Mutual Support

Early 20th century, a newlywed couple celebrates their wedding night at a hotel. In the morning, the young man chivalrously pricks his finger with his pen knife and smears some blood on the bedsheet.

50 happy years later, the couple returns to the hotel to celebrate their anniversary. And in the morning, the woman can finally return the favour. She blows her nose on the bedsheet.

    I had to think about it for a moment. I wish I hadn’t.

    Body fluids. U-uulp. And I will NOT ask what your twitter conversation is about!

    Hopefully she did not have a severe sinus infection.

    Birger, you mean the “You have nipples and the nozzle just keeps bending” one?

    Or was there a worse sounding one that I missed?

    The joke has been successfully inserted into the Hong Kong construction industry, Martin, and is being circulated widely as we speak.

    John, I was making a lewd comment on something the lady said about her troublesome bicycle tyre. A link between two dimensions of pump nozzle is called nippel in Swedish, a loan from English I believe.

    Glad you like the joke! I think it’s rather elegant. I didn’t make it up.

    Yes, you need to connect your nozzle to the nipple before you can start pumping.

    Am I making this better or worse?

    Speaking of “pumping”…
    “Inflatable, bouncy full-scale Stonehenge”

    I seriously need one too! It’d go great in front of our little 80’s house!
