    “Pigs flying is an example of swine flew.”






    A couple was delighted when finally their long wait to

    adopt a baby came to an end.                                           


     The adoption center called and told them they had a   

    wonderful Japanese baby boy, and the couple took    

    him without hesitation.                                                      


    On the way home from the adoption center, they         

     stopped by the local college so they each could enroll

    in night courses.                                                                 


                                                             After they filled out the form, the registration clerk                                                             

    inquired, "What ever possessed you to study               



    The couple said proudly, "We just adopted a                

    Japanese baby and in a year or so he'll start to talk. 

    We just want to be able to understand him".               







    The Conductor


    A little old lady is on a bus, buying a ticket from the bus conductor, fumbling in a voluminous bag for the correct change. After 15 minutes the conductor becomes so enraged that he hits her on the head with the ticket-dispenser, and the poor old dear dies instantly. Not surprisingly, he is convicted and put on death row.


    Just before he is to be electrocuted, his last request is for 12 pounds of bananas, which he devours.


    They strap him into the chair, flip the switch, and he just sits there, smiling. According to tradition, this is considered a reprieve from God and he is freed.


    Somehow he gets his old job back, and he is happily dispensing tickets when he sees a girl stick her gum on the back of a seat on the bus. Enraged, he lunges out with the ticket dispenser, breaking the offender's neck and killing her.


    Again, he is convicted and sent to death row. He again eats the 12 pounds of bananas, and lo and behold, the electricity does not harm him.


    This time the executioner cleans the contacts, makes him sit in a bucket of water, he tries everything but the conductor won't die. So again, he is set free.


    Amazingly he regains his job. It takes him 1 day to lose his temper and beat to death a young boy who starts to chew his bus ticket. He returns to death row, eats the bananas, and survives the electrocution.


    At this point, the executioner can take no more, his professional pride has been hurt. Before setting our friend free again, he asks him his secret, “what is it with the bananas?”


    “Oh, the bananas have nothing to do with it,” replies the man. “I'm just a bad conductor.”

    The string goes back to his table. He ties himself in a

    A small tourist hotel was all a buzz about an                 

    afternoon wedding where the groom was 95 and the   

    bride was 23. The groom looked pretty feeble and the

    feeling was that the wedding night might kill him,        

    because his bride was a healthy, vivacious young        



    But lo and behold, the next morning, the bride came   

    down the main staircase slowly, step by step,              

    hanging onto the banister for dear life.                         


    She finally managed to get to the counter of the little

    shop in the hotel.                                                               


    The clerk looked really concerned, "Whatever             

    happened to you, madam? You look like you've been

    wrestling an alligator!"                                                     


    The bride groaned, hung on to the counter and          

    managed to speak, "Ohhh God! He told me he'd         

       been saving up for 75 years ... I thought he meant his






    One day a camel and an elephant met.                           

    The elephant asked the camel "Why do you have         

    your breasts on your back?"                                              

    The camel clearly irritated by the outrage of modesty

     replied "What a stupid question from someone who    

    has a dick on his face"                                                       




    There were three Women stranded on an island, a        

    brunette, a redhead, and a blonde.                                   

    The brunette looked over the water to the mainland    

    and estimated that it was about 20 miles to shore. So

    she announced, "I'm going to try to swim to shore."     

    She swam out five miles, and got really tired. She      

      swam out ten miles from the island, and was too tired

    to go on, so she drowned.                                                

    The redhead, said to herself, "I wonder if she made  

       it." I guess it's better to try to get to the mainland than

    stay here and starve."                                                      

    She attempts to swim out. The redhead had a lot     

       more endurance than the brunette. She swam out 10

    miles before she even got tired.                                  

    After 15 miles, she was too tired to go on, so she   


    The blonde thought to herself, "I wonder if they m 

    it!" "I think I'd better try to make it, too."                    

    She swam out 5 miles, ten miles, 15 miles,            

    NINETEEN miles from the island.                             

    The shore was just in sight, but she said, "I'm too 

    tired to go on!" So she swam back.

    A small boy is sent to bed by his father. Five minutes

    A traveler was stumbling through the desert,                 

    desperate for water, when he saw something far off in

    the distance.                                                                          


    Hoping to find water, he walked towards the image,      

    only to find a little old peddler sitting at a card table     

    with a bunch of neckties laid out.                                     


    The parched wanderer asked, "Please, I'm dying of      

    thirst, can I have some water?"                                         


    The man replied, "I don't have any water, but why         

    don't you buy a tie? Here's one that goes nicely with   

    your clothes."                                                                       


    The desperate man shouted, "I don't want a tie, you

    "OK, don't buy a tie. But to show you what a nice guy

    miles, is a nice restaurant. Walk that way, and they'll 

    give you all the water you want."                                     


    The man thanked the peddler and walked away          

    towards the hill and eventually disappeared out of    

    sight. Three hours later he returned.

      On the second, the key to the solution for me was “square of three”, and yes, I was a math major/nerd.

    I was just finishing with the ' Did you know? ' section  When I got a flashing security warning which froze everything. It said to call Microsoft at the number indicated. Screw that, I restarted the computer (lost the update). Somehow my internet security was turned off??????????????, I turned it back on.

    I got a new pair of gloves today, but

    they're both 'lefts'                                


    Which, on the one hand is great,      

    but on the other it's just not right    




    The key

    All the good knights were leaving for the Crusades.    

    One knight told his best friend "My bride is without     

    doubt one of the most beautiful women in the world. 

    It would be a terrible waste if no man could have her.

    Therefore, as my best and most trusted friend, I am  

    leaving you the key to her chastity belt to use should

    I not return from the Crusade in seven years."              


    The company of knights were only a mile or so out of

    town when they noticed a cloud of dust approaching.

    Thinking it might be an important message from the 

    town the column halted. A horseman approached. It  

    was the knight's best friend. He said "Hey, you gave   

    me the wrong key!!"                                                            





    An eagle swoops down from the sky and eats a         

    mouse. Three hours later, while the eagle is flying,   

    the mouse sticks its head out of the eagles butt and

    asks, How high up are we?                                             

    About 2,000 feet, the eagle replies.                             

    The mouse replies, You aint sh*ttin me, are you?     





    A simple misunderstanding


    There is a factory in New Zealand which makes the Tickle Me Elmo toys. The toy laughs when you tickle it under the arm.


    A new employee is hired at the Tickle Me Elmo factory and she reports for her first day promptly at 0800.


    The next day at 0845 there is a knock at the Personnel Manager's door.


    The Foreman from the assembly line throws open the door and begins to rant about the new employee. He complains that she is incredibly slow and the whole line is backing up, putting the entire production line behind schedule.


    The Personnel Manager decides he should see this for himself. So the 2 men march down to the factory floor. When they get there the line is so backed up that there are Tickle Me Elmo's all over the factory floor and they're really beginning to pile up.


    At the end of the line stands the new employee surrounded by mountain of Tickle Me Elmo's.


    She has a roll of plush red fabric and a huge bag of small marbles.


    The 2 men watch in amazement as she cuts a little piece of fabric, wraps it around two marbles and begins to carefully sew the little package between Elmo's legs.


    The Personnel Manager bursts into laughter. After several minutes of hysterics he pulls himself together and approaches the woman.


    "I'm sorry,"he says to her, barely able to keep a straight face, "but I think you misunderstood the instructions I gave you yesterday".


    "Your job is to give Elmo two test tickles".

    Golf Ball Hunt


    Off the seventh tee, Joe sliced his shot deep into a       

    wooded ravine. He took his eight iron and clambered   

    down the embankment in search of his lost ball. After 

    many long minutes of hacking at the underbrush, he   

    spotted something glistening in the leaves. As he        

    drew nearer, he discovered that it was an eight iron in 

    the hands of a skeleton! Joe immediately called out    

    to his friend, Jack, Ive got trouble down here! Whats   

    the matter? Jack asked from the edge of the ravine.   

    Bring me my wedge, Joe shouted. You cant get out of

    here with an eight iron!                                                      




    Cloak & Dagger

    A soldier at the Pentagon got out of the shower, and    

    realized that his clothes were missing. While                 

    searching around for them, he accidentally locked       

    himself out of the locker room, and he found himself  

    completely naked in the halls of the world''s most        

    powerful military organization HQ. But, luckily, no one

    was around to see him.                                                       

    So, he ran as fast as he could to the elevator. When it  

    arrived, it was empty. He breathed a sigh of relief and 

    got in. When the doors opened on his floor, there was 

    no one waiting outside. "This must be my lucky day,"   

    he said to himself. He was now only a few yards from 

    his office.                                                                               

    Suddenly, he heard footsteps coming from around       

    the corner. He heard the General''s voice. There was    

    no way he'd make it to his door in time, so he ducked  

    into the closest office available, and found himself in  

    the laboratory for Research & Development. The          

    Head Scientist looked up from one of her                      

    experiments with puzzled interest.                                  

    The soldier thought quickly, stood up straight and       

    "I am here to report the partial success of the              

    Personal Invisibility Device," he said.                             

    "I see," the Head Scientist said. "But the Shrink Ray    

    seems to be working perfectly."                                      




    Finding Perfect Men


    At a local coffee bar, a young woman was                  

    expounding on her idea of the perfect mate to some

    "The man I marry must be a shining light amongst    

    company. He must be musical. Tell jokes. Sing. And

    stay home at night!"                                                         

    An old granny overheard and spoke up, "Honey, if    

    that's all you want, get a TV!"

    A Few English Proverbs with Explanations




    Caught between a rock and a hard place
    Caught between the devil and the deep blue sea
    (to be stuck with two choices that are both undesirable)


    Out of the frying pan and into the fire
    (to go from a bad to a worse situation)


    Might as well be hanged for a sheep as a lamb
    (if you're going to get into the same amount of trouble, you might as well commit the greater offense)


    Six of one, half a dozen of the other
    (each choice is really the same thing)


    Two sides of the same coin
    (two aspects of a situation that are connected by necessity)


    In for a penny, in for a pound
    (if you're going to make a minor commitment you might as well make the entire commitment)


    Don't count your chickens before they're hatched
    (don't start making plans for something until it is a reality, rather than a pleasant speculation)


    Don't cross your bridges before you get to them

    (don't worry about future problems before you need to)


    A stitch in time saves nine
    (if you take care of a problem while it's small you won't have a bigger problem to deal with later)

    (or, as Dr. Who likes to say: A stitch in time takes up space)


    Time and tide wait for no man
    (act in a timely fashion because you can't get back lost chances)
    (or, once again as Dr. Who likes to say: Time and tide melts the snowman.)

    arrives with a simple message: "Maxwell Coffee

    When the second daughter got married, it took a

    Finally it was the third one's wedding. Mother was       

    very anxious. After 4 weeks came the message:          

    "British Airways". When mother looked into the ad,

      WTF fun fact #8526

      Patel is not a family name as are used in much of the world. It’s more of a regional origin designation. (Chinese names are like that too.) Kind of like it might be if you were Sandrewn Ontario!  ;-)


      There are several examples of immigrants from one country or region having extremely large percentages of a particular industry in the US. I think it’s because recent immigrants get assistance from immigrants who have been here longer. Historically, Chinese were known for dry cleaners. Koreans are known for donut shops and small grocery stores. South Asians are also known for operating gas stations and convenience stores. In some cities, Russians were taxi drivers.  ;-)


      It wouldn’t surprise me if the one third percentage was accurate…  ;-)

    One sunny day a rabbit came out of her hole in the ground to enjoy the fine weather. The day was so nice that she became careless and a fox snuck up behind her and caught her.


    "I am going to eat you for lunch!", said the fox.


    "Wait!", replied the rabbit, "You should at least wait a few days."


    "Oh yeah? Why should I wait?"


    "Well, I am just finishing my thesis on 'The Superiority of rabbits over Foxes and Wolves.'"


    "Are you crazy? I should eat you right now! Everybody knows that a fox will always win over a rabbit."


    "Not really, not according to my research. If you like, you can come into my hole and read it for yourself. If you are not convinced, you can go ahead and have me for lunch."


    "You really are crazy!" But since the fox was curious and had nothing to lose, it went with the rabbit. The fox never came out.


    A few days later the rabbit was again taking a break from writing and sure enough, a wolf came out of the bushes and was right on her.


    "Wait!" yelled the rabbit, "you can't eat me right now."


    "And why might that be, my furry appetizer?"


    "I am almost finished writing my thesis on 'The Superiority of Rabbits over Foxes and Wolves.'"


    The wolf laughed so hard that it almost lost its grip on the rabbit.

    "Maybe I shouldn't eat you; you really are sick ... in the head. You might have something contagious."


    "Come and read it for yourself; you can eat me afterward if you disagree with me. So the wolf went down into the rabbit's hole ... and never came out. The rabbit finished her thesis and was out celebrating in the local lettuce patch.


    Another rabbit came along and asked, "What's up? You seem very happy."


    "Yup, I just finished my thesis."

    "Congratulations. What's it about?"

    "'The Superiority of Rabbits over Foxes and Wolves.'"

    "Are you sure? That doesn't sound right."

    "Oh yes. Come and read it for yourself."


    So together they went down into the rabbit's hole. As they entered, the friend saw the typical graduate abode, albeit a rather messy one after writing a thesis. The computer with the controversial work was in one corner. And to the right there was a pile of fox bones, on the left a pile of wolf bones. And in the middle was a large, well-fed lion.


    The moral of the story:

    The title of your thesis doesn't matter. The subject doesn't matter.
    The research doesn't matter.

    All that matters is who your advisor is.





    A beekeeper had a summer house in the Maine

    splendid time in the country - rising early and living in

    Early one morning they went out to pick berries fo

    their morning breakfast. As they went around the       

    berry patch along came two huge bears. The               

    beekeeper dashed for cover. His friend wasn't so        

    lucky and the male bear reached him and swallowed 

    him whole. The beekeeper ran back to his car, drove 

    to town as fast has he could, and got the sheriff. The

     sheriff grabbed his rifle and dashed back to the berry

    patch with the beekeeper.                                                

    Sure enough, both bears were still there. "He's in       

      THAT one!" cried the beekeeper, pointing to the male.

    The sheriff looked at the bears, and without batting  

    an eye, leveled his gun, took careful aim, and SHOT

    the beekeeper, "I said he was in the other!"

      How To Wipe Out The Human Race?

      I’d like to know who’s stupid enough to do that! I’m guessing either US or Russia! But someone who either loves or has never seen the Terminator movies.  ;-)

      The dot com crash took over two years to reach Sweden. After April 2002, things were completely dead.

      Things were especially devastating in the Bay Area. People who moved to Oakland to escape from the too tight or too expensive housing market across the Bay in San Francisco move back (or away). Traffic across the Bay Bridge suddenly dropped in volume.


      But gradually, after a few years, things started to pick up again. Especially in San Francisco, along the Peninsula, and the South Bay/Silicon Valley area, construction has been booming. However, there are still areas that have been left out if the rush to build, like West (Contra Costa) County which has never recovered from the closing of the WWII shipyards.

    Tick-Tock! Crazy Clock Optical Illusion



    Tick! Tock! Tick! Tock! It’s a crazy clock optical illusion today!

    Mornings are bad enough without having to worry about our clocks moving on us. It think that if I had this particular clock, I would probably just blow off the day before it even started for me. Just crawl back under the covers and hide…









    This is one of those nutty moving optical illusions with some clock hands added for good measure. The background of this clock optical illusion seems to rotate and move when I move my eyes to the side and look at it out of the corner of my eye. I can’t even imagine having this hanging on my wall. I would probably avoid looking at the clock even more than I already do now!


    Would you hang this clock on your wall in your house? Or would you save it for your mortal enemy’s house?






    Cute Monkey Face Illusion for Friday


    Since it’s Friday, I’m thinking that we need a fun illusion today! So, enjoy this cute little monkey face illusion…








    This monkey face illusion is such a simple illusion, but it’s so adorable! It’s actually just photograph that was perfectly timed. The monkey had to have been in just the right position at just the right time to get this shot!

      I don't even have a middle name! :P Seems like people make a bigger deal out of that crap than they should. Do you know why people are always embarrassed when their parents talk about their middle name? Because, subconsciously, they know it's not natural to have more than two names. :gikkle:

    3. Puppilull


      Unknowingly of the day, I had meatballs yesterday. What a fluke celebration! We don't have a meatball day in Sweden, strangely enough. 


      The monkey faced girl could actually have improved her look, because that combo is super cute! ;)

    4. droughtquake


      There are only two reasons I can think of off-hand for having a middle name (neither which apply in my case):

      1. Your last name is so common that there’d be confusion otherwise (ie Johnson, Jackson, Thompson, Smith, etc)
      2. Your parents want to honor your heritage (ie ethnic/national/racial, family history)


      With my older nephew, his parents decided to honor my paternal grandfather. With my younger nephew, his parents chose to name him after a Dutch author they both admire. With my second grand-niece, my older nephew and his wife decided to honor their grandmothers and her middle name is my mother’s name – and coincidentally, she shares my initials!  ;-)


      While my parents decided to go biblical (kind of obvious considering my father’s profession of Protestant minister), my brothers and their wives went with very British first names for their sons (kind of fitting for my older nephew since most of his mother’s ancestors were probably English). As I mentioned elsewhere, my older niece has a made-up name, but her brother chose his mother middle name to go with it. My younger niece is adopted and they modified her birth last name to use as her first name – and her really bad uncle can’t remember what her middle name is!  ;-)

    Fun Rainy Day Puddle Illusion



    Today’s puddle illusion is an oldie but a goodie. It’s been floating around the Internet for a while now.






    It looks like a person’s reflection in a puddle, doesn’t it. However, when you really look at the picture, you begin to realize that something just isn’t quite right. For instance, someone’s reflection and shoes are there, but the actual person is not! It’s impossible, for lack of a better word.


    Judging from the position of the legs in the reflection, I think it’s safe to say that this puddle illusion is nothing more than a clever Photoshop job. It’s still a pretty great illusion, though, and it definitely made me do a double take!







    Let’s Go For an Impossible Bike Ride!

    It’s a beautiful day for a bike ride, don’t you think? Apparently, these ladies thought so too, and they set out for a bike ride near the beach…






    But, we are an optical illusion website, and I didn’t post this just to spread the word about how bike rides are a fun way to stay in shape. As always, there’s something a little off about this picture.


    I’ll give you a moment to ponder this bike optical illusions before I go spewing hints…


    Do you see it yet? If not, no worries! I didn’t spot it for a while either


    Here are a few hints to help you out:

    • There’s nothing hidden in the trees.
    • The image doesn’t need to be turned upside down.
    • You don’t need to squint or take your glasses off.
    • It has nothing to do with the women at all.
    • It’s on the left side of the picture.
    • It’s a bike optical illusion.

    See the bike optical illusion yet? Need even more help? How about I just tell you…






    This bike optical illusion is really an illusion, because there is no bike—at least not one that’s possible in reality. The woman to the far left in the image is steering something, but it isn’t her own bike! If you look closely, you can see that her handlebars are actually connected to the woman’s bike next to her. Look even closer still, and it looks like her leg is also over the other woman’s bike, and it may appear that they’re actually riding a tandem bike. However, because they’re actually positioned next to each other, this is one impossible bike ride and a fun bike optical illusion!

      International Women's Day

      Followed by World Naked Bike Race in San Francisco on Saturday, March 10th (there was a previous WNBR in SF on January 1st).  Public nudity is illegal in San Francisco with exceptions for certain festivals (including Folsom St). But the authorities generally do not enforce those prohibitions too strictly.


      Many Southern Hemisphere locations will also hold their WNBRs on March 10th (Melbourne, Vic is waiting until Sunday, March 18th).

    Inside Out Cube Illusion

    I opened it and immediately thought I was staring at the outer corner of a cube. Then, it looked like it was actually the inner corner of a cube. Then, it looked like just a bunch of little cubes.

    And now, I’m so confused!

    What do you think about this cube illusion? Is it the outside corner or inside corner? Or, is it not a cube illusion at all…?







    See what I mean? It’s a little hard to tell if you’re looking at the outside or inside of a cube. If you look at it just right, you can probably even see both perspectives.

    Toy Soldiers Optical Illusion


    Do you remember when you were a little kid and you would invite a friend over to your house to play with toy soldiers? Even if your friend didn’t make it, you probably still played with the soldiers and just took full advantage of your imagination. Well, the guy who created the optical illusion I’m going to show you today plays with toy soldiers and definitely has a great imagination. However, he’s not playing with them in the way that you probably played with them. Check out the picture below and you’ll see what I mean.










    Now that’s a pretty cool illusion, huh? It turns out only one of the soldiers is actually a toy soldier and the rest are drawings.

      The cherry tree would never have been able to grow this big or suppress the mulberry just by sprouting in a small depression. Grafting is the only way. Lots of ornamental trees are grafted, but it's normally done close to the ground, so you don't see it and so the root stock doesn't get the chance to grow and overtake the grafted tree.

    3. droughtquake


      Most rose plants sold in the US are grafted onto rootstock that’s a different variety. The rootstock is bred to be stronger and more resistant to disease and the part grafted on is developed for their blossoms. This gives you the best chance of successfully growing beautiful roses.  ;-)

    "C'mon, sure you have."                                                           

    "No, really, we don't stock it. What is it? Some kind of     

    foreign beer?"                                                                          

    "I'm not sure. It was my doctor who mentioned it. He      

    said I should drink Less."                                                       





    After gunning his BMW the wrong way down a one-

    way street, the rather intoxicated young man was    

    asked where he thought he was going by a curious 

    police officer.                                                                   

    “I’m not really sure,” confessed the drunk, “but         

    wherever it is, I must be late, because everybody    

    seems to be coming back already.”                             




    Crazy people don't know they are     

    crazy, I know I'm crazy therefore I'm

    not crazy. Isn't that crazy.

      She’s wearing his shoes while leaning to her right. He’s sitting behind her while wearing her pants and groping himself! That’s why they’re grinning like that!
