Norton Commando Transformer by Steve Twist

 A duck was walking along a stream in Australia
 when he happened upon a platypus standing on the bank. 
The platypus was t holding a sign that read:
 "Homeless. Out of work. Please help."

The duck offered to help the platypus
 but not through a simple grant by donation.
 He said he would help the platypus find employment.
 But in the interim he would also loan him the money
 necessary to get on with his life.
They shook hands to seal the deal
 and each went their separate ways.

Speaking in his simple language,
 he told his wife that evening of what he had done.
 "Duck help out platypus today," he said.
 "Duck feel good. 
Economy get better. Everyone happy."

His wife looked at him somewhat askance 
as she continued to prepare food for the evening's meal.

"What's the matter?" The duck asked

She turned to face him.
 "And what do you plan to do when
 the platypus fails to pay you back?"

"It pretty simple," he replied.
 "Duck bill platypus."

A girl and her dog take a look backward at the life 
they’ve shared growing up together.
 You may want to get a hankie before you watch.

Yes, believe it or not, it’s a car ad.
 It should send you right out to buy a car

A teenage boy is getting ready to take his girlfriend to the prom.
 Firtst he goes to rent a tux
, but there's a long tux line at the shop and it takes forever.
 Next he has to get some flowers,
so he heads over to the florist and there's a huge line there.
 He waits forever but eventually gets the flowers
. Then he heads out to rent a limo.
 Unfortunately, there's a large line at the rental office,
 but he's patient and gets the job done.
 Finally, the day of the prom comes.
 There two are dancing happily
 and his girlfriend is having a great time
. When the song is over, she asks him to get her some punch,
 so he heads over to the punch table 
and there's no punchline

Head to Ningaloo and paddle out to the world’s largest fringing coral reef.
