God Loves You

A heavy gambler at the races had lost every bet. Then he noticed a Priest step onto the track and bless one of the horses before a race. Lo and behold the horse won.

Next race the Priest stepped onto the track and blessed one of the horses. The gambler dashed for a window and placed a bet on the horse. Even though it was a long shot, the horse won the race.

He collected his winnings and waited to see which horse the Priest would bless next. He bet big and it won. As the races continued the Priest kept blessing long shots which all won.

The gambler made a dash to the ATM, withdrew everything and waited for the Priest's blessing to tell him which horse to bet on. The Priest stepped onto the track and blessed an old nag that was the longest shot of the day. The Priest blessed the eyes, ears and hooves of the horse.

The gambler bet every penny he had. He watched dumbfounded as the horse came last. In a state of shock, he went to the Priest and said 'Father! What happened? All day you blessed horses and they won. Then in the last race, the horse you blessed came last. Now I've lost everything'.

The Priest nodded and said. 'Son that's the problem with not attending Church, You can't tell the difference between a blessing and last rites'.

A lady lost her purse in a bustling department store. She searched everywhere she had visited, but just couldn't find it.
Finally, a little boy approached her and asked, "Mrs, is this your purse?"
Jubilantly, she grabbed the purse and cried, "Yes! Yes, it is! Thank you so much!"
Then she looked inside and was suddenly confused.
"But how strange... when I lost it, I had only two £50 notes, but now I have ten £10 notes!"
The boy replied, "That's because the last time I returned a lady's purse, she didn't have any change for my reward!"

Sales Technique

A young guy from Nebraska 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 ?"
“Yeah. I was a salesman back in Omaha."
The boss liked the kid and gave him the job.
"You start tomorrow."
His first day on the job was rough, but he got through it.
"How many customers bought something from you today ?"
The kid says, "One".
“Just one? Our sales people average 20 to 30 customers a day. How much was the sale for?"
The kid says, "$101,237.65 ".
The boss says, "$101,237.65? What the heck did you sell?"
The kid says, "First, I sold him a small fish hook. 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 Boston Whaler. 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 kid said, "No, the guy came in here to buy Tampons for his wife, and I said, 'Dude, your weekend's shot, you should go fishing.'"

Public health authorities have advised people to avoid the sun between 10am and 4pm, or preferably not to buy it at all.

Due to the water shortage in Ireland, the management at the Dublin swimming baths have closed lanes 7 & 8.

I'm sure that some time in the 1960s or 1970s Bristol City Council turned off the fountains on College Green because there was a water shortage.

They, the council, did actually know that the fountains simply recirculated water that was already there, and didn't actually use any, but they decided that it was easier to turn the fountains off than try to explain this to people, over and over and over and over again.

Actually, in this weather a fountain does consume a great deal of water due to evaporation.

With high air temperatures and low humidity our garden pond currently needs topping up very frequently unless we turn the fountain off.

more likely they turned off the water because the locals were bathing and washing clothes in it

We (from the school next door) were, as usual, sailing paper boats in it. I never did get a paper floatplane to work, so I had to make do with flying real ones later in life.

The young Thai footballers trapped in a flooded cave have been told they will need to learn to dive.

Once Brazil are knocked out of the world cup, they are going to send Neymar to teach them.

At an exclusive country club party a young man was introduced to an attractive girl.

He was immediately smitten and began flattering her outrageously. The girl liked the young man, but she was taken a bit aback by his fast and ardent pitch and even more amazed when after 30 minutes he proposed marriage.

"Look," she said. "We only met a half hour ago. How can you be so sure? We know nothing about each other."

"You're wrong," the young man declared. "For the past 5 years I've been
working in the bank where your father has his account."
