Good grief, it's been a long night - too warm and sticky (by English weather standards anyway) to sleep well plus both Hubby and I have had a bad night, himself with his back and me with my leg. Then to cap it all, just when I seemed to be settling, our 'house guest' saunters in at 4.15 this morning making enough noise to wake the dead. Anyway I digress.
Having seen a joke I had posted on FaceBook (see 'Yummy!' below), conversation, at the quiz last night, turned to humour and how my jokes were unfunny and/or as old as the hills. Okay, so they might have a point, but could they do any better I challenged. Here is one of their suggestions, please let me know what you think or even share your favourite joke with me - I could do with a laugh.
This little blonde girl comes home to her mammy and says " Mammy, we learned to count today. Everyone else counted to five but I counted to ten. Isn't that very good? Isn't that because I'm blonde, Mammy? "
" Yes, dear, " says the mammy, " that's because your blonde."
The same thing happens the next day with the alphabet. " Mammy, Mammy, " says the little blonde girl, " all the other girls only got as far as D, but I got as far as K. Isn't that very good, Mammy? Isn't that because I'm blonde? "
" Yes, darling, " says the mammy. " That's definitely because your blonde."
The third day she runs in to tell the mother that at school today, they all went swimming. " And all the other girls had no breasts, Mammy, but look at me! I'm thirty- six D. Isn't that good, Mammy? Isn't that because I'm blonde? "
" No darling, " says the mother. " That's because your twenty-five."
And whilst on the subject of favourite jokes, perhaps now is a good time to share one of Hubby's.
