Politics and curiosity
« on: May 31, 2018 »


Jeremy Corbyn called John McDonnell into his office one day and said,


"John, I have a great idea !  - We're going to go out and win back Middle
England."


"Good idea Jeremy, how will we go about it." said McDonnell.


"Well," said Corbyn, "we'll get ourselves two of those long Barbour coats,
some proper Hunter wellies, a stick and a flat cap - oh and a black
Labrador.

Then we'll really look the part. To check it we'll go to a nice old country
pub in Much Something in the Other, and we'll show them that we really enjoy the
countryside and Middle England."


"Right comrade.." says McDonnell.


So, a few days later, all kitted out and with requisite Labrador at heel, they
set off


Eventually, they arrived in a quiet village and found a lovely pub and with
the dog, went up to the bar.


"Good evening Landlord, two pints of your best real ale, from the wood please if possible."
says Corbyn.


"Good evening Jeremy." says the Landlord - "Two pints of the best coming
up."


Corbyn and McDonnell stood leaning on the bar contemplating taking over the
country, nodding now and then to those who came in for a drink, whilst the
dog lay quietly at their feet.

Suddenly the door from the adjacent bar opened and in came a grizzled

Old shepherd complete with crook.

He walked up to the Labrador, lifted its tail with his crook, looked underneath,
shrugged his shoulders and went back to the other bar.


A few moments later, in came a wizened old farmer who followed the same
procedure, to the bewilderment of Corbyn and McDonnell.


People of all ages and gender followed suit over the next hour.

Eventually, unable to stand it any longer, McDonnell called the landlord
over.


"Tell me, my good man," said McDonnell,


"Why do all these people come and look under the dog's tail like that?

Is it an old country custom?"


"Good Lord no," said the landlord.


"It's just that someone has told them that there is a Labrador in here with
two a*seholes."

Hmmmm ....Mr Bear.. Much as I love your regular supply of much needed humour, I have to point out that you told this same joke on 8th September last year. Never mind though ... keep up the good work.

frogeddy there are not many funnies on the rounds at present. Blame it on Brexit as it gets blamed for most things. However it does alleviate the ennui.
