Who's Joke is This? 1


I went down the local ice-cream shop today, and I said, "I want to buy an ice-cream" The man said, "Hundreds & thousands?" I said, "We'll start with one." He said, "Knickerbocker Glory?" I said, "I do get a certain amount of freedom in these trousers, yes."

Tommy Cooper? Ken Dodd? Sorry, that's two guesses.

Has the slight whiff of Tim Vine about it, but I'm probably barking up the wrong decade?!

I'd have to go with Tim Vine too - anything that sounds like Tommy Cooper but isn't usually is. Vine also came up with one of the shortest one-liners in the book, a mere four words. Three is hyphens make two words one word...

"Velcro - what a rip-off".

sorry to be an early contender for pedant of the year, but i was so surprised that the answer was Tommy Cooper and not Tim Vine I did a bit of googling and came up with this entlightening – if true? – story on the interweb.

Don't forget that 99% of facts on the internet are incorrect. The correct one per cent includes the fact that these jokes were coined by Tim 'time taveller' Vine.
