A man without a penny

Updated on April 29, 2013

A man without a penny

On the way to market a man rode a jeepney.  Being a custom in the Philippines, the conductor would immediately collect  the fare from the passengers.

Now the conductor have reached the man.  “I have no penny” the man said.

Feeling a little bit embarrassed the conductor politely said “OK, I’ll just go back to you later.”

On realizing that market is fast approaching, where all the passengers will disembark, the conductor returned to the man and affirmatively said “OK, if you don’t have a penny please give me your bill that I now have enough change for you!”

“Are you idiot!” the man angrily shouted and he reasoned, “If I don’t have a penny, how much more of a bill?”

The man get off the jeepney without paying his fare.

Exchange of heads

Exchange of heads

There was an affluent corpse that happens to be in a company of a pauper corpse in the morgue.

The embalmer inadvertently switched their suits.

The relatives of the rich corpse, realized that their dead is wearing the wrong suit; and that his suit is worn to the pauper corpse.

Hence the embalmer is to blame.  He is in a hurry in exchanging back their suits.  But he realized that it is impossible to exchange the clothes of the two corpses, due to the effect of the embalming chemicals. 

He thinks very deep, and he decided to switch their heads instead.  He cut both their (the corpses) heads, switched them, and he stitched the joints so that it wont be removed when bump.  In just 30 minutes his job was finished.

The coss-eyed driver.

A man said to his friend, while they are riding in a jeepney, "My friend, you know, I think we could economize if I would be the one to pay our fare." The other guy is puzzled and responded, "Why, do you know the jeepney driver?"

"I didn't know him but, I saw this driver is a cross-eyed man." he said. He whisper to his friend, "You know if I give that man one peso he will see it double. So I think by giving him one peso he will assume that we paid him two pesos already. In that way we could save half our our fare."

At the jeepney stop the two handed their fare, and they gave only one peso. And the driver said to them, "Why is it that your fare is short?" The passenger said, "Did we not gave you two pesos already?" In reply the driver shouted "Yes, I know you gave me two pesos already but you are four passengers."
