THE DAILY YOKE

Order yourself a latte, and a pastry (The virtual cinnamon buns are excellent today). And have a nice chat.

In my defence, the joke was told to me by a woman, and I road tested it on three women before posting. All three thought it extremely funny.

I'm clearly on the wrong board.

Come on Gruney :) It’s not the worst joke in the world but I’d have expected it to come from Bernard Manning rather than you ... you’re a nice thoughtful chap ... but then we all see things in different contexts and with different experiences. We can still be friends. :)

I think that this really shows the speed with which changes to attitudes in our society have happened, even if for good reason. Sometimes I just feel old and confused as society moves forward ... hugs Gruney :hug: :wave:

An old man was on his death bed, and wanted to be buried with his money. He called his priest, his doctor and his lawyer to his bedside. "Here's £30,000 cash to be held by each of you. I trust you to put this in my coffin when I die so I can take all my money with me."

At the funeral, each man put an envelope in the coffin. Riding away in a limousine, the priest suddenly broke into tears and confessed, "I only put £20,000 into the envelope because I needed £10,000 to repair the roof of the church."
"Well, since we're confiding in each other," said the doctor, "I only put £10,000 in the envelope because we needed a new X-ray machine for the paediatrics ward at the hospital, which cost £20,000."

The lawyer was aghast. "I'm ashamed of both of you," he exclaimed. "I want it known that when I put my envelope in that coffin, I enclosed a cheque for the full £30,000."
Every day is a good day, it's just that some days are better than others.

It was my wife's birthday.

She told me to book a table for two

I knew it would end in tears



She's rubbish at snooker.

The yoga videos are good but scrolling down the other videos I found some old Pam Ayres clips - so clever, I have just been laughing my socks off. I love comedians who take every day situations and present them in a way which has one howling with laughter. Excellent.

I saw that earlier. It sums it up really. :(

Someone today said that we are descending into the third world and it will soon be time for the military coup. I had thought that myself, but along the Monty Python lines where Graham Chapman stops everything with the words "That's silly"...

This isn't a joke as such - but it made me laugh.

Yesterday morning,my pal from over the way spent ages fitting a new doorbell to his front door. It was technical, and involved swearing. It was "wireless, and he could take the alarm bit into the garden and he would hear if anyone rang.

Later a delivery man arrived - I was watchful, because they are frequently out, and I take stuff for them. The man walked up the drive - and knocked on the door.

There are some foreign comedians making jokes about Brexit - how dare they!! :evil:

A French comedian has one...

"What's black and white and red all over?"

"A steak cooked in England, with ketchup and mayonnaise".
