I thought I'd post a bigger picture of my new avatar.

It's a picture from inside my old Crack-a-Joke Book, drawn by a Mr Graeme Garden! I'd forgotten all about the book until I found it when I was sorting out to move in the summer. I've had it for a hundred years and my mum had written my name in it, so I must have taken it to school at some point. It's really great and full of jokes circa 1978, which is probably about as old as all the rest of my jokes! 

I was slightly disappointed that it didn't contain the 'scone' joke (What's the fastest cake in the world? Scone). I was sure it did, but it must have been another book. I was always very confused by this joke when I was little because I pronounce scone the same way Bill does in Bunfight (to rhyme with stone) and so it made no sense. It wasn't until I was 10 or 11 that I learnt that other people pronounce it (wrongly! ) 'skon' and I finally understood the joke!

It can take a while, but I get there in the end.

Reading about scones & their various pronunciations reminds me of when I was travelling around the U.K. years ago. I was on the beautiful Pullman train (which as you would know is very posh) going from Folkestone back to London. They were serving afternoon tea and the waiter asked "Would you care for a scone, madam ?" I couldn't help myself and immediately replied "It's skon."  He didn't miss a beat and said "Is it?" See, 12,000 miles from home and I was doing Goodies routines. It occurred to me later that this guy was only young and had probably never seen the Goodies.
