Daily Laughs

It is Wednesday

are you ready for it,

can you take it,





Please enjoy yourself and have a great laugh or even a wee chuckle.

Joke Laureate xxx

I suppose you're pale and breathless and standing at death's door,

And if I don't attend you, you'll be dying on the floor,

It is my daily hazard, and really, truth to tell,

I'd love to meet a patient who tells me he is well,

His lumbago isn't killing him, his bunions playing up,

And who doesn't leave his DNA by peeing in a cup.

I'm sick of all you sickies, malingering every day,

Who want a pill for everything you think or do or say,

So pack your rancid troubles, and vamoose, skedaddle, hop,

And dump your sorry carcase at the undertaker's shop.

Horace's Fairy God Mother

Horace Walpole Gladstone McGhee,

Was a boy who only came up to my knee,

His eyes were all crossed, his fingers all thumbs,

And he had three fat bellies and two big fat bums.

And all the long day, the children would yell,

Be off with you, Horace, you're weird and you smell,

And Horace was sitting quite filled with despair,

When he heard a strange footfall on his mother's back stair,

And there in the hallway, all glowing and white,

Stood his own fairy godmother, who gave him a fright,

Said Horace, have you come to grant me three wishes?

Nay lad, said the fairy, I just helps with the dishes,

For being a fairy is not what it was,

I'm fresh out of wishes, and here is because,

I'll just help your poor mother to cook up some lunch,

I'm afraid I'm a victim of that old credit crunch.

I wanted to be quiet but I found it couldn't be done,

I tried a vow of silence but that wasn't any fun,

I said that I would shut up for the whole fortnight of Lent,

But then I went and talked about the price of hops in Kent.

I wanted to be quiet for a wedding in the church,

But I just sat a-yakking till the bride was in the lurch,

Because the groom defected ‘cause he couldn't stand the din,

And now the wedding's cancelled and it's on account of him.

But my verbal diarrhoea went on for days and days,

I even took to phoning the call-centre down at Kays,

The tele-girls refused my calls, they said I was a bore,

And they actually diverted me to the call centre next door.

The custard sat upon the fat, the nursemaid counted three,

The moomrath jigged upon the mat while the stripper drank her tea.

The jelly danced the pas de deux, the wombat sang the blues,

And four and twenty bright young men went out in blue suede shoes.

The doormat sang a sad, sad song, the walrus played his horn,

And the colander felt water drain when a milk-white mare was born.

Three pussy cats did wail all night, two doggies barked in rhyme,

And Andre Diggs, the demon chef, swam in the Serpentine.

But alas, alack, the ghosts came back, and rattled their chain and ball,

And Annie Sprinkle peed all night, while at Carnegie Hall,

And so our story here must cease, our tale must surely end,

Or else go on for twenty years, and drive you round the bend.

Eat Your Greens

Gretchen Jerusalem, Montague Deans,

Completely refused to eat-up her greens,

She said no to carrots and broccoli too,

And sent all her cabbage to Regent’s Park Zoo.

Her mother tried bribery, her Gran tried coercion,

But couldn't get Gretchen to eat up her gherkin,

And she spat out her apples and banana delight,

Which gave a poor waitress a terrible fright.

Cauliflower, marrow and prickly pear,

Gretchen did turn out and leave on the stair,

And she said to her betters, if it grows in the ground,

On my dinner plate it will never be found.

But what is this hatred, her parents did plea,

Well, honest, said Gretchen, it’s exposed to dog pee,

Stray mutts who are passing just cock up their legs,

And water tomatoes who sit in their kegs.

You’re right, said her mother, these veggies must stop,

I'll take it up now at the grocery shop,

So they went down to Sainsbury’s, and said, is it fine,

That veggies are watered with pee and urine?

But the grocer said, smiling, come folks, what’s the harm?

While he secretly shopped them to the state funny farm,

And now the whole family are shut up, quite tight,

In the veggie-free territory of those men dressed in white.
