An agriculture student visited a farm as part of his studies. While he was inspecting the site, he said to the farmer: “Your methods are too old fashioned. I wouldn’t be surprised if this tree gives you less than twenty kilograms of apples.”

“I won’t be surprised either,” said the farmer. “That is an orange tree.”

A man urgently calls the hospital

A man speaks frantically into the phone: “My wife is pregnant, and her contractions are only two minutes apart!”

“Is this her first child?” the doctor queries.

“No, you idiot!” the man shouts. “This is her husband!”

A young man decided to play golf in his spare time

A young man, who was also an avid golfer, found himself with a few hours to spare one afternoon. He figured that if he hurried and played very fast, he could get in nine holes before he had to head home.

Just as he was about to tee off, an old gentleman shuffled onto the tee and asked if he could accompany the young man as he was golfing alone. Not being able to say no, he allowed the old man to join him.

To his surprise, the old man played fairly quickly. He didn’t hit the ball far, but plodded along consistently and didn’t waste much time. Finally, they reached the ninth fairway and the young man found himself with a tough shot.

There was a large pine tree right in front of his ball and directly between his ball and the green. After several minutes of debating how to hit the shot, the old man finally said: “You know, when I was your age, I’d hit the ball right over that tree”.

With that challenge placed before him, the youngster swung hard, hit the ball up, right smack into the top of the tree trunk and it thudded back on the ground not a metre from where it had originally laid.

The old man offered one more comment: “Of course, when I was your age, that pine tree was only one metre tall”.
