Globalisation !!

 

Question: What is the height of globalization ?

Answer: Princess Diana’s death.

Question: How come ?

Answer: An English princess with an Egyptian boyfriend crashes in a French tunnel, riding in a German car with a Dutch engine, driven by a Belgian who was high on Scottish whiskey, followed closely by Italian Paparazzi, on japanese motorcycles, treated by an American doctor, using Brazilian medicines !

And this is sent to you by an Indian, using Bill Gates’ technology which he stole from the Japanese. And you are probably reading this on one of the IBM clones that use Taiwanese-made chips, and Korean-made monitors, assembled by Bangladeshi workers in a Singapore plant, transported by lorries driven by Indians, hijacked by Indonesians and finally sold to you!

That, my friend, is Globalization 😀

Don’t Regret Regret !!

Next of Kin

Father O’Malley rose from his bed one morning. It was a fine spring day in his new Ballina parish.

He walked to the window of his bedroom to get a deep breath of the beautiful day outside. He then noticed there was a donkey lying dead in the middle of his front lawn. Not knowing who else to call, he promptly called the local police station.

The conversation went like this:

“Good morning. This is Sergeant Flannagan. How might I help you?”

“And the best of the day to your good self. This is Father O’Malley at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church. There is a donkey lying dead right in the middle of my front lawn. “

Sergeant Flannagan, considering himself to be quite a wit, replied with a smirk, “Well now Father, it was always my impression that you people took care of the last rites!”

There was dead silence on the line for a long moment and then Father O’Malley replied:

“Ah, to be sure, that is true; but we are also obliged to notify the next of kin.”
