Saturday Satire : Cornishmen

Two men were sitting next to each other at a bar. After a while, one guy looks at the other and says, 'Ere my ansum you sound like you do come from Cornwall?'

The other guy responds proudly, 'Yes I do my luvver, Cornish and proud of it!'

The first guy says, 'Well oggee, oggee, oggee! So am I! A proud man of Cornwall meself. And where about from Cornwall do ee come from ?'

The other guy answers, 'I'm from Camborne, I am.'

The first guy responds, 'So be I!'

'Oh my Gar! And where abouts did you live then ?'

The other guy says, 'Twas rare yo, ansum place, called Dolcoath Avenue'

The first guy says, 'Well I'll be blawed! Tes a small world. Me too yo! Me too! And what school did ee go to then?'

The other guy answers, 'Well now, I went to Camborne school, of course.'

The first guy gets really excited and says, 'Well, bless my soul! And I did! So when did you leave'?

The other guy answers, 'Well, now, let's see. I left in 1964, went to work at Holmans.'

The first guy exclaims, 'Would you b'lieve that! Fancy us being in the same bar tonight! Can you believe it? I left Camborne school in 1964 an went to work at Holman's too!'

About this time, Demelza walks into the bar, sits down and orders a beer.

Brian, the bartender, walks over to Demelza, shaking his head and mutters, 'It's going to be a long night tonight.'

Demelza asks, 'Why do you say that, Brian'?

'The Trelawney twins are p****d again.'


One of SOH's favourite sayings is that when Camborne wants to double it's IQ they advertise for a man to move there from Redruth...now I'm not saying that Camborne people are dim, but this joke that Zeltus sent made me laugh at the subject. Its nice to be able to poke fun at Kernow :-)
