How about we have a joke of the day? Each day someone could put up a good joke to put a smile on everyones face! We would have to keep them clean of course! Or a brain teaser. Here's one....Three guys go into a hotel, the clerk says the room is 30 bucks. Each guy gives 10 bucks. The Manager come in and tells the clerk "that room is on for 25" so he gives the clerk 5 one dollar bills to give the guys back. Not wanting to split 5 bucks three ways he gives each guy 1 buck back and puts 2 in his pocket. Now each guy has paid 9 bucks, ...three times 9 is 27, plus the 2 bucks in his pocket....equals 29....where's the other buck?

I think I got it.


Me thinks I have the answer. The clerk is one of the three guys. Now two of them each have $1 back in their pocket. The third guy (clerk) also has $1 back in his pocket plus the other $2 he snagged, like the greedy bastard that he is.

OK here is one for the "missing DR"

Hay un borracho frente a la playa y grita desesperadamente:
?Una ballena, una ballena!
Y todas las personas salen de la playa, luego viene el salvavidas, y pregunta:
?D?nde, d?nde est? la ballena?
Y el borracho le dice:
No chico, es que se me cayeron dos botellas de ron, ?Y una va llena!

Did your hear????????

About the man who travelled from Puerto Rico on an airline flight to Barahona and brought six suitcases and after he went thru customs asked for a baggage carrier, who took his luggage to the taxi cab area, and to the baggage carrier's surprise when he got to the curbside three donkeys were waiting there with the travellers's family awaiting and the luggage was loaded into the burros and they very happily galloped away without any inhibitions.

True story from Dominican newspapers and Ultima Hora.

On the serious side, but with a funny end......

The new Chief Of Police General Marte Martinez had the past Police Chief Candelier's police guard and escort group arrested because they reported to Candelier's new office at AMET without authorization. This action should get the 2002 Chutzpah Award. Candelier is still a Major General of the Police, the highest ranking alongside the new chief and as called for his rank could have an entire batallion with him should he wish it.

In addition, the new Police Chief did not see to it that new instructions were given to the group as to their new assignments, if any. Nice way to start a new job!!!

I can't wait now for Candelier to get his revenge. If I were him I would post five AMET agents on their fast motocrosses by the New Chief's house and wait for his family's car to take his wife shopping and watch the driver's every move, and as soon as a violation is committed have the driver arrested and the car impounded. Go Go Candelier!!

I got an answer, Buckaroo. They paid 30 bucks, less 3 bucks returned makes 27(nine bucks a head)...less 2 bucks kept by the clerk...leaves 25... the cost of the room. You have to substract 2 bucks instead of adding.

You can keep the $.

the new number is 27

Doug, once you get back the 3 dollars, the number 30 is no longer in the picture. 27 is the only number that matters. since the manager kept 25....then the clerk has 2..and bingo...it adds up every which way!!!
