ABOUT ME

My passion is photography but it is a work in progress.

DRECHT. (03/04/16)

It’s a miserable start to the day, foggy, raining but warm.
I’ll share a mildly amusing joke I received.
Dithery and the Queen.
, "Your Majesty, how do you run Buckingham Palace so efficiently? Is there any advice you can give to me now that my government is falling to pieces?"
"Well," said the Queen, "the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people."
Dave frowned, and asked, "But how do I know the people around me are intelligent?"
The Queen took a sip of tea. "Oh, that's easy; you just ask them to prove their intelligence by answering a simple riddle." She rang a tiny hand bell and asked the footman. "Please find Nigel Farage and send him here, would you?"
After a little while Nigel walked into the room and said, "Yes, Your Majesty?"
The Queen smiled and said, "Answer me this please Nigel, your mother and father have a child. It's not your brother and it's not your sister. Who is it?"
Without pausing for a moment, Nigel replied, "That would be me." "Yes! Very good," said the Queen.
When Dave got home that evening, he called George at number 11, and asked him the same question. "George, answer this for me..'Your mother and your father have a child. It's not your brother and it's not your sister. Who is it?"
"I'm not sure," said George "Let me get back to you on that one...."
He went to his advisors and asked them all, but nobody could give him an answer. Finally, he ran into Michael Gove. George said to him, "Michael, can you answer this for me? Your mother and father have a child and it's not your brother or your sister. Who is it?"
Michael answered immediately, "That's easy, it's me!"
George smiled, and said, “ Thanks, Michael.”
He called next door and said to Dave. “I did some research and I have the answer to that riddle and do you know what?…… It's Michael Gove."
Dave got up, walked over to George, and angrily yelled at him, "No, you fool, can't you answer even the simplest questions? The answer is obvious…………..It’s Nigel Farage.”
After that disaster I’ll leave you with some foggy photos.

  1. Lol. There's a version of that joke here with Canadian politicians, but it's one that stands the test of time and place. The shroud of fog looks beautiful in the photos, though it can be depressing. We get very little fog here in PEI which is a surprise to me.

  5. I like the double punchline. The first is more or less expected but not the second.

  9. The misty forests make good atmospheric photos. Can't make my mind up about #2, real or Photoshopped? Can't always tell easily these days.

    This from 'Elizabeth Windsor' (take the name with a pinch of salt) on Twitter :
    Mr Cameron, when you said "we're all in this together" one wasn't aware you were talking about an offshore tax haven? #Awkward

  11. Oh Adrian how wonderful to have your wit and foggy photos at my breakfast table. I'm still laughing and admiring. I can't remember the last time I was in fog (as opposed to in a fog).
