The lighter side of what to do with an unexpected windfall.
A man wakes up in the hospital bandaged from head to toe.
The doctor comes in and says, "Ah, I see you've regained consciousness. Now you probably won't remember, but you were in a huge pile-up on the freeway. You're going to be okay, you'll walk again and everything, however, your penis was severed in the accident and we couldn't find it."
The man groans, but the doctor goes on, "You have $10,000 in insurance compensation coming and we now have the technology to build a new penis. They work great but they don't come cheap. It's roughly $500 a centimetre."
The man perks up. "So," the doctor says. "You must decide how many centimetres you want. But I understand that you have been married for over 30 years and this is something you should discuss with your wife. If you had 10cm before and get 20cm now she might be a bit put out. If you had 20cm before and you decide to only invest in 10cm now, she might be disappointed. It's important that she plays a role in helping you make a decision."
The man agrees to talk it over with his wife.
The doctor comes back the next day.
"So, have you spoken with your wife?"
"Yes I have," says the man.
"And has she helped you make a decision?"
"Yes" says the man.
"What is your decision?" asks the doctor.
"We're getting granite counter tops."
A man wants to rent a camel. He drives around and notices a man on the side of the road sitting with a sign that says, "Camel 4 Rent". He pulls over and talks to the owner about a rental.
"It will cost you $250 for one hour," says the owner of the camel.
"$250?! That's pretty expensive. How am I even supposed to know this camel is any good?" asks the man.
"It is the fastest, most reliable camel in all the land," the owner quips. "Here, I'll show you."
The owner places the camel on two large rocks then walks below it and smacks the camel's testicles using two stones. The camel jumps and proceeds to run at breakneck speed.
"You see, I told you it's fast," says the owner.
"Wow, that's amazing! I want to ride it, but it's pretty far. How do I catch up with it?" asks the man.
"Tell you what, can you step on these two large rocks real quick?"
An Englishman, an Irishman and a Scotsman each order a Guinness. Just then, a fly drops in each of their pints.
The Englishman says: "How dreadful. Barkeep, take this pint back at once, I couldn't possibly touch it, it has a fly in it!"
The Irishman flicks the fly out with the back of his hand and chugs his beer.
The Scotsman gingerly picks up the fly by the wing, gives the fly a little wiggle and says: "You spit that out! You spit that out!"
