A "Mixed Type Conditional" Joke

A "Mixed Type Conditional" Joke

Valentina Tenedini

Two Ladies Talking in Heaven 

1st woman: Hi, Wanda!

2nd woman: Hi, Sylvia! How'd you die?

1st woman: I froze to death.

2nd woman: How horrible!

1st woman: It wasn't so bad. After I quit shaking from the cold, I began to get warm & sleepy, and finally died a peaceful death. What about you?

2nd woman: I died of a massive heart attack. I suspected that my husband was cheating, so I came home early to catch him in the act. But instead, I found him all by himself in the den watching TV.

1st woman: So, what happened?

2nd woman: I was so sure there was another woman there somewhere that I started running all over the house looking. I ran up into the attic and searched, and down into the basement. Then I went through every closet and checked under all the beds. I kept this up until I had looked everywhere, and finally I became so exhausted that I just keeled over with a heart attack and died.

1st woman: Too bad you did not look in the freezer - If you had, now we'd both still be alive' .

The Mum Qualification Exam - a true story

The Mum Qualification Exam - a true story

Valentina Tenedini

As I was walking with my youngest child she picked up something from the ground and was about to put it in her mouth when I quickly prevented her from doing so, telling her not to do such a thing again. "Why?" she asked, startled. "You don't know where that thing may come from, it is dirty and full of germs". I replied. My daughter commented: "Oh mum, you're so clever, how come you know all those things?" I immediately replied "Well, any mum does, it's part of the exam we take to become 'qualifed mother'. If you don't pass it, you cannot be a mum". We continued walking quietly for a couple of minutes over which my daughter pondered the information she had just been given.... "Oh, I see now! If you fail the exam then you can be a dad!" "That's right!" I replied smiling.

Obama and his Wife - a joke

 Obama and his Wife - a joke

Valentina Tenedini

Some say that the US President, Barak Obama, took his wife out to dinner one night and, wishing to do something unusual, picked up an ordinary restaurant, not a fancy one. While they were having dinner, the restaurant's owner reached the bodyguards and asked them to let him go to greet the president's wife, which he was given permission to do. Once the man had left, Obama asked Michelle: "Why was that man so eager to come and say hello to you?" His wife replied: "When I was young, he was in love with me for a long time." The president said: "Oh, that means that if you had married him, now you'd be the owner of this place!" Michelle replied: "No, honey ... If I had married that man, now he would be the current US president!"
