Joke of the week [105 = year 3, #1] Irish joke (2) (July 19 - July 25)

An old Irishman is lying in bed, very ill. His son is sitting at his bedside, expecting the end to come at any moment. The old man looks up at the boy and says, "Son, it's time for you to get me a Protestant minister."
The son is astounded. "But, Dad!" he protests, "You've been a good Catholic all your life! You're delirious. It's a priest ye be wanting now, not a minister. "The old man looks up at him and says, "Son, please. It's me last request. Get a minister for me!" "But, Dad," cries the son, "Ye raised me a good Catholic. You've been a good Catholic all your life. Ye don't want a minister at a time like this!" The old man manages to croak out the words, "Son, if you respect me and love me as a father, you'll go out and get me a Protestant minister right now.
"The son relents and goes out and gets the minister. They come back to the house, and the minister goes upstairs and converts him. As the minister is leaving the house, he passes Father O'Malley coming quickly through the door. The minister stares solemnly into the eyes of the priest. "I'm afraid you're too late, Father," he says. "He's a Protestant now." Father O'Malley rushes up the steps and bursts into the old man's room. "Pat! Pat! Why did ye do it?" he cries. "You were such a good Catholic! We went to St. Mary's together! You were there when I performed my first mass! Why in the world would ye do such a thing like this?"  "Well," the old man says as he looks up at his dear friend. "I figured if somebody had to go, it was better one of
them than one of us."

Owner says “Go ahead, ask him.”
Guy says to the dog “OK, tell me about yourself.”
Dog says, “Well, I was born in Germany and trained by the state to be a guard dog. After I got my certificate I was sent to New York to an exclusive security dealer, where Donald Trump found me. I spent two years guarding Trump Towers, then went to California and worked for Spielberg for three years. Been kicking back for the last 18 months and just enjoying being a dog.”

The guy is dumbfounded.
He says to the shop owner, “Oh my God, that’s amazing. I’ll take him. Why in the world is he only $500?”
"Because he's a liar."

The dog replies, "Well, after obedience school, I ended up working as a police dog, and then joined the Army's K-9 corps. I served in the first Persian Gulf war sniffing for explosives, then I served in Kosovo helping to locate bodies, then after 9-11 I helped find human remains at the World Trade Center site. After all that work, death, and destruction, I decided to retire to Florida." The man goes back to the living room and says, "I am just blown away! That dog is incredible!

Joke of the week [127 = year 3, #23] Santa's flight check (December 20 - December 26)

Santa Claus, like all pilots, gets regular visits from the Federal Aviation Administration, and the FAA examiner arrived last week for the pre-Christmas flight check. In preparation, Santa had the elves wash the sled and bathe all the reindeer. Santa got his logbook out and made sure all his paperwork was in order. He knew they would examine all his equipment and truly put Santa's flying skills to the test. The examiner walked slowly around the sled. He checked the reindeer harnesses, the landing gear, and even Rudolph's nose. He painstakingly reviewed Santa's weight and balance calculations for the sled's enormous payload. Finally, they were ready for the check ride. Santa got in and fastened his seat belt and shoulder harness and checked the compass. Then the examiner hopped in carrying, to Santa's surprise, a shotgun. "What's that for!?" asked Santa incredulously. The examiner winked and said, "I'm not supposed to tell you this ahead of time," as he leaned over to whisper in Santa's ear, "but you're gonna lose an engine on takeoff."

Joke of the week [128 = year 3, #24] "push at Christmas" (December 27, 2004 - January 2, 2005)

                                                                                                   Give Me A Push
It was Christmas Eve. Harry and Shirley had returned from an enjoyable midnight mass at their local church. They arrived home and spent a short while relaxing by an open fire before retiring to bed.
Some time in the middle of the night they were awoken by heavy knocking on their front door. Harry was very unhappy about this. He went downstairs and noisily unlocked the door to be confronted by dishevelled man who was obviously the worse for drink.
'Th'cuse me thur. Will you helpth me with a puth."
"Help you with a push!" said Harry.
"You drunken idiot! Get away from my house before I call the police! Irresponsible people like you should be banned from driving!" And slammed the door into the man's face.
He went back to bed and was astonished to find himself being reprimanded by his wife.
"How could you be so mean and uncharitable." she said. "Surely this evening's sermon must still be ringing in your ears. How the innkeeper turned Joseph and Mary away on Christmas Eve. Here you are presented with the same situation and you show yourself to be no better than that uncaring man. Shame on you." 
Harry was shocked by the relevance of what he had done and was full of remorse. He ran down the stairs and opened the front door, but the man was no longer there.  So, he ran down the path to his front gate to see if the man or his car was along the road; but there was no traffic or people at all.
On the off-chance that the man might still be around somewhere he shouted loudly. "Hey mister, needing a push, where are you?
The unmistakable drunken voice replied immediately. "Over here thur, on the thwing."

25) Arthur Andersen Consultant's answer:
Deregulation of the chicken's side of the road was threatening its dominant market position. The chicken was faced with significant challenges to create and develop the competencies required for the newly competitive market. Andersen Consulting, in a partnering relationship with the client, helped the chicken by rethinking its physical distribution strategy and implementation processes. Using the Poultry Integration Model (PIM), Andersen helped the chicken use its skills, methodologies, knowledge, capital and experiences to align the chicken’s people, processes and technology in support of its overall strategy within a Program Management framework. Andersen Consulting convened a diverse cross-spectrum of road analysts and best chickens along with Anderson consultants with deep skills in the transportation industry to engage in a two-day itinerary of meetings in order to leverage their personal knowledge capital, both tacit and explicit, and to enable them to synergize with each other in order to achieve the implicit goals of delivering and successfully architecting and implementing an enterprise-wide value framework across the continuum of poultry cross-median processes. The meeting was held in a park-like setting, enabling and creating an impact environment which was strategically based, industry-focused, and built upon a consistent, clear, and unified market message and aligned with the chicken’s mission, vision, and core values. This was conducive towards the creation of a total business integration solution. Andersen Consulting helped the chicken change to become more successful.

Joke of the week [136 = year 3, #32] Why did the chicken cross the road? (D) (February 21 - February 27)

                                                                  Why Did the Chicken Cross the Road?
The chicken crossed the road. This fact is rarely disputed. But why did the chicken cross the road? No fully satisfactory explanation has ever been given. At the fourth World-Chicken-Crossing-Conference, held in February 2005 at Henville, Teggsas, a team of distinguished scholars met to consider this matter in depth, but unfortunately no consensus was reached. Here follow twenty-five reasons given to explain the behaviour of the chicken. It is hoped that at the next*) conference further progress toward a definitive answer will be made.
1.     All the other chickens crossed the road and this one didn't want to appear different.
2.     All chickens cross roads sometimes and since there were lots of chickens around it was just a matter of time before some chicken crossed 
      the road and this chicken was the one.
3.     Because it felt like it.
4.     Because it needed the exercise.
5.     Because it wished to avoid meeting the chicken it saw approaching.
6.     Because that's what chickens do.
7.     God ordained from the time of Creation that this chicken should come into the world and should cross the road exactly when it did.
8.     Having spent days and nights searching its soul the chicken finally decided that it had to cross the road and did so.
9.     It all depends on what is meant by "chicken", "road" and "cross".
10. It got bored.
11. It had a death wish.
12. It had already crossed the road 999 times that day and wanted to make it 1000.
13. It had always been intending to and finally decided today was the day.
14. It saw the rooster on the other side and wanted to get laid.
15.  It wanted a change of scenery.
16. It wanted to be famous.
17. It wanted to catch the bus into town.
18. It wanted to show it was not a chicken.
19. It wanted to show it was a mean mother-fuckin' chicken.
20. It was a very confused chicken.
21. It was caught by a freak gust of wind.
22. It was collecting experiences for its next book.
23. It was part of a chicken conga line which happened to be crossing the road.
24. It was trying out its new pair of roller blades on the asphalt.
