This month’s Jokes

A young couple went on their honeymoon to Las Vegas.
While they were there they went on an escorted visit to a Native American reservation.
There they saw that there was a “Memory Man” who was reputed to remember everything in the known world.
Of course, the man was intrigued by this and bought a ticket.
When inside he was invited to ask a historical question, so the young man asked, “Who won the English FA cup in 1912. With only a short pause the Chief replied, “Barnsley beat West Bromwich Albion”.
Of course, the young man was astounded and could think of nothing else to say.
25 years later the couple thought that they would return to Las Vegas to celebrate their silver wedding anniversary.
When there, they were surprised to see that they could book a visit to the same reservation.
During the visit the man noticed that the memory man was still there, so he bought a ticket.
On entering the Tepee, the man thought he would blend in, raised his right hand and said “How”.
With no hesitation, the Chief said “Harry Tuffnell scored the only goal in extra time in a replay of the final.”


Moses was the first person recorded using a Tablet. He was also the first person recorded to load data from the Cloud.
