A young ventriloquist is touring the clubs and one night he's doing
a show in a small club in Manchester.
With his dummy on his knee, he's going through his usual dumb
blonde jokes when a blonde woman in the 4th row stands on her chair and
starts shouting:
"I've heard enough of your stupid blonde jokes. What makes you
think you can stereotype women that way? What does the colour of a
person's
hair have to do with her worth as a great human being? It's guys like
you
who keep women like me from being respected at
work and in the community and from reaching our full potential as a
person...;Because you and your kind continue to perpetuate
discrimination
against not only blondes, but women in general... and all in the name
of
humour!"

The ventriloquist is embarrassed and begins to apologise, when the
blonde yells, "You stay out of this, mister! I'm talking to that
little f**ker on your knee!"

A Blonde suspects her boyfriend of cheating on her, so She goes out and
buys a gun. She goes to his apartment unexpectedly and sure enough, she
opens the door and finds him in the arms of a redhead. Well, the blond is
angry, She opens her purse to take out the gun but as she does so, she is
overcome with grief. She takes the gun and puts it to her head. The boyfriend
yells "No, honey, don't do it." The blond replies "Shut up stupid! You're
next."

Yesterday, scientists for Health Canada suggested that men should take a
look at their beer consumption, considering the results of a recent analysis
that revealed the presence of female hormones in beer. The theory is that
drinking beer makes men turn into women. To test the finding 100 men were
fed 6 pints of beer each. It was then observed that 100% of the men gained
weight, talked excessively without making sense, became overly emotional,
couldn't drive, failed to think rationally, argued over nothing, and refused
to apologize when wrong. No further testing is planned.

A man had great tickets for the FA Cup Final. As he sits down,
another man comes down and asks if anyone is sitting in the seat
next to him. "No," he says. "The seat is empty."

"This is incredible!" said the man. "Who in their right mind
would have a seat like this for the FA Cup Final, the biggest
sporting event , and not use it?"

He says, "Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. My wife was
supposed to come with me, but she passed away. This is the first
FA Cup Final we haven't been to together since we got married."

"Oh ... I'm sorry to hear that. That's terrible. But couldn't you
find someone else -- a friend or relative, or even a neighbour --
to take the seat?"

The man shakes his head.

"No. They're all at the funeral."

A boat docked in a tiny Mexican village. An American tourist complimented

the Mexican fisherman on the quality of his fish and asked how long it took

him to catch them.

"Not very long," answered the Mexican.

"Well, then, why didn't you stay out longer and catch more?" asked the
American.

The Mexican explained that his small catch was sufficient to meet his needs

and those of his family.

The American asked, "But what do you do with the rest of your time?"

"I sleep late, fish a little, play with my children, and take a siesta with

my wife. In the evenings, I go into the village to see my friends, have
a
few drinks, play the guitar, and sing a few songs...I have a full life."


The American interrupted, "I have an MBA from Harvard and I can help you!

You should start by fishing longer every day. You can then sell the extra

fish you catch. With the extra revenue, you can buy a bigger boat. With
the
extra money the larger boat will bring, you can buy a second one and a third
one and so on until you have an entire fleet of trawlers.
Instead of selling your fish to a middle man, you can negotiate directly

with the processing plants and maybe even open your own plant. You can then

leave this little village and move to Mexico City, Los Angeles, or even
New
York City! From there you can direct your huge enterprise."

"How long would that take?" asked the Mexican.

"Twenty, perhaps twenty-five years," replied the American.

"And after that?"

"Afterwards? That's when it gets really interesting," answered the American,
laughing. "When your business gets really big, you can start selling stocks

and make millions!"

"Millions? Really? And after that?"

"After that you'll be able to retire, live in a tiny village near the coast,
sleep late, play with your children, catch a few fish, take siestas with

your wife, and spend your evenings drinking and enjoying your friends."
