Humour 4

A Yorkshireman's wife dies and the widower decides that her headstone should have the words "she were thine" engraved on it.
He calls the stone mason, who assures him that the headstone will be ready a few days after the funeral.
True to his word the stone mason calls the widower to say that the headstone is ready and would he like to come and have a look.
When the widower gets there he takes one look at the stone to see that it's been engraved "she were thin".
He explodes - bloomin 'ell man, you've left the "e" out, you've left the bloomin "e" out!
The stone mason apologises and assures the poor widower that it will be rectified the following morning.
Next day comes and the widower returns to the stone mason - "There you go sir, I've put the "e" on the stone for you".
The widower looks at the stone and then reads out aloud - "E, she were thin".

Thine means 'yours'. So he gets a headstone made with 'she was yours' on it? Yeah, makes sense. Up to your usual standard Mike.

There was this guy who went to the dentist to get a tooth pulled.

First off the dentist said, "I'll give you a shot to numb your jaw."

But the guy said, "No, please don't do that, I'm afraid of needles."

The dentist said, "OK, I'll get out the gas to put you to sleep."

However the guy said, "Nope, I'm allergic to the gas."

So the dentist said, "Just a minute, I'll go look for something else."

After a while he came back with a couple of pills.

The guy asked, "What kind of pills are those?"

The dentist said, "Viagra."

The guy said, "WHAT! Why these?"

The dentist said, "They won't help the pain, but they'll give you something to hang on to while I pull your damn tooth."

Not that wrong - it's usually 9 months to a year to allow the soil to settle (but can be longer for number of reasons).

Yes, much more right than not right; it's perfectly reasonable to extrapolate from personal experience . More than a year is not unusual.
Hope it's a nice one when it's put in place.

I'll edit me as well, by bolding.
Usually but not always e.g. if there is already a concrete slab in place for the headstone to rest on.

I don't get it, is it a play on words or is the joke that the mason was thick enough to put the E in the wrong place? :?:oops:

It's a joke about Yorkshire folk starting sentences with Ee.
As in :
Ee lass , tha fancy a bit o'laking?
or
Ee by gum.
or
Ee ..... (followed by the rest of the sentence)

It falls down because 'thine' means 'yours' so it doesn't make any sense and so the thread has diversified into a discussion about the headstone.

Aah, okay thanks - I am a Londoner born and bred so that explains why I didn't get it.

Still not funny though :w00t:
