Question Time

How did the Blonde hide the picture on her desktop?

Today is all about questions, are you primed and ready?

I warned you of a test coming up on cricket, I hope that you paid
attention as the penalty for failure in this test is that you must read
all my posts for the next week!

(Q 1) Against who did Australia play the test series?

(Q 2) Name the three Australian players who retired?

(Q 3) What position does the close in fieldsman take to a right
handed batsman?

(Q 4) To whom was the original Ashes urn presented?

(Q 5) What is rule 6 in the rules of cricket?

OK if you are still with us at this stage you are very probably an
Australian and in case there is more than one of you the deciding
question is in three parts;

(Q 6a) Where was the final game of the series played?

(Q 6b) How many people attended the final days play?

(Q 6c) What were their names and home addresses?

Should a tie still exist after these questions….

Get a life… and get over it.

Do you think these companies thought it through?

All of these are legitimate companies that didn't spend quite enough
time considering how their online names might appear...
and be misread

1. Who Represents is where you can find the name of the agent that
represents any celebrity. Their Web site is;

2. Experts Exchange is a knowledge base where programmers can
exchange advice and views at;

3. Looking for a pen? Look no further than Pen Island at;

4. Need a therapist? Try Therapist Finder at;

5. There's the Italian Power Generator company;

6. And don't forget the Mole Station Native Nursery in NSW;

7. If you're looking for IP solutions, there's always;

8. The First Cumming Methodist Church Web site is;

9. And the designers at Speed of Art await you at their Web site;

These sites all open and appear legitimate although #5 is
"under construction"

It must've been a man who designed the blonde joke, 'cause any woman can find a better pic on the net. Ha!

Love the song! I haven't heard that one in ages!

I only know the crickets that chirp and hop. I guess I'll have to take the punishment you have dealt out!
