A newlywed couple was on vacation when they heard about a prophet who lived in the hills nearby…
They were told by their hotel concierge that he always spoke the truth and could tell them their future, so, filled with curiosity, they went to see him. As they approached the hut, they noticed a terrible smell coming from inside but they pressed on.
The old man was sitting in a chair, with casts on both legs. “What do you want from me?” the prophet called out. The couple then realized the source of the foul smell… It was the old seers breath! “He must never brush his teeth,” they both thought.
Undaunted, they replied, “oh wise prophet, we are newly married and were told that you could read our future!”
The prophet answered, “Oh yes. Just like my hands are rough and hard from my many years living on the land, and my legs are so weak that they’ve broken just by stepping into my hut, so shall your lives together be! Rough, hard, weak, and broken! Now be gone!”
With that, they returned to their hotel. The concierge asked them how their visit with the prophet was. They told him they were pretty disappointed and felt like he wasn’t all he was cracked up to be. The wife especially was unimpressed. “He was uncaring, weather beaten, weak, and his breath stunk too!!!”
The concierge answered…
“Well, I guess that’s what you get from the SuperCallousedFragileMysticVexedWithHalitosis!”

A pensioner drove his brand new BMW to 100 mph, looking in his rear view mirror, he saw a police car behind him. He floored it to 140 , then 150, … then 155, … Suddenly he thought,
“I’m too old for this nonsense !”
So he pulled over to the side of the road and waited for the police car to catch up with him.
The officer walked up to him, looked at his watch and said,
“Sir, my shift ends in ten minutes. Today is Friday and I’m taking off for the weekend with my family. If you can give me a good reason that I’ve never heard before, why you were speeding… I’ll let you go.”
The Man looked very seriously at the police man, and replied :-
“Years ago, my wife ran off with a policeman, I thought you were bringing her back.” !!!
The Cop left saying,
" Have a good day, Sir ".
One day Bill complained to his friend that his elbow really hurt.
His friend suggested that he go to a computer at the drug store that can diagnose anything quicker and cheaper than a doctor.
"Simply put in a sample of your urine and the computer will diagnose your problem and tell you what you can do about it.
It only costs $10."
Bill figured he had nothing to lose, so he filled a jar with a urine sample and went to the drug store.
Finding the computer, he poured in the sample and deposited the $10.
The computer started making some noise and various lights started flashing.
After a brief pause out popped a small slip of paper on which was printed:
You have tennis elbow.
Soak your arm in warm water.
Avoid heavy lifting.
It will be better in two weeks."
Later that evening while thinking how amazing this new technology was and how it would change medical science forever, he began to wonder if this machine could be fooled.
He mixed together some tap water, a stool sample from his dog and urine samples from his wife and daughter.
To top it off, he masturbated into the concoction.
He went back to the drug store, located the machine, poured in the sample and deposited the $10.
The computer again made the usual noise and printed out the following message:
"Your tap water is too hard. Get a water softener. Your dog has worms. Get him vitamins. Your daughter is using cocaine. Put her in a rehabilitation clinic.
Your wife is pregnant with twin girls.
They aren’t yours. Get a lawyer.
And if you don’t stop jerking off, your tennis elbow will never get better."
*Got a Chinese take out last night and as I got in the car I heard the bag rustle, so looked over and saw a pair of eyes looking out of the top of bag at me, then disappear back inside.
I was so scared I nearly said profanities!
I looked again, saw the eyes looking out at me then disappear again, so grabbed the bag and ran back into the shop. I asked the guy behind the counter “what the heck was going on?!”
he said "you asked for the Peking duck…”

A true story.
When my kids were younger we were messing about having just finished tea. I can’t remember exactly what I had done, but it was something along the lines of rolling my eyes or waggling my eyebrows.
