She tossed aside her cotton sheet and wool blanket and stepped out onto a dirt floor covered with willow bark that had been pulverized with rocks. “What’s this?” she asked.“Pulverized willow bark,” replied her fairy godmother.“What happened to the carpet?” she asked.“The carpet was nylon, which is made from butadiene and hydrogen cyanide, both made from petroleum,” came the response.Greta smiled, acknowledging that adjustments are necessary to save the planet, and moved to the sink to brush her teeth where instead of a toothbrush, she found a willow, mangled on one end to expose wood fibre bristles.“Your old toothbrush?” noted her godmother, “Also nylon.”“Where’s the water?” asked Greta.“Down the road in the canal,” replied her godmother, ‘Just make sure you avoid water with cholera in it”“Why’s there no running water?” Greta asked, becoming a little peevish.“Well,” said her godmother, who happened to teach engineering at MIT, “Where do we begin?” There followed a long monologue about how sink valves need elastomer seats and how copper pipes contain copper, which has to be mined and how it’s impossible to make all-electric earth-moving equipment with no gear lubrication or tires and how ore has to be smelted to a make metal, and that’s tough to do with only electricity as a source of heat, and even if you use only electricity, the wires need insulation, which is petroleum-based, and though most of Sweden’s energy is produced in an environmentally friendly way because of hydro and nuclear, if you do a mass and energy balance around the whole system, you still need lots of petroleum products like lubricants and nylon and rubber for tires and asphalt for filling potholes and wax and iPhone plastic and elastic to hold your underwear up while operating a copper smelting furnace and . . .“What’s for breakfast?” interjected Greta, whose head was hurting.“Fresh, range-fed chicken eggs,” replied her godmother. “Raw.”“How so, raw?” inquired Greta.“Well, . . .” And once again, Greta was told about the need for petroleum products like transformer oil and scores of petroleum products essential for producing metals for frying pans and in the end was educated about how you can’t have a petroleum-free world and then cook eggs. Unless you rip your front fence up and start a fire and carefully cook your egg in an orange peel like you do in Boy Scouts. Not that you can find oranges in Sweden anymore.“But I want poached eggs like my Aunt Tilda makes,” lamented Greta.“Tilda died this morning,” the godmother explained. “Bacterial pneumonia.”“What?!” interjected Greta. “No one dies of bacterial pneumonia! We have penicillin.”“Not anymore,” explained godmother “The production of penicillin requires chemical extraction using isobutyl acetate, which, if you know your organic chemistry, is petroleum-based. Lots of people are dying, which is problematic because there’s not any easy way of disposing of the bodies since backhoes need hydraulic oil and crematoriums can’t really burn many bodies using as fuel Swedish fences and furniture, which are rapidly disappearing – being used on the black market for roasting eggs and staying warm.”This represents only a fraction of Greta’s day, a day without microphones to exclaim into and a day without much food, and a day without carbon-fibre boats to sail in, but a day that will save the planet.Tune in tomorrow when Greta needs a root canal and learns how Novocain is synthesized.February 27, 2021 at 5:17 am #33480Teacher : Who is the President ofIraq ?Me : I don’t know MissTeacher : You need to focus more onyour studies.Me : Please Miss, can I ask aquestion ?Teacher : Yes.Me : Do U know Angela ?Teacher : No, why ?Me : You need to focus more on your husband…!February 28, 2021 at 5:16 am #33482Paddy phoned his boss’s mobile.“I’m on the train heading to the south coast now.”“What..?” his boss replied, sounding a bit annoyed.“It’s five o’clock in the bloody morning,what are you doing on a train?”“You tell me,” Paddy replied.“You’re the one who told me to be in Brighton early this morning…..<span class=”tojvnm2t a6sixzi8 abs2jz4q a8s20v7p t1p8iaqh k5wvi7nf q3lfd5jv pk4s997a bipmatt0 cebpdrjk qowsmv63 owwhemhu dp1hu0rb dhp61c6y iyyx5f41″> </span>March 1, 2021 at 4:31 am #33487Groups of Americans were traveling by tour bus through Switzerland. As they stopped at a cheese farm, a young guide led them through the process of cheese making, explaining that goat’s milk was used. She showed the group a lovely hillside where many goats were grazing.“These,” she explained, “are the older goats put out to pasture when they no longer produce.”She then asked, “What do you do in America with your old goats?”A spry old gentleman answered, “They send us on bus tours!”March 2, 2021 at 4:01 am #33489A group of Irish lads are out in Spain on holidays..On one of their nights out they encountered a young man from Dublin.He was so drunk that he could hardly stand.The lads asked him his name and he said; “Phillip Maguire.”The lads told him; ” It’s not safe being here on your own. We are going to look after you! “So for the rest of the holiday the lads looked after Phillip.He was filled with booze day in and day out.Philip tried to explain something to them but the lads just said; ” Dont you worry pal, you are in good hands! We are going to look after and make sure that you have a great holiday.”When the holiday was over the lads took Phillip back with them.“Which part of Dublin are you from?” They asked him.“Ballyfermot! “He muttered.So they headed to Ballyfermot and went to the address that Phillip had given them.When they arrived one of the lads went to check it it was the correct address.He went up to the door and rang the bell.A woman answered; ” Hello, can I help you?”“Yes! ” The lads answered; “I was wondering is this the home of Philip Maguire?”” Why yes it is. But he’s not here. He is over in Spain on his honeymoon…!”March 3, 2021 at 2:16 am #33491

This being Ireland and me being Irish surely I should get the job?”The manager responded, “We have made our decision not on the correct answers, but on the question you got wrong.”“And just how would one incorrect answer be better than another?”That’s simple.

So I hid her in my attic.”The priest replied, “That was a wonderful thing you did, and you haveno need to confess that.”“There is more to tell, Father. She started to repay me with sexualfavors. This happened several times a week, and sometimes twice onSundays.”The priest said, “That was a long time ago and by doing what you did,you placed the two of you in great danger, but two people under thosecircumstances can easily succumb to the weakness of the flesh. However, if you are truly sorry for your actions, you are indeed forgiven.”“Thank you, Father. That is a great load off my mind. I do have onemore question.”“And what is that?” asked the priest.“Should I tell her the war is over?”March 13, 2021 at 5:26 am #33511
Meghan Markle was visiting a primary school and she visited one of the classes.They were in the middle of a discussion related to words and their meanings.
The teacher asked Meghan if she would like to lead the discussion on the word “tragedy”.
So the the attention seeking soap star asked the class for an example of a “tragedy”.
One little boy stood up and offered: “If my best friend, who lives on a farm, is playing in the field and a tractor runs over him and kills
him, that would be a ‘tragedy'”.
” No,” said Meghan, “that would be an accident.”
A little girl raised her hand: “If a school bus carrying fifty children drove over a cliff, killing everyone inside, that would be a tragedy.”
“I’m afraid not,” explained Meghan “That’s what we would call a great loss.”
The room went silent. No other children volunteered.Meghan searched the room.
“Isn’t there someone here who can give me an example of tragedy?”
Finally, at the back of the room, a small boy raised his hand…In a quiet
voice he said: “If the aeroplane carrying you and your husband was
struck by a “friendly fire” missile and blown to smithereens, that
would be a tragedy.
“Fantastic!” exclaimed Meghan. “That’s
right. And can you tell me why that would be a tragedy?”
“Well,” says the boy “It has to be a tragedy, because it certainly wouldn’t be a great loss and it probably wouldn’t be a fucin accident eitherMarch 14, 2021 at 5:12 am #33515March 15, 2021 at 4:33 am #33516
