Joker's Monday (The Peace Prize)

As is customary on Monday I try to liven the day with some light jokes. It can be hard to find time for a bit of fun to break up the monotony of a Monday Morning, but I must say I didn’t know if I should laugh or cry as I scanned the press reports on the European Union receiving the Noble Peace Prize.

True there has been relative peace, until recently, between European Nations (That’s if you exclude all the wars they have been fighting over the rest of the planet.) But as the people of Europe are in mass rebellion because of policy’s brought about by the very same union, I do ponder if peace has been kept because of the EEC or because of the nuclear bomb.

In a funny sort of way maybe the now defunct U.S.S.R should receive a posthumous peace prize from the Noble committee? For it was the perceived threat from Russia that ultimately brought about the European Union, and their military might which stopped the West from getting too arrogant.

The last point has now been proved, because it’s the arrogance of the EU bureaucrats that is now causing the cities of Europe to erupt into violence.

Maybe the Noble Committee were only having their version of Joker’s Monday? Who knows, anyway here are some tong-in-cheek job descriptions which I hope will bring a smile to you this morning.


Accountants do it with double entry.

Acupuncturists do it with a small prick.

Ambulance drivers come quickly.

Bankers do it with interest.

Policemen do it with handcuffs.

DJs do it on request.

Dentists do it orally.

Detectives do it undercover.

Firemen do it with a big hose.

Bin men come once a week.

Gardeners do it in the bushes.

Landlords do it on the 1st of every month.

Pizza delivery men come in 30 minutes or it’s free.

Waitresses do it for the tips.

  1. true we are fighting on streets no freedon from euro peace prize a joke

  2. Hi, Europe's problems are the worlds problems and I know there is one prize those guys wouldn't have won, and that's for economics. They only need to study the mistakes which caused the Great Depression to know that the same mistakes made then aren't going to work now.
