Better to make it 25 years. About 15-20 years back computer viruses were famous, every virus attack got front page coverage in newspaper. Now nobody gives a damn.

Default Harley Davidson..!!

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/shifti...html#post63075 (The Official Joke thread)

You have read the above already and what you have not read is below:

Continued...

The engineer continued… “ But, hold on, I am not finished yet…!”

"The (self) controls system seldom works properly. It goes berserk near jewelry shops and exquisite boutiques...”
"The exposed parts need expensive painting / coating…. almost Everyday….!! and the painting shops are charging heavens for such services..!”
After some use, the front bumpers need extra special hangers to keep them in place.”
"The engine design is so bad, even when not in use, it needs oil change every month. And it takes 4 to 5 days for each oil change, which by any standard is ridiculous.”
"Most of all there is very less re-sale value. Mostly after one owner, the value drops to les than 10% of its original market price. And that’s the main reason for more men riding your invention than ours.”

The engineer said, ‘Now, check your computer for how many of the men who are riding your invention are their owners and compare with our product.

God verified his computer and reply came that more men riding the H.D.s are owners than those riding God’s invention....!!!

Believe it or not, a 25-year-old man stole the Honda City car of his maternal uncle and sold it off to a second-hand car dealer for a mere Rs 7000. The incident happened in Model Town in north-west Delhi and, according to the police, the accused is now absconding.

Thank God for church ladies with typewriters. These sentences actually appeared in church bulletins or were announced in church services (Summer, 2006 Release).



The Fasting & Prayer Conference includes meals.



The sermon this morning: "Jesus Walks on the Water." The sermon tonight: "Searching for Jesus."



Our youth basketball team is back in action Wednesday at 8 PM in the recreation hall. Come out and watch us kill Christ the King.



Ladies, don't forget the rummage sale. It's a chance to get rid of those things not worth keeping around the house. Bring your husbands.



The peacemaking meeting scheduled for today has been canceled due to a conflict.



Remember in prayer the many who are sick of our community. Smile at someone who is hard to love. Say "Hell" to someone who doesn't care much about you.

Don't let worry kill you off - let the Church help.



Miss Charlene Mason sang "I will not pass this way again," giving obvious pleasure to the congregation.

For those of you who have children and don't know it, we have a nursery downstairs.

Next Thursday there will be tryouts for the choir. They need all the help they can get.

The Rector will preach his farewell message, after which the choir will sing: "Break Forth Into Joy."



Irving Benson and Jessie Carter were married on October 24 in the church. So ends a friendship that began in their school days.

At the evening service tonight, the sermon topic will be "What Is Hell?" Come early and listen to our choir practice.

Eight new choir robes are currently needed due to the addition of several new members and to the deterioration of some older ones.

Scouts are saving aluminum cans, bottles and other items to be recycled. Proceeds will be used to cripple children.

Please place your donation in the envelope along with the deceased person you want remembered.

The church will host an evening of fine dining, super entertainment and gracious hostility.



Potluck supper Sunday at 5:00 PM - prayer and medication to follow.



The ladies of the Church have cast off clothing of every kind. They may be seen in the basement on Friday afternoon.



This evening at 7 PM there will be a hymn singing in the park across from the Church. Bring a blanket and come prepared to sin.



Ladies Bible Study will be held Thursday morning at 10 AM. All ladies are invited to lunch in the Fellowship Hall after the B.S. is done.



The pastor would appreciate it if the ladies of the congregation would lend him their electric girdles for the pancake breakfast next Sunday.



Low Self Esteem Support Group will meet Thursday at 7 PM. Please use the back door.



The eighth-graders will be presenting Shakespeare's Hamlet in the Church basement Friday at 7 PM. The congregation is invited to attend this tragedy.



Weight Watchers will meet at 7 PM at the First Presbyterian Church. Please use the large double door at the side entrance.



The Associate Minister unveiled the church's new tithing campaign slogan last Sunday : "I Upped My Pledge - Up Yours
