Bernard Manning

I read that Bernard Manning has died. He upset a lot of people with his humour, but I liked him. The ruder/crasser the funnier. I don't dwell on political correctness. If it makes you laugh, then laugh. If it doesn't, then ignore it, and let other people have fun. Here are a few of his jokes supplied by Daily Telegraph readers:

I see they've found Donald Campbells body- it came out of a tap in Huddersfield!

At the Embassy club in the 1980s: "We've got some boys from the Falklands in the audience tonight, give them a big round of applause!" When the clapping had died down, "they're Argentinian!"

There's a blind guy waiting at the traffic lights, when his guide dog pees on his leg. The man reaches into his pocket and gives the dog a biscuit. A man standing nearby says: "That's wonderful- the dog peed on you, but you still gave him a biscuit."
"Yeah, well I was just trying to find out where his mouth is so I can kick him in the bollocks!"

I don't really like Bernard Manning, I think he's a t**t but I suppose the dog joke is worth a snigger!:)

He just always looked like he needed a good bath if you ask me hence why I couldn't watch him.

I can't pretend I liked him (as a person) much, but I think some of the jokes I have used were purported to have been his!

Each to their own, all. I have his politically incorrect humour!

Sometimes people are sooooo bloody awful it's funny. I saw a documentary on him and he was a really odd person - not all bad. It was some time before I could banish the vision of him in his y fronts from my mind. RIP

I do agree with you actually John.
These people who bang on about everything having to be inoffensive to everyone in any way,does my head in. It all gets so petty doesn't it? According to them, shouldn't you be calling yourself enabled rather than disabled?!!
