Island Jokes

I found myself near the Lake Isle of Innisfree this week, as made famous by the William Butler Yates, on Lough Gill near Sligo in Ireland, and it gave me the topic for this week’s puns and one liners, so here are some island jokes. As normal, they come with no guarantee of hilarity or originality…
