Sense of humour - where is it?

Sense of humour - where is it?

Post by Warren Hal » Sun, 04 Aug 1996 04:00:00


I notice that the discussion has been somewhat vitriolic of late.

Recently I was accused in an email of hating South Africans and having the sick dream
that New Zealanders were superior.

What has happened to the sense of humour in this NG?

For the record my emailed reply was:

Hey, Koos is a forward (*** I think he said)
I am a back (centre - and therefore it goes without saying - much better
with ***s) ;-)
What more is there to say.

PS. Do not infer that Koos made the accusation.  He did not.
The fatties in the front row know we like them really. Honestly. Truly.

Couldn't agree more - the trouble is just as you say there is no sense of
humour.

However, there are quite a few contributors who mistake the type of
repartee you might hear in a pub at closing time ("I told him what 'e was -

to the exclusion of any contribution to the Rugby discussion.

My views are at least as bigoted as the next man's (or woman's - sorry Kiwi
Coll) but I respect the same bias in others

>>>  I agree with Warren, there's too much venom flying around in this

group. This joke was told to me by fellow Welshman. 'A Frenchman,
Italian and Welshman were discussing rugby but the subject somehow
turned to *** matters. The Frenchman boasted "Ah make love to ma
femme and she float 10 centimetres above zee bed." The Italian went
further with "Ha. I make-a love to my girl and she float a metre above
the bed." And Dai justs laughs."That's nothing. I make love to the wife
and then I wipe my willie on the curtains and she hits the roof."

And its a true story too.
