And Then Another Old Smile....

While on the subject of old jokes, you may enjoy the one below, first posted back in 2010. Back when I was blissfully unaware of a dust cloud that’s going to wipe us all out in thirty million years. You know what? I need to forget that cloud until a tad closer to collision time.

Yo Dave? Take a break from those ‘tough talking’ EU negotiations and have a laugh with us. Or do you giggle? You may as well buddy because, in a pair of weeks or less, when your renegotiations finally completely unravel for all to see, a whole hell of a lot of folk are going to be laughing at you.

No warnings required for this story. Oh! Wait! If you happen to be an hyperventilating feminist, skip the blue bit, okay? And if you’re a blond hyperventilating feminist, skip the blue bit but be aware, it’s just a bit of fun.  Man, you can’t even type a joke nowadays without apologizing in advance for possibly offending some ‘group’ or other.

    A blond decides to try horseback riding, even though she has had no lessons or prior experience.
   She mounts the horse, unassisted, and the horse immediately springs into action.  As it gallops along at its steady and rhythmic pace, the blond begins to slip from the saddle.
   In terror, she grabs for the horse's mane, but cannot seem to get a firm grip. She tries to throw her arms around the horse's neck but despite her best efforts, slides down the horse's flanks.
   The horse continues to gallop along, seemingly oblivious to its slipping rider. Finally, giving up her frail grip, the blonder attempts to leap away from the horse and throw herself to safety but unfortunately her foot has become entangled in the stirrup.
   She is now at the mercy of the horse's pounding hooves as her head is struck against the ground time and time again.
   As her head’s battered against the ground, she is mere moments away from unconsciousness when, to her great good fortune, Frank, the Tesco trolley guy, sees her dilemma and unplugs the kids ride.
