Another Uneducated Fool – Satya Nadella

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella recently told an audience full of women in technology that they shouldn’t ask for raises. That instead they should rely on “karma” for career advancement.
The CEO knew he had messed up, and almost immediately posted an apology onto Microsoft’s website.  (1)
The thing is: an apology isn’t enough. We need more than words to prove that this was just a slip up, and not a mentality that pervades Microsoft. We need evidence that the company is truly committed to diversity and inclusion.
For Black people, this isn’t just a women’s issue. Black men earn 73 cents for every dollar a white man earns, while Black women earn only 64 cents. (2)
If Black men and women are ever going to have a fair shot at Microsoft, or anywhere in the tech industry, big companies need to make their salary statistics public. We need to know how much Black folks are earning compared to their white counterparts.
We’re going to be waiting a long time for equality if we wait for karma to kick in. For-example, the pay gap has barely budged in a decade, and last year it got even worse for Black women. The pay gap takes $18,650 out of Black women’s pockets every year. (3) And since the recent financial crisis, the racial wealth gap has doubled: white families now have 22 times the household wealth Black families have. (4)
Microsoft is one of the biggest technology companies on the planet and employs 99,000 people – more than Apple or Google. (5) Despite a public commitment to diversifying their workforce over the last twenty years, less than a third of Microsoft employees are women, and only 3.5% are Black folks. That means the company’s workforce has four times fewer Black people than the American population. (6, 7)
With the CEO’s recent “karma” comment, the country is paying attention to what Microsoft does next. By taking action right now we can ensure that Microsoft releases its pay data — a crucial step in ensuring pay equity for Black people.

Made you laugh, lol lol

Some Oldies but a nice way to start the week
A married Irishman went into the confessional and said to his priest, ‘I almost had an affair with another woman.’ 

The priest said, ‘What do you mean, almost?’ 

The Irishman said, ‘Well, we got undressed and rubbed together, but then I stopped.’ 

The priest said, ‘Rubbing together is the same as putting it in. You’re not to see that woman again. For your penance, say five Hail Mary’s and put $50 in the poor box.’ 

The Irishman left the confessional, said his prayers, and then walked over to the poor box. 

He paused for a moment and then started to leave. 

The priest, who was watching, quickly ran over to him saying, ‘I saw that. You didn’t put any money in the poor box!’ 

The Irishman replied, ‘Yeah, but I rubbed the $50 on the box, and according to you, that’s the same as putting it in!’ 

Lemon Squeeze

There once was a religious young woman who went to Confession. 
Upon entering the confessional, she said, ‘Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.’

The priest said, ‘Confess your sins and be forgiven.’ 

The young woman said, ‘Last night my boyfriend made mad passionate love to me seven times.’ 

The priest thought long and hard and then said, ‘Squeeze seven lemons into a glass and then drink the juice.’ 

The young woman asked, ‘Will this cleanse me of my sins?’ 

The priest said, ‘No, but it will wipe that smile off of your face.’ 


Catholic Dog

Muldoon lived alone in the Irish countryside with only a pet dog for company. One day the dog died, and Muldoon went to the parish priest and asked, ‘Father, my dog is dead. Could ya’ be sayin’ a mass for the poor creature?’ 

Father Patrick replied, ‘I’m afraid not. We cannot have services for an animal in the church. But there are some Baptists down the lane, and there’s no tellin’ what they believe. Maybe they’ll do something for the creature.’ 

Muldoon said, ‘I’ll go right away Father. Do ya’ think $5,000 is enough to donate to them for the service?’

Father Patrick exclaimed, ‘Sweet Mary, Mother of Jesus! Why didn’t ya’ tell me the dog was Catholic? 


Father O’Malley answers the phone. ‘Hello, is this Father O’Malley?’ 

‘It is!’ 

‘This is the IRS. Can you help us?’ 

‘I can!’
‘Do you know a Ted Houlihan?’ 

‘I do!’ 

‘Is he a member of your congregation?’ 

‘He is!’ 

‘Did he donate $10,000 to the church?’ 

‘He will.’


An elderly man walks into a confessional. 
The following conversation ensues: 

Man: ‘I am 92 years old, have a wonderful wife of 70 years, many children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Yesterday, I picked up two hitch-hiking college girls. We went to a motel where I had sex with each of them three times.’

Priest: ‘Are you sorry for your sins?’ 

Man: ‘What sins?’ 

Priest: ‘What kind of a Catholic are you?’

Man: ‘I’m Jewish.’ 

Priest: ‘Why are you telling me all this?’ 

Man: ‘I’m 92 years old . . . . I’m telling everybody!’ 

Brothel Trip

An elderly man goes into a brothel and tells the madam he would like a young girl for the night. 
Surprised, she looks at the ancient man and asks how old he is. 

‘I’m 90 years old,’ he says. 

’90?’ replies the woman. ‘Don’t you realise that you’ve had it?’ 

‘Oh, sorry,’ says the old man. ‘How much do I owe you?’ 


An elderly man went to his doctor and said, ‘Doc, I think I’m getting senile. Several times lately, I have forgotten to zip up.’
‘That’s not senility,’ replied the doctor. ‘Senility is when you forget to zip down.’ 

Pest Control

A woman was having a passionate affair with an Irish inspector from a pest-control company. One afternoon they were carrying

on in the bedroom together when her husband arrived home unexpectedly. 

‘Quick,’ said the woman to the lover, ‘into the closet!’ and she pushed him in the closet, stark naked.

The husband, however, became suspicious and after a search of the bedroom discovered the man in the closet. 
‘Who are you?’ he asked him.

‘I’m an inspector from Bugs-B-Gone,’ said the exterminator.

‘What are you doing in there?’ the husband asked.

‘I’m investigating a complaint about an infestation of moths,’ the man replied. 

‘And where are your clothes?’ asked the husband. 

The man looked down at himself and said, ‘Those little bastards! ‘ 

Marriage Humour 

Wife: ‘What are you doing?’ 

Husband: Nothing. 

Wife: ‘Nothing . . . ? You’ve been reading our marriage certificate for an hour.’ 

Husband: ‘I was looking for the expiration date.’ 


Wife: ‘Do you want dinner?’ 

Husband: ‘Sure! What are my choices?’ 

Wife: ‘Yes or no.’ 

Stress Reliever 

Girl: ‘When we get married, I want to share all your worries, troubles and lighten your burden.’ 

Boy: ‘It’s very kind of you, darling, but I don’t have any worries or troubles.’ 

Girl: ‘Well that’s because we aren’t married yet.’ 


Son: ‘Mum, when I was on the bus with Dad this morning, he told me to give up my seat to a lady.’ 

Mum: ‘Well, you have done the right thing.’ 

Son: ‘But mum, I was sitting on daddy’s lap.’ 


A newly married man asked his wife, ‘Would you have married me if my father hadn’t left me a fortune?’ 

‘Honey,’ the woman replied sweetly, ‘I’d have married you, NO MATTER WHO LEFT YOU A FORTUNE!’ 


A wife asked her husband: ‘What do you like most in me, my pretty face or my sexy body?’ 

He looked at her from head to toe and replied: ‘I like your sense of humour!’ 


Husbands are husbands 

A man was sitting reading his papers when his wife hit him round the head with a frying pan.
‘What was that for?’ the man asked.
The wife replied , ‘That was for the piece of paper with the name Jenny on it that I found in your trouser pocket.’
The man then said ‘When I was at the races last week, Jenny was the name of the horse I bet on.
The wife apologized and went on with the housework.
Three days later the man is watching TV when his wife bashes him on the head with an even bigger frying pan, knocking him unconscious.
Upon re-gaining consciousness the man asked why she had hit again.
Wife replied. ‘Your horse phoned’

Let us pray………………….
Give me a sense of humour, Lord,
Give me the grace to see a joke,
To get some humour out of life,
And pass it on to other folk.

Too Much Sex -


I Couldn’t help but over-hear two guys in their mid-twenties while sitting at the bar last night.
One of the guys says to his buddy:  “Man you look  tired.”
His buddy says:  “Dude I’m exhausted. My girlfriend and I have sex all the time. I just don’t know what to do.”
A fellow about my age (75+), sitting a couple of  stools down, also overheard the conversation. He looked over at the two young men and with the wisdom of years says:
“Marry her. That’ll put a stop to that shit.”


True Friendship

This guy brings his best mate home, unannounced, for dinner at 6:30pm, after work.

His wife screams her head off while his friend sits open mouthed and listens to the tirade…
“My bloody hair & makeup are not done, the house is a f****** mess, the dishes aren’t done.
Can’t you see I’m still in my f****** pajamas and I can’t be bothered with cooking tonight!
Why the f*** did you bring him home unannounced you stupid idiot?”
“Because he’s thinking of getting married.”

Who’s been down the Chimney???

A redneck went to the hospital, as his wife was having a baby.

Upon arriving, he sat down as the nurse said to him, “Congratulations,  Your wife has had quints, five big baby boys.”

The redneck said, “I’m not surprised. I have a penis on me like a chimney.”

The nurse replied, “You might want to consider getting it cleaned. They’re all black.”

China Hacked 800,000 U.S. Postal Workers

Chinese government hackers are suspected of breaching the U.S. Postal Service computers, gaining access to the personal information on some 800,000 employees. The hacking was discovered mid-September, and the FBI is investigating the breach. The USPS announced the hacking Monday, the same day that President Obama arrived in Beijing for talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping. Security breaches at the Office of Personnel Management and government contractor USIS earlier this year were linked to China. The country has consistently denied the allegations and says Chinese law forbids cybercrimes.
