A department store called ManMart offered women a service that let them come in and choose their perfect match. There was only one rule: if you passed up what was on offer on one floor, you could never go back to that level. An eager woman entered the elevator and pressed the button. When the doors opened on the first floor, the sign read, “These men all have jobs and love kids.” She passed on that option and went to the next floor. The sign up there said, “Handsome men with jobs who love kids.” Once again, she declined the offer. The sign on level three said, “Handsome men with jobs who love kids, cooking and housework.” Sounded good, but she moved on anyway. On the fourth floor the sign read, “Handsome men who are true romantics, have jobs, love kids, cooking and housework.” Yet again, no dice. The level five sign said, “Handsome men with jobs who are true romantics, love kids, love housework and don’t drink.” That was no good, either. On the sixth floor the sign read, “Hunky, handsome men with secure jobs who are true romantics, love kids and housework, don’t drink, have no bad habits and are financially secure.” Figuring that every floor was just getting better, she decided to continue up to the top. When the lift reached level seven, the doors wouldn’t open. Instead, a recording said, “Ladies, this is the last level and there are no men available here. It exists solely to prove that women are impossible to please. The elevator will now return you directly to the exit. Thanks for visiting ManMart.”

“Do you want the good news or the bad news?” the bloke said to his missus. “Better give me the bad news first,” the wife said. “Well,” said her hubby, “we’ve been advised that we’re so far behind with the payments on the house that we’re going to lose it. Both cars are being repossessed, we owe $100,000 on our credit cards and there’s two months of unpaid taxes on our salaries. Basically, we’re going to lose everything.” “Jesus!” said the wife. “What’s the good news?” “Our identities have been stolen.”

Mkele Mbembe was on holiday in Kenya after graduating from university. While hiking through the bush, he came across a young elephant with one leg raised in the air. The animal was distressed, so Mkele approached carefully. He inspected its foot and found a large thorn deeply embedded in it. As carefully as he could, Mkele worked the thorn out. The elephant turned and stared at him. For several tense moments Mkele stood frozen, thinking of nothing else but being trampled. Eventually, the beast trumpeted loudly, turned and walked away. Mkele never forgot that elephant. Twenty years later he was walking through a zoo with his teenage son. As they approached the elephant enclosure, one of the creatures turned and walked over to Mkele. It stared at him and lifted its foot off the ground, then put it down. The huge jumbo did that several times, then trumpeted loudly, all the while staring at Mkele. Remembering that earlier encounter, Mkele wondered if this was the same elephant. Summoning up his courage, he climbed the railing, entered the enclosure, walked up to the elephant and stared back in wonder. Suddenly, the elephant trumpeted again, wrapped its trunk around one of Mkele’s legs and swung him wildly back and forth into the railing, killing him. Probably wasn’t the same elephant.
