Slap me one more time…

September 2, 2013 |  by  |  Linkedin Blog

My wife tells me I’ve mellowed over the years.

But the bottle of brown sauce was severely testing this view.


Despite vigorous shaking and slapping, it wasn’t ready to yield its contents.

Just as I was about to give up, my 9 year old son Aran grabbed the bottle and chirped, “Let me have a go.”

And with just one more slap, out flowed the brown stuff.

As the Tao says, “The road to failure is the path of least persistence.”

Success awaits those who can conquer the


and lay a firm foundation with the bricks that others throw at them.


– A woman took her young son to a psychiatrist because he had attention deficit disorder. “How long have you had it?” asked the psychiatrist. “I’m going bowling tonight,” replied the boy.

– On his way home after a successful night, Dracula suddenly felt a searing pain in his chest. Looking down he saw that he had been impaled by a large stick with pineapple chunks and cheese cubes on it. As he lay dying, Dracula saw a young woman standing in front of him.

“Who are you? He gasped.

“I’m Buffet the Vampire Slayer,” came back the reply.

– A schizophrenic went to see a psychiatrist. He was kept waiting for over an hour. He was beside himself.

– Did you hear about the German vampire who became a poet. He went from Bat to Verse.
