That's no Eurotwit humor. That's Britwit humour. Or Cocknwit humour. Whatever. Nuff said, yeah?

LOL Moiraine!!

Yep, that's an extremely localised version of Twittish humour Fred, so you got one past me after all... I'm stumped.

Please explain the joke - obviously a few of us need a little help getting it.

Part of the problem is that their is a visual aspect to the joke that, for obvious reasons, people can't see. [img]smile.gif[/img]

And you would have to know what the phrase 'giving it all that' means.

Can you tell me if you get the joke here?

A crab walks into a pub and says to the barman 'can I have a large scotch and a pint of lager?'

The barman replies: 'I'm not serving you any more!'

The crab says 'why not?'

And the barman replies: 'because everytime you come in here you give it all 'that'!



Everyone in my pub thinks it's hilarious.
WHAT THE HELL IS THAT ALL ABOUT
