  1. The Cregeen

    During a lull at a Government Department Xmas dinner, a junior civil servant leaned over to chat with his senior, ."The staff bought Mr Cregeen a parrot for his Christmas. That bird is so clever, Graham has already taught him to say over two hundred words!"“Very impressive," said the Senior , "but, you do realize he just speaks the words.He doesn't really understand what they all mean.”"Oh, I know", replied the junior, “but then again, neither does the parrot."

  5. Secret of a long life.

    SECRET OF A LONG LIFE A tough old sheep farmer from West Baldwin gave some advice to his granddaughter. He told her that the secret to a long life was to sprinkle a pinch of gunpowder onto her porridge every morning. The granddaughter followed this dictum religiously until her death at the venerable age of 103. She left behind 14 children, 30 grandchildren, 45 great grandchildren, 25 great grandchildren and a forty foot crater where the Douglas crematorium used to be.

  12. Gis a go.

    A fella was riding on a No 3 bus minding his own business when the gorgeous woman next to him started to breast-feed her baby. The baby wouldn't take it so she said, "Come on sweetie, eat it all up or I'll have to give it to this nice man next to us." Five minutes later the baby was still not feeding, so she said, "Come on, honey. Take it or I'll give it to this nice man here." As the Bus pulled into Laxey the fella blurted out, "Come on young un. Make up your bloody mind! I was supposed to get off at the Liverpool Arms!"
