The award goes to 47 students taking the third-year statistics course at
Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, Canada, who all handed in the
same paper for a pre-Christmas assignment, each apparently believing that
only they would be clever enough to have found it somewhere for copying. They
will all fail the course and may be suspended.
Bonehead award three goes to a Chinese ship
captain, Captain Zheng, who narrowly missed two head-on collisions with other
ships while he steered his highly explosive tanker, holding 30,000 tons of
aviation fuel, up the English Channel in the WRONG direction, WITHOUT a
The French coast guard steered him to Dover whey they said they
hoped he would buy some maps.
He said he never sailed the English
Channel before, and without the maps, he didn't know where he was supposed to
position his tanker.
award four goes to two South African men who tried to pass themselves off as
real attorneys in a South African courtroom where they were representing a
man charged with assault. Apparently they thought they had found a way to
make some good money.
But their plan fell apart when they referred to the
judge as "your majesty," instead of "your honor," and when they asked the
judge what he meant by "previous convictions."
They've been arrested

Someone in our neighborhood put a huge sofa out by

There was a small town nestled in a valley which was powered by a
dam. One day, the dam broke and flooded the valley. Naturally everyone

A new preacher had just begun his sermon. He was a little nervous and
about ten minutes into the talk his mind went blank. He remembered some
advice they gave him in seminary school for when a situation like this
arose -- repeat your last point. Often this will help you remember
what should come next. So he gave it a try.
"Behold, I come
quickly," he said. Still his mind was blank. So he tried again, "Behold,
I come quickly!" Still nothing.
He tried once more, this time with
so much vehemence that he tripped over his microphone wire and fell off
the stage, right into the lap of a little old lady in the front row.
The young preacher was very embarrassed and tried to apologize,
and the woman replied, "That's all right, young man. It was my fault...I
should have gotten out of the way. You told me three times you were

Kelly Davies, 23, a resident of Las Vegas, was visiting
her in-laws in Los Angeles, and while there went to a nearby supermarket to pick
up some groceries. Several people noticed her sitting in her car with the
windows rolled up and with her eyes closed, with both hands behind the back of
her head. One customer who had been at the store for a while became concerned
and walked over to the car. He noticed that Kelly's eyes were now open, and she
looked -- very strange. He asked her if she was okay, and Kelly replied that
she'd been shot in the back of the head, and had been holding her brains in for
over an hour.
The man called the paramedics who broke into the car
because the doors were locked and Kelly refused to remove her hands from her
head. When they finally got in, they found that Kelly had a wad of bread dough
on the back of her head.
A Pillsbury biscuit canister had exploded from
the heat, making a loud noise that sounded like a gunshot, and the wad of dough
hit her in the back of her head. When she reached back to find out what it was,
she felt the dough and thought it was her brains. She had initially passed out,
but quickly recovered and tried to hold her brains in for over an hour until
someone noticed and came to her aid.
And, yes, Kelly is a blonde.
"Where to Place Them"
Take the prospective employees you are trying to
place and put them in a room with only a table and two chairs. Leave them
alone for two hours, without any instruction. At the end of that time, go
back and see what they are doing.
If they have taken the table apart,
put them in Engineering.
If they are counting the butts in the ashtray,
assign them to Finance.
If they are waving their arms and talking out
loud, send them to Consulting.
If they are talking to the chairs,
Personnel is a good spot for them.
If they are wearing green sunglasses
and need a haircut, Computer Information Systems is their niche.
the room has a sweaty odour, perhaps they're destined for the Help
If they mention what a good price we got for the table and
chairs, put them into Purchasing.
If they mention that hardwood
furniture DOES NOT come from rainforests, Public Relations would suit them
If they are sleeping, they are Management material.

If they don't even look up when you enter the room, assign them
If they try to tell you it's not as bad as it looks, send
them to Marketing.

One night in Paris, an American tourist dropped into a sidewalk cafe late one
night and, after a couple of drinks, realized he was the last person in the
bar except for a chap sleeping at one of the tables.
The man called
the proprietor over and asked for his bill.
"Would monsieur care for
another drink?" asked the Frenchman.
"No thanks, I imagine you want to
close up. Why don't you send that other fellow home?"
should," said the other. Then, with Gallic logic, he added, "But each time I
wake him up he asks for the bill and pays it again."
