The Newfie Fisherman...

It was raining hard and a big puddle had formed in front of Toronto pub. An old man stood beside the puddle holding a stick with a string on the end and jiggled it up and down in the water. A curious gentleman asked what he was doing. 'Fishing, ' replied the old man. 'Poor old fool' thought the gentleman, so he invited the old man to have a drink in the pub. Feeling he should start some conversation while they were sipping their whisky, the gentleman asked, "And how many have you caught?''You're the eighth'.

"I told my wife I had a living will: I do not wish to be fed liquids from a bottle and hooked to a machine. So she turned off the TV and threw away my beer.

The Plot Against People".

Inanimate objects can be classified scientifically into three major categories: those that don't work, those that break down[, ] and those that get lost. The goal of all inanimate objects is to resist man and ultimately to defeat him, and the three major classifications are based on the method each object uses to achieve its purpose...

As a general rule, any object capable of breaking down at the moment when it is most needed will do so.
