20/20 Hindsight...

20/20 Hindsight...
A woman, standing nude, looks in the bedroom mirror and says to her husband, "I feel horrible, I look fat and ugly. Pay me a compliment."

"The husband replies, "Your eyesight's damn near perfect."

He never heard the shot....

Aussies told stop singing in the shower

Aussies should stop singing and daydreaming in the shower because they are wasting money on hot water, one of the country's largest power suppliers said Sunday.

Energy Australia has conducted research showing that the average Australian showers for seven minutes, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported.

The time is taken up by activities such as shaving, playing with toys, singing, daydreaming and brushing teeth, spokesman Anthony O'Brien said.

What the? Vegemite, or not?

Mystified Australian authorities have launched an investigation into reports Vegemite has been banned from entering the United States.

Supermarkets in the US continue to stock Vegemite and have no plans to remove Australia's iconic breakfast spread from their shelves.

Adding to the confusion, a spokesperson from the Australian embassy in Washington DC said US officials had recently said they had no concerns about Vegemite.

Weekend media reports, however, described how US customs officers have been removing jars of Vegemite from travellers' bags as they entered America.

Pity we are so arid

Holden Blimp

Last week my hubby went up in the Holden Airship (blimp) and was bowled over with the experience. He said it was like sailing, and in fact you ride the breeze, including turbulence.

One of the radio jocks here, mentioned it on air last week too, said his wife said "Look at the blimp! It's awesome" and he said "No! It's a big ad," and he refused to look at it. FFS!

Now hubby organised through a lot of string pulling to get this radio jock up in the air, but this bloke has again refused, saying "it's just an ad" oh come on now, get over yourself and the high moral ground, and take the opportunity when it's offered. Makes a great story over dinner if nothing else?

I can't understand people who are so pure and moral that they cant bear to sully themselves with a grand opportunity when you are given one on a plate.

Obviously we know that he cant mention the blimp on air, that’s wasn’t the bloody point, we don’t need to push Holden’s advertising along, not our problem, we were just being friendly and open.

Hey radio jock, don’t get a nosebleed perched up on the higher moral ground.


You just can’t help some people.

What is it answer

Mystery Object – Miner's candle spider

This week’s Mystery whatisit dates from 1870. It is made of metal fashioned to hold a candle underground.

When collecting mining artifacts and miner's lighting devices in particular, a must have item is a vintage candlestick holder, also known as a sticking tommy. These candlesticks were the precursor to oil wick, carbide, and eventually electric cap lamps. Most of the candlestick holders were hand forged by small time blacksmiths. There were some sticks with folding handles, some were very small, and still others were designed to be attached to a carbide lamp for the transition from candles to carbide. The sticks in the mines were pounded into a timber or the rock substrate to provide a neccessary if futile light to work by. The typical and most common sticks will be around 11" in length, have a sharp point on one end, a larger rounded oppposite end, a small cup or cylinder for the candle to be placed into and an attached hook for hanging.

I just thought this was funny


Thought for the day: There is more money being spent on breast implants and Viagra today than on Alzheimer's research. This means that by 2040, there should be a large elderly population with perky boobs and huge erections and absolutely no recollection of what to do with them.



The nun teaching Sunday school was speaking to her class one morning and she asked the question, "When you die and go to Heaven...which part of your body goes first?

Suzy raised her hand and said, "I think it's your hands.

"Why do you think it's your hands, Suzy?" Suzy replied, "Because when you pray, you hold your hands together in front of you and God just takes your hands first.

"What a wonderful answer!" the nun said.

Little Johnny raised his hand and said, "Sister, I think it's your legs. "The nun looked at him with the strangest look on her face. "Now,Little Johnny, why do you think it would be your legs"?

Little Johnny said:
"Well, I walked into Mommy and Daddy's bedroom the other night, Mommy had her legs straight up in the air and she was saying, "Oh God, I'm coming!" If Dad hadn't pinned ! her down, we'd have lost her."

The nun fainted.!
