Default Arguing with your Boss ...

Arguing with your Boss is like wrestling with a pig in mud.
After a while you realize that while you are getting dirty, the pig is actually enjoying it.

So what if the father was poor? Not everyone is born with loads of cash in their pocket. Sorry, its a very poor joke, making fun of poor people. I wonder how you decided it as worth posting.

But she did not call him poor, instead she was calling him something else....

That is a pretty nice joke Mag.

@diabloo, read a little deeper into the joke. bblost is right, but to put it in a more forum appropriate lingo, his father was also a BACHELOR (get it now)

George W Bush and Collin Powell was sitting in a bar, drinking and deep in some discussion. A man enters the bar and is really surprised to see them there. He asks the bartender, "Ain't that Bush and Powell?" Bartender replies "Yes".
The man walks upto them, says Hi and asks; "What're you guys thinking so hard about?" "We're going for World War III and Collin is not convinced with my plans on how to make it happen" Bush replies. "Really? How do you plan to make it happen?" asks the man. "We'll search and kill all the Iraqis around the world and one very intelligent blonde" replies Bush. "Why a blonde?" asks the man very confusingly.
Bush punches Powell on his shoulder and shouts: "I told you, nobody will worry about the Iraqis!!"

This one from a mail forward.

It was professor smith's first day at St. Johns medical college as a faculty. Known for his teaching excellence, he made his entry into a classroom of 1st year medical students, where he received a warm welcome from the students, followed by their intro.

To start with, he planned to put forth a question to the class. He said, "Well students, before we start off with today's lecture, let me ask you a simple question on human anatomy".

He gazed across the classroom, spotted a female student Suzie, and said, "Tell me Suzie, which part of the human body grows 10 times its original size when excited?"



Hearing this question, Suzie's face grew pale in embarrassment, she replied:" you should be ashamed to ask such a question to a female. I am sorry, but I can't answer your, this question".

Thwarted by the girl's reply, professor smith rolled on his sight around the classroom afresh, to find out if there was anyone else who could satisfy his query.

This time he located a male student Henry, who had already raised his hand in affirmation to answer the question, and allowed the lad to go ahead.

Henry answered: "pupil of a human eye".

The professor applauded for the boy's accurate answer; then turned back to Suzie and said: "look, Suzie, I am sorry but, I must tell you a couple of things:
(1) You lack knowledge
(2) you have a dirty mind and
(3) Your Expectations are too high!!!!!!!(10 times..........huh......MY GOD!!)

Infractions: 0/1 (5)
Default Nonplus Bush

President George W Bush visited a school one day. Children were encouraged to question their Prez.

Bob stood and asked Bush 3 questions :

1.Why did you lie about the biological weapons in Iraq?

2. Why did you invade Iraq without the UN sanction?

3. Where is Osama Bin Laden?

There was a long silence. Then, to every ones relief, bell rang for a recess.

When the class met again after the recess, Bush asked whether any one ask him further questions. A boy rose and said he would ask questions no.4 & 5.

4. Why did the recess bell rang 20 minutes earlier than the usual time?

5. What happened to Bob who didnt come back into the class room?

Your boss shared this with you so that you never argue with him.

Default Cost of diesel gone up? Don't feel so bad!

Debatable analogy but funny . Source: Mail Frwd

Over the weekend, I filled up my car's fuel tank, and I thought diesel has become really expensive after the recent price hike.

But then I compared it with other common liquids and did some quick calculations, and I felt a little better.

To know why, see the results below you'll be surprised at how outrageous some other prices are !

Diesel (regular) in Mumbai : Rs.36.08 per litre

Petrol (regular unleaded) in Mumbai : Rs.50.51 per litre

Coca Cola 330 ml can : Rs.20 = Rs.61 per litre

Dettol antiseptic 100 ml Rs.20 = Rs.200 per litre

Radiator coolant 500 ml Rs.160 = Rs.320 per litre

Pantene conditioner 400 ml Rs.165 = Rs.413 per litre

Medicinal mouthwash like Listerine 100 ml Rs.45 = Rs. 450 per litre

Red Bull 150 ml can : Rs.75 = Rs.500 per litre

Corex cough syrup 100 ml Rs.57 = Rs. 570 per litre

Evian water 500 ml Rs. 330 = Rs. 660 per litre
Rs. 500 for a litre of WATER???!!! And the buyers don't even know the source (Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)

Kores whiteout 15 ml Rs. 15 = Rs. 1000 per litre

Cup of coffee at any decent business hotel 150 ml Rs. 175 = Rs. 1167 per litre

Old Spice after shave lotion 100 ml Rs. 175 = Rs. 1750 per litre

Pure almond oil 25 ml Rs. 68 = Rs. 2720 per litre

And this is the REAL KICKER...
HP deskjet colour ink cartridge 21 ml Rs.1900 = Rs. 90476 per litre!!!

Now you know why computer printers are so cheap ? So they have you hooked for the ink !

So, the next time you're at the pump, don't curse our honorable Petroleum minister just be glad your car doesn't run on cough syrup, after shave, coffee, or God forbid, printer ink !

A very famous, legendary ex-captain and all-rounder of the Indian cricket team who is also well known for his inability to speak proper English said something like this after a 2003 world cup match in the extra-innings studio:

"They should have bowled a couple of 2-3 overs."
