Cannibal Follow-up

Recently, a large corporation hired several cannibals to increase their

'You are all part of our team now', said the HR rep during the welcoming
briefing. 'You get all the usual benefits and you can go to the cafeteria for
something to eat, but don't eat any employees.' The cannibals promised they
would not.

Four weeks later the cannibal chief remarked, 'You're all working very hard
and I'm satisfied with your work. We have noticed a marked increase in the whole
company's performance. However, one of our secretaries has disappeared. Do any
of you know what happened to her?' The cannibals all shook their heads. 'No.'
After the boss had left, the chief of the cannibals said to the others, 'Which
one of you idiots ate the secretary?'

A hand rose hesitantly. 'You fool!' the leader raged. 'For four weeks we've
been eating managers and no one noticed anything. But NOOOooo, you had to go and
eat someone who actually does something.............

A Pastor Will and Guy Know

I can remember the first time I did some missionary work on an Indian
Reservation in the southwest of New Mexico. After we had built a couple of
homes and we were getting ready to leave I asked the Chief if there was
anything else we could do before we left. He asked if we could put in a
light along the path to the outhouse. After doing it and leaving for home I
realized that was the first time I had wired a head for a reservation.

and Guy's Favourite Top Ten Funny, But Silly Puns

  1. King Ozymandias of Assyria was running low on cash after years of
    war with the Hittites. His last great possession was the Star of the
    Euphrates, the most valuable diamond in the ancient world.Desperate, he went to Croesus, the pawnbroker, to ask for a loan.
    Croesus said, 'I'll give you 100,000 dinars for it.''But I paid
    a million dinars for it,' the King protested.

    'Don't you know
    who I am? I am the king!' Croesus replied, 'When you wish to pawn a
    Star, makes no difference who you are.'

  2. Evidence has been found that William Tell and his family were avid
    bowlers. However, all the Swiss league records were unfortunately
    destroyed in a fire, so we'll never know for whom the Tell's bowled.
  3. A man rushed into a busy doctor's office and shouted, 'Doctor! I
    think I'm shrinking.'The doctor calmly responded, 'Now, settle
    down. You'll just have to be a little patient.'
  4. A marine biologist developed a race of genetically engineered
    dolphins that could live forever if they were fed a steady diet of
    seagulls. One day, his supply of the birds ran out so he had to go out
    and trap some more.On the way back, he spied two lions asleep
    on the road. Afraid to wake them, he gingerly stepped over them.Immediately, he was arrested and charged with transporting gulls
    across sedate lions for immortal porpoises.
  5. Back in the 1800's, Tate's Watch Company of Waltham, Massachusetts
    wanted to produce other products.Since they already made watch
    cases, they used them to produce compasses, but the new compasses were
    so erratic that people
    often ended up in Canada or Mexico rather than
    California.This, of course, is the origin of the expression,
    'He who has a Tate is lost.'
  6. A thief broke into the local police station and stole all the
    toilets, leaving no clues. A spokesperson was quoted as saying, 'We have
    absolutely nothing to go on.'
  7. An Indian chief was feeling very sick, so he summoned the medicine
    After a brief examination, the medicine man took out a long,
    thin strip of elk rawhide and gave it to the chief, telling him to bite
    off, chew, and swallow one inch of the leather every day.After a
    month, the medicine man returned to see how the chief was feeling. The
    chief shrugged and said, 'The thong is ended, but the malady lingers
    on.'(At first Guy could not get this, but
    then I realised 'thong = song'.)
  8. A famous Viking explorer returned home from a voyage and found his
    name missing from the town register. His wife insisted on complaining to
    the local civic official who apologised profusely saying, 'I must have
    taken Leif off my census.'
  9. There were three Indian squaws.One slept on a deerskin, one
    slept on an elk skin, and the third slept on a hippopotamus skin. All
    three became pregnant, and the first two each had a baby boy. The one
    who slept on the hippopotamus skin had twin boys.This goes to
    prove that the squaw of the hippopotamus is equal to the sons of the
    squaws of the other two hides.
  10. A sceptical anthropologist was cataloguing South American folk
    remedies with the assistance of a tribal *brujo who indicated that the
    leaves of a particular fern were a sure cure for any case of
    constipation.When the anthropologist expressed his doubts, the
    brujo looked him in the eye and said, 'Let me tell you, with fronds like
    these, who needs enemas?'

* sorcerer or wizard

might figure one would win. Unfortunately, no pun in ten did.
