A Baker Tale

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.)

A Baker Tale

Post by Bobinwales » Mon Nov 21, 2016 7:57 pm

A man went into a baker’s shop and asked the price of a cake. The baker told him it was a pound. Happy, the customer asked the price of another and that too was a pound.
Realising that there was a bit of a theme going on he asked if all the cakes were a pound.
The baker replied, “Yes. They are all a pound. Except that one. That’s Madeira cake”.

With the right context almost anything can sound appropriate.

Is this a joke that only the British get, or am I unusually dense today?

Read it out loud, preferably in a Scottish accent.

NOW I get it! The only Scottish accent I could hear in my mind was Scotty saying, "I dannae if she can take any more, Captain!" and " I've giv'n her all she's got captain, an' I canna give her no more." :)

When I think of a Scottish accent I always hear the great Highland poet Ewan McTeagle
reciting some of my favourites like “'What's twenty quid to the bloody Midland Bank?', “Sixpence” or his masterpiece “Can I Have 50 pounds to Mend the Shed”. I cried the first time I heard those.
