about mother wit

Postby **Elena** » Fri Jul 06, 2007 6:50 am

One day at a school in Harrow, London, a teacher said to the class of 5-year-olds, "I'll give £20 to the child who can tell me who was the most famous man who ever lived."

An Irish boy put his hand up and said, "It was St Patrick!"
The teacher said, "Sorry Paddy, that's not correct."

Then a Scottish boy put his hand up and said, "It was St Andrew!"

The teacher replied, "I'm sorry, Hamish, that's not right either."

Finally, Jay Patel raised his hand and said, "It was Jesus Christ!"

The teacher said, "That's absolutely right, Jay! Come up here and I'll give you the £20."

As the teacher was giving Jay his money, she said, "You know Jay, since you're a Patel, that means a Hindu, I was very surprised you said Jesus Christ!"

Jay replied, "Yes. In my heart I knew it was Krishna, but business is business!"

Uncle Bambang likes this joke.

A suprising ending.

Congrats.


"Business is business"


Well used, my dear.

Sorry Dixie, I disagree. It's not witty but tricky.

Three contractors . . . One from India, another from Germany and the third from England are bidding to repair the White House fence. A senior White House official takes them to examine it.

The English contractor : takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works on some figures with a pencil. "Well," he says. "I figure the job will cost $900 . . . $400 for materials, $400 for labour and $100 profit for me."

The German contractor : also does some measuring and figuring, then says, "I can do this job for $700 . . . $300 for materials, $300 for my crew and $100 profit for me."

The Indian contractor doesn't measure or do any figuring, but leans over to the White House official and whispers: " $2,700."

The official incredulously says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?"

"Easy," the Indian explains, "$1,000 for you, $1,000 for me and we hire the guy from Germany to do the work!"

Guess who got the contract........................!!
