A joke that hits home...


My brother's fiancée told a joke at the weekend, which translated roughly as the following:
"Due to the Labour Government's Post Office Closure programme and the current financial climate, Postman Pat has been made redundant. What do people in Greendale now call him?

Pat."
Of course, it works with Fireman Sam too...

Thanks Jim. What can I say? My future sister-in-law doesn't have her finger on the pulse...

So she works for the NHS then?

Did you hear about the bulimic stag party?

The cake came out of the girl.

Okay, I recognise that my joke is not hugely funny and that readers do not appreciate humour.

Will stick to what I do best - occasional political analysis and ridiculing Lib Dems. Okay Stephen?

Your first sentance is an oxymoron. If your joke was not hugely funny but your readers do not appreaciate humour how could they tell? Surely only those who would appreciate humour would differeniate that your joke wasn't funny?

As for your second sentance. Yeah just carry on, somebody has to fill Jeff's shoes, while he wears his sandals in the far east. ;)

Actually Stephen, forget the oxy, it might just have been moronic...

Good point...

Incidentally, I'm about to start a series of posts about the next General Election. May be of interest to you - I'm sure I'll bait you on some of my predictions....
