The Fringe

Postby VeritasVincit » Tue Aug 13, 2019 2:07 pm

I admit that I’m old with an old fashioned sense of humour, but these were listed in a newspaper as the ten best jokes at the Edinburgh Fringe.

My new boyfriend told me he’s got my face as his wallpaper, which I thought was cute until I saw his lounge.

Actors who can cure my lisp? I’m pretty sure Anne Hathaway, but I’m going to ask Colin Firth.

I suppose lesbian sex is a bit like cricket, in that it goes on for ever and there are a lot of men watching it at home, alone, on the internet.

My mum said she’s turning my room into a study. I doubt it, unless she’s doing a PhD on Coronation Street and Echo Falls rosé.

When applying for a job as an estate agent, the interviewer worried that my CV was a bit small. I said actually it’s really cosy and I was immediately hired

Do you reckon the band Chic ever found any takers for that free cow they were always trying to get rid of

The other kids all called me “token” growing up. At least that’s what they put at the top of my Christmas cards. Sure, there was a space between the “to” and the “ken” but the point remains the same

My auntie Barbara won’t buy free-range chickens because she says you don’t know where they’ve been

Cat flaps are for pussies.

I suppose you had to be there.

Very surprised there were none of the expected Brexit/Trump material.

I avoided the Fringe but saw Alistair Campbell's unfunny daughter (who has Ray Parlour vibes about her) was getting exposure there for being unfunny and boorish.

A Ray Parlour vibe?

Does that involve telling the same Arsene Wenger story over and over...

One that made me chuckle

I can understand a woman choosing to become a man
Makes sense, remember when Gareth Bale moved from Spurs to Real Madrid for more money

She looks like a Ray Parlour/Charlie Dimmock hybrid!

The mobile ringing in the dressing room is a classic. Like the Micky Quinn ghost story

What do y' call an actor who plays a strong mong? Robert Downsey Jr. This was a joke at ED Fringe.

This one was voted as the best joke at the Fringe.

I had a fringe when I was a child.
