Allan's Perspective is not recommended for the politically correct, or the overly religious! Some people have opinions, and some have convictions ..., what we offer is Perspective!

Consciousness is not a phenomenon of the observable universe. It is that which makes the universe observable. Consciousness is the physical manifestation of God within us!

Sunday Morning Funnies #8

Needless to say, this joke was given to me by my Scottish wife:

How do you tell the difference between an Australian Police Officer, a Canadian Police Officer, an American Police Officer and a Scottish police officer? The answer is found below. 

QUESTION: You’re a policeman, on duty by yourself. You are walking on a deserted street late at night.
Suddenly, an armed man with a huge knife comes around the corner, locks eyes with you and screaming something that sounds like obscenities, raises the knife and lunges at you.

You are carrying your truncheon and are an expert in using it. However, you have only a split second to react before he reaches you. What do you do?


Canadian Police  Officer:

Firstly, the Officer must consider the man's human rights.

1) Does the man look poor and/or oppressed?

2) Is he newly arrived in this country and does not yet understand the law?

3) Is this really a knife or a ceremonial dagger?

4) Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack?

5) Am I dressed provocatively?

6) Could I run away?

7) Could I possibly swing my truncheon and knock the knife out of his hand?

8) Should I try and negotiate with him to discuss his wrong-doings?

9)  Why am I carrying a truncheon anyway and what kind of message does this send to society?

10) Does he definitely want to kill me or would he be content just to wound me?

11) If I were to grab his knees and hold on, would he still want to stab and kill me?

12) If I raise my truncheon and he turns and runs away, do I get blamed if he falls over, knocks his head and kills himself? 

13) If I hurt him and lose the subsequent court case, does he have the opportunity to sue me, cost me my job, my credibility and the loss of my family home?

Glasgow Police  Officer:

"Haw, Jimmie....! Drop the wee knifie reet this minute noo, unless ye want it stuck up yer arse!"

Two redneck farmers, Jim and Bob, are sitting at their favorite bar, drinking beer.
Jim turns to Bob and says, 'You know, I'm tired of going through life without an education.
Tomorrow I think I'll go to the community college, and sign up for some classes.'
Bob thinks it's a good idea, and the two leave.
The next day, Jim goes down to the college and meets the Dean of Admissions, who signs him up for the four basic classes: Math, English, History, and Logic.

'Logic?' Jim says. 'What's that?'

The Dean says, 'I'll give you an example. Do you own a weed eater?'


'Then logically speaking, because you own a weed eater, I think that you would have a yard.'
'That's true, I do have a yard.'
'I'm not done,' the dean says. 'Because you have a yard, I think logically that you would have a house.'
'Yes, I do have a house.'
And because you have a house, I think that you might logically have a family.'
'Yes, I have a family.' 
I'm not done yet. Because you have a family, then logically you must have a wife. And because you have a wife, then logic tells me you must be a heterosexual.'
'I am a heterosexual. That's amazing; you were able to find out all of that because I have a weed eater.'
Excited to take the class now, Jim shakes the Dean's hand and leaves to go meet Bob at the bar. He tells Bob about his classes, how he is 
signed up for Math, English, History, and Logic.
'Logic?' Bob says, 'What's that?'
Jim says, 'I'll give you an example. Do you have a weed eater?'


'Then you're queer!’


A school teacher asked her students to make a sentence containing the
expression “I presume”.

One  little girl held up her hand and said: “Yesterday my mother hand
washed the dinner dishes
And I presumed that the dishwasher was broken.”

“Very good” said the teacher.

Another one said: “This morning, my father drove the Volkswagen out of
the garage,
I presume that the BMW wouldn’t start.”

That’s excellent” says the teacher.

Little Johnny at the back of the classroom gets up and says:
“Yesterday I saw grandpa leave the house
With a newspaper under his arm and headed for the woods, I presume that...

The teacher interrupts him and says, “I stopped you because you have
no idea what your grandfather was going to do,so you can’t presume anything."

Johnny says, “Please Teacher, let me finish my sentence.”

The teacher says, “Very well. Continue.”

“As I was saying, I saw my grandpa heading for the woods with a
newspaper under his arm.

I presume he was going for a shit because he can’t read.”
