Who wrote “Os Lusíadas”? – to laugh

One morning, the Teacher asks the student:

– Tell me who wrote “Os Lusíadas”?

The student, stuttering, responds:

– I don’t know, Mrs. Teacher, but it wasn’t me.

And he starts to cry. The teacher, furious, tells him:

– Well then, in the afternoon, I want to talk to your Father.

In conversation with his Father, the Teacher complains to him:

– I don’t understand your son. I asked him who wrote “Os Lusíadas” and he replied that he didn’t know, that it wasn’t him…

The Father says:

– Well, he’s not usually a liar, if he says he wasn’t, it’s because he wasn’t. I could not say the same about he’s brother…

Annoyed with such ignorance, the Teacher decides to go home and, on the way she passes by the local police post and the Post Commander tells her:

– Looks like the day didn’t go very well for you…

– It seems so. Imagine that I asked a student who wrote “Os Lusíadas” and he replied that he didn’t know, that it wasn’t him, and he started to cry.

The Post Commander:

– Do not worry. We call the kid and we give him a “squeeze”, you’ll see that he confesses everything!

With her hair standing on end, the Teacher comes home and finds her husband sitting on the couch, reading the newspaper. He asks her:

– So the day went well?

– Well, let me see. Today I asked a student who wrote “Os Lusíadas”. He started to stutter, that he didn’t know, that it hadn’t been him and began to cry. His Father tells me he’s not usually a liar. The Post Commander wants to call him and force him to confess. What shall I do with this?

The husband, comforting her:

– Look, forget it. Have dinner, sleep and tomorrow everything will be resolved. You’ll see that maybe it was you and you don’t remember anymore…!

Mine are better than yours…

A couple is lying in bed. The man says, “I am going to make you the happiest woman in the world”
The woman says, “I’ll miss you.”


“It’s just too hot to wear clothes today” Les says as he stepped out of the shower, “Honey, what do you think the neighbours would think if I mowed the lawn like this?”
“Probably that I married you for your money,” she replied.


He said “Since I first laid eyes on you, I’ve wanted to make love to you really badly.”
She said “Well, you succeeded.”


He said “Shall we try swapping positions tonight?”
She said “That’s a good idea… You stand by the ironing board while I sit on the sofa and fart”.


He said “What have you been doing with all the grocery money I gave you?”
She said “Turn sideways and look in the mirror you fat bastard.”


Q: What do you call an intelligent, good looking, sensitive man?
A: A rumour


My husband came home with a tube of KY jelly and said, “This will make you happy tonight.”
He was right. When he went out of the bedroom, I squirted it all over the doorknobs. He couldn’t get back in.

Jokes… LOL

– Sex?

– Doesn’t matter!

Do you know what’s worse than a pebble in your shoe?
A grain of sand in the condom….!

A middle-aged woman had a heart attack and was taken to the hospital.
While on the operating table she had a near death experience.

Seeing GOD she asked “Is my time up?” GOD said, “No, you have another 43 years, 2 months and 8 days to live.” Upon recovery, the woman decided to stay in the hospital and have a facelift, liposuction, and a
tummy tuck. She even had someone come in and change her hair color. Since she had so much more time to live, she figured she might as well make the most of it. After her last operation she was released from the hospital. While crossing the street on her way home, she was killed by an ambulance. Arriving in front of GOD, she demanded, “I thought You said I had another 40 years? Why didn’t You pull me from out of the path of the ambulance?”
(You will love this!!!)
GOD replied, “I didn’t recognize you!”

Excelent way to discover vocations!

Brick Method for Hiring Employees

The method consists of:

1- Place all candidates in a warehouse
2- Make 200 bricks available for each one.
3- Don’t give any guidance on what to do.
4- Lock them there.

After six hours, go back and check what you’ve done.
Below is the analysis of the results:

1 – Those who counted the bricks, hire them as Accountants.

2 – Those who counted and then recounted the bricks are Auditors.

3 – Those who scattered the bricks are Engineers.

4 – Those who have arranged the bricks in a very strange way, difficult to understand, place them in the Production Control Planning, Projects and Implementation.

5 – Those who are throwing bricks at each other, place them in Operations.

6 – Those who are sleeping, put them in Security.

7 – Those who have chopped the bricks into pieces and are trying to assemble them again, should go straight to Information Technology.

8 – Those who are sitting around doing nothing or chatting, go to Human Resources.

9 – Those who say that they did everything to reduce the stock, but the competition is unfair and it will be necessary to think about greater facilities, are natural Sellers.

10 – Those who have already left are Administrators.

11 – Those who are looking out the window with their gaze lost in infinity, are responsible for Strategic Planning.

12 – Those who are talking to each other with their hands in their pockets demonstrating that they have not even touched the bricks and would never do that, greet them with great respect and place them in the Board.

13 – Those who built a wall and hid behind are from the Marketing Department.

14 – Those who claim not to see any bricks in the warehouse are lawyers, refer them to the Legal Department.

15 – Those who complain that the bricks “are rubbish, without identification, without standardization and with wrong measurements”, place them in Quality Control.

Yours sincerely,

The two nuns

Two nuns left the convent to sell cookies

One was known as: Math Sister.

The other as: Logical Sister.

It is getting dark and we are still far from the convent! – Sister Mathematics says with concern.

And have you noticed that a man has been following us for half an hour? Says Sister Logic, apprehensive.

Yes, what does he want?

Of course, he only wants one thing: to abuse us!

Oh no ! If we continue at this pace it will reach us in less than 5 minutes. We have to speed up the pace!

But it is not working because he did the only logical thing to do: he also started walking faster!

And now what are we going to do?

The only logical thing that remains for us to do is to separate. Sister goes this way and I go the other way. So he will not be able to follow both.

So the man decided to follow Sister Logic.

Sister Mathematics arrived at the convent worried about what might have happened to Brother Logic and began to pray non-stop.

After a long time, Sister Logica arrives.

Logic Sister! Thank God it arrived! Tell me what happened?

The logical thing happened, didn’t you, Sister? The man could not follow us at two and chose to follow me.

Yes, but what happened next?

-The logical! I started running faster and he ran as fast as he could too.

And the logical thing happened again: he caught up with me.

Oh my God ! And what did you do?

I did the logic, I lifted my habit.

Oh Sister! And what did the man do?

He also did the logic: he unbuttoned his jacket and pulled his pants down.

Oh no ! And what happened next?

Isn’t it obvious Sister? A nun with a raised habit can run much faster than a man with his pants down.

And you, what did you think?
There are already 20 Hail Marys as penance.
