Accident insurance claim forms ask for a brief statement about how the accident happened. The combination of the finger pointing instinct and the small spaces provided on the forms can lead to some curiously phrased explanations. Here are some of my favourite Hilarious ones. Enjoy !
* A pedestrian hit me and went under my car.
* Coming home, I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I don't have
* No one was to blame for the accident, but it never would have happened if the other driver had been alert.

* I had been driving for 40 years when I fell asleep at the wheel and had an accident.
* I was backing my car out of the driveway in the usual manner when it was struck by the other car in the same place where it had been struck several times before.
* The indirect cause of this accident was a little guy in a small car with a big mouth.

* I was sure the old fellow would never make it to the other side of the road when I struck him.
* I was unable to stop in time, and my car crashed into the other vehicle. The driver and passengers then left immediately for a vacation with injuries.

* I collided with a stationary truck coming the other way.
* In my attempt to kill a fly, I drove into a telephone pole.

Some words are bundles of two or more words, like can-did or a-bun-dance, and are called charades. These individual words have a meaning by themselves. Of course, the components usually suggest a definition very different from the whole word’s real meaning, so they are called a bundle word.
So, if abundance is a bread boogie, can you match these bundle words?
|beyond talking | fake diamond| cruel times |
| on auction | go crazy | product jingle |
| saloon alarm | coins without tails | battle cry |
| car romancing | scuba man | the first insect |
| volcanic British politician | face wrinkles |
| lecture that puts you to sleep| dark horse |
| Wall Street refreshment | uniquely smart |
| someone who thinks he’s witty | actors’ strike |
