They say that adversity brings the best out in people. Well, I guess I am lucky in having a lot of friends, both long-standing and online, who have a sense of humour. So after we went into lockdown on March 23rd 2020, many of them started sharing that humour with me. Some of it is light, some a bit dark, and some just plain daft. But it all brightens the long days in isolation.
I started sharing the best one or two every day, and was rewarded with a load of shares back. Then, whilst clearing-out a cupboard, I came across a set of old books I have had since the ‘sixties, containing omnibus collections of random jokes. They provided the inspiration for starting this blog, compiled from a contemporary selection of the best from every day’s input from my friends during this lockdown. It will run for as long as we need it.
