a selection of jokes and short stories for Friday.
Roger left for work on Friday morning. Friday was payday, so instead
of going home, he stayed out the entire weekend partying with the boys and
spending his entire pay packet. Finally, Roger appeared at home on Sunday night, and obviously he was
confronted by his angry wife, Martha who castigated Roger for nearly two
hours with a tirade befitting his actions. Finally, Martha stopped the
nagging and said to Roger, 'How would you like it if you didn't see me for
two or three days?' Roger replied grimly, 'That would be fine with me.' Monday went by and he didn't see his Martha. Tuesday and Wednesday came
and went with the same results. By the Thursday, the swelling had gone down just enough so that Roger he could
see Martha a little out of the corner of his left eye

Friday's Goddess - Freya
wife was called Frigg (Freya). If you accept the Norse origins of the other days, then Fri day becomes a realistic derivation.
Interestingly, the Romans also saw this day as female, as they named it after their goddess Venus. This Latin root remains in the French for Friday, Vendredi. You will often see her wearing a robe of feathers, which enabled
her to fly through the air like a bird.
Good Deal for a Modern Freya
Freya was driving her Chevrolet Vega home in New Mexico when she saw an elderly Apache woman walking along the side of the road. She stopped the car and asked the woman if she would like a lift? With a
silent nod, the woman climbed into the car. Freya tried in vain to make conversation with the Apache woman. The old Apache looked closely at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she
noticed a red gift bag on the seat next to Freya. 'What's
in the bag?'
asked the old woman. 'It's
a bottle of gin that I got for my husband.' The Apache woman was silent for another minute or two.
Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said, 'Good trade.'

Don't Mess With the Elderly
Myra Rhodes, a little old lady living in Great Baddow, Essex, answered a
knock on the door one Friday, to be confronted by a well-dressed young man
carrying a vacuum cleaner. 'Good morning, Ma'am,' said the young man. 'If I could take a couple
minutes of your time, I would like to demonstrate the very latest in
high-powered vacuum cleaners.' 'Go away!' said Myra brusquely. 'I'm broke and haven't got any money,'
and she proceeded to close the door. Quick as a flash, the young man wedged his foot in the door and pushed it
wide open. 'Don't be too hasty,' he commanded. 'Not until you have at least
seen my demonstration.' And with that, he emptied a bucket of horse manure
onto her hallway carpet. 'Now, if this vacuum cleaner does not remove all traces of this horse
manure from your carpet, Madam, I will personally eat the remainder.' Myra stepped back and said with a smile, 'Well let me get you a spoon,
young man because they cut off my electricity this morning.'

Beware Dangers of Foggy
One Friday two motorists had an all too literal head on collision in heavy fog near the small town of Guetersloh, Germany. Each was guiding his car at a snail's
pace near the middle of the road
because of the thick fog. At the moment of impact their heads were both out of the windows when they smacked together. Both men were hospitalised with severe head injuries. Their cars weren't
damaged at all and
have a mark on them. Follow-up to Friday Accidents The report issued by the Dutch Centre for Insurance Statistics on June
12, 2008, states "fewer accidents and reports of fire and theft occur when
the 13th of the month falls on a Friday than on other Fridays, because
people are preventatively more careful or just stay home." This in turn was
reflected in the reports received by Dutch insurance companies, in the last
three years, which showed that on normal Fridays, the number of traffic
accidents touched a figure of approximately 7,800 but it decreased to 7,500
on a Friday the 13th in The Netherlands.
What can go wrong, will go wrong, especially on a Friday.

Only in America - Crazy Awards
A man from Little Rock, Arkansas was
awarded $14,500 and medical expenses after being bitten on the buttocks by his next door neighbour's
beagle. The beagle was on a chain in its owner's
fenced-in yard, as was the man. The award was less
than sought because the jury felt that the man who, at the time, was shooting the animal repeatedly with a pellet gun might have provoked the dog.

Law of DIY (Do-It-Yourself )
Any project will require at least two journeys to the hardware shop. If you need more than one item (pair, four, etc) the probability
that one will be damaged or the wrong colour is directly
to the desire or need of the object. You always need more paint. You never have enough nails, screws or glue. The likelihood that you will complete a weekend project before the end of the weekend decreases with when you actually start the project. Therefore: Any plumbing project started after 4pm on Sunday will
require an emergency call to the plumber to get the water running
again. To estimate the amount of time needed to complete a project:
estimate the amount of time needed, multiply by two and use the next
highest unit. Hence: A one hour task will take at least two
days to complete.
