Click for the 'PermaThread™: List of all joke threads'


Hi guys,

Here I am, Ms Wet Blanket of 1999-2000. I haven't been joining in much over the last few months with the Mudcat community happenings and it is all because I ...want to kill my boss!! The sneaky, back stabbing, gutless #%$#@%+##@!

I'm not going to go into the long, sordid story here, but I've been under a huge amount of stress over the last 10 months because of him and another (female) manager and I am just in the process now of getting my own back .... [wicked, gleeful giggling] ... in the most professional way, of course (tee hee!) Thank god(s) for Unions and clever Union Organisers (Hi Big Mick!, for other managers with ethics, for professional mediators, and for organisational counsellors.

Well, I was reading the Mudcat thread titles the other day, looking at the BS threads and I realised that I had no interest in opening any of them - and then it came to me in a blinding revelatory flash, that I have *lost my sense of humour* (sob, sigh, moan)

So, I need you all to help me find it. Jokes, funny stories, songs, you name it, all welcome.

Especially songs about the meek inheriting the earth, or of the ilk of The Philadelphia Lawyer (in the database)

(Now way back in old Pennsylvania,

The lights are still shining as bright,

But there's one less Philadelphia lawyer

In old Philadelphia tonight.)

or about the downtrodden fighting back. Think of the scene in the Crocodile Dundee movie where the kangaroo starts "shooting" back - I laughed till I cried when I first saw that scene. I thought the blow fly reference, and the subway scene were a scream too, but I think you have to be from Oz to get those two jokes.

So, to start the ball rolling, the most appropriate song which springs to my mind is The Union Maid (it's in the database)

UNION MAID (Woody Guthrie)

There once was a union maid

Who never was afraid

Of goons and ginks and company finks

And deputy sheriffs who made the raids

She went to the union hall

When a meeting it was called,

And when the Legion boys came 'round

She always stood her ground.

cho: Oh, you can't scare me, I'm sticking to the union,

I'm sticking to the union,I'm sticking to the union

Oh, you can't scare me, I'm sticking to the union,

I'm sticking to the union till the day I die.

Helen - hanging out the wet blanket to dry - at last

Helen, Hi! Nice to meetcha, I'm a *newbie* (groan). I will send some things your way... in the meantime there are some really nasty Psalms I would encourage you to review-- open the book anywhere and chances are it will be.. memorable.

A line I like from the Bible is, "Wise as the serpent, gentle as the dove." It's knowing which calls for which.

I also HIGHLY recommend the movie Falling Down for quick release. But skip the end.

Hang in there!!!

BTW, if your sense of humor really is lost, I am sure you will find it skulking under a table at the Mudcat Cafe.

A man was hauled into court for violating the Endangered Species act. He had shot a California Condor, and the judge socked him with a thousand dollar fine. The he asked him why he did it, and the man said "I wanted to see what it tasted like." The judge said, "Well, I could throw you in jail for 5 years, but, I'm not going to because you killed it to eat. But tell me, what did it taste like? The man replied, "A lot like Bald Eagle."

ALBERT AND THE LION There's a famous seaside place called Blackpool That's noted for fresh air and fun And Mr. and Mrs. Ramsbottom Went there with young Albert, their son. A fine little lad were young Albert, All dressed in his best, quite a swell. He'd a stick with an 'orse's 'ead 'andle; The finest that Woolworth's could sell. They didn't think much to the ocean, The waves they were piddlin' and small. There were no wrecks and nobody drownded, 'Fact, nothin' to laugh at at all! So, seeking for further amusement, They paid, and went into the zoo, Where they'd lions and tigers and camels And cold ale and sandwiches, too. There were one great big lion called Wallace Whose nose was all covered with scars; He lay in a som-no-lent posture With the side of 'is face on the bars. Now Albert 'ad 'eard about lions- 'Ow they was ferocious and wild; To see lion lyin' so peaceful Just didn't seem right to the child. So straightway the brave little feller, Not showin' a morsel of fear, Took 'is stick with the 'orse's 'ead 'andle And stuck it in Wallace's ear. You could see that the lion din't like it, For givin' a kind of a roll, 'E pulled Albert inside the cage with 'im And swallered the little lad - 'ole! Now Mother 'ad seen this occurrence, And not knowin' what to do next, She 'ollered "Yon lion's et Albert!" An' Father said "Ee, I am vexed." They complained to an animal keeper Who said "My, wot a nasty mis'ap; Are you sure it's your boy 'e's eaten?" Pa said, "Am I sure? There's 'is cap!" The manager 'ad to be sent for; 'E came and 'e said "Wot's to-do?" Ma said "Yon lion's et Albert, And 'im in 'is Sunday clothes, too!" Father said "Right's right, young feller- I think it's a shame and a sin To 'ave our son et by a lion And after we paid to come in." The manager wanted no trouble; He took out his purse right away, Sayin' "'Ow much to settle the matter?" Pa said "Wot do you usually pay?" But Mother 'ad turned a bit awkward When she saw where 'er Albert 'ad gone. She said "No, someone's got to be summonsed!" So that was decided upon. And off they all went to p'lice station In front of a Magistrate chap; They told what 'ad 'appened to Albert And proved it by showing 'is cap. The Magistrate gave 'is opinion That no one was really to blame, And 'e said that 'e 'oped the Ramsbottoms Would 'ave further sons to their name. At that Mother got proper blazin': "And thank you, sir, kindly," said she- "Wot, spend all our lives raisin' children To feed ruddy lions? Not me!" Recorded by Stanley Halloway

Lots of boss-related humor at The Dilbert Zone

Can't think of any anti-boss or anti-general authority jokes presently. I had one boss-from-hell. He once told me I would inevitably run into someone I liked worse than him. I never have and doubt I will. (There was a song I posted that only one Mudcatter seemed to notice which was based largely on my perception of his personality. I guess the experience was good for something.) I kept a copy of a book titled "How to Deal With Difficult People" in an obvious place on my desk.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! - loved the joke from Kendall - hope the sense of humour is getting better.

I found my feelings towards a former boss were helped a great deal by suggesting to my therapist that I rip her head off and spit down her neck (my boss, not the therapist).

The best one though was this.

Get the pattern for a rag doll with seperate limbs - not an all in one jobby. Cut out the pieces and sew them up but instead of sewing the head and limbs on, leave them unattached and sew them up. Sew fasteners like poppers, press studs or velcro (hook tape) where they would join, and then you can have fun ripping the limbs off and chucking them across the office. Great for stress relief and keeping the toddler amused!

Oh, and Jeeri & Jon,

I bought two Dilbert books in the middle of last year but it was just too close to the reality - more autobiographical than funny, because I have been living in Dilbertland with a boss just like that. It made me want to cry not laugh.

I'm probably ready to read it now, though.

Have you seen the User Friendly comic strips - about an Internet Service Provider and it's customer support staff - very Dilbertesque.

Three pints o Guinness

Irish fella walks into a pub in Toronto and orders three pints of Guinness. The bartender pours them, and the fella lines them up in a row, takes a sip from the first one, than a sip from the second one, then a sip from the third. He continues this until they're all empty, then orders three more. The bartender says, "Sir, I don't mean to be telling you your business and I'm sure you can hold your liquor, but do ye not know they'd stay fresh longer if you just drank one at a time--they're goin flat when you're halfway through."

The customer explains, "Sure I know that, but I'll tell ye the way of it. I have two brothers I grew up with in County Kerry, one is in California now, the other's in Australia, and I'm here in Canada. But the night before we all left Ireland--we'd had a few already, mind ye--we made a promise that we'd each drink this way, to remember the good days when we all drank together, and why not? So it's as if I'm still drinkin with me brothers."

The fellow became a regular at the pub, always drinking three stouts at once, and came in several times a week for about six months. Then one day he came in and as the bartender started to pull his three beers, the man raised a hand and said, "Just two tonight, Jimmy."

The bartender stared for a second. The room went dead silent. Then the bartender said, "Sure, and these are on the house for I'm sorry for yer troubles. Which of your brothers has passed away?"

The Kerryman then stared back for a second, and burst out laughing. "No, that's not it at all. My brothers are both fine, ye see, but I've had to give up the drinking!"

Sorry.]

Willie-O

Jeri,

(Sorry for the typo on your name before - I didn't mean to call you Jeeri - the vowels seem to repeat on any keyboard I type on)

I love the song. I didn't see it before, mainly because of my lethargic checking out of thread titles over the last few months - I just couldn't get the energy up to check out all the threads with interesting titles.

I'm trying to decide whether to inflict some of my other jokes on you guys. I'll spare you the pain, just for the present, but I'll be back.

Helen

Spare us the pain"? Oh for crying out loud, Helen. Anyone can see from the previous posts we must all be somewhat masochistic, so please bring on your best (or worst) whichever you consider it. Just to prove how masochictic some are, I submit the following:

During the reign of Alexander the Great there where many folks with powers long forgotten. One was Alexander's personal alchemist. He designed for Alexander a piece of cloth which was soaked in certain chemicals. These chemicals would change color with the passing of time. He advised his master that if he would wear this piece of cloth on his person that he would instantly know what time of day it was by the color of it! Alexander took the rag and wrapped it around his wrist, much like a modern day watch. This new invention soon became known through out the land as.......Alexander's Rag Time Band.

Helen, I hope all this is helping. Be advised the next step in your recovery is the actual telling of jokes. Additionally, at some point, you're going to simply want revenge. I'm going to trace this thread - it's got jokes in it that even Kendall hasn't heard!

A duck waddles into a bar, hops up onto the stool and asks, "Got any grapes?"

The bartender glares at him. "Does this look like a grocery store? No grapes here."

"Okay," says the duck. He hops off the stool and waddles out.

Three days in a row, the duck comes into the bar and asks for grapes. Finally, the bartender is at the end of his patience, and explodes, "For the last time, this is a bar! We do not have grapes! The next time you ask for grapes, I'm going to nail your bill to the bar!"

The duck says, "Okay," and waddles out of the bar.

The next day, in comes the duck. As he hops up onto the stool, the bartender glares suspiciously. The duck asks, "Got any nails?"

The bartender is fed up. "This is not a hardware store, either! We have no nails!"

The duck looks him in the eye and says, "Okay...Got any grapes?"

Another "hard of hearing" story:

A older couple from Vermont were driving south and stopped at a service station in a small town in Tennessee. The old gentleman got out to fill up his car and the service attendant came out to check his oil. The attendant asks, "where ya from?" The old man says, "we're from Vermont." At that, his wife asks, "what did he say?" The old man says, "he asked where we're from and I told him Vermont."

The attendant then says, "hey, I used to live in Vermont." Before the old man could ask him where, his wife said, "what did he say?" The old man says, "he said he used to live in Vermont."

The old man asks the attendant where he lived in Vermont and he responded, "on a farm in mid-state Vermont." The old man says, "hey, we live in mid-state Vermont." At that the wife again asks, "what did he say?" The old man says, "he said he used to live on a farm in mid-state Vermont."

The attendant then says, "yeah, I lived there with a nice lady. She sure could cook and man did she keep a good house. But brother, was she ever lousy in bed." And the old woman again says, "what did he say?" The old man says, "he says he thinks he knows you."

A fellow mentions in conversation that he has eleven children. His friend says "Eleven kids! Why so many?"

"It's because my wife is hard of hearing."

"Hard of hearing? What's that got to do with it?"

"Well, every night when we get into bed, I say 'Honey, do you want to go to sleep, or what?' Then she says 'What?'"
