Bom Dia Todos,

Yesterday we paid Mr Cheers a visit in Petts Wood ( Mr Cheers is this funny waiter in a Chinese restaurant - he keeps on saying "thank you, cheers" all the time ). Karine ordered her maincourse "lottery style": close your eyes, open the menu, put your finger on the menu, open your eyes and.....Surpriiise!! Result: Grilled Sole Peking Style ( hmm, not for me, thanks ).

5 minutes after ordering I capture that weird look on Karine's face. I follow her look to an aquarium in the corner with some 10 to 15 goldfish...From behind, a hand is trying to grab something in the aquarium...No, could it be?? When the maincourse comes, we thoroughly check the size of the beast on the plate. Hmmm yeah, I think we're safe, doesn't match the size of any of the little ones in the aquarium. Thank you, cheers!

Have a nice day


There's this white ecologist working with an African tribe, and one day the tribe elder comes to him and says, "My wife just had just a baby, and it's white. You're the only white man within hundreds of miles of here." The ecologist gulps and says, "Well, some things in nature just can't be explained. Look at that herd of goats, for example. All of them are white except for that one black goat. This is probably like that." Finally, the Tribe elder nods and says, "Well, all right, I'll keep quiet about my white baby, if you'll keep quiet about that black goat."
