|Hello Chockerstone dearies.
Hasn't it been an eventful couple of weeks lately? What with the changing face of the liberal party, the numerous polls on Chockerstone, and today a couple of posts already on Friday Funnies even if it is only Tuesday!
Derek my M10 love tells me it must be the silly season, as some say, but more the worry is that some are? I bet Mr Rudd being the prominent leader of our fair country isn't ducking for cover in Copenhagen, but if he needs a bunker to hole up in, then I think he could do well to join the book authors in the Nati Cafe.
If things are not as we want them, then we can only wish.
A curly haired boulderer and a tradster, both Nati locals, were climbing at Arapiles when tradster pulled out a cigar. Finding he had no matches, he asked curly haired boulderer for a light.
'Yeah, sure, I think I have a lighter,' he replied, and then reaching into his climbing pack, he pulled out a Bic lighter 10 inches long.
'Jiminy Cricket!' exclaimed tradster, taking the huge Bic Lighter in his hands. 'Where did you get that monster??'
'Well,' replied curly haired boulderer, 'I got it from my Genie.'
'You have a Genie?' tradster asked.
'Yeah, sure. It's right here in my climbing pack,' says curly haired boulderer.
'Could I see him?'
Curly haired boulderer opens his climbing pack & sure enough, out pops the Genie.
Addressing the genie, tradster says, 'Hey there I'm a good friend of your master. Will you grant me one wish?'
'Yes, I will,' says the Genie.
So tradster asks the Genie for a million bucks.
The Genie disappears back into the climbing pack leaving tradster sitting there waiting for his million bucks.
Shortly, the sky darkens and is filled with the sound of a million ducks....flying directly overhead.
Over the roar of the million ducks tradster yells at curly haired boulderer, 'What the heck, I asked for a million bucks, not a million ducks!'
Curly haired boulderer answers, 'Yeah, I forgot to tell you that the Genie is hard of hearing. Do you really think I asked for a 10-inch Bic?"
