• Building the Chunnel

    As the UK and French governments began plans for the Chunnel (English Channel Tunnel), they realized they didn't have the ability to build it themselves, so they put the project out for bid. Three teams: a German team, a Japanese team, and a Team from Punjab, led by Santa, submitted proposals and were asked to present their proposals to the selection committee.

    The German team led off the presentations, with their main selling point being their engineering prowess. The German presenter showed their latest generation tunnel boring machines with laser guided accuracy, impressing the committee.

    The German concluded his presentation saying, "For 2 billion Euros, we will bore from both sides of the tunnel, and one year later we will meet in the middle with and be less than 1 meter off!"

    The Japanese had a tough act to follow, but they knew their process quality techniques and enhanced productivity were better. The Japanese presenter showed their latest tunnel boring machines with advanced radar, their acumen in statistical process control, then bowed and stated, "For 1.8 billion Euros, we will bore from both sides of the tunnel, and 9 months later, we will meet in the middle and be less than 1 centimeter off!"

    The Punjabi team knew they were in trouble, but really believed in the work ethic of their people, so they decided to pitch their strengths.

    Team leader Santa looked the committee in the eyes as stated, "For 1 billion Euros and 50,000 cases of Whiskey, we will bore from both sides of the tunnel, hic, and if we don't meet in the middle you'll get TWO tunnels for the price of ONE!"

  • The Life of a Toothbrush

    A Dentist was conducting a survey: "How long do you use your Toothbrush...?"

    Chinese:
    "3 months...!!!"

Initially we use it for brushing our teeth; then we use it for dying our hair, cleaning comb, cleaning ornaments, cleaning machine parts of our vehicles, cleaning the dirt in between two tiles in bathroom etc... etc... Then when there are no bristles left on the brush, we do not throw it doctor. we start using it for pushing 'Naada' in our Chaddis, Pajamas & Petticoats...!!!"
