The European Commission has just announced an agreement whereby English will be the official language of the European Union rather than German, which was the other possibility.

As part of the negotiations, the British Government conceded that English spelling had some room for improvement and has accepted a 5- year phase-in plan that would become known as "Euro-English".


In the first year, "s" will replace the soft "c".

Sertainly, this will make the sivil servants jump with joy.

The hard "c" will be dropped in favour of "k".

This should klear up konfusion, and keyboards kan have one less letter.

There will be growing publik
enthusiasm in the sekond year when the troublesome "ph" will be replaced with "f".

This will make words like fotograf 20% shorter.

In the 3rd year, publik akseptanse of the new spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage where more komplikated changes are possible.

Governments will enkourage the removal of double letters which have always ben a deterent to akurate speling.

Also, al wil agre that the horibl mes of the silent "e" in the languag is disgrasful and it should go away.

By the 4th yer people wil be reseptiv to steps such as replasing "th" with "z" and "w" with "v".

During ze fifz yer, ze unesesary "o" kan be dropd from vords
kontaining "ou" and after ziz fifz yer, ve vil hav a reil sensi bl riten styl.

Zer vil be no mor trubl or difikultis and evrivun vil find it ezi TU understand ech oza. Ze drem of a united urop vil finali kum tru.


Und efter ze fifz yer, ve vil al be speking German like zey vunted in ze forst plas.

If zis mad you smil, pleas pas on to oza pepl.

A new strain of lice is going around that is resistant to conventional treatments.
This has left scientists scratching their heads.

(Apologies if this is a repeat)

A notorious criminal goes to the local Roman Catholic priest and says, "Father, I will give $1,000,000 to your church if you will say the eulogy for my brother, but you must make him out to be a saint."

The priest thinks for a long moment, and agrees.

At the service, the priest says, "Before us lies a man who was a murderer, kidnapper and extortionist. He lived every waking moment plotting some new atrocity against society. It is to our great relief that he no longer lives among us."

"But, compared to his brother, this man was a saint!"

Her sharing herself equally with everyone would have been a red flag.
Her graduating high school on the “five year plan” would have been another.

A large group of ISIS soldiers are moving down a road when they hear a voice call from behind a sand-dune. "One Marine is better than ten ISIS fighters". The ISIS commander quickly sends 10 of his best soldiers over the dune whereupon a gun-battle breaks out and continues for a few minutes, then silence.

The voice then calls out "One Marine is better than one hundred ISIS fighters". Furious, the ISIS commander sends his next best 100 troops over the dune and instantly a huge gun fight commences, after 10 minutes of battle, again silence.

The voice calls out again "One Marine is better than one thousand ISIS fighters". The enraged ISIS Commander musters one thousand fighters and sends them across the dune. Cannon, rocket and machine gun fire ring out as a huge battle is fought, then silence.

Eventually one wounded ISIS fighter crawls back over the dune and with his dying words tells his commander, "Don't send any more men, its a trap, there’s two of them!
