Crazy J sent in these jokes to lighten your Friday
Cuzzy Tania sent me these rather amusing newspaper clips:
Now, I don't know if it's the quality of the Metro reporters or poor Elizabeth's overheated brain to blame for filling up the newspaper with such quality information, but surely if a newspaper reporter came up to you and said "what have you got to say about the weather" I would hope that anyone reading this would reply with something along the lines of "Well, achieving room temperature fusion isn't a big deal right now".
Karin sent me a stuff news article about the Haka with handbags. Pretty amusing, a link to the video is on the page just after the article itself.
I know a bunch of people have gotten their knickers in a twist about the Australians making the video, but I reckon it's damn funny and fairly well done.
What's not so cool is Jerry Collins going for a leak on the field in front of 35,000 people!
Petra sent in this lovely story about her poetry class:
The Australian Poetry Competition had come
down to two finalists, a university graduate and an older aboriginal man.
They were given a word, then allowed two minutes to study the word and
come up with a poem that contained the given word.
The word given was TIMBUKTU.
First to recite his poem was the university graduate. He stepped to the microphone and said:
"Slowly across the desert sand,
Trekked a lonely caravan.
Men on camels two by two,
The crowd went crazy! Surely the Aboriginal gent could never top that.
Slowly he made his way to the microphone & recited:
"Me and Tim a huntin' we went,
Met three whores in a pop-up tent.
They was three and we was two,
So I bucked one and Timbuktu."
The Aboriginal man won.
