I've just been out there and they are all wandering around asking for a book.
"Book, book, book".

Ahhh ha ha ha yeah I know, it was a bit wet but that's what you get for wandering about outside mucking out chicken shelters and dog poop in the rain.

Now for revenge I'll tell the joke about the library hen :D

A hen went into the local library, went up to the desk and said, "Book book book."
The librarian was a little taken aback, but she shrugged to herself and gave the hen three books to see what she would do with them. The hen took them and left.
The next day the hen returned and again said, "Book book book."
Again, the librarian gave the hen three books and the hen left with them.

This happened for several days, and each day the librarian became more curious. She decided to follow the hen to see what the she was doing with the books.
She followed the hen all the way out of town, and into the countryside. The hen lugged the books to a big pond, and stood by the edge of it saying, "Book book book."

A frog jumped onto an island in the middle of the pond, and the hen threw each of the three books at it.

As the books flew past the frog, it said, "Read it. Read it. Read it."

Ooh that's good ha ha ha.

There was an episode of Steptoe and Son where Albert was in bed with a crook back. He had Harold running about all over the place for him. Harold came back cold and tired after being out on the cart all day and then stopping at the butcher and the library to pick up something nice for Alberts' tea. Harold handed Albert a huge pile of books he'd picked out and Albert ripped through the pile flicking them back on the bed saying "Read it, Read it, Read it etc"
That was the episode where Harold waited in the pantry after finding his favourite licorice allsorts disappearing and the last bottle of beer, empty and in the bin.

Albert calls out to him in a weak pitiful voice and when there's no answer, he sneaks down stairs and into the kitchen. Harold is spying on him through the half moon shape cut out of the pantry door. Albert leaves the kitchen and goes back to bed and Harold grabs the rubbing liniment and follows him. He catches up with him in the bedroom and the old man has put himself back to bed and assumed the painful expression and moans of agony. Harold flicks the blankets back telling him he needs some liniment to stop him getting bed sores, whips Albert onto his stomach and starts slapping liniment all over his bum... which obviously, being a liquid, dribbles down to parts unmentioned. Albert leaps out of bed, his eyes bugging out on stalks and races off down the stairs and out to a half a wine barrel. There the programme ends with Albert, a hose up his nightgown yelling "eeeee me goulies" and Harold laughing fit to burst.

They were mean to each other but oh so funny! Albert gave as good as he got, so did Harold.

Good old, 'old' Brit humour..... they knew how to make you laugh without resorting to pie in the face slapstick.

Excellent!!!!!!! Thanks for that. Anyone on Broadband, if you want a smile in your day, check it out. Dial-up.... it'll probably take too long but your local library may have a DVD available to rent.
