Meet the President: A True Funny Tale

When Will Rogers was being taken to the White House to meet President Calvin Coolidge, Vice President Dawes cautioned him not to try to be funny because the President had no sense of humour whatsoever.

Undaunted, Rogers bet Dawes that he could have Coolidge laughing within 20 seconds.

When the formal introduction was made, Dawes began by saying, 'Mr. President, may I introduce my friend, Mr Will Rogers.'

Rogers held out his hand with a questioning look and said, 'Pardon me, I didn't quite get the name.'

Coolidge roared with laughter, and Rogers won the wager.

Phil Goes to a Dentist: A Clever and Silly Story

Phil Gilliland, from Northern Ireland, visits his dentist in Southsea, Portsmouth because he feels something is not quite right in his mouth.

Dr Ansari, his dentist examines him and says, 'Phil, that new upper plate I put in for you six months ago is eroding. What have you been eating?'

Phil answers with a slight frown, 'All I can think of is that about four months ago my wife made some asparagus and put some stuff on it that was delicious - Hollandaise

Sauce, I think it was. I loved it so much I now put it on everything: meat, toast, fish, vegetables, everything.'

'Well,' says Dr Ansari, ' that's probably the problem. Hollandaise sauce is made with lots of lemon juice, which is highly corrosive. It's eaten away your upper plate. I'll make you a new plate, and this time use chrome.'

'Why chrome?' demands Phil. Funny Dentist Horror Stories

To which Dr Ansari, the dentist, replies, 'It's simple. Everyone knows that there's no plate like chrome for the Hollandaise.'

A True Story of An American Tourist

Mary Pembarthy, a guide at Windsor Castle, told Will and Guy this allegedly true story about what she heard last month when 'on duty'.

Mary was struggling to make herself heard over the roar of low flying aircraft coming into land at nearby London Heathrow Airport, one of the busiest in the world.

She was interrupted by an elderly American tourist who demanded what was wrong with the town planners, and why had they built the Royal Castle so close to the airport.

An Old Hindu Legend: Thought-Provoking Story for All

It is thought that there was once a time when all human beings were Gods, but they so abused their divinity that Brahma, the chief god, decided to take it away from them and hide it where it could never be found.

Brahma's problem though, was where to hide their divinity. So Brahma called a council of the gods to help him decide.

The Council's meeting went like this: 'Let's bury it deep in the earth,' said the Gods. But Brahma answered, 'No, that will not do because humans will dig into the earth and find it.'

Then the gods said, 'Let's sink it in the deepest ocean.' But again, Brahma said, 'No, not there, for they will learn to dive into the ocean and will find it.'

Then the gods said, 'Let's take it to the top of the highest mountain and hide it there.' But once again Brahma replied, 'No, that will not do either, because they will eventually climb every mountain and once again take up their divinity.'

Perplexed, befuddled and bemused, the gods gave up and said, 'We do not know where to hide it, because it seems that there is no place on earth or in the sea that human beings will not eventually reach.' Will and Guy's Funny Short Stories

Brahma thought for a long time and then said, 'Here is what we will do. We will hide their divinity deep in the centre of their own being, for humans will never think to look for it there.'

All the gods agreed that this was the perfect hiding place, and the deed was done. And since that time humans have been going up and down the earth, digging, diving, climbing, and exploring; searching for something that is already within themselves.

Mary Baker, the Princess Caraboo from the Island of Javasu Short Online Story

In 1817, a cobbler in England, met an apparently disoriented young woman with exotic clothes who was speaking a language no one could understand. Locals brought many foreigners who tried to find out what strange language the lady was talking, until a Portuguese sailor "translated" her story: she was Princess Caraboo from the island of Javasu in the Indian Ocean. She had been captured by pirates, then jumped overboard in the Bristol Channel and swam ashore.

For the next ten weeks, this representative of exotic royalty was a favourite of the local dignitaries. She used a bow and arrow, fenced, swam naked and prayed to God, whom she termed Allah Tallah. She acquired exotic clothing and a portrait made of her was reproduced in local newspapers.

Eventually the truth came out: she was actually a cobbler's daughter, Mary Baker, from Devon. She had been a servant girl in various places all over England but had not found a place to stay. She had invented a fictitious language out of imaginary and gypsy words and created an exotic character.

She continued her role in the USA, France and Spain without the same luck. Her story was the basis of the 1994 movie "Princess Caraboo", written by John Wells.

Beautiful Stork Love Story Short Online Story

Vets who saved a female stork, shot by hunters in Croatia, thought her days were numbered but did not take into account the devotion of her mate, Will and Guy can report. The vets knew the female, which they called Malena, would never fly again but put her back on her nest thinking she would not survive the winter. When her partner, named Rodan, flew south with their young they expected that she would eventually die and certainly never mate again.

Their predictions were proved wrong after the Vokic family, where she had a nest, helped to feed her through the long winter months and she survived. Perhaps, even more amazingly, Rodan has returned every year to mate with his partner and rear another clutch of chicks.

Rodan flies 13,000 kilometres to South Africa, each year, to spend winter in the warm and then the same distance back again to be back with his injured love. A local told Will and Guy, 'She was shot in 1993 by Italians - but she didn't die and was handed over to our vet. He saved her life but was crippled and had lost her ability to fly. The damage was too severe. Her lover is amazing; this year when he arrived from South Africa, where he spent the winter, despite the fact that he had travelled 13,000 kilometres he immediately made love to Malena. It was clear they were pleased to see each other. As she can't fly Rodan teaches the little ones to fly and accompanies them to the south every season.'

Brilliant tale.

Drink Driver Pretends To Be the Pope: A Short Online Story

A drunk driver claimed spiritual immunity when he was pulled over in France by pretending to be the Pope.

The motorist told police he was Pope Benedict, refused to get out of his car and turned his music up when they stopped him on a road just outside Bordeaux. The officers said they could tell immediately he was not the Pontiff as the inebriated man was in his 50s. And although the 83-year-old Pope speaks French, he is known to do so with a strong German accent.

The motorist's son, who was in the passenger seat, managed to defuse the situation and persuade the bogus pontiff to get out of the car and face earthly justice.

Police confiscated the man's licence after he failed a breath test.

Health and Safety In the CinemaShort Online Story

Christopher was sprawled across three entire seats in a theatre. When the usher came by and noticed this, he whispered to the man, 'Sorry sir, but you're only allowed one seat.'

Christopher groaned but didn't budge one inch. The usher became impatient. 'Sir,' the usher announced, 'If you don't get up from there, I'm going to have to call the manager.'

Again, Christopher just groaned which, in turn, infuriated the usher who spun on his heel and marched briskly back up the aisle in search of his manager. In a few moments, both the usher and the manager returned and stood over the man. Together the two of them tried repeatedly to move him, but with no success. Finally, they summoned the police. The cop surveyed the situation briefly.

All right, mate. What's your name?'
'Chris,' the man moaned, in considerable agony.

'And where you from, Chris?' the cop barked.
'The balcony.'
