St Patrick

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

As you may be aware, today, 17th March, is St Patrick’s Day, where much of the world seems to find a reason to have a connection with Ireland. St Patrick was an interesting character, and unlike lots of other patron saints, had a close association with Ireland.  He was born in a celtic part of…

Lemon Jokes

Often, the topic for the week’s one liners is from a random source, and this week is one of those. No idea why, but here are some lemon jokes. Hope they don’t leave a sour taste. As normal, don’t expect them to be too funny or original…   Went to the shop today to buy…

Max Verstappen in Formula One Winter Testing, 2015

A Max Verstappen gallery

Max Verstappen is the son of former Formula One driver Jos Verstappen, and given his family history, a career in motor racing is not that surprising. As well as his father, known as Jos The Boss, his mother, Sophie Kumpen, was a kart driver, and his maternal grandfather, Paul Kumpen, was a GT driver. His…

Samsung Galaxy S6

Phone Jokes

I wrote earlier in the week about attending the Mobile World Congress this week in Barcelona, where the new Samsung Galaxy S6 was launched, so what better a topic for this week’s one liners and puns than phone jokes. Don’t be too shocked though, like with most ring tones, at a lack of originality or…

MWC15: Mobile World Congress

I’ve been in Barcelona – or, rather, near Barcelona – for a few days for Formula One Winter Testing, and as is often the case, the event times well with the Mobile World Congress. The Mobile World Congress 2015, or MWC15, is the annual gathering and trade show for those in the mobile industry. I…

Caerlaverock Castle

Castle Jokes

I wrote earlier this week about a trip to the fantastic Bolsover Castle, one of the many fine properties managed by English Heritage, and so, with castles in my head, here are some castle jokes.  You may need some defense from these… Of course, they come with the usual lack of guarantee of funniness or…

A trip to Bolsover Castle

Bolsover Castle is unsurprisingly found in the Derbyshire town of Bolsover, and is a sight familiar to many people, particularly those who use the M1 motorway on a regular basis. The castle is easily spotted by those passing by on this main arterial route through the county, and is a short drive from the motorway.…

Square pizza

Pizza Jokes

I had a pizza earlier in the week, and for some reason, it made me think that pizza would be a good topic for the jokes this week. If you are wondering where the photo is from, it was from a pizza delivery place in Krakow, Poland, that had very nice pizza. Anyway, here are…

Pancake Day

Pancake Day

It’s pancake day.  For many, Shrove Tuesday, as it is also known, is associated with little other than the making of pancakes, but there is of course more meaning to the day than that.  In the Christian calendar, the day marks the eve of Lent, a time of abstinence, when traditionally people shrive, or confess…
