[se] Dagens vits

Direktörerna för ölmärkena Heineken, Budweiser, Carlsberg och Guinness är ute en eftermiddag och spelar golf. Efter 18 hål på Gleneagles samlas man vid hål 19 (baren i klubbhuset). Man hann knappt sätta sig förrän en snygg servitris uppenbarade sig, och frågade vad de ville dricka.

Carlsbergdirektören skulle ha "Carlsberg. Probably the best beer in the world". Heinekenkillen fnös och beställde det han ansåg vara världens bästa öl, nämligen Heineken. Killen från Budweiser smålog och sa på släpig Texasaccent "You guy's don't know shit. Give me the best selling beer in the United States, a Budweiser". Direktören för Guinness meddelade frankt att "I'll have a Coke". Chockade frågade dom andra varför han inte beställt en Guinness, varpå Guinnessdirektören snabbt svarade "Well, if you guys don't drink beer, neither will I".

[se] Bästa Aprilskämtet

SvD skriver att:

Dagens Nyheter avslöjar regeringens planer på att höja energiskatten i Skåne för att jämna ut orättvisan att de kan resa till Danmark och handla billigare alkohol. Nyktra skåningar ska kunna lämna in en intygan om att de är nykterister, men om de då påkomms med alkohol i kroppen får de böter för el-onykterhet eller i grova fall el-fylleri.

The Onion

While I was over in New York on holiday (I'll post photos soon) I discovered the Onion - a very amusing newspaper! I had heard about it before but never took the time to check it out. I find their humour quite intelligent and subtle, with a lot of irony. This article is a good example.

Women find this funny...

In the hospital the relatives gathered in the waiting room, where their
family member lay gravely ill.

Finally, the doctor came in looking tired and somber.

"I'm afraid I'm the bearer of bad news," he said as he surveyed the worried

"The only hope left for your loved one at this time is a brain transplant.

It's an experimental procedure, very risky but it is the only hope.

Insurance will cover the procedure, but you will have to pay for the brain

The family members sat silent as they absorbed the news. After a great
length of time, someone asked, "Well, how much does a brain cost?"

The doctor quickly responded, "$5,000 for a male brain, and $200 for a
female brain."

The moment turned awkward. Men in the room tried not to smile, avoiding eye
contact with the women, but some actually smirked.

A man unable to control his curiosity, blurted out the question everyone
wanted to ask,

"Why is the male brain so much more?"

The doctor smiled at the childish innocence and explained to the entire
group, "It's just standard pricing procedure. We have to mark down the price
of the female brains, because they've actually been used."
