May Day! . . . May Day! May 1, 2012

Posted by nrhatch in Humor, Joke, People.

Donald Duck was staying in a posh hotel on the outskirts of London.

Late one evening, he called down to the Front Desk.

“Excuse me, will you please send some condoms up to my room?”

“Certainly, sir.  Shall we put them on your bill?”

“No!  Don’t do that!  . . . I couldn’t breathe!”


Donald quacks me up!


OK . . .

A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts, “Excuse me, sir. Can you help me? I promised my friend I would meet him half an hour ago, but I don’t know where I am.”

The man below says, “You are in a red balloon hovering approximately 40 feet above this field. You are between 46 & 48 degrees N latitude and between 52 & 56 degrees W. longitude.”

“You must be an engineer,” says the balloonist.

“Yes!  How did you know that?”

“Well, even though everything you told me is correct, I am still lost.”

The man below nods and says, “Aah . . . you must be in Management.”

“That’s right!  How did you know?”

“Well,” says the man below, “you don’t know where you are or where you are going. You made a promise which you have no idea how to keep.  You are in the exact same position you were in before we met . . . but now your problem is somehow my fault.”

Happy May Day!

This reminds me of a time when I was working as a custodian in a local department store. That was at a time when the Store’s Manager was leaving, and they were looking for a new one.

One department supervisor asked me, “Why don’t you apply for the position? After all, you’re all over the store. You see everything that’s going on.”

I told her, “It’s true that I see everything that’s going on, but I haven’t got the slightest idea what I’m looking at.”

She said, “Then you’re no different than any other Manager we’ve ever had. You’d be perfect in the position!”

That’s great, William! 😛

Thanks for the laugh, Nancy:-) …and Happy May Day to you too!

nrhatch - May 1, 2012

Nothing like a bit of levity as we dance around the May Pole. 😆

3. Andra Watkins - May 1, 2012

Happy May Day from the place where I almost got swamped in a protest march!! 🙂

nrhatch - May 1, 2012

OMG . . . I’m glad that you didn’t get trampled. Be safe!

4. sufilight - May 1, 2012

Thanks for the May Day chuckles. A must share with my s/o as he will identify with the engineer’s joke. 🙂

nrhatch - May 1, 2012

Oh, good. I’m from a family of Electrical Engineers . . . so it tickled my funny bone chakra. 😀

5. nancycurteman - May 1, 2012

May Day is brighter because of your cute jokes. They lifted my drooping aura.

nrhatch - May 1, 2012

Yay! Drooping and sagging auras are not nearly as much fun as light-hearted laughter. 😀

6. Three Well Beings - May 1, 2012

It’s raining, I’m cold in my office, I’m eating a “cold” lunch…and you’ve warmed me up! Good job! Debra

nrhatch - May 1, 2012

Wonderful! Wish I could send a “hot” lunch your way too ~ some days are made for soup.

7. Tammy - May 1, 2012


nrhatch - May 1, 2012

Thanks, Tammy. Happy May Day!

8. Crowing Crone Joss - May 1, 2012

Happy May Day to you as well with thanks for the great laugh!

nrhatch - May 1, 2012

You’re welcome! A neighbor shared the Donald Duck joke with me a few days ago . . . seemed perfect for passing along.

9. thirdhandart - May 1, 2012

Happy May Day Nancy! Love the joke about Management.
The punch line pertains to a lot of Managers that I’ve had over the years. 😆

nrhatch - May 1, 2012

I found it amusing for the exact same reason. 😀

10. Jas - May 2, 2012

Thanks for the hearty laugh Nancy.. 🙂

nrhatch - May 2, 2012

Laughter does the heart good. 😀

11. jannatwrites - May 2, 2012

I really like the second joke – funny, and there is truth to it!

nrhatch - May 2, 2012

That’s what makes “lawyer jokes” so funny . . . 😉

12. Piglet in Portugal - May 2, 2012

Love the engineer joke, how true!

nrhatch - May 2, 2012

Yes! Precise . . . without offering usable useful info. 😉

13. sweetdaysundertheoaks - May 2, 2012

Happy May Day one day late! Funny!

nrhatch - May 2, 2012

Silly jokes amuse me. 😛

14. Rufus' Food and Spirits Guide - May 2, 2012

Posh hotels in London don’t let you in pantsless!

nrhatch - May 2, 2012

Maybe Donald was wearing a raincoat? 😆

Paula Tohline Calhoun - May 2, 2012

Both jokes: HAR! 😆

But about Donald – I am shocked! Was he with Daisy? Or perhaps some British floozy duck he picked up while on “liberty.” I guess he figured since he didn’t have any pants on, he might as well take advantage of that. TIOOMFC

Now I see that someone has already made that comment. So much for my original wit.

Here I wa expecting a great May Day post (which I was going to do, but forgot! Uh-oh!), and I find Donald Duck, condoms, and stupid balloonists. Something weird is going on here. Maybe I really do need to check into a home. . .

In re your comment above about a “raincoat,” what do you think he was asking the front desk for? Perhaps he should have called them French Letters. . . TIOOMFALC

nrhatch - May 2, 2012

Glad you enjoyed, PTC. Perhaps Donald merely wanted condoms to use as water balloons.

Yes. I’m certain that must be it. 😆

15. eof737 - May 2, 2012

Happy May Day and lucky Donald for his posh quarters. 😉

nrhatch - May 2, 2012

I’ve only been to London once . . . years and years ago. Definitely a “destination city” for many.

eof737 - May 2, 2012

Yes, it is… 🙂

16. bluebee - May 5, 2012

I love silly jokes, haha – DD is very silly

nrhatch - May 5, 2012

Quack! 😀

17. wightrabbit - May 5, 2012

Loving the management joke – so true! Although sometimes, for the workers, it’s not funny! 🙂

nrhatch - May 5, 2012

You’ve got a point, Jacqueline. I once worked for a witch who made HER shortcomings and failures OUR problem on a regular basis. At first, I found it terribly confusing (because she was a bit like Jekyll and Hyde) . . . but I learned to read the signs over time. Odd woman.

18. Team Oyeniyi - May 5, 2012

OMG! 😆 I love the management/engineer one!

Donald Duck wasn’t too bad either!

nrhatch - May 5, 2012

Yes! That definitely tickled my funny bone chakra! 😆
