A young jackaroo from outback Queensland goes off to university.
Halfway through the semester he has foolishly squandered all of his money.
He calls home. 'Dad,' he says,
'you won't believe what modern education is developing..
They actually have a program here in Brisbane that
will teach our dog Ol' Blue how to talk.'
'That's amazing!' his Dad says. 'How do I get Ol' Blue in that program?'
'Just send him down here with $2,000,' the young jackaroo says, 'I'll get him in the course.'
So .... his father sends the dog and $2,000.
About two-thirds through the semester, the money again runs out.
The boy calls home.
'So how's Ol' Blue doing, son?' his father wants to know..
'Awesome! Dad, he's talking up a storm... but you just won't believe this.
They've had such good results with talking, they've begun to teach the
animals how to read.'
'Read?' exclaims his father. 'No kidding! How do we get Ol' Blue in that program?'
'Just send $4,500. I'll get him in the class.'
The money promptly arrives. But our hero has a problem.
At the end of the year, his father will find out the dog can neither talk nor read.
So he shoots the dog.
When he arrives home at the end of the year, his father is all excited.
'Where's Ol' Blue? I just can't wait to talk with him, and see him
'Dad,' the boy says, 'I have some grim news.
Yesterday morning, just before we left to drive home,
Ol' Blue was in the living room, kicked back
in the recliner, reading the Wall Street Journal.
Then he suddenly turned to me and asked,
"So, is your Daddy still dating that little redhead barmaid at the pub?''
The father groans and whispers,
'I hope you shot that swine before he talks to your Mother!'
'I sure did, Dad!'
'That's my boy!'
The kid went on to be a successful lawyer and politician!

We have used this very funny article as the basis of an experiment
into the best way to show pictures.
I'm going to look at increasing the picture size to a suitable standard.
The following slide show from Flickr seems good to me.
If you roll your mouse over the presenation, choices appear.
You can skip backwards and forward and browse through thumbnail images and lots of things.
I think the time taken to get images from the email that you send me
to the final presentation in Sunday Humour
will now be much easier.
I'm going to try to make it so that you can copy just a presentation
if you want to save it or forward it.
Please let me know what you think -
How about the download speed?
Should we use Flickr in future?
Go slowly and enjoy

Thanks to David H.
his movie-sequence is more than historical and just breathtaking beautiful!
(Switch to HD and full screen with sound on).
You`re almost sitting in the FA-18 chaseplane and can hear the pilot`s breath.
What a nice feeling of flying!
