Doo yoo know the difference between a good spud and a crap spud ????

Well a good spud as more cellulose material in it and crap spuds have more water in them and how you tell the difference is to feel the spud

place the spud in the palm of your hand and give it a good squeeze, it you can feel it give slightly (squishes) them it is full of water and will cook and taste awful, if when you squeeze the spud and it is firm and hard and does not flex, then it will be a good spud

Nicola Sturgeon, Donald Trump, and Vladimir Putin all die and go to hell.

While there they spy a red phone and ask what it's for.

The Devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.

Putin calls Russia and talks for 5 minutes. When he finishes the devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so Putin writes him a cheque.

Next Donald Trump calls the USA and talks for 30 minutes. When he's finished the devil tells him that the cost is 6 million dollars, and Trump writes him a cheque.

Finally Nicola Sturgeon gets her turn and calls Scotland for 4 hours.

When she's finished, the devil informs her that there is no charge, and feel free to call Scotland anytime.

Putin and Trump go ballistic and ask the devil why Nicola Sturgeon got to call Scotland free.

The devil replies, "Since she became First Minister of Scotland, the Country has gone to hell, so it's a local call"

A British General had sent some of his men off to fight for their country in the Falkland Island Crisis.

Upon returning to England from the South American island, three soldiers that had distinguished themselves in battle were summoned to the General’s office

“Since we weren’t actually at war” the General began “I can’t give out any medals

We did, however, want to let each of you know your efforts were appreciated.
What we’ve decided to do is to let each of you choose two points on your body.

You will be given two pounds sterling for each inch of distance between those parts.

We’ll start on the left, boys, so what’ll it be?”

Soldier 1: “The tip of me head to me toes, sahr!”
General: “Very good son, that’s 70 inches which comes to 140 pounds”

Soldier 2: “The tip of the finger on one outstretched hand to the tip of the other, sir!”
General: “Even better son, that’s 72 inches which comes to 144 pounds”

Soldier 3: “The palm of me hand to the tip of me left little finger, sahr!”
General: “That’s a strange but fair request, son!

As the general begins the measurement: “What!
Son, where is your left little finger?”

Soldier 3: “Falkland Island, sahr!”

An elderly widower walks into an upscale cocktail lounge.

He is in his mid-eighties, very well-dressed, hair well-groomed,great looking suit, flower in his lapel and smelling slightly of an expensive after shave. He presents a very nice image.

Seated at the bar is a classy looking lady in her mid-seventies.

The sharp old gentleman walks over and sits alongside her. He orders a drink and takes a sip. He slowly turns to the lady and says:

"So, tell me..... do I come here often?"

Frank always looked on the bright side...He would constantly irritate his friends with his eternal optimism.

No matter how horrible the circumstances, he would always reply, "It could have been worse"

To cure him of his annoying habit, his friends decided to invent a situation so completely bad, so terrible, that even Frank could find no hope in it.

On the golf course one day, one of them said, "Frank, did you hear about Tom?"

He came home last night, found his wife in bed with another man, shot them both and then turned the gun on himself!"

"That's awful" said Frank "But it could have been worse".....

"How in the hell" asked his bewildered friend "Could it have been worse?"

"Well" replied Frank

"If it happened the night before, I'd be dead now!"

A wagon train went through the prairie and entered the foothills
They came upon a clearing where they found a previous wagon train, burned out, arrows in the wagons, no one alive.

The trail boss looked up and saw Indians all around. He thought GOSH!!

As he was pondering what to do he came upon a bottle and pulled out the cork and Yes, you guessed it - a Genie popped out!

The genie said "Not your day is it!. You can have only one wish but there is a catch

Whatever you wish for the Indians get two. So if you want a horse they get two. If you ask for rifles they get twice as many-get the idea"

The trail boss said " OK then in that case -- I'll have a glass eye"

Trainer in paddock at Ascot where he is running a horse owned by Lord Rosebery.

He takes a white pill out his pocket and gives it to the horse.
Unknowing to the trainer, Lord Rosebery is approaching behind him and sees everything.

Being a stalwart of the Jockey Club, Lord Rosebery is absolutely fuming and rightly so.

"What do you think you are doing giving my horse dope" he yells at the trainer.

The startled trainer turns around. "No your Lordship, you have got it all wrong" he replies.
"It`s just a peppermint, the old boy loves them"

Fidgeting in his pocket, he then pulls out another two white pills.
"Here you have one and I`ll have the other"

Lord Rosebery shoves it in his mouth and begins to blush. "I`m very sorry. Please accept my sincere apologies"

"No problem your Lordship, we all make mistakes" says the trainer.

Lord Rosebery leaves for the grandstand and the trainer legs up the jockey and gives him his instructions.

"Drop him in behind the leaders and approaching the 2f pole, pull him out and he`ll storm to the front .........

and don't worry if anything passes you, it`ll either be me or Lord Rosebery"!

Riding the favourite at Cheltenham, the jockey is well ahead of the field.
Suddenly he's hit on the head by a turkey and a string of sausages.

He manages to keep control of his mount and pulls back into the lead, only to be struck by a box of Christmas crackers and a dozen mince pies as he goes over the last fence.

With great skill he manages to steer the horse to the front of the field once more when, on the run in, he’s struck on the head by a bottle of sherry and a Christmas pudding and he only finishes second.

He immediately goes to the stewards to complain that he has been seriously hampered.

A rabbit walks into a pub and says to the barman:
‘Can I have a pint of beer, and a Ham and Cheese Toastie?’

The barman is amazed, but gives the rabbit a pint of beer and a ham and cheese toastie. The rabbit drinks the beer and eats the toastie. He then leaves.

The following night the rabbit returns and again asks for a pint of beer, and a Ham and Cheese Toastie.
The barman, now intrigued by the rabbit and the extra drinkers in the pub, (because word gets round), gives the rabbit the pint and the
toastie. The rabbit consumes them and leaves.

The next night, the pub is packed. In walks the rabbit and says, ‘A pint of beer and a Ham and Cheese Toastie, please barman’

The crowd is hushed as the barman gives the rabbit his pint and toastie, and then burst into applause as the rabbit wolfs them down.
The next night there is standing room only in the pub. Coaches have been laid on for the crowds of patrons attending.
The barman is making more money in one week than he did all last year. In walks the rabbit and says, ‘A pint of beer and a Ham and Cheese Toastie, please barman’

The barman says, ‘I’m sorry rabbit, old mate, old mucker, but we are right out of them Ham and Cheese Toasties..’

The rabbit looks aghast.

The crowd has quietened to almost a whisper, when the barman clears his throat nervously and says, ‘We do have a very nice Cheese and Onion Toastie.’ The rabbit looks him in the eye and says, ‘Are you sure I will like it?’

The masses’ bated breath is ear shatteringly silent.
The barman, with a roguish smile says, ‘Do you think that I would let down one of my best friends. I know you’ll
love it’

‘Ok’, says the rabbit, ‘I’ll have a pint of beer and a Cheese and Onion Toastie’

The pub erupts with glee as the rabbit quaffs the beer and guzzles the toastie. He then waves to the crowd and leaves….

One year later, in the now impoverished public house, the barman, (who has only served 4 drinks tonight, 3 of which were his), calls time.

When he is cleaning down the now empty bar, he sees a small white form, floating above the bar.

The barman says, ‘Who are you?’, to which he is answered, ‘I am the ghost of the rabbit that used to frequent your public house.’
The barman says, ‘I remember you. You made me famous. You would come in every night and have a pint of beer and a Ham and Cheese Toastie. Masses came to see you and this place was famous’
The rabbit says, ‘Yes I know’
The barman said, ‘I remember, on your last night we didn’t have any Ham and Cheese Toasties. You had a Cheese and Onion one instead’

The rabbit said ‘Yes, you promised me that I would love it’

Barman; ‘You never came back, what happened?’

‘I DIED’, said the rabbit.

‘NO!’ said the barman. ‘What from?’

After a short pause. The rabbit said…

A man and a woman, who are both married to other people, find themselves forced to share a hotel room for a night

They feel weird at first, but they both fall asleep in their separate beds.

After a few hours of sleeping, the man wakes the woman up and asks her
"Could you grab me another blanket from the closet? I'm really cold"

Shortly after take-off on an outbound, evening Aer Lingus flight from Dublin to Boston, the lead flight attendant nervously made the following painful announcement in her lovely Irish brogue:

“Ladies and gentlemen, I’m so sorry but it appears that there has been a terrible mix-up by our catering service.

I don’t know how this has happened, but we have 103 passengers on board, and unfortunately, we received only 40 dinner meals. I truly apologise for this mistake and inconvenience"
When the muttering of the passengers had died down, she continued. "Anyone who is kind enough to give up their meal so that someone else can eat, will receive free and unlimited drinks for the duration of the six-hour flight”

Her next announcement came about two-hours later

If anyone is hungry, we still have 40 dinners available”
