Today I asked Oliver what our next post should be about. He suggested jokes because “we’ve got to keep people laughing!” He’s enjoying the idea of people reading the blog especially after one of our readers sent a wonderful book to Oliver in the mail. Thanks Karen G! The book is about Charles Darwin and the voyage of the Beagle, which should prepare us well for a visit to the Natural History Museum in London. Karen addressed the envelope to “Oliver Wyatt, soon to be intrepid traveller”!
So to keep you laughing here are some (planes, trains and automobiles) jokes handpicked by Oliver:
How do you know Aussie policeman are strong?
Because they can hold up traffic!
What’s the last thing that goes through a bee’s mind when he hits the windshield?
Why can’t penguins fly?
Because plane tickets are really expensive!
How do rabbits fly?
By hare plane!
What’s the difference between a kangaroo and a train carriage?
Well if you can’t tell the difference, I’m not going to try to explain it!
What price would a baby magpie buy a sports car for?
