Mothers-In-Law, Pls Excuse

A real meanie: funny-jokes-viral-on-internet-and-social-media-5 jokes-15.07.18-7-1

To assess how much her sons-in-law love her,

one day a mother-in-law jumped into a river.

One of the three sons-in-law jumped in right away and rescued her.

She rewarded him with a car.

On the following day, she jumped again into the river.

The second son-in-law jumped in this time and brought her back safe.

He got a bike for his rescue act.

On the third day the lady jumped once again into the river.

The third son-in-law, thinking he would get a cycle, did not move an inch.

The poor lady was drowned.

On the fourth day, however, he was surprised to receive a brand new BMW.

Pretty wierd, how did he…

The benefactor turned out to be his father-in-law!!

“Just do it” training

After months of searching, Dewey found a job in electrical engineering.

Dewey traveled to various locales to analyze and fix problems with his company’s equipment. Yet it frustrated him that his employer gave him little training.

One day Dewey heard about some training classes coming up and asked his boss if he might attend.

“For sure,” his boss said. “I was already planning on sending you.”

“You were?”

“Oh yes, who do you think is going to be teaching it?”

Now for the dark humor:

From Gautham Iyengar to Friends For us

Three friends, an Indian, a British and a Saudi Arabian were having dinner together.

British: ‘Why India is called Incredible India?’

Indian: ‘I can explain…. What you would do if one newly made over bridge breaks down crushing people under it ….’

British: ‘Well, the irresponsible engineer and the official involved would be jailed for the rest of their lives, for sure.’

Saudi Arabian: ‘The engineer and the official would be shot three times in the head and hanged in public.’

Indian: ‘We have a very different method here… We take the injured to the Hospital and then we beat up the doctor if anyone doesn’t recover…’

British: ‘Oh, that’s incredible!!!’
