This week’s offerings:


From the Uxbridge English Dictionary:


WC2……….downstairs cloakroom.

Winnebago…….a horse with a bad back.



It’s St George’s Day and a hooded armed robber bursts into Lloyds Bank on the Bail and forces the cashier to stuff a shed-load of cash into his sack. As the robber goes to leave, one very brave customer grabs the robber’s hood and pulls it down, revealing his face.

Without hesitation the robber shoots the man stone dead. He then looks around the bank to see if anyone else has seen him. The cashier is looking straight at him and so he walks over and calmly shoots her dead too.

Everyone by now is very scared and looking down at the floor.

“Did anyone else see my face?” screams the robber.

After a few moments of silence and extreme tension all round, one elderly gentleman from Castle Hill Club, looking down at the floor, tentatively raises his hand and says, “I think my wife, standing here right next to me, may have caught a glimpse.”


Kind regards
