The Charlie Williams Jokebox
Doncaster Rovers legend and groundbreaking comedian Charlie Williams is one of the region's most warmly thought of characters. This joke box of a bygone age is a tribute to the times, to the wonderfully un-PC comedy, and our inspiration, Charlie Williams.
"The little lad had just come back from holiday with his mother and his new stepfather, and the teacher was asking him how he got on with his new parent. 'Was he kind to you?' she asked. 'Did he take you on outings?'
<Refresh for another classic gag.>
'Oh yes', said the little lad. 'Every morning he took me in a rowing boat a quarter of a mile out into this big lake and let me swim back.'
'A quarter of a mile? Wasnt that rather a long way for you to swim?'
'oh no, that was all right. It was getting out of the bag that was the trouble!'"
Note that we are using these jokes in fair use, if any are believed attributable to someone else or false, please contact us in the usual manner.
Also, some of these jokes may be politically incorrect today, please dont be offended by them, we use them as a good representation of the comedy of the day and not to offend. We also make no guarentees for the quality of them - they are old! They are taken from Charlie's biographies.
If you know of a joke that we might not have included send it to us here. More are being added every week.
