End notes

Postby Enzo » Wed Mar 13, 2019 8:02 am

So I went to a funeral recently, and asked the widow if I might say a word. She said that would be OK. So I said, "Plethora".


She said "Thanks, that means a lot."

I liked that one as it was working on a few levels. Firstly, the expression 'say a word' and then just saying one word, that is funny on it's own. Then the play on the definition is just brilliant. :)

When I was maybe 10, I heard an ad for Chicken in the Rough, and I made up "Chicken in the rough is when you slice it badly". That was the earliest joke I remember writing. That works at a couple levels too.

I was not aware at the time, but the CITR restaurant chain has a chicken with a gold club as its logo.

Plethora = a lot


Chicken in the rough - a restaurant chain

When you slice it badly. Implies bad slicing results in rough cut chicken

BUT If you slice a chicken badly, it will wind up in the rough - as in out of bounds on a golf course.

When Gordon Strachan was the Celtic manager he was walking past a reporter after a game and the reporter said: "Gordon, can we have a quick word?" Strachan said : "Aye, velocity" and walked off.
