Saturday Silliness

Let’s start the day with a smile...



PARKING THE ROLLS

Before going to Europe on business, a man drove his Rolls Royce to a downtown NY City bank and went in to ask for an immediate loan of $5,000. The loan officer, taken aback, requested collateral.

"Well, then, here are the keys to my Rolls Royce," the man said. The loan officer promptly had the car driven into the bank's underground parking for safe keeping, and gave him $5,000.

Two weeks later, the man walked through the bank's doors, and asked to settle up his loan and get his car back. "That will be $5,000 in principal, and $15.40 in interest," the loan officer said. The man wrote out a check and started to walk away.

"Wait sir," the loan officer said, "while you were gone I learned that you are a millionaire. Why in the world would you need to borrow $5,000?"

The man smiled. "Where else could I park my Rolls Royce in Manhattan for two weeks and pay only $15.40?"


YOU KNOW YOU'VE BOOKED A CHEAP FLIGHT WHEN...

- As you board the plane, you notice the co-pilot is frowning and wearing an "I'm with Stupid" T-Shirt.

- The Captain announces over the intercom the flight is delayed while he looks for his keys.

- The Airline mechanics, wearing propeller beanies, seem to be pointing and laughing an awful lot, and drinking something from inside brown paper bags.

- The Ground Crew are seen using pennies to check tire wear.

- A man with an oily rag hanging from the back pocket of his dirty coveralls, and sadly shaking his head, turns out to be the airline's C.E.O.

- A voice on P.A. system warns you to keep your heads and arms inside the aircraft at all times, while the plane is in motion.

- The air sickness bags have the Lord's Prayer printed on them.

- Jumper cables are dangling from the door to the cockpit.

- A man in clerical garb walks through the plane, sprinkles all the passengers with water, mumbling something in Latin & exits.

- A telephone with a really long cord connects the plane to the control tower.
