    Only if correctly arranged, otherwise it's misspelt.

    Dead Penguins - I never knew this!

    Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica ?
    Where do they go?
    Wonder no more ! ! !

    It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life. The penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintain a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its life.
    If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into, and buried.

    The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:
    "Freeze a jolly good fellow."
    "Freeze a jolly good fellow."

    One day, a shy gentleman was preparing to board a plane when he heard that the Pope was on the same flight. "This is exciting," thought the gentleman. "I've always been a big fan of the Pope. Perhaps I'll be able to see him in person."
    Suddenly, the man realized his seat was right next to the Pope himself. Still, the gentleman was too shy to speak to the Pope. Shortly after take-off, the Pope took a crossword puzzle out off his bag and began working on it. This is fantastic, thought the gentleman. I'm really good at crosswords. Perhaps if the Pope gets stuck, he'll ask me for assistance.
    Almost immediately, the Pope turned to the man and said, "Excuse me, but do you know a four letter word referring to a woman that ends in 'unt'?
    The man was in shock. He could only think of one word that fit the description and he was not about to say it to the Pope. The gentleman thought for a while longer, then it hit him. Turning to the pope, the gentleman said, "I think you're looking for the word 'aunt'."
    "Of course," said the Pope. "Do you have an eraser?"

    A couple from a circus go to an adoption agency, but social workers are doubtful about their accommodation.
    So they produce photos of their 15 metre long caravan, the back half of which is a beautifully equipped nursery.
    The social workers then are doubtful about the education that
    would be provided.
    "We've employed an Oxford don who'll teach the child all the subjects along with Mandarin and ICT skills".
    There are then doubts expressed about the child’s healthy upbringing.
    "Our full time nanny is an expert in paediatric welfare and diet", they reply.
    So the social workers are finally satisfied, and ask what age of child they were looking for.
    "It doesn't really matter", they say, "so long as they fit in the cannon".

    So one of my female American friends posted this question - " Do you prefer your breakfast sausage in a casing, or out? " was I wrong in replying " Is this question to do with circumcision?"

    Feeling the need to rant.

    I experienced the WORST customer service this week in one of our local shops..
    I don't want to mention their name because I'm not sure how I'm going to proceed, but basically earlier on in the week I bought something from this shop, paid cash, took it home and then discovered that it didn't work. The next day I took it back and asked if I could get a refund.
    The girl in the store told me “NO” even though I still had the receipt.
    I asked if I could get a replacement instead then. Again this person told me "NO."
    I asked to speak to a manager as I'm really annoyed.
    I explained that I had just bought the item, had got it home and it didn't work.
    The manager just smiled and told me to my face that I was "OUT OF LUCK." No refund. No FREE replacement.
    I'll tell you what...
    I am NEVER buying another Lottery Ticket from there again!

    The conductor told the drums, xylophones, cymbals, bells and gongs to play their sections twice. There will be repercussions.

    A new priest, born and raised in Texas, comes to serve in a city parish and is nervous about hearing confessions, so he asks the older priest to sit in on his sessions.

    The new priest hears a couple of confessions, then the old priest asks him to step out of the confessional for a few suggestions. The old priest suggests, “Cross your arms over your chest, and rub your chin with one hand and try saying things like ‘yes, I see,’ and ‘yes, go on,’ and ‘I understand.’

    The new priest crosses his arms, rubs his chin with one hand and repeats all the suggested remarks to the old priest.

    The old priest says, “Now, don’t you think that’s a little better than slapping your knee and saying, “No shit, what happened next?”

    Here lies the body of sign writer Joe
    He fell through the hole in a capital O
    It could have been worse
    It could have been better
    But he went as he came through a hole in a letter.

    I suppose someone has to...! First time I saw Broomhouse was on my first tram trip to the airport, I was a little shocked that they didn't build a more scenic route. One that, perhaps, had blocks with functioning doors rather than boarded up communal entrances. ;)

    But hey, I'm in Prestonpans so my views don't count! :D We probably nicked those doors...

    There aren't very many people called Lance these days. But in medieval times people were named Lance a lot.
