A man is driving down a deserted highway, and notices a sign that
reads: SISTERS OF MERCY HOUSE OF PROSTITUTION - 10 MILES.
He thinks it was a figment of his imagination and drives on. Soon, he sees another sign which says... SISTERS OF MERCY HOUSE OF PROSTITUTION - 5 MILES.
Realizing these signs are for real, he drives on, and sure enough,
there is a third... SISTERS OF MERCY HOUSE OF PROSTITUTION - NEXT RIGHT.
His curiosity gets the best of him, and he pulls into the driveway. On the far side of the parking lot, is a somber stone building with a
sign on the door that reads... SISTERS OF MERCY. He climbs the steps, rings the bell, and a nun answers the door in a long black habit, who asks "What may we do for you, my son?"
"I saw your signs along the highway, and was interested in possibly
doing some business," he answers.
"Very well, my son. Please follow me," says the nun.
He is led through many winding passages, and soon he is very
disoriented. The nun stops at a closed door and tells the man,
"Please, knock on this door" and leaves. The man does as he is told, and this door is opened by another nun in a long black habit, holding a tin cup. This nun instructs "Please place $50.00 in the cup, then go through the large wooden door at the end of this hallway." He places the money in this nuns tin cup. He trots eagerly down the hallway, and slips through the door, pulling it shut.
As the door locks behind him, he finds himself back in the parking lot, facing another small sign: "Go In Peace. You have just been
screwed by the Sisters Of Mercy."

Nice bit of Aprils Fools Day humour from TC Electronics.



The website for it is a good laugh too.

Superman and Snow White go to a carnival. As they are walking past one of the tents, Snow White notices a banner across the opening saying, 'Worlds Most Beautiful Woman Contest'. She looks at Superman and says please just wait a minute. She enters the tent and 15 mins later she walks out with a ribbon and trophy and a big cheeky grin. She says to Superman I just had to do it, of course I’m the most beautiful woman in the world..

As they walked on further Superman looks up and sees another tent promoting the Worlds Strongest Man Contest.. He looks at Snow White and says, "I gotta do this just wait a minute.."

15 minutes later Superman walks out with smirk carrying a huge trophy and says "Too easy, of course I’m the worlds strongest man."

As they walk further they come across Pinocchio at the end of line going into a tent.

They ask what he is doing and he replies "I’m entering the Worlds Best Liar Contest. This shouldn’t take long wait for me."

An hour and a half later Pinocchio comes out sweating and cursing, kicking the dirt and pebbles around. He looks at Superman and Snow White and says.. ….

Two rednecks are fishing on their respective sides of the crick.

Just as soon as one redneck put his line in the water, he slung a fish onto the bank.

The other was catching nothing, so he yelled out, "Buddy, I'd sure like to be on your side of the crick!"

"Aight, tell ya whut, I'll shine my flashlight 'cross this river, and you can walk across this little beam of light!" the redneck yelled back.

The other replied, "T'ain't no way, buddy. I know you think I'm a fool! When I get halfway 'cross, you'll turn your flashlight off." !!
