Seriously this is not a joke. Someone badly hurt by pothole and another had severe damage to his car. Potholes down here.....prob everywhere.....have become a real safety issue. A local person is in hospital with serious injuries after his car went over the edge and Imto the sea.
Had a friend who alway made fun of people's injuries, illnesses and misfortunes. When he went too far I had a quiet word.
Let's not focus on targeting where people come from either..not nice or wanted
Good to keep this thread going I think but let's do it for FUN.
The police where called to another murder in the corn field ,the detective turned to his team and said " I think we are looking for a cereal killer here . ( sorry it's the only gardening joke I know )
Brumbul great jokes ,loved the one with the laughing puppy in (I am blond ) haaa!!!
The thread's called Gardening Jokes
Arrrrrr dove if it brings a smilie to peoples faces does it really matter ?
Jokes are often funny to some people but are made at the expense of others - it's good to laugh with people, not at them - that is why one person continually making jokes about the places that some other posters live can be tedious, and can lead to some people feeling that they are being targeted.
'They are jokes, nothing more, nothing less' was the excuse Bernard Manning and those of his ilk used when targeting various groups.
Now that Brumbull knows that some of his jokes are upsetting people, I'm sure he'll try to avoid posting that type of joke - if he continues then it's clear that he either intends to upset people, or doesn't give a damn.
well I didn't take offence about being blond haaaa at all .
anyway enough said life is too short ....here is another joke; I get so excited about gardening I wet my PLANTS.
Every one has these on their faces....... TULIPS
knock knock. Whose there ?? Lettuce
lettuce who ??
lettuce in It's cold outside.
Well said Dove and Verd. I have friends and relatives who send me very funny stuff over the internet. I pass them on, but not if there is the slightest whiff of politics, religion, gender, or is at the expense of particular groups. If it offends , then it can't be a joke, can it.
Far nicer to be nice isnt it?
Did you get my hints about a thread on alpines ?
Yes, and am still mulling... I really am going to get a new phone soon which will enable me to do pictures. Sadly only this morning my plans to build an outside alpine bed have crashed as my contractor has been told to give up heavy lifting, as he has a seriously bad back! I feel very sorry for him because he is a genuine guy and a good worker. I will put this all on hold for now while I think of plan B.
Wood green ,wonder boy ,So your friends and relatives send you jokes also that might offend , really I think everyone is making too much of this : I am from Liverpool ( yes a scouser) and believe me I have heard the lot . But am I offended Narrrr !!! we are.made of stern stuff and can take a joke , if you took all the politics , religion, race, colour of hair , weight,height, etc etc there wouldn't be many jokes around now I must admit I cringe at rude jokes . this thread has made me think about being on this forum.i think it really isn't for me , I thought it was , you should take a chill pill . & I' sign off now , it was great while it lasted bye Annie

happy gardening to you all . Annie

You'll recall that a while back, when things got a bit unpleasant, we started a 'no bickering' policy on the forum. That policy still stands. This thread, started with the purpose of sharing some jokes, is becoming a bit bad-tempered in tone, so we will delete it if this continues.
Do share jokes by all means, but please bear our forum code of conduct in mind before doing so: http://www.gardenersworld.com/forum/codeofconduct.aspx
