A boss wondered why one of his most valued employees had not rung in sick one day.
Having an urgent problem with a main computer, he phoned the employee's home number and was greeted with a child's whisper ..."Hello?"
"Is your daddy home?" he asked.
"Yes" whispered the small voice.
"May I speak to him?"
The child whispered "No".
Surprised and wanting to talk to an adult, the boss asked "Is your mummy there?"
"Yes".
"Well may I speak to her, then?"
Again, the small voice whispered "No".
Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked..
.. "Is anybody else there?"
"Yes" whispered the child "a policeman".
Wondering what the police would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked..
"May I speak to the policeman?"
"No, he's busy" whispered the child.
"Busy doing what?"
"Talking to mummy and daddy and the fireman" came the whispered reply.
Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in the background coming down the phone, the boss asked "What's that noise?"
"A helicopter" answered the whispering voice.
"What's going on there?" demanded the boss, now really apprehensive.
Again, whispering, the child answered "The search team has just landed a helicopter".
Alarmed, concerned, and a little frustrated, the boss asked "What are they searching for?"
Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle...
... "ME!":):)

The above posted by Macmca on OAMAAM

We the proud few that have passed the test of all tests and earned the right to wear the GB.
Everyone gets the opportunity to attend the school of life, some get it and others don't.
We R.M's are a very small majority in this world but our history has left one hell of a mark on it.
Walk proud and remember those past and present.

Be safe one and all.

BBC News FB page has been challenged by many who appear to have misinterpreted both the title and the strap line of a recent thread. :)

Quite possibly the most absurd news story of the year. Could you imagine this even 5 years ago!?

Couldn't believe it at first. Witch hunted and having your income taken away because you might be seeing a republican?

It's like the Mccarthy days...

Via Shiner at OAMAAM.....


A motor mechanic was removing a cylinder head from the motor of a BMW M3 when he spotted a well-known cardiologist in his shop.

The cardiologist was there waiting for the service manager to come and take a look at his car when the mechanic shouted across the garage,

"Hey Doc, want to take a look at this?" The cardiologist, a bit surprised walked over to where the mechanic was working on the BMW.

The mechanic straightened up, wiped his hands on a rag and asked,

"So Doc, look at this engine. I opened its heart, took the valves out, repaired or replaced anything damaged and then put everything back in, and when I finished, it worked just like new.

So how is that I make £30,000 a year, and you make £1.5m when you and I are doing basically the same work?"

The cardiologist paused, leaned over, and then whispered to the mechanic....

"Try doing it with the engine running."
