The Giant's Causeway

The Giant’s Causeway

The Giant’s Causeway is one of the most famous natural landmarks in Northern Ireland, with the hexagonal basalt columns looking curiously man made, and giving rise to the legend that provides the name of the rock formation.  The story goes that Finn MacCool, a local giant, built the causeway to meet Benandonner, a giant in…

The Dark Hedges, Northern Ireland

Road Jokes

Welcome to 2015.  My first page of one liners this year is about road jokes, possibly because of my six hour drive earlier this week after a Christmas holiday visit.  As normal, don’t expect these to be particularly original or funny…   I know someone in a band called White Line. They’re very middle of…

The Dark Hedges, Northern Ireland

The Dark Hedges

The Dark Hedges is the local name given to part of Bregagh Road not far from Ballymoney in County Antrim, Northern Ireland.  The road has a series of beech trees that were planted by the Stuart family in the eighteenth century to impress visitors to their home at Gracehill House.  The coach house and stable…

Curry Jokes

It’s Boxing Day, which means that there are plenty of people out there making turkey curry – and turkey sandwiches and all sorts of other turkey based dishes, no doubt – so what better topic for today’s one-liners than curry jokes.  As normal, don’t expect an original recipe, or too much funniness…     I…

Party Jokes

One of the features of this Christmas time of the year is the number of celebrations that occur, and the opportunities to catch up with various groups of friends, family and colleagues.  I’ve been to a few parties over the last few days and realised that I had not thought of any jokes, or even…

There Are Two Types of People jokes…

A conversation over coffee this week seemed to feature lots of one-liners that featured the starting phrase, “There are two types of people in the world…” or something similar, so here are a series of Two Types of People jokes.  That said, if one of the types of people is those that post original and…

A Horse near Kirby Muxloe Castle

Horse Jokes

This week’s series of one-liners and puns takes the form of horse jokes.  They, as ever, come with no guarantee of funniness or originality…   Got annoyed when I found out someone had used my raw materials for a new scarecrow to feed their horse. That was the last straw. What do you call a…

The Force Awakens in Lego

The Force Awakens… in Lego

One of the big media stories of the last few days has been the release of the teaser trailer for Star Wars Episode Seven – which unusually for the series is actually the seventh film released – with the film called The Force Awakens. Sci Fi fans of a certain age who remember Star Wars…

Plane Jokes

We have had one liners about other forms of transport before, and this week, the topic for the puns is plane jokes, so hopefully these will get off to a flying start. As normal, don’t expect too much hilarity or originality…     Just saw an aircraft made of bubbly chocolate. Think it was an…

A trip to Sierra Leone

Sierra Leone is in the news at the moment for the wrong reasons, with the Ebola outbreak making headlines around the world. I thought it would be a good time therefore to write about a trip to Sierra Leone which was altogether more positive, in this West African state that I have found to be…
