A joke for my American readers

George Bush was out jogging one morning when he came across a
little boy sitting on the White House lawn with a box full
of newborn puppies.

He was mesmerized by the cute little puppies and when the
little boy said, "You should take one, they're Republican
puppies,"

George replied, "Well, that's just great, maybe I will."

The next day, he takes Dick Cheney jogging with him. "Dick,
you gotta come with me, there's something I have to show you."

As they approach the boy with the box, the boy says, "Would
either of you like a puppy? They're Democrat puppies."

A puzzled George asks, "But didn't you tell me just yesterday
that they were Republican puppies?"

The boy replied, "Yes, but that was before their eyes opened."

HOW THE SOFTWARE INDUSTRY WORKS

Saw this in a news letter and had to pass it on ... it is just too lifelike.

Programmer to Team Leader:

"We CAN NOT do this proposed project. It will involve a major
design change and no one in our team knows the design of this
system. And above that, nobody in our company knows the
language in which this application has been written. If you
ask my personal opinion, the company should never take these
type of projects."

"If Charles Dickens were alive today, what do you suppose
would be his favorite cocktail? I think probably a vodka
martini.

Joke about student finances (maybe)

A student called up his mom from college and asked her for
some money.

Mom said, "Sure, sweetie. I'll send you some money. You also
left your calculus book here when you visited 2 weeks ago.
Do you want me to send that up too?"

"Yeah, sure," he responded.
