A man was stranded on his island by a flood. A boat came to rescue him but the man said: 'I'll stay! God will save me!' The tide rose and the man had to stand on the roof of his house. A helicopter flew by and offered to save him but the man rejected help once again. The man drowned and entered heaven. He asked God why he didn't save him. God replied: 'I sent a boat and a helicopter. What more do you want?'

One day, my friend went to apply for a job. After filling out the application form, she waited anxiously for the outcome. The employer read her application and said, 'We have an opening for people like you.' 'Oh, great,' she said, 'What is it?' 'It's called the door!' This isn't the funniest joke but it always cracks me up when I think about it.

A man with a peg leg, hook hand and an eyepatch went to apply to be a pirate.

Interviewer: How did you get that peg leg?

Pirate: Arrr, I got me leg shot off during the first world war.

Pirate: I got me hand cut off by a big knife.

Interviewer: What about your eyepatch?

Pirate: I looked up into the sky one rainy day and a bird crapped in me eye.

Interviewer: And that put your eye out?

Pirate: No, it was the day after I got me hook.
