Who dunnit...
Old one but topical, finish reading it completely
After Quasimodo's death, the bishop of the Cathedral of Notre Dame sent word through the streets of Paris that a new bell ringer was needed.

The bishop decided that he would conduct the interviews personally and went up into the belfry to begin the screening process.

After observing several applicants demonstrate their skills, he had decided to call it a day.

Just then, an armless man approached him and announced that he was there to apply for the bell ringer's job.

The bishop was incredulous. "You have no arms!"

"No matter," said the man. "Observe!" And he began striking the bells with his face, producing a beautiful melody on the carillon. The bishop listened in astonishment; convinced he had finally found a replacement for Quasimodo.

But suddenly, rushing forward to strike a bell, the armless man tripped and plunged headlong out of the belfry window to his death in the street below.

The stunned bishop rushed to his side.

When he reached the street, a crowd had gathered around the fallen figure, drawn by the beautiful music they had heard only moments before. As they silently parted to let the bishop through, one of them asked,

"Bishop, who was this man?".


"I don't know his name," the bishop sadly replied,


"but his face rings a bell"



WAIT! WAIT! There's more .. . ..


The following day, despite the sadness that weighed heavily on his heart due to the unfortunate death of the armless campanologist, the bishop continued his interviews for the bell ringer of Notre Dame. The first man to approach him said,

"Your Excellency, I am the brother of the poor armless wretch that fell to his death from this very belfry yesterday. I pray that you honour his life by allowing me to replace him in this duty.".

The bishop agreed to give the man an audition, and, as the armless man's brother stooped to pick up a mallet to strike the first bell, he groaned, clutched at his chest, twirled around, and died on the spot.

Two monks, hearing the bishop's cries of grief at this second tragedy, rushed up the stairs to his side.

"What has happened?

Who is this man?" the first monk asked breathlessly.

"I don't know his name," sighed the distraught bishop, but..."


"He's a dead ringer for his brother"

Hear about the new restaurant called Karma?

There’s no menu: You get what you deserve.

A turtle is crossing the road when he’s mugged by two snails. When the police show up, they ask him what happened. The shaken turtle replies, “I don’t know. It all happened so fast.”

In surgery for a heart attack, a middle-aged woman has a vision of God by her bedside. “Will I die?” she asks.

God says, “No. You have 30 more years to live.”

With 30 years to look forward to, she decides to make the best of it. So since she’s in the hospital, she gets breast implants, liposuction, a tummy tuck, hair transplants, and collagen injections in her lips. She looks great! The day she’s discharged, she exits the hospital with a swagger, crosses the street, and is immediately hit by an ambulance and killed. Up in heaven, she sees God. “You said I had 30 more years to live,” she complains.

“That’s true,” says God.

“So what happened?” she asks.

God shrugs. “I didn’t recognize you.”

A ventriloquist is performing with his dummy on his lap. He’s telling a dumb-blonde joke when a young platinum-haired beauty jumps to her feet. “What gives you the right to stereotype blondes that way?” she demands. “What does hair color have to do with my worth as a human being?”

Flustered, the ventriloquist begins to stammer out an apology.

“You keep out of this!” she yells. “I’m talking to that little jerk on your knee!”

The village blacksmith finally found an apprentice willing to work hard for long hours. The blacksmith instructed the boy, “When I take the shoe out of the fire, I’ll lay it on the anvil; and when I nod my head, you hit it with this hammer.”

The apprentice did just as he was told. Now he’s the village blacksmith.

Paddy asks, “Mick, how did you get on at the faith healer meeting last night?"
Mick replies, “He was absolute rubbish.
Even the fella in the wheelchair got up and walked out !”

THE KING WANTED TO GO FISHING, AND HE ASKED THE ROYAL WEATHER FORECASTER
THE FORECAST FOR THE NEXT FEW HOURS.

THE PALACE METEOROLOGIST ASSURED HIM THAT THERE WAS NO CHANCE OF RAIN.

SO THE KING AND THE QUEEN WENT FISHING. ON THE WAY HE MET A MAN WITH A
FISHING POLE RIDING ON A DONKEY, AND HE ASKED THE MAN IF THE FISH WERE BITING.
THE FISHERMAN SAID, "YOUR MAJESTY, YOU SHOULD RETURN TO THE PALACE!
IN JUST A SHORT TIME I EXPECT A HUGE RAIN STORM."

THE KING REPLIED: "I HOLD THE PALACE METEOROLOGIST IN HIGH REGARD.
HE IS AN EDUCATED AND EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONAL. BESIDES, I PAY HIM
WELL.. HE GAVE ME A VERY DIFFERENT FORECAST. I TRUST HIM."

SO THE KING CONTINUED ON HIS WAY.
HOWEVER, IN A SHORT TIME A TORRENTIAL RAIN FELL FROM THE SKY. THE
KING AND QUEEN WERE TOTALLY SOAKED.

FURIOUS, THE KING RETURNED TO THE PALACE AND GAVE THE ORDER TO FIRE
THE METEOROLOGIST.

THEN HE SUMMONED THE FISHERMAN AND OFFERED HIM THE PRESTIGIOUS
POSITION OF ROYAL FORECASTER.

THE FISHERMAN SAID, "YOUR MAJESTY, I DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT
FORECASTING. I OBTAIN MY INFORMATION FROM MY DONKEY. IF I SEE MY
DONKEY'S EARS DROOPING, IT MEANS WITH CERTAINTY THAT IT WILL RAIN."

SO THE KING HIRED THE DONKEY.

AND SO BEGAN THE PRACTICE OF HIRING DUMB ASSES TO WORK IN
INFLUENTIAL POSITIONS OF GOVERNMENT.

THE PRACTICE IS UNBROKEN TO THIS DAY.


:D
