Last Saturday a couple I know had spent most of the afternoon Christmas shopping.
As the afternoon progresses the wife realised that her husband had disappeared.
The somewhat irate spouse fished into her handbag, fumbled the buttons on her mobile, called his mobile phone and demanded: "Where the hell are you?"
The husband told her, "Darling, do you remember that Jewellery shop where you saw the diamond necklace that you almost swooned over? I told you that back then I didn't have money but I said, 'Darling, one day you will wear it'?"
"Yes," she said with a smile and a slight blush of excitement, "I remember that, my Love."
"Well", he said, "I'm in the pub next-door to that shop."
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.)
End of topic.
