Voted Best Joke in Canada
(according to a research study at the University of Hertfordshire...
see previous post.)
When NASA first started sending up astronauts, they quickly discovered
that ballpoint pens would not work in zero gravity. To combat the
problem, NASA scientists spent a decade and $12 billion to develop
a pen that writes in zero gravity, upside down, underwater, on almost
any surface including glass and at temperatures ranging from
below freezing to 300°C.
The Russians used a pencil.
Voted Best Joke in the U. K.
A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The bus driver says,
"That's the ugliest baby that I've ever seen. Ugh!"
The woman goes to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming.
She says to a man next to her, "The driver just insulted me!"
The man says, "You go right up there and tell him off –
go ahead, I'll hold your monkey for you."
