JOKES & Humor # 5

Once upon a time, there lived a beautiful young fairy princess who dreamed of being a ballet dancer. Then one day, she read an ad in her email that an- nounced the Royal Ballet’s next auditions in a nearby town. So on the right day, the fairy princess geared up one hundred white pigeons to her chariot, and off they fl ew to the theater. After witnessing her outrageous entrance, the director immedi- ately told her to go back home. “But why?” wept the broken- hearted shell of the would-be- ballerina.

“Because,” came the heartless reply, “I’ve got enough pigeon- towed dancers in the company already.”
