Temel's Revenge, if only...

Thanks PM (4/99)...

Temel's wife is cheating on him with the man next door. And Temel is suspicious. One day, he tells his wife that he's going to Istanbul but, instead, he sneaks up to the roof of his house and hides himself. After a short while, the neighbor arrives and he and Temel's wife start making wild whoopee. And when Temel sees the deceivers with his own eyes he vows vengefully, "Ooooo, you...you...If only I wasn't in Istanbul, I'd show you a thing or two!"

An Australian Joke, in Turkish...Ed. 5 rev 5

An American from Texas traveled to Australia. There, during a visit to a farm, he asked the farm owner:
"Say there fella', what is that animal over yonder?"
The Australian (seeing that the American was pointing at some cows) said:
Then the Texan pointed at some sheep grazing a little beyond, and asked:
"OK, and what about those animals?"
"They're sheep," [came the answer from the Australian.]
A pained expression came to the American's face, and he shook his head from side to side, saying:
"My my," he said, "What a pity! Because our Texas cows are at least 3 times bigger than these, and our sheep are 4 times bigger!"
Just then while the Texan was speaking, a kangaroo hopped by a little further on -- and again the Texan asked:
"OK then , m'friend, what's the name of that animal?"
"Oh, that?" replied the Australian, "Why that's a grasshopper..."

A British Joke, in Turkish...

It was during the aerial bombing of Britain during WW II, in the days when the capital city London, especially, was being laid to waste.

In those days, a woman who had to live in London sent a letter to her mother in Scotland that went like this:

"Dear Mummy, German planes continue bombing London nearly every day, and a lot of people are either being killed or wounded during the bombing. Believe me, I'm very worried about my two children...So, I'm [now] sending the children to you until the bombing stops."

Not even a week had passed when the woman received this telegram from her mother in Scotland:

"Send the war planes to us STOP...
I'm sending the children [back] to you STOP!..

An Irish Joke, in Turkish...

An Irish grocer (as he was departing his grocery shop)
emphatically exhorted his young apprentice:
"My son, if my wife shows up, tell her to wait a little...
I'll be back in 5 or 10 minutes.
The apprentice [replied and] asked:
"All right, sir, and if your wife doesn't show up,
what shall I tell her then?

A Turkish celebrity anecdote, in Turkish...

From the long-running comedic short-feature called:
Ünlülerden --
DuyulmamIs Fikrakar
[Previously-unheard anecdotes -- from celebrities]

Today's anecdote is from Sezen Aksu,
Turkeys' most famous pop-music singer-songwriter...

Man asked: God, why did you make women so beautiful?
God replied: So that you might fall in love.
Man asked: OK. But why are they so stupid sometimes?
God replied: So that they might be able to fall in love with you...
