Brown Aid: Share your best joke

After repeating his Olaf Palme and Ronald Reagan joke (first used in 1986) and his story about Hilary Benn believing that Nelson Mandela was talking about Tony Benn not Tony B…


Sorry, I lost the will to live typing that because I’ve read it so often as an example of Gordon Brown’s sense of humour.  

Anyway, apparently, in a televisual age repetition of the same joke and anecdote at every meeting isn’t good enough for the public and there are calls for Gordon to get a new joke.  So do share.  Tell us a joke that could be used by Gordon Brown (interpret this as you wish).

About loveandgarbage

I watch the telly and read when not doing law stuff and plugging my decade and a half old unwatched Edinburgh fringe show.

    Here’s another example of ol’ Gordy’s wit. Don’t ask me how i know this. I’m ashamed to reveal the answer:
    GB: Oh, so you’re a student?
    STUDENT: Yes
    GB: What do you study?
    STUDENT: Maths
    GB: Ah, Excellent. Maybe you could sort out the pensions crisis for us!
    Brown explodes into peals of what could roughly be described as laughter

    Can’t think of any jokes about post neo-classical endogenous growth theory offhand; indeed, the chances of finding anything remotely humorous about Prudence are on a par of finding rocking horse shit. In a nappy.

      … and then she said to him, “Is that a gun in your pocket or your neo-classical endgenous growth theory?”
      Nah, doesn’t work.

    The poor man is crippled. Us sons-of-the-manse are not brough up in huge dark dank draughty manses, in some god-forsaken arse-cleft of Scotland, by fathers dressed in black, and mothers in Sensible Dresses, to become happy party people.
    We know that life is Hard, and Serious, and that Frivolity is a waste of energy, which would be far better spent working, or reading an Improving Book.
    We’re all doomed.
    (Gordon “Serious” Broon’s father was in the parish two to the West of my father.)

    At least he is marginally better (marginally!) with jokes than Thatcher, who used to deliver her jokes as though she were reading them for the first time and had not the slightest idea which part was supposed to be amusing.
    I quite like the idea of a PM who isn’t all jokey and matey and televisually competent. I just wish it wasn’t Broon.
