In the 1980s, the Spanish singer Julio Iglesias used the word 'Manana' on UK TV. The host asked him to explain. He said," Maybe the job will be done tomorrow; maybe the next day, maybe the day after that, or perhaps next week, next month next year, who realy cares ?" The host then asked the other guest, country singer Mudrack Flatlands, if there was an equivalent Australian term. "Nah, he replied, "In Australia we don't have a word to describe that degree of urgency.

My ears pricked up to a reported radio advert misspeak:

"There will be an Easter Bunny hunt followed by and Easter Bunny Breakfast".

I am surprised there is nothing done potato-wise for Easter in the deeply distant Hibernias. I am expecting Irish seed potato to fulfil promise to grow some here for comparison (and to reduce sea miles on car-freight for some of ilk returning from the Curragh pilgrimages). It's rath getting on for such a planting but, heigh-ho, what can a mere unIrish male do?

Groan meter at ready Bob?

A psychiatrist's secretary walks into his study and says,
"There's a gentleman in the waiting room wearing camouflage clothing asking to see you.
He claims he's invisible."

The psychiatrist responds, "Tell him I can't see him."

That joke is older than I am (Still good though.)

If we're resurrecting old music hall jokes:

I say I say I say, my dog hasn't got a nose.

How does it smell ?

Bloody awful.




There's a man outside selling clocks.

Tell him I haven't got time for him.


.

Doctor Doctor I think I've got an inferiority complex.

I can't think why you insignificant little moron.




Knock knock.

Who's there ?

Doctor.

Doctor who ?

EXTERMINATE EXTERMINATE




And finally one from the late great Tommy Cooper.

I went to see a show at the London Palladium but they told me all the seats were taken, and I couldn't go in.
I said: "I bet you'd have seat for Prince Charles if he was coming."
"Well yes," they replied. "Of course we would."
"Well he's not coming, so I'll take his."
