While Anticant and Dame Barbara are frolicking in warm thermal baths [or wish they were], I am minding the shop, with the invaluable assistance of the faithful Beadle and Mrs Malaprop, not to mention Wooffie [who says "why not?"].

Gleanings from the internet joke factory have been a bit sparse lately, but I thought the following might amuse - though the bad language at the end will doubtless shock Zola to the core:

WIFE: What would you do if I died? Would you get married again?

HUSBAND: Definitely not!

WIFE: Why not - don't you like being married?

HUSBAND: Of course I do.

WIFE: Then why wouldn't you remarry?

HUSBAND: Okay, I'd get married again.

WIFE: You would? (With a hurt look on her face).

HUSBAND: (Makes audible groan).

WIFE: Would you live in our house?

HUSBAND: Sure, it's a great house.

WIFE: Would you sleep with her in our bed?

HUSBAND: Where else would we sleep?

WIFE: Would you let her drive my car?

HUSBAND: Probably, it is almost new.

WIFE: Would you replace my pictures with hers?

HUSBAND: That would seem like the proper thing to do.

WIFE: Would she use my golf clubs?

HUSBAND: No, she's left-handed.

WIFE: - silence -

HUSBAND: Fuck....

Anti, I don't want jokes off the net - I get them sent to me all the time.
I want your experience and experiences - before it is too late.
Your writing of past times has been truly wonderful and I crave another dosage - whether in the Burrow or The Arena.

Leave the jokes to the stand-ups and fill the Net with your own personna.
We need it - more than ever.

No bullying in the Burrow.

By Order

No more free drinks in the Snug for you, Merkin.

And if you're not careful, you'll get yourself crossed off the list for a copy of my impending Memoirs.

Back to your caber tossing!

Merkin said...

Profuse apologies to all Burrow staff.

(Mine's a large Bells - just like Charlie Paris).

Thatz more like it.

(And a half of lager).
