Jokes / Trini Sales Man
« on: February 25, 2010, 01:32:43 AM »
A young fella from Trinidad moves to Florida and goes to a big everything-under-one-roof department store looking for a job.

The Manager says, 'Do you have any sales experience?'

The Trini says 'Yeah. I was a salesman back in Trinidad.'
Well, the boss liked the young fella and decided to give him a job. 'You start tomorrow. I'll come down after we close and see how you did.'

His first day on the job was rough, but he got through it. After the store was locked up, the boss came down. 'How many customers bought something from you today?'

The Trini says, 'One.'

The boss says, 'Just one? Our sales people average 20 to 30 customers a day. How much was the sale for?'

The Trini says, '$101,237.65.'

The boss says, '$101,237.65? What the heck did you sell?'

The Trini says, 'First, I sold him a small fish hook. Then I sold him a medium fishhook. Then I sold him a larger fishhook. Then I sold him a new fishing rod. Then I asked him where he was going fishing, and he said down the coast, so I told him he was going to need a boat, so we went down to the boat department, and I sold him a twin engine Chris Craft. Then he said he didn't think his Honda Civic would pull it, so I took him down to the automotive department and sold him that 4x4 Expedition.'

The boss said 'A guy came in here to buy a fish hook and you sold him a BOAT and a TRUCK?'

The Trini said 'No dred, the guy came in here to buy Tampons for his wife, and I said, Boss, your weekend done spoil, you should go fishing.

Jokes / Bear Removers
« on: February 04, 2010, 02:00:39 AM »
A man wakes up one morning in Alaska to find a bear on his roof. So he looks in the yellow pages and sure enough, there's an ad for "Bear Removers."
He calls the number and the bear remover says he'll be over in 30 minutes. The bear remover arrives and gets out of his van. He's got a ladder, a baseball bat, a shotgun and a mean old pit bull.
"What are you going to do," the homeowner asks?
"I'm going to put this ladder up against the roof, then I'm going to go up there and knock the bear off the roof with this baseball bat.
When the bear falls off, the pit bull is trained to grab his testicles and not let go. The bear will then be subdued enough for me to put him in the cage in the back of the van.."
He hands the shotgun to the homeowner. "What's the shotgun for?" asks the homeowner.
"If the bear knocks me off the roof, shoot the dog."

Jokes / Don't step on the Ducks!!
« on: April 15, 2008, 12:14:34 AM »

          Three women died together in an accident and went to heaven.
          When they get there, St Peter says, 'We only have one rule here in heaven: don't step on the ducks!'
          So they enter heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all over the place. It is almost impossible not to step on a duck, and although they try their best to avoid them, the first woman accidentally steps on one.
          Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw.

          St. Peter chains them together and says, 'Your punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this ugly man!'
          The next day, the second woman steps accidentally on a duck and along comes St. Peter, who doesn't miss a thing. With him is another extremely ugly man. He chains them together with the same admonishment as for the first woman.

          The third woman has observed all this and, not wanting to be chained for all eternity to an ugly man, is very, VERY careful where she steps.
          She manages to go months without stepping on any ducks, but one day St. Peter comes up to her with the most handsome man she has ever laid eyes on . very tall, long eyelashes, muscular, and thin.

          St. Peter chains them together without saying a word.
          The happy woman says, 'I wonder what I did to deserve being chained to you for all of eternity?'
          The guy says, 'I don't know about you, but I stepped on a duck!'
