Something to make you laugh

yui

On 8 May 2010 an old man approached Downing Street. He spoke to the policeman standing guard and said, “I would like to go in and meet with Mr. Brown.”

The policeman looked at the man and said, “Sir, Mr. Brown is no longer prime minister and no longer resides here.”

The old man said, “Okay”, and walked away.

The following day, the same man approached Downing Street and said to the same policeman, “I would like to go in and meet with Mr. Brown.”

The policeman again told the man, “Sir, as I said yesterday, Mr. Brown is no longer prime minister and no longer resides here.”

The man thanked him and, again, just walked away.

The third day, the same man approached Downing Street and spoke to the very same policeman, saying “I would like to go in and meet with Mr. Brown.”

The policeman, understandably agitated at this point, looked at the man and said, “Sir, this is the third day in a row you have been here asking to speak to Mr. Brown. I’ve told you already that Mr. Brown is no longer prime minister and no longer resides here. Don’t you understand?”

The old man looked at the policeman and said, “Oh, I understand. I just love hearing it.”

The policeman snapped to attention, saluted, and said, “See you tomorrow, Sir.”

I couldn’t resist adding this joke. It reminded me of our trip to London last December. We decided to walk past Downing Street so my daughter could have a look through the gates. I told her that was the house our Prime Minister lived in, but that hopefully he’d be moving out very soon. One of the policemen at the gate heard what I said and smiled. Or should I say smirked.

His response was, “Indeed he will Madam, with a bit of luck!”
