Liberals are nothing more than fence-sitters who think they have all of the answers but live in a world where they talk about trivialities, like yourself, to keep themselves in the limelight but really achieve nothing.

Don't you have a better cause to champion? The point is, the guy made a stupid joke but there are more serious things in the World to worry about.

I think it was Dave Allen who said the joke about Irish jokes, people in the UK tell stories about the daft Irish people, people in the Ireland tell stories about the daft Dublin people, people in the Dublin tell stories about the daft McKelvey Ave people and people in the McKelvey Ave tell stories about the daft people at number 32!!

In mainland Europe they tell Belgian jokes..

Apparently the people from my country shag sheep and we're all called Taff's, although Taff is the river in Cardiff and I'm certainly not from cardiff.

One thing we can do which perhaps North American's are not so good at is to e able to laugh at ourselves.



Oh and wasn't fag originally an English public school thing, the new boy allocated to one of the senior boys to become his servant for the first year..

My favourite photo though is taken outside the "Condom Shack"!!!

Canadians do have humour- just different!

An Israeli doctor said, 'Medicine in my country is so advanced, we can take a kidney out of one person, put it in another, and have him looking for work in six weeks'.

A German doctor said, 'That's nothing! In Germany , we can take a lung out of one person, put it in another, and have him looking for work in four weeks'.

A Russian doctor said, 'In my country medicine is so advanced, we can take half a heart from one person, put it in another, and have them both looking for work in two weeks'.

The English doctor, not to be outdone, said 'Hah!. We can take two a***holes out of Scotland , put them in 10 & 11 Downing Street and have half the country looking for work within twenty-four hours'.

No offence intended before you all start!!! Just political humour
