Subj:     Indians Drink "Divine" Sea Water (S501c)
          From: Khaleej Times 19-Aug-06
          From: jerry on 8/20/2006

 News article from a newspaper.

 MUMBAI - Thousands of Indians drank from a murky Arabian
 Sea creek after news spread overnight that its water had
 miraculously turned sweet and could cure illnesses, police
 said on Saturday.

 About 5,000 people gathered at the creek in India's biggest
 city of Mumbai overnight, and many of them were seen
 drinking the dirty water with their palms, they said.

 "Sweet seawater, this is a miracle. This water is divine,"
 Sheikh Naseer, a Mumbai resident, told a local TV news
 channel.  He was also shown giving a young boy a bath in
 the creek's murky waters that receive thousands of tonnes
 of sewage and industrial waste every day.

 Some people carried seawater away in bottles and plastic
 bags, saying they were going to share it with their families.
 Children as well as adults bathed in the murky water in which
 garbage and plastic were seen floating.

 Police said the news spread after some fishermen tasted the
 water and found it sweet and told local residents about it.
 "There has been a mad rush to the creek.  There is a dargah
 nearby and people felt this is something divine," said S.
 Kumar, a police officer, referring to an Islamic mausoleum
 in the area.

 But police stepped in and stopped people from going to the
 creek on Saturday after authorities and doctors warned that
 the water could be polluted and drinking it could be dangerous.

 Mumbai's civic officials said the water could have temporarily
 lost its salinity due to several reasons, including pollution
 and inflow of freshwater from a nearby source.

 "We have collected a sample of the water and sent it for
 testing," a city official said, adding that the water in the
 creek had returned to being saline.

 Last year three people drowned in the Arabian Sea off Mumbai
 after thousands of people made a dash for a beach where
 diamonds were rumoured to be washing ashore.

Subj:     Passage To Adulthood in Thailand (S476)
          From: LABLaughsAdult on 2/20/2006

 In Thailand, when a male reaches the age of 18 they are
 invited to participate in a ceremony of passage to adult-
 hood, which is celebrated in the center of the village,
 surrounding the central fire and attended by the all the
 natives in residence, and accompanied by considerable
 consumption of food an drink amid singing, dancing and
 all manner of joyous festivities.

 At the appointed time the native boys that are reaching
 maturity are formed into a large circle around the fire
 and stand there motionless and stark naked facing
 inward towards the fire.

 Then, accompanied by a haunting musical rendition of
 native music, the most beautiful girl in the village is
 honered to perform a sexy dance, naked, around the inner
 center circle.

 Behind each boy is a naked native girl that he cannot
 see.. As soon as all the males are excited and have
 erections, the girls behind them reach between their
 legs, and pull their erect unit downward and back
 through and then on a signal all release them.

 Their units spring back up and go loudly  "WHAP"
 against their bellies. This is considered measurement
 of their strength and of youthful masculinity.

 And that's why the capital of Thailand is called
 Bangkok.

........./won-park-the-master-of-origami-paper-folding/

.(See "Unusual Origami Method" above)

 Origami is the traditional Japanese art of paper folding.
 The goal of this art is to create a representation of an
 object using geometric folds and crease patterns preferably
 without the use of gluing or cutting the paper, and using
 only one piece of paper.

 Won Park is the master of Origami.  He is also called the
 "money folder", a practitioner of origami whose canvas is
 the one or two United States One Dollar Bills.  Bending,
 twisting, and folding, he creates life-like shapes in
 stunning detail inspired by objects living and not.

Subj:     Three Bodies At Japanese Morgue (S207)
          From: Joke-Of-The-Day.com on 1/15/2001

 Three dead bodies turn up at the mortuary, all with very big
 smiles on their faces.  The coroner calls the police to show
 them what has happened.

 A Detective Inspector is sent and is taken straight to the
 first body. "A Sato, 60, died of heart failure whilst making
 love to his mistress.  Hence the enormous smile Inspector",
 says the Coroner.

 The Detective is taken to the second dead man.

 "A Tamura, 25, won the lottery, spent it all on Brandy.
 Died of alcohol poisoning, hence the smile."

 "Nothing unusual here", thinks the Detective, and asks to
 be shown the last body.

 "Ah," says the coroner, "this is the most unusual one. A
 Soho, 30, struck by lightning."

 "Why is he smiling then?" inquires the Detective.

 To which the coroner replies: "Thought he was having his
 picture taken".

 For centuries, Hindu women have worn a red spot on their
 foreheads.  We have naively thought it had something to
 do with their religion.

 The true story has just been revealed by the Indian Embassy
 in Washington.  When one of these women gets married, on
 her wedding night, the husband scratches off the red spot
 to see if he has won a convenience store, a gas station,
 or a motel in Florida.  If not, he must take a job in
 India answering telephones giving technical support.

 Regarding our story of the new Japanese style of apparently
 see-through skirts, it appears that the newspaper, and there-
 fore we as well, were fooled by a hoax.  It looks like I
 won't need to make that "important trip" to Japan after all.

Subj:     Extortion Korean Style (286c)
          From: jerry on 7/24/2002
 A Korean man sent form letters to 250 randomly selected
 Korean corporate executives claiming to have evidence of
 their adulterous behavior and threatening to go public
 with his evidence unless they sent him a million won.
 Nine executives sent him the money before his arrest for
 extortion.

 The executives who paid said they did so, not because they
 were having affairs, but to prevent bad publicity.

          From: jerry on 11/7/2001
 If it looks like a Laden, walks like a Laden .

 An Indian man who looks like Osama bin Laden was ordered
 out of town because he's been attracting huge crowds.

 Kind of wondering wherever he can move to.

Subj:     Mahatma Gandhi (S123, S610c)
          From: joeleon on 8/3/2004
      and From: hellgunner50 on 9/16/2008
 (Also see 'Ghandi Pun' in WORD_JOKES2)
 Mahatma Gandhi, as you know, walked barefoot most of the
 time, which produced an impressive set of callouses on his
 feet. He also ate very little, which made him rather frail
 and with his odd diet, he suffered from bad breath. This
 made him what?

 A super calloused fragile mystic hexed by halitosis..

 The flag of the Philippines is the only national flag that
 is flown differently during times of peace or war.  A
 portion of the flag is blue, while the other is red.  The
 blue portion is flown on top in time of peace and the red
 portion is flown in war time.

 In 1983, a Japanese artist made a copy of the Mona Lisa
     completely out of toast.
 

 From 'International Sex Laws' in LAWS file.

 The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation.
 (wonder how they enforce that one??)

 There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the
 countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for
 the privilege of having sex for the first time.  Reason:
 under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to
 marry. (now let's just think for a minute...is there any
 job anywhere else in the world that even comes close to
 this?)

 In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill
 her adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare
 hands. (the husband's lover, on the other hand, may be
 killed in any manner desired).
