Psychology 101 - This Is Brilliant!! (Simple truth)
If you start with a cage containing five monkeys and inside the
cage, hang a banana on a string from the top and then you place
a set of stairs under the banana, before long a monkey will go to the
stairs and climb toward the banana.
As soon as he touches the stairs, you spray all the monkeys
With cold water.
After a while another monkey makes an attempt with same result
... all the monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Pretty soon
when another monkey tries to climb the stairs, the other monkeys
will try to prevent it.
Now, put the cold water away.
Remove one monkey from the cage and replace it with a new one.
The new monkey sees the banana and attempts to climb the
stairs. To his shock, all of the other monkeys beat the **** out
After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to
climb the stairs he will be assaulted.
Next, remove another of the original five monkeys, replacing it
with a new one.
The newcomer goes to the stairs and is attacked. The previous
newcomer takes part in the punishment...... with enthusiasm,
because he is now part of the "team".
Then, replace a third original monkey with a new one, followed
by the fourth, then the fifth. Every time the newest monkey takes
to the stairs, he is attacked.
Now, the monkeys that are beating him up have no idea why they
were not permitted to climb the stairs. Neither do they know why
they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey.
Finally, having replaced all of the original monkeys, none of
the remaining monkeys will have ever been sprayed with cold water.
Nevertheless, not one of the monkeys will try to climb the
stairway for the banana.
Why, you ask? Because in their minds...that is the way it has
This, my friends, is how the Legislature, Parliament & Europe Union operate...
and this is why, from time to time:
ALL of the monkeys need to be REPLACED AT THE SAME TIME.
Makes sense to me!
It was entertainment night at the Senior Citizens' Centre. After the singalong with Alice at the piano, the main event of Claude the Hypnotist commenced.
"I am going to put everyone into a trance at the same time - everyone".
He drew a gold pocket watch and chain from his waistcoat and started to let it swing slowly like a pendulum.
"This is a very valuable watch and has been in my family for decades. Now, keep watching the watch - keep watching the watch.........."
One hundred and fifty pairs of eyes followed the watch as the room fell into complete silence.
Suddenly, the watch-chain broke, and the watch dropped to the floor and smashed.
"S**t", cried Claude.
It took three weeks to clean the room, and Claude was never invited to perform again.
Don't mess with old people
George, an elderly man, was going up to bed when his wife told him that he'd left the light on in the garden shed, which she could see from the bedroom window.
George opened the back door to go turn off the light but saw that there were people in the shed stealing things.
He phoned the police, who asked, "Is someone in your house?" and he said no.
Then they said that all patrols were busy, and that he should simply lock his door and an officer would be along when available.
George said, "Okay," hung up, counted to 30, and phoned the police again.
"Hello. I just called you a few seconds ago because there were people in my shed. Well, you don't have to worry about them now because I've just shot all the sons of bitches!" Then he hung up.
Within five minutes three police cars, an Armed Response unit, and an ambulance showed up at the George's residence. Of course, the police caught the burglars red-handed.
One of the policemen said to George, "I thought you said that you'd shot them!"
George said, "I thought you said there was nobody available.
A Solicitor parked his brand new Porsche in front of the office to show it off to his colleagues.
As he was getting out of the car, a truck came speeding along too close to the kerb and took off the door before zooming off.
More than a little distraught, the Solicitor grabbed his mobile and called the police.
Five minutes later, the police arrive. Before the policeman had a chance to ask any questions, the man started screaming hysterically: “My Porsche, my beautiful silver Porsche is ruined. No matter how long it's at the panel beaters, it'll simply never be the same again!”
After the man finally finished his rant, the policeman shook his head in disgust.
“I can't believe how materialistic you bloody Solicitors are.” he said. ”You lot are so focused on your possessions that you don't notice anything else in your life.”
“How can you say such a thing at a time like this?” sobbed the Porsche owner.
The policeman replied: “Didn't you realise that your arm was torn off when the truck hit you?”
The Solicitor looked down in horror.
“****ing h**l!” he screamed. “Where's my Rolex?”
A blonde was speeding, and pulled over. The PC getting out of the Patrol Car was also a blonde. "I'm sorry, Officer, I know I was speeding, but I am late for my hair appointment." Stated the blonde. "Well I am happy to see you appreciate the offence, now if I can just have a look at your Licence?". The blonde gave the PC a blank look. "It is about so big, and has your photo on it." Added the PC being helpful. After a little rummaging in her handbag, the blonde produced a compact mirror, and handed it to the PC, who looked at it and said "Oh, I didn't realize you were also on the job. Carry on!"
The Traffic Lights turned to red with a learner driver in a BSM car at the front.
Lights changed to Green, There was a lot of noise coming from the BSM cars gears, but NO forward movement.
Lights changed back to red before she could move.
Traffic further back in the Queue started to hoot.
As it happened the vehicle immediately behind the BSM car was a Police Traffic car equipped with Public Address loud speakers. So one of the police officers made an announcement asking drivers to be patient as there was a BSM L driver at the front of the Q.
The Lights then changed to Green. The Police Officer still had the mike switched on, next thing to be heard was " Look what the silly b itch has done now, she has found Reverse gear and hit our car"

"Its not just one car," said Philip. "Its hundreds of them!'
A man and his wife are awakened at 3 o'clock in the morning by a loud pounding on the door.The man gets up and goes to the door where a drunken stranger standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push.
'No chance' says the husband 'it's 3 o'clock in the morning.' and slams the door and returns to bed.
'Who was that?' asks his wife.
'Just some drunk asking for a push,' he answered.
'Did you help him?' she asks.
'No I didn't, its 3 in the morning and it pouring out.'
'Well, you have a short memory,' says his wife. 'Can't you remember 3 months ago when we broke down and those guys helped us?'
'I think you should help him and be ashamed of yourself.'
The man does what he's told. Gets dressed, and goes out in the pouring rain. He calls out into the dark. 'Hello, are you still there?.
'Yes? comes back the answer.
'Do you still need a push?'
'Yes, please.' comes the reply from the dark.
'Where are you?' asks the husband.
'Over here, on the swing,' replies the drunk.
