The room was full of pregnant women and their partners. The Lamaze class was in full swing. The instructor was teaching the women how to breathe properly, and informing the men how to give the necessary assurances at this stage of the plan

"Ladies, exercise is good for you," announced the teacher. "Walking is especially beneficial. And, gentlemen, it wouldn't hurt you to take the time to go walking with your partner!"

The room was very quiet. Finally, Larry, a man in the middle of the group raised his hand.

"Yes?" asked the instructor.

"Is it all right if she carries a golf bag while we walk?"

************************************************** *********

Two men were adrift in a life boat following a dramatic escape from a burning freight vessel. While rummaging through the boat's provisions, one of the men stumbled across an old lamp. Secretly hoping that a genie would appear, he rubbed the lamp vigorously. To the amazement of the castaways, a genie came forth!


This particular genie, however, stated that she could only deliver one wish, not the standard three. Without giving much thought to the matter the man blurted out, "Make the entire ocean into beer!"

Immediately the genie clapped her hands with a deafening crash, and the entire sea turned into the finest brew ever sampled by mortals. Simultaneously, the genie vanished to her freedom. Only the gentle lapping of beer on the hull broke the stillness as the two men considered their circumstances. The other man looked disgustedly at the one whose wish had been granted.


After a long, tension-filled moment, he spoke:


"Nice going! Now we're going to have to pee in the boat."

'Zorabian Chicks' is a chicken farm owned by the Zorabians who have also produced a very lovely daughter & a restaurant called 'Gondola' at Pali Market in Bandra.

The name's ostensibly very tongue-in-cheek, considering the fact that the aforementioned lovely daughter is also their chief spokesperson...

Default Blow your own Gun...?

In a small town, a man just opened a small store selling trumpets and guns. One day his neighbor pays him a visit and says: "So how is your strange business going?"

"What do you mean strange?"

"Because you sell only trumpets and guns!"

"So!"

"Well, let me put it this way, what do you sell the most, trumpets or guns?"

"It evens itself out, each time a customer buys a trumpet, one of his neighbors buys a gun."

I'd like to add that I think the name existed before she did. God bless her but It's just that all these chicken pieces keep coming to mind and it's WRONG to think like that.

Perizaad is really lovely .

Anyways, here's another newpaper clip:

Nice one! Reminds me of this:

Three friends - a Brunette, a Redhead and a Blonde were stranded on a desert island after their speedboat overturned.

After months together, the sea washes up a lamp and the girls try the 'rub the lamp trick' and the Genie appears.

3 wishes are granted and as usual the two others are faster on the uptake and quickly wish themselves back home in civilization. The wishes are promptly granted and the girls are back with their families.

So the Genie taps his feet and asks the Blonde "Well ? You gotta finish before I can become free, y'know?"

And the Blonde opens her mouth for the first time "Gee I feel kinda lonely. I wish my friends were with me......"
