A Joke! Remember them? ,
Relax! Not demeaning to Ladies nor even Women! grin

Scotland’s First Minister was visiting an Edinburgh hospital and enters a ward full of patients with no sign of illness or injury and greets one.
The patient replies;
“Tae fair your honest sonsie face,
Great chieftain of the puddin race,
Aboon them a’ you take your place,
Painch, tripe or thairm,
As lang’s my airm”

The Minister is confused and moves on to the next patient and says hello..
The patient responds:
“Some hae meat and canna eat,
And some wad eat that want it,
But we hae meat and we can eat,
So let the Lord be thankit”

Even more confused, the Minister moves on to the next patient who immediately begins to chant;
“We sleekit, cowerin, timorous beasty
Thou needna start awa sae hastie,
Wi’ bickerin brattle”

The Minister turns to the accompanying doctor and asks
“What kind of facility is this? A mental ward?
“No” replies the doctor, the serious BURNS unit” - `

So is this a Scots bashing thread?

Ouch! 😆

That’s one way of putting it - racist stereotypes and as such ‘jokes’ not remotely funny. OP joke was great though

Well I thought the first joke was funny but the second one was just beyond the pale.

Firecracker123 Fri 09-Apr-21 10:16:39

No it's a sense of humour thread😁 have you got one lol.

Good joke Rufus

Firecracker123 Fri 09-Apr-21 10:17:25

Firecracker123 Fri 09-Apr-21 10:26:36

Good joke Rufus grin We could all do with a laugh right now.

A man goes to his doctor and says “Doctor, doctor, it hurts when I touch my neck, arm or chest.”

The doctor looks at him and says “You’ve broken your finger”.

I’m not offended by racist jokes - i just find it very sad that some people find them appropriate and amusing.

Polarbear2 Fri 09-Apr-21 12:01:57

Well that went downhill rapidly! Good first joke tho.

Yes and Blossoming s was fine. But I don’t think on the whole joke threads fare well on GN for obvious reasons.

Aveline Fri 09-Apr-21 12:05:24

Its good to laugh. I can hardly remember the last time I had a really good laugh.

suziewoozie Fri 09-Apr-21 12:10:18

It’s possible to laugh without indulging in racist stereotypes

Firecracker123 Fri 09-Apr-21 12:10:34


Perhaps you should stay off them then 😂

Mogsmaw Fri 09-Apr-21 12:13:18

rufus great joke. We all need a laugh!
firecracker not so much, there are eadies in Facebook where likeminded people share “in jokes”. A more general readership finding them distinctly unfunny shows you are posting them in the wrong place.

The joke was a dig at Nicola Sturgeon it wasn't racist {perhaps some people are too easily offended and continually play the racist card where no racism exists) obviously only digs and joke about Boris are allowed. Lol
