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.
