Can I Tell This Joke?

Funny story: Can I Tell This Joke?

People trying to make other people laugh are up against it. We are unable to tell jokes about: Women, Irish people, Scottish people, Black people, Jewish people, Homosexual people and any minority group with a persecution complex. So who can a tell a joke about? What about other comedians - is that OK? Will I be an anti-Jokeist? It isn't funny. You have to watch every word and delete any wor...

My trousers

I have never thought of myself as a fashion icon, but an experience I have recently had has made me think again. When I work in the garden I use an old pair of denim trousers, torn with holes all over them. Recently I was gardening and remembered that we needed to get some milk. So I downed tools and set off for the shops. I had not changed my trousers and realised I had also forgotten to w...

Seventy four

Funny story: Seventy four

The Beatles stopped at 64, but if you go further the next mile post is 74. At least it is for me because there is not much else to shout about. I mean, to have lived to 74 is some sort of achievement. I've had to remain alive and be getting enough money to at least feed myself. But then the next achievement. Married for yonks - could be a bit dull and tedious but it is something! Now I'm...

Unnamed Media Wizard

The first signs of Altzeimers Disease are memory loss and confusion. One should therefore sympathise with the Chief Executive of a large media organisation who has shown these symptoms recently. Not wishing to attack this person in name I will not upset his father by naming him. Freedom of speech can only go so far and it cannot include an attack on the reputation of someone who has always c...
