1. Hilarious! A Lesson from Ancient History

Once upon a time there was a king who wanted to go fishing. He called the royal weather forecaster and inquired about the weather forecast for the next few hours. The weatherman assured him that there was no chance of rain in the coming days.
So the king went fishing with his wife, the queen.

On the way he met a farmer on his donkey. Upon seeing the king the farmer said, "Your Majesty, you should return to the palace at once because in just a short time I expect a huge amount of rain to fall in this area".
The king was polite and considerate, he replied: "I hold the palace meteorologist in high regard. He is an extensively educated and experienced professional, and I pay him very high wages. He gave me a very different forecast. I trust him and I will continue on my way." So they did.
However, a short time later a torrential rain fell from the sky. The King and Queen were totally soaked and their entourage chuckled upon seeing them in such a shameful condition.
Furious, the king returned to the palace and gave the order to fire the weatherman at once! Then he summoned the farmer and offered him the prestigious and high paying role of royal forecaster. 
The farmer said, "Your Majesty, I do not know anything about forecasting. I obtain my information from my donkey. If I see my donkey's ears drooping, it means with certainty that it will rain." So instead, the King hired the donkey on the spot. 
And thus began the ancient-old practice of hiring asses to work in the government and occupy its highest and most influential positions...

2. Go Ahead and Buy What You Like Honey, It's Not A Problem 

Several men are in the locker room of a golf club.

A mobile phone on a bench rings and a man answers it, engaging the loudspeaker function as he does so. Everyone in the room stops to listen to the conversation.
"Hey babe, I'm at the city center mall now and I found this gorgeous coat. It's only $1,000. Can I buy it?" asks the woman at the other end.
"Sure, if you like it then go ahead!" replies the man.
"I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the new 2016 models. There's one I LOVE and it's $98,000," the woman continues.
"Okay, go ahead and buy it. Just make sure it comes with all the options for that price though," the man says.
Pushing her luck even further, the woman asks: "Do you remember that house I wanted last year? Well, it's back on the market for $980,000…"
"Make an offer of $900,000 – they'll probably accept it. Go to $950,000 if you think it's a really good price for the house," the man replies.
"Okay honey, see you later! I love you so much – you're so good to me," the woman says.
"You're worth it. Goodbye dear," replies the man, and hangs up the call.
By this point, the men in the room are aghast, mouths wide open.
The man says: "Hey guys, does anyone know whose phone this is?"
