Man who run in front of car get tired Man who run behind car get exhausted Man who walk through airport turnstile sideways going to Bangkok Man with one chopstick go hungry Man who scratch butt should not bite fingernails Many prunes get good run for money Baseball is wrong: Man with four balls cannot walk Panties not best thing on earth! But next best thing on earth War does not determine who is right, war determine who is left Man who fight with wife all day get no piece at night Man who drive like hell, bound to get there Man who stand on toilet is high on pot Man who live in glass house should change clothes in basement Man who fish in other man's well often catch crabs Man who fart in church sit in own pew

Smart politicians Kjell Magne Bondevik goes to Washington for a meeting with Bill Clinton. After dinner, Bill says to Kjell " Well Kjell, I don't know what you think of the members of your Cabinet, but mine are all bright and brilliant." "How do you know?" asks Kjell Magne. "Oh well, it's simple", says Bill. "They all have to take special tests before they can be a minister. Wait a second". He calls Madeleine Albright over and says to her "Tell me Madeleine, who is the child of your father and of your mother who is not your brother and is not your sister?" Ah, that's simple Mr. President", says Madeleine, "it is me!" "Well done Madeleine," says Clinton and Kjell Magne Bondevik are very impressed. Kjell Magne Bondevik returns to Oslo and wonders about the intelligence of the members of his Cabinet. He calls in Lars Sponheim and says: "Lars, tell me, who is the child of your father and of your mother who is not your brother and is not your sister?" Lars thinks and thinks and doesn't know the answer. "Can I think about it a bit further Kjell ? May I let you know tomorrow?" "Of course," says Bondevik, "you've got 24 hours." Lars Sponheim goes away, thinks as hard as he can, calls in his team, but no-one knows the answer. 20 hours later, Lars is very worried - still no answer and only 4 hours to go. Eventually Lars Sponheim says "I'll ask Gudmund Restad, he's clever, he'll know the answer." He calls Restad. "Gudmund," he says, "tell me who is the child of your father and of your mother who is not your brother and is not your sister?" "Very simple", says Gudmund, "it's me!" "Of course" says Lars and calls Kjell Magne Bondevik. "Kjell Magne", says Lars, "I've got the answer: it's Gudmund Restad". "No you idiot", says Bondevik, "it's Madeleine Albright".
