When you talk "classic" to me that means actually Classic. Not just funny. Gags you may have to wait a lifetime to play. Just can't be done until the circumstances present themselves naturally. You can't set them up. Here's some I certainly didn't invent - just was ready when the time came:

At the Blairgowrie Fest about 1967, I being a bit tipped (as was everyone else) has to find a tie-down for the tent. Searching far & wide I finally found a 6-foot cord. The effort being exhausting, I hadn't the strength left to carry it so I struggled to drag it along the ground. Says Roy Williamson, "Hey, Abby, why are you dragging that string?" I with befitting dignity explained: "Hey, man, you ever try pushing a string?"

Don't look like much typed but it was sure right then. I'm proud that in my time I've also had the opportunity to (appropriately) say "This size, please" and also "Quick, get some water."

My life is thus fulfilled but I have a couple of others in mind just in case the situation arises...

This is a long one but (I think) a good one : (Hope it's allowed here on the Mudcat !)

This man walks trough the dessert with a camel to carry his load of water. After weeks in the dessert the man wants to have sex so bad, but the only living thing near is the camel. So he tries and tries but every time the camel does one step forward. It drives him grazy! After days of walking and trying to get the camel, he hears a womens voice in the distance : "water....water..." Well, he has plenty so he goes to where the voice comes from. And finds this beautiful lady. "Oh please sir, give me water..please, I'll do anything for some water" Anything? the man asks. "Oh yes, anything you want!!" sais the beautiful woman. OK sais the man; Could you hold my camel then for two minutes?

Yo.

I like the "it really happened" type. One year at Newcastleton Festival, many pints ago, we were standing in the hallway of The Grapes catching up on things with friends before the music got serious. My friend Andy had just bought a round of drinks when my father noticed that he was leaning against the bell on the wall. Now where I come from when someone says you're on the bell it's your turn to get a round in. In all innocence father told Andy he was on the bell, Andy protested pointing out that he'd just bought that one. We all saw what my dad saw and caught on, "No Andy you ARE on the bell!" And proceeds to protest massive. The lanlady comes out and says "Excuse me Sir, you're on the bell." We colapse as Andy plaintively pleads "But I've just bought this one, honestly"

"I sure hope there's a Chinese or Japanese girl. I've really got a yen for an Oriental woman."

"It's liable to cost you a bit more than that."

=== Classics ... I think the true classics are the three-parters, such as, "A priest, a rabbi, and a a Baptist preacher were playing golf ..." or when the same person does something three times, and the last time is the punch line. == Johnny

Two privates stationed at Fort Campbell were handed shovels and told to bury a large, dead animal. While digging they got into an argument about what they were burying.

"This here's a big mule!"

"Tain't no mule, this here's a donkey."

"Mule!"

"Donkey!"

Well, this went on for a while until the camp Chaplain came by. "What are you boys doing?" he asked.

"We're diggin' a grave for this mule."

"Donkey, dammit!"

The chaplain cut in, "Boys, this isn't either one, it's an ass."

An hour later, the camp commander came up and said, "What are you men doing, digging a foxhole?"

"No sir. We're diggin' an asshole."

I was at a folk festival and it was the last day so everyone was packing up and getting ready to leave. A couple of friends of mine had travelled down in the same car and I saw one of them who told me that the other one had her car keys and she wanted to load up her stuff but hadn't been able to find her friend for a couple of hours. She was getting fed up by this stage and she was saying to everyone she saw "If you see Kay, tell her I want to see her!"

I asked for a a scart lead in our local electrical goods shop. When the guy behind the counter asked how long would I like it I replied I was thinking of keeping it permanently.... I had waited years for that to happen!

At the Fylde folk festival one year we noticed that the good people of Fleetwood seem to have an idiosincratic (Is that how you spell it?) attitude towards notices. Ie - The pier will be open all year round from 1st November These toilets are fitted with anti-climb and, in the window of what was obviously an office - This is NOT a ladies toilet. The mind boggles. My favourite though was attached to the door of the joke shop. It simply said "Door Sticks". So I went in and asked for a door stick. You would think people who work in joke shops would have a sense of humour wouldn't you?

Isn't it great when you can get your witty response into a situation (if you can remember it at the time that is!!)

My two favourites that I do try to use....much to the annoyance of others are......
In the local DIY store when buying paint and the assistant asks you if you would like it in a bag? You say "no thank you, just leave it in the tin!!"
The second is when you are buying a round of drinks in a bar and are trying to carry several glasses at once, the barman says "would you like a tray?" and you say "don't you think I have enough to carry??"

all the best, Yvonne (Sandy)

I really don't "DO" jokes. I can't remember them half the time. My specialty is more to the sarcastic retort. But I do have trhee favorites that combine elements of the ludicrous and are obviously jokes...but its hard to figure the punchline. Here's one of the the three.

A guy is planning a trip across the desert and he goes to the Hertz Rent-A-Came joint and tells them he wants to rent one. The Hertz guy asks if he wants a 7 day or a 14 day camel. Well, the trip is for 16 days and the fellow can't figure out a way to shorten it. After much cajoling, the Hertz guy says, "I'll see what I can do."

He walks over and selects a large 14 day camel and sticks its head in the water trough. As the camel is drinking, he goes into the Hertz Kiosk and returns with two bricks. The camel is almost full and ready to take its last slurp when the Hertz guy walks behind it. Then, with a powerful swing, he claps the 2 bricks together, smashing the camel's nuts in between. The camel goes 'SSLLLLLUUUOOOORRRRPPPSSSSHHH' and sucks up a ton more water. The Hertz guy walks around to the front and says, "There ya' go pal. That oughta' do it."

The traveller is appalled. "JESUS CHRIST MAN!!!!!! Doesn't that HURT???"...to which the Hertz guy replies,

"Nah........Not if you keep your thumbs out of the way."

This is a true story. I have been going to Newcastleton Festival for quite a while and as happens you make friends with the locals. One of whom was a lovely auld fellow called Jimmy Robson who was known for his poetry. I live twenty miles away and one day in the local paper was a notice in the deaths column......James Robson...Newcastleton. Well I HAD to go. For those of you not fortunate enough to know Copshawholm,there are a lot of people with the same names....father/son/cousin etc. Now how would we know if it was our Jimmy Robson......easy,if it WAS him he wouldn't be there,he be in the box and if it WAS'NT he'd be in the congregation. Perfect logic. Went to the funeral and he wasn't in the congregation...ergo.... Not once did they mention his poetry but they did mention his time on the railway so it must be an over site. Couldn't go the the "do" after but spoke to a few mutual friends,the usual kind of thing, how sad, he was a good age etc So the year rolled round to festival time again. First stop the Liddesdale. Hubby went in before me as I was blethering(chatting) to a mate. He came out that door quicker than a exocet missile,saying "you'll never guess who I've just seen?" Yes you've got it I'd been at the wrong bloody funeral. I never did tell Jimmy,shame because he would have made it into a cracking poem. He died a few years ago and I didn't get to the funeral as I was away.....still I'd been to his first one.

As most of you are aware, the Mormon church requires all of its young men to spend a certain fixed period of time in missionary work, before they marry and settle down. These missions have always required travel, in many cases to the far corners of the earth.

As I understand it, the church has recently created an exception to the requirement of travel in some cases, and permitted some young men to carry out their missionary work over the internet. These individuals do their mission work by staying up late at night and getting on to various chat groups, to attempt to convert the members of those groups.

This is referred to in the church as a nocturnal e-mission.

What do you call a guitar player with half a brain?...

... A bass player!

How can you tell if the stage is level at a gig?...

...The drummer is drooling out of both sides of his mouth!

___________________________________

A drummer goes into a music shop because he wants a change of instrument. (what with all the bad press and everything)

He tells the shop assistant of his desires, and the shop assistant gives him leave to browse to his hearts content.

After half an hour or so, he comes back saying that he'd like an accordion and a saxaphone.

His hopes are dashed however when he is told that, even though he can have the fire extinguisher, the radiator is staying exactly where it is.

An American soldier, serving in World War II, had just returned from several weeks of intense action on the German front lines. He had finally been granted R&R and was on a train bound for London.

The train was very crowded, so the soldier walked the length of the train, looking for an empty seat. The only unoccupied seat was directly adjacent to a well dressed middle aged lady and was being used by her little dog. The war weary soldier asked, "Please, ma'am, may I sit in that seat?" The English woman looked down her nose at the soldier, sniffed and said, "You Americans. You are such a rude class of people. Can't you see my little Fifi is using that seat?"

The soldier walked away, determined to find a place to rest, but after another trip down to the end of the train, found himself again facing the woman with the dog. Again he asked, "Please, lady. May I sit there? I'm very tired." The English woman wrinkled her nose and snorted, "You Americans! Not only are you rude, you are also arrogant. Imagine!"

The soldier didn't say anything else. He leaned over, picked up the little dog, tossed it out the window of the train and sat down in the empty seat. The woman shrieked and demanded that someone defend her and chastise the soldier. An English gentleman sitting across the aisle spoke up, "You know, sir, you Americans do seem to have a penchant for doing the wrong thing. You eat holding the fork in the wrong hand. You drive your autos on the wrong side of the road. And now, sir, you've thrown the wrong bitch out of the window."

Way back in the late Fifties when there was still some red on the atlas. England sent out an expedition to darkest Africa to search for rare plants and animals.

As luck would have it they found this very small animal which no one had seen before. I mean no one had seen anything remotely like it. So they took the poor creature from its natural habitat and brought it back to England.

Well, you can imagine, The London Zoo was delighted. A new creature to put on display. Trouble was no one knew what it was. Eventually they decided that because it was so rare they would call it a Rary (pronounced rare-ee).

It was a great hit and folks came from miles around just to see this poor creature and the Zoo made scads of money.

Well the animal grew and its appetite grew, then it grew some more and they had to move it to a bigger cage. Eventually though the novelty wore off and not many people came to see the animal now that it was no longer cute and fuzzy.

But this didn't stop the animal from eating, it ate and ate and ate and got bigger and bigger and bigger until it was too big for the largest cage in the zoo.

But now there was no money coming in to build a new cage for it so they decide to kill the bloody thing or 'put it to sleep' as they said. So the vet came and gave it an injection but it didn't hurt the beast at all, it just increased its appetite.

So they called in the army to shoot it. But the bullets just bounced off. So they bombed it but the explosion didn't hurt it a bit, if anything it just increased its appetite.

After much hemming and hawing they decided that they would take it up Mount Everest and push it over the side. That should do it. So the called Sir Edmund and organised an expedition and took the animal to the very top of Mount Everest.

WHen they arrived at the top the Rary said to them "What are you going to do to me?" and Sir Edmund replied "We are going to tip you over the side"

The Rary looked down and said..

.Wait for it.

Three Irishmen are being treated by a speech therapist for stuttering.
The therapist is a real looker and very curvy. She is finding it very difficult to make any progress with the three men and so she decides to try a reward system. She tells the three that she will have sex with anyone of them who can tell her where they were born without stuttering.

The first Irishman stands up, says, "B-B-B-B-Belf-f-f-f-ast" and sits down in disappointment. The second Irishman says "D-D-D-Dublin" and also sits down with a sad face.
The third Irishman says "London". In amazement the therapist immediately grabs him, takes into the next room, from where there are sounds of him being rewarded.(!!)
After half an hour they return and the Irishman has a stupid, satisfied grin on his face. Before restarting the session the therapist asks if there's is anything that any of the men would like to say.
The third Irishman raises his hands and continues "d-d-d-d-erry"

WHY DID THE CHICKEN CROSS THE ROAD?.....

JERRY FALWELL: Because the chicken was gay! Isn't it obvious? Can't you people see the plain truth in front of your face? The chicken was going to the "other side." That's what "they" call it the "other side." Yes, my friends, that chicken is gay. And, if you eat that chicken, you will become gay too. I say we boycott all chickens until we sort out this abomination that the liberal media whitewashes with seemingly harmless phrases like "the other side." That chicken should not be free to cross the road. It's as plain and simple as that.

PAT BUCHANAN: To steal a job from a decent, hardworking American.

DR. SEUSS: Did the chicken cross the road? Did he cross it with a toad? Yes! The chicken crossed the road, But why it crossed, I've not been told!

ERNEST HEMINGWAY: To die. In the rain.

MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR.: I envision a world where all chickens will be free to cross roads without having their motives called into question.

GRANDPA: In my day, we didn't ask why the chicken crossed the road. Someone told us that the chicken crossed the road, and that was good enough for us.

ARISTOTLE: It is the nature of chickens to cross the road.

KARL MARX: It was a historical inevitability.

SADDAM HUSSEIN: This was an unprovoked act of rebellion and we were quite justified in dropping 50 tons of nerve gas on it.

RONALD REAGAN: What chicken?

KEN STARR: I intend to prove that the chicken crossed the road at the behest of the president of the United States of America in an effort to distract law enforcement officials and the American public from the criminal wrong doing our highest elected official has been trying to cover up. As a result, the chicken is just another pawn in the president's ongoing and elaborate scheme to obstruct justice and undermine the rule of law. For that reason, my staff intends to offer the chicken unconditional immunity provided he cooperates fully with our investigation. Furthermore, the chicken will not be permitted to reach the other side of the road until our investigation and any Congressional follow-up investigations have been completed. (We also are investigating whether Sid Blumenthal has leaked information to the Rev. Jerry Falwell, alleging the chicken to be homosexual in an effort to discredit any useful testimony the bird may have to offer, or at least to ruffle his feathers.)

CAPTAIN JAMES T. KIRK: To boldly go where no chicken has gone before.

FOX MULDER: You saw it cross the road with your own eyes. How many more chickens have to cross before you believe it?

FREUD: The fact that you are at all concerned that the chicken crossed the road reveals your underlying sexual insecurity.

BILL GATES: I have just released eChicken 98, which will not only cross roads, but will lay eggs, file your important documents, and balance your checkbook and Internet Explorer is an inextricable part of eChicken.

EINSTEIN: Did the chicken really cross the road or did the road move beneath the chicken?

BILL CLINTON: I did not cross the road with THAT chicken. What do you mean by "chicken?" Could you define chicken please?

LOUIS FARRAKHAN: The road, you will see, represents the black man. The chicken crossed the "black man" in order to trample him and keep him down.

THE BIBLE: And God came down from the heavens, and He said unto the chicken, "Thou shalt cross the road." And there was rejoicing.

COLONEL SANDERS: I missed one?

He asks about the deadly King Cobra and is told not to worry about cobras, they'll just pose and hiss but if you back away they'll just slink off into the jungle.
They told him, however, that the Yellow Banded Crate is the snake to watch for. Very deadly and very agressive. and that if he sees one, his only chance is to grab it by the tail and quickly slide his other hand up it's body and grab it behind its head so that it can't bite.

Well he goes off into the jungle and returns a while later, barely able to walk, clothes torn to shreds, blood everywhere.
They give him a large brandy and when he has recovered enough to speak, they ask him "What the hell happened to you".

He says "Well I was walking through the jungle and saw this King Cobra. I remembered what you said so I stepped back and, sure enough, it slid off into the jungle. I walked a little further and then I saw it - The Yellow Banded Crate - I was terrified. But I remembered what you had told me.

THE GREAT DEBATE - _____________________________

Several centuries ago, the Pope decreed that all the Jews had to leave Italy. There was, of course, a huge outcry from the Jewish community, so the Pope offered a deal. He would have a religious debate with a leader of the Jewish community. If the Jewish leader won the debate, the Jews would be permitted to stay in Italy. If the Pope won, the Jews would have to leave.

The Jewish community met and picked an aged Rabbi, Moishe, to represent them in the debate. Rabbi Moishe, however, could not speak Latin and the Pope could not speak Yiddish. So it was decided that this would be a "silent" debate.

On the day of the great debate, the Pope and Rabbi Moishe sat opposite each other for a full minute before the Pope raised his hand and showed three fingers. Rabbi Moishe looked back and raised one finger.

Next, the Pope waved his finger around his head. Rabbi Moishe pointed to the ground where he sat. The Pope then brought out a communion wafer and chalice of wine. Rabbi Moishe pulled out an apple. With that, the Pope stood up and said, "I concede the debate. This man has bested me. The Jews can stay."

Later, the Cardinals gathered around the Pope, asking him what had happened. The Pope said, "First I held up three fingers to represent the Trinity. He responded by holding up one finger to remind me that there was still one God common to both our religions. Then I waved my finger around me to show him that God was all around us. He responded by pointing to the ground to show that God was also right here with us. I pulled out the wine and the wafer to show that God absolves us of our sins. He pulled out an apple to remind me of original sin. He had an answer for everything. What could I do?"

Meanwhile, the Jewish community crowded around Rabbi Moishe, asking what happened. "Well," said Moishe, "first he said to me, 'You Jews have 3 days to clear out of here, and I say not one of us is leaving. Then he tells me the whole city would be cleared of Jews. So I said to him, 'Listen here Mr. Pope, the Jews ... we stay right here!"

"And then?" asked a woman.

"Who knows?" said Rabbi Moishe. "We broke for lunch."

QUASIMODO'S STAND-IN

Quasimodo, the famous Hunchback of Notre Dame, was due for some leave. Unfortunately, he couldn't take time off unless he found a stand-in to do his job whilst he was sunning himself in the South of France.

He put postcards in shop windows asking for volunteers, and eventually he was able to compile a shortlist of would-be campanologists. The shortlist was aptly named – there were only two applicants, twin brothers, and both dwarfs.

He decided to try them out, to see how they fared. He took them up to the bell tower, and began his usual display of swinging from bell to bell, using the bell ropes in a Tarzan-like manner.

Dwarf number one followed him, emulating his performance to the best of his ability. Unfortunately, he misjudged a swing, and his face smacked into the side of a bell, rendering him unconscious. This caused him to lose his grip on the rope, and he fell to his death 100 feet below.

A crowd gathered around the hapless corpse, and a concerned voice piped up: 'Who is he?' Does anyone know him?'

A second voice ventured: 'I don't know… but his face rings a bell!'

Col Sanders went to visit the Vatican. After a personal tour of the city by the Pope himself, he was so impressed that he told the Pope he wanted to donate $10,000,000 to the Pope's cause. Of course, he said there would be one condition. The Pope must agree to change the words from "Give us this day our daily bread." to "Give us this day our daily chicken." The Pope agreed and went off to meet with the Council of Cardinals. When they were gathered, he said, "Boys, I've got good news and bad news." They replied, "Let's have it." The Pope went on to say, "The good news is that Col. Sanders has agreed to give us $10,000,000." The Cardinals were ecstatic. "What is the bad news?" they asked. The Pope responded, "Well, we just lost the Wonder Bread account."

Writing With Emotional Appeal

There was once a young man who, in his youth, professed his desire to become a great writer.
When asked to define "great" he said, "I want to write stuff that the whole world will read,
stuff that people will react to on a truly emotional level,
stuff that will make them scream, cry, howl in pain and anger!"

He now works for Microsoft, writing error messages!

Cut 'n' pasted from today's Independent

How many nationalities can you offend in one joke?

On a beautiful deserted island in the middle of nowhere, the following people are stranded:

2 Italian men and 1 Italian woman 2 French men and 1 French woman 2 German men and 1 German woman 2 Greek men and 1 Greek woman 2 English men and 1 English woman 2 Polish men and 1 Polish woman 2 Japanese men and 1 Japanese woman 2 American men and 1 American woman 2 Australian men and 1 Australian woman 2 New Zealand men and 1 New Zealand woman 2 Irish men and 1 Irish woman

One month later, the following things have occurred:

One Italian man killed the other Italian man for the Italian woman. The two French men and the French woman are living happily together having loads of sex. The two German men have a strict weekly schedule of when they alternate with the German woman. The two Greek men are sleeping with each other and the Greek woman is cleaning and cooking for them. The two English men are waiting for someone to introduce them to the English woman. The Polish men took a long look at the endless ocean and one look at the Polish woman and they started swimming. The two American men are contemplating the virtues of suicide, while the American woman keeps on bitching about her body being her own, the true nature of feminism, how she can do everything that they can do, about the necessity of fulfilment, the equal division of household chores, how her last boyfriend respected her opinion and treated her much nicer and how her relationship with her mother is improving. But at least the taxes here are low and it is not raining. The two Japanese men have faxed Tokyo and are waiting for instructions. The two Australian men beat each other senseless fighting over the Australian woman, who is checking out all the other men, after calling them both 'bloody wankers". Both New Zealand men are searching the island for sheep. The Irish began by dividing the island into North and South and setting up a distillery. They do not remember if sex is in the picture because it gets sort of foggy after the first few litres of coconut whiskey, but they are satisfied in that at least the English aren't getting any

A male friend of mine picked up a female hitch-hiker on a country road out in the middle of nowhere. As these things sometimes happen, they ended up in the back of his van, enjoying each other's company.

Part way through their activities, she reaches out the window, breaks off the radio antenna and starts whacking him across the back with it. He figures, "Ok, so she's a little kinky". He decides not to worry about it and they get on with the fun.

A couple of days later, my friend goes to the doctor's office for a routine examination. The doctor sees the welts on his back, shakes his head sympathetically, and says, "Man, that's the worst case of van-aerial desease I've ever seen".

One day two prawns called Jack & Christian were happily trawling along on the bottom of the ocean when a large shark swam by. Jack turned to Christian and said 'I wish I was one of them'.

Lo and behold the fairy Godcrab turned up and said 'Your wish is granted' and turned Jack into a shark.

Jack was delighted and for a few weeks was happy cruising the ocean eating his friends and enemies alike until he suddenly realised that he was lonely. He had eaten most of his friends and those he hadn't eaten were avoiding him.

He wished as hard as he could to be the way he was before and the Fairy Godcrab heard him and again granted his wish.

As fast as he could Jack hurried to find his friend Christian who was hiding in a large shell. Jack knocked on the shell but his friend shouted 'No! Go away! You'll eat me!'

'No,no I won't' replied Jack, 'It's alright, I'm a prawn again, Christian'.!!!

Remembered this one last night, and I probably really only have to post the punch line, but just in case...

Three women of the village were leaving the dance when they came upon one of the men lying in the ditch with his kilt over his head. The two older women both looked and said "Not my husband". Then the youngest lass comes up to look and says "Why he's not even from our village!"

Also from my tall kilt wearing friend.

What's worn under your kilt?

Nothing, lass. It's all in perfect working order!

Oh, shheeeeshh!
I just remembered my ALL-TIME favorite funny story. Must-post, must-read!
(I'm going to have to find a clean joke now, or my rep will be in the gutter... Along with my mind...)

This
is
the
story
of
Coyote Dick

(From 'Women Who Run With The Wolves' by Clarissa Pinkola Estés.)

Once upon a time there was Coyote Dick, and he was both the smartest and the dumbest creature you could ever hope to meet. He was always hungry for something, and always playing tricks on people to get what he wanted, and any other time he was always sleeping.

Well, one day while Coyote Dick was sleeping, his penis got really bored and decided to leave Coyote and have an adventure on its own. So the penis disattached itself from Coyote Dick and ran down the road. Actually it hopped down the road, having just one leg and all.

So it hopped and it hopped, and it was having a good time and it hopped off the road and out into the woods, where---Oh no!---it hopped right into a grove of stinging nettles. "Ouch!" it cried. "Ow, ow, ow!" it screetched. "Help! Help!"

The sound of all this crying woke Coyote Dick, and when he reached down to start his heart with the accustomed crank, it was gone! Coyote Dick ran down the road holding himself between the legs, and finally came upon his penis in the worst trouble you can imagine. Gently, Coyote Dick lifted his adventurous penis out of the nettles, patted him and soothed him down, and put him back where he belonged.

*

*

*

Well, the real ending of this story is the moral.

The moral is - I don' know if I can write this here, it's really bad!

The moral is - damn, I'm laghing too hard to type it!

The moral is that those nettles,
even once Coyote Dick got out of them,
made his cock itch like crazy forever after.

And that is why men are always sliding up to women,
and wanting to rub up against them with that "I'm so itchy" look in their eyes.
You know, that universal cock has been itching
ever since the first time it ever ran away.

So, which ending didja find the most funny?

A devoted wife had spent her lifetime taking care of her husband. Now he was slipping in and out of a coma for several months, yet she stayed by his bedside every single day. When he came to, he motioned for her to come nearer.

As she sat by him, he said, "You know what? You have been with me all through the bad times. When I got fired, you were there to support me. When my business failed, you were there. When I got shot, you were by my side. When we lost the house, you gave me support. When my health started failing, you were still by my side...You know what?"

What dear?" She asks gently.

An engineer was walking along one day, when he heard a voice call him from out of a pond. When he got close, he was amazed to discover the voice came from a frog! He picked the frog up, and the frog said "Kiss me and I'll turn into a beautiful princess." The engineer started to put the frog in his pocket, when the frog yelled "Wait, you didn't hear me, I'll turn into a beautiful, rich girl, and I'll be your girlfriend."

"Doc, you know I ain't as young as I usta be, and them romantic feeling..*wink, wink* are a bit scarcer than they were 30 years ago...Now, when I'm plowing down in the south 40, sometimes I get the urge...but by the time I get back up to the house,I'm so tired it's gone again. You got any ideas?"

"Hmmmm, John", says the doc, "you know, your place is pretty isolated. Why don't you just take a blanket and your shotgun with you on the tractor, then when you feel in the mood, you can fire off the gun as a signal to Sally to come down to YOU!...She's a bit younger"

"Well, durn Doc, that's a fine idea! I'll try it!"

So....several months later, the doctor meets old John on the street, and can't resist asking..."Hey, John, how did that idea work out...about taking the blanket and shotgun down with you during plowing?"

"Waaal, you know, Doc....that worked pretty damn good...for about 2-3 weeks....then huntin' season started, and I ain't seen her since!"

This is a music thread isn't it?

Roseberry to his lady said
"My hinny and my succour
Oh shall we do the thing ye ken
Or shall we take our supper?"

Wi' modest face, sae fu' o' grace
Replied the bonny lady
"My noble lord, do as you please
- but supper isna ready"

Ineffable is good. I like "inscrutable", though.

My favourite stupid joke is - A woman goes into a butchers shop and asks for half a pound of kidleys and the butcher says ' don't you mean kidneys' she says 'I said kidleys, diddle I '

I liked this one about Jimmy Shand. He was staying at a B&B after a gig, and woke hungry for breakfast. The landlady brought him a hardly adequate breakfast with small portions of everything. She came over to say that she kept her own cow for the butter and milk. Jimmy looked at the table and asked if he might have some toast and jam. When she brought it in it consisted of a slice of toast, and a minute pot of honey. Jimmy looked wryly at her and said " I see you also keep a bee".

i attended the manchester mc swaree last night in the jolly angler and someone [8 pints other half, sorry i forget your mc name :-)] told us a true story of a wedding she attended.

the happy couple had made a request for the church organist to play the theme from robin hood, prince of thieves, which contains a sentiment something like 'i do/give all o everything to you'

after the priest had finished the wedding ceremony, the newly weds turned to walk back down the aisle hand in hand; only then to be greeted with the organist's rendition of 'robin hood, robin hood, riding through the glen!'

wot a corker!!

132 messages in one thread are too many. There is hardly any point in starting a new thread called " BS: All time classic jokes, part 2" since the jokes in this thread aren't classics, anyway. I suggest that anyone who wants to post another joke go to the thread called

PermaThread™: List of all joke threads.,


pick an appropriate thread from that list, and refresh it. Many of those threads are much shorter than 100 messages.
