A few corny jokes…

If I had to describe myself in one word it would be "not very good at following instructions".

At the last place that I worked, I had a reputation of telling corny jokes, for some reason.  When I left, there was some concern as to who might continue with these after I left, so I collected together some that I had told in the office, posted on Facebook, or tweeted, and gave them to my colleague, Mike, who would then be the guardian of them after I went, and could manage to keep the office in good spirits with a few pretty awful jokes.  I’m sure that he did a good job.


Now, I know that the internet is famous for giving people the opportunity to steal each others’ jokes, and some do get quite annoyed when their new material appears on twitter.  There is very little risk of that with these jokes, as most of them are old enough to have been written in cuneiform at some of the ancient ruins that I have tweeted about recently…  In fact, keep that thought of ancient ruins. It describes some of these very well…
