    Scientists have all the fun

    Hi,

    Something to hopefully have a grin over ....

    *********************************************************
    Scientists at Roll Royce built a gun specifically to launch dead chickens at the windshields of airliners, and military jets, all traveling at maximum velocity.

    The idea was to simulate the frequent incidents of collisions with Airborne fowl and to test the strength of the windshields. American engineers heard about the gun and were eager to test it on the windshields of their new high speed trains.

    Arrangements were made, and a gun was sent to the American engineers
    in 2003 for testing.

    When the gun was fired, the engineers stood shocked as the chicken hurled out of the barrel, crashed into the shatterproof shield, smashed it to smithereens, blasted through the control console, snapped the engineer's back-rest in two and embedded itself in the back wall of the cabin, like an arrow shot from a bow.

    The horrified Yanks sent Rolls Royce the disastrous results of the experiment, along with the designs of the windshield and begged the British scientists for suggestions.

    Rolls Royce responded with a one-line memo:

    "Defrost the chicken"

    Whoops, I was received the above joke in an email I just cut / pasted it here. After posting it here, I noticed it contained the word "Yanks", for Americans.

    Got me wondering if this term has positivie, negative, or no connations attached to it.... or is it just an outdated term from a past era ?

    Curious to hear your comments.

    And if that is abit to serious .... then here's another joke ....

    *********************************************************
    Three men were sitting together bragging about how they had given
    their new wives duties.

    Terry had married a woman from America, and bragged that he had told
    his wife she was going to do all the dishes and house cleaning that
    needed to be done at their house. He said that it took a couple days
    but on the third day he came home to a clean house and the dishes were
    all washed and put away.

    Jimmie had married a woman from Canada. He bragged that he had given
    his wife orders that she was to do all the cleaning, dishes, and the
    cooking. He told them that the first day he didn't see any results,
    but the next day it was better. By the third day, his house was clean,
    the dishes were done, and he had a huge dinner on the table.

    The third man had married an Kiwi girl. He boasted that he told her
    that her duties were to keep the house cleaned, dishes washed, lawn
    mowed, laundry washed and hot meals on the table for every meal. He
    said the first day he didn't see anything, the second day he didn't
    see anything, but by the third day most of the swelling had gone down
    and he could see a little out of his left eye. Enough to fix himself a
    bite to eat, load the dishwasher, and call a landscaper.

    I don't find "Yank" offensive at all. To me, it's the equivalent of calling British people "Brits". In one of my jet engine classes, we got to watch some live footage of the chicken cannon. Fun stuff, but really gross.

    Another good chicken wheeze is a short story by Terry Prattchet. I just cant remember the name...

    If no -one comes up with it I'll post it another time. It's about chickens stuck on a verge between two roads and trying to cross the road. Very funny...
