A man decides to get a pet, so he goes to a pet shop.
He tells the manager, "I want something special - not your boring pets, like a cat or a dog."
So the manager says, "Well how about this centipede then? Not your run of the mill pet, and he talks - a snip at £200."
The bloke says, "Well that's a bit steep....I warn you, if he doesn't talk, I'll want me money back."
So anyway, he buys the centipede & takes him home. That evening, he fancies a drink so he says, "Fancy going down the pub, Mr. Centipede?"
No reply; well the bloke thinks he must be tired after that trip from the pet shop. Ten minutes later he asks again - "Fancy going down the pub, Mr. Centipede?" Again, no reply.
Another ten minutes later, he's fed up. He says, "Last time of asking - do you fancy coming down the pub or not??"
And the centipede says, "Alright pal, I heard you the first time - I'm just putting my shoes on."



And I'll tell you something else: if Warburton doesn't get results, he'll be toast.

Great managers are not born - they are bread!

Which ship doesn't call at Liverpool?
The Premiership!

I went for a walk in the country with a pal. He noticed some animals and said, "Look at that flock of cows." To correct him I said, "Herd of cows."
He replied, "Of course I've heard of cows - look, there's a flock of them./"

Les said he had big plans for the club; Warburton said "I'll have a slice of that."

No jokes for 10 days?? Time to blow the cobwebs off.
SOS - I need your help!
A bloke called Buster is spamming me on the Internet.
He keeps sending me videos of 70's glam-rockers, The Sweet?
I've got no idea how to get rid of him - does anyone know a way? here's got to be a way to block Buster.

Warburton always clears his plate at tea-time; yes, he always has the wholemeal.

Well, walshy, one good thing you can say about Warburton is, he always uses his loaf.

Anyway, I was in my local Ann Summers shop & I told the checkout girl I'd like a thong; she went, "Jutht a thong at twilight..." They had a dildo, on the box it said, "9 inches & realistic" - I thought, well which is it??

Oh, and one more thing - as Lootenant Columbo always used to say:
How many Countdown contestants does it take to change a
LBLIHBUTG ???

No more Warburton jokes? Crumbs!

Anyway, hear about the man who was in court accused of stealing calendars? He got 12 months. Eye thenk-yew!

And here's a bonus - one I've just nicked off of QBP on Facebook (remember, it's not plagiarism if I acknowledge my 'sauce')
I've just booked tickets to see the new Elton John film, "Rocket Man.".
I asked the cashier how long it lasts; she said, "I don't know; but I think it's gonna be a long, long time."

Welcome to the Psychiatric Hotline.
If you are obsessive-compulsive, please press 1 repeatedly.
If you are co-dependent, please ask someone to press 2.
If you have multiple personalities, please press 3, 4, 5, and 6.
If you are paranoid-delusional, we know who you are and what you want. Just stay on the line so we can trace the call.
If you are schizophrenic, listen carefully and a little voice will tell you which number to press.
If you are depressed, it doesn't matter which number you press. No one will answer.
If you are delusional and occasionally hallucinate, please be aware that the thing you are holding on the side of your head is alive and about to bite off your ear.

I am indebted - as the late, great Cyril Fletcher used to say on That's Life - to our very own Andy Wardle, who posted this gem on Facebook.
(if I acknowledge my 'sauce,' it's not plagiarism!)
Q: How many grammar Nazis does it take to change a lightbulb?
A: Too.

BAD TASTE ALERT - NOT FOR THE FAINT-HEARTED:
I was in the toilet on a train, and the guard knocked on the door.
"Ticket, please."
I replied, "I'm having a dump."
He said, "OK - pass it under the door."
I said, "Here it comes - the yellow bits are sweetcorn." :oops:

When I got off the train, I went to a Psychic Fair. All the clairvoyants were either angry or miserable; there was no happy medium. :P

Liam rang me last night, he said "Steve, if I win the Laziness Award, will you pick it up for me?"
:roll:

I'm a big fan of actor Warwick Davis, but he really needs to play some more diverse roles; every film I've seen him in, he's played a dwarf. :oops:

I was driving around & around the car park this morning; couldn't find a spot for the life of me. So I prayed, I said "Find me a parking spot Lord & I'll mend my ways." All of a sudden, the clouds parted & a ray of sunlight shone down on an empty spot. I said, "Don't bother, Lord - I've found one!"

Just heard a great new CD, "Music For Limbo Dancing."
By Gary Barlow.
That might be a little subtle for you, try this:-

A friend's trying to get me to invest in old Egyptian monuments-
but it sounds like pyramid selling to me.

I was in a restaurant last night, I said "How long will my spaghetti be?"
The waiter said, "I don't know - we don't measure it."

I went to a wedding at the weekend.

I said to the bloke next to me "The bride is very ugly".

"Do you mind" came the reply "she happens to be my daughter!"

"Very sorry " I say "I didn't realise you were her father"

"I'm not - I'm her mother!"

I went to an Indian restaurant last night. After the meal, the waiter said "Curry OK?" I said, "Alright - got any Neil Diamond songs?"
The Indian karaoke champion was there - Gorupta Singh.
He asked me, "Are you the bloke who sings Neil Diamond songs?"
"I am," I said.
