When a group of tourists visited a crocodile farm, the owner of the place launched a daring proposal, "Whoever dares to jump, swim to shore and survive, I will give $1 million dollars."

Nobody dared to move, suddenly a man jumped into the water and desperately swam towards the shore while he was chased by all the crocodiles.

With great luck he arrived, taking the admiration of everyone in the place, then the owner announced; "We have a brave winner."

After collecting their reward, the couple returned to the hotel.
Upon arrival, the manager told him that he was very brave to jump, then the man said, "I didn't jump, someone pushed me!"

His wife smiled ...

Moral: "Behind every successful man, there is a woman who pushes him."

Fiona from Henderson

A Swiss guy visited Sydney, Australia, and pulled up at a bus stop where two locals were waiting.

"Entschuldigung, koennen Sie Deutsch sprechen?" he asked.

The two Aussies just stared at him.

"Excusez-moi, parlez vous Francais?" he tried.

"Entschuldigung, koennen Sie Deutsch sprechen?" he asked.

The two Aussies just stared at him.

"Excusez-moi, parlez vous Francais?" he tried.

The two continued to stare.

"Parlare Italiano?"

Other than a glance at each other, there was still no response.

"Hablan ustedes Espanol?"

Still nothing.

The Swiss guy gave up and drove off, extremely disgusted.
When he was gone, the first Aussie turned to the second and said, "Y'know, maybe we should learn a foreign language."

"Why?" the other replied. "That guy knew four languages, and it didn't do him any good."

A similar initiative was launched in Australia at the start of the month, and buses became known as “Jabba the Bus”.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern has challenged the public to come up with a better name, but has ruled out “Busey McBusface”.

SHORT SHARP LOCKDOWN

Linda from Henderson

When Delta first showed up in NZ the Govt's words were. "Short, sharp lockdown"
I do not consider 5 weeks in level 4, and probably at least another 2 in useless level 3 as being a short sharp lockdown.
Nearly 2 months out of people's lives.

A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind her.
One of the bags was ripped, and every once in a while, a $20 note fell out onto the footpath.

Noticing this, a Policeman stopped her, and said “Excuse me Ma’am, there are $20 notes falling out of that bag”

“Damn” says the little old lady, “I’d better go back and see if I can find them and pick them up”

“Not so fast” says the cop, “How did you get all that money? Did you steal it?”

“Oh, no” replied the little old lady, “You see, my back yard backs up to the local sports stadium and each time there is a game, a lot of fans come by come and pee through a knot hole in my fence, right into my flower garden.
It used to really tick me off, kills the flowers you know. Then I thought, ‘why not make the best of it?’
So, now, I stand behind the fence by the knot hole, real quiet, with my hedge clippers. Every time some guy sticks his thing through my fence, I surprise him, grab hold of it and say, ‘OK buddy! Give me $20, or off it comes.’

“Well, that seems only fair,” said the cop, laughing. “OK, Good luck! Oh, by the way, what’s in the other bag?”

"Well, you know", said the little old lady, "not everybody pays."

A man was stopped by a fishery officer recently with two chilly bins full of live fish in water, leaving a river well known for its fishing.

The fishery officer asked the man, "Do you have a license to catch those fish?"

"Nah, my friend, I ain't got no license. These here are my pet fish."

"Pet fish?"

"Yep. Every night I take these fish down to the river and let 'em swim round for a while. Then I whistle and they jump right back into this chilly in and I take 'em home."

"That's a bunch of rubbish! Fish can't do that!"

The man looked at the fishery officer for a moment and then said, "It's the truth. I'll show you. It really works."

"Okay, I've GOT to see this!"

The man poured the fish into the river and stood and waited. After several minutes, the fishery officer turned to him and said, "Well?"

"Well, what?" said the man.

"When are you going to call them back?"
"Call who back?"

"The FISH!"

"What fish?"
