OT - best joke i have heard in a while

An Englishman, a Frenchman, a Spaniard and a German are all standing watching a street performer juggle.

The juggler notices that the four gentlemen have a very poor view, so he stands up on a large wooden box and calls out, "Can you all see me now?"

"Yes." "Oui." "Sí." "Ja.",

Thus illustrating the impressive French, German, and Spanish education systems.

I have one...

Snow White, Tom Thumb and Keith Chegwin are sitting in a pub with their mates.

Snow White says, "There's no doubt about it, I'm the most beautiful person in the land."

Tom Thumb says, "There's no doubt about it, I'm the smallest person in the land."

Keith Chegwin says, "There's no doubt about it, I'm the least funny person in the land."

Their mates tell them to prove it by going to the magic all-knowing mirror, and the three head off.

A few minutes later, the door of the pub bursts open and Snow White runs in and says, "It's official... I'm the most beautiful person in the land!"

Shortly afterwards, the door again bursts open and Tom Thumb runs in and shouts, "It's official... I'm the smallest person in the land!"

Five minutes later, the door gets kicked in and an irate Keith Chegwin storms in and bellows, "Who the hell is blawson?"



PS - this is in keeping with the (vaguely) humorous thread and is no way a personal attack on blawson. But if it any way it sails close to FT rules, mods please delete.
