A woman sat in the reception room of a new dentist awaiting her first appointment. She noticed the dental diploma bore the dentist’s full name and suddenly she remembered a tall, handsome, dark-haired boy with the same name who had been in her high school senior class some 30-odd years ago. She wondered if they could be the same person.
Upon meeting the dentist she discarded the thought. The balding, grey-haired man with the deeply lined face was far too old to have been the boy she’d secretly had a crush on.
After having her teeth examined, curiosity got the better of her and she asked the dentist if he’d ever attended her old school.
When he replied, quite excitedly that he had, she asked what year he’d left. He gave her his answer and asked why she asked.
“You were in my class,” she exclaimed.
The dentist looked closely at her, then . . . the ugly, old, bald, wrinkled, fat-arsed, grey haired, decrepit bastard asked . . .
“What did you teach?”

Everything I need to know about life, I learned from Noah’s Ark… (Author Unknown)
One: Don’t miss the boat.
Two: Remember that we are all in the same boat.
Three: Plan ahead. It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark.
Four: Stay fit. When you’re 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
Five: Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
Six: Build your future on high ground.
Seven: For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.
Eight: Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
Nine: When you’re stressed, float a while.
Ten: Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.
Budget air travel…
One day at a busy airport, the passengers on a commercial airliner are seated, waiting for the cockpit crew to show up so they can get under way. The pilot and co-pilot finally appear in the rear of the plane, and begin walking up to the cockpit through the centre aisle. Both appear to be blind.
The pilot is using a white cane, bumping into passengers right and left as he stumbles down the aisle, and the co-pilot is using a guide dog. Both have their eyes covered with huge sunglasses. At first the passengers don’t react, thinking that it must be some sort of practical joke. However, after a few minutes the engines start revving and the airplane starts moving.
The passengers look at each other with some uneasiness, whispering among themselves and looking desperately to the stewardesses for reassurance. Then the airplane starts accelerating rapidly down the runway and people begin panicking. Some passengers are praying, and as the plane gets closer and closer to the end of the runway, the voices are becoming more and more hysterical. Finally, when the airplane has less than 20 feet of runway left, there is a sudden change in the pitch of the shouts as everyone screams at once, and at the very last moment the airplane lifts off and is airborne.
Up in the cockpit, the co-pilot breathes a sigh of relief and turns to the pilot: “You know, one of these days the passengers aren’t going to scream, and we’re gonna get killed!”
