The husband store

husbandsA store that sells new husbands has opened in NEWFOUNDLAND, where a woman may go to choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:

You may visit this store ONLY ONCE!

There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights. The shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but you cannot go back down except to exit the building!

So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:

Floor 1 – These men have jobs.

The prawns were constantly being harassed and threatened by sharks that inhabited the area. Finally one day Justin said to Christian, “I’m fed up with being a prawn; I wish I were a shark, and then I wouldn’t have any worries about being eaten.”…

Marathon HIGNFY

Don’t know about you but I particularly dislike Paul Merton, Hislop is a twerp but apart from that, this had to be one of the most, if not the most, entertaining episode.  Not having a tele, it’s the first time I’ve seen this one which took 80 minutes odd to deliver by Boris.

Plus she’s easy on the eyes.  The weight of those things!

Still miss Angus Deayton. Just grab a coffee or something harder – we’ll wait for you with Part 2.…

The oldies are the goodies


A young New York woman was so depressed she decided to end her life by throwing herself into the ocean. Just before she could throw herself from the docks, a handsome young man stopped her. “You have so much to live for,” he said. “I’m a sailor and we are off to Italy tomorrow. I can stow you away on my ship. I’ll take care of you, bring you food every day, and keep you happy. When we get to Italy you will be SO GLAD you’re alive” …

Strike a canary

#  To cheer you up on Monday morning:

Construction workers were remodeling a science laboratory on the sixth floor of Marble Hill’s John F. Kennedy High School at about 8 p.m. when a powerful explosion destroyed parts of the fourth, fifth and sixth floors of the building, sending three workers to the hospital, one in serious condition.

Sources say the workers were supposed to shut off the gas to the lab at a source and then pump another less volatile but noxious fuel into the line, pushing the dangerous and odorless gas out the other end.

When the line is completely free of the odorless fuel, workers would normally smell the secondary fuel, which signals that the line is safe to work around.

But sources say a worker allegedly decided to test the line by striking a match near its tip — and it exploded with such force that a wall facing Terrace View Ave.
