This week’s offering !

A bloke is in a queue at the supermarket when he notices that the rather dishy blonde behind him has just raised her hand and smiled hello to him. He is rather taken aback that such a looker would be trying to catch his eye, and, although familiar, he can’t place where he might have seen her before, so he says “Sorry, do you know me?”

She replies “I may be mistaken, but I think you might be the father of one of my children!”

His mind shoots back to the one and only time he had been unfaithful, “Oh no!” he says “you’re not that strip-o-gram on my stag night that I had my wicked way with on the snooker table in front of all my mates?”

“No” she replies somewhat taken aback, “I’m your son’s English Teacher!”
