I deplore the C word. Won't stand for it to be said in my ear shot.
Over the years, we've had a few employees that have been quite fond of it and I've told them they're only allowed use that particular word on their birthdays.
I imagine I shocked the socks off a mate when I quoted Christopher Pyne in a text this week. (It was obviously his birthday when he appeared on the Today Show recently.) I've promised her a few Christoper Pyne jokes later this morning. So far I like this one.
A man died and went to Heaven. As he stood in front of the Pearly Gates he saw a huge wall of clocks behind him. He asked, 'What are all those clocks?'
St. Peter answered, 'Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on earth has a Lie-Clock. Every time you lie the hands on your clock move.'
'Oh', said the man. 'Whose clock is that?'
'That's Mother Teresa's', replied St. Peter. 'The hands have never moved, indicating that she never told a lie.'
'Incredible', said the man 'and whose clock is that one?'
St. Peter responded, 'That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have moved twice, telling us that Abraham told only two lies in his entire life.'
'Where's Christopher Pyne’s clock?' asked the man.
'Christopher's clock is in Jesus' office. He's using it as a ceiling fan.’
There's only so many political jokes you can read before you need a spell, so I'm having a break and taking stock. (This list was written by Pip Lincolne from Meet Me At Mikes)

So my dear friends, I'll wish you a happy weekend and leave you with another Christopher joke...
A man applying for a job at a Mildura lemon grove seemed to be far too qualified for the job.
The foreman frowned and said, "I have to ask you this; have you had any actual experience in picking lemons?"
He replied: "I've been divorced three times, bought a Pajero and I voted for Christopher Pyne."

You have such a way with words! LOVE those jokes, dig some more out will you! I was taken aback when I saw that footage, what a nob. Chicken poo, yuk! Just had to Google Cards Against Humanity, wish I had it to take up north with me, my sister and I would have a ball!
Those jokes are gold! Thanks for the giggle.

Love the picking lemons...
Mmmmmmm crumpety Christopher Pine - Ooooooopsy wrong one!
Oh dear, what a man 🙁
I love these taking stock posts. I gather from a few of the responses that you have a friend facing a huge battle. For what it's worth, I just wanted to send my love and strength. This too shall pass x
