LONG:
Three McDonald's executives were captured by natives in an Amazon rainforest and taken to their chief.
"You very bad men!" said the chief, "destroy our forests. You will be punished."
The men looked at each other nervously.
"You!" said the chief, pointing at the first man. "I let you choose. Death... or bum-bum!"
"I don't wanna die!" whined the quaking man. "I don't know what bum-bum is, but I'll have it!"
With that, ten of the largest, most strapping warriors seized the man, threw him over a log and rogered him relentlessly for half-an-hour until he was just a bloodied wreck, then dragged him away.
The chief looked at the second man and announced: 'I give same choices. Death or bum-bum!"
"What you did to Trent Wiggs was just horrifying," gasped the distressed man, "but... I don't wanna die. I'll take bum-bum."
Twenty eager warriors grabbed the man, threw him over the log, and rogered him in the same appalling manner for over an hour, leaving him in an even worse state than his colleague.
The chief turned to the last CEO, who was the most senior of the three, and before he could speak, the man yelled defiantly, "I will not suffer the same outrages as those two. Death before dishonour! I choose death!"
At that, a great cheer went up from the tribe as they all roared: "Hooray! Death by bum-bum!"
=
A man, a pig and a dog were the sole survivors of a bad shipwreck.
They found themselves marooned on a desert island where they soon developed a routine of sitting on the beach each night to watch the sunset.
On one balmy evening, the sky was red, with fine, wispy clouds and a warm breeze - the perfect night for romance. As they sat there, the pig began to look more and more desirable to the man.
After a time, he leaned over and put his arm around the animal. The dog immediately became jealous and growled menacingly, so the man removed his arm. After that, the chummy trio continued to watch their sunset but with no more cuddling.
Three months later, there was a further shipwreck in the area. The only survivor was a beautiful young woman. She was in quite a bad state when washed ashore, but he'd tenderly nursed her back to health until she was able to join the mixed trio of buddies on the beach for their sunset ritual.
It was a beautiful night - the red sky, high, wispy clouds, balmy breeze; a night made for romance.
After a bit, the man felt his ardour begin to stir. He tried so hard to fight it but he could contain himself no longer. So he moved over to the beautiful young woman and whispered timidly in her ear...
"Would you mind taking the dog for a walk?"
