Wanting to get on the good side of voters, Vladimir Putin went to visit a school in Moscow to have a chat with the kids. He talked to them about how Russia was a powerful nation and how he wanted the best for the people.

At the end of the talk, there was a section for questions, Little Sasha put her hand up and said, "I have two questions. Why did the Russians take Crimea? And why are we sending troops to the Ukraine?"

Putin said "Good questions." But just as he was about to answer, the bell rang and the kids went to lunch.

When they came back, they sat back down and there was time for some more questions.

Down on Lake Isabella, located in the high desert, an hour east of Bakersfield California, some folks who new to boating were having a problem. No matter how hard they tried, they couldn't get their brand new 22 foot boat, going. It was very sluggish in almost every maneuvre, no matter how much power they applied.

After about an hour of trying to make it go, they putted into a nearby marina, thinking someone there may be able to tell them what was wrong. A thorough topside check revealed that everything was in perfect working condition.

The engine ran fine, the out-drive went up and down and the propeller was the correct size and pitch. So, one of the marina guys jumped in the water to check underneath.

He came up choking on water, he was laughing so hard. Under the boat, still strapped securely in place, was the trailer.


A cop was patrolling late at night off the main highway. At nearly midnight, he saw a couple in a car in the local lover's lane,with the interior light brightly glowing. He carefully approaches the car to get a closer look.

He saw a young man behind the wheel, reading a magazine. He immediately noticed a gorgeous young woman in the rear seat, who was filing her fingernails. Puzzled by this surprising situation, the cop walked up to the car and gently rapped on the driver's window.

The young man lowered his window and said, "Uh yes, Officer?"

The trooper asked, "What are you doing?"

The young man replied, "Well officer, I'm reading a magazine."

Pointing towards the gorgeous young woman in the back seat, the cop asked, "'And what is she doing?"

The young man shrugged, "Sir, I believe she's filing her fingernails."

By that time, the cop was totally confused. A young couple, alone in a car at night in a lover's lane and nothing obscene was happening.

So the cop said, "What's your age, young man?"

The young man stated, "I'm 22, sir."

The cop then pointed to the girl and asked, "And her, what's her age?"

The young man looks at his watch and replied, "She'll be 18 in 11 minutes."


A guy walked into a convenience store and he grabbed a single-serving meal, a single-serving drink, a single-serving toothpaste, a single-serving dessert, single-serving everything.

The guy replied, "Yeah, how could you tell?"

She said, "Because you're really fucking ugly."


It was mealtime during an airline flight.
"'Would you like dinner?" the flight attendant asked John.
"What are my choices?" John asked.
"Yes or no," she replied.

As a man approached, she extended her hand for the ticket and he opened his trench coat and flashed her.
Without missing a beat, she said, "Sir, I need to see your ticket, not your stub."

A lady was picking through the frozen turkeys at the grocery store but she couldn't find one big enough for her family.

The police officer got out of his car as the kid who was stopped for speeding rolled down his window.
"I've been waiting for you all day," the officer said.
The kid replied, "Yeah, well I got here as fast as I could."
When the cop finally stopped laughing, he sent the kid on his way without a ticket.

A truck driver was driving along on the freeway and noticed a sign that read: Low Bridge Ahead.
Before he knew it, the bridge was right in front of him and his truck became wedged under it. Cars were backed up for kilometres.
Finally a police car appeared. The cop walked to the truck driver, put his hands on his hips and said, "Got stuck, huh?"
The truck driver replied, "No, I was delivering this bridge and I ran out of gas."

A college teacher was reminding her class of the following day's final exam.
She said, "Now class, I won't tolerate any excuses for you not being here tomorrow. No other excuses whatsoever!"
A smartarse student asked, "What would you say if tomorrow I said I was suffering from complete and utter sexual exhaustion?"
The entire class was reduced to laughter and snickering.
The teacher smiled at the student and sweetly said, "Well, I guess you'd have to write the exam with your other hand."


A blonde was selling her pet python on eBay. A man rang up and asked if it was big.

A teacher was explaining biology to her 4th grade students. "Human beings are the only animals that stutter," she said.

A little girl raised her hand and said, "I had a kitty cat that stuttered."

The teacher, knowing how precious some of these stories could become, asked the girl to describe the incident.

"Well," the little girl began, "I was in the back yard with my kitty and the rottweiler that lives next door got a running start and before we knew it, he jumped over the fence into our yard!"

"That must've been scary," said the teacher.

"It sure was," said the little girl. "My kitty raised her back and went Ffffff Ffffff Ffffff, but before she could say Fuck off, the rottweiler ate her!


Charlie received the following text from his neighbour Fred.

"I am so sorry Charlie. I've been riddled with guilt and I have to confess. I have been tapping your wife, day and night when you're not around. In fact, more than you. I'm not getting any at home, but that's no excuse. I can no longer live with the guilt and I hope you will accept my sincerest apology with my promise that it won't happen again."

Anguished and betrayed, Charlie immediately went into his bedroom, grabbed his gun and without a word, shot his wife and killed her.

A few moments later, a second text came in, "Damn autocorrect. I meant 'WiFi', not 'wife'."


An old geezer became very bored in retirement and decided to open a medical clinic. He put a sign up outside that said: "Dr Geezer's Clinic. Get your treatment for $500. If not cured, get back $1,000."

A young doctor (let's call him Dr Young), who was positive that this old geezer didn't know beans about medicine, thought that this would be a great opportunity to get $1,000. So he went to Dr Geezer's clinic.

Dr Young: "Dr. Geezer, I have lost all taste in my mouth. Can you please help me?"
Dr Geezer: "Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in Dr Young's mouth."
Dr Young: "Aaagh! - This is gasoline!"
Dr Geezer: "Congratulations! You've got your taste back. That will be $500."

Dr Young became really annoyed and went back after a couple of days, figuring to recover his money.

Dr Young: "I have lost my memory, I cannot remember anything."
Dr Geezer: "Nurse, please bring medicine from box 22 and put 3 drops in the patient's mouth."
Dr Young: "Oh, no you don't, that is gasoline!"
Dr Geezer: "Congratulations! You've got your memory back. That will be $500."

Dr Young, pretty pissed off after having lost $1000, left angrily and came back after several more days.

Dr Young: "My eyesight has become weak - I can hardly see anything!"
Dr Geezer: "Well, I don't have any medicine for that so here's your $1000 back." He handed Dr Young a $10 bill.
Dr Young: "But this is only $10!"
Dr Geezer: "Congratulations! You got your vision back! That will be $500."

The moral of this story - just because you're "Young" doesn't mean that you can outsmart an "old Geezer."


Mr Peabody, the local banker, saw his old friend Tom, an 80-year-old rancher, in town. Tom had lost his wife the year before. Rumour had it he was marrying a mail order bride.

Peabody asked Tom if the rumour was true. Tom replied, "Yes, it is true."

Peabody asked, "May I ask the age of your new bride to be?" Tom replied, "She'll be 21 in November."

Being a wise man, Peabody knew the sexual appetite of a young woman could not be satisfied by an 80-year-old man. He wanted Tom's remaining years to be happy. So he tactfully suggested that Tom should consider getting a hired hand to help him out on the ranch, knowing nature would take its own course. Tom thought this was a good idea and said he would look for a hired hand that very afternoon.

Four months later, Peabody saw Tom in town again. He asked, "How is your new wife?" Tom replied, "Good. She's pregnant."

Peabody was pleased that his sage advice had worked out so well. He asked, "And how's the hired hand?" Without hesitating, Tom said, "She's pregnant too!"


A pharmacist walked into his shop to find a man leaning against the wall.

"What's wrong with him?" he asked his assistant.

"He came in for cough syrup, but I couldn't find any, so I gave him an entire box of laxatives."

"You idiot!" said the chemist, "You can't treat a cough with laxatives."

"Of course you can," the assistant replied, "Look at him - he daren't cough now!"


An old pilot was sitting in the coffee lounge, still wearing his old flight jacket.

As he sat sipping his coffee, a young woman sat down next to him. She turned to the pilot and asked, "Are you a real pilot?"

He replied, "Well, I've spent my whole life flying planes, first in Tiger Moths, then DC-3s. I flew Spitfires and Hurricanes in World War Two and later in the Korean War, I flew Sabre jets. I've taught more than 300 people to fly and given rides to thousands, so I guess I am a pilot. So what are you?"

She said, "I'm a lesbian. I spend my whole day thinking about naked women. As soon as I get up in the morning, I think about naked women. When I shower, I think about naked women. When I watch TV, I think about naked women. It seems everything makes me think of naked women."

The two sat sipping in silence. A little while later, a young man sat down on the other side of the old pilot and asked, "Are you a real pilot?"

The old guy replied, "I always thought I was, but I just found out I'm a lesbian."


A blonde city girl named Amy married a farmer. One morning, on his way out to check on the cows, the farmer said to Amy, "The insemination man is coming over to impregnate one of our cows today, so I drove a nail into the 2 by 4 just above where the cow's stall is in the barn. Please show him where the cow is when he gets here, OK?"

The farmer left for the fields and after a while, the artificial insemination man arrived and knocked on the front door. Amy took him down to the barn. They walked along the row of cows in their stalls and when Amy saw the nail, she told him, "This is the one right here."

The man, assuming he was dealing with an airhead city blonde, asked, "Tell me lady, because I'm dying to know. How would YOU know that this is the right cow to be bred?"

"That's simple," said Amy. "By the nail that's over its stall," she explained very confidently.

Laughing rudely at her, the man asked, "And what, pray tell, is the nail for?"

Amy turned to walk away and said sweetly over her shoulder, "I guess it's to hang your pants on."

A Liberal Party supporter in a wheelchair entered a restaurant one afternoon and asked the waitress for a cup of coffee. The Liberal looked across the restaurant and asked, "Is that Jesus sitting over there?"

The waitress nodded "Yes," so the Liberal requested that she give Jesus a cup of hot chocolate, on him.

The next patron to come in was a One Nation supporter with a hunched back. He shuffled over to a booth, painfully sat down and asked the waitress for a cup of hot tea. He also glanced across the restaurant and asked, "Is that Jesus, over there?"

The waitress nodded, so the One Nation supporter asked her to give Jesus a cup of hot tea - "my treat."

The third patron to come into the restaurant was an Australian Labor Party supporter on crutches. He hobbled over to a booth, sat down and hollered, "Hey there honey! How's about getting me a cold beer?" He too looked across the restaurant and asked, "Isn't that God's boy over there?"

The waitress nodded, so the Labor supporter directed her to give Jesus a cold beer. "On my bill," he said loudly.

As Jesus got up to leave, he passed by the Liberal, touched him and said, "For your kindness, you are healed." The Liberal felt the strength come back into his legs, got up and danced a jig out the door.

Jesus passed by the One Nation supporter, touched him and said, "For your kindness, you are healed." The One Nation supporter felt his back straightening up and he raised his hands, praised the Lord and did a series of backflips out the door.

Then Jesus walked towards the Labor supporter, just smiling. The Labor supporter jumped up and yelled, "Don't touch me! I'm on a disability pension!"


Asking a pilot what he thinks about Civil Aviation Safety Authority is like asking a tree what it thinks about dogs.

Unlike flight crew members, jet engines stop whining when the plane arrives at the gate.

Whoever said that pilots are Gods was dyslexic.

A good flight attendant says, "Good morning captain." A great flight attendant says, "It's morning, Captain."

A Japanese man went to America for sightseeing. On the last day, he hailed a cab and told the driver to drive to the airport.

During the journey, a Honda drove past the taxi. Thereupon, the man leaned out of the window excitedly and yelled, "Honda, very fast! Made in Japan!"

After a while, a Toyota sped past the taxi. Again, the Japanese man leaned out of the window and yelled, "Toyota, very fast! Made in Japan!"

And then a Mitsubishi sped past the taxi. For the third time, the Japanese leaned out of the window and yelled, "Mitsubishi, very fast! Made in Japan!" The driver was a little angry, but he kept quiet. And this went on for quite a number of cars. Finally, the taxi came to the airport. The fare was US$300.

The Japanese exclaimed, "Wah! So expensive!" Thereupon the driver yelled back, "Meter, very fast! Made in Japan!"
