BRAKESPEARE: March councillor in league of his own as Irish joke controversy in Fenland newsletter continues
RECENT controversy over the Irish joke in the village newsletter in Christchurch has sparked a flurry of enthusiastic raconteurs eager to share with me their latest gag.
March town councillor Mark �Purser’s offering the other day seemed the best of a bad lot, keen as he was to recount the story of a lad arriving home from school to eagerly tell his dad he had got a part in the school play.
“‘That’s good,’ says dad. ‘What’s the part’?”
The son replies that he’s playing the role of a man who has been married 25 years.
“‘Never mind,’ says dad.
