I don’t buy that excuse for you being late

Jones came into the office an hour late for the third time this month and found the boss waiting for him at his desk.

“What’s the story this time, Jones?” the boss asked while dripping sarcasm. “Let’s hear a good excuse for a change.”

Jones sighed, “Everything went wrong this morning, Boss.  The wife decided to drive me to the station.  She got ready in ten minutes, but then the drawbridge got stuck. Rather than let you down, I swam across the river.  I ran out to the airport, got a ride on Mr. Thompson’s helicopter, landed on top of Radio City Music Hall, and was carried here piggyback by one of the Rockette dancers.”

“You’ll have to do better than that, Jones,” said the boss, obviously disappointed. “No woman can get ready in ten minutes.”

We’ve just been notified by Security that there have been 6 suspected terrorists working out of your office.  Five of the six have been apprehended: Bin Sleepin, Bin Loafin, Bin Goofin, Bin Lunchin and Bin Drinkin have been taken into custody.

Our agent advised us that they could find no one fitting the description of the sixth cell member, Bin Workin, at your office.  Security is confident that anyone who looks like he’s Bin Workin will be very easy to spot.

You are obviously not a suspect at this time.

Make and wish and you’ll never work again

One day a government worker was digging through his office drawers when suddenly he came upon a magic lamp.  Since he’d heard these jokes before, he knew that he had to rub the lamp and make the genie come out.  So he rubbed the lamp and out popped a genie.

The genie asked, as genies will, “What is your first wish?”

The government worker thought about it for a second, then replied, “I would like to be rich!”

So the genie granted him his wish, and poof the man was surrounded by piles of money rivaling the heaps of even Martha Stewart and Bill Gates.

Since the government worker knew the whole wish process, the genie didn’t even have to ask for number two before he said, “My second wish is to be on an island with beautiful women surrounding me and obeying my every command!”

And poof, he was there. Then the government worker decided on his third wish, “I don’t want to do any work ever again!” and poof — ubiquitous ironic twist — he was back in his office.

Three men and the Genie

Three men – a project manager, a software engineer, and a hardware engineer – are in Miami beach for a two-week period helping out on a project.  About midweek, they decide to walk up and down the beach during their lunch hour.  Halfway up the beach, they stumble upon a lamp.  As they rub the lamp, a genie appears and says, “Normally I would grant you three wishes, but since there are 3 of you, I will grant you each one wish.”

The hardware engineer goes first.  “I would like to spend the rest of my life living in a huge house in St. Thomas, with no money worries and surrounded by beautiful women who worship me.”  The genie grants him his wish and sends him on off to St. Thomas.

The software engineer is next.  “I would like to spend the rest of my life living on a huge yacht cruising the Mediterranean, with no money worries and surrounded by beautiful women who worship me.”  The genie grants him his wish and sends him off to the Mediterranean.

Last, but not least, it’s the project manager’s turn. “And what would your wish be?” asked the genie.

“I want them both back after lunch” replied the project manager.
