What are some good short stories?

 I have collected a variety of short stories from different websites. So I am posting a few of them

Story 1:

Baby mosquito came back after its first flying. His Dad asked him, "How did U feel?" He replied, "It was wonderful Daddy ... All humans clapped hands for me!"

Story 2:

On the first day God created the cow. God said, "You must go to the field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves, and give milk to support the farmer I will give you a life span of sixty years."

The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life ... you want me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty years and I'll give back the other forty." And God agreed.

On the second day, God created the dog. God said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. I will give you a life span of twenty years."

The dog said, "That's too long to be barking. Give me ten years and I'll give back the other ten." So God agreed (sigh).

On the third day God created the monkey. God said, "Entertain people, do monkey tricks, make them laugh. I'll give you a twenty year life span."

Monkey said, "How boring, monkey tricks for twenty years? I don't think so. Dog gave you back ten, so that's what I'll do too, okay?" And God agreed again.

On the fourth day God created man. God said, "Eat, sleep, play, have sex, enjoy. Do nothing, just enjoy, enjoy. I'll give you twenty years."

Man said, "What? Only twenty years? No way man. Tell you what, I'll take my twenty, and the forty cow gave back, the ten dog gave back, and the ten monkey gave back. That makes eighty, okay. ? "

"Okay," said God. "You've got a deal."

So, that is why for the first twenty years we eat, sleep, play, have sex, enjoy, and do nothing. For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family; for the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain our grandchildren; and for the last ten years we sit in front of the house and bark at everybody.

Story 4:

This is the transcript of the actual radio conversation between the British and the Irish off the coast of Co.Kerry (Ireland) in Oct. 1998. Radio conversation released by the Chief of Naval Operations (of Ireland I'm assuming)

Irish: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision

British: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees tot he north to avoid a collision

Irish: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees tot he south to avoid a collision

British: This is the captain of a British navy ship, I say again divert YOUR course

Irish: Negative. I say again you will have to divert YOUR course

British: This is the aircraft carrier HMS Britannia! The second largest ship in the British atlantic fleet. We are accompanied by three destroyers, three cruisers and numerous support vessels. I demand you change your course 15 degrees north, I say again, that is 15 degrees north or countermeasures will be taken to ensure the safety of this ship.

Irish: We are a lighthouse. Your call.

Story 3:

A man was purchasing a toy in a shop as a present for his son for Christmas. He was a well-known mathematician, so naturally the shop-keeper brought out a jigsaw puzzle.

The mathematician tried to solve the puzzle ... it was a beautiful puzzle. He tried and tried and tried and started perspiring. It was becoming awkward. The customers and the salesmen and the shop-keeper were all watching, and he was not able to bring the puzzle to a solution.

Finally, he dropped the idea and he shouted at the shop-keeper: “I am a mathematician and if I cannot solve this jigsaw puzzle, how do you think my small boy will be able to?”

The shop-keeper said, “You don’t understand. It is made in such a way that nobody can solve it - mathematician or no mathematician. ”

The mathematician asked, “But why is it made in this way?”

The shop-keeper said, “It is made in this way so that the boy from the very beginning starts learning that life cannot be solved, cannot be understood.”

You can live it, you can rejoice in it, you can become one with the mystery, but the idea of ​​understanding as an observer is not at all possible.

Story 3:

The phone bill was exceptionally high. The man called a family meeting to discuss.

Dad: "This is unacceptable. I don't use the home phone, I use my work phone."

Mum: "Me too. I hardly use the home phone. I use my office phone."

Puzzled, they shifted their gaze to their son.

Son: "Hey, don't look at me, I use my office mobile only."

The three of them now look at the maid who's patiently listening to them.

Maid: “What? So we all use our work phones. What’s the big deal ??
