Monday Humour

You are a train driver and your train is travelling 120 kph downhill, and there infront, sitting on the track .......... What would you do?

You are a cobbler. This customer wants her shoes to be polished. Will you still be polishing the shoes or losing your concentration ...... Crap!!!
