Snafu is now used to indicate any foul up.
The Christmas Gift
A young man wished to purchase a present for his girlfriend and, after careful consideration he decided on a pair of gloves. Accompanied by his sweetheart's sister, he went to a department store and bought a pair of white gloves. The sister purchased a pair of panties for herself. As the store clerk wrapped the items they got mixed up. The sister got the gloves and the panties went into the package meant for the girlfriend. Without checking the contents, the young man sealed the package and sent it to his sweetheart with this note:
All my love,
P.S. Just think of how many times I will kiss them during the coming year. Also, the latest style is to wear them folded down with the fur showing.
Christmas Eve At The Pearly Gates
One Christmas Eve, three young men die and approach the Pearly Gates. St. Peter meets them and tells them that since it's Christmas Eve he is too busy to process them in the regular way but that he will let them through the Gates if each can come up with something related to Christmas. The first guy takes out his car keys and shakes them, making a jingling sound. St. Peter asks what that has to do with Christmas. The guy says that it represents the Bells of Christmas. St. Peter lets him in. The second man takes out a little pocket flashlight on a chain, and turns it on. St. Peter asks what that has to do with Christmas and the man says that it represents the Star of Bethlehem. St. Peter smiles and lets him in. The third young man is kind of nervous because he has no keys or flashlight. He reaches into his pocket and pulls out what he finds, a pair of women's panties. St Peter asks him what he thinks those could possibly have to do with Christmas. "Well," the young man says: "They're Carol's".
