The Green Thing

In the queue at Tesco, the cashier told an older woman that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.

The woman apologized to her and explained, "We didn't have the "green thing" back in my day."

The cashier responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation never cared enough to save our environment."

She was right -- our generation didn't have the "green thing" in its day......or....?

Pooh Goes Apeshit

Everything was rather quiet in the hundred acre wood. The trees whispered to each other as the wind rustled their leaves. Under a large oak tree, there lived Pooh bear. From inside Pooh's house, there came a steady bang...bang... bang!, that was making his honey jars rattle on the sideboard. The light came through the window, and in the evening sun Pooh raised the axe once more and brought it down on the tattered remains of Christopher Robin.
"Why...won't... he...fit..." puffed Pooh to himself as the axe came down once more.

Quotes by Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein was one of the greatest minds ever, but still had a funny side :

  • “The secret of creativity is knowing how to hide your sources.”
  • “Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. THAT'S relativity.”
  • “If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it?”
  • “I don't know, I don't care, and it doesn't make any difference!”
