Life and death
The vicar was preaching a powerful sermon concerning death and judgment. In the course of the sermon, he said: “Just think – all of you living in this parish will one day die.” At this, a man in the front pew began to laugh quietly. After the service the vicar demanded sternly what he had found so funny about his sermon. The man replied: “I was just so happy that I don’t live in this parish!
Daring students
“I’m tired of this routine existence,” said one university student to his friend. “Let’s do something extraordinary, startling, magnificent; something that will make our brains whirl and our hearts leap.”
“Okay,” said his friend. And so they studied.
Don’t cross the line
There is a line on the ocean where you lose a day after crossing it. There’s also a line on all busy roads, where you can lose a lot more if you cross it.

More real-life notes left for milkmen...
~ When you leave my milk, knock on my bedroom window and wake me because I want to turn my mattress and you could give me a hand.
~ Please knock. My TV’s broken down and I missed Coronation Street last night. Maybe we could talk about what happened over a cup of tea?
~ My daughter says she wants a milkshake. Do you do this before you deliver, or do I have to shake it at my end?
~ Please send me a form for cheap milk, as I have a baby two months old and did not know about it until a neighbour told me.
~ Sorry not to have paid your bill before, but my wife had a baby and I’ve been carrying it around in my pocket for weeks.
~ Milk is needed for the baby. Father is unable to supply it.
~ Please leave no milk today. When I say today I mean tomorrow, as I wrote this note yesterday.

Chicken rules
One day a new chicken was introduced to the farm. The duck, who was in charge, showed the new chicken around. “This is where you go to get fed, this is the water trough and that is the coop. Chickens hang out near the fence, us ducks near the pond and the geese near the gate. We’re pretty friendly but we keep to our own. Oh but whatever you do, DO NOT cross that road. You’ll never hear the end of it.”
