Saturday 9: I Started a Joke

Here's my answers to this week's questions from the Saturday 9 Meme:

1. Tell us a joke that you think is funny. If you don't tell jokes tell us why.

A man dies, goes to Hell, and this demon's showing him around the underworld.

"You can spend the rest of eternity in one of two rooms," explains the demon, leading him into the first of the rooms.

The man looks around, and sees all the people inside, standing on their heads on a wooden floor.

"Okay, let's see the next room," he says, so the demon takes him into the second room, where people are standing, up to their ankles in sewage, drinking cups of tea.

The man thinks for a second and then says, "I prefer this room."

"Good choice," says the demon, handing the guy a cup of tea, and then starts to leave. On his way out he looks at his watch, and shouts out, "Okay, lads, tea breaks over. Back on your heads."

2. Where do you buy most of your clothes?

Clothes shops, though not one in particular.

3. Which famous person would you like to meet? Why?

One of the Jonas Brothers because then my niece would think I was cool.

4. What is your ultimate ambition?

To blog regularly.

5. Do you like to live in the area of your country or would you prefer something a little different?

I like living where I am, though I'd much prefer to be nearer my girlfriend.

6. Has a newspaper or television reporter ever interviewed you? If so, what were the circumstances and what did you think when you read or saw what you said?

A TV news reporter interviewed me about airport security the last time I visited America, but sadly I didn't make the news and my promising media career stalled.

7. What was the last CD/mp3 album that you purchased? How did you like it?

Embarrassingly it was the soundtrack to Glee, but I've not had time to listen to it properly yet.

8. Write down 5 songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you.

White Wine In The Sun - Tim Minchin
Someone Keeps Moving My Chair - They Might Be Giants
Friday I'm In Love - The Cure
Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas - Tori Amos
The Queen and The Soldier - Suzanne Vega

9. Do you or your partner usually begin intimacy?

My partner I guess, though occasionally I initiate an impromptu kiss and our heads invariably end up banging together.


A Girl Named Me said...

Ha! Your joke was good!

I'm glad I wasn't the only person to have an embarrassing last song purchased!


Anonymous said... the joke. And your heads banging together. LOL. Too funny. Glee you say? hmmm :) Have a great weekend :)

A Blog In The Rough said...

Better make that a better more realistic ambition :)

Listening to Glee? *snicker*

NurseExec said...

Great joke! Have a happy weekend :)

The Bumbles said...

I enjoyed your joke - especially the Brit twist with the tea bit ;0)

My favorite joke is as follows:

"Why did the monkey fall out of the tree?"...................................................................."Because he was dead."

Try the veal - I'll be here all week.

Jonas Brothers? Too funny.

Have a great Saturday!

Bud Weiser, WTIT said...

Good to see you back! Now back on your heads. LMAO!

Jodi said...

Good joke! I am terrible at telling jokes though.

I think we all want to blog more regularly. I somehow lost my groove. :(

I hope you and L get to live nearer to each other too! :)

Mark - I knew you trawl the sewers when looking for new music but some of the stuff you buy transcends even that. Words fail me.

Didn't I tell you that joke by the way?




An Eerie Tapestry said...

A Girl Named Me - Thanks for the comments. Wondering if Glee was really that embarrassing; yep, just read the other people's comments, apparently it was.

Thom - You have a great weekend too.

A Blog In The Rough - I can dream, can't I?

NurseExec - You have a happy weekend too.

The Bumbles - Great joke, though I wouldn't give up the blogging for comedic world fame just yet.

marites1034 - You have a good what's left of the weekend too

jo.attalife - Thanks for commenting.

I Am Harriet - Have a great Sunday.

Bud - Glad to be back. Have a great Sunday.

Jodi - Really hope I get to live nearer to L too

PlasMa - Yeah, I think my musical taste is irredeemable. Next stop, Heavy Metal.

Also, I first heard that joke when I was twelve from someone called Paul Anderson (who'd seen it on TV the night before), so if you did tell it to me, sadly you weren't the first, unless you're both a time traveller and a master of disguise.
