THE WAKKER WEEKLY - Issue #1233 - Posted on: 15-Sep-2014
Bushwakker NewsOur premium wine features for September are Pelee Island Lucky Stones VQA Wines from Ontario. The white is a Sauvignon Blanc/Chardonnay/Scheurebe and the red is a Baco Noir/Cabernet Franc. Both are $7.95 for a glass and $22.95 for a half litre. Our guest import tap now offers Paddock Wood’s Charybdis Hop Burst from Saskatoon. $7.95 for a pint. The producers of Pizza Wars, a County Music Television program, spent some time during the summer catching some program material about our Pulled Pork and Apple Pizza. The fall season for the program begins at 7:30 PM, September 22. We don’t know if or when the Bushwakker segment will air. Work on the washrooms continues. The washrooms in the AZ room will normally be available when either the main men’s or women’s is not available. However, in the event that a function has been booked into the AZ room (It’s hard to predict when both the AZ and the main room washrooms will be unavailable) there is a washroom east of the back entrance to the Bushwakker and another downstairs off the Club Room to the right of the stairs

Time Out; SchoolOn the first day of college, the Dean addressed the students, pointing out some of the rules. "The female dormitory will be out-of-bounds for all male students, and the male dormitory to the female students. Anybody caught breaking this rule will be fined $20 the first time." He continued, "Anybody caught breaking this rule the second time will be fined $60. Being caught a third time will incur a hefty fine of $180. Are there any questions?" At this point, a male student in the crowd inquired: "How much for a season pass?"
Early one morning, a mother went in to wake up her son. "Wake up, son. It's time to go to school!" "But why, Mom? I don't want to go." "Give me two reasons why you don't want to go." "Well, the kids hate me for one, and the teachers hate me also!" "Oh, that's no reason not to go to school. Come on now and get ready." "Give me two reasons why I should go to school." "Well, for one, you're 52 years old. And for another, you're the PRINCIPAL!"
A child in class, when asked to draw a picture of the Holy Family, produced a picture in which Mary and the baby sat on a recognisably donkeyish steed, led by Joseph. on the ground nearby lay a black blob. "What is that?" asked the teacher. "The flea," answered the artist. "What flea, dear?" asked the puzzled teacher. "The one the Angel told Joseph to take." Eventually, puzzled but not liking to challenge an imaginative child, the teacher checked out her Bible. And there it was : Matthew 2:13 "......the angel of the Lord saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt..........."
The day care teacher holds up a picture and asks, "What's this?" "A horsy," one child answers. "And this?" the teacher asks. "A piggy," replies another youngster." And now this one?" asks the teacher, holding up a picture of a male deer with a beautiful rack of antlers. There was no answer, only total silence. "Come now, children," she coaxes, "I'll give you a little hint". What does your Mommy call your Daddy when he hugs and kisses her a lot? "I know! I know!!" exclaims one little girl. "It's a horny bastard!"
"What's the difference between a nail, a screw and a bolt?" the woodwork teacher asked Judi, the only girl in the woodwork class during the first day of school. Judi pondered the question for a moment, then replied, "Well, I can't rightly say as I know, 'cause I ain't never been 'bolted'."
