An old man and a teenager were sitting next to each other, waiting for a bus in the bus station. The teenager had spiked his hair in various colors: blue, green, yellow, orange.

The old man kept staring at the teenager, who became increasingly annoyed. Sarcastically he asked, “What’s the matter with you old man, haven't you ever done anything wild in your life?"

The old man replied, "Yeah, I got drunk once and had sex with a peacock, and I was just wondering if you were my son."

According to contacts in Tokyo, the Japanese banking crisis seems to be worsening.

Following last week's news that Origami Bank has folded, we are hearing that the Sumo Bank has gone belly-up and the Bonsai Bank plans to cut back some of its branches.

Karaoke Bank is up for sale and is going for a song.

Meanwhile, shares in the Kamikaze Bank have nose-dived and 500 office staff at Karate Bank got the chop.

Analysts report that there is something fishy going on at the Sushi Bank and staff fear they may get a raw deal.

Three contractors are bidding to fix a broken fence at the White House. One is from Chicago, another is from Tennessee, and the third is from Minnesota. All three go with a White House official to examine the fence. The Minnesota contractor takes out a tape measure and does some measuring, then works some figures with a pencil. "Well," he says, "I figure the job will run about $900. $400 for materials, $400 for my crew, and $100 profit for me." The Tennessee contractor also does some measuring and figuring, then says, "I can do this job for $700. $300 for materials, $300 for my crew, and $100 profit for me." The Chicago contractor doesn't measure or figure, but leans over to the White House official and whispers, "$2,700." The official, incredulous, says, "You didn't even measure like the other guys! How did you come up with such a high figure?" The Chicago contractor whispers back, "$1000 for me, $1000 for you, and we hire the guy from Tennessee to fix the fence." "Done!" replies the government official.
