View Full Version : Happy Easter !!!!!

24th Mar 2005, 15:43
Just thought I would take the opportunity to wish all on Jet Blast a very happy Easter break (those who are not working that is !).

It will be my first Bank Holiday off work for 5 years so I know what it is like and my sympathies go to those who will be at work.

I intend to 'celebrate' by going down to Kent for a few days (never stayed there before) and visiting France for a day.

Anybody else planning to go away?

Yes, I'll be in France tomorrow.

Keeping well off the roads and out of the jams at Bank Holidays but best of luck Astro, hope you have a good one.

As nobody much is working Friday should it be the Thursday joke this week?

George W. Bush meets the Queen

A 300-foot red carpet was stretched out to Air Force One and President Bush strode to a warm but dignified handshake from Queen Elizabeth II.

They rode in a silver 1934 Bentley to the edge of central London where they boarded an open 17th century coach hitched to six magnificent white horses.

As they rode toward Buckingham Palace, each looking to their side and waving to the thousands of cheering Britons lining the streets, all was going well. This was indeed a glorious display of pageantry and dignity.

Suddenly the scene was shattered when the right rear horse let rip the most horrendous, earth-shattering, eye-smarting blast of flatulence and the coach immediately filled with noxious fumes.

Uncomfortable, but maintaining control, the two dignitaries did their best to ignore the whole incident, but then the Queen decided that was a ridiculous manner with which to handle a most embarrassing situation.

She turned to Mr. Bush and explained, "Mr. President, please accept my regrets. I'm sure you understand that there are some things even a Queen cannot control".

George W. Bush, ever the Texas gentleman, replied, "Your Majesty, please don't give the matter another thought. You know, if you hadn't said something I would have assumed it was one of the horses."

Happy Easter one and all.

And if anybody has to travel, keep safe.
