Joke of the Day

What do you call the Champions League now that Real Madrid have been knocked out?

UnReal Tournament.

You know... like the video game.

To keep this joke fresh, keep on alternating your pronunciation of "Real" in the punchline between the regular "real" and the Spanish "Real".

Another reason to not put your money in the bank

Given the current economic clime and global financial meltdown, people everywhere have been worried about the money they have in banks, etc. However, for reasons I can't really fathom, the 83 year old woman below, who "had for years kept her savings in a desk in her home..finally decided it would be safer to put the cash in a bank account."
Unfortunately, for reasons I guarantee you could not have seen coming, she lost all her money. Don't engage in too much schadenfreude though, you've probably lost all your money too - you just don't know it yet.

In other news, also from Sweden, the economic conditions have gotten so bad that people are now stealing things that are actually given away for free:
Like condoms. From an association that exists solely to help in the prevention of STDs. By doing things like giving away, wait for it, FREE CONDOMS.
The only rationale I could come up with, was if the thief was really small and was ashamed of asking for the little condoms. However, we're then presented with the following:
"But according to staff at the office, all that was taken was a small sum of money and fifty extra large condoms. None of the smaller sizes were touched."
WTF - Extra Large? Are you kidding me - this dude should be walking into the place stark naked in broad daylight. That's what I would do. I mean, do. That's what I do.
