A frog goes into a bank

A frog goes into a bank, and asks to take out a loan.   The cashier, who has the unfortunate name of Miss Patricia Whack, starts to take him through the application form.   Everything is fine until she discovers he has nothing to offer as security.

"Don't worry," he tells her, "My father is Mick Jagger - he will see to it you get paid back."

"I'm sorry," she replies, "but I can't accept that.   Don't you have anything you can offer as security?"

"Well, I do have this."   The frog takes out of his packet a small, cheap, china cat.   Patricia takes it to her supervisor and explains the situation.

"So," she concludes, holding out the china cat, "I don't know what this is, or what to tell this customer."

"Isn't it obvious?" the supervisor asks, "It's a nick-nack, Patty Whack: give the frog a loan - his old man's a Rolling Stone."

(Told by Peter Crook, on the EE course, February 2000.)

A missionary comes home

A missionary comes home for a break, and decides to make some money decorating houses.   He buys some good paint, but to make it go further and increase his profit, he waters it down.

He has just finished painting the first house, standing back and admiring his handiwork when he hears a Voice speak to him from Heaven:

"Re-paint, and thin no more!"

A New Element

A new element, the heaviest known to science, was recently discovered.

The element, tentatively named Administratium, has no protons or electrons and thus an atomic number of 0. However, it does have 1 neutron, 75 executive vice neutrons, 125 vice neutrons, and 111 assistant vice neutrons. This gives it an atomic mass of 312. The 312 particles are held together by a force that involves the continuous exchange of meson-like particles called morons.

Since it has no electrons, Administratium is inert. However, it can be detected chemically since it impedes every process with which it has contact. According to the discoverers, a minute amount of Administratium caused one process to take four days to complete when it would have normally occurred in less than one second.

Administratium has a normal half-life of approximately three years, during which time it does not actually decay but, instead, undergoes a reorganization in which executive vice neutrons, vice neutrons, and assistant vice neutrons randomly change position. Some studies have suggested that atomic mass actually increases after each reorganization.

Research indicates that Administratium occurs naturally in the atmosphere, it tends to concentrate at certain points such as government agencies, large corporations, and universities, and can usually be found in the newest, best appointed and best maintained buildings.

Scientists point out that Administratium is known to be toxic at any level and can easily destroy any productive reaction where it is allowed to accumulate. Attempts are being made to determine how Administratium can be isolated or controlled to prevent irreversible damage, but results are not promising.

What Was Jesus?

Rumor has it that JESUS WAS JEWISH...

But then again, just maybe JESUS WAS IRISH...


Then again it is possible that JESUS WAS ITALIAN...

There are those who believe JESUS WAS BLACK...

Some of us suspect that JESUS WAS CALIFORNIAN...

However, there is one other possibility - MAYBE JESUS WAS A WOMAN...

A Pome About A Spell Checker

Eye have a spell chequer
It came with my pea sea
It plainly marks four my revue
Miss steaks eye kin not sea

Eye strike a quay and type a word
And weight for it too say
Weather eye am wrong or write
It shows me strait a weigh

As soon as a mist ache is maid
It shoes before two long
And eye can put the error write
It's rare lea ever wrong

Eye have run this poem threw it
I'm shore your please to no
It's letter perfect all the weigh
My chequer towed me sew
