Very good. Had to read a few of them back to myself in a Glaswegian accent to get it though!

I always liked this one:

Guys goes into a bakery and says 'is that a doughnut or a meringue?'

Baker replies, 'no, you're right - it's a doughnut'.

abchandler, the fair is the name given by Glaswegians to the Holiday in September (it is September isn't it?) that most of the manual workers get off on holiday.
