YOU HAVE TO LOVE THE BRITS
An American tourist in London decides to skip his tour group and explore the city on his own. He wanders around, seeing the sights, and occasionally stopping at a quaint pub to soak up the local culture, chat with the lads, and have a pint of Guinness.
After a while, he finds himself in a very high class neighborhood…..big, stately residences…no pubs, no stores, no restaurants, and worst of all… NO PUBLIC RESTROOMS. He really, really has to go, after all those Guinness’s. He finds a narrow side street, with high walls surrounding the adjacent buildings and decides to use the wall to solve his problem.
As he is unzipping, he is tapped on the shoulder by a London Bobbie, who says, “I say, sir, you simply cannot do that here, you know.”
“I’m very sorry, officer,” replies the American, “but I really, really HAVE TO GO, and I just can’t find a public restroom.”
“Ah, yes,” said the Bobbie…”Just follow me”.
He leads him to a back delivery alley”, then along a wall to a gate, which he opens. “In there,” points the Bobbie. “Whiz away,…anywhere you want.”
The fellow enters and finds himself in the most beautiful garden he has ever seen. Manicured grass lawns, statuary, fountains, sculptured hedges, and huge beds of gorgeous flowers, all in perfect bloom. Since he has the cop’s blessing, he unburdens himself and is greatly relieved.
As he goes back through the gate, he says to the Bobbie “That was really decent of you ….is that “British Hospitality ?”
“No” replied the Bobbie, with a satisfied smile on his face, “That’s the French Embassy.”

Maxine on “Life” – “Life is like an oven. It burns my buns.”
A husband and wife were having dinner at a very fine restaurant when this absolutely stunning young woman comes over to their table, gives the husband a big open mouthed kiss, then says she’ll see him later and walks away.
The wife glares at her husband and says, “Who was that?”
“Oh,” replies the husband, “she’s my mistress.”
“Well, that’s the last straw,” says the wife. “I’ve had enough, I want a divorce!”
“I can understand that,” replies her husband, “but remember, if we get a divorce, it will mean no more shopping trips to Paris, no more wintering in Barbados, no more summers in Tuscany, no more Hummer and Cadillac SUV in the garage and no more yacht club. But the decision is yours.”
Just then, a mutual friend enters the restaurant with a gorgeous babe on his arm.
“Who’s that woman with Jim?” asks the wife.
“That’s his mistress,” says her husband.
“Ours is prettier,” she replied.
Maxine on “Housework” – “I do my housework in the nude. It gives me an incentive to clean the mirrors as quickly as possible.”
There is a mute who wants to buy a toothbrush. By imitating the action of brushing one’s teeth, he successfully expresses himself to the shopkeeper and the purchase is done.
Now if there is a blind man who wishes to buy a pair of sunglasses, how should he express himself? Think about it first before scrolling down for the answer…
He opens his mouth and says. “I would like to buy a pair of sunglasses.”
If you got this wrong…please go dig a hole and hide.
Maxine on “Lawn Care” – “The key to a nice-looking lawn is a good mower. I recommend one who is muscular and shirtless.”
WEEK’S MOST POPULAR JOKE
Mr. Smith is waiting for the results of his wife’s blood tests. The lab technician finally comes into the waiting room to speak with him.
The lab tech says, “I’m sorry, sir, but there has been a bit of a mix-up and we have a problem. When we sent the samples from your wife to the lab, the samples from another Mrs. Smith were sent as well and we are now uncertain which test results are your wife’s. Frankly, it’s either bad or terrible!”
“What do you mean?”
“Well, one Mrs. Smith has tested positive for Alzheimer’s and the other Mrs. Smith has tested positive for AIDS. We can’t tell which is your wife.”
“That’s terrible! Can we do the test over?”
“Normally, yes. But you have an HMO, and they won’t pay for these expensive tests more than once.”
“Well, what am I supposed to do now?”
“The HMO recommends that you drop your wife off in the middle of town. If she remembers the way home, don’t sleep with her.”
Maxine on “Body Piercing” – “I’d get my tongue pierced, but I still have a little bit of brain left in my head.”
