The Englishman lowered his newspaper, looks over his glasses and replied...

"How very sporting of your mother!"
I was on the channel ferry a few years ago and happened to come across this same Englishman. Thought I'd try to strike up a conversation.

So I asked him if he was a sporting man, perhaps liked tennis. He replied "Tried it once, didn't like it."

I thought about artistic interests, asked him if he'd been to the opera lately. "Tried it once, didn't like it."

Well, maybe sailing, had he ever sailed? "Tried it once, didn't like it."

At this point I was a bit discouraged, but thought that everyone likes to talk about their children, so asked if he had any.

...

"One."

Re: The New Joke Thread

If you like this joke and elect to retell it verbally, it is imperative that you employ the most outrageous accents possible. You must also play the part of the chief- this CANNOT be told sitting. On to the joke.



It's 1765 and an intense typhoon destroys a sailing vessel on a reef off the Coral Coast of Viti Levu.

In the morning, upon awakening on the beach, three men discover they are the sole survivors. They are a Frenchman, a Brit, and an American.

They aren't alone for long. Before they can gather their wits, a bunch of i-Taukei (Fijian) warriors discover them, bind them, and take them to the village.

In short order, it's clear something is up. Specifically, the quickly escalating party environment, and particularly the giant pots of boiling water suggest that the arrival of the shipwreck victims is cause for great celebration and a fabulous feast....if you know what I mean.

As dusk arrives the village is in full on party mode. The three palagi (white men) are brought before the big Ratu (chief), who is backed by more than 100 tatooed and sweaty warriors.

The Ratu looks the palagi up and down, sniffing them, touching them. Then he announces: "Me big chief. Me give you choice. Death or Bula Bula!" The warriors go wild. The surviving palagi are, rightfully so, terrified.

Ratu faces the Frenchman and repeats: "Me big chief. Me give you choice. Death or Bula Bula?"

The cringing and shaking French sailor squeaks out some unintelligible sounds. Ratu demands "What you say? What you want? Death or Bula Bula?"

Gathering some control, the Frenchman rationalizes to the chief. "I ama Frensch. I don't want to die, so you giva me this Bula Bula."

At this the big Ratu turns around facing his braves, and screams "BULA BULA" at which the warriors go into a frenzy chanting "BULA BULA. BULA BULA."

[Break break. if you are under 20 years old, stop reading.]

The i-Taukei warriors, all hundred plus, then line up in a conga line type pose, pounding feet back and forth. The first warrior takes the Frenchman, bends him over, and gives him Bula Bula. This continues on down the line until the natives have all had a turn, at which point the Frenchman is left crying and bleeding in the sand.

Now it is the American's turn. Big Ratu goes face-to-face with him, spittle on his lip and asks with a wry smile, "You want death or Bula Bula?"

The American sailor weeps. He knows there is no third choice, and escape is not an option. He mulls it over and finally whispers to the chief "I'm an American. Unlike the French, we don't do this Bula Bula thing. But I don't want to die, so....so....bula bula."

Again, the chief spins around to face his men, screams "BULA BULA" to which there is much rejoicing and merriment. The American experiences exactly what the Frenchman did (albeit, for the first time), and he too is left in the sand, alive but a broken man.

Finally, it is the Brit's turn. The Chief says to him: "Me big chief. Me give you choice. Death or Bula Bula!"

The British sailor stands tall. He stares down his Hannovarian beak, beady eyes blazing and counters: "I am Bri-ish. I am a subject of the Crown. I fear death not, and I will not be violated by you dirty, shittty, ugly people. GIVE ME DEATH!" and then spits upon the chief.

The chief bounces forward so they are toe-to-toe. He closes one eye to better focus into the face of an adversary. He cranes his neck out until they are nose to nose.

Ratu whispers..."are you sure?" To which the stolid Brit responds "YES! Give me death!"

Big Ratu turns around, facing the line of his perspiring, sex-frenzied warriors and declares "DEATH by BULA BULA!"

Re: The New Joke Thread

So while 'Ol George was ordering up another round of beer I took a stroll towards the gents. Here's some bits and bobs of conversation overheard down at the pub...


... Trumpanzees? Snowflakes? I say NO to the PC culture! NO!!
So I bought a smartphone....
***

... was chatting via Skype with a friend in Scotland about the latest with US Pres. Donald Trump & DPRK leader Kim Jong-Un. My friend noted that the US might be trying to make up for being late for the last two World Wars by being very punctual or even early this time around....
***

... one of the most wonderful things in life is to wake up and enjoy a cuddle with somebody. Unless you are in prison...
***

.... do'ya know which country’s capital is the fastest growing? Ireland’s.

Every year it’s Dublin.
***

... so I was at the lawyer's, right? And he's reading my Uncle Bob's "Last Will and Testament", right? Says he's leaving me the entire contents of his safe deposit box! The key is hidden under a rock somewhere in Canada. And for his ex-wife, my Aunt Jane, he says he's leaving the rest of his estate provided that within six months of the reading of the will she woe and marry whoever is the then current Ayatollah of Iran. Uncle Bob... Am I right?...
***

... my ex-wife still misses me. But her aim is steadily improving.
***

... and apparently taking a day off is not something you should do when you work for a calendar company...
***

... c'mon - seriously - jokes about unemployed people are not funny.
They just don't work.
***

I have the "Swiss Champ" which looks like a thigh-bruising, pocket-busting lump - but it's actually not that clunky and all you need is duct tape to complete the ensemble.

A man born with a second "man part" was a pretty arrogant dude. Every time I talked to him, he was just.. too cocky.

Re: The New Joke Thread

Did you hear about the guy who was born with five of them!?

His Doctor asked him, "how do your pants fit?"





The guy replied "Like a glove!"

Re: The New Joke Thread

Have you heard the one about the bloke born with, not two, but three, gonads?

Of course, he had a supremely deep voice, but initially wasn't aware of his good fortune, until a routine annual medical disclosed nature's benificence.

Over-excited, and eager to share the brilliant news, he told the cab driver on his journey home from the doctor:

[basso profundo] "Between you and me mate, we've got five balls!"

The cab driver immediately replied:

[falsetto] "Gee, you must have a cluster!"

[It works better if you say it out loud following the voice types described above....]

Re: The New Joke Thread

Two blondes are filling up at a petrol station and the first blonde says to the second, "I bet these awful fuel prices are going to go even higher." The second blonde replies, "Won't affect me, I always put in just $10 worth."
------------------------------ ------------------------------ ---------
One day, Jill's husband came home from the office and found her sobbing convulsively.
"I feel terrible," she told him. "I was pressing your suit and I burned a big hole in the seat of your trousers."
"Forget it," consoled her husband. "Remember that I bought an extra pair of trousers for that suit." "Yes, and it's lucky for you that you did," said Jill, drying her eyes. "I used them to patch the hole."
------------------------------ ------------------------------ ----------------
Two blondes were walking down the road and the first blonde said,
"Look at that dog with one eye!"
The other blonde covers one of her eyes and says, "Where?"
------------------------------ ------------------------------ ----------------
A blonde decided to redecorate her bedroom. She wasn't sure how many rolls of wallpaper she would need, but she knew that her blonde friend from next door had recently done the same job and the two rooms were identical in size.
"Buffy," she said, "How many rolls of wallpaper did you buy for your bedroom?"
"Ten," said Buffy.
So the blonde bought the ten rolls of paper and did the job, but she had 2 rolls leftover.
"Buffy," she said. "I bought ten rolls of wallpaper for the bedroom, but I've got 2 leftover!" "Yes," said Buffy. "So did I."
------------------------------ ------------------------------ ----------------
A blonde bought two horses and could never remember which was which. A neighbour suggested that she cut off the tail of one horse, which worked great until the other horse got his tail caught in a bush.
The second horse's tail tore in the same place and looked exactly like the other horse's tail. Our blonde friend was stuck again. The neighbour then suggested that she notch the ear of one horse, which worked fine until the other horse caught his ear on a barbed wire fence. Once again, our blonde friend couldn't tell the two horses apart. The neighbour then suggested that she measure the horses for height. When she did that, the blonde was very pleased to find that the white horse was 2 inches taller than the black one.
------------------------------ ------------------------------ ----------------
The executive was interviewing a young blonde for a position in his company. He wanted to find out something about her personality so he asked, "If you could have a conversation with any person, living or dead, who would that be?" The blonde quickly responded, "The living one."

Re: The New Joke Thread

And then there was the executive who was hiring a new personal assistant. The HR walla brought in three applicants, and gave them a simple test.

The first was asked " what is two and two"? "Why, four, of course" was the answer.

The second's answer was " Twenty-two".

The third said "Well, it could mean the sum, which is four, or it could mean the combination, which is twenty-two".

Later the HR guy was explaining the results: The first is straight forward and literal, a solid worker. The second is able to think outside of the box and see alternative possibilities..., someone who can add imagination to the job. And the third, she has both attributes and can see the need for adaptability and imagination as well as the mundane. Now, which one do you want?

Boss: "The blond with the big boobs"

HR folks have a tough row to hoe!

Yep, worked for a years in a place just like that. The boss said we didn't need a HR consultant, he could decide for himself.

He always chose the applicant with the shortest skirt.

You can just guess how well THAT policy worked out.

Yep, the boss's wife took over the interview process...

I wish. She had brains, not a short skirt.

No, the skirts got shorter and, oddly enough, the length of time before they were fired also got shorter.

I think there was pretty well a direct mathematical relationship.

Not sure how that ties in with George Taylor's Hemline Index. Might be an interesting thesis for someone to pursue.
