Another story to file under "Funny if it wasn't true".

"Comedy Prime Minister Teresa May"? I've never found her remotely funny. Maggie May is worse than Maggie Thatcher as you knew exactly what you were getting with Thatcher but May pretends to care!

The original, and best, version I think you will find Sir!

Mind you he had help from Steve New and Danny Kustow. Much better than the adjusted "solo" version he used in the States later.

...and thanks to our beloved BBC for compiling these:

Are these the funniest Halloween jokes ever told?

Two cannibals were eating a clown – one said to the other: “Does he taste funny to you?" Tommy Cooper

11 Great Halloween One-Liners

Jimmy Carr - “It’s actually easy to tell if your house is haunted. It isn’t. Grow up.”

Tim Vine - “So I saw this bloke who was a cross between an ostrich and a serial killer. He was always burying other people’s heads in the sand.”

Milton Jones - “I was walking along today and on the road I saw a small baby ghost. Although thinking about it, it might have been a handkerchief.”

Mike Birbiglia - “Halloween is the one day of the year when it’s ok to ask 'What are you?'”

Tony Cowards - “The best way to annoy Count Dracula? Make him a little cross.”

Maura Quint - “For Halloween, I’m dressing up as my potential and getting wasted.”

Robin Williams - “If it’s the Psychic Network, why do they need a phone number?”

Kristen Schaal - “I often wonder, if you were to send a werewolf to the moon, would he be a werewolf permanently?”

Chris Dugdale - “How many people here are psychic? Raise my hand.”

Tim Vine - “I have spent the afternoon re-arranging the furniture in Dracula’s house… I was doing a bit of Fang-Shui.”

Maura Quint - “Halloween used to be the holiday where you went out of your way to be scared but now we just call that reading the news.”

I like the Chris Dugdale one best, although I've never heard of him before.
