I Thought you might enjoy this......... LOL

Seeing as we are all suffering with pain of varying degrees, I find one way to lighten up a bit and distract myself with humour, so I will now try and post a transcript. I hope it comes out as a photo, but may be a link, as I am not that good with techie stuff. :)

Hope it raises a smile or three.!!

  • Hi Gemini.

    Pleased you liked it and had a laugh. I really do find humour helpful at times. Thanks for the hug too. :)

    hugs from Huggs x :)

  • A good laugh does you the world of good,made my hubby laugh aswell, ( and that takes some doing lately ).

  • Hi again Gemini,

    That's what I call a result!!! Making hubbies laugh is always good. Will see what else I can come up with.

    Laughter is always a good medicine. :d

  • Hi Huggs, I was feeling so sorry for myself and your post made me laugh out loud . You are right humour goes a long way towards lifting the spirits. Thank you so much!

  • HI Bluebaby,

    I am glad you had a good laugh, and you are welcome.

    Take care,

  • The last time I heard this supposed joke it was the USS Harry S Truman on route to Portsmouth UK in 2005.

    There has never been an HMS Britannia aircraft carrier. The last one was a Dreadnought sunk in 1918 by U boat.

    Prior to her the name has always been used on 100+ gun ships of the line.

    So whether it is an American or Irish "joke" it just shows ....

  • Hi Rib,

    When I first posted this joke it was suppose to be true, but have subsequently found out it wasn't true. Doesn't really matter if its true or not, or what countries are or are not involved, it is still funny, and that's the aim of the game. It has given a few people a good laugh, and I still find it funny although I had come across it before. So what is your taste in humour then, and I will try and find something for you? lol

    hugs from Huggs xx ;)

  • I'll just stick with your [[ hugs ]] thank you.

  • Hi Rib,

    Okay, hugs it is then. :)


    I am not sure if this is the right thing or not, or if it will work, but here goes anyway.

  • Wonderful bare bear hugs. Did you know that Winnie the Poo has been banned in Poland because he is indecently dressed and is of a questionable sexual identity? True.

    I thought he was a cartoon and therefore had no sexuality and as a bear didn't need to wear clothes anyway. What do these idiots do in their zoos? I would like to see the guy who puts the bras on the lioness after she has fed her cubs. How about the firm who has the contract for the making nappies for the baby crocodiles? Rib

  • Hi Rib,

    Its total madness, isn't it? Downright political correctness losing the plot. I hadn't heard of that happening in Poland, but would believe it.

    Yes, you can just see them at their local job centre or whatever, advertising for people to put 'huggies' on crocodiles. lol

    It could be a whole new industry, making bras for nursing mother animals!! You may be on to something there Rib, a gap in the market. lol

    Pleased you enjoyed your bear hugs.

    hugs from Huggs xx :)

  • Can't read it unfortunately so will settle for a Pooh hug.

    The greatest little bear ever ever ever

    Pat x

  • Hi Pat,

    I am sorry you cannot read it in its present form. If it helps I will type it out as in a normal post a bit later on.

    The Pooh hug is an animated one, if you can imagine that. ha ha

    Take care,

    hugs from Huggs xxx :)

  • Hi Pat,

    I have typed out the transcript, which you were unable to read in the way it was presented, in the hope that you can enjoy the joke too.


    This is the transcript of the actual radio conversation between the British and the Irish, off the coast of Kerry, October, 1998. Radio conversation released by the Chief of Naval Operations on 10-10-98.

    IRISH: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South, to avoid a collision.

    BRITISH: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the North, to avoid a collision.

    IRISH: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

    BRITISH: This is the Captain of a British Navy Ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.

    IRISH: Negative. I say again, you will have to divert YOUR course.

    BRITISH: This is the aircraft carrier HMS Britiannia! The second largest ship in the British Atlantic

    Fleet. We are accompanied by three destroyers, three cruisers, and numerous support

    vessels. I demand that you change YOUR course 15 degrees North, I say again, that is 15

    degrees North, or countermeasures will be undertaken to ensure the safety of this


    IRISH: We are a lighthouse. Your call.

    Hope you can read it now Pat.

  • Thanks Hugs spot on.

    Makes me smile.

    Pat x

  • You are welcome Pat, pleased you enjoyed it and had a smile.

    hugs from Huggs xx :)

  • Brilliant, thanks.

  • Hi Heorte,

    You are very welcome and glad you enjoyed it.

    hugs from Huggs xx :)

  • Hehe :) :) :) that's excellent!!!

  • Hi joolzzz,

    Its a good one, and I still have a giggle even though I have read it a few times.

    hugs from Huggs xx :)

  • Funny enough that's another side affect through long chronic pain a sense of humour.thanks for trying its a change from people like me who only winge keep up trying Huggs.

  • Hi Grumpygrampa,

    We all have a whinge at times, its normal but I do find humour a good distraction, even playing pranks is good!! I will keep trying. Glad you enjoyed it.

    hugs from Huggs xx :)

  • You keep trying Hugs,even if it helps a few people smile that's fine. You know what they say (you can please some of the people some of the time but you can't please all the people all the time ). But since it's on a pain concern there will be a few people Haveing a really bad day. But I say keep it up I love laughing instead of crying.

  • Oh and I keep putting smiley faces on but unlike everyone else mine keep disappearing HaHa

  • Hi Gemini,

    I will keep trying!! Promise, but it will have to be a bit later on, as I am not having a great day myself at the moment, but hope it will improve. I have a couple of things in mind, but fully understand when pain is really bad it takes over a bit. Other times humour or something else helps. Will post later, and to do a smiley face, all you do is a colon and right hand bracket, but if you are on an iphone or ipad it may not work.

    hugs from Huggs xx :)

  • Hugs, it's your day to be a bit selfish, don't worry about anyone else,just look after yourself. We all have a little self pity from time to time.

  • Sorry to hear that you are not having such a good start to the week. I hope a big [ HUG ] will help. Rib

  • Hi Rib,

    Thanks for the big hug, and I am sure it helped. :) Can concentrate a bit better now, so will reply to some people and will type out the transcript at the end of this thread so that Paton can read it too.

    hugs from Huggs xx :)

  • Bloody marvellous.

    Best laugh for weeks.



  • Hi nedd,

    So pleased it gave you a good laugh. It does us the world of good, and by us, I mean everybody, but sometimes, just sometimes it can be a distraction too.

    You are welcome, and have a letter in mind for the next one.

    hugs from Huggs xx :)

  • LOL ! Made me laugh out loud x

  • Hi Rosie,

    When I read it the first time it made me laugh out loud too, and I still have a giggle no matter how many times I read it. Glad you enjoyed it.

    hugs from Huggs xx :)

  • Absolutely brilliant!

    Fluffie hugs to you :)

    xxx sian :)

  • HI zeb,

    So pleased you liked it and had a laugh about it, and thanks for the fluffie hugs as well.

    hugs from Huggs xx :)

  • I've seen it many times before but still love it! Thank you!

  • Hi badbackjonny,

    It is a good one and never fails to make me laugh, and you are welcome.

    hugs from Huggs xx :)

  • Great stuff. This made me laugh, which having woken up in a lot of pain this morning, I really appreciated. They do say laughter is the best medicine.

    I note that Gemini71 said it made her husband laugh as well, I will show it to mine, when he gets home from work.

    Many thanks


    P.S I read your reply to Rib with the hugs link and it did work and I think its great

  • Hi Susan,

    Sorry you woke up in so much pain, but glad you had a laugh for a while. Yes the men like the jokes as well I have found. I have such a good man joke, but not sure whether to post it or not. ha ha The ladies will love it, and most men take it in the spirit it is intended, which is just a bit of fun. Glad the hugs link worked also.

    Take care, and you are welcome,

    hugs from Huggs xx :)
