A bit of Humor

Touch of class - or all present and incorrect

 Registry on the first day back at school in ENGLAND, the teacher began calling out the names of the pupils:

"Mustafa Al Eih Zeri? "Here

"Achmed El Kabul? "Here

"Fatima Al Hayek? "Here"

Ali Abdul Olmi? "Here"

"Mohammed Bin Kadir? "Here

Ali Son al En - silence in the classroom

Ali Son al En - continued silence as everyone looked around the room. The teacher repeated the call. At last a girl hesitantly stood up and said, "Sorry, teacher. I think that's me. It's pronounced Alison Allen."

Irish stewed: Let's make that a triple

On his way home one night, Paddy dropped into the pub.
The barman poured him a beer and asked if he wanted to be in a raffle.
"What's it for?" asked Paddy.
"It's for a poor widow with 13 kids", said the barman.
Paddy shook his head, "No good for me. I'd never be able to keep them."

"YOUR glass is empty, o'Flaherty, will you be having another?"

"And why would I be wanting two empty glasses?" replied o'Flaherty.

MURPHY arrived home late from the pub, well-oiled and ready for trouble. "Is that you Murphy?" called his wife.

"It damned well better be!"

Well and truly brought to book . . .

Husband's daily reminder for his wife

Next day he says, "Today is a fine day."
Again next day, he says the same thing, "Today is a fine day."
Finally, after a week, the wife can't take it and asks her husband, "Since last week, you have been saying; Today is a fine day. I am fed up. What's the matter?"
Husband: "Last week when we had an argument, you said, I will leave you one fine day. I was just trying to remind you."
