Because some people have accused me for being too serious,
and indeed I guess I can be at times, I thought that with Christmas behind us
and our New Years’ eve parties too – perhaps it’s a good idea to think of
something really funny to hang onto during 2014? So the question is what?

Me, I like silly jokes, especially ones that take me deliberately
down an unexpected path, how about this one I heard recently?

Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them
collapses. He doesn’t seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other hunter
pulls out his phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps, “My friend
is dead! What can I do?” The operator says “Calm down. I can help.
First, let’s make sure he’s dead.” There is a silence, then a gun shot is
heard. Back on the phone, the hunter says “OK, now what?

Whatever it is that makes you laugh, my New Year wish is ‘may
you always be strong enough to hang on to your sense of humour in 2014. Nine
times out of ten, when things do not go to plan, it’s probably the the second most
important attribute anyone can have, after common sense!

Have a good week
