    Reminds me of when I referred to our dog as the hound, only to be indignantly corrected by my six year old daughter: "She's not a hound - she's a mutt."

    Some enterprising crooks set up an account in the name of Finland Revenue and paid in all the cheques.

    One of George Gissings' books had a lass called Pennyloaf as a bit of a star.

    A mate and me were massive "Man from Uncle" fans. He had a speech problem so their enemy were from Frush. He had a "Showed Roaster" for his gun. I drew a picture of a "Nancy Tank".

    The youngest granddaughter told us that daddy has just bought a flat car. He has a Tipo.

    Many years before I eventually got a degree in geography, I used to think the North pole was in Poland. On cold days my parents could never understand why I kept asking whether it was as cold as Poland.

    I loved merrangs as a child but when I read in books about people eating merringoos, I had no idea what they were.

    I could never understand how in school assembly, having chanted 'our father Whitchart, in heaven' was followed by 'Hallowed be thy name'. What was his name, Witchart or Hallowed? Or Harold?

    Reading today’s jokes thread reminded me of a misunderstanding I had as a child when one day I excitedly turned on the television to watch Monty Pythons Flying Circus thinking I was going to watch a real Circus. I’ve never really thought about it until now, but maybe that disappointment as child is the reason why until this day I still can’t stand Monty Python.
