Oh boy, what did the girl say?

Osho Rajneesh mixed philosophy with humour. I was reading about him and picked these two jokes from his speech to share with you.
A man loved two beautiful women and was always in trouble. (Even one beautiful woman is trouble enough..Hehe). Both the women wanted to know whom he loved most. They took him on a motorboat to a lake. Once in the middle of the lake, which was deep, they stopped the boat and told him, “We cannot take it anymore. Tell us whom you love most.” The man understood his predicament. He thought deeply and replied: “I love each of you more than the other.”
A boy was brought to court for stealing a girl’s bicycle. “I did not steal. She gave it,” he argued. “She was riding me home on the handlebars and stopped in the woods; took off her coat and jeans and said I can have anything. I preferred the bicycle.”
The philosopher’s advice: “Just be intelligent. Don’t take the bicycle,”

  8. its nice..
    one another:

    The nagging old lady in bed for a week on doctor's advice. Nothing suits her. She complaints about the weather, the medicine and especially her husband's cooking.

    One day after taking in her breakfast tray and cleaning up the kitchen, the old man sits down in his den. She hears the scratching of his pen.

    “What are you doing now?” she calls.
    “Writng a letter.”
    “Who are you writing to?”
    “Cousing Ann.”
    “What are you writing to her about?”
    “I am telling her your are sick, but the doctors say you will be okay soon, and there is no danger.”

    And then he asks, after a small pause,
    “How do you spell cemetery? With a ‘c’ or with a ‘s’?

  16. heh he he he.... had read these stories, but didn't know were said by Osho.
    However I think, we can say in a objective world, the boy did chose correctly cos he needed cycle more than the girl.

    There will be kids who will make a joke where he choses the girl over the cycle. Its all about perspective.

    Cheers,

  20. I was reading the book " Ignorance is Bliss" by Osho. He always made his discourses interesting with stories like this.Often, choices are difficult to make.
