  4. Tweeted joke from @jamopo:

    Here ya go, joke for the day…enjoy….

    After numerous rounds of ‘We don’t even know if Osama bin Laden is still alive’, Osama himself decided to send George Bush a letter

    in his own hand writing to let him know he was still in the game. Bush opened the letter and it contained a single line of coded message:


    Bush was baffled, so he e-mailed it to Condoleezza Rice. Condi and her aides had not a clue either, so they sent it to the FBI.

    No one could solve it at the FBI so it went to the CIA, and then to MI6. Eventually they asked the Mossad (Israeli intelligence) for help.

    Within a minute the Mossad emailed the White House with this reply: ‘Tell the President he’s holding the note upside down.

    (yeah I had to turn it upside down, too :P)

  5. The joke’s on me cause I already have a ticket!

    But for the sake of not being left out…

    A guy visits an old friend who owns a farm. Showing him around, the farmer points out the pig sty. “Do you want to see my pig?”

    He then tells the incredible story of how the pig had saved his life when the farm had caught fire. The pig had leapt out of the sty, run into the house and dragged the farmer and his family to safety. Then he told about how the following year, the pig had seen off a pack of dogs that was threatening to slaughter the sheep. Finally, he told how the pig had saved his son’s life last summer by diving into the pond and saving him from drowning.

    “That’s one impressive pig,” the man agreed. But as they approached the sty, he noticed something wrong.

    “How did he get the wooden leg?”

    The farmer winked.

    “With a pig that good, you don’t eat him all at once.”

    Badum – tish.
