today I had to think about all the bad bits again and I'm having a bit of a racking sobs episode

so please make me laugh

Don't think there's a joke in the world that I can tel you that will make you feel any better cappucino, but if I could I would, I promise.

Wracking sobs are ok for now - so sorry you had to rake over all the bad bits.

While going through his wife’s dresser drawers, a farmer discovered three soybeans and an envelope containing $30 in cash. The farmer confronted his wife, and when asked about the curious items, she confessed:
“Over the years, I haven’t been completely faithful to you.”

“When I did fool around, I put a soybean in the drawer to remind myself of my indiscretion,” she explained.

The farmer admitted that he had not always been faithful either, and therefore, was inclined to forgive and forget her few moments of weakness.

“I’m curious though,” he said, “Where did the thirty dollars come from?”

“Oh that, ” his wife replied, “Well, when soybeans hit ten dollars a bushel, I sold out!”

Donald Rumsfeld is giving Bush his daily briefing
"yesterday 3 Brazlian soldiers were killed"
"oh my god thats awful" says Bush and breaks down crying

The Pentagon are amazed at his emotional outburst

After a while Bush turns to one of his advisors and says "how many is a Brazilian?"

In nineteenth century Oxford, a student was caught by one of the proctors (university officials responsible for discipline) arm in arm with a lady of ill repute. When challenged the student protested, 'She's my sister.'
The proctor objected 'Don't be ridiculous - this woman is a known prostitute!'
The student replied, 'Yes I know sir. Mother's terribly cut up about it.'

Here's Beety's joke:
With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment,
it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed this week

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote The Hokey kokey died peacefully at
the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin.

They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.
