Blogging: Help Firda’s Mother

July 31st, 2003

Firda from Wannabe GirlFirda from Wannabe girl was one of the blogs that inspired me to start my own – but now she needs YOUR support!

In the middle of the Blogathon (she was the only person I sponsored as well), her mother was taken ill and is currently in the Intensive Care Unit in their local hospital. However, due to Indonesia (where Firda lives) not having a national health service (like the UK’s own NHS: poor though it is), she has to find all the hospital bills herself – and at $300 a day (that’s £186) it’s quite expensive.

So, go and donate some money to her (via her friend’s PayPal account) – I’m sure it’ll be appreciated. I’ve done my little bit (practically clearing out all the contents of my PayPal account to her) – so why don’t you give a few dollars?

Joke: There’s a song that I recall…

Old Person - who isn't a flibblepenguinBefore the joke (and it’s been a few months since the last joke), a quick explanation of the title of the post – it’s taken from a Goons song that starts:

There’s a song that I recall,
My Mother sang to me,
She sang it when she tucked me in,
When I was 93….
Ying tong ying tong Ying tong ying tong Ying tong iddle I po

I’ll include the full lyrics in the extended/full post (along with the joke’s punch line), so now after the set-up, here’s the joke:

A 100 year old man was having a big birthday party at his nursing home. A TV crew was there to interview the man on this special day.

“Please tell our audience how you managed to live so long,” as the reporter.

“Well, I don’t ever drink and I’ve never smoked,” replied the old man. “And, I make it a point to stay away from wild women.”

Just then, there was a loud shriek in the hall. The crew turned to see a nurse run by, followed by an agile looking, older man. The older man carried a foul smelling cigar in one hand and a glass of whiskey in the other. As he ran by, he paused for a moment, looked at the crowd and let out a hardy, “He, he, he!” and then continued his pursuit.

“What was that all about?” asked the astonished reporter.
