    I do like a good larf!

    A farmer named Bill was overseeing his herd in a remote pasture in Norfolk when suddenly a brand-new BMW advanced toward him out of a cloud of dust.

    The driver, a young man in a Armani suit, Gucci shoes, RayBan sunglasses and YSL tie, leaned out the window and asked the farmer, "If I tell you exactly how many cows and calves you have in your herd, Will you give me a calf?"

    Bill looked at the man, obviously a yuppie, then looked at his peacefully grazing herd and calmly answered, "Why not?"

    The yuppie parked his car, whipped out his Dell notebook computer, connected it to his Cingular RAZR V3 cell phone, and surfed to a NASApage on the Internet, where he called up a GPS satellite to get an exact fix on his location which he then fed to another NASA satellite that scanned the area in an ultra-high-resolution photo.

    The young man then opened the digital photo in Adobe Photoshop and exported it to an image processing facility in Hamburg .

    Within seconds, he received an email on his Palm Pilot that the image had been processed and the data stored. He then accessed an MS-SQL database through an ODBC connected Excel spreadsheet with email on his Blackberry and, after a few minutes, received a response.

    Finally, he printed out a full-color, 150-page report on his hi-tech, miniaturized HP LaserJet printer, turned to the farmer and said, "You have exactly 1,586 cows and calves."

    "I guess you can take one of my calves," said Bill.

    He watched the young man select one of the animals and looked on with amusement as the young man stuffed it into the boot of his car.

    Then Bill said to the young man, "If I can tell you exactly what your business is, will you give me back my calf?"

    The young man thought about it for a second and then said, "Okay, why not?"

    "You're a political adviser to the Westminster Government", said Bill.

    "Wow! That's correct," said the yuppie, "but how on earth did you guess that?"

    "No guessing required." answered the farmer. "You showed up here even though nobody called you; you want to get paid for an answer I already knew, to a question I never asked. You used millions of pounds worth of equipment trying to show me how much smarter than me you are; and you don't know a thing about how working people make a living - or about cows, for that matter. This is a herd of sheep. ....

    Now give me back my dog.

    2) Tim Vine: "Crime in multi-storey car parks. That is wrong on so many different levels."

    3) Hannibal Buress: "People say 'I'm taking it one day at a time'. You know what? So is everybody. That's how time works."

    4) Tim Key: "Drive-Thru McDonalds was more expensive than I thought... once you've hired the car..."

    5) Matt Kirshen: "I was playing chess with my friend and he said, 'Let's make this interesting'. So we stopped playing chess."

    6) Sarah Millican: "My mother told me, you don't have to put anything in your mouth you don't want to. Then she made me eat broccoli, which felt like double standards."

    7) Alan Sharp: "I was in a band which we called The Prevention, because we hoped people would say we were better than The Cure."

    8) Mark Watson: "Someone asked me recently - what would I rather give up, food or sex. Neither! I'm not falling for that one again, wife."

    9) Andrew Lawrence: "I admire these phone hackers. I think they have a lot of patience. I can't even be bothered to check my OWN voicemails."

    10) DeAnne Smith: "My friend died doing what he loved ... Heroin."

    Veteran entertainer Paul Daniels won the wooden spoon for the worst joke of the festival.

    He won the dubious honour for his gag: "I said to a fella 'Is there a B&Q in Henley?' He said 'No, there's an H, an E, an N an L and a Y'."
    Maybe I'm strange, but I thought the best joke was the one that won the wooden spoon!

    My wife and I were happy for twenty years. Then we met.

    I'll tell ya, my wife and I, we don't think alike. She donates money to
    the homeless and I donate money to the topless!

    One night I came home. I figured, I'll play it
    cool. Let my wife make the first move. She went to Florida.

    I asked my old man if I could go ice skating on the lake. He told me,
    "Wait til it gets warmer."

    My doctor told me to watch my drinking. Now I drink in front of a
    mirror. I drink too much. Way too much. My doctor drew blood. He ran a tab.

    When I was born the doctor came out to the waiting room and said to my
    father, "I'm very sorry. We did everything we could ... but he pulled

    I come from a stupid family. During the Civil War my great uncle fought
    for the west!

    My father was stupid. He worked in a bank and they caught him stealing pens.

    My mother had morning sickness after I was born.

    My mother never breast fed me. She told me that she only liked me as a

    My father carries around the picture of the kid who came with his wallet.

    When I played in the sandbox the cat kept covering me up.

    I could tell that my parents hated me. My bath toys were a toaster and a

    One year they wanted to make me poster boy ... for birth control.

    I remember the time I was kidnapped and they sent back a piece of my
    finger to my father. He said he wanted more proof.

    My uncle's dying wish was to have me sitting on his lap. He was in the
    electric chair.

    A hooker once told me she had a headache.

    It's tough to stay married. My wife kisses the dog on the lips, yet she
    won't drink from my glass!

    My wife isn't very bright. The other day she was at the store, and just
    as she was heading for our car, someone stole it! I said, "Did you see
    the guy that did it?" She said, "No, but I got the license plate."

    Last night my wife met me at the front door. She was wearing a sexy
    negligee. The only trouble was, she was coming home.

    A girl phoned me and said, "Come on over. There's nobody home." I went
    over. Nobody was home!
