:: The Post Office Job Interview ::

A guy goes to the Post Office to apply for a job.
The interviewer asks him "Are you allergic to anything?"
He says "Yes, just caffeine."
"Have you ever been in the service?" the interviewer asks.
"Yes," he says, "I was in Iraq for two years."
The interviewer says, "That will give you 5 extra points toward employment here.” and then asks, "Are you disabled in any way?"
The guy says, "Yes... an IED exploded near me and blew my testicles clean off."
The interviewer tells the guy "O.K. In that case, I can hire you right now.
Normal hours are from 8am to 4pm. You can start tomorrow at 10am, and plan on starting at 10am every day. Don't worry, we'll still pay you from 8am."
The guy is puzzled and says, "If the hours are from 8am to 4pm, why don't you want me to be here before 10am?"
"This is a government job," the interviewer says.
"For the first two hours we just stand around drinking coffee and scratching our balls. No point in you coming in for that."

:: The Art of Eating Ketchup ::

Imagine this. You are at your favourite fastfood restaurant. You ordered yourself a nice burger. You sit down. Arrange your food. Take the ketchup packets. Rip them open on one side. You unwrapped those paper wrappers and proceed to remove the top bun, exposing the meat. YOu take the ketchup packet and squeeze all the content out to the center of the burger. Than, you take the top half bread part and just squesh it back to place.

Does this sound like you? Are you eating burgers this way? If you are.... YOU ARE NOT EATING IT THE RIGHT WAY!

Let Crainte la baise face teach you the PROPER way to eat your burger with ketchup (can apply with packets of chili sauce too)!

Why is it wrong?

It is wrong because when you do that, all the sauce will be concentrated only on the center, leaving the center as sour as hell (spicy if its chili sauce) and the outer layer parts bland. By doing so, you are also making the center part mushy. Who likes mushy burgers man!

If its wrong, what do i do to make it right?

Well, two left turns don't make a right. Right? Introducing, "THE ART OF EATING KETCHUP"!!! (manual for NOT MAKING AN ASS OF YOURSELF WHILE EATING BURGER comes exclusively for first 5 people who yells "GODZILLA" in the girls toilet)

The Art of Eating Ketchup

The Art of Eating Ketchup was created by a group of scientist looking to solve this big mystery. Many ways were created and tested but to no avail. One day, a scientist name Dr. Wersmypundik was about to eat a burger when his phone rang. It was an important call and he needed to write down a memo but has no pen or paper within his reach. Seeing the exposed burger and the opened ketchup packet, he took the ketchup packet and wrote the message on the beef patty. After hanging up, he took a pen and paper and wrote what was on the patty down on the paper. He covered the burger and proceed to eat it. He realized that the ketchup was spread even! Leaving no mushy center or the concentrated sour taste at the center! He realized that by writing a message onto the patty, he is spreading the sauce evenly throughout the patty!

Why should i follow The Art of Eating Ketchup?

Why not?

Well, The Art of Eating Ketchup is not only for burgers, you can eat it with fries or chickens! Have fun, write love messages or messages of hope and peace. Below is an example i did a few days back.

















(Note, the message is not to anyone in particular. It was done out of fun and boredom. If you think it is a message to you, please sit down and consider what wrong you have done to me to make you think that I would write that message down just for you and you only.)

So what are you waiting for!? Enjoy the Art of Eating Ketchup now!

*Author holds no responsibility or is liable for actions that user may suffer from if someone sitting around your area sees the message written. Author is also not responsible if sauces are stale. No backspace or undo is possible after writing the message on the patty. Blankco is not recommended due to poisonous substance found in it.

:: The Hotel Bill ::

The Hotel Bill

Next time you think your hotel bill is too high you might want to consider
this...

Husband and wife are traveling by car from Key West to Boston. After
almost twenty-four hours on the road, they're too tired to continue, and
they decide to stop for a rest.

They stop at a nice hotel and take a room, but they only plan to sleep for
four hours and then get back on the road.

When they check out four hours later, the desk clerk hands them a bill for
$350.00.

The man explodes and demands to know why the charge is so high.

He tells the clerk although it's a nice hotel, the rooms certainly aren't
worth $350.00!

When the clerk tells him $350.00 is the standard rate, the man insists on
speaking to the Manager.

The Manager appears, listens to the man, and then explains that the hotel
has an Olympic-sized pool and a huge conference center that were available
for the husband and wife to use.

'But we didn't use them,' the man complains.

'Well, they are here, and you could have,' explains the Manager.

He goes on to explain they could have taken in one of the shows for which
the hotel is famous.

'The best entertainers from New York , Hollywood and Las Vegas perform
here,' the Manager says.
'But we didn't go to any of those shows,' complains the man again.

'Well, we have them, and you could have,' the Manager replies.

No matter what amenity the Manager mentions, the man replies, 'But we
didn't use it!'

The Manager is unmoved, and eventually the man gives up and agrees to pay.
He writes a check and gives it to the Manager.

The Manager is surprised when he looks at the check. 'But sir,' he says,
this check is only made out for $50.00.'

'That's correct,' says the man. 'I charged you $300.00 for sleeping with
my wife.'

'But I didn't!' exclaims the Manager.
'Well, too bad,' the man replies. 'She was here and you could have.'
