Joke Thread (25 AUGUST 05)

Dark Helmet

Recommended Posts

A certain young man started a new job in a city. He would drive every day to work, as would most of his collegues.

The drive was a long one - he had to get into the city through a very congested road tunnel, and it didn't take long for before he had decied to start a ridesharing initiative with his collegues.

But within a week of starting it, he found it caused severe pains in his wrists. They seemed to happen while he was driving through the tunnel - he was fine outside the tunnel - but because the tunnel was so busy, they often had to spend some time in there, and it was quite a painful experience for the young man.

He saw a doctor the following weekend, and he was told that he had a problem that is quite common nowadays: carpool tunnel syndrome.

Subject: The Scouting Trip

Our Scoutmaster told us to write to our parents in case you saw the

flood on TV and are worried. We are okay. Only one of our tents and 2

sleeping bags got washed away. Luckily, none of us got drowned because

we were all up on the mountain looking for Adam when it happened.

Oh yes, please call Adam's mother and tell her he is okay. He can't

write because of the cast. I got to ride in one of the search and rescue

jeeps. It was neat.. We never would have found Adam in the dark if it

hadn't been for the lightning.

Scoutmaster Keith got mad at Adam for going on a hike alone without

telling anyone. Adam said he did tell him, but it was during the fire so

he probably didn't hear him. Did you know that if you put gas on a fire,

the gas will blow up? The wet wood didn't burn, but one of the tents did

and also some of our clothes. Mathew is going to look weird until his

hair grows back.

We will be home on Saturday if Scoutmaster Keith gets the bus fixed. It

wasn't his fault about the wreck. The brakes

worked okay when we left. Scoutmaster Keith said that with a bus that

old you have to expect something to break down; that's

probably why he can't get insurance. We think it's a neat bus. He

doesn't care if we get it dirty, and if it's hot, sometimes he lets us

ride on the fenders. It gets pretty hot with 45 people in a bus. He let

us take turns riding in the trailer until the highway patrol man stopped

and talked to us.

Scoutmaster Keith is a neat guy. Don't worry, he is a good driver. In

fact, he is teaching Jessie how to drive on themountain roads where

there isn't any traffic. All we ever see up there

are logging trucks.

This morning all of the guys were diving off the rocks and swimming out

in the lake. Scoutmaster Keith wouldn't let me because I can't swim, and

Adam was afraid he would sink because of his cast, so he let us take the

canoe across the lake. It was great. You can still see some of the trees

under the water from the flood.

Scoutmaster Keith isn't crabby like some scoutmasters. He didn't even

get mad about the life jackets. He has to spend a lot of time working on

the bus so we are trying not to cause him any trouble.

Guess what? We have all passed our first aid merit badges. When Andrew

dived into the lake and cut his arm, we got to see how a tourniquet

works. Steven and I threw up, but Scoutmaster Keith said it probably was

just food poisoning from the leftover

chicken. He said they got sick that way with food they ate in prison.

I'm so glad he got out and became our scoutmaster. He said he sure

figured out how to get things done better while he was

doing his time.

By the way, what is a pedal-file?

I have to go now. We are going to town to mail our letters and buy some

more beer. Don't worry about anything. We are fine.

Love, Chris
