Newsletter and jokes 20 September 2019

Hi all 
Apparently there is some rugby going on somewhere.... 
School is out and the kids need something to watch, and we've got it right 
here ... with a little something for everyone. 
First up for the little ones is the sequel to the popular videogame-to 
movie franchise The Angry Birds, with their creatively-titled The Angry  
Birds Movie 2, in both 2D and 3D. 
Moving both up-market and up-age, the beloved TV series Downton Abbey gets 
a chance on the big screen as a last hurrah, showing on the art circuit 
and related venues. 
The main adult release this week sees Brad Pitt heading off into outer  
space, in the well-rated sci-fi thriller Ad Astra. This would best be  
viewed on the bigger IMAX and 4DX screens. 
Then we have three 18+ movies, kicking off with what is probably Rambo's 
swansong, in Rambo: Last Blood. That's joined by two local films, the  
first is the gritty boxing-cum-crime drama Knuckly City, which is South  
Africa's official entry for the next Oscars, and retro gay army drama  
Moffie. Both of these are showing at one venue only. 
From the Indian subcontinent, we have a sporty rom-com called The Zoya 
Factor, and the Tamil action thriller Kaappaan. 
On the previews side, there are previews on Tuesday for the upcoming 
bio-doccie about opera singer Pavarotti. See the previews page and  
remember to book. 
Ejoy the braai on Tuesday... :)

My sister was busy getting ready to host our entire family for Easter.  
On her to-do list was a hair appointment for her daughter.  
“So, Katie,” said the stylist as the little girl got up in the chair,  
“who’s coming to your house this weekend with big ears and floppy feet?” 
Katie replied, “I think it’s my uncle Brian.” 
He was doomed to fail, but last Easter, my husband tried unsuccessfully to  
get our young sons to have some lunch after they’d already stuffed  
themselves with a ton of chocolate eggs. 
“They’re not going to eat,” my mother-in-law told him.  
“It’s Easter Sunday. What do you expect, a miracle?” 
At an Easter-week meeting of Weight Watchers, a woman said proudly this was 
the first year her children realized that chocolate Easter bunnies came  
with ears. 
Last Easter, my youngest daughter’s daycare teacher gave each of her pupils 
a little basket of chocolates carefully wrapped in cellophane.  
Before we were even out of the daycare center, I saw Jade, who was four at  
the time, trying to open the much-desired package. 
“Didn’t Chantal tell you not to eat them until you got home?” 
“Yes, she did,” said Jade, “but I didn’t hear her.” 
I must admit, I looked forward to our upcoming church service with greater  
anticipation than usual after reading in our bulletin,  
“This being Easter Sunday, we will ask Mrs. Brown to come forward and lay  
an egg on the altar.” 
If a man who cannot count finds a four-leaf clover, is he lucky? 
During Thanksgiving dinner last year, my eight-year-old son watched  
intently as my husband carved the turkey.  
“Man,” he said in awe. “They must have fed bread to that turkey for months  
to get all that stuffing.” 
Before Thanksgiving a Minnesota first-grade teacher asked her pupils to  
tell her what they had to be thankful for.  
“I am thankful,” said one small boy, “that I am not a turkey.” 
“If you wish to make an apple pie truly from scratch you must first invent  
the universe.”
