I'll start it off.

Two Consultant surgeons are having a quick round of golf before returning to their operating theatres.

There are two women several holes in front of them playing very slowly...it looks like the surgeons won't have time to finish their round.

One says he will ask them to speed up a bit. He starts off towards them, but stops, pulls his cap over eyes and walks back to his colleague.

" Whats up ? " asks his friend " Its my wife" he mutters, " and her partner is my mistress ! I didn't know they knew each other..."

" Oh dear" says the other man...Well I will go and ask them to speed up.

He sets off , gets close, and pulls his cap down over eyes and returns.

" What ?" says his friend.

The second man replies , " its a small world "......

    One day a guy gets up in the morning to find a large gorilla up the tree in his garden, perturbed he phones his local police station who tell him they are sending round someone who specializes in this sort of thing.

    About half an hour later there is a knock at his door and when he answers he comes face to face with a little old man in a flat cap and overalls, who asks him if he's the fellow with the gorilla problem. When the homeowner says yes he says wait here I'll just get my gear from the van.

    The little old man returns with a large stick, a ladder, a massive slavering rottweiler and a double barreled shot gun. He then proceeds to hand the rottweiler and the shotgun to the householder.

    The old man explains his plan - he will take the ladder climb the tree and poke the gorilla with his stick, when the gorilla falls out of the tree the dog will bite the gorilla in the nuts rendering it immobile.

    That's great said the guy but whats the shotgun for? The old man says if I fall out of the tree first shoot the dog.

    an ant and an elephant both were riding their own bikes, came from opposite sides and had an accident. ant was safe, but elephant got major injuries and was admitted to ICU. why?

    .

    .

    think think

    think a little bit more

    .

    .

    because ant was wearing helmet, but not the elephant.

    then another ant was seen rushing to the hospital. when the ant was asked, why she was running, she replied - i am going to donate blood to elephant, as his blood group is in shortage. :)

    an ant got married to an elephant. on honeymoon night, the ant whispered something in elephant's ear - hearing that, the elephant got heart-attack and died.

    what did ant said to elephant?

    think pls..

    you can think it - try try..

    .

    the ant said to elephant - she is going to become mother of his child.

    after the elephant's death, the ant was seen weeping and taking a spade to dig the ground - this continued for 7 days, but the ant kept on weeping - seeing this, another ant asked her that why she is crying so much? did she loved her husband elephant so much that even tough they were married for just 1 day and the elephant died on honeymoon night, still the ant is missing the elephant so much, because of which she is continuously crying for 7 days?

    then the ant replied - no, i am crying over the fact that we were married for just 1 night and my remaining whole life will pass by digging the burial ground for the elephant.

    One for the Aussies:

    There's a fellow called Trevor who is a member of Mensa with an IQ well over 150. While this is helpful, he also occasionally gets sick of basically knowing everything.

    One day he's walking down the street and sees a new shop called "Andy's IQ Shop - get your IQ put up or down instantly" so he thinks he'll check it out.

    He wanders in and finds Andy sitting at the front desk. He explains he wants his IQ put down to about 120. Above average but not too high.

    Andy straps him into the IQ machine and pulls a lever. Instantly the needle shoots up to 155. He presses a button and Trevor's IQ starts to drop: 150, 140, 130, 120.......

    When it gets to 120 Andy pulls the lever but nothing happens! Trevor's IQ keeps going down: 110, 100, 90, 80, 70.....

    By this stage Andy is frantic! He is pulling at the lever like a mad man!

    Trevor's IQ keeps dropping: 60, 50, 40, 30......finally it stops on 20.

    Andy is mortified. What have I done? He unstraps Trevor from the machine (who is staring at him blankly) and says "Say something PLEASE!"

    Trevor opens his mouth and says "Good old Collingwood forever......."**

    For those of you who watch what you eat, here's the final word on nutrition
    and health. It's a relief to know the truth after all those conflicting medical studies:

    1. The Japanese eat very little fat and suffer fewer heart attacks than the
    Americans, Australians, British, or Canadians.
    
    2. The Mexicans eat a lot of fat and also suffer fewer heart attacks than
    the Americans, Australians, British, or Canadians.
    
    3. The Japanese drink very little red wine and suffer fewer heart attacks
    than the Americans, Australians, British, or Canadians.
    
    4. The Italians drink large amounts of red wine and also suffer fewer heart
    attacks than the Americans, Australians, British, or Canadians.
    
    5. The Germans drink a lot of beer and eat lots of sausages and fats and
    suffer fewer heart attacks than the Americans,Australians, British, or Canadians.
    
    6. Ukrainians drink a lot of vodka, eat a lot of perogies, cabbage rolls and
    suffer fewer heart attacks than the Americans, Australians, British, or Canadians.
    
    CONCLUSION: Eat and drink what you like.  Speaking English is apparently what kills you.

    Kia Ora,

    Three Buddhist monks decided to practise meditation together. They sat by the side of a lake and closed their eyes in concentration.

    Then suddenly, the first one stood up and said, “I forgot my mat.” He steeped miraculously onto the water in front of him and walked across the lake to their hut on the other side.

    When he returned, the second monk stood up and said, “I forgot to put my underwear out to dry.” He too walked calmly across the water and returned the same way.

    The third monk watched the first two carefully in what he decided must be the test of his own abilities. “Is your learning so superior to mine?

    I too can match any feat you two can perform,” he declared loudly and rushed to the water’s edge to walk across it. He promptly fell into the deep water.

    Undeterred, the monk climbed out of the water and tried again, only to sink into the water. Yet again he climbed out and yet again he tried, each time sinking into the water.

    This went on for some time as the other two monks watched. After a while, the second monk turned to the first and said, “Do you think we should tell him where the stones are?”

    Kia Ora,

    The perils of blind faith :

    A young monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to helping the other monks in copying the old canons and laws by hand.

    He notices, however, that all of the monks are copying from copies, not from the original manuscript.

    So, the new monk goes to the head abbot to question this, pointing out that if someone made even a small error in the first copy, it would never be picked up! In fact, that error would be continued in all of the subsequent copies.

    The head monk, says, “We have been copying from the copies for centuries, but you make a good point, my son.”

    He goes down into the dark caves underneath the monastery where the original manuscripts are held as archives in a locked vault that hasn’t been opened for hundreds of years. Hours go by and nobody sees the old abbot.

    So, the young monk gets worried and goes down to look for him. He sees him banging his head against the wall and wailing, “We missed the ‘R’! We missed the ‘R’!” His forehead is all bloody and bruised and he is crying uncontrollably.

    The young monk asks the old abbot, “What’s wrong, father?” With A choking voice, the old abbot replies, “The word was… CELEBRATE !!!”

    God has created all the working components which go towards making a man, but can't be arsed to stick them all together, so he gives the box to the angels and lets them do it.

    An hour or so later, they bring him the prototype.

    "Holy crap, what the hell is that -?! " He exclaims, pointing to the prototype's groin.

    "That's his.... Er, hang on... " (the angel checks the manual) ... "his 'scrotum' apparently... "

    " But... But... It's HUGE! Why is it so big??"

    "Well, you said it had to hold his balls, but you didn't specify the size..."

    "Well they certainly don't need to be the size of grapefruits! How would he ever go jogging...!? No, they need to be the size of walnuts, but they'll still do the job..."

    The angels haul the prototype away and come back half an hour later.

    "There you go Boss, how's that?"

    "Much better!" Exclaims God.

    "Only problem is....." continues the angel, "we've got all this crimpled weird ball-sack skin left over... What do you want us to do with it? "

    God thinks for a moment....
    Finally he says,

    "Oh, just slap it on the elbows - who'll notice?!"

    Narcolepsy isn't funny, but even so - who would not rather be asleep with that noise going on in the background - he's being tortured ffs. Putting young kids through something they didn't ask for, but are living up to their parents expectations is poor form. especially if it is a recording.

    Kia Ora,
    Point taken on narcolepsy...But making funny of narcolepsy was not my intention...I know of lots of meditators who do not suffer from narcolepsy but doze off during meditation...And call me wicked but I can't help but laugh when they start to snore --:D __

    However in regards to Thailand, I think it's to do with the parents who 'believe' that by having a son 'educated' at the local temple will accumulates merits for the whole family (and merits in Thai Buddhism are big bucks/business)

    I guess along similar lines, it's not much different from Western parents who force their children to go to church/Sunday school or they'll burn in hell....

    Metta Shoshin :)

  • anatamananataman Who needs a title? Where am I? Veteran

    Merit comes with what you do, not with what you put others through, especially your kin - that's plain laziness, and stinks of the attitude: If there is a God I'll do something to appease him, via my kids. Of course you can laugh - but will you laugh when someone takes a picture of you or your kid being 'slapped' and the video posted on social media - no - the line must be drawn somewhere.

    Meditation can be boring, if you fall asleep, it's the wrong time or you need to go to bed.

    My heart goes out to that kid, that's all.

    Don't disagree with your final point about Westerners, it's just that barely anyone I know with kids sends their children to church on a Sunday... I'd not do it to mine.

    A lesson to be learned from typing the wrong email address!!!!
    A Minneapolis couple decided to go to Florida to thaw out during
    a
    particularly icy winter. They planned to stay at the same hotel where
    they
    spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it
    was
    difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left
    Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday, with his wife flying down
    the
    following day. The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer
    in
    his room, so he decided to send an email to his wife. However, he
    accidentally left out one letter in her email address, and without
    realizing his error, sent the email.
    Meanwhile, somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home
    from
    her husband's funeral. He was a minister who was called home to glory
    following a heart attack. The widow decided to check her email
    expecting
    messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message,
    she
    screamed and fainted. The widow's son rushed into the room, found his
    mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:

    To: My Loving Wife
    Subject: I've Arrived
    Date: October 16, 2003
    I know you're surprised to hear from me. They have computers
    here
    now and you are allowed to send emails to your loved ones. I've just
    arrived and have been checked in. I've seen that everything has been
    prepared for your arrival tomorrow.
    Looking forward to seeing you then!!!!
    Hope your journey is as uneventful as mine was.
