Desperate Bridegroom Needed Money For Wedding

A desperate bridegroom faces jail, not a reception and honeymoon, as his
reward for staging four bank robberies after his fiancée's plans for a huge
white wedding got out of hand. His "bride to be" demanded a reception with
500 guests, a Chanel wedding gown, a new car for the drive to the service
and a Caribbean honeymoon.

The poor man was unable to provide the money for these jollities so he
stole some £300,000 [$ 4,228,210 USD] in bank robberies throughout Austria
before he was caught when an off duty policeman grabbed him as he fled from
a bank in Vienna.

'The wedding was costing a lot of money and I realised I would never be
able to pay for it,' he told the court. 'The money from the first robbery
went in a day so I just kept going.'

Help Police - Find Me A Husband!

Divorcee, Angela Stahl, aged 44, a desperate housewife, has been reported
for wasting police time in Germany after dialling 999 more than one hundred
times in the hope of finding a new husband. We have learned that she plagued
the emergency line with endless calls claiming she couldn't afford dating

Eventually and unsurprisingly two police officers finally
visited her home in Berlin, Germany and confiscated the battery from her
mobile phone.

There is nothing so funny as real life say Will and Guy.

Licence Demand Sent To 16th Century Mathematician

A German mathematician who died 450 years ago has been sent a letter
demanding that he pay for a TV licence. Algebra expert, Adam Ries, who
bought the property in 1525 was sent the bill in Germany.

'We received a letter saying "To Mr Adam Ries" on it, with the request to
pay his television and radio fees,' said Annegret Muench, who now heads a
club honouring the mathematician, which uses the house as its HQ. Miss
Muench returned the letter to the GEZ with a note explaining the request had
come too late, as Ries had died in 1559, but she still received a reminder a
few weeks later.

This was not the first time the GEZ had sent a bill to those in the
afterlife. Last year, a school named after the poet Friedrich Schiller, who
died in 1805, received a reminder asking him to declare all radios and
televisions in his home and pay the corresponding fees.

Will and Guy say, 'Don't you just love these stories?'

Picking Lemons Is Easy

Sally Winters wanted to earn some money so she applied for a post in a
Florida lemon grove which seemed eminently suitable but Sally was concerned
that she might be over qualified for the job.

'Look Miss Winters,' said Archie, the foreman, seriously 'have you any
actual experience in picking lemons?' 'Well, as a matter of fact, yes,' came
Sally's reply and she added confidently, 'I've been divorced three times.'

How To Get A Table In A Crowded Restaurant

The Harbour Lights Restaurant, Portsmouth, England, was extremely busy
last Saturday evening and they had no free tables.

be, at least, an 1 ½ hours wait to be seated.

'Young man,' explained Ronnie patiently, looking at Sylvie with a twinkle

Person with Funny Name Commits 50 Offences

Police in the Republic of Ireland, the Garda, have been chasing a
mysterious and impossible to find Polish driver who has apparently committed
more than 50 motoring offences.

Officers had been puzzled how the mysterious "Prawo Jazdy" had always
produced his documents, but each time with a different address.

They have now discovered the embarrassing truth. Will and Guy's friend,
Kinga Sadkowska, from Sopot, Poland, has told us that "Prawo Jazdy" is
Polish for "driving licence" and is printed on all Polish licences.

We are delighted to be able to report this hilarious story.

Finally: 'Stop That Laughing.'

Gary Saunders, a motorist from Liverpool, England, was stopped by a
traffic police officer and reprimanded for laughing at the wheel of his car.
He was using a hands-free 'phone when he burst out laughing at a joke told
him by his brother-in-law.

A few moments later he noticed a traffic officer flashing his lights at
him and gesticulating at him to stop his Renault. When Mr Saunders got out
of his car, the policeman castigated him, 'Laughing while driving a car can
be an offence.'

'I couldn't believe it when he told me I'd been pulled over for
laughing,' Mr Saunders is reported as saying, 'I was driving very safely in
the Birkenhead Tunnel and took a call. He said something funny and I was
laughing; simple as that. I never took my eyes off the road and was in full
control of the car. I definitely wasn't speeding so I asked what the problem
was and he told me I was laughing too much.'

Will and Guy also laughed at this story and we have discovered since that
Mr Saunders has not been prosecuted - just told off.
