Red face Barely Amusing

I'm a fair way through an extremely large pile of evening-class applications which I'm inputting onto the system here (that's my job until I go back to Uni) and it's really beginning to drag. The slightest thing is causing amusement.

For example, I just put a Michael J Fox onto the system (he's doing basic computing for anyone vaguely interested) and one poor kid last week had a parent called Paul Daniels.

Still not quite as amusing as the Presentation for the Young Peoples' University a while back. The kids were going up on stage, collecting a certificate and having their name read out... one group started going up... "Fred Bloggs, Joe Smith... Dale Winton!"

All the staff burst out laughing. Poor kid. Imagine the stick he gets at school... how could you call your son Dale Winton?

It's sad what amuses you when you have a boring job.

I came across one entry Dave (who was working with me until last Friday) had put in... this one guy kept coming in the Registry with questions and was just generally irritating. I looked at his medical details and it said...

"Annoying"

A very camp gameshow host. Started off his career on Supermarket Sweep which was a big hit with students.

Something properly amusing:

This is a genuine e-mail
from the main receptionist for Sun Microsystems at Corporate, and went out to all corporate employees.

To: All Corporate Employees
Subject: Copier!
Date: Thursday, July 24, 1997 12:48PM
PLEASE PLEASE please please please-I am begging here-keep any and all paper clips away from the copier! We have had two service calls in the last few days removing paper clips, staples and a binder clip from the innards of the copier.
PLEASE be really really really really careful around the copier.
Especially the document handler, which seems to suck clits like a vacuum cleaner.

Dickinson took the fake tan to a new level though, Winton never went that far.

Funko should use that one in the bar: 'I suck clits like a vacuum cleaner, baby.'

The e-mail note was obviously written on a PDA by a woman who was at the same time using the copy machine.

WWII. A frontline on the East. On one side, Germans, on the other, Russians. Both entrenched.
Suddendly the Russians hear someone shouting "Wania! Wania!".
"Szto*!?" - cries Wania and dies from a snipe shot.
A minute later they hear "Boris! Boris!"
"Szto*!?" - cries Boris and dies from a snipe shot.
The Russians are pissed off. "Alright, we'll play their own game."
"Claus, Claus!"
"Who's calling!?"
"Me!" - cries Yuri and dies from a snipe shot.

*'What' in Russian, in case you don't know.

I think the women in the office will have mixed feelings about that machine now.

There used to be a kid called Ben Dover at my old school, which was really, really unfortunate in presentations

Bart Simpson made Ben Dover famous.
