    This is Gold - don't you just love the way these type of projects usually have a better solution

    A toothpaste factory had a problem: they sometimes shipped empty boxes, without the tube inside. This was due to the way the production line was set up, and people with experience in designing production lines will tell you how difficult it is to have everything happen with timings so precise that every single unit coming out of it is perfect 100% of the time. Small variations in the environment (which can’t be controlled in a cost-effective fashion) mean you must have quality assurance checks smartly distributed across the line so that customers all the way down the supermarket don’t get pissed off and buy someone else’s product instead.
    Understanding how important that was, the CEO of the toothpaste factory got the top people in the company together and they decided to start a new project, in which they would hire an external engineering company to solve their empty boxes problem, as their engineering department was already too stretched to take on any extra effort.
    The project followed the usual process: budget and project sponsor allocated, RFP, third-parties selected, and six months (and $8 million) later they had a fantastic solution — on time, on budget, high quality and everyone in the project had a great time. They solved the problem by using some high-tech precision scales that would sound a bell and flash lights whenever a toothpaste box weighed less than it should. The line would stop, and someone had to walk over and yank the defective box out of it, pressing another button when done.
    A while later, the CEO decides to have a look at the ROI of the project: amazing results! No empty boxes ever shipped out of the factory after the scales were put in place. Very few customer complaints, and they were gaining market share. “That’s some money well spent!” – he says, before looking closely at the other statistics in the report.
    It turns out, the number of defects picked up by the scales was 0 after three weeks of production use. It should’ve been picking up at least a dozen a day, so maybe there was something wrong with the report. He filed a bug against it, and after some investigation, the engineers come back saying the report was actually correct. The scales really weren’t picking up any defects, because all boxes that got to that point in the conveyor belt were good.
    Puzzled, the CEO travels down to the factory, and walks up to the part of the line where the precision scales were installed. A few feet before it, there was a $20 desk fan, blowing the empty boxes out of the belt and into a bin. “Oh, that — one of the guys put it there ’cause he was tired of walking over every time the bell rang”, says one of the workers.

    Two woman talking in heaven1st Woman:
    Hello! My name is Maggie.
    2nd Woman: Hello! I'm
    Sylvia. How did you die?
    1st Woman: I froze to death.
    2nd Woman: How awful!
    1st Woman: It wasn't so bad. After I stopped
    shaking from the cold, I began
    to get warm and sleepy and finally died a peaceful
    death. What about you?
    2nd Woman: I died of a massive heart attack. I
    suspected my husband was
    cheating, so I came home early to catch him in the
    act. But instead I found
    him all by himself in the house watching TV.
    1st Woman: So what happened?
    2nd Woman: I was so sure there was another woman
    somewhere that I started running all over the house
    looking. I ran up into
    the attic and searched and then down into the
    cellar. I went through each
    wardrobe and checked under all the beds. I kept this
    up until I had looked
    everywhere, and finally I became so exhausted that I
    just keeled over with a
    heart attack and died.
    1st Woman: Too bad you didn't look in the freezer.
    We'd both still be

    A lady goes to her priest one day and tells him,???'Father, I have a problem.I have two female parrots,
    But they only know how to say one thing.'???
    'What do they say?' the priest inquired.?
    They say,???
    'Hi, we're hookers!?
    Do you want to have some fun?'???
    That's obscene!' the priest exclaimed,???
    Then he thought for a moment.
    'You know,' he said,?
    'I may have a solution to your problem.???
    I have two male talking parrots,???
    Which I have taught to pray and read the Bible.???
    Bring your two parrots over to my house,???
    And we'll put them in the cage with Francis and Peter.???
    My parrots can teach your parrots to praise and worship,???
    And your parrots are sure to stop saying . . .???
    That phrase . . In no time.'???
    Thank you,' the woman responded,?
    'this may very well be the solution.'
    The next day,???
    She brought her female parrots to the priest's house.???
    As he ushered her in,?
    She saw that his two male parrots
    Were inside their cage holding rosary beads and praying.???
    She walked over and placed her parrots in with them.???
    After a few minutes,???
    The female parrots cried out in unison:???
    Hi, we're hookers!?
    Do you want to have some fun?'???
    There was stunned silence.???
    One male parrot looked over at the other male parrot?
    And exclaimed,???
    'Put the beads away, Frank.???

    King Arthur and the Witch

    Young King Arthur was ambushed and imprisoned by the monarch of a neighboring kingdom. The monarch could have killed him but was moved by Arthur's youth and ideals. So, the monarch offered him his freedom, as long as he could answer a very difficult question.

    Arthur would have a year to figure out the answer and, if after a year, he still had no answer, he would be put to death.

    The question?...What do women really want?

    Such a question would perplex even the most knowledgeable man, and to young Arthur, it seemed an impossible query. But, since it was better than death, he accepted the monarch's proposition to have an answer by year's end.

    He returned to his kingdom and began to poll everyone: the princess, the priests, the wise men and even the court jester. He spoke with everyone, but no one could give him a satisfactory answer.

    Many people advised him to consult the old witch, for only she would have the answer.

    But the price would be high; as the witch was famous throughout the kingdom for the exorbitant prices she charged.

    The last day of the year arrived and Arthur had no choice but to talk to the witch. She agreed to answer the question, but he would have to agree to her price first.

    The old witch wanted to marry Sir Lancelot, the most noble of the Knights of the Round Table and Arthur's closest friend!

    Young Arthur was horrified. She was hunchbacked and hideous, had only one tooth, smelled like sewage, made obscene noises, etc. He had never encountered such a repugnant creature in all his life.

    He refused to force his friend to marry her and endure such a terrible burden; but Lancelot, learning of the proposal, spoke with Arthur. He said nothing was too big of a sacrifice compared to Arthur's life and the preservation of the Round Table.

    Hence, a wedding was proclaimed and the witch answered Arthur's question thus:

    What a woman really wants, she to be in charge of her own life.

    Everyone in the kingdom instantly knew that the witch had uttered a great truth and that Arthur's life would be spared.

    And so it was, the neighboring monarch granted Arthur his freedom and Lancelot and the witch had a wonderful wedding.

    The honeymoon hour approached and Lancelot, steeling himself for a horrific experience, entered the bedroom. But, what a sight awaited him.

    The most beautiful woman he had ever seen lay before him on the bed. The astounded Lancelot asked what had happened

    The beauty replied that since he had been so kind to her when she appeared as a witch, she would henceforth, be her horrible deformed self only half the time and the beautiful maiden the other half.

    Which would he prefer? Beautiful during the day....or night?

    Lancelot pondered the predicament. During the day, a beautiful woman to show off to his friends, but at night, in the privacy of his castle, an old witch? Or, would he prefer having a hideous witch during the day, but by night, a beautiful woman for him to enjoy wondrous intimate moments?

    What would YOU do?

    What Lancelot chose is below.

    BUT....make YOUR choice before you scroll down below.


    Noble Lancelot said that he would allow HER to make the choice herself.

    Upon hearing this, she announced that she would be beautiful all the time because he had respected her enough to let her be in charge of her own life.

    Now....what is the moral to this story?

    The moral is.....

    If you don't let a woman have her own way....

    Shane and Phil were a couple of drinking buddies who worked as aircraft engineers in Melbourne, Australia.
    One day the airport was fogged in and they were stuck in the hangar with nothing to do.

    Phil said, 'Man, I wish we had something to drink!'

    Shane says, 'Me too. Y'know, I've heard you can drink jet fuel and get a buzz.

    You wanna try it?'

    So they pour themselves a couple of glasses of high octane booze and get completely smashed.

    The next morning Phil wakes up and is surprised at how good he feels.

    In fact he feels GREAT! NO hangover! NO bad side effects.


    Then the phone rings. It's Shane. Shane says, 'Hey, how do you feel this morning?'

    Phil says, 'I feel great, how about you?'
    Shane says, 'I feel great, too. You don't have a hangover?'

    Phil says, 'No that jet fuel is great stuff -- no hangover, nothing. We ought to do this more often..'

    ' Yeah, well there's just one thing.'

    'What's that?'

    'Have you farted yet?'


    'Well, DON'T - 'cause I'm in New Zealand

    A bear walks into a bar in Billings , Montana and sits down. He bangs on the bar with his paw and demands a beer.
    The bartender approaches and says,

    'We don't serve beer to bears in bars in Billings '

    The bear, becoming angry, demands again that he be served a beer.

    The bartender t ells him again, more forcefully,

    'We don't serve beer to belligerent bears in bars in Billings ....'

    The bear, very angry now, says,

    'If you don't serve me a beer, I'm going to eat that lady sitting at the end of the bar.'

    The bartender says,

    'Sorry, we don't serve beer to Belligerent, bully bears in bars in Billings'

    The bear goes to the end of the bar, and, as pr omised, eats the woman. He comes back to his seat and again demands a beer.

    The bartender states,

    'Sorry, but we especially don't serve beer to belligerent, bully bears in bars in Billings who are on drugs.'

    The bear looks at him quizzically and says,

    'I'm not on drugs.'

    (You're gonna love this...)

    The bartender says,
    'You are now.
    That was a "barbitchyouate"
