Today's Brighton v Chelsea was a joke
A local business was looking for office help. They put a sign in the window, stating the following: "HELP WANTED. Must be able to type, must be good with a computer and must be bilingual. We are an Equal Opportunity Employer."
A short time afterwards, a dog trotted up to the window, saw the sign and went inside. He looked at the receptionist and wagged his tail, then walked over to the sign, looked at it and whined. Getting the idea, the receptionist got the office manager.
The office manager looked at the dog and was surprised, to say the least. However, the dog looked determined, so he lead him into the office. Inside, the dog jumped up on the chair and stared at the manager. The manager said, "I can't hire you. The sign says you have to be able to type." The dog jumped down, went to the typewriter and proceeded to type out a perfect letter. He took out the page and trotted over to the manager and gave it to him, then jumped back on the chair. The manager was stunned, but then told the dog, "The sign says you have to be good with a computer."
The dog jumped down again and went to the computer. The dog proceeded to demonstrate his expertise with various programs and produced a sample spreadsheet and database and presented them to the manager.
By this time the manager was totally dumb-founded! He looked at the dog and said, "I realize that you are a very intelligent dog and have some interesting abilities. However, I *still* can't give you the job." The dog jumped down and went to a copy of the sign and put his paw on the sentences that told about being an Equal Opportunity Employer. The manager said, "Yes, but the sign *also* says that you have to be bilingual".
The dog looked at him straight in the face and said, "Meow."

A chap was in the pub enjoying a pint, and went to the vending machine to buy some cigarettes.
As he put his coins in, the cigarette machine said:
'Look at the state of you. That shirt is hideous, your haircut is terrible, and those shoes make you look like a clown.'
Stunned, the man presses the reject button and gets his money back.
He goes back to the bar, mulling over what happened, and takes a handful of peanuts from the bowl on the bar.
The bowl pipes up:
'Hey! Lookin' good! Is that a new shirt? And I really like that aftershave!'
He attracts the attention of the barman and says:
'Something odd is going on. I went to the cigarette machine and it was really rude to me, and then I had some peanuts and they made some rather flattering comments.'
The barman replies:
'Ah yes. The peanuts are complimentary but the cigarette machine is out of order.'

In a train from London to Manchester, a tourist was berating the Englishman sitting across from him . “The trouble with you English is that you are too stuffy. You set yourselves apart too much. You think your stiff upper lip makes you above the rest of us. Look at me ... I’m me! I have a little Italian in me, a bit of Greek blood, a little Irish and some Spanish blood. What do you say to that?”
The Englishman lowered his newspaper, looks over his glasses and replied “How very sporting of your mother!”

A biology teacher is discussing yesterday's homework with his class, and asked Susan, "Which part of the human body can expand by up to 10 times its normal size when stimulated"?
Susan blushed, fidgeting at her desk, and replied, "Sorry teacher, I'd rather not answer that".
Turning to the rest of the class, the teacher asked again, and John replied, "The pupil of the eye".
After confirming that was the correct answer, the teacher turns back to Susan to make three points;
