Female IT Experts

Now normally I wouldn't be brave enough to post something like this, but given it was sent to me by a real female IT Expert, I figure taking a free shot is in order....

One Man's Trash....

Tim Nobel and Sue Webster take piles of trash and make art into them... but sometimes the art isn't apparent until you see it in a different light.

The Report Card

A mother is driving a little girl to her friend's house for a play date.

"Mommy," the little girl asks, "how old are you?"

"Honey, you are not supposed to ask a lady her age," the mother replied. "It's not polite."

"OK", the little girl says, "How much do you weigh?"

"Now really," the mother says, "those are personal questions and are really none of your business."

Undaunted, the little girl asks, "Why did you and Daddy get a divorce?"

"That is enough questions, young lady, honestly!"

The exasperated mother walks away as the two friends begin to play.

"My Mom won't tell me anything about her," the little girl says to her friend.

"Well," says the friend, "all you need to do is look at her drivers' license It is like a report card, it has everything on it."

Later that night the little girl says to her mother, "I know how old you are, you are 32."

The mother is surprised and asks,

"How did you find that out?

“I also know that you weigh 140 pounds.”

The mother is past surprised and shocked now. “How in heaven’s name did you find that out?”

“And,” the little girl says triumphantly, “I know why you and daddy got a divorce.”

“Oh really?” the mother asks. “Why?”

“Because you got an F in sex.“

Irish Joke

Paddy and Mick find themselves out of work.

Paddy goes into the unemployment agency and tells the clerk that he's a knicker stitcher - he sews the elastic onto women's knickers. The clerk looks up the job category and sees that it ranks as unskilled labour, and pays Paddy 80 pounds unemployment benefits and sends him on his way.

Then Mick goes in. He tells the clerk that he's a diesel fitter. The clerk looks up the computer, sees that that is a skilled job, and gives him 160 pounds and sends him on his way.

Later Paddy meets up with Mick and on finding out Mick is being paid twice what he is, storms back into the agency to complain. The clerk explains that a diesel fitter is skilled labour and rates a higher unemployment benefit.

"What skilled?!?" roars Paddy, I sew the elastic onto the knickers, then Paddy sticks them on his head and says "Diesel Fitter!"

Boom. Boom. I have a hundred of 'em....

Maths Homework

# 2 son was working through his year 7 maths homework.

He said: "Dad, how do I do this one?"

He was being asked to divide various object up into fifths by drawing lines on the provided objects:

1) A rectangel. No problem, measure the long side (50), divide by five (10) and draw in the lines every 10 units.

2) A circle. A bit harder, divide 360 degrees by five (72) and draw the lines out from the centre at 72 degreee increments.

3) An irregular right angle triangle, sides are 3, 4 and 5. Ummmmmmm.

4) A regular hexagon. Errrrrrrrrrrr......

*starts to wonder how he would have in fact gone in "Are you smarter that a 5th grader?"*

Ok, I'm going to phone a friend - anyone give me a clue how to approach 3 and 4?

You have to wonder...

...about some parents.
