Klapping a Cop with a Papsak

02 February 2014, 18:17

With so many relationships falling apart, when we hear of couples celebrating their Silver or Gold - *Will you still need me?  Will you still feed me, when I'm 64? wedding anniversaries we may wonder - How did they stay together for so long?

The following may provide some of the answers:

Compromising:  He could eat no fat, she could eat no lean.  So between the two of them, they licked the platter clean. - Jack and Mrs Sprat.

Listening:  A doctor's wife asked him to buy bread and milk on his way home.  He drove to the store and back to the hospital, telling the bemused nurses that his wife had 'phoned to remind him that he had another operation scheduled.

Encouraging:  My dad used to get up every morning to make sure my mom got to work on time. - Del Boy Trotter.

Guiding:  Honey, please turn the map upside down when you read it to me.  And, I will ask for directions.  I promise.

Appreciating:  Ladies, prevent your better halves saying:  "There's just no pleasing some women," when you ask him to help you bring in the washing before an impending thunderstorm, and he glances out the window to check and then runs inside with the bag of pegs.

Humouring:  A newly ordained priest, from Pennsylvania, having muddled up his appointments told a group of teenagers:  "My wife and I have tried in twice.  The first time I threw up and the second time the wind blew my hat off."

The teenagers were there to hear his advice on safe sex.  The priest thought he was addressing them on canoeing. - Readers Digest.  Circa 1980's.

Accepting:  He lets rip under the bed covers on your honeymoon.  She is appalled.  He thinks he is the funniest thing since Barry Hilton.  She hopes he will grow out of it.

And last, but certainly not least:

Supporting:  A couple were disturbing the peace on a beach in Cape Town.  A cop marched up to them and began pulling the man away. 

His wife, while klapping the cop with a papsak, yelled:  "Los hom uit, jou vark.  Hy's my man.  Ek sal hom bliksem!"  The cop ran away and the couple hugged and fell into the sand laughing.

Other choice words, even unheard of by sailors, have been omitted for sensitive readers.

Indeed.

The misunderstanding of pessimism

Pessimists are known to be thought of as generally negative, depressed and grumpy people. I'm here to tell you that this is very far from the truth. Pessimists are largely misunderstood realists. Read more...
