Before we get to this weeks Friday Funnies I have a little favour to ask of all my readers. It’s to do with my first post of the year which is all about a convention I held and how to make millions blogging. As it turns out that post was pretty popular with Stumblers as it got 72 Stumbles. Not bad considering I only posted it a few days back. As for the other Social sites it didn’t do too well getting 3 tweets, 2 FaceBook likes and 4 Google +1′s. What I would love for you guys to do is to head on over there and get those numbers up. If I could get over 100 stumbles and increase the numbers on some of those other social sites I would be one happy Aussie blogger.
And now back to the business at hand, making you guys laugh. This next joke is all about sharing. You know, the world would be such a better place if we all learned to share more with others rather than coveting what they have and then going to war over it. The following is the perfect example of sharing.

A True Example Of What Sharing Is All About
The old man placed an order for one hamburger, French fries and a drink.
He unwrapped the plain hamburger and carefully cut it in half, placing one half in front of his wife.
He then carefully counted out the French fries, dividing them into two piles and neatly placed one pile in front of his wife.
He took a sip of the drink, his wife took a sip and then set the cup down between them . As he began to eat his few bites of hamburger, the people around them were looking over and whispering.
Obviously they were thinking, ‘That poor old couple – all they can afford is one meal for the two of them.’
As the man began to eat his fries a young man came to the table and politely offered to buy another meal for the old couple. The old man said, they were just fine – they were used to sharing everything
People closer to the table noticed the little old lady hadn’t eaten a bite. She sat there watching her husband eat and occasionally taking turns sipping the drink.
Again, the young man came over and begged them to let him buy another meal for them.
This time the old woman said ‘No, thank you, we are used to sharing everything.’
Finally, as the old man finished and was wiping his face neatly with the napkin, the young man again came over to the little old lady who had yet to eat a single bite of food and asked ‘What is it you are waiting for?’ Read the rest of this entry
