AUTHOR3AE25Thanks to a certain Grumpy using up all the internet allowance, I have not been able to post on my blog for almost two weeks. Thank goodness it is May 1st and I have my new data allowance. I’d better get scheduling posts before he uses it all up again.

It’s Friday which means it’s time for a giggle. It’s also Labour Day so today’s jokes are appropriately themed. Hope you enjoy the collection:

A mathematician, a statistician and an accountant apply for the same job.

The interviewer calls in the mathematician and asks, “What does two plus two equal?”

The mathematician replies, “Four.”

Then the interviewer calls in the statistician and asks the same question, “What does two plus two equal?”

The statistician says, “On average, four – give or take ten percent, but on average four.”

Then the interviewer calls in the accountant and poses the same question, “What does two plus two equal?”

The accountant gets up, locks the door, closes the shades, sits down next to the interviewer and says, “What do you want it to equal?”


Five surgeons are discussing who makes the best patients to operate on. The first surgeon says, “I like to see accountants on my operating table, because when you open them up, everything inside is numbered.”

The second responds, “Yeah, but you should try electricians! Everything inside them is color coded.”

The third surgeon says, “No, I really think librarians are the best; everything inside them is in alphabetical order.”

The fourth surgeon chimes in: “You know, I like construction workers…those guys always understand when you have a few parts left over at the end, and when the job takes longer than you said it would.”

But the fifth surgeon shut them all up when he observed: “You’re all wrong. Politicians are the easiest to operate on. There’s no guts, no heart, and no spine, and the head and butt are interchangeable.”
