could you write the rest of the story please.

jura2 Sat 17-Nov-18 11:48:44

... planning their charity dance for Children in Need perhaps?

MawBroon Sat 17-Nov-18 12:02:51


What was it Jeremy Corbyn said about the British sense of humour?

gillybob Sat 17-Nov-18 12:21:31

Maybe they were planning a “party” hmm

jura2 Sat 17-Nov-18 12:25:11

oh go on Maw- you spin us a funny tale then ...

MissAdventure Sat 17-Nov-18 12:38:35

Then Farage asked if anyone would like to go somewhere else.
There was a lot of different opinions, so they put it to the vote, and over half of the customers voted 'leave'.

So you've decided to ignore your doctors advice and post what could be a contentious thread.
'If' this thread does turn nasty, and you feel that your being bullied, what are you going to say then, to your doctor?

jura2 Sat 17-Nov-18 12:47:47

great story petra - your British SOH is ... wonderful, ta.

Why would it turn nasty- it does not have to, at all. I can't imagine anyone, but really anyone- on here, supporting a BoJo, daddy and Farage triangle.. go on, try.

Well it so often does with a contentious OP Jura and then you say the stress has been getting to you.

To join " I'm a Celebrity get me out of here !"

jura2 Sat 17-Nov-18 13:10:33

Yes Maw, it has- big time, for all sorts of reasons.

But why oh why does this thread have to turn nasty? No need, no need- if it does, it is because some people choose to do so- and it won't be me.

ahaha thanks EllanV. Keep it going.

Davidhs Sat 17-Nov-18 13:17:23

At the pub " this is getting boring let's invite brother Jo Jo and have a laugh"

Nonnie Sat 17-Nov-18 13:20:03

Well it will be contentious if you don't explain it is fiction in words of one syllable! grin

There was something on the Daily Mash about if BoJo's father had kept his promise to withdraw we wouldn't now have a problem!!! For those without a sense of humour let me explain - it is not true it is a joke.

MawBroon Sat 17-Nov-18 13:28:52

So true David even without bringing Johnson Jnr into it. hmm

merlotgran Sat 17-Nov-18 13:33:09

Looks to me like they were about to have a punch up.

Bridgeit Sat 17-Nov-18 13:43:18

It was just a joke.

jura2 Sat 17-Nov-18 13:57:12

That famous British SOH seems to be seriously challenged today- how sad.

MawBroon Sat 17-Nov-18 13:58:44

Clearly not the same as the Swiss one.

maryeliza54 Sat 17-Nov-18 14:01:38

Nonnie why the childish need to carry on ?

Iam64 Sat 17-Nov-18 14:02:30

I may be having a slow moment here but, what does "that famous British SOH seems to be seriously challenged today-how sad" mean?
It sounds just a tad passive aggressive to me but maybe I'm as I said, having a slow moment.

jura2 Sat 17-Nov-18 14:06:54

It was supposed to be funny - but immediately, it 'turned' with this comment:

'What was it Jeremy Corbyn said about the British sense of humour?'

I was hoping other posters would prove that it is alive and well- but it seems not on GN ... a pity.

jura2 Sat 17-Nov-18 14:09:41

From The New Yorker:

The English investment in irony can hardly be overstated, which is why suggesting that an individual, or a community, might be incapable of appreciating it is especially damning. Irony is to the English what self-reliance is to Americans, or what linguistic cultivation is to the French: a core value often elevated to the status of myth.

So Bojo, his daddy and Farage meet in a pub to plan their Charity Ball. They have to decide 3 things- What to call it, What charity to support and how much they were aiming to raise Bojo thought they could make 390 mill and they would give it to the NHS.
See I can do humour- anyone else?

MawBroon Sat 17-Nov-18 14:45:50

So what was it Jeremy Corbyn said about the British SOH which has caused offence or occasioned this passive-aggressive response? confused

maryeliza54 Sat 17-Nov-18 14:53:51

Don’t let’s go there Maw
