WITTICISMs, JOKEs & RIDDLEs: Patty Nsionu's Compilation. 2002+

Favorite aphorism 1: Evil blossoms when good people don't get involved.

Favorite aphorism 2: Good philosophy must exist in order to refute bad ideologies.

Favorite aphorism 3: Do not look down on anyone, unless you mean to pick him up.

Creativity is allowing oneself to make mistakes.
Art is knowing which ones to keep.
--Scott Adams -- (Collegejokes).

All that evil needs to take over is for a good person to sit and do nothing. -(7th Heaven)








A mother mouse was out for a stroll with her babies when she spotted a cat crouched behind a bush. She watched the cat, and the cat watched the mice.

Mother mouse barked fiercely, "Woof, woof, woof!"

The cat was so terrified that it ran for its life.

Then, mother mouse turned to her babies and said,

"Now, do you understand the value of a second language?"


Little Delusions of Grandeur: from Joke A Day

Because of some of the angry letters I've received as the moderator, I've decided to seek professional help. Just today, as a matter of fact, I had my first visit with a psychiatrist.

We both got comfortable. Me on the couch. He in his chair. He opened the session by saying, "I'm not aware of your problem, Mr. Owens. Perhaps it would be best if you started from the very beginning."

"Of course, " I said, "In the beginning, I created the Heavens and the Earth . . . what a tough 7 days that was . . ."


My grandfather worked in a blacksmith shop when he was a boy, and he used to tell me, when I was a little boy myself, how he had toughened himself up so he could stand the rigors of blacksmithing.

One story was how he had developed his arm and shoulder muscles. He said he would stand outside behind the house and, with a 5 pound potato sack in each hand, extend his arms

straight out to his sides and hold them there as long as he could.

After awhile he tried 10 pound potato sacks, then 50 pound potato sacks and finally he got to where he could lift a 100 pound potato sack in each hand and hold his arms straight out for more than a full minute!

Next, he started putting potatoes in the sacks. Since then the rest was history.


Little Chemistry Major:

A professor of chemistry wanted to teach his 5th grade class a lesson about the evils of liquor, so he produced an experiment that involved a glass of water, a glass of whiskey, and two worms.

"Now, class. Observe closely the worms," said the professor putting a worm first into the water. The worm in the water writhed about, happy as a worm in water could be.

The second worm, he put into the whiskey. It writhed painfully, and quickly sank to the bottom, dead as a doornail.

"Now, what lesson can we derive from this experiment?" the professor asked.

Johnny, who naturally sits in back, raised his hand and wisely, and responded,

"Drink whiskey and you won't get worms."


A preacher was completing a temperance sermon: with great expression he said, "If I had all the beer in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river."

With even greater emphasis he said, "And if I had all the wine in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river."

And then finally, he said, "And if I had all the whiskey in the world, I'd take it and throw it into the river." He sat down.

The song leader then stood very cautiously and announced with a smile, "For our closing song, let us sing Hymn # 365:

"Shall We Gather at the River."


The local priest came across Paddy who had stumbled out of the town tavern.

"Paddy," he said, " I'm afraid I'll not be seeing you in Heaven one day."

"Really?" mumbled Paddy. "What have you done, Father?"


A little girl was sitting on her daddy's lap one day. She gazed up at her father and said,

"Daddy, did anyone ever tell you that you're the most wonderful and smartest man in the world?"

Her father, filled with pride said, "Why no, honey, they haven't."

"Then where did you get the idea?" she asked.



Count the # of F's in the following text:

Finished counting them?
Scroll down only after you have counted them okay?!

How many? 3?

Wrong there are 6!! -no joke.
Read it again.

The reasoning is further down.

The brain cannot process "OF."
Incredible or what?

Anyone who counts all 6 "F"s on the first attempt is a genius!!
Three is normal, but four is quite rare!!

Send this to your friends to test their brain power [IQ-TEST]!!


Some of the most tactful people on Earth are English. One office supervisor called a secretary in to give her the bad news that she was being fired from her job.

He started the conversation with: "Miss Smythe, I really don't know how we're going to get along without you, but starting Monday, we're going to try.


Reader Marlene shows how far a sense of humor can go.

She recently left the hospital after losing her vocal cords to cancer. When she returned to work after 3 months one brave fellow joked with her, "Wow, Marlene -- you're every

man's dream -- a woman that can't talk!"

Marlene replied, "A MAN?? Good grief, I just got cancer. I don't need a "man" on top of that!"


Did ya hear Billy Clinton is back in Washington DC?

You betcha. The former President has a new job.

Hillary has hired him to open her mails.

Subject: Re: Fw: We are well Prepared

After the tragedy in New York and Washington the question arises:


>Well ... if that happens, there can be no comparison. That's because in Nigeria, believe it or not, we are much better prepared for these kind of attacks.

>1. We do not construct exaggerated elevated buildings.

>2. We all get on the job late in the morning, so at 8:45 there won't be sufficient people to kill.

>3. Fire fighters and police officers will do their utmost not to get to the spot in time. They will reach there just when everything is over, so there will be no casualties among them.

>4. The Nigeria Airways would surely have fouled up the terrorists plans by being delayed again, and of course losing their luggage.

>5. A Nigerian would not have used his cell phone to call home. He wo! uld've hit the terrorist with it over the head.

>6. If a terrorist was living for one year in Nigeria, he would have been robbed and molested so many times by the night "Ninjas" (armed robbers) that he would have given up and gone back to Afghanistan a long time ago. The celebrated airport armed robbers that are usually robbing hapless travelers on their way to and from the airport would surely have seen these 'oyibo mallams' to deal with...

>7. In Nigeria the terrorists would not have gotten the flight manual because they would have had to pay for it to several people.

>8. When there is a fire or burning, Naija people don't listen to statements like 'We have the situation under control please leave the building slowly and in an orderly fashion' they just get the hell out of there without looking back.

>9. A myriad of factors like NEPA, Fuel scarcity etc would surely have mucked up any effort to simultaneously strike prime targets.! Some of the fellows would have been stuck in Oshodi (Lagos) go slow at that time of the day and missed the plane............if an 'Area Boy' or pickpocket didn't steal off their master plan.

>For these and many other such reasons, you see... in Nigeria we are well prepared!!!
