  1. A man wanted to join a monastery, where they sold fish and chips to sustain themselves financially. When the man in charge told him to report to the man in the kitchen, he went there, and asked the first man he saw, “Are you the fish friar?” to which he replied, “No, I’m the chip monk!”

  2. A guy was applying for a job as a switchman on the railroad. The interviewer asked him to imagine that he was standing at his assigned switch with instructions to hold it in a certain position. “But you looked up the tracks and saw a train coming, and then looked down the tracks to see another train coming from the other direction, and it was clear that if you didn’t move the switch, the two trains would surely collide head-on!” said the interviewer. “What would you do?” The man said, “I’d run to find a phone!” “And who would you call?” said the interviewer, “I’d call my brother!” said the man. “Why in the world would you call your brother?” asked the interviewer, to which the man replied, “My brother’s never seen a train wreck!”

  3. On a warm summer day, a man was walking down a country road towards a lake, when he encountered a younger man coming up from the lake, carrying about a dozen large rainbow trout on a stringer. “Wow!” said the older man. “That’s a fine mess of fish! Where’d you get them?” The young man held up the fish with a broad grin and, pointing a thumb over his shoulder, said, “Right back there in that lake.” The older man said, “I’ve been fishing in that lake nearly all my life, and I’ve never seen trout like that!” The young man lowered his voice and said, “Well, come on down, and I’ll show you my secret.”
    So, they walked down to the shore, got into a small boat, and rowed well out into the lake. Then suddenly the young man pulled a stick of dynamite from his back pocket, lit it, and tossed it into the lake! The blast was deafening, as dozens of fish floated to the surface, dazed or killed by the shock wave, while the man scooped them into a large net. “Purty easy, huh?” he said. To which the other man replied, “Yeah, but you know, I work for the state, and I’m what you call a game warden.”
    The young man didn’t bat an eye, as he grabbed another stick of dynamite, lit it, and slapped it into the game warden’s hand. “Now!” he exclaimed, “Are you going to talk about work?…. or fish!”
