A man left for work one Friday afternoon. But, since it was payday, instead of going home, he stayed out the entire weekend partying with the boys and spending his entire paycheck.

When he finally appeared at home Sunday night, he was confronted by a very angry wife and was barraged for nearly two hours with a tirade befitting his actions.

Finally his wife stopped the nagging and simply said to him. “How would you like it if you didn’t see me for two or three days?”

To which he replied. “That would be fine with me.”

Monday went by and he didn’t see his wife. Tuesday and Wednesday came and went with the same results. Come Thursday, the swelling went down just enough where he could see her a little out of the corner of his left eye.

Got this as a forward

[3rd day of the Trent Bridge Test between India and England during the Tea Break. The Indians are taking their ‘tea’ (to be precise, masala chai and samosas ferried in from a Malayalee Tea stall near the stadium) in their dressing room after the controversial dismissal of Ian Bell. Dhoni is seated in the center with Raina, Ishant to his right and Rahul Dravid, Duncan Fletcher to his left. The Little Master is looking out of the window forlornly. Harbhajjan Singh is heard muttering to himself in a corner of the dressing room]

Raina (animatedly): Bell ki Ghanti baja di. Bahut runs le raha tha. Acha kiya usko out kar diya
Dravid: Well, well, all’s well, and that ends Bell
(All laugh uproariously. The reverie is interrupted by the entry of Andrew Strauss and Andy Flower into the dressing room)
Ishant (sweetly): Hello Strauss and Flower Uncle, want some cutting chai?
Strauss (looking distraught): No thanks. Just had my Tea. Donhee, you have got to take back your appeal and call back Bell. This is just not on.
Dhoni (mischievously): Ghanta!!!
(The Indians laugh again)
Strauss (puzzled): Eh? What did that mean?
Fletcher: I think he meant Bell’s time is up. (Some more guffaws)
Strauss (exasperatedly): Look Guys, I have no idea what you are saying. But poor Bell is in tears, this is complete bollocks.
Dhoni (leaning over to Dravid and whispering): Dravid bhai, yeh ‘bollocks’ kya hota hai?
Dravid: I am well versed with Victorian era literature but not contemporary English slang. I think its something to do with balls or may be bellbottoms or may be bells and balls…er..lemme check on the net.
Dhoni (in a firm tone): Look Strauss, what we did was within the laws of the game. Sorry, Bell is out.
Strauss: But Donhee, this is not in the spirit of the game.
(Suddenly Bhajji intervenes after hearing the word ‘spirit’)
Bhajji (in a theatrical fashion): Guys, have I made it large?
Dhoni: Abe, tu phir se shuru ho gaya?
Bhajji (now almost close to tears): Sorry, Dhoni. The word spirit reminded me of the Royal Stag liquor ad and those memorable lines. I am confronted with that question again after my pathetic bowling in this Test. (Bhajji goes back to the corner weeping)
Dhoni (muttering under his breath): Looks like he has completely lost it. Isko drop karna padega.
Dravid: Look guys, we did everything within the laws of the game. What case do you have?
Andy Flower (in a pleading tone): But Donhee, the law is an ***.
Dravid: Andy is right, Dhoni. He’s quoting from Charles Dickens ‘Oliver Twist’. Read it yesterday night before falling asleep.
Dhoni: Yaar ab yeh gadha kahan se aa gaya isme. Ab kya karen? Kuch samajh nahi aa raha… Lets just toss, shall we? Straussy, heads or tails?

Dhoni takes out his lucky coin and spins it high into the air. Strauss calls ‘Tails’. Just as the coin lands on the floor, spins a bit and seems to be about to settle down, Sachin, who had hitherto been looking out of the window, yells
‘Aila plane !’
Everyone rushes to the window to catch a glimpse. Everyone except Andy Flower, who quietly kneels down to have a look at the coin, glances up to check on the distracted players and noiselessly flips the coin to make it Tails up.
And the rest is history.

P.S: Thiis is intended to be a light hearted poke at the situation. Please dont take any offence to anything written above.

Jeez! I am sorry but this sounded so childish. Whoever wrote it tried really hard to make this sound funny, but to me at least it wasn't.

NOM to you Swan.

Haha, that makes two of us!

Smith goes to see his supervisor in the front office. "Boss," he says, "we’re doing some heavy house cleaning at home tomorrow, and my wife needs me to help with the attic and the garage, moving and hauling stuff."

"We’re short-handed, Smith," the boss replies. "I can't give you the day off."

"Thanks, boss," says Smith, "I knew I could count on you."

I heard this from Facebook.

Woman:We know REAL pain. we give birth! The maximum you guys can compare it to is being kicked in the nuts!!
Man: Yeah right, childbirth is more painful?
If thats the height of pain, why do you agree to having more children?
Have you ever heard of a guy saying "kick me again"?

Default G'day Mate, from our Friends in Oz ...

The Claim: The questions below about Australia are from potential visitors. They were posted on an Australian Tourism Website and the answers are the actual responses by the website officials, who obviously have a sense of humour.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Does it ever get windy in Australia? I have never seen it rain on TV, how do the plants grow? (UK).
A: We import all plants fully grown and then just sit around watching them die.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Will I be able to see kangaroos in the street? (USA)
A: Depends how much you've been drinking.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: I want to walk from Perth to Sydney - can I follow the railroad tracks? (Sweden)
A: Sure, it's only three thousand miles, take lots of water.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Is it safe to run around in the bushes in Australia? (Sweden)
A: So it's true what they say about Swedes.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Can you give me some information about hippo racing in Australia? (USA)
A: A-fri-ca is the big triangle shaped continent south of Europe.
Aus-tra-lia is that big island in the middle of the Pacific which does not... oh forget it.
Sure, the hippo racing is every Tuesday night in Kings Cross. Come naked.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Which direction is North in Australia? (USA)
A: Face south and then turn 180 degrees. Contact us when you get here and we'll send the rest of the directions.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Can I bring cutlery into Australia? (UK)
A: Why? Just use your fingers like we do.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Can you send me the Vienna Boys' Choir schedule? (USA)
A: Aus-tri-a is that quaint little country bordering Ger-man-y, which is...oh forget it. Sure, the Vienna Boys Choir plays every Tuesday Night in Kings Cross, straight after the hippo races. Come naked.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Can I wear high heels in Australia? ( UK)
A: You are a British politician, right?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Are there supermarkets in Sydney and is milk available all year round? (Germany)
A: No, we are a peaceful civilization of vegan hunter/gatherers. Milk is illegal.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Please send a list of all doctors in Australia who can dispense rattlesnake serum. (USA)
A: Rattlesnakes live in A-meri-ca which is where YOU come from.
All Australian snakes are perfectly harmless, can be safely handled and make good pets.
Note: The Aussies are lying about this one. They have many killer snakes. And spiders. And wombats. And 'roos. I think they want to kill tourists.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: I have a question about a famous animal in Australia, but I forget its name. It's a kind of bear and lives in trees. (USA)
A: It's called a Drop Bear. They are so called because they drop out of Gum trees and eat the brains of anyone walking underneath them. You can scare them off by spraying yourself with human urine before you go out walking.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: I have developed a new product that is the fountain of youth. Can you tell me where I can sell it in Australia? (USA)
A: Anywhere significant numbers of Americans gather.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Do you celebrate Christmas in Australia? (France)
A: Only at Christmas.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: I was in Australia in 1969 on R+R, and I want to contact the girl I dated while I was staying in Kings Cross. Can you help? (USA)
A: Yes, and you will still have to pay her by the hour.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Will I be able to speak English most places I go? (USA)
A: Yes, but you'll have to learn it first.
