    Joke Of The Day

    An Oldie but still funny

    Nelson Mandela is sitting at home watching TV and drinking a beer when he hears a knock at the door.

    When he opens it, he is confronted by a little Chinese man, clutching a clip board and yelling, 'You Sign! You sign!'

    Behind him is an enormous truck full of car exhausts.

    Nelson is standing there in complete amazement, when the Chinese man starts to yell louder, 'You Sign! You sign!'

    Nelson says to him, 'Look, you've obviously got the wrong man', and shuts the door.

    The next day he hears a knock at the door again.

    When he opens it, the little Chinese man is back with a huge truck of brake pads.

    He thrusts his clipboard under Nelson's nose, yelling, 'You sign! You sign!'

    Mr Mandela is getting a bit hacked off by now, so he pushes the little Chinese man back, shouting: 'Look, go away! You've got the wrong man. I don't want them!' Then he slams the door in his face again.

    The following day, Nelson is resting, and late in the afternoon, he hears a knock on the door again.

    On opening the door, there is the same little Chinese man thrusting a clipboard under his nose, shouting, 'You sign! You sign!'

    Behind him are TWO very large trucks full of car parts.

    This time Nelson loses his temper completely, he picks up the little man by neck 'Look, I don't want these! Do you understand? You must have the wrong name!

    who do you want to give these to?'

    The little Chinese man looks very puzzled, consults his clipboard, and says:

    > (It's a beauty)
    > (Wait for it)
    > (Get your best Chinese accent ready)
    > 'You not Nissan Main Deala?'

    An Asian man walks into a New York Currency Exchange with 2000 RMB. He receives US$290 in return.

    The following week, the same Asian man walks into the same currency exchange. He again exchanges 2000 RMB. This time, he receives US$260 in return. The Asian man doesn't understand why he received less money, so he asks the clerk, "Why less money when same 2000 RMB?"

    The clerk replies, "Fluctuations."

    The Asian man goes, "Oh yeah? Fluck you Amelicans too!"

    Whilst we're heading down this road:

    For the purposes of a study into national stereotypes, a German, a Frenchman and a Chinaman were shipped to a deserted island and instructed to create a mini-society. The German was made responsible for infrastructure (buildings, roads etc), the Frenchman for social aspects (food, entertainment) and the Chinaman for supplies.

    3 months later, the ship returned to the island to survey the results of their efforts, but were surprised to find the German and the Frenchman sitting idly on the beach.

    "Where are the items you were given responsibility for?" they were asked by the study leader.

    "Je ne c'est pas, " the Frenchman shrugged, "we had not ze provisions to build or cook or to make l'ambiance."

    "What happened to the Chinaman then? He was responsible for the supplies!"

    The German replied: "Ve hef not see him for tree muntz."

    "But this is very concerning! We need to find him!"

    So immediately the group set off into the jungle in search of the missing Chinaman. They searched high and low until suddenly from behind a bush, leapt a very excited Chinaman shouting: "SUPPLIES!!"

    God was in the process of creating the universe.
    And he was explaining to his subordinates
    'Look everything should be in balance.
    For example, after every 10 deer there should be a lion.
    Look here my fellow angels, here is the country of the United States.
    I have blessed them with prosperity and money.
    But at the same time I have given them insecurity and tension....
    And here is Africa. I have given them beautiful nature.
    But at the same time, I have given them climatic extremes.
    And here is South America. I have given them lots of forests.
    But at the same time, I have given them lesser land so that they would
    have to cut off the forests...
    So you see fellows, everything should be in balance.
    One of the angels asked...
    'God, what is this extremely beautiful country here?'
    God said....... 'Ahah...that is the crown piece of all. 'INDIA',
    My most precious creation.
    It has understanding and friendly People.
    Sparkling streams and serene mountains.
    A culture which speaks of the great tradition that they live.
    Technologically brilliant and with a heart of gold.....
    The angel was quite surprised:

    'But god you said everything should be in balance.'
    God replied --
    'Look at the neighbors I gave them.'

    Another oldie...

    An American decided to write a book about famous churches around the world.

    He bought a plane ticket and took a trip to Orlando , thinking that he would start by working his way across the USA from South to North.

    On his first day he was inside a church taking photographs when he noticed a golden telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read '$10,000 per call'.

    The American, being intrigued, asked a priest who was strolling by what the telephone was used for.
    The priest replied that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 you could talk to God.

    The American thanked the priest and went along his way.

    Next stop was in Atlanta . There, at a very large cathedral, he saw the same looking golden telephone with the same sign under it.

    He wondered if this was the same kind of telephone he saw in Orlando and he asked a nearby nun what its purpose was.

    She told him that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 he could talk to God.

    'O.K., thank you,' said the American.

    He then travelled all across America , Africa, England , Japan , New Zealand . In every church he saw the same looking golden telephone with the same $US10,000 per call' sign under it..

    The American decided to travel to Scotland to see if Scots had the same phone.

    He arrived in Scotland and again, in the first church he entered, there was the same looking golden telephone, but this time the sign under it read '40 pence per call.'

    The American was surprised so he asked the priest about the sign.

    'Father, I've travelled all over the world and I've seen this same golden telephone in many churches. I'm told that it is a direct line to Heaven, but in all of them price was $10,000 per call. Why is it so cheap here?'
    The priest smiled and answered, 'You're in Scotland now, son - it's a local call'.
