Spotted on Facebook today: "It’s hard to get your head around at first I think I was in de Nile for a while..."

Oh dear!

Can anyone top that? gringringrin

Doesn't it depend on what they were talking about? confused

(I get the "de Nile"bit. Not funny on it's own)

So funny 😀

Almost very post I type is full of things like that - a result of fat finger syndrome and auto correct. My proof reading isn't brilliant so quite a few of them make it past the preview stage, and I'm sure some of them are real howlers! blush

Reminds me of something my DS said on a trip to Paris.
"If I fall off this bridge will I be in Seine? "
Quite amusing from a ten year-old.

That’s funnier than the de nile joke mcem 😄

It's a pun.

A bit like:
'This shop charges like a wounded bull.'
'She lies like a faltfish.' etc.

BradfordLass72 Sun 24-Nov-19 04:11:11

Or even a flatfish grin

Do you really find these funny, clever maybe, but I m not exactly splitting my sides

Here's a couple of pictures which amused me but then humour is very personal.

Sorry one is very blurred.

I have a post card with this written on it and it always amuses me:
"I want to be what I was when I wanted to be what I am now!"

I think they are all funny but I'm in a good mood! grin

My mum used to have the sub titles on when watching TV and there were some hilarious ones on there.

The only one I can remember was during a tennis match where the spectators started to boo and the caption read "there was booze on court"!

There was a discussion programme on about Islamism and the subtitles said "Amazon is evil".

Chewbacca Sun 24-Nov-19 16:55:06

Brilliant Chestnut, that made me laugh out loud!

Chestnut Sun 24-Nov-19 17:01:58

My mission for today has been to bring a bit of humour to the boards, even the terribly serious political ones!

Chewbacca Sun 24-Nov-19 17:07:09

Then consider it a day well spent Chestnut! Yours was the only post that has made me laugh this weekend. flowers

Somebody put on facebook that they were recovering from meezulls! Was a while ago, took me ages to work that one out.
