Joke of the day

How many members of the Lords Day Observance Society does it take to change a lightbulb?

Change!?!

Without the turbines there will be no electricity, so no reason for lightbulbs.

turbines on here will not light any lights on here - so move on

Here's another of the same-
How many Lewismen does it take to change a lightbulb?
Two, one to change the bulb, another to write a song about how good the old one was.

These are not good times for the Islands, and the delay in making any progress on RET, (now apparently postponed until the end of the year) is further proof that the promised bright new dawn of last May is turning into a cruel mirage.

If the use of the expression Eastern European is construde as racist then you must be careful Angus not to be challenged as being offensive to those how follow, albit a primative, branch of the Christian Faith.

Unless of course you live in the Kindom of Salmond where all things vote winning happen overnight.

It was not the use of the term Eastern European that was racist, it was the context in which the term was used that turned the statement into a racist statement.

Plus I'm sure some folk will find the joke offensive, satire mormally is offensive to it's targets, that's kind of the point.

Personally, I'm a Christian and I thought it was well funny.

Surely this is a bigger joke - or is this what we are expected to do on the "special place" now we cant have turbines?

The lights are still on. Gazette this morning carries 9 jobs, and 11 last week.Surely not bad for a place this size?

so much for a depressed economy.

For those who dont like it a fine advert for emigrating too, but I siuspect most wouldnt make the grade on that anyhow.........

an ideal scenario
the gov says yes to the windfarm
the objector emigrate and
they sell their houses to people who appreciate the beauty of green energy

hello green party welcome to lewis!
why do you guys always moan about extra roads instead of campaigning for new types of greener engine such as hydrogen? new roads don't cause the problem its the vehicles on 'em that do that!

This comment page has been hijacked! Never mind the turbines, today, Sunday,I passed a minister in uniform driving his car!AND he was speeding! IMAGINE! Forty years ago the elders would have had him excommunicated then exiled to the colonies for even daring to drive a car, never mind break the law on the Saaaabath.
My point- in a few years these sad people will all be on the ferry/ planes pretending that there never really was a fuss made about Sunday travel.

Anon 5.01pm-
These sad people are already using the planes, just a few short years after their demos, doom and gloom, and daft predictions of the end of civilisation as we know it.
I am reliably told that in the last few years, even some of our elected representatives who vote consistently against Sunday travel, travelled on Council business on the Sabbath, including the quasi-autonomous Pendleton beano. F0I request to the Council any one? Our MSP is already on record as a non-user of Sunday Ferries, try a "google" search on Sunday ferries from Selkirkand you will find out why!

I think you will find that this is the reason that the sanctimonious Councillor left Back Free Church - just before they threw him out - and moved to Stornoway Free Church.

It hasn't stopped his Sunday travels though.

Is it true that he used to claim lunch and dinner expenses every day in the Council, desite living 1mile from the building? He must have got thousands!

Perhaps, but Calmac have made a big mistake in allowing the ferry across the Sound of Harris on a Sunday. Look who they've upset - bad move...

man of many mansions:

I'm intrigued as to how someone can actually leave a church and then get 'thrown out' afterwards?? Did you just add that for effect?

Anonymous said...

eyoop- pay attention, man of many mansions said 'just before they threw him out'.
Maybe we could have another branch of the frees, one that does not believe in prof macleods, but does admit to the existance of ferries on a Sunday?
