Fruit Store Joke
Smile for the day!

An older man comes into a small fruit store and sees a new delivery of fresh fruit.

“Give me two pounds of kiwis and wrap every kiwi up in a separate piece of paper, please,” he says to the saleswoman. She does.

“And three pounds of potatoes, please, and wrap up every one in a separate piece of paper, too.” She does it again. “And what is that there,” he asks pointing out a basket in the corner.

“Cherry tomatoes,” says the saleswoman, “but they are not for sale!”

Trump tries to explain remark about Sweden amid confusion

Donald Trump.
INTERNATIONAL NEWS - US President Donald Trump has sought to explain why he referred to a security incident in Sweden on Friday which did not actually happen.

Addressing a rally on Saturday, he had said, "look at what's happening last night in Sweden", as he listed parts of Europe hit by terrorist attacks.

With no such incident reported in Sweden on Friday, the country asked the US administration for an explanation.
Mr Trump tweeted on Sunday that he had been referring to a TV report.

He said it had been broadcast on Fox News but did not say when. He may have been referring to a Fox News programme on Friday night, which looked at refugees and crime in Sweden.

Despite his words "happening last night in Sweden", White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said separately that Mr Trump had been talking about rising crime and recent incidents in general, not referring to a specific issue.

Valentine’s day was preceded by two world-class performers at the theatre. Arno Carstens and Pieter-Dirk Uys came to the theatre.
