"How come you're late?" asks the bartender as the blonde waitress walks in the door.

"It was awful," she explains. "I was walking down Elm street and there was this terrible accident. A man was lying in the middle of the street.
He was thrown from his car. His leg was broken, his skull was fractured, and there was blood everywhere.
Thank goodness I took that first aid course, all my training came back to me in a flash."

"What did you do?" asks the bartender.

"I sat down and put my head between my knees to keep from fainting!"

Friday's funny: 😀🐀A Rat in a Bar🐀😀

Fiona from Henderson

A man walks into a bar and asks the bartender, "If I show you a really good trick, will you give me a free drink?"

The bartender considers it, then agrees.

The man reaches into his pocket and pulls out a tiny rat.

He reaches into his other pocket and pulls out a tiny piano.

A man walks into a bar and asks the bartender, "If I show you a really good trick, will you give me a free drink?"

The bartender considers it, then agrees.

The man reaches into his pocket and pulls out a tiny rat.

He reaches into his other pocket and pulls out a tiny piano.

The rat stretches, cracks his knuckles, and proceeds to play the blues.

After the man finished his drink, he asked the bartender, "If I show you an even better trick, will you give me free drinks for the rest of the night, the bartender thinks that nothing could possibly top the first trick so he agrees.

The man reaches into another pocket and pulls out a small bullfrog, who begins to sing along with the rat's music.

While the man is enjoying his beverages, a stranger confronts him and offers him $100,000.00 for the bullfrog.

"Sorry," the man replies, "he's not for sale."

The stranger increases the offer to $250,000.00 cash up front.

"No," he insists, "he's not for sale."

The stranger again increases the offer, this time to $500,000.00 cash.

The man finally agrees, and turns the frog over to the stranger in exchange for the money.

"Are you insane?" the bartender demanded.

"That frog could have been worth millions to you, and you let him go for a mere $500,000!"

"Don't worry about it." the man answered. "The frog was really nothing special. You see, the rat's a ventriloquist."

Vaccinations and Underlying conditions

Avinesh from Ranui

Firstly let's do our part and stay home, stay safe and get vaccinated IF and WHEN you can.

I say IF, because there are some of us in the community that have certain underlying conditions that possibly could suffer a potential relapse from the vaccine. Now, I am not saying I am an expert or have the abundance of knowledge as the experts, however if you have an underlying condition that could potentially affect your health post vaccine, please do consult your specialist. I only say it based on personal experience where I suffer from nephrotic syndrome, have been in remission and off medication for past 5 years. Had my first jab back in July and in 8 days suffered a relapse to the higher end of the condition. Upon some research, obviously overseas based especially in the UK and States, it is found that the pfizer could cause relapses of nephrotic syndrome. So, if you have kidney conditions do speak to your specialist. I could be a special case, but who knows maybe this information could help you from not going back to square one in your journey to recovery. Stay safe

An elderly lady was stopped and about to pull into a parking space when a young man in his new red Mercedes went around her and parked in the space she was waiting for.

The little old lady was so upset that she went up to the man and said, "I was going to park there!"

The man said, "That's what you can do when you're young and quick.”

This really upset the lady even more, so she got in her car and backed it up and then she stomped on the gas and plowed right into his Mercedes.

The young man ran back to his car and asked, "What did you do that for?"

The little old lady smiled and told him, "That's what you can do when you're old and rich!"
