I can't guarantee that all (or even any) of the jokes in here will be suitable for younger viewers, but hopefully they'll all be funny!!

The balloonist.

Postby Brian Steers » Mon Sep 05, 2011 2:48 pm


A woman in a hot air balloon realized she was lost. She reduced altitude
and spotted a man below. She descended a bit more and shouted:
'Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour
ago but I don't know where I am..'

The man below replied, 'You're in a hot air balloon hovering approximately
30 feet above the ground. You're between 40 and 41 degrees north latitude
and between 59 and 60 degrees west longitude.'

'You must be an Engineer,' said the balloonist.

'I am,' replied the man, 'how did you know?'

'Well,' answered the balloonist, 'everything you have told me is probably
technically correct, but I've no idea what to make of your information and
the fact is, I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help at all. If
anything, you've delayed my trip by your talk.'

The man below responded, 'You must be in Management.'

'I am,' replied the balloonist, 'but how did you know?'

'Well,' said the man, 'you don't know where you are or where you're going.
You have risen to where you are, due to a large quantity of hot air. You
made a promise, which you've no idea how to keep, and you expect people
beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same
position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it's my fault.'

Variation on the theme.

A helicopter descends out of the fog, lost, and is next to a tall office building. The passenger writes a message on a pad and holds it up.

"Where are we?" it says.

The office workers put their heads together and write out a reply.

"You are in a helicopter"

"Great", says the pilot. "I know exactly where we are"

"How?", asks the passenger.

"Their answer was factually correct but of no f*cking use whatsoever. That must be the Microsoft office building"
