Raise A Toast

A dimwitted priest goes to New York for attending religious delegations & seminars. Along the way he also gets himself invited to many political & diplomatic functions & dinners. A few days before he leaves back to his hometown, he is invited to attend the retirement party of a highly prominent US Senator.

At the party there are many toasts in the name of the Senators. However, the best is said by the Senator himself – as he raises his glass of wine, he toasts “To the best moments of my life, spent in the arms of another man’s wife……..my mother”! with a smile. The priest doesn’t understand the roars of laughter at the Senator’s wit, until a sympathetic soul explains it to him.

Within a week of the priest returns back home, he is invited to attend a fund raiser where he begs to give a toast. After many turns, finally the host gives him the mic, whereupon the priest, with a smug smile on his face, begins : “To the best moments of my life, spent in the arms of another man’s wife!”

At this there are gasps and groans and people whispering all around the hall. Finally the host pulls the priest close and says “You have better explain yourself, padre”. The poor priest says “You’ll have to forgive me. I forgot the name of the bloody woman!”

Darvaz : The Door To Hell

This big hole is called by the locals as the ‘Door to hell’. It is situated near the small town of Darvaz, Uzbekistan. The story of this place lasts already for 35 years. Once the geologists were drilling for gas. Then suddenly during the drilling they have found an underground cavern, it was so big that all the drilling site with all the equipment and camps got deep deep under the ground.

None dared to go down there because the cavern was filled with gas. So they ignited it so that no poisonous gas could come out of the hole, and since then, it’s burning, already for 35 years without any pause. Nobody knows how many tons of excellent gas has been burned for all those years but it just seems to be infinite there.
