The saddest story

Bill, Jim, and Scott are at a convention together and are sharing a large suite on the top of a 75-story skyscraper.

After a long day of meetings they are shocked to hear that the elevators in their hotel are broken. They will have to climb 75 flights of stairs to get to their room.

Bill says: “Let us break the monotony of this unpleasant task by concentrating on something interesting. I will tell jokes for 25 flights, Jim can sing songs for 25 flights, and Scott can tell sad stories the rest of the way.”

She continues by shouting: "You...

Your plane goes very fast

A travel agent in Washington, DC, tells about three of his experiences with politicians among his customers:

1. A US Senator asks a question about the documents he needs in order to fly to China. After a lengthy discussion about passports, the agent reminds him that he needs a visa. "I have been to China several times and I never had to have one of those," responded the Senator.

The agent double checks and tells him his stay requires a visa. The Senator replies: "Look, I have been to China four times and every time they have accepted my...

How draconic can security measures be?

The panic in the USA has given rise to erratic and in some respects draconic security measures. A funny Canadian video shows that even more draconic security measures could be possible. Presumably, panicking US officials may not be amused by the video. Hopefully, however, it will not inspire them to implement this kind of measures....
