No Fo'get - Act Busy ; )

September 26th, 2008
By

Long time we nevah have unproductive Fridays so hea's two to get you started from of course Hawaii's own "Excel" game creator Tracy Nishibun!

Since the college football season has started, here's one to test your NCAA helmet "logo" savy. And yeah, we do know no mo' Hawaii in 'dea........ Wassap Wit Dat!

Mahalos to munch fo' sending it!  :wink:

NCAA HELMET LOGO QUIZ

And not to be out done, we have a Vegas quiz too to occupy the rest of da day with.

VEGAS HOTEL QUIZ 

Mahalos to Ynaku fo' forwarding dat one as well!

 

And of course so you no get busted, you can tell yo' boss dat you was taking an online management course. Enjoy da presentation.  :wink:

Lesson 1:  
A man is getting into the shower just as his wife is finishing up her shower, when the doorbell rings. The wife quickly wraps herself in a towel and runs downstairs. When she opens the door, there stands Bob, the next-door neighbor.  

Before she says a word, Bob says, 'I'll give you $800 to drop that towel.'  

After thinking for a moment, the woman drops her towel and stands naked in front of Bob, after a few seconds, Bob hands her $800 and leaves. The woman wraps back up in the towel and goes back upstairs.  

When she gets to the bathroom, her husband asks, 'Who was that?'  

'It was Bob the next door neighbour,' she replies.  

'Great,' the husband says, 'did he say anything about the $800 he owes me?'  

Moral of the story:  
If you share critical information pertaining to credit and risk with your shareholders in time, you may be in a position to prevent avoidable exposure.  
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lesson 2:  
A priest offered a Nun a lift. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg.  

The priest nearly had an accident.  

After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?'  

The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again.  
The nun once again said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?'  

The priest apologized 'Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.'  

Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129. It said, 'Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.'  

Moral of the story:  
If you are not well informed in your job, you might miss a great opportunity.  
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lesson 3:  
A sales rep, an administration clerk, and the manager are walking to lunch when they find an antique oil lamp.  They rub it and a Genie comes out.  

The Genie says, 'I'll give each of you just one wish.'  

'Me first! Me first!' says the admin clerk. 'I want to be in the Bahamas , driving a speedboat, without a care in the world.'  Puff! She's gone.  

'Me next! Me next!' says the sales rep. 'I want to be in Hawaii , relaxing on the beach with my personal masseuse, an endless supply of Pina Coladas and the love of my life.'  Puff! He's gone.  

'OK, you're up,' the Genie says to the manager.  

The manager says, 'I want those two back in the office after lunch.'  

Moral of the story:  
Always let your boss have the first say.  
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lesson 4  
An eagle was sitting on a tree resting, doing nothing.  

A small rabbit saw the eagle and asked him, 'Can I also sit like you and do nothing?'  
The eagle answered: 'Sure, why not.'  

So, the rabbit sat on the ground below the eagle and rested. All of a sudden, a fox appeared, jumped on the rabbit and ate it.  

Moral of the story:  
To be sitting and doing nothing, you must be sitting very, very high up.  
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Lesson 5  
A turkey was chatting with a bull.  

'I would love to be able to get to the top of that tree' sighed the turkey, 'but I haven't got the energy.'  

'Well, why don't you nibble on some of my droppings?' replied the bull. They're packed with nutrients.'  

The turkey pecked at a lump of dung, and found it actually gave him enough str ength to reach the lowest branch of the tree.  

The next day, after eating some more dung, he reached the second branch.  

Finally after a fourth night, the turkey was proudly perched at the top of the tree.  

He was promptly spotted by a farmer, who shot him out of the tree.  

Moral of the story:  
Bull $h!t might get you to the top, but it won't keep you there.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  

Lesson 6  
A little bird was flying south for the winter. It was so cold the bird froze and fell to the ground into a large field.  

While he was lying there, a cow came by and dropped some dung on him.  

As the frozen bird lay there in the pile of cow dung, he began to realize how warm he was. The dung was actually thawing him out!  

He lay there all warm and happy, and soon began to sing for joy. A passing cat heard the bird singing and came to investigate.  

Following the sound, the cat discovered the bird under the pile of cow dung, and promptly dug him out and ate him.  

Morals of the story:  
(1) Not everyone who $h!t$ on you is your enemy.  

(2) Not everyone who gets you out of $h!t is your  
friend.

(3) And when you're in deep $h!t, it's best to keep  
your mouth shut!  
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THUS ENDS THE FIVE MINUTE MANAGEMENT COURSE  

Mahalos to sassy7 fo' dat one!

  
SHOUT OUT:Mahalos to Tracy Nishibun fo' giving WWD! permission to publish his creations. Aftah emailing each oddah, I found out da Braddah Tracy's Candy Quiz went national - from Louisiana to New York, from Maryland to Illinois, from North Carolina to Washington DC, from Alabama to Pennsylvania and he is stoked about it.... us too Braddah Tracy! He's also working on creating a website fo' all his quizzes so stay tuned!

And in lieu of Da Pidgin Word Of Da Day, I got two tickets to da UH/San Jose State game. Seats are pretty good imho (going off memory cause tickets are at home), it's da brown section HH so you're covered from da rain and I think it's between da 30-40 yard line.

Hea's how you win 'em. Next week, we get one bbq fo' da Fresno St. game and cause you all know I love to eat (who doesn't), let me know your favorite tailgate/potluck recipe. If you no like share da "secret" online, shoot me an email offline but at least post wat you call 'em so da people know you wen post. If you no mo' recipe, share wat your favorite "gotta have" foods are or your own potluck story!

We'll all vote who's da ono'est, funniest, most creative but hea's da kicker... if there's "77" in any of the counts (votes or posts) you'll win 'em! But watch out, if go ovah, da next numbah is "177" and so forth. Dreaming hea but, if WWD! hits "777", you win - guarans bombarans!

I'll try and tally up the votes and and post them as we go along but I not perfect so no buss' my olo's eh! Told you WWD! not easy.... you earn 'em hea!  :wink:  Let's call da cutoff at noon Saturday so dat you get chance fo' tailgate and I'll personally drop them off to you.

Happy Feel Good Friday! 

Game on!
