Subject: Help: Lost my sense of humour *BG*

Click for the 'PermaThread™: List of all joke threads'


Hi guys,

Here I am, Ms Wet Blanket of 1999-2000. I haven't been joining in much over the last few months with the Mudcat community happenings and it is all because I ...want to kill my boss!! The sneaky, back stabbing, gutless #%$#@%+##@!

I'm not going to go into the long, sordid story here, but I've been under a huge amount of stress over the last 10 months because of him and another (female) manager and I am just in the process now of getting my own back .... [wicked, gleeful giggling] ... in the most professional way, of course (tee hee!) Thank god(s) for Unions and clever Union Organisers (Hi Big Mick!, for other managers with ethics, for professional mediators, and for organisational counsellors.

Well, I was reading the Mudcat thread titles the other day, looking at the BS threads and I realised that I had no interest in opening any of them - and then it came to me in a blinding revelatory flash, that I have *lost my sense of humour* (sob, sigh, moan)

So, I need you all to help me find it. Jokes, funny stories, songs, you name it, all welcome.

Especially songs about the meek inheriting the earth, or of the ilk of The Philadelphia Lawyer (in the database)

(Now way back in old Pennsylvania,

The lights are still shining as bright,

But there's one less Philadelphia lawyer

In old Philadelphia tonight.)

or about the downtrodden fighting back. Think of the scene in the Crocodile Dundee movie where the kangaroo starts "shooting" back - I laughed till I cried when I first saw that scene. I thought the blow fly reference, and the subway scene were a scream too, but I think you have to be from Oz to get those two jokes.

So, to start the ball rolling, the most appropriate song which springs to my mind is The Union Maid (it's in the database)

UNION MAID (Woody Guthrie)

There once was a union maid

Who never was afraid

Of goons and ginks and company finks

And deputy sheriffs who made the raids

She went to the union hall

When a meeting it was called,

And when the Legion boys came 'round

She always stood her ground.

cho: Oh, you can't scare me, I'm sticking to the union,

I'm sticking to the union,I'm sticking to the union

Oh, you can't scare me, I'm sticking to the union,

I'm sticking to the union till the day I die.

Helen - hanging out the wet blanket to dry - at last

Helen, Hi! Nice to meetcha, I'm a *newbie* (groan). I will send some things your way... in the meantime there are some really nasty Psalms I would encourage you to review-- open the book anywhere and chances are it will be.. memorable.

A line I like from the Bible is, "Wise as the serpent, gentle as the dove." It's knowing which calls for which.

I also HIGHLY recommend the movie Falling Down for quick release. But skip the end.

Hang in there!!!

BTW, if your sense of humor really is lost, I am sure you will find it skulking under a table at the Mudcat Cafe.

"Sheriff", he said, on unsteady leg, "Sheriff, Ah've (I've)come for ma (my) paw!"

A man was hauled into court for violating the Endangered Species act. He had shot a California Condor, and the judge socked him with a thousand dollar fine. The he asked him why he did it, and the man said "I wanted to see what it tasted like." The judge said, "Well, I could throw you in jail for 5 years, but, I'm not going to because you killed it to eat. But tell me, what did it taste like? The man replied, "A lot like Bald Eagle."

ALBERT AND THE LION There's a famous seaside place called Blackpool That's noted for fresh air and fun And Mr. and Mrs. Ramsbottom Went there with young Albert, their son. A fine little lad were young Albert, All dressed in his best, quite a swell. He'd a stick with an 'orse's 'ead 'andle; The finest that Woolworth's could sell. They didn't think much to the ocean, The waves they were piddlin' and small. There were no wrecks and nobody drownded, 'Fact, nothin' to laugh at at all! So, seeking for further amusement, They paid, and went into the zoo, Where they'd lions and tigers and camels And cold ale and sandwiches, too. There were one great big lion called Wallace Whose nose was all covered with scars; He lay in a som-no-lent posture With the side of 'is face on the bars. Now Albert 'ad 'eard about lions- 'Ow they was ferocious and wild; To see lion lyin' so peaceful Just didn't seem right to the child. So straightway the brave little feller, Not showin' a morsel of fear, Took 'is stick with the 'orse's 'ead 'andle And stuck it in Wallace's ear. You could see that the lion din't like it, For givin' a kind of a roll, 'E pulled Albert inside the cage with 'im And swallered the little lad - 'ole! Now Mother 'ad seen this occurrence, And not knowin' what to do next, She 'ollered "Yon lion's et Albert!" An' Father said "Ee, I am vexed." They complained to an animal keeper Who said "My, wot a nasty mis'ap; Are you sure it's your boy 'e's eaten?" Pa said, "Am I sure? There's 'is cap!" The manager 'ad to be sent for; 'E came and 'e said "Wot's to-do?" Ma said "Yon lion's et Albert, And 'im in 'is Sunday clothes, too!" Father said "Right's right, young feller- I think it's a shame and a sin To 'ave our son et by a lion And after we paid to come in." The manager wanted no trouble; He took out his purse right away, Sayin' "'Ow much to settle the matter?" Pa said "Wot do you usually pay?" But Mother 'ad turned a bit awkward When she saw where 'er Albert 'ad gone. She said "No, someone's got to be summonsed!" So that was decided upon. And off they all went to p'lice station In front of a Magistrate chap; They told what 'ad 'appened to Albert And proved it by showing 'is cap. The Magistrate gave 'is opinion That no one was really to blame, And 'e said that 'e 'oped the Ramsbottoms Would 'ave further sons to their name. At that Mother got proper blazin': "And thank you, sir, kindly," said she- "Wot, spend all our lives raisin' children To feed ruddy lions? Not me!" Recorded by Stanley Halloway

Lots of boss-related humor at The Dilbert Zone

Can't think of any anti-boss or anti-general authority jokes presently. I had one boss-from-hell. He once told me I would inevitably run into someone I liked worse than him. I never have and doubt I will. (There was a song I posted that only one Mudcatter seemed to notice which was based largely on my perception of his personality. I guess the experience was good for something.) I kept a copy of a book titled "How to Deal With Difficult People" in an obvious place on my desk.

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! - loved the joke from Kendall - hope the sense of humour is getting better.

I found my feelings towards a former boss were helped a great deal by suggesting to my therapist that I rip her head off and spit down her neck (my boss, not the therapist).

The best one though was this.

Get the pattern for a rag doll with seperate limbs - not an all in one jobby. Cut out the pieces and sew them up but instead of sewing the head and limbs on, leave them unattached and sew them up. Sew fasteners like poppers, press studs or velcro (hook tape) where they would join, and then you can have fun ripping the limbs off and chucking them across the office. Great for stress relief and keeping the toddler amused!

Thinking of the words of kids and mums diets... I will never forget the day when my mum got dressed up to go out for a meal with my dad and one of my brothers who must have been about 7 at the time said something like "Mum you look like that person on the telly". My mother was flattered and wanted to find out who she looked like. After a few questions it emerged that he was saying she looked like Hattie Jaques who was quite large...

i usually just tell my boss that one of these days he's going to hear a loud pop.it's going to be his head coming right out of his ass. this is a true story. about 20 years ago at my grandmothers funeral we were all gathered at the cemetery with the casket hanging out over the hole waiting to be lowered down . my aunt grace, a rather large woman, went running down the hill and threw herself on grandmas casket, the whole time yelling, i'm coming next, oh God i'm coming next. my uncle bob yelled out, you will be if you don't get your fat ass off that casket.

Thanks everyone,

I'm having a few chuckles here, so keep this stuff coming and it'll probably ripen into a full belly-laugh or guffaw or more.

Jeri, what was the song you posted. I'd like to see it.

Abby, I'll send you apersonal message with my e-mail address. Thanks.

All the jokes about bars reminds me of this one: a woodworm goes into a pub and says, "Is the bartender here?"

(It's all in the way you say it. I have to warn you, it is one of my "groan" jokes - everyone groans when they hear it.)

Thanks folks, Helen

Oh, and Jeeri & Jon,

I bought two Dilbert books in the middle of last year but it was just too close to the reality - more autobiographical than funny, because I have been living in Dilbertland with a boss just like that. It made me want to cry not laugh.

I'm probably ready to read it now, though.

Have you seen the User Friendly comic strips - about an Internet Service Provider and it's customer support staff - very Dilbertesque.

The bass holds more beer.

Theres a session in a small pub in Northern Ireland. Fellow walks in with a package, sets it on the bar, orders a pint and turns to listen to the music. The musicians watch him warily but he just stands there. After several pints and tunes, the fiddler gets up and comes over."Excuse me friend" he says,"but we'd all like to know what you've got in the package?" Yhe stranger answers, "Fifteen pounds of Gelignite and twenty detonators." "Oh thaks be to God" says the fiddler."We were afraid it was a bodhran!"

Three pints o Guinness

Irish fella walks into a pub in Toronto and orders three pints of Guinness. The bartender pours them, and the fella lines them up in a row, takes a sip from the first one, than a sip from the second one, then a sip from the third. He continues this until they're all empty, then orders three more. The bartender says, "Sir, I don't mean to be telling you your business and I'm sure you can hold your liquor, but do ye not know they'd stay fresh longer if you just drank one at a time--they're goin flat when you're halfway through."

The customer explains, "Sure I know that, but I'll tell ye the way of it. I have two brothers I grew up with in County Kerry, one is in California now, the other's in Australia, and I'm here in Canada. But the night before we all left Ireland--we'd had a few already, mind ye--we made a promise that we'd each drink this way, to remember the good days when we all drank together, and why not? So it's as if I'm still drinkin with me brothers."

The fellow became a regular at the pub, always drinking three stouts at once, and came in several times a week for about six months. Then one day he came in and as the bartender started to pull his three beers, the man raised a hand and said, "Just two tonight, Jimmy."

The bartender stared for a second. The room went dead silent. Then the bartender said, "Sure, and these are on the house for I'm sorry for yer troubles. Which of your brothers has passed away?"

The Kerryman then stared back for a second, and burst out laughing. "No, that's not it at all. My brothers are both fine, ye see, but I've had to give up the drinking!"

Sorry.]

Spare us the pain"? Oh for crying out loud, Helen. Anyone can see from the previous posts we must all be somewhat masochistic, so please bring on your best (or worst) whichever you consider it. Just to prove how masochictic some are, I submit the following:

During the reign of Alexander the Great there where many folks with powers long forgotten. One was Alexander's personal alchemist. He designed for Alexander a piece of cloth which was soaked in certain chemicals. These chemicals would change color with the passing of time. He advised his master that if he would wear this piece of cloth on his person that he would instantly know what time of day it was by the color of it! Alexander took the rag and wrapped it around his wrist, much like a modern day watch. This new invention soon became known through out the land as.......Alexander's Rag Time Band.

A duck waddles into a bar, hops up onto the stool and asks, "Got any grapes?"

The bartender glares at him. "Does this look like a grocery store? No grapes here."

"Okay," says the duck. He hops off the stool and waddles out.

Three days in a row, the duck comes into the bar and asks for grapes. Finally, the bartender is at the end of his patience, and explodes, "For the last time, this is a bar! We do not have grapes! The next time you ask for grapes, I'm going to nail your bill to the bar!"

The duck says, "Okay," and waddles out of the bar.

The next day, in comes the duck. As he hops up onto the stool, the bartender glares suspiciously. The duck asks, "Got any nails?"

The bartender is fed up. "This is not a hardware store, either! We have no nails!"

The duck looks him in the eye and says, "Okay...Got any grapes?"

Another "hard of hearing" story:

A older couple from Vermont were driving south and stopped at a service station in a small town in Tennessee. The old gentleman got out to fill up his car and the service attendant came out to check his oil. The attendant asks, "where ya from?" The old man says, "we're from Vermont." At that, his wife asks, "what did he say?" The old man says, "he asked where we're from and I told him Vermont."

The attendant then says, "hey, I used to live in Vermont." Before the old man could ask him where, his wife said, "what did he say?" The old man says, "he said he used to live in Vermont."

The old man asks the attendant where he lived in Vermont and he responded, "on a farm in mid-state Vermont." The old man says, "hey, we live in mid-state Vermont." At that the wife again asks, "what did he say?" The old man says, "he said he used to live on a farm in mid-state Vermont."

The attendant then says, "yeah, I lived there with a nice lady. She sure could cook and man did she keep a good house. But brother, was she ever lousy in bed." And the old woman again says, "what did he say?" The old man says, "he says he thinks he knows you."

And then theres the one about the Indian chief who had to sit in the hotel lobby because he didn't have a reservation. (and it only gets worse)

Drunk walks into a bar. 'bartender. If I can show you something you've never seen will you give me a drink?" "sure" says the barkeep and with that the man pulls a tiny piano out of one pocket and a mouse out of another. The mouse sits down at the piano and starts to play and it is very evident that he can REALLY play piano."Thats incredable!" sez the barkeep. "You ain't seen nothing." sez the drunk. From another pocket he takes a frog who begins to sing. Jazz, soul, rock, funk, the frog does it all."Good for another drink/" sez the drunk and the drink is forthcoming.

Another man has been watching all this in amazment and comes over."I'm a T.V. producer and I'll give you $50,000 for the pair." "Aw" sez the drunk,"I couldn't do that. I mean I've had em a long time." But the man insists and finally the drunk agrees to sell the frog for $50,000.

The man pays him and walks out with his prizeand the barkeep sez"Man, are you nuts? Breaking up an act like that?"

The drunk grins."He didn't get such a good deal. You see, the mouse is a ventriloquist!"

The cutesy pictures clash rather nicely with the sayings too.

Okay, next joke:

Stop me if I've told you this one before. (Ha ha, I'm unstoppable *BG*

Three pieces of string go into a bar and sit down at one of the tables. They argue among themselves about who is going to go to the bar to order the drinks, because they're pretty sure the publican doesn't serve alcohol to pieces of string.

So the first one goes up to the barman & says, really confidently, "Three beers thanks, mate!"

The barman says, "Sorry I don't serve pieces of string. Go somewhere else."

So the first one goes back to his mates and says, "Come on, let's go somewhere else. He's not going to serve us."

But the second one says he'll give it a go, so he goes up to the bar and orders three beers but the barman says "Look, I already told your friend, I don't serve pieces of string here, now clear off!"

So the second one goes back to the table and says, "Let's get out of here. He won't serve us."

But the third one says, "Hang on a minute, I've got an idea."

He stands up, ties himself in a knot, musses his hair up a little bit and goes to the bar. "Three beers thanks, mate!"

The barman looks at him suspiciously and says, "Wait a minute, aren't you a piece of string?"

And the third guy says, "No, I'm afraid not!"

Sorry, sorry - just keep working at it and you'll get it if enlightenment eludes you. Saying it aloud helps.

All the while he's visiting, he's eating peanuts from a bowl on her nightstand, until without realizing it, he's eaten them all. As he's about to leave, he says, "granny, I'm sorry I've eaten all your peanuts, but don't worry, I'll bring some more tomorrow." She says, "You don't have to do that. I just suck the chocolate off them, anyway." So Murphy goes into the next room to visit his 95 year old granddad. As he enters the room, the nurse is putting the old guy down for the night. She says, "Come on Grandpa Murphy, it's bedtime. That means it's time for your hot chocolate and Viagra." Murphy takes the nurse aside and says, "What's this about hot chocolate and Viagra?" She says, "Oh, it's wonderful. The hot chocolate makes him sleep, and the Viagra keeps him from rolling out of bed." All the best, Helen.

I kind of get the idea for LEJ's hunt & pecker joke, but I'm still working on the safeway joke from Molly Malone.

Annap,

On the Oz national news this morning there was a story about a man from near Newcastle, where I live, who got into a fight last night and got his "Peter" cut off. Rushed to a Sydney (state capital, 100 miles south) hospital for emergency surgery - so a very timely joke.

Also, Annap, I am working my butt off looking for another job, but they aren't so easy to find. I'll do it though, soon, I'm determined. We've got a mediation session booked on Friday morning with the local Community Justice Centre so we'll see what outcomes (probably not much change) we get out of that. That's only to give me some breathing space to find another job, though. At least the HR Manager stopped him from readvertising my job just after Christmas.

Helen

Pinocchio goes to visit Gepetto. "I've got a problem," he says. "My girlfriend has been complaining that whenever we make love, she gets splinters."

Gepetto answers, "That's my fault. I must have neglected that part of your anatomy. But the solution is simple. Just take this piece of sandpaper and sand yourself down until you're nice and smooth, then try it again."

A week later, Gepetto runs into Pinocchio on the street. "Hey, Pinocchio," he says, "how's your girlfriend?"

"Girlfriend?" says Pinocchio. "Who needs a girlfriend?"

  There once was a poet named Knight  Whose limericks were never quite right  They really were fine  Until the fifth line  Then he always managed to bollix them up somehow  
Adam was walking around the garden of Eden feeling very lonely, so God asked him, "What is wrong with you?" Adam said he didn't have anyone to talk to.

God said that He was going to make Adam a companion and that it would be a woman. He said, "This person will gather food for you, cook for you and when you discover clothing she'll wash it for you. She will always agree with every decision you make. She will bear your children and never ask you to get up in the middle of the night to take care of them. She will not nag you and will always be the first to admit she was wrong when you've had a disagreement. She will never have a headache and will freely give you love and passion whenever you need it". Adam asked God, " What will a woman like this cost?" God replied, "An arm and a leg." Then Adam asked, "What can I get for a rib?"

to follow kat's lead: (This is one ideal not masquerading as one reality)

When God Made Moms (God Bless The Women I Know)

By the time the Lord made mothers, he was into his sixth day of working overtime. An Angel appeared and said, "Why are you spending so much time on this one"? And the Lord answered and said, "Have you seen the spec sheet on her? She has to be completely washable, but not plastic, have 200 movable parts, all replaceable, run on black coffee and leftovers, have a lap that can hold three children at one time and that disappears when she stands up, have a kiss that can cure anything from a scraped knee to a broken heart, and have six pairs of hands."

The Angel was astounded at the requirements for this one. "Six pairs of hands! No Way!" said the Angel. The Lord replied, "Oh, it's not the hands that are the problem. It's the three pairs of eyes that mothers must have!" "And that's just on the standard model?" the Angel asked.

The Lord nodded in agreement, "Yep, one pair of eyes are to see through the closed door as she asks her children what they are doing even though she already knows. Another pair, in the back of her head, are to see what she needs to know even though no one thinks she can. And the third pair are here in the front of her head. They are for looking at an errant child and saying that she understands and loves him or her without even saying a single word."

The Angel tried to stop the Lord. "This is too much work for one day. Wait until tomorrow to finish." "But I can't, " the Lord protested, "I am so close to finishing this creation that is so close to my own heart. She already heals herself when she is sick AND can feed a family of six on a pound of hamburger and can get a nine year old to stand in the shower."

The Angel moved closer and touched the woman. "But you have made her so soft, Lord." "She is soft," the Lord agreed, "but I have also made her tough. You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish."

"Will she be able to think?" asked theAngel. The Lord replied, "Not only will she be able to think, she will be able to reason, and negotiate."

The Angel then noticed something and reached out and touched the woman's cheek. "Oops, it looks like you have a leak with this model. I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one." The Lord replied, "That's not a leak. That's a tear!"

"What's the tear for?" the Angel asked. The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy, her sorrow, her disappointment, her pain, her loneliness, her grief, and her pride." The Angel was impressed. "You are a genius, Lord. You thought of everything, for WOMAN is truly amazing!"

Hi again

I have been checking in on this thread every day, sometimes twice a day in the lead-up to the mediation session I had yesterday morning with my boss & another manager. The session went fairly well (grimace), but my suspicions of the underhanded dealings of the boss have been well & truly confirmed for me, although he has spent a great deal of energy inventing words to cover his tracks. The female manager approached the mediation session in a much more open & balanced way and I now respect her a lot - I did already for some things, but we haven't had as much contact as we should have so I had not had a chance to get to know her well.

We have come to an agreement about what is to happen to me and it will work in the short term, especially because I will be reporting to the manager & not the boss, but now - as seems usual for the last two years, five years, who knows how long? - I am again desperately searching for a job because I will definitely have no more work after the end of June from these guys.

So, thanks to all of you for making a mighty contribution towards keeping me sane and relatively balanced over the last few days with this thread, and also to everyone at Mudcat for just being yourselves for as long as I have been here. I can feel my sense of humour doing a U-turn somewhere way out there on the road to nowhere, and heading back home to me.

Okay, end of serious transmission. Let me think of another one of my awful jokes to annoy you with.

Okay, the only one I can think of is this one:

A guy looks out of his window one morning and notices that the garbage truck has been and his big rubbish bin on wheels is there but his next door neighbour's bin is missing.

Being a good neighbour he goes and knocks on the door and says "Where's your bin?" and the other guy says "I'se bin away on holidays".

The first one says, "No, where's your wheelie-bin?".

The neighbour looks worried, looks around a bit, checks up & down the street, and says "I'se really bin in jail, man, but don't you tell anyone!"

Late, as ever, but here are my contributions.

Three couples were seeking admission to the Church. At the end of the course of instruction, the priest said, "Now, as a sign of your devotion to the Church, you must all abstain from marital relations [that's sex, if you must know] for a week. I'll see you all back here next Sunday."
A week later, they all gathered again, and the priest said to the first couple, who were somewhat advanced in years, "Were you successful in your devotion?" And they said, "Why, yes, we did manage all right." "Very well, then, welcome to the church," the priest replied.
"And you?" he asked the second couple, who were of a middling age. "Well, it was difficult, but this is important to us so we were able to do it." "Congratulations, welcome to the church," he said as they ran off.
"And how did you folks do?" he asked the young couple. "Well, father," said the young man, "we were doing all right for a while but when she bent down to pick up a can of tomatoes I just couldn't stop myself." "I'm sorry, my son, but I can't let you into the Church." "Oh, that's all right, Father, we understand," said the young woman. "They won't let us back into Safeway, either."

Then there was the ethnic who flunked out of pharmacy school...he couldn't figure out how to get the little bottle into the typewriter.

And then there's the world's shortest cowboy song:
Out in the West Texas town of El Paso,
One little kiss and Florina, goodbye.

Good luck, Helen. Illegitimi non carborundum.

There were two bell ringers in church, one tied his penis to a bell rope-the other told (tolled) him off.

Quazimodo was up on the roof of the cathederal with Esmarelda. all of a sudden he was flying through the air towards the ground- his dying words as he landed were "you stupid bitch, when I asked you to toss me off, I didn't mean off the bloody roof"!! -splat!! Eric

We all know that tampons are spongey
And oftentimes get rather grungy
But why they have strings
Among other things
Is so that the crabs can all bungee

Baaaaaaaad

That's the "bulbenik" story in *Joys of Yiddish* -- good luck with the new position you WILL find -- and everything will be on the up.

Petr, mislaying it is one thing but I find searching for it again quite fun.

G'day all,

I'll refresh this again because A friend of mine is suffering much the same sort of experience that led Helen to start the thread back ... in February. I hope some of this helps.

Regards,

Bob Bolton

Hi Bob,

G'day all,
I'm the one that Bob Bolton mentioned.....I am leaving my job in mid-December as I can no longer cope. My boss controls his staff (me and one other) by intimidation and bullying. In the meantime I am looking for another job - wish me luck!
Cheers
JennieG
