A Joke for Christmas
Posted by Bones (Bones), 18 December 2003Just to bring a bit of festive laughter i thought i'd post a joke,.....
One particular Christmas season a long time ago, Santa
was getting ready for his annual trip, but there were
problems everywhere. Four of his elves got sick, and
the trainee elves did not produce the toys as fast as
the regular ones, so Santa was beginning to feel the
pressure of being behind schedule.
Then Mrs. Claus told Santa that her Mom was coming to
visit. This stressed Santa even more. Then he went to
harness the reindeer, he found that three of them were
about to give birth and two had jumped the fence and
were out, heaven knows where. More stress!!!
Then when he began to load the sleigh one of the
boards cracked and the toy bag fell to the ground and
scattered the toys. So, frustrated, Santa went into
the house for a cup of coffee and a shot of whiskey.
When he went to the cupboard, he discovered that the
elves had hid the liquor and there was nothing to
In his frustration, he accidentally dropped the coffee
pot and it broke into hundreds of little pieces all
over the kitchen floor. He went to get the broom and
found that mice had eaten the straw it was made from.
Just then, the doorbell rang and Santa cussed on his
way to the door. He opened the door and there was a
little Angel with a great big Christmas tree. The
Angel said, very cheerfully, "Merry Christmas Santa,
isn't it just a lovely day? I have a beautiful tree for you. Isn't it just a lovely tree? Where would you like me to stick it?"
Thus began the tradition of the little Angel on top of
the Christmas tree

Posted by fez (fez), 19 December 2003A Russian couple were walking down the street in Moscow one night, when the man felt a drop hit his nose.
"I think it's raining", he said to his wife.
"No, that felt more like snow to me", she replied.
"No, I'm sure it was just rain" he said.
Well, as these things go, they were about to have a major argument about whether it was raining or snowing.
Just then they saw a Communist Party official walking toward them.
"Let's not fight about it", the man said, "Let's ask Comrade Rudolph whether it's officially raining or snowing".
As the official approached, the man said, "Tell us, Comrade Rudolph, it it officially raining or snowing?"
"It's raining, of course", he replied, and walked on.
But the woman insisted: "I know that felt like snow!", to which the man
Wait for it............
"Rudolph the Red, knows rain, dear".

bear walks into a bar and asks the bartender for a beer. The bartender says, ''Sorry, we don't give beer to bears in bars.''
The bear replies, ''If you don't give me a beer, I'll eat that lady over there.''
The bartender says, ''Go ahead.''
So the bear eats the lady and asks for a beer. The bartender says, ''Sorry, we don't give beer to bears on drugs.''
''What do mean,'' says the bear. ''I'm not on drugs.''
''Yes, you are, that was the barbituate.''

Q. What do you call a dumb blonde behind a steering wheel?

Posted by ALEXDH (ALEXDH), 23 December 2003I know this is a bit rude but it made me laugh when i read it.
This is a real letter, which somebody posted to the Tax office in
IRELAND explaining why they had not paid Tax for several years.
This is alleged to be the actual text of a letter received by the
Revenue Commissioners from a Co. Longford farmer in reply to an
income Tax demand.
Your letter arrived this morning in an open envelope and it would
have given the son and myself pleasure had it not revived in us a
melancholy reflection of what has gone before. You say you thought
the account could have been settled long ago, and you could not
understand why it hadn't. Well, here are the reasons:
In 1987 I purchased a hay shed on credit. In 1988 I bought a
combine harvester, a manure spreader, two horses, a double barrel
shifter, two cows and ten razor back pigs, also on credit.
In 1989 the bloody hay shed burnt to the ground leaving not a damn
thing. I got no insurance either as the bloody premium had lapsed.
One of the horses went lame and I loaned the other one to my
brother who starved the poor bugger to death.
In 1990 my father died and my brother was put away when he tried
to marry one of his sheep named Hilda. A knacker got my daughter
pregnant and I had to pay him a grand to stop him becoming one of
In 1991 my son got the mumps which spread to his balls and he had
to be castrated to save his life. Later in the year I went fishing
on the Shannon and the bloody boat overturned, drowning two of my
sons, neither of them being the eunuch who was by now wearing his
sisters make-up and dresses. Not long after he emigrated to
America with the new parish priest. They are now married and
trying for children.
In 1992 my wife ran away with a pig jobber from Drumlish and left
me with new born twins as a souvenir and I had to get a
housekeeper, so I married her to keep down expenses. I had a hell
of a job getting her pregnant (to qualify for more children's
allowance). I went to see the doctor. He advised me to create some
excitement at the crucial moment so that night I brought my
shotgun to bed and when I thought the moment was right I leaned
out of bed and shot both barrels through the window, the wife shat
the bed, I ruptured myself, and the next morning I found I had
blown both doors off the barn, shot my best dairy cow and killed
the knackerer who was in the hay loft with my daughter trying to
get more money out of me, which he did because I had to pay for
his bloody funeral expenses.
The next year, 1993, someone cut the balls off my prize bull,
poisoned the water, and set fire to the house. I was bolloxed and
took to the drink and did not stop until all I had left was a
pocket watch and a weak bladder. Winding the watch and running for
a piss kept me busy for a time.
This year I took heart again and bought (on the hire purchase) a
bulldozer, tractor and trailer and a new bull. Then the Shannon
flooded and washed the bloody lot away, my second wife got V.D.
from a land inspector and my last surviving son died from wiping
his arse on a poisoned rabbit. I had to put down four dogs who
were worrying the sheep.
It surprises me very much that you say you will cause trouble if
I don't pay up. If you can think of anything I've missed I should
like to know about it. Trying to get money out of me will be like
trying to poke butter up a hedgehog's hole with a red hot needle.
I'm praying for a cloud of cat's shat to pass your way and I hope
it will fall on you and the ba*tards in your office who sent me
this final demand.
Yours for more credit
