There was a brown, barren patch of land behind my home.

 “It looks like the Sahara Desert!” I used to say as nothing grew there, and then overnight it’s become green. A few drops of rain, a few peals of thunder and the brown earth has yielded to roots that had been waiting to spring out and up with shouts of joy!

A butcher watching over his shop is really surprised when he sees a dog coming inside the shop. He shoos him away. But later, the dog is back again. So he goes over to the dog and notices it has a note in its mouth. He takes the note and it reads "Can I have 12 sausages and a leg of lamb, please. The dog has money in its mouth, as well." The butcher looks inside and, lo and behold, there is a ten dollar note there. So he takes the money and puts the sausages and lamb in a bag, placing it in the dog's mouth.

On November 25, 2011, American Clothing Brand Patagonia ran a full-page advertisement on the New York Times titled ‘Don’t Buy This Jacket’, which featured the image of the brand’s own R2 jacket – an outfit it previously used to promote as the ultimate armor for cold conditions.

It was a startled editor, who looked up from his laptop and saw the angel standing in front of him, complete with wings and halo. “You are the editor!” said the angel.

 “What have you come to see me about?” asked the editor fearfully.

  “Aren’t you hungry?” is the question most wives ask, when they are about to serve dinner or lunch, and “What’s for dinner?” is the reply given by most husbands.

  ‘What’s for dinner,’ means that if the food is interesting enough then I am hungry enough to eat, and ‘are you hungry’ implies that if your hunger pangs have started then you will eat whatever is on the table.
