Laughter is the Antidote to Brexit

Laughter is the Antidote to Brexit

Steve Blakeman 10/02/2019 5

The Poke have decided that Brexit is such a "depressing sh*tshow" that we all need cheering up on such a cold and frosty Sunday evening. So what better than some classic Tommy Cooper one liners to put a smile on your face? Well, it worked for me.

  • A policeman knocked on my door last week and told me that my dogs were chasing people on bikes. My dogs don't even own bikes.
  • I just found out I am colourblind. The news came completely out of the green.
  • Police arrested two kids yesterday. One was drinking battery acid, the other was eating fireworks. They charged one and let the other one off.
  • I said to the gym instructor: ‘Can you teach me to do the splits?’ He said: ‘How flexible are you?’ I said: ‘I can’t make Tuesdays’.
  • It was so cold today I saw a lawyer with his hands in his own pockets.
  • I told my psychiatrist that I might be a kleptomaniac. He gave me tablets and said, "if you're no better in a week bring me a colour TV".
  • I've just been on a once-in-a-lifetime holiday. I'll tell you what, never again.

So how do you forget about Brexit? As Tommy would say "just like that"...

    Brexit is a bummer, an Englishman, a Scotsman and an Irishman walk into a Spanish bar. The Englishman wanted to leave so they all had to go and he called that "democracy".

    Does anybody knows when the UK will reapply for EU membership?

    I heard the Pound is losing so much value that they're changing the name to the Ounce.
