An old man turned up at the offices of a large company one afternoon.

"Hello I'm Brian Turner's uncle;

I've come to ask if he can have the rest of the afternoon off so I can take him to the big match."

"I'm afraid he's not here" came the reply

"we already gave him the afternoon off to attend your funeral"

Shania's issued a statement in response to this WW announcement:

"I have not had a baby named Choo Choo Twain, and, what's more, never the Twain shall meet!"

Anyway, I'd best me making tracks. I'll get my coach.

I bet that other Twain wasn't so chuffed when an announcement was made about him either:

"The report of my death was an exaggeration." (Mark Twain, 1897)

An 80-year-old Italian goes to the doctor for a check-up.

The doctor is amazed at what good shape the guy is in and asks, 'how do you stay in such great physical condition?'

I'm Italian and I am a golfer,' he says, 'and that's why I'm in such good shape. I'm up well before daylight and out golfing up and down the fairways. I have a glass of vino, and all is well.'

"'Well' says the doctor, 'I'm sure that helps, but there's got to be more to it. "How old was your Father when he died?"

"Who said he was dead?"

The doctor is amazed. 'You mean you're 80 years old and your Father's still alive.
"How old is he?"

'He's 100 years old, in fact he golfed with me this morning, and then we went to the topless beach for a walk and had a little vino and that's why he's still alive. He's Italian and he's a golfer, too.'

'Well,' the doctor says, 'that's great, but I'm sure there's more to it than that. How about your Father's Father? How old was he when he died?'

'Who said my Nonno's dead?'

Stunned, the doctor asks, 'You mean you're 80 years old and your grandfather's
still living! Incredible, how old is he?'

'He's 118 years old,' says the old Italian golfer.

The doctor is getting frustrated at this point, 'So, I guess he went golfing with you this morning too?'

'No, Nonno couldn't go this morning because he's getting married today.'

At this point the doctor is close to losing it. 'Getting married? Why would a 118 year- old guy want to get married?'

'Who said he wanted to?

Before i got married I would just drive aimlessly around car parks....

because I had nobody to point out the empty spaces.

Man walks into a pub. The pub's dead. Not a soul in there. He orders a pint and the Landlord sighs, gets up, pours him a beer then sits down and puts his head back in his hands.
'Hard times?' says the fella.
'God yeh' says the landlord. Bought the pub a few weeks back and I'm nearly bankrupt already. Tried it all. Quiz nights, bands, buy one get one free. The lot. No matter what I try I cant get a customer. I'm at my wits end. If it carries on like this I'm finished.'

Your man has a think and says, 'Calm down I'll be back in an hour.'

Sure enough an hour later your man walks back in and he has a tin under one arm and a duck under the other.
The Landlord looks bewildered.
'Watch' say the fella.

He puts the tin on the bar and then put the duck on the tin. Lo and behold the duck starts tap dancing like a good un. Little flappy feet going like the clappers.

'Gosh, thats amazing!' says the Landlord.

'Just put him in the window and I'll be back in a week' says your man

Sure enough. a week later the fella walks by the pub but now its a different place. It's packed to the rafters, theres 100s in there. Beer flying around and all come to see the amazing tap dancing duck. Pushing his way through the crowds the fella finally gets to the bar.

He get's the attention of the landlord. 'How's it going?' he says. 'Better?'

The landlord is white as a sheet, there's bags under his eyes and he looks like a dead man walking.
'Well' he says. First I have to thank you. You've saved my business.I owe you everything.'

'Well, what's the problem?'

'I haven't slept for a week! The beer is selling, business is good but I'm at my wits end
The Mrs has left me, I haven't slept for 6 nights now. I can't stop the bloody duck tap dancing. All day. All Night. Every Night. Tap tap tap tap bloody tap. It's killing me. It's torture.'

'Oh my goodness' says the fella. 'I forgot to tell you how to make him stop'

He picks the duck up, puts it under one arm, picks the tin up, takes the lid off the tin and

blows out the candle.

A cab driver reaches the pearly gates. St. Peter looks him up in his Big Book and tells him to pick up a gold staff and a silk robe and proceed into Heaven.

Next in line is a preacher. St. Peter looks him up in his Big Book, furrows his brow and says

"OK, we'll let you in, but take that cloth robe and wooden staff"

The preacher is shocked and replies "But I am a man of the cloth. You gave that cab driver a gold staff and a silk robe. Surely I rate higher than a cabbie!"

St. Peter responds matter-of-factly

"This is Heaven and up here, we are interested in results

When you preached, people slept --

When the cabbie drove his taxi, people prayed"

My mate Tommy went on a date with a blonde woman last night.

"Do you have any kids?" she asked

"Yes" Tom replied "I have one child that's just under two"

She said "I might be blonde, but I know how many one is"

I'm taking up scuba diving on the cheap.

Instead of using a cylinder I'll be using a bag of Walker's crisps -

there's enough air in it to stay submerged for 2 hours...

I nearly got knocked off my bike by a council salt wagon last night.

"You dozy bleedin' twit" I shouted, through gritted teeth.

I dropped a tenner yesterday and chased it for miles.

I never caught it but at least it gave me a good run for my money.
