Jousting. What a Brummie asks a bee.
Jousting. What a Brummie asks a bee.

These series of puns and one-liners are accent jokes, and specifically, British accent jokes, so they may not travel so well beyond that.  If you find yourself scratching your head wondering why it should be funny, then try it in the relevant accent.  If that doesn’t work, comment below and I will try to explain.  Of course, it might just be the normal caveat that the jokes aren’t that funny, or original….

    1. Sure. There’s an old saying that “The female of the species is more deadly than the male”. It was a Rudyard Kipling poem in 1911, and the band Space wrote a song in the 1990s with that title.

      Dudley is a town in the West Midlands, in an area called the Black Country, named because of the smoke and soot in the area caused by all of the iron foundries and other factories during the Industrial Revolution.

      So, someone who sounds like they are from Dudley will have a Black Country accent, and then the pun is on deadly and Dudley.

      Hope that helps!
