It must be my twisted sense of thinking insomuch as, apart from the the intended humour which I fully grasp, I can't stop giggling at the fact a 16th century mason is called Doug. :lol:

Keep em coming WR!

Doug was a site foreman who spent half of the day complaining about the weather, too hot, too cold, too wet, too dry and the rest of the day complaining about the paperwork that the architect had generated. He was however a fantastic craftsman. When CAD first came available, I was telling him how it was very accurate. 'I can now draw to an accuracy of 1/10000 of a millimeter' he was laying paving stones 'that's no good to me, I have to be spot on' he replied has he tapped a large paving stone into place. The only way I could stop him moaning was to take him to the pub for lunch.

When you hover over heading on chrome it says "History ,Culture & Architecture " Surely telling Jokes is part of our culture?

A Yorkshire man goes into a goldsmith's to order a statuette of his favourite whippet.
"Eighteen carat?" asks the goldsmith , to which the Yorkshire man replied:
"Nay lad, gnawin' on a bone"
It used to be said that the statue of the Black Prince had been placed in City Square , near the station, pointing South to tell all the southerners who've just got off the train to b****r off back down south!

Tilly , your joke reminds me of a meal I had in the late 60’s. We had a few hours to kill in Calais waiting for our ferry. We had limited funds because the Labour Government in those days restricted your foreign currency to £50 for the whole holiday. Amazingly I found a nice restaurant offering steak and chips , a pudding and a glass of wine at a price we could afford.
After the enjoyable meal we left the restaurant by a different door leading to a different street. Only then did we realise that the establishment was a horse butcher with an in-house restaurant. Never knowingly eaten horse meat since.
