Day Brightener – The Story Of The Wine Taster

At a wine merchant, the regular taster died and the director started looking for a new one to hire.

A drunkard with a ragged, dirty look came to apply for the position.

The director of the factory wondered how to send him away.

They gave him a glass to drink.

He tried it and said, “It’s a Muscat, three Years old, grown on a north slope, matured in steel containers”. Low grade but acceptable.

“That’s correct”, said the boss.

Another glass….

“It’s a cabernet, eight years old, a south-western slope, oak barrels, matured at 8 degrees. Requires three more years for finest results..”


A third glass…

”It’s a pinot blanc champagne, high grade and exclusive” calmly said the drunk.

The director was astonished.

He winked at his secretary to suggest something. She left the room and came back in with a glass of urine. The alcoholic tried it.

“It’s a blonde, 26 years old, three months pregnant and if you don’t give me the job, I’ll name the father

Day Brightener – Old Man Walking – Sometimes We Overcomplicate Things

Two medical students were walking along the street when they saw an old man walking with his legs spread apart. He was stiff-legged and walking slowly.

One student said to his friend: “I’m sure that poor old man has Peltry Syndrome. Those people walk just like that.”

The other student says:  “No, I don’t think so. The old man surely has Zovitzki Syndrome. He walks slowly and his legs are apart, just as we learned in class.”

Since they couldn’t agree they decided to ask the old man. They approached him.

And one of the students said to him,

“We’re medical students and couldn’t help but notice the way you walk. We couldn’t agree on the syndrome you might have….Could you tell us what it is?”

The old man said, “I’ll tell you, but first you tell me what you two fine medical students think.”

The first student said, “I think it’s Peltry Syndrome.”

The old man said, “You thought – but you are wrong.”

The other student said, “I think you have Zovitzki Syndrome.”

The old man said, “You thought – but you are wrong.”

So they asked him, “Well, old timer, what do you have?”

The old man said,

“Well, I thought it was GAS – but I was wrong, too!”

On a bitterly cold winter morning, an Irish husband and his blonde headed wife were listening to the radio during breakfast. They heard the announcer say, “We are going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, so the snow plows can get through.”  So the good wife went out and moved her car.

A week later while they were eating breakfast again, the radio announcer said, “We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today. You must park your car on the odd-numbered side of the street so the snow plows can get through.”  The good wife went out and moved her car again.

A week later they are again having breakfast, when the radio announcer says, “We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today.  You must park . . . ”  Then the electric power went out and the radio went silent.

The good wife was very upset, and with a worried look on her face, she said, “I don’t know what to do.  Which side of the street do I need to park on so the snow plow s can get through?”

Then with the love and understanding in his voice that all men who are married to blondes exhibit, the husband replied, “Why don’t you just leave the car in the garage this time.”

(I didn’t see that coming, either.).
