Well, this is not a pretty story.... about 200 dead crows near Hanna, and there was
concern for Avian Flu. They had a Bird Pathologist examine the remains of all the
crows, and he confirmed the problem was definitely NOT Avian Flu, to everyone's
relief.
However, he determined that 98% of the crows had been killed by impact
with trucks, and only 2% were killed by a car.

The Province then engaged anOrnithological Behaviorist to determine the
disproportionate percentages fortruck versus car kill.

The Ornithological Behaviorist determined the cause in short order. When crows
eat road kill, they always post a "look-out crow" in a nearby tree, to warn of
impending danger.

His conclusion was that the lookout crow would say: "Cah",but he could not say "Twuck."
Ahoy, me Hardies!

Two hunters are in the woods when they see a fetching blonde leaning, au naturel, against a tree.

One asks her, "Are you game?"

"Why yes," she purrs.

So they shot her.

and now a little joke for our Euro buddies:

An English cat, named One Two Three and a French cat, named Un Deux Trois, decided to have a swimming race across the Channel. The English cat won because Un Deux Trois cat sank.
The smoke wafted gently in the breeze across the poop deck and all seemed right in the world.

GOD:
Frank, you know all about gardens and nature. What in the world is going on down there on the planet? What happened to the dandelions, violets, milkweeds and stuff I started eons ago? I had a perfect no-maintenance garden plan. Those plants grow in any type of soil, withstand drought and multiply with abandon. The nectar from the long-lasting blossoms attracts butterflies, honey bees and flocks of songbirds. I expected to see a vast garden of colors by now. But, all I see are these green rectangles.

St. FRANCIS:
It's the tribes that settled there, Lord. The Suburbanites. They started calling your flowers 'weeds' and went to great lengths to kill them and replace them with grass.

GOD:
Grass? But, it's so boring. It's not colorful. It doesn't attract butterflies, birds and bees; only grubs and sod worms. It's sensitive to temperatures. Do these Suburbanites really want all that grass growing there?

ST. FRANCIS:
Apparently so, Lord. They go to great pains to grow it and keep it green. They begin each spring by fertilizing grass and poisoning any other plant that crops up in the lawn.

GOD:
The spring rains and warm weather probably make grass grow really fast. That must make the Suburbanites happy.

ST. FRANCIS:
Apparently not, Lord. As soon as it grows a little, they cut it... sometimes twice a week!

GOD:
They cut it? Do they then bale it like hay?

ST. FRANCIS:
Not exactly, Lord. Most of them rake it up and put it in bags.

GOD:
They bag it? Why? Is it a cash crop? Do they sell it?

ST. FRANCIS:
No, Sir, just the opposite. They pay to throw it away.

GOD:
Now, let me get this straight. They fertilize grass so it will grow. And, when it does grow, they cut it off and pay to throw it away?

ST. FRANCIS:
Yes, Sir.

GOD:
These Suburbanites must be relieved in the summer when we cut back on the rain and turn up the heat. That surely slows the growth and saves them a lot of work.

ST. FRANCIS:
You aren't going to believe this, Lord. When the grass stops growing so fast, they drag out hoses and pay more money to water it, so they can continue to mow it and pay to get rid of it.

GOD:
What nonsense. At least they kept some of the trees. That was a sheer stroke of genius, if I do say so myself. The trees grow leaves in the spring to provide beauty and shade in the summer. In the autumn, they fall to the ground and form a natural blanket to keep moisture in the soil and protect the trees and bushes. It's a natural cycle of life.

ST. FRANCIS:
You better sit down, Lord. The Suburbanites have drawn a new circle. As soon as the leaves fall, they rake them into great piles and pay to have them hauled away.

GOD:
No!? What do they do to protect the shrub and tree roots in the winter to keep the soil moist and loose?

ST. FRANCIS:
After throwing away the leaves, they go out and buy something which they call mulch. They haul it home and spread it around in place of the leaves.

GOD:
And where do they get this mulch?

ST. FRANCIS:
They cut down trees and grind them up to make the mulch.

GOD:
Enough! I don't want to think about this anymore. St. Catherine, you're in charge of the arts. What movie have you scheduled for us tonight?

ST. CATHERINE:
'Dumb and Dumber', Lord. It's a story about....

GOD:
Never mind, I think I just heard the whole story from St. Francis. .
Ahoy, me Hardies!

Einstein, Newton and Pascal were hanging out together one afternoon. Einstein was bored so he suggested that they play hide and seek. The others agree so he says, "I'll be it," closes his eyes and starts counting to 100.
Pascal runs off to find a place to hide.
Newton walks calmly to the middle of the room, takes a tape measure and a piece of chalk from his pocket and draws a carefully measured square on the floor. He finishes and steps into the square just as Einstein reaches 100 and shouts, "Ready or not, here I come!"
Einstein opens his eyes and immediately sees Newton. "Found you, Newton!" he shouts.
Newton replies, "No. You've found one newton per square meter - you have found Pascal."

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean Claude Van Damme and Sylvester Stallone are discussing making a film about composers. Van Damme wants to be Handel and Stallone chooses Mozart. Schwarzenegger looks at them and says 'I'll be Bach'.

Sailor says to the Chief "I found this pen, is it yours?"

The Chief replies "Don't know, give it here." He then tries it and says, "Yes it is"

The sailor asks "How do you know?"

The Chief replies, "That's my handwriting"

I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

An Arab Sheik was admitted to Hospital for heart surgery, but prior to the surgery, the doctors needed to store his type of blood in case the need arose.
As the gentleman had a very rare type of blood, it couldn't be found locally, so the call went out.
Finally, a Scotsman was located who had the same blood type. The Scot willingly donated his blood for the Arab.
As appreciation for giving his blood, the Arab sent the scotsman a new BMW, some diamonds and $100,000, happy that his surgery could now go ahead.
A couple of months later, once again, the Arab had to go through a corrective surgery. His doctor telephoned the Scotsman who was more than happy to donate his blood again.
After the second surgery, the Arab sent the Scotsman a thank-you card and a box of Quality Street chocolates.
The Scotsman was shocked that the Arab did not reciprocate his previous kind gesture as he had anticipated.
He phoned the Arab and asked him: "I thought you would be generous again, that you would give me a BMW, diamonds & money, but you only gave me a thank-you card and a box of Quality Street ."
To this the Arab replied: "Aye , laddie, but noo I hae Scots blood in ma veins!"
