|Alice was to bake a cake for the church ladies' group bake sale, but she forgot to do it until the last minute. She baked an angel food cake and when she took it from the oven, the center had dropped flat.|
She said, "Oh dear, there's no time to bake another cake."
So, she looked around the house for something to build up the center of the cake. Alice found it in the bathroom ... a roll of toilet paper. She plunked it in and covered it with icing.
The finished product looked beautiful, so she rushed it to the church.
Before she left the house, Alice had given her daughter some money and specific instructions to be at the bake sale the minute it opened, and to buy that cake and bring it home. When the daughter arrived at the sale, the attractive cake had already been sold. Alice was beside herself.
The next day, Alice was invited to a friend's home where two tables of bridge were to be played that afternoon. After the game, a fancy lunch was served, and to top it off, the cake in question was presented for dessert. Alice saw the cake, she started to get out of her chair to rush into the kitchen to tell her hostess all about it, but before she could get to her feet, one of the other ladies said, "What a beautiful cake!" Alice sat back in her chair when she heard the hostess (who was a prominent church member) say, "Thank you, I baked it myself."
|Interesting read for English lovers...|
Once Ishwarchandra Vidyasagar jokingly asked Madhusudhan Dutt, "As you are a master in English, can you make a sentence without using 'E'?"
He wrote this...
"I doubt I can. It's a major part of many many words. Omitting it is as hard as making muffins without flour. It's as hard as spitting without saliva, napping without a pillow, driving a train without tracks, sailing to Russia without a boat, washing your hands without soap.
"And, anyway, what would I gain? An award? A cash bonus? Bragging rights? Why should I strain my brain? It's not worth it."
|There was a student who wanted to be admitted to the University.|
He was smart enough to get through the written test, a GED, and was to appear for the personal interview. Later, as the interview progressed, the interviewer found this boy to be bright since he could answer all the questions correctly. The interviewer got impatient and decided to corner the boy.
"Tell me your choice," said he to the boy, "What's your choice? I shall either ask you ten easy questions or one real difficult. Think well before you make up your mind."
The boy thought for a while and said, "My choice is one real difficult question."
"Well, good luck to you, you have made your own choice!" said the man on the opposite side. Tell me: What comes first, Day or Night?"
The boy was jolted first but he waited for a while and said, "It's the Day, sir."
Thinking to himself ("At last, I got you!"), the interviewer smiled and said, "How???"
"Sorry sir, you promised me that you would ask me ONLY ONE difficult question!"
The student was admitted to the University.
|Morris went to his lawyer and told him, "My neighbor owes me $500 and he doesn't want to pay up. What should I do?"|
"Do you have any proof?" asked the lawyer.
"Nope," Morris replied.
"Okay, then write him a nasty letter asking him for the $1000 he owes you," said the lawyer.
"But it's only $500," Morris insisted.
"Precisely. That's what he will reply and we will then have the proof we need to nail him."
