Tannyw,, the usual response when you ask someone the question "What is the difference between an elephants arse and a post box" is "I don't know!" or "Go on, what is the difference" then you respond by informing them that you wouldn't trust them to post your letter!!!

Bill and LF, thanks for the translation.

I'm not really surprised to find it's actual jargon (as opposed to jibberish, which Mad was wont to generate at times).   Shows to go ya that when you don't understand the language it all sounds like nonsense (which Mad did/does like to use as well).

I also realized that the answer I posted to the "mouse" question earlier was wrong. (Senior moment.)

Q: Why is a mouse?
A: Because the faster it runs, the much.

"It's crackers to slip a rozzer the dropsy in snide."

Genie...I also remembered that from Mad, but I did a search on it a few years ago and found that it makes sense in certain areas of Britain...to those of a certain age. Loosely it means something like 'it's ok to fool or trick a constable/policeman in certain situations' (I forget the exact formulation.)

The late Sixties. I'm at this party when a conversation on Zen-flavored Buddhism breaks out. Someone comes up with the old question, "What's the difference between a duck?" Most of us just chuckled and were prepared to move on when one of the guys there looked very serious and slowly intoned, "Man! That's really deep!"

I think that kept him occupied for the next couple of hours. Or days. Weeks, perhaps?

Oddly enough, beyond a few cigarette smokers, nobody there was smoking anything.
