    Default Where's the joke thread ?

    I looked !


    A Texan visitor to England asked an Englishman to show him the biggest building in town.
    “There it is,” said the Englishman. “It’s quite impressive, I must admit.”
    “You call that big?” scoffed the Texan. “Back in Texas we have buildings just like that but over a hundred times bigger!”
    “I’m not surprised,” said the Englishman. “That’s the local lunatic asylum!”

    I've heard speculation that bubbles took offense to one of the jokes, and got the whole thing deleted. Have you heard that? I think I heard that Fox News was carrying the story.

    Hope the voyage is a long one.
    May there be many a summer morning when,
    with what pleasure, what joy,
    you come into harbors seen for the first time...
