  1. The End Is Near Sean is the vicar of a Protestant parish on the border of Northern Ireland and Republic of Ireland, and Patrick is the priest at the Roman Catholic Church across the road. One day they are seen together, erecting a sign which reads: "THE END IS NEAR. TURN YOURSELF AROUND NOW BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE." As a car speeds past them, the driver leans out his window and yells: "Leave people alone, your religious nutters. We don't need your lectures." From around the next curve they hear screeching tyres and a big splash. Shaking his head, Father Patrick says: "Dat's da terd one dis mornin'." "Yaa, Sean agrees, then adds: "Do ya tink maybe da sign should just say: "BRIDGE CLOSED"?
  2. Three guys die and go to heaven The first one goes up to St. Peter who says, "I have only one question before you enter heaven: were you faithful to your wife?" The guy answers, "Yes, I never even looked at another woman." St. Peter tells him: "See that Rolls Royce Sweptail over there? That's your car to drive while you're in heaven". The second guy gets the same question, and answers: "Once I strayed, but I confessed to my wife and she forgave me, and we worked it out." St. Peter tells him: "See that new Buick Luxury Car over there? That's your car to use in heaven". The third guy answers the same question: "I have to admit, I chased every bit of tail I could, and was with a lot of women." St. Peter says, "OK, but you were basically a good guy, so that old three-wheel Reliant Robin car over there is yours to use while You’re in heaven." The three guys go off on their separate ways. A few weeks later, #2 and #3 are driving along in the Buick when they see #1's Rolls Royce Sweptail parked outside of a bar. They stop and go into the bar, and find #1 with empty bottles all around him, slumped with his face in his hands on the counter. They come up to him and #2 says: "Bud, what could possibly be so bad - you're in heaven, you drive a Rolls Royce Sweptail, and everything is great!" He says: "I saw my wife today!" The other 2 reply, "That's great! So, what's the problem?" He answers: "She was riding a bicycle!"

    Talking Dog

    Talking Dog A young Southern boy goes off to college, but about 1/3 way through the first semester, he has foolishly squandered what money his parents had given him for school. Then he gets an idea. He calls his Redneck father. “Dad,” he says, “you won’t believe the wonders that modern education is coming up with! Why, they actually have a program here that will teach Fido how to talk!” “That’s absolutely amazing!” his father says. “How do I get him in that program?” “Just send him down here with $1000,” the boy says, “I’ll get him into the course.” So, his father sends the dog and the $1000. About 2/3 way through the semester, the money runs out. The boy calls his father again. “So, how’s Fido doing, son?” his father asks. “Awesome, dad, he’s talking up a storm,” he says, “but you just won’t believe this, they’ve had such good results with this program, that they’ve implemented a new one to teach the animals how to READ!” “READ!?” says his father, “No kidding! What do I have to do to get him in that program?” “Just send $2,500, I’ll get him in the class.” His father sends the money. The boy has a problem. At the end of the year, his father will find out that the dog can neither talk nor read. So, he shoots the dog. When he gets home, his father is all excited… “Where’s Fido? I just can’t wait to see him talk and read something!” “Dad,” the boy says, I have some grim news. This morning, when I got out of the shower, Fido was in the living room kicking back in the recliner, reading the morning paper, like he usually does. Then he turned to me and asked: “Is your daddy still cheating on your mama and messing’ around with that cute little redhead next door?” The father says, “where is that damn dog, I am going to SHOOT him”. “I shot the dog already, Dad! I sure did”

  7. Samsung Galaxy Fold: Broken screens delay launch Samsung has postponed the release of its folding smartphone, days after several early reviewers said the screens on their devices had broken. The company said it had delayed the launch of the Galaxy Fold to "fully evaluate the feedback and run further internal tests". In April, several early reviewers found the display on the Galaxy Fold broke after just a few days. Samsung has not said when the £1,800 ($1,980) device will go on sale. A new launch date will be announced in the "coming weeks". In a statement, Samsung said it suspected the damage experienced by some of the reviewers was caused by "impact on the top and bottom exposed areas of the hinge". It also said it found "substances" inside one of the review devices that may have affected its performance. Launch events due to take place in Hong Kong and Shanghai this week have also been postponed. The Galaxy Fold was due to be released in the United States on 26 April, and in the UK on 3 May. The South Korean tech giant has said it is investigating what went wrong with the broken review units. In some cases, reviewers had peeled off a layer of the screen's coating, mistaking it for a disposable screen protector. "We will also enhance the guidance on care and use of the display including the protective layer," Samsung said in a statement. The South Korean company has worked hard for the past two and a half years to win back consumer trust following its Galaxy Note 7 debacle. Millions of those devices had to be recalled due to reports of exploding batteries. Samsung previously said the Galaxy Fold had sold out on its website, but it declined to say how many phones had actually been sold. Chinese rivals Huawei and Xiaomi are also developing foldable smartphones, but neither company has announced a release date yet.
  8. Gorillas Perfect Their Selfie Style Two gorillas have been snapped apparently mimicking human behaviour, in a remarkable selfie with a park ranger who helped rescue them as babies. The photo, taken by a worker at Virunga National Park in the Democratic Republic of Congo, swiftly went viral after being shared on Facebook. "Another day at the office..." Mathieu Shamavu wrote alongside the image, which has been shared more than 20,000 times. Female gorillas Ndakazi and Ndeze appear to be naturals in front of the camera; one stands proudly in a power pose with her feet wide apart, while the other leans forward to make it into the shot. "Those gorilla gals are always acting cheeky so this was the perfect shot of their true personalities," Virunga National Park wrote on Instagram. "Also, it's no surprise to see these girls on their two feet either -- most primates are comfortable walking upright (bipedalism) for short bursts of time," it added. The park, which stretches along the northeast region of the country, is home to 22 primate species, including three great apes. It's estimated that 1,000 mountain gorillas inhabit the site. More than 600 rangers work to safeguard wildlife at the park, a 3,000-square-mile site that has frequently seen violence and outbreaks of conflict. Several rangers have been killed there, and two Britons were kidnapped on the site last year.

    How Dogs Are Like Men

    How Dogs Are Like Men Both take up too much space on the bed. Both have irrational fears about vacuum cleaning. Both mark their territory. Neither tells you what’s bothering them. The smaller ones tend to be more nervous. Both have an inordinate fascination with women’s crotches. Neither does the dishes. Both farts shamelessly. Neither of them notices when you get your hair cut. Both like dominance games. Both are suspicious of the postman. Neither understands what you see in cats.
  10. Divorced Barbie Doll One day a father gets out of work and on his way home he suddenly remembers that it's his daughter's birthday.

Why is the Divorced Barbie $265.95 and the others only $19.95?' The annoyed salesperson rolls her eyes, sighs and answers: 'Sir...Divorced Barbie comes with: Ken's Car, Ken's House, Ken's Boat, Ken's Furniture, Ken's Computer, one of Ken's Friends.'
  11. A Sad Obituary in Scotland A very popular man dies in Aberdeen and his old widow wishes to tell all his friends at once, so she goes to the Aberdeen Evening Gazette and says, 'I'd like tae place an obituary fur ma late husband ...' The man at the desk says, 'OK, how much money dae ye have?' The old woman replies, '£5' to which the man says, 'Ye won't get many words for that Mrs, but write something and we'll see if it's ok.' So, the old woman writes something and hands it over the counter. The man reads 'Peter Reid, fae Peterheid is deid.'
