Since he was put on furlough, JOHN22 decided to keep fit by walking 5 miles a day. He started 7 weeks ago, and now he has no idea where he is.
Dubliner, on the other hand, started to insulate the roof of his house but he's lost enthusiasm lately; he's lagging a bit.
Liam's Norwegian cruise was cancelled & it was a blessing in disguise; he couldn't really fjord it.

Forty gypsies arrived at Heavens gates.
St Peter said we’ve only got room for twelve, so decide amongst yourselves who’s coming in
5 minutes later St. Peter said to God…there gone!
God said, “all forty of them?”

St Peter said, “No, the fu**ing gates!!
---------------------------------------------------------

Dubliner, came home and was greeted by his wife dressed in stunningly sexy lingerie. "Tie me up," she purred, "And you can do anything you want."

So he tied her up and went golfing!

I'm afraid this weekend's Tony Blackburn show was a bit thin on jokes, so I've had to fall back on my reserve. And here it is.
I saw a bloke in Tesco buying up all the crabs, whelks, cockles, lobsters etc.
I thought - that's a bit shellfish.

The Coronavirus has really taken it's toll on businesses here.
The kennels has had to call in the retrievers, the local branch of Dyno Rod has gone down the drain and the ice cream seller was found dead, his head covered in raspberry sauce, a flake and hundreds & thousands; he couldn't take any more, he topped himself.

I made a curry last night & put Ginger in it. That made the wife & kids cry.....they loved that cat.
Oxygen and magnesium.......OMG.
I passed a car with a sticker in the window that said, "I'm a vet, so I drive like an animal." I thought, there must be a lot of gynaecologists on the roads.
That's it for now, mirth fans, I'll be back on Monday with the cream of tomorrow's Tony Blackburn Show.......

For golfers

We know that a Sally Gunnel shot is an ugly runner
A Douglas Bader is a ball that bounces across water

Now we have a Dominic Cummings shot:

Long drive, out of bounds, with no penalty.

The Seven Dwarfs have been told that from Monday they can meet in groups of six.
One of them isn't Happy!

I told my suitcases that there will be no holiday this year.
Now i'm dealing with emotional baggage.

This morning at the post office, while i was in line, two people with masks entered.
TOTAL PANIC!
Then they said, "This is a robbery".......and we all calmed down.......

Liam, sorry to be pedantic, but Douglas Bader wasn't one of The Dambusters....wouldn't Guy Gibson be more appropriate? Just don't mention his dog. :oops:

Now, I've shocking news for you....I've been ripped off - by Tony Blackburn, no less!! :evil:
There I was, sat down for breakfast Saturday morning, cuppa in one hand, pen in the other, waiting to jot down his best offerings (although the quality's been very poor of late) when what should I hear but my "dog playing the trumpet on the underground" joke. Needless to say, it was the funniest joke on the show, but here's the rub - Tone never gave me no credit for it. Now that, in my book, is plagiarism. Acknowledge your sauce, that is paying homage; pass it off as your own, that is a rip-off. OK, I've been using Tony's stuff for years - decades, in fact - it's high time he had one back. Fair enough - he could've given me the credit, that's all I'm saying. "I got this ribbed tickler from comedy genius Steve Masters" or something like that - wouldn't have hurt him, would it? :twisted:

Any way, rant over, here's the pick of the TB Show jokes;
I went to a Chinese restaurant, but my meal was spoilt by a bird that kept looking at me from behind a door. I mentioned it to the waiter, but he said, "Ignore it - it's just a Peking duck."

A friend of mine won Dentist of the Year. But all he got was a little plaque.
:wink:

A friend of mine is an airline pilot on furlough from British Airways during the pandemic. To earn some spare cash he took up decorating. I thought I would give him a try to help him out. He did OK but made a great job of the landing.

Sorry to be pedantic (again), but one of them IS Happy - it's the other six who aren't. :roll: Maybe they should start a group - The Not-Happy Mondays?

Anyway, did you hear about the explosion at the French cheese factory?
There was debris everywhere. Bit subtle for ya? Ok, try this; what do you call a man with a rubber toe? Roberto. I'm glad the shops have opened, I bought myself a new blindfold.....but I cant see myself wearing it.

Right, you have been warned, I've been saving them up, so empty your colostomy bags now, mirth fans, coz you'll be pissing yourself with laughter in about 10 seconds at Steve's Birthday Extravaganza of Mirth.

A milkman threw a pint of milk at me - I thought, how dairy.
8 out of 10 people who have a fear of hurdles never get over them.
Never fall in love with a girl who only knows 4 vowels; she wont know u exist.
My wife left me for a limbo dancer - how low can you go?
What do get if you cross an artist with a policeman? A brush with the law?
And finally, Ronnie - I used tippex instead of liquid Viagra and had a massive correction.
Eye thenk-yew.

I'm reading a horror book, in braille.
Something terrible's about to happen, I know - I can feel it.

The Government has asked various medical experts for their opinions about lifting Lockdown. Allergists are in favour of scratching it, but dermatologists are against any rash moves. Pathologists said over my dead body and paediatricians said just grow up.
Any more, people? Over to you.......

It's OK to play golf again. Just buy 2 pairs of trousers, in case you get a hole in one. I went to a garden centre to buy some small stones for the driveway; I was stopped by the police - it was the wrong type of gravel.

When I was born I was so surprised I didn’t talk for a year and a half.

An American tourist walks out of a Mexican train station when he notices he isn't wearing his watch. A Mexican man is resting under a sombrero under a nearby tree.
The American approaches the Mexican and asks, "Excuse me, do you know what time it is?"
The Mexican looks at the donkey, grabs its balls, and replies, "4:30."
The American asks, "How do you know that?" The Mexican replies, "Well you get a handful of the donkeys balls and lift them up so you can see that clock across the street."

JOHN22 told his wife "We should embrace our mistakes."
So she gave him a big hug. Blue_Light_Colorz_PDT_07

Liam crossed a racing pigeon with a woodpecker. When it comes home, it knocks on the door. Blue_Light_Colorz_PDT_02

Dubliner tried his hand at baking in the lockdown. He wanted to make a meal using every type of herb. But he ran out of thyme.
