News from Rio De Janeiro: Brazil’s health minister, Jose Temporao, has an excellent remedy for the nation’s high-blood- pressure problem: More sex.
The minister says adults should be exercising more to help keep their blood pressure down — and he says a good cardiovascular workout includes sex, “always with protection, obviously.”
Temporao also recommends dancing, a healthy diet and regular blood-pressure checks. He made his comments on Monday while launching a national campaign against high blood pressure in Brasilia, the Brazilian capital.
The Health Ministry says that 21.5 percent of Brazilians had high blood pressure in 2006. That jumped to 24.4 percent in 2009.
Three Aussies were working on a high-rise building project – Steve, Bruce and Bluey. Steve falls off and is killed instantly.
As the ambulance takes the body away, Bruce says, “Someone should go and tell his wife.”
Bluey says, “‘OK, I’m pretty good at that sensitive stuff, I’ll do it.”
Two hours later, he comes back carrying a case of Fosters.
Bruce says, “Where did you get that, Bluey?”
“Steve’s wife gave it to me,” Bluey replies.
“That’s unbelievable, you told the lady her husband was dead and she gave you the beer?”
“Well not exactly,” Bluey says. “When she answered the door, I said to her,’You must be Steve’s widow’.
She said, “No, I’m not a widow.”
And I said, “I’ll bet you a case of Fosters you are’.”
