A man with a winking problem is applying for a position as a sales representative for a large firm. The interviewer looks over his papers and says, "This is phenomenal. You've graduated from the best schools; your recommendations are wonderful, and your experience is unparalleled. Normally, we'd hire you without a second thought. However, a sales representative has a highly visible position, and we're afraid that your constant winking will scare off potential customers. I'm sorry...we can't hire you."

"But wait," he said. "If I take two aspirin, I'll stop winking!"

"Really? Great! Show me!"

So the applicant reaches into his jacket pocket and begins pulling out all sorts of condoms: red condoms, blue condoms, ribbed condoms, flavored condoms; finally, at the bottom, he finds a packet of aspirin. He tears it open, swallows the pills, and stops winking.

"Well," said the interviewer, "that's all well and good, but this is a respectable company, and we will not have our employees womanizing all over the country!"

"Womanizing? What do you mean? I'm a happily married man!"

"Well then, how do you explain all these condoms?"

"Oh, that," he sighed. "Have you ever walked into a pharmacy, winking, and asked for aspirin?"

Dear DJB
That's a cute one... I liked it much... Thanks for the chuckle you brought in my working day.
You're welcome Emotion: wink
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Merhaba DJB,

You seem to be quite active in the 'jokes, puns, good words' department... Does your professional occupation have anything to do with this ? Your alias would indicate you're in the business of entertaining people with music as well ? Just curious...
Merhaba W.

Öncelikle şunu söylemeliyim ki eğlence sektöründe değilim,liseye gidiyorum daha..Ama bilmeceler ve espriler ilgilenmek büyük haz aldığım uğraşlar..Boş zamanlarımda müzik dinleyerek bilmeceler hazırlamayı ve çözmeyi çok seviyorum..Nickime gelince.. Müzikle tabii ki de ilgileniyorum ama profesyonel olarak değil,sadece sadık bir soft rock dinleyicisiyim..DJB adını arkadaşlarla aramızda olan bir espri yüzünden seçtim,çok da mutluyum,gururluyum..

Sevgiyle kal..


Firstly I have to mention that I am not in entartainment business,I am a high school student(I'm a senior).However I am fond of riddles and jokes...In my leisure time,I like solvin and formin puzzles as I am listenin to music..About my nick..Of course I deal with music but not as a professional,just a loyal soft rock listener Emotion: smile I chose that nick name due to a joke between I and my close friends,I am so happy for that..I'm proud of my nick..

Lots of love..

I'm sure glad you didn't leave me with only the turkish version of your reply Emotion: big smile... That'll teach me to pretend I speak turkish... Whereas the extent of my exposure to the turkish language is quite limited : saying hello, bye, thanks and counting from one to ten... Ah also ordering tea, water, and cherry juice (visne suyu)...

In case you're wondering : I'm french and working with computers... Which leaves me some time to have fun on the net with englishforum.com obviously...

Allahismarladik (that one, I'm really not sure about the spelling so you'll have to forgive me...).

Nice too meet you Emotion: smile You are doin good ...But it should have been "Allahaısmarladık" got it? Emotion: big smile So could you please tell me how to say goodbye in French?
Au revoir

A bientot = see you soon (this should help you if you want to talk to a French guy again DJ)

Adieu = farewell (This is for the dumped guy of course)
