An 8 year old girl went to the office with her father on ‘Take your kid to work Day’.
As they walked round the office she started crying and getting cranky.
Her father asked what was wrong.
As the staff gathered round she sobbed loudly, “Daddy, where are all the clowns you said you worked with?”

When my nephew was little, his mum took him to work on one of those days. He walked into the office, looked around, pointed at someone and said, "Hey mum, is that the fat, baldy man nobody likes?"

Sorry, didnt quote the post: By

This is such a quintessentially-Fortean example of Applied SciFi psychology that we shouldn't really even find this funny. So I'm going to say that I do. And I don't





Ah, so Hitler was right then

Left wing, actually.
Also, Mussolini started out as a Marxist.
It doesn't really matter.

Political Left and Right are obsolete labels

The only question that matters is whether you are a totalitarian (I.e. you want a bigger state and less personal freedom) or a libertarian (smaller state and more individual freedom).

I tend towards the latter.

Eh? National Socialism (ie Nazi =Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei) was/is Fascism, which surely is extreme right-wing?

(Whilst International Socialism is.... Communism. Which must be left-wing?)

Anyway, to keep the humour element within this thread, what we now need is an 8-bit blurry picture of Herr Hitler and his Axis allies, followed by a cunningly-apposite joke

possibly now but those political labels meant a lot back then.

My Filipina friend cannot pronounce squirrel (skirrel) as she says Tagalog doesn't have a Q . It doesn't have C, V, F, X or R either but that apparently isn't a problem.

All she has to do is imitate the noise. But I guess many people never experimented with making noises of different types when they were kids.

It's sometimes hard to approximate phonemes that aren't in your native language. Look at some far Eastern people with "L" and "R", or better yet, English (and other) people attempting to approximate the "LL" sound in Welsh. That's to say nothing of the clicks in some African languages.
