Our Mission Statement

   Joke of the Month

 

Have you experienced this?


Mujibar was trying to get into Canada legally through Immigration.

The Immigration Officer said, 'Mujibar, you have passed all the tests, except one.
Unless you pass it you cannot enter Canada.' Mujibar said, 'I am ready.'


The officer said, 'Make a sentence using the words Yellow, Pink and Green.'
Mujibar thought for a few minutes and said, 'Mister Officer, I am ready.'


The Officer said, 'Go ahead.'
Mujibar said, 'The telephone goes, 'green, green, green, green' and I pink it up, and say, 'Yellow, this is Mujibar.''


Mujibar now works for the government, perhaps you have spoken to him???
