“Fight Against Stupidity And Bureaucracy”

.

Gullible or not now is your chance to look at this week’s selection of word plays, better known as puns.

As usual they come with choice….

Enjoy or endure!!

.

.

I have four problems in life:

counting,

remembering

and counting.

.

.

I was driving along the other day,

when a bloke stopped me and said,

“Your back mud flaps have fallen off.”

I said, “Can’t do much about it now,

I’ll just carry on rear guard less.”

.

.

Stable relationships

are for horses

.

.

My friend told me that after years of doubt,

he is now convinced my wife is having an affair.

“We’ve gone and moved 250 miles away,” he told me.

“And we’ve still got the same window cleaner.”

.

.

It’s times like these, when I’m sat

in bed with my computer on my knee,

that I really wish I’d bought a laptop.

.

.

I think I may have a shower.

Just checked, yes I do, it’s upstairs.

.

.

I just found \$20 hanging from my ceiling.

It was a suicide note.

.

.

Exaggerations went up

by a million percent last year.

.

.

If Einstein hadn’t come up with

the Theory of Relativity,

someone else would have.

It was only a matter of time.

.

.

My cat is absolutely terrified

of thunder and lightening.

The pussy.

.

.

What part of my body is as long as your thigh,

contains over 120 muscles,

and is an anagram of “pensi”?

No, you’re completely wrong.

The correct answer is my spine.

.

.

I believe it to be the other way around.

I was walking through the house

the other day with my camera

when I spotted the cat lying on a sofa.

“Hi there.” I said. “Whatya doin?”

“Just chilling out here on the sofa,’” she said.

.

“I have a joke for you,” I said.

So I told her a joke.

It must have been a good one,
