[nilesfunnies] Accurate astrology

I know many of you don't believe in astrology,
but that's because you read astrology written by charlatans. When written
by a master, astrology speaks with the voice of truth. :)

This was published about 20 years ago by The Paper House Ltd.

(Apologies to anyone who doesn't find this funny)

22 December - 19 January.
You are an upholder of tradition and authority. This is because you lack
imagination and creativity. You cannot take honest criticism. Not even
from your mother. Most prison warders are Capricorns.

20 January - 18 February.
You are an amiable person who likes to be popular. You need to be around
others because you cannot stand yourself. When alone, you do weird things
to your body. Sex change operations are common among Aquarians.

19 February - 20 March.
You are a kind and gentle person. Your sensitive nature has given you the
reputation of being a pansy and a creep. Your lack of ambition is directly
related to your lack of talent. Pisces make good ushers.

21 March - 19 April.
You have great energy and are always enthusiastic. Your vivaciousness is
nauseating to others. You concentrate on future success to avoid
confronting your past and present failures. You have strong relationships
with people much younger than yourself.

20 April - 20 May.
You are steadfast, even stubborn in your ways. People who know you well
describe you as a pighead. You enjoy music but the only thing you can play
is a radio. You are a communist.

21 May - 20 June.
You are exuberant and enjoy expressing yourself. Your friends think of you
as a busy-body and a bore. You brag about your versatility but deep down
you know you can do nothing well. Most Geminis are unemployed.

21 June - 22 July.
You are a very patient person. You can fall asleep waiting for things to
happen. You have a keen memory and often recite boring, obscure things to
your few friends. Cancers are easily influenced and many have actually
drowned when told to go jump in the lake.

23 July - 22 August.
You are a very proud and trusting person. Others are constantly taking
advantage of you. You do not realize what is happening to you because
basically you are very stupid. You are the laughing stock of any group.

23 August - 22 September.
You are very methodical and like things in order. On the other hand, your
personal appearance is usually a mess. You think of yourself as
discriminating, while others think of you as cheap and selfish. You are

23 September - 22 October.
You are very affectionate and sympathetic towards others. You enjoy
sobbing. You talk a great deal about justice, but no one trusts you. Most
Librans are alcoholics and dope fiends. People look at you with pity.

23 October - 21 November.
You are a very domineering and opinionated person. You do not care who you
step on to get to the top. You laugh during funerals. Most Scorpios are
shot in the back.

22 November - 21 December.
You have a vivid imagination and are always trying new things. Your
friends think you are a pervert. Honesty is so important to you that you
even admit to doing incredibly dumb things. Nudists are almost always

[nilesfunnies] Fw: At the Shopping Centre

At the Shopping Centre
Man approaches a young pretty woman and says

"excuse me lady, I have looked everywhere but can't find my wife. Do you
mind talking to me for a few seconds.."

Lady replies: "..sure, but how will that help?.."

Man: "It works every time. The minute I start talking to a pretty young
lady, she appears out of nowhere.."


FRIENDS of rogue trader Jerome Kerviel last night blamed his $7 billion
losses on unbearable levels of stress brought on by a punishing 30 hour week.
Kerviel was known to start work as early as nine in the morning and still
be at his desk at five or even five-thirty, often with just an hour and a
half for lunch.

One colleague said: "He was, how you say, une workaholique. I have a
family and a mistress so I would leave the office at around 2pm at the
latest, if I wasn't on strike.

"But Jerome was tied to that desk. One day I came back to the office
at 3pm because I had forgotten my stupid little hat, and there he was, fast
asleep on the photocopier.

"At first I assumed he had been having sex with it, but then I
remembered he'd been working for almost six hours."

As the losses mounted, Kerviel tried to conceal his bad trades by covering
them with an intense red wine sauce, later switching to delicate pastry

At one point he managed to dispose of dozens of transactions by hiding them
inside vol-au-vent cases and staging a fake reception.

Last night a spokesman for Sócíété
Générálé denied that Kerviel was overworked, insisting he
lost the money after betting that the French were about to stop being rude,
lazy, arrogant b ** tards.

Can you smell petrol?
No, I can't even smell my own name

I once went on a car manufacturer's course with a mechanic from a garage somewhere in Scotland.
He reckoned they had a shield and motto above their workshop door.
The shield had crossed arms on it with a spanner in one hand and a condom in the other. The motto was 'If you can't fix it, f**k it.'
