[Author's note: A Birmingham or "brummie" accent is rather thick and "chews" words somewhat.]
A brummie is sitting on the bank of a canal fishing. A friend strolls along the bank towards him and watches silently for a few minutes."Caught anything?" he asks. "Caught a whale!" the angler replies and gives his rod a flick.The friend looks slowly around, then down at the keep net dangling in the water. "Whadya dew with et?" he asks the taciturn angler. "Threw et back!" says the angler. "Yew caught a whale and threw et back?" asks the friend incredulously. "O' course!" says the angler, "Rusty and had no spokes!"
