- Peter, Tim and Rod were attending a conference together and were sharing the penthouse suite of a luxurious 5 star resort which was located on the top floor. Having been in meetings all daylong they were disappointed to find that the lifts were all out of order upon their return as they would have to now climb 75 flights of stairs to get to their suite. They decided to break the monotony by concentrating on something amusing and interesting. Peter would tell jokes for the first 25 flights, Tim could sing songs for the next 25 flights, and Rod had the task of telling sad stories for the remaining flights of stairs. At the 26th floor Peter stopped telling jokes and Tim began to sing. At the 51st floor Rod began his sad story recital with: "I left the room key in the car!"
- Police Officer Smith delighted that he had found the perfect hiding spot where he could catch speeding motorists. He was amazed that during one particular watch there were absolutely no speeding drivers. Deciding to investigate, he found 10 year old entrepreneurial Jonny was to blame. A little way down the road he held a huge sign that stated "Radar Trap Ahead." His accomplice located just 100 yards after the radar trap stood with another sign reading "Tips" and a bucket overflowing with change stood at his feet!
Remember, laughter is the best medicine and he who laughs loudest wins!
