Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Stuttering and stammering

So the interviewer is about to turn down the applicant for the job of television news broadcaster, even though he is otherwise very well qualified, because the applicant keeps winking and stammering. "But that is no problem!" says the applicant quickly -- quickly as he can manage. "If I take a couple of aspirin, I stop winking and stammering for an hour."

"Show me," says the interviewer.

So the man reaches into his pocket: but before he finally finds the aspirin, he is first embarrassingly pulling out packages upon packages of condoms of every conceivable variety (and some that maybe should not have been): ribbed, flavoured, coloured, textured ... and then he finds the aspirin, takes it, and almost immediately stops winking and starts talking perfectly.

The interviewer shakes his head. "That is amazing. But I don't think we could employ someone who would be womanising all over the country."

The applicant quickly objects: "I will have you know I am a happily married man, sir, not a womaniser!"

"Well, how do you explain all the condoms, then?"

"Have you ever gone into a pharmacy, stammering and winking, and asked for a packet of aspirin?"
