Re: The Joke Thread

In the greatest days of the British Empire, a new commanding officer was sent to a jungle outpost to relieve the retiring Colonel.
After welcoming his replacement and showing the usual courtesies (gin and tonic, cucumber sandwiches) that protocol decrees, the retiring Colonel said, "You must meet Captain Smithers, my right-hand man. God, he's really the strength of this office. His talent is simply boundless."

Smithers was summoned and introduced to the new CO, who was surprised to meet a toothless, hairless, scabbed and pockmarked specimen of humanity, a particularly unattractive man less than
three feet tall.
"Smithers, old man, tell your new CO about yourself."
"Well, sir, I graduated with honours from Sandhurst, joined the regiment and won the Military Cross and Bar after three expeditions behind enemy lines. I've represented Great Britain in equestrian events and won a Silver Medal in the middleweight division of the Olympics. I have researched the history of ...."
Here the Colonel interrupted, "Yes, yes, never mind that Smithers, the CO can find all that in your file. Tell him about the day you told the witch doctor to get f----d."

Re: The Joke Thread

OK... here's one of my hilarious guilty pleasures - reading text "auto correct" fails that people submit online. For example:
Popular Autocorrect Fails | Autocorrect Fail - Hilarious Auto Correct blunders and funny texts and messages from your mobile phone!

Re: The Joke Thread

#MeanwhileInRussia....

I'm sorry.

I simply did not know in which thread to enter this photo.
It seems that things have changed since I last lived in Russia....
Of course, that was back in the early nineties. {The 1990's. Clown.}

These are Russian Police Officers.

Now - think about that for a moment...

Okay - They aren't on riot control duty, just park patrol.



Still...

The ministry is imposing a June 25 deadline for officers to reacquaint themselves with the dress codes. So, apparently these lengths are not going to continue.

MeanwhileInUkraine... Ukrainian Air Force Cadets

Being politically non-correct, I'm wondering what would happen if the Russian Police Officers (depicted in a previous post) and the Ukraine Air Force Cadets (depicted here) were to somehow...

Well. T'would be better than the hostilities currently happening twixt the guys over there in the border zones.

Re: The Joke Thread

Are you old enough to remember the hula hoop?

Do you have fond memories of it?

Oh the memories


of those tender years


Well in case you forgot what it is,


and what a fun toy it was...


This should help your declining memory.
