Saturday (I don't want to blog about politics) night

Have you ever told a joke only to have it go completely over someones head? I think we've all done it in the past; been left standing there with a sheepish grin on our faces while the person who should be splitting their side laughing is staring at you like you are a bit simple.

Well I had the biggest 'Wooosh! FAIL' that I've ever witnessed yesterday.

Someone told a joke on Twitter - "I lost my thesaurus. I can't describe how I feel about it". I don't remember who it was to give them a mention, so if you are reading this, let me know in the comments.

Anyway, I was walking through one of the offices at work yesterday when I passed my pal. I figured this joke was just his sense of humour so decided to tell it.

"I lost my thesaurus", I said.

He could see in my face that there was a joke coming, so in a dead sincere voice he said, "Oh, no way!"

"Really", I said. "I can't describe how I feel about it".

Well he laughed but a girl who works on the desk next to him asked me if I was being serious. She said I was being a bit dramatic about a thesaurus. I told her it was a joke but she didn't seem convinced. She looked at me like I was a right loon so I buggered off sharpish.

Later in the day I came to my desk and there was a little pocket thesaurus on it. I was a bit baffled to say the least. I figured it must be my pal having a laugh, but two minutes later the lass who had overheard the joke came in and said that the thesaurus was hers but she never uses it, so I was welcome to have it to replace the one I had lost.

I managed to compose myself long enough to thank her sincerely for her kindness, then she went. I haven't laughed so hard in a very long time. My ribs were sore.

Enjoy your Saturday :-)
