    Beethoven Joke. 4th Feb 06 at 7:47 PM
    A tourist in Vienna is going through a graveyard and all of a sudden he hears some music. No one is around, so he starts searching for the source. He finally locates the origin and finds it is coming from a grave with a headstone that reads: Ludwig van Beethoven, 1770-1827. Then he realizes that the music is the Ninth Symphony and it is being played backward ! Puzzled, he leaves the graveyard and persuades a friend to return with him.
    By the time they arrive back at the grave, the music has changed. This time it is the Seventh Symphony, but like the previous piece, it is being played backward. Curious, the men agree to consult a music scholar. When they return with the expert, the Fifth Symphony is playing, again backward. The expert notices that the symphonies are being played in the reverse order in which they were composed, the 9th, then the 7th, then the 5th.

    By the next day the word has spread and a throng has gathered around the grave. They are all listening to the Second Symphony being played backward. Just then the graveyard's caretaker ambles up to the group. Someone in the crowd asks him if he has an explanation for the music. "Don't you get it?" the caretaker says incredulously.
    "He's decomposing!"

    If only everything in life was as reliable...AS ME !!

    I was out with friends in Bristol the other night and got chatting to an American chap whilst I was waiting at the bar. He told me he was visiting England with his wife and said she was a Native American whose tribal name was Five horses.

    I asked him what her name meant and he said, nag, nag, nag, nag, nag.
    I married my cousin. I had to...
    I don't have a sister.

    All my screwdrivers are cordless.

    The little native American Indian boy asks his Dad, "How do you choose our names ?"

    His dad explains that tradition dictates that a child is named after the first thing the mother sees when she emerges from the birthing teepee. "That's why your brother is called Majestic Eagle Soaring, and your sister is called Peaceful River Flowing. Why do you ask, Two Dogs Fuc*ing ?".

    Harry and Tom are two shipwrecked sailors in a lifeboat, when an old lamp comes bobbing past. Tom grabs the lamp, rubs it and a Genie appears.
    "I can only give you one wish," says the genie "Another man used two yesterday then died of a heart attack, what do you wish for?"

    Harry is thinking, but Tom, a heavy drinker, blurts out "Turn the sea into beer!"

    POOOF!! The sea is beer and the genie vanishes, job done.

    "That's great!" says Harry "Now we have to pee in the boat!"
    I think this job really needs
    a much bigger hammer.

    A man reports his wife missing to the police. A couple of days later there's a knock at the door, and a uniformed officer asks if he can come in.

    "Sir", he says, "It is my sad duty to inform you that your wife's body was found in the harbour today. When the divers recovered the body, there were 6 lobsters clinging to it. This may sound insensitive, but legally the lobsters belong to you - what would you like to do with them ?".

    "Well", says the man thoughtfully ..... "Give 3 to me, you take 3, and set her again tonight".
