Joke 83

15 Jun

Thanks to Sidey for this one.

A travel agent looked up from his desk to see an old lady and an old gentleman peering in the shop window at the posters showing glamorous destinations around the world.

The agent had had a good week and the dejected couple looking in the window gave him a rare feeling of generosity. He called them into his shop: ‘I know that on your pension you could never hope to have a holiday, so I’m sending you off to a fabulous resort at my expense, and I won’t take no for an answer.’

He took them inside and asked his secretary to write two flight tickets and book a room in a five star hotel. They, as can be expected, gladly accepted, and were off.

About a month later the little old lady came into his shop. ‘And how did you like your holiday?’ he asked eagerly.

‘The flight was exciting and the room was lovely,’ she said.  ‘I’ve come to thank you – but, one thing puzzled me. Who was that old bugger I had to share the room with?’

    Like the story, don’t get the cartoon! What’s that in the chicken’s tummy?

    One of those plastic temperature gauges that pops up when the chicken is done.

    You might want to adjust your glasses; it’s a turkey 🙂

    Touche! Loved them both.


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
