1950's jokes

Recommended Posts

If I found half a crown I'd.......

 

1) check there wasn't half a head in it

 

2) carefully remove some of the gem stones and diamonds etc.

 

3) I'd then get some 'make your own bracelet or necklace' bits and create a nice piece or two of 'costume' jewellery.

 

4) I'd then bide my time and eventually go to something like Flog it or Dickensons Real Deal with a small box of naff stuff AND the other pieces muddled in and be happily amazed at the worth of my car boot booty which I bought a  few years back for  50 p :wink:

 

As fot the chimney joke RC... I didn't really find that funny.  I thought you would like me to tell you :lol:   :P

The big chimney said to the small chimney "You are too young to smoke"................

What would you do if you found half a crown?

1. continue and it will stunt your growth and you will never be as tall as me.

2. Thank goodness as I have just lost sixpence and so have gained a florin.

 

I can be as daft as you, possibly dafter!. :D:wink:

If i found half a crown I would look for the other half, isn't that the 1950's joke?

Sorry that Dizzy didn't like the "Chimney" joke but wasn't that the way in those days?

We had a great sense of humour in the 50's. It got us through life. Plus the real comedians used to be on the stage or radio, not like these days when people who think they are comedians go on Forums.

Norman Evans, Ely Woods, Nat Jackley, Tommy handley, The Goons, Arthur Askey, Kenneth Horn, I could go on and on, all great acts either theatre, radio or early telly. I think Paul Whitehouse was a bit later PJ. :wink:

Did I say that? I suppose the answer is, if the cap fits!!!

I was just commenting on the fact that there was a lot of humour in the 50's. That is what got people by.

Health and safety and political correctness in the 1950's! I don't think so!!

 

Just bucket loads of hypocrisy - and an inability to address the facts of domestic violence, discrimination (signs in boarding house that declare No Irish, No Blacks , No dogs - saw some like that in the seventies , never mind the fifties) ,child abuse etc.

 

I find that an awful lot of people who rattle on about political correctness still find the use of words such as f*** and c*** unacceptable - strange that!
