You call an elevator a "lift"

You call a Barbeque a "Braai"


The employees dance in front of the building to show how unhappy they are.

You can sing your national anthem in four languages, and you have no

Patience, Portion, Coronation.


"Now now" or "just now" can mean anything from a minute to a month.


You continue to wait after a traffic light has turned to green to make
way for taxis travelling in the opposite direction.


Travelling at 120 km/h you're the slowest vehicle on the highway/freeway.


You're genuinely and pleasantly surprised whenever you find your car
parked where you left it.


A bullet train is being introduced, but we can't fix potholes.


The last time you visited the coast you paid more in speeding fines and
toll fees than you did for the entire holiday.


You paint your car's registration on the roof.


You have to take your own linen with you if you are admitted to a
government hospital.


You have to prove that you don't need a loan to get one.


Prisoners go on strike.


You don't stop at a red traffic light, in case somebody hijacks your car.


You consider it a good month if you only get mugged once.


Ruwandan refugees start leaving the country because the crime rate is
too high.

You consider a high crime rate as normal.


You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends from SA.

VIVA !!!!!

A police officer
came upon a terrible wreck where the driver and passenger had been killed. As he looked upon the wreckage a little monkey came out of the brush and hopped around the crashed car. The officer looked down at the monkey and said "I wish you could talk."
The monkey looked up at the officer and shook his head up and down.
"You can understand what I'm saying?" asked the officer.
Again, the monkey shook his head up and down.
"Well, did you see this?"
"Yes," motioned the monkey.
"What happened?"
The monkey pretended to have a can in his hand and turned it up by his mouth.
"They were drinking?" asked the officer.
"Yes."
"What else?"
The monkey pinched his fingers together and held them to his mouth.
"They were smoking marijuana?"
"Yes."
"Now wait, you're saying your owners were drinking, and smoking marijuana before they wrecked."
"Yes."
"What were you doing during all this?"
"Driving" motioned the monkey.

Two golf jokes



Two golfers are talking.

The first golfer says to his buddy, "Hey, try this ball! It's impossible to lose. If you hit it too far away, it beeps, and if it goes underwater it bubbles." The second golfer says, "That's amazing! Where did you get it?" First golfer: "I found it."

=====

A young man and an old man are playing golf together. Their scores are even, and as they move onto the ninth green, they see a pine tree at least 300 ft tall. The old man says "When I was your age, I could hit the ball WAAAY over the tree!" Not to be outdone, the young man swings and hits the top of the tree; the ball bounces back and hits him on the head.

The old man proceeds to elaborate. "Of course, when I was your age, the tree was only four feet tall."

There's this fellow with a parrot. And this parrot swears like a sailor, I mean he's a pistol. He can swear for five minutes straight without repeating himself. Trouble is, the guy who owns him is a quiet, conservative type, and this bird's foul mouth is driving him crazy.
One day, it gets to be too much, so the guy grabs the bird by the throat, shakes him really hard, and yells, "QUIT IT!" But this just makes the bird mad and he swears more than ever.
Then the guy gets mad and says, "OK for you," and locks the bird in a kitchen cabinet. This really aggravates the bird and he claws and scratches, and when the guy finally lets him out, the bird cuts loose with a stream of invectives that would make a veteran sailor blush. At that point, the guy is so mad that he throws the bird into the freezer.
For the first few seconds there is a terrible din. The bird kicks and claws and thrashes. Then it suddenly gets VERY quiet.
At first the guy just waits, but then he starts to think that the bird may be hurt. After a couple of minutes of silence, he's so worried that he opens up the freezer door.
The bird calmly climbs onto the man's out-stretched arm and says, "Awfully sorry about the trouble I gave you. I'll do my best to improve my vocabulary from now on." The man is astounded. He can't understand the transformation that has come over the parrot.
Then the parrot says, "By the way, what did the chicken do?"

A helicopter was flying around above Seattle yesterday when an electrical malfunction disabled all of the aircraft's electronic navigation and communications equipment. Due to the clouds and haze, the pilot could not determine the helicopter's position and course to steer to the airport.

The pilot saw a tall building, flew toward it, circled, drew a handwritten sign, and held it in the helicopter's window. The pilot's sign said "WHERE AM I?" in large letters.

People in the tall building quickly responded to the aircraft, drew a large sign, and held it in a building window. Their sign said "YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER."

The pilot smiled, waved, looked at his map, determined the course to steer to SEATAC airport, and landed safely.

After they were on the ground, the co-pilot asked the pilot how the "YOU ARE IN A HELICOPTER" sign helped determine their position.

The pilot responded "I knew that had to be the MICROSOFT building because, similar to their help-lines, they gave me a technically correct but completely useless answer."

A man fears his wife may have a hearing disorder. So he goes to a doctor, and says, "Doc, what should I do?" The doctor says "Talk to her in a regular tone of voice from 40 feet away. If she doesn't hear you, go to 30 feet, then 20, etc." The man decides to try it out. He sits on the couch while his wife is making dinner, judging that it's about 40 feet away.

"Honey, what's for dinner?" No response.

He moves closer. "Honey, what's for dinner?" No response.

He goes into the kitchen. "Honey, what's for dinner?" No response.

Finally, he goes up 5 feet away from his wife. "Honey, what's for dinner?"

"FOR THE FOURTH TIME, BOB, IT'S CHICKEN!!!

You can sing your national anthem in four languages, and you have no
idea what it means in any of them.

I can sing the Canadian national anthem in French, and I know only dimly what the heck it's talking about.

Bill Gates dies in a car accident. He finds himself in purgatory, being sized up by St. Peter.

"Well, Bill, I'm really confused on this call; I'm not sure whether to send you to Heaven or to the hot place . After all, you enormously helped society by putting a computer in almost every home in America, yet you also created that ghastly Windows '95. I'm going to do something I've never done before in your case; I'm going to let you decide where you want to go."

Bill replied, "well, what's the difference between the two?"

St. Peter said, "I'm willing to let you visit both places briefly, if it will help your decision."

"Fine, but where should I go first?"

"I'll leave that up to you."

"Okay then," said Bill, "Let's try the hot place first."

So Bill went to the hot place. It was a beautiful, clean, sandy beach with clear waters and lots of bikini-clad women running around, playing in the water, laughing and frolicking about.The sun was shining; the temperature perfect. He was very pleased.

"This is great!" he told St. Peter. "If this is the hot place, I REALLY want to see heaven!"

"Fine," said St. Peter, and off they went.

Heaven was a place high in the clouds, with angels drifting about, playing harps and singing. It was nice, but not as enticing as the hot place.

Bill thought for a quick minute, and rendered his decision.

"Hmmm. I think I'd prefer the hot place," he told St. Peter.

"Fine," retorted St. Peter, "as you desire."

So Bill Gates went to the hot place.

Two weeks later, St. Peter decided to check on the late billionaire to see how he was doing in the hot place. When he got there, he found Bill, shackled to a wall, screaming amongst hot flames in dark caves, being burned and tortured by demons.

"How's everything going?" he asked Bill.

Bill responded, with his voice filled with anguish and disappointment, "This is awful! This is nothing like the hot place I visited two weeks ago! I can't believe this is happening! What happened to that other place, with the beautiful beaches, the scantily-clad women playing in the water?!???"

"That was the demo," replied St. Peter.



Btw:Fredil,you're getting better by the day.BRAVISIMO :)

*Fredil Yupigo thought it was the screensaver :) :)

A guy walks into a bar. After a couple of drinks, he sees two identical squirrels eating out of a bowl of nuts, and he's pretty sure they weren't there before. "Hey, where'd you two come from?" he asks.

In reply, he hears "Wow, you ARE drunk. There's only one of me." :)

*Fredil Yupigo is humbled by zorba's comment :)

Oh, Fredil, I laughed so much at your joke ..... only thing is, you didn't quite tell it right :) :)
Maybe it would come out better if you added an extra word:

Don't worry Fredil you've got good teachers here :)

A truck driver hauling a tractor trailer filled with computers stops for a beer. As he approaches the bar, he sees a big sign on the door reading, "Nerds Not Allowed -- Enter at Your Own Risk."

He enters the bar and sits down. The bartender comes over to him, sniffs him, says he smells kind of nerdy, and asks him what he does for a living. The truck driver says he drives a truck, and the smell is just from the computers he is hauling. The bartender says okay, truck drivers are not nerds, and serves him a beer.

As he is sipping his beer, a skinny guy walks in with tape around his glasses, a pocket protector with twelve kinds of pens and pencils, and a belt at least a foot too long. The bartender, without saying a word, pulls out a shotgun and blows the guy away.

The truck driver asks him why he did that. The bartender said not to worry, the nerds are overpopulating the Silicon Valley, and now they are in season.

"You don't even need a license," he said.

So the truck driver finishes his beer, gets back in his truck, and heads back onto the freeway. Suddenly, he veers to avoid an accident, and the load shifts. The back door breaks open and computers spill out all over the freeway. He jumps out and sees a crowd already forming, grabbing up the computers. They are all engineers, accountants, and programmers wearing the nerdiest clothes he has ever seen. He can't let them steal his whole load. Remembering what had happened in the bar, he pulls out his gun and starts blasting away, felling several of them instantly.

A highway patrol officer comes zooming up and jumps out of the car screaming at him to stop.

The truck driver says, "What's wrong? I thought nerds were in season."


"Well, sure," says the patrolman, "but you can't bait 'em."
