    Good Morning Ricky,
    answer is......
    "One shoots and can't hit,
    And the other........
    "Hoots, and ........ "
    "I don't wish to know that, kindly leave the stage!"

    That reminds me of the difference between a girls' track team, and a tribe of pygmies.

    One is a band of cunning runts...

    While reading through the falklands war I came across this gem.


    During the heat of the fighting, a radio message was received from No 4 section near Navy Point saying tthe it had three targets to engage and what were the priorities. 'what are the targets?' asked Norman. 'Target No 1 is and aircraft carrier; Target No 2 is a cruiser; Targett .....'

    The radio went dead.

    Well it made me chuckle.

    trackpin; That's funny!

    American sitcoms just plain suck. They ran out of original ideas about 20 years ago and now just recycle the same network crap with a little different spin. American comedy movies are usually pretty good though.

    I really liked Monty Python and Benny Hill though.

    Monty Python is utterly brilliant, IMHO, whereas Benny Hill... could be regarded as brilliant in his own field. After all, I couldn't think of that many inuendo jokes in a lifetime. :grin:

    But look who's talking, the Dutch are by far the worst comedians in the world. Nothing the Dutch try is even remotely funny, so we end up copying British and Belgian concepts.
