Joker's Monday (The Presidential debate)

Why is it that the weekend takes so long to come along, but Mondays come twice as quick?

Here we are again. Last week the world’s news was led by the American Presidential debate. I can’t help but think what pointless exercises they are, and why the world needs it. History had shown that real power follows the money, not the other way around. Who has the money has the power.

The Roman Empire collapsed after it bankrupted itself through greed and corruption. The British Empire gave up the ghost when it bankrupted itself trying to fight two world wars, and the Communist Empire never lasted long because it didn’t know how to make a profit.

Who has the money now? Well it’s probably better to ask who has the debt now. America, Japan, Most countries of the European Union, all of them with their chins up to the sh#t line of the cesspit, and still sinking.

So who does have the money? China, Russia, Brazil, the oil rich gulf states! (Germany already proves the rule; just look whose runs Europe now! And it isn’t the debt laden French.)

To think, just twenty five years ago, China, and her two co-hosts were total economic basket cases. I wonder in twenty five years’ time if the U.S debates will be shown across the world, or will we have to endure the equivalent with Mr Putin, or from the Far East?


Anyway enough debate for today, here are a few light lines to cheer this Monday.


Resolving to surprise her husband, an executive’s wife stopped by his office. She found him with his secretary sitting in his lap.

Without hesitating, he dictated, “….and in conclusion, gentleman, shortage or no shortage, I cannot continue to operate this office with just one chair.


Words of Wisdom

(1) All rumours are true – especially if your boss denies it.

(2) You can go anywhere you want if you look serious and carry a clipboard.

(3) If you look good, you will be assigned all the work. If you are really good, you will get out of it.

(4) Ambition is a poor excuse for not having enough sense to be lazy.
