smile008A few tales of mistaken meanings from our friend Sten. (We hope the weather in Jersey is warm enough for you Sten)


A blonde lady motorist was about two hours from the Gold Coast when she was flagged down by a man whose truck had broken down.
The man walked up to the car and asked, 'Are you going to the Gold Coast?'
'Sure,' answered the blonde, 'do you need a lift?'
'Not for me. I'll be spending the next three hours fixing my truck. My problem is I've got two chimpanzees, in the back, which have to be taken to the Gold Coast Zoo. They're a bit stressed already so I don't want to keep them on the road all day. Could you possibly take them to the zoo for me? I'll give you $100 for your trouble.'
'I'd be happy to,' said the blonde.
So the two chimpanzees were ushered into the back seat of the blonde's car and carefully strapped into their seat belts. Off they went.
Five hours later, the truck driver was driving through the heart of the Gold Coast when suddenly he was horrified!!
There was the blonde walking down the street and holding hands with the two chimps, much to the amusement of a big crowd.
With a screech of brakes he pulled off the road and ran over to the blonde. 'What the heck are you doing here ?' he demanded, 'I gave you $100 to take these chimpanzees to the zoo.'
'Yes, I know you did,' said the blonde,' but we had money left over --- so now we're going to Sea World.


Two Maori's are riding along the highway on a motorbike and they break down so they start trying to hitch a lift.
A friendly trucker (Ian) stops to see if he can help and the 2 Maori's ask him for a lift..   He tells them he has no room in the wagon as he is carrying 20,000 bowling balls. The Maori's put it to Ian that if they can manage to fit in the back with their bike will he give them a lift and he agrees. They manage to squeeze themselves and their motorbike into the back of the  wagon so Ian the driver shuts the doors and gets off on his way.

By this time he is really late and so puts his foot down.  Sure enough the Highway Patrol pulls him over for speeding. The good officer asks Ian what he is carrying to which he replies jokingly-- 'Maori eggs' The Highway Patrol Officer obviously doesn't believe this so wants to take a look.
He opens the back door and quickly shuts it and locks it. He gets on his radio and calls for immediate backup from as many officers as possible. The dispatcher asks what emergency he has that requires so many officers.
''I've got a wagon pulled over here   with 20,000 Maori eggs in it---2 have hatched and the bastards have managed to steal a motor bike already.''


An elderly man in Louisiana had owned a large farm for several years. He had a large pond in the back. It was properly shaped for swimming, so he fixed it up nice with picnic tables, horseshoe courts, and some apple and peach trees. One evening the old farmer decided to go down to the pond, as he hadn't been there for a while, and look it over. He grabbed a five-gallon bucket to bring back some fruit. As he neared the pond, he heard voices shouting and laughing with glee. As he came closer, he saw it was a bunch of young women skinny-dipping in his pond. He made the women aware of his presence and they all went to the deep end. One of the women shouted to him, 'we're not coming out until you leave!' The old man frowned, 'I didn't come down here to watch you ladies swim naked or make you get out of the pond naked.' Holding the bucket up he said, 'I'm here to feed the alligator...'


The Israelis are developing an airport security device that eliminates the privacy concerns that come with full-body scanners. It's an armored booth you step into that will not X-ray you, but will detonate any explosive device you may have on your person....
Israel sees this as a win-win situation for everyone, with none of this crap about racial profiling....It will also eliminate the costs of long and expensive trials....

You're in the airport terminal and you hear a muffled explosion....Shortly thereafter, an announcement:"Attention to all standby passengers,
El Al is proud to announce a seat available on flight 670 to London.... Shalom!"

'Big Jimmy, an extraordinarily handsome man decided he had the responsibility to marry the perfect woman so they could produce beautiful children beyond compare.
With that as his mission he began searching for the perfect woman. Shortly there after he met a farmer who had three stunning, gorgeous daughters that positively took his breath away.
So he explained his mission to the farmer, asking for permission to marry one of them.
The farmer simply replied, 'They're lookin' to get married,so you came to the right place. Look 'em over and pick the one you want.'
Jimmy dated the first daughter. The next day the farmer asked for the man's opinion.
'Well,' said Jimmy, 'she's just a weeeeee bit, not that you can hardly notice...pigeon-toed.'
The farmer nodded and suggested Jimmy date one of the other girls; so Jimmy went out with the second daughter.
The next day, the farmer again asked how things went.
'Well,'Jimmy replied, 'she's just a weeeeee bit, not that you can hardly tell...cross-eyed.'
The farmer nodded and suggested he date the third girl to see if things might be better. So he did.
The next morning Jimmy rushed in exclaiming,'She's perfect, just perfect. She's the one I want to marry'
So they were wed right away. Months later the bairn wuz born.

When Jimmy visited the nursery he was horrified: the bairn was the ugliest, most pathetic human you can imagine. He rushed to his father-in-law asking how such a thing could happen considering the beauty of the parents.
'Well,' explained the farmer, 'She was just a weeeeee bit, not that you could hardly tell...Pregnant when you met her.'


A Chinese guy goes into a Jewish-owned  establishment to buy black bras, size 38. The Jewish store keeper,  known for his skills as a businessman, says that black bras are rare  and that he is finding it very difficult to buy them from his  suppliers. Therefore he has to charge $50.00 for them.
The  Chinese guy buys 25 bras. He returns a few days later and  this time orders fifty.
The Jewish owner tells him that they  have become even harder to get and charges him $60.00  each.
The Chinese guy returns a month later and buys the  store's remaining stock of 50, and this time for $75.00  each. The Jewish owner is  somewhat puzzled by the large demand for black size 38 bras and asks  the Chinese guy, "...please tell me - What do you do with all these  black bras?"
The Chinese guy answers:  "I  cut them in half and sell them as skull caps to Jewish men for  $200.00 each."

A middle-aged couple had finally learned how to send and receive texts on their cell phones.
The wife, being a romantic at heart, decided one day that she'd send her husband a text while she was out of the house having coffee with a friend.

She texted:

If you are sleeping, send me your dreams.
If you are laughing, send me your smile.
If you are eating, send me a bite.
If you are drinking, send me a sip.
If you are crying, send me your tears.
I love you.

The husband, being a no-nonsense sort of guy, texted back:

I'm on the toilet. Please advise.
