Haven't had one of these in a while...... share your recent funnies.
I put this in a different thread where the issue of PC came up, and decided to start this thread.
Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the position that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd from the clean end.

Yup. The racists and other chauvinists should clearly be left alone - they know better, right?
Not that you can't fall over forwards as well as backwards, but I can live easier with a bit of excess PC than with racism and its siblings.

Quoting ANCFlyer (Reply 2): I don't see Political Correctness as the cure for racism.
What's usually ridiculed as PC (and occasionally with reason) is the extension of the very much necessary fight against racism and discrimination beyond a certain point. It is not the same thing, but also not separable from it either.

GENERAL EQUATIONS & STATISTICS

To be happy with a man, you must understand him a lot and love him a little.
To be happy with a woman, you must love her a lot and not try to understand her at all.
Married men live longer than single men do,
but married men are a lot more willing to die.
PROPENSITY TO CHANGE
A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't.
A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, and she does.
A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.
HOW TO STOP PEOPLE FROM BUGGING YOU ABOUT GETTING MARRIED
Old aunts used to come up to me at weddings, poking me in the ribs and cackling, telling me, "You're next." They stopped after I started doing the same thing to them at funerals.

Little Suzy comes home from school and tells her Mom she found out where we get babies. She says "you and Daddy get naked ,and you kiss his penis until it gets hard. Then you put it all the way in your mouth,and white stuff comes out and goes in your stomach. Then a baby grows there." Her Mom replies " Honey I don't know how to tell this,but that's how we get JEWELRY,not babies."

There was a study at the UN. The question asked was:
"Would you please give your opinion about the food shortage in the rest of the world?"
The survey was a huge failure.
In Africa they did not know what 'food' meant.
In Western Europe, they did not know what 'shortage' meant.
In Eastern Europe they did not know what 'opinion' meant.
In South America they did not know what 'please' meant.
And in the U.S. they did not know what 'the rest of the world' meant.

A Scotsman phones a dentist to enquire about the cost for a tooth extraction.
Ã‚Â£85 for an extraction, sir" the dentist replied.
Ã‚Â£85!!! Huv ye no'got anythin' cheaper?"
"That's the normal charge," said the dentist .
"Whit aboot if ye didnae use any anaesthetic?"
"That's unusual, sir, but I could do it and knock Ã‚Â£15 off.
"Whit aboot if ye used one of your dentist trainees and still without an anaesthetic?"
"I can't guarantee their professionalism and it'll be painful, but the price could drop to Ã‚Â£40".
"How aboot if ye make it a trainin' session, ave yer student do the extraction with the other students watchin' and learnin'?"
It'll be good for the students", mulled the dentist. "and it's going to be very traumatic, but I'll charge you Ã‚Â£5."
"Och, now yer talkin' laddie! It's a deal," said the Scotsman. "Can ye confirm an appointment for the wife next Tuesday then?"
A man walks into a pub, and sits at the bar with a drink. A few minutes later another bloke walks in "Hi Dave" says the barman. As Dave sits down, all the other people in the pub say "Hi Dave". As new customers walk in, they all greet Dave before getting a drink.
The bloke asks the barman "Is he one of your regulars then?" "Nah," says the barman, "First time he's come in, but everyone knows Dave...don't you?" bemused the man says "No, don't know him at all." The barman says "Rubbish...go over and say hello, you MUST know him...Dave knows everyone in the world."
So the man goes over and says "Hi mate, sorry to interrupt but the barman just said that you know everyone in the world...is that true?" Dave says "Yeah, true enough"
So the bloke says "Rubbish!! Nobody can know everyone in the world"
"OK," says Dave. "Name me any 3 people, and I bet I know them".
"Fine." says the bloke. "Geroge W Bush, Gordon Brown, and The Pope."
"Eaaasy!" says Dave. "Come with me."
So they head off down the airport and jump a flight to Washington. As the checkin staff know Dave, they get a 1st class upgrade, and all the cabin crew bring them extra drinks for the flight as he's a personal friend. No need to check Dave's passport at customs, they already know him, and they're off to the Whitehouse.
The chief of staff comes down to greet them "Hiya Dave, same as usual?" Dave says "No not this time, this chappy doesn't believe I know everyone in the world, so I just need a chat with Dubya if he's got a minute?"
"Not a problem Dave, you know he's always got time for you."
5 minutes later they're in the Oval Office having a coffee with the President.
"Well," the man says "I'm impressed. But this proves nothing."
"I know," says Dave. "Three you said, three you get. George, can I borrow Air Force One for a few hours...?"
"No problems" says GWB. "Just don't bloody scratch it like last time."
So they jet back into London on Air Force One, on the flight Dave rings a mate and arranges a limo pick up to take them to no.10. Upon arrival they're greeted as before, and ushered in to see the PM. After a quick cuppa they're back out on the street.
"Right" says Dave "Vatican next"
Back onto Air Force One, and they head over to the Vatican, only to find that the square is packed with people. As they join the back of the crowd, one of the chaps there says "Hi Dave, come to see the Pope's speech have you?"
"Nah," says Dave "This chap doesn't believe I know everyone in the world so I'm heading up for a quick word with Benny".
"Better be quick then" says the chap, "He's on in 5."
Dave turns to the bloke from the pub and says "Right, you wait here, I'll nip up and say hello, do a quick wave from the balcony then we'll get back to the pub. 5 minutes." And away he goes, stops for a quick natter to see how the security guards wife is doing and pass on his regards, then up to see The Pope. As promised, he steps out on the balcony, waves to the crowd below, and then heads back down.
When he gets back to where they were stood, he finds an ambulance loading the chap into the back on a trolley.
"Bloody hell!" Says Dave, "What happened!"
"Well Dave," says the Paramedic, "He had a heart attack...he's coming round though so you can ask him yourself"
Dave gets in the back and says "You silly bugger! Told you I know everyone, surely it shouldn't have been such a shock after Dubya and Gordon..?"
"No," says the bloke, "it wasn't that....just when you and the Pope stepped out on the balcony, some fella behind me said "Who the f**ks that stood next to Dave..."
