Itshokeng Funerals – the name of a funeral parlour in SA.
and I did not even get flowers, but I did get a good giggle.
My sister sent me this number 0861 300 600 and told me to phone it for a laugh.
I did, thinking it was one of those joke lines. It’s not, it’s actually NetFlorist customer call line, but the greeting is hysterical. (I checked there website to confirm it is their number).
I wonder how many calls they get of people just calling the number. And how many will actually order flowers because of it. I am tempted, just so that I can legitimally phone again.
MY LIVING WILL
Last night, my husband and I were sitting in the living room, and I said to him, ‘I never want to live in a vegetative state, dependent on some machine and fluids from a bottle. If that ever happens, just pull the plug.’
He got up, unplugged the computer, and threw out my wine.
I received this via email this morning and could not help but laugh!
Here is the joke that I received in mail the other day. I thought it very funny – and to me it makes a lot more sense that that other story that has been going around for years…….
EVE’S SIDE OF THE STORY
After three weeks in the Garden of Eden, God came to visit Eve. “So, how is everything going?” inquired God.
“It is all so beautiful, God,” she replied. “The sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking, the smells, the sights, everything is wonderful, but I have just one problem.
It’s these breasts you have given me. The middle one pushes the other two out and I am constantly knocking them with my arms, catching them on branches and snagging them on bushes. They’re a real pain.”
And Eve went on to tell God that since many other parts of her body came in pairs, such as her limbs, eyes, ears, etc. She felt that having only two breasts might leave her body more “symmetrically balanced”.
“That’s a fair point,” replied God, “But it was my first shot at this, you know. I gave the animals six breasts, so I figured that you needed only half of those, but I see that you are right. I will fix it up right away.”
And God reached down, removed the middle breast and tossed it into the bushes
Three weeks passed and God once again visited Eve in the Garden of Eden.
” Well, Eve, how is my favorite creation?”
“Just fantastic,” she replied, “But for one oversight. You see, all the animals are paired off. The ewe has a ram and the cow has her bull. All the animals have a mate except me. I feel so alone.”
God thought for a moment and said, “You know, Eve, you are right. How could I have overlooked this? You do need a mate and I will immediately create a man from a part of you. Let’s see….where did I put that useless tit?”
Now doesn’t THAT make more sense than all that crap about the rib?
I got this on email today and it made me smile.

Ok, so I can’t even attempt to deny it any more. I am a serious fan!!
This time it is an advert so probably has more to do with the Vodacom advertising agency but I think it is brilliant! I enjoyed the first Player 23 advert, but find this one more entertaining.
Probably only appeals to your South African audience, but hey, they have their target market pegged. Well, kind off. I am not (much of) a rugby supporter but at the moment Robbie can do no wrong!
So enjoy – the latest Vodacom Player 23 advert with Robbie Wessels
I thought I had better write another post today, so that the first thing people saw was not me moaning!
Last night it was very hot, I don’t have a problem with that, Mr OL on the other had does. He can’t sleep when it is hot so last night he was tossing and turning. He just had a sheet over him and with all the rolling over his feet must have been wriggling underneath. The cat in all his innocence (uhmm right) must have thought this was a game because the next thing I hear is a loud screech (Mr OL) and then a thump followed another loud screech (the cat Bacardi) followed by loud meouwing and running down the passage (also the cat).
Bacardi had pounced on Mr OL’s foot, claws out. Mr OL screeched and threw a shoe at the cat, just missing. The cat then started back chatting! He he! I was trying to stifle the laughter. Luckily through all the swearing I don’t’ think it was heard.
Mr OL was still muttering about the damn cat this morning when we got up.
Although who could stay mad at a face like this for very long???
