    The strange tale of the bronze cat

    One day, an Englishman walked into an antiques shop in London. Looking
    around he notices a life-sized bronze sculpture of a cat. The sculpture
    is so intriguing, he decides he must buy it and asks the shopkeeper the

    "Twelve pounds for the cat, sir," the shopkeeper tells him, "and 100
    pounds for the story that goes with it."

    "I'll take the cat," says the man, "but you can keep your story." The
    transaction completed, the Englishman leaves the store with the bronze
    cat in his arms.

    As he crosses the street in front of the store, two live cats emerge
    from an alley and fall into step behind him. Nervously looking over his
    shoulder he begins to walk faster, but every time he passes another
    alley, more cats come out and follow him. By the time he’s walked two
    blocks, at least a hundred cats are at his heels, and people begin to
    point and shout. He walks even faster and soon breaks out into a trot
    as multitudes of cats swarm from alleys, basements, vacant lots and
    abandoned cars.

    Thousands of cats are now at his heels, and he sees the waterfront at
    the bottom of the hill, he panics and starts to run full tilt. No
    matter how fast he runs, the cats keep up hissing insanely, now not
    just thousands but millions, so that by the time he comes rushing up to
    the waters edge a trail of cats several blocks long is behind him.

    Making a mighty leap, he jumps onto a light post, grasping it with one
    arm while he hurls the bronze cat into the river Thames. Clinging to
    the light post, he watches in amazement as the seething tide of cats
    surges over the banks of the river, where they all drown.

    Amazed and almost dumbstruck, he makes his way back to the antiques
    shop. "Ah, so you’ve come back for the story," says the shopkeeper.

    "No." says the Englishman, "I was wondering if you have a bronze asylum


      Sir Alex Ferguson is on "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" and has reached the
      million pound question.

      Chris Tarrent says "Right Sir Alex, this is for one million pounds, and
      remember, you still have two lifelines left, so please take your time.

      "Here's your question: What type of animal lives in a sett? Is it a) a
      badger b) a ferret c) a mole or d) a cuckoo?"

      Fergie ponders for a while and says "No, I'm sorry Chris, I'm not too sure.

      I'll have to go 50-50."

      Chris says "Right, Sir Alex, let's take away two wrong answers and see what
      you're left with. 'Badger' and 'cuckoo' are the two remaining answers."

      Fergie has a long think, then scratches his head and says "No, Chris, I'm
      still not sure, I'm going to have to phone a friend."

      "So who are you going to call, Sir Alex?" says Chris. "Hmmm..." ponders
      Fergie. "I think I'll call David Beckham."

      So Tarrent phones David Beckham. "David, this is Chris Tarrent from 'Who
      Wants To Be A Millionaire'. I've got Sir Alex Ferguson here, and with your
      help he could win one million pounds.

      The next voice you hear will be Sir Alex's".

      "Hello David" says Fergie. "It's the boss here. What type of animal lives
      in a sett? Is it a badger or a cuckoo?" "It's a badger, boss." says Becks
      without hesitation.

      "You sure, son?" says Fergie. "Definitely, boss. One hundred per cent.It's a
      badger. Definitely."

      "Right, Chris," says Fergie, "I'll go with David. The answer's a badger.
      Final answer."

      "Sir Alex," says Chris, "that's the correct answer. You've won one million

      Cue wild celebrations. Next morning at training, Fergie calls Beckham across.

      "Son, that was brilliant last night. I thought I might be taking a gamble
      giving you a call, but you played a blinder! But how the f**k did you know
      that a badger lives in a set?" says Fergie.

      "Oh I didn't, boss," replies Beckham, "but everybody knows a cuckoo lives in
      a clock."


        How to get posted to traffic duty...

        The following story relates to an incident that occurred in Nigeria when four
        policemen were hired to provide security at a wedding.

        A police spokesman said "As is customary after the service, the officers
        took out their guns and fired shots into the air as a mark of respect to the
        new couple. But, possibly due to the influence of alcohol, their aim was
        slightly beserk, and they very much appear to have accidentally shot and
        killed Mr Okonkwo (the groom) and his wife, along with the organist, another
        man who was representing the father-in-law, and someone who hadn't even been

        "Of course we take this matter very seriously, and if we can find out which
        of the four policemen fired the fatal shots, take it from me, this will be
        the last wedding he attends for some time. From now on, it will be traffic
        duty only for him"

          A Connecticut man's shaving cream disguise dripped off his face during a
          failed raid on a shop. Mickey Lyman has pleaded guilty to assault,
          risking injury to a child and unlawful restraint after the raid on the
          shop in Rockville. The 44-year-old entered the shop wearing the shaving
          cream disguise and brandishing a starter pistol. Shop owner Shahab Mirza
          said: "In a second we recognised him." Lyman is a regular customer.

          A US magician's been arrested in Japan for allegedly trying to smuggle a
          large amount of cannabis inside his juggling balls. Terence David Shaird
          began performing one of his tricks when custom officials asked him to open
          his bags at Narita Airport. The officials became suspicious and found a
          kilogram of the drug inside two balls.

          A pair of Siamese twins have found love with the same man. Cape Town's
          Karen and Nikki Stafford have both settled down with trucker Ron Bullock.
          "Nikki loves Ron's romantic side," said Karen. "And he makes me laugh."
          Ron is equally complimentary. "Being with both Nikki and Karen is like
          love in stereo."

          An American TV executive has admonished viewers for ignoring adverts.
          Jamie Kellner, chairman of Turner Broadcasting, complained that by

          with the network is that you're going to watch the advertising spots."

          Los Angeles school teacher Tracy Niederkirk has been fired after stripping

          Two airline pilots have been charged with being drunk in charge of an
          aircraft at Miami International Airport. The America West pilots were
          ordered to return to the airport terminal moments before takeoff. Police
          say security screeners had noticed a whiff of alcohol on the men when they
          tried to bring cups of coffee through the checkpoint.

          Tony Bennett and his group Active Resistance to Metrication, carried out a
          three-year campaign against Lee Valley Regional Park Authority. In
          December anti-metric activists damaged about 15 signs in the 10,000 acre
          park which stretches from Ware in Herts, to the East India Dock Basin in
          east London. The park has now admitted it had been wrong to change
          footpath signs from imperial to metric.

          Percy, a border collie mix dog, is running for Congress in Florida
          againstSecretary of State Katherine Harris. The write-in candidate in
          theRepublican primary has his own official website
          www.percyforcongress.org which states: "Percy, District 13's only black
          white candidate, fluent in Spanish, is a strong believer in cross culture,
          cross species interface, and has vowed, if elected, to support programmes
          that foment these ideals."

          Paul Gordon-Saker, a partner in London law firm Stephenson Harwood, has
          issued a writ seeking libel damages from Diners' Club after his card was
          turned down by an exclusive London fashion store when he tried to buy a
          dress for his wife. Gordon-Saker claims that this amounted to libel
          because it erroneously suggested he did not have sufficient credit with
          the company to meet the £380 cost of the dress.

          The FBI and New Orleans police are looking for people who took bags of
          money that fell out of the back of an armoured van. The Intertrust
          Armored Services vehicle had exited a motorway when its back door opened
          and the money dropped out. The driver didn't realise at first what had
          happened and continued his journey.

          Christopher Antus was arrested while wearing the bright orange shirt which
          read: "Fugitive. You never saw me." Indiana State police Trooper Jerrod
          Patty spotted the shirt after pulling the car over for allegedly drifting
          off the roadway. When he checked the names of the passengers in the car,
          he discovered an arrest warrant was out for Antus

          Two Canadian otters at the National Sea Life Sanctuary in Oban, Scotland
          have been placed under 24-hour protection from aggressive local otters who
          are confused by their "foreign accents," a newspaper reported Wednesday.
          Though almost twice the size of their wild Scottish relatives, the pair
          are disadvantaged by their foreign accents and scent. Dialects are common
          in animal communications, but because of the differences in the sounds
          they make it will be difficult for these Canadian otters to communicate
          with the native ones," Matthew Evans, an animal communications expert from
          Stirling University, was quoted as saying. There is no doubt dropping two
          foreign otters into a territory of wild locals would lead to the local
          ones beating the living daylights out of the new ones"


            On a tour of New Zealand, the Pope took a couple of days off his
            itinerary to visit the wild West coast of Northland on an impromptu
            sightseeing trip.

            His 4X4 Popemobile was driving along the golden sands when there was an
            enormous commotion heard just off a headland.

            He rushed to see what it was and upon approaching the scene the Pope
            noticed just outside the surf, a hapless man wearing a gold football
            jersey, struggling frantically to free himself from the jaws of a twenty
            foot shark.

            At that moment a speedboat containing three men wearing black football
            tops roared into view from around the point. Spontaneously, one of the men
            took aim and fired a harpoon into the shark's ribs, immobilising it
            instantly. The other two reached out and pulled the Aussie from the water
            and then, using long clubs, beat the shark to death. They bundled the
            bleeding, semi-conscious man into the speed boat along with the dead shark
            and then prepared for a hasty retreat, when they heard
            frantic shouting from the shore.

            It was of course the Pope, and he summoned them to the beach. Upon them
            reaching the shore the Pope went into raptures about the rescue and
            "I give you my blessing for your brave actions. I had heard that there
            were some racist xenophobic people trying to divide Australia & New
            Zealand, but, now I have seen with my own eyes this is not true. I can
            see that your society is a truly enlightened example of racial harmony and
            could serve as a model on which other nations could follow." He blessed
            them all and drove off in a cloud of dust.

            As he departed, the harpoonist asked the others: 'Who was that???!"

            "That," one answered, "was his Holiness the Pope. He is in direct
            contact with God and has access to all God's wisdom."

            "Well," the harpoonist replied, "he knows **** all about shark hunting.
            How's that bait holding up or do we need to get another one?"


              Way down in the deep south, in an area known as the 'Bible Belt,' there lived
              a Baptist minister with a very large congregation. One morning, after a
              particularly moving sermon, he announced, "Friends I have been hearing very
              nasty rumors!"
              The crowd fell into an expectant silence. The Minister continued, "One of
              you, here among us, has been reporting that I am a member of the dreaded
              'Klu Klux Klan.' This, of course, is not true! I am asking that the guilty
              party confess and apologize now - right here - before my flock of loyal
              Sister Margaret quickly stood up and pleaded, "Preacher, please, I don't know
              how this all came to be. I just mentioned to one of my close friends that
              you were a wizard under the sheets."


                Saving the airline industry!

                Letter to the Federal Aviation Agency
                800 Independence Avenue S.W.
                D.C. 20591

                Dear Sirs,

                I've had a lot of time on my hands of late and believe that I may have the
                solution for the prevention of hijackings, and at the same time we just might
                get the Airline industry back on its feet.

                Here's my plan: Since Muslim men are not allowed to look at naked or
                nearly naked women, we should replace all of our female flight
                attendants with strippers. Muslims would not get on the planes for
                fear of seeing a naked or nearly naked woman. Of course every
                businessman in this country would start flying again in
                anticipation of seeing naked women. Hijackings would come to a
                screeching halt and the airline industry would probably have record sales.
                Hell, I'd fly all over just for the scenery. It truly puzzles me that
                congress didn't already come up with this. Am I the only one
                who thinks clearly on these issues?
