Tripping Along The Ledge



Holmes and Watson are on a camping trip. On their first night away, they lie in their camp beds looking upwards. “Look at the cosmos, Watson” says Holmes. “What does it suggest to you?”

“To me,” replies Watson, “It suggests the insignificance of man and the infinite power of an Almighty who created such a wondrous universe.” “On the contrary, my dear Watson,” replies Holmes. “It suggests our fucking tent has been stolen!”

    That finished second in one academic’s attempt to list the funniest jokes ever. See here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/World%27s_funniest_joke

    From Wikipedia:

    The winning joke: A couple of Mississippi hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn’t seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: “My friend is dead! What can I do?” The operator, in a calm soothing voice says: “Just take it easy. I can help. First, let’s make sure he’s dead.” There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy’s voice comes back on the line. He says: “OK, now what?”

    Top UK joke: A woman gets on a bus with her baby. The bus driver says: “That’s the ugliest baby that I’ve ever seen. Ugh!” The woman goes to the rear of the bus and sits down, fuming. She says to a man next to her: “The driver just insulted me!” The man says: “You go right up there and tell him off – go ahead, I’ll hold your monkey for you.”

    No hint of racism in that last one at all, nope, erm, not a bit.

    It’s an old joke Lenny, but I rejigged it as best I could. To be honest I just needed some text to go between the Talking Heads YouTube clip and the photo of a wall.

    Tell ya what, how does “Midget Wrestlers Killed in Hooker Romp” grab ya…

    Ha, yeah saw that one this morning.

    I’m also quite partial to the Sun front page headline that reported David Carradine’s death: Bill from Kill Bill killed by thrill
