11)    Joke of the week


There I was, sitting at the bar staring at my drink when a large, troublemaking biker stepped up next to me, grabbed my drink and gulped it down in one swig.


"Well, whatchagonna do about it?" he saidmenacingly, as I burst into tears. "Come on, man," the biker said, "I can't stand to see a man cry."

"This is the worst day of my life," I said ‘’I'm a complete failure.

 

I was late for a meeting and my boss fired me. I went to the car park and found my car had been stolen and I don't have any insurance.

I left my wallet in the cab I took home and there I found my wife in bed with another manAnd then my dog bit me.


So I came to this bar to work up the courage to put an end to it all.

 

I bought this drink and dropped a capsule in and sat here watching the poison dissolve. Then you show up and drink the whole thing!

 

But enough about me, how's your day going?"

 

 

Regards,

Andrew Ransom
