********

1. The word "incorrectly. "


********

2. 1:45. The man gave away a total of 25 cents. He divided it between two people. Therefore, he gave a quarter to two.


********

3. None, the boat rises with the tide. Googly ;-)


********

4. White. If all the walls face south, the house is at the North pole, and the bear, therefore, is a polar bear.


********

5. Three. Well, it seems that it could almost be either, but if you follow the mathematical orders of operation, division is performed before addition.

So... half of two is one. Then add two, and the answer is three.


********

6. Sloppy is a (gold)fish. The wind blew the shutters in, which knocked his goldfish-bowl off the table, and it broke, killing him.


********

7. None. No matter how big a hole is, it's still a hole: the absence of dirt.


********

8. Both questions, same answer: the ball in the bucket of 45 degree F water hits the bottom of the bucket last. Did you think that the water in the 30 degree F bucket is frozen? Think again.


The question said nothing about that bucket having anything in it. Therefore, there is no water (or ice) to slow the ball down...


********

9. The time and month/date/year American style calendar are 12:34, 5/6/78.


********

10. One. If he combines all of his haystacks, they all become one big stack.


********

11. The temperature.

Whaaatta Confusion

One morning at a doctor's surgery a patient arrives complaining of serious back-pain. The doctor examines him and asks him "OK, what happened to your back?"
 
The patient replies "You know that I work for a local night club? This morning I got home to my apartment early and heard a noise in my bedroom. On entering I knew someone had been with my wife and the balcony door was open. I rushed out the balcony door and did not find anyone. As I looked down from the balcony I saw a man running out and he was dressing himself. I grabbed the fridge and threw it at him,That's how I strained my back"
 
 
The 2nd patient arrives looking as if he has been in a car wreck. The doctor said "My previous patient looked bad, but you look terrible.What the hell happened to you?"
He replied, "You know I have been unemployed for a while now .Today was the first day at my new job. I forgot to set my alarm and was running late. I was running out of the building, getting dressed at the same time, and you
won't believe it but I was hit by a fridge."
 
The 3rd patient arrives; he  looks even worse than the other two patients do. The doctor is shocked.
Again asks, "What the hell happened to youuuuuu.....?"

"Well I was sitting in a fridge, someone threw it from the 3rd floor”

Steven Spielberg



One Chinese walks into a bar in America late one night and he saw Steven Spielberg. As he was a great fan of his movies, he rushes over to him, and asks for his autograph.
Instead, Spielberg gives him a slap and says, "You Chinese people bombed our Pearl Harbor, get out of here."

The astonished Chinese man replied "It was not the Chinese who bombed your Pearl Harbor, it was the Japanese".

"Chinese, Japanese, Taiwanese, you're all the same," replied Spielberg.

In return, the Chinese gives Spielberg a slap and says "You sank the Titanic; my forefathers were on that ship."

Shocked, Spielberg replies, "It was the iceberg that sank the ship, not me."

The Chinese replies, "Iceberg, Spielberg, Carlsberg, you're all the same."
 
This particular joke won an award for the best joke in a competition in Britain

What if Indians lose patience.

Aforeign tourist hired a guide to take him around Delhi and Agra. At the Red Fort at Delhi, he admired the architecture and asked how many years it took to build.

Twenty years, replied the guide.
 

You Indians are a lazy lot, the tourist said. In my country, this could have
been built in five.


At Agra he admired the Taj's beauty and asked how many years it took to build.


Only ten years, said the guide.

The tourist retorted: You Indians are slow! We can construct such buildings in two-and-a-half.


In this fashion the tourist claimed that every building he admired could have been built in his country in quarter the time. Finally, when they reached the Qutab Minar, and the tourist asked what it was, the guide replied: I don't know. It wasn't there yesterday evening.

What browser are you on?

Me: “What browser are you on?”
Client: “Google.”
Me: “Google Chrome?”
Client: “No, just regular Google.”
Me: “That’s the site. I want to know the browser.”
Client: “Google.”
Me: “No.”
Client: “Look, we can have this conversation forever, man. But when I hit the internet logo, Google comes up!”
Me: “Okay…What does that “internet logo” look like?
Client: “…A fiery fox, I guess. But that’s irrelevant.”

Watch your mouth!

A patient complains to a famous psychologist: ‘Professor, I’ve been having
terrible obsessions for years, and no one has ever been able to help me.’
‘Who’s been treating you until now?’

‘Dr Lal Rathor.‘
‘I see. He’s an idiot. I’m curious to know what he advised you to do.’

‘To come and see you.’

Think decisive

 A Man was driving well above the speed limit when a police car suddenly emerged from behind, sirens blaring. Thinking he’d outpace the cop, the man pushed his accelerator to the floor. His car’s speed rose to sixty, then seventy, eighty, and ninety. Finally, the man thought, what the heck, and pulled over, ready to receive a speeding ticket.

The police officer got out, leaned over the man and said: ‘Listen, Mister, I have had a really lousy day, and I just want to go home. Give me a good excuse and I’ll let you go.’

The man thought for a moment and said: ‘Three weeks ago my wife ran off with a police officer. When I saw your car in my mirror, I thought you were that officer and were trying to give her back to me.’

No ticket.
