There was a guy, a Glasgow guy, and he was out for a walk and he was doing "out-for-walk things". I'm not a great "go-for-walk" person, but he was doing whatever people going for walks do ... Go for a walk, walking. Oh, a tree, I'm glad I came. Oh, there's a bird, what a walk this is turning out to be! And he was walking along some cliffs ... He went along those cliffs and the sea was pounding on the rocks beneath "POUND"! Oh, sea pounding on rock, it's great. What a walk! Right! So, look at that, pounding. My legs are walking, they never think. And he fell off! To get straight to the point: over the top. And he was hurtling towards the sea, grabbing handfuls of fresh air as he went. "Help, I have fallen in mid-walk!" And he was passing ... there was a bush sticking out, a bush was sticking out of the cliff as he was passing it. (He) grabbed on (and) he's hanging there. "HELP! HELP! ANYBODY UP THERE? ANYBODY UP THERE? - [God in a soothing voice] "Yes, my son. I am up here, I am everywhere ... [Glasgow guy ] "Look, hey. I was out for a walk there and I slipped on something and I fell down here and I am hanging onto this bush. Bush here, I'm hanging on." - [God] "I know. I know all things, I see all things, I am the father of all things." - [Glasgow guy] "... very good. Look, I don't think you understand. I'm hanging onto this bush and my hand is getting sore,  I can't hold much longer!" - [God] "I know. And your hand will get even sorer until you can stand the pain no longer, you'll let go and plummet to your death on the rocks below. But fear not, for you shall join me in heaven." - [Glasgow guy] "IS THERE ANYBODY ELSE UP THERE?"                           [Transcript of a live performance by Billy Connolly at The Rainbow Theatre, London (1977)]

A Glasgow guy was learning no parachute and he was in the aeroplane and he went up to the instructor and said: "Look, ... I don't want to look stupid or anything, you know what I mean, but you've got to tell me again what you do, I've totally forgotten, I'm panicking." He said: "Look, there is nothing to it. Basically, you jump out of the door, a static line will open your parachute and you'll float gently to the ground." - "Aye, that's great, but look supposing it doesn't open?" He said: "In the unlikely event of your parachute failing to open" - they always say that (on) aeroplanes, don't they? 'In the unlikely event of this aeroplane crashing into a mountain and bursting into flames, there is a life-jacket under your seat. ... Put it on, come back to life, no problem!' - So he said: "In the unlikely event of your parachute failing to open, you have a reserve parachute in the front (?) with a red little handle. Give it a smart tug, it will develop, you'll float gently to the ground." He said: "That's great, sure, but what if it doesn't? Just suppose it doesn't." He said: "In the EXTREMELY unlikely event of the reserve parachute failing to develop, pray - preferably to Allah." "Yes," he said, "(but) I'm a Christian." He said: "It doesn't matter, pray to Allah." Okay. So he jumped out - nothing! And he is hurtling through the air and he is trying to get it to open - nothing! So he's (trying to deploy) the reserve (parachute) - the whole thing comes off. He is looking for his hanky. He is scudding through the sky. He says: "What's the bloody thing I have to do? Oh, yeah! ALLAH, ALLAH, HELP ME!" And a big black hand came out of the sky, picked him (up) gently and placed him softly on the ground. He said: "Well, thank Christ for that! And a big black foot went ... [sound of smashing]!!!                                                 [Transcript of a live performance by Billy Connolly at The Rainbow Theatre, London (1977)]

If we could only have a pair of roller skates, we wouldn't have to run anymore." God says: "Say no more." And instantly each mouse is fitted with a beautiful pair of tiny roller skates.
About a week later, God checks to see how the cat is doing. "How are you doing? Are you happy here?" He asks. The cat yawns and stretches and says, "Oh, I've never been happier in my life. And those meals on wheels You've been sending over are simply delicious."

Joke of the week [304 = year 6, #44] restaurant joke (1)     (May 12, 2008 - May 18, 2008)

A depressed-looking man is sitting in a cheap, greasy diner in a Leeds suburb. He picks up the menu and sees that it contains just three dishes: meatloaf, shepherd's pie and Yorkshire pudding. The waitress comes over to take his order. "I'll have the Yorkshire pudding," says the man glumly, "and if you could throw in a few kind words that would be mighty welcome." The waitress leaves and returns a few minutes later with a plate of Yorkshire pudding. She bangs the plate on the table in front of the man and starts to walk off. "Hey," says the man. "I got my dinner; how about those kind words?" The waitress turns, takes the cigarette out her mouth and says, "Don't eat the pudding."

Two Jewish men go to a Chinese restaurant. While they are talking, one of them wonders how many Jewish people there are in China. They both agree that there must be some, but neither is sure how many. When the waiter comes over, they ask him if there are any Chinese Jews. "I don't know," replies the waiter. "I ask in the kitchen. They will know." So the waiter goes to the kitchen, then comes back. "Sorry. No Chinese Jews," he says. "What?" says one of the men. "No Chinese Jews at all?" "Sorry," repeats the waiter. "We got orange Jews, apple Jews, but no Chinese Jews."

Tony goes into his favourite restaurant and orders his favourite dish: a bowl of tomato soup. The soup arrives and Tony looks at it for a moment before signalling the waiter to come back. "Taste the soup," says Tony. "Why?" asks the waiter. "Just taste the soup!" says Tony. "Sir, you've been coming in here almost every day for many years," says the waiter. "You've always enjoyed our soup." Tony says, " I know. Taste the soup!" The waiter protests, "But what's wrong? Is it too hot? Not hot enough? Tony says, "Taste the soup!" "But I don't understand, sir," splutters the waiter. "Did we leave out the salt? Perhaps you don't have enough bread? Is it the bread? Do you want more bread? "Tony glares at the waiter, "Just - taste - the bloody - soup!" he shouts. The waiter gives in, "All right, sir, all right, I'll taste the soup!" He looks around, "Where's the spoon?" "Aha!" says Tony.

Joke of the week [308 = year 6, #48] the English gentleman     (June 9, 2008 - June 15, 2008)

From the Xenophobe's Guide to the English, Oval Books (2008):
Since the English rarely say what they mean and tend towards reticence and understatement, their humour is partly based on an exaggeration of this facet of their own character. So, while in conversation they avoid truths which might lead to confrontation; in their humour, they mock that avoidance. For instance:
At dinner in a great country house, one of the guests drinks rather too much wine and, without warning, slumps across the table. The host rings for the butler and when he arrives says. "Smithers, could you please prepare a room. This gentleman has kindly consented to stay the night."

Joke of the week [309 = year 6, #49] Irish joke (13)     (June 16, 2008 - June 22, 2008)

An Irishman and an Apache are walking through the Navajo desert when they hear a "Woo! Woo!" sound coming from a nearby cave. The Apache tears off his clothes and runs towards the cave, shouting "Woo! Woo!" in return. "Why are you making this sound?" calls out the Irishman. "And why are you stripped stark naked?" The Apache shouts back over his shoulder, "It's a mating call and there's a woman in the cave who's more than ready for you know what. Woo! Woo!" With that, the Apache runs over to the cave and disappears inside. Suddenly the Irishman hears another "Woo! Woo!" coming from over the hill. He runs to the top of the hill and sees a large cave in the next valley. The "Woo! Woo!" noise comes from the cave once more. "Hang on, me darlin'!" shouts the Irishman. "I'm coming!" The Irishman runs down the slope tearing off his clothes. "Woo! Woo!" he shouts, and runs into the cave. Next day, the headline in THE DENVER POST reads, "NAKED IRISHMAN RUN OVER BY FREIGHT TRAIN."

Joke of the week [311 = year 6, #51] Irish joke (15)    (June 30, 2008 - July 6, 2008)

There once was a 98-year-old Irish nun, who lived out her days in her convent in County Tipperary. She was very frail and her health was beginning to fail. So her doctor prescribed her a shot of whisky three times a day to "fortify"  her, as he put it. However, the nun would hear none of it, saying that she hadn't had even the tiniest drop of alcohol throughout her whole life and certainly wouldn't give in to the devil's worldly temptations now, at the end of her days. But the mother superior found a way out of the dilemma. She knew that the elderly sister loved milk. So she instructed the kitchen to spike the milk three times a day. Eventually, the pious nun approached her final hour. As several sisters gathered around her at her bedside, the mother superior asked if she wanted to leave them any words of wisdom. "Oh, yes." she replied. "Never sell that cow!"
