To tourists at ropeway station

„Heute schluss, du musst zu fuss, tschus.”


A panda walks into a bar, sits down and orders a sandwich. He eats, pulls out a gun and shoots the waiter dead. As the panda stands up to go, the bartender shouts, „Hey! Where are you going? You just shot my waiter and you didn't pay for the food.”
The panda yells back, „Hey, man, I'm a panda. Look it up!”
The bartender opens his dictionary to panda: „A tree-climbing mammal of Asian origin, characterized by distinct black and white coloring. Eats shoots and leaves.”

Who is the winner?

A priest and an Australian shepherd met each other in the final of a quiz show. After answering all the normal questions, they were neck-and-neck with the same number of points and the quizmaster had to set a deciding question. The question was to compose a rhyme in 5 minutes including the word „Timbukutu”.

After 5 minutes, the priest presented his poem:
I was a father all my life,
I had no children, had no wife,
I read the Bible through and through
on my way to Timbuktu …

The audience was thrilled and celebrated the churchman as the certain winner.

However, the Aussi stepped forward and recited:
When Tim and I to Brisbane went,
we met free ladies cheap to rent.
They were three and we were two
so I booked one and Tim booked two.
