The HMRC (Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs) has returned the Tax Return
to a man in Stansted after he apparently answered one of the questions

In response to the question: "Do you have anyone dependant on you ?" he
wrote : "2.1 million illegal immigrants, 1.1 million drug addicts, 4.4
million unemployable scroungers, 90,000 criminals in over 85 prisons
plus 650 idiots in Parliament and the whole of the European Commission".

The HMRC stated that the response he gave was ‘Unacceptable.

The man's response back to HMRC was: *"Who did I miss out ?"


Paddy was in  New York.

He was patiently waiting and watching the traffic cop on a busy street
The cop stopped the flow of traffic and shouted, 'Okay, pedestrians.'  
Then he'd allow the traffic to pass.

He'd done this several times, and Paddy still stood on the sidewalk..

After the cop had shouted, 'Pedestrians!' for the tenth time, Paddy went
over to him and said, 'Is it not about time ye let the Catholics across?'

Cats do not change light bulbs.  People change light bulbs.  so the real

"How long will it be before I can expect some lightsome dinner and a



We live in a small town where we have a volunteer Ambulance Company.
We are blessed with many dedicated and fully qualified attendants, who staff
our ambulances and give freely of themselves. I was chatting with one of the
EMS respondents one day and she could hardly stifle a chuckle, so I asked
her what was so funny and she told me this story...

It seems that she had gone to an automobile accident and was checking
a patient who was lying on the road for injuries. As she knelt beside
him and probed him, she asked, "Does this hurt or does that hurt?"
After each probe, he replied, "No." When she had nearly completed
her examination, she shifted to a better spot from which to finish
the examination when after one of her probing questions, he exclaimed
very loudly, "That hurts!"

When she asked where, he looked up at her with a look of real pain on
his face and said, "You're kneeling on my fingers!"

There I was sitting at the bar staring at my drink when a large,

trouble-making biker steps up next to me,

grabs my drink and gulps it down in one swig.

"Well, whatcha' gonna do about it?" he says, menacingly, as I burst into

"Come on, man," the biker says, "I didn't think you'd CRY. I can`t stand
to see

a man crying."

"This is the worst day of my life," I say. "I'm a complete failure.

I was late to a meeting and my boss fired me.

When I went to the parking lot, I found my car had been stolen
and I don't have any insurance.

I left my wallet in the cab I took home.

I found my wife with another man and then my dog bit me."

"So I came to this bar to work up the courage to put an end to it
all, I buy a drink,

I drop a capsule in and sit here watching the poison dissolve;
then you show up and drink the whole thing!

But enough about me, how's your day going?"


I was driving with my three young children one warm
summer evening when a woman in the convertible ahead
of us stood up and waved. She was stark naked! As I
was reeling from the shock, I heard my 5-year-old shout
from the back seat, 'Mom, that lady isn't wearing a
seat belt!'

On the first day of school, a first-grader handed his
teacher a note from his mother. The note read, 'The
opinions expressed by this child are not necessarily
those of his parents.'

A woman was trying hard to get the ketchup out of the
jar. During her struggle the phone rang so she asked
her 4-year-old daughter to answer the phone. 'Mommy
can't come to the phone to talk to you right now. She's
hitting the bottle.'

A little boy got lost at the YMCA and found himself in
the women's locker room. When he was spotted, the room
burst into shrieks, with ladies grabbing towels and
running for cover. The little boy watched in amazement
and then asked, 'What's the matter, haven't you ever
seen a little boy before?'

5) POLICE # 1
While taking a routine vandalism re port at an elementary
school, I was interrupted by a little girl about 6 years
old. Looking up and down at my uniform, she asked, 'Are
you a cop? Yes,' I answered and continued writing the
report. My mother said if I ever needed help I should
ask the police. Is that right?' 'Yes, that's right,' I told
her. 'Well, then,' she said as she extended her foot toward
me, 'would you please tie my shoe?'

6) POLICE # 2
It was the end of the day when I parked my police van in
front of the station. As I gathered my equipment, my K-9
partner, Jake, was barking, and I saw a little boy staring

in at me. 'Is that a dog you got back there?' he asked. 'It
sure is,' I replied. Puzzled, the boy looked at me and then
towards the back of the van. Finally he said, 'What'd he do?'

While working for an organisation that delivers lunches to
elderly shut-ins, I used to take my 4-year-old daughter on
my afternoon rounds. She was unfailingly intrigued by the
various appliances of old age, particularly the canes, walkers
and wheelchairs. One day I found her staring at a pair of
false teeth soaking in a glass. As I braced myself for the
inevitable barrage of questions, she merely turned and
whispered, 'The tooth fairy will never believe this!'

A little girl was watching her parents dress for a
party. When she saw her dad donning his tuxedo, she
warned, 'Daddy, you shouldn't wear that suit.' 'And
why not, darling?' 'You know that it always gives you
a headache the next morning.'

While walking along the sidewalk in front of his church,
our minister heard the intoning of a prayer that nearly
made his collar wilt. Apparently, his 5-year-old son and
his playmates had found a dead robin. Feeling that proper
burial should be performed, they had secured a small box
and cotton batting, then dug a hole and made ready for
the disposal of the deceased. The minister's son was
chosen to say the appropriate prayers and with sonorous

dignity intoned his version of what he thought his father
always said: 'Glory be unto the Father, and unto the Son,
and into the hole he goes.'
(I want this line used at my funeral!)

A little girl had just finished her first week of school.
'I'm just wasting my time,' she said to her mother. 'I
can't read, I can't write, and they won't let me talk!'

A little boy opened the big family Bible. He was fascinated
as he fingered through the old pages. Suddenly, something
fell out of the Bible. He picked up the object and looked
at it. What he saw was an old leaf that had been pressed
in between the pages. 'Mama, look what I found,' the boy
called out. 'What have you got there, dear?' With
astonishment in the young boy's voice, he answered,
'I think it's Adam's underwear!'
