Web Addresses - Amazing

When companies first got websites, they didn't think things through. All of these were legitimate companies that didn't spend quite enough time considering how their online names might appear - and be misread!

"Who Represents" is where you can find the name of the agent that represents any celebrity. Their Web site is www.whorepresents.com

"Experts Exchange" is a knowledge base where programmers can exchange advice and views at www.expertsexchange.com

Looking for a pen? Look no further than "Pen Island" at www.penisland.net

Need a therapist? Try "Therapist Finder" at www.therapistfinder.com

There's the "Italian Power Generator Company" at www.powergenitalia.com

Don't forget the "Mole Station Native Nursery" www.molestationnursery.com

FIFA World Cup 2010

After Nigeria was eliminated from the FIFA World Cup, a top player personally offered to refund all the expenses of fans who travelled to South Africa to watch them play. He said he just needed their bank account number and PIN to complete the transactions. A very generous offer, but I personally would not do it.

A new trend as a consequence of the World Cup has members of the Swiss Alpine Association seeing red. The Alpine horn, known the world over and an intrinsic part of the nations culture - along with yodelling and Cuckoo Clocks - is being supplanted by something quite different. You guessed it, the returning fans from the world cup are now stretching their lungs and filling the alpine air with the dulcet tones of the vuvuzela.

One local complained when played in unison, they sound like a swarm of angry bees. Another said it belongs on the veldt but not here in our valleys. The Alpine Association has asked the government to ban these hideous horns from the country altogether. (Pictured below a young Swiss lass practicing for her next mountaineering excursion).

Black Or White, Or Pink , Or Red...

When I born, I black,
when I grow up, I black,
when I go in sun, I black,
when I cold, I black,
when I scared, I black,
when I sick, I black,
and when I die, I still black.

You white folks....
when you born, you pink,
when you grow up, you white,
when you go in sun, you red,
when you cold, you blue,
when you scared, you yellow,
when you sick, you green,
when you bruised, you purple,
and when you die, you gray.

So who you callin' colored folks ???
