Rain Jokes

After a rather glorious July, August seems to have arrived with a reminder of what summer showers in the UK can be like, and so, as my journey home yesterday was punctuated with heavy rain, it seemed that Rain Jokes was a good a topic for this week’s puns and one liners as ever.  Rather…

The 2014 Heather Scarecrow Festival

Scarecrow Jokes

I posted this week about the rather excellent Heather Scarecrow Festival, so it seems that a good topic for puns and one-liners this week might be scarecrow jokes. As normal, they come with no guarantee of funniness or originality…  although appropriately enough, these are more corny than normal.       A scarecrow friend of…

2014 Heather Scarecrow Festival

The 2014 Heather Scarecrow Festival

The village of Heather is a pleasant place in North West Leicestershire, and dates back to the Doomsday Book on 1086, when it was recorded as Hadre, or The Heathland. These days, you might know it for its pubs and live music – very good considering a population of just under 1000 – or at…

Flying Jokes

I was out this week with a couple of friends, and they suggested that a page of one-liners about holidays may be topical. However, as we have had holiday jokes already, I thought flying jokes would be a relatively close topic. As ever, they come with no guarantee of funniness or originality…     A…

The BRDC Archives

I was lucky enough to spend last weekend as a guest of the BRDC – the British Racing Drivers’ Club – for the Silverstone Classic event across three days, featuring historic cars of various vintages.  The BRDC were excellent hosts, and spending time in their clubhouse, with superb views of the track, as well as…

Commonwealth Games Jokes

The UK finds itself in he wonderful position of hosting he world’s third biggest summer games at the moment, after hosting the second biggest – The WPFG – in Belfast in 2013, and of course, the biggest – The London Olympics – in 2012. So, in their honour, here are some Commonwealth Games jokes. Unlike…

Parc Ferme at the 2014 German Grand Prix

Sunday at the 2014 German Grand Prix

Well, that was quite a race. Where to start?  We headed off to the circuit on Sunday morning, as the rain started, and as the early races were most definitely wet. As we watched the GP2 race – which was, as usual, superb – we could see the dry line starting to develop on the…

Giedo van der Garde, Marcus Ericsson and me at the 2014 German Grand Prix

Saturday at the 2014 German Grand Prix

My last post brought us up to the end of the day at the circuit on Friday, at Hockenheim for the German Grand Prix. The rest of the evening was fun, made up of a nice dinner in a lovely square in nearby Mannheim before heading to the equally picturesque university where we almost ended…

Arriving at the 2014 German Grand Prix

Friday at the 2014 German Grand Prix

The phrase “an early start” means different things to different people, but I’m sure that most people would agree a three o’clock constitutes an early start. That was the time that my alarm went off yesterday morning, and as I headed off at 0330, I checked – again – that I had my ticket with…

Tree Jokes

It’s Friday, so time for some one liners. Today, it’s the turn of tree jokes. I’m tempted to branch out to some puns,but maybe I should leaf it as it is…. As normal, these come with no guarantee of funniness or originality.     How does a tree get on the Internet? It logs in.…
