Talking Re: Emails that keep you sane

I guess it must be my age.

I have in recent years taken more interest in the 'hatch, match & despatch' section in the local paper & only then do I read the news.

The lonely hearts column also holds my interest (not for myself you understand). I am blissfully happy A little like taking an interest in meat recipes although I am a vegetarian.

The following was forwarded to me & I thought I would share. I particularly enjoyed the accountants ad.

Quote:
Who said Scots Romance is dead! These are REAL ADS from the
lonely-hearts column.


Grossly overweight Buckie turf-cutter, 42 years old and 23 stone,
Gemini, seeks nimble sexpot, preferably South American, for tango
sessions, candlelit dinners and humid nights of screaming passion.
Must have own car and be willing to travel. Box 09/08



Aberdeen man, 50, in desperate need of a ride. Anything considered. Box06/03



Heavy drinker, 35, Glasgow area, seeks gorgeous sex addict interested
in pints, fags, Celtic football club and starting scraps on
Sauchiehall Street at three in the morning. Box 73/82 .



Bitter, disillusioned Dundonian lately rejected by longtime fiancée
seeks decent, honest, reliable woman, if such a thing still exists in
this cruel world of hatchet-faced bitches. Box /41



Ginger-haired Paisley troublemaker, gets slit-eyed and shirty after a
few scoops, seeks attractive, wealthy lady for bail purposes, maybe
more Box 84/87



Artistic Edinburgh woman, 53, petite, loves rainy walks on the beach,
writing poetry, unusual sea-shells and interesting brown rice dishes,
seeks mystic dreamer for companionship, back rubs and more as we
bounce along like little tumbling clouds on life's beautiful crazy
journey. Strong stomach essential Box 12/32



Chartered accountant, 42, seeks female for marriage. Duties will
include cooking, light cleaning and accompanying me to office social
functions. References required. No timewasters. Box 3/45



Bad-tempered, foul-mouthed old bastard living in a damp cottage in the
arse end of Orkney seeks attractive 21-year old blonde lady with big
chest. Box 40/27



Devil-worshiper, Stirling area, seeks like-minded lady for wining and
dining, good conversation, dancing, romantic walks and slaughtering
dogs in cemeteries at midnight under the flinty light of a pale moon.
Box 52/07



Attractive brunette, Maryhill area, winner of Miss Wrangler
competition at Frampton's Nightclub, Maryhill, in September 1978,
seeks nostalgic man who's not afraid to cry, for long nights spent
comfort-drinking and listening to old Abba records. Please, Please!
Box 30/41



Govan man, 27, medium build, brown hair, blue eyes, seeks alibi for
the night of February 27 between 8pm and 11.30pm

The Summary of Life




GREAT TRUTHS THAT LITTLE CHILDREN HAVE LEARNED:
1) No matter how hard you try, you can't baptize cats.
2) When your Mum is mad at your Dad, don't let her brush your hair.
3) If your sister hits you, don't hit her back. They always catch the second person.
4) Never ask your 3-year old brother to hold a tomato.
5) You can't trust dogs to watch your food.
6) Don't sneeze when someone is cutting your hair.
7) Never hold a Dust-Buster and a cat at the same time.
8) You can't hide a piece of broccoli in a glass of milk.
9) Don't wear polka-dot underwear under white shorts.
10) The best place to be when you're sad is Grandpa's lap.


GREAT TRUTHS THAT ADULTS HAVE LEARNED:

1) Raising teenagers is like nailing jelly to a tree.
2) Wrinkles don't hurt.
3) Families are like fudge..mostly sweet, with a few nuts.
4) Today's mighty oak is just yesterday's nut that held its ground.
5) Laughing is good exercise. It's like jogging on the inside.
6) Middle age is when you choose your cereal for the fiber, not the toy.




GREAT TRUTHS ABOUT GROWING OLD

1) Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional.
2) Forget the health food, I need all the preservatives I can get.
3) When you fall down, you wonder what else you can do while you're down there.
4) You're getting old when you get the same sensation from a rocking chair that you
Once got from a roller coaster.
5) It's frustrating when you know all the answers but nobody bothers to ask you the questions.
6) Time may be a great healer, but it's a lousy beautician.
7) Wisdom comes with age, but sometimes age comes alone.



THE FOUR STAGES OF LIFE:

1) You believe in Santa Claus.
2) You don't believe in Santa Claus.
3) You are Santa Claus.
4) You look like Santa Claus.



SUCCESS:

At age 4 success is . . . Not piddling in your pants.
At age 12 success is . . . Having friends.
At age 17 success is . . Having a drivers license.
At age 35 success is . . Having money.
At age 50 success is . . . Having money.
At age 70 success is . .. . Having a drivers license.
At age 75 success is . . . Having friends.
At age 80 success is . . . Not piddling in your pants.

Pack of Dogs Attacking a Crocodile in the Kruger Park

At times nature can be cruel, but there is also a raw beauty, and even a certain justice manifested within that cruelty.

The crocodile, one of the oldest and ultimate predators, normally considered the "apex predator," can still fall victim to implemented "team work" strategy, made possible due to the tight knit social structure and "survival-of-the-pack mentality" bred into the canines.

See the remarkable photograph below, courtesy of Nature Magazine. Note that the Alpha dog has a muzzle hold on the croc preventing it from breathing, while another dog has a hold on the tail to keep it from thrashing. The third dog attacks the soft underbelly of the croc.

I have put the picture as a link rather than embedded it as its not for the faint of heart...

1. Man-Flu is more painful than childbirth. This is an irrefutable scientific fact*.
*(Based on a survey of over 100,000 men.)

2. Man-Flu is not 'just a cold'. It is a condition so severe that the germs from a single Man-Flu sneeze could wipe out entire tribes of people living in the rainforest. And probably loads of monkeys too.

3. Women do not contract Man-Flu. At worst they suffer from what is medically recognised as a 'Mild Girly Sniffle', which, if a man caught, he would still be able to run, throw a ball, tear the phone book in half and compete in all other kinds of manly activities.

4. Men do not 'moan' when they have Man-Flu. They emit involuntary groans of agony that are entirely in proportion to the unbearable pain they are in.

5. Full recovery from Man-Flu will take place much quicker if their simple requests for care, sympathy and regular cups of tea are met. Is that really so much to ask? Florence Nightingale would have done it

6. More men die each year from MFN (Man-Flu Neglect) than lots and lots of other things. (Like rabbit attacks or choking on toast).

7. Men suffering from Man-Flu want nothing more than to get out of bed and come to work, but they are too selfless to risk spreading this awful condition amongst their friends and colleagues. In this sense, they are the greatest heroes this country has ever known.

8. In 1982 scientists managed to simulate the agonising symptoms of full blown Man-Flu in a female chimp. She became so ill that her head literally fell off.

9. Man-Flu germs are more powerful than He-Man, The Thundercats and The A-Team combined. They are too strong for weak, nasty tasting 'lady medicines' like Lemsip, so don't bother trying to force them on a victim of Man-Flu.

10. While it may seem like a Man-Flu sufferer is just lying around enjoying 'Diagnosis Murder' it is a commonly recognised medical fact that the exact pitch and frequency of Dick Van Dyke's voice has remarkable soothing powers.

Every minute in this country one man is struck down by Man-Flu. Women, all we ask is that each of you offers them a cup of tea, some kind words and your undivided attention and care. Then maybe, just maybe, we'll beat this monstrous disease together.

For your male attention: All (yes I mean ALL) women have a ready supply of FLU strength remedies available for MAN FLU symptoms. Personally I advise to dose the patient (beloved) well with MAX strength & usher them to bed.

Men please note: To assist & aid in love & recovery.

Women please note: If the whining darlings are upstairs in bed you can't hear the groaning.

Girls, enjoy the peace & wish they could give birth.

MPs expenses!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/8039273.stm

Personally, I think those involved should answer criminal charges of theft/fraud.

When I worked for the National Health Service I submitted a travel/petrol claim each month. If the claim was found to be inaccurate I would have been subject to 1) disciplinary action by the Trust. 2) criminal prosecution on the Trusts behalf & 3) potentially I could have been struck off by the HPC for such activities.

In private practice if there is a discrepancy in my tax returns the weight of the tax investigation team would land firmly upon my shoulders & demand up to 7 years (I believe) accounts for scrutiny.

IMO (think you can tell I'm bloody angry) thieves don't always carry swag bags & wear a mask. Some wear Saville Row suits & are educated privately.


The hair cut

One day a florist goes to a barber for a haircut. After the cut he
asked about his bill and the barber replies, ' I cannot accept money
from you. I'm doing community service this week. ' The florist was
pleased and left the shop.

When the barber goes to open his shop the next morning there is a
' thank you ' card and a dozen roses waiting for him at his door..

Later, a policeman comes in for a haircut, and when he tries to pay his
bill, the barber again replies, ' I cannot accept money from you. I'm
doing community service this week. ' The policeman is happy and leaves the
shop.

The next morning when the barber goes to open up there is a ' thank
you ' card and a dozen donuts waiting for him at his door.

Later that day, a college professor comes in for a haircut, and when
he tries to pay his bill, the barber again replies, ' I cannot accept
money from you. I'm doing community service this week. ' The professor
is very happy and leaves the shop..

The next morning when the barber opens his shop, there is a ' thank
you ' card and a dozen different books, such as ' How to Improve
Your Business ' and ' Becoming More Successful. '

Then, a Member of Parliament comes in for a haircut , and when he goes
to pay his bill the barber again replies, ' I cannot accept money from
you. I'm doing community service this week. ' The Member of Parliament
is very happy and leaves the shop.

The next morning when the barber goes to open up, there are a dozen
Members of Parliament lined up waiting for a free haircut.

And that, my friends, illustrates the fundamental difference between
the citizens of our country and the Members of Parliament

Talking Re: Emails that keep you sane

Hi,
Read in The Mail yesterday about the Essex shopkeeper who put the following sign in his window

"ONLY 2 MP's ALLOWED IN AT A TIME"

Seems they are even giving schoolkids a good name!

Neil.

In the beginning God covered the earth with broccoli, cauliflower and spinach, with green, yellow and red vegetables of all kinds so Man and Woman would live long and healthy lives.

Then using God's bountiful gifts, Satan created Dairy Ice Cream and Magnums.

And Satan said "You want hot fudge with that? And Man said "Yes!"

And Woman said "I'll have one too with chocolate chips". And lo they gained 10 pounds.

And God created the healthy yoghurt that Woman might keep the figure that Man found so fair.

And Satan brought forth white flour from the wheat and sugar from the cane and combined them.

And Woman went from size 12 to size 14. So God said "Try my fresh green salad".

And Satan presented Blue Cheese dressing and garlic croutons on the side.

And Man and Woman unfastened their belts following the repast.

God then said "I have sent you healthy vegetables and olive oil in which to cook them".

And Satan brought forth deep fried coconut king prawns, butter-dipped lobster chunks and chicken fried steak, so big it needed its own platter.

And Man's cholesterol went through the roof.

Then God brought forth the potato, naturally low in fat and brimming with potassium and good nutrition.

Then Satan peeled off the healthy skin and sliced the starchy centre into chips and deep fried them in animal fats adding copious quantities of salt.

And Man put on more pounds.

God then brought forth running shoes so that his Children might lose those extra pounds.

And Satan came forth with a cable TV with remote control so Man would not have to toil changing the channels.

And Man and Woman laughed and cried before the flickering light and started wearing stretch jogging suits.

Then God gave lean beef so that Man might consume fewer calories and still satisfy his appetite.

And Satan created McDonalds and the 99p double cheeseburger. Then Satan said "You want fries with that?" and Man replied "Yes, And super size 'em".

And Satan said "It is good."

And Man and Woman went into cardiac arrest.

God sighed ......... and created quadruple by-pass surgery.

And then ............ Satan chuckled and created the National Health Service.


THE FINAL WORD ON NUTRITION
After an exhaustive review of the research literature, here's the final word on nutrition and health.:
1. Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

2. Mexicans eat a lot of fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

3. Chinese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

4. Italians drink excessive amounts of red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

5. Germans drink beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and suffer fewer heart attacks than us.

CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like. Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

5 spare minutes? Find out all about your birthday.

Click on 'Birthday Calculator.'
It tells you how many hours and
How many seconds you have been alive on this earth and when
You were probably conceived.
How cool is that?
After you've finished reading the info, click again,
And see what the moon looked like the night you
Were born. Who says our time clocks aren't ticking...
Enjoy.

Not wishing anyone to believe I agree with the following. Just sharing.

MEN ARE JUST HAPPIER PEOPLE



NICKNAMES



· If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah.



· If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Godzilla and Four-eyes.





EATING OUT



· When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in $20, even though it's only for $32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back.



· When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators.





MONEY



· A man will pay $2 for a $1 item he needs.



· A woman will pay $1 for a $2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale.





BATHROOMS



· A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel.



· The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items.





ARGUMENTS



· A woman has the last word in any argument.



· Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.





FUTURE



· A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband.



· A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife..





SUCCESS



· A successful man is one who makes more money than his wife can spend.



· A successful woman is one who can find such a man.





MARRIAGE



· A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.



· A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does.





DRESSING UP



· A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail.



· A man will dress up for weddings and funerals.





NATURAL



· Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed.



· Women somehow deteriorate during the night.





OFFSPRING



· Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favorite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams.



· A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house.





THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

A married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing!
