That's cool Bondo, laughing is good for your health. And if it's good for your health you live longer...:D

How about this one Mind your Language

:D

Is there anybody in there? Or is he looking for his wrist watch?

No Wim they are not looking for a wrist watch on the above picture but for an honest man as Diogenes once said.!!!

But here is another one joke to make your day:

Plane crashes on a desert island. 15 survivors. 3 Italians, two men and
a woman, 3 French people, 2 men and a woman, 3 Germans (you get the
picture), 3 Greeks and 3 Brits.
Six months later....
One Italian man had killed the other and was living with
the woman.
The French had a delightful menage a trois.
The Germans had a strict rotation. Hans on odd days,
Franz on even. The Greek men were living together and had the woman
doing the housework.
And the Brits....were waiting to be introduced to each other.

Chili-Cook Off's

if you can read this whole story without laughing, then there's no hope for you. I was crying by the end. This is an actual account as relayed to paramedics at a chili cook-off in Texas.

Note: Please take time to read this slowly. If you pay attention to the first two judges, the reaction of the third is even better.

For those of you who have lived in Texas, you know how true this is. They actually have a Chili Cook-Off about the time Halloween comes around. It takes up a major portion of a parking lot at the San Antonio City Park.

Judge #3 was an inexperienced Chili Taster named Frank, who was visiting from Springfield, Illinois. Frank: 'Recently, I was honoured to be selected as a judge at a chili cook-off. The original person called in sick at the last moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table, asking for directions to the Coors Light Truck, when the call came in. I was assured by the other two judges (Native Texans) that the chili wouldn't be all that spicy; and, besides, they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted and became Judge #3.'

Here are the scorecard notes from the event:

Chili #1 MIKE'S MANIAC MONSTER CHILI.....
Judge #1 A little to heavy on the tomato. Amusing kick.
Judge #2 Nice, smooth tomato flavour. Very Mild
Judge #3 (Frank)-Holy crap, what the hell is this stuff? You could remove dried paint from your
driveway. Took me two beers to put the flames out. I hope that's the worst one. These Texans are crazy.

Chili #2 AUSTIN'S AFTERBURNER CHILI.....
Judge #1 Smoky, with a hint of pork. Slight jalapeno tang.
Judge #2 Exciting BBQ flavor, needs more peppers to be taken seriously.
Judge #3 Keep this out of the reach of children. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to taste besides pain. I had to wave off two people that wanted to give me the Heimlich maneuver. They had to rush in more beer when they saw the look on my face.

Chili #3 FRED'S FAMOUS BURN DOWN THE BARN CHILI.....
Judge #1 Excellent Firehouse chili. Great kick.
Judge #2 A bit salty, good use of peppers.
Judge #3 Call the EPA, I've located a uranium spill. My nose feels like I have been snorting Drano. Everyone knows the routine by now. Get me more beer before I ignite. Barmaid pounded me on the back, now my backbone is in the front part of my chest. I'm getting shit-faced from all the beer.

Chili #4 BUBBA'S BLACK MAGIC.....
Judge #1 Black Bean chili with almost no spice. Disappointing
Judge #2 Hint of lime in the black beans. Good side dish for fish or other mild foods, not much of a chili.
Judge #3 I felt something scraping across my tongue, but was unable to taste it. Is it possible to burn out taste buds? Sally, the beer maid, was standing behind me with fresh refills. This 300 lb. woman is starting to look HOT...just like this nuclear waste I'm eating! Is chili an aphrodisiac????

Chili #5 LISA'S LEGAL LIP REMOVER.....
Judge #1 Meaty, strong chili. Cayenne peppers freshly ground, adding considerable kick. Very impressive.
Judge #2 Chili using shredded beef, could use more tomato. Must admit the cayenne peppers make a strong statement.
Judge #3 My ears are ringing, sweat is pouring off my forehead and I can no longer focus my eyes. I farted, and four people behind me needed paramedics. The contestant seemed offended when I told her that her chili had given me brain damage. Sally saved my tongue from bleeding by pouring beer directly on it from the pitcher. I wonder if I'm burning my lips off. It really ticks me off that the other judges asked me to stop screaming. Screw them.

Chili #6 VERA'S VERY VEGETARIAN VARIETY.....
Judge #1 Thin yet bold vegetarian variety chili. Good balance of spices and peppers.
Judge #2 The best yet. Aggressive use of peppers, onions and garlic! Superb
Judge #3 My intestines are now a straight pipe filed with gaseous, sulfuric flames. I crapped myself when I farted, and I'm worried it will eat through my chair. No one seems inclined to stand behind me except that Sally. Can't feel my lips anymore. I need to wipe my butt with a snow cone.

Chili #7 SUSAN'S SCREAMING SENSATION CHILI.....
Judge #1 A mediocre chili with too much reliance on canned peppers.
Judge #2 Ho Hum, tastes as if the chef literally threw in a can of chili peppers at the last moment. **I should take note that I am worried about Judge #3. He appears to be in a bit of distress as he is cursing uncontrollably.
Judge #3 You could put a grenade in my mouth, pull the pin, and I wouldn't feel a thing. I've lost sight in one eye, and the world sounds like it is made of rushing water. My shirt is covered with chili, which slid unnoticed out of my mouth.. My pants are full of lava to match my shirt. At least during the autopsy, they'll know what killed me. I've decided to stop breathing it's to painful. Screw it; I'm not getting any oxygen anyway. If I need air, I'll just suck it through the 4-inch hole in my stomach.

Chili #8 BIG TOM'S TOENAIL CURLING CHILI.....
Judge #1 The perfect ending, this is a nice blend chili. Not to bold but spicy enough to declare it's existence.
Judge #2 This final entry is a good, balanced chili. Neither mild nor hot. Sorry to see that most of it was lost when Judge #3 farted, passed out, fell over and pulled the chili pot down on top of himself. Not sure if he's going to make it. Poor feller, wonder how he'd have reacted to really hot chili????/
Judge #3 NO REPORT!!!!!

My wife sat down on the couch next to me as I was flipping channels. She asked, 'What's on TV?'
I said, 'Dust.' ;)

Hi Yannis.

Glad to see you were watching Britain's Got Talent. Stavros Flattley were very funny doing their Greek/Irish dancing. I am sure they will have a lot of bookings. Lots of fun.
