Saturday’s smiles

* What’s a Grecian urn? A lot less than a few years ago.

* What’s Greece’s capital? About 20 euros.

* A Greek, an Irishman and a Portuguese woman order drinks in a bar, who picks up the tab?  A German.

* Why is the Eurozone like a dirty frying pan? They’ve both got Greece at the bottom.

*The Eurozone has changed its Facebook currency status from single to it’s complicated.

* The European Union is advertising a new tender for printing euro – they’re looking for someone who can do it on Greece-proof paper.

* A small Spanish village twinned with a similar village in Greece.

To celebrate the twinning, the Greek mayor visited his Spanish counterpart.

He was very impressed by the Spaniard’s palatial home an asked how the mayor of a small village could afford such luxury.

The Spanish mayor said, “See that bridge over there? The EU gave us a grant to construct a two-lane bridge but we built a one-lane bridge with traffic lights at both ends and I was able to build my home with the money saved.

The following year the Spanish mayor visited her Greek counterpart and was amazed by his large and expensively fitted-out mansion.

She asked how the mayor of a small Greek village could afford such a home.

He said, “See that bridge over there?”

The Spanish mayor replied, “No.”

    An Indian Doctor can’t find a job in a Hospital in the US, so he opens a clinic and puts a sign outside

    ‘GET TREATMENT FOR $20 – IF NOT CURED GET BACK $100.’

    An American lawyer thinks this is a great opportunity to earn $100 and goes to the clinic…

    Lawyer: “I have lost my sense of taste.”

    Indian: “Nurse, bring medicine from box no. 22 and put 3 drops in patient’s mouth.”

    Lawyer: “Ugh… this is kerosene.”

    Indian: “Congrats, your sense of taste is restored. Give me $20.”

    The annoyed lawyer goes back after a few days to recover his money…

    Lawyer: “I have lost my memory. I cannot remember anything.”

    Indian: “Nurse, bring medicine from box no. 22 and put 3 drops in his mouth.”

    Lawyer (annoyed): “This is kerosene. You gave this to me last time for restoring my taste.”

    Indian: “Congrats. You got your memory back. Give me $20.”

    The fuming lawyer pays him, and then comes back a week later determined to get back $100.

    Lawyer: “My eyesight has become very weak I can’t see at all.”

    Indian: “Well, I don’t have any medicine for that, so take this $100.”

    Lawyer (staring at the note): “But this is $20, not $100!!”

    Indian: “Congrats, your eyesight is restored. Give me $20”

    There is a village in Wales with the name, Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, the only part I can pronounce is the last three syllables… Go-Go- GOK

    Lunch at Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, Anglesey, North Wales…

    On a beautiful summer’s day, two American tourists were driving through Wales.

    At Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch, they stopped for lunch.

    They said to the waitress, “Before we order, I wonder if you could settle an argument for us by pronouncing where we are, but very, very, very slowly please?”…

    The girl leaned over and said, “Burrr gurrr king.”
