About ten eggs are lined up in the fridge door. The one at the end of the row starts laughing by himself and says to his neighbour:
— Bend over and look at the face of the one at the far end.
The other one complies and starts laughing.
— Oh, yeah, well, he's not spoiled, poor guy.
He discreetly passes the word to his neighbour, who looks sideways, and starts to puff as well:
— You've got to be kidding me!
He also says it to his neighbour, and so on until the eighth who says in a very low voice in the ninth:
— Did you see the look on your neighbour's face? Is that crazy?
The other looks at him in dismay and says:
— You're an idiot, it's a kiwi.
Lawyer under oath
A lawyer, a father of 12 children, was always refused a rental because landlords feared that a large and turbulent family would damage their property. One day, he told his wife to take a walk to the cemetery with 11 children. Then he left with the twelfth child to try to rent a house. When the landlord asks him if he has any other children, the lawyer, who does not want to lie, answers:
— Eleven more. They're at the cemetery with their mother.
And the lawyer finally gets his housing. So he says to his son:
— See, there's no point in lying. It's all about using the right words.
And the son became a politician.
A young man had taken a trip to Kenya after graduation. On a safari, as he had wandered away from his group during a stopover, he came face to face with a baby elephant that appeared to have injured its left front leg, which he held up. The man realized that the animal might charge him, but as he did not seem aggressive, he approached cautiously and saw that the calf had a huge splinter planted at the base of its leg. Very calmly, the young man knelt on the ground and, using his knife, removed the splinter from the leg. As soon as the animal had been treated, he was able to put his leg back on the ground, he looked at the young man for a long time, then he barked noisily and left.
The young man never felt threatened by the baby elephant and he kept the magical memory of this rare moment all his life.
20 years later, the man went to the zoo with his 11-year-old son. When they both passed the elephant enclosure, one of the elephants suddenly started to hit the ground with its left front leg. The man began to have doubts. Could it be the same elephant that he had treated 20 years earlier? He moved a little closer to the pen and the animal kept hitting the ground more and more. Then the man stepped over the enclosure wall and walked towards the elephant. The elephant lifted him up, grabbing him by the waist with its trunk, and then smashed him against the wall.
It couldn't have been the same elephant.
On the plane
Passengers on a discount flight are seated and wait for the pilots.
Suddenly, two men enter the plane in pilot's uniforms and wearing dark glasses. One of them is accompanied by a guide dog, and the other is using a white cane to feel his way. They walk down the aisle, enter the cockpit and close the door.
Several passengers laugh nervously and all look at each other with an expression ranging from surprise to fear or scepticism; some look for the hidden cameras.
Moments later, the aircraft's engines ignited and the aircraft picked up speed on the runway. It's going faster and faster and never seems to take off. The passengers look through the windows and realize that the aircraft is heading straight towards the lake at the end of the runway.
The plane is now taxiing very fast on the runway and many travellers realize that they will never take off and that they will all plunge into the lake.
The screams of frightened passengers fill the plane, but at that moment, the plane takes off slowly, without any problem.
Passengers then recover from their emotions, laughing, feeling stupid for having been tricked by this bad joke. A few minutes later, the incident is forgotten.
In the cockpit, the pilot feels the instrument panel, finds the autopilot button and activates it.
Then he says to the co-pilot:
— You know what scares me?
— No, answer the other one.
— One of these days they're gonna scream too late and we're all gonna kill ourselves!

Realities of life…
My wife and I were sitting in bed last night, talking about the realities of life. We were talking about living or dying. I told her, “Never let me live in a vegetative state, dependent on a machine and liquids. If you see me in that state, pull the plug on everything that keeps me alive.”
Then she got up, unplugged the cable from the TV and took away my beer.
At the Parisian bistro
In Paris, a Belgian man comes to a bar and settles down in front of the counter. The owner greets him and asks him:
— Good morning, sir, what'll you have?
The Belgian answers spontaneously:
— A gin and tonic… Thank you!
He drinks himself into a bottle and immediately heads for the exit. The boss calls out to him:
— Hey, mister, you didn't pay the bill!
The customer turns around and says:
— But I didn't ask you, you asked me, “What will you have?”. You shouldn't take me for a fool just because I'm Belgian!
To avoid a scandal in front of his other clients, the boss, furious, lets the Belgian out and ends up forgetting the story.
But the following month, the Belgian reappears in the bar and this time, the boss who remembers the sad misadventure remains silent.
The Belgian remains motionless in front of the counter for several minutes, then for several hours.
He ends up waving to the boss who's gloating and says:
— I'd like some peanuts!
— All right, but you're gonna pay this time?
The Belgian, taking 50c out of his pocket, says:
— Of course, since I'm ordering them from you.
Once his plate of peanuts is served, the Belgian starts to crush them one by one with a spoon to make powder. Surprised, the boss asks:
— Mind if I ask what you're doing?
The Belgian explains:
— Yeah, I stack peanuts to go fishing. I use them as bait. Actually, this technique works very well for big fish.
Curious, the boss is asking:
— Is that right? What will you have with that?
And the Belgian answers spontaneously:
— Gin and tonic.
At the baker's
— Hi, I'd like a chocolate TUGLOJCYCSZE.

— What's that? A TUGLOJCYCSZE with what???
A middle-aged woman has a heart attack. She ends up in the hospital. While she's on the operating table, close to death, she has a near-death experience. She sees God and asks him.
— Is it my time?
— No, you've got 43 years, 2 months and 8 days left.
When she wakes up, she decides to stay in the hospital, have her face lifted, have liposuction, inject collagen into her lips, do her breasts, slim her hips, lift her buttocks and everything else. Since she had a long life ahead of her, it was worth it.
After her last surgery, she gets out of the hospital, crosses the street and gets hit badly by an ambulance.
When she came before God, she asked him:
— It seems to me that I had to live another 40 years and more! Why didn't you avoid me that ambulance?
And God answers:
— I didn't recognize you!
You're so stupid…
— You're stupid! You're really stupid! It's not possible you're that stupid! I've never seen such a stupid idiot. Look, it's simple, if there was a competition for idiots, you'd finish second!
— Why second?
— Because you're too stupid!
One night a drunk guy rings the doorbell at 4:00 in the morning.
He gets up, approaches the intercom, groping, and asks:
— What do you want?
The other one says:
— Come and push me! You've got to come and push me!
Exasperated, he said to him:
— I don't know you, it's 4:00 in the morning, you wake me up to tell me to push you? Go away!
Back in his room, he goes back to bed and tells his worried wife about the conversation that has just taken place.
Unhappy, his wife says to him:
— Still, you're exaggerating. Have you ever had a breakdown before, you could have pushed that poor man!
— Yeah, but he's also drunk.
— All the more reason to push him, he's not going to make it on his own. No, I really don't recognize you and I'm very disappointed in your attitude.
Feeling remorse, he gets dressed and comes down. He opens the door. It's dark and he can't see much. Then he says outloud:
— Hey, man, I'm gonna push you! Where are you?
And the drunk guy says:
— Well there, on the swing!
At the tailor's
Marcel had a perfect professional life, which led him directly to success.
Only, he had a chronic headache that only got worse with each passing year. When his mental health and emotional life were finally threatened, he went to see a doctor.
After traveling from specialist to specialist, he finally found a doctor who could solve his problem:
— The good news is I can cure your headache. The bad news is I have to castrate you for it. Your case is very rare because you suffer from a crushing of your testicles against the base of your spine, and that causes terrible headaches. The only way to relieve the pressure is for me to cut off your testicles.
Marcel was very affected and depressed by this news. He even wondered if there was any point in continuing to live. But even if he could not find an answer to this question, he still submitted to the torment of the scalpel.
When he came out of the hospital, his head was much better, but he felt like he had lost something. As he walked down the street, he realized he had become someone else. He could live a different life now. Walking past a men's fashion store, he thought: “This is what I need, a new jacket.”
So he went into the shop and told the salesman:
— I'd like a jacket.
The salesman looks at him and says:
— Let's see… size 52, long.
— Oh, yes! How do you know?
— It's my job, replied the salesman.
Marcel tried on the jacket. It fit him like a glove. As Marcel looked at himself in the mirror, the salesman said:
— How about a shirt with that on it?
After thinking for a second, Marcel nodded.
— Let's see… a 42 wide.
Marcel was surprised.
— Oh, yes! How do you know?
— That's my profession, replied the other.
Marcel tried on the shirt. Perfect. As he was adjusting the collar, the salesman said:
— How about a pair of shoes?
Marcel didn't hesitate any longer.
— It's okay.
The salesman looked at his customer's feet and said:
— Oh, yes! How do you know?
That's my job, said the other.
Marcel tried on the shoes. They fit him like slippers. He wandered around the store to test their comfort, and the salesman took the opportunity to sell him a hat, a sweater and a shirt, always giving the exact size at a glance.
Finally, the shopkeeper offered him a pair of new underpants. Marcel accepted, and the salesman then declared:
Marcel laughed again.
— Now you've made a mistake. I've always worn a size 40!
Calmly, the salesman shook his head and said:
— Oh, no, you don't! You can't wear size 40. It's gonna be too tight! It'll crush your testicles and give you a fucking headache!
A man walks a penguin down the street. A policeman stops and orders him to take it to the zoo.

Still too early

— Oh, my God! Make this lion a Christian!
And then, miraculously, the lion stops, also kneels down and prays:
— Oh, my God! Bless the food I'm about to take.

Banker on wedding night
A banker marries a woman who's already been married six times.
On the wedding night, the young wife said to her husband:
— Darling, be more gentle, please. I'm a virgin.
Our banker's got his hands full with it.
— Huh, what? But you've already been married six times!

My fourth was a sales manager: he said he was familiar with the product, but didn't know how to use it.
The fifth was a civil servant, telling me that he knew what had to be done, but that it was not within his competence.
And my sixth, well, was a computer scientist. He said that if everything was working normally, it was better not to touch anything.
So, I married you, a banker, to be sure I'd get laid!
A family's having lunch. The 10-year-old girl doesn't eat much, and she keeps her nose to the grindstone. After a while, she says:
— I have an announcement to make.
Silence is made and all listen.
— I'm not a virgin anymore, and she starts crying.
Again a long silence, and then the father speaks to his wife:
— It's your fault, always dressed and made up like a whore, you think you're an example for your daughter? Always wallowing on the couch, pussy in the air… It's pathetic, that's how problems happen!
In turn, the wife addresses her husband:
— And you, do you think you're an example? Wasting your paycheck on bitches who sometimes walk you to the front of the house, you think you're an example for your 10-year-old daughter?
And the father to continue:
— And her big sister, that no-good sister, with her hairy, drug-addicted boyfriend, always making out and fucking in every nook and cranny of the house, do you think that's an example? And it goes on and on.
The grandmother takes her granddaughter by the shoulders to comfort her and asks:
— So my little girl, how did this happen?
And the little one answered by choking her sobs:
— It's the priest.
— What do you mean, the priest?
— The priest chose another girl to be the Virgin in the Christmas Crib.

Cape and sword
Long ago there lived an officer of the Royal Army named Captain Bravado. He was a man, a real man, who showed no fear when facing his enemies.
One day, while sailing the seven seas, he saw a pirate ship approaching. His crew was very nervous. Captain Bravado shouted:
— Go get me my red shirt!
The first officer fetched the captain's red shirt and the captain immediately put it on. He then led his crew into battle and killed all the pirates. That night, all the men were sitting outside celebrating their victory. One of them asked the captain:
— Captain, why did you ask for your red shirt before the battle?
— If I'd been injured in the attack, my blood wouldn't have shown up on the shirt. And the men would have continued to fight without fear.
All the men looked at him with admiration: “What a brave man!”
As the sun rose the next morning, the sailors saw not one, not two, but ten pirate ships approaching. The crew watched in horrified silence and waited for the captain's orders.
Captain Bravado calmly looked at the 10 ships, then stared at his first officer and calmly said to him:
— Get me my brown pants!
In a brewery
In a brewery, a woman approaches the bar. She signals to the bartender to come closer. When he arrives, she waves to him in a rather seductive way to get closer. He bends over and she starts stroking his beard.
— Are you the manager? she says with a sensual caress on her face.
— Uh… no, actually, says the bartender.
— Can you go get him? Ask the woman as she runs her hand through the bartender's hair.
— Unfortunately no. The bartender is obviously enjoying the situation.
— Can you do something for me? Ask the woman as she runs her fingers over the bartender's lips.
— Of course, the man answers.
— I'd like to leave a message for him, she says, slipping one finger and then the other into the mouth of the bartender who sucks them lightly.
— What's the message? asks the bartender.
— Tell him there's no soap and paper in the ladies' room.
An old grandpa goes to the doctor with his wife.
The doctor examines him and says:
Sir, I'd need a physical. I'd need a sample of your urine, semen and feces.
Since Grandpa can't hear the doctor's question very well, he repeats it, but it doesn't change anything.
Then his wife turns to him and screams at him:
— THE DOCTOR WOULD LIKE YOUR UNDERWEAR!
Once upon a time, there was a king who wanted to go fishing. He called his meteorologist and asked him what the weather would be like for the next few hours. The meteorologist reassured him that he could go fishing because there would be no rain. Since the queen lived near where he would go, the king put on his best clothes.
On the way, he met a peasant riding his donkey who, on seeing the king, said to him:
— Lord, it is better that you turn back, for it will rain a lot in a short time!
Of course, the king went on thinking: how can this guy know better than my very well-paid specialist who told me otherwise? Let us continue. And so he did… And of course, it rained like hell. The king was soaking wet, his queen didn't care to see him in such a pitiful condition.
Furious, the king returned to the palace and fired his employee. He summoned the peasant and offered him the job, but the peasant refused:
— Lord, I'm not the one who understands anything about weather and climate, but I know that if my donkey's ears are turned down, then it means it's going to rain.
And the king hired the donkey.
Thus began the custom of recruiting donkeys for the highest paid positions as advisors.
In a bus full of little old people on a special tour for the elderly in Lourdes, a granny taps the driver's shoulder and hands him a good handful of peanuts.
The astonished driver thanks her and swallows the peanuts in one gulp. It's a good thing, he was just a little peckish.
Five minutes later, the granny comes back with a new handful. The driver thanks her again and swallows the peanuts.
Five minutes later, the same trick starts all over again.
After ten handfuls, the driver can't swallow any more, he asks the granny:
— Grandma, it's very kind of you to stuff me with peanuts, but don't your 40 colleagues want some?
— Well, no. You see, with our teeth, we can't chew them. We only like chocolate around them.

— Don't move till I tell you. You are a statue! I saw the same one at the Durands'.
Then the husband comes in and asks his wife:
— What's this?
— This? That's a statue. The Durands put one in their room and I liked it so much I bought the same one.
And there was no more talk of the statue.
At 2:00 in the morning she was asleep and her husband was still watching TV. Suddenly, he got up from the couch, went to the kitchen, made a sandwich, took a can of beer and went back to the bedroom. There, he walks over to the statue and says to it:

A man in the basket of a balloon doesn't know where he is. He goes down and sees a woman on the ground. He descends even lower and calls out to her:
— Excuse me, lady! Can you help me? I had promised a friend to meet him and I am already an hour late because I don't know where I am anymore.
The woman on the ground answers:
— You're in the basket of a hot-air balloon about 30 feet above the ground. You are exactly 49°, 51' and 32" North and 3°, 18' and 29" East.
— You must be an engineer? says the balloonist.
— I am, replied the woman, how did you guess?
— Well, said the balloonist, everything you told me sounds technically perfectly correct, but I have no idea what I can do with your information and in fact I still don't know where I am. To put it bluntly, you've been of no help to me at all. Worse, you have delayed my trip again. The woman answers him:
— You must be a leader.
— Yes, the man answers proudly, but how did you guess?
— Well, said the woman, you don't know where you are or where you are going. You have reached your present position by heating and stirring an enormous amount of air. You made a promise without any idea how you could keep it and now you rely on the people below you to solve your problem. Your situation before and after we met has not changed, but as if by chance, I am now the one you blame for it!
A woman and a man have a violent collision. The cars are involved in a major accident. When they come to their senses, they get out of their respective vehicles. The woman says:
— You are a man and I am a woman. Look at our cars. Nothing is left and we are not hurt. This is a sign that God wanted us to meet and become friends.
Flattered, the man replies:
— I agree with you, it must be a sign.
— Look, another sign. My car is wrecked, but the wine bottle inside is still intact. God must have wanted us to drink it to celebrate our good fortune to still be alive.
She's handing the bottle to the man. The man opens it, drinks half of it and hands it to the woman. She takes it, puts the cork back on and puts it back next to her.
The man asks:
— Aren't you having any?
— No, I think I'll wait for the police.
The cell phone, it's discreet.
A guy stops at a highway rest area, going to the corners.
He takes the first available booth, settles in, then hears it:
— Hey, how's it going?
Not much of a fraternizer in the restroom of a rest area, he answers anyway, a little embarrassed:
— Uh… I'm OK…
And the other one who's chasing:
— And what are you doing?
The guy starts to think it's a little weird, but he says:
— Well, I'm doing what you do…
And then he hears the guy say, all pissed off:
— Look, I'll call you back later, there's a dickhead next door who answers all my questions!

— Can I play with you?

— Nothing, I didn't dare tell them that my mum and dad are so poor that they had to make me themselves.
It used to be better
Today I told my grandson about the big changes since I, his grandfather, was a child:
— Look, when I was a kid like you, my mum used to send me to the corner shop with 10 francs to buy groceries, which today is 1.5 euros. I would come home with a stick of butter, a litre of milk, a bag of potatoes, a piece of cheese, a packet of sugar, a baguette and a dozen eggs.
And my grandson answered me:
— Grandpa, in your generation, there were no security video cameras.

— They say that travel is much quicker if you talk to someone.
The little girl looks at him and says:
— Okay, what do you want to talk about?
The man boasts:
— How about nuclear physics?
The little girl answers him:
— All right, but first, listen to me carefully. A deer, a cow and a horse are all eating grass. Yet the deer makes small droppings, the cow makes flat dung and the horse makes big balls. How do you explain that?
The stunned engineer thinks for a moment and then has to confess:
— Well, I don't know how to explain it.
Then, cleverly, the little girl said to him:
— How can I explain nuclear physics to you if you can't even handle a little shit problem?

— No, he would pull the plug out. Do you want a room with or without windows?

— What's wrong, honey? Haven't you ever seen a naked man before?
The driver answers him:
— Let me tell you something, sir. I wasn't looking at you the way you think, it wouldn't be appropriate.
The drunk man is giggling:
— If you're not looking at my sex or my ass, dear friend, then what are you doing?
Silent again for a moment, she finally tells him:
— Well, sir, I look and I look and I wonder: Where is this man hiding his money to pay for this fare?

He goes so fast that he misses a sharp turn and falls into a pond. A few minutes later, the farmer comes up to him and says with a smile:
— So, do you give your animals a drink?
Sense of repartee
A teacher is having lunch in the canteen when a student comes to sit across from him. The teacher says to him with a sly smile to tease him:
— Birds and pigs don't eat lunch together!
— Oh, please excuse me, then I'll fly away, replied the student.
Shameful to have been fooled so stupidly, the teacher decides to stump him on next week's test, but the student answers all the questions perfectly. So the teacher asks him a little problem:
— You're on the street and you find two bags, one with banknotes and one with intelligence, which one do you choose?
— The bag full of bills, answers the student.
— If I were you, I would have chosen the intelligent one!
— People always take what they don't have, answered the student.
The professor swallowed his rage, but he took the student's test sheet and wrote “DUMBLY” in the margin. The student takes his copy, goes to sit down and after a few minutes comes back.
— Sir, he tells him, you signed, but you forgot to give me a score!
The Mother Superior of a convent is 98 years old. She is bedridden and dying. The nuns are all gathered around her to pray and to surround her with attention in her last moments. They bring her some warm milk, but the Mother Superior refuses to even taste it.
One of the nuns brings the glass of milk back to the kitchen and suddenly remembers that last Christmas, a pious donor of their convent, knowing of Mother Superior's Irish origin, offered a beautiful bottle of whisky to the community.
The nun finds the bottle, opens it and pours more than a generous shake into the warming milk and then returns to the dying woman. She puts the rim of the glass on her lips and tries to moisten them.
The Mother Superior drinks a few drops, then a swig, then another, then another, and finally whistles the entire contents of the glass to the last drop.
— Dearest Mother, the afflicted nuns ask their Superior, would you be so kind to give one last piece of advice before you leave us?
The Superior rises up on her bed as if resurrected, her face is illuminated by a joy that seems to be all heavenly, and she answers them:
— Never sell that cow!
A gift from God.
The pastor's wife was expecting a baby. In front of his congregation, the pastor asked them for a raise. After much discussion, they adopted the rule that every time the pastor's family grew, they would increase his pay.
After the birth of the sixth child, the pastor's family began to cost the community a lot of money. The congregation decided to hold another meeting to discuss the need for a further increase in salary. After lively discussion, they asked the question: How many more children could the pastor have and how much would it end up costing?
After listening to them, the pastor rose from his chair and said solemnly in a serious tone of voice:
— Children are a gift from God, and my wife and I will conceive as many as he will give us.
A heavy silence fell on the congregation. At the back of the temple, on the last bench, an old lady managed to get up and said in her frail voice:
— Rain is also a gift from God. But when we get too much rain, we wear raincoats!
Forever hold your peace
Last Saturday, I was at the town hall for a friend's wedding. When the mayor said:
— If anyone objects to this marriage, let them come forward now or forever hold their peace.
From the back of the hall, a young pregnant woman got up and walked down the aisle with a two-year-old child in her arms.
The groom was dazed and sweating. The bride, stunned, fainted. All hearts were beating.
Arriving in front of the mayor, she said:
— When you are behind, you can't hear well.
The police is arresting an old lady.
— Is there a problem, Officer?
— Yes, ma'am. I'm afraid you're driving at an excessive speed. Can I see your driver's licence, please?
— I'd give it to you, but I don't have one.
— You don't have one?
— No. It was taken away four years ago for drunk driving.
— Oh, I see. Can I see the registration of the vehicle?
— I don't have one either.
— Why don't you have one either?
— I stole that car.
— You stole it?
— Yes, and I killed the owner.
— You did what?
— The body parts are in plastic bags in the suitcase in the trunk. If you want to see them.
The policeman backed up very slowly into his car looking at the woman and then called for backup. Some time later, other police vehicles surround the car and a policeman with a gun in his hand slowly approaches and tells her:
— Ma'am, please step out of the vehicle slowly with your hands up!
The old lady did so. She speaks to the officer who holds her in respect:
— Is there a problem, Officer?
— My colleague tells me you stole this car and murdered its owner.
— Murdered the owner? Are you serious?
— Yes, could you please open the suitcase in the trunk of your car?
The lady obeys and opens the suitcase, but there's nothing inside. The policeman continues:
— Is this your car, madam?
— Yes, here is the registration and the insurance certificate under my name.
The officer who arrested her is quite surprised. The officer looks at him and then turns back to the old lady:
— My colleague also told me that you don't have a driver's licence.
The old lady opens her purse, takes out her licence and shows it to the officer. The officer looks at the licence and says:
— Thank you, ma'am. I'm really confused. My colleague told me that you did not have a licence, that you stole this car and that you murdered the owner.
— I bet that liar also told you that I was going too fast!?
Say… Do you like to feel a body against you? That makes you sweat?
Feel its breath on your face or your neck? Try new positions?
Enter from behind? Or from the front? Up, down, in and out?
Go in cold and come out warm?
Is that so? Do you like it?
Then take public transportation!!!
