This is a local history site ,we were told but its also about culture.

to me a yorkshire mans culture is being able to tell a joke but not be offended by them also.

We have different views but what does "Joke of the week" have to do with Secret Leeds ??

Hi uncle mick I know this is nothing to do with Secret Leeds but at the time the site was very slow so this was started.Instead of waiting day after day with no posts i for one thought this was a good idea the blog had 181034 hits that cant be bad or can it.i dont want to fall out with anyone if its not acceptable to members then by all means take it down i for one will not be very happy at this outcome but then i am only one member amongst many.

It seems that this arument has began since i posted, in my opinion a quite inocent Hebrew gag. I probably know more about the Jewish way of life, having associated and worked with them for many years. I also would not want this thread to be blocked.

One of my best friends is Jewish he looks forward to a Jewish joke or two, i have nothing but praise for the Jewish community in Leeds.They arrived in Leeds after being persecuted in the country's they came from and helped make the city we know today.As for the Irish my family came from Ireland back in the days of the potato famine so i have nothing against them either and the few Irish i know love an Irish joke.If someone puts in a joke about a C or E Hunslet lad of which i am one i would not be putting in a complaint i for one dont see a problem.

I hope this one does not offend architects, quantity surveyors or Tudors.
As stated previously these cartoons were done for an architect's magazine and may not be amusing to anyone not familiar with the circumstances.
When I qualified, architects designed buildings and specified all the materials. As time passed, architects did less and less drawings and more and more paperwork. Contractors and suppliers were coerced into doing the drawings in return for them getting a contract. Architects spent more time writing than they did designing and drawing. This cartoon is a mixture of a Tudor building site and a modern architects office, hopefully you can now see some of the humour?
