Blonde joke

The traffic light wasn't working on the corner of Broadway
and 72nd Street, so the blonde stood with a large crowd of
people waiting to cross, while a cop directed traffic.

Finally, the cop blew his whistle, motioned to the crowd,
and shouted, "Okay, pedestrians!" The throng surged across
Broadway -- all except the blonde, who stayed on the corner.

Quotes of the day

Hmmm ... a bit darker than usual, but then this is Monday morning.

Elbert Hubbard

There is no fate that cannot be surmounted by scorn.
Albert Camus (1913 - 1960)

Some for renown, on scraps of learning dote,
And think they grow immortal as they quote.
Edward Young, Love of Fame (satire I, l. 89)

Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you walk into an open sewer and die.
Mel Brooks (1926 - )

Journey in to work

Well I'm here at work, but an hour later than I wanted to be :(

I guess the good news is that I wasn't in any of the accidents on the M3 this morning. There was one multi-vehicle accident just before junction 7 with one car in the central crash barrier and a load of others on the side of the road, including one pointing in the wrong direction! Then just before fleet services, when I eventually got there one car was being draged onto a low-loader and there was debris on the road.

Ah well - better get on with the "real" work.

take care
