Week 46 2015

This weeks bit of fun:

Two old friends crossed paths after not seeing one another for almost a decade.
Utkarsh: "What are you doing these days?"Sparsh: "PHD."Utkarsh: "Wow! You're a doctor!"Sparsh: "No, Pizza Home Delivery."
A nun and a priest were crossing the Sahara desert on a camel. On the third day out the camel suddenly dropped dead without warning. After dusting themselves off, the nun and the priest surveyed their situation. After a long period of silence, the priest spoke.

"Well sister, this looks pretty grim." "I know, father." "In fact, I don't think it likely that we can survive more than a day or two." "I agree." "Sister, since we are unlikely to make it out of here alive, would you do something for me?" "Anything father." "I have never seen a woman's breasts and I was wondering if I might see yours."

"Well, under the circumstances I don't see that it would do any harm." The nun opened her habit and the priest enjoyed the sight of her shapely breasts, commenting frequently on their beauty. "Sister would you mind if I touched them?" She consented and he fondled them for several minutes. "Father, could I ask something of you?" "Yes sister?" "I have never seen a man's penis. Could I see yours?"

"I supposed that would be OK," the priest replied lifting his robe. "Oh father, may I touch it?" This time the priest consented and after a few minutes of fondling he was sporting a huge erection. "Sister, you know that if I insert my penis in the right place, it can give life." "Is that true father?" "Yes it is, sister."

"Then why don't you stick it up that camel's ass and lets get the hell out of here."

I was applying for a job and the employment application clearly stated: "Age of Father (if living)," and the same question for my Mother.

I put down the figures 105 and 94 in the spaces provided. The interviewer asked if my parents were truly that old.
I replied, "No, but they would be if they were still living."


Only my second week at our new offices with a lot going on.

I tried to record the ICQPODCAST news Wednesday night but I could not get Skype to work. I think our network engineer has locked something down.

A day late Leslie, Edmund and I recorded the news round table for the current ICQPODCAST episode.

Saturday I ended up doing a number of repair jobs.

Sunday Chris Howard and I went to a radio rally in Coulsdon Surrey. I managed to pick up a number of good books. In the afternoon, Lee, Miranda and the grandchildren visited.

Colin released the latest episode of the ICQPODCAST.
