Two Glaswegians, Archie and Jimmy, are sitting in the pub discussing
Jimmy's forthcoming wedding.

"Och, it's all goin' pure brilliant," says Jimmy. "A've got everythin'
organised awready, the fluers, the church, the caurs, the reception, the rings, the minister, even ma stag night".

Archie nods approvingly.

"I've even bought a kilt to be married in!" continues Jimmy.

"A kilt?" exclaims Archie, "That's magic, you'll look pure smart in that. Whit's the tartan?"

"Och," says Jimmy, "A'd imagine she'll be in white"

I don't type Scottish and me accent is woeful but that's a great joke! laugh I'd love to hear Billy Connolly tell that. I'll be seeing him in March when he tours Oz! YAY! Take pity on my friends when I try to tell that joke with the accent and have it make sense! wink

Of course, you know what's worn under the kilt, don't you?

Nothing...............it's all in perfect working order.

Billy Connolly always maintains that he doesn't tell jokes...but I too would relish the occasion to hear it. Craig Ferguson would be a close second.

Isn't Billy fabulous? I love it when he cracks up himself. He can take a 20 second anecdote and stretch it into a 5 minute story which has everyone crying with laughter. Robin Williams is amazing in a different way. You can throw an obscure subject at him and he'll weave a fuuny story from it with that lightning fast wit. His brain must be like an Aston Marton's engine! Both of them brilliant. I can't wait to see Billy. Now this Craig Ferguson person isn't anyone I've heard of before but I think I'll explore youtube and see if there is anything there featuring him. smile Cheers for the tip!

Craig Ferguson is a Glaswegian who's become a US citizen and a late show host. He's had a few film roles and done some standup.

Just saw a TV appearance of Billy on Craig's show in December. Try it.
