Garden Party

Things we learn from movies

1. If being chased through town, you can usually take cover in a passing St Patrick’s Day parade – at any time of the year.
2. All beds have special L-shaped top sheets that reach up to armpit level on a woman but only waist level on the man lying beside her.
3. All grocery shopping bags contain at least one stick of French bread.
4. Once applied, lipstick will never rub off – even while scuba diving.
5. The ventilation system of any building is a perfect hiding place. No one will ever think of looking for you in there and you can travel to any other part of the building without difficulty.
6. Should you wish to pass yourself off as a German officer, it will not be necessary to speak the language. A German accent will do.
7. The Eiffel Tower can be seen from any window of any building in Paris.
8. A man will show no pain while taking the most ferocious beating but will wince when a woman tries to clean his wounds.
9. When paying for a taxi, never look at your wallet as you take out a note – just grab one at random and hand it over. It will always be the exact fare.
10. If you lose a hand, it will cause the stump of your arm to grow by 15cm.


A priest, a rabbi and a pastor from the local churches are standing by the road, pounding a sign into the ground, that reads: “The End is Near! Turn Yourself Around Now Before it’s Too Late!” As a car sped past them, the driver yelled, “Leave us alone, you religious nuts!” From around the curve they heard screeching tires and a big splash. The pastor turns to the other two and asks, “Do you think the sign should just say: ‘Bridge Out’?”

  1. Hey Lester ... you might want to re-size the cartoons from the Sunday Comics as the final panel(s) are impossible to read under the ads on the right of the blog. Just an FYI ... but maybe it's just my computer and screen. :)

  2. Thanks. I previewed it before I posted it and it was fine. Don't know why it went crazy. Thanx for letting me know
