This one was submitted by Mike Franklin.

Prince Charles is making a hospital visit in Scotland and goes into a ward and asks the patients how they are.

The first one replies:

Fair fa’ your honest, sonsie face,
Great chieftain o the puddin’-race!
Aboon them a’ ye tak your place,
Painch, tripe, or thairm:
Weel are ye wordy of a grace

Ferment It’s Worth

I was out at Fitzroy Island recently – I keep saying you haven’t lived until you spend some quality time in the water with a Green Sea Turtle and then have a fine beer in Foxy’s front bar. It’s the kind of place where you sit down, look around and wonder what all the underprivileged people are doing.

Reminds me that last October I was there and Foxy’s was doing a sort of October Fest. Because everything has to come … Read the rest...

Sister Cities

This was sent in by Frank Reid.


The residents of the town of Ramsey on the Isle of Man in the UK decided that they would partner (we call them Sister Cities) with the town of Novokutznetsk in Russia. The Manx population was very happy, as were the residents of Novokutznetsk. A large, joint celebration was planned in both towns.

To commemorate the event, the citizens of Ramsey constructed a miniature of their famous “Albert Tower” to go in the … Read the rest...

A Pun Taken to Pharaoh

Mike Franklin submitted this little gem.

A Wheely Good Pun

Dave Wallace sent this in, saying that he cobbled it together from several “Aviation Herald” threads.


A Mistral Avions de Transport Regional ATR-72-212A on behalf of Alitalia, registration OY-YAB performing flight AZ-1821 from Pantelleria to Trapani (Italy), was enroute when air traffic control informed the crew that a nose wheel had been found on the departure runway and had been identified as belonging to their aircraft.

The crew continued to Trapani, performed a low approach to have the landing gear … Read the rest...

A Seasonal Feghoot

Mike Franklin sent in this little adventure of our friend Ferdinand Feghoot.


On a December trip to Frostbite Falls, Minnesota, Ferdinand Feghoot was summoned to the local college, Wossamotta U. by Inspector Fenwick, the Chief of Police. There he was confronted with an appalling scene. Bullwinkle, the town’s leading citizen, had been smashed flatter than a kippered herring by a falling safe.

“It’s a common enough means of death for cartoon characters,” Fenwick opined. “Every year we lose five or … Read the rest...

A Broken Pencil is Pointless

Jim Macaulay submitted this shaggy little guy.


Some years ago, there was a man by the name of Leroy Walter Macaulay, or Lee Wally, as he was known by friends and family, that lived in the mountains of North Carolina, in a clearing just outside of Highlands, North Carolina. He lived in that clearing with his wife, Mary Sue, and his son, Cane. Lee Wally made his living making bootleg liquor, more commonly known as moonshine, in the still of … Read the rest...

I Marrowly Escaped this One

Dennis Adams sent in this one. Blame him.


A number of cannibals were talking about their favorite foods.

One said, “I like Mexicans, because they are nice and spicy.”

Another said, “I prefer Americans, because they are so soft and tender.”

The third said, “I like Israelis because they come in so many flavors.”

“What do you mean?” asked one of the others.

He replied, “Well, there’s orange Jews, apple jews, grape jews…”… Read the rest...

I Could Wax On About this Pun

Dave Wallace sent this little gem in, that while not exactly timely, is wonderfully subtle. I expected it to go in a very different direction.


General: Mr. President, we have just received news that 2 Brazilian soldiers were killed.
Bush Jr.: Oh God! This is horrible news! (tears up)
General: Is everything OK sir?
Bush Jr.: Just… how many… is one brazilian?… Read the rest...

First Christmas Joke 2013?

Mike Franklin sent in the following little gem.


There seems to be room for all sorts of jokes here so may I suggest something seasonal?

Three men died on Christmas Eve and were met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates.

‘In honor of this holy season’ Saint Peter said, ‘You must each possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven.’

The Englishman fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a lighter. He flicked it on. ‘It’s a candle’, … Read the rest...

A Mime is a Terrible Thing to Waste

Another story from Joe Blake.


Whilst Welsh miners are noted worldwide for their musical ability, there have been instances of other talents being discovered “down the pits”. One case which comes to mind was that of “Silent Llewellyn” who was, of all things, an excellent mime artist. Whilst it was not something he could exercise very successfully in the semi-dark of the workface – for example his mime of “She Stopes to Conquer” both went down like a lead balloon … Read the rest...

A Shaggy Stone Gathers No Moss

Another submission from Joe Blake.


A competition was held to determine who would be given the commission to create a series of bronze statues of The Rolling Stones.

The hunt went world-wide, via TV, Newspapers, The Internet, and even word of mouth. After 12 months the judges had eliminated all but 5 artists, based upon their smile, their hairstyle, their huggability, their body odour, dress sense and even their artistic ability as displayed in samples of their work.

These were … Read the rest...

Jim Macauley’s Bulwer-Lytton Entry

Jim Macauley sent in his rejected Bulwer-Lytton entry. I think we have better taste here than the Bulwer-Lytton judges do.


In the food preparation area of the Topkapi Palace in 15th century Istanbul, Mehmet, the master chef and author of the renowned “Dissertation on Desert Desserts,” was busy demonstrating that he could improve the flavor of most dishes with just a sheik of sultan pepper.… Read the rest...

Golf is Good for Italian Men

From Brother Tom Vickery.


An 80-year-old Italian goes to the doctor for a check-up. The doctor is amazed at what good shape the guy is in and asks, “How do you stay in such great physical condition?”

“I’m Italian and I am a golfer,” says the old guy, “and that’s why I’m in such good shape. I’m up well before daylight and out golfing up and down the fairways. I have a glass of vino, and all is well.”

“Well”, … Read the rest...
