Thomas the Tank Engine Derailed

A mother was working in the kitchen, listening to her son playing with his new electric train set in the living room.

She heard the train stop and her son saying, "All of you bastards who want off, get off now, 'cos we're in a hurry! And all of you bastards who are getting on, get on now, 'cos we're going down the tracks'.

The horrified mother went in and told her son, "We don't use that kind of language in this house. Now I want you to go to your room and stay there for TWO HOURS! When you come out, you may play with your train, but I want you to use nice language."

Two hours later, the son came out of the bedroom and resumed playing with his train. Soon the train stopped and the mother heard her son say, "All passengers who are disembarking the train, please remember to take all of your belongings with you. We thank you for travelling with us today and hope your trip was a pleasant one."

She hears the boy continue, "For those of you just boarding, we ask you to stow all of your hand luggage under your seat. Remember, there is no smoking on the train. We hope you will have a pleasant and relaxing journey with us today."

As the mother began to smile, the child added, "For those of you who are pissed off about the TWO HOUR delay, please see the fat controller in the kitchen."

The note

The wife left a note on the fridge:

It's not working, I can’t take it anymore! Gone to stay at my mother's 

I opened the fridge, the light came on and the beer was cold. No idea what she was on about!

Trouble and Strife

Listening to the radio this morning, the host invited callers to reveal their nicknames for their wives. The pick of the bunch was from a brave chap who called his wife "Harvey Norman"...

Absolutely no interest for 36 months.
