Maths, and bad jokes

First of all, last week's solution to us crossing the bridge.

Scary and Dawn cross. Total is 2 minutes.
Dawn returns with the torch. Total is 4 minutes
Aled and Rik cross. Total is 14 minutes
Scary returns with the torch. Total is 15 minutes
Scary and Dawn again cross. Total is 17 minutes.

See? No tricks. And no one got it right. As for floating me across, thanks.

How about this then?

Tomatoes £1.50 per kilo (bloody Brussels...)
Green Peppers 40p each
Cucumbers 30p each

Debster and Bryn got 20p change from their £5 note when they bought some fresh tomatoes, green peppers, and cucumbers at a farm stand.

* They bought 4 tomatoes, which weighed 2 kilos altogether.
* They bought 1 more tomato than green peppers.

How many cucumbers did they buy?

And finally...
Courtesy of my mate Dai, so blame him.
A successful rancher died and left everything to his devoted wife. She was a very good-looking woman and determined to keep the ranch, but knew very little about ranching, so she decided to place an ad in the Newspaper for a ranch hand.

Two cowboys applied for the job. One was gay and the other a drunk. She thought long and hard about it, and when no one else applied she decided to hire the gay guy, figuring it would be safer to have him around the house than the drunk. He proved to be a hard worker who put in long hours every day and knew a lot about ranching.

For weeks, the two of them worked, and the ranch was doing very well. Then one day, the rancher's widow said to the hired hand, "You have done a really good job, and the ranch looks great. You should go into town and kick up your heels."

The hired hand readily agreed and went into town one Saturday night. One o'clock came, however, and he didn't return. Two o'clock and no hired hand. Finally he returned around two-thirty, and upon entering the room, he found the rancher's widow sitting by the fireplace with a glass of wine, waiting for him.

She quietly called him over to her. "Unbutton my blouse and take it off," she said.

Trembling, he did as she directed. "Now take off my boots." He did as she asked, ever so slowly.

"Now take off my socks." He removed each gently and placed them neatly by her boots.

"Now take off my skirt." He slowly unbuttoned it, constantly watching her eyes in the fire light.

"Now take off my bra..." Again, with trembling hands, he did as he was
told and dropped it to the floor.

Then she looked him straight in the eye, and said, "If you ever wear my clothes into town again, you're fired."
