Gassy Issue

18 Sep

Written words have a wonderful way of conveying the wrong thing. Heres a email we received from M’s Personal Assistant:

Dear All,

Mr. M will not be coming to the office because he has a back pain due to some gas problems

Regards, X

Heres what had happened to M. He had sprained his back trying to lift a full Gas Cylinder.

    Ree Double meaning guru!!

    One of such similar conversation btn myself and a friend

    My Friend: Today my mother called me early in the morning at 5
    Me: Why so early?
    My: Because I had brought their gas home and it got over there…
    For a sec, I paused!! then I relate it.

    sometime my MIL asks me, Gas off maadidya? she meant – Gas Stove off maadidya?
    🙂 🙂

    “He had sprained his back trying to lift a full Gas Cylinder”. Don’t believe it, it’s a cover-up.

    We Australians are very competitive and will run a competition on anything. We even have:

    Duck races
    Camel races
    Boat races without water (and boats made out of beer cartons)
    Ferret races
    Yabbie races (a yabbie is like a small freshwater crayfish)

    And, the best of all:

    WET T SHIRT COMPETITIONS – biggest boobs usually win
