a moment.

The Catholic priest said, "That's so sad I think I'll say a special prayer for them tonight".

The Indian Doctor said "Good idea. I'm going to contact my ophthalmologist colleagues and see if there's anything he can do for them."

The Chinese Business man replied, "I think I'll donate $50,000 to the Fire Brigade in honour of these brave souls"!.

The Aussie said, "Why can't they play at night?"

Re: The Joke Thread

New Style scam warning
Hope this has not been posted before

Scam Warning
WARNING:

A ‘Heads Up’ for those of us men who may be regular Mitre 10 customers. Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don’t be naive enough to think it couldn’t happen to you or your friends.


Here’s how the scam works.


Two seriously good-looking 20-21 year-old girls come over to your car as you are packing your shopping into the boot. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It is impossible not to look. When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say ‘No’ and instead ask you for a ride to another Mitre 10. You agree and they get in the back seat. On the way, they start undressing. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and starts crawling all over you, while the other one steals your wallet.


I had my wallet stolen November 4th, 9th, 10th, twice on the 15th, 17th, 20th & 24th. Also December 1st, 4th, twice on the 6th, three times just yesterday, and very likely this coming weekend.


Coops.
