todays joke

Gordon Brown called Peter Hain into his office one day and said, 'Peter, I have a great idea! We are going to go all out to win back Middle England'.


'Good idea PM, how will we go about it?' crept Hain.

'Well' said Brown 'we'll get ourselves two of those long Barbour coats, some proper wellies, a stick and a flat cap, oh and a Labrador. Then we'll really look the part. We'll go to a nice old country pub in Wiltshire, and we'll show them that we really enjoy the countryside".



'Right PM' said Hain.' So a few days later, all kitted out and with the requisite Labrador at heel, they set off from London. Eventually they arrived at just the place they were looking for and found a lovely pub and, with the dog, went in and up to the bar.



'Good evening Landlord, may we have two pints of your best ale, from the wood... Peter's paying - he's always flush with cash.' said Brown.



'Good evening Prime Minister' said the landlord, ' two pints of best it is, coming up'.

Hain and Brown stood leaning on the bar drinking their beer and chatting, nodding now and again to those who came into the bar for a drink.



The dog lay quietly at their feet. Suddenly, the door from the adjacent bar opened and in came a grizzled old shepherd, complete with crook. He walked up to the Labrador, lifted its tail and looked underneath, shrugged his shoulders and walked back to the other bar.



A few moments later, in came another old shepherd with his crook. He walked up to the dog, lifted its tail, looked underneath, scratched his head and went back to the other bar. Over the course of the next hour or so, another four or five shepherds came in, lifted the dog's tail and went away looking puzzled.



Eventually Hain and Brown could stand it no longer and called the barman over.



'Tell me' said Brown, 'why did all those old shepherds come in and look under the dog's tail like that? Is it an old custom?'



'Good Lord no,' said the barman. 'Its just that someone has told them that there was a Labrador in this bar with two arseholes!".

Re: todays joke

Yup, that sound about right for Wiltshire.



I can say that, because I live in Wiltshire.

Re: todays joke

I'm amazed that all those crooks managed to find shepherds, must be a different part of Wiltshire.
