Joke 877

Tourist Alert

Tourist Alert (Photo credit: scazon)

A bus load of tourists arrive at Runnymede. They gather around the guide who says, “This is the spot where the barons forced King John to sign the Magna Carta.”

A fellow at the front of the crowd asks, “When did that happen?”

“1215,” answers the guide.

The man looks at his watch and says, “Damn! Just missed it by half-an-hour!”


Two tourists were driving through Louisiana. As they approached Natchitoches, they began arguing about the pronunciation of the town’s name.

They argued back and forth until they stopped for lunch. As they stood at the counter, one tourist asked the employee, “Before we order, could you please settle an argument for us? Would you please pronounce where we are…very slowly?” 

 The girl leaned over the counter and said, “Burrrrrrrr, gerrrrrrr, Kiiiiing.”

    OH, the Burger King made me laugh. When I lived in Puerto Rico, I dusted off my Spanish and tried to order at a Burger King in the local language.

    ME: Una hamburguesa con queso, por favor. (Cheeseburger, please)
    SERVER: “WHOPPER CON QUESO!” Embarrassing!

    Oh, when I began reading this, I just KNEW the Burger King one would follow, or else I’d send it to you. WE used to live near Kosciusko, Mississippi, and that joke went around there, too. 🙂
    By the way, it’s “NACK a dish” Louisiana, and “KAU zee” Mississippi. (They drop the last half of the word, there, which should be “kau zee US go”
    What a world, eh? 🙂


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.
