Another walking-into-a-bar story

We've created this area in the hope of seeing material ranging from some well-told (or well retold) jokes to original writing with a humorous slant, or anything else that might appeal to the kind of person who enjoys playing with words more than people. That probably means someone like yourself. N.B. -- Postings preceded by ** contain some sexual or risqué content. (Makes them easier to find.)

An Irishman, an Englishman and a Welshman walk into a bar.

The barman looks at them and says:
"What's this, some kind of joke?"

They put health warnings on packets of cigarettes.
They banned smoking in pubs.
They are going to put health warnings on bottles of alcoholic drinks.
Sound familiar?
Mark my words, it will happen.

Note for non UK residents:Smoking in public places has already
been banned in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland,
the English legislation comes in on 1st July.
The Republic of Ireland banned it some three years ago.

.. and in Aus too Bob .. some Councils have even banned smokers from beaches and outdoor dining areas in restaurants .. we have dropped to 17% smokers now .. pretty soon it is going to be almost impossible to have a fag anywhere .. I must admit that it is great to be able to breathe fresh air in pubs and restaurants ..

Same same. It started with restaurants and pubs and now the push is on to ban it in all public spaces. Soon, it will only be legal in my own house. Actually, it’s been illegal in my house for years. I guess I’ll have to quit. I vow that they will never stop me from running with scissors. A man has to make a stand at some point.
Two “fags” walked into a bar… “Call the Cops!”

I had a feeling that WoZ's "have a fag" was going to cause comment, as no doubt will my remark that I haven't had a fag for nearly three years now. My moiety is an ex-smoker, and if ever you need a reason to give up...

Smoking is now illegal here anywhere the public are allowed if it is enclosed, even your car, van or lorry if your colleagues are allowed to drive it as well as you, or rooms in your own home if you work from there and meet the public from time to time.

If you have an interest, these are the FAQ’s from the website.
