Warning: DO NOT drink a beverage while reading this

First, something serious.
If you want to do something about Flush Limberger, there's an online petition to sign here.


Tom sent me this link yesterday right before he had to teach. (We got loads of snow and I was hoping like a third grader they would cancel class so he'd get home before 10:30PM-- he's teaching Astronomy again this semester so they have to hold class at night. Stupid stars keeping my husband out so late :)

According to his email subject line (and I quote directly): "Funniest sh*t I've read in a while"

I love Tom.

Enjoy:

Council and housing association complaints

The following are real extracts from actual complaint letters sent to various councils and housing associations throughout the UK.

I want some repairs done to my cooker as it has backfired and burnt my knob off.

I wish to complain that my father hurt his ankle very badly when he put his foot in the hole in his back passage, and their 18 year old son is continually banging his balls against my fence.

I wish to report that tiles are missing from the outside toilet roof. I think it was bad wind the other night that blew them off.

My lavatory seat is cracked, where do I stand.

I am writing on behalf of my sink, which is coming away from the wall.

Will you please send someone to mend the garden path. My wife tripped and fell on it yesterday and now she is pregnant. We are getting married in September and we would like it in the garden before we move into the house.

I request permission to remove my drawers in the kitchen.

50% of the walls are damp, 50% have crumbling plaster and the rest are plain filthy.

I am still having problems with smoke in my new drawers.

The toilet is blocked and we cannot bath the children until it is cleared.

Will you please send a man to look at my water, it is a funny colour and not fit to drink.

Our lavatory seat is broken in half and is now in three pieces.

Would you please send a man to repair my spout. I am an old age pensioner and need it badly.

I want to complain about the farmer across the road; every morning at 6am his cock wakes me up, and its now getting too much for me.

The man next door has a large erection in the back garden, which is unsightly and dangerous.

Our kitchen floor is damp. We have two children and would like a third so please send someone round to do something about it.

I am a single woman living in a downstairs flat and would you please do something about the noise made by the man I have on top of me every night.

Please send a man with the right tool to finish the job and satisfy my wife.

I have had the clerk of the works down on the floor six times but I still have no satisfaction.

This is to let you know that our lavatory seat is broken and we can’t get BBC2.

My bush is really overgrown round the front and my back passage has fungus growing in it,

… and he’s got this huge tool that vibrates the whole house and I just can't take it anymore.

... that is his excuse for dogs mess that I find hard to swallow.

Happy, Happy Hump Day

PS: As if we needed another reason to be proud of our new prez, The Equal Pay for Equal Work bill will pass today. Tomorrow, it will be the first bill signed by our new president. It is indeed a new day in America!

So funny! I love the math in some of these. Good for a laugh on a cold Wed.

Thanks for the laugh! I think my 5 year old is better at fractions than these folks. ;)

I've seen these before. They still make me laugh. Gotta love the English. (pun)

She has a loud cock that wakes me up every morning and its just getting too much for me.

waggles eyebrows,.

FIVE COCKS!

What're you running there, Seeing Eye, a "stable"?

I know, I know, they're roosters.

Remember a while back you offered me a deal on chicken poop? :)

They are pooping machines. Full of Nitrogen Goodness. You definitely want to make sure that you compost it long enough and cut that poop with plenty of other composted materials.

I didn't believe you and ended up with gatorade up my nose. Next time I'll listen.
