Bad day?

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Microbass, Feb 7, 2003.


  1. Having a Bad Day? Apparently these incidents have really happened.....

    There was a case in one hospital's Intensive Care ward where patients
    always died in the same bed, on Sunday morning, at about 11
    A.M.,regardless of their medical condition. This puzzled the doctors and
    some even thought that it had something to do with the supernatural. No
    one could solve the mystery as to why the deaths occurred around 11
    A.M.on Sundays.
    So a Worldwide team of experts was assembled to investigate the cause of
    the incidents. The next Sunday morning, a few minutes before 11 A.M.,all
    doctors and nurses nervously wait outside the ward to see for themselves
    what the terrible phenomenon was all about. Some were holding wooden
    crosses, prayer books and other holy objects to ward off the evil
    spirits.
    Just when the clock struck 11:00... Pookie Johnson, The part-time Sunday
    sweeper, entered the ward and unplugged the life support system so that
    he could use the vacuum cleaner.

    Still Having a Bad Day?

    The average cost of rehabilitating a seal after the Exxon Valdez oil
    spill in Alaskawas $80,000. At a special ceremony, two of the most
    expensively saved animals were being released back into the wild amid
    cheers and applause from onlookers. A minute later, in full view, a
    killer whale ate them both.

    Still think you are having a bad day?

    A woman came home to find her husband in the kitchen shaking
    frantically, almost in a dancing frenzy, with some kind of wire running
    from his waist towards the electric kettle. Intending to jolt him away
    from the deadly current, she whacked him with a handy plank of wood,
    breaking his arm in two places. Up to that moment, he had been happily
    listening to his Sony Walkman.

    STILL think you're having a bad day?

    Two animal rights protesters were protesting the cruelty of sending pigs
    to a slaughterhouse in Bonn, Germany. Suddenly, all two thousand pigs
    broke loose and escaped through a broken fence, stampeding madly. The
    two hopeless protesters were trampled to death.

    What?! STILL having a bad day?

    Iraqi terrorist Khay Rahnajet didn't pay enough postage on a letter
    bomb. It came back with "return to sender" stamped on it. Forgetting it
    was the bomb, he opened it and was blown to bits.

    There now, feeling better?


    :cool:

    Yeah, the terrorist one and the life support machines one, I have to admit, did have me chuckling. If I'd been at home, not at work, I would have been laughing out loud. And possibly rolling on the floor.

    I doubt any of those would pass the Snopes test, but they're funny...
