Tee-hee Tuesday! (17 April 2012)

My brother and his family (five of them in all) stayed with us at the weekend and - as always happens - we ended up sitting around the table having an epic joke telling session.  Someone comes out with a joke and, before you know it, everyone is chipping in with their latest offering...

The jokes your Dad has been telling the last thirty years [groan...].  The dumb-blonde jokes [titter].  The 'this-embarrasing-thing-actually-happened-to-my-friend' [snigger].  The 'this-embarrasing-thing-actually-happened-to-me' [gasp!].  The knock-knock jokes [tee hee].  The absolutely-not-politically-correct jokes [tut tut!].  And - best of all - those ones where you can't get the punchline out, because you're in fits of laughter yourself, knowing what's coming next...

Well, I tell you, it was balm for the soul.  (And I didn't have to wash off my eyemake-up before I went to bed, because it had already dissolved!  Ha!)

Here's the (old) one that got the ball rolling for us.  As told by DD10.

A lady got on the number 185 bus with her baby and asked for a ticket to Nørreport (centre of Copenhagen).

"Certainly", said the busdriver. "But, my word, that's the ugliest baby I've ever seen!"

The lady was shocked and didn't know what to reply, so headed straight for the back of the bus and sat down next to a kindly-looking old man.

"Well, I've never been so insulted in all my life!", she said. "That bus driver should be sacked!"

"That's terrible!", the old man replied. "I tell you what, why don't you go and give him a piece of your mind while I hold your monkey?"

Boom boom! ;D

 
 
Hope you have a terrific Tuesday! :)
