I'm a much better racounteuse. I suck at joke telling, especially with Klondike accents.

    Never mind.

    Great joke telling in that beautifully accented voice and strong emphasis, not a flat voice like mine. I thought you told it perfectly, it made me laugh, thank you.
    I feel sorry for the old miner or the girl he had, if any, I don't know which.

    Keep 'em coming. In fact, perhaps a chapter reading a week of favorite books like Librivox. That voice is heavenly.

    Go ON! 8)

    Never mind.

    Boo!

    But we love the flat vowels of the Americans, even if they would never say it out loud.

    It just sounds so...cool.

    Yay! I am not indifferent, you see. I am a happy plebe. :)

    Erm...how do I break it to him, people?

    That's the one and only joke I can tell well.

    The other ones I got from "Dirty Joke Books" in the 80s, at garage sales here in the States.

    Oh, I can do Helen Keller jokes, but they're visual.

    Boom tish!

    That voice is heavenly.

    Mwah!

    Cheers,

  • You want to hear me??
    A four Word prediction on my Blog.

    As I type this I think, gee, I should have talked to Victoria first but, but, it's the big day, I'm sorry. My team is heavily on my mind replacing you only on this day and then only for a few hours, forgive me.

    Ooohhhh, Baby!! Find that joke book and start reading! There's nothing like dirty jokes told with an English accent!!!!

    Dude, it was joke book aimed at kids during the 80's.

    Dirty Joke example:

    "Wanna hear a dirty joke?"
    "Sure!"
    "A pig rolling in mud."
    "Hmm"


    Anyway, as you say, you have bigger fish to fry tonight, Paul!

    GO STEELERS!!!!!! I'm taking the under-over!

    P.S.: I'll post a Super Bowl post later, after the game.

    Last thing we need today, is a Super Bowl thread in real-time. WAAAAAAY too nerve-wracking.

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • Lovely accent. I don't tell jokes well at all, either. My tendency is towards minimalism - less is more, right? So I usually just rush to the punch line and get a so what? reaction. Sigh.

  • Lovely accent.

    That's because you're not British, Pete!

    Otherwise, it would put your back up, as it often does with others.

    OTOH, some men think it's dead sexy, even if they won't ever say it publicly. *g*

    It's all in the wrists. ;)

    I had rather hoped to start a meme with this post, you know -- Glenn Reynolds or Ann Althouse telling a favourite joke of theirs in a podcast thingie.

    But no go, so far. ;)

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • You've got potential, kid! You might want to look for some new material...and maybe stay away from "old prospector" accents until you can master Walter Brennan. Stay with what you know well.
    Here's a start...
    A crowd had gathered to stone a woman for adultery, when Jesus appeared and simply bent down on His haunches and said nothing. The people watched and waited. After a long while He started to draw a circle in the dirt...then He said, "Let he among you who is without sin cast the first stone." One by one, the people in the mob dropped their stones and started to walk away....Just then, a huge rock came from the back of the crowd, striking the woman right between the eyes, with the force sending her to the ground. Jesus looked back in the direction from which the stone came and at said, "Oh, Ma!!!!"

    OK...I've had it! Now how much do I owe you? My back's up---in a good way! I could listen to your voice for quite a long time!
