Attitudinal Enhancement - Laugh & Learn

Humour is fun, and a great source of learning too.  See for yourself.


A lady was walking down the road with a dog.

A man approached them and said to the Lady “Does your dog bite?”

The Lady said, "No. My dog does not bite.”

The Man smiled and stroked the dog - it instantly bit him hard.

The Man shouted at the Lady, “Hey! I thought you said your dog does not bite!!”

The Lady replied - "That's not my dog.”


LEARNING - avoid assumptions, ensure clarity before taking actions.


A kangaroo kept getting out of his enclosure at the zoo. After re-capturing the kangaroo, the zoo keeper put up a ten–foot fence. However, next morning the kangaroo was out again, roaming around the zoo. The fence was extended to twenty feet. Yet again the kangaroo managed to get out. The frustrated zoo officials then built a fence that was forty feet high.

A camel in next enclosure asked the kangaroo. “How much higher will they go.”

Kangaroo replied, “Maybe thousand feet, unless somebody starts locking the gate.”


LEARNING - root cause analysis is essential for solving problems effectively.


A man and his wife are dining in a plush restaurant, and the husband keeps staring at a drunken lady swigging her drink as she sits alone at a nearby table.

The wife asks, “Do you know her?”

“Yes,” sighs the husband. “She is my ex-girlfriend. She took to drinking right after we split up seven years ago, and I hear she hasn’t been sober since then.”

“My God!” says the wife. “Who would think a person can go on celebrating that long?”


LEARNING – embrace diverse perspectives to understand situations.


A man feared his wife wasn’t hearing as well as she used to and he thought she might need a hearing aid. Not quite sure how to approach her, he called the family doctor to discuss the problem. The doctor told him to perform a simple test.


“Here’s what you do,” said the Doctor, “stand about 40 feet away from her and speak to her in your normal conversational speaking tone. See if she hears you. If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a response.”


That evening the man decided to test his wife’s hearing. Since she was in the kitchen cooking, he stood 40 feet away in the bedroom and asked in his normal tone, “honey, what’s cooking?” No response.


So he moved into the drawing room, 20 feet away and asked again, “honey, what’s cooking?” No response.


He moved even closer, 10 feet away and repeated his question “honey, what’s cooking?”  No response. 


Frustrated, he walked into the kitchen, stood right behind her and asked “honey, what’s cooking?”


“James, for the FOURTH time……CHICKEN!”


LEARNING - the problem is not always ‘them.’ Look inward first before blaming others.         


Laugh and learn.
