Funny as

What the Fire Commander Said! Priceless!

For those who understand, no explanation is needed.
For those who do not understand, no explanation is possible.
Not fair to make judgement of this,

until you see what the Fire Commander says!!!!

In South Auckland , a 4-flat property was destroyed by a fire.

A Samoan family of six, all welfare recipients and gang members, lived
on the first floor.  They died.

An Islamic group of seven welfare cheats, all illegally in the country from
Pakistan , lived on the second floor.  They, too, all perished.

Six  Black Power & ex-cons lived on the 3rd floor.  They, too,

A white couple lived on the top floor.
The couple survived the fire.

Hone Harawira, Tariana Turia and Pita Sharples (Maori politicians) were
furious!! They flew into Auckland and met with the fire commander. On camera,
they loudly demanded to know why Samoan, Muslims and Black Power people all
died in the fire and why only the white couple lived?

The Fire Commander said, “They were at work.”

That’s how the fight started

I rear-ended a car this morning…the start of a REALLY bad day!

The driver got out of the other car, and he was a DWARF!!

He looked up at me and said ‘I am NOT Happy!’

So I said, ‘Well, which one ARE you then?’

That’s how the fight started.

PBT Couriers “Napier”

Big Rant about PBT Couriers “Napier”.

They recieved my packaged at 6:12 am 28/2/2013, and got it to me  at 3:30pm 1/3/2013.

Thats 33 1/2 hours to get it from Napier to Hastings (12 miles).

Thats one lousy business, and not even a sorry.
