Non-PC Humor - forgive my warped humor

It has been announced that the police are going to be allowed to use water cannons on rioters.



They are putting some Tide washing powder in to stop the coloreds from running.

------------------------------ ------------------------------ -------------

2 Muslims have crashed a speedboat into the Thames barrier in London . Police think it might be the start of Ram-a-dam.


------------------------------ ------------------------------ -------------

Riots in Birmingham last month caused over 1 million worth of improvements

------------------------------ ------------------------------ -------------

Muslims have gone on the rampage in Manchester, killing anyone who's English.

Police fear the death toll could be as high as 8 or 9.

------------------------------ ------------------------------ -------

Years ago it was suggested that, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away."



But, since all the doctors are now Muslim, I've found that a bacon sandwich works great!

------------------------------ ------------------------------ -------

Police in London have found a bomb outside a mosque...They've told the public not to panic as they've managed to push it inside.

==============================

During last night's high winds an African family were killed by a falling tree.



A spokesman for the Birmingham City council said "We didn't even know they were living up there".

==============================

Jamaican minorities in the UK have complained that there are not enough television shows with minorities in mind, so Crime Watch is being shown 5 times a week now.

==============================

I was reading in the paper today about this dwarf that got pick pocketed.

How could anyone stoop so low.



==============================

I was walking down the road when I saw an Afghan bloke standing on a fifth floor balcony, shaking a carpet.



I shouted up to him, "What's up Abdul, won't it start?"



==============================

An Emergency Call Center worker has been fired in Toronto much to the dismay of her colleagues, who were unhappy with her dismissal.

It seems that a caller dialed 911 from a cell phone stating,

"I am depressed and lying on a railway line so that when the train comes I can finally meet Allah."

To which the call center employee replied, "Remain calm and stay on the line."

Check your security settings first.
AD blocker also might be effecting it, but security setting almost always the issue.
Some phones block pictures to save something, kb/mb's use too.

I do hope that the conduct of senators and attorneys involved are investigated thoroughly until all details come out in the wash. No hand slapping here. Prison for the perjurers and censure for senatorial misconduct. Needs to be done with vigor to deter anymore such behavior in the future.

Fake news unfortunately. Her old man is on the UC Board Of Regents. Palo Alto is a private brainwashing institution not affiliated with the state run education camps.

Thanks, Okie.

I looked at WIKI but decided not to use it as a reference because in this climate and the public editing capabilities of that reference site are always suspect.

I just want to be right/accurate concerning the Meme and also correct the person who provided it to me if it is actually false.

Right now it looks to be false.

Best!
