    Late one afternoon, a man walked into a pub - carrying a large brief case, which he placed carefully on the bar counter - and ordered a drink.

    After a while, the bartender asked about the music emanating from the briefcase. The man opened the briefcase to reveal a really tiny human - dressed in a tuxedo - seated at an equally tiny grand-piano.

    After watching the little pianist playing some excellent jazz for a few minutes, the bartender also noticed an oddly-shaped, old brass lamp in the briefcase which the man explained was a genies' lamp. The bartender asked whether he might look at the lamp and rubbed it with his sleeve to bring up the polish.

    POOF! The genie appeared and offered the bartender a wish. The bartender immediately wished for “lots of bucks” whereupon the entire bar was filled with thousands of ducks of all descriptions. Black, brown, green, blue, yellow, large and small.

    After managing the duck chaos the bartender asked the man – “So, what’s with the genie?”

    The man, rather sadly, replied “He has a hearing problem, how else do you think I ended up with a ten-inch pianist?”:p

            Some folks have problems that you haven't even considered yet!

            A 65-year-old man was requested by his doctor for a sperm count as part of his physical exam.

            The doctor gave the man a jar and said, "Take this jar home and bring back a semen sample tomorrow."

            The next day the 65-year-old man reappeared at the doctor's office and gave him the jar, which was as clean and empty as on the previous day.

            The doctor asked what happened and the man explained, "Well, doc, it's like this - first I tried with my right hand, but nothing.
            Then I tried with my left hand, but still nothing.
            Then I asked my wife for help.
            She tried with her right hand, then with her left, still nothing.
            She tried with her mouth, first with the teeth in, then with her teeth out, still nothing.

            We even called up Arleen, the lady next door and she tried too, first with both hands, then an armpit, and she even tried squeezin' it between her knees, but still nothing.

            The doctor was shocked! "You asked your neighbour?"

            The old man replied, "Yep, none of us could get the jar open." :p

              A three-legged dog walks into a saloon in the Old West.

              He slides up to the bar and announces: "I'm looking for the man who shot my paw."

                Teaching Maths through the decades...

                Teaching Maths in 1950:
                A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.
                His cost of production is 4/5 of the price.
                What is his profit?

                Teaching Maths in 1960:
                A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.
                His cost of production is 4/5 of the price, or $80.
                What is his profit?

                Teaching Maths in 1970:
                A logger exchanges a set "L" of lumber for a set "M" of money.
                The cardinality of set "M" is 100. Each element is worth one dollar.
                Make 100 dots representing the elements of the set "M."
                The set "C", the cost of production contains 20 fewer points than set "M."
                Represent the set "C" as a subset of set "M" and answer the following question:
                What is the cardinality of the set "P" of profits?

                Teaching Maths in 1980:
                A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.
                His cost of production is $80 and his profit is $20.
                Your assignment: Underline the number 20.

                Teaching Maths in 1990:
                By cutting down beautiful forest trees, the logger makes $20.
                What do you think of this way of making a living?
                Topic for class participation after answering the question:
                How did the forest birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down the trees?
                There are no wrong answers.

                Teaching Maths in 2000:
                A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100.
                His cost of production is $120.
                How does Arthur Andersen determine that his profit margin is $60?

                Teaching Maths in 2010:
                First read your history and biology books to understand the concept of forests and trees.
                Add all information to your Blog or your Facebook page.
                Hypothetically - would cutting down one tree reduce or increase the threat to global climate change? Explain...

                  EXERCISE FOR ALL PEOPLE

                  Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side.

                  With a 5-kg potato bag in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax.

                  Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer. After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-kg potato bags.

                  Then try 50-kg potato bags and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-kg potato bag in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (I'm at this level)

                  After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each bag.

                    The good ole days....

                    Jannie's Oupa was reminiscing about the good old days...... "Jantjie"! ....... he started with sad tears running down his weathered cheeks , "When I was a seuntjie, my mother could send me down to the shop , the one near the bus stop, with one shilling........ and I come back with bag of potatoes, two loaves bread, three bottles of milk, a big piece of cheese, one packet of tea, and six - sometimes eight - eggs"! ....."Nee man! ......... You can not do that nomore now!!! Too many security cameras." :p

                      "Dear Ma and Pa
                      I am well and hope you are too. Tell my two brothers that the Marine Corps beats working for Farmer Brown by miles. Tell them to join up quickly before all the vacancies get filled.
                      I was restless at first because I get to sleep in bed till nearly 6 a.m. but am getting to enjoy sleeping late. All one has to do before breakfast is smooth out your bed and shine some things. No pigs to feed, mash to mix, wood to split or fire to lay. There is practically nothing to do before breakfast. We have to shave but that is not too bad as there is warm water.
                      Breakfast is strong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon, etc, but kind of weak on chops, potatoes, ham, stead, fried eggplant, pie and other regular food, but you can always sit alongside two city boys who live on coffee. Their food plus yours keeps you going till noon when you get fed again.
                      It's no wonder the city boys can't walk far. We go on route marches which the platoon sergeant says are to harden us. If he thinks so, it's not my place to tell him any different. A "route march" is about as far as to our mailbox back home. The city guys get sore feet and we all ride back to base in trucks. The country is nice but awful flat.
                      This will kill you all with laughing - I keep getting medals for shooting. I don't know why. The bulls-eye is nearly as big as a squirrel's head and doesn't move and it isn't like shooting the wild pigs on the farm. All I have to do here is lie comfortably and hit the bulls-eye. I don't even have to load my own cartridges as they come in boxes.
                      Then we have what is called hand-to-hand combat training. I get to wrestle with the city boys but I have to be real careful because they break easily. It isn't anything like controlling the old bull at home.
                      I'm the best fighter they have here except for old Toons from over in the Free State. I only beat him once. He joined up same time as me but I'm only 5" 6" tall and weigh 70 kg. He's 6" 8" tall and weighs 180 kg.
                      Tell my brothers to hurry up and come join before other folks catch on to this easy way of earning money.
                      Your loving daughter

                        I urgently needed a few days off work, but I knew the Boss would not allow me to take leave… I thought that maybe if I acted 'CRAZY' then he would tell me to take a few days off.

                        So I hung upside down on the ceiling and made funny noises. My co-worker Dave asked me what I was doing. I told him that I was pretending to be a light bulb so that the Boss would think I was 'CRAZY' and give me a few days off.

                        A few minutes later the Boss came into the office and asked 'What are you doing?' I told him I was a light bulb.

                        He said, 'You are clearly stressed out. Go home and recuperate for a couple of days.' I jumped down and walked out of the office...

                        When my co-worker Dave followed me, the Boss asked him '...And where do you think you're going?'

                        He said, 'I'm going home too, I can't work in the dark.' :p

                          I failed my driver’s test. The guy asked me “what do you do at a red light?” I said, I don’t know… look around, listen to the radio…

                            My acknowledgement to Dr Phil Humbert for these:

                            Remember these? For those who never saw the Burma Shave signs, here is a quick lesson in our history of the 1930's and '40's. Before the highways, when everyone drove the old two-lane roads, Burma Shave signs would be posted all over the countryside in farmers' fields. They were small red signs with white letters. Five signs, about 100 feet apart, each containing 1 line of a 4 line couplet......and the obligatory 5th sign advertising Burma Shave, a popular shaving cream of the time.

                            Here are some of the actual signs:

                            DON'T LOSE YOUR HEAD TO GAIN A MINUTE
                            YOU NEED YOUR HEAD YOUR BRAINS ARE IN IT
